“The government you elect is the government you deserve.” ― Thomas Jefferson

Yes, my boy ‘Tommy J’ said this. But I prefer this version:

“People deserve the government they get, and they deserve to get it good and hard.” – H.L. Mencken

The fat lady isn’t singing just yet, but she sure as hell has warmed up and cleared her throat. If the Trump legal team can actually get a true recount in at least Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Nevada – well, God love ’em. But even Everest is taller than what it looks from the ground, and this vote challenge is no different. And for what it’s worth, I would never be happier to be proven wrong on this.

So for now, pat yourselves on the back, America! You’ve done a stellar job at demonstrating our educational deficiencies in this country, not to mention our rapid loss of reason and sound judgment.

That being said, since the American people – for the world to see – have demonstrated their sheer ignorance of economics, science, foreign relations, and every other topic that matters, here is what we can expect in the worst-case scenario of an election re-count that doesn’t put Trump over the top, and what will happen with the start of the Biden/Harris administration. So pour yourself a good Kentucky bourbon (sh*t, make it a double), get comfy with a box of tissue, and let me tell you what you can possibly be given to swallow over the next 4 years.  And as one of the many public services we provide, we’ll translate the Democrat doublespeak, and tell you what to expect.

  • Biden could forgive a chunk of student debt without any help from Congress. Student-loan debt reached a national high of $1.5 trillion in 2019. Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren unveiled a proposal for the next president to cancel up to $50,000 in student-loan debt.
    • Translation: All of your liberal neighbors kids who majored in Gender Studies, or 20th Century Marxist Poetry, or Egyptology, or Floral Management can get a free ride for making a very expensive, piss-poor life decision.
  • Biden could increase the federal minimum wage for contractors to $15 an hour. Biden can increase the hourly pay for federal contractors. The president-elect supports a $15 minimum wage nationwide, though he hasn’t unveiled a timeline to implement it. House Democrats passed a plan last year to gradually reach that level by 2025.
    • Translation: The gift shop clerks at the Capitol Building will make more than your studious, collegiate son or daughter at their engineering internship. Fabulous.
  • Biden could step up corporate taxes by adjusting regulations with the Treasury Department. Biden campaigned to partially roll back Trump’s 2017 tax law and increase the tax rate on corporations to 28%. But Republicans are not likely to support the move, and it may be difficult to achieve if Democrats don’t control the Senate. He could step up corporate taxation by adjusting several regulations with the Treasury Department. Trump’s tax law reduced the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%, the biggest change to the tax code in three decades, which is one of the reasons unemployment – pre-covid – was at all time lows across the board and especially with minorities.
    • Translation The ignorant socialist bedwetters and Bernie supporters will cheer with glee at this one. But since they lack even the most basic understanding of economics, the brutal reality of lost jobs, increased overseas investment, and the fact that the end user/customer pays those taxes by increased product costs will make them scream louder. Democrats/Progressives/Socialists are not smart people.
  • Repurpose unspent federal relief funds. Congress hasn’t spent all the relief funds from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act passed in March. Biden could repurpose some of the unspent money from the Paycheck Protection Program.
    • Translation: Use your imagination on this one. No progressive dream is too big or too lofty. Let your thoughts run wild.

But hey, don’t worry your pretty little head off worrying about such trivialities as the economy, or jobs, or other meaningless topics that will affect your future, or your children’s future, or your life as a whole. We’re gonna save the planet from greedy corporate polluters, cow farts, and those pesky gas-guzzling vehicles.

Biden’s legislative agenda on climate will largely depend on whether Democrats gain control of the US Senate, which will be decided in two run-off elections in Georgia taking place on January 5. YOU REALLY NEED TO FRET AND WORRY ABOUT THIS.

But regardless of which party controls the Senate, Biden has pledged to sign a series of executive orders, which do not require congressional approval. In other words, “Its good to be the king“.

Biden has laid out a really stupid and meritless $1.7 trillion investment climate plan with the goal of reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Actual copy of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) Green New Deal proposal

Stef Feldman, Biden’s campaign policy director, says that Biden’s climate plan is an “all-of-government agenda,” and will be worked on across departments and agencies.

Here’s a list of 10 executive actions Biden has said he will take on his first day as president to combat the environmental “crisis” and placate the “Green New Deal” wing of the Dem party:

  • Require limits on methane pollution for oil and gas operations.
    • Translation: Crazy Uncle Joe is gonna get rid of all of those energy jobs that employ hundreds of thousands. No worries, mate. There is a surplus of government cheese to be handed out in DC. Just ask Pelosi and Schumer!
  • Use the federal government procurement system to work towards 100% clean energy and zero-emissions vehicles.
    • Translation: Nothing screams “Go Green!” like lithium mining for batteries.
Let the visual swirl in your head for a bit.
  • Ensure US government buildings and facilities are more efficient and climate-ready.
    • Translation: Yeah, because we haven’t wasted enough taxpayer money yet.
  • Implement the already-existing Clean Air Act, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation by developing new fuel economy standards to ensure all new sales for light- and medium-duty vehicles will be electrified, and annual improvements for heavy duty vehicles.
    • Translation: Because who doesn’t want to spend $125K for an F-150?
  • Double down on liquid fuels like advanced biofuels and make agriculture a key part of the solution to the climate crisis.
    • Translation: Never mind that producing enough biodiesel or ethanol to replace one gallon of petroleum fuel, they argue, requires the energy equivalent to several gallons’ worth of petroleum fuel. We just need to start feeling green.
  • Reduce emissions and cut consumer costs through new standards for appliance and building efficiency.
    • Translation: Yes, sir! You’ll easily save $10 a year in in utilities, and pay hundreds more for that new washer, dryer, refrigerator, washing machine, etc.
  • Require federal permit decisions to consider effects of greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, and ensure every federal infrastructure investment reduces climate pollution.
  • Require public companies to disclose climate risks and greenhouse gas emissions in their operations and supply chains.
    • Translation: This is a true job creator, folks. Companies will now need to hire staff to compile meaningless metrics and data that no one will look at. Its all part of the Biden plan for economic growth!
  • Rejoin the Paris climate accord, a landmark international deal to combat the climate crisis that Trump pulled out of in 2017.
    • Translation: No matter how useless, unscientific, and financially crippling to the U.S., we need our friends to really, really like us for pretending to care. According to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which compiled the combined impacts of the various pledges under the Treaty, it found a best-case scenario of global temperature reduction of 0.2 degrees Celsius by 2100.
  • Permanently protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, establish national parks and monuments, ban new oil and gas permits on public lands and waters, modify royalties to account for climate costs and creating programs to enhance reforestation and develop renewable energy on federal lands and waters to double offshore wind by 2030.
    • Translation: Who needs all of that selfish energy independence anyways? Let’s help create more jobs in oil-rich terrorist nations like Iran and Russia. Think of others, you greedy bastards!

So there it is, fans. A virtual cornucopia of stupidity, waste, and increased cost – TO YOU!

But honestly, maybe America needs this. Not for any of the benefits they are trying to sell like snake oil, but rather as a bump-stop for the downward spiral of electorate sloth, complacency, and ignorance. Just sayin’ …

The unavoidable horror of reality

Okay, people. Reality check time. Call this a little tough love.

And after you digest what I am about to say, it’ll be time for a thorough gut check. A big one.

Unless hell freezes over, unless the stars and the planets perfectly align in the cosmos, unless that crazy coyote catches that poor little road runner, Donald Trump will no longer be president on Jan 20, 2021.


YES, I think the election was RIDDLED with voter fraud and corruption.

YES, I think that two of the most incapable and incompetent people in politics, Slow Joe & the Ho, will occupy the top two seats in government.

But that doesn’t mean squat. The universe doesn’t care. Sucks to be us.

For now.

Let’s do a little reminder here. After 4 (four; aka- cuatro, Четыре, 四, τέσσερα) years of going through and cleaning up the debris of an actual Democrat-sponsored unsuccessful coup via a made up Russian collusion story, with the origins leading right up to the highest levels of government, not one head has rolled. Not one top Democrat official is getting treated as a true prison bitch by his 400 lb lifer cellmate. And if we conservatives can’t even get that to work out in our favor, what on God’s green earth makes you think we are going to get an election turned around????

Here is the scathing, sharp, meat hook reality of the situation: we’re not.

So now, you must be asking “Raison, you’re one of the smartest beings on the planet. What can we do?” Solid question. Here is a short list of my top-shelf, four-star recommendations:

1) Feel the burn (and I ain’t talkin’ about Sanders!), and let the butt hurt flow through you. Get and STAY angry. Realize what the intellectual laziness and sloth of the average American voter has brought you. Unfortunately, far too many conservatives finally woke up in the 11th hour of the election, and took an interest. Some even took a stand. But a little too little; a little too late. I have said for years that I was sick and tired of conservatives seeing the world on fire around them, and simply shake their heads and say “Oh my!”, followed up by placement of their craniums firmly back into the sand. Because of this apathy, our schools have become leftist/Marxist indoctrination centers, and our media giants have become complicit foot soldiers of spreading that ideology by giving Americans a big, healthy dose of bullshit every-single-day.

2) Now that we have many asleep conservatives that have gotten off their useless, lazy asses, and have had some political shock therapy by watching an afflicted dementia patient ready to take the reigns of the country, we need to plan – and plan BIG! Immediately, you should contribute to the Republican senate races in Georgia – NOW! Both Georgia senate seats that will be up for grabs in special elections to be held Jan 5, 2021. Should both go blue, the senate is lost. Dems will have the triad of political power to do what they want, when they want. Let that marinate in your skulls for a bit.

3) One thing the media whores are not reporting: Dems did not do well in down ballot elections. At the local levels in many states, things have gone red, and in some cases, bright red. So lets think a little longer term to two years from now. The mid-terms never get the turnout the presidential elections do, and the Dems are worse at showing up for those than Republicans. Lock your sights on 2022. EVERY conservative candidate must get backed like Trump did. This will send shock waves, and pave the way for a conservative POTUS in 2024.

Play the long game, and pray.

Michigan AG ‘sits firm’ on OSHA regs

As reported in the NY Post (really – no BS!!), the Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel pleaded with residents of the state on Thursday to stop telling her staff to shove Sharpies up their butts.

AG Nessel made the plea in a tweet Thursday, showing how once again Democrats care, and have peoples backs – or at least, backsides … or butt holes.

“Dear members of the public: Please stop making harassing & threatening calls to my staff. They are kind, hardworking public servants just doing their job. Asking them to shove sharpies in uncomfortable places is never appropriate & is a sad commentary on the state of our nation,” Nessel wrote.

Republicans ought to know better. It’s obvious why the AG is involved. Insertion of any writing instrument into one’s anal cavity while in the workplace is an OSHA noncompliance issue regarding confined spaces.

Georgia on my mind

Not to add or pile on the angst and heartburn of the 2020 election, but I think some of you don’t quite have enough to worry about.  So let me help out.  That’s what I’m here for.

With a Biden/Harris presidency looking like a possibility, the only safeguards that will be in place are the courts; not just SCOTUS, but many Trump appointed federal judgeships. That’s good.  That’s a win, and its already in place.  The other safeguard is the Senate, where people are naively thinking we have the majority sewn up. 

Well, let me burst your confidence bubble. 

Georgia has BOTH senate elections as special elections Jan 5, 2021. The 2020 United States Senate special election in Georgia is because Senator Johnny Isakson’s resignation is effective December 31, 2019. Governor Brian Kemp appointed Kelly Loeffler to serve as Isakson’s replacement, effective January 6, 2020, until the special election.  Per Georgia law, a special general election will take place on the same day as the regularly scheduled U.S. Senate election for the seat held by David Perdue.  

Should Republicans win one or both of those elections, we’ll have a GOP Senate majority to counter the deadly effects of what’s looking more and more like a Joe & the Ho presidency. If the GOP fails in both races and ‘Dementia Joe’ wins, the Senate would have 50 Demonrats, 50 Republicans, and Vice President Kamala “Heels Up” Harris breaking any ties.

So while you polish off your emergency prepper supply of Costco bourbon because of a bad Tuesday night, just remember that a double-loss for the GOP Georgia Senate race would put that ‘ugly dog-faced pony soldier’ Biden into the Oval Office with majorities in both the House and Senate, allowing for all sorts of useless social programs, “common sense” gun laws leading up to confiscation, the undoing of middle east diplomacy, court packing, and Tony Montana living next to you asking “say hello to my little friend”.

Panic in Detroit

The Motor City – forged into an industrial mecca in the early 1900’s by titans of industry such as Henry Ford, the Dodge brothers, Sebastian Kresge, Charles Fisher, and countless other industrialists and job creators. Home to the forever cherished Motown Sound of the Temptations, Supremes, Four Tops and Marvin Gaye. Considered as the “arsenal of democracy” of the 20th century. This all but a memory now, in a city that has been decimated by Democrat policies since the fifties, when Detroits population made it the 4th largest city in America. Detroit reached its population peak in the 1950 census at over 1.8 million people, and decreased in population with each subsequent census; and as of the 2010 census, the city had just over 700,000 residents, adding up to a total loss of 61% of the population. No other city in America, barring natural disasters, has had that level of exodus from its proper border.

And now, during a promising rebirth and resurgence in its primary business core that has been stopped dead cold from the phony BLM movement and the Corona-19 pandemic, it has become a central figure in the scandal that has been the 2020 presidential election. Like other big cities in America such as Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta, and others that have had decades of Dem leadership bringing policies that have created entire city regions of blight, crime, and destruction, Detroit has positioned itself once again as a national embarrassment.

Down at the TCF Center (formerly COBO Hall), absentee ballots are being counted without proper oversight.

As reported in The Detroit News, the Oakland County-based nonprofit Election Integrity Fund and election challenger Sarah Stoddard are suing the city Election Commission, Clerk Janice Winfrey (who has 1 [one] job!) and others. According to the complaint filed in Wayne County Circuit Court, the absentee voter counting board at Detroit’s TCF Center is under “one-party control.” 

Poll inspectors count and process absentee ballots at the TCF Center in Detroit Wednesday.

The filing stated “Specifically, individual inspectors from a single major political party are ‘curing’ rejected absentee ballots — those absentee ballots that cannot be properly read by the electronic counting machine — including transposing the voter’s perceived choices onto a new ballot, without the required oversight and signatures of two election inspectors — one from each major political party … These rejected absentee ballots are reviewed by only one inspector, in most cases a Democratic inspector, who then unilaterally decides how the voter intended to vote and creates a ballot that can be read reflecting the inspector’s unilateral decision.”

Welcome to the new Banana Republic of Detroit – a shining template for the rest of America if the regime change coup of Biden/Harris is successful.

“Keep your powder dry”, and pray hard.

Raison D’etre – Man, Myth, & Legend

Billionaire, Superhero, Provocateur, Capitalist, Slave to Fashion, and just an all-around swell guy. Adored by many; loved by all. A beacon of truth and light in a dark and desperate world.

… are sick and fed up with the daily dose of manure handed out by the media and the sell-out politicians who have slithered their way into power.

Raison D’etre makes it his sole purpose to provide society with conservative enlightenment, facilitated through the interpersonal triad of educating the stupid, correcting those that are wrong, and sharing his presence with the world. His charm, wit, intelligence, and rugged good looks have provided the inspiration for the “Most interesting man in the world” beer commercials.

Why does he do this?

  • To counter the shameless and soulless left wing media whores who are puppets of the DNC; and
  • Because his political wisdom and keen political insights are just too good to not share – he is a benevolent and generous man.

When he isn’t shark hunting, climbing Everest, or freeing citizens from oppressive third-world socialist regimes, he enjoys exercising his 2nd amendment rights in the shooting sports, and burning fossil fuels in off-road adventures with his beautiful trophy wife.

Another relaxing outing with the family who are once again demonstrating superior trigger discipline and safety.
