Are you in a (political) cult?

Politically active Americans pride themselves on having knowledge and basic principles that drive their political views and commitments. This goes for both left and right and especially the non-devoted “independents.”

But given how extremely out of kilter America’s economic and political landscape is right now (five dollar gasoline and 8.6% inflation by design of the Biden Administration, and lawless FBI thugs illegally performing the old Nazi Gestapo’s political function by arresting innocent political opponents of the Democrat Party), we have to ask if Americans on both the left and the right are politically devoting themselves to a form of cult worship. As in blindly supporting a political party or a political figure, regardless of how far away this devotion takes them from the essential beliefs they once held.

Because I was long ago a Democrat, and I have since fleeing that political party nonetheless long co-mingled with Democrat Party members, I have a base line for comparison, and so I will start here.

I am incredulous at how tenaciously so many Democrat Party members cling to that brand, despite so many widely deviating policy positions pouring out of it.  John F. Kennedy, vaunted Democrat Party icon even today, would have zero in common with the Democrat Party of today were he resurrected and inducted back into American politics. Rather, JFK would by today’s standards be a far-right Republican. This is because the Democrat Party has now abandoned every essential principle on which it stood, and has instead embraced and championed every anti-America, anti-child, anti-woman, anti-freedom, racist, Marxist, anti-America policy possible.

Given that the Democrat Party now stands for everything that is the opposite of what it used to stand for, it naturally follows that we ask if those Americans who are nonetheless still devoted to this organization are mentally in a cult. Like, they don’t realize it, and their blind devotion to something so profoundly destructive is an emotional response and not a reasoned response.

Look, if you so closely personally identify with a political organization that has repeatedly and radically changed its policies not just over your lifetime but over the past ten years, so strongly that you take it deeply personally when someone criticizes that organization, then yeah, you have a cult follower mindset. Because you have lost sight of the fact that all organizations are created to implement certain goals, and they are very rarely a personal reflection of you. This particular Democrat Party organization has shown zero fidelity to what it once represented…so how can you continue to so closely identify with it?

So I think the answer is Yes, especially a great many older Democrat Party members today are in fact in a cult mindset. They are emotionally loyal to an organization that is killing their grandkids’ future, and that personal attachment, that emotional way of thinking is why so many older Democrats then become absolutely enraged and incapable of maintaining a calm, logical discussion about policy and politics when their political party is criticized.

No debate is allowed, walls go up, friendships and even family relationships are ended. We all see it. It is tragic. It is unnecessarily destructive, and yet, this cult mindset persists.

Now, let’s look at the political right.

The American right is splintering along several philosophical paths, and it is amazing that the Republican Party has been able to provide a big enough “tent” to house all of these different views.

One path is religious, and not just Christian, but Sikh, Hindu, orthodox Jewish, and probably a few others. These are traditionalists who value family and community structures above all, and who ascribe religion with the capability of holding it all together. The crazier and more stridently anti-religion the Left gets (First Amendment be damned), the more these disparate people find themselves sharing the same fox hole. And based on my own personal experience, there are religious Christians who strongly oppose other religions, or liberal factions of other religions, but who nonetheless find themselves in league with them by necessity or by happenstance. Nothing wrong with that, as America is based on different people with the same shared values.

Another philosophical path on the right is the Small Government/ Big Citizen American. These are people not very religious, but devoted to running their small businesses, caring for their families, enjoying life, planning for their future. They see and reject the Left’s policies targeting everything they have worked for. They are especially at odds with Big Government + Big Tech taking control of their every thought, decision, communication, and bank account, and thereby reducing the citizen to a very small role in what is supposed to be a representative government tailor-made of, by, and FOR the citizen.

Finally, there are the nationalists, for whom a constitutional republic America represents the penultimate in human achievement. Some nationalists may be religious, of course, but there are a lot of proud Americans who rightly worship the American flag’s unique symbolism of freedom, liberty, opportunity.

Into the ointment of these neat little conservative philosophical categories flies the presence of President Trump. Without question there is a well-earned cult of personality surrounding President Trump, to whom myriad supporters often ascribe superhuman powers of discernment and strategery. It is a fact that President Trump saved America from the uniparty in 2016, and probably created a great national revival and awakening by having his re-election stolen in 2020. And so he deserves our adoration and appreciation, even if he isn’t really magic.

However, if there is any cult-like mentality on the right, it is among Trump Faithful who follow his every political endorsement, no matter how poorly reasoned or considered. Trump has made a bunch of frankly bizarre political endorsements around America that has left many of his supporters scratching their heads, like Dr. Oz here in PA and RINO Minority Leader Congressman Kevin McCarthy in California. Quite lovely primary battles are unfolding in Arizona and Nevada, where a couple of Trump’s endorsed GOPe candidates are being strongly rejected by Trump Faithful voters. They say that Trump showed them the way to the promised land, and that he has now has gotten bogged down in politics, which was never his strong hand.

And that right there shows that even among the Trump personality cult following on the right, there is both careful reasoning for why he earns support, and how there is disagreement with him over politics. Americans are understandably drawn to the only truly pro-America and non-political political candidate in many decades, President Donald J. Trump. Even those who openly adore the man also openly disagree with him.

I don’t think there is a political cult on the right. There definitely is one on the left.

 

Conservative media for hire, for sale, for what

While the big media news these days has politically active people atwitter about Elon Musk’s market purchase of Twitter, a quiet and evil trend has thrown some data points up on the graph chart next to Twitter that demonstrate some conservative news outlets have their own issue. Not necessarily with censorship, but with selling favorable coverage to political candidates the conservative base despises.

Twitter has always censored conservatives, outright deleting their posts, blocking their links, suspending their accounts, or even deleting their accounts, as happened with President Donald Trump, for ridiculous reasons. All while allowing the most evil, barbaric, cruel, misogynistic, anti-gay, racist accounts to remain fully active Twitter accounts, such as Hezbollah, the Taliban, and Iran’s government. To say that liberals/ Leftists/ Democrat Partiers can’t stand the truth or even a dissenting point of view is an understatement, but at least they do it openly.

Something similar and sinister is up in the world of conservative media. But it is not aimed at liberals/ Leftists/ Democrat Partiers. Rather, it is aimed at buoying up and promoting known liberal GOPe Republicans/ RINOs.

When I first saw Steve Bannon’s War Room taking up a cozy role when interviewing Pennsylvania state senator and known corrupt RINO Jake Corman, a red flag went off in my mind.  Because Steve Bannon is supposed to stand for everything that Jake Corman is so obviously against. It was written about here months ago.

But then the same thing happened at Breitbart, The Gateway Pundit, the Washington Examiner, and the New York Post. Each of these conservative outlets either promoted Jake Corman or some other well documented GOPe RINO who is despised by the conservative voter base, like Dave McCormick. Some of the articles are written by different people, but share the same photos and some of the same text, as well as the same thrust (usually the inevitability of Dave McCormick’s eventual win in the PA primary, or an unwillingness to confront Corman on his overtly and highly publicized corrupt behavior).

Below are some screen grabs from some of these conservative outlet stories. When I plotted these data points on an X-Y graph, the only factor that correlated strongly with them was… guess what… Money.

By all appearances these conservative news outlets are taking what can only be, would have to be, huge amounts of money to write what is essentially paid advertising posing as news. Not only is this slimy and dishonest, but judging by the comments left on these articles and videos by the product consumers, the target audience smells a rat each time and doesn’t buy it.

The only result is that The Gateway Pundit, Breitbart, Washington Examiner, Bannon War Room, and others not mentioned here lose credibility with their audience.

Must have been a sh*t ton of money they got to so blatantly trade away their reputations selling snake oil candidates.

Steve Bannon giving GOPe RINO Jake Corman the fake and unearned but best friends forever headline

 

Originally titled something like “Looks like a winner is emerging in Pennsylvania senate race,” the writer edited the title after she and I exchanged some thoughts about how honest it was.

Simply judging by their happy faces, Steve Bannon and corrupt RINO Jake Corman are indeed very happy together. This is a disgrace for Bannon. How many pieces of silver, Bannon?

Same picture and sharing some of the same wording in a New York Post article about the same race, this calls into question how honest Breitbart is being here with their rah-rah “report.” Treating an internal puff poll like it is real takes money, not professional reporting.

Although The Gateway Pundit is the primary anti-GOPe conservative news outlet, it does not seem to hold GOPe Jake Corman to the same standard. Nice smiling stock photo, no questions about Corman’s effort to stop PA senator and fellow gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano from auditing the 2020 election. Total dishonest puff piece this and others by TGP about Corman. For shame.

Talk about fake news…Oz as of the date of this article is several points ahead of McCormick, who is neck and neck with Kathy Barnette. But it sure seems that money buys favorable headlines in conservative media outlets

 

“Only Trump can destroy Trump”

For five long, brutal years President Donald Trump withstood a non-stop cyclone of misinformation, disinformation, lies, hoaxes, endless false accusations, two fake impeachments, and outright mutiny and insubordination by federal employees and military officers.

President Trump handily won re-election in November 2020 with the devotion of his ardent supporters, and the big lie that basement dwelling corrupt, doofus failed career politician Joe Biden was president only became an official narrative because that cyclone of official insubordination and mutiny around President Trump reached its climax from November 4th 2020 through January 2021 with the help of Big Media lies and Big Tech censorship. All statutory and constitutional safeguards set up to protect sacred American voting from being tampered with failed, because the people entrusted with those safeguards deliberately failed.

And all throughout that five year period tens of millions of American voters kept faith that President Donald Trump would prevail, because they knew that only he, of all of America’s elected officials, believed in a free America with liberty and justice for all. Despite the Democrat Media – Big Tech industrial complex’s best efforts to divide Trump’s followers from Trump, the Trump Train continued full speed ahead. As it does even now, when Trump draws huge crowds to his rallies.

Radio personality extraordinaire Rush Limbaugh used to explain how the Big Media people just do not understand the connection that Trump has with his followers.  Rush said many times “Only Trump can destroy Trump’s relationship with his followers. Because that bond of trust between them is so strong.” In other words, it would take a betrayal of that trust by Trump to sever that bond. No big lies, no hoaxes, no fake impeachments would ever dent Trump’s popularity.

And I think we are beginning to see that bond fraying, only because President Trump is fraying it through his own deliberate actions that directly alienate his strongest supporters. No one ever accused President Trump of being a politician, and in fact it is his greatest pride that he is not a politician. He didn’t think that way and he didn’t act that way. But by trying to act like one now, Trump is reaping the kinds of results that politicians invariably get when they literally play politics.

In the past week we have seen President Trump officially endorse for US Senate a known Hollywood liberal RINO candidate, Dr. Mehmet Oz, instead of a true conservative candidate who actually lives in Pennsylvania. This endorsement was so bizarre that many people are booing its mention at voter gatherings here in Pennsylvania. It is not a popular decision among Trump’s followers.

And now President Trump is actually, incredibly, unbelievably encouraging PA Swamp RINO problem child Jake Corman to stay in the PA governor’s race. Even though Corman has been the biggest obstacle to conducting an official audit of the stolen 2020 election here. Which makes people wonder if Trump is going to endorse Corman, who was just about to file paperwork to withdraw his name from the race, but who is now following Trump’s advice to stay in.

So many old adages address this situation. One goes “If you have nothing positive to say, then say nothing at all.” Another goes “It is better to be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.” And of course Rush Limbaugh’s warning to President Trump (paraphrased here): “Only Trump can destroy Trump.”

If President Trump continues destructively mucking around in Pennsylvania politics, of which he knows little, and in which many of us have devoted decades of our lives at great personal cost while battling the corrupt PAGOP and the Harrisburg Swamp, then Trump is going to break his bond with us.

All of my friends are saying this, and I am saying it, too, as painful as it is. President Trump, we will follow you to Hell and back, if we believe that you have our backs. But when you behave this destructive way and hurt us, then we no longer trust you.

 

couple more thoughts on Trump’s US senate endorsement

In his endorsement of non-Pennsylvanian, non-conservative, liberal Hollywood TV elite personality Dr. Mehmet Oz for the open US senate seat here in Pennsylvania, President Trump made it crystal clear in his statement that this was a strategic decision. Not an ideological decision.

By strategic, President Trump said and meant that Oz is (in Trump’s opinion) the one “Republican” candidate with the widest general appeal in November’s general election, when the Republican nominee will face evil anti-America leftist Josh Shapiro (the word evil is my own choice, because I believe that Josh Shapiro is absolutely evil, pure evil, cruelly evil, horribly evil, not because of his policy positions, which he is entitled to, but for his evil mis-use of his important Attorney General position for purely politically partisan purposes, at enormous cost to Pennsylvanians of all beliefs and viewpoints).

Trump made it absolutely clear that his support for Oz is not based on anything that Trump believes in or actually wants, more than a simple “R” in the senate instead of a “D,” and a Karl Marx/ Josef Stalin-driven “D” at that. To Trump, having another senate “R” here, even in the image of RINOs Rick Santorum, Arlen Specter, Patricia Toomey, et al, is still a win.

OK, I suppose there is a logic to that thinking and approach to electoral politics. It is a time-honored approach in Pennsylvania. Heck, we see it 24/7 with the GOP in general and the PAGOP in particular, both of whom automatically sell the most dumbed-down, weakest, most “moderate” candidates possible every race, on the basis that this weakness sells, because it is non-threatening to non-conservatives.

Problem here is, Pennsylvania is becoming a more conservative state. Most of the Democrats I grew up with were like me – pro-Second Amendment and pro-Life – and they, like me, are no longer registered Democrats. Even those with long Democrat Party allegiance and pedigrees going back to FDR had been voting mostly conservative for a long time already. Making the step from pro-America Democrat to Republican was not too terribly difficult for most of them. And Trump has no way of knowing this, because he is not from Pennsylvania and he does not know our conservative blue collar politics.

The other problem with Trump’s thinking on this odd Oz endorsement is that he seems to forget that he himself was once (in 2016) the ideological outsider with “no chances” of winning any election, primary or general. And he also seems to forget that it was precisely his own fervent America First ideology that captured votes from across the political spectrum in PA and elsewhere.

If President Trump were to really think carefully about this PA senate race, he would have endorsed either no one, or he would have endorsed his ideological mate Kathy Barnette. Endorsing no one and just leaving his unwillingness to select media-favorite dangerous RINO WEF mole Dave McCormick would have sent a clear message of his justified rejection of  McCormick. But it seems to me that Trump’s unhappiness with McCormick is more personal, and on that score we all know that his personal feelings about loyalty and betrayal can be both Trump’s best and worst character traits.

In this instance, it seems Trump’s personal antipathy for McCormick goaded him into wrongly endorsing McCormick’s perceived rival, Dr. Oz.

But I do not at all believe the “professional” polls showing this race a dead heat between Oz and McCormick. And I do not at all believe that this senate race is and will be only between RINOs Oz and McCormick. Rather, I am watching Kathy Barnette quietly amassing strong public support across eastern and central Pennsylvania. This is not yet really evident in any of the polls, and I think Barnette is going to give everyone – pollsters, pundits, and politicians alike – a run for their money in this primary election at its very end.

If Trump were being the best of Trump, he would have spent some time here talking with voters on the street and hearing what they are saying, and he would have rendered either an endorsement of someone who tracks with his America First ideology, or no endorsement as a result. But instead he kind of shot from the hip, for a kind of understandable reason, and then he kind of shot himself in the foot. Because I do not know one Republican voter who is going to vote for Oz, either before or after Trump’s endorsement. Trump has alienated his strongest supporters with this endorsement; he has not persuaded them.

Instead, Republican/ conservative voters (lots of conservatives feel caged and locked up in the useless Republican Party) are saying “I don’t care that Our Lord and Savior President Donald Trump just endorsed someone. It is a flawed endorsement that makes no sense. So I am not voting for that person.”

And the one name I keep hearing and seeing written by these voters is candidate Kathy Barnette.

Trump endorsement helps Barnette

Two days ago, President Donald Trump made an endorsement in the US senate race here in Pennsylvania, and it has most of his followers scratching their heads. Because his endorsement is a non-sequitur. It makes no sense to us. But don’t worry, it actually works well for conservatives and for the one conservative candidate in the race.

Historically, conservative voters prefer that the GOP stay out of primary races. Conservatives trust the open market place to reveal their logical choices, and they do not trust the entrenched party establishment to make market-based choices. The party has shown itself to be all too good at artificially obfuscating and shaping primary races. The GOP “leaders” almost always choose weak, spineless, wishy-washy “moderates” who will go along with whatever the mainstream media tells them is important, or whatever the GOP donors tell them is important. Whatever any of those things may be, they are NOT important to the working American citizen. So, our regular working person feels slighted when the GOPe tries to shape the outcome of primary elections.

However, most conservative voters do trust some individuals to help them figure out who is the best candidate. And President Trump is one of those few people whose opinion about candidates a lot of Pennsylvania voters trust.

Given one misfire already in this race, when Trump endorsed Sean Parnell last summer, and then Parnell dropped out because of an acrimonious divorce involving his little kids, a lot of us thought that Our Lord and Savior Donald Trump was going to either sit out this race altogether, or make a carefully considered endorsement. But in usual Trump style, he did neither.

Or did he not? His latest endorsement seems totally out of synch with who Trump is and what he believes in. Seems.

Trump’s endorsement of not-a-Pennsylvania-resident Hollywood liberal Dr. Mehmet Oz for US Senate here in Pennsylvania actually does help the one and only conservative candidate in that race. Bear with me here.

Because very few conservatives were going to vote for Oz anyhow, regardless of Trump’s endorsement, and because Trump’s endorsement is a huge in-your-face diss to GOPe candidate Dave McCormick, and because the documentation is spreading like wildfire that GOPe candidate Dave McCormick is actually a Klaus Schwab World Economic Forum mole, (Klaus Schwab is literally the evil incarnate Nazi talking conniving global dominating scumbag) the biggest beneficiary of the Trump endorsement is actually candidate Kathy Barnette

Barnette is the natural default candidate for conservative and America First voters, and all she needs to win this primary race is for the decks to be cleared of Never-Trumper McCormick and liberal New Jersey resident Dr. Oz.

Trump just did that.

By endorsing someone most Pennsylvania primary voters were never going to vote for and still won’t vote for, Trump has taken the positive attention off McCormick, made it clear that McCormick is not an America-Firster and is not Trump’s first choice, and forced Pennsylvania voters to think about this race. That hurts McCormick and it actually only helps Oz a small amount. Trump knows that proud liberal Oz will never ever be the first choice of American conservative Trump voters.

Watch Kathy Barnette’s poll numbers start to sharply rise as voters scurry to find their candidate! Brothers and sisters, Kathy Barnette is your candidate.

Hey, Trump just did that!

Acts of Valor vs. Acts of Phoniness: Dave McCormick’s huge fake on PA

Isn’t it intriguing that people who serve in military combat will do all kinds of unbelievably and beautifully brave things at the risk of their own life and limb (thank you all for your service to us back home), but when they are elected or appointed to office, they immediately become political cowards…unwilling to take even nominal risks to do the right thing.

This is not a question, it is an empirical fact. Very few military combat veterans who have been elected or appointed to federal office in America have conducted themselves even remotely as selflessly, fiercely, and as at real personal risk as when they were on the field of battle with firearm in hand and in mortal danger. And we don’t mean physical risk here, but risk to one’s position of official power. Even the toughest combat veterans are demonstrably over and over extremely reluctant to do anything to risk their high official station. No matter how badly America needs their former bravery brought to bear in Congress or in the federal bureaucracies.

Who knows why this is, but it is. Perhaps these wonderful human beings shine most when they know that everything is on the line, and when they later take office, they end up believing or realizing that nothing is actually on the line, except their cushy job and super-high-yield insider trading investment opportunities. And this realization turns them into either simpering weaklings or testily dodgy bullies, who will do absolutely any whore’s job to hold onto their elected or appointed job.

Just a few recent examples of this strange juxtaposition include former senator John Kerry (DC), deceased senator John McCain (RI), and current congressman Dan Crenshaw (RI). Surely there are at least a hundred other such elected or appointed military people, if only your author here spent the time to think or write much more about it.

The one modern exception to this rule that immediately comes to mind is President Theodore Roosevelt, whose adage to “speak softly and carry a big stick” was an excellent rule he both implemented and also nonetheless frequently flouted. Roosevelt flouted his own rule because he was utterly fearless, on the battlefield and off it. His fearlessness begat incredible effectiveness and measurable results, and it is what got his face on Mount Rushmore.

And we should give former Navy SEAL and Trump Administration DOI secretary Ryan Zinke some credit for his brief time at the helm of Interior, where he was daily beset by taxpayer-funded enemies of America and their partners in the mainstream media. But Zinke was in office too briefly to really measure.

Even fellow military combat veteran President Dwight Eisenhower (1953-1961) was never going to get his face on Mount Rushmore, but on the silver dollar instead, because while he was a true battlefield warrior, once elected to office he was halfway tough and halfway wuss. Anyone interested in what I mean here can easily and quickly research Eisenhower’s strange autoimmune disease-like combination of Cold War hawk and weak-ass dove.

The point being that politics seems to attract people who we innately admire for their battlefield service or even their heroics thereon, but who then greatly disappoint us once they enter politics. And current candidate for US Senate Dave McCormick is one such example.

McCormick’s campaign website says:

Dave was appointed to the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering. While at West Point, Dave was a four-time letterman on the Army wrestling team and a co-captain his senior year.

Upon receiving his commission as a 2nd Lieutenant, Dave attended Airborne School and Ranger School, where he graduated with honors at one of the toughest schools in the Army. Dave was assigned to the Army’s All-American 82nd Airborne Division, where he was in the first wave of American troops sent into Iraq during the Persian Gulf War in 1991. His unit was tasked with clearing minefields and destroying enemy munitions, and he was awarded the Bronze Star.

As I am a former wrestler (grade school into college), I do value McCormick’s wrestling experience, because I know quite personally that this uniquely difficult and challenging sport builds good character and tough personal traits. And I naturally also value McCormick’s exceptional military training, and like many people, I also greatly appreciate his presence on the field of combat in Iraq.

So while it’s a damned huge shame that these laudable traits did not compute into a great political character for McCormick, it’s also no great surprise. Because RINO McCormick is following in well trod footsteps by many who have preceded him.

  • Dave McCormick is nowhere near the person he says he is, or who he is trying to portray himself as. (Neither are several of McCormick’s opponents, either: Dr. Oz was a flaming liberal until recently, when he decided to run for office as a Republican. Oz’s candidacy is 100% Hollywood Media hype and puffery, and his political persona/ policy positions is all totally made up utter bullshit. Jeff Bartos is an unabashed RINO who stands for nothing. Carla Sands is marginally better than Oz or Bartos, but still an establishment political hack who also ‘came home to roost’ in PA from out of state when she smelled a juicy opportunity to run for office…she represents just more of the same old political opportunism like Hillary Clinton did in New York, so no, no thanks, Carla).
  • McCormick is, or at least was until very recently, a resident of Connecticut, where he resides in a big fancy house surrounded by other megarich people in big fancy houses, far away from the blue collar stink of Pennsylvania voters, who he now suddenly needs if he is going to convert this juicy political opportunity into more self-improvement. And so suddenly, kapow!, McCormick is a tree farmer (I am a Tree Farmer myself) from central PA in down-home plaid flannel shirts and dungarees, so he can get that Everyman appeal moving in the right direction. I will say that it is true McCormick grew up trimming Christmas trees on his family’s Tree Farm in central PA, and I will also say that he long ago ditched that honest work and healthy way of thinking when he became a greedy, heartless, globalist.
  • McCormick made hundreds of millions of dollars from running hedge funds, which make money the opposite of earning it: They bet against American companies and jobs, and when American workers and investors do badly, hedge fund guys sit around smoking big fat cigars and congratulate themselves on making craploads of money off of our misery.
  • McCormick is a trustee of the Aspen Institute, which is a globalist anti-America make-the-ultra rich-even-richer Leftist think tank funded by the Gates Foundation (ultra Left), the Ford Foundation (ultra Left), and the Rockefeller Foundation (mostly ultra Left). Having myself served on many boards, I can tell everyone who cares that the Left does not allow anyone near their organizations who is not one of them.
  • McCormick served in the George Bush administration from 2005 to 2009 in several high level positions. And while in the bad old days of American politics this kind of resume impressed America First voters, we now see that the most anti-America, anti-Trump, anti-America First people were… George Bush and his administration! They did plenty of behind the scenes anti-America dirty work that America hater Obama could never do, and since 2016 George Bush has been one of President Trump’s fiercest policy critics, even now. So knowing what we now know about open borders globalist George Bush, McCormick’s roles in his administration are no longer an asset, they are a liability. Because America has already been betrayed by a thousand other globalist Bushies/ establishment Republicans/ RINOs just like Dave McCormick. NO MORE.

America as a constitutional republic is hanging by a thin thread, and if our nation is going to survive, we must elect strong leaders. We cannot afford any more RINOs like Jeff Bartos, Dr. Oz, or Dave McCormick, so-called “moderates” who fight for nothing, demand nothing, and stand for nothing except their own personal glory and finances.

Sorry this took so long to say, but it had to be said just right. It does neither me, you the reader, nor Dave McCormick any justice to just poke some holes in his totally rotten political establishment and mostly anti-America resume. There is a real person behind Dave McCormick’s name, and before that person grew up, left central PA, and became obsessed with greed and personal power, he probably was the kind of person we would have wanted as our next US senator from PA. But not any more, because Dave is no longer that person. He abandoned his roots when he joined the globalist ranks, and he does great disservice to his own personal achievements by slyly trying to pass himself off as just the local, humble working guy he once was.

The only person worth getting my vote or yours for US Senate is Kathy Barnette, a humble, honest, down to earth working person and US Army veteran.

 

Why Kathy Barnette has my support for US Senate

Kathy Barnette is an all-American lady, with personal roots all working people can relate to. Unlike her opponents (Dr. Oz, Dave McCormick, Carla Sands, Jeff Bartos), she is not false, or misleading. Her candor and earnestness are refreshing, because most politics today is a sea of garbage through which voters must carefully pick and swim.

Three of the four candidates opposing Kathy Barnette are from out of state (Carla Sands, Dave McCormick, and Dr. Oz), and they only recently discovered/ manufactured their Pennsylvania connection when they had an opportunity to run for senate. Each has a history of promoting far-Left policies (e.g. red flag laws that place law-abiding gun owners at risk of politically motivated SWAT teams kicking in their doors) that are exactly what America is dying from right now, so their sudden embracing of conservative policies that Republican Party primary voters want is waaaaayyyyy suspect.

Jeff Bartos is a proud, unabashed RINO (Republican In Name Only liberal) who changes his positions with the wind. He says he was pro-Trump when he was not pro-Trump. He says little about the blatantly stolen election of November 2020. Bartos only appeals to GOPe insiders who have zero contact with the Republican/America-First voting base.

Bartos would be a disaster as a US senator, probably following exactly in the footsteps of outgoing RINO Senator Patricia Toomey, whose 55% conservative/ 45% leftist voting record hardly represents what Americans want and need. Guys like Bartos and Toomey are overly sensitive to the Democrat Party’s Media-Big Tech industrial complex, whose anti-America partisanship knows no limits. And so Bartos would vote like former senator Arlen Specter used to vote and how Toomey has voted. I am positive Bartos will be no friend or ally to law abiding gun owners.

So away from the swampy quagmire of Bartos/McCormick/ Sands/Oz stands Kathy Barnette, a US Army veteran, working mom and wife. She is also black, which means she knows first-hand how destructive the liberal policies are that her opponents promote. And her policy positions reflect her down-to-earth life experiences.

I am proud to circulate ballot petitions for Kathy Barnette, to help her get onto the primary election ballot coming up for your vote in May.

I hope my fellow America-First voters will support Kathy Barnette for the US Senate.

PA’s ballot petitions are a Jurassic-era holdover from the days of political party collusion for control of the voters. Anyone should be able to run for office with minimal hurdles. But until we reach that pro-democracy point, I am proud to circulate petitions for outstanding candidates like Kathy Barnette

Kathy Barnette for US Senate. A pro-gun, pro-freedom candidate with beauty and brains

Joe Biden incompetence/ corruption = Ukraine invasion

The only reason Russia felt comfortable invading Ukraine yesterday is because corrupt senile pedophile Joe Biden is asleep at the wheel.

The only people Joe Biden is dangerous to are innocent, law-abiding Americans who oppose Biden’s lawless fascist dictatorship. The Russians sure as hell are not scared of him.

Joe Biden’s word salad public statements about “our hearts and prayers are with the Ukrainian people” etc etc are not only not presidential, they are a clear signal that the Biden Regime intends to let Russia do whatever they want to do, and America will do nothing but send fondest wishes via Twitter to the Ukrainian people and the thousands of Americans now abandoned in Ukraine.

An administration worthy of being called “American” would have at least negotiated the escape of our American citizens now stranded in Ukraine, before giving Russia the green light to invade. But this Biden Administration is not American. Rather it is an assemblage of anti-Americans whose job it is to destroy America from inside.

Need an example? Why is Joe Biden shutting down domestic American oil and gas production, while openly committing to continue purchasing RUSSIAN oil and gas? This weakens America, artificially raises the price that Americans pay for oil and gas, and it greatly strengthens Russia.

Biden’s bizarre anti-America arrangement ain’t high-end, complicated economics, people. This is Econ 101, the kind of super simple economics most college graduates were taught their first year, and that non-college graduates of Life College had to learn the hard way on their own. The things that Joe Biden is doing can only damage America and Americans, and in fact they are greatly damaging America and Americans.

If you are an American citizen still loyal to Joe Biden, then shame on you. You must really hate America and your fellow Americans. You would not tolerate this malfeasance from any politician in a different political party, and this misplaced loyalty really highlights the silliness of political party loyalty.

How the hell can American taxpayers be loyal to any political party that does this much serious damage to America?! How much damage do you think America can sustain? What the hell do you think will happen to your life and your family if this wanton destruction is allowed to continue?

Anyhow, it is Joe Biden’s weakness that invited the Russians to invade the Ukraine, and China will now probably follow up with an invasion of Taiwan. Both of these dictatorships know that they will not face any real, meaningful resistance from Joe Biden.

Instead, Joe Biden is obsessed with trying to criminalize his own domestic political opponents, so he can eliminate them altogether and establish one-party rule over Americans. So he and his successors can act just like Vladimir Putin.

And while we are on the subject of Russia and American presidents, if President Donald Trump really was a Russian asset, as the Democrat Media constantly alleged for four years, then why the hell didn’t Russia invade Ukraine when Trump was president? Why did they wait for this weak, old, child-sniffer Joe Biden to dodder up to a microphone and mumble some meaningless words?

I am amazed that anyone with half a brain could ever believe the utter crap that comes out of NBC, CBS, ABC, NPR, PBS, MSDNC, Washington Post, New York Times etc. Everything these partisan outlets say and write is designed to promote one political party. They are not in the news business, they are in the propaganda and brainwashing business, and if in this day and age when there are so many different news and information outlets available to anyone with an iota of curiosity, you are nonetheless still listening to what these mainstream media outlets say, then you are brainwashed. Or incredibly lazy. Stick your finger in an electric socket and wake the hell up, before it is too late for you, for your retirement fund, and for your family members.

Everyone have a nice weekend, and enjoy the fabulous fireworks display in Ukraine over the coming days, brought to you by day dreaming, child-sniffing Joe Biden.

 

Yep…the Super Bowl was worth ignoring

Plenty of entertaining memes circulated Sunday about not missing the Super Bowl. People asking each other on article comment sections and in texts, “Do you even know who the teams are who are playing?”

Like a lot of other Americans, I had no idea which teams were playing in the Super Bowl. I didn’t care, and I was not going to spend the time to watch it,

Plenty of Americans were not enthusiastic about watching a professional sport they had once enjoyed, but now feel alienated from. And why wouldn’t they feel this way? Since 2016, all kinds of anti-America, anti-police, anti-capitalism, anti-Western Civilization behavior had been acted out at football games. Multi-millionaire football players whined and complained about problems they had not faced, ascribing “racism” to the very people paying exorbitant amounts to come and see them play, and buy their jerseys etc.

I don’t believe a human being can create a more antagonistic arrangement than what we watched unfold in football games since 2016. The spoiled players vs. their fans!

So what in fact did we miss in Sunday’s game? We got to not see the blathering talent-less ‘Eminem’ “take a knee,” the virtue signal of all virtue signals. Eminem was years late to the kneeling thing, but decided to do it anyhow. And NFL senior management knew he was going to do it, and they did nothing to oppose him. Just kicking more sand in the eyes of former NFL fans. Hey, NFL, it’s your own business you are burning down, not ours. When you treat your audience with disrespect, you lose us, you don’t hurt us.

Also present was a “Snoop Dog,” a talentless noisemaker known for his graphic threats of violence against America’s last president, his violent “songs” that promote murder and rape. Sure, the NFL is going to magnetically draw law-abiding citizens to its games with people like these as its mascots…

I turned on the TV to watch the latest episode of Meat Eater, but caught the Super Bowl after-game on-field interviews just in time to hear a sweet-looking football player named Douglas say “Glory to God, Glory to God” in response to the reporter’s question about how he felt about winning. And that was the kind of behavior that would attract me to watch a NFL game any day of the week. But unfortunately Douglas’ nice statement is too little, too late. After seven years of not watching NFL games, I see no reason yet to return.

I would rather fold laundry than watch an NFL game.

An idiot called Eminem pretends to care by taking a knee and disrespecting law-abiding Americans everywhere

An idiot called Snoop Dog acts out murdering President Trump, and yet is most welcome at the NFL Super Bowl halftime performance. Unacceptable double standard. Nope Dog

 

 

Several versions of this meme bounced around the textsphere last night. A lot of Americans felt liberated by not watching the America-hating NFL game

Kellyanne Conway’s figurehead on Jake Corman’s dead pirate ship

Kellyanne Conway, Trump advisor and advocate extraordinaire, has hired her political gun out to the Jake Corman for Governor campaign. What an odd couple, this highly principled, positive, and well spoken woman with this unprincipled, mean-spirited, spoiled, corrupt product of nepotism, Jake Corman.

It is easy for Pennsylvania conservatives to smack their foreheads and cry out “Why Kellyanne, WHY?” Because her action here is at a right-angle inconsistent with what she said and did when she was in the Trump Administration, where she fought daily against RINOs just like Jake Corman. You can’t find two more different people in politics than Conway and Corman…and yet, politics makes strange bedfellows.

I am willing to bet that Kellyanne Conway suffered a lot after the stolen 2020 election. I will bet that her private life and her finances took serious beatings, and I will also bet that she has been very nearly canceled out of just about every aspect of her prior life. She probably went from international spotlight articulate presidential spokeswoman and advocate for America First principles in January 2021, to almost a political nobody in January 2022.

That has to be tough to take. If this same kind of crushing lifetime cancellation landed on you or me, like all negativity when we went to restaurants or the library or the food store, we would be desperate to get some aspects of our former life back. It would be too painful to ignore, unless a person is substantially independently wealthy. And even then those ultra wealthy people tend to live inside their own weather system, so that even small disruptions to their personal lives are artificially magnified and extraordinarily painful to them. And if you aren’t independently wealthy, and I do not believe Conway is, then all the more so does an opportunity like this political consulting job with Corman become attractive.

I think we can all understand her needs and what this job provides her. There is no need to judge Conway harshly. And there is no need to take her seriously, either.

Thus, even a corrupt RINO like Jake Corman has something to offer Conway: some redemption, a small opportunity to re-enter public life with some dignity and public standing; some recognition of her former importance. And some big, big bucks.

Because we just know that the GOPe is writing her a huge check, because so much RINO-ism and continued political corruption is riding on the success or failure of a corrupt man like Corman. The GOPe and their little pet Jake Corman need every swinging awesome woman on deck they can get. I would not be surprised if Conway is being paid a million dollars or more for her campaign role as symbolic figurehead until Primary Day this Spring.

And what does Jake Corman’s campaign get out of spending crazy money on a figurehead like Kellyanne Conway? He gets some of that Donald Trump aura, some of that gen-u-ine all-America-First patriot that Jake Corman himself cannot produce and does not himself represent and can never have. Corman is too well known in Pennsylvania, and especially in his own senate district (where he was about to get primaried), as a corrupt phony and backstabber, to ever stand on his own two feet. After all, his entire career is due to his daddy being a state senator before him. Jake has literally never had a real job!

And oh, the irony of an anti-America RINO like Jake Corman trying to bathe himself in the stars-n-bars Trump glow, transmuted by Conway, because Corman is the primary reason why Trump’s voters never got an election recount in Pennsylvania. Corman not only did all he could to block a recount or an audit of the stolen 2020 election, but he then fired all of PA Senator Doug Mastriano’s senate staff when Mastriano got too close to starting an actual election audit.

Corman’s campaign is like an evil, rotting, dead pirate ship slipping through dark waters, trying desperately to attach a new figurehead to the bowsprit to fool voters from afar. Many people are sad to see Kellyanne Conway in this figurehead role for someone as gross as Jake Corman. I hope it is worth it, honey, because the Pirate Corman stench will never really rub off.

Welcome to PA.

Former President Trump advisor and spokeswoman, Kellyanne Conway

 

If political pirate Jake Corman had a ship, this evil, demonic skeleton would be its figurehead

What RINO Jake Corman is hoping his evil pirate ship’s figurehead will turn into with his hiring of Kellyanne Conway
