Epic Theatre

Whatever the outcome might be, the current US election has become an extended thriller, with plot twists coming thick and fast. Every day brings something new. And it’s set to run for another two months. The suspense is unbearable.

I’m hoping that Trump wins. I think he’s the best US president of the last 50 years, maybe the best president ever. I’m not even critical of his bombast or his language, as many others are. Trump is a phenomenon.

But the pundits are divided.

My favorite pundit is the ever-optimistic Steve Turley, who is predicting Trump’s re-election. Here’s his last couple of videos:

By contrast Laura Ingraham on Fox News is a pessimist who thinks Trump has lost:

Who to believe?

None of them.

The pundits are also players in an unfolding plot that rivals the Watergate affair (which I can remember).

But it’s great theatre.

I’m going to be feeling dazed and empty when it’s over, like after watching some epic movie.

Except it’s not a movie: it’s history being written.

    This filth and hate from Left will shock you but we get it non-stop – MP PHILIP DAVIES
    Nov 24, 2020

    “I apologise for the graphic language used here, but these were just a tiny sample of some of the emails I received over one single weekend: “Here’s hoping you drop dead. We, never elected an out-of-touch w**k stain such as yourself. Tory scum, f**k you!”

    “When I started out in politics – which isn’t that long ago in the scheme of things – political opponents would say “I disagree with you”. Now people will say “I disagree with you – and you are evil, I hope your children grow up to hate you and you die a horrible death”.

    “When it comes to politics, we shouldn’t mistake this for people being genuinely upset and angry. This is different – it is co-ordinated and concerted abuse and a very deliberate strategy. They know what they’re doing and it has two purposes.

    First, they want to discredit and smear their opponents so that people will not listen to them, respect them or vote for them.

    In doing that they serve the second clear purpose – to ensure that nobody else ever dares to speak out against their particular stance.”

    It has a curious similarity to what we experienced, could it be the same people?

    “Well, you can relax folks. All this time, it was not your next door neighbor, co-worker, friend or relative who was turning into an aggressive “Mr. Hyde” when protected by the cover of anonymity. We now have tangible proof that most of the people who are posting obnoxious and hateful material are simply following orders from the anti-tobacco industry:

    Interestingly, in the following paragraph they acknowledge that there are in fact authentic citizens (labeled as angry smokers) expressing themselves and that it is not the tobacco industry and their ‘’front groups’’ who are doing the complaining. Furthermore, they are acknowledging that most non-smokers don’t complain leaving us to conclude that indeed most of what we read in the various media must therefore be plants of the tobacco control industry.”

    There unfortunately seems minimal evidence that Trump is or was a particularly effective President, as developing sound public policy is always necessarily a process of iteration to arrive at the “least worst” solutions (J S Mill greatest good for the greatest number), and polarising opposing views is divisive. Deficient leadership panders to the extremes, like rabid tobacco prohibitionists, without explaining the reasoning as to who gets what and why, the only difference between various parties of the kleptocracy (they only differ in priorities for redistribution of public funds from taxation). There also seems to be scant information the Trump administration understands due process and the rule of law. Without the support of Congress, Presidential executive orders can be run through the shredder and replaced, as occurred with many of those issued by the mostly ineffectual Obama administration.

    Might I recommend Thomas Wictor on YouTube before he is booted off again as he has been off Twitter. You can tell who is getting close by those who are censored.

    I suspect that we won’t be feeling dazed and empty when it’s over, because it won’t be over, something else will start, and we have no idea what. All we can say by now, it’s some kind of monumental change, but I’m not sure at all if it will be a change for the worse. Well, look at the 60s, when all things were happening everywhere all at once, then we entered a kind of a golden age, then… etc.

    So the CIA, the dead dictator Hugo Chavez, Clinton, and the Spanish government are in this big conspiracy which would involve thousands of people who ALL shut up and keep the secret?

    Dear Mr Davis

    The term limit means that a president is more likely to do something drastic in his second term, simply because re-election is no longer an issue. A maverick like President Trump is thus a huge danger to the established and entitled interests of the deep state – the people who have become accustomed to living freely and lavishly off the taxpayer.

    A second Trump term must therefore be stopped at all costs, even if the electoral process of the United States of America is reduced to that of a banana republic.
