What If MAGA Shrugged?

Original Article

Congressional lizards posing as "leaders" met with China Joe in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, and the wretched gerontocracy that rules over us looked happy as clams to be reunited after the political theater of the midterms. Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Kevin McCarthy, and Turtle McConnell all sported sly, devilish grins that suggested they got exactly what they wanted in last month's elections. In undermining MAGA candidates, Turtle's iron-fisted control over his Republican minority remains absolute. Up-Chuck and Child-Sniffer Joe still hold the Senate

I cannot think of one thing done by the current Administration that actually benefits America as a whole, not one. That is the definition of a crying shame. Can anyone think of a reason to ever vote for another Democrat?

Since the Tea Party and the corrupt IRS treason this volcano has been building. The Trump MAGA movement steeled the treasonous cabal of statist resolve to destroy America from the ground up. Watching the Hong Kong protest where American and Trump flags flew loud and proud stirred me like nothing else.....until January 6th 2021. A million strong had peacefully gathered to voice their patriotism and love for America. Trump flags large and small unfurled mixed with Old Glory, what a sight. Never give up, never say die, never quit. Do not let them win.

It’s a delicious thought but impractical. This is not a book or movie, it is real life. The forces of evil aligned together to create the great reset are just itching to come down hard on patriots. They would quickly use the full force of the government against anyone who would dare oppose them. In fact, they would relish the opportunity. The less of us, the more they would like it. It would make their plans so much easier to complete. Even opting out would be labeled as domestic terrorism and any participants would be treated like the J6 prisoners if not worse. The problem as I see it is that democrats and their GOPe buddies do not fear us. They, once again, stole an election in plain sight. These people have no shame, no integrity and even less respect for our side. They laugh at our respect for law and order, the political process, and civility. The time to take a stand was in 2020, but like good citizens we looked forward to 2022 to exact our revenge. We were committed to the electoral process and was confident in our success. It was a stunning realization to once again witness the same kind of election theft that robbed us. So now what? All legal means have been stripped from us. What recourse do we have against this lawless government? The government as we believe in it is like a dead man walking. Election theft was the means democrats used to do what our foreign enemies could not do. This was a long strategic plan that has been in the works for decades, but the election of Obama pushed it into high gear. Hillary was to carry on. However, Donald Trump threw a wrench in their plans and actually showed the American people what was possible. We did not have to go down the left’s path to socialism. We could pull back. Democrats then kicked their lawlessness and determination into high gear. They stole 2020 and the rest is history. They have enacted every radical left wing policy on their agenda quickly and with an intensity we have never seen before. Every aspect of the government is corrupted. There may be pockets of patriots, but they have no power. Every single government agency is aligned with the democrats. When they co-opted the military, it was a done deal. They have successfully overthrown the government of the United States without firing a shot. Now they are playing clean up, but they have successfully cut off any possibility that an opposition party could become a threat. Like every communist dictatorship, election fraud is the key to permanent power. There will be no uprising legally or illegally. This is not your granddaddy’s democrat party. It is not even your granddaddy’s government. The forces aligned to make the changes we are experiencing now have no conscience, integrity or humanity. All they know is their lust for power and control and they will use any method available to them to crush any opposition. This is not Concord, Massachusetts in 1775, with the British army as the enemy. This is a bunch of insane Sociopaths with unlimited powers of surveillance and weaponry.

I don’t think MAGA will have to shrug.......I think the bottom is going to fall out of this whole rotten mess on its own weight of stupidity. At least two generations have been taught to hate America. Add to that wide open borders, lawlessness and trannies and such being rammed down our throats on a daily basis means we are probably beyond the point of no return and will have to rebuild once the financial and nuclear dust settles. Once we had the Great Depression.....the next one will be the really, really, really Great Depression.

In three paragraphs #4 nailed it. I have no answers, only fears. I do believe if there is any "push back" by the people it will be crushed. Our once great military is dissolving before our eyes. Yes, it has been "co-opted", and if there is any large scale resistance, I believe it will fire on the American people. It is amazing how long it takes to build a nation vs how little time it takes to tear it down. Maybe we are ancient Rome on our way to a total collapse. Time for some divine intervention...

You can go on strike but look for our government to setup labor camps and debtor's prisons. Someday they will tell us when to retire. You cannot fix stupidity and you cannot fix dishonesty. Plain and simple, you cannot fix this. Just look at our debt to see why. Didn't hear much about fixing the debt during the 2022 election cycle. Way too many dumb dishonest people out there with their hands out and wanting the government to tell their neighbor what to do. Way too many big-money types using government to line their pockets and live like little gods. As for MAGA, I wonder if it peaked (just like the Tea Party). Probably before 2020. MAGA meant different things to different people. It took a big hit when the pandemic struck. In particular in the big cities. Our government wants to destroy MAGA as much as it wants to destroy Trump. People are willing to steal elections to augment their pocketbook. People are encouraged to participate in our government, and by golly, they are. It was great while it lasted.

I interpret MAGA shrugging is no longer bothering to vote. And I'm afraid I have reached that point. It is clear that the Dems cheat and the Repub leadership is fine with it. The IRS committed lots of crimes against the Tea Party. And the Repubs did nothing. Trump won in 2016 because the polls had shown that Hillary was going to win by a huge margin. But the polls are always weighted against Repubs. So on election night when Trump was clearly in the lead George S. said something about the count should be stopped so we can figure out what to do. They didn't have enough cheat votes because they weren't expecting Trump to lead. In 2020 they knew Trump would lead so they had plenty of cheat votes at the ready. And the key vote counting rooms shut down for a few hours only to open back up with Biden having miraculously gained a huge number of votes when the rooms were supposed to be "shut down". For this run-off election the cheat is already in. The Dems now know they can cheat in every way they want and the MSM and the Repubs will let them. Should I vote for Walker? It doesn't matter. There will be enough cheat votes to overcome any amount of votes for Walker. Why bother voting anymore? Warnock will be pronounced the winner. If Walker is ahead then suddenly a trunk full of overlooked mail in ballots will be found. And all will be for Warnock. This has been going on my whole life. Nixon actually beat JFK but Chicago and Texas cheated. Nixon was asked and said he didn't want to through the country into turmoil so he didn't contest the cheat. And after he did that the Dems still had it in for Nixon because of Alger Hiss.

There are things that can be done, but it takes participation beyond writing a check or prayer. Get involved in local politics. Get involved with local issue groups. Do something. Far too many grouse on the sidelines. Stop electing teacher union endorsed school boards. Demand a level of sanity at your town/city council. Get smart about the details of issues. Buttonhole your elected officials and ask questions. You could even run for office. Go to meetings of public bodies and you'll find many empty seats on most nights. People complain about potholes, not municipal policies so much. And if so concerned, step up and run for office. It's easy enough to file. Experience is a great teacher...and you could win office. It happens.

The unlawfully constituted and conducted January 6 Committee referred Donald Trump for a criminal indictment to keep him from running again in 2024. The problem for the Democrats, unfamiliar as they are with the Constitution and with American history, is that there is no reason for Trump not to run and win, even if he’s deep in the bowels of Leavenworth or some other federal penitentiary.

If you are a conservative voter in America today at some point you have to realize you have no representation in the US Senate. Mitch McConnell has a 33 percent approval rating, the lowest in the US Senate and yet he was reelected as GOP Leader with 37 votes to 10 votes for Senator Scott. The Senate Republicans REALLY, really hate their base. The bill gives another $44.9 billion to Ukraine — where it disappears into the ether. The bill also makes it impossible for Americans to challenge a stolen election.
Rob Schneider’s rousing defense of America 7 replies

Many Americans remember Rob Schneider from his time on Saturday Night Live in the late 1980s through the early 1990s, when he created several amusing characters. After leaving SNL, he’s had a decent Hollywood career, although he hasn’t had the fame his pal Adam Sandler has enjoyed. I hope, though, that Schneider will be remembered for something else. In a Twitter thread, he expressed his love for America and her constitutional values, especially when arrayed against the mindless emotionalism and techno-fascism that now threatens those values.
Why reparations now? 20 replies
Posted by DW626 12/19/2022 5:47:52 AM Post Reply
The absurdity of the concept of reparations for slavery, an institution that ended several generations ago, is beyond mind-boggling. But there’s a blatantly cynical reason for the sudden lurch in that direction: formerly reliable Black voters are now slipping away from the Democrats. This also explains Biden’s recently expressed profuse generosity towards the nations of sub-Saharan Africa. What is also painfully obvious is the lame, demagogic pandering that is the Democrats’ knee-jerk response, especially to a defecting constituency: just throw money at them and that’ll keep ‘em on the reservation.

“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.” –Sen. Charles Schumer, January 2017 Chuck Schumer said the above quote shortly after President-elect Donald Trump criticized and mocked his “intelligence” briefers for being unprepared and for delaying a scheduled briefing on Russia for several days. Given the FBI and CIA social media shenanigans that have recently come to light through the Twitter files that new owner Elon Musk has allowed to be released, it appears that Trump’s instincts regarding the “intelligence community” were correct.

In Obama circles, rebuke, rejection, or refutation does not sit well. These two hypersensitive narcissists thrive on things like public adoration and unswerving agreement.

No, McConnell said that "providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now, according to most Republicans." Really?

Why Do Liberals Hate Trump So Much? 29 replies

The question in the title needs, I believe, critical examination. Why DOES the Left hate Trump so much? The answer, as usual, can largely be found by analyzing history. But first. Do they hate him because the average price of a gallon of gas in his administration was far lower than under Biden? Is it because inflation was low (around 2%) and trending downward? Is it that the USA was energy independent and didn’t need to beg our enemies for oil, deplete our strategic oil reserve or sell it to China? Is it because black and Hispanic unemployment was lower than at any time in history?

The Dems of course found a sleazy way around that.
