DC’s Corrupted Legislative Process and Why The Dem/Rep UniParty Dismisses Your Opinion of It… by sundance

Washington’s lawmakers have very little to do with making laws, except for auctioning off their votes. From sundance at theconservativetreehouse.com:

REPOSTED BY REQUEST – CTH often describes the background DC motives with the phrase: “There are Trillions at Stake.” Here we take a look at what that really means, and how DC politics is not quite based on the ideas that frame many reference points.

With people taking notice of DC politics for the first time; and with people not as familiar with the purpose of DC politics; we end up within two different references. Perhaps it is valuable to reset the larger frames of reference and provide clarity.

Most people think when they vote for a federal politician -a House or Senate representative- they are voting for a person who will go to Washington DC and write or enact legislation. This is the old-fashioned “schoolhouse rock” perspective based on decades past. There is not a single person in congress writing legislation or laws.

In modern politics not a single member of the House of Representatives or Senator writes a law, or puts pen to paper to write out a legislative construct. This simply doesn’t happen.

Over the past several decades a system of constructing legislation has taken over Washington DC that more resembles a business operation than a legislative body. Understand this dynamic and you understand how politicians become multi-millionaires on much lesser salaries; and why ‘We The People’ are insignificant and annoying gnats to their business model.  Here’s how it works right now.

The West Has Thrown Itself Into the Waste Basket of History, by Paul Craig Roberts

Soon both the US and Europe will be glorious multicultural, Marxist states, and any threats to that order will be banished to mass graves, where unlike dead Democrats, they won’t be allowed to vote. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.com:

If courts uphold election laws, the vote fraud in the swing states will be overturned, and Trump will be declared the winner.  There is no doubt about the vote fraud. The question is whether Trump in the face of media hostility, Antifa/BLM violence, and weak-kneed Republicans will have the support to see the fight to the end.

Whoever ends up in the White House, the country is now irredeemably split. Red state Americans understand that the theft of the election is a coup against them.  They understand that white people have been demonized as racists and are becoming second class citizens in the land of the free.  It has taken them a long time to catch on, but the brazenness of the election theft and the media’s 100% coverup of the theft has brought their vulnerability as “white racists” home to them.

The problem that our country faces is that the Democrats and the media know, as well as the red states, that  the election was stolen.  They organized the theft.  They regard the theft as necessary in order to get rid of Trump, who has been demonized as racist, sexist, Russian agent, and declared by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to be a domestic enemy for refusing to accept the stolen election.

For the Democrats, media, and Antifa/BLM fascists who conduct Kristallnachts against white businesses, getting rid of Trump is more important than democratic outcomes.  The abandonment of democracy by one of the two major parties indicates that, as occurred in Rome, power is now the highest value.

Fore! by James Howard Kunstler

If you ignore the obvious election fraud and President Trump’s response to it, you can sleep soundly tonight, knowing Joe Biden is our next president. That’s what about half of America would like to do, but it’s a tad premature. From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:

Sure enough, President Donald Trump likes to get out on the golf links, which is where he was on Saturday, a most spectacularly lovely Indian Summer day following a harsh election week. Of course, his outing provoked much mirth from a gloating national news media — and, by national, I mean united in purpose — as in: look at the big fat sad golfing loser-clown we of the anointed Woke class just beat like a drum on our noble march back to power!

In their righteous raptures of perceived victory, they missed Mr. Trump’s message, which was: This is how worried I am about the final outcome of this election. He’s a daisy, our president.

The news media’s strategy here, you understand, is to overcome reality by main force — reality being that the election Joe Biden rode in on was a garbage barge of ballot fraud that is on its way to being called out. So, the newspapers and cable stations rushed to declare Mr. Biden “the winner,” with several swing states’ votes not yet completely counted, and Mr. Biden self-ratified the call, while the Woke Resistance spent the weekend partying in Covid-19 super-spreader crowds they had deplored only days earlier.

Today’s (Monday’s) New York Times is an especially rich billow of gaslight wafting over the nation, as denoted in these headlines:

The Election Is Over. The Nation’s Rifts Remain. 

President Trump Lost the Race, but Republicans Know It’s Still His Party

Biden to Restore a White House Tradition of Presidential Pets

Biden IS the Swamp, by Raúl Ilargi Meijer

A Joe Biden presidency will destroy the institution. From Raúl Ilargi Meijer at theautomaticearth.com:

Since the US has no official institution to call an election soon after the polls have closed, and people want a result fast, it has befallen on the media to make the announcement. And by and large, this hasn’t been that big a deal. But when those same media have for 4 years relentlessly hounded one of the two candidates, it should be obvious that this “system” should not be applied. If only because it has no legal status whatsoever.

However, people both in the US and abroad don’t appear to be aware of this. So when the New York Times et al declare a winner, this is seen as an “official” announcement. It is not. That won’t come until the Electoral College gathers in December (8-14th?!). And at least until then, Trump will have every right to contest the election in court. Still, “world leaders” are congratulating the “next president”. Do they really not know how this works?

The idea behind it all is obvious, of course: to make Trump look like a sore loser, and Biden the president-elect, a title the media claim they can bestow upon him. Do remember that both Biden’s and Kamala’s campaign were considered dead in the water at one point, before they were magically resurrected by the party machine, which ensured that =two people very unpopular in their own party now lead the ticket. Be careful what you wish for.

In that light. I found this intriguing. Twitter adds a warning to this Trump tweet: “Official sources may not have called the race when this was Tweeted”. I haven’t seen one instance where they attached the same warning to tweets about Biden winning and being President Elect. But wouldn’t that be the same thing?

The Parable Of Bob, by the Zman

Don’t put your faith in politics. From the Zman at theburningplatform.com:

Imagine someone living in a typical American city. We will call this guy Bob and Bob lives in the city of Metropolis. Bob is a single man living in the city, working at a job while he enjoys his youth, looks for a mate and figures out what to do with his life. Bob does not care all that much about anything else. After all, he has a decent apartment, enough money to go out on weekends and plenty of friends. Like most people starting out in the world, Bob is just a visitor passing through.

Now, Bob has a steady girl now and he is starting to think more seriously about things like where he should live, or maybe where they should live. He’s thinking about what he should do for a career, rather than a job. He’s also starting to notice the world around him a bit more. For example, the bus he takes to the subway stop is always dirty and it stinks a bit. The subway has bums and the toilets don’t work. The trash barrels are always overflowing, no matter the time of day.

Just as Bob is starting to think more about the world around him, the Mayor of Metropolis, let’s call him Mayor Dick, announces he is going to go on a listening tour around the city. He wants to know what is on people’s minds. Mayor Dick says it is time for the city listen to the people and address their issues. He will hold town hall style meetings in every neighborhood of the city. Bob decides he’s going to go to one of these meetings and tell the mayor about the transit system.

The U.S. Inability To Count Votes is a National Disgrace. And Dangerous. By Glenn Greenwald

There are any number of ways to conduct fair elections. Propose any of them and those that object the loudest are those who want to cheat. It’s no coincidence that it’s been the Democrats who have opposed virtually every measure that would make elections less subject to fraud. From Glenn Greenwald at greenwald.substack.com:

Nations far poorer and less technologically advanced have no problem holding quick, efficient elections. Distrust in U.S. outcomes is dangerous but rational.

The richest and most powerful country on earth — whether due to ineptitude, choice or some combination of both — has no ability to perform the simple task of counting votes in a minimally efficient or confidence-inspiring manner. As a result, the credibility of the voting process is severely impaired, and any residual authority the U.S. claims to “spread” democracy to lucky recipients of its benevolence around the world is close to obliterated.

At 7:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday, the day after the 2020 presidential elections, the results of the presidential race, as well as control of the Senate, are very much in doubt and in chaos. Watched by rest of the world — deeply affected by who rules the still-imperialist superpower — the U.S. struggles and stumbles and staggers to engage in a simple task mastered by countless other less powerful and poorer countries: counting votes. Some states are not expected to finished their vote-counting until the end of this week or beyond.

Don’t Panic About Politics — Here’s Where Your True Power Lies, by Joseph Mercola

Totalitarianism can be fought at the individual level. From Joe Mercola at lewrockwell.com:

This year’s presidential election is not for the faint of heart. In fact, over the past several months, mental health professionals have noted a significant uptick in anxiety and emotional distress related directly to today’s elections.

According to a survey1,2 by the American Psychology Association (APA) published October 7, 2020, 68% of Americans say the upcoming elections are a significant source of stress. Those with chronic health conditions are faring the worst, with 71% reporting feeling stressed about the elections, compared to 64% of those who do not have a chronic health condition.

A clear majority, 77% (up from 66% in 2019), also say they worry about the country’s future, and 71% say this is the lowest point in U.S. history that they can remember. As noted by the APA, uncertainty tends to foster stress, so it’s important to focus on the things that you do have control over. Recommendations provided include:

  • Avoid ruminating on worst-case scenarios
  • Engage in meaningful activities
  • Stay socially connected
  • Stay physically active

Biden family scandal: Seven uncomfortable realities confronting the Democrat nominee, by John Solomon

Joe Biden’s problems with possible corruption in Ukraine and China aren’t going away. From John Solomon at justthenews.com:

It’s not the Russians exposing Joe Biden, it’s his son’s former business partners.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has offered short, at times, halting defenses of his son Hunter’s business deals in recent weeks after months of ignoring an increasingly clear narrative of a family member pursuing lucrative business deals in the shadows of his vice presidency.

“Not one single solitary thing was out of line,” Biden said last Thursday when the questions about his son’s business dealings came up at the last presidential debate. “Not a single thing.”

“My son has not made money in terms of this thing, about what are you talking about, China,” Biden said. “I have not had, the only guy that’s made money from China is this guy,” he added, point to Donald Trump.

Other times he and his defenders have rebuffed questions about the family business as a “smear job” or “Russian disinformation.” But Biden’s campaign hasn’t disputed much of the evidence that has become public, instead declaring it doesn’t matter because no crimes have been proven.

Going Full Orwell, by James Howard Kunstler

Things are not going well for the Democrats, and they’ll probably overplay a weak hand after the election. Could a Biden victory save the clearly guilty from prosecution? From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:

Oscar Wilde observed that “life imitates art,” and there they were: the three grand poohbahs of social media, stone-facing the Senate Homeland Security Committee on their zoom screens like a trio of James Bond villains — Jack “Twitter” Dorsey, complete with sinister nose-ring and necromancer’s beard, Mark “Facebook” Zuckerberg, pasty and blank as a knish, and Sundar “Google” Pichai the Merciless. Only missing were the Persian cats in their laps.

They were on-board to answer how come their monstrous information engines were censoring the news so as to possibly influence a national election, and they offered the confabulated fantasy that their cancellation of the Biden Family influence-peddling story in The New York Post, and disabling the accounts of sundry un-Woketarian journalists, was actually a policy of “transparency.” With the election only days away, the subtext of their demeanor was a clear “Fuck you, you can’t do anything about it” to the American people.

Apparently so, but their insolence may be answered by the antitrust case lately teed up against them by the Department of Justice, especially if said election doesn’t go exactly the way they’ve attempted to engineer it. The rest of the Woke news media followed suit with the trio, of course, in an extraordinary affront to the public interest. The New York Times, CNN, and the rest of the gang completed their metamorphosis from a free press to Orwell’s memory hole, where reality goes to die.

But the Biden family grifting story has a life of its own, and the story is that the Democratic Party’s candidate for president would not survive a month in office before being dragged through some dreadful legal proceeding as a threat to national security, having sold himself to the rulers of several foreign countries, all too neatly documented to ignore.
