Seven days in November

Possibly the most astonishing aspect of the blatant efforts to steal the Senate and Congressional elections in the United States is how little commotion it has caused. Votes are being manufactured almost at will, and the only reason the result in Florida is unlikely to be overturned is that the lead for the Republican candidate is so large. Otherwise, the will of the people, etc, be damned. A few of the stories but none from the MSM. What you are seeing is a prelude to the 2020 presidential election. And while this focuses on Florida, you may be sure this occurred in every state and in elections for both the Senate and the House.

ACOSTA GETS A PASS
TRUMP THREATENS TO BAN — AGAIN
CONDUCT ‘RULES’ COMING

Anti-Semitism the new black

Both from Instapundit.

ROGER KIMBALL: In Democratic circles, anti-Semitism is becoming normal. “As people scramble to explain the sudden resurgence of socialism not only on America’s college campuses but also in the corridors of political power, it is worth noting the concomitant resurgence of anti-Semitism in those redoubts. The coincidence is not, as the Marxists like to say, an accident. The truth is that unfettered socialism, though based primarily on a demand for the abolition of private property, always comes riding on a current of anti-Semitism.”

AS GLENN NOTES BELOW, the guy shouting “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump” during intermission at a production of Fiddler on the Roof, which was reported nationwide as yet another symptom of anti-Semitism run amok thanks to Trump, tuned out to be a drunk guy who hates Trump and was therefore comparing him to Hitler. This is exactly what I expected. If you are actually a Hitler fan, would you (a) buy a ticket to Fiddler on the Roof; (b) sit quietly through the first act; and (c) make your pro-Hitler remark during intermission, rather than disrupting the show? Besides, there are way more Americans who think Trump is like Hitler in a negative way than in a positive way.  The question is, why couldn’t the New York Time, Washington Post, etc., (a) figure out that this was unlikely to be an actual pro-Nazi guy; or (b) at least consider the possibility that the guy might actually be anti-Trump and anti-Nazi, and not rush to breathlessly report nonsense?

#MeNeither

This is from David Solway: Why I Am No Longer a Canadian Writer. And Canadian though I be by citizenship, a Canadian writer I am not, since were I still in the Old Dominion, these would have been the social mores that would have been applied to me.

Generally speaking, then, our writers no longer challenge the fashions and superstitions of the day, they defer to them. Our writing culture has for the most part continued its descent into the politically correct dementia of our historical moment, the latest instance being the pronominal madness that has swept through the universities and entered the larger society. We now live in a world of zhis, zhers, zims and eims. It is no surprise that the current office administrator of the Writers’ Union, Valerie Laws, signs off a communiqué with the parenthetical tag “(she/her/herself).” Such silliness has become pro forma, and I fear not even the polemical power of a Jordan Peterson can resist it. The problem is not only legally compelled speech, as Peterson says, but socially compelled compliance.

But I am an Australian writer (and citizen), and while it is still not perfect here – you will find yourself potentially unwelcome in some venues – we are nowhere near what we find there. Bindi Cole’s apology to Andrew Bolt may be one of the best examples of why we may be the last place of sanity remaining in the West. It won’t last forever, so enjoy it while you can.

The return of the samizdat

The modern form of the gulag in the West is ostracism and exclusion. In extreme cases, such as with Tommy Robinson, they might even put you in jail. But with virtually all those who earn their living by writing or within academic institutions working for the government, you pay attention to what it is forbidden to say and conform without deviation to the ruling far-left ideology or you are out. You have to be relatively old by now even to have heard of the term “samizdat” but it was the means for what was a genuine resistance in the Soviet Union and the captive states of Eastern Europe pre-1989 to communicate with each other. Manuscripts were hand-typed by individuals who passed various subversive documents amongst themselves since actually having these works published was literally impossible. Today we can publish, but the consequences to one’s career can be devastating.

Oddly, and I am certain that this is pure coincidence, two prominent bloggers have used samizdat in titles of their posts just this week. First, at Powerline, Steve Hayward wrote on: IT HAS COME TO THIS: ACADEMIC SAMIZDAT. It begins:

We have come to the point where even liberal academics in good standing will feel the wrath of leftist orthodoxy if they depart from the party line. So what to do? Imitate the late Soviet Union, and start a samizdat literature.

And then this from The Other McCain: Reading Samizdat. Here he quoted from a book that is in many ways toxic but in which the following passage may be found that could not be written by anyone who wished to stay within the ruling class ideology of our current elites.

With the passing of the Melting Pot fantasy has come the anti-fantasy — the American Mosaic. The intellectual mise-en-scène has suddenly been rearranged to accommodate a new sociological fad, the pluralistic society, in which all races and nationality groups live harmoniously side by side, all maintaining and strengthening their racial and cultural identity, each making its own contribution in its own way to the total picture of American life.

Like the promoters of the Melting Pot, the salesmen of pluralism have misread history, which teaches that pluralistic societies are static and caste-ridden and a standing invitation to disorder and disaster. Historically disoriented, the voices of pluralism are also dramatically contradictory. They are opposed to racism in theory, but support minority racism in practice. They uphold group identity, but demand integration. They approve of racial quotas, but are against racial discrimination.

Basically, these are thoughts you cannot say in public if you value your career.

The Broward effect

Vote late vote often

Can nothing be done to stop it?


FLORIDA RECOUNT 2018...
Rick Scott warns of 'rampant fraud'...
Orders law enforcement investigation...
Teacher finds ballot box in storage area!
Woman in Minnesota Receives Broward Ballot in Mail...
Gillum un-concedes?
DEM SUDDENLY LEADS IN AZ SENATE RACE...RESULTS...

And then this:

Every Vote Counts in Large Amounts and Much, Much More. “Literally, you can count on them or with them. The Democrats in Florida, Georgia, and Arizona are continuing to ‘count’ the ‘votes’ in the 2018 election and, curiously, as they continue to “count,” the Democrats either take the lead or close the gap.”

They mean to win. Does the GOP?

PLUS NOW THIS: Via Instapundit.

The American killing fields

Just watch it for yourself. He was a field agent for the FBI infiltrated into the Weather Underground. And what would they do with those people whom they could not re-educate?

“They would have to be eliminated … and when I say eliminated I mean kill.” …

“They were figuring out the elimination of 25 million people, and they were dead serious.”

You will know him by his enemies-Jordan Peterson edition

Jordan Peterson is one of the most relentless and effective enemies of the left. Yet he is frequently criticised by those who are supposedly on his own side. If you are in any doubt about which side he is on, here is the Canadian State Media going after him, which is identical to our ABC in being an exactly perfect measure of who is a genuine enemy of the left.

*Premiering on CBC Docs POV Fri. Nov. 2 at 9pm EST then streaming in Canada at cbc.ca/watch*

SHUT HIM DOWN: The Rise of Jordan Peterson has been in the making for the last two years. The feature doc is a behind-the-scenes look at Professor Jordan Peterson as he navigates the biggest controversy of his career. This is the official trailer which illustrates the explosion of polarized opinions that surround his meteoric rise to global fame.

Polarised as in they are a bunch of Marxist frauds and he is opposed to their lies and deceit. The BBC thought they had shot him to pieces and are still amazed how his influence has grown.

I can see many advantages to the Democrats from the fake bomb business. It changes the subject from how well PDT and the American economy is doing as the US heads into the last week before its mid-term elections. They get to pretend they are victims, which is an important leftist meme. The party of Antifa gets to harangue on the importance of civility in politics. All of the media can go off on another set of rants about Republicans. Best of all, no Democrat was ever in the slightest danger of harm since none of the ones on the target list open their own mail.

And no matter how I look at it, I cannot see this as anything other than a very sophisticated Democrat operation. All these bombs and not an arrest in sight. The kind of deep knowledge one would need to pull off even one of these without detection is quite intense, never mind eight or nine, with the numbers still rising. And if they do pin it on someone eventually, I suspect it will be along the lines of the chap Hilary stitched up for the murders in Benghazi because of some video he had produced. Not only liars to the core, but presenting their lies to some of the most willingly gullible who have ever lived. Just the kinds of people who will take global warming and Keynesian economics as valid reflections of reality.

In my view, but who knows, we are never going to know who really sent these fake bombs to this almost perfectly concocted target list. And I can only say there must be some really irritated lefties who feel genuinely affronted by not having been included in the A list of targets. Meanwhile, GOP candidate received letter threatening his 7 children.

That one looks a lot more genuine than the rest. And for the record, I am also as cynical about the fall in share markets around the world. How hard would it be for George Soros and his mates to sell off a parcel of shares all by themselves just to depress the market for a week or two even while the Fed starts to raise rates?

Meanwhile, there are all those people who are voting for a living, and they enter the US by the caravan full: Half America Gets More In Welfare Than Pays In Taxes…

Donald Trump has been a respite from this relentless effort to undermine the values and integrity of the West and our way of life. Enjoy it while you can for après Donald le déluge.

PROVIDING BALANCE: There is, of course, the possibility that whomever has been sending these phoney bombs through the mail is actually a Republican. How can this be denied, since we have zero idea of who has done it or why. To provide us with the additional certainty such moments require is what CNN is for: Debunking the despicable ‘false flag’ theory on the mail bombs. Summarising:

Campaign politics tends to be a lowest-common-denominator business. If something works — no matter how loathsome or even untrue — then it gets used. The end always justifies the means — and the end is always and only winning.

And yet, even by that incredibly low bar, what some right-wing pundits have done in the wake of 10 mail pipe bombs being sent to prominent prominent Trump critics, Democratic politicians, party donors and CNN’s New York office is astonishing. In short: They have suggested — with zero evidence — that is all one big hoax designed to help Democrats in the 2018 midterms, a classic “false flag” operation….

This is both hugely cynical and incredibly logistically difficult. The cynical part is self-explanatory. But consider what Limbaugh and his ilk are suggesting — from a purely logistical perspective. Here’s what would have had to happen for the events of Wednesday to be a false flag:

1. Someone or someones who wanted to help Democrats — and the media, I guess, somehow? — would send a series of pipe bombs to prominent Democrats around the country.

2. Then Democrats or the media or, again, someone, would have to have coordinated with the state and local police — not to mention federal authorities — so that law enforcement said that these were functional bombs (even though, again, according to this theory, they weren’t).

Which, um, is not what happened. As any reasonable person — regardless of your political affiliation — can recognize that that sort of broad conspiracy not only stretches the bounds of the possible but snaps them in two.

It is all so obvious, I am amazed such clarity has only occurred within the Democrat media and to no one else.
