Weekend Trump Stack

3 06 2016

Your Blogmeister’s Desk

Plus other campaign news.  And open thread.  Just to get you ready for your weekend.

If you read to the bottom of this post, you’ll find the fountain of youth.

* What a surprise:  An editor for the WSJ hates populism and nationalism.

* Barnacle class upset that Trump doesn’t hire enough barnacles.

* Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are suddenly getting jealous of their own power.  Where have they been the last seven years and change?

* Damn, I wish I could have gotten the bosses to send me to Philadelphia next month on some pretext.

Both parties’ conventions have the potential to look and smell a lot like DNC ’68.

* Trump continues to dig deep into the organized labor rank and file.  What he’s also doing is unstated here — He’s dropping a wedge within the labor union universe, between white people who work in manufacturing, heavy industry and the trades, and largely non-whites who are in government or service fields.  Also pay close attention to the language that union leaders use against Trump — It reads no differently than the anti-Trump invective that one would read in the WSJ (see above).  And that’s not a coincidence:  So many union leaders now have life histories and career tracks that are virtually the same as those of corporate executives.  The schools they went to, the country clubs they belong to, the neighborhoods they live in, the salaries they’re paid.  Which means that as an institution, organized labor is just another big corporation these days.

* Someone else finally figures out what I did awhile back, that Trump and Reagan share a lot similarities in their life histories, including for the fact that General Electric Theater was to Reagan what The Apprentice was to Trump, basically media training for future political campaigns.

* Pay close attention, and you’ll find out what I’ve always told you, that the youth vote in Presidential primary and caucus seasons (and most other election scenarios) doesn’t much matter.

* I wanted to deep dive this, but couldn’t get myself in the mood; besides, I’ve already done it so many times before piecemeal in this space, that I figure by now, you all can pick up the ball and run with it yourselves.

I did LOL at the first part of the first sentence at the beginning of Part 2:  “Millennials, being both more numerous and less cynical than their Generation X predecessors…”

Less cynical?  Too bad for them, that’s their loss.

* More evidence that when it comes to Bern victims, Trump will neutralize them far more than he’ll get their votes, but of the Bern victims that vote in November, more will vote Trump than Hillary.  However, a Bern victim that stays home is also one that probably voted Obama in 2012, and this means that his or her staying home will in essence be casting a half a vote for Trump.  It’s the same thing I say about Trump and the black vote — He won’t get it as much as he neutralizes it.

* Howard Dean be like:  Too much Baby Boomer for too long.

What Dean sees as bug, most high level Democrats see as feature, for obvious reasons, because they themselves are Boomers.  That’s part of the reason why they want mass non-white immigration to elect a new people, because the new voters won’t be in a mood to displace white (or “white”) Boomer (and older) Democrats, thereby allowing them to hang on to power longer than they otherwise would.  Viz:  California.  But, don’t expect Howard Dean to figure that out, and certainly don’t expect him to become an immigration restrictionist for it.

To the extent that there’s any effort afoot to use the growing non-white Democrat voting universe to displace older/whiter Democrats, it’s younger (“gay”) whites who are organizing it.

* Fountain of youth.

Basically the obama coalition is falling apart, but I sincerely hope that Trump doesn’t just win by the skin of his teeth, and that he does win huge among Americans.

Okay, you tempted me, so I’ll do it really quickly.

STEP 1: The ZOMG HISPANIC VOTER TIDAL WAVE LOL~!!!!!1 is a paper tiger and exercises almost no electoral college leverage. Ignore it.

STEP 2: Under-30 voters exercise almost no real political leverage.

STEP 3: There are only a very small handful of cranks in the Republican establishment slash Beltway Right slash neocon universe who won’t get behind Trump by election day. Also an irrelevant impotent group of people.

STEP 4: HRC has already fumbled on trade.

Recently Obama wailed about “divisive” as a bad thing. Bill Clinton attacked Donald Trump for being “divisive” which hurts our wonderful “diversity.”

Well, “diversity” CAUSES “divisiveness.” Every time.

Be that as it may, and I think you’re right, that Millennial cynicism is underappreciated, we still wear the crown.

Only because you’re Whiter. The chans are mostly White boys and halfbreed Orientals. If anything, they’re more cynical than GenX as a whole.

ATTN: was contacted by Curtis Yarvin, to whom TRS gave credit for coding the “Coincidence Detector.” Yarvin, who confirmed his identity over email, denied his involvement in “Coincidence Detector.”

Yarvin is Jewish for one. Second, he doesn’t have the best of relations with the TRS/DS/SF types. So I doubt highly he would have done that.

Plugs should’ve checked his facts. Moldbug had already denied it prior to his tweet. Even though he’s a mischling, the rumor was sort of plausible. The plug-in wasn’t designed to track Jews. They claimed it was part of the Urbit o/s. Didn’t those knuckleheads think somebody would check? Or were they just trolling Moldbug?

I don’t care what Vox Day and Pax Dickinson think. This is not the image the Alt Right needs to project.

On the bright side, at least his water bottle is next to, not inside, him.
I’m not sure how he acquired the Warrior label, or as they were saying in the vox thread, “he’s got skins and heads mounted on his wall”. It doesn’t take a genius or great fortitude to dismantle femcunt logic, and straight White guys have been doing that for decades. But when a fag shoots to his Left, they short-circuit because he’s supposed to be on their side, not ours. So what, he’s a Giant Killer because he provokes trigglypuffs into going Full Femtard? Thanks for the lulz and meme remixes. All the worship Ann Coulter got last year for her Wetback book — God love her, but Pat Buchanan wrote it all 10 years earlier, and everyone ignored him. But when a chick says it — because chicks are supposed to be mush-headed lefties — then the argument is suddenly “valid”?
American can’t become great again until people heed The Straight White Man again. Trump is but one. Nor will Europe be saved by any “far right” party headed by a chick.
