The Beltway Brigade and Donald Trump

Perhaps it is incredibly naïve to think that the people who profess to believe in conservatism, smaller government, free market capitalism and liberty (pursuit of happiness) would apply some of these basic principles to the nomination process for the Republican party. Instead, we have the Beltway brigade, the self-appointed (on the right) elites who believe that, in spite of the fact that they live in a bubble, they know what is best for the unwashed rabble out there. What these people might really know is what is best for the political class and their fellow elites in D.C., New York and LA. Just like the politicians whose first and foremost preoccupation is to be re-elected, the Beltway brigade’s is to preserve the status quo, tell the rest of us what and how to think, get rich in the process and importantly, preserve their social availability for cocktail parties no matter which “side of the aisle” wins. I am sorry, this is not how it works; this is not conservatism at its most basic which, in my view, is about freedom. What it is, is the model of the left where people succumb to groupthink and will gladly do as their told in exchange for putting control of their lives in the hands of some chosen few. We have heard now from every single one of these vessels of the establishment, each trying to be the David to bring down the goliath that is Donald Trump; the reward and accolades would be historic, spectacular! If any of these people (and there is really no need to name names) have taken on the sell-out wimps that control the Republican party leadership with the same venom that they’ve been attacking Mr. Trump, I have missed it. None of them, to my knowledge, has vociferously defended conservative principles when they are attacked and undermined by the current Congressional leadership; none.

My advice then to the Beltway brigade, you’ve all said your piece and opinion with respect to the ongoing primary race, it’s out there, we’ve heard you. Now, act in accordance with the principles you profess to believe in and let the chips fall where they may. It may also help to accept that if none of the other candidates can beat Mr. Trump in this race, it is very likely that he/she will not be able to beat the Democrat party nominee. Mr. Trump fights (and actually fights back) as well or better than the cabal that is that party and its minions in the media; so conversely, if someone else in the race can take him on, on his terms and win, there is every likelihood that this person will have the fortitude to prevail in the general election.

The Audacity of that Hopeless Reprobate Clinton (HRC)

What seems to be missing from the discussion of what Mrs. Clinton has been up to is the utter audacity, chutzpah, of the woman.  Here we have someone, the Prince Charles of American politics as I have previously referred to her, whom we all know has lusted for the power of the presidency since, well, at least 2007.  This person had to have known for sometime now and particularly during her time at the State Department, that she will run again for the office.  And yet, with the run likely being a near certainty (with the possible exception being for her health), she knowingly, willfully and with reckless disregard for security, setup her very own email server in Chappaqua.  This, necessitated by the single “fact” that she didn’t want to carry more than one mobile device.  Who, out there, actually believes this?


More well-qualified people will inform us about the legal ramifications of what she has done so, let’s focus for a minute on what it suggests.  What it shows is a person who simply does not believe that the law and rules should be an impediment to her ambitions or personal interests.  The “smartest” woman in the world had to know that her use of a personal server would become public or at minimum, that the risk of this exposure could be problematic and yet, she forged ahead in the unprecedented manner (nevermind the spin from her eunuchs about Colin Powell, etc.).  So, what made her do it?  Did she really think it was not a problem (knowing differently and again, presumably, knowing the security risks), did she think it would have been kept hidden or did she do it because she thought there was no downside at all?  We have to eliminate the first of these because, surely, someone would have advised her that the security risk alone was not worth it (it is simply unbelievable that Mrs. Clinton has actually attacked the Chicoms for hacking into the US Government protected OPM database and yet, some how, we are to believe that her little server in Chappaqua escaped attention).  This leaves us with either the thinking that the server would have been kept secret (willing accomplices in the media) or that the risk of exposure and potential damage from it were far outweighed by whatever there was to gain; that is, carrying only one mobile device, does anyone believe this?

If you don’t, you have to think what this says about Mrs. Clinton and what it’d mean if she has unfettered and fully confidential access to the levers of power in Washington, D.C.  The audacity of this person and her history (and we only need go to the infamous Youtube/Benghazi lies for affirmation) should disqualify her from even running for the presidency in the minds of most fair and serious minded persons.  Mrs. Clinton needs to understand that at some point, her baggage will and should make a difference.

By the way, when she relaunches her campaign (inevitably), this should be her calling card:

New Trump and Hillary Logos…

Trump’s:

triumph

To be clear, it says: “I TRUMP TRIUMPH” or simply “TRIUMPH” over “H.”  “H” being, well, see below…Any other interpretation of this is NOT intended.  This is not an endorsement of the man (not yet, anyway) but rather of his fighting spirit which has been severely lacking in the Republican party.

Hillary’s:

hill2

Before charges of sexism, war on women, etc. are made, let’s be clear: the letters H (Hillary) and O (Obama) obviously and coincidentally spell the word “HO.”  The intent of the logo is NOT to suggest that Mrs. Clinton is one in the normal sense of the word…of course, in the political sense, the word is applicable; as it is to 99% of all politicians.

A dozen reasons why Letterman’s a Loser…

This, as a response to his “coming out of retirement” to do a top ten list on Trump.   Note: Letterman’s list should be read before the following in order to grasp the reason for the nature of this response.

12 Brian Williams said he was at a taping of his NBC show once and it was,  “really, really, funny, really…”

11 Even Paul Shaffer didn’t have to pay the interns

10 He is so slow it only took him about 30 years to finally understand he is not funny; then he retired

9 The cost of paying off interns on sex harassment charges became too high

8 He couldn’t stand appearing on TV with a beard on his face that was transplanted from Trump’s ass

7 He finally realized that he was nothing but a tool for liberal politicians and a shill for Hollywood

6 The gap in his front teeth is several orders of magnitude less than the gap in the humor part of his brain

5 He was only competitive against Leno when Leno went on vacation

4 In the key 18 – 35 demographic, infomercials were pulling better ratings

3 He was 127.882% of the “BS” at CBS

2 The gap in his teeth is not the only frontal gap he has and

1 That “thing” (as he called it) on Trump’s head attracts hotter women than his “humor”

what has happened? – 8/26

On the assumption
That this is it
How could I not
Re-post this:

so, am i right?
there is no magical way
to spend the day
together, alone
doing whatever you’d like –
have the day off
and a late breakfast
go to a quiet place
talk, but there’s stuff to do
get into bed, get out for dinner
or when i am kicked out
for being too damned attached
enjoy a good bottle of wine, food
and retire, up for it again
but are you?
ideas for a boring birthday
but, i think an enjoyable one
what else can a person want?
peace in the world?
maybe on some magical day.
for now, the very best…

while i go off and ponder
what the recent pleasant activity
here
really, really means
but i will be sure
not to read too much
into it all…i know better.

 

Unsolicited Advice to Republicans: Grow a Pair (or Borrow Nancy Pelosi’s)

This was originally posted on 1/30/2014 but a re-post was thought necessary on the eve of “Executive Amnesty.” Let’s see, on the one hand we have elected Democrats and indirectly, Gruber’s “stupid people” who support them, egging on the President to “go big” with his theft of power and disregard for his constitutional duties and the constitution itself and on the other hand, we have the rest of the American people who recently voted to stop all of this and yet, the RINOS are wavering. But, let’s see how this plays out.

From 1/30/2014:

Again, on the amnesty issue. The previous post (see here: https://mononymous1.wordpress.com/2014/05/28/the-broken-windows-theory-now-applies-to-government/) commented on how the Democrats wield power. The President is playing a dictator with absolutely no regard for the constitution and the case has clearly been made about their use or abuse of power. In this regard and in particularly with respect to amnesty; the dimwitted Republicans need to take a page out of Nancy Pelosi’s playbook. Their simplest approach to amnesty and indeed, on any other issue, should be WWNPD if the situation were reversed – meaning, what would the Democrats do if they were opposed to amnesty with a Republican Senate and President? Do they think, for instance, that NP as Speaker, would be entertaining any of these considerations right now? The answer: hell no.

They might have, for example, passed a border security bill first and send it over to the Senate where it’d probably die. They would then go into the election saying, “Hey, we started the process but the President and his party refused to take action on the first step. Don’t blame us!” They could then go on to explain why border security is an extremely important first step and try to rally the country in getting something done about it. Perhaps they’d even go on to warn that, unlike the Obamacare monstrosity that has spawned so many unintended consequences, a “comprehensive reform” bill of 2000 or more pages is absolutely not the way to go. They could then point out that the President has seen fit to act unilaterally on enforcement of laws, has been busy using regulations to circumvent them, that these things are not acceptable and that this is yet another basis for refusing to act on a total reform package because, simply put, he cannot be trusted.

But no. In their typical spineless fashion, the Republicans are willing to cave to whatever unseen forces guide them because it certainly isn’t the will of their constituents. It is still quite interesting as to what these unseen forces are. Where are the “conservative” members of the House and why wouldn’t they come out and expose what is going on here? Anybody, somebody, grow a pair or borrow Nancy Pelosi’s!

So, Rep. Gowdy (R-SC), If “Comprehensive” is Latin…

for “lots of bad stuff” in legislation; what is “Omnibus” if not damn near the same? Therefore, can the American people count on you to show some leadership and oppose the current omnibus spending bill that will continue to fund “lots of bad stuff” including Obamacare and whatever “amnesty” is pending? Sir, just demand that we follow the usual but now forgotten process of passing separate appropriations bills and let the Senate fail to act or let the president veto them. It is clear that the public will support the House’s actions if the reasons are made clear.

Well?
