1238

Donald Trump officially has enough delegates to become the Republican nominee:
It's official - Trump reaches the magic number of Republican delegates to clinch nomination. Donald Trump now has 1,238 delegates in the latest Associated Press tally of primary results and the intentions of the other party delegates. Trump was put over the top in the Associated Press delegate count by a small number of the party's unbound delegates who told the AP they would support him at the convention.

It ain't certain till it's certain. I'm still voting for him in California.

He should try to get 1488 delegates. For max lulz.

Somehow the establishment will dispute this because they of corse know better then the little people.

Yeah, I go through a lot of Mugatu "Am I taking crazy pills?!?" moments because my analysis is so frequently at odds with both the mainstrean and the alt-right's take. I never understood the whole "brokered convention" craze and thought it was some kind of mania, some kind of mass delusion. The numbers were what they were. Of course, I still need my pills.....

And we haven't even had the Cali vote yet. IIRC, there are about 5 more states whose votes are coming up.

Blogger Cory S May 26, 2016 1:48 PM  

Flippin' love the Trump...but do y'all think it will be a close general? I'm still worried about Killary a bit, and not sure how trump will do in debates.

Blogger Anchorman May 26, 2016 1:51 PM  

I'd worry less about Hillary beating Trump than the Dems pulling a Torricelli.

"And we haven't even had the Cali vote yet. IIRC, there are about 5 more states whose votes are coming up."

I live in CA and debated voting at this point since he clenched, however I want to see how much he can pick up in a "blue" state...so I'll be at the polls in June.

Thank you for making this video, Aryan Wisdom!

Wait, what?

Blogger Anchorman May 26, 2016 1:55 PM  

If the Dems sense she will lose, they will pull a Torricelli (drop a badly damaged candidate and put in a face that opposition can't take down fast enough).

I think the "tell" will be if the Dems ask for all to hold off on early voting or try to delay the ballot printing/early voting.

Blogger praetorian May 26, 2016 1:59 PM  

If trump gets to 1488 delegates, I will sacrifice my photoshop at the altar of kek.

Even better, Sanders has agreed to debate Trump before 6/7!

And he will be at the Rolling Thunder biker rally in DC this weekend.

The Trump Train's disruptors are firing on full power.

The egyptian frog-headed god thingy is freaky. What are the odds?

Blogger TheLiberatorOfBados May 26, 2016 2:14 PM  

Just remember: Bill Clinton NEVER won the popular vote in either election he was in. He won because conservatives/Reagan democrats splintered off to vote for Ross Perot in both elections. So Bill isn't going to be an asset for Hillary, and it's already clear he's a liability.

Hillary is VERY weak, and is why the Establishment Media is trying very hard to inflate her chances at beating Trump. She is BADLY disliked and is even more greatly distrusted. Trump may not be liked but nobody is voting for him just because they like him but because they want someone who can get shit done, which he has a very reliable track record of doing.

Hillary may wind up dropping out or being pushed out, but there's really nobody that the Dems can install that can compete with Trump. Sanders getting the nomination would be apocalyptic for the entire Uniparty as both parties would have been usurped by populists movements/candidates, leaving the Establishment hapless in meddling with the election.

Either way, we're watching a political paradigm shift happen in real time. Trump is aligning the Republican Party from a Neocon Country Club into a populist nationalist party. There's no telling how the existing Democrat party can reform itself to oppose this. Trying to become a "globalist" party would completely destroy the party. It's why the Democrat turnout in the primaries is so much smaller than the Republican primaries. Even socialists know there's only so much free shit to go around, and executive amnesty would just mean less free shit for everyone. Also, I can't imagine what's going on in Venezuela right now is escaping people's attention as to what the end result of socialism in any form.

Now all we gotta do is flush out the rest of the Necons from the Republican party. They can have their own party. Likely it'll only be comprised of themselves.

No disagreements. It still blows my mind away that pepe the frogman was memed with "top kek" long before anybody on the message boards found out that kek is an actual, bonafide frogman god of chaos, darkness and -repeating numbers/mantras- who also heralds the arrival of the dawn.

Yea, that symbol for him being a man at a "computer" with an infinity tower...heh

What really got me was finding out the alternate name and pronunciation for kek is....wait for it....."kuk".

That registers an 8 on my weird-shit-o-meter.

Sorry Jourdan. But at least I will never use the other more insulting terms for the state. I have a love/hate relationship with California for many reasons. But if you still live there, you should be getting out while you still can sir.

I've never referred to California as "Cali" before. Cali is kinda stupid, and who knew it would cause you pain?

I'll have to start.

I'm not worried in the slightest about Trump V Hillary.

What I am worried about is Hillary's superdelegates abandoning her like they did in 2008. Her poll numbers are tanking, her favorability is terrible, I know a LOT of democrats out here and none of them like her.

Meanwhile, Bernie is still slaughtering Trump by 20 points and has the mindless SJW cult vote.

OpenID countenance May 26, 2016 3:47 PM  

They said it was the strongest, most interesting Republican field in a very long time.

Donald Trump just beat 'em all.

Let that sink in.

And draw your own conclusions.

Because I already have.

New Jersey should go heavily Trump. And by all means, vote in California! I voted in WA state and it did help. The bigger the vote, the more pull over the delegates. WA state went 79% for Trump and 40 of 41 of the delegates appointed are Cruz supporters.

Bernie would get slaughtered by Trump in the debates. He's not nearly as nimble, charismatic, or knowledgeable as Trump (and I don't consider Trump all that up-to-speed on presidential issues). It would literally be a replay of Reagan/Mondale.

Blogger Anchorman May 26, 2016 4:44 PM  

To put it another way, he can't beat Hillary, who is a walking meme generator.

What happens when he tries to take on someone who can dominate a roomful of mega-personalities and talk past the media gate guards?

Mere coincidence falls well within the bounds of plausibility. It is fairly likely that meaningful three-letter strings will pop up in a simple cipher, particularly if we're including translations of obscure lore.

This isn't a meaningful question in probability. But the most likely scenario is that the string "kek" became a meme by accident, and afterward someone who knew about this obscure frogman god successfully pushed the Pepe meme. The extent of supernatural influence in the latter process is debatable, but it could easily be zero.

:-) Denial of the supernatural has recently become quite impossible. Doesn't mean everything is supernatural. It could be, but the jury's out.

Now, I can't go into detail because the details are apparently too distracting to get to the abstract conclusion, but I can say with 100% certainty that telepathy is possible. There's a lot I can speculate, but that is 100% true.

It's premature for the AP to announce Trump has enough delegates based on some undocumented canvas of unpledged delegates. Trump will get there soon enough anyway without them.

You should realize it's the people who call it Cali who are the problem. It's one reason it grates on us, that it reminds us how many idiots we allowed to immigrate into the state and destroy it.

55. Jack Amok: WE did not allow anybody to immigrate. We tried to keep the trash out. The Feds refused to guard the borders. My question to anyone who bitches about Californians moving to their state is, "How did your Senator vote on immigration?"

And what is this "Cali" business? Something that came from TV? That little woman Snookie from Atlantic City or wherever?
