So Much Wonderful Failure in the Election Results

Congratulations to Matt Bevin, the new Republican Governor of Kentucky, only the second Republican governor of that state in forty years, and a man thoroughly hated by the GOP Establishment.  The GOP tried to Cuccinelli him… throw the seat to a Democrat rather than let an outsider win. They failed. Failure is a good look for them.

Oh, did I mention Kentucky’s new Lieutenant Governor is an African-American woman and a Tea-Party Activist?  The left-wing Narrative fails again.

Update: The Progressive Narrative also failed in New Jersey, where a very Republican town re-elected a gay, African-American mayor.

Speaking of Failure, anti-gun fanatic Michael “the Midget” Bloomberg tried to buy the Virginia State Senate so he could impose New York style gun control through his proxies there. Bloomberg spent millions trying to flip the VA Legislature to blue by supporting anti-gun candidates, but it will remain in Republican hands.

Progressives who are obsessed with putting men in women’s bathrooms failed to make this the law in Houston.  It failed Big Time. 61% voted against it. Hillary and Obama supported it. And this is the one that really gave the lefties the sadz.

Progressives who are obsessed with driving small businesses out of business failed to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour in Portland, Maine; a rare display of common sense in a city that went 75% for Obama in 2012.

In Ohio, a measure to legalize marijuana failed majorly; mainly because people didn’t like the idea of a Government-sanctioned cartel controlling all the Mary Jane. The other ballot issue, the one that outlawed Government-sanctioned monopolies, passed. Republicans in the Ohio Legislature are discussing legalization through the legislative process.

Update: San Francisco’s Sanctuary-City, Hipster sheriff went down to defeat as well, although his replacement is also a Sanctuary-City-Loving leftist hack because San Francisco.

This image pretty much sums up watching Democrats/Left-Wingers/Progressives/Chumps react to election results last night.

Captain Reid Orders: “Hard to Port, Full Speed Ahead”

Democrats are reacting to their losses in the 2014 Election by pushing even harder to the socialist left.

Harry Reid is creating a party leadership position for elderly freshman senator – phony Indian – hardcore leftist Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. (Because the Reid-Schumer Democrat Party is too centrist, I guess.) Just a reminder, here’s a few things Ms. Warren (a.k.a. “Fauxcahontas” has taken a position on.

And avowed Socialist Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders s pondering a run at the Big Chair… running to the left of heir apparent Hillary “Dead Broke” Clinton. Sanders politics are straight out of the pipedreams of 70’s liberals… an end to nuclear power, socialized medicine, gun control, gut what’s left of the defense budget and raise welfare spending and… of course… unlimited abortion.

Apparently, the Democrats have looked at the 2014 election results and decided they aren’t nearly Socialist enough.

Mia Love Is Pretty Much a White Dude says SJW in Puffington Host

Posted by V the K at 7:44 pm - November 11, 2014.
Filed under: 2014 Elections,Unhinged Liberals

Darron Smith, a Huffington Post Editor with a Ph.D in Education (Are you impressed?) is a SJW who writes for the Puffington Host and is apparently suffering from an acute case of BRDS (Black Republican Derangement Syndrome).

His derangement has led him to conclude that Mia Love … the Haitian-American Republican female elected to Congress last week… is the very embodiment of White Privilege.

“Love’s political convictions show a strong support for values that do not necessarily represent her interests as a member in any of these oppressed groups,” Smith writes. “For example, blacks are not doing well with respect to education, economics and health outcomes, while women still trail behind in salary and significant positions of power, and conservative politics are not typically known to aid these groups in such key issues. These actualities of Mia’s existence seem to be diametrically opposed to her values that are grounded in a white, male, Christian context.”

So, what he is actually saying is that white, Conservative, Christian values actually *work* in helping minorities achieve, but that blacks should categorically reject these values and continue to live in a state of dependence because the latter is more culturally authentic.

And he prattles on…

“She appears publicly unhampered by the daily grind of white racism that affects other racial minorities within the United States…”

Probably because she doesn’t obsess over her own “victimhood” like “good minorities” are supposed to.

“Mia gets to walk through the hallowed doorways of white institutions controlled by elite, powerful men. She is allowed to pass through in her black, female body with the understanding that she must not see, speak or openly advocate for anything related to race or gender — an unholy compromise. Hence, she might look black, but her politics are red. This is one way white privilege is reproduced at the legislative level of government.”

Mia Love, the embodiment of White Privilege.

I guess the white Democrat man who lost to her must have checked his privilege and lost the receipt.


Joining in the BRDS is left-wing blog Wonkette… who declare Mia Love “crazy” for believing in things like hard work and fiscal responsibility.

Also, a deranged lib on Alternet is describing the election in terms of “bullies” who are apparently beating up America and taking its lunch money.

In North Carolina, “consummate bully” Tom Tillis apparently beat up Kay Hagan and took away her senate seat. How mean, rotten and nasty is Tillis? He’s “the kind of man who allegedly shot paintballs at his neighbor’s barn.” [shudder!] She quoted approvingly an appraisal of Tillis in which he, “repeatedly failed his constituents by undermining public education, healthcare, labor rights, women’s rights, LGBT rights, immigrants’ rights, voting rights, and the environment.” When does that man sleep?

And Tillis “will now take his bare-knuckles brand of politics to Washington.” Lock up your daughters.

Tillis isn’t the only one. “In Michigan, Republican governor Rick Snyder, the bully-extraordinaire who has devoted himself to union-crushing, was re-elected,” Parramore moaned.

The Most Bitterest Loser of All

Not Michael Moore… although his butthurt is, of course, epic. It’s not Tom Steyer, who spent $70M+ to buy the senate and failed. It’s not MSDNC… though their butthurt is also pretty epic, and the rest of the fossil leftist press is also stewing in butthurt.  It’s not the Maryland Democrat Party, who got served.  Or even the national Democrat Party.

No, the most bitter person of the post-election is His Majesty, Barack Hussein Obama. In his post-election press conference yesterday, the president was bitter, snarky, and at times, openly hostile...especially when reporters suggested that he ought to try and work with Republicans.

His Majesty’s response: NFW.

There seems to be precious little chance for any substantive accomplishments over the next two years. The president has demonstrated repeatedly that he is not a partner with which negotiation, short of McConnell-esque abject surrender, is possible. He seems interested in setting up a series of fights with the GOP in order to prepare the ground for the 2016 elections.

Seriously, Minnesota, What Is Wrong With You?

Here is a map of the congressional districts of the 114th Congress. Most of the blue areas are easy to explain; coastal cities with lots of liberal elitists, welfare recipients, and well-oiled union machines, and lots of districts in the southwest with a lot of illegal immigrants.

But seriously, what’s the deal with Minnesota?


I mean, you re-elected Stuart Smalley for Set’s sake.

And now for the bad news

It always feels good to see sanity prevail in an election, yes! And now for some honesty about what isn’t so good, in this election.

Unlike the Reagan wins of the 1980s, or the GOP’s 1994 “Contract with America” win, the 2014 GOP (as a national whole) neither provided nor sold to the voters a pro-freedom, government-cutting vision. The GOP skillfully profited from voter dissatisfaction with President Obama; and little more.

Racial guilt aside, the voters originally bought into Obama because he promised the Impossible Dream: a government which would be Big, but still somehow friendly and American (never mind that oppression is inherent to all Big Governments), and which would look out for them (never mind that socialism serves the elites, undermines the economy for ordinary people, and mathematically cannot provide benefits of much value to most people).

In this election six years later, the voters have repudiated Obama because he failed to deliver on the dream. He promised smooth, cool delivery of the dream. Instead, he gave a string of incompetent, messy disasters that even a corrupt media could not hide: such as the Gulf oil spill (BP’s actions had been approved by Obama regulators), Obamacare (with its expensive and oppressive mandates), Libya war, Benghazi, Syria war, ISIS, Ebola, and a moribund economy where the jobs are part-time, the taxes are higher, the U.S. national debt is doubled and only things that go up are the financial markets and the cost of living. The voters feel “lied to” and for that, they have now punished Obama.

In other words, the voters have not yet learned that the dream itself is impossible. The voters still want Friendly Fascism: a Big Government that somehow (1) works (or, in the famous saying, “makes the trains run on time”); while it (2) maintains a veneer of traditional American freedoms. It is impossible. But voters are hoping now that the GOP can help to correct Obama’s excesses and make the dream work.

The GOP, in this election in 2014, has done little to educate the voters on the dream’s utter impossibility – and thus, little to move America forward.

A Second Helping of Schadenfreude

Democrat abortion fanatic and progressive doll Wendy Davis was solidly trounced in her bid for governor of Texas. One of her supporters responded with this: “KILL ALL THE BABIES YOU F-ing A-hole F- YOU A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE RIGHT TO HER OWN BODY WERE WAY TOO OVERPOPULATED.

Whatever you say, Sweet Pea. One of Wendy’s Community Organizers isn’t taking the loss well.

At DailyKos, the wailing and gnashing of teeth goes on. Apparently, the Republicans haven’t even been sworn in yet (they’re still recovering from hangovers), but they’ve already outlawed abortion and installed a Theocracy.

President Obama isn’t the one that just made abortion illegal or impossible throughout this country. The Christian church and those that voted the Republicans into office are.

At the Democrat Underground Message Board (DUMB), they express cogent analysis.

Elsewhere, an elderly hippie in a pigtail is certain Republicans are plotting impeachment and his followers wail in despair.

The election results have been… really depressing (As a sufferer of clinical depression, this just piles it on and the gloating from the right is starting to edge me into dangerous territory. I’m trying to hold up as best as possible).

The Hollywood Left remains predictably deranged.

“Well, we can look forward to: unregulated banks, no health care, filthy air and oceans, and WAR, WAR AND MORE WAR. Thanks, folks!” – Bette Midler

Yup, just exactly like under both Bushes and Reagan… when there was no health care for anyone and the Congress actually spent money to import pollution from China and India because Republicans love pollution so much.

And it looks like the deranged feminists of the left have a new conservative woman to smack up.

The sound of Joni Ernst castrating hogs while she laughs about her hours slaving on the biscuit line will comfort us. We are certain that, despite all appearances, her Cruella de Vil laughter during her victory speech was not prompted by fond memories of secretly killing and feeding the fryer guy to her Hardee’s customers all those years ago.

Bill Maher calls Jon Ernst a c— in 5… 4… 3…

A Heaping Bowl of Schadenfreude

The Democrat Left is dealing with last night’s election results… not well.

“So The American Voters Have Rewarded The ReThugs For Shutting Down The Government….obstructing everything President Obama wanted to accomplish; sticking with the NRA; refusing to raise the minimum wage; refusing to deal with the immigration issue; piling more debt on students/student loans; voting to repeal ACA over 50 times when the American People finally had some relief on health insurance; and the list goes on and on. What is wrong with the American People. They believe the lies. They like to be lied to. They vote against their better interests.”

To hear the lamentations of their women:

“Tonight doesn’t make me wish I had quit smoking. An early death would be merciful compared to a long slow one with insufficient nutrition and no health care, which is what is coming up. I’m torn, can’t decide in which order to cry and vomit and get sick.”

Progressive Lesbian Sally Kohn is alternating between denial and despair
. Will Saletan of Slate, OTOH, has firmly come down on the side of denial and insisting that… if you look at the elections a certain way, they are actually an endorsement of Obama’s left-wing policies.

Not to be outdone, a member of the DailyKos Lunatic Asylum demands that leftists must start outbreeding conservatives: [Language Warning]

All of us who are not genetically inclined to vote Republican must start breeding. Incessantly. Enthusiastically. Purposefully. Without pause. Dawn till dusk, fucking and having babies. Because that is the only way to increase our numbers relative to theirs. They cannot be convinced, reasoned with, shamed, embarrassed, educated, or informed. They are freeze-dried shit, and our counsels to them are as winter wind against frozen stone. Save your money – there isn’t enough money in the universe to spend them out of delusion. They must be out-bred, they must be outnumbered. They must become Neanderthal to our Cro-Magnon

Remember when Little Green Footballs used to be the anti-Kos blog? Then, they went full-on leftist and the two are now politically indistinguishable. This LGF election thread contains no fewer than 74 uses of the F-word in response to Republican victories.

I am not sure if that’s a rant, or a desperate attempt by a pajamaboy to get laid. Speaking of which, the very horny and stupid Democrat base is now stocking up on birth control because they really believe the “War on Womenfolk” propaganda that Republicans will outlaw it.

Also, Chris “Tingles” Matthews had an on-air meltdown last night, literally screaming at Democrat Senator Cory Booker that Mitch McConnell better not run the Senate like Harry’s Reid’s partisan dictatorship. o_O

Elsewhere at MSDNC, an analyst wishes that white southern GOP voters would all die so the Cuban-Venezuelan style progressive utopia of Democrat dreams could be installed.

The Left-Wing Press, of course, is also bitterly licking their wounds. The MFM had already chosen their template for election coverage once it was clear their Democrats were about to be beaten in a severe manner: The voters are bitter, angry, and “sour,” and they’re mad at both parties. It’s what psychologists call “Projection.”

The AP has figured out why Republicans won: It starts with ‘R’ and rhymes with “Macism.”

Republicans tightened their grip on the South, a steady march since Lyndon B. Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act…

Tim Scott and Mia Love may disagree with their assessment. (Oh, BTW… according to tolerant, racially enlightened Democrats… Tim Scott is an Uncle Tom and Mia Love is “the GOP’s token Negro“)

Given how crazy U.S. political culture has become – in other words, given that too many of today’s Republicans are not that much better than Democrats, who went insane years ago – it’s a bit hard for some of us to be pleased by any political news, even news of a Republican victory.

Helicopter Parenting Versus Democracy

Posted by V the K at 5:29 pm - November 4, 2014.
Filed under: 2014 Elections

Apparently, some worked-up, overprotective parents want to move polling places out of schools, because of media-hyped fears of “Stranger Danger.”

I am currently in a Facebook dispute with the president of the PTO and other moms regarding whether we need to move the polling place from our small suburban elementary school, where people have voted for decades. I have been told that “Cannot be too cautious when it comes to our little ones. There are not problems but the best defense is always a good offense!” and “Too many crazies in the world today.” They are suggesting alternatives that are not even close to the precinct, which is primarily low to middle income residential neighborhoods… These women are already over-involved parents who are constantly requesting volunteers and home-baked treats for teachers, but working to make voting less convenient is taking things too far. They, of course, pointed out the fact that I did not attend the PTO meetings, where these concerns have been discussed — because I would rather be tortured.

In fairness, I guess voting can bring some pretty creepy people into proximity to children.

This Is Not the Narrative

In New York, Republicans are preparing to elect the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.

First-time candidate Elise Stefanik, 30 years old, has a double-digit lead in the race to replace retiring Rep. Bill Owens (D) in New York’s 21st District.

Meanwhile, in Colorado, the candidate the press has dubbed “Mark Uterus” seems to be relying on Gray Power, if this tweet from a Democrat GOTV Rally is any indication.


The Narrative says Republicans are the old white men, and the Democrats are the young, hip dynamic. Why is reality refusing to embrace the narrative? This would be driving the Party of Narcissists nuts if they had any awareness.

The Democrat Party seems to be in full ‘Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard Mode.’ They didn’t get small, the elections did.

Addressing African-American voters, FLOTUS Michelle Obama ordered them to disengage all critical thinking and vote the party line.

“Thats my message to voters, this isn’t about Barack, It’s not about person on that ballot, its about you, and for most of the people we are talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on regardless of who said what or did this, that shouldn’t even come into the equation.”

There is nothing more threatening to the Democrat Party than a minority voter that thinks for himself.

The New York Times has printed an editorial calling for the abolition of mid-term elections.

Short Version: Because Senators and Representatives have to worry about being held accountable to voters, they won’t do things progressives want them to do. Zero Tolerance Gun Control, Amnesty, Socialized NHS-style health care,  the dismantling of the capitalist patriarchy, abortion clinics in every middle school… these things are all very popular with progressives and surely they would be enacted if Congress didn’t have to answer to those stupid bumpkins in flyover country.

Did Harry Reid’s Favorite Billionaire Pay for Colorado “Republicans Will Outlaw Birth Control” Ad?

Tom Steyer, the billionaire climate crony spending some $76,000,000 in an attempt to buy the US Senate (with not a peep from any of the progressives claiming we need to “take big money out of politics”) was probably been the money man behind the NARAL Ad in Colorado that accused Republican Cory Gardner of seeking to outlaw contraception.

Steyer’s NextGen Climate Action Committee reportedly gave $239,000 to a Colorado NARAL affiliate the day before they spent the money on the spots accusing Cory Gardner of wanting to ban birth control.

For those who haven’t heard it, here’s part of the text of the ad.

Woman: So *everyone’s* sold out of condoms? Hmm. How did this happen?

Man: Cory Gardner banned birth control. And now, it’s all on us guys. And you can’t find a condom *anywhere*. And the pill was just the start. Pell grants my little brother was counting on for college? Cory cut them. Climate change that *everyone* knows is weirding our weather, Cory flat-out denies it. Sweet Pea, Cory denies science!

Because the Democrat base of horny, stupid women really believe Republicans want to outlaw contraception… and burn up the environment… and outlaw college educations. Also, Christian Terrorists murder gay people every day. #ThingsStupidPeopleBelieve

Vote Fraud: A Leftist Tradition

Posted by V the K at 7:20 am - October 30, 2014.
Filed under: 2014 Elections

Some historical context for the recent incidents of voting machines in Democrat-run Illinois and Maryland switching Republican votes to Democrat.

“As long as I count the votes, what are you going to do about it?”
— William Marcy Tweed, (1823-1878). “Boss Tweed” was head of Tammany Hall, the Democratic Party political machine that looted millions in graft, corruption, and open bribery from New York City in the 19th Century.

“Comrades, I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how. But what is extraordinarily important is this: who will count the votes, and how.”
— Josef Stalin

So far, there are no reports of “calibration errors” switching Democrat votes to Republican.

Why the Obamacrats Are Losing Millennials

Posted by V the K at 7:17 pm - October 29, 2014.
Filed under: 2014 Elections,Ideas & Trends

The Left used to crow that they would own Millennials — the post Generation X wave that came of age in the Era of Hope and Change — because if you vote Democrat in your twenties, you will vote Democrat forever. And a lot of people in their twenties got swept up in the wave of Hope and Change and voted for Bammy.

It never occurred to these left-wing triumphalists that if “Hope and Change” failed, their constituencies might abandon them. But that’s what’s happening (and granted, it never occurred to the Democrats that Hope and Change would fail … because Paul Krugman, Rachel Maddow, and Jon Stewart were all telling them Obama was perfect and awesome and the Best President Forevers and could never fail.)

… slightly more than half (51%) of young Americans who say they will “definitely be voting” in November prefer a Republican-run Congress with 47 percent favoring Democrat control – a significant departure from IOP polling findings before the last midterm elections (Sept. 2010 – 55%: prefer Democrat control; 43%: prefer Republican control). The cohort – 26% of whom report they will “definitely” vote in the midterms – appear up-for-grabs to both political parties and could be a critical swing vote in many races in November….

As the father of three Millennials, let me tell why the Obamacrats are losing them. The ones in my house and their friends all look out and see a world of limited economic prospects and — in some cases — massive college debt that has failed to produce for them the jobs and wealth they felt entitled to. Whether liberal, conservative, or indifferent Millennials have become aware that the earlier generations who run the Government are screwing them; running up debt that they will stick to the Millennials while destroying or limiting the upcoming generations prospects for economic advancement. My older two boys are happy to be employed and debt-free, but they see friends who have five or six figures of college debt and have to work retail jobs. They are also frustrated at how hard it is to move up within their fields of employment and feel blocked by older workers of less ability; they feel like the system is skewed against their entire generation. The promises of ‘Hope and Change’ ring pretty hollow now; they figured out it was just a meaningless advertising slogan and feel duped (not my sons, but others)

Another millennial of close acquaintance was thrilled that Obamacare meant he could stay on his parent’s insurance until he turned 26. That’s when he was 21. Now that he’s 25, Obamacare is starting to not look like such a great deal.

Gay Marriage Makes Some Strange Bedfellows

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) is endorsing far left Democrat Scott Peters over gay center-left Republican Carl deMaio, because Gay Marriage.

NOM, the Family Research Council (FRC) and CITIZENLink had released a letter that put Republican leadership on notice of their “active opposition” to DeMaio, as well as two other candidates up for election in 2014. However, the first letter stopped short of supporting Peters. The new letter echoes calls from some local Tea Party and conservative leaders to support Peters.

If this were, as NOM is portraying it, a stand on principle, then simply withholding support from deMaio would make sense. Actively supporting his opponent – a left-wing Democrat whose positions are very far out of NOM’s swim lane – is not a stand on principle.

My guess is the tactical reasoning behind this is to warn other Republicans not to jump on the gay marriage bandwagon. NOM can’t accept that – much as it may suck, the battle to preserve traditional marriage is lost. Traditional marriage has been slipping away since 1969 when Ronald Reagan signed California’s “No Fault” divorce law and began the transformation of marriage from a committed Covenant to a non-binding legal contract to stay together for a while and get some bennies. Gay marriage is one of the last nails in that coffin, but it is not the coffin traditional marriage is being buried in. That casket was built by heterosexuals over a period of decades.

On a related note, a court in the state of New York legalized Uncle-Niece/Aunt-Nephew/Uncle-Nephew/Aunt-Niece incest this week; apparently because Uncle-Niece arrangements are common among immigrants, and we are obligated to respect other cultures more than they are obligated to respect our laws.
