Political Science–and Tarzan

Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs (1988, Hardcover) for sale  online | eBay

Speaking of orgies of sexual harassment (https://leeduigon.com/2021/10/08/californias-state-legislature-a-tar-pit-of-sexual-harassment-2017/), and the fact that #MeToo went away when they kept finding big-name liberals chasing women into the rest rooms, I learned everything I needed to know about this aspect of politics from just two sources.

First was an account of Czar Peter the Great’s visit to London in 1698. They called it his “Grand Embassy.” The English government provided him and his entourage with a luxury townhouse, servants, and free everything.

And the czar and his entourage, who had apparently never sat on chairs before, wrecked the place. The Grand Embassy behaved like a rock band. They brought horses indoors to race them up and down the marble staircase. They strewed garbage everywhere.

Because they could. No one would dare tell them to stop.

Equally illuminating are Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan stories. In these, the biggest, strongest ape is king until another ape can kill him; and while he’s king, he gets to mate with any female he wants, he’s entitled to first choice of whatever food is going, and there’s no way to hold him accountable for anything he does. Reading these, I got to thinking, “Gee, that sure sounds familiar! Where have I see this before?”

Or rather, where have I not seen it?

That’s the politics of this world: do whatever you please for as long as you can get away with it. The Big Ape rules. That’s the politics of the City of Man.

We prefer the City of God.

My Newswithviews Column, Sept. 30 (‘Shut Up and Pay’)

If you don’t want your kids being “taught” Critical Race Theory, transgender, and down with America, then you don’t want public education.

But the Democrat bagman running for governor of Virginia thinks it’s none of your doggone business, what the unionized Far Left Crazy teachers “teach” your kids.

Shut Up and Pay

How do you run for governor on this? You have to believe people want to have no say in their children’s education, that they want to be insulted, that they want their kids to be taught to hate themselves, hate other kids, hate their country… I mean, people are actually going to vote for this guy? Say it ain’t so, Joe!

Does he have a reason to believe the public outrage over Critical Race Theory is just going to blow over?

Well, if he’s right about that, then the people will deserve what they get.

Governor Wannabe to Parents: ‘Shut Up and Pay’

Terry McAuliffe Draws on Bill Clinton Magic as Lead Widens at End of Va.  Race - ABC News

Does he still hear his master’s voice?

Terry “Clinton’s Bagman” McAuliffe wants to be governor of Virginia again, replacing that abortion guy, whatsisname. So he was in a debate t’other night, the subject of, um, “education” came up, and this is what he said:

“I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they ought to teach” (https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/09/terry-mcauliffe-thinks-parents-shouldnt-have-a-say-in-what-schools-teach-their-children/).

Virginia school boards have been in hot water with parents lately for teaching racist “Critical Race Theory.”

In the real world, where there’s still some semblance of justice, if you pay for something, you own it.

But in the bizarro world of public education, you pay and pay and get no say. Just shut up and pay! And stay out of the way as we “teach” your children to hate themselves, hate each other, hate their country, and hate their families. We’ll turn ’em into progressives no matter what!

Two things have to go, if America is to survive as America.

The Democrat Party, and public education. There are at least a hundred ways of doing things better than they do them.

‘Texas: Machines Flip Trump Votes to Clinton’ (2016)

All that cheating, and she still lost.

Last year’s presidential election does not stand alone in its corruption. The one four years before it was pretty dirty, too.

And we had a hoo-hah over the voting machines! We had four years to get that problem fixed; and we didn’t.

Texas: Machines Flip Trump Votes to Clinton

“Election officials” (LOL) attributed the complaints to “voter error,” nothin’ wrong here, toldja we shouldn’t let those peasants vote. They only screw it up!

Even with all that cheating, Hillary Clinton lost. Lost big. They really should have tried to find someone a little less odious.

Meanwhile, if we don’t fix the corruption that’s set into our electoral process, 2022 will be another travesty.

‘Lib Noozie: It’s Against the Law for You Peasants to Know What’s Happening’ (2016)

“I big department!”

Let’s not fall into the trap of thinking of this year, 2021, as a uniquely awful year, politically. 2016 was pretty abominable, too.

Dig noozie Chris Cuomo–you remember news reporters: they used to report the news–trying to bury the news that squirted out of some documents leaked from the Hillary Clinton campaign. He actually implied that ordinary people, peasants like us, might get in trouble for reading these documents–which by then had been widely published.

Lib Noozie: It’s Against the Law for You Peasants to Know What’s Happening

Well, I guess when you’re a big noozie and your brother’s governor of New York, you get to thinking you’re a cut above the plebs and not bound by the same standards.

But Andrew Cuomo this year was forced to resign as governor (and he’s extremely lucky it was only for sexual harassment!) and now Bro Chris is in hot water… for sexual harassment. Must be something in the Cuomo gene pool.

Just for the record, once something has been published, even if it was originally obtained illegally, the public has a right to read it.

Even when the news media try to shut it down by telling scary lies.

Will It Hit the Fan Today in Arizona?

In just another hour and a half, Pacific Time, the Arizona Senate will open a hearing on a full forensic audit of the 2020 election in that state.

What will happen? Alleged leaks run the gamut of “Massive Fraud, Beyond a Reasonable Doubt!” to “Nope, nothin’ wrong here–pure as the driven snow.”

By far the easiest thing would be to whitewash the whole business and pretend it never happened. I will not be terribly surprised if that’s what they do. And then we can all sit on our hands for three more years and watch this doddering swigg in the White House do as much damage as he can, as fast as he can. Maybe the country will survive to the 2022 elections. But that’s only a maybe.

But what if they do find fraud, and prove it? Then what?

I think my wife came close to a bullseye when she said, “If they call fraud, you’re going to see more lawyering than you ever saw before.” Having stolen the country, Democrats are hardly likely to walk away from it. They’ll fight to keep it.

But a cascade of lawyering just might save the country! If Dems are kept busy running back and forth to court, and finding persons to blame for everything, they might not have time to do all the mischief they’ve planned.

And then there’s our Free & Independent Nooze Media. At the moment they’re downplaying Arizona. Count on them to do anything and everything that helps the Democrat Party. If the Dems go down the drain, the noozies might go with them. Maybe the threat of that can be used against them.

I have to wait till 4 p.m. Eastern Time for the hearing to begin. Again, I have no high hopes. I don’t dare have any.

But the Judge of all the earth will surely do right.

Editor’s Note: You may be wondering why I’ve decorated this post with that video of a very annoying squeaky toy. It is intended to preview the reaction of the nooze media if fraud is proved in Arizona. Just think of it as a CNN made of rubber.

‘That Ain’t Hillary’ (2017)

Honk if you believe that’s Hillary. [Deep and total silence ensues]

Imagine being so profoundly dishonest that you put a picture of someone else on your book jacket, saying she’s you and hoping someone, anyone, believes you.

That Ain’t Hillary

This was the author photo for her new book, You Dirty Deplorables, Wait’ll I Get You! Yes, she was trying to convince the world that her loss to Donald Trump was “The Russians.” Or something. And she puts some younger woman’s picture on her book jacket and makes believe it’s hers.

Well, all right–as long as we’re lying, here’s the picture that’s going to go on the cover of my next book.

If Hillary ever told the truth on purpose, she’d burst into flame.

‘Climbit Change Mob Goes Rabid’ (2017)

See the source image

Useless people, useful idiots

This is the lesson of the 21st century, its contribution to political theory:

Scare the daylights out of ’em, and you can do anything you want.

They thought the boogie-man of Climate Change was going to give them absolute power over us, but somehow they could never seal the deal. That drove them crazy.

Climbit Change Mob Goes Rabid

Well, before they could somehow impose the death penalty for “Climate Change Denialism,” along came King COVID and gave them everything they ever lusted for. In less than two years, freedom has almost been erased from the world. America is still relatively free, at least compared to others–but wit you well, Democrats do not intend for it to stay that way.

‘Don’t Take the Bait, Part Dos’ (What to Do About a Stolen Election)

(Thanks to Susan for the tip)

Brilliant political analysis by Doug Wilson! What happens next, if the Arizona ballot audit reveals that President Donald Trump actually won the state, only to “lose” it to election fraud?

Rage and wrath “won’t fix anything,” he warns–and will give the forces of coercion the excuse they need to clamp down on the American people. They would just love another “Jan. 6 Insurrection” that they could blow up into a reason for keeping their ill-gotten gains.

No, says Wilson, don’t do that. We should be patient… and “pour ourselves into the mid-term elections” in 2022, with the goal of taking back the House and the Senate.

If that’s achieved, the next step–presuming the Arizona audit reveals clear evidence of cheating–the new Congress can then impeach Biden and Harris for the high crime of stealing the election. It doesn’t matter what happened in any other states: it’s still a high crime. It doesn’t even matter if it worked our not! “Attempting to steal the presidency is right up there with actually doing so,” Wilson says.

With Republicans having captured Congress, Nancy Pelosi would no longer be Speaker of the House, no longer be third in line for the presidency. In fact, the Constitution allows the House to elect anyone it wants as speaker.

Even Donald Trump–who would then become president again after Biden and Harris are impeached.

Every step of this process, Wilson argues, is strictly Constitutional. No violence, no revolution. And it solves the problem, heals the wound.

And, I would pray, puts the Democrat Party out of business forever.

Mandate! Dems Must Be Shown To Be ‘The Happy Party’

Democratic Reps. Nancy Pelosi, Calif., James Clyburn, N.C., and Charles  Rangel, N.Y., left to right, laugh hysterically after Rangel joked about  the possible price of Depends during a news conference to warn

Yukkin’ it up from now on!

A brand-new mandate signed by “President” Jobydin and endorsed by Squeaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will forbid writers and other artists “from showing any bad or sad things happening to Democrats,” according to a presidential adviser whose name may not be mentioned.

“From now on,” he cackled, “the Democratic Party will be The Happy Party! The American people will learn to associate it with feelings of joy, bliss, and euphoria. No more negativity allowed! No more criticism! And anyhow it’s a mandate, not a law–so don’t even think about getting it debated, let alone repealed.”

Supreme Court Chief Justice Bartholomew Roberts said the high court will not hear any cases involving The Happy Party mandate. “I mean, they will kill us if we piss them off,” he explained.

The mandate will apply to political advertising, said White House counsel John Silver. “Republicans will not be allowed to say anything bad about the Democratic candidates,” Silver said. “Hee, hee! That’ll tie their hands!”
