Biden 2

You have been warned.

Even if by a conservative sky news presenter!

As the wide eyed woke will remind us there was no president John McCain, instead there were 8 (long) years of dithering Obama. The Syrian people well remember what this dithering meant for them. The liberal media have literally shepherded the do nothing but stop Bernie candidate – Joe I’m losing my faculties fast Biden – passed all pressure and the hounding that is reserved for Trump. But ‘I lasted longest and did less’ Biden is now only a seat warmer for an even more shocking example of woke in the form of the rank opportunist Harris.

Trump upset too many people and the US masses have a short attention span, and the western world’s liberal dominated media has been on a full throttle anti-Trump crusade.  I say they have won this round and unfortunately there really is an ‘ impending return of liberal domination of US politics. I also agree that the liberals are both self-servicing and fantasizing about Trump, and now are ‘even more thoroughly corrupt and disconnected from the people than ever’! Of course with NO left ALL opposition ‘will still be from the right.’ and it must also be remarked that against this deluge of liberal twaddle the rightists will be far closer to the concerns of working people.

 

But can or will a defeated Trump…’ retain leadership of a large right wing party loudly convinced that the election was stolen by the corrupt liberal elite.’? Short answer; no.

The first better question I have is why would he – a narcissist- even bother to stick with his supporters and keep a party going? Why wouldn’t he just move on as is usual for such people? What’s in it for Trump? Does anyone think that he will hang around at the top of a political party and conduct a struggle to again contest for the presidency in 4 years time? That’s a possibility of course but a very long shot possibility that I’m not currently buying. I doubt he would win such a long term quest for a second term and I think he will most probably ‘retire’ to just being Trump. There is also, most importantly, no one in the wings to anoint so the party that had really only one purpose ought to just drift and end because it lacks a raison d’etre.

Around what and who would a ‘consolidation of a far right mass based party in the USA’ take place? Pence? Quite obviously not. Trump after the election may well just be yesterday’s man going nowhere and leading nothing as is usual. This is more like his predicament especially at his age but never say never and of course he would take advantage of an opportunity if it looked like being a going concern at the time. Who can say what the world will look like in 3 years time.  I may doubt but…

Even if ‘the “stab in the back” legend has a powerful appeal on the right and we will still be stuck with a weak inept ruling class and no left wing opposition.’ my next question is so what? The republican party will have to patch itself together while the Trump party disintegrates.
I didn’t call the last US election correctly, but I have had a good record over the years for picking up on the bigger issues and so I’ll stick my neck out and stay with my earlier prediction.  It’s now less than 2 weeks out and I still predict a Trump loss in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, so Biden will win the election; and the win will be quite clear so there will be no drama at all to speak of and a ‘gracious’ hand over will take place as usual. Trump will have got his pick for the court and the Democrats will NOT stack the court in retaliation! It’s all just bluff, because in the long run that would badly damage the Democrat brand.

What I can’t possibly know and yet what my gut is telling me are that the players are assuming this win and now people can only pray and live in desperate hope that enough people can’t be that foolish as to actually vote for the ham sandwich. But that hope is utterly misplaced.

People will find they are waking up ‘free of Trump’ BUT in a woke madness with soon to be POTUS Harris wide eyed and hovering around sleepy Joe on every occasion.

Can’t see Biden lasting 2 years and Harris will be very prominent from the word go. Harris is a shocker like Obama but easily able to fool enough democrats to make that party the plaything of what are now properly considered as the global warming elite whack jobs, and they are going to deliberately destroy Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin! It will be a couple of years before the working class wakes up to the horror; but wake up to it they will.

8 long years of the look off into the distance phony Obama will probably not get a replay!

Give me a narcissistic outsider rocking the boat against this horror outcome any day. Not as clear a choice as that between McCain and Obama but nevertheless just as real. The damage that the woke democrats are about to let loose is head-shaking in its implications.

Biden’s minders have kept him out of the spotlight long enough and the gods of fate have done the rest.

So when the answer is Trump the question is horrible because without a doubt Trump is a better bet than Harris/Biden. This is not Tweedledee or Tweedledum and undoubtedly the world would be better off with Trump than Harris/Biden. The world is faced with the disaster of another term of the Obama types running the US and Harris knows Biden is suffering a worsening dementia condition and that he certainly will have to hand over to her. She is currently ‘measuring up the drapes’.

Right now the biggest threats to the world’s working class peoples’ are Putin style fascism, and ABC/BBC type woke madness. We have seen it with the issues of war and peace that Obama was so useless in dealing with and that Trump continued to be pretty hopeless with. The 2nd time round in the shape of Harris will be even worse!

A comparable period is prior to WW2 or even WW1 as all the powers mill about with regional wars pointing to the bigger issues. Just as the anti-communist aristocrat Churchill was the answer to the vicious and strategically disastrous war-making of the appeasers Trump is a better bet but….

Gutter snipe all you want Geoffrey Robertson QC

Gutter snipe all you want Geoffrey Robertson QC but you are on our side now!!

Last night (20/10/2014) I saw this on the ABC Lateline program.

EMMA ALBERICI: You were against the 2003 Iraq invasion, but you support the fight against Islamic State. What’s the difference?

GEOFFREY ROBERTSON: Correct. Well, in a sense there’s a link because if we had obeyed the law, we wouldn’t have overthrown the Baathist regime in 2003 in Iraq, which – and underneath that stone, once it was rolled over, crept all these horrific fighting groups and the latest one of them being ISIS. So it may well be that ISIS wouldn’t be with us if we’d obeyed the law, and let’s face it, there were only four who didn’t. There was George Bush, who wanted to kill the man who had – he thought had threatened his father. There was Tony Blair, who went in because he thought the British could restrain the Americans. There was that Spanish President whose name I forget. He reminded me of Manuel in Fawlty Towers. I think he’s now been made a member of News Corp board. And there was Johnny Howard, who perhaps didn’t look at the law or had forgotten it or never studied it when he became a solicitor. But it was a bad mistake to go in to overthrow Saddam Hussein and we are now left with ISIS and we have to deal with it. We have an obligation to deal with it, I think, because it is committing genocide. It is certainly committing war crimes and crimes against humanity and that engages international attention. There was no crime against humanity or genocide being committed by Saddam. He committed genocide in 1988 against the Kurds, but the world turned a blind eye to that. And so we have a duty, I think, to go in. I don’t think air strikes is going to solve of the problem. The problems are extremely deep and will take a lot of solving and we have problems in our own backyard with returning members of ISIS in Britain. They’ve adopted a view, initially, that they should keep them out, but that means …

EMMA ALBERICI: That’s a view that’s shared here too …

GEOFFREY ROBERTSON: Yes, I know.

EMMA ALBERICI: … in our government.

GEOFFREY ROBERTSON: But you can’t make people stateless. The answer I think is that you have to bring them back, arrest them and put them on trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity. We can do that. There are those crimes under the Crimes Act. And I think that view is gathering force in Britain.

EMMA ALBERICI: So you think it’s wrong to deny them – to cancel their passports, deny them re-entry to Australia?

GEOFFREY ROBERTSON: Well perhaps cancel their passports if they’re going, but when they come back, I think the answer is not to refuse them and leave them stateless because that’s – what we should do is prosecute them, send them to prison for a long time, or perhaps – the view in Britain is the Channel program. We’re developing programs with psychologists and imams and possibly returned jihadis to discourage young people from joining. And it may be that instead of getting a 25-year sentence for being an accomplice to war crimes in Syria, you will get a reduction if you’re prepared to help discourage other people from taking this primrose path. But it’s a problem that both countries are facing. I think the answer is to prosecute for the crimes that they’ve committed, for their accompliceship in these monstrous events and to punish them and hopefully the punishment will act as a deterrent itself.

EMMA ALBERICI: We have to leave it there. Many thanks for coming in, Geoffrey Robertson.

That dear reader is what the ABC puts to air and after all why not a great many people love him? All one has to do is listen to the disparaging personal attacks that pass unchallenged by the ABC reporters to realise how low it has sunk as a so-called independent news provider.

However, one can still say – thank you come in spinner as  another anti-war liberal has joined the ranks of the pro-war elements.  OMG we are currently so shamelessly broad in our ranks that we will even have this contemptible refugee from the old not in my name brigade. ROBERTSON may well rather be passing a sentence on the Spanish Prime Minister, George W Bush and Tony Blair as war criminals – but he will just have to content himself with a bit of gutter sniping instead! Little Johhny Howard indeed!
