Have American Voters Indicted The GOP?

10 11 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

“Republicans In Shock” was one of the headlines at the once-conservative and bellwether Drudge website.[2]  Another was “Fox News Freaks,” which aptly describes the reaction by most at the largely-conservative news network’s roundtable of its anchors and invited guests.  This brings to mind the folk tale about Chicken Little, who believes the world is coming to an end, and proclaims: “The sky is falling.”[3]

Political pundit and former Clinton adviser Dick Morris says nonsense.  The Republicans have made enormous progress; and Donald Trump has made all the difference.  Without him, none of this would have been possible.[4]

When I left the U.S. Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.  This was the resounding message or takeaway from Tuesday’s national elections, and why I have been an Independent for so many years.[5]

Tragically, we live in a Kardashian nation where bimbos can become billionaires; organized religion is despised, and God is honored in the breach; human lives are devalued, with abortions on demand—or Infanticide—being championed; and Brain Dead Joe Biden in the White House, with Kamala Harris waiting in the wings for him to croak.

Our allies don’t understand or respect us, while our enemies—principally Xi Jinping in China, Russia’s butcher Vladimir Putin and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un—are moving globally like chess masters to weaken if not destroy us. In short, the inmates are in charge of the asylum; and the GOP’s predicted “red wave” did not materialize . . . although Donald Trump’s endorsed candidates were very successful.

American politics seems to reside in the status quo; and one wonders whether Donald Trump can breath life into its body and soul before the 2024 presidential elections.  His “MAGA” or “Make America Great Again” followers have to be dispirited.  And the Trump haters are dancing with joy, believing that he may be indicted and fade into the rear-view mirror of history.

Like Mark Twain, the reports of his death and political demise may be an exaggeration and premature.[6]  Like Lazarus, he may rise from the grave.[7]  Those who wish the worst for Trump, and believe he is a crass opportunist, may find themselves on the wrong side of history.  He and Mark Twain may have the last laugh; and may not be consigned to the ash heap of history.

In the interim, the midterm elections are essentially over; and Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and their thoroughly-evil Democrats must be counted as losers.  While in the vernacular of the surfing world, it wasn’t known as “wipeout”—a red wave did engulf them.  By all reckoning, they did lose control of the House of Representatives; and yes, it’s an opportune time to gloat and for “payback,” after everything they have put our great country and all Americans through.[8]

Many of us began as Democrats, and are enraged by how our former party has become so radicalized.  Perhaps George Orwell described it best in his prescient Animal Farm, when he wrote about the takeover by the Pigs, and how they subjugated the other animals.[9]  Clearly, the Pigs today—or the uber-Leftists, “Progressives” and eco-Nazis—must be obliterated, never to rise again.[10]

Every single policy change that they initiated after stealing the 2020 election from Donald Trump must be reversed and eliminated forever.  Their lackeys in the media who covered for them and became co-conspirators, via “Fake News,” must be fired.  Elon Musk threw out the number of 75 percent with respect to Twitter’s staff.  It must be decimated.[11]  At America’s corrupt “Department of Justice” and FBI, the housecleaning must be complete and unprecedented.[12]

This leads to a discussion of 2024, and who will represent each of America’s two major political parties.  California’s Governor Gavin Newsom, who is related to Nancy Pelosi, may lead the Democrats’ list.  But his star is fading, inter alia, because of his wife’s links to Harvey Weinstein.[13]  Donald Trump is expected to run again, perhaps with Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis as his running mate, which may be formidable and unbeatable.

All of this is occurring against the backdrop of a possible nuclear confrontation, which might destroy the United States.  This too is a direct result of Joe Biden’s mental incapacity, and criminality.[14]  Where is God in the midst of such changes, and what so many perceive as utter chaos and Godlessness?[15]

[10]  Joe Biden must be impeached and removed from the presidency.  Aside from his obvious mental incapacities, he is a criminal and must be treated as such.

See, e.g., https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11368895/President-Biden-claims-FIFTY-FOUR-states-concerns-age-continue-mount.html (“Sure about that, Joe?

Obviously, what to do about Kamala Harris is the next order of business.  She is pathetic, and the laughingstock of the world.

This article is weak, but it discusses many of the relevant issues.  Among those that are implicit is Jim Jordan’s role as a future Speaker, replacing Kevin McCarthy and Nancy Pelosi.

Groups such as J Street, which champion reconciliation between the Palestinians and the Israelis, have become de facto arms of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), or “DNC-lite.”  They preach hatred of Donald Trump, the MAGA (or “Make America Great Again”) movement, and Republicans; and they desperately try to avoid becoming irrelevant and losing their fund-raising capabilities.

Twitter Engages In Racist Censorship, And Is Un-American

18 09 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Twitter—based in the uber-Leftist and crime-ridden San Francisco—has suspended the accounts of those who tell the truth about Oprah, Meghan Markle and others.  This constitutes racism.

Oprah has admitted that she was a prostitute.[2].  By the same token, the UK’s Prince Philip warned about marrying Meghan Markle.[3]

For decades, Hollywood’s “casting couch” has been the way that young, aspiring actresses have risen in Tinseltown.  The sleazebag Harvey Weinstein used it to the nth degree.  Jeffrey Epstein had his on the East Coast and elsewhere.

Certainly, Meghan Markle is a racist ho, who has used the casting couch to reach the British Monarchy, which Prince Philip warned about.  But Twitter wants to whitewash both Oprah and her.

Having grown up in Hollywood—and having two friends who just retired at the very top of Hollywood’s two biggest studios—and having worked in the U.S. Senate where I saw young women prostitute themselves and be used and abused like groupies at rock concerts, Twitter would be engaging in wholesale and blatant racist censorship by suspending the account of anyone who tells the truth.

Twitter and Facebook are part of “Fake News,” which may have skewed the 2020 election results by “burying” the Hunter Biden laptop story, and other potentially-damaging disclosures about the Biden family’s criminal enterprises.

Also, they lionized the thug George Floyd, and championed “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups, whose thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels burned our cities, killed or hurt innocent Americans including our police, and destroyed black and other businesses.

By engaging in the wholesale distortion of the truth, and the insidious burying of history, such disseminators of “Fake News” have fanned the flames of racism against our police and other Americans. The results are evident today in unchecked crime and lawlessness, unsafe cities, and the deterioration of our great nation and the lives of millions of Americans.

Lastly, will Elon Musk clean out the woke worms at Twitter if he takes over?  Time will tell.  If he doesn’t, Twitter should be shut down permanently.  It engages in the denial of free speech, which is a fundamental right of all Americans.

Also, like the rest of “Fake News,” it attempts to shut down and/or destroy those who support our great President Donald Trump, at a time when our enemies—China and Russia—are determined to weaken or destroy us.

Teslas Must Be Banned From American Roads

6 12 2019


  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Josh Saunders has written for the UK’s Daily Mail:

This is the shocking moment a Tesla driver was filmed sleeping behind the wheel as his self-driving car traveled at high speeds.

Clint Olivier captured the passed-out male as his car kept-up with other vehicles on the busy Interstate 5 in Los Angeles, California.

In the footage, a short haired driver can be seen with his head against the window of the black Tesla car and appears to be asleep.

Law states that people using Automated Driving Systems (ADS), including self-driving and autopilot features, ‘must be ready to take back control at any time.’

The clip had been watched more than 138,000 times as of Friday morning.

In the video, Olivier and his wife Alisha Gallon drove alongside the vehicle and at times saw the car speed ahead of them.

‘He[‘]s totally asleep… this is crazy,’ Gallon can be heard saying.

Meanwhile the driver remained sound-asleep throughout[,] only waking-up at the end of the 34 second clip.

Currently 29 states have legislation related to self-driving cars, laws are individually related to manufacturers. While the remaining states currently have no legislation on the book relating to the vehicles.

There are five levels of Automatic Driving System, the first three all require humans to either keep their hands on the wheel or to be ready to intervene at any time.

Levels four and five are currently being developed but have not been installed in vehicles.

These new developments will not require any human intervention other than in ‘certain conditions.’

Self-driving cars work through a series of cameras, radars and sensors, which use radio waves, light pulses and imagery to work out what is in front of the vehicle.

From there the car can adjust its speed to match what is considered to be safe in its surroundings.

[Tesla] CEO Elon Musk announced in May that all new models of the 3, X and S, have full self-driving capabilities.

Other car manufacturers also produce a range of automated driving systems[.][2]

This is not the first time that this has happened, by any stretch of the imagination. It is clear that the Tesla is an “accident waiting to happen,” and that it must be banned from American roads.

American and international lawyers may gear up for major class action lawsuits that will put the company out of business—and have it join the ranks of the DeLorean, Edsel and massive numbers of auto brands that no longer exist, and are in the dustbin of automotive history.

Also, Luke Kenton has written for the Daily Mail

Dozens of Tesla drivers in California were forced to wait in an extensive line after what should’ve been a quick stop at a Supercharger station turned into an hours-long ordeal.

Shanon Stellini was travelling through Kettleman City on November 30 when she stumbled across a backlog of around 50 of the electric cars waiting to recharge in a half-mile line outside of at a station near Interstate 5.

‘Bet they wish they had gas’, quipped Stellini’s partner in a video she captured of the chaos – but for the drivers stranded in the stagnant line the issue was certainly no laughing matter.

The Kettleman City Supercharger station – located halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco – is already immensely popular, but even with 40 charging stalls on-site the facility was still overrun by the overwhelming demand that one of the year’s busiest travel times brings.

To make matters worse, simultaneous re-charging slows down the speed of charging for everyone – encumbering a process that can already take up to as long as 75 minutes.

It’s unclear how long the Tesla drivers were forced to wait, however, one disgruntled commuter tweeted that he’d been waiting in the line for 40 minutes but only appeared to be ‘half way there’.

With Tesla’s Model 3 now being produced in mass, there are currently thought to be more than 400,000 Teslas on the roads of America.

But the surge in popularity has exposed a series of flaws in the Supercharger network’s operations this holiday season, which is sure to give the Elon Musk-owned company food for thought as the fallout seen in Kettleman City was not an isolated incident.

A day earlier, a video titled ‘Tesla Energy Crisis’ revealed a sizable line of 15 Teslas waiting for their turn at a Supercharger station in San Luis Obispo around 4.45pm on Thanksgiving day

Teslas could be seen wrapping around the outer edge of the Madonna Inn as families waited inside the running cars for a chance to refuel.

For a Model S Tesla at a Supercharger station, it will take about 20 minutes to charge 50 percent and 40 minutes to charge 80 percent.

Tesla’s website says that drivers will have enough to finish their trip on 80 percent, but owners can reach 100 percent fueled in 75 minutes.

Tesla’s Supercharger stations are described as the ‘world’s fastest charging network’ on the company’s website.

‘Supercharger stations are conveniently located near desirable amenities like restaurants, shops and WiFi hotspots. Each station contains multiple Superchargers to get you back on the road quickly,’ the company said.

It’s unclear how long the car owners waited to reach a Supercharger, but the video’s owner said the station was just given new equipment to help with the influx of holiday travelers.

‘The previous day, Tesla brought a Megapack that is said to be good for charging [approximately] 100 Teslas,’ the video post said.

Social media users shared photos of the Supercharger stations accompanied with Megapack chargers arriving to San Luis Obispo on Wednesday morning.

‘Megapack,’ a new massive energy storage product, was launched by Tesla in July and is being used in portable Supercharger stations to help bolster the company’s charging infrastructure.

Megapack will also be used in installations like the Moss Landing project in California with PG&E, which is a part of a new cost-effective energy storage project announced in June.

‘To match global demand for massive battery storage projects like Hornsdale, Tesla designed and engineered a new battery product specifically for utility-scale projects: Megapack,’ the company said in a blog.

During instances when Tesla drivers are expected to make long trips, like the holiday season, the tech company can roll out Mobile Supercharger units powered by Megapacks to several locations.

The US, parts of Asia, Europe and the Middle East have a combined total of 1,636 Supercharger Stations with 14,497 Superchargers.[3]

California, in particular, has experienced energy “blackouts,” which have affected millions of its residents and may last for another decade.  Its electric utility PG&E has imposed mandatory cessations of electric power ostensibly to reduce the risks of fires triggered by the company’s network.  Presumably vehicles like the Tesla become immovable “dead weights” when this occurs, which further exposes Tesla owners to the risks of serious injuries or deaths if they are unable to escape the raging infernos.

Their limited ranges when compared with gasoline-powered vehicles, the problems with disposing of Tesla batteries safely from an ecological standpoint, the absence of dealerships that can fix Tesla problems, the staggering debts that Tesla has incurred, all augur for major problems with the Tesla.  There is also the risk that the company’s founder will implode psychologically as many of his fellow bipolar sufferers have done over time.

Will the Tesla survive?  The odds are against it; however, it is not dead and buried yet.  It has loyal followers—and vast numbers of detractors who consider it the “badge” of America’s ultra-Left and eco-Nazis, and concur that it must be banned.
