The Electric Vehicle Scam

Warped Perception?

“It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” – Mark Twain

If you have a degree in the hard sciences, you already know what I’m about to discuss. There’s no such thing as a free lunch, and there’s no such thing as perpetual motion machines.  If you want to do work of any kind, it requires energy.  One must create that energy, or at least convert it from another form, in order to do that work.  Most forms of energy production we do are chemical transformations of some sort.  When you eat food, your body chemically decomposes the meal into a form it can use to drive your muscles, and keep circulating your blood, and so on.  When you pour gasoline into your fuel tank, and it goes forward into your engine, where it’s ignited and turned into a forceful combustion, to push pistons that reciprocate, turning your crankshaft and so on, you’re also doing a chemical transformation.  When you store energy in a battery cell, then retrieving it to drive your electric motor(s), you’re again doing a chemical transformation, in reverse of the sort of chemical transformation that occurred when you charged the batteries.  Before you could charge the battery, however, the current with which you charged it had to be generated somewhere, and in a few cases, that was accomplished by nuclear reactions, or thermal, wind, solar and hydroelectric power generation, but throughout the world, the main source is through the burning of some sort of fuel in another chemical transformation into power to generate electricity.  This is reality, and even(and especially) Elon Musk knows it.  This poses a serious problem for the scam artists.  They can fool you on the front end, but in the long run, you’ll eventually convince yourself that you’ve been fooled.  Electric vehicles, as they’re being proposed to consumers, are a complete, utter scam, and every serious scientist knows it, and every engineer understands it.

I want you to watch the video below.  It’s just less than sixteen minutes, but it’s worth it.  I don’t know whether he’s exposing insanity or possibly suffering from it.  There are important lessons to be garnered here, but most importantly, you can finally put to rest the insanity of the electric vehicle scam.

The gentleman who made this video seems earnest enough.  My point here is not to criticize him, personally, but to confront what this video lays bare about electric vehicles.  His chief complaint with his Tesla EV seems to be that he doesn’t like the lengthy charging sessions, or the lack of availability of charging stations, but he also mentions his dislike of stopping to refuel a gasoline car.  i suppose he wants a forever-mobile, a kind of perpetual motion machine, that requires no charging, no refueling, and presumably, no maintenance or much of anything else.  He wants to be able to get in and drive until he’s ready to stop, to re-commence his travels at any time he pleases.  Who wouldn’t like that?

Obviously, he’s noticed that his Tesla requires recharging ‒ lots and lots of recharging.  If he only drove a few miles per day, he might well be able to subsist with his Tesla, at least until the very large, very expensive battery inevitably dies permanently, no longer able to be re-charged.  His solution here is to take a generator, driven by a 13HP gasoline engine, install it under the hatch of his car, in the area usually called “the trunk.”  Along with this, he’s also installed a gasoline tank, and all the plumbing and wiring to make this work.  He removed his rear window, created a weather-exposed zone in his trunk, hooking it all up so that the generator will charge his Tesla’s batteries, even while riding down the road, thereby extending his range, and giving himself a built-in charger.  I’ve seen others try similar approaches by simply pulling a small trailer with a generator bolted-down, accomplishing the same thing, but adding the problems associated with a trailer. I’ve seen others put a portable generator in the trunk that they can simply pull out and run to re-charge the car if they completely discharge between charging stations, but that cannot be run going down the road.

In the video, he takes this contraption on an 1800 mile journey of several days, the goal being never to stop for a charge.  Along the way, he stopped by a friend’s house, a friend who has a jet engine mounted on a pontoon boat(and I’d urge his friend to rethink the simple flat screen guard on that engine,) but a couple of things become apparent through the course of the video:

  • His generator is insufficient to keep up with his Tesla’s power consumption at highway speeds.
  • He is forced to refuel his “Cordless Tesla” several times, probably daily.
  • He has this noisy contraption running everywhere he goes, and must leave it running overnight while he sleeps in hotels.
  • It’s so noisy that people call the police.
  • The police stop him once because he’s driving too slowly on the highway as he attempted to match consumption to his insufficient generation.

While he was considerate enough to park it well away from the hotels so that it probably wasn’t too annoying to guests, he stopped at one restaurant, and I’m pretty certain that if I had been the owner of said eatery, I’d have asked him to shut it down while he dined.  At the end, he summarized his experience, and also displayed the mileage his “Cordless Tesla” was getting:

This is not MPGE, but actual mileage at the speeds listed

With all of this said and done, at the completion of his trip, he notes the shortcomings, and since along the way, he visited a Kohler Engines facility, I can only imagine that he intends to install an even larger generator in an attempt to improve his results.  What he may achieve is to extend his duration, but what he will not change is the left-hand column on the chart above, except perhaps to worsen it with a larger, heavier generator installed.  A larger generator will likely necessitate a larger fuel tank or severely reduced expectations, but what I must say is that I truly want to congratulate him.

He’s built an undisguised fossil-fuel-powered Tesla EV.

He undertook this project apparently to address the shortcomings of his Tesla, and all EVs in general.  What he succeeding in doing is to prove that only larger internal combustion engines can actually accomplish his desired outcome.  He still has the fuel stops.  He still has the noise(much more, actually.) He has a doubling of the expense. He still has a giant battery pack that when it dies, will cost more than his eventual final generator, fuel tank, plumbing, and wiring, and he’s still burning so-called fossil fuels for the pleasure.  I don’t think his rig would be legal in California, either for the noise, or for the fact that they’re banning all outdoor gas-powered equipment like chainsaws and lawn-mowers and generators, so not much use there.  And then there’s this:

My last long trip in our 2013 Ford F350 Crew-cab, diesel 4WD truck was around 1250 miles each way.  On the highway, I averaged 70-75mph, depending on the speed limits, of course, but on that trip, the diesel truck managed to get 19.3 MPG.  I stopped twice for fuel, each way, topping-off a little before hitting the road for the return trip.  At roughly the half-way point on the way home, after topping off, my range said 647 miles.  Of course, it also sips diesel exhaust fluid.  That’s a truck that likely weighs well beyond double what the diminutive Tesla weighs.  I made the same trip a couple years before in my Mustang GT, which is probably closer to the same weight.  I averaged, well, let’s say “the same speed.” In that car, I managed 23.7 MPG, though in honesty, if I’d made more judicious use of my accelerator pedal, I might have done somewhat better.  The point is, neither of the vehicles I mention are “fuel misers.”

The truth of all of this is that you can’t hide from reality in the end.  Physics is.  Chemistry is.  Math is.  Some people need to spend a good deal more time at all three.  The truth, however, is more plain when it’s undisguised.  That’s the one thing this gentleman, the owner of the Youtube channel Warped Perception has fully exposed.  I’m not sure if that had been his motive, but if so, he’s succeeded.  His other Youtube channel is called Matt’s Lab, where he describes himself this way: “I’m an Engineer, lover of Science and Mechanics and also a Filmmaker.” If he’s an actual engineer, he surely knows all of this, but again, that may have been his point:  All EVs are at least in part powered by fossil fuels.  That’s because the electricity being generated elsewhere to charge the EV is probably burning fossil fuels.  You can’t escape it.  The idea that we can replace internal combustion engines in any practical sense with EVs is simply madness.  In his attempt to make his Tesla EV more practical, what he’s done is to simply unmask the whole EV scam.

The one thing that actually is more efficient about his mobile power-generation, at least theoretically, lies in the fact that there aren’t many miles of cabling between the source of the energy and its destination in the Tesla’s batteries.  You see, much energy is lost in the transportation of energy because of a little thing called “resistance.”  Measured in Ohms, it’s a measure of how much impedance a given current encounters while traversing a given conductor or device.  Rubber is a very poor conductor, which is why it’s often used as an insulator on cabling, while copper and gold are excellent conductors, as are most metals.  Aluminum is common in transmission lines, but one of the problems with aluminum is that it has higher resistance to current than copper, but because it’s lighter and much cheaper, it’s used there.  Chances are, the power cable that runs from the transformer on the pole near your home is aluminum.  In any event, for every mile and foot of cable between the power plant and your home, energy is being bled-out by this resistance in the form of heat and electromagnetic radiation.  It’s one of the costs of an extensive, lengthy distribution grid.  You’re bleeding energy all the way from the source to its point of use.  In this sense, his “Cordless Tesla” exposes another problem people don’t understand in this discussion generally:  In most instances, it is far more efficient to generate power where it’s being used, rather than to generate it at a distance, transmit it over miles of cable, through transformers, and ultimately into a chemical storage device(battery) from which it will be again transformed back into current on demand.  At each transformation along its path, and in the process of storing it and then pulling it from storage, there is a certain amount of loss built into each step.

He could make his generation more efficient by getting an even larger generator, and just driving the electric motors directly from the generator. To get the acceleration he sees now, however, he’d need a really large generator to produce the bursts of current he’d need, and transformers, as well as more weight and more fuel.  At that point, he’d be better off simply getting rid of the generator, keeping the motor, and hooking it directly to his transmission, and then do you know what he’d have?  A standard gasoline-powered car.  In the end, you have a vehicle just like the ones we’ve been driving for generations.  Problem solved.  Genius!

The most efficient solution that would also be as practical as gasoline or diesel engine is something else entirely, assuming you’re dead-set on getting rid of fossil fuels:  Hydrogen.  You can even keep the internal combustion engines.  All you need is hydrogen, which is in every molecule of water on Earth.  The problem is storing it.  You can derive hydrogen by simply using an electrical process to split the water molecule into its constituents, using electrical current.  The tricky part is that hydrogen in any quantity is quite combustible, and explosive.  There are methods for storing hydrogen that would be completely safe, or at least as safe as gasoline.  If the society used primarily nuclear power, augmented by wind, solar, geothermal, and hydroelectric, the problem becomes much easier to address.  You could have a hydrogen station anywhere you have a supply of water and electricity, which means they could be as widely distributed as gasoline, diesel, and other fossil-fuels. Gas stations would be replaced/upgraded to hydro-electrolysis stations.  The best news is that the exhaust from your car would be heat and water vapor. Quick fill-ups, back on the road in minutes, with the convenience and range to which you’re accustomed, with the added benefit of a mostly clean exhaust stream, all of which could be yours without the EV scam, and reliance on China for rare Earth minerals and the ecological catastrophe of battery disposal for the cells used by EVs. You’d still need your common lead-acid batteries, just like the ones you use now, but that’s not an obstacle.

People buying into the Electric Vehicles are being scammed.  There are many hidden costs people don’t yet see, although the impracticability of these EVs becomes pretty plain to most folks who buy them.  Early indicators are that many people who buy one EV are unlikely to buy a second. This is a bit like Biden voters: Having chosen him once, many aren’t apt to do so again. Obviously then, while it’s harder to convince people they’ve been fooled than it had been to fool them in the first instance, it’s clear that one’s wallet is a powerful persuader.

The CDC Attacks American Children

Sunday, October 23rd, 2022

CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices votes to jab your kids with mRNA

In a unanimous vote of the CDC panel, they voted to add the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines to the schedule of vaccines for children.  This is undeniably a horrible decision, and what makes it worse is that they know the harm these vaccines produce in children, versus the vanishingly small risk to children from the virus itself.  I previously covered the horrible idea of mandating these vaccines for children when politicians wanted to do it, but now they’ve got their hired, bought-and-paid-for, corrupt goons at the CDC doing their bidding for them.  This way, the politicians can say: “Oh, the experts at the CDC did it.”  Already in Florida, Governor DeSantis has said the CDC vote will have no effect in that state, and Kari Lake is promising to prohibit such a thing in Arizona if she’s elected.  The worst part of the motive here is likely worse than you’re imagining. In point of fact, by adding these vaccines to the children’s schedule, what they’ve really done is to protect the manufacturers from any lawsuit.  This effectively means it’s automatically applied to adults as well as children in terms of liability.  If you’ve been injured, or lost a loved-one to these vaccines, you’ll have no recourse against the manufacturers.  They acted on behalf of Big Pharma.  They did it to profit the pharmaceutical companies at the expense of the health and lives of your children and grandchildren, by protecting them from legal liability.

It’s clear that these vaccines should be withdrawn from the market entirely, never mind finding approval for use in children:

 

Here, Bannon’s War Room covers the implications with Dr. McCullough:

Also, Dr. Malone, in the War Room:

Folks need to wake up before they’re tricked into poisoning their children.  I should have realized when I posted about the recklessness of politicians mandating vaccines on children that they would seek another path.  It’s clear that they don’t care if they harm your kids.  They may even want to harm your children.  Whether it’s intended purely to get Big Pharma off the hook, or also to pursue their depopulation agenda, the fact of the matter is that they know these mRNA vaccines are harmful to everybody, but particularly children.  Here’s the response from Governor DeSantis. If your governor isn’t doing the same, you need to ask why:


These people need to be stripped of power.  It’s time for you to volunteer to man the polls, to watch over our voting process, and to get out and engage your friends, neighbors, and relatives to get them to the polls.  We’re running out of time to save this country.  Protect your children.  Tell your adult children so they will protect your grandchildren.  Nobody deserves a monstrous government like this. Nobody.

 

 

I Stand With Bannon (Post with Video)

Friday, July 22nd, 2022

In this video interview with Tucker Carlson on Friday evening, after his conviction on two counts of “contempt of Congress,” Bannon said the essential thing about the truth of this case, and I stand with him.

Bannon isn’t backing down. He’s not backing up. I love the attitude, and it explains why despite the complaints of some, he was a good fit at Breitbart. If you don’t understand why I’d say that, let me remind you:

I love an intelligent fighter willing to get down in the gutter with the slimeballs sent against us.  Like Bannon, I support Trump, and I support the Constitution, and I’m not backing down either. We are now in a war for the republic.  It’s not yet gone kinetic, and we all wish to avoid that, but if you’re still sitting on the sidelines, you’d better decide soon whether you’re going to side with the DC Mafia that has betrayed our constitution and our people, or whether you’re going to stand with those fighting to preserve what our founders brought forth onto this land.  It’s time to get into the fight now, like never before.  All assets are being deployed against us.  The coup is consolidating in our national capital, and if we let it take up easy residence too long, it will be permanent. They’re wrecking our country as we look on.

The Plot to Steal the Mid-Terms of 2022

Friday, May 13th, 2022

Few even know what’s coming

Knowing they must hold onto the House and Senate in order to complete their coup d’etat, the Democrats and their RINO cohorts in the DC Mafia have concocted a plot so diabolical that it may only be prevented by immediate action of Americans.  Once in place, I don’t think it will be undone without force of arms.  You are in the midst of a color revolution disguised as an election.  They stole 2020, and they’ve been hardening their defenses as they secure their actual insurrection against any sort of insurgency, whether political or otherwise.  It’s worse than despicable.  They intend to use our own system of government to completely supplant our system of government.  This is what securing a coup looks like.

The Biden administration has proposed amendments to the World Health Assembly treaty that formed the World Health Organization(WHO.) These amendments will be voted into place by the assembly next week, and they will use these amendments to empower the WHO to make public health policies in all the signatory countries.  This will permit them to impose lockdowns, mask mandates, vaccine mandates, and pretty much anything else they wish to impose forcibly without reference to the US constitution, and without the ability of states’ governors to intervene or otherwise interfere.  Yes, the blue helmets may be coming to give you your jab.  The main intention here is to enable them to impose lockdowns when the “mid-terms variant” arrives as planned later this year.  This will be the basis for declaring a new set of emergencies, and of course, it will be the foundation for their next election steal.  The drop-boxes will be back with a vengeance, and they may even impose some kind of maniacal martial law in order to force their use.  They’re going to steal it while you watch, helpless to oppose them.

Ordinarily, the adoption of a new treaty would require a 2/3s vote of the United States Senate.  Naturally, their work-around here is to pretend they’re simply amending an existing treaty, and therefore don’t need Senate ratification.  It’s a lie, like everything else they’ve done.  They even held a phony “comment” session this morning, two hours long, with hand-selected shills.  Michele Bachmann had registered to comment, but in the end, they only let approved persons representing various select groups to comment on the amendments.  This is a scam.

Here’s a segment with Bachmann from Bannon’s WarRoom this morning:


Understand that all of this is being done with the purpose of destroying your ability to unseat their cabal this Fall.  This is about securing the coup d’etat they carried out on November 3rd, 2020.  This is why you haven’t heard about this on any of the MSM, including Foxnews.  This is why #2000Mules is still being suppressed.  It’s time to embrace the suck.  The demons in our DC Mafia have a plan, and they’re getting ready to execute it.  This set of treaty amendments is one of the key prerequisites.

 

Putting Lipstick on the Globalist Mafia’s Ukrainian Pig

Information Cartel Carries Water for George Soros

I listen to some mainstream media because one ought to know what the talking-points and narrative of the day will be that one must confront and break through to see the truth.  Now that it’s clear that there are only a handful of shows anywhere that will tell you anything like the truth, it’s time we start cleaning this mess up to the degree we are able.  The reports I am seeing and hearing in mainstream media suggest that “Putin is desperate,” and he’s “increasingly isolated” or “becoming unhinged.”  If you’re seeing these same reports, let me suggest to you that you carefully pay attention to the motives behind those telling you these things.  Of course, none of us are on the ground in Ukraine, so it’s hard to know with any precision what is true, but the thing you can assume is that the first reports of any event are going to be mostly false.  There is propaganda from both sides of the war, but Western media has decided to go “all in” on whatever propaganda the Ukrainian side prefers.  Putin is a monster, they tell you, and I have no doubt that from certain perspectives, he is.  On the other hand, you should know that there are plenty of monsters to go around in Ukraine, and many of them are not Russian.  Some of the worst monsters in the situation in Ukraine are people like Victoria Nuland, and the people she represents.  If you were thinking that as a Deputy Secretary of State, she represents the people of the United States, you’re tragically mistaken.  She represents the real enemy of the American people.  Ukraine is not what you’re being told, and no amount of lipstick applied to this pig of a situation can possibly conceal the truth.

The other problem in Ukraine is that most Americans don’t know the first thing about that corrupt buffer-state in Eastern Europe.  Many don’t know anything about its history, or how it came to the situation in which it now finds itself.   Portrayed in the West as purely the victim of Russian aggression, Americans are expected to believe the bilge the media spews, without ever noticing that the country of Ukraine has extensive problems that pre-date, and indeed have contributed to, the invasion you’re now witnessing.  I can’t possibly recount here all the history of Ukraine, and particularly the history that plays a thorough role in what you’re now witnessing.  What I can tell you is that some people have tried to document some of it, including sometimes mad-cap film-maker Oliver Stone.  While I don’t agree with many of the conclusions he seems to reach, he does a fair job explaining the side of this argument you haven’t heard, and that makes this documentary worth watching.  Made in 2016, long before the current crisis, Ukraine On Fire documents much of the history of the Ukrainian problem, told from a point of view that seems somewhat sympathetic to the Russian position.  Still, even with the bias, it’s interesting that so few Americans know anything of the opposing arguments, but have heard the Western position twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week, since the beginning of this crisis:


As I said, I can’t endorse everything that Stone presents, at least in the manner he presents it, but there are some very important takeaways that Americans must recognize as true upon deeper reflection upon their own experiences.  For instance, in the Summer of 2020, you witnessed the beginning of a color revolution in America, and had Trump been re-elected, you would have experienced its full fury.  Notice that groups like BLM and Antifa, responsible for nearly all of the mayhem that rocked the United States in the run-up to the Presidential election, employed tactics like those of the revolutionaries in Ukraine in 2013-14.  In point of fact, the same people funded it, pushed it, assisted, aided, and abetted it.  Had Donald Trump been re-elected rather than having been cheated out of a second term, the same basic approach was going to be used to depose him as had been used to remove Yanukovych in the so-called “Revolution of Dignity.”  People who watched the entire affair in the wake of George Floyd’s death will see the similarities.  Understand that the same group of people who caused the Ukrainian President to flee to safety in Russia in 2014 were intent upon doing the same to Trump in 2020 or 2021, had he been re-elected.

Once you realize that similar tactics were employed, right down to the martyrs who were mere useful idiots of the protests, you realize that there were more similarities than you’d otherwise dare to suspect.  The corporate media represents a particular view, and where there is insufficient corporate media, it was created in real time to support the revolutionaries.  We saw some of this here, with a proliferation of Youtube Channels the purpose of which seemed to have been to assist the coordination of BLM and Antifa anarchists.  Big Tech is neck deep in all of this.  They repeatedly tell you they’re ‘defending Democracy’ while they simultaneously do everything they can to undermine it.  What else could be the meaning of Mark Zuckerberg spending hundreds of millions of dollars in 2020 to influence the outcome of the election, or now, to assist Ukraine by permitting for the calls for violence and incitement against Russians on the Meta/Facebook platform?  Do you realize yet how you’re being set up, again?  Zuckerberg’s organization helped spread the word and assisted the Coup-plotters in Ukraine in 2014, and they did the same with BLM/Antifa in 2020 here in the US.   George Soros spent millions in Ukraine, as he’s spending millions more now, but the way he spends it is most important:  He uses seed money directly in the target country, while bribing politicians with indirect support, in order to get them to spend billions on his pet projects in the US and abroad.

When you listen to Foxnews and the panel tells Newt Gingrich essentially to shut up about George Soros, you know the fix is in. Here’s a reminder of how that went down:

This is the sort of stifling that has happened with contrary information about SARs-CoV2, the COVID vaccines, Hunter Biden’s laptop(s,) and now Ukraine.  The information you’re being permitted to see and hear is only approved information in most cases.  People are now talking about how Putin is isolating his people from information, but that’s a two-way street.  Western governments are likewise isolating their own populations from information.  Why do you really think Trump was kicked-off Twitter and Facebook and Instagram?  Why do you think Parler was submarined by the Big Tech oligarchs who control Apple, Google and Amazon Web Services?  All of it is about limiting the information to which you have access.  Dan Bongino likes to play the Soviet National Anthem when talking about the Big Tech oligarchs for this very reason.  He’s lived it.  Indeed, the Stone documentary above was kicked off Youtube to prevent you from seeing it.  This is a clear indicator of how dangerous these people think certain information is to their plans.

Do you really believe George Soros only seeks to influence elections in the US?  He uses his money to help foment “color revolutions” around the globe, and one of the ways in which he uses these revolutions is to profit from them.  Soros made the bulk of his wealth wrecking currencies.  At this moment, Soros is in the process of an all-out attack on Russia’s Ruble, and he has the complicity of the United States and most of the EU in so doing.  Recently, Soros published an op-ed that called for regime-change in both Russia and China.  He remains entirely dishonest and misleading. Here’s one example:

“In July 2021, Putin published a long essay arguing that Russians and Ukrainians are really one people, and that the Ukrainians have been misled by neo-Nazi agitators. The first part of his argument is not without some historical justification, given that Kyiv was the original seat of the Russian Orthodox Church. But in the second part, it was Putin who was misled. He ought to have known better. Many Ukrainians fought valiantly during the Euromaidan protests in 2014.“(empahasis mine.)

The statement “Many Ukrainians fought valiantly during the Euromaidan protests in 2014” makes it seem as though Soros is an outsider simply observing these events, but the truth you already know from the Stone documentary above, from other articles previously published on this site, and from other sources:  George Soros was up to his neck in the 2014 protests that ultimately became a coup d’etat in Ukraine.  This is not open to debate.  That this was manned by people flying the neo-Nazi symbols of WWII collaborators of Western Ukraine is not a mistake.  Even now, the so-called Azov battalion are augmenting Ukrainian forces.  Their roots lie in the deep history of Ukraine along with the color revolution that Soros spawned in 2014.  Color revolutions are what Soros does, and it’s part of his mechanism for generating new wealth.  With the influence he now owns in the US, he basically now considers the US mostly a matter of “Mission Accomplished.”

He goes on a bit before concluding, but I’d like to you to consider the sort of bilge Soros here asks you to swallow:

“Meanwhile, Xi seems to have realized that Putin has gone rogue. On March 8, one day after Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi had insisted that the friendship between China and Russia remained “rock solid,” Xi called French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to say that he supported their peacemaking efforts. He wanted maximum restraint in the war in order to avert a humanitarian crisis.”(emphasis mine.)

Who here believes, having learned about the plight of the Uyghurs in China could become convinced that Xi is even remotely concerned with averting any humanitarian crisis anywhere on Earth?

He concludes with this gem, and there’s a tell in here if you pay close attention to what this madman actually believes:

“It is far from certain that Putin will accede to Xi’s wishes. We can only hope that Putin and Xi will be removed from power before they can destroy our civilization.”(emphasis mine.)

A casual reader might be led by this statement to believe with the use of “our civilization” that Soros is talking about the traditional Western civilization you and I consider “ours.” Nothing could be further from the truth.  Soros didn’t write this as an opinion piece to be consumed by you and I.  Instead, this is an order sent out publicly to his minions around the globe, and his message is clear: Take out Putin and Xi because “our civilization” is endangered, but by “ours,” he does not mean yours and mine.  He’s talking about the vast criminal enterprise he and his coterie of corrupt globalist politicians have put in place to dominate the world.  He’s saying it in the open, even though he’s using veiled language.  More, in the beginning of the article, he confesses having set up another of his NGOs in Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and in each of the former Soviet states, including Ukraine.

What has happened these last twenty or so years is that Soros has been booted-out of most of these countries, because Putin quickly realized that Soros was slowly but surely intent on driving color revolutions in each and every one of these former Soviet republics, including eventually Russia.  This has been the base of operations for vast global political corruption, not merely in the former Soviet republics in question, but reaching their tentacles across the globe, including particularly Europe and the United States, but also in Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and South America.  Soros’ network of organized gangsters is global.  While Vladimir Putin remains a dangerous murderer, it makes a great deal of sense to understand a bit of where his mind is.  You’re not being told this, because on balance, most Americans would firmly plant their feet onto the solid ground of “not my monkey, not my circus,” refusing to play along with the latest of Soros’ global power plays.  At worst, you might even call for the United States to abandon that sphere forever, and there’s simply too much cash to be had there.  How do you think Mitt Romney and Joe Biden and a whole laundry-list of other American and Western politicians are so deeply entrenched in the goings-on in Ukraine, of all places?  While certainly not on “our side,” meaning yours or mine, Putin is more like the enemy of my enemy, not with respect to the people of Ukraine, but of their actual attackers over the last two decades who have used them as guinea pigs for the biological and pharmaceutical research that’s been conducted with the willing “consent” of these desperately poor people.

These Western profiteers, whether Soros, or the American or European politicians, and the large corporations who have been raping Ukraine for two decades do not want the gravy train to end.  Back in January, they got another setback to “[their] civilization” when a color revolution they helped to foment was stopped in Kazakhstan.  In a way, this contributed to their current desperation to hurt Putin in Ukraine.  Their money laundries are being closed down.  If you wonder what’s going on, I suggest you look closely at this angle.  Remember that Karim Masimov, the former Chief of Kazakhistan’s Intelligence, effectively the equivalent of the Director of the CIA in the USA, was accused of having conspired in high treason for helping to carry out a coup by working with the same band of global gangsters led by Soros, among others.  Notice the picture in the linked article.  That’s right, you see a picture of some familiar faces on Mr. Masimov’s right.

This brings us to the next problem Mr. Soros now faces.  His color revolutions in and around Russia have been stymied, at least for the moment, but he’s got another problem, and it’s a difficult one.  Putin may hold some information on Biden and his son, along with the activities of other Western politicians likewise involved.  This is a serious threat to “[their] civilization” because Biden is currently refraining from undercutting Putin in any serious way.  I believe they have an operation in motion to get to Putin, and the future duration of Biden’s presidency is entirely wrapped-up in the success or failure of their ability to “go get him.”  If it fails, and Putin remains, Biden may be forced to choose between “[their] civilization” and his own son.  This is why the Western Information Cartel has made Russian contributions to world news increasingly opaque.  There are certain stories they cannot afford to have exposed.  Hunter Biden is now a liability, as may be Joe Biden himself.  Soros may have to play that card, and pull the plug on Biden.  That may not, however, be enough.  They need to free-up NATO to go kinetic against Russia.  The “Neocons” and others screaming for war on the approximate, putative political right in the United States are pushing hard against Biden.  These people are compromised too, most of them, and they’re in bed with Soros one way or the other.  Don’t delude yourself on this: The United States Senate is ultimately controlled almost entirely by sell-outs to the United States.  Lindsey Graham and Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio are far from alone among those who will happily do the bidding of their masters.

If we get to the next round of this rolling catastrophe, Taiwan will present very similar themes all ’round.  Hunter and Joe are every bit as compromised by Xi’s CCP, perhaps even more than they are by Putin.  Many Western politicians fear this most of all.  Xi is only now coming to understand that Soros and his crowd have been using the last thirty years to infiltrate his country too, and indeed, much of the Pacific rim.  This is why Soros’ op-ed piece, linked above, contains a warning as much or even more to Xi than to Putin. He desperately needs Xi not to back Putin on anything here, but the fact that Xi has sent mixed messages on the matter have left Soros quite angry.  Xi has figured out that Soros would happily foment color revolutions in Hong Kong and Taiwan, as well as in mainland China.  Xi very much fancies himself the next Mao, or the next Deng, but more probably, bigger and better than either.  Xi exudes confidence and not a little arrogance.  Soros is here warning Xi that he’s now on the list too.

I’d ask readers to consider some important questions worth pondering.  Let us begin with the information war, and the way in which the Western Information Cartel is conducting it, not on behalf of Ukraine, but on behalf of “[their] civilization.” Consider what you have been told, all simultaneously:

  • Putin is on the run, or getting desperate, or his forces are failing(or some version of this narrative)
  • Ukrainians are heroically fighting-back, preventing Putin from capturing territory
  • Putin is destroying Ukraine, flattening it everywhere, without regard to civilians
  • Putin doesn’t have the ability to reliably project force over the battle space
  • Putin conducted a strike on a training base in far Western Ukraine

Some of these are assessments, by “analysts.” Others are from commentators.  Still others are provided as facts.  Some of these may be true, but they cannot all be true simultaneously.  Remember these other things told you by the same Western Information Cartel:

  • Trump colluded with Russians to hack Hillary’s email and otherwise get dirt on her and also secure their help in rigging the 2016 election
  • Trump said there were good people on both sides(implying he was simply talking about the protesters and counter-protesters – and all counter-protesters were white supremacists)
  • SARS-CoV2 is a lethal virus that arose naturally in bats and jumped to humans in a wet-market in Wuhan
  • Hydroxychloroquine is a dangerous drug that can cause significant heart problems and doesn’t work against COVID
  • COVID-19 Vaccines are perfectly safe and effective
  • The 2020 Presidential Election(and indeed all elections that November) were the safest, most secure in history
  • Oil price increases and spiking inflation are mostly due to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine

Do you begin to see a pattern?

  • Ghost of Kiev
  • Snake Island
  • Zelenskiy’s “ammo, not a ride” quote that wasn’t

There are many more, and you must begin to ask yourself to what degree and how frequently you’re being played by mainstream media.  The Western Information Cartel is staffed by people largely sympathetic first and foremost to George Soros and his coterie of corrupt globalist cannibals, who fancy themselves compassionate while they simultaneously feast on average people anywhere the hunger strikes them.  These people are gangsters, and their small errand-boys in the media simply follow orders.  This is how they can in one moment tell you that Putin has carried out a devastating strike in far Western Ukraine, but in the next, provide analysis claiming that Putin is incapable of projecting power on the battlefield.  The two notions are entirely incongruous.

Consider too this recent controversy in which Mitt Romney, one of Soros’ boys, accused former Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard of treason for daring to question the narrative about bio-labs in Ukraine.  Romney came unglued.  All Gabbard did was to ask some pointed questions based on the information publicly available.  Romney’s reaction was clearly one of a man worried about some darker truth being unearthed.  Here’s TheHill‘s take on the controversy:

After seeing Romney’s reaction, it’s clear that he’s worried about something not obvious to the rest of us.  His reaction was very defensive, and his former aid’s involvement in Ukraine may be the key. Whatever is motivating Romney’s attack on Gabbard, it’s clear that he seems quite perturbed.  Pierre Delecto isn’t happy with Tulsi.

After a little inspection, you start to realize that somebody’s applying lipstick with a trowel to the pig that is the situation in Ukraine.  Either Ukraine is doing much more poorly than we’re being told, or Putin truly is a lunatic.  Since I’ve seen plenty of evidence to disbelieve the second, and no evidence at all to dissuade me of the first, I’ve begun to believe the Western Information Cartel is simply telling us a gargantuan lie.  Why? To what end? Surely, if this is so, it cannot change the ultimate outcome.  If Ukraine is actually in a much worse military state than the media now suggests, what would be their object? It’s a stall-for-time tactic.  One thing for which they’re clearly stalling is the finalization of a nuclear deal with Iran being negotiated by Russia.  I’m still not certain as to why the nuclear deal is so deadly-important to the Biden gang, and presumably also the Soros club.  The more immediate idea is to prevent Ukrainians from understanding how bad their situation really is across the entire battlefield, and to try to buoy their morale so as to extend their will to resist.  The idea is likely to give time for an anti-Putin operation to succeed.  At this point, it may be the only way the money-laundry and corruption-den that has been Ukraine these last twenty years may be salvaged by Soros and his gang, and they’ve invested a lot of money there, and with it, a ton of yours via the State Department, the Department of Defense, and countless other US agencies and departments.  That’s right.  You’re paying for this however it shakes out.

 

The Crisis of Truth in Ukraine

Thursday, March 10th, 2022

What don’t they want us to see?

One of the problems you face in trying to discern what’s going on in Ukraine is the almost complete black-out of facts on the ground.  We’re simply not getting much information, and while we get reports of things that happen, many times, too frequently in fact, these reports are later debunked or revised in such a way as to make what’s really going on very murky and unintelligible.  On Wednesday, there was a report of a maternity ward in a hospital being struck by the Russians.  I’ve heard no follow-up reports, but I don’t consider the story factual until I see some sort of confirmation that it’s real.  We’ve all been burned too many times already in this conflict, by ridiculous fake news, almost all of it either for the Ukrainians, or against the Russians.  “Snake Island,” “Ghost of Kiev,” “I don’t need a ride, I need ammo,” “radiation leaks,” and on and on.  The number of false stories coming out of this conflict, combined with the complete lack of solid information on casualty counts on either side suggests a number of things to me, and all of it is that the gas-lighting is on an epic scale.  There’s no truth in any of this. On Wednesday, Bongino referred to the problem as a “Crisis of Truth.” It’s worse than that. We have a crisis of facts, due to a stunning lack of them.  Do we know the truth?  No.  Can we know the truth?  I don’t know, and I don’t believe anybody else in the West can tell you otherwise.  I’m going to tell you what I think is happening, and what may happen. I’m also going to tell you why I think it’s happening.  These are not facts, but they are educated guesses based on the slim facts we have.

Russia is grinding it out.  Things are not going easily for Russia, but unless something else changes markedly, they’re going to defeat the Ukrainians.  The invaders have all the material, manpower, and technological advantages.  Even Ukraine’s planes are aging Russian models.  Russia largely controls the avenues of approach into Ukraine, except in the most extreme West of the country, but again, the ability to move any substantial amount of supplies or war materials into Ukraine from the West will be severely hampered.  Russia clearly controls the areas along the Black Sea coast, so there’s no material by ship that’s going to make it in.  Even now, it seems the latest disposition maps I’ve seen suggest that Russia is slowly encircling the major cities, and the area East of the Dnieper River seems to be almost entirely in Russian control. Since this region is a majority-Russian-speaking populace, it seems as though Putin may have an increasingly firmer grip. In the far North, we know Putin already shares control of the Chernobyl nuclear plant site with the Ukrainians, just as he does now at the large power plant in the center of the country, the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, located on the Dnieper River.

From the Russian perspective, securing the nuclear sites makes a good deal of sense.  Preventing saboteurs from turning nuclear plants into gargantuan dirty bombs is an important task any invader would be likely to undertake.  One would also expect that if the invaders intended to restore normalcy to an area after pacifying an area, they wouldn’t want to wreck the entire electric infrastructure.  Reports from other areas in the country likewise suggest that the Russian forces may be avoiding unnecessary damage to infrastructure, again suggesting they intend to restore normalcy quickly rather than over decades. This very much flies in the face of the narrative that Putin is a mad-dog wild-man intent upon razing Ukraine utterly to the ground.

Reports now suggest that upwards of two million Ukrainians have fled the country, most for refuge in Poland.  Ukraine forces are under-equipped, and highly demoralized.  Worse, some portion of their forces may have been encircled or nearly encircled in the Eastern section of the country.  On the other hand, the Ukrainians are fighting a defensive war, which means they have the advantage on the turf they still hold.

The issue that came to a head on Wednesday is the matter of biolabs in Ukraine.  There had been a fair amount of rumor-mill level information circulating around the Internet that suggested there were bio-warfare labs in Ukraine, and that Putin was going after them.  Let me try to clear the air on this, since certain conservative hosts seem not to grasp any of this material, while others at least recognize the implications: If there are bio-labs in Ukraine that have been handling dangerous pathogens, then Putin will certainly be able to make the claim, a la “Weapons of Mass Destruction” that he had a right to pre-emptively attack Ukraine to reduce/eliminate the threat.  What could the United States possibly say in opposition? “But Bruh, we’re the good guys…

There are those who have claimed, on behalf of the US government, that these labs are of a defensive purpose only, but let me be more honest: If you have the sort of research labs that’s handling Anthrax, you can just as easily weaponize your research products as not.  More, there’s information that one of the labs was collecting genetic material in which they were seeking only white Russian RNA for experimentation.  Why would a lab in Ukraine do that? That doesn’t sound innocent at all, and once you realize that the US Department of Defense was involved, one can’t understate the potentially diabolical nature of such research.  The fact that Victoria Nuland claims they’re now concerned about the disposition of the labs, and imputing a Russian offensive intent to capturing the labs suggests to me there’s something nefarious that has been going on in Ukraine.  Fifteen of these labs throughout Ukraine were being funded by DoD to at least some degree.  If, and I stress the IF, this turns out to be a collection of real biolabs with weaponization capabilities, then Russia has a legitimate claim that the United States was funding bioweapons on their border, and this would make US the bad guys. I cannot tell you how thoroughly disgusted I am with all of this.  These people, who funded the labs with our tax dollars, all of them, each and every one, needs to go to jail if there is any evidence of weaponization and weapons research for several reasons. First, that would violate the 1972/75 Biological Weapons Conventions. Second, it would likely violate US law.  Third, it could be seen as an act of war or certainly provocation of one.

The other thing I’ve been hearing reports from Ukraine include the fact that the Ukrainian forces are making combat emplacements among civilian homes and facilities in order to stymie Russian advances, knowing Russia is attempting to avoid civilian casualties.  The Russians have been making announcements in some areas, warning civilians to stay out of certain areas in which they intend to attack.  If the story of Ukrainian forces sheltering among or placing weapons among civilians turns out to be true, they are guilty of war crimes by using civilians as shields.

As for the role of the United States in the overall crisis, the following has become undeniably clear:

  • They don’t want to stop Putin yet…They may be looking for an opportunity to set-up Putin with a nuclear, biological, or chemical false flag
  • They will not provide Ukraine any significant weapons of self-defense
  • They’re happy to try to goad other NATO members into stepping into provocative territory
  • They want Putin gone, but they still need his help with the Iran deal
  • If they can’t control Zelenskiy themselves, they’ll happily cut him loose to the fate Russians have in store, if they don’t whack him themselves

One of the other things that’s really beginning to cause my eyebrows to raise is the lack of statistical data on the dead and wounded.  We received reports of incidents here and there, but isn’t it odd that the same media that kept a ticker on dead Americans in Iraq, and deaths and infections from COVID (but only while Trump was in office,) are suddenly disinterested in the statistics? One would think that if it’s all as brutal as we’ve been told, there’d be some sort of, dare I say it, “body count” for either side.  Instead, there’s nothing of the sort.  Given all the coverage of wars I’ve witnessed going all the way back to Vietnam, blaring announcers in grave voices stating the hard and ugly results of war in numerical terms has been a feature for as long as I can remember, until now.  Why should today be different, suddenly?  They ordinarily use these statistics to horrify us and to turn us against whichever war is being prosecuted at the time.  Why are they treating Ukraine differently?  It’s not that I’m a ghoul, but one of the unmistakable evidences of war is the grim reality of the wounded and the dead, and media has been only too willing to show them to us in the past.  I find it highly suspicious that we’re not being shown any of that in the war today.

More and more, as I listen to the coverage, I’ve come to wonder if we’re even given enough information to discern the truth on our own.  Ordinarily, the media gives us just enough to be able to figure out what’s going on, even if they lie entirely about an event’s actual meaning, as is their custom. Now, we get none of this. We get grainy footage, blurred by motion, or static pictures in which nothing is going on, and at most, we’re looking at an aftermath of something, but what happened there and who did it is obscured by time.  What we don’t get is any live footage of ongoing combat. The closest we get is something like an artillery piece, or other long-range or indirect fire weapon firing, with no context about where it’s occurring or what the target of the artillery fire might be.  Where are the media embeds with their satellite up-links?  In the modern context, this “coverage” simply isn’t.  They’ve also cut off all Russian media, so there’s no counterpoint of any kind, and no real-time footage coming from them either. The lack of video of the fighting give me the same feeling I had in the wake of January 6th when the Capitol Police would release little camera footage from among the 14,000 hours they had captured.  Why would you conceal it?

On the Ukrainian side of things, we now have the spectacle of President Zelenskiy accusing the West of doing nothing, which in some ways is definitely true, but what is galling to me is his demands that the West come to his aid.  Here is the spectacle of a beggar waving his fist at those he would have provide him charity.   When asked about the danger of escalation, he remarks that any such dangers are unknown or unknowable, and with that, we should simply ignore the risk.  At least for me, there’s something offensive about a country’s leader telling Americans that they’re to blame, and that he’s not worried about the blowback from any escalation on our country.  It’s just a little bit galling.  We’ve already provided much more support over the years than I would have approved, had I been given a choice. (Of course, that sentiment applies to many more nations than Ukraine.)  Here’s video from an interview by Sky News:

The accusations flying back and forth over the biolabs situation has not abated, and Psaki issued a blanket denial of US involvement in bioweapons labs in Ukraine, and called Russian and Chinese accusations of this “conspiracy theories.’  When Jen Psaki says a narrative is a “conspiracy theory,” you can be virtually certain that the opposite is true:

I think this is made plain, at least in part, by Victoria Nuland’s own remarks to Senator Rubio on Tuesday.  I’ll re-post the video here:

Notice that Nuland says there are concerns that these biological materials could fall into Russian hands?  Why would there be concern if there’s nothing dangerous there, as Psaki later claimed?

The question for Americans is rightly: Who’s lying?  It’s not a question any longer of whether you’re being fed lies.  The question is: Among all the liars involved, which of them is currently lying to you?  Maybe all of them are liars to some degree.  We can’t know, but the very fact that we need to speculate underlines the problem.  I don’t trust any of these people.  As I covered earlier, people I’ve trusted for a long time are now unreliable.  From the point of view of somebody covering this story, it’s a catastrophe.  There’s no way to know anything with certainty, and at least for the moment, it’s being kept that way. This crisis of facts is the underpinning of Bongino’s “Crisis of Truth,” and I see no evidence of the crisis relenting.

 

 

 

 

The Enemy Is Here

Wednesday, March 9th, 2022

One needn’t go abroad to find our most lethal enemies…

It’s no longer a matter of debate.  The media and the US federal government are now the enemy of the American people.  They’ve colluded to lie to you about virtually everything.  Still more in would-be conservative media have apparently unwittingly walked into the trap, and have added themselves to the media and government propaganda machine.  You’re being scammed.  They created a false narrative about Ukraine.  They created a false narrative even about Putin.  They created a false narrative(still under construction) about their new Iran deal(JCPoAv2.)  All of this is being done without the consent of the American people.  Instead, they punish you in their alleged efforts to punish Putin.  If the American people had an idea what is happening to them, rather than sanctioning Russia or anybody else overseas, the American people would levy sanctions against their own government.  You can go around the world seeking out enemies to conquer, but the truth in 2022 is that if you’re a citizen of the United States, living in America as you always have, your truest and most lethal enemy is inside the DC beltway, and in the high-rises of Manhattan.  Don’t go looking elsewhere for the enemy laying siege to you.  The enemy is here. Their war is against you.

Some number of the American people haven’t been fooled. They get it. They understand that almost nothing they’re being told is true. Consider some of the lies you have been told in just the last few days:

The cause of the inflation and fuel price increases is Ukraine, and Russia’s invasion of it. Is this true?

Retail Gasoline Price Rises since Biden’s Inauguration

While it’s clearly true that we’ve had roughly $0.70 gain in prices since Putin invaded Ukraine, we saw nearly $1.50 in price increases prior to the invasion since Biden was inaugurated but before the invasion. So around sixty-five percent of the price increases in fuels is all on Biden.

You were told that Zelenskiy said “I don’t need a ride, I need ammunition.”  We now know that was a fabrication.

We were told two weeks ago that the idea that there were Bio-Labs handling dangerous antigens in Ukraine with which we had been working was a fabrication and conspiracy theory, but yesterday, we learned that this too was a lie, but worse, they’re going to try to flip the script on Putin and Russia. Victoria Nuland should thank DeepState Little Marco for the assist:


This quote from Victoria Nuland needs to burn into your brain as though from a cattle branding-iron:

“…it is classic Russian technique to blame on the other guy what they’re planning to do themselves.”

This is what the DC Mafia does. We watched them do this to Trump for more than five years.  We’ve seen it repeatedly, and here they are using it on Putin, but also against us.  You should begin to get the idea by now that there’s nothing about which these people in Washington DC won’t lie.  We are the intended targets of the lies, and as I explained yesterday, part of this plot is focused on getting you and your congressional representatives to go along with their new Iran Nuclear Deal, known as JCPoA.  We still don’t know why they are so desperate for this new deal, just as they were desperate for the original. It remains the question of our time. All that can be said with certainty is that they are driving all of this, and that they’re lying to us about every bit of it.

Consider the Polish fighter jets story.  Initially, we were told the government of Poland might be willing to give up their Mig-29s to Ukraine, but immediately, that government came out to say that they would not, because it would be an escalation they would just as soon avoid.  The pressure was put on them to do so, so instead, what the government of Poland did was to say, effectively, “Fine, you want the Mig-29s, we’ll relinquish them to the United States, and fly them to a base in Germany for you, and you can do with them as you will, but we’ll need replacement F-16s.” Our DoD immediately came out to quash this because we apparently don’t now have sufficient F-16s for our own needs, and therefore have none to spare to Poland.  The problem in all of this is that we wanted the government of Poland to provide them directly to Ukraine, but what Poland wisely did was to get the monkey off of their backs and put it on ours, effectively putting the United States in the position to decide whether to escalate this conflict.  Poland wasn’t going to be blamed if an East-West shooting war erupted.  Your own government, the government of the United States, was more than willing to have Poland instigate a shooting war, but the US government doesn’t wish to be seen as instigating it themselves.

I said before that I believe the American people are wising-up to this, and I still believe this is true, but the problem is that they’re awakening too slowly. At this rate, by the time they figure it out, and become resolved to do what must be done, it’s likely to be too late.  Either the DC Mafia will have walked us into a nuclear war, or the economy will be so ravaged that most of us will never recover. Certainly, we have enemies of every description around the globe, but the enemy most lethal to the American people and their way of life resides in Washington DC.  The enemy is here.

The hour is late, yet still I fundamentally place my hope in the good sense of the American people.

 

 

 

Embarrassing Loss of Credibility in Talk Radio in the Era of FakeNews

Thursday, March 3rd, 2022

The difficult chore of maintaining credibility in the era of FakeNews

It started in a big way last week. Dan Bongino violated his own self-imposed “72 hour rule” with the story of the Snake Island story from Ukraine. Before the weekend was over, he’d discovered that he’d been misled like so many others, promptly informing his listeners of that fact on Monday.  Dan’s “72 hour rule” is that when some new story of bomb-shell proportions comes along, he tends to hold onto them in order to verify the stories multiple ways before repeating them to his audience.  Many others have seemingly been duped, repeatedly, and it’s a real problem, because while they may not be the ones originating the story, they’re the ones repeating it to their audiences.  From the point of view of their audiences then, for all intents and purposes, they are originating the stories.  On Tuesday, as is my habit while driving home, and as soon as I walk in the door, I tuned into Mark Levin’s show.  Levin, long my runaway favorite among talk-show hosts, began in on a story in which he described the workings and effects of thermobaric bombs.  He explained that Russia was using them. He also explained that Russia was using cluster-bombs against civilian areas, despite the bombs having been banned for use against civilians.  Within less than twenty hours, these reports had been smashed when Bongino said on air on Wednesday that these reports hadn’t panned-out.  A little digging revealed that this had been a completely unconfirmed report, and initially, there was a video discounted as fake by the gentleman in charge of the political subdivision in which it had allegedly occurred.  The claims about cluster bombs are likewise unconfirmed, except that in Eastern Ukraine, there’s some evidence the Ukrainian forces have used them.  At this moment, there is still no firm evidence that either side has used them, but even as of this moment, you can surf over to Levin’s site for his Tuesday Recap page and find the unverified claims about their use by Russia, along with the false claim that these weapons are altogether forbidden.  He also claimed during his on-air description that the thermobaric bombs constitute a chemical weapon, which they most certainly are not.  All of this made it plain to me in a very painful way that my favorite among talk-show hosts, Mark Levin, a guy I have enjoyed more even than Rush over the years, had now joined the legion of outlets I generally consider #FakeNews.  It’s both shocking and saddening to me.  We have so few media outlets we can take at face value.  Whether by negligence or intent or because they’ve simply been fooled by others, it’s clear now that just when we need them most, most all media, even supposed “conservative” media, lie to us in varying degrees.  Though I neither feel it should be my place, nor do I feel I have the heart to do the matter full justice, I must now take on “the Great One,” for the sake of my own integrity.

This is and has been the greatest disappointment of the last several years, and it began during the era of Trump, not because of anything Trump did, but because since the rise of Trump, any pretense at objectivity has been ditched in mainstream media, from CNN to MSNBC to Reuters to FoxNews.  Media outlets have become so uniformly unreliable in so many ways for people like talk-show hosts, who must rely upon valid and factual news stories to fuel the discussions they will spawn with their audiences.  The underlying information is so frequently inaccurate that talk-show hosts are finding it difficult to stay ahead of the fake news injected at light-speed into the conversation.  Don’t misunderstand me to have said that I believe Mark Levin or Dan Bongino are liars, but that they now serve as a conduit through which lies are smuggled to their predominantly conservative audiences.  I don’t believe this is their intention, but I suspect that applies to many other talkers.  It’s that they’ve come to rely on sources that are corrupt or corruptible.  It’s happened to me a time or two over the last eleven years here on this blog, usually in very small ways I’ve rushed to correct.  The problem is that at the speed with which information now propagates upon its release in modern media, a lie can do real damage to our world, in ways that could be measured in millions of lives.

When the pandemic coverage had begun in 2020, I’d already suspected Fauci of giving us all a load of internally inconsistent nonsense.  From a logical point of view, many of his pronouncements didn’t make sense.  His answers were either unnecessarily evasive or expressed with unjustifiable certitude.  Some of it was simply nonsensical.  Mark Levin was among the first people in conservative media who featured Fauci as a guest, on his show on Foxnews.  Fauci used Levin’s credibility with his conservative audience to ensnare them with his now largely-debunked and almost completely refuted narratives.  I dare Mark Levin to now go back and re-watch the garbage he permitted Fauci to spew under the banner of “Life, Liberty and Levin,” and tell me that somehow, he feels unashamed for having failed his audience.  He should feel pain if he now re-watches that episode, particularly considering that people made life-and-death-level decisions based on Fauci’s pronouncements early on.  Mark Levin is a trusted source among conservatives like me.  You can do the math.  The fact that Fauci was saying these things on Levin’s show made them seem more reliable.  Silly, gullible me. While I still didn’t trust Fauci, I did trust Mark Levin, and Fauci had now been given Levin’s virtual imprimatur.  Fool me once…

Less than one year later, on January 6th, 2021, I listened as Mark Levin came on the radio and raged against the rioters at the Capitol on that day.  He railed against the people at the Capitol, as if they were the terrorists my gut said they hadn’t really been, at least most of them.  I listened, and I began to get that sickly feeling of disappointment.  Was Levin falling for another false story?  Since then, Levin has clearly realized, due to in-depth reporting by people like Julie Kelly, that he wasn’t getting the full story then, either. This entire episode had been frustrating to me because I actually know a man who observed some of what went on at the Capitol that day, during the event, from outside the Capitol, where he could see much of what was going on.  While he never went into or anywhere near the scrum going on outside, he was in a position to see that there were numerous and obvious provocateurs.  He told me that at one point, it became clear to him that at least some of the Capitol Police appeared to be acting in collusion with some of the provocateurs.  Many innocent dupes followed the provocateurs into the Capitol, and my friend could see this happening. Some of the dupes were even drawn into a melee with police by the provocateurs, which happens quite easily in a crowd this size.  As these events were happening, I was in my office listening to accounts of it, live on the radio, wondering immediately if this was another DC-UniParty setup.  Why wasn’t that Levin’s first instinct?  He has enough experience to have spotted it.  I live half a continent away, but I can smell DC BS from the other side of the planet these days.  This event had that stench from the beginning.  Despite our shared experience of the last several years, for more than a few radio hosts, it wasn’t so obvious for some reason, but should have been.  Instead, we got the usual “we condemn all violence” business, in a fashion no different than Chris Wallace repeatedly demanding that Trump denounce white supremacists on the debate stage, starting from the ridiculous premise that Trump were some sort of racist who now needed to renounce such associations.  Conservatives must lose their fear of these smear-jobs, because it cripples them, not only politically but also intellectually, which is the intent of the smear-artists. For all appearances to the world, Levin and many other hosts were pushing the mainstream media, DC UniParty narrative, again.

Levin is a passionate advocate for positions in the information sphere, as am I, which is undoubtedly a large measure of what draws me to his broadcasts daily.  I don’t make decisions about issues or candidates on the basis of emotion, but instead take a firm and careful accounting of them.  Once I’ve done so, I then apply my passion to the conclusions I’ve drawn in explaining an issue or advocating a particular stance.  The problem that arises for people like Mark Levin, Dan Bongino, or anybody else in the broadcast space is that things move incredibly fast.  Information blasts in and out, and it is updated and superseded by better, more accurate information, but also sometimes more bogus, inflated, and hyped information.  It happens constantly.  In this environment, one is going to make judgments about the newsworthiness of a story in an accelerated frame of reference, and it will necessarily lead to a much higher rate of error than it will, for instance, on a lowly blog published in the backwaters of the Internet. Some of the posts here are composed, fact-checked, and pushed out in thirty minutes or less, but those are rare. In the main, the postings on this site will have taken hours to compose, sometimes days, or longer, and I’ve been known to table a story indefinitely if I think my information isn’t solid enough. If you were to have access to what’s here, you would see that I have almost half as many posts in “draft” status as the almost fourteen-hundred posts that have been published over the span of years. Those drafts are posts you cannot see, and many of them you will likely never see, but this is the process. If a story just doesn’t stand up as I think it should, it’s never published. That’s born of the luxury of knowing I’ll almost never be “first” with a story, and that all I can offer is a unique perspective, or new details you hadn’t been presented before, and because the speed at which I present information is far less important to my audience than the idea that I get it right.

Levin sometimes has excellent instincts.  In March of 2017, based on a smattering of seemingly unrelated stories across several media outlets including McClatchy and the New York Times, Levin’s good instinct for political chicanery by Democrats led him to piece together the story we’ve all come to know is SpyGate, which actually encompasses a whole universe of sub-scandals, from spying on the Trump campaign and presidency, to the use of that information to concoct two fake impeachment narratives.  The chicanery also revealed what should be the biggest scandal of all: The corruption of the FISA system by actors within the Justice Department and the FBI, along with others both directing and participating in these activities in the administration, and on the FISA court.  What Levin’s instinct (and experience within the DOJ)provided him was the starting point for unveiling what should be known as the greatest scandal in American history, but for the fact that the corrupt and corruptible media will never willingly report on it.  Claims that Levin is incapable of stellar research and investigation are to be ignored.  It’s clear he has the experience and clear-eyed thinking to analyze such things.  Why does it seem, of late, that he’s not nearly so clear-eyed in his appraisals?  We can always forgive errors born of honest intent, but the problem is that media will attack even for those sorts of instances.

Levin bitterly complained after a small error in his most recent book, runaway New York Times best-seller American Marxism, was made out to be a mortal sin by a few among the chattering class in the leftist mainstream media.  In general, his books are extremely informative and well-written. They’re amazingly well-researched and thoroughly documented. Few authors go to the lengths to provide the citations that Levin routinely does within the pages of his books.  The problem is that when those critics reviewing your books are doing so with a political bias and intent, what you get instead of honest critiques are partisan hit-jobs.  Levin made the error of writing “Franklin School” instead of “Frankfurt School,” as if that’s not an easy mistake to make and and a more difficult error to spot in editing. From the point of view of the full-tilt leftist media, this was the worst scandal in literary history, and they used it to libel him mercilessly.  There’s a vast difference between an innocent error and the intentional falsehoods leftists publications gin through their presses and websites daily.

One of the problems is that in broadcasting, information moves extremely rapidly, and if you let yourself become emotionally invested in your conclusions about a given story too quickly, you’re going to get burned, quickly losing the trust of your audience, particularly if you don’t forthrightly confront the story’s inaccuracies or plain falsehoods promptly, as Bongino did on Monday and again Wednesday.   In the case of Mark Levin, I’ve come to a crossroad due to this trouble.  As a matter of loyalty for all his years of hard work, honest advocacy, and excellent programming, I am easily persuaded to give him another chance.  And another.  And probably several more.  The crisis I’m beginning to experience is that this has become something of a trend, but more importantly, he surely became aware between his broadcasts of Tuesday and Wednesday that the use of thermobaric or cluster bombs (by either party) in the war in Ukraine are unconfirmed.  I listened intently to the whole of his Wednesday broadcast, as I do most days, waiting for him to step right into the matter and clear it up. He never did.

Another sin of Levin’s is made up of his best intentions to advance conservatism.  On many more than one occasion, due to his desire to defeat the left, he’s let alleged conservatives on the air, generally Republicans seeking election/re-election, who come on to use his platform in a political season, often seeking his endorsement or even just the legitimacy among conservatives lent to them by appearing on his airwaves.  Lindsey Graham?  Kevin McCarthy?  There are more.  Too many, really.  I remember yelling at my radio, riding down the road “Mark, why do you bring these RINOs on your program? They’re going to screw you and betray us as soon as they’re re-elected.”  Well?  Have they?  Yes, sadly they have.  Levin himself was gently commenting on this recently.  He knows.  What he may not realize is how thoroughly it harms his credibility.

Since the beginning of the Russian attack on Ukraine, Levin has begun to bang the pots and pans indicating he’s very much in favor of some kind of intervention, or at least assistance to the beleaguered people of Ukraine.  It’s leading him to accept too quickly the dis/misinformation he’s getting from some source(s), perhaps at Foxnews, or perhaps elsewhere.  This has begun to seriously impact his credibility.  On Wednesday evening, my worst fears in this vein were realized when he began gushing over Never-Trumper FoxNews Pentagon Correspondent, Jennifer Griffin, who’s a known leftist, clearly committed to corrupting news over at FoxNews.  She’s one of the demons involved in the fake, ridiculous story about Trump at Normandy back in 2018, in which he allegedly called service-members who died there “suckers.” At the time of the story, Griffin said she was “unable to confirm the more salacious details,” implying she had confirmed the less salacious details, which naturally, she hadn’t.  The whole story was later debunked, but as usual, the debunking never received coverage to scale of its the story’s original propagation.  If this is one of Levin’s routine sources on national security matters, then nothing he says on the subject is even remotely reliable any longer.  I get it: He’s not a reporter, but he still has some obligation to the facts, and he needs to be more discerning in selecting his sources.  Neither Griffin nor Baier, both to whom Levin seems to have some unusual attachment, are what I would consider reliable or even particularly passable sources.  Before going on an anger-fueled rant about how he’d happily provide his own weapons to the people of Ukraine, perhaps it would be a good idea to verify the reports of cluster-bombs and thermobaric bombs allegedly employed by the Russians.  When it turns out, less than one day later, that the stories were either false or at least unverified, what then can he say to pull back on the bombast?  It’s too late. Elvis has left the building.  The best he can do is to retract the story later, but how does he then retract the bombast?  He almost certainly won’t.  He’s likely to leave that part stand, despite being at least partially motivated by the false stories.  This is the danger of the passion when driven by unchecked or unverified information.  As of now, he’s still letting the thermobaric and cluster bomb stories stand.  I suppose he hopes we won’t notice, or that the unverified stories will become verified, or even mooted by future verified use.

Bongino was more measured Wednesday, having mostly abandoned the narrative that Putin had become unhinged and “irrational,” instead pulling it back to “unpredictable.”  The interesting part about that is that in times past, Bongino had criticized Biden for destroying any “strategic ambiguity,” while praising Trump for having maintained it.  “Strategic ambiguity” consists, in part, of unpredictability. On Monday and Tuesday, he had relentlessly pounded on the idea that Putin was perhaps irrational or even insane.  It doesn’t help that this has been the mainstream media and UniParty narrative. Here is Hillary Clinton from Tuesday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show:

Notice that Clinton questions Putin’s state of mind too.  It’s foolish to assume your enemy is a crackpot because he’s become less predictable.  In time of War, I would in many respects seek to make myself as unpredictable as possible to adversaries and enemies.  It would be my intention to keep them guessing, and I’d want them to worry mightily about my willingness to ratchet-up the intensity or scope of the war.  Bongino likes to talk about how President Trump had maintained a cloak of “strategic ambiguity” around his foreign policy intentions.  Why would Putin behave differently?  In contrast, Clinton famously had her reset button with the Russians while serving as Secretary of State, a job she was woefully ill-equipped to perform.  Fortunately for her, it did give her access to bilk much of the globe with her Clinton Foundation.  It was strictly a cash-and-carry operation, and there was no “strategic ambiguity” in it.  Her mission was to cart away cash, and Russia fully understood it.

The other thing clear in the video is that the DC UniParty establishment is trying to capture the mantle of Ronald Reagan, as they continue their anti-Trump narrative.  People like Levin and Bongino need to think very carefully about who’s providing the information they now rely upon to make pronouncements about Ukraine.  If I could ask either man a question, I think I might pose it this way:

Consider the following list of names: Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Mitt Romney, Adam Schiff, Susan Rice, Eric Swalwell, Adam Kinzinger, Liz Cheney, Fiona Hill, “Colonel” Vindman, Victoria Nuland, Ron Klain, and Jake Sullivan.

Now consider the events in Ukraine since roughly 2004.  Then consider the activities of that list of people(and other cohorts) over the intervening period. Then, consider the following facts: In 2014, with funding and assistance from the US State Department, US DOD, and various US intelligence agencies, there was a coup d’etat in Ukraine.  Essentially, the US fomented and funded regime-change in Ukraine. Ever since, the narrative in DC by the establishment, particularly the Democrats, has been “Russia, Russia, Russia.” Even Mitt Romney talked about Russia in his debate appearance, but Obama immediately deflected the question by mocking Romney.  Had Romney inadvertently let a cat escape the proverbial bag?

Now ask: How many of the people listed above were involved in the RussiaHoax/SpyGate, the First Impeachment of Trump, the Second Impeachment of Trump, and how many had a hand in the January sixth story, events, and subsequent narrative? How many are now pushing the official DC UniParty’s Ukraine narrative, in concert with corrupt and corruptible media?

The media lies endlessly to us, and those lies don’t stop with events beyond the water’s edge.  Meanwhile, I have to hear Levin questioning the patriotism of Americans who are questioning the official DC narrative, or suggesting they’re Russophiles or similar garbage.  That’s what I expect from Hillary Clinton, so that when I hear it coming from the radio in Mark Levin’s voice, I must ask him: “What in the Hell are you thinking?” Why would Mark Levin now take up the “Russia, Russia, Russia” allegations of Hillary Clinton only to aim them against members of his own audience? On the basis of information from which sources?  Jennifer-freaking-Griffin???

These two men have repeatedly demonstrated their capacity for intense investigations and research, but they’ve been steered in the Ukraine story largely by emotion, driven by many false stories, false narratives, and imagery that’s been created but unsubstantiated in far too many cases. In media generally, we’ve been shown a story about Miss Ukraine, bearing arms and ready to fight, but the rifle she’s pictured with is an airsoft rifle, (airsoft being a sport she enjoys.)  We’ve been told about the “Ghost of Kiev,” by such low-lifes as Adam Kinzinger, that has turned out to be an utter hoax.  The Snake Island story turned out to be propaganda in the larger dimension:  It appears that rather than having been killed after telling their Russian attackers to “Go F’ themselves,” they laid down their arms in surrender, and are now all safe, albeit disarmed and removed from the battlefield.  We’ve had a member of the Ukrainian Parliament tell the world that she’s fighting “not only for Ukraine, but for the New World Order.”  We’ve had every manner of false story propagating, not merely from the combatants, but particularly from the Western media.  The number of fabricated, concocted stories coming out of the war zone are far too numerous to list here. Even the imagery is frequently suspect, as reported elsewhere on this site.

That Levin and Bongino walked into some of these stories is no surprise.  I too was sucked into one of them early on.  The Snake Island story recalled the bravado and courage of the Alamo, until it didn’t.  What’s been surprising and disappointing is how thoroughly Levin has been entirely swamped by some of it.  Bongino corrected the record, in his defense and to his credit.  So far, Levin has not, and he’s not backed-off his bombastic declarations about his willingness to ship arms to a country that has been a playground for the DC UniParty’s money-launderers.  The alleged brave acts(it’s not that I doubt the bravery of Ukrainians, but only the veracity of this narrative) are being pushed in media with a reckless disregard for fact-checking and verification, which is the definition of war-time propaganda.  The “fog of war” only clears if we work to make that hapen.  It’s important for talkers to right their ships when they get a story wrong.  Sometimes, it’s understandable and forgivable if the host makes amends by leading with the truth or a correction at the next available opportunity, as Bongino has done this week.  We need solid information, and while I still want the passion both men bring to their respective endeavors in media, I have to insist that they improve their information-vetting, by reconsidering the sources they now employ.  Clearly, some of those sources are of dubious veracity.  I enjoy the presentations of each man, both interesting and entertaining, as well as bracing and motivating, but I need the foundation to be solid.  Everybody makes mistakes, me included, but there are innocent errors and errors of incomplete information, but there are also errors born of haste, undue passion, lack of due diligence and malice.  I expect the former to happen from time to time, and they are entirely generally to be forgiven upon forthright correction.  The other sort, when they become habitual, threaten to turn an outlet or a show into nothing better than another mainstream media outlet: Corrupt or corruptible.  This also applies to many others in the conservative space.  In a moment of excess passion, it could easily happen to me.  We must fight against this kind pollution of facts driven by our own intemperance, but we must also hold outlets and hosts accountable.  I need Levin to correct the record, telling his audience that reports of thermobaric bombs or cluster bombs intentionally targeting civilians are unconfirmed, unverified reports at this time.  In fact, their use at all remains unverified.  These weapons are indeed nasty, but the US has employed cluster-bombs too.  Ask the Iraqis.  Ask the Afghans.  What makes their use illegal, like so many weapons of war, is their use in the intentional targeting of civilians.  Under various international treaties and conventions, doing so constitutes a war crime.  It’s important for Levin to fix this at the next opportunity, and as ever, at least for the moment, I’ll be listening this evening to see if he will.

 

 

Dirty Politics in Texas and Jeb’s Revenge on Trump

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022

Will Jeb have the last laugh At Texans’ Expense?

Texas is a state with Open Primaries. The rules are that we don’t register by party, and despite some efforts to change it, in election after election, RINOs exploit it to their benefit. Tuesday was the Texas Primary, and one race in particular raised my eyebrows. Incumbent Attorney General Ken Paxton received forty-two percent of the vote, with George P. Bush finishing second. This means there will be a run-off in May, the winner of which will move on to the General Election in November.  There’s been one candidate that Democrats and RINOs alike have been attacking like crazy, for years, since he started in office as Attorney General. It’s been non-stop with Democrats and their RINO henchmen cooking up charges and phony scandals to attack Ken Paxton since he first ran.  He wasn’t supposed to get in to begin with, but when he managed to get into the office, he actually did some very good things, and has been a fairly conservative AG.  The establishment RINOs have other plans, and his name is George P. Bush. Yes, son of Governor Bush. No, not the Texas Governor, Bush, who went on to be President, but the other Governor Bush, JEB, who was governor of Florida and failed miserably in his campaign for the presidency in 2016.  Somebody needs to tell President Trump, and somebody needs to get him the message: George P. Bush is the plant the RINOs will use to at least temporarily turn Texas “Blue” as they tried to do in 2020. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, what we’ve seen executed in the Texas Primary is the first big step in Jeb’s Revenge.

They knew they wouldn’t beat Paxton in a primary-day head-to-head race with George P. Bush.  Ken Paxton is far too well-liked among conservatives in Texas, and he’s actually taken a number of steps none of the Bush-o-philes in Austin would ever have done.  His filing of one suit after the next against the Federal government on issues of immigration, and his post-election attempted suit against Pennsylvania, joined by more than twenty other states, was a daring and bold move if John Roberts hadn’t owed his manhood to the DC establishment.  No, if they were going to defeat Paxton, they’d need to use a well-tested strategy that works well and best in an Open Primary state like Texas.  They would try to split the Paxton vote by entering a couple of people who’ve circled the establishment drain, stealthily, who they could use to attack and weaken Paxton while clearing the way for Bush.

Eva Guzman, part of the Abbott wing of the Texas Bush-o-phile establishment, was the first to be injected, in June of 2021. She resigned her seat on the Texas Supreme Court in order to do so, offering no explanation for her sudden resignation at the time.  Within a week, she had filed paperwork with the Texas Ethics Commission signifying her intent to seek the office of Texas Attorney General.  Louie Gohmert’s last minute entry(November 2021) into the race was the tip that polling had shown insiders that Eva Guzman would not, on her own, be enough to force the run-off. Gohmert is thought by many to be a solid conservative, but the former judge owed favors. Certain people needed Paxton removed as an obstacle to George P. Bush’s expected ascension to governor.

This gave George P. Bush a couple of advantages. In the first place, he could let the other two challengers play hammer, pounding on Paxton, particularly Louie Gohmert, who falsely showed himself on his campaign page with President Trump, indicating to the uninitiated and uninformed that he had the support of the former President.  That’s dirty, because of course, Paxton had secured President Trump’s endorsement months before.  Here’s Gohmert’s deceptive, corrupt use of President Trump’s image in likeness overlaid with “Louie Gohmert for Texas Attorney General” logos:

This is the video you would be greeted with upon surfing over to Gohmert’s website.  This is disgusting. I wonder if the former President is aware of how unscrupulous Gohmert has been in misrepresenting himself in this way.  This was frankly the thing that has caused me to lose all respect for Gohmert. He’s clearly portraying himself on this website as though he had Trump’s endorsement for the office of AG, which is a deception. Gohmert also ran nasty attack ads against Paxton, while accusing Paxton of running attack ads I’ve never seen.

I feel terribly for the Texans who were cheated of their votes by Guzman, Gohmert and Bush by this strategy, but it’s not over.  You see, despite receiving the most votes in the Primary, Attorney General Ken Paxton will now face a run-off with George P. Bush, and it’s a clean slate. Now it’s a winner-take-all affair. Bush, who didn’t need to spend too much campaign cash, since he had the two fakers doing his dirty work, will be flush with cash, and of course, the Bush machine can generate more cash in Texas than anybody else.  This will now become the political version of a smash-and-grab, and they will now use all available dirty tricks to overcome Paxton.  This is how the establishment RINOs play their dirty smash-mouth politics.  They used two also-rans to bloody-up Paxton with the sole purpose of making it easier for George P.

This is CRITICAL for Donald Trump, however, because if George P. Bush becomes Texas Attorney General, who will next face re-election in 2026 along with all the top state-wide offices, guess who he will be in a position, along with Abbott, to sabotage in 2024?  Yes, that’s right.  For the Trump Train, this is a five-alarm fire. In 2020, Abbott could afford to sabotage Trump because he wasn’t up that year. None of the state-wide office holders were. So it would be easy to help rig the election for Democrat Joe Biden because for Abbott, he had nothing at stake. People like to talk about Trump’s four-dimensional chess and all that nonsense, but he’d better master the board in Texas quickly, or they’re going to submarine his ass in 2024. Why wouldn’t they?  Wouldn’t Jeb’s son delight in betraying Trump?  You bet.

In the longer run, it’s setting the stage for George P. Bush to become Abbott’s replacement before he goes off to run for President in 2028 or 2032. That’s the game, and if my fellow Texans want to be drilled in this way, stick around. The Bush family will lay a pipeline for you again, and it won’t involve any kind of lubricant Texans might have thought to expect.  This is the beginning of the next Bush Bum’s Rush to power. Paxton is to be their first victim, but he won’t be their last.  Donald Trump is the next target, should he run as many now expect in 2024. From the AG’s seat, Bush will be able to create havoc for Trump in the Presidential race.  Texans need to wake up before the Bush wing of the establishment runs over them again, just as they did in 1988 and afterward, tossing aside all the Reagan folk who’d been so strong in Texas, to be replaced by BushCo folk who will sing by the family hymnal.

I also expect some interference from Washington DC. Don’t be surprised when the crime family’s influence is used to wave around some cobbled-together BS story about Paxton come a week or two before the run-off, just in time to take hold, but too late to be debunked. They have friends everywhere, as they’ve shown, and while they got clobbered by Trump in 2016, they’ve learned now, and they know how to rig things.  Texans had better wake up and smell the coffee, or soon, they’ll be smelling Bush family BS again, maybe for decades to come. If George P. were to run for President in 2032, you won’t be rid of them until 2040! How long are you willing to let one family of sell-outs dominate your state and your country?

For my part, if George P. Bush manages to beat Paxton in the run-off, I will work my back-side off to defeat him in November, even if I have to get out and spend my evenings planting lawn-signs for the Democrats. It’s time for the Bush family dynasty to end, for good this time. We’re America, not Britain, and we don’t do royalty by birth.

As a related side-note, there are a few steps Republicans can take to stop these shenanigans. For one, we need a state constitutional amendment prohibiting any candidate in Texas from appearing in the same election cycle for more than one office. The more important measure is that we must convert Texas to a closed-primary state.  People should be required to choose a party and register as such to vote in a party primary. It’s like having a private club, but letting the public choose its officers. It’s preposterous, and nobody in their right mind would accept these terms in any other circumstance.  In Texas, once you’ve voted in the primary, you’re bound to that party’s ballot for any subsequent run-off.  Therefore, if you vote as a Democrat in the primary, you can’t go vote in a Republican run-off two months later.  The trick, however, is this: If YOU DIDN’T vote in the general primary for either party, you’re still eligible to vote in the run-off.

Does a voter have to vote in the general primary election in order to vote in a primary runoff election?

No. Section 11.001 of the Texas Election Code prescribes the specific qualifications necessary in order to vote in a Texas election. There is no requirement to have previously voted in the general primary election in order to participate in the subsequent primary runoff election. Therefore, if a qualified voter did not vote in the general primary election, they are still eligible to vote in the primary runoff election.

In this way, any number of actual Democrats who did not vote in Tuesday’s primary can show up and vote in the May run-off as Republicans. What this means is obvious, and it’s the reason Texas Republican voters had better wake up to how they’ve been played.  You must get this system under control, because it’s rigged for RINOs to defeat your conservative candidates every time if they have the resources to play the game. As long as they can manage to finish in the top two, the RINO can make it a one-on-one race letting the also-rans do damage to the chief opponent. That’s how the establishment has rigged this game in Texas, and if you don’t get with the program, in May, they’re going to steamroll you with another Bush, putting the Bush clan in the position to stymie Trump again in 2024.  Politics is a dirty, dirty, long game. The Bush family knows how to play it well. When he ran for Land Commissioner four years ago, I could see this coming.  I knew AG would be his next play. George P. Bush hasn’t even been practicing law. He wants to be your AG, so he can step up, and up.  That’s the Bush family plan. You’re the pawns. Ken Paxton is to be their first check-box on their hit parade.

Trump is next. They’re going to hit him in 2024 like you’ve never seen. They want to prevent him from having any influence over the future of the Republican Party.  What if he picks a VP with future prospects?  Wouldn’t that foul their plans? It just might, and so to avoid that possibility, they’re going to strike first with a well-positioned Texas AG who’s going to exact his low-energy father’s revenge. Hell, Jeb might run himself, in 2024. He’s just that arrogant, and if his son controls the AG’s office in Texas, imagine if Trump finds himself denied ballot access in the Lone Star State? The script almost writes itself.

Crazy People Are Driving Us to Nuclear Catastrophe

Tuesday, March 1st, 2022

This is no longer a game

The theme I’ve been circling these last few days have been about the questions we need to be asking, and for which we should demand immediate and clear answers from our government.  It’s clear that there is an element in Washington DC that desperately wants American intervention in Ukraine, and it’s fair to say that at least to some degree, they have actually engineered and precipitated the events we’re now watching unfold.  I’ve written in the past, quite sedately, that there is a segment of our government in Washington DC, and not a minority, that is composed entirely of people who would be only too happy to wipe all Americans out of existence, to rule over our ashes, if that was what would be necessary to protect their political, personal, and financial interests, as well as to protect them from the sort of exposure and prosecution they’re actually, rightfully due. These people have repeatedly and consistently acted against your interests, the interests of all Americans, while filling their pockets and corrupting the justice system in order to avoid punishment for their crimes.  All you need do is consider what they have in store for you.  Now, they’re watching Putin wreck their base of operations, from which they’ve laundered untold spoils.  They’ve become desperate, so desperate in fact that they’re now contemplating how to provoke a nuclear exchange with the Russian dictator.  They don’t care how many millions of you that they will cause to be wiped from existence, or how many will suffer in the aftermath of their war.  As they gin-up a bunch of fake polls to try to support their war, in an attempt to gain some kind of cover for what they’re planning, it’s time for you to begin speaking-up loudly.  They and their pet media need to hear from you. With no effective government that cares even slightly about our interests, We, the people, are now all we have.

The first question I think we need to address is what we’re willing to risk on behalf of the UniParty’s money laundry.  I realize there are millions of people in Ukraine, and I have great compassion for those among them who are complete innocents in all of this, which is most of them. The question before us, however, is whether we are willing to risk nuclear annihilation on behalf of their freedom.  Do we risk the literal existence of the people of the United States for the freedom of a people to whom we have no treaty obligations whatever.  In general, my thought on this is that it’s rather irresponsible for our leaders to even contemplate risking a nuclear exchange on such a basis.  It’s not a matter of compassion for the Ukrainian people, because if we’re substantially wiped from existence, our compassion won’t mean a whole Hell of a lot.  It’s also not a question of courage.  I can fight men with guns and bombs, and presumably, my government is equipped to fight men in airplanes, but there is absolutely nothing I or any American can do to repel, slow, or otherwise impede an ICBM.  Sure, we probably have some strategic defense capabilities, but it’s unlikely those cover the whole of the country. At best, they’ll protect strategic military and command targets, and perhaps the sprawl of Washington DC, and other places to which our National Command  Authorities would flee in time of strategic missile launch.  For you an I, it’s likely to be a really bad day, but mercifully, for some large number of us, the end would be sudden and quick. Those remaining alive would quickly learn about radiation sickness, blast injuries, horrific burns, and eventually, starvation and a miserable death.  Our government long ago gave up any notion of protecting or preserving any substantial number of the American people in case of such an exchange.  If you managed to survive, and avoid the vast clouds of fallout that would blanket the land, and also had some means of avoiding the ongoing radiological threats, you’ll be hard-pressed to find sufficient food, water, and shelter, and there will be sparse or no electricity at all, and it will be decades before it’s restored.  Prepare yourself to live as the frontiersmen did, with the added adventures of surviving a radiological catastrophe.

The next question we would need to ask is if we were to consider risking this, how serious(or how probable) would this risk be?  What is the chance that Vladimir Putin would launch a nuclear strike against the United States?  If the risk were zero, we’d needn’t bother with this conversation at all. We could go forward with whatever maniacal plans our leaders might formulate, safe in the knowledge that Putin wouldn’t pull the trigger, or that if he did, his “gun” would misfire or be perfectly defended. Naturally, the risk is not zero, but is it a five percent chance, or a seventy percent chance?  The media has been pushing a narrative over the last several days that Putin has become disconnected from reality, and that he’s no longer a rational actor.  Even Bongino made this remark today, effectively parroting the sentiments, inadvertently I’m sure, of Democrat analysts.  Let’s assume for the moment that Putin has gone off the rails, at least for the moment.  Do we really want to push a madman to the brink, and to what extent does that increase the probability that he’d launch.  If he’s truly irrational, and I’m not convinced that he is, such a strike might become inevitable were we to take provocative actions of the sort expressed today by Congressman Eric “FangFang” Swalwell(D-CA), who actually suggested that we should deploy our Air Force to engage Putin in combat over the disputed territory that is Ukraine.  Swalwell is calling for making war on the Russian Air Force, pretending that this is in any way different from sending in the Marines.  Not only is he an immoral wanker with the discernment of a rock, but he’s also a perfectly ignorant buffoon, yet this is the sort of advice that are running our government. (I’ll ignore for the moment that he and his friends stand to get insanely wealthy from all of this, or at least get away with absconding with all he’s already pilfered.) Congressman Adam Kinzinger(R-IL), another sick and compromised swamp demon, has advocated the US enforce a no-fly zone over Ukraine.

On the other hand, if the various assessments of Putin are wrong, and I suspect they may well be, then we face a different sort of risk. (And besides, when has our intelligence ever managed to get anything right? The collapse of the USSR surprised them, for instance. They had no idea that its collapse was imminent. They infamously failed to prevent 9/11.  They were wrong, in the main, about Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. We could go on. And on.)  The problem is that if Putin is perfectly rational(or as rational as a dictator of his general demeaner can be,) then this may be even worse.  He may have established(almost certainly) a set of triggers in his military’s defense policy that will cause certain actions by the West to have certain responses by the Russian military.  If that’s the case, then the point for nuclear launch is already programmed.  This is a serious problem, because while we might guess about what those triggers are, and try to act to avoid them, we’ll never be certain, and if we cross the wrong line in Putin’s national defense strategy, we may ignite a cascade of actions and reactions from which there will be no return.

Tucker Carlson covered some of this on Monday evening, and in this clip, you will see the ravings of lunatic Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations.  If you missed it live, as I did, watch this segment:

All of this begs the question: What should the United States of America do?  At present, the overwhelming majority of the American people at once feel compassion for the people of Ukraine, but also do not wish to be dragged into yet another European war, particularly one in which the risks are so high, and the potential upsides for the American people are so vanishingly small.  More importantly, however, I want Americans to think very carefully about this set of facts, the same people pushing us toward a nuclear nightmare are the very people who funded a violent coup in Ukraine in 2014, concocted the entire Russia Hoax begun in 2016, impeached President Trump twice on specious grounds, and effectively conspired with Democrats to steal the election of 2020, and finally to uphold and secure that coup d’etat via the ballot box. That’s who these people are.

Why on Earth would we permit them now to herd us into a third and even more devastating, perhaps apocalyptic world war?  My title suggests that I believe these people are “crazy,” and in one sense they are.  I believe a person has to be mad beyond reckoning to so casually and thoughtless gamble with the lives of hundreds of millions of Americans, never mind the billions of people around the world who would find their world shattered should these people be permitted to carry out their intended war.  What impetus has driven them to this level of madness?  What personal peril must they feel to be willing to risk nuclear war in order to stop Putin?  Putin’s a horrible person, I think we can all roundly agree, and the people of the Ukraine deserve their freedoms, but if the world is engulfed in a nuclear war, what freedoms will they obtain?  What freedoms are possible, beyond the final freedom of the grave? Will there be any graves?  When the US and Russia and everything between becomes a funeral pyre of mushroom clouds, what freedom will we have been fighting to achieve?  What liberty will the slaughtered millions of Ukraine ever come to know?

No. The people advocating this highly irrational course must stop, or if need be, be stopped.  If they proceed on this course, we must not permit this, not by any measure or means, even if we must remove them bodily from their offices to prevent it. They now constitute a reckless danger that means they’re becoming too dangerous to the People and their nation to permit them to carry on in our name.  It is increasingly clear that we are in more danger from the lunatics in the Washington DC establishment than from any threat presently posed by Vladimir Putin.  Clearly, they have either committed crimes already, or other acts for which they seek to avoid any accountability, or they plan future actions that will be equally horrific.  Whichever the case, we cannot afford the prescriptions they now offer, because most of them lead us all invariably to the finality of a sudden and wretched death.  Our president of the United States is clearly incompetent to the office, and while it’s unlikely that his successor will be any better, we must pursue this one step at a time. Biden is clearly incapable of making such decisions, and he’s likely to be guided and steered by the sorts of maniacal loons Carlson discussed in the video above.  We must push for a 25th Amendment removal, but it’s not likely to occur, because those same advisors are the ones who would have to carry it out. At present, they’re able to steer a figurehead.  Why would they give up that sort of power?  If this fails, and it’s likely to, we’re in trouble beyond measure.  Our fates may be controlled by the people who are least concerned with our futures, or if we’re to have one at all.  I’ll leave you to ponder what are choices may come to be, but it’s clear that we must start where we can. We must contact our Senators and Congressmen, and we must make ourselves heard.  These people have managed to make of themselves the most immediately lethal threat to our national security.  They must know that we oppose our involvement, in any way, in the adventures of the maniacs apparently directing our defense policies, and while to be heard, we will need to be courteous, we must also be firm and perhaps terse in our delivery. This is not a campaign we can afford to delay. Time is short, and if these maniacs are permitted to have their way, there may be no way to rescue the situation or our world.

 

Editor’s Note: My purpose is not to cause undue alarm, and I always struggle with the decision to bring terribly troubling news to my readers. In this case, however, there’s no polite, kind, or subtle manner in which to say that which needs now to be said. I wish it were otherwise. I wish our government was such that they hadn’t engineered this looming catastrophe. I wish it, but wish in one hand… You understand my point.  We must deal with that which is, and I wish you all speed and fortune. I never thought I’d have cause to post such a thing. Whether that made me oblivious or optimistic, I cannot say, but if we should manage to somehow survive this, I shall sincerely hope to have no cause to write such things again. Go in peace, but in haste.

Going to War With the President We’ve Got

Friday, February 25th, 2022

Shall we go to War with the President we’ve got?

Donald Rumsfeld once [in]famously remarked that “As you know, you go to war with the Army you have, not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time.” This remark was accurate, even though it was widely and wildly criticized by leftists who have no understanding of national defense. The sentiment is easy enough to understand: You do not always get the luxury of preparing endlessly for war. Sometimes, the need to go to war supersedes your ability to abstain from or delay it for more ideal conditions or state of readiness.  Sadly, this is sometimes true of presidents as well. If the United States were to be attacked suddenly by nuclear strikes originating in Russia, for instance, it really wouldn’t matter who the president at the time might be.  That president would be expected to respond with equal or greater ferocity, irrespective of party or politics.  The problem we now face as a country borders on the galactically absurd.  We have in the Oval office a foolish, apparently dementia-addled old man, who is apparently not in good control of his bowel, never mind his mouth or intellectual capacity. He ought to be removed under the 25th amendment, come what may, but the people who’ve been using him as their meat-mask have no intention of seeing that happen.  We are in mortal danger, but under this President, Joe Biden, we cannot risk any unnecessary wars.  It is the height of unconscionable madness to permit it. I realize that sometimes, a country must go to war with the president in charge at the time, but this is not that situation, and I condemn any who would suggest otherwise.  No, we must not now go to war with the president we’ve got.

Ukraine is under attack by a hostile, monstrous actor.  Vladimir Putin is despicable, but he also has the advantage of owning the superior forces over the terrain in question.  It’s not a matter of caring, because any person can look in horror at the Hell Putin now imposes on the people of that stricken nation and understand the misery they now suffer.  It’s a matter of practical reality.  We are in no position to do anything unless our answer is a nuclear first strike against Russia, but that’s an intolerably bad option for all of the obvious reasons.  We have no significant bases nearby from which we could operate the number of air sorties needed to put up any sort of sustained defense of Ukrainian airspace, though it is possible we could park an aircraft carrier battle group in the Black Sea.  That’s an extraordinarily risky proposition when you intend to poke the Russian bear within easy reach of their air assets.  We are poorly positioned, and Putin knows it. He’s been watching and assessing NATO for decades.  He knows our NATO allies have barely maintained their responsibilities in the alliance.  He knows they’ve all been cheating.  He knows they are all incredibly weak, and weakened more by their oppressions of their own populations as part of their COVID responses.  He knows they’ve repressed their own dissidents, and he can legitimately throw the political dagger of “hypocrisy” at them with no trouble.

He also knows that America is now weak, with obviously weak and ineffectual leadership that is more concerned with punishing their own countrymen than in prosecuting a war in a country most of the corrupt US leaders would sooner see destroyed, in part to hide their corruption over decades. Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry and Mitt Romney along with their adult children and many others in the DC cocktail-party circuit would be only too happy if Ukraine’s current leadership came to an obscure and quiet end.  Between 1999-2014, the Clinton foundation carted over $10 million dollars from the oligarchs there.  They’ve used it as their personal piggy-bank for more than two decades, laundering money in and out of that small and easily corrupted country.  Their current president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, is apparently an actual reformer, and none of them can tolerate that, particularly Putin, who has used it as the base from which to compromise Western politicians, particularly Americans, none of whose names are Trump.

The only question in Washington DC is how to play it for maximum waggage. (As in wag-the-dog.) None of the people now in charge in DC have any intention of rescuing Zelenskiy.  The truth is that they want him gone for all the same reasons Putin does. He can’t have Zelenskiy or his reformer government burning his purchased assets in Washington. It’s better to make it all just go away, and to bury any evidence or witnesses with it.  Others had suggested that the Russian “Invasion of Ukraine” narrative had been an entirely invented story line to give Biden a moment to talk and act tough to distract from the massive failures of his administration, but as facts on the ground now demonstrate, the threat was always very real.  Maintaining an Army in the field is expensive, and the larger the force, the more expensive and difficult it becomes. When it was clear that Putin had more than one-hundred-thousand troops deployed along the borders of Ukraine, it became clear to me that this was more than idle bluffing.

It could be observed that the pronouncements from both the White House and the State Department seemed almost to goad Putin into attacking.  On the one hand, they made threats that all parties knew were idle, while on the other, they openly admitted their inability and unwillingness to do much to stop it. “You’d better not, or we’ll kick your ass, even though we’re in no position to do so, and really don’t have the resolve to do so,” they effectively blustered and admitted at once.

There’s one other issue I’d like to tackle, and it’s with those who seem to be insisting “we MUST do something.” This element doesn’t seem to like that the vast bulk of the American people seem understandably to have no interest in doing much about the situation in Ukraine.  Polls seem to suggest that something like thirty percent of Democrats and twenty percent of Republicans believe the US should have any significant role in Ukraine.  To this element in our country, I suggest they take a look around and smell the crap they’re shoveling.  One, a radio host I have always liked, pointed out for the second consecutive day that after all, ours is a volunteer military, as if that means something to the argument for going to war, and he’s right, it does: A volunteer military requires the people to follow orders just like a conscripted military, with the difference that what makes that volunteer force viable is their understanding that their chain of command will not make frivolous or futile use of them. It’s one of only a couple of times in my history of listening to Mark Levin that I very nearly turned him off. I know there are dolts who have come to believe, inexplicably, that the killer Putin is some sort of good guy in disguise, but I’m not one of those, and Mr. Levin ought to be more careful before he begins to conflate America First patriots with these.

I don’t know what’s in Mr. Levin’s head when he says a thing like that.  I was a volunteer too, when I was fortunate enough to have a great commander-in-chief in President Ronald Reagan.  Neither was he without flaws.  Eight days before I reported for Basic Training, 241 servicemembers – Marines(220), Sailors(18) and Soldiers(3) – were slaughtered in Beirut.  When I went through boot camp, the mostly Vietnam combat veteran drill instructors all believed we were inevitably going to war.  We believed it too.  They drilled us like it, and they trained us with a vigor and intensity prior classes that year probably hadn’t experienced.  They were tough as nails, maybe more than usual, because they believed we trainees would be called upon to go to Lebanon.  That call never came, but I believe to this day that every one of us who graduated that training cycle were beneficiaries, because they more scrupulously got rid of the duds, pushed us to the physical, emotional, and intellectual limits, making us better soldiers.  The point is that President Ronald Reagan did not send in more Marines, Sailors, or Soldiers.  In point of fact, he pulled them out.  When that was the result, I remember that the sentiment in the military community was not all that happy about it.  Nobody wants to see their fellow servicemembers slaughtered, particularly to no purpose, and definitely without punitive response.  At the time, it didn’t sit well, even though it was potentially our necks on the line had Reagan sent more troops instead of withdrawing them.

In the longer run, however, I came to take a more mature view of what Reagan did, or more properly, didn’t do.  He evaluated the terrain, he looked at who we faced, and what the probability would be that more troops would merely make for more concentrated targets, far from home, to be attacked by small groups or individual suicide bombers where the mission was already murky and hadn’t borne the expected fruit. He looked at our allies in the region, and how he might augment and support the mission, and finally decided there wasn’t an attainable military objective that could be reasonably achieved without unreasonable losses.  In short, President Reagan made an entirely rational choice.  He likely wanted retribution against them as much as any of us. He wrote the hundreds of letters to wives and mothers and fathers and children.  He knew the unambiguous costs. Strangely, I would later intersect with Reagan’s foreign policy again, in April 1986, when a Berlin discotheque was bombed, killing US Servicemembers.  It was a strange turn of events that led my unit to serve briefly as replacements in Berlin in September of that year. Reagan did exact a punishment on the bad guys in this case, being Ghaddafi and his ring of terrorist henchmen, within ten days sending a bombing raid to Tripoli that nearly got the “Colonel.”

My point in all of this is that it’s very easy to look at the situation in Ukraine and desire to be able to put a stop to it. The sickening truth is that when we pretended, starting with President George HW Bush, that there was some “peace dividend” to be obtained from the end of the Cold War, it was foolishness, and an instance of utter stupidity that only anti-military pukes like the Clintons could love.  They exploited it, too.  Rather than realizing that the “peace dividend” from the ending of the Cold War was peace itself, we pretended that we could reduce our defense spending.  Adjusting for inflation, to spend at our Cold War defense-spending peak in 1986, a year in which we spent an astounding $295 billion, in today’s dollars, we should be spending roughly $1.2 trillion.  Instead, in 2019, we were spending roughly $740 billion.  At the turn of the century, after two terms of Clinton, we had fallen to $320 billion when we ought to have been closer to $500 billion in inflation-adjusted dollars, and the percentage of GDP expended on our military had fallen from 6.63% in 1986 to 3.11% in 2000.  Even now, we’re only slightly better, at 3.41% of GDP, as of 2019, so that we’re at slightly more than half as much military spending as a percentage of our GDP than we had been in 1986, a time when many, myself included, believe the US Army was at or near its peak in training and morale. (See stats here.)

Europe is far worse. Trump was not only right about European nations’ contributions to NATO, but their underlying defense expenditures are cratering. Since Trump left, they’ve fallen off a cliff, with reports that the German Army couldn’t deploy sufficient forces to repel successfully much of anything.  In short, Europe has left themselves virtually defenseless, with the brief exception of the period of Trump’s presidency, with only new NATO member Poland substantially upholding the promise of expending at least two percent of their national GDP on defense.  The United States has been bearing the burdens of defending Europe for most of a century now, yet we cannot get them to pay to defend themselves, and there is no will under the current administration in Washington DC to hold NATO’s feet to the fire. In 2020, Germany barely attained 1.57% of its GDP in defense spending, and that was after extensive prodding from President Trump. When he took office, the Germans were spending roughly 1.1% on defense.  In short, don’t look to Berlin for help.

This is the realistic assessment of the terrain in Europe: NATO has fallen into severe disrepair, from the end of the Cold War, until Trump came along to prod them beginning in 2017, but has since fallen back into the same rut, with the blame naturally being placed on CoVid19. At this point, the United States should be telling NATO: “That’s it. We’re cutting you off. We’re bringing home our troops unless you get to your spending goals AND make up for all the years of shortfalls within the decade.”

Of course, we’re no more likely to get that from this administration that we are to have a competent president, never mind commander-in-chief. More, this administration is incapable of waging an effective war of any kind, anywhere, at any time. They’ve diverted our military into concerns with all things “woke,” and if you think this is Ronald Reagan’s military of 1986, technology notwithstanding, you need your head examined.  Quickly.  Yes, of course we still have some good war-fighters in our military, but they’re now a pathetic minority within the ranks, and in the officer corps, they’re getting pretty thin as the service academies have been infiltrated by more and more social justice schlock, as modern “education” theories take precedence over what had traditionally worked.  I would like you to watch the first six and one-fourth minutes of this episode of Bannon’s War Room. In those first few minutes, he presents what he calls his “cold open,” and in it are various clips, including three recruiting ads, one for NATO, one for the Russian Army, and one for the US Army.  If you don’t see the problem, again, you need your head examined:


Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been reporting to you the state of our nation, and more generally, or our globe in one way or another for more than a decade at this web address. While my posts have been more infrequent in recent years, it’s not for a lack of concern.  People are foolishly insisting now that “we must do something,” but look at the state of our country.  I ask them: What would you have us do?  We have feckless leaders, corrupt and intransigent to the suffering and travails of the American people.  We have a military that, but for a brief reprieve under Trump, has been diminished and demolished, it’s morale wrecked along with its ethos.  We have a corrupted Justice Department that behaves as the hitmen for the government mafia.  We have an FBI that actively plots to entrap citizens, in shenanigans of that agency’s complete contrivance and invention.  We have a Department of State that openly plots against elected presidents it does not like, and we have an intelligence community that actively seeks to surveil and undermine a president it did not and would not obey.  We have an opposition party that barely musters any sort of fight against any of this, in large measure because they’re not really opposed.  We have public health officials who collude with big pharma to poison the American people and hide the data. We have whole segments of the population committed to destroying the country from within, including local officials, many bought-off by globalist pigs like Soros and Schwab.  You actually expect, in this condition, and in this state of being, that the remarkably few American people who realize what is going on, to volunteer their children into a war on behalf of this? Of this???

Do not tell me that we must go to war with the President we’ve got. I’m heartbroken at what I’ve seen thus far from Ukraine, like any other compassionate, thoughtful human must be.  I know that Putin’s mission is to exterminate Zelenskiy and his entire cabinet. His intention is to expunge them from the face of the globe.  Worse, the scumbags running Washington DC have every reason to help him do so.  There’s too much evidence of their corruption over in that tiny country.  There’s too much evidence of how they were controlled from the Kremlin. They don’t want to save Zelenskiy or Ukraine.  They want to bury Zelenskiy and his cabinet, they’re willing to burn Ukraine to the ground to do it, and they’re helping Putin carry it out.  Meanwhile, the American economy is spiraling into a stagflationary period that will make the Carter years look like a boom.  (It was once a joke that Jimmy Carter was thankful to Obama, and then Biden(but I repeat myself) for knocking him from the top of the “worst president’s ever” list, but nobody’s really laughing any longer. We’re in freefall, and every sensible person knows it.)

In the midst of all of this, those of you who wish to “do something” need to get a grip on your emotions, and understand what we’re really up against now.  We’re fighting for the survival of this country, right here, right now.  That great wealth or influence might offer insulation to some is no excuse for the indifference in the sentiment contained in the idea that Americans are somehow defective if they don’t wish to rush off to war against Vladimir Putin in Ukraine.  We know it’s another nasty set-up, just like all the ones deployed against us here at home.  We know the score.  We know, because every damned “conspiracy theory” (or most of them) of the last two decades have been proven mostly true.  We know Zelenskiy is the good guy.  We know.  Meanwhile, we listen to buffoons like Lindsey Graham, whose military experience consisted of walking papers around a Judge Advocate General’s office, pontificate about the privations we will suffer due to this crisis.  It’s not enough as it is, you see; Goober would have us suffer more.

Now I have to endure a berating monologue from a radio host I have long supported because I’m in no hurry to see my younger, ill-prepared brethren in uniform sent off to do something somewhere? For what purpose? To what end? For the sake of the need to “do something?” No sir.  I will not support going to war with this class of criminals who run our country. I will not support the spilling of so much as one drop of their blood on behalf of these cretins.  They’ve spent decades demolishing the country, and it’s not just the Democrats, though they’re today the mob bosses in charge.  When we had a president who was not part of their mob, they tried, like the gangsters they are, to take him out in any way that they could.  They used their vast criminal enterprise, posing as lawful suits at the bar of corrupt courts, undermining the integrity of our election, all because Trump had to go.

Years ago, I counseled young people to serve a term of enlistment in the military if their life plans were not firm after finishing high school. I told them it was the best thing they could do for themselves, while also serving their country.  It was true in my time, but it hasn’t been for most of a half-generation.  Even in Trump’s time, the military was already thoroughly undermined from the top, ever since Obama purged the Generals now more than a decade ago.

I truly do feel terribly for the Ukrainian people.  I know that like most ordinary people everywhere, they simply want to be left to live their lives, mostly in peace.  I know their current president is a reformer, and if it were possible, I would try to rescue he and his countrymen from the Russians.  The problem is that it is not currently possible.  More, the people running this country don’t actually want it saved.  I am as powerless to change that today, in the here and now, as any other American.  Shall we overthrow this government so that we can retroactively spend the defense dollars we should have spent, and undo all the stupidity and malfeasances of the last three decades? How will that help Zelenskiy?  More, we didn’t raise a credible effort to overthrow this government when it conspired against the President we elected. We didn’t raise a credible effort to overthrow this government when it obviously conspired with various state and local officials and NGOs to steal our presidential election and elections for lower offices.  It’s not merely Joe and Kamala who are illegitimate. Chuck Schumer is illegitimate in his leadership position, because neither Mark Kelly nor Rafael Warnock, among others, actually won their races.  Nancy Pelosi is illegitimate, because there were at least a half-dozen closely contested races that were likely impacted by the same cheating.  Do you really believe John James lost his Senate race in Michigan?  I don’t.

No, Mr. Levin, don’t tell me we should spill blood or treasure, no matter how strongly we might feel about it, for the sake of Ukraine or President Zelenskiy.  Until we spill all the blood and treasure needed to rescue our own fallen nation, don’t dare speak of it to me. You haven’t earned the right.  If you wish to characterize me as America First, as though it were a slur of some kind, so be it. I’ll stand by it. Don’t worry, I won’t burn any of the autographed books that fill half a shelf, in part not only because I hate book-burners and wanton, pointless destruction, but also because, with the way things are rapidly heading, I may need them soon for that purpose to cook my supper. Shall we go to war with the president we’ve got?  Respectfully, that depends on the contextual meaning of “with,” sir.  With him in Ukraine?

Hell no.

 

Editor’s Note: I’ve been a big fan of Mark Levin for a long time, and in the past, I’ve contributed to the Landmark Legal Foundation, of which he served as President for several years.  I don’t mean here to personally attack Mr. Levin, but I fail to understand his point of view on this particular issue. I always feel badly when I find myself at severe disagreement with the Great One, but on this point, I will not demur.  Our country cannot now defend itself, and its leaders prevent its agents and officers from defending even our Southern border.  They file suits at law against states, like my own, who attempt to enforce the laws of the United States, and even when ordered by courts to do so, effectively play a stalling game, and a game of “you can’t make me” with federal judges who dare to rule against them, up to and including the Supreme Court. So long as we have a lawless government, I support only wars of immediate existential circumstances for the United States. I swore an oath to the Constitution of the United States, and it does not expire, no matter who now has claimed the authority to ignore it.

Oh Canada! Our Canadian Neighbors Rally Against Evil

Friday, February 11th, 2022

Glorious and Free

Every American’s heart should swell with pride when they see the Canadian Truckers.  Despite being maligned and falsely attacked by the Canadian State Media, owned, funded and bailed-out with taxpayer dollars, the Freedom Truckers across the frozen tundra to our North are behaving marvelously. They’re fighting back with common sense, good-natured loved of their fellow Canadians, and a relentless desire to see their previous state of freedom restored.  I am proud of our Canadian neighbors, beset with far worse lockdowns and mandates than even the people of California and New York and Michigan.  Through it all, they’ve maintained their peaceful dignity even as their own government lies to them, lies about them, and conspires to destroy them. The broader body of the Canadian people are catching-on quickly, too.  They’re coming to realize that their Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, and his cabinet of cronies are waging war against the Canadian people.  They’re seeing the evidence with their own eyes that their media is completely broken, and has betrayed them all.  It’s a rare media outlet, mostly independents, in the great white North, that will bother to tell you the truth.  RebelNews is one of them, and they’ve even opened a dedicated website called ConvoyReports to provide full coverage. Ezra Levant is leading that organization, and at the rate of growth, as they’re the only significant news outlet in Canada giving fair and balanced coverage to the convoys, I expect more Canadians will be making more frequent use of that outlet, even as the flee from Canadian State Media in droves.  When the rest are obvious liars, to capture the market, you need only tell the simple truth. Levant’s outfit is doing just that.  With all of this going on, there’s something important we Americans must learn, and I’d urge you to investigate and learn it yourself: The Canadian Truckers, farmers, and ordinary citizens are winning, and we Americans can do the same. First, however, we must understand the nature of the monster that has overtaken us.  It’s time to unmask the enemy.  It’s time for Americans to understand they’re part of the same nightmare to which Canadians have only recently awakened.

For a good understanding of what the Canadians are up against, and what underlies the same crisis facing Americans, it’s important to know who’s behind all of this.  Yes, it’s the same cast of characters, and while in Canada, they’re different people, they’re no different in ideology, motivation, or purpose.  Here’s an excellent summary from Polly St. George, of AmazingPolly.net:


Ladies and gentlemen, that’s what we’re up against: Klaus Schwab and his parade of globalist infiltrators who have taken power in most governments in the West, and elsewhere. Ask Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX,) about his recent erasure from Schwab’s World Economic Forum “Young Global Leaders” page.  So you think Crenshaw behaved vaguely conservative when running, but immediately began siding with the RINO NeverTrumpers when he got to Washington DC?  No, Dan was always a traitor sell-out, ever since joining-up with Schwab’s parade of cronies.  If you wish to know whether the people in politics around you are part of Schwab’s infiltrators, they don’t hide it. They operate in the open. Here’s an example:

That’s right, while Dan had them drop his photo, others quickly screen-captured it before he could disappear his relationship with the WEF and Schwab.  Naturally, this is just a sample, and you may find that people in your state and local governments have been co-opted in similar fashion.  They mean to wreck the global economy to make it in their own corrupt image, and as a bonus, most of you won’t have a place in it.  That’s the kind of demonic scumbags against which we must now fight for our freedom and our lives.  Former New York mayor Bill De Blasio? He’s one of them.  Gavin Newsom, governor of California?  Yes, him too.  You would be amazed at the number of traitors that are in your government, ruling over you, on behalf of Klaus Schwab and his vision for a fourth industrial revolution that does not include you.

People talk about he New World Order, as if it’s a secret. These people have been pushing this for decades, and as Schwab brags in Polly’s video above, Vladimir Putin and half of Canada’s cabinet are plugged-in and part of their plot.  You think you’ve got control of your government?  When did the rise of the technocrats happen, and when did the administrative state get power from your founding documents?  How did this all happen?

Canadian Truckers fighting for you

If you think this is preposterous, or that somehow, you would have known had some mega-billionaire taken over the administration of your governments, at all levels, think again. It’s easy to buy collaborators when you control such vast wealth.  Do you really think Hillary Clinton made all that money on cattle futures by luck?  Do you really think that Dan Crenshaw is a top-ten congressional stock trader by mere good fortune?  These people are all crooked, and while you’ve suspected it, and you’ve wondered quietly how it could be that you’re losing your country, this is the answer.  The same is true across Europe, and it’s true in Australia and New Zealand. Every place you look, you will find Klaus Schwab has his claws deeply into the governments of nations, states, provinces, counties, and cities.  This ubiquitous influence-buying is an attack on your entire way of life, your freedoms, and ultimately, your lives.

What Americans can and must do is to support, loudly, and where the can, financially, all of these freedom movements, and they must evaluate every candidate that comes before them, standing for election, to remove all of the Klaus Schwab infiltrators everywhere they find them. If you’re still unfamiliar with Schwab and his band of cronies, go read about them on the World Economic Forum website. They’re not bashful, and while their agenda is disguised in polite terms, make no mistake about their actual aims. The Party of Davos is strongly rooted around the globeCorporations, large and small, along with every possible form of NGO is involved in this open conspiracy.

He wants to rule the world and he’s willing to rule over its ashes

The way to go after all of these people is to focus on the traitors in our own countries.  Washington DC, and most state capitals, along with other centers of finance and culture are overrun by them. The worst group of them maybe Schwab’s “Young Global Leaders,” a group of people recruited from around the globe to betray the people in their home countries. You can find them listed here, in searchable form.

Every place you find them, they are busy converting our country into their globalist view of a fourth industrial revolution.

This is the hidden face of the real enemy confronting us, and it’s the enemy behind Justin Trudeau and all that’s been done to the people of Canada since he rose to power there.  Our friends in Canada may not even be fully aware that this is what confronts them, but they’re awakening to the truth of it.  Recently, Justin Trudeau’s brother spoke out to unmask who Justin really serves. Around the world, they suffer under the same yoke, and they’re trying to hang it on Americans too.  This system of un-elected technocrats ruling by administrative fiat is their vision of the world.  The Great Reset is its form in implementation.


If you wish to live in liberty, you must join this fight, and you must lend support to the truckers in Canada, who now confront these monsters for all of us.

Let me leave you with this, from Tucker Carlson on Thursday night:

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):

 

OMG! Incitement of Unrest!

Friday, January 8th, 2021

Flashback: Ayanna Pressley Calling for Unrest in August

For those who may have missed it, in August, leftist nutjob, “Squad” member Ayanna Pressley(D-MA) called for unrest in the streets. Here’s the video:

I don’t want to hear another word from these people. Donald Trump NEVER said anything even approaching this. Not even close. This idiot went on MSDNC and called for unrest. This is a US Representative!
