Poker 101

So Danang Dick Blumenthal, America’s leading proponent of stolen valor, thinks he’s in a position to make threats, saying, “Nothing is off the table. If Republicans recklessly & reprehensively force a SCOTUS vote before the election — nothing is off the table,” in a Tweet. In itself a cowardly way to make a mealy-mouthed threat. I think that should be taken as a challenge, myself.

Cause you see, when he tells me that the Demonrats have everything on the table, that tells me that it’s the last hand, and when we win, they’ve gone bust, been taken to the cleaners, any of the similar phrases you prefer. And it’s true, although they’ll flip the card table and try to destroy the parlor, just as four flushers always do. Evidently, while he was enjoying those deferments, he never learned to play poker with men.

We probably shouldn’t blame them too much though, after all, they’re playing with scared money they can’t afford to lose. Something both my dad and Brett Maverick taught me not to do. See they actually thought that after all the good stuff that has happened to almost all Americans during President Trump’s term, that the Wuhan Flu would force the country to its knees, and give them a victory. Whoops again, The Atlanta Fed is projecting third-quarter growth at an annualized 31 % (4% is considered good).

But who is not sharing in it? Why those poor souls who haven’t escaped from the blue cities and states, who are still locked down. Especially California which is simply suicidal. New York, Portland, and Seattle are looking at losing their federal funds. It’s going to get nothing but worse

All the threats aren’t really directed at the President though. Mostly because even the Dems have probably figured out that he ain’t gonna cut and run. They’re directed at the Senate, which has some pretty week spines. I’m not much of a fan of Mitch McConnell, but he has set his career on getting conservative judges confirmed, and he’s done a heckuva job of it. He’s not going to throw it away now.

I happened to reread the Book of Esther recently. You remember the story, Esther was a queen in Xerxes harem when Haman convinced Xerxes to let him kill the Jews. The law said she could only go to the king when summoned. To go without that summons usually meant death. Her uncle Mordecai convinced her that this is what she was born for, to save her people. She did and did save her people. And we gained a new expression, As high as the gallows of Haman. This is why we elected the Republican majority to the Senate.

That’s what the Dems see in the distance. When Trump wins, and he will if fraud can be kept at reasonable levels, then comes the rest, the attempted coup, the Durham indictments, even the prosecution of the mayor of Seattle, not to mention rolling up using even sedition charges BLM/Antifa, right up the chain to their financiers, who also finance the Democratic Party. With a conservative Supreme Court.

See, the President is all in too. Opposing the Dems, threats of violence are the law, federal law enforcement, Barr’s DOJ, not to even mention the Federalized National Guard. And he’s not playing with scared money, because he knows a winning hand when he sees one.

It’s a bad year to be a Democrat, 2020 is. 2021 may well be worse.

    Isn’t there a law against threats against one’s country? How does this not apply when the threats are coming from within the government? Can’t Pelosi and Nadler and the ‘usual suspects’ be charged with treason?

      Treason takes an overt act with two witnesses, mostly because the King used to misuse it. But sedition is possible, but can you imagine the riots that would ensue? I wouldn’t rule it out after the election though.

        And what about ‘incitement to riot’?

          Notice how carefully they phrase everything. Unless there are documents, which is not impossible, it would be very hard to prove, however if BLM/Antifa is a terrorist organization then financing it could come under RICO, which entail confiscation of pretty much all assets. That’s what I would expect, maybe without RICO though.
