The Next Four Years

2,947 words

Things have taken a downward slide lately, to say the least. 

The most notable event was the stolen Presidential election. Local courts didn’t want to hear it. SCOTUS didn’t want to hear it, despite reports of a shouting match in their chamber. When Bidet’s campaign cheated on a massive scale, one practically could hear crickets from the MSM, except when they were denying any wrongdoing happened. (This is much different from when Nixon’s campaign carried out a third-rate burglary and some other half-baked shenanigans, and a horde of investigative reporters sank their teeth into it like starving bulldogs.) Even the Tech Tyrants did what they could to prevent a public uproar.

All the traditional safeguards against election fraud failed. Therefore, the political career of this has-been was resurrected, carrying him aloft to the highest position in the country. We’ll have four years of Resident Bidet ahead of us, unless the elderly ROTUS resigns for health reasons or otherwise leaves office. It’s certainly bad development for America to be on a silver alert with Sleepy Joe at the wheel, and we have yet to see how this will develop. Still, things might not be as bad as they could be.

The previous example

2008 now seems like a century ago. I confess that I voted for the big phony McCain because I knew Obama was a much bigger phony. By February 2009, I was wondering how we could survive another three years and eleven months of it. In the next Presidential election, I put my hopes in Romney, who turned out to be a big phony too. (There’s a Mormon prophesy that one of us will save the day when the Constitution hangs by a thread; unfortunately, Mittens wasn’t up to the task.) As much of a bumpy ride it was, we did manage to survive eight years of Obama.

There was a good whiff of sulfur about him. For one thing, one of his overenthusiastic supporters called him a Lightworker, which sounds rather similar to “light-bringer,” or Lucifer in the original Latin. During the early days of the campaign, when my girlfriend saw him for the first time, her immediate thought was “What’s the devil doing on TV?” (My other girlfriend has an even worse opinion of him.) In his home base of Chicago, the “pick three” lottery result on Election Day was the evocative number 666. Many of his supporters looked at this bullshit artist as a savior figure or at least a miracle worker. He is indeed charismatic, which is a good attribute for a President to have, but all the misplaced adulation was the stuff of apocalyptic end-times prophecies. The MSM added to the false messiah business, often snapping photos of him making it look like he had a halo — so very subtle.

None of this is to say that Obama really is the Antichrist, the devil, or Nyarlathotep. Although manifesting the archetype, he’s more like a pale (if you’ll pardon the expression) imitation cut from the same cloth. If the devil had been running the show, the major result would’ve been Doomsday instead of a flaky healthcare plan. The lesson here is that if an evildoer is in charge, it’s better to have an ineffective evildoer.

Obama delivered speeches quite skillfully, which is fortunate for him since his only other talent is selling weed. On the other hand, he didn’t ad-lib so well. The man behind the teleprompter effectively was one of the most powerful men in the country. (For a while, that was some dude who worked at Starbucks.) He had to stay in the good graces of many rich shmucks acting as the power behind the throne. This was as early as when Wall Street types picked his Cabinet for him. Given his far-Left street cred, I have to wonder how much he seethed inwardly when he saw how the game was played. He was expected to serve as a figurehead for the most porcine of the capitalist pigs. I’ll be sure to ask him about that one if I ever get a chance to chat with the Obomber.

Resident Bidet certainly matches the description of ineffective, and much more so. Obama used speechwriters, but at least they were original. Bidet’s 1988 campaign bid got derailed after he was caught plagiarizing. Obama has lots of charisma, but his understudy Joe the Pretender has the charisma of a limp dishrag at his best, and it gets worse whenever he wakes up in front of the camera. (I wonder how he got more votes than The Lightworker.) Moreover, his mind is slipping a few cogs. Worst of all, he cheated his way into the White House in the most illegitimate election since the Radical Reconstruction. He’ll have a red flag in the history books for this, but until then, his term in office will be tainted with scandal. This has certain practical implications, like lacking a popular mandate.

Off to a bad start

I didn’t watch the inauguration, but from what I’ve heard, it was a real groaner. Having the tightest security in American history speaks volumes. The obvious reason was the January 6 capitol building sit-in. The usual suspects melodramatically characterize it as a coup attempt — did they forget about their own election fraud coup? Despite the Leftist bluster about that, it was just a demonstration where things unfortunately got ugly. (I pointedly refuse to armchair-quarterback Charlottesville and likewise won’t criticize this one, most especially after three months of George Floyd riots were characterized as “peaceful protests.”) One outcome was that politicians came face-to-face with angry peasants for the first time in their lives. There were no torches and pitchforks involved, but it certainly scared the daylights out of the inside-the-Beltway types.

In any event, it doesn’t exude confidence to have an inauguration in a cordoned-off capital city guarded by high walls and enough troops to constitute a large division. (Who were they trying to protect themselves from? To ask is to answer.) Unfortunately for some of the Praetorian Guards, they were housed in a parking garage. By some accounts, it was five thousand of them with one power outlet and one toilet. For soldiers vetted for loyalty to Bidet, as if the customary background checks weren’t enough, that was a real slap in the face which won’t be forgotten soon. Turning off one’s supporters is a dumb move.

One of Bidet’s first deeds in office was to cancel the final phase of the Keystone Pipeline. Not only did this put a lot of people out of work, it also put a crimp in relations with Canada. Their unicorn-hugging Prime Minister was no fan of The Donald. (He proposed invading the USA to oust Trump if he didn’t leave office, which would’ve gone remarkably bad.) However, the pipsqueak now has a fresh gripe with the new Bidet administration.

What a track record, less than a month into office! With luck, the next four years might be more entertaining than tyrannical. We shall see.

Trouble ahead?

You can buy It’s Okay to Be White: The Best of Greg Johnson here.

The historical pattern for bull markets is that they last seven years, give or take three. A recession follows; technically, a bear market lasting two quarters counts, but these typically drag on for one to three years. In that case, an economic downturn may be upon us soon, since the last big one bottomed out in the spring of 2009. The Wall Street shock from the Wuhanic Plague (bottoming out in late March 2020) is an interesting data point, but it seems more like a panicky market correction than something that would restart the business cycle.

Bad policies can indeed harm an economy. Still, I’m not one of those who believe that a Chief Executive is — or ought to be — a magic dictator who can tame the business cycle by the force of will. (I’ll omit a long discussion about the limitations of Keynesian theory.) However, the public doesn’t see it that way. Bidet will catch heat for it if there’s a nasty recession, even though it might have little to do with him. Other than that, the gap between Wall Street and Main Street has been increasing, and this has become obvious.

Foreign entanglements

Foreign policy will be an even greater vulnerability. Whatever one has to say about Trump, he didn’t dig the USA deeper into neocon military adventures. We may be back to starting spit-in-your-eye wars in the Middle East, especially now that the Cabinet looks about like the Knesset. Other than that, there are some major potential trouble spots further east in Asia which could bedevil the Commander-In-Cheat.

For one thing, the Chinese have been getting rather froggy lately. China regards Taiwan as a lost territory that they’ve been itching to recover since the beginning of the ChiCom régime. (Taiwan regards China as a lost territory, so the two aren’t likely to come to mutual understanding any time soon.) Thus far, the USA has protected Taiwan. Now that Trump is out of the way, the Chinese sent over a dozen fighters and bombers into Taiwanese airspace.

Bidet needs to grow a pair in a hurry. Failing this geopolitical Shit Test will make the irredentist Chinese conclude that America is no longer willing to stand in the way of Taiwan’s “liberation.” Losing an ally would be a terrible blow to the USA’s prestige, and suck a lot worse for the Taiwanese. I would not wish for war to break out, but if it did, our senile ROTUS probably would neglect to take the golden opportunity to cancel America’s massive national debt in their hands. He could give Chinese investors a massive haircut by revoking their T-bills as economic sanctions, which would erase a big chunk off of the USA’s national debt, but he’ll probably be too busy nodding off in front of a teleprompter.

If Taiwan falls, then the Norks will get ideas too, concluding that the USA has become a paper tiger. That situation could get a lot more serious. China knows better than to go to war with the USA (too many Wal-Marts would be destroyed) but Rocket Man is crazy enough to push the Big Red Button. Trump knew how to handle North Korea, but Bidet won’t be so adept. Even if China leaves Taiwan in peace, the Norks still might get froggy.

Illegals, illegals, illegals

Speaking of wonders from abroad, soon after taking office, a horde of would-be illegal aliens set forth to our greener pastures, as described in an article with the evocative title “Migrant caravan demands Biden administration ‘honors its commitments.’

The outlet reported that they are hoping for a warmer reception when they reach the U.S. border, and a statement issued by migrant rights group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, on behalf of the caravan, said it expects the Biden administration to take action.

Boy howdy, we’ll be right on that one, at your service! (I wish I were kidding.) Anyway, this “Village Without Borders” outfit is not really in the best position to demand diddly squat and be taken seriously. However, the Democratic Party’s enthusiasm for letting in any hominid with a pulse is internationally notorious. It’s a pretty safe bet that Joe the Pretender, with his super-duper big heart, is going to welcome them right in, if not grant them citizenship on the spot.

More recently, a second wave of trespassers set forth from Honduras, bound for Sugar-Daddy-Land. Unless Bidet grows a lot of brain cells in a hurry, this will likely be merely the tip of the iceberg for this Camp of the Saints game. Our great ally to the south surely will let them pass through, but would’ve stopped them at the border, rifles and bayonets at the ready, if they were going to stay in Mexico instead. (Can’t China invade Mexico instead of Taiwan? At least we’d get some interesting fusion cuisine.) Anyway, more from the article:

Biden has promised to reverse many of Trump’s policies on border security and immigration. He has promised to end the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which keeps migrants in Mexico as they await their hearings. The Trump administration has said the program has helped end the pull factors that bring migrants north, but critics say it is cruel and puts migrants at risk.

Biden has also promised a pathway to citizenship for those in the country illegally and a moratorium on deportations by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The migrants’ group also pointed to promises to end the asylum cooperative agreements the administration made with Northern Triangle countries.

Well, that’s super. It’s anyone’s guess how many illegals from south of the border will be emboldened to show up on our doorstep over the next four years. Who’s going to pay for their food, housing, medical care, and all the rest of it? (Well, we already know that.) These open borders policies are cynical measures to accelerate population replacement migration in the effort to turn the USA into a one-party state. Anyone with an IQ greater than that of a fruit fly should understand the real agenda, and it will be increasingly difficult to pretend otherwise.

Finally on the subject of immigration, the travel ban from Muslim countries is going by the wayside. There was little Islamist trouble in the USA during Trump’s watch. Any eruptions that the new arrivals cause will be Bidet’s fault too.

Polarization

Bidet did call for reconciliation, and I’ll have to give him credit for that. Unfortunately, that’s a pretty tall order after years of constant vilification, an effort that has intensified sharply. Some Democrats aren’t on board with holding hands and singing “Kumbayah” now that it’s over. There have been calls for revenge, blacklisting, and even reeducation camps — that’s way classy.

Many people will lose their Blue Pilled misconceptions, and we can help make this happen by bringing attention to these things. An increasing amount of the public has caught onto the Deep State political kabuki theater, or at least they realize that the government doesn’t work exactly like they learned in their civics classes. Others have come to see that the Left — despite any fine sentiments they portray — cares mostly about power, and anything goes to get it. Hostility and contempt from the high corridors never before has been so brazen, especially toward real Americans. The list of illusions that will be shattered goes on.

For the most important item, all Trump supporters have been labeled “white supremacists” according to the latest Narrative. (Is the Left these days a one-trick pony, or what?) That’s even lamer than the “basket of deplorables” remark, because at least Cupcake was unintentionally funny. “White supremacist” actually does have a real meaning, but now it’s mostly just a label that approximately means “heretic.” Throwing one of their most potent devil terms at over seventy million citizens isn’t going to win hearts and minds.

On the other hand, maybe we should congratulate them for inviting a large fraction of the public to the Dissident Right. This incessant “white supremacist” drumbeat will increase the polarization that many Leftists say they don’t like. This will bolster the “whitey bad” Narrative, declaring all of us enemies no matter what our ideology is. That has picked up a considerable amount of steam lately, now quite menacing. It’s much unlike the sweet dreams that Comrade Stanley Levison wrote into St. Dr. Rev. MLK Jr.’s speeches of so long ago.

In times past, whites could stay out of the PC bullseye by professing the “right” opinions, or at least by shutting up about certain subjects. Lately, that’s not good enough, and we’re expected to repent eternally for possessing oodles of “privilege.” Not even that is the endgame; the world the loony Left wants has no place in it for us. The public surely will take notice of this. Lots of mainstream conservatives and civic nationalists will figure out in a hurry that America has been hijacked and The System is not their friend. Of course, that’s old news to us. When mainstream conservatives get the picture, we’ll be there to fill in the missing pieces. With luck, even some high-functioning white liberals will see that they’re on target too, and decide that they no longer want to be chickens voting for Colonel Sanders.

One last thing

Much of the turbulence over the last four years has been the result of the Deep State trying to get rid of Trump by any means possible. Woodrow Wilson was the first globalist-approved President, so they’ve been used to being in power for a very long time. Worst of all for them, they’ve been exposed. What we’ve witnessed from them was a reaction of panic when they felt their control slipping. Again, this paranoia was on full display in the surreal inauguration.

However, they now have one of their own back in office. Even if Bidet is senile, he’s still a Council on Foreign Relations member. We can expect some continued nastiness on their part, of course. On the other hand, they might dial down some of the turbulence. They think they have the peasants right where they want them. It could lead to overconfidence on their part. 

Sun-Tzu might’ve had some things to say about that.

    I voted for O in 2008 because McCain was like an old failing VHS player that just keeps eating your favorite movies. I did not make that mistake a second time, voting 3rd party in 2012 rather than being forced to choose between competing brands of social tyranny. I will never vote for anyone other than PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP for President and thus that might mean writing him in indefinitely. Make those election “officials” count Trump Votes until they go blue in the face.

      Understood. The way I see it, the Republicans are going down the drain pretty soon, as long as they keep ignoring their base.

    “Biden will catch heat for it if there’s a nasty recession.” From whom, exactly? And by that I mean no, he won’t. None of them ever have to care or put up with criticism ever again. What they didn’t already own they stole, and weak, self serving “representatives” let it happen. I figure we’ve got a couple months of talk radio and sites like this left then they never have to hear from us again.

      Bidet will catch heat from the public. This is so even if the MSM’s lips are superglued to his butt more than they are already, and even if anything to the right of Buzzfeed gets shut down. Narrative Control only goes so far.

      There’s an earlier example for this in Jimmy Carter. His popularity, and therefore his effectiveness, took a huge nose dive after the economy tanked. This was when there were only three commercial TV networks, no controlled opposition like LOX News, no public Internet, and no Rush Limbaugh show.

      To make a long story short, even dictators still have to worry about public opinion. They have ways of squashing dissent, of course, but there’s a price to be paid for all that.

        I don’t think he will catch the heat. The MSM will always pull out the Trump card for anything negative that occurs. It was the Bush card for nobama. This won’t change. biden will simply be allowed to fumble and bumble his way through until death do us part. Then the real trouble begins.

        I would like to preempt the following with my admiration for your glass-half-full outlook. I hope you are right. However, Carter had a mostly American-filled America and the opportunity for fair elections still to be held. We don’t now and we really won’t in 4 more years. As for the squashing, the price will be paid by the squashed. Please keep writing and being hopeful, though. We (I) need it more than ever.

    I really prefer the direction this website is taking focusing on the Solzhenitsyn dissident period. I think this sort of 20th century republican “oh geez just hunker down for another 4 years guys” takes on what has occured are really missing the point. This stuff is outdated. we are in the beginning to middle phase of a global corporate takeover. period. Look at how many people are out of work right now, the mask mandates has permanently damaged the psyches of millions of human beings through manipulating the innate hypochondria. the state has allowed for both voting and the sanctity of “temples” (congress) to be defiled by the subhuman morlock peckerwoods. things are not going back to normal.

    people need to start thinking like zeks, you need to become antifragile and build networks. we are not going to be able to just fling jokes at these people anymore, they are trying to do a corporate takeover and they are worried so they will be much more ruthless in suppressing WN. don’t expect this slackjawed football fan take on politics to cut it anymore. the right needs to think more like Solzhenitsyn or even if you can handle it Wes Watson than spewing William F Buckley, Pat Buchanan takes about manuevering for “Next time”. Just my opinion though, maybe in 2 weeks everything will be back to normal.

      That is totally unfair to Buchanan, to lump him in with Cuck in Chief WFB. Pat has been fighting probably longer than you’ve been alive. Read Death of the West or Suicide of a Superpower, and tell me what you find objectionable.

        Buchanan’s only shortcoming is thinking “we can vote our way out of this” is still a viable option. I cut him slack since he has been correct about just about everything, and I get the sense that this shortcoming of his is more wishful thinking than a firmly held belief.

        As far as mea culpas for stupid voting decisions, I fess up to the Bushies. Fortunately, I was spared the embarrassment of having voted for McStain or Romney.

    • Posted February 4, 2021 at 3:14 pm | Permalink

      To set the record straight, I’m not one of those who believe the Republicans will save us the next time around. They’re the Stupid Party, after all. In fact, they’ll probably never win another Presidential election. It’s not like they’ve been doing much good lately anyway. We’re going to have to get pretty creative and move forward in whatever direction possible.

    Opening lines of the article:
    “The most notable event was the stolen Presidential election. Local courts didn’t want to hear it. SCOTUS didn’t want to hear it, despite reports of a shouting match in their chamber.”

    I hear about the Supreme brouhaha, then heard it repudiated with a statement that the Supremes never meet in person due to COVID. So I have to respectfully ask, which is true? Does anyone know, after all this time, the real story behind this report??

      Yea I would also like to know if that story has any weight. But either way, we know they’re totally cucked/spineless cowards. When the most conservative guy on the court is black what does that say about us ?

      I’ll have to make it a point to read Solzhenitsyn soon. Dark times ahead indeed.

    I had a fun encounter with a lesbian Facebook friend of a friend the other day after she criticized him for jokingly saying his old pic was of wannabe white supremacists or skinheads. She took high offense to it and I got into the fray as well. She is married to her lesbian lover and preaches BLM forever. When I mentioned to her that the BLM boys wouldn’t care whether or not she wrote kind words about them when the burning down starts, she asked whether I fear black people? Personally, no I don’t. That doesn’t mean there is no danger. She is, of course, as white as snow in Missouri and not willing to walk the walk and bed down in the nearest hood. I suspect there will be a helluva lot of teeth gnashing when these sequestered white progressives come face to face with the reality of their BLM masters. It was definitely entertaining.

    • Posted February 4, 2021 at 2:56 pm | Permalink

      The way I see it, a lot of people are going to get mugged by reality. This process already has been under way for a good while. If push comes to shove, even types like the woke lesbian you mentioned might figure out some things. We’ll be there to help fill in the missing pieces of their belated education. As the old saying goes, “your uniform is your skin.”

    I’ve been making the same point since whenever, but I don’t know what international law allows. But surely if you have imposed a naval blockade, are carpet-bombing enemy civilians and conducting unrestricted submarine warfare you are also allowed to cancel your debt obligations!

    Are Treasury securities generic bits of paper (like dollar bills), or can T-bills be identified as having been specifically allocated?

      Whatever the strongest demands.

    • Posted February 4, 2021 at 2:34 pm | Permalink

      If China goes to war with us directly, we can cancel their T-bills as war plunder. Looting has a long provenance in warfare, going back to the beginning of time, and was basically how the Emancipation Proclamation worked.

      If China only goes to war with Taiwan, we can cancel their T-bills on the basis of “because F-U” and call it economic sanctions.

      There’s not much usable unclaimed land left in the world. That leaves secession, which I don’t recommend and is fraught with danger. The way I see it, the best way forward is to stand our ground and start taking our country back – no easy task, of course.
