Hoosier Daddy?!

Your’s Truly is in the process of recovering from an overwhelming paschal weekend and am presently working on another installment of “The Long, Cold Civil War.”

In the meantime, I came across this picture on Drudge last night and it made me giddy to no end.

A few peremptory thoughts:

1. This is going to be a wave election. The New York and Acela primaries of the previous two Tuesdays show that a demographic shift of tsunami-like proportions among the core, white demographic is going to work against Hillary.

2. Historically speaking, the two Obama elections will be viewed as an interregnum of sorts; the last gasp of an unstable “coalition of the fringes.” (Hat tip to Steve Sailer.) That is to say that the minorities, single women and assorted grievance groups that propelled Obama to the presidency in the first place, is fraying apart before our eyes. Black people especially are not happy that “Brown is the New Black.”

3. Hillary is a remarkably weak candidate. For somebody who was supposed to have this thing sown up by now, the fact that a aged, Jewish, low-born curmudgeon from Brooklyn who speaks with a funny accent and isn’t even a Democrat is giving her a run for her money means that even her supposed base doesn’t really like her. Don’t get me wrong: she’s going to clinch the nomination but her inability to do so before the GOP got their act together shows me how massively unpopular she really is with her base.

4. Europe matters. The homeland of the Historic American Nation –i.e. the Northwestern Europeans who founded America and the Central and Southeastern Europeans who subsequently populated it–have seen the devastation wrought by the anti-Christian globalists in their respective Mother Countries. They don’t want to see it happen here.

5. La Raza (“the Race”) cuts both ways. I’ll let you read between the lines on that one. Short answer: minorities with chips on their shoulders should dial it way back and be thankful that they don’t live in a Third Word country.

Anyway, enough for now.


  1. Most definitely having Trump go at it against Hillary is the most interesting compared to Cruze or Kasich or any of those other ones. So what about those church fires on Easter?


  2. I can’t believe the people I work with. Some of them are still whining about “I just don’t think a president should talk the way Trump does.”

    For God’s sake, do people think the men on our currency were potted flowers? I can’t imagine the kind of PTSD people would suffer if we had CSPAN videos from the 1770s.

    • Michael Bauman says

      Yes, our founders particularly Jefferson were masters at really dirty politics. Let us not forget Andrew Jackson. He routinely challenged men who offended him to duels and wanted to even while President.

      True there was a higher level of public etiquette during those times but that was a thin veneer in many cases.

      • ReaderEmanuel says

        Nixon was the king of dirty tricks, but Donald Trump makes him look like a little schoolboy prankster.

        • Cynthia mae Curran says

          Probably, Nixon was smarter in some ways he had the Russians and Chinese opposed each other and he was not a nice person either but I read the book about him and his wife and Nixon didn’t have sex until he married Pat. He also fell in love with Pat first. My thing about Trump is he changes his mind too much.

    • 1770’s C-span is a hilarious thought!

  3. “If those of us in the Republican party cannot let go of the personal animosity that exists against each other and unite against the Democratic party, then the 2016 election will be the last election in American history. What I mean by this is if Hillary Clinton becomes our next President then America will enter the longest period of uninterrupted Democrat rule since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Meaning, as Daniel Greenfield of Front Page Mag writes, “it will be the single greatest opportunity for the left to transform America since the days of the New Deal”. Furthermore, Greenfield notes that “even if the Democrats never manage to retake Congress, they will control two out of three branches of government. And with an activist Supreme Court and the White House, the left will have near absolute power to redefine every aspect of society on their own terms without facing any real challenges. And they will use it. Your life changed fundamentally under Obama. The process will only accelerate”.”

  4. “Black people especially are not happy that “Brown is the New Black.”


    • M. Stankovich says

      Would it help to know that in the state of California, the US Census has determined that 40% of adult males in the state are Hispanic; 40% are White, non-Hispanic; 6% are African American; and 14% are Asians/Others? Nevertheless, 71% of the inmates in the custody CA Dept. of Corrections & Rehabilitation are disproportionately non-White (42% Hispanic, or 922 in 100,000; 29% African American, or 4,367 per 100,000; 22% White, non-Hispanic, or 488 per 1000,000; and 6% for Asians/Others, 34 per 1000,000).

      Mr. Michalopulos has historically blamed this on a penchant for the “parasitic lifestyle.” Many, however, are not much of a sociologist or psychiatrist, nor, more importantly, I might add, fans of Matthew 25 and the necessity and outright command of the Lord to carry the message of the Church’s hope and healing to my “side of the tracks,” as it were. Where was the Lord to be found? Among the sick and outcast, the despicable and rejected of society; those who were the most difficult individuals in whom to detect the image and likeness of our God. I highly recommend the late Prof. Christopher Lasch’s The Revolt of the Elites and the Betrayal of Democracy. He was something of a prophet and the author of The Culture of Narciscism: American Life in an Age of Diminishing Expectations and Closing of the American Mind: How Higher Education Has Failed Democracy and Impoverished the Souls of Today’s Students by the late Prof. Allan Bloom of the University of Chicago. Highly recommended, all.

      • Cynthia mae Curran says

        Well, one complain I have against Trump is his trade policy is to take out the car factories out of Mexico. Well, in Mexico they are some of the better paying jobs. If one wants to reduce immigration to the US, Mexico needs more foreign companies not less. A lot of the foreign companies are not American, like Airbus, Nissan, Audi and so forth but Trump followers want to protect factory work in the US and opposed Ford being in Mexico. I have told Trump supporters beef up military spending for aerospace or increase the Space program to get the factory jobs besides just doing protectionism.

  5. Pat Reardon says

    If I were a Republican, I would be upset with the “establishment” GOP folks.

    Republican voters have, apparently, chosen their candidate. That should be the end of the discussion., shouldn’t it?

    • Michael Bauman says

      Trumps whole candidacy is based on dissatisfaction with the GOP establishment. I doubt that what Bush etc. think is going to make a whit of difference.

    • ReaderEmanuel says

      We haven’t chosen “our” candidate when a lot more people voted against him than for him. I don’t think he has gotten more than 40% of the vote anywhere, except his home state, has he? Plus, a lot of folks in open primary states crossed over. I don’t like the idea of Democrats crossing over and choosing the Republican nominee any more than I would like the opposite of Republicans crossing over and, say, voting for Bernie Sanders in order to stop Hillary Clinton. The process needs to be changed. All primaries should be closed. No more crossing over unless you re-register long beforehand.

      • Peter A. Papoutsis says

        The people chose Trump, the GOPe did not. The people forced the elite to chose their choice. Silly GOPe democracy is for people, not oligarchs.

        Peter A. Papoutsis

      • Federalism allows each state to make its own rules. If people want a closed primary, they can make it so.

        As for Trump’s percentages, 40% is a landslide when you have a dozen or more candidates. And he will have over 50% of delegates by the end of this, and delegates is the only metric that matters.

      • “A lot more people voted against him” Huhh ?? Then a LOT LOT LOT more voted against Jeb and Marco and Carly Ted John Lindsey Ben Rand and all others, lets just use some simple deductive reasoning can’t we ?? Compare Trump to all the others .. just for a little context .. there is no comparison, they got routed, all of them, sent home pack’n no need for their bogus bribed “super delegates” or the 12 hundred whatever delegates, they’re done. Now you have the “conservatives” in their sheep’s clothing, the shills, Ryan, Romney, Jeb, Dubya, and Graham (he ran and didn’t even get half a percent, who is he?) and those others, well they are “ESTABLISHMENTCRATS” and not Republicans. They are closer to Hillary and Billary and Debbie Wasserman and Elizabeth Warren and all the “establishment” Dems. All the “polls” they run on CNN and prognostications is all conjecture at best, telling us Kasich would beat Billary, what, how, when he can’t win nothing in the Primaries? All the notions of cross-over voting (CNN spin), small handful, the people voting for Trump are voting for Trump. Hillary meanwhile has no enthusiastic support from no one really, everyone knows she is long time corrupt crooked establishment, but there are those who feel comfortable with that status quo.

        • Cynthia mae Curran says

          Hey, I didn’t like Trump from the beginning. I recently found out that China currency is higher than it was 10 years ago and Trump clothing products moved manufacturing from Honduras to Bangladesh since the wages in Honduras was 1.50 per hour and Bangladesh was about .30 per hour. I always thought Trump was a phony on both Trade and Immigration but people were so mad that they would not support Cruz or Rubio or anyone else in the Republican primary. The Republicans unfortunately got Trump and the VP nomination is more important than Trump himself.

    • M. Stankovich says

      Where I’m from, your comment would ordinarily be referred to as “state the obvious.” Apparently, these are not ordinary times.

  6. Peter Millman says

    It is entirely possible that the email scandal could end Hillary’s candidacy. Clearly, she has broken the Espionage Act, and her account may have been compromised. As a probable felon, she is clearly unfit for the Presidency of the US. It may be either President Sanders or President Donald J. Trump.

  7. Michael Kinsey says

    A good tree bears good fruit, an evil tree bears evil fruit. It matters little to me, if I am given the choice between a rotten banana or a rotten apple. Each is a bunch of sour grapes, which only set the the children’s teeth on edge.
    The Clinton’s , at least one of them, were intown, saturday. I was approached by a man speaking English in a thick Belgian/French accent. He told me all about the revelations in the video, Everything is a richman’s trick. Then he told me he was a Jesuit. I regognized him at once. Adolfo Nicholas. I am looking for vidoes of him speaking online. I will report it here, if I recognize the same voice. If, I don’t disappear first.

  8. Take note – George’s favorite villain, the “Honorable” “Minister” Louis Farrakhan is also a Trump fan:


    • Archpriest Alexander F. C. Webster says

      Not newsworthy, Matt: the KKK used to endorse Democrat candidates during the era of segregation and subsequently shifted to Republicans, and the Communist Party USA, when not fielding its own preposterous candidate for the U.S. presidency, usually supported the Democrat nominee publicly. In none of those situations did the endorsement reflect the character or political philosophies of the endorsed candidate. Nor can you smear Trump with the Farrakhan brush.

      • George Michalopulos says

        For what it’s worth, the Grand Dragon of the KKK’s California chapter has endorsed Hillary Clinton. Lest we forget it was under Bill that we saw the greatest incarceration of black men in history. They may –just may–know something we don’t.

        Just sayin’.

  9. Michael Bauman says

    I am beginning to think there are a number of similarities between The Donald and Andrew Jackson.

    If I am right that should give us pause but perhaps some slight hope as well.

    Certainly in personality there is no President since Jackson who is similar to Mr. Trump.

    • Archpriest Alexander F. C. Webster says

      Theodore Roosevelt?

      • Michael Bauman says

        Father, I get you point but Teddy was more polished and, despite his free wheeling was, IMO, more a part of the political establishment.

        He was a Secretary of the Navy and McKinley’s VP.

        He comes close though, I will grant you that.

  10. Michael Bauman says

    ….and Governor of New York. Jackson was always a maverick. Even while President he refused to play the game like anyone else…thus his Kitchen Cabinet, wide use of his authority to reward friends with government jobs (quite legal at the time). Good and bad came of his penchant for authoritarian rule.

    The Indian Removal Act was the worst action of his Presidency. His sending Federal Troops into South Carolina to prevent secession certainly bought the North time to get to a place where they could prevail militarily.

    Due to what we would today call “anger issues”, I have always thought that someone like Jackson would be unelectable to any high office these days. I still do.

    Jackson’s anger was genuine anger that often resulted in personal violence toward those with whom he was angry. Trump’s is feigned bombast. A tool he uses to keep his opponents off balance. He is a pragmatic populist. Which means that you can never trust him to do what he says he is going to do.

    The Republican elites are looking more and more like petulant fools, whining and crying. That alone is a reason to hope I think.

    Time will tell. Still not going to vote.
