Hillary Catches the Chill While Debating Our Trump in 2016

SPEAKING OF DRONES

 

by Scott Johnson   at PowerLine:

The tension mounts as we approach the official September 12 publication date of Madam Hillary’s forthcoming campaign memoir, What Happened?. Clinton released what is billed as an exclusive excerpt or two to her friends at MSNBC, where commentators’ eyes were moist with tears of rage on election night.

Reading the excerpts, Clinton reveals that she was unnerved by Trump’s proximity to her during their October 9 debate at Washington University. “He was literally breathing down my neck,” she relates. I think she means “literally” as in “figuratively”

“My skin crawled,” she adds. It was “literally” that bad.

Reviewing the video, I think Trump actually appears to have approached within four feet of her majesty. You can see how this might have disturbed the composure she touted to face the prospective Commander in Chief’s hypothetical 3:00 a.m. phone call when she campaigned against Barack Obama in 2008. As it is, Trump adds to the ordeal she has endured in “a lifetime of difficult men trying to throw [her] off.”

To whom might she be referring? She wouldn’t be anywhere close to where she was without one such difficult man.

Students of ancient history may want to compare Clinton’s nightmare moment with George W. Bush’s close encounter of the fifth kind with Al Gore (also in St. Louis) in the 2000 campaign.

My 65th Year Class Reunion

Tomorrow I shall be attending, God willing, my 65th year class reunion.

I was always an outsider among my classmates, indeed even among people in my neighborhood except adults.   Reviewing my past, I almost always have been  more comfortable alone, an observer, even though I like the human being as a species very much.  Generally,  I consider the human animal a miracle.

I liked adults because they knew so much back then.  I wanted to know what they knew.

I began attending these events at the 25th year class reunion but would stay only for dinner, a habit remindful of my school days.

These, what’s left of us, anyway, are good people.   They had parents.  They didn’t play with LSD, marijuana, or fire.  They went to Church, some even to synagogue when it meant something.   Some still do, I suspect even though the country has lost its way with Sanctuary Cities, 20,000,000 unAmericanized legal/illegal immigrants during the past eight years under the rule of a ‘foreigner’ unAmerican trained in communism and sold socialism illegally…..tearing the country apart.

Life expectancy in America has been dropping….even if we didn’t add in the illegals.  Yet among the grossest of industries, fraud and otherwise, is today’s American health industry.    Last year, at my age of 82,  I paid around $5,000, and the STATE paid at least $75,000 for a knee replacement surgery I wasn’t sure I needed.  It was recommended by responsible, honest, civilized people.  Who was I to argue.  I never had aching knees before, not even when I ran my 32 miles around a high school quarter mile track when in my 50s.

Do we 80 plus year olds  live in a better world today than in the early 1950s?

Well, we are still alive to the joy of some (family,  the living and perhaps the dead, depending on the cult) and the despair of others (Democrats, college trained feminazis and  feminists, black lives matter racist extremists, Somali and other such immigrants, Obamalings, the Putin Stalinists,  Red Chinese industrialists, North Korean ‘socialists’,  CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, PBS, CBS and others who claim to be the  “fair and balanced ” people ordering us how to live in today’s United States of America.

I still work for a living.  I’m lucky.  I love what I do….except yesterday when I had to drive into busy  leftyville, Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Millions of entities, the living and the cars,  bikes, trucks, blockade signs, repairs, buses, professional beggars, politicos dominated public  human life corner after corner, block after block, and the Vikings weren’t even playng  football yet, where at stadiums some millionaires sit on their fannies while  fans stand listening  to modernists gargle or choke while ‘singing’ solo the nation’s National Anthem.

The rest of the country under age 50, especially the fascists from college seem to prefer to  choke on their own noise,  weed, and  opiates,  to be free from knowledge and an ability to differentiate the distance and characteristics  between good and evil.

I often wonder to  what degree  our generation of the mildly privileged, JudeoChristian ‘trained’, civilized middle class contributed to the disorders, the atheism, the undemocratic, unJudeoChristian  vulgarity and violence  of   American behaviors  of our day.   Where did we go wrong?

(I don’t think the topic will arise and be discussed.  We folks were trained to be polite and private.)

 

 

Are Black Lives Matter and Antifa A New Democrat Party Version of The KKK of their old Days?

Suppose BLM and Antifa Are Just Democratic ‘Muscle’ like the Old KKK

by Christopher Chantrill at American Thinker:

“Steve Bannon is saying that the real Trump administration, of populist nationalism, is over. And I suppose it is, given that Bannon is no longer on the inside bashing heads.

Bannon said, as he walked out the door, that he commends the Democrats for starting a race war, because economic nationalism will beat a race war every time.

Bannon’s remarks, made to the NeverTrumpers at Weekly Standard, reminded me why Trump won the Republican nomination and the general election in 2016.

The reason that Donald Trump won the Republican nomination was that he stood up for ordinary Republican voters that liberals routinely name and shame as racists, sexists, and homophobes. That’s why he beat out Ted Cruz (R-TX) and the GOP squishes.

Ordinary middle-class Republicans know that, at any moment, they could be accused of racism by some SJW at work and lose their job. They are afraid; they want a president who will stand up for them.

The reason Donald Trump won the election was that his economic nationalism appealed to the white working class that is dying of despair, abandoned by the Democrats forty years ago. They want a president who will Make America Great Again.

Then came Charlottesville, and Donald Trump showed that he had our back. The problem, he said, is both sides. If President Trump does nothing more in his presidency, he has at least declared left and right extremists equivalent.

But is he right? Is the problem really “both sides?” Or is one side more to blame? When you lay Black Lives Matter and Antifa against Stormfront and the modern KKK, which is the bigger threat to democracy?

I think that the answer depends on which groups deliver “muscle” for their side.

Let’s go back to Reconstruction and the decade of 1865 to 1876. In that era the KKK, according to lefty Eric Foner in his Reconstruction, operated as a guerrilla force making the occupation of the South an expensive proposition for the Union Army and its associated scalawags and carpetbaggers. In 1876 the Republicans gave up on the South; they had bigger fish to fry up north, and so they abandoned the black freedmen to the tender mercies of the Democrats.

In the Jim Crow South, the KKK guerrillas now became the “muscle” for the Democratic Party. And the KKK role, apparently, was not so much to lynch blacks as to intimidate whites who might have a soft spot for the freedmen.

Now, ask yourself: are Stormfront and today’s KKK anyone’s political “muscle” today? Certainly not. For just about anyone on the right they are an embarrassment. We wish they would go away.

Now let us turn to Black Lives Matter and Antifa. Are they marginalized groups that liberals and Democrats are ashamed of? Certainly not. All over my liberal neighborhood in liberal Seattle there are We Believe yard-signs that proudly announce that Black Lives Matter. And just this weekend the New York Times and theWashington Post have written pieces saying there is nothing to see here on leftist violence.

The conclusion is obvious. Black Lives Matter and Antifa are “muscle” groups that perform the same function for today’s Democrats that the KKK performed for the Jim Crow South. They intimidate from Berkeley to Middlebury to Charlottesville, and the ruling class gives them a pass, just as the police and the judges did for the KKK back in the days of the Solid South.

Is their job to “muscle” ordinary middle-class Republicans, or rank-and-file Democrats?

I don’t know. I suspect that the job of the liberal “muscle” groups is to make the utterly marginalized Stormfront and KKK and associated groups into a menace, to justify the escalation of the liberal war on the ordinary Americans that SJWs call racists, sexists, and homophobes.

Otherwise people might get the idea that the job was done 50 years ago when the Civil Rights Acts made it illegal in these United States to discriminate on the basis of race or sex. People might ask: are there no police? Are there no FBIs? Are there no Civil Rights Divisions?

Otherwise people might get the idea that America under the liberal ruling class is a country designed by, for, and on behalf of liberals. Just this week Richard Florida, he of the “creative class” and yeasty “ideopolises,” has a book out admitting that the creative class cities are just places that cater for the well-to-do and banish ordinary people to the margins. They “created economic growth only for the already rich, displacing the poor and working classes.”

On this view you might think that the Trump voters are not racist sexist homophobes, but genuinely suffering under the unjust rule of the liberal “creative classes” and their BLM/Antifa enforcers, and that they elected Donald Trump to redress their grievances.

But I couldn’t possibly comment.”
