“I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”

With this remark — arrogant, dismissive, contemptuous — in his debate with Glenn Youngkin, Terry McAuliffe committed a historic gaffe.

From that debate forward, his poll numbers steadily sank until McAuliffe lost his lead, and with it, the election.

And going down to defeat, McAuliffe dragged with him his fellow Democratic candidates for lieutenant governor and attorney general and watched Virginia’s House of Delegates revert to Republican rule.

What was McAuliffe saying, and what were Virginians hearing, in his remark? McAuliffe was saying that, in deciding what should be taught in its public schools, Virginia parents should just sit down and shut up.

Thus, a year after Joe Biden won Virginia by 10 points did McAuliffe lose the state by three, a 13-point turnaround. In New Jersey, which Biden had won by 16, the popular Democratic governor barely survived a cliffhanger.

These dramatic shifts in voter behavior testify to a serious misreading by Democrats of the presidential election returns of 2020.

Biden’s total of 81 million votes, with a 7-million vote margin over former President Donald Trump, had been hailed as testament that his time had come and that the American people had both rejected Trumpism and embraced the liberal policies and politics of good old Uncle Joe.

But the 2020 election was in reality a referendum on a single simple question: Do you want four more years of Trump? Yes or no?

Some 74 million people came out and voted to keep Trump in the White House, the largest number of voters ever won by a president.

However, an even larger number of voters were saying, “Enough!”

As moderate Democrats, desperate to halt the progress of Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primaries, had voted for Biden to prevent a socialist from winning their nomination, voters who wanted an end to the Trump era cast their votes for the other name on the ballot, which was also Biden.

In 2020, Biden lit no fires in the primaries and spent most of the general election sheltering in the basement of his Wilmington, Delaware, home.

A vote for Biden was a mandate to replace Trump, not to overturn Trump’s signature policies of no more wars, secure the border, cut taxes, rebuild the manufacturing base, reduce trade deficits, deregulate the economy and unleash the power of the U.S. free market system.

The Biden victory was a rejection of Trump, not a mandate for the agenda of Biden’s party, which, with its left-wing core dominant, is outside the mainstream of America.

When the American people voted for Biden, they were voting for competence and an end to the daily conflict and chaos, not a Second Great Society.

They were not voting for \$6 trillion or \$3.5 trillion for cradle-to-grave socialism. They were not voting to “Defund the Police!” or tear down statues of Christopher Columbus and Confederate soldiers, or rename schools carrying the names of George Washington, Woodrow Wilson, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson and Robert E. Lee.

ORDER IT NOW

They were certainly not voting to abandon Trump’s wall and throw open the nation’s borders to anyone who can make it through Mexico to the Rio Grande — or to give \$450,000 in reparations for migrant families who were separated from their children after breaching our border.

They were not voting to have their children taught in public schools that the country they love is shot through with “systemic racism,” and most children in America are born into “white privilege” and belong to an oppressor class whose victims are children of color.

The message to the Democratic Party Virginia sent was this:

“You can indulge the crazies in your party, but if the American people come to believe you share their ideas and intend to implement them, we are going to relieve you of control of Congress in 2022 and of the White House in 2024. Rely upon it.”

Biden, who is today 10 points down from where he began his presidency, is facing some seemingly insurmountable problems.

More than 1 million people have illegally crossed the U.S. border into our country since he took office. The debacle of the early days of our withdrawal from Afghanistan are indelibly fixed in the public mind and identified with him.

Prices of food and gas and other necessities have risen even more rapidly than the 4-5% inflation that shows no sign of abating.

Supply chains for U.S. goods from abroad, from autos to appliances, are clogged, with container ships backed up in the Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors. And Biden is himself a portrait in confusion and contradiction.

Daily he loses his train of thought in public fora, forgetting places and names. While shutting down pipelines from Canada into our country to save the planet from the scourge of fossil fuels, Biden is calling on the Saudis to pump more oil to cut gasoline prices at the pump in the USA.

Having lost Virginia, Biden and his party look today like they are beginning to lose America.

  2. Ann Coulter says the Demmies are gonna use MORE IMMIGRANTS to win back Virginia.

    But she’s missing the point. Why is ‘diversity’ damaging to whites and conservatives? Because Jews control the US and use non-whites against whites. Via media and academia, Jews encourage anti-white animus among whites. Of course, Jews have convinced plenty of whites to hate other whites, and even conzo whites are most afraid of being ‘racist’.

    So, diversity is most problematic because Jews have weaponized it against whites. Whatever goes wrong, Jews blame whites. When blacks attack Asians, Jews in media and politics blame ‘white supremacism’, and yellows, being turdy craven dogs hungry for approval from authority, go with the bogus narrative.

    And Jews encourage browns to be anti-white.

    The only solution to anti-white diversity is anti-Jewish diversity. It’s only natural that if Jews use diversity against whites, whites should use diversity against Jews. Whites should spread the message that Jews rule America, Jews control the wealth, Jews control the deep state, Jews use US power to murder tons of non-whites Arabs and Muslims. Whites should remind people of historical narratives of Jews exploiting blacks.

    Thus weaponized against Jews, diversity can be an advantage to whites as Jewish Power is the most serious threat to white survival. Jews don’t worry about diversity because they get to weaponize against whites. But if whites weaponized it against Jews, Jews will worry.

    But what is the state of affairs in the US? Jews use diversity against whites, but whites pledge to protect Jews from diversity.

    So, Ann Coulter should worry less about diversity than about how it’s turned against whites by Jews. She should urge whites to change course and start weaponizing diversity against Jews. Begin by supporting BDS.

    But fat chance of that happening. When even race-realist Jared Taylor sucks up to Jews even after they took everything from him, it’s hopeless with milquetoast conzos.
    Jews kick Taylor in the ass, and what does he do? He goes into hysterics about the Muslim threat to whites and Jews in the hope that Jews won’t whip him so badly.

    Jews are not about siding with whites or with Muslims. Jews are about making goy fight goy. Jews use whites to invade Muslim lands and kill bushels of Arabs. And then, Jews welcome Arabs as ‘refugees’ and uses them as allies against ‘xenophobic’ white Christo-conzos. Jews use whites to support Zionist erasure of Palestine but then reaches out to Arab-Americans to oppose ‘Islamophobic’ white conzos.

    It’s really simple. Jews use diversity against whites. When will whites use diversity against Jews?
    If whites won’t, they are finished and deserve to lose cuz they’re too dumb or craven to stare truth in the face and act accordingly.

  3. This assumes that the fix wasn’t in while evidence indicates it was in.

  4. However, an even larger number of (biden) voters were saying, “Enough!”

    The problem is the two party system. It is a source of elite tyranny. It has no finesse. The idea that one must vote for Biden to get rid of Trump is part of the inherent insanity.

    The Republic was not supposed to depend on the existence of parties, but parties have long ago become the backbone for the execution electoral choices. This should never have been. If the Constitution has skimped on anything it is in defining the meaning of the electoral process.

    For all the effort spent on defining the three branches of government in an effort to reduce the risk of centralized tyranny little thought was spent on the relation of the electorate to this government. Essentially the electorate is to choose the elected officers of the government. What this really means in practice was never spelled out and it should have been.

    If the electorate is a body that chooses the representatives who will actually sit in the offices of the government then functions such as nomination of candidates, rules for the dissemination of information on the candidates nominated, and election rules should have become the responsibility of the electorate. Most particularly representatives as government officials would have no role in the choices of the electoral body.

    This would mean that the electorate would be come the Electorate. A body defined in the Constitution with a defined role just as the legislative, executive, and judicial branches are defined with specified duties and procedures for the exercise of those duties.

    The Electorate would of course be a body with many millions of citizens in its membership, but it would not necessarily encompass the entire adult population. It would have its own rules for membership defined generally in the Constitution and implemented through rules and institutions defined in the Constitution for the Electorate.

    As it is these functions have been ad hoc and have devolved on political parties and media controlled by elites who have farmed the People for their votes in an effort to advance various private and semi-private interests at the expense of the general interest. Candidacy has been restricted to individuals who will serve party interests and the backers of the parties above all else. This is not democracy, but aristocracy in disguise.

    The US should have had a fourth branch of government, the Electorate, defined in the Constitution with the function of choosing candidates, disseminating basic candidate information, providing electoral machinery and policing for its own integrity. It sorely needs it now when it is likely far too late. The parties have proven they are loose cannon on the ship of state.

  6. Biden was elected through fraud. Mail in ballots were accumulated and marked for Biden in key areas and dumped in the night when it was obvious that Biden was going to lose.

    Just counting normal votes, Trump won the 2020 election by a landslide.

    Then Biden voters weren’t paying attention to what Biden said or didn’t say. He clearly supported health care and special privileges for illegal aliens at the primary debates and cast aspersions on state and local police. Biden refused to answer or was evasive when asked about packing the SCOTUS or ending the filibuster.

    But stupid Sally soccer mom types weren’t paying attention and were fixated on big meanie and “racist” Donald Trump.

    The morons who voted for Biden were not voting for Trumpism without Trump. They were punishing Trump for his mean tweets and their foolish belief that by getting rid of Trump America would go back to “normal”.

    Trump could be a clown and didn’t help matters at times but most of the drama and instability was due to phony impeachment and faux scandals cooked up by radical Democrats and far left wing operatives in deep state agencies in conjunction with the Mockingbird media.

  8. This column shows, once again, that Mr. Buchanan’s job is to protect the Establishment by channeling dissent into voting GOP. Paraphrasing Ray Epps, We have to go in to the booth.

    Watch this space over the next twelve months. More and more of what he bleats will trot sheep around to the same shearing pen through the Red+Blue gates of the next Most Important Election Ever.

  9. Anon[307] • Disclaimer says:

    Mr. Buchanan appears to be telling us repeatedly why Biden won and Trump lost while studiously ignoring the simple fact that there is overwhelming evidence to suggest that Trump actually won, and by a large margin. This is not to pronounce a final judgment on that question, but to say that there is something obviously dishonest in Buchanan’s pretense that there is no such question.

    Sad to say, but Buchanan is (and always has been) an authoritarian, the opposite of a libertarian. But libertarians are essentially right and authoritarians are essentially wrong.

    Being free is good. Bossing everyone around is evil. Back in his early days when Buchanan was a TV star, he was a rude, motor-mouthed little bully. Now he is a stately old gentleman who expounds on political history. But his political philosophy remains the same: wayward rebels like Trump must go so that well-read establishment thinkers like Buchanan can continue being the establishment and continue bossing everyone around.

    As I and others have said before, the damage will be done and it will be irreparable long before the midterms and the 2024 presidential election. The Va.vote will be a wake up call for the left to enact as much legislation as it can while still holding a majority.
    Those of us old enough to remember the LBJ years know that his agenda not only became law but was continued by Nixon. Legislation once passed is never revoked.

  12. Halfway thru the article, Pat said that: “When the American people voted for Biden, they were voting for competence.” Pat should have added “LOL.”

    The republicans shouldn’t think that they’ve won a lasting victory. It could well be a “one-off.” The R’s already have been crowing that they’ll take back Congress in a Red Wave next year. They should be a little more humble. The D’s are street fighters, lacking in morality, as shown in their stealing of the 2020 election (which Pat refuses to recognize). They’ll do it again if they can.

    Will the R’s do enough to stop the steal in the mid-terms? I have my doubts. What have the Red States done to eliminate the fraud of mass mail-in voting? With their irrational exuberance over their Virginia win, thinking it will propel them to victory elsewhere, they could just as well wind up with egg on their face.

Another fine article by Pat; Joe Biden is Jimmy Carter 2.0; the Stagflation international impotence are just the same; unlike Carter Biden will not run for re-election; who knows what other dumb ideas Biden will come up with; 450,000 dollar checks for illegal immigrants?

    Pat, I think you put the double quotes here are on the wrong word, let me fix it for you:

    However, an even larger number of “voters” were saying, enough.

    As moderate Democrats, desperate to halt the progress of Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primaries, had voted for Biden to prevent a socialist from winning their nomination, voters who wanted an end to the Trump era cast their votes for the other name on the ballot, which was also Biden.

    Ironically, Bernie might have won without all the extra “votes” that had to be found in the middle of the night.

    It’s too early to tell whether VA portends what is to come in 2022 and 2024. I live in the PNW and A D just beat a prominent conservative King County council member. Admittedly the conservative had conducted a horrible campaign, but she was already looking weak in the primaries winning only 40% of votes with the remaining 60% split between two progressive Democrats. The conservative candidate sent out a flyer calling the D candidate a “socialist” for wanting to defund the police, and tied her to Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and two other liberal socialist members on the Seattle city council. Ironically that might have helped the Democrat.

    The problem with the GOP is, the left has done such a good job painting all conservative views as hate, bigotry, xenophobia or privileged that they have no more room to retreat to except to paint all liberal views as “socialism”. But the younger set especially the college educated with useless libart degrees who are toiling away at low wage jobs are actually big supporters of socialism. Years of misguided education has created such a cognitive dissonance in them that they could no longer figure out that support for open borders leads directly to increased labor supply which suppresses wages. They want everyone to come into America, and for America to pay for everything for everyone, all paid for by taxing the 1% who are primarily white male.

    If the GOP continues to blindly and stupidly cling to “socialism”, guns and abortion in 2022 and beyond, they will continue to lose every election. Socialism is in now with the young, single and divorced, wake up! Focusing on parents to take back education may work in more hotly contested states, but in states where liberalism is entrenched like the West coast, that might actually help the Ds as most younger parents are so stupid they are all caught up in the CRT, DEI, transmania and think it’s actually good for their kids.

    Let me rephrase that. I didn’t mean these younger parents are stupid, but rather they are either so brainwashed/misguided or beaten into submission that they equate being against CRT, DEI, transgenderism, illegal immigration, white privilege, defund the police, tax “the rich” and all those increasingly extreme left wing initiatives to being a bigot, hater or xenophobe.

    As a testament to my statement regarding popularity of socialism, WA state has a voter initiative to repeal a 7% capital gains tax imposed by our one party state (not hard to guess which party) on the November ballot. The votes separating “Repeal” and “Maintain” are now within 1% point.

    The Fed’s over stimulation of the economy through endless QE especially since the start of the pandemic has accelerated this support for socialism. Many people lost their jobs because of Covid, but we all got to witness the stock market going through the roof with frequent reports of how much richer the richest 0.01% got. Billionaires like Musk, Bezos, Gates basically doubled and tripled their wealth during the pandemic thanks to the Fed’s loose monetary policy. People are upset. Eff the rich is now a popular sentiment. Of course the people who will be hurt the most are not the 0.1% who can just move out of state easily or so rich they simply don’t care, but those between the 90%-99.9%, many of whom probably rely on capital gains to fund their retirement.

    Regardless of the reasons, the result shows that attacking the left’s ideas as socialism will be a failed strategy for the GOP, they need to stay away from that label, because it is actually now seen as a plus by many below the 95%. And calling it “communism” will just make them sound hysterical and desperate.

    Mr Buchanan, the only reason the Bidenistas failed at this election was that they were intelligent enough to realise that if they fraudulently fixed the vote, the Biden vs Trump myth would be irrevocably damaged.

    Biden won the Presidential election fraudulently, there is no doubt about this when the facts are examined.

    Facts, however, never trump ideology, as has been proven by the Covid scam.

    But many Jews don’t see themselves as White. Whether that’s just for convenience’s sake or not, I’ll let you decide.

    Jews belong to the White race, they are a different ethnicity…not a different race.

    Jews shouldn’t be regarded as just another ethnicity. They don’t see themselves that way. Greasy Italians and Dumb Poles are ethnics in the Jewish view. Jews regard themselves as a Chosenicity. They are Choseniks, which puts them above all mere ethnic groups and races.

    Anyway, the assumption among many on the ‘right’ is that diversity is automatically bad for GOP and whites. While it’s true that too many non-whites will lead to the erasure of a white nation, diversity need not be anti-white or anti-GOP.

    It all depends on how it is used and by whom. Most non-white goyim are like white goyim: Sheeple, easily manipulated. In the West, they are manipulated to be anti-white by Jews.

    Iran is only 50% Persian and the rest are of other ethnicities. But, despite the ethnic tensions within Iran, most minority groups don’t work with Jews against Persians. Why not? Because Persian nationalists control Iran. Russia has many minority ethnic groups, but Russia’s diversity don’t work with Jews against Russia. Why not? Russians dominate Russia.

    If anything, during the Cold War when the USSR sided with certain Arab nations against Zionism, all groups within the Russian Empire was manipulated and pressured to support Arabs against Zion.

    If whites hadn’t ceded power to Jews in the US(and UK and the West), they could have put forth a much more white-friendly agenda and value system for non-whites. As most non-whites can’t or don’t think for themselves, they will just go with the prevailing wind. It is because whites ceded power to Jews that the latter made anti-whiteness the glue, especially as ideology faded in significance as the ‘End of History’ drew near.
    Something similar happened in China. As communist ideology mattered less and less, CCP figured it had to rely on something to hold the people together as one big patriotic family. And it was anti-Japanese-ness. History was dredged up to make Japan the Big Bad Wolf. (It was probably a stupid move as it alienated Japan and drew it closer to the US.) CCP figured anti-Japanese would be the glue that would hold China together. Jews figure anti-whiteness will hold the diversity groups together. Blame whitey for everything. Even in areas where Jews dominate, blame whites, e.g. #HollywoodSoWhite. Even when Jewish mayors of blue cities pushed for tougher policing to control black crime, black ‘white racist cops’ for dead blacks like George Floyd(who actually died of Fentanyl overdose).

    Blaming diversity is like blaming trannies. Most non-whites are clueless sheeple. Their anti-whiteness has been fed to them by Jews. Trannies on their own would have no power. They were empowered and ‘ennobled’ by Jews.

    Conzo criticism amounts to attacking the puppets but never tracing the strings back to the puppet master. It is Jewish Power.
    Diversity and Trannies are no different from Biden. All puppets of the Power.

    There is something to be learned from Ukraine. Jews sought to use Ukraine against Russia, and so, Russia decided to use Ukraine against the Jews. Jews installed a puppet government that provokes Russia, but Russia took back Crimea and supports the separatist elements in eastern Ukraine.

    Diversity must be used like Ukraine is used by Russia. If Jews steer diversity to be anti-white, whites must steer diversity to be anti-Jewish. Just tell the nonwhites that Jews hog most of the power and privilege in the West. Detail all the dark elements of Jewish History and teach every group how Jewish power and money went a long way to hurt them. Jews and slavery in Brazil. Jewish sale of opium to China. Jews use of pentagon to destroy Arab nations. Role of Jewish financiers in rape of entire economies. When Jews use diversity to attack whiteness, whites must fight back in kind.

    But whites are cucky wucks and a bunch of pussies.

Once again voters in this country were faced with having to support Candidate “LOTE” (“lesser of two evils”). We saw it in 2016 and we have seen it again four years later, and as a consequence once again the alleged “winning” party got the wrong message. This country is in dire need of a multi-party system but so long as two political parties monopolize the system and apply what amounts to a stranglehold on any emerging third party we will see this sort of thing play out again and again.

    My state was fairly close, with Biden winning. Our state election audit board (bi-partisan) recently concluded that they estimate at least 225,000 democrat ballots were suspect. Unsealed envelopes, not signed, not stamped by election officials, etc. And it gets worse. One very liberal large city in our state refused to even participate in the audit, so add another 75k to that number. Needless to say, this news did not get one second of coverage on local mass media except conservative talk radio.

    Jews do not consider themselves a separate race.

    Yes they do though ‘race’ is not the term they might use.

    They consider themselves a CERTAIN PEOPLE, a special tribe.

    Yeltsin was too drunk to know or care what Jewish Globalists were doing to Russia, and Biden is too senile is to know or care what his Jewish handlers are doing to America.

    But then, it’s to the personal advantage of goy shills to play along and turn a blind eye because they are taken of by their masters.

    the fact that gentiles allow control by Jews shows a lesser intelligence in many gentiles.

    Look around you. Look at the masks and vaccine passports. 90% of people accept any type of “control” by whoever has authority over them. Many of them pretty high IQ. No matter.

    It’s not about “intelligence”, otherwise, it would be East Asians ruling. It’s just that a lot of Jews are in the elite, overrepresented there. Now, I’ll admit that, on average, there are probably more dumber whites than dumber Jews. But not on absolute numbers. Jews are just fine-tuned to infiltrate and take control. Also, they are good at creating ideologies and hypnotizing people.

    Jews: “We are smarter than goys, believe it goy”.
    Dumb ‘Realist’: “Yeah, they are smarter than us, they deserve to rule us. IQ is everything”.

    Sepphardic Jews are not, in fact, genetically “white” / European.

    Ashkenazi Jews are typically 40-60% genetically white European, most of all Italian (and to a much lesser extent Germanic or Slavic). See, e.g., a Jon Entine column from Genetic Literacy Project about genetic tests on Ashkenazim.

    So for better or worse or indifferent, Sepphardic Jews are indeed genetically a different race from europeans. Ashkenazi Jews are partly our race and partly not.

    McAullife actually used to be more conservative on preserving confederate statues than Youngkin. During his first campaign McAullife said he opposed the removal of confederate statues while Youngkin is on record as supporting their removal.

    Youngkin’s victory is a rebuke of Biden and the radical left agenda but nobody should be under the illusion that he’s Pat Buchanan circa 1996. If Youngkin was governor in 2017 he would have condemned the UtR rally as aggressively as the radical left did.

    As a guy who is 79 and still has to work for a living – I was an ardent Bernie supporter – but I held my nose and voted for Biden, because he claimed that he was in favor of increasing the federal minimum wage up from \$7.25/hr. – the Clinton Establishment killed that in a hurry (Oh Please! – the Senate Parliamentarian “ate” your homework!).

    Jews belong to the White race, they are a different ethnicity…not a different race.

  45. You know how we’d know if these sheeple parents / Republican voters have really “seceded” from this authoritarian regime?

    If these sheeple parents would rise up and throw out their school boards, their principals, their superintendents … and withdraw their kids from government school wherever they are unable to do this. Homeschooling, private school in person, private school online, anything but the government schools with their indoctrination, regimentation, dumbed-down curriculum, nowadays injection mandates and mask mandates, and sometimes lack of safety peace and order.

    Defeating McAulifffe is great, even though they put yet another rich bankster tool in office instead. But what else?

    What does the gubernatorial election matter if these voters don’t withdraw their precious children from these government indoctrination / regimentation centers?

    What does the gubernatorial election matter if they keep giving thousands of dollars per year to cable/satellite TV “providers” who manipulate public opinion contrary to our interests, rights, and values?

    What does the gubernatorial election matter when the voters mostly go back to worshipping dimwit athletes — yeah, National Felons League and college football, ‘Merica! — instead of spending time with their families / helping local people who need food or shelter or counseling / reading / exercising / improving their community / fighting to repeal government oppression etc.?

    Let’s see them make plans to withdraw their kids from government schools in any district where they are unable to rout the perverts, midwits, anti-white bigots, and America-haters from the local government school. Let’s see them cancel their TV “Service.” Let’s see them spend more hours per month with their family — NO TV — and helping people in their town than they do worshipping college and pro athletes.

    There’s something to the notion that Youngkin was allowed to win in part because it pacifies normal Americans and gives them the false impression that something big has changed in their favor. We’ll see.

  46. @Reactive Reaction

    You’re right. Yes, they’re still usually half or more genetically Jewish, just not nearly as much as many Jews like to think or non-Jews might think.

    One of my closer friends is unusual in that he has one Sepphardic parent and one Ashkenazi parent. My friend looks mostly like a white European guy, while his brother looks more like a Semite. He calls his brother “the Arab one”, which the brother doesn’t find quite so funny.

  47. @Dr. Charles Fhandrich

    YES. But it won’t mean much if these same voters don’t now fight to replace their government-school superintendents, principals, and school-board members — then refuse to follow anything in the state curriculum that offends their values and get rid of teachers who try to brainwash their kids.

    And in every district where that effort fails or is not realistic in the first place, these Youngkin voters need to WITHDRAW THEIR KIDS FROM THE DAMN GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS ALREADY.

    Online private schooling can be far cheaper than private schools that have a big physical campus to pay for. Alternately, homeschooling can be done through a combination of online courses and in-person lessons (e.g., from neighbors or other homeschooling parents who are retired or former teachers).

    Elections won’t matter much if the voters keep consigning their children to be utterly confused and brainwashed and regimented by the government schools. GET THE KIDS OUT OF THERE IF YOU REALLY CARE about liberty and your children’s minds. Don’t vote Youngkin and think that you’ve done much.

    Great post. Parents need to act, now on, as if the administrations of these schools are trying to molest their kids, because what they are doing is the equivalent. Sure these clowns are going to continue in the same way. They will never stop, being an arm of the democratic party and a powerful one.

    .I especially agree with the thought that parents need to pull their kids out of public schools, This is the logical next step in answering the education asses, and I don’t mean the teachers. The teachers are teaching what those in control of them want them to teach. Great post, in my opinion.

    Good point made.

    The “electorate” was 100% out of the game with:

    Gerrymandering
    Lobbying
    The purchasing of candidacy – not a millionaire? no chance for you running, regardless of tit size, no less.

    Power and money – and too much free time on your hands. What in the hell does that have to do with the ordinary Joe?

    All three are obviously how you got the DC you got – but not because you specifically asked for it. That came about by the office holders – not you. Like a wet snowball rolling down a hill, it went exponential from there. Those are just three primary ways (of many more) the electorate lost any input.

    It’s important to remember that when they set up this form of government, none of those things were even known or imagined. And it’s useful to remember, that biologic females were shut up in a house, busy all day cooking delicious meals from scratch and raising children on their own, and arrested for prostitution if just their ankles were visible in public.

    Fast forward to today. Ever look at a map of congressional districts? How in anybody’s wildest imagination does that map describe anything near one man – one vote, in a multicultural country? Tell me how! How many lobbyists have you ever voted for, Mr “Electorate?” And you poor lazy souls, C- average in junior high, raised to kick a football around in a school yard, and capable of only a menial job earning peanuts (now 3rd generation of that) going to “buy” your way into candidacy? I mean, How?

    And finally, 100 years ago, the biologic female got to vote – that wasn’t even imagined in the late 18th century. So, today, there are so many females running for office, duded up like whores, and men doing what they’ve always been inclined to do…vote for her and maybe to thank me she’ll drop by and do a lap dance for me. And on top of that – now, blowing your way to “CEO” or into high office? And barely a peep from anybody?

    Come to think of it…you saps got what you asked for, all right.

    I haven’t voted in almost 40 years. Why? Because I was born with a pretty good bowlshit detector.

  54. In the end, implicit politics will lose to explicit politics.

    At most, Youngbungdongkin represents implicit white politics. In contrast, the other side run by Jews and animated by blacks(and homos) is explicit in their pride and passion, in its diatribes and demands.

    What is the difference between ‘implicity’ and ‘explicity’? Implicit politics is ashamed to express and expound on what it’s about. It must hide its identity and interests, even to itself, i.e. so many whites who vote for white interests want to make themselves believe they are voting for universal principles of color-blindness. So, even though implicit politics may win a few rounds, it loses in the long run because it without the fuel to proudly express and defend itself and go on the war path against enemies and rivals. Implicit = Timid.

    In contrast, explicit politics is all about pride, confidence, passion, and aggression. It is fired up. Even if outnumbered and disadvantaged(at the moment), it has the wind of history on its back because it has the moral and ‘spiritual’ upper-hand. It can preach loudly and morally condemn the other side that is too afraid to express itself loudly and make effective counter-arguments. Explicit = Brash.

    Implicit politics, even when victorious, is ashamed of itself and dare not openly express what it’s really about. If anything, it outwardly agrees, more or less, with the moral argument of the other side, the enemies and rivals, and claims to be practicing those ‘virtues’ better in moderation and caution. It doesn’t oppose the arguments and demands of the other side but merely says it is too radical… at least at the moment. So, when it comes to fundamentals, the implicitly political side hides its real interests and claims to, more or less, agree with the premise of the other side. So, craven shitters like Youngbungdongkin don’t condemn CRT or call out the lie of BLM but merely mutter, “oh gosh, you’re pushing the stuff too far too fast, and we need some breathing space, that’s all”, and his voters are too craven and chicken to express true outrage over what Jews and blacks have done to this country since 2020.

    Jews are 2% of US whereas white Christian goyim outnumber them many times. But why do Jews keep winning while whites and Christians keep losing? It’s because Jews control the gods, what is holy and unholy, and that means they can be EXPLICIT in their Jewish identity, pride, agenda, and demands… whereas whites and Christians, tagged with sins of ‘racism’, ‘antisemitism’, and ‘white supremacism’, must always tread carefully and at best be implicit in their defense of whiteness or Christianity. Jews treat Jewishness as an iron hammer whereas whites/Christians handle whiteness and Christianity as radioactive material; they are afraid of their own identity and interests, of their own shadows.

    It’s like implicit capitalism under communism. Even under Marxism-Leninism, some nations experimented with market economics and introduced elements of capitalism. But the capitalism in communist nations could only be implicit. It couldn’t loudly and proudly proclaim itself as superior to communism. Rather, all it could hope for was some degree of tolerance and permission to carry on with market practices to allow for incentives and efficiency. Because communism owned the pride and passion, it could stamp out vestiges of capitalism any time it wished. Implicit capitalism was always at the mercy of explicit communism.

    Unless whiteness is made explicit in its identity, interests, expression, and demands, it will always be disadvantaged and lose out in the long run because the pride and passion are with explicit politics.

    It’s like a handful of burning coals produces more power than a ton of cold coals.
    And a few men with swords are more dangerous than many people with only shields.

    When a roller meets the dough, what flattens what?

  58. Cking says:

    Fraud was engineered and planned years before the 2020 Election, in legislative laws that expanded the use of, and loosened up the circumstances and requirements of Mail-in Ballots; and those rules and regs were not followed. Covid was enlisted as a pretext that facilitated voter and/or Election Fraud. The MSM was/is working hand in glove with the Democratic Party’s Administration. Otherwise we’d know more of Hunter’s schemes that would have dirtied Joe himself. Suspicious software deployed by Voter Systems Computer Corporations were not to be impugned. 81 million Americans did not vote for the Democratic Administration. Dead people did. And those who did, Pat Buchannan is right, did not vote to stop the Wall from being completed, did not vote for expanding Covid Madness Mandates, high unemployment, Woke pogroms, Garland’s Gulag, vaxx coercion and passports, 4 or 5 boosters, into 2023, etc. The crisis today was triggered by the duplicitous Congress who misrepresented the will of the people, the Electoral Vote.

  59. Buchanan tries to read too much into these election results. It’s just a temporary reprieve for one small part of the country. It’s the same with the 4th Federal Circuit Court putting a temporary stay on Brandon’s OSHA mandates. You can be assured that the globohomos are at least two chess moves ahead on this. Soon they’ll have yet another hyphenated American, Seema Nanda, arguing the case and overturning the stay. I’m sure she’ll be secretly delighted having the power to put down Mr. white man and his anti-social ways.

    Between my bouts of abject depression, I truly see no other way out of this than armed insurrection. But since I’m in no position to plan or engage in any such thing, I’m just another keyboard warrior crying in the wilderness.

    Our neighborhood, near downtown Los Angeles, consistently votes 70-plus percent for Dems. We’ve lived in several buildings in downtown and adjacent; at every election, especially in the past year, there are DOZENS and DOZENS of mail-in ballots that the mailman simply leaves lying out on ledges in the mailroom.

    In other words, the post office personnel are deliberately, and illegally, leaving people’s mail unprotected. With mail-in ballots, the bonus is that they know that unscrupulous people will find at least some of those ballots and fill them out.

    My wife and I would like to gather these illegally strewn ballots and return them to the county election office. The people do not live there and the ballots have been haphazardly strewn about in public, not placed in mailboxes. But we are afraid that they would somehow find a way to harass or even prosecute US for trying to prevent further vote fraud.

    Yes, we are leaving LA.
