Yan Report on Manufactured COVID19

Thursday, September 17th, 2020

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

The_Yan_Report

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

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

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

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

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

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

Civil War II: The Left’s Order of Battle

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

The War Is Against You

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Voting to Save America

One Last Chance

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

Twitter IS a Hate-Group

Thursday, June 4th, 2020

Conform or Die

On Sunday morning, and again Monday evening, I sent out a couple of tweets, including one aimed at President Trump, among others, suggesting that the old traditional policy of shooting rioters and looters on sight be adopted. Twitter suspended my account some time overnight on Monday because, they claimed, I was advocating harm to some specific person or persons. This is naturally absurd. By the standard they have applied, I cannot advocate for a whole class of murderers, for instance, to receive capital punishment. Some might even argue that being jailed is harm in and of itself.  Therefore, one mustn’t go on Twitter and advocate for incarceration.  Of course, the preposterous part of all of this is that I wasn’t talking about specific persons. I was addressing an entire class of persons known as “rioters” and “looters.” I’m not aware of any way by which Twitter’s prohibition against wishing harm on others is violated. All of this leads me to believe that Twitter’s management and corporate culture is one of extreme political bias. Instead of confronting actual hate, in pursuit of real threats and incitements to violence the likes of which they’ve been tolerating through the last week as rioters and looters use their platform to coordinate attacks, Twitter has thrown in with the devil, and has become a hate group.

Here are the “offending” tweets:

Violation of Twitter Policy?

You might disagree with my sentiment here, but I think we need to ask if this is really covered by Twitter’s policy, as described here:

Wishing, hoping or calling for serious harm on a person or group of people
We prohibit content that wishes, hopes, promotes, or expresses a desire for death, serious and lasting bodily harm, or serious disease against an entire protected category and/or individuals who may be members of that category. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Hoping that someone dies as a result of a serious disease, e.g., “I hope you get cancer and die.”

  • Wishing for someone to fall victim to a serious accident, e.g., “I wish that you would get run over by a car next time you run your mouth.”

  • Saying that a group of individuals deserve serious physical injury, e.g., “If this group of protesters don’t shut up, they deserve to be shot.”

Obviously, the first two aren’t covered. They’re undoubtedly hanging their hat on the third, but let’s examine that: “Protesters.”

You’ll note that I very carefully specify “rioters” and “looters.” Both of those are criminals. Protesters ARE NOT. The behavior for which I’m seeking a potentially lethal remedy is already criminal conduct. In most states, defending one’s person and property from rioters is already eligible for lethal force. If rioters and looters find themselves committing crimes and mayhem on my property, they will undoubtedly be confronted with lethal force. Lots and lots of it.

How about this one: “Child molesters and rapists should be sentenced to death.”

Will that pass the Twitter test?

Or for that matter, what about: “Murderers with Special Circumstances in Texas should receive the death penalty?”

If this last one doesn’t pass muster, we’d better call Greg Abbott and Bill Paxton to let them know that the Lone Star State had better never tweet about its capital punishment statutes. We wouldn’t want the State of Texas being placed in Twitter Jail.

What I’ve noticed is that Twitter is very one-sided. They have no problem with the monstrous advocacy of abortion all over their platform. The generally have no problem when the leftist throngs descend upon Twitter en masse to wish death and mayhem on conservatives, and seldom does a complaint result in real action against a leftist. There have been many instances of real threats, even aimed at the President, which most often go unnoticed(or at least without action) by Twitter. Meanwhile, if you’re a law-abiding American who happens to believe that only the severest possible penalties will act as an effective brake on the lawlessness to which we’ve been witness for more than a week, you’re the bad person, and Twitter will give no quarter.

I firmly believe that when the rule of law is itself under direct attack, when government at all levels is facing a naked insurrection that threatens the lives and properties of its citizens, government ought to rise to their defense with all the same tools to which the citizenry is entitled, and that means lethal force.

I guarantee you that if the rioters and looters breech the White House grounds, you’re going to see lethal force employed by the Secret Service. It will be ugly. The president of the United States is entitled to a full defense of his life and of his residence, no matter who the president may be at the moment, whether we collectively like him or hate her. We, the people of the United States, are no less deserving of that level of defense, and it is in fact the whole purpose for the existence of all legitimate government.

I don’t care what @Jack Dorsey of Twitter says about it. I don’t care what the leftist enforcers on Twitter say about it. There’s nothing wrong with advocating policies that would “cause harm” to people who are causing harm. What all of this evinces is the crass political bias that social media platforms impose on users, and too frequently, it’s all one direction. I am not in support of making threats against individuals, but I’ll also point out that my advocacy has never been about individuals, or even broad classes of people defined by anything other than behavior, i.e., lawlessness and criminal conduct. If we can no longer advocate on behalf of law and order on Twitter, then why does Twitter have rules for conduct? After all, they stress that their rules of the road are meant to prevent the platform from descending into chaos. I have no problem with that, but what is their remedy? Ultimately, you can be sentenced to Twitter-death, which means to be kicked off the platform entirely, your accounts closed and your access denied.  Twitter seems not to have a problem with a virtual death penalty on their own platform, but it’s also obvious that they tend to issue that severest of penalties primarily to conservatives. What does Twitter hate? Conservatives. What does Twitter hate? Republicans.  What does Twitter hate? Law and order.

I’ve created an account on Parler.com in order to begin moving away from Twitter. As more conservatives find themselves banned and suspended, I hope the migration will continue in earnest and that new platform will grow. It’s the only way to overcome Twitter’s hate.

 

Is Biden’s Senility an Act to Avoid Prosecution and Jail?

Thursday, May 21st, 2020

Patsy or Pro?

Listening to the audio of the phone-call in which then Vice President Joe Biden kept his promise to get more than one-billion dollars for Ukraine provided they would fire the prosecutor who was investigating his son, Hunter Biden, who had been a no-show member of the front company Burisma, it’s hard to believe that from then until now, he’s become as senile as his basement-bound appearances in recent days. One might begin to wonder if Biden is in such a thoroughly steep decline of his mental capacity whether he could even carry out the purely ceremonial aspects of the presidency, never mind actual decision-making. The other alternative is that Joe is faking it for the sake of avoiding prosecution. After all, QuidProJoe is pretty clearly caught in the following video making plain the nature of his criminal misuse of official US foreign policy:

Could he be faking his apparent senility?

This is beyond a string of gaffes. This man is either a serious actor who’s adept at faking senility, or he’s truly well into some form of dementia or other age-related disease of the mind.  Those diseases are quite sad, and of all the things that can happen to a person, slowly losing one’s intellect, memories, and basic capacity to attend to one’s own affairs is probably more frightening to most people than the prospect of death itself.

If Biden really is rapidly losing his mental capacity, he’ll never face the justice he deserves.  On the other hand, if he really is losing his mind, then the people around him, particularly his wife and children, are absolute monsters to let this farce of a campaign continue.  I think they intend to make Joe a scapegoat for the whole of #ObamaGate, and then to have the DOJ dismiss any charges due to the rapidly advancing senility of “poor ol’ Joe.”

The other possibility is that he’s faking it. That seems pretty far-fetched to me, but I suppose if one is attempting to avoid the sword of justice, one might very well be able to bring-off an Academy Awards level performance in convincing the world one is incompetent for trial.

I bring this to your attention because while the media plays along with Biden’s farcical campaign, I wanted you to know why they might be doing this. Bluntly, I believe Obama is behind this, and he’s using Biden, and he’s threatening Jill Biden to gain her compliance. Either that, or Biden is a much better actor than Tom Hanks. Patsy or pro? You decide.

 

#ObamaGate: We Need the Whole Truth

Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

Sleight of Hand

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(See the sidebar below.)

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

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

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

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

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

Sidebar:

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

A Comment Too Hot to Handle…

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

Texas Justice à la Commode

Wednesday, May 6th, 2020

Tyrant Judge Takes Dump on Justice

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

The New N-Word

Friday, May 1st, 2020

The ultimate term of derision

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Trump On Shutdown: “We Have to Open…”

Sunday, April 5th, 2020

We have to get back to work!

The whole thing is a put-on. I don’t mean there isn’t a virus, but the whole over-hyped panic is just that. On Thursday, this past week, I saw that there were real signs that the fog was lifting. People were beginning to question the whole thing. It’s not that anybody thinks Coronavirus 2019 isn’t real, but that the statistics were being questioned, and the models were being questioned, and finally, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx were being questioned.  More, the reality of the unemployment numbers was coming to light, as an additional 6.6 million Americans added to the unemployment rolls that had already surged by 3.3 million the week before. That’s basically 10 million Americans, whose jobs are gone. More, businesses are now going belly-up, unable to sustain themselves in a shutdown or even skeleton-crew condition.  Real people, with real businesses are losing their businesses, not because they did anything wrong, but because of some order by a government official. Those officials will all claim sovereign immunity to any lawsuits, but no matter what anybody claims, it is a real “taking” as the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Fifth Amendment defines it. They’re being wrecked, and their employees will have no jobs to which they can return. This must end. On Thursday, the American people finally realized it, and began to say so. Now, finally, two days later, it seems our President, already inclined to think along these lines, seemed to have gotten the message. In a lengthy briefing on Saturday, he said “We have to open…” He said it more than once.

After the debacle of the Fauci/Birx reliance on the statistical models, some of which were provided purportedly by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, people were beginning to question not only the obvious distance between projected death rates and reality, but also some of the underlying stories used to sell the panic. One YouTuber, channel name: AmazingPolly, who is an excellent researcher found some interesting problems with the video package prepared by the NYTimes about the catastrophe happening at the Elmhurst, Queens NY hospital. What’s interesting is that the video is now all in question. CBS famously aired footage that looked like a serious situation, allegedly in NYC, but actually from Italy.  Other footage and stills showed lines of coffins that were actually from a movie. The media is a pure propaganda arm of the Democrat Party. At this point, it truly is the Democrat-Media Complex. The idea is to sell panic. The idea is to push the country as far down into the ditch as is humanly possible, because there’s really no other way for them to defeat President Trump. They’re willing to wreck America to get rid of him, and to cause the death of additional Americans if necessary. There’s really no bottom to their black hole of hatred for this country. They see Trump and his supporters as the last obstacle to vanquishing America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, forever. This is not hyperbole. They hate us that much.

I know there is that segment of the readership who will assert this is some sort of conspiracy theory, but there’s no “theory” to it. The Democrat-Media Complex has conspired to create an apocalyptic narrative with COVID19.  The Washington Post already called Tom Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” for suggesting that the #WuFlu might have come from a Chinese Bio-Lab in Wuhan.  Now, they’re being forced to report that it may have indeed leaked from a Chinese laboratory, just miles from the “wet market” where the cover story has asserted this virus originated. H/T to Dan Bongino(Twitter handle @dbongino) for this tale of the despicable double-talk of the media. His episode Friday focused on the sickness of the Democrat-Media Complex. Watch it here if you have time:

I will tell you that the longer I observe the whole of our national polity, I am continually amazed at how absolutely disgusting is our so-called “Mainstream Media.” Sarah Palin had them pegged when she called them “Lamestream,” but lately, they seem to be more diabolical than that.

Back to the hospital in Elmhurst, Queens, why would they choose that hospital to target for their big scare story? On whom would this have the greatest effect? Amazing Polly figures that out for us, if we hadn’t guessed who might be from Queens, NY, who might be the target of a media disinformation campaign:

Every time I get the chance, I thank Polly for her work via Twitter. This video deserves a thorough watching. She admits up front that she can’t necessarily prove all of her conclusions, but she is always careful to provide documentation for the material she presents, in the information attached to her videos on YouTube. You can follow her on Twitter @99freemind. I don’t necessarily agree with her on everything, or subscribe to all the theories she presents, but I can tell you that she works very hard at her research, and she is very thorough, and also that she provides an alternative view of events and history that can offer a perspective that reveals new things the Lamestream Media will never, ever tell us. Give her a view if you haven’t already, and take the time to Like the videos of content creators like her and Dan Bongino.

Another person with whom you will cross paths if you research this overall CoronaVirus2019 shutdown is Candace Owens. Some of you will be familiar with her from FoxNews, or from other platforms, and on Twitter, she’s @RealCandaceO.  She has real courage in many respects, and one of them is her willingness to take on the #FakeNews, particularly with respect to issues of race, and also with the pigeon-holing of black Americans as Democrats.  She’s exposing those myths, and she has a new book coming out. Now, she’s exposing the governor of Connecticut who actually blamed the death of an infant on CoronaVirus when in fact, the death was due to being suffocated:

 

 

This sort of displacement of blame onto CoronaVirus is rampant in states run by Democrats. It’s being done to grab more of the federal relief money from the $2Trillion package that Congress passed last week.  It’s despicable, and it accounts for at least some of the mounting death toll being reported all over the news. It’s fraud. They’re mostly going to get away with it, since they compile the statistics, and they control the medical examiners, although these will mostly be considered “natural causes” and will never undergo autopsies.  I’m not suggesting that there are no CoronaVirus deaths, as I’m sure there are, but as I covered in my previous article, this is all being blown way out of proportion.  Now, we have even more evidence that this whole panic is contrived, and we also know the motive: This is all about elections, money, and power. What else? The idea here was to trap President Trump so that he would have to shut down the country. Instead, he left it to governors, as he should. He focused on the Federal response as is the job of the President.  In short, he took the steps appropriate to the President under our constitution, but this is also why the Democrat-Media Complex kept pressing the President to take more steps, and force a state quarantine in New York.

Today, at the press briefing by the President’s CoronaVirus Response Team, he made it plain: “We have to get back to work.”

Remember, if it’s bad for America, Democrats approve. If it’s bad for Trump, Democrats insist. The media is now so utterly broken that the smarmy reporters in the room can’t help but become snotty in their questioning of the President. If I were the President, I’d throw at least half of them off the White House grounds and tell their networks or papers to try again with somebody else.  There was never this kind of conduct toward President Obama. Not once.  Not even during his most miserable and provocative failures, when actual reporters would be expected to be more insistent in their questioning.  Here, the way these reporters talk to the President of the United States is an utter disgrace.  Even were I given the opportunity to question Barack Obama in the White House in the aftermath of Benghazi, I’d never have been so basically rude and disrespectful.  I certainly would have asked a couple seriously difficult questions. The problem here is that the media doesn’t really want any information.  They’re not really asking questions designed to reveal any news, but merely questions aimed at catching the President in some inconsistency, or in some sort of disagreement with one or more members of his team.  In some cases, they’re plainly argumentative.  Just once, in the eight years of the incompetent and corrupt Obama administration, they should have gone after that President with such fervent zeal.  Instead, they blithely pitched softballs that even the increasingly confused Joe Biden could hit out of the park.

Over the last few weeks, as the nation has attempted to deal with the WuFlu pandemic, one of the things that’s gotten short shrift is the economy.  We had an economy in pretty good condition by the middle of February, and as you’ll remember, unlike during the Obama administration when the jobs numbers were “unexpectedly poor,” instead our Department of Labor found itself having to upgrade the numbers in weeks following original reports that understated the economy’s performance.  Now, we’re losing jobs at a phenomenal rate, and President Trump has to do something to bring the economy back online soon, or the country will be wrecked.  Most of the small businesses shutting down are highly leveraged, and with a halt in revenues, they’re facing serious, perhaps catastrophic, consequences. The typical situation looks like a Mom-and-Pop shop of some sort, opened up a business on tight margins, perhaps by re-mortgaging a recently paid-off home. Now, shut down by order of some public official, usually a governor, county judge, city manager or mayor. they find themselves without revenue.  They have to lay off their employees, as a matter of pure financial survival, and then, within a month, they’re staring down the barrel of that debt service, and if they can’t service it, not only will they lose their business, but they might just lose everything. They’ll never be able to reopen.  They’ll never be able to call up employees and offer them their old jobs back. Instead, the avalanche will gather momentum and mass, with a mounting depression at the bottom of the hill.

I am reminded of a line by Bruce Willis in one of the many Die Hard sequels. The young guy he’s escorting to the FBI makes an off-hand remark about crashing the “system.” Willis’ character stops, and lets the kid have it a bit: “It’s not a system. It’s people!” Or something to that effect. His point was to say it is very easy to imagine shutting down a system like shutting down a computer or an assembly line.  For some reason, when people eliminate the myriad complications implied by specific, concrete human beings, it become easy to be cavalier about their disposition. The point Detective McClane was making is that “the system” is really people, and what you’re really talking about wrecking is the lives and dreams and aspirations and plans of real live people, just like you.

Democrats suffer from the same childish misunderstanding and unfocused view of the world around them. It’s easier to imagine an amorphous system that just gets “shut down.” The same is true of the economy.  They see it like turning off an engine.  Instead, it’s like putting a country’s worth of people into suspended animation, only without the preservative aspect.  The decay, the atrophy, the heart failures and the deaths begin to mount immediately. In short order, it’s much worse than any disease. Our country is much more complex than most people imagine, but the fundamentals of the situation are simple. We’re wrecking the economy, which means we’re wrecking businesses and that means we are wrecking people.  Each minute this goes on, more businesses are lost, and with them, jobs die. Most of them won’t be back, and this is where people who don’t understand the entrepreneurial cycle fail to see the real danger: Small business creates a sizable majority of jobs in the United States. If you’ve just gone out and created a business, and had it wrecked by a government-ordered closure, and probably lost substantial money, or worse, had your entire life’s work demolished, assuming you find yourself in the position to launch another business some day, would you? Why? The next time a virus comes along, the government might just shut you down again.

It isn’t simply that this response to this virus was overblown and entirely unnecessary, but that the entire methodology is bankrupt, unfeasible, and wrong. We must never permit this kind of shutdown again. Ever. Under any circumstance. We have created a situation that will take years to repair, if it can be fully repaired at all. Your individual rights are not and must not be subjected to the vagaries of virologists’ models. Your liberties must never be placed in the hands of governors, mayors, county judges, and other elected numb-skulls whose motives and decisions will always be dominated by politics, their public declarations to the contrary notwithstanding.

Ladies and gentlemen, the worst aspect of the great WuFlu shutdown of 2020 is the precedent set by permitting government to behave this way in the first place. The very idea that the government can order the shutdown of the country is a preposterous notion. This is tyranny, whether you’ve recognized it or not.  For the business owners whose concerns are now in serious jeopardy, if not already wrecked, this much is obvious. They’re carrying the largest burden in this entire fiasco, and those of us who do not bear their burdens should be thoughtful about the losses they face as a result. It is their lives and liberties, along with the properties of these entrepreneurs that have been cast onto the pyre of sacrifices created by this exercise of government authority.

I believe President Trump has been played, and the economy laid waste as a result of his desire to safeguard the lives of Americans. I believe the people upon whose guidance he relied are not all good people with innocent or virtuous motives. I also believe that certain elements opportunistically joined into this attack on our country. I know the President was trapped between doing what he believed at the time to be the best path for saving lives and what he knew would be catastrophic for the long-term economic and financial health of the country. I can forgive him for his motive of protecting and saving lives, but I’m less forgiving in another aspect: He should have recognized that the people around him were simply another brand of deep-state players, equally corrupt and equally apt to carry out a different form of a coup d’etat. If you don’t see that this has been the motive, I’d urge you to look more closely.

 

As one example, I want you to read this email from Dr. Fauci, first exposed by WikiLeaks:

The #ChinaWuhanCoronaVirus Panic Is Unnecessary and Contrived(Updated)

Monday, March 30th, 2020

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

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

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

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

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

  • Persistent Fever
  • Cough
  • Body Aches

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Think about that.

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

 

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

The Media Biden Bait-and-Switch

Thursday, March 12th, 2020

Democrat-Media Complex Circling the Wagon Around Joe Biden

It has already begun. Since it has become increasingly apparent that former Vice President Joe Biden will be the Democrats’ choice for 2020, the so-called mainstream media has begun to circle their wagons in a protective screen around him.  Editing videos to exclude his most ridiculous, madcap, and explosive remarks, they’re doing their level best to hide from you how far Joe Biden has run off his rails. It’s not just that they’re a little deceitful, or that they’re using slick editing and packaging, but that they’re on a wholesale propaganda campaign by which they’re going to completely re-write not only Joe Biden’s more ancient history, but also his entire present.  They’re going to hide from the world how truly bad Biden’s condition is, at least until they can get him elected and sworn-in. Then, and only then, will they let the truth out: Joe Biden is about three minutes away from drooling down his chin.  That’s when the replacement will happen.  The Democrats are going to pull a bait-and-switch built on lies.

“Here’s good, solid, moderate Lunch-Bucket Joe. You can trust him.” If they can manage to get him through to the oval office, it will become “Poor, poor Joe. He needs to be removed for his own good and the good of the country.”

This is all they’re up to, but to carry it off, they’re going to need to get a significant number of Americans to believe it. The party faithful will vote for him because he’s their guy. No other qualification is necessary.  The bulk of the Democrat Party is Yellow-Dog these days, but the people they need to convince are the independents. This group of voters are frequently what I call “Windsocks.”  They’ll go whichever way the political and/or cultural winds are blowing.

If you want to defeat Joe Biden’s running mate(because that’s what will be at stake,) you’ll need to make that case to the Windsocks.

It’s going to astonish you.  You will come to see that the Democrat-Media Complex[DMC] is more capable than you had feared.  They’re going to whitewash Creepy Joe Biden until the casual observer(most Americans) will come to believe he’s “not so bad.” That’s the aim.  That’s the purpose for which all of these DMC cretins are now assembling, and it’s against this narrative which we must fight.

The truth is that Joe Biden has been a creepy, corrupt politician for years.  The fact is that he’s gotten away with it by being a loyal part of the DC Uni-Party.  In the end, however, the Democrats are going to pitch him over the side when it comes time.  In the mean time, they have a tall order: They need to draw the American people into electing this pig in a poke, While the #WuFlu is an opportunist’s goldmine for the Democrats, it’s just part of their arsenal. They’re going to keep this going all year long. Finally, for the sake of normalcy, they’re hoping the Windsocks will vote their way, overlooking all of Biden’s shortcomings.

That’s the game.

Donald Trump’s “Read My Lips” Moment

Friday, August 9th, 2019

Will he fold?

My friend and self-described “brother-from-another-mother” Youtube star Mr. L, of Mr. L’s Tavern described it correctly today. In a discussion of the choice facing President Trump with the entire Red Flag Law/Gun Control agenda, he correctly pointed to the fact that the President has made too many promises with too much resolute vigor to retreat at this late date.  To do so risks certain alienation of a substantial portion of his loyal base.  In 1990, in the midst of a negotiation with Democrats over the budget, President George H.W. Bush went along with the Democrats on a luxury tax and a number of other items.  It resulted in a shallow recession, but more importantly, it meant that he had forsaken his 1988 promise to Republicans: “Read my lips, NO NEW TAXES!” In 1992, Democrats, who had shoved the taxes down his throat because THEY had wanted them, took the occasion of his tax increases to hang the entire albatross around his neck. Ross Perot and Bill Clinton mocked him endlessly. The Democrats attacked and attacked. Most importantly, however, the base of the GOP abandoned him. It could even be said that the portion of the party that abandoned the elder Bush would come to be the Trump wing of the party.  In the same way, in 2015-16, Donald Trump promised repeatedly to protect your second amendment rights. No small number of conservatives supported him on this basis alone. Here we stand in 2018, and Donald Trump’s “Read My Lips” moment has arrived, just as Mr. L has described.  Well, President Trump? Will he fail us as George H.W. Bush and so many other ordinary politicians have done in the past?  We will find out in due course, naturally, but I don’t believe there’s any way for Mr. Trump to avoid his “Read My Lips” moment, and the Democrats and NeverTrump Republicans know it.

It’s why they’re pushing him so hard. It’s not so much a problem that conservatives will find another candidate, as they will simply stay home, unwilling to support him. Donald Trump should fear that, because it’s what ultimately killed McCain and Romney in their bids for the presidency. Too many conservatives stayed home.

If he goes along with all of this, that’s just what I’m going to do.

The Challenge We Face With Ignorance About Guns

Thursday, August 8th, 2019

Friends?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mourning for America

Mourning for America

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sticking it to the Man: Break the Social Media Tyrants

Social Media Tyranny on Trial

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

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

 

We Must Not Let Anything Go

Wednesday, April 10th, 2019

Time to Face the Music

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Time for the Sword

Time for the Sword

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Tuesday, March 19th, 2019

Trump Can Save the World… Or at least the Internet

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Go get ’em, President Trump!

 

McCain Pimped Hoax Trump Dossier

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

The Ghost of Betrayals Past

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

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

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

 

Update: Barr Validates Emergency Declaration

Barr Lays Down the Law

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

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

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

Donald Trump Couldn’t Be Permitted to Win in 2016

Saturday, March 16th, 2019

An Haughty Spirit Before a Fall?

One of the questions many people have about the allegations of President Obama’s instigation and ongoing involvement in the spying against the Trump campaign in 2016 is “Why would he risk it?” The argument goes that after two terms, he was done, and there’d be no reason to risk his future for the sake of a Hillary Clinton victory.  It’s well known that there was no particular love between the Clintons and Obamas, and some would argue the opposite, so why go out on a limb for Hillary Clinton?  I think I understand the answer to this question, and it really comes down to ego.  Barack Obama was one of the most arrogantly inept men ever to be elected President.  He had no skills or experience to indicate he had any qualification for the office, and as I’ve covered elsewhere on this site, even his legal qualification remains in question.  He had a particular hatred of Donald Trump, however, and it centered around that very question of legal qualification and Donald Trump’s raising of that question more than two years into Obama’s presidency.  It came down to Obama’s ego, and the fact that from his point of view, his definitive statements assuring America and the world that Donald Trump would not be president would be fulfilled.

At a Leaders Summit of the Asian Nations, held in Rancho Mirage, CA , during the height of the 2016 election primaries, on February 16th, Barack Obama had the following exchange with a reporter:

Obama’s statement in answer to the reporter’s leading question was dripping with contemptuous hubris.  Here we see the classic Barack Obama, affecting a tone and a manner no achievement of his political career had earned, dismissively asserting that Donald Trump could not be president because the American people were too wise, presumably because they’d elected him, after all.  This sort of pandering, that he ironically lambastes in his answer, is the perfect example of why Obama felt compelled to see to it that his pronouncements on Trump’s presidential future would come true.

From the time of his reiteration of this statement, it is now clear, as it was disclosed in the testimony of Lisa Page, Obama wanted to be in on every step of the sabotage of their fake investigation.  We now have good reason to believe Senator Ted Cruz(R-TX) was also targeted by the Obama operation, and for the same reason. As my readers will remember, apart from the very stubborn John Kasich(R-OH), the primaries came down to Cruz and Trump as the last remaining contenders for the GOP nomination.  Obama would cover the Democrats’ bases: Sabotage them all!

There’s no doubt in my mind, having re-watched the clip above, that Barack Obama’s motive for risking his future and reputation to sabotage Donald Trump now makes perfect sense:  He’d already repeatedly staked his reputation that Donald Trump would not win the presidency. For the sake of his own fragile ego, and for the sake of his credibility with the fawning press, Donald Trump could not be allowed to win the presidency.  Throughout his entire presidency, from the incident with his Harvard professor friend, Henry Louis Gates Jr, and the Cambridge Police, in which he said the police “acted stupidly,” he has always demonstrated his runaway arrogance.

Proverbs 16:18 counsels:

“Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”

Frequently shortened to “Pride goeth before a fall,” if ever there had been a President of the United States to whom this bit of wisdom precisely applies, I believe it is Barack Hussein Obama II.  His pride led him to commit crimes in order to make his pronouncements come true, although some also allege darker, more directly criminal motives.  Whether those allegations are true or false, this one, pride, is certainly enough.  In any event, Obama had decided that Trump must not be permitted to win the Presidency.  He had motive, means, and opportunity. There is evidence now that he wanted to be updated on the progress of these schemes as they progressed.  Sometimes, the motive is lust or greed.  Often it’s simple pride. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the guiltiest party in the whole Russia-Collusion Hoax: Barack Hussein Obama.  Let us hope that justice will be done.

After all, given this bit, his pride deserves it:

 

Ameriphobia

Ameriphobia: The irrational fear and hatred of America and Americans

If you say the least little thing about Islam and its adherents, you are immediately labeled. It is said of this despicable attack on a New Zealand mosque that the killer had been motivated by Islamophobia, the irrational fear and resultant hatred of people of the Islamic tradition.  This we are told is the nature of the motive behind the maniac who undertook this attack, and as a result, they point to Donald Trump(and his supporters, and other conservatives) because he once called for a ban on some Muslim migrants. On September the 12th, 2001, elements in the media began to arise to warn us to avoid falling prey to Islamophobic sentiments. The smoke-clouds had not yet cleared, and the fires within the rubble-pile at ground zero was still burning as CNN’s website published an article telling us that hate-crimes against Muslims were on the rise in the wake of the attack. The actual death toll was still unknown, but we knew the attack had killed at least 2,500 people, mostly Americans, and CNN was worried about an alleged rise in hate-crimes.  Ladies and gentlemen, this is despicable, and what I want to know is when we are going to create a label of our own, for once and for all, to be applied equally to the 9/11 attackers and to CNN: These people who are consumed with an irrational fear and loathing of America must hereafter be known as Ameriphobes, and their affliction must be called what it is: Ameriphobia.

Ameriphobia is the irrational fear and the hatred it generates against America and Americans.  It’s been widespread through much of the world for most of the last one-hundred years, but until the last few decades, it prevailed mainly among our enemies. Now, like a cancer, it has spread into the homeland, into our culture, into academia, government, and especially the media.  Those who spew their hatred against America and Americans are responsible for the irrational fear that drives the anti-American killers. Think of it: The 9/11 attacks were carried out by people militantly radicalized against America and Americans.  The killers in San Bernandino, CA, were motivated by the same irrational fear and loathing. In 2016, this disease of Ameriphobia even led government agents to try to undermine the candidacy, and then the presidency, of the pro-American nominee in the race, attempting a bloodless coup d’etat against the legitimately elected President of the United States.

Worst of all, the Ameriphobes have now succeeded in recruiting Republican betrayers to the cause.  Driven by this same irrational fear, they now agitate in the United States Senate against the President of the United States.  Secretly, they call themselves #NeverTrumpers, because they oppose President Trump, the openly America-first President, but in truth, what they really are is #AmericaLasters. The idea of a sovereign America, with sovereign American citizens, is so frightening to them that they can conceive of no goal more important than to block open America’s borders so that Americans can be overrun and replaced. The Democrats are so consumed with Ameriphobia that they cannot conceal their hatred any longer.  They now openly agitate against resolutions condemning the idea that illegal aliens would be permitted to vote against Americans and America.

In the wake of the shooting in New Zealand, these media maniacs have become consumed with Ameriphobia. Now twenty-eight months into an unremitting hatred of President Trump,  and a fear that America will be made great again, they feel compelled to connect monstrous events that occurred half a world away in a foreign country to the President of the United States.  Think of the preposterously irrational emotions behinds such a ridiculous contrivance! What, other than pure and unadulterated Ameriphobia, could possibly drive such hatred?  Ladies, and gentlemen, we must call them out wherever and whenever we see it, and it must be plain for all to see: The irrational fear and hatred of America and Americans has gone so far that we now have self-hating Americans. Born to this country, raised in the swaddling of the liberty she provides, they have been brain-washed to perceive this gentle embrace as an attack. They are terrified. Freedom is awful, they have been convinced to believe. This is the deadly nature of Ameriphobia, and it must be defeated.  Only Americans who love lives and cherish their country will understand that fear and hatred of America and Americans is self-destructive disease of the mind.

It’s not too late. We can defeat Ameriphobia and Ameriphobes, but to do so, we will first need to acknowledge that this disease is real, dangerous. It poses an existential threat against all we love, whether its adherents are Muslims or Leftists or any other form of statist.  It doesn’t matter whether it arises abroad or upon our shores, we must combat it and reject it at every turn. It’s time to cast out Ameriphobes because we cannot bear their irrational hatred any longer, and we must not shrink from identifying it.  At every turn, we must condemn Ameriphobia.  Our survival depends on it.

UK Government Betrayal Continues – A Lesson for American Patriots

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

One Big Joke to the Elite

This is despicable. Once again, we see that the people of the UK voted to leave the European Union, and once again we can see that their government has betrayed them. I believe there’s only one way for the people of Britain to get that for which they voted: They’re going to need to go on strike and close down Londonistan, making the biggest stink in that country since we Americans decided to part ways in 1776.  It’s time for the British people to cast off their government that will not come to heel, and instead form a new one composed of people who will adhere to the law and to the promises of their government.  What really needs to happen is that the people of Britain need to join their continental brethren in donning the yellow vests.  The lie has been that the yellow vest protests were about a gasoline tax.  That’s never been the truth, but the press in Europe is even more aligned with the globalists than our media here. Now, their Parliament has voted to seek a delay to Brexit. Unless and until the British people get angry to the very brink of violence, their government is going to continue betraying them.  It’s the same as here in the US, and it’s a warning we Americans must perceive and heed: Our government isn’t concerned with the good or will of the people any longer, and they’re willing to import new people to nullify our votes.

If the people of Britain permit this, whether or not they personally favor Brexit, they might just as well admit they are slaves and submit forthwith. I feel bad for the free people of the UK, as their country is being stolen from them.  Sadly, I have no time to grieve as an American, who now perceives the approach of the same doom, at the hands of people equally intent upon betraying us.

 

Ilhan Omar and Her Party of Hate

The Hateful New Democrats’ New Leader

When the newly seated Democrat majority passed a change to House rules permitting the wearing of the hijab in the House chamber, one might have guessed that it didn’t bode well for that institution.  Incoming freshman Representative Ilhan Omar(D-MN) has been on a non-stop anti-Jew, anti-Israel tirade for all of her public life, and just as she expected Democrats to bulldoze rules to permit her to wear her headgear in the House, she expects them to let her go on with her hate without any restraint.  After a string of non-apology apologies, and after much gnashing of teeth in her party’s caucus, the answer is clear: The Democrat Party is endorsing her brand of hatred, as they launch their latest jihad against the American people.  It’s her party now, and it’s a party of hate.

In one instance after another, Omar has repeatedly played on anti-semitic stereotypes and slurs to advance her cause.  The shocking part has been that the fools in her party have accepted it.  They’ve tolerated it.  They will not sanction her for it, and they will not take responsibility for their collective refusal to act.  Instead, they’ve introduced a neutered, generic resolution condemning hate. It’s caused a split in the Democrat Party in the House, with the few remaining semi-sane Democrats insisting that the language must be stronger. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi(D-CA) has said the new version of the resolution will not mention Omar directly.

This is the Democrat Party of 2019: It’s a barely-restrained, hate-filled, pile of identity-politics.  They have fallen so far that they cannot even agree within their caucus about the evils of anti-semitism.  Instead, they offer platitudes about generic hate.

I have no problem with hate, because I believe in freedom of speech and freedom of thought.  If people like Omar wish to express their vile and unremitting hatred of the Jewish people and the State of Israel, that’s fine, but don’t dare to tell me how the Democrat Party is a party of tolerance as they increasingly incorporate virulently anti-semitic people into their party.  People like Keith Ellison(D-MN), and Ilhan Omar(D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib(D-MI) among lesser lights are the new version of Democrat hatred, replacing their old-timey haters like Senator Byrd(D-WV,) known for his 51 years in the US Senate and his membership in the KKK. Of course, big-time politicians who were KKK members were also almost universally Democrats.  It appears that their party always needs somebody to hate.  Today, it’s the long-suffering Jewish people.  We must continue to press the Democrats to reconcile their alleged “party of inclusion” while they continue to adopt disgusting anti-semites and other racists into their midst.  In the Republican Party, the party ejects such people.  Ask Steve King.  Meanwhile, in the House, the Democrats are making plain that they are the party of hate.
