The Donald has the Big Mo

Camille Paglia pointed out the rise of Donald Trump at Clinton's expense out even before news of the polls that already show Trump beating Crooked Hillary by three points (Fox) and five points (Rasmussen):
Zap! If momentum were a surge of electromagnetic energy, Donald Trump against all odds has it now. The appalled GOP voters he is losing seem overwhelmed in number by independents and crossover Democrats increasingly attracted by his bumptious, raucous, smash-the-cucumber-frames style. While it’s both riveting and exhilarating to watch a fossilized American political party being blown up and remade, it’s also highly worrisome that a man with no prior political experience and little perceptible patience for serious study seems on a fast track to the White House. In a powder-keg world, erratic impulsiveness is far down the list of optimal presidential traits.

But the Democratic strategists who prophesy a Hillary landslide over Trump are blowing smoke. Hillary is a stodgily predictable product of the voluminous briefing books handed to her by a vast palace staff of researchers and pollsters—a staggeringly expensive luxury not enjoyed by her frugal, unmaterialistic opponent, Bernie Sanders (my candidate). Trump, in contrast, is his own publicist, a quick-draw scrapper and go-for-the-jugular brawler. He is a master of the unexpected (as the Egyptian commander Achillas calls Julius Caesar in the Liz Taylor Cleopatra). The massive size of Hillary’s imperialist operation makes her seem slow and heavy. Trump is like a raffish buccaneer, leaping about the rigging like the breezy Douglas Fairbanks or Errol Flynn, while Hillary is the stiff, sequestered admiral of a bullion-laden armada of Spanish galleons, a low-in-the-water easy mark as they creak and sway amid the rolling swells.

The drums had been beating for weeks about a major New York Times expose in the works that would demolish Trump once and for all by revealing his sordid lifetime of misogyny. When it finally appeared as a splashy front-page story this past Sunday (originally titled “Crossing the Line: Trump’s Private Conduct with Women”), I was off in the woods pursuing my Native American research. On Monday, after seeing countless exultant references to this virtuoso takedown, I finally read the article—and laughed out loud throughout. Can there be any finer demonstration of the insularity and mediocrity of today’s Manhattan prestige media? Wow, millionaire workaholic Donald Trump chased young, beautiful, willing women and liked to boast about it. Jail him now! Meanwhile, the New York Times remains mute about Bill Clinton’s long record of crude groping and grosser assaults—not one example of which could be found to taint Trump.
Mondalean proportions. That's how bad it is going to be, assuming Hillary doesn't admit her health issues and withdraw before she is subject to a historic humiliation.

@4 Coulter redefines "eviscerated" in that piece.

The optimist in me sees this election cycle (and the dust-up surrounding it) as signalling that the Left-Lunatic trend of recent years, in a blow-off topping rally represented by WW-T, is in the midst of a reversal as large as was Crude Oil in 2008.

I hope my optimism isn't misplaced.

I vote for the historic humiliation. She's earned it, give it to her good and hard. Make sure she knows her loss was all about her, a figure of revulsion and despite that kick and spit on as she wanders by on the street, alone.

The only thing that might be even better than a good Trumping is losing the nomination to the geriatric wacko who couldn't run a dog kennel.

Anonymous Philalethes May 19, 2016 12:16 PM  

I didn't see how Obama won a second term either.

Obama was given a second term by the Republican wing of the Uniparty, only following orders. Just as the Republican "Party" intended to give it to Hillary this time. It was all planned.

And it may still be all planned. David Icke and Brother Nathanael – yes, I know they're nutcases, but then so is nearly everybody reading this blog, if you consult the "experts" – both think that Trump was put into the mix by the very Establishment which has been pretending to be horrified about him. After all, if they really wanted him out of the running, the banks could have throttled him somehow – just a little computer "glitch" could have tied up his $billions for long enough to immobilize him.

So we don't know. What we do know is what Hillary is – and, pace Camille, whom I've enjoyed for years but who isn't as smart as she thinks she is – what Bernie is. Either will do everything e can to ensure the rapid and total destruction of America.

It's just possible that Trump may truly be a wild card, that the Establishment has, for the moment at least, lost the total control over everything that many think it has. I rather doubt even he can "Make America Great Again", but at least maybe he can hold off the hyenas long enough for the American people (i.e. those who really care about America) to awaken enough to rally and begin the long, painful task of restoring the country at least to something functional. I find that, despite America's many flaws (of which I've been very much aware for over 50 years), I do still have a certain sentimental attachment to it. The planet already has one Brazil; it doesn't need another.

Hillary is a stodgily predictable product ... Hillary is the stiff, sequestered admiral of a bullion-laden armada....

Another thing about Hillary which Camille doesn't mention – because, I assume, she just doesn't see it, or can't admit to herself that she does: Hillary is female. Of course I know I'm no feminist, but I look at her and think, "This???" Think of the two of them on the same stage – which one looks like even the remote possibility of a leader of a large and important nation? Hillary on stage by herself might be able to pull it off – with the assistance of the entire Machine keeping the American people enstupidated – but the direct contrast will be stark when it occurs.

(Picture Hillary at a "summit" conference with Vladimir Putin and/or whatever robot clone is at the helm in China – Putin at least I see having a hard time keeping himself from laughing.)

I suspect there's a very large number of Americans – including tens of millions of women – who have such thoughts, but don't know they have them, since they're simply not allowable in the current climate. So they hamsterize, and find other reasons to vote for Trump over Hillary – but whatever the reason, that's what they do.

It's an awakening, to the simple fact that men and women are not "equal" – and with all the myriad insanities caused by feminism breaking out like boils everywhere in the culture, one may perhaps hope that the awakening will eventually become conscious enough to change the culture's direction. Or at least – since practically the last thing women will do is admit they were wrong about something – some such change may come about by tacit agreement, without it ever being discussed explicitly anywhere but at nutcase websites.

Personally, I didn't think it would happen in my lifetime – if ever – but... maybe, just maybe.

I doubt Hillary will withdraw. She sees this as her moment, she believes entirely all the adulatory press about her and her formidableness, and everyone surrounding her is with her 100% the same. People on the left who are not die-hard Berners cannot see the obvious in front of them. I recently won a $1 bet with one that Trump would be the Republican nominee (from last fall). He not only offered to double down on winning the presidency, which I accepted, but actually opened the bet to all his leftist friends.

Blogger Elocutioner May 19, 2016 1:06 PM  

I think Hillary loses in an epic landslide, it completely crushes any tiny fragment that may remain of her black little soul, and she'll shrivel up and be dead within three years. After a historic global humiliation there will be nothing left for the old, bitter, alcoholic failure of a shrew in a sham marriage. Two years if she goes to trial. And her arabian princes might even ask for some of their money back.

Odd, they didn't seemed to be as worried when Obama was running for the White House and this description fits him to a tee. Being a street agitator is no bona-fides for being an actual elected politician. And even when he was elected as a politician, he did absolutely nothing but blow hot air and pose. Obama's lack of interest in anything serious regarding POTUS concerns/duties has been written about even by leftist rags. Truly astonishing that such a lazy, ignorant and ideological driven punk made it to the White House. Which in the end is more of a statement of how unelectable Hillary is since this shiny turd took her out of the primaries quite handily.

"It's an awakening,"

It's been an awakening all around. Feminists and women that call themselves feminists look at Hillary and say "Is this really the best we can do?". Conveniently forgetting that she wouldn't even be there without Bill. The next serious female candidate won't even have that.

The anti-Trump conservatives will also look at the candidates that fared so poorly and say "Is this really the best we can do?". I could be wrong, but it's unlikely Cruz would have fared so well without Trump making it ok to be anti-establishment. Beginning of the next primaries the stage will look like a bunch of wet noodles compared to what we remember from this election.

I'm excited to see what the Party that is created from the ashes week look like.

Every instinct of mine agrees with Vox that Trump is going to win. But as of now, the betting sites still show Hillary as having this election in the bag. Trump's odds have improved, but he is still a slightly more than 2:1 long shot.

The betting sites were about more than 95% accurate in 2012. So until I see Trump's odds pull close to Hillary, I am calling this election for the Democrat. There is still plenty of time for Trump to close the betting gap.

@34 And the great thing is that the only person with the power to pull Hillary's candidacy is Obama with the DOJ and her indictment. If the numbers keep slipping on the way to the convention, and Bernie keeps it up...

But if Obama puts the word out, an indictment goes through, and the superdelegates all shift to Bernie; then Hillary has to retaliate with whatever secret info she has.

The easy way out is for Hillary to have health concerns, back out and accept a pardon, but just like the raccoon in Where The Red Fern Grows, she simply will not let go of the shiny even though it tears nails through her hand.

The Mormon Church is like a custom built Delta Man machine. It takes all kinds of men... and turns them all into Deltas

Two factors, as I see it:

1) Jante Law. The base Mormon ethnicity is about a quarter Danish, along with over half English and the rest mostly other Northern European Protestant stock. Trump pisses all over Jante Law, which might explain why Mormons and Upper Midwesterners hate him.

2) Arranged marriages, combined with no alcohol. Even an Omega dweeb can get a cute wife if his family has the right connections. No game needed.

Many of the "crossover and independent" voters flocking to Trump are really the Republican's natural constituency who have been displaced by excommunication or lack of advocacy. Many of the one's now leaving are just the carpetbaggers that used their elite connections and money to squelch the natural base. Let these now homeless "elites" wander in the wilderness for 40 years and see if they have learned anything. If not, let them spend eternity there.

that's part of what's going on, the Democrat nominees have been coasting because the news media carries water for them and attempts to squelch stories that are harmful to them.

so you have increasingly bizarre and inept stooges rising to the top of the Democrat electoral process.

it's easy for the Republicans to post up some halfwitted shrub and not get completely blown out ... because if they DID start getting blown out, the party might start asking questions.

it's kind of like how the DC Metro is now full of blacks who intentionally promote the lazy and incompetent. it only takes a single conscientious and intelligent person simply doing their job properly to show up how shoddy and half assed everybody else is.

therefore, competent people MUST be driven from the field.

OT: Today's Google doodle is celebrating Yuri Kochiyama:

"Kochiyama was a friend and supporter of Assata Shakur, an African-American activist and member of the former Black Liberation Army (BLA), who has been convicted of several crimes including the first-degree murder of a New Jersey State Trooper before escaping from U.S. prison and receiving asylum in Cuba. She stated that to her Shakur was like "the female Malcolm [X] or the female Mumia [Abu-Jamal]." [12] Kochiyama also travelled to Peru to gather support for Abimael Guzman, leader of the Shining Path, which is classified by the Peruvian government, the U.S., the European Union, and Canada as a terrorist organization and has been widely condemned for its brutality, including violence deployed against peasants, trade union organizers, popularly elected officials and the general civilian population.[13][14][15] Kochiyama stated "[t]he more I read, the more I came to completely support the revolution in Peru."

Kochiyama supported Yu Kikumura, an alleged member of the Japanese Red Army, who was arrested in Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam in 1986 when he was found carrying a bomb in his luggage and subsequently convicted of planning to bomb a US Navy recruitment office in the Veteran's Administration building. Kochiyama felt Kikumura's 30-year sentence was motivated by his political activism.[16] As part of her support for those she saw as political prisoners, Kochiyama visited in prison Marilyn Buck, a feminist poet, who was imprisoned for her participation in the 1979 prison escape of Assata Shakur, the 1981 Brink's robbery and the 1983 U.S. Senate bombing.[17]...

In 2003, while being interviewed by Tamara Kil Ja Kim Nopper in The Objector, Kochiyama said "... I consider Osama bin Laden as one of the people that I admire. To me, he is in the category of Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba, Fidel Castro, all leaders that I admire ... [who] had severe dislike for the US government and those who held power in the US. I think all of them felt the US government and its spokesmen were all arrogant, racist, hypocritical, self-righteous, and power hungry..... You asked, 'Should freedom fighters support him?' Freedom fighters all over the world, and not just in the Muslim world, don’t just support him; they revere him; they join him in battle. He is no ordinary leader or an ordinary Muslim."[20][21]"

That's true, but only because it wasn't obvious in the '90s that free trade and immigration were eating way the U.S. economy and middle class.

But if they were running now, Trump would have still beaten Dubya or Slick Willie. And even in the '90s, I think Trump would have still done better than Pat Buchanan did.

Part of Trump's political genius was knowing when the timing was right for his American nationalism. He was interviewed about running for POTUS starting in the late 80's and he demured even while then chastising our leaders for letting us get rolled by the rest of the world. He briefly flirted with running in 1999-2000 in the Reform party but ultimately decided there was no path to victory. He flirted again in 2011 and once again decided the time wasn't right. Then he went all-in in 2015 and successfully overturned the global chessboard and is beginning remake it in his image.

Sure, but one can go to the other extreme, as the Mormons -- and Muslims -- have. In which case, male mediocrity is rewarded, or at least not penalized, and men are instead incentivized to conform rigidly to the ideals of the religion for material/sensual reasons rather than real spiritual ones. It leads to a cult-like situation that was historically absent in Christianity, with its all-male, often celibate, clergy.

Trump has run a few times before. He runs a big business successfully. He seems to love America over the NWO globalist agenda, and acts accordingly.

This is not politics as usual. This is war against America by the Uniparty elites (Clintons and Bushies are in that group).

I love my Retriever American. Still a dog, though. Wouldn't let her black self vote, no matter what. Lots of disgusting habits -- you wouldn't believe. Oy. But she's a good girl. Doggy, doggy, doggy!

"Craig, you need to stop posting and just listen."
Matthew, Craig means well, unlike myself.
Cut him some slack, dammit.

Craig, I dont see you screaming cultural misappropriation when they use that word to describe themselves.

IOW, I sincerely doubt your sincerity.

Besides, the "some of my best friends are negroes" thing is a bit of a tell.

Listen I went thru a small semi racist phase a while back but as I got older and hot to know them better I realized that I was wrong. There are some policies that may favor them a bit But it's nothing that hard working good person can't manage thru. I see racism as a weak excuse

This makes me so mad I got nothing else to say



why? it's the same old shit, "conservatives" preserving the 20 year old victories of the "liberals".

and, hey, at least THIS time the Progressive Repukelicans are striking out against their original enemies, the Confederacy.

Excessive trash talking on the internet is a bit of a tell

Hillary doesn't have health problems, she is a coke addict.
When she's 'on, she's energetic, euphoric, and psychotic. When she's 'off' she's a sunken, sallow caricature, depressed and melodramatic.
Anyone that has seen the symptoms can recognize them.

Someone with more than 20 IQ points than you, and drools a little less.

"Mormon Arranged Marriages"

what century are you living in? There's a tiny minority that we Utahns refer to as the 'polygamists' that live up in the hills in constant terror of getting busted.

They bear the same relation to Mormons that the Amish bear to Catholics.

[i]I don't see how Hillary wins, but I didn't see how Obama won a second term either.[/i]

[b][i]Two words. Mitt Romney.[/i][/b]

I hope you're right about Trump, but if I recall correctly, you predicted a Romney win back in 2012.
