The Gaslights Are Lit

The Democrats kicked off their year long process to select a party nominee for the 2020 presidential election and it felt like 2016 all over again. Instead of watching the debate, which would have been a horrible way to spend an evening, I scanned Twitter for reactions to get a feel for how enthusiasts were reacting in real time. This was something I did in the 2016 during the Republican debates. It turned out to be a much better gauge for how people were reacting than what was coming from the media.

Three things were fairly obvious, based on Twitter. One is the Democrat media was instructed to sell the hell out of Warren, which they tried hard to do, but Warren gave them little to work with after she read her prepared lines. What they are going to learn is what people in Massachusetts know about her. Like all pols, she can read from a script and seem quite good. On her own, she reveals herself to be quite dull. Her serious egghead presentation is just an act. She is a pseudo-intellectual poseur.

Another thing that was made obvious to enthusiasts is that Beto O’Rourke is just a slacker who has been getting by on his looks. The media likes him because he has the RFK routine down cold. He knows how to charm left-wing Baby Boomers. The trouble is, once you get past the horse teeth and hairstyle, you’re left with a guy who probably spends his free time reading comic books. He is in politics because it requires the least amount of effort for the best possible lifestyle. Otherwise, he is a bum.

The third thing that was obvious reading left-wing twitter is they could not stop noticing Tulsi Gabbard. The Democrat media was programmed to ignore her, so they will ignore her, but the lower ranking members, who don’t get to see the memos from the party, were noticing their hell out of Gabbard. She was the only candidate who said anything of substance picked up by the enthusiasts. The rest were judged on style. Gabbard was noticed because she made valid points about foreign policy.

Just as with the Republican Party, much of the Democratic base is largely ignored by the party. From this side of the political spectrum, it is hard to pick up on this problem, as white liberals do seem to obsess over trannies and foreigners. The truth is, the eventual winner of this primary will have to appeal to white middle and upper middle class voters. It’s why Creepy Joe Biden is the leader, despite being dead. His working-class Joe routine appeals to a very large segment of the Democratic base.

Forgotten in all the celebration of degeneracy is the large isolationism vote inside that white voting bloc. It is a peculiar form of isolationism, as it tarts itself up as sophisticated and realistic, but in reality it is people who would prefer it if America disengaged from the rest of the world and focused only on domestic issues. Gabbard, with her well thought out anti-war positions, is probably tapping into that vote. She may be the only candidate in the field that is explicitly anti-war and dovish.

She’s also skeptical of Israel, which is another factor that never gets discussed, but has always been under the surface on the Left. There was a time, not so long ago, when anti-Zionism was a popular stance on the Left. The party leaders may have been co-opted by the Israeli lobby, as has happened with the GOP, but that skepticism of Israel and support for the local Arabs remains in the rank and file. Gabbard makes no bones about being open minded with regards to our unconditional support for Israel.

Now, after these debates, it is a tradition for Matt Drudge to run a poll on his site. These polls are not scientific, of course, as if there is such a thing. The main flaw in these polls is you can vote a million times if you are that bored. They could filter out repeats based on IP address, but even so, there is no way to know if the people voting are Americans eligible to vote. Still, they say something about the enthusiasm for the candidates or lack of enthusiasm in the case of some. Gabbard won the poll going away.

Like 2016, where Trump would win these polls hands down, the party media is reporting an entirely different response. The Nation apparently wrote their reaction pieces in advance. Similarly, the Daily Kos followed party instructions and celebrated the sleepy night for Warren as a great triumph. The New York Times and the Washington Post are all aboard the Fake Indian Express as well. Everyone got the memo and they are busy trying to gaslight the Progressive voters into thinking Warren is the one.

Most likely, the media will just ignore Gabbard for now. They will no doubt have been told to celebrate Creepy Uncle Joe as the winner of the second debate. In case he sexually assaults one of the women on stage, they probably have been told to have some material on Harris ready. They have some sidebar pieces ready to tell the faithful that the homosexual is a rising star in the party. The point is to make sure Sanders gets no positive press from the debate. This time, he gets taken out early.

What we are seeing is something that does not get noticed on our side. That is, the Left is almost as angry about their politicians as normal people. Our side gets mad because the Republicans keep chasing the votes of people who hate them. Something similar happens on the Left. The old fashioned pro-working class types have no representation in the party. The foreign policy doves have no one addressing their issues. Those aging white ethnics, who supported Sanders last time, have no voice either.

If 2016 was the year Conservative Inc. finally cracked, 2020 could be the year Progressive Inc. has its crisis. Like the Republicans, the Democrats are a party that really only represents the foreign money that bankrolls its operations. They no longer speak for actual voters. Someone like Gabbard, who stands out from the crowd by nature, can tap into the resentment within the ranks, by simply mentioning the many taboos issues ignored by the rest of the field. She could be the Happa Trump.

For now, as we saw in 2016, the media will do what it can to gaslight the voters, by selling the cold turd sandwich that is Biden and Warren, while carefully ignoring anyone that the party fears. If the result of these preliminary rounds is rising support for Gabbard, we will see if the Progressive Industrial Complex really did learn from the 2016 debacle. The gaslights will be on full for the rest of the summer, as they use all the tools to get the result the oligarchs want from this election.

He may not be my tribe in numerous ways, but Yang is pretty cool. Check out his twitter feed during the debate. Funny guy. Best line:

“Oh no – technical difficulties. It’s the Russians.”

He’s funnier and smarter than Gabbard, but white Dems get no moral superiority dopamine hit from Asians so he’ll probably get shown the door. But he’s more Trump than Tulsi.

I’ve also seen tweets from Yang about anti-Asian sentiments of white people/institutions and other pozzed stuff. He’s received the brain-rotting inculcation, just like the rest of us, and doesn’t show signs of real world thinking outside of that pozzed viewpoint (anti-white). Maybe he even believes the poz? I mean, his parents are Baizuo from Taiwan, who are OK with anti-China politics, and perhaps also the other current sick American ideals of hating the white oppressors.

Ursula—and others—Yang on another interview I watched is not for “universal” UBI as it seems many folk tend to think. It would seem conditional upon other sources of Government largesse. IIR, when Yang was describing UBI sources of funding, most being “savings” from economic efficiency (we know what that means), he stated that SSI recipients are paid their SSI or the UBI, whatever is larger. There are also deductions for other government programs, but I don’t completely recall specifics.

Yang might be the perfect candidate to spur open pro-white politics. Coming out against an Asian for his antipathy toward whites is more palatable to most people than as against a black or Hispanic. Asians are almost-whites, but the racial element is still there to a certain extent. It might even be smart for right wingers to talk him up early on and then turn on him for being anti-white, red pills all over the place.

I like where the idea that government gibsmedat get subtracted out of UBI can lead.

I’m of this position regarding reparations:

This is a good line of thinking to use on persuadable normies.

Are you really and truly unable to grasp that the whole point and purpose of universal suffrage is to deprive the population of any and all political power?? If 10 men decide an election, then they have real power. If 200,000,000 decide an election, then NONE of them has power. NONE. That’s the whole point and purpose of expanding the franchise. That’s why the Jacobins now want to give the vote to 16-yr-olds. Wake up and smell the coffee!

I noticed in the comments that there’s a little side digression about Andrew Yang’s UBI proposal. It goes exactly as I have always said any UBI implementation would go. It’s barely more than an idea yet and the twits are already talking about groups of people (people on disability) who should get more than just the UBI — the UBI plus disability benefits. UBI is a guaranteed disaster.

The upside is, it will be short lived. The currently proposed UBI will cover my mortgage.

Apropos lawyers, I read a first-hand account of a conquistador who was with Cortes in Mexico. After they’d captured Mexico City, they appealed to the Spanish king for reinforcements to secure Spanish rule in New Spain. They wanted soldiers, priests, blacksmiths and so forth and specifically requested – twice – that the king didn’t send any lawyers as they caused strife and internecine violence.

Imagine the working class dad who’s family is living out of their car, seen some of those here in L.A. His paycheck’s taxes go to supporting those who don’t work in our country, don’t have any skills with which to build civilization, and don’t love our country’s builders (white people).

I have a dream that Tulsi Gabbard, in addition to her anti-war position, also decided to go with an immigration restriction stance. She could take up where the late Barbara Jordan (Democrat) left off back in the mid 90s, explaining low immigration as an issue that benefits working Americans and the poor. And since climate change is on top of all of these candidates’ lists, she’d be able to use immigration for that topic as well. She can take shots at big corporations and their need for lowering wages. She’s articulate and likable enough to sell it to the voters.… Read more »

Absolutely. It’s not Left vs Right or Small Govt vs Big Govt anymore. It’s Nationalists vs Globalists. A left winger that opposed immigration to protect the working class, wanted to reign in Wall Street and the oligarchs and wanted the United States to stop policing the work (i.e. stop being Israel’s lap dog) would pick up huge votes. It’s out there for the taking for a Dem.

Sanders was picking up on that vibe, but he didn’t take it where he needed, and he really old. A younger Dem could follow that path.

If the gov’t of a permanent 95% white country goes too far down the path of regulation, it can fix the problem. What to do about healthcare? Try different things until you find something that works. In a nation-state, you can always fix the problem, swing back and forth between laissez faire and regulation until you find the right balance. But once you screw up the demographics, you finished. I’m not that worried about right vs left because it’s nothing – NOTHING! – compared to demographics.… Read more »

I do agree that ethnicity decides the playing field. But whites are descended from people who collected, stored, and maintained their own pile of food through the winter. It is NOT WHITE to say the chief should be deciding who can gather what and put what food where. That is an equatorial, AFRICAN mindset. Whites only do socialism after a huge, population killing disaster– like a comet impact. And only when there might not actually be enough surviving daughters to mate with sons. I mean, the Icelanders went through a 200+ year period with NO GOVERNMENT AT ALL. Be like… Read more »

Economic organization is downstream from culture which is downstream from DNA. Have a 95% white country and you’ll eventually get your very limited government.

Look, I”m on your side. But economic discussions are simply pointless compared to getting the demographics right. Different groups will choose what works for them. Mixing groups causes problems because they’ll want different economic organizations.

No reason to hold out for positive immigration policy on the platform.

Despite his messiah-worshiping following in the mainstream media, hard-left democrats realized Obama was just another ClintonBush establishment stooge.

City refused to record “gas skips” as theft, rather they were now business transaction defaults and gas station owners were told to take the culprits to court and sue them. Of course, everyone has to pay in advance now for cash purchases. Similarly, most minor crime and car accidents are never written up by a sworn officer, but you can download the forms yourself and fill them out and send them… Read more »

I think they do define the murders away. The nationwide closure rate for murder dropped from over 90% to just over 60%. When close to 40% of the murders go unsolved, it drops the black murder rate. Cooking the books is how the cities have such low crime. The vast majority of crime is just never written down anywhere. Last summer there was a huge riot in my city and the police decided ‘we are not going to arrest our way out of this mess’ and didn’t arrest anyone. Instead, they capitulated to the demands and let everyone go home.… Read more »

I’d rather listen to fingernails on a chalkboard than listen to Elizabeth Warren’s voice.

PS to Z. Chrome red flags this site as extremely insecure. Very few sites I visit get this treatment.

That is, the Left is almost as angry about their politicians as normal people. Our side gets mad because the Republicans keep chasing the votes of people who hate them. Something similar happens on the Left. The old fashioned pro-working class types have no representation in the party. This is a very perceptive analysis and one that is being missed by most commentators. Here in Australia, it was precisely this block of voters that came over and gave the conservatives their recent unexpected victory. An astute right politician, or party, would seek to exploit this weakness to their advantage. What… Read more »

I thought Gabbard actually woefully underperformed. She looked like a deer in the headlights and kept clamoring about her military service like John Kasich reminding us his dad was a postal carrier. No one in the Democratic primary voting base cares about her service.

Why any sentient carbon based life form would waste their time watching the demokrat party debate truly escapes me.

Just a small observation that I think is highly symptomatic of why this is gonna crash before any course correctino: Tulsi Gabbard, a decently attractive woman, has not produced a single baby but is now vying for the ultimate alpha position. And she’s probably the best choice for it. That’s so biologically screwed up, on three counts. The West is a goner, b/c it is defying the real god, Darwin and that’s the sad truth.

Darwin being “the real god” is a big part of the problem.

You could say that, b/c it easily leads to the kind of nihilism that marxism feeds off. I didnt mean to step on any Christian toes by putting it like that but Christians too must recognize the important bottom line that what matters in the end is who, or rather who’s, will be around in 50 and 100 years.

Gabbard was on Tucker this evening and made a very good case for ending the useless wars. No wonder she got noticed.

Gaslight: we have ignition. Feel the Bern.
But reports of Joe Biden’s death are greatly exaggerated. That does NOT apply to his senility. Compare Hillary. (or given Veritas GOOebEL, Heil Hillary).
No more dead than Bernie this weekend.

I’m watching the livestream of debate 2 while I do some work. Kamala Harris is crushing Biden. He’s toast.

Buttgay is finished after tonight’s performance. So is Hickenlooper and Bennett.

Harris is going to be the ‘Rat candidate and she will have an excellent chance of winning the election. God help us all.

I’ve been predicting Harris for the win in 2020 for over a year. I think I’m going to wager a bit of money on her. If I win it might offset the inevitable tax increases I will incur with her as President.

It would be much easier for Trump to take apart these America hating loons if he could not so easily be framed as an Israel first president.

Israel has a wall. Where is our’s?
