The Coming Split

Original Article

Posted By: GustoGrabber, 12/28/2022 6:24:49 AM

Last week I wrote about Teddy Roosevelt and Donald Trump. My comparison wasn’t between the two men as presidents—though they had some similar personality traits—but between how the two men were treated by the Republican Party. The Republican Party of 1912 decided it would be better off renominating William Howard Taft, even though its voters would have preferred another Roosevelt term. The resulting split ushered in Woodrow Wilson and the first academic globalists, whose bright ideas laid the groundwork for a second world war on the eve of the conclusion of the first.

This article is so good it should not be a Must Read, but should be a Forced Read! The author gets it and writes exactly what many of us feel about this whole political situation. There were so many good quotes that hit the nail squarely on the head. The anti-Trumpers will not agree but the author makes a strong case for Trump and I would urge you to share it everywhere.

I've held my nose and gone republicrat for the LAST TIME! DeSantis is machine Republicrat. Good guy, possibly, but still a lackey of McConnell. This nation has already been destroyed. I'm gonna stay home, while I still have one anyway, because NOTHING I do will change anything. Mitch tells me that every damn day

DeSantis needs to stay in Fl as governor for at least one more cycle. Best not to be in the frag pattern while the GOP commits political suicide.

The GOP's hate being in power. They would rather complain about not being in power. For example...look how many GOP's broke ranks to vote with the dems on the "Omnibus Spending Bill". Never again they proclaimed in unison...until the next opportunity to change their free-spending ways...then it will be "never again...again) The GOP's will always be #2 in my eyes...( if you know what I mean)

This is the best article I have read in a very long time. It sums up what so many of us have been trying to say here forever. The "most conservative who can win" is complete BS and always was. The uniparty decides who can win, so we are left with carp choices no matter what. If Trump starts a 3rd party I'll vote for him. He might not win, but so what? The communists will steal the election anyway, and the republicans will refuse to challenge it. We've been there before. A maga party will eventually gain momentum and start winning. Then I'd like to see the firing squads. If we are going to be a 3rd world banana republic, we might as well go all out.

The GOP half of the Uniparty will continue to bluster and fundraise only as long as we let them. Abandon the GOP half of the Uniparty and support only CANDIDATES who keep their word. No more fake, phony, RINO career politicians...

The wise among us will learn or know, then act on the reality that spirituality, not politics, is the answer to the problem. Politics is the problem. "But if any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His." Romans 8:9

Article is spot on. We are no longer registered Republicans. The day after Mitch and Company pushed through Omnibus, we changed from GOP a to Unaffiliated. We will never vote Democrat, but voting Republican hasn’t done anything for us. Frigging idiots could have saved the country.

One wonders, is the Republican Party the "stupid" party. Or, is it merely reflecting its supporters' stupidity? The Trump Cult is strong in this one. The dead-enders just don't get it, thinking Trumpism is still a building force in politics. It's not. It's spent. And it needs leadership that isn't carping about being cheated in the past. Rallies? What rallies? His announcement of "superhero trading cards"? His announcement of '24 candidacy? Those seeking a third party can look at the Libertarians as an example. Their future is highly limited by legalities, including ballot access and public funding laws. And who are the big money patrons willing to finance this effort? It's more realistic to take over the GOP at the local and state levels, if anyone has the energy to get involved.

The wimpy establishment Republicans and RINOS who are against Trump and the MAGA Republicans on ideological and political grounds, and instead side with the leftist, progressive, and socialist Democrats on important financial and political issues are making it a sure thing that the Republican Party will remain in the congressional minority, with little actual political power except by talking a lot and writing letters to the aggressive Democrats that are ignored, while accepting as many of the financial and other spoils that the majority congressional Democrat delegation allows.

I think the writer is way off base. No amount of wishful thinking is going to rekindle the Spirt of '16. Our great President Trump has (IMO) been too badly damaged by seven years of relentless Deep State antipathy to win a national election, even an honest one. And DeSantis should do exactly what poster # 3 suggests. We may have already crossed the rubicon, in which case no amount of thrashing around by the pundit class or internet posters will make any difference. # 7 has the right idea.

The fifties seem to have been the time that New York City peaked. By the sixties, California was on the ascent. And the critical blow that seems to have taken the heart out of the city was moving the Brooklyn Dodgers to Los Angeles. To this day, there are people who are bitter about it. Many of them were not even born when the Dodgers left, but they have inherited the marks of survivor's trauma. These individuals, who are generations removed from Ebbets Field, will still curse Walter O'Malley, the then team owner, for relocating the team.

What’s the modus operandi of our dystopian government? Creating a needless deadly crisis, blocking the effective way for dealing with it thereafter, and foisting upon the world instead a dangerous and ineffective way of dealing with it. That might sound a lot like COVID, but it’s largely what officials have been planning for a long time with energy, and now that the population is primed for lockdowns, disruptions, and total authoritarian control as a result of COVID, that is what they plan to do with our energy grid. All for a lie. This was the coldest Christmas in a half-century in much of the US

In 2010, Bill Gates famously articulated a four-part equation to reducing the world’s carbon output. Seemingly bizarrely, his first component was reducing the population — through vaccination. “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about nine billion,” bemoaned Gates in his now infamous TED Talk. “Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, 10% or 15%.” Until recently, I thought this must have been a gaffe. After all, how could vaccines reduce the world’s population? Well, enter the COVID jabs – if you even want to call them vaccines
Is ESG Destroying or Disguising the Profit Motive? 7 replies

It has long been contended that environmental, social, and corporate governance scores (ESG) are the Left’s attempt to weaponize every non-leftist’s money against his personal beliefs and economic interests. This is patently true . . . to an extent. Infiltrating and extorting the corporate and financial elite, the ESG zealots pressure and capture the levers of large economic investment institutions to implement the Left’s agenda. For investors who oppose their money being used to further left-wing causes at the expense of maximizing their returns, there is little they can do to “take their money elsewhere.”

Most Americans know something has gone terribly wrong—and very abruptly—with the United States. They are certain that our wounds are almost all self-inflicted. The current pathologies are not a result of a natural disaster, an exhaustion of natural resources, plagues, or an existential war. Crushing national debt and annual deficits, spiraling food and fuel costs amid “normal” seven-percent-plus annual inflation, bread-and-circuses entitlements, a nonexistent border, a resurgence of racial tribalism, pandemic violent criminality, and humiliation abroad—all these pathologies are easily cited as symptoms of a sick patient. Our crises are not as the Left maintains

In the 1870s, the term “robber baron” was first used to describe an exploitative class of industrialists who utilized their wealth to create monopolies of resources and amass control in the fledgling United States. The name describes an illegitimate aristocracy of unelected plutocrats. John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie; all American industrial royalty whose names line the streets of America and the pages of our history books. One hundred fifty years later, we face a new global class of robber barons. Once a year, the world’s richest and most influential people meet behind closed doors in Davos, Switzerland, to discuss the future direction of the globe.

But let history acknowledge the former U.S. senator from Kansas asked the very best question in the entire election cycle. “Where’s the outrage?” he thundered at a GOP event at the end of October 1996. Back then, the chief issue was the Clinton Administration’s use and abuse of 900 FBI files on their political opponents. Imagine! An American president using the FBI as his secret police!

This is one of those stories that you’re certain is from the Babylon Bee, and that is stunning in its implications when it turns out to be the truth. In this case, the truth is that, in accordance with UN and WEF climate recommendations, the city of Oxford (home to the famed university) approved plans mandating that citizens may not drive more than 15 minutes distance from their homes without permission. It’s called the “15 Minute City” and is intended to reduce auto emissions. Mostly, though, it will reduce liberty, which is what climate change madness has always been about.

Biological assimilation into femininity has long been the final frontier for transgender activists — a Rubicon they had not yet been able to fully cross. Aspirational transgenders can get various sordid surgeries to appear more feminine; they can adopt feminine social roles, but they could never really become fully biologically female. This nags at the LGBTQ+++™ community something fierce, as biological reality always belies the religious conviction that “transgender women are women,” full-stop. They wish they could menstruate because, like transgender Pinocchios, they want desperately to be real girls, despite the deep-seated and dysphoric knowledge that their goal is impossible.

President Joe Biden reportedly does not trust the Secret Service to protect him, even though the agency has appeared to slow-walk disclosing documents related to Hunter Biden’s alleged gun violations. According to Chris Whipple’s new book, “The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House,” Biden does not trust the Secret Service because some of them allegedly do not support him politically. “A bigger problem was Biden’s discomfort with his Secret Service detail; some of them were MAGA sympathizers. He didn’t trust them,” Whipple wrote. “The Secret Service is full of white ex-cops from the South who tend to be deeply conservative.” Whipple makes Biden appear paranoid

Italy was one of four countries that announced they would impose coronavirus restrictions on Chinese travelers because a massive wave of coronavirus infections is ripping across China, racking up millions of cases in a single day — but the tyrannical Chinese government decided to abandon almost all of its disease control protocols with almost no preparation for the consequences, loosen up travel restrictions, and begin handing out passports just in time for the Lunar New Year holiday.

A health expert has sharply criticized the Chinese regime’s lifting of international travel restrictions in the midst of a massive COVID wave sweeping through the country, saying the move is “extremely irresponsible” and could cause a global resurgence of the pandemic. The National Health Commission announced on Dec. 26 that the country would end all quarantine requirements for inbound travelers from Jan. 8, 2023. Travelers will need to obtain a negative PCR test within 48 hours of departure, it said. Currently, travelers entering China need to undergo five days of mandatory quarantine in an approved facility, followed by three days at home.
