Wasted my first opportunity to vote on George McGovern. Been spending the rest of my life atoning for my sin.

Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump are the two greatest presidents in my lifetime, and possibly the past century.

Barak Obama was the most corrupt in history.

There. That should set the record straight.

Edgework comments on Sep 16, 2019:
I find it difficult to comprehend how all the people whining about Trump not fitting the expected mold could possibly look at the Insane Clown Posse assembled on the Democratic debate stage last week, and not realize that their attitudes, their willingness to fit the mold is what has brought us to this point: where ten candidates for the presidency from a major party actively push policies that would destroy the country they wish to lead. Are we still pretending that his approach, while chaotic, unpredictable, even crazy at times, has not accomplished the first major resistance to the encroaching leftist agenda in 60 years? Joe McCarthy was considered an uncouth ruffian who horrified the establishment on both sides of the aisle, but who delivered the kind of body blow to the left that set them back long enough to allow Ronald Reagan to be elected. As Ann Coulter demonstrates in her book, “Treason,” McCarthy’s biggest failing was the degree to which he underestimated the threat to the country. After all is said and done about how he was a thug and how he trampled on the human spirit, the question remains: were there communists in the State Department? As she documents conclusively, the answer is a resounding “yes.” The question today is, “Has the Democratic Party become the party of treason?” Clearly, the answer again is yes. The Democrats simply cannot be trusted with our country. For God’s sake, get behind the only politician in a position to fight back, who has the will to do so.

Edgework comments on Sep 14, 2019:
Did you ever read “Great Moderates In History?” Neither have I. Don’t spend a lot of time looking for it. When I think of moderates, at their best, I envision forming a link between factions, diplomacy, compromise to get a deal signed, the whole “reaching across the isle,” thing. In a less favorable light, I think of someone with a crease in their ass from sitting on the fence. It’s all well and good to see problems with Trump and the direction of Republican Party, but I’m far more concerned with the problems in what once was the Democratic Party. There are no moderates left, and the fanatics in charge now abandoned politics long ago. For them it’s a religious war, something the Republican moderates can’t even recognize, let alone respond to. Trump is like Patton, an embarrassment to diplomats and professional politicians everywhere. But he fights and he wins, and right now, if you ever want our political landscape to again have a place for moderation, we need someone like him to begin reversing the trend. Otherwise, you’ll get eaten.

When you’re dealing with what is essentially a 14th century culture, factions of which feel perfectly justified in committing mass slaughter it they feel the slightest offense, it tends to make people reluctant to offend. We in the west have spent over six centuries evolving beyond those visceral reactions. We’re proud of our intellects. Our tradition of law. Our civilization. They could care less. If we want to reverse the process, we’re going to have to recognize that our methods are impotent against raw barbarism. We’re going to need to dust off some techniques and behaviors that we told ourself we’d moved beyond.

Edgework comments on Sep 1, 2019:
You make a serious blunder when you project future events based on current circumstances, particularly when those circumstances are the result of Trump’s intentional disruption. There was really only one calculation to work through: either continue with the status quo... or not. Trump’s approach is to throw big rocks onto the placid surface of the status quo until all prior assumptions are wrecked. Only then can something new emerge. Don’t assume China can withstand the economic pressure of a trade war. Their economy’s a mess. Exports are crucial. If Trump manages to isolate them with a series of trade deals like the one with Japan, the status quo would be doomed
More wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh about the electoral college. [youtu.be]
Edgework comments on Sep 1, 2019:
The left hasn’t been able to win by following the rules for several decades. The agenda was always a non-starter at the ballot box, which is why they consistently lie about what they stand for. For years, they used the courts to legislate their agenda from the bench, but after Trump and McConnell have been fast tracking conservative appointments, that’s no longer much of an option. So the only path left is the one they’ve preferred all along: change the rules. Stack the Supreme Court, kill the Electoral College, open the borders and give illegals free stuff, then give them the vote. It’s time we stopped letting them brand us, and instead apply our counter brand: treason. The Democratic Party, what’s left of it, has become the party of treason. Never let them set the terms of the debate. Never defend yourself against bogus charges of racism. What is being attempted is the destruction of the country. Call it what it is. Treason

Edgework comments on Aug 31, 2019:
Pamela Geller’s take-no-prisoners approach enrages many, particularly since she exposes inconvenient truths the media lies about. I was present at the final event for her “Draw the Prophet,” contest in Garland TX, when a traffic cop dropped with headshots two clowns who’d come to shoot up the crowd as they were leaving. Of course, Pamela was blamed for being “unnecessarily inflammatory.” This, by conservatives as well as leftists. The rot extends right and left. Three years into the age of Trump there appears to be signs of revival, but I don’t think the Republican Party will ever be comfortable fighting. Losing is in their DNA. Something new will rise to take it’s place, and the first signs that it is happening will be when the likes of Pamela Geller are given the respect they deserve.
I offer this listing with great concern .
Edgework comments on Aug 24, 2019:
I think a more reasonable approach for conservatives would be to compile a list of reputable sites on the left. I’ve long been a fan of The Nation, not because I agree with them all that much, but because they take their arguments seriously and back them up, to the point that I often come away thinking about some issues in a new way. During the peak of the Russian Hoax, they were the only news source that published hard evidence totally squashing the notion that Russians ( or anyone outside the country) hacked the DNC emails. The rest of the left still hasn’t gotten the memo. Jordan Peterson makes a compelling case for why the left and the right need each other. In today’s toxic, combative environment, that seems to be the last thing anyone wants to hear. But exposing oneself to reasoned thought from the other side would seem to be a good starting place.
You know, it’s funny.
Edgework comments on Aug 22, 2019:
Not sure what you’re thinking when you say pause the progressive agenda. Assuming such a thing is remotely realistic: what then? A pause... for how long? Which parts of the progressive agenda would they be expected to set aside for however long the “pause” is in effect? Why would they in the first place? The whole point of the progressive agenda is confrontation. Unrelenting confrontation, until the opposition gives up in exhaustion. You are suggesting a political resolution to an opponent who lives on religious ground. Compromise is not possible. They really believe that all opposition is evil and must be stamped out. You may think, “That’s just extreme,” but I’d ask for any evidence that they believe otherwise. In fact, all evidence points to a complete unwillingness to compromise, for to do so grants a validity to your opponent’s position that is in clear violation of Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals. They set out the parameters of the confrontation 50 years ago, in what was simply an updating of Lenin’s tactics 50 years before that. That’s a lot of time to acquaint ourselves with their thinking. Maybe it’s time we took them at their word.
Epstein--think about his secretary/procurer for the last 30+ years.
Edgework comments on Aug 21, 2019:
My only question regarding such a doomsday device is why Epstein himself didn’t have one. If Maxwell could rig such a set-up, surely it was in her mentor’s scope. I’m thinking of a couple ways to resolve this apparent conundrum: 1) he’s not dead. He served his intelligence masters well and was whisked away out the back foot while some wino look-alike was allowed to be photographed on the gurney before sipping up the body bag. More than one comparative analysis commented on the difference in the shape of the nose against known photos of Epstein. Or, he was never more than a pawn, and the avenues through which such damning evidence would flow are locked up tighter than a sphincter. If an event takes place, and no media reports it, did it ever really happen?

Edgework comments on Aug 20, 2019:
“Racist” is the new conversation stopper, right out of Alinsky’s playbook: never debate issues, demonize your opponent and invalidate him. Donald Trump was successful in New York City for thirty years, and got along with everyone. Never a whiff of racism or anything like it. His construction sites were notoriously egalitarian. Then he ran against Hillary Clinton and suddenly he’s the next Grand Wizard of the KKK, even though all those guys have traditionally been Democrats. I don’t think anyone really thinks he’s a racist. It’s politics, pure and simple, albeit a smarmy, disgustingly low-level brand of politics, which is already a low-level game to begin with. However, when they talk about his base, I think they believe it: we’re all ignorant, knuckle-dragging, Bible-thumping, gun loving meth cookers who hate all minorities and want to turn the country lily white. They believe that. Why not? They’ve never tried to know what goes on between the coasts. Surely there are no ideas coming from that fetid backwater worthy of attention. Trot out the racist label and make certain they’ll never have to actually think; and certainly don’t ever grant genuine humanity to those you’ve decided to hate. There’s no arguing with them. They abandoned rational discourse decades ago. We have to stop letting them set the parameters of the conflict. They try to brand us racists because that’s how communists trying to take over a government always operate. If we’re going to come out of this intact, we’ll need to be as committed to destroying them as they are to destroying us.

Edgework comments on Jul 2, 2019:
Opposition to Sharia law does not necessarily imply hatred of Muslims as a group. It is, however, important to keep in mind that adherence to Sharia Law does bring with it a hatred of all that western civilization has evolved over the past five or six centuries. The problem with Muslim culture is it never had a Renaissance. Prior to that watershed development in the west, our culture was as bigoted, narrow-minded, intolerant, brutal and intentionally cruel as we find in most Muslim societies today. Keep in mind: the Renaissance didn’t just happen in 1450, like turning on a light switch. Giordano Bruno was burned as a heretic in 1600 for espousing sound scientific principles. Darwin finally released scientific inquiry from the clutches of the church over 150 years ago, but the matter is still unsettled in many quarters. It’s true that Darwin has many problems, but for most of us, these days, the Book of Genesis isn’t among them. Nothing of the sort has modified mainstream Islamic thought. We think of religious belief as falling on a sliding scale, from personal and private, to demonstratively public, to fanatical. There is no sliding scale in Islam. One adheres to the faith, or one is a heretic. We keep hearing so much about the myth of the moderate Muslims, wondering when they will take a stand and recapture their faith from the fanatics who hijacked it. Notice it’s only western politicians like Barak Obama and George Bush who spout such ideas. There are no moderate Muslims. That’s why we haven’t seen them. A serious mistrust of such a culture, vocal in its opposition to all we stand for and all we have accomplished over the centuries, is no phobia. It is self-preservation and common sense. You know the difference between a radical Muslim and a moderate Muslim? A radical Muslim wants to cut your head off because you’re a heretic. A moderate Muslim wants a radical Muslim to cut your head off because you’re a heretic

criminey359 You would have effortlessly fit into the leftist clown car on display the past two nights. Like all of them, you simply posit the “border crisis” as an act of God, like a tornado wiping out a small town in Oklahoma or a passenger jet crashing on takeoff, events calling for a humanitarian response from all who aspire to a standard of good will. God had nothing to do with this. This “crisis” is the product of the cynical, radical left, willing to create and exploit any measure of human suffering, as long as it furthers the political narrative and their agenda. The list of fallacious premises upon which your position rests is both exhaustive and indefensible. A few of the more egregious offenders: * These migrations are nothing more than a spontaneous, grassroots movement of huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Bullshit. This is classic Cloward and Piven. (Look it up if you don’t know who they are.) By your own definition, they are the poorest of the poor, the genuine wretched of the earth. So who’s footing the bill, and why now, at this point in history? Who is orchestrating these mass movements? * It doesn’t matter how they got here. They’re here now and we have to do something. The children, the children, the children!! If the intended result is to overwhelm the system (see the aforementioned Cloward and Piven), and said system is, in fact, overwhelmed, and you now use the situation that you have carefully put into place, as a political club to further your agenda, you are immoral and your claims of compassion are revealed as lies, pure and simple. * They all have a right to be here. In other words, we as a nation have no right to control the integrity of our borders. Why don’t you just say it: you want to eliminate borders, which, is to say, you want the United States to cease to exist as a nation. This has always been the ultimate goal of the left, regardless of whatever “crisis du jour” onto which you piggyback your agenda. Come on: say it; I dare you. * Disagreement with any aspect of the agenda can only be due to racism, bigotry, xenophobia and all round nastiness. I’ll respond to that in the only way it warrants: go fuck yourself.

When these times are viewed from a distance, the meta story will be that this was when Trump managed to disrupt the status quo so carefully put in place by the left for the past 60 years. Topics ignored for decades are now on the table for discussion. The left has been forced to crawl out from behind the facade that theirs is the true patriotism, and stand unmasked as the Marxist/socialists they’ve always been, with their treasonous intent on full display. In the heartland, a slumbering beast has been shaken awake, and it is in one hell of a bad mood. Jump to no conclusions. The show’s just starting. Now’s when things get interesting.

Plot points tend to attach themselves to characters trying to reestablish balance in their lives.

For the left, the agenda is everything. Objective truth has no meaning. All that matters is political truth, which is anything that advances the agenda. For us, it’s a conversation over different points of view. For them, it’s a religious crusade. We seek to win elections; they seek to burn us at the stake. The hatred they express for Trump is because he chooses not to be complicit in our own destruction. He chooses to fight back. There will, perhaps, be time again for diplomacy, decorum and collegiality in our political discourse. But for now, we’re at war. We need to recognize that whatever they think, do or say, their one overarching priority is destroying us. Once that is recognized, all the questions about why they behave the way they do become easy to answer.

Edgework comments on Apr 16, 2019:
Ayn Rand was an interesting kind of triple threat: a clumsy writer, a naive economist and a somewhat inconsistent philosopher. And yet, somehow the result was far more than the sum of its parts. I always thought she was too early for her own good. She existed in a world where academic argument and presentation was the accepted context for ideas such as hers. She would have fared much better in the est/Forum environment of transformational workshops. She was trying to do through intellectual interaction what is essentially a paradigm shift in worldview, something that is achieved much more successfully in the confrontion with self experience of such seminars. I too was affected by The Fountainhead, but moreso by Atlas Shrugged. While she never created real characters (if your characters are all bad or all good, you haven’t done your job as a writer), but she serves the necessary function of defining the black and white poles, for only the do we have an accurate scale to evaluate the myriad shades of grey in which daily life actually takes place.
Is J.A. ( OF WIKILEAKS) REALLY SETH RICH?

Metadata from the email dumps proves they did not get uploaded from a foreign server. (Bye bye Russian hackers.) It’s impossible to state conclusively since the FBI never actually examined either the DNC servers or John Podesta’s system (your tax dollars at work), but if the emails had been copied directly onto a flash drive, they would have presented the same profile. And with Seth Rich’s murder, no more infodumps were forthcoming.
So.
Edgework comments on Apr 15, 2019:
Until the fabled “moderate Muslims” stand up to publicly disavow the extremists (who they are so fond of assuring us represent a small minority), they’re indistinguishable from one another. When Jerry Falwell said 9/11 was God’s punishment for our tolerance of the gay lifestyle, public leaders both secular and religious couldn’t scream loud enough that “That’s not my God.” That’’s how you tell the difference between the crazies and the sane: you listen to what they say. It’s a self selecting process. Omar has been clear about what she’s been saying from the start. No one—not moderate Muslims, not moderate Democrats—has attempted to separate themselves from her. Draw what conclusions you will, from that
In a nation torn by conflict by the extremes, the United States needs a push toward moderacy.
Edgework comments on Apr 15, 2019:
Did you ever read the book, “Great Moderates In History?” Neither has anyone else. I get your point, but sometimes standing for something and being willing to defend it, even fight for it, is considered extreme.
Ya know.

Edgework comments on Apr 4, 2019:
How about we find new ways to cross-section the political landscape that aren’t rooted in 20th century Cold War oppositions. It’s happening anyway, as a natural process of the onward March of history. When change is on the table, resistance is futile. It will happen, and it won’t have a lot to do with the ideologues who are only too willing to take credit. No one knows what it means to be Republican or Democrat any more, only that the parties bear so little resemblance to the parties of the 80’s and 90’s that the designations are little more than a technicality. Our problem right now is that most are thinking in terms of what they are not. When someone defines what we really are, and have become, discourse might begin to take place.
I find it harder and harder to find someone who is a true moderate.
Edgework comments on Mar 30, 2019:
I don’t think you are describing a moderate. Just because no one’s coined a label for your positions doesn’t mean they’re not strongly held. Or consistent. When I think of the term moderate, I imagine someone with a crease in his butt from sitting on the fence. As Rush Limbaugh used to say, you’ve never seen a book titled “Great Moderates In History” I think a problem with our political discourse is that we are saddled with categories that date from the Cold War era, or even earlier. I tend towards conservative/Libertarian myself, yet I grant that many of the positions and priorities of the left have merit. Just because they argue for them as ineptly as possible doesn’t alter that. What’s needed are new way to cross-section political thought and a new sense of what the categories are. Until then, the OP will wonder where he belongs. I’d say he belongs right where he is.

Edgework comments on Mar 29, 2019:
I don’t believe anyone “got it wrong.” That sounds like an “Oops, my bad,” moment. This was a two year+ calculated lie designed to first corrupt an election, and then take down a legitimate government. Everyone lied and told themselves it was for a higher calling: history had clearly made a mistake and history had to be put back on track. True, the useful idiots dutifully believed whatever they were fed, but the abandonment of objective truth in favor of political truth— whatever furthers the agenda—was no oversight, no act of carelessness, no well-intentioned goof. It was treason designed post-election to cover the treason committed pre-election. The stakes were high, but if they’d faced anyone besides Trump, someone who would have folded like a cheap camera and resigned, they’d have gotten away with it.
