Terrible Tuesday if you are a Special Snowflake. Your Snowflake Queen just lost, for the third time! Faithless electors took seven votes from her, two from Trump, so the final tally will give Hillaroon 225, Trump 304. Oh, the HUMANITY!
First day in three that I have been been able to sit at the Blogstation Alpha. The present sciatic hip attack was especially hurtful. There may be some spinal surgery in my future.
The world marches on, though. As I write, the Special Snowflakes, #NotMyPresident tribe, are going over the cliff as is usual for those lemmings. In a few more hours, the Electors will have had their say and will confirm the election of Mr. M.A.G.A. Trump as President.
The muzzoids have made another "statement", assassinating the Russian Ambassador in Ankara as he made a cultural visit to a photography exhibit there. I hear one report that the assassin, who confirmed his muzzoid status by several "Aloha Snackbars" and a short rant before the cops mowed him down, might have been a cop himself. If so, it would seem that Turkish President-for-life Recip Ergodan's muzzification is complete. My take on it: I'll wager that when Obummer got this news, he did fist-pumps. I will also wager that Mr. Trump, upon taking office in a month, will start a review of our membership in NATO, under whose umbrella an Islamist Turkey shelters these days.
More news of joy: The President of the International Monetary Fund, Mme Christine Lagarde, was just found guilty of corruption (light version called "negligence") by a Froggish court. Yes, I will, in fact, quote from Russian sources instead of the New Yawk Slimes. The IMF, of course, it the financial arm of the New World Order, a commie-enabling group you have probably heard of...
There is probably more joyous news coming down the pike. As I read it, I will post it.
From the stupidly-supersized crowd of 16 candidates, through the ridiculously-arranged debates which meant NOTHING, one candidate had the pizzaz to catch the eye of the GOP primary voters. Note that the GOP Primaries were NOT rigged to push one candidate as the Democratic Party Primaries were1. The GOP choices all broke down to either RINOs favored by the GOP Establishment, or not. The Not candidates were Cruz and Trump. Cruz IS part of the Establishment, being a United States Senator, but he tried to present himself as if he was the leader of a "Conservative Party". Of course, there isn't such a party now, nor is there likely to ever be one2. With Congress' miniscule 8-percent "favorable" rating3, and the GOP's rating just slightly better among it's own voters, the inevitable happened: the Establishment-backed candidates fell behind and were mostly gone in the first three months of the campaign. By April, the lone Establishment candidate, Gov. Kasich of OH. was teetering, running less than 10 percent in the last few primaries. The establishment kept him alive financially, and so in CA, the last big Primary, it boiled down to Cruz, "THE" Conservative (if you believe that bulltwaddle, I didn't), Kasich, Mister Establishment, falling somewhere between a Conservative and a RINO (I could never decide on the weak evidence presented for either case), and Trump, the "Maverick" candidate, who made a point to dump on the Establishment every chance he got, rightfully IMHO, because he had the polling stats to back it up.
Trump, The Dumper (of all things Establishment) took a BRILLIANT position as to self-projection. He took himself, already well-known via his TV personna, to the lowest level, knowing that the Establishment ALWAYS puts on the most "hoity-toity" airs that are possible. This set up CONTRAST4 with the Establishment candidates. It also lured them into chasing his language and style, instead of attacking his message, which would have shown him to be elusive and transitory on some issues. He used name-calling, a rubric of false-logic. His main challenger, Ted Cruz, was supposedly a "Great Debater", but for some reason, he got sucked down to Trump's level and never successfully pointed out the logical faults in Trump's speeches as they came and went. Trump more or less successfully marginalized Ted Cruz. Cruz himself was easier to marginalize than his supporters, who eventually tapped into Establishment money after they showed solidarity. Cruz, a loner in the Senate with few accomplishments of note, was propped up by the Establishment, who had never trusted him, from the end of the Primaries to the Convention. At the Convention, the Establishment tried unsuccessfully to mount a floor-fight by illegal rules-change which would have "relieved" pledged delegates of their pledges. Oregon's delegation, to their everlasting guilt, fully intended to violate State and possibly Federal law and lead this final act of #NeverTrump shame.
Hillary Rodham Clinton
HRC has been campaigning since the start of Obama's second term as President. Previously referred to as "The Smartest Woman in the Country", she has attempted for the past three and a half years to position herself as the INEVITABLE HILLARY. In other words, "Mr. & Mrs. America, get over it, I am your next President." Well, inevitability works sometimes. It has put some strange bedfellows in the White House before. The problem is, as revealed in the "Guccifer Dump V.2.0"1, HRC never really intended to rely on a purely political campaign, not unusual for her because she has put her finger on the scale in everything she has ever done. She used evasive talking points throughout the lead-up to her campaign against challengers Kevin McCarthy, former MD Governor, and Senator Bernie Sanders, (Socialist), VT. McCarthy, apparently a stalking horse, was dismissed by the liberal press before he got started. That same HRC-bought-and-paid-for media tried also to marginalize Sanders, but had zero success at that. Sanders soon developed a large following among the liberal youth of America, who, having been fed a steady diet of Socialism for decades in their colleges, found their "Marx-in-Shining-Armor"6 in the person of Sanders. It seemed to this pundit that 80-90% of the Democratic Party energy in the hustings went to Bernie. Interestingly, Bernie's message was almost pure Socialism, and fiscally irresponsible socialism at that. His kid-squad failed to grasp the fact that if his program was adopted, it would destroy what was left of the US economy. So much for those expensive college educations, eh? The damage was done though, because the "Bernie-Bots" as this "Children's Crusade" became known as, managed to remain cohesive, likely due to their Marxist indoctrination in college. Sanders continued to run up significant primary wins right to the end of the primary season, but because of the (D)-Party system of "super-delegates", pre-pledged to HRC, Sanders never had a chance5. The final result WAS as "inevitable" as the Clinton War Room could make it. HRC is the official candidate for President, and WILL stand for election, despite the mountain of Probable Cause of almost-uncountable election felonies she could be indicted on. Her corruption is totally protected by the present corrupt Administration of Barack Hussein Obama, the subject of the next Section of this opus.
I might have waited until the coronation of Queen Hillary was over and done with, but since it is only a formality for the DNC, that would be wasted time. Without further ado, here is my take on the race for President.
Analyze the ideals and history of the parties.
Analyze the candidates.
Analyze the present Administration and it's effect on the election.
Tie it all up, exposing the logical gaps.
History of the Parties.
Republican Party: the Grand Old Party's ideal has always been Business First, prosperity follows, nothing bad happens during prosperous times1. This is an ideal which makes sense to most everyone who isn't what we call now a "social justice warrior", a fad amongst the youth mostly, which says if you aren't trying to upset the apple-cart, you ain't shit. SJWs aren't in the GOP, they are invariably found somewhere to the left of Karl Marx. The first and greatest (IMHO) Republican President of the post-WW2 era was GEN. Eisenhower, who oversaw the rebuilding of a robust post-war economy, the rise of major new technologies and his best work, improvements in continental infrastructure (the Interstate Highway system). Pause for the ugly Vietnam War period. Under the GOP, the USA recovered from the post-Vietnam recession and "malaise" of Jimmah Cahtuh by electing Ronald Reagan, who did all the usual GOP things - rebuilt the excessively-reduced military, let business have free rein, defeated the USSR in the Cold War. The next GOP Presidents were the Bushes, who showed us how BAD the GOP can get without a charismatic leader. Bush41 said he would cut taxes, he increased them. He engaged an Islamist dictator in war, defeated him in 100 hours, then let him remain a dictator. Bush43, the Texan who couldn't talk straight, had a little business experience, mostly as a MLB franchise owner (which doesn't count, professional sports are an engineered market). He ran up the most debt of any GOP prexy, let down his daddy's healthy watchfulness of the Jihadis, was attacked on 9-11-01 and responded poorly with our military assets. He only had one goal: kill Saddam Hussein, whom his daddy had left alive, because Saddam had "put out a contract" on his daddy's head. Bush43's war was very unpopular, and essentially gave rise to the SJW movement that plagues the USA today. Comes now The Donald, riding his particular wave of entrepreneurial talent. He has an excellent chance of interrupting the decline of the USA, but he faces huge opposition, see below.
Democratic Party: (Note that I don't use the word "Democrat". That would be incorrect) The Democratic Party is all Social Change, all the time. Take from the Rich, give to the Poor (raking off a healthy vig, of course), but most of the "Poor" are folks who have had the work ethic beaten out of them, or who have been to college in the past 20 years where they learned that work is NOT their primary goal in life, that would be Social Justice. The "Justice" in Social Justice means what the Democratic Party says it means, it is not derived from History, Logic or study of the workings of governance. Under the Democratic Party, post WW2, we have the last Democratic Party conservative, Harry Truman, most noted for ending WW2 with nuclear warfare vs. Japan. JFK was a milder form of Truman, but was assassinated in office. That gave us LBJ, unfit for office on Day One of his Administration, but who recognized that the Democratic Party's way out of major problems is to start a war, which he did, then set the US military up to lose it, also another D classic maneuver in the past fifty years. Then J Carter, who inherited the Nixon-Ford economics disaster and made it worse ("malaise") then Bill Clinton, who brought Mafia-style governance to the White House (see his list of dead bodies). Clinton inherited the Dot-Com Bubble, allowing him to claim the only National Surplus in the past umpteen years (then the bubble burst). Via smoke, mirrors and REALLY strong grips backstage, Bill, like a Deus Ex Machina, still sails along as an "economic expert" for some illogical reason. The Obama Collapse came next, but it will be dealt with in Section #3. Now Hillary waits in the wings for her chance to (save the country) (make herself rich) (screw everything up) (destroy the Constitution)/ Mark all which apply.
The death of SCOTUS Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, the truest Constitutional Conservative on the Supreme Court, brings this Nation to a bright line, to a decision point where the entire future of these United States hangs in the balance.
There are only two possibilities going forward from here: A liberal Justice is nominated and confirmed, ending forever any possibility that the Constitution will ever again be interpreted as our Founders wrote it, OR, a moderate or conservative justice will be appointed and confirmed, giving our Nation the guidance it is supposed to have, that of a Constitution carefully written to guide the actions of free people in an environment of Liberty.
Details matter. It is hard to imagine President Obama nominating anyone but a jurist who REFUSES to believe that the original concepts of Liberty must be maintained. Obama will nominate someone who believes in the false concept that the Constitution is a "Living Document", completely adjustable in interpretation to suit the political whims of the political Left.
A little history. You may not recall, because Civics, as presently taught, does not EVER portray President Franklin Roosevelt as attempting to destroy the Constitution, but he did, in fact, try exactly that, but the simple expedient of increasing the size of the Supreme Court, giving him the opportunity to change it from a conservative Court to a Court which would knuckle under to his Statist plans, most of which either were or bordered on socialism. This episode was known as "FDR's attempt to pack the Court", and I first learned about it at my mother's knee when I was about first-grade age. She was prescient on this issue, and knew that I was unlikely to ever learn this bitter lesson in public school, so she home-schooled me on it herself. Now, the idea of "packing the Court" has not come up just yet, and may not, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the idea come up as a faux-compromise: the Left allows the appointment of a moderate or conservative Justice, but at a time certain in the future, the size of the Court will be increased.
All of us who are politically to the right of Karl Marx need to raise our voices, NOW, and demand that no liberal candidate achieves confirmation. This will REQUIRE that we coalesce around a candidate for President who can and will LEAD this Nation, not allowing it to be led by a cabal of back-room players who are bought and sold on a daily basis, as is now the case in BOTH political parties. Our new leader MUST acknowledge that our Constitution is, as the late Justice Scalia said many times, based on it's exceptionally clear language, language which CANNOT be interpreted in any way except by it's actual words and how those words were used when our founding document was actually written.
The "who is a conservative" games presently being played out in the GOP field have, by need, just ended. The GOP Presidential race now becomes one of "who is the best American".
The feeling is, that the major attack on it which will be the hallmark of Obama's failed presidency is but weeks away, maybe days away.
Yesterday, Obama made a speech about terrorism and internal security. I listened. As the lies started to flow, I was lulled momentarily by the fact that it was all, well, so BOILERPLATE. We will kill ISIS....yada-yada. Home-grown terrorists are harder to catch and get ahead of....yada-yada. I almost zoned the prez totally out as I was doing scut work in the kitchen at the time.
Then the alarm bells started going off. the "Ruh-Roh Alarm" sounded loudly. I re-focused. I followed Fox' handy talking points crawl at the bottom of the screen. The Obama-rama Show wrapped up, and the alarms were still going off.
Why? What alarms? Glad you asked!
OBAMA NEVER MENTIONED GUNS IN THAT SPEECH, NOT ONCE.
He not only didn't mention it, but his two favorite follow-ons were missing: no words on "it's Congress' fault", no "It's the NRA's fault", no "gun-show loophole's" fault. Especially, no "I have a pen and a phone" reference to Executive Action.
Here's a little thing from my military days: when you are at war, a shooting war, and you stumble right onto the enemy and THEY DON'T SHOOT AT YOU, that is worth some brain work to find out why. In infantry warfare, when this happens with reconnaisance patrols, the usual reason is that the enemy has something major going on nearby they don't want you to discover (a hidden HQ, for example), so they let you on through without resistance, hoping that the major-something doesn't get discovered and quickly attacked by a larger force than you represent.
I had this vibe about Obama's speech yesterday. Just now, I got up at 0645, went downstairs to get a clean coffee cup, and while I was getting it, Fox News was expounding on the thoughts I have just expressed, above. Apparently, they did some digging (or just read some O-flunky's lips), and Fox has concluded, as I did yesterday, that some Gun Control Executive Action is forthcoming, fairly immediately.
Well, if Bloomie was in on it, it will bring at least a National Capacity Limit for magazines (resurrect Clinton's, most likely), likely some sort of "Assault Weapons Ban" (again, resurrect Clinton's, but tighten it up so that chosen manufacturers can't grease palms like Bill Ruger did with his Ranch Rifle and buy their way out of it). I'm guessing that there won't be confiscation in it, for now. Obama is likely content to leave that up to Hillary, who has said that she would go down that road. If Hillary doesn't make it to POTUS, there won't be Federal confiscations, except maybe for a 50-cal ban and grab. 50BMG weapons are at risk because they are one RCH (look it up, it's military slang) away from being designated as Destructive Devices now, and that could be done easily by edict.
So, it's time to ask: if POTUS tries to kill the 2A by edict (Clinton did it with Congress, you will recall), what will the GOPe Congress do?
Absolutely Nothing. Need proof: Look at the super-pork bill they just passed. These are NOT the Conservative droids you are looking for...
What will Yours Truly do? Absolutely Nothing. Yep, I am not going to go to war over anything less than active confiscations, which I WILL use my skills against. Why am I promising nothing? You haven't read this blog for long, have you, my friends? If you had, you will note that I advised the purchase of all firearms, magazines and ammo that might be banned from sale, way back in '08, when it began to look like Obama was going to get the (D) nomination. If you DIDN'T follow this blog, and DIDN'T accumulate your weapons since then, you have an immediate task to do so, if you want any.
The events unfolding in San Bernardino show us a different threat. Not an unknown threat, just a different one.
We have been used to seeing various formats of homicidal/suicidal Jihad here: 9-11, the various Jihadi gun attacks since then, etc. All these attacks had one common characteristic: the Muslims involved were all determined to kill members of the Western Civilization, but pretty much stuck to methods which left their shock troops dead with the event. One-way attacks. Don't "pass go", Get your 72 raisins immediately.
With San Berdoo, we have just seen an attack in which the Jihadis had trained and prepared to strike with force and effect, but moved on quickly to, presumably, strike again later. Far from the normal homicide/suicide attack, this is more like revolutionary attack. This resembles what we used to refer to as a "partisan" attack. Similar to the tactics of the French or Yugoslavian partisans who attacked the Nazis during WW2. What we just saw could have been very successful for the Jihadis, and the only reason it wasn't, was better training and discipline/communication on the part of the police authorities.
My purpose here is not to figure out how to defeat this different flavor of Jihad, but to prepare the average citizen to survive it. Methods of defeat for the Muslim Jihad will have to wait for a National Command Authority determined to defeat Islamic Jihad itself, and we don't have such leadership now, we have the opposite. We have political and command leadership determined to NOT face down islamic Jihad instead of the other way around. The effect for John Q. Citizen is that he will probably have to face the shock troops of Jihad alone, possibly with the help of local police.
A personal note: I am trained in various aspects of public safety, and as events unfolded and were reported yesterday in San Berdnardino, I evaluated the events as if they were the result of criminal gang activity, since, to me, the events more resembled the activity of, say, Mexican drug cartels or the criminal gang MS-13 (both very active in San Bernardino), and both are orgs not unwilling to create mass murder to get their point across. I was wrong in that analysis, mostly because I applied the usual standard of homicide/suicide Jihad, then rejected it, and this event did not fit that model.
So, how to prepare?
Arm up. The protected citizen will be armed at all times, with handgun(s) within hands' reach at home and away, and a long gun close by as well. You will have to figure out how to conform to "safe storage" laws to accomplish this in your home and in your car (presumably, your "away" long gun stays in the car). At home, I have quick-reaction pistol safes (plural), and the long gun goes back in the big safe when kids are present, so I comply. In the car, I carry on my person as I am permitted to do, and my long gun is a Kel-tec folding rifle with internal lock, carried in a locking gun case, kept in the locked trunk of the vehicle.That complies with local law as well (it would NOT comply in CA or several Eastern states though).
Train up. At this point, if you have not already done so, join a local gun club or commercial firearms practice facility. Your preference should be one which has practice facilities for handgun (any caliber), rifle (any caliber) and shotgun. With the exceptions of no 50BMG and no full-auto, my club fits these requirements. You will need to allot sufficient funds for ammo, and/or begin to reload your chosen calibers. You will need to allot sufficient time to practice, probably a minimum of once per month in the training phase, and four times per year with all defense firearms as a maintenance-of-training effort.
Smarten up. Apply some common sense as to your selection of events to attend, particularly if you will be responsible for others' safety. Large outdoor events are Jihad targets of opportunity, as are crowded shopping malls. Organized athletic events in arenas and stadia are probably safer to some degree, but the Jihadis wouold love to target one for the kill ratio that they could achieve. Consider applying a sliding scale of risk to your life and it's chosen events. Yeah, that's a bummer, but we are at war, dude! You are probably safest at home, relatively safe out and about in your vehicle, safe enough doing shopping that is NOT done in large, crowded venues at peak predictable times. You are less safe in any public crowd, on mass transportation, at any outdoor event which has been heavily advertised as to attendance prospects. The training and/or dedication of your local policing authority is a factor in your relative safety also. Evaluate it.
Vote up. National elections are close at hand. Regardless of your political affiliation, you need to vote for your own safety. Safety is personal, and politicians and political parties which refuse to recognize your personal safety as their Job #1 should NOT get your vote. This is not about flavors of morality, this is about survival. See my note on National Command Authority, above.
Again, we are at war. The war has been brought to these shores by Islam, and it's not going to get "wished away", even though this seems to be the primary "combat strategy" of the current political Administration. YOU are responsible for your OWN safety, so make safety happen for you, NOW!
A final word. Religion. Your personal religious creed should give you the mental strength to survive the mental rigors of mortal combat. It is NOT required for that purpose, but if you hold to a creed, it will pay you to increase your attention to it in these anxious times. Your creed is your business under our Constitution. Your survival is a natural AND Constitutional Right under our system. You MUST consider anyone who attacks you for your creed or attacks your Right to survival as your enemy. Islam is attacking/denying both.
Good evening, Chair Piluso and members of the School Board. I am George Schneider, age 72, a resident of City of Gresham. I am a Veteran, having retired from the Air National Guard with 22 years of service, in the rank of Major, and having flown in air combat during the Vietnam War. I am also a retired Multnomah County Deputy Sheriff, and I served this community for 25 years. I have raised 4 children with the assistance of this school system. All of them sit on the positive side of their communities' ledgers of citizenship. I am going to say a few words about such Citizenship.
Today's children, tomorrows citizens and leaders, can only sit on the positive side of THEIR communities' ledgers if their parents and their schools do their best to inculcate them with the best qualities of citizens. The recent case of the wrong-headed administrative action taken against the Moore child tramples one of these best qualities, and it supported no others. With almost a month to reflect on this disaster and huge adverse press, I am sure that the Board realizes this, but yet, I have seen no evidence presented of policy reform that would insure that this sort of error is not repeated. If the Board is considering permanent policy changes to modify the insane “zero-tolerance of violent images” policy, you need to put them out in front of the public. I sense that the Board lacks proper input to formulate such policy, so I offer to head up or serve on a committee of citizens to offer a replacement policy. I have no secrets: my suggestions would be largely a return to the status quo ante on clothing images, which served well before this Board got swept up in the “zero-tolerance” mania, really nothing more than a herd-behavior stampede, with the First Amendment being the first trampling casualty.
The present policy, if applied fairly, would change most textbooks, require school resource officers to dress the same as teachers and prohibit field trips to places such as the State Capitol, where statuary of armed citizens and soldiers are presented. Everyone in this room can see how absurd this zero-tolerance policy really is, and yet there is no proposal to change it. We, the citizens, are waiting for that change, and I suggest that we will wait no longer than another year. This issue WILL affect the voting on next year's ballot. That is a promise.
Thank you for your attention.
If you are local to the Portland area, and you have nothing other than citizenship as your duty for tonight, the meeting starts at 7 pm (1900 for Veterans). I will be the "Q-Tip" in the tweed jacket...
School Board AAR: The Superintendent of the School District opened the meeting with a rambly, wonkish speech trying to support the "zero tolerance for violent images" policy. I took notes. An hour and a half later, when it was my turn to speak, I set aside my prepared remarks and hammered the Supt: 1. Supt. Schlacter made no less than 3 attempts to link the horror of school shootings to this issue of the Battlefield Cross. I called him out on it. Illogical propaganda. Boogeyman trick. 2. I requested that the Supt. confer with his attorneys on the subject of "in loco parentis", the legal construct which gives the school the authority of parents. I reminded him that in a case of rules violations, no "deal" can be made with a student, because the student lacks AGENCY to act for the parents. 3. I suggested that Zero Tolerance flies in the face of the school's renewed mission to instill critical thinking skills in students, the better to facilitate STEM education. 4. I suggested that while the school must have authority over students, it should not discard the idea of freedom of speech entirely, see Item #3. 5. I noted that the burden of proof is on the School District to demonstrate that images of the Battlefield Cross are an actual THREAT, and that burden may not be shifted to the student to prove they are NOT a threat.
1. The PopeScams. His Hollowness, Pope Francis, comes to the US of A to spread Catholicism Socialism. He says nothing against our enemy, radical Islam (the same as ordinary Islam). He is all re-distribution of income, all the time. He is also all greenscamPopeScam all the time.
2. The GOPe political season. The news here is that Fox News has turned unabashedly RINO. They are all Dump Trump, all the time. Their only salvation is that they don't seem to be pushing any RINO very hard, just railing against the three non-insiders, Trump, Carson and Fiorina. The lack of Fox enthusiasm for RINOs seems to be more about waiting for a clear front-running RINO to emerge. What Fox is too stupid to realize is that Trump IS the RINO they are looking for. They would be all for Trump if he would just agree to play with the RNC's ball and not keep tossing that one over the fence.
2. The Eagles suck. I thought that decent talent plus a superb coach would be the magic formula for success, but I may have missed that train, boat, whatever...
3. The Seahawks suck. The vaunted Defense is no more. The offense doesn't dazzle anyone. No Championship for them.
4. I played soccer before it was popular, in the Fifties. I know the game, and I know that the MLS Portland Timbers suck.
Let's find something to cheer about.
1. My wife's old High School, Roosevelt, had an alumni dinner event, and we were graciously hosted by a local sportsman of note. The alumni have a Pep Band, and it was GOOD, albeit a bit much for the confines of the banquet room we were in. This fine evening was capped off with your blogger winning a raffled $50 gift cert to a fine local restaurant!
Also at this event, I was advised of a fine program the school and alums are putting on to steer some citizenship towards the students: it's called "Youth and the Law", and it gives the kids the lowdown on what's legal activity and what isn't. Yes, the parents ought to be teaching their kids this, but sadly, in many cases at RHS, the parents never learned those lessons either.
2. Fall is here! Aside from the leaf messes, it's my favorite season. It was a delicious 34 degrees at 0700 when I went out to get my Sunday blatt. Hottest Summer on record, you are HISTORY!
Enough growling. Now that my throat is clear enough to cheer, I will watch the Titans kick some Colt butt, and sip a Hot Honey, Lemon and Bourbon to ward off whatever attacked me last night.
For me, Donald Trump has been the "Anti-PeeCee", and that is his sole value as a candidate. Quite frankly, I care not if he ever gets to the GOPe primary, it's what he is accomplishing NOW that will make a difference. He is showing, without a doubt, that the GOPe base is fed up to here with the party acting like a bunch of Democrats, and being indistinguishable from them. Of late though, he has slipped a bit in the polls, most likely due to a decent performance by Carly Fiorina in the dee-bate last week. Carson is also up, and between Carson and Fiorina, both of them are trashing PeeCee mightily.
Political Correctness is nothing but thought control, and through thought control, speech control and behavior control. PeeCee depends for it's very existence as a concept on the idea that none of it's core precepts is ever challenged. Concepts such as the perceived "right" to take offence at anything and have that perceived offence translated into political action (or riot, which then must be overlooked regardless of the crimes involved), or political lying of the most blatant order (see the Climate Change death cult), none of which is ever challenge-able, you get the idea.
Our political system works if, and ONLY if, people are free to speak their minds, and when a political movement arises that runs against the very idea of free speech, that MOVEMENT MUST DIE!
Trump, Fiorina and Carson are killing PeeCee, bit by bit. Now, if we could only get the rest of the candy-dates to take up these cudgels, the GOPes might be able to present a real difference to the Left in next year's Election.
