Despite all the media promotion, there is no organic interest in O’Rourke. Search volume in the US since the beginning of December, after the dust of the mid-terms had settled, for the top four candidates and O’Rourke:

Search index scores–basically average interest over the period–are as follows:

Biden — 20
Warren — 18
Harris — 17
Sanders — 14
O’Rourke — 1

The Democrat party is not going to nominate the Macron-Trudeau hybrid in 2020. I could not figure out how serious people–and serious money, as he was until very recently at the top of the PredictIt 2020 Dem market–were identifying him as the frontrunner. The only two white men with a chance at the nomination are Biden and Sanders, both on account of their long party histories. The days of white male Democrats rising to the top of the party are over. There are those like the aforementioned Biden and Sanders who will be grandfathered in, but the door to national-level leadership is shut for new entrants.

Even though Obama was a US senator who gave the 2004 DNC keynote address, it wasn’t until The Audacity of Hope was released in October of 2006, insinuating an impending presidential run, that he attracted all the attention that he did. Here is search volume for the first nine months of 2006, comparable to the first nine months of 2018 with regards to the respective presidential election cycles:

I distinctly remember making a lighthearted joke about Obama to a few black guys while playing basketball in a section 8 apartment complex gym near the place I worked at in the summer of 2006 and no one knew who I was talking about. Parenthetically, the complex is in a suburban area that was fairly nice then and is still livable today, though it is predictably declining as the demographics of the area shift. And yes, there was (still is, probably) a rec center–a pretty crappy one, with nothing but a basketball court of any use, but an indoor center all the same–in the middle of a section 8 apartment complex.

I’ve talked to several black people over the last several months who similarly have no recognition of the name “Kamala Harris”. When they find out she’s a black(enough) woman running for president, she will become their candidate.

  1. Kamala Harris is a kind of double or nothing candidate.

    On the one hand, ahe’s more likely to lose. On the other hand, what if she wins?

    I suppose my ideal Democratic candidate would be Bernie Sanders. On the one hand, he really should lose. On the other hand, if he wins…well, maybe he’ll pull the plug on Israel.

    It could happen. Seriously…

  2. I agree that the system wants someone like Harris, who is showing fealty to jewish power, but can tick the right boxes (non-White, woman). Sort of like a Clinton in blackface.

    I still think that it is possible for a candidate to unite whites+hispanics and some progressive asians, but whether that or Beto or not is of a lesser importance.

    The dream candidate for me would be Tulsi Gabbard, who genuinely challanges the system. Now that the neo-Cohenists are moving from the GOP to the democratic party – because they see the demographic writing on the wall – it is important to get active in the democratic primaries as well. Otherwise we’ll end up with the same neo-Cohenist agenda (endless wars for Israel) regardless.

    White people should become flexible. We will remain the largest voting bloc for this entire entire. If we act like a cohesive unit the way many other racial groups are, we will then unlock a tremendous amount of political power. Those who wish us harm know this, which is why they are working overtime to prevent White solidarity.

Those who wish us harm know this, which is why they are working overtime to prevent White solidarity.

    Just let’s keep in mind that around half of the white people in this country wake up in the morning and say “I hate white people” and then post it to Twitter & Facebook, reciting it on their way to work where it’s essentially the one non-controversial thing everyone can agree upon. When they get home from work, they turn on their TV sets where everyone can see just how despicable white people really are, especially as opposed to all of the virtuous POCs now supplanting them in virtually every sphere of life.

    Thought experiment: If a tiny, fanatical tribe of racist hatemongers had seized the reins of power in this country, bent upon the enslavement if not the actual erasure of the very people who saved their brethren from the Evil Nazis in WW2, how would things be different? If they controlled the flow of information, what changes would we expect to see? What if they were clever enough to hide their tracks, or at least to make it social death to notice?

    Hope for as many black candidates as possible. As the number goes up the chances that one or more will run on, “Vote for me, my ass is the blackest” goes up. (And that’s a good thing.)

    The black vote is extremely important in places like SC; see Clinton v. Sanders.

  7. The idea of all of the mentioned people as chief executive of the most influential nation on the planet truly revolts me. What a sad grab bag of idiots, incompetents and grifters.

  8. “When they find out she’s a black(enough)

    Do you think her (((white))) husband will hurt that perception among blacks?

    At least Barry the Fairy was half long term planner enough to realize he needed to marry a prototypical angry negress if he was going anywhere in Illinois politics.

    Komodo Harris had better find some good handlers to help her explain who the nerdy white is in all of those photos with her to the brothers.

  9. I see that purple flat-lined graph at the top for Mr. O’Rourke. However, your Øb☭ma anecdote would seem to contradict the dismissing of O’Rourke due to his organic search numbers. Was it Øb☭ma’s book that got him famous? I think it was the fact the TPTB, The Powers That Be, in prepper parlance, had selected Mr. Øb☭ma and the Lyin’ Press goes along with TPTB.

    These people get SELECTED more than ELECTED. If there are globalist elites behind the scenes that think O’Rourke is their man, due to his bribability and blackmailability, and assurances of his not being a guy that’ll go completely off the script, then they will SELECT him. All of a sudden, he will be in the news 24/7, and then those internet search hits will go up, up, up.

    That’s not to say he will be SELECTED if he can’t win based on D-squad demographics, but if Joe Biden can be in the running, then the Beta-man could too. I would like to see Harris get nominated, as I think it would wake up even more white people.

  10. Beto O’Rourke is a rich boy globalizer rat boob who pushes mass legal immigration and amnesty for illegal alien invaders.

    Teddy Cruz is a Canadian rat Goldman Sach’s banker hubby politician whore who pushes mass legal immigration. Teddy Cruz is a fake American.

    Teddy Cruz pushes nation-wrecking mass legal immigration.

    Teddy Cruz has also pushed for the legalization of illegal alien invaders.

    Legalization IS Amnesty!

    LEGALIZATION IS AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS

    Mass legal immigration increases income inequality, lowers wages, increases housing costs, swamps schools, overwhelms hospitals, increases poverty, harms the environment and destroys cultural cohesion.

    Mass legal immigration is used by the evil WASP/JEW ruling class of the United States as a demographic weapon to attack the European Christian ancestral core of the USA.

    I don’t know about that. Remember what a smooch-fest the McCain funeral was? The Democrats and the Neocons and the Wall Street Republicans are all getting pretty cozy with each other. The Democratic Party seems ripe for a hostile takeover by someone from the GOPe, whom they could polish and present as the voice of reason and sanity in contrast to Trump’s recklessness. If I were Mitt Romney, I would consider running as a Democrat.

  12. 216 says:
    @Intelligent Dasein

    The “plan” if there is to be one, would involve the GOP collapsing, and a DSA/Green Party emerging to the left of the Democrats. But its hard to say if the Dems would see any need to accommodate former GOP pols. In a system where they have unchecked electoral power, some kind of “Truth Commission” will be established to delegitimize as much of the “old regime” as possible. Neocons like Crenshaw will certainly be welcomed.

    The GOP pols would also make an easy scapegoat for the expected wave of violence that will occur in this scenario from the far-right. I make no predictions about the size, but anyone is foolish to think that violence will decrease under a perma-left government.

  13. Audacious Epigone misses the essential point about Beto:

    Texas/electoral college

    if Harris gets the nod, then brings in Beto as VP,

    demoncrats flip both Florida and Texas, and win election easily in the EC.

    reverse ticket would do the same.

    running some old White f**k like Biden or Sanders is about the only way the Dems can lose the 2020 election.

    and by 2024, “demographic change” will have sent the Republiscam party the way of the Whigs.

    leaving non-urban Whites no place to go but the gun.

    excellent.

    I did the “thought experiment” in which “racist hatemongers” have seized power and the flow of information: I concluded it’s not much of a “thought” experiment after all — that U.S. is nearly here. One more generation perhaps to completion. What changes to expect, you ask. We will become a blend of Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela and South Africa. Open borders. (However, no immigration from China — too decent, industrious, smart.) Socialism. Reparations. Confiscation of white earnings and assets, legally, through legislation. Collapsing infrastructure and services. Collapse of proficiency and conscientiousness…replaced by “get it basically right.” However, airline pilots, air traffic controllers, and surgeons will remain white. There will be a masking effect to the above in that smartphones will continue to improve.

    Interesting scenario, S.N. If it comes to that, and we’ve missed the chance to turn things around with extreme prejudice, then I will no longer be a participant. Hello, Uruguay!.

    Wouldn’t that be karmic – considering that after WWI, Woodrow ‘14 Points for Me, Zero for Thee‘ Wilson oversaw a process whereby German colonies were transferred to the control of the French and British, and German nationals were expropriated without compensation. (And don’t mention the blockade, which was still killing children in 1920).

    I checked her out in a couple long interviews on YouTube. Nothing “freaky” about her at all. Quite the opposite. She is such an intelligent, articulate, good hearted, calm and confident person. She is the only Democrat that even Republicans find appealing (based on the comments to the 2 videos I watched). See for yourself:

    It will be interesting to see how she and her many fans handle the inevitable vicious attacks she will face for belonging to a Hindu cult.

    A Bernie Sanders-Tulsi Gabbard ticket is a possibility….

  34. @Achmed E. Newman

    I think I’ve mentioned it to you before, but do your due diligence anyway my friend. Chile is the answer now that NZ has closed itself off to the possibility.

    Chile is nearly impossible to assail by land, the Andes make a formidable border. As does the Atacama to the north. A sea assault means crossing the Pacific.

    Chile has had English/Spanish mandatory education for two decades now. It’s population, according to the CIA World Factbook, is among the whitest in the world. Villages in the mountainous south resemble Bavaria as do their denizens. The government is financed off the nationalized copper mines and world demand for copper can only grow as electrification expands to the third world. Chile supposedly has a “socialist” government (pendulum swing from Pinochet’s necessary reforms) but it’s still less socialist than the US is.

    Biden’s just a “get off my lawn” angry old man. I don’t see how he would energize a browning and anti-white base, but maybe a herculean effort at racial masochism could pull it off.

    There’s little doubt. Marrying a Jew in Cali is not going to hurt her at the state level, because the relatively few blacks there are no match at the booth for the massive population of self hating white liberals and lemming mestizos.

Kushner is destroying him (Prison reform and now amnesty for a tiny wall? Are you kidding me!?!). Long gone are the days of Trump leading the chorus of “Build the Wall!” at his packed, enthusiastic rallies. Nothing has been done on immigration or the wall and it’s only got worse. This drama over building the wall is nonsense – had Trump fulfilled his biggest promise and started building the wall on January 21, 2016, he would be Godzilla Trump in 2020. Now, it looks like Kamala Harris will be the one to beat in 2020.

    Tulsi is something that just doesn’t exist the experience of most people today. She is a genuine pagan of a high and sincere religiousity.
