The coming Trumpslide

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

Wiccapundit –

All of the “conservative” commentariat will be remarking in November that they TOTES knew that Trump was going to beat Hillary.  This reminds me of the scene in the movie “Stripes” where Bill Murray responds to his girlfriend’s complaint about him listening to his “stupid Tito Puente albums ’till two in the morning.”  Murray responds: “Tito Puente is going to be dead, and you’re going to say ‘Oh, I’ve been listening to him for years, and I think he’s fabuluous.’ ”  It’s always easier to call the batter out AFTER he’s fanned on three fastballs and he’s slouching back to the dugout.

Accordingly, I’m going to call the 2016 Presidential election right here, right now.  This is going to be an epic thumping, with Trump the thumper and Clinton the thumpee.  I’m not going to prognosticate what “path to the Presidency” Trump has, or where he will get the necessary electoral votes, or what the popular vote totals will be, or what states are “battleground” states, or trending blue or red or purple, or whatever hash Nate Silver, the 538 crowd, and the usual talking heads are blathering about.

This election is unlike previous elections.  The traditional wisdom – which has never been all that wise – does not apply here.

Reason 1:

Trump will NEVER run for President!

Okay, he’s actually running, but he’s not serious about it!

Okay, he’s serious, but he’ll get his ass kicked in the first debate!

Okay, he did well in the first debate, but that was just a fluke!

Okay, it wasn’t a fluke, but he can’t win any other debates!

Okay, he’s winning debates, but he’ll get crushed in the caucuses!

Okay, he did well in the caucuses, but he’ll NEVER win an actual primary!

Okay, so he won a primary, but he’ll NEVER win any others!

Okay, so he’s won some primaries in small Northeastern states, but he’ll NEVER win a primary in the South!

Okay, so he can win a primary in the South, but he’ll get obliterated on Super Tuesday!

Okay, so he pretty much ran the table on Super Tuesday, but he’ll never get enough delegates to win at the convention on the first ballot! Brokered convention, woo-hoo!

Okay, so he’s got the total delegates to be the “presumptive” nominee, but Cruz’s ground game and the NeverTrumpers will wreck him in the Rules Committee! Brokered convention, woo-hoo!

Okay, so the NeverTrump movement got pwned in the Rules Committee and sputtered out like a wet fart in a hurricane, but Trump is going to be flattened by Hillary in the general election!

Starting to see a trend with the “conventional wisdom?”  None of these assholes has the first clue about what is happening here.

Reason 2:

Hillary sucks nine kinds of ass as a retail politician.  She was at the side of one of the most gifted grifters political operators of the modern age for YEARS, and she apparently learned NOTHING.  She’s like that crazy aunt that comes to the family reunion and regales everyone with off-kilter jokes too loud, while everybody tries to find a way to escape to the buffet table.

Result:

Electoral landslide for Trump. Popular vote win for Trump. Republicans keep the House and Senate, setting up the Trumpocalypse.

You heard it here (almost) first, folks.  Unless I’m wrong, in which case this post will disappear down the memory hole, because that’s how we roll in the Brave New World of modern journalism.

Trumplander – There Can Be Only One

Monday, February 15th, 2016

– Wiccapundit

First political post of the New and Improved™ Red State Witch: The Trumpal Wave, Trumpnami, The Trumpening, Trumpenkrieg, etc.

If The Donald wins the Republican nomination for President, cuckservative pundits say that it will be the end of the Republican “brand.”  They say that like it is a bug, and not a feature, of his campaign.  Whether Trump is elected President, or whether he is any good at it (as if Barry Soetoro hadn’t already set THAT bar pretty low), it will be the end of the Republican Party as we have known it.  That would be a good thing.

If Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic nomination, he will destroy the Democrat Party for the foreseeable future.  That is a good thing.  Even if he (improbably) won the Presidency, he would preside over the collapse of the American Imperium, doing incalculable damage to the Democrat Party.  Win -Win.

What say y’all?

Jimmy Carter’s enduring failure.

Monday, February 10th, 2014

– Wiccapundit

How many of us remember a time when the United States did not have a Cabinet-level Department of Energy?  Does anyone remember why it was established?

In 1977, with 40.5 % of U.S. crude oil supplied from foreign sources, Jimmy Carter announced the creation of the DOE with the statement: “Beginning this moment, this nation will never use more foreign oil than we did in 1977 – never.”

As of 2014, nearly 37 years after its creation, with 16,000+ employees and an annual budget north of $30 billion, the DOE produces exactly nothing in the way of energy.   More than 61% of U.S. crude oil comes from foreign sources.   The DOE has been a complete and utter failure at the one thing it was created to do –  reduce our reliance on foreign crude oil.

And these are the people that want to be in control of the provision of your health care.

Thanks, Jimmy.

Meat Parade

Friday, November 15th, 2013

– Wiccapundit

Jeez, it appears that every organization established for honoring actual achievement has become what George C. Scott referred to the Oscars™ as: “a meat parade.”

Exhibit 1:

Yep.  Fucking Al Gore.   For that Global Warming Scam that he’s made beaucoup bank off of.

Exhibit # 2:

Some current nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame:

Yes, Deep Purple, and Link Wray (the inventor of the fuckin’ POWER CHORD, the cornerstone of rock guitar), which means these artists are currently NOT in the Hall of Fame.

Some past inductees:

Ahmet Ertegun (Founder of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.   Ohhh, I get it.)

Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five (I yield to no one in my enjoyment of “The Message,” GF&TFF’s seminal rap hit.  But …, they are a rap groupRap.   Should Led Zeppelin be nominated for a Rap Industry Award?  In 2007, Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner used a technicality on the vote dating procedure to deny induction to The Dave Clark Five, because he felt the Hall couldn’t go another year without inducting a rap act.  Starting to see how things work here?)

Madonna (Oh for fuck’s sake.)

Bill Monroe (I loves me some Bill Monroe, but he was a bluegrass player, not a rock n’ roller, despite being called an “Early Influence”™ by the Hall of Fame panjandrums.)

Jelly Roll Morton (Seriously?  The self-proclaimed inventor of jazz?)

Notables who are NOT in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame:

Chicago (A rock band with a horn section, with a guitarist  – Terry Kath – that Jimi Hendrix considered way better than himself.  Think about that for a moment.)

Grand Funk Railroad (WTF?  Can you say The Red Album, people?  The group that sold out Shea Stadium quicker than the Beatles did?  You’re killing me here.)

Iron Butterfly (In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, baby.  Who didn’t get stoned in the 70’s listening to this?)

Robin Trower (Too Rolling Stoned, Bridge of Sighs, and on and on … .)

I’m done with all this.  Any organization that would give me an award is not one I respect enough to accept an award from.

The Sex Pistols refused to attend when inducted, calling the museum “a piss stain.” That’s the rock n’ roll attitude, my friends.

Madonna. Sheesh.

My Obama criticism: Will I be banned for life?

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

– Wiccapundit

A rodeo clown in Missouri who made fun of King Barack the Thin-Skinned has been banned for life from performing in Missouri.

Really?  What was that dusty old First-Something-Or-Other we used to believe in?

Oh yeah.  First Amendment.  Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Here’s my two cents.  Barack (Barry) Hussein (Soetoro) Obama is a pusillanimous pisspot, a narcissicistic child, a tinpot dictator with delusions of godhood (h/t Star Trek, The Original Series; episode: The Trouble With Tribbles), an incompetent Peter Principle putz, an Affirmative Action asswipe with no discernible talent other than persuading guilty white liberals to feel good about themselves by voting the decline of the United States into actual fact.

Is that enough to get me banned for life?

Damn, it’s hard to get the attention of the Elites™.

Fuck you Barry and the donkey (ass) you rode into town on.

Support Tuffy Gesling!

I will accept the rules that you feel necessary to your freedom. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

Flood the NSA with irrelevant information

How should ordinary Americans render the NSA snooping completely worthless?  Funny or Die has the answer:

By the way, Fuck the NSA.
