Didn't I see this somewhere before?

Trump as Constantine.   I did, I did! ( in a Tweety Bird voice )

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, I might add this:  Trump is really playing footsie with Hillary.  He has the resources to crush her.  Lord knows he has the cause.  If he loses, it can only be his own fault.

Hillary is a doddering old fool of fools.  Everything she touches becomes a disaster.  She's the reason that her husband got impeached.  Why??????  Because Bill Clinton could have settled with Paula Jones and ended the lawsuit that resulted in the impeachment.  If you doubt this, read up on it.  Hillary insisted that they fight it, when a settlement would have ended it, and you would have never heard of Monica "Blewhimsky". 

She's the reason for a number of Clinton misadventures while he was president.  The travel office scandal, remember that?   The health care fiasco?

She's a disaster waiting to happen.

She's also sicker than a dog.

She's the perfect representative of a failing idea, which is globalism.  Unless Trump is a closet globalist himself, and is only kidding around, he should win this one going away.   All he has to do is put her away.

You don't need a Caesar nor even a Constantine.  You just need the will to win.  Does Trump have that, or is he just kidding around?

Why did Rome fall?

asks Randall Parker of Parapundit.

There are as many opinions on this subject as there are those who offer one.  Certainly, there has been a study of it here on this blog.

Quality of leadership seems like the best explanation.  Once Marcus Aurelius broke the pattern of selecting a good successor, Rome immediately began its decline.

Leadership can make or break a society.  If you were to compare modern American leaders to the Founders, the comparison would favor the Founders by a large margin.  The Founders made a nation, the current leadership is losing a nation.  That's the difference.

Rock the boat, or float the boat?

Barnhardt, as you may know, doesn't believe in our election system.  From her point of view, it is all kabuki theater, meaning that the outcome is predetermined.

Her latest is an explanation for what happens to political donations.  Or some political donations.  Very corrupt.

Now, the thing that got me thinking is that Dick Morris has noted that the Donald needs to run some TV ads.  He's not doing it.  That's true even though he has plenty of money.  Small donations are coming in at quite a clip, according to Morris.  Nope, he's not spending the money even though the campaign is flush with cash.

What's the deal?

I always figured that the Donald would want to win because of ego.   But what if I was wrong?  What if money is more important to him than his ego?  If money is more important than ego, he may just keep the money.  I think that he gets to keep what he doesn't spend.

That one either floats your boat or it sinks it.

Not a happy thought, that.  Romney coulda, shoulda, woulda won if he really wanted to.  Let's not have a repeat of that.

Unnecessary problems

You may have heard about the yahoo security breach.  It is like a lot of things in our society right now.  None of this is necessary.

What causes it?  Really, there is no need for this problem if security was a priority in this society.  Evidently, making money is more important than security.  If everybody made the money, maybe it would be more easy to swallow.  But I suspect it is for the convenience of fat cats.  Your security is at risk, not theirs.

The fat cats favor globalism.  Globalism must be defeated.

More propaganda from the Never Trumper angle

In the effort to cast Trump voters as racist, bigoted, homophobes - the globalists have trotted out a "conservative intellectual" who attempts once again to explain why the globalists are having such a tough time fooling the voters this time.

It is the same tired old formulation from the race baiting playbook.  If you don't support the status quo, it is only because you are a bad person.

By the way, I have no doubt that there are many Trump supporters who are making the mistake of returning racial animosity for racial animosity.  Have no doubt, that to return hatred-for-hatred is really a bad idea, especially now.  It is easy to see why one would feel that way, however.  The hostility for white voters is so thick that you can cut it with a knife.  It is automatically assumed that such people are just no darned good.  For one to confirm that judgement in such a way as to validate the judgement is the type of trap that must be avoided if victory is to be secured.  The left would love to play up such events and would even make them up in order to keep the races divided against each other. 

The reason the globalists must lose is that their policies are failing.  It doesn't do anybody of any race any good to have a failing nation.  On that score, all people of all races should be able to unite under a single banner. 

The globalists need for there to be racial division.  They need the division because they need to be able to divide and conquer the nation for globalism.  If all people of all races understood what the globalists are up to, they wouldn't stand a chance.

Making America Great is for everybody, not just poor white folks.  But the globalists don't want you to see it that way.  So they try to fool people into hating each other on the basis of race.  To allow oneself to be tricked like this would be a tragedy for the nation.


RFK speechwriter will vote for Trump

He says that the Democrats have become a War Party.  Close enough.  They joined the globalists, who generally favor war like the neo-cons do.

If there's any real difference between current Democrats and current Republicans, it is the willingness of the current Republicans to send ground forces into a war.  Democrats may be more restrained, but they are hardly the peace party, as Adam Walinsky says.

Trump may show more restraint than his GOP colleagues.  Perhaps that is why they opposed him with such vehemence.  The current GOP is dominated by neo-cons and globalists.  The GOP opponents of Trump, the Never Trumpers, want to get bogged down in endless war.  This is a loser from the start.

Hillary may blunder her way into war with China and Russia.  She certainly did not distinguish herself with her misadventures in Libya.

Simple v. Complex

Rush Limbaugh tries to explain in a complex way the mindset of the Never Trumpers.  My explanation is different from that because it is simple.  Simple may be confused as ignorant, I suppose.

The simple explanation is that the Never Trumpers are globalists.  Trump isn't globalist, so they'll never support Trump.  Trump challenges them too much in a fundamental way.

Somewhere along the line, globalism got into the mainstream as conservative thought.  It has not always been so.  If Trump wins, globalism will shrink in importance, and this is why they say that "conservatism will be ruined" with a Trump victory.  However, the Never Trumpers don't care about the other factors that make up conservative thought.  They aren't necessarily small government conservatives.  If Trump governs as a big government conservative, then how is he any different from a lot of "conservatives" who have governed in the past?  He isn't different in that way, so he doesn't ruin conservatism any further than a lot of big government conservatives have in the past.  Therefore, it isn't big government conservatism that they oppose, it is the globalism that is in jeopardy.  The never Trumpers cannot allow Trump to put globalism aside.

Bush the elder will vote for Hillary.  Makes perfect sense if you are a globalist, as he undoubtedly is.  Bush doesn't care about conservative principles.  How does a Hillary presidency further conservative principles in that regard?  He is voting for Hillary because Hillary won't challenge what he really cares about, which is globalism.

Obligatory, 9.20.16

Trying to post on a very weak connection.  There was an attempt to boost the signal, but that won't work.  Now I am going to have to try something else.  Hopefully that will work.

It was a lot of effort that has come to naught.

Not in a great mood now.

Hillary floundering?

She brings up the "birtherism" issue, when it was her campaign that started it.

Trump says Hillary started it and he finished it.

So much for the 40 state victory that she was supposed to get.  There's a good chance she will lose, if this is any indication.  The source for the link above is The Hill, which isn't a conservative nor GOP site.  It isn't the only such story on The Hill, either.

Trump Is Right: Clinton Stooge Sid Blumenthal Spread “Birther” Rumor In 2008

Trump Is Right: Clinton Stooge Sid Blumenthal Spread “Birther” Rumor In 2008


There was some hard feelings between the Obama campaign and the Hillary campaign in 2008, remember?  Maybe it was because of things like this.

Evidently, the feelings lasted beyond the campaign as Obama refused to let Hillary hire her hatchet man, Sid Blumenthal.

The one who smelt it, dealt it

In response to the accusation that the accused had been "cutting the cheese".  To which the phrase in the title was uttered.  The point is that to shift the blame for one's own fault, one blames someone else. 

Hillary is in effect, blaming Trump for "cutting the cheese" when the stinky smell is emanating from this cast of clowns in power right now.  It was Obama and Hillary who created ISIS, not Trump.  To blame Trump for ISIS is beyond ridiculous.

But in order to have accountability, one must not be fooled by the politicians.

Hillary smelt it, because she dealt it.

Slow progress being made

There's a wireless booster on the way, which I hope will give me more convenient internet access.  If that works, which I am not sure about, then regular posting could resume.

Other things are happening as well.  I flipped a breaker yesterday, which was stupid of me.  I shoulda known better than to overload the circuit like that.  A learning curve for this, and other things.

Right now, I am looking for rooms in Houston at a more reasonable rate than what I paid last week.  Looks like I might find one.  If so, then I could work about half the time, and stay in my new place about half the time.  That will have to do for the time being.

The TV situation is bad.  No reception except for one station.  Even though I don't watch much TV, if there's no internet, that leaves only radio.  Still don't know the stations in the area, but I am learning.

The situation is far from normal, but things are improving.  I'll be back to normal soon, I hope.
