🏆 Willing To Lose ➖ Open Thread




We all want to win. We all want that trophy, that blue ribbon and the accolades that go with winning.

When it comes to politics we want to win because that means the things we want for our family and our country are more apt to happen. We want to believe that the people we vote for will make those things happen if they win.

Right now it looks as if the Republican Party is winning. They have the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Republicans now dominate state government, with 32 legislatures and 33 governors.

They have just put another conservative on the Supreme Court to fill Justice Scalia’s seat.

Democrats appear to be in total disarray. Yet somehow they manage to get a lot of what they want from a GOP that seems afraid to fight them. Why is that?

It seems to me that the Dems have won, little by little, what they needed to win so that when they lose they still have a strong position. They were quite willing to lose so that in the long run they could win. If it sounds Machiavellian it’s because it was and is. It is also strategically brilliant.


Mach·i·a·vel·li·an –ˌmäkēəˈvelēən,ˌmakēəˈvelēən/
adjective: Machiavellian
  1. cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous, especially in politics or in advancing one’s career.
    synonyms: devious, cunning, crafty, artful, wily, sly, scheming, treacherous, two-faced, Janus-faced, tricky, double-dealing, unscrupulous, deceitful, dishonest;  perfidious;  foxy
    relating to Niccolò Machiavelli.
    noun: Machiavellian; plural noun: Machiavellians

Chuck Schumer can obstruct and delay and cause the GOP all the trouble he wants to cause and remain unscathed by the same problems that Mitch McConnell, or any other Republican could never dodge.

The Democrat Party is in full control of two very important things in our country. They control the media and they control education. They were willing, over the years to lose a few battles to gain control of our children.

There was no need to take over the media. The media was already in their camp. The media was and is made up of a large majority of Democrat activists more than willing to lie, distort, ignore and obstruct in the liberal cause. After all they believe the same thing as the Democrats. They have the same lack of integrity in supporting the issues dear to a liberal’s heart. We now know they know that we know they are in full control by the fact that they no longer hide their bias.

Media clowns like Joe and Mika suggest on national television that Trump isn’t quite “right”.

Yet they have a crazy woman like Maxine Waters on their program spouting nonsense and never even hint that she’s not quite “right.”  Shouldn’t people have at least a smidgen of integrity to gain you as a viewer?


Hey Joe and Mika, do you think that’s https://i1.wp.com/www.i2symbol.com/images/symbols/hands/white_up_pointing_index_u261D_icon_256x256.png  right?

Liberals believe in big government – Conservatives believe in limited government. We have a very big government. The left is winning that argument. With every citizen that accepts a government handout they gain more power.


The left spouts nonsense so silly that even a child should be able to debunk it and the media reports it as news. Left-wing Pols support and applaud it and a large majority hasn’t a clue what was said or meant and apparently doesn’t care. The left won voters support with handouts paid for by the taxpayers willing to work for a living.

Liberal education no longer teaches our children of the brilliance of the Founding Fathers because they were flawed by today’s standards. They owned slaves. There were no women included in the writing of the historic, ingenious documents that have kept us free and made us the greatest nation on earth. The victims and the naysayers are winning the war of words because they control the two most powerful ways of indoctrinating people – the schools and the media.


Thanks to media the left has all but won the argument about abortion. Thanks also to the government that made abortion mainstream when the U.S. Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade – 410 U.S. 113 (1973). There are by some estimations more than 54 million abortions since then.

To our ever-lasting shame we are now a nation with a majority of people who approve of what is nothing less than infanticide.  Some say they are against late term abortion. Yet if that meeting of sperm and egg will grow into a child when is it all right to kill it? When is it all right to crush an infants head and pull it from the mother’s womb? God help us, when is it all right to sell the body parts of those aborted children?

Even on this issue, which they believe they’ve won, liberals are inconsistent and hypocritical. The media sings their song for them under the cover of women’s rights. I didn’t know growing up, and into a woman, that one of my rights would be to murder my children in my body because it was my body.

Every time there is a shooting in this country, by some lunatic or by a terrorist, the liberal media and politicians swing into action. They blame guns and Republicans that own guns. And the NRA. What about the person that pulled the trigger or wielded the knife or drove a motor vehicle into a crowd?

As for right-wingers doing the killing – maybe they’re wrong about that too?

Who’s Doing The Killing In The U.S.? Scholar John Lott Pegs 51% of Murders To 2% Of Counties

A new study shows that over half of murders in America take place in only 2% of the counties in the country.

The study, conducted by John Lott’s Crime Research Prevention Center, shows that 2% of America’s counties had 51% of the country’s murders in 2014; 5% of America’s counties had 68% of the country’s murders. According to Fox News, “If the deadliest 5% of the counties were removed, the U.S. murder rate would be 2.56 per 100,000 people.”

The Democrats and their cohorts in the media would prefer you didn’t know about the facts above or the ones below.


The left is winning. The how and why might best be seen with the complete debacle the Republican Party has made of “repealing and replacing” Obamacare.

With them as our champions, our hope for the future, we are in serious trouble.

On that note, I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and don’t short circuit your brain trying to make sense of the way our country is headed. Because that just isn’t possible. You may find some solutions, you may find some hope here and there, but I don’t think you can make sense of much that’s happening. I tried. I failed.

    Great post, Marge. It amazes me how the Dems continue to act like they won, and the Reps seem to allow them to do it. I have never understood that. Crazy!

    I saw that article abt the murders yesterday and was blown away by it. Just astonishing, isn’t it?

    Again, great post. You nailed it!

  2. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    I saw the movie below this afternoon. What an incredibly powerful movie, and an even more incredible true story of this family in Warsaw who saved hundreds of Jews during WWII.

    Seeing movies like this about the Holocaust stymies me as to how the Nazis were able to do what they did for so long. It makes me wonder – again – how/why anti-Semitism is on the rise on our college campuses; and how mainstream Christian denominations can justify supporting the BDS movement, a blatantly anti-Israel/anti-Semitic “movement.”

    How quickly we forget, apparently. And tragically so.

    Here’s a trailer – I highly recommend this movie:

    A friend had this up at Facebook. It goes right along with your post. Apparently, the plight of poorly run Democrat cities is the fault of – you guessed it – Republicans: http://theblacksphere.net/2017/05/marc-lamont-hill-dont-blame-democrats-for-cities/

      According to the left everything negative in the world is caused by the Republicans. The media makes sure that message is given to the public. And the GOP, scared of media, cowers in a corner in a fetal position.

      The GOP may be winning elections but they are losing the war. Until they have the guts to dare to “lose” they will sell this country down the toilet so they can win elections and lose everything else.

      Trump’s foolishness and incompetence is making much of their argument for them.

    Michelle Malkin: A Thinking Mom’s Message for Jimmy Kimmel

    I feel your pain. But please use your brain.

    On Monday, late-night TV comedian Jimmy Kimmel delivered an emotional monologue about his newborn son. His baby was born with a congenital heart defect that required emergency open-heart surgery.

    Millions of American parents, myself included, have walked in Kimmel’s shoes. We’ve experienced the terrifying roller coaster of emotions — panic, helplessness, anger, anxiety, relief, grief and unconditional love — that comes with raising chronically ill kids.

    But Kimmel didn’t use his high-profile platform to educate the public about coping with rare diseases. Or to champion the nation’s best and brightest pediatric specialists and medical innovators. The Tinseltown celebrity turned his personal plight into a political weapon, which his liberal friends were all too happy to wield. Top Democrats tweeted their praise for Kimmel’s advocacy of expanded government health care regulations.


    I am sorry for any parent when they must confront medical emergencies with their children. I am NOT sorry for celebrities that use such things to promote their agenda. Using your child, tearing up on television, and pushing your belief system with emotion is wrong. It’s repulsive IMO. I hope Mr. Kimmel’s child is well and remains well. I also wish Mr. Kimmel would shut his big, ignorant mouth on topics of which he is ill or mis-informed.

    Lecturing from atop a pile of money that doesn’t allow that to be one of the problems you face when confronting a child’s illness disgusts me.

    I didn’t like Jimmy Kimmel before – I like him less now. That’s doesn’t’ really matter since there was never a snowball’s chance in hell I could stay awake long enough to watch his bullcrap anyway.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      I agree, Marge. A cousin had this video up so I watched it. The message with it was to make sure people watched to the end. I did until he started lauding Obamacare. He is the same one who lit into a Republican candidate abt how great Obamacare is and he didn’t know WHERE the Rep was getting the idea that it wasn’t going so well (it might have been Rubio). The Rep replied from all of the many studies abt it that show it is costing a fortune, that people are not able to afford even the cheapest one, so they are going without, the very problem Obamcare was supposed to fix.

      But don’t dare inject facts into feelings, oh no. And you are so right – to use your child this way is appalling.

      Oh, and I feel the same way abt Kimmel exactly – didn’t like him much before, even less now…

    ECON 101 Comes to Connecticut: Taxing the Rich Doesn’t Work

    Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy did the unthinkable for a Democrat: He admitted taxing the rich does not work. The state has witnessed “two high-end tax hikes in the past six years.” So the wealthy in Connecticut have done what any sane person would choose to do: LEAVE.

    Now the state faces a $2.2 billion deficit as income state revenue continues to collapse.


    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Gee, you don’t say! Never mind that the rich already pay the lion’s share of taxes, but this kind of thing just defies logic. And economic theory.

      As for that deficit, wonder how they are going to fix THAT, huh? More Dem policies??

  8. kenoshamarge Says:

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      This just disgusts me. Absolutely disgusts me.

      And where the hell is the MEDIA on this?!

    Adorable: Children (and grown-up kids) celebrate May Day by hanging, decapitating Trump piñatas

    Something about seeing crowds cheer as a child beheads an effigy of the president really makes you think about immigrant and worker rights.


    Actually it makes me think of ISIS indoctrinating their children into violence.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:


      This country, no, the LEFT in this country, have lost their minds and any semblance of decency, fair play, decorum, and maturity. Good LORD.

    5 Things You Need To Know About The Hospital Where Jimmy Kimmel Took His Son, And Why It’s Not A Case For Obamacare

    Praying for Jimmy Kimmel’s son. And a reminder: no one in the United States is refused treatment for lack of money or medical insurance. ~ Michael J. Knowles


    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      I was thinking that same thing – NO ONE gets turned away from medical care in this country, no one!

      That the hospital where this surgery was performed was a charity hospital, a fact Kimmel did NOT mention, says a whole lot abt what kind of person he is, especially using his time as a commerical for Obamacare.

      Holy. Crap.

        Dixon Diaz has done a whole series of these “book covers” called the Progressive Children’s Indoctrination Series and I find them chillingly true.

    The Founders’ Political Theory

    Natural rights are the inalienable liberties all human beings possess, not through government largess, but by nature. Because “all men are created equal” in the sense “that there are no natural masters or natural slaves,” everyone has the natural liberty to order his life “without interference from other people.”

    Among these rights are the right to life, possessing and acquiring property, religious liberty, and to seek happiness—what West calls “the goal of human life.”
