It's a joke, right?

The Republican elite is desperate to figure out a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory despite the electorate being weary after eight years of Obama's misrule:
Jeb Bush is the clear Republican presidential frontrunner, surging to the front of the potential GOP pack following his announcement that he's "actively exploring" a bid, a new CNN/ORC poll found.

He takes nearly one-quarter — 23% — of Republicans surveyed in the new nationwide poll, putting him 10 points ahead of his closest competitor, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who tallied 13%.

Physician Ben Carson comes in third, with 7% support, and Sen. Rand Paul and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are both tied for fourth with 6%.
So, the Republicans have Bush III, Fatboy, and another token Negro on offer. 2016 looks like yet another election that I won't be voting Republican even if the Democrats run a ticket featuring Asmoedeus and Belial.

I find the nominal Carson support to be particularly amusing. "Look, we got one too" has never been a winning strategy. And that's especially true when everyone hates the previous one. It also makes it clear that no one got the "White Party" memo from the 2012 election.

It's nothing of the sort, of course. Expressing support for an absurd black "candidate" is merely the Republican way of begging "see, I'm not a racist... please don't hit me!"

Eh, no biggie. The media's been prattling about Jeb for a couple of weeks (their opening salvo in the attempt to pick the opponent in the charade prior to the coronation of President Symbol II, The Sequel) and now less than a quarter of Republicans say his name just to get off the phone sooner.

Not that I expect the Republicans to grow a brain before 2016, but this is just the media kissing its own ass.

Jebediah and Christopher are both cozy with Qatar, supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, so they won't be starved for cash.

Oddly enough, the US Chamber of Commerce are business partners with Qatar and support Jeb and Chris as well. Mitt, too, just in case.

We know Hillary is chewing Muslim Sisterhood rug, so I predict the next winner of the Presidency of the United States of America Corp. will be the Muslim Brotherhood.

There will never be a President elected in the US again who hasn't already run for some office. It will never happen. The stakes are too high. Other elections are training wheels. They teach candidates how to be candidates and they more importantly show the candidate how to take a few hits.

Every cycle there is some great new hope who has never run for anything before. It never will work. You need a few close elections to bring out the skeletons, make sure the candidate can handle the stress, and hold the line under fire. Otherwise you end up with Ross Perot and Herman Cain, looking good until the first time stuff gets sticky.

No sense getting worked up over a CNN poll based on their track record.
Giuliani was considered the frontrunner back in 2007, so a popularity poll a little less than 2 years out means nothing.
Trump is pretty popular in Iowa. He's tapped into what pisses off the majority on the right and left about the way this country's been run into the ground. Like Reagan, he doesn't care what his enemies call him and he hurls insults right back. I'd take him over George the 3rd, Christie, et al.

He has been appropriately schooled regarding 2nd amendment, so I don't hold against him his preconceived notions about guns based on his ghetto background.

Oh, for God's sake, wring out your underpants and get a grip. Bush is the front runner because there are no other Republican candidates. This poll they're pushing could just as easily have been called "name the first Republican politician you can think of." When people answered "Bush" they probably meant one of the Georges.

My prediction: the 2016 Presidential race will not feature either Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush. The Dems will pick yet another blank-slate Progressive to fall in love with, likely Warren or someone we've never heard of, and the Reps will probably nominate Perry or Ryan.

The GOP electoral strategy is to say "Jesus" during the primaries and "lower taxes" during the general election.

When elected, they rule exact like Democrats, except with a hostile media and supportive Whites. When Dems are in office, the situation reverses and you have a supportive media and hostile Whites.

Since the internet has crippled media's power of narrative, let's have a Dem president who faces a hostile White electorate.

The commenting was half broken when I use it with PaleMoon with my usual set of security extensions, but I should have those disabled here, but Blogger seems to use some complex redirects to who knows where.

I have to open just the IFrame with the comment box for it not to "just do nothing" when I hit publish.

Now It takes me longer to solve one Catchpa than to compose the post.

I could do pictures of faded addresses, or the single blob and the real word ("junk" seems to work 90% of the time for the latter regardless, I just have to get the one blob right). It was annoying and tedious but I could do it.

Now, most of the time, the picture now is a bunch of random letters, horribly distorted - rn and m in courier can't be distinguished, nor i, j, l, and that is before the black blob randomizes the pixels between them. And it seems to like the indistinguishable combinations like rmnmrnnmnn with the blob edges at the exact point where the difference between rn and m would be. After about 100 refreshes, I have a 25% chance of solving one. Sometimes before if I waited an hour or two, it would revert to one of the others, but this seems to be the new favorite.

The alternative audio versions sound like someone gargling in an echo chamber and I find them impossible to understand. My hearing is good but doesn't work well when there is a lot of echo or distortion.

Total agreement. Total absurdity.

The Republican party will never never become the white party. Why?

The Republican Party, started by Masons, i.e. the Brotherhood of Man, was the party of abolition, the freeing of the Black Man. It was the Republican Party that passed the Civil Rights Act.

The Republican Party has always been Liberal. Masons rule this country and their main doctrine is "The Brotherhood of Man", all men are brothers; there is no such thing as Race.

Besides not a single major religious leader has come out in support of Europeans. Without justification from religion, nationalism is dead in America. The Educational system is Marxist. Nationalism is a very minority opinion.

As Ann Barnhardt has said, the constitution is dead, the best thing is a junta, but all our Flag officers are globalist weanies. Most of them are Masons.

I see no relief. Hell, John Boehner was re-elected by his district. Boehner is an anti-male. He is the negation of manhood. If that is the Congressional leadership with patsy faced Kentucky senator, then European nationalism/protectionism is a sunk ship already.

It won't be Bush. His brilliant campaign plan is to run against the base. What this means is that he will be making a "vanity run". Realistically he has no chance and he knows it. Between the failures or his father and the disasters of his brother, 23% is pretty close to his natural ceiling.

The only real concern about a Jeb Bush run, is that it will make Chris Christie look reasonable by comparison.

If Christie starts to pull ahead look for Mitt Romney to jump in at the last minute, to run a spoiler campaign against Christie.

The Democrat ticket interesting due to a few fundamental problems. 2014 was a disaster for them. A lot their up and comers were shot down.

The Obama wing wants Warren but Warren won't play outside the progressive bubble.

The African American block have gotten used to seeing one their own on the throne and would like a repeat. However after Obama, no one else does. Cory Booker will not get the nod and won't even try. Al Sharpton might make for an amusing buffoon candidate but he doesn't seem to be putting out feelers.

Cuomo is dead outside of New York, thanks to gun control. Hickenlooper, same notation.

Jerry Brown is making noises about running and normally wouldn't be out of the question but he will be 78 in 2016. Not too old for a Prussian Field Marshall but a little too well seasoned for an American president.

Hillary is the default candidate but no one particularly wants her to run except for some beltway types and geriatric feminists. Government sponsored estrogen replacement isn't likely to go very far at the polls.

If the Democrats were sane at all they would pick...Jim Webb. It says a lot about the current state of the party that he is something of fringe figure within the party.

The Republican Party, started by Masons, i.e. the Brotherhood of Man, was the party of abolition, the freeing of the Black Man. It was the Republican Party that passed the Civil Rights Act.

The Republican Party has always been Liberal. Masons rule this country and their main doctrine is "The Brotherhood of Man", all men are brothers; there is no such thing as Race.


Rather than the Stupid Party and Evil Party, it's the Mason Party and Moron Party.

I just think it's an unfair comparison to say the American political system is like kabuki. Kabuki has structure and meaning. What we're stuck with is professional wrestling, with the Democrats being hyped as the "babyfaces" and the Republicans playing the "heels." I could really lay it on with the carny talk concerning the similarities, but suffice to say I'm as sick of politics as normal as I am the WWE.

Both Democrats and Republicans are touting Jeb Bush as the most potentially electable Republican candidate. That should tell any reasonable person that something is terribly wrong with that option.

Blogger Pseudotsuga December 30, 2014 6:00 PM  

IM2L844 -- right on--if the Democrats think he is the most electable, then we know it's a false flag operation. We need another Bush in the White House as badly as we need another Clinton.
Surely these people can't be serious about Jeb Bush, right, guys? Right? umm....guys?....

I am thinking that Dr. Carson is toast since his recent remark about how cops should be required to shoot criminals in the legs, not center mass.
I guess that he hasn't heard of a little thing called malicious wounding, that could get a cop into legal trouble. Then there is the problem that it has been pretty well established that most cops couldn't hit the side of a barn with a cannon, let alone a moving target's legs.

I'd like to hope so, but that will require that other Republicans attack him squarely on it, and that they manage to avoid being portrayed as rabid racists for it.

What percentage of the vote did immigration patriots like Tancredo get last time? Maybe 1%? I'd like to think there's that much more awareness out there today, but I'll believe it when I see it. I know it could be there if candidates nurtured it properly and didn't get shouted down, but that's been true for a while.

OpenID mattse001 December 30, 2014 6:38 PM  

Jeb not only supports open borders, but Common Core as well.
Either one would be fatal by itself. This is a vanity run, and Jeb will never be nominated.
If by some fraud he did get the nomination, you'd see the lowest GOP turnout in history.
Right now, I like Walker best.
He also ranks about #2 or #3 on opinion polls of conservative sites.
Hillary may run (about 75/25, as someone mentioned). She craves power and the Democratic Party is corrupt enough to run her. She's hated by half her own party.
IMO, the GOP will have a baked-in advantage, as people will be sick of Democrats after Obama.

Bellwether?

"Despite a rocky year for Democrats, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama and have both held on to their reign as the most admired man and woman in America, coming in with strong leads ahead of of Oprah Winfrey, First Lady Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin, Pope Francis and former President Bill Clinton, according to Gallup's annual poll.
.
.
.
Clinton, who is widely expected to announce a bid for president next year, has held the "most admired woman" title 17 times in the past 18 years - breaking the streak only once, in 2001, when then-First Lady Laura Bush snatched the top spot following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
.
.
.
Others on list of most admired men, include Dr. Ben Carson, astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates, Bill O'Reilly, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"

There you go, the people have spoken and no mention of Jeb Bush.

If you haven't learned anything from the past 20 years, learn it now. It doesn't matter who the Republican party members want. The party leadership will do anything required to ensure the person they want gets the nomination. And the person they want seems to be one of Bush, Christie, or Rubio.

The Wall Street Journal has encouraged him thusly, as well.

Clinton vs Bush redux. It's called Banksta Globalism and Oligarchy, aka Plutocracy.
It can also be called Cryptocracy.
Vote for your Republican. See what has already happened. Watch what now happens.

Well, Gene (Chip) Tatum will take care of Jeb Scherf. [1][2]

Now the real issue is Hillary. Vox, you pride yourself on exposing the Lizard Queen? Well, pack this in your pipe. (Smoke it if you like) ..

Larry Nichols like you have never heard him before. (Later is pre-debriefed [3]) by a [former] trained CIA op. [4]


-------------
[1] Ya, Bush is not their real name. These guys are real Nazis and worse.
[2] Tatum is former Pegasus. Pegasus were/are presidential assassins. They worked directly for the POTUS. He gave up when he was ordered to assassinate Perot. (Yes, that is Ross)
[3] I say pre-debriefed, because the actual debriefing will be done (or is now in progress) off-line/off-air.
[4] We think about the term "Lizard Queen." Some, highly sourced, claim Hillary is in fact a true Reptilian, and has a residence on Mars. (Ya, the planet). When we look into the likes of David and Mark Flynn, who claim that both Mars and Rahab were inhabitable at one time, we ask, where is their progeny? Well, here ya go. We're living history people.

Rush actually proposed a Jeb/Hillary ticket. He said their positions were almost identical, so it didn't really matter which one was the on top. But that comment ignored Hillary's preferences. Knowing what we do of her, she'd definitely be the one on top.

If that were true, Reagan would never have been elected. Unless you're saying that things have changed in the last 20 years.
The way I figure it, TPTB try to engender cynicism. They like low turnout.
I won't give them that satisfaction, not unless they present me with an impossible choice of two utterly horrible human beings. Otherwise, I'll vote just to spite them.

Every 20 years things change, sometimes quite radically. This isn't the 80s, which weren't the 60s, which weren't the 40s.

In part because that's the limit of social memory these days. If you want to write a best selling self help book, simply go to the library, find one that was a best seller 20 years ago, and rewrite it.

Blogger James Dixon December 31, 2014 9:15 PM  

Reagan was in 1980. That's 30 years ago, not 20. And the current situation was a direct response to his election by the leadership of the party. "Never again", they said.
