The Republican Party Is A Farce

Government, Healthcare, Politics, Republicans

As for the Republican Party: It’s a failure, a farce; it has been for … a very long time. Has the GOP (Grand Old Party) ever reversed a single New Deal or Great-Society welfare program? (I’m all ears.) Has it even slowed the growth and reach of Leviathan? Au contraire.

Despite being currently in control of 3 branches of government, members have failed to repeal the onerous parts of Zero Care. “It’s time to move on,” noodled Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who does not have a deductible of thousands of dollars before HIS own healthcare coverage kicks in.

If Only Trump Had Russia Expert Stephen Cohen Speak For Him

Witnessed today, explains Stephen Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies at Princeton University, is “A new detente, anti-cold war partnership between Presidents Trump and Putin. Attempts to sabotage it [continue to] escalate. … [Still], this is the most fateful meeting between an American and Russian president since the wartime. The reason being that the relationship between the two countries is so dangerous right now. Trump could have been cowed by the Russia Gate attacks on him, yet he was not. Trump was politically courageous.”

Important things were decided upon. The president emerged as a statesman, contends Cohen, who had witnessed other summits with Russians under previous American presidents, including Bush I.

Professor S. Cohen is the man who ought to be speaker for the Trump Admin on Russian affairs, but he won’t be, because the president has surrounded himself with philosophical enemies, daughter included.

Good News: Americans Seceding From Unsafe Public Square

Yesterday, I expressed hopes that you wouldn’t let “politicians win, because politicians win if you don’t withdraw from the public square following terrorist attacks.” (Explained in “Don’t Let Politicians Win; Withdraw From Public Square Following A Terrorist Attack.”)

Today, a Gallup poll does my heart good. It affirms that Americans, at least, are acting rationally. They’re not acting as the politicians instruct them to.

Gallop has found that, “Terrorism Fears Drive More in US to Avoid Crowds”:

38% of Americans less willing to attend large events due to terrorism
Previous high was 32% in 2002
46% less willing to travel overseas due to terrorism concerns

MORE.

UPDATE (6/21): Don’t Let Politicians Win; Withdraw From Public Square Following A Terrorist Attack

Fox News’ Shepard Smith was exalting the Belgian human anthill for the speed with which the ants returned to darting back and forth, following a Muhammadan’s attack on Brussels’ Central Station. The terrorist win if we don’t return to our aimless consumption, laughing and making merry as we’re being picked off by the enemy within, goes Shep’s “thinking.”

The terrorists win if we don’t do as the politicians say” is reverse psychology and cliché rolled into one. Obama kept saying, “Dare do x, y or z on matters Muslim, and you guarantee that ISIS wins.” Or, “ISIS wants you to do x, y, and z.”

First, how do these asses know what ISIS wants? Or, are politicians and pundits like Shep simply ass-uming they know? It is more likely politicians are using reverse psychology to get Westerners to comply with their own wishes.

In any event, if ISIS wants you, America, to do what in your estimation is best for you–perhaps ISIS is right and the politicians and pundits are wrong. What a concept!

Perhaps ISIS is right and Shepard Smith is wrong. Mr. Smith, we’ll take that long moratorium on Muslim immigration, which Trump promised and reneged on. It’s a winner for Americans and Europeans. If ISIS approves, too, so be it. ISIS is happy; we are happy; everybody is happy; we all win.

To peacefully bring about the desired immigration policy changes, people need to withdraw from the public square to the extent possible. Secede. Shop online. Instead of dining out, gather at the homes of friends. Only when their Keynesian edifice of non-stop consumption suffers and their re-election is threatened will the politicians carry out their duty to implement immigration policies that safeguard lives.

UPDATE (6/21/017): Excellent. Americans, at least, are acting rationally. They’re not rah-rahing it for the politicians.
