Bill Whittle left the following remarks under his new video, released today:
**The reference to “Leon Ponetta” near the end of this video refers to JON PODESTA. The person responsible for sacking the former quality control position has been sacked. Updating ASAP and I regret the error.
Heh. As Vlad Tepes can attest, them “quality control” folks are always missing something or other. Videographers, more than most of us, are plagued by Murphy’s Law regarding typos and mis-speaks.
Mr. Whittle also adds:
Benghazi. Emails. Even leaving her supporters out in the cold on election night while she smashed things and hit people… Just when you think she cannot sink any lower, she finds a way.
That’s the royal “She”…
These machinations by Clinton (three guesses as to where Jill Stein may be getting sudden millions to keep up her spoiler push against the election results) are a shameless disgrace. They are also right out of the Democrat playbook, as Mr. Whittle notes regarding the “contested” George W. Bush presidency in his first term, the one that was decided by the Supreme Court. Poor Al Gore had been raised from childhood by his very political father to some day run for president. And George W. Bush spoiled that father-fueled fantasy, leaving Al-Gore with nothing but great wealth and a fervent hope for an ecopalypse.
Hillary’s loss has the same driven quality of hamartia. For more than thirty years, she pushed Bill, ultimately using his personable chicanery as the wedge into the presidency. She frantically covered up his endless Bimbo eruptions and pretended to a conjugal bliss that never existed beyond the platform lights. It would take The Charmer’s victory to get her turn in the Oval Office. Bill’s wins would mean she could eventually have the turn she deserved…
But the Fickle Finger of Politics made a hugely obscene gesture in Hillary’s general direction, inserting that odious upstart, Barry (The Empty) Obama into line ahead of her. He stole her turn leaving Miz Hillary with the consolation prize of Secretary of State, a position from which she could enrich herself and where she could plot her next presidential campaign.
Oh my. That Fickle Finger would appear to have it in for Hillary…imagine putting that toad, Donald Trump, firmly athwart her path to righteous victory. As the curtain descended on her final loss, we had Hillary the Harridan screaming and scheming to somehow get what is coming to her. In her addled rage, Trump and his victory are far worse a stain on her life than anything Bill left on Monica’s blue dress.
Thus, as Bill Whittle explains, we can expect more kabuki theatre from the Democrats. Except for the (perhaps equally) dismal leading characters this one will not differ much from the performance we saw when the Bush 41 presidency was contested by al-Gore’s team, frantically counting chads in Florida. 9/11 stopped those dramatics; perhaps they could imagine only too well how Gore would have played that horror.
Barring any similar national tragedy, the Dems will spend four years decrying Trump’s “illegitimate” presidency. Democrats have distilled the essence of Sore Loser; it is wrung from their tear-sopped hankies and sprinkled repeatedly wherever they gather to bemoan this essential unfairness. In a warmed-up room full of Dems, it hisses and steams.
So we have the Dems busy-busy, pushing the useless fact that Hillary won the popular vote, just as they did with Al. They aren’t mentioning a more interesting fact (since it indicates a general direction among voters toward populism): the Republicans captured the majority of the “popular vote” in the House. Neither factoid means anything. The GOP candidates for Congress amassed three million more votes nation-wide than the Democrats managed to do. Were they riding Trump’s coat tails? Probably.
The popular vote in presidential elections is a thing, but it’s not, and never has been, a meaningful thing. What counts in presidential voting is the number of electoral votes in each state. This method was set up deliberately to avoid they tyranny of the majority. If a federation of states is to last, this system, which gives smaller states equal voice, must remain in place.
Democrats will bellow to overturn or short-circuit the Electoral College yet again because it’s not in their favor. But the very first time the situation is reversed — that is, a Democrat with the electoral majority who loses the popular vote — they will be at the forefront of preserving this arrangement they are disparaging right now. Their grievous ignorance of history and of context would be funny were it not so damaging. Your grandchildren don’t know the dates of the Civil War but they’ll treat you to fabulated reams of stories about Harriet Tubman.
That’s the thing about the Democrat Party: for them, as for any other neo-Marxist group, in governance there are no absolutes, no constancy in the rules. There are only bendable guidelines to be used in order to make a situation more favorable to their current cause. To demonstrate how this works, here’s a real-life clarification: think of some law or other you consider an absolute; choose any one you want. To Democrats, that absolute you have in mind is much like a red traffic light would be to a born-and-bred Massachusetts driver. That is, in Boston rush hour, a red light isn’t really an agreed-upon law that requires a driver to stop. In practice, it’s a kinda-sorta-maybe advisory tip; something you can take into consideration…or not, depending on the exigencies of your particular situation.
Watch the next few weeks as the screaming and flailing and machinations, including propping up Jill Stein as the fake ‘reason’ for a recount (one she had no standing to call for in the first place) continue. Pray for Trump’s good health as he faces the hostile elites who fear his brand may surface here, there, and everywhere in a world waiting for more leaders like him.
