According to Gallup, on the issue of crime, President Joe Biden is 18 points underwater. While 57% of Americans disapprove of how he is handling crime, only 39% approve.

Biden’s dismal rating was recorded before the verdict came in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial — not guilty on all five counts — a verdict Biden declared had made him “angry.”

Biden’s rating also came before career criminal Darrell Brooks, free on \$1,000 bail after running over his girlfriend, drove his Ford Escape into the Waukesha Christmas parade, killing six and injuring 60.

Biden’s low rating on crime came before “flash mobs” of thieves in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York looted Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom and Apple, cleaning them out in minutes.

It came before the guilty verdicts came in against the three white men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery, the Black jogger, in Georgia.

Media efforts to infuse a racial motive to Rittenhouse’s action, however, failed. Rittenhouse is white, as were the three rioters he shot. As were the lead prosecutor and his deputy. As were Rittenhouse’s defense attorney and his deputy. And as was the judge.

Race never came up during Rittenhouse’s time on the witness stand. And nothing in his background suggests any link to “white supremacists,” as was insinuated by Biden, who has made no apology.

But what these incidents, involving killings with racial connotations, portend is that crime, race, law and order will be blazing issues in 2022 and 2024. And as of now, Biden and his Democratic Party are not on the side of America’s majority.

The latest statistics on homicide and murders for 2021 seem to guarantee that this mega-issue remains front and center.

A day before Thanksgiving, The Washington Post reported that Washington, D.C., had recorded its 200th homicide this year, surpassing last year’s total five weeks before this year’s end. Homicides in 2020 were up 30% from 2019.

Though Baltimore has a smaller population than D.C., there have been 300 killings there this year, half again as many as in D.C.

In Philadelphia, America’s sixth most populous city, there have been 503 victims of homicides thus far in 2021, a new record.

Who is doing all this shooting, knifing and killing on the savage streets of our great cities, and who are the principal victims?

Heather Mac Donald, among the nation’s foremost statisticians of crime, relates, using the figures for New York:

“In 2020, blacks were over 72% of all shooting suspects; we know that from victim and witness descriptions. Whites were 1.4% of all shooting suspects … based on victim and witness descriptions.”

“A black New Yorker is roughly 50 times as likely to commit a shooting as a white New Yorker. Blacks were 63.4% of murder suspects; whites, 6.3%. (That white share of homicide suspects represents domestic violence incidents, not street crime.)”

Bottom line: Disproportionately, the perpetrators, the shooters and the killers in America, are Black. As are their victims. If Black Lives Matter wants to preserve Black lives, they should look to their own communities because that is whence almost all of the killers come.

ORDER IT NOW

Indeed, of all of the Black folks who will have died of homicide or murder in D.C., Baltimore, Philly and New York this year, how many will have been shot or stabbed by Proud Boys, Three Percenters, Oath Keepers, white vigilantes, white supremacists or rogue white cops?

2022 and 2024 could prove to be a political rerun of the mid-’60s. Then it was that “law and order,” a slogan liberals called code words for racism, helped propel conservatives to preeminence in the GOP and thence to national power.

And between then and now, the similarities are many.

Then, there were the riots in Harlem and Watts in 1964 and 1965, Newark and Detroit in 1967, and D.C. and 100 other cities after the killing of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968. During those years, there was also a national explosion in violent street crime.

Then came the anti-war protests and riots, which kept Lyndon B. Johnson locked up in the White House in his final days in 1968 and tore apart the Democratic convention in Chicago.

Today’s Democratic Party is associated with defunding the police, ending cash bail for arrested felons, emptying prisons, and embracing the BLM and antifa “social justice protests” of 2020 that often involved looting, arson and assaults upon police.

As for Biden, the 2021 model bears little resemblance to the tough-talking Delaware senator who pushed the principal anti-crime bill of the 1990s and explained his approach in a 1994 Senate speech:

“Every time Richard Nixon, when he was running in 1972, would say, ‘Law and order,’ the Democratic match or response was, ‘Law and order with justice’ — whatever that meant. And I would say, ‘Lock the S.O.B.s up.'”

Today, the progressive wing of his party prevents Biden from taking that kind of stand. But that is what his country is calling for.

    exactly!

    It’s the war-mongering white supremacist neocons at Goldman Sachs who’re forcing poor and victimized blacks to lash out at an endemically racist system of oppression.

    As usual, blacks and Jews and other minorities are blamed for the evil of the eternal white supremacist and his racist treachery in forcing blacks to shoot down other blacks, while systematically waging illegal wars in the Middle East to persecute Jews.

    A leopard doesn’t change his spots, and the evil of the eternal white supremacist on Wall Street and the ZUS State Dept., never stops being the savage hater written in the genes of his white supremacist, racist DNA.

    When victim Darrell Brooks drove his SUV into that Christmas crowd, it was white supremacy that was mashing the gas pedal.

    When Victoria Nuland seeks war with Russia, she’s only doing the bidding of Billy Bob- the redneck truck driver with a Confederate flag on his bumper.

    Not one of those black victims of street crime in America would be dead were it not for the ‘white supremacist “US political-economic system” !

    “The US internal savage character is a reflection of the US international savage character.”

    Just say it!

    A reflection of the racist evil of the eternal white supremacist “international savage character” !

    Why tiptoe around the truth?!

    Every death in that Christmas parade is a direct consequence of Kyle Rittenhouse murdering Jews and BLM protesters, and then right on cue, (in Adolf Hitler’s America) getting away with it!!!

    Because America continues to be a racist, KKK, neo-Nazi- slavery, gas-chambers, polio-infused blankets, ‘not my daughter!’, insidiously evil nation of racists and anti-Semites, and nothing will change until they’re all marginalized as ‘domestic terrorists’ and blended out of existence.

    why does Pat follow the leftist paradigm of always mentioning race when the “victim” is black, and the “perpetrator” is white?

    While carefully censoring the races when the murderer is a black supremacist, and his victims are all white?

    Was that deliberate, or has he too, (perhaps subconsciously?) genuflected to the racist dictates of never offending blacks?

    the people of Finland are- relatively speaking, more wealthy than the people of Haiti.

    Does that mean the people of Finland (and all white nations) are responsible for the dysfunction and suffering of Haiti (or Africa and the black African diaspora)?

    When a black man kills a black man in Chicago or Philly, do you really believe that it’s a white man’s fault, because he shows up at his job everyday and works hard and pays his mortgage?

    Are blacks ever responsible for anything they do?

Democrats will not change because that is their ideology; thats who they are; Dems and Liberals believe blacks commit crimes because of racial discrimination by Whites; they believe bail to keep black criminals locked up is evil and racist; no one believes Biden is running again so the problem will be Kamala Harris; the likely 2024 Democrat nominee; supposedly many blacks are angry with Harris for her tough stance on crime when she was a prosecutor; Harris is in a bind; if she adopts a tough on crime stance blacks and party progressives will howl; if she takes a soft on crime stance she will lose; the Dems are heading for a cliff in 2022 and 2024 anyway.

    This greased the skids for the Jewish/non-White march through the institutions that cost Pat the presidency and cost Whites their country.

    there’s some truth to that, but there’s also a very real and immediate truth to this

    The people of Florida dodged a huge homosexual/woke-Negro-progressive/liberal dystopia bullet by less than half a percentage point of voters.

    It those voters would have stayed home, they’d be subjected today to massive immigration, lock-downs, wokeness on acid to the max, and a thousand other petty humiliations and deprivations from the dick-sucking Negro in the governor’s mansion.

    Instead, for all of De Santis’ grotesque fawning to Israel, he has governed Florida as well as any politician could, considering the insanity emanating out of every woke orifice to be found, including the ((media and Washington, DC)).

    If he were to run in 24 for the potus vs. Kamala; or some other woke skank, I don’t think the American people should be faulted if they do what they can, even voting in the rigged election, to preserve some tiny shred of their fast disappearing dignity and any hope for their doomed children.

    But you’re still right, the GOP are the worst traitorous scum on the planet. But they’re still marginally better than the Dems, who’d like to see your white daughter raped and your white son castrated before they’re both murdered outright. I’d even expect them to put that into law, if they had enough wokeness votes in the House and Senate.

  15. Yeah. The Democrats are down in the polls. That’s because they are stupid, ugly and violent. They could be replaced by Republicans if we had honest elections and maybe even if we don’t. Then we would have Republicans. A slight improvement.

    But the combination of corporate money and state power would remain. The Deep State would still run the Federal Government. Nothing good can come from the District of Corruption.

    Separation is the only way forward. Get out of the City. Practice localism. And teach your children it’s Okay to be White.

    Okay, one more time.

    It’s instructive to more closely Consider what Mr. Buchanan has had to say — and not — about that over the past year and a half.

    1. He first wrote that “the killing of George Floyd was an atrocity that cries out for justice” (June 2, 2020), a “sadistic public execution” (June 9, 2020).

    2. He then eased off for a while with the ambiguously passive “death under the knee of” Mr. Chauvin.

    3. Then, for a couple months, Mr. Floyd’s was a simple “death,” the official start of political summer.

    4. And that, for a while, was the end of the story as far “Mr. Paleoconservative” was concerned. He couldn’t have cared less about the official autopsy or the video footage suppressed by DA Keith Ellison. Mr. Buchanan had moved on because he, too, had used another media-curated atrocity to keep the sheep fighting among themselves.

    5. On December 29, 2020, the last Most Important Election Ever over and done, Mr. Buchanan — weaselingly, and still stirring the rAcIaL pot — seemed to acknowledge that the Establishment narratives he had perpetuated were false:

    On Memorial Day weekend, a white police officer in Minneapolis was taped kneeling for nine minutes on the neck of a Black suspect.

    Hours later, George Floyd would die[.]

    6. He never did get around, though, to the autopsy report, last year’s suppression of the full video, or much of the evidence and conduct of the trial.

    7. But on April 23, 2021, Mr. Buchanan passively accepted the narrative that the police officer’s actions were racially motivated. Why, one might ask? Well, go back and see for yourself— that column was to fire up Team Red over those Blue politicians calling them and their Founding Fathers racists, too.

    8. This column of microwaved Silent Majority stuff swaps out Floyd/Chauvin for a new cast of characters. But could it be any plainer that Mr. Buchanan is now herding Red sheep for the November 2022 Most Important Election Ever, in which voters have to side with the police (GOP) or the criminals and their radical enablers (Dems)?

    Very few of these Beltway people could care much less about George, Derek, Kyle, Darrell, grandmothers in Waukesha, Ahmaud, or anyone else smashed up like balsa chairs in the pro wrestling of national politics.

  21. If Black Lives Matter wants to preserve Black lives, they should look to their own communities because that is whence almost all of the killers come.

    The BoweLMovement can’t grift their own people, they have nothing.

  22. @Max Maxwell

    the Dems are heading for a cliff in 2022 and 2024 anyway.

    It matters not.

    In 1994 and during the Trump Era, P*ssy Republicans had unstoppable majorities. Nothing got done except the usual tax cuts.

    F*ck the uniparty, right in the neck.

    I suppose patriotic Americans enjoyed this scene more than most.

    I don’t know if votes count. I don’t know if the whole thing is rigged. But if Liz Cheney were to run for potus, or Stacy Abrams, then I’d do all in my power to prevent such an abomination in our time.

    But then if they were running against each other, and it was going to be one of the two, I’d simply be looking at Uruguay or some other distant extant, not yet immersed under the black pall of zion.

    There comes a point when I agree, and voting no longer matters one whit. I’m pretty sure we both agreed that Trump was better than Hillary, and the American people voting saved not just our sanity, but millions of people’s lives, and likely staved off a hot war with Russia.

    I get that people are cynical, and consider the whole process at the federal level as rotten to the core.

    I was a Ron Paul supporter when he ran, and watched up close and personal how the GOP cheated him outright. They all deserve to dance at the end of a rope. But even so, they’re still better than the Dems, whose racial hatred is so over the top that white men (because they’re white men) are being imprisoned for 30 years for filming altercations from their cars.

    Do people really understand the depths of the racial hate directed at white, Gentile men?

    I don’t think they do. I think they still cling to the notion that there remains in the ZUS some legacy of the Rule of Law, that makes murdering white men, (simply because they’re white men), an impossibility. But it’s already happening. White men have been murdered, and the assailants let go, if somehow the court can suggest that race had something, (even if only in the black assailant’s mind), to do with the death.

    Who believes for even one second, that if Kyle Rittenhouse’s assailants would have been blacks, rather than whites, that he be free today?

    There is zero chance of it. Zero.

    And this is the reality today. If you’re a white man, and you’re up against the cops, or Negros, or the local school board, then you’re arse is fucked. Period.

    You want to see where that is all heading? Palestinians. Like “domestic white supremacist terrorists’, as our federal Attorney General calls us all, they too know what it’s like to be inconvenient to the tribe. They too know what it’s like to be labeled ‘terrorists’ for simply wanting to live their lives unmolested by actual racial supremacist fiends.

    Yes, any Republican elected will dutifully betray us, and serve the tribe. But at least they generally are white men and women, and have to go home and live with their families, and inside their communities, and if they betray white America too egregiously, there at least could be some sort of push-back from their families and communities. Not so the Dems, whose communities harbor a hatred for white America that can split atoms.

    I don’t know if voting counts, but if Rand Paul were to run for potus against Kamala Harris or AOC (or some other bag of shit), then I’d vote. Even if it might (likely) be rigged. Even as I know Rand Paul, will in many ways, betray his oath, and serve zion. Yet, our lives are finite, and I simply don’t want to be witness to the New American Holodomor in my lifetime, when white communities are treated like the Kulaks, and the unvaccinated and ‘racists’ are stripped of all rights, and so forth and so on…

    When voting really no longer matters, and the borders are closed to emigration for ‘white supremacist domestic terrorists’, then perhaps I’ll consider ‘Plan B’.

    Not until then.

    Are

    blacks ever responsible for anything they do?

    Or is it always Joe the Plumbers’ fault?

    OK, let’s take this from basics.

    European descended people (one branch of the Caucasians, the others ranging from Slavic to the East and above Saharan/Middle East to the South, broke out of Western Europe in the 1500s using highly automated (by block and tackle) Dutch flute ships, and invented a new social system in the 1600s that produced equipment and organization that destabilized every other society on the planet!!!

    The rest of the world is still infuriated by this, and (as humans do) wants to avenge the insult in blood provided that they, themselves, aren’t destroyed in the process. This is known as “international competition”, and has always been a feature of humans. Humans may be regarded as highly evolved chimpanzees, and “international competition” may be regarded as a development of the border patrols conducted by male chimps (who are always brothers or half brothers). Note that chimps can wage war — take over the territories of adjacent chimpanzee “bands of brothers”, or a band of brothers can assault another group of chimps, kill the dominant chimps, kill existing juveniles chimps. and take control of the adult females. They can also have revolutions — replacement of the dominant chimps, who are killed in the process, by a previously subordinate social group of chimps.

    The above is ignored in polite society, which prefers what amounts to wartime propaganda about itself and other groups. Such discussion dominates except on sites like unz.com, where it is merely influential.

    Part of the wartime propaganda is to say that inter-group relations are exactly like intra-group relations. People within groups (families being the strongest example) have obligations to each other that people in different groups do not have. The propaganda is to say that people from group A, which may have built itself a habitat it prefers (example: Mormons, Utah), should treat members of group B, which has not done so, in the same way they treat each other. Doesn’t happen, never will, for Homo Sapiens. The reward structure of the genetic evolutionarily stable strategy enforces this.

    So, let’s look a the “minority”-white game as now played.

    Western European descended Whites: We have this territory, and we have built a society that suits us, especially as it is constantly changing to use resources available.

    Blacks: It does not suit us. About half of us have an IQ below 85, so we cannot work productively. Half our relatives can’t support themselves productively, and end up in the criminal markets. Family ties say that we have to do something to protect half our relatives. Further, our young men cann0t contest among themselves to determine who is the most fit, as is only right an proper. Many of them kill themselves with drugs, and some (not a large fraction) kill or wound each other with pistols.

    Asians: It does not suit us. We are used to a society in which position, once gained, is kept for the remainder of life. The constant change and lack of social order is highly objectionable.

    Above Saharan/Middle East: Western European descended are not of the only true religion, and therefore act incomprehensibly, imposing imaginary order on a universe that can have no order because it is ruled by a supernatural being that is limited by nothing, including the supernatural being’s own statements. Further, see IQ problems above.

    All of these groups vividly remember the 1500s European Breakout, which changed the satisfactory society they had previously had into an unsatisfactory Western society. Further, average world IQ 82, so about half the world can never work productively in an industrial society. For such low IQ groups, industrial society is unsatisfactory for family reasons as well as for lack of emotional/cognitive “fit”.

    So: Mijj’s original statement was:

    > “Who is doing all this shooting, knifing and killing on the savage streets of our great cities”

    the US political-economic system. The US internal savage character is a reflection of the US international savage character.

    The “savage character” is simply a characteristic of human groups. Mijj is simply claiming that this is wrong, that all humans should be treated as if they were members of the same group (presumably Mijj’s group).

    I’m not saying that the US should continue its current policy. Even the US doesn’t believe that. The US has switched from trying to tie the world together with “globalization” to abandoning Eurasia and trying for an “oceanic strategy” (americandiplomacy.web.unc.edu/2000/02/mackinders-world/) with its new AUKUS strategy and its new abandonment of Europe and NATO. The US was left with only this strategy choice after giving up all assets in Afghanistan. We will now see an alliance between Western Europe and the CIS (we can see first steps now with GASPROM and the Ukraine), and some sort of fight in Asia to determine who dominates what.

    Right now, China is diverting into China what was once India’s water from Himalayan Plateau headwaters. India can’t let that happen without a noticeable drop in its population. China can’t feed itself, and can either divert or lose part of its population (and the current government) if it does not divert the headwaters. Both nations will make strenuous attempts to resolve the situation in its favor, and you can bet that Mijj won’t mention that. He doesn’t mention the Taliban’s implicit appeal to “right of conquest” when it took over Afghanistan. “Right of conquest” was a previously legitimate way of taking territory before WW II. After that, the right was supposedly nullified, but clearly has not been except for Western European descended. One can expect further intense conflicts over Eastern Siberia, between Ethiopia and Egypt (over Nile headwaters), and continued slaughter in Tibet, where China is trying to make low altitude Han the dominant population at an altitude where the thin air makes pregnancy very risky for Han ancestry, but not for Tibetans. Mijj doesn’t mention that, or care about it.
    Same thing with Imperial Japan’s attempt to rule Asia in WW II. Are Asians immune to committing brutality? Consider US Asian POWs in WW II, or British POWs during the Sepoy Rebellion. Heck, during the US Revolutionary War, POWs of the British were kept on disease ridden prison ships during winter and had about a 50% mortality rate. The British did that to encourage US POWs to fight in British units, an attempt that failed.

    So all this stuff about “your side is intrinsically bad” has about the same relevance to reality as “Your mother wears Army boots” (think about it). Look up “Dover Beach” by Mathew Arnold, which was written in the 1850s while liberal European society was failing (Revolutions of 1848) into what would, within 70 years, become the First World War.
    Or, look up the song with refrain “You’ve got to have heart” for something similar but lighter, 1950s popular US culture. It was intended as a parody, but it makes a good point: Heart is about all we have left.

    When the ZUS succumbs to overt, in-your-face, anti-white rule, don’t expect Russia or anywhere else to come to the aid of the ‘exceptional people’. Most people world-wide, will savor the ZUS descending into an Orwellian hell on earth for its ‘exceptional’ citizens, and with good reason.

    We are on our own. And the hounds of racial hatred are baying at our throats.

    Sure, the GOP are as adept at betrayal as they are at self-serving obeisance to our enemies.

    It pays after all. Paul Ryan and Mitt are very, very comfortable these days.

    But even so, would you prefer AOC to Donald Trump?

    We all know Trump betrayed us all. And mocked us with his pardons and other treasons. But yet, a regime by Trump vs. a regime by AOC, would still be vastly different in its treatment of you and your family. Vastly, staggeringly- different.

    Because Trump is a whore and a rat, (evil, if you like), is that any reason to hand the reins of power over to your and your families worst enemies?

    I suppose I’m just a realist. I harbor no illusions that America will ever elect an honest president. They’d be ((murdered)) before they even got close. America is in fact, doomed. Just as is Western Europe and other places.

    But I don’t want to be witness to AOC’s America if I don’t have to. We already know what Zimbabwe looks like. So I’m not even curious. I’ve read about the Kulaks, and so I feel no need to see it happen to my extended family.

    If you don’t believe that the hatred of the left for white America – rises to the level of the Holodomor and the Bolsheviks, then all I can say is you haven’t been paying attention.

    And deserves got nothing to do with it.

    why does Pat follow the leftist paradigm of always mentioning race when the “victim” is black, and the “perpetrator” is white?

    Because Pat doesn’t want to lose his syndication and coveted spot on the McLaughlin Group. He’s been punished in the past for telling racial truths but has decided to take the easy way out to keep his syndication and few media appearances.

    Tucker is apparently too scared to have Pat on his show. There must be some unwritten rule at FOX that Pat Buchanan and certain other people are persona non grata. Meanwhile, it’s 24/7 anti-white bomb throwing at CNN and MSNBC while FOX plays it race neutral and “Dems R the real racists”.

    “But what these incidents, involving killings with racial connotations, portend is that crime, race, law and order will be blazing issues in 2022 and 2024.”

    Just as riotous 1968 [MLK & RFK murder riots, Chicago Democratic National Convention] gave Pat a useful ‘law and order’ mime that helped put Nixon over the top. It’s easy: choose inflammatory episodes, inflate them to ‘sky is falling’ Defcon Four and solicit unthinking, animal compliance.

    “And as of now, Biden and his Democratic Party are not on the side of America’s majority.”

    LOL! We’ve heard that before. Spiro Agnew rallied Nixon’s “silent majority” when not busy with criminal conspiracy, bribery, extortion and tax fraud. When Dick and Spiro expanded the Vietnam War into Cambodia (instead of ending it as promised), the Kent State Massacre was the kind of ‘law and order’ Pat had in mind.

    “The latest statistics on homicide and murders for 2021 seem to guarantee that this mega-issue remains front and center.”

    Unfortunately, they don’t boil in their own stew. The transolant themselves to red areas when things go bad at home, and then destroy their new homes. Freedom of movement should have been banned 60 years ago.

    It might soon move past “crime is just a city thing.” If so, what can be done? When I visited a Buenos Aires suburb, I saw a small guard booth at every intersection. When I visited a South Africa suburb, every home had fortress architecture. If the suburbs are “reconfigured” by the Dems, will private security and fortress architecture be allowed? Would anyone even work as a private security guard, after a few who are forced to kill criminals are sent to a supermax? And even if the above protection measures are allowed, that’s a heckuva way to live.

    They want suburbanites to be powerless, and miserable, and beaten-down. No first or second amendment. They want no smiles; and no pleasant things. Even if a suburbanite has not had his stuff taken away, there’s nothing pleasant to do with it.

    European descended people … … invented a new social system in the 1600s that produced equipment and organization that destabilized every other society on the planet!!!

    no, but the colonization by Europeans of the New World did have long-ranging consequences for the people of the Americas, Australia, and a few others.

    The benefits vs. the costs of that colonialism are still being parsed, depending on one’s view of a happy society.

    Greta calls Buchanan the ‘right sash of the Overton Window’, (the correct terminology being the ‘styles’ or ‘jamb’, but whatever).

    In any case, I’ve come to see Tucker as that role.

    But if Buchanan was on his show, I’d definitely want to watch.

    ‘So China is our real problem, huh?

    ‘Yes, China is mistreating the Uyghers, and they vacuum up their citizen’s electronic data for their own, scheming purposes’.

    ‘That data belongs to Google, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook and ((others)). Who do the Chinese think they are, anyways? With that data, you have real power over people’s lives and even the destinies of nations and even civilizations. How can we sit by and allow China to amass such nefarious power?’

    Voting GOP legitimizes the system. You guys who keep falling for the “lesser evil” false choice have seen your position erode every year.

    The GOP is openly endorsing tranny stuff (Kaitlin is a “she” and it’s on Hannity), gays etc… now. The only position they haven’t compromised on every year you’ve kept voting for them is Israel.

    This game is rigged and the only way to win is to walk away from the table. I’m not voting for arsenic because cyanide is worse.

    I agree. But Hillary never got to be president.

    Just for that, I’ll be eternally grateful to Trump and those who voted for him (against her ; )

    Hillary is one of the three worst human beings on the planet. Well, one of two now that John McBloodstain is rotting in hell. The other being Dick Cheney.

    Just that fact that she was denied her presidency, as she saw it, is a gift that just keeps on giving, every time I’m reminded of that blood-drenched gorgon.

    You may characterize it as arsenic vs. cyanide, and in a way, I agree.

    But that’s the choices we’re left with these days, and putting one’s head in the sand, isn’t going to change that.

    They are not going to notice a ground-swell of voters refusing to vote, and decide they they then have no legitimacy.

    They really couldn’t give a flying ***** about any notion of ‘legitimacy’, they laugh at such things.

    All they care about it power. Wielding raw power over others, and the less well-meaning people vote, the more power they’ll have.

    Not that it always matters much, but in the case of Hillary, this was for me personally, a great and sublime moment. One I’ll aways savor and savor…

    There are many factors to consider. I hate Bitch McF*kface more than you, but states with powerful senior politicos always bring in pork.

  41. The 2014 murderous rioters in Ferguson didn’t deter the brain dead boobs in the rancid Republican Party from going SOFT AND WEAK ON CRIME.

    Rand “Mophead” Paul and many, many other bonehead slob GOP boobs, a year after the Ferguson riots, were calling for a massive jailbreak and bail reform and other stuff designed to flood the USA with crime and violence and mayhem of a sort unimaginable to many decent people.

    Chris Christie and that Rick Perry turd from Texas and Huckleberry and Grover Norquist and a whole collection of filthy Republican Party scum were screaming like nutcakes about letting everybody and their violent brother out of prison in a massive jailbreak.

    Trump joined in on the jailbreak boosterism once he attained the presidency because of that Jared Kushner twat and maybe too much golf with that high IQ moron dolt named Rand Paul.

    TRUMP IS A JAILBREAK SUPPORTER

    TRUMP IS SOFT AND WEAK ON CRIME

    “states with powerful senior politicos always bring in pork.”

    True. Senior politicians and/or a concentration of federal workers/retirees (like CIA Phil Giraldi). Number one Welfare State: Virginia, which reaps \$111.785 billion more than it pays in tax = \$13,096 per capita = \$2.24 for every \$1 paid in tax. A swamp nearly as deep as Kentucky or Mir-a-Lago.

    Of course Mitch’s case is all the sweeter for wife Elaine Chao’s terms (1989-91; 2017-21) as Secretary of Transportation and daughter of James S. C Chao, merchant mariner and founder of Foremost Maritime Corporation (later the Formost Group). Brilliant family. Who gifted (by many accounts) \$25 million to Mitch, Kentucky’s Mr. ‘Self-Reliant’.

    “Congressional budget reconciliation documents released by the House Natural Resources Committee reveal lawmakers plan to direct \$200 million to a park in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco congressional district.”

    True again. Lived/worked in SF mid-late 80s. Great city. The joke then was only a senator (Diane Feinstein?) could get a License to Carry (three granted per year): average Joes need not apply. All are equal, but some are more equal? (apologies Orwell).

    Doubtless since then politicians (left and right) have security details that run interference. No problem with that, aside from a two-tier society: representatives that can, on the one hand, espouse Second Amendment rights for unbalanced 15-year-olds and curry favor with criminally irresponsible parents, take NRA donations and hide behind bodyguards.

    “So at the same time you accuse Red States of being leeches, you demand they keep sticking to your skin?”

    Not at all. Have Red and Blue antecedents (Fort Sumter, Vicksburg, etc.). To Red State cousins: want to succeed? Go for it! Ask Mitch for your annual welfare check (good luck).

    Don’t blame me for Red/Blue State pigs at the trough. Mud wrestling’s a dirty business. I blame my senators/reps for the \$10 billion my state donates in excess of tax paid, but what’s the point? Iowa’s Chuck Grassley, who’s been on the dole since 1975 (ethanol, farm insurance and crop subsidies) is remarkably astute in reaping every penny from donor states while demonizing them for ‘radical socialism’. Total scum-bag.

    “Red States need their own borders just to keep fleeing blue staters out.”

    Amen! Keep them out of Mississippi/Alabama/Louisiana (nadir states that excel in homicide, firearm mortality, infant mortality, poverty, birth out of wedlock, lowest life expectancy etc.).

    Stay well SoO
