Elections 2024

Let me start with the obvious: I did not vote for, nor under any circumstance, would I ever vote for Joe Biden. 

Why? 

Well, Biden edges ever closer to the status of mental vegetable. Out of his depth, confused, physical and cognitive decay glaringly apparent, he cannot utter a complete sentence, and should not continue as President. All that aside, he has no core moral principles. A plagiarist, serial liar, fantasist, borderline pedophile, friend of racists, and a thief of US classified documents--which he hid for some fifty years, and tried to use for a ghost-written book--Biden has proven perhaps the most corrupt person ever to hold the title of President. Of limited intelligence, past years saw him regularly deemed the most stupid member of the Senate, and a renowned bully, he nominally heads a criminal family, which has enriched itself astronomically thanks to the sale of the only product of "Biden Industries," i.e., the Biden name, and, nowadays, almost exclusively for export. The Biden clan have expanded their long-established corruption well-beyond their original pandering to Delaware-based credit card companies and LLC businesses. They now sell "Biden" to the highest bidder, regardless of nationality. Iranians, Ukrainians, Russians, Romanians, Communist Chinese "businessmen," Gulf Arabs, and only God knows who else have poured money into the Biden family coffers--with "ten percent to the Big Guy." Garbled, weak, and self-destructive foreign policies have resulted, wasting the lives of our military and those of our allies. 

Along with his aforementioned lack of moral principles, he has no apparent core political values, and, to the extent that he's aware, allows leftist, race-obsessed mountebanks who seek the destruction of the United States to run domestic policies; we see this in "his" cabinet and judicial appointments, in the insane immigration and border policies "he" pursues, in the DNC rigging of elections--yes, they stole the 2020 election--the use of high-tech and legacy media firms to censor opposition voices; the employment of the legal and intelligence apparatuses to protect the Bidens and surveil and persecute political opponents; and the disconnect from the crime on our streets, and chaos on our borders which "his" administration has produced. "His" spending, energy, immigration, and environmental policies will destroy our economy, culture, and independence. In sum, Biden & Co. have shown themselves enemies of the United States. Period. 

Now, to Trump. The extreme Trump haters can give no solid reason for their hate of him except to repeat garbled accounts of already garbled and untruthful press reports about Trump. They scream, "Fascist! Racist! Putin puppet!" with no evidence that he is any of those. Lacking such evidence, they make it up, e.g., the Steele Dossier, anonymous quotes. We witness a genuine derangement unlike any ever seen before in American politics. I, frankly, fear for his physical safety. The opposition to Trump has become so unhinged, so frustrated with his ability to thwart legal and political moves against him--e.g., fake Russian collusion stories, having him banned from the ballot, ludicrous criminal and civil charges--that I see his life in danger. I hope I am wrong. 

I did not start as a Trump supporter. I admit that I liked Jeb Bush, with whom I had spent some time in Indonesia. He struck me as smart, honest, funny, and a genuinely decent sort. I sighed in frustration when I saw Trump descend the "golden staircase" at Trump Tower to announce his bid for the presidency. I gave him a near zero chance of winning, thinking this a publicity stunt. Despite my father's prediction in the early 2000's that Tump would become President, I saw Trump as a distraction that would split the GOP.  My three sons, however, began to turn me around on Trump. They went to his rallies and came back very impressed; I began to listen to him, instead of about him, and, thought, "Wow! This guy thinks like I do! Hmmmm? Could I have been wrong?" My whole family voted for Trump; an island of red in the deep blue California ocean.

He won the presidency in 2016, despite all the media prognostications that he would not: Bloomberg, for example, gave him zero percent chance of winning; the NYT, more generous, gave him ten percent. The Clinton campaign proved a classic example of arrogance, hubris, and complacency; it laughed off warnings from leftists such as Michael Moore who saw the stirring unrest among blue collar workers set to defy their pro-Clinton union leadership. His win was greeted by leftist violence on the streets, a violence which continued throughout this term in office. The physical violence was followed by an attempted coup via fake stories of Russian collusion, idiotic impeachment trials, and in the end, censorship, and blatant vote rigging in the 2020 elections, all aided by, honestly, some terrible personnel choices made by Washington newcomer Trump. The swamp proved deeper, more dangerous and perfidious than even he had thought. He got conned by many of his supposed allies, e.g., Paul Ryan who delayed and delayed on Obamacare "repeal and replace," and sought to prevent the border wall.

He, above all, got caught in a no-win situation with the advent of the Covid "epidemic." The demand from nearly all quarters, now conveniently forgotten by many of those same quarters, came to shut down Trump's booming economy and superlative military, immigration, and foreign policies! The networks began running death clocks reporting, on the basis of deeply flawed information, an ever-escalating toll of Americans "killed" by Covid. The fraudulent dancing TikTok nurses got hailed as selfless heroes, working with "defective hazmat gear," yet plowing ahead to "save" America. Going to church, Trump rallies, and voting in person became unpatriotic acts posing an intolerable risk to the public welfare. Taking part in BLM/Antifa riots got a pass. We saw the result of the chaos, hysteria and vote cheating in the 2020 elections. Biden allegedly got 81 million votes, more even than the Saintly Obama; Trump "lost" and our current disaster commenced. 

I think Trump has learned his lesson. I have trust that Trump's appointments will be a significant cut above many of those in his first term. I also hope and trust that he will seek revenge on those who sought to destroy him and prevent America from making a come-back. 

Trump was a great president, despite his newbie mistakes, and will be even greater the second time around.

  1. Biden's hate for Israel also. Trump's biggest mistake was the Vaxx I gave him a pass at the beginning but he still touts this shot and says it saved millions. Disappointing

  3. Welcome back, Dip. I doubt that Trump will have the subtle intelligence or backbone necessary to defeat The Swamp, but since nobody else would even try Americans would be foolish to vote for anyone else.

    Like you, I suspect that if the Dems aren't confident of their vote-rigging this time they'll just try to kill him. And blame Putin.

    If, however, he does win office, I wonder whether releasing the last of the secret paperwork on the JFK assassination might do some of his enemies great harm. I'm thinking of the AIC. No, the ICA. No - you know the outfit I mean.

  6. Trump made a lot of rookie mistakes early on, but he started getting things sorted. I suspect his second term in 2021 onwards wold have been very successful.

    One thing he is going to need is an AG who is loyal to the Constitution, then Trump, and who will be absolutely ruthless in cleaning out the DoJ and FBI.

    He's also going to need to fire an awful lot of bureaucrats and hang civil service. He should break the federal worker unions. If they threaten to go on strike, PATCO them and then replace only those who are actually needed.

    And after Obrador's threat last weekend? He will need to be dealt with in a way that will scare the cr** out of him. (As far as I'm concerned, his threat is an act of war)

  7. Trump needs, if he gets back into the White House, to channel his inner Milei. With more than a smidgen of Pinochet thrown in. We need Operation Wetback 2.0 on Steroids. The DemonRats are actively working to destroy America, and are thoroughly embedded throughout government at all levels, media, entertainment...pretty much everywhere. Letting them teach other people's children has been a disaster of Apocalyptic proportions.

  13. I thought I would check one last time before finally giving up hope that you would return. Glad I did.

    From outside I would say that the Biden campaign for presidential re-election is going well - for "The Donald". I hope I am right because the alternative is not good for the US or its allies.

    Are you still around Whitewall and JK?

  20. Biden's social programs are certainly doing more damage to America than the last forty years of 'social programs' combined. That damage isn't quite as clear or immediate as foreign policy wrongheadedness, but it'll hurt us in the long run for sure.
    Can I vote for Biden? Maybe if he changes direction and pulls a massive spend for Israel's war against evil, then.... maybe. I see the more likely scenario as Biden cutting support for Israel as a result of unhinged university attitudes (and I think Biden is extremely susceptible to the whims of such idiots).
    The two things I have a hard time getting over with regards to Trump: I value marriage extremely highly (pretty much death before divorce), I consider the DOHA accords (both the agreement - Trump, and the implementation - Biden) to have been the worst strategic blunder in US foreign policy history.

    Trump is not a racist, he's pretty much not anything anybody in the media accuse him of, because the media doesn't 'accuse' people of things like philandering, it 'congratulates' them on it. Biden is pretty clearly senile, though I'm sure with sudden and large quantities of certain anti-alzheimers medications he can be 'temporarily lucid enough to deliver a speech'


    Fundamentally Biden made his name on opposition to Vietnam... As a result, acknowledging *anything* good coming from the US military would be to reject his entire 'career of success'. He pooped his bed, he now lies in it. We should all stay away.

    I'm not in the tank for Trump... his policies are clearly better than Biden's.. I'm hoping that in 2028 we'll have someone with similar policies to Trump yet also being a more upstanding person.

  21. I dunno... Biden admin just had to cancel a bunch of 'ramadan celebrations' due to their muslim invitees refusing to attend. I mean, if an atheist organization like the biden presidency invited me to a dinner in celebration of Jesus at Christmas, I'd probably show up for the free food.... but it would be pretty duplicitous on their end "oh yeah, we celebrate Jesus, just like we celebrate Mahomet and Buddha and..." You can't really respect any religion by doing that.

    It's a bit like those lefty 'coexist' bumper stickers: "You have no idea how offensive that is to just about every religion listed... just be glad you live in a country founded on Christian principles."
    "We love your religions... all religions are the same to us.. they're great! Celebrate!"

    But that said... you kind of know you're on the right track when a bunch of HAMAS proponents refuse to attend your dinner. Unfortunately I suspect Biden will cave on this.... because being popular on university campuses is a core value to him.
