A Time for Choosing…Again

Saturday, December 1st, 2018

trump_retweetIt was more than fifty years ago when, while campaigning on behalf of Barry Goldwater in October of 1964, Ronald Reagan asserted that America had arrived at one of those moments in history when the choice before the nation would set out direction for generations to come.  He called it “A Time for Choosing,” and parts or all of his speech is still replayed on talk radio shows, and quoted extensively in conservative media.  What’s not often mentioned often enough is that American chose incorrectly in that election, and we’ve paid a steep price ever since.  I’m no Ronald Reagan, but I contend that we have again arrived at “A Time for Choosing,” although in this case, the choice is not about an election.  This time, we’re confronted by something far more terrible.  This time, it’s not about our politicians, or even our laws, but instead about us.  It may or may not be resolved be elections.  It may result in a mass resort to violence.  Ladies and gentlemen, we now exist in a period not unlike 1860-61, a nation so thoroughly divided that it may not be held together.  The Special Counsel is using his offices and authority to gather and impound all of the evidence against himself and his co-conspirators.  Robert Mueller is attempting a new sort of coup d’etat, and if we permit it, we will never see liberty again.  Neither will our great-grandchildren.  It’s time to choose, and now, you must choose a side. Will you stand for our republic as you have so often pledged, or will you let the feral swine who have corrupted our system continue to run riot on our nation?  I, for one, will stand.

The Republican Party is a bankrupt institution.  They set aside conservative principles long ago in favor of pragmatism and electoral success.  They were also morally compromised, and easily gave over to extortion.  The Democrat Party is even worse, corroded over long decades by all sorts of communist and socialist radicals who have finally converted their party into the overt manifestation of Bolshevism in the United States.  The fact that Robert Francis O’Rourke(D-NY) could come so close to victory in Texas is evidence enough of the dire straits into which our nation has drifted.  That a bumbling, moronic dimwit like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez(D-NY,) perhaps challenging even Houston’s own Shiela Jackson Lee(D-TX) for the title “dumbest person in Congress,” would not be possible but for the fact that America has chosen wrong regularly since Reagan put that choice to her people more than fifty years ago.  Our elected officials either seem unaware of what’s happening, or they seem to want what is coming. They exhibit no concern whatever for the future of the country, and no remorse whatever for what they will do to our children.  Meanwhile, the vast body of the people stands by silently, letting it happen with little or no opposition.

You might ask me what I’m on about. After all, this isn’t the first time I have issued a dire warning about the condition of our republic, and probably won’t be the last.  In this case, however, the cause is encapsulated in the speech of Dan Bongino, below.  He outlined what has really happened, and what’s worse is that he explains what’s likely to be the result.  Watch it:

If Bongino is correct, inasmuch as he suggests that justice will not come for the corrupt bastards running the show, our republic is dead.  Dead.  The trouble is that you will decide that matter.  Either you will insist on justice, or your will not.  This isn’t about whether you like or hate Donald Trump.  It’s not about any of that political claptrap.  This is about whether we’re going to have a republic of the sort to which we claim to pledge our allegiance, or instead a sort of banana-republic with a mere facade of “liberty and justice for all.”  Is this going to be the Potemkin village of liberty?  Were all our war dead sacrificed for that?

I want you to think most thoroughly about the meaning of what Bongino has laid out.  Just like Bongino, Trump was not my pick in the primaries of 2016.  Just like Bongino, I’ve come to admire the fact that for all his myriad flaws, it seems that Donald Trump loves the country, and that he at least fights like Hell. What bothers me most in all Bongino says here is a notion he confirmed in his podcast of Friday, the 30th of November: There will be a deal.

His proposition is that this scandal has been so broad and so vast and included large numbers of figures in the Clinton-Obama orbit that there is no way to bring them all simultaneously to justice, and that to attempt it would be to throw the country into anarchy, chaos, and turmoil.  His implication is that the Clinton-Obama crew has intentionally fomented a hair-trigger reaction from their political adherents such that we’d have an insurrection of some sort, were all the criminals simultaneously rounded-up.

Obviously, this is too small a blog for Mr. Bongino to know of, but I wish I had a way to convey to him a few things:

1.) This is personal. The toll the Clinton crime family, and all those connected to them, have exacted upon the people of this country is large, real, and thorough. I don’t care what the cost may be any longer.  After almost three decades of watching these people make utter wreckage of our nation, it is time they are brought before the bar of justice, and if we must have civil strife to bring them to justice, then let me sign first on the dotted line to be among the instruments that will quell that strife. My life, my fortune, and my sacred honor. All these, whatever token value they may be, I pledge to the preservation of the republic.

2.) This is a matter of Justice. Our US Department of justice has been an incredibly corrupt joke ever since the Clintons began using FBI files to blackmail members of Congress and their staff, members of the bureaucracy, and also members of the judiciary back in the 1990s. The entire US Federal government, including segments of every department, have been hollowed-out and undermined by this stinking, festering rot of corruption, favoritism, and extortion ever since.  There can be no restoration of the Department of Justice, never mind justice itself, if any sort of deal is made.  These people must all go down, whatever the cost.  If we must make a deal with the villains, there can be no justice, and the restoration of our Republic will remain out of reach, foiled this time by those who ought to have been its champions.

3.) It is said that the American people will not be able to process it all if such were to happen in one fell swoop.  I disagree.  I believe people of good nature and good faith have lost their trust in the righteous nature of the most of the American people.  Perhaps too long in and amongst the villains, some seem too willing to accept the villains’ assessments of the American people.  It’s as if they believe we “can’t handle the whole truth.” I assure you, this is a faulty notion and belief.  If the President and his cabinet and other relatively clean leaders in DC and around the country go forth to tell the American people the whole truth, the American people will hear it, but those who do not and who will not are likely of the same corrupted class as the villains.

To Mr. Bongino, I would say that the idea that it would be too much for the American republic to survive is to underestimate the heart of what is the republic.  At no other time in history has the republic been more ripe for such a revival.  Our young people don’t believe in America’s greatness, we are told.  If those who had known better will now shrink from justice because it might incite a brief but calamitous fight, is their cynicism not justified? Wouldn’t it be to surrender and thereby prove the purveyors of their anti-American indoctrination correct?

I don’t speak for any person but myself.  I’m just a guy with a few remaining brain-cells and a keyboard. In this instance, and in the name of the republic, I need a president who won’t make a deal.  I’ve heard it said that the true art of the deal is to know when to say: “No deal.”

Now is that time for choosing again, but this time, if we fail – if we choose incorrectly again – there will be no chance at redemption.  Mr. President, the American people have been betrayed too often by their leaders, with too many bad deals.  Now it is time for you to say “No deals.”

Burn them all, and let us rebuild the Republic in sight of their ash-heap.

What’s Bill Clinton’s Angle?

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Contemplating a Hillary Candidacy?

Any time you see Bill Clinton slithering onto a stage, you can assume something sneaky is close at hand.  As BusinessInsider is reporting, Clinton is critical of Obama’s Deficit Plan on the basis that it raises taxes during a recession.  Now for all his spouting about being a “centrist Democrat,” the truth is that Bill Clinton isn’t really a small government sort of guy, so you may wonder what’s really going on here.  As I explained to you that Barack Obama’s Deficit/Debt Plan, which is a hard-left plan going nowhere, but offered as a way to solidify Obama’s hard-left base, you might consider against whom he wishes to defend his re-nomination.  The answer is none other than his own Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

What Bill Clinton is doing in this instance is a step in positioning, whereby Hillary will challenge Obama from “the center” which is ground she doesn’t occupy, but in a contested primary, she might be able to claim, knowing that in any general election, the base will come home to her.  It’s basically the Democrat version of what Romney is gambling: Capture the more moderate wing of his party, and gamble that the base will support him in the general election.

This is a strategy with which the Clintons are very familiar.  It’s how they managed to climb into power the first time around, with a little help from Ross Perot.  Slick is simply laying the groundwork for Hillary, who while claiming she will not run, nevertheless seems increasingly likely to jump in given the extreme dissatisfaction among the base of the party.  No in truth, the hard-core left of the Democrat party knows Hillary is every bit as socialistic as they are, but what she offers is a fresh chance to fool independents and moderates.  Obama is so damaged with the political middle in the country that it may be completely impossible for him to recover.

The Clintons are gambling on a little positioning to place Hillary to the right of Obama, and Bill’s distancing from Obama’s proposed tax increases is a part of laying that groundwork.  Be prepared to be told that “Hillary is a centrist.”  Don’t believe it, because it’s a thorough lie, but that’s how it will be presented. This is why Hillary has carefully cultivated an image as a hard-working, always on-the-go Secretary of State:  She’s trying to establish her foreign policy and executive experience credentials.  As the head of the Department of State, she will claim that experience, but the problem will be in demonstrating her effectiveness.

Don’t be surprised when Hillary jumps into the race.  She’s already the most popular Democrat in the country.  When you begin to combine all of these stories, you see a clear pattern, and it looks increasingly probably that Hillary Clinton will join the race.  That will make for a knock-down, drag-out fight as Obama has lost the confidence of many in his party, and in left-wing intelligentsia.  The Democrats aren’t so happy or in nearly the lock-step bliss they would like for you to believe.
