Sleepy Joe's Sleight of Hand

 


Not much in the news these days, friends -- we're just careening towards nuclear armageddon, as per usual.  Speaking of which, the American people remain highly supportive of U.S. humanitarian and military aid to Ukraine, but also highly skeptical of any proposal to inject U.S. military forces into the conflict.  And that, I humbly suggest, could play out very interestingly and problematically should Russia decide to escalate by using nuclear weapons against Ukraine.  The Beltway elite is already talking in cavalier terms about responding "in kind".  Would the American people countenance that?  Only one way to find out...

And here's an intriguing analysis of the Dem strategy for 2022.  It's not rocket science, really: the Dems believe they haven't a leg to stand on, so instead they plan on kneecapping the competition, i.e. us.   In other words, they'd like to make 2022 and 2024 into referenda on Trump, because they feel that's their best hope of winning.  The sad part is...they're probably right.  The American people are sick and tired of Biden and his Congressional cronies, but they might be even more averse to DJT.  Now, I don't think this approach will avail the Dems much in 2022, when Trump won't be on the ballot, but all bets are off in 2024.  With Trump-hatred and popular resentment of a "do-nothing" Republican Congress in his pocket, even Sleepy Joe might squeak by and win re-election.  Stranger things have happened.

  1. The world has been under the threat of nuclear since 1945 when the U.S. dropped two "devices" on Japan. And then American scientists sold The Soviet Union/Russia the formula. That's how the story goes. So maybe it's time to get back to that good old (and now improved), poison gas everyone was so fond of back in World War I. And then there is always germ warfare. What the hell! Nothing like having multiple options now is there? Always reminds me of some books by R.J. Rummell (spelling?) titled "Death by Government".

  2. Dr. Waddy from Jack: Well, this has been some day eh? Since it is re levant to your comments above on Dem strategy I presume to yap about it. In the past hour the Dems have called for an immediate vote on their bill "cod ifying Roe v Wade". Why? They would have to defeat filibuster! Do they assume that a decisive number of GOP Senators will recoil from the now expected death of Roe v Wade? Nah. Probably they want a recorded vote to bolster their use of this "detestable" development to lend a fillip to their abysmal and deserved electoral prospects. Good luck there Dems, after all, "elections have cosequences

  3. Dr. Waddy from Jack: They are beside themselves with frantic desperation: how very well they deserve it for their unrelenting championship of this fiendish practice and for their vicious denunciation of those now nearly blessed longtime fighters against this sociopathic wrong! To disable filibuster they would have to dilssuade



    uade Joe Manchin and maybe Kirsten Sinema ; good luck on that. I doubt if abortion on demand for convenience is well regarded in real America WVa or possibly much invaded Arizona. Besides,its a long way to November and the real America is MOTIVATED. You Dems may realize a short rise in your polls but then"its the economy stupid" as you once lovedto stick in our faces when you thought your low life Clintons had taken over. Your indignation will fluff in the face of the common sense you ignorantly loathe!

  4. Dr. Waddy from Jack: To you oh so flustered Dems (though of course you expected this closer to the election, so that you could use it to some pathetic advantage, yes?) Your now disenfranchised mole (of course he/she is one of yours) will have doneyou a signal disservice by the imminent revelation of him/her as an undoubted leftist. Such is your spawn and by this you will be judged unfavorably in the time of your discreditation, November next .

  5. Dr. Waddy from Jack: The West has brought itself and, most tragically, Ukraine ,to a fine fix. One may or may not like bears: no matter. You take them lightly at great risk, especially when you think them down. We were terribly dismissive of the almost incomparable sturm und drang of Russia's history, and of its brutal geography and climate. We have ignorantly driven Russia to what it sees as an existential pass. And much as does the bear, it has responded with harrowing ferocity! That is just their Russian way.

  6. Dr.Waddy from Jack: Will they use tactical nukes? I'd suggest only if their now intensfied conventional onslaught fails to yield them their objective ( which might be short of Ukrainian surrender but must satisfy their resolve to prevent, EVER, Ukraine in Nato). Russia may see the use of tactical nukes, if tactically necessary, as an incremental, even restrained, advance.

  7. Dr. Waddy from Jack: If they do, then what from us? We must face the fact; we unwisely provoked one of the most rugged of nations. We must not see this as a blow for blow meeting! Let us defend Nato Itself to the Nth! Let us help Ukraine as much as possible, for humanitarian reasons. But if the Rus do venture into that heretofore unhazarded, since WWII, sphere, we must now be WISE, SO VERY WISE in our reaction! We would not have been directly attacked. One must, I suggest, have experienced the INTENSE and precipitate power of a bear attack in the woods to understand its explosive violence. Yes, the Russians have so far been thwarted in Ukraine , but consider the results of their continued onslaught. Finland was as heroic an opponent to them but the Rus nonetheless brought the Finns to heel and without quite as much exi

  9. Ray, I can spot your witticisms a mile away! Agreed: we should gas each other silly. Come to think of it, some laughing gas might elevate the tone of our political discourse considerably.

    Jack, the baying for a quick vote on codifying the right to an abortion is entirely predictable. I mean, they have to "do" something, no matter how ineffectual. Mainly, of course, they'll wave their arms and moan about it, reminding voters that, any day now, a right-winger will be knocking on their door, demanding they pull down (or up) their skirts so their mandatory chastity belt can be cinched into place. It's instructive, though, that the Dems know abortion in itself doesn't move the electorate. They have to transmogrify the issue into an (indirect) assault on gay rights, interracial marriage, birth control, yada yada. That tells me that they're desperate and deranged...so, in other words, we're back where we started.

    Jack, I suspect the net effect of this precipitious revelation will be that, by November, the abortion issue will have lost almost all of its bite. As you say, the immediate future still looks bleak for the Left.

    Jack, I don't believe the use of nukes is anywhere close to imminent in Ukraine. I strongly suspect that Russia will prevail in Donbas by conventional means. Now, it is possible, as some suggest, that Russia will declare war, or deploy its reserves/conscripts, or otherwise gird itself for a more serious and lasting conflict. Given the deep well of support in Russia for this battle with Nazism/the West (as they see it), it would seem advisable for Putin to level with his fellow Russians and explain that Ukraine will be no easy nut to crack.

    I naturally agree that, if Russia escalates and uses nukes at some future stage, we should be circumspect in our response. Despite all the tough talk we're hearing these days, I would be shocked if we EVER bestirred ourselves to fight on behalf of Ukraine, or to risk Russian retaliation against any NATO country. My guess is we'd be thrilled to exile Russia permanently from the "in-crowd", in terms of trade and diplomacy, but otherwise we haven't the gall to take them on.

  10. Dr.Waddy from Jack: This is getting better by the day. Pino Biden may well have handed us another "basket of deplorables" windfall with his oh so " righteously" impassioned attack on "these MAGA people". Way to go Joe. You won't be able to spin out of this! I'm dusting off my MAGA hat right now.Let's see Joe: you are deservedly polling in the nether regions and gee, them midterms are usually a big problem already for incumbent real Presidents. As if the real America needed a rallying cry, given your obsequious subordination to the "American" far left, you go ahead and excoriate the at least half of America which, gee,will not abide our going socialist totalitarian! Yeah,stir our nest Joe, although we are already buzzing!

  11. Dr. Waddy from Jack: The leak of the draft decision is an outrage, yes, but it has already done much dirt to the Dem far left. First: the leaker was almost certainly a latter day Rudolph Hess hoping by this nutsy act to thus change the apparent (to he/she) promulgation by the lawful Scotus majority of the doom of the Roe vWade legal abortion. He/she will soon be revealed as a leftist partisan and thuspowerfully affirmative of the "American" left's absolute determination to use any means necessary to force America's will to their totalitarian command.

  12. Dr.Waddy from Jack: Second: a decision against Roe v Wade has been widely expected but not quite so soon. Fully to be expected then were to be the now seen frantic, emotionally captured, increasingly physically anarchic expectorations of the "American" left. Thanx you all, for giving us a telling preview. It puts the lie (with political consequences in November for sure)to your disingenuous, cynically empowered by now, surely lame duck Congressional administrative sway in frantic" remedial "reaction to Jan.6, enacted by you in presumptuous disregard of your outspoken praise for enacted anarchy you see as redeeming your counterintuitive, America destroying ends! Eg. 2020.

  13. Dr.Waddy from Jack: Oh the irony. This apparent decision has come from an institution upon which the "American" left has long reposed its trust as an undemocratic counter to the ignorant, atavistic electorate. Therefore: their now emotionally propelled rage. Let this insane mindset dominate their thrashing efforts to forestall their harrowing discreditation in November!

  14. Jack, I can certainly see where Biden is coming from. The ONLY thing he and his handmaidens have left in '22 is the demonization of their adversaries. Since they already believe the "MAGA crowd" is worse than a thousand Hitlers, why not say so? Of course, they've cried wolf so many times that America can but scoff, but I'm not sure that they have any other play left...

    Then again, you reminded me of the street violence galore of summer 2020, and I suppose that IS a strategem still in the Left's quiver. If the midterms looked like an electoral apocalypse (from their perspective), could they stir up a hornet's nest of rioting and civil unrest to precipitate the cancellation of said elections? We learn by doing... It behooves us to be ready for anything.

  15. DrWaddy from Jack : OK but whatever the "American" left presents us, we know from experience to be the product of their assumed good yet amoral intent!
