GA-6: No Carpetbaggers!

Jon OssoffAt the end of the day, Republican Karen Handel beat Democrat Jon Ossoff in the GA-6 special election runoff to replace Republican Tom Price, who resigned from the seat due to his appointment and confirmation as the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services in the Trump Administration. This has caused much weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth by liberals and Progressives nationwide.

Simply put, this is because Liberals and Progressives, the Lamestream Enemedia, and the movers and shakers of the Democratic Party are delusion idiots deep in thrall of apocalyptic fantasies. Ossoff was nigh on if not exactly the absolutely wrong candidate to try to take any district in Georgia, much less the traditionally Republican 6th. He was fundamentally just a carpetbagger and carpetbaggers have never been very popular in the South.

  1. Ossoff doesn’t live in 6th District and hasn’t done so since he was a child and, even then he attended an elite, private school in Atlanta.
  2. Ossoff, at only 30 years old, is younger than most Southerners prefer their politicians to be.
  3. Ossoff is unmarried and has no children, which is seen as having no roots or ties to the community by many Southerners.
  4. Ossoff isn’t a church-going man or, in his case, a synagogue-going man, which further signals him out as having neither roots in- nor ties to the community.

So Mr. Ossoff was already facing an uphill battle from the very start. The approximately $20 million that Ossoff received as campaign contributions from outside of Georgia, mostly from California, New York, and Massachusetts, rather than helping him up that hill, hurt him by painting him as even more of a carpetbagger whose interests, ties, and loyalties weren’t to the 6th District. Then, when you add in all left-wing pundits and the media painting this election as a “referendum on Trump,” you’re actually crystallizing the thought that Ossoff isn’t for the people of 6th District even further.

Perhaps the biggest telling point is the fact that Ossoff got 48.1% of the vote, exactly the same as in April when he failed to reach the 50% threshold to avoid a runoff but did garner more votes than all the Republicans on the original ballot combined (40.2%). Yet, after the vast and ungainly goliath of liberalism got involved, Handel went from getting 19.8% of the vote in April to getting 51.9% and the victory.

My Thoughts On Hodgkinson

James HodgkinsonFor what they’re worth, here are my thoughts on the June 14, 2017 mass assassination attempt of Republican Congressmen in Alexandria, VA:

In all ways, shapes, and forms this was utterly predictable as was the aftereffects and rhetoric that followed. It is and was so predictable in fact that it seems almost pointless to comment upon. Hence, the delay in my doing so.

Not Just Bound To Happen, Planned To Happen

That Hodgkinson, a far-left neo-Socialist who was a fanatical follower of Bernie Sanders, went “over the edge” and tried to murder a large number of Republican politicians was totally predictable in the larger context.

Bernie’s campaign rhetoric and much of what has come out of his mouth since was centered on enraging the Left and focusing their anger on Republicans. Much of it is and was far closer to “war talk” than anything Sara Palin ever said. He may publicly claim he found Hodgkinson’s act of terrorism despicable, but his own rhetorical modis operendi has always been one that leads to this sort of political violence. It was utterly predictable that one of the failures that were devoted to him would do such a thing at some point or another.

Similarly, the apocalyptic rhetoric coming out of the mouths of Democrat politicians and dutifully repeated, amplified, and extrapolated upon by the Lamestream Enemedia was explicitly planned and designed to incite rage among the Liberals and Progressives. It is no shock whatsoever that one of their “more vulnerable” members – i.e., one of their worse failures in life – would decide that killing off as many of the GOP as possible was the right and only recourse available.

And, while “planned” may be, and probably is, too strong of a term when applied to the Democrat politicians, I don’t feel it is so when applied to the “news media.” They got a lot a lot of rating boosts and, resultantly, a big boost in the auction value for ad spots from Hodgkinson as they knew they would. So, while it would be ridiculous to claim that they planned for Hodgkinson, it’s not in any way foolish, reactionary, or hyperbolic to say that their coverage of politics since President Trump’s election has been specifically designed to cause greater reaction and violence among the Left because that’s good business for them.

Same Old, Same Old Responses

Frankly, the various reactions and responses to Hodgkinson’s mass assassination attempt were even more predictable – and, hence, boring in a maddening extreme at this point – then his attack itself. Fucking Harlequin Romances from the ’70s and -80s were less formulaic and scripted.

  • The Schadenfreude from the gun-grabbers – utterly predictable
  • The claim, albeit short lived, that Hodgkinson used an AR-15 – utterly predictable
  • The expressions of support for- endorsement of Hodgkinson’s action by devotees of Obamacare – utterly predictable
  • The calls for compassion towards- and understanding Hodgkinson – utterly predictable
  • Bernie trying to disavow and distance himself from Hodgkinson – utterly predictable
  • The fact that after 24 hours the sole focus of the media was reporting upon people’s opinions of- and positions upon gun control – utterly predictable
  • The blaming of the GOP and more specifically President Trump for the attack – utterly predictable
  • The “praying for” the victims and their families and the calls for unity – utterly predictable

It’s not even an original script. It just another rendition of the one used for each and every Muslim terrorist attack inside America’s border and damn close to – have to leave out some of the gun-grabbers’ schtick – that used for any Muslim terror attack worldwide.

~*~

Those, my gentle readers, are my thoughts on Hodgkinson and his attack. Predictable, pointless, and utterly without consequence except for the principals involved and their families.

After The Bomb

After The Bomb A Return To The New Normal
After The Bomb

Neil Gorsuch has been confirmed as the newest Associate Justice of US Supreme Court. On April 3, 2017, the Senate Judiciary committee approved his nomination with a party-line 11-9 vote.[86] On April 6, 2017, Democrats filibustered the confirmation vote of Gorsuch, after which the Republicans invoked the “nuclear option”, thereby allowing the filibuster to be broken by a simple majority vote, which they easily obtained. If you have any tree emergency contact First Call Tree Services for help.

That’s all well and good, and it is good, very good. But now what? What is life and the Senate going to be like after the bomb? How long will this slap fight last and to went lengths will the children go?
