Forget Calls by Left to Meet Halfway

 

All too often, there is this game played by the leftists and the media against the right and the people. This game follows the same old route every time but somehow it almost always claims it has worked. The affair starts with calls by leftist leaders calling for peace and an end to the bitter atmosphere between the Left and the Right. The media jumps on this olive branch being offered all but demanding understanding and a meeting in the middle by the political rivals. The invitation continues to hang and the media pounds the message home at every opportunity. Eventually, the leadership from the right weakens and it starts to look as if there will be a meeting in the middle. That is when the slide begins where the left ever so faster move their positions further left and further left until meeting in the middle becomes meeting in the left rather than the middle, as advertised. Currently, there is no call from the left in the United States for a meeting between the left and the right but if the left can ever calm down and accept their loss by Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump, then possibly the two sides can talk. What is interesting, the left in the United States is increasingly moving to the left without having requested or even hinted at any hope of working together with their rivals on the right. Instead, the left is demanding that they be permitted to call the agenda because it is their fair and proper place in the way of things. They claim it is their right and that despite losing the election, they have the moral right and responsibility to continue the programs and initiatives which are the only proper and true path which the nation must go. They are convinced along with the legions who claim that Hillary Clinton did win the elections except for interference from the Russians, James Comey, the FBI, Wikileaks, sexism, working class refuse to believe a woman can be President and lack of support from the Democrat Party itself, that all the power rightfully should lie with them. So, because she won except for cheating by the world and everyone being against her, it gives the leftists the right to dictate policy as if they held both houses of Congress and the White House because if the world was the way it should be, that would be the reality.

 

Hillary Clinton miserable

I Lost? Impossible! Trump won? Impossible! He won what states? Impossible!
You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.

 

Oh, so you doubt that. Have you read my Facebook page and all the leftists telling me how the world demands that they be granted the right to rule everything? I see it every day and it is truly amazing. Now there are rumors that those behind the demonstrations and racket about Hillary winning the election are arranging for grand demonstrations across the nation in every major city. One has to wonder what they believe all their racket and screaming and protesting and just plain noise, the same type interference one used to see when they fell asleep watching television and the station had gone off the air and you just had white noise meaning nothing, will accomplish. I actually know what some of them believe they will be capable of actually accomplishing, they believe they will end up driving President Trump from office and also drive Pence, Ryan and the rest of the Republicans from office and take over permanently and control the United States without any opposition. They believe they can override the Constitution and rewrite the rules declaring themselves as permanent rulers. They honestly believe that the Republicans are fascists and thus must be driven from all the halls of power allowing themselves to be running the show with absolute power forever. They believe they should be permitted to send anyone who opposes their rule and what they wish to install to places where they can be educated to believe the correct ideas and join the program and get onboard. They see themselves as the real heart of the people and the proper ways of the world as it should be and, by gosh golly, it will be. They will not be happy until they are placed in charge and everybody is brought to understand how their ways and ideas are the only true and proper way and the United States will be brought to understand this no matter what it takes. Oh, and they are most definitely not fascists or dictatorial in any way, they are the popular and rightful leaders of the nation because Hillary Clinton received the popular vote, and that ends it.

 

Then there are those who believe that the Constitution was written the way it was for some very good and real reasons and the Electoral College is what actually chooses the President, not the popular vote. Most understand that the Electoral College was designed so that every state had a more equal representation no matter its size or population. Without this, the United States would become represented by the major cities and the rural vote and states would never have much of a say except for in the Senate. Imagine the nation if it was run completely from the top cities by population listed below.

1) New York
2) Los Angeles
3) Chicago
4) Houston
5) Phoenix
6) Philadelphia
7) San Antonio
8) San Diego
9) Dallas
10) San Jose
11) Austin
12) Jacksonville
13) San Francisco
14) Columbus
15) Indianapolis

 

Bridging the Right-Left gap is folly in the extreme. The left does not desire any compromises any longer. They simply desire one thing, complete control and nothing less. This game has been played before and those who know history understand what has started. It starts with claims of stolen elections or crimes against the state by government agents and other claims of unfair treatment or being cheated from their rightful positions of power, as long as the eventual end result is their having unrestricted and uncontested power. They use protests leading to riots and unrest and eventually the government will try and establish order which will fail. The more the government attempts to establish order the more the leftists will raise a ruckus. Eventually, there will be a savior who offers to end the unrest. They may come disguised as somebody from the right or perhaps honestly from the left but always promising to reestablish order. Once the left retakes power it is over and the leaders of the protests and violence call off their attacks. There will be those who have learned to love the violence and will continue, feel very sorry for those few remaining rioters and disruptors, as they cannot be tolerated once the left takes their presumed rightful place. They were given a name by Joseph Stalin, useful idiots. They are more of a bunch of sacrificial lambs who must be offered up for the sake of power. Power is the only thing what matters, always has been and always will be.

 

The one thing people need remember, liberals and left-wingers are not leftists. Leftists are the fanatical fringe whose ideology is less important than having and holding power. Once they have power, then things can progress peaceably. They thought they had gained power permanently after President Obama was reelected. They ignored their losing election after election in state after state. They believed that Hillary Clinton had to win simply because they had the winning idea, the first woman President. This had to work just as they used the idea of the first black President and President Obama rode that to two elections. They just knew that Hillary would win the next two elections and after eight more years, there would be nothing left of the Republican Party and the leftists would rule forever. Hillary would implement the remainder of their programs just as President Obama had done regardless of the Congress. President Hillary Clinton would simply issue Executive Orders to establish things and they would have the many separate government bureaucracies simply enact new regulations to complete their coup and that would be the end of the republic and end the need for elections. This was going to be their swan-song which was going to establish their Utopian and eternal governance. Something went wrong with the plan. The people of the United States had to have made an unforgivable mistake. They could not have elected somebody as abhorrent and detestable as Donald Trump. They had gotten their perfect Republican candidate, a non-politician who was not liked and immoral. The religious right would not be able to vote for such a person and without them, then Hillary would waltz into the White House. Now that this has happened and the plan is unraveling with President Trump ready to undo everything they had accomplished, the leftists cannot let this stand. This was it and now it has all gone awry. This was it and they are willing to destroy it all if that is what it takes to win and establish their utopia. Of course, their utopia is for the select few, but don’t tell the useful idiots that they are not included, they will not believe you. They are the true believers and will believe that even their sacrifice will have been for the cause and that is just as it should be. They might wake up some day, but not today or any day too soon. If they wake up it will be too late for them but maybe they can teach those who follow what freedom was and that it is worth fighting to regain. But the reality is, should freedom be lost now it will not come back ever for this generation and is unlikely for the next generation but if the generation after that can make it, that would be the start of the cycle again.

There is a Disease Within American Jewry

 

American Jewry is four-fifths Liberal-Leftist, three-twentieths Conservative and one-twentieth undefined independents. This was proven not with the initial first election of Barack Obama but the around three-quarters of American Jewry who actively voted and supported President Obama’s reelection. These were Jews who supported a candidate purely along political lines. The fact that President Obama in his first term proved beyond any doubt that he was virulently anti-Israel, was anti-Semitic, and was working to destroy the United States and arm Iran to be capable of threatening every other power in the world in time, and he was making that time far shorter. President Obama had in his first term proven to love Shia Islam, prefer any Islam over the Democratic West, regarded the West as weak and vulnerable and knew that if he could cripple the United States, then Islam would triumph. He did realize the best he was able to do was weaken the United States and that he would require followers to finish the destruction of America. Not to worry, the next election was all sewn-up; America was primed to elect their first woman as President. Well, almost. The Democrats chose the wrong woman. Almost any other Democrat woman would have won, even Nancy Pelosi and especially Elizabeth Warren, anyone but Hillary. Yes, even a dragon might have won over Donald Trump. One must remember that the Republican candidate was Donald Trump, not exactly a mainstream pick. Given the choices in our image below, we believe even, or especially, the candidate pictured at the bottom could have defeated Donald Trump, especially if there are debates. Kidding aside, about the only two candidates who would have given Donald Trump the easy path to the Oval Office are Hillary and Pelosi, the rest would likely have easily defeated Trump. Even Nancy Pelosi might have won, as it was the corruption of Hillary Clinton which sank her, but not the corruption alone. Beyond just the corruption was the weaseling and prevaricating that Hillary Clinton displayed, there was jumping from one excuse to the next as soon as any weakness appeared in the previous excuse always attempting to remain one reason, one explanation, one excuse ahead of failure and being caught. It was not so much the excuses as the paranoia with the complete lack of reason which was too similar to the lies and runaround with lies to hide the truth from the death of Ambassador Stevens, aide Sean Smith, and security officers and former Navy Seals Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty in the Benghazi terror attack which came unpleasantly immediately before the election for President Obama’s second term. The excuses and diversionary tactics during the final drive of the Obama campaign was too closely imitated by Hillary Clinton’s attempt to handle the e-mail server scandal, her part in Benghazi and any other detracting events which included fainting spells, repeated lying, avoidance issues plus her apparent fear of appearing in public except in controlled events with vetted attendees. Hillary Clinton was avoiding the public while Donald Trump was wallowing in the public adoration or jeering, he ate it all up apparently loving almost every moment of it. Still, polling of American Jews revealed close to 80% support for Hillary Clinton and even higher polling numbers believing that Donald Trump was anti-Semitic and anti-Israel. Trying to tell fellow congregants that the exact opposite was the reality was a great way to always have lots of space between you and the others at services and plenty of freedom reaching the hors d’oeuvres.

 

Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren or a Dragon, Tough Choice

Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren or a Dragon, Tough Choice

 

The American Jewish population is overwhelmingly liberal or leftist and registered as Democrats or Green Party. The remainders are split between Libertarian Party, Independent, not registered and actually some Republicans and a few other strays in other parties. This has made it extremely unlikely for any Republican candidate for President breaking 30% of the Jewish vote since General Eisenhower. Richard Nixon managed it in his run for his second term while Ronald Reagan managed it in both runs plus George H. W. Bush in his first term and Romney hit exactly the 30% mark. Obviously, the Democrat candidates for the Presidency can rely on receiving well over half of the Jewish vote, second only to their vote percentages in the inner-city Blacks. These are probably the most reliable voting blocks in the Democrat bag. This is not true throughout American history as before 1900 the Jewish vote went predominantly for Republican candidates starting with Abraham Lincoln. Records going back before that were not found. Where the percentages for Jews lining up on the democrat side of the ledger appeared to average between 65% and 72.5% average depending on the period of the Twentieth Century is chosen and easily continued thus far into the Twenty-First Century and has no hints of changing but for the fact that the one thing one must always expect is that over time things change.

 

What has been unexplainable about the elections in the new century has been the complete lack of concern by the majority of the Jewish voters for what is presumed by many to be their most important of issues, support for Israel or even their second most important issue, whether candidates have a history of anti-Semitism. Everything else was presumed to be fluff according to the historic polling and thus relegated to the inconsequential. These assumptions died if not in the initial election of Barack Hussein Obama, definitively in his reelection though the numbers do reveal some concern for these two presumed main issues for Jews. There had been numerous mentions of suspicions as to potential anti-Semitic feelings with his attending services at the church of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. When additionally it was reported that Barack Obama had claimed that the Reverend Jeremiah Wright was like a father and was his mentor as well as had performed the marriage ceremony between Barack Obama and Michelle LaVaughn Robinson and that he was friends with Rashid Khalidi and even gave the speech at the party given in Los Angeles when Rashid Khalidi was moving to a new position. Further, there were reports of Barack Obama attending events honoring Louis Farrakhan as well as having had a private meeting with him. All of this made a pressing impression that Barack Obama very probably had less than acceptable feelings towards Jews and even stronger evidence of his potential to work against Israeli interests. By the end of President Obama’s first term, his view of Israel and determination to work for her demise had become unavoidable to anyone who was paying even the slightest attention. Still President Obama received approximately 70% of the Jewish vote according to polling in his second term election. The evidence for Hillary Clinton was beyond that for even President Obama to the point that Israeli supporters would refer to the evidence as definitive. Still, American Jews voted beyond 70% for Hillary Clinton in her run against Donald Trump. There is no explanation for the voting habits of American Jews except that they will vote for the perceived most leftist and liberal candidate regardless of all other considerations. That is it, plain and simple, American Jews will vote at a minimal rate 70% for the left most major candidate which currently means they will vote regardless of all else for Democrat candidates.

 

Then there is the good news, the American Jewish votes are definitive in determining the actual results of any single state in exactly zero states. That is correct; they are a definitive block of votes absolutely nowhere in a Presidential election, period. The greatest influences by state from top to bottom are listed here. The top ten with percentages are:

5.86% New Jersey
4.25% District of Columbia
4.07% Massachusetts
3.99% Maryland
3.28% Connecticut
3.28% Florida
3.18% California
2.69% Nevada
2.31% Illinois
2.29% Pennsylvania

 

As is rather obvious, the Jewish influence on Election Day is minimal at best and at the bottom, South Dakota at an overpowering 0.03% is absolutely inconsequential. This makes the media’s obsession with the support of the Jews in elections is completely out of all proportions. There are few if any states where the Jewish vote could ever influence with the only real potential being New Jersey, Florida, Nevada or Pennsylvania. And really, what are the odds that the small percentage of Jews would be the deciding factor in any of even these states, statistically next to nothing (see map below). Still, we hear incessantly about the Jewish vote as if it really mattered. Why?

 

Percentage of Jewish Population of the United States by County 2000

Percentage of Jewish Population of the United States by County 2000

 

So, the truth is out. The main influence that Jews have on elections is, at best, two fold, money and planning. Believe it or not, that is the good news for them for now, but not for long. There is a new self-interest now entering or soon to enter the political scenes across the developed world as this interest has designs on controlling the developed world. This interest is the Islamic peoples, or at least their leadership, both of them. The real interesting thing is that there are two distinct and rivaling major leaderships in the Islamic world, the Sunni and the Shiite. The Shiite is less complicated as it is led by Iran uncontested. The Sunni are more complicated as there are numerous nodal points of power, Saudi Arabia is the most obvious, Egypt and Turkey are another pair and then there are the numerous terrorist such as al-Qaeda, Hamas, Palestinian Authority and Islamic State to name a few. Their money will make the Jewish money pale by comparison, and this is already starting within the Democrat Party in the United States. The British Labor Party has been coopted and if we were to look around the remainder of Europe, we would most certainly find other parties being influenced. These infiltrations are not at the national stage as of yet, but in the Islamic dominated neighborhoods and with some of their sympathetic leadership who choose to ally with them, possibly in the hopes of gaining power. Whatever the influence of the Islamic interests now, their influence is increasing and will continue to grow and there is little which any other influences will be able to do in time. Politics in much of the developed world runs on two major items, funding and ideals. The problem is for too many the ideals are overly malleable and thus influenced by the money or the promise of future power or a crucial voting block. Whatever their promises now, they will disappear or have a very strict demand coming in the future. For those taking the offered reward now, I hope they will enjoy being a good Muslim and meeting the pillars of Islam, there are worse things in life.

 

Politics is changing and the electorates are changing, and the two are not heading in the same direction in every country. The speed with which the changes will take place will also vary but will inexorably progress. What this will mean will depend on more variables than we could even begin to cover or even explain how they might intersect. The two main influences can be described and their intersection point will be of paramount importance. One is the progress Islam manages to make with its inroads into the political structures of the developed world. It will also matter on the extent of their influence and whether they eventually control many or, as in some cases, both major parties in nations such that it will not matter who wins elections and make new parliaments or are elected President or Prime Minister. Their rise to take power and how they will utilize their newfound power will matter. The other matter is Islam itself. Islam is facing a critical juncture which most do not even see coming but is coming just the same. There are leaders in this effort, most we in the western world do not know by name but we should be glad that they are working to improve the world and Islam along with that world. President Sisi may be among, if not, the most notable, and has already stuck his head out while speaking at Al-Azhar University imploring that they teach a more flexible version of Islam which is capable of existing alongside other religions and no longer expecting to conquer and rule the world. He has implored them to teach more from the Mecca Quran and minimize the Medina Quran, the differences which we gave a small introductory article which many readers have added their own links with much more and interesting information. The future is full of unknowns of which some very important particulars include, or even crucially depend, on Islam. That is what will make the world continue to be of interest and continue to give us all the more to write and discuss.

Countdown to Impeachment

 

President Trump just made another major misstep; he failed to fight for his health care legislation empowering his enemies. Sure the media have been playing up each and every Tweet as if it were the crime of the century, but that has been hype, all hype. That is the job the media has in this attempt to overthrow democratically elected governance in the United States. The media are the shock troops playing the game as those infected with the screaming heebie jeebies. Their job is to foment the atmosphere of mistrust, suspicion and general mayhem so that anything which follows appears to have validity. When President Trump pulled the healthcare legislation admitting defeat, he opened the door to his downfall. His blaming the Democrats will only serve to instill in them more hate and spite leading them to become even more entrenched seeking his downfall. They were going to head in this direction anyways and this was inevitable, but now they will feel empowered and capable of blocking any and all attempts by the President to govern effectively. That always was the first step, take out President Trump’s ability to govern effectively.

 

The next step is already in motion and is being headed by the leading man of the disloyal progressive opposition, Senator McCain. McCain still believes he should be the leading figure in the Republican Party and has always felt they let him down and were the reason he lost in 2008. It has never occurred to him that the reason he lost in 2008 was that John McCain was completely outclassed and defeated by the media and his complete inability to excite the Republican base. John McCain actually believes he is a staunch and true conservative just because he opposes three or four extreme leftist ideas and otherwise is just as left wing as Hillary Clinton once those few ideas are removed from the equation. John McCain sees the election of Donald Trump not as a sign that he actually earned the election by getting the Republican base excited but because he got exactly who the media claim elected him, rabble and uneducated morons easily led off by Donald the Pied Piper Trump. McCain sees his position of fighting Trump as the Republican knight in shining armor saving the party from oblivion. McCain just cannot accept that his wing of Republicans are the lost sheep with nowhere to go and unable to ever win any national election and that the Republican Party has become truly conservative and originalist in their holding and understanding of the Constitution. The mainstream Republicans are now almost literally Tea Party Republicans who enforce the Constitution and its Amendments precisely as written to save the United States because anything less will allow the Progressives their eventual victory and the end of America. It matters not if that view is valid, it is where the base and the votes lie and McCain will never excite these people and they would rather stay home than vote for a phony conservative, a right leaning progressive.

 

So, now that the Democrats have been placed in the position of defending Obamacare which they see as the logical step to destroy heath care insurance and force single payer government healthcare as the saving grace along with the rest of their progressive pro-government programs which will lead to only one conclusion, they will rally and draw even tighter and any Democrat who was even considering not standing with the most radical of their party will be put on notice, stand with us or you will face defeat in the next primary election. The Democrats see the election of Donald Trump as their now or never position as they know that their cover has been blown and the “silent majority” has seen them for who they truly are. What is so sad is that many of their supporters still have their blinders in place and do not realize these monsters for who they really are. They still view the likes of Elizabeth Warren, Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters and the rest for loyal liberals fighting the good fight for the cause. If only this were true, there would be hope; but a full third to forty percent of the voting public are firmly supporting the people who wish to place government as the board of directors over every major employer and while leaving private ownership and the belief that freedom exists, their reality would have government dictating almost everything even to production demands and buying habits to government through over-regulation to simple direct control. The Democrats who have taken control of the Democrat Party are full behind this central control and have the voters fully behind their ideas and reasoning which include such fronts as Global Climate Change, Corporate Greed is Evil, the Police are Fascist Shock Troops and the like. The Police are Fascist Shock Troops actually is one of the most ridiculous of these claims as it was under President Obama that enormous amounts of military vehicles and hardware were transferred to police forces across the United States at prices that I could have afforded one of those heavy armored vehicles that the police have at their disposal had I been permitted to purchase one and likely you could have as well. These were priced just slightly more expensive than two squad cars and were heavily financed by the Federal Government making even Mayberry Police able to buy one for officer Fife (there’s a joke there if you are old enough to remember Barney Fife and his bullet in his pocket so he wouldn’t shoot his foot again).

 

The plan is to continue to play hardball and allow John McCain to run interference on the right and when sufficient Republicans are convinced that Trump is simply incompetent and unable to accomplish anything, then they will strike. The claim will be he is and always was a phony businessman and never built anything in his life, accomplishing everything with his Daddy’s money and name. They will play up the incompetency of his presidency and that the nation deserves better. There will be moves to paint Pence and Ryan as well as people unable to rule effectively as they are just as bad as Trump. The entire idea is to get sufficient numbers of the population, 15% to 20% is all it takes with all centered in the major cities, believing that the only path to good and steady leadership is the Democrat Party, the moderate Democrats who even John McCain claims can be reasoned with and worked with. The entire Republican Party leadership and most of its truly conservative base Representatives and Senators will all be painted as subversive elements who are trying to destroy the nation supporting this losing child-President Trump. Then there will be the placing of the impeachment charges which will be all formal and will find an actual plausible reason, one the rabble can latch onto as a cause celeb. Once the votes are secured, the charge is irrelevant as in order to impeach a President you only need the votes in the House of Representatives and then to remove the President you need the votes in the Senate. The Constitution lays out the reasons of which one is malfeasance or the ill-defined “high crimes and misdemeanors” which could include anything from impropriety to murder to tax evasion to jaywalking, it all depends on what the media can sell and sufficient numbers of people accept. Understand that once charges of impeachment have been leveled against President Trump we can expect that the opposition will have the votes necessary with a comfortable extra few in numbers in case some get cold feet and shrink from the idea. The idea will be to have governance handed to those adults in the room who know how to govern and in order to prevent such a disaster as another President Trump from ever occurring again, the Electoral College will be thrown out along with all the other parts of an obsolete and useless piece of parchment that the Constitution has become, after all it was written by angry, old, slave owning, anti-woman, white men who did not understand what the world has become, after all they probably thought man should not fly because they do not have wings and such things. They had muzzle loading rifles, what could they have understood about machineguns? They are as outdated as powdered wigs and their Constitution; it’s the Twenty-First Century already, time to modernize America. The new rallying cry will be something just like that, Time to Modernize America for the Modern Times. With this they will restructure governance in the United States and America will be born and the entire concept of the United States as individual states in a federal government will die and Europe will welcome the new America to their failing ways which are failing as we were watching and will then be joining. You will know the fix is in should the new form of government be parliamentary.

 

Big Brother is Watching

 

The push is coming to make America a nation run by its major cities under Democrat Party control with the rest of the nation dragged along for the ride. The name bandied around and used against President Trump will never be applied to the new America as they could never be fascist, even if fascism is defined as the government taking control of the steering wheel and dictating to industry and big businesses how they can and will run their companies while permitting private ownership. The new government will rule absolutely not permitting even a scintilla of opposition to their ideas and demands on the people. Forget freedom as that is such an antiquated and quaint idea which does not permit the government to do what is right and correct for the people. The people are not as wise and worldly as are their betters in the government who all went to the correct schools and majored in how to rule over a nation. What could the peasants possibly know about how to run a successful country with the responsibility for directing all the industrial and managerial giants and be so astute to every nuanced concept; after all it was exactly this which brought every advancement since the bicycle. There will be posters and they will be Yuge and Wondrous and everybody will feel like saluting the posters, after all that is what the man on the corner with the big gun expects and we would not want him reporting our lack of enthusiasm. The poster, if it were honest, would look a lot like the one above, admit it, you wanted to straighten up in your seat and look good as if the poster was looking back through your monitor, didn’t you. Don’t let little slogans bother you because as long as you’re a good citizen, do your assigned job, oh yes, that’s right, the job your chose or were chosen for from first grade, and as long as you are happy, then you have nothing to fear. And just to make this Brave New World be a little happier, you did take your allotment of Soma today, we would not want to skip our Soma after work, after all it is for the nation to keep and stay happy. There you go, be a happy citizen.
