The left, being not terribly imaginative, always accuse you of what they’re doing themselves. So, in this case, President Trump is charged with interfering with the 2020 election by men who have been interfering with the 2016 and 2020 elections for over three-and-a-half years now. Which is why we have the preposterous spectacle of four Democrat presidential candidates preparing to vote to remove from office the guy they’re running against.

Rep. Jim Jordan: There are four key impeachment facts that Democrats cannot change “The Ukrainians didn’t even know at the time of the call that aid had been held and most importantly, they took no action. They never started an investigation, they never promised to start an investigation, they never announced an investigation, they took no action to get the aid released.

The reality is this is not a midterm election, and given the American people’s disgust at the Dems over this, as well as enthusiasm over Trump’s accomplishments including the greatest economic boom in American history, not only will the Senate remain in GOP hands but more than likely they will retake the House as the 30 or so freshman Dems from districts Trump took in 2016 who went along with Palsi von Poligrip on this kamikaze mission will be kicked to the curb and wonder what fell on them. Inshalla.

I’m beginning to believe that President Trump’s superpower is to drain the energy from his opponent’s dementia and transform it into bright days and upland pastures new while banking election gold. For someone who only ran for office once he seems to have a vast storehouse of ideas on how to be a winning politician; over and over and over again. Love him or hate him, you’ve never seen his like before. This is 4/D Politics.

“As a cultural event,I’m kinda proud of it.”

Disco Demolition Night in Cominsky Park: In the weeks before the event, Dahl invited his listeners to bring records they wanted to see destroyed to Comiskey Park. He feared that the promotion would fail to draw people to the ballpark and that he would be humiliated. The previous night’s attendance had been 15,520,and Comiskey Park had a capacity of 44,492. The White Sox were not having a good year and were 40 46 going into the July 12 doubleheader. The White Sox and WLUP hoped for a crowd of 20,000, and Mike Veeck hired enough security for 35,000.

Owner Bill Veeck was concerned the promotion might become a disaster and checked himself out of the hospital, where he had been undergoing tests.[19] His fears were substantiated when he saw the people walking towards the ballpark that afternoon; many carried signs that described disco in profane terms.

The doubleheader sold out, leaving at least 20,000 people outside the ballpark. Some leaped turnstiles, climbed fences, and entered through open windows.[20] The attendance was officially reported as 47,795, though Bill Veeck estimated that there were anywhere from 50,000 to 55,000 in the park—easily the largest crowd of his second stint as White Sox owner.[22] The Chicago Police Department closed off-ramps from the Dan Ryan Expressway near the stadium.[4] Attendees were supposed to deposit their records into a large box, some 4 by 6 by 5 feet (1.2 by 1.8 by 1.5 m) tall; once the box was overflowing, many people brought their discs to their seats.

It’s Sesame Instant Noodles time! (aka 대파 송송 계란 탁~ [[참깨라면 –or– “Green onion Song Tak”). The Mukbang Eating show is not really about cooking but, like it says, about eating; eating the whole hotpot with much slurping and smacking of the lips. The primary reason for the show is to watch food cooked and consumed in Korea by a nice young man and his mother (See the point around 7:50 when he politely offers his mom first go at a particularly tasty bit of kimchee.)

You laugh but this particular show has pulled more than three and a half million views in the last year. It’s also a reminder that different cultures have different customs when it comes to eating and politely expressing pleasure in your meal. This is an example of that but only kimchees were harmed in making it. Elsewhere on Youtube, there’s an eating show built around a whole roast camel courtesy of The Food (“Ooooooooooooooh!”) Ranger, but I’ll spare you that**. In the meantime, I think I know what I’ll be having for dinner.

Remodern Rises

Billy Childish: “Wading Out”

An excerpt from: Mid-Morning Art Thread: Postmodernism Is Dead. It’s The Remodern Era. [Richard Bledsoe*]

Enduring changes start in the arts. Today, around the world, people are rising up against governing class arrogance, incompetence, and treachery. This seismic global phenomenon was foretold by a grassroots art movement.

In 2000, two English painters, Charles Thomson and Billy Childish, codified what they called Remodernism, an insurgency against the manipulative and destructive Postmodern status quo. Remodernism acknowledges the purpose of art: an inclusive means of spiritual communion and connection. This inspiring message is particularly in sync with the values of the United States.

Remodernism is the latest iteration of the American character: ordinary people working as explorers and inventors, optimistic, self-reliant and productive. A Remodernist artist formulates expressions of personal liberty to convey higher meaning, personal growth, and connectivity.

Remodernism sees art as a conduit for shareable moments of beauty, enjoyment, comprehension, and truth. Assembling these elements together approaches a state of grace, the ultimate expression of the love bestowed on us by our Creator. We are called to follow His example.

The Left never expected a counter-attack to come from the arts. They thought they had successfully destroyed our legacies and stifled the wisdom of our traditions. However, the human instinct for art is stronger than the power games of a greedy and fraudulent ruling class.

The best thing is the Remodern means of attack is not by destruction, but by creation. We have out-evolved them. This is our moment in the mighty continuum of art and life. Remodernism accepts the responsibility for creating a new art for this dynamic era, art that accurately shows who we are, and what we can be.

The Patriot by the Park

Chico is a collapsed hybrid of a place. It’s too big to be a town and too small to be a city. It sports a standard California college with the standard complement of insane “Studies” professors, Chemtrails conspiracy whack jobs, gays, lugs, thugs bugs, and befuddled and brain-clouded students. Chico is also at the top of the vast central valley’s limitless riches of rice, almonds, olives and other global commodities that express themselves in town in hidden centimillionaires behind the orchard screens and billionaire rice families’ Haciendas hidden somewhere out in the inland sea of rice paddies.

The result is that there is a chain of in-town islands to be found out in the countryside (A Jamaican Jerk restaurant in a sea of Walnut orchards? Ya mon) and many outposts of the country inside the wire of the town. (Hay and feed store right on the main drag in downtown still thriving nicely thank you.) At the core of this odd place, running right through its middle,  is One-Mile.

One-Mile is the town swimming hole; or rather the town swimming creek. One-Mile is where Butte Creek was diverted decades ago so a concrete pen about twenty yards across and a hundred yards long was laid and a dam built at the downstream end. Then Butte Creek was un-diverted and, presto, a community swimming creek. The town/city grew up around it and around the vast land of Bidwell Park which currently comprises some 3,600 acres and is more than 11 miles long.

A vast park but the one part used most and seen most by most people living in and visiting Chico is One-Mile. If you’ve got a message you want to get to the most people in town, print flyers and distribute them at One-Mile. And across the street from One-Mile is where the Patriot has his home.

The Patriot has lived in his home for decades as the town grew up around it. The Patriot loves his home but even more than his home the Patriot loves his country. And the Patriot does not care who in the town, state, nation, or world knows it. The Patriot does not just wear his love for America on his sleeve, he wears it on his house.

In the many years I came to Chico before living here I’d note, from time to time, that the Patriot’s house was becoming more baroque. From a single flag pole with roses twined around the base, the Patriots’ American flags grew to multiple flag poles. As the Patriot became older lights were shown on the flags at night so he did not have to lower them.

At first, he’d cut out sections from the Declaration and the Constitution and laminate them and hang them from his fence as a kind of pedestrian tour of these documents. Then there were large quotes added from the heroes of America in war and peace; in poetry and song. All laminated to resist the rain and left to fade from the sun.

Over time the documents were joined by pictures of places like Mt. Rushmore and Gettysburg and Iwo Jima. These were joined by statues of heroes found in thrift shops. And then somehow the flags and the documents and the statues and pictures became some many and so varied that they all seemed to merge into one huge hymn from one man to his nation; one structure like Simon Rodia’s Watts Towers that revealed, unlike the blank everyday facades of the houses around him, the inner heart of this one man.

I saw the Patriot yesterday while walking in the park across from his home. He’s quite old now and in a walker attended by a companion. He came out of a side-door stooped over wearing one of those caps that show you the ship he served on. I think it was a submarine. He’s a small man made smaller now by age. He held a laminated sheet and made his way out of his yard and along his fence. To find a spot he had to make his slow way almost to end of his fence. Then he put it up and fastened it with wires and pliers to the chain link. Then he turned around and made his way back with his companion walking beside him.

In his yard, just before he went inside,  he paused at his first and still tallest flagpole to adjust the lights at its base so that even at night his flag would never be in darkness.

This is not a time for pessimism; this is a time for optimism. Fear and doubt is not a good thought process because this is a time for tremendous hope and joy and optimism and action.

But to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow, we must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse. They are the heirs of yesterday’s foolish fortune-tellers — and I have them and you have them, and we all have them, and they want to see us do badly, but we don’t let that happen. They predicted an overpopulation crisis in the 1960s, mass starvation in the ’70s, and an end of oil in the 1990s. These alarmists always demand the same thing: absolute power to dominate, transform, and control every aspect of our lives.

We will never let radical socialists destroy our economy, wreck our country, or eradicate our liberty. America will always be the proud, strong, and unyielding bastion of freedom.

In America, we understand what the pessimists refuse to see: that a growing and vibrant market economy focused on the future lifts the human spirit and excites creativity strong enough to overcome any challenge — any challenge by far.

The great scientific breakthroughs of the 20th century — from penicillin to high-yield wheat, to modern transportation, and breakthrough vaccines — have lifted living standards and saved billions of lives around the world. And we’re continuing to work on things that you’ll be hearing about in the near future that, even today, sitting here right now, you wouldn’t believe it’s possible that we have found the answers. You’ll be hearing about it. But we have found answers to things that people said would not be possible — certainly not in a very short period of time.

But the wonders of the last century will pale in comparison to what today’s young innovators will achieve because they are doing things that nobody thought even feasible to begin. We continue to embrace technology, not to shun it. When people are free to innovate, millions will live longer, happier, healthier lives.

Rant0matic: J.J. Sefton @ Ace types for me

SHAM-PEACHMENT FOLLIES As stated, even reliably left Gallup confirms America’s disgust with all of this, PDT’s legal team rips this entire debasement of the rule of law, Cocaine Mitch lays out the ground rules for a quick trial with no Democrat bullshit to be tolerated, to which Cuck Schemer went apeshit about, Jerry Nadless in absolute freakout mode over the potential for Hunter Bribem to be called as a witness and now suggesting no witnesses to prevent that catastrophe. You can smell the fear mingling with rancid pastrami emanating from his pores. Also, Sandersnista and Lizzy Wigwam swear they’ll be impartial (pfft), even squish David Perdue smacks around Cuck Todd for his hackery, Rabbi Fischer and Jeffrey Lord weigh in with their analyses and lastly what if Ruth Bader Meinhoff suddenly announces her retirement in the middle of all this? That plus an observation that the impeachment is merely a trial run at the Democrats impeaching all of Trump’s judicial picks. Considering that is traditionally where they get the lion’s share of their agenda rammed down our throats, that is why removing Trump and keeping him from being re-elected or at best, neutering his ability to appoint SCOTUS or other judges because of the taint of impeachment is the Democrat goal.

Filthy momzer traitors.

Sounds of the Nightmare Machine

The Guns Of Resistance |    You’ll note that there is no longer any discussion of crime on the Left with regards to gun-grabbing. Even they have accepted the fact that gun crime is largely a black problem and now a Hispanic problem. Blacks and Hispanics shoot one another with handguns, not expensive sporting rifles. Despite this, the victims of these gun-grabbing proposals would rather gnaw off their own arms than admit it. Generations of conditioning in anti-racism have had their desired effect.

Make no mistake about the intent. The newly formed ruling class of the multicultural South and Southwest will first disarm the white population. They don’t care about blacks and Hispanics shooting one another. They do hate white people. That’s why Virginia wants to forbid the private transfer of firearms. That’s the obnoxiously dishonest ‘gun show loophole’ nonsense. It is the precursor to licensing and then confiscation. When every gun is accounted for, they can easily be confiscated.

Who knew? African Man Find Out His Wife of Two Weeks Is Actually a Man “He had a sweet soft voice and walked like a woman,” Kibunga said, adding that he had heard Mutumba complain that four days after the wedding his new bride refused to take her clothes off while they slept. When she was out of the house, Nabukeera always wore a hijab or a traditional gomesi dress, which didn’t raise any suspicion. She also performed all her usual duties, like cooking, cleaning and doing the laundry, so her husband didn’t suspect a thing.

Under Trump, America May Be Its Strongest Since the End of World War II    Not only are we stronger, our adversaries and competitors are mostly weaker. China is fractured and may crack permanently as Hong Kong and Taiwan reject its communist rule. Those two tiny offshoots are like water freezing in a crack in cement: The ice in the crack can break the block. Russia is increasingly unstable, and Putin’s move to solidify his grip on power may turn out to be the beginning of the slow-motion end for him.

Meghan Markel’s Dad on #Megxit: She’s ‘Turning Royal Family Into Walmart With a Crown’   Thomas Markle,  who has been ghosted by Meghan, probably because of stuff like this, says the way in which his daughter and Harry have dumped the royals has “cheapened” the family:

“[T]hey are destroying it, they are cheapening it, making it shabby. They’re turning it into Walmart with a crown on it. It’s something that’s ridiculous. They shouldn’t be doing this. She got every girl’s dream. Every girl wanted to become a princess and she got that and now she’s tossing that away – it looks like she’s tossing that away for money. Apparently $3 million and 26 bedroom house isn’t enough for them.

Speech from the Ginger Formerly Known as Prince

At long last, I am able to say a few words of my own because my dominatrix has gone to the Lady’s Room with RuPaul. I have never wanted to withhold my essence, but until now it has not been possible for me to speak with my testicles in Megan’s lockedbox.

A few hours ago I discharged my last duty as Prince, and now that I have finally taken a cast-iron strap-on by my dominatrix, my first words must be to declare my allegiance to her Steely Dan. This I do with all my heart.

You all know the reasons which have impelled me to renounce my title formerly known as Prince. But I want you to understand that in making up my mind I did not forget the country or the empire from which, as Prince, I have for all my life a parasite always taken the multi-million-pound annual handout.

But you must believe me when I tell you that I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of grifting and to discharge my duties as the ginger known as Prince as I would wish to do without the whips chains discipline and Steely Dan from the dominatrix I love.

I now quit altogether public affairs and I lay down my burden of living fabulously on the tax-rolls and inherited wealth. It may be some time — maybe forever —  before I return to my native land, and we’re not, she who must be obeyed informs me, never ever going to be in the United States as long as the bad orange man rules there, but I shall always help my dominatrix of the snapping turtle hoover up fortunes in dildo endorsements.

Signed,

Harry the Red-Haired Windsor, Formerly known as Prince

Something Wonderful: Trump and the Team

From Tigers at the White House on Power Line

The national champion LSU Tigers–I would say, the unbelievably talented LSU Tigers–visited the White House on Friday. Star wide receiver JaMarr Chase tweeted this; I know about it because it is all over Twitter, with 104,000 likes and 22,000 retweets, and one of my daughters pointed it out:

I think President Trump will do shockingly well with black voters in November–shocking, that is, to people who haven’t been paying attention and only listen to ethnic “leaders.” Trump’s policies have delivered for African-Americans in a way we haven’t seen since the Reagan administration, and Trump personally relates well to blacks. I hope he will work hard to solidify that advantage over the next ten month
