Dec 12 2016
I have hesitated on posting anything about the election or transition because most of what I am reading is nothing but “sore loser” dribble. It has just not worth the time to read, let alone comment on.
As I watched this historic melt down, I have observed how poorly all this is playing with the Trump voters. So let me look at some of the more classic hyperventilating and translate it from the dire doom and gloom of the Political Industrial Complex (PIC*) and into the frame of the Trump voters. Translate it into “Les Deplorable-ese”.
My favorite meltdowns always include a bit of “we have to stop the poisoning, or the destruction of our society”. When these idiots attack Trump, they attack Les Deplorables – his supporters. It did not work in the primaries or the general election. It is not working now – at least not working in the way the bloviating fools think it is.
This first example is especially rich in that it misses the election results from 2009 through 2016, and what these results say about those flailing in the “Bursted Bubble” of the PIC. It misses what the rest of us living on Main Street USA and living in “reality” (not to be confused with Reality TV, which is not really “real“) have been saying since 2009/2010. And that is we have had enough. Trump is there to drain the swamp and chart a completely new direction on many fronts – Per Our Wishes!
So we begin with the “we must fight dirty against Trump and his supporters” – i.e., we must not respect our representative democracy:
The emerging Trump administration is a frightening mixture of free-market fundamentalists and C-list conspiracy theorists. This motley crew may well run headlong into political disaster.
What Les Deplorables read: Emphasis mine. This person is still in the denial stage. There is very little chance Trump will have a political disaster as long as he (a) does not listen to these wailing political elites and (2) those same elites continue to mindlessly rage against the coming changes. The more the rage, the better the change coming.
Remember, Democrats are in their weakest position in national and state government since before the Great Depression.
What Les Deplorables read: A very brief ray of reality shines through! But is completely lost in no time:
Not only did voters never punish Republican leaders for pouring sand into the gas tank of representative democracy, they granted them victories in nearly every contested House and Senate race, proving incontrovertibly that voters simply do not care about or understand the ways that Republican leadership subverted longstanding norms of parliamentary procedure.
What Les Deplorables read: Procedure-Smeadure. We wanted change, not excuses. If a dumb process, rule or guideline is in the way – remove it! And those republicans pouring sand into the engine of the Democrats – we sent them there to do that. Doh!
In perhaps the most brazen violation of democratic norms in living memory, the Republicans just stole the colossally important swing seat on the Supreme Court by obliterating precedent and refusing even to hold hearings for Merrick Garland.
What Les Deplorables read: And Then There Was Great Rejoicing!! On Main Street USA.
Democrats clearly hoped that at some point, the voters would get Woke and point their fingers where they belong — at this clique of cynical power-grubbers in the House — remove them from office, and replace them with people that at least care whether the U.S. constitutional system is able to function as designed.
What Les Deplorables read: Our fingers were pointed, and they pushed the ballot box options from 2009 to 2016 that gave the us US House and US Senate (along with Governors and state houses/senates) we wanted. We did use the power to remove fools from office – you fools! You just don’t recognize you were the problem to be removed from power.
Ain’t Democracy Great!
On the other hand, no. It’s time for Democrats to say no. To everything.
What Les Deplorables read: Feel free. But recognize we the voters said “NO!” to liberalism. It would be better if the left sat down and shut up if they refuse to participate. Crying and screaming is not working – trust me.
Now to Jill Stein’s recounts (various news source anyone can Google).
What Les Deplorables read: Stein is a sore loser from the PIC making lots of money off desperate fools. She is trying to dismiss Main Street USA’s legitimate votes and get rich. She will only succeed in the latter. Her saying the election process is rigged and must be made accurate is a pile of smelly BS. This is why the Deplorables rose up – to stop this insane nonsense.
Now onto the Defecting Elector in Texas:
A member of the electoral college from Texas is maintaining that he will not cast his vote for President-elect Donald Trump when the college completes the electoral process later this month.“The election is not over — the election happens on December 19th when presidential electors cast their ballots. That’s when the election is complete,” said Chris Suprun, the Texas elector, in an interview on “New Day” on Wednesday.
What Les Deplorables read: This Texas-sized moron forgot that he cast is one vote “as a citizen” on November 8th. He took an oath (which clearly means nothing to him) to represent the will of the State of Texas and her voters – who clearly voted for Trump to be the next POTUS. All his self-serving rationalizations aside – he is as anti-American as they come.
What he really is, is a puppet of those who would do anything to keep their power and gravy-train rolling. If he cannot vote for Trump then step down – there is honor on that path. But don’t be such a tool and diss your neighbors.
What Les Deplorables see is someone who is disenfranchising 60+ million plus voters who propelled Trump to his landslide win. We see self a absorbed, self appointed, god-in-his-own-mind elector-wannabe who thinks he has the Wisdom of Noah to overrule the rest of us and our votes.
I voted in VA. Trump lost VA. I would find it disgusting to try to convince, or threaten, or bribe (my guess on this clown) any VA Elector to ignore the will of the people of my state. Apparently this idiot in Texas is not nearly as morally pure as he thinks he is. And Les Deplorables see him for what he is.
Expect a lot of new laws to remove any doubt as to the limited role electors play in our nation. Per our Constitution.
In light of reports Friday evening that Russians interfered with the 2016 presidential election to assist the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, supporters of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton are seeking out possible legal remedies in the unlikely event that a winner is certified in the election that investigative inquiries later reveal resulted from foreign interventionism or some other fraud.
However, at least one court decision suggests there may be some federal authority to invalidate the election outcome after the fact, and replace a candidate benefitted by fraud with his opponent.
What Les Deplorables read: Oh PUlleease! This is beyond stupid, beyond desperate and well deep into “Pathetic!”
We all remember the crap aimed at Trump from the debates about honoring the results of the election, etc, etc, etc. And now we get this. After all the hand-wringing back then about the need for a smooth transition, now Democrats are floating any and all Lead Balloons to try and overturn the will of We The People.
This is a neon sign that the PIC cannot and will not respect those voters who determined that Trump is by far less dangerous to our country than these cuckoo-nest escapees who have been running the show for decades.
One final note – Les Miserables not only remember the violence initiated by the Democrats and the left (and admitted to on video), we also know most acts of violence and destruction in Trump’s name is really acts by leftists. We have seen enough of them caught in the act. So did a Trump supporter burn down a black church and spray paint “Trump” on it? Les Deplorables would probably agree “not very likely”. We will not assume Trump supporters are behind the violence. This year has shown that is not typically the case.
Summing Up: What all this blathering has done is confirm the wisdom of Les Delporables and their support of Trump. This “vomit of denial” coming from the left and the “media” is proof-positive that we needed to go way outside the PIC to stop the madness. Now we have the irrefutable evidence that this madness has spread far and wide across all parties and consumed the national “news” media. The country definitely needs a good cleaning out at the top.
Who in their right mind even writes about this stuff?
You know what Les Deplorables see coming out of all this?
This all is heading someplace, to some ultimate conclusion: A rubber-stamp 2nd term for President-Elect Donald J Trump! He is going to need more than 4 years to clear up this pile of BS.
* The Political Industrial Complex encompasses all those elites whose livelihoods are predicated on central-control of resources and who determine who is allowed to succeed in society. It is a bipartisan exclusive club. It includes the Politicians and their career staffers. It includes crony donors and lobbyists who reap government windfalls and special treatment that average citizens cannot obtain. It includes the PIC industrial base of pollsters, consultants, etc. And it includes the pliant news media, whose success rest on access to those in power, and in return for access making sure no bad news will disrupt said power.
