Trump Nullifies Republican Debate, AGAIN; Wisely Courts Trump Democrats

Democrats, Donald Trump, Labor, Media, Republicans, The South

I won’t be watching this make-believe Republican Debate, led by intellectual pygmies like Dana Perino, Bret Baier and at least 4 of the wannabe candidates

I do LOVE how Trump, in meta style, has made the latter—as well as all panelists on the other Fake News channels—irrelevant, white noise.

For the second time. On August of 23, some major dummies–Karl Rove (an architect of the war on Iraq), Ms. Perino, and the scintillating Trey Gowdy convened to sell something, for a change. They were trying to engineer a parallel reality for Deplorables.

As they say in the hood: Talk to the hand; the face ain’t listening.

So speak up, Ms. war-forever-more Nimrata Nikki Haley (who was empowered by Trump during his presidency), I can’t hear you. You too, Tim-something-or-another. Did you say something, Mr. anon on the upper-left of the screen?

It is an excellent political move, by the way, for Trump to be supporting labor. (I’m obviously not saying here that I support the United Autoworkers’ case.)

In this, Trump acts like a Southern Democrat (the good kind, once-upon-a-time)—and like RFK, Jr. might. Or, Trump deploys something similar to the Sailer Strategy.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., is, come to think of it, a Trump Democrat (my new coinage).  The term mirrors the positive elements of a Southern Democrat.

Dixiecrats was the derogatory name the Media Ministry gave to what was really the States Rights Democratic Party. Considering that the Constitution consigns law enforcement to state and local governments, the position the Dixiecrats took was hardly subversive.

The issue of segregation or racism, moreover, is intellectually independent of states’ rights. The reason for the mistaken conflation of states’ rights and segregation resides with the same propagandists who successfully equate, for the purposes of discrediting, the right of secession with an alleged support for slavery.

For shooting his mouth off, Trump has been designated a felon. Relays of prosecution launched against him have culminated in the Georgia arrest: That is persecution. Trump is being subjected to the Law of Rule, not the rule of law ~ilana

NEW COLUMN is “Trump: Heroic Martyr—However…” You can read it in its entirety on WND.COM, The New American, and The Unz Review.

It’ll be available on later this weekend.


That Donald Trump is a political martyr is indisputable. It was already bedrock truth in January, 2021, when I first uttered the M-word. The occasion was the president’s second impeachment, passed impromptu in the House, with no due process of law afforded him whatsoever.

That the persecution of Trump is his badge of honor, a decoration of sorts, has been seconded in some unlikely quarters. Individuals calling themselves Blacks For Trump say the same. Trump is a Brother now: They designate you a felon for shooting your mouth off, and book you into the infamous Fulton County Jail in Atlanta; that means the system is messing with you, they say. You are one of us.

Brothers who speak like this are sensing a deep injustice that comes with institutional rot.

Relays of prosecution launched against Trump have culminated in the Georgia arrest: That is persecution. Trump is being subjected to the Law of Rule, not the rule of law.

Now that Trump has been martyred—we pray for the former president and salute him for his resolve and resilience in the face of unadulterated evil. For the Permanent State, Democrat and Republican, want Trump gone for good—and worse. There! I said it. It’s the truth.

The D.C. hydra head has denied Robert F. Kennedy Jr. a security detail; and they’d assassinate Donald Trump if they could. They’d do the same to you, if you mattered.

In their mild, flaccid responses to the martyrdom of Donald Trump; the Republicans remain execrable.

Admiration for Trump the Man notwithstanding—his failures as a president are irremediable. …

… I count the ways in, “Trump: Heroic Martyr—However…” Read it in its entirety on WND.COM, The New American, and The Unz Review.

UPDATES ONGOING (8/28/023): Trump’s Piss-Poor Personnel Choices: A Treacherous T & A Show

Affirmative Action, Conservatism, COVID-19, Donald Trump, IMMIGRATION, Media, Neoconservatism, Republicans

There is no question that Donald Trump is a political martyr. The Permanent State, Democrat and Republican, want him gone—and worse. There! I said it. It’s the truth. But now that Trump has been martyred—we pray for the former president and admire him for his resolve and resilience in the face of pure evil. My admiration for Trump the Man notwithstanding—his failures as a president are irremediable ~ilana

Otherwise, Donald Trump is adorable. His mug shot is a piece of political art ~ilana

Head on over to CNN or ABC if you are interested in taking the measure of some typical celebutantes hired by Donald Trump during his presidency.

On the progressive Fake News networks one can observe the female flotsam and jetsam—former Trump personnel-–perform for the camera, hissing like cobras against the former president. They got gigs at CNN: Stephanie Grisham, Olivia Troye, Sarah Matthews. On The View it’s Alyssa Farah Griffin. Toxic and stupid, all. I know they believe otherwise, but nothing these banal bimbos will say will ever matter or mean anything in the grand schemes of things.

Trump had promised Deplorables to hire the best. Instead, he gave us a T & A parade of subpar females, including his daughter.

For Ivanka, Trump bombed Syria. For her lapdog husband, he approved a boatload of H-1B visas. Both Jared and Ivanka, aka Jarvanka, were eager to make a splash at Davos (Davos before Deplorables). Thus, at Jarvanka’s behest—and spurred on by his own bad judgment—Trump began firing and feuding with the architects of MAGA, all of whom could not stand the Davos duo.

Ivanka had vaporized the excellent John Kelly, who had kept Jarvanka out of the Oval Office. As did Trump’s daughter get rid of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, a tough ice-princess, who effectively instituted and administered the zero-tolerance policy on the border and never caved over family separation.

Ivanka and her husband then inaugurated the Goldman-Sachs West-Wing matriarchy (Jared is androgynous). Dina Powel, former adviser to Ivanka, soon made it onto Trump’s National Security Council. She was a relic from Goldman Sachs and an Ivanka recruit. The affable Democrat Gary Cohn, Trump’s chief economic advisor, was former president and chief operating officer of Goldman Sachs.

These “Kushner-Cohn Democrats” ousted Stephen Bannon from the West Wing.

Ivanka and the bimbo parade proved to be “The Donald’s most intractable problem.” “What Ivanka wanted Ivanka got,” at the expense of the MAGA agenda.

Whether Deplorables admit it or not, the two New York liberals, a nepotistic appendage to the Trump Administration, had been a disaster for the plank President Trump had promised and for which Deplorables voted.

And I won’t even go into the press secretaries who bedecked Donald’s dais, starting with stumblebum Sarah Huckabee, obsequious, apologetic and useless.

From Day One, and in a book published June 29, 2016, I had cheered “The Trump Revolution” and in particular, “The Donald’s Creative Destruction.” In “The Trump Revolution, The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed” (June, 2016), Trump was celebrated as a,

“Political Samson that threatened to bring the den of iniquity crashing down on its patrons, … an entrenched punditocracy, a self-anointed, meritless intelligentsia, oleaginous politicians, slick media, big money: You name it; Trump was tossing and goring it.”

In the same book, I had recommended that if Trump needed bling to front his administration—let him choose women like Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter, who could bring it intellectually, had fight in them, and are easy on the eye, too. But men with fragile egos don’t like women smarter than themselves.

The Republicans are execrable for their weak response to the martyrdom of Donald Trump.

Still, there is no question that Donald Trump is a political martyr.  I first uttered the M word on January 13, 2021, over 2 years ago, in a post titled, “Make No Mistake, It Is Trump Voters Who’re Being Impeached In The House, Set Up For Persecution“:

Martyred twice—take the president’s second impeachment, passed impromptu in the House (Senate still to fold) with no due process of law afforded him whatsoever—as a badge of honor, a decoration of sorts

Trump is a brother now, say individuals calling themselves Blacks For Trump  … They put you in the infamous Fulton County Jail in Atlanta; that means the system is messing with you. You are one of us. What the brothers are sensing here is injustice. It’s what I call the Law of Rule, as opposed to the rule of law.

The Permanent State, Democrat and Republican, want him gone for good—and worse. There! I said it. It’s the truth. Now that Trump has been martyred—we pray for the former president and admire him for his resolve and resilience in the face of pure evil.

My admiration for Trump the Man notwithstanding—his failures as a president are irremediable. He ushered in an intolerable and damaging T & A show of treacherous bitches. He normalized neoconservatism, emboldening its representative to make a comeback, by heeding his daughter and hiring so many of them. Nikki Haley and John Bolton are examples. He heeded their policy advice too:

“It’s often said that the Trump administration is ‘isolationist,’” wrote historian Andrew J. Bacevich, in the UK Spectator. Untrue. “In fact, we are now witnessing a dramatic escalation in the militarization of US foreign policy in the Middle East, Africa and Afghanistan. This has not been announced, but it is happening, and much of it without … any debate in Congress or the media.”

Trump squandered the mandate he was given. He failed to prevent the consolidation—and the crimes—of a Covid Cartel, the vaccine, the lockdowns, the decimation of American small business and the destruction brought by the summer of black-on-white rage, which went unpunished under his watch. The promised Wall gave way to “multilayered technology”; to the “deployment of additional personnel,” and to the tried-and-tested (not!) “vetting of prospective immigrants, refugees, and other foreign visitors.”

And you know that Kimberly G-String (who makes Madonna look natural) will be waltzing straight into a role as Trump’s press secretary—if not Don Jr., paramour, then another such apparition like her.

More about Kimberly Guilfoyle in “Is Political Participation Predicated On Views About Holocaust?” (November 14, 2019)

(8/28/023): Then there is Alina Habba-Habba. She’s what Trump appoints, and will continue to appoint, because he lacks the wherewithal to assess serious intelligence and to think deeply. Otherwise, Donald Trump is adorable. His mug shot is a piece of political art.



UPDATE III (8/8/023) Ukraine Destroyed On The Altar Of The Imploding, Morally and Fiscally Bankrupt American Empire

America, Bush, Canada, Debt, Economy, Federal Reserve Bank, Foreign Policy, Ilana Mercer, Republicans, Russia

WIN OR DIE, DUMMIES is what Ukrainians are being instructed by the US, its NATO marionettes and the treacherous leader Zelensky, who is protected by the aforementioned forces ~ilana

The depravity—the immorality—of Ukraine’s America-engineered existential reality … ~ilana

Four minutes and 21 seconds into his YouTube interview with Aaron Mate, John Mearsheimer, a utilitarian political scientist, says this: “Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, made it clear that Ukraine would not be admitted into NATO until it had prevailed in the conflict [with Russia].”

Mearsheimer addresses the purely pragmatic, utilitarian aspect of the reality into which Ukraine was thrust. It cannot win the war with Russia. Therefore, deduces Mearsheimer, Ukraine will not be brought into the NATO alliance.

True. This much we all knew.


UPDATE (8/3/023): This depravity—the immorality—of Ukraine’s America-engineered existential reality was seconded by one Dan Sullivan, Republican representative from Alaska.

Following a recent NATO Summit, which, naturally, determined that US stooge and puppet Ukraine would not be rewarded with NATO membership—the Fix News outpost, another fount of establishment deceit, entertained Sullivan for a comment.

Sullivan—with a demented grin you’d expect to see on a patient with end-stage syphilis (a career-destroying line I used on Genghis Bush in 2003)—offered that Ukraine has not won yet. The question was not Ukraine’s admission into NATO, said this Republican reptile; the question was winning against Russia.

WIN OR DIE, DUMMIES is what Ukrainians are being told by the US, its NATO marionettes and the treacherous leader Zelensky, who is protected by the aforementioned forces.

UPDATE III (8/8/023): August 7 was Joni Ernst’s time to make the fur fly. (Cynicism alert.) Ernst, Republican representative from Red Oak, Iowa, proves, in the end, that it is as Dr. Johnson said: “There is no settling the point of precedency between a louse and a flea.” Neoconservative or neoliberal; louse or flea, a pest is a pest.

The words of this particular political pest were the as follows:

Once Republicans explain to us, Americans, the nature of the mission to Iraq, oops, Ukraine—yes, where have I heard such GOP Machiavellian talk before? Rhetorical—we The People will get behind the mission.

“Shock-‘n-awe of the old days,” said Ernst, will garner support for the war in Ukraine.

Oh, and, if this following cliche is new to you: Ernst thinks that our “adversaries do not fear us.” No worries, Ernst. On August 5, also on Fox News, Victor Davis Hanson critiques Obama for the few good things 44 did: returning to Iran monies stolen by the American government. Diplomacy with Russia.

VDH has been avidly cheering for the Ukrainian project—and seems unable to quiet his rhetoric about American foreign-policy Manifest Destiny. His first instinct was to support the Ukrainian endeavor and he holds the most mundane neoconservative views on Russia. Being Neocon, wrong and immoral earns America’s pundits plaudits aplenty.

The tête-à-tête between these two effetes—Fox News’ interchangeable anchor and Sullivan, archetypal Republican—revealed a tidbit that backs my longtime theorizing about Canada: That country is not too serious about tyranny. Canada makes noises about following Uncle Sam. It badly wants to be the USA when it grows up. But it always falls flat. Kudos. Thus, talk aside, Canada contributes minuscule sums to NATO.

In any case, the depravity—the immorality—of Ukraine’s America-engineered existential reality is that, the United States, via its NATO front, has used Ukraine, mercilessly dangling NATO membership before this poor nation, to attempt to dislodge Putin. Putin is a reactionary Russian patriot, natural ally of any sovereign, conservative nation-state. The radical American objective is to make Russia over in the image of America: an abiding Jacobin stronghold at heart.

UPDATE (8/4/023):  As this writer remarked in commentary about “America’s radical, foreign-policy Alinskyites, in March, 2021, “Certain national-conservative governments in East Europe should be natural allies to conservative policy makers, stateside, if such unicorns existed. Vladimir Putin’s, for example. Before his death, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, one of Russia’s bravest and most brilliant sons, praised Putin’s efforts to revive Russia’s traditional Christian and moral heritage. For example:

In October 2010, it was announced that The Gulag Archipelago would become required reading for all Russian high-school students. In a meeting with Solzhenitsyn’s widow, Mr. Putin described The Gulag Archipelago as ‘essential reading’: ‘Without the knowledge of that book, we would lack a full understanding of our country and it would be difficult for us to think about the future.’ …
If [only] the same could be said of the high schools of the United States. (Via The Imaginative Conservative.)

For a long while, the Russian president patiently tolerated America’s demented, anti-Russia monomania. And, as America sank into the quicksands of what Cons call “Cultural Marxism”I, since the get-go, have framed the new Western dispensation as anti-Whiteness—Putin’s inclinations have remained decidedly reactionary and traditionalist.

He prohibited public sexual evangelizing by LGBTQ activists. He comes down squarely on the side of the Russian Orthodox church, such as when vandals, the Pussy Riot whores, obscenely desecrated the cathedral of Christ the Savior. The Russian leader has also welcomed as refugees persecuted white South Africans, where America’s successive governments won’t even officially acknowledge that they’re under threat of extermination. Also, policies to stimulate Russian birthrates have been put in place by the conservative leader.

The command-and-control US Media have purged any news of peace talks with Russia. “Peace” is a dirty word in the Western Warfare State, for “war is the health of the state.” Ukraine, for its part, is led by a vainglorious fool. “Zelensky is a kept man, his flesh softer than sin under the khaki costume.” For all his Jewish-lineage boasts, Zelensky ought to know that,  “It’s biblical. “A leader who fails to haggle for the lives of his people is a failed leader.”

So, it has been ordained that Ukraine be destroyed on the alter of the imploding, degenerate, morally and fiscally bankrupt American Empire and its European zombie satellite states.

“The US is today running bigger deficits than ever.” According to gold bug Egon von Greyerz, “There is only one buyer of US debt – the Fed.” The last assertion is hard to verify, namely that nobody is now buying US debt. Nevertheless, this is entirely believable.
