The Towering Trumpeting Trumpster Vs. the Hideous Hildabeast Heifer!!

Aug 2, 2016 — Jim ONeill

It’s Epic!  It’s Colossal!  It’s YUGE! 

(“Hideous Hildabeast Heifer”—does that qualify as an ad hominem attack?  I suppose it could be construed as such…in which case my bad). 

Be that as it may, a struggle of titans to equal the Trump/Clinton debates has not been seen since “Godzilla vs. Mothra.”  The debates will be “must see TV” like no other political event before them.

Trump Speech One for the Ages

Jul 22, 2016 — Jim ONeill

America is a nation of believers, dreamers, and strivers that is being led by a group of censors, critics, and cynics.

Remember: all of the people telling you that you can’t have the country you want, are the same people telling you that I wouldn’t be standing here tonight.  No longer can we rely on those elites in media, and politics, who will say anything to keep a rigged system in place.Donald J. Trump, Republican nominee for president 7/21/16

The speech that Donald J. Trump gave last night was one of the most powerful and important speeches given in American history…in world history.

The Hip and Edgy New Right Vs. the Stale and Decadent Old Left

Jul 17, 2016 — Jim ONeill

Right-wing culture is to me the only subversive culture that’s going on at the moment…The Left has just become this giant boring monolith—“ooo we’re so edgy.” The Right-wing culture, conservative culture, is the most subversive to the dominant order. ...The real edginess is occurring where basic facts of reality are being reasserted. —Stefan Molyneux, Vox Day “How SJWs (Social Justice Warriors) Destroy Everything

The Left is the establishment; they are the dominant culture; they are the status quo. They largely run the media, arts, and entertainment industry, they control the bulk of government, NGOs, and big business—including most of the Internet/computer giants.

Rio and the Joys of Multiculturalism and Identity Politics

Jul 9, 2016 — Jim ONeill

I recently read about how early-arriving Olympic contestants in Brazil are complaining about the condition of the waters they train by and in—oil slicks, the odd body part, mosquitoes, “superbugs” and such—picky, picky, picky. It struck me how opposed to the spirit of multiculturalism such provincial and benighted attitudes are—how xenophobic, how paternalistic, how…white.

Which led me to think about Kanye West’s recent request that Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and other “white” publications stop commenting on black music. Right on Kanye!

Trump and the Importance of Who We Are

Jul 5, 2016 — Jim ONeill

It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.Sun Tzu, (circa 544-496 BC), “The Art of War”

One of the most important paragraphs in Dr. Sebastian Gorka’s recently published book ‘Defeating Jihad’ concerns Sun Tzu’s famous dictum quoted above.  Gorka states that people often focus on the “know your enemy” part of the quote, and ignore the equally important “know thyself” part—a foolhardy and calamitous mistake.

It is indeed good to know your enemy if you wish to win, but Sun Tsu’s [sic] recipe for ultimate victory begins with knowing yourself—why you are going to war, what you are fighting for.  ...What do I represent? What am I prepared to risk blood and treasure for, and why exactly am I going to war? If you cannot answer these questions, then you should not be going to war at all.—Dr. Sebastian Gorka, ‘Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War’

Lynch Preaching the Gospel of Spineless Suicidal Stupidity

Jun 23, 2016 — Jim ONeill

Attorney General Loretta Lynch said that love and compassion are the best responses to terrorism during remarks to the media in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday [6/21/16].—David Rutz “Lynch: Best Response to Terrorism Is Love and Compassion”

Let’s get something straight right off the bat: being a rug-mat is not compassionate, nor is it loving, and it is most certainly not wise.  On the contrary, it is delusional irresponsibility of the most asinine sort.  It harms both the rug-mat and whoever is wiping their feet on them.  You do no one any favors when you encourage a fool in their folly, or more to the point, when you give carte blanche to murderous jihadists.

Thank God for Conservative Women

Jun 13, 2016 — Jim ONeill

Dare to speak out [conservatively]? When you’re black? When you’re an actress? When you’re a woman? There goes your social life—Stacy Dash “There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative

At the outset let me say that in my opinion liberals have come up with any number of good ideas in the past, and I like to give credit where it’s due—but it should also be noted that liberals are notorious for running good ideas into the ground.

It is a truism, one that perhaps goes unappreciated by most of us, that a virtue taken to an extreme can become a vice. For example, the virtue of patience taken to an extreme becomes procrastination; caution and concern morph into fear and anxiety, politeness becomes obsequiousness, moderate liberals turn into leftist nitwits, and so on. Moderation, (what Buddha called “The Middle Way”), appears to be a key element of a happy, healthy, sane existence.

Trump Versus the Politically Correct Road to Hell

May 11, 2016 — Jim ONeill

Indeed the [surest] road to Hell is the gradual one—the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts….C.S. Lewis “The Screwtape Letters”

...political correctness basically amounts to nothing more nor less than a prohibition on speaking the truth. ...Expressed differently, when you hate the truth, then truth becomes “hate.”David Kupelian “Is Trump America’s knight in shining armor?”

The United States is on the road to hell, no doubt.  “We the people” have been traveling on it for decades—for the most part asleep at the wheel and cleverly lulled into a false sense of security.

Trump Vs. Soros: Battle of the Billionaires

Mar 13, 2016 — Jim ONeill

“The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.”—Gyorgy Schwartz AKA George Soros “The Age of Infallibility

“Make America Great Again”—Donald Trump campaign slogan

The forces arrayed against the United States and freedom are beyond daunting—way beyond daunting. Among the forces promoting a leftist vision of “utopia” is the group “MoveOn.org”—funded largely by billionaire George Soros. “MoveOn.org” is purported to have been partially responsible for forcing the cancellation of a Trump rally last night in Chicago.

Trump is Not Pure as the Driven Snow, and Guess What? I Don’t Care!

Mar 3, 2016 — Jim ONeill

Recently a number of nominal “conservatives” have come out en masse against the Republican candidate Donald Trump. Some of them are “big guns,” “heavy hitters.” Okay…good, that’s good. Best to clear the air so that we know who is licking the collective butt of the arrogant elites, and who is in truth supporting “we the people.”

You know the faux conservatives opposing Trump: the phony “conservative” media outlets, neo-cons, and other RINO globalists who are at long last shedding their chameleon-skins and showing their true colors.

“We don’t need a policy wonk as president. We need a leader as president. ...I’ve liked Trump since the beginning,” Hunter said [Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-CA], and he hinted that other members of Congress might secretly support Trump as well.—Nick Gass “Trump lands his first Congressional endorsements

‘Telefon’ in Kalamazoo?

Feb 23, 2016 — Jim ONeill

In a phone interview, Mackenzie Waite said that Mellen, her fiance, was picked up by an Uber car — a silver Chevrolet Equinox driven by Dalton — about 4:30 p.m. for what was supposed to be a short ride. Halfway through the trip, the driver picked up a phone call on his Bluetooth. Mellen couldn’t hear what was said, but the driver began acting strangely.  “He blew through a stop sign, sideswiped a car, starting driving in [and] out of the other lane of traffic,” Waite said. “My fiance was just pleading with him to stop.”—Mark Guarino, William Wan, Missy Ryan “Uber driver suspected in shootings in Mich. that kill six

“All it will take to trigger them is a simple phone call.”—Trailer for ‘Telefon’ (1977)

Trump and Cruz: What is a Conservative?

Feb 15, 2016 — Jim ONeill

I heartily accept the motto, “That government is best which governs least;” and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which I also believe, “That government is best which governs not at all;” and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have.—Henry Thoreau (1817-1862) “Civil Disobedience”

To hear some conservative elitists tell it you would think that to be considered a true conservative you need a special handshake, secret decoder ring, and a notarized certificate stating your conservative bona fides in triplicate. The truth is much simpler.

The traditional political spectrum runs from Big Government on the left (liberal) to limited or no government on the right (conservative). If you favor limited or no government then you are a political conservative, period. For example, today we would call Henry Thoreau a political conservative.

Trump’s Not a Conservative Icon, and I Don’t Care!

Feb 14, 2016 — Jim ONeill

Trump’s no conservative an’ I don’t care.
Doo-da, doo-da.
Trump’s no conservative an’ I don’t care.
Oh de doo-dah day.
Gonna run all night; gonna run all day.
Trump’s no conservative an’ I don’t care.
Votin’ Trump anyway.

To the tune of “Camptown Races/Ladies,” Stephen Foster (1826-1864) (Note: also works with “Trump’s not a liberal….”)

Trump is a philosophically unmoored political opportunist who would trash the broad conservative ideological consensus within the GOP in favor of a free-floating populism with strong-man overtones.—The Editors “National Review

A number of elitist conservative pundits and politicians have pointed out, quite correctly, that Donald Trump is no conservative ideologue (nor is he a progressive ideologue, socialist ideologue, or “whatever” ideologue). 

Trump is a phenomenally successful businessman, a clear-eyed pragmatist and patriot who desires what works for “we the people” and the United States of America.  And how long has it been since America has had a leader like that?  Too long, much too long.
