Overcoming the Rhetoric of Jacobinism

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 7/30/2022 11:11:53 AM

One of the most powerful tools of social control is capacity to define words. George Orwell established the ominous potential of the political darkness extending from such power. We in the United States find ourselves subjugated increasingly to a dangerous rhetorical world of doublespeak. Al Gore recently compared the killing of 19 children and teachers at Uvalde to the refusal to hear children crying out as victims of climate change. His comparison is not unlike his longstanding comparison of disagreement with his interpretation of the Earth’s proper temperature as analogous to Holocaust denial.

The author makes the case that words, let alone rhetoric, matter in politics. Democrats, despite their stupidity in practical matters, are experts at honing a political message. Republicans, despite being more intelligent than Democrats, generally are incompetent mumblers who find themselves flattened by left-wing talking points. In the Senate McConnell and his two lieutenants, Barrasso and Thune, cannot speak to the American people. The best McConnell could come up with when speaking against Build Back Better was to call the legislation “a liberal wish list.” For heaven’s sake! There was nothing “liberal” about the Marxist BBB. Kevin McCarthy isn’t much better. I am one who doesn’t see a red wave in November. The national Republicans have nothing but stale complaints to offer voters, who already know how bad things are. I keep hoping the Party will improve it messaging but time is growing short.

FTA: "Stop using “back” language... Too often we hear advocates saying “take back” or “fight back.” What is "conservatism"? What is the forward vision in these times.

FBI Director Christopher Wray always seems a little too pleased with himself. But on Thursday the smirk may be wiped off his pretty face when Republican members of the House oversight committee start grilling him on the mounting evidence that something is very rotten inside the agency Wray runs. Top of the list is the curious question of why the FBI apparently did nothing with Hunter Biden’s laptop, which was handed to two agents on Dec. 9, 2019, by John Paul Mac Isaac, the alarmed owner of the computer repair shop near the Biden family homes in Greenville, Del., where Hunter had dropped off his MacBook eight months earlier.

Donald Trump shared a joke with Fox News star Tucker Carlson during the Saudi-backed LIV golf tournament at his Bedminster golf club Sunday. The former president, 76, and the TV star who recently insisted he'd never run for president were all-smiles as they were joined by Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to watch the action unfold at the Trump National Golf Club. LIV arrived at Trump's club on July 29, sparking controversy from some 9/11 victims who say the Saudi-backed tournament should not be welcomed on US shores.

Former President Donald Trump-backed candidates Kari Lake, running for governor, and Blake Masters, running for U.S. Senate, have taken commanding leads in the polls just days before Arizona’s primaries. The OH Predictive poll conducted on July 27 found that the GOP likely voters supported the Trump-backed candidates for office over the rest of the candidates’ respective fields. Among the 502 respondents, Lake, a former local Fox 10 news anchor, held a double-digit lead, with 51 percent saying they would vote for her. The next closest competitor was Karrin Taylor Robson, with 33 percent of the vote.

The Harvard Crimson reported last week: In the most comprehensive study to date of what motivated the Trump supporters to attack the Capitol, Shorenstein Center researchers found that 20.6 percent of the rioters, a plurality, were motivated to take part in the riot because they supported Trump.

Bruce Springsteen has been a wealthy man for a very long time. In 1973 he released his second album, The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle which featured the classic song, Rosalita. Toward the end of the song’s tale about budding romance and the reluctance of a young woman’s father to accept her suitor, Springsteen explains, “And the record company, Rosie, just gave me a big advance!” We bet they did Bruce. Just two years later, Springsteen burst into superstardom in 1975 with his blockbuster album Born to Run, which resulted in him being one of the first entertainers ever to be featured on

Joe Manchin went to bat for his reconciliation bill Sunday by doing something called the 'full Ginsburg' – meaning he went on all five major networks' morning shows over the weekend. The moderate Democratic senator from West Virginia appeared on CNN's State of the Union, Fox News Sunday, ABC's This Week program, CBS News' Face the Nation and NBC's Meet the Press. He is only the 31st major newsmaker to complete this feat. The message was similar across the board – that the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 will decrease inflation and not raise taxes on the average American household.

It seemed obvious that Joe Biden’s selection of Kamala Harris as his running mate was a bad idea. Of all the Black Women™ he could have chosen, how he landed on her is a question for the ages. Unless, of course, someone figured they needed someone so awful that she would make Joe Biden look better by comparison. I suppose that’s it. The Biden-Harris White House has had over 30 senior staffers jump ship — many from Kamala’s office. The latest is Michael Collins, Harris’s director of public engagement; he follows senior aides Meghan Groob and Rohini Kosoglu, who departed a few weeks prior. Groob was Kamala’s director of speechwriting; it’s
