Radix Journal had this to say about the debate:

Trump Won the Night

September 27, 2016
by Hateful Heretic

Donald Trump's debate performance was certainly not the fireworks spectacle many of us were hoping it would be. Hillary opened herself up to verbal kill shots a number of times, and Trump largely ignored them. For example, on the topic of cybersecurity, all Trump really needed to say was, "The most important step we can take is to vigorously prosecute any government official who uses an illegal, private server to transmit classified data. US law is clear: Intent does not matter. We cannot have our highest officials recklessly---and that's FBI director James Comey's word---disregarding our national security so they can hide their communications from the government."

That would have been fun, right?

Here's the thing, though. Everyone who could possibly be attracted to Trump's bullyciding of establishment politicians is already voting for Trump. If you were disappointed that Trump didn't go harder after Hillary, you've probably got at least one MAGA hat in each available color already. This debate wouldn't and couldn't sway you.

The reality is there are no "undecided voters." There's no one out there who still hasn't made up his mind on whether it would be better to have amnesty for illegals or a wall on the border. There's no group of people waiting to hear one last argument before they decide whether they want more solar panel subsidies or deep cuts to the business tax. In fact, if you're the sort of person who types "radixjournal.com" into your URL bar, Trump doesn't need to win your vote. He already has it.

An "undecided" is a person who has not made up his mind on whether or not he's going to vote at all. He tells everyone who wants to hear that he's undecided because he likes to feel like an even-handed, objective person. What he needs is not a convincing argument, but enough material to rationalize heading to the polls on Nov 8 instead of staying home.
Those people fall into a few groups:
  1. White working class voters who distrust Republicans in general.
  2. That 15% of black voters that thinks highly of the police.
  3. Socially acceptable Republicans who don't want to feel like they're choosing a crazy buffoon over a corrupt sociopath.
There are probably more groups, but those are the main ones. Trump's strategy last night was to look like an ordinary person. Fortunately for him, the media has set the bar so incredibly low with the constant Hitler comparisons that all he really needed to do was show that he's not a screaming madman with a god-complex, and he did that.

The voters I described are persuaded more by pathos than logos. Hillary's ability to rattle off talking points won nothing with them. Trump, by contrast, appeared warm, genuinely concerned, and passionate about trade, the decay of the Rust Belt (he called out swing states in that region by name), and crime in the inner cities. People will not remember what either candidate said. They will remember how the candidates made them feel.

I think Trump won last night because he showed the right kind of face to the people that need to be convinced. If his momentum continues upward, it proves he did.

The Debate

The best analysis of the Presidential debate last night was presented as a comment to an American Thinker article. I present it in full, as he says it so perfectly there is virtually nothing for me to add:


"Confession: I did not watch the debate because I knew the outcome and did not want to see it unfold in real time. Knew Lester would be Hillary's servant. The white lady on the plantation had him trained well.

Knew Donald would be "spontaneous" (prepped as if this were another primary debate and not an animal of an entirely different stripe), knew she would be coiffed, canned, buffed, stuffed, propped, programmed, and smug with her superiority. Knew he would be walking on eggshells, careful to avoid validating the image the left has painted of him.

Therefore he would be hesitant to "go there" and come across as an unhinged bomb thrower. The left painted a caricature of him before he set one foot on the stage and he was crippled because he had that to overcome.

One more thing: she, in her debate years ago with Rick Lazio for the New York Senate seat played the helpless women victim card by portraying Lazio, a fine gentleman, as a sexist and a threat for daring to walk over to her podium and ask her to sign a pledge. She stood there playacting the part of a woman whose safety was momentarily threatened by a nasty man who was seen overpowering the space of a helpless female.

Don't for a moment think that tactic wasn't remembered by Trump who was trying not to give her that result so it could be trumpeted today all over social media and by the reptiles in the press. So Trump has had his baptism by fire. He got the lay of the land so to speak.

 The dynamics were noted and the rules of the game on display. If the RNC weren't sharing one brain amongst all of them, they would insist they have their OWN moderator at the next debate. Or at the very least, a co-moderator who will balance out the bias and the rank deceit. No debate takes place until that happens. Prince Reibus should be put on notice."

Quote of the Day


"Satan walks the earth. By the name Allah. Through the agency of muzlims."


— Gabriel Winchester

My Plan to Get Minorities Off the Plantation

Watching with frustration the failing efforts of the Right to explain to blacks* why the Democrats are bad for them, I've come up with a plan.

We've been going about this all wrong. We're banging our heads against a wall of corruption, lies, ignorance of history, and stupidity.

We need to be smarter...and use them, not fight them.

What we need to do is start aggressively promoting all their pet positions and programs as WHITE RACISTS. In other words, we support & like them because they are so bad for blacks.

For Example:

We need to explain in giddy detail why we support generational welfare, because we can have those "niggers" right where we want them, under our control, unable to choose their own destiny, make their own decisions, create their own futures. Blacks dependent means blacks under our control. It's the New Slavery...and we like it.

We need to explain with delight why we support bad schools, because ignorant blacks are easier to manipulate and control, and we like it that way.

We need to explain with laughter why we support riots and looting in black "protests"...where they destroy their own neighborhoods and then have to live in the ruins left over.

We need to exclaim the wonders of abortion among blacks and tell them it's because if they keep killing off their little black babies, pretty soon they'll all die out, and we won't have to deal with them anymore. And every racist White Person will celebrate when blacks are extinct in America.

We need to support and foster strict gun-control in Democrat-run cities, explaining that we like it when law-abiding blacks, especially children, are murdered in the 100's every year by thugs who don't obey gun laws...and if they continue to kill each other off...the fewer of them will infect our society...and....every racist White Person will celebrate when blacks are extinct in America.


We need to demand segregation (like blacks are actually doing in colleges today!), but make sure to tell them it's because we don't want THEM infesting OUR spaces.

We should agree that they should not have to be subjected to the brutality of the POLICE, and demand that, to that purpose, no Police or other emergency personnel shall be allowed to enter black areas, neighborhoods or segregated buildings, even if called.


You see....if WHITE RACISTS support and approve of all these things, maybe blacks will reconsider whether they're actually good for them. And wouldn't THAT be a good idea?
 
Let's face it, arguing in their best interests isn't working. It's time we tried another strategy.

From Firearms Instructor

Our Media’s Agendum: “Resistance is Futile”

Curious the way our leftist media interminably wrings their hands over the difficulty, indeed impossibility, of accurately predicting random Islamic terrorist bombings, as just occurred in NY an NJ.


Simultaneously, they are silent about the hero off-duty LEO, properly and legally armed and carrying concealed, who courageously stepped forward and decisively ended the Islamic terrorist slabbing spree in MN, doubtless saving  many lives.


Both the bombing incidents and stabbing spree happened at about the same 
time, in different parts of the Country.


Yet, the media chooses to focus completely upon the false belief of universal helplessness, insisting that “resistance is futile,” rather than the promise and dramatic success created by this one brave, and armed,  citizen.
 

The media should be enthusiastically heaping praise upon this brave American, as an inspiration and encouragement for us all, with the joyous message of, “Yes, we can effectively fight back!”
 

But no, he is not even mentioned. Instead, the media focuses  exclusively upon ecumenical hopelessness, reflecting their own dreary, defeatist  ethos! Our leftist media is determined never to portray guns, particularly when carried concealed, in a positive manner. Brave Americans, in and out of uniform, who own and carry guns can be assured they will ever be censured and denigrated by the media, no matter the circumstances.  

The MN incident is a typical example!


“If we lived in a state where virtue were profitable, common sense would make us saints! But, since we see that abhorrence, anger, pride, and stupidity commonly profit far beyond charity, modesty, justice, and thought, perhaps we must stand fast a little, even at the risk of being heroes”

Gun Control

Either they MEAN it, or they don't.

They can't have it both ways.

If calling for the disarming of Hillary is asking for her to get attacked, why isn't calling for the disarming of Americans asking for US to get attacked?

A tiny little crowd turns out for Hillary at Temple University...and a wise-ass commenter (my favorite kind) says in the comment section:

Do You Hear the People Sing?

Because I have never seen Le Mis (I know, I'm such a Philistine) I did not know the words to this song when Trump played it at his rally with the graphic from the play, overlaid with American flags an American eagle, and "Les Deplorables".


I loved that the name of the song was "Do You Hear The People Sing" because it sounded so appropriate to Donald's campaign of reaching out to We The People. But I had no idea just how perfect that song is:

Here are the lyrics:

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of angry men?
It is the music of the people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes.

Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?

Then join in the fight
That will give you the right to be free!!

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men
?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

Will you give all you can give
So that our banner may advance
Some will fall and some will live
Will you stand up and take your chance?
The blood of the martyrs
Will water the meadows of France
!

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes


I'm such a sap, they actually make me tear up...when applied to our situation...a nation tottering on the brink, with the only hope a Donald Trump presidency.

Is there is some kind of destiny at work here? Such an unlikely hero. From his golden tower, riding in to lead us to salvation and restoration...

Too much? Over the top? Too melodramatic? Don't care. It's exactly how I feel. And I think all of us Deplorables feel pretty much the same way.

*Review of Hillary Clinton's Book,  Stronger Together

Lava Lamp (you'll understand in a minute)

I wasn't going to do this. I gave you the link, and I tried to leave well enough alone. But I just couldn't. I had to preserve this one on my blog for me...and share it with you.

This is an Amazon review of Hillary Clinton's book, Stronger Together.

"This book is an enlightening look at how Hillary is stronger as a result of her team. Since she is medically decrepit and can no longer stand on her own, she relies on the puppet strings pulled by George Soros. When she has a seizure and passes out in a gutter, the secret service is there to pick her up and buckle her into her giant car seat in her Vanbulance. Friendly staff are always there to give her lozenges and glasses of water when she has coughing fits. She coughs up so much phlegm, she can instantly turn a glass of water into a lava lamp. At the upcoming Presidential debates, she'll be sporting a lovely helmet, to prevent any further brain damage. This is necessary, because she has already declared war on Pepe, the green cartoon Mexican frog, who she thinks stands for white supremacy in the USA. When found jeopardizing National Security, her connections in the FBI and Justice Department are there to lend a hand. With her connections, Hillary is definitely stronger.

"If you cover up a few letters the title reads ST_ON_E_ ___HER, which is a polite nod to our friends who practice Sharia Law and kill women who are suspected of adultery by hurling stones at them until they are bludgeoned to death."


—Poisoned Blade

Reviews of Hillary

You have got  to read the Amazon reviews of Hillary's book, Stronger Together. 

They are hillaryous!

It warms the heart to see so many Americans with so much intelligence, humor and talent write what must be the funniest collection of reviews ever on Amazon, totally dissing Queen Hillary.

You can find them here.

Here's one...that isn't funny (most of them are intensely clever) but most informative:

HILLARY is for children... except for the little girl raped by Hillary's client--when asked about the case, Hillary laughed heartily at how she'd got the guilty man off.

HILLARY is for women...except for the dozen or so women raped by Bill Clinton that she deliberately denigrated and destroyed for daring to expose the truth about him.


HILLARY is for feminists...except she sells out women for Tens Of Millions Of Dollars from Islamic Governments that treat women like chattel and worse than their camels.


HILLARY is for supporting her staff... except for the Americans on her State Department staff, massacred on 9/11 in Benghazi.


HILLARY is for the truth... except for all the times she has lied to the American people to protect herself and her own interests.


HILLARY is for Gays & Lesbians... except for the Gays & Lesbians in Islamic countries where their Governments torture and kill them, all while buying her off for Tens Of Millions Of Dollars.


HILLARY is for putting America first... except for the Hundreds of Millions of dollars she received from Foreign Governments to put them first.


HILLARY is for transparency... except for the lies about Benghazi, the lies about her foundation, the lies about Whitewater, the lies about her illicit commodity trading, the lies about her secret private server, and the lies about the 33,000 emails she used the program, BleachBit to erase after they were subpoenaed by the FBI and Congress.


HILLARY is for Blacks and Jews, except that the anti-Black and anti-Jewish Grand Kleagle of the Klu Klux Klan, Robert Byrd, was her mentor, while disparaging Israel in favor of the Palestinian terrorist organizations, and she openly admires the well-known anti-Black racist eugenicist Margret Sanger who sought to ethnically cleanse the United States of Blacks through Planned Parenthood.


HILLARY is for standing up against Rich Wall St Bankers... except for the Rich Wall St Bankers at Goldman Sachs that buy her for $250,000.00 for a 30 minute speech and then she refuses to release the transcripts.


HILLARY is for all Americans... except for the 100 Million American deplorables that don't support her.

Good ammo for the inevitable conversation...

Hillary and the Little People...

Hillary Clinton and her campaign are stealing from their poorest donors. You will not believe this.

Oh...sorry...it's about Hillary Clinton commiting crimes for money. You'll COMPLETELY believe it.

Check it out: Exclusive: Hillary Clinton Campaign Systematically Overcharging Poorest Donors.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make what’s supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website, multiple sources tell the Observer.

The overcharges are occurring so often that the fraud department at one of the nation’s biggest banks receives up to 100 phone calls a day from Clinton’s small donors asking for refunds for unauthorized charges to their bankcards made by Clinton’s campaign. One elderly Clinton donor, who has been a victim of this fraud scheme, has filed a complaint with her state’s attorney general and a representative from the office told her that they had forwarded her case to the Federal Election Commission.

“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,” a source, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of job security, from the Wells Fargo fraud department told the Observer. The source claims that the Clinton campaign has been pulling this stunt since Spring of this year. The Hillary for America campaign will overcharge small donors by repeatedly charging small amounts such as $20 to the bankcards of donors who made a one-time donation. However, the Clinton campaign strategically doesn’t overcharge these donors $100 or more because the bank would then be obligated to investigate the fraud.

God I hate her.

MAGA!

What You Get When You Do What You Did

This  is a response to "Ashley" who in the comments section of a Breitbart article condescendingly insulted the person and mission of Mother Teresa, in accordance with the opinion of that great humanitarian, Christopher Hitchens.

 Enjoy.


The quotation referred to, which "Ashley" presents as evidence to prove her claim that Mother Teresa was a sociopath who actually imposed suffering on her patients, is this:


"There is something beautiful in seeing the poor accept their lot, to
suffer it like Christ’s Passion. The world gains much from their
suffering,” -Mother Teresa

 


By "The Messy Lunch":

"You present an arbitrary quote from Mother Teresa that is completely divorced from its original context and brandish it in a comments section as if you were some sort of revelatory force --some insightful detective shining the radiant light of your "Gotcha!" discovery for those you deem inferior to you. What insipid tomfoolery indeed.

In fact, you're the most garden-variety dullard imaginable, because (like most of your ilk) you haven't the capacity for critical thinking or objective comprehension. Moreover, you are grotesquely uninformed about your subject ... just like your intellectually palsied leader, Vanity Fair columnist and pseudo-intellectual Christopher Hitchens, who could never see very far beyond the gin-blossoms dotting his nose.

Also like Hitchens, you are an embittered, nihilistic, philosophically emaciated little dilettante. For you, scoring "imaginary" points with falsehoods in a comments section gives you the same sort of thrill that Hitchens's the sybarite achieved via sheer gluttony at one of his food and ilicit sex-fueled dinner parties.

Everything you said about Mother Teresa is a falsehood. Every link you provided to the dismally discreditable & neurotic Huffington Post BLOG (and elsewhere) is a laughable distortion.

Mother Teresa did not operate her order or attend to her flock alone. She was assisted by thousands of nuns and volunteers from all walks of life and spiritual backgrounds, all of whom rendered the exact same service to the poor.

That service was the immediate *alleviation* of the suffering of anyone she and her sisters/helpers could get their hands upon in the streets of the uncaring world. Period. Immediate alleviation. Immediate and constant cleaning, bathing, nursing, loving, comforting, medical treatment, rehabilitation, and longterm care for those who survived and desired it.

Always. So long as it could be managed. Her ministry likewise encompassed the establishment of orphanages, schools for adults and children, hospitals, adoption of unwanted children, and, indeed, homes for the dying --for those with only an hour, or perhaps a day to live. Have you ever bathed a terminally ill human being lifted from a cesspit ditch? Washed the maggots from their wounds, cleaned their bodies, gave them fresh linen, and a comforting smile that might enable them to die with dignity? Of course you have not.

Teresa's quote about the poor was taken out of context by you, who know nothing of the meaning of her words, nothing of her spirituality. She knew that the thousands upon thousands of destitutes living in the slums around her in Kolkata could not all be whisked into some middle-class existence as if by magic. Therefore she saw to immediate needs --needs of alleviation-- and yet had the goodness of heart to remark that she was inspired by how happy even the poorest of the poor could be in their squalor. How much joy even the most forgotten and marginalized of humans could show to others, despite their almost unfathomable circumstances in abject poverty.

She saw what you are unable to even countenance, for all your dime-store, brain-addled, bourgeois prattling: hope. She saw hope, and acted upon it.

You, "Ashley," are a dark and fetid stain upon this earth. You are a small-minded and deliberately deceptive degenerate--not content with the malfeasance of your own warped thinking, but frothing like a rabid dog to spread the disease of your willful ignorance. And you do it for pleasure, which, by the way, makes you a sadist. Although I am sure Mother Teresa herself would have kind words for you, I, however, am no saint, and do not feel thus obligated.

You are the willing adherent of a corpulent, disreputable liar (Hitchens) and your words are as meager as the intellect you are trying so desperately --and failing-- to burnish with tawdry falsehoods.

The intensive psychological/medical help you need is beyond my capacity to deliver, but I can set you straight about these matters, here and now, without rolling out of bed. Literally. My morning coffee is waiting and you're not worth another word, though you more than deserve the ones I've given you already, propped here against my pillow.

May you reap exactly what you sow, Ashley ... but I wouldn't want to be in your field around harvest-time."

_______________________

I'm not necessarily a big fan of Mother Teresa, but I'm pretty sure her goal in life wasn't to cause pain and suffering to those she ministered to. I present this because of the beauty of the language, and the beautiful, summary dismissal of this little troll "Ashley", who swanned into the conversation, climbing up on several boxes and a rickety chair so she could look down her nose at the rest of the participants.
