    Say, What Does This Shift In Gallup Party Identification Really Mean?

    There are actually two shifts in the trends from Gallup’s latest polling on party identification, and both cut against the grain of media narratives of late. A few friends and readers pointed this out to me yesterday and asked what it might mean for the election. At least on the surface, they suggest that the fortunes of Donald Trump and the GOP might not be quite as dire as they appear — and that voter modeling might not have caught up to that.

    SEE ALSO: Dem and GOP candidates for Utah governor cut campaign ad … together

    In the partisan split, Republicans took a surprising lead last month — by one point, granted, but it was a +8 shift in the gap since June:

    That is a significant shift — not so much as a gain for Republicans since June (+2), but as a drain of Democrats (-6). That’s outside of a margin-of-error shift, meaning that this looks like a significant decline of Democrats’ standing since Joe Biden’s primary win. What’s more, this took place over a period of time when news was breaking more against Trump and the GOP rather than in their favor. It’s the lowest percentage of Democrats in Gallup’s polling since February of this year, when the party was in the middle of its Biden-Bernie primary fight.

    Not coincidentally, it’s also the highest percentage of independents since that time as well (actually 45% in January, when Democrats and Republicans tied at 27%). Gallup also polls independents separately on party leaning, and while the trend there is a little more subtle, it also offers hope that the GOP are picking up a little momentum in the gap:

    If these numbers continue to hold up as the election approaches, this looks much more like an electorate ready to re-elect an incumbent and perhaps add seats in Congress for his party than it does to eject him. That’s not a direct measurement, of course, but it’s significant enough that it should have poll modelers rethinking the assumptions built into their product.

    Dan wants ankle bracelets, presumably to be monitored by private security

    Yes and when he said this, he waived it off with ”other countries are doing it”. Like that makes it all okay then.

    That’s scientific enough for the jug-eared imbecile.

    Dan also – I’m not making this up – wants the bracelets to provide real-time monitoring of health data.

    Bracelets for whom?

    The countries that are doing bracelets are shitholes, not western liberal democracies.

    Hence entirely appropriate, Australia is a communist shithole masquerading as a western liberal democracy.

    Police officer who received a bravery award after Manchester Arena attack took a two-hour lunch break to buy a kebab, missed suicide bomber – and admits she would ‘probably’ have asked what was in his rucksack

    PC Bullough, who received an award for her bravery after the attack, came back on patrol shortly after the suicide bomber walked along Victoria railway station platform towards the City Room foyer of the arena.

    Pc Bullough told the public inquiry into the terror attack which killed 22 people and injured hundreds of others on May 22, 2017 that her break should have been between 50 minutes and one hour.

    Why On Earth Would You Vote Democrat?

    The answer should be obvious: you shouldn’t. Not in a million years.

    I know people who are still trying to decide whether or not to vote for Democrats in this election. As shocking as that might seem, it’s true. And as with any important decision that must be made, an important question to answer before deciding to do it is “Why?”

    While I know some people simply vote for personalities, let’s assume for sake of argument that some undecided voters are actually thinking people who want to wrestle with what is at stake in this election for them, their families, and for the long-term future of America.

    In an honest search, information about key issues should be rather illuminating, if people have an open mind.

    Trustworthiness matters on all issues, especially with healthcare. Checking the websites and listening to what they are saying, Democratic candidates are misleading voters by claiming that Republicans will take away the health insurance of every American including coverage for people with preexisting conditions.

    That is a lie.

    In fact, House Republicans in 2017 passed two healthcare bills, both of which provided coverage for people with preexisting conditions. Not only did both provide coverage but the legislation would have lowered costs for everyone else in every age category. But guess what? Democrats in the House and Senate opposed these bills.

    So, the Republicans introduced the Pre-existing Conditions Protection Act of 2017 and the American Health Care Act, voted “yes,” and sent it to the Senate—where every single Democrat in the Senate voted “no” (including vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris).

    But why would the Democrats attempt such an obvious lie? It’s like a kid with powdered sugar all over his face swearing to his parents that he did not eat the donuts.

    There are only three reasons Democrats might think they could get away with this lie:

    They think Americans so uninformed that we will believe anything they say;
    They don’t believe we will take the time to verify what they are telling us;
    They just lie.
    Democrats lying about an issue that is so personal to millions of Americans is understandable considering they voted to block the possibility of adequate, affordable insurance—no matter the preexisting conditions—for everyone in the country. They know they can’t admit that, because if the truth were understood by the American people, who would vote for them? They have to lie.

    Today, Democrats are basing their opposition to Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court partially on the argument that she might vote to end the Affordable Care Act (ACA). But the truth is that they are the ones who want to eliminate the ACA and they mean to replace it with a government-run, single payer system.

    Look it up for yourself. Democrats have been talking about the problems with the ACA for years, using those problems as a setup to impose their idea of Medicaid for All which would take away private insurance for everyone.

    Democrats are afraid that Barrett might vote against current laws that allow unlimited abortion at any time during pregnancy—even to the point of killing a baby who survives a late-term abortion. But that is not mainstream American thinking, not even in left-wing places like New York or California.

    Anyone who is still thinking of voting for the Democrats should probably have some understanding of what it will mean financially for his or her family. An impact analysis of the Biden-Harris economic plan versus the Trump-Pence agenda recently completed for Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin should get people’s attention and is another thing easy to find on the Internet.

    It explains that if Biden and Harris are elected, their plan will be implemented and cost the average family of four in those states more than $40,000 per year. While the study focuses on those five states, rest assured, the economic harm would be felt by every family in every state.

    You should check it out for yourself at http://www.BattlegroundStates2020.org because what you don’t know will cost you a lot of money.

    I’ve read the Marine’s remarks.
    My take: he is a credible witness.

    He did, however, retail a lot of hearsay.

    It’s not often I agree with Chis Barrie but on 7.30 tonight, I think he nailed something real that was happening in Afghanistan. He said he personally knew of men who did TWELVE tours. That’s far more combat than any WWI or WWII serviceman endured. The men became “more brutal just to survive.” Under questioning in a court-room, the Marine’s assertion that a seventh prisoner was murdered will not stand up to cross-examination, of course. He heard the “pop” – he didn’t see anything.

    I doubt it. Maybe US, but I haven’t heard of an Aussie who did more than eight.

    Regarding the Marine; He heard the pop over a radio while inside a helicopter … however even if the story is true, what options did the Commandos have? And which of those options was least likely to result in coalition soldiers being killed in future combat?

    The ABC has a very unhealthy obsession with this stuff. You would hope that they had learnt something from the Pell witch hunt, but no.

    The Antifa Industry at Work

    Professional left-wing organizers, planning for post-election chaos, promise to “shut down” the capital and engage in “civil resistance.”

    emboldened by Democratic control of both houses of Congress, the newly elected Obama would use what he’d learned from Chicago activism to instigate and win battles on more pressing political issues.

    For those eight years, the organizing ecosystem that would eventually erupt into Antifa and Black Lives Matter street violence and direct-action grew in strength, sophistication, and funding. Obama’s own career in Chicago should’ve been a kind of clue: the former president served on the boards of Public Allies, the Woods Fund of Chicago, and the Joyce Foundation, which together distributed tens of millions of dollars to various local left-wing groups—some of which themselves were organizing for street-level direct action.

    Antifa, of course, is far more than an “idea”—even as ideas, themselves, can be serious threats with which it is necessary to contend. But it is also far more than just an organization. Even as it traces its origins to pre-war Germany, one might think of “Antifa” as a relatively new product line from a larger industry that has existed for decades. That industry is the giant ecosystem of left-wing direct-action and organizing, with its own history, pedagogy, institutions, as well as tens of thousands of career professionals operating in the open, and funded every bit as well as the staid network of establishment conservative think tanks and magazines that tend to cluster along the Acela corridor.

    Writing at the American Mind last month, Michael Anton, author of The Stakes: America at the Point of No Return, brought attention to a war game report issued by the Transition Integrity Project, an ad hoc group associated with the George Soros-funded Democracy Integrity Project. Anton’s widely read essay, “The Coming Coup?” was heavily discussed on social media and by conservative talk show hosts including Dan Bongino, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, and Glenn Beck.

    What conservatives found so alarming was that the Transition Integrity Project urged Trump’s opponents to wage a “street fight, not a legal one” in the near-certain event of a contested election. In other words, forces arrayed against the president’s reelection should abandon the American political system—and pin their hopes of election victory not on the Constitution-mandated quest for the most electoral votes, but upon the street mobilization and direct-action capabilities of Antifa and the Left’s other professionally-staffed organizing groups.

    As a heavily contested Election Day approaches, it is crucial for both conservative activists and officials in law enforcement to understand that left-wing organizing for direct-action and “nonviolent” civil disobedience is being planned by career organizing professionals working within well-funded, interlocking organizations.

    “Uprisings, Resistance, and Mass Direct Action”
    Americans watching videos of Black Bloc activists tearing apart Portland, Seattle, or other cities are seeing the results of thousands of training sessions, budgets in the tens of millions, and a carefully mapped radicalization process as extensive as those used by Islamists or any other ideological on-ramp toward extremism.

    For tactical reasons, much of the expected actions will take place in heavily Democratic cities—as well as in the nation’s capital. Breitbart’s Joel Pollack recently identified a document called “Stopping the Coup: The 2020 Guide,” distributed by one such group, Shutdown DC. As he notes, it is described as an organizing how-to guide by The Disruption Project, seeking to use, in its words, “uprisings, resistance and mass direct action” in order to prevent President Trump from “stealing” the election.

    Shut Down DC was founded in 2019 as a coalition of DC-based direct-action groups, initially launched around the climate change agenda, and focused primarily on agitating for the Green New Deal. The group was sponsored by All Out DC, a local Antifa group with a professed objective of, according to its Twitter profile, “Burn Down the American Plantation.”

    The group’s ambitions are greater than the November election, of course; its members are not simply Democratic partisans. The Disruption Project urges its supporters to “stand up and take action against the unjust systems of racial capitalism, the heteropatriarchy, white supremacy and settler colonialism.” Its more immediate goals include an effort to

    “dismantle the systems that uphold structural racism and win reparations for Black folks, win
    some sort of repatriation of land to indigenous people, create an open US border and an end to imperialism, and a just transition out of a destructive economy.”

    Americans watching videos of Black Bloc activists tearing apart Portland, Seattle, or other cities are seeing the results of thousands of training sessions, budgets in the tens of millions, and a carefully mapped radicalization process as extensive as those used by [email protected] or any other ideological on-ramp toward extremism.

    For tactical reasons, much of the expected actions will take place in heavily Democratic cities—as well as in the nation’s capital. Breitbart’s Joel Pollack recently identified a document called “Stopping the Coup: The 2020 Guide,” distributed by one such group, Shutdown DC. As he notes, it is described as an organizing how-to guide by The Disruption Project, seeking to use, in its words, “uprisings, resistance and mass direct action” in order to prevent President Trump from “stealing” the election.

    Shut Down DC was founded in 2019 as a coalition of DC-based direct-action groups, initially launched around the climate change agenda, and focused primarily on agitating for the Green New Deal. The group was sponsored by All Out DC, a local Antifa group with a professed objective of, according to its Twitter profile, “Burn Down the American Plantation.”

    The group’s ambitions are greater than the November election, of course; its members are not simply Democratic partisans. The Disruption Project urges its supporters to “stand up and take action against the unjust systems of racial capitalism, the heteropatriarchy, white supremacy and settler colonialism.” Its more immediate goals include an effort to

    “dismantle the systems that uphold structural racism and win reparations for Black folks, win
    some sort of repatriation of land to indigenous people, create an open US border and an end to imperialism, and a just transition out of a destructive economy.”

    @ Jupes-

    I am still strongly suspicious that this is all political distraction suirrels so wokenADF brass can continue trying to ‘converge’ SOCOMD.

    I am still at a loss to figure out how forcing SASR and CDO troops together on a common Selection and cadre course will improve efficiency. They work differently, they train differently and require very different character qualities from their aspirants.

    The whole reason promising Selection candidates who just missed the mark are no longer directed into 2CDO, is the fact that both groups have diverged so significantly. I cannot help but fear that the shiny but already Commando-centric SFTC at Singleton, will shortly be turning out troops that are superb by RAINF standards, but woefully short of both the SASR and CDOs’ old (i.e. current) standards. To the lethal detriment of every Australian under arms.

    Next thing you know, some pogue will be shoehorned into command of SOCOMD who has no understanding of the job or culture (cos of that Eckwulidee or Die-versidee business), and the damage will take an extremely long time to undo.

    Indeed. SASR and 1CDO (then 4RAR(Cdo), now 2 CDO) cheerfuly ran their own Selection and qualification Cadre courses for the longest time. The IRR (now SOER) tacked onto the Commandos to train their Engineers.

    SFTC and the whole SF bureaucracy is a post-2006 ‘innovation,’ and seems to very much be (at least from this outsider looking in), an internal political solution in perpetual search of a validating problem.

    Give the job back to the Regiments in question. They know what they need.

    If they find working together benefits them, let them. Give them the resources they need, and get the hell out of the way.

    I would hope that this realisation trickles through SOCOMD swiftly, as combat-experienced Cats, Commandos and Gingers percolate into HQ SOCOMD and displace the last of the peacetime fools in uniform driving all this.

    Rick, when I watched that this morning, I thought how can it be that the decision was right because it had been run past the health advice but the decision was simultaneously wrong because it was comprehensively pilloried?

    What this tells everyone is that if there is community anger and push back and the expectations of the community are not met, then, it seems health assessment decisions already made can be changed.

    The difference is whether the community – the people, or a large enough group – get angry.

    So there is no objective decision-making, just the whim of the government; “a suck it and see” approach, well, that is sh1t.

    The NYTimes sheds now light on Hiden’s China problems.

    Look at Trump!

    But Mr. Trump’s own business history is filled with overseas financial deals, and some have involved the Chinese state. He spent a decade unsuccessfully pursuing projects in China, operating an office there during his first run for president and forging a partnership with a major government-controlled company.

    And it turns out that China is one of only three foreign nations — the others are Britain and Ireland — where Mr. Trump maintains a bank account, according to an analysis of the president’s tax records, which were obtained by The New York Times. The foreign accounts do not show up on Mr. Trump’s public financial disclosures, where he must list personal assets, because they are held under corporate names. The identities of the financial institutions are not clear.

    The Chinese account is controlled by Trump International Hotels Management L.L.C., which the tax records show paid $188,561 in taxes in China while pursuing licensing deals there from 2013 to 2015.

    They’re somehow implying normal regular business dealings are the same as taking loot from the PRC.

    Whoops… it’s not in the Guardian piece. It’s in the OZ.

    Here:

    Anti-corruption authorities in Victoria will look into money wired from the Vatican to Aus­tralia and allegedly connected to Cardinal George Pell’s trial after receiving information about the matter from federal police.

    Separately, The Australian can reveal that Vatican prosecutors investigating unauthorised financial transfers have been given details of more than $2m wired to Australia between February 2017 and June 2018 — almost double the $1.1m reported by Italian newspapers and the Times of London.

    There were four transactions in that period, the first for more than €250,000 from the Vatican’s ­secretariat of state in February 2017, according to documents being considered by Vatican ­investigators.

    The second came from the secretariat in May 2017, while the third and fourth totalled more than €800,000 and were sent in December 2017 and June 2018.

    In a statement on Wednesday, the Australian Federal Police said it had “received information from Austrac on this matter” and was “undertaking a review of the ­relevant information”. “The AFP has concurrently referred aspects of this matter to the Victorian ­Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission,” the AFP statement reads.

    Austrac, Australia’s financial intelligence agency that investigated money laundering and organised crime, confirmed earlier this week that it had passed information to the AFP and to Victoria Police for further investigation.

    At the heart of the Vatican’s ­investigation is Cardinal Giovanni Angelo Becciu, who was dismissed from his high-ranking position running the Congregation for the Causes of Saints in September after being linked to the fraud probe.

    Cardinal Becciu, who has denied all wrongdoing, was the deputy secretary of state until 2018 and had a well-known rivalry with Cardinal Pell when the latter was appointed as the head of Vatican finances.

    Italian newspapers La Repubblica and Corriere della Sera have reported that Vatican investi­gators were told that money was sent to Australia to help the case against Cardinal Pell, a claim yet to be substantiated.

    In an earlier statement, Cardinal Becciu said: “I categorically deny interfering in any way in the trial of Cardinal Pell.”

    Cardinal Pell was charged in June 2017 with a series of sexual ­assault offences.

    He was acquitted of the charges by the High Court in April this year.

    The transfer details given to the investigators and obtained by The Australian include references to Cardinal Becciu.

    They also include references to Neustart Australia Pty Ltd, a ­company that is linked to an American technology firm.

    The Vatican investigation is also looking into the purchase of a $363m London property, while a 39-year-old woman working for Cardinal Becciu was arrested last week over allegations of unauthorised payments in Slovenia.

    Apart from Cardinal Becciu’s sacking and the arrest in Milan, five senior Vatican police, auditors and financiers have been fired or suspended and a money broker has been arrested and charged with “embezzlement, money laundering and extortion” in relation to the London property.

    Robert Richter QC, the barrister who led Cardinal Pell’s defence, has previously called for Australian authorities to investigate allegations that money transferred from the Vatican was being used to influence the case against his client.

    The Pope appointed Cardinal Pell to oversee Vatican finances in 2014. The former archbishop of Sydney launched an audit of those finances, led by an external accounting company but was overruled by Cardinal Becciu.

    Cardinal Pell, in 2014, wrote in Britain’s Catholic Herald Magazine that he had discovered “some hundreds of millions of euros were tucked away … and did not appear on the balance sheet”, suggesting some departments had long had “an almost free hand”.

    The issue OCO is that it could have been tampered

    I absolutely get that, Laz. And if it was tampered with, investigators would discover that pretty damn quickly because the times, dates, txns, e-mails, plans etc etc don’t match with the actual times, dates, txns, e-mails, plans etc etc they’ll be able to find in 3rd party records.

    However, if the stuff on record matches with what’s on the laptop, then the Bunter cross examination is going to be absolutely brutal.

    “Extreme times demand extreme suggestions,” says fmr. Twitter and Google executive Peter Greenberger on silencing Trump’s social media presence.

    I presume this Greenberger guy doesn’t own Twitter stock now? He wouldn’t be talking like that if he did. Firstly, Trump’s account is easily the most valuable property the company owns. And Twitter pole-axed by antitrust laws won’t be worth a pinch of shit, so I’m not sure why this guy is shooting up emergency flares to try and attract more attention from the DOJ.

    Philly is deep, deep blue. I think it’s half or 2/3rds black…? A total waste of time in terms of swinging the needle in a meaningful ssense, but I bet Barry is expecting a warm welcome there.

    So like Obama. He goes to the place where he looks best rather than where he could be of greatest use. And people say Trump is a narcissist.

    Something that should always be remembered about Barack Obama – the man had published TWO memoirs before his 40th birthday.

    Wtf?? If those trends don’t start changing, then it’s full on brace for impact time for the Dems cos the plane’s being ditched into the sea. Republicans in purple states are disproportionately reporting that they intend not to vote early and vote on election day because they’re worried the Dem run purple states will try to steal the vote. So that means those early leads plus a boat load of extra in-person voters backfilling the total….?

    I dunno OCO. If this is true, the hotline may have to go to Centerlink and add possibly a hundred more hotline end-of-life operators to man the phones ( or woman the phones, in correct pc speak) I’m worried, we may not handle the traffic and there also may not be enough caskets for the piling bodies. This is very concerning.

  177. dover_beach

    JC/OCO I posted those numbers at 10pm. Also, look at these:

    Total Trump votes cast in TX in 2016: 4,685,047
    Total 2020 votes cast in TX as of last night: 4,706,398

    We are two weeks out and Trump has already more votes than 2016. As I said earlier: national polling is broken but there is, as others are saying on the web, like RazorFist, Gray Connelly, and many others, a curious narrowing in the national polls in the last two weeks, which suggests that they are trying to suppress R voters from voting by hitting morale, and getting Ds to the polls in the last week as the race ‘tightens’ to avoid complacency. If this hunch is true it’s essentially psyops by polling firms.

    Nothing would surprise me with what’s going on there. Not a thing , especially since the Wussiagate coup attempt and the bullshit impeachment.

    The trouble for the Demons is that people are reacting to the disgusting behavior on the streets, the lies and corruption. No amount of fucking around with numbers could change that.

    I am beyond disgusted by the American Left.

  179. dover_beach

    Dem youth vote crashes

    I’ve heard this too, I think Turley raised it. As OCO said, Biden is a shit candidate for zoomers, but the other aspect is the COVID effect. Normally, you’d have uni towns full of students but who are now back home so those counties are no longer going to skew Dem as much as normal and the distribution of those students while at home will be diffuse so will be probably undetectable.

    Corina Abraham shattered over death of her 11-year-old niece in Western Australia

    PAIGE TAYLOR
    INDIGENOUS AFFAIRS CORRESPONDENT
    @paigeataylor

    Corina Abraham says she is nearing the end of a life spent trying to escape the pain of child sex abuse.

    It breaks the 43-year-old’s heart that the same pain this week overwhelmed her beloved 11-year-old niece, who, having been repeatedly roped and molested during her childhood, seemingly took her own life on Tuesday.

    The girl’s death, from injuries that West Australian police suspect were self-inflicted, has again forced community leaders, politicians and the bureaucracy to examine the scourge of Indigenous youth suicide.

    “Accountability in our community needs to happen, no matter how hard it is,” Ms Abraham told The Australian from her dialysis chair in the southern Perth suburb of Spearwood on Wednesday. “We have to do it to save our kids.”

    Ms Abraham says Australia must start with the terrible truth about intergenerational abuse, and the endless cycles of sexual crimes inside big families riven with trauma.

    She said she self-harmed and drank to forget the horror of being molested and roped by older Indigenous men — some of whom were known to her extended family — and her chronic alcohol use ultimately led to kidney failure.

    “My little niece, I can picture her so upset, and I know what would have been going through her mind because it went through my mind too,” she said.

    Members of the little girl’s family had been known to social workers for a long time. Some had received help because they were homeless while others had been taken into state care. The little girl, one of several children and a member of Ms Abraham’s extended family, had endured unfathomable pain in her life. She disclosed that she was roped in late 2019 and in April this year her father took his life aged in his 30s.

    On Wednesday, the little girl’s mother told The Australian her late daughter had been an optimistic kid who loved to draw and make Tik Tok dance videos.

    She said she was very proud of her daughter for finally speaking to her about being abused. “She was brave and now she’s gone, I am going to make sure her voice is heard,” the mother said.

    In a video record of interview with police, the little girl identified her abuser as a senior Indigenous man from the southwest of Western Australia, Peter Frederick Humes, who faces 13 child-sex abuse charges, including five counts of sexual penetration of a child under 13.

    Mr Humes is the second senior Indigenous man from the state’s southwest region to be charged with child-sex offences in recent months. Harry Nannup, 73, has pleaded not guilty to six unrelated child-sex offences.

    Indigenous author Hannah McGlade, an advocate for child abuse victims for more than 20 years, said authorities had failed to address the entrenched problem, despite the extent of the issue being laid bare in the Gordon inquiry into child sex abuse in 2002. “We need to invest in community-based responses to child sexual abuse and violence,” Dr McGlade said. “The Gordon inquiry said there should be a one-stop shop, holistic service for victims and they also called for the appointment of an Aboriginal children’s commissioner.

    “Aboriginal children are being abused and even dying as a result of abuse and violence but also government neglect. Where are the supports in our community for the victims? Where is the voice for Aboriginal children?

    “The UN has supported Aboriginal children’s commissioners at state and federal levels, but governments, state and federal, are failing to respond to what is a most serious human rights -violation.”

    After the little girl’s family expressed their distress that her alleged abuser had not been remanded in prison ahead of his trial, WA police on Wednesday conceded they should have opposed bail.

    For Ms Abraham, the tragedy of the young relative lost tells her little has changed since she was abused some 30 years ago. “Some of these perpetrators learned this criminal behaviour on the missions and it has become normalised in families,” she said. “I am ill, I am getting to the end of my life and I want to see change. We can’t keep going like this.”

    It’s been an awful 8 months but today I got a nice surprise. I’m invested in a dividend ETF and live off some of the dividend . They halved the div in July and several weeks ago checked the Blackrock website to see what was going on in October. I read a big fat zero beside the name and figured.. yep, it’s Covid, so there’s more pain and zero div.

    Today I received an email and saw it was a div notification. I had gone to the website too early and assumed the bucket was empty so I didn’t looksee again. Just to verify I checked my back account and there was the loot, sitting there like a happy Labrador pup.

  185. Oh come on

    The pollsters are lying or don’t know their samples. The polling game is an interesting outpost in the culture wars. The media can sneer at and openly despise their bitter clinger audiences, who just switch off in response. Pollsters regard these people with similar levels of contempt, but they also rely on their cooperation as an essential part of their service. And this is where the interesting bit comes in – conservatives widely report deliberately fucking with the pollsters. Not dropping off their call lists, not refusing to answer – but deliberately making the effort to provide garbage input so the poll data is off.

    Get woke…

  186. Oh come on

    It was obvious there was never any momentum behind Harris/Biden. This election was always going to be a battle between Trump supporters and haters. There is no such thing as a Biden enthusiast, let alone a Harris enthusiast.

    I do wonder if these recent Biden revelations are dampening the anti-Trump fervour, though.

    Arky, I posted a couple of nights ago about that. The Peterson family seem to have a highly unusual series of health calamities and triumphs. Makes me wonder if something else is going on there.

    The odds of a small group of people being bombarded with debilitating health problems and dire prognoses; relentless, relentless – only to recover against all odds and usually due to some bizarre remedy…

    Maybe they are just a bunch of super duper unlucky and then lucky people. An alternative explanation is that something not quite right is going on behind the scenes.

    Too often those telling others how to live to have their out of control daemons. JP is no different from so many others that have played guru and found wanting. I appreciated his emphasis on stoicism but thought is reliance on Jungian ideas to be ridiculous. Understanding human behavior is far more complex than the pictures he painted. He should have kept to the knitting doing his research and teaching students but the be a guru temptation overcame him.

    To be fair, I think Peterson handled his superstardom and the sudden adulation of millions quite well. His message at the start was coherent and timely but as his long public dialogue with himself continued, he seemed to become increasingly confused/confusing. I went completely off him when he lined up against Kavanaugh. I did buy 12 Rules but didn’t bother finishing it. About halfway in I felt that I was reading stuff I’d already heard from him in a variety of his lectures and talks. His ability to write in the same way he speaks was interesting and a little odd.

    There are always those longing for a voice in the wilderness. That doesn’t excuse the voice putting forward simple and misleading ideas about how to handle life’s challenges. He became the Tony Robbins of psychology. I hate Tony Robbins at a subatomic level.
