Realist, not conformist analysis of the latest financial, business and political news

About That Election Silver Lining, Part 2

From Esteban:

So, in addition to losing the White House Republicans lost control of the Senate. But there is a bright side, we are told. For example, Scott Walker, the former Governor of Wisconsin, recently authored a piece explaining why Conservatives are well positioned for the future. True, historically, the party that wins the White House loses seats in Congress 2 years later – especially when the losing side is really pissed and when the winners over-reach. So, Republicans should come roaring back, it’ll be YUGE!

To quote Samuel L. Jackson from Pulp Fiction “allow me to retort”. I fear Conservatives are about as well positioned as General Custer. First, in the Senate, Republicans are defending 20 seats, Democrats only 14. And the Republicans have at least 3 retirements, which reduce the odds of holding the seat. But this is the small part.

Second, the Republican party is bitterly divided. President Trump was beloved by a lot of people – he was genuinely patriotic, that is, he loved America and thought it was the greatest nation on Earth. He also delivered the greatest economy in history that benefited people of all races and especially the middle and lower classes. Many of these people feel betrayed by the party that failed to prevent massive voter fraud and then failed to fight to correct it. To add insult to injury, some GOP Representatives voted in favor of impeachment. Kiss a lot of votes goodbye.

Third, a lot of Conservatives believe there is no point in voting. When Democrats are caught on videotape telling everyone to go home, we’re done counting votes tonight, then lock the doors and pull suitcases full of ballots out from under tables and run them through the machines over and over and get away with it – umm, why am I going to bother to vote? Just so they need an extra suitcase?

And, finally, the Democrats will spend the next 2 years making all the voting “irregularities” permanent. Mail-in voting, no ID check, same day registration and voting, ballot harvesting, that’s just for starters. Wait until they legalize 11 million (or more) illegal aliens. And the people getting permanent unemployment checks and college debt forgiveness, loyal voters for sure.

As a teenager I read a lot of comic books and one thing that struck me was the unevenness of the struggle. Batman and Robin would prevail against the Joker (or Riddler, or Penguin, etc.) and send him to prison. But, being a Super Villain, he would eventually escape. Every time he lost, it was back to prison, but if Batman & Robin ever lost, it was death. So it is, in the struggle against Leftists – once they seize control, good luck ever getting freedom back.

I believe President Trump deservedly won a massive reelection victory, but the Democrats cleverly took advantage of every opportunity presented by the Kung Flu, Democrat judges and election workers who were willing to do anything to get rid of him. Republicans dropped the ball initially and then didn’t step up and fight. Perhaps they couldn’t have salvaged the election, judges (at least Conservative ones) are loath to be seen as reversing elections, but their failure to try will lead to failure for a long time to come. Despair is a sin I am told, but I cannot see any other path. Perhaps we will move slowly to California and never all the way to Venezuela, I am at least that much of an optimist.

Wow. I didn’t know real people actually believe that. I’m no Biden fan btw but you’ve got to be kidding me if you think Trump actually won that election by a landslide.

Democrats did win – with nothing but ridicule – and Mister Gaslight here, like other Democrats – defends the victory with nothing but ridicule – and prepares to squander any mandate with a Senate trial against Trump for holding a pep rally, which is the same thing as fomenting civil war. This would remove Trump from office (meaningless) and disqualify him from the 2024 election (the Democrats’ highest national priority?) – Seriously?

Sorry – are you trying to tell me you believe there was a massive election fraud and that Trump actually won the election by a landslide? Do you actually believe that? Honest question. I’m a Trump fan btw – well not exactly a fan but I supported many of the things he tried to do. But……

The use of the word “massive” is a mistake. Massive irregularities, maybe. However, shenanigans in 4 or 5 precincts in Democrat cities could have an enormous impact on how a few states swung.

Doesn’t matter if the election was stolen by one vote or a million votes (like Mayor Daley using the graveyards to steal the election from Nixon in 1960). The actual “margin of victory” (i.e. extent of the cheating) only ever needed to be small, the critical part was that it happened in the right places, at the right time and without oversight from Republicans or election observers. Which is exactly what happened with the Biden spike in November 2020.

In another of Tim’s forums I ran through the numbers. Only a total of 40,000 votes across the battleground states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin swung the election. Plenty of unusual voting patterns in all of those states. All you would need is a couple of corrupt precincts in those states to make the difference. They were all states Trump won in 2016.

1 the best candidate the Dems could agree on was Joe Biden, who can draw maybe 100 to his inaugeration. Hardly popular. 2 the only campaigning issue they could agree on was “Orange Man Bad”. They won’t be able to govern on that, as they start doing things they will piss off sections of their support. And by support I don’t just mean voters, also their financial backers, campaign staff etc. 3 Mr. T has demonstrated that there is a large army of peasants out there and willing to fight, though on its own unable to beat a united establishment.… Read more »

Damifino Esteban.

But I’d have to agree that the Dems’ harping on bi-partisanship, continually trying to make the Reps responsible for everything, is certainly an excellent way to split the Republicans. The slim Democratic majority, especially in the Senate, means they can blame the Republicans for every law that does or doesn’t go through, so whatever happens, the Reps are guilty.

When Trump draws an unprecedented 20% of the African-American vote but Zuckerberg plows millions into public-service get-out-the-vote campaigns (in central city districts only), Trump loses every precinct and does not make it up on quantity.

Set against the Democrats’ lack of saleable agenda I mention above, a lot of Republicans like Romney want to be free of Trump’s embarrassing America First mantra, and get back to the real business: pandering to foreign climate negotiators and winning the approval of CNN anchors.

Politicians are not especially bright and invariably sleezy. They piss people off regularly. Look where the Dems were after the 2008 election vs 2016 when the the entire federal government and most of the states were in the Republicans’ hands. The Dems fell a long way. Look at where the Republicans are now. They too fell a long way, but perhaps not quite as far as they did fairly well at the state level. Yes, the Dems see California or Illinois as a model for the nation. They believe deeply in a poorer society that is dependent upon government largess.… Read more »

Republicans did do well in states (and redrawing Congressional districts is on the table) but did well too in the U.S. House behind a President with no agenda for a 2nd term other than manage an outbreak that CNN had declared a crisis. Biden has even less: tax, spend, and nag. Plus self-defining actions, such as on the XL, that will not stop Alberta tar sands from being mined nor oil from being shipped. We will be even sicker of Democrats in 2022 than we were of the Trump lockdown.

Re: Keystone, you are correct that Biden’s action makes no sense – it is worse for the environment, the U.S. and Canada. The oil will be shipped by less safe and environmentally friendly methods. Unfortunately, I think the vast majority of people don’t know this and the media aren’t interested in pointing it out.

I do regret the Keystone business. If there’s one thing the US really doesn’t need to do, it’s to become dependent on the Middle East again.

I agree that if it behaves with reasonable common sense that won’t happen, but see above.

The US will not behave with reasonable common sense. The Cabinet and even the VP were chosen not from sense but because we needed “one of those.” Harming the careers of thousands of student-athletes to pander to dozens of cross-dressers is not sense and not Democratic. The gadflies operating Biden’s arms and legs believe America’s strength is killing the planet. They will make the US a less dependable ally.

What evidence would you see in a stolen election? 1. First-hand eyewitness testimony – check. 2. Film of the steal taking place – check. 3. Statistical abnormalities – check. 4. Peculiar behavior such as stopping the vote counting for no good reason – check. 5. A concerted effort to deny the above – check. The idea that after producing the lowest unemployment rate for generations and a wonderful economy, that people would vote for a demented old man smelling of piss, over Trump is ridiculous. If the events we have seen in the US happened anywhere else, election fraud would… Read more »

Esteban? Is that Spanish for “Tortilla Eating Surrender Monkey”?

In fact, Steven, it is roughly Spanish for Steven.
