We Must Remove Them All

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

Do We Deserve the Country They Built?

When one thinks about what form the post-COVID word will take, one thing nags at me above all others. All of these public officials who have been willing to strip from us our civil liberties, often without any legitimate authority to do so, will be left in place to do this to us again the next time somebody decides “necessity” demands it.  I don’t care if they’re Republican or Democrat or Independent.  I don’t care whether they’re a lowly County Commissioner, a County judge, a mayor, a school superintendent, or a Governor.  None of these people have the authority they’ve seized, and as courts continue to make that point abundantly clear, I think it’s up to us to examine our own behaviors in response to these various mandates, decrees, and executive dicta that have so thoroughly demolished American life.  We must never permit this again, and indeed, we must put a stop to its continuance now. In order to see this through is going to require an active, rebellious citizenry, unwilling to suffer any more of the indignities being heaped upon us.  We must rid ourselves of all the petty tyrants, big and small. We must leave none of them with any power to do this again.  We must punish them, and we must teach them a lesson: Our liberties are not disposable, nor are our lives, our livelihoods, our businesses, or even our leisure activities.  This is our country, and to preserve it, we must throw off all of these dictators-in-waiting.  If they made mask mandates, closed down businesses, ordered school closures, or took any other action that restricted the lives and movements of Americans, they must be removed. All of them.

Early on Tuesday, I had been watching the most recent video on YouTube by the creator Amazing Polly, entitled It’s Your Funeral.  She’s Canadian, but she has a strong affinity for America, and I think she recognizes that if Americans won’t fight, her country will easily be subsumed into whatever global catastrophes to which America falls.  In particular, in this video, one of the things she addresses that caught my attention was her discussion of the psychology of isolation, and of tyranny. You can view the section of the video I’m referencing below. The portion on which I’d like to focus runs from approximately the 9:02 to the 27:02 timestamps. You may wish to skip ahead to the 9:00 mark:

Polly’s point is an important one. In fact, I’d like to expand on it, because I’ve observed a phenomenon since the onset of the various lock-downs and mask-mandates that troubles me greatly.  She mentions the Milgrim Electric Shock experiment, and she gives a decent explanation of the basic premises that inquiry investigated.  Basic human psychology doesn’t really change much, because we’re wired the same as people who lived one-hundred or one-thousand years ago, despite the artifices all our modern technology provides.  What’s most interesting about the experiment is how rapidly people become desensitized to the infliction of pain on others, how accepting of isolation they become, and just how readily people, all people, can be persuaded by authorities to do the most egregious things to one another.

This is even more remarkably distinct among people who already live and work in a martial or quasi-martial environment, like military or police.  It’s quite plausible, based on my experiences and observations that people in those environments, already inculcated and indoctrinated to take orders and execute them more or less unquestioningly to pick up on this behavior even more readily than their civilian counterparts. Of course, it’s not just police and military, but also any hierarchical structure, like education or medicine, where this becomes a problem.  Accustomed to following orders handed-down from on high, people in those fields are potentially just as dangerous when under such demands.  Obedience and compliance become the keys to survival within such institutions, and it is this that, more than any other thing, should concern us when regarding all of these would-be dictators at the state and local levels.  People who can uncritically accept specious “science” which on one day tells you masks are pointless but on the next tells you they are indispensable in stopping the spread of a virus are just the sort of persons who should never be entrusted with or granted any power over their fellow man.

It’s been asked in innumerable forms how it was possible for the German people to permit the holocaust.  While I am not here directly comparing mask orders to the holocaust, what I seek to examine is the basic human psychology that permits either.  You see, we have had countless incidents of otherwise innocent and peaceable people being accosted by authorities in one form or another for refusing to wear masks, or maintain strict “social distance.” See below for one recent example:

I’m quite afraid of what might have happened had I been present for this. I don’t believe I’d have been able to sit by and watch this assault go on. I’m as big a supporter of law enforcement as any, but this behavior by this school resource officer was completely unjustified.  I don’t care what else is said about this incident, but the fact that an armed man was willing to use [less] lethal force(NOT non-lethal) against an unarmed woman for the “crime” of not wearing a mask when she’s clearly well beyond six feet from anybody not related to her is ridiculous.  Frankly, none of the powers of arrest or force should ever have come into play here.  The officer should be fired.  His credentials should be stripped. Every person in the chain of command between him and the Governor of Ohio should be removed from their offices, forcibly if need be, and they should all be charged for varying degrees of criminality. What was done in this case was a complete demolition of this woman’s civil liberties, and the institution directly responsible should be made to pay compensation.  If she is not able to obtain satisfaction by legal means, she would be morally justified in almost any action she would thereafter take in response.  She is entitled to her pound of flesh.

Will you suggest to me otherwise? Stop! Please leave my website. You don’t belong here. You don’t need to read anything I’ve heretofore written. You’re not fully human, and your willingness to submit to this idiocy is all the evidence I need of your inhumanity.  Law is important, critical in fact, but it is not everything and cannot substitute for morality, but for those of you who would happily go along with this woman’s abuse at the hands of the authorities, you are morally no different from the dirt-bags in Germany who went along with their atrocities. Yes, I agree that the degree is different, but the underlying psychology, the premise underlying and justifying this action is really no different.  You are every bit as dangerous to your fellow man as the SS officer who shot Jews on command and dumped them into a mass grave. I mean that. All of it.

If, on the other hand, you find, as do I, that this had been an unconscionable abuse of authority and power, I must ask: “What are you doing about it?” What are any of us doing about it?  You see, this is the real problem. I’m more than one-thousand miles remote from this taser incident, but I’m aware of it.  The people of South Central Ohio are aware of it. What are they doing about it?  Herein lies the problem: We all find excuses to remain uninvolved.  People, this is happening in America! This is happening in YOUR COUNTRY! This isn’t happening in some third-world S-hole, although given their preferences, the left will surely turn it into one.

My larger point here is that as Polly argues, we must not let our humanity be stolen from us, and we must be willing to make a stink. Beyond that, we must be willing to fight against this entire monstrosity. Our liberties don’t evaporate because there’s a virus, whether it’s extremely virulent, or spread only through intimate contact.  Our rights don’t get suspended because some tin-pot dictator-wannabe says so. The problem is that when all this finally ends, if we leave these people in place, they’ll be emboldened to do this to us again in the next emergency.  Some of them have grown to like this power they’ve managed to seize, and from our perspective, the problem is that in our willingness to comply for our safety and those of our loved-ones, we’ve too easily ceded too much ground, and too willingly watched as abuses of citizens goes on unabated.  I don’t understand how the school resource officer in the video above didn’t find himself surrounded by a bunch of citizens explaining to him that he’d better back off, or else.  I don’t understand it.  Where are the men, by the way?

Our society is collapsing in part because men have become neutered and indifferent; emasculated and impotent, morally much more than physically. I fear for our nation because now we live in a society in which tin-pot punks with official titles hand down orders and edicts, while ostensibly free men and women simply comply. What sort of people have we become?  What else will we accept when pressed?  Is there no limit to the indignities we will suffer on the say-so of some dimwit who mustered a majority of voters in some small county in an off-year election?  It’s time to reject all of this.  President Trump was right to say that we mustn’t let COVID19 dominate our lives.  He was right to lead from the front, rather than shout orders up from the Presidential bunker, like so many others. None of us get a second lifetime, and watching it bleed away in isolation offers no consolation. I’m done with the lock-down now. One way or the other, it’s over. Come what may. I will not be reduced to the sort of cringing loser who will surrender the right to console my aged mother, nor the sort of hapless mealy-mouth who helplessly watches a mother be assaulted by a power-hungry bureaucrat with a badge and a taser. It’s not happening. I hope my fellow Americans will join me in rejecting this “new normal” before it morphs into something more insidious. Those public officials who have handed down and enforced such orders must go, and the purge must begin today. What they’ve demonstrated is that they are too willing to abuse citizens on the basis of orders in pursuit of public policies that violate our constitutional rights, and that is a sin we cannot tolerate, and a treason against us we must not permit.

BOOM: How RBG’s Death Is Spoiling the Steal(video)

Sunday, September 27th, 2020

The Pre-Election Death of RBG Threatens the Democrat Plot

It was so simple. All the Democrats needed to do was to create a contested situation in the wake of the Presidential election. Their phony mail-in ballots as a vehicle for the steal was only one part of the plan.  The ultimate plan was to culminate with a showdown in the Supreme Court. Too many conservatives have falsely consider Chief Justice Roberts a safe vote, but the Democrats own him.  This is why he concocted a ruling on Obamacare that was legally farcical and logically absurd.  This is why he’s gone along with every farcical leftist position on ballots and the election this entire election season.  John Roberts is mortally compromised, so that a supposed 5-4 majority did not function as such, but instead became an effective 4-5 conservative minority on many of the most critical issues.  Examine the record.  Since 2011, anything involving significant questions where Democrat hegemony would be augmented, and he was the deciding vote,  it was passed right along by Chief Justice Roberts.  Whatever his actual political positions might be in a vacuum, we’ll never know, but what’s clear is that somebody has him by the throat.  If the 2020 election were to come down to a decision of the Supreme Court, have you any doubt where Roberts would fall?  The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg threw a monkey-wrench into all of this.  If President Trump is able to nominate and get Senate approval for another solid nominee, the dirty little plot of the Obama Clan will face serious obstacles.  It will cut off the Democrat and DC establishment’s last, best hope of stealing the election, and this is why, as both Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin have noted in the last three days, the Democrats have reversed their advocacy on mail-in balloting. Suddenly, after months of mail-in ballot advocacy, the Democrats have changed their tune.  Why the sudden change?  Listen closely, and Democrats will tell you their bad intentions.  It has everything to do with the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Limbaugh got closest to catching it completely, while Levin noted that Democrats have realized that because so many of their voters are “low information,” (to use a Limbaugh term,) they’ve realized they can’t rely upon their voters to successfully complete and mail back their ballots without risking massive ballot disqualification for various failures in filling out the forms.  While I have no doubt that this is true, the Democrats already knew that about their voter-base before they embarked on the mail-in ballot scam. Instead, what they have realized is that they probably will not be able to stop Trump’s nominee from being seated in time to weigh-in on any election-related Supreme Court decisions that their intended contested election might well necessitate.

Understand that this is what has begun to drive the left to change directions.  Roberts’ compromise will not be enough to subvert the Supreme Court decisions necessary to overturn the election in the case of a contested situation. This leaves us with a couple of problems, one of which is the necessity to swell conservatives to the polls during early voting and on election day. We must make our numbers an impenetrable fortress behind which to protect this presidency. Whether we are particular fans of Trump or not, the simple truth of this election is that we are confronted with a plot to overturn not just a single election, but also the whole American system of governance.  The DC establishment is now at the cusp of a vast exposure. Their collusion with powerful globalist oligarchs and communistic regimes is manifest, but more than this, their willingness to turn over the entire American system to a global order has become more plain.  Donald Trump is not now engaged in a mere battle for re-election in a fair election, nor even to prevent the defilement of the American system at the hands of conspirators, but instead to rescue the entire American constitutional order from a globalist revolution that threatens every person on the face of the Earth.

On its face, this sounds incredible, even farcical. To make such an assertion requires evidence. Obviously, the people involved aren’t exactly forthcoming about their intentions, but some of them are just foolish enough to make some of their motives plain. Senatory Cory Booker(D-NJ) went on record stating that if seated, newly nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett must recuse herself from all 2020 election-related cases. From NBC’s Meet the Press:


Ladies and gentlemen, the Democrats have tipped their hand.  This is all about the steal, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death has thrown a monkey-wrench right into the gearbox.  We’ve figured out their plot: De-legitimize the election results, contest them, and push it to the Supreme Court where they expected Chief Justice Roberts to hand down the decisive fifth vote in a deadly blow to the Trump presidency.  No person can say with certainty how any of the justices would vote, but with Roberts as the “swing vote” prior to the death of Ginsburg, their motive was clear, and this push to have Amy Coney Barrett commit to recusing herself from 2020 election-related decisions is the tell. They intended to use the court to steal the election from Donald Trump. Now that the composition of the court is changing, and they won’t have a reliable fifth vote for their agenda, they’re moving to a backup plan: Try to force Barrett to recuse herself from election-related cases, but failing that, they’re now scrambling to get their voters to cast ballots in person. Folks, this is the steal right before your eyes, and if you listen closely, the Democrats will always tell you what are their bad intentions. Always.

Rush Limbaugh’s Brilliant Suggestion and Why We Must Listen

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020

Another Nominee, Another Circus?

On Monday, the 21st of September, Rush Limbaugh suggested that Republicans in the US Senate should broom confirmation hearings in order to avoid another Bork/Thomas/Kavanaugh spectacle, in which Democrats use the opportunity of the hearings to wreck the nominee, either to stop them, or to damage them so that even once confirmed, the new justice will feel duress to rule in certain ways in order to avoid severe criticisms.  The other fundamental problem is the complete unfairness of demolishing a person, imputing all sorts of nefarious behaviors and character flaws without the least bit of evidence.  Rush suggested this was the way to avoid all of that.  President Trump retweeted a Hill piece discussing this suggestion:


On Tuesday, the discussion from callers to Limbaugh’s show came to be about why a hearing should go forward.  The theory they expressed was roughly that this would give the so-called “suburban women” a chance to see Democrats at their vile best.  While true, Limbaugh asked in response: If they haven’t seen it by now, what makes you think this would make any difference. Callers implied that the reason is because the nominee is likely to be a woman. For those of you inclined to agree with these callers, thinking that a female nominee’s mistreatment at the hands of Senate Democrats would damage Democrats, I have two words for you: Sarah Palin.

Yes, you can name any number of conservative or at least Republican women who were nominated to various positions in government who have been mistreated by Democrats. You can also list a large number of women who were destroyed by Democrats’ political ambitions, aims, and deceit.  Watching how Betsy DeVos has been treated gives you an inkling. Whatever I may think of her views on foreign policy, Condoleeza Rice has been repeatedly attacked by the Democrats.  The way the left goes after Melania Trump should serves as some clue to their despicable nature.  The manner in which Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick, and a long litany of women who Bill Clinton infamously abused to one degree or another should remind you how Democrats will treat relatively powerless women.  In point of fact, there’s no shortage of women who Democrats have gleefully accosted, when those women, either by inclination or circumstance, stood in the path of Democrats’ political aims.  Among all the women the Democrats sought most thoroughly to destroy, none fell under more unrelenting, vicious attacks than 2008 Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Governor Sarah Palin(R-AK.) Even since then, their attacks on Sarah Palin have never really relented, especially any time she ventures into even vaguely political territory.  Here was an accomplished woman who had genuinely reformed her state’s government, removing corruption, canceling stupid government programs, and enlarging the treasury of the State of Alaska.

She was a unique, genuine American character, a patriot, and a woman of many talents, but both her political inclination and her circumstance as a Republican Vice-Presidential nominee meant that the whole of the media, and all of the popular culture, never mind the political establishment of Washington DC would set out to destroy her. Even when she made speeches after it was clear she would not seek the Presidency in 2012, still the media vermin descended upon her like locusts.  The popular culture continued to mock her, and to this very day, there are people who believe she said “I can see Russia from my House.” This was, of course, a quote from Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live, in a spoof of what Gov. Palin actually said in an interview on ABC with Charles Gibson. Asked about Russia, she remarked:

“They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska”

To this day, half or more of the country believes she said “I can see Russia from my House.” This is the devastating nature of the popular culture, controlled by elitists from the coasts, who are able to propagandize the American people so effectively.

This was scarcely the only instance of their war against Sarah Palin. It went on and on, and they were not satisfied even after the McCain/Palin ticket went down to defeat.  They pursued her to Alaska where she continued in her gubernatorial capacity until the entire left-wing and DC establishment had made it impossible for her to continue. Using ridiculous legal filings, they harassed her from office, because she could not afford to fend off all of the insane legal goings-on against her.  She could not be permitted to merely go back to governing Alaska. That might lead to a day upon which she might rise up to run for President on her own.  That was unconscionable to the left, and therefore, her complete and utter destruction was mandatory.  I want to know what naive Republican or conservative believes that any nominee to the Supreme Court put forward by President Trump will be spared any of that.  I want to know what demon on our own side knows the sort of campaign of destruction that will be waged against the President’s nominee, but sees this as an opportunity to “expose the monstrous nature of the Democrats.” So we’re willing to throw a nominee onto the bonfire of the Democrats’ political vengeance machine in the hope that it will become a funeral pyre?  Are such people mad?  Are they willing to sacrifice another American to the Democrats’ endless campaign of personal destruction?  Why? Have we become so vile as the Democrats and the whole DC establishment that we are willing to subject yet another person to this demonic behavior?

Ladies and gentlemen, we will never get the sort of country we desire so long as we’re willing to go along with this sort of thing.  There is no requirement for hearings.  We already know how Democrats will treat the nominee.  We already know the sorts of lies and smears that will be levied against the nominee, and we already know its purpose: To either harass the nominee or the White House into a withdrawal of the nomination, or to so thoroughly damage the nominee or her legitimacy that she is permanently damaged in at least some part of the broader culture.  It’s beyond unfair.  It’s monstrous, and we must say so.  More to the point, the probable nominees in question have already been through recent hearings, and their background checks have been conducted repeatedly.  There’s no point to gin it up again just to give Democrats an opportunity to create a circus and a freak show.

I’m calling on my Senators, Cornyn and Cruz, to move to dispense with any hearings, and I strongly suggest you contact your Senators to do the same.  Rush is right: There is no purpose to these hearings except to give the Democrats an opportunity to demolish and/or denigrate a future Supreme Court justice. It’s time to clear our midst of the sort of people who think of this in terms of a supposed political advantage. We mustn’t submit to that sort of behavior, and we mustn’t suffer our fellow Americans to be the unjust target of such despicable attacks. Whomever the President nominates, let us have a straight up-or-down vote.  We have enough circuses.  There’s no need to do this to another American. To this day, I hold the media and establishment villains in the highest contempt for what they did to Sarah Palin, and to this very day, I’d leap at the chance to vote for her for President.

I believe in Justice. I cannot bear to watch the Democrats immolate another good person as yet one more sacrifice to the political demons they worship.

 

 

It’s Time to Fight Like Hell

Saturday, September 19th, 2020

We Must Fight Like Hell to Fill This Seat Now

Like so many of my conservative and “conservatarian” brethren, it’s not in our nature to ramp up for battle at the drop of a hat. We’re not wired that way, because by and large, we’re live-and-let-live sorts of people. It’s not that we shrink from fights, but that we hold our fire until it matters. Ladies and gentlemen, given this election cycle, the state of the union, and the recent events that now confront us, it is now clear that it very much matters.  It’s bad enough that the media has spent four years or more in collusion with the Democrats and the so-called “Deep State” trying their best to overturn the last election, or outright sabotaging President Trump’s efforts, which have been substantial, but now we are confronted with a vacancy on the Supreme Court going into a Presidential election. Worse, we have a number of DC establishment RINOs in the Senate with whom we must contend if we are to avoid squandering this vacancy (and any subsequent.) As I remarked in my quick post last night, there are immediate, practical reasons that the President should immediately nominate a replacement, but there are many more important reasons we must now rise, not only in support of this President’s re-election, but in full battle dress for the coming war.  Make no mistake: The next forty-six days and those following the election are a war. Our object must be to attempt to achieve full victory while preventing this political war from becoming a real war. It’s our last chance to save America. It’s not the last step, but it’s the biggest leap we must make. This is an all-hands-on-deck battle, and we must not fail.  For once, we must unite, come what may, and fight like Hell to defeat them.

It’s not unlike the cold war: We never came to all-out combat directly against the Soviet Union, but we engaged them in proxy wars, and there were hostile “incidents” that resulted in the deaths of Americans and Soviets.  Thankfully, our strength and determination along with the productive and technological might, backed by the spirit and devotion of Americans won out, but there were losses we must never forget. This battle will be waged at first with phone calls, faxes, emails, tweets, and other social media posts.  It will require protest marches, counter-protests, and a ground game the likes of which we’ve never waged before.  It will be waged in courts, but ultimately, it may be waged in the streets.  We must not fold.  We must be disciplined. We must recognize that the whole world will be watching for us either to over-react in intemperance, or to weaken and crack.  Ours is always a fine line, because the people who write the narratives about events are completely one-sided, and they will act even to lie, never mind exaggerate whatever we say and do.

Our goal is simple: We wish to restore America to a constitutional order, wherein all Americans enjoy the full measure of their liberties as guaranteed under the Bill of Rights.  To do this, however, we must wrest control of the courts and the Congress from the DC establishment.  The DC establishment consists not merely of Democrats, and not only also some Republicans, but also the vast and overwhelming majority of media and popular culture figures. The entire education establishment, much of the bureaucracy and the whole of the political consultancy and lobbying class is arrayed against us.  The only reason we’re still in this fight is because we, the people of the country, actually vastly outnumber them, when we can all muster for battle.  Too often, since we’re busy living our lives, providing for our families, running our businesses, and simply engaging in the art of being Americans, we too easily leave our agency idle, hoping others will stand and fight in our place.  It’s easy to understand: No person can perpetually stay at full battle posture. It’s simply not practical and frankly, none of us can have that energy in perpetuity.  That said, I am continuously amazed by how energetic our President remains despite all that is arrayed against him.  It’s time for us to bear that in mind, stand with him, and rise not only to his defense, but recognize that he’s been standing in the breach in our stead. Our stand is for our whole way of life, and we must make it now. Remember that while the rank-and-file of our antagonists don’t really understand the purpose of their fight, we know the values for which we stand, and that is our edge. We know what’s at stake.

Our immediate purposes must be these: We must see to it that President Trump is able to nominate a justice to the court.  In the short run, leaving the vacancy will serve as fuel for our adversaries.  They treat Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a cult figure, but we know the truth about her record as a justice on the Supreme Court, and her earlier record in the judiciary.  Nevertheless, they have so thoroughly propagandized our youth that they’ve succeeded in creating a widely-accepted albeit false collection of narratives about Ginsburg, and the Supreme Court generally. It’s time for us to shatter the myths. It’s time for us to tell the truth. We must put forward an argument that is logically and factually unassailable. I will start with one here:

It is already being said by Democrats and media, along with a couple of DC establishment RINOs, along with Joe Biden that “the American people must have a say in picking the replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.” The only answer to this that matters is:

The American people have had their say. In 2016, they selected the person who would be President from January 2017 through January 2021, knowing that President would have the authority throughout the entirety of that term to select and nominate persons to the federal judiciary, including the United States Supreme Court. In short, President Trump has been empowered by the American people, via constitutional process, to make this selection. Period! His term doesn’t end until January 2021. Until then, it is his pick to make, and it is up to the United States Senate to dispose of his nomination one way or the other.

This is why we must hold or expand our majority in the Senate in the coming election, but for now, we must rise up to put a boot in the backsides of any wayward Republicans. We must get on the phone, send the faxes, show up at their offices, and do whatever we must to will them to do their duty. This is our fight. This is our time to rise. We’ve watched the anarchists, ANTIFA, BLM, and the Democrat-Media Complex make wreckage of our country and obstruct our president. It’s time to fight like Hell because we have no choice. It’s our country, These are our lives and liberties. We must not relent.

 

 

 

 

A Color Revolution in America: How the Left Plans to Overthrow the United States

Friday, September 18th, 2020

Sabotaging a system with fraud in order to claim it had been fraudulent

Those who follow global politics will more readily understand this approach to overthrowing a government.  For those less well-versed, this is a primer on what you are seeing today in America, and why the particular sorts of things you’re seeing are happening.  None of it is accidental.  It’s not random.  The American system of government is slowly being overthrown and you’re to have no say in it.  Yes, George Soros is funding part of it, and behind the scenes, Barack Obama and those in his orbit are helping to direct it.  The first thing you need to know is the methodology, and what are the ultimate aims of this revolution.  Your voice is to be nullified.  All notions of self-governance are to be replaced by “rule of the experts.”  Experts in medicine, transportation, energy, sustainability, warfare, communications, propaganda, technology, environment, education and law will become your new masters.  Elections will be meaningless, because the superstate they create won’t need politicians except as a facade.  If all of this sounds a bit like a mix between 1984 and Atlas Shrugged, that’s because it is precisely that:  A communist super-state empowered to rule over every aspect of your lives, including your reproduction, your nutrition, your “career,” and most anything else you dare to imagine.  This is what these “visionaries” imagine, but if you think its aimed solely at the United States, you’re far too narrow-minded.  These people are the nuts who wish to rule the whole world.  In order to do so, they must get you to reject the old order, the revolution of 1776, and all that developed out of it.  To get you to go along, they have a plan, and that plan has been used repeatedly.  What they intend for you is a color revolution, and the time for that revolution is now.  They will use fraud and chaos to undermine our election or at least create that appearance, so that they can assert its illegitimacy. This will be their justification for revolution.

The basic model takes the form of massive demonstrations(and riots) around an election, particularly an election that does not come out the way the revolutionaries want. The election itself serves as the apparent catalyst for the unrest.  The real cause is the political aims, almost always left-oriented, of the revolutionary element.  The idea is to have a disputed election, in which either the outcome is uncertain, or there are claims of widespread fraud, or both.  The idea is to give an excuse for demonstrations and general political and social unrest so that there is a basis for the claim of legitimacy of the revolution.  Remember, one of the most important elements of any revolution is some sort of grievance claiming the illegitimacy of those in power, and the otherwise illegitimate claim to power of the revolutionaries.  If you wonder why even in 2016, the question was asked of Donald Trump: “Will you accept the outcome of the election,” you now understand at least the basic reason: They need a contested, disputed election. They need somebody to contest it. They need somebody to challenge its legitimacy. As you’ve seen, in the end, it turned out to be the Democrats and Hillary Clinton who questioned the legitimacy of the election.  So it will be in 2020, whatever the electoral outcome.  In point of fact, our electoral college system offers them an added method for challenging the election’s legitimacy.  As you saw in 2016, they will claim that the popular vote proves them the winner, but as we all know, we don’t elect our president through popular vote.  Nevertheless, due to the grotesque mis-education of our population in the public schools, there is this notion that “majority rule” should be the way.  As we’ve discussed ad nauseum, our electoral college system is perhaps the greatest instrument of long-term stability in our constitutional framework.

For a color revolution to succeed, it is that very stability they must overcome.  It doesn’t matter if the method for overcoming it involves massive fraud on the side of the revolutionaries. Since in many cases, they will have either a sympathetic or colluding news media, they will control the ability to direct the narrative.  They will control the ability to write the ‘rough draft” of recorded history.  In this way, the media is much more powerful than even our framers had envisioned.  They have the ability to make the news whatever they decide it should be.  Just as they’ve mostly succeeded in disappearing Dr. Li-Meng Yan from the public consciousness, or hidden the retraction of the Trump loser-sucker war dead hoax, they are able to make the news appear in any way they want.  If they tell you the election had been illegitimate, there will be no way to contradict the story.  Fox News isn’t going to tell you, just like they won’t let their guests or contributors tell you about George Soros’ role in funding the rioters or the various DAs who enable them. In case you missed it:

What form the color revolution will take is unknown, in the sense of particulars, but the general concept is clear. This is why Hillary Clinton, a long-time Soros puppet and conspirator, urged the Joe Biden not concede the election under any circumstance.  They will roll out their riot mobs, perhaps even in the lead-up to the election, as part of a voter suppression move.  Remember, these people do precisely those things of which they accuse their opponents.  It’s by design.  If they say “Republicans are trying to suppress the vote,” then you can know it’s a lie and that they are actively trying to suppress the vote. If they say “violent Tea Party protesters,” you can know the Tea Party protesters were not violent, but that they have mobs who are.  If they say there is “politicization of justice,” then you can know they are politicizing it. Whatever they accuse others of doing, you can know that they are actually the ones doing it.  It’s a strategy of disinformation, and even their cohort groups exhibit this behavior.  For example, the group using DARPA-created artificial intelligence, run by former General Stanley McCrystal, is called “Defeat Disinfo,” but the spreading of disinformation is precisely the aim of that group.

They have also worked to undermine military allegiance to their commander-in-chief. That was the whole purpose of the now-retracted The Atlantic hoax-story that spread like wildfire, as though it were planned, two weeks ago.  They have to undermine any institution that might stand by the constitution.  This has been the purpose of these phony groups of traitorous former officers who signed their letter to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  By contrast, what they are suppressing are the stories where military families signed a letter in support of President Trump. You will only learn of this in conservative publications, but nowhere in so-called “Mainstream” press.

All of this is being done in order to undermine the President in preparation for removing him forcibly from office if need be. They intend to create so much doubt and divisiveness around this election that the matter really is in doubt, particularly if Trump wins, and especially if they can show that he “lost the popular vote.” They will claim this entire election had been rigged and was corrupt, and this is why their phony polls continue to show the race within the margin of error.  It’s about creating doubt in as many minds as possible about the legitimacy of a Trump victory.  In the end, they are willing to use violence.  As others have said, they are willing to destroy the country in order to avoid accountability for their crimes.  It’s as bad as that.  They’re facing serious prison time, or worse, some of them, so that there is nothing they won’t do to avoid facing prosecution.  If Trump remains, legitimately or not, they know they’re apt to face the gallows, or at least a long stretch in a federal prison.  This includes people at the top in driving this revolution.

Here, Dan Bongino does a great job of explaining the coming color revolution. In fact, I would commend his entire series of podcasts this week to your viewing:

It’s all about de-legitimizing the whole system. It’s about an argument that no matter how the election ends, the system underpinning it is illegitimate, and doing everything they can to make it illegitimate.  Yesterdays’s decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is a perfect example.  The idea is to create wreckage in the system, and then use the resulting failures to say the system is illegitimate.  It’s like intentionally planting a fifty-third card in a deck, say an extra Ace of spades, so that when it comes up, you can claim the game had been rigged and cancel all bets.  It’s the methodology of thugs: They’re not willing to live by the rules, so they wish to claim the rules are faulty, and as evidence, they’re going to create a disaster within the rules.  That’s the plan. That’s what all of their media narratives about the notion that “we won’t know who wins on election night.” Look at what they’re doing.  Let nobody deter you from voting, but more importantly, get out there and vote, and take a neighbor, a friend, and anybody else you can convince to go.  The best chance we’ve got of defeating this is an overwhelming Trump win.  They’ll have a harder time making the claims of illegitimacy stick.  Otherwise, prepare for the nation to be under siege until they can bully their way into running it.

Civil War II: The Left’s Order of Battle

The War Is Against You

Over the summer, we’ve been watching in growing angst as our country is devolving.  None of this is coincidental, and none of it is random or purposeless.  These are the opening salvos in an attack on the republic.  What we’re witnessing is very much like the beginning of the rise of the confederacy of the pre-Civil War South, but with a difference: This new foe is employing all the tactics of the various statist revolutions we witnessed in the early twentieth century.  A few months ago, I told you about the rise of the “Woke Supremacists.” Nothing has changed, except that they have become more organized and more virulent.  These are not peaceful protests, conceived in benevolent motives, but coincidentally escalating into riots.  These are riots, with a veneer of peaceful demonstrations lashed to their front, both as a disguise and as a shield for the vile onslaught only superficially concealed behind them.  Bricks have been pre-positioned. Frozen water bottles are filled in backpacks. Crude pyrotechnic devices are employed.  Guns and knives are concealed beneath shirts and jackets, and the grins of stone-cold killers are concealed behind the anarchists’ masks.  What is their purpose?  What are they after?  Who is funding them?  How are they coordinating their actions?  What is the ultimate goal?  Ladies and gentlemen, these are the cannon fodder in the globalists’ revolution against you.  Like the first rebellions of the Civil War in 1861, this is the launch of a Civil War against the United States of America, these are their foot-soldiers, and they are following orders.  It’s not about an election, except as a means to an end.  Their war is against you, and they won’t be satisfied until you are crushed beneath their feet.

They’re too stupid and too foolish to do anything but follow orders.  When you look at the people who are rioting, you realize that most are just more than children.  As ever, the leftists driving this have decided to use the vigorous young as their battlefield meat-shields.  Too inexperienced to understand how they’ve been manipulated, or that they will be discarded as soon as their masters no longer require their services, they line up in harried, emotional state to stand for the cause of BLM and/or ANTIFA.  They actually believe they’re fighting fascism, these poor, stupid young fools, but to watch the vacant, unthinking looks of bewilderment when asked a simple question by on-the-ground reporters is genuinely frightening.  They spout chants, but they don’t know the meaning and it’s clear they haven’t considered the consequences.  Just like in the 1960s when the hard-core radicals used the average college students who’d become caught up in the moment, the masters of this revolt are using today’s youth. They’ve never heard of Kent State, and they have no idea what could happen to them if events go even slightly off the rails.

The hard-core phalanx behind them is composed largely of career criminals, many the beneficiaries of the COVID prison releases.  One begins to wonder how many of those government officials who ordered the releases knew precisely that they had been effectively filling the ranks of the revolutionary force.  Now we see that they are employing the tactics first described by other historical radicals, using fire to spread terror all along the West coast states.  Now they’ve taken to attempting(and in a few cases succeeding at) the assassination of police officers, sheriff’s deputies, and federal agents.  This too has historical precedent.  Stand-down orders to police forces in some jurisdictions have become common.  Tying the hands of the police in the enforcement of our basic criminal law has become the norm.  Soros-backed district attorneys won’t file charges, and these monsters are re-released to set more fires, incite more rioting, create more mayhem, and to rape, pillage, plunder, and demolish the areas in which they operate.

These people are receiving orders.  They’re using encrypted on-line applications that provide them a platform to text back and forth to coordinate their plans.  Applications like Telegram, but predominately Signal, are the chosen method for communicating so that their words will likely never be discovered, and therefore, their premeditation and coordination will always remain obscured.  Government cannot penetrate the encryption, at least not yet, so that they will never be discovered.  More importantly, their masters will evade discovery and detection.  This permits them the plausible deniability and stealth that otherwise “respected public officials” would need to conceal their involvement from an unsuspecting public.  Have you noticed that when the first little police-involved incident occurs, whatever the locality, a mob suddenly forms?  Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  All of these are rapid-reaction teams secreted within communities to exploit any incident, no matter how innocent the police had been, nor how obvious the criminality of the allegedly aggrieved party had been.

In the Northwest, particularly in Oregon and Washington, fires are starting all over the map, usually a short way off of a major highway or thoroughfare.  To be blunt, these fires aren’t “starting” in some spontaneous lightning strike, or as the result of some other relatively innocuous cause. They’re being ignited.  They’re being started by arsonists who are trying literally to stoke the fires of the coming Civil War II.  All of this is being coordinated from highly-placed, but as yet unidentified operators coordinating with the Democrat Party, but also with foreign operators whose huge wealth is being brought to bear in a war on the United States.

The United States is the last free country, mostly, anywhere in the world.  All the rest have fallen to some degree.  We’re the last nation that enjoys a fundamental right to keep and bear arms.  We’re the last nation in which free speech and religious expression are almost entirely protected.  The globalists must change this, because we are the last obstacle to the global slave-state they envision.  To do that, they must reduce us under varying forms of arbitrary governmental power.  That means arbitrary government orders of all sorts, restricting what we do, where we do it, and how we do it.  Sound familiar?

Then comes the following disturbing tidbit from the 25th of October, 2019:

Imagine that! Joe Biden was warning about our relative unpreparedness for a pandemic in October 2019.  Does anybody believe he’s got a Nostradamus-like gift of foresight, or is it something else? What better way to get the populace accustomed to arbitrary governmental exercises of power?  What better way to bargain airfares to ferry the thugs back and forth across the country?  Ask yourself, now that a defecting Chinese virologist has alleged that the COVID19 was created in a Chinese laboratory in Wuhan: COVID19 is real, and it’s bad, but was it naturally occurring, or did it have “help” getting loose in the US?  How did Joe Biden know in October 2019?  There have long been stories that COVID19 was released in October of last year, and the pandemic may have begun as early as October 6th.  Does anybody believe this is mere coincidence?  Is it possible that Joe Biden would ‘just happen’ to mention our preparedness for a pandemic that, unbeknown to the rest of us, had already begun to spread from its source?  After all, in late 2019, there was a table-top exercise called Event201 in which a Coronavirus kills 65 million people.  Players included members of the last presidential administration.  While this exercise may have been purely coincidental, what’s odd is the timing.

Who’s driving this?  I can’t be certain, but I do know that the various district attorneys that George Soros had funded in their elections are playing a distinct role.  It’s also clear that certain mayors and governors are involved.  Given the apparent coordination, it’s fairly certain that the Biden/Harris campaign is involved, but I don’t think Joe Biden is running the show, and I don’t think Kamala Harris is very capable in this regard either.  We already know that the Clinton/Obama mobsters are somehow involved, and it’s no secret that Barack Obama has been running around the globe, either trailing or leading(or both) President Trump to virtually every locale to which the President flies.  It’s also clear that Obama has been operating some sort of shadow government, using people secreted within the government, who are still serving as holdovers in the Trump administration.  They infect most of the executive departments, particularly the law enforcement and intelligence agencies, along with the Department of State.

Some have asked what the motive driving all of this could be. I will tell you that it’s what it always is: The pursuit of naked political power, which means the power to compel and coerce you to their will.  For different segments of the people who will bring you Civil War II, there are differing and sometimes competitive variations on that theme.  The Washington DC establishment, controlled by the globalists, is only too happy to aid and abet this revolution. They will do anything to maintain their lock on power.  The street-level thugs simply want a paycheck and meal.  They’re being financially supported, and since mayhem is what they do best, it comes natural to them.  This sort of thuggery is their natural state.  The globalists driving this want a one-world government, and the control over all of it. Everything. Every where.  The less obvious segment that is staying mostly hidden are the field managers, those who directly control and deploy the street-level thugs. These are committed communists who believe they are going to get the kind of communist cesspool they desire, and expect to be elevated above their peers.  The intellectuals upon whom all of these committed communists rely are the most insulated, but they will also be among the first the field managers will later dispose.  The media is the last piece of this wheel of doom,  They think they will be insulated and treated better since they will tell the stories their masters demand in order to propagandize the people they expect to control. What they don’t understand is that once the communists have succeeded, the so-called “journalists” won’t be needed at all.  How many “journalists” work in Kim Jung Un’s slave-pit? In Mao’s? In Pol Pot’s? Once in control, the propaganda changes its aim, from the poor enslaved people, to the external world. It’s not as though they will any remaining need to “convince” anybody in the United States.

The order of battle, from the bottom up, beginning with the cannon-fodder, looks like this: Organized teams of garden-variety malcontents who have been convinced by their college professors or peers that they’re “changing the world.” These are the entirely disposable throngs of delusional twits who believe the lie of socialism, but absent the safety of the mob, wouldn’t be able to muster the fortitude to carry the trash to the curb.  They have no life experience of note, have never actually struggled for much of anything, and most will have come from middle-class to upper middle-class environments in which foolish parents who loved them had catered to their every whim.  These numbskulls actually have the most to lose if they succeed, but they’re too ignorant to know better. Their job is to be that “mostly peaceful” face, and act as a shield for the real thugs behind them. They are mostly in their early twenties.

The thugs are frequently longterm ne’er-do-wells, in and out of jail or prison, and often into their thirties or forties. Many are hardened, habitual criminals, who have been involved in various forms of mayhem for a long time. Many will have been let out of jail as part of the COVID 19 releases. These are the thugs who will actually attack police and others, and they’ve perfected their tactics, using improvised weapons but also carrying illegal firearms(either weapons that are illegal, or that because of their prior records, are illegal for them to possess.) These are the people who’ve been flown around the country, because they’re hard-core, experienced rioters and thugs.  They make for maximum mayhem, and are willing to commit any crime on the spur of the moment. These people are capable of murder, and they are the chief beneficiaries of the Soros district attorneys’ policies of letting lesser criminals go. Many of them are eligible for arrest as probation violators simply by their participation, but they’re hardened and don’t much care one way or the other.  Threats of arrest pose no deterrence for these thugs.

The field controllers are another case. These are apparatchiks of the first order. Their job is to be the on-scene or regional command for the various groups of thugs and cannon-fodder. They coordinate resources, and make sure that the various elements are deployed as needed.  These people are mostly invisible, but they’re constantly on their cellular devices, directing traffic. Their job is to make sure that elements fill in behind other elements, and to rotate people in and out of the front of the skirmishes.  These people virtually never participate directly in the riots.  Theirs is a job of coordination, and making sure the riot continues.  They don’t necessarily dictate the overall strategy, but they are empowered to shift people around within a particular scene as is needed to maximize their impact.  There may be several of these working a particular riot, and they will spend much of their time coordinating among themselves.

The regional controllers are above that. They’re responsible for making sure people are moved in and out of regions as needed to fulfill larger mission goals. For instance, these would be the people who make sure that if two dozen hardcore rioters are needed for the RNC in Washington, they’ll be tasked with shifting people and making sure the right people move. They’ll make sure that field controllers provide overall status reports, and they are also the folks who coordinate with legal teams to get arrested rioters released when possible.

As we go up the chain, things begin to get murky.  We know that there is a funding mechanism, and part of it runs right through the middle of the Democrat party and all its allied agitator groups. What becomes more difficult here is figuring out exactly who is pulling the strings. At this level, all communications are encrypted, or they’re otherwise disguised in plain sight. Twitter accounts are used for broadcasts using coded language.

The political hacks who collude with all this don’t know very many details. It’s all about plausible deniability. Politicians don’t need or want the details, because if this all goes badly, somehow, they want to be able to wash their hands of it and walk away.  They know what the globalists are doing, and they’re happy to facilitate it and capitalize on it. They have more to lose than almost anybody else, inasmuch as they’re more motivated to get rid of Donald Trump than almost anybody. Theirs are the dirty secrets that would wreck their careers. Theirs are the corruptions that would expose them to legal, never mind political catastrophe.

Like the politicians, the globalist funders of this civil war are deeply corrupt people.  Their interests are financial, but also egotistical.  They believe only they are qualified to direct your lives, and only they are smart enough to know how government(s) should operate.  These truly are fascists, inasmuch as they believe that governments should be controlled in coordination with large global corporate interests.  Their corporations, even if founded in America, have no loyalty to the United States.  They see themselves as bigger than any government, and ultimately, the people who drive government.  They want a one-world government they can easily control, complying only with a single set of laws they manage to put into place.  These people have aims that ultimately call for the reduction of the world’s population, and leave them in charge of the world’s assets.

It’s also critical to remember that this is about the coming election, and also all subsequent elections.  Their intent is to create a nationwide version of California, whereby there may be a few Republicans here or there, but they intend to rapidly nullify them and make of the country a one-party state. They even believe in the destruction of individual states, instead preferring to re-order things into regional governments. They envision ridding us even of municipal governments, simply making them departments within the larger regional or national government.  Theirs is the notion of consolidation, and they have no room for our quaint American views on federalism or local control.  They know that the people can most easily control the governments closest to home, so they intend to strip all of that away.  Sure, we may even have elections, but those elections will be impotent exercises in which the choice is between one statist dictator-in-waiting and the other dictator-to-be.  They have no interest in negotiations, or compromise.  They want power, and they intend to take it, whether you consent to be governed by them or not.

This Civil War had begun in 2009 with the ascension of Barack Obama to the presidency.  The rise of the Tea Party had been the first movement in opposition to it. Since then, it’s been a war between series of left-wing groups that acted as surrogates to create the bottom-up pressure all leftist movements need.  First, we had the occupiers of Wall Street.  BLM rose up, but after an associate assassinated police officers in Dallas, they took a huge PR hit.  Then we had the outlandish rise of the pink hat brigades.  After that, we have a series of others, including the rise of Antifa and other associated anarchists’ groups, and now they’re all banding together.

Before this election season is over, we will witness every manner of attack on this President, the country at large, and the American people. The Democrats have a long history of enmity to this country, beginning with the first US Civil War.  They spawned the KKK.  They instigated one series of radical, divisive attacks on our republic after the next. Now, they see their moment.  Now, they see a divided America they can attack openly and with little consequence.  Ladies and gentlemen, be prepared to defend your homes, your families, your lives, and your republic. It very well may come to that, as the subversive elements in the United States carry out their attacks, and the Democrats carry out their political and legal attacks on the republic and the polity of our nation in general.  The two deputies shot in the face in Los Angeles County are just the beginning.  It’s going to get worse, and it’s going to become more frequent. They want power, all of them, each for their peculiar reasons, but they’re willing to settle any squabbles among them after they’ve subjugated the American people.  It’s the way communists always operate. It’s what they do.

 

Voting to Save America

One Last Chance

In 2016, I made no secret of the fact that I wasn’t an ardent Donald Trump fan. I admitted that I liked the fact that he seemed to fight like Hell, and wouldn’t back down. Unfortunately, I also thought he wouldn’t make a very good president because I’d bought the popular lie that he was basically an unprincipled New York liberal in conservative clothing. Reluctantly, I decided to vote for him because I had previously voted for Romney in 2012, despite similar misgivings about his fake “severe conservatism.” I knew I couldn’t support Hillary, but more than that, I couldn’t vote third party because quite honestly, it was more important to make a defensive vote, just as I had in 2012. In 2008, I supported John McCain despite similar misgivings, but also because I was gambling that due to his age, he might not serve out the term, and we’d instead find ourselves with President Palin, a prospect I still view wistfully. She’s another true fighter, and while not a doctrinaire conservative, she was much more appealing politically to me than the top of the ticket on which she ran. All of this firmly in mind, I decided in 2016 to vote for Donald Trump, because, I admitted, Donald Rumsfeld had been right: “You go to war with the Army you have,”.and not necessarily the ideal fighting force you might imagine for a particular engagement, because the world doesn’t present us with “ideal” choices or options very often.  I voted for Donald Trump expecting a string of disappointments that would make me regret my vote, but ladies and gentlemen, I have never been more wrong about a political choice in my life. It’s not that there haven’t been disappointments, but I must say that Donald Trump is, to date, turning out to be the best and greatest President during my lifetime. Yes, better even than Ronald Reagan.

Different? Yes. Could he still turn into a terrible disappointment? If he spends too much time listening to his daughter on some of her claptrap, I’m afraid I’ll be inclined to dissent. I don’t believe it’s the tax-payers’ job to fund child-care. I don’t think there should be paid family leave for Federal employees, or anybody else. Having a family is your choice, and thus the burdens associated with it should be entirely your own. If you can negotiate for it with an employer, that’s one thing. If an employer decides to offer it to attract employees, that’s fine, but as a mandate by government? Hell no! As a hand-out benefit to Federal employees who will be considered “essential” anytime there’s a government-mandated quarantine, while business owners are told to close their doors and shut down their lives, but be forced to pay for it all? Not a chance! I also disagree with him on the question of “pre-existing conditions,” and although as popular as his position may be even among a majority of voters, again, I do not believe we should expect insurers to cover houses at full value after they’ve already started to burn.  It’s a ludicrous proposition, whoever makes it, and I’ll maintain that to my dying day. These are the sorts of things where a conservative like me will always cringe on Trump’s positions that stray far afield from conservatism.

There are issues on which it is clear I will never consider Trump to be conservative, or conservative enough for my liking, but there are others in which I think Donald Trump has made a logical and reasonable case where conservatism had gone astray.  One of those issues is in the broad area of foreign entanglements and military deployments and engagements.  Like many conservatives, I had over time fallen away from Reagan’s basic view toward the Bush view. The question has been: Which is truly the conservative position? It had been the Bushes and Clintons who re-ordered the use of our military from a defensive institution focused on a narrowly-formed set of ideas about what comprise America’s vital national interests to a broader set that had begun to encompass ideas like “democracy-building” and “humanitarian missions.” After all, the catastrophe in Somalia was launched under George HW Bush.  The intrusions into the Balkans of the 1990s were an outgrowth of the same theory, and so were so many of the excursions since the outset of the current century.  Rather than focusing on the defense of the US, we had begun to get roped into various quagmires.  Even our attacks into Afghanistan, started as a response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, slowly mutated into something else: An attempt to convert a primitive, tribalistic culture into something more modern and responsive to contemporary ideals of society and governance. It is in this latter attempt that we have failed. Rather than having our military focus solely on the mission of vanquishing an enemy, we had begun to “nation-build” a primitive wasteland.

In Libya, Moammar Gaddafi was a miserable human scumbag, and he kept a forcible lid on various factions, but we armed his antagonists and wondered why we wound up with al-Qaeda running the show. This fanciful approach to foreign policy, with this asinine idea that we could somehow convert the whole of the primitive world to our general way of thinking led to the whole “Arab spring,” which in truth had led to an Arab catastrophe. Trump could see this from a mile away, and he was right to re-center our foreign policy and defense stature back to the traditional conservative view. We have no business being involved in nation-building. To the degree we become engaged with enemies abroad, it should consist of overwhelming force to wipe them out, removing the threat to the United States, and then some sort of staged withdrawal, hoping to leave a stable country behind, but unwilling to remain in perpetuity to do any “democracy-building.”

What made the first Gulf War relatively successful was that we went in, we ejected Saddam from Kuwait, and we demolished his ability to make war beyond his immediate borders. Then, and for years after, we simply contained him and his forces. We did not take him out on our first trip because it was not part of our multi-lateral mission and mandate. This had been another failing of the Bush doctrine: We would seek to do everything within a coalition of nations, seeking buy-in from other UN or NATO nations. Their cooperation is always appreciated, but it’s entirely unnecessary. The United States doesn’t need the permission of anybody to pursue its defense/security interests.  One of the great things about Trump’s foreign policy has been his plainly evident willingness to go without “allies” and also to tell them to get bent when they, as they so often do, forsake their treaty commitments to the United States.

In the 1980s, at the height of the Cold War, we carried the burdens of funding NATO to a large extent, but at least the member nations like Germany made an attempt to meet their fiscal obligations. Since the premature reunification of Germany, we’d let the NATO members skate on their annual contributions. They made partial payments, and in a few cases, symbolic, token payments. The American people continued to fund it all. Donald Trump has made strong moves to end that practice, and for the first time, Germany and others are making payments to the maintenance of NATO at more substantial levels.

This is something I believe had become a blind spot for conservatives. So accustomed to carrying those burdens, we let the Bushes, Clinton, and Obama continue to send our money, unmatched, to the defense of a continental superpower that had been increasingly adversarial in issues of trade and culture and law. Trump ended this procedure. He challenged it by prompting the fundamental question: Do we still need NATO, and if we do, how much should we be paying for its maintenance? As a man who spent his youth in Europe, in field exercises all over Germany and manning the defense of the West, for the first time, I actually wondered: Is it time to bring our soldiers home? This is a question two decades late in arriving. Partly, I believe, we had become accustomed to the arrangement – an extension of the human tendency to maintain the status quo even in the face of underlying change – but in other ways, we’d forgotten the plot: We had been there to stabilize post-war Europe and to repel the Soviet Bloc, but the Soviets were gone, and some of the Soviet Bloc was now on our side. While we had reduced our troops in Europe, we still maintained a substantial engagement there. Why? Trump is the first President in over twenty years to rightly ask that question, and I am thankful for that change.

President Trump arrived in Washington DC truly as an outsider. Despite outward appearances, the Democrat and the Republican establishment fear and hate him.  This is because he created problems for their status quo also.  Since he was an outsider, they feared that he might open too many closets, and look under too many rugs.  Slowly, but lately more rapidly, he’s begun the process of cleaning things up, and they intend to oust him by any means necessary.

One of the things for which I appreciate President Trump most is that he has been a stalwart defender of veterans, the US military, the police and other first-responders. This is important to me, because as a veteran, I have known too well the long train of abuses and neglect to which our veterans have long been subjected.  I know how poorly our first-responders are treated in county, city, and state budgets.  I know that our military has always been the first line item to be slashed, and the last to be restored.  These ridiculous stories, now falsified, about Trump looking with disdain upon our war dead were always obviously false.

There are many, many issues in which Donald Trump has surprised me, pleasantly, but there’s one area in which he’s done more to improve the country than in perhaps any other area: The news. President Trump has finally exposed that which I had long believed, but could not prove. You may not have noticed it before, or if you had, you might not have grasped fully its significance.

The media is essentially a one-party affair. More than this, however, it’s a highly focused media. It revolves around the New York, Washington DC axis. It has branches on the West coast, and it has smaller extensions elsewhere, but in the main, the way America is portrayed is with a projected mindset and ethos of what you see in Washington DC, as if that had been the whole of the country.  Ladies and gentlemen, thankfully, mercifully, this is not the case.  America is not Washington DC, or New York, or Chicago or Los Angeles. America is not like those places. Most Americans have little in common with the so-called “leaders” in those places, who have built empires of graft and corruption, and these demons view the American people, their homes, their properties, and even their jobs as spoils to be won and lost in a perpetual war for power.  The media vultures are part of this war, and many bureaucrats in the upper echelons of government play in this same game.  All of them collude against the American people. All of them are at war with you, and therefore, with Donald Trump.

What Donald Trump has uncovered, if you care to notice it, is a vast governmentally-focused system of graft, corruption, favoritism, profiteering, and in not a few cases, treason. How many Congressmen and Senators use their Intelligence Committee briefings to make buy and sell decisions in their stock portfolios? We do not yet know the whole number, but we can get a clue from the entire COVID19 disclosures. Diane Feinstein’s husband is now under investigation, and Richard Burr is under investigation for using their access to information to make buys or dump stocks after Intelligence Committee briefings. Note that these are the Chairman(Burr) and the ranking member(Feinstein.) I’ve told you many times: This is a bi-partisan swamp, and a large number on both sides of the aisle are flat-out crooks. Do you think Pelosi and McConnell don’t know about all this? Hell, they lead it in their respective houses of Congress. While kicking this one or that one out of Congress may solve the immediate problem with that individual, it doesn’t solve the broad problem.  Trump knows how this works, and he’s slowly working his way to expose it.  This is why there are “NeverTrumpers” all over Washington DC. All of the phony posturing about “principle” and so on is simply that: Posturing.

I have been happy to see President Trump say that we should not tear down monuments, because we must learn from our history… All of it. The good, the bad, the ugly: American children must be taught about all of it, so that they can understand the greatness of our country, the historic struggles of her people, and the epic advancement in the human condition our system of law and justice has created.  I am happy that we have a president who does not fold on such critical cultural issues. He does not cave-in to the prevailing popular notions in our media and so-called “popular culture” because he knows it doesn’t represent the whole of the people, but only a tiny, vocal, protected, entitled ruling class that does not represent the views and convictions of the many millions of people all across this country’s length and breadth. He knows the so-called “convention wisdom” is a thin veneer of opinion, spread out across the entire media to give it the appearance of a legion, when in truth its a comparative squad when stood alongside the whole body of the American people. We may have had other Presidents who knew that, but most of them feared the people would discover it. Donald Trump thunders about it in his rallies so that all Americans will know the truth.  Twitter isn’t reality.  The check-marked blue-ribbons there are mostly fake people, in the sense that their followings are not organic, and their basis for verification is to become “influencers” for the ruling class.  Yes, of course there are genuine people, like Mark Levin, and Dan Bongino, and a number of other conservatives, but nobody’s giving them instant followings made up of tens or hundreds of thousands of bots or dummy accounts. Donald Trump knows all of this, and it’s high time we learned it. He’s trying to teach us how to act like winners because we are winners, and because we outnumber our adversaries if only we would stiffen up our spines and fight.

Donald Trump is making a wreckage of the so-called “Deep State.” They tried, and still they try, to take him out. There is no lie they won’t tell, and no caper too big to attempt.  Even now, a number of senior military officers are gaming how they will take the President out of office in January. They’re telegraphing it all, but they too will be exposed before much longer.  We have former generals leading disinformation campaigns, like Stanley McCrystal, using technology taken from DARPA! Incredibly, they’ve named the group “Defeat Disinfo” in an Orwellian twist.  Despite all that is arrayed against him, Donald Trump still fights. Why? Think of it. He’s fantastically wealthy? Being President is really a financial loser for him. It’s all downside. He doesn’t need power. The man owns his very own Boeing 757. Why then does he persist in the battle? Some would say “vanity,” but is that true? After all, if he were motivated by vanity alone, he’d have capitulated to the swamp just to get along, and to get them to talk nicely about him.  He’s not making any friends in the swamp, so why does he fight on?  Ladies and gentlemen, I believe Donald Trump is motivated by a deep and abiding love for the country in which he’s been able to make so much of himself.  I think he sees that he’s nearing the end of a long and successful life, and that if this country is to remain for his children and grandchildren all that it has been for him, he will have to see to it, because he knows the swamp has been wrecking it.

There can be no “perfect” presidents, any more than there can be a perfect man. Still, despite my various policy disagreements with Donald Trump, the one thing he and I share, despite our vastly different stations in life, is our abiding love of our country.  America is still a great place, despite all the left’s attempts to destroy it. Even as they scurry around the West coast, lighting fires to add to the misery of those states, they cannot overcome the greatness of America or the overwhelming goodness of her people. Because the worst of us must not be permitted to ruin the country or defeat the best of us, in just more than seven weeks, I will cast my vote happily to re-elect Donald Trump, not holding my nose, nor as a mere matter of self-defense, but because I believe he will fight like Hell to make America great again, again.  I believe he will do what he says, and not spend a second term selling us out, or giving over the administration to people who will make wreckage of all his earlier efforts.  That was Reagan’s biggest flaw, because by the middle of his second term, it was all Bushies running the show, and they made a wreck of it with their tax plans and their amnesty and all the rest of their betrayals. I don’t think Donald Trump will be inclined to let that happen in his second term, but more, I think he intends to restore justice in our country. If he accomplishes only that, he will have been a great president, but if he carries out all his promises, he will have been the greatest president of them all. And we will have bought ourselves a chance to save America, not for a term, but for a generation. After that, the rest will be up to us.

Ladies and gentlemen, the plot to wreck our country, steal an election, overthrow a President, and evade justice is well under way. If you would stand against all of that, I urge you in the strongest possible terms to vote in this election with the urgency of the blindfolded lady, laying aside her scales, and swinging with finality her judgment in the sword. We must have Justice. The treasons have been too many.  The betrayals have been too common. The corruptions have been too frequent.  Our own government is in insurrection against us and our president. Voting for Donald Trump on or before November 3rd, 2020, is the only way to put it right. For all of us.

 

 

 

 

Non Compos Mentis: The Un-Candidate

Friday, September 11th, 2020

Can he find his way?

Let’s be blunt. Let’s cut through the nonsense and simply state what is clear to every sound mind which has been judging the 2020 Presidential Campaign: Joe Biden is not fit to be President of the United States.  He’s diminished in mental capacity, and he’s sliding downward toward the lower bounds of legal competence.  I say this with no particular excitement, since this is a condition that may come to plague many of us who survive to advanced age.  It isn’t a pleasant thing.  It isn’t to be taken lightly, and for the sake of the Republic, it is a condition that must not be ignored.  We can all make fun of #DroolingJoe and talk about a man clearly into his dotage, but the truth is that we’re talking about a man who seeks the highest office in the land.  Does Biden even understand the seriousness any longer?  Does he comprehend the critical details that may be told him as he assesses national security issues?  Is he even capable, if ever he was, of recognizing and integrating the facts that will confront him should he obtain that high perch in our government?  I think the answer is clear, and I don’t think the whole body of the American people know the degree to which they’re being misled about his unfitness.  Joe Biden isn’t merely unfit to be President of the United States, but he’s unfit even to be a candidate for that office.  Others have aptly suggested that Joe Biden is being used as a Trojan Horse for the advancement of radical leftist policies, and while this is true, it’s only possible because Biden’s unfitness makes of him an empty vessel, easily used for nefarious purposes.  Joe Biden’s unfitness makes of him something worse: Biden is the Un-candidate.

Biden’s candidacy is defined mostly by what it isn’t.  In the main, the left tells you, “he isn’t Donald Trump.” His is a campaign of negation, not even of Donald Trump’s actual record, but merely the straw-man record erected by political flacks and consultants for Joe Biden to carry out a tightly-scripted series of unquestioned, unchallenged attacks.  Nobody is permitted to ask Biden any actual, unscripted, unrehearsed questions.  When he holds a press conference, his answers are already loaded on the teleprompter, meaning the questions are known, and the questioners cannot get a follow-up question because that would cause Biden to deviate from his script.  Without his script, Biden is a babbling, angry old man, confused and disoriented in a substantially disturbed way, and it’s quite evident that he’s incapable of higher-order thinking, particularly under pressure or in anything like a rapid-fire sort of circumstance.  A President already has a staff of people to juggle the myriad of balls that are inevitably flying through the air, but a candidate for President must juggle even more.  Biden isn’t capable of following a single ball on his own, as his inability even to stick to the carefully scripted teleprompter scroll clearly indicates.  He’s left to haplessly mouth phrases that still ring in his memory, as he struggles to wrestle free from his rapidly thickening mental fog. It’s not that he simply can’t get the words out, but that he has no words left to expel. What dribbles out instead, sometimes in fits and starts, is a garbled mush of phrases, piled one atop the next, like a babbling idiot who has lost the plot.

His handlers know this all too well. They’re trying to hold him together like a bag of soup, squeezed and shaped into the likeness of a presidential candidate, but always distorting wherever the bag is poorly supported.  He can’t maintain his shape, any more than you can sculpt liquid water, and what this means to his handlers is that they must constantly scramble to keep his increasingly muddled form into a moving image where the distortions are partially hidden by the motion.  He’s not capable of an actual debate against Donald Trump, or even against a well-schooled eighth-grader.  He’s unable. Simply put, he’s not up to the job.  Here’s a leftist critic, earlier in the primary season, with an assessment of a Biden interview:

That interview was back in April. Biden’s condition is worsening. This sample is from August 31st, when he become obviously confused reading the teleprompter, and completely loses the plot:

The mainstream media is doing all it can to hide this from you, but these episodes of confusion and mental disorientation have become increasingly common. It’s not just that we’re confronted with a man who has obvious mental decline – we all get there if we live long enough – but that we’re watching a man who can’t keep it together for short-term campaign events.  It’s actually sad, but my sympathies for Joe’s declining mental condition don’t permit me to ignore a couple of important things:

  • Joe Biden is not fit to be President, or Senator, or Dog Catcher. He’s not capable of campaigning for the job, never mind doing it.
  • The people around Joe, including family, MUST be aware of this – so why would they do this to Joe in his waning days?
  • The people in Joe’s entourage are clearly exploiting Joe. How miserable must it be to be used as political cannon fodder?
  • Since Joe is so clearly an emptying vessel, what will his handlers fill him with?

On that last question, we’re already seeing the answer. One approach to successfully, convincingly repeating audacious lies is to be oblivious to the fact that one is liying. Joe Biden is the perfect vessel for bald-faced lies, because he’s only being asked to repeat them with conviction. He may not be fully aware of the truth, one way or the other, at least not in the sense we would understand it.  In the last few days, he’s accused Trump of lying about the seriousness of COVID19 #WuFlu, despite the fact that Biden himself called Trump’s China travel ban in response to the pandemic an overreaction and evidence of xenophobia back in February. In fact, this is the trend of the entire Biden-Harris campaign in the weeks since the Republican convention. It had been clear to all observers that the DNC was a dud, but that the RNC was a spectacularly successful event. Since then, the lies have been non-stop, and the contrived media attacks have been coming in like waves pounding a beach like cyclonic storm surges.

This may be the biggest secret to the un-candidacy of Joe Biden: The whole of the media is coordinating an endless series of nonsensical, easily disproven lies, or “pseudo-events,” as Mark Levin has most recently begun to label them… but there is no there, there.  Not once.  Not even a little bit.  Even the Atlantic’s fraudulent editor is now admitting the “loser-sucker” story of last week may in fact be false, despite a whole holiday weekend of headlines blaring “Confirmed…” Biden’s candidacy is a vehicle for demeaning and attacking President Trump, but it is not a real candidacy advocating the policies of a would-be President. To the degree the Biden campaign even discusses policy, it’s always couched in criticisms of Trump and Republicans, but never offers a substantive advocacy of their own ideas.  All of it is a negation.  It’s not the advancement of ideas, but the plain nullification of them.  Worse, because the media is predominately sympathetic to Biden’s general political party, and because they see him as the sole available vehicle for advancing their position, they don’t talk about his actual policies, which are primarily warmed-over Bernie Sanders re-treads.

The Biden campaign is nothing but a series of negations and disguises.  First, they wish to conceal from your eyes the plain unfitness of Joe Biden.  Failing that, they wish to concoct failures of Donald Trump that really hadn’t been, and when all else fails, they simply lie about it.  The media is, in the main, almost indistinguishable from the Democrat party and the Biden campaign.  For all intents and purposes, they are one organ, functioning seamlessly from end to end.  Joe Biden clearly isn’t running this. He’s being run. Kamala Harris isn’t capable of this level of planning.  Who is running their campaign?  What dark forces stand behind Joe Biden?  Who provides the scripts for his teleprompters?  Who provides the permissible questions to so-called “reporters?”  This entire campaign is a vacuum.  There’s no competent candidate.  There’s no new ideas.  There’s no guiding philosophy, or even an espoused coherent governing intent.  There’s nothing.  It’s as though they’re play-acting their way through the campaign, knowing they cannot win, but stubbornly heaving dung at the wall hoping to make something stick.  The Biden campaign can’t raise a crowd more than a few dozen.  Hell, in some instances, more Trump supporters show up at Biden events than do actual Biden supporters.  There must be some other purpose, some other underlying motive.  What are they waiting for?  It’s as though they know Biden will not be their candidate, and what Biden is doing is to simply fill time until…

Somebody steps in to replace him?

I maintain that the Biden campaign is part of a larger subterfuge.  Whether it is eventually eclipsed by some other candidate who rides in to rescue the Democrats, time will tell, but there is something dreadfully wrong with the Biden campaign.  It’s empty.  Its only purpose seems to be to soften-up the opposition.  It’s like Patton’s phantom invasion force being assembled in England for a supposed attack against Calais, while all the time, the real force is being assembled elsewhere for an attack on Normandy.  It’s all piss and wind. To take Biden’s candidacy seriously may be to fall for the enemy’s feint.  It’s simply too vacuous.  If this is the entire sum and total of the Democrat’s candidacy, they are well and truly beaten.  Biden isn’t fit.  He isn’t competent.  He’s barely there at all. His is the un-candidacy: Of, by and for the incompetent.  What’s worse: they know it. Does Joe?

 

 

 

 

The Plot to Steal the 2020 Presidential Election

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020

She Will Have Her Revenge

We’ve known all along the COVID19 #WuFlu pandemic was being used as a political tool to drive Donald Trump from office.  We knew the economic shutdown, most intense in so-called “Blue States,” was being used as a means to drive down his support among moderates.  From the beginning of the year, with the falsified, corrupt, wholly partisan impeachment debacle, 2020 and everything throughout the year would be leveraged to destroy the Trump administration and drive President Trump from office.  When the riots broke out over George Floyd, and they rapidly spread to other cities, it was obvious they were being fomented and driven by political operators intent upon seeing Trump overthrown at the polls in November. Only once Democrats saw their own polls sliding off a cliff after three months of quietly giving their tacit support to the rioters, did we finally see a sudden wave of Democrats “condemning the violence” but incredibly, blaming it on Donald Trump!  It’s as though they believe if they tell a lie long enough, they will have it believed. Too often, this tactic has worked on so-called “low information voters” who don’t pay attention to politics until within weeks of an election. Finally, a week ago, however, Hillary Clinton tipped the Democrats’ hand. Now we know how they intend to steal the election, and while we were right to guess that the mail-in ballots would play a part, I think most of us had no idea what form it would take. Now it’s clear: They’re saying we won’t know the outcome of the election on election night, because the Democrats won’t be done stealing it until some days, weeks, or months later.

Hillary tipped their hand, though she speaks in code to the media:

President Trump had known it all along. His complaint about the mail-in ballots had been that they would be overwhelmed by fraud. He’s right, and the Supreme Court’s role in unseating Trump will not go unnoticed on this site.  John Roberts, joining with the majority, to permit the mail-in fraud was the final nail in the Republicans’ coffin. The whole swamp is out to get him, in fact, but only the Democrats and a few hands-full of Pierre Delecto-types on the Republican side are willing to openly admit their hatred of Donald Trump. It isn’t anything that he’s done, so much, as what they fear he will do. They fear exposure, and they fear the prosecutions that will follow.  Trump the outsider has laid bare more swampy corruption than the most obtuse conspiracy theorist had dared dream.  There’s more yet to expose, from #Obamagate and the treason ongoing, to the thorough sell-out of American public officials to the Chinese Communist Party. There are ties to sexual abuse rings, and while that is the most salacious material in the offing, the most harmful to the broadest swath of America has been the betrayal of US security interests to the Chi-Comms.  There can be no doubt that life and death are at stake, because real treason has been committed against the US by elected officials, from lowly local officials all the way up the chain to former Presidents.

That’s quite an accusation, but all of the basic evidence is there, right before your eyes, if only you will see it.  Much of the worst treason has been uncovered already by various acts of declassification.  Page, Strozk, Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Yates, Lynch, Biden, Obama and a laundry list of others constitutes a real cabal to commit offenses against the United States Constitution, acting in the capacity of enemies of the State.  There’s no shortage of supporting characters, in Congress, and also in the Judiciary. What do you suppose this extraordinary action by District Judge Sullivan and the rogue’s gallery of appellate level judges is all about in relation to the Flynn case?  This is all about delaying exposure until after the election, an election they are actively and passively conspiring to steal. After all, we’ve known for some time that Biden has retained the services of some 600 lawyers for the post-election ballot fight he’ll wage.

Rush Limbaugh pointed out on Tuesday that these fiends intend to keep Biden from conceding the election, because on election night, it will look like a Trump blow-out.  Instead, Biden’s team of lawyers will follow Hillary’s advice and he will not concede, and they will go to work counting fake ballots.

You might ask at this point why they would do such a thing.  You might wonder in perfect incredulity at the mere suggestion. What you don’t understand is that these demons know with a foreboding finality that their very lives are on the line.

Treason is a capital offense.  Even avoiding that charge, their ill-gotten fortunes built on careers of graft and corruption will be destroyed, seized, and remitted to the treasury.  Large-scale donors who have thrown in with this gang are also on the line. Do you have any doubt what names like Zuckerberg and Bezos have at stake?  GatesPichai? Bloomberg? Romney? Pelosi? Schiff? Barack Hussein Obama and his master, George Soros?

These people are desperate. It’s only a matter of time before some thug or gang of thugs working on their behalf makes an attack on the President directly. That may be their final option, if they find they’ve failed to steal the election. Whatever the outcome, they are going to find a way to power, or they’re going to die trying. You see, while people like Hillary want their measure of pure revenge, it’s also true that this is an act of legal self-defense.  These people, many of them, are going to jail when all is said and done, should Trump be re-elected.  They will lose everything, perhaps even their lives, should all plausible charges be pursued, and this is a scandal much broader than two-bit, run-of-the-mill, billion-dollar DC establishment corruption. There is high treason here, and there are crimes against children to be pursued, and there are billions of donated dollars from the good-natured, charitable Americans who contributed to all sorts of causes because they thought they could help people afflicted with diseases, pestilence, earthquakes, floods, and all the other things Americans send their cash to help with around the globe. The betrayals are many. The various conspiracies are innumerable.

Donald Trump may win in a landslide on election day if we all get out there and do our civic duty, dragging as many friends and relatives to the polls with us as we can. Don’t be surprised if they try to pull some sort of terroristic operation on or near election day, as a way to deter us from the polls. They may even try to attack the electrical grid, or networks, or whatever else they think they can do to foul and confound the vote.  These people aren’t just angry control-freaks seeking to run your lives: They’re monsters, and they intend to get away with crimes they’ve long ago committed. At this point, they’re well beyond “in for a penny, in for a pound” thinking. The worst of their deeds are already done or in progress. They can scarcely lengthen or worsen the penalties they might face should Trump be re-elected. There’s basically nothing they will not permit themselves to do. Extortion of federal judges? Check! Extortion even of Supreme Court justice(s)? Check! Media collaborators? Check! On the hook with all the worst global vermin? Check! Treason against the Union? You betcha! These people have far more to lose by a Trump re-election than anything additional that may be heaped upon them in their attempt to prevent it. This is for all the marbles, ladies and gentlemen. All of them.

#BLM, #Antifa, and the Occupiers are all the same people. They’re the funded, paid, foot-soldiers and mercenaries of this plot. They’ve infiltrated everything, from the public schools and universities to the local government and the media. They’re in the bureaucracy and outside of it, waiting for their turns to create mayhem on command.

On election day, and in the sixty-two days from now until then, we must do all we can to defeat them. We have no choice. If Trump goes down, so does our republic, and with it, any future of which you might have dreamed for you and your children, and all the generations beyond. The choice is finally with you: Supine and helpless, or activist and ferocious, like a momma bear defending her cubs?  No, I’ve not forgotten. Neither should you. Fight, damn it, Americans, FIGHT!

An Open Letter to the President from an Arch-Bishop You Must Read

Monday, June 8th, 2020

The Courage to Speak Out Against Evil

Most of my long-time readers will remember that I was raised to be a Catholic. Many of the causes of my discontent with the church are subjects dealing with the conduct of the church, its hierarchy, the behavior(s) of some of those who would claim to lead it, and the various cover-ups that have become the signature of an historic religious institution that has lost its way. With that in mind, I want you to read this letter from Arch-Bishop Carlo Maria Viganò. He’s been an agent of reform in the church, attempting to right some of the very wrongs about which I and so many others have complained. In this case, he offers to give you a glimpse into the nature of the devils against which he wars, and he makes clear that he is a natural ally to President Trump, to patriotic Americans, and indeed all people of good will everywhere. I don’t ordinarily discuss religion on this site because it is so divisive, but I think upon reading this letter, all Americans of good will can recognize the good in men where we find it, whatever our religious beliefs(or even lack thereof.) It’s in this spirit that I offer you an amazing, astonishing open letter to President Trump, first made available late Saturday. I think you will profit from the time spent reading it, as the Arch-Bishop concludes with a prayer in his war against the Invisible Enemy:

#ObamaGate: We Need the Whole Truth

Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

Sleight of Hand

On Sunday, an opinion editorial appeared in the Boston Herald that began to address the truth. Unfortunately, like most things in media, the tendency is either to conceal the whole truth, or to understate the matter. This was true of the Herald op-ed because on the one hand, it offered us a bogey-man, a true dirt-bag, evil-doer of the most despicable sort in the person of US Representative Adam Schiff(D-CA.)  The Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee was served-up on a silver platter. The Herald op-ed explained all the well-known dirt on Schiff, but the true travesty of the Herald piece is what it scandalously does not disclose: Schiff was a bit player in this scheme. They’re offering you Schiff so that you’ll be satisfied with his nearly bald scalp, and in the process, forget all about the other seditious, treasonous actors in this saga.  They hope you’ll forget about the Republicans who were complicit in this plot, and most of all, they don’t explain the motive for the whole thing. No, ladies and gentlemen, we can’t let them slide through with this nonsense.  It’s time for the whole plot to become known.  It’s far worse than the admonition of Schiff pretends, and the scandal reaches far into the upper echelons of both parties. The corruption is unforgivable. So is the treason. It’s time to open our eyes to the full depth and breadth of this treachery.  It’s more than Adam Schiff.  It’s more than even a corrupt and disgraceful Democrat Party.  It’s time we begin to unmask all of them, top to bottom, Democrat and Republican.

Every word the Herald Op-Ed says about Adam Schiff is true.  In fact, one could argue that but for the necessity of brevity, they might have gone into greater detail as to the nature of the sedition of this reprehensible dirt-bag.  One of the ways the Herald falls short is in pretending that Schiff largely acted alone, or at least in failing to mention that there had been far more at stake in this whole treasonous escapade than the Herald was willing to identify.  Adam Schiff is a bit player, a man with neither the skill nor the intelligence to cook-up a plot of the sort we have witnessed. He’s a slimy wretch, naturally, but Schiff has bosses, and those bosses coordinated his activities, along with those of the equally detestable Jerry Nadler(D-NY) and Maxine Waters(D-CA,) among a host of other Democrat house members.  These people painted Donald Trump as a traitor, despite that their own acts in so doing were all aimed at overthrowing a duly elected President of the United States by disguising the plot as an impeachment of a treasonous man.  The conspirators in this plot were many, and it included some Republicans.  Do you want to guess what the real “insurance policy” had been?

In early 2017, just as then Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes(R-CA) had begun his investigation into what he saw as significant irregularities, he found himself under the cloud of a contrived House Ethics Investigation.  Speaker Ryan set Nunes down as Chairman, putting Trey Gowdy(R?-SC) into the spot. The hearings didn’t accomplish much, because in the end, no subpoenas were issued.  This is why Nunes was taken down as Chairman.  This is why Gowdy was inserted as Chairman. Nunes would have loudly and publicly pushed for subpoenas, (and in fact, he still did, but removed from the Chairmanship, he couldn’t get the requisite press to lean on Speaker Ryan.)  You want to know who the insurance policy was in 2017?  The Democrats had several, and most of them were secreted within the Republican Party leadership. This is why the Herald happily offers-up Adam Schiff, but fails to mention the conduct of Paul Ryan(R?-WI.) Listen to Trey Gowdy back-pedal on his previous position during an interview on Tucker Carlson’s show last week:

Ooops. Gowdy suddenly got visibly nervous and seemed shaken by Carlson’s questions. “Insurance policy” We’ve been wondering what that was. What if that was not a “what” but a “who.” Don’t kid yourself. There are any number of Republicans who continue to work against President Trump.  Consider that McConnell has appointed famous Trump-hater Marco Rubio to head the Intelligence Committee.

As pod-caster and Fox News contributor Dan Bongino has so often repeated, there are a number of Republicans in Washington DC who aren’t really Republicans, but there are NO Democrats in Washington DC who aren’t really Democrats.  It’s part of the scam.  It’s part of how, even when we’ve had Republican majorities in either or both Houses of Congress, or even Republicans in the White House, over the last forty years, they’ve gotten precious little accomplished, but managed to sell-out to the Democrats at every opportunity.  There are many more, and a large number of them “unexpectedly retired” from Congress in 2018, clearing the way for the Democrat majority that would impeach Donald Trump. Some of them are now even entertaining a return, since they think the coast is clear. After all, betraying Republican voters just once clearly isn’t enough. Watch closely for Republicans who abandoned ship in 2018 to attempt a return in 2020 or 2022.

The Herald piece also doesn’t broach the subject of senior-ranking Democrats who were involved in this coup attempt. For instance, it was Hillary Clinton who retained the services of Fusion GPS to go out and get dirt, even if wholly invented, on the then GOP presumptive nominee.  At the time, strictly speaking, Clinton was not in government, although many of her staffers and hangers-on still littered the halls of the State Department, the Justice Department, and every other department of the federal government, including even the National Institute of Health, and many others.  The Herald neglects this fact, leaving us to think solely about Adam Schiff.

In the same way, the presumptive 2020 Democrat nominee is likewise omitted. Joe Biden is deeply enmeshed in the who scandal, particularly the larger scandal about which the media, including the Herald, refuse to touch, even tangentially. The thing they must hide from you, and indeed from the whole world, is that Barack Hussein Obama, then president of the United States, was engaged in using the foreign policy, particularly the foreign aid funds, as a sort of personal piggy-bank and graft machine.  This is why the whole Schiff-Russia-Collusion narrative was invented. This is what they’re hiding from the American people to this very day, and the failure to report this, even at this late date, is why when papers like the Herald regale you with the tales of despicable behavior by the lowly Adam Schiff, you should recall that he’s a small matter in the larger scheme. He’s a tool.  Barack Obama was the mechanic, and with him, Hillary and their pack of detestable, seditious traitors.  They had turned the whole of the US foreign policy into a money-laundering operation, the pinnacle of which had been the “Iran Deal,” or “JCPOA,” as it is more formally known.  Tens of billions of dollars went missing.  Marie Yovanovitch has been revealed as one of the on-scene go-betweens in Ukraine. This scandal is about something larger than pure party politics.  High-ranking people risked sedition and treason to cover it up.

Ladies and gentlemen, you might take some solace in the outing of Adam Schiff, but the truth is that you’ve known for a long while that he was a ruthless dirt-bag. His scalp should not assuage your rage at what has been done (and what they’re still trying to do,) to your constitutional republic.  Do you really think the continued, extend blue-state shutdowns are really about a virus?  Do you believe even the handful of red-state governors who are still slow-walking the opening aren’t part of this?

(See the sidebar below.)

Last Friday, Dan Bongino had one of his best podcasts in the history of his show. What he did was to point out something critical, that people like this op-ed in the Herald and others in publications like the Washington Post, while finally rightly critical of Schiff, have failed almost predictably to point out. General Mike Flynn’s call with Russian Ambassador Kislyak wasn’t unmasked. It was never masked to begin with.  Barack Obama, exercising a little-known option of the FISA law, simply directed Attorney General Loretta Lynch to certify the necessity of monitoring the call.  It was transcribed directly, and not masked, as had been the assumption.

Listen to Dan’s excellent show of last Friday here:

His follow-up show from Monday can be found here.

The point of all of this is that Barack Obama is at the heart of this issue, and he not only knew, but he led the effort, and he directed it, and he’s been involved in continuing to direct it since he’s left the presidency. Now is not the time for half-measures or half-truths. We need full justice. We won’t get to anything like full justice until we recognize that this is not simply a story about some corrupt high-ranking government department heads. This is the story about a completely corrupt President and then former President working to overthrow his successor in order to preserve his freedom and his ill-gotten wealth. Barack Obama is guilty, and we have now a growing body of evidence that proves it.

What makes all of this more despicable is the degree to which some Republicans in Washington DC are participating in the cover-up. We’re in a war for our constitutional republic, but while no shots are being fired, we must be ever-mindful of the fact that they’re not playing around. These people are desperate to conceal their global money-laundering scam.

Think again. You see, I posted a response on Disqus essentially laying out the above, though in abbreviated form. There are much more harshly-worded response regarding Adam Schiff’s behavior alongside the op-ed, but there’s more to this. For some reason, my response remains in pending, without explanation. Would you like me to explain it? Did any of the other posts mention the Republican role in this treason? Here’s my response. Judge for yourself:

A Comment Too Hot to Handle…

Other comments discussing all parts of Obama’s involvement and the involvement of other Democrat players are discussed as some length comments. How is it possible that when somebody attempts to point out the Republican involvement in this scandal, the response is left in “pending” indefinitely? How is it that a remark that goes to the motive behind Schiff’s scam is censored?  Think carefully. As of the date of this article’s publication, the comment above has now been pending for more than two days as hundreds of other comments have been approved. You be the judge.

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.

Mourning for America

Saturday, July 13th, 2019

Mourning for America

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted regularly, and I’d like to thank my loyal readers who check in occasionally. I’ve been busy at the paying job, and busy on the farm. That probably explains much of my absence, but the truth is that there is more to it than that. I’m like many other American conservatives who look around and wonder where their country has gone.  It’s dying. I can’t pretend that I feel positive about anything.  Watching the Trump administration struggle against the legions of fifth-column deep-staters secreted within the administration is simply torture.  At this rate, even if President Trump manages to win re-election, it seems as though it would avail us little more than a postponement.  The thing I had always feared is now demonstrably true: The left has so thoroughly embedded their sick ideology in all parts of America that we are watching out own children become the tools of our destruction.  Look at Google, a company I now consider to be a criminally seditious enterprise, and realize that for at least half a generation, they’ve been the source of such “knowledge” your school-aged children have been fed.  Your country is being re-populated with people who are either ambivalent toward American culture and the ideology that built the country, or in too many cases, overtly hostile to this nation and all the principles that had made it the envy of the world.  Ladies and gentlemen, I am convinced no longer of a future for the great republic to which I had swore an oath.  It’s dying, and if it goes but a few steps further, what we will experience is the final mourning for America.  I’m doing my mourning now, while there is time to remember the true value of that for which we must yet fight.

The left doesn’t care if they will burn it all down. Destruction doesn’t bother them, and in fact, it is their singular goal.  You and I have worked our whole lives long to build and create; to invent and innovate; to repair and renew the American dream and the American nation.  They denounce it all.  Their university professors are monstrous villains left over from the turmoil of the 1960s.  In the 1970s, they plotted against America(must watch!).  They plotted its diminution and demolition.  The whole time since, most of us went back to sleep thinking they had been repelled.  That was our version of falling for the notion that the devil didn’t exist.  They’ve never stopped.  They never paused.   While we went back to living our lives, they took over most aspects of the culture and the economy.  They took over education from stem to stern.  They own the media and big tech.  They own the establishment of BOTH PARTIES in Washington DC.  If you don’t think so, maybe you should let Paul Ryan tell you. He’s as indirect as ever, but the truth is revealed by his contempt. More, it was recently revealed what he thought of Trump, and in truth, Trump supporters, but Donald Trump had his own thoughts on the matter.

The throngs of illegal hordes at our borders are the foot soldiers for their overthrow of our nation.  Do you understand?  They’re supplanting us by migration and occupation.  They’re stealing our country and our culture.  We have at the moment the only politician who has tried to stop this overthrow of the American Republic, from his seat behind the Resolute Desk.  It’s fair to say that every President since at least January 1989 has been engaged in or committed to this overthrow.  Reagan was tricked into it with the 1986 amnesty deal.  All of this time, and the wreckage of our culture goes on unabated.

Working couples work their fingers to the bone, limit their procreation for the simple sake of economics, while all the takers live on the takings from their labors, raising an army of opponents to their own existence. It’s everywhere.  The welfare state, the Immigration and Naturalization (Hart-Celler)Act of 1965 has delivered the fruits it had been intended to bear: The American people and their distinct American culture are being systematically replaced by foreign nationals who no longer bother themselves about assimilation, and barely concern themselves with legality.  Of course they don’t follow our laws.  They’re here to destroy them.  They’re here to destroy your world. Think of Saruman’s legion of Orcs in the Two Towers. They were brought to the walls of Helms Deep not to subjugate a people into slavery, but to erase them from existence.  In this plot, however, many of these foot soldiers don’t even know that’s the purpose for which they’ve been assembled. Most of their individual motives are natural enough, but it is the motives of their masters with which we must concern ourselves.

Look around! President Donald Trump tried.  He did.  I don’t know that he or anybody else has the capacity to defeat them.  The so-called “deep state” is still trying to unseat him! They’re still trying to undermine him at every turn.  I know that like me, many of you undergo a daily emotional bender, like a drunk careening emotionally from curb to curb, between a glimmer of hope here or there as he fights back to the betrayals that come one right after the next, threatening to topple his administration.  We have federal judges engaged in this treason.  We have officers of our law enforcement and intelligence agencies in on the plot.  We’ve even had alleged “allies” who attempted to assist the coup d’etat while they carry out similar atrocities against their own citizens.  All of Western civilization is under attack, and like you, I go from despair to fury, while my wife calls our member of Congress and our two Senators daily.  I write emails.  I contribute to every cause I think will help.  Even there, we are too often betrayed.  The NRA is dead, for instance, and they will never get another dime from me, not even accidentally.  Instead, I am a member of and send extra money to GOA, and while I’m not Jewish, I am now a member of JPFO.  Wherever I can, I support groups that are real advocates of the right to keep and bear arms.  The NRA is to gun rights as Paul Ryan is to conservatism.  Still, many Americans contribute to the NRA out of habit rather than due to their institutional efficacy.

As I’ve explained elsewhere, when it comes to social media, I’m moving away from the biased, tired, burdensome platforms like Facebook and Twitter to better platforms like Parler and Gab and Minds. Even now, the tyrants at Apple are trying to squelch some of these new platforms by denying them access to their app store.

Only occasionally, we see glimmers of hope, even if it’s a simple display of truth in the face of pure idiocy:

The sad part is that Tom Homan is required to explain this to the blithering idiot. These people are attacking our country, the media is almost entirely in collusion with them, and unless President Trump pulls a rabbit out of his hat, I think we’ve already lost the republic.  I think it’s every bit as bad as that, as our friends and neighbors fire off their 4th of July fireworks in what seems increasingly like a memorial to a dead republic.

2020 is apt to be 1860 all over again.  We will either defeat them and put them on the ropes, or we will be faced with an all-out catastrophe that leads inexorably to the second American Civil War.  It’s astonishing and painful to think of it, but every election is one more opportunity to delay it, to forestall it, to prevent it.  In the mean time, I urge my fellow patriots to two courses that are in truth a single course: Prepare and fight. Fight and prepare.  Get your home and hearth in order for the worst possible events.  As you do, wherever you can, carry out the political fight knowing that to fail in politics is to resort to war.  Carry out your political pursuits with the fervor of those who know the truth of the only ugly alternative, opposed to the simple minds who blindly follow not knowing they are the intended cannon fodder for other peoples’ revolution. While you carry out the political battle, continue to prepare for the real one that our republic’s enemies are hoping to incite.  I will be talking about the kind of preparations you can make. I’ll be shifting the focus here a little. This may end in the ugliest of ways, and while we should fight like Hell to avoid such a thing, we must nevertheless be prepared for it, and be able to conduct it as necessary.  I really don’t wish to mourn for my country, but it may come to that, and if so, let it not be said that I hadn’t done all I could to prevent it. Prepare my friends, because it’s as bad as that. Fight with all you can on the political front while politics may still prevail, because time really is as short as that.

Turning the Court on its Head

Thursday, July 11th, 2019

Supreme Scum

Antonon Scalia would spit on John Roberts’ grave if their places were reversed, but then, so John Roberts has done, many times.  Chief Justice John Roberts has taken part in the defiling of the United States Constitution. I consider his acts as the Chief Justice to be those of a usurper. I consider his acts to be treasonous. John Roberts has defecated on the Constitution. You might ask how, but by now, the method should be obvious: Pretending that an authority he does not deny the executive possesses is open to his judgments about the motives for the exercise of that authority is a legal abomination.  John Roberts isn’t a justice. He doesn’t know the meaning of the word.  John Roberts is a dictator in a black robe, a member of a theocracy the power of which is a judicial oligarchy best described by Mark Levin in his book Men in Black. Worse, the things Roberts has now countenanced under the alleged purview of “justice” have essentially wrecked the moral authority of the very institution he’d been empowered to administer.  He’s despicable.  There is no way for him to redeem his performance.  There is no way for him to undo the damage he has done but to immediately resign his seat on the bench.  John Roberts’ actions in this and other cases have destroyed the court’s last claim to legitimacy. Marbury v. Madison was bad precedent, and this is its ultimate debacle.

More, this judicial dirt-bag may have taken part in a plot to unseat or prevent the seating of the current president of the United States.  He appoints the members of the FISC(Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court) who oversee and ultimately issue FISA warrants.  It now seems clear that there may have been misconduct by members of the FISC in issuing some of the warrants, but more importantly, all of the FISC judges involved in the potential malfeasance were appointed to those positions by Chief Justice Roberts.

The central matter causing the President to seek a work-around for the Census question on citizenship is a perverse ruling in which Roberts indicated that the Commerce Department might well have the authority to put this question [back] onto the Census, but that they hadn’t explained their reasoning for so doing.  This is akin to demanding that it be explained why you spend your money on things for which you clearly have every legal authority to expend it.  It’s a legal apostasy.

It has been rumored that he is compromised. Whether this is the case, or he is independently malevolent, it is obvious that Chief Justice Roberts must be removed from the high court.  Since we have an entirely partisan House of Representatives, it would be they who would need to impeach him, and they’re not inclined to act in any way that might even tangentially permit Trump to appoint another Supreme Court Justice.  More than this, however, it seems quite plain that Roberts has been doing the bidding of Obama, Pelosi, and Schumer all along, anyway, so there’s no way Pelosi is going to move to impeach him.  No, we will have to elect a new Congress, and we will need to insist that he be impeached.

John Roberts is a counter-revolutionary scum, seeking to subvert our constitution. There is no point for people to talk about the legitimacy of this court. So long as the likes of John Roberts is among its members, its legitimacy is moribund, if not dead.  People may follow the law as a matter of duty a little longer, but Roberts is piling the kindling that could ignite with but the most insignificant spark.  Mark Levin is this very moment commenting upon the fact that people are now incensed about the direction of the nation and the dire circumstance in which we now find ourselves. He’s right: We cannot pretend we hadn’t been warned. This is now a real crisis, and those of us who have seen it coming have been ignored until it may now be too late to undo it.

I think Trump should ignore the court and do it anyway. We need to give him the House back.

 

Proud to be an American!(Video)

President Trump hosted a rousing Independence Day celebration on the Mall in Washington DC on Thursday, the 4th of July 2019.  Complete with the Army Band, and Choir, this was an awesome display of our reverence for our National heritage and our pride in all that has gone into making this the greatest nation in the history of our world. You can watch a video replay here:

FISA Corruption Bombshell: The Most Important 10 Minutes of Video this Week

Thursday, April 25th, 2019

It’s about to get real…

I’m not going to spend too much time prefacing this video.  On Wednesday, substituting for Laura Ingraham on her 10pm Eastern “Ingraham Angle” show, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee spoke with guests Rudy Guliani, Joe diGenova, and Robert Ray.  The most important part of this video is everything Joe DiGenova had to say, and you should pay particular attention to what he says near the end about Admiral Mike Rogers. This is stunning, and what it suggests is that there is big trouble for several Obama Administration officials. Watch this video:

If what Joe diGenova asserts here holds up, and he’s got a great record for accuracy on these things, then it’s about to “get real” for some of Obama’s flunkies.  So much for Obama’s phony claims of having an administration untarnished by scandals. (Assuming you forget the laundry list of them, from Fast and Furious to the IRS/TEA Party scandal, to Benghazi, to etc…) The simple fact here is that the spying was probably used against Romney in 2012 too, making the recent behavior of that freshman senator all the more peculiar.  Does he know he was being screwed?  Did they blackmail him?  It’s hard to know, but diGenova clearly describes this scandal as stretching back more than four years before the 2016 election.  That means at least going back through the 2012 election, perhaps all the way to the Benghazi attack time-frame of 11 September 2012.

The more we learn, the more we come to find that the Obama administration is full of corruption, and if what diGenova claims here holds up, then the next two months are going to bring into the light all sorts of infamy.  It’s about time.

We Must Not Let Anything Go

Wednesday, April 10th, 2019

Time to Face the Music

I realize that there’s a sentiment in Washington DC that now that the whole Trump-Russia-Collusion hoax has been exposed as such, we conservatives and Trump supporters ought to just make nice with the Democrats and “let it go” for the sake of comity and bi-partisanship. That probably makes a great deal of sense to people who live and thrive in the swamp.  It probably seems reasonable to them.  Last evening, watching a few minutes of Tucker Carlson, he had Mollie Hemingway on and she mentioned that there might be some laws that would need to be re-written to prevent all of this from happening again.  I looked at my wife, an expression of stunned incredulity on my face, matched by a similar expression on hers, and we both exclaimed “re-write some laws?” Per the norm, I was somewhat more animated, but I then muted the television and went on a mini-rant about the reasons why all of the denizens of the swamp must be evicted. Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t care what talking heads in the swamp may think about it: There must be prosecutions and convictions of the guilty, followed by swift sentencing at the appropriate level, to whatever level it may rise. Screw “letting it go!” We mustn’t let anything go, and we mustn’t let the swamp-rats make it all go away, as it seems they are intent upon doing. There must be consequences, and they must be as severe as the law permits. Simply put, it’s time for the real conspirators to face the music.

Mollie Hemingway is a fantastic writer for the Federalist, and in most all cases, I urge readers to check out her regular articles.  Tucker Carlson on FoxNews can be entertaining, but at times, it’s very frustrating to watch his show because he provides a platform to such outlandishly foolish characters, and I’m fairly certain it’s intended to press all of a conservative’s hot-buttons.  He succeeds quite frequently, at least where I’m concerned.  In this case, however, I don’t think that was the intention.  The two of them seemed to be acknowledging that there was indeed a serious problem in our government and the weaponization of its intelligence and investigative agencies,  but both seemed satisfied that it would be addressed sufficiently that it never happens again.  Hemingway seemed to want a more thorough reckoning, but to suggest that a simple re-write of some statutes would suffice is absurd to me.  I don’t know if it’s because I’m sensitive to the tendencies of the swamp of DC to make conservatives go wobbly, or if it’s because I’ve become adept at judging when we’re about to have one put-over on us by the DC Uni-party, but it smelled of swamp-gas to me, certainly where Tucker was concerned.  Queue the video below:

Again, while some may be satisfied if only we re-write some laws to make sure this never happens again, but the law already forbids the weaponization of our law enforcement and intelligence agencies, and conspiracy to commit treason is already covered under our existing laws.  While we might re-write some of the FISA law, and that might limit the extent to which that particular class of abuses might occur, there are already many clear-cut laws that make much of what occurred in this instance an unmitigated attack on our entire constitutional system.  One can find many statutes that apply, so I’m not sure why “re-writing law” is necessary to the sort of reckoning that justice in this case demands.

It’s really a fairly simple thing, from my point of view.  People who we’ve entrusted with incredible power over the affairs of our nation decided to abuse that power in a way that is well beyond corrupt.  It’s clearly treasonous, and while people like Brennan, Clapper, Comey, Lynch, McCabe, and others will continue to attempt to downplay or gloss-over what it is that they had done, it’s not satisfactory that we permit this to be dropped.  There’s also the very real possibility that the previous President was directly involved in this effort, and if so, that’s a conspiracy to high treason that originated in the highest office in the land.  While many will not permit this notion to be discussed, if there was treason here, and it surely seems there had been, we must be prepared to charge that offense and upon conviction, hand out its most terrible sentences, whomever the guilty may be.

It’s clear that at least for the moment, Attorney General Barr seems to get it.  In Congressional testimony yesterday, he made it clear that there was spying on the Trump administration, and that he intends to investigate it:

I certainly hope that AG Barr thoroughly investigates the matter, and while I still have some reservations about his swampy tendencies of the past, they’ve not yet surfaced in his current tenure as our nation’s Attorney General.  People in Washington DC don’t understand why it’s such a big deal, but I think it’s worth explaining what it means to me, out here in flyover country, that the elites who carried out the fraud and treason be punished.

Most of us get up each day and go about the process of providing for our families, earning a living, staying out of unnecessary entanglements with trouble, and obeying the law of the land, all while maintaining a certain reverence for the rule of law we’ve been raised to expect from our government, and the adherence to it that we expect from our elected and appointed officials. How many of you does that describe? Perhaps a few of you have gone on to retire after a lifetime of the honorable pursuits described above. The point is that we obey the law, we respect the law, and to an extent not common in most modern societies, we revere the law.  That means that for most of us, most of the time, we recognize the significance of what has been done in the case of the conspiracy to overthrow Donald Trump, and we recognize it as treason.  It doesn’t much matter what party we may be in, but what does matter is that we cherish our constitutional system, and we know that if Donald Trump can be treated in this way, a billionaire candidate, and then a duly elected President of the United States, then we average Americans out here in flyover country are in serious danger from the runaway government in Washington DC that has essentially decided to overthrow the rules we have set for it.  President Trump clearly sees it this way too, as seen in his brief statement to the press on Wednesday morning:

Treason indeed!  It’s time to investigate, prosecute, and punish the convicted upon a guilty finding, to the extent permitted under the law, and the more lofty the office, the more severe must be the punishment.  Only then is there any chance that this will be prevented from repeating in the future, or worse, being extended down to all we citizens who merely live our lives as honorably and honestly as we know to do, and who cherish the liberties with which we have been blessed.  More than that, we require a reckoning for those who have wasted our time, money, and opportunities.  We need a reckoning for those who have effectively demolished the first half of the presidency of Donald Trump.  McCain screwed us with his thumbs-down on the Obama-care repeal, and by helping to create the Trump/Russia-Collusion Hoax, he helped to make sure that we would not be in a position to advance our agenda.  Do you doubt but that this hoax helped the Democrats and other Swamprats to wreck the mid-terms of 2018?  Do you doubt it?  Do you doubt that Ryan and a number of other GOP members of the DC UniParty to make an early escape?  Think of how many high-ranking, or long-serving Republicans quit their House seats last year.  Why?  There’s always a reason, and I think much of it will come to light if there’s a thorough investigation of the Collusion Hoax and the treasonous attempt to overthrow President Trump.

For those of you who think that we ought to simply “let it go,” I must confess that I believe you’ve lost your minds.  We cannot and must not “let it go.” We must not let the Swamp make some nominal reforms but let the guilty go un-prosecuted or unpunished.  After all, that’s part of why we’ve landed here, isn’t it?  Wasn’t it the attempt to conceal and obfuscate Hillary’s crimes part of what went wrong?  Essentially, the swamp wanted to “let it go” where Hillary was concerned, and Obama wanted it that way.  We all know where this really leads, don’t we?  This whole thing lands on the desk of the President, but not President Trump.  It must all land on the desk of the chief executive who permitted, and perhaps even directed this treason. It is time now to ensure that whatever comes next, whatever issues the country faces, it does so on a foundation of an unadulterated rule of law. The American people must have confidence, or the republic will fall.  It is time now to see that whomever had been engaged in this attack on the republic, an attack I regard as potentially more consequential for the fate of our nation, had it succeeded, we must see to it that the conspirators answer for this crime. This time, there can be no letting it go.

Time for the Sword

Thursday, March 28th, 2019

Time for the Sword

In the wake of the Mueller report, with the revelation that just as the President had maintained all along, there had been no collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia, a whole chorus of voices has suddenly erupted on the Republican side to tell President Trump to “let it go.” Notable in representing that position has been the detestable Karl Rove, who urged President Trump to “move on” and focus on attracting middle-of-the-road voters who wouldn’t like to see this continue, in an article published in the Wall Street Journal.  As for his loyal base, who knew it was all a hoax, he’s supposed to ignore them, according to Rove and other Swamp-dwellers.  I might be inclined to use different terms in a moment of intemperate frustration, but the answer to that proposition must be “no.” There must be a reckoning here, and it must be carried out with a zeal seldom seen in Washington DC.  Justice has been perverted for more than two years, really, much longer than that, stretching back through at least the whole of the Obama administration, and as I suspect, back into the Bush era, and likely all the way through to the Clinton administration in the 1990s.  If you want to know why Rove and the rest of the Uni-Party players want this shut down, it has nothing to do with getting moderate voters’ support.  It has everything to do with saving their own skins.  The truth is that Lady Justice must be loosed on the lot of them if we’re ever to drain the swamp, and President Trump must make it entirely clear that now is the time for her sword.

It’s not as though the required clean-up needs to be the only thing on President Trump’s agenda, but I also believe it’s fair to say that if he to keep his promise to “drain the swamp,” an area where he’s had only token success, he’s going to need to let the sword fall again and again on the entire treasonous cabal that conspired to deny him the office, then to confound his presidency, and finally to remove him entirely.  The problem is that this cabal had elements in the previous administration, and it had elements that were part of the large permanent bureaucracy, a.k.a., the “Deep State,” but it also had elements who were part of his own party and its extended branches of the DC Uni-Party.  It is that segment of the Republican establishment from which you will now hear the calls to “move on.” We should have learned long ago that Rove and those like him offer conservatives only beatings, but never victory.

They can’t afford for the truth to be known about their complicity in attempting to overthrow Donald Trump.  They know that if he digs very far, and if he turns over a stone or two, it won’t be only a passel of Democrats and corrupt media types that the president will uncover.  Instead, what he’ll find is the whole dirty mess of them: Democrats and Republicans; Government officials and media outlets; deep-state bureaucrats and plants within his own administration.  In short, he will find that the corruption in Washington DC is so thorough that he’s going to need more than a sword, or several of them.  He’s going to need to clear-cut the whole place.

Naturally, there are several things President Trump has at his disposal.  One is his Attorney General, and all of the investigative and prosecutorial ability that is explicitly the province of the Department of Justice.  Another powerful tool he has at hand is the power of declassification.  He can simply start exposing the “Deep State” and all of its players by simply making public what has been classified previously, often with the sole purpose of preventing embarrassment or criminal exposure of employees and officials who would otherwise be forced to answer to we, the people.  There are other less obvious means the President may employ, and while I’ve mentioned these before, I think it’s time that President Trump begins to really think through how to drain the swamp in a meaningful and thorough manner.

President Trump can break up the swamp.  Part of the problem with Washington DC is that it concentrates the whole of the Deep State in one camp, where they can collude and conspire and carry on without reference, never mind respect, to the orders of those elected and appointed over them.  The President should begin immediately to decentralize our Federal Government’s offices, for the sake of National Security – in order to avoid our government having all its eggs in one basket – and for the good health and order of the Federal Government.  He should leave only a very small liaison office in place in the District of Columbia.  Everything else should be moved out to the several states, and he should use National Security as the excuse.  In order to further drain the swamp, he should order that due to the dire risk of having all our eggs in one basket, the government will not be paying relocation allowances for employees, so they either move at their own expense, or they look for work elsewhere.  This single action would absolutely wreck the swamp.  The moaning and groaning would be loud and exhausting.  Tough.  This is what you get when you attempt to overthrow the president elected by the people you allegedly swore an oath to serve.  Besides, people in the private sector lose their jobs to relocation of plants and offices routinely.  More, they often lose their jobs because some government regulator comes along and makes a rule that puts them out of business, often arbitrarily or capriciously. Again, tough!

You might claim this is “mass punishment.”  It’s a privilege to work for our government – not a right!

The President must immediately begin the process of loosing Lady Justice.  Otherwise, his presidency will be mooted, and he will never be able to get anything done anyway, so what was the point of his presidency?  President Trump shouldn’t take advice from Karl Rove or any other swamp-rat.  His loyal supporters who stood by them against the ridicule and torment of the two years of hoaxing deserve justice too.  No, Rove is speaking for the swamp.  He IS the swamp.  It’s time for justice Mr. President, and it’s damned-well time for the sword!

Editor’s Note:  A local Talk-show host in the DFW area began a petition on the Whitehouse site to get the President to deal with the Swamp. See it and sign up here.

 

How Donald Trump Can Save the World (Or at least the Internet)

Trump Can Save the World… Or at least the Internet

In the wake of the horrific shooting in New Zealand, what we’ve learned is that the country is fully invested in Internet censorship.  They now threaten to jail and fine people who possess, publish, and/or share video of the shooting.  There’s no such thing as Freedom of Speech in New Zealand, and this is a spreading phenomenon as more and more countries use their regulatory power over telecommunications companies as well as plain old tyrannical law to censor their people.  We must never permit this here in the United States, but increasingly, large corporations that claim exemptions under the Communications Decency Act have begun to behave like content publishers rather than mere publishing platforms for content creators.  This is despicable.  On the one hand, Facebook claims indemnification from lawsuits because they are not a content creator, but on the other hand, Facebook wants to control and maintain veto authority over content.   President Trump must act to take this on, and one lever he has against some foreign governments deals directly with Anglophone countries, including the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.  What he must do is threaten to walk from FVEY(pronounced Five Eyes) and begin denying them access to our signals intelligence.  They already deserve sanctions for assisting the Obama administration in spying on Trump’s campaign, but this is an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone: Reform and free the Internet along with free speech or the USA will withdraw from the UKUSA agreement.

President Trump should begin on a small scale, by conquering the Anglophone world, first. The first place he must act, sadly, is in the United States.  He must put the various “platforms” on notice that if they insist on censoring content, he will be forced to treat them just like any other content publisher.  Let’s see how that goes, first.  After that, he needs to push this first to the allegedly enlightened Anglophone world, and then to Europe, and from there, Central and South America.  After that, it gets harder, but he’s going to need to tackle this.  Not only can he save the Internet, but in the process, he can save the world. You see, the Internet really only works well when free speech prevails.

This morning, GatewayPundit published an article demonstrating pretty convincingly that Twitter has intentionally depressed the popularity of @realDonaldTrump and @POTUS in order to hamper President Trump directly.  There are two things about this that must be addressed:

  1. This may constitute an illegal campaign contribution to Democrats
  2. This would mean that Twitter is acting as a publisher, and not as a platform, which would end their exemption under the Communications Decency Act

Of course, there are all sorts of other things implied in this case, but it’s clear that Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s CEO, (@Jack on Twitter) is going to have some serious explaining to do. It’s clear that his social media platform is acting more like a content provider.  I and other conservatives have noted some “Shadow-banning” in association with our own accounts, and it began in earnest once Twitter began tinkering with its algorithms.  Early on, what you got in your timeline was always in pure date-time order, meaning you got the tweets of the people you followed, and that was it.  Then Twitter inserted ads.  After that, they began manipulating who you saw, and how often, and started trying to determine whose tweets you ought to see, and whose tweets you ought not see.  Then came the great timeline kerfuffle in which they openly and brazenly manipulated the way your timeline received tweets.  The blow-back was pretty severe, so they tucked away an option in your settings, hidden in plain sight, that permits as user to revert to plane date-time ordered timelines.  The problem is that even there, Twitter is still manipulating the results.

For the last several years, it has been strongly suspected, and now proven, that Twitter has shadow-banned users and content for what appear to be wholly political motivations. “Shadow-banning” basically lets a user send out his or her tweets like normal, but those tweets are hidden from the user’s followers, and neither the user nor his followers are aware.  In some cases, they’ve used this to simply delay the posting of tweets, meaning that your tweets will ultimately be seen, but often long after their relevance has been lost.  Sometimes, this seems to be user-based, and sometimes, it’s based purely on the content of a particular tweet.

What all of this means is that Twitter is engaged in systematic discrimination against conservatives and other users they don’t like for various reasons.  This means that they’re actually designing the content of peoples’ timelines, rather than letting come what may, as should be the case if they’re simply a platform for free speech, as they claim. It’s time to address this, and President Trump has that authority.  Yesterday, Devin Nunes(R-CA) filed a lawsuit against Twitter for defamation based on these and related types of discriminatory and misleading activities.  Here’s a clip from Hannity, on which Nunes appeared on Monday:

The President is in a position to do something about all of this, and he should leverage any assistance he can get from Congress, the Federal Communications Commission, the Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, and any other assets at his disposal.  If Twitter(and other social media companies) is going to maintain its exemption under the Communications Decency Act, then they must immediately cease censorship of content.  Otherwise, they must lose their exemptions and be subject to the myriad of lawsuits that would ordinarily arise if that exemption was not in place.  The whole purpose of that exemption was to create a place where free speech could reign, and not be confounded by endless lawsuits, but when the platform itself is corrupted, it becomes a publisher and not a referee preventing abuses.  That’s where the Federal role to intercede arises.

In our modern age, Twitter is just one of a number of social media companies, but as Nunes contends in his lawsuit, to remain competitive in politics, business, or almost any sort of pursuit, one must be tied into social media or be overrun by competitors.  It’s therefore essential that Twitter and other “platforms” be brought to heel, before they are making all of the decisions about who can speak in any context on any subject.  What they’re doing now is a fraud and a hoax against their users.  If President Trump wants to make a real difference, he can save free speech, and thereby save the prime value of the Internet, which is to give you and I a voice and a way to plug into the global discussion.  Otherwise, it really is just an Orwellian world of double-speak in which freedom doesn’t exist despite flowery words to the contrary.

Go get ’em, President Trump!

 

Judge Jeanine Silenced By FoxNews(Updated 2x)

Justice Finished at Fox News

Those of you who’ve been reading this blog for years will know that I’ve never been a big fan of Jeanine Pirro.  At times, I think her positions are not really so conservative, but that’s okay, because we’re all entitled to our own opinions.  If she annoyed me, I’d just change the channel, as I do with anybody else in media.  It’s called “choice,” but for some reason, leftists only enjoy non-choices disguised as choice(infanticide, for instance.)  In this case, what’s been revealed is the degree to which Fox News is becoming more and more like the other Ameriphobic news outlets.  The writing has been on the wall for several years, but viewers had reason to hope. Last Saturday, the 9th of March, on her Fox News weekly show Justice, Pirro asked about Ilhan Omar:

“Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Here’s a clip from a Youtuber that contains the controversial clip from “Justice with Jeanine:”

Notice that the quote cited above is the quote widely cited in media, but having watched the video, in context, this question doesn’t seem extraordinary or out of place.  Given Omar’s spate of ridiculous anti-Semitic remarks in recent weeks, Pirro’s question doesn’t seem out of line.

Fox News, now apparently an Ameriphobic network like most of the rest, decided to pull the plug on Pirro’s popular Saturday evening show, bowing to pressure from Islamophiles everywhere, including in corporate management.

Apparently the opinions and sensibilities of at Fox News are those of James Murdoch, Rupert Murdoch’s Ameriphobic son, who is running the network. After her question about Omar, Pirro refused to apologize, and as of this Saturday evening, she wasn’t on the air.  Justice is out at Fox News.

Annoyed, President Trump even retweeted somebody else’s complaint about it:


Of course, this was after he had tweeted extensively on the issue, seeming to demand that FoxNews buck up and defend its hosts, including Judge Jeanine. Earlier, he had tweeted this three-part tweet-storm(part 1:)

Like President Trump, I have tired of Fox News’ endless besmirching of patriotism and Americanism, particularly when it comes to their weekend lineup. I’m also tired of their incessant sucking-up to Islam. Pamela Geller was apparently banned from the network some time ago, and Geller was an unabashed critic of Islam. Her contention has been that there’s no real difference between radical Islam and Islam.  After Fox News stopped putting Pamela Geller on the network, I knew the network was headed down the path of surrender fast.

As of Sunday, it seems that Jeanine Pirro may be out entirely at FoxNews.

What’s most sickening is that after Fox News criticized Pirro, Ilhan Omar thanked the network.

As I’ve previously reported on this blog, Fox News is going to Hell.  The few conservatives on the network won’t be able to save it from its idiotic management by #Ameriphobes like James Murdoch and his gaggle of clucking Islamophiles.  I think I’m going to switch to One America News Network. I’ve been a Dish Network customer for years, but it looks like DirectTV offers OANN, so I may be headed that direction, unless ROKU offers it.  Besides, from what I’ve seen, OANN’s reporting is decidedly not Ameriphobic.  It’s time to turn the channel on Fox News. As a whole, the network has become hostile to my sensitivities, and this silencing of pro-America(n), anti-Jihadi voices must be stopped.  Now Fox News coddles an anti-Semite like Omar, while they toss overboard a host who, despite my disagreements on many issues, is an undeniable patriot.

I hate the media Nazis who seem to have need to silence voices they don’t like.

Screw Fox News.

Update: Now we learn that Fox News has rehired the disgraced Donna Brazile, who helped rig debates by providing Hillary the debate questions.

Update 2: H/T Mr. L for pointing me to this accurate and excellent article at AmericanThinker.
