Is there nothing he can't do?

The God-Emperor is liberating men from their ill-considered marriages to angry, batshit-crazy women:
“Shortly after the election is when I became aware of it,” says Lois Brenner, a New York–based divorce attorney. “People were thinking about splitting up their marriages because of political differences.” She’d never encountered this before, but she’s since found herself litigating two such divorces. “After people got over their shock,” she says, “they started arguing.”

By now it’s a truism to point out that the election of Donald Trump and the #MeToo movement have prompted a wholesale realignment of American politics. But it’s also sent shock waves through heterosexual romance.

Donald Trump and the Republican Party have plenty of female supporters, of course, especially among white women. But politically speaking, as evidenced by the recent midterms, there is an undeniable, and growing, gender divide in American politics: In 2018, almost 60 percent of female voters supported Democrats, compared to 47 percent of male voters — outpacing the gap in other recent elections. What can make matters unworkable for couples whose viewpoints aren’t aligned, says Stephanie Coontz, a professor of family studies at Evergreen State College, is that Americans have become increasingly contemptuous of those who hold different positions on divisive political issues — and contempt is singularly destructive for long-term relationships. “Mary Matalin and James Carville,” says Coontz. “How the hell do they make it work?”       

Many people with divergent perspectives from their partners have not been able to make it work in the Trump era. A Reuters/Ipsos poll completed in early 2017 found that in the months following Trump’s election win, 13 percent of 6,426 participants had cut ties with a friend or family member over political differences. This past summer, another survey of 1,000 people found that a third declared the same. More generally, 29 percent of respondents to a May 2017 survey said their romantic relationship had been negatively affected by Trump’s presidency. And even people ostensibly on the same side of the issues as their partner have run into challenges, with the climate exacerbating or revealing new fault lines. Herewith, two couples, and four individual women — all except the final pair using pseudonyms — talk about how conflict over politics is testing, or even ending, their relationships.
This is what software engineers describe as "a feature, not a bug." It's also Exhibit 47,339 in Why Female Suffrage was a Cataclysmic Mistake.

>> “Mary Matalin and James Carville,” says Coontz. “How the hell do they make it work?”

Having heard Mary Matalin on the radio back in the 1990's, when she substitute hosted for Limbaugh a couple of times -- she's as crazy as Carville is, and has not a single consequential thought in her head.

And she's boring.

How does Carville put up with her? Probably by viewing her as nothing more than a self-propelled blow-up sex doll.

I had a pal whose ex wife didn't speak to him for a week when he said about the whole Ferguson Missouri issue, "I really think that guy should be judged by his character."
She stated that she didn't know she was married to a bigot or some garbage like that. They were married for about a year after that until she left him for some other idiot that she probably met at some communist yoga class or whatever.

Oh yeah, and the woman I was talking about eventually ended up in a federal jail for wire fraud. After she divorced my pal, about a year later, she tried to set up a wire withdrawal from their former joint bank account. This was well after he had paid all of his financial obligations to her decided upon by the courts. Chick was an asshole for sure. Plus their son came out as gay and she was ECSTATIC about it. Like it was the best thing that had ever happened. Hell, she was probably coaching the poor kid all along. Totally disgusting.

And my pal isn't even pro-Trump. Just a moderate. My wife doesn't like Trump so I told her to not vote because she had no idea what any of the issues were. She did vote, but told me she went ahead and voted for Trump because Hillary frightened her. It was the "we came, we saw, he died, hahahaaha." that got her. That was the best thing Hillary ever did was say that sentence. It showed normal people how incredibly fucking evil she actually is.

If your wife is following politics you're doing something wrong. How on earth does she have time for that?

No that is a worthwhile study. How many gay/transgender people come from broken homes vs traditional homes. In the traditional homes, what was the mother like? absent workaholic? political harpy? Had an oedipal relationship with the child? I bet the instances of gay/transgenders coming from a traditional loving family with no instances of abuse are astronomically lower.

Women always do what they are told, you simply might not like who they obey. My advice as bitter a pill as it might be is that you have ruthlessly DISCREDIT & DISQUALIFY those influences, not try to play intellectual Ol' Conservative Papa with all the answers delivered with soothing emotional tones.

And use the female imperative to hierarchy against them, we men jabber on and on about race, women it's more about class (hierarchy). Years ago I caught the family females watching Maury Povitch and internally while maintaining my frame I was shitting bricks till I casually asked them why they were watching that shit, they responded to laugh at the morons, much relief and things have been good to great.

Blogger Johnny November 28, 2018 8:25 AM  

Just a thought on the evolution of these things. Prior to feminism came the modern home appliances. Plus food and fabrics and materials in general that required less work to put into service. That produced women who were idle most of the time once the children left home. Thus the women who worked a brief period prior to marriage, and than again, later in life because otherwise she was idle.

Getting them back into the house isn't that workable because there isn't that much to do in the house. Modern life has displaced the female role more than the male.

So when your children have gay offsprings it could be your or the 3 grandparents fault.

Skimming the article, I'm unsurprised to see that it's the women who are breaking things off. They couldn't find a single man to say he was leaving his wife over politics. I'd guess that in most cases it's a divorce that would have happened anyway a few years down the road when she got bored and unhaaaapy, but politics is pushing it up.

Islam is not necessarily any proof against feminism; women in the middle east in the 13th and 14th centuries were agitating to get into male-only professions until the Mongols put a stop to that. Besides, it itself is getting pozzed.

The only way that female emancipation has been rolled back is hardship, conquest and collapse.

That is not messed up, it is the natural order. Men are smarter and less emotional than women, it works better all round if men run things, this goes for the wife as well.

What modern husbands fail to understand, is that the woman is THEIR responsibility. You are in dereliction of your familial duties, if you let your woman chase around after every whimsical impulse that passes through her brain.

Millennials believe it is a great virtue to rise above politics in relationships. Offhand I can think of four couples we’re close with made up of a raging SJW commie and a cucky libertarian type. All have over time dragged the libertarian left or at least enforced their silence. All were warned that politics matter as a reflection of deeper values, but they wanted to believe their were above such trivialities. Now they can’t leave the relationship without losing their self-image as a Good Person.

Women's suffrage also never made sense in that a married man and his wife both get a vote, meaning they could potentially vote against each other. Since marriage is supposed to be a TOTAL union of two people's lives how could that ever be allowed to be the case? The married couple should get a joint vote.

Furthermore, only married couples should be allowed to vote, but that's a whole other topic...

And then launched into a lascivious rant about one presumably, and the producers in the other room could hear him and were telling Tucker in his mic to get him to shut up.

Tend to agree with a lot of folks here on limiting voting to certain segments, and especially with the abject failure that is the 19th Amendment. Thankfully, the wife and I just happen to be (for the most part) on the same political wavelength, and living in a heavily blue area, it's not a challenge for us when we vote since we tend to toe the same line.

Blogger Brian Dean November 28, 2018 10:36 AM  

I would put it this way. Suppose there existed a house that you THINK is yours. However, you aren't allowed to control who goes into your house and who doesn't. Furthermore, you aren't allowed to prevent the people from staying in the house for as long as they want (even if it's many years) or eating the food there. After trying to keep people from sleeping in your house, because you are a decent guy, you confront either the mother or the father (and don't bother the children). However, after doing so, you are blamed for separating the mother from her children. If you are stupid enough to go along with all of this, can you honestly say the house, or anything in it, is really yours?

With the most common female bedroom fantasy based on all surveys being male force, and modern women playing this publicly offended, privately dominated game, maybe western men need to act like men again and treat the women like women. As a young millennial, you know how many millennial girls privately beg to be dominated? Frankly, it’s almost off-putting. But I think it speaks to a larger piece of the civilizational puzzle that is missing.

It's the progressive who makes these relationships untenable. It is the progressive who wants to ruin the family Thanksgiving etc. They just cannot shut up about all of their very important thoughts.

The story involving Geoff is not very believable. You have to wonder if these stories are fabricated in order to push the poz into existence. Some self-righteous woman who normally keeps her mouth shut reads this and decides, yeah, I want to ruin my marriage to virtue signal about the poor minorities getting gunned down by the cops for no reason whatsoever. It's like another Shoah, only now I get to play the hero of the story!

Is there any way to put the Female Suffrage Genie back in the bottle?


allow States to reinstitute property requirements for Suffrage. that would instantly shed the vast majority of Single Mothers and Carousel Riders from the voter rolls.


Gonna have to specify that the property owners must be US citizens, other wise you still have a bunch of foreigners voting.

I think you're right about that, the newfound idleness of women is a big factor. That and birth control, such that women have less children to care for. There was no time for outside work, much less politics, when you had 8 children to take care of and no modern appliances to help wash and clean and cook.

I think social media is whats really amped up the political zealotry though. It'd be extremely rare to hear of stories like these even 20 years ago. But social media and the continued isolation from ones real-space local community combine to create a self-selected community. This is extremely seductive, especially so to post-wall women with no young children to care for or grandchildren to dote on (or they are all far away.) Women must find their self-worth somewhere, and the manufactured political soap operas not only provide drama but instill feelings of superior intelligence and morality while also satisfying the inner urge to care for others. It lets women be--in their mind and reinforced by their social media circles--both victim and savior to the world; the image of Daenerys as "mhysa" is a subconscious fantasy for most such women.

In addition to requiring property ownership there should also be a requirement to have at least two children and be married to their other parent.
Married women with children are alleged to be more stable and such a law may not require an amendment.

"The story involving Geoff"

Never trust any boy or man raised by parents who named him "Geoff" instead of "Jeff." He'll never be someone who you can trust to not turn his back on you, with or without stabbing you in the back as part of the process.

Johnny wrote:Just a thought on the evolution of these things. Prior to feminism came the modern home appliances. Plus food and fabrics and materials in general that required less work to put into service. That produced women who were idle most of the time once the children left home. Thus the women who worked a brief period prior to marriage, and than again, later in life because otherwise she was idle.

Getting them back into the house isn't that workable because there isn't that much to do in the house. Modern life has displaced the female role more than the male.


This is all nonsense. Look at the actual voting patterns and demographic studies. While there are some married women who remain leftists - probably those with the misfortune to have married soyboys and gammas - the feminist disease is spread overwhelmingly by single white women, of all ages but worse on the younger side.

Audacious did a study of the data and showed that there was roughly a 30-point marriage gap in the 18-29 age range, which only narrowed to 20 points at 60+.

I think OGRE has it right. It's social media that's causing the worst problems right now. It's never been easier for any woman, but especially a younger woman, to make herself the center of attention and inflate her ego and sense of entitlement. And feminism is ultimately just weaponized hypergamy and entitlement. Older women who use social media are now also being subjected to "you deserve more" whisperings at an unprecedented rate; for married women, that leads to divorce, and for unmarried/divorced women, it leads to socialism.

Technology is not exclusively or - in my opinion - even primarily responsible for cultural problems. Even if this did have something to do with female "idleness" in marriage, that's far more likely to be a result of families not having nearly enough kids.

Something has always seemed off about her. Can't really put my finger on it except for one video where she started out talking about trying to manage the video while she was breastfeeding. Maybe it's also the thumbnails she has on her videos. Very trad-thotty and attention-seeking in appearance. She also doesn't protect her kids from the camera.

Blogger K G November 28, 2018 2:03 PM  

I suppose. Or that females have been given such rampant freedom from consequence and rules that they now seek extreme versions of them. So if males fail to subjugate them in public life, they demand them in private. Whether they comprehend it or if it is an intentional shit test is another question. But I will say that I’ve seen this in 100% of my female peers.

Sometimes it cannot be avoided, like at your work. They bring up politics, they won't shut up about it.
I do agree that hosts should just not invite these people and they should tell them why. This has never been a problem in my family, but every holiday that involves family gatherings will have endless MSM articles about handling your "racist" uncle, brother-in-law or grandfather (always men).

I really do not know how many political divorces remained after 2008. My wife changed the locks on the house the week before she went to the Texas Democrat Convention in 2008 as an Obama Delegate. It took me six months to recover my clothes, my computer, books, papers, tools and video collection. I was given eight hours to remove my junk and she was heavily guarded by her girlfriends the whole time.

Two years later, I was in Germany when I was notified that the divorce hearing was scheduled for Monday. I flew into Little Rock on Friday and drove to Austin the next day. No idea what difference my being there made.

How many marriages survived 2008 to still have political differences in 2016, I cannot imagine.

There is no orderly way to alter the universal voting franchise in this country. No one is going to vote in favor of giving up their vote in the future and they may actually be the majority of the voters.

So the only way to alter who actually votes in this country is to remove everyone from voting and not have any voting whatsoever for a period of time. Limited voting rights can be restored in the transition to civilian rule.

This is not entirely unprecedented in our history, referring to the Reconstruction Era in the South, and the Oliver Cromwell attempt at Republican government in English history, a century before the American Revolution.

The Obamas are still fresh in a lot of people's minds, for good and bad reasons. The left really had nowhere else to go in terms of developing a workable 'family unity' model. There's only so many times one witnesses Barry and Mike swooshing in some extravagant setting, or Ellen Degeneres and her wife grinding away before one realizes the fantasy has met cold, ugly reality.

Female suffragettes were terrorists:



''The earliest terrorist attack was at the Theatre Royal in Dublin. Petrol was scattered, fires lit and three bombs went off, all while the theatre was full. No one died but it suggests a serious willingness to risk human life. This attack was carried out by fully paid-up central organisers of the WSPU.

Many of the bombs were aimed at causing maximum destruction and it was only through sheer luck and incompetence that deaths did not result. A bomb planted outside the Bank of England would, if it had not been defused by a policeman, gone off in a busy commercial area mid-afternoon. A bomb at Lime Street station, Liverpool, was packed with nuts and bolts to maximise harm. A bomb containing 24 cartridges of gunpowder was placed in the toilets of a theatre to go off during a matinee performance. The congregation at St John’s, Smith Square, had to put out a bomb containing 5½lb of gunpowder. Another bomb was lobbed into a full Territorial Army barracks.

Suffragettes burned down a great many houses and mansions (96 if you include the hotels). If you were a prominent member of society who had spoken out against the suffragettes your house was particularly liable to be attacked. The fact that such houses often had domestic staff living in them, who were on occasion nearly trapped by the fires, did not cause the perpetrators concern.

There were assassination attempts. Prime Minister Herbert Asquith had a hatchet thrown at him when he was visiting Dublin. It missed but sliced the cheek and ear of John Redmond, leader of the Irish Nationalists. Potentially lethal letter bombs were sent to Lloyd George and Henry Curtis Bennett, the chief magistrate at Bow Street. When this was unsuccessful two suffragettes attempted to throw Curtis Bennett off a cliff at Margate.

The suffragette projects became increasingly sophisticated. One involved planting a large bomb at Windleden reservoir near Barnsley. Had they been successful the whole valley would have been flooded with consequent loss of life and livelihood. They also planted two bombs underneath the Loch Katrine Aqueduct which supplied half of Glasgow with water. Luckily the lit fuses burned out before detonation on both bombs, perhaps due to the bad weather.''

The woman's English is poor. How could people become "increasingly contemptuous" of those who disagree with them on "divisive" issues? Being contemptuous towards those with whom one disagrees on divisive issues is practically tautological.

Bingo. If your wife is investing her time in politics (unless it's to help your campaign), she's lost faith in your ability to lead and provide.
