The fat lady ain’t singin’ yet, but I can hear her warming up backstage. The odds now highly favor a successful theft of the election by the Democrats. Their candidate will probably be taking the oath of office on 20 January.
However, Democrats have overreached. His Fraudulency Joe Xiden’s “victory” has been, and will continue to be, extremely costly. First, the blatant theft of the election was so throughly bungled that almost a third of all Democrat voter’s believe the count was crooked. There’s simply no way enough of the public will believe in the integrity of future elections without stringent reforms in counting procedures. The coming fight in blue states over electoral reform has the potential to consume much of their political bandwidth.
BTW, the Left’s increasing use of street violence over the past four years was unwise for many reasons, not the least of which is the way it has tried the patience of many in the Center and on the Right. Bluntly, if public order breaks down, there are more veterans in the political Center and on the Right, and history favors the assumption that they wouldn’t allow corrupt thuggery to destroy public order if push comes to shove. However, even the mayor of Portland is trying to put an end to the street thugs, so problem may fade.
In 2020, the Left has also overreached into the day-to-day lives of the American people through unscientific, control-freak regulations allegedly aimed at controlling the Wuhan virus pandemic. Today is the 307th day of the 15-to-45 days that I was told I would not be working on-site in order to deal with the pandemic. I’ve been working remotely, sometimes overtime, and haven’t missed a paycheck. But too many people have been crushed financially for no good reason. Too many have had non-pandemic medical issues complicated by incompetently designed and managed lockdowns. Too many were killed in nursing homes by wrongheaded regulations. Too many people have been kept out of their houses of worship. But now, people are fighting back, and there are too many instance of non-compliance and too many court cases before honest judges for the blue states to maintain their control much longer, especially since law enforcement agencies are now beginning to side with the people rather than the politicians.
Meanwhile, the Republicans have increased their levels of control in state legislatures. They will have the upper hand in redistricting for the House of Representatives, and that will weaken the Democrats’ position going into the 2022 elections.
All is not lost.
That’s not to say that the next couple of years will be easy.
Empire Deep State Strikes Back would be a fitting title for next two years. Much of the Deep State is intact, and it would be foolish to believe that it won’t try to regain as much power and influence as it can. But most of its power can from how deeply it could hide its activity. The last five years have removed much of its cover. People will be watch, and they know many of place to be looking. The smarter members of the Deep State will burrow deeper or move on to other sinecures, but most of them will actively participate in the Xiden/Harris attempt to revitalize the Left’s control of the bureaucracy. I expect there will be lots of clumsy attempts at restoring “order.”
Second, there will be plenty of work required to keep exposing what happens to public view—and to keep people laughing at the Xiden/Harris failures. The Main Stream Media and Main Stream Social Media are now essentially fully integrated with the Left. I believe that it’s time to revitalize the Blogosphere as it existed a decade ago. That will restore a platform for opposition voices, and those opposition voices should be merciless in holding a Xiden/Harris administration to account. And we should do it with humor. Remember Alinsky’s Rule 5: Humor is man’s most potent weapon. The people we’re dealing with take themselves too seriously. They are too self important. They can’t stand to be laughed at, but most the American people still have a sense of humor.
2021 may out-wierd 2020.
Fasten your seat belts and stay tuned.
