Donavan was a weak candidate, Trump should have thrown his support behind the [other] guido candidate, Michael Grimm.

* * *

Holy, I just learned that a month after the guido primary, in which Grimm was defeated by Donovan, Guy Molinari, for whom a spaceship was named in the TV Series The Expanse, and who supported Grimm, died.

He was the don of Staten Island politics. Somehow this news escaped me until now. A bad omen for the forgotten borough.

  1. So you’re blaming Trump for Donovan’s defeat instead of the guidos on S.I? The real headline of todays political news should be: LION FOREGOES GUIDO-BASHING -EXONERATES STATEN ISLAND WHILE BLAMING TRUMP.

    • Cause of death: white males

      Time: starting in the early 1800’s and accelerating as time went by.

      White men passed the immigration bills and did nothing about illegal aliens.

      White men had a hand in all the disastrous Supreme Court cases over the years that hurt whites.

      White men gave the federal govt more and more power.

      White men wasted trillions on wars and “defense” spending.

      White men totally screwed up health care giving us a ridiculous hybrid system that wastes a ton of money.

      I’m sure I could list more.

      • Cause of death: white males

        Well, the white males who built the country and its institutions have always been outliers vulnerable to depredations by their kin; and those kin coupled with the Other has proven deadly. Kind of like the guy who builds a gun and someone else uses the gun to commit crimes against him.

    • What are you saying? It’s 10 pm PST and Ds have a single vote lead in the House, an institution their worst projections gave them by 7 votes. Many of their victories were >1% margin. And they notably underperformed in Trump states, especially in the Midwest, where significant wins were necessary to advance their favored ‘20 narrative. They performed well in one Trump state, PA. In the few Trump states outside PA where the had 2 districts flip at least one of those was won by an >1% margin. In other words, the Trump electoral map held up remarkably well.

      This was the best year the Ds could hope for and Nationalists expanded their lead in the Senate, smote the cucks, survived the media Bolshois and monopolists leaving the Ds with one of the weakest, if not the weakest, House majority of my lifetime.

      This was an effective loss for the Hate Whitey/Bolshoi/Monopolist coalition of evil. The energy is not with them and their power is diminishing every day.

      Now to start emigrating more Europeans.

  4. NYT’s newsletter said though the Dems took the House, it wasn’t the sweep they were hoping for.

    Anytime NYT is unhappy is a good day for me.

  5. Taylor Swift for Phil Bredesen (lost)
    Oprah Winfrey for Stacey Abrams (lost)
    Beyonce for Beto O’Rourke (lost)
    Rihanna for Andrew Gillum (lost)
    T.I. for Ben Jealous (lost)

    And Trump for Tester head, which was his vengeance for the treatment of his doctor who couldn’t land VA position because of Tester dirty tactics and smearing .

    The only problem is the demography. Trump has to expelled the 30M illegals .

  8. The real reason Donovan lost is that Staten Island is becoming less white and less Republican. It is the island’s demographic shift that doomed Donovan.

    • What, in two years? White nationalists need to stop saying stuff like this. It’s an abdication of your responsibility to actually persuade people.

    • The influx of immigrants to SI are: illegal labor from mexico/ central america. They’ve taken over swathes of the north shore that were previously black (AA, not immigrant african). One assumes they don’t vote.

      Russians, who tend to be conservative.

      Muslims. I have no idea how they vote, if they vote. There’s been a huge influx over the past ~5 years.

      Haitians and african immigrants. The ones I’ve interacted with tend to be educated, employed, married and wacko christian religious. I once got a long lecture from a liberian guy on how I’m worshiping satan by letting my kids go trick or treating.

      Staten Island is the “uncool” borough but is logistically family friendly by comparison to other boroughs- nice detached homes, a lot of decent public schools, catholic schools, sports leagues, easy parking/ grocery shopping, parks. The people who come here by choice from other boroughs (as opposed to being dumped here by the housing authority) tend to be family oriented and aspire to middle class standards.

      Most of the rose volunteers I saw were white, a lot of them hipsterish looking.

      • “nice detached homes”

        You obviously are unfamiliar with Staten Island residintial archicture.

        Semi-attached houses, townhouses, two-family houses, that’s the norm in Staten Island.

      • The majority of SI neighborhoods have detached homes. Yes there clusters of townhouses/ condos and a few high rises/ projects but by and large houses are separate and have yards. Even in crumby north shore neighborhoods. Despite its blight there are gorgeous houses in St. George.

        Some older homes have been chopped up into apartments but they were built as single families.

        This is the only borough where you can get a detached home with a driveway/ yard for under a million.

      • “The majority of SI neighborhoods have detached homes. ”

        I lived there. The majority of houses are semi-attached.

        Only a a few older neighborhoods or wealthy neighborhoods like Lighthouse Hill, are the houses detached.

  10. Rose had a team of extremely aggressive volunteers on the ground here. That girl I mentioned who flipped my husband, she came to our door at least four times. I saw his door to door people as late as 4pm last night.

    • Proles vote for politicians where the genuine upper classes write checks to them.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

  11. As Staten Island goes, so goes America.

    Or maybe it’s California?

  12. The Donks took the NY state senate. If they manage to hold it this time past 2020 (a presidential election year) they will redistrict any guido districts away, especially if Rose hangs on in 2020 he will represent Staten Island and several neighborhoods in brownstone Brooklyn or Manhattan instead of Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst.
