Not your father’s GOP:

Over the top? No, it isn’t.

Jerone Davison is running in Arizona’s newly-redistricted 4th District and it is rated “Likely” to “Lean” Democrat, which is probably correct and so if he gets the GOP nomination, he’s got an uphill climb. But that hill isn’t nearly as steep as it would have been in any other year – Pudding Brain’s approval rating in Arizona is somewhat lower than pond scum.

That is a fun, attention-getting (though very true) ad, but I liked this one a lot better:

He gets it. Yes, we GOPers are Conservative and free market adherents…but when tech giants are this powerful and so closely aligned with the Democrat party we can’t allow free market theory to override our need to get our message out in the primary field of debate: social media. I don’t know much about this man but what little I’ve learned is good. I’m sure the Democrats, if he gets the nod, will find some dirt on him or make some up if necessary…don’t care. He looks like a fighter and I hope he wins.

The other video for you to watch today is linked here: in it, you’ll see three fat, well-off young women trash a fast food joint in NYC. Why? Because they charge $1.75 for extra sauce. This is not sustainable – civilized people will not put up with this forever. Nothing will be done and nothing will be done and nothing will be done – until something is done and that something will be exceptionally violent.

Looks like PM Boris Johnson might be tossed out of office because one of his people named – and I’m not kidding – Pincher has gone around groping men. The British Empire ended not with a bang, but a whimper…and British Scandals degenerated from Profumo to Pincher. Can’t say I’m sad about it if Boris goes – he was clever enough to realize he could ride Brexit into Number 10 and he has kept his word on that, but in all other things he’s what Thatcher called a “wet”…going along to get along with Labour and no real changes in British policy. They are, after all, still arresting you in the UK for misgendering someone. Hopefully someone will ride to Britain’s rescue, but I’m doubtful about it…they’re just arguing over who gets the money as that country slowly dies.

The pro abortion movements seems…kinda meh, doesn’t it? There were a few days of shrieking purple haired feminists saying they wouldn’t have sex with Republicans (thank you!), but now its rather faded away. Didn’t seem to cause much of a blip in polling, either. My bet always has been that abortion is not popular – that even most of those who don’t want to ban it find it distasteful to a high degree. Abortion is something propped up by the Ruling Class…which wants the people to be childless tenants dependent upon government subsidies to pay for imported goods. They don’t want, that is, Americans – they want us to become Europeans, with our population slowly being replaced by immigrants whom the Ruling Class believes are easily controlled (Spoiler: they’re wrong about that as Latino voters are shifting heavy to the GOP). I think that after all is said and done, outside the deepest blue areas, abortion will be restricted in this or that manner and people will cease to care much about it.

They’re supposedly working on a pill which will eliminate certain aging cells in your body, thus allowing you to stay healthy and live longer. A lot longer: like to 200 years old. First pass on this: it won’t work. I can imagine it helping, to be sure – but more than doubling human life is probably a pipe dream. According to the article, we’ll find out – the pill is supposed to be ready in about 10 years. Would I take it? Not to live to 200: don’t want to. But to keep my mind and organs from deteriorating? That would be highly tempting – because outside of death, itself, what frightens us? The fear of being alive but incapacitated. And that, I think, is where any such treatment will fail…it might help, say, keep your liver healthier longer (and that’s a good thing) but ageing is still going on…coded into you is still the decay and it very likely accelerates over time so you’d have to take ever more of the drug for ever shrinking benefit and lord only knows what side effects.

    You’re 100% correct re: abortion. What a disgraceful poison pill that was for 50 years. It did expose the Democrats desire to rule by fiat though and I think a lot of people now see that.

    What I find to be incredulous is the fact that here we are 20 years later with the very same people at the helm of our government, who by every measure are complete failures if not straight up criminals, and yet they still have defenders ie: forty and fielding, although they are few. There is not one thing currently going right in this country and no one in charge wants to take responsibility. This is unsustainable and I still contend that the complicit corporate media is the biggest threat this country faces.

      I think the pro-abortion crowd is so distasteful that they are helping the pro-life movement. Look at the insanity of forty’s post regurgitating the latest Leftist meme of Forced Birthing–without a doubt one of the stupidest slogans ever invented, even without forty’s added claim that this can also be defined as slavery.

      Dick’s Sporting Goods posted a tweet promising to pay up to $4000 for employees, and a person to go along with her, to travel to another state to kill her baby. I sent this along and have found it along with comments about simply not shopping there any more.

      It’s a bizarre turn of events when a company will advertise its financial support for a human rights violation, but I think things like this will backfire on them.

      In the meantime, the breathless story of the ten-year-old pregnant girl forced to go to another state to have the baby killed is in the process of blowing up as a lie, a scam, a hype, whatever you want to call an invention designed to stir up the Usual Suspects and have them howling and yowling even more than usual.

      • Retired Spook July 7, 2022 / 12:16 pm

        My first thought when I heard the pregnant 10-year-old story, even before asking what percentage of 10-year-olds are able to get pregnant, was, have they caught the guy who raped her?

      • Amazona July 8, 2022 / 2:15 pm

        The thing that the death cult never wants to discuss is the cover provided for the men who rape these children by destroying the evidence of their crimes.

    I just have to say I’m very proud of our police. They are doing a good job of taking the crazy left-wing nuts, that is) off the streets.

    The only problem is, there’s so many more that need to be removed.

    • jdge1 July 8, 2022 / 1:23 pm

      Getting them off the street is only the first step and a losing one if the DA does not prosecute the criminals.

      • Jeremiah July 8, 2022 / 5:35 pm

        That’s true. Although, I was mainly referencing the ones they pronounce deceased on scene.

  3. Jeremiah July 7, 2022 / 12:56 am

    If seems the war is getting hotter, but it’s only the police fighting it.

      The parliamentary system is a better system.

    Back in the old days of B4B we had a regular commenter with the screen name OhioOrin. He was a black progressive with a similar demeanor to Fielding — kind of obnoxious, but not mean and nasty, and not really ideological. I wonder if he still views the Democrat Party as his benefactor and salvation.

    • fieldingclaymore July 7, 2022 / 3:01 pm

      Thanks for the backhanded and accurate compliment. LOL

      • Retired Spook July 7, 2022 / 5:00 pm

      The Democrat Party is just an on going mental health crisis. I’ve never seen so many confused, rudderless people.

      • Retired Spook July 7, 2022 / 10:24 pm

      • Cluster July 8, 2022 / 8:08 am

        Notice the absence of comment from our resident Biden voters. They must approve of this concerted effort by Democrats to eliminate women … as well as the attempted assassination of a SC Justice, the crime in inner cities, letting criminals out of jail, the destruction of federal buildings and small businesses, the open border death and chaos, and of course they have to be big fans of Hunter Biden so keep this in mind next time you feel the desire to “debate” them. I only prefer to mock, shame, and ultimately eliminate. The dialogue is over.

      • Retired Spook July 8, 2022 / 10:53 am

        I kind of enjoy messing with Fielding. Hes ovbiously not a very deep thinker; in fact I’ve often wondered if he’s not a bot. He never really says anything of consequence, just childish little attempted gotchas.

        I’d bet if we hired someone who specializes in analysis of writing styles/word use/sentence structure and had him/her analyze Forty’s posts and compare them to archived posts from trolls like Tryvasty, Simonee, RGRG2, Crewman, etc. we’d find that Forty has been here numerous times under numerous screen names. He also rarely says anything of consequence, and there’s little reason to engage him/her other than, as you say, to ridicule. Amazona, OTOH, loves to mess with trolls like Forty, and, quite frankly, I enjoy reading their exchanges.

      • Amazona July 8, 2022 / 2:29 pm

        These guys are so transparent, as they obediently quote the current narratives without ever offering an alternative. There must be some psychological component that makes some people incapable of being productive but convinces them that merely being bystanders to life who just snidely sneer and criticize is just as good—or better.

        We did get one silly pseudo-thought though—that the parliamentary system is “better”. Uh-huh. That must be why, in the golden years of our Republic when we were still governing according to our Constitution, so many people fled the parliamentary system of the United Kingdom for the opportunities and freedom of our own political model.

        These thought fragments, picked up in bits and pieces from various noisemakers on the Left, do pop up every now and then, but are clearly just feeble efforts to appear part of real discourse without actually saying anything.

        BW, I am very grateful to the trolls, annoying as they can be. It was the process of doing research to be able to intelligently and accurately address the inane comments they dumped here that led me to my deeper knowledge of, respect for and love of this nation and its original form of governance. That, combined with my long-standing study of the Left in its various ugly iterations around the world, has made me very intolerant of superficial posturing by Lefties who have merely been recruited by the Left to act as intellectual cannon fodder.

      • Cluster July 8, 2022 / 2:26 pm

        Amazona does have some great take downs. And you’re right, forty is just a rinse and repeat liberal

      • Tim July 8, 2022 / 6:50 pm

        It’s been a long time but I get a Thomas Grunberg vibe from fielding. Short and snippy blast from the past.

      • Cluster July 9, 2022 / 1:32 pm

        Wow, that’s going back a ways … where’s the pitchfork crew??

      • Retired Spook July 9, 2022 / 4:27 pm

        but are clearly just feeble efforts to appear part of real discourse without actually saying anything.

        That IS the hallmark of just about every Lefty who has ever posted here. I recall some of the epic threads, and after 20 comments from the same person, you’re wondering, what the hell does this guy believe? The person who really has this down to a science is Kamala Harris.

  5. Retired Spook July 8, 2022 / 1:23 pm

    At the risk of inviting more inane comments from the likes of Fielding and Forty, I’ve often wondered what drives people like them to comment on a Conservative site the way they do. Amazona speculates (and maybe rightly so) that it’s a malicious pathology that really has nothing to do with ideology. They rarely cite ideas and/or policies that they admire that are contrary to what the Conservatives and Libertarians here believe. They just nitpick on details, mostly details about people they don’t like. Eleanor Roosevelt must have had Fielding and Forty in mind when she famously said, “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.” They NEVER cite Liberals/Progressives they admire because of the strength of their character or the brilliance and practicality of their ideas. Just throwing that out there.

    One word for Biden…

    • Retired Spook July 8, 2022 / 2:07 pm

      It takes a lot anymore to get me to laugh out loud, but that did it.

    Got this from a family member today.

    Being 20 in the Seventies was a lot more fun than being 70 in the Twenties

    Kinda wish I was aware of that back then…

    • Cluster July 9, 2022 / 1:31 pm

      Good one

    • Jeremiah July 9, 2022 / 7:56 pm

      I agree. The thing about that here, is that Biden would turn the military on the people being the dictator minded he is.

      We could accomplish it here but I don’t want to say what it would take to accomplish it.

    • Mark Noonan July 9, 2022 / 10:55 pm

      The Global Ruling Class is made up of greedy cowards – they go just as soon as the people get mad enough. America will take a while…we’ve had peace for so long that rousing us is going to take real collapse.
