    "The GOP is doomed"

    There is no demo for Romney-Ryan magical market pixie dust? There is no female audience for man talk about the sanctity of life? Maybe conservative white men can gather in their clubhouses across the country and formulate a political philosophy that will appeal to people other than conservative white men. Until then they are adrift. The movement around Trump sadly degenerated into a strongman cult. There won't be any opposition to open borders, Zio-wars, and technocratic totalitarianism until the white men cook up something viable in their clubhouses.

    Government will always be he agent of the rich and the powerful, plus its own employees. One problem is people have become convinced that the government is the solution to their problems if they just vote and campaign for the right people.

    The people who created America knew better, they said we are not governed by angels. They limited the powers of government and turned to private voluntary cooperation for as much as possible. Institutions such as the church, the boy scouts, joint stock corporations, private colleges, private owned doctors offices.

    As late as the early 20th century you can see vestiges of it, when abuses in the stock market became evident the solution was Self Regulatory Organizations. The exchanges were to regulate the market. Today everyone believes if we turn anything over to the government it will be run better and fairer. Nationalized health care, cities all take over mass transit, cities nearly take over taxis (by licensing requirements). Govt runs basically all financial institutions and big business because it is the largest single customer of most.

    Steve apparently isn't allowed to actually talk about election fraud or they will cancel his Twitter. But . . .

    Georgia's corrupt Secretary of State is stonewalling and refusing to allow inspection of ballots, signatures, or machine logs. Likewise, he won't release the information that supposedly "debunks" the video of Ruby Freeman running hidden ballots multiple times after they sent poll watchers away with a lie about the "water main" burst.

    Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania data scientists have confirmed that Trump's machine counted/computer-reported vote totals kept going backwards in certain counties. The scariest thing is we are repeatedly told this was the "fairest election ever." Yikes!

  8. GOP wins both, electorate is older. There’s scant evidence white voters there are moving left. Even in the Atlanta suburbs Biden only got 35% of whites. It’s sad though that due to the black influx, in order for the GOP to win statewide races they have to keep Democrats under 28% with whites. Doable but it gets harder to do each cycle as the threshold goes lower each year due to demographic changes.

  9. The trouble with political elections in all countries is that the system only works when there are fairly large majorities, because as soon as an election is close both sides will start accusing the other of cheating and elections will come down to margins that are decided by things like members of the military who were killed in action between casting their vote and polling day, and other similar technicalities.

    It really would be better for the Democrats to win both these seats this time so that they have control of both wings of Congress and can get some legislation enacted.

    And then in four years time the nation can take a look at what has occurred and whether it has made life in the US better or worse, and then decide whether it wants to continue on similar lines, or whether the opposition party has a better plan for the future.

    That all presupposes that we have politics as it existed sixty years ago. If the Democrats win control of the entire government, they will begin implementing policies that all but guarantee that this country becomes a one-party state. Many of those policies will be irreversible. Almost all federal government policies are, in effect, irreversible. That's why the best thing to do is - almost always - to not pass any legislation.

    Of course, many argue that we effectively already have a one-party state already - the uni-party. And they are largely right. Maybe this will finally be the election when conservatives realize the the Republicans are not their friends. But I doubt it.

    Three decades of disastrous polices by this country's current establishment have created social, economic, political, and foreign policy disasters that previously were unimaginable. The Rona Panic was just a spark that hastened the inevitable collapse. Things will be getting much worse. Whoever is running things in the coming four years will take the blame.

    OTOH, the establishment has recently demonstrated a willingness to use worsening conditions as a historically unprecedented opportunity to reduce civil liberties and rights and effectively cancel honest elections. If the wrong people are in control then the next four years might very well see the final demise of constitutional democracy in the USA.

    "It really would be better for the Democrats to win both these seats this time so that they have control of both wings of Congress and can get some legislation enacted."

    Except that the Democrat plan is to legalize every one of the 20,000,000 or so people currently in the US illegally, and then let in as many as possible, settling them in Republican states to turn them blue.

    "And then in four years time the nation can take a look at what has occurred and whether it has made life in the US better or worse, and then decide whether it wants to continue on similar lines, or whether the opposition party has a better plan for the future."

    Donald Trump is the last populist president who actually tried to govern according to the Constitution and according to the basic principles on which the country was founded. In four years time, the demographic change to the country will be too great and irreversible. The Republican majority in state legislatures will also disappear, washed away by tens of millions of non-English speakers who can vote themselves unlimited free stuff.

    We will know by this summer if this is to be our fate.

    And then when they don't pass any of the policies progressives want, like universal healthcare, etc., they will have to make excuses or divert attention away from that on to other, symbolic or unimportant issues ("Finklethink"), to keep their base on the reservation, much like happens in reverse on the GOP side when Republican controlled Congress does nothing on issues Republican voters actually care about.

    If the Dems gain control the Senate we aren't going to turn into a one party Venezuela overnight and we certainly aren't going to go "socialist".

    Plenty of differences.

    -Taxes
    -Regulations
    -Labor issues
    -Environmental rules
    -Welfare programs
    -Judges
    -Abortion

    However, with regard to the issues that YOU care about, you have to remember one important thing.

    American politics runs on money. In America, the big money comes from Jewish donors. While these Jewish donors may disagree to some extent on certain issues (high vs lower taxes, expand vs cut Medicaid, right to organize labor vs right to work), they agree on a lot of important things too.

    In addition to all this, there's also Epstein-style sexual blackmail, which gives certain powerful people a lot of leverage over our politicians, media talking heads, and senior intel/military officers.

    That's why you never get what you want.

    To be fair, that's also why the Democrats often don't get what they want. For example, it's politically impossible to cut defense spending and end our foreign wars. It's equally impossible to send our leaders (like George W. Bush and Cheney) to international war crimes tribunals.

    It's interesting that Hollywood (which is usually very liberal) made a movie called "American Sniper." A movie that glorified a White Texan man ("Chris Kyle") who went to Iraq and murdered 255 Muslims.... Imagine that. A Hollywood movie that celebrated a White Texan Republican murdering tons of dark-skinned Muslims in cold blood. A movie that portrays White male soldiers as saintly, while also portraying Muslims as animal-like monstrous creatures. That sounds like something that the KKK or Neo-Nazis would produce, not something that Hollywood liberals would put on screen.

    Until you remember (((who))) runs Hollywood. Then it makes a lot of sense.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99k3u9ay1gs&t=12s

    TLDR:

    Jewish money runs American politics. As long as that continues to be true, both YOU (and a lot of the far left) will continue to be disappointed by much of what you see in Washington DC. There are some issues on which you'll get your way (like tax cuts or overtime labor pay regulations), but there are many important issues that Jewish donors (and Epstein-style sexual blackmailers) will not compromise on. This is is how it works in the USA.

    Jews also run Hollywood. So expect more movies that glorify Jewish Neocon-instigated wars in the Middle East. Movies that glorify saintly White men murdering monstrous Muslims. If you're a liberal, you might be aghast at this type of cartoonish caricature and blatant dishonesty. However, rest assured, your concerns will be ignored.

    That we have obnoxious pricks like this who take their tribe's persecution complex on into my nation and work to balkanize and destroy what my people built ... big 'effing problem.

    Makes sense that Ossoff is descended from ashkenazi immigrants. But what about that other influential Georgia pol, Stacey Abrams? Guessing that she's sephardic, as she's rather dark complected.

    If Ossoff does lose (one can hope), he can definitely get a gig at SPLC. He can copy and paste that statement into one of their fundraising mass mailings.

    The amazing thing is that most white conservatives, especially in the South, are fanatical zionists who have no problem supporting a racial supremacist ethno-state in Israel while simultaneously loudly rejecting any form of white ethnocentrism.

    Trump caused immense damage by reinforcing zionism and philo-semitism among white conservatives and even giving those things a phony association with anti-establishment politics.

Surprise they didn't opt for Loeffler and the CIA dude, but the Perdues are good ole boys to the establishment.

  18. I remember the year I moved back to JawJuh in 2004, riding up the interstate I kept seeing signs with the “new” Georgia Flag that read, “Thanks Sonny.” Apparently Sonny ran on the platform that Georgia could choose their own flag and that it appears most Georgians were fine with the Confederate Flag remaining as part of the Georgia State Flag. Where is traitor trash Sonny now? Oh, he works in the Trump administration doesn’t he? Seems like these guys never leave and nothing really embarrasses them. Speaking of Georgia and lying, politician scum, I see Newt Gingrich never left the building either. Wonder if Sonny is related to David Perdue?

    Typical republiWONT. Promises the people one thing and NEVER delivers even on something as easy as keeping your state flag the same. Republicans are mere sparring partners for the Democrats to beat up on. They, they being the republicans, NEVER win anything and they only PRETEND to fight for their constituents before the election, afterwards they sell you out. Look no further than the current Governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, who has been in seclusion since all the voter fraud was discovered in his state and particularly in the city of Atlanta. Brian Kemp was going to deport the illegal invaders back in his pickup truck if you elected him Governor, but he can’t do that on his knees kissing the Black mayor of Atlanta’s ass or that huge monstrosity known as Stacey Abrams’ hippopotamus ass.

My guess is that if the Republicans win both seats but one race is within 1 percent it will be challenged in court and the courts, who couldn’t be bothered with flagrant cases of fraud and irregularities in the presidential election, will do all they can to help the Democrat candidate overturn the results and win the seat.

    I know.

    The United States should really take the running of elections out of the hands of the Democratic party and have a non-partisan organization to organize all elections for federal office since States are obviously not capable of doing it for themselves.

    All voting could be done online and administered by the IRS with social security numbers necessary to vote, and records kept of ip numbers.

    The majority of voters would probably be able to vote on their own computers, or on cell phones, or at work, but some voting centers would have to be set up for those who didn't have access otherwise.

    Everything would thus be taken out of the hands of the states and the corrupt local officials.

    Voting should also be made mandatory, with tax refunds penalties for people who failed to vote.

    If we don't have electoral reform every national election going forward is going to be a complete mess and will probably hasten the break up of the no longer United States.

    The people who created America knew better, they said we are not governed by angels. They limited the powers of government and turned to private voluntary cooperation for as much as possible. Institutions such as the church, the boy scouts, joint stock corporations, private colleges, private owned doctors offices.

    As late as the early 20th century you can see vestiges of it, when abuses in the stock market became evident the solution was Self Regulatory Organizations. The exchanges were to regulate the market. Today everyone believes if we turn anything over to the government it will be run better and fairer.

    Ossoff's goy-baiting may not do him much good in this election. Winning the Negro vote is an important part of any succesful electoral strategy in Georgia. Negros, as a group, seem to have a natural distrust of and antipathy towards Jews. In Georgia this may be heightened by unconscious racial memories of how Jews conspired to pin the rape and murder of a young White girl on an innocent Negro male in order to get the guilty Jew, Leo Frank, off the hook.

    Trump is our first Jewish president. Maybe our first black president.

    I've got my issues with Trump. (Discipline, intellectual laziness, management, communication ... and seriously, at least a smidgen of debate prep? Just once?)

    But it's obvious Trump is one of the least ethnically biased people of all time. He grew up in a melting pot and seems to get along with all types. For Trump it isn't are you X, Y or Z it's simple ... whether or not he like you and--importantly--that you love Donald Trump!

    And Trump is clearly open and friendly with Jews--Philo-Semitic if anything.

    Which makes the cause of the torrent of abuse from organized Jewry even more clear. Trump's sin is simply that he calls 'em (e.g. shithole countries) as he sees 'em and doesn't always genuflect to Jewish minoritarian pieties. (Minorities virtuous; white people evil.)

    In short, Trump is not evil to Jewish leaders because he's the least bit anti-Semitic. (He clearly isn't.) Trump is evil to Jewish leaders because he is not anti-white.

  41. According to 2018 population estimates, GA is about 30.5% black. Only two other Deep South states have higher black percentages: MS (37%) and LA (32.5%), which are reliably GOP.

    Usually, the higher the black percentage, the safer it is for the GOP, because whites have no choice. But GA seems to be bucking this trend.

    Virginia is only 20% black and now reliably left. But TN is 17% black and fairly strong conservative, so another inconsistency.

    Tennessee is 77.2% White (73.3% Non-Hispanic White).
    Louisiana is 61.8% White (58.2% Non-Hispanic White).
    Mississippi is 58.0% White (56.3% Non-Hispanic White).

    There is much more 'diversity' in Georgia:
    57.8% White (51.8% Non-Hispanic White)
    33.5% Black
    9.8% Hispanic (of any race)
    5.1% Asian/Pacific Islander
    4.4% Other race

    NH-Whites are down to almost 50-50 in GA; coincidentally recent elections in GA have been ending pretty darn close to 50-50. Democrats perform better with GA Whites than other Deep South Whites, viz. suburban/exurban Atlantaland. The Atlanta metro area has surged to ~6 million people, and has also attracted more Asians/non-black diversity; there is no comparably large diverse major metropolitan area in TN, LA, MS.

    And Democrats just haven't invested the time and money on those other states with Mike Bloomberg funding Stacey Abrams and her orgs with millions of dollars to mobilize all those otherwise lazy, apathetic, apolitical blacks to register and turn out to vote (or now, just fill in a box on a mail-in ballot to be harvested as Stacey's "community organizers" direct them to).

    GA was already trending blue: Bush 58%-41% shrunk to McCain 52%-47% with Obama's black turnout. GA was low-hanging fruit. TN, LA, MS not worth it. TX likely next, headed in same direction. Democrats will seek to replicate their well-financed voter registration/GOTV ground game to flip Texas blue, as they've done to former red states like Virginia, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona. Trump pulled out wins in Texas, Florida, North Carolina—but they too were once red states the GOP now must fight hard for just to barely eke out wins.

    If this were any sort of “normal” year, Loeffler and Perdue would win it running away. Republicans almost always do better in midterms and runoffs than they do in presidential elections.

    The good news is that a lot of voters who are generally conservative-leaning but were tired of Trumpism may return to the fold now that Trump is (almost maybe possibly) gone. I think no small number of people are also scared shitless about what a government completely controlled by Progressives will do.

    The bad news is that various idiot Trump supporters have been claiming that the best way to help the conservative/populist cause is to sit out this election and not show up to vote.

    Ultimately I think the former tendencies will win out against the latter, but it’s sad that it’s this damn close in Georgia or that the outcome is even in doubt. Maybe that will put the fear of God into the GOP and keep them on their toes.

    If the Democrats do win I hope their first act is to raise taxes on businesses and billionaires, so many of whom think that Wokism and BLM and mass immigration is a super terrific idea, so long as they don’t have to pay for any of the consequences.

    That all presupposes that we have politics as it existed sixty years ago. If the Democrats win control of the entire government, they will begin implementing policies that all but guarantee that this country becomes a one-party state. Many of those policies will be irreversible. Almost all federal government policies are, in effect, irreversible. That’s why the best thing to do is – almost always – to not pass any legislation.

    Of course, many argue that we effectively already have a one-party state already – the uni-party. And they are largely right. Maybe this will finally be the election when conservatives realize the the Republicans are not their friends. But I doubt it.

    Ossoff’s goy-baiting may not do him much good in this election. Winning the Negro vote is an important part of any succesful electoral strategy in Georgia. Negros, as a group, seem to have a natural distrust of and antipathy towards Jews. In Georgia this may be heightened by unconscious racial memories of how Jews conspired to pin the rape and murder of a young White girl on an innocent Negro male in order to get the guilty Jew, Leo Frank, off the hook.

    The trouble with political elections in all countries is that the system only works when there are fairly large majorities, because as soon as an election is close both sides will start accusing the other of cheating and elections will come down to margins that are decided by things like members of the military who were killed in action between casting their vote and polling day, and other similar technicalities.

    It really would be better for the Democrats to win both these seats this time so that they have control of both wings of Congress and can get some legislation enacted.

    And then in four years time the nation can take a look at what has occurred and whether it has made life in the US better or worse, and then decide whether it wants to continue on similar lines, or whether the opposition party has a better plan for the future.

    “It really would be better for the Democrats to win both these seats this time so that they have control of both wings of Congress and can get some legislation enacted.”

    Except that the Democrat plan is to legalize every one of the 20,000,000 or so people currently in the US illegally, and then let in as many as possible, settling them in Republican states to turn them blue.

    “And then in four years time the nation can take a look at what has occurred and whether it has made life in the US better or worse, and then decide whether it wants to continue on similar lines, or whether the opposition party has a better plan for the future.”

    Donald Trump is the last populist president who actually tried to govern according to the Constitution and according to the basic principles on which the country was founded. In four years time, the demographic change to the country will be too great and irreversible. The Republican majority in state legislatures will also disappear, washed away by tens of millions of non-English speakers who can vote themselves unlimited free stuff.

    Jon Ossoff’s ‘Letter to the Jewish Community’

    ...I am descended from Ashkenazi immigrants who fled pogroms at the turn of the 20th century. I was raised among relatives who survived the Shoah.

    That Jewish upbringing instilled in me a conviction to fight for the marginalized, the persecuted and the dispossessed.

    ...I will champion a new Civil Rights Act to secure equal justice for all.

    ...I am running against a virulent and unrepentant anti-Semite, Sen. David Perdue, who lengthened my nose in attack ads and refused to apologize for it despite the demands of the American Jewish Committee.

    A U.S. senator who uses ancient anti-Semitic imagery to inflame hatred against his Jewish opponent must be crushed by Jewish voters on Election Day.

    Perdue has supported the growth of right-wing extremism, which is a threat to Jews in America, as it is everywhere and always. He has been one of [President Donald] Trump’s most shameless apologists, and the Trump-Perdue GOP has given rise to violent right-wing groups like the Proud Boys, who would have been at home in the German SA of the early 1930s.

    I am a committed supporter of the State of Israel. I have family in Jerusalem, and I am committed to Israel’s security as a homeland for the Jewish people...

    I know.

    The United States should really take the running of elections out of the hands of the Democratic party and have a non-partisan organization to organize all elections for federal office since States are obviously not capable of doing it for themselves.

    All voting could be done online and administered by the IRS with social security numbers necessary to vote, and records kept of ip numbers.

    The majority of voters would probably be able to vote on their own computers, or on cell phones, or at work, but some voting centers would have to be set up for those who didn’t have access otherwise.

    Everything would thus be taken out of the hands of the states and the corrupt local officials.

    Voting should also be made mandatory, with tax refunds penalties for people who failed to vote.

    If we don’t have electoral reform every national election going forward is going to be a complete mess and will probably hasten the break up of the no longer United States.

    @Jonathan Mason

    I agree completely about mandatory voting. Elections are determined by the peop,e who show up, ie. partisans. That would be tolerable if we had a healthy political culture. As it is, policy is decided by donors, and the only thing either party is willing to do for their voters is piss off partisans on the other side. Witness the dimwits, even seen here, who realize Trump was worthless, but supported him because he triggered liberals.

    If everyone were required to vote, then politicians would have to try to appeal to the largely apolitical masses. In Australia, mandatory voting means politicians try to appeal to the sane masses, not the hyper-partisans who decide American primaries, and therefore elections.

    Another benefit, though this is a bank shot, is that without being able to rely on apathy and suppression to depress the minority vote, Republicans would be much more leery of immigration. For those of us (hbd-res, populists, and nationalists) who think it is too late to do that, as immigration has already destroyed America, it will just take 20-30 years for the cake to finish baking, well, maybe they’d look more seriously to implementing policies that would slow or even reverse the coming fall of the country. Because, let’s be honest, America is dying. Not in the figurative sense of, ‘oh the children are so immature‘, but in the literal sense that more whites died than were born in the past few years. The literal nation, the ethnic group that is America, as opposed to the United States, in which the country’s blacks, Asians, and Hispanics are citizens, is shrinking. That might or might not be terrible if hostile Others were not invading and teeming with natural increase. Even when they are not truly hostile, they are aliens with different temperaments, trait means, interests, and deep culture, all of which are somewhat genetic.

    Let’s say hbd-Ed’s are wrong about absolutely everything. Population’s do not differ at all, because evolution by natural selection is untrue. Well, massive immigration has still made the country worse off. We will be more crowded, with less infrastructure and physical capital per person than we would have without immigration. Genetic or no, population differences are stable, and some populations have not productively adjusted to industrial civilization despite living in the heart of one. Whites’ culture does not have the pull and tempering effects it once had. We don’t force the immigrants to assimilate, connection with their homelands are far easier than in centuries past, whites have fewer children, so immigrants’ kids are not molded into Americans by their peers, though their cultures are changed by America, just not always for the better. Let’s also recall that immigration in the past was not all rainbows and unicorns. We cannot know what America would be like without the Ellis Island-era waves, but my guess is we would be at least as well off, with a more coherent culture. At the very least, we would be more resistant to the 1965 and later immigrants.

    So, sure, changing the past would be fantastic, but what could be done know to save the country? How would mandatory voting help? The Republicans would have strong incentive to consider things like stripping citizenship from and repatriating anchor babies and their descendants, setting the territories free (if they don’t get kicked out, the Democrats will make them states, sooner or later), cutting legal immigration to zero, implementing policies with de facto eugenic effect, and the one with the most support right now, cutting illegal immigration to zero. As it is, the vile Republican elite thinks they can use racial hatred to drive partisan racists to vote for them, while their donors pocket fortunes from the labor glut and housing shortage caused by immigration.

    As to federal control of elections, that sounds good, but keeping it nonpartisan when the two sides of the OnlyParty hate each other, norms of fair play have largely been murdered by the politicians, and ever more rides on elections, it would be nearly impossible to keep the agency nonpartisan. As it is now, Republicans think nearly-100% black polling places goose the vote with the help of the more-white, but overwhelmingly Democratic cities. Rather than avoid the appearance of impropriety and opening all the voting procedures, logistics, and counting to the cleansing light of open audit, the establishment has nixed every effort into examining the statistical anomalies of this election. I do not know if their were enough fraudulent votes in just the right places to get rid of Trump. Certainly the media has made hay from allegations that were false. But the mask truly came off the media in 2016, and has stayed off since. If there were true and false allegations, the media would endlessly report on a few false ones and never mention the ones that were more likely than not to be true. Much like the MCain-Navy fire conspiracy, the behavior of the establishment and media does not give one great faith in their dedication to process. Would you murder a baby? I’m sure you would not dream of it. You would go to considerable pain and inconvenience to avoid even hurting a baby. But if the baby were Hitler? You would be looking around for a hammer. I am sure the political establishment would not blatantly steal an election from, say, Jen. But if the election was for Trump? After their hysterics of the last five years, which were joined in on by Republican pils behind closed doors? An exceptionally close election that took a week to count the votes, and every toss up just happens to go for Biden? Every statistical anomaly just happens to favor Biden? Every late-night vote dump, some counted after poll watchers went home, at least one where ballots were taken from a suitcase pulled out from under a table, just happens to favor Biden? And the media shows no interest at all in investigating? The courts are utterly uninterested in weighing the evidence, deciding not to hear cases on grounds of standing? How would any of that be improved by all the eggs being in one basket of a federal agency? Truly it shows how little trust the right has in the elite. The elite deserve it, and have shown zero interest in reclaiming legitimacy.

    Things may eventually go completely to shit. But it will probably take a lot longer than you think. And if they do, the outcome, whatever it is, is probably nothing like what you expect.

  71. Oh, look who’s weighing in on today’s Georgia runoffs on Twitter: it’s Michelle Obama. What might she have to tell us?

    1. Vote early, and vote often. (Well, she is from Chicago.)

    2. Trump bad.

    3. “Your vote is your power,” so don’t forget to vote as many times as those friendly Democratic poll workers will let you (hint: a lot!).

    4. Trump’s refusal to accept his defeat like a good Republican — you know, like John McCain or Mitt Romney — is “just unconscionable at a time when a staggering number of Americans are dying every day from a virus that was downplayed for far too long. It’s unconscionable to focus on overturning an election rather than helping struggling families or distributing a vaccine.” That’s two uses of the word “unconscionable.” She didn’t write that.

    5. So by electing Warnock and Ossoff to the Senate, Georgia voters — all 179 million of them, give or take — will “send a message to any politician who puts themselves and their ambition above our system of self-government.” Does that include Stacey Abrams, who to this day has never acknowledged her defeat in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race, yet converted that narrow loss into an industry of self-promotion? I’m sure Mrs. Obama will get back to us on that.

    Seems right. That’s why government benefits need to go straight to the individual U.S. Citizens and never to or through a corporation or a government agency.

    Universal basic income paid directly to all non-incarcerated US Citizens and funded in part by stiff income tax of at least SIXTY percent on all annual household income over approx. $2 million (generously indexed for inflation) - no credits, deductions, allowances, carryover, exceptions.

    We can readily find other substantial recurring sources of revenue to fund a UBI in place of the existing federal welfare-state bureaucracy, that will NOT fall on the majority of US Citizens:

    — a new federal excise tax of 10% on retail non-medical marijuana sales, which will soon be in the $2 Trillion-plus range annually as populous States legalize one after the other (NJ 9 million people legalized last election, New York and Florida coming soon)

    — a new federal excise tax of 20% on cash being sent abroad (this will be paid disproportionately by non-citizens and will never be paid by most US Citizens)

    No federal bureaucracy taking its cut, just money in the pockets of 99% of non-incarcerated US Citizens. Nothing to non-citizens, convicted felons serving a prison sentence, government bureaucrats, banks, or corporations.

    What happens if (when) landlords raise rents and doctors raise their fees to soak up some of that UBI money they know we’re getting? That’s where the stiff tax on very high incomes comes in. The very wealthy owners and large shareholders of the big real-estate and medical companies will give us back most of any attempted increase. Their attempted rape of the people will result only in more tax revenue and a bigger UBI for us.

  81. They’re running this election having repaired nothing from November’s disaster? Mail-in mystery ballots accepted, no question; no signature checks required – or even attempted!; out-of-town money welcome; out-of-towners just as welcome!; Dominion machines everywhere, but it’s ok – these machines aren’t the kind that flip the totals for leftists; final tallies due sometime in the near future, but definitely not today (or tomorrow!)….

    When all of the above became glaringly, painfully evident, I emotionally detached myself from this farce – there is no friggin’ point to white-knuckling through two rigged elections in two months, death of the republic or no death of the republic. Nothing can save what’s left of this place without the immediate deployment of 100,000 Anders Breiviks, and frankly total leftist control of all communications probably including smoke signals and coded eye-blinks has reduced that to a very low order of probability. However, since nothing would rally a defeated people’s spirits like heavy casualties in Big Tech and corporate media, I’d gladly wave the Gadsden flag for any number of Charlie Hebdo-like incidents in the next few years, great or small, with bonus points awarded for any such attacks that level entire buildings like so many Sudanese aspirin factories on the day of Monica Lewinsky’s testimony.

    Agreed.

    Also necessary is providing a social fabric and an economy which allows easy family formation.

    A wage example, all those complaints about the minimum wage going up to $15 fail to take into account that $15 is roughly inflation adjusted what people made it 1968.

    Wages have gone down by half because of that insatiable lust for cheap labor.

    And note the effects have been severe, the US total fertility rate went below replacement in 1972 well before easy divorce was common or the current misandry our society is burdened with. It was economics plain and simple and any solutions that aren't driven around driving a stake through the heart of the vampire known as cheap labor will fail.

    The trouble with political elections in all countries is that the system only works when there are fairly large majorities, because as soon as an election is close both sides will start accusing the other of cheating and elections will come down to margins that are decided by things like members of the military who were killed in action between casting their vote and polling day, and other similar technicalities.

    It really would be better for the Democrats to win both these seats this time so that they have control of both wings of Congress and can get some legislation enacted.

    And then in four years time the nation can take a look at what has occurred and whether it has made life in the US better or worse, and then decide whether it wants to continue on similar lines, or whether the opposition party has a better plan for the future.

  86. Anyone follow the You Tube from our esteemed friend Scott Adams proclaiming “2021 is off to a fantastic start and Trump just won the election”?

    Yeah, yeah, Adams has his soapbox and is a blow-hard in his own inimitable “I’m so right and you’re so wrong” way.

    The reasoning goes something like this. Eyewitnesses to election fraud, in Adams view, are like so many eyewitnesses to many other things. Even if they are earnest about what they saw, one person’s “suitcases of ballots under the table” is another persons, “Debunked! Ballots are stored in under table bins!”

    Who Adams takes seriously is a “nerd” (his word about a perhaps pejorative term for someone who revels in numbers and statistics) who claims there are “logs” (of voting tabulation machines?) showing “negative votes for Trump,” said person testified before a state legislature committee in Georgia, with at least at a committee level, there was a bipartisan vote to bring this to the Legislature or some such thing.

    Whereas Adams writes humorous cartoons about engineers, “nerds” and other people one would consider “numerate”, in contrast with reporters, journalists and Mr. Biden who are demonstrably innumerate, I think what Adams says also needs to be run through one of the “filters” he speaks of. He later goes on to explain that one of these logs showed an interval of time where Mr. Biden’s vote tally was increasing and Mr. Trump’s tally was decreasing in the same amount. This is not the same as Mr. Trump receiving a negative vote total at any point, which in the way we conduct voting is impossible in the absence of a “computer glitch”, whether intentional or accidental. But still, there needs to be some good explanation how a candidate’s vote tally can decrease during the counting.

    Adams goes on to say that CNN has maintained radio silence on this development whereas Fox “mentioned it.” He asserts that the Media-Progressive-Democratic Party Complex is quick to “debunk” such claims, and the longer this story goes un-debunked, the more plausible it is that it “has legs” (my words).

    Furthermore, Adams assures his You Tube viewers that if this holds up for just one county in Georgia, the “election is over and “Trump won.” One county won’t swing the election, but hard evidence, not someone who “saw something about suitcases of ballots under the table”, but the log from an automatic tally in a machine that is can be understood by anyone looking at it, a log from one county in Georgia casts doubt on the outcome from all counties in all states.

    Perhaps Scott Adams has an optimistic view of how “the system” works. No matter if you present plain, visible proof, a judge can just bang a gavel (this happened to me in LA county 40 years ago over a parking ticket for another car that was mailed to me, and everything to happen since then — Rodney King, OJ, the damaged reservoir dam, the fires, the electric blackouts — is karmic retribution). If with such ironclad voting machine logs showing negative votes added to Mr. Trump’s tally in Georgia, too many people have too much at stake to not steamroll tomorrow’s Electoral College vote.

    But does anybody besides Scott Adams and his viewers know anything about it? Even if it doesn’t change anything, Adams states that the Big Mistake of the fraudsters is doing something to get “nerds” interested (in other words, people like iSteve on baseball), and the nerds will uncover the truth, whether it takes a day, a week, months or maybe years.

    The time to cut the size and cost of government has long since passed. I hate it, but it’s the truth. Except for military spending, everything is entitlements.

    I can't really see why it matters too much whether the government is large or small.

    In the Thatcher area in the UK many nationalized industries such as telephones, mail, water, power, gas, and railroads were privatized, as well as some services like hospital cleaning.

    However to this day it is still not really clear whether the taxpayers got a good deal or not. The one service that was not privatized was the national health service, and the standard of healthcare in the UK seems to be about as good as most other places.

    What would be the benefits of privatizing, for example, the VA or the Coast Guard, or the INS?

    I agree completely about mandatory voting. Elections are determined by the peop,e who show up, ie. partisans. That would be tolerable if we had a healthy political culture. As it is, policy is decided by donors, and the only thing either party is willing to do for their voters is piss off partisans on the other side. Witness the dimwits, even seen here, who realize Trump was worthless, but supported him because he triggered liberals.

    If everyone were required to vote, then politicians would have to try to appeal to the largely apolitical masses. In Australia, mandatory voting means politicians try to appeal to the sane masses, not the hyper-partisans who decide American primaries, and therefore elections.

    [MORE]

    Another benefit, though this is a bank shot, is that without being able to rely on apathy and suppression to depress the minority vote, Republicans would be much more leery of immigration. For those of us (hbd-res, populists, and nationalists) who think it is too late to do that, as immigration has already destroyed America, it will just take 20-30 years for the cake to finish baking, well, maybe they’d look more seriously to implementing policies that would slow or even reverse the coming fall of the country. Because, let’s be honest, America is dying. Not in the figurative sense of, ‘oh the children are so immature‘, but in the literal sense that more whites died than were born in the past few years. The literal nation, the ethnic group that is America, as opposed to the United States, in which the country’s blacks, Asians, and Hispanics are citizens, is shrinking. That might or might not be terrible if hostile Others were not invading and teeming with natural increase. Even when they are not truly hostile, they are aliens with different temperaments, trait means, interests, and deep culture, all of which are somewhat genetic.

    Let’s say hbd-Ed’s are wrong about absolutely everything. Population’s do not differ at all, because evolution by natural selection is untrue. Well, massive immigration has still made the country worse off. We will be more crowded, with less infrastructure and physical capital per person than we would have without immigration. Genetic or no, population differences are stable, and some populations have not productively adjusted to industrial civilization despite living in the heart of one. Whites’ culture does not have the pull and tempering effects it once had. We don’t force the immigrants to assimilate, connection with their homelands are far easier than in centuries past, whites have fewer children, so immigrants’ kids are not molded into Americans by their peers, though their cultures are changed by America, just not always for the better. Let’s also recall that immigration in the past was not all rainbows and unicorns. We cannot know what America would be like without the Ellis Island-era waves, but my guess is we would be at least as well off, with a more coherent culture. At the very least, we would be more resistant to the 1965 and later immigrants.

    So, sure, changing the past would be fantastic, but what could be done know to save the country? How would mandatory voting help? The Republicans would have strong incentive to consider things like stripping citizenship from and repatriating anchor babies and their descendants, setting the territories free (if they don’t get kicked out, the Democrats will make them states, sooner or later), cutting legal immigration to zero, implementing policies with de facto eugenic effect, and the one with the most support right now, cutting illegal immigration to zero. As it is, the vile Republican elite thinks they can use racial hatred to drive partisan racists to vote for them, while their donors pocket fortunes from the labor glut and housing shortage caused by immigration.

    As to federal control of elections, that sounds good, but keeping it nonpartisan when the two sides of the OnlyParty hate each other, norms of fair play have largely been murdered by the politicians, and ever more rides on elections, it would be nearly impossible to keep the agency nonpartisan. As it is now, Republicans think nearly-100% black polling places goose the vote with the help of the more-white, but overwhelmingly Democratic cities. Rather than avoid the appearance of impropriety and opening all the voting procedures, logistics, and counting to the cleansing light of open audit, the establishment has nixed every effort into examining the statistical anomalies of this election. I do not know if their were enough fraudulent votes in just the right places to get rid of Trump. Certainly the media has made hay from allegations that were false. But the mask truly came off the media in 2016, and has stayed off since. If there were true and false allegations, the media would endlessly report on a few false ones and never mention the ones that were more likely than not to be true. Much like the MCain-Navy fire conspiracy, the behavior of the establishment and media does not give one great faith in their dedication to process. Would you murder a baby? I’m sure you would not dream of it. You would go to considerable pain and inconvenience to avoid even hurting a baby. But if the baby were Hitler? You would be looking around for a hammer. I am sure the political establishment would not blatantly steal an election from, say, Jen. But if the election was for Trump? After their hysterics of the last five years, which were joined in on by Republican pils behind closed doors? An exceptionally close election that took a week to count the votes, and every toss up just happens to go for Biden? Every statistical anomaly just happens to favor Biden? Every late-night vote dump, some counted after poll watchers went home, at least one where ballots were taken from a suitcase pulled out from under a table, just happens to favor Biden? And the media shows no interest at all in investigating? The courts are utterly uninterested in weighing the evidence, deciding not to hear cases on grounds of standing? How would any of that be improved by all the eggs being in one basket of a federal agency? Truly it shows how little trust the right has in the elite. The elite deserve it, and have shown zero interest in reclaiming legitimacy.

    Russia had few Jews until it absorbed the territory of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, whereupon it had a lot of Jews. Jews were (with minor exceptions) permitted to live only in the Pale of Settlement, most of which lies outside the borders of Russia proper in Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova.

    There is no demo for Romney-Ryan magical market pixie dust? There is no female audience for man talk about the sanctity of life? Maybe conservative white men can gather in their clubhouses across the country and formulate a political philosophy that will appeal to people other than conservative white men. Until then they are adrift. The movement around Trump sadly degenerated into a strongman cult. There won’t be any opposition to open borders, Zio-wars, and technocratic totalitarianism until the white men cook up something viable in their clubhouses.

    Enterprise zones, tax cuts and more crazy ME wars. The GOPe still thinks they are the Big Business party. But Wall Street left them long ago, and big corporations don't much like the threat of some small business rising out of nowhere to steal their market share. And Big Government that creates tons of regulations and high taxes make meteoric rises of small businesses to compete with entrenched big caps practically impossible.

    If these idiots don't grasp Trumpism with or without Trump is an electoral winner after all this mess, they deserve to be turned out and eliminated like the Whigs.

    Where Russian peasants lived there were no Jews and where Jews lived there were no Russian peasants. Jews didn’t have a bad relationship with Russian peasants, they had NO relationship with Russian peasants. When my mother was deported to distant Siberia during WWII, the local villagers had never even seen a Jew.

    Russia had few Jews until it absorbed the territory of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, whereupon it had a lot of Jews. Jews were (with minor exceptions) permitted to live only in the Pale of Settlement, most of which lies outside the borders of Russia proper in Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova. All of these places were (once) within the Russian Empire but they were not Russian.

  104. OT – if you search for “vaccine placentation” or similar the search engines as one will return 10 pages of “NO, THE PFIZER VACCINE WILL NOT MAKE YOU INFERTILE NO MATTER WHAT CONSPIRACY THEORISTS MIGHT SAY”. Dig a little deeper and the actual science says there’s no evidence that the vaccine causes infertility.

    It’s hard (for me, using aforesaid engines anyway) to find what exactly the ex-Pfizer guy (Dr Yeadon) had to say (my understanding is that he mentioned the potential possibility, not the certainty, of effects on placental development), but this article in the UK Journal of General Practice (a GP is the equivalent of a family doctor), and the comment by “Jade”, was illuminating.

    https://bjgplife.com/2020/05/21/of-hervs-and-covid-19-questions-for-the-future/

    It’s right down Greg Cochran’s alley, with its suggestion of viral origins for many diseases, and it introduced me to HERVs. My emboldening.

    beyond a few virologists, who has noticed that the spike protein of Sars-Cov-2, against which teams are competing to develop a vaccine, is highly homologous with a human HERV protein, syncytin-1.(4) What, indeed, are HERV proteins? What are HERVs?

    HERVs are human endogenous retroviruses, that is to say retroviruses whose DNA, over millions of years, has become part of our DNA. All retroviruses, such as HIV, contain viral RNA which is transcribed into DNA and inserted into the host genome. Viral DNA normally leads to the production of more viral RNA, viral proteins and infective particles. In contrast HERV DNA, due to certain faults, is no longer translated into RNA and proteins. Astonishingly 8% of human DNA consists of these preserved but inactive retrovirus DNA sequences, more than is devoted to DNA coding known human proteins. HERVs have been called ’fossil viruses’. They are largely ‘selfish genetic elements’, that is to say that they are reproduced without any benefit to the host, but merely perpetuate themselves as genes.(5)

    Will the COVID-19 pandemic trigger the expression of HERV proteins in some patients and lead to the emergence of new diseases as it wanes, just as occurred after the 1918 flu pandemic?

    Do any these HERV sequences in our DNA have an active role, or are they all dormant? A few are indeed expressed. Syncytin-1, which is a HERV derived protein, causes fusion of cells in the trophoblast and has a role in placentation. Why should a virus derived protein have a role in cell fusion? Perhaps because fusing to the host cell membrane is a virus’s first task. The expression of other HERV proteins, triggered by viruses, especially EBV, can be harmful.(1) It is now suggested that this is what happens in multiple sclerosis (MS) and type 1 diabetes.(6) In MS raised levels of a particular HERV virus and protein can be found in the CSF and in active MS plaques.(7,8) In the case of MS, the trigger is probably EBV infection.(9) In type 1 diabetes the protein pHERV-W Env is expressed in beta calls.(10) Temelimab, a monoclonal antibody against pHERV-W Env has been trialled in MS and type 1 diabetes. It has had measurable success in MS, initiating remyelination of nerve cells, but no success yet in Type 1 diabetes.(11,12)

    That very common disorder, schizophrenia, with a prevalence of 1% of the population, may be associated with the expression of HERVs.(13) It has been known for a long time that schizophrenia can be triggered by infection; there was a large surge in cases after the 1918 influenza pandemic.(14)

    Three questions can now be asked about the remarkable homology recorded between SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and HER-W derived protein syncytin-1.(4) Firstly, is that why COVID-19 has adverse effects on pregnancy and child birth? (15) Secondly, is the protection women enjoy relative to men due to immune modulation by the expression of syncytin-1 during childbirth and placentation? If so, do nulliparous women not share that relative protection? It should be straightforward to find this out.

    Finally, will the COVID-19 pandemic trigger the expression of HERV proteins in some patients and lead to the emergence of new diseases as it wanes, just as occurred after the 1918 flu pandemic? There are already suggestions that this might be the case for some neurological presentations.(16) Will somebody be measuring syncytin-1 in the CSF (cerebrospinal fluid)of these patients?

    And from “Jade”‘s comment

    “My understanding from this article, from Dr. M Yeadon points sent to EMA, and from all I know is that the same antibodies developed by the body to fight against the Covid spike protein (homologous with Syncythin 1 protein from human placenta) , could very well attack own cells for example placenta, causing either pregnancy or fetal problems or, infertility – when the autoimmunity prevents placenta from developing in the first place.-“

    This is a public information post. I should point out that there are plenty of medics asserting that the spike’s not identical to syncytin-1 and ill effects are highly unlikely.

    Trump is our first Jewish president. Maybe our first black president.

    I’ve got my issues with Trump. (Discipline, intellectual laziness, management, communication … and seriously, at least a smidgen of debate prep? Just once?)

    But it’s obvious Trump is one of the least ethnically biased people of all time. He grew up in a melting pot and seems to get along with all types. For Trump it isn’t are you X, Y or Z it’s simple … whether or not he like you and–importantly–that you love Donald Trump!

    And Trump is clearly open and friendly with Jews–Philo-Semitic if anything.

    Which makes the cause of the torrent of abuse from organized Jewry even more clear. Trump’s sin is simply that he calls ’em (e.g. shithole countries) as he sees ’em and doesn’t always genuflect to Jewish minoritarian pieties. (Minorities virtuous; white people evil.)

    You can be forgiven because even a lot of Jews say things like "my family was from Russia" when they really mean that they were from some part of the Russian Empire (within the Pale). Memories fade fast, especially since a lot of immigrants were vague on geography to begin with and wanted to put their former life behind them as much as possible and told their kids as little as possible, not that their kids really wanted to hear Old Country stories anyway. It takes surprisingly few generations before it all gets completely lost in the mists of history.

    There was a double twist in that while Jews were not "Russians", everyone (Jews and locals alike) didn't consider Jews to be "Lithuanians" or "Poles" either. They were their own nationality even if they had lived in these countries for centuries. Americans, with a million different religions (or at least flavors of Christianity) have trouble understanding this concept - the intertwining of religion and language and nationality just doesn't compute for them.

    You also have to marvel at the continued efforts to paint Donald Trump as some kind of anti-Semite, no matter how nonexistent the evidence. The guy named his chief bankruptcy lawyer — an Orthodox Jew who had raised goodly sums for the settler movement in Judea and Samaria — as Ambassador to Israel.
     
    Trump is our first Jewish president. Maybe our first black president.

    I've got my issues with Trump. (Discipline, intellectual laziness, management, communication ... and seriously, at least a smidgen of debate prep? Just once?)

    But it's obvious Trump is one of the least ethnically biased people of all time. He grew up in a melting pot and seems to get along with all types. For Trump it isn't are you X, Y or Z it's simple ... whether or not he like you and--importantly--that you love Donald Trump!

    And Trump is clearly open and friendly with Jews--Philo-Semitic if anything.

    Which makes the cause of the torrent of abuse from organized Jewry even more clear. Trump's sin is simply that he calls 'em (e.g. shithole countries) as he sees 'em and doesn't always genuflect to Jewish minoritarian pieties. (Minorities virtuous; white people evil.)

    In short, Trump is not evil to Jewish leaders because he's the least bit anti-Semitic. (He clearly isn't.) Trump is evil to Jewish leaders because he is not anti-white.

    Fred Trump who Donald John naturally idolized had mixed views on the tribe for someone’s whose fortune was derived from renting and selling concrete block towers in queens to Jewish people getting outa lower east side.

    Trump himself is keenly aware of all angles so he likely sublimates it. Most of his true friends from the 70s and 80s are jewish real estate developers and billionaires like LeFrak etc. That effects you.

    Trump is on tape during the election saying ” he was against it ” when Ivanka converted and married Kushner, son of a recently pardoned jewish financial swindler. Certainly hes embraced him however. Whether thats his favorite child’s influence who knows ?

    The trouble with political elections in all countries is that the system only works when there are fairly large majorities, because as soon as an election is close both sides will start accusing the other of cheating and elections will come down to margins that are decided by things like members of the military who were killed in action between casting their vote and polling day, and other similar technicalities.

    It really would be better for the Democrats to win both these seats this time so that they have control of both wings of Congress and can get some legislation enacted.

    And then in four years time the nation can take a look at what has occurred and whether it has made life in the US better or worse, and then decide whether it wants to continue on similar lines, or whether the opposition party has a better plan for the future.

    And then when they don’t pass any of the policies progressives want, like universal healthcare, etc., they will have to make excuses or divert attention away from that on to other, symbolic or unimportant issues (“Finklethink”), to keep their base on the reservation, much like happens in reverse on the GOP side when Republican controlled Congress does nothing on issues Republican voters actually care about.

    If the Dems gain control the Senate we aren’t going to turn into a one party Venezuela overnight and we certainly aren’t going to go “socialist”. The ruling oligarchs want a gig economy with a mass population of low IQ peons who own nothing. Any kind of “socialism” they push is of the champagne socialism variety.

  133. Dems won both seats. It was over before it started. Elections have value thus are stolen.

    A good point. But I believe that the Rubicon may have been crossed this past November.

    The decision as to which two candidates will win in Georgia has probably already been decided by horse trading at the highest levels of the Democrat-Republican establishment. I suspect that the horse trading included decisions about both how to handle Trump and the very large bloc of his hard core supporters and also how to deal with the Rona Panic, e.g. whether or not to extend it and how to implement that decision, whichever way it goes, without starting a revolution.

    Political operatives in Georgia will be responsible for ensuring that tonight’s runoff elections proceed in the desired way.

    I’m not privy to the deliberations of the establishment so I won’t even venture a guess as to how tonight’s elections will go or even how the farce of certifying electors will play out in the coming weeks.

    I suspect that the establishment finally realizes the magnitude and menace of the cultural, social, economic, and political train wrecks which their policies have created over the last thirty or forty years. I also suspect that the various elements of the establishment all realize that whichever wing of the establishment is perceived by the public as being responsible for the pain and turmoil coming our way over the next several decades will suffer political setbacks of historic proportions. Different blocs within the establishment will all be jockeying to maximize power while minimizing the responsibility they will have to bear. The outcome is hard to predict. The one thing of which I am certain is that this outcome will not reflect the will of the people at large nor will it improve their circumstances.

    I think history shows that countries that devolve into corruption and fraud typically don't reverse themselves, just as states that once were reliably Red but become Blue are unlikely to revert back to Red. They may flicker Purple, but they don't revert back. It takes self-discipline and respect for a process and system to be a conservative. Progressivism doesn't require any of that.

    I’m not privy to the deliberations of the establishment so I won’t even venture a guess as to how tonight’s elections will go or even how the farce of certifying electors will play out in the coming weeks.

    I suspect that the establishment finally realizes the magnitude and menace of the cultural, social, economic, and political train wrecks which their policies have created over the last thirty or forty years. I also suspect that the various elements of the establishment all realize that whichever wing of the establishment is perceived by the public as being responsible for the pain and turmoil coming our way over the next several decades will suffer political setbacks of historic proportions. Different blocs within the establishment will all be jockeying to maximize power while minimizing the responsibility they will have to bear. The outcome is hard to predict. The one thing of which I am certain is that this outcome will not reflect the will of the people at large nor will it improve their circumstances.

    Who cares? They're basically Democrats. The only difference is that occasionally they raise some objections about subverting the will of the demos before committing subversion. Good riddance.

    Replies: @JohnnyWalker123

    Plenty of differences.

    -Taxes
    -Regulations
    -Labor issues
    -Environmental rules
    -Welfare programs
    -Judges
    -Abortion

    However, with regard to the issues that YOU care about, you have to remember one important thing.

    American politics runs on money. In America, the big money comes from Jewish donors. While these Jewish donors may disagree to some extent on certain issues (high vs lower taxes, expand vs cut Medicaid, right to organize labor vs right to work), they agree on a lot of important things too.

    In addition to all this, there’s also Epstein-style sexual blackmail, which gives certain powerful people a lot of leverage over our politicians, media talking heads, and senior intel/military officers.

    That’s why you never get what you want.

    To be fair, that’s also why the Democrats often don’t get what they want. For example, it’s politically impossible to cut defense spending and end our foreign wars. It’s equally impossible to send our leaders (like George W. Bush and Cheney) to international war crimes tribunals.

    It’s interesting that Hollywood (which is usually very liberal) made a movie called “American Sniper.” A movie that glorified a White Texan man (“Chris Kyle”) who went to Iraq and murdered 255 Muslims…. Imagine that. A Hollywood movie that celebrated a White Texan Republican murdering tons of dark-skinned Muslims in cold blood. A movie that portrays White male soldiers as saintly, while also portraying Muslims as animal-like monstrous creatures. That sounds like something that the KKK or Neo-Nazis would produce, not something that Hollywood liberals would put on screen.

    Until you remember (((who))) runs Hollywood. Then it makes a lot of sense.

    TLDR:

    Jewish money runs American politics. As long as that continues to be true, both YOU (and a lot of the far left) will continue to be disappointed by much of what you see in Washington DC. There are some issues on which you’ll get your way (like tax cuts or overtime labor pay regulations), but there are many important issues that Jewish donors (and Epstein-style sexual blackmailers) will not compromise on. This is is how it works in the USA.

    Jews also run Hollywood. So expect more movies that glorify Jewish Neocon-instigated wars in the Middle East. Movies that glorify saintly White men murdering monstrous Muslims. If you’re a liberal, you might be aghast at this type of cartoonish caricature and blatant dishonesty. However, rest assured, your concerns will be ignored.

A couple pro-war (Green Berets, Hanoi Hilton), the rest vociferously anti-war, but 100% of those are "VietNam war was bad because it hurt our boys so much."

Maybe conservative white men can gather in their clubhouses across the country and formulate a political philosophy that will appeal to people other than conservative white men. Until then they are adrift. The movement around Trump sadly degenerated into a strongman cult.

    If this were any sort of “normal” year, Loeffler and Perdue would win it running away. Republicans almost always do better in midterms and runoffs than they do in presidential elections.

    The good news is that a lot of voters who are generally conservative-leaning but were tired of Trumpism may return to the fold now that Trump is (almost maybe possibly) gone. I think no small number of people are also scared shitless about what a government completely controlled by Progressives will do.

    The bad news is that various idiot Trump supporters have been claiming that the best way to help the conservative/populist cause is to sit out this election and not show up to vote.

    Ultimately I think the former tendencies will win out against the latter, but it’s sad that it’s this damn close in Georgia or that the outcome is even in doubt. Maybe that will put the fear of God into the GOP and keep them on their toes.

    If the Democrats do win I hope their first act is to raise taxes on businesses and billionaires, so many of whom think that Wokism and BLM and mass immigration is a super terrific idea, so long as they don’t have to pay for any of the consequences.

    Fortunately, to get rid of the first and second amendment would require amending the Constitution, and that is NOT going to happen. The process requires 2/3rds votes in both the House and Senate, before it goes to the state legislatures to ratify, and it takes 38 out of the 50 states to agree.

    So, that's not going to happen.

    Will they try crazy legislation to weaken those bills in the Bill of Rights? You betcha.

    As for the other stuff, we'll see. If both win, McConnell has an ace up his sleeve -- getting Manchin to defect. He can dangle a lot of juicy stuff in front of him to make that happen.

    So all is not lost, even if they both win.

    In fact, maybe, counterintuitively, it will be a GOOD thing. Crazed Dems doing crazy things that horrify the country.

    Also, keep in mind, the census will lead to bunch of redistricting, and blues states are losing population.

    By the way, in one of his many entertaining talks, Scalia felt that the amendment process to the Constitution was in fact too hard, too difficult, as a result of the increase in the number of states since the founding of the Republic. With 13 states, geographically clustered on the east coast, it wasn't too hard -- see the Bill of Rights.

    Assuming a goofy amendment got approved by Congress, and then went to the states that put it to a popular vote, it would just take a small percentage of the population to put the kabosh on the entire enterprise. See the Equal Rights Amendment. It's why, for all her shortcomings, Phyllis Schlafly was a great American.

    If the Republican party has a future, it better start to represent the “married with children” middle class. Become the party of sane, sensible nationalist patriarchy: Borders. Immigration moratorium. Eugenic fertility. Rule-of-law. Affordable education with parental control. Re-industrialization.

    We – people like us – need to take over the party at the local level and start imposing that agenda, to the extent possible. I mean in the face of the monied interests that buy the party.

But things are looking up, and the next few years may be a bit more interesting than usual. Of course one thing this’ll do is make a few ‘moderate’ R senators extremely powerful.

    Jon Ossoff’s ‘Letter to the Jewish Community’

    ...I am descended from Ashkenazi immigrants who fled pogroms at the turn of the 20th century. I was raised among relatives who survived the Shoah.

    That Jewish upbringing instilled in me a conviction to fight for the marginalized, the persecuted and the dispossessed.

    ...I will champion a new Civil Rights Act to secure equal justice for all.

    ...I am running against a virulent and unrepentant anti-Semite, Sen. David Perdue, who lengthened my nose in attack ads and refused to apologize for it despite the demands of the American Jewish Committee.

    A U.S. senator who uses ancient anti-Semitic imagery to inflame hatred against his Jewish opponent must be crushed by Jewish voters on Election Day.

    Perdue has supported the growth of right-wing extremism, which is a threat to Jews in America, as it is everywhere and always. He has been one of [President Donald] Trump’s most shameless apologists, and the Trump-Perdue GOP has given rise to violent right-wing groups like the Proud Boys, who would have been at home in the German SA of the early 1930s.

    I am a committed supporter of the State of Israel. I have family in Jerusalem, and I am committed to Israel’s security as a homeland for the Jewish people...

    The fatal flaw of American politics is while it's still possible - and profitable - to campaign against black militant leftists by focusing one's campaign on issues of crime and social dysfunction, it is utterly and completely verboten to campaign against Jews by focusing on subversion, sedition and the Long March through the Institutions carefully camouflaged as Victim Politics.

    It's relatively simple for a nation to defang, and thus survive, the first; but no nation can long survive the second. That "anti-Semitic" historical record of countless nations' defensive expulsion of the Tribe isn't just some quaint fossil relic of faraway-and-long-ago Imaginary Kingdoms, y'know. (Then again, our children are taught daily than the America of the 1950s was one of those Imaginary Kingdoms.)

  160. Well, in answer to my question above, it looks as if it’s option B, i.e. the fix is in, with the pattern just the same as in the general election: Republicans will hold leads in both races, and then the magical mail-ins will rain down from the Democratic heavens in an exhilarating stroke of deus ex machina.

    Here’s a cut-n-paste of a very recent entry in the NYT’s GA election blog:

    All eyes were on mail-in ballots when general election results were tallied in November. And now, with control of the Senate hinging on two runoff elections in Georgia, it is no surprise that mail-in ballots are getting attention again. Here is what we know about when they will be counted:

    Mail-in ballots could not be counted before the polls closed, even if they arrived before election day. But many ballots have already been processed, meaning envelope signatures and addresses have been verified, though the tallying of the votes themselves only began Tuesday night.

    Of course, it is hard to say how long it will take for all of the mail-in ballots to be counted.

    First, some mail-in ballots may not have been received yet. Although most Georgians had to get their ballots in by the time the polls closed at 7 p.m. Eastern, military and overseas voters have three additional days for their ballots to be received, as long as they mailed them by Tuesday.

    Second, some counties will count their mail-in ballots faster than others.

    So when will all the mail-in ballots actually be counted? Only time will tell.

    Does anybody know: does the election total include all the early voting and mail in ballots? Or does Georgia make the counties wait until election day to start counting, so that we won't have final results for awhile?

    If the results don't include all the early voting and mail in ballots that are dominated by Democrats, it is hard to imagine how Republicans can win. At 9:20 EST and 68% of the vote, things are neck and neck. The addition of a lot of extra Democratic votes will give the election to the Democrats, I think.

    The question was simply whether they'd hold back tactically in GA because they'd had to act too obviously in perpetrating the gross theft and manipulation needed to overturn the presidential election. But obviously they don't care, and they aren't afraid yet of what the consequences will be.

    Fortunately, to get rid of the first and second amendment would require amending the Constitution, and that is NOT going to happen. The process requires 2/3rds votes in both the House and Senate, before it goes to the state legislatures to ratify, and it takes 38 out of the 50 states to agree.

    So, that’s not going to happen.

    Will they try crazy legislation to weaken those bills in the Bill of Rights? You betcha.

    As for the other stuff, we’ll see. If both win, McConnell has an ace up his sleeve — getting Manchin to defect. He can dangle a lot of juicy stuff in front of him to make that happen.

    So all is not lost, even if they both win.

    In fact, maybe, counterintuitively, it will be a GOOD thing. Crazed Dems doing crazy things that horrify the country.

    Also, keep in mind, the census will lead to bunch of redistricting, and blues states are losing population.

    By the way, in one of his many entertaining talks, Scalia felt that the amendment process to the Constitution was in fact too hard, too difficult, as a result of the increase in the number of states since the founding of the Republic. With 13 states, geographically clustered on the east coast, it wasn’t too hard — see the Bill of Rights.

    Assuming a goofy amendment got approved by Congress, and then went to the states that put it to a popular vote, it would just take a small percentage of the population to put the kabosh on the entire enterprise.

    Fortunately, to get rid of the first and second amendment would require amending the Constitution, and that is NOT going to happen. The process requires 2/3rds votes in both the House and Senate . . .
     
    Actually, it merely takes a majority vote of the Supreme Court to give, or take away, a Constitutional right. The Dems will have a 9-6 majority to do that if they expand the Court to 15 members and appoint six leftist ideologues to fill the new slots.

    If both win, McConnell has an ace up his sleeve — getting Manchin to defect. He can dangle a lot of juicy stuff in front of him to make that happen.
     
    They have been trying to get Manchin to defect for a decade, but it's been a no-go. Now that Schumer will be Speaker, Manchin has less reason than ever. But West Virginia will indeed get lots of goodies whatever happens. So at least that's a consolation prize for them.

    Also, keep in mind, the census will lead to bunch of redistricting, and blues states are losing population.
     
    The Blue people are just moving to the Red states, but it doesn't change the Red/Blue vote ratio for purposes of House seats.

    The Dems are going to have their window of opportunity to control everything for the next two years. Their objective will be to use that power to rig the system and lock in advantages long-term. Will they succeed? Only time will tell.

    Unless you’re one of those good republicans that by-golly just believe the dems got magical turnout again. Not only that, Biden got tons of votes in Georgia who didn’t vote down ballot. But I guess those people saw the light and decided to cast new ballots for the dem senators they didn’t vote for November.

    Trump should have laid off the constant fraud allegations, but I don’t think was the primary factor driving what looks to be a GOP loss.

    Jon Ossoff’s ‘Letter to the Jewish Community’

    ...I am descended from Ashkenazi immigrants who fled pogroms at the turn of the 20th century. I was raised among relatives who survived the Shoah.

    That Jewish upbringing instilled in me a conviction to fight for the marginalized, the persecuted and the dispossessed.

    ...I will champion a new Civil Rights Act to secure equal justice for all.

    ...I am running against a virulent and unrepentant anti-Semite, Sen. David Perdue, who lengthened my nose in attack ads and refused to apologize for it despite the demands of the American Jewish Committee.

    A U.S. senator who uses ancient anti-Semitic imagery to inflame hatred against his Jewish opponent must be crushed by Jewish voters on Election Day.

    Perdue has supported the growth of right-wing extremism, which is a threat to Jews in America, as it is everywhere and always. He has been one of [President Donald] Trump’s most shameless apologists, and the Trump-Perdue GOP has given rise to violent right-wing groups like the Proud Boys, who would have been at home in the German SA of the early 1930s.

    Okay so the mail-in votes should all be counted first before they start counting the walk-in votes. Is that right?

    In almost every single case where it is alleged that there has been a conspiracy to change the results of the election by using fake votes, there has been a complete lack of detail in the allegations.

    For example you need to know the names of the conspirators, how the fraud was carried out, and you need witnesses who will describe what they saw with actual details, like who printed the fake ballot papers, who completed them, where this was done, how many people were involvef, how these fake votes were delivered to polling stations, and so on.

    Just saying that the party that you thought was going to win lost, so that that is proof of fraud, is ridiculous.

    Obviously there will always be some dubious votes some hanging chads, and so on. But usually these will even out on both sides.

    And isn't it quite possible that Republicans have also tried to cheat just as much as Democrats? To many people it seems impossible to believe that 70 million people voted for Trump, or that anybody at all voted for Trump after his pathetic performance and continual lies over the last 4 years.

    David Perdue beat Jon Ossoff by 88,000 votes in November. A libertarian candidate - most of whose votes would have gone to the Republican - got 115,000. That's about a 150,000-200,000 vote margin for Perdue that disappeared in just two months. Most of that is on Trump.

    Maybe the one good thing to come out of this loss is that the pressure some Republican pols feel to behave like Trump is going to disappear very quickly.

    David Perdue beat Jon Ossoff by 88,000 votes in November. A libertarian candidate – most of whose votes would have gone to the Republican – got 115,000. That’s about a 150,000-200,000 vote margin for Perdue that disappeared in just two months. Most of that is on Trump.

    Maybe the one good thing to come out of this loss is that the pressure some Republican pols feel to behave like Trump is going to disappear very quickly.

    The GA runoffs are over.....the only question being the margins. Fivethirtyeight called the Nov. 3 popular vote margin within 0.3%. Using their proprietary polling melding algorithm, fivethirtyeight predicted a 1.8% margin for Ossoff and a 2.1% margin for Warnock. Then the makeup wearing girlie bedwetter DiaperDon showed up in GA for one of his lame gay rallies....probably added at least a percent to the final D victory margins.

    Trump is a moron and a blowhard and is the author of his own defeat. Hopefully, he'll retire to Scotland, and we'll never hear from him again. But commenter nebulafox has a point. Two weeks out from a decisive Senate election, upon which decides who controls the Senate, is not the time to get scrupulous about fiscal conservatism. McConnell scotched a $2k payment to people who have suffered from the Corona Lockdown regime. Hell, he could have raised the bet to $5k! What would it have mattered? It's all funny money at this point. They could have taken it out of the balance of the bill which was all given to foreign aid and moneyed interests. They could have excluded government employees (f**k them - they all still have jobs). But no, he stood on a measly - and frankly insulting - $600. McConnell is a fool.

    I share a lot of your sentiments Wilkey--as per usual.

    But here there's two different frames--short term and long term. Short term--agreed. Donald Trump has been utterly useless and destructive post-election. (And sowed the seeds of this over the previous four years.) Long term, though--why we are in this disaster where the Republicans lose elections in Georgia; to a nasty Jew and looney black both playing the minority victim card and pitching minoritarianism--is because GOP establishment goons like McConnell have been useless in defending the interest of their voters (the American middle class).


    Maybe the one good thing to come out of this loss is that the pressure some Republican pols feel to behave like Trump is going to disappear very quickly.
     
    Again it's two sided. Trump is not a font of good character, nor discipline, nor clear communication. But despite the Democrats successfully conning enough whites to dump Trump on "character" and "fitness" grounds, what actually had the establishment riled up is that Trump challenged the establishment's elite minoritarian and globalism.

    And "Trumpism" in terms of giving the minoritarian/globalism establishment the finger Republicans very much do need to copy ... or the GOP will sink into both ideological and electoral irrelevance.

    Plenty of differences.

    -Taxes
    -Regulations
    -Labor issues
    -Environmental rules
    -Welfare programs
    -Judges
    -Abortion

    However, with regard to the issues that YOU care about, you have to remember one important thing.

    American politics runs on money. In America, the big money comes from Jewish donors. While these Jewish donors may disagree to some extent on certain issues (high vs lower taxes, expand vs cut Medicaid, right to organize labor vs right to work), they agree on a lot of important things too.

    In addition to all this, there's also Epstein-style sexual blackmail, which gives certain powerful people a lot of leverage over our politicians, media talking heads, and senior intel/military officers.

    That's why you never get what you want.

    To be fair, that's also why the Democrats often don't get what they want. For example, it's politically impossible to cut defense spending and end our foreign wars. It's equally impossible to send our leaders (like George W. Bush and Cheney) to international war crimes tribunals.

    It's interesting that Hollywood (which is usually very liberal) made a movie called "American Sniper." A movie that glorified a White Texan man ("Chris Kyle") who went to Iraq and murdered 255 Muslims.... Imagine that. A Hollywood movie that celebrated a White Texan Republican murdering tons of dark-skinned Muslims in cold blood. A movie that portrays White male soldiers as saintly, while also portraying Muslims as animal-like monstrous creatures. That sounds like something that the KKK or Neo-Nazis would produce, not something that Hollywood liberals would put on screen.

    Until you remember (((who))) runs Hollywood. Then it makes a lot of sense.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99k3u9ay1gs&t=12s

    TLDR:

    Jewish money runs American politics. As long as that continues to be true, both YOU (and a lot of the far left) will continue to be disappointed by much of what you see in Washington DC. There are some issues on which you'll get your way (like tax cuts or overtime labor pay regulations), but there are many important issues that Jewish donors (and Epstein-style sexual blackmailers) will not compromise on. This is is how it works in the USA.

    Jews also run Hollywood. So expect more movies that glorify Jewish Neocon-instigated wars in the Middle East. Movies that glorify saintly White men murdering monstrous Muslims. If you're a liberal, you might be aghast at this type of cartoonish caricature and blatant dishonesty. However, rest assured, your concerns will be ignored.

A couple pro-war (Green Berets, Hanoi Hilton), the rest vociferously anti-war, but 100% of those are “VietNam war was bad because it hurt our boys so much.” NOT ONE SINGLE Hollywood film presents the war from VietNam’s angle (1 million deaths = 100 million Americans, think they’d be pissed?)

    The Jews earned themselves a bad relationship with the Russian peasantry
     
    Where Russian peasants lived there were no Jews and where Jews lived there were no Russian peasants. Jews didn't have a bad relationship with Russian peasants, they had NO relationship with Russian peasants. When my mother was deported to distant Siberia during WWII, the local villagers had never even seen a Jew.

    Russia had few Jews until it absorbed the territory of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, whereupon it had a lot of Jews. Jews were (with minor exceptions) permitted to live only in the Pale of Settlement, most of which lies outside the borders of Russia proper in Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova. All of these places were (once) within the Russian Empire but they were not Russian.

    No not really because they were both part of Poland and the people would have had similar (Yiddish) accents. There was some kind of attitude between Polish and Lithuanian Jews because they spoke Yiddish with different accents (similar to the differences between Northern and Southern US English - they could still understand each other but there were things like vowel shifts), difference in
    food preferences for seasoning savory foods with sugar, etc. - mostly in the nature of good natured ribbing rather than any serious rivalry. German Jews got even more ribbing because they had a reputation for being kind of rigid and inflexible.

    But we're probably going to lose two Senate races tonight that we didn't need to. We're going to hand the Democrats complete control of government. A lot of that is thanks to the Trump crazies who played up silly conspiracy theories and drove a lot of normal people away from the party.

    Yes, I hate the RINOs and the cucks. Newsflash: I've hated the RINOs and the cucks for far longer than probably most of the commenters on this blog. I don't know what the solution is to beating back the RINOs and cucks and Making America Normal Again, but it sure ain't by listening to Trump's madness and losing two Senate seats in Georgia.

    Trump did some good things while he was in office, but when his election was lost his job to show some g--damned dignity, fall in line, and help Republicans hold the Senate. Instead he went crazier than ever and used the runoffs to raise money for himself, rather than Loeffler and Perdue.

    The sad fact is that there are a lot of diehard Trump enthusiasts out there who a lot of Americans agree with about 95% of the time. But the second they find out you disagree on the other 5% they want to cut your throat.

    We’ve been talking about what a Warnock-and-Ossoff victory would mean for the Senate — for one thing, it would definitely raise the pressure on Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to retire. Breyer has been on the court for almost three decades (he was appointed by Clinton) and he’s in his 80s. And Biden has said that if he has the opportunity to appoint a Supreme Court justice, he wants to nominate the first Black woman to the nation’s highest court. If that happens, the entire liberal wing of the court would be comprised of women.
     
    Yes, Amelia - but would they all be lesbian women?

    Amy Coney Barrett has more biological children (5) than all three remaining Dem appointees...combined (3). If Biden appoints another childless justice, that ratio would yield a division by zero error. That's a huge lesson for the GOP. Fecund whites are the way forward.

  216. A brief timeline of the Trump Era:

    1) Spring 2016 – Trump wins the GOP primaries after a host of Republican pols and donors (Mitt Romney, etc.) fail to unite behind an alternative. It was clear from the very beginning, in Iowa and New Hampshire, that an anti-establishment candidate was going to win. It came down to Trump or Cruz. Republican leaders failed to get behind Cruz, and Trump won.

    2) November 2016 – Trump pulls out a shocking surprise victory against one of the sleaziest, shrillest, most reviled candidates the Democrats have ever put forth. Yet he only wins by 78,000 votes, total, in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. If less than 40,000 voters total in those states had switched their votes, Trump would have lost. And Hillary Clinton still managed to win the popular vote by almost 3 million.

    People who are in awe of Trump’s shocking victory forget – or would like others to forget – why it was so shocking: not because Hillary Clinton was so beloved and unbeatable, but because Trump himself was such an erratic and hopelessly undisciplined candidate (and president, as it turned out).

    3) November 2018 – Republicans, despite a fantastic economy, lose control of the House. They barely hold on to the Senate in a year with an extremely favorable Senate map after Democrats try to frame an innocent Brett Kavanaugh for the attempted rape of a 15-year-old girl.

    4) November 2020 – Trump loses the presidential election by 74 electoral votes and 7 million popular votes, but refuses to concede, citing large-scale,widespread fraud, for which he has no real evidence.

    5) January 2021 – After two months of Trump’s unprecedented attempt to overturn the presidential election, without any evidence to prove it was stolen through fraud, Republicans lose control of the Senate. David Perdue loses a runoff despite having an 88,000 vote advantage against his opponent in the general, and despite the fact that most of the Libertarian cnadidate’s 115,000 votes should have gone to him, as well.

    So the Tump era begins with him winning the GOP nomination through Republican infighting, beating Hillary by the skin of his teeth, continues with him losing control of the House, and ends with him losing control of the Senate.

    That’s our supposed messiah.

    It is time for people to let him go.

    Perdue wins. Barely. Loeffler loses. Barely.
     
    Looks more like they both lose, the Democrats eliminate the filibuster, and pack the Supreme Court. They then control all three branches of government, plus the campuses and media. They then make vote-by-mail mandatory nationwide and never lose another election again.

    Then they open the borders, enact mandatory "equity-based" wealth distribution, and eliminate the First and Second Amendments.

    Fun times ahead.

    Bullshit. The man to blame is Donald Trump. Most voters in Georgia are only vaguely familiar with McConnell, but every one of them knows Trump, and the almost unprecedented run of crazy that has spewed forth from him since he lost.

    David Perdue beat Jon Ossoff by 88,000 votes in November. A libertarian candidate - most of whose votes would have gone to the Republican - got 115,000. That's about a 150,000-200,000 vote margin for Perdue that disappeared in just two months. Most of that is on Trump.

    Maybe the one good thing to come out of this loss is that the pressure some Republican pols feel to behave like Trump is going to disappear very quickly.

    Trump is a moron and a blowhard and is the author of his own defeat. Hopefully, he’ll retire to Scotland, and we’ll never hear from him again. But commenter nebulafox has a point. Two weeks out from a decisive Senate election, upon which decides who controls the Senate, is not the time to get scrupulous about fiscal conservatism. McConnell scotched a $2k payment to people who have suffered from the Corona Lockdown regime. Hell, he could have raised the bet to $5k! What would it have mattered? It’s all funny money at this point. They could have taken it out of the balance of the bill which was all given to foreign aid and moneyed interests. They could have excluded government employees (f**k them – they all still have jobs). But no, he stood on a measly – and frankly insulting – $600. McConnell is a fool.

  219. @Scott in PA
    According to 2018 population estimates, GA is about 30.5% black. Only two other Deep South states have higher black percentages: MS (37%) and LA (32.5%), which are reliably GOP.

    Usually, the higher the black percentage, the safer it is for the GOP, because whites have no choice. But GA seems to be bucking this trend.

    Virginia is only 20% black and now reliably left. But TN is 17% black and fairly strong conservative, so another inconsistency.

    Replies: @Juvenalis

    Tennessee is 77.2% White (73.3% Non-Hispanic White).
    Louisiana is 61.8% White (58.2% Non-Hispanic White).
    Mississippi is 58.0% White (56.3% Non-Hispanic White).

    There is much more ‘diversity’ in Georgia:
    57.8% White (51.8% Non-Hispanic White)
    33.5% Black
    9.8% Hispanic (of any race)
    5.1% Asian/Pacific Islander
    4.4% Other race

    NH-Whites are down to almost 50-50 in GA; coincidentally recent elections in GA have been ending pretty darn close to 50-50. Democrats perform better with GA Whites than other Deep South Whites, viz. suburban/exurban Atlantaland. The Atlanta metro area has surged to ~6 million people, and has also attracted more Asians/non-black diversity; there is no comparably large diverse major metropolitan area in TN, LA, MS.

    And Democrats just haven’t invested the time and money on those other states with Mike Bloomberg funding Stacey Abrams and her orgs with millions of dollars to mobilize all those otherwise lazy, apathetic, apolitical blacks to register and turn out to vote (or now, just fill in a box on a mail-in ballot to be harvested as Stacey’s “community organizers” direct them to).

    GA was already trending blue: Bush 58%-41% shrunk to McCain 52%-47% with Obama’s black turnout. GA was low-hanging fruit. TN, LA, MS not worth it. TX likely next, headed in same direction. Democrats will seek to replicate their well-financed voter registration/GOTV ground game to flip Texas blue, as they’ve done to former red states like Virginia, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona. Trump pulled out wins in Texas, Florida, North Carolina—but they too were once red states the GOP now must fight hard for just to barely eke out wins.

    I've got a little good news for you.

    Start watching from 0:55-1:41. Senator Joe Manchin (a Democrat from West Virginia) has committed to NOT vote to end the filibuster.

    https://twitter.com/NoblemanGesture/status/1346701111672102912

    So that basically means that all of us need to get behind Senator Manchin and support his stance. Senator Manchin is the key to blocking the Biden agenda (most especially on immigration).

    Joe Manchin is our new favorite Senator.

    TLDR: Senator Manchin has committed to defend the filibuster. He is our own side (at least on this issue).

    If this were any sort of “normal” year, Loeffler and Perdue would win it running away. Republicans almost always do better in midterms and runoffs than they do in presidential elections.

    The good news is that a lot of voters who are generally conservative-leaning but were tired of Trumpism may return to the fold now that Trump is (almost maybe possibly) gone. I think no small number of people are also scared shitless about what a government completely controlled by Progressives will do.

    The bad news is that various idiot Trump supporters have been claiming that the best way to help the conservative/populist cause is to sit out this election and not show up to vote.

    Ultimately I think the former tendencies will win out against the latter, but it’s sad that it’s this damn close in Georgia or that the outcome is even in doubt. Maybe that will put the fear of God into the GOP and keep them on their toes.

    If the Democrats do win I hope their first act is to raise taxes on businesses and billionaires, so many of whom think that Wokism and BLM and mass immigration is a super terrific idea, so long as they don’t have to pay for any of the consequences.

    A wage example, all those complaints about the minimum wage going up to $15 fail to take into account that $15 is roughly inflation adjusted what people made it 1968.

    Wages have gone down by half because of that insatiable lust for cheap labor.

    And note the effects have been severe, the US total fertility rate went below replacement in 1972 well before easy divorce was common or the current misandry our society is burdened with. It was economics plain and simple and any solutions that aren’t driven around driving a stake through the heart of the vampire known as cheap labor will fail.

  224. I feel like hurling. Not because I especially care about either Repub Senator but because I know the state of GA and it simply has not authentically produced results like this.

    Realize this: GA has not elected a Dem Senator since 1996! And he lost re-election in 2002. Every single Senator since has been Repub (the Zell Miller appointment, a moderate Dem & former Gov, to replace deceased Repub Paul Coverdell was a one-off situation). In 24 years, not one Dem Senator! It’s a RED state.

    I lived in GA for 25 years (left in 2014) and was an Independent the entire time which meant I couldn’t vote in primaries…you had to be R or D to do so. Tonight, I decide to look up what the party affiliation numbers are these days in GA figuring it would still skew Repub. To my shock, sometime after I left, they changed to an open primary format and NO party selection when you register to vote. WHAT the heck? That must to have been done to obscure elections and make them easier to steal. It means they can promote the FAKE media narrative of “changing demographics” and no one can point to party registrations to assert differently.

    A brief timeline of the Trump Era:

    1) Spring 2016 - Trump wins the GOP primaries after a host of Republican pols and donors (Mitt Romney, etc.) fail to unite behind an alternative. It was clear from the very beginning, in Iowa and New Hampshire, that an anti-establishment candidate was going to win. It came down to Trump or Cruz. Republican leaders failed to get behind Cruz, and Trump won.

    2) November 2016 - Trump pulls out a shocking surprise victory against one of the sleaziest, shrillest, most reviled candidates the Democrats have ever put forth. Yet he only wins by 78,000 votes, total, in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. If less than 40,000 voters total in those states had switched their votes, Trump would have lost. And Hillary Clinton still managed to win the popular vote by almost 3 million.

    People who are in awe of Trump's shocking victory forget - or would like others to forget - why it was so shocking: not because Hillary Clinton was so beloved and unbeatable, but because Trump himself was such an erratic and hopelessly undisciplined candidate (and president, as it turned out).

    3) November 2018 - Republicans, despite a fantastic economy, lose control of the House. They barely hold on to the Senate in a year with an extremely favorable Senate map after Democrats try to frame an innocent Brett Kavanaugh for the attempted rape of a 15-year-old girl.

    4) November 2020 - Trump loses the presidential election by 74 electoral votes and 7 million popular votes, but refuses to concede, citing large-scale,widespread fraud, for which he has no real evidence.

    5) January 2021 - After two months of Trump's unprecedented attempt to overturn the presidential election, without any evidence to prove it was stolen through fraud, Republicans lose control of the Senate. David Perdue loses a runoff despite having an 88,000 vote advantage against his opponent in the general, and despite the fact that most of the Libertarian cnadidate's 115,000 votes should have gone to him, as well.

    So the Tump era begins with him winning the GOP nomination through Republican infighting, beating Hillary by the skin of his teeth, continues with him losing control of the House, and ends with him losing control of the Senate.

    Second, the GOP isn’t on your or my side. Its just as if not more responsible for destroying America as the Democrats are , maybe more.

    Third only solution to our issues is nationalism and populism and while imperfect at it President Trump and a few allies are the only one doing that.

    Fourth, even when the elections aren’t rigged voting for more of the same gets you more of the same. Don’t do that. The GOP establishment cannot be salvaged and the Neo Cons and Country Clubbers and the Corporate Tools need to be shown the door and the Genuine Paleo Cons and Nationalists brought in, That is if the elections work at all which is questionable.

    Hand it over to them? It looks like they have it already. The Dems now have control over the WH and both houses of Congress. The SCOTUS has shown no backbone, and appear very likely to swing left regardless of Trump's appointees. Our only recourse would be a reversion to more Federalism and less central government control, but that ship sailed, and the right was on it with the left, in the end.

    It's been apparent for some time that Trump would be the last Republican president if big changes weren't made, and very little has changed.

    Legacy Americans were holding on to our nation by a handful of hair, and that grasp has slipped. The America I was born in, and in which my family played a part in founding, survives in name only. Our Constitution no longer enumerates inviable laws and protections for citizens, but is merely the relic of a privileged and racist patriarchy. It's as likely to survive this revolution intact as any statue of a Founding Father.

    Hyperbole. Black-pilled. Sure. Say what you like.

    I highly recommend anyone not steeped in the history of revolutions to listen to Mark Duncan's podcast series, "Revolutions," which covers every revolution from the English Civil War to the Communist Revolution in Russia. I'm in the middle of Pt. 1 of Russia. The parallels to today's events, and insights to be gained, are well worth the time.

    I’ve got a little good news for you.

    Start watching from 0:55-1:41. Senator Joe Manchin (a Democrat from West Virginia) has committed to NOT vote to end the filibuster.

    https://twitter.com/NoblemanGesture/status/1346701111672102912

    So that basically means that all of us need to get behind Senator Manchin and support his stance. Senator Manchin is the key to blocking the Biden agenda (most especially on immigration).

    Joe Manchin is our new favorite Senator.

    If Manchin were really on our side, he'd switch parties and give control of the Senate to the Republicans. Manchin has made a lot of noise about being an independent moderate Democrat, but he almost always votes with his party.

    ...I am descended from Ashkenazi immigrants who fled pogroms at the turn of the 20th century. I was raised among relatives who survived the Shoah.

    That Jewish upbringing instilled in me a conviction to fight for the marginalized, the persecuted and the dispossessed.

    ...I will champion a new Civil Rights Act to secure equal justice for all.

    ...I am running against a virulent and unrepentant anti-Semite, Sen. David Perdue, who lengthened my nose in attack ads and refused to apologize for it despite the demands of the American Jewish Committee.

    A U.S. senator who uses ancient anti-Semitic imagery to inflame hatred against his Jewish opponent must be crushed by Jewish voters on Election Day.

    Perdue has supported the growth of right-wing extremism, which is a threat to Jews in America, as it is everywhere and always. He has been one of [President Donald] Trump’s most shameless apologists, and the Trump-Perdue GOP has given rise to violent right-wing groups like the Proud Boys, who would have been at home in the German SA of the early 1930s.

    No, the issue i worry about is amnesty. This one won’t even have the fig leaf of “now we’re doing enforcement” because enforcement is, of course, racist, white supremacist, against Jewish values … blah, blah, blah. So amnesty will basically signal that there is defacto open borders. You sneak in, we won’t deport you and down the road, you’re legal and become a citizen … to vote Democrat.

    Republicans need to get in front of this ASAP. Announce that it is a core position of Republican party to revoke any amnesty that is passed and to round up and deport anyone who has applied. That the Republican position is that only people who came legally can ever be legitimate. (Then we can move on to a moratorium.)

    During the Cold War it was actually maintained that Russian women were ugly.

Arkady Renko, the hero of the novel, hears this view of Osborne’s and thinks Osborne is describing a race of troglodytes. Osborne despises Russians although he actually pretty much despises everyone.

    Looks more like they both lose, the Democrats eliminate the filibuster, and pack the Supreme Court. They then control all three branches of government, plus the campuses and media. They then make vote-by-mail mandatory nationwide and never lose another election again.

    Then they open the borders, enact mandatory “equity-based” wealth distribution, and eliminate the First and Second Amendments.

    Fun times ahead.
     

    Fortunately, to get rid of the first and second amendment would require amending the Constitution, and that is NOT going to happen. The process requires 2/3rds votes in both the House and Senate, before it goes to the state legislatures to ratify, and it takes 38 out of the 50 states to agree.

    So, that's not going to happen.

    Will they try crazy legislation to weaken those bills in the Bill of Rights? You betcha.

    As for the other stuff, we'll see. If both win, McConnell has an ace up his sleeve -- getting Manchin to defect. He can dangle a lot of juicy stuff in front of him to make that happen.

    So all is not lost, even if they both win.

    In fact, maybe, counterintuitively, it will be a GOOD thing. Crazed Dems doing crazy things that horrify the country.

    Also, keep in mind, the census will lead to bunch of redistricting, and blues states are losing population.

    By the way, in one of his many entertaining talks, Scalia felt that the amendment process to the Constitution was in fact too hard, too difficult, as a result of the increase in the number of states since the founding of the Republic. With 13 states, geographically clustered on the east coast, it wasn't too hard -- see the Bill of Rights.

    Assuming a goofy amendment got approved by Congress, and then went to the states that put it to a popular vote, it would just take a small percentage of the population to put the kabosh on the entire enterprise. See the Equal Rights Amendment. It's why, for all her shortcomings, Phyllis Schlafly was a great American.

    I think history shows that countries that devolve into corruption and fraud typically don’t reverse themselves, just as states that once were reliably Red but become Blue are unlikely to revert back to Red.

    Don't kid yourself. The NYT, which is controlling the narrative for this election, as they do for so many events in 21st-century American life, has already announced what will happen. There will be mail-in votes, plus lots of votes from DeKalb county, i.e. Atlanta, that will quickly reverse the Republicans' lead.

    This is all happening in exactly the same pattern as the presidential elections in PA, WI, MI, and so on: Republicans lead up until about 90% of the vote has been counted, and then the votes held in reserve are released to get the correct result.

    It's not even subtle.

    Replies: @Jonathan Mason

    Okay so the mail-in votes should all be counted first before they start counting the walk-in votes. Is that right?

    In almost every single case where it is alleged that there has been a conspiracy to change the results of the election by using fake votes, there has been a complete lack of detail in the allegations.

    For example you need to know the names of the conspirators, how the fraud was carried out, and you need witnesses who will describe what they saw with actual details, like who printed the fake ballot papers, who completed them, where this was done, how many people were involvef, how these fake votes were delivered to polling stations, and so on.

    Just saying that the party that you thought was going to win lost, so that that is proof of fraud, is ridiculous.

    Obviously there will always be some dubious votes some hanging chads, and so on. But usually these will even out on both sides.

    And isn’t it quite possible that Republicans have also tried to cheat just as much as Democrats? To many people it seems impossible to believe that 70 million people voted for Trump, or that anybody at all voted for Trump after his pathetic performance and continual lies over the last 4 years.

    Not sure I take your meaning. Are you saying the polls are inaccurate on this? If anything, they would tend to undercount the fraction of the populace who thinks the election was stolen.

    Looks more like they both lose, the Democrats eliminate the filibuster, and pack the Supreme Court. They then control all three branches of government, plus the campuses and media. They then make vote-by-mail mandatory nationwide and never lose another election again.

    Then they open the borders, enact mandatory “equity-based” wealth distribution, and eliminate the First and Second Amendments.

    Fun times ahead.
     

    Fortunately, to get rid of the first and second amendment would require amending the Constitution, and that is NOT going to happen. The process requires 2/3rds votes in both the House and Senate, before it goes to the state legislatures to ratify, and it takes 38 out of the 50 states to agree.

    So, that's not going to happen.

    Will they try crazy legislation to weaken those bills in the Bill of Rights? You betcha.

    As for the other stuff, we'll see. If both win, McConnell has an ace up his sleeve -- getting Manchin to defect. He can dangle a lot of juicy stuff in front of him to make that happen.

    So all is not lost, even if they both win.

    In fact, maybe, counterintuitively, it will be a GOOD thing. Crazed Dems doing crazy things that horrify the country.

With 13 states, geographically clustered on the east coast, it wasn't too hard -- see the Bill of Rights.

    Assuming a goofy amendment got approved by Congress, and then went to the states that put it to a popular vote, it would just take a small percentage of the population to put the kabosh on the entire enterprise.

    Just saying that the Republicans were leading and then a bunch of Democratic votes appeared is not proof of anything. It is well known that rural areas tend to vote Republican and urban areas tend to vote Democrat, so you might get a lot of small rural counties all submitting tallies around the same time, fairly soon after the closing of polls, then much larger numbers of votes from cities coming in later on. More votes take longer to count!

    You have to look at how the paper votes are counted. Obviously they are bundled, and then bundled into bigger bundles, and then added to the tally, so in certain areas where a lot of people vote one way or the others, you will get sudden jumps in favor of one candidate or the other when those bundles of votes are applied to the running total.

He blew off any significant involvement in the stimulus negotiations (typical of his relationship with Congress), parachuted in at the last minute to make a fuss about the size of the payments (making that a salient issue weeks before the election), but then cucked and signed and signed the bill anyway to avoid a government shutdown.

    No, the issue i worry about is amnesty. This one won't even have the fig leaf of "now we're doing enforcement" because enforcement is, of course, racist, white supremacist, against Jewish values ... blah, blah, blah. So amnesty will basically signal that there is defacto open borders. You sneak in, we won't deport you and down the road, you're legal and become a citizen ... to vote Democrat.

    Republicans need to get in front of this ASAP. Announce that it is a core position of Republican party to revoke any amnesty that is passed and to round up and deport anyone who has applied. That the Republican position is that only people who came legally can ever be legitimate. (Then we can move on to a moratorium.)

    https://twitter.com/NoblemanGesture/status/1346701111672102912

    So that basically means that all of us need to get behind Senator Manchin and support his stance. Senator Manchin is the key to blocking the Biden agenda (most especially on immigration).

    Nothing good will happen in the next 4 years. However, with Manchin in there, nothing too bad (especially on immigration) will pass either. It'll just be the status quo.

    I told AnotherMom back on that Wednesday or Thursday when the debacle was clear--the Republicans will win the Georgia runoffs.

    It's not a replay, it's simply harder to get lumpen classes the Democrats depend on to show up for something less than President. (Of course, this has some much national attention, the Democrats will be doing their full court press.)

    That said, these folks are really mediocre "conservatives".

    And this Kelly Loeffler appointment was really an insult. Kemp just squeezes by the FABW, because millions of middle and working class Georgians--including my boy--went out and voted for him. Then given this appointment, he gives a Senate seat to some gal who managed to marry their very rich old boss. ("Oh, so your wife would like that Senate seat? Well, ok, thanks for your generous support.")

    If the Republican party has a future, it better start to represent the "married with children" middle class. Become the party of sane, sensible nationalist patriarchy: Borders.

    Partly this is a matter of spin or emphasis - there are still plenty of older babushka-wearing women in Russia to this day while even under Communism there were some attractive younger women.

    However, a very large part of feminine beauty is the product of artifice. There are a few women who (for a few short years) can wake up in the morning and throw on any old thing and still be attractive. Most women require a considerable amount of help ( orthodonture, hair tinting and styling, high quality undergarments, fashionable clothes, fashion magazines in order to know what is currently in fashion, makeup and maybe even a little plastic surgery, etc.) to look even halfway presentable (even a "natural" look is actually quite artificial) and all of these things (and everything else) were in short supply in the former Soviet Union (along with healthy diets, the opportunity to get a tan in the winter, etc.). In today's Russia they are (more or less) available to everyone and Russian women are very interested in taking advantage of them.

The SCOTUS has shown no backbone, and appear very likely to swing left regardless of Trump’s appointees. Our only recourse would be a reversion to more Federalism and less central government control, but that ship sailed, and the right was on it with the left, in the end.

    It’s been apparent for some time that Trump would be the last Republican president if big changes weren’t made, and very little has changed.

    Legacy Americans were holding on to our nation by a handful of hair, and that grasp has slipped. The America I was born in, and in which my family played a part in founding, survives in name only. Our Constitution no longer enumerates inviable laws and protections for citizens, but is merely the relic of a privileged and racist patriarchy. It’s as likely to survive this revolution intact as any statue of a Founding Father.

    I love watching election returns: back in 2000, I was able to see that FL was a dead heat just by running extrapolations on the numbers in my head, when the idiot "decision teams" at the nets gave it first to Gore and then to Bush (why on earth do they hire "decision teams" who are innumerate?).

    And, no, looking at all the evidence, especially the numbers, I think Trump won this thing.

    But it was stolen.

    And, fortunately, a lot of people who are not as good at numbers as I am have figured this out, too.

    Biden may occupy the White House by the end of the month. But I and about half of the American people will know he is not a legitimate President.

    I think Beijing Joe is going to find out that sometimes being an agent of a foreign government is not as much fun as you'd think.

    The truth is worse: Kamala Harris will be the real power in the White House. It’s going to be full on petty managerial authoritarianism for anybody outside the mandarinate’s favor and full carte blanche for people within. If there’s any upside, though, the malignant nature of America’s elites will no longer be deniable to anybody with a basic conscience.

    True enough. But just hoping to get a bit of kompromat was probably worth it for the Beijing regime.

    The truth is, though, that what the Biden family -- and Joe himself -- did do with the Beijing regime should be enough to keep Joe from ever getting security clearance. Of course, now that the US security apparatus is no longer loyal to the American Republic, that is not an issue.

    A brief timeline of the Trump Era:

    1) Spring 2016 - Trump wins the GOP primaries after a host of Republican pols and donors (Mitt Romney, etc.) fail to unite behind an alternative. It was clear from the very beginning, in Iowa and New Hampshire, that an anti-establishment candidate was going to win. It came down to Trump or Cruz. Republican leaders failed to get behind Cruz, and Trump won.

    2) November 2016 - Trump pulls out a shocking surprise victory against one of the sleaziest, shrillest, most reviled candidates the Democrats have ever put forth. Yet he only wins by 78,000 votes, total, in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. If less than 40,000 voters total in those states had switched their votes, Trump would have lost. And Hillary Clinton still managed to win the popular vote by almost 3 million.

    People who are in awe of Trump's shocking victory forget - or would like others to forget - why it was so shocking: not because Hillary Clinton was so beloved and unbeatable, but because Trump himself was such an erratic and hopelessly undisciplined candidate (and president, as it turned out).

    3) November 2018 - Republicans, despite a fantastic economy, lose control of the House. They barely hold on to the Senate in a year with an extremely favorable Senate map after Democrats try to frame an innocent Brett Kavanaugh for the attempted rape of a 15-year-old girl.

    4) November 2020 - Trump loses the presidential election by 74 electoral votes and 7 million popular votes, but refuses to concede, citing large-scale,widespread fraud, for which he has no real evidence.

    5) January 2021 - After two months of Trump's unprecedented attempt to overturn the presidential election, without any evidence to prove it was stolen through fraud, Republicans lose control of the Senate. David Perdue loses a runoff despite having an 88,000 vote advantage against his opponent in the general, and despite the fact that most of the Libertarian cnadidate's 115,000 votes should have gone to him, as well.

    So the Tump era begins with him winning the GOP nomination through Republican infighting, beating Hillary by the skin of his teeth, continues with him losing control of the House, and ends with him losing control of the Senate.

    That's our supposed messiah.

    It is time for people to let him go.

    Really? You don't think Trump took shady foreign money at any point? The dude was a real estate developer in 1980s and 1990s NYC. That doesn't mean I buy the notion that he owed the Russians his election. Same applies here. Nobody in Beijing forced Donald Trump to embrace Kushnerism or whine constantly about Fauci or the CDC's racist "death equity" fantasies while removing do anything concretely about either.

    I'm ideologically closer to the MAGA crowd than I am to the Antifa crowd: there's no real choice to be had there given the latter's view of non-woke white men, really, but there you go. I'd rather have Trump in office than Harris, because Trump doesn't hate me. That doesn't mean I can't use my brain and figure out that they both are running rampant because our ruling elites are willing to do anything except concretely solve problems people want them to fix. Above all the ever-decreasing material living standards of average Americans. The pandemic accelerated this, but the problems go deeper to the rentier plutocracy that has been set up over the last several decades.

    Trump is irrelevant, but his long-term impact is not: the GOP Establishment is never going to win another Presidential election, and will have a hard time holding onto what they have. Trump keeping them alive on the deathbed has allowed them to imagine that they aren't doomed. The Republican Party either ditches Zombie Reaganism, or they die. It's that simple. It's not the 1980s or the 1990s anymore, it is 2021. Adopt a platform that recognizes it.

    The truth is, I don't think anybody in our ruling class cares about either vaccinating people quickly or delivering aid simply because they are just fine with the current situation. It doesn't impact them and their lives, and unless that changes, there is no incentive for them to change. Western technocracies are trained to implement The Process. It's not the same as actually doing something productive.

    Abstract moralizing will change nothing. The pandemic and the lockdowns are exacerbating a problem that has been in the making for decades. The American rentier economy is churning out serfs, not citizens. And no matter how much nobles throughout history moans and groan for serfs to embrace the values of restraint, discipline, and control that they want them to, serfs never do. Why would they? How can they? Their lives are completely at the whim of often morally arbitrary forces beyond their control, and they know it.

    If the Biden Administration gets everybody vaccinated within six months, and lockdowns are a thing of the past by summer, then America's elites-cultural, political, and economic-will get away with their malfeasance and incompetence, because people are so desperate for hope, for any kind of future, that they'll gladly take that. But I doubt they'll do it. The riots going on now and last year? They are going to pale in comparison with what is going to happen if they try combining indefinite lockdowns with relief withdrawal. Same if the Democrats try a full marginalization of elements of American society they hate: not after openly throwing their own pandemic rules into the waste backet for the political causes they approved of in 2020. Good luck not having riots. Americans learned a very simple lesson last year: riots are the one way you can get authorities to pay attention to you now. People are delusional if they think this is only going to apply to causes they like.

    Sweden disestablished her church a decade ago. That was privatization, too, at least on the surface. They may still receive tax crowns, as the unofficial German churches receive tax marks.

    The question was simply whether they'd hold back tactically in GA because they'd had to act too obviously in perpetrating the gross theft and manipulation needed to overturn the presidential election. But obviously they don't care, and they aren't afraid yet of what the consequences will be.

    This is classic organized crime.

    The crooks live high on the hog and rub everyone’s noses in it.

    In the case of old-fashioned American organized crime (the “Mafia”) it took six decades to finally lock up the leaders of the “five families”.

    In retrospect it looks like the “leaders” of American “politics” decided that _they_ were to have the monopoly on organized crime, no competitors allowed.

    The looting of the economy is easily understood as a large scale version of the old Mafia “skim” from the casinos.

    The mob made sure that any law enforcement officials and regulators were on the take _before_ entering the “market”.

    Looks more like they both lose, the Democrats eliminate the filibuster, and pack the Supreme Court. They then control all three branches of government, plus the campuses and media. They then make vote-by-mail mandatory nationwide and never lose another election again.

    Then they open the borders, enact mandatory “equity-based” wealth distribution, and eliminate the First and Second Amendments.

    Fun times ahead.
     

    Fortunately, to get rid of the first and second amendment would require amending the Constitution, and that is NOT going to happen. The process requires 2/3rds votes in both the House and Senate, before it goes to the state legislatures to ratify, and it takes 38 out of the 50 states to agree.

    So, that's not going to happen.

    Will they try crazy legislation to weaken those bills in the Bill of Rights? You betcha.

    As for the other stuff, we'll see. If both win, McConnell has an ace up his sleeve -- getting Manchin to defect. He can dangle a lot of juicy stuff in front of him to make that happen.

    So all is not lost, even if they both win.

    In fact, maybe, counterintuitively, it will be a GOOD thing. Crazed Dems doing crazy things that horrify the country.

    Also, keep in mind, the census will lead to bunch of redistricting, and blues states are losing population.

    By the way, in one of his many entertaining talks, Scalia felt that the amendment process to the Constitution was in fact too hard, too difficult, as a result of the increase in the number of states since the founding of the Republic. With 13 states, geographically clustered on the east coast, it wasn't too hard -- see the Bill of Rights.

    Assuming a goofy amendment got approved by Congress, and then went to the states that put it to a popular vote, it would just take a small percentage of the population to put the kabosh on the entire enterprise. See the Equal Rights Amendment. It's why, for all her shortcomings, Phyllis Schlafly was a great American.

    Fortunately, to get rid of the first and second amendment would require amending the Constitution, and that is NOT going to happen. The process requires 2/3rds votes in both the House and Senate . . .

    Actually, it merely takes a majority vote of the Supreme Court to give, or take away, a Constitutional right. The Dems will have a 9-6 majority to do that if they expand the Court to 15 members and appoint six leftist ideologues to fill the new slots.

    If both win, McConnell has an ace up his sleeve — getting Manchin to defect. He can dangle a lot of juicy stuff in front of him to make that happen.

    They have been trying to get Manchin to defect for a decade, but it’s been a no-go. Now that Schumer will be Speaker, Manchin has less reason than ever. But West Virginia will indeed get lots of goodies whatever happens. So at least that’s a consolation prize for them.

    Also, keep in mind, the census will lead to bunch of redistricting, and blues states are losing population.

    The Blue people are just moving to the Red states, but it doesn’t change the Red/Blue vote ratio for purposes of House seats.

    The Dems are going to have their window of opportunity to control everything for the next two years. Their objective will be to use that power to rig the system and lock in advantages long-term. Will they succeed? Only time will tell.

  342. The US has an old problem. We’ve got the old Rotten Borough system that Britain used to have, in which the vote was routinely stolen in Rotten Boroughs (Democratic strongholds). Until we can get rid of it, we’ll never have free and fair elections again.

    GOP must offer the sun and the moon to West Virginia’s Senator Joe Manchin in return for his switching parties next week:

    1. the chairmanship of any committee he wants, plus

    2. The number three spot in the U.S. Senate Republican MAJORITY hierarchy, right behind McConnell and the number two tool, plus

    3. The relocation of some federal agency office to West Virginia, bringing at least a thousand jobs to that small State, plus

    4. Funding for road, bridge, rail, school, and hospital construction, repair, and expansion in every county of WVA.

    Manchin’s got enormous leverage. He should use it for the people of his State. And hopefully postpone the gun confiscation, official censorship of the internet, and the other things we can expect under a Dem Prez-select and Dem Congress.

    Both parties cheat for sure, but I think the Democrats just do it better. They have well-oiled political machinery in place in densely-packed urban areas that have been perfecting their grift for decades. Chicago, Detroit, LA, Baltimore, etc. Many have talked openly about how corrupt Chicago is, as if it's just matter of fact...fraud is just expected. But this year there was no fraud of course.

    Replies: @Jonathan Mason

    Sure, but if you are going to make accusations stick, there has to be evidence.

    For example fake mail-in ballots. I presume they are printed on some kind of special paper with special inks with watermarks, etc. Who is faking them? Or are the original printers printing extras on the side and selling them to–well, to whom? How many people are in on the conspiracy?

    Just saying that the Republicans were leading and then a bunch of Democratic votes appeared is not proof of anything. It is well known that rural areas tend to vote Republican and urban areas tend to vote Democrat, so you might get a lot of small rural counties all submitting tallies around the same time, fairly soon after the closing of polls, then much larger numbers of votes from cities coming in later on. More votes take longer to count!

    You have to look at how the paper votes are counted. Obviously they are bundled, and then bundled into bigger bundles, and then added to the tally, so in certain areas where a lot of people vote one way or the others, you will get sudden jumps in favor of one candidate or the other when those bundles of votes are applied to the running total.

    Your presumption is wrong. Anybody with a laser printer and a copy machine can make all the mail-in ballots they want.

    To the extent there is any authentication at all, it is based on the voter's signature on the exterior envelope (which can itself be easily laser-printed and stuffed by machine). They obviously weren't checking those as the mail-in rejection rate dropped from about 3% in all prior elections to about .03%. And once they pull the piece of paper that is the ballot out of the envelope, it's all over. The fake ballot is mixed in with all others and counted.

    Poll watchers in Georgia testified to seeing masses of mail-in ballots which were clearly laser printed with perfect (not hand marked) circles and no creases (meaning they had not been folded as would be necessary if they had been received in envelopes). This could be easily confirmed or refuted by auditing the electronically stored images of the ballots, which would show distinctive marks if they were folded and filled out by hand.

    A bipartisan committee of the Georgia Legislature unanimously voted to require such an audit of the images, but the actual ballots remain hidden by the corrupt secretary of state who is running out the clock.

    Unfortunately, due to the media censorship and gaslighting, even the people on this board are totally ignorant of the facts and assume that it must be a debunked "conspiracy theory" because they haven't heard about it in the media. Kinda sad, really.

    Seems right. That’s why government benefits need to go straight to the individual U.S. Citizens and never to or through a corporation or a government agency.

    Universal basic income paid directly to all non-incarcerated US Citizens and funded in part by stiff income tax of at least SIXTY percent on all annual household income over approx. $2 million (generously indexed for inflation) – no credits, deductions, allowances, carryover, exceptions.

    We can readily find other substantial recurring sources of revenue to fund a UBI in place of the existing federal welfare-state bureaucracy, that will NOT fall on the majority of US Citizens:

    — a new federal excise tax of 10% on retail non-medical marijuana sales, which will soon be in the $2 Trillion-plus range annually as populous States legalize one after the other (NJ 9 million people legalized last election, New York and Florida coming soon)

    — a new federal excise tax of 20% on cash being sent abroad (this will be paid disproportionately by non-citizens and will never be paid by most US Citizens)

    No federal bureaucracy taking its cut, just money in the pockets of 99% of non-incarcerated US Citizens. Nothing to non-citizens, convicted felons serving a prison sentence, government bureaucrats, banks, or corporations.

    What happens if (when) landlords raise rents and doctors raise their fees to soak up some of that UBI money they know we’re getting? That’s where the stiff tax on very high incomes comes in. The very wealthy owners and large shareholders of the big real-estate and medical companies will give us back most of any attempted increase. Their attempted rape of the people will result only in more tax revenue and a bigger UBI for us.

    Replies: @nebulafox

    Trump is irrelevant, but his long-term impact is not: the GOP Establishment is never going to win another Presidential election, and will have a hard time holding onto what they have. Trump keeping them alive on the deathbed has allowed them to imagine that they aren’t doomed. The Republican Party either ditches Zombie Reaganism, or they die. It’s that simple. It’s not the 1980s or the 1990s anymore, it is 2021. Adopt a platform that recognizes it.

    The truth is, I don’t think anybody in our ruling class cares about either vaccinating people quickly or delivering aid simply because they are just fine with the current situation. It doesn’t impact them and their lives, and unless that changes, there is no incentive for them to change. Western technocracies are trained to implement The Process. It’s not the same as actually doing something productive.

    Abstract moralizing will change nothing. The pandemic and the lockdowns are exacerbating a problem that has been in the making for decades. The American rentier economy is churning out serfs, not citizens. And no matter how much nobles throughout history moans and groan for serfs to embrace the values of restraint, discipline, and control that they want them to, serfs never do. Why would they? How can they? Their lives are completely at the whim of often morally arbitrary forces beyond their control, and they know it.

    If the Biden Administration gets everybody vaccinated within six months, and lockdowns are a thing of the past by summer, then America’s elites-cultural, political, and economic-will get away with their malfeasance and incompetence, because people are so desperate for hope, for any kind of future, that they’ll gladly take that. But I doubt they’ll do it. The riots going on now and last year? They are going to pale in comparison with what is going to happen if they try combining indefinite lockdowns with relief withdrawal. Same if the Democrats try a full marginalization of elements of American society they hate: not after openly throwing their own pandemic rules into the waste backet for the political causes they approved of in 2020. Good luck not having riots. Americans learned a very simple lesson last year: riots are the one way you can get authorities to pay attention to you now. People are delusional if they think this is only going to apply to causes they like.

    What a day! There’s pictures at Yahoo of a guy sitting in Nancy Pelosi’s chair at her office and other sitting at a desk in the Senate Chamber:

    Some woman got shot and is in critical condition. This was not worth anybody losing their life. Yahoo says “Trump, who had spoken at a rally earlier in the day urging demonstrators to surround the Capitol, was reportedly watching the chaos unfold from the White House dining room.” How can he deny responsibility for whatever happens? This is too little too late: “I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence!” he tweeted more than an hour after the Capitol was breached. “Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order — respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!”

    The Republicans are completely responsible for the gains of the Left in Georgia through their support of businesses that brought in millions of transplants and immigrants who will never vote Republican, or fit in, and all under the guise of "jobs for Georgians." What a bunch of crooks! They deserve much worse than losing electoral relevance.

    Many districts that used to go Republican with 70% or more are now toss-ups or worse. I doubt that Newt Gingrich could win in his old district today, but he'd certainly stand up and shill for the establishment and act like he's somehow connected to Georgia. What a fraud!

    I think there was fraud in the last election, but, again, the Republicans refuse to stand up for their base. It's almost like they despise their own voters, which they most likely do.

    He’s made it clear that he considers the lives of millions of Americans not worth spending an extra 1,400 dollars on, yet is perfectly fine with spending millions on new SJW-fied museums if the Democrats agree with cutting taxes on martinis for executives during their lunch breaks. She’s made it clear that she does not think winning the Electoral College means legitimacy, and she also does not think that law and order does not apply to people she does not find offensive, right down to people who publicly poop anywhere in the Bay (except on her driveway, of course), or that pandemic control measures apply to her and her colleagues, who due to their age disproportionately belong to the most COVID-vulnerable section of American society.

    It’s too late now. The rioters are not going to listen to reason, so they’ll have to be crushed, just like any other form of civil disorder. But this is going to happen again and again if American’s governing class remains insistent on prioritizing everything and anything over their citizens, and a bureaucratic system seemingly hellbent on dishing out pain remains untouchable.

    If Warnock or Ossoff legitimately won, it's not because of black voters. The votes that would have made a black like Warnock anywhere near a viable candidate in Georgia came from the immigrants and transplants that Georgia Republican leaders have gone out of their way to bring into the state for the last 60 years. Warnock would have been a long-shot in Georgia even 10 years ago.

    Sure, but if you are going to make accusations stick, there has to be evidence.

    For example fake mail-in ballots. I presume they are printed on some kind of special paper with special inks with watermarks, etc. Who is faking them? Or are the original printers printing extras on the side and selling them to--well, to whom? How many people are in on the conspiracy?

    Just saying that the Republicans were leading and then a bunch of Democratic votes appeared is not proof of anything. It is well known that rural areas tend to vote Republican and urban areas tend to vote Democrat, so you might get a lot of small rural counties all submitting tallies around the same time, fairly soon after the closing of polls, then much larger numbers of votes from cities coming in later on. More votes take longer to count!

    You have to look at how the paper votes are counted. Obviously they are bundled, and then bundled into bigger bundles, and then added to the tally, so in certain areas where a lot of people vote one way or the others, you will get sudden jumps in favor of one candidate or the other when those bundles of votes are applied to the running total.

    Replies: @Hypnotoad666, @PhysicistDave

    For example fake mail-in ballots. I presume they are printed on some kind of special paper with special inks with watermarks, etc. Who is faking them?

    Your presumption is wrong. Anybody with a laser printer and a copy machine can make all the mail-in ballots they want.

    To the extent there is any authentication at all, it is based on the voter’s signature on the exterior envelope (which can itself be easily laser-printed and stuffed by machine). They obviously weren’t checking those as the mail-in rejection rate dropped from about 3% in all prior elections to about .03%. And once they pull the piece of paper that is the ballot out of the envelope, it’s all over. The fake ballot is mixed in with all others and counted.

    Poll watchers in Georgia testified to seeing masses of mail-in ballots which were clearly laser printed with perfect (not hand marked) circles and no creases (meaning they had not been folded as would be necessary if they had been received in envelopes). This could be easily confirmed or refuted by auditing the electronically stored images of the ballots, which would show distinctive marks if they were folded and filled out by hand.

    A bipartisan committee of the Georgia Legislature unanimously voted to require such an audit of the images, but the actual ballots remain hidden by the corrupt secretary of state who is running out the clock.

    Unfortunately, due to the media censorship and gaslighting, even the people on this board are totally ignorant of the facts and assume that it must be a debunked “conspiracy theory” because they haven’t heard about it in the media. Kinda sad, really.

    True enough. But just hoping to get a bit of kompromat was probably worth it for the Beijing regime.

    The truth is, though, that what the Biden family — and Joe himself — did do with the Beijing regime should be enough to keep Joe from ever getting security clearance. Of course, now that the US security apparatus is no longer loyal to the American Republic, that is not an issue.

    I suppose part of the reason I'm being militant about this is because blaming foreign governments for America's current situation is a cop-out: Americans are the ones who've been mismanaging America and putting us in a situation where foreign governments (including the ones that our media refuse to talk about as much as the ones that they do) are in a position to do the stuff they do. That, and I really don't put it beyond our elites to start a war in a last-ditch effort to keep themselves on top and stamp out any attempts to get rid of them.

    “The acting secretary of defense, Christopher Miller, said in a statement that he discussed the deployment of National Guard troops to the Capitol with Mike Pence, not Donald Trump.

    “Chairman Milley and I just spoke separately with the Vice President and with Speaker Pelosi, Leader McConnell, Senator Schumer and Representative Hoyer about the situation at the U.S. Capitol,” Miller said in the statement.

    “We have fully activated the D.C. National Guard to assist federal and local law enforcement as they work to peacefully address the situation. We are prepared to provide additional support as necessary and appropriate as requested by local authorities.”

    Not sure I take your meaning. Are you saying the polls are inaccurate on this? If anything, they would tend to undercount the fraction of the populace who thinks the election was stolen.

    Anyway, it seems to be way over 50 % of the Trump voters and between 30 and 40 % of the country overall.

    "Well, I myself thought that Trump was obligated by his oath of office to invoke the Insurrection Act a long time ago."

    Only for domestic disorder, which does not apply to what he wants to use it for. Before invoking it, the president "must first issue a proclamation ordering the insurgents to disperse within a limited time, 10 U.S.C. § 334.4. If the situation does not resolve itself, the President may issue an executive order to send in troops," according to a 2006 report by the Congressional Research Service.

    So, who are the insurgents? Where are they exactly? How do election results equate to "domestic disorder"?

    "Not sure I take your meaning. Are you saying the polls are inaccurate on this?"

    I am saying that if there was a poll of 1000 people, and 40 percent of the respondents stated they believed the election was stolen, it would only be 400 people.

    "If anything, they would tend to undercount the fraction of the populace who thinks the election was stolen."

    So, what sources are you able to provide to show exactly that tens of millions of people believe that the election was stolen?

    Biden took BIG money from China, Russia, and Ukraine.

    This is a fact.

    Biden is a national security risk and he is guilty of treason.

    However.....every institution in America is corrupt, from the intelligence agencies to the courts, so nothing will be done about Biden and his crackhead loser son.

    In the same vein, nothing will be done about Antifa, BLM, and black crime......while whites will continue to suffer under anarcho-tyranny.

    Really? You don’t think Trump took shady foreign money at any point? The dude was a real estate developer in 1980s and 1990s NYC. That doesn’t mean I buy the notion that he owed the Russians his election. Same applies here. Nobody in Beijing forced Donald Trump to embrace Kushnerism or whine constantly about Fauci or the CDC’s racist “death equity” fantasies while removing do anything concretely about either.

    I’m ideologically closer to the MAGA crowd than I am to the Antifa crowd: there’s no real choice to be had there given the latter’s view of non-woke white men, really, but there you go. I’d rather have Trump in office than Harris, because Trump doesn’t hate me. That doesn’t mean I can’t use my brain and figure out that they both are running rampant because our ruling elites are willing to do anything except concretely solve problems people want them to fix. Above all the ever-decreasing material living standards of average Americans. The pandemic accelerated this, but the problems go deeper to the rentier plutocracy that has been set up over the last several decades.

    (Nor does that mean I think those idiots showing their faces to the cameras aren’t going to deserve their inevitable prison sentences.)

    All the riots we’ve seen since last year are exacerbated by the same factor-utter despair and frustration. Radical statement. You don’t have to like it to recognize it. You think any of this would have happened if the lockdowns weren’t driving people insane during an economic crunch?

    Sure, but if you are going to make accusations stick, there has to be evidence.

    For example fake mail-in ballots. I presume they are printed on some kind of special paper with special inks with watermarks, etc. Who is faking them? Or are the original printers printing extras on the side and selling them to--well, to whom? How many people are in on the conspiracy?

    Just saying that the Republicans were leading and then a bunch of Democratic votes appeared is not proof of anything. It is well known that rural areas tend to vote Republican and urban areas tend to vote Democrat, so you might get a lot of small rural counties all submitting tallies around the same time, fairly soon after the closing of polls, then much larger numbers of votes from cities coming in later on. More votes take longer to count!

    You have to look at how the paper votes are counted. Obviously they are bundled, and then bundled into bigger bundles, and then added to the tally, so in certain areas where a lot of people vote one way or the others, you will get sudden jumps in favor of one candidate or the other when those bundles of votes are applied to the running total.

    Democrats have reclaimed control of the Senate.

    I like the “reclaimed” context. It sort of insinuates that it’s rightfully the Dems…and that’s so NYT. The Senate has been both Rep. and Dem. controlled in the past, so that word could be used whenever there’s a change in partisan majority, but I somehow suspect that it won’t be used by the Times if the Reps. ever retake the Senate. If they don’t use “retake” they’ll use “gained control.”

    From the guardian.com live coverage page I cited above:

    Unbelievable!!! Trump was left out of discussions to call out the National Guard. The Secretary of Defense and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff talked with Pence and Congressional leaders instead.

    "Pentagon says Pence, not Trump, approved National Guard deployment

    "The acting secretary of defense, Christopher Miller, said in a statement that he discussed the deployment of National Guard troops to the Capitol with Mike Pence, not Donald Trump.

    “Chairman Milley and I just spoke separately with the Vice President and with Speaker Pelosi, Leader McConnell, Senator Schumer and Representative Hoyer about the situation at the U.S. Capitol,” Miller said in the statement.

    “We have fully activated the D.C. National Guard to assist federal and local law enforcement as they work to peacefully address the situation. We are prepared to provide additional support as necessary and appropriate as requested by local authorities.”

    There were earlier reports that the Pentagon had initially denied the request for National Guard troops to be deployed, but reinforcements have now been sent to the Capitol."

    Replies: @Lace the Artist Formerly Known as Race

    Not consulting Trump was exactly right. He doesn’t want the National Guard to be deployed, and has been sitting around watching the events on TV all afternoon. Not a single forceful command to the criminals who broke into the White House. I suppose you think they’re Patriots. Well, they’re not.

    He was looking for an opportunity and at least Miller and the Joint Chiefs knew that, after Trump had condemned Pence for having no choice but to do his ceremonial duties, he’d be unable to do anything reasonable. He’s so obviously certifiably insane.

    GOP must offer the sun and the moon to West Virginia’s Senator Joe Manchin in return for his switching parties next week:

    1. the chairmanship of any committee he wants, plus

    2. The number three spot in the U.S. Senate Republican MAJORITY hierarchy, right behind McConnell and the number two tool, plus

    3. The relocation of some federal agency office to West Virginia, bringing at least a thousand jobs to that small State, plus

    4. Funding for road, bridge, rail, school, and hospital construction, repair, and expansion in every county of WVA.

    Manchin’s got enormous leverage. He should use it for the people of his State. And hopefully postpone the gun confiscation, official censorship of the internet, and the other things we can expect under a Dem Prez-select and Dem Congress.
