The Morning Rant

"I'd guess that President Trump has never read any Saul Alinsky. Not that he has to. I think he knows pretty much every one of Alinsky's rules by sheer instinct. Particularly the 13th, rule, which is: "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." This is what he did with the commie swine who they're calling 'The Squad.'

Hyper-woke squad members are currently spatting with old-guard Democrats for not being woke enough. Among other things, one of them called Nancy Pelosi a racist, and she's just shocked, shocked that the monster she nurtured is now biting her on the butt. And some conservatives are mad at Trump for inserting himself into this squabble because hey, why interrupt your enemy while they're making a mistake?

But whether he consciously intended it or not, Trump has now made 'the Squad' the face of the Democratic Party. He has held them up for all of America to see for what they are: deranged, America-hating, anti-Semitic, terrorist-coddling, far-left lunatics. They're polling close to the single digits now, almost as low as CNN's ratings.

And furthermore, he has glued them firmly onto the backs of the entire Democratic Party. So I think it's going to work out good for us in the long run. This association between will be a suppurating open wound from now until 2020, the squabbling will continue, and the Democrats' constant howling that Trump is a racist is bouncing off him like raindrops hitting a tin roof. They've used that word so many times that literally nobody cares anymore. Except the progressive nutroots, who, along with the French Davidians, will believe anything if it can be construed to mean OrangeManBad."

20 If it is Lainie Kazan, she was a hot number in the Sixties, but gained qite a bit of weight and became more of a comic actress. Bologna was always a comic actor really -- he played Al Bundy's "best friend" on a spin-off of Married With Children, or a pilot for it, with Matt LeBlanc as his son. Bologna was married to Renee Taylor, and they wrote many a comic script together. So maybe Lainie was in something they wrote?

Yep. Revealing who the Democrats are to the voters should cost them big time in the next election. And if it doesn't, and this is what the voters want, it just makes it clear that our nation is lost and it's time to get the party started.

Sadly, I'm sanguine either way.

34 Wolfus, the show with Matt LeBlanc actually got made, called Top of the Heap. The MWC episode was a backdoor pilot and LeBlanc's character was on another, IIRC, 3 episodes of MWC.

MWC later had two more failed backdoor pilots - Enemies and Radio Free Trumaine.

Asked if she would meet with Pelosi, she had a condition...for Pelosi.

Tlaib continued, "Acknowledge the fact that we are women of color, so when you do single us out, be aware of that and what you're doing, especially because some of us are getting death threats, because some of us are being singled out because of our backgrounds, because of our experiences and so forth."

Is it Barry? He told Hillary to concede and it sure AF ain't her. Who is their leader?

Relatedly, who is the leader if the Republican party? Trump? Half the party hates him, openly. Trump is the leader of Trump, and of the American people not represented by grievance mongers and identity politics hustlers. But he doesn't give the GOP their marching orders or shit would have gotten done in 2016-18.

First, welcome to the party. Talk to the Congressional Republicans who were nearly murdered on an Alexandria baseball diamond, or check in with Rand Paul who has now survived *two* attempts on his life, the second on resulting in months of painful recovery, bouts of pneumonia, etc.

If you can't handle it, get better security or consider a new profession.

Not excusing people threatening them, but it is a pathetic attempt to silence critics, with AOC going as far as to demand people stop talking about the 9/11 terrorism because this triggers people to hate them. O, Hell no, you do not get to tell us what we can and cannot discuss so that you can feel "safe."

==========

I think that there might be three main power centers within the party.

Hillary represents the Old Democrats. Obama represents the New Left. And then there's the modern Activist Left that thinks Obama's a centrist and is "led" by AOC and her ilk.

Hillary is the weakest of the three and is waiting for the rest to fall apart.

Obama is represented by both Biden and Harris, I think.

AOC is represented by Sanders and perhaps Warren.

So, even within the factions, you have jockeying for first.

I dunno. If Trump was the real party leader, I feel like we'd see more of his policies being acted on. Mitch the Bitch is good on judges but he won't do anything past that.

I think that there might be three main power centers within the party.



Hillary represents the Old Democrats. Obama represents the New Left.
And then there's the modern Activist Left that thinks Obama's a
centrist and is "led" by AOC and her ilk.



Hillary is the weakest of the three and is waiting for the rest to fall apart.



Obama is represented by both Biden and Harris, I think.



AOC is represented by Sanders and perhaps Warren.



So, even within the factions, you have jockeying for first.

154 Dems can vote to kill it (table it), refer it to Nadler, or send to floor. None of those are winning choice for them.

Sending it to the Judicial Committee and killing it there is probably the best of three bad plays.

But if they do vote to sideline it by tabling or sending it to committee, the GOP should side with the Squad to move it to the floor. If they had any political sense. Which they don't.

Mitch the Bitch is good on judges only because Harry Reid blew up the judicial confirmation process and confirming judges is literally all he can do with the current makeup of congress, and quite frankly confirming "conservative" judges is increasingly meaningless when all the donks have to do is forum shop and get a district judge to do their bidding.


This starts the judicial sausage making process and as we've seen the SCOTUS is not conservative in the least.


And even when we had both houses it's not like the Republican party was doing anything useful.


Yeah they passed corporate tax breaks and some temporary personnel tax breaks but those go away in 2025, so don't get used to them.


The bottom line the legislative branch is broken, the judicial branch is largely owned by the left and the Donks are working feverishly to make sure a Republican never gets elected again.

Seriously, paragraph breaks are important. How many times have you seen people talk about a wall of text?

How words look on a page influences how the mind absorbs them. When you have thoughts broken into distinct blocks, with white space around them, the reader can take it in almost all at once and then savor the details.

If it's an unbroken wall of text the reader struggles to see if it's worth where it's going. Also, separating the thoughts into separate blocks shows the logical progression of the argument which otherwise must be inferred by the wall-o-text reader.

Trump (in the ideal) represents we the people ... he is the outsider. None of "We the People" are represented by the grievance/race hustlers, even though they use that scam to pretend to be the hero/savior.

224 I dunno. If Trump was the real party leader, I feel like we'd see more of his policies being acted on. Mitch the Bitch is good on judges but he won't do anything past that.

I could be wrong, it would be nice if we had a single commander.
Posted by: Mark Andrew Edwards, Angry, Radical, Anti-Liberal, and Dangerous Lion: buy ammo at July 17, 2019 11:36 AM (bcbK

I believe the reason we can't have a Single Commander for the Republican Party is that we don't have a Single Party right now - haven't had one for some time. The old line "Republican Party" is dying, if not dead - the party of Bush, McCain, and Romney. Trump has really founded a new, populist party, not tied in to the Globalist pretensions of the old party, and he is in the process of taking over the form of the old and supplanting it with his new model.

BUT there a lot of old officials and hangers on and "stake holders" who have a vested interest in stopping him from doing that - and they will fight him tooth and nail along the way. They fade a little more each day - they were hoping to hang on until Trump lost in 2020, but if he's in til 2024 they will have lost all hope, and will have to give up and leave for good (as many already have)

I wouldn't give Nancy to much credit. She helped recruit and support these whack jobs to get elected and embraced them when she thought they were of use against Trump and Republicans.

She only distanced herself when they became a liability and went after her. She helped create the monster and she wasn't smart enough to figure out the monster would eventually turn on her, too.

The Democrats, though, have the media to do the call-out for them. Not being a regular GOP and thus not waiting for fair treatment, Trump just goes out and does it for himself, with excellent results.

I would easily pay 100 bucks to see a debate between Dr. Sowell and Chiquita Krushchev. Sort of reminds me of the 1997 race for NYC Mayor, where Al Sharpton nearly qualified for a Democratic Primary runoff against Ruth Messinger.

----------

The party is in total solidarity goal-wise but the fake public face of it is being pushed by a viperous undercurrent who thinks the Public Face people are too conservative, and more about themselves than the Party.

So you have fight between the happy liars who want to continue lying in comfort, and the hungry liars who think it's better to be open about what they want so they can gain power and a little comfort of their own.

Trump has been lying in wait for any hairline fractures to appear (and the right time) and he just threw a Molotov Cocktail at it.

285 So how is it that a party renowned for its solidarity has fractured so badly?Posted by: creeper at July 17, 2019 11:56 AM (wB3g3)

Blame Obama. His administration really pushed the racial grievance and encouraged the "academic" wing of the party to reject the traditional blue-collar wing of the party. At the same time, he failed to help the Dems retain power in government, losing over a thousand seats across all levels of government. Most of those gone were the purple-state and blue-collar Dems, and included a lot of politicians who would have been rising stars.

The Clintons would have put their own people in, had Hillary won, but her loss means that the only ones left in the party are the very old guard, like Pelosi, who are safe in deep blue districts and control the money, and the young radicals who are pissed about Trump's win and aren't going to wait ten years for their turn in power.

287 They fade a little more each day - they were hoping to hang on until Trump lost in 2020, but if he's in til 2024 they will have lost all hope, and will have to give up and leave for good (as many already have)

Yup, it'll take a little longer to knock the nomenklatura out of government. But the NeverTrump, old line GOPe movement outside of government hits it's sell by date on Nov. 5, 2020.

Donors are going to be unwilling to pay for the likes of Jonah or French after that. And the money they throw to elected officials will dry up more slowly, but dry up, it will.

The writing is on the wall for the crooks in both parties. It's their gotterdaemmerung. The Dems are only a few steps behind in this process, and today is an indication of how bad it's getting for them.

He failed his primary duty of not throwing the election to Obama.

294 30 "The Squad".
Is that the newest woke remake of the Mod Squad, complete with all colored women...I mean, women of color.

I remember the old mad magazine satire of Mod Squad called the Odd Squad. Someone with photoshop skills could do something really funny with that

296 The idea of not interrupting your enemies when they're making mistakes is a sound one. However, that condition was not in play when Trump trolled the entire Democrat party on Sunday. The entire week prior was spent by Pelosi trying to put light between the party writ large and the squad. That wasn't a mistake, it was correcting a mistake. So Trump threw a Molotov cocktail with a hand grenade duct-taped to it right into the middle of their effort with predictable results and now the party and the squad are one big happy family again ... until they're not. Trump is way ahead of the curve again, as always.

301 I find the DIY abortion presentation the most blatant example of chutzpah I have heard in a long time. One of the primary defenses used by the pro abortion crowd is it must be kept legal to be safe. Otherwise, we would have "dangerous back alley coat hanger abortions". Now they are coming along and advocating for the very thing they say is the horrible consequences of abortion restrictions. I understand the concept of cognitive dissonance; but it is a wonder their heads don't explode from their own massively contradictory positions

302 People seem to forget the environment that President Trump lived in for business. Building at the level he did, navigating the layers of "gov" to actually get something done, figuring out what buttons to push to get a favorable outcome, DC politics may almost seem like childplay to him.
One can disagree with his style ("Hi Mittens!") but hard to argue against his results.

French Davidians! I'm using that from now on.
