Run, Bill, run!

Because the French/McMuffin debacle wasn’t embarrassing enough, the traitorous Trotskyite is considering the possibility of seeking even more humiliation in 2020:

Bill Kristol, the former editor-in-chief of The Weekly Standard, is considering challenging President Donald Trump in the 2020 Republican primary.

Kristol, who is consistently one of the most vocal anti-Trump Republicans, has been considering a run for months, a source familiar with Kristol’s thinking told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Kristol, who remains an editor-at-large for the Standard, said he has no plans to run but declined to rule it out when asked by TheDCNF.

“No plans to run. But I’m randomly in Boston today, and happen to have had lunch with someone who does a lot of work in New Hampshire,” Kristol wrote in an email. “As he’d say, ‘Ya nevah know.’”

The New Hampshire primary, the second electoral contest after the Iowa Caucuses, is a key hurdle in the presidential nominating process.

Kristol previously sparked 2020 rumors in March when he popped up in New Hampshire to speak at “a must-show event for potential presidential contenders,” as Inside Sources noted at the time.

While I would love to see Kristol the Younger repeatedly humiliated on a national stage, trying to argue his Israel First policies in public against the God-Emperor, even he is not quite that stupid. Captain Underoos, on the other hand, just might be.

Merkel’s CDU falling

More Germans have had enough of the worst Kanzler since Mr. Hitler.

Support for German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative bloc, trying to move beyond a bitter dispute over migrant policy that threatened the coalition, has fallen to its lowest level since 2006, a poll showed on Sunday.

The Emnid poll published in Bild am Sonntag showed Merkel’s Christian Democrats and their sister party, Bavaria’s Christian Social Union (CSU), down one percentage point at 29 percent. That compares with 33 percent in the September election.

The CSU faces a tough regional election in October with polls showing it could lose its absolute majority in Bavaria.

The Social Democrats (SPD), who share power with the conservatives in Merkel’s coalition, failed to capitalise on those losses, also falling one point to 18 percent.

The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) was unchanged at 15 percent while the Greens rose 2 points to 14 percent, their best showing this year, according to Bild am Sonntag.

Translation: AfD is probably at 20 percent already. Of course, the way in which the parties of Right and Left are willing to work together against the nationalists just serves to demonstrate that ideology does not run as deep as identity.

Once identity enters the picture, all politics is identity politics.

No deal, no problem

The British public is increasingly able to see past the pro-EU fearmongering:

Britain has nothing to fear from leaving the EU without a deal, leading Brexiteers declared last night.

After a weekend when Theresa May’s Chequers plan came under fire from Remainers and Leavers alike, a poll yesterday showed growing public support for walking away from the negotiations.

It found twice as many voters now back leaving the EU without a deal.

Remainers have long argued that the consequences of no deal would be catastrophic for the economy. But leading Brexiteers admitted yesterday that although it could be bumpy in the short term, Britain could thrive in the long run. Former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith said: ‘If we don’t have a trade deal with the EU then we simply trade on World Trade Organisation terms, which is how most countries trade with each other.

The ComRes poll for the Daily Mirror found 39 per cent think the Prime Minister ‘should accept a no-deal and the UK simply leave the EU’. Just 20 per cent want her to press on with the White Paper, which critics say is a ‘half in, half out’ Brexit.

Furthermore, not bothering with a deal will take the wind out of the sales of the traitorous Remain activists who claim that a second referendum to approve the deal would be necessary. It isn’t anyhow, but they wouldn’t even have a false justification to which they could appeal.

And given that Treasonous May just lost her TENTH minister, this one the Junior Defence Minister, how is it possible that she still hasn’t resigned herself? The Tories would do well to start the no-confidence process, because it is clear that no one except Herr Merkel has any confidence in her.

Trumpslide 2020 confirmed

Piers Morgan interviews his old pal, the God-Emperor:

Confirmed: He’ll run for a second term in 2020

There has been lots of rampant speculation as to whether Trump will run for President again. It was time to get a definitive answer.

‘Is there any doubt you’ll run again in 2020?’

‘Well you never know what happens with health and other things…’

‘You look fit.’

‘I feel good.’

‘I saw your menu for tonight, pretty healthy stuff… but 2020, are you going to run?’

‘Well I fully intend to. It seems like everybody wants me to.’

I suspect ‘everybody’ is bordering on fake news.

But there it was – official confirmation that Donald Trump will run again.

‘Do you see a Democrat who can possibly beat you?’ I asked.

‘No. I don’t see anybody. I know them all and I don’t see anybody.

‘So liberals could be facing not two more years of you but potentially six?’

‘They do not have the right candidate.’

There isn’t even a Democrat who can keep it close. Donald Trump is already the best U.S. President since the 19th Century and we haven’t seen anything yet. Six more years sounds good.

This is what desperation looks like

I wonder how many US intelligence agents Russia and China could indict?

Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for hacking offenses related to the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.

The 12, who are members of the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency, are accused of stealing usernames and passwords of volunteers in Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign, including its chairman John Podesta. They also allegedly hacked into the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, in an operation starting around March 2016.

The charges include conspiracy to commit an offense against the U.S., aggravated identity theft and conspiracy to launder money. They are accused of releasing the stolen emails on the web

This is bizarre. What on Earth could be the point of indicting foreign agents well out of the reach of US jurisdiction with petty crimes?

The announcement came only three days before President Donald Trump is to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer quickly called for Trump to cancel the summit, saying, “Glad-handing with Vladimir Putin on the heels of these indictments would be an insult to our democracy.”

Oh. They’re trying to break up the holy alliance between the God-Emperor and the Neo-Tsar.

The president we need

A conservative explains why he has come around on the God-Emperor in USA TODAY.

Over the years, my caricatures of Donald Trump have evolved but not as much as my opinion of him.

When Trump announced he was running for president, I admit that I didn’t take this millionaire, hotel magnate, reality TV show celebrity as a serious candidate. I doubted his ability to do the job. So I drew him as a clown. In fact, my cartoons were as critical of him as many of my liberal cartoonist friends.Trump identified the problems and fixes….

His political promises were simple, repeated often and easily remembered — build the wall, repeal and replace Obamacare, cut taxes, destroy the Islamic State group, renegotiate better trade deals and make America great again. So how in the world did Trump change my mind? He started keeping those promises….

There have been a few hiccups. Trump signed a budget bill that increased the national debt, which is now over $21 trillion. The Russia probe is still a cloud over his administration, and I don’t like trade wars.

But here’s the dominating reason I’ve changed my mind about Trump’s ability to lead: judges. I support his picks of Justice Neil Gorsuch, his new U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the host of conservative federal judges that Trump has gotten confirmed.

I shudder to think of the activist judges that a President Hillary Clinton would have picked.

In my opinion, Trump has had the most successful 18 months as president than any other I’ve ever drawn. So yes, I support his presidency.

I admit that I was wrong about Trump. He’s not a clown. He’s a businessman, entertainer, and now the president that I didn’t want but now think we need.

Just wait until this guy discovers that Russia is our greatest ally and the trade wars lead to full-employment and stronger economic growth than we’ve seen since the 1980s. He won’t merely declare Trump a great president, he’ll start drawing him as the God-Emperor and calling for a crown.

The British pound fell and U.K. politicians reeled Friday from the tornado-blast of U.S. President Donald Trump, who humiliated Prime Minister Theresa May, dashed hopes of a quick U.S.-U.K. trade deal and praised May’s opponents in the high-stakes battle over Brexit.

All in just 24 hours in Britain.

Trumpslide 2020, baby! All hail the God-Emperor!

Who bitch this is?

The President is wreaking havoc with his savage diplomacy in Londonistan:

THERESA May’s new soft Brexit blueprint would “kill” any future trade deal with the United States, Donald Trump warns today.

Mounting an extraordinary attack on the PM’s exit negotiation, the President also reveals she has ignored his advice on how to toughen up the troubled talks.

Instead he believes Mrs May has gone “the opposite way”, and he thinks the results have been “very unfortunate”.

His fiercest criticism came over the centrepiece of the PM’s new Brexit plan — which was unveiled in full yesterday.

It would stick to a common ­rulebook with Brussels on goods and agricultural produce in a bid to keep customs borders open with the EU.

But Mr Trump told The Sun: “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal….

Downing Street was left shell-shocked by the criticism.

Mrs May rushed out her own statement to hit back at the President’s claim.

It should be entertaining to see the treacherous May try to Love Actually her way out of that diplomatic steamrolling. She’s done and the God Emperor knows it.

And in more remarks that will set off alarm bells in No10, Mr Trump also said Mrs May’s nemesis Boris Johnson — who resigned over the soft Brexit blueprint on ­Monday — would “make a great Prime Minister”. 

He was on a serious roll:

Europe, he added, is ‘losing its culture’ because of mass migration and warned it will never be the same again unless leaders act quickly. ‘Look around,’ he said. ‘You go through certain areas that didn’t exist ten or 15 years ago.’ He added: ‘Allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame.’  

The Supreme Court nomination

This is an open thread to discuss it. Please stay on the subject of the Supreme Court Justice and the upcoming Trump nomination.

Donald Trump has decided who he’ll nominate to the Supreme Court, according to two people familiar with the matter, as the president prepares to make a prime-time announcement of a choice that could solidify conservative jurisprudence for years.

The people would not say who Trump had selected. One person suggested it would be one of two U.S. Appeals Court judges: Brett Kavanaugh of Washington or Thomas Hardiman of Pittsburgh.

Trump will reveal his choice during a televised event from the White House East Room at 9 p.m. New York time, after a short but intense build-up since Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement less than two weeks ago.

I’m with her

Her 2020 candidacy, anyhow. Hilary Clinton’s 2016 campaign was one of the most amusing I’ve ever seen. But I think a reprise would be even funnier.

The messages convey a sense of urgency, and are coming with increasing frequency. They are short, focused reactions to the latest “outrage” committed by President Trump.

Some end by asking for money, some urge participation in protests. All read as if they are sent from the official headquarters of the resistance.

Hillary Clinton is up to something.

Five times in the last month alone, she sent e-mails touting her super PAC’s role in combating President Trump. Most seized on headline events, such as the family-separation issue at the southern border…. And the day after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, Clinton introduced a newly minted resistance partner. Called Demand Justice, it promises to protect “reproductive rights, voting rights and access to health care” by keeping Senate Democrats united in opposing any conservative Trump nominee.

The instant, in-house nature of Demand Justice was reflected by the name of its executive director: Brian Fallon, Clinton’s campaign press secretary. In truth, Fallon’s role doesn’t tell us something we didn’t know. Onward Together, formed in May of 2017, is a Clinton 2020 campaign vehicle in waiting.

Run, Hilary, run! Do it for the glory of the God-Emperor! Don’t forget to check out the back.

Immigration has consequences

NN Taleb address the problem of migration:

What intellectuals don’t get about MIGRATION is the ethical notion of SYMMETRY: OPEN BORDERS work if and only if the number of pple who want to go from EU/US to Africa/LatinAmer equals Africans/Latin Amer who want to move to EU/US. Silver Rule in #SkinInTheGame Gabish?

Controlled immigration is based on the symmetry that someone brings in at least as much as he/she gets out. And the ethics of the immigrant is to defend the system as payback, not mess it up. Uncontrolled immigration has all the attributes of invasions.

As a Christian Lebanese, saw the nightmare of uncontrolled immigration of Palestinians which caused the the civil war. & as a part-time resident of N. Lebanon, I am seeing the effect of Syrian migration on the place. So I despise these virtue-signaling open-borders imbeciles.

Pat Buchanan observes that the Fourth Wave immigrants are pushing the Second and Third Wave immigrants out of power in the Democratic party.

Just as Crowley’s congressional district had changed, so, too, has his party in Congress. Columnist Dana Milbank, who sees it as progress, writes, “A majority of House Democrats are … women, people of color or gay.” These rising forces in the Democratic coalition are looking to bury the Democratic Party of yesterday, where white males and older ethnic groups — Irish, Italians, Poles and Jews — were dominant.

Ask yourself this: why were those older ethnic groups dominant in the Democratic Party in the first place? Why, it’s almost as if they were practicing… identity politics? Of course, John Locke described the entire process as well as the debate that surrounds it, right down to the ex post facto rationalizations, back in 1690, in his Second Treatise on Civil Government:

No damage, that men in the state of nature suffer from one another, can give a conqueror power to dispossess the posterity of the vanquished, and turn them out of that inheritance, which ought to be the possession of them and their descendants to all generations. The conqueror indeed will be apt to think himself master: and it is the very condition of the subdued not to be able to dispute their right.
