THE FATE OF THE GOP REMAINS UNCERTAIN…

GOP 06

In 2008, Barry “Almighty” rode into the White House on what was then a wave of Democrat votes, and there were many at the time who believed it was the beginning of what would be a permanent Democrat majority.  I even seem to recall hearing from many on the left that with the election of Barry “Almighty” we would see the Republican Party being left wandering out in the far reaches of the political wilderness for what would likely be, the next 20 years.  But something odd, and totally unexpected, happened on the way to the wilderness.

Because, instead of becoming the permanent majority party for years, or perhaps decades, to come, the Democrat Party has become what has been described as, decimated as all across the country 85 of 98 state legislatures have become more Republican since 2010.  And Democrats and other liberals were so sure that the Republican Party had become a doomed party upon the ascension of Barry that many had thought that the popular liberal book, “The Emerging Democratic Majority,” had been validated.  But, apparently, such was not the case.  At least not yet.

Because while Democrats were busy slapping themselves on the back and congratulating themselves, something very odd began to take place.  Democrats out in the states, even very blue states, began to lose election after election. It has gotten so bad that even hardcore Democrat imbecile Dona Brazile recently complained that she and her party “have absolutely been devastated.”  Politico’s Jeff Grenfield agreed, saying, “no president in modern times has presided over so disastrous a stretch for his party, at almost every level of politics.”

And it was a recent article in the Washington Post which found that Democrats have “taken a drubbing” in the states.  The Post found that “the ratio of Republicans to Democrats has tilted to the right in nearly every Senate and nearly every legislature” since Barry was first elected.  “According to the NCSL data,” the Post article notes, “there were 4,082 Democrats in state senates and state houses in 2009. In 2015, there were 3,163–a decrease of 22.5 percent.”  This massive loss, the article notes, is another reason the Democrat’s bench is so weak all over the country.

But make no mistake, even with all that having been said, the fact that the demise of the Republican Party has been avoided, at least for now, it has had little to do with anything the party might have actually done.  Because the survival of the party beyond 2017 still remains very much in doubt.  We have a majority in Congress who insists upon doing nothing more than to kowtow to a president who should have long ago been impeached, and a cadre of presidential candidates who has yet to make the case that it would be nothing short of disaster if we were elect another Democrat.

OBAMA ISSUES MARCHING ORDERS TO BOEHNER AND MCCONNELL…

GOP 07

So apparently, our ‘Dear Beloved Leader’, Barack Hussein Obama has now taken it upon himself to issue what he considers to his marching orders to the Republicans in Congress, warning them against threatening a government shutdown after returning from their break in September.  At which point they will have a month to pass a new federal budget.  And I am quite sure, knowing our ‘Republicans in Congress’ as I do, they will most assuredly be only to happy to do exactly as they are told.  Because it matters not that we are neck deep in debt, only that Barry be allowed to spend.

It was just this past Thursday that, while in New Orleans to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Barry was heard to say, “Let’s not introduce unrelated partisan issues.”  And our ‘Fearless Leader’ went on to say, “Nobody gets to hold the American economy hostage over their own ideological demands.”  Apparently he most certainly was not talking about himself or any of his fellow Democrats because they have most certainly taken the position of holding the economy, and the country, hostage on any number of occasions over their ideological demands.

Now for those unaware, the new fiscal year begins on Oct. 1.  And if Congress doesn’t pass a budget, which I don’t think has been done at any time during Barry’s entire presidency, then it must pass a continuing resolution, or a temporary measure in order to keep the government fully funded and operating.  Earlier this week, it was Ted Cruz, a presidential candidate, who said he would push for any continuing resolution to defund Planned Parenthood. Other Republicans have opposed removing the sequester cuts that would require a boost in federal spending.

It was during Barry’s little speech there in New Orleans that he talked about how the economy has recovered. “It’s why we need to do everything we can in government to make sure our progress keeps growing,” Obama said. “That requires Congress to protect our momentum, not kill it. Congress is about to come back from a six-week recess.”  It is only by Barry’s definition that the economy can be said to have ‘recovered’. For Barry to continue to put forth the idiotic claim that there has been an economic recovery of any kind is absolutely ludicrous and patently dishonest.

Barry said, “I want everybody to understand that Congress has about a month to pass a budget that helps our economy grow.” He added, “Otherwise we risk shutting down the government and services we all count on for the second time in two years. That would not be responsible. It does not have to happen. Congress needs to fund America in a way that invests in our growth, in our security. Not in a way that cuts us off at the knees by locking in mindless austerity or short cited sequester cuts for our economy and our military.”  This kind of rhetoric is nothing less than reckless!

Barry went on to issue a veto threat saying, “I’ve said I would veto a budget like that.” He went on to say, “I think most Americans agree, we’ve got to invest in rather than cut things like military readiness, infrastructure, schools, public health, the research and development that keeps our companies on the cutting edge. That’s what great nations do.”  What about ‘great nations’ that continue to spend more than they take in, racking up a $19 Trillion debt.  Are they simply supposed to keep spending record amounts even though they are essentially broke?  How responsible is that?

I think we can all come to agree that our Republican majority in Congress has proven to be nothing more than an unmitigated disaster and a complete disappointment and shows no sign of becoming anything different in the near future. Republicans are going to have a very important decisions to make over the course of the next few months if they are to have any hope of maintaining their current majorities beyond 2017.  They can either do as Barry says, or they can do as we the people demand!  You would think that the decision would be a relatively simple one.  And yet…

OBAMA, STILL WORKING TO TAKE OUR GUNS…

Gun Control 16

Well it would seem that we now have yet another bit of proof, albeit unneeded, that Barry “Almighty” is really nothing more than a lying sack of shit determined in his efforts to subvert our Constitution.  And it is in that effort that he will say absolutely anything if he feels it will increase his odds of being able to take guns out of the hands of law abiding Americans. It came when he recently made the claim that gun-related killings here in the U.S. actually outpace those deaths caused by terrorism.

And you would think that after having been forced to put up with this guy’s bullshit for nearly seven years we would be able to pretty easily recognize this tendency of his to exaggerate, distort, or to even outright lie about such statistics, especially if he happens to think that they can be made to ‘appear’ to support his leftist position on any one of his favorite topics allowing him to move forward on anti-America agenda.  Topics ranging from climate change to gun control.

And so it was then that in a recent interview we heard Barry “Almighty” telling a Philadelphia television reporter on Wednesday that gun-related violence in America has come to far outpace the number deaths caused by terrorism.  WPVI-TV’s Monica Malpass interviewed Barry in the White House and asked him about the shooting deaths Wednesday morning of WDBJ-TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward.  And of course he was only too quick to blame the gun and not the shooter.

Now in some strange case you have yet heard about this tragedy, these two were shot on live television by disgruntled former reporter Vester Flanagan, who, as it happens, was both gay and black.  Barry said, “It breaks my heart every time you read about or hear about these kinds of incidents.”  He went on to say, “What we know is that the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism.”  A good reporter would have challenged him.

Because, you see, the facts tell are far different story than what Barry would have us all believe.  According to the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, about 32,000 people in the United States die by gunshot wound. About 60 percent of those are by suicide, 3 percent are accidental shootings, and 34 percent (or about 11,000) are homicides.  Meanwhile, worldwide terrorism deaths shot up to almost 33,000 in 2014 after years of decline.  So you can see Barry’s claim is so patently dishonest.

And then, of course, we have none other than Democrat presidential ‘front runner’ Hitlery Clinton who’s never been one to let such a tragedy go to waste. Hitlery, on Wednesday, went out of her way to use the incident to call for tougher gun laws.  I’m sure you’ll remember when, back in 2012, her old good friend Ed Rendell made the rather disgusting comments regarding the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting tragedy, saying “the good thing about it was that it was so horrific.”

I’m sure we are all aware, or at least we should be, of the rabid fanaticism of those on the left when it comes to finally being able to strip from law abiding Americans their constitutionally guaranteed right to own a gun.  And it’s extremely important that we remain able to recognize the fact that they will leave no lie untold nor any tragedy ignored in their effort to accomplish that end.  We simply cannot afford to believe anything that they might say.  The risk to our freedoms is too great!

DEMOCRATS BLINDED BY THEIR HATRED OF AMERICA…

Democrats 36

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there is little doubt that Democrats, and especially our disaster of a president, loath America.  And if you’re stupid enough to vote for Democrats, then guess what?  You’re doing nothing more than to vote ‘for’ those who are working to bring about the death of your own country.  And how insane is that?  Democrats have a well-publicized history of acting against that which is in the best interest of America.  And let’s face it, those of us who are old enough will remember the many exploits of Democrats during the Vietnam War.  And things have only proceeded to get worse since then.

And really very little has changed since then as is evidenced by the most recent example of just how determined the Democrats remain in their effort to bring about the end of America, that being of course Barry “Almighty’s” highly questionable Iran nuclear deal.  A deal which, apparently, a growing number of Democrat senators are now coming to support. To the point where just five more Democrats are needed to sustain Barry’s promised veto of a resolution the purpose of which is to disapprove the agreement.  Democrats seem all too eager to assist Barry’s in aiding his Muslim brothers and at the expense of keeping the American people safe.

With the recent announcements of support for Barry’s deal with Iran, aka the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), by Democrats Patty Murray and Debbie Stabenow, the number of its Democrat supporters in the Senate now stands at 29.  And assuming that all Republicans, which is never good with respect to our cadre of congressional RINOs, vote to disapprove the deal when the resolution comes to the floor sometime in mid-September, the support of 13 Democrats would be needed to override that promised presidential veto.  Now what do you think is the likelihood that there will be 13 Democrat willing to stand with America and against Barry?

Only two Democrats thus far, Chuckie Schumer and Robert Menendez, had announced their opposition to the deal as of late yesterday.  Eleven of the still supposedly undeclared 15 would have to join them to reach the needed target of 13.  But let’s face it, these two guys are confident that there will be more than enough Democrats who come out in favor of the ‘deal’.  And I think it’s more than a little naïve to expect there to be enough Democrats who would be willing to override Barry’s veto.  It’s simply not going to happen.  Democrats simply won’t be able to bring themselves to stand with what has become majority of Americans.  It’s just not in their DNA.

And as it has done every time there has been a member of Congress who has come out in support of the JCPOA, the Barry Obummer administration celebrated Murray’s and Stabenow’s decisions. “Another YES for @TheIranDeal,” tweeted that well-known bimbo Marie Harf, strategic communications adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry-Heinz, after each senator made their stance public. Harf provided links to their statements explaining their reasons, and @TheIranDeal, an administration-controlled Twitter account, also highlighted the announcements.  But the last time I checked there are still more Americans who oppose it, than support it.

And it was in their statements that Murray and Stabenow both acknowledged concerns with parts of the agreement but said after close review and consultations they ultimately decided it was worthy of support.  Murray said it was “not a perfect deal, and there are several elements I would like to be stronger,” but concluded that she was “convinced that moving forward with this deal is the best chance we have at a strong diplomatic solution …”  So I guess what’s all important to this pansy-assed imbecile is that we have any sort of a “diplomatic solution” no matter how seriously flawed it might be.  Liberal lunacy is now there for all to see.

And it was Stabenow who also described the deal as “not perfect,” but went on to say, “I have determined that the imminent threat of Iran having a nuclear weapon outweighs any flaws I see in the international agreement.”  Well I’m not sure about you, but that certainly makes ME feel better.  But ya know, I’d be more than just a little curious to know just what it is that she thinks makes her anywhere near qualified to make such a determination?  Is it simply because there were enough brain-dead Democrats in her state who were willing to vote for her?  Because if that’s the case then that’s no qualification.

And that which should come as a surprise to no one familiar with the hostility these Democrats have toward America, is the fact that apparently we now have news that would seem it indicate that at least some Senate Democrats are not content to merely uphold Barry’s veto of a resolution disapproving the Iran deal.  Because according to The Associated Press we now know that those Democrats who support this deal are currently talking about working to get enough votes, 41, to kill the disapproval resolution outright in the Senate, preventing the need for a presidential veto.  Such an attempt should come as a surprise to no one really.

Bob Corker, well-known RINO from Tennessee and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is the primary architect of this resolution.  And it was on Tuesday that he called the plan to kill it, stunning.  “I find that stunning that the leader, the Democrat leader, is proposing that,” Corker told The Associated Press in a phone interview, referring to ‘Dingy Harry’ Reid.  Corker said, “All but one senator voted in favor of having the right to vote on the final deal, so then to turn right around and filibuster it to me is very inconsistent, and I think would be confusing to the people they represent.”

Corker told the AP, “I don’t think there’s any question but the lobbying effort by the administration certainly has generated results, and I have no idea what the final vote is going to be but certainly they’ve picked up some support on the Democratic side.”  Fifteen Senate Democrats have yet to make known whether they will support this horrendous deal, or if they will put the country above politics and oppose it.  And those Democrats are: Michael Bennet, Richard Blumenthal, Cory Booker, Maria Cantwell, Ben Cardin, Thomas Carper, Robert Casey, Christopher Coons, Heidi Heitkamp, Joe Manchin, Jeff Merkley, Barbara Mikulski, Gary Peters, Mark Warner, and Ron Wyden.

Ya know, I often wonder what it is that might be going through someone’s mind at that specific moment in time when they make that consciously decision to vote for a Democrat, any Democrat.  Do they even realize, or understand, what it really is that they’re voting for?  That being, of course, the bringing about of the demise of their own country, the same country which they will be leaving to their children.  And if they were made to understand that, would such an understanding be sufficient for them to change their vote?  Or, is voting Democrat so ingrained in these people that they simply can’t help themselves.  Are they addicted to voting Democrat?

ARROGANCE, THY NAME IS OBAMA…

Obama Speaks On Increasing Tech Training and Jobs

For a man who held so much promise is there now a more arrogant, self-centered or narcissist piece of shit to be found anywhere on the entire planet than our president?  It just never seems to end with guy.  As his time in office winds down it would now seem that Barry “Almighty” feels compelled to put people on notice. He wants to make sure they are all aware that he’s now back from another vacation and feeling “refreshed, renewed, recharged” and, he says, more than “a little feisty.”  And he has made it quite clear what he means by feisty.

And so it was that while at yet another Democrat fundraiser, this one in ‘Dingy Harry’ Reid country, just last night, Barry “Almighty”, our ‘Dear Beloved Leader’, declared himself ready for the challenges he will likely face this fall in dealing with a Republican Congress that disagrees with him on the budget, energy policy, education and much more.  Personally, from what I‘ve seen from our Republicans in Congress I’m thinking that he may be intentionally overstating his case for political purposes.  Because our Republicans have presented Barry with very few challenges.

Barry said that as he’d ridden to the fundraiser with his old friend ‘Dingy Harry’ Reid, and it was during this ride that they’d done some reminiscing and spent some time “figuring out how we are going to deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems.”  Now of course he didn’t bother to go into detail in identifying exactly who the two of them had defined as “crazies.”  But I’m sure we can assume about whom he was speaking because it’s likely to be anyone who dares to disagree with his Socialist approach to how he thinks this country should operate.

But Barry did speak, and at great length, about what he views as being his differences with the Republican Congress.  And in his hypocritical tone, he lamented that “too often, our political debates are not about what’s best for the country but what’s best for the next election.”  If the country is to remain a strong world leader, he said, it needs “not just a president who, after a few gray hairs, seems to know what he’s doing, but we also need a Congress that functions.”  But the truth is America ceased being a world leader the day this ass was sworn in as president.

I thought it rather humorous how it was that Barry seemed to imply that he’s a president who knows what he’s doing.  But we ALL know what Barry is really doing, and that would be his best to dismantle the very foundations of this country, brick by brick.  Barry also looked beyond the immediate challenges to simpler times down the road.  He said that since neither he nor ‘Dingy Harry’ is seeking re-election next year, the two off them had talked about “riding off into the sunset together.”  Too bad it won’t be riding off right over a cliff!

It was earlier on Monday that Barry spoke at a green energy conference where he accused fossil fuel interests and other critics of his energy policies of trying to restrict consumers from accessing solar, wind and other renewable sources in order to protect the status quo.  Barry whined, “That’s not the American way.”  He added, “This is about the past versus the future. America believes in the future.”  Actually, what is not the American way is Barry’s idiotic idea is that we should ignore the fact that we have 500 years worth of coal while focusing on far more costly ‘green energy.’

Barry also questioned the ideological consistency of those who champion free-market solutions, except when the free market is pointing to the wisdom of renewable energy.  But as we’ve seen, even with massive subsidizing by the taxpayer, Barry’s ‘renewable energy’ sources remain not practical.  And he singled out billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, who are major donors to Republican political candidates while leaving completely out of the conversation the likes of George Soros, Tom Steyer, and Mike Bloomberg to name just a few lefty billionaires.

Barry went on to say, “It’s one thing if you’re consistent in being free market.”  And he added, “It’s another thing when you’re free market until it’s solar that’s working and people want to buy and suddenly you’re not for it anymore. That’s a problem.”  Barry said the economics are now such that “solar isn’t just for the green crowd any more, it’s for the green-eyeshade crowd too.”  Barry has never been a big supporter of our free market system and to blame it for the continued failure of his ‘green energy’ boondoggles is simply to deny reality.

While Barry has shown time and again that he very much likes to throw stones at congressional Republicans, I must confess that I’ve seen very little from our newly minted Republican majority in Congress that would seem to indicate that Barry has very much to worry about when it comes to running into any significant opposition.  Our limp-wristed leadership have demonstrated, nearly from day one, that they are more than willing to go along with pretty much anything that he may want.  This despite the many campaign promises that were made to the contrary.

To say that I hate this man whom we have had the misfortune to have as our president for nearly seven years would most definitely be an understatement.  And before anyone accuses me of basing my hatred on his color, let me tell ya somethin’.  He came into office a man on a mission, and that mission was to destroy America by any means possible.  The fact that this man was able to get elected and then reelected proves beyond the shadow of any doubt that there are now many who reside in this country who are in favor of his objective.

The bottom line here is that I have now gotten to the point where I have literally no respect for any person who chooses to willingly support Barry in his effort to complete his mission of dismantling this the greatest exercise in human freedom in all of history.  The fact is that being a Democrat is synonymous with hating America.  And I’ve never been able to figure out what stirs in someone such a loathing for country that guarantees its citizens a life spent living in freedom.  It’s as if the prefer to be told how they must live their lives by an all-powerful government.

A FATE FAR WORSE THAN A HITLERY CLINTON PRESIDENCY…

Democrats 35

Just when I thought things couldn’t possibly get any worse than Hitlery, along comes rumors of a potential 2016 Democrat ticket consisting of ‘Slow Joe’ Biden and Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren.  I guess this has now become what many Democrats deem as being a palatable ‘Plan B’ should Hiterly Clinton end up going down in flames because of what has become her rather impressive list of scandals.  While it’s hard to imagine a worse scenario than having to endure another Clinton presidency, the possibility of a Biden-Warren ticket is even more frightening.

But be that as it may, that hasn’t stopped political pundits of nearly every stripe from being all abuzz regarding the prospects of a ‘Slow Joe’ Biden-Elizabeth ‘Pocahantas’ Warren 2016 ticket in the wake of an unannounced meeting that took place between the two on Saturday.  This would be the ultimate in the world of ‘Dumb and Dumber’ presidential politics.  And ya know what’s really sad is that there a good many ‘Americans’ would be only too happy to vote for these two clowns and for no other reason than to keep their taxpayer funded freebies coming.

Apparently, ‘Slow Joe’, now 72, has told friends that if he does run for president, he will serve only one term, making an early announcement of his vice-presidential running-mate a strong possibility.  But let’s face it, even a one term Biden presidency would be more than sufficient to complete the remaining ‘fundamental transformation’ of America begun by Barry.  And also, if elected, ‘Slow Joe’ would be the oldest incoming president.  And the scary thing about ‘Slow Joe’ is that in his particular case, older doesn’t mean wiser.  It simply means demented.

So it was then on that this past Saturday ‘Slow Joe’ left his home in Delaware to meet up with, leftwing kook, ‘Pocahontas’ Warren at his official residence at the Naval Observatory.  We’re told that these two leftwing loons got together for a couple hours to discuss policy issues over lunch, but speculation now seems to be growing about whether old ‘Slow Joe’ might actually be looking to tap ‘Pocahontas’, who is, hysterically speaking, her state’s senior Senator, as his running mate for next year’s election.  God help us if these two were actually to get elected.

And I’m quite sure that it goes without saying that many of those in our leftist state-controlled media, as well as any number of hardcore leftist Democrat activists, would like nothing more than to see ‘Pocahontas’ somewhere on the ballot — as does at least one ‘Slow Joe’ confidant according to The Boston Globe.  It was longtime ‘Slow Joe’ Biden adviser Larry Rasky that told the newspaper, “I think that would be a great ticket.”  Great for whom exactly?  I can only assume he must be referencing the millions of parasites who are encouraged to live off the rest of us.

And then we had “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd, who opened his show wondering whether ‘Slow Joe’ might be “sending a not-so-subtle message of perhaps what his dream ticket could look like.”  And it was USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page who would later say on the same show during a ‘roundtable discussion’: “On behalf of political reporters everywhere, and not for ideological and partisan reasons, I would like to ask Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren to run as a ticket.  I think that would be fantastic to cover. I’m 100 percent in favor.”

And later it was over on the Communist New Network’s, (CNN), “State of the Union,” that GOP hopeful Ben Carson was asked if a ‘Slow Joe’-Pocahontas ticket would cause him any concern.  To which Carson responded to guest host Jim Acosta by saying, “No, it doesn’t.”  And Mr. Carson then went on to say, “You know, I am happy with whatever they come up with, because I think that this election will be an excellent opportunity for the American people to make a clear choice. I don’t think it is going to be muddied.”  There will be “clear choice” only if we’re mindful who we nominate.

Washington Post blogger Chris Cillizza found the Biden-Warren summit “SUPER intriguing.”  And Daily Beast columnist and MSNBC contributor Jonathan Alter thinks that, at the very least, the subject came up.  Alter later clarified: “I’m not speculating that Biden offered VP much less that Warren accepted. Only saying that my bet is the subject came up.”  Josh Alcorn of Draft Biden 2016 declined to speculate when asked about it on “Fox News Sunday.”  Alcorn, a former adviser to Biden’s recently deceased son, Beau, said, “You’ll have to let the vice president talk about that.”

And it was ‘journalist’ and author Carl Bernstein who told CNN’s “New Day” on Friday that he’s heard such talk.  And in speaking about ‘Slow Joe’ Biden’s possible plan, it was Bernstein who said that he wants to “serve for four years, unite Washington.”  He went on to say, “I think there’s a conversation going on to that effect among his aides and friends.”  Unite Washington?  What kind of liberal tripe is that?  Let’s face it, there is already very little difference between our two parties.  Bernstein’s even a bigger dumbass than his ‘Watergate’ buddy, Woodward.

According to Ruth Marcus of The Washington Post ‘Slow Joe’ Biden clearly would like to be president, but is letting things play out with Hitlery Clinton’s troubles re her private email server.  At least that’s what she said on “Face the Nation.”  Marcus went on to say, “Joe Biden has wanted to be president and has been running for president since Hillary Clinton was first lady of Arkansas.” Biden ran unsuccessfully in 1988 and again in 2008.  So while many on the left don’t seem quite ready to cast Hitlery over the side, they do seem be getting might close to doing just that.

But let’s be honest here for a minute, can we.  The plain truth is that this country would never be able to survive even a one term ‘Slow Joe’ administration.  As a nation we are now, quite literally, hanging by a thread, and virtually on every single front.  This little experimentation in socialism that has been taking place over the course of the last 7 years has proven to be nothing more than extremely toxic to what had up until that time been commonly referred to as ‘the American way of life.’  Because it has been nothing more than a sleigh ride to Hell.

ARE WE NOW WITNESSING ‘TRUMP DERANGEMENT DISORDER’???

237

Is it just me or do I seem to recall that it wasn’t all that long ago, politically speaking, when we were hearing many on the right taking a certain amount of joy in accusing many on the left of being afflicted with what they referred as a psychological disorder they called Bush Derangement Syndrome.  This affliction was described as follows: the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency — nay — the very existence of George W. Bush.   And apparently it’s contagious since these days I would argue that it’s now many on the right who have come down with what sounds like a very similar type of psychological disorder.

And it’s this new disorder that could, at least as far as I’m concerned, very easily be identified as, Trump Derangement Syndrome.  Symptoms of this latest condition seem to include, but are not be limited to: the coming completely unhinged over Donald Trump as well as those who support him, and seem to cause anti-Trump journalists, as well as those pundits and political strategists who reside on the Right, to exhibit some of the most rank and disgustingly juvenile reactions.  It’s really quite amazing and should call into question how it is that these individuals should be viewed as conservatives when acting so much like liberals.

Now it’s one thing for some liberal rag like the Washington Post to run pictures of Trump grimacing under the headline, “Trump Runs for the Spite House,” etc., but the intensity, and the absolute crudity, coming from of those who are the supposed voices of brand-name conservatism is nowhere to be exceeded.  And frankly I find it as being nothing short of appalling that those whom I once viewed as being serious journalists may in fact more closely resemble the intellectual lightweights that reside on the left.  Let’s just call them ‘CINO’ Conservatives.  Because like RINOs, most of these ‘journalists’ are simply ‘Conservative In Name Only’.

Cindy Simpson, writing in the ‘American Thinker’, collected a recent sample of the visceral, and even pornographically-themed, hostility toward Trump and his supporters which has now erupted amid the punditry on the Right.  While I’m assuming there’s an attempt by some to be witty, what generally comes out is the equivalent of graffiti. Simpson sees the trend as off-putting not only to Trump supporters but also to those seeking a “Big Tent”.  After reading through Simpson’s collection one finds that disgusting examples abound. After all, who in their right mind would want to get inside a shrinking tent with these smut-talking men?

And it’s in reading Simpson’s piece one is struck by how often it is that the arguments and conversations all too often begin with name-calling — Trump supporters are, in the (maybe humorous?) tweet of a leading NR writer/author, “mouth breathing anti-Semites and white nationalists” (Jonah Goldberg). Another NR correspondent writes in a column that Trump supporters are “engaged in the political version of masturbation: sterile, fruitless self-indulgence” (Kevin Williamson). Tweeted approval from a Commentary editor ping-pongs back: “Man. This piece. @KevinNR grabs Trump supporters by the… well, you know” (Noah Rothman).

And so, welcome to the metaphorical gutter of anti-Trump/supporter debate and journalism, where “vomit” and “rape-lovers” also pass as terms of political repartee (Commentary editor John Podhoretz). Seriously?  And then there was this headline of an essay by David Harsanyi at The Federalist: “Trump’s Immigration Plan Is Hardcore Porn for Nativists”.  I can only assume that many on our side have now taken up with hanging out with those more skilled practitioners of ‘journalistic malpractice who typically operate within the confines of the liberal gutter.  This is not the kind of language that we have come to expect from those supposedly on our side.

I’m thinking that far too many on our side are losing, or may have already lost, sight of the real objective here.  And that is, of course, to prevent Hitlery, or any other Democrat, from winning the keys to the White House.  And I can only come to the conclusion that those now busying themselves by going after Trump and his supporters would be much more comfortable if it were someone the likes of a Jeb Bush or perhaps a Christie, both sure losers in a general election, were to win the nomination.  Ya know, I’ve always thought that those on the right were a bit more adult in their behavior than those on the left.  But apparently I was wrong.  Dead wrong!
