At this point I think the only thing that could keep Orange Man from winning is voter complacency — people who want him to win refraining from voting because they believe he cannot lose.
Lately I’ve been torn on whom I want his opponent to be. Biden’s out — tragically, because Trump would have wiped the floor with him, and the sound bites would have been glorious. (The man basically memes himself.)
Which leaves either Bernie or Bloomberg. Bernie will take the nomination if he manages to receive enough delegates, which is why the DNC is intent on keeping so many warm bodies in the ring (plus Biden) — to siphon away votes. Bloomberg will be awarded the nomination via brokered convention if their strategy proves successful.
I hope somebody buys Biden an ice cream cone afterwards or something.
This is why Bernie Sanders refuses to denounce his staff’s execute-the-opposition & abolish-the-Constitution rhetoric: because Bernie himself admires extreme authoritarian dictatorships.
Tim characterizes Bernie as the Anti-Trump: “Trump is talking about creating wealth, Bernie is talking about taking it.”
Tim Pool claimed the other day that 68% of millennial womxyzn are Democrats. This is incorrect.
PEW Research found in 2018 that 68% of 18-34 year olds identified as Democrats.
This 68% figure has been erroneously characterized by the media as representative of millennials, though anyone with a functioning front lobe who looks at the damn charts will no doubt realize millennials & zoomers have been grouped together.
The millennials’ share of that percentage almost certainly would have been higher, considering GenZ as a whole is more socially conservative than GenY. And it is likely to have climbed higher still in 2020, given the increasing political polarization of every cultural institution and the fact that womxyzn are more susceptible to emotional manipulation and ideological indoctrination.
Which brings me to my conclusion: that young womxyzn should be put on puberty blockers. Not long enough to sterilize them — just long enough to counteract the harmful effects of estrogen to the brain.
I’m admittedly biased on account of the NPC angle, but I’m going to come out and declare this one of the most enjoyable Mr. O videos ever.
Yet I disagree with his assessment; this girl is most definitely an NPC. I come from a very blue “one percent” area, and nearly of the NPCs I know are of average to above average intelligence.
The Dems & MSM have claimed all along that Hunter Biden was never under investigation — he just happened to work for Burisma.
Shokin has maintained that Hunter WAS under investigation, but he was dismissed as having a conflict of interest (which is true) and smeared as having been fired for failing to tackle Burisma’s corruption (which is clearly false).
A news outlet in Ukraine and a Russian one both reported having seen documents substantiating Shokin’s claims, but they were dismissed in the Western media as “Russian propaganda”.
But now Giuliani has actual documents PROVING Biden’s son was actively being investigated for money laundering.
The Dems’ entire impeachment strategy rested on the idea that Trump was attempting to investigate the Bidens despite repeated assurances from those Obama holdovers the Dems paraded before us that there was zero cause to do so.
It also looks like they may have found where that “missing” $1.8 billion went.
(Re the idea that the institutions are the problem):
I don’t think it’s the institutions, I think it’s the people. It’s a combination of corruption and cowardice.
Take Congress. Many of them are corrupt, but for the most part it’s small-scale corruption that most people wouldn’t bat an eye at. But they refrain from calling out much greater levels of corruption because they know there would be retaliation. Even if they haven’t done anything particularly awful, the groundwork will have been set for their lives and the lives of their families to be torn apart, either by malicious investigations or trained media vultures or angry constituents — but probably all of the above.
The ones who aren’t corrupt know to keep their heads down and not rock the boat, because the moment they blow the whistle, the horde will descend upon them, and they’ll be subjected to much of the same (if not identical) treatment as the corruption-lite ones above.
And then there is the big-corrupt. For the reasons outlined above, they’re the safest. And the more power they manage to acquire — either by trading favors or selling contracts or diverting funds — the safer they become. They gain leverage over the people beneath them and use and discard them whenever necessary.
Whatever stories do mange to leak out — generally by the people over which they have oversight — are easily dismissed as wild smears or “conspiracy theories” (regardless of whether any conspiracy is actually implied), or else they get scooped up and embellished by people on the Internet to the point that they might as well feature big foot and bat boy and lizard people.
And then there are the truly evil people, like Adam Schiff. Though hardly anyone ever reaches the level of Schiff. He’s found ways to monetize, weaponize, and shield himself with the sensitive nature of the committee on which he sits and currently chairs. But I don’t want to get into Schiff right now except to say that the guy doesn’t have TDS — he is a full-blown sociopath. Highly intelligent and very dangerous.
The Democrats are the party of corruption, and the Republicans are the party of impotence.
