My favorite living historian Victor Davis Hanson has some predictions about what is to come in the presidential election campaign this summer.  As I do, he understands that the normal political rules simply do not apply this year:

Ignorance, Sheer Ignorance

  The Left is becoming a stronghold of ignorant yahoos:   Just outside downtown Dunn, N.C., a historic antebellum-style house honors Maj.

Hattip to commenter Dale Price.  My motto has always been:  “Slay all the Lunies, and let God sort ’em out!”

Deep State? What Deep State?

Surprise!:     Who would have thought that, this deep into the Russia collusion probe, we’d be learning about yet another dossier

  1. Lock both of them in a darkened room armed with straight razors… whichever walks out alive is the Prez. Sell tickets and wipe out the national debt. At this point all we can do is sit back and enjoy the carnage,

  2. Trump is a Democrat? Then so are John McCain, Mitch McConnell and Mitt Romney. Social views have NO impact in this election season. Pro lifers have been dumped on by the GOP, which has long held a pro abortion stance among its elite. How much does the USCCB care?

  3. “Pro lifers have been dumped on by the GOP”

    Completely false as attested by all the pro-life legislation that the Republicans have gotten through at the state level. But for the Democrats, legalized abortion would now be a bad memory. As for Trump, he is merely a liberal Democrat who has donned a Republican disguise for this election. Compared to the orange haired fraudster, McCain, McConnell and Romney are Reagan Incarnate. Support Trump if you will to be beat Hillary PF. I can understand that. Do not for a moment deceive yourself as to what he is.

  4. I want Trump to win not because I like Yrump but because I want to hear the Democrats howl in disbelief that they lost.

    When I look at the current Washington GOP Establishment, I disagree completely with you. I include in that the current House Speaker who agreed to fund Planned Parenthood. There is a gulf between the state GOP (in almost every state) and the DC GOP Establishment.

    I have no illusions about Trump being a great conservative. On social issues, there is little difference between him and the Hildebeast.

    The situation is that the Hildebeast is a criminal…and so is her husband IMHO. Nothing Trump has done measures up to them. Los Alamos, criminal perjury, the beginnings of the subprime mortgage mess, the rise of Al Qaeda, the USS Cole and the bombings of the embassies in Africa….on Bill Clinton’s watch. Hilary….classified emails, Benghazi…..the Clintons are rotten to the core, backed by a supporting media and entertainment establishment, and a GOP establishment (especially the Bush family) unwilling to say a peep about them.

  6. “I include in that the current House Speaker who agreed to fund Planned Parenthood.”

    That’s humorous that you would mention that since the Republicans in Congress are making yet another effort to end funding for Planned Parenthood.

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/06/29/senate-democrats-block-zika-funding-doesnt-fund-planned-parenthood/

    Now, as in the past, the Democrats in Congress make passing such a bill almost impossible because we do not have 60 votes in the Senate. Since they have the Presidency such a bill would be vetoed in any case. All the while the media will be spinning this feverishly against the Republicans, Finally, when they can’t do the impossible without being blamed for another government shut down, the Republicans will be attacked by pro-lifers. It astonishes me that they are even willing to try this again and again with those odds stacked against them.

    If the orange haired fraudster gets in, I guarantee you he will insist upon funding Planned Parenthood that he praised during the primaries.

  7. “I want Trump to win not because I like Yrump but because I want to hear the Democrats howl in disbelief that they lost.”

    If Trump wins, the howls of liberal despondency would be music to my ears!

  8. Do we all agree there is nothing worse than a Hillary presidency? Accordingly, a vote for Trump is permissible.

  9. I hope we can all agree with you Michael.
    Sitting this one out because Trump is not, kosher, is not enough reason to bury a vote.
    I will vote Trump in the high hope Helliry finds herself in the gutter. That’s an insult to gutter dwellers everywhere, but I never did get the “political correctness” thing, so tough up and make room for your new arrival.

  10. I hope we can all agree with you Michael. Sitting this one out because Trump is not, kosher, is not enough reason to bury a vote.

    I will, with a very clear and easy conscience, not vote for either of the egotistical, sociopathic, leftist authoritarians from New York.

  11. Defects in character?
    Trump comes in second.
    Professional political sociopath vs. Professional business sociopath?

    Taking the vote out doesn’t change which sociopath wins, but voting for the one ( out on a limb here ) that would do less harm seems to be a reasonable option.

    Hillary I’m sure about.
    The duck?
    Uncertain future at best.
    I will not support Hillary, and not voting for her challenger seems like a vote for her.

    Write in’s?

  12. and not voting for her challenger seems like a vote for her.

    This is both logically and mathematically incorrect. As for which is worse, there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference. They are foul and effusive in different ways. Neither of them is a constitutionalist, and both of them represent an authoritarian, statist strain of thought that threatens our freedoms. That there is an infinitesimal chance Trump is superior to Clinton is not enough to justify a vote for the clown, especially when there’s a chance that, somehow, he will be worse.

  13. Is it just illogical to see a threat that wishes to harm your family and Country and sit on your hands while the threat gains control?

    Is it mathematics or brazen hatred for liberty that one of the presidential candidates has made a statement that Religions need to change their views on abortion.

    Come on Paul.
    I detest Trump, but Hillary is a threat that is known and respected by a class of people that have adhered to Saul Alinski’s playbook..and they are participating in it as they support Hillary. Worse yet, they will adopt this methodology, rules for radicals, for their success. The Trump threat is nebulous compared to the history or track record of Hillary Clinton.

    A thread of hope is better than giving up.

  14. Is it just illogical to see a threat that wishes to harm your family and Country and sit on your hands while the threat gains control?

    No, it is illogical to dismiss one person as an equally malignant threat because that individual happens to have an -R next to his name. You can use all the buzzwords you want, Philip, but it is simply wishcasting to pretend Trump represents anything resembling hope when it comes to choosing presidential candidates.


    A thread of hope is better than giving up.

    I’m not the one giving up – quite the opposite. I merely refuse to support one authoritarian over the other.

  15. Thank you Paul for your explanation.

    I’m cringing when I contemplate November and the baby killing machines gloating over their goddess.

    Sitting out a vote is difficult for me to consider, however I can appreciate your views.

  16. Paul–
    “I’m not the one giving up – quite the opposite. I merely refuse to support one authoritarian over the other.”

    St Thomas Aquinas would suggest, in a case like this, that distinctions must be made. While you are correct about both being authoritarian shouldn’t we try to determine which of these seemingly inevitable choices would be the best for orthodox Catholics.
