The Democrat Bosses Jim Taylor Moment

James Taylor: If he starts convincing those senators, you might as well blow your brains out! This is the works! Either we’re out of business or bigger than ever before. We can’t stop at anything until we’ve smashed this yokel…

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington 1939

Yesterday I wrote about the key moment in the election and possibility the history of the republic when multiple states decided to stop counting votes for an hour in order to (in my opinion) coordinate the decision to attempt to steal the election or not.

But there is an obvious question that should come to any observer: Why now?

After all elections tend to go in cycles. In my lifetime alone we saw Lyndon Johnson absolutely pulverize Barry Goldwater (1964) only to see Nixon beat Humphrey (1968) That same Nixon won 49 states (1972) and then less than four years later Jimmy Carter was in the White House (1976). Ronald Reagan was re-elected with 49 states (1984) but his VP was ousted after only one term (1992) and eight years of Bill Clinton (92 & 96) was followed by eight years of George W Bush (2000, 04) and then eight years of Obama (08,12) which was followed by President Trump’s 1st Term (16).

Why would the political bosses take the rather loud risk to steal this election and expose their operations to national scrutiny when history shows that by 2024 or 2028 they would have power back by without having to show their hand and risk the entire operation that has kept them in clover for decades?

Several things come to mind and I’ll list them in reverse order.

  1. Consultants: One of the easiest ways to make $ in the political world is to be a “consultant” or a “media buyer” in campaigns and thus get a percentage of every dollar the rubes voters contribute to your campaign. Donald Trump bypassed a lot of consultant which means their own cycle providing booze broads and drugs was gone.
  2. Patronage: Civil service laws not withstanding the 2nd biggest power of holding the White House is patronage. Not just in appointing people to jobs within government but in the revolving door to companies that do business in and with government. For four years the Democrats and to some degree the GOP have been cut off from this flow of easy cash or had access to it severely limited. Every day they can’t give a job to some idiot nephew of a member of congress or some critical lobbyist is a day their power wains.
  3. Corporate Welfare The biggest power of holding the White House is to help funnel $ to both non-profits and business that you favor. The huge tax breaks for “Green” business are a great example but the money that was flowing to Democrat “non-profits” is a better one. Those funds meant big paycheck for a lot of gender studies, environmental studies, international studies majors whose primary job was to keep democrats elected. Without such federal funds the cycle that keeps all these people in booze and broads and drugs breaks down.
  4. Foreign $ Every day that a person who is not dependent on the financial rewards of the political world is in the White House is a day where things like the Clinton Foundation funds dry up and wither. That’s bad for the people who profit off of those foreign jobs but it’s worse for foreign governments who wish to buy favorable moves by America or be rewarded by kickbacks.
  5. Big Tech: One of the biggest advantages for the left over the last few years has been the power of big tech to censor speech the left doesn’t like (see benfords’ law for a start) A 2nd Trump terms and reforms to section 230 or even the threat of same could permanently break this influence which provides a huge advantage when both pushing issue they want advanced and killing information they want buried.
  6. Inroads with People of Color: Nothing is more dangerous to the corrupt left than the proposition that Blacks and Hispanics might believe they have a choice in the parties they support. A Donald Trump re-elected with a record level of support from these groups had the potential to break the Democrat party in a permanent way. Furthermore it’s harder to steal local elections when a 90-10 split in the ethnic vote is not assumed at the start.
  7. Judges: Thanks to the end of the filibuster President Trump has filled judicial positions at a furious rate. Their decisions have already started to go down the pike even affecting the famed 9th circuit court. If this continued for another term the left’s ability to legislate by fiat could be broken for decades or more not to mention more scrutiny to shady actions that have already taken place
  8. Investigations A 2nd Trump term meant that actual investigations of the tactics used against him would take place and moreover take place in an environment where rulings on these things are likely to be made by judges appointed by President Trump. Many of these are a direct threat to very comfortable and connected people
  9. The Potential Costs of Their Failed Attempt to Steal It Unlike election 2016 where Donald Trump came out of nowhere and a lot of the standard vote fraud machinery was not put in place (why risk federal crimes on what they thought would be a blowout election?) The machines in Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Detroit and Nevada where already in place and operating. They thought they had it in the bag when the turnout & vote totals for President Trump proved to be so high as to overcome the fraud they had already committed in the race. At best that meant that their efforts would be in vain and at worst it could mean actual investigation and legislation with teeth to break them.
  10. The Rewards of Success: Almost as important as their fear of the Federal pen and the possibility of the permanent breaking of their power were the potential rewards of success in this venture. If they could openly steal the election using methods that places like the BBC and the State Department have already identified as signs of an illegitimate elections when applied elsewhere they could cement power for the party in general and themselves in particular for decades. Furthermore then knew the both the media and big tech would do all they could to allow it to happen. They would literally become the Oligarchic rulers of the richest and most powerful nation in the world. As the Devil said to Christ: “All these I shall give to you, if you will prostrate yourself and worship me” Instead of their power confined to a particular city and state it would reach across the nation and thus the world.

That’s why the die was cast. As Jim Taylor said This is the works! Either we’re out of business or bigger than ever before. They have gone all in and have put their organizations and power at stake. It’s also why I believe in the end they will resort to violence and yes even murder to prevent it’s exposure.

How we react to this will determine if we still have a republic.

“Lyndon I’ve Been to Federal Penitentiary and I’m not Going Back For You”

Captain Kidd: Well Captain Barsiliano are you satisfied?

Captain Barsiliano: I still put no trust in him.

Spitfire Stevens: Well I do and enough to give him my ship as soon as it’s re-rigged

Captain Barsiliano: No man is taking a shop out of here unless he has a rope around his neck like any known pirate. All right if he wants to sail let him sail on the Scorpion as my navigator, I have need of one and at once. When he comes back with blood on his hands he can hoist his own black flag, but not before.

Against All Flags 1952

If you have to point to one single moment on election night that could turn out to be the most fateful moment, not only of election 2020 but of the history of the republic, it would be the moment when vote counting was suddenly stopped in several states, all critical, all necessary for victory and all now the subject of charges of massive fraud.

To understand why I wish to take you back to the one election Lyndon Johnson ever lost, the special Senate election of 1942 in Texas. Johnson (unlike Joe Biden) worked incredibly hard with appearances all over the state, but had also like his chief opponent Governor Pappy O’Daniel pulled a few fast ones to get what appeared to be an insurmountable lead to the point where he allowed safe districts to be reported.

That was all O’Daniel’s friends (or rather his enemies who wanted him out of the governor’s chair) needed. Suddenly “late” returns from counties in East Texas where Congressman Martin Dies, another candidate for the open Senate seat, had previously run strong with 46% of the vote with O’Daniel getting 34% and Johnson 11% and a 4th candidate Mann 9%. As Robert Caro put it on paged 738-739 of his 1st volume on Lyndon Johnson:

But Dies did not do as well as he had done earlier. He received only 82 of these “new” votes — not 46 percent but 32 percent, Johnson and Mann didn’t do as well either: Mann received 6 votes or 2 percent; Johnson did particularly badly; he received 3 of the new votes : 1 percent. O’Daniel, who had received 34 percent on the first returns, received 64 percent on these later returns.

This pattern was repeated in county after county in east Texas where O’Daniel’s “Magic Ballots” kept turning up. Johnson manged to get a few “corrected” returns from a few spots but as official returns had been sent in such things were few and far between. He contacted George Paar known as the Duke of Duval who was the power there and bluntly asked for more votes. Duval’s reported reply: “Lyndon I’ve Been to Federal Penitentiary and I’m not Going Back For You” was logical. Because the official numbers had not come from East Texas no matter how many votes he agreed to provide O’Daniel’s folks would simply create more in counties that had not yet reported. In the end his 5000 vote lead became a 1311 vote loss 175,590 to 174,279.

And that brings us to the stopping of the vote count in those critical states.

The Democrat bosses in Nevada, in Michigan, in Wisconsin and in Pennsylvania each knew that they were capable of stealing their own state but each of them also knew that their own state would not be enough. What’s the point of stealing Nevada and or Wisconsin with it’s 10 electoral votes or even Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes if it just meant narrowing the margin of the Trump victory, especially if such a victory was followed by a federal investigation that could put them away for a very long time?

No each of them had to have blood on their hands so to speak. Each of them had to be sure that the other bosses necks would be on the line. Each of the had to be sure that they would be all in on the steal (and I suspect each of them had to be sure that the media and the tech giants would back them up, I would not be surprised if there was coordination with those folks during the pause in the count.) and I suspect only when they agreed to hang together rather than risk hanging repeatedly did the counts resume.

Now if the GOP candidate had been Mitt Romney or George W Bush or Charlie Baker or any other GOP squish, this would not be a problem (of course if any of them were running those states would likely have gone blue anyways so the point would have been moot) but alas for them the GOP candidate is President Donald Trump who has no intention of backing down. As Lou Agular puts it:

We are living out the first act of The Godfather. Remember the cliffhanger. Near Christmas, like today, five Mafia families execute a coordinated attack on Don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando), riddling him with bullets. In the immediate aftermath, there is a profound sense of doom. Everyone expects the Godfather to die, and all seems lost. Only he does not die. He lives to initiate a counterattack against the five families with his successor son, Michael (Al Pacino).

Donald Trump is the American Godfather.

This is going to the various state court and then to the Supreme Court (as whichever side loses at the state level will appeal) and might end up in the House as the GOP controls the legislatures of more than enough of the disputed states to send their own set of electors to the house. All of these are going to be tough on the furniture so to speak

I hate to say it and I dread the possibility but it may even end in actual blood as it’s unhealthy to convince a group of people who have been arming themselves to the teeth for over a decade that participating in the democratic process is a waste of time, particularly when sitting members of congress on the left are openly talking of blacklisting and punishing those who voted against them. If it reaches the state legislature phase I would not be shocked to see Antifa style mobs going after legislators in season and finding them selves countered by armed citizens. That’s a recipe for bloodshed which I’d not like to see but the folks who stopped those counts decided was worth risking (spoiler alert it wasn’t).

But no matter how it eventually ends badly or bloody or both the moment in history which precipitated whatever ending comes will be the one when those states decided to stop counting so the bosses could decide if they were going all in.

Michael Forest Reinoehl has now proved, without a shadow of a doubt, that when wanted for crimes of violence or any other the Rittenhouse methodTM of not getting shot by police is the way to go.


Let’s put the awkward issues of logistics aside and talk tactics, though professionals always think logistics while amateurs only think tactics.

As a general rule you should always read Kurt Schlichter, he’s smart, he’s funny, and he tears apart the left but this is the most informative piece he’s ever written


FINALLY, a reader emailed, “Hi Don. A few weeks ago I realized that BLM stands for Bitter Little Marxists

Analysis True.


 NFL shouldn’t be propping up a criminal rapist when the organization itself has a domestic violence problem.

Via Victory Girls Blog

Actually given the criminal and domestic violence history in the NFL it’s actually pretty on brand.


 Voters should not be deprived of their constitutional right to vote nor should their vote be cancelled by an illegally cast vote.

Via Right Wing Granny

Since the day after the election of 2016 I’ve been saying Trump needs to go after voter fraud.


Can anyone deny that all the terrible things we’ve seen this year have supernatural sources? Well, I suppose they could, but I adamantly disagree.

I think the Democrat/Antifa/Media Marxist left aren’t the real enemy, they just work for him.
