Autopsy of A Dead Coup

Victor Davis Hanson does his homework. He is one of the most qualified political writers of our time and is not a far-right nut. He knows his stuff. This is treason, and should be prosecuted as such. The penalty for that used to be death. I think the left and the deep state needs to pay attention.

The Worst Of The Left’s Face-Palm Inducing Race-Baiting This Week

Two dopey ESPN hosts (I thought they were getting out of politics) accused the President of racism for serving fast-food burgers to Clemson’s football team. Numerous other leftist media clowns did the same.

Good thing he didn’t serve Taco Bell…that would have been mocking illegal immigrants. And thank God he didn’t serve KFC! Can you imagine the melt-down? The President also was criticized for being sexist for making a joke about Melania making salads for the boys. Make no mistake: this is simply about Trump…everything he does comes with evil intentions. If Obama did this, the same morons would be praising him for his “coolness and ability to relate to college athletes” and his “generosity during the shutdown”. To the far-left, everything is racist, rendering the term meaningless.

What is racism? It is treating someone differently because of their race or skin color. Who does this EVERY DAMN DAY?? The left! These people are the real racists, and race-baiters. Though comical at times, it is also dangerous. This sort of behavior has horribly divided the country and has ultimately led to violence. When you believe that half the country is racist, as many Democrats now state, where do you stop?

Not to be outdone, an idiotic CNN talking head named Areva Martin accused conservative commentator David Webb of “white privilege”. One problem, Webb is black, LOL! The left plumbing the depths of stupidity. At least do some research, moron. This is how far leftist journalistic standards have fallen. CNN – the most trusted name in news…NOT!

We are in serious trouble, folks.

An (Attempted) Objective Assessment of The 2018 Election

Well, that was fun. Regardless of the outcome, I, like probably 99% of Americans, am glad it is over. Context first:

In the Senate the GOP had a clear advantage with 26 of 35 races being Democrat seats and many of them being in GOP-friendly states. In the House the GOP faced an uphill battle with close to 50 retirements and historical trends pointing to the party in power typically losing 30 seats or more, and up to 63 (Obama). The Dems needed 23 to flip the House. The story was similar among state governors where the GOP had a number retiring or term-limited and started with an all-time record 33 governors.

The good: the GOP is poised to gain a net three Senate seats pending the outcomes of Florida and Arizona and the Mississippi run-off, the latter a near-lock as the state had two Republicans run, diluting the vote. This would take them to 54 with pick-ups in ND, Indiana, Missouri and Florida and one narrow loss in Nevada. They also appear to have lost Montana, unfortunately, by a few thousand votes. The Senate controls the judiciary and a large part of legislation, so expanding their number is huge to Trump and the GOP, especially with the electoral map being less Senate-friendly to them in 2020.

The not very good: the GOP lost control of the House as expected, but so far the losses are a net 26 (29 lost, 3 gained) so not as bad as many feared or projected. Furthermore, over half of these came from a mere six states: NY, NJ, VA, PA, IA and IL. A few more losses are expected perhaps bringing the number of total seats lost to around 30 or a little higher. This was not the “Blue Wave” that the Democrats and far-left media had been trumpeting. Dare I say, if the GOP had a more normal retirement number of 20-25, they likely would have held the House? On the governor’s side, the GOP appears to have lost seven states while gaining one, while the Dems picked up 7. Again, about as expected. Not great but given the all-time high of 33 states held, the GOP really had no place to go but down.

With this, I would say both sides largely held serve, and call it a minor loss for the GOP. Winning a couple more Senate seats and holding a few more governors or keeping the House would have been a huge win for the GOP and Trump, and they were not that far off. This was not a resounding Dem victory: do not listen to the corrupt media propaganda calling it such. But it was also not a victory for Trump, despite the way he is positioning it.

Everything Is Trump’s Fault

Here is the current narrative from the intellectually and morally bankrupt Left-wing media. The attention-seeking “MAGABomber” who sent devices either intentionally or unintentionally made so poorly they would not hurt a fly is Trump’s fault because he is obviously a right-wing nut who was motivated by Trump’s hateful rhetoric. The Jew-hating AND Trump-hating synagogue killer is also Trump’s fault because he moved the embassy, is pro-Israel and hates immigrants, causing this guy to become enraged and murder a bunch of innocent Jews, or something.

All you need to know is that EVERYTHING is the fault of Trump (and the GOP). Even hurricanes, tornadoes and heavy rains. Who knew Trump had such God-like power??

Only complete idiots and leftist, tantrum-throwing emotionalists believe this crap.
