The Misery Compact

The wisecrack in MAGA world is that coronavirus hysteria and the catastrophic consequences of related lockdowns have an expiration date: November 4, 2020.That, of course, is the day after the presidential election, which our political experts currently predict will be won by Joe Biden. Panic over the flu-like virus will disappear; power-grabbing governors will ease house arrest orders; children will go back to school; face coverings will be torched; and the news media’s coronavirus dashboards will be archived for history.Further, inner-city unrest magically will be cured. Antifa thugs will go back to Starbucks or their bedroom in mom’s Westport mansion or their Ivy League dorm rooms. Crisis over.

Do these clowns really think that the riots or virus for that matter concern anybody living in a town or city under 500,000 ? Elect Trump, MAGA, and let New York and Chicago burn themselves to the ground. I might even come for a visit with my hot dogs and marshmallows.

IF Biden wins in November, all the Dem insanity will indeed disappear and they will all be high-fiving and hugging each other for pulling off the coup of all coups. In fact they'll be brutal putting down all their own paramilitary thugs. Almost as bad as they'll be in rounding up all the deplorables and sending them to reeducation camps. That's all a given. But let's talk about what SHOULD happen if Trump gets reelected. Simply stated, the gloves must come off. Forget the tweets, start the indictments. No more shadow dancing with the Dems. Ignore their subpoenas for congressional clown hearings. Laugh at any further impeachment efforts. The people will have spoken! Take the full reins of power and go to the whip. And issue a federal order for all police that any attacks on them will be under new rules of engagement, namely, any use of force against them or the citizens they are seeing to protect can and will be met with deadly force.

The sociopath Democrats will do anything (literally) to get back in total power, and they have made a pact with the Marxist devil, which, for some reason, they must think they can control. I think, even if they win, they will have a very hard time putting the evil genie back in its bottle, and riots and demands will continue until the Marxists themselves are in complete control. The wolves they have been using to devour conservatives will still be hungry when we have all been eaten.

The article is an excellent analysis of what has happened, and where we are. I don't know what happens Nov 3, because we all know the Democrats are going to cheat, and the election results may be a nightmare. No matter, I am voting for Trump. I no longer care about indictments. I do care about transparency, and am very disappointed that the American people continue to be insulted by the government refusing to release legally required FOIA information, and redacting documents to cya, rather than legitimate reasons. I am also disappointed that Trump did not purge the government of Obama holdovers, and continues not to do it. If Biden wins, or the Democrats take the Senate, watch how quickly the filibuster goes, how quickly Republican U.S. attorneys get their pink notices.

What do Conservatives do when their or other's Constitutional rights are infringed upon, or denied? Why, we appeal to the Supreme Court to defend and uphold the Constitution. know... "tha' ...paper", as Obama referred to it? For people who to not respect or honor our history, our Constitutional Republic, who won't honor the meaning of anthem or the flag, some of whom not so subtly want to carve out a huge part of our country for their own, who scorn the Bill of Rights, do you think that now that they've come out of the political closet, so to speak, as leftwing sympathizers and adherents, do you think they would honor and AND obey all that "stuff" written on "tha' paper"? If we appeal to the Supreme Court and the Court rules in favor of our Constitutional Rights but those decisions don't comport with the new regime's policies, can we believe that they would obey rulings not favoring them? Not with the current bunch of radicals in the Dem/Left. The minute they perceive weakness they'll seize the final moment. We know the answer. They've already talked about "packing the Court" and, like K. Harris, or Robert Francis O'Rourke, when it comes to the Second Amendment, just eliminating access to firearms, and even disarming the people. It came as a surprise to me when studying Soviet government and politics, that the commies had a constitution. It was written down. It was codified. And it didn't mean a damn thing. If some poor victim of the regime tried to appeal to one of their "rights", that "right" was simply erased from the document. What could a person do? was that "paper" going to come to the rescue? This is why we must hold elected officials to their taking of the Oath of Office. EVERY candidate must be strongly questioned on this most solemn act in their ascension to office. Right before DJT was inaugurated, it became clear that there was this pathological hatred directed toward him. Not just policy differences or disdain for style. It was and it is hatred from Democrats and from Republicans who have been stewing in resentments, jealousy, revenge. It's irrational hatred, stirred and stirred over the flames to the boiling point. One thing is for sure, the Leftists do not care about the Individual, they do not care how many people are hurt or killed or how many businesses fail or anything else except the acquisition and consolidation of power and the totalitarian control over everyone. For utopia, of course.

"the boot comes off the throat only after they win" This is a textbook description of domestic terrorism. We do NOT bargain with terrorists. I doubt that these tactics will work. The mushy middle of voters KNOW they do not like what is happening and they know that Trump, even with some of his behaviors they don't like, is the right man to straighten this out. He is treading lightly because of the election but it will not last. People are being arrested. Federal charges are being levied. This is not the weak brained local courts but serious federal court. Many of these areas are fed up with their local politicians allowing the insanity to continue. There may be a local sea change come November. I suspect Trump is in very good shape. Intimidation tactics don't work well against a citizenry well armed and well able to defend itself. The blowback against all this garbage has the potential to be YUGE. If the thugs think they are going to raise the stakes after the election, they are going to going to get a big hurt put on them. Then we will clean house.

WASHINGTON — The vote to renominate President Donald Trump is set to be conducted in private later this month, without members of the press present, said a spokeswoman for the Republican National Convention, citing the coronavirus.While Trump called off the public components of the convention in Florida last month, citing spiking cases of the virus across the country, 336 delegates are scheduled to gather in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Aug. 24 to formally vote to make Trump the GOP standard-bearer once more.Nominating conventions are traditionally meant to be media bonanzas, as political parties seek to leverage the attention the events draw to spread their message to as many voters

Chicago saw a dramatic increase in homicides and shootings in the first seven months of 2020 and a particularly remarkable increase in July, reflecting a growing trend in the U.S. that raised questions about potential police reform in major cities.Data released on Saturday showed that Chicago saw 440 homicides between January 2020 through the end of June, a 52 percent increase from the same time period last year (which saw 290 homicides). Shooting victims similarly increased by 51 percent (1,480 to 2,240) and shooting incidents themselves rose 47 percent (from 1,210 to 1,783).Crime tends to increase during summers, but recent events have fueled unrest in the U.S.

One of the many great things about being an American is that we have the right to freedom of speech.

From 2017, revenue declined from a reported $452.6 million. What remains unseen is the effect the coronavirus pandemic has had on Trump properties, as the outbreak did not lead to shutdowns until this year.Among notable properties, Trump's famous Florida club Mar-a-Lago brought in $21.4 million last year, slightly less than the two previous years.

In a role reversal from their eight years together in the White House, Barack Obama has become Joe Biden’s wingman and, in his understated way, his hatchet man.The former president’s Thursday eulogy for the late Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat who was active in the civil rights movement, was a case in point. Obama criticized President Trump and reminded Democrats who they would be letting down if they didn’t elect Biden and a Democratic Senate, urging them to jettison the filibuster — a key institutional obstacle to liberal ambitions — as a “relic of Jim Crow.”

Well, it may be time to deploy the military to Seattle after all because what local lawmakers are doing is nothing short of allowing the city to be engulfed in violence and anarchy. They’re moving to abolish the police. It’s not defunding. It’s a total dissolution. Non-profit programs and “community-led activities” will replace policing. Why? Well, according to the resolution, the Seattle Police Department perpetuates racism and violence. Oh, yes, and it’s a vehicle of white supremacy.

Admiration for George W. Bush doesn’t win you much praise in today’s Republican Party, but I don’t care. On Thursday former President George W. Bush attended and delivered a speech at the late Congressman John Lewis’s funeral. George W. Bush had every reason not to attend Lewis’s funeral, let alone eulogize him. Lewis may have been a famed civil rights leader, but he was also a bitter partisan Democrat congressman, who boycotted both of Bush’s inaugurations. Bush barely mentioned the political division between him and Lewis. “John and I had our disagreements of course,” Bush said.
