Finally, Who is the anomaly?

I have been asking the Hannity lib denizens, “Who is the anomaly, Trump or Obama?”

Finally, some guy that I don’t remember having heard of previously put the pieces together. He does not get to the succinct summary, but he includes the background and key analysis:

“Progressive astrologists predicted a series of Obamas for the next half-century. But in truth, the country was never really progressive. Until Obama, no Democrat without a Southern accent had won the popular vote since John Kennedy in 1960.”

The article is a relatively long read, and I don’t particularly like the NeverTrump tone, but the point is made…


Obama wasn’t even that progressive in term of policy outside of Obamacare.

Try actually reading the article.

The only way to prove this would be to redo 2016 without Hillary and see where the trump Obama voters fall…otherwise nah…ebbs and flows…did obama hurt the dems with his laziness? Yes he did…did the left get complacent? Yes…

The left is now where the right is currently…that’s all…

Pretty good article. It always cracks me up that we now have so many on the left claiming Obama was really a centrist.

Of course, the’ve gone so far left since his leaving office he would have no place in the party today unless he was leading them in that direction.

Of course, they are making the same mistake again they’ve made over and over in the face of four successive congressional defeats, they are going full bore hard left thinking it’s going to be a winning strategy in 2018 and 2020.

All they accomplish is to alienate even more Americans in doing so.

I agree, the article is just pretty good.

I have vivid memories of 1968 in Chicago. Activists and “Burn baby Burn!”

That does not play well in Peoria.

That’s a good article. Brings back to focus the fall of the high and mighty Democrat. Once the pieces are played out it’s pretty clear Obama was the anomaly.

Yes, and since you are the first to see it, I will complete the thought:

…and Trump is the CORRECTION.


Never had so much been promised and so little delivered.

Biggest understatement EVER.


I’d argue that the next president will be the correction, hopefully at least.

Political tides are a pendulum, Trump was the extreme swing right after Obama swung us left.

The balance will be restored when we have someone in the middle who maybe shares Trump’s policy vision but whom is far less personally polarizing.

The left currently is hell bent on jumping off of a cliff and hopefully the rest of the country doesn’t have to follow.

My point on “correction” from a brief error, is that there is often some overage to un-do the mistake and correct course.

As you point out in your last sentence, there is no “balance”, there are only the crazies and the believers in the American Dream.

I find it difficult to finish poorly written articles, but I did it, and so I am going to reward myself with some ice cream.


Something went wrong with the democrats. We were told that Obama was fundamentally changing America. The old guard is being dismantled.

That’s ok though, they have a long term plan to reverse their fortunes.

from Yale study finds U.S. illegal immigrant population 'substantially larger' than previous estimates - Washington Times

Professors at Yale University have roiled the immigration debate with a new study calculating there are between 16 million and 30 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. — as much as three times more than most demographers figure.

The professors’ model looked at estimates of how many people came illegally, and how many people likely left, and concluded there are a lot more people who arrived than the 11 million suggested by traditional estimates. The model says the most likely figure is double that, at about 22 million.

If true, the numbers would mean U.S. officials have done a poorer job of catching illegal immigrants than imagined, and that one out of every nine people living in the U.S. is here illegally.

If you can’t win the votes of Americans, replace them with people you can get to vote for you.


Sometimes, you guys get hooked on a phrase and let it dominate your thinking to the exclusion of all else.


I liked the reference to Tickle-Me-Elmo (Kick Me McCain) and maenadism. Also, I brought an example of a “Progressive astrologist” reading from the middle of 2016.

It is an excerpt from a progressive astrologist’s chart of 7AM Election Day, 2016… the time the polls open.

I make the 1st house for the Democrats, Scorpio, and Mars. The 7th. house is for the Republicans, Taurus, and Venus.

Both Venus and Mars are Void of Course, therefore the candidates are without any power on the day of the election and can not affect anything. It’s all up to the voters now.

Mars is exalted by terms. Venus is exalted by sign through a mutual reception with
The Sun rules the 10th. of the presidency and applies to the ascendant from the 12th.
Mercury, exalted by terms is in the 1st. and is co-ruler of the 10th. of the presidency.
The Moon separates from Mercury and applies to Venus, but there is no shared dignity between the planets and therefore no translation of light. It is significant that there is no shared dignity between the office’s significator and Trump’s.
However, a few hours later, the Moon does give translation of light when the Moon separates from Venus and applies to Mars. This greatly favors Hillary.
Saturn in the 1st concerns me as it restricts the 1st. house. Saturn has no dignity but it is still active.
I think Lillith on the cusp of the cusp of the 1st. is very symbolic in that it is female.
Despite Saturn in the 1st. The translation of light from Trump’s significator to Hillarys favors her.
Hillary Clinton should win.

maenadism. What a wonderful new word I learned here. Thank you. Thank you.


His minions that wrote the fine print of regulations and those who armed and fired the weapons in the weaponized federal agencies were as radical as this country has ever seen.

What a great article. Thanks for posting it.
