About last night

Two cheers for divided government!

One takes solace where he can find it. Wisconsin, as the Werkes predicted, narrowly fell to Joe Biden, who looks to be the next President, as we also predicted. Not that this thing doesn’t have weeks to play out, courts to convene, and commentators to comment. Donald Trump fought like a Marine, did helluva lot better than predicted, but we think he is toast.

Map of U.S.

The electoral map 202 created by Ol’ Sparky

A blessing in disguise? (“At the moment, very well disguised,” Winston Churchill lamented after a defeat.) The head groundskeeper will stray from the plantation to suggest that, going forward, my political party can prosper from the policy prescriptions of Donald Trump without his maddening, unpredictable solar eruptions. Thanks to Trump, the Republican party has become the party of the working man and woman, newly averse to foreign adventurism, constitutionally sound, the friend of the police officer on the beat, respecting religion and social mores, refusing to play identity politics.

The headline in Politico provides succor: Biden looks screwed even if he wins.” It looks like Mitch McConnell will continue to lead a majority of Republicans in the U.S. Senate. That bodes well for blocking Biden/Kamala Harris’ more extreme judicial appointments and redistribution. And for continuing investigations into Clapper/Comey/Brennan-style corruption.

Because Democrats seriously under-performed across the country. They flipped only two seats — Cory Gardner in Colorado and Martha McSally in Arizona (as we and virtually everyone predicted) — despite an expanded battleground map and a massive cash advantage, as Politico observes.

That’s the other big take-away from Election 2020money doesn’t buy electoral happiness. Lindsay Graham’s opponent raised $57 million during the third quarter alone — twice as much as Graham had raised in the previous six quarters combined. Democrats threw $100 million at Mitch McConnell’s challenger. To no avail. Democrats had what the New York Times called a “stunning fund-raising advantage.”

Meanwhile, in Pelosi-ville

Democrats failed to pick up the 10 to 20 seats forecast. Indeed, it appears Republicans will actually add to their 198 while the Democrats lose a few of their 232 seats. Former UW-Madison chancellor Donna Shalala lost her House seat in the Miami area — one of two Democrats to lose to Cuban-American Republicans. The GOP also reclaimed New York City’s Staten Island seat. Next door in Minnesota, the Democrats chairman of the House Agriculture committee, fell to a Republican woman — one of fivewho toppled Dem incumbents last night. (The Ron Kind race in La Crosse has not been called.)

Here in Wisconsin, congratulations to State Rep. Todd Novak for turning back Kris Marion, a Bernie Sanders-endorsed socialist. Comrade John Nichols savaged Novak on her behalf, to no avail. State Senate Republicans actually picked up two seats — in New Richmond and Green Bay. But Assembly Democrats flipped seats in once heavily Republican Mequon and Brookfield where, likely, Donald Trump and his toxic personality lost Wisconsin.

We’ll leave you with the words of the youngest U.S. House member in recent history, a barely eligible (according to the Constitution) 25-year-old named Madison Cawthorn. A paraplegic, the North Carolina Republican tweeted on election night: “Cry more, lib.”

Blaska’s Bottom Line: America Tuesday 11-03-20 was weary of the Orange Meanie but still said no to socialism, chaos, and crime.

Are YOU hoping for gridlock, too?

        Irving is a revisionist/denier writer of history whose several historical books have been discredited by the High Court in London (following his unsuccessful lawsuit for libel against American professor Deborah Lipstadt) and by other notable persons.

        His book, Apocalypse 1945, was discredited at that trial, an example being his ever-varying accounts of the number of deaths in Dresden. It is a well-known fact that Mr. Irving did base his number of deaths on falsified documents. Irving has reported various figures of 100,000 to 250,000 … 50,000 to 100,000 … and up to 100,000. Today casualties at Dresden are estimated at 22,700-25,000.

        The English court found: “…that Irving was an active holocaust denier, antisemite, and racist who associates with right-wing extremists who promote neo-Nazism”

        Sir Richard John Evans, renowned for his historical research on Germany and a professor at Cambridge stated: “Not one of Irving’s books, speeches or articles, not one paragraph, not one sentence in any of them, can be taken on trust as a accurate representation of its historical subject. All of them are completely worthless as history, because Irving cannot be trusted anywhere to give a reliable account.” Jonah Parks-PhD Harvard History Dept

          What are you asking? “credible reference”? That’s what all those words are beneath the quote. “Birth Control Review” ran for 23 years, and is archived on-line. (various sites) Just now I typed “Birth Control Review May 1938” on my search bar, and found a PDF from Life Dynamics (probably pro-life). The quote is at the top of the 2nd column on page 90 (that ends with)—–“Moreover, they are qulte led away by the fallacy of numbers They want the black race to survive. They are cheered by a census return of increasing numbers and a hlgh rate of lncrease. They must learn that among human races and groups, as among vegetables, quality and not mere quantity really counts” —(hope this helps)—FYI, I’m not looking at this from a pro-life angle, but rather the racist hypocrisy of the “woke”

      Ach, Donnie, we hardly knew ye.

      But for the corona virus (God’s gift to the media), Trump would have sailed to re-election. An imperfect vessel, true, but the movement he started is far from defunct. I recommend an interesting and insightful article in the Nov. 2nd issue of “The New Yorker” entitled “The After-Party: The Trump Presidency poses stark questions for Republicans and Democrats about their ideological futures” by Nicholas Lemann, who assesses possible successors to DJT, including Don Jr., Pence, Pompeo, Nikki Haley and Tucker Carlson (!). To which I would add Sen. Tom Cotton and Sen. Josh Hawley. A surprisingly fair-minded analysis, something increasingly rare in the NYer, alas. DJT may have been the Goldwater of a movement that awaits its Ronald Reagan–and he got farther than Barry ever did.

      Will we ever again have a president unashamed to dance publicly to the strains of disco classics like “YMCA”?

    I’m suspicious of the reported voter turnout. According to the state’s election office, there are 3.6 million registered voters in WI, out of a population of 4 million who are 18 or over. 3.25 million votes were cast, which works out to 90% turnout of registered voters, or 81% of the voting age population. I just don’t buy it that turnout was that high. I suspect a lot of fraudulent votes by mail. Typical turnout is around 60%.

Republicans have lost the last four elections in the state, all seemingly overnight in Milwaukee. How can I contact Scott Walker to ask him about what Republicans are doing to combat this? Scott Walker mentioned after his loss that this was going to be an issue and boy was he right. I think it’s going to be a national issue for Republicans.
