Trump got canceled

We’re all familiar, or should be, with the ugly phenomenon of Cancel Culture. It was hatched years ago by the Democrat Socialist Party — formerly known simply as the Democrat Party — to have people who voice blasphemous opinions “canceled” in some way. Usually, this means you get fired from your job.

You might get canceled in other ways too. Social ostracism is popular. In some situations, you can have the bejezus beaten out of you. Antifa, the Black Shirt arm of the Democrat Socialist Party, is enamored of that approach.

Cancel Culture has been very successful in gagging conservatives, most of whom were not particularly courageous in the first place. Now, even less. Cancel Culture, by other names, was popular in Stalin’s Soviet Union and in Mao’s Communist China, and it remains popular in Communist Cuba today. I have visited Cuba. It’s a nasty place.

The Democrat Socialists have been trying to cancel President Trump since he won the presidency, even before he was sworn in. Every attempt failed as Trump always responded with raspberries and the extended finger, figuratively speaking, of course.

They called him a bully for this. Him. Yeah, sure. He’s the bully.

Trump is no coward, fights back, and that drove the Democrat Socialists into wild fits of rage because they are accustomed to winning, and winning with ease. The Russian collusion hoax failed. The impeachment (for what exactly?) failed. They just could not knock him over, and these people are accustomed to success.

Then came the election, their last hope. They rigged it.

And they landed him at last. Their biggest fish.

The bad smell

Successful civilizations come … and go. More often than not, it’s their very success that causes their departure. Sometimes they fall rapidly, mostly by military conquest, but other times it’s more gradual, and you get the first hint this way:

A bad smell.

Western Civilization now needs industrial-strength deodorant.

Academia has fallen — watch the video above by the perceptive Bill Whittle — and it’s impossible to overstate the significance of that. And recently, in the United States, democracy collapsed too. If you think Biden won 18 million more votes than Obama won in 2012, I have a London Bridge replica in Mexico’s northern desert you can buy for next to nothing.

The aroma grows worse by the day. If you don’t notice, it’s because you vote Democrat above the border, but the stench will overwhelm even you in time. Revolutions eat their own. Ask the French. And the Russians. And the Mexicans.

One aspect of the stink is the apologetic society.

Whittle addresses that beautifully in the video below.

Have a nice day. While you still can.

At times I feel like Winston Churchill talking to Neville Chamberlain.

News of the day

Photo from seven years back, standing in the kitchen one evening.

This photo sat hidden on my computer. I’m sharing it with you. It’s a chilly morning today. On Friday it snowed in Chihuahua, way north of here, and this morning there were weird, front-type clouds in our sky. Winter is on the way.

Winter is always a challenge due to the Hacienda’s lack of adequate heating, so we bundle up. It won’t be long before I don my thermal underwear which I will keep on till Springtime. Perhaps we’ll light the fireplaces on occasion, but we rarely do that. I still have lots of firewood that I brought here 17 years ago from our previous home.

We rely more on portable gas heaters, two downstairs and one upstairs.

Mostly, we just bundle up with extra layers.


The trains are running again

After a lengthy, silent lapse, railroading continues down the tracks just a block away, providing us night music of a rumbling nature.

One or more of the teacher unions, in cahoots with ever-radical “student teachers,” had the tracks, which are a major commercial link to the port of Lázaro Cárdenas on the Pacific coast, barricaded for two months to protest some nonsense or other.

The government stood idly by, as it always does if possible, till commercial interests finally forced action, and the government came to some agreement with the trouble-makers and the tracks were cleared. Among the common demands of “student teachers” and their union cronies is guaranteed employment after graduation. That’s right, guaranteed.


Elections coming up

Mexico has elections next year, not a presidential vote though so many of us would love to get rid of our demagogic doofus, but we’re stuck with him for another four years. No, the elections are lower ones, especially congressional spots.

The three traditional and long-running parties, the leftist PRD, the rightist PAN and the whatever-works PRI, are joining in an odd alliance to support common candidates against Morena, the party of the presidential clown. I wish them luck.

Morena is a new party formed by the doofus when no other party would have him.

In Mexico, people must have laminated IDs to vote, and you have to prove citizenship to get one. And you can’t (insert laugh track) mail it in. You go to the polling place and stand in line. The United States could learn a thing or two from us.

Speaking of elections and mail-in votes, I leave you with the following:

The world we live in

Walking through the living room last night, I shot this.

A poll indicates that about 30 percent of Democrats think the U.S. presidential election was stolen. About 90 percent of Republicans concur. Why it’s not 100 percent is baffling. That other 10 percent must be those people we call RINOs.

Or maybe it’s just proof that a portion of any group are nincompoops.

That almost a third of Democrats are clear-headed is heartening. I wonder why they think that. I wonder where they get their news, clearly not CNN, The Washington Post or The New York Times, those running-dog lackeys of the DNC.

Speaking of running-dog lackeys, YouTube is now inserting a claim at the bottom of videos questioning the election results that The Associated Press has declared Sleepy Joe and Round-Heels Harris to be the winners, as if the news media make that call.

Never have, never will.

The Fat Lady has yet to sing, but she will in time, and we Trumpsters hope she croons a positive tune, putting the five-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee back into the Oval Office. I remain guardedly optimistic. You would hardly know about the legal cases currently in the pipeline if your news sources are the above-named running-dog lackeys.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a brilliant man, says it’s the first U.S. presidential theft since the White House was stolen from Andrew Jackson in 1824. I looked into that, but the system was very different in those days. It does appear that Jackson was blocked due to political hanky-panky. He went on to win, however, four years later.

Now where is that Fat Lady? Warming up stage-right?

Rudy Giuliani is still scribbling the opera.

With luck, it’ll be a blockbuster.
