Going Into The Mid-Terms

Always remember that well-written words are never mine. Here are some clips from the NON MSM.

Every big U.S. election is interesting, but the coming midterms are fascinating for a reason most commentators forget to mention: The Democrats have no issues. The economy is booming (well the stock market tanked, but it has been over-valued all year) and America’s international position is strong. In foreign affairs, the U.S. has remembered in the nick of time what Machiavelli advised princes five centuries ago: Don’t seek to be loved, seek to be feared.

The left’s only issue is “We hate Trump.” This is an instructive hatred because what the left hates about Donald Trump is precisely what it hates about America.

The contrast with the Obama years must be painful for an honest leftist. For future generations, the Kavanaugh fight will stand as a marker of the Democratic Party’s intellectual bankruptcy, the flashing red light on the dashboard that says “Empty.” The left is beaten.

Mr. Trump is the unconstrained average citizen. Obviously, you can hate some of his major characteristics—the infantile lack of self-control in his Twitter babble, his hitting back like a spiteful child bully—without hating the average American, who has no such tendencies. (Mr. Trump is improving in these two categories.) You might dislike the whole package. I wouldn’t choose him as a friend, nor would he choose me. But what I see on the left is often plain, unconditional hatred of which the hater—God forgive him—is proud. It’s discouraging, even disgusting. And it does mean, I believe, that the Trump-hater truly does hate the average American—male or female, black or white. Often he hates America, too.

                                          ~~~~~~~~~~

I think Trump’s appeal to certain constituents is they had been lectured about, you have to do this, and you must do this and you’ve got to do this. And then they thought to themselves, “The people who are lecturing me in the universities and the federal job swamp, the politicians, they’re never subject to the consequences of their own ideologies.”

"Go out and quiz a history post-grad," he says. "What were the tactics employed at Gettysburg? Who was General Thomas? What was the Anaconda plan? They won't know. Look instead at the titles of their dissertations: The Cuban medical system, the history of footwear, gender in the revolutionary war."

 “I’m a white woman. . . . And my job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt. My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say, ‘Oh no I’m not prejudiced, I’m a Democrat, I’m accepting.’”
— Sally Boynton Brown, erstwhile candidate to head the Democratic National Committee
“These white men, old by the way, are not protecting women. They’re protecting a man who is probably guilty.”
— Joy Behar, cohost, 
The View
“Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins? . . . Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.”
— Sarah Jeong, newly appointed editorial board member, the 
New York Times

The illegal immigration “caravan” now butting up against the Mexican border. Most Americans will shrug that Trump really is right and that a wall will not only keep illegal crossers out, but do so in a way that does not separate families.

  1. I wonder if just pure hatred for Trump is enough of a factor to win an election? Didn’t work two years ago.
    Whatever the outcome of these midterms test assured there will be outrageous reactions.

    I have completely given up trying to figure out the mindset of the left.

  2. Look carefully at the individual faces in the "My People" photo.

    Notice that the majority look at worst neutral and most appear happy.

    Pick a crowd photo from a Hillary or Obama or [insert name of prominent Democrat] rally and the majority will probably look angry. Whassup' with that?

    Jus' sayin'......

    Senator Tom Carper is up for re-election this year - he has run a pretty low key campaign, he has never lost an election in God only knows how many years, he might get surprised Tuesday.

    The only thing Tom did smart during the campaign cycle was to keep his mouth shut during the Kavanaugh hearings most unlike our other Senator Chris Coons who ran his mouth continuously - his most famous remark during the hearings was to claim that it was Kavanaugh's responsibility to prove Ford's accusations to be false rather than the other way around - a brilliant assertion from a uber-liberal attorney who questions Kavanaugh's ability as a jurist.

    1. As Bacall and I travel around, we think we can tell liberals by looking at them. We some times we engage them just to see if we are right. They are not pretty, the women especially. We think being constantly enraged takes a toll on the body.

      This is democracy day, will the uninformed and crazies carry the day?

      Good luck with your races.

  3. Will be interesting to see the results of your midterm election. I don't think the result will surprise me.

    Love,
