Big Brother Is Watching

 


Friends, imagine a world in which the federal government coordinates the suppression of online speech it doesn't like, outsourcing this violation of the people's rights to private companies, which are then rewarded with federal contracts once the "right people" win in "free elections"...  Scary, huh?  This isn't science fiction, though.  It's honest reporting on what happened in 2020, and what continues to happen today, in the dystopian Age of Biden.  Read on, and prepare to have your blood curdled!

One of my conservative pals wrote this fine article, which documents the decline of free speech on college campuses, and the steps that college administrators could take if they were interested in fixing the problem.  Unfortunately, they're not interested, and so the questions that inevitably arise are: can they be forced to care and to protect our First Amendment rights, against their inclinations, and, two, if they stubbornly refuse to tolerate dissent, how much longer will decent Americans continue sending these corrupt, Orwellian reeducation camps yearly donations, and, more importantly, how much longer will they keep sending their sons and daughters (and children of other, miscellaneous genders) to these so-called educational institutions to be brainwashed?  Those are the questions.  I wish I had answers.

Toxic Elites

 


Friends, today brings us interesting, if predictable, news on the Italian front: Giorgia Meloni's motley band of "fascists" won the middle class and workers (!), but not the wealthy and the well-educated.  This continues a trend throughout the West whereby, the more materially well-off and highly educated one is, the more likely one will vote for, and donate generously to, leftists.  In a nutshell, the Western elite has turned against the West itself: its values, its traditions, its honor, its religious heritage, and its demographic majority.  How can a civilization endure when its leadership class holds it in contempt?  Answer: it probably won't.

In other news, while the future looks bleak, the immediate electoral prospects of the GOP are brightening, and even the MSM polls are reflecting it.  Elections are largely about who has the momentum going into the final stretch...  Right now that's us.  Do the Dems have an evil plan to change the conversation, yet again?

Signs are accumulating that the economy continues to weaken, and the case that we are already in a recession grows stronger.  Are the American people paying attention?

Finally, Russia's formal annexation of parts of Ukraine may seem farcical to most Westerners, but technically this action escalates the terms of the conflict considerably.  That's because further Ukrainian offensives will be seen by Russia as attacks on Russia itself.  If they fail, or if they produce derisory results, the war may grind on as before.  If those attacks hit home and threaten Russian security, or the stability of Putin's regime, however, then Russia may well respond with nuclear weapons -- and then we're all in a heap of trouble!

Mercy Begets Mayhem

 



Friends, this happy-go-lucky fellow you see before you went on to make quite a splash in mid-20th century history, or so I'm told, and all because, unlike millions of his compatriots, he wasn't killed in World War I.  He came mighty close, though!  A British soldier once had him dead to rights and chose to let him go.  A fateful decision, no?  You'll find out more in this week's Newsmaker Show.  Historically speaking, we also cover Fidel Castro's 1965 decision to allow dissidents to leave Cuba, and William the Conqueror's notable visit to the British Isles in 1066.


In addition to historical trivia, Brian and I tackle current events, including movement in the rightward direction in the polls, the victory of the "far-right" in Italy's general election, the grinding war of attrition in Ukraine, the softening housing market, and more!


It's another tour de force of political commentary -- don't miss it.

"Fascism" Ain't What It Used To Be

 


Friends, as the U.S. and European establishment frets about the victory of the "far-right" in Italy (and, yes, Meloni's party is "far righter" than most of its critics), it pays to remind ourselves how empty much of this criticism is, and how little Giorgia Meloni resembles a "fascist".  I include for you Wikipedia's defintion of fascism, which apparently no leftist has ever read.


https://thefederalist.com/2022/09/26/is-italys-next-prime-minister-giorgia-meloni-a-fascist-hardly/

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascism 


In other news, Congress is shoveling yet more money in Ukraine's direction.  The amounts that Ukraine has received from the West as a whole are staggering, and underline the fact that the Russia-Ukraine conflict is indeed a proxy war between Russia and the West, which naturally raises the stakes for Putin considerably.

Finally, what's a young black actor to do when he notices that his white co-stars have more Twitter followers than he does?  Cry "Racism!", naturally!  That's the only reason I can think of why anything bad, or, in this case, slightly less good, would ever happen to a black person.  Case closed.

Break Out the Chianti!

 


Friends, we here at WaddyIsRight wish to convey our hearty congratulations to the Italian "far-right", which has won that country's general election.  The scale of the victory is still being determined, but the fact that the right-wing coalition has prevailed can no longer be denied.  How sweeping a political sea change this will be for Italy is unclear.  Giorgia Meloni, the probable new P.M., has been called a "fascist", but she has also moderated her rhetoric enormously in the last few months.  Italy's freedom of action is also strictly limited by its economic weakness and by its dependence on EU handouts.  Ergo, we right-wing extremists might want to temper our expectations, but there's no question that Italy now has a golden opportunity to renounce socialism, Eurocracy, and open borders.  Good luck, Giorgia, and good luck, Italians!

In other news, Liz Cheney is promising she'll leave the GOP if Donald Trump is the party's presidential candidate in 2024.  Yet another reason to support Trump!  Can we get that in writing, Liz?

Finally, there are a lot of polls out there predicting the outcome of the midterms, but suffice it to say that these polls, in the aggregate, are once again taking a turn in the Republican direction.  Today's ABC News/Washington Post poll, in particular, makes for depressing reading for Dems and lefties.  Enjoy!

He's Like Hitler Times A Thousand!

 


Friends, you're probably sick of hearing it, but lefties are convinced -- you're a bunch of Nazis, and Trump is the new Hitler!  It's just so obvious...Well, it is to Hillary Clinton, anyway.


https://www.newsmax.com/politics/hillary-clinton-adolf-hitler-nazi/2022/09/24/id/1088898/

 

Some of you may appreciate the boldness of this contrarian view of the progress of the Russia-Ukraine war.  According to this analyst, the Ukrainians are fighting their way to abject defeat.  We shall see.

 

https://www.theamericanconservative.com/holding-ground-losing-war/ 


Many mainstream media polls have the Democrats ahead in the midterm elections.  McLaughlin sees it differently.  Personally, I believe there's still a good possibility of a sizable Red Wave.  It may interest you to know, however, that, given the vagaries of redistricting and the extreme concentration of Democrats in urban areas, the GOP could fall short in the national popular vote and still win control of the House, and possibly the Senate as well.  Generic ballot polls that have the two parties tied, in other words, are effectively conceding that the GOP is plausibly on course to victory.

Finally, gird your loins, fellow fascists, because our favorite pin-up girl, Giorgia Meloni of the "Brothers of Italy", is set to become Italy's next Prime Minister after tomorrow's general election.  Could the polls be wrong?  Might the Italian establishment find a way to block her path to the premiership?  Stay tuned, because history is about to be made!

Outrageous!

 


Friends, today I came across a statistic -- in the Washington Post, no less -- that really made my eyes bug out.  The percentage of Democrats who viewed Donald Trump's election in 2016 as illegitimate was about the same as the percentage of Republicans who now view Joe Biden's election as illegitimate.  As a matter of fact, Republicans are currently more inclined to give Biden the benefit of the doubt than Democrats and Hillary Clinton supporters were re: Trump in 2017.  Let that sink in.  Democrats have been clutching their pearls since November 2020, amazed than anyone would have the temerity to question the results of a U.S. election...and yet they did it themselves in the recent past.  And, as we all know, they have a long history of doing it, too.  

 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/01/01/post-poll-january-6/ 


Anyway, check out this quotation from the Post article: "Republicans’ rejection of Biden’s victory is not novel. In a fall 2017 Post-UMD poll, 67 percent of Democrats and 69 percent of Hillary Clinton voters said Trump was not legitimately elected president."  BUSTED!!!

 

In other news, is the Biden recession finally impacting the markets?  It looks that way:


https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2022/09/23/stocks-sell-off-on-friday/

 

And, finally, Gov. Ron DeSantis got a lot of kudos on the political right for his gambit of sending "migrants" to Martha's Vineyard, but Republicans remain solidly supportive of a potential Trump candidacy in 2024, and they seem to view DeSantis as decidedly second-best.  Ergo, as I've said a million times, if Trump wants it, i.e. the nomination, it's his.

Hands in the Air, Trumper!

 


Friends, this New York Post article about an FBI whistleblower makes for very interesting reading.  He describes an agency that's been weaponized to attack Republicans, conservatives, and Trump supporters -- and a cadre of rank-and-file FBI agents who are disgusted with the corruption of what was once a respected and highly professional law enforcement organization.  If what he says is true, then the leftist leadership at the FBI is doing its best to purge free-thinkers from the agency to ensure that its primary political objective -- the eradication of the GOP -- is achieved.  If Republicans do well in November, agents like this whistleblower may get some relief.  If, on the other hand, Republicans lose in 2022 and 2024, there may be no conservatives left in federal law enforcement or in the military by 2030.  No joke.

In other news, you know COVID is passé when even the hyper-vigilant Canadians are ready to shrug it off.  I guess this means leftists aren't completely bonkers, and there are limits to how much virtue signaling they're willing to do.

Is the China Bubble Close to Bursting?

 


Friends, this week's Newsmaker Show isn't just an American tour de force; it's a truly global triumph.  That's because, sure, Brian and I get to the bottom of American politics, including our perverse national obsession with "diversity, equity, and inclusion", plus the kerfuffle over the migrants flown to Martha's Vineyard, but we ALSO reveal the truth about the stagnating and sputtering Chinese economy, and how it could threaten the stability of the global order.  You thought China was scary when it was fat and happy?  Try the Chicoms on for size when they get nervous and cranky!  I don't know about you, but, when China starts to teeter, I don't know whether to laugh or cry...


When Brian and I turn to "This Day in History", we talk over the life and legacy of Benedict Arnold, the twists and turns of the French Revolution, and the sly maneuvers performed by FDR to guide the U.S. into WWII, mostly against the wishes of the American people.


The Newsmaker Show's coverage of the news and of history is broad, therefore.  Broad enough to bring you, quite literally, the world!  You're most welcome.

In other news, Russia is taking (arguably long overdue) steps to bolster its forces in Ukraine by partially mobilizing its reserves.  Many in the West talk about Russia as though it's a spent force.  On the contrary, a major power with a population close to 150 million and nuclear weapons isn't to be taken lightly.

Also, in a move that will surprise precisely no one, New York Attorney General Letitia James is following through on her threats to sue Donald Trump, Trump's kids, and his company for fradulently inflating the value of their properties.  This add's to DJT's legal headaches, and in all likelihood it redoubles his determination to run (and win) in 2024.

"Tough Guy" Biden Rattles His Saber, Yet Again

 


Friends, for the fourth time, President Biden has contradicted U.S policy on Taiwan by promising direct U.S. military intervention there, while his administration simultaneously claims that no policy change has occurred.  Wow!  And, just for clarification, we're crystal clear on the fact that, for Ukraine, which we recognize as an independent country, we won't intervene, but for Taiwan, which we recognize as a part of communist China, we will intervene if those impudent Chinese dare to take even one step into their own territory!  Makes a lot of sense, doesn't it?  This guy Biden gets it.  Now, following his (flawless) logic, all the Ukrainians need to do if they want U.S. Marines fighting in the streets of Kherson on their behalf is to voluntarily surrender their sovereignty to Russia.  Then we'd have to invade!  Oy.  Sometimes you just have to scratch your head...


https://news.yahoo.com/u-forces-defend-taiwan-against-060053302.html

 

Meanwhile, scumbag lawyers (is there another kind?) have convinced some of the migrants who were flown to Martha's Vineyard by Gov. Ron DeSantis to sue him.  Could federal charges against DeSantis be around the corner too?  Don't be shocked if it happens.  The Dem plan for victory in 2024 is fast revealing itself: put ALL the Republicans in jail, or at least tie them up in legal knots, and Team Blue wins by default!  I mean, that is the purpose of the law, right?  To harass your political enemies?
