One of the big signs that the worm as turned in this election is the panic and depression on the faces of members of the MSM. I haven’t seen anything like it since the elections of 2010 first of Scott Brown and then the big red wave. While I think the defeat of Hillary is vital for the country I think most conservatives will get much more satisfaction from their discomfort then Trump’s win, if it happens.

The thing that I think is most discouraging to the press has been trump’s unwillingness to make a vital error and (to this point anyways) to stay on message during this week. This is in stark contrast to the Hillary campaign at this point. That’s a real sign of panic and nothing is more contagious or deadly to any enterprise.

While I think the cumulative effect of the wikileaks and Project Veritas helped move the polls I think the real advantage has been to illustrate the tactics of the left so that the normal counters that the left would use to counter his news, making them completely ineffective. That being said I’m shocked that as of this writing there hasn’t been one last November Surprise coordinated by the MSM and the Clintons. I don’t think waiting till Sunday night is a good idea, if they have something to play it’s got to be now.

My wife has been on a “Hallelujah” kick lately and if you go to YouTube you will find all kinds of version of that song from Susan Boyle

To Pentatonix

to the original songwriter Leonard Cohen.

It’s a good song but the more I think about it the reason I think it has caught on so well on a gut level, is man has an instinctive thirst for God and “Hallelujah” means “praise the Lord”.

One of my pet peeves is the argument by some that Slavery was not the driving force behind the Civil war. This can be disproved by looking at any newspapers from the 1840’s to the 1860’s but thanks to Prager U I don’t have to make that argument alone:

There were other factors but they meant little compared to slavery.

I’ve never stopped arguing that the pro-abortion argument is the same as the pro-slavery argument, if you don’t like Abortion/Slavery don’t have/own one. Or I’m personally opposed to Abortion/slavery but don’t want to forbid it or can’t see how to do it. Both of those arguments are equally morally shallow.

Stacy McCain continues to write about modern feminism and it’s Marxist/Wiccan roots but in the end a philosophy that rejects the normal rules of reproduction is doomed because nothing makes a philosophy obsolete then the failure of those who espouse it to breed.

One of the real pleasant surprises this week was walking into the doors at work at 10:30 PM with the score of game 7 of the Cubs vs the Indians 6-3 and discovering that the game wasn’t over when my first break came around at 12:30 AM allowing me to listen to the last 1/2 inning that proved to be just as exciting as the rest of the game. While at least one baseball fan in my family disagrees on the greatness of the game due to some really poor decisions by the Cubs’ manager I think that the greatness of the game was not lessened by the mistakes. Baseball like all sports is entertainment and I haven’t been so entertained by a game 7 in decades.

Speaking of pleasant surprises this week’s Big Bang Theory was excellent and entertaining. You would think that after 10 years the ideas would be running thin but the quality has kept up. I think the show could run another 2 years or more easy if the cast remains willing to do it.

In two weeks the Animated version of Power of the Daleks, one of the missing Dr. Who episodes, introducing the 2nd doctor will premiere on BBC America. I’m anxious to see it but am surprised that it took nearly 30 years for the BBC to decide this is a good idea, although it is possible that they figured they didn’t want to go through the expense in case any of those episodes turned up. I suspect if the rating are good (and they will be) we will see the rest of the missing episodes done.

The Wikileaks, the FBI investigation, the complicit politicians, the media. Many of us are paying attention to the news. Several are making The case against Hillary Clinton,

The record shows, again and again, lies, secrecy and duplicitousness deployed as means to the ends of amassing wealth and power.

Despite her well-padded resume and long proximity to power, Hillary Clinton’s illegal actions, abuse of office, secretive, undemocratic instincts and low character render her unfit to serve as President of the United States.

It is no hyperbole to say that the Clintonian corruption reaches Russian proportions,

As the New York Times reported, “As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.” The seller, “Frank Giustra … a mining financier, has donated $31.3 million to the foundation…”

And, speaking of ties to Russia, Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for a speech, part of which is thought to have come from the Russian government. Vladimir Putin showed his thanks by attending the speech.

As Peter Schweitzer, author of the expose “Clinton Cash,” noted, WikiLeaks e-mails provide proof that the “Clintons have a long and lucrative history of financial deals with the Russians, particularly with the Russian government.”

Breitbart has photos of Bill giving his speech at Renaissance Capital; On April, 2015, the New York Times, not exactly what one could call an arm of The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy™, reported on how Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal (emphasis added),

Renaissance Capital would not comment on the genesis of Mr. Clinton’s speech to an audience that included leading Russian officials, or on whether it was connected to the Rosatom deal. According to a Russian government news service, Mr. Putin personally thanked Mr. Clinton for speaking.

But never mind the Russians. As Roger Kimball points out,

at last count, there were five, count ’em five, FBI investigations into the machinations of the money factory known as the Clinton Foundation


what is downright scary is way the Clintons have been willing to trade away legitimate environmental concerns and even our national security for the sake of filthy lucre.

No matter who wins the election, the fact remains that the culture that facilitated the Clinton’s corrupt doings will remain in place, a culture that will destroy the foundation of our country, unless we as a nation commit to fight against it.

That is the real challenge of our times.

Galaxy Quest 1999

We have been assured by our friends in media and government that there is no such thing as voter fraud, that the revelations of project veritas are something to be ignored and anyone who believes this kind of thing is at best a conspiracy theorist or at worst disloyal to the republic.

So when a story like this turns up:

The 83 ballots, each unused, were addressed to different people, all supposedly living in his elderly neighbor’s two-bedroom apartment.

“I think this is spooky,” Mosna said. “All the different names, none we recognize, all at one address.”

His wife, Madalena Mosna, noted their 89-year-old neighbor lives by herself, and, “Eighty people can’t fit in that apartment.”

They took the ballots to the Los Angeles Police Department, but were directed to the post office. They felt little comfort there would be an investigation, and called another neighbor, John Cracchiolo – who contacted the Los Angeles County Registrar’s office. 

A spokeswoman for the Registrar said the office will investigate.

Instead of seeing it as proof of voter fraud confirming that republicans in general and Donald Trump in particular have to not only win, but do so beyond the margin of fraud, we must, as Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes has taught us, presume that when the impossible (That is the idea that this might be voter fraud, which our betters in media and government assure us is impossible) is eliminated, what remains, no matter how improbable, must be true.

Therefore I conclude that while the Mosna’s might think their elderly neighbor is living in a two bedroom apartment that couldn’t fit 89 people, the reality is that their neighbor in fact has a TARDIS which has taken the shape of an ordinary 2 bedroom apartment with 89 people (or more if you include potential non votes) living there and if someone actually visited the apartment and opened the door it would go something like this:

I would advise keeping a close eye on their “elderly” neighbor in case she is suddenly replaced by a younger version that seems a tad confused at first. That’d be the clincher!

I mean to think otherwise would mean not only that there is systematic voter fraud out there, but that those in charge of sending out ballots in the US postal service might have a policy of forbidding postal workers from reporting this kind of anomaly when processing or delivering said ballots and that the knowledge of this kind of thing is a lot more widespread than anyone wants to admit.

And that’s just crazy isn’t it?
