Blaska is voting for that bastard, Trump

And you don’t have to like it!

Donald Trump is his own worst enemy. He steps on his applause lines, he gets in the way of his message. He is a classic narcissist. His tank of human empathy reads “empty.” He’s that co-worker you avoid: never wrong and blaming everyone around him when things don’t go right. He lies like a bad toupee. The best leaders can laugh at themselves (“I forgot to duck.”) and show a little humility — even if it is faked. Not this guy. 

The head groundskeeper hereabouts does not know if he can take another four years of The Donald’s needy preening. Four years ago we were Never Trump despite being an alternate delegate to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. (Good times!)

This time around, we’re voting Trump/Pence, anyway!

Joe Biden is only a placeholder for Kamala, Corey, and crew. Bernie, A.O.C., Ilhan, and Pocan are not your father’s Democrats. Blaska knew (about) JFK growing up. Today’s Dems are no JFK, who was pro-growth, low-tax, anti-communist. (The economic tide rose under Donald Trump; it lifted all boats; Black unemployment was the lowest on record before the pandemic; America exports energy; 401(k)s are fat and sassy.)

Biden would cede sovereignty to unelected “experts” who would leverage the environment to determine economic, political, and social policy aka the Green New Deal. Rule by expert (they’re never wrong, right?) is the essence of progressivism.

Democrats’ platform boils down to more free stuff — some form of reparations, “free” college, and nationalized medicine. Speaking of Castro’s Cuba, we’re still waiting for the first liberal to call out the cancel culture. Invite Condoleezza Rice to your commencement exercise and then we’ll talk.

Margaret Thatcher said “democratic” socialism had a smell, that of uncollected garbage by striking workers. Today, it smells like fire-bombed dumpsters. You can also see socialism; it’s boarded up like State Street, Madison WI. It has a sound, F-bombers drowning out dissent.

The cult of victimhood

The Left is Portland, Baltimore, and Kenosha. It is blame, resentment, and grievance. Defund the cops, Derail the jail. Destroy the culture. Lock black kids in failing schools to placate the teachers union. The progressive project feeds on victimhood, like a wonkish Nosferatu. Blacks, women, even taxpayer-subsidized college students — all are victims of oppression! Aspiring martyrs like Jussie Smollett and Madison’s own Althea Bernstein fake victimhood to become heroes. What a twisted value system!

Foreign policy? Trump/Pence extinguished ISIS, rubbed out terrorists like Soleimani and al-Baghdadi (to the shrieks of MSNBC and the NY Times), recognized Jerusalem, brought Arab countries and Israel together, started no new wars, withdrew from old ones, and is holding China and Iran to account.

Democrats’ have politicized Covid-19. But while Trump was sealing off Wuhan’s contagion from the U.S., Democrats played the race card. Nancy Pelosi was walking arm in arm with Democrats into San Francisco’s Chinatown. No face masks, no social distancing.

You want irony?

Donald Trump is a tribune of the downtrodden working man — “the Deplorables” once claimed by the likes of Wm Jennings Bryan and Woody Guthrie. Trump is the antidote to the twisted histories of the professoriate, the sneering hubris of Hollywood, and virtue-signaling mainstream media elites who:

  • Defenestrated venial sinners like Al Franken in the #MeToo frenzy.
  • Crucified that kid from Covington Catholic high school for being White, Christian, and MAGA.
  • Promote drag queen story hour at the elementary school.

If you don’t agree, you’re a racist! We will not reward what David Harsanyi in National Review calls “the American Left’s extraordinary four-year descent into insanity.”

I’m sorry, I have a hard time taking etiquette lessons from people who can’t raise any ire over the Virginia governor’s casual description of euthanizing infants.

Will Donald Trump accept the results of next week’s election? Maybe when Democrats respect the results of 2016. How can Robert Mueller conclude “Russian Collusion” was a hoax and not be the least bit curious about who hoaxed? Unless his team was riven with Obama/Clinton deep-state holdovers like Peter Strzok. (“We’ll stop Trump.”) Impeach over a telephone call? Are you kidding! 

Democrats who put the electron microscope to Brett Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook pretend — with the connivance of a curiously un-curious news media — there’s nothing to see on Hunter Biden’s laptop. Now they will pack the court to get what they cannot legislate.

Blaska’s Bottom LineMaybe this time the arrogant Left will learn its lesson.

For whom are YOU voting?

  1. I’m voting strictly on policy, absolutely nothing else in the 2020 Presidential election.

    I didn’t vote for Trump or Clinton in 2016 because I thought they were both the worst that their party had to offer and a lose-lose regardless of which person sat in the Oval Office. What the last four years has shown me is that the personality and character of the person on the Oval Office is damn near irrelevant to getting things done in the political bubble of Washington DC. Trump is a terrible person to be in the Oval Office in all respects other than actually getting things done for the American people and striving for peace in the world. Regardless of President Trumps personality and character failures, he has accomplished a lot in the USA and around the world.

    I may never vote for a person over policy again when it comes to the President of the United States.

      Good thing Trump trumps hate and substance still rules over style. I’ve little patience for the perpetually-offended special snowflakes clutching their collective PC pearls and loooking for the fainting couches because 16 years ago Trump said that loose Lefty women woould allow you to grab them by their p*****s.

    “His tank of human empathy reads ’empty.'”
    I don’t agree at all. Yes, his narcism is over the top, but I agree with one of your posters who mentioned a while ago that he “has a big heart.” When I first heard of the guy in the 80’s, I just dismissed him as a bad joke. That changed after he first ran for president and I took the time to really dig into who he is. Numerous interviews with both him and people he’s worked with over the years, etc, etc. You ever notice how those who have actually worked with him and yet come out in personal attacks against his character are nearly always aligned with the Deep State?

    What the establishment hates about him is that he is not a phony, he has enough money to not be bought or intimidated by anyone, and he is a FIGHTER. His four years of battle has shown to the average American just how corrupt the establishment has become……including nearly all of the “progressive” or “leftist” media at this point. We’ve been living on borrowed time and it can’t go on forever. But IMO Trump’s accomplishment is truly historic in clearly exposing the deep levels of corruption within our media and government, together with a lack of empathy or TDS-induced ignorance in the average (usually entitled) people who hate him the most.

      Well stated, Amos!

      I had no idea how deeply the corruption ran in the federal government until I started paying better attention to Trump. No wonder Trump is hated so much.

      I’m amazed at the president’s tenacity. After all the attacks and impeachment and Russia nonsense, and not knowing whom to trust, he’s still out there fighting for us.

      I’m also proud of the people. Despite media’s blatant bias and big tech’s censoring, the truth is still getting out there, and people are waking up. There are of course those with some form of TDS who will probably never get it, but I think it’s safe to say that Trump has awakened a giant.

    To your litany of the left’s sins you might want to add the toxic sludge of identity politics they’ve been ramming down our throats for the last 40 years–the source of so many other sins.

      I was referred to an article on written by Karlyn Borysenko on February 11, 2020 the article is titles, “After Attending a Trump Rally, I Realized Democrats Are Not Ready For 2020“. The article is a unique perspective that shows us a clear view, from the eyes of someone who’s lived it, of the disturbing popular 21st century societal trends of bigotry and hate within the Democratic Party (it’s not limited to the Democratic Party) and how those two things blind those it consumes.

        He could never have gotten to where he is without those qualities–or a damn good simulation of them. It’s the partisan, humorless media that perpetrates this lie along with about ten thousand others about Trump’s personality. He couldn’t have succeeded in popular culture or politics without empathy and a sense of humor–often self-deprecating or ironic–a quality the literal-minded drones in the MSM couldn’t recognize if they tripped over it. Meanwhile they try to convinice us that a senile, washed-up old blowhard like JB is the very embodiment of statesmanship and vision.

    The Washington Party gave us both Bushes, Kerry, Romney, both Clintons and Obama. Our foreign policy has sucked since it the State Dept. took it over. Our military is wasted to enrich the Pentagon. Our manufacturing was shipped to China and Mexico. Our educational system is an epic failure. There are no government budgets.

    Biden is a Washington denizen for 47 years and voted against the liberation of Kuwait FOR the invasion of Iraq, AGAINST the Surge that won it FOR the withdrawal that lost it. This is all when he was coherent.

    You know who Senator Tammy LGBTQWERTY, Pooky Pocan, Satyaphatassdown, Ismael Ozanne, Progressive Dane and the rest of the Progressive Industrial Complex are all voting for and against.

    Heck David, you harken back to JFK, how about even the party of Tip O’Neill. What congressional democrat party would even work with the opposition parties president like the democrats did with Reagan. The gaps between parties were much smaller. His ability to keep working at everything at once, in mass chaos, and to constantly be pushing entrenched Republicans to start carrying their weight and start doing instead of being all talk and no action. All the while swatting away a millions mosquitos attacks from for the last 4 years has been nothing short of miraculous. He is the only person who gets stronger the more he is attacked.

    I did not vote for Trump and yet I feel that he is still going to win this election. Why? Because of posts like this. I didn’t vote for him because I can’t stand his rhetoric about women. He’s everybody’s sleazy uncle and I’ve got a few of them in my family. They give me the creeps and I don’t want someone like that as President. On the other hand, I do like his rhetoric about having a strong country that works for everyone. He doesn’t play identity politics, which is one of the big things that I’ve grown to hate about the democratic party and why I may defect. Everybody wants their piece of the action and I believe that they already have it. This country is big enough to allow everyone a chance to succeed if you work hard and persevere. Uncle Joe will have his work cut out for him if he wants to keep the country moving forward if he wins. He will have the BLM folks screaming down his neck and that will not bode well for the police in this country. We need to support our police, which is another reason why I’m disgruntled with the Democrats. Who would have thought that it was cool to hate on the police? Yes, they need to improve, but not at the expense of runaway crime and downtown mayhem. They need to be able to do their jobs, not be hamstrung by the overly woke. Somewhere the middle ground of the Democratic party has been usurped by the far left. Lord help us. If Trump wasn’t such a doofus, I’d probably vote for him.

      “I didn’t vote for him because I can’t stand his rhetoric about women. He’s everybody’s sleazy uncle and I’ve got a few of them in my family. They give me the creeps and I don’t want someone like that as President.”

      Cutting through the media-created false narrative, can you tell me where this rhetoric and attitude can actually be substantiated? I did due diligence before voting for him in 2016 and just could not find it at all. On the contrary, I especially remember an interview with one of his top executives who said that she would never have been given the opportunities she got with Trump had she been working with most other corporations. Sorry can’t find a link right now, if indeed YT or G hasn’t long ago disappeared it.
      But I did find another one which is well worth watching:

      Note, BTW, that in a DC world full of sleazy sexual assaults on women/girls, Trump has NEVER been seriously charged with credible allegations of this kind of behavior. Doesn’t this speak volumes more than anything else? Also, remember what he did immediately after he found out about the accusations against Jeffrey Epstein? Contrast that with all those enemies of Trump………..

      Of course, I’m open to correction if you can provide real evidence. Thanks.


      • almostarepublican says:

        His words are all I need to prove that he’s a sleaze ball. He’s said things about his own daughter that tell me his boundaries are poor. He used to walk into the dressing rooms at the Miss Universe Pageant and look at women. All proven. I know that many women have accused him of things, but I don’t know the details. I don’t need to. I know enough to form my opinion of him. Nuff said.

        • You’re making this way too easy to pick apart.

          A Voice in the Wilderness wrote, “Steve: Check the Access Hollywood conversation under discussion.”

          You’re relatively new here so I’ll give you a break on that one, but just this once. I did check the conversation, both the audio and the written transcript, before I wrote that, that’s what I do before I state that something is a fact.

          A Voice in the Wilderness wrote, ““Predilection” was the word I used in my post, closely related to the word “can”.”

          Are you actually attempting to out Spoon the Witherspoon? No, you damn fool, the word “predilection” is not closely related to the word “can”!

          Predilection: a preference or special liking for something; a bias in favor of something.

          There is nothing in any definition I can find that states or implies “can”. You’re not just wrong, you’re verifiably wrong. Check your facts before you write nonsense.

          A Voice in the Wilderness wrote, “In that same reveal, in reference to beautiful women, DT says, “I LIKE to grab ’em and kiss ’em”.”

          You can’t even quote that correctly after telling me that I should “check the Access Hollywood conversation under discussion”! Maybe you should check the conversation under discussion before you try to quote. What Donald Trump actually said is, “I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.” That sir is how you accurately quote someone. Donald Trump’s brash locker room banter is crude and sophomoric.

          Joe Biden has been shown to actually grab women and young girls, engage in unwanted touching, shoves his head in their hair presumably to sniff it and whisper sweet nothings in their ears, and some of these women/girls literally cringe and pull away from him. Joe Biden does it in front of cameras too, there’s photographic evidence of what the #MeToo crowd has openly labeled as “sexual assault” (any unwanted touching) and justified their “canceling”. Where’s that #MeToo crowd now, I don’t see these partisan hypocrites trying to cancel Joe Biden?

          A Voice in the Wilderness wrote, “One assumes DT wasn’t talking about dogs.”

          Keep it up fool.

          A Voice in the Wilderness wrote, “My post is accurate.”

          Nope, your post was false and I’ve proven that fact. You doubling down on your claim after it has been proven false is very troll like.

          A Voice in the Wilderness wrote, “It is not “spin”, one of your favorite buzzwords.”

          One of my “favorite buzzwords”, nonsense. Where the hell do you get that nonsense from? I just search my archive and counted the number of times I’ve used the word “spin” on Blaska’s blog in the context I used it here and here is the results; I’ve used the word “spin” in the same context 12 times since I first came on the Blaska’s blog. I’ve been part of 314 separate comment threads. I’ve written many multiple comments in each of those 314 threads. So I’ve used the word “spin” in that context in 3.82% of the threads I’ve been part of. It is very rare that I ever post one comment on a thread and conversations tend to be long because of a few of the internet trolls roaming around here so I’m going to average my comments per thread to three (it’s probably higher than that), so that calculates out to a usage of 1.27%. That sir doesn’t sound like a favorite buzzword to me.

          Support your claim that “spin” is one of my favorite buzzwords or retract your lie.
