D.L. Gardner: Things to Come

 “That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done. So, there is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9

I was flipping through some news channels last week when I saw Jen Psaki (former Biden spokesperson) and Nancy Pelosi (former Speaker of the House) discussing what kind of blackmail Vladimir Putin had on Donald Trump. What? Is it 2016 again?

As I continued scanning channels I caught a quick blip on CNN’s Smerconish Saturday morning with host Michael Smerconish interviewing Bob Costas. I didn’t hear what Smerconish asked, but Costas was on a tare berating Donald Trump saying, “He is by far the most disgraceful figure in modern presidential history.” Costas continued, “He’s only become more disgraceful since 2016 and since 2020. He is a bubbling cauldron of loathsome traits, and it’s only those who are actually suffering from ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome,’ which is the way they and Fox News and all the rest of MAGA media try to brush aside all the legitimate criticisms of Trump.”

But Costas was just getting started. He continued, “You have to be in the throes of some sort of toxic delusion and in a toxic cult, to believe that Donald Trump has ever been, in any sense, emotionally, psychologically, intellectually or ethically, fit to be president of the United States.”

There’s nothing new under the sun! If Donald Trump wins the presidency we’re doomed to four more years of “Ground Hog Day” reporters and celebrities repeating the same old adjectives and adverbs over and over and over again. At least with President Biden in the White House we’ve been given some comic relief via slap-stick antics on stairs and stages. Sure, America and the world are much worse off under President Biden. The difference is Biden’s supporters don’t really know or care about his policies.

How many column inches or broadcast minutes have legacy media given to migrants surging across America the past 3+ years? Nobody on the LEFT cares about millions of illegal immigrants swarming around big city neighborhoods siphoning government resources from taxpayers and citizens in need. It’s not real money. It’s government money! Besides, the border has been closed until just recently.

And, what if we are buying oil from our adversaries? Sure, America is sitting on enough natural gas and petroleum to keep the power on and prices low for a hundred years or so. But, green industries with federal connections need the money more than ordinary work-a-day folks. Follow the science! Any day, week, month, year, or decade now we’re going to see all of nature collapse under the weight of climate change! You just keep on waiting and you’ll see. The government, green barons, and sensational celebrities in politics would never mislead us, would they?

Fortunately, WHO, CDC, FDA and Big Pharma have been preparing for another round of pandemics this summer or next fall. Political operatives plan to collect 90-percent of ballots in swing states to keep voters safe from any contagion. Medical emergencies will automatically cancel constitutional rights and freedoms just like last time to remind us who’s really in charge.

Author’s note: Some of these predictions may be a bit exaggerated. Past columns are not indicative of things to come.

Mental health needs to be a priority. This is unsurprising, but still quite sad. This is a man who is a college teacher. God help our youth.

Sounds like Daniel is contemplating starting the next big pandemic and blaming it on the liberals. Don’t have sex with animals to own the libs Daniel. It’s not going to work out like it does in your delusional dreams.

Are Daniel’s rants really worth printing? Has anyone learned anything from reading his recent crap? I know I feel dumber after reading this. Kingfish, if you pay to post this, ask for a refund.

What was Costas wrong about ?

DL’s doctors may find it worthwhile to read this, but I doubt anyone else will.

I have been a conservative Republican over 50 years. I agree with 90% of Trump's policies. However, anyone who has functioning eyes and ears, along with an IQ over 70 must come to the sad truth that Mr. Trump has a serious narcissistic personality disorder, and may even qualify as a psychopath. It is a probability that Trump is going to be a convicted felon by the time of the Republican convention. We certainly don't want Biden re-elected. On the other hand, the price is too high to have The Donald back in the White House.

The act of consuming mind-altering substances is not simply a means of escape but a gateway to expanded consciousness. In the depths of altered states, the barriers between self and other dissolve, allowing me to perceive the world through new eyes. Reality becomes fluid, mutable, and open to interpretation, and in this heightened state of awareness, the words of D.L. Gardner take on a profound significance. Gardner's writings, with their unabashedly right-wing conservative perspective, serve as a touchstone for my explorations into the furthest reaches of political ideology. His words resonate with a clarity and conviction that cuts through the fog of uncertainty, offering me a guiding light in the tumultuous sea of contemporary discourse. In his columns, I find validation for my own beliefs, as well as a challenge to question and interrogate the foundations of my worldview.
But my journey into the depths of consciousness does not end with Gardner's writings alone. No, it extends far beyond, into the realm of conspiracy theory and fringe politics, where figures like Alex Jones and Steve Bannon reign supreme. Their broadcasts, and Gerard and Supertalk, with their unapologetic embrace of controversy and their willingness to confront the status quo, serve as a counterpoint to the mainstream narrative, challenging me to question everything I thought I knew about the world around me.

Patriot in Madison, your first sentence says it all. That’s some good stuff you have.

@7:27, say what?

The first seven post on the comment board coming from the same set of Cheetos stained fingers.

As for putting Trump back in the White House, what will this country look like with four more years of Biden? Let me add, I have never voted for Trump, but can you honestly say the country, and the world, are better off, now? The southern boarder being wide open will be the death of this country.

The publication of the weekly D.L. here does provide a service.

D.L. Gardner's missives to the unhinged serve to keep the unhinged occupied in their own private litterbox.

It's not like everyone else doesn't know what will be in the comments on the weekly D.L.

Sometimes there's a surprise, such as the comment @7:27 which you could read several times and still not be able to decide if it's the real thing or if it's Kine Bud snark without the "/s" closer.

D.L. could be in that same space if he ups his game a little.

The desperation of the military industrial complex is reaching a dangerous level. If Trump is elected, the newest forever war in Ukraine will be endangered. It's the ideal situation with the kickback systems already in place. They can't have Trump disrupt the system. Saltwaterdaffy must be heavily invested in the military industrial stocks.

The last time a similar situation occurred where the military industrial complex, and the security state was threatened, a sitting president lost his life in Dallas, Texas. A few years later, the same president had his brother, who was campaigning for president, lose his life. It's not safe to threaten these two rogue state actors.

Could we see a similar occurrence this presidential election, if they fail to get Trump through lawfare? Will we be put under martial law, because of all those young military age men, that have crossed our southern border, began to bring war to our streets? There are interesting times a head, but not in a good way.

Trump will carry Mississippi and many other states but he can’t win in the states that count, there are just too many Never Trumpers . He probably knows. He has been slurring his speech, confusing Biden for Obama and Haley for Hillary. He’s going to stay out of jail even if he has to fake dementia. That’s his number one objective at this point.

9:45 is right. I get the distinct impression that the same two or three people right all the diatribes against Gardner.

3:12 If you are concerned about DL Gardner in the classroom then you are totally unaware how screwed up our universities are today. The majority of Harvard faculty think the anti-Semite Claudine Gay should still be president at Harvard.

Exactly! We know to expect 12 just like yours.

Daniel is just caught in the circular logic that comes with being a Donald Trump fan while also pretending to be a Christian conservative. It makes people like him look dumb and even psychotic when trying to defend all the opposing ideas.

March 4, 2024 at 9:43 AM, you better get on the Trump train, because that train has been kicking some serious ass in the courts.

@11:53 - he’s certainly getting some eye watering judgements against him. Personally I prefer presidents who have some sensibilities and honor. Enjoy your Trump train, just hope you aren’t on the receiving end of that train.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
