Time for the Conservative Wahoo Blog to Take a Little Rest

Folks, posting is going to be sporadic here on the blog for the foreseeable future, although I am going to leave it "live" and active so that you can continue to have access to past posts. I'm cutting down on social media and dedicating myself more to my paid vocation.

Because I do not want the blog to become unduly associated with the views of the other contributing blogger (The Hammer), I've removed his access to post. Hammer once had a separate blog of his own, and I hope he'll post the URL in the comment section and that those of you who enjoy reading him can follow him there.

Thank you for staying with us this long.

I Have a Theory

If you know me and have listened to my BS for five minutes, you know I have certain life theories. To name but a few; never EVER have sex on a motorcycle (moving or otherwise), never sneak a peek into the kitchen of a Chinese takeaway, UFOs are real and aliens walk among us (not just Mexkins) and a good few of our Republicans (for some perverse reason) enjoy calling themselves conservative when they have more in common with Nancy Pelosi.

An excellent example is our own Cryin' Johnny Boner (fake conservative not space alien, although that's possible). The original politician du orange assures us Obamacare ain't going nowhere, it just needs a few tweaks he sobbed. This is I think, not so coincidentally the same message our Soros funded rent-a-mobs are expressing at Republican town halls across the country. Maybe our chain-smoking, crying drunk of an ex-Speaker knows something we don't. After all he has his handpicked boy running the show (a worshiper at the alter of Kemp, another "conservative"). So if he indeed is right, after all the struggling we real conservatives did, after all the lies we were told by BOTH parties, Boner will have played a major role in the destruction of the Republican Party as we know it. Some legacy he'll have.

Plus his legacy will be ours. Make no mistake, if we blow this chance there will be no rebuilding of anything. And just to be clear, that is the theory isn't it, to quietly work with the Democrats to undermine Trump's presidency and then when The Donald crashes and burns pick up the pieces and rebuild IN OUR OWN MODERATE IMAGE?

Attention #nevertrumpers, those of you who ARE NOT liberals in conservative guise, I say this as a friend and with all humility (well as much as I can muster anyway) STOP the fantasies. Never gonna happen. You saw what Trump can do. He brought out blue-collar voters like no one since the beloved (God rest his sainted soul) Ronald Reagan. If anything is certain in this life it's that moderate Republicans cannot beat a Democrat. So what on Earth would make you believe you can piss-off MOST of your base and win anything ever again? Leave the Bill Kristols behind. They are not our friends. Their agenda is not ours.

Take a look at CPAC. Hear the message. Trump is NOT our enemy. Indeed at this point he is our only hope and the facts bear me out. So far DJT has conducted the affairs of the Executive in a straightforward, conservative fashion. He is returning to federalism. He is cutting spending ($12 billion this month alone). He is focused on our security and jobs. His cabinet rates a 90+ percent from CPAC-ACU. He has nominated a SCOTUS replacement for Scalia just as brilliant and just as conservative. There is NOTHING Trump has done that would give a true conservative apprehension or pause. Even CW said he would happily work with Trump in whatever capacity the administration saw fit (I hear there's an opening for a defense attache in Port Moresby). So let's all get on board, set our hurt feelings and old grudges aside and take the fight to the REAL enemy! We've got a lot of work to do and we need everybody in the game if we're to win, and that ain't no theory.

The Elites Strikes Back

The Donald is running up against the stark reality that is Washington, DC. It's never a good idea to piss off too many people at one time, but those were the circumstances of his election. He threw down the challenge and squared off with the cesspool of American politics, and now he's gonna have to back it up. If Trump HAD NOT gone after the elites, had he run a traditional campaign, is there any doubt we would have HRC as out President?

We all know no one ever gives up power willingly and certainly not the globalist elite. Plus it's not even a power thing, it's a defense thing. Fear is the primary motivator. Right now just about every political faction, group and entity inside the insulated confines of our nation's Capital (and the world) hates and FEARS Donald Trump. They see his success as their vulnerability. They are well aware half this country would see them in hell given the chance, and they are running scared. Hence the lies...the lies.

I don't want to get all PBS on you, but The Donald reminds me a lot of Julius Caesar. Just like Caesar, Trump has the love of the people to the detestation of the elites. I think we all remember how that turned out for old JC. But chew on this my Beltway buddies, Julius Caesar was murdered in 44 BC. Less than two years later all the main conspirators, Cicero, Cassius and Brutus were dead as hell and Caesar's adopted son was Emperor...for over 40 years. Think Augustus got some payback maybe?

The forces of history demand a Donald Trump. If not him then somebody else. Our current "system" of ignoring the will of the people, the Constitution and our laws is untenable, and 'we the people' are on the case. So do your best GOPe and leftists of this variety or that. The only question remaining is what price you will eventually pay for the mischief you create now. It's just a matter of time.

Actually, THIS is War

Hammer's latest piece dips into the inkwell of comparing the facile (in this case, partisan politics) to war. In an attempt to remind readers of the differences, Some examples of war are included below.

This, on  the other hand, is most assuredly NOT war.

See how that works?

The War Rages

What a three weeks huh? I hope you're all doing well, but I'm curious, how would you describe your political mood these days? Shock, dismay, disgust, outrage or optimistic and encouraged... what exactly? I'm VERY optimistic but also a little outraged, but only just a little. My outrage is directed at the Democrats of course and even more their lapdog Republicans. The left is still in the midst of their Soros funded national hissy fit and my guess is it won't subside for at least another six months or so, but it eventually will. They needed just one more election to solidify their gains to the point of no return and they can't believe they got THIS CLOSE! The pain (and panic) is almost overwhelming. From the conservative perspective the great philosophers tell us now is the time to harass our enemies, keep them agitated, angry and distracted. I think Trump is following this tried and true stratagem to a tee, but not so our Congressional leaders. I wonder why? The answer is they are part of our lapdog problem.

Did you see that the judge in Washington state who stayed Trump's immigration restrictions is a Bush appointee? Of course you did, the press screamed it from the heavens. You may not recall his name but I guarantee MOST of you know he was a Bush appointee. The media wants you thinking this man is a completely dispassionate jurist with absolutely no political ax to grind. Of course nothing could be further from the truth. This chuckle-head was a Patty Murray gift appointee by GWB and as SJW as they come. Ordinarily I would say something like how many times does it take for us to learn(?), but Trump's accession has shown us we aren't 'us' anymore, in fact never were. Half of 'us' have proven to be 'them'. Tell me, have you seen our Congressional leaders come forth defending the President? Neither have I. Mitch 'the Bitch' McConnell said just the other day (I paraphrase) "Hey man, I don't even know the guy ok? What he does is his bidnez, I'm just trying to run a Senate here'. To which Chuck Schumer replied "Thanks bro".

I keep telling myself Reagan ran into the same establishment crap but that's not really true. Yes indeed Reagan was hated by the Rockefeller wing of the party. Yes they tried to undermine him and yes they sometimes colluded with the Democrats to derail his agenda. That's all true. But it's a different world now. There can be policy differences and there always are. You may be opposed to this and I may be opposed to that. Thoughtful disagreement is understood, we all accept that. But what I'm seeing is not thoughtful, respectful or reasonable disagreement. This is not about policy, this is about expunging "the other".

For example the media doesn't even bother to deny their bias, in fact they write stories defending it. Did I say bias? I meant their open hostility. According to the NY Times if we support real border security we are xenophobic white nationalists no better than NAZIs. If we want to repeal Obamacare we are engaging in genocide against the poor and needy. If we oppose the wanton slaughter of the unborn we are no better than the Taliban wishing to brutally subjugate women. If we think denying grown men, with intact male genitalia, the 'right' to choose whatever bathroom suits their whim, then we are homophobic bigots. The advancement of these kinds of narratives are not designed to persuade, but to immediately intimidate and ultimately destroy.

This is the world we live in as created by progressives and their browbeaten, Stockholm Syndrome suffering GOPe chumps. It is not THEIR world however. Their world is different. In establishment-world they have the master key to all the locks, the teacher's edition textbook and a backstage pass to everything under the sun. They and only they are in control and they and only they dole out the goodies. They manipulate, lie, cheat and steal with impunity. They are a shadow system of parasites controlling our society like a 50's alien body-snatcher sci-fi-film. The law, the Constitution, everything our founders tried to create is just a show, the 'public face' of our democratic republic which every insider knows is total bullshit. For the chosen rules don't apply. The admission ticket to their world is money, power and loyalty. Not everybody gets in and the most dangerous (and pathetic) among us are the aspirants. But if one does manage acceptance, they are henceforth deemed made-men (in the mafia sense) and that's that. Members never want for anything...ever. Once in, to be ejected one must do something extraordinarily bad. The reality is what we have witnessed for the past 18 months is the black-balling of a member, Donald Trump. Take a wild guess as to what his transgression might be.

I say this here and now, regardless of how successful Trump's Presidency may be, he is an enemy of the powers-that-be and they will not rest until he is destroyed. This is war and there can be only one winner, the American Republic or the elites who control it. It is literally us vs. them.  I do not wish to be overly dramatic but we must all choose a side. We stand with either those who believe in freedom and democracy or those who wish to live off the facade of freedom and democracy to keep us forever divided, afraid and dispossessed. Look around you. Look at what they've done to us. Look at how they've treated us. Look at how they live and how they demand we live. Now is the time, you're either in or out, for us or against us. There is no middle ground.

The Australian Affair

Solid reporting out this morning about a testy phone call between President Trump and Australian Prime Minister Turnbull. Jake Tapper and his team have a report about it here. A couple of things:

1) The agreement to vet 1250 people and potentially admit them to the United States was made by the previous administration. It is important in foreign relations that we can be seen as trustworthy. President Trump's election--contrary to what may be felt by his supporters--was not a blank check to walk away from previous deals.

2) The agreement in question is with an steadfast ally, a nation who has been there with the US in every major conflict in recent memory, and who will serve as a great anchor of our policy to ensure China does not achieve its goal of dominating East Asia. This isn't the Iran Deal, made with a regime openly hostile to us.

3) I am hopeful that President Trump will leverage his deal-making skills to the benefit of American foreign policy. But leveraging a roofing contractor and dealing with the head of a sovereign state are two very different undertakings. Trump has made it clear that he intends to deal more directly with China in the Far East, and doing so will require steadfast friends and allies. Hopefully, his phone call is taken next time he rings.
