On Sundays I have on the radio the TV news shows that are rebroadcast on Bloomberg Radio, including Meet the Oppressed, Fox’s Fake News Sunday, CBS’s Fake the Nation, and ABC News’ Not This Week. These people seem to be obsessed with politics, elections, and government. Upchuck Todd and George Snuffleupagus are the worst. I think Margaret Brennan has been terrific for the past few weeks, particularly because she hasn’t been on for the past few weeks. And everybody seems to praise Chris Wallace as “fair and balanced,” particularly because of all the non-statists and libertarians he has on every week. (Just kidding — we know Chris Wallace would never have anyone on who would truly “rock the boat,” being the gutless wonder that he is, just as are most of the others on mainstream news media.)
But these people are obsessed with elections, and after Tuesday they will immediately be discussing the 2020 Presidential race, because this stuff is their reality. It’s like they know nothing else, or care about nothing else. When they discuss other non-election related news, such as the ongoing Saudi Arabia crisis or dealing with Iran, it’s always in the context of “What will government do about it?” Yet the real answers to those issues are outside of government, and outside of politics. (Don’t tell them I said that.)
On Tuesday’s elections, predictions are that Republicans will lose the House to Democrats but keep the Senate. People think that Democrats will take back the House based on recent polling. But I think a lot of people lie to pollsters, which is what they should do. I’m sick of polls and pollsters. As Marxine Waters might say, “They can all go straight to hell!” and all that.
But listen to all the activists on talk radio, and the aforementioned shows, they are hysterical with these elections. It’s the end of the world if their guy loses, and every single vote counts, and all that crap. No, every single vote does NOT count, sorry about that. And, “If we can just get the right people in those offices, then everything will be better, you’ll see.” People really believe that. And that’s because propaganda influences the masses constantly. The masters run their propaganda pieces on mainstream news media and pop culture to make sure that the sheeple don’t catch on that the system as a whole is inherently flawed and can’t be fixed. (Shh, don’t tell them that, the rulers want them to stay enslaved…)
And a lot of the people who associate their “thinking” with the left, like the college snowflakes and political activists who never had any genuinely significant and meaningful real-life experiences, will be acting worse than hysterically when they hear that Republicans keep control of both houses of Congress. They will be more than hysterical than they were in 2016 when Trump was elected. Many of them may join the violent faction of the SJW crowd, the gender- and race-obsessed, the class-warfare commies. At least, that is what I fear about these irrational and loathsome fanatics on the left.
Worse, the Trump supporters, nationalists and conservatives who will be pleased with Rethuglican gains will be more aggressive themselves. They will support the congressional Rethugs’ continuation and escalation of the surveillance state and the police state, especially with their anti-immigration idiocy and paranoia at the southern border and the drug war. The people on the “right” (who oftentimes are “wrong”) will also be hysterical as they are now with their beloved statism. If these people and their talk radio conservatards were so obediently approving of Brett Kavanaugh regardless of his being a major-league swamp creature, a constitutionally-ignorant moron and a rubber-stamper of the very police state that has empowered the Mueller fishing expedition, then said conservatards will eat anything up, and approve of the worst of the worst. You see, many people go into denial and set principles aside, and they hope for the best, like in a Twilight Zonish, Orwellian kind of way.
I could be wrong, of course, and Democrats really will take over the House. That will mean Speaker Nancy Lugosi again, an end to Republicans’ ability to indict Clinton, Strzok, McCabe, Comey, Brennan, and get the truth out about who really attempted to steal the 2016 election, and an impeachment of Trump for the wrong reasons. (The real reasons would be war crimes. Like that would ever happen.)
