Eric Cantor Explains Himself - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture


In his first press conference since the loss last night, it is widely expected that Eric Cantor will resign as House Majority Leader (on July 31). Of course, we are sure Goldman Sachs and BlackRock are fascinated to hear how they are going to get their money back?

The Beltway was all jammed up the other day, some guy was walking through the line of stopped cars with a can. So I rolled down the window and asked him what was up with the traffic.


He said some terrorists had taken Cantor hostage and were demanding a $1 million ransom or they would douse him with gasoline and set him on fire, so he was taking up a collection. So I asked him how much everybody was giving, and he said about a gallon on average.

Nobody is invincible. Everybody gets theirs when the time is right. The slowest dope wakes up eventually, keep talking one on one to whoever listens. One day America will find a new understanding and any third rate whore fuck like Cantor will get the boot pronto.

Say what you will about Ann Coulter, the lady is smart and has a sharp wit.  Today she went on about Cantor and immigration.  She kept wondering why Chuck Schumer was/is so much in favor of "amnesty" when Israel will send "undocumented workers" back across the border faster than they can say "el senor Schumer for presidente por favor."  Wonder why she didn't make the Israel deportation/US amensty hypocritacal connection for Cantor as well.  Probably because it is a good barb and Cantor is already in the dust bin.

I called up my Rep, Chris van Hollen, to suggest: 1) impeachment for Obama (Berghdal, VA, where to start?), 2) complete repeal of Obamacare, and 3) deportation of all 30 million illegals.  I don't think I was ranting, but somewhere int here the line went dead and I didn't notice.  It was probably when I suggested that they call Jimmy Carter and  ask him to recall how his career soared after the Mariel boatlift.

Let me introduce you to Jimmy Obama.  Carter has to feel good about no longer being the greatest bumbler to have occupied the Oval Office.

Nice that the jihadists have a blackhawk helicopter in their collection to complement the predator drone we lost about 18 months ago.

I'm sad to say the only way I can crack a smile is to envision all of them with meat hooks in their throats hanging from lampposts. Please, would some one explain how this is different? Or are we just high fiving each other just being in the moment?

I've always thought if we removed the incumbents we would see this country get back on track. I'm not so sure anymore because I just don't trust the motivations of those who take their place.

There have been a half dozen deals on Cantor in the last day.

I can't think of a better "fellow traveler" to be shown the door.

But there are another 10,000 across the Deep State and the Fed that are keeping Amerika in debt bondage - never-mind "American Oligarchs" and billionaire vultures - no difference between Koch or Soros.

That said and after "the shock" it is vital for everyone to recognize that "The Tea Party" IS NOT a political party, it is certainly not "a radical wing of the republican party" nor the whipping boy of establishment democrats.

The Tea Party is a Movement and for lack of a better description is the place where the disenfranchised and wrecked middle of all Americans - the independents - have no place other to go.  It is where the underemployed spied-on lied-to go when the music stops.

The two big organized parties are the Coke and Pepsi of politics and both amounts in copious doses rotted your teeth.

America's core has been rotted out by these lazy crooks and EVERYBODY not on the take is sick of it.

Republicans are seen as nothing more than impotent insider traders who would sell out their grandma for another line of blow on a hooker's ass. One can only feel bad for the hooker these days.

Democrats on the other hand resemble a pre Night of the Long Knives Nazi party, whose chief allies include the Googleplex who answers to Israel and the corporate surveillance welfare state and the Fed and its criminal shareholders (banks).

But reason this. Who is "your Cantor" in your state, district, county and city?  Who is keeping you down?  Where (exactly) are their offices?  Who gets their money? Who keeps them in office? These are practical pieces of actionable intelligence.

You can pat yourself on the back for what accidentally happened in Virginia, but what is going on in your neck of the woods?

It's up to you to get out there and take your county back and otherwise rollback the endless parade of oppression that is only getting stronger each day.

The social contract is broken.  The country is being raped six ways to Sunday.  There is no law and every crisis is an engineered excuse to make terrible ideas mandatory and otherwise extract your family's wealth and bury your free will.

If something (anything) is getting better, then by all means let every politician run on that platform.  Until then reality is going to leave a mark on the unprepared.

Well now, here's something I did not know until a moment ago:

"North Carolina banking giant BB&T helped endow David Brat's professorship, in a program meant to promote the absolutist free-market philosophy of Ayn Rand."  ...according to "The big bank that blessed Brat's upset of Eric Cantor" at

So, now I'm completely confused, especially the "BB&T helped ...promote the absolutist free-market philosophy of Ayn Rand."  ...And, a guy sympathetic to those views winning a seat in Congress.

Man, Cantor is screwed. When mobsters pay you money for influence, you're supposed to use it to make sure you get reelected- not just on coke and whores and for yourself. He may end up in the same place as Jimmy Hoffa-wherever that is.

He can still talk the talk - but he stopped walking the walk... Now he gets to take a hike...

I'm sure this traitor will end up in some corner office at Goldman.  At least we'll know where he is when the hangings begin.

He's a Jeffery WEINER look a like.  Let's hang them both.

Avice to Cantor. Avoid tall Goldman bank buildings, or Goldman owned nailgun stores.
