TRUMP TRIUMPHS

Trump Triumphs.jpg

What a night! What a GREAT day to be alive. I never know what to say on occasions such as these. Even though I wanted Trump to win and anticipate his win, I nonetheless find myself rather surprised. Some thoughts:

  • Crypto shitlords were out there and came out in force.  Based on the conversations that I personally took part in and conversations that overheard from time to time, it was clear to me that there were more people who understood the gravity of this election and had no intention of voting for a globalist, corporatist shill like Clinton over a nationalist maverick like Trump. However, much of Shitlord Nation felt cowed into silence by the bullying and the inquisitorial e-tactics of the #I’mWithHer crowd.
  • The Left is horrible at meme warfare.  This is clearly the New Right/Alt-Right’s forte. Perceiving the enthusiasm gap between (sometimes rabid) Trump supporters and (largely tepid) Clinton supporters, and also perceiving the success that the Right has had with such non-sequitur memes as Pepe and the hook-nosed Shylock, the Left seized upon Trump’s offhand comment about Clinton’s being a “nasty woman” in a failed attempt to meme the desirability of their patently shitty candidate and the inevitability of a Clinton victory into being. The fact that they had to derive such a subpar meme from the distracted musings of their archnemesis should have told them that they were doomed for failure. Nevertheless, a fawning and sycophantic press trapped in an echo chamber gave this meme far more attention than it actually merited. Which leads us to…
  • The Media is not in the business of reporting news, it is in the business of creating news and manufacturing faux consensus.  Rather than accurately identifying the nature of the zeitgeist, they tried to create an entirely new reality based on misrepresentation, aspersion casting and wishful thinking.
  •  The Media lies incessantly.  The MSM lied up until the last. They lied about Trump being a rapist, they lied about Clinton being the best candidate, they lied about Clinton being preferred over Sanders, they lied about Trump supporters being bigots, they lied about Clinton leading Trump even as he was polling ahead of her, they lied about the depths of Clinton’s corruption. Make no doubt about it. This election heralds the end of the MSM as we know it.
  • Third party bids are for faggots.  After this election, no one will ever take third parties in America seriously again. Trump won decisively even with asshole Gary Johnson playing spoiler. Third parties are typically infested with bitter nincompoops and faggots who think themselves righteous because they don’t like the “regressive Left” and think of the nation state as an unfortunate relic of the past while bowing to the gods of free trade, perpetual growth and marijuanas. Read: lolbertarians.
  • New Hampshire was a weird bellwether.  While viewing the election coverage, I couldn’t help but notice that NH was undeclared but seemed to be leaning red for much of the race. I found this interesting, as Clinton won the NH primary handily back in 2008 and Obama won the state both in 2008 and 2012. I realized that if a state that reliably left and thoroughly cucked was leaning red, that portended not so great things for Clinton. In fact, I thought to myself that this close call situation effectively meant that Trump was guaranteed the win. Of course, I was right.

I think that this win is great for the nation. In spite of all of the histrionics of the Left I think that the final analysis will show that this win served to temper some worse and far more destructive impulses that were in the groundswell while keeping a hard right reset/correction at bay for slightly longer. I know that the road ahead is still uncertain and rough, and that Trump detractors will seek ways to make his presidency a failure. While I refrain from placing my faith in man and while I know that hope is not a plan, I still hope for a great four years. I’m fairly certain that we’ll have it.

West Virginia & Nebraska Primary Results

VW & NE Primary Results

Trump continues to roll towards clinching the Republican nomination. He’s now only 150 delegates and a general election away from Making America Great Again. There’s not much to say in this regard. Suffice it to say that I eagerly await the Trumpening and his formal coronation in July, not least of all for the soul-rending pain that it will cause naysaying cuckservatives and pleb tier progs alike. #MAGA2016

Sanders did excellently in West Virginia, capturing 51.4% of the vote and 16 delegates. His win came as a shock to no one but the Shillary drones. It’s not hard to see how Sanders’ folksy, avuncular style and staunchly populist platform would be more appealing to solidly working class Appalachian types than Clinton’s elitist & corporatist stance. Sanders has been gradually gaining on Clinton and trails behind her only by 286 delegates. Presently, he is 953 delegates away from nomination. While it is the case that Clinton carries the bulk of the Party’s superdelegates, it’s also abundantly clear from the numbers that a Sanders nomination is far from an impossibility. In the absence of superdelegates, it would be a distinct probability. Sanders has a demonstrated track record of success and has been steadily closing the Clinton-Sanders delegate gap, which makes the repeated calls for him to drop out all the more puzzling.

It is my personal opinion that Sanders would prove a more difficult foe for Trump to vanquish than Hillary. He has fewer defects of character, is also anti open-borders poz (albeit for shitty commiejewfuck reasons), and offers a smorgasbord of gibsmedat for the enticement of his rainbow coalition of economically illiterate constituents. I believe that he would be more difficult for Trump to defeat because like Trump, he is highly effective at cutting through the autism of data and appealing to voters on a limbic, emotional level-something that Madame Nehru Jacket is utterly incapable of. 2016 will not be an election year decided on the basis of sterile facts and figures; it will be an election year powered by principles and vision.

Indiana Primary Reflections

The Indiana primary has been all around good news for the Trump Train. His decisive win, combined with Cruz’s withdrawal from the race, all but ensures his nomination at the Republican convention in July. There was no question that Trump was favored to win-and favored to win big-in Indiana, as he was polling strongly against Cruz and Kasich going into the race.  The scale of Cruz’s loss in Indiana is astounding:

Trump Indiana

 

Cruz was handed a crushing defeat, winning only in perhaps more Evangelical/tradcon strongholds of the state, who knows. Overall, the bulk of his victories took place in states where the primary processes were heavily brokered and highly undemocraticThere are 9 remaining contests leading up to the convention with 520 delegates up for grabs. Without Cruz playing obstructionist, there is no doubt that Trump will obtain the necessary 190 delegates and thus garner the nomination:

Republican Delegate Count

Kasich has always been an irrelevancy, a plant in the race only for the purpose of spoiling the race for Trump in Ohio. With Cruz gone and with Trump only 190 delegates away from securing the nomination outright, the Republican Establishment can no longer plausibly flirt with a brokered convention, a very good thing. The Establishment cannot deny Trump the nomination without openly engaging in chicanery that will further undermine the Party’s legitimacy/put it even further down the road towards schism. Overall, events in Indiana telegraph clearly the Republican base’s disgust with politics as usual and with the open borders/free trade/foreign intervention stances characterizing the Republican elite that has served only to dilute the national character, export jobs abroad by the millions, compressed wages, and dispossessed and impoverished the average American.

On the Democratic side of the equation, Sanders won in Indiana, but it’s unclear whether his win makes a difference to the bottom line:

Indiana Head to Head.jpg

Sanders currently has 1400 delegates: 1361 pledged delegates and 39 superdelegates. Clinton, by contrast has 2202 delegates: 1682 pledged delegates and 520 superdelegates. The Democratic nominee needs 2383 delegates to secure nomination. 1163 delegates remain and realistically speaking, Sanders would have to score just about every last one of them to stay alive:

Democratic Delegate Count

While superdelegates can support any candidate and remain uncommitted until the convention in July, the vast majority of those superdelegates are Party functionaries likely to back Clinton come hell or high water, as she is the Democratic Establishment’s clear choice. It’s hard to tell if Clinton is better or worse off for relying so heavily on these SDs. On the one hand, the SDs are convenient way to circumvent the political process and place a modicum of power back in the hands of the Democratic Party machine (to the extent that democracy matters, or is desirable). On the other hand, Clinton’s delegate to superdelegate margin is massive and her reliance on them is substantial. 23.6 % of her tally is comprised of superdelegates whereas only 2.7% of Sanders’ tally is; it seems as though her win depends upon the caprices of a few people with the ability to switch sides at any moment. Improbable, but far from impossible.

An interesting development is how quickly the media has accepted the inevitability of Trump’s nomination, transitioning from Trump denialism and shifting gear into manufacturing reasons as to. . .the inevitability of Trump’s loss in a Clinton-Trump face-off in November. (See here, here, and here). While Trump may be trailing Clinton, he has been steadily closing that gap. Furthermore, now that Trump no longer has to spend time and resources rebuffing Republican competitors, he can train all barrels on Clinton. Clinton has failed at everything she has put her hands to. She is churlish, inauthentic, and utterly lacking in charisma. Her political career is entirely the byproduct of her husband’s political career. Left to her own extemporaneous devices, she’s liable to say things that piss off the various elements of her fractious and childish base. Trump by contrast is a YUGE business success who is relatable, jovial, and ultra charismatic. He also doesn’t have to worry about the hurt feelings of a perpetually aggrieved base-much of his appeal comes from his reputation as a straight talker. Barring some catastrophic skeletons-in-the-closet revelation, I think Trump has a great chance of winning the general.

It’s clear that Clinton stands for nothing more than the status quo of globalism, expansive government, and demographic replacement, propositions which the average American has decreasing tolerance for. I think that a Clinton presidency will serve to accelerate the decline, which is probably a welcome thought to the accelerationist set. At any rate, it’ll be interesting to see how things shake out over the next few months.

Edit: 2:57 PM CST: Kasich is out

 

Super Tuesday Celebrations

Super Tuesday Results.png

Super Tuesday has come and gone, leaving little question as to the parties’ presidential nominees. To the felicity of fashy goys and the consternation of shitlibs, the Trump juggernaut continues to roll along and roll over its insipid & limp-dicked opponents.  The Left is clearly beginning to feel the Bern burn and bracing for impact, as their best argument against the inevitable Trumpenreich is #makeDonaldDrumpfAgain and their finest candidate is a Machiavellian corporate shill, a ghoulish crone with a track record of failure.

Though schadenfreude is divine, the pragmatic implications of Super Tuesday are even more delectable. Trump’s unexpectedly successful bid for the presidency has created something of a win-win situation.  The Republican Establishment is mortified by the possibility of  Trump presidency, scandalized at the prospect of not having a candidate that they will be able to control body and soul.  The Republican Party is also a worthless and moribund institution that must die, as its prime directives for the last 20 years have been concession and conciliation rather than the conservation of even the least of conservative values.  If Trump secures the nomination (as he rightfully should) and is not cucked by the Establishment, he has essentially won the presidency.  If he wins the presidency and remains faithful to even 50% of his campaign platform, that would likely be sufficient to retard the decline, expel obstructionist Party malcontents, and perhaps even salvage the nation.

If instead-and I believe this to be the likelier scenario-due to some back room Establishment chicanery Trump fails to secure the nomination and Cruzio is pushed through over the unequivocally expressed preferences of the people (thus ensuring a Shillary win), the system’s fraudulence and the Republican Party’s fecklessness will be revealed.  The result will be twofold: (1) a Party schism sounding the death knell of the Republican Party in its present incarnation (2) the generation of a crisis of faith across the American political system that will spur Americans out of their passivity and into thinking critically about implications, next steps, and active measures.

Perhaps I’m being too sanguine.  But it’s still a great time to be alive.

Donald Trump, Fascist?

Donald Trump is a fascist!” is the accusation that has been on many a spittle flecked lip ever since Herr Trump has risen to electoral prominence by advocating such radical courses of national action as enforcing national borders against waves of illegal immigrants seeking to sack the nation via dole dependency and wage compression, selectivity in terms of those who are allowed access to the country, and governing in a manner informed by principles of logic and reason while allowing facts to speak for themselves. Certainly, Trump appears to flirt with reaction: the patriarch of a large family who has run an unapologetically jingoistic presidential campaign, who asserts the nation’s right to sovereignty and to continued existence on its own terms rather than on the terms of the cuckmunity community of nations. All of this is quite laudable. Unlike the other candidates who stand for suicide by open borders, capitulation, and corporatism, Trump stands for nationalism, vigor, and bellicosity – if and when necessary.

Naturally, to the thoroughly cucked any display of will, fortitude, or pride will seem fascist, preferring as they do to lead a life of abdication, weakness, and shame. The world “fascist” has been neutered & rendered meaningless phrase; it is now an empty slur used to discredit rather than define. Nevertheless, one cannot help but think that a truly fascist Trump, a Trump who fully embraced both the political and spiritual aspects of fascism, who upheld tradition, blood, soil, and continuity would be a wonder to behold. It would be truly galvanizing.

Firstly, there is no longer anything to be gained politically from centrism or moderation. These days, all of the action is at the poles. This explains the popularity of Sanders on the Left and Trump on the Right. To some extent, both parties realize that to remain relevant they must appeal to “extremist” factions within their respective bases, or at the very least, ride the reactionary wave to victory. Secondly, the demoralized populace longs for candidates who embody higher and more noble ideals, so long have they been mired in cravenness and baseness. The people seek to be led by an individual who is more than just a statesman, as it has become abundantly clear that mere statecraft is insufficient to halt and reverse the decline. It is quite fair to say that the people seek a leader in possession of an elevated type of spirit who will drive the nation to achieve something more transcendent.

Liberalism’s failures are becoming apparent even to the least sophisticated who intuit that something is amiss with the world but nonetheless lack the critical tools to diagnose the malady or the words to articulate how it has destroyed the world. People seek genuine values and are instead plied with ersatz ones. This yearning has contributed in large part to Trump’s appeal, and it is something that he ought to embrace more fully. He should become more Right & truly relate to the people in a spiritual way. The average American finds himself in a world that has toppled the noble and the upright only to replace those values with the anti values of pusillanimity and spiritual poverty, to hideous result. Not fully comprehending this, he seeks political and economic solutions. Of course, this extends beyond the merely political. But the current zeitgeist – this thirst for political change – I believe masks a deeper desire for a more profound sort of change. The leader who understands this and engages with this can channel the restless collective energy and redirect it towards more useful endeavors and higher aims.

The people are tired of being given license while the elites strip them of freedom. They are discombobulated by the civilization’s gradual slide into entropy and seek order. The radical individualism advanced by the various merchants of liberalism have resulted in a deracinated people who believe that it is their duty to systematically spay and neuter themselves and in the “bravery” of self mutilation. All which are symptoms of a debased spiritual condition. For Trump to openly take a stand against degeneracy and moral inversion and rootlessness, to call for a cultural reformation that would edify the nation in addition to his political platform would be a fashinating fascinating development.

Democracy as Farce

Take a gander at this voter registration form. I requested mail forwarding services, as I’m moving soon. I was prompted to update my voter information at the same time. Click to expand. Take note of the highlighted areas.

Voter Registration Form

Some observations:

  • If you have neither a state ID nor a social security number, you may still register to vote. You’ll just be assigned a “unique identifier” by the state.
  • Yet, you must promise that you’re an American citizen, because only American citizens can vote. So if you’re not a citizen, you shouldn’t submit the form. That would be fraud. But if you have no documentation proving citizenship (which would cast reasonable doubt upon your being an American citizen), the state will nonetheless provide you with a “unique identifier” enabling you to vote if you do submit the form, however fraudulently.
  • If this analysis is correct, is American citizenship any longer a requirement to vote in American elections?
  • All you need is WiFi to register to vote nowadays, but liberals always conveniently leave this out when they bemoan the disenfranchising effects of voter ID laws. While voter registration may be done at the state level and may vary, if other states have voter registration processes as lax as the one that Illinois has, how else would the states be able to verify citizenship except for requesting identification?
  • Unless of course, the aim is to obscure the question of citizenship so as to make it possible for any Tomas, Enrique, and Mohammed who seeps through our porous borders to vote, tipping the scales in favor of the Left. Which it is.
  • Corollary: what’s to stop non citizens from voting and subverting the American political process to their own ends?
  • It’s pretty clear that American citizenship is becoming increasingly meaningless.
  • When the Left tries to concern troll Americans into thinking that they’re delusional for thinking that voter registration fraud is a problem, why does everyone accept it? Sidebar: check out the name & credentials of the chick peddling the argument.
  • Donald Trump is still right.

Female Suffrage = Disaster

A female friend of mine excitedly posted a clip of Trotsky Bernie Sanders announcing his 2016 presidential candidacy.

Conversation a

The speech was nothing spectacular, just the usual pabulum and populist claptrap: the wage gap, income inequality, and the government expansion that would be part and parcel of rectifying these disparities. I decided to chime in with some sober logic:

Conversation aa

I even threw the old dog some bones. Concessions notwithstanding, I took issue most of his platform, as its realization would necessitate further expansion of an already bloated federal government through the mechanisms of increased taxation, social engineering, meddling in the private sector, and increased deficit spending. The U.S. is kicking this debt can further and further down the road. Given his socialist platform, a Sanders presidency will see unprecedented levels of debt assumption. I pointed out that one concerned about the plight of the average American should be concerned about the dangers of an intrusive government that would expand to regulate the minutiae of private life as well as the economically erosive effects of inflation, as the average American has a hedge against neither. My logic was not welcome here:

Conversation IIConversation IIa

Straw men, red herrings, non sequiturs, misapprehension of the arguments, and emotionalism galore. “He is not talking about spending without creating revenue.” Well, maybe. But if by “creating revenue” she meant “increasing taxation,” is it likely that increased taxation of corporations and the wealthy could ever generate “revenue”  sufficient to service $18 trillion in debt? She has to know that the definition of wealthy inevitably will be expanded down the income scale in order to generate this “revenue.” Furthermore, if the country will never be able to generate enough revenue to close the deficit, and a candidate talks about “expanding [insert government programs here],” is it not clear that will require deficit spending? Is it not clear that such proposals will require increased government spending, which will in turn trigger cascades of inflation, which will ultimately harm the poor to middle class?

My assumptions were solid. Sanders never even mentioned tackling our abyss of a deficit, presumably because national solvency is of no import to him. Considering that much of his platform revolves around increased government spending, I have to assume that the fact that the nation is at the brink of insolvency is not something that keeps him up at night. Also, I never mentioned libertarianism or Rand Paul.

Also, note the “I don’t care about the platform-I’d be perfectly OK with a charismatic strongman dictator who radically and unilaterally revised the laws of our republic to achieve my policy preferences regardless of the price and of the damage to the nation’s integrity.” So, she would vote on a candidate not based upon the feasibility of his/her platform planks, but solely based upon how she feels about what he/she is saying. Further note the “government regulation of my vagina” non sequitur. I spoke specifically and exclusively about the possible economic ramifications of a Sanders presidency based on the planks of his platform. Clearly it’s acceptable to her that the nation continue along its current suicidal trajectory, so long as she is able to access birth control. I would say: “who cares about IUDs when you’re living in caves?” She would think that this was a fair price to pay for “gender equality.” Agree to disagree, as they say.

Try as I might, I just couldn’t muster outrage at the thought of not having the “right” to slaughter my unborn. I tried to refocus:

Conversation IV

I tried to rally with some more salient points and even made some more concessions, gracious person that I am.  I acknowledged that the wealthy do have access to several taxpayer subsidized gimmedats that I would prefer to see disappear. I even agreed that Rand Paul was kind of a putz. I had to disagree with the importance of birth control though. It’s a complete nonissue thrown out there to distract the idiot masses from the dire condition that this country is in and to foment resentment against men and masculinity. It’s sad that such a smart girl fell for it. She had the last word:

Conversation V

Again, missing the point. Increased taxation will not cause a meltdown; this much is true. However, my argument is that the meltdown will be here in short order if this country does nothing to manage its current debt and to avoid taking on more debt. The argument is that increased taxation will be insufficient to fill the hole. While no one is arguing that we should strip grandma of her SS benefits, we do wonder whether Social Security will even be able to pay grandma what she was promised once she becomes of age. Bernie explicitly said that he would expand a program that we already know to be en route to insolvency. We argue against the wisdom of such a move.

Nor am I personally concerned about the “woes of the 1%.” What I am concerned about are the woes of the entire nation if we follow Sanders the Pied Piper down this garden path to hell.

The lesson here: women will always vote with their emotions, even the smart ones. They will always yearn for the avuncular political patriarch to lead them, no matter how much they doth protest. They impugn logic. They will always elect to have security over freedom, they will always choose the candidate who promises to expand the state at the expense of the individual. They will never be aware of what is actually at stake, they will never distill an issue down to brass tacks. They will always put their personal needs and wants ahead of the well-being of the nation and of civilization as a whole. This conversation is precisely why giving them the vote was, like, totes a terrible move.
