Trump Part of Dem Plan to Brand GOP as Bigoted


The Democratic Party has a long-term plan to undermine the Republican Party as bigoted and extreme, including promoting a Donald Trump candidacy.

According to leaked emails released by Wikileaks, the Clinton campaign saw the value in branding the opposing party as radical and bigoted in order to make the Democrats seem like the reasonable alternative. Part of that strategy included elevating more outspoken candidates like Donald Trump during the Republican primary in order to enforce that narrative.

In an email to campaign staff, Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, outlined the party’s greater strategy:

“I think we should just be clear about exactly what news we want to make. Personally, I think branding the GOP as bigoted and extreme is more in line with our bigger picture, long term goals, so I would favor sticking with asking why they didn’t speak out against what [sic] trump.”

Why I Won’t Be Watching Tonight’s Debate


“Mr. Roark, we’re alone here. Why don’t you tell me what you think of me? In any words you wish. No one will hear us.”
“But I don’t think of you.” – The Fountainhead

We’ve reached a pivotal moment in 2016. After eight years of war and upheaval, combined with growth of cancerous government and economic collapse, we were treated to another eight of more of the same, this time under the banner of hope and change. The moment is ripe for real change. And, from the looks of it, the worst is yet to come. Squaring off to debate for the sacred office of US President, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, possibly two of the most corrupt and revolting purported humans to ever closely grasp at running the world’s most powerful nation, are ready for an ugly fight. It will be nasty. It will be ridiculous. And they want you to watch.

Will I be watching the debate tonight? Not a chance. Here’s why: [Read more…]

Last Stand in Canuckistan


Any Canadian who thinks Americans
are arrogant and dumb
have their suspicions confirmed
every time some disgruntled American voter
threatens to leave for the Great White North
If their candidate is not elected President.

This idle threat is tragically American,
reeking of delusions of exceptionalism.
The myth that we are so wonderful
that Canada will welcome us all.

“Red-blooded” Americans
whose homeland pulls back the welcome mat for foreigners
somehow expect that wherever Americans emigrate
we will be treated just the opposite.

It never occurs to them that Canada may not want us there
perhaps they still think Canada belongs to the U.S.
like Americans did long ago
back when Manifest Destiny aspired to stretch north. [Read more…]
