Burn It Down – Burn It All Down

war clown1

This is the kinda shit that makes you pray for the Zombie Apocalypse:

On Monday, Weekly Standard editor-in-chief Bill Kristol tweeted out what the rest of the Republican establishment is thinking: better Hillary than Donald. Here’s the tweet:

Kristol isn’t alone. As I wrote at Daily Wire today, Politico’s Jeff Greenfield says, “If the operatives I talked with are right, Trump running as a Republican could well face a third-party run – from the Republicans themselves.” That follows last Thursday’s Politico column from former New Jersey governor Christine Todd Whitman, who compared Trump to Hitler and called him “evil,” and last Wednesday’s Politico column reporting that Jeb Bush’s aides “began looking into the possibility of making a clear break with Trump – potentially with the candidate stating that, if Trump were the nominee, Bush would not support him.”

Last week, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said that former Mississippi governor Haley Barbour “and a lot of the Republican leaders would much rather Hillary Clinton be President of the United States than have Donald Trump represent them as a Republican.” And in November, The Hill reported that “GOP establishment donors have confided to The Hill that for the first time in recent memory, they find themselves contemplating not supporting a Republican nominee for president.”

I’m old enough to remember when it was scandalous for Trump not to pledge his allegiance to the eventual Republican nominee. Now, day after day, reports from party leaders leak, stating that should Trump gain control over the party apparatus, they will simply smash the machinery.

Eight years ago I was proud to call myself a yellow dog Democrat. I had voted straight-ticket Democrat in every election for over twenty years. The only time there was a question who I would vote for was during the primaries if there was a contested nomination.

If Obama had won the 2008 nomination fair and square I would probably have supported him in the general election because I believed in party unity.

But during the 2008 primary the Democrat party establishment (DEMe) made clear that they didn’t give a fuck about what the voters wanted. The DEMe wanted Obama, and they damn well would do whatever it took to make sure that they got Obama.

Now it’s deja vu all over again except this time it’s the GOPe and they are powerless to Stop Trump so they are gonna take their ball and go home. To paraphrase a notorious statement by our military in Vietnam, they are going to “destroy the party in order to save it.”

Fuck ’em. Burn it down. Burn it all down.

We will never see serious political reform in this country until we break the stranglehold that the current kleptocracy has on Washington D.C. We can switch back and forth between the GOPe and the DEMe until the cows die from global cooling and nothing will change.

This is not about electing Donald Trump. He is not our savior. But he may be the means by which we can gain control of one of the two Kleptocrat parties.

Ted Cruz would be a better president, but Ted Cruz doesn’t have the billions of dollars of his own money he would need to fight a successful campaign. The only other candidate in either party who is not a member of the Kleptocracy is Rand Paul, and he is nuttier than a Payday bar doesn’t stand a chance.

Hold your nose and vote for Trump chaos.

    One problem we keep having is when we finally manage to pry a seat loose from the Kleptocracy (usually by death or retirement) the replacement is quickly seduced and corrupted by the Dark Side.

    Pretty much every elected official in Washington DC first got there promising to clean the place up.

    Great thread. I disagree about Cruz though. He would not be a better president and I say that because I would always be wondering if Heidi’s ideas were also his ideas. And if they are, we’d be in big trouble.


    Mrs. Cruz is one of the co-authors, for the Council on Foreign Relations, of the plan to merge the US, Canada AND Mexico into one country with a merged economy and security apparatus, and free movement of workers throughout.

    Below the article about the document, is a list of its authors, in which Heidi Cruz is included.

    one good reason why the Citizens are going to Trump.

    I left the democratic party after almost 50 years. I did not do this lightly. To me Country will always come before party. I am an Independent now. Today’s republican party is really no better then the 2008 democratic party. To hell with who the people want as president, it better be who we want. Does anyone remember the last time the republicans did anything for the people they are supposed to represent? Maybe the 50 states should just ignore DC. It is not a state anyway.
    The screw you in your face by both parties is going to blowup and get really ugly. This is not the time for both parties to ignore the people of this country, We feel like we are under attack from enemies within and without the country and do not trust this government a little bit

    It’s heartbreaking what the Democratic party’s become after letting themselves be hijacked by the vile progs, BLM, SJW, OWS and other whiny sh*theads without a clue how lucky they are to live in a country that allows them to be whiny sh*theads. Thanks Obama !

    The GOPe has never cared what kind of scum-sucking leech represents them at the High Trough before…. So long as HE was a leech.

    They are not scared of Trump the nominee, they see what I see – the nomination is going to be The Establishment’s (GOPe and DEMe) only chance to stop Trump. There are a lot of Dems out there who will support Trump – I think if gets the Nom, the general will be a cakewalk and he’ll win in a landslide. Both parties are nervous wrecks right now, but only one really has the apparatus to stop him (before the voters step in).

    …. But I am hopeful. Hopeful there will be enough smart scum-sucking leeches who will see their opportunity to side with Trump and ride his victory wave to riches of their own…. And with any luck Trump will use them to win, the demand competence or go away. Hey, it can’t be any worse then hoping a DEMe or GOPe elected president will get a conscience.

    • Somebody says:

      I agree Trump probably appeals to some dems, but if the GOPe runs an establishment candidate it will result in another Clinton presidency. If the GOPe really runs a well known establishment candidate third party, there is a good number of republicans that will vote 3rd party, they will see it as playing it “safe”. As in…..I don’t want Hillary, Trump scares me because Fox news and others keep telling me how terrible he is……so I’ll vote for Bush or whomever the 3rd party candidate is……yep that’ll be the “safe” choice, the “adult” choice.

      My mom would vote for Jeb! even if it was 3rd party and she’s a straight R ticket voter. My mom lives, eats and breathes Fox news, seriously it’s on 24/7 at her house. She can’t stand Trump, refers to him as a goon. I know other R’s like that who believe all kinds of things about Trump. To be fair, I think if Rand Paul were the nominee they’d feel the same way. There is a contingent out there made up of country club, elite pundit, wall street type republicans, plus people like my mom. I’m betting it totals somewhere between 20 and 25% of the R’s. If you peel off that big of a chunk you end up with Hillary most likely.

      It is possible for Trump to pull off a victory, but he’d have to run HARD against the establishment of both parties. If he convinced enough dems that a vote for Hillary is a vote for corruption and K street, it’s possible he could pull off a victory.

    True story.

  15. Folks, just chill. Cruz is probably going to be on the ticket, likely as VP. Trump needs him to win. He brings in the evangelical vote and will ensure a win in Florida due to the Cuban vote. That equals lock on Ohio and Florida, the must-wins. It could have been Rubio (and it might still be) but I don’t think he’s worked hard enough to claim a solid constituency that is needed to win the election.

    • leslie says:

      Rubio is taking hits from all sides right now, too. He is not doing the work in his campaign just like he does not do the work in the Senate. (Much like the current pResident did/does). I was watching Rubio and thinking about how easy presidenting looks when “done” by bronco. Golf at least every weekend, vacations in exotic/expensive places, naps, fund-raising, avoidance of work, free Noble Peace Prizes, appearances on all the major comedy show. Shoot, I’d run for that job.
      Yet it still could be Trump-Rubio. I’d prefer Trump-Cruz. But you already knew that.

  16. DandyTIger says:

    I’m not sure I see any of the main GOPe candidates running as third party. That would do more to destroy the party than Trump being the nominee (win or lose). But I can see them putting up someone to ensure Hillary (or any establishment person) wins over Trump. But then again, they’re pretty desperate.

  17. piper says:

    Concerns anyone: I refuse to get on the band wagon for anyone at this time. Too much hype and screaming, few facts and plans coming from anyone. The pitfalls of ‘saviors’ mentality.

    “Trump’s entire case is propelled by the notion that a single (self-identified) competent, strong-willed president, without any perceptible deference to the foundational ideals of the nation, will be able to smash any cultural or political obstacles standing in the way of making America Great Again.

    Many of the same people anxious about the authoritarian overtones of Trump’s appeal were unconcerned about the intense adulation that adoring crowds showered on Obama in 2008.
    But this is certainly not the first time we’ve seen voters adopt a cultish reverence for a strong-willed presidential candidate without any perceptible deference to the foundational ideals of the country whose personal charisma was supposed to shatter obstacles standing in the way of making America great again. Many of the same people anxious about the authoritarian overtones of Trump’s appeal were unconcerned about the intense adulation that adoring crowds showered on Obama in 2008, though the spectacle featured similarly troubling signs—the iconography, the messianic messaging, and the implausible promises of government-produced comfort and safety. Just as President Trump fans will judge every person on how nice or mean they are to Trump, so too, those rooting against Obama were immediately branded unpatriotic or racist.

    Obama’s inevitable failure to live up to the hype has had many repercussions, and none of them healthy.”

      I have training in hypnosis, so I am really enjoying reading Scott Adams. My cousin Ronnie http://www.ronkleinonline.com/ He was an instructor for the American Hypnosis Training Academy, so I got the discount for relatives for my training 🙂

      Hypnosis is persuasion on a deep cognitive level, and The Donald is doing that to a lot of people.
      I don’t care that he said schlonging. What will happen now, is that people will associate that word with Hillary, and Obama, consciously or not. Let’s face it, Trump could have used a much worse word, but he chose not to, but people will think of worse words, because it is a natural association. He did more damage to Hillary than he did to himself.
      And just FYI, Schlong is a Yiddish word, derived from Old German meaning snake.
      So what Trump said, in New Yorkese, was that Hillary was snaked by Obama, and she was.

    This tells me who I am NOT supporting. Not even as VP.

    The CFR Endorses Ted Cruz

    Due to Senator Cruz’s proven commitment to the CFR’s initiatives and his proven record of progressive ideals and moderate policy positions, the CFR is formally announcing its full endorsement of Senator Cruz for President of the United States and the future North American Union.


      • Dora says:

        Maybe it has to do with the time during which I grew up, but I just don’t go for all the global stuff. I believe in American Sovereignty. I do not pledge my allegiance to Mexico or Canada or the UN. That’s why I support Trump. He is the only candidate who is putting the American people first. It has been a long time since I’ve seen such a patriotic candidate and he gives me hope. Obviously, I am not the only one. There are millions of us. I hope we are not all being fooled, as Piper believes might be the case. But then, even if we are, things can’t be any worse than they are now.

        By campaigning as an American conservative and also supporting the creation of the North American Union, Cruz is being very deceitful to his supporters. They should know his true position.

    Obama and Hillary and their weapons of mass distraction


    Denialists will ignore the allegiances of terrorists like Nidal Hassan and Syed Farook to Jihadists to focus on individual pathologies. If that doesn’t work, they’ll pull back to a planetary focus and blame the weather patterns of the entire planet. They’ll zoom in with great detail on weapons purchases while ignoring the ideology that motivated the attacks. They’ll have a hundred different explanations for each attack that fail to account for the phenomenon of Islamic terrorism as a whole.

    These aren’t reasonable arguments. Taken together they form a pattern of conspiracy theories.

    The most basic aspect of the conspiracy theory is that it bypasses the obvious reasonable explanation and vanishes down a rabbit hole of complicated alternative explanations that make no real sense but allow the conspiracists to avoid dealing with the implications of the actual event that took place.

    This is why Trump scares the living daylights out of people in power. he breaks right through their denial, and addresses the problem directly. He might mess up some of their deals, and upset their applecarts.

    Posts like this are why I love Ace:

    One point I’ve been making on Twitter is that Rubio deserves to lose for believing the self-serving, ridiculous claims made by the Republican Consultant Class in the aftermath of the 2012 election. If you remember, soon after that loss, the party apparatus put forth a claimed “post-mortem” of the defeat, and talked about their plan… to do all the stupid shit they’ve done between 2013 and last week.

    And most of us were screaming about it at the time, and we continue screaming about it.

    And you who listened to us, inside the party? No one.

    People like David Brat knocked off Eric Cantor and still the did not, and would not, listen.

    There was simply no moving them off their ideological priors that they were going to sell the same shit sandwich they’d been trying to sell us since 2006. This time, they were going to give us the Comprehensive Immigration Shit Sandwich, and this time, they’d force it down our throats with a stick and a sponge, because this time, all the Corporate Class people were going to give Jeb Bush so much damn money he’d “shock and awe” all other alternatives out of the race.

    That itself only brought in new recruits to the rebellion — you could say that Jeb Bush’s candidacy is Just What the Tea Party Wants (TM).

    You could even say that the Tea Party is showing videos of Jeb Bush as a recruitment tool.

    And still, no matter how much we reject Jeb Bush — and we don’t just reject him as Jeb Bush, although he is a weak candidate; we reject him chiefly as the avatar of the Corporate Class/Consultant Class’ high-handedness and unearned dominance in the party — they still don’t, or rather won’t, take the message.

    I have come to believe that all this arguing about who could win the general is cynical and wishcasting. Because I don’t believe the elite care, really, who can win the general election. Frankly, Mike Huckabee, a guy I don’t like and neither does the Corporate Class, could be well-positioned to win a general, but I don’t hear the Corporate Class agitating for him.

    All this crap about Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio being great general election candidates is cynical, dishonest nonsense designed for one goal: To “Win” the argument on immigration without having to have the argument at all.

    There are people in are party who favor Open Borders. They simply do. But they don’t argue in favor of it; rather they argue on collateral matters, such as Marco Rubio’s alleged strength in a general election, so that they’ll win on the immigration issue on unrelated issues (the issue of the supposed electability of Marco Rubio and unelectability of all persons not named Marco Rubio).

    Thus, they win the argument without ever having to have made the argument in the first place.

    If I saw a Republican making the open borders argument straightly and forthrightly I think I’d plotz.

    Instead it’s always this passive-aggressive, around-the-edges nonsense about “electabiity.” But as David Frum notes, most Hispanics don’t vote Democrat because of Democrats’ stance on illegal immigration (and note that Hispanics who vote aren’t here illegally — at least the ones legally entitled to vote).

    Most Hispanics vote Democrat because they are Democrats — they favor more social spending and a bigger government. They also, increasingly, favor the Democrat position on social issues.

    The crackpot notion of the Republican Consultant Class was that Hispanics were all ultra-Catholic (that’s itself a broad generalization which would be called “racist” by sensitive or cynical souls) and that their natural social conservatism would draw them into the Republican camp, and make them more favorable to economic conservatism.

    Instead, the exact opposite has happened, which was always predictable: Hispanics’ general support of economic progressivism has drawn them into the Democrat camp, and made them more favorable to social progressivism, on top of their already-baked-in-the-cake support for economic progressivism.

    So, they already were Democrats on economics and the role of government, and now they’re becoming Democrats on gay marriage and other social issues too.

    But if we offer up a lukewarm version of the Democrats’ Open Borders policy, they’ll suddenly start voting Republican?

    Why? Why would they do that?

    As many people have noted, you can’t beat the Democrat Party when it comes to pandering with government money or government favors: Not only are they willing to bribe voters, they are ideologically committed to the idea that bribing their voters is the entire raison d’etre of the Democrat/Socialist cause.

    They’re eager to get into a bribery match with the GOP.

    Why would the GOP also be eager for this contest?

    My fear is this: It is already perilous to cross the Hispanic vote, as the Consultant Class (correctly) tells us.

    Now, if we increase that bloc by 12 million in a go, you tell me how it becomes, somehow, easier to resist further demands for an open border policy, and further demands we stop all border enforcement.

    What I fear, and many others fear I think, is that this 12 million will certainly not be the last: In fact, they’re the tipping point to vote in the next 12 million, and then they’ll combine together, 24 million demanding the inflow of 24 million more, and on, and on, and on.

    Why wouldn’t that happen? If the consultant class is right, and the open borders is a crucial issue to Hispanics, why would they stop wanting open borders after 12 million, or 24 million, or any other arbitrarily large numbers of new immigrant citizens?

    If a man believes that bread is crucial to his diet, why would he stop at just 12 loaves?

    And still the Corporate Class natters on, singing the same old song: Just give people who favor the Democrat Socialist-Welfare state the right to vote, and somehow, this will result in them voting a party which supposedly stands against the Democrat Socialist-Welfare state, out of gratitude or feeling “accepted” or whatnot.

    That’s not going to happen. Giving 12 million illegal immigrants — among the poorest of workers, already primed to be natural Democrats based on cultural assumptions and expectations of government’s purpose — will make 11 million new Democrat voters and 1 million persuadably contrarian independent voters, who we could bring over to our side if we “moderate” our already moderate economic prescriptions.

    That’s the consultant and corporate classes’ plan for success.

    As I said, this has nothing to do with winning. This only has to do with their class-based more that anything having remotely to do with race must be “racist,” even if one’s reasons for a position are offered on very straightforward non-racial grounds.

    It’s about them feeling uncomfortable at dinner parties — and that’s all it is.

    That’s all it is. That’s all it’s ever been. In fact, that’s 90% of politics — politics, especially now, is more about a declaration of one’s social and cultural mores than about actual policy.

    And I get that, and I understand human vanity and I understand the human need to comport with the herd. And I don’t really think that makes people “sheep;” in practical terms, one probably is more impacted (on a gut level) by the reactions of people you actually know to your politics than to the actual economic and legal effects of politics.

    But that still doesn’t make the Go Along To Get Along Swelly At Cocktail Parties Republicans right.

    I love a good rant.
