Semper Fidelis: First Sergeant Bennett, USMC (Retired) UPDATE

Friday, August 27th, 2021

John Bennett, First Sergeant, USMC, Retired

For those who think Joe Biden’s pathetic performance as Commander-in-Chief is an unconscionable dereliction of duty, here’s a retired Marine from Oklahoma who agrees. He’s got some things to say about the entire useless, feckless chain of command.  First Sergeant Bennett pulls no punches:

Steve Bannon interviewed First Sergeant Bennett on WarRoom this morning. This is also worth your time. He’s so right about this entire debacle.

As if all this isn’t bad enough, now comes Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Scheller, USMC, to ask some pointed questions of the chain of command:

Update: According to this report on Daily Caller, Colonel Scheller has been relieved for cause. He’s getting a patriot’s reward from this treasonous administration.

President Trump Addresses the Nation

Friday, August 27th, 2021

President Trump speaks to America

In a prepared video that was provided to Sean Hannity for airing on his FoxNews show Thursday evening, President Trump provided a brief statement to the nation about the events in Afghanistan today, particularly, and on the sorry conduct of Joe Biden and his entire feckless administration. The Afghanistan debacle is sickening.  Here is President Trump’s statement:

Trump Rally in Alabama Draws Massive Crowd(Videos)

Sunday, August 22nd, 2021

Will the left stop him again?

With warm-up speakers that included Senator Tuberville(R-AL), Congressman Mo Brooks(R-AL), and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, among a host of others, the Trump rally in Cullman, Alabama was a raucous event carried on OANN, Real America’s Voice, and Right-Side Broadcasting Network live on Saturday.  Mo Brooks got an unexpected(to him) raft of disapproval when he suggested attendees look forward to 2022 and 2024.  The crowd isn’t done with 2020, based on their reaction.  I think Brooks, who adjusted himself fairly well on the fly, realized this after the crowd gave him such an overwhelming heckling. The crowd chanted “Fix it now!” They aren’t interested in supporting Republicans just to support Republicans. They want people who will fight to undo the election fraud of 2020. His most applause-getting line was his exit. Then came the opening to the movie Patton, George C. Scott on the jumbotron, giving a speech to the troops before a gargantuan flag backdrop, and its opening line got more applause than Brooks.  To set the mood:


President Trump appeared on stage directly afterward, with Save America hats he threw out to the crowd as he made his way to the podium. I would call this his Rush Limbaugh speech: “See, I told you so.” He ticked-off a long laundry list of how America has been diminished by Joe Biden and the radical left. He said “Woke means loser.” And then: “Everything ‘woke’ turns to shit.” Watch below:


The speech was well-received by rally-goers, all except for one thing, and it’s a different thing than what got Mo Brooks in trouble. When President Trump mentioned the vaccine, the crowd erupted in a sharp retort. It appears that if Trump walks out onto Fifth Avenue and tells people to get a vaccination for COVID, his supporters will react harshly against it. Trump cleaned this up by quickly adjusting, saying that he’s in favor of freedom of personal choice on the matter. This rally exposed a small potential fracture in the Trump support, and it can be seen here. Here’s that moment:


I’ve said for some time that this would wind up being a bone of contention between Trump and his supporters.  Frankly, if I were President Trump, I’d start to investigate why this is, and it may not be what he expects.  He might want to look into things like the vaccine injuries and deaths reports being spiked by the media. That’s a good starting point, and I fear this is where Trump risks falling out of step with his supporters. If he cleans this up, and becomes and advocate for his supporters, rather than vaccines of questionable efficacy and safety, he might make new in-roads.

Here’s the entire Trump Speech:


Editor’s Note: President Trump would do well to evaluate the whole vaccine issue, because as more information is becoming available, the vaccines are taking on a more negative tinge, and even a sinister sub-plot has developed. He should remember that big Pharma, no fan of his, developed these vaccines. People who hate him and his supporters developed these vaccines. Neither the FDA or CDC or the current White House is mandating the vaccines on their own staff.  Pfizer isn’t.  Something doesn’t smell right with any of this, and given the “breakthrough” cases and some of the other data coming out of Israel(and elsewhere,) this is ground on which Trump should tread lightly until he figures out all that’s going on.

It’s “For Their Own Good”

Sunday, August 22nd, 2021

Police and Protesters clash in Melbourne Australia

Nothing is more despicable than a government abusing its people. The Australian government, like so many others, is in absolute insurrection against its people on the claim that its lockdown measures are “for their own good.” Think about this: They’re imposing violence, fines, lockdowns, and every sort of bedlam on the people of Australia in order to “save them” from an infection that has a ninety-nine (plus) percent survival rate.  Think about that: In order to “save them,” they’re willing to hammer the Hell out of them. They’re willing to impose poverty and isolation and actual physical harm on the people of their country. Such governments are increasingly the norm, and as I (and many others) predicted two decades ago when the Australian people largely surrendered their right to arms, the object was always totalitarianism.  It always is. If you give government power, or surrender your rights to government, it is only a matter of time until some dirtbag comes to power in government who will use the power or your lack of rights to subjugate the people of the nation. It’s inevitable. This is because humans are imperfect, and foul people sometimes(and all too frequently) are able to come into power.  In fact, I would argue that politicians are frequently the most dangerous people, because they possess an insidious arrogance about their ability to impose their policy preferences on their fellow man.  In Australia now, it’s off the charts. People are joining in open resistance, and they should be.  Tyrants always claim to act on behalf of the public. They always lie about it.

In Melbourne, they’re chanting “Freedom!”


In some instances, Australians are giving notice that they’ve had enough:

These sorts of abuses have begun in America too. So far, they’ve been confined to deep blue locales, like New York City under the rule of Mayor Bill DeBlasio, a.k.a. “DeCommio.” I believe the sole reason they haven’t gone wall-to-wall is because America has something Australia ceded in 1999: The right to own firearms. It is only our Second Amendment that gives the same brand of tyrants pause here in the United States, and it’s my contention that they intend to strip you of these rights before much longer. Folks, if you think they’ve become tyrannical with their lockdowns and mandates already, wait until they strip you of the right to keep and bear arms. They’ve already attacked your ability to get some foreign-made ammunition. That’s not accidental. The price of ammo had begun to slowly drift downward, and while not down to its pre-pandemic prices, it was heading slowly down as supplies increased over the last few months. This week, Biden banned the importation of ammunition from Russia, which is a direct attack on several lower-end brands of ammunition, such as Wolf. I don’t have any evidence, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find that somebody in the Biden administration is heavily invested in some domestic brands. It’s just how they roll.

As the unrest spreads, with France and the UK becoming more volatile by the week, and with Australians finally, belatedly beginning to stand up, and with the globalists pushing their vaccines and masks and lockdowns at an ever-escalating pace, and with ever more naked coercion and aggressive force supporting it, it’s likely to get much worse. Before this is all over, I expect some Western[ized] nation to have a Tiananmen Square type of massacre. As we’ve seen with the surrender of Kabul Afghanistan, history’s worst instances have been repeating themselves in too many ways, also at an accelerating pace.  It’s time for readers to prepare themselves for whatever comes next. It’s not likely to be pretty.

 

 

Shocking Report About Vaccine Injuries and Deaths Being Spiked

Saturday, August 21st, 2021

What the media isn’t telling you…

Like so much else during this “pandemic,” information about vaccine deaths and injuries is being spiked by the government and the mainstream media. They’re lying to you at every level. They’re concealing from you the truth of the matter. The NYTimes reported yesterday that the Pfizer Vaccine will be FDA approved this week, but it’s being done based on fraudulent data, and ignoring all of the normal standards.  The rush to push these vaccines is frightening.  It’s not possible to have actual informed consent under these conditions. Here is WarRoom guest Patrick Wood on the data:

The Looting Has Begun

Thursday, August 19th, 2021

The biggest looters on the planet…

It’s not what you might think, at least not yet. At this moment, there are not bands of thugs roaming the streets of America, smashing windows, taking merchants’ goods, and setting their stores and neighborhoods ablaze.  To be more clear, not yet this summer. Chances are, the people who direct those thugs are saving up for some rainy political day in the not-so-distant future, when they will again deploy their shock-troops against an unsuspecting American people. Besides, most Americans have begun to make plans for such a situation, should it repeat or multiply, having spent the last fifteen months at least arming themselves to the teeth. No, this time, the looters are using a different tactic, and they wear mostly suits and ties. They hang out in places like Davos, or the Senate cloakroom, or over at the White House, or in Beijing.  The looting is now well in progress.  As consumers notice the first prong of the attack, they are now becoming more aware of the set-up that made it possible.  Inflation has begun to spike, but it’s just getting started, despite the misdirection coming out of the Federal Reserve Chairman, who has insisted until now that any inflation would be “transient.” Remembering that they don’t even consider price increases in food and energy as part of the Consumer Price Index, they’re admitting that we’ve already exceeded 5% inflation.  As the Federal Reserve’s printing presses go into overdrive, it’s important for you to know what’s likely to happen, and how you and your country will be looted blind. This isn’t accidental. They’re going to rob you, starve you, freeze you, and kill you. The looting is just a part of the plan, but for the moment, it’s the ugliest part likely in you immediate future. It’s going to result in the impoverishment and deaths of millions. Few of us will be exempt.

As always, they’ll blame it all on capitalism, or Trump, or bad luck, or even incompetence if they must. They’re not preparing you for it, because they know you’ll panic, and then bodily remove them all from elected and appointed offices without delay. They’re banking on our inaction and willingness to go along to get along, and chances are, they’re probably correct. Nothing is more slow to action than a comfortable human, no matter how short-lived such comfort may be. For those not really familiar with the notion of inflation, I’ll try to offer a simplified analogy. If you double the number of dollars in circulation, you halve their value. If there are forty trillion dollars of total wealth in your system, but you print ten trillion more, what you’ve done is effectively reduce the value of the pre-existing wealth by that proportion. Now, you’ve inflated the currency by 25%. If a loaf of bread cost $1.60 before the printing spree, it will now cost you $2.00.  If you do this across the whole economy, you begin to see the problem. Everything costs more as the money is worth less. Think of it another way: If you have a pie, and you cut it into eight slices, each piece of pie is worth 1/8th of the whole. If you instead cut it into 10 slices, now each slice is worth 1/10th of the whole. You haven’t increased the size of the pie(increased its absolute value.) What you’ve done is to reduce the value of a slice from 1/8th to 1/10th of a pie. This is an important concept, because a pie has a fixed nutritional value, so long as you don’t change its size or its ingredients. If the human diet included 1/8th a slice of pie as the daily recommended allowance, what it means is that when you slice the pie into 10 slices, you’re no longer getting the same value per slice in an absolute nutritional sense. In both cases, whether 1/8th, 1/10th, 1/20th, or 1/100th, it’s still going to be called a “slice of pie,” but what that means will shrink in value.  The same would be true in reverse: If you made the pie bigger, or sliced it into fewer pieces, the value of a slice of pie would increase.  Money’s value changes in precisely the same way.

What you can understand from this is that while our economy is producing much less wealth (value) today than it was two years ago, we’re nevertheless printing money as if we were producing the same amount or more. This means the value of your dollar is headed downhill fast. All of those people being paid to sit around doing nothing are adding to the problem in two ways: The first is that we’re borrowing (printing into existence) lots of money to keep them fed, clothed, housed, and medicated, and the second is because they’re not hitting a lick at a snake, they’re producing no value. They’re not building things, servicing things, cooking things, digging ditches, programming computers, answering phones, or whatever it is that they would otherwise be doing to create new value. Those ten million(plus) jobs that aren’t being filled?  They’re creating yet another problem that will drive prices up: Shortages.

In any market, generally speaking, when you have more dollars chasing fewer goods and services, prices will go up. That’s just a fact, and it’s why I detest when politicians scream about “price gouging” during an emergency. In an emergency, the unprepared suddenly find they need generators, gas can, gasoline, batteries, and water. They protest in screeches that it’s unfair that prices go up.  Folks, that is precisely how a free market works.  This is how a market rations scarce goods. This is why an ounce of gold is roughly equal in value to a metric ton of lead. That’s why diamonds are expensive, but cubic zirconium is not. That’s why a mint condition comic book of a particular issue can be virtually priceless.  It’s no different for anything else.

Now that we’ve covered inflation and the basic pricing function in the economy, let’s talk about some ways in which inflation is used to loot those who produce or save wealth. If you’ve not missed a day of work during the pandemic, but your neighbor has sat on his butt, he’s eating out of your pocket, and your wealth, your labor, is being redistributed to him because we’re borrowing into existence(printing) the money on which he’s subsisting.  He’s looting you by proxy.  More, if you’re paying taxes and he is not, more of your wealth is going to support him as he sits on his duff.

The Democrats (and the whole DC Uniparty generally) have no shortage of plots, plans, and schemes to loot you blind. Consider this nonsense about forgiving student loans. All debts are paid. It’s one of the oldest rules of economics. The question is only: Who pays it? Whether the lender writes it off, and his other borrowers pay it in the form of higher interest rates, fees, and so on, or whether the borrower makes the lender whole on time and as contractually obligated, all debts are paid… by somebody. So when the Democrats wish to “forgive the student loan debt” of the fools who unwisely took on debt to defray the costs of an inferior education, one they may not have bothered even to complete, what they’re really saying is that you will pay it. As a taxpayer, you’ll be on the hook, and when they borrow more money into existence(print it) to service the debt on all the money they’re borrowing, again, all the value of your existing money will decline.

Of course, this is yet one more way in which you’re to be looted. Your retirements will be the prime target of looting. I can’t wait until all of these “greedy geezers” on Social Security find that their government check isn’t going as far as it once did. Why? Well, the value of that money is like the value of all money: It’s being looted. Of course, this won’t be restricted simply to Social Security checks. It will also hit every other retirement fund, pension fund, and 401K or other plan. First, the Democrats intend to tax the Hell out of these funds and plans and so on, and of course, the money managers who oversee these funds will be hard-pressed to make the money grow at a rate equal to inflation, because much of what they invest in will soon crash down under the weight of all the dummies sitting on their duffs. Productivity is in a serious slump, and productivity is a driver of the value of equities. The looting will be most extensive here, because when the long bull market finally turns to a bear, there’s going to be a complete catastrophe.  The retirement for which you’ve been scrimping and saving, and the pension into which you’ve been paying for years at your job, all of it will be wrecked. Sure, you may still get the planned number of dollars, maybe, but what those dollars will buy in the market will be in freefall.

I want you to understand that when those nineteen dumb clucks among the Republicans in the US Senate went along with this catastrophic “infrastructure plan,” it’s because they’re going to get in on the looting too. You can bet that in the end, they’ll protect their wealth, of which they’ve accumulated much more through the corruption of our governmental system, and they will be the first to know when things are about to hit the fan, and thus be able to duck safely out of the way.

At the same time, all of the usual looting has been accelerated. Money flying out of this country to useless, fraudulent, corrupt oversees endeavors is on a whole new, nearly vertical, upward slope.  Money is being laundered out of this country at a phenomenal pace as Biden opens the hydrants and sprays cash all over the globe. You can bet that the high price Hunter will be getting from anonymous buyers of his crap-as-art paintings will be part of the kickbacks you’ll never track down.  The Soros crowd, the Davos crowd, and the whole despicable Clinton-Obama foreign policy scam-fest will continue unabated.  They’re the big-ticket looters, and you’ll never disentangle it from the pile of red tape under which it will be buried. They’re looting you blind.

Big pharma is looting you too. These half-baked PCR tests that a.) can’t differentiate between COVID and influenza, and b.) generate false positives at an astounding rate are being paid-for by those with health insurance, or by the government. Guess who’s paying for both? That’s right: You. Then there are the “vaccines” of questionable efficacy, never mind safety, and now they’re talking about the endless string of “boosters” that many critics predicted before the vaccines even became available.  Folks, we’re on the hook for all of it. In the end, we’ll be on the hook for all the injuries and deaths that will result, and those numbers are rapidly mounting. Since they’ve been financed with borrowed money(printed,) yes, these too are driving the inflation as well.

There are many lesser methods of looting that will be employed. The people now in power are basically an organized crime syndicate. They make the mafia look like amateurs. Naturally, in due course, the ordinary form of looting will begin anew, and it’s likely to be much bigger next time. This will be how they cover their “exit,” whatever form that will take. If they have their way, it will more likely be our permanent “exit.”

This is a dangerous time, and I can’t stress enough to you how you, my long-time readers, must take such measures as needed to prepare. I know that preparations have limits, but remember to take care of yourselves in order of urgency: Self-defense, water, food, medicines, shelter, clothing. It may be a long time before the looting ends, and through it all, you will get poorer and poorer, and your situation more desperate. Bond together with reliable neighbors, family, and close friends. Be good to one another. It may get very ugly, and it may stay that way for a long, long time.

 

Editor’s Note: For those unaware, you should see what’s going on in South Africa. The media has largely put a black-out on all of it:

Killing Your Children

Sunday, August 15th, 2021

The Heart of the Matter

Yesterday, I brought to you the story about the damage being done to the IQs of babies. Now, I bring you information you must have about the cardiac health of your children and young adults due to the spike proteins. Watch the video below. It’s shocking, and we must stop the vaxxing of anybody under thirty now, most especially children. The fact that your children’s hearts are under attack must get your attention now.  There’s no excuse for more pissing around with this. Again, watch this video from Stew Peters via Rumble and draw your conclusions, but in my mind, this is #FullStop

I’m convinced that it’s time for Tribunals for Crimes Against Humanity.

 

Twitter’s Just Reward

Tuesday, January 12th, 2021

TwitNazis

Mr. L makes a good point, as usual. In this case, he’s pointed out that there were roughly 85-90 million followers of Donald Trump before Twitter unceremoniously dumped him with highly dubious and/or false justifications. More, they covered-up his video, moments after leaving his speech, upon hearing there was trouble at the Capitol, in which he told his audience to remain peaceful and go home. Twitter is part of the Neo-Nazi gulag being created for us, and it is time to abandon it. Rather than trickle away, or wait to be banned for saying something some algorithm or some leftist TwitNazi decides is wrongspeak, it’s best that we chose the day of our exit. Mr. L suggested that somebody noteworthy lead that movement. Clearly, I’m nobody noteworthy, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a suggestion. Here’s Mr. L’s(language warning):

Joe Biden is scheduled to be inaugurated at Noon, Eastern time, on January the 20th. I suggest that at that time, users all across the country delete or deactivate their Twitter accounts forever.  Whomever leads this, I’m good with it. I’ve seen fully one-fourth of my followers disappear. I’ve been locked-out multiple times for bogus, specious reasons. It’s time that this rabid dog of a platform be Old-Yellered. We have that power.

Lindsey Graham Gets the Just Recognition He Deserves (Video)

Friday, January 8th, 2021

One More DC Dirt-Bag

I never advocate violence on this site, even when these scumbags in DC really anger me. Given the way the Republican Party has treated Donald Trump over the last four years, misrepresenting us, betraying us, and otherwise sabotaging the President we elected, they should never be permitted to walk down the streets without being shamed for the dirtbags they are. None of them. All of these dirtbag insiders now abandoning the President and otherwise continuing this coup against Donald Trump that’s never stopped over the course of four years, and has always had the nodding support of the Republican establishment must find themselves dealt with by us in a non-violent but aggressively loud manner wherever they go. This goes back to McCain calling the Tea Party “Hobbits” and all the other contempt the McConnell crowd offered to citizens rising up to complain. This includes the consultancy and think-tank class with their bottomless pit of haughty, smarmy, dripping revulsion at we “Deplorables.”

This isn’t about Donald Trump. I have some things to say about him that I will get to in due course, but not now. I’m not going to abandon the man on the field while all of these closet corrupto-crats go scurrying off the ship, damning him as they go. No sir. Instead, from here on out, I’m going to give them the just recognition they deserve, to the extent they deserve it.

That’s almost every Republican in the US Senate, most of the Republican Governors(with just a few noteworthy exception already well-known to you,) and a goodly proportion of the Republicans in the House. There are also all the members of the Federal judiciary who failed to uphold the constitution, many of whom we fought to see seated, who must be similarly treated. This must never end, so long as they remain in office/power. Here is this despicable weasel, Lindsey Graham(R-SC,) escorted by a squad of police for whom WE PAY while mostly blissfully ignoring the protests blooming around him(Explicit Language):

https://twitter.com/iheartmindy/status/1347616155394043904

Can anybody tell me why Twitter feels obliged to slap these stupid, dishonest warnings on tweets? At this point, it’s like a CLICK MAGNET.

Of course, this says nothing of our overt enemies. Their time to face our contempt and derision is nigh, too.

It also includes all the media bastards, all of the various local officials, and from this day forward, none of these people need to be able to walk down the street without scorn and derision loudly heaped upon them.

These people think we’ll back down. That’s NOT happening.

To buttress that point, Mr. L(Explicit Language):

The Present Death of the Republican Party

Thursday, January 7th, 2021

The Dagger of Brutus Comes Out

They couldn’t wait to withdraw their objections.  In the Senate, they fell over one another to find microphones to declare their separation from President Trump and his supporters.  They claimed to be doing so in the name of the Republican Party, but the truth, yet to be fully revealed, is likely to be something quite different.  One by one, they came forward to stick knives in the President’s back, and it started with Vice President Pence.  From there, the opportunity presented by the chaos in the Capitol became their excuse.  It provided a convenient escape-chute for the bulk of Republican senators, and a number of lackluster Republicans in the House.  Most disgustingly, Kelly Loeffler(R-GA) who lost re-election only the morning before, and who had pledged her objection to Georgia voters only the weekend before, stood in the well of the Senate to say that she could not pursue her objection despite all that had been done in her own state to corrupt this election, including her own.  The idea that the brief outbreak of violence by unidentified instigators at the Capitol justifies the withdrawal of the objection is preposterous: One had nothing to do with the other, and to create such linkage reveals more about the dubious motives of the Senators and Representatives who did so. The truth lies not so much in the fact that they betrayed Donald Trump, but that they betrayed us. This act of cowardice among Republicans is evidence that rather than fight, the majority of Republicans decided to commit political murder-suicide, and with extreme prejudice, dealing a death-blow to the Republican Party in early morning hours of January 7th, 2021.

Here’s Loeffler knifing Georgians, Donald Trump, and indeed, all Americans in the back:

Naturally, Lindsey Graham(R-SC) couldn’t wait for his moment to swoop in from circling the carcass:

Most of us have known that the Senate, particularly, is full of RINOs.  The House too, is polluted with them. They never wanted Trump to be president, and they were only too happy to toss him overboard at the first rolling wave. Over the past four years, or even five, the Republican Party has done its best to placate its grass roots with tepid, halting support of Donald Trump. Only a relative few in the party have ever embraced the president chosen by the “deplorables,” a characterization of Trump supporters first offered by Hillary Clinton, but also expressed in the equivalent words and attitudes of such Republican turncoats as John McCain(deceased) and Mitt Romney(R-UT.)  Overnight, Kelly Loeffler spoke of her good conscience. This from a woman who promised the electorate of Georgia literally hours before that she would object, and who, with a classified briefing last year about the exploding pandemic, engaged in clear insider trading on that information to the tune of millions of dollars. What conscience has she demonstrated? This is the sort of Republican Mitch McConnell and his ilk have given us, and she’s exactly the sort of Republican who has killed the party.

I don’t know whether the remedy can any longer be to attempt to take over the GOP. I say this because the Tea Party attempted that, and while there had been some early success, particularly in 2010, the truth is that they came under harsh attack from the Republicans in the Senate, who conspired with Obama to undermine them, abuse them, and otherwise subvert their cause.  I think the Republican Party is so thoroughly filled with these DC insiders that we cannot rely upon them in any measure any longer.  I think the better alternative may finally be to form a new party, make its platform known, and carefully select and vet its candidates. This will not be easy, but none of the option we face are easy, but for surrender and subjugation. Demoralized though I may be, I have no interest in simply throwing-up my hands in submission to this monstrosity. To the degree these RINOs have committed electoral suicide, I assert that we must walk away from them with fervent resolve. There is no future in a Republican Party that treats its voters in this fashion, or abandons its toughest political fighters when the going gets tough. I am no longer willing to spend even one thin dime to support these people, and I think it’s important that we make a stand by abandoning them.

Vice President Mike “Pontius” Pence was the most cowardly and despicable of all.  He actually contended that he was being asked to set aside electoral votes, but that is not what he had been asked to do.  Instead, he was asked to send the matter back to the six or seven state legislatures in question, and indeed, a number of those legislatures had asked that he do so.  This is not so extreme a proposition as he pretended, but more, I believe he never had Donald Trump’s back.  From my perspective, I think in the eyes of many, he may have been the real “insurance policy” Strzok and Page discussed in their chain of treasonous texts. It’s been clear for a long while that Pence was never really fully aboard the Trump train, and his connections in Washington DC are all of the BushCo/RINO strain.

Now, at this late hour, Chuck Schumer(D-NY) is calling for the use of the 25th amendment to remove President Trump, and impeachment if that effort fails.

These people are despicable. They no longer wish to simply see him out of office, but to destroy him forever more.

We must get beyond these people, and I no longer believe the Republican Party can serve as the conduit for our dissatisfaction. In point of fact, they’ve too often obstructed the will of the people. I don’t know how to build a new political party and movement, but I’m willing to begin. I’d enjoy reading comments from readers who might offer suggestions. In some form or fashion, this must be an America First party, and it’s clear that the Republican party cannot serve as its home.

Biden Corruption Exposed: Joe Took HALF

Thursday, October 15th, 2020

Rudy Drops Bomb on Joe Biden

In an amazing exposition of the kind of corruption with which Joe Biden has been augmenting his lifestyle for years, here we see how swamp creatures are able to get filthy-rich while holding public office. Rudy Guliani, who has obtained a copy of the hard-drive from the abandoned computer turned over to the FBI, shows a text between Hunter and Naomi Biden(Hunter’s daughter.) In the text, Hunter reveals that “Pop”(Joe) required him to hand over half his salaries, and the implication is that this had been going on for 30 years.

I love all of you. But I don’t receive any respect and thats fine I guess -works for you apparently. Hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family Fro 30 years. It’s really hard. But don’t worry unlike Pop I won’t make you give me half your salary. -Hunter Biden

I want you to think about the kind of corruption this represents. I also want you to ask yourself how many other people in Washington DC have done an continue to do exactly the same sort of thing.  Here, as Rudy explains, we have a crime family, of which Joe is the head, and he’s using his position and authority in government to make his family wealthy, from which he receives a cut. If you want to know how people go to Washington DC with relatively modest net wealth, but leave town(if ever they do) with vast fortunes, Joe Biden is an exemplar of the method. This corruption is absolutely despicable, and Joe Biden is a bona fide criminal.

Here’s the video of Rudy introducing the subject as is currently posted on his website:

We Must Remove Them All

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

Do We Deserve the Country They Built?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sunday, September 27th, 2020

The Pre-Election Death of RBG Threatens the Democrat Plot

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

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

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

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


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

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.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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

Thursday, April 25th, 2019

It’s about to get real…

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

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

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

We Must Not Let Anything Go

Wednesday, April 10th, 2019

Time to Face the Music

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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