If we could turn back time we would have re-elected #41

Attention Robin Vos and Scott Fitzgerald: you are wrecking the brand with your rewriting the election. Republicans are the good-government people, remember? You cannot turn back time. This is no time for scorched earth.

What voter fraud?

Time to acknowledge that the “myth of voter fraud” is, itself, a Democrat(ic) myth: (from CNN, of all sources!): 

As North Carolina officials investigate allegations that absentee ballots were tampered with in a tight congressional race, a review of some of those ballots revealed many were signed by the same small group of people — some of whom are connected to a longtime operative working for the Republican candidate’s campaign.

North Carolina requires witnesses to sign absentee ballots. Usually, those witnesses are family members or friends. But a set of 161 absentee ballots for the 9th Congressional District obtained by CNN on Monday showed that the same nine people signed at least 10 absentee ballots each.

Deep Thoughts

What happened to the light when I turned off the wall switch? Where did that light go? Einstein could probably tell me, not that we would understand. But what is time (really)?

Scientist Joseph Palazzo suggests that motion is fundamental and time is a convenient mental construct devised to measure motion. His book is Everything is matter moving through space. Which, if we understand, means that the light from that wall switch is back there.

Quote of the day — from  James Parker in a NY Times review of the autobiography of Roger Daltrey (he of The Who)Thanks a lot, Mr. Kibblewhite. It’s dedicated to his abusive British headmaster. (Aren’t they all?)

God bless the evil headmasters: the deformers, the belittlers, the squashers of dreams, the ones who leave their oppressed subjects in such a condition of churning anonymous rage that the only possible remedy, post-school, is greatness. 

For some reason, we hear Emma Lazarus in that.

Even the NY Times gets the connection! Maurice Isserman in his NY Times review of Wasn’t That a Time, a chronicle of the proto-folk group, The Weavers, which included that commie shill Pete Seeger.

[The author] asserts that there was never a case of Soviet espionage that “bore any connections to the American Communist Party,” something no serious history of the party maintains after three decades of post-cold war revelations from archives in Moscow and Washington.

The politics of hate from our … acquaintances

At least they are being true to type. That would be the socialists at The Nation, which spews this kind of agitprop the day before #41’s funeral:

George H.W. Bush, icon of the WASP establishment

— and of brutal US Repression in the Third World;
Obituaries have transformed the terror that Bush inflicted,
depicting it as heroism. 

Hear the casual class warfare? One Nation reader tries to link #41 to the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan! (“He and Barbara invited John’s parents to dinner in their home the night before John Hinckley …”) Nice going, Nation readers. We expect nothing less of you. No, we’re not going to link this crap.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: The Nation and the hard Left have never forgiven Bush for bringing down the Berlin Wall.

    I will say that in 2010, the Dems brand wasn’t tarnished for their supporters when they tried to break someone out of prison for their lame duck session. Why are Republicans always held to a different purity standard?? And the will of the people thwarted? Didn’t Republicans strengthen their control in the Senate and lost one seat in the Assembly?

      “ ‘Time to acknowledge that the ‘myth of voter fraud’ is, itself, a Democrat(ic) myth’ ”

      Do tell!

      Let’s take a look at what happened with formerly employed Lefties, Scottie Foval & Bobby Creamer when they chose to thought that idiot Lefties (forgive the redundancy) would believe that voter fraud was/is a myth.

      To wit:

      Foval: “It’s a very easy thing for Republicans to say they’re bussing people in. Well you know what? We’ve been bussing people in to deal with you f****n’ assholes for fifty years and WE’RE NOT GOING TO STOP NOW. WE’RE JUST GOING TO FIND A DIFFERENT WAY TO DO IT. (bolds/caps mine)

      “I think backwards from how they would prosecute if they could, and then try to build out the method to avoid that,” (Foval) says about organizing voter fraud by bringing people from state to state to vote illegally. “Let’s just say, in theory, if a major investigation came up of major vote fraud that way, how would they prove it? And who would they charge? Are they going to charge each individual with voter fraud? Or are they going to go after the facilitator for conspiracy, which they could prove? It’s one thing if all these people drive up in their personal cars. If there’s a bus involved, that changes the dynamic… You can prove conspiracy if there’s a bus, but if there are cars, it is much harder to prove.”

      Oh my gunny sacks (H/T @GOOD DOG HAPPY MAN) couldn’t have happened to a couple of nicer Lefty morons (forgive the redundancy)

      “Scott Foval and Robert Creamer, two little-known but influential Democratic political operatives, have left their jobs after video investigations by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action found Foval entertaining dark notions about how to win elections. Foval was laid off Monday by Americans United for Change, where he had been national field director; Creamer announced Tuesday night that he was ‘stepping back’ from the work he was doing for the unified Democratic campaign for Hillary Clinton.”

      It gets worse.

      Lefty miscreant Bobby Creamer was a WH guest over 340 times, 47 of those with a personal audience with the self-anointed 4th Greatest President EVAH who was tasked with overseeing the Most Transparent Administration EVAH!

      Oh my!! Someone involved with voter fraud was a regular Hopey Changey WH visitor? That has a certain redolence to it, am I right?

      Voter fraud? We don’t got no stinkin’ voter fraud!

      Ah Lefty, so MUCH voter fraud, so little time!

    It’s been a shameful couple days for the WI GOP, and yet just a quick mention of it and then on to the heady topic of whether light has mass (it does).
    And I remember just a few days ago, on this very site, Dave said that all of this was a moot point because Governor Walker was too much of a statesman to ever sign any of it into law.
    ‘When someone shows you who they are, believe them’. This is behavior beyond the pale, and I would hope that we all as fellow citizens concerned with good government would call it what it is.
    Let’s see what our ‘statesman’ Governor will do. For the good of our State, I hope he surprises me and lives up to Dave’s confidence in him.

    Another error is Abob’s post mortem on the recent mid terms. He went from all in on the Blue Wave of Trump hatred to fewer lost house seats than the historical average and an increase in Republicans in the senate. He and Wile E. poor richard and O’Ballsy saw zero Trump Derangement out side the MSM and usual Progressive bed wetters. And wondered.
    And yes, the attempted lynching of Brett Kavanaugh helped the GOP. Ask Kamala Harris. Spartacus Booker et al.
    The Dems are just pathetic with no message and no messenger. The Clintons road trip is as effective as Hillary’s campaign launch in “a van. Down by the river campaign.”
    See Camille Paglia’s interview today as she sees her Democrat Party.
    Meanwhile President Trump resets some semblance of free trade, Gets China to reduce fentanyl production, forces Pierre Trudeau to sign the new NAFTA, and watches the eco elites of Paris burning.

      Splat and his optimism in the face of reality never fails to impress me. But it’s pretty obvious which party is corrupt from bottom to top. Take the legislature: even Sheldon Lubar, along with Dave, is embarrassed by their latest stomp-on-democracy-and-the-will-of-the-voters GOP power grab. Then there’s Trump, his family and his cabinet: ever see such corrupt, personal, money-grubbing greed by hacks at the top? Thankfully the Dems now have control of one house to shed some light on The Trump Swamp. We can quibble over the size of the Blue Wave, but it was there. Forty seats? Not the biggest swing, but the average midterm loss for the party in power is 30 seats (sorry about all that reality stuff, again, Splat). And where were those seats lost? That’s what really has conservatives unnerved. Buh-bye, suburban women. Who needs that bloc? 2020 will be even worse for the GOP with a Presidential race. While it’s interesting that Splat hangs on the words of a lefty feminist like Camille Paglia, there’s plenty of time for things to shake out for the Dems before 2020. It’s nice to see so many Dems interested in running against Trump. Just like Walker had a ton of Dems vie to challenge him. That worked out well. Meanwhile, Trump quips he’s “a tariff guy” and the stock market tanks – well played, sir! And yes, we’ll always have Russia; already lots of illegal campaigning and treason on display and convictions in the books, with more to come. Like Splat, I’m an optimist.
