As everyone here knows, I don’t care for Dump, Baked Alaska or Steve Bannon, but the larger issue here is Democrats convening show trials, selective enforcement of the law and wielding arbitrary power to silence and crush their political opposition while whining about “authoritarianism.”

I support the sentiment. I doubt it could be competently executed though. Axios: “Former President Trump’s top allies are preparing to radically reshape the federal government if he is re-elected, purging potentially thousands of civil servants and filling career posts with loyalists to him and his “America First” ideology, people involved in the discussions tell Axios.

Orthodox Slumlord was just denying this in the comments. Daily Mail: “Half of Americans expect to see a second U.S. civil war within years and nearly a fifth say they could one day be toting guns at a political face-off themselves, according to an alarming new study about the nation’s deepening divisions.

This is a rough summary of how I see the issue. I’ve been called a wignat feminist by incels because I don’t rage against women on this website. I like women. I don’t have a problem with women. I believe men and women are naturally compatible and complementary. Society works when it is built around […]

Tucker’s show is arguably the most mainstream media product coming out of the conservative media Potemkin village and it barely distinguishable from white nationalist blogs. If that’s not an alarm bell, I don’t know what is. https://t.co/KJEWJp1JcZ — Jared Holt (@jaredlholt) July 20, 2022 I’m pleased with this. If you had told me in 2019 […]

“If you compare that to every single other president at this point in their first term throughout polling history, this goes all the way back since the 1940s, he is the worst on both,” CNN’s Harry Enten says. “Inflation is eating his presidency alive.” pic.twitter.com/bBobX3ZPA5 — Virginia Kruta (@VAKruta) July 14, 2022 I don’t think […]

As the Democratic Party crumbles and completes its evolution into the old Rockefeller Republican Party, we are seeing a big uptick in stories like this. New York Times:

Two years ago, I began to draw attention to this divide within the Democratic Party between DILE (Democrat Independent Liberal Elite) voters and DLWC (Democratic Leaning Working Class) voters. This was during the transition and the earliest days of the Joe Biden presidency. It began to dawn on me that the Democratic Party was two […]

Ruy Teixeira has expanded on his radicalization by the “far right” in the WSJ. WSJ: “An old line is that revolutions devour their children, but apparently they’re equally unkind to their elders. Ruy Teixeira spent many years at the Center for American Progress (CAP), a progressive Washington think tank that provides much of the agenda […]

Joe is losing Asian and “Latinx” voters. He still has the support of blacks, but the bloc vote has crumbled there too. This won’t translate as much into a shift in voting patterns, but it is still catastrophic for Democrats. Pew Research Center:

Editor’s Note: SPOILER WARNING. I was unfamiliar with The Handmaid’s Tale until the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. Americans tend to live in separate realities these days. We don’t watch the same television shows as radical progressives. I first became aware of the show and the novel it was based on when Lacy MacAuley, a prominent […]

“The Union must be dissolved under its present course of administration. It requires no conspiracy to destroy – no exertion on our part to drag it to its dissolution. It goes down with the inevitable weight of its own gravitation, into that dark abyss of anarchy and ruin, where all tyrannies have fallen.” “The long, […]

Ruy Teixeira, the political scientist who wrote The Emerging Democratic Majority in 2002, which was eventually deteriorated into the conventional wisdom among White liberals that “demographics is destiny,” chimes in on the unanticipated rise of the East Cosst AWFLs. Ruy Teixeira:

Imagine my shock. The Democratic Party is evolving into the party of affluent, college educated PMCs, especially White women who LARP like they are in the Handmaid’s Tale, who live in coastal metros. Axios: “Democrats now have a bigger advantage among white college graduates than they do with nonwhite voters, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll. […]
