I can’t help but believe that Fox News is now a media arm of the Democrat Party

If you listened to Fox and Friends this morning, it was all Trump, all the time.

There is no chance on Earth this buffoon is going to beat Hillary Clinton in the General Election.  I’m a dumbass and I know that!

I know this is real InfoWars fair, but it’s almost as if the executives at Fox News decided that they have a vested interest in conservatives losing the Presidential Election.

“If they win, they’ll stop being angry and stupid.  We’ll have nothing to feed for ratings, so push the weak horse at all costs!”

I know that seems like real crackpot, tinfoil hat, chemtrails crap.

…but I can’t remember a day where Donald Trump wasn’t on at 7 AM, except for April 19.  Eric Trump was on at 7 AM that day.

Fold the Reynolds Wrap to a size 10.

So… I just watched The Force Awakens

I have one question:  What moron at Disney green lighted the script?

I cannot believe 35 years of Expanded Universe (well-made Expanded Universe, no less) was thrown out for this sack of crap!

In fact, I don’t even know where to start enumerating all my problems with this movie.

I’ll begin by saying I’ll never forgive Disney for fucking up Star Wars like this.  Never!

The entire concept is a blatant JJ Abrams rewrite of A New Hope.  It’s obvious.  Painfully obvious!

And it’s absolutely vulgar!

The closest thing the movie had to a redeeming quality was Han Solo.  And he was killed off.

Good for you Mr. Ford!  You’re off this latest ship JJ had to torpedo.  I hope Carrie Fisher passes from this mockery just as gracefully.

If Ted Cruz really wants to save Conservatism, he needs to drop out now!

Difficult post as I am a Ted Cruz supporter.

Bold prediction:  2016 is a loss.

…at least for POTUS. …no matter who wins the Nomination. 

Conservatives now have to think about the carnage that is being done down-ballot.

No matter who wins this Nomination fight (it will be Trump) that person is doomed to be buried in all of the dirt this cage match has dug up.

Forget for a minute that Democrats would have been mobilized en-masse against the GOP nominee.

The fact that Cruz has been (wrongly) branded with the scarlet letter of philandering, he now has the same “Woman Problem” in the popular conscience that Trump had.

The Democrats real challenge now is just figuring out which attack ads they should start with.

There is one solution and only one:

Triage.

Cut our losses now!

Cruz drops out (hopefully Kasich too) and gives Trump an uncontested path to the Nomination.

Then we do nothing…

Let Trump lose the General Election on his own and lose it alone. 

I hate to say it.  Let him win the Nomination then disown and disavow him writing off 2016 as the nuclear disaster that it is.  Pretend we don’t know him and for Pete’s Sake…stop talking about him!

No down ballot GOP candidates should campaign for him or with him. 

No Party players should give speeches on his behalf. 

All down ballot candidates should publicly and loudly request that he not mention them, speak for them or claim that he has even met them!

———

As I write this, I am barely beginning to grasp at the depth of the effect Trump’s candidacy and this nomination fight has had (and will have) on the conservative movement. 

The damage is mortal. 

2016 was a favorable Senate map for Democrats to begin with!  Hillary, disliked or not, is a formidable campaigner.

We will have lost the Presidency, The Senate, The Supreme Court via Scalia’s replacement.  Republicans may even lose the House — there is real danger of this.

There will be no power in Republican hands on the Federal level of Government.  Think on that!

Now think on that after Dodd-Frank, after Affordable Care, after EPA, HUD, DOE, and other Alphabet Soup initiatives. 

Think on that with the current virulent Left-Wing gun-grabbing fetish!

We will not have just lost the battle.  Democrats are soon to be free to start shooting the battle’s survivors.

No snarky closing quips here!  You should be good and sober after considering all this…

Seven Years of Whining. Seven…F**CKING…years!!!

For 7 years, I have listened to other Republicans bark about taking back the Country.  It reached a fever pitch in 2014. 

You all screamed and cried in 2015 as follows:

“None of these losers we sent to Congress has balls to stand up for our agenda!”

“None of them are doing what we want!”

“We voted in these horse trading squishes who just rollover!!!”

“We sent a message in 2014 and they still give Obama everything He wants….Democrats still get everything they want!”

“We did what the GOP wanted and gave them both Houses of Congress!  It wasn’t good enough they’re still dealing the Country out the window!”

Now… There’s one man in this Republican Presidential race that stood in the breach and didn’t back down from trying to advance the conservative agenda  –> Ted Cruz

To which all you same people say:

“We can’t nominate him!  He doesn’t make deals!!!”

“How can we elect Ted Cruz when he doesn’t bend?!  What will he get done?!”

???

I thought halting and rewinding the damage Democrats did was important!

I thought slowing the Leviathan down mattered!

No…  You really DON’T know what you want!

I’m done asking people to make up their minds

A new question that might be more valid:

Are people even sane anymore?!

The GOP “Establishment” is much more #NeverCruz than #NeverTrump right now.

Last weekend there was a bit of Social Media Outrage that Ted Cruz was campaigning in Florida.

The line goes like this:

“Why would Ted Cruz be campaigning in Florida, a State he can’t possibly win, unless he just wants to screw Rubio and ensure Trump wins!  Ted Cruz lies!  Ted Cruz does dirty tricks!  Ted Cruz is an asshole!  Ted Cruz is the Antichrist!

Whine!  Whimper!  WAAAAAH!”

That’s a series of assumptions strung together with some questionable segues wrapped up into a huge aspersion —>

In other words: Rubio is the only candidate capable of beating Trump in Florida (assumption) and Cruz would only campaign there to syphon votes off of Rubio who would win Florida (more assumptions) and suddenly catch fire and dominate Trump thus saving the GOP from the clutches of that Donald Trump who will name Cruz his running mate. (aspersion)

Oooooo kaaaaayyyy!!!

Making way to my point…

This delusion ignores the facts and history that Ted Cruz actually has delegates. 

He won somewhere other than Puerto Rico.

If the established GOP really can’t suffer nominating Trump, why leave this a question by not encouraging everyone to coalesce around the GOP candidate that has enough delegates to make it a race??? 

The Truth (as it seems to me) is that the GOP wants neither Trump or Cruz.  But the GOP can punt on losing 2016, with the plausible disclaimer that they didn’t run a “real” conservative if Trump wins, so Trump would be preferable.

Cruz campaigning in Florida is much less of a riddle (and less malevolent) once you realize that GOPe actually wants to nominate him even less than they want to nominate Trump.

Both are losers against Hillary.

I guess I’m just weird for wanting to lose with an actual conservative candidate capable of exposing her for what she actually is.

But what do I know? Anyone reading this far has me written off as some Cruz Crew shill.

The Cruz Conspiracy

As I have stated to many people and in many forums before now, I like Marco Rubio. 

I’ll vote for him …with reservations!

But for Pete’s sake!  Cool it with the conspiracy theories

According to Rubio’s supporters, all Ted Cruz has to do is tweet a rumor (that started somewhere else) that a candidate might be dropping out and Cruz gets all that candidates’ votes.

i know it seems like I’m picking a fight.  I swear. I’m not.  But that is a ridiculous inference.

Is it entirely impossible that the “Ted Cruz Lies!” narrative has stuck and Rubio’s people are now taking some advantage of it?  ...or does that come off as just as ridiculous as the item I posited just before this?

Stop worshiping these people and you’ll understand!

Rubio is not Jesus!

Cruz is not Lucifer!

Trump is not Cthulu! 

(…not sure about the Cthulu thing with Clinton or Sanders, though)

There is no Jesus among them.

Marco Rubio and his flavor of Bush-ism has little appeal to people that do not want to be replaced at their jobs by cheaper imported workers.  (But those head to head polls…!!!)

I know it’s a GOPe SOP to downplay his involvement with The Gang of Eight. 

It can’t be downplayed. 

His job as a member was to sell Republicans on handing the Democrats their crown jewel…  It can’t be forgiven.

Everyone knows it!

Rubio supporters want everyone else to ignore it!

It’s the reason Cruz got traction against him early and exactly why it’s plausible that #DirtyTricks is actually just #RubioProjection.

I can play the part of paranoid crackpot too. 

If this post grated on you like sandpaper, well then now you know how Cruz supporters feel.

Trump is the front-runner. We have to live with it. …and die with it

He had been pasted debate after debate.

He’s been covered in the dirt he turned over with his own shovel.

He is a boorish buffoon and he owns it….badly…bigly, even!

None of it matters.

He’s running on emotion and, as conservatives know, Reason, facts, and logic rarely triumph.

I am not hopeful we can win in November. 

There just aren’t enough White, Working Class tears to compete with the other side.
