Super Tinfoil Ides of March Tuesday Extravaganza!


“… Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses…”

(Juvenal, Satire 10.77-81)

Well the big day is finally here – yet another “Super” Tuesday, when the Gods of Politics give us a shit-show extraordinaire to sway our support to the candidate of their choice, so long as it isn’t the one who has a majority of votes.

We are instructed to pay close attention to the gladiators and eventually pick a winner, when all the while the real slug-fest is happening in the Tribune of the Plebs among the Senators, and in the Imperial Palace among the Donors, the Romneys, Bushes and other elites.  The MSM executives, acting as the Praetorian Guard, line the walls of the Passaggio di Commodo, or the secret passage that connects the Colosseum to the Imperial Palace where some say Caligula’s crazy ass got whacked .

 IdesThis time around, we get a YUUUGE treat!  Super Duper Tuesday is on The Ides of March, and we all know what that means – the NeverTrump folks are working overtime to assassinate the rogue frontrunner before he gets another delegate.  Cruzus Terriblus is lying his ass off, and Little Marcus says he will never stop campaigning, hoping that nipping at Trumpus Maximus’s heels is going to get him somewhere…

 Now its the morning of the big contest, and Trumpus Maximus continues to prevail.  The Senators, the Imperial Family of Donors and Other Assholes are wringing their hands, while the Praetorian Guard – the Kristols, the Maddows, and various other Stephanopoulae – are planning on ambushing The Trumpus if and when he wins the game. But the insignificant little people that this circus has been designed to distract aren’t taking the bait.  One thing has become clear:  If the people have their way, the only corpse on the Colosseum floor will be that of the most powerful family of all – The Neocons.

This event may signal the end of the Bush Republicans, and that could mean the beginning of what history will later refer to as “The Great Unraveling”.  In a last ditch effort to survive, the Neocons have joined forces with their life-long enemy, The Progressives. Together, they hope to eliminate the threat to their empire and preserve the (so far) endless looting of tax monies they have been enjoying all those years. 

BernieThe Progressives have their own problems.  Soon to be octogenarian and professional sponge, Bernardus of Sanders, has emerged from obscurity and taken over the supporters of The Progressives, who in the past successfully installed their own empty toga, Barackus the Flimsy, whose reign has been a disaster.

The Neocons have another dilemma – it seems that many within their ranks are secretly planning to join the rag-tag army of citizens and bring support to The Trumpus.  Their names aren’t out there, but whispers of their defection continue to get louder each day.  Rumor has it that Mitt Romney is in a constant state of flux, changing his magic undies four or five times a day as he soils them with each poll.  John Boehner is crying in his bourbon and Glenn Beck has locked himself in his bathroom, threatening to end his own life in the tub with a Bick Lady Shaver.

My advice to all of you who have a circus scheduled in your home state today is that if you are indeed committed to ending the reign of the Neocons or the upturning of the Progressives, your vote today is only the beginning.  If you succeed, you have to be sure that the candidate of your choice can not only win today, but also eventually make it down the passageway to the Imperial Palace and actually accomplish something when they get there.  The odds will be stacked against you because the Elite are not exactly going to quietly disappear into the night.

Our recent history shows that once the Great Battle of November is won, the victory you hoped would free you from enslavement might actually become impotent without your continued support.  Picking a winner is only the beginning – the real work begins when those who would make him impotent spring into action.

i-won1We already know what its like to have the ruling class pick our leader.  The only way to avoid the fate of the Progressives under the reign of Barackus the Flimsy is to flex your muscles at the polls, year after year, midterm after midterm, and day after day against the MSM.  True change is never effected easily – if we truly want to get corruption out of Washington, we have to first admit that its not going to happen in four or eight years.

 Knowing that, put your finest toga on and get your ass to the Colosseum today.  It will be your thumb that determines the fate of the contenders, so vote wisely.  The decision is simple:  Which of them has the wherewithal, the inner strength and the most effective  arsenal of advisors, stamina and sheer will to sustain a long battle that will only be won when the last leech is purged from the swamp.

Good luck and may the gods be with you!

    Great post! Welcome to the TCH front page!

  2. votermom says:

    Also my bookhorde post today is a good companion to yours, if I do say so myself. 😉

      I can’t be sure, but I suspect that it’s either Bernie Sanders or Mel Brooks in the crowd, repeatedly. Oh, but don’t answer until others guess!

        Just so you know I had to wrestle my youngest grandbaby in order to post my answer! Also, hubby says no, no that’s not it and I said hell yes it is.

        • Lulu says:

          That is called a trident. But close enough. What about the wolf head lying on the arena floor? And man buns (on their heads not butts). The man buns are getting the worst of it.

          • Somebody says:

            I saw the wolf head and thought it looked out of place, but what would it be symbolizing?

            Ah, wait…….the wolf in sheep’s clothing? I have my own idea of who the wolf in sheep’s clothing in the republican primary is, but others may disagree……it’s not Rubio, he’s been grinning his wolfie grin, scratching his fleas and howling all along. At least that’s how I see Rubio, but then again I’m a Floridian. I see Ted as the wolf in sheep’s clothing, Mr. Outsider, Mr. Tea Party, Mr Constitutionalist, bought and paid for with Wall Street money, establishment jumping on the bandwagon and doesn’t defend the 1st amendment……but maybe I’m too harsh.

      AND THE BREADWINNERS ARE: (drum roll) – anyone who noticed the Trump hair on the helmet and the man buns which represent the FSA (Free Shit Army) getting they asses kicked.

    You did good Anthony. You should write more often.

    Great read, Anthony!

    Brilliant post, Anthony!

    This was great fun to read1

  11. DandyTIger says:

    Love the post. Today is the big day where us peasants get to be rude to the ruling class. But most importantly, it’s only the beginning of of the long push up the hill.

  12. Myiq2xu says:

    If Kasich wins Ohio then Trump should drop out.

  13. Myiq2xu says:

    This is hillarious:

    I should reply with a link to one of his anti-Hillary screeds from 8 years ago.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Talk about short and selective memories. Priceless.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      He deleted the worst one, but I found a copy at DU:

      John Aravosis (Americablog) FREAKS OUT! And says what many of us here are thinking
      The title is “Go away, you horrible human being”


      Good God. What is wrong with her? The Clintons and their campaign staff don’t give a damn that they are now hurting our electoral chances in the fall against McCain and against the Republicans in Congress. Their campaign isn’t happening in some vacuum, and they know it. Our candidates can’t fundraise because of her. Obama can’t focus on McCain because of her. Obama is wasting money on HER, rather than spending it on McCain, because of her. EMILY’s List, and AFSCME, and the American Federation of Teachers and others are wasting their members’ money on her now-failed race – money that they could be spending, should be spending, on other real races, races that haven’t already lost. She can’t win, the math says she lost the nomination, but she doesn’t give a damn. She’s going to stay in the race like some spoiled hateful egotistical brat.

      Why is the media even covering her? The only stories that should be written about Hillary Clinton is how much damage she’s causing our party. How she’s hurting fundraising at the DNC – they even admitted it, they’re not raising the money they need to fight John McCain because of this woman. Why don’t you write some stories about how she is hurting our candidates who can’t fundraise because of her? How she has forced EMILY’s List and AFSCME and the AFT to waste their money because of her. How she has caused a civil war in the Netroots. Five months ago we all felt that we had 3 great candidates. Now, far too many of us loathe Hillary Clinton, and she has done her racist best to ensure that her supporters can’t stand Barack Obama either.

      The Clintons don’t give a damn about our party. Their party, their church, is themselves. To hell with everyone else. I actually liked Hillary up until a few months ago. Other bloggers used to tell me that Joe and I were too nice to Hillary. People just assumed that we were endorsing her. Now I actually loathe her. She makes me yell at the TV like she’s George Bush, and no one other than George Bush makes me yell at the TV – until now. I actually can’t stand her or her husband any more. I defended her. I defended her husband. And now I’m actually wondering if the Republicans weren’t right about them. That’s how bad she has damaged her reputation. People who actually liked you, who actually helped you, who actually defended you, LOATHE you now. Call me a Clinton-hater all you like, but people like me were the ones who had your back. And we never will again.

      Let me close with what Mike Huckabee just said on MSNBC:

      “The happiest person in America tonight is John McCain.”

    • Myiq2xu says:

      This should get me insta-blocked.

    • Jadzia says:

      I went on the weirdest date of my life with the guy who wrote that Salon article.

    • leslie says:

      Please do, Klown. He deserves it.

  14. lyn says:

    You can’t buy love … or hate.

    • Lulu says:

      The dude brings ratings. If the others weren’t so boring and stupid, lying and wienies they could get free media too.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I really try to listen to others’ speechify or their pressers. They all seem to be on the same tired old loop of canned responses. I know stump speeches are supposed to be like that, but Trump seems to bring a new fresh one each time I see him. Bernies the same way, and I just can’t stand “listening” to Hillary’s dialect of the day depending on what crowd she’s pandering to 😉

        • Lulu says:

          Whenever I hear Ted Cruz launch off into his pressers or answer questions I drop my attention and think I need to be photocopying an exhibit or have stuff stacked to hand out to a judge or opposing counsel. Then I think “Stop it! This is not a damned bunch of lawyers you are trying to impress! Shut up! Talk normally because I know you can.” He is hopeless and that is his security blankie. Rubio goes into bullshit schmoozing gimme some money mode, and Kat-shit is doing the legislative hokey-pokey “My dear friend”, who I hate, here are some funny numbers like he is still in Congress or at Lehman Bros. It is who they are and they are too damned old to change. Trump talks like he is at work, talking to other people wanting to know what he is doing, what the orders for the day are, rough language like let’s bust some heads today (oh! violence!) and where it all leads. Very, very different. Bullshit versus a general plan. Spinning in place versus moving (forward, backward or sideways). The elite don’t want movement unless they control it in the shadows for their own benefit and this is freaking them out.

    Great post for a morning read Anthony.

  16. Venus says:

    What’s the over/under on the amount of voter fraud in FL and Ohio?

    • DandyTIger says:

      All the fraud they think they can get away with. 🙂 But I doubt the FL vote is close enough to matter. OH is another story of course. There I think Trump will lose even if he wins by 5 points.

  17. foxyladi14 says:

    Yes! But look at the outrageous things he had to say and do to get it.
    Those faces he makes alone is worth big bucks. 😆

  18. foxyladi14 says:

    for those voting via the machines today.
    Watch and make sure that your vote does NOT change before you complete voting.
    If it changes your vote
    Report it and get a paper ballot. 😦

  19. foxyladi14 says:

    Trump wins Northern Marianas Islands. .9 delegates…A caucus today! 😀

  20. helenk3 says:

    you all know trump is not my candidate. But I want a clean election and no outside forces interfering

  21. Venus says:

    Awesome post!! Love Love Love!!

  22. WMCB says:

    Great post, Anthony! Whether Trump wins or not, I think this marks the end of the ascendance of the neocons.

    I am grateful to Trump for cracking the foundations of that power base, if nothing else.

  23. 49erDweet says:

    Great post and “floppy” Photoshop, Anthony. LOL!

  24. WMCB says:


  25. WMCB says:

    Oh noes! Some illegals were among the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of workers who have ever worked on one of the many construction sites of properties developed by Trump!

    • 49erDweet says:


    • DeniseVB says:

      Another crazy twit chick. Allie’s on the #NeverTrump #CruzCrew and her timeline is full of hating Trump. Maybe if she spent as much time promoting Ted than Donald bashing that would do more for her candidate? Was tempted to ask her if she knew the DC labor laws where contractors are required to hire a certain percentage of illegals ? Nah, her hashtags convinced me to run, RUN. 😀

    • lyn says:

      LOL. After reading a reporter’s Twitter timeline about this, Democrats may be trying to vote for Trump but can’t because Florida is a closed primary state.

      • Somebody says:

        I followed your link and posted a comment at gateway pundit that said in essence. Before everybody goes conspiracy theory check to see if these people were given a democrat ballot. If they are registered D’s or didn’t switch in time then they are shit out of luck, Florida is a closed primary.

        If you have twitter Lyn tweet to that reporter to verify what ballot these people were given, was it a republican ballot missing Trump’s name or simply a democrat ballot. BIG DIFFERENCE.

    • taw46 says:

      I just read that Apoka ran out of R ballots. They printed more, but some people had to leave for work, etc. did not get to vote.

  26. WMCB says:

    NRO is all pissy and losing their shit.

  27. WMCB says:

  28. WMCB says:

  29. WMCB says:

    Here’s the thing they don’t get: Trump is a risk-taker who wanted to DO concrete things with his money. Some bets he lost, some he won, and has employed thousands along the way.

    Yes, he could have taken daddy’s money and invested it in a Wall Street real estate fund and some stocks/bonds, and been even richer than he is now. But he didin’t – because he wanted to build/create, not sit on his fat ass collecting dividends.

    But our snickering overlords think that’s a **bad thing.**

    • Somebody says:

      No, no, no……the premise is completely false. Trump’s father didn’t die until 1999. Also, he didn’t inherit his father’s entire estate he has siblings.

      The entire premise of the article is a big fat lie.

      • DeniseVB says:

        My dd won the heart and money from a venture capitalist to start her bike shop. It was like a 5 year loan, she paid him back in 3. It’s how such investors get rich and small businesses get started. Trump is Main Street not Wall Street.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      They also don’t seem to understand that each of those ventures was structured as a stand-alone project. If a project fails then the investors only lose (all or part of) their investment. that’s the only way you can get investors to take part in high risk/high reward ventures. The lenders and other big creditors know what they are getting into.

      BTW – “Bankruptcy” does not mean everybody is totally screwed. The BK court takes over the remaining assets and pays off creditors according to priority. Typically there are some assets to be divided.

      Last but not least, a debtor cannot favor one creditor over another just before filing BK – the court can take that money back and distribute it by law. That’s why employees get listed as creditors too.

      Top priority for BK claims goes to the government.

      • Lulu says:

        I love how our betters, often journalists who majored in basket weaving at an elite university, write about relatively simple things such as limited partnerships, simple contracts, construction and real estate loans, etc which they have absolutely no clue. And the equally “smart” editors and publishers, who are elite elite, don’t understand jack squat either. Our elite are dumb and I demand a new and improved elite.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          There is a reason that you are supposed to diversify your investment portfolio. As the saying goes, don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Geoff Caldwell, who pops in often as a commenter at WHD, works for a newspaper in Joplin, MO. The paper has J-school interns from Mizzou and I don’t think it ever resulted in a job for them 🙂

  30. threewickets says:

    Super tinfoil? Michael Bloomberg has been running a well-financed troll army for well over a decade now to drive his pet political agendas nationally and tableset for a Potus run. Bloomberg’s tactic is always the same: wrap/disguise issues that have financial/power motives in heavy social moralizing, e.g. gay marriage, immigration, climate, gun control, foreclosures, many pharma things, many many wall street things. Unfortunately for Mayor Mike, Donald Trump has trumped him by using national **blowback** against the Bloomberg troll army’s flyover bashing and PC agenda promoting. So he’s stepping back. If Hillary opts to hang her coat on Bloomberg’s identity politics agenda and not on the economics of the American working class, she will lose in November.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      • Lulu says:

        He wants “white” people to migrate first, take all the risks, build it up to his standards, then he will migrate too.Why doesn’t whiny ass here migrate first? Because it is hard. And risky. Especially with the rigged, proggy, leeches in government sucking off the capital and profits for their own use and to kick down competitors of their donors.

  32. lyn says:

    I have no problem with this as long as Tapper and Martin kissed Bernie too.

    • WMCB says:

      The biggest problem with this? I think a lot of the economic populists now have zero party loyalty. So “you can’t win elections without us neocons” will mean little to them.

      What is driving a lot of this is that a big chunk of the electorate who’ve been silenced by *both* parties are now demanding to be part of the national convo. If they can win actual seats (presidential or otherwise), that’s just a bonus. What have THEY got to lose? Not much.

      If the economic populists (and by that I mean those who are NOT redistributionists, but think economic policy ought to be built around the working class as much as it is Wall Street) on the left ever come and join those on the right, they’d gut both the GOPe and the DEMe parties.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I honestly don’t think there would be enough of them or votes to pull it off. Just ewww, Erickson !

    • Anthony says:

      I really hope they do. Their own party is abandoning them left and right. How can they not see that????

    • Somebody says:

      What a bunch of sore losers, for how long have they insisted that the base suck it up and vote for their guy. What is it they always say? So and so is conservative enough. Now suddenly they’re conservative purist? Fuck them.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        They will NEVER get the 100% pure conservative they are looking for. They may find a few pure conservatives, but those guys will never win a national election.

        That’s because this isn’t really about ideology. It’s about identity and class.

        • DeniseVB says:

          What is the definition of a conservative? My awakening in 2008ish was, my gawd, I don’t think I’m a liberal anymore. Now I know I’m not a conservative. I may just be a Trumpkin afterall 😉

  33. DeniseVB says:

  34. Anthony says:

    One big final “Thank You!” to anyone I may have missed upstream. Left for work 10 minutes after publishing, and just got home. Didn’t want to clog a great thread with a million thanks, but I offer *all* of you a million thanks for giving me the chance to shoot my mouth off and for making me feel welcome!

    REVENGE OF THE HANGING CHADS? ~ Trump’s name missing from Florida ballots.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Closed state primary. Crossover Dems for Trump can only vote for Dem candidates if they missed the deadline to re-register to GOP. Saw this on twitter today, FL also left DJT off their sample ballot and his tweeps are showing that w/SAMPLE watermark.

      All the whining and bitching about photo id’s, I think these loosey-goosey open/closed/caucus state rules are suppressing more votes than the idiots who can’t figure out to have a personal photo i.d.

  37. WMCB says:

    • swanspirit says:

      She must be terrified of Donald Trump.

    • leslie says:

      Once again I’m repulsed by a person I actually had believed in and voted for. Now I wouldn’t have voted for HRC e.v.e.r. after BENGHAZI. But this ugly, repulsive race baiting liar is someone who makes me weep and doubt my ability to make good decisions about anyone and anything. I can’t tell you just how sad I am.

      • lyn says:

      • lyn says:

        I waiver about voting for her in the general if the GOP screws Trump. For me anger is better than tears. I’m disappointed that our political system is so corrupt, and I despise all the enablers. I always will side with working-class Americans. If Trump gives them hope for bringing jobs back, then that’s good for me.

        • leslie says:

          Certainly the tears will become anger at some point. But for me, if the GOP screws Trump and the real people of this country, I’ll write in Trump or Sanders as a middle finger to both parties. Hillary will never get my vote again.

  38. WMCB says:

    This reporter on scene in Ohio all week is reporting tons of Dem crossover voting for Trump.

  39. cynic says:

    We are having a pretty good turnout here in my little township!, and I’m joining my friend for dinner, and to watch the results come in. (We’ve done this the last two wks.)
    I haven’t commented much, but I just have to tell everyone here how much I enjoy coming by to read everyone’s comments.

    Public Service Announcement

    Just in case any TCH’s were planning on heading to see the cherry blossoms in DC early, they are shutting Metrorail down at midnight for 24 hours. Fed’s have already announced unscheduled leave policy.

    Also, the park service has once again moved the peak cherry blossom goal posts for 2016. Now it is March 23-25 rather than March 18 -22.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Wassup? Blossoms were peeking out in Feb, because Gorebal Warming !!! Easter is early this year. Perfect visit to DC is always a week or two after peak. Metrorail is always down when I visit.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Global warming hit an artic cold front from Canada. Canada won. Cherry blossoms were rooting for the Maple Leaves.

        I am glad I no longer have to depend on metrorail even if I have do flex hours for my commute. It is always something. This is the entire system. After all the smoke problems over the past tow years – they had a fire today. I guess they were surprised.

        A couple weeks later in the spring is always what I suggest to people. Weather has usually settled. Tourists numbers are down and there are still plenty of blossoms of all sorts.
