On the Eve of the US Elections

Tomorrow the US will elect a new President. Well, tomorrow is when they’ll vote; in all likelihood we won’t know the official result until December after all the legal challenges are concluded in every state where the margin of victory was a percentage point or two of the popular vote. That is, unless Trump badly underperforms the current polling and loses by a solid margin in Florida, which is the key tipping point state – Trump cannot win the election if he doesn’t win Florida. But right now it looks like he’s even odds to win that state but it won’t be by much, maybe one or two points; in which case expect the recount saga of 2000 repeated all over again if those state’s 29 electoral votes are the difference between either President Trump or President Clinton.

That said, find something else to watch on TV Tuesday night, Clinton will win the election.  She has a better overall organization and Republicans have underperformed the polls the past couple of elections because they don’t have the ground game to get the vote to the polls.   All the Hollywood elites, media, academics and public sector unions, the unelected left-wing cabal that steers the discourse in the West can breathe easier.

The question will then become – how violent is this going to get? What am I talking about?

See this clip from last Friday’s Bill Maher show… he more or less apologizes on behalf of the Left for their demonization of John McCain and Mitt Romney, the latter being a perfectly decent man, a moderate Republican but who was still compared to Hitler. We have our own example here in Canada where a very milquetoast and overly-cautious Stephen Harper was called a “fascist” on a regular basis, and when he was defeated last year the left-wing cabal were almost orgasmic in their celebrations. But Maher and the others in the clip are essentially saying, “All those other times we told you the Republicans were fascists… well we were exaggerating, but this time – this time – it’s true! It really, really is!”

We all know who Lena Dunham is… a talentless Hollywood darling and devoutly evil person who lied about being raped to make a good story for her book. Well, here she is in this clip obnoxiously pushing for her girl Hillary, or how about this clip where she (and her father, a man who made his living painting pictures of women’s breasts) says that white males should be made extinct. Do they say this stuff just to make their peers laugh and score brownie points with their fellow brain-dead leftists, or do they really believe white male babies should be aborted? Do they believe in eugenics? Because that’s evil, or do they not realize that? Oh wait, what are we talking about – they believe in an evil ideology that has produced more suffering than any other ideology in history, of course they realize they’re being evil.

Here is the thing… there is a cycle in our local, provincial/state, national politics… we elect leftists because that’s where our natural, romantic tendencies trend as a people – we all dream of a more inclusive and tolerant world, one that protects the vulnerable and promotes social and natural harmony. But the left think this type of world can be created by fiat and they, after a time, just go too far, their agendas get hijacked by special interests groups and the bills for their plans need to get paid… and then people push the reset button and elect conservatives to clean up the inevitable mess and do what conservatives do – provide balance, stability and rational government.  David Miller was a horrible mayor of Toronto; cue Rob Ford.  Bob Rae, horrible premier of Ontario, bring in Mike Harris.  Paul Martin weak and ineffective Liberal, bring in Stephen Harper.  Jimmy Carter a weak President brings in Ronald Reagan.  It’s going to happen here in Ontario, finally, Wynne out, Brown in.  Give it a few years and Trudeau will be trounced circa 2024 when it becomes abundantly clear that he’s bankrupted Canada.  The pendulum swings back and forth; the left has good intentions but makes a mess of it, conservatives come in and clean up said mess, the left comes back and says we’ve learned our lessons and will be more reasonable this time, left get back into power but forget the lessons soon enough, and on it goes.  Wash, rinse, repeat ad infinitum.

But this time we face a bigger more modern problem in that we are dealing with the crap that the aforementioned unelected cultural leftists are dumping on us; in their recent emboldened moral vanity they now call conservatives stupid and bigoted, they insist on gutting the economy in a futile effort to stop global warming, they want to force you to call people “zie” and suggest white males are a cancer in the world to be cut out, they want a segregated society with different rules for every identity group and apologize for being the West.

Trump is a result of all this. But what people will realize after this election is that what they want is to hit the reset button on the culture, and not necessarily the politics. As the expression goes “politics is downstream of culture”. After Trump is defeated, after Brexit is delayed or quashed by courts in England, after we get a Bill C-16 here in Canada making it illegal to call someone “he” or “her” without their consent or a carbon tax that will slow the economy down during a recession, a large segment of the population in the West is going to start casting their eyes higher, at the culture that produces the unelected leftist cabal.

A positive outlook would be to say, hey – the “long arc of history” as Obama likes to describe it shows that there is a cycle and things will self-correct.  Bu the more cynical outlook would say there are only three things that affect cultural change; demographics, violent conflict and technology. And two out of the three are largely beyond doing anything about. It’s going to be a rocky road the next few years.

On the First Debate

Memo to the Donald J. Trump for President Campaign:

Well, that was disappointing.

First, raise the microphone up so Mr. Trump stops leaning forward to speak.  He is trying to appeal to married women, that’s your swing voter.  Leaning forward to blurt answers comes across as aggressive.  Aggressive = not good.  Mr. Trump needs to look stately; stand up tall, keep movement to a minimum, talk to the camera when you speak and not Hillary or the moderator.  Speak to the American people.

Second, get rid of the split screen.  Mr. Trump is a tall man with stature.  She is a dumpy old woman.  People subconsciously associate stature and presence with leadership.  The split screen not only erased that advantage you had, but also allowed the camera to show your every strange wince and expression.  Why did Mr. Trump find it so hard to sip water?  He needs to practice drinking.

Your candidate is a horrible debater.  He tends to overuse words like “tremendous”, and “beautiful” when he’s trying to think of things to say.  His ramblings border on incoherent and he seems incapable of finishing an answer.  Besides prescribing him some Ritalin before the next debate to help focus his mind, perhaps he would do well to memorize some stock answers to expected questions like Hillary did.  For example;

On the issue of cyber-security:

“Your asking Secretary Clinton about cyber-security?  That’s rich.  The FBI report on Secretary Clinton’s emails and private server said that her server had been hacked by foreign agents.  Multiple times.  How much classified material was lifted by hackers Secretary Clinton?  What happened to the multiple cell phones that you lost but never reported?  The FBI report says that you clicked on a phishing email… for real?  Which one?  The one about the Nigerian prince with millions in a bank account?  Or the one about a free time-share in Costa Rica?  Why would anyone listen to you on cyber-security?  Unless it’s maybe advice on how to delete 33,000 emails.”

On the issue of not revealing his tax returns:

“You know why I haven’t revealed my tax returns?  Because I have done what every other smart rich person does; hire the best accountants and lawyers and instruct them find ways for me to pay as little tax as possible.  Does that make me unpatriotic?  No, it makes me smart.  And it makes me no different than your friends in Hollywood, the George Clooneys of the world throwing $10 million dollar fundraising dinners for you and Obama, but have homes in Switzerland because that’s where they hide their money away from US taxes.  I want to cut taxes on the wealthy because I don’t want rich people to have to hide their money or take it overseas, I want them to repatriate it.  Contrast that with your plan Secretary Clinton, to raise taxes even more on the wealthy.  It’s a fraud.  You won’t raise money for free tuition and all the other wonderful things  you want to spend money on… all you’re going to do is drive more money and investment out of the country.”

On his apparent support for the Iraq war in 2002:

“I wasn’t a politician in 2003.  I was a business man.  I am allowed to muse in public on whether or not the war was a good thing.  Perhaps I may have said that it sounded like a good idea to me at the time.  But you know what?  I rely on my elected representative to lead on those types of issues.  And you know who was my senator for the state of New York in 2003?   It was you, Secretary, or should I say, Senator Clinton, and you voted for the Iraq war.”

After Hillary speaks to the US allies to reassure them:

“That, Secretary Clinton, is an example of why you don’t get it.  You are more worried about talking to, and reassuring people in other countries than you are about reassuring the American people that we aren’t going to be asked to police the world while other countries, our supposed allies, freeload and fail to pay their fair share or honour their military commitments to our alliances.”

These are some examples.  Please feel free to contact us for help with more stock responses with regards to Black Lives Matter, race riots, accusations of sexism etc.

Yours sincerely,

On Voting for the Trump

If I were American, I would vote for Donald Trump.

Yes, he’s scumbag.  I’ve written plenty here about how he’s not a conservative, he’s not a decent or humble person, he’s a rich narcissist and unlikely to solve any of the problems the US has at the moment.  I think his ideas of building a wall, deporting 11 million people, banning all Muslim immigration; canceling free trade deals… they’re all crap ideas.

And no, it’s not a lesser of two evils thing, even though Hillary Clinton is a pretty deplorable character as far as that goes… she’s the very definition of a political “insider”, guilty of corruption and treasonous behavior, enabler to her husband’s many sins and a chronic liar.

No, the reason I would vote for Donald Trump is that this is clearly not an ideological election.  This is not a contest of the ideas of the right vs. the ideas of the left.  Trump is not ideological, nor is Clinton.  They speak to elements of their parties, but they don’t represent either party’s predominant ideology.  Thus, when choosing between the two you need a different reason to pick one or the other.  Character is a wash and neither truly represents a “side” in the political or cultural wars.

So, what I like about Trump is that his enemies are for the most part, people I despise.  That’s pretty much the summation of my reason for voting for him.  An “enemy of my enemy is my friend”, sort of deal.  I don’t really want to see him as POTUS.  I’m not a nihilist that wants to burn it all down and rebuild from the bottom up.  But there is a group of people out there who if Trump wins, their heads would quite literally explode – and I would LOVE to see that.  I would vote for him quite simply because I like the enemies he’s made.  Well done.

Take for example this stupid twat, Jill Soloway, who wins an Emmy award and promptly uses the opportunity to compare Donald Trump to Hitler:

“He’s a complete dangerous monster, and any moment I have to call Trump out to being an inheritor to Hitler, I will,” she said, to applause.

Or how about when Donald Trump has the temerity to call the Chelsea bombing a “bombing” before it was actually declared a bombing.  Horrors, he got it right.  It’s well reported now that CNN and MSNBC edited Hillary Clinton calling it a “bombing” before the police said that was what it was.    That’s the other part of the equation – most people HATE the media.

Then there’s the outrage – OUTRAGE!  That Jimmy Fallon would dare to have Trump on his show and make small talk with the man.  He ruffled his hair!?!  Oh my God, man… would you ask to ruffle the mustache of Hitler?

Then there’s Bono claiming that Donald Trump is possibly America’s “worst idea” ever.  Idiot, stick to your music.   The US has had slavery, civil war, McCarthy-ism, Jim Crowe and so many other bad ideas that nominating Donald Trump for President doesn’t even make the top 20.

It’s to the point where I am reminded of this interview several years back Michael Coren (before he went traitor to the cause) and the wonderful Melanie Phillips. She starts at the 2:00 mark discussing how conservative thinking is demonized, but what he says at 4:40ish is also what Ross Douthat is getting at in this column; approximately 35-40% of the population sit at home and are beaten over the head, day after day, and told that what they believe is wrong. What they believe is not just wrong – it’s evil. They are mocked as being racist, bigoted and stupid. So, one of two things can be the outcome when a large chunk of the population is dismissed as “deplorables”; either these people surrender and “convert” or they go underground but find different ways to vent when the opportunity comes. Like the Brexit vote. Like Donald Trump. These are not votes for something. Rather these are votes to stick it to the elites that have been belittling them.

I don’t know if Donald Trump can win.  It doesn’t look likely.  Conceivably he could get more of the popular vote than Hillary Clinton and still lose because she’s got the black and suburban soccer mom votes sewed up in the key states.  But imagine if he did.  No, no – don’t imagine the nukes on North Korea or billions spent on a ridiculous second coming of the Great Wall.  Worry about that later.  Instead, just imagine John Oliver, Samantha Bee, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, 99% of Hollywood and the mainstream press… imagine them staring aghast at the TV screen as the results roll in.   That might be reason enough for me.

On The Donald

Let’s get this out of the way; Donald Trump is not a conservative.  He’s a liberal.

  • He’s a protectionist, who is opposed to free trade.
  • He’s used government mechanisms to expropriate properties for his development projects.
  • He’s benefited from doing business in government closed markets and highly regulated industries (casinos).
  • He’s pro-choice and been married 3 times.  Seriously, when’s the last time  that you think he’s been in a church of any kind of his own volition?
  • He’s donated to Democrats in the past, including Hillary Clinton when she ran for Senator in New York.  He’s explained that away as “the cost of doing business” i.e. he’s operated in those areas of our economy where greasing politicians for favours or influence is seen as normal.   Doing so is tacit acceptance that government has a role in picking winners and losers in business, which conservatives should reject.

And that’s just off the top of our head.  So the fact that he may win the Republican nomination is just further indication of conservatism’s ongoing fall from grace.  This is not the man to arrest the fall.  At best he is a Traditionalist in the old Tory vein, but when your big government proclivities don’t overlap with libertarians and result in a strong advocacy of free markets, then you’re a crony capitalist, just like every Russian or Arab oligarch that got obscenely rich by government largess and uses government to crush competition.

And when you cross a liberal with an anti-immigrant/nationalist you get… a fascist.

Next post we’ll discuss then why, in view of what Donald Trump is and represents, Kevin O’Leary is a bad idea for Canadian politics.
