A victory for tear gas!

America repudiates progressivism

Pretty much sums it up: “Orange man gone and succeeded by a moribund cypher with an unprincipled naïf waiting for the desk in the Oval Office; opposition holds Senate and gains in House.” — “a The Nation magazine subscriber comment.

The big loser this week was John Nichols/Bernie Sanders/Mayor Satya-style revolutionary progressivism. America this week just said No to socialism, race and culture wars, and defunding the police.

Rep. Abigail Spanberger, a former CIA officer and moderate Democrat from Virginia,  … blamed the defeats on the Democratic Party’s progressive fringe. “Democrats were done in by extreme voices.”

In Miami, home to many Cuban and Venezuelan immigrants, the Republican winner exulted, “Today was a rejection of socialism and the evils of socialism and communism.”


But not the American voter’s

“The voters may have elected Mr. Biden but they left his party and its radical ideas behind.” 

There was no blue wave, and certainly no mandate for progressive change. … Which is all the more remarkable considering Democrats had nearly all of the media, Silicon Valley billionaires, and all of the leading cultural figures and institutions helping them. Even the Chamber of Commerce paid protection money. Democrats raised unheard of sums close to $100 million for some Senate races, outspending Republicans by two or three to one. They still could oust only two incumbents and lost one of their own. — Wall Street Journal editorial.


Gridlock, beautiful  gridlock

The (Marxist) Nation magazine would seem to agree: “A narrow Biden victory offers four years of gridlock — and that’s the best-case scenario. … Biden is ill-equipped to handle entrenched problems like police violence and economic inequality.” To which the denizens of Blaska’s temporary rural retreat say, “Huzzah!”

“This election’s clearest losers were Speaker Nancy Pelosi and minority leader Chuck Schumer, the public faces of the unhinged left. …”

Eat a Tide pod

If Washington has been a circus these past four years, it is in substantial part due to congressional Democrats. … The Pelosi-Schumer era has been day after painful day of faux scandals, gotcha hearings, breathtaking accusations, progressive-fantasy bills and promises to dismantle longstanding institutions. It’s theater, not governance. — the essential Kimberley Strassel.

Et tu, Portland? The burning Oregon city turned down the Antifa candidate to re-elected what The Nation disparagingly calls “Tear Gas Ted.” Ha!

‘Woke goofs’

Blame America’s aspirational ladder of opportunity. “There is no real mandate for radical social change.,” notes Kevin D. Williamson, National Review.

Bernie Sanders promises a revolution, and woke goofs such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declare themselves devotees of socialism. … Barack Obama came into office talking like Fidel Castro and left with a fat Netflix deal and a new gold Rolex — that community-organizer stuff is what he did on his way from Harvard to Martha’s Vineyard, his off-the-rack-suit years. Why on earth would he want to overthrow the social order when he was on his way to climbing to the top of it?

Today’s Bottom Line goes to Madison’s own Dave Cieslewicz: “Moderate liberals will point to Republican attacks on socialism and civil unrest that seemed to have gained traction. My own view is that the party needs to find a way to reconnect with blue collar voters.” Ya think?

Question for the peanut gallery:
Did Tony Evers campaign for a single WI Democrat?

    David, it is still not clear if the US Senate will remain in republican control, NC and 2 projected upcoming runoffs in Georgia coming up. With Romney a complete globalist and no trump driving the agenda. We will definitely see socialism enacted in this country. The republicans need atleast 52 seats now to protect themselves from the Romney’s and I am not sure they will have that many after all is said and done. Republicans always cave and meet in the middle on legislation and it is almost always to their detriment in the end. Statesmenship and decorum is great until it gets in the way of getting things done. We have seen how much can be done via executive orders. Unlike the Trump administration, Biden will have the most liberal minded, lawyers writing these orders and crafting of legislation. Cannot wait to try and heat my home during the winter once we are forced to go to Wind and Solar power. Do tractors run well on solar and wind. Does manufacturing run well on solar and wind. I hope Trumpism stays alive but we all know better. Nice to see Big Tech oligarchs stocks rise drastically after the elections. The fat lady has singing loud and clear.

      Well said. Only will add two items.
      A. Cruz would have earned a second term, easily……simply because he is not an illiterate fool and would not have tweeted like a drunken 8th-grader.
      B. Wid Biden, and a compliant set of Dim Senatorial Committees, the public will be spared from learning how corrupt the Biden (and Clinton, and…) Crime families were able to effect corruption in the dark halls of the DoJ, FBI, CIA bureaucracies.
      Eventually, we will sing praises to Xi and the Chinese, our new overlords, compliments of Uncle Joe and street-walker Harris.

    Requiem for The Proglibocrat:

    The enviable hybridized amalgamation (‘composite‘ as Hopey Changey would say) of the Post-Modern Neo-Lefty Progressive/Liberal/democrat. Unlike classic Liberals like (Claude) Frédéric Bastiat, the Proglibocrat desperately seeks an emotional truth which “feels” good, though rarely displays an even tangential relationship with the fact-based Universe.

    Some (not all) show an inordinate interest in Birkenstocks, hempen homespun, & five-adjective crappiccinos. They fervently believe that AirAmerica’s getting $#!t-canned was due to a vast-right-wing conspiracy rather than it being run according to a business plan pilfered from the back of a Kashi Granola box.

    They’re ardent ‘buy-local’ types….unless their intended purchases involve foreign made/slave-labor assembled Trek BIKIES and bumper-sticker-slathered, nonunion EcoBoxes, or imported Brie, Chablis, & Wheat Grass Tea.

    Their countenance is a cluelessly, all-knowing smirk coupled with a smugly judgmental sanctimony towards those who aren’t ideologically aligned with wealth redistribution (of everyone’s but theirs), higher taxes (levied against everyone but them), any philosophy to the right of Che, and all decisions being made for the individual by an all-powerful State.

    Unless they’re inconvenienced; if they are, they tolerate the only dissent that’s allowed (theirs) and issue themselves the unconditional Lefty Pass.

    They embrace diversity (except when it involves people with whom they differ or disagree), are tolerant of all cultures (except Western), and all religions (except Christianity & Judaism).

    They are oblivious to hypocrisy, and thanks to their advanced Bitterness-du-jour Studies degrees, suffer from staggering White Lefty Guilt. The Guilt may be shelved if low-income housing, a Festival Foods, or a homeless shelter is proposed for their neighborhood.

    They can be decisive and will turn on a dime when necessary; they once loathed the late John McCain, George Bush, & Mitt Romney, whom they now LUV because ORANGE_MAN_BAD.

    This could all change tomorrow if a chubby, moistened finger is held to the wind showing emotional satisfaction might be found in greater abundance, and secured with less effort, elsewhere.

    Good Riddance To Bad Rubbish!

    (Former) Mayor Dave’s insights come about 4 years late and will be ignored by sanctimonious Dems because they are congenitally unable to admit to mistakes large or small (or, in the case of the last two elections, colossal). They’ve invested too much time, effort, and money to suddenly stop spreading the toxic sludge of identity politics from one end of the country to the other. And the corrupt. senile old dotard who will soon “run” the country is one of the worst offenders of all.

    The number of people like Mark Robinson who are willing to publicly stand against the socialist/communist/globalist so called progressive agenda continues to increase. In the 4min video he is a private citizen but just became NC Lieutenant Gov.

    “In addition to the Lieutenant Governor, Republicans took 5 of 8 of the Council of State races, and as of the current count they are ahead in every statewide judicial race. The Democrats had hoped for total control of the Supreme Court and flipping one or both houses of the legislature. Instead it looks like they’ll have a bare 4-3 majority in the Supreme Court, and it appears the Republicans have increased their majorities in the legislature.”

    Disagree, on first point, Tweeting was not the issue. Republicans need to embrace and use technology to get their messages out on a daily and hourly basis and fight back, and fight back hard against the communists that have taken over the democrat party and every agenda driven media source. Taking the higher ground does not work anymore if you are a republican.
    But it is the manner in which things are said that does matter. They will need a candidate that is thicker skinned but eloquent with a kill shot per say to control the narrative. Kayleigh McEnany brings to mind someone that can cut your heart out with a nice smile. 2020 election is over, Trump lost.

          Benford’s law or the first-digit law, is used to check if a set of numbers are naturally occurring or manually fabricated. It has been applied to detect the voting frauds in Iranian 2009 election and various other applications including forensic investigations.

    Interesting comments here. Let me add some more.
    First from an obscure web site I happened upon called MHPRONEWS https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/fighting-to-tear-down-oppressionin-housing-educationemployment-rep-ilhan-omar-declares-marxist-socialist-war-on-american-economic-system-video/
    Interesting comments with some background material on those in government right now. What I think can safely be said is that anyone who refers to socialism, marxism or communism as a good thing is not seeing Karl Marx as they ought to.

    Karl Marx was a satanist. In his own words, he gave his soul to satan.

    Read Professor Paul Kengor’s book, “The Devil and Karl Marx” https://www.amazon.com/Devil-Karl-Marx-Communisms-Infiltration/dp/B08FXRGSFS

    Reading this book helped solidify my thoughts on Marxism. That at it’s core, it is anti-human. What Marxists really want is to destroy humanity.

    Also read and watch videos from Stopping Socialism.
    https://stoppingsocialism.com/2020/09/watch-karl-marxs-darkest-secrets-revealed/

    Also watch the movie: Enemies Within, a movie by Trevor Loudon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nqlUgDXKp0

    That is why I could NOT vote for Biden. He and those he is surrounded by are Marxists.

    Therefore, they hate humanity!

    Why would I vote for someone who hates their fellow man?
