In the revolt against The GOP Establishment, it’s important to differentiate several distinct clusters of entities that might occasionally be called “establishment”, and to narrow down who rightly deserves the moniker.

First and foremost are the axis of the Donor Class and their agents in the government. This includes the Chamber of Commerce, any company that might benefit from the Ex-Im bank, Wall Street firms, the Big Agriculture/Ethanol axis, etc. The subservient politicians of those entities are more than willing to pretend to support free markets, stricter immigration, and generally smaller government… for about the first thirty seconds after they are elected and have to vote on something that contradicts one of their benefactors’ interests. In case there is any question, all national GOP bodies (and probably most of the state bodies) fall into this category.

Secondly, there are the “Business of Conservatism” crowd. These people sell conservatism and conservative-flavored-outrage products to individual voters in exchange for donations to keep fighting for the cause. Much like charities, there is a spectrum of honest effort toward effecting change versus callous and parasitic exploitation of their donors. I leave it as an exercise to the reader precisely which groups belong in this category and where they belong on the spectrum.

Lastly, there are the intellectuals, writers, and pundits. This includes National Review, The Weekly Standard, the American Spectator, individuals such as George Will and Thomas Sowell, and I would probably include such organizations such as AEI and the Hoover Institution.

Some organizations such as Heritage probably straddle these last two categories since they do put out quite serious public policy analysis but also engage in the Business of Conservatism. Certain talk radio hosts also straddle these last two categories since they too sometimes engage in both serious policy discussions but also outrage peddling. Again, the exact identities of these radio hosts and their position on the spectrum is left as an exercise to the reader.

I consider the intellectual-pundit category not to be engaged so much in the “Business of Conservatism” in that business is generally not so good. These folks rely on what Dennis Prager has termed “moral bank accounts” for their paychecks. When they make a “withdrawal”, they risk making a bad business decision. And yet, occasional withdrawals are a necessary part of the job.

When I say “Establishment”, I mean primarily the Donor Class and their agents in the government and party infrastructure.

So when National Review and other noted and respected writers take a principled stance against Trump while simultaneously agents of the donor class are warming to Trump, I don’t think it’s entirely accurate to suggest that “The Establishment” is trying to take out Trump. NR is much less “The Establishment” than are Bob Dole and Trent Lott.

To the extent that The Establishment has let conservatism down, it is much less NR than it is the Donor Class. NR, whatever missteps they might have made over the years, doesn’t get rich by selling out conservatism. The Donor Class does.

Historic Snow Hits The East Coast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, ‘Historic” in the Obama-sense of the word.

That, of course was not as bad as the two blizzard week we had another year. I actually had to pay a pizza delivery guy $40 to drive me 4 miles during one of those blizzards. My friends came up for a Giants/Foreskins game and they stayed in Crystal City while I lived in Alexandria.

I hate the Weather Channel.

 

Har.

I’ve been pretty busy with work and vacation and, well, being lazy, so I haven’t tubed much lately. I try to watch the news but really, I could care less what idiocy Yale fools do and watching whatever the hell is happening in Missouri seems like too much effort to try to understand, just nitwit leftists going all Stalin, so I have no idea what the hell is happening but it appears to be pretty darn endy and only peripherally funny.

But today I tubed and realized, it’s freaking hilarious.

This misleading headline makes me laugh.

Headline

Little Support for Punishing Global Warming Foes

From the body of the article.

Democrats (27%), however, favor prosecuting those who don’t agree with global warming.

Do you realize that more than a quarter of Dems want to punish people who are in favor of the scientific method?

It’s like the Scopes Monkey Trial all over again, except now we have the anti-science people screeching about being all scientifical and shit. I’d be many of that 27% are in government or Penn State. Which makes it funnier IMIO.

 

I have an idea, let’s let our European betters tell us how to govern!!!!!

It has long been believed that when it comes to interest rates, zero is as low as you can go….

But for the people who control the world’s money, this idea has recently been thrown out of the window. Many central banks have pushed their rates into negative territory and yet the financial system has still (not? V) to come to an abrupt end.

 

So does that mean I’ll have to pay interest on my savings account?

Makes me wonder if this is what that moh-ron Yellen is talking about.

“Policymakers have to carefully weigh the advantages and disadvantages of alternative monetary implementation frameworks in the presence of new policy tools,” Yellen said

Sure that’s gobbledeygook, but I think she thinks it means something. Which would be pretty darn funny in a Monty Python movie but pretty darn scary in the real world.

Methinks it’s time to  forget about buying more silver and gold and focus on wood, polymer, steel, brass, lead, complex, fast-burning chemicals and toilet paper. They’re going to be the new exchange medium after the collapse.

 

For the record, contrary to what is being written, neither I nor my mild-mannered, alter-ego are gay.

…upcoming Scholastic Book Fair includes a gay character… “Captain Underpants and the Sensational Saga of Sir Stinks-A-Lot”

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

 

I do have to admit, it’s been funny watching people realize that maybe, just maybe, Polie-ico are a bunch of lying Minitrue members in good-standing.

As was evident to anybody who ever paid any attention to them at all long ago, starting with their first Big Story!!!!!, a lying hitjob on Fred Thompson that was proven a lie as soon as video of the incident came out and continuing on with every “Scoop!!!!” they’ve ever had.

 

Two last things,

This is funny.

Donald Trump said Wednesday he was shocked to see Hillary Clinton’s latest hairdo, calling it “massive” in an interview on conservative talk radio.

You have to admit, Trump making fun of someone else’s hair is downright hilarious.

I will say that in Drudge’s pic, it does look like a wig.

 

This ain’t funny.

Cuz it’s true.

 

Okay, I lied. Two more things below the fold.

(more…)

Oh, that’s motherfucking liberal fucking media.

I saw the hate-fulled, attack-mode, leftist douche-tools admit that Carson was talking about when he was 14 and younger and all the fuckheads they managed to find were in his high school so they wouldn’t have know about him in junior high and younger but that didn’t stop them from “asking questions” about Carson’s discussion of his life.

Questions about the last 20 years of Obama’s life were out of bounds but ‘interviews’ with fucking lying, hate-filed assholes about Carson’s life from 50 years ago are fair fucking game.

I hate those fuckheads, and the only person I’ve ever hated before was Yassir Fucking Arafat.

He created a death-cult of a statelet where children are brought up to want to die killing other children, the fucking assholes in our media are happily destroying the rule of law and the American experiment in self-governance, happily aided and abetted by our fine establishment betters in both parties who are trying to shove another Clinton V. Bush election which will turn off most of America.

Motherfuckers.

 

An aside, am I the only one boycotting TVLand for dropping the Dukes of Hazzard while still keeping that racist asshole, Steve Harvey, hosting Family Fued?

 

Disintrospection

Posted: September 20, 2015 by veeshir in Fun With Media, Funniest End of Civilization Evah

I’ve been avoiding news lately, work has been kicking my ass, so all day yesterday whenever I flipped by CNN, they had something along the bottom about how Trump said he doesn’t have to defend Obama, I was wondering why he was supposed to defend Obama.

I found out why,  someone called Obama a Muslim and apparently it’s Trump’s job to defend Obama, at least according to Minitrue, but Trump doesn’t feel that’s the case.

How do you talk to idiots like that?

Why the hell is it anybody but Minitrue’s or John Boehner’s job to defend Obama?

Especially as Obama is not Christian either, he’s a radical socialist and that’s the closest thing to religion he believes in.

I still see people on TV talking about whether the Iran deal is good or bad, is that still a question? I thought we had figured that out at least a few weeks ago.

There will be mushroom clouds rising over Riyadh and Minitrue will be demanding that W Bush defend Obama’s deal.

Alternate Title: When I stopped paying attention to any newsreaders and learned to love SMOD.

It’s about how ridiculous Shep Smith was during the Katrina deal (caused by Dems from local to state but blamed on Bush)

Dressed now in the faded, bloodcaked fatigues he took off a National Guardsman he’d found beaten to death in the Treme St corridor, FOXNews’ Shepard Smith stands motionless before the listing skeletal remains of what was once a Best Western on Rampart St, his head shaved clean, jaw stiff, chin ticked slightly upward and pointing toward the on-camera spot his crew is using to augment the firelight from fifteen or so torches held by a gang of lumbering, topless refugees the sunburned anchor rounded up earlier from the wreckage of the Iberville projects.
…, hold the wide-eyed heads of a CNN camera crew and a couple of photogs from the Associated Press—“errand boys,” Smith tells the camera’s blinking red eye, “sent by grocery clerks to collect my Pulitzer….
…the grisly severed heads that frame the serene-looking Smith like a cadre of mildly confused gargoyles. –

RTWT, it’s a pitch-perfect post about how ridiculous our fine, Minitrue betters are.

Shep was heading toward journalist status after 9/11 but then he started hanging around with Geraldo and instead went full clueless, biased, idiot.

 

Plan B

Posted: August 23, 2015 by veeshir in Fun With Media, Funniest End of Civilization Evah, Obama's Fault

Important Update Below!!!!!!!

Plan B(atleth) I mean.

So even lefties are starting to notice reality and they might even accept that they cannot just browbeat the rest of America to do what they’ve decided is right (this week).

Democrats are worried — so worried five donors who raised millions for President Obama as well as Obama’s chief Florida strategist have both sworn off Hillary and joined an effort to draft Vice President Joe Biden

 

Joe Fucking Biden as the Great Blight Hope? I’m telling you, the Dem primary is going to get un-Hillaryous as it become downright hilarious, even funnier and less believable than 2008.

J Effin Kerry is sure to throw is chapeau in the ring, Elizabeth warren her headdress.

Those two jumping in, with Biden and Sanders already in, is going to make it an utterly ridiculously endy and funny “No! I’m more stupider!!!!” primary.

Bernie Sanders is a non-starter, it’s hard for Minitrue to hide that a guy who calls himself a socialist is, in actuality, a socialist. They can’t say ‘socialist’ is racist when it’s pointed at a white guy.

I’m not sure if Minitrue can hide every idiocy Elizabeth Warren says as they do with Biden, so her statements about how we need to emulate China or Cuba are going to actually be heard. She’s too stupid to understand you only say that stuff to the right (left) audience, they are not for the wider public.

But what that really means is that I wuz wrong, this is not likely

hillary_clinton_michelle_obama_2016

 

I thought it might go either way, with Hillary! on top or maybe with M’Shell on top (now that’s an ugly image), but now I’m thinking it’s going to be M’Shell with Joe Biden as VP for 8 more years.

We deserve no less because of how we’ve elected the most venal, uncaring, stupid yet utterly self-superior crew of incompetents and felons as could be found outside a Monty Python, Mel Brooks or Fritz Lang movie.

 

I’ve been thinking Minitrue might actually eventually get sorta hones, but that ain’t the deal. Yesterday they explained how, even though Obama has golfed instead of doing his job, it’s okay. He golfed with John Boehner (R-Better and Smarter Than You), and he’s really just getting ready for his retirement so only haters and racists have a problem with that.

Heinlein got one thing wrong. In “If This Goes On…..” (retitled Revolt in 2100 or something), he had the revolutionaries doing a publication that praised the God-like man elected POTUS in 2012 for things that bother people was used to get people in the heartland riled up, but CNN is unintentionally doing the exact same thing and apparently, the folks who watch Minitrue are perfectly okay with the God-President wiping his ass on the Constitution and the Presidency.

And that’s why we need M’Shell.

We’ve tried statement elections where we boned the GOP, we’ve tried elections where we put them in charge, we’ve tried letting it burn and nothing will get the GOP to underfuckingstand what they hell we want them to do.

So now, I think we need to make it so bad that the asteroid will be so obviously the viable alternative is actually is that even the low-information-voters understand you cannot vote for free stuff forever. Sooner or later someone has to pay for it.

 

Important Update!!!!!!

When Rand Paul was trying to get Obama to let us know what he was thinking vis a vis killing me with his Cox Skybombers, we were wondering what gun for drone.

Shotgun it is! He doesn’t mention gauge.
