Election Narrative Update

Note: If you are looking for a way to do some good within the parameters of the system, then take a look at the Free Expression Foundation. This is what civil liberties groups are supposed to be doing, which is defending the rights of citizens. The organization is run by a stand-up guy who believes in the mission. They have volunteers, but fighting cases in court requires money, so consider a donation.


The next Republican debate is scheduled for this coming Thursday at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley California. According to state media, the same cast of characters is expected to perform at this event, with the exception of Asa Hutchinson and Doug Burgum, who they forgot to invite. Why this is being held in California is a mystery, as there is no chance a Republican will every win the state. For all anyone knows or cares, there is no Republican Party in California.

Putting that aside, the pre-coverage of this debate shows us that the narrative for the 2024 election is running into serious trouble on the GOP side. The script said that at this point, Trump would be out of the race due to the indictments. The party would have swung behind one of the zombies to stop Ron DeSantis, who would be desperately swimming to the “middle” in order to maintain donor support. Instead, Trump now looms over the whole thing like Godzilla attacking Tokyo.

The main flaw in the narrative was assuming that Trump’s support would collapse after the string of indictments. Because the people behind this stuff are lizard people from an alien planet, they have no way to read public sentiment. They are left to imagine how humans would react under certain conditions. Apparently one of their texts on humans said that humans naturally flee when the bad guys attack their champion for the crime of fighting back against the bad guys.

Regime media is now floating stories like this one in which various toadies wonder why their great plan failed to work. One of the lessons of the Ukraine war is that these sorts of stories appear when the regime finally comes to realize that their current narrative is no longer operational. It is something like the stages of grief. They are now in the acceptance phase of narrative collapse. Next is the bargaining phase where they search for something positive from the situation.

Another problem with the narrative is that Ron DeSantis was not able to play his role as the acceptable alternative to Trump. You may hate Trump with the intensity of a thousand suns, but it does not change the fact that he is the best street fighter the Republican Party has seen since Lee Atwater. He saw right away that DeSantis was a stalking horse, so he unleashed his supporters on him. As a result DeSantis has been dying a death of a thousand cuts.

One part of the narrative has held together. The script called for the great zombie army that is Conservative Inc. to rally to the banner of an approved option. After some fits and starts, they have managed to get this right. The one thing that you can always count on is for conservatives to do what the Left tells them to do. Nikki Haley is now the regime option in the race. She has broken double digits in Iowa, which is probably her high water mark, but that will be enough to make her the favorite.

That is the reason to watch the Thursday debate. Since Neocon Nikki has been anointed as the regime favorite, it means DeSantis has to go after her in order to revive interest in his campaign. Given how poorly he has done to this point, it is a lock that he does not do this and instead attacks Ramaswamy again. For his part, the King Cobra should be ready for Neocon Nikki to use him as a foil. Expect him to arrive wearing garlic as that is how you keep the neocon at bay.

Ramaswamy has turned out to be an enormous problem for the regime as he is a black swan in this story. According to official dogma, it is impossible for a brown person with an elite education to sound like Trump. Not only does Ramaswamy sound like Trump, he makes better arguments than Trump and he is willing to stake out positions that Trump is afraid to take, which are popular with normal people. They do not know what to do with him, so they will fling their poo at him.

Of course, they are falling for one of the classic blunders. The most famous is to never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well known is this; never get involved in a poo flinging contest with an Indian. Ramaswamy has figured out that the race issue is losing its effectiveness with voters. That and it strikes people as ridiculous to call him a white supremacist. This gives him room to be the explicitly pro-white candidate while not being white.

With the narrative collapsing, the question shifts to what is next. The polling shows Trump is locked in as the overwhelming favorite in the early contests. What we know from 2016 is that Trump always does better than the polls, so it is fair to assume he will win handily if nothing changes. The script calls for the removal of Trump from the ballot, for the good of the country, so they can always play that card. Otherwise, they have to craft a new narrative to prevent the apocalypse.

The natural fallback position would be to put a pillow of Biden’s face and find a younger more plausible option for the other side. Gavin Newsom was the obvious choice, but he has removed himself from consideration. Presumably they threatened to charge him with raping people decades ago. That leaves no one. Given Biden’s declining ability to speak in public, we could end up with a general election where Trump campaigns in front of huge rallies and Biden does not campaign at all.

The ultimate fallback position, of course, is a rerun of 2020. This time Biden will top his eighty million votes in Pennsylvania alone. They have gone to a system of automatic voting that lets you avoid the hassle of filling out your ballot. This is a great benefit to the dead, who find this to be a big challenge. All joking aside, the lesson of 2020 is they can rig the election and get away with it, so the ultimate solution to narrative collapse is not who votes but who counts the votes.

Three factors explain the total collapse of the Republican party in California: 1) The replacement of the closed primary for partisan office with the “top two” format, in which all voters may participate and the top two vote getters are considered “voter nominated” and advance to the general election. In most instances, those are both Democrats. When everyone can vote for every office, there’s no need to declare a party affiliation any more. The only party office elected at the primary is member of the party’s county central committee, for which party affiliation is understandably required, but like–who really cares?… Read more »

The old school Orange County conservatives I know bailed for Florida over 20 years ago. They could see which way the wind was blowing

Florida’s election results in 2020 and 2022 indicate the majority of the new arrivals are conservatives/grillers fleeing blue states. That probably keeps Florida red for another 10-20 years until the great boomer die off

As Z mentions, Trump always “overperforms” his poll numbers. On election night 2020, until the code red was called, he’d more than closed the margin on what was universally predicted to be a 10+ point Biden win. Like the televised military coup that soon followed, nobody remembers this. Elections don’t matter, but the gap between known facts about them and what’s said about them does, because it reveals the regime mind. Relatedly, everyone who considers Trump an enemy, even /ourguys/, lies about him. Why is this necessary? How is the truth not enough? “He’s a cultural homosexual and prioritizes that… Read more »

Merely with his relatively inconsequential promotion stonewall, Tuberville has demonstrated more willingness to buck the system than Trump ever did

There’s been lots of talk that McConnell kept Trump in line with repeated threats of impeachment. I bet Trump sure is glad now that he caved rather than call that bluff. But it underscores Trump’s problem: He cares more about being president than he does about getting anything done as president. He ended up being like every other politician, just with different talking points.

The most destabilizing scenario is as follows:

2) Trump still handily wins the primaries.
3) Trump campaigns from jail like something right out of a third world country (which we are). Trump turns it into something out of Johnny Cash live from Folsom Prison, becoming “a legit gangsta” to the Jack-n-coke drinking peons.
4) The election is rigged like 2020 on steroids. It’s apparent that Trump won to all but partisans.

There will be a person forthcoming from the Democrat Party that is unknown but will be “the one.” This will fit perfectly into their modus operandi. They will bank on the fact that our “social media” culture is waking each day looking for the new savior and eager to accept this person. And by the time of the unveiling, there won’t be sufficient time left to attack, dig up dirt, etc. on this candidate prior to the installation.

Several of my neighbors are Japanese, the only “good” (Euro-compatible) Asians. The rare yard sign is always for a different kind of Asian who’s ethically hostile to them. In present America they’re allies—increasingly with blacks and hispanics—against the rest of us. The last few decades’ push for an American pan-Asianism didn’t work out, mostly because Indians are repulsive to everyone, but the next-iteration “Global Majority” talk, because it’s in the language of conquest, is doing its job.

One dirty little (not so) secret is class size bemoaning. Teachers just can’t teach class sizes over 30, so instruction suffers and more, smaller, classes must be made.

I still have my Catholic school grade school class pictures. My class had 48 students! I never was in a class that wasn’t packed. Now I admit the environment was different. The nuns would tolerate no shenanigans. We sat and paid attention. We were all White.

Increased public school costs against decreasing achievement is just another gift of DIE, but the point remains achievement is *not* a product of small class size.

Another fraudulent election carries huge risks for them though. Already, a majority of Republicans — despite the best efforts of the media/academy/Democrats (but I repeat myself) — believe the 2020 election was fraudulent (because it was).

Having ALL Republicans and even some Democrat voters (meaning the WASPS who are still with the Party) believing elections are completely fraudulent presents a real danger for them.

If close or more than 50% of the nation believe this is a banana republic, what remains of civil society erodes completely. Good luck with that. They need the normies quiescent.

Whitmer is such a vicious harpy she makes Nikki outright pleasant. She is not a prime time person and will flounder worse than Desantis.

Even for dems, you need some star appeal to make it. Whitmer is basically your obnoxious aunt.

My current picks:

Dems: Gov. “I’m not running for President” Newsom
Reps: Pence, a good errand boy, solid Swamp connections, not likely to rock the boat.

Trump and RFK Jr. run as independents, between them taking a substantial portion of the vote (a third, maybe).

2024 is gonna be lit. We’re screwd in any event, but at least it’ll be entertaining.

ZMan: “They are left to imagine how humans would react under certain conditions”.
That one pithy sentence says a whole lot about the RepubElite and their detachment from reality problem.
One solution to said problem would be for them to summon up from his secret lair that all knowing swami and soothsayer – Karl Rove, who along with his little tablet & magic marker can diagram just how team R can win the sweepstakes for ruler of AINO (or better yet come in a close, but respectable 2nd place).

The debate is in California becuse it’s at the Shrine of St. Ron. Conservatives hold conferences there. It’s a beautiful ranch up in the mountains northwest of L.A. Visit it if you’re in the area. The shrine includes the highlights of his life. One is a display of his “appointing the first woman to the Supreme Court, Sandra Day O’Connor,” with a manniquin of her. Never mind she betrayed him and the Constituiton, for example upholding Roe v. Wade, reducing property rights in the Hawaii case and limiting the death penalty.

“the SPR is dry”

The ONLY reason even the feckless and pathetic GOP didn’t wipe out the Democrats in 2022 was because Biden tapped the SPR and gas prices dropped. People vastly underestimate how much fuel prices determine political results. I saw this referenced very little in the post-mortems, possibly because the talking dolls on the tube are retarded. Of course, fortification of even local elections may make dissatisfaction irrelevant.

Newsom knows he only has to wait for five more years. He is in his mid 50s and in good shape, and he will be a shoo-in for 2028. No need to be part of the pot stirring this time.

Funny stuff. To the degree the election is of any interest at all, it appears that outside of the Republican Party’s role as a faux opposition party, GOP establishment positions may have support only in the single digits. It would be interesting to see what percentage of the populace would support fully dismantling the United States government at this point. I doubt it is a majority yet but it may be north of a third. Regardless, lowering marginal tax rates is not going to send chills down the spines of Americans, and election theft will be met with rolled eyes.… Read more »

I don’t think they can succeed, because they hate themselves as much as they hate us for getting closer to the divine through science and exploration than they ever came.

Indians were then (and are now) clogging their rivers with bodies and their streets with feces. They can destroy us, sure, but once self-hatred projected outward annihilates its target, it’s left with nothing but the self to destroy. Then again, who knows?
