Trump On Shutdown: “We Have to Open…”

Sunday, April 5th, 2020

We have to get back to work!

The whole thing is a put-on. I don’t mean there isn’t a virus, but the whole over-hyped panic is just that. On Thursday, this past week, I saw that there were real signs that the fog was lifting. People were beginning to question the whole thing. It’s not that anybody thinks Coronavirus 2019 isn’t real, but that the statistics were being questioned, and the models were being questioned, and finally, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx were being questioned.  More, the reality of the unemployment numbers was coming to light, as an additional 6.6 million Americans added to the unemployment rolls that had already surged by 3.3 million the week before. That’s basically 10 million Americans, whose jobs are gone. More, businesses are now going belly-up, unable to sustain themselves in a shutdown or even skeleton-crew condition.  Real people, with real businesses are losing their businesses, not because they did anything wrong, but because of some order by a government official. Those officials will all claim sovereign immunity to any lawsuits, but no matter what anybody claims, it is a real “taking” as the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Fifth Amendment defines it. They’re being wrecked, and their employees will have no jobs to which they can return. This must end. On Thursday, the American people finally realized it, and began to say so. Now, finally, two days later, it seems our President, already inclined to think along these lines, seemed to have gotten the message. In a lengthy briefing on Saturday, he said “We have to open…” He said it more than once.

After the debacle of the Fauci/Birx reliance on the statistical models, some of which were provided purportedly by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, people were beginning to question not only the obvious distance between projected death rates and reality, but also some of the underlying stories used to sell the panic. One YouTuber, channel name: AmazingPolly, who is an excellent researcher found some interesting problems with the video package prepared by the NYTimes about the catastrophe happening at the Elmhurst, Queens NY hospital. What’s interesting is that the video is now all in question. CBS famously aired footage that looked like a serious situation, allegedly in NYC, but actually from Italy.  Other footage and stills showed lines of coffins that were actually from a movie. The media is a pure propaganda arm of the Democrat Party. At this point, it truly is the Democrat-Media Complex. The idea is to sell panic. The idea is to push the country as far down into the ditch as is humanly possible, because there’s really no other way for them to defeat President Trump. They’re willing to wreck America to get rid of him, and to cause the death of additional Americans if necessary. There’s really no bottom to their black hole of hatred for this country. They see Trump and his supporters as the last obstacle to vanquishing America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, forever. This is not hyperbole. They hate us that much.

I know there is that segment of the readership who will assert this is some sort of conspiracy theory, but there’s no “theory” to it. The Democrat-Media Complex has conspired to create an apocalyptic narrative with COVID19.  The Washington Post already called Tom Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” for suggesting that the #WuFlu might have come from a Chinese Bio-Lab in Wuhan.  Now, they’re being forced to report that it may have indeed leaked from a Chinese laboratory, just miles from the “wet market” where the cover story has asserted this virus originated. H/T to Dan Bongino(Twitter handle @dbongino) for this tale of the despicable double-talk of the media. His episode Friday focused on the sickness of the Democrat-Media Complex. Watch it here if you have time:

I will tell you that the longer I observe the whole of our national polity, I am continually amazed at how absolutely disgusting is our so-called “Mainstream Media.” Sarah Palin had them pegged when she called them “Lamestream,” but lately, they seem to be more diabolical than that.

Back to the hospital in Elmhurst, Queens, why would they choose that hospital to target for their big scare story? On whom would this have the greatest effect? Amazing Polly figures that out for us, if we hadn’t guessed who might be from Queens, NY, who might be the target of a media disinformation campaign:

Every time I get the chance, I thank Polly for her work via Twitter. This video deserves a thorough watching. She admits up front that she can’t necessarily prove all of her conclusions, but she is always careful to provide documentation for the material she presents, in the information attached to her videos on YouTube. You can follow her on Twitter @99freemind. I don’t necessarily agree with her on everything, or subscribe to all the theories she presents, but I can tell you that she works very hard at her research, and she is very thorough, and also that she provides an alternative view of events and history that can offer a perspective that reveals new things the Lamestream Media will never, ever tell us. Give her a view if you haven’t already, and take the time to Like the videos of content creators like her and Dan Bongino.

Another person with whom you will cross paths if you research this overall CoronaVirus2019 shutdown is Candace Owens. Some of you will be familiar with her from FoxNews, or from other platforms, and on Twitter, she’s @RealCandaceO.  She has real courage in many respects, and one of them is her willingness to take on the #FakeNews, particularly with respect to issues of race, and also with the pigeon-holing of black Americans as Democrats.  She’s exposing those myths, and she has a new book coming out. Now, she’s exposing the governor of Connecticut who actually blamed the death of an infant on CoronaVirus when in fact, the death was due to being suffocated:

 

 

This sort of displacement of blame onto CoronaVirus is rampant in states run by Democrats. It’s being done to grab more of the federal relief money from the $2Trillion package that Congress passed last week.  It’s despicable, and it accounts for at least some of the mounting death toll being reported all over the news. It’s fraud. They’re mostly going to get away with it, since they compile the statistics, and they control the medical examiners, although these will mostly be considered “natural causes” and will never undergo autopsies.  I’m not suggesting that there are no CoronaVirus deaths, as I’m sure there are, but as I covered in my previous article, this is all being blown way out of proportion.  Now, we have even more evidence that this whole panic is contrived, and we also know the motive: This is all about elections, money, and power. What else? The idea here was to trap President Trump so that he would have to shut down the country. Instead, he left it to governors, as he should. He focused on the Federal response as is the job of the President.  In short, he took the steps appropriate to the President under our constitution, but this is also why the Democrat-Media Complex kept pressing the President to take more steps, and force a state quarantine in New York.

Today, at the press briefing by the President’s CoronaVirus Response Team, he made it plain: “We have to get back to work.”

Remember, if it’s bad for America, Democrats approve. If it’s bad for Trump, Democrats insist. The media is now so utterly broken that the smarmy reporters in the room can’t help but become snotty in their questioning of the President. If I were the President, I’d throw at least half of them off the White House grounds and tell their networks or papers to try again with somebody else.  There was never this kind of conduct toward President Obama. Not once.  Not even during his most miserable and provocative failures, when actual reporters would be expected to be more insistent in their questioning.  Here, the way these reporters talk to the President of the United States is an utter disgrace.  Even were I given the opportunity to question Barack Obama in the White House in the aftermath of Benghazi, I’d never have been so basically rude and disrespectful.  I certainly would have asked a couple seriously difficult questions. The problem here is that the media doesn’t really want any information.  They’re not really asking questions designed to reveal any news, but merely questions aimed at catching the President in some inconsistency, or in some sort of disagreement with one or more members of his team.  In some cases, they’re plainly argumentative.  Just once, in the eight years of the incompetent and corrupt Obama administration, they should have gone after that President with such fervent zeal.  Instead, they blithely pitched softballs that even the increasingly confused Joe Biden could hit out of the park.

Over the last few weeks, as the nation has attempted to deal with the WuFlu pandemic, one of the things that’s gotten short shrift is the economy.  We had an economy in pretty good condition by the middle of February, and as you’ll remember, unlike during the Obama administration when the jobs numbers were “unexpectedly poor,” instead our Department of Labor found itself having to upgrade the numbers in weeks following original reports that understated the economy’s performance.  Now, we’re losing jobs at a phenomenal rate, and President Trump has to do something to bring the economy back online soon, or the country will be wrecked.  Most of the small businesses shutting down are highly leveraged, and with a halt in revenues, they’re facing serious, perhaps catastrophic, consequences. The typical situation looks like a Mom-and-Pop shop of some sort, opened up a business on tight margins, perhaps by re-mortgaging a recently paid-off home. Now, shut down by order of some public official, usually a governor, county judge, city manager or mayor. they find themselves without revenue.  They have to lay off their employees, as a matter of pure financial survival, and then, within a month, they’re staring down the barrel of that debt service, and if they can’t service it, not only will they lose their business, but they might just lose everything. They’ll never be able to reopen.  They’ll never be able to call up employees and offer them their old jobs back. Instead, the avalanche will gather momentum and mass, with a mounting depression at the bottom of the hill.

I am reminded of a line by Bruce Willis in one of the many Die Hard sequels. The young guy he’s escorting to the FBI makes an off-hand remark about crashing the “system.” Willis’ character stops, and lets the kid have it a bit: “It’s not a system. It’s people!” Or something to that effect. His point was to say it is very easy to imagine shutting down a system like shutting down a computer or an assembly line.  For some reason, when people eliminate the myriad complications implied by specific, concrete human beings, it become easy to be cavalier about their disposition. The point Detective McClane was making is that “the system” is really people, and what you’re really talking about wrecking is the lives and dreams and aspirations and plans of real live people, just like you.

Democrats suffer from the same childish misunderstanding and unfocused view of the world around them. It’s easier to imagine an amorphous system that just gets “shut down.” The same is true of the economy.  They see it like turning off an engine.  Instead, it’s like putting a country’s worth of people into suspended animation, only without the preservative aspect.  The decay, the atrophy, the heart failures and the deaths begin to mount immediately. In short order, it’s much worse than any disease. Our country is much more complex than most people imagine, but the fundamentals of the situation are simple. We’re wrecking the economy, which means we’re wrecking businesses and that means we are wrecking people.  Each minute this goes on, more businesses are lost, and with them, jobs die. Most of them won’t be back, and this is where people who don’t understand the entrepreneurial cycle fail to see the real danger: Small business creates a sizable majority of jobs in the United States. If you’ve just gone out and created a business, and had it wrecked by a government-ordered closure, and probably lost substantial money, or worse, had your entire life’s work demolished, assuming you find yourself in the position to launch another business some day, would you? Why? The next time a virus comes along, the government might just shut you down again.

It isn’t simply that this response to this virus was overblown and entirely unnecessary, but that the entire methodology is bankrupt, unfeasible, and wrong. We must never permit this kind of shutdown again. Ever. Under any circumstance. We have created a situation that will take years to repair, if it can be fully repaired at all. Your individual rights are not and must not be subjected to the vagaries of virologists’ models. Your liberties must never be placed in the hands of governors, mayors, county judges, and other elected numb-skulls whose motives and decisions will always be dominated by politics, their public declarations to the contrary notwithstanding.

Ladies and gentlemen, the worst aspect of the great WuFlu shutdown of 2020 is the precedent set by permitting government to behave this way in the first place. The very idea that the government can order the shutdown of the country is a preposterous notion. This is tyranny, whether you’ve recognized it or not.  For the business owners whose concerns are now in serious jeopardy, if not already wrecked, this much is obvious. They’re carrying the largest burden in this entire fiasco, and those of us who do not bear their burdens should be thoughtful about the losses they face as a result. It is their lives and liberties, along with the properties of these entrepreneurs that have been cast onto the pyre of sacrifices created by this exercise of government authority.

I believe President Trump has been played, and the economy laid waste as a result of his desire to safeguard the lives of Americans. I believe the people upon whose guidance he relied are not all good people with innocent or virtuous motives. I also believe that certain elements opportunistically joined into this attack on our country. I know the President was trapped between doing what he believed at the time to be the best path for saving lives and what he knew would be catastrophic for the long-term economic and financial health of the country. I can forgive him for his motive of protecting and saving lives, but I’m less forgiving in another aspect: He should have recognized that the people around him were simply another brand of deep-state players, equally corrupt and equally apt to carry out a different form of a coup d’etat. If you don’t see that this has been the motive, I’d urge you to look more closely.

 

As one example, I want you to read this email from Dr. Fauci, first exposed by WikiLeaks:

The Media Biden Bait-and-Switch

Thursday, March 12th, 2020

Democrat-Media Complex Circling the Wagon Around Joe Biden

It has already begun. Since it has become increasingly apparent that former Vice President Joe Biden will be the Democrats’ choice for 2020, the so-called mainstream media has begun to circle their wagons in a protective screen around him.  Editing videos to exclude his most ridiculous, madcap, and explosive remarks, they’re doing their level best to hide from you how far Joe Biden has run off his rails. It’s not just that they’re a little deceitful, or that they’re using slick editing and packaging, but that they’re on a wholesale propaganda campaign by which they’re going to completely re-write not only Joe Biden’s more ancient history, but also his entire present.  They’re going to hide from the world how truly bad Biden’s condition is, at least until they can get him elected and sworn-in. Then, and only then, will they let the truth out: Joe Biden is about three minutes away from drooling down his chin.  That’s when the replacement will happen.  The Democrats are going to pull a bait-and-switch built on lies.

“Here’s good, solid, moderate Lunch-Bucket Joe. You can trust him.” If they can manage to get him through to the oval office, it will become “Poor, poor Joe. He needs to be removed for his own good and the good of the country.”

This is all they’re up to, but to carry it off, they’re going to need to get a significant number of Americans to believe it. The party faithful will vote for him because he’s their guy. No other qualification is necessary.  The bulk of the Democrat Party is Yellow-Dog these days, but the people they need to convince are the independents. This group of voters are frequently what I call “Windsocks.”  They’ll go whichever way the political and/or cultural winds are blowing.

If you want to defeat Joe Biden’s running mate(because that’s what will be at stake,) you’ll need to make that case to the Windsocks.

It’s going to astonish you.  You will come to see that the Democrat-Media Complex[DMC] is more capable than you had feared.  They’re going to whitewash Creepy Joe Biden until the casual observer(most Americans) will come to believe he’s “not so bad.” That’s the aim.  That’s the purpose for which all of these DMC cretins are now assembling, and it’s against this narrative which we must fight.

The truth is that Joe Biden has been a creepy, corrupt politician for years.  The fact is that he’s gotten away with it by being a loyal part of the DC Uni-Party.  In the end, however, the Democrats are going to pitch him over the side when it comes time.  In the mean time, they have a tall order: They need to draw the American people into electing this pig in a poke, While the #WuFlu is an opportunist’s goldmine for the Democrats, it’s just part of their arsenal. They’re going to keep this going all year long. Finally, for the sake of normalcy, they’re hoping the Windsocks will vote their way, overlooking all of Biden’s shortcomings.

That’s the game.

The Democrats’ Dog-And-Pony Primary

Process of Elimination or Divide and Conquer or Both?

Americans shouldn’t be fooled any longer. Whether it’s the Democrats and their pool of corrupt candidates, or the Republicans and their usual slate of acceptable losers, you need to understand how things are actually done.  You don’t really believe the selection of the President is to be left to you, rank-and-file, ordinary Americans, do you?  Please.  If I’ve learned nothing else in the years I’ve been blogging about the sad realities of both parties, it is that under ordinary circumstances, they’re never, ever, EVER going to let the people choose their own President.  Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats have any interest in seeing that much power vested in the electorate.  The party establishment picks the candidates for both parties, except in an all out revolt.  President Trump won the nomination and the presidency through such a revolt, but the establishment isn’t going to let him keep it if they can help it.  If Democrats are looking at the outcome of the current primary season in dismay, I don’t understand why.  Long ago, you chose party over any principle.  Now, they’re feasting at the table they’ve set, and yet seem to have lost their appetites now that they see the main course is a near-octogenarian duffer who couldn’t possibly win without the whole process having been stage-managed. That’s right, it’s been stage-managed, and Joe Biden will be their candidate, and if they can, he’ll be their President until they can eject him under the 25th amendment.  (That’s if he manages to survive through the convention and election.)

Folks, in 2016, the establishment was all set to pull their usual stunt on Republicans.  They had JEB Bush as their chosen man, and they had all the other smaller players meant to appeal to the various segments of the party.  For the staunch Christians, they had Santorum and Huckabee.  For the “moderate” East-coast Republicans, they had Chris Christie.  For the more secular but still staunchly conservative voters, they had Ted Cruz.  For the libertarian-minded Republicans, they had Rand Paul.  For the Cuban segment so important to Floridian politics, they had Marco Rubio.  For the moderate Republican woman who was somehow convinced that only a woman would do, they had Carly Fiorina.  For those who thought the Republicans needed to make ground in the black community, they had the kindly Dr. Ben Carson, who was apparently never all too serious about his candidacy.

All of these were to be the “non-establishment” alternatives whose candidacies would be killed-off one in turn after the other, until all that remained was JEB and perhaps somebody to whom they’d give the Vice Presidency to seal the deal.  This is how it worked in 2011-12.  It was always going to be Romney.  It’s classic divide-and-conquer.  What interrupted all of this in 2016 was one very unexpected outsider, Donald J. Trump, who observed this process play out in 2011-12.  He jumped into the candidacy in 2015 and started with an endorsement from an expected-but-not-realized 2012 candidate: Governor Sarah Palin.  From there, he took on JEB directly, and several of the easy chumps, like Christie.  He flipped the game on the establishment.  He beat them at their own game.  In the end, it came down to him and Ted Cruz, and in this way, when Cruz came home to the party after the convention, so did his supporters, and with them, just enough electoral inertia to win the general election.

What do you think 2020’s Democrat primary season has been all about?  Do you really think Joe Biden is a candidate who is in any way a viable candidate, on his own, and independent of the party’s establishment?  Not a chance.  Joe Biden is a puppet, and with his increasing dementia, he’s perfect.  Bernie will stick around, probably until the convention, so he can keep his “bros” active and engaged.  The Democrats will need as many of them as they can get on election day.  Bernie was never, ever, EVER going to be permitted to win the nomination.  I’m sorry for those who thought otherwise, but the establishment’s in a bit of a pickle this cycle, and they simply can’t permit it, just as they couldn’t permit it in 2016. In this case, their situation is even more desperate.  There’s already an insurgent in the office, and they cannot afford another.  If anybody stumbles across the full truth of what they’ve been doing all these long years, it’s curtains for them for at least a generation.

President Trump has figured out some of it, at the very least, and increasingly, it may be that he’s unraveling the establishment’s big game.  I think this is the reason Mark Meadows is now his Chief of Staff.  I think this is the reason we’re soon going to see further moves aimed at undoing some of the deep state.  What do you think this whole thing with the Novel Coronavirus 2019, a.k.a., the #WuhanVirus, a.k.a. the #WuFlu, is all about anyway?  This is all about the establishment being willing to wreck the entire global economy in order to protect their secrets.  They’re willing to kill-off human beings in the thousands or millions in order to keep what’s hidden in its present state of concealment.

Joe Biden will win the nomination, but one of two things will happen: He’ll be replaced at the convention, or if he actually runs through the general, if they can push him across the finish line, they’ll swear him in as President in January 2021, and then promptly break out the 25th Amendment to oust him.  Look at who he’s already put out there as his cabinet-in-waiting: They’re all Soros-Obama stooges who will follow orders.  Joe Biden is a vehicle, and I think his wife, Jill, whatever else is true about her, has begun to see the truth.  I think she knows, and I think she’s mortified by it.  When Joe stumbles in his speech, or goes on to his next bizarre “gaffe,” if she’s in-frame, you can see her grimace in anguish.  She seems either to really love him, or is at least guilt-stricken at what’s being done to him, or both. Whatever the case, it’s clear that Joe Biden has no business running for President, and whomever is running this operation is just using up what remains of poor ol’ Joe.  He’s corrupt, and maybe they’ll use him as a scapegoat for the whole sick affair in Ukraine and China.  There’s more corruption than you can imagine, and the DC Uni-party wants it all hidden.

I feel bad for rank-and-file Democrats, in much the same way I felt bad for rank-and-file Republicans in 2012, and in previous election cycles.  There’s nothing honest about the DC media-politics oligopoly, and there’s no chance they’ll ever willingly let the American people win and choose their own President, (or keep him,) if they can help it.  They have too much at stake.  There’s too much corruption to cover under a veil of officialdom and official secrecy.  It’s despicable.  I hope more Democrats figure out what’s been done to them, just as I hope more Republicans will figure out what had been done to them in cycle after cycle.  It’s time to begin an American party, with broad consensus on the basics, and then to clean out the nest of vipers that has been running Washington DC for most all the years of my life, and yours.  Realizing that at present, Donald Trump is actually the only vehicle for that reform is something more people in both parties should do.

 

The Enemy: We the People

Saturday, October 12th, 2019

The New Enemy: We the People

I’ve been rattling around this old world for more than one-half century. I’ve seen a lot of despicable things, and I’ve seen the media make them more despicable by their dishonest coverage. I’ve seen cabals and plots and a number of conspiracies, but I’ve never seen anything even approaching the diabolical nature of this coup d’etat against Donald Trump, the Constitution of the United States, and We, the People who had formed it.  This is one for the record-books, and it very well may succeed, because the conspirators have succeeded in doing something I knew was theoretically possible, but never expected anybody to actually undertake.  The conspirators in this plot are not only real, and not merely diabolical, but they are also smart and ruthless.  They are setting-up the most dangerous sort of trap you could imagine, and they’re going to use our constitution to achieve it.  Ladies and gentlemen, it is much worse than they’re letting on.  It’s much bigger than they’re portraying.  Both side are down-playing it as they race to that moment in which they will strike, and to whomever goes the initiative, so too will the victory belong.  The left has finally engineered their dream scenario, in which they will claim to be the patriots and the defenders of the Republic, while we, the people, are denounced and ultimately vanquished as the enemy of the United States of America.

My long-time readers will know that I’m serious, and that I’m about to make a point to which attention must be paid, but new readers may be recoiling from my thesis because it seems so…”extreme.” The climax of any scenario may seem to be extreme, particularly for those who hadn’t expected it. The finality of death may seem extreme to those who had never contemplated it.  The truth is that we now live in a time of extremes, and the question that may well confront us is whether we have the courage to face them, and in proximity to them, rise to match them.

Here’s the basic plot: Democrats and their media shield are now proceeding with their plot to overthrow the United States government in the person of Donald J. Trump. He is the duly elected president of the United States, and since his election, they have been trying to undermine and overthrow him.  The reasons are many and varied, because for the rank-and-file opponents, it is the fact of his continuance in that office against which they rebel, exerting his policy preferences on the nation, to the chagrin and disgruntlement of the leftist hordes.  For mid-level leftists, in the political establishment and the press, it is the fact that he makes bare the edifice of lies about the necessity of the whole political machinery.  He won with a fraction of the expenditures and only a tiny fraction of the number of apparatchiks customary to a modern presidential campaign.  In truth, he represents a revolution against them. For the upper-crust leftists, Trump represents another type of existential threat, made of their criminal liabilities.  This upper-crust has had its crimes white-washed, concealed, or pardoned in one fashion or another.  They’ve had their prosecutions declined, and they’ve had all their legal sins washed away, or would have, if only he hadn’t been elected.  Now, their crimes for greed and their crimes for family are too close to exposure, and worst of all, their crimes against humanity and their treason, little and large, are far too close to discovery.  For some of them, discovery would mean the effective loss of their entire lives’ toil in acquisition of ill-gotten wealth. For others, it might mean an actual loss of life, as some might even face the gallows for their crimes.

If any larger portion of this be true, then it is all the motive any collection of philosophical fellow-travelers and partners-in-crime would ever need to carry out such a plot. You can pretend to yourself that this is all too big, or that it couldn’t possibly be, but ask yourself this: If you and your spouse are now worth one-hundred-million dollars so long as the totality of your corruption can be kept secret, and your treason can be buried sufficiently, what wouldn’t you do? To what lengths wouldn’t you go? To what depths of depravity wouldn’t you descend? Which arms wouldn’t you twist?  Which debts wouldn’t you call? Very quickly, one realizes that an environment comprised of such people would shortly resemble an ecology of gangsters, every bit as lethal as any mafia the world has known.

Now you understand the motives, but now we must understand the methodology. The methodology of the left has ever been to accuse others of what it is they’ve done, or are doing. It’s a methodology that serves them well because they are in collusion with the media and the so-called “Deep-State.” In fact, it’s fair to consider them together as one contiguous, unified organism. They coordinate across levels, within levels, and across national or organizational boundaries.  They’re in everything, everywhere.  As we’ve seen, they’re in Congress, but they’re in the White House. They’re in the FBI, but they’re in NGOs(Non-Governmental Organizations.) They’re in the media, and they’re in the private sector. What binds them all together? Can you guess? Yes, it’s guilt. People like Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell trade on that guilt. Strange, isn’t it? Epstein died, and almost all coverage of him has disappeared, and with it, all coverage of the guilty elites over whom he held sway, and their wrong-doings, by which he held such power.

Do you think Epstein was the only one of his kind? How many of you have even heard of the NXIVM sex-slavery cult? It was used at least in part by extortionists as a manner of extracting control, money and power over the people over which it held influence. How can it be that a thing like this exists and was prosecuted, but the bulk of Americans have never heard of it?  Don’t “google” it though. Try duckduckgo.com instead.

How can one get rid of a President like Donald J. Trump? One would have to find him guilty of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” In the seemingly unlikely event that one can’t find any legitimate grounds for impeachment and removal, one must fabricate some. This was the basis for the whole “Russia” hoax, and it has been behind every attempt to unseat him.  In the case of this latest “Ukraine” scandal, the best primer on it may come from the unlikely source, Glenn Beck. It’s not that Beck hasn’t uncovered some interesting stories over the years, but to say that most people don’t consider him hard news so much as infotainment. Fair or not, that’s how most view him, but his coverage on the Ukraine story is exhaustive and quite detailed.

Below is a short version, but on his program on BlazeTV, you can view the full version of his explanation of the Ukraine scandal. Here, in a detailed explanation of the facts, Beck lays out a fuller picture of the scandal about which you’ve only heard but a little:

I want you to notice that this was published by Beck on the 3rd of October. I am willing to bet that almost none of you had heard of former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch prior to the last couple of days, but she is a key figure in Beck’s presentation of more than a week ago.  On Friday the 11th, she was testifying before Adam Schiff’s rogue committee.  Watch Beck’s presentation, and then do the math. Beck doesn’t here guess with any specificity what might have happened to the seven billion missing dollars, but that doesn’t stop us from guessing, does it?  Clinton Foundation?  Clinton Global Initiative?  Some portion absorbed by oligarchs in payment for the money-laundering? There’s no way to say with any certainty, at this moment, but it’s certainly worth all the trouble of ditching Donald Trump.

Now Congress is carrying out a coup d’etat disguised as an impeachment.  They’re going to get rid of Trump, and you’re going to witness histrionics in the United States Senate by Republicans. They’re going to deliver the coup de grâce to Donald J. Trump. They’re going to betray the constitution of the United States, and at present, their leader is none other than Trump nemesis Willard “Mitt” Romney. He and two dozen other compromised Republican senators are going to strike the fatal blow to the Trump presidency.  At that point, you will have a choice, and that choice will come down to this:

You will either except this false procedure, and watch as the American Republic is killed in fact while a sad charade goes on ever after, or you will take up arms to stop it.

That’s your choice. The left has placed you in the position that to support the truth, and to support what is right, you will have to voluntarily choose to fulfill the role of the revolutionary.  They will portray you as the instigators of the coup d’etat.  Once they arrive at this point, their overthrow will have succeeded. Checkmate.

I’m not certain anybody on the side of the genuine patriots understand this yet.  I’m not certain everybody in Trump-land quite perceives this.  I believe what we are about to witness is either a rebirth of the genuine republic, or its final overthrow. Should you dare to rise against it, you will be portrayed as the traitors. You will face the gallows. Do you now see?  Never in American history will there have been a greater divergence of the “spirit of the law” from the letter of the law.

We are now in a race, and indeed, we have been all this time since Trump’s election. I don’t know how many of the parties involved knew they were in a race. I don’t know if it matters whether they knew. If Nancy Pelosi succeeds in carrying out her impeachment before the forces seeking actual justice can succeed in so doing, this will be the end of the United States.  I don’t know if Q is/was real or not, but I can tell you that whomever is Qanon, they knew this is a race.  Whether intended to stall, or to cover, I cannot possibly know, and only time will tell, but here’s where we stand: Trump’s forces are in a deadly race with the Deep State.  Time is short now, and I think we will be lucky to go into the new year as we entered the current one. Perhaps fittingly, the year 2020 will provide clarity.  Unfortunately, the picture we will see may be a terrible vision and a future in which justice has been thwarted.  You know what may be coming, my long-time readers, because you’re studious and because you know history. It’s up to you to prepare the rest of our population who may have no clue.  To defend the Republic, and to protect its legitimacy, oddly, patriots may need to risk being labeled rebels – to be called “enemies of the state” by the very traitors who now plot against our President, our republic, and indeed, the whole body of our people.  The framers of our constitution, and the founders of our nation knew this danger all too well, but their singularly most important historical virtue may be that they risked all for love of country. All I can say is that if President Trump calls for aid, patriots must be prepared to move.

Do as you will, but for my part, I will answer the call.

Donald Trump’s “Read My Lips” Moment

Friday, August 9th, 2019

Will he fold?

My friend and self-described “brother-from-another-mother” Youtube star Mr. L, of Mr. L’s Tavern described it correctly today. In a discussion of the choice facing President Trump with the entire Red Flag Law/Gun Control agenda, he correctly pointed to the fact that the President has made too many promises with too much resolute vigor to retreat at this late date.  To do so risks certain alienation of a substantial portion of his loyal base.  In 1990, in the midst of a negotiation with Democrats over the budget, President George H.W. Bush went along with the Democrats on a luxury tax and a number of other items.  It resulted in a shallow recession, but more importantly, it meant that he had forsaken his 1988 promise to Republicans: “Read my lips, NO NEW TAXES!” In 1992, Democrats, who had shoved the taxes down his throat because THEY had wanted them, took the occasion of his tax increases to hang the entire albatross around his neck. Ross Perot and Bill Clinton mocked him endlessly. The Democrats attacked and attacked. Most importantly, however, the base of the GOP abandoned him. It could even be said that the portion of the party that abandoned the elder Bush would come to be the Trump wing of the party.  In the same way, in 2015-16, Donald Trump promised repeatedly to protect your second amendment rights. No small number of conservatives supported him on this basis alone. Here we stand in 2018, and Donald Trump’s “Read My Lips” moment has arrived, just as Mr. L has described.  Well, President Trump? Will he fail us as George H.W. Bush and so many other ordinary politicians have done in the past?  We will find out in due course, naturally, but I don’t believe there’s any way for Mr. Trump to avoid his “Read My Lips” moment, and the Democrats and NeverTrump Republicans know it.

It’s why they’re pushing him so hard. It’s not so much a problem that conservatives will find another candidate, as they will simply stay home, unwilling to support him. Donald Trump should fear that, because it’s what ultimately killed McCain and Romney in their bids for the presidency. Too many conservatives stayed home.

If he goes along with all of this, that’s just what I’m going to do.

Democrats Flooding Presidential Field

Sunday, January 13th, 2019

The latest Democrat to announce she’ll throw her hat into the ring is Hawaiian Representative Tulsi Gabbard.  The 37-year-old combat veteran joins a growing list of Democrats with short résumés crowding the field.  Of course, among Democrats, such a politician stands some chance of winning the nomination, if only because Democrats seem to seek out electoral phenomena rather than qualified leaders.  In some rare cases, like in 2008, they’re able to prevail.  Across America, there are dozens of female Democrat politicians who want to be the first female president.  It’s not to say there aren’t any in the Republican party, but Republican women generally seek to make their own résumés stronger, knowing that while the media will give popular Democrats a pass on qualifications, there’s no chance a Republican will ever be treated that way.  Young and relatively attractive, Gabbard has been cultivating an image as a “moderate” in her party, but it’s all show.  In the end, she’s another leftist, and she will advance the interests of the state.  Even twenty years ago, I’d have said she’s nuts.  Nowadays, given the direction of the Democrat Party, that seeks power at the expense of all else, anything is possible.  In a rational civilization, none of these people would have a chance, and that’s a problem for Democrats.

Gabbard is writing a memoir, which is another laughable notion, in my view.  I’m sixteen years her senior, and I don’t warrant a memoir.  In fact, I don’t want to read a person’s autobiography or memoir until they’re at least sixty years old, and then, they’d better have something compelling to say.   At thirty-seven years of age, the last four spent in Congress, what exactly has she done that is so memorable?  I don’t wish to belittle her combat experience, as she did her duty and did it honorably by all reports, but it wasn’t exactly like Audie Murphy’s. It’s also useful to note that she was a legislative aid to long-time Hawaiian Senator Daniel Akaka, a mostly useless legislator but reliable vote for the Democrats.  I don’t know that this is the source of her qualification.  By the time the 2020 campaign begins in earnest later this year, she’ll have roughly five years in the House of Representatives.  For the same reason I don’t think Robert Francis “BETO” O’Rourke is qualified on the basis of his congressional service, neither is she.

To report it bluntly, this is a problem that face most of the younger Democrats who plan on running for the Presidency: They’re not really an accomplished lot, all in all.  That doesn’t mean they can’t win, but it does mean they have serious credibility problems with a huge proportion of voters.  The most likely nominee is probably former Vice President Joe Biden, who despite his age, has plenty of pull within the Democrat Party establishment.  If Gabbard and some of the other younger Democrats are shrewd, they know this and will try to hitch themselves to Biden as the Vice Presidential candidate, and that could be Gabbard’s play here.  She doesn’t have the name recognition even within her own party yet, but if she plays her cards right, she might elevate herself in this way.

Part of the problem for Democrats is that they have either old tired bulls like Biden and a completely damaged old socialist like Bernie Sanders(I-VT,) or crazy, damaged moon-bats like Elizabeth Warren(D-MA). This leaves the inexperienced youngsters like Gabbard.  That’s not a solid path to the presidency, and if President Trump decides to seek a second term, his list of accomplishments to date will make him formidable for re-election.  Never forget that the power of incumbency is huge.  Few sitting presidents are ever defeated, and it takes a truly terrible performance for the people who elected a President to reverse their previous vote.

What I think candidates like Gabbard indicate is the frailty of the Democrat Party.  She would make a formidable candidate if she first spent some time as Governor, or something along those lines, but at present, she’s not ready.  This is the case for many Democrats in this rapidly expanding field.  There’s almost no chance they’ll be elected, but rank-and-file Democrats under forty tend to vote on emotion, so one can never say “never.”  During his two terms, Barack Obama did very little to grow the next generation of Democrat politicians.  They have some youngsters with promise, but they need more experience.  One might consider the laughable young New York Congressional member, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and it’s easy to see how Democrats can become so enthusiastic about her.  She’s raising unholy Hell at the moment, but it’s only a matter of time until leadership in the party reins her in.

Democrats face a serious problem in 2020.  Their surplus of viable candidates is mostly illusory, as demonstrated by Gabbard.  Strictly, she’s apparently a natural born citizen who has obtained the age of 35 years, but apart from military service and a few terms in Congress, I don’t see any accomplishments in her history that imply a significant or compelling qualification.  There is no record of having accomplished anything.  Where is the legislative record?  It’s pretty thin.  All in all, this is what most of the Democrats must confront.  Their old bulls have serious weaknesses.  If the Democrats run Clinton again, they’ll be beaten even worse than in 2016.  If Bernie runs, it will be a catastrophe of competing grievances against him.  He’s too damaged now to win the Presidency, and it’s now getting worse daily with the latest revelations about his 2016 campaign.  Biden certainly has a chance at winning the nomination, and with a younger, vibrant Vice Presidential running mate, perhaps like Gabbard, he might be able to pull it off.  The truth is, however, that despite their apparent electoral advantages, Democrats have a serious problem: They’re mostly not likable, by and large, and in their party, that emotional pull is a prerequisite, but even where they meet it, they’re desperately inexperienced.  As they flood in to fill the field, they should take care not to leave their few viable contenders in the position of lifeguards surrounded by a desperate crowd of drowning people.  Those who find themselves drowning may drag the stronger swimmers under with them.
