One of Our Idiots Is Missing

Has anybody seen David Hogg lately? The Democrats’ teen idol, at the start of this summer, was all over the place like fruit flies.

It was a prediction you didn’t need a crystal ball to make. Elevated to national prominence with dazzling speed, the teenage nasty became the Dems’ anti-Second Amendment poster boy. And no one, but no one, was allowed to criticize him… ’cause that would make you a bully. Never mind that he mocked and cursed his own parents in front of TV cameras. He was a survivor of the Parkland Shooting! And we all know by now, don’t we, that Anointed Survivors–anointed by liberals, that is–are sacrosanct.

But then, in August, Little Mr. Nastyface started to bite the hand that fed him. He called for age limits on politicians, mocked Grande Dame Nancy Pelosi for being “old,” and lamented that “Older Dems just won’t move the f*** off the plate” (always very hard for him to construct a sentence without the f-bomb: one of his endearing traits) (https://leeduigon.com/2018/08/28/dems-teen-wiz-kid-bashes-old-folks/).

In September, sharing a podium with veteran gasbag Michael Moore, the idiot Hogg called upon Canadian citizens to vote for Democrats in America’s elections next month. When it was whispered into his shell-like ear that Canadians can’t vote in our elections, he hit upon the idea of asking Canadians to donate to Democrat candidates. That, too, is illegal. Moore had to take over the microphone before Hogg dug their hole any deeper.

Well, let’s see. Other than being a boorish, ignorant little gitt, for a little while there David Hogg was solid gold. But then he did a Cindy Sheehan–remember Mother Sheehan? When she snapped at the Clintons’ ankles, she, too, became invisible–and that, it seems, was the end of him. Sigh: he coulda been a contender.

Amazing how fast some of these media mahdis come and go…

P.S.–I have been unable to confirm rumors that Groundhog Day is going to be replaced by Hogg-Hog Day: David Hogg comes out from wherever he is and if he drops an f-bomb, we get two more weeks of winter.


Rand Paul: Tone Down the Crazy Rhetoric

Image result for images of violent protesters

Senator Rand Paul has warned that today’s increasingly heated rhetoric, the vast majority of it provided by Democrats, could lead to violence–maybe even assassinations.

Ya think?

“I really worry that someone is going to be killed,” Paul said, in a recent radio broadcast (https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/410610-rand-paul-on-political-climate-i-really-worry-that-someone-is-going-to-be). By “ratcheting up the conversation,” he said, “unstable people” may be incited to commit murder.

In 2017 a manic liberal tried to shoot down a whole group of Republican legislators at a baseball practice, and very nearly killed Congressman Steve Scalise of Louisiana. “This is for health care!” explained the shooter.

Think of the throng of enraged Democrats pounding and clawing at the Supreme Court’s door while Justice Brett Kavanagh was being sworn in this weekend. What would have happened, had they been able to break down the door?

But that’s how the Democrat Party wants our country to be run from now on.

If you have to dig a tunnel to the polls this year, so you can vote against every Democrat on the ballot… do it.


Hillary Urges More Un-Civility

Let’s see, now… Democrats shoot Republicans when they’re playing baseball, chase them out of restaurants, publish their personal information so any domestic terrorist can get at them at home, demand that all America instantly believe any and all unsupported allegations made against Republicans–

And Hillary Clinton counsels them, “Hey, no more Mr. Nice Guy!”

And “civility” can only be practiced, she says, after Democrats regain control of the government (https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/09/politics/hillary-clinton-civility-congress-cnntv/index.html).

Well, gee, at least one Democrat tried to kill Republicans. And who knows what they would have done to Brett Kavangh, had they been able to break down the Supreme Court’s doors: which they tried to do.

Would wholesale murder of Republicans satisfy Hillary? Or would Dems have to burn their victims’ bones as well?

This monster was almost president. And don’t be too surprised if she tries again in 2020. All she has to do is rack up 20 or 30 points against a scrambling mob of lilliputian Democrat presidential wannabes, none of whom will get more than 5 to 10 percent of the vote.

But wow, you could’ve fooled me. I thought the Dems got rid of civility sometime in the 1980s and haven’t touched it since.


Another Warning from History

Image result for images of thucydides

Thucydides–we ought to listen to him.

I gather from reading Thucydides’ history of the Peloponnesian War, in which he participated personally as a general of Athens, that the one thing, more than any other, that destroyed Athens’ primitive democracy was hysteria. A perfect storm of politics, personality clashes, and sheer irrational decision-making moved the Athenians, just when they had gained the upper hand against the Spartans, to declare war on Syracuse–for no good reason!–the most populous and best-defended city in the ancient Greek world.

The Athenian fleet and army, commanded by the one general, Nicias, who opposed the scheme–his political enemies put him in charge to punish him–went to Sicily and tried to conquer Syracuse by siege. The result was Athens’ entire army wiped out or captured, and the loss of the war to Sparta. The victors abolished Athens’ form of government, erased the Athenian leadership, and saw to it that Athens never rose again.

It makes for rather grim reading.

Knowing their history, our country’s founders chose not to give America a democracy, but rather a republic, a more stable form of government. But even a republic must be carefully maintained if it is to survive: and in our case, many of our leaders seem to think the United States is an Athenian-style “democracy,” and act accordingly.

And so hysteria, just as it did in Athens long ago, is gaining the upper hand.

There are no compelling reasons not to confirm Brett Kavanagh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. What we have, instead, is a lust for power among Democrats, who have long used the Court as a way to impose their will on America–think abortion, and “gay marriage”–via innovations that never had enough public support to be legislated in the ordinary way.

And as anyone can see who follows the news, their chief weapon in this power struggle is hysteria. They are more than willing to circumvent, or even destroy, such obstacles as presumption of innocence, the requirement of actual evidence to sustain an accusation, and ordinary decency–anything to get their way.

Now it has come down to this: Kavanagh must be confirmed by the Republican majority in the Senate, if these tactics are not to prevail and become the whole new way of deciding public policy in America.

This controversy has become our Syracuse.

The Senate Republicans must overcome their habitual cowardice and stand up for the rule of law against the rule of hysteria.

We’ll be in terrible trouble if they don’t.


‘Hillary Warns: No Criticism Allowed’ (2015)

Let’s look back a mere three years, shall we?

Hillary Clinton, running for president, makes it crystal clear, what kind of tinpot tyrant she intends to be:

https://leeduigon.com/2015/03/26/hillary-warns-no-criticism-allowed/

Could we all wake up, please, and try to appreciate what a bullet–no, what a cannonball!–we dodged in that 2016 election? We should all get down on our knees every day and thank God for sparing us that Clinton presidency. And then get up and resolve to go to the polls next month and make sure her Democrat Party loses again.

There’s life in this old serpent yet, and she will bite us if she can.


‘Tyranny is Back in Style’ (2015)

The Left will never stop fighting and clawing for absolute control over other people’s lives. Here’s some of what they were up to, three years ago.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/04/09/tyranny-is-back-in-style/

Yes, in 2016 we threw a monkey wrench into their plans by electing Donald Trump. Since then, they’ve been busy trying to undo that election. Try to imagine what our country would be like today, two years into Hillary Clinton’s first term.

When I try, it’s a waking nightmare.


Hillary: Abolish Electoral College

Image result for images of hillary clinton angry

Still in full tantrum mode

The Greek historian Polybius praised the Roman Republic for its system of checks and balances. As a Greek, he had personal experience of “democracy” self-destructing into hysteria and mob rule.

Today presidential wannabe Hillary Clinton, still unable to come to terms with her defeat by Donald Trump and the American people, continues to push for the abolition of one of our country’s firmest and most successful checks and balances–the electoral college (https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/09/17/hillary-clinton-abolish-electoral-college-because-donald-trump-is-destroying-america/).

Why? Because Donald Trump won, and he’s “a racist.” And he’s destroying an “American democracy” that does not exist and never did: our Constitution guarantees us a republican form of government, not a democracy. Our founders read Polybius.

Of course, it would require a constitutional amendment to replace the electoral college with a straight popular vote. You don’t “just do it.” But I don’t think Democrats know that.

Without the electoral college, every presidential election would be dominated by Far Left crazy states California and New York; and a regular injection of illegal alien votes would ensure a perpetual Democrat presidency. Can’t have any of those voter ID laws, etc. That would be racist.

The electoral college protects America from being hijacked by a handful of states with big populations. It has always protected us from that. “Democracy,” Polybius wrote, never fails to degenerate, first into mob rule, finally into dictatorship. Sort of like what happened in Venezuela.

If you love your country, don’t even think about voting for a Democrat.


Are We Freakin’ Crazy?

Honestly, it distresses me to know that there are people who actually want Democrats to win. And the first thing I see in the nooze this morning is the exceedingly hard-to-swallow claim that the same American people that put Donald Trump in the White House are now 14 points up for handing over power to the Democrats.

Look, if you’re even thinking about voting for a Democrat, and you’re not certifiably crazy, and you’re not deep-down wicked, here’s what you’ll be voting for:

Repeal of your tax cuts. No more immigration laws. Obamacare II. Jail for Climate Change Deniers. (Yes, it was a plank in Hillary’s 2016 platform.) Impeachment of President Trump for the high crime of Not Being One of Them. Transformation of government agencies into partisan political apparatus of the Democrat Party. Lots more money for Planned Parenthood. Transgender “rights.” A blizzard of new regulations to impede creation of wealth.

Plus, in all probability, lots and lots of violence in the streets as the Far Left–that would be the Dems that you guys just voted for–tries to exterminate dissent and opposition.

Boy, if we put those people back in charge of Congress–

Well, just don’t!

They say social media is powerful, when it comes to influencing voter choice.

Use it!


An Experiment in Open Borders

Image result for images of drawing a square

Just in case you’re not convinced by photos of hordes of non-Europeans swarming into Western Europe, here is a simply way to understand the effects of open borders.

Start with a picture of a square. One has been provided. Copy it onto a piece of paper.

Now erase the square’s borders.

What happens to the square is what happens to a country if you erase its borders.

If you can still say, after that, “We don’t need no stinkin’ borders,” you’re a Democrat and there’s but little hope for you.


Rants for All Occasions

Image result for images of political rantl

One of the things that makes it so easy to be a liberal is that you behave the same way, no matter what the occasion. With this in mind, it’s necessary to redefine some of our more common social rituals.

Funeral: A political event in which participants take the occasion to denounce their political rivals, who are barred from attending, let alone speaking. The dear departed is a prop.

Christening: A political event in which participants take the occasion to denounce their political rivals. The baby is a prop.

Wedding: A political event in which participants take the occasion to denounce their political rivals. The bride and groom are props.

See how easy it is? Any churl can do it.
