America's undeniable decline.

I don't have a lot to add to this theme just now. The second passage quoted below speaks volumes by itself so that's that.

The article by Publius Decius Mus is excellent and is strongly recommended. He captures the uselessness of our "conservative" warriors over recent decades. Sounding good on any one day but, like Ryan, doing jack to do anything like carry the fight to the leftists destroyers.

For purposes of the present article, here's his thought on the possibility of the dying of the republic. Groveling before foreigners and minorities is but one of many symptoms of this:
One of the Journal of American Greatness’s deeper arguments was that only in a corrupt republic, in corrupt times, could a Trump rise. It is therefore puzzling that those most horrified by Trump are the least willing to consider the possibility that the republic is dying. That possibility, apparently, seems to them so preposterous that no refutation is necessary.[1]
The economic collapse has been engineered by the best and brightest and reflects the combined wisdom and political maneuvering of Republicans and Democrats alike. As I like to say, people intend the natural consequences of their acts. Destruction is what's been on the menu:
Since the year 2000, the United States has lost five million manufacturing jobs even though our population has grown substantially since that time. Manufacturing in America is in a state of stunning decline, our economic infrastructure is being absolutely gutted, and our formerly great manufacturing cities are in an advanced state of decay. We consume far more wealth than we produce, and the only way that we are able to do this is by taking on massive amounts of debt. But is our debt-based paper economy sustainable in the long run?[2]

I wonder if any of these morons realize that Trump is their last and only chance of doing the right thing before they get a hemp necktie like Saddam? Their premature celebrations of our demise must seem pretty stupid to you, but you have to realize the enemy has no self-control. Every time they feel dominant they have to rub your noses in it, even though they're all a bunch of spineless cowards. I'm feeling rather confident at this point. That idiot they infested the White House with has seriously degraded the Military, to the point he has to fight with drones. Most of the Air Force is apparently grounded due to pilots not staying on. Now with BLM shooting cops and the system firing them for fighting back, they're screwed. The economy is about done. The BRICs bank is up and running, and soon the US Dollar will no longer be the World's Reserve Currency. Without the petrodollar, the Federal Reserve will simply collapse, and the enemies' influence will simply melt away.

All will be well.

Trump is Messiah.

Joshua, as I've indicated, I've had a few automobile issues to deal with. Like everyone on the planet with a car, when the engine hesitates, the check engine light comes on, or the temp gauge starts to rise I notice it immediately -- and don't continue driving like I've noticed nothing. When it comes to politics and economics, however, it's clear that a huge number of people sleep the sleep of the dead when grave threats to their lives and nation appear like a five-hour fireworks display in their childrens' nursery. Ronn Neff has a great article on this phenomenon, his explanation for which is evident from its title.

Alas, there's no hope of any kind of just retribution for the miscreants who have controlled our nation for over 80 years. Nothing administered by the justice system, that is. Treason and subversion laws have the same status as laws that allow for the disinheriting of bastards or the holding of open air slave markets. Every open borders politician is as guilty of treason as one who facilitates the movement of enemy armor across the southern border. Diluting the nation's white population with third-world opportunists is a sacrament to millions. The hemp necktie will likely be a figurative one more in the form of riots, looting, rising crime levels, and political shifts in favor of foreign enemies (the latter phenomenon being far advanced at this point, visible in the body bags that have come back from our wars to help implement the Saudi and Muslim Brotherhood policies).

I am guarded in my hopes for the better result in November. It will be close, I fear, and the reality of Clinton's being the Dem nominee is simply stunning to contemplate.

Trump does not show that he has any appreciation for the now-abandoned constitutional scheme. Power over health care and rest rooms was not delegated to Congress but he seems ready to plunge into such things when he could do amazing things by revivifying original federalism. Reagan tried but in the end it was only lip service.

That said, what I've noted is merely backing and filling, trying to maintain headway in light airs with a slight breeze ahead. It's the stuff of news shows that ignore war in Syria but broadcast deep discussions of the Apple decision to do away with the headphone jack on its new gizmo. The tectonic forces have been gathering for a long time and the two issues you raise are some of them. Black rejectionism and dysfunction, the presence of millions of Muslims and third-world parasites, leftist degradation of the culture, the hatred of liberty, the influence of dishonest legal doctrines like "living constitution," the worship of equality, debt and offshoring are others.

The elites have the degrees and the money but "events" in the end are what control. Human fiddling with minor details matter not when you zoom out to the scale marked "cosmic."

Anon, would that our politics could serve up deliverance to order. Better than the other guy is mostly the choice we get.

Who said he is the Messiah?
