The Morning Report - 2/20/20

debathis.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and you can bet your bollocks to a barn dance that after last night's Democrat nightmare in Nevada, they wished it was on a Saturday night when no one would've been watching. But the tiny tyrant, diminutive dictator, Little Big Gulp Mike Bloomberg might have set in motion not only a Trump win in November, but perhaps the splitting of the Democrat party as a result. I'm getting ahead of myself, so let's dive in to the fecal soup that was last night and recap some of the action. I invite you to refer to the transcript of Breitbart's live blog linked below for the blow by blow description.

With Bloomberg coming from out of nowhere to "rescue" the Democrat Party to beat Trump, there was no way the rest of that field who had been campaigning for close to a year already let him steal the limelight or the nomination (more on that brainwave in a moment). The guy may be a billionaire but did he really not think that his record as well as his foibles and campaign-killing sound bites would not be used against him? That's precisely what Elizabeth Wan did, and it was pretty effective.

That said, the bloody exchange between Bloomberg and Bernie Sanders was particlulary delicious to watch. The former, who mind you is trying to get the nomination from a political party whose base is hard left and heading harder and further left, just ripped its most popular candidate and the ideology he embraces as utter failures, as well as his hypocrisy for being a wealthy socialist with multiple homes. The stunning thing about this particular exchange is just how revelatory it is about the candidates. First, Bernie got so apoplectic, I thought was going to have another heart attack, but it shows that if he did go one on one with Trump, OrangeManBad would destroy him. Second, I find it quite laughable that Bloomberg is talking about the evils and failures of communism when as mayor of New York he has gone pedal to the metal to dictate how people live with bans on everything from guns to salt to styrofoam, while at the same time using his media empire to shield and whitewash the totalitarian thuggery in Communist China. Not to be outdone, putrid pipsqueak Peter Puffer tried to thread the needle as some sort of "real Democrat" and attacked both Bloomie's billions and Bernie's Bolshevism, which is risible in the extreme considering his father was a hardcore Stalinist and disciple of Antonio Gramsci who preached about taking over free countries via "the long march through the institutions."

That really was the theme for the night: hypocrisy on parade, but that has always been the story of the Democrat Party since time immemorial. Circling back to what I alluded to, I think tonight was yet another disaster for the Democrats. They are pinning their hopes on Bloomberg to be a face of moderation that voters can rally behind. But by trying to do this, they have forced the candidates to openly debate the merits or lack therof not only of socialism as a philosophy but the very policies that are at the cutting edge of it; policies which most Americans still at a minimum do not agree with and in general find abhorrent. That is, when their media gatekeepers allow those issues to enter the discourse. Note the absence of any questions about abortion and amnesty.

In any case, Sanders was the candidate to beat but after last night, it will be interesting to see the direction his poll numbers take. Sure, Bloomberg got cut to ribbons but I don't think anyone necessarily improved their standing. Looking ahead, the way the Democrat primaries are structured, Bernie still might not garner enough delegates to lock up the nomination outright, which means a brokered convention. The Democrats do not want him to run against Trump because he'd get crushed. So, even with Bloomberg's hideous performance last night, they seemingly have no other alternative, or are seeking no other alternative but to stick with him and his billions.

Whether the Democrats actually rig the primaries and blatantly steal it from Bernie as they did in 2016 (although back then, he was a willing shill candidate to run against Hillary, at least at first until the base rejected her) or if the delegates vote to give it to Bloomberg legitimately at the convention, the Bernie Bros will simply not accept that outcome. That means the Democrat Party fractures and Bernie runs third party this year with perhaps a permanently disaffected base. Or, recognizing that potential catastrophe that will last well beyond next November, the Democrats may swallow hard and let Bernie get wiped out by Trump. Plus, when you consider that so far, Bloomberg has burned through nearly half a billion dollars just to get humiliated, with perhaps an option for half a billion more, that's just 32 ounces of sugary icing on the cake. Of course, we'll see how the Democrat voters of Nevada caucus next week.

No matter what that outcome, it is obvious that the Democrats are in total disarray, warring from within, have zero policies that average Americans want, let alone regard for average Americans and America in general (they do love those illegal aliens!) and are headed for a wipeout not seen since 1984.

JJ, I thought that the Short-Shit hammerin' was illustrative. The Dems really do wield rhetoric effectively as a weapon. They were primed, and Bloomie was the target.

In the Neal Stephenson novel Anathem, he pits the Rhetors vs the Mathics, both with impressive powers in the secular world.

Last night, the Rhetors showed their stuff. But Trump is more than their equal there.

Dan Henninger in today's WSJ made an important point about AG Barr: "If Mr. Trump's tweets about the federal judiciary drive Mr. Barr from office, his necessary effort to establish what happened from 2015 onward will wash out to sea. Worse, it will establish mass, moralized fanaticism as the primary instrument of opposition in US politics. We may be one resignation away from that."

114 Increasingly humorous how not right this was:

Predictions for someone to google and point to and say what do YOU know anyway:

Won't make it to Iowa:

Marianne Williamson (ultimate vanity candidacy, she won't be able to qualify for the ballot)
Wayne Messam (Who? Exactly)
Tulsi Gabbard (she's burned too many bridges)


Drops after Iowa:

John Delaney (self funded vanity)
Andrew Yang (self funded vanity)
Julian Castro (old, old news)
Amy Klobuchar (last finisher for the women)
Kirsten Gillibrand (next-to-last finisher for the women)
Seth Moulton (maybe - he might not get to Iowa, candidacy doesn't have any reason for being. Against the Iraq War? So was/is Trump.)
Eric Swalwell (candidacy is to troll Trump - a costly way to do it)
Jay Inslee

Drops after NH:

John Hickenlooper (honestly I just needed to put someone here)

Drops after SC:

Beto O'Rourke (he can fund himself past a poor showing in Iowa, and the big dropout after Iowa will make him look like a mover until he gets to SC)

Drops after Super Tuesday:

Elizabeth Warren (nobody really likes her anyway - Super Tuesday will demonstrate that definitively)
Cory Booker (he will already be reeling from going nowhere with the black vote in SC)


That will leave the field with this:

Joe Biden
Pete Buttigieg
Bernie Sanders
Kamala Harris

Bernie will run to the convention regardless of where he is. But he is already done.

Now here it gets tricky - Harris I don't think can win but the Dems can't let the last candidates all be white men. UNLESS - she drops out, immediately endorses Biden, and Biden says, immediately, I will be glad to have her on my ticket when we get to the convention. Despite the fact I think he won't win, this might actually make him win. If those campaigns are too bitter with each other to do that, that only leaves one candidate:

Buttigieg

Seems that there's a subset of former servicemen who leverage their time in for maximum impressive effect. While it's well known that not everyone in the service can "storm the beach," and the entire enterprise needs people in various areas to make the thing go, some gross opportunists take advantage of this. Not unlike stolen-valor cases, they hide behind the "speak no ill of the military!" defense to conceal their appropriation of the hard-won reputation of service that sincere patriots have earned for it, and abuse that reputation for slumming in uniform just long enough to check a public-perception box.
Buttigieg appears to be one such.

197 Took the kids to see Sonic the Hedgehog yesterday, and thought it was fine, funny movie that didn't try to jolt me with PC electrical shock treatment. I'd compare it to last year's Shazam in quality, except that Shazam had some irksome moments, and later on, when I thought about it, those irksome moments began to overwhelm the good parts of the movie. This time, I don't have any negative afterthoughts about Sonic. Except that they HAD to make the lead couple mixed race. I mean, really, they lived in some small town in Idaho or something, and she was a black woman vet transplanted from San Francisco, married to this white small town cop. Is that a realistic demographic? Plus, she seemed to be the ONLY black person in town. It just felt belabored to me. Jim Carrey was great. When he dances to 'Where Evil Grows' it was the best; my daughter didn't know that that was an OLD song from my youth. Carrey probably enjoyed dancing to it all the more.

An attempt was made on the radio this morning.

Paraphrased: "He had nothing to lose, so this was a dry run for the next debate. He got the butterflies out, got accustomed to the format, took hits, no one expected anything. It was just a trial run where he literally had no states to lose as he's not in SC or NV, so it was an opportunity to tune up for the ones that matter."

A free at-bat? Maybe. Alternatively, an extra prime-time chance for the others to take swings at him before his money starts to matter.

===========

That all depends on how badly Sanders gets beaten in the general election, the presence of a center-left third party candidate, and the establishment's post-election reaction to a Sanders loss.

This is how I imagine it playing out:

Sanders gets the nomination at the convention with a majority of delegates on the first ballot. The establishment largely gives in, determined to make the best of it instead of ensuring a long series of losses by splitting the party. There will be a Never Bernie movement, but it will be small and largely ignored.

Trump will beat Sanders' ass handily and Republicans will keep the Senate while picking up the House.

The Democratic Establishment will then ruthlessly cull the extremist elements from the party. The extremist elements won't like it, will fight back, but won't win the battle within the Democratic Party, getting cast out. The new socialist third party will have a banner midterm year in 2022 where they pick up a couple of seats in CA and NY. It will all by vanish by 2024.

358 Tucker has been calling out the elites over their selling America to China. (literally cash on the barrel, well, literal cash, not a literal barrel) China failed to inform and act for months on the coronavirus ... endangering lives, no doubt costing many lives. They still lie and cover ... but they threaten all news outlets ... sell our propaganda or we cut you off.


And yeah, the internet media outlets tend to funnel the China news, of how evil/ignorant/racist/hateful it is to point out the problems of China propaganda of their global contagion threat. Just as with the "open borders or you are racist" campaign, the same now with any mention of China's coverup and arrests of those the reveal the truth on the internet. Many, maybe most, Western news agencies bend the knee to their China paymaster ... including across Europe.

Gordon Chang was on with Tucker, this is him on Epoch Times. It does seem likely the virus escaped from the China lab. Not that it was necessarily an engineered bio-weapon, but part of the research from the lab. The US (in December I think) arrested a couple Chinese caught stealing vials of some such "research" from US labs. They cover up their lies with "YOU are RACIST", and WaPo and BBC and the rest sing the China composed flower drum song.

Another darker scenario: Bernie loses the nomination because he's a loser and because Bloomberg has "failure-proof" money. The radical left seethes and grows and the AOC wing gains power. Democrats lose to Trump.

The struggle becomes to turn the democrat party full socialist and Pelosi and Schumer and old guard start falling.

2024 marks a radical leftist running in a clear field against a retrograde establishment republican who, after Trump's departure, suffers from an enormous conservative letdown and low turnout. Voila -- Marxist president.

Nicolle Wallace Show: Bernie Nomination 'Death Sentence' for Dems Leading to Trump Landslide
...

Next up was Never Trumper and failed McCain campaign head Steve Schmidt, who said that a Sanders candidacy, given his plan to take private health insurance policies away from 150 million Americans, would be a "death sentence" for the Democrats.

Here was Schmidt's rant in full, which was a refreshing departure from his usual hysterics about Trump (click "expand"):

When we talk about vile, online supporters and breaking promises and shattering norms and being untransparent, remind you of anyone? Alright and that's a big problem for Democrats. And I -- what I would say about all of this is we all sat here in this room on election night and we were shocked. The world was shocked when Donald Trump was elected.

(....)

We have watched for three years the shattering of norms, the attacks on the institutions, and at the end of it, now about ten months out from the election, what the Democratic Party has produced is a 78-year-old socialist from Vermont who is picking up steam and is going to be an unstoppable force before very much longer on the way to the nomination And so the theory that there is some great base of people yearning for socialism in the United States of America is a fever dream and a fantasy. Here's the deal. There's literally no one in this country who interacts with government. Not at a local level a county level a state level, not at a federal level who comes out of that experience -- thank God that was great. Terrific. I want to put these people in charge of more stuff, give them more money, more power, more control and he will be carrying forward into this election some of the most unpopular positions on issues that any candidate ever has. He wants to take away private health insurance from 150 million people. Go tell those union workers in Michigan, and Pennsylvania, those union men and women, that they're going to lose their private health insurance. It is a death sentence for the party and it will lead to Donald Trump's re-election in my view.

Alternatively, the Texas model: In 1990, Texas was still a predominantly Democrat State, and Texas elected another Democrat Governor, Ann Richards, in a fairly close races. Ann campaigned as a conservative, but governed as a far left liberal, and GWB narrowly defeated her in 1994.

After that, rather than pondering where they went wrong, the Texas Democrat Party made a deliberate choice to become the Black, Brown, and far-left Liberal party. They openly rejected the white working class voters who had been with them for generations.

Texas Dems have not won a single statewide election in over 24 years now.

Posted by: Trump poisoned my cat at February 20, 2020 08:39 AM (puu6v)

===========

That all depends on how badly Sanders gets beaten in the general election, the presence of a center-left third party candidate, and the establishment's post-election reaction to a Sanders loss.

This is how I imagine it playing out:

Sanders gets the nomination at the convention with a majority of delegates on the first ballot. The establishment largely gives in, determined to make the best of it instead of ensuring a long series of losses by splitting the party. There will be a Never Bernie movement, but it will be small and largely ignored.

Trump will beat Sanders' ass handily and Republicans will keep the Senate while picking up the House.

The Democratic Establishment will then ruthlessly cull the extremist elements from the party. The extremist elements won't like it, will fight back, but won't win the battle within the Democratic Party, getting cast out. The new socialist third party will have a banner midterm year in 2022 where they pick up a couple of seats in CA and NY. It will all by vanish by 2024."

That would be the rational way for this to play out. The problem is the Left isn't rational and just will double down with a more committed Marxist. The only thing that will prevent this is if Hispanics actually do start to peel off but polls (I know) indicate they are Sanders' strongest supporters, which makes sense given they come from socialist/Marxist countries.

It seriously has halted me from crossing over to vote for Sanders to sow chaos. Hope springs eternal and all.

Every election for the last 24 years, Dems and the Media have been loudly proclaiming, This is when Texas Turns Blue!!!! Yup, still waiting.

Meanwhile, I live in a very Republican county, Louis Gohmert's home base - and even though there aren't many interesting primary races on the ballot, early voting is showing HEAVIER turnout than in 2016 or 2018, the latter being a record turnout year.

Two interesting things about Mad World are the casting of Milton Berle and Spencer Tracy.

Berle- "Mister Television" and "Uncle Miltie" was known for being a manic, over-the-top character, but in his portrayal as Finch, he plays it straight, nearly deadpan, which gives Ethel Merman a grounding for her screechy caricature.

And Tracy brings a weight to the role of Captain Culpepper which, arguably, is the pivot of the movie. Imagine a stereotypical "authority heavy" like Gale Gordon in the role - it would throw the whole balance off.

This is from a celebrity blog that now includes a lot of politics. Celebrity bloggers are extreme SJWers/feminists/LGBTQ activists/Intersectionality worshippers:

TLDR: Lizzie Warren is Arya Stark

The mainstream media, which is 90% white dudes, has been trying to erase
Elizabeth Warren from the Democratic primary narrative for months. It
was all about Joe Biden, then it was all about Bernie Sanders, and then
it was about Pete Buttiegieg, and currently it's all about Mike
Bloomberg. Dudes love to talk about dudes in 2020, basically. I was
sad when Kamala Harris dropped out of the race, because love or hate
her, she would have called out those motherf-kers like crazy. So in the
spirit of Kamala, Elizabeth Warren decided to go OFF at last night's
debate.

That would be consistent with the strategy they're using against Flynn. It would also explain PDTS' remarks yesterday that those guys are going through a process. I think PDTS is setting up the DoJ for a major ass whippin. That might explain Barr's sensitivity to the tweet storm as well.

547 With each day, I become more and more convinced that the Dem nominee was not on the stage last night.

Bernie will have his plurality. Bloomie will have his billions. Bernie won't stand for the nomination to be handed to someone he beat in the primaries. In fairness, a legitimate position. That includes Bloomberg

This debate also showed that the Super Delegates will have a hard time voting for a guy who has so many base alienating issues, despite (or because of) his billions. He may get a lot of votes though because of all the ads and low information voters. He won't win outright though.

Bernie and Bloomie will have to get together and pick a nominee acceptable to the Bernie Bros and that Bloomie is willing to write checks to a SuperPAC for because that nominee will have no fund raising team. That nominee should have name recognition.

While I think Bloomie will fund HRC, I don't think Bernie or his supporters will find her palatable.
