Stitch-up

"Michael Brendan Dougherty: Trumpism After Trump" ('Hunter Wallace'): 

"It is true that the Democrats are two parties – the Democrat Independent Liberal Elites (DILEs) and the Democrat Leaning Working Class (DLWCs) – and that the overwhelmingly White, college educated, upper middle class professionals who are lifestyle progressives who embrace Modernism or the DILEs dominate the Democratic Party. The DLWCs are much more moderate on cultural issues. Donald Trump won 25% of the DLWC vote in the 2016 election by running as a populist and nationalist. Bernie 2016 ran as a DLWC candidate. Woke Bernie 2020 tried to appeal to the DILEs to fend off Elizabeth Warren."

and:
"The Core Conservatives who dominate the Republican Party and the Solid Liberals (DILEs) who dominate the Democratic Party are the problem for everyone else in American politics. The wealthy are polarized into two camps of cultural libertarians and fiscal libertarians. The middle of the horseshoe is a vast sea of poor, working class and lower middle class voters who are caught in between these two camps. Most people in this country are not extremists on cultural issues or economic issues but tend to be middle or the road and the key to getting out of this ditch is figuring out how to unite those voters against the two extremes.

The political solution is a compromise. Wealth redistribution in exchange for getting rid of the yoke of political correctness or wokeness or basically the Democratic Party of the New Deal era. Sure, there were “racists” in that party, but look at what was accomplished compared to our own times. The standard of living for the vast majority of the country rose for decades as opposed to stagnating or falling. The alternative is things keep going the way they are going now and income inequality gets worse and the political correctness gets worse and neither side gets what they want most until at some point the social fabric of this country completely unravels"

"Joe Biden is definitely not going to make good on his promise that "there will not be another foot of wall construction" during his presidency. Yet another bold claim and bold faced lie that reporters have failed to critically question him on"

Tweet (Mark Ames):
"This seemed like one of those "oh come on, they can't be that insane" jokes a few days ago, but it really looks like they're going to try to pin Jan 6 on evil Rooskies. Gotta love this "witness", like a Naked Gun parody of a cop stitch-up. https://politico.com/news/2021/01/17/pelosi-laptop-office-capitol-460147"
Tweet (Bryan MacDonald) (nor should they):
"Tried to explain here why the Kremlin isn't concerned about International reaction to the Navalny case. While it looks irrational from a Western POV (essentially elevating Navalny to hero status), it needs to be understood that Russian elites no longer care what the West thinks."
