Ouch! And Don't Expect This To End Soon

I know--there's lots more of this out there. This also has ramifications for the GOP in 2024.


Julie Kelly:


Everyone will be piling on--and why not? Plenty of good material:

  1. Any reports if they were able to grab the Hunter artwork off the walls as they were leaving?

  2. It is a target rich environment.

  3. But then you have Robert Gates (of Biden): "He's been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades." It thus makes some sense that Joe would be a favorite among the defense and diplomacy establishments - after all they share a common track record.

    1. I am one who remembers all of Biden’s vaunted decades in the Senate. Not very bright. Very self-regarding. He and Teddy and Chris Dodd thought they were real studs. And he was mean. Vicious. A punisher. Making up for his own insecurities, he loved to put down those who appeared before the Senate Judicial Committee when he was chairman. ‘Annihilate' would be more accurate than ‘put down’. I cannot think of one admirable quality.

  4. List includes Richard Armitage, who outed Valerie Plane and allowed Scooter Libbie to be convicted.

    I wonder what’s the next embarrassment for the US?

  5. Look, as far as I'm concerned, I am rooting for just about any and every embarrassment and setback as long as this Regime is in power. I don't want a single good American to die or be wounded in the cause of this usurpation. Better they resign and face "dishonorable" discharge as it will be a badge of honor to go and dishonor to stay. I am rooting for economic collapse; for monetary meltdown; for hyperinflation. Anything that deprives these monsters of power and control. We're Americans. We can survive any hardship together. A Depression, a sneak attack, a world war. What we can't survive is the slow boil of our liberties and rights and our national identity. Kndr

    1. Normally I would consider this sentiment as 'cutting off your nose to spite your face.'

      But America is hosed if there isn't a reckoning sufficient to drive the establishment from power.

      But as long as Kentucky conservatives can be persuaded to vote for the likes of Mitch McConnell America is well and truly hosed.

    2. Indeed.

      The way I have been thinking about it in my mind is that 1-this is only nominally, or in name only, the republic we once knew anyway - as I would never cheer for "America's" defeat. and 2-it is not born of any desire to see suffering, which will almost certainly be visited upon me and my family as much as any other...

      rather, it is to accelerate the possibility of a return to normalcy. IMO, that return is no longer viable using traditional political means, and the country remains very heavily in the delusional fog of its former empire.

      Nothing but radical, brutal, and successive blows to the head will bring it back from the point of complete delusion at this point.

      Tough place to be in.

    3. Yes, the blows have to come heavy and hard for it to sink in.

      I will no longer vote Republican for the sake of it.

      From now on its America First candidates or radical left. I want the crisis to come as fast as possible while there are still people alive who remember liberty.

      But even then I consider that our prospects are dim.

  6. Saw the photo from the crack WH staff where Biden is sitting in a room in Camp David and on video with the CIA, Naval Observatory, Central Command, and Doha. Saw a funny mocked up version with a shirtless Hunter in a hotel room smoking on the same video conference with the caption "Hunter". Funny as hell. Think it was on SWC's substack twitter feed. Wish I could share it.

  7. There was one with ice cream selections and one with the creepy girl from the movie "The Ring". Lots of dark humor emitting forth. I don't think it is possible to mock this president enough- he has to go, even if that means President Harris.

    1. Re Prez Harris, they're between a rock and a hard place. She'd be an unhideable disaster, but it would also mean giving up the tiebreaker vote in the senate--GOP could simply vote against a replacement VP. 50/50 = no VP to be prez of senate.

    2. technically the DNC could hang Nancy over their heads as an alternative to no veep. But I would never put faith in the Mitt/Collins et al crew to hold tight anyway.

      IMO there is little reason for Biden to go - he is serving his purpose quite well, which is to be a figurehead that assumes all risk and blame for a bunch of dirty tasks the deep state wanted to get finished anyway.

  8. Maybe an even better pic would be the one of Hunter dozed off with the crack pipe hanging out of his mouth.

  9. OT but in case anyone's interested, the story of the Central Park dog walker who went viral for calling the police on a black birdwatcher last year

    The Real Story of “The Central Park Karen”, podcast with Bari Weiss showing how easily the mob took control and now the woman has no job, is in hiding, was charged with making a false police report, and lost her dog for a while.

    BTW, the DA charged her even though the birdwatcher guy refused to press charges, although eventually charges were dropped.

    Short version - lots of blame on the birdwatcher's part.

  10. One more thing. Biden will make "heads roll"; and pass the blame to others. Could be firings too. Would love to see Jake Sullivan (Nat'l Sec Advisor) lose his job. Sullivan was on yesterday blaming Biden. LOL.

  11. Meanwhile here is an excellent article by Roger Kimball - it should be must reading for those who always seem to think the President Trump could have done more… In it, Kimball lists some of his accomplishments for those who were not paying attention:
