The 'Resistance' "Spectacle Of Roaring Dishonesty" Is A Disgrace

Authored by James Howard Kunstler via,

And Now The Schiff Memo...

The excruciating quandary President Trump presents to the nation is dragging the sad remnant of the thinking class ever-deeper into a netherworld of desperation, paranoia, and mendacity that may exceed even their own official fantasies about the enemy in the White House.

Everything about the lumbering, blundering occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue drives his Dem/Prog opponents - or #Resistance, if you will - plumb batshit: his previous incarnations as a shady NYC real estate schmeikler, as a TV clown, as a business deadbeat, as a self-described pussy-grabber… his vulgar casinos, his mystifying hair-do, his baggy suits and dangling neckties, his arrant, childish, needless lying about trivialities, his intemperate tweets, his unappetizing associates, his loutish behavior in foreign lands, his fractured, tortured syntax, his obvious insincerity, his sneery facial contortions… and lots lots more — and of course that doesn’t even touch the actual policy positions he struggles to articulate.

In sum, Trump represents such a monumentally grotesque embarrassment to the permanent Washington establishment that they will pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the removal of this odious caitiff.

And in the process abandon all reason and decency.

To complicate matters, there really are policy differences that, despite Mr. Trump’s oafish profferings, must somehow be faced for the sake of the country’s future — two of the clearest, just for example, being whether we will have coherent, enforceable immigration laws and whether we will continue to allow the sale of tactical military rifles to the general public.

These are matters, by the way, which people of sound mind and honorable intentions could actually resolve through open legislative debate. And beyond these two examples stand an array of even deeper, urgent, thorny questions as to how this political economy might navigate through a bottleneck of hardships rushing toward us, namely, the systemic failures of finance, income inequality, health care, education, energy, agriculture and the global competition for dwindling resources.

But the activities of the #Resistance appear determined instead to drive the country needlessly toward war with Russia, the arch-hobgoblin they have conjured up like some Hollywood computer graphical alien monster of slavering insectile malice. Having created the monster, and the story-board to go with it, they have filled their own minds with a horror of their own creation, orders of magnitude worse than the rather pathetic figure of Donald J. Trump, the con-man who surprised himself by getting elected president at an anxious moment in history.

And in creating this horror movie, the #Resistance is dangerously perverting institutions that may not recover from being written into the script. For instance, the Department of Justice, its subsidiary, the FBI, and sundry intel outfits whose highest officers have been enlisted as cast members. Can I be alone in wondering how these agencies can mount massive prosecutions of nobodies like George Papadopoulos and Rick Gates while ignoring the much better documented intrigues of officials such as Bruce Ohr, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Sally Yates, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, John Brennan, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Hillary Clinton, and possibly even the sainted Barack Obama? Or how they can retain any credibility if these figures just slide off into the gloaming with get-out-of-jail-free cards.

In case you’d like to know, I am personally uncomfortable about Donald Trump as President. I can imagine scenarios in which he might have to be removed from office by constitutional means, in particular, the 25th amendment. But the spectacle of roaring dishonesty mounted by his adversaries from even before the election of 2016 disgraces the very class citizens who we used to depend on to think clearly about the fate of the nation.

"I can imagine scenarios in which he might have to be removed from office by constitutional means, in particular, the 25th amendment."

Let's see, a year after a special prosecutor was appointed to investigate alleged Trump collusion with the Russians, not any such thing has been found. 

However, blatant collusion with Russians and foreign agents by DNC/Hillary, FBI and FISA courts actively used by Obama administration to spy on a political candidate, Lois Lerner pleading the fifth, etc. and not a peep from the MSM... that is one hell of a rabbit hole we've gone down into.…

Fuck you, deep state apologist.  Who the hell is this "we" to whom you refer?  I sure as hell never depended on "the resistance" for anything other than hysterical hypocrisy & double-think.

While the deep state and their liberal tools claim "Russian conspiracy" there are dual-citizens from Israel in our own US Congress who are actively and openly colluding with the media, with the DOJ, with the FBI, and with Obama appointees including the judiciary, and which control foreign media outlets like that should register as foreign agents just like Why do they, every one of them, get an automatic pass? Why isn't Mueller investigating Israeli political medding in the USA? Why not indeed. The Israelis don't even try to hide it. Meanwhile their operatives (whose Jewish names go on and on in their own leaked documents and emails) produce fake "dossiers" (French for bullshit), leak confidential state secrets, destroy evidence, fabricate evidence, deceive the courts, violate their constitutional oaths, collude, conspire, and even murder.

One must wonder in amazement however, how incredibly effective the Russians actually are, in creating raving maniacs out of the MSM spokesmouths, DNC snowflakes, Twitter do-nothings, and Antifa metrosexuals who obsessively spew their hate at father-figure Trump. They will be exhausted in another 7 years, anyway.

Have you not noticed that, having failed to frighten anyone with a smidgen of intelligence by saying "assault weapons", the loons have switched to saying "weapons of war". They want to ban the public's ownership of "weapons of war". The left has to keep redefining everything or they lose by default.

And the Armalite is not scary looking. An MRAP coming through my front hedges is scary looking. Nancy Pelosi is scary looking.

I still don't understand why "The Resistance" has not been laughed out of the country.  Pro-status-quo = "The Resistance"?  Deep-State subservient career politicians = "The Resistance"???  If that is not a joke then it is because it is a SICK joke.  How did they ever manage to keep that label beyond the first day?

Any who claim to be a part of "The Resistance" should be mercilessly and openly mocked.  Their real name should be "The Subservience" or "The Compliance".  "The-Bend-Over-And-Continue-To-Take-It-Up-The-Assance."

The zionists own the US regime that dominates the States.  They don't consider it collusion when their "special friend" is deeper than a tick.  It's unfortunate that those claiming to represent the people are more ignorant than intelligence departments working for a foreign nation on our soil.

And CUFI(Christians United For Israel) is an invention of the antichrist followers of Pharisaism(judaism).  Christians are to not be yoked with either the antichrist tradition of Judaism or Islam, as there is no concord between Christ and Belial.  The "jews" and muslims both deny Jesus Christ, the son of God, come in the flesh, and both preach a different "Jesus".

Monotheists all.

The foundation of monotheism is florid schizophrenia, the hearing of voices and hallucinations.

The Christ you follow was a Roman propaganda tool originally to defang the Maccabees, and later as a population control instrument.

As Dr. Jordan Peterson said, in times of chaos the only shield we have is the truth.

Abandon it at your peril.

 be careful which ancient fences you are quick to tear down, 

Monotheists have no "ancient fences". They either expropriated older fences or recklessly destroyed others.

Thus they have no truck with Honour, Virtue or gratitude to the ancestors for the very air they breath.

You must have missed the bit about schizophrenia, being unable to lucidly argue for sanity.

Monotheism is not "ancient". It is a set of insane modern cults that have not delivered on their oft-repeated virtue signaling claims of peace and brotherly love.

On the contrary, they have brought us witch burnings and war.

1300 years is long enough for them to deliver on their promises.

Not "written into" or "perverting" for all. Some have been writing the scripts. Some were created to do evil.

The FBI was birthed by the Red Scare. Create a threat. Then announce the response to the perceived threat. The response that will be with us forever.

Al Qaeda. Global War on Terror. DHS.

Bank Panics. The FED.

The Government is just showing its long time bipartisan nature of corruption in full bloom.

A Super Bloom of Corruption.

Please keep worrying about a potential eruption in Yellowstone.

Ignore what's happening here and now that is ending life as we know it.

Indeed, fuck this Cuntfur dipshit.

We elected Trump precisely as a massive fuck you to the left and people like him.

And for all his flaws he's still a million times better than that satanic hag.

All NeverTrumpers are cowards and vermin.

Never forget that in a tough election they bent over for the left and betrayed us while WE did the heavy lifting to prevent Hildabeast from destroying what's left of the country.

And they are even worse than the left because there can be nothing more insidious than a traitor undermining you from within.

I want to see every Neo-Cohen and NeverTrumper hanging from a lamppost starting with that faggot Shapiro and ending with Bill Kristol flayed alive.

When you Indict, Arrest, Enprison, Convict & Execute the following Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths at Large then perhaps the American People will consider any attempt at Gun Confiscation an Act of War.


Bush Senior +Bill & Hillary Clinton + Bush Jr. (Cheany Handler) + Obama = CIA


That’s 30 years of Infiltration at all Levels of every Intel, Law Enforcement Agencies, DOJ & virtually every Level of Government, NGO & Front Companies by the aforementioned Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths at the CIA since they Executed Kenndedy.




And, your Tyrannical Lawlessness!!!


Last time I checked.


We, the Republic owes absolutely NO alegence to any of the three Crimes Familes I mentioned or the Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths at the CIA.


Eliminate the Familes & the House of Cards Collapse.

I agree with the headline, but since it's a Kunstler article the substance is laced with utter crap.  Like this:

"... his arrant, childish, needless lying about trivialities, his intemperate tweets, his unappetizing associates, his loutish behavior in foreign lands, his fractured, tortured syntax, his obvious insincerity, his sneery facial contortions ..."

... all of which are fundamentally spin-doctored inventions of the propagandists who have been tempermentally blaring their opposition  24/7 for almost two years. 

Ferchrissakes, the article purports to be addressing this very same manipulative impulse to fabricate a politically useful truth. 

Why is it that so many pundits who dare to challenge the Resistance narrative even a little bit, must first preface their remarks with a defensive disclaimer about what a Dumb Bad Unappetizing Unfashionable guy Trump is, and how maybe he shouldn't be president?

That's why I loathe PCR. He always has to spout propaganda as GOSPEL, before chastising his fellow deep thinking never Trumpains and deep staters for being disingenuous. All you cock sucking anti Trumpers and resistance fuks are a mess.  There really is a Trump derangement syndrome.  There powers of persuasion are gone and there frustration, anger and hypocrisy is evident.  Trump is winning. He still stands and you cucks are just eating each other alive.

Cuntler loves the Klintons and their KKK (Klinton Krime Klan) and he has an overwhelming faggot obsession for Obunghole, the Dronemeister, and Obunghole's husband Milkey. He's also a loyal lover of the Anglo-Zionist Fake News Media that has helped propel America into 60 years of never ending wars around the world (not that he ever had the balls to don a uniform). But, he only became outraged when a non-member of the Deep State Kabal decided to run for President. Hypocrisy much anyone?
