Idle Thoughts About the Presidential Race

Donald Trump has run into another non-issue.  There’s no point in dignifying this non-controversy with pixel space given that his opponent in this Presidential contest has no redeeming qualities and has done things like setting the entire Middle East on fire.  Since Trump seems to be off his game yet again, it’s time for one idle thought on a reality of this particular race no one has considered yet.

Given that Hillary Clinton is involved, one thing is very certain.  The winner of this race gets the Presidency, and the loser will be ruined.   Not defeated, but ruined.  Utterly.

Why say this?  Well, if the winner is Trump, it’s time to prosecute Hillary.  Or at least try to prosecute Hillary.  It could be the deep state is already so far in the tank they won’t touch her even under orders.  Obviously, the Bushes were Clinton bitches so they weren’t going to do it.  But Trump isn’t a Bush and he might do something radical like his job.  That means Hillary gets to sport an orange jumpsuit should she lose and probably watch the Clinton foundation disintegrate under lawsuits and refund requests.

If it’s Hillary?  Trump will have gotten in her way.  She won’t let that slide and hasn’t demonstrated things like moral compunctions or respect for the rule of law in the past.  So if the worst case scenario comes to pass and he loses, there are going to be some very severe consequences.

As someone who would like to see him win, I hope he returns to form or runs whatever end game he has in mind.  This particular Presidential run is high stakes for the entire country, and that includes him.

Enjoying the Moment

Hillary Clinton has offered those of us in the electoral peanut gallery  couple of good moments to believe she may finally attain some level of accountability in November.

1.)  Hillary left an event on 9/11 with assistance.  At least that’s the friendly way to put it.  Others say she was carried out and thrown into a van.  Regardless, it doesn’t appear her health is up to the task of running for President.  You could say it would be a shame if Trump simply ran her into the ground on his way to victory in November, but there’s really no point in being polite any longer.

2.)  The ‘basket of deplorables’ comment from the Clinton camp, better known as the gift to Trump that keeps on giving.  No one should really care that the Democrats are stringing along identity politics epithets like ‘bigot’ and ‘racist’ if you’ve been subjected to it for a few decades.  They’re basically Shut Up and Fall Into Line cards cynically played to mock opposition into submission.

Trouble is that they’re not dealing with a campaign like Team Bushfail.  They’re dealing with Trump, who is in it to become President.  They’re dealing with people who show some inkling of pushback against the Alinsky crap.  And we deplorables that are supposed to be cowed by this latest round of anti-racist virtue signaling are embracing the term.

Enjoy the show.  Things may get crazy before this is over.

One Last Chance at McCain

Tomorrow is the best chance Arizona has at removing McCain with Kelli Ward.  The Democrat, although offering honesty in labeling and thus an improvement if less so than Ward, doesn’t have as much hope.  In either event, if McCain makes it back to the Senate there is a good chance he will spend the rest of his life there.  If you want to hold him to account by removing him office involuntarily Arizona, tomorrow is your last realistic chance.

I apologize to both of my avid readers about the absence last week.  I’ve been off on a project I will be taking up full time once this blog winds down for good.  McCain will either be removed or set for life come November.  And as for what I lightheartedly call the Maverick Paradigm?  It’s alive and well on sites like Breitbart that do that job far better than I can.  Republican duplicity is now a common topic of conversation and no one who now knows of it is going back to sleep again.  The Establishment free ride is gone.  It’s glorious, and I wish I’d had more to do with it.

But for now, opportunity knocks Arizona.  See McCain for what he truly is and pink slip him accordingly.

Notes About Trump Support

If you’re a Trump supporter, take a moment to consider these points.

1.)  If he were doing as badly as the media wants you to believe, they wouldn’t be this rabid.  They’ve been short-circuited this entire election cycle and it’s showing.  If you start to feel demoralized by their outright lying, disconnect from them.

2.)  Trump has done well to this point but his victory is by no means certain.  So while it is to your advantage to tune out the detractors, do not tune out when he requests your assistance.  He has to upend the iron rice bowls of the existing power structure on both sides to restore true representation and he’ll need some help.

3.)  In the future, skepticism of all leadership is an absolute must.  As this election season has demonstrated, they might not be who you thought they were and require a complete write-off.  I don’t miss a lot of the people I’ll never be fool enough to believe again, and recommend that approach to you.

4.)  There is no practical distinction between Republican Establishment and the Democrats.  The fact they sound the same as you do until it matters is immaterial.  If you can’t primary one that absolutely must go (see Paul Ryan), purge vote them, because it concentrates the opposition to one party instead of leaving it infesting both of them.  There will be no true second party until you insist on it with your voting and rule out the alternative.

Keep calm and carry on.

The maverick always has it coming
