Mike and Milo won the election

Apparently the Washington Post is throwing in the towel early:
The only true winners of this election are trolls

The guiding lights of this crowd — people like the right-wing blogger Mike Cernovich and Breitbart tech columnist Milo Yiannopoulos — have become not only legends on their own hashtags, but leading figures in the offline Trump movement. Cernovich, an erstwhile pickup artist who is largely responsible for the rumors about Clinton’s health, encourages his followers to abide by the maxims “conflict is attention” and “attention is influence.” Yiannopolous, meanwhile, was famously suspended from Twitter for inciting the racist harassment of the actress Leslie Jones, which he defended on the grounds that he’s a “prankster.”

In other words, he harassed Jones as some sort of nihilistic joke — a metaphor for online culture, if I’ve ever heard one.
This is a quasi-concession that Trump is going to win. After all, there has been no bigger nor more successful troll this election season than the ascendant God-Emperor. As the Post writer herself writes:

Phillips is deeply concerned about figures like Cernovich and Yiannopoulos — and, above them, Trump himself. For surely no one else has been so successful at cynically exploiting cultural tensions to get a reaction. 

Mike has an entirely different take.
Based on what we know about the media cover-up of Hillary’s health, it’s clear sick Hillary had another health spell, which isn’t being reported. For no reason at all today, the media is lying about me in an effort to discredit my reporting on Hillary Clinton’s extensive health issues. Based on what we know about the media, it’s certain that Clinton had another health episode. Unlike at the 9/11 Memorial event, there was no one outside of the hoaxing media to report it.... Based on the media’s prior attacks on me, I predict another health event for Hillary soon. It’s likely that she had a recent episode on her airplane, outside of the prying eyes of citizen journalists.
That, or the Post writers know something even more damning is now on the boil behind closed doors. The health issue could, conceivably, be an excuse to permit her to drop out of the race quietly rather than be publicly forced out by a public arrest.

"...drop out of the race quietly rather than be publicly forced out by a public arrest."

Like hell, quietly. Should Hillary's dropping out of the race occur, it will more resemble the final fate of Mt. Doom and Barad-dûr, as depicted in Peter Jackson's film.

Probably the biggest fear the Dems have right now is that Hillary's ultimate fate (whether realized before or after the election) will burn the whole party to the water line. I mean, you can save those around you by throwing yourself on a live hand grenade, but a live nuclear weapon?

That would be some epic poetic justice for that nest of liars and thieves.

A telling observation. Plausible to many of the electorate. An, unfortunately, might result in her getting 'sympathy' votes.
As for fleeing to non-extradition countries, park a sub with nukes nearby and give them 48 hours to give up the garbage, alive, or else. First tactical into a relatively uninhabited area; second onto the capitol.

@23 if the financial/economic bubble is in its final weeks or months, my prediction is that most incumbents in both houses of Congress will "choose" not to run for reelection in 2018, and among those not up for reelection, more than a few will resign well before their terms are up.

And Illinois being Illinois, more politicians than ever will be thrown into the crowbar motel.

Blogger Ingot9455 November 03, 2016 2:55 PM  

I lay down my marker here.

I say that the best thing the Dems/Media did for us was to attack Trump so grossly unfairly, so beyond the bounds of social interaction that his Alpha nature had to respond.

At the beginning of all this, Trump was a liberal New York Republican-ish with some particular positions he'd been harping on since the '90s.

But now he's strongly anti-abortion in the third trimester, and has a laundry list of valuable things to say and he says them with conviction.

Remember that after Trump beat Cruz, he seemed to lay in the boots for a while? To keep attacking even after it was done? To keep throwing in some backhanded stuff?

That's the Alpha action (which I learned about here). He'll be the same way to the Press, and to the Dems who did him wrong, who lied, cheated, and stole all the way through this. He won't be a W. Bush-style 'gracious winner'. He'll grind them into the dirt until they figure out how to appease him - and fortunately for us that may be impossible for them.

It seemed to me the "coughing fits" were especially bad around late June/early July. Clinton may have been laying the ground for withdrawal before Comey let her off the hook the first time. And, yes, the coughing fits may be real but also something to exploit when necessary.

Maybe WikiLeaks has something particularly sordid it will dump in the a.m. or a health-related issue that is toxic.

They're liars. Mike is only "responsible" for the health rumors in the sense that he said, "Hey, look at this video! And this one! And this one! Here's what I think is happening!" Anyone was free to draw his own conclusions. Milo made one critical comment and was attacked by Jones as part of a concerted effort by Sony to build a mirage of sexism out of a handful of YouTube comments, because they knew their movie sucked and was going to get killed.

But they aren't completely stupid liars. This does sound like they're trying out a new "Trump won, but decent people can't be happy about it" narrative.

Blogger Cail Corishev November 03, 2016 3:24 PM  

@29, I tend to agree, and I'd add this: Before this campaign, Trump was not a guy who thought about social issues. His interest in politics was mainly economic, having to do with trade and taxes. He lived and worked primarily around people who were the same way, having center-left opinions on social issues if they had any at all.

Now in this election, he's been traveling around the country and meeting a different type of people, people who are passionate about issues like abortion and guns -- not because it's their job as a lobbyist, but because it comes from the gut. He's had a chance to hear from them, and he's seen how they've been his most loyal troops, while the party insiders who could quote the right authors and explain tax policy have stabbed him in the back every chance they got. Trump is sentimental, and he values loyalty over almost anything. I think he will want to keep his promises to those people who showed up at his rallies when the narrative was that he didn't have a chance, who wore MAGA hats when it could get you called a racist -- even if he wasn't totally committed when he first made the promises. Unlike the usual Republican strategy, he's been moving right during the general election, not toward the center, and I think that reflects an actual shift in his thinking.

This is how the press sees people outside the government-media-academia axis. Let's not forget what Peter Jennings said in 1994 when Republicans made big gains in the off-year election:

"Some thoughts on those angry voters. Ask parents of any two-year-old and they can tell you about those temper tantrums: the stomping feet, the rolling eyes, the screaming. It's clear that the anger controls the child and not the other way around. It's the job of the parent to teach the child to control the anger and channel it in a positive way. Imagine a nation full of uncontrolled two-year-old rage. The voters had a temper tantrum last week....Parenting and governing don't have to be dirty words: the nation can't be run by an angry two-year-old."

This may even be a back door deal with Trump (who made a visit with O not long ago, and of which we know very little). O, knowing the avalanche of corruption coming forth from the emails, knowing the monster vote is real, wants Trump to let the FBI stand down and have NYPD make the arrests, Guliani can pile on later- or not.
