Surprised? US has been pushed pretty far in one direction for quite awhile. The pendulum generally swings back just as far...

The reverse swing of the pendulum against the left is taking place in more places than just the USA.

Last night I got a shocker when I turned on Euronews and saw Angela Merkel and Austria's new right-wing PM coming together to slow down and stop Muslim immigration.

The fortunes of the left are definitely on the wane.

WTF does immigration have to do with 'socialism' or 'left and right'? It's merely the latest bogeyman chosen by the alt-right for their platform banner.

When I was in my teens, Tommy Douglas ran in our riding. Both my parents, who were staunch lifetime Conservatives voted for him. They felt having his voice in Parliament was far more important than 'their side' having one more seat.

Whataboutism
(also known as whataboutery) is a variant of the tu quoque logical fallacy that attempts to discredit an opponent's position by charging them with hypocrisy without directly refuting or disproving their argument

Stocks Jump Higher as Trump Escalates Trade War

The latest escalation in the trade war did not have the dire consequences many predicted for the stock market.

Stocks rose Tuesday after the Trump administration announced new tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods and China promised to retaliate with tariffs on an additional $60 billion of U.S. goods.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 184 points, or 0.74 percent. The S&P 500 rose by half a percentage point. The Nasdaq Composite advanced eight-tenths of a percentage point.

The rise in U.S. stocks was all the more notable because the new tariffs are scheduled to go into effect September 24, sooner than many expected. And while the tariffs level will initially be 10 percent, as had been rumored for several days, that will rise to 25 percent on January 1.

Everything.

The movement against the left is a global movement. And when the left in the USA can't look to Europe for an example of how leftism can be so successful then it erodes their support in the USA.

Also, the fact that the political orientation of the Western world is moving to the right helps counter the Alinskyist propaganda that Trump and his supporters are an isolated phenomenon when they are not.

See, Trump's wall on the Mexican border doesn't sound so 'radical' when you find out that Hungary has one, Bulgaria wants one, Spain is building walls in their African enclaves, and etc.

And his immigration policies don't sound isolated and extreme when you find out that Sweden is deporting Muslims and so are Italy, Germany, France, UK, Norway, Denmark, Spain, and etc.

The left is on the ropes. You folks had a good run since WW2 and now it's coming to an end.

But you have to watch the news in the rest of the world to see this. US news is almost a news blackout when it comes to world affairs and I mean all of the major US news sources.

Trump’s Dick Reportedly Looks Like Toad From Mario Kart

Lisa Ryan@lisarya
Updated 6:02 P.M.

Well, we can’t say we weren’t warned. In April, Stormy Daniels’s attorney Michael Avenatti revealed that the adult-film star could “describe the president’s genitalia in great detail.” Now, in her new book Full Disclosure, Daniels apparently does vividly explain President Donald Trump’s penis after all, much to the world’s chagrin.

The Guardian obtained a copy of the book, and has shared all the phallic information about the president that we’ve never wanted to know and now cannot unread. First, the book goes into detail about Daniels’s disbelief at seeing Trump winning the Republican primary (“He doesn’t even want to be president,” she recalls thinking). She also writes of her fear about having such a sensitive story about the president, and her decision to sign a $130,000 hush agreement to not discuss their alleged affair.

But then, the book goes south, erm, quite literally, when Daniels describes a night she spent with Trump. Per the Guardian:

She describes Trump’s penis as “smaller than average” but “not freakishly small.”

“He knows he has an unusual penis,” Daniels writes. “It has a huge mushroom head. Like a toadstool …

“I lay there, annoyed that I was getting fucked by a guy with Yeti pubes and a dick like the mushroom character in Mario Kart …

“It may have been the least impressive sex I’d ever had, but clearly, he didn’t share that opinion.”
