Do They Even Know What a President Is?

So Kamala Harris, whose qualifications for the job are, well, nothing, has suspended her quest for the Democrat presidential nomination. Never mind that she was polling a red-hot 2 percent. Never mind that she’d already spent about 130 percent of her campaign budget.

Heck, no. The real reason she’s had to drop out was… [trumpet fanfare, drum roll, etc.]… Racism and Sexism! An “activist” says so, so it must be true (https://pjmedia.com/trending/leader-of-anti-trump-resistance-on-kamala-harris-dropping-out-racism-and-sexism/).

Yep. According to Leah Greenberg, a self-proclaimed poobah of #theResistance–translation: a non-entity–it would be “catastrophic” for the Party to have an “all-white male” debate, never mind that Corey “Spartacus” Booker and that doofus Castro will still be there: but never mind. “The implicit racism and sexism of ‘electability’ is deeply damaging to democracy,” she babbles.

I don’t know. Wouldn’t it be infinitely more damaging to just about everything, if Kamala actually became our president?

But for a leftid worm-brain, the only thing that matters is the externals. Character counts for nothing. Ability counts for nothing. Fitness for the office counts for nothing. You want to give somebody the authority to sign or veto legislation, to launch missiles, to negotiate with foreign leaders, to be the leader in shaping public policy–you do? Okay! Just remember that the main considerations are that person’s sex (nyah, nyah, I won’t say “gender”!) and skin pigmentation. She can be a psychotic evil numbskull, but as long as she’s a Woman Of Color, that’s all us activists are interested in.

I can’t imagine what a liberal thinks the president is. Or ought to be. But surely the very last items on the list should be sex and color. Those characteristics are entirely irrelevant.

“I don’t care who does my heart surgery–it just has to be a Woman Of Color! it doesn’t matter that she doesn’t know how! The only thing that matters is Justice! Social Justice!”

Whenever a lib speaks the word “justice,” you know he’s just snuck the dried pea out from under the walnut shell. Now there’s nothing under any of the shells. That’s leftism. In a nutshell, as it were.


‘The “Town Hall Debate”: a Prediction’ (2012)

Image result for images of obama-romney debate

Abbot and Costello were not available.

Later this morning, when I get back from the doctor’s (just a checkup, don’t worry), I want to write about the total lack of seriousnessness with which we go about choosing a president.

https://leeduigon.com/2012/10/15/the-town-hall-debate-a-prediction/

I used to cover “town hall meetings,” hundreds of ’em. They are about the best argument against democracy that anyone has ever thought of. These are dog and pony shows, with just about everything set up in advance. That’s why New Jersey resorted to an Open Public Meetings Act, years ago; but all that did was move the choreography from the caucus room to the phone lines.

There are times when I can easily suspect Romney of having lost on purpose. But then he demonstrates what a doofus he still is today, and I realize nobody had to pay him to be a lousy candidate. He just had a natural gift for it.


‘Why “Trump is Winning” is No Mystery’ (2015)

See the source image

President *Batteries Not Included and Speaker John “Crybaby” Boehner–working together to screw America

So there I was in 2015, predicting Donald Trump would win the Republican primary. A political science degree might not be much use, but at least I’m a very good political scientist, if I do say so myself.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/09/17/why-trump-is-winning-is-no-mystery/

And this was several years before Trump’s actual election made it glaringly obvious that Washington, D.C., Republicans and Democrats together, is just one big happy family up on Capitol Hill, sucking our blood and picking our pockets. This is why Establishment Republicans are always content to be No. 2 in a two-party system. And that’s how we wound up with ruptured borders, Obamacare, same-sex pseudomarriage, and all the rest of the D.C. fun pack.

Donald Trump has pulled off the tarpaulin and exposed the toxic tar pool underneath.


‘Why Aren’t I 50 Points Ahead?’ (2016)

See the source image

Don’t let this happen to your country!

I first said several months ago that Hillary Clinton was going to run for president again, and since then, a lot of commentators have joined me in that opinion. Remember what a great run she made of it last time?

https://leeduigon.com/2016/09/23/why-arent-i-50-points-ahead/

(Yeah, Hillary–go on, do it! This time it’ll work! This time the Deep State will see to it that you win! Last time was just a fluke. Go on, do it!)

As many times as it takes to drive the Democrat Party into the ground for good, that’s how many times I hope she runs.

And no,

But I don’t want anybody getting so overconfident in 2020 that they stay home, or vote for a third-party candidate, or do anything that could possibly be construed as helping the Democrats get their dirty hands back around our country’s neck. ‘Cause this time they won’t let go.

 


‘Oh, Boy! How to Politicize Your Thanksgiving’ (2015)

Liberals can’t enjoy themselves unless they’re ruining someone else’s enjoyment.

Remember this? In 2015 the Democrat National Committee actually came out with an online kit to equip leftists to browbeat their families on Thanksgiving.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/11/25/oh-boy-how-to-politicize-your-thanksgiving/

This was all you needed, supposedly, to make the Republicans in your family leave the table and go off to their rooms to sulk. And you would want to do that because ______?

Because you’re a lib, of course, and that’s the sort of thing you do.


Nooze & Politics: It’s Bloomberg

See the source image

The horror! The horror!

Former New York City Mayor Michael “Soda Ban” Bloomberg has announced himself as a candidate for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination. Bloomberg, the ninth-richest person on earth, also owns Bloomberg News, an enormous media enterprise.

Soda Ban has announced “new rules” for journalists working for Bloomberg News:

No “investigating” any Democrat candidate, especially him.

No unsigned editorials.

The members of the editorial board who used to write the editorials have joined their boss’s political campaign team. It’d be too hard to be on two political campaign teams at once.

I mean, okay, sure, the guy who owns the newspaper is going to have his views represented in it–on the editorial page. Not disguised as factual news reports. I realize that what I’m saying is ridiculously old-fashioned, but I can’t help it–that was how we did journalism, back when I was an editor and reporter. You put the opinion on the opinion page.

But this is breathtakingly flagrant. This is hypocrisy on steroids. Bloomberg Nooze will continue to “investigate” President Donald Trump and any other Republican, but all the Democrats are out of bounds.

Mayor Soda Ban has already spent $34 million on campaign ads, and he’s only just started. He now has made sure that at least one very large news corporation won’t be peering through his keyhole. The others will probably all follow suit.

Our free and independent press pioneered this sort of non-coverage by refusing ever to examine the background, credentials, and character of President *Batteries Not Included. But that’s only because they were so busy praising him.

Is this a shameful age to be living in, or what?


Election? What Election?

Jimmy asks, “What elephant?” But Nancy Pelosi knows. It’s the one that’s going to stomp her party in the next election.

So the Squeaker of the House suggests maybe we’d all be better off if we didn’t have the 2020 presidential election. Her exact words:

“The weak response to these hearings [the House impeachment charade] has been, ‘Let the election decide.’ That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because the President is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCJ8emSWTQk).

Dangerous? Dangerous to whom? True, anytime we hold an election, we run the risk of putting some Democrat wacko in office. That’s dangerous. Correct me if I’m wrong, but Squeaker Pelosi seems to be saying here that the 2020 election is already illegitimate. And it’s all President Donald Trump’s fault.

But he’s not the one pre-emptively declaring our next election illegitimate.

I don’t know what she’s bitching about. There was nothing wrong with the 2016 election that a little more voter fraud wouldn’t have cured for the Democrats. So you have more illegal aliens voting, more dead people, more fictitious people, and more people voting multiple times–and plenty of cars with trunks filled with Democrat ballots held in reserve. All the old tricks. They were lazy last time, and it cost them.

And what are they afraid of? Don’t they believe those innumerable polls they trot out on the Drudge Report, Fox Nooze, CNN, showing any randomly-selected, off-the-sidewalk Democrat beating President Trump hands down? Like, Kamala Harris is down to about 1% in Democrat primary polling but she’s still a shoo-in to beat Trump. Or so we’re told.

Even so–maybe it’d be better to call off the election and keep on holding hearings until they finally find some way to railroad the president out of office. And then, just to be on the safe side, appoint a Democrat to hold the White House. Maybe even make it hereditary.  A few more amendments to the Patriot Act, and they’re in the clover.


UK Labour Party: Socialism on Steroids

See the source image

It’s really not hard to imagine this happening here. In fact, it’s quite easy to imagine this same bilge being spouted by any Democrat presidential candidate.

British Labour Party bigwig John McDonnell, pushing for a Labour majority in Parliament, says a Labour government will ban companies from the London Stock Exchange for “failing to act on Climate Change” (https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/11/20/climate-hysteria-labour-ban-companies-stock-exchange-failing-act-climate-change/). We are free to wonder what “action” would meet with his approval.

But he doesn’t want to stop at letting the government decide who can buy and sell stocks and who can’t. He’s also taking aim at a massive “redistribution” scheme which would supposedly do away with “billionaires.”

“No one needs or deserves that much money. It is obscene,” he says. Deserves? The government’s going to decide how rich you’re allowed to be?

Well, yeah–McDonnell has another plan to give the government the authority to fix wages and salaries. You’ll earn no more than the government thinks you should earn.

Who does he think he is–Bernie Sanders? Elizabeth Warren? Can anyone explain the difference between them and him? Can anyone even see the difference?

Freedom is fragile, and there’s always someone eager to take it away from others. Politics is one of Original Sin’s favorite playgrounds.

Beware all that free stuff held out to you by socialism. It comes with a very high price tag.


‘The Resistance’ Endangers America

https://youtu.be/MeMwdtbPR6g

This is no longer about Donald Trump, or anyone else the Far Left Crazy, aka the Democrat Party, wants to impeach.

It’s about how our country is to be governed from now on–by laws, due process, and respect for the American people, or by savage partisanship, irregular and unpredictable procedures, and intimidation.

Attorney General William Barr on Friday gave a hard-nosed speech on this subject (https://townhall.com/tipsheet/bronsonstocking/2019/11/16/attorney-general-barr-rails-against-the-resistance-senate-democrats-and-activ-n2556601), calling out “the Resistance” for its continual attempts “to sabotage the functioning of the executive branch and his [President Trump’s] administration.”

To claim, as they do, that our current government “is not legitimate,” Barr said, is “a very dangerous and indeed incendiary notion to import into the politics of a democratic republic.” The Congressional Democrats’ “avalanche of subpoenas is plainly designed to incapacitate the executive branch and is indeed touted as such.”

They have made their purpose clear; and their tactics are “a scorched……………-earth, no-holds-barred war of resistance against this administration… No other president has been subjected to such sustained efforts to debilitate his agenda,” the attorney general said.

Progressives, he said, treat politics as their religion, and “their holy mission” is “to use the coercive power of the State to remake man and society in their own image, according to an abstract ideal of perfection… by any means necessary.”

The nooze media wing of the Democrat Party was quick to brand the speech as “partisan”–as if they ever say or do anything that is not flagrantly partisan–and “outrageous,” as if the Far Left loons in Congress are anything but outrageous. We can no longer believe anything they say.

But Mr. Barr has hit the nail on the head. If these wicked persons get away with this, if they go unpunished by the voters in the next election, they will be encouraged to do it again. And again. And no president will ever be safe again from a hyper-partisan Congress that flouts due process and makes up their procedures as they go along.

Somewhere along the way, despite the best and wisest efforts of our country’s founders, our public servants became our rulers. People who come to Capitol Hill poor go home rich. It’s a non-stop party up there, at our expense.

It has to be stopped–or we will lose our republic.


Impeach… Me?

Image result for images of crazy adam schiff

The Kook’ll get you if you don’t watch out!

Uh-oh. It’s looking bad for me.

Everybody who reads this blog knows I voted for President Trump and support his re-election. It’s on record–nothing I can do about it. No one will believe me if I say, “Wait, hold on, I see the light! Hey! Evo Morales has been kicked out of his job as socialist dictator of Bolivia–he can be our president!” Too late for that.

But the decisive horrible promble is… today I got a couple of views from Ukraine. That is to say, I have been in contact, never mind how fleetingly, with certain persons in Ukraine. And you’re not allowed to do that unless you’re a Biden abidin’ with the gas company.

The word has already come down from the House of Ninnies: I must be impeached. The fact that I’m not president of anything is immaterial. They can always make me president of something and then kick me out. Oh, the shame of it.
