Crossing the Thin Blue Line

Sunday, February 6th, 2022

Time to cross the line

Readers of this site will know that I’ve always supported our police as they struggle to keep the peace and pursue the bad guys who prey upon our property, our families, and our lives. There’s no doubt that the police are vital to our civilization, because they stand as the thin blue line between chaos and normalcy.  We support our police because they provide a service that is often ghastly in terms of its impact on the human psyche.  Day after day, night after night, they go out to face the worst situations that arise.  Too often, they come up against the worst, most vile offerings of the dark side of humanity, and most days, in most situations, acquit themselves with courage, honor, and justice. Some of them lose their lives, or are terribly maimed for their efforts on our behalf. There’s an important bargain we make with our law-enforcers, and our part in that bargain is our support when times get tough, but there’s an implicit part of the bargain that’s easy to overlook. It’s the part of the bargain hardest for our police officers, because it comes down to dollars and cents, and it means doing the right thing even when there are costs. We expect them to follow orders, but we also should expect them to know when to decline and refuse orders that are not valid, just and moral.  The most difficult and courageous act of any officer is knowing when to say “no,” and to stand by that decision. It’s time for officers of the law to step across the line.

We are coming to difficult days in the history of our republic. We are beginning to see the first real indications that for some time, our political leaders aren’t elected, so much as selected. More and more, we see that they do not govern on our behalf, as the model of our republic declares, but instead rule over us, and in spite of our wishes, rather than in accordance with them. Worse, around the world, citizens of nations once considered part of “the free world” are awakening to the same problem.  What’s worse is that almost without exception, the citizens of those nations long ago yielded their right to keep and bear arms to varying degrees.  They no longer have the means of effective resistance should the worst come to fruition.  In those nations, we are seeing that their police are following the orders of their corrupt and increasingly tyrannical rulers.  It’s shocking to see what’s being done in nations like Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Austria, Germany, and France, along with most of the rest of Europe. Everywhere you look, in the face of peaceful demonstrations, governments are using provocateurs to stage attacks in order to justify crackdowns on their populations.  This can’t happen unless the police forces cooperate and conspire with the rulers against their own citizens.

To show you what’s afoot, and why it matters, I want to take you back a few days to Coutts, Alberta, in Canada and a situation that arose as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police confronted a group of the truckers blockading the border.  The RCMP had been given orders to tell the protestors to clear the road, or enforcement actions would begin. The important portion of this video clip begins when the speaker on behalf of the truckers, off camera, addresses the member of the RCMP speaking. In short, the trucker explains that the police have a duty to tell their masters to go to Hell, and to ignore their orders, and that they do have that ability. The RCMP officer says “that’s not going to happen.” Every person interested in freedom is right to ask “Why not?”

This is the issue of our time, and it’s an issue the police across the United States had ought to confront, as individuals, and as units of law enforcement. The people who they are being ordered to suppress are the people who have always, almost without fail, supported the police in the furtherance of their duties, their careers, and their salaries. These are the people who have supported the police with fundraisers and collection plates and every manner of good will when officers have fallen in the line of duty. These truckers, in this instance, are representative of the broadest class of working men and women who have always supported the law and law enforcement, right up to the point that the law became an untenable weapon being wielded against them.

Our cops need to understand this. I realize it is difficult for a man to look at his own personal burdens and place his own job in jeopardy. We all know this. Still, law enforcement must come to grasp the following: While they’ve been “essential personnel” throughout the course of this pandemic, their jobs were never under threat except by the “defund the police” movement. They have generally enjoyed broad support by the public, even as they participated in a system that closed businesses, issued citations, and every sort of great and small transgression against the rights of the people that they had sworn an oath to protect. While cops collected record overtime pay, the citizens against whom they’ve been used have been forced in to poverty and bankruptcy by the very people from whom these officers take orders.

Officers must grasp this. They are being divided from the people who actually fund their existence and turned as weapons against them.  Most law-abiding, working stiffs can see what is going on.  They know, as the truckers in this video knew, that they don’t have any beef with the cops.  They don’t have any desire whatever to resort to violence.  They don’t ever want to be forced into the position in which they must choose between taking up arms against the people upon whom they rely to enforce the laws that keep the peace, protect the properties and lives they enjoy, and who pursue the criminals that plague us all.

So here we arrive at an uneasy stand-off of the unwilling, for the moment, where neither side, the cops nor the protesters, have any desire to make combat against one another.  Still, the police are being issued orders from on high. Certainly, all but the psychotic few on either side must see that this is a monstrous situation.  It is the moral and ethical duty of the police to refuse such orders, to pretend not to hear them, and if they can’t, then to lay down their badges and guns and walk away.  Better, the police could in some cases take public officials into custody for breaches of the peace, for incitement, for official oppression, or whatever other such charges available to them.

The simple point is that the cops, virtually all of them, know the orders they’re being given are monstrous, and with each passing subsequent execution of those orders, the rulers will become more tyrannical and more willing to issue even more outrageous dicta. Even if it is another simple matter of practical calculus, officers should realize that they can support this regime of oppression no longer.  Here in the United States, deaths among the police reached an astounding 458 in-the-line fatalities in 2021.  Is it the working stiff imposing this on police, or is it their alleged “leaders,” who use them as cannon-fodder in a one-side war with felons of every description, wherein police are legally shackled but violent felons are released repeatedly to prey upon the citizens and the police?  Police should ask: “Who is the enemy, anyway?”

The law-abiding working-stiff may grouse about a speeding ticket or similar, but in the main, they mostly accept it as the cost of minor misbehavior and move on. They know, even as they sign the bottom of the citation, that the cop writing the ticket isn’t the problem, and isn’t the enemy.  The thin blue line has two sides, however, and if the cops forget this, to simply become the enforcement arm of a growing tyranny, they will find themselves abandoned from both sides. They will still and always face the villains who torment our society, but now they will lose the support of the people they’ve sworn to protect.  If this happens, the police will find themselves in a situation much worse than they have known. Even if they cannot quite grasp the moral chasm growing before them as they carry out the orders of our rulers, as a practical matter, they must be able to see the tragedy that awaits should the whole of the populace turn against them.

At our current rate of collapse, the day will too soon arrive in which officers of the law will be forced to choose. In time, the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines will also face this choice. It’s time to make that choice now, before the actual moment arrives, because when it does, the dangerous inertia of “just following orders” will lead to a catastrophe none wish to imagine.

It’s “For Their Own Good”

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.

 

 

Dumbing Down a Generation: Shock Study Finds Babies Living In Lockdowns Have 20 Percent Lower IQs

Saturday, August 14th, 2021

Wrecking a Generation

Every parent needs to see this. They need to know, right now: Masking and locking down harms your baby. Babies learn and develop intellectually by seeing and interacting with the faces of the adults and others around them. The Brown University study cited in the New York Post finds that the mean IQ dropped by 21 points. Folks, in the old standards, in older psychology text books going back a few decades before political correctness overran everything, and before the term “mental retardation” was considered a slur, an IQ lower than 80 was frequently classed as being “mildly retarded.” What’s worse is that the problem is permanent, and that the deficit in learning capacity is difficult to overcome the longer the isolation, masking and all the rest of the lockdown measures go on.  Worse, it’s not easily recoverable, if at all.  For eighteen months, Democrats and education officials have been pushing this lockdown/masking agenda. They’re literally dumbing-down your babies with your compliance. I’ve told you that I have believed we are under a widespread attack. Now we know your babies are also targets, and that by masking them, isolating them, and otherwise depriving them of natural early intellectual development, these babies are being stunted to a level that is more than harmful: This is catastrophic.

Imagine 20 years hence when you have a whole generation of barely functional adults whose mean IQ is twenty percent lower. In addition to the damage done to them personally, consider the damage that will be done to our entire society. This is abominable. These lockdown are and have always been abusive. Now we know they damage children for all their lives.

This MUST STOP NOW. Your babies must not be subjected to masked faces. Subjecting your children to this, particularly your infants and toddlers, is doing permanent harm to them.

Some health professionals and many activists have warned of this consequence for young children and babies since the beginning of the masking. Now, there’s no longer any doubt.
