  • Condundrum: If Trump’s getting so unpopular …

    The RNCC and RSC could bring in a lot more if the elected officials would do what they were elected to do—like repeal Obamacare or otherwise do the job of the people. Running the country should not be a show of political posturing.

    The DHS deemed Antifa a domestic terrorist organization early in July.

    I signed the petition when it was at 17,000 signatures.

    I parked on someone’s scarf once. I had no idea until the store started announcing that they were looking for a car suspiciously like mine.

    Well, I was keeping it from blowing away. Yep.

    I'm thinking that doing this for 8 years is going to look darn silly.

    I remember they went overboard lunatic on Reagan, too. And I was quite liberal at the time--the MSM kept up this constant drumbeat of how bad Reagan was, how he was about to trigger WWIII at any second, etc. etc. At some point, I began to realize that the MSM was predicting all kinds of bad stuff that never happened. That was not what finally convinced me to reject liberalism, but it was a strong life lesson that did lay a good foundation.

    I can't help but think that a lot of young people are going to have a similar realization when they see that the media breathlessly expounds on the evils of Trump over and over, and nothing pans out. The Russia narrative never had substance, and the media has suddenly dropped it. Trying to blame Trump for Charlottesville looks to be a flop, as well. The calls for impeachment are just plain silly--articles of impeachment filed for the reason that President Trump did not condemn Charlottesville events the way that some Democrat senator thinks they should have been condemned? Who can possibly live up to such a standard? And so on. Some young people are actually smart enough to figure out what's happening, and they will also drop their liberal indoctrination.

  • A majority of Americans want to preserve Confederate monuments: Reuters/Ipsos poll

    The reason for trying to erase the past is to get people mired in a miserable present while hiding from them the fact that their predecessors had better. Those who would keep people caught in a miserable present then make false promises of a better future in order to keep the people complacent and docile.

    Of course we should keep the statues and monuments.

    However, I am all for removing the party of slavery and racism and not allowing any member of that party to hold elected office ever again. In fact, I would fully support removing every member of that party from office now, for the good of the country. Not that that would happen.

    Does anyone ever go to jail if they are Democrats?

    Of course they do. Why do you think Democrats want felons to vote?

    How to impeach Trump:

    1) Get him to commit a crime.
    2) Impeach.

    Easy!

    Antifa posted this on their Facebook page and are being blasted in comments for it. It seems many of their supporters did not realize they were against capitalists, classical liberals, and the Constitution. I guess some of their useful idiots are not happy with this message:

    It seems to be the case that radical leftists believe that the majority of people actually support them and their goals, but that they are too intimidated by the regime to speak up. And if the radical leftists pave the way by bravely attacking the tools of the regime, the oppressed people will rise up in glorious revolution against the regime.

    I have a relative who supports the extreme left--this is what this relative says. I've seen the belief expressed in other places, as well.

    It sounds good. But there are a LOT of gullible people who believe them and not us. They’ve painted us with enemy stripes and it’s been successful with the Gullibles.

    You do it little by little. Instead of arguing with them, challenge them. For example, if they spout the "Trump is just like Hitler" meme, ask them to explain how. What did Hitler stand for, and what does Trump stand for? In what way are these similar? Which policies of Trump are similar to Hitler policies, and how do those policies lead to a failed Socialist state similar to that of Hitler's?

    I play MMORPGs, which usually have chat channels. Very often, someone will pipe up with some leftist meme. Recently, someone started spouting about how Trump is a traitor. So I challenged them, and got the response "Trump! Russia!" I asked them what evidence is there. I asked them if they were aware of how Hillary sold 1/5 of our uranium supply to Russia in exchange for a donation of tens of millions to her "foundation." Someone else started asking those questions as well. The person claiming that Trump is a traitor disappeared without supporting their claim.

    At least since Billy Clinton sold our sub secrets to the Chinese when he was running for his second term.

    I didn't know about that. I only knew about his assisting China with missile technology and giving North Korea the means and green light to go forth with nuclear weapons technology.

    Truly, the Clintons are traitors.

    It was a huge red flag that Bill Clinton as a student had spent several weeks in the USSR, a period in which we know little about his activities. But the MSM never covered that--instead they chose to lionize him. Had they been honest in their reporting, I doubt he would have been elected.

    The Democratic Party fought civil rights for a century.

    They still do.

    The difference is that prior to the Civil Rights Act, democrats were openly vile and crude with their hatred of minorities. Now, they honey-coat their hatred.

    Whether they sneeringly call blacks "lazy n-words" or condescendingly sympathize with blacks for being not quite as capable as everyone else, the fundamental message remains the same. They do not want blacks (or other minorities) to have self-determination.

    We sure haven’t heard much about the driver and why he drove in the crowd, wonder why?

    It may be because of the reports that his car was being attacked, and he may have reacted out of fear. The armchair sleuth brigade took action within minutes to dig down into what really happened there.

    Just as the armchair sleuth brigade has stopped the media narrative in its tracks by hitting the social media with all kinds of background information about the "Unite the Right" and the Antifa, it looks like they have also prevented the media from painting the driver of that car as a cartoon villain.

    The left, like islam, IS radical. No qualifiers are needed. No-Alt needed

    I qualify it. I call it the "violent left." Whether it is Nazi, KKK, BLM, Antifa, Progressive, Communist, etc., it is merely showing different facets of the same malignant ideology.

    So far, every Repuke I’ve heard ‘defending’ our side has failed miserably. They immediately go on the defensive. IOW, they’ve capitulated and lost.

    I really think there is a lot of Stockholm syndrome going on here. When a republican is elected and goes to DC, he or she is bombarded with abusive negativism from bullies in the media and on the Democrat side of the aisle. It is psychology: some profoundly mistreated people adopt the ideology and goals of those who abuse them. Patty Hearst, for example, went so far as to assist her captors to commit a bank robbery in the 1970s. Abused women typically blame themselves for being victims of abuse.

    And so on.

    The solution, I think, is to end the custom of having politicians move to DC. They should stay home, where they are near their constituents who will remind them every day of why they were elected, and provide some buffer between the politicians and the hostile, anti-American left.

    So you are safe and life is good for you.

    Enjoy the illusion.

    Do you purposely go to places where there is a significant chance of becoming a victim of crime or terrorism? Or are you a big, strong man and therefore feel you can go anywhere without worry?

    You see, I'm not a big, strong man--I'm a small woman. So I routinely think about safety and weigh risk before I decide to do anything.

    And given the choice between attending a rally in DC, where Antifa militia members may be bussed in to attack unarmed peaceful citizens, or an art fair in town, which has never been the target of an anti-American militia, I chose to stay in town, even though my son wanted to go to DC.

    The art fair was very nice. I found some artists who might be able to make jewelry out of the rocks I brought home from Mongolia last year.

    Your la-di-da pose is nothing if not mocking.

    Antifa attacks wherever they find a target.

    Except in in your rarified world, at least according to you.

    I really do not understand.

    Antifa clearly is not attacking randomly; they are attacking people who are peacefully assembling in support of non-socialist causes. Like many people, I choose not to go where Antifa is carrying out their acts of terror.

    How is it mocking for me to say that I choose to be where Antifa is not?

    Would you also think it is mocking if I say that I avoid going to Baltimore, especially certain areas of the city, for safety?

    Is this (the city planning to deny the permit) because they do not think they can provide enough security to prevent the violent “counter-protesters” from crashing the rally?

    I’m thinking that if the security is massive for the rallies, the “counter-protesters” will not be able to cause mayhem in the way that they want.

    Has anyone noticed that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has been uncharacteristically quiet once the news of her foreign IT “help” became public?

    I have to wonder, did she knowingly hire spies as IT help?

    And then the MSM complains that Trump keeps calling them out for fake news.

    I would like to see one media outlet name a violent right-wing group. Just one. I’ve never seen it happen, and doubt it ever will.

    Now, I’ve seen them describe violent leftist groups as “right-wing”—but that’s not what I’m asking for. I want to see an example of an actual right-wing group that is violent.
