MAGGA?

Here we go again:

Donald Trump has announced he’s running for the 2024 US presidency as he bids to return to the White House for a second time.

The 76-year-old has confirmed he will be throwing his hat in the ring to be the Republican nominee to contest president Joe Biden in two years time.

“In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” Trump said to an audience of several hundred supporters, club members and gathered press in a chandeliered ballroom at his Mar-a-Lago club.

He stood flanked by more than 30 American flags and banners that read, “Make America Great Again!”

“I am running because I believe the world has not yet seen the true glory of what this nation can be,” he continued. “We will again put America first.”

At this point, there’s only one thing left to do:

 

    

Wake me up, politically speaking, in December 2024.

Changing Tide

I have to admit that I’m starting to lean this way myself:

Donald Trump is being largely blamed for the midterm red wave that never happened, with Republican strategists pinning the party’s underwhelming performance in the 2022 midterms on his selection of ‘flawed’ candidates. 

Trump endorsed some 300 candidates, held 30 rallies and raised millions of dollars for his ‘army’ of candidates. It was supposed to be the amuse-bouche for a Presidential run, intended to set him up for a sweeping 2024 success.  

But overnight, many of Trump’s chosen candidates crashed and burned.

It seems to me that Trump is becoming like Her Filthiness Hillary Ciinton, the “broken glass” candidate (in that people would crawl over broken glass to vote against them).

Where there was previously no strong candidate to back in the fight against socialism, Trump was the default because all the Stupid Party could bring to the [ahem] party were candidates of the Romney/Mitch McConnell stripe — establishment GOPe drones.

Thanks to Trump, however, we have more radical leaders like Kristi Noem and of course Ron DeSantis around who, provided we could actually vote them into power, might continue or even improve upon the works of President Trump.

And let’s be honest:  another Trump similarity to Hillary is age:  in 2024 he will be 78, and if Biden is anything to go by, we do not need another octogenarian in the White House, no matter how energetic he may seem at the moment.  (A depressing thing about advanced age — ask me how I know this — is that two, three or four years has a far more radical effect upon one’s physical- and mental capabilities at 65+ years than they had at age 40 or even 50.)  Trump would be 79 if he were to win the next election, but 81 by the next mid-term election.  Could he still be as effective?  Hell, given the obstacles the Swamp would throw at him, could he be effective at all?

I have no problem with Trump continuing to hold rallies all over the place, as long as they support the MAGA philosophy and not his candidacy.  But that ain’t gonna happen.

And given that the supposed “red tsunami” turned out to be more of a pinkish trickle (a topic for another time), there’s no guarantee that even a conservative maestro like Ron DeSantis would be successfully elected.

Is it too early for a second gin?  I think not.

Perspective

From yesterday’s Comments:

“More than three million (and counting) “Texans” voted for Beto.”

Just remember that if all three million had voted in the same place, he wouldn’t even have carried Houston, let alone the whole state.

In fact, given that the Lone Star’s voting population numbers about 19 million, and at least ten percent of any given population are retarded assholes*, Beto’s vote count is not even double that number.


*Assuming that all retarded assholes would vote for Beto, that is, but there’s a limit even to asshole retardation.

News Roundup – Pre-Election Day Special

Brought to you by:

Today’s news to help you get through tomorrow:


...ain’t gonna work, assholes.  Antifa riots, BLM riots, Supreme Court intimidation, defunding cops, horrible foreign policy, an uncontrolled “open” border, worshipping the Green agenda (leading to high gas prices, diesel shortages and ending with uncontrollable inflation), FBI/DHS/IRS thuggery, child abuse in public schools, harassing parents, Marxist propaganda — these and oh so many more all bear YOUR fingerprints:  and we know it.


...well, he would, wouldn’t he?  [/Mandy Rice-Davies]


...because, “Light-Bringer”, we know the fucking truth.


...and in latest news from Mt. St. Helens...


...you mean “threat of widespread rioting by the Left when the elections go against them and they lose the House and Senate”.  No?  If not that, then there is no “heightened threat”.


...actually, that’s true of every issue, not just border security.


...don’t need any stupid poll to tell us that.


...yeeeeaaaarrrrgh, baby.  Dream on.


...and I know one family which has lost 70% of theirs since Biden was elected.

And in NON-POLITICAL INSIGNIFICA:

And in a special pre-election FAKE NEWS (ergo also no links) section:


...but if at first glance your heart skipped a beat out of joy, join the club.


...sounds a little desperate, doesn’t she?


...why else do you think he ran for office when he had absolutely no chance?


...just another day in Bidenville.


...no man should.

Right, that should give you all the advice and support you need for tomorrow.

Not So Sure

Then there’s this little development:

Former U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard ripped into national Democratic Party leaders, calling them “elitists” who no longer care about individual freedom.

Gabbard, a former Democratic candidate for president, later added that her former party bares no resemblance to the party as it was when John F. Kennedy was president.

I know she quit the Socialist Party and all that, and she’s rather cute-looking:

… but I still don’t trust her, because guns.


And by the way, it’s “BEARS no resemblance” — holds, not strips off

Ugly, All Round

Here’s the headline:

…and my first thought was: if a judge can’t be trusted with a gun on board a plane, then who can?

But then commonsense kicked in and my secondary thought was:  fuck ’em.  I’m sick of all these carve-outs and special treatments for people like this.  If I can’t carry a gun on a plane, then nobody should (excepting U.S. Marshals acting as “sky marshals”, perhaps).

But it gets worse.  From the story:

One of the latest gun owners to find herself in this embarrassing and potentially pricey situation is Bexar County Court Judge Rosie Speedlin Gonzalez, who recently realized the hard way that she had left one of her pistols in her carry-on bag as she was going through security at the San Antonio airport on her way to a conference in Miami.

At which point my antennae started to twitch a little.  Bexar (pronounced “bear”) county is San Antonio (city motto:  “Like Austin, but with less class”), so no doubt “Speedy” Gonzales is one of those Children of Soros judges… and then the next paragraph confirmed it:

Gonzalez says police allowed her wife to come pick up the gun.

Her wife?

Ah, fuck.  I apologize in advance, but here’s a pic of Speedy:

…complete with rainbow LGBTOSTFU flag, no less.

And another story about her, on that same topic:

A lesbian judge in Texas has been sanctioned for displaying a rainbow flag in her courtroom, after a lawyer complained that it was a “symbol of sexuality” and comparable to a swastika.

Bexar County Judge Rosie Speedlin Gonzalez is appealing a decision by the Texas Commission on Judicial Conduct, which told her in a private sanction that the rainbow flag — which flew alongside the U.S. flag and Texas state flag — was a breach of impartiality rules, Texas Lawyer reports.

Gonzalez made history in 2018 by becoming the first openly gay judge to be elected in Bexar County, and argued that the flag represented equality in her courtroom.

Listen, you rug-munching cow:  by definition, every courtroom in the United States represents equality before the law, and you shouldn’t have to wave your silly little flag to “prove” it.

I need to stop now before that 300+ blood pressure thing kicks in.

Range time?  I think so.
