Hmmmm. As I posted the morning after the “election”, stay frosty. It’s all just too weird and “off” to be trusted.
And, sure enough, what are the headlines of the past 36 hour news cycle?
Over at Ace of Spades, which I keep an eye on to gauge the state of the deluded right, this: “Good morning, kids. Not to put too fine a point on it but the Democrats and the institutional Left, aided and abetted by the GOP-wing of their uniparty, are attempting to overthrow the election and the will of the American people.”
“Republicans say Obamacare won’t be repealed for at least three years.”
(Of course it won’t, and of course the Republicans want it to remain. How dumb do you have to be to not see this coming?)
“Republicans to block Trump tax cuts”
(Once again, duh. Of course.)
CIA declares Russians “fixed” Trump election
(And my Kayfabe meter pegs…)
“Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell back CIA over Trump”
(And my Kayfabe meter breaks the spring…)
“Trump says he will not pursue criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton”
(Knock me over with a feather…)
And what is Trump doing? Appointing Goldman Sachs execs, Mitch McConnell’s WIFE, Mitt Romney’s ex-sister-in-law, meeting with Manbearpig (Algore), and now with Kanye West, a talentless “rapper” (but I repeat myself) who is both teetering on the precipice of mental retardation and deeply mentally ill. Because THAT’S a priority?
Folks, this all stinks to high heaven. As you know, I thought Trump wanted nothing to do with being president of the (former) United States, and others speculated before the “election” that if Trump did, in fact, win that he would find a way to get out of it. He’s in way, way over his head. He isn’t a terribly smart man, and his rhetoric is extraordinarily shallow and devoid of real substance and content. Don’t you think it is strange that Trump has not put out any substantive position papers or educational materials on the state of the economy, healthcare delivery system, banking system, or really anything? Remember Ross Perot back in ’92? I was 15 years old during that campaign, and I watched every one of his instructional “infomercials” with the utmost attention. (**Yes, I fully acknowledge that Perot handed the 92 election to the Clintons, probably due to some sort of grudge against Bush 41 – such a betrayal.) In fact, I would say, looking back, that Perot’s attempt to simply educate people as to the problems in the economy inspired me to make the videos that I ended up making 20 years later. I would speculate that this motivation is shared by people like Karl Denninger, who has spent nearly a decade desperately trying to make people understand the catastrophic nature of the healthcare monopoly and price-fixing regime, which is the single biggest financial threat to this nation – bigger even than the baking and derivatives mess. Now ask yourself, given Trump’s bully pulpit and ability to self-finance, why hasn’t Trump done anything similar? Why aren’t there Donald Trump videos EXPLAINING the key dynamics of the massive problems, and explaining his plans for remedying these things? I suspect it is because Trump has little-to-no understanding of these problems himself, or if he does, doesn’t particularly care. I suspect that if you have read Karl Deninger’s book “Leverage“, and watched my video on Economics – just those two things – you probably have a vastly superior understanding of what the hell is going on than Trump ever will.
The Republicans are clearly telling him to leave, and I can’t shake the feeling that Trump himself wants out. I dunno. I was wrong about the “election” itself – I thought the media was reporting the polls drawing close in order to give a Clinton “win” the odor of legitimacy in the eyes of the public. (Aw shucks, it was close, but she squeaked it out…) We know that the puppet masters behind Obama have always despised the Clintons, and she does seem to be out of the way now.
Finally, I watched a video linked over at AmericanDigest.org of Victor Davis Hanson, who one can’t help but like, and he made several good points, but his entire premise is SO DELUSIONAL. He keeps talking about “the Republicans” having the White House, the Congress, the Governors mansions in so many states, the state legislatures, etc., and how this all portends such wonderful things, and how we are going to be able to undo so much damage and get so many things done now. And I just shake my head. What planet is VDH, whom I really do admire, living on? Has he not been around for the past decade and watched the “Republicans” implement the Obama regime’s strategy without the slightest resistance? Does VDH honestly think that after what we saw during the “election” cycle that the “Republicans” would actually cooperate with Trump’s stated agenda (making the wild assumption in the first place that Trump himself would even pursue his own stated agenda)? I mean, COME ON.
My point is, I just have a very, very bad feeling about what is going to transpire between now and January 20th, and I would urge one and all to think long and hard about whom exactly you are casting your lot with. It’s a horrible feeling to look out at the battle space and see no one you can trust. I know. Satan really has set a brilliant chessboard. But, we let him do it. Not only did we make bad moves, we sat passive and paralyzed and forfeited our moves for years.
Bottom line: I think what we are seeing now is the coming to fruition of my warning since ARSH 2008 that these people, once they have power, will never, ever just walk away.
I hope I’m wrong (again).
