Readers are asking for my thoughts about the midterm elections.

Looking at this CNN map -- it seems that except for thin areas of the northeast and west coasts and hispanic and black enclaves in the southwest and south, the country overwhelmingly voted Republican.

In my opinion, flyover America voted Republican because the "deplorables" want to defend Trump. They want to defend him for two reasons. One is that he spoke to their economic plight caused by the US corporations exporting their jobs, leaving the American workforce and middle class hard-strapped. The other is that the adoption of Identity Politics by the Democratic Party has made the Democrats the party that hates white people -- especially white heterosexual males who are defined as the victimizer of minorities, homosexuals, and women. It takes a really stupid white person to vote for Democrats who see white people as the problem.

Until the Clintons, the Democratic Party represented the working class. The Democrats were an offset to the Republicans who represented business. This kept things in balance. But the Democrats under the Clintons gave the OK for the Republicans to send the Democrats' voting constituency's jobs offshore. In exchange for selling out their constituency, the Clintons obtained Republican financing for the Democratic Party. Both parties are now run by the same Big Money.

The working class, abandoned by the Democrats, now votes Republican.

The Democratic Party's voting constituency no longer contains the dispossessed working class. The Democrats have turned to hate. They are now the party of hate. The Democrats teach hate to the "victim groups" of Identity Politics. This hate makes whites the Democratic Party's victims. Thus, the Democrats lose the white vote but gain the "victim" vote. Immigration ensures that eventually the "victim" vote will be greater than the white vote, in which case under the rule of the Democrats' Identity Politics, white people in America will become the victimized group. Indeed, if you pay attention to what many Democrats are saying, that is their intention.

According to reports I have read in the last few hours, 75% of Democrats want to impeach Trump. The reports do not say why. I think the only reason is hate. Trump is the epitome of the billionaire white male oppressor who grabs women by the p*ssy.

There you have it.

What I find extraordinary is that Trump, although on the Republican ticket, ran as a Democrat. He was for peace with Russia. He was for jobs for the working class. Peace and jobs are democratic slogans. But Democrats hated him, because he is the epitome of the oppressive white male, and this irrational hate led them into an alliance with the military/security complex, which strongly opposes peace with Russia, as such a peace threatens their budget and power. The Democrats, working hand-in-hand with the Deep State have blocked peace with Russia and have championed mass third world immigration into the US, which will further wreck the economic existence of the working class, in order to gain Democratic votes from third world immigrants to offset the lost American working class votes.

The Democrats apparently do not understand that the jobs for the illegal aliens depended on the middle class incomes of the American work force. With these incomes vanishing, illegal aliens no longer come for non-existent jobs; they come to collect welfare paid for by Americans who have lost their livelihoods.

I would say that, unless white Americans succumb to guilt and collapse, the Democratic Party is finished. The mid-term election was the Democratic Party's last hurrah.

This would not mean that the future is rosy. The Democrats have forced Trump into an aggressive stance toward the rest of the world. It is aggression that the US cannot back up. Can Trump with his bully personality back down?

How can Trump get rid of his Israeli encumbrance?

It doesn't seem possible. He would have to backtrack on his embassy and other decisions, and his and his Jewish son-in-law's close relations with Netanyahu would present not only diplomatic but also family problems if they were broken up by Trump asserting Washington's independence of Israeli control.
