    The squishes are almost childlike in their belief that if they only submit to the Establishment hard enough by offering gooey platitudes everything will work out fine for them, like a kid who keeps hoping that this time Santa’s really leaving a pony under the tree. But some people on the right need to understand and accept that there’s no kraken, and others on the right need to understand and accept that there’s no pony. The Jeb! Faction thinks it’s riding high now. Please clap as you see the media elevate them, and why not? They do the Establishment’s bidding....

    The media lie. All the time. They lied about former President Barack Obama's economy; they tried to make us believe the worst economy since the Great Depression was a great economy. Then they lied about President Donald Trump's soaring economy. They tried to make us believe the best economy in 50 years, maybe the best economy ever for middle-class Americans, was a bad economy. They lied about the Black Lives Matter riots. For months, we saw radical communists, Marxists and violent thugs riot, loot, burn, mug and murder while attacking police officers with bricks, pipes and Molotov cocktails. They burned...

    The coming vaccine fiasco is going to be yet another example of our idiotic ruling class’ utter incompetence and total paucity of wisdom. It is clear that there is going to be a huge backlash in the form of people refusing to take the vaccine. The vaccine may actually be quite good – real doctors (not fake doctors like Lady McBiden) have told me it is. I have no dog in the fight, since my bloodstream surges with powerful antibodies that have already defeated the puny COVID virus and render me invulnerable to its .05 percent death rate for my...

    The election of 2020 is perhaps the most bizarre affair in modern American history; not since the post Civil War turmoil of reconstruction and the election of 1876 have we seen the nation divided so completely along ideological lines. With the Republican party suffering from corruption allegations and public sentiment shifting against the federal occupation, the Democrats were gaining massive ground and a Democratic sweep was thought to be imminent. However, there were reports of ballot box fraud on BOTH sides of the aisle; in many voting districts the counted number of votes exceeded the number of people (often on...

    Back in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, before being woke was a thing, the quintessential middle-finger expression to those who controlled us was “Up the Establishment’s Arse.” Well not exactly arse (the British slightly more polite word), but you get the drift. The Establishment is a term describing a dominant group or elite that controls a polity. It may comprise a closed social group that selects or attracts its own members, or an entrenched business or political élite. The Obama Establishment embraces all of these. America’s “Establishment” often reflects the values of the sitting two-term U.S. president. Against all...

    Look around you at the smoldering ruins of American society, and it’s clear that you owe our garbage Establishment nothing. Not loyalty. Not respect. Not obedience. Nothing. It has failed you. And now it is dead to you. Tear it all down. Rip out its rotten foundations. Burn the poisonous debris. Rebuild it on a foundation of the Constitution. There was once a social contract out there that we all thought we all signed on to. You know the outlines of the implicit deal. We agreed to give up certain prerogatives and to provide prestige and prosperity to those people...

Here's the latest example from NPR: Experts Say Attack On Hunter Biden's Addiction Deepens Stigma For Millions October 16, 2020 BRIAN MANN [...] These attacks have raised alarm and sparked criticism from those who say the president and his allies are using a disease experienced by 20 million Americans as a political weapon.

    House Democrats are launching an investigation into President Trump’s treatment of the Secret Service during his bout with the coronavirus. Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, accused Trump of disregarding the safety of his protective detail when he left Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a short drive in his limousine to greet supporters who were outside the facility. Thompson called Trump’s Sunday night trip a “joyride” that risked the health and safety of the agents who had to accompany him on the trip. “So we can know more about how these events have affected the...

    In response to the recent riots and protests, America's biggest companies have committed hundreds of millions of dollars to so-called racial justice organizations such as Black Lives Matter (BLM) and denounced political speech on the right as hate. The conservative establishment has greeted this rise in corporate "wokeness" with a mixture of surprise, fury, and a sense of betrayal. In reality, it's just the chickens coming home to roost for the establishment right. For years, National Review, the Heritage Foundation, and the rest of the mainstream right have been silent about the growth of corporate power and its influence on...

    The marriage between Donald Trump and the Republican Establishment was born of convenience not love. The buttoned-up, Burke-quoting worshippers of Mammon (and/or white patriarchal Jesus) who occupy the commanding heights of American conservatism didn’t get into bed with a gauche, grimy Clinton donor until it saw no better way to move up in the world. In January 2016, National Review spoke for most of the GOP’s old guard when it declared Trump “a menace to American conservatism. But once in office, it enabled the Heritage Foundation and Koch Network to dictate the lion’s share of the administration regulatory policies and...

    Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has built a commanding 15-point national lead over President Trump in his bid for the White House, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. The survey, which was released on Sunday, found that 55 percent of registered voters say they would vote for the former vice president if the 2020 election were held today, while 40 percent say they'd back Trump. The findings represent a substantial shift in support for Biden, who led Trump by just 2 points in a similar poll released in March and by 10 points in May. The drop...

    A recent Foreign Affairs essay predictably gives the public a false binary choice, blames the current administration, and defends the foreign policy establishment. Who do you think is responsible for the current coronavirus foreign influences fiasco? If you ask the Washington foreign policy establishment, the answer is evident. It is President Trump’s disdain for “the foreign policy establishment” that has led to this current crisis.This is their same answer for every problem humanity has faced since 2016. If only we listened to the establishment! If only they learned their lesson in 2016. Apparently not, if you go by the Foreign...

    Virus management is about power and control, the two things the elite always want and therefore don’t want to relinquish even when the virus recedes. The big-picture story of American politics of the last four years has been a battle royale between elite power structures and millions of ordinary Americans. Donald Trump’s 2016 election win, the Russia collusion hoax, and the impeachment drama were all essentially tussles between elite control and democratic norms, between the will of the powerful and the will of the 2016 voters, a.k.a. Trump supporters. A loose assortment of unelected bureaucrats, D.C. power players, Democratic leaders,...

    The Democratic establishment seems more concerned with protecting themselves than with beating President Trump. Heading out of the Nevada primary last week, the Democratic Party establishment was in a bit of a panic. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., had gotten the most votes in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada. The establishment’s initial pick for the nomination, former Vice President Joe Biden, had been struggling for months on the campaign trail, sometimes seeming to be confused about who and where he was.Megabillionaire Mike Bloomberg, who had entered the fray to save the party from Sanders and Biden, revealed himself to be a...

    After Joe Biden's blowout victory in South Carolina Saturday and the swift withdrawal of Tom Steyer, "Mayor Pete" Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, the decisive day of the race for the Democratic nomination, Super Tuesday, is at hand. Fourteen states -- including California and Texas and delegate-rich Colorado, North Carolina and Virginia -- hold primaries today, where 40% of the delegates to the Democratic convention will be chosen. Yet consider where the Democratic Party, the party of diversity, America's "progressive" party, the all-inclusive party of persons of color, African Americans, Asians and Hispanics, the party of women and LGBT, will...

    After 3 attempts, 32 years, and 5 primaries as a candidate, Joe Biden finally won his first set of delegates in his quest to be the Democratic Party’s nominee for president. Within hours, the powers that be in the liberal establishment saw their opening and pounced on the remaining candidates, applying pressure to get them to drop out and support Biden. With no clear path to the nomination for anyone, thanks largely to the screwed up way in which Democrats distribute their delegates proportionally, rather than fight, Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg took whatever they were offered as payoff and...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Latest on the 2020 presidential campaign (all times local): 9:15 p.m. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is lumping the “Democratic establishment” in with the corporate and Republican establishment and saying they can’t stop him. Sanders is the favorite in Saturday’s Nevada caucuses after winning New Hampshire and essentially tying for first in Iowa. His rivals and some party centrists have become alarmed that the self-declared democratic socialist could win the nomination as his opponents split the non-Sanders vote. Sanders is an independent who caucuses with Democrats. In Nevada he has stressed his independence from the party....

Accepting an award for excellence in diplomacy at Georgetown University, Yovanovitch also took an apparent shot at President Donald Trump's foreign policy: "An amoral, keep 'em guessing foreign policy that substitutes threats, fear and confusion for trust, cannot work over the long haul." During her remarks and a question-and-answer session, Yovanovitch never said Trump's name and...
