Beware The Nothing

   “People have begun to lose their hopes and forget their dreams…..so The Nothing grows stronger.” – The Neverending Story

 If you’re unfamiliar with the 1984 movie “The NeverEnding Story”, or its progenitor novel by Michael Ende, here’s the main point: A malevolent force called “The Nothing” is sweeping through the world, enveloping all it encounters, leaving nothing in its wake but a dark, empty void. Well, in the Western World, and especially in the United States, we also are being swallowed by a vacuous, nihilistic entity……..and it’s name is Progressivism.

Though we are living in extraordinary and historic times, with the economy booming and liberty expanding, with monumental changes in government happening at breakneck speed, there are those that are so enveloped in the darkness of their neuroses that they can’t find their way out. The world these sad and deluded people occupy has been positively affected by the actions of the Trump administration, yet the mental disorder that afflicts them will not allow them to recognize or understand it. Even the historic moves made towards peace on the Korean Peninsula are viewed through the lens of irrational hate. Why?

For the past decade, the damage done to Western Civilization by Progressives has been monumental. Under the guise of “fairness” and “equality”, individual liberty and freedom have been eroded so violently that I can barely remember the world the way it was before. Actually, that’s the Prog’s biggest problem………that there are still those who do remember freedom of expression, speech, and religion. There aren’t enough brainwashed millennials and bubbleheaded feminists to crush what remains of The Great Experiment………yet.  It was supposed to be over already, this Western Enlightenment, because of the cancer of identity politics, gender politics, sexual politics, and the loss of any moral and ethical grounding. The presidency of Barrack Obama was to be the final, victorious assault……with Barry himself dressed in the perfect armor of his skin color, swinging his mighty executive pen in a total war against logic and critical thinking, impervious to attack. Well……..oops.

What the leaders of The Nothing don’t realize is that in their wild tantrums they have flung off their cloaks of  fake and preening moral righteousness, and they now lay naked before us. The blemishes and pustules reflecting their internal disease are exposed for all to see. The Clinton cabal, the Bushes…….most of those that find themselves working in government, are parasites……and like ticks they are imbedded in the body politic, sucking our blood while they grow corpulent and bloated. In order to distract and manipulate the public into sleeping through the loss of their lifeblood, these incompetents have convinced millions to be focused on the childish insanity of political correctness and victimhood. Just think of all the mindless zombies wandering the planet worried about nothing more than the weather and whether you’ve got a ding-a-ling or a va-jay-jay…….oh, and don’t forget to never forget what color you are. The politics of the Progressive are without hope, empty, and useless, and leaves its practicioners the same way.

In The NeverEnding story, some of those in the path of destruction hopelessly fling themselves into the darkness, convinced that escape is impossible. In today’s culture, we see the same thing.  Suicide now kills more people in the United States than car crashes. Among white people between the age of 18 and 54 it is now the leading cause of death, and among all people its the second. Well? Why not? If you believe Progs, it’s because whatever is wrong with the world, it’s YOU that is the reason, and it’s getting rid of YOU that will fix everything…….unless you plan on voting Democrat that is.

The Nothing is pervasive and insidious, and you can feel it encroaching on everything around us……it’s in entertainment media, on CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and on stage at awards shows. Its advance permeates every atom of every part of our society.  In fiction, The Nothing was stopped and reversed by a brave young boy and his friends…..but in the real world, it will take those of us not yet cowed and beaten by Progressive, Globalist Fascism to stand against the black tide. Sadly, we will have to banish the darkness without the help of those already lost……….and if you are obsessed with “gender identity”, “patriarchy”, and “intersectionality”…….you’re already gone.

You Don’t Have To Live Like A Refugee

 

 

“refugees” atop the U.S. border fence

A caravan of supposed and alleged “refugees” has spent the last few months winding its way through Central America and Mexico in order to cross the border of the United States. A group of American lawyers, through the traitorous “Pueblos Sin Fronteras”, is responsible for organizing and funding this invasion, with the help of the Mexican government. Contrary to the never-ending depositing of fecal material done by the Media, this “caravan” is not made up of women and children nor is it a collection of victims of American Oppression. This is nothing more, and nothing less, than more of the same global Establishment’s efforts to continue to flood the ignorant and spoiled America with more 3rd world dependents…..that will vote and lobby for the same corruption they are fleeing.

Take a look at the image heading this essay. There they are, sitting atop the dilapidated fence that serves as the United States border. What is that they’re waving, you ask? Why, that’s the Honduran flag. When perusing the opinion pieces that pass for news these days, I see a common theme that’s not commented on. Here’s another picture of another heroic “refugee” crossing into the U.S…..have you noticed that, again, you see what can only be described as an adult male proudly draped in……….you guessed it, the Honduran flag? Weird.

Color me confused…..but this doesn’t match the narrative I see and hear daily from the Media. I hear about women and children abused and tortured by their country of origin…….desperately running for their lives into the U.S. in order to seek “asylum” and, you guessed it, “do the jobs that Americans just won’t do”. Once again, and this seems to be the case on literally every issue, politicians and media are saying and reporting lies and fantasy, specifically formulated to get an emotional reaction from the moronic American public. “Don’t believe what you see”, they say……..it’s all about “the children”. What a great trick the progressive Uniparty has pulled off in the last two decades…….fostering and fulminating a millions-strong foreign invasion of an uneducated and unassimilated horde that embraces government tyranny and a welfare check. The best part of this trick is the significant portion of the actual citizenry that have fallen for this con. They’re on Twitter, Facebook, and internet forums patting themselves on the back and calling anyone who disagrees with them a white supremacist. It really is quite something to see half of the people who will suffer from this invasion hatefully advocating for it.

I have questions for these “refugees” and their American advocates……why can’t you change the government and political landscape of your country of origin? If the culture and country you are fleeing is so murderous and horrible, why do you proudly and arrogantly wave its flag? If you love America’s “land of opportunity” so much, why have you not attempted to learn its language, laws, and customs? When did asylum become a “right”? And if it is, why is it only a “right” for soon-to-be burdens on the State that make their way to a land crossing into the U.S.?  Is there any group, from any country, that doesn’t have a “right” to asylum? Is there any limit to the number of, or type of, “refugees” that have this newly found “right”?

This is part of a larger movement to permanently change the make-up and electorate of the United States. It has been under way for a couple of decades now, and it has been completely successful. The combination of historically ignorant, narcissistic, and virtue-signaling American citizens and culturally ignorant, narcissistic, and entitled foreign invaders has worked its magic like a charm. Would you like to know what would make me believe, and even support, these “refugees”? Instead of the clenched and raised fists, the hateful faces spouting lawyer-trained talking points, and the proud waving of the Honduran flag while angrily refusing the language and culture of the country they demand to enter ……………..imagine a hopeful and grateful group of families, desperate to embrace and assimilate into the land they hope to inhabit, their hands proudly clutching an American flag. Picture them learning and studying the culture, customs, and language of their desired new home during their long trek…..ready to become proud Americans while rejecting the tribalism and tyranny of the country they came from. Now that would be something, wouldn’t it?  If you think that’s a crazy idea, then maybe you can tell me which one of the pictures below is most assuredly not like the other.

The Centre Cannot Hold

What a truly historic event. The government of The United States decided, while in massive debt, to spend another 1.3 trillion dollars by October of this year. Regardless of the reasons, this is just another catalyst on our journey towards a very dark horizon. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a conservative Republican that thinks this amount of spending is worthy of a case of the vapors……..nor am I a celebratory Democrat – patting myself on the back for pissing away enough dollar bills to build a stairway that goes more than a quarter of the way to the moon (*Wired.com 9/02/11). What I am is tired.

It’s incredibly disconcerting to think of the state of affairs, in virtually every instance, that we in Western Civilization find ourselves in. I can find no historical reference for what I seem to be witnessing. I can find allegories and parallels that resemble our predicament…and they aren’t good….but none to the level of insanity that we now face. Greece, our true forbear, tore itself apart due to constant internal squabbling….even though it united previously against Persia. Rome fell after many centuries of prosperity…..due to apathy and the watering down of citizenship and it’s responsibilities ( sound familiar? ).  The Eternal City was sacked, illustratively by the equivalent of hostile “illegal immigrants”. But what we see now is different. We are living in the greatest disconnect ever seen in human history. Our greatest achievements may also  be our undoing, as the global age of technology has not done what people like Gene Roddenberry ( creator of Star Trek ) envisioned……namely ending human struggle and ushering in a kind of new Enlightemnemt……it has instead led to the most divisive, deceitful, and disconnected conglomeration of civilizations ever known. Tech is tearing us apart.

That’s why current events, and more importantly the spin and commentary I have seen surrounding them, are incredibly disheartening. I see many people playing the same, tired games where you hear the words “Republican” and “Democrat” in every sentence……..when it’s all a ruse and they – and we – know it. I heard Republican talking heads whining about how “unconservative” this all is…..when they know damn well a “conservative” didn’t get elected……..and when it’s their Legislature that writes and passes this crap. If by some miracle somebody like…..say, Ted Cruz, had been elected…..do you think he would have accomplished anything at this point, or would it now be Bush term #3? Don’t fool yourself, please.  I don’t think that President Trump was lying, or being disingenuous when he announced the spending bill. I don’t think his comments afterwards were insincere or stupid……I just don’t agree. I think he is perhaps unaware of the apathy and discouragement of the average person, and expects those who were moved in 2016 to be moved again this year. I think that is greatly underestimating our current conditions.

The Republican Party is dead. It was dead before Donald Trump ran for President, and it’s still dead now. The geniuses at all the Republican think-tanks said all along Trump wasn’t a “Republican”, and they were right. Republicans are lying, jelly-spine creeps that would sell their souls to continue their tyrannical positions in government…….all while claiming to stand for your rights……. while taking them. If the Republicans lose this year it will be because of their (most likely purposeful) failure to embrace national populism and individual rights, opting instead for their worn-out, and now exposed, two-faced agenda. Here’s the thing though…….The Democrat Party is dead. It was dead before Trump ran for President, and it’s still dead now. The geniuses at all the Democrat think-tanks said all along Trump wouldn’t be President, and they were wrong. But, like their counterparts, Democrats are lying, jelly-spine creeps that would sell their souls to continue their tyrannical positions in government….all while claiming to stand for your rights…..while taking them. If Democrats win this year it will be because they will lie and pretend to be Centrist Populists while lurching ever leftward, all with the help of a willing, CIA-controlled, Stalinist-Media.

Without intervention, or a unifying event, the United States will not survive…..at least not in any way you would recognize. We are slaves to personal social media that lies to us with government funds, and also to an unelected bureaucracy that spies on our every whispered word. We are divided between too many factions……..from Puritans to LGBTQQFF@++ non-gender-conforming-non-binaries. How do such opposing forces join together? Are we already like strong magnets at opposing poles, and there is nothing that can bring us together?

The Thousand Pound Straw

Most of us have heard the phrase, ” the straw that broke the camel’s back”, right? It’s an adage that has been used for millennia to describe “a seemingly small or inconsequential issue, problem, or burden that proves to be the final catalyst in causing an overworked or overburdened person, system, organization, etc., to fail, give up, or collapse.”*. Well, if President Trump’s comments about gun confiscation come to legal fruition, then he has placed a thousand-pound straw on We The People’s backs.

It was reported in 2016 that Trump famously claimed that he could “shoot somebody…..and I wouldn’t lose votes..”. Since I am not a leftist, and therefore in possession of a sense of humor, I took that comment in stride, laughed, and moved on. I’ve done that with a lot of the more inane comments coming from the POTUS, as I think it important, and helpful, to hear directly from the Commander-in-Chief, especially in this crazy climate of irrational hate and “resistance”. I am not one of these people who talk about “comportment”, and being “statesmanlike”, as I don’t know what that means…..because those in government whom have supposedly possessed these traits have run the United States into the ground, and were private reprobates. Being aware of this fact has led me to allow Trump much leeway with his comments and behavior, because his policies have been mostly spot-on. Besides, with the incessant attacks on Trump it has been impossible to do much serious analysis about policy……instead it’s defending against irrational garbage like “white supremacy” and “fitness for office”. I usually prefer to give Trump the benefit of the doubt, as I realize it must be extremely taxing to have 90+ percent negative 24/7 press coverage, all while the establishment tries to destroy you and your entire family.

With all of that said, though…….the President’s comment that ” first we take the guns……then we do due process later…” is indicative of either a disconnect with who elected him, or of a desire to “do something” about guns when we should “do something” about our kids and the parenting strategies employed in their rearing. I get it, everyone is all in a tizzy about school shootings and AR-15’s…….because we have become a shallow, reactionary society. I’ve heard all about violent video games and music and blah, blah, blah…….when the actual root cause of our problems is failed parents, failed schools, failed curriculum, failed leaders and institutions, and sadly……failed and damaged young people for whom I do not hold out much hope for.

Western Civilization is being overrun by children. Not just by literal children, but by petulant, emotional children whom are inhabiting adult bodies. I don’t mean people, like me, who can be immature and impatient, or may make uncouth statements…….I mean people whose response to every single issue or event is governed by irrational, unthinking, emotion. Whether its “gender identity”, gun control, or railing against the supposed “patriarchy”, there aren’t many critically thinking adults involved.  All modern universities offer is the ability to dress up the ideas of idiots in fancy language. Rampant ignorance about human nature and actual history are the rules of the day. Maybe that’s why when I see a bunch of high-school kids telling me what rights I can or can’t enjoy, regardless of the traumatic events they went through ( How would we ever win WW2 today? Those were drafted “kids”, after all ) I tend to have a negative reaction.

My advice to the President is this: Stop listening to progressives and schoolchildren for your solutions to what is a societal parenting and education problem. We don’t need “gun control”, as there is less access to guns now than in the past……..we need “loser control”. If law enforcement wasn’t populated by politicians like Sheriff Israel in Parkland, FL. – and our bureaucratic systems weren’t bogged down with incompetent, unelected leftists that are impossible to fire, maybe we could trust a system that could identify nuts like the school shooter and the Republican baseball practice shooter before they act……but we don’t have that. We have a United States where half of the population is mindlessly ignorant and childlike, that demands virtue-signaling, dumb responses to tragedies, and a Justice Department dedicated to overthrowing an election and not preventing crime. Worse, we have a significant percentage of people who do not understand where our Rights come from. The Constitution tells the government what Rights we were given at birth by our Creator – whom or whatever you think that is – that cannot be taken away by that government. The Right to Bear Arms was not granted by our founding documents, just recognized by them. I would advise President Trump to keep that in mind when pontificating pandering to his enemies over defense of our Rights………as he cannot take away what God has given, and to try would be disastrous folly.

The Storm

We have a serious problem. Western society has become bifurcated and brittle, and instead of being split along usual political right/left lines, it is divided between the normal and the deranged. The normal are trying to live their lives, raise their kids, keep their jobs, and maintain the relationships they have. The deranged are obsessed with their adolescent-style feelings, skin color, sex, denying logic, and destroying everything around them.  I spent the day watching CNN recently, and I kid you not, there was not a single second of programming dedicated to relating the news or current events……….instead, it was a gossip-filled, petty, and angry diatribe of opinion and innuendo, all set on hourly repeat. Now, that’s not news to most of you, but it gave me a thought that sent shivers down my spine – what are the consumers of this poison going to do?

See, there is a storm coming. In fact, the storm is already raging in Washington, DC, unbeknownst to most, involving the Progressive agents of the previous administration and the few patriots left in our bureaucratic state.  The crimes committed by the previous stewards of our nation are legion, and when the election went the “wrong” way, a massive effort to remove the incoming administration began. Due to the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, many of the national cable news outlets are propaganda agencies for the unelected and corrupt globalists inside our government. The constant drumbeat of “Trump is ( insert awful thing here ) and so are the people who voted for him”, is for a reason, and it isn’t because those things are true, or even believed, but because it is the only course they have for what’s coming.

What’s coming, you say? The exposure of the corrupt and criminal elements inside our government and the crimes of people like Susan Rice, Obama, Valerie Jarret, and the Clintons. Their collusion with Silicon Valley, foreign agents, and scumbag law/opposition research firms has already been brought to light…….and with each revelation the defenders of the corrupt – like CNN – become more shrill and defamatory. Ask yourself: Why does CNN and MSNBC spend days covering Trump’s Diet Coke demands – yet in 8 years had no story or pictures about Obama’s 2-pack a day smoking habit? Why do people like Jake Tapper, Anderson Pooper, and the hideous and revolting Brian Stelter endlessly opine about the President’s “fitness”, yet just a year and half ago Hillary’s fits, faints, comas, blood clots, and seizure glasses were “not relevant” and “over the line”? They are whipping up the partisan and ignorant among us into a rage that is based on raw emotion and “feelings”, and we’ve already seen some of the results – The shooting of Steve Scalise, the attack on Rand Paul, the assaults on Trump supporters, and the increasingly hateful rhetoric calling for violence in response to any ideas contrary to progressive social justice. Also throw in a bunch of hoax racist graffiti and attacks proven to be committed by people of color, for good measure.  All of these things perpetrated by unhinged lefties radicalized by what they see and hear on CNN and social media.

Now back to my original question: What are these people going to do? When their progressive saints, and especially their progressive messiah Obama, are brought up on charges of violating and abusing the justice system by – among other things – using fake opposition research of a political campaign to spy on, and issue warrants for, American citizens and their opponents…….how will they react? Will CNN stop manufacturing hit-pieces, or will they tell their mindless worshippers to not believe the evidence and riot? Will Hillary Clinton, Obama, and their acolytes admit their crimes, or will they talk of “resisting” and “persisting”? Will progressive-appointed Federal judges follow the law in prosecuting the criminals? I think not…….and that’s the point of all of the hyper-negative coverage of the new administration. You know at least one person with Trump Derangement Syndrome…….when they are presented with absolute evidence of how wrong they are and how duped they have been, do you think they will accept it or even believe it? Again, I think not.

The Establishment has not been able to stop us from lowering unemployment and increasing GDP, nor have they been successful in stalling the markets or stopping tax cuts…….but they have insured a bounty of return when it comes to manufacturing hate. Blacks, liberals, and Millennials have been convinced of their victimhood, and even though they are beneficiaries of the changes since the 2016 election – not to mention America’s capitalism and liberty – they have been poisoned by their entertainment icons, sports heroes, political leaders, and professors. When the storm grows beyond sealed indictments and leaked testimony and covers the country, there will be millions of lost and weaponized people, who literally know nothing but their hate, taking to the streets. They will deny the truth of what is happening the same way they deny logic, nature, and common sense. They have all been told that everyone agrees with them, and that what they “feel” is undeniable truth…….and sadly they have been set up for a National nervous breakdown when the thunder rolls. How will you weather the storm?

Of Holes And Fake Outrage

  Gnashing of teeth. Rending of garments. Wringing of hands. Wetting of beds.  Sucking of thumbs. Furrowing of brows. Crapping of pants.

These are just a few of the reactions to the report of Lil’ Dick Durbin, who claims that President Trump asked – in a private meeting – why “they” ( the politicians in attendance) want to bring in people from “sh!thole” countries. The hetero-phobic primetime lineup on CNN became even more hyper, claiming “racism!” and “unfit!”.

Well, for one…….I laughed my ass off. After I regained my composure and unwrapped the actual news of the day, I stopped laughing and starting fuming. Why? Because the purveyors of Fake Outrage that inhabit the idiot box aren’t just phonies and liars, they are a clear and present danger to the people of The United States.

Just in case you don’t know what “virtue signaling” is, I’ll give you a brief primer: Virtue Signaling is the practice of loudly and vociferously, and almost always falsely,  claiming you either love or hate something based on the proposition that others will hear you and acknowledge what a virtuous person you are. Need an example? Say, for instance, you have a “friend” on Facebook who is outraged at the position of Trump and his supporters on illegal immigration – and they frequently post their opinion about how awful , racist, and hateful the folks they disagree with are – yet they do nothing, spend nothing, and sacrifice nothing in support of their position. They don’t really care, and are likely so self-absorbed, ignorant, and shallow that they are simply paying lip-service to what they perceive as the popular public opinion in order to appear virtuous and moral.

I just described most of the people you know, and all of the people on all of cable news. It’s one of the reasons I have such contempt for those on the left. Hearing the same people who advocate for the most base and perverse ideas in our society claiming to be outraged at the use of the term “sh!thole countries” is preposterous.  First of all, let’s have a little IQ test: What does “racist” mean? Let’s say that I say to you, ” we need to get these illegal Mexicans out of here…..”.  If you think that phrase is “racist”, then you are an ignorant boob. Mexican is a nationality not a race. Somalian is a nationality not a race.  If you cannot understand this fact then you are an idiot, and any debate or conversation with you must be undertaken with that fact in mind.

I’m asking the leftists reading this the following questions: Is there anyone from anywhere that should not be granted entry into the United States? Is being born the only qualification for access to America’s Welfare State? Are the people from another place and culture more important than you, your children and grandchildren? What number of illegal and legal immigrants per year are acceptable to you? Are you aware that 70 million plus foreign born people have emigrated here, under chain migration, in the last 30 years? Is it hard to breathe with your head up your sh!thole?

The truth that leftists, SJW’s, neocons, and progressives fail to realize is that not all cultures are the same, and some are better than others. In our current climate of non-assimilation and equivocation we have no room for error. In case you didn’t know, a lot of the places and countries in this world are dumpster fires.

Haiti is a giant sh!thole.

Muslim countries are hellish sh!tholes.

Much of Central and South America is an illiterate sh!thole.

Virtually the entire continent of Africa is a fetid sh!thole.

North Korea and rural China are sh!tholes.

Want to prove me wrong? Go to these places and tell me otherwise. Then tell me how importing the folks who made their home countries sh!tholes helps America. Then tell me how the same people who advocate for cutting the privates off of little kids in the name of “transgendering”, cutting global population for “climate change”,  and destroying our liberty in the name of political correctness are experts in immigration. After you’re done with that, explain how the same culture that celebrates pimpin’ hos and “freeing the nipple”, as well as the use of crudity and profanity in all of our decrepit and spiritually bankrupt entertainment, is prepared to pass moral judgement on the rest of us.  What a bunch of frauds. Every day they grow more ridiculous and exposed in their fake moral panic……..and it would be funny if it wasn’t so dangerous.

Because it is one thing to have free immigration to jobs. It is another thing to have free immigration to welfare, and you cannot have both. If you have a welfare state, if you have a state in which every resident is promised a certain minimal level of income, regardless of whether he works or not, produces it or not……then it really is an impossible thing. – Milton Friedman

Oprah’s Favorite Things

Another excuse for Hollywood morons to dress fancy and applaud themselves took place the other night, and it was predictably laughable. I’m not sure what the name of this one was as they happen often and for every conceivable purpose, but I think it was the Golden Globes. Evidently the attendees were in mourning for the death-by-suicide of their own industry, and as such were festooned in black for the evening. I wasn’t surprised by much of the event’s festivities, as it was hosted by the fetal-alcohol-syndrome-success-story Seth Myers…..yet the apex of the night was a 10 minute long self-congratulation and warning to the beta-males in the audience performed by The Oprah Winfrey. The response of the progressives? The advice of NBC? Let’s put her up for president.

I have to admit that I have some experience when it comes to The Oprah.  My better half has had a subscription to her magazine for years, and my daily trips to the can usually find me looking at her latest cover-shoot and learning all about her latest weight-loss plan. I don’t know if they work, but the vapid, self congratulatory tone, in addition to a freshly photoshopped image of The O, seem to speed along my movements just fine. So, with my knowledge of all things Oprah in hand, I will impart my reasons why she won’t be president……….and it’s because of my list of Oprah’s Favorite Things.

Privacy. Though Miss Winfrey has been in the public eye non-stop for decades, nobody knows much about her private life. She has carefully crafted an image throughout her career, and done it masterfully. The problem is that under the scrutiny of a run for high office, her absolute control of information will cease to exist. For instance, what’s the deal with Stedman Graham? Sure, we all probably know he’s Oprah’s long time “partner”, but what the hell does that mean? For years there have been stories about their weirdness……and rumors of where her best pal Gayle King fits into the picture. Sorry for giving you that mental image, by the way. Toss in Oprah’s penchant for endorsing fraud religions like “The Secret” and her revolving guru/life-coach list and we’ve got some juicy stuff that she has kept under wraps.

Clout. Oprah has long been able to move things behind the scenes. She has starred in movies, produced movies, and hobnobbed with the Hollywood elite. If she likes a project or idea, those ideas usually get a green light to production. Great, you say? Well, there’s just one problem…….she has worked closely with Harvey Weinstein in order to do those things. There are a multitude of pictures and video clips of her giving him more sugar than she does Stedman, and no doubt she demonstrably knew of his predilections. Will she be able to use her clout to squash the stories of her complicity in his abuses once she throws her hat in the ring for the White House? I doubt it.

Empire. Oprah Winfrey has worked long and hard to build her massive, billion dollar empire. Through absolute control she has managed her brand throughout the years……being the final word in every decision whether it comes to her TV show, her magazines, her OWN network, et cetera. She is the face, the brain, and the owner of all of her properties. There is one problem with this: She is not married and has no heirs. Where will this control freak divest her interests? There is no Oprah Winfrey Jr., nor is there a Stedman Winfrey II…….so where will she offload her empire? With all of the neverending attacks on Trump during his campaign insisting he part with his holdings, as well as the attempt to charge him with violating the Emoluments clause, how can Oprah maintain ownership and control of all that she has built?

Goodwill. Oprah has an enormous amount of goodwill stored up with the general public. From giving away cars to “empowering women”, she has been a marketing genius. Everyone loves her, right? In fact, her Golden Globes speech was received the way that it was because of this stored cache of goodwill. She has provably been complicit in the crimes of Harvey Weinstein, and yet it remains unspoken. Her African girls’ school has had more than one sex scandal, including but not limited to a female teacher molesting her own students. Additionally, how many people has she pissed off in her quest to be the richest, most famous woman on the planet? The idea that there is not a horde of disgruntled former employees and show guests who have a less-than-favorable opinion is a farcical one. A presidential run would tarnish and muddy the gleaming O in a way she has never experienced nor dealt with. Is she ready to destroy her legacy just to appease the rudderless and floundering Progressive left?

There is another factor that would endanger the realization of this Prog-fantasy that hasn’t been addressed…….and it’s the competition. Not Trump or the republican party, either. The democrat party politicians who have their own dreams of running will not be idle like in previous election seasons. There are lots of people who were told to sit down and wait their turn while Hillary Clinton undertook her disastrous campaign, and they either will not, or due to age cannot, sit 2020 out and step aside for a political nobody. The Uniparty has screamed long and loud about the folly of electing the “unqualified and inexperienced” Trump……..how will those soundbites play if Winfrey takes the bait?

Then there is the elephant in the room when it comes to race and race relations. Obama, the left, and the Media has done more to destroy the relationship between races than has even been realized, with their non-stop race baiting and division sowed for cheap political gain.  There was a point in Oprah’s speech at the Golden Globes that reminded me of how tired it has all become. She retold the horror story of a poor black woman raped and murdered by white men, and how those men got away with it. It’s an awful event in history, but it occurred over 73 years ago. Not just before I was born, but before even my father was. In 2018, what is the purpose of relating this sad tale? What did I, or anyone else outside a graveyard, have to do with this injustice? Is America ready to go back to this kind of disgusting use of past tragedy for politics?
