46 Good for Elder, but I'm not sure what he's talking about. I've been saying for months that Gruesome will win this in a walk no matter what the polls said. In addition to the fraud and armies of useless government employees shambling like zombies to vote Dumocrap, the California GOP is a total joke. Is there even a California GOP in anything other than name? We have no statewide operation that's worth a warm cup of piss. Other than Elder and a few others, are candidates are stinkerific pseudo-Dumocraps. So exactly what war are we going to win???

I have to wonder how many mail in votes were "disappeared" since in some counties, you could actually see the "yes" vote because of strategically placed holes in the envelopes.

A married fellow I worked with lived modestly with his wife in an apartment. They saved and saved until they had enough for a down payment on a house in a good neighborhood.

He was about 35 maybe 40, his buddy talked him out of buying mortgage insurance, he died of a stroke before he finished sodding the back yard.

Larry Elder went beyond morose posts and did something significant. And the people that supported him and then voted for him did something as well. He at the very least bruised Brilliantine Bob up a bit, and at least made them expose and demonstrate their TTPs. Keep going, Larry Elder.

233 The California recall vote was not a result of vote fraud.

There might have been fraud, we know that large Democrat urbs are pretty much unwilling to ever run a fair election, but they managed to turn this into a Newsom vs Elder race.

The hard-right would vote Elder, and the rusted-on Democrats would vote to save Newsom no matter what, but Elder went a little too far toward his base for a lot of the center to swallow.

Being black is not much of an advantage in pulling loose left or center voters in a state with so few blacks.

243 If I want to look at the Elder defeat on a positive note, I'd say that just like the GOP is Trump's party, the CA GOP is Elder's. There is no way that Elder was going to win the election this time around. What he can do - and use his talk show as a base for this - is begin to rally the moderates and conservatives around his philosophy. The absolute first thing that needs to be done is to do a wholesale purging of the CA GOP. We've advocated for that, and he can actually do it. He got five times as many votes as the next candidate, and he's now the kingmaker there.

With him at the head, he now needs to take over the CA GOP, and put his people into the rank-and-file positions in the party. Then, use his radio perch to hammer it into the electorate that he offers a contrast to the one-party state CA is now. It's not a two-year project, but a longer-term one. He has a golden opportunity to remake the state from the bottom-up, unlike what Schwarzenegger tried to do - at least before he got derailed.

(Federal Judge Blocks DOH enforcement of vaccine mandate)

THIS IS A FLAMING SKULL

unfortunately it seems to apply directly only to the Government. the Department of Health (i.e the government) "is barred from enforcing any requirement that employers deny religious exemptions from COVID-19 vaccination or that they revoke any exemptions employers already granted before the vaccine mandate issued"
a private employer can still apparently do what it wants. but expect some employers to join lawsuits to not pay fines and not require their employees to vaccinate. Ironically, on its face it seem that employees of the Government are better protected from this than are private employees...
this is a federal court (so not a NY issue but a US issue). it will of course be appealed. it may wind before SCOTUS

You should demand counsel and then tell them you are exercising your right to remain silent.

That is a neat little "fuck you" they figured out. Some prosecutor at trial used silence as an indication of guilt. Something like, "the accused just sat there silently as his heinous crimes were described to him." The defense counsel rightly objected, because silence is a right and not an indication of guilt. The judge sided with the prosecutor because the defendant never made it explicit that he was exercising his right to remain silent. It was utter bullshit.

And ask for counsel early. They aren't allowed to question you until you have counsel. But every time you speak to them, you restart the clock.

I don't know about that. Newsom's policies would fly in every single blue state that voted for Biden in 2020. The cheat can take care of those purple states that marginally voted for Trump. FL and TX will run up the score for the GOP, but the DNC/Deep State/MSM complex can put Newsom over the line just like they did with Biden - whose track record is longer and ostensibly worse than Newsom's is.

If Newsom can get all of Hollywood to pull for him this time around, there will be no trouble cleaning up his record in time for a 2024 run. Kamala is radioactive; they need an alternative, and no other one exists right now.

337 Hoppean.org has an article about A Lesson in Power from Dune, and The Politics of Spice

https://tinyurl.com/4raxhrdt


The first trailer for Danny Villeneuve's adaptation of Dune was just released, and despite my skepticism that a movie adaption will ever be able to capture the themes of Frank Herbert's books, seeing it did cause me to reflect on what makes the original series a reactionary masterpiece. I could go on about its rejection of Whig history, humanist psychology, or egalitarianism, but I want to focus on Dune's understanding of political power and why Hoppeans should be optimistic about the future of politics.

I don't think Newsom kept his job by a vote that was almost two to one in his favor. No way. The cheating was crude and obvious, and inevitable given the mass unsolicited mail-in ballots and "print your own ballot at home" horseshit.

I think at this point, the Left considers obvious cheating a good thing. Like obvious illegal and unconstitutional government power grabs. All good. They're showing us who runs Bartertown.

Now that he's survived, the little worm Newsom is widely expected to take his revenge on the state by making it more unlivable for the middle class than ever. It's time to push him out of his comfort zone again, by other means.

Which is a ludicrous notion, for two big reasons:
1. It wouldn't work.
2. It isn't Trump's style. Launching a global war out of spite isn't something he'd do.

408 "So, if I buy the house next to you in a red state, pull up in my Subaru with CA plates, listening to Dave Brubeck on the radio then you see my Birkenstocks, you all will be cool with that, right?"

There's this deluded fantasy in the left that the rest of us flyover folk have never seen a gay man before.

No, but I believe millions of Republicans stayed home figuring it wasn't worth the effort because even if it WAS close, there would be cheating to put him over.

417 Biden didn't win. He had the advantage of a polarising Trump and the chaos of COVID to facilitate fraud in just the right amount in the most helpful of locations.

2024 will bring its own particular flavor but running the COVID cheat gambit again isn't going to have the same impact.

425 I'm dubious about Newsom running for President in '24. I suspect by that time Harris will have been in there for at least two years. The talk about her getting to finish out rezident retard's term plus potentially two of her own is wish casting by the Obama retreads. However a straight, white dude attempting to oust a "black" woman from the Presidency is going to be a hard sell to the radical left. And the radical left is currently large and in charge.

Also, as was pointed out, the ready option of massive election fraud by the Left demoralizes voters opposed to the collectivist program into not bothering-- a force multiplier.

428 Two things must happen.
1. Pubbies and you must vote
2. Pubbies and we must figure out a a way and stop the cheat.

If we do not do those two things it is lost

430 I got an email saying it is "disaster preparedness month". Couldn't be truer. Feeling a little overwhelmed as to how to prepare and what to stock though. I am worried about having a full freezer because of the vulnerability of the grid. If I lost a freezer full of lovingly canned food...I'd just cry. Food prices going up means stocking up seems smart, but then you have to shell out more now and store it. I'm a little overwhelmed.

We have tools, and the protection kind. Ways to make fire. Other ways to cook (though we could really use a proper camp stove), radios, ways to make light, lots of battery storage...

I'm also worried about having things shit the bed on me and not be able to get tiny replacement parts to make them work again. How do you stock pile when you don't know what will fail?

431 Only about a 41% voter turnout in the recall election. If there was widespread cheating I would have expected a lot higher turnout. California only 24% registered Republican. Another 24% are non affiliated.

432 is past time to break up the deep state. Move offices out of Washington to areas where they can serve the people they are supposed to. Move the Department of the interior to the interior of the country. Move Department of Indian affairs to Oklahoma. Those are just a couple of examples that would work. Now, no matter who is elected, the deep state will still run the country. The government has grown too large in Washington and needs to get broken up.
Posted by: Ron at September 15, 2021 12:36 PM (pOrFv)

A few suggestions.

1. Eliminate whole departments first
2. Departments still around get a 50% staff reduction.
3. Any department moved goes to a desolate section of the country not a city.
4. Isolate DC and starve it into submission.

437 Elder gave himself away as a less than desirable candidate when he defended the 2020 election as having "no fraud."

We now have "fortified" elections. Fortified being "outright fraud performed in daylight that overrides the people's votes while we all just sit down and accept it."

But reality doesn't matter to hysterical Twitter midwits who are in the terminal stages of TDS.

Or, perhaps they do indeed know that their hallucinations aren't real but have to LARP anyway because the truth that yes, this was indeed the type of treason-treason men used to be rightfully hanged for and that we are living in a South American-style junta hurts too much to contemplate.
