That is actually Rush's excellent post and I am flattered that you'd even think it was mine.     ;D

I take that as a compliment. Thanks!

So after 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife went to see a therapist. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married.

On and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured.

Finally, after allowing this for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and after asking the wife to stand, he embraced and kissed her long and passionately as her husband watched with a - raised eyebrow. The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze.

The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at least 3 times a week. Can you do this?"

"Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but I fly model airplanes on Fridays."

  Go back a few post and read the article I posted from The Conservative Tree House.   It sums up where the republican party is going and what they are doing.   

 This one quote is telling

”The RNC Club wants, as billionaire donor Ken Griffin explained from his discussions with Ronna McDaniel, Ron DeSantis and Kevin McCarthy, to remove the populist elements within the Republican Party, vis-a-vis MAGA, and realign with the multinational corporations on Wall Street.  “He wants to improve the diversity of the GOP and blunt the vein of populism that has complicated the party’s relationship with the corporate world — two things he’s consulted with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy about.”

That right there tells you everything you need to know. About half of Republicans are MAGA according to some polls but I think it’s actually more who are ideologically populists.  The polls might ask if you support Trump over DeSantis and maybe people like Stan or Little Joe, who I believe (correct me if I’m wrong guys) are basically in line with Trump’s economic and international policies, want to drain the swamp, etc., but just don’t like his mean personality, think he’s too old, has too much baggage, or is less electable in the general, want someone who can give us two terms; they’ll be asked if they support Trump over DeSantis and when they say no, are not counted as MAGA, but are in fact more populist than establishment. 

What I am saying is I think the polls are underestimating the fraction of Republicans who are this “populist element” that these RINOs want to get rid of.  These voters do NOT want the GOP to strengthen it’s alignment with the corporate world at the cost of the working man.  You have to look at how these polls are worded.  People may not admit to being MAGA and they might not prefer Trump, but that doesn’t mean they are happy with the disconnected Republican establishment.  I believe the “populist element” is far more than half. And you don’t have to be a Trump supporter to lean populist. Many people believe DeSantis is “MAGA Light”.

What I am saying is Republicans like McCarthy and McDaniel (and Griffin thinks DeSantis himself) wanting to remove the “populist elements” from the Republican Party, are miscalculating it’s size: the depth and breadth of Republican unhappiness, falsely aligning it with Trump (who is a galvanizing focus -NOT THE INVENTOR- of our unhappiness) and therefore if they succeed in severing the Party from populism, they will either become a small fraction of themselves and lose power, or become a small fraction of elite out of touch tyrants who hang on to power through corrupt duplicitous means just like the Democrats.

The grassroots movement to elect populist politicians will continue but if these establishment Republicans continue blocking them, to “keep populism out of DC”, we have a choice: Form a third party, or just go to sleep and let America continue to decline. No, I don’t think it’s time to go civil war - yet.

just like the coverage of President Ford, eh?
Ford played football for Michigan, and fell at the bottom of the air stairs.

Biden played footsie with little children, and defied gravity by falling going UP stairs.

Thanks!  Short term, not much.  But medium to long term a significant change to my standard of living.  I appreciate the perspective at the very local level.  I was having trouble caring about all the shouting.

  Running the printing presses is accelerating inflation.  Residential and commercial real estate is taking a beating due to higher interest rates.

 Your IRA's are suffering due to lower stock gains, and what's there is being eaten away by inflation.   Your home value also suffers.

 Also, those 87,000 new IRS agents aren't there to go after the affluent.

We should get rid of the debt ceiling permanently.  It is an artificial construction with no purpose except to allow politicians to argue about money they have already spent.  If our politicians vote to spend money, then we MUST pay that bill.  The only good thing about the debt ceiling is that it does give one party leverage to negotiate some stuff, but it is tough negotiation when you KNOW you MUST pay the bills regardless.

In lieu of an artificial, after the fact debt ceiling, it should be enshrined in law that Congress can't pass a spending bill that exceeds whatever ceiling we want to set.  If a spending bill exceeds that amount, then they should have to vote on raising the ceiling BEFORE they vote on spending the money.

  How about a balanced budget amendment?   Either balance the budget, or we cut off all pay to congress.

Trump is only a Conservative when it suits HIM.  He has no problem with being liberal when THAT suits HIM.

Trump has never been a conservative at all.  He doesn’t have a pie in the sky ideology of any stripe.  He’s about pragmatic results. He’s for the forgotten man, and America first, whatever ideology that means on any one issue.  Sometimes that looks conservative, sometimes it looks liberal.  Once in a while it looks libertarian and sometimes even authoritarian.  Sometimes it’s right and sometimes wrong. He’s not perfect.

But for the most part he is consistently opposed to the swamp, Uniparty, Deep State, whatever you want to call it, and the global cabal.  He is opposed to government overreach at the expense of the working man and the common man.  He is opposed to centralized control not only at the federal level but internationally.  He is opposed to relinquishing any of our sovereignty to the no-borders global oligarchy.  He stands between us and all of their destructive schemes to end civilization as we know it, which is based on fossil fuels.

I cannot overemphasize how important this one man is because he is not slave to an ideology but rather interested in actual real world pragmatic results.  He proved this in his first term. This diminished the power of the Uniparty and the global elite because it empowered us, the people.  More jobs and cheap energy means self sufficiency and that lessens their control over us.  This enraged them.  They can’t have him in office again because of just this and are deploying every weapon they have against him, including putting up DeSantis to try to deny Trump the nomination.

I believe Trump soundly beat Biden in 2020 and will win again if mail in voter fraud can be curtailed, but the GOP doesn't want that. The Uniparty wants more of the same wich means the USA IS GONE.

  Because the republicans refused to fight back against election fraud in 2020, we are in this mess now.  To Trump's credit, he has called out the fraud and he accurately predicted what we are living through right now.

  The J6 false flag event was to shut down any and all talk of a stolen election.  FJB held an inauguration surrounded by 20,000 troops due to the fear of Americans protesting a stolen election.

  Even today, we are seeing unprecedented censorship and persecution of anyone who speaks about election fraud.

  It's not about votes, it's all about ballots.

K.T. McFarland, who served as President Trump's deputy national security advisor under Mike Flynn for the first few months of the Trump administration, told FBN's Maria Bartiromo on Sunday that she believes the FBI, CIA, and the intelligence community will try to interfere in the 2024 election to "protect their own hides" by covering up evidence of interference in 2016 and 2020.

"They will absolutely interfere in 2024. We're not sure how but they will absolutely interfere, not only because they're not going to like whoever the Republican candidate is, but to protect their own hides," McFarland said. "They knew they were doing stuff wrong. They knew they were going to be liable for prosecution."

"They can't possibly admit they were wrong because that undercuts their whole reason for being. So they're going to continue to have this fake narrative and continue to cover up and pretend that nothing bad went on," she said.

K.T. MCFARLAND: Well, I knew because I was a victim of it. When the Mueller investigation and the FBI came after me in the early days of the Trump administration, they knew I hadn't committed any crime but that didn't matter. They just wanted to go after anybody associated with President Trump in hopes they could break them or get them to lie, or at a minimum bankrupt them.

But I think, as I take a step back, and it's not just about me, it's not just about President Trump, what is it about?

We now have black-and-white evidence that the FBI interfered in the 2016 election. And then when they failed to get their candidate elected, Hillary Clinton, they set out to destroy the Trump administration.

So then go back up to 2020. This time, it was the CIA that got involved in the 2020 election with those 51 former intel agents who talked about the Hunter Biden laptop as "total Russian disinformation."

So they've gotten away with it for two elections. They will for sure get away with it -- try and get away with it in 2024, right? Because there are no consequences. The difference is in 2024, the evidence is there. We now have the Durham investigation and all the Congressional investigations.

There is now hard evidence that there was election interference by the U.S. intelligence agencies and the Department of Justice. Those individuals have got to be terrified. Those individuals have to be terrified that a Republican president comes in in the 2024 election, with a Republican Attorney General, and investigates them and charges them with all of the crimes they have committed over the last eight years.

MARIA BARTIROMO: Well, we'll see if you're right. There are questions about these elections because of this interference. Do you think there will be election interference in 2024?

K.T. MCFARLAND: Take it to the bank. They will absolutely interfere in 2024. We're not sure how but they will absolutely interfere, not only because they're not going to like whoever the Republican candidate is, but to protect their own hides.

That's why they were talking to their own people, and the whistleblower brought this up, they were told "Don't put anything on paper, just tell us orally." They knew they were doing stuff wrong. They knew they were going to be liable for prosecution.

MARIA BARTIROMO: Yeah, it's too bad. I wish the media were more curious about all of this. Unfortunately, the media takes the narrative of the Democratic Party and runs with it and then tries to cancel anybody who's not on board.

K.T. MCFARLAND: Well, they're in the same position. They can't possibly admit they were wrong because that undercuts their whole reason for being. So they're going to continue to have this fake narrative and continue to cover up and pretend that nothing bad went on.

They're all in it together. This is what the terrible thing is. These people are selling us out. Not only to foreign leaders, but they are interfering in our elections. They are tearing up the Constitution. Why? Because they want to protect their jobs and protect their ratings.

I never thought I would be this upset about how anybody in the government was performing, but this is just a gut punch to the American people.

This isn’t a two tiered justice system, it is outright malignant tyranny.

Yep.  Because our spineless cuck republicans refuse to put up a fight for anything, here we are.

The communist want more than anything to take down Texas and turn it into the new California.    Keep watching this shit show, and you'll see who the RINO's truly are.
