Lion endorses Joe Biden for President

My endorsement of Biden is more about why you shouldn’t vote for Trump. Trump has totally failed at being president. When a national crisis came, in the form of a pandemic, Trump wasn’t, and isn’t, up to the task of leading the country. All he can do is post dumb tweets that disagree with his health agencies and and actually sabotage our nation’s failing attempts to deal with the crisis.

The best argument you can make for Trump is that Democrats are so bad that better a bozo like Trump in the White House than a Democrat. But the cost of a bozo in the White House is 170,000 dead from the virus, and America’s international reputation shattered. The hypocrisy of Trump supporters who railed on and on about how you shouldn’t vote for Hillary because four Americans died in Benghazi, but the same Trump supporters are totally unconcerned about 170,000 dead from the virus. And with Trump at the helm, 170,000 is likely to become 400,000 before he leaves office.

But what has Trump really done in office that makes him so much better than a Democrat? Trump promised to repeal and REPLACE Obamacare, but then he supported the standard Republican plan to repeal Obamacare and replace it with nothing. At least with Democrats in office, maybe Obamacare will be improved so it doesn’t suck so bad.

Trump lowered taxes for the top 1% and the biggest corporations. Yet all of the biggest corporations have gone liberal and they support Joe Biden. What was the point of doing that? Instead of doing anything to help the people who voted for him, Trump helped the people who hate him. People who’d rather pay higher taxes than see Trump in office for another four years.

Trump squandered his political capital pushing for the Obamacare repeal and tax cuts for the top 1% and the biggest corporations instead of getting the Republican-controlled Congress to pass legislation on immigration. Consequently, even though Trump did accomplish some stuff with immigration through executive orders, everything he did will be reversed as soon as he leaves office. The massive tax cuts are permanent, but the immigration restrictions won’t last very long past January 2021.

Trump supporters say the Joe Biden is senile, but in 2016 they said that Hillary Clinton was going to die from some mysterious illness any day, but she’s STILL ALIVE and in fine health. The Joe Biden being senile stuff is likely just the same sort of bullshit. And who’s to say that Trump isn’t senile? Alzheimer’s runs in his family. His bad behavior could be the early signs of Alzheimer’s. Better the sleepy senility of Joe Biden who will listen to his advisors than the bozo senility of Trump.

We are lucky that of all Democrats who could replace Trump, we are getting Joe Biden. Born to prole parents in 1942, Biden has the prole white values of the 1940s and the 1950s. There’s no way Biden actually believes any of the leftist nonsense he has to say out loud in order for his party to support him. There’s no better Democrat we could get than Biden. That’s the reason that Obama never supported Biden. Obama knows that Biden is a fake liberal.

  1. The title is misleading. Deliberately misleading? The DNC is positioning Kamala Harris to be president. She’s dangerous. Especially dangerous for white people. Better a bozo than a psychopath.

    Bad results any way u look at it

    • Mental health does not make a good issue to vote for President Trump. He is a narcissistic sociopath. His only redeeming qualities is that he is too lazy to accomplish much and is horrible at picking subordinates that can actually accomplish anyting.


      August 20, 2020 at 12:01 PM

    • This. A vote for Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris (who will probably complete his term) and the establishment wing of the Democratic party. It’s a vote for open borders, and liberal supreme court justices. If it had been Bernie or Warren, the silver lining might have been Medicare for all (or some version of it) but you’re not going to see that from Biden and/or Harris, who hold allegiance to Wall Street and Big Healthcare. Trump is a buffoon, but in an alternate reality in which, say, Barack Obama was president during Covid, he would have looked better, led with gravitas, and been made to look better by the media. But the pandemic would have unfolded in similar fashion and the outcome would have been more or less the same.

      • Why Medical for all is nonsense? It works very well in most developed countries where both the people and the government pays much less for medical treatment. The results are also better in terms of overall population health. I think Trump should change the medical system in his second term, it is one of the worst things in the US right now, not BLM or transgender toilets. Also, medical for all doesn’t have to mean no private system for people who want it, there are many examples around the world which work far better than the US system

    • Right. You are endorsing Kamala Harris for president. Biden is an Alzheimers patient.

      You probably see former Trump supporters as “flip-floppers.” I see current Trump supporters as flip-floppers. That’s what it’s required to defend him as he changes his mind on the fly. Just look at Ben Carson. He recently signed his name to an op-ed decrying Minneapolis’s zoning reform despite himself having previously spoken in favor of it:

    • Lion never supported Trump in the GOP primaries in 2015. After Trump won the nomination in 2016 his support was weak at best and mostly came out of party loyalty. He never liked Trump’s presidency constantly bitching and whining 24/7 even before the current state of affairs. He has never appreciated Trump’s efforts and sadly Trump stacked his administration with GOP types like Lion who sabotaged, betrayed, hoaxed, and intrigued against him. Now the gloves have come off both from Lion openly endorsing Biden and Trump purging the US federal government and GOP party structure from top to bottom. Lion claims that Trump fans don’t believe “the buck stops here” in Donald Trump well that depends but one thing I’m sure of is that the people will decide who is right and wrong in a few months. When Trump is reelected is Lion going to apologize?

  4. Trump is a wartime president and America is at war. As someone who is educated as a lawyer you ought to know disputes over the facts are common and I dispute the idea that Trump is responsible for preexisting conditions. America has been in a massive downward spiral since the 2000 presidential election. Trump is by far the best president of the 21st century aggressively undoing the damage of Dubya and Obama.

    Tax cuts are great and are a standard part of the GOP platform. Have you ever heard of a political coalition? The idea that proles should throw a tantrum because Trump supports a few policies that help rich people is absurd. I’ll also take a one percenter over most so called “social/economic justice” activists any day. The pandemic is actually proving the motto get woke go broke with companies like Disney in total collapse. The day of reckoning has arrived for many and the age of failing upward in corporate America is now over.

    Yes people have to fight for political power and institutional dominance. Welcome to politics. The legislature creates laws, the executive enforces law, and the judiciary interprets law. The executive branch is FAR more important than any other because the executive controls institutions overseeing budgets, appointments, careers, jobs, promotions, and contracts. Once policy is enacted and things set into motion they cannot be easily undone. The judiciary is directly shaped by the executive branch as well.

    Biden is certainly senile I say that as someone who liked him back in the day. It’s really sad to see how far he has fallen. Even in the rigged fake news polls Trump and Biden are tied which in reality means Trump is ahead likely by a lot in key swing states. The Democrat convention was also a total disaster, massive dud, and ratings failure with the show dropping 27% compared to 2016 on day one and now dropping 48% on day two compared to its already weaker start. Who knows how awful day three will be but taped speeches, no crowds, empty slogans, and BLM propaganda aren’t big hits with the public.


    August 20, 2020 at 9:28 AM

  5. So you think Biden would have dealt with the pandemic any better? He has said nothing to show that. His biggest statement about it is that he is hiding in his basement for the campaign.

    And you complain that Trump’s immigration policies will be reversed by Biden. Yes, a Democrat win means open borders. A vote for Biden is a vote for open borders.

    Biden was obviously much less competent than Trump even before Biden went senile. Just watch them. No secret medical knowledge needed. It is plain to see that Biden is not able to do the job.


    August 20, 2020 at 9:32 AM

    • “So you think Biden would have dealt with the pandemic any better?”

      Yes, absolutely he would have. He would not be sabotaging the nation’s efforts to control the virus.

        August 20, 2020 at 5:34 PM

      • That’s ridiculous. The Wuhan-Democrat virus is a joint operation between China and the Democrat Party, of which Biden is a bagman and go-between for both. The Chinese engineer a pandemic, and the Democrats spread the pandemic by moving Covid patients into nursing homes and by generating fabricated statistics about the seriousness of Covid. Furthermore, they engineer economic destruction by shutting down their economies and by unleashing rioters in major urban areas. Medical authorities are being used to crash the economy in place of the Federal Reserve, which was the previous entity used for such transitions.

        This criminal mafia created this problem, then gathered extraordinary powers over people to “deal” with the problem…and you think it is all going away once Biden is elected? No, they want to maintain this Wuhan-Democrat “New Normal” forever.

        Trump needs to be re-elected. This is not just about the shortfalls. Democrats want to actively punish this country once they are in office. That cannot be allowed.

      • He would, but the baloney pandemic is pimple on the ass of a flea compared to this:

        To get a sense of scale on the refugee cap differences between Biden and Trump, since everyone agrees the # of DACA recipients (~700,000) is problematic

        We would get approximately one DACA’s worth of refugees every:

        – 6.5 years under Obama
        – 5.5 years under Biden
        – 39 years under Trump

        Let that sink in.


        August 21, 2020 at 9:21 PM

      • map,

        Redfield never worked at the CDC before his appointment by Trump. Dr Redfield was appointed because he was an abortion hardliner who would make the social conservatives happy.

        The testing failure is due to the CDC applying the Ebola model to Covid-19, the use of 8a minority contractors, and the failure to be good managers. When Covid-19 first started, it took 7 days for the CDC to get a team to the first nursing home hit in the U.S.

        People work in public health even though it is low paying because it is a 8 to 4 job M-F job with little stress. When put into a stressful situation, it failed.


        August 22, 2020 at 9:47 AM

    • Biden’s advisors would not have been as stupid as Trump Advisors. IN addition, a Biden Administration would not have so many mixed messages and would not step on their message as much as the Trump White House has stepped on messenging and varied between messages.


      August 20, 2020 at 12:07 PM

      • Biden would be building a gulag archipelago and the media would be hiding it from you.


        August 21, 2020 at 12:27 AM

      • Yeah, but isn’t what you just described essentially the Cuomo Administration in NY? And they have produced the worst Covid results of anyone in the country. Florida has produced 1/3 of the deaths NY has following Trumpian policies despite having a larger percentage of at risk seniors. And they’ve done it without shuttering their entire economy.

        I agree a Biden Administration would have less mixed signals since unlike Trump, Biden (or more accurately, the people Biden’s Administration) would only hire far Left, Woke Globalists. But I fail to see how that would be a good thing.


        August 21, 2020 at 7:45 AM

      • Florida peaked much later than New York and learned many lessons from Nwe York. I doubt if Gov Desantis had anything to do with better healthcare or successfully locking down the retirement communitieis. However, ON Aug 21, Florida had 121 deaths and the State of New York had none. How long to you it will take Florida to get to no deaths?


        August 22, 2020 at 9:43 AM

      • Didn’t Fauci say we are not Taiwan basically meaning that you cannot get compliance with good policy from a large fraction of the USA population.


        August 20, 2020 at 5:36 PM

        The fact that Democrats are fighting Trump so hard is why Trump needs to be re-elected.

  7. It’s probably a good sign that the Obamas don’t actually seem to like Biden at all. If reports can be believed, they haven’t used their post-presidency 9 figure wealth to donate a dime to him so far, Biden is reported to have said they “didn’t lift a finger” to help him until the DNC, and it seems they were disappointed in his being the nominee.


    August 20, 2020 at 9:52 AM

    • Because Obama knows that Biden isn’t a true-believing liberal.

      Lion of the Blogosphere

      August 20, 2020 at 10:08 AM

      • But his handlers will be true-believing liberals. And he really does seem to have Alzheimer’s. Maybe Trump does too, but it is not near as advanced. Harris may end up becoming president in the first term. We know for certain that she doesn’t have any prole white values of the 1940s and the 1950s.

        Open borders and free health care will be a complete disaster. (see Canada and the UK).

        I admit Trump says a lot of stupid things especially about covid, that make him seem dumb. But the media grossly exaggerates, for example claiming he said covid was a myth, which he never did. And at least he has only at most 4 more years. Imagine how many Indian programs Harris will bring in in 8 years. She is half Indian. I wonder what her attitude to Canada is. She lived in Montreal for 4 or 5 years. Moved there when she was 12 and her mother got a job at McGill. Her parents divorced when she was 7.

        Her father can’t be more than half black. He looks whiter than Obama.


        August 20, 2020 at 2:33 PM

      • Rosenmop,

        Trump does not say stupid things. He avoids the mannerisms and clichés of over-educated fools who were trained to misperceive reality and then use their credentials to spread that misperception far and wide.


        August 21, 2020 at 12:59 AM

    • They don’t like him because Obama knows Joe is corrupt personally (look at how his sons make money) and Joe is also seeing the first ‘green shoots’ of Alzheimer. You then have to assume that certain ethnic minorities would then be driving the bus under Biden.

        If we’ve learned anything from 2020, it’s that anything is possible, but that scenario you describe seems unlikely. More likely a return to Democratic Party domination for decades; similar to what happened after the election of FDR. The Democrats seem to have cracked the code on staying united (it’s whitey’s fault). Although if there is anything to your scenario, we’ll probably see it in California first, which is now where the rest of the country will be in about 20 years.

      • You’re budget stuff is all nonsense. The key to understanding Trump is that he is not an austerity junkie. His goal is not to deny you access to resources, which is all the budget/deficit/debt/spending nonsense is. It is the flipside of the Democrat argument, which seeks to deny you access to electricity, coal, gas, oil, and nuclear. Both parties push austerity programs in nonsensical ways, just through different things.

        Trump does not do that.

        You will never win arguing for a balanced budget.

        1. The Democrats continuing to alienate people with woke stuff.

        2. Republicans being able to provide a credible platform able to appeal to both prole and middle-class whites, and both secular and religious whites.

  9. what about the 20 million illegal immigrants that will become citizens under Biden? After that there will only be two democrat parties forever, going ever more leftward each day. Trump only buys you four more years, but it would help. And who knows what he’d do if he wasn’t worried about re-election. I think he’d get even more done.


    August 20, 2020 at 10:43 AM

  10. Lion, this is a huge mistake.

    Trump’s greatest value is in destroying the credibility of the press. He is the only Republican president in recent memory that was sufficiently combative to fight the hard the left.

    He has given us plenty of federal judges and Supreme Court justices.

    He is the only one — the only one — willing to do or say anything in favor of immigration restriction.

    His handling of the pandemic is certainly mixed, but he still preserved the economy to a degree we are not seeing in most of the world, especially Europe (with few exceptions).

    I know you’re not persuadable, but I don’t want readers to see your post and be discouraged from voting for Trump. If Trump loses, this country is over.


    August 20, 2020 at 11:05 AM

    • “If Trump loses, this country is over.”

      To me, this is the wrong way to look at it. You should vote for Trump *especially* because it looks like he’s going to lose. Politicians must see that right-wing populism has a loyal, enduring base that can serve as the foundation for a political coalition. That will have consequences that go beyond this election, beyond Trump.

      Sorry, this is loony tunes. What Trump did do is prevent the kind of sharp shock that Europe had in March, at the expense of longer term damage. Since then most of Europe is on a steady path to recovery and the US is flailing. Life in Europe right now is much better than the US. Expect the gap to get even worse in 2021, regardless of whether Biden or Trump is President, because of chronic unemployment, uncertainty about the virus and suppressed consumer demand. We are also probably in for a nasty bout of inflation. Trump will always be a disaster for the economy because he is incapable of thinking more than three months into the future. Biden combined with a Republican Congress is the optimal answer for the economy.. Which is at least likely in 2022, if not 2020.

  11. A vote for Biden because of the failings of Trump is, as the old saying goes, shooting oneself in the head in an effort to deal with a headache.

    Also, it doesn’t matter much who Joe Biden is or what he used to believe. If he is elected, he will be a figurehead and the power of the executive branch will go to a cabal of insane vindictive radicals who hate and want to ruin everyone who comments here.


    August 20, 2020 at 11:11 AM

    • If Trump manages to eke out a victory while losing the popular vote by 5 million or more votes, the Republicans will lose so many Senate, House, and state seats that wit will not be worth it. Trump has been so bad that DEmocrats will be in charge of redistricting in several states that Republicans controlled in 2010. Those Democratic Party controlled states know how to redistrict Repubicans out of seats while not violating in voting rights laws.

      It would be better if Biden won but the Republicans retained control of the Senate. That why there are reason to vote for Republicans in 2022.


      August 20, 2020 at 3:34 PM

      • Ridiculous. The Republicans lost the House because 40 Republican incumbents decided not to run, while their replacements were busy running against Trump. This was the NeverTrumper gift of Paul Ryan.

  12. Did you not see Mark Krikorian’s column explaining that any new Dem prez can now with a stroke of the pen create a permanent leftist majority? Like it or not, Trump is the only thing keeping at bay the commie revolution.

    • Sad to see Lion falling for this line that Biden’s not that bad because he’s not really a leftist. It doesn’t matter what Biden believed 30 years ago, or that his heart might not actually be in the the SJW stuff now. He’s going to give in to all the SJW stuff because that’s where the zeitgeist is going.

  14. If the Democrats continue to hold up additional funds for proles so they can’t pay their bills and smoke a joint via unemployment benefits and stimulus checks, I expect Trump to make his move and win. No provisions for food, no money for frivolous consumption and it doesn’t matter what party represents the people at the end of the day, if they hold up money where they are broke.

    Ok, what, who's this again?

    August 20, 2020 at 12:09 PM

  15. Trump’s failure to deal with the Covid-19 crises is a symptom of Trump’s complete unfitness for office.

    Trump surrounds himself with mediocre people who are intensely loyal to him because they know that no one else would ever hire them at that level. The loyalty test people must pass to work for Trump is they must be willing to lie for Trump in public even when the audience knows they are lying. Michael Cohen explained how the Trump Org worked. Everyday you scanned the media to see what Trump is saying and then you repeated whatever the story is, even though you know it is untrue.

    This fire hose of lies is not a good business strategy, which is why so many of Trump’s businesses ventures failed, but it is even worse when you try to run a government. Trump has been frustrated that the government did not operate that way. Trump has been working hard at removing or silencing the competent people and replacing them with Trump loyalist that will just parrot whatever Trump is saying. Trump makes decisions by the seat of his pants. He may have some reasonable instincts in the real estate business, but dealing with the problems facing the government, he is totally lost and over his head.

    When told about Covid-19 in China, Trump’s concern was how this would effect his re-election. Trump feared that if government officials gave warnings to the public, it would cause the stock market to tank and that would hurt his re-election chances. He decided to unleashed the fire hose of lies, trying to deal with a pandemic as a political problem rather than a public health problem. Trump completely failed to understand that the government had to deal with the public health problem first. Now he is unwilling to admit any of his mistakes and is just trying to lie his way out of the disaster he created with magical thinking like one day the virus will just disappear.


    August 20, 2020 at 12:12 PM

    • NASDAQ and S&P hits all time highs and we are worried about Trumps handling of covid. ABSURD!! Trump is free to Fu*k up covid handling for all I care. Even if he kills 350,000 to COVID he can do whatever he wants as long as economy is going up gangbusters. 😁


      August 20, 2020 at 5:42 PM

      • The stock market is not the economy. Right now there are 30+ million unemployed in the USA. The economy has been kept a float by enhanced unemployment benefits that just ran out because Trump, the Senate Republicans and the House Democrats could not agree on how to extend them. (Actually, Trump and the Senate Republicans could not even agree on a proposal.)

        The economy is not going gangbusters, it is badly wounded. I don’t make stock market predictions but I expect sooner or later the stock market will adjust to reflect the damage that has been done to the economy.


        August 20, 2020 at 10:09 PM

      • Walmart had a blowout quarter. So did Target, Home Depot and Lowe’s. It’s not just tech. Main street companies are taking it in. I know republitards like to talk about small business blah blah. But lots of companies are reporting blowout numbers. Economy is doing great.


        August 21, 2020 at 3:07 AM

      • Democrats are holding up any unemployment funds and stimulus checks that proles need in order to stimulate the economy. It isn’t Trump’s fault. He passed his EO to mitigate some of the problems. I expect him to throw in more “emergency” money and put the blame on them for hurting their constituents. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want to pass anything unless it’s a comprehensive spending program, but some of her fellows see trouble on the horizon, that Democrats will be voted out, if their constituents don’t get their relief money.

        Ok, what, who's this again?

        August 21, 2020 at 8:34 AM

    • Trump was handling the Wuhan-Democrat virus on January 29, when he assembled a Covid Task Force. This was the same day Pelosi was busy with her impeachment.

      Trump was taking Covid seriously when Cuomo was calling Trump racist against Chinese, riding the New York subways and Pelosi was demanding we hug Chinese people.


      August 21, 2020 at 1:25 AM

    • Trump is a multi-billionaire who fucks supermodels and was the establishment’s favorite son for decades. He hates mediocrity and dislikes it even more in his own children who he demands much from. His administration was crippled early because apolitical institutions were misused to push the numerous hoaxes which you supported. Trump also hired too many smart, talented, experienced, and driven people all of which had major egos which clashed in a series of endless personality conflicts. Trump is doing the right thing now by stacking his administration with loyalists, allies, supporters, and friends then backing them fully. It’s like dummies just now realized the Trump administration should actually have Trump supporters in top positions. Meanwhile he’s promoting youth, youth, youth and getting rid of all the geezers at every level replacing them with newer, younger, fresher, and loyal people all of which is within his rights. The president commands the executive branch not you.


      August 22, 2020 at 10:23 PM

      • I think you need to wake up and smell the coffee. The best and the brightest are never going to work for Trump. Trump wants to be surrounded by sycophants who constantly praise him. Trump can only get mediocre people to do that.

        “Trump is doing the right thing now by stacking his administration with loyalists, allies, supporters, and friends then backing them fully.”

        You have this all backwards. Trump never backs other people. Trump requires people working for him to be personally loyal to him, to cover for him, to lie for him.

        The question is who does the federal government work for? Would you rather see a federal government where the employees pledge their loyalty to Trump or one where they pledge their loyalty to the American people?

  16. How does this effect Lion’s presidential ambitions?


    August 20, 2020 at 12:36 PM

  17. I agree with Lion that Biden would have handled the pandemic better. I imagine he would have maintained Obamas pandemic plans and not disbanded the pandemic unit. I also suspect he would have been a bit more business unfriendly by making the lockdown longer.

    The Philosopher

    August 20, 2020 at 12:51 PM

    • The lockdowns were done by the states, not by the federal government. Remember when President Trump talked about lifting them and everyone had to explain that he did not have any authority in the manner. What should have been done is much tighter control at the border instead of worrying about the short term revenue of the tourism industry. When the SXSW festival in Austin was cancelled by the organizers and not by government, everyone should have gotten the message.


      August 20, 2020 at 4:05 PM

      • And the blue states still had a higher covid death rate per 100,000 people than the states that did not lock down.


        August 21, 2020 at 1:27 AM

      • New York was hit second after the state of Washington. The State of Washington has done better than any of the red states in the South even when they had less information to use to make decisions. Florida, Georgia, and Texas knew what was coming and still managed to screw it up. Also, no one in New York was saying that old people need to die for the benefit of the economy like the idiot Lt Gov. of Texas.


        August 22, 2020 at 9:51 AM

  19. Trump hasn’t changed at all in four years, so you must have.

    I can’t believe you’re still bringing up Covid-19. It’s done with. It’s following the path of every respiratory illness, right on cue. If Trump had listened to his instincts, we would have followed the Swedish model, had no economic catastrophe, and had roughly the same death rate.

    And you’re bringing up how people predicted HIllary would die? So what? People predicted Bob Dole would die in 1996 and he’s still alive. Why don’t we harp on that? Look how wrong all the Democrats were!


    August 20, 2020 at 3:12 PM

  20. We needed to be proactive on the virus very early on, back when it was only in Wuhan. I remember what it was like back then. Neither political party was taking it seriously and normies across the political spectrum were in deep deep denial. Most of my FB friends seem to be liberal. When I wrote anything about the coronavirus they would laugh at me.. “Don’t tell me you are one of those people who think it’s real”. Now they constantly post about Covid and how bad Trump and Republicans dealt with it.

    I recall pretty early on Trump did some kind of travel ban with China. It was too weak but he did something. Democrats hated this and thought it was unnecessary and racist. I’m not so sure Democrats would have dealt with this any better. Like most Republicans it took them too long to believe the virus was real.

    August 20, 2020 at 4:14 PM

    • If the Democrats had been in charge they would have held back on lockdowns too because it would have been their economy, not Trump’s. With Trump in charge, they were free to wreck the economy and pass all the blame to Trump. We are going to be suffering from the economic aftereffects of the lockdown a lot longer than we’ll be dealing with the aftereffects of the virus.

        It’s an opinion and a non testable one since we can’t have a do over and rerun this. However it’s not based on nothing; it’s based on how the Democrats reacted to the George Floyd protests. Suddenly the virus didn’t matter as long as your peacefully rioting and looting. Same thing for Europe too by the way. I’m still waiting to hear the science on that.

        Mike Street Station

        August 24, 2020 at 6:13 AM

    • Yes the virus/healthcare crisis is very real and many didn’t take it seriously but healthcare has been underfunded, neglected, and atrophied for years/decades now. Public health is one of the most basic functions of government along with physical security and safety. The authorities have failed at all levels for a very long time. The lockdowns were good but Trump’s actions on sealing the border, ending travel to Europe, stopping illegal immigration, and freezing legal immigration were wise, necessary, proactive, and years ahead of most. Recent events have validated nearly everything Trump stood for including a new healthcare vision for America. As for the economy it was good for a while under Trump but the recovery was also very fragile. A better economy will be built going into the future but the age of excess is over and after two massive economic collapses within a decade the future will be uncertain.


      August 23, 2020 at 12:39 PM

  21. Democrats have been much worse on the pandemic, if an honest accounting is possible. The most deaths on the planet per capita were in Democrat New York City within Democrat New York state. Also New Jersey which is an extension of NY.

    Forcing nursing homes to take in COVID patients by Cuomo and the Dem governors in PA and Michigan was the single worst policy in the entire pandemic, anywhere in the world.

    And then Democrat controlled New York seeded outbreaks across the entire country:

    The most effective Federal policy would have been to shut down all road and air travel to and from New York in February but this would have been politically untenable.

    New York ‘beat’ Corona by basically reaching herd immunity. Cuomo thinks he is a genius to because COVID burned itself out. Well it burned through Florida as well but with less than 1/3 the deaths. And then after the fire already burned through, they shut down the City permanently, after the horse had already left the barn.

    I was able to locate a video of Cuomo and DeBasio taking out New York City with permanent shutdown after the virus had already run its course:

    Hopefully it was so all quick that New York City didn’t suffer much.


    August 20, 2020 at 4:20 PM

    • NYC is no where near herd immunity. However, since Covid-19 spread due to jet setting super spreaders, NYC was going to be hit hard early. Remember when New Rochelle, NY was hit hard. Also, NYC had Ultraorthodox Jews that help spread the disease but were too politically connect to be controlled. The bad news in NYC was when the zip code data was released and the highest concentration of infections were the poor immigrant neighborhoods near LaGuardia Airport. When Covid-19 went from super spreaders to community spread in poor neighborhoods, NYC was going to be hit very hard.

      Also, if you look up the facts on the nursing homes, every states has returning/sending infectious elderly to nursing homes/specialty nursing centers because Medicare would not pay for hospitalization of someone who was infectious but not in need of hospitalization. However, the states tha were not hit early had a chance to do a much better job like Texas, Florida, and Arizona but the Republican governor in those states refused to learn many lessons from NYC, NJ, Conn, or Mass.


      August 21, 2020 at 10:30 AM

      • The narrative that blue states did better is straight bullshit.

        They did worse. NYC, NJ, Conn, and Mass had the highest death rates. But more specifically it was blue counties everywhere that were the centers of outbreaks.

        When you control the narrative nothing matters. Most of the hate, most of the violence, most of the intolerance and virtually all murders in this country are committed by Democrats and yet the left can pretend to be unifiers because they control the narrative.

        The second wave came from the protests, but it didn’t matter. Cases were dropping across America until the protests and then they shot up everywhere as a blindingly obvious result of people congregating en masse everywhere for weeks on end but the media has nothing to say on this because it doesn’t conform to the narrative.


        August 21, 2020 at 9:06 PM

    • Apparently, Chassidim did not achieve herd immunity. Yakov’s neighborhood of Borough Park has seen a rise of Covid-19 infections.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

      August 21, 2020 at 3:28 PM

    • Speaking of Cuomo, who took a hardliner stance that he will not accept Trump’s EO for funding of additional unemployment benefits doled out to proles hurting for money, he decided to cave in and lose face by opting into the program. Now, if he was smart, he would borrow more money to match the $600 previous Federal amount that expired at the end of July. Trump is only providing $300 per week this time around, but states have the option to increase it if they want, which they can seek from the Feds again.

      Just laughable of Cuomo who initially called it laughable.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

      August 21, 2020 at 9:51 PM

  22. LOTB: “The Republican Party will go the way of the Whig party, and the Democratic party will eventually split into two parties.”

    The first half of the statement I agree with, the second not so much. Once they have achieved a de facto one party state, the Democrats will do everything they can to defend it. They’re not likely to do anything outlandish like outlawing opposition parties, but they’ll try to maintain their grip on power by bribing the different factions within the party not to leave.

    If signs of a real fissure emerge and a faction tries to break off and form a new party, then I think what you’ll see are a series of moves intended to throw sand into the gears: secretaries of state playing games with election rules, pressuring financial institutions and credit card processors not to work with the breakaway faction, bans from social media, and of course endless media hype questioning the legitimacy of the breakaway faction, complete with the usual accusations of racism, misogyny, and all the other garden variety bigotries they can imagine.

    • I think the Democrats and their allies will use cancel culture, access to higher education, two minute hates, and their control of the meida to maintain the one party state. When 99% of Ivy Leaguers liberal Democrats, there will be no one to staff an opposition party other than nut cases, grifters, or single issue losers.

      See the California of today for what the future will look like for the rest of the U.S. Remember, non-Hispanic white fertility is well below replacement and will continue to go lower given the coming one party state.

        I think California is almost EXACTLY what the future of the US looks like. Democratic Party and Leftist/Woke ideology dominate, Republicans reduced to basically a small rump opposition party that is mostly irrelevant. And the most difficult part of the identity politics to control, Asians vs Blacks, seem to be locked in.

      • San Diego is a high end, low crime, white majority, and GOP controlled major city/metropolitan area in California perhaps the only of its kind outside of Florida. San Diego is also a border city yet has little to no illegal immigration enjoying the protection of the federal government from extra ICE enforcement to an actual border wall. It’s great to be rich and politically powerful because you basically get whatever you want.


        August 23, 2020 at 12:49 PM

      • Eradican – As I said over and over before, Florida is garbage of course.

        A comparison of Parkland, South Florida vs San Diego, Southern California, the latter city has higher home values and nicer women, not to mention, much better climate, which is the reason why the other things are better. Parkland boasts a higher median household income, but so does Staten Island comparing to certain parts of Manhattan.

        My stance is that SWPL types from the Northeast who want to snowbird in the colder months would relocate to Southern California, especially San Diego. Florida is just for proles. The Republican types who live in Santa Barbara and parts of San Diego are the Koch Bros Republicans, not the smelly, overweight, dumbsters that one finds in most Reddy States and Reddy Regions like Staten Island.

  25. No one supported Trump more than me. But I’m bitterly disappointed by his performance. Don’t misunderstand. I don’t blame him for all the lies the media told about him conspiring with Putin. And I don’t blame him for not being able to pass legislation when the GOP had such a slim senate majority stymied by McCain’s “NeverTrump” coalition not to mention the democrat #resistance. I do, however, blame him for sitting around tweeting insults instead of doing his job.

    Not that it would have made any difference with Covid. Any chance of a competent US response vanished with 100 million 3rd world migrants. Do you honestly think blacks and hispanics are going to stay home when we can’t even get white college kids to stop throwing parties? And why do you think it was so bad in NY anyway? Because rich globalists brought it back from Europe then spread it to the rest of the country. Louisiana had Mardi Gras, Florida had Spring Break, and the rest of the country had hundreds of thousands of criminals rioting and looting. Disneyland is still open for crying out loud. And you blame Trump for this??? Unless Trump declares martial law, states are run by governors not the president. And they’re not going to listen to Trump.

    Listen, America is not New Zealand or Japan. Thanks to the left pushing open borders for the last 70 years, America has become Brazil. And this is how Brazil handles a pandemic. It is what it is.

    As for the election, Trump is toxic. I wish he had stepped aside and let someone else run. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen because he probably has some type of personality disorder. Regardless, I still support Trumpism even if I no longer support Trump. Basically, we have to vote for the candidate whom we think will do the least damage.

    You’re angry about healthcare, taxes and Covid so you want to vote for Biden. But I don’t think voting for Biden is going to make any of those better. Regardless, that’s the past and I’m concerned with the future. The Dems motto is “Never let a crisis go to waste.” I don’t know what form this will take. But I’m sure it will include lots of things we don’t want. Otherwise, they would have told us what their agenda was… and they haven’t. Plus, they’ll not only have the white house but both houses of congress. So they’ll have free reign to pass whatever they want. And I suspect one of the things they’ll pass is an amnesty to give themselves a permanent majority. I also suspect that if the Dems learn they can win by demonizing whites that they’ll double down on that strategy in future elections.

    Are you really going to vote for that?


    August 20, 2020 at 6:02 PM

    • Trump has never been a conservative his platform was basically returning America to the 1990s. I appreciate your past support for Trump but you’ve always been a massive neocon just like Lion. I wonder if your present split with Trump has anything to do with that. You always disliked his foreign policy views despite supporting his domestic agenda. Unfortunately foreign policy effects domestic policy like when the US toppled Latin American governments in the 1980s and then invited refugees to settle in America where one of them an illegal alien from El Salvador assaulted women in and around the DC area and was the primary suspect in the murder of Chandra Levy.

      Donald Trump is indispensable from Trumpism. Good luck finding another multi-billionaire to stick up for you ungrateful cunts. Maybe you expected something unrealistic but I got what I voted for and Trump’s second term will be a lot more like what was promised in 2015/2016. The US federal government is undergoing a massive purge at all levels together with the GOP structure from the national body all the way down to the local district level. Trump is dismissing, firing, retiring, and removing anyone who opposes him as well as their subordinates, associates, and colleagues. Meanwhile he’s replacing people in top positions with loyalists, allies, supporters, and friends while promoting new people within these institutions as way to dominate them from top to bottom. It’s long overdue.


      August 23, 2020 at 3:12 PM

      • 1- Trump clearly has a personality disorder which harms his ability to implement an agenda. His brothers and sister hate him. I don’t even think his wife and kids really like him. The guy has problems.

        2- Trumpism doesn’t require Trump. To make the point, Reagan was basically Goldwater 2.0. Agendas are frequently fulfilled by others down the road.

  26. As someone said already, Lion is unpersuadable. Still, his fixation on blaming Trump should get pushback.

    Are the leaders of the 10 countries with higher per capita death rates all incompetent and wholly responsible, even though these countries range from Sweden (hands off) to Belgium (lockdown!)?
    Is Trump wholly responsible even though we are in a federal system where one demonstrably incompetent governor (Cuomo) can skew the results?
    How many fewer of the 170,000 would have died absent Covid?
    Maybe Biden would have saved a few Covid lives, but what would the offset in suicides, domestic abuse, depression have been with more leftist policies? It’s childish to think that a once in 100 year plague could have been much better managed in our system and with our population mix and our freedoms.

    Either Lion wants to live in Brazil, or there’s some arbitrage opportunity he sees in living in a country that will have no fixed rule of law. I can’t see any other explanation for cherry picking components of the Covid response to use as an excuse not to vote for Trump.

      • Apart from not answering most of his points even the point you make is dodgy. Measurement of deaths from covid is entirely different in every country, from definition of covid as cause of death to the amount of people tested. The US health system, being what it is, got the biggest incentive to declare anyone who died while having covid as dying from covid. Except from Floyd.

        The funny thing is that it is like this in every country, everybody blame the government, doesn’t matter if they are left or right or whatever, because everybody are not happy with the corona situation so whoever is in charge get blamed. The thing with you is that the corona is the only thing existing in your life, you stopped writing about anything else for months, so all your views are based on this one issue as if nothing else exists in this world.


        August 20, 2020 at 8:54 PM

      • You are wrong. Belgium has highest per capita in Europe. UK, Italy, Spain, and Sweden are all higher than USA too. Note also that all these countries have lower number of minorities and healthier overall populations. Whether we like it or not, demographically, USA is essentially a much fatter version of Brazil.


        August 21, 2020 at 7:55 AM

      • ” Whether we like it or not, demographically, USA is essentially a much fatter version of Brazil.”

        Yes which makes the constant comparison to European countries irrelevant. Demographically, we’re a brown country, not some white European one. We do resemble Brazil far more than any European country, so judging us by “crappy South American countries” seems entirely appropriate. That’s where we are headed.

        Anyway, studies have shown that one of the highest correlations to obesity, and as the chubbiest country on Earth, it was inevitable that we would have such a high mortality rate.

  27. Lion has finally lost it.

    A vote for Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris and the DNC. And what they support IS worse than coronavirus deaths. They will bring in de facto open borders, they will destroy cities with anti-police policies. They will raise middle class taxes. They will spend trillions on free college and healthcare for anyone who steps foot on American soil. They will kowtow before China.

    You’re so convinced that the Democrats would have done better for coronavrius, but as late as the beginning of March, the Democrats were literally calling China and other travel bans “racist”, despite it being THE most important policy for stopping coronavirus at the time.

    Trump is so obviously better that its totally bizarre reading this post.

      This is why I support Trump. We’re one Supreme Court justice away from Supreme-Court-mandated open borders. If Trump loses in November, we could lose the Supreme Court.

      I’d like to say that every other country on the planet would deny permanent residency to an immigrant who would need to depend government assistance, but there could be some SJW-infested country in Europe that it allows it, so I can’t say for sure. There’s a lot of insanity in the world of SJWs.

      This is not to say that we, as citizens of the United States, should not endeavor to make the world a better place, or that we should ignore suffering outside of our borders. But the world will not be a better place if hordes of immigrants overwhelm us and we become just another dysfunctional country. Instead, we should do what we can to make the countries these people are coming from better so they don’t have to leave. Plus we need to be alert for grifters and slackers who would take advantage of our soft-heartedness.

  30. The disagreement we see in the comments here, and in various other forums, comes from an important division within the Dissident Right.

    On one side are secular classical liberals, albeit smart ones with contrarian streaks. They know about HBD and about the problems inherent to multicultural societies. To them, NAM dysfunction and SJW wackiness are obstacles in the path towards safety, comfort, and utility maximization. Essentially, they want a pleasant, high-tech existence in modern Denmark on steroids.

    The other group consists of traditionalists. These are mostly Christians, although they’re joined by some Jews, a few pagans, and some “religious but not spiritual” nonbelievers. Their goal is the preservation and transmission of Western Civilization: its peoples, its history, its art, its cultures, and its religion.

    Lion is part of the first group. Thus his concern with the virus (safety) above all else, and his eagerness to (for example) close churches indefinitely. If you actually care about worshiping God, you’re going to be willing to take a risk to attend church. But Lion experiences no loss in utility in his position: he’s sacrificing something he doesn’t give a s*** about, and in fact feels contempt towards.

    Trump is a bad person, and I have zero illusions about his character or abilities. But a Biden presidency would be disastrous for the Right. On his coattails will sweep in a host of SJW bureaucrats who are eager to vindictively attack everyone who voted for Trump. They’ll enact a giant, nation-transforming amnesty out of sheer spite. If you think BLM is a problem now, wait until Attorney General Keith Ellison has their back. Wait until more Kagans and Sotomayors are appointed. Watch how many more names are changed, and statues removed. And no, accelerationism is a delusion. Worse isn’t better…it’s just worse.

    I have no idea how President Biden would have handled COVID. But some things matter more than deaths in a pandemic.


    August 20, 2020 at 8:38 PM

    • If people want to attend church I support that, but only after they deliberately infect themselves and are subject to isolation.

      It’s more about IQ than anything else. Churchmen are moderately high-IQ, so they shut down their services. Even in Iran and Saudi Arabia, the religious authorities shut it down. It’s low-IQ people, most of whom never attend church because they lack the attention span to sit through a sermon, who are whining about it, along with the “Jebus will protect us from the snake bites” inbred fringe.

Nice little experiment, valuable data point – you’d think we’d be hearing about it one way or the other. How come no one’s being tracked? How come the DC mayor waived mandatory quarantine for returning politicians? If every church were to replace the Nicene Creed with “Black Lives Matter”, would that stop the spread of the virus? It would appear to do so – it certainly seems to stop the virus spreading in large gatherings, provided the appropriate burnt offerings and occasional human sacrifice are made. You’re probably OK too – all the smug cells will swamp the virus.

    • I see the split in the right a little differently; between those who have children and therefore a stake in the future and those like Lion who is childless and therefore his interest in the future doesn’t extend beyond his death. That explains the hysteria of Lion over COVID. Living in ground zero and driven to hysteria, of course he would reach for any straw that offered him some salvation, even if it’s phony. Of course the Democrats wouldn’t have done a better job. Democrats ran New York and it performed the worst of any place in the country!

      I have children and have an interest in a future long after I’m gone, and to Lion such an interest must seem absurd.

      Mike Street Station

      August 21, 2020 at 6:47 AM

      • Mike, I kind of agree. I don’t think your interest seems absurd, it’s just not his top priority. As a general rule, people vote for their interests. The number one consideration I have for political decisions is: “will this make my children’s future better or worse”. Someone who doesn’t have children rephrases that to: “will this make my future better or worse”.

        Lion really wants to stop the spread of COVID, but he also likes some of the changes that attempts to control COVID brought on. Work from home forever is great for an introvert who can do his job from home and not have to go to an office just so someone else can watch him sitting in a cube. That’s another perfectly sensible thing for him to want, and a thing that he’s more likely to get from team D than team R.

        People who can’t work from home for the rest of their lives, and depend on income they’ve lost as a result of shutdowns, don’t like the new rules, and become more inclined to choose team R over team D.

        By 2070, the relative effectiveness of the U.S. government’s efforts to stop COVID back in 2020 will no longer matter. However, other decisions being made now will continue to matter… but only to those who are still alive in 2070.

        Honestly, I don’t think childless people should be allowed to vote. One of the problems we have in our system is allowing people with no stake in the long term future to vote on decisions that effect the long term future. That doesn’t mean childless people don’t add value to society. It only means what I just said.

      • Did you watch the idiocracy clip above? Having kids does not put you in a very exclusive club. There was a scene from the Big Bang Theory, where Leonard is given a test to establish his intelligence:

        Sheldon: Last question. In a post-apocalyptic world, which task would you assign the highest priority? Locating a sustainable food source, re-establishing a functioning government, procreating, or preserving the knowledge of mankind?

        Leonard: Uh, I’m gonna go with preserving the knowledge.

        Sheldon: That’s correct. FYI, I would have accepted any answer other than procreating.

        Yes, it’s a joke, but that is really how a lot of nerds think. That procreating is a low-skilled job that should be done by low-skilled laborers, while the intelligent focus on “preserving the knowledge of mankind” for the benefit of future generations of smart people who will just magically sprout out of the ground. It’s an idiotic and dysgenic worldview. If I don’t have any kids, I’ll be honest enough to say it’s because of my own self-interest.

        Do you know what else is dysgenic? This common red-tribe valorization of anyone who reproduces, so that they feel comfortable asserting that the mere fact that they have kids proves they are responsible, intelligent, and care about the world. Naturally, this has the greatest appeal to losers who have no other way to get valorization from society. According to one writer at National Review, we should even celebrate women who give up their kids for adoption. AFAIK no other NR writers pushed back on it.

      • I think you’re both right. I realize there are exceptions to every rule, but even though I don’t have children, DA’s comment resonates more with me personally (though I assume he meant “spiritual but not religious” rather than the other way around.) My ideal society would be one in which going to church is the norm, Christianity holds some sway over the public life of the society, lifelong monogamous couples with nuclear families are the norm and the urban single lifestyle is virtually nonexistent, the middle and upper classes have some affinity for Shakespeare, Mozart, etc. The difference is that unlike cuckservatives who say that they promote Western Civilization but think that just means a set of abstract ideas anyone can adhere to, I am aware of the reality of innate racial differences and thus that traditional Western culture requires a white population. But it irks me when an “HBDer” like Lion says that they would be happy living in Japan if they spoke the language, or that they don’t mind Asians taking over the Ivy League. At the end of the day, someone like me, who is deeply vested in traditional Western Civilization and culture, vs. someone who cares only about living in first world, clean, low crime, high IQ, high trust society living conditions regardless of the people and culture, aren’t really on the same team.

        Whites and East Asians are pretty compatible. The Lion has some `Asian tendencies`, such as a love of social harmony. If he looked Chinese, and were born into ancient China, he probably would have made a good Mandarin. I suspect he might have been happier with that life than he is with the one he lives now.

        As Jack Donovan points out, you can’t move forward by trying to go back to the past. You need to create the future. Civilizations have always borrowed from each other to create new things. The East certainly has no problem with borrowing from the West. Maybe the West should also borrow from the East?

        What are you basing this rule on? It makes sense in theory, but the real world doesn’t much look like it. Are people who don’t have any kids more likely to support lots of deficit spending than people who do? If anything the reserve is likely to be true.

        The irony is that a not inconsiderable number of people have kids only because of excessive present-time orientation i.e. not using protection. Years later, they want to see themselves as part of some kind of nobility, not qualifying for a nobility of blood or a nobility of merit, they console themselves that they are part of the nobility of reproducers. I’m not saying you’re part of this group, but that your rhetoric gives them encouragement and contributes to dysgenics.

That is, the ideal is the kind of society America was post Salem Witch Trials but pre- banning of religion from public life that started in the 1960s: as long as you said “Merry Christmas” back when somebody said it to you, and bowed your head during the prayers at weddings and funerals, nobody would bother you. If you started publicly voicing the opinions of Richard Dawkins you’d be a social outcast, but police weren’t breaking down your door and dragging you out of bed to force you go to church, or arresting you and putting you on trial for heresy or blasphemy, or anything like that.

      Basically, corona deniers fall into three groups:

      1. Impulsive and dumb people who don’t want to social distance.

      2. People who want nothing to change, want society to be frozen in time.(the exact time varies) Like a child enjoying ice cream on a warm summer day who is willing neither to accept that his ice cream will melt nor to put it back in the freezer, they love phenomena that are inherently ephemeral. They denounce any suggestion of radical change with the simple “well, the ice cream wasn’t melting five minutes ago!” Corporations, Christianity, single-family zoning, the military, marriage, chivalry, public schools, universities, football, they instinctively leap to the defense of these things… because they existed in that golden age, and it can’t be that they’re now ineffective or actively harmful. These people are only slightly smarter than the first group, and oppose the lockdown because it’s something new.

      3. People who want radical change and who believe the path to getting there is through mobilizing group 1. This would include some of the white trashionalist leaders.

  31. From a middle east point of view Trump is much better than Obama. He actually brokered a peace deal between Israel and the UAE. He reduced the American involvement in Iraq and Syria letting the Russians sort out the situation, which they did. He pushed against Iran and Hizbollah, killing Qasem Soleimani which was a huge blow to the Iranian aspirations for taking over the middle east. He supports Asisi in Egypt who is much more tolerant unlike Obama that supported the Muslim brothers and Hizbollah to such extent that he let them smuggle drugs into the US with no repercussions just to appease Iran.

    I could go on about the middle east, I could also go on about why he was much better president for America than Obama/Biden but the main issue is that you look too much into appearances rather than substance. Obama can speak well and got a Nobel peace prize for that alone, Trump brokered an actual peace but will never get any recognition for it, because too many people are like you, ignoring substance.

    • Perversely, it was actually Obama who brought Israel together with Sunni Arab governments because they saw Obama as being too nutty to deal with the Iran problem and he supported Muslim Brotherhood revolutions. Iran and revolutions in their own countries are a much greater threat than Israel, which they acknowledge don’t want to conquer any of her neighbors.

They want to create a “crescent” from Iran to the Mediterranean via Iraq and Syria. Obama might have some responsibility for the recent common interests of no Muslim brotherhood Sunnies and Israel, but that was despite of his efforts to harm Israel and other Sunni countries, unlike Trump who actually solved some issues and was a positive agent in brokering peace.

    You seem to go against anything you have been writing on the blog so far. What about immigration? What about Supreme Court picks? What is next, support for BLM?

  39. Lion, you are making the mistake of thinking that the old Joe Biden will be in charge. He will either croak in a matter of months or will be manipulated by the far left members of his cabinet and a Vice President eager to exact revenge on middle America.

    Give Trump credit where it is due. The man overcame extraordinary odds. He defeated the establishments of both parties and is at war with the administrative state and mainstream media on a daily basis. This kind of stress would kill most human beings in a matter of days. He HAS delivered on signature issues like immigration, trade and ending foreign wars. Right now there is a wall being built on the southern border…Who else could have done that? He has reshaped the federal judiciary with conservative judges.
    The economic engine that his policies fueled gave us the ability to weather the storm of this virus without falling into a depression. Yes, the virus has taken its toll. But we have a federalist system with states rights. Its not like he could just shut down the entire country for six months with a stroke of pen. Nor should he have. He followed the Constitution and allowed the states to handle their own affairs at the community level. The vast majority of those who have died were already very old and very sick. There is little he could have done to substantially change that. Trump is not perfect, but he is by far better than handing the reigns of power over to the Marxist mob and their enablers.


    August 21, 2020 at 3:49 PM

    • If President Trump is at war with the administrative state then he is losing. He failed to use his 4k political appointee to manage the administrative state. He failed to create new policies or laws to handle the state.

      There is no way to claim that someone who went through four CofS is four years is a good manager or adminsitrator. Also, there is no way that the Democrats would let someone as stupid as Jared Kushner have control of policy.

  43. Let’s give Donald Trump credit for not having invaded a single country.
    If you want to find other US presidents who hadn’t ordered an invasion, you have to go back to Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter.

    Another improvement that went largely unnoticed was that US stopped giving unconditional support to Kosovo Albanians in their negotiations with Serbia. And their leader, Hashim Thaci is being prosecuted in the Hague for trading in body parts, which has been known for a long time; I guess US used to pull strings in the Hague for him.
    The liberals and the neocons responded in a predictable fashion, by having a total meltdown and publishing hysterical editorials which basically argued that abandoning a strategic ally (i.e. Kosovo) cannot be done because if we did something for the last 20 years then we must do it forever.

    • Ted Rall, a progressive journalist praises (at least relative to Biden’s) Trump’s foreign policy:

      In foreign policy, there is far less cause for optimism. From Bosnia to Afghanistan to Iraq to Libya to Syria, Joe Biden has enthusiastically voted for and convinced his fellow legislators to support brutal foreign interventions. Though disgusting, Trump’s record is nevertheless far better than Biden’s. Trump has expanded Obama’s drone wars and supports the bloodthirsty Saudi regime in the proxy civil war in Yemen. Yet he also negotiated a deal for total U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and repeatedly expresses his willingness to negotiate with such adversaries as North Korea and Iran without pre-conditions.


      August 24, 2020 at 9:38 AM

      • While Trump rejects open warfare he still embraces US imperialism through economic sanctions, covert operations, arms sales, diplomatic isolation, and airstrikes. Nevertheless Trump deserves credit for putting the breaks on endless war embracing the most progressive and dovish foreign policy in decades.

  45. “The Republican party before trump was the democratic party. They were the same elites. Same goals. Same methods”

    One thing I noticed about Republicans is their learning towards a larger BMI, so they are the party of the proles. Not to mention, many of them have shoddy credentials. A lot of them are alumni of bottom tier schools that most of us have never heard of. You have to find libertarian types among the GOP who are equivalent to the Democrats in credentials like a Mitt Romney.

  46. This should be in your twitta feed:

    You bet the MTA is in trouble. The ridership of its buses, subways and rails have taken a massive hit due to the lack of jobs available for people to commute. Furthermore, with the exception of its Hudson Valley rails (Metro North), there are so many unsavory passengers (especially NAMs who ride the subway) looking for trouble. It’s disgusting and also prole to ride the subways now as with the buses as usual.

    A few weeks ago, I had the lucky encounter to witness a White lady who was berating a black passenger on the Metro North’s Hudson Line for not wearing a face covering. Both of them got off at the Beacon Station. It culminated with the White lady moving into the rear of the car, only to get into an argument with a White conductor on the train who was also not wearing a face covering.

    What a sh!tshow this country has become!

  47. Lion, if you want to continue to work as an independent contractor, you must vote for Trump. Only Trump will uphold your freedoms, including the freedom to choose how you want to work. Look at the disastrous #ab5 in California. The House has already passed a national version of it (called #PROAct), essentially forcing every freelancer to be an “employee”. Most of the freelancers would end up unemployed or earning a lot less as an employee making minimum wages while losing the freedom to set their own schedule; the Bill would only serve to enrich the Democratic leaders through labor unions.

    This pandemic crisis will pass, but your freedoms, once lost, will almost never be restored.

In general, he accepts the modern bureaucratic technocratic state and its urban sophisticate mindset. He views lack of sufficient concern about the Wuhan Chinese virus as prole, and therefore disgusting.


      August 24, 2020 at 2:08 PM

      • I wish this was all theoretical debate. But #AB5 has become reality for the millions of self-employed living in CA who are being suffocated under the new law. Many have left the state in order to continue to work independently. Biden/Harris support a similar law for the whole nation. Lion can kiss his IC job goodbye.

        I am just warning anyone who would listen. You never appreciate the importance of oxygen until you lose it. Can’t believe any decent IQ person would vote for the erosion of his/her most basic rights.

      • “the modern bureaucratic technocratic state and its urban sophisticate mindset”

        Nearly everyone in the developed world wants a “technocratic state.” Of course in practice it usually ends up with a lot of corruption and nepotism, but in theory they’ll all endorse having the smartest people in charge. Who doesn’t want the smartest people in charge? Life’s losers, that’s who. People who live in the ghetto, the barrio, or the trailer park. They are the kind of people who thought Marion Barry would make a good mayor of D.C. I am an unmarried, childless, heterosexual, non-Jewish, irreligious, non-gun-owning, urban-living, nerdy white man, and apart from the urban part I don’t plan to ever be anything else. I’m not gonna choose between two sides whose members either hate me or think I should make common cause with those who do.


        August 24, 2020 at 6:48 PM

      • In general, he accepts the modern bureaucratic technocratic state and its urban sophisticate mindset.

        Sure. Trump appeals to the lower middle class and rural left-behinds who see that the modern bureaucratic state has no need of lower IQ white people, and they are slipping in social status below blacks. High IQ non Aspergery urban sophisticated whites are doing quite well in the techno state, and have even benefitted financially and emotionally from COVID, while being the biggest proponents of the lockdown.

        The sad thing about Trump is that he gives his base emotional nourishment,but nothing else. The SJW crowd has done far better economically during the Trump era than his base. Immigration hasn’t stopped, nor has the decline in status of proles and low IQ whites. But Trump will continue to take their money and exploit these people. Just as continues to con a lot of posters here.

    August 24, 2020 at 6:45 PM

    • Richard Spencer is a trust fund faggot whose money is running out especially given his lavish spending and lifestyle. He always wants to be the center of attention and can’t stand sharing the spotlight with others. Spencer heaps praise on individuals who are anti-white, support open borders, embrace BLM, and want to censor everything online but he has nothing but contempt for Trump. He was once pictured with Laura Bush so his loyalties are questionable to say the least. I always knew Spencer was a fed asset and controlled opposition but even if he technically isn’t he may as well be. He’s destroyed every organization he’s ever been part of, he can’t maintain working relationships of any kind, his marriage failed with allegations of physical abuse, and he constantly tries to screw around with other guy’s girlfriends. He even betrayed his own second in command Gregory Conte who served him faithfully by trying to have a threesome with his girl. Richard Spencer is a piece of shit and the fact he was once viewed as a leader shows how bad judgement most people have.
