Blast Off! Flight 93

Over at CRB, Publius Decimus Mus blasts Conservative Intellectuals, the Davoisie, Hillary and more. Here's a snapshot:

If conservatives are right about the importance of virtue, morality, religious faith, stability, character and so on in the individual; if they are right about sexual morality or what came to be termed “family values”; if they are right about the importance of education to inculcate good character and to teach the fundamentals that have defined knowledge in the West for millennia; if they are right about societal norms and public order; if they are right about the centrality of initiative, enterprise, industry, and thrift to a sound economy and a healthy society; if they are right about the soul-sapping effects of paternalistic Big Government and its cannibalization of civil society and religious institutions; if they are right about the necessity of a strong defense and prudent statesmanship in the international sphere—if they are right about the importance of all this to national health and even survival, then they must believe—mustn’t they?—that we are headed off a cliff.

And don't kid yourselves about Hillary:

A Hillary presidency will be pedal-to-the-metal on the entire Progressive-left agenda, plus items few of us have yet imagined in our darkest moments. Nor is even that the worst. It will be coupled with a level of vindictive persecution against resistance and dissent hitherto seen in the supposedly liberal West only in the most “advanced” Scandinavian countries and the most leftist corners of Germany and England. We see this already in the censorship practiced by the Davoisie’s social media enablers; in the shameless propaganda tidal wave of the mainstream media; and in the personal destruction campaigns—operated through the former and aided by the latter—of the Social Justice Warriors. We see it in Obama’s flagrant use of the IRS to torment political opponents, the gaslighting denial by the media, and the collective shrug by everyone else.
It’s absurd to assume that any of this would stop or slow—would do anything other than massively intensify—in a Hillary administration.

On the "mystic chord" of "mass immigration":

Oh, right—there’s that other issue. The sacredness of mass immigration is the mystic chord that unites America’s ruling and intellectual classes. Their reasons vary somewhat. The Left and the Democrats seek ringers to form a permanent electoral majority. They, or many of them, also believe the academic-intellectual lie that America’s inherently racist and evil nature can be expiated only through ever greater “diversity.” The junta of course craves cheaper and more docile labor. It also seeks to legitimize, and deflect unwanted attention from, its wealth and power by pretending that its open borders stance is a form of noblesse oblige. The Republicans and the “conservatives”? Both of course desperately want absolution from the charge of “racism.”... 
This is insane. This is the mark of a party, a society, a country, a people, a civilization that wants to die. Trump, alone among candidates for high office in this or in the last seven (at least) cycles, has stood up to say: I want to live. I want my party to live. I want my country to live. I want my people to live. I want to end the insanity.

So he comes out reluctantly swinging for Trump and in light of the above, perhaps Conservative Intellectuals  and their Washington Generals should be thankful that Hillary's looking more and more like a dying ghost.

You can read the whole thing here.

The "conservative" intellectuals inside the Washington Beltway are concerned about the end of the gravy train that they ride. That's the extent of it. They've lived soft lives sitting on leather couches in the old clubs drinking expensive Scotch, bullshitting about this and that, impressing themselves and their coteries with their erudite banter.

Most of them don't know what they'd do if they had to get an honest job.

I am thankful that hopefully the Lord will answer our prayers and help us to turn the country around.

I'm not quite sold on Trump. He's a liberal Democrat in many cases. But if he can restrict immigration then I'm fore him. To a degree.

But this election will be bad. Vote for Hillary, the corrupt liberal democrat. trump the buffoonish liberal democrat. Even the libertarians have nominated two big government liberal Republicans.

I scorn them, LL.

Must pray harder, Linda!

Obey Your Rulers, Infidel!

Pray it's not Hillary.
