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.


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.


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!


Hey! He can’t say that, can he?

“PSY” is Korean for “jackass”

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

– Wiccapundit

The seemingly soft and unthreatening Korean K-pop rapper PSY, who has gotten millions of people to dance in a stupid fashion to his catchy “song” Gangnam Style, is actually virulently anti-American, as evidenced by the lyrics to a song by South Korean rock band N.E.X.T. that he sang in a 2004 concert:

Kill those fucking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives

Kill those fucking Yankees who ordered them to torture

Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers

Kill them all slowly and painfully

He is, of course, trying to sanitize his past history in order to enjoy the fruits of his current world adulation.  One sign of the impending Apocalypse?  That over 900,000,000 million views of his video have been recorded on YouTube.  Compare: the 1958 performance of Beethoven’s masterful Ninth Symphony, performed by the Berlin Philharmonic under the direction of Herbert von Karajan (the gold standard for this piece) and including an in-her-prime Leontyne Price singing soprano: 59,000 views.  Seriously? WTF?

Hey PSY, here’s a little statistic for you: over 33,000 “fucking Yankee” soldiers died to prevent the country you were born in from becoming the same Marxist “People’s” shithole that North Korea has become.  This happened before you were even a randy gleam in your daddy’s eye, which you seem not to know as apparently you have never studied Korean history.  Had Americans not died to protect the sovereignty of South Korea, you would have grown up in a regime that has created such widespread starvation among its people that malnutrition has caused the average North Korean to be between 1 and 3 inches shorter than the average South Korean.  In the late 1990’s, North Korea experienced a famine that caused upwards of 3,500,000 people to die of starvation, out of a population of about 22 million.  When 15% of your population dies from state-induced lack of food, what do you do?  Why, you give it a pithy name: “the Arduous March.”  Man, those Commies have a catchy phrase for everything.

If you had grown up under conditions like those that exist today in North Korea, you would not be “rapping” for a high-bling living, you would be laboring in a prison camp and eating your stolen pork raw so the guards wouldn’t catch you cooking it and beat the crap out of you.  Your fame consists entirely of creating a catchy song paired with a silly dance, which makes you something of a one-hit wonder.   Even the Hokey Pokey (which by the way was written in 1857) is a catchy song with a silly dance.  People are still singing and performing that song and dance today.  Do you think anyone will be doing the Gangnam Style dance in six months?  Can you say “Hey, Macarena?”

Bonus add-on:  President Obama and Michelle, despite the controversy over PSY’s ugly past, will nonetheless still attend his Christmas performance.  The President had a great opportunity to engage in a Clintonesque “Sister Souljah” moment, demonstrating his leadership qualities and racking up some props even from conservative commentators, who would have undoubtedly (if grudgingly) given him a thumbs-up for doing the right thing and distancing himself from anti-American sentiment.  That was a high-hanging PR curveball and the President completely whiffed it.  But he is, after all, The Smartest President EVAH.™


Whither the Republic

Quick thoughts on the fiasco:

Those who voted for four more years of this will get exactly what they want, and what they deserve.  Unfortunately, we will be riding the downside shit roller-coaster with them.  Also, they will never learn from the consequences of their actions.  By voting the way they did, by definition they are incapable of understanding cause-and-effect.

My Tarot reading was completely FNORD.  Note to self: do not do divination for self when you are seriously interested in the outcome.  “Expectation bias” was in full play, and my reading was just as far off as it was four years ago.  (Perhaps I should do divination in the stock market and buy the opposite of everything I think I should – I’d make a fortune.)

It’s going to get ugly.

What are the alternatives?  Go Galt?  Hunker down and follow Harry Browne’s “How I Found Freedom In An Unfree World?”  Gird the loins and re-enter the fray to fight for what we believe in?   All or some of the above?

What are your thoughts, dear readers?


Here’s my call …

Romney 321, Obama 217.  Click on the link to see my take on the interactive map.

I think Illinois will be close, but for Obama.  Romney will make it a close one in Pennsylvania, but I think Obama edges him there.  Harry Reid’s machine in Nevada will push that state into Obama’s column, despite Romney’s good numbers there.  But I think Romney takes Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Ohio.

Of course, your mileage may vary.

Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix.  Roman general and statesman.

His epitaph reads: “No friend ever served me, and no enemy ever wronged me, whom I have not repaid in full.”  I humbly suggest that tomorrow, the American electorate will repay Barack Hussein Obama in full.  He will lose in a landslide, the Republicans will pick up House seats, and will take control of the Senate.  To quote Yul Brynner in The Ten Commandments: “So let it be written.  So let it be done.”



Please, please, let it be so…

A journalist sees the light and has the courage to speak the truth

CBS correspondent Lara Logan recently spoke at the Better Government Association luncheon.

Money quote #1 comes at 12:39:

Our way of life is under attack, and if you think that’s government propaganda, if you think that’s nonsense, if you think that’s warmongering; you’re not listening to what the people who are fighting you say about this fight. In your arrogance, you think that you write the script, but you don’t.

Money quote #2 comes at 17:52:

If you fail to identify the the ideological component to this fight; if you fail to identify what your enemy is really fighting for; if you lie about who they really are; I don’t see how you can possibly have the right strategy.

It’s twenty minutes, and worth every bit of your time to watch it.  Make sure that this is seen by everyone you know.  It’s that important.

Russian ships displayed at DNC tribute to vets

On the last night of the Democratic National Convention, a retired Navy four-star took the stage to pay tribute to veterans. Behind him, on a giant screen, the image of four hulking warships reinforced his patriotic message.

But there was a big mistake in the stirring backdrop: those are Russian warships.

Gee, I guess to the Democrat staffers in charge of A/V production, a ship is a ship is a ship.  What’s the diff?  Only the radars, the hulls, and the flags flying at their sterns.  Who cares?  They support the troops, doncha know.  Except when they don’t.
