The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
What's the endgame for NeverTrump? Their business plan seems to be:

1. Down with Trump!
2. ??
3. Profit!

They want Trump gone, obviously, and something called 'Trumpism' gone, but then what? Do they actually think it's possible to go back to the way it was before? What do I mean by that? What was it like before? Well, it wasn't that long ago when NeverTrumpers like Bill Kristol and Tom Nichols and Rick Wilson could claim to be influential. They were columnists and campaign consultants and they had the ear of men with clout in Washington DC. Conservatives would pay them money for their books and magazines and speaking engagement and cruises (ahoy!).

Do they really think that old status quo ante will be restored with Trump gone off the stage?

Because first they attacked Trump, which didn't work, as they were all like the buzzing of flies him. He never listened to them before, and he wasn't about to start. Because even though Trump may do conservative things, he's not really a doctrinaire conservative, so he doesn't care.

So then the NeverTrump maniacs started going after Trump supporters. Not only is a Trump a bad person, but you're a bad person, too, and probably a racist to boot, if you voted for him. But weren't we the ones that used to be their customer base? A friend of mine once went on one of those National Review cruises. But he voted for Trump, so I guess they don't want his money.

None of this is particularly smart. It reminds me of the presidential candidacy of Joe Walsh (no, not the Eagles' guitarist, the ex-congressman from Illinois), whose campaign slogan was, basically, "Eff you Trumpists, vote for me!" which didn't work out so well for him:

Walsh called the Republican Party a "cult" and suggested that he would likely support the Democratic nominee in the general election, stating he would rather have a devout socialist win the election than Trump.

So Joe Walsh is conserving conservatism by insulting conservatives and voting for socialism. Which is what all of the other NeverTrumpers are doing, too. And it gets crazier. Do you remember when when Evan McMullin all but explicitly endorsed Beto O'Rourke over Ted Cruz in their senate race? I mean, why? In what universe does that make sense? Cruz is about as conservative as you can get.

So after this is all over, what do they expect, that we'll just go back to sending them money to pay for their books and magazines and alimony payments? If so, they're really deluded. We're not going to forget what they did. We're not going to forget that when the battle got hot, they switched sides.

Trump has altered the political landscape and it's not going back to the way it was before. I'm not sure what it's going to look like, but it won't be what the NeverTrumpers are going to like. They've made threats to boot Trump supporters from the party after Trump is gone (not sure how they're going to accomplish this), but it looks like they're the ones who are going to be leaving. Even National Review is calling the Lincoln Project a bunch of grifters.

So there's no future for them where they are. They won't be the first conservatives to switch sides. I'm old enough to remember when David Brock wrote for the American Spectator. And they more their alienate actual conservatives, the more money from that source will run dry and they more they will rely on left-wing sources to pay their bills and so they will do things and write things to insure a steady cash flow. And so the Lincoln Project, and the Bulwark, and the rest of NeverTrump Inc. will slowly be assimilated into the progressive hive mind. Like Joe Scarborough, only with fewer suspicious deaths. We hope.

50 Kathleen was lava-hot in Body Heat -- an excellent re-do of Double Indemnity with a different ending. (Watching it in the theatre, I wondered why this modern Florida town didn't seem to have air-conditioning anywhere.)

And it was when I first noticed Danson, who plays an assistant DA (I think) who moves like a dancer. Other characters comment on it, and in one scene at night we see him doing the Astaire bit on the wharf by himself.

54 I would argue that Trump isn't a conservative at all.

Neither are the vast majority of us.

A conservative wants to preserve the status quo.

What is the status quo these days? Leftist media, Leftist academia, Leftist entertainment industry, Imperial courts, etc, etc.

I don't want to preserve that. Our culture is no longer the default.

We are now outsiders. We are now a reform movement that desires to change the status quo. We are classical liberals, in the mold of the Founders.

Our language must adapt to this new reality.

It's time to abandon the conservative label, and let the grifters who brought such dishonor to it keep it.

94 Over on the Tabbi article there is a great comment....the highlights

You are born with nothing in the middle of the country. You are told manufacturing is gone, and your only hope of success is going to college. So you get started. You major in STEM, which everyone says corresponds to a national shortage. You graduate. Contrary to public opinion, there is a ridiculous amount of competition. You have to compete with outsourced labor from China (slaves) and in-sourced labor from India (whose immigration status is contingent on keeping their job). You will be unemployable by the time you hit 40, unless you hit management. Who is the primary supporters of this regime? All the Democrats and half the Republicans. However, it's the Democrats that use race and identity politics, which is infinitely more effective, than Rhino arguments on efficiency, etc. Also, unlike the left, there is enormous, real opposition of this scheme from the right.


Orite, so you don't do Engineering. You major in the liberal arts and go to law school or business school. But you can't go to any business school or law school because liberal elites think you are a piece of shit unless you go to elite schools. So you rack up 250k in loans and graduate from Columbia. You learned nothing at Columbia because liberal professors aren't there to teach you, they are there to teach you "how to think," and hey, they got to get paid some serious coin from Uncle Sam in the process (all guaranteed by the tax layers of course).

You graduate Columbia law school or business school with no real skills and you go to work for McKinsey or Cravath. YAY!!!! You are rich under the current tax code, which was written in the 40s and 50s and assumed stable and humane employment. You make 190k a year working 100 hours a week for people who absolutely hate their lives. Half your money goes to taxes because, hey, you are rich, so that 190k becomes 85k. You have to live in NYC or San Fran or DC for those jobs, so you pay another 40k in rent (and that's cheap). You are down to 45k. You have to pay your loans off (3k a month minimum if you want them gone in under a decade). You are left with 10k. You rich bastard! If you manage to survive working like that for a decade, you have a zero net worth you rich bastard and maybe you can have what an autoworker in 1965 had by the time you are 60. 99 percent burn out and have nothing.

Orite, so you don't go to college, you get the message. You learn a trade. You learn a trade, but wait! An undocumented alien is willing to do your job for half the price and for cash compensation. This works for the undocumented alien because he or she can use the money to build a real life in his or her home country and he or she can have many expenses subsidized by the government because he or she isn't declaring the cash as income. You aren't down with this? You racist!

This is how social mobility ends.

100 Do they really think that old status quo ante will be restored with Trump gone off the stage?
++++++++++++
I don't think so. They're on the Left, and they associate constantly with Leftists. The jig is up and they know it. They are hoping only to help deliver the country to their masters while they sock away as much as they can for the future. I don't think they *want* to live in the future they're making, but they're willing to gamble - or perhaps even have convinced themselves that it won't be like that this time - on a disastrous outcome to avoid the consequences of their loss of position and intellectual power.

They're vain and foolish. They know what they're doing. And I suspect they have little hideaways where there they will be safe. Maybe in the rural Appalachia that Kevin Williamson hates so much, or maybe in a foreign country or outlying territory. At least, they'd better. If they haven't managed that much by now, they're stupider than I ever imagined.

106 In abandoning the conservative label, most of the Left's "party flip" mythology that they've used as a Dolchstosslegende to cover for their own sins and failings will fall apart.

The lie that we are also right-wing extremists would then fall apart as well. In the original definitions, the Left was republicans, liberals, and anti-monarchists and the Right was monarchist and conservative.

If we are both Republican and classical liberal, as we are, we cannot be anything other than a left-wing movement.

Being that the other side favors top-down centralized solutions to all of life's problems up to and including a hangnail, the case could be made that they are clearly on the same spectrum as monarchism.

We're the left, they're the right, and decades of their attempt the build a specter of right-wing terrorism now works against them.

If they want to play fast and loose with language, as they do with sexual identity, then let's weaponize the dictionary as well.

142 Yesterday, the organization in charge of running equine competitions, US Equestrian( formerly known as USEF) decided to cancel the end of one large national horse show and fully cancel the US Pony Finals being held at the Kentucky Horse Park when two attendees ( braider and groom) tested positive for Covid 19.

This is a premier event for kids and a stepping stone for them to move up into the next level of equestrian riding. Kids and their ponies come from across the US to attend this event. It's incredibly expensive to attend and often parents save up for several years as their youngster works to qualify to attend. I saw some facebook pages yesterday of little girls crying that their one chance possibly to ride in this premier event is now gone while they are actually standing in the barns at KHP with their class schedule in their hands.

This is asinine. People are acting like this virus is flying around with great powers, waiting to hop onto someone twenty feet away and infect them ,putting them immediately in ICU.

And yes, the protocol at this show included being masked at all times on the grounds, six feet distancing unless you were a family unit ( which were given color/numbered badges to show they belong together) , etc.

So now as soon as someone tests positive at a large, mostly outdoor event, the entire 1,000 person plus event is cancelled?

An *honest* sitcom character.

In one episode he tells a young kid with his baseball cap on backwards, "I'm guessing you have no idea how stupid that looks."

159 Was he a doctor? All I recall is his having lunch with William Hurt, the main character, in this diner with fans going, and later his solo dance sequence. I thought he was involved in the law in some way.

They don't care if we're all in the same line trudging through the mud toward a shallow grave--it'll be worth it to them to then sneer, "Where's your Trump now?"

State school engineering -> petroleum/chem engineer, aerospace/mech engineer defense or construction machinery. Yes there's competition from foreign slave wages but you do not reach a 40ish ceiling if you apply yourself and are willing to jump ship or be a jobshopper. An going into defense you limit your foreign competition. This may change. There's big money and effort going into automating engineering with design of experiment, deep learning etc. But making good money with a cheap'ish is still possible. Be a jobshopper if you're young and not with a family and make $100K + in your 20s, $200K+ in your 30s. A con with job shopping used to be no insurance but everyone's insurance ducks now.

I doubt it. Look at it from a corporate standpoint. Almost all of them are in one of two positions:
1) Down with the cause and eager to help
2) Terrified of liability

#2 outnumbers #1 by a wide margin. No one is going to buck the trend when it could cost them everything they've worked a lifetime for. The single best way to fix this would be an EO affirming - as is the reality, of course - that going about your business in public is assumed risk and there is no legal recourse if you contract COVID outside of recklessness. Not even carelessness would result in liability. Just like bungee jumping, skiing, and other assumed risk activities.

Life is assumed risk. And until the liability question is answered, it hangs over every businessman like the Sword of Damocles, and they will continue to comply out of self preservation.

226 Much of the insanely positioned opposition to Trump you see from either side is basically "the best defense is a good offense".

If lefties everywhere don't go on offense like this, Trump is going to "fundamentally transform" them all out of relevance and jobs. And they know it.

Yeah it was kind of a neat idea that wasn't as good as it could have been because she wasn't convincing in the role and everything is portrayed as stupid and wrong back then.

I thought Pleasantville was more complex in its portrayal of the times. Some things were worse, but a lot of the changes they introduced to make things "better" actually made things worse.

249 "I'm old enough to remember when David Brock wrote for the American Spectator."

Hell, I'm old enough to remember when Garry Wills wrote for National Review!

But "Never Trump!" is a matter of style over substance. Trump's boorishness (and let's be frank, the man is a boor of the first order) is really off-putting. He comes across at times like the guy who's trying to sell you a time-share over the phone. In the same way, Obama's neatly pressed slacks and smooth manner are attractive - like the guy who's trying to talk you into investing in his (rather shady) business. But, as the nuns used to teach me, "Actions, not words". I'll take the boor over the con-man any day of the weeks; and Trump's accomplishments - not the least of which are unmasking the American Left and the Chicoms - have been of great benefit to the broad, diverse anti-totalitarian coalition that is called "the American Right".

No, not in this case. The operative point of Rubin's tweet is point #1, and she wasn't even smart enough to bury it in the middle. Rubin and her ilk - the "conservative" Smart Set - had the respect of conservatives. Institutions. Publications. Cruises. Lecture circuits. They did have that. And they lost it. They don't have respect anymore, from anyone. They got found out. Their game is up. And that is the real problem. The grifting was probably secondary for a lot of them.

313 That article on the NYT about no debates is obviously from the top of the DNC. They're not going to allow any debate, no matter how bad it looks. It'll be up to Trump to capitalize on Biden's refusal, he should start planning the ads on it now.

314 I don't know if anyone (maybe Sefton) already posted this stuff:

1 -- seen at yahoo: Andrew Yang:

"I think Joe Biden is licking his chops to debate Donald Trump. I think he has been waiting for it for months. I have been on the debate stage with Joe. Joe's going to clean his clock. Nothing will hold him back from doing that."

2 -- seen at Twitchy: Elizabeth Drew in the NY Times:

"The debates have never made sense as a test for presidential leadership," writes @ElizabethDrewOH. "In fact, one could argue that they reward precisely the opposite of what we want in a president."

315 I think if someone is saying "Trump should be shot" they should probably be reported to his security detail as well as their employer, because it doesn't make a convenience store clerk look at all good for clerks to say this kind of thing to customers.

327 I got fed up with some bint and the Trump is Hitler stuff. Told her if
he was that bad, somebody would be goosestepping through the door any
minute and blow her brains out. So she starts saying somebody should
shoot him. This was a clerk at a convenience store. Hate to bust
anybody's rice bowl, but when I got home I called their local office.
She's probably sitting at home collecting that sweet $600 extra a week.


In a larger store, I'll walk away and then later, call the manager. I'll then describe the person I was arguing with, lie, and tell them how great they are. And get their name. Then I will ask for their regional/ national HQ, and say I want to write a personal letter about them. They happily give you that information.

Then the letter/email goes out. And it's not a happy one.

The only part of that film that made me laugh was early on, when the husband is telling the wife not to let the kids eat candy, and she replies that forbidding it only makes it more desirable, which will lead to them eating too much, whereas if they're allowed to have it, they won't overindulge. And the next time we see the kids, a few year later, they're quite fat.

353 But, as the nuns used to teach me, "Actions, not words". I'll take the boor over the con-man any day of the weeks; and Trump's accomplishments - not the least of which are unmasking the American Left and the Chicoms - have been of great benefit to the broad, diverse anti-totalitarian coalition that is called "the American Right".

That's just it. Do I wish Trump were less a used car salesman and more classy and intellectual? Yes. Do I dislike his puffery and sometimes sleazy statements? Yes. Does his serial adultery in his past bother me? Yes.

But if this is what it takes to get a man in office who DOES what he does... I can hold my nose and vote for him. We live in stupid times with uneducated people who need someone like him to reach them. OK that's what it takes.
