ROMNEY WORDSWORTH – On Tuesday, November 3, 2015, significant elections were held across the country. Results were a complete rout for the forces of left wing Liberalism.
In Kentucky, Democrats were stunned by TEA party conservative Matt Bevin’s victory in the race for governor. Elisabeth Pearson, executive director of the Democratic Governors Association, blamed “Trump-mania” for the TEA Party candidate’s upset 53%-44% win over Democrat Jack Conway. “Unfortunately, he ran into the unexpected headwinds of Trump-mania, losing to an outsider candidate in the year of the outsider” opined Pearson.
Well, if “Trump-mania” is such a potent force that it can effect a tangential governor’s race in Kentucky for a candidate that Donald Trump has never explicitly campaigned for, then what does this mean for the Clinton campaign in next year’s presidential election if Trump is the nominee? Oh, and by the way, wasn’t it the Left Stream Media that told us that the TEA party was dead?
Polling had the Democrat Conway up by 5 points on the eve of the election. Either there are serious flaws in polling techniques, or this was the year that the major polling organizations decided to throw away their credibility in a last ditch attempt to influence the vote. In a curious coincidence, national polling is putting every Republican front running candidate ahead of Hillary Clinton in head to head match ups, except for Donald Trump. Hmmmm, could this be another deception intended to influence the Republican primary voters to back another candidate besides The Donald?
There was another significant election result out of Kentucky. Remember Kim Davis? She is the Rowan County Clerk in Kentucky who went to jail rather than obey a court order compelling her to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals. Notice I refer to her as County Clerk in the present tense. She handily won re-election!! This is precisely what the homosexual mafia tried to prevent by getting her jailed. Their worst nightmare is a rising tide of elected officials who are supported by the voters in resisting their radical social agenda that they are ramming down our throats through activist judges.
In Virginia, voters rejected a ballot initiative for more gun control, bankrolled in the tens of millions by Michael Bloomberg and George Soros. After seven years of Barack Obama, banning the Confederate Battle Flag, and getting Clintonista Terry MacAuliffe elected as governor of Virginia, Democrats were starting to think they owned the state, and could start remaking it into another North East liberal run state, like New York or Rhode Island. Virginia voters said: Hell No!
The significance of this defeat cannot be overstated. Remember that Hillary Clinton is running on a campaign promise of Australia style gun confiscation. I don’t understand how anyone could think that running against the Second Amendment could be a winner in America. I guess that in the Salons of Chappaqua, nobody brings up the fact that gun owners in Connecticut and New York have largely refused to comply with gun registration edicts in those supposedly hard core left liberal states. If they can’t sell gun registration in New England, the Clinton campaign is absolutely doomed trying to sell gun confiscation across America.
Unlike Hillary Clinton, the numbers on gun sales don’t lie. Gun sales nationally have set a record for six months in a row this year. This is no doubt due to the Greatest Gun Salesman in the World: Barack Obama. The FBI’s National Instant Background Check System processed 1,976,759 firearms related checks in October. That is a 373,290 increase in checks over last year and a new record for the month. This is an automatic background check required by law every time a gun dealer sells a gun, and it is primarily for new gun sales. It is the most reliable data point on gun sales short of having the sales receipts of every gun dealer in the country. So far in 2015 the FBI has performed 17,584,346 firearms related checks. Currently, 2015 is on pace to beat 2013’s record 21,009,273 checks.
So, just to recap, in an election year where the Democrats are running on gun confiscation, Americans are buying nearly 2 million guns per month!
In Houston, Texas, the electorate voted for sanity and rejected enabling mental illness. This was the rejection of a radical LGBT law to open up women’s bathrooms to men who say they “identify as women”, and vice-versa. Houston’s radical lesbian Mayor had unlawfully tried to keep this voter initiative off the ballot, even to the point of issuing subpoenas against local Pastors demanding to know the content of their sermons.
As Camille Paglia wrote this week, sexual confusion and deviancy is one of the last symptoms exhibited by a civilization before its demise. Thank you, Houston voters, for putting off our extinction for just a bit longer. I know you voted the way you did because you wanted to protect your daughters from sexual perverts, but Western Civilization appreciates your effort all the same.
In the final item of our election round up, the voters in San Francisco fired their Sheriff who had released the illegal alien who killed Kate Steinle. When you’ve lost the voters of San Francisco in the campaign for unrestricted immigration, you have truly lost the country and lost the campaign altogether.
Over at Trump Tower in New York City, The Donald is adding another notch to his belt. The Left is playing into his hands perfectly, using foul mouthed children to call him racist, while Barack Obama signs legislation to let 3.5 million Mexican college graduates into America—because 50% of American college grads not being able to find work is apparently not high enough. Europe’s leaders, meanwhile, continue to destroy their countries by welcoming violent Muslim Jihadis with open arms, as a salutary lesson to America’s voters of what will happen to us if we let the Liberals do the same thing here.
