Yan Report on Manufactured COVID19

Thursday, September 17th, 2020

Virologist Li-Meng Yan published her entire report on Zenoda.org. The report is available at this link.  Additionally, I’ve inserted the report here for ease of access:

The_Yan_Report

The report is highly technical, but her methodology seems straight forward. She identifies the places at which the genome of COVID19 has been spliced together. Basically, my lay-person’s understanding is that it’s clear from examination of the virus in detail that some cut-and-paste work went on with this virus.  Think of it like photo-shopping Hillary Clinton’s head onto Godzilla. In genetic terms, that’s what her report seems to indicate.  This explains her use of the term “Frankenstein” to describe the virus.

All of this is quite troubling, but what’s more troubling still is that the entirety of social media and the tech giants seems to be doing the bidding of China as they race to scrub her work from the Internet, or remove her from their sites, and also to attack her work with smears having no relation to her actual paper.

It’s not as though Dr. Yan is some sort of kook or conspiracy theorist, although they’re now rushing to paint her as such.

Why would all of these companies be working so hard to conceal this from you?

I thought they believed in “following the science.” Apparently, the only science they wish to follow is that which suits their narratives. Or China’s.

This is amazing, and quite dangerous in a “free society.” It’s garden-variety disinformation in a communist country.

Civil War II: The Left’s Order of Battle

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

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!

The New Fascism: The Rise of the #WokeSupremacists

Tuesday, June 9th, 2020

Klan, Bolsheviks, Brownshirts, BLM, Antifa: Political Thugs in History – Lineage of the Woke Supremacists

One of the things about the statists of the left is that they will always seek to disguise what they’re doing by using mislabeling, often even resorting to complete opposites. When they create some new piece of legislation that will be expensive and wreck the nation’s healthcare funding systems, they call it the “Affordable Care Act.” In truth, there’s nothing affordable about it, nor could they give a damn about the results for the American people.  This is their pattern.  Take something egregious, give it a nice-sounding name, and try to push it as far as possible in the name of their agenda.  This is true of their cohorts in Antifa.  These cowardly thugs claim to be anti-fascists, but in truth, they are imposing their own brand of the doctrine.  All dissent will be demolished.  All dissenters will be attacked.  If you love your liberties, they will happily work like demons to strip you of them, all while claiming to act in the name of liberty.  It’s a cynical, worn-out ploy, but it’s effective because the media, largely staffed with their ideological brethren, are only too happy to give them cover in the press. This is why we’ve been pretending violent riots and looting were really just “mostly peaceful protests.” This is why we’re now being told that “some violence can be good.”  This Orwellian doublespeak is the norm for the raging left, but it has recently taken on a new dimension.  They are using the social media giants’ platforms, along with the public sphere generally, to spread a new form of fascism by social pressuring. While they’ll never admit that they’re instituting a new form of facism, in the disguise of being “Woke,” they are now demanding, often with violence, threats, and vandalism that you join them or face the consequences.  Their views are superior, don’t you know, and they’re happy to prod you, cajole you, and bludgeon you into joining their “Woke Supremacy.”

This isn’t the first time a form of supremacy has come to light. We’ve seen it all before. Most often, it’s been racially or ethnically defined.  Occasionally, it’s been religiously defined. There is always some radical group somewhere willing to use violence and its threat to gain compliance of populations.  Now is no different, except that in this case, it’s purely ideological.  Yes, they’re using race as one of their cudgels, but if you listen carefully, you’ll notice that much of what they’re talking about is “privilege.” Not simply “white privilege,” as you’ve undoubtedly heard, but “privilege” alone.  The irony to which so many of these violent-minded loons seem oblivious is that many of them, a horde of them, have arisen from privilege.  Many of them are college-educated, though they seemed to have skipped all classical aspects of an education.  They seem instead to have been indoctrinated with all the agenda-driven schools of thought so popular on today’s radical campuses.  The 1960s and 1970s produced many radical leftist professors, who now run our institutions of higher education, which they have converted into indoctrination camps for American youth.  Their work was completed when they succeeded in seeding this into primary education through the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s.  Public schools are now a cesspool of this kind of wretched, useless, non-educational “education.”

For two generations now, they have been building a new fascist model, by which universities have been converted from havens for free speech, expression and thought, to utter quagmires of doctrinaire submission to a new orthodoxy from which there is no feasible means of dissent but pure silence and complete avoidance. Even this last strategy is now failed for serious students on our wickedly corrupt campuses now.  What they’ve been taught is that to reject all privilege requires that they abandon all their freedoms, but demand the subservience of others.  Their leaders prescribe the solutions, and they dutifully carry them out. If you oppose them, they’ll first try simple peer-pressure tactics. Those will give way to more focused social-shunning, and eventually to isolation and attack. You can accept the “Woke” theory of the day, or you will be punished, sometimes with a brick to the head. They are willing to use violent, and while most of their number reduce themselves to the state of unthinking brutes who simply follow the mob and echo its sentiments, the truth is that there exists a radical core that is the leader of the foot-soldiers, who coordinate attacks, put forward strategies, and otherwise drive the mob. Most of these young people are simply naive, foolish tools.  They want so badly to be part of something, and tremble at the thought of exclusion and isolation that they’ll do anything for the mob to which they belong.

In the end though, it’s just the same as it’s ever been: They believe themselves superior, not by virtue of their race or their sex or their relative wealth, but by their willingness to serve the interests of the “Woke” mob. You’re being misled if you’ve come to believe this is a passing fad.  Just as Trump’s army of supporters is really an outgrowth of the Tea Party of a decade ago, so too is Antifa just an augmented, repurposed continuation of the Occupiers who arose soon after.  It’s really the same war, in one sense, though the left has managed to indoctrinate your children, sometimes to violence, but almost uniformly against you.  The day is coming, if these new Woke Supremacists have their way, that the war will be fought, young against old, with the simple aim of relieving you of your freedoms, your property and wealth, and ultimately your lives.  Take this threat seriously, because it is real, and it’s coming for you. It’s coming for those of your children they’ve not yet corrupted and indoctrinated.  If you love them, get them out of the public schools.  Get them away from these people who will use them to attack you.

This new brand of fascism, disguised as some sort of civil rights movement, is really just another adjunct of the radical left. I do not an cannot support Black Lives Matters because I believe all lives matter, and I believe that all lives are endowed with unalienable rights. This isn’t a game.  What these radicals now demand is a wholesale disassembly of our entire system of law and government.  I reject their demands, whether issued through a bullhorn, the waving of a club, or at the point of a gun.  If they wish to take our country from us, I for one will fight, and I will fight with all I have, and all I can muster, along with all my countrymen who will turn out to stand with me.  This is not a game, and despite their contentions, I have been “woke” for a very long time, though not in the way they intend it.  I will not submit.  I will not surrender.  I will not genuflect for thugs.  I will not lay down my arms, and I will not yield.  If those of you who beg for peace wish to pretend to yourselves that it can be had cheaply or without effort or risk, you have deluded yourselves.  It is time that you cast off the false “truths” these wretched monster utter, unthinkingly and and with undue venom.

Now, today, the Army has let it be known they are considering stripping the names of confederate heroes from Army bases, including Ft. Hood, Texas. I absolutely disagree with this, and while the confederacy served an unjust purpose, many of its warriors were valorous men, irrespective of what we might now think of the politics of the day.  The idea that we would now bend our knees to these sorts of demands are simply more symbolic gestures intended to mollify a crowd that will not be turned aside by such gestures. It’s time to understand that this new “Woke Supremacy” is just the same old tyranny and anarchy in disguise.  We must say no.  Not everything in our culture can be up for negotiation. No! NO!

People must steel themselves for what is to come. The statists now marching under the banners of BLM and Antifa are merely the brown-shirts of our age. You are right to fear them. They have their sights set on you, your freedoms, your property, and ultimately, your lives. Reject it.  Reject it at all costs. If your children are to endure, we must now act to save our nation, or lay down and submit, surrendering it for many generations.  This is the United States of America, and this, I’ll defend.

Texas Justice à la Commode

Wednesday, May 6th, 2020

Tyrant Judge Takes Dump on Justice

When Dallas Judge Eric Moyé demanded that Salon a la Mode owner Shelley Luther apologize for her “selfishness,” he revealed himself as a despicable altruist. Altruists demand that people must live their lives for the sake of others, and must forfeit their liberties, properties, and lives when it is deemed necessary or otherwise in the “public interest.”  Shelley’s only error in this entire fiasco was in innocently agreeing to the sickening premise of the worthless judge: She contended that she did not see it as selfishness inasmuch as her chief concern lied with making a living to assist her in feeding her children, therefore refusing to apologize. This courageous woman has been through quite enough at the hands of a system gone wild, so it is understandable that she would claim not to have been selfish.  To Shelley Luther, let me say quite bluntly: You were indeed selfish, and you had every right to be, and the judge who sat there chastising you for your selfishness ought to be hauled off to a jail for the sake of the rest of us. Judge Eric Moyé is a despicable animal, a scumbag of the worst sort, and I don’t need to know a single thing about his resume or his career on the bench to say so. In this case, in which he sentenced Ms. Luther to a week in jail, he demonstrated everything we need to know about his unfitness for the bench.  His actions in this case make quite clear that he knows nothing of justice, and the case makes it quite clear that Judge Moyé is defecating on the entire concept of justice in Texas.

Ms. Luther might not understand my meaning, and I suppose it’s quite natural, given the state of our society and polity, that she might not have a point of reference for what I shall now explain. First, I shall ask a series of questions:

  • Whose Salon is it?
  • Whose earnings are at stake?
  • Whose property is at stake?
  • Whose livelihood is at stake?
  • The welfare of whose children are at stake?

The answer to all of these is quite clearly: “Shelley Luther’s.” In most accurate answer to the robed demon squatting imperiously on a bench, paid for, in part, by the efforts of Ms. Luther’s self-interest, Ms. Luther should have said:

 I love my life. I love all the great and wonderful things my life and my efforts in its name have produced, and among those things are my children, my business, my associates, my clientele, my home, and all the other things my own efforts have garnered for me and helped me to build, so that if the accusation is that I had been selfish in re-opening my business in the furtherance of all I love, and that my love of my life and all these enriching fulfillments of it are to be adjudged as selfishness, then yes, I am unashamedly selfish, and I will not apologize for any of it, and I further state to the hearing of the world that any court, or any law, that would damn me or condemn me for my rightful selfishness to my love and my life may not rightfully claim the name of justice on this good Earth, and must be banished straight to Hell for the crime it is against all humanity, and if this declaration is to serve as the evidence of my contempt for this court, then let the record show that there is not enough contempt within the four walls of this room, or the four corners of this good Earth to enclose the span of the contempt with which I now respond to this court’s sick demand for an apology for all that I cherish and all that I love.

Ms. Luther had every reason to refuse to apologize, but she should not disclaim the selfishness. She should be proud of it. She had every right to be selfish. If she loves her children, and she values their welfare ahead of the interests of a tyrannical state, she is expressing an entirely selfish love, and she is rightfully entitled to it.

I am disgusted by this worthless judge, and by the system that has empowered him to dispose of the lives of Americans who had committed NO CRIME.

I want Judge Eric Moyé to know in no uncertain terms that he is the enemy of liberty, and the enemy of every living Texan. He is not an officer of justice, but a purveyor of injustice, and had he any honor, he would surrender his robe and his bench and relinquish them for all days. As it is, Judge Moyé is a greedy worthless bastard. He must be removed from the bench by whatever legal means are at the disposal of the people of Texas.

I want Governor Greg Abbott to know that he has culpability in all of this, having empowered dirt-bags like Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins to prey upon the people of Texas, to use whatever power he has under the Texas Constitution to pardon Ms. Luther and to commute her sentence, lest he be eligible to all the same remedies. This is not justice. Texans have a right to their lives, their liberties, and their livelihoods, and as a former Attorney General, he should have known better than to have participated in this over-hyped madness during which the rights of Americans, and Texans, were subordinated to the demands of a mob. He’s as guilty as Judge Moyé, for his role in this blasphemously despicable attack on liberty.  Fix it. Americans in general, but Texans especially, should never be reduced to the state of groveling in front of a worthless scum like Judge Moyé to beg for their rights or their freedoms, and Abbott had damned-well better do something about it.

 

The New N-Word

The ultimate term of derision

Of all the things to come out of this #WuFlu #FakePanic #Plannedemic is the degree to which some Americans so cavalierly cast aside their fellow Americans with their crass terminology.  This is especially true of the dictatorially-minded bureaucrats and elected officials who dared to consider some Americans and some business activities as “Non-essential.” To all those public officials, elected, appointed, and otherwise subsisting on the government dole, I have a question: Who in the HELL are YOU to tell ANYBODY who is or isn’t “essential,” or what business activities are “necessary.”

I don’t like to use expletives, but this whole situation has me sorely tempted to use some.  For the sake of my readers, I will therefore restrain the immoderate impulses currently pushing me in the direction of a curse-laden tirade, but I must say that I find you public officials to be despicable. I find your dismissal of your fellow Americans beyond disrespectful, and the callous nature by which you simply devalue their lives and their fortunes as “non-essential.”

What is it to be “non-essential?” It means you aren’t really needed. You’re like the gravy on the potatoes, or the ketchup on the burger. You might be nice to have under some conditions, but otherwise, you’re not needed. Think of the people damning their fellow Americans as “non-essential.” Can you think of a more wretchedly arrogant and COMPLETELY unnecessary group of jackasses? Of all the things another human could call me and my pursuits, none is more offensive to me than “non-essential.” It’s the ultimate term of derision that cares not for race or sex or orientation or age, but merely the estimate of your worth in the eyes of some elite jackass. Rather than being discriminated against due to some innate characteristic, you’re being discriminated against based on somebody’s perverse estimate of your worth!

Let me be more direct: NONE OF YOU ARE ESSENTIAL, you bunch of hypocritical jackasses without whom we could live quite nicely. WE DON’T NEED YOU.

YOU EXIST FOR US! FOR US! FOR US!!!!!

IF we’re “Non-essential,” then by God, so are you, and if we are to be disposed with the wave of a hand and the scorn of the term “non-essential,” then I WANT EVERY ONE OF YOU ELECTED JACKASSES GONE!

Does that clarify the matter? For what do we need YOU if WE aren’t essential? WE pay the freight. WE pay for your salaries. WE do. If WE are “NON-ESSENTIAL,” then EVERY LAST ONE OF YOU CAN GO STRAIGHT TO HELL because you’re completely unnecessary.

The next time the word “non-essential” crosses your minds, you’d best grab it before it crosses your lips. The next public official who mouths that phrase in my proximity might just get more than a harsh talking-to if this term of intense derision is used in my presence.

It’s 2020. Times change, we’re told. Fine. Start with this one. The new N-Word you’d better not use to describe another American or their  profession is “Non-essential.”

 

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 #ChinaWuhanCoronaVirus Panic Is Unnecessary and Contrived(Updated)

Monday, March 30th, 2020

China Originated Viral Infectious Disease #19(COVID-19 a.k.a. #WuFlu)

Ladies and gentlemen, I occasionally write from what must seem to be a purely contrarian point of view.  I realize that my approach to some topics makes me the natural target for those who demand conformity in all matters.  On so-called “Anthropogenic Climate Change,” I’ve long maintained that the evidence in-hand in no way supports the will conclusions and claims of so-called “Climate Activists,” and that instead, simple logic exposes the foolishness of their claims to an extent that their motive is not revealed to be the result of simple ignorance, but instead one of intentional disinformation for political purposes.  You can agree or disagree with my arguments on that topic, but in the past, as I’ve made my arguments, I’ve not heard any retorts to the logic.  In this case of the Wuhan Coronavirus known formally as COVID-19(COronaVIrus Disease2019[*],) but herein called #WuFlu for shorthand, I believe we are being intentionally mis-informed and driven into an entirely unnecessary, unwarranted panic while simultaneously surrendering liberties to governmental demands in answer to the non-existent emergency that has aroused this ridiculous panic.  That’s quite an allegation on my part, but as ever, I stand prepared to defend my assertion.

Don’t misunderstand: There IS a COVID-19.  What there ISN’T is any evidence that:

  • #WuFlu is actually killing anybody
  • #WuFlu is lethal in and of itself
  • #WuFlu is any more lethal than ordinary influenza

If you have irrefutable evidence of ANY of these, please provide it in the comments below. To date, no government authority or medical institution in the private sector has yet to provide any.  Let’s start by playing a logic game.  Let’s imagine you’re a healthcare provider.  Let’s further stipulate that a patient coming to you for care presents with the following list of symptoms:

  • Persistent Fever
  • Cough
  • Body Aches

That sounds just like #WuFlu!  So the healthcare provider uses a test to determine that yes, indeed, you have #COVID-19, and from that moment on, if you die, it’s going to be assumed that COVID-19 killed you.  But did it?  Did they test you for other infectious agents?  No! They’re not going to test you to see if you also have influenza, or some other disease.  Once you’re tagged with “COVID-19,” you will be counted as having expired due to COVID-19 even if it was actually your lung cancer that killed you.

In the 2017-18 influenza season, the CDC reports an estimated 61,000 people died from influenza.  First, note that this is an “estimate,” and second, that the death rate was roughly 1 in 1000.  Roughly one person of every one-thousand who was infected with influenza purportedly died of it.  I remember this particular influenza season quite well, because my father very nearly succumbed to pneumonia thought to be secondary to the respiratory influenza that ultimately killed so many people in that season. I knew a number of elderly people, primarily men in their late 70s or 80s, who either died or nearly died in that season. Most of them had other health issues(my father a diabetic, for instance,) and others with various forms of COPD or smoking, or heart issues.  This should sound quite familiar to you, because it’s the same exact class of people allegedly dying by COVID-19.

In fact, every flu season, it is almost always this same class of people who die in large numbers from this crud.  I know it. You know it.  The numbers bear it out each year.

That said, let me ask you a question I’d like you to consider: If you’re tested positive for #WuFlu, what information do you have that excludes the possibility that if you’re exhibiting some or all of the symptoms above, that it’s the result of COVID-19 and not something else?  This is one of those basic syllogisms with which you’re going to need to wrestle.

Of course, I’m not a physician, or a medical professional of any sort, and my studies in my profession have nothing to do with epidemiology, or any related field. What my field does heavily rely upon is logic.  In all respects.

Here is a German doctor explaining the matter.  If you’re not a German-speaker, you’ll need to rely upon the subtitles, but after consulting with my wife(a German by birth,) the subtitles are faithful to the good doctor’s intent:

Mark Twain(Samuel Clemens) is purported to have said:

It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.

Whether he wrote these precise words may be in doubt, but he certainly wrote:

How easy it is to make people believe a lie, and hard it is to undo that work again!

It seems to me they mean the same, so let’s credit him with the sentiment if not the precise words. As Dr. Wodarg alleges, this Emperor seems to be naked.

Still doubting? That’s understandable, since I’m just a guy on the Internet with a keyboard and an opinion, and virtually everybody has at least one of those.  Some of you will be familiar with Candace Owens, and I commend to you her work.  She’s trying very hard to demolish the stranglehold she alleges that the #DemocratMediaComplex has on the black community. She posted this on Twitter(@RealCandaceO):

It’s from the CDC. What it represents is the sharp drop-off in Influenza Positive tests since the emergence of COVID19. In other words, what’s really happening is that if you test positive for COVID19, they’re not testing for anything else in most cases.  They’re blaming everything on COVID19! Influenza has become an invisible killer for which we’re not testing.  More, when people self-quarantine because they have the symptoms above, it’s being assumed in many cases that they have/had COVID19.  There’s no verification in many cases.

Are you starting to see a trend? This should be getting your eyebrows raised, at least a bit. If not, you may be succumbing to the impetus of the herd.

I’m not going to tell you that there’s no danger from #WuFlu.  You must make your own judgments, but make sure they’re your own judgments, and that you’re not being driven to them.  What I notice is that Americans are increasingly frustrated and even more often, furious, as it becomes clear that we’re laying waste to the best economy on Earth in order to pursue an alleged public health crisis that may be even more false and more hyped than so-called “Anthropogenic Climate Change.”

While I’m on that topic, I’d like to bring a related matter to your consideration, also on the matter of COVID19, but also the possibility that local/regional environmental concerns might be contributing to the death toll being seen in various hot-spots around the globe.  Tony Heller is a first-rate guy, and his website realclimatescience.com is first-rate. I’ve been reading his site for a long time, and I follow him on Twitter (@Tony_Heller). This video, also featuring a German doctor, is definitely worth the watch, albeit for somewhat different but related reasons:

Ladies and gentlemen, I want you to look out for your health, and I want you to look out especially for the health of those who are what might be termed “medically fragile,” inasmuch as they may be elderly, or have significant pre-existing conditions that would make them a target for any communicable respiratory pathogen.   Wash your hands, mind your social distance, and begin to demand of the media and your political leaders: Where is the evidence?

We’re killing our economy, which will in turn surely kill MANY MORE PEOPLE than this disease will have done, and we have no evidence that COVID19 has actually killed ANYBODY. None. Nada.

Think about that.

We can go into motives another day. For the moment, ignore the question of motives, and focus instead on the situation. I don’t know exactly why, as of now, but it seems fairly clear to me that we’re being played.  The panic is a scam.  We need to demand our leaders explain why. Now.

 

Editor’s note [*] When this article originally published, it was stated that COVID-19 stands for “ChinaOriginatedViralInfectiousDisease#19” That was false, and while it had come from what seemed a reputable site, that site has also changed their annotation, so I have corrected mine. The fact remains that the virus originated, with the best information at hand, in the Wuhan Province of China in 2019.

The Democrats’ Dog-And-Pony Primary

Wednesday, March 11th, 2020

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.

Nation of Conspiracy Theorists: How the Death of Jeffrey Epstein Wrecked Our Government

Monday, August 12th, 2019

Ordinary Suicide?

Some will say our government had been wrecked already. A strong case can be made that the entire fiasco of the Russia-Collusion Hoax and the plot to overthrow a Presidency has already done much to destroy the credibility of the government.  Heck, part of the reason President Trump asked William Barr to an encore appearance as the nation’s attorney general was with the restoration of the government’s credibility in mind.  It’s part of why this President has stayed clear of the Department of Justice, wanting it and its subordinate departments to be cleaned up by virtue of the people he appoints, rather than by direct intercession lest any prosecutions necessary to the clean-up have the stench of partisan motives attached. Sadly, all of that was wrecked on Saturday morning when Jeffrey Epstein allegedly committed suicide in federal custody. The failure of the US Federal Government to safeguard an inmate who allegedly attempted suicide last month is absolutely shocking. It’s been reported that cameras in the facility may not have been recording during the billionaire inmate’s alleged suicide.  There are all sorts of unconfirmed stories circulating, but the real problem is this: Nobody believes the Federal Government’s story.  Nobody believes it was a simple suicide.  At the very least, there was very “convenient” misfeasance or malfeasance in the supervision of this inmate.  The part that has so many Americans furious is that there may be co-conspirators, many wealthy and well-connected people, who will “get away with it” because their chief co-conspirator is dead.  All that remains is a large number of female accusers, who will be diminished by defense attorneys into cases of “he-said; she-said” if ever they come to trial.  In short, dead men tell no tales, as Paul Joseph Watson pointed out early Saturday morning:

The United States Federal Government has zero credibility. The Federal Bureau of Investigations has zero credibility.  The United States Department of Justice is a joke.  There can be no respect for the rule of law when third-world, banana-republic spectacles like this are permitted.  We’ve known since at least the fake exoneration of Hillary Clinton by James Comey in 2016 despite obvious and repeated criminal conduct that justice is for sale in America.  Jeff Sessions was supposed to fix this. Rod Rosenstein was supposed to fix this. Matthew Whittaker was going to straighten this out. Most recently, Bill Barr was going to set this all straight and restore the credibility of the Department of Justice.  Given the string, I suppose failure was his only option. This creates a problem for the Federal Government, however: The American people no longer believe anything they say, any longer.  This particular failure was so obviously impending and grotesque in its inevitability that many of us expected this result.  Really, among those of you following this case, how many expected Epstein to survive until trial?  This is a serious problem for President Trump, and for Attorney General Barr, not to mention Director Wray over at the FBI.  Nobody trusts these Federal departments. Any of them.  Why should we?  They get tips about mass murderers weeks in advance but do nothing; they let serial criminal felons go; they participated in an attempted coup d’etat; they put their fingers on the scales of American elections; they lean into the whole rule of law to upset and confound it. Who in their right mind would believe any of them?

Epstein was in the process of being prosecuted for what were alleged to have been a lengthy string of despicable sex trafficking crimes, allegedly involving many, many minors over a period of more than a decade. He was a straight-up pedophile.  Worse, it is still alleged that he had co-conspirators in the child sex trafficking that included a who’s-who of famous, wealthy, and well-connected people.  One of the people as yet unnamed but widely believed to have been involved was former President William “Bill” Clinton.  He took at least 26 known flights on Epstein’s so-called “Lolita Express,” a Boeing 727 outfitted as a luxury private plane.  Allegedly, various sex romps and so on occurred aboard the plane.  With the release of a trove of previously sealed documents yesterday, it was thought Epstein might be induced to “sing,” giving up some of his clientele/co-conspirators. It’s also been widely rumored that Epstein was really running an extortion racket of some sort, related to all the perverse sexual exploits said to be ongoing in his orbit.

Whatever Epstein was doing, and with whom, we’re unlikely now to learn it. Just as the media has effectively blacked-out the entire NXIVM sex-trafficking scandal, so too will the blot this entire episode from our national memory.  Monsters will go unpunished.  I know one thing though: I’m going to start putting our politicians to the test. I am going to demand that they amend the constitution to make people who commit sex crimes against minors eligible for the death penalty, and to make federal law such that the ordinary statutes of limitation countdown commences only upon the victim reaching the age of twenty-one years.

Let’s face it: This is the biggest in-custody death since Lee Harvey Oswald, but at least there, we had video.  Our government has lost all credibility.  Claims of “incompetence” just don’t cut it here, Mr. Attorney General.  I wonder how deep this really goes. It wasn’t too long ago that I rejected “conspiracy theories” as lazy thinking, but I’m astonished by this case.  The one thing everybody predicted about Epstein was that he wouldn’t survive jail.  People said it in the form of a joke, but everybody who said it knew that this was not a laughing matter.  It’s rumored that the wikipedia page for Ghislane Maxwell(Epstein’s alleged accomplice) temporarily showed her as deceased as of 18 August, 2019.  Of course, anybody can edit wikipedia.org, which is one reason it’s a reliable source of information, but if nothing else, it serves as a reminder that there are other witnesses the Feds need to be rounding-up. If they’re smart, they’ve disappeared, or they’ll probably end up like Epstein.

Rush Limbaugh spent a goodly part of his Monday show setting up callers in order to debunk their conspiracy theories. Naturally, the callers selected seemed to have been picked based on their kook quotient.  It’s now been revealed that his cell-mate was transferred just hours before his alleged suicide.  Can this get any more ridiculous?  The circumstances of the death of Epstein are so bizarre, and so inconceivably outlandish that my wife has weighed in with her own “conspiracy theory,” and I can’t refute it:

This was set up to be as obvious as possible.  “They” took him out in the most obvious way, and it will be ruled a suicide despite all the obvious oddities.  The conspirators don’t care how obvious it looks.  They don’t care if you know what really happened, so long as nobody can prove it. It’s the ultimate “F U” from the elite dirt-bags associated with Epstein to you, the people of the United States.  It’s like flipping you the bird and saying “na-na, na-na, na-na, you can’t touch us.”

Of course, I suspect we’ll never know. I don’t think it’s any more knowable at this point than whether Jack Ruby was really acting on his own, or instead part of some deep, dark conspiracy.  The problem is that we mustn’t accept this answer.  Our government has no credibility so long as this remains unresolved.  There are too many theories that too many people now believe with some conviction.  What virtually all of them share is that this death is not a simple suicide owing to the simple incompetence of a handful of people in government.  I’m sure some reader here will contradict me now, but no person I know face-to-face believes anything the government has said on this, whatever else their personal theories might indicate.

The credibility of our government is now in virtual tatters, but it must be said that it will continue to be this way until we, the people, insist upon something different. I had barely heard the details of the story of Epstein’s death on Saturday before I was dialing my own House representative, and my two Senators. This is unacceptable, and I also warned them: If I discover that they’re linked in any way to Epstein and his illicit shenanigans, they can consider themselves ineligible for re-election. That’s the first test people need to apply to all Republicans and Democrats and Independents.  The second should be:  What are they doing to restore the credibility of the US Government? We can’t permit this to go on any longer in our country. We mustn’t.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

The Challenge We Face With Ignorance About Guns

Thursday, August 8th, 2019

Friends?

I was watching Fox and Friends on Thursday morning. Pete Hegseth was substituting for Steve Doocey, alongside regulars Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, and in their last hour, about nine minutes in, Pete mentioned how the discussion always turns to guns. Ainsley asked Pete what he uses a “gun like that for,” implying that an AR-15 is something odd or weird.  Pete made an explanation about his right to defend himself and so on, but he seemed unprepared for the question, and I think Ainsley was trying to ambush him a little.  Watch this video, beginning at 9:20:

Here’s the problem: Ainsley Earhardt doesn’t apparently know the first thing about firearms, and Pete Hegseth doesn’t know how to defend his position very well.

Both aspects of this small clip are discouraging to me, because I am terribly frustrated that Ms. Earhardt hasn’t taken the time to inform herself, and Mr. Hegseth, a veteran, hasn’t made himself more able to defend his position and be prepared to answer the kind of question Earhardt asked. It shouldn’t be difficult to shine a little light in this darkness.

I’d love to help them both.  First, Ms. Earhardt should be open to a little weapons education.  I’m sure with his friends and connections, Mr. Hegseth can find somebody to facilitate a little range-time and take the Fox and Friends show on the road, maybe to Ms. Earhardt’s home state of South Carolina. In that state, it should be easy to find people who’d be willing to demonstrate the difference between a select-fire AR or AK type rifle and the more run-of-the-mill auto-loading (or semi-automatic) firearms so that she could be informed.  After all, this is not difficult.  Let Ms. Earhardt fire the actual military versions, on automatic(with coaching) and then fire the semi-automatic cousins. Show that externally, the two weapons can look exactly alike, minus the selector for automatic.

Now, with respect to Mr. Hegseth, it’s a somewhat easier cure. Hegseth seems to be a reasonably intelligent guy, but based on this segment, I don’t think he’s spent much time thinking about how to defend his position in an highly politicized environment.  He should have asked Ms. Earhardt, first: “Do you know the difference between an actual so-called “assault rifle” which is the actual weapon of war, and a civilian modern sporting rifle, which however it looks, is not an “assault weapon?”

Whatever Ms. Earhardt may or may not know, it doesn’t seem she’s well-versed in firearms.  At that point, she would probably be reduced to: “No, I don’t know the difference.”  This is where education can occur.  Let me help. The two popular types, AK and AR, have several things in common.  In the main, they are gas-operated rifles that us the spent gas of one round to automatically load the next round. Where the difference between the military version and the civilian version comes in is the fact that the military versions have the ability to continue firing by simply holding the trigger. In this mode, the cyclic rate of these rifles can be extraordinary, in the case of the AR platform, obtaining a rate of 800 rounds per minute. The AKs, due to their heavier reciprocating assembly(bolt, carrier, piston, etc) are somewhat slower, attaining roughly 600 rounds per minute, but their bullets are roughly twice as heavy, carrying more energy even though they move at roughly 2/3s to 3/4s the muzzle velocity of the .223/5.56mm round used by the AR platform.

Hegseth should be well-versed in the technical differences between automatic and semiautomatic weapons. That’s not his problem.  His problem is his inability to express the need he might have of such a rifle, but more importantly the right he has to own one.  My readers are well aware of the fact that I believe machine guns ARE covered(and protected) by the Second Amendment.  Let assume, however, that we intended only to defend the right to own a semi-automatic version that is a machine-gun look-alike.  Let’s start with our right. Leftists and other anti-gun folk claim that when the 2nd Amendment was adopted, the standard service arm of the day was a musket. This is true, however, both semi-automatic and automatic arms had been invented, but were seen as too expensive for Congress to obtain in numbers sufficient to outfit their army.  However, it is important to understand that the musket was the standard of that day.  So was the feather quill pen and ink well, along with the manually set printing press.  The notion was that armed citizens ought to have and maintain the ability to resist an overbearing government, which would imply directly that the founders thought citizens ought to be at parity with the Army, at least in terms of firearms.  At the very least then, we can see that the founders’ intended object of the the 2nd Amendment was to guarantee the right to an armed resistance in case of blossoming tyranny.

Part of the problem is that Earhardt asked the question: What do you use them(“assault weapons”) for?  The great thing about the modern AR type rifle is that it works great for many things. They’re excellent all-around ranch guns, they’re excellent for self-defense in situations where the defender is outnumbered, and they are useful in hunting. (Some state prohibit some calibers for hunting, but it may be game-dependent and so on.) Of course, you can built an AR-type rifle in many calibers, and also an AK-type. At times, I’ve seen AR-15 platform rifles in at least a dozen calibers, AR-10s in several more, and AKs in at least a half-dozen, including 12 and 20 gauge shotguns.

Hegseth, caught a little flat-footed, managed to say “for personal protection,” but he should have had a laundry list: “To defend my home, to hunt, to do target practice, I compete with others, and I keep up my skills in case I’m ever called upon to return to active duty to defend my country,” or some variant of that. Instead, he came across as somebody who walked into a battle he didn’t know he was going to be called upon to fight.  I do wonder if Earhardt didn’t ambush him with that question.  She may be sincere, but I think the question was part of satisfying an agenda.  Of course, that’s fine, but Hegseth should have been ready.

Now, if Hegseth was clever, he’d make a pitch to do a remote from some place in South Carolina, perhaps he could contact the good folks at Palmetto State Armory, and maybe for the publicity, they’d be willing to host a little shoot and bring Ms. Ainsley down there to her home state and do some shooting.  I think it would be awesome. They sell both AK and AR platform rifles, and they have a great reputation.  They may even be able to get somebody who owns properly-licensed automatics to do a little demonstration.  The point is, it shouldn’t be hard for FoxNews to provide actual education to their audience, if they wanted to do so.

Let people see the differences. If pictures are worth a thousand words, then video is worth a million.  I think this is the value of having people in the gun-owning community reach out to the woefully uneducated to fill in the vacuum. People have a tendency to fill in the unknown with the bogey-man. They don’t fill in the unknown with rainbows and unicorns.  If you can alleviate the vacuum by replacing it with actual knowledge, questions like Earhardt’s will be answered and the bogey-man will be vanquished.  At the same time, somebody like Hegseth must do much more to be prepared for those kinds of questions. He should have crushed it, but he came across looking a little evasive and uncomfortable in his answer.  That’s definitely NOT what the gun community needs.

It could be that I’m picking at nits, but I think people who are going to discuss gun ownership before audiences of a million or more ought to have their acts together.  I like Hegseth, as he seems committed to assisting veterans’ organizations, and he certainly seems to have his heart in the right place. It’s not that his answer was “bad,” so much as it seemed incomplete and unprepared. Earhardt, earning the money she does working at FoxNews, ought to be able to alleviate her ignorance if she was sincere. Given her home state, it should be easy for her to discover the answers.  I think it’s fair to suggest that before one throws around terms like “assault weapons,” one ought to know what that terms is being used to describe.

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.

Sticking it to the Man: Break the Social Media Tyrants

Social Media Tyranny on Trial

It’s despicable what has been going on in Social Media. Twitter and Facebook routinely “shadow-ban” conservative users, letting them post their content, but making the content effectively invisible to everybody else on the platform.  Sometimes, they tamper with search algorithms so that conservative content just doesn’t show up. More recently, Facebook has begun to coordinate with leftist groups to expose members of “secret” groups in order to cause them difficulties. This happened most recently when the leftist dung-heaving group known as Pro-Publica “exposed” some memes posted in a secret Facebook group created by Border Patrol agents. Facebook is assisting in these sort of exposures. Those of you who think you’re in a “secret” group beware: There is no secret Facebook will not expose.  How long before they begin releasing your private messages? Facebook is not to be trusted. Twitter is almost as bad, and in some ways, worse. I’m pulling out of both platforms. These people can only be tyrannical because we continue to let them.  WE can suck all the fun and good that remains in these platforms out simply by leaving.  How long do you suppose people will hang around once half their friends leave and refuse to return.  It’s time to drive Facebook and Twitter stock into the toilet.  It’s time to break them. It’s time to take away their power.  After all, they have only the power we give them.

Congress had a chance to bring these rabid dogs to heel.  They failed.  It’s now our turn.  By now, almost every patriot I know is fed up with this.  It’s time to do something, and if I have to begin this as an Army of One, I’m fine with that.  The thing is, I know I’m not alone.  People are fleeing Twitter and Facebook.  They’re abandoning Google in favor of DuckDuckGo.com.  They’re going to Parler.com and Gab.com rather than Twitter. They’re going to Minds.com rather than Facebook. I’m making the move effective now. As people abandon the old platforms dominated by the left, these large platforms will die and be replaced.  It won’t happen over night, of course, but every journey begins with a single step, and every flood begins with a single drop.

 

Proud to be an American!(Video)

Friday, July 5th, 2019

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.

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.

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)

Monday, March 18th, 2019

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:)

 

(part 2:)

 

(part 3:)

 


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.

McCain Pimped Hoax Trump Dossier

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

The Ghost of Betrayals Past

It had been suspected for some time, and as long as a year before his illness and death, many people were whispering that Arizona Senator John McCain had been involved in distributing the now entirely discredited Trump Dossier put together by Clinton Campaign operatives and smuggled into the FBI as evidence of alleged “Trump Collusion” with Russia.  It’s now known that the only collusion with Russia was carried out by Hillary Clinton’s various campaign operatives and dirt merchants Fusion GPS. Now it has been revealed in court documents that Senator McCain and at least one associate were busy pimping the so-called “Trump Dossier” all over town.  His irrational hatred of Donald Trump finally drove him to do the unthinkable: He became the tool of Hillary Clinton and the Russians. Like Mitt Romney, he decided that if he couldn’t win the presidency, Donald Trump mustn’t be permitted to win it either. McCain was used as Hillary’s messenger boy to deliver pages of the document to the FBI Director, at the time James Comey, while McCain’s associate, David Kramer, a former State Department flunky, delivered it to CNN, Buzzfeed, and the Washington Post.

Ladies and gentlemen, this merely demonstrates what we already knew: The only good thing about McCain had been his Vice Presidential pick in 2008.  In the end, he was nothing but a fake smut-merchant acting on behalf of Hillary Clinton, her most vicious associates, and the Democrat Party.  People had suspected this right along, but McCain continued to deny it right until he left the public eye.  One would have thought that in his dying days, he’d have sought to make amends for his bad deeds, since by then, it was well known that the so-called “Steele Dossier” was a complete and utter hoax.  Instead, he apparently went to his grave stubbornly refusing to recognize how he had been used due to the hostility he still bore toward President Trump, evinced by the fact that he purposefully excluded the president from his funeral.  It’s a sad way to go, bearing hatred and lies as a burden into the hereafter. After all, tradition holds that Wrath is among the deadliest of sins.

For my part, I never trusted McCain, and the way he permitted his former campaign crew to publicly smear Sarah Palin for a loss they caused with their ridiculous “suspended campaign” strategy to face the financial crisis was just another bit of insight into the man’s character.  Had he been so honorable as he’d been treated for so long, he’d have told those nitwits to shut up.  Instead, some suggest he actually directed the smears. In any event, he is gone but his lie lives on in the mouth of every media outlet, every Democrats and NeverTrumper in Washington DC, and while most will abide the notion to refrain from speaking ill of the dead, in this case, it’s difficult because the actions of the last few years of his life earned him whatever scorn may be heaped upon him, and because the record needs to be set straight.

 

Update: Barr Validates Emergency Declaration

Saturday, March 16th, 2019

Barr Lays Down the Law

As I explained some time ago, President Trump certainly has the legal authority to declare an emergency and take various actions under the auspices of the declaration, including moving around funds already appropriated, seizing private property, and a number of other actions broadly understood to be within his Article II powers. On Friday, a number of wretched Republican fools, a Dirty Dozen, joined with Democrats in voting to overturn that declaration. President Trump then immediately vetoed that resolution, and since there are insufficient votes to overturn his veto, the declared emergency will stand.  New Attorney General William Barr had a few words to say on the subject:

What Barr makes clear is what Mark Levin, myself, and many others have asserted: This is well within the authority of the President of the United States.

It’s time for the #GOPDirtyDozen to apologize to the President, and to the American people. Here’s what you can do: The next time these Senators come up for re-election, make sure they have a plausible primary challenger and send all of them home:
