We appear to be locked in for the next year or two:
- Trump voters are angry, fired up and engaged in politics while Biden voters are increasingly disillusioned with politics
- Clearly, the 2022 midterms will be determined more by waxing anti-Biden sentiment than waning anti-Trump sentiment. This assumes that Blumpf will have the strategic patience to wait until after the 2022 midterms to announce that he is running for president
- The 2022 midterms will be another round of backlash politics
- Trump voters continue to radicalize in the sense that our ideas on lots of issues are permeating the mainstream. We will continue to “win the argument” with normies without anything we want being reflected in policy. Sadly, we live in an oligarchy, not a democracy
- The Red Dogs are going home, which is to say, Never Trump suburban voters who are traditional Republican voters who were alienated by Trump are returning to the GOP. Many of these people are angry about Joe Biden’s spending, budget deficits, inflation, etc.
- The GOP will continue to do nothing except block Biden’s agenda and position itself to reap the benefits of another round of backlash politics
- As a vessel of lib owning and backlash politics, the GOP will almost certainly retake the House and Senate. The libs will be owned like in Virginia on a national scale
- The GOP isn’t going to change its policy agenda which it will continue to sell to the donors. After giving lip service to voters, Republican politicians will then focus on delivering victories for their donors on the issues that they care about like tax cuts or Israel
- Because it lacks a positive governing agenda and is nothing but a vessel of backlash politics, the GOP will inherit and squander another congressional majority. Joe Biden will likely be blamed for dissatisfaction with congressional gridlock. So, the GOP will likely lose its next majority in the 2026 and 2028 elections, not unlike how it lost its majority in Blumpf’s first term.
Anyway, that’s how I see the road ahead in the immediate future.
“LAS VEGAS — Republican megadonor Miriam Adelson — the widow of casino mogul and longtime GOP kingmaker Sheldon Adelson — is staging a return to politics, positioning herself to be a force in the 2022 midterms and beyond.
Adelson, who with her husband formed the Republican Party’s most powerful donor couple for the last decade, quietly held meetings in her Las Vegas home with a select group of GOP leaders and potential 2024 presidential candidates in the last few days. It represents a coming out for the 75-year-old Adelson, who has kept a low political profile since her husband’s death in January, turning down requests for sit-downs with candidates and keeping her multibillion-dollar checkbook shut.
Those familiar with the discussions — which coincided with the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual conference at the lavish, Sheldon Adelson-built Venetian hotel on the Strip — say they were designed to relay a straightforward message: Despite her husband’s death, Adelson plans to dole out big checks and be an influential player shaping the future of the party, which over the past decade has reaped more than a half-billion dollars of the family’s fortune.
According to a person familiar with the talks, the list of figures Adelson met with this week included House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and National Republican Senatorial Committee Chair Rick Scott, who are helping to guide the party’s midterm efforts. She also huddled with a group of Republicans regarded as potential presidential hopefuls in 2024: former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Vice President Mike Pence, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. …”
As we saw the other day, Trump recently lamented the fact that Israel no longer dominates Congress because of The Squad. He just came out and said that Jewish donors like the Adelsons were buying our foreign policy. It is “anti-Semitic” for people like us to notice things like this.
Note: I’m just going to watch this shit show. Moving forward, I might vote in state and local elections. I intend to focus on my own personal life.
