Just one year out from the great win which brought us the First Fungal President, Democrats got shellacked by voters.
Virginia, presumed permanently flipped blue, revolted, turning the top of the state government as Republican as possible.
And all we have been subjected to in the past few days has been the hilarious sight of Democrats lighting their hair on fire decrying the black daughter of a Jamaican immigrant as the new face of white nationalism.
Watching them strut around last November, it was obvious to me the Democrats would take all the wrong lessons from their ‘revolution’ against the demon Trump.
And they are about to do it again in 2021.
They took the worst coattails in history as a sign from the gods in Davos to remake the U.S. into the bastard step-son of a sclerotic and dysfunctional European Union, with all the capital destruction, ritualistic humiliations and artless propaganda that implies.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the Politburo. They they mistook fatigue with the sitting President as affirmation of the most radical parts of their agenda.
You would think they would have learned their lesson after 2010’s blow out? But, as Dexter White pointed out recently, with commies, dumb ideas never die, they are just put off until the next legislative session.
A Donut Hole Inside a Donut Hole
And the reason is these people don’t set policy. They implement it. The policy is the goal and until the heads of the bureaucracy which creates it are burned out, they will keep growing back to try again.
There is no real discussion about the final product. The argument is only over how best to present it. Last year I called it MOPP – Management of Perspective Politics .
And if there’s been one great political lesson for all the worldly Millennials now organizing for the mid-terms in 2021 it is this: no one ever went broke underestimating the truculence of American voters. After all, it’s how y’all tell yourselves you swept the board last year.
That said, however, I do truly believe there is a fundamental hole at the center of the Democrats’ (and Davos’) strategy.
In short, the Democrats don’t stand for anything but rather are simply another victims support group.
That’s where the hole in their minds resides, when you then try to stand for something, in this case global communism run by Eurocrats from Brussels, you have no clear messaging as to what you want to achieve, other than, “burn the heretics at the stake!”. And that doesn’t really play well without looking completely insane to everyone who isn’t a “purple-haired cat lady on a cocktail of antidepressants ranting about white supremacy.”
… The Progressives thought they had this locked up because DNC leadership was given their marching orders from Davos which was their agenda all along. All each group had to do was virtue signal to their aggrieved supporters and the two factions would Straussian Two-Step (Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis) their way to victory….
But, in reality they have nothing locked up because most of the country doesn’t dye their hair purple before setting it on fire for like on Tik-Tok.
And when you implement policy at the local level which is abhorrent to most people’s basic humanity, eventually they do something about it. This time it was the Loudon County school board and Attorney General Merrick Garland’s trying to brand parents as “domestic terrorists” that sealed their fate on Tuesday.
We have these quaint ideas in most of this country that local government officials work for us, not the other way around. We should be forgiven if we have become inured to the corruption at the center of our political world – D.C.
But when the policy trickles down to the schools you pay truly outrageous taxes to send your kids to, that’s when the old adage that ‘all politics is local’ becomes real again.
They mistook their “win” in 2020 as a mandate to go all-in on the crazy. And it backfired on them badly on Tuesday.
But don’t think for a second that Obama and Davos weren’t the ones pushing this to its crisis point. But, they’re so consumed with implementing their coup from the top down they missed the chaos they unleashed at the local level.
These people just think that if they make laws they create reality.
They live in an echo chamber so small that they think the pain in their neck is not from having their heads up their asses.
No wonder they couldn’t understand why “Let’s Go Brandon” is so friggin’ funny.
I believe when they put these plans on the white board they thought they could control the Critical Race Theory and White Supremacy narrative.
But they really can’t.
Because, chaos is chaos for a reason. It, by definition, cannot be controlled. When you foster it in people to the maximum through 24/7 anxiety pimping on social media they begin to act, well, chaotically.
They do dumb shit like organize a school field trip to a gay bar or strip club, have tranny-stripper reading hour with five-year old kids and create university professors who talk openly during interviews of killing all the white folk.
Years ago Judge Andrew Napolitano called the camera “the new gun.” In 2021 this isn’t a trenchant observation or anything but it bears remembering because we not only capture each other saying and doing the private parts out loud, people willingly turn it on themselves and are shocked (shocked, I say) when there are consequences for it.
Hello Newton? The Dems want your laws back.
And the results are what happened in the 2021 local elections.
Like it or not, Democrats, actions have consequences. Effects follow causes. And redefining terms doesn’t negate little things like math and biology.
Because of their fundamental defects not only in character but cognitive function we will now be treated to the best show on earth in 2022: watching the Democrats double down on the exact strategy that lost them these races in 2021.
Those who have never learned their lessons are now a three-headed hydra of bad ideas getting ready to go even further left.
Our fungal president came back from Glasgow early, presumably because he got lost at the photo op, to double down on his executive order on vaccine mandates and weekly testing for COVID-9/11.
Nasty Nancy still thinks there’s wiggle room to force President Manchin to the bargaining table over the infrastructure bill. I wonder when he’s going to get a Secret Service detail?
The Jimmy Dores, Lizzie Slapahos, Sanderistas and Old Turks are already screeching that they lost because they betrayed their base.
The Karens being thrown off of airplanes because we’re all so thoroughly sick of their hysteria? The only thing based in the following video is the pilot.
Pandering to this demographic and their children will be the end of the party. If they lurch left and double down on the socialism it will prove the adults have left the planning room. I give it better than even odds because that’s literally all they have left.
Right on cue, crisis actor extraordinaire Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fulfills her destiny to breathe fire on the ashes on both Terry McAuliffe and the party she was sent to D.C. to destroy.
“Plus, on the election front, I actually think we have good news as well. I know that Virginia was a huge bummer. And honestly, if anything, I think that the results show the limits of trying to run a fully 100% super moderated campaign that does not excite, speak to or energize a progressive base,”
Teachable Moment in History…
The battle-hardened are sitting in the room today doing triage for the primaries. They know it’s spiraling out of control. Pelosi is desperate to pass any version of the spending bills just to have something to show for the entire session.
But these bills were supposed to be passed before this election debacle. COP26 was supposed to be a triumph for Davos. Biden was sidelined completely. He isn’t going to make it another six months in office.
Manchin can’t cave if he wants to retain his seat. Removing him only makes things worse with a Republican Governor in West Virginia.
They are moving the pieces into place to get rid of Biden but there’s no one in the room capable of taking the reins of the country. Forget Harris, if anything Obama and company are already moving against her.
I told you in August that Davos has other plans for Biden’s successor. Biden was Obama’s choice to be replaced when convenient. I’m still betting on him placing a loyal and politically-inert Janet Yellen in his place.
Getting rid of Biden now does nothing to salve these wounds, it only compounds them since Biden was Obama’s pick, not Hillary’s. If anyone had any illusions of her power within the party, dispel them now. Terry McAuliffe is finally gone. John Durham is tightening the RussiaGate noose around her neck. Even though Obama is implicated heavily in that, since he controls the party now, expect nothing to blow back on him.
The Democrats had no momentum coming into these elections and now the knives are coming out of the woodwork. Once the tempo is gone, politically, it’s nearly impossible to get it back. Building it back better by denying Critical Race Theory and firing all the COVID-9/11 heroes over the clot-shot isn’t a winning strategy.
I expect Obama to allow the party to give the Progressives their head, it’s the fastest way to destroy the country and accelerate us towards the ultimate act of political vandalism. That said don’t underestimate the Republicans’ ability to stand in the fire of the Democrats’ self-immolation.
They never seem to learn anything either.
What has looked a three-headed hydra constantly regenerating bad ideas no matter how many times we try to kill them, is now about to turn into something closer to Moe, Larry and Curly doing an impression of the giant from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Such is the benefit of a failing education system. Hoisted on their own petard, even.

Fungal President!!!! However the VA victory was dampened by the doofus in NJ who was shmekling around and refused to campaign. Ciatttarelli could and should have won the election. But he spent too much time sitting on his toochas so I am told. The Republicans need to overcome inertia and the RINOs (which will claim victory in VA) if they want meaningful outcomes up ahead.
As to that video it may have been staged as that looks as a domestic configuration not normally used for London flights and everything was a bit too perfect.
However in Brazil last week a flight from Curitiba to Belo Horizonte a passenger (equal to me) was not able to put the muzzle over the nostrils. The nasty obnoxious pilot turned around and brought the flight back to the airport. Everyone cheered. Deprogramming will be a challenge. Awful aviation news. Several hundred comments almost all in adulation of that low life pilot.
I’m a 39 y/o man and have lived in Virginia for over 13 years. I would call myself moderate-left, really a libertarian on many issues. If you’d have told me 20 years ago I’d cast a vote for the CEO of the Carlyle Group for governor, I’m sure I would have laughed heartily. But there, I guess, you go. And while I have zero-to-little faith in the new hires themselves, when it was time to fill out my ballot, I just couldn’t fathom the conscience (or the donut hole where it used to be) of McAuliffe, or those around him. The Democrats are openly issuing unlawful, terroristic threats against their OWN PEOPLE (cops, firefighters, teachers, nurses) and they are doing it EVERY DAY. What choice do we have but to oppose these demented monsters? Voting is about one 1000th of what we need to do.
Carlisle Group? Oh no. That means he is CIA. Look for the big betrayal.
Curious why you did not mention the silence of 45 on the VA election. IMHO this silence was crucial..
The Progressives in question are like Jesus: all about forgiveness. They can continue to be like Christ, c.f. climb on top of that cross in preparation for the final nailing …
A lot of wasted words, Luongo. Why? Because, you miss the point, and you do so repeatedly. Nobody lost Jack shit except for the stupid citizens of VA who participated in another sham election that saw a razor thin “victory” for the good cop party.
The UNiparty must be annihilated. All the red county in VA, NC, GA, PA, IL, and all the rest of the states plagued with a parasitic blue metropolis or two, needs to pick up their marbles and leave. They must form new states, or petition to join existing ones, e.g. Pennsyltucky needs to team up with the actual KY or WVA.
Let Chicago, LA, Seattle, Philly, NYC, etc. be their own state. Cut them off and watch them turn into some variation of a League of Shadows beset Gotham. In short order they will collapse and be ripe for re-conquest. At that point you would see this entire globalist shit show truly come a cropper, at least in this part of the world.
Thank you for proving to everyone you have a sense of where the end game lies but no strategic sense of how to achieve that state.
If you don’t think I don’t understand where this leads or where it should lead you haven’t been paying any attention to anything I’ve actually written or said over the past 4+ years.
Of course elections are stupid. Of course they are rigged. Of course these commies will not listen and their power structures torn down… Did you not read the article about all good men going John Galt?
Or are you just an insipid, self-aggrandizing, bloviating douchebag?
What do you think is actually happening right now? People are opting-out of this globalist shit show. Watching the Democrats double down on their lunacy is the best things possible.
But, it’s not going to happen on your time scale. it will happen when it happens. My job is to inform you of where we are in the process and how we best get from here to there.
If that’s not good enough for you, you are free to go somewhere else. But, as it stands I could care less since I get the traffic.
That’s Mr. Douchebag to you, Tommy thin skin. You appear a tad confused. You see, if I were self aggrandizing, I’d have an amateurish weekly podcast with a homemade musical intro that made tinnitus seem preferable by comparison. I’d go on for far too Luoonng about meaningless Republicrat contests.
“Thank you for proving to everyone you have a sense of where the end game lies but no strategic sense of how to achieve that state.”
I didn’t know it was my job to provide “the how” in the comments section. Does that mean you would like me to fill you in? I didn’t think so.
Well look here!
“Of course elections are stupid. Of course they are rigged. Of course these commies will not listen and their power structures torn down… Did you not read the article about all good men going John Galt?”
Did you see how easy that was? I know it’s hard for you, because, among other reasons, if you actually walked the “elections are stupid” talk you wouldn’t put out content that is more about producing revenue than advancing a cause. #UptonSinclair
It s people like you Mr. Douchebag who bring nothing to the conversation but useless cynicism. Elections matter as symbols to a lot of people.
And just because you’re in a state of abject despair and cynicism doesn’t mean everyone else is. Your inability to thinks strategically as to how we get to the point of the process that you described in your initial(and categorically stupid) comment —breaking away etc.— without Davos using that to wipe us out is as much a problem as the idiots who are still scared of CoVid.
That’s not me being thin-skinned. That’s me putting you in your place. So enjoy the show, since the Dems are on the path to self-immolation which will actually advance that process
But whatever dude…you’re clearly too cool for this school.
lol – if Duke had provided us with how to achieve that state, you’d have told him TL;DR.
You seem to presume malice on the part of all that disagree with you, and your standard response is usually to insult them. To that extent, you ARE a bit thin-skinned.
But I can’t fault your willingness to allow such comments to be published. Perhaps you just need a way to politely say “Thanks for taking the time to share your opinion but I disagree in too many areas and don’t have time to rebut them all in detail and so will have to move on, but my readers may enjoy your thoughts so I’ve published them anyway”
As a shorthand, you could simply say “Call Brandolini”?
interesting, apart from the US habit of identifying “Fascism” as “Socialism”. UK crossed into that realm with Tony Blair when he transformed the Labour party from a Socialist inclined party to a full blooded Fascist party, but still kept the “Socialist” tag as a disguise.
Thomas Sowell pointed out that the current political spectrum is just an ivy-league Left-wing academic construct, that was intended to obfuscate more than reveal what is actually going on. But it is hard to unteach oneself, once one learns something as fundamental as that.
A better political spectrum might look something like:
Anarchists -> Libertarians -> Classical Liberals -> Socialists -> Totalitarians
And in the totalitarian group, you find the Communists and the Fascists. While the ideologies are different, for the average person, the regimes are in practice identical. Once you arrive, it won’t matter a jot whether Hitler or Stalin is running your prison.
I found this piece fascinating, about how we arrived at the current Left-Right political spectrum; it was not by the happenstance of reason or common sense:
THE LEFT-RIGHT DICHOTOMY – Thomas Sowell
Tom L. often uses the terms communists and Marxists as descriptors, but I imagine that makes left leaning folks listening to him a bit defensive and less receptive, as those groups are on “their side” of the current political spectrum. And the use of the term fascist will have the reverse effect. And that is precisely the point of the current political spectrum, to keep people divided, according to Sowell.
“Language can harbor a premise with a world view. If you adopt the language, without vetting the premise, you adopt the world view.”
For that reason, I try to always use the word TOTALITARIAN, to sidestep the issue. Until I read Sowell I was using the word communist as liberally as everyone else who is pissed off about what is being done to us.
For what it is worth…
Tolstoy, who wrote in the late 19th century, used the terms Liberals and Conservatives in his books, particularly in his last masterpiece “Resurrection”. The liberal Russians read European economists and philosophers and were familiar with social issues, while the conservatives favored the status quo. The European Enlightenment philosophers of the 18th century were liberal in that they wanted governmental change brought about through reason “L’Age de raison”.. These monikers have been used for centuries. But, it appears that with the 20th century there is more of a pejorative sense in their use IMHO.
…these people don’t set policy. They implement it.
Problem is, the overarching policy they’re striving to implement — like its key components, Climate Change and Covid-19 IFR projections — is based on computer modeling data-sets which are not rooted in the real world, and which are further interpreted by artificial so-called intelligence. Hence the phenomenon of donut holes within donut holes at its center.
BTW, if you want to read something really funny that’s tangentially related to the clip of Karen being escorted from the aeroplane, there’s a comment on Andrei Martyanov’s ‘Open Thread’ post that repeats some Russian gossip about how the hole came to be drilled in Soyuz MS-09, describing in great detail how the “crew with the aunt in the kit” attempted to get ‘Houston’ to prematurely evacuate her from the station.
Machine translation of the original Russian article – (easier than finding the comment on Smoothie’s thread) – can be found here :
Quoting one of the comments under that article:
“You can imagine them flying to Mars with a crew of 50 or more genders . It’s scary to think how such an enterprise can end.”
G7 governments have a LOT in common with the 1970s conglomerates in the USA. They have unbelievably bloated headcount. They have stuck their nose into 1001 industries, 999 of which they don’t understand. They have corrupt unions that want to get paid for making sh!tty products. They have arrogant, expensive leadership that always wants to double down on everything that doesn’t work.
Some conglomerates, like Kodak and Bethlehem Steel, never reformed. They are bankrupt now.
A couple, Government Motors springs to mind, that have had a half dozen taxpayer bailouts and more five year plans than the soviet union.
A few slashed their headcounts by 75%, focused on a few industries they are (supposedly) good at, and stopped pretending to have the answers to everything. This group is still around.
Ultimately, Tuesday’s elections were a rejection of big government. Arrogant Karens trying to run every single aspect of our lives, doing a piss poor job of it, while stealing trillions from future generations.
The US government is going to shrink in the next two decades, whether any of us like it or not. Maybe a more enlightened CEO / President will fire 75% of the headcount and give limited government another shot — it worked really well until Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson decided they knew everything about all subjects.
The only other option is for G7 governments, including Uncle Sam, to go bankrupt. Visit the history section of your favorite bookstore — global “super” powers have gone bankrupt and collapsed… often. Its actually the most likely outcome.
Of course, the mathematically challenged among us will try to argue that a bunch of corrupt 80+ year old “leaders” are going to repay some of the debt they want to issue. That only proves the US education system failed like every other part of big government.
You hit it on the nail by observing the Commiecrats do not make policy they implement it. The real masters of the Commiecrat party are not Americans. They are an uneasy federation of the CCP and Davos. I look for the same strategy of election fraud and continued and mountinhg chaos throughout the country. This may not be a winning strategy but we will continue to suffer for many years if not decades.
I’m a bit surprised to see Pfizer stock shooting up today on news of another “miracle” pill to reduce (but not eliminate) severe covid cases. Haven’t we seen this movie already? Oh yeah, last month Merck had a miracle pill for $700 a pop. Ivermectin is equally effective — arguably its has better efficacy, its definitely better tested and costs 20 cents.
Big pharma was granted blanket immunity from product lawsuits, but it now turns out they were less than honest about glitches in the very limited testing they did. There is extensive legal precedent of politically granted immunity being ruled null and void when disclosures were dishonest.
Remember when the government granted immunity to asbestos manufacturers, and even mandated that all buildings have asbestos shoved into every corner? After the political hysteria died down, how did that those mandates turn out for asbestos manufacturers?
What happens when (not if), most of the country realizes this covid hysteria is exactly like the flu? What happens as more people find out Fauci funded the creation of covid? What happens as more people realize mRNA distributors were extremely dishonest about reporting (limited) testing results?
A supposedly “perfectly safe” and 94% effective vaccine has already been proven to be only 50% effective and it causes myocardial inflammation in some patients. Its not tracked, so we don’t know how prevalent this is — reports show the odds of a young person getting myocardia inlfammation from mRNA shots is about about the odds of getting a symptomatic case of covid (0.5% chance of myocardia versus less than 0.24% chance of covid).
Trial lawyers are going to have a field day taking mRNA creators apart, just like they did to asbestos manufacturers.
Asbestos stocks jumped at first too, and asbestos was far better tested than any covid shot. mRNA is the next asbestos.
As Tom wrote, people never learn the real lessons. Or as Mark Twain wrote, history doesnt (exactly) repeat but it rhymes.
Maybe I’m cynical but I don’t see it. Plausible and logical is the argument but the time in between the commission of the crime and when it’s punished, well let’s say things could happen to sideline the topic. And the whole thing was a staged play, was it not? Expertly done. It’ll need to be covered up don’t you think? How? I shudder to think…
Yeah… political cover-ups always stay covered up. Especially when they are in the news cycle 24/7
And no trial lawyer has ever taken advantage of chaos and confusion for profit
…meanwhile, back on planet Earth…
I suppose I am more cynical. I don’t see a world of law and order existing for long enough that they will indeed be exempt. I think you know it’s about to SHTF.
I very much doubt a power that so ruthlessly broke the people’s civil rights and violently enforced the lockdowns would concede to an election unless the candidates worked for them. We are talking about the World Economic Forum, Horizon 201 and the Great Reset. I don’t trust either party least of all elections when the 2020 elections were stolen
Donald could have won the presidential debates with Joe easily but he threw it, my guess to make it a more establishment-approved 50/50. Then the OWS fiasco, then J&J is one of the worst pharma companies in the world. Now they put him up for 2024. Why? My guess is to galvanize the enemies of freedom while making fun of them to help make sure we don’t make it to the next US election. Prove me wrong, Donald. 6D chess
“Me putting you in your place” Spoken like a true delusional narcissist.
Here’s your “strategic thinking” regarding casting off top down tyranny courtesy of “the state. It’s very sophisticated; very intricate as you’ll see. No doubt the methods were worked out beforehand in a white paper after many hours of brainstorming on the many nettlesome complexities. Not!
All it actually entails is local government doing what it deems appropriate and daring “the state” to do something about it. The state, however, being in an advanced state of moral and physical decay, can’t, even on its best days, really deal with anything but an infinitesimal percentage of the whole saying piss off.
So, here we are, with a fine early warning of the end of business as usual. Call it the beginning of defacto secession. CA has long seemed like an excellent candidate to become numerous Californias. I hear western Oregon has a few counties exploring going their own way as well except in a dejure fashion. Excelsior!
This is a cute statement by these people and I applaud them heartily, but it means nothing in the realpolitik of the world.
Seriously, do you think this means anything in real terms? Again, I’m happy to support these people but the reality is the way people vote is still an important INDICATOR of where we are headed… and if our leadership is clueless and tone deaf to what we are saying then that is worth discussing because only then will it have real world consequences when the majority of people begin acting like these folks in Oroville.
Elections don’t matter from a policy perspective… they matter from an energy perspective. Folks like you are so focused on just getting to end game and ‘chuckling in collapsitarian’ that you miss the bigger picture completely in your own egoism.
None of what you are saying is wrong or do I disagree with, only the strategic sense of how we get to the point where this statement by a city commission actually MEANS A GODDAMN THING.
It is because of this kind of lack of being willing to lead people through the process that leaves both libertarians and ‘alt-right’ conservatives on the fringes to be ignored.
You don’t have any solutions other than saying, “Fuck it.” I fucked off for a decade man, before I started doing this. It got us nowhere.
If you don’t think I’m doing it right, as I told Ivordeacon, you are free to start your own blog and show us all how it’s done.
Otherwise, coming in here and sniping at me is just piggy backing on my hard work to make yourself feel good… and frankly, I’m sick of folks like you.
I see it everyday in the ZH comment threads… it hasn’t changed in 10 years. Davos is laughing at you.
Question. How do the democrats install someone other than Kamala as president?
Even the possibility is rather difficult to conceive. The execution of which, must needs a sci-fi mindset. For we’re in new territory now. I’m sure it will be easier to understand as history rather than pre-history.
Where are the Billy goats Gruff when you need’em?
Not only does the Fauci-Wuhan virus know not to infect people at Antifa rallies, BLM rallies and Obama bday parties, it now turns out the virus also does not effect truck drivers… this from the “medical experts” spouting something they claim is science. Fauci-Wuhan disease does effect crowds at Trump rallies and for that matter any Republican rally.
The corrupt bureaucrats at CDC don’t understand how common folk managed to see through this fraud.
Truckers can’t get Fauci-Wuhan disease because Biden knows he will be rightfully blamed for xmas getting canceled as xmas presents sit undelivered at Long Beach port and in thousands of warehouses all over the country.
How does Fauci-Wuhan disease know if you are a left winger or a right winger? Is there any scientific basis for this obvious lie? Do the folks at CDC expect to have a shred of credibility?
Think about that REALLY hard, enough to burn calories and keep yourself warm this winter. Biden wants to shut down another US pipeline while begging the Saudis to sell oil. Somehow, Biden destroying the US energy industry is Putin’s fault, because you really have to be clinically stupid to believe anything the democrats say.
