Brennan and the Collapse of America

John Brennan Tweeted out an announcement of his forthcoming book. My response to that was to Tweet:

John, you are precisely the sort of person who has f***ed everything up for the past 75 years.

Leaving aside his clear role in trying to destroy President Trump, the fact remains that Brennan spent 25 years at CIA, often in the top reaches with access to the President (he was Clinton’s daily briefer). He was there, possessing the data and offering the advice for decades, winding up as Obama’s CIA director. So, when people like President Clinton, President Bush and President Obama said they were relying on “advice”, Brennan was that “advice.” The President gets to make the final call, of course, but only between options provided by the guys giving the advice. In reality, permanent bureaucrats like Brennan are the people who behind the scenes run our country.

How’s that been working out?

It is a rare leader who can get the bureaucracy to do anything it doesn’t want to do. Now, to be sure, most people who rise to the top in politics are part of the team: there really isn’t much friction between a President or Prime Minister and the permanent staff. Most of the time, they are on the same page…but in those rare instances where the boss wants something that the bureaucracy doesn’t, the bureaucracy comes out on top. This is usually be delay: back-burner it until the boss losses interest. To force a bureaucracy to move, you must pester it.

Churchill was like that: he was forever simply calling up the bureaucrats or sending them notes demanding to know the status of the order he gave. Eventually, just to get him off their back, they’d do as ordered. As for President Trump, he is only just now getting a measure of control over the bureaucracy. Even more so than Churchill, Trump is the outsider and he’s got a whole bunch of plans the bureaucracy opposes. Even absent the partisan angle, they’d be fighting him tooth and nail. That the bureaucracy is largely made up of hyper-partisan Democrats just makes the battle more intense.

And Trump’s fight here is crucial to the future of the United States: we must excise the Brennans. They simply have to go. Not because they’re partisan Democrats. Not even because they are corrupt. They have to go because they are no good. They suck. They are lousy at their jobs. They don’t really understand anything. Brennan has a degree in Political Science and a Masters in Government. There is, of course, no science in politics and what the heck is a Master of Government? What, exactly, have you learned? I don’t know: but the output of people with such degrees is pretty bad. Our government and military is littered with people with degrees in political science and government and what we get are the Department of Education and military plans which send guys to fight terrorists and then charge them with war crimes when they kill terrorists.

This doesn’t seem to be an ideal situation.

Right now, as we’ve all seen, just about every poll shows Biden in a walkover. Even Rasmussen has Biden up big (though, unlike the rest of the pollsters, Rasmussen is quick to point out that at this exact time in 2016 they had Hillary up big). I’m still getting voter registration data and VBM return data which indicates great strength for Trump out there. Add to that the spontaneous demonstrations in favor of Trump and we look at the polls and then file them away. But win or lose, the key thing for us is to get after and get rid of the Brennans in our government. If we have to fire everyone and start over, we can’t refuse the duty. We can’t persist as a free nation if our bureaucracy is both incompetent and corrupt.

These people took a United States in 1945 from the pinnacle of power to a debtor nation which is dependent upon Chinese tyrants for its manufactured goods. Not only that, but because we have become economically dependent upon foreign tyrants, these tyrants are more and more calling the tune in the United States. For fear of losing money in China, corporation after corporation toes the Chinese line…and because the tyrants have money, ever more Americans are willing to tailor their public actions to suit Chinese desires. Either these people go, or the United States goes.

I expect Trump to win on November 3rd. That will be great – but even four more years of Trump won’t do what we need. We need twenty or thirty years of power to reform this nation from top to bottom, and our problem is to figure out how to get that.

    In 2016 I fully expected Hillary to win but my son believed Trump would and would show me the social media stats which at the time I dismissed. He kept showing me the number of likes each candidate received, Hillary would post something and would get maybe 4,000 likes, Trump would post something and he would get 100,000 likes and my son said this was proof Trump would win.

    Well this time around I am paying attention to those numbers as everyone should because those are the real polls. CSPAN did an on line poll the other day and there were nearly 300,000 respondents … Trump won 87%. Telemundo did an online poll after the first debate with nearly 100,000 respondents and Trump won 67%. When Trump posts something, he has over 100,000 likes in less than an hour. When Biden posts something, he may get 3,000 likes after 10 hours.

    Trump has been on a 24-hour Twitter frenzy calling for the Justice Department to arrest/jail his political enemies and grousing at AG Barr. It’s been extraordinary even by Trumpian standards.

      My Dish Network receiver was on the fritz so I missed the first half hour of the debate, but it looked like all I missed was the Smirk-O-Rama of Kamala Harris and some of the very very biased questions of Susan Page.

      Evidently Republicans are crazy, if the definition of insane is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. How many times do we have to have debates “moderated” by partisans before we stop doing this? Page pulled the same crap Wallace did, claiming things are proven facts and then throwing them in the Republican’s face. She even recycled a couple of Wallace efforts, like the wildfires, which she came right out and claimed are due to global warming. And she claimed Trump has repeatedly refused to agree to “a peaceful transition”. Once again, the Republican was put in the position of having to debate the moderator.

      I think Harris tried really hard to tone down her radical persona, and am not sure if she did a good enough job. All I could think during this was that someone—-SOMEONE—has to start using the L word when addressing the stuff she and Biden say. Pence was too goody-goody. He needed to just come right out and say “That was a lie, Kamala”. He did get in the challenge on stacking the Court, and pushed her hard and pointed out that she didn’t answer. I liked the way he handled that. He did get her on her prosecutorial record, but she was ready for that and had a rebuttal that didn’t deny what he said but let her get all “how DARE you!”.

      It’s now time to hit them with a list of the lies. And calling them lies. It’s a pretty long list.

      Harris has good camera presence and obviously had some good professional coaching, but even so I think her smirking got really old.

        And she claimed Trump has repeatedly refused to agree to “a peaceful transition”.

        The best answer to that, the one given by both Trump and Pence, is to point out that Democrats have refused for 4 years to allow them a “peaceful transition.”

      When you look at the pieces of the narrative that are conveniently omitted, the agenda is blatant. What are we told? That Breonna was “lovely”. And young. And worked in a hospital, and wanted to be a nurse someday. And her mommy and daddy miss her.

      The dark side of her life simply does not exist, not with the Agenda Media. They ignore the fact that she hung out with drug dealers, that she was the girlfriend of a known drug dealer and maintained some sort of relationship with him after she moved in with another suspected drug dealer, that she evidently allowed the first drug dealer boyfriend to use her address for the delivery of illegal drugs, that her car was often seen at his apartment and his at hers—-in other words, that she was involved in the illegal drug world. This is a violent world, BTW, and her posing for photos with a drug dealer, while holding a gun, indicates that she knew this. But she chose to live in it.

      This is a series of bad decisions that is likely to get you on the cop radar, and likely to put you in a very bad situation. That is what happened with Breonna Taylor.

      But hacks like Susan Page flog the fake Leftist narrative, complete with the comment that the current boyfriend says he did not hear the police identify themselves (ignoring the fact that the neighbor did) and are actively complicit in promoting the entire lie.

    Well here you go …

    Violent white supremacists pose the ‘most persistent and lethal threat’ to the United States, the Department of Homeland Security warned in its annual threat assessment.

    Got that? And even though there are no examples, they are convinced of this:

    The DHS described 2019 as the deadliest year for incidents of domestic extremism in 25 years – noting that white supremacists were responsible for the vast majority of people killed in those incidents.

    I had no idea white supremacists were killing so many people. So why are we afraid of a virus?

      Apparently right-wing extremists have been killing hundreds of people in the last 25 years while anti-fascists haven’t killed anyone. Who knew, and why hasn’t this been the lead item on the national news every day? Not to diminish deaths at the hands of extremists, but to put the numbers in perspective, 329 deaths in 25 years is 13/year, while approximately 7 times that many die from peanut allergies every year.

      I wonder if anyone has done a study on how many businesses have been burned down and looted by right-wing extremists. Probably thousands.

        I wonder if anyone has done a study on how many businesses have been burned down and looted by right-wing extremists

        I’ve been wondering the same thing. And just who got killed by white supremacists, and why wasn’t that ever publicized? One would certainly think that the race-sensitive Agenda Media would have made a big deal out of every single case of white supremacist “domestic extremism” and every death related to them, and I just can’t remember any stories about any of them.

        Another question is whether or not these cases of “domestic extremism” were committed by organized groups of white supremacists, or by individuals who were also identified by someone as a white supremacist. That is, if a Neo-Nazi kills his wife, is that included in the data bank of “white supremacist domestic extremism”? Killing a spouse would certainly qualify as “domestic extremism” after all.

        Sorry, folks, but after the manipulation of data regarding alleged Covid cases and fatalities I am very skeptical of such vague reports.

        My concept of white supremacists, which by the way I believe number very very few, is that they tend to be emotionally unstable anyway, probably with a tendency to be more violent than most. It’s a chicken-and-egg thing—does being mentally and emotionally unbalanced enough to think your skin color means you are superior also mean you are more violent than most, or does being more violent than most lead to hating people who look different than you? I’d say they are all part of the same psycho package, but it is politically convenient to assign any violence from any of these people to the “white supremacy” aspect of their pathology.

        I’m also curious about the political agendas of these white supremacists who mysteriously …pose the ‘most persistent and lethal threat’ to the United States, I mean, do they want to kill all the targeted races so they can take over the government? Do they want to overthrow the government? In what way would they “pose the ‘most persistent and lethal threat’ to the United States”?

        On one hand we have organized, trained and funded paramilitary groups deeply entrenched in the Marxist ideology of violent overthrow of governments, deployed by their leaders to instigate and lead violent attacks on cities and populations, while openly declaring their agenda of destroying our government and burning the country to the ground so they can establish their own form of government—– and DHS is fretting about a relative handful of melanin-obsessed neurotics who are not organized except occasionally in small groups, not funded by outside agitators, scorned and rejected by nearly everyone and without popular support much less corporate donations and approval, and not focused on much of anything but the skin color of some other people.

        Funny, isn’t it, how this report just happened to surface right before an election which has as an ongoing theme that promoted by the Left that the president is a white supremacist? Why do I smell a swamp creature behind this?

    The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself .. right? NOPE. Democrats are afraid of everything:

    The only thing that outraged the leftist elite, their cackling media Renfields, and the Fredocon sissies more than Donald Trump’s stubborn refusal to die was his stubborn refusal to cower in fear. Think of the collective climax they would have had if he had been wheeled out to the chopper or looked anything but mega-butch in the face of the virus? Once again, his courage has defied them, and that they cannot forgive. Now they are gripped with fear, the fear that the rest of us will stop being afraid too, because if we are not afraid then there’s no reason to let them run our lives. And without fear, there is nothing to protect them.

    So, they never stop fear mongering.

    Never cower or be afraid of anything. The worst possible outcome in this world is death, and people of Faith should never be afraid of death. In fact, people like myself look forward to the next journey. Democrats on the other hand believe only in themselves and their material world so death to them is unacceptable and something to absolutely avoid at all costs. They really are that miserable

      Funny you should say that. As you all know, I had a heart attack back in January. I had a follow-up appointment with a cardiologist in August, and he was disappointed that the medication I was taking hadn’t gotten my cholesterol level lower (actually it hadn’t changed at all — literally. HDL and LDL were exactly the same as on January 8th. The only noticeable effect of the medication (Zetia which I have since stopped taking) was that it gave me chronic gastro-intestinal distress. He wanted to put me on a new injectable drug called Rapatha that costs $6 grand a year, and was utterly flabbergasted when I said I wanted to think about it for a few days. Seriously, you’d have thought I had killed his dog. My immediate thought was I wondered how much of the $6 grand he was getting. He asked why, and I told him I’ve lived a long and productive life, and I’d rather die than feel awful for the rest of my life. He said the beauty of Rapatha was that it had almost “zero” side effects. So I went home and did some research on Rapatha. Turns out a not insignificant number of the people who have taken it and taken the time to review their experience don’t think much of it. The review average was 3 stars (out of 5). I buy a lot of stuff on-line, and I always look at reviews before buying something new. I would never buy a product with an average of 3 stars. Sorry, 3 stars out of 5 is not “zero” side effects

      Here’s a sample of the reviews:

      For High Cholesterol “I am a 62 year old active athletic male who had a family history of heart disease. Last year 2/14/19 I had a double stent put in. I did not have a heart attack and was very active as a referee. After my stent procedure, my doctor put me on repatha telling me it was a miracle drug that had no side effects. I slowly started feeling flu like symptoms. I continued to take the injections every two weeks up to six months. I ended up going to the emergency room several times thinking I was having a heart attack, feeling weak, dizzy, disoriented and as if I was having really low sugar. After several CT scans with contrast, another heart catheter, and two MRIs, they have not found anything wrong with me. I had an endoscopy, xrays and extensive blood testing. Still they have not found anything except the reaction from Repatha. I heard that it takes over 6 months before symptoms start subsiding. I had to stop refereeing a sport that I love for this year because of this poison medication.”

      Lowered my LDL tremendously. The back pain and flu like weakness is terrible. Can’t do any of my usual activities. Considering stopping this medication. I wish I could continue, but this is no way to live.

      The cardiologist’s PA called me a couple days later, and asked if I was ready to get started on Rapatha. I told her I had decided against doing anything for now. She was speechless. She called back a few days later, and told me I was going to have to take something, and suggested a couple other new drugs, both of which have a number of unacceptable side effects. I told her thanks but no thanks.

      A number of years ago, when lowering cholesterol became the be-all/end-all in the cardiology community, I tried 3 different statin drugs, all with the same intolerable side effects. It doesn’t seem that medical science has figured out how to eliminate them, and I don’t believe for a minute that they’re as rare as they’d like you to believe. To top it off, a recent study revealed that 75% of people who suffer a major heart attack had normal cholesterol.

        Spook, thanks for your input. We need to be reminded that WE are in charge of our health decisions, not our doctors. Many years ago when I was facing my first knee surgery I went into the consult appointment ready with the recommendations for how to have this discussion—my husband with me to help remember answers and a list of questions. The surgeon was indignant at being asked questions, so I fired him. You would have thought I shot him! THE VERY IDEA OF FIRING A DOCTOR! But as I told him, he worked for me and we were supposed to be a team working toward the same goal and I wasn’t willing to just shut up and not even ask questions about the procedure, dangers, prognosis, aftercare, etc.

        You also brought up the taboo idea of doctors getting paid by the companies for prescribing their drugs. We know it happens, we just don’t know to what extent, and we certainly don’t know how many people suffer from bad side effects or even die due to drug reactions.

        It is also important to know that there is not, to use the popular phrase, “consensus” on the role of cholesterol in heart health, much less the advantages of medical treatment for high cholesterol. The same thing is true of blood pressure—recently I have read reports questioning the dogma of a certain blood pressure range as the “right” one.

        You are in the right weight range, you work out regularly including doing cardio and strength training, you eat well, you don’t smoke and you drink very moderately if at all, and if you got lucky and got your mother’s genetics you should look forward to being around for quite a while.

        I sure hope so.

        Back to doctors: In the recent very public War Of The Health “Experts” I think we’ve seen that doctors have a wide range of expertise,opinions and convictions, and it is a little disconcerting to realize that and that we still have to pick one to put our faith in. But we now have the ability to check things out, to do as you do and check reviews from people who have experience with certain drugs or treatments, and be much more informed as patients than we used to be. That is a good thing.

        and we certainly don’t know how many people suffer from bad side effects or even die due to drug reactions.

        Actually, on the deaths we do.

        The difficulty involved in trying to estimate the toll, however, hasn’t stopped Moore and other researchers from seeking to quantify how many people die annually from taking prescribed drugs – often by closely evaluating hospital admission studies. Estimates dating back nearly two decades put the number at 100,000 or more deaths annually, which includes a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1998 that projected 106,000 deaths. A more recent analysis estimates 128,000 Americans die each year as a result of taking medications as prescribed (emphasis – mine)

        Kind of puts the number killed by right-wing extremists in even further perspective, doesn’t it? And since we all saw a left-wing extremist on video shoot a Trump supporter in the back of the head in Portland a few weeks ago, the claim that left-wing extremists haven’t killed anyone rings a little hollow.

      • Amazona October 8, 2020 / 11:04 am

        And it’s not just prescription drugs. Tylenol is often listed as the most dangerous drug in the country. Here is a breakdown of the most dangerous drugs: (I mention this in the context of the media hysteria about HCQ, a drug which has been tested and in use for half a century or so, which has had a very few adverse reactions relating to heart rhythms in people with existing heart rhythm problems, ignoring the warnings we see every day on television when new drugs are advertised.)

        TYLENOL: Acetaminophen is the nation’s leading cause of acute liver failure, according to data from an ongoing study funded by the National Institutes for Health. Analysis of national mortality files shows about 450 deaths occur each year from acetaminophen-associated overdoses; 100 of these are unintentional. Analysis of national databases also show that Acetaminophen-related overdoses account for about 50,000 emergency room visits and 25,000 hospitalizations yearly.

        ALCOHOL: An estimated 88,000 people die from alcohol-related causes annually. In addition to causing health issues such as cancer, liver damage, hypertension, heart disease, and fetal damage, alcohol abuse increases the risk of injuries, suicide, violence, and motor accidents. Due to these factors, excessive alcohol consumption is the third-leading cause of death in the United States.

        BENZODIAZEPINES: Benzodiazepine drugs rank high on this list due to the high prescription rate and increased risk of deadly respiratory depression that occurs when taking the medications.

        ANTICOAGULANTS: Anticoagulants rank fourth on this list due to the serious health conditions that can result from use, such as strokes, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), heart attacks, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and pulmonary embolism. When combined with Aspirin and other blood-thinning drugs, anticoagulants can also cause fatal internal and/or external bleeding.

        ANTIDEPRESSANTS: These drugs are high on this list due to the adverse health effects long-term use can have on consumers. Those taking antidepressants have a 33% higher risk of dying prematurely than people who are not taking the drugs. Additionally, antidepressant users are 14% more likely to have an adverse cardiovascular event, such as a stroke or heart attack.

        ANTI-HYPERTENSIVES: These drugs have been linked to cardiovascular issues, acute renal failure, prostate cancer, and new-onset diabetes in consumers – all of which can result in death. When combined with NSAIDs or diuretics, the possibility of experiencing these health risks is amplified and can lead to fatality.

        If we add the deaths due to commonly used drugs, prescription and over the counter, plus alcohol, to those from diseases like influenza, we see that the alleged Covid deaths are not nearly as dramatic or terrifying as we are led to believe. And those are “alleged” Covid deaths—even the NYT admitted that only about 1% of them were due exclusively to Covid.

        After reading the list, above, I wonder how many of the commonly prescribed drugs used to treat the same co-morbidities that complicate Covid cases actually contributed to the deaths. For example, high blood pressure has been listed as a contributing factor in Covid extreme illness and death, yet blood pressure medications are linked to “…cardiovascular issues, acute renal failure, prostate cancer, and new-onset diabetes in consumers – all of which can result in death. ” Add a few Tylenol for those muscle aches or headaches that accompany Covid and you’ve got a very problematic outcome even without the autoimmune reaction to the virus.

        But I have digressed from comparing deaths due to those nasty old white supremacists to those from other causes and then to Covid. Sorry about that.

The narrative for determining what is actually “high” cholesterol has absolutely nothing to do with scientific studies but rather an arbitrary point of measurement because they could now measure it and had to pick “something”. As a whole, cardiologists will recommend statin drugs for most all of their patients. Why? Because it’s become their “gold standard” for treating anyone who walks in front of them. Failure for them to recommend (push) statins puts them in a position of not having lived up to the AMA’s (big pharma’s) decree. I too had a heart attack last year, actually a blockage near the heart that was largely due to high platelets that my system wants to produce for unknown reasons. Based on the chart in the paperwork the cardiologist gave me, my cholesterol was in the ideal range, but the doc still insisted I needed to take statins. I told him no thanks. He wasn’t happy about it. I suspect if I persist, which I absolutely will, he may decide to drop me as a non-conforming patient. We’ll see.

        Cholesterol is largely produced in the body thru the process called the Krebs cycle, which is how the body converts glucose to energy. Statins work by blocking part of the pathway in this cycle screwing up all kinds of other things (who would have guessed). The better way to diminish heart attacks AND lower cholesterol is to deal with your triglycerides. That can be accomplished by notably reducing carb intake. If you attempt this direction, realize it generally takes a few months for this to show up in blood tests. My son has successfully treated numerous patients using this method WITHOUT any drugs and their side effects. This is one of the big reasons the AMA as a whole dislike docs who deal in alternative medicine.

        And just so you know, I’m not totally anti-pharmaceutical. There certainly are drugs that are highly beneficial under certain conditions. For example, a trauma patient in severe pain often needs a number of drugs to deal with the pain, inflammation, and infection, among other things. This is generally not the time for alternative medicine. That platelets problem I mentioned, I take a drug to deal with that. Without insurance it would cost a little over $14,000 PER MONTH. Otherwise my platelets would be (and was for a while) way off the chart and my risk for heart attack & stroke exponentially higher. Now it’s only 2 1/2 times the recommended range for high.

        The better way to diminish heart attacks AND lower cholesterol is to deal with your triglycerides. That can be accomplished by notably reducing carb intake.

        I’ve read that, and I’ve also read the the ratio between HDL and triglycerides is a more important factor than overall cholesterol level. Over the course of the last 8 months I’ve reduced my triglycerides from 213 to 152, so I’m only a couple points outside the normal range. I’ve always had good HDL in the high 40’s to high 50’s. My LDL is high, though, at 151, and nothing I do seems to have much effect on it. As I said, the Zetia, which the cardiologist said would lower it by around 20%, didn’t lower it a single point. My overall cholesterol lever has been between 214 and 227 since January. That said, three years ago it was 311, HDL 59, LDL 201 and triglycerides 253. I’ve tried several non-prescription supplements that have brought it down to where it is now,

        I don’t eat a lot of carbs to begin with, and I reduced my triglycerides by cutting out sugar. Also lost 20 lbs. in the process, from 185 to 165, and my blood glucose dropped from the mid 130’s to under 100. My family doctor was concerned that I might be becoming diabetic and gave me a meter, lancets and test strips and asked me back in March to monitor it once or twice a week. As Amazona noted, I work out at the Y for an hour, 3 days a week, combination of cardio and weights. Physically I feel better than I have in quite a while, and I’m reluctant to try any medication that has a good chance of altering that.

      • jdge1 October 8, 2020 / 4:49 pm

        Glad you’ve been able to make a notable impact on your sugar level, weight and triglycerides. As for carbs & sugar, I generally consider them one and the same as they’re all converted by the body into simple sugars and are either used a fuel or converted by insulin and stored as fat.

      Don’t hold your breath. This is from an article on May 20, 2020. It doesn’t seem to have gotten much interest in the past four and a half months: emphasis mine

      Joe Biden Is Now Under Criminal Internal Investigation From The FBI. Well, all hell breaking loose on the presumptive Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden.

      Just yesterday, Ukraine Court launched criminal investigation into Biden’s dealings in Ukraine and today the FBI key start an internal investigation into the former Vice President.

      And this article links to the one about the Ukrainian investigation. So, almost five months ago both the Ukrainian government and the American FBI started to investigate Joe Biden’s corrupt and illegal activities, and so far we haven’t heard a word about either of those “investigations”.

      That might be a good question to ask, either of Biden if there is another debate or in a speech and at rallies. That is, what prompted the investigations and why haven’t we heard anything about them since then? Are they ongoing and the Agenda Media are just covering them up?

    One of many things that bug me about the lack of focus in Republican messaging is our failure to explain just why Roe v Wade MIGHT be overturned. The Left relentlessly promotes the idea that if this happens it would be due to religious belief or anti-abortion sentiment, and we never step in and tell them they are not only wrong, they are lying.

    IF Roe is overturned, as it should be, it would be solely on the basis of it being wrong in the first place. Not on abortion but on the idea that the federal government has authority in this area. Strict Constitutionalists, which SCOTUS justices are supposed to be, rule only on the constitutionality of any issue, and in this case even many who are fine with killing babies thought the ruling was wrong because it defied the 10th Amendment and assigned federal authority to something not delegated to the federal government in the Constitution.

    This is really really an important thing to explain, over and over—not just to take pressure off the Court when it comes to reviewing Roe but to illustrate the broader truth about the true role of the Court and the difference between Liberal and Conservative justices. We continually drop the ball when it comes to important messaging like this, so the public is led to believe, without contradiction from us, that a “conservative” Court will just rule on the side of Conservatives. This ought to be challenged every time it raises its ugly head, because this is a toxic concept that influences the attitudes and beliefs of millions of people. It leads to the nonsense that the Court should be “balanced” between the Left and the Right and it allows the Left to continually stir up trouble and conflict about every Court appointee.

    Right now the only conservative voice I can think of who could effectively deliver this message is Kayleigh McEnany, who is by far the best communicator on our side. She is direct, precise and coherent, and gets a lot of information packed into organized statements. I think she should start any answer relating to the Barrett nomination with this kind of statement.

    • Cluster October 8, 2020 / 10:05 am

      Last night, Susan Page asked this question to Kamala … and I paraphrase

      “If Roe v Wade is overturned and sent down to the States for them to decide, what would your State of California do?”

      That was a great question, because this is a State issue and it is important to know what Democrats would do in their individual States. As it is now, Roe v Wade is just a cover for what radical Dems would do in their own States vs what Red States would do and I don’t think Dems want the average American to know just how extreme they are.

      • Amazona October 8, 2020 / 10:35 am

        And……Harris ducked the question, providing a flurry of words without a specific answer

        But at least Page acknowledged that a repeal of Roe would not make abortion illegal but would just kick it back to the states. I am not sure she realized she was shooting down a beloved Leftist narrative—that a repeal of Roe would make abortion illegal. I’m guessing she just didn’t think it through. Her questions seemed a lot more intended to set up Pence for future attacks based on his responses than on silly things like facts, logic or reason, and she seemed perfectly willing to make a fool of herself to do so.

  10. jdge1 October 8, 2020 / 10:11 am

    I only saw a little of the debate last night. What I really appreciated was Pence would use part of his time for the current question setting right Harris’s comments on the previous question, then proceeding answering whatever part of the current question he felt worthy of a response instead of the way it was put in from of him. Not sure about the rest of the debate but it seemed that Pence did what he needed exposing the holes in the Biden / Harris platform and previous political screwups.

    And I agree about how the abortion debate by the left is always framed as “an attack on women” and “loss of rights” without much if any challenge. You’d think after all these years the political right would have a staunch response for this, instead of shying away like they’re the one who got this wrong and have no idea on how to respond.

    • Amazona October 8, 2020 / 11:58 am

      Roe is not about abortion. It is about distortion of the Constitution. It is about judicial activism and legislating from the bench. It is about infringement on state sovereignty. It is about violation of the 10th Amendment. The core issue would be the same if the subject matter were used car sales or state income taxes and the core issue can be applied to Obamacare as well.

  11. Amazona October 8, 2020 / 11:55 am

    We need twenty or thirty years of power to reform this nation from top to bottom, and our problem is to figure out how to get that.

    I think three approaches are essential. One is to explain every time something has a good effect just why it succeeded, and relate it to following the Constitution. That is not as hard as it sounds. For example, when talking about certain kinds of economic expansion relate this to the elimination of onerous and job-killing regulations and then touch on how they were put in place by unelected political appointees, not through the proper legislative process demanded by the Constitution, and were part of a political agenda and not a coherent economic plan. That’s three or four sentences in a speech, quick and easy to understand.

    It’s the repetition that matters. It’s the consistency of the message. And this is what would lay down a foundation for the next presidential challenge. This is what would explain to the people what works and why it works. We tend to use short cuts like “free market” or “small government” assuming that everyone knows what we mean. They don’t.

    Another is to continue to develop depth on the bench, accompanied by the concept that when it comes to primaries we do not savage the opposition to gain traction. Look at how Harris’s attacks on Biden are coming back to haunt him now. (I am anticipating that we will be smart enough to use them, anyway.) We need to promote the concept of arguing based on ideas, principles and policies, and fight fight fight the insidious creep of Identity Politics, by name and by example. I would go so far as to pick out, right now, two or three contenders and start to build them up as potential successors. The Left wins because they play the long game, and are solidified behind their people. Oh, they let the little guys play for a while, like in the Dem primary, but in fact they know all along who is going to win and the game is rigged. That might not be fair, but if the GOP were to do that with a scintilla of intelligence and planning behind it we could hit the ground running in January of 2024 with someone carefully groomed and built up to step in as the new face of the party, to continue the work started by Trump.

    And of course, develop a media presence. One example: Denver has a little local TV station, Channel 2. It’s on the satellite station lists, but it mainly shows reruns and some infomercials as well as a few rather obscure series. I’ll bet every big city has a station like this. Buy time, hours a week, but be consistent so the word can get out and people can get used to planning to watch. Then get a good solid professional production team and put together some good programming. (Here I would bring in Glenn Beck. He bought a movie or TV studio in Dallas when he moved down there and could probably be a valuable production asset.) Show a combination of something like the old Rest of The Story by Paul Harvey but with the kinds of detailed background and context necessary to offset the lies people hear all day from the Agenda Media, see if Fox would let them rebroadcast the weekly Mark Levin interviews which are proving to be brilliant, and in general provide a source of Conservative thought and information. Get away from the talking head template of Hannity and Ingraham. They are good at what they do, but do something different. And integrate it all, using some of each format. An interesting effort is the Greg Gutfeld Show, which is uneven but when it is good it is really good, and at least it is an effort to break away from the Same Old Same Old. But we need an hour or two during the day and the same in prime time.

    At the same time use the internet, not just the social media venues but have a big glossy web site that is easy to get to, easy to navigate and where people are encouraged to look up and verify statements as well as see videos. I think a lot of people would donate to the GOP if we could see our money being used intelligently and transparently, for something productive.

    The problem with the Right is that it is kind of like herding cats. When I think of who could possibly organize the Right, get it less chaotic and more focused and even instill some ideological discipline, I can only come up with Ted Cruz. I’d love to see meetings of groups of Senators and Representatives with a leader asking “Why are you Republicans? Because you had damned well better know, and you had damned well be ready and able to answer that question in a way that makes sense, or you will be on the sidelines watching the Left run this country into the ground”. And then go on with outlines of governing principles so there is some coherence and consistency in our legislatures at the very least. We need that kind of organization and discipline in the state GOPs as well. Why can’t we have one or two people, or a team, that goes around the country to meet with local GOP groups to do this kind of thing?

    This year more than any other year, we should have had an organized NATIONAL election theme, to be used in one form or another, in every state and large city across the country: Photos of riots, with the message THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU ELECT DEMOCRATS. Photos of bloodied police officers, or police funerals, with the same banners. Everywhere. Photos of homeless camps, feces piled up on the streets and boarded up businesses with the caption THIS IS WHAT A DEMOCRAT-LED CITY LOOKS LIKE. The national GOP should have coordinated something like this and helped local politicians by making the material available to them. This is not only the kind of thing that elects Republican Senators and Representatives and mayors and school boards and governors, it builds the base for a presidential run. It sets the essential political structure of one side against that of the other, which is what we should be doing.

    We run around with out hair on fire, bumping into each other, tripping over each other, yelling confused and sometimes conflicting messages, and wonder why we don’t have the solid unified front we should have, and need.

    Frank Luntz focus group, asks for one word to describe Pence: “robot… presidential… even-keeled…presidential…bland…regressive….professional…pathetic….calm….typical politician….comfortable….no emotion

    Frank Luntz focus group, asks for one word to describe Harris: “evasive…nervous…shifting blame…caring….snarky….too rehearsed….nervous….evasive….abrasive….unsteady….rigid….unpresidential”

    So the hits on Pence were basically that he did not emote—that he was a “robot”, was “bland”, was “regressive” (whatever that was supposed to mean), was “pathetic” (clearly not a fan but really—“pathetic”?) and showed “no emotion”. For the Number Two guy those don’t seem like very big negatives, not when compared to two “presidentials”, “professional” “even-keeled” and “calm”. And “comfortable” which I took to mean “confident”. So someone thought he came across as a “typical politician”. But he seemed to impress as an analyst not likely to overreact, which I think most people would see as a good thing.

    But gee, Kammy didn’t impress, did she? She got one compliment, for being “caring”. That might help if she were applying for a job running a nursing home (though she strikes me as a real Nurse Ratched.) Two “evasives” and a “shifting blame” seem pretty indicative of lack of confidence in her honesty, and two “nervous” votes and “unsteady” were interesting, as well. I had to agree with “too rehearsed” and “abrasive” and can’t argue with “rigid” or my favorite, “unpresidential”. (Someone has been paying attention to Joe’s mental state.) And I loved “snarky”—-that word came to mind often as a watched, along with “smug” and “smirky” .

    I was concerned with the optics—visually, she was glowing with health and color, her makeup was perfect and she looked vibrant and very pretty, while Mike Pence was without a doubt the palest whitest guy I ever saw on TV. (I thought the lighting was unfair—she got the soft lights and he got the glare that made him look washed out. Those things can matter.) I was a little worried that a lot of people would focus more on the visual contrast and be influenced by it. So it was reassuring to see the focus group ignore, for the most part, the theatrical aspect and look for the content.

    BTW, I have noticed the rush to whine that she was not being treated well, with the repeated mantra of “mansplaining”. Clearly these apologists want a different, kinder, softer way of speaking to Kammy, as if she is not an equal but has to be pampered. They think MIKE PENCE was too hard on her? He is a respectful American man used to working with women. I can imagine her dealing with a misogynistic Middle Eastern leader, or Vladimir Putin, if she has to be treated like a prima donna. That would go well……

    … we’ll be careful about not bringing indictments in a way that can be viewed as interfering with the election,” Attorney General Bill Barr said during a recent interview with Townhall.

    I kind of thought that might be a consideration, though he went on to talk about the lengthy and time consuming process of making sure that everything is fully investigated. I still wonder about the need to prove “intent”—what happened to “ignorance of the law is no excuse”? These people knew what they were doing was illegal—that’s why they tried so hard to hide it. If you think something is legitimate you don’t have to lie about it. When I was in traffic court for speeding I went in with a statement from a mechanic that my cruise control and speedometer were defective, but after the lecture by the judge about how it doesn’t matter WHY you were speeding, it only matters IF you were speeding, I told the judge I realized my affidavit didn’t really matter and plead guilty. That’s the way the law works out in the real world, for average people.

      It’s really incredible watching you buy the same old lies over and over again. Remember when we were going to Lock Her Up all those years ago? It was going to happen right alongside Trump releasing his tax returns, unveiling his healthcare plan, and getting Mexico to pay for a wall back in 2017. Did you notice that none of those things happened? And now they are just promising the same things to you again 4 years later? Alls you gotta do is elect him again, he’ll really do those things this time, pinky-swear!

      I’ll do you a favor and explain why Barr actually isn’t going to do anything before the election: he has nothing. Nada. Zilch. The best he can possibly do is make some vague noises and waggle his eyebrows about how this time, they totally are going to do the thingy after the election, so that’s what he’s doing. In the unlikely event that Trump gets re-elected? You’ll never hear about Biden or Burisma or Ukraine from Bill Barr or Ron Johnson again. You’ll still never see Trump’s taxes, he’ll still have not unveiled his perfect plan for healthcare for our country. It’ll quietly go away, just like it did last time you believed these people. They’ll be right on the verge of making everything right, and the caravan will always be on the way to the border, and Cory Booker will be on his way to move some poors into your living room, right until the election happens, and then pretend time will be over again until 2022.

        Tryvasty is a perfect example of the kind of muddled “thinking” that allows the Left to exist.

        Stating a goal is not the same thing as making a promise or commitment from the position of authority that would allow that to be accomplished.

        The Department of Justice was still run by Leftists, and it has taken quite a while to gradually weed them out and wade through the carefully constructed maze of lies, obstructions of justice, hidden emails and so on to be able to put together the kind of case that is required in a court of law. The Left acts as judge, jury and executioner when it feels that a wrong has been done—-the riots promoted by the Left are a perfect example of that, as well as the parade of overheated emoters breathlessly opining that “justice has not been done”. We on this side don’t operate that way. We believe in the rule of law and the processes involved.

        (Regarding respect for process, see Thomas Sowell’s “Conflict of Visions” for an explanation of the difference between two basic perceptions of people.)

        We have recently seen the uncovering, thanks to the diligent though admittedly often slow and plodding detective work of the DOJ, of the kinds of hard cold proofs necessary to proceed through the processes of the judicial system. No one ever said that Hillary would be locked up “…right alongside Trump releasing his tax returns, unveiling his healthcare plan, and getting Mexico to pay for a wall back in 2017. ” Those are different elements, not necessarily linked except in the fever swamp of the blindly dedicated haters. But, being ideas, they are pretty hard to grasp by the average Lefty.

        The only reason to rummage around in Trump’s tax returns is to try to snout out something that might be used against him in the election. This, by the way, is also known as trying to influence an election, in a similar way the hiring of a Russian agent by Hillary Clinton to invent salacious lies about Trump was intended to do.

        Only the truly simple minded could interpret the idea of Mexico paying for the wall as requiring the president of Mexico to write out a check to the US Treasury with the words “to pay for the wall” on the memo line. Evidently the concept that in a way Mexico would be paying for the wall through our savings in not having to deal with illegals crossing the border, not having billions of dollars sent out of our economy to Mexico by illegal workers here and other various negotiations is just way too complex for the Leftist mind to grasp. Therefore, if it’s not a check it doesn’t count.

        We finally have strategists running things, and I firmly believe that there is a strategy in holding off indictments until after the election. Filing them now would just feed the drooling frenzy of the Left, which is now so invested in discussing the metaphysical meaning of a fly landing on Mike Pence’s head.

        But we have testimony from people involved in the illegal spying on American citizens by their own government and we have their own emails and texts supporting that testimony and we have proof that this went all the way to the White House with the knowledge and participation of Barack Obama and probably Joe Biden. We have proof of the corruption and rot at the highest levels of the FBI and CIA. Try reading something besides HuffPo to learn what is coming out. Though as you obviously lurk here you have seen comments and links to this kind of damning information. I understand why you so frantically need to try to dismiss it as “…nothing. Nada. Zilch.”

        You’ll never hear about Biden or Burisma or Ukraine from Bill Barr or Ron Johnson again. Now there’s a wistful hope if I ever heard one. But as far as I know the Ukrainian investigation into Joe Biden (Note: Into JOE BIDEN, not sonny-boy) is ongoing. What has the Left’s panties in a twist is the obvious fact that Hunter Biden is and always was totally incapable of putting together any kind of a scam on his own, and that he was merely a front man for Daddy’s wheeling and dealing with various foreign governments to pad his own bank accounts. All the fraud and theft roads lead right back to Joe Biden, and not just from Ukraine. There is still that billion-dollar deal with China to look into.

        But thanks for dropping in and giving us an update on what is bubbling up out of the toxic stew of the Leftist minds. It is kind of interesting, in the same creepy way that watching maggots feed is interesting. For a while. Then it’s just boring.

        John Solomon has done stellar investigative reporting on the Russia collusion fraud. Here’s what he thinks has yet to be declassified.

        Solomon said on Glenn Beck this morning that he thinks Trump has about had enough with the foot dragging and may declassify all this information himself. I think, if all this damning information ever reaches the public domain a lot of Americans are going to say, “holy sh*t!

        “Stating a goal is not the same thing as making a promise or commitment from the position of authority that would allow that to be accomplished.”

        Claiming that you have a plan for healthcare that’s super amazing and you’re about to unveil it when you have no plan at all isn’t stating a goal, it’s lying. Saying you will release your taxes after the election and then not releasing them isn’t stating a goal, it’s lying. Saying you are going to make Mexico pay for a wall when you know there’s no possible way that’s ever going to happen isn’t stating a goal, it’s lying.

        “The Department of Justice was still run by Leftists, and it has taken quite a while to gradually weed them out and wade through the carefully constructed maze of lies, obstructions of justice, hidden emails and so on to be able to put together the kind of case that is required in a court of law.”

        I’ll quote Trump here, speaking about Locking Her Up after he won the election but before he took office.

        “That plays great before the election — now we don’t care, right?” – Dec 9th 2016

        Not only did he give up on the idea before he took office and the Justice Department before he took office, he told you that he never intended to follow through, and you’re still here ready to believe him again!

        “The only reason to rummage around in Trump’s tax returns is to try to snout out something that might be used against him in the election.”

        Irrelevant. Did he say he was going to release them after the election? Did he release them after the election? No? That’s called lying. Has he repeatedly claimed that he can’t do so because something about an audit? Is there any factual basis to that claim? No again? That’s called lying.

        “Only the truly simple minded could interpret the idea of Mexico paying for the wall as requiring the president of Mexico to write out a check to the US Treasury with the words “to pay for the wall” on the memo line. Evidently the concept that in a way Mexico would be paying for the wall through our savings in not having to deal with illegals crossing the border, not having billions of dollars sent out of our economy to Mexico by illegal workers here and other various negotiations is just way too complex for the Leftist mind to grasp. Therefore, if it’s not a check it doesn’t count.”

        Uhh are you sure you want to go with that explanation? There are still materials on Trump’s website explicitly laying out plans for exactly how they were going to get Mexico to write a check.

        Click to access Pay_for_the_Wall.pdf

        ( e.g. “It’s an easy decision for Mexico: make a one-time payment of $5-
        10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year
        after year. There are several ways to compel Mexico to pay for the wall
        including the following:” )

        I mean, if you want to go with only the simple minded would believe Trump’s explicit statements, I think we’re on the same page. He definitely is a liar and you’d have to be simple minded to believe him.

        “Now there’s a wistful hope if I ever heard one. But as far as I know the Ukrainian investigation into Joe Biden (Note: Into JOE BIDEN, not sonny-boy) is ongoing. What has the Left’s panties in a twist is the obvious fact that Hunter Biden is and always was totally incapable of putting together any kind of a scam on his own, and that he was merely a front man for Daddy’s wheeling and dealing with various foreign governments to pad his own bank accounts.

After seeing Kammy spin her litany of lies, not just lies but so easily disproved lies, and watching Uncle Joe bounce back and forth between stories, if you base your emotions on having the most hate for the biggest liar you clearly have to abandon your Leftist candidates.

        In the meantime, the adults in the room will be making decisions on which blueprint is the best way to govern the nation, and leave the emoting and hysteria to you.

        Wow. You must have really worked hard on that one. And what a great example of Leftist “discourse” you are—-unable to address what was said, so desperately needing to pretend it said something else.

        “make some pathetic noises about Harris”? What other kind of noise can anyone make about Harris? The woman is not only a mess, she lied and then lied some more and then lied again. From the invented and completely false story about Lincoln to the claim Trump never denounced white supremacists to the claim he called our military dead losers, the poor creature just couldn’t stop lying. She either lied outright or simply refused to answer a point blank question. “Pathetic” is the right word to use about Harris.

        And I did try to come up with a slightly less coarse way to say your entire post was a piece of shit, but when it comes down to it no matter how I tried to say it, that’s what it was.

        Ahahahaha! Do you have any sense of irony at all? -I’m- unable to address what was said? We’re talking about how the Trump Campaign makes up stories about investigations to get you all frothy but nothing ever comes of it, and you suddenly start talking about butts and Kamala for some reason and then complain that -I’m- avoiding the topic at hand?

        Do you wear a clown nose while you’re typing up these comedy posts?

    When Kamala Harris was expounding on yet another of her many lies, this one about her claim that Donald Trump ignored credible reports of Russian bounties on American servicemen and women, she sneered: “[There was] Public reporting that Russia had bounties on the heads of American soldiers,” Harris said. “And you know what a bounty is? Somebody puts a price on your head and they will pay it if you are killed.

    And I thought to myself, Yes, I do know what a bounty is. It is what the New Black Panthers promised to anyone who would kill George Zimmerman. It is what Chicago street gangs promised to pay to people who killed police officers. It is what “comedian” George Lopez said the Left would pay to kill President Trump—half of the reputed $80 million suggested as the price Iran would supposedly pay for the president’s head.

    Bounties in this country seem to always be offered by Leftists, in the Leftist spirit of killing people they don’t like. It would have been in true Leftist tradition for Russia to make such an offer, but there is no proof that any such bounty on Americans was ever promised or even discussed.

    But the American Left, while claiming Trump is erratic, out of control and so on seems to also wish he had flown into a rage and challenged another nation’s leader on the basis of gossip that was never verified even after extensive investigation.

      The fact that she explained what a bounty is, tells you what she thinks of her voters. And why did she marry a white guy?

      • Amazona October 8, 2020 / 5:28 pm

        She was just b***hsplaining.

    • Retired Spook October 8, 2020 / 4:23 pm

      Bottom line, it’s scary to imagine her a heartbeat away from a President Biden.

      From your lips to God’s ears

      Why WHY does Fox news employ Juan Williams, Donna Brazille, and Chris Wallace? Is it just to piss us off.

      • Amazona October 9, 2020 / 10:36 am

        I haven’t figured out Fox’s masochistic determination to wallow in the same filth that defines the Agenda Media. All I know is that my Fox viewing is now limited to occasional viewings of the late-night opinion people. Sean Hannity is tiresome—-I wish he would learn to simply ask a question without a long involved regurgitation of every single thing that he thinks is important—but Tucker is great and Laura has had some really significant information and analysis.

        Aside from their nightly opinion shows, Fox is often just another Leftist mouthpiece, with the exception of Brit Hume, who doesn’t put up with that nonsense. Fox’s chyrons just spout Leftist themes and talking points.

    This is an unacceptable answer for any political candidate and how the Democrats and the media let this go unanswered is a grave disservice to this country. These completely dishonest people must be put down.

    “You’ll know my opinion on court-packing when the election is over,” Biden told reporters.

      Yet people vote for these people and their party.

      I still think they vote less FOR the Democrat Party than AGAINST the Invented Other the party has created and fed to them in horror stories, virtue signaling by voting against the evil they have been brainwashed into believing is represented by the Republican Party

    How did I miss that post from travesty?? And Spook please don’t waste prayers on that moron. He is the epitome of ignorant and on a rinse and repeat cycle.

    Truth is Trump has kept all his promises and then some and that is why the American people love him. And just FYI travesty, yes the border is closed thanks to the Covid panic and Mexico did pay for most of it.

    Draining the swamp is messy and loud and I am loving it. Listen to them squeal

    Here’s the truth re: Biden’s reported 16 point lead in the polls. IF THIS WERE TRUE and Democrats actually believed it, you would see the Obama’s out campaigning with the Biden/Harris ticket and enjoying the limelight and the upcoming victory tour. But they are not … and neither is any established Democrat tying themselves to Biden because they all know ……

    Rush has a great guest host today: President Donald J. Trump.

    • Retired Spook October 9, 2020 / 12:24 pm

      It appears I misspoke. Twenty minutes into his show it’s just one on one with Rush and Trump.

    • Amazona October 9, 2020 / 10:47 pm

      Well, DUH! Communism is a Leftist political structure, the natural evolution of socialism, and Biden represents the move of this nation into full-fledged openly admitted socialism.

      OF COURSE Russia would be thrilled to see the United States jump off that cliff

  21. Cluster October 9, 2020 / 6:13 pm

    Trump dropped the F bomb on Rush today. I love that man hahahaha. So authentic. Speaking on Iran Trump said “If they f**k with us I will …..” he’s definitely the right President

    Also mentioned by Trump was the fact that this crossfire hurricane investigation should have wrapped up a year ago and he would know but this is what the swamp does …. milk taxpayer money. It’s a shame
