Uh, Maybe They Should Start With Finding Real Jobs

John Cole is excited:

I don’t get excited too often when I read the news, but this piece got my blood pumping:

This is what he is excited about:

Hopes for a female president dashed, women take running for office into their own hands

On Wednesday, she woke up inconsolable. On Thursday, angry. But on the Friday after the presidential election, as she prepared posters to join thousands in protesting Donald Trump’s victory, Mia Hernández came to a quiet realization: If she found her country’s direction intolerable, she would have to try to change it.

She would change it not just by signing petitions, or protesting, or calling her legislators. For the first time, she sketched out a plan to run for elected office.

In 2020, Hernández intends to make a bid for a seat on the San Jose City Council or the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. Her focus will be reproductive rights and community empowerment, she said.

“Everybody says organize, don’t mourn, make a change,” said Hernández, 22, a student at the University of California at Santa Cruz. “So I said to myself, ‘How am I going to be an active member in this? You know what, I need to run for office. I need to be a part of that decision-making. I need to make sure Trump’s voice is not the only voice out there.’ ”

Among young, liberal women who expected to see the country elect its first female president Nov. 8, Hernández is not alone; many are responding to Hillary Clinton’s defeat with a new sense of obligation to seek political power. After years of never imagining a career in the public eye or only vaguely entertaining the idea of working in politics, these women are determined to run for elected office.

I’m just guessing, but I would bet money that Ms. Hernández’s major is something like “Latina Studies”. Maybe these young women should start with finding real jobs. Then in a few years after they have some practical experience they can think about running for political office.

But if they really want to change the world, they need to go forth into the red wilderness like missionaries, looking to make converts. Santa Cruz, San Jose and Santa Clara are some of the bluest areas of one of the bluest states in the country. So if Ms. Hernández is successful in running for office, she will most likely be replacing a liberal Democrat. If these young liberal women want to change anything they will need to convert GOP voters and defeat GOP incumbents.

Last but not least, if this last election was any guide, pulling the Democrat party even farther to the left by focusing on identity politics is not the optimal plan for long-term electoral success. But hey, John Cole in red West Virgina is feeling energized.

Maybe he should run for office.

  1. We already have too many people in politics who have never held a real job.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Obama, for one. As a former co-worker said, Obama’s job seems to be looking for his next one.

    • AFVet says:

      You can add the parasites that infiltrate the educational system to that.
      The bedwetters and the teeth gnashers that are making fools of themselves for all to see.
      Hell, when I was that age, I was serving the country.

  2. BTW: If you really care about “community empowerment” then you need to support decentralized small government.

    Too bad you quit NFL this year…Raiders are playing exciting ball!!

  4. The Prog Freak-out Du Jour:

    • Venus says:

      • Lulu says:

        Vox has to try to obfuscate the issue really hard. Illegal voting mainly dead people, duplicate votes in multiple locations and illegal aliens are a huge problem. This has rolled out on a strange timeline. From what I can tell it has happened as follows:
        1. Hillary and Trump agreed to a what could be called gentleman’s agreement. When the AP called the election the loser would concede. That happened awkwardly with Hill calling Trump and then sending out Podesta to send her ninnies home and off screen television because most of the country were laughing at them.
        2. Shock, horror by Dems and globalists with a YUGE electoral victory by Trump.
        3. Attempts to de-legitimize the electoral college start up as sour grapes led by Babs Boxer because the CA landslide for Hillary didn’t do beans to get her elected. If the vote were reversed Hill and Babs would have been pleased as punch but alas they lost by the rules which have been used by all for a long time. Tough tits.
        4. A theory with zero foundation in evidence or facts is floated by one Professor J. Alex Halderman of the University of Michigan. A PhD since 2009 he was floating “theories” in 2012 too and has his own website. He may be a young academic searching for research money or a hack looking to provide “expert” testimony (for a fee of course) and attention. He seems to be backtracking a bit since it was pointed out to him he has ZERO evidence of jack squat and he will have to defend his theories with real lawyers grilling him. He might also be on the Trump administration shit list which would be double bad for research money.
        5. Jill Stein, professional ding a ling is offered large sums of money to file recount petitions in three states where a lot of white people voted and lied to exit pollsters. She announces her service to the country to destabilize a hotly contested election and representative democracy and gets even more money. She is thrilled that she is getting more donations now than when she ran her nutty vanity campaign.
        6. Hillary, who made an agreement with Trump to concede is fudging on her word. No one is really surprised because she lies a lot. Using the excuse of Jill, they just want the truth!, she may also have screwed herself out of a non-prosecution tentative agreement with Trump on her emails and violating the state secrets statutes. Oooops!
        7. Auditing, recounting, doubting white people votes in three states Hillary lost, screwing with the electoral college, and Jill has zero hope of ever getting over 1%, has given Trump, who now has the bully pulpit of the Presidency, gets to drag out his signature issue which won him the White House. The hydra headed IMMIGRATION. Illegal aliens voting to install more pols to give them more free shit that citizen taxpayers fund and not enforce immigration laws nor criminal statutes either. The subject is being changed to the horror of the media who had their marching orders to talk about the EC and white people voting not illegals voting like Broncobama told them to do.
        8. President-Elect Trump wants to thank Jill and Hill for giving him the mega-issue immigration illegals voting to start off his administration with a bang. Not only to do illegal aliens not follow our immigration laws nor criminal laws, they don’t follow our election laws and Democrats are fine with it because it benefits them and dilutes the vote of every citizen. Cause and effect Jill and Hill you idiots. Do not start something you cannot finish to your liking. Now Trump can go after states who let illegals vote and it is a priority.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Great comment Lulu, it should be a post ! Also, add to the sour grapes, people who should know better, like this idiot……..

          • taw46 says:

            Trying as hard as they can to delegitimize his Presidency and to shame/frighten the members of the EC to vote against him. “Journalists” working to undermine our Constitution. Commies, all of them. Ends justify the means.

  5. 49erDweet says:

    I say this in all kindness. UC Santa Cruz is an alternate universe. Nothing about it is real. Academic smoke and mirrors. It’s official “mascot” is a banana slug. Creepy. And fitting. The campus itself seems more like an old movie set for a science-fiction novel than a university, but whatever. By 2020 this young lady will be on some other kick.

  6. swanspirit says:

    John doesn’t know how to actually DO anything, other than type entries into his blog and p!lay video games. He “teaches” communications , but doesn’t know how to communicate with people in any manner other than being condescending. He can’t fix cars, plumbing, electricity, or perform any practical tasks around the house, and he begrudges paying anyone who actually can perform those tasks.. He deems anyone who disagrees with him politically a moron.
    I guess he would be enthusiastic about someone else stepping up to do the heavy lifting.

    • mothy67 says:

      Judging by his face pic he is also grossly unhealthy. Strikes me as ” I am a miserable fuck” overweight, not metabolism.

    • Lulu says:

      How can y’all read his tedious and insular drivel? I’ve tried a couple of times but it is like reading a precocious grade school-er opining about stuff he eavesdropped from the teacher’s lounge for his grandma’s amusement.

      • elliesmom says:

        I had the “fun” job of grading “persuasive essays” written by 13 year olds on the state tests. The kids were given a “controversial topic” to write about. Content wasn’t part of the grade. Reading a lot of stuff written by “journalists” is a lot like reading those essays. The required number of words in grammatically correct sentences spelled correctly, but the content largely BS.

        • AFVet says:

          In Columbus, Ohio public schools, the graduation rate has been slipping in recent years.
          Their solution is to lower the standards of the test instead of going back through the system to find out why.
          It’s enough to make your head explode.

      • swanspirit says:

        I have personal reasons. 😎

    • Propertius says:

      It’s not merely stupid. There’s some serious derangement at work here.

      • Lulu says:

        Professional intellectuals like Krugman are so invested in the globalism scam and accompanying pseudo-religion they cannot process that it is falling apart. Twenty or thirty years invested and for nutin’. it deflates like a kid’s balloon. Like a cult whose leader is jailed or croaks, then the graft, weirdness and illegality comes out, the helpless needy cultists deny everything and wander around in the traffic until they are led inside and told to STFU. Some of them really BELIEVED! and some of them were wise to the scam and are scrambling for a new one. Krugman is looking at being an old, ignored fool or punchline instead of being a respected, elder statesman of hogwash. They sound a lot like criminals when caught coming up with excuses with it wasn’t me, I had to do it, then but everyone was doing it. Krugman may be one of the saddest because not only was he a hired propagandist but it looks like dummy true-believer too.

        • Anthony says:

          “Professional intellectuals like Krugman are so invested in the globalism scam and accompanying pseudo-religion they cannot process that it is falling apart.”

          Thats it in a nutshell. This isn’t about Trump v Clinton – its about globalism/socialism v a free society

          • Lulu says:

            They espouse “socialism” but it is really feudalism. The scraps are given to the peasants which his why we are in the economic collapse that we are for the lower, lower middle to even upper middle class. The feudalists decide who gets what and how.

        • lizzy says:

          I love Krugman as an elder statesman of hogwash. Perfect description.

  9. taw46 says:

  10. Propertius says:

    But if they really want to change the world, they need to go forth into the red wilderness like missionaries, looking to make converts.

    But that would require that they have a persuasive message and an actual program. They’d also have to stop tagging everyone who disagrees with them with the “r” word.

    • I didn’t say it would be easy.

      • Lulu says:

        They can’t think that fast to actually engage anyone. I have enjoyed Tucker Carlson show because he makes this so abundantly clear. They are slow witted, cannot get beyond memorized talkie points, and it always boils down to they are good and everyone else out of their perceived social stratus is bad. It is roughly a four year old thinking, emoting, and throwing a fit.

        • mothy67 says:

          Tucker is quite the pleasant surprise. I had seen him on the morning show and thought little of him.

          • Lulu says:

            I laugh when Carlson gets his scrunch-face mean eye look which means he is about to lay into them. He starts by looking blank and kind of dopey getting them to say stupid shit, then mean eyes, then lays in, then smirks at them telling them the segment is over. He has very good timing.

          • taw46 says:

            Tucker is excellent at that, always has been. He was wasted on the week-end morning show, only had short segments to be himself. So glad he has his own show.

          • AFVet says:

            I like it when he openly laughs at them.

        • lateblum says:

          That reminds me of a person I know who, when protesting the war would say, “In your heart you know it’s wrong”. Did not use facts, data, numbers, logic. Just feelings. I adore this person, but is going through the same process now. In her heart she knows she is right.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Tucker’s also doing quite well in the ratings, much better than Greta and Brit Hume did in that timeslot.

        • Constance says:

          Still it is important to remember that stupid is apparently God’s favorite model of people because she/he makes a lot of stupid people. I give the Democrats credit for the fact that they organize and control stupid people and provide them with yapping points. Republicans just keep hoping your can wake stupid people up or teach them reality. That doesn’t work and Republicans need to start a program to control and guide stupid people which doesn’t require them to be anything but stupid which is all they will ever be, but they can vote.
          We also need to immediately get laws requiring voter ID and put up simple obstacles to voting such as registering 2 weeks early (requires forethought) finding a poling place and showing up on time (requires ability to plan). I do support early voting though as it makes it harder for the Left to intimidate voters away.

        • Somebody says:

          I tuned out 95% of cable “news” during the election, it was just too much. I’ve always liked Tucker Carlson, don’t always agree 100% with him, but he backs up his ideas with honest debate. When I read Tucker was getting his own show I decided to tune in and boy am I glad I did! So far I have thoroughly enjoyed his show.

          I have to wonder what his rating are like. At Thanksgiving I found out several family members that had also tuned out have tuned in to Tucker Carlson and they too are enjoying his new show. I hope that bodes well for Tucker!

      Is Frum talking about “his” people or the rest of the country? And Frum still can’t process that the old left-right, R-D, smarties-dummies, good-bad, purity-unpure, globalist-troglodyte paradigm shift. It is a political realignment stupid and you are being left behind Frum.

      • lateblum says:

        This morning, Kellyanne Conway was the talk on both Morning Joe and FBN because she had spoken about the “people who feel betrayed” by Trumps consideration of Mittens for SOS. Pretty sure that’s what Frum was talking about.

        • Lulu says:

          Well Mitt’s trash talking butthurt made him look like a jealous mean girl. Then his support of the weirdo from Utah who has never been anything but an acolyte apparatchik of war mongers was a step too far. But if Mitt will kiss Trump’s big butt on live TV and say “I’m stupid” I might forgive him. I think Trump is stringing him along to NOT appoint him for comeuppance and say I only hire the best which is not Mittens. Trump is getting his licks in early so he doesn’t have to deal with them for 4 to 8 years. Be nice to Trump he is nice back, be bad to Trump and he kill-shots your ass.

    And in even a broken clock is right twice a day department, fro Maureen Dowd:

    Election Therapy From My Basket of Deplorables

    by Maureen Dowd

    Her game of thrones over, Cersei — as Kevin Dowd nicknamed Hillary Clinton — stood guard over the Dowd family Thanksgiving.Credit Kevin Dowd

    WASHINGTON — First I had to deal with the president-elect scolding.

    During his interview with The New York Times on Tuesday, Donald Trump chided me twice for being too tough on him.

    Sitting next to our publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., Trump invited everyone around the table to call him if they saw anything “where you feel that I’m wrong.”

    “You can call me, Arthur can call me, I would love to hear,” he said. “The only one who can’t call me is Maureen. She treats me too rough.”

    Then I had to go home for Thanksgiving and deal with my family scolding me about the media misreading the country. I went cold turkey to eat hot turkey: no therapy dog, no weaving therapy, no yoga, no acupuncture, no meditation, no cry-in.

    The minute I saw my sister’s Trump champagne and a Cersei figurine as the centerpiece — my brother, Kevin, nicknamed Hillary “Cersei” during this year’s brutal game of thrones — I knew I wasn’t in a safe space.

    My little basket of deplorables, as I call my conservative family, gloated with Trump toasts galore, and Kevin presented me with his annual holiday column with an extra flourish.

    My colleague Paul Krugman tweeted Friday that “affluent, educated suburbanites” who voted for Trump are “fools.” What else is there to say, he asked.

    Well, here is what Kevin, an affluent, educated suburbanite, has to say in his column, titled an “Election Therapy Guide for Liberals”:

    Donald Trump pulled off one of the greatest political feats in modern history by defeating Hillary Clinton and the vaunted Clinton machine.

    The election was a complete repudiation of Barack Obama: his fantasy world of political correctness, the politicization of the Justice Department and the I.R.S., an out-of-control E.P.A., his neutering of the military, his nonsupport of the police and his fixation on things like transgender bathrooms. Since he became president, his party has lost 63 House seats, 10 Senate seats and 14 governorships.

    The country had signaled strongly in the last two midterms that they were not happy. The Dems’ answer was to give them more of the same from a person they did not like or trust.

    Preaching — and pandering — with a message of inclusion, the Democrats have instead become a party where incivility and bad manners are taken for granted, rudeness is routine, religion is mocked and there is absolutely no respect for a differing opinion. This did not go down well in the Midwest, where Trump flipped three blue states and 44 electoral votes.

    The rudeness reached its peak when Vice President-elect Mike Pence was booed by attendees of “Hamilton” and then pompously lectured by the cast. This may play well with the New York theater crowd but is considered boorish and unacceptable by those of us taught to respect the office of the president and vice president, if not the occupants.

    Here is a short primer for the young protesters. If your preferred candidate loses, there is no need for mass hysteria, canceled midterms, safe spaces, crying rooms or group primal screams. You might understand this better if you had not received participation trophies, undeserved grades to protect your feelings or even if you had a proper understanding of civics. The Democrats are now crying that Hillary had more popular votes. That can be her participation trophy.

    If any of my sons had told me they were too distraught over a national election to take an exam, I would have brought them home the next day, fearful of the instruction they were receiving. Not one of the top 50 colleges mandate one semester of Western Civilization. Maybe they should rethink that.

    Mr. Trump received over 62 million votes, not all of them cast by homophobes, Islamaphobes, racists, sexists, misogynists or any other “ists.” I would caution Trump deniers that all of the crying and whining is not good preparation for the coming storm. The liberal media, both print and electronic, has lost all credibility. I am reasonably sure that none of the mainstream print media had stories prepared for a Trump victory. I watched the networks and cable stations in their midnight meltdown — embodied by Rachel Maddow explaining to viewers that they were not having a “terrible, terrible dream” and that they had not died and “gone to hell.”

    The media’s criticism of Trump’s high-level picks as “not diverse enough” or “too white and male” — a day before he named two women and offered a cabinet position to an African-American — magnified this fact.

    Here is a final word to my Democratic friends. The election is over. There will not be a do-over. So let me bid farewell to Al Sharpton, Ben Rhodes and the Clintons. Note to Cher, Barbra, Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham: Your plane is waiting. And to Jon Stewart, who talked about moving to another planet: Your spaceship is waiting. To Bruce Springsteen, Jay Z, Beyoncé and Katy Perry, thanks for the free concerts. And finally, to all the foreign countries that contributed to the Clinton Foundation, there will not be a payoff or a rebate.

    As Eddie Murphy so eloquently stated in the movie “48 Hrs.”: “There’s a new sheriff in town.” And he is going to be here for 1,461 days. Merry Christmas

    From my favorite poster at Big Pink (www.hillaryis44.org):

    Mormaer

    Stein exposed more than a little with her drooling fan girl love for the sexy hombre Castro of murder, mayhem and nuclear war fame. I suspect it is the multiple hours screaming speeches and murder squads that get her old fascist fantasies going.

    Her “recount” lawfare nuisance is to de-legitimize Trump’s election in any way possible to keep the old lefties “hope” and agitating alive. The “popular” vote win by Hillary is based entirely on Mexico, er, excuse me, California. More illegals aliens of Mexican citizenry voted in that state than probably vote in Mexico City. Without Mexifornia the Democrats are truly a rump party. The money she is collecting is from progressive marks but most is probably from Soros if a forensic audit was done by say the FBI and IRS “charity” unit. Maybe the Saudi’s too. But Jill is overcome with “happiness” for her cut.

    California is looking at Armageddon. I ran across an interesting statistic for our most populous state. 37% of every nickel spent in the state and local California budgets for EVERYTHING is federal tax money California is provided by the taxpayers of the entire US. There may be other states with similar ratio’s but none with the YUGE population that aren’t even US citizens and no one cost shifts like the California Democrats to enrich themselves and gain even more power. There is a reason Nasty Nancy has been queen Dem legislator forever and other Dem congress-critters are noticing they get so little for their regions. Without that indirect and involuntary subsidy California will be a shit-hole and fast. If they did become their own country (succession! and Mexico doesn’t want them with their debt ratio and without the rest of the US paying for it) the lovely if earthquake prone place would be bankrupt at its birth as a nation and unable to meet any of their promises of paradise with a social contract. The de-population of California (and 2020 census) with immigration enforcement and a budget mega-squeeze will reduce its outsize political footprint. The rest of the country seems to have ganged up on poor, crooked, failing state Mexican California.

    And Jill Stein seems to only want to recount “white” votes. And they wonder why they lost.

        I read .75 of every dollar paid in federal taxes is returned to the state. I believe it is one of the highest..

        • Lulu says:

          Texas too but military bases are included which kind of throws it off. So CA may have that stat too since it is a big military base state because coastline and good weather. But the 37% federal dollars for state and local spending (which is not national defense) is the real story as they are cost shifting instead of in-state taxing for their goodies and largess handed out. It is a rich state but they are getting the other 49 to help pay for their own social policies cooked up by Dems. That must stop.

    • lyn says:

      The recount in Wisconsin, and the coming ones in Michigan and Pennsylvania will not change the outcomes in any of the states. No recount ever changes thousands of votes. I do not think that is the purpose.

      The recounts, if done by hand, which can be demanded, may take longer than the last day for completing the official counts in a state and directing Electoral College voters. If all 3 states miss the deadline, Trump is at 260, Hillary at 232. No one hits 270.

      Then this goes to Congress, where the House voting 1 vote per state elects Trump, and Senate selects Pence. This would be first time Pthis happened since 1824, but in that case, John Quincy Adams won in the House, though he had fewer electoral college votes than Andrew Jackson.

      If this goes to the US House and Senate, and the result is the same as result from the Electoral College without the recounts, why do it? The answer is to make Trump seem even more illegitimate, that he did not win the popular vote (he lost by over 2.1 million), he did not win the Electoral College (did not reach 270), and was elected by being inserted into the presidency by members of his own party in Congress.

      • Somebody says:

        What if the purpose is to elect Hillary in the US House? Think about it, each state get one vote…..what if MI, PA, or WI flip? Are the majority of the legislators from those states dems? The caucus from each state votes and then cast the ballot for their state.

        I don’t think that would happen, I find it hard to believe WI would flip, but who knows I don’t trust Paul Ryan.

        Hopefully a judge in PA will put an end to this stunt. Jill Stein doesn’t have standing and I seriously doubt she can present solid evidence of fraud, unless team Clinton is providing her with THEIR voter fraud in Philly, THAT would be rich.

      I am. I’ve seen what the Dems do right here in IL. I know they are capable of fraud and stealth on so grand a scale that it can turn the world upside-down. That is what frightens me. And just when I thought our world might be righted once again.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Isn’t that how Obama won his two races by digging up dirt on his opponents that “leaked” to the msm ?

        • lateblum says:

          Yes. and then later on, they unsealed court-sealed documents to destroy the possibility of anyone ever becoming a real threat/challenge to TehOne.
          Yesterday my DIL said that obama went into politics to “serve the people” I laughed out loud before I could stop myself. She left the room – in her own house. I felt “bad”.

      Can these idiots become anymore self-obsessed? Why would her friends and family think of Melania Trump over Melanie Reid unless she is a nothing-burger. And why would she care unless she has to be a “name” victim to be noticed. And it is two different names with different spellings and pronunciations if someone would explain it to Miss Butthurt.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        My guess is snowflake does not realize it is a different cultural variation with a very distinctive pronunciation. She probably thinks Melania is mispronouncing her own name. Another example would be Deanna versus Diana. Deanna Durbin/Princess Diana.

    Maybe we don’t care about Trump’s business, wouldn’t this conflict of interest be a concern back when he announced? It really concerns me more how the Clintons and Obamas became millionaires after a life of public service ? (The Obamas had serious debt issues before his book was published and living off lines of credit)

  22. DeniseVB says:

    I think Obama resembles MalcolmX more than Trudeau resembles Castro. But hey, a nice break from pearl clutching lefty “journalists” today……

  23. Anthony says:

    REASONS TO RECOUNT (OR NOT) – I had a very strong opinion this morning before I came here to see what was up with everyone. At first, I thought it was a little tin-foily, but now I’m not so sure of that. I was going to write a post about it, but once I started working on it and researching my personal conclusions, it morphed into so much writing that it was far too long to be published as a single post, so instead, I’m condensing it into a comment (and yes, this is the condensed version…)

    In reading todays comments, a couple of them touched upon what was nagging at my brain. I don’t believe this recount is about Clinton V Trump, Democrats V Republicans, Progressives V Populists. What I believe is that its a struggle between socialism and a free society, or The New World Order. In short, a (now global) rebellion – think “Brexit” and the other EU countries who now want out of that union – against worldwide socialism.

    The First comment that I noticed was this one:

    Lulu @ 3:40am said: “Professional intellectuals like Krugman are so invested in the globalism scam and accompanying pseudo-religion they cannot process that it is falling apart.

    It all started in the 20th Century, with Woodrow Wilson, and despite clear evidence of the reality of the movement, Wikipedia (Ha!) still lists it as a “conspiracy theory” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_World_Order_(conspiracy_theory)

    When George H. W. Bush won the presidency, he revived the socialist movement and delivered a speech to bolster it. If you watch this video of his quotes on the subject, you will see that much of it has come to pass. (still think its a conspiracy theory?):

    After GHWB, Bill Clinton was elected because of his populist style of campaigning. Note that after GHWB’s first term, he was defeated because of his NWO effort. People wanted a “man of the people” and Bill Clinton knew how to sound like one. Admittedly, I was too entrenched in my career and had a comfortable enough resources in the 1990s to pay much attention to politics, but a couple of things from Bill Clintons tenure really offended me – even back then when money was rolling in and opportunities were endless. Those “couple of things” were NAFTA and the repeal of Glass-Steagall, which I’ve never been able to forgive Clinton for enacting.

    Following Clinton’s complicity of implementing the NWO, we got George W. Bush, who chipped away at our border security and pulled all kinds of stunts with his superhighway linking Mexico with Canada, via the USA. Like his father, he plunged us into another un-necessary war (Iraq) while taking his eye off the justified invasion of Afghanistan (where we had Bin Laden cornered in Tora Bora, and then ridiculously retreated for some obscure reason that remains obscured).

    The other comment that caught my eye was this one:

    Cisco Kid @ 7:24pm said: ”The forces of the left have all, if not most, have joined together to pull a reverse Coup d’ `etat. In this case the Hillary Government will seize the people, not the other way around.”

    We saw the beginning of this in 2008, when the R&B Committee stripped HRC’s votes and delegates and gave them to Barack Obama. She capitulated, I took my hands off the wheel and never voted Dem again since then.

    In the 2016 GE, BOTH sides of the aisle tried pulling that shit – the GOP wanted Jeb!™ and the Obamacrats wanted HRC. First, the Dems bargained with an all too willing Bernie Sanders to capitulate to Clinton, who astonishingly did a 180 on her 2008 platform (much like Trump’s, if you remember) so she could continue the NWO plan by becoming Barack Obama with a gender re-assignment and some serious skin bleaching. The GOP was not so lucky – someone with a lot of money and public appeal pulled off a hostile takeover of the party, and in the process, destroyed both parties.

    This stunt that Stein is being paid to enact by George Soros is not a recount to preserve “democratic principles”. Rather, I believe it is the beginning of a long and vicious battle to remain a free republic. Donald J. Trump and his supporters have put a stick in the spokes of the wheels of the NWO, and those who stood to profit from it are now screwed, and they don’t like it one bit.

    So, am I crazy or not? (I’m cool either way 🙂 )

    • Anthony says:

      Can someone please fix my block quote error after Cisco Kid’s comment? Thanks – I have no way of doing that with my present admin permissions

    • Lulu says:

      No you are not crazy. The media, public intellectuals, the “parties” keep acting like this is R vs D and it isn’t. The globalists want it to continue to be multi-culti, good smart vs hicks, uneducated, whitie’s and it isn’t that either. During a not yet complete political world-wide realignment it is nation states with sovereign citizens with individual rights vs globalist, corporate fascists who will impose their fake superior moral smartieness on everyone who is not one of them and a believer. They think it is a new “thing” but it is not. It is only warmed over feudalism. Also being historical illiterates means they don’t GET that it leads to revolution of a rather violent nature and they are the first to get whacked.

      • Anthony says:

        Thank you, Lulu, for my psych eval lol. I know it was a lot to read through, but as I said, it would’ve been an epic tome on that topic.

        Interesting you mentioned feudalism, because I was thinking along those lines after writing an unrelated piece for an Italian/American newspaper on how feudalism saved the (then) world economy after the fall of Rome.

        Wealthy nobles/military were stationed in Roman territories to keep the empire secure before the fall, which was already spread too thin. To avoid annihilation afterwards, the Romans provided protection, housing and food for the serfs in exchange for their toil (and freedom). Reminded me of the current globalist effort with those 5 jackasses in Brussels running (ruining is more like it) the EU

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        No. Not crazy. All they have not been subtle. No states Trump lost that were close was the giveaway for me. This is nothing trying to lay groundwork to change the process because they thought they had things firmly controlled and found out they were wrong. How does that saying go – you are not paranoid if they really are out to get you. They will double down and find more ways to attack.

        The balloon of mayor for Hillary is another – they need people in positions in order for the scam to continue to operate. I think that ties to the Where in World is Waldo approach with all the fakes photos. Trying to make sure people see she active an healthy and ready to go.

        Castro’s death has also shed light on what they really think. And that horrid global rule faux Pope – instead of sticking with praying for his soul – lectured us on how wonderful Fidel was and how we peons do not appear to appreciate such people.

    • taw46 says:

      I remember when the elder Bush spoke of the NWO. The people who sounded alarms about that were dismissed as “conspiracy theorists”. And we didn’t have the Internet presence like we do now, so many people didn’t even know about it.

      So yes, it has been coming for a long time. I have watched in horror the last 8 yrs as it all accelerated, and no one (in Congress) did anything to stop it. I believed our country had indeed slipped away until Trump announced his candidacy. Now many people are willing to fight to keep our country. And no, the left will never, ever, ever stop, they have been at it for the last 100 years. They get exposed, lay low and change their tactics, then rise once again. I do worry about this “recount”. Something evil afoot, and its name is Soros.

      • lateblum says:

        Something evil afoot, and its name is Soros.
        I agree with you.

      • lateblum says:

        BTW: I also agree with the rest of your comment…

      • Anthony says:

        Agree about Soros, especially since it broke on MSM last night. If you follow the money, you end up on his doorstep.

        RE: NWO – it has indeed been coming for a long time, but Trump was the only one who stepped up to give voice to the concerns of what I believe to be the majority of people in this country. Nigel Farage did the same for the UK.

        We “peasants” are truly pissed…

    About Jill Stein and her desired recount in MI . . .

    • lateblum says:

      And as a follow-up tweet…..

    • lateblum says:

      Here comes Wisconsin…

      • lateblum says:

        From PoliticusUSA:
        http://www.politicususa.com/2016/11/28/battle-begins-wisconsin-denies-jill-stein-request-statewide-hand-recount.html

        The Wisconsin Elections Commission has denied a request by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein for a hand recount of all ballots.

        The AP reported, “The Wisconsin Elections Commission has voted unanimously to reject a request from Green Party candidate Jill Stein to conduct a hand recount of the presidential vote. Instead, the commission Monday voted to allow local election clerks to determine the method they would use for a recount.”

        Stein can appeal, and ask a judge to order the recount by hand, but it appears that the plan is to simply run the same ballots through the voting machines again. Running the ballots through the machines again will accomplish nothing, as Stein is claiming that the election system is not secure and could have been compromised.

        • Lulu says:

          Stein bases the “not secure” on the statement of an academic who has already backed away from that allegation when he got questioned about it. This academic did not appear to be familiar with the individual states methods nor how they could be hacked specifically which of course is required in a court or even an admin hearing. It could be hacked just like it could snow in the Amazon. It is all blabbering nonsense. And now Stein has a wad of dough for her silliness. BUT they gave Trump a reason to rail about illegal aliens voting and a reason to do something about it early in his admin.

      State Law Makes Jill Stein’s Pennsylvania Recount Next to Impossible (VIDEO)
      Jim Hoft Nov 28th, 2016 11:02 am —25 Comments

      Despite her successful fundraising effort, state law makes Jill Stein’s Pennsylvania recount next to impossible.

      According to state law three voters in each precinct or election district in Pennsylvania must submit a notarized affidavit to the clerk in their individual election districts in order to initiate a recount.

      from Gateway Pundit:

      • Lulu says:

        So three out of three will be no-go for recounts but Jill got money and she got idiot Hillary to say sure I will go along with it. And one state won’t do it. It does appear that a possible outcome was to stop these three states electors from participating thus denying these state’s voters their vote and right to participate in the presidential election was part of the scheme. Those two are all about the democracy and voter participation unless you are in the wrong kind of state.

      • Jadzia says:

        I think that’s the idea of terror attacks now. Attack in places that don’t seem to be “targets.” That’s what’s been happening here–the big attacks in Paris yes, but more frightening for many are the smaller attacks that are happening in cities that many folks haven’t heard of–Dijon, Nice, Tours, Nantes, Saint Etienne de Rouvray. It’s easier for them to attack these smaller places and it’s scarier I think–increases the feeling that “nowhere is safe.”

    A push towards delays in the next president taking office, and efforts to make the next president illegitimate, reminds me of Bush in 2011. Trying to think, with all that delay and illegitimacy, putting the US on shaky ground, might have led to something. Something in September. Trying to remember. Oh well, nothing important I’m sure. Go ahead, make the US unstable for a few months. What’s the worst that can happen.
