The Democrats’ Dog-And-Pony Primary

Process of Elimination or Divide and Conquer or Both?

Americans shouldn’t be fooled any longer. Whether it’s the Democrats and their pool of corrupt candidates, or the Republicans and their usual slate of acceptable losers, you need to understand how things are actually done.  You don’t really believe the selection of the President is to be left to you, rank-and-file, ordinary Americans, do you?  Please.  If I’ve learned nothing else in the years I’ve been blogging about the sad realities of both parties, it is that under ordinary circumstances, they’re never, ever, EVER going to let the people choose their own President.  Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats have any interest in seeing that much power vested in the electorate.  The party establishment picks the candidates for both parties, except in an all out revolt.  President Trump won the nomination and the presidency through such a revolt, but the establishment isn’t going to let him keep it if they can help it.  If Democrats are looking at the outcome of the current primary season in dismay, I don’t understand why.  Long ago, you chose party over any principle.  Now, they’re feasting at the table they’ve set, and yet seem to have lost their appetites now that they see the main course is a near-octogenarian duffer who couldn’t possibly win without the whole process having been stage-managed. That’s right, it’s been stage-managed, and Joe Biden will be their candidate, and if they can, he’ll be their President until they can eject him under the 25th amendment.  (That’s if he manages to survive through the convention and election.)

Folks, in 2016, the establishment was all set to pull their usual stunt on Republicans.  They had JEB Bush as their chosen man, and they had all the other smaller players meant to appeal to the various segments of the party.  For the staunch Christians, they had Santorum and Huckabee.  For the “moderate” East-coast Republicans, they had Chris Christie.  For the more secular but still staunchly conservative voters, they had Ted Cruz.  For the libertarian-minded Republicans, they had Rand Paul.  For the Cuban segment so important to Floridian politics, they had Marco Rubio.  For the moderate Republican woman who was somehow convinced that only a woman would do, they had Carly Fiorina.  For those who thought the Republicans needed to make ground in the black community, they had the kindly Dr. Ben Carson, who was apparently never all too serious about his candidacy.

All of these were to be the “non-establishment” alternatives whose candidacies would be killed-off one in turn after the other, until all that remained was JEB and perhaps somebody to whom they’d give the Vice Presidency to seal the deal.  This is how it worked in 2011-12.  It was always going to be Romney.  It’s classic divide-and-conquer.  What interrupted all of this in 2016 was one very unexpected outsider, Donald J. Trump, who observed this process play out in 2011-12.  He jumped into the candidacy in 2015 and started with an endorsement from an expected-but-not-realized 2012 candidate: Governor Sarah Palin.  From there, he took on JEB directly, and several of the easy chumps, like Christie.  He flipped the game on the establishment.  He beat them at their own game.  In the end, it came down to him and Ted Cruz, and in this way, when Cruz came home to the party after the convention, so did his supporters, and with them, just enough electoral inertia to win the general election.

What do you think 2020’s Democrat primary season has been all about?  Do you really think Joe Biden is a candidate who is in any way a viable candidate, on his own, and independent of the party’s establishment?  Not a chance.  Joe Biden is a puppet, and with his increasing dementia, he’s perfect.  Bernie will stick around, probably until the convention, so he can keep his “bros” active and engaged.  The Democrats will need as many of them as they can get on election day.  Bernie was never, ever, EVER going to be permitted to win the nomination.  I’m sorry for those who thought otherwise, but the establishment’s in a bit of a pickle this cycle, and they simply can’t permit it, just as they couldn’t permit it in 2016. In this case, their situation is even more desperate.  There’s already an insurgent in the office, and they cannot afford another.  If anybody stumbles across the full truth of what they’ve been doing all these long years, it’s curtains for them for at least a generation.

President Trump has figured out some of it, at the very least, and increasingly, it may be that he’s unraveling the establishment’s big game.  I think this is the reason Mark Meadows is now his Chief of Staff.  I think this is the reason we’re soon going to see further moves aimed at undoing some of the deep state.  What do you think this whole thing with the Novel Coronavirus 2019, a.k.a., the #WuhanVirus, a.k.a. the #WuFlu, is all about anyway?  This is all about the establishment being willing to wreck the entire global economy in order to protect their secrets.  They’re willing to kill-off human beings in the thousands or millions in order to keep what’s hidden in its present state of concealment.

Joe Biden will win the nomination, but one of two things will happen: He’ll be replaced at the convention, or if he actually runs through the general, if they can push him across the finish line, they’ll swear him in as President in January 2021, and then promptly break out the 25th Amendment to oust him.  Look at who he’s already put out there as his cabinet-in-waiting: They’re all Soros-Obama stooges who will follow orders.  Joe Biden is a vehicle, and I think his wife, Jill, whatever else is true about her, has begun to see the truth.  I think she knows, and I think she’s mortified by it.  When Joe stumbles in his speech, or goes on to his next bizarre “gaffe,” if she’s in-frame, you can see her grimace in anguish.  She seems either to really love him, or is at least guilt-stricken at what’s being done to him, or both. Whatever the case, it’s clear that Joe Biden has no business running for President, and whomever is running this operation is just using up what remains of poor ol’ Joe.  He’s corrupt, and maybe they’ll use him as a scapegoat for the whole sick affair in Ukraine and China.  There’s more corruption than you can imagine, and the DC Uni-party wants it all hidden.

I feel bad for rank-and-file Democrats, in much the same way I felt bad for rank-and-file Republicans in 2012, and in previous election cycles.  There’s nothing honest about the DC media-politics oligopoly, and there’s no chance they’ll ever willingly let the American people win and choose their own President, (or keep him,) if they can help it.  They have too much at stake.  There’s too much corruption to cover under a veil of officialdom and official secrecy.  It’s despicable.  I hope more Democrats figure out what’s been done to them, just as I hope more Republicans will figure out what had been done to them in cycle after cycle.  It’s time to begin an American party, with broad consensus on the basics, and then to clean out the nest of vipers that has been running Washington DC for most all the years of my life, and yours.  Realizing that at present, Donald Trump is actually the only vehicle for that reform is something more people in both parties should do.
