So, the senile, old crook gets installed tomorrow. Big deal. He won’t be in charge. Also: saw a photo of him atop an MSM article lauding him to the skies. So, this was the best they could find…he looked very old. Not to put too fine a point on it, he looks like my Dad did a few months before he went. I don’t give Joe much time.
Its going to be a miserable four years in politics because, really, no one is going to be minding the store. Even if Kamala gets in, she’ll be entirely out of her depth and ruled by the last advisor she speaks to. We’ll drift along from crisis to crisis while the MSM pretends all is well as it continues to stir up the pot against “right wing extremists”. I just hope we don’t get into a war. No chance we’ll actually win any war that this bunch gets us into.
The GOP should easily take Congress in 2022 but there’s a huge question mark out there: lots of people are furious at the GOP for not standing firmly behind Trump. Even in defeat, he’s leaving the GOP stronger than it was in 1977, 1993 and 2009. And not just a little – by quite a lot. Lost in all the hustle is that the Democrats only barely “won” 2020. And at the State level, they were crushed. A bit of wisdom and courage and the GOP would easily pick up 50+ House seats next year. But wisdom and courage are lacking. OTOH, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and a few others are standing tall. We’ll see how it comes out.
Do be careful what you say – the Deep State will be looking for people to make an example of. I’ve warned people of this on line. Don’t go shooting your mouth off. Not worth the trouble it would bring. Just work to get people who are really with us into office and pressure GOP officeholders for election reform. That is the way to win.
I’ve been writing at a blinding pace. Now more than 10,000 words into my sixth novel. Four and Five will come out at intervals this year. Six probably a year from now. I expect I’ll have Seven ready later this year and then I’ll start Eight. I think it wise that if you have something you love doing, go and do it. Sort of tune out the day to day in national affairs. It won’t do you any good to pay too close attention to the particular horrors the Biden crew will inflict on us. Pick your battles and place pressure as necessary on our guys when something really crucial comes up (gun control, illegal immigration, that sort of thing).
Keep the faith. Say your prayers. Work for victory.
The Experts are still talking up how Trump is doomed…but:
The Republican National Committee (RNC) continues to bring in lots of money thanks to the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
The RNC’s fundraising platform has brought in over $30 million in three months since it launched in June. Officials credit the impeachment inquiry.
That’s a lot of scratch…and while we can’t say for certain what it means, the fact that its happening does say that Trump and the GOP are popular somewhere in the country. Trump is already teeing up general election ads and its more than 13 months from election day…and Democrats won’t get started on a general election campaign for at least five months. You ask anyone who really does politics and if he gets to pick which situation he’s in, he’s going to pick Trump’s.
Meanwhile, our Matt takes note other another aspect of it:
Democrat Senators from red states have expressed concern that the impeachment process started by Nancy Pelosi “may spin out of control and destroy any chance their party might have of winning back the majority next year,” according to a report from The Hill. These Democrats believe that if their party doesn’t act quickly, Trump could “turn the tables on them.”
Would Manchin or, especially, Jones (who is up for re-election next year in a Trump +30 State) really vote to convict?
In case you were wondering how our liberals are dealing with things:
Recently, I went to dinner at the home of Rebecca Kee, a preschool principal in San Francisco who turned to Maddow in her depression and confusion over the 2016 election. I brought a bottle of rosé, and she poured it into glasses decorated with charms that featured Russia-investigation figures on one side and characters from “Star Trek: The Next Generation” on the other. I sipped from the Hope Hicks/Beverly Crusher glass, and we watched Maddow’s show over veggie enchiladas. “I think of her as a news doula: You know the news is going to be painful no matter what, so we might as well have someone who helps us survive it,” Kee told me. Last year, Kee had a Maddow-themed birthday party, at which her friends and her two young sons put on big black glasses and slicked their hair to the side. Also in attendance was a life-size cardboard cutout of Maddow, which is now in storage so as not to startle guests.
These people have lost it. If we don’t win next year, then we deserve every bit of what’s coming to us.
Report indicates that red meat isn’t all that bad for you – which is another “of course”. The campaign against red meat – like previous campaigns against eggs or coffee – were ridiculous efforts by various puritan scolds who got fixated on a thing and then tried to force us all to go along. The key to human diet is moderation – eat the red meat; have the cake; drink the beer…but don’t eat ten pounds of red meat a day; don’t have the whole cake; after two or three beers, ease off. We’re built – by God or Nature, take your pick – to eat pretty much everything there is. My view is that we must have a varied diet to be healthy. To tell anyone to entirely eliminate a food or heavily concentrate on only one thing seems to me rather insane.
