The Under-Water Myth

What do the Dirty Dems’ victories last Tuesday mean for the upcoming 2018 elections?  Answer:  NOTHING!

First of all, New Jersey is a hopelessly blue state and Virginia has been moving rapidly in that direction for some time, which is why I have repeatedly warned readers that I was skeptical the race in Virginia was as close as some pollsters claimed.  The plain fact is that Northeast Virginia is a liberal-elite extension of D.C., not just geographically but ideologically.

Second, Ed Gillespie is a classic establishment gentleman, having served as White House Counselor to George W. Bush and head of the Republican National Committee.  Not that long ago, such credentials would have been impressive, but in today’s populist environment they are actually liabilities.

Even so, Gillespie might have had a better chance if he had not insulted the intelligence of Republican voters by playing the wishy-washy, finger-in-the-wind game.  By trying to distance himself from President Trump while at the same time laboring to convince voters that he agreed with Trump’s policies, he became devoid of credibility.  So much so that he lost the Virginia governor’s race by a greater margin than Trump lost to Hillary.

In other words, last Tuesday’s elections went pretty much as expected, which is why I was surprised (but should not have been) that the Dirty Dems and their media allies immediately started insisting that the GOP losses in Virginia and New Jersey constituted a backlash against President Trump and signified the beginning of the end of the populist movement.

Many of the media comments were embarrassingly over the top, with FNM cretins declaring the Democratic victories as no less than a triumph of good over evil.  Even Fox News establishment talking-pointer Steve Hayes couldn’t stop reminding everyone how seriously “under water” Donald Trump was.  The guy is so shielded from reality inside the Beltway bubble that he doesn’t understand that the drumbeating about Trump’s disapproval ratings is nothing more than wishful thinking on the part of Democrats and their media allies.

I guess it’s possible Trump could lose in 2020, but if he does, it won’t be because of his approval/disapproval ratings.  When pundits gloat about Trump’s ratings, they are looking at them in a vacuum; i.e., they don’t take into account Trump’s ratings in each individual state.  It’s a delusional view which implies that the electoral college is irrelevant and that all that counts is the popular vote.

Calling all Dirty Dems:  The fact is that Trump can afford to lose California, New York, and Illinois by 20 million votes and it still wouldn’t matter.  This is precisely what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they ingeniously came up with the idea of basing election results on the electoral college.

What all this means is that the Radical Left folks are still in a state of denial.  They don’t want to face the reality that people in the thirty states Trump won still emphatically reject the idea of being ruled by gun-grabbing, single-payer loving, politically correct, violence-prone leftists who populate the Obama-Hillary states.

That said, I continue to believe that Republicans will pick up a number of seats in the House in 2018 and perhaps six or seven seats in the Senate.  There’s also a good chance that in 2020 Trump will lose the popular vote by an even greater margin than in 2016, yet still win the election.

If I’m right about this, it’s likely to put the entire Democratic Party on suicide watch.  These people are not only immoral, they’re also dumb as rocks.  As hard as it is for normal folks to understand, they are physiologically and psychologically incapable of acknowledging reality.

Which brings me to Bush 41 and Bush 43, both of whom were just fine with a Marxist president carrying out his promise to fundamentally transform the United States of America.  That’s right, nary a word of dissent during eight years of Barack Obama’s anti-American policies.

They had no problem with Barack Obama running up more debt than all other U.S. presidents combined.

They had no problem with Barack Obama making purposely divisive statements like “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends” and “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”

They had no problem with Barack Obama chiming in on local homicides like Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Freddie Gray and being proven wrong every time.

They had no problem with Barack Obama politicizing the Justice Department day in and day out.

They had no problem with the Benghazi scandal, the spread of ISIS, or Obama’s apology tours.

They had no problem with Barack Obama being caught on a hot mic telling Russian president Dmitry Medvedev, “After my election I have more flexibility.”  To which Medvedev responded, “I understand.  I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”

Well, George 41 and George 43, let me clue you on the worst-kept secret in the world:  Barack Obama was the most corrupt president in U.S. history!  Got it?

Does all this mean I believe the Bushes are bad people?  In the general sense of the word, no, I don’t believe the word bad applies to them.  They are decent human beings who are simply committed to doing everything they can to keep the status quo, so committed that they are blinded to the reality that the aim of the Dirty Dems is to destroy any Republican who stands in the way of their achieving their Marxist agenda.

Worst of all, because of their flawed vision, they sincerely believe it is right and proper to make nice to the Dirty Dems.  This is more a perversity than a sin.  It’s also stupidity.  But regardless of what it is, the bottom line is that, in their own way, Republicans like the Bushes do more damage to America than those in the Radical Left by offering no resistance to the latter’s tyranny.

Having said all this, I would argue that it’s not Trump who is under water.  It’s the failed and cowardly policies of establishment Republicans, cheered on by hopeless globalists like the Bushes, that are under water.

Bush Republicans long ago lost the battle for the soul of working Americans, but, incredible as it may seem, they don’t even know it.  Which is why the 2018 midterms and 2020 presidential election will be even more traumatic for them than the 2016 seismic jolt from which they have not yet recovered.

And might I add that it couldn’t happen to a more deserving group of people.

    I pray that you are correct. Our country needs Trump.

  2. CW Goffnett says:

    There were zero surprises on these election results… What was revealed was …you run a RINO bushie and you get no excitement…You diss Trump and his agenda to your own peril…although I don't think it would have mattered in the long run as Trump lost VA in the general election.

    • Jim Hallett says:

      It was akin to expecting some conservative to win the SF Bay area or Manhattan. It wasn't going to happen, despite what idiot Chris Cuomo is propagandizing on his rants. No comment about the evils and corruptions of the filthy Clintons from him, but he is quick to chime in with all sorts of crap about any Republican. I never watch him, but some restaurants around town have CNN on (no sound, thankfully!!) and he is just one of the worst propagandizers around. Most RINOs are not worth voting for, so you actually register more of a protest by either staying home or writing in someone you can believe in.

  3. TheLookOut says:

    My sentiments exactly Mr Ringer, your perspective as
    usual is right on. Thanks again.

    RR:
    Have you written an article about the fake tax cut plans that are being put out there…I think there has been some good but to say it is a huge overall cut, the largest in history is a SNL joke…

    "These people [Dimocrats] are not only immoral, they’re also dumb as rocks.  As hard as it is for normal folks to understand, they are physiologically and psychologically incapable of acknowledging reality."
    .
    Yes! And they are committed to duplicating themselves within and emerging generation. For all its warts, the Boomers should stay alive long enough for the propagandized young adults to wise up. The alternative will be to preside over Western classical liberalism (conservatism) succumbing to Chinese Xi totalitarianism as the best alternative to insane and incompetent Dimocrats. All human beings that do not pursue honor, integrity, truth and daily productive work in society are the basest, evilest in creation.

    As Justice Clarence Thomas opined to Laura Ingraham, 'I don't know what we have in common anymore'

  7. Cindy says:

    Funny how the media deemed these 2 elections as a referendum on Trump's presidency but never did the same for a more disastrous election for the Dirty Dems under Obama's presidency.

  8. John says:

    This column goes to a core realization that needs to happen with conservatives and the GOP: The Democrats are evil. Leftists are evil. They are not nice people who simply have different ideas, they are evil people for whom the stakes are nothing less than the destruction of the Republic. You don't appease evil. You don't cater to it. You don't 'reach across the aisle' and 'try to find common ground.' with it. Until conservatives and the Republican Party get used to the idea that we'll have to meet evil on these terms and defeat it, you'll have a full swamp and gridlock in D.C. We've seen scores nay legions of examples of the Left's absolute refusal to compromise, to 'reach across the aisle' to cater to the most base, ugly level of humanity to maintain power. They understand the stakes they're playing for. Evidently it has yet to sink into the George Bushes and Mitch McConnell's of the world. I don't think Trump gets it either, and anyone who believes that he does is delusional. What he's doing is commonsense populism and it works precisely because the GOP refuses to internalize the truth of the evil they're engaged with. As we've seen a number of times on social media, rational discussion is virtually impossible with evil because these people are blinded by their own righteousness. Winning to them is the complete ideological, spiritual, intellectual (and soon physical if they have their way) obliteration of those who oppose them; not some smarmy notion of 'finding common ground.'

    Evil. We are facing Evil.

    • Robert Ringer RJR says:

      You are 100% correct. And no, Trump doesn't completely get it, but I think he's slowly getting there.

    • Scott theczech says:

      Marxism is evil. The Left are nothing more, nothing less than Marxists. You are correct in your assessment sir. We must quit capitulating to these people and defend our republic.

  9. Jean says:

    The Bush family also forgets that some of us voters have long memories. Bush 43 also had the trifecta – a Republican dominated House, Senate and the White House. And rather than leveraging that advantage, he successfully allowed the Democratic minority to control the narrative and policy initiatives, losing both houses of Congress to the Dems during midterms. President Trump has the House and much of the Senate, yet we see the entrenched Republican establishment torpedoing every shred of legislation designed to upset the status quo. A votet against Gillespie was a vote against the establishment, not against Trump. And I suspect that many voters stayed home rather than hold their noses and puil the lever for an "R" that they knew was the same-old, same-old.

  10. larajf says:

    I heard the dirty dems are trying to get around the electoral college without a constitutional vote…I heard the Maryland has already voted into law that their electors will vote for whomever has the popular vote, and other blue states are looking at the same. It (hopefully) won't pass the Supreme Court. I wouldn't like to live in a place where mob rules.
    Oh wait…I live in California.

  11. Jerry Spillane says:

    What a nice cozy little club the RR fan club is! Their only arguments against those who deem to think differently that they do is to name call and classify as "evil".

    • Jim Hallett says:

      It's not a "cozy club" at all, but rather people who are committed to individual freedom and not the theft, crime and violence-affirming rhetoric of the "progressive" unhinged Left. Most of us clearly understand the faults and limitations of Trump, but he was the only one that could change much of the establishment culture in the District of Criminals, and unlike the Clintons, he has not murdered anyone!!

    • Jimmy says:

      Poor Jerry. Shouldn't you be in a safe space with the rest of your leftist brethren, drying your eyes and preparing for another major loss in 2020?

  12. Wizup says:

    Please give us a break – "the Bushes are bad people? In the general sense of the word, no, I don’t believe the word bad applies to them. They are decent human beings who are simply committed to doing everything they can…" I won't bore you with all their many crimes just three – Bush 41 oversaw the killing of JFK as a CIA operative and the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan as VP – Bush 43 of course allowed 9/11 to happen. Please read Roger Stone's book – The Bush Crime Family: The Inside Story of an American Dynasty.

    • Jim Hallett says:

      You are right, and don't forget that Prescott ( a U.S. senator from CT) who was Bush 41's father collaborated with the Nazis – just like pig Soros!! Bush 41 voted for sociopath Hildabeast since she represented the establishment, and Bush 43 did not vote for either major candidate. The Bushes are not nice, decent people, unless you just look at their general hospitality and following cultural norms. Maybe not as crooked as the Clintons, one of the filthiest families ever in U.S. politics, but surely not "good people!"

    • Jimmy says:

      Can you back up the statement that Bush 41 oversaw the killing of JFK? Seems you know more than everyone else in the world on this. Lol.

  13. patg2 says:

    As usual, you covered the topic thoroughly and well. This includes your analysis of the Bushes. I was just thinking Bush Jr. is a decent human being who is simply mistaken, as I was reading, and then you said it. Took the words right out of my mouth.

  14. RealitySeeker says:

    "As hard as it is for normal folks to understand, they are physiologically and psychologically incapable of acknowledging reality."

    This is a truer statement than most people shall ever know — especially regarding certain races/cultures who are physiologically ( i.e., genetically) predisposed to being out of touch with reality than other races/cultures/political tribes…

    The hand-to-mouth races/cultures— with their roots in Africa and other warm climates— who have a long history of a short-term cognition/gratification instead of focusing on long-term planning are most vulnerable to becoming collectivist at the behest of white man with a cunning agenda such as Karl Marxists. Just look at the current races who have flooded into the U.S.A. and how it has decreased the quality of life and increased Marxist influence, e.g., Obama, " the worst president in history". Without the influx of certain races into the U.S. Obama would never have been elected. Would some other white Marxist have been elected? Maybe. Maybe not. There sure are a lot of whites who seem to be predisposed to envying others who have more than they do. That's what Marx himself was all about. The core of Marxism is envy. Envy. And the white race certainly seems to have a genetic flaw subject to envy. It can even be observed in toddlers who cannot yet speak. And the relatively higher IQ of the white race only seems to intensify the races cunning attempts to covet thy neighbor's wife, wealth, land and freedoms. Which brings me to the dispicable Bushes, Cheney, McConnel and other "Republican" enemies of humanity. The Bushes are a prime example of a political family who supported (s) a Royal Family of thugs who in the 21st century among other things beheads the adulterous, beheads political deserters, prohibits women drivers and on and on the list goes and generally acts like a country that belongs circa BC not circa 2000 AD… So. The cunning, white Bushes are big-time evil, too, and their buddy-buddy support of the now in major trouble wing of the Saudis is only one example of their evil. Which brings me to Trump…. The Great White Shark…

    Trump is no angel, no baby and no white guy on a white horse. But what Trump is is a disruptive freak ( the type of freak who throughout history seems to land on top of some declining empire) whose time has come…..

    I still support Trump, but only because in his own freaking way he is buying the American Empire time.

    As far as the Democratic Party is concerned: they've been in a long-term decline. FDR was the peak. Ever since than the trend has been down… One only has to look at the number of governors, congressman and other elected officials. The only reason why the Democratic party is still alive is because they've imported tens of millions of voters…

  15. Rick G. says:

    Well, here goes my second attempt to post a comment here.

    It's more like "dumber than a box of rocks", as I always like to say. Lols! What else can be expected about Radic-Lib states like New Jersey and Virginia. THIS WAS NO REFERENDUM ON PREDIENT TRUMP, as the Radic-Libs are quick to say. First of all, the east coast has almost always had a problem with their "blueness". Even as far back as the presidential election of 1964, where Senator Barry Goldwater described the hopelessness of ever winning the east coast by stating that they should saw off the east coast and let it drift out to sea. And rightly so. As with Virginia, that was another state Horrible Hillary won with Timmy's help, so that would naturally be a hopeless cause there. Also, Fox News said that the big win was due to an increase in voters, particularly blacks and millennials. If history repeats itself as it normally did back in 2010 and other previous midterm elections, I expect a GOP wipeout and a new Speaker of the House. But that does not mean it is all over and that Trump will lose in 2020. Trump's re-election hinges on two things, the economy, or as I like to say, the extent to which the American public to believe it is in such "good" shape, and who runs against President Trump in 2020. What Trump has going in his favor is power of incumbency, but as we saw in 1980 with Carter and Bush 41 in 1992, that is not an absolute guarantee. Right now anyway, there is really no one out there among the present group of dismals with any chance of getting elected. Horrible Hillary has said she plans to run AGAIN….that's right, run AGAIN…..and get her happy a** kicked AGAIN for a second go around. So, it is too early right now and a lot can happen between now and 2020.

  16. drbsci says:

    I actually think that the original idea of the electoral college was to have the people choose the most knowledgeable and disinterested citizens they knew to pick the president. Why? Because there would be no need for contributions to get out the message to the citizens about the qualifications of different candidates for president, hence no need for campaign contributions for advertising. The president would be chosen by people who knew more about him than he would like them to. Meaning in turn that the president wouldn't be owned by anybody.

  17. Guest says:

    As stated by some, the Bush family dating back to Prescott Bush, financier to Hitler, was well known as drug runners, robber barons, cultists, and all around disgusting people. Many books have been written about these people, it's there for all to see. Please, please, don't splash compliments on this all around disgusting family. They are horrible.

  18. joesugar says:

    "Bush Republicans long ago lost the battle for the soul of working Americans, but, incredible as it may seem, they don’t even know it."

    This is something I've been saying since the election. Republicans need to realize that just because someone voted for Trump does not mean they voted Republican.

    Robert,
    This is an excellent essay but I disagree on one point – the Bushes are NOT decent human beings. They are globalists and for the thousandth time I will say it very clearly – "Globalists are Socialists" – hence no condemnation from the Globalist Bushes for the Socialist/Marxist Obama and the audacity of their voting for Hillary.
    It is all very clear for those with eyes to see. Wall St. the banks, the Bushes, Obama, the Clintons, Soros, the RINOs, NeverTrumpers and all Progressives are all in the same boat. They hate the idea of the USA being exceptional since it stands in the way of their worldly ambition.
    And this is not new despite being called a New World Order. This has been coming down the pike for some time. Check out this cartoon from 1911 by Robert Minor in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch showing Wall Streeters including Teddy Roosevelt welcoming Karl Marx! https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/

    Trump is far from perfect and there are things he does that drive me batty but he is an American and wants to do right for us Americans and the country. God bless him and the USA!

  22. Rock Roach says:

    It was kind of funny the other days when the Dems were applauding Trumps 40 percent rate as being able to govern the country.Isn't that up from the low 30's during the summer months? And that there isn't any repeal of obamacare(which he certainly has tried and also doing several presidential orders to thwart OC) or tax reform passed, makes his approval that much more remarkable.

  23. Robby Bonfire says:

    I don't get the "Trump lost to Hillary" part?
