State of the race for POTUS

with 119 comments

I was going to write about how suddenly, at the most convenient time for the HRC campaign, a bunch of women have mysteriously surfaced with stories about how Donald Trump sexually assaulted them. At the pro-Trump sites like Drudge, there are links to articles that debunk many of those claims, which make all of the claims suspect and not believable.

But the issue is bigger than that. The left has become unhinged.

As I have been saying for some time, the left is a lot smarter than the right. On the right, you have #NeverTrumpers who think that HRC can win and then they can come back in 2020 with a “real conservative” (although why they think a “real conservative” can win the nomination in 2020 when such a person couldn’t win in 2016, and do they think that Jeb Bush is a “real conservative?”), and you have some mainstream GOPe types who think Trump has no chance of winning so they should just focus on winning seats in Congress. But the left is behaving like this is the most important election ever and they are doing everything possible to stop Trump at all costs. The left is smarter than the right, so this behavior means that they think the election is very close and they must use every dirty trick possible in order to win. Also, the left thinks that President Trump is a much more horrible outcome than President Bush.

The left is smarter than the right. That explains why, in the long run, during the last 80 years or so, the left has won on every issue it has put its sights on. With one possible exception: the left used to be anti-capitalist. Somewhere along the way, the left joined forces with the corporations and the financial institutions. This unholy alliance has made the left that much more powerful.

From segregated schools at the beginning of the 1950s, today all racist thought-crimes are policed by the mainstream media. Homosexuality has been normalized. From restricted immigration from the Great Depression until 1965, today we are closer to achieving the leftist goal of open borders.

The left is afraid that, unlike with other Republican presidents, Donald Trump can actually turn back the clock and significantly reverse the gains the left has made. The issues the left cares about:

Open borders
Eradicating (perceived) racism
Eradicating gender
Preventing climate change

Notice that, over time, the right has slowly come around to adopting the leftist positions. It just takes two decades or so. Only on the abortion issue (a subcategory of eradicating gender) has the right held firm. (I don’t agree with the pro-life movement, this is just an observation that the right has held firm on that one issue.)

The left believes that if Donald Trump becomes president, he will be able to substantially reverse much of the progress the left has made in these areas. And that will happen not because Trump is a genius, and not because Trump understands all of this and what he’s doing, but his simple 1950s values (before the left completely transformed our values) combined with his loud voice will turn the tide of public opinion and the power of government against these things. Instinctively, Trump is opposed to the left on these issues.

To many on the left, Trump is like Hitler. If you could stop Hitler by making up a bogus claim about how Hitler once sexually assaulted you, or bribing someone to say so, wouldn’t you do it?

One wonders why the left simply doesn’t have the power to just assassinate Trump. Or maybe they do have that power and are just keeping it as a last resort if Trump wins the election. (Maybe you are thinking “that’s a crazy paranoid conspiracy theory!” But think about it. The left thinks Trump is like Hitler. If you could assassinate Hitler and prevent the Holocaust, wouldn’t you do it?)

* * *

And why is the race much closer than polls show? For reasons previously discussed here and elsewhere on pro-Trump websites. People have been shamed into not saying publicly (to a pollster or even on the internet) that they will vote for Trump, but will vote for him in the privacy of the voting booth. And Trump inspires voter turnout among his supporters in a way that neither McCain nor Romney were able to do, and at the same time HRC is much less inspiring to Democrats than Obama, so models that predict likely voters are flawed when used for this election.

The people on the left are smart enough to understand this even though many on the right don’t get it.

  1. “To many on the left, Trump is like Hitler. If you could stop Hitler by making up a bogus claim about how Hitler once sexually assaulted you, or bribing someone to say it, wouldn’t you do it?

    Especially since its exactly the sort of thing Trump would do- just meshes with everyone appraisal of his character.

    When ever the conservation is about emails or the Clinton Foundation Hillary is losing.

    When Trump is talking he is losing. Period. Time and time again he gets baited into topics that he cant win. I am sure he has been told again and again not to engage losing topics but he has no self control. No self control with his campaign, none with women- it all fits.

    “But the left is behaving like this is the most important election ever”

    If you really believed that then you would encourage Trump to drop out in favor of Pence.

    Trump is running behind every other Republican in a national race (except Schumer’s opposition). He is running behind Mitt Romney’s and McCain’s vote count in NY- his home. He is a terribly unpopular candidate, but the party isnt.

    • “If you really believed that then you would encourage Trump to drop out in favor of Pence.”

      No, the election is important because of Trump. Pence would govern like George W. Bush, and the left made much progress during his presidency.

      Besides, there’s no legal basis for Trump dropping out. Isn’t his name on the ballots, not Pence? Trump dropping out just gives the election to HRC.

      • Of course not.

        Hillary, and the 800 people she has working for her in the Brooklyn complex alone, have game planned everything out and know exactly what stink bombs they are planning on dropping on each and every day that remains until the election. Trump wont withstand that.

        If Trump drops out, their entire strategy is gone. Pence/Martinez would have the most free media in history and Hillary would have lost the only reason that people are voting for her- ie they HATE Trump.

        Pence’s name is already on the ballot and there really is no legal impediment.

        If I had to guess you are not a white straight male.

        If I had to guess you spent a lot of your life living in jealous rage rather than self improve.

        Like a typical gamma, you argue semantics and throw blinds and loop de loops on the debate topic.

        Except this is not a fireside debate over two scotches and a cigar. If you genuinely believe a cuckold owuld be a superior option despite most evidence showing no difference at all with the Democrat faction of the cuckold party then fine.

        I am considerably weary of hearing your gamma sniping throughout. Even if Trump loses he knocked out the entire Republican establishment and realigned the whole political equation. Public trust in globalists, “experts” and the Republican elites is at historic lows. Hence his success.

        Your friend, Phil.

      • If it was Pence vs Hillary I might not even bother voting. They are both Neocons who want War with Assad/Russia. I don’t trust Pence on immigration, he would do nothing. I also don’t like his liberal stance on criminal justice reform. Pence is just a run of the mill conservative, nothing to get excited about. Trump is my favorite candidate of my lifetime, someone I truly have passion for.

      • Phil- I had to guess I’d say you are a diminutive portuguese women who spoke with a pronounced lisp during a critical early developmental period and who’s family were suspect of having unsavory dealings with the regime of Francisco Caballero.

        I know your type and have taken your measure.

        You pathetic Lambda’s have no debating style. Its denial, denial, denial. The mythical Trump majority is like the Higgs Bosum- undetectable but hypothesized to exist momentarily and materializing at just the right time. Some how the mystery Trump voters just dont show up on polls, no matter who conducts them and yet we are supposed to be confident that Duex ex Machina particles are going to materialize in a voting both and save the day.

        You Lambda’s cant acknowledge reality- Trump is losing. And there is no reason to think he will win because his instincts are wrong, he doesnt listen to knowledgeable advice, he has a poor temperament and is easily baited into topics that are bad for him (which nearly everything) and his past transgressions and shading dealings are going to be rained on him in the remaining weeks in a veritable shooting gallery that would make the Cossacks at Balaclava blush. Oh yeah and he hasnt bothered to spend anything on a GOTV operation, preferring to hold Nuremberg style rallies to assuage his ego.

        So there is no reason to believe in an improbable Trump victory but you loathsome Lambdas insist on spurning the country on into the cannon fire. Uhhhhh No THANKS. Ours is to reason why, and I have no intention of signing up for your suicide pact. Go off and kill yourself in whatever way seems agreeable but leave the rest of the country and the House and Senate out of it.

        Trump will be a non-entity in another 6 months. Something New York women snicker over while they get their filler injected. They and the press will try to project his resounding repudiation as a rejection of all conservatism and a mandate for actual amnesty, single payer insurance, speech code and gun confiscation. Thanks to you Lamdbas for your part in making that happen.

        Doesn’t Rasmussen and LA Times have him ahead? Wasn’t he ahead or tied for stretches unlike Romney who was never ahead in any polls despite his cuckold policies and NICE GUY CARDBOARD CUTOUT style.

        You used the word “Nuremburg rally”. Nice image you chose of all the images. Was it a suggested image? Or does it come from your favoured news source.

        In your mind Trump is like Hitler.

        4 years ago Obama and Romney were in a 1 point race.

        This year Clinton is ~7 points ahead of Trump. Outside of the MOE for the polls.

        And there is no reason to expect Trump to out preform his polls since HE HASNT HIRED ANY GOTV.

        “You used the word “Nuremburg rally”. Nice image you chose of all the images. ”

        They are nonsensical riff-fests that trumps hold for ego reasons. For instance he held one in CT, a state he has no possibility of carrying. Why? he digs it when crowds “like him”. They arent an election strategy.

        Pence is arguably one of the better “normal” Republicans on immigration. He was in favor of a touchback amnesty that is similar to what Trump proposed. But he’s not a strong enough person to stick with it when the entire party establishment would be demanding real amnesty.

      He doesn’t need NY.

      He needs Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

      Is he doing better in those states than Romney or McCain?

      Trump could lose NY and California and Illinois by 90% of the vote. It doesn’t matter.

      He needs to win Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Florida by merely 1 vote.

      Like GW Bush Trump can lose the popular vote and win the electoral college.

      It’s now all about turnout. If Democrats don’t turn out for Hillary because they hate her OR think she will win and Trump’s people turn out in huge numbers he could still win it.

      Wishful thinking on my part, I know.

      • What race is there where Trump isnt being out performed by the down ballot Republican? Other than Wendy Long.

        PA: Toomey is in a tie. Trump is down by 8.3
        Florida: Rubio is up by 5. Trump is down by 2.9
        Ohio: Portman up by 15. Trump down by 1.6
        NH: Ayotte up by 2.5. Trump down by 3.6
        Iowa: Grassley up by 15. Trump up 3.7
        Wisconsin: Johnson down by 3. Trump down by 6.7
        North Carolina: Burr by 2. Trump down by 2.9
        Nevada: Heck +.5. Trump down by 1.5
        Arizona: McCain +16. Trump by 1

        Nevada is the only one where Trump is even kind of close and that is thrown off by a single tv station poll.

        The inescapable fact is that Trump is 5-10 points worse than the other Republican.

        This is actually an interesting measure of how truly radical Hillary Clinton is. Extremists are always going to recognize their political opposites. This is why Hillary Clinton cannot be president.

        There are different state laws about whose name can appear on the ballot after a certain cutoff period. A legal challenge is a certainty.

        The Democrats also brainstormed about what it would take to replace Hillary if she wasn’t healthy enough to continue. They found there would be numerous legal issues to doing so, even if she agreed to step aside.

  2. Alternative reasons for why the left is going all out, other than the race being close:

    1) Trump and what he represents terrify them so much that they’re behaving irrationally, and engaging in overkill.

    2) They are behaving rationally – they want to inflict such a defeat that somebody like Trump never rises again.


    October 15, 2016 at 1:15 pm

    • Everyone wants to win by as much as possible. They’re intensely anti trump but it’s not like they’re doing anything this election that they know will weaken them in some way but choose to do anyway. They’re just firing with everything they’ve got.

  3. Good analysis. One more point: The alliance of the left with big corporations and Wall Street has given them unlimited money but is also an Achilles heel. The world’s economy is being held together with ZIRP and NIRP and asset bubbles and spit and baling wire. When it collapses, as it has to, the left will be tied to those failures and caught between the donors needing bailouts and the angry populace that hates the bankers.

      • Anybody betting on monetary collapse to fix the people in power is delusional. All it will do is cause mass poverty. It has to happen, but it has to happen under Trump, who will make the tough choices necessary to keep 50 million people alive with 3 hots and a cot until the economy can fix itself within a two year period.

        For examples of how bad economies where people are starving don’t automatically remove evil from government see Maduro’s Venezuala, Stalin’s Holodmor, Polpot’s Cambodia. Oddly enough Hitler’s regime might be the only one where the common man benefitted and didn’t starve. Then again Hitler isn’t regarded as evil by the alt-right.. Hmmm…

        If the bastard had just stayed away from massacring Jews we wouldn’t have to be dealing with these leftist vermin and conservacucks. In a just world these disgraces would be getting spat on at their floor sweeper and sewage disposal grunt jobs. Maybe that’s why people used to be more disdainful of lower end dirty jobs? they were populated by failed leftist disgraces before fascism and rightism got destroyed. Now the dirty jobs are full of nice salt of the earth folks.

  6. If he’s going to win, look for the polls to start becoming more accurate and swinging in his direction about one week from now. This is when a lot of the firms start caring about their reputations enough to gradually start moving the numbers to where the result will be so that sudden changes over just a couple of days don’t look suspicious in the end.

    He’s also doing the right thing by attacking the media and the accusers and not laying down and taking it with just simple denials like any other Republican would. By discrediting the media and accusers, you make their case weaker and other “surprises” and allegations look weaker in the future. Eventually, the wind may be at his back enough during the last three weeks with either Wikileaks bombshells or another Hillary health scare that he maximizes his potential to take advantage of those opportunities. Scott Adams discusses this in his “Systems vs Goals” chapter in his “How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big” book, and there are also numerous examples of Trump doing this that he goes into detail over in “The Art of the Deal.”

  7. The people who want to believe there is some truth to Trump the groper like to bring up Jill Harth who filed a lawsuit 20 years ago (but then dropped it, but is apparently standing by it over the last couple of months since the NY Times story). But here she is being interviewed for the first time about it out of the blue last February. She accidentally lets out the truth but then has to get her lawyer to draft a followup a few weeks later to avoid federal liability. Really absurd. And this doesn’t even get to the friendly emails Harth was sending to the Trump campaign in 2015.

  8. Weirdly, Trump is actually closer to the left than any Republican president or candidate ever on many positions (acceptance of homosexuality, abortion, assistance for working mothers, etc.), so logically you would think they would be at least more tolerant of the idea of a Trump residence than of a Romney or Bush presidency.

    But I think you nailed it where you point out that Trump is diametrically opposed on the most fundamental, most sacred beliefs of the left, and attacking the sacred is like attacking the person who holds those beliefs. And anyone who does this must be absolute evil.

  9. The Cathedral is throwing the kitchen sink at Trump, so they seem pretty desperate at the moment. Random media slander that is instantly pushed out into the world. I’m happy to see Trump suing for example the New York Times about this; talk about trying to steal the election.

    As predicted before, it’s the media against Trump. And where is Hillary by the way? Getting her multi-day child blood transfusions so she can stand up again in time for the next debate? Maybe Trump should poke the corpse and see if it still twitches.

    I expect Trump is preparing a powerful case against immigration for the third debate, the conspicuously missing topic so far. The one topic that so far is too hot to touch for the globalists, leaving them with just pious sputterings and hysteric shaming. Expect the moderators to try to steer away from it. Maybe he should just introduce the topic on his own if they won’t.

  10. “And that will happen not because Trump is a genius, and not because Trump understands all of this and what he’s doing, but his simple 1950s values (before the left completely transformed our values) combined with his loud voice will turn the tide of public opinion and the power of government against these things.”

    In a way, Trump is a completely unlikely hero that happened to stumble into the perfect role in the perfect moment. It’s like how in the end, the ring of power wasn’t destroyed by larger-than-life, morally righteous warrior Aragorn, or even by the humble, self-sacrificing hobbit Frodo; it was the creepy, deplorable Gollum who wound up accomplishing this all-important task.

  11. He is a terribly unpopular candidate, but the party isnt.

    The Republican party and TruCons like you are in denial.

    Republicans are very unpopular among large areas of the US and among certain demographics.

    Those Demographics are INCREASING. The non White population is skyrocketing and with Amnesty that’s 15 million new Democrats.

    Plus with each new election cycle more old White Republicans die off and a new generation of voters becomes eligible.

    The Trucons can talk about their “conservative Constitutional values” but they don’t own the Constitution. The Supreme Court decides what is Constitutional and get ready for Hillary’s 4 Justices to start turning the court to the radical left.

    Republicans have already lost American culture, the media and academia. All run by liberal Democrats.

    They are now going to lose the supreme court and soon their control of congress will go the way of their control of California.

    Remember when Republicans were popular in California? Gone. You can’t blame that on Trump or his supporters.

      Its not the poor mestizo farmer or the guy trying to get his family out of the middle east so they dont turn into cannon fodder. They just want to have a quiet traditional family life.

      The people to blame are your white college student- they are destroying society. Your Lena Dunhams and Mark Zuckerbergs.

      Build a wall, Moat us off from Canada, stop all plane flights. Wont matter- the problem is here. The call is coming from inside the house.

      Every year families remortgage the house, take out loans to send their kids off to leftist indoctrination factories to produce more and more little Emma Sulkowicz’s. Your Occupy, BLM and Gamergates destroying society have nothing to do with immigrants. What is Trump doing about that? Oh yeah nothing.

      • The universities exist on the back of the middle class. So goes the financial ponies, so go the universities. They burn to the motherfucking ground without their litany of Federal Aid and illegitimate stock market gains. The poz itself is so heavily levered to the current believe system, that you can’t even begin to fathom how fragile the system is. That is why the entrenched sinecurial powers are so deadly afraid of Trump. He represents the chaos that will wake them from their sweetest dreams. He will tip over a domino just to laugh about it. This system is so fragile that moving one domino even one tenth of an inch causes the whole cascades to reverse itself.

        What will Trump do about the universities? Absolutely nothing. Just like he did nothing about Christianity, or immigration, or the bad trade deals. And yet, somehow, Trump has done more for the rights and dignity of Christians and their traditions in this country than any other candidate in the last 60 years. Even Ronny Raygun.

        Tell us Turambar, do you agree with Trump on the issue of abortion. You know, that women who get illegal abortions should go to jail? Does the truth hurt cuckold?

  14. Also Non Cuck Lion mistakes the left as the enemy.

    The real enemy are the globalists.

    Sanders was as against open borders and open trade as Trump. Without the olive branches of Cuckold tax policy, energy policy, finanancial regulation and cuckold healthcare ‘reform’.

    The people that make it to the top of either Repub or Dem have to kneel at the altar of globalism. You chose your poison, plutocrat taxes or plutocrat coolie electorate.

        Read the 5 para odd article in their propaganda organ.

        – See the way the Gamma creature frames HIlary as ‘campaigning to the left’ of Bernie on immigration in the last stanza when the whole article is about Bernie saying the Koch Brothers funds open borders.

        – The second clue is the phrase “a path to full equal citizenship,” is also inserted when theres no real logical need to put the establishment’s focus group tested wording in there (The word ‘equal’ is supposed to cajole the typical low or medium IQ liberal reader to support it without cognitive dissonance)

        – He got sloppy with the term “illegal immigrants” (it should read “undocumented migrants”/”dreamers” or some such). So I imagine the journalier is young and still apprenticing.

        In other words, the reporter sneaked his frame that open borders is left wing when Bernie tried to say it was right wing to the readers with some gamma semantic techniques. This is what Bernie was up against the whole time he ran.

        Very good.

        I imagine the reporter as a bottom quintile testosterone count.

        We say Trumps had it tough. But Bernie was completely ignored by the media and had Mass and a few other states robbed from him. The DNC also shared all his staffers requests with her and she got all the debate questions in advance. She also used Wall Street to bomb him 3 to 1 in tv ads. PLus the superdelegates. Many of this is all public knowledge.

        Now hes going around campaigning for her.

        In his darker moments, when he awakes, he ruffles his hair, stares at the ceiling and can’t bring himself to go to the bathroom to look at himself in the mirror. Every starry eyed young Bernie supporter he can’t even look at anymore and gives a weak smile back.

        He is living a personal hell. He’s a sellout for SYSTEMA. The very thing he started his political career against. His outcome is the greatest horror imaginable.

        At least Trump, if he is to go down, will go down not having learned to love Big Brother.

  15. You’re right that the left has become unhinged. I’ve stopped reading my usual online left-wing sources for what the left thinks. They’ve become so deranged and hateful that it’s too painful to read.

    Trump is still out there giving great speeches, saying all the right, things, and articles like the one you linked do provide reasons to doubt his attackers. If people were exposed to any of this, he might win. The problem is that none of this is making into public discourse. Unless you are a Trump supporter, you’d never encounter it. The MSM is all anti-Trump, all the time. CNN has been talking about the groping allegations basically 24/7 ever since they started. Liberals occupy an echo chamber, all convincing each other that Trump would execute Muslims, enslave blacks, and declare women property. And they completely control the MSM.

  16. I’ve said it before and I say it again: absentee ballots for Trump, like mine, will be “lost.” HRC will coast in the EC.

  19. The Left is extremely emotional and Trump pushes all their buttons. They were frothing at the mouth over the last debate and not just because Trump won, but because Trumpism causes them great emotional pain.

    LAT and Ras have Trump up. Are they right or are all the polls that have Trump way down right? It all comes down to turnout.

    • Reuters poll today has Hillary up 6 BUT the sample was Dems +12 and Women +22!!! Trump might actually be winning.


      October 15, 2016 at 7:07 pm

    • I agree with Otis about turnout. Especially this year with a uniquely volatile race:

      I suspect her lead is fragile for two reasons.

      One is the LA Times poll. Although I would not interpret their results to mean Trump can take victory, or anything, for granted, the LA Times poll is worth keeping in mind as a measure of turnout enthusiasm on account of its unique methodology. The poll is designed so that its results are highly sensitive to changes in which group of voters are likely to turnout on election day. Other polls usually fix their demographic profiles based on best guess calculations derived from previous electoral trends. The LA Times poll, on the other hand, has no fixed profile but instead estimates what the real-time voting profile would be if the election were today. In a volatile four-way race that remains close, with undecideds still between 5 to 1o percent of poll respondents, and where unusual factors and candidates are being processed by the electorate, a “free floating” system of demographic weighting may be the correct statistical approach to take.

      While there are those on the right that are religious and therefore stupid in both senses, I would say the Blank Slate is also a religion.

      Therefore, I correct myself. The left is just as stupid as the right but more seemingly intelligent about it.

      The Philosopher

      October 15, 2016 at 6:07 pm

      • The two groups are probably more or less the same. Let’s do the math:

        For our discussion, let’s ignore voter turnout and just focus on raw demographics.

        Left = 24% black (assume 50/50 politics split in the US). 36% Hispanic (what does this even mean?). 50% white of which 2% are Ashkenazi Jews. The right is.. 99% white 1% Ashkenazi Jews. Of the white share let’s say 18% (not percentage of, but actual numerical piece) are Hispanic. Let’s also assume a 5 point gap between right Hispanic and left Hispanic due to the presence of more European Cubans and other “Hispanics”.

        So the math:
        ((24% * 85) + (36% * 90) + (48% * 100) + 2% * 110)) = 101.9
        Versus Right
        ((81% * 100) + ( 18% * 95) + (1% * 110))* 50% = 99.2

        Left wins by a comfortable margin. Especially since here it is assumed the left wing white voters have same IQ as right wing. In reality most of left voters are filtered through college, which in itself is an idiot factory, but the prerequisites for getting in are higher IQ.

        The left’s variance levels are much higher. The right also has a MUCH higher median by this distribution (10 points!?). The median is probably a much better measure of who the common man will interact with, so the typical right individual will appear smarter than the typical left individual.

        I may have left out a detail or two, but I think this is more or less correct. Of course this fails to account for voter turnout, so this isn’t a measure of voter aptitude.


        October 16, 2016 at 11:44 am

  21. Simply put, Trump is a historically bad candidate. He’s a know-nothing. Trumpkins seem to assume this blowback is coming because the Clintonistas are afraid of the Donald. Trump’s scorched earth campaign comes from a place of desperation. It looks like the Clinton camp is just running up the score. The worst thing that can happen is Trump drops out.

    As for the left’s supposed triumph on a bunch of issues…
    Jonathan Haidt has said the left and right have different moral values. For liberals, all that really matters is fairness and whether or not someone is being harmed. For the right, fairness and harm are important, but they’re not the only things. Conservatives respect authority, sanctity, and in-group loyalty.

    A borderless, cosmopolitan world fits a liberal/libertarian outlook*, but maybe one of the reasons abortion remains a contested issue is because it can theoretically violate the harm tenant. Libertarians have long identified politically as closer to conservatives, but in some respects they are temperamentally liberal (e.g., Will Wilkinson).

    Haidt later added a sixth value of liberty/oppression.

      • Liberals don’t value anything except for destruction of old norms. Why do you think their agenda has gotten increasingly more deranged. Their endgame is radical individual autonomy. It’s the fulfillment of the childhood lord of the flies, kids rule grown ups drool, fantasy. As such they are properly called liberals.

        Their ideology is truly reactionary, but even there you can be reactionary in one direction or another. They choose left (chaos and entropy).

      Otis the Sweaty

      October 15, 2016 at 9:43 pm

    • The mainstream right wants open borders primarily for economic reasons (lower wages, greater competitiveness, economic efficiency, etc). The left wants open borders primarily to promote multiculturalism, which at bottom is an anti-white agenda aimed at white proles. They view white proles with contempt because they’re uneducated, narrow-minded racists who are the greatest impediment to the progressive agenda.

  23. The right fails to even go after low-hanging fruit.
    Obama is having to risk potential nuclear war with Russia because Russia or someone is doing a “60 Minutes” report showing the REAL Hillary and her machine. Think about that one; it is mushroom-cloud mind blowing.
    Bill is (from what I’ve seen) is documented flying around several times with someone accused of having underage sex hobby.
    Several times.
    Ask Hillary in speech if she was ever invited if not why not?
    Ask why both Hill and her VP can’t be seen in public. Show commercial of Hillary collapsing then show VP clips and say remember you are voting for President Kaine.
    Show commercials of Europe’s refugee hell and make the Hillary Merkel connection.
    Use the worse footage they have. This is hardball. Go Lee Atwater on them.
    Run commercials showing how much the Obama Flood will crush the states. His open door policy is about to trickle down or actually flash-flood many states with expenses not covered by the Feds. It is all coming conveniently after the election.
    The list goes on….

  24. LotB: The left thinks Trump is like Hitler.

    They said the same thing about GWB, even more strongly the second time around. Does the Left really think Trump (or GWB) is like Hitler, or do they just like pointing, sputtering, and name-calling.

    I stopped by my father’s house a couple of hours ago to see a Trump sign planted in his yard. I suggested he might want to take it down else some lefty lunatic might try to cause him or his property some harm. But he’s a stubborn 80-year old man who thinks he’s smarter than everyone else, so he won’t do as I suggested.

    October 15, 2016 at 6:48 pm

  25. I think the left is throwing everything at Trump simply because they hate us more than ever, not because he’s secretly doing better than the polls show. Same reason they’re increasingly overlooking things like civility and free speech to get what they want.

    The last few years have really seen a massive surge in social justice activism and online echo chambers. It explains the rise of both SJWs and the Alt-Right. Fact is, a lot of Americans vote based on bullshit like who sounds “mean”. I like to call it late stage democracy.

No way. White Men are TIRED of being belittled, scapegoated, plundered, and marginalized by elites, and by God Almighty for the first time in my life we see a leader, a real leader, standing up to it all and saying, we’re not gonna take it.

        There is a real chance, in a way that I wouldn’t have believed until this month, that if Trump loses, there is a non-zero chance he crosses the Rubicon and goes all-in. I’m pretty sure we are all watching capital-H history in the making right here.

Trump has run a fantastic campaign in the face of enormous odds. Does anyone really think the media would not have slandered a different Republican? Of course they would, they accused Romney of murder. The idiots who think some other Republican would be doing so much better than Trump are simply delusional. Trump is fighting the Clinton Machine and the corporate media, while at the same time having to contend with constant backstabbing and sabotage from party insiders, so he’s fighting on two or three fronts and that’s always hard but he is holding strong and radically altering the political landscape. If he doesn’t win, the key will be to purge all the disgusting backstabbers from the party and start fresh. In any case, he has changed American politics forever and we all owe him an enormous debt of gratitude for that.

      Thats not the case here. Trump isnt up and we arent talking exit polls. So this Brexit analogy means nothing.

      There have been 28 polls in PA since June. Trump is losing in 27 of them. The last one he lead in was Quinnipiac from the beginning of July.

      Are you really trying to say Trump is secretly ahead in PA? Who exactly is unhinged?

    Lion, don’t be so naive.

    The Republicans/GOPe are not the Right; they are controlled opposition. What is the difference between Hillary Clinton and Paul Ryan on the FUNDAMENTAL CIVILIZATIONAL issues? NOTHING! Both parties are funded by *slightly* different billionaires/Managerial Elite who have created this top-down revolution called globalism or “The Great Replacement.” Human fungibility among the masses, cheap labor, cheap votes, the destruction of the family, breakdown of morals, using the darker races as shock
    troops. . .RECORD PROFITS for CEOs and the politicians who require pay to play.

    The GOPe doesn’t care if it loses! It just gives Conservatism Inc. another chance to fire up the printing press to send stupid mailers out to “movement conservative” cucks who will write them more checks!

    The Left and the “Right” and BOTH think Trump is new Hitler! If the media hates someone, it should make you wonder.

    “You must understand, the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators.” -Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn


    October 16, 2016 at 12:02 am

    • They hated Russians.

      Wrong. The leading revolutionaries included a substantial number of ethnic Russians such as Prince Kropotkin, Nikolai Bukharin, Mikhail Bakunin, Alexei Rykov and Alexander Shliapnikov.

      Because Solzhenitsyn’s politics were those of a 19th century Russian Imperialist and because he deserves accolades for a variety reasons, I won’t hold his statement denying the pivotal role of ethnic Russians in the Revolution against him.

      You on the other hand aren’t a dissident but just a lowly coward and liar:

      Solzhenitsyn, Aleksandr:

      Among the leadership, the Central Committee of the Communist Party, at the beginning of the Revolution, all were émigré intellectuals who had returned, after the uprisings had already broken out in Russia, in order to carry through the Communist Revolution. One of them was a genuine worker, a highly skilled lathe operator until the last day of his life. This was Alexander Shliapnikov. Who knows that name today? Precisely because he expressed the true interests of the workers within the Communist leadership. In the years before the Revolution it was Shliapnikov who ran the whole Communist Party in Russia – not Lenin, who was an émigré. In 1921, he headed the Workers’ Opposition which was charging the Communist leadership with betraying the workers’ interests, with crushing and oppressing the proletariat and transforming itself into a bureaucracy. Shliapnikov disappeared from sight. He was arrested somewhat later and since he firmly stood his ground he was shot in prison and his name is perhaps unknown to most people here today. But I remind you: before the Revolution the head of the Communist Party of Russia was Shliapnikov – not Lenin.

    • That quote is so ridiculously on the nose (and absurdly false, if you take it to be about jews) that it jumps out at me as almost certainly fabricated. I can’t find a single reputable source that cites the quote although I also can’t find any explicit takedown of it.

    • I can’t find a single reputable source that cites the quote although I also can’t find any explicit takedown of it.

      Solzhenitsyn did downplay the role ethnic Russians played in the Revolution, although he did not collectively blame Jews for it in Two Hundred Years Together. But whatever flaws there were in his historical analyses the quote fakeemail referenced also strikes me as overly simplistic for it to be authentic.

  30. Great post Lion, the Left certainly grasp the risk of Trump to their overall agenda far better than many in the GOP. This was highlighted the other day by Paul Ryan tweeting something about the lack of balanced budgets under Obama. Of course, that is from a policy wonkish perspective, a perfectly valid gripe. But in the context of the wider battle it summed up the disconnect between the GOPe and the GOP base.

  31. The Alt-Right exists, because the left is smarter than the right.

    One thing is for sure and the left is at lost. Diversity doesn’t exist in arenas that foster Western intellectualism. I was at a video conference too long ago, and a White guy laments the fact that Greco-Roman Philosophy (and Philosophy in general) is too much of a White guy’s thing, with a paucity of black, female and Asian participants. Well yeah, what do you expect?

    • See JS. Peaceful coexistence is possible. Whites can find their own niche without blaming immigrants for STEM or tech jobs.

    • Interesting you bring up ‘white implicit bias’ in philosophy. At a lecture 2 years ago there was an intense argument from a Frenchman against the lecturer that saying Ancient Greece was the pinnacle of the ancient world was ‘racist’…how about India, Persia, China etc etc.

      The fact is Ancient Greece was the pinnacle of the ancient world, but modern Greece is a shadow of its former self, if that provides sustenance.

      If you allow ideology to hypnotise you, you shouldn’t be doing philosophy.

      • non-whites do not dispute the pinnacle of Western Civilization. they might bring up the achievements of India, Persia or China, but no doubt Ancient Greece still defines much of the Western World, which has not only surpass non-western civilizations, but has influenced their current states.

        Even Medieval Muslim intellectuals who had exposure to Greek and Indian science, would say the former was more superior, because the latter was grounded with a lot of superstition.

  32. And American liberals aren’t that bright. American liberals promote an intellectual and cultural desert…which leads us to our current predicament, which draws smart people to sites such as this blog.

  33. some people are too dumb to understand polling (the unhinged Turambar, etc.). they don’t just call 10,000 americans and ask who are you going to vote for. They are too cheap to use a good sized sample, so they use a much smaller sample like 500 people and then they adjust the numbers to get what they think the electorate will look like. Hence the oversampling of democrats in most polls. If their assumptions are wrong, the polls are not valid. There is also the “Bradley/Shy Tory” effect. When the media declares that any Trump voter is a racist, sexist, xenophobe, Islamophobe deplorable,etc. many people will not admit their support for Trump to the pollster. You’ll notice polls that have numbers like Clinton 42/Trump 39, that’s 81%. where are the other 19% of voters? are 19% gonna vote for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein? No way. Are there that many “I don’t know’s” at this point. Also unlikely. There are a lot of people leaning Trump who deny it to the pollsters.


    October 16, 2016 at 11:20 am

    • Bradley effect, is very rare, but I do think there will be significant Bradley effect in this election amongst white college graduates. Sadly, it won’t be enough to swing the election, as most of it will be concentrated in states owned by the Dems. One place I’d really like to see results from is Silicon Valley; I suspect there are lot of Volvos with Clinton stickers on the road, driven by people who would vote for satan himself if he’d protect them from H1Bs.

  34. For me I have been following the LA Times poll. It keeps the same people from the start. If clinton had such a bit lead it would show up there and it doesn’t. The only time she took a significant lead there was after the convention. These other polls are agenda polls. When the Fox poll surveys +4 DEMS over rep one week and then surveys+9 the next. There is something fishy going on. Why are they asking more dems than rep?

  35. “One wonders why the left simply doesn’t have the power to just assassinate Trump. Or maybe they do have that power and are just keeping it as a last resort if Trump wins the election. (Maybe you are thinking “that’s a crazy paranoid conspiracy theory!” But think about it. The left thinks Trump is like Hitler. If you could assassinate Hitler and prevent the Holocaust, wouldn’t you do it?)”

    That would be the Franz Ferdinand moment that would trigger a civil war.


    October 16, 2016 at 2:54 pm

  36. Rigged polls are back to a +4 Hillary lead today. In other words, unprecedented assault Trump took this past week has had no lasting effect and they are right back to where they started. We are going to win this thing!


    October 16, 2016 at 5:07 pm

  37. I’ve linked a good article, explaining why many of the current polls are likely to be incorrect.

  38. The left might be smarter than the right in some sense, but that’s not the reason they keep winning these battles. For the most part, the battles the left wins—and the means by which they motivate their base—are meaningless social issues that no one considers important, except symbolically. For instance, I doubt many conservative politicians give a shit about gay marriage itself. They’re opposed to it because they see it as this larger picture of unwanted social change where every little click on the radar takes huge significance. In itself, it’s off-putting at best…certainly not important enough to warrant the fuss that’s made over it.

    Some of the battles are more significant…like immigration and stuff…but the vast majority of the left’s victories and causes revolve around stuff that ultimately doesn’t matter. Basically, the left benefits from the fact that our society has a lot of strong feelings about relatively unimportant stuff on us, which we’re in the process of getting over…homosexuality might repulse you the same way it repulsed someone a hundred years ago, but by 2016 we have more or less figured out that life is inescapably hard and brutal no matter what, that homosexuality is largely an intrinsic trait, and we’ve just collectively arrived at the conclusion that we should give fags a break and even throw them a little bone…I think most decent people, liberal or conservative, can understand this. The fact of gay marriage alone isn’t gonna be what derails western civilization.

    One of the most frustrating things about being a conservative is having to watch politicians on your side choose to fight these battles over and over, never really attempting to leap-frog the left on one of these unimportant issues (that people would still like to see resolved). It seems like it would be so easy, doesn’t it? Just come out and say, “You know what? This issue really isn’t that important, this is social change that will probably occur one way or another…so not only are we going to steal this issue from the left, we’re gonna take even more drastic steps so that people who really care about this stupid issue will be better off with us.”

    Yet they continue to fight…and the democrats drag this stuff out as long as possible! Do you think they gave a fuck about gay marriage back in the mid-late ’90s? Hell no! They just didn’t want to blow their wad…they wanted to milk that shit.

    This brings me to something I’ve been thinking about all year…weed. At this point, the importance of weed as a political motivator simply can’t be overstated. It was a HUGE part of the movement behind Bernie. Clinton and the democrat establishment know this. Universal, state-by-state legalization of recreational marijuana is almost a given at this point, although it will take a good long time, if the democrats get their way. We can probably survive a Clinton presidency…what should REALLY worry the American right is the idea of dems being able to dangle this massive carrot in front of their ever-youngerer base for another 15 years while republicans wring their hands.

    The thing is, these meaningless issues lose all motivational power the moment that the struggle over them ceases.

    A few months ago, it would’ve been interesting if someone way up in the GOPe had struck a deal with Trump…we’ll stop fighting you, stop commenting on your campaign completely and just let you do your thing, if you do one thing for us in return…you gotta make a big speech where you come out and say, “You know what? I’ve been thinking about weed, and I think it’s okay if we let adults use it. Maybe some people would rather smoke a joint than get drunk or strung out on pain pills.”

    …and then promise full federal legalization of recreational as priority #1 the day he enters office.

    Sadly, at this point, I don’t think it would be possible, given the extent of Trump’s self-destruction…but it would’ve been a hell of an experiment.

    This isn’t to say that someone else on the right couldn’t still do the same thing. Remember this comment, Mr. Prediction…when all is said and done, weed will have been a very important issue. This is one time where a “pull the rug out from under the dems/steal their cause” approach is probably justified.

    PS) Why the fuck would Andrew Cuomo, solid dem, be so completely opposed to legalizing weed? Because NY is way down on the agenda. They don’t want to blow their wad.

    • Klambak,

      That is really not correct. The Left pushes these things precisely because they are destructive and precisely because they attack white people.

      Gay marriage is all part of that attack. First, it undermines patriarchy by short-circuiting a genetic line. If your son and daughter runs off with their gay partner, you are practically guaranteed not to have a biological grandchild. Second, it introduces gay norms and practices into heterosexual marriages. Gays are promiscuous. They are a perfect weapon in which to introduce no-fault open marriages, thus completing what no-fault divorce started. Mind you, gays should not be attacked or vilified, but that does not change the extent to which they are weaponized against whites.

      Weed is the same thing. Why would you want to create a society of lotus eaters? How is that beneficial? What’s next? Cousin marriage?

      Again, this all goes back to unraveling Western Civilization and the Church.


      October 18, 2016 at 1:36 pm

    • Where is the evidence that Democrats are going to win the presidency due to social issues? The kind of people who are voting on the basis on marijuana legalization are liberals. They would vote liberal based on other social issues and also economics – with or without the marijuana issue.

      Why don’t you just admit it? You don’t think social issues are “unimportant.” You just think social conservatism makes no sense and you want the Republican party to give it up. Like Trump you think socons have nowhere else to go and will just stay slaves on the right-wing and/or Republican plantation due to economics and foreign policy. But they won’t. Trump is fooling some of them now. But if he wins they’ll see once he picks SCOTUS appointees that there won’t be any Scalias or Rehnquists. They’ll feel betrayed. When the Left decides to start pushing for the legalization of polygamy (and you know it’s only a matter of time before they do) what will President Trump, a decadent plutocrat from Manhattan do except cave in by running away from the subject as much as possible while the Left convinces people that opposition to polygamy is “repressive” and “evil?”

      There is a serious clash coming in the Republican party over social issues. The desire to defeat Hillary Clinton is obscuring this conflict. But if Trump wins, Hillary won’t be the focus anymore.
