Friday, August 27th, 2021

John Bennett, First Sergeant, USMC, Retired

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

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

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

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

President Trump speaks to America

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

Trump Rally in Alabama Draws Massive Crowd(Videos)

Sunday, August 22nd, 2021

Will the left stop him again?

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


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


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


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

Here’s the entire Trump Speech:


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

Shocking Report About Vaccine Injuries and Deaths Being Spiked

Saturday, August 21st, 2021

What the media isn’t telling you…

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

American-Born Doctor Describes Danger of Vaccines

Killing Your Children

Sunday, August 15th, 2021

The Heart of the Matter

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

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

 

Dr. Robert Malone Unmasks the Vaccine(Updated)

Saturday, July 31st, 2021

Sometimes, the truth hurts.

The one place in media giving one-hundred percent unvarnished coverage of issues with the vaccines is Stephen K Bannon’s Warroom. They’re not “anti-vax,” but they pull no punches, and they don’t cover up the problems.  They seem to believe in informed consent, a notion foreign to big media, big tech, and big government. The inventor of mRNA vaccine technology is a man named Dr. Robert Malone, MD.  He’s examining the actual evidence of the performance of the vaccines so far, and he’s seeing some very troubling problems.  These problems are being brushed-aside by mass media, and it’s astonishing that they continue with the “conspiracy theory” attack, despite so-called “conspiracy theories” now proving out in case after case in the last year.  First, we were told that the idea that vaccinated people could spread COVID is a “conspiracy theory.” Then we were told that the idea that there were injuries or death associated with the vaccines were a “conspiracy theory.” What we’re learning at this late date is that people who label everything “conspiracy theory” are the singularly demonstrable, undeniable conspiracy theorists.  We’re being told lies.  Thankfully, Dr. Robert Malone is having none of it. Here we have another physician who is bravely standing up against the tide of liars and cowards.  You must listen to what he has to say.  Whether you’ve been vaccinated or not, you have a right to the truth about all of this. You have a right to know if you’ve been dosed with something potentially dangerous.  You have a right to know what they’re demanding you have injected into your body. You retain a right to refuse, in all cases, and you have a right to continue your life without coercion or compulsion.  Most of all, you need the information.  You may be afraid of the information, either because you’ve had the vaccine and fear what it could mean for you, or because you haven’t, and you’re frightened that you’ll need to defend your life against the mandaters. Either way, you need information.  You’re not getting honest information from the media or government. Big tech is hiding it from you. If you have children, or others for whom you make the custodial decisions about vaccines, you need the information more than anybody.  Sometimes, the truth hurts.  Often, a lack of truth can kill.  Please view these clips from the War Room:

FULL EPISODE:


Editor’s Note: I’ve deemed this information too important to wait. I will update this post with more clips and ultimately, the full episode when it becomes available. Given the nature of the information, I decided that waiting for each segment of the show to become available would inhibit the spread of the information already available.

MAGA 2021: Choosing the Road Ahead

Thursday, January 21st, 2021

Victory is the only choice

There is a time for choosing, and I’m going to lay it all out. The Republican party has done, as my friend and long time commenter “The Unit” asserts: Hit the eject button, rather than squeeze the trigger. This is why we nominated Trump to begin with: Spineless, ineffective, weaselly Republicans who would rather assume the position and take it rather than fight. Ladies and gentlemen, that’s what we have in our Republican Party, and like so many of you, I am inclined to simply wash my hands of them and let the Republican Party burn. It would be so satisfying. It would be wonderful to spit in their eyes and walk the Hell away. Who among us would not love to give Mitch McConnell the old double-barreled middle finger and tell him to shove off? While that would all be very satisfying, the satisfaction wouldn’t last as we will see the disaster these people will make of our country. That’s unacceptable, and while a third party is very enticing, there are problems with that approach. Let’s think very carefully about what we do next, make our decisions in the full knowledge of the costs, and then go do it. Talk is cheap, but the time for action has come. Let us choose our course knowing what offers any hope of success, and what is doomed to failure or worse. It’s our country, and it’s our party, so let us decide its disposition.  The 2022 primaries begin today.

The first option is the easiest of all: We can do nothing, but simply walk away in frustration and despair. That is the road to serfdom of a sort for which fools like AOC and Ilhan Omar only dare to dream. That road is littered with the wreckage of our lives, and the lives of our children and grandchildren. It will end with our country in squalor and destitute slavery to the Chinese Communist Party and their “elite” pet American politicians.  I find that to be a grotesquely unacceptable course. I will not be driven from politics. I will not be driven from the public square. I will not let these psychopathic lunatics turn my country into grist for their communist mill of death. I will not become another conforming slave, unwilling to state my opinions and principles to the knowing of the world. I can’t do that. I won’t do that. Neither should you.

The second option is to cast off the Republican Party, abandoning it to the losers and RINOs and NeverTrumpers. The idea would be to start a new party, a patriot party, a MAGA party, or some such thing that we could decide. That sounds great, but it’s been tried, and it never works. Why not? The answer is simple, and most of you already know it: The system is thoroughly rigged to make sure a third party will fail. First, the laws are established to favor the existing two parties. At the local, state, and federal levels, obstacles are placed in the way of new parties and non-party independent candidates that make it very difficult, in some cases virtually impossible, to circumvent the existing two-party oligopoly. While I would love to see that changed, the truth is that it will never be changed from outside the two-party system. They have it all stitched-up quite tightly, and they know it. That’s why they don’t mind when we get angry and go off in search of a third party. They know we can’t get around them in any significant way. Ross Perot discovered this with his ill-fated Reform Party. This is why Trump ran as a Republican, and not as a third-party candidate. His successes should be our guide, but so should his failures, and there were several. Dan Bongino did a great job explaining this in his reference to the ill-fated but much-recalled Bull Moose Party of Teddy Roosevelt. Here it is, from Rumble(Fast-forward to the 57:00 mark to get to the point directly):

The third option is perhaps the most difficult, but it’s also the only plausible way to accomplish what we actually want. It will require something to which many of us are not accustomed, and I am going to tell you the truth about it whether or not you wish to know it. The most probable method to achieve our desire is to create a new party within the Republican Party, but in a way that permits us to take over the machinery of the party from top to bottom. This is going to be difficult, butd if you actually want to do it, we’re going to have to get off our asses and do more than go to rallies. It’s going to require that we do what the Tea Party did, times ten. We’re going to need to start at the bottom, develop candidates, and take control of the party from the bottom, moving upward. What Trump did was a decapitation attack on the party, and it worked, but the problem is that he didn’t build the organization he needed to take it over from the bottom up. Getting people to rallies is great, because it get voters to polls, but that doesn’t give you control of the party at the local and state levels, which is where elections are won and lost.

Let me explain: Why did Trump lose* in 2020? They stole it. How did they steal it? Well, they used all the ordinary methods, but they got away with it. How did they get away with it? In the seven to ten locations most critical to their steal, they took control of the election law and machinery. They exploited weak, weaselly Republicans, like the Speaker of the House in Pennsylvania, the Governors and Secretaries of State in Arizona and Georgia, and a whole string of weak-kneed Republicans in the affected states. They also owned the States’ courts, either with outright leftists, or with a combination of leftists and  RINO Republicans. The biggest key to this election theft was not just pallets of ballots, and suitcases of ballots, but the legal chicanery that permitted them to occur. The mail-in fraud was the biggest part of their theft, using the lack of signature verification, the curing of ballots, and all the rest of the rigged laws and dicta. This permitted them to simply rubber-stamp fraudulent ballots in a massive way. Having a few well-placed dirtbags in Republican drag was indispensable. Mitch McConnell assisted the steal, as did any number of other establishment Republicans. They wanted Trump gone. Without loyal Trumpists at the local-level and state-level providing a safeguard of the law, there was no backstop. Yes, he got more legitimate votes than Joe Biden, but as you know too well by now, the issue comes down to Stalin’s line about who counts the vote rather than who casts them. In this case, however, it came down to the more fundamental question about under which conditions ballots could be cast and subsequently counted and validated. Yes, of course they stole this election, and it’s as plain as the nose on your face, but left without the ability to prove it, the audit trail having been effectively(or in some cases literally) erased, there is no remaining way to prove it in a timeframe that won’t make the argument all but moot. It was almost the perfect crime, inasmuch as while it might be able to be proven in some substantial instances at this late date, do you think there’s any way to reverse the election after the new President is inaugurated?

The only way this is ever fixed, if ever, is to seize control of one of the parties and reform it from the bottom up. Part of me, the vengeful part, wants almost to go after the Democrat Party, take it over, and wreck it, and turn it into our party. Can you imagine a Democrat party in which AOC is an outcast? Can you imagine a Democrat Party in which the likes of Chuck Schumer is a marginalized nutjob who can’t win a primary? Wouldn’t that be glorious? Okay, enough of the fantasy. Time to get back to work. Let’s start this way, if you’re serious. I want you to find out who runs the Republican Party in your county. I want you to find out who is on their committees. I want you to show up at the next meeting. Sit quietly and watch what goes on. Learn how they operate. Get together with others. Wear some item of significance to show others of like mind who you are. Become insurgents at the local level, and take over the local party. To do this is not easy, but it’s also not impossible. Once you do this, begin cultivating local candidates, and start working toward putting forward State Representatives and Senators. Take over city councils and school boards. Take over the State Party. Take over the legislature. Rid yourselves of RINO governors. While you’re at it, work to reform laws so that third parties can get a start, so that if your progeny ever find themselves in a similar situation, they have a path to a viable third party. I want you to notice that in just four years, the Tea Party was able to field candidates and drive the agenda of the Republican Party. The problem is that they permitted themselves to be isolated and ultimately marginalized. If you tackle this, in order to avoid that kind of separation, you’ll need to avoid the labels the establishment folk and media will try to assign you. You need to insist, since it’s true, that you represent the mainstream of the Republican Party. In fact, that ought to be your label, if you take one at all: We are the mainstream Republicans. Full stop. It’s our party, and we own it, fund it, and supply the vast majority of the votes for its candidates. It’s time for us to run it.

The problem we face is that the existing two parties are thoroughly corrupt. They’ve formed a sort of oligopoly in which you can do business with one, or the other, but you must pick one or suffer the consequences. While you’re working to wrest control of local and state party organs, keep an eye on the Federal stooges. They’ll be up to no good, looking to consort with the left any chance they get. Why? Because that’s how they maintain their power in DC. That’s how they get along. That’s how they keep getting re-elected. We need to purge these RINOs from the party. We need to impel these people to fight to the degree we can, because we’re in for one Hell of a couple of terms. We’re going to need to start now. The primaries will already be going for Congressional and State elections this time next year. We need to be thinking now about the primaries in 2021. This is a good first opportunity to test our mettle.  You can walk away in dejection and despair, or you can stand to fight.  If you stand to fight, you must decide whether you will vest your efforts in an almost hopelessly implausible effort to create a third political party, or whether you will simply take over the machinery that already exists. I’ve given this a great deal of thought, and although part of me screams that we’ve been here before, and it’s hard, the truth is that forming another party and making it electorally viable on the Presidential stage is not something likely to be achieved in my lifetime.  I have always voted Republican, and I’ve always funded its causes and candidates. That makes me an owner in this enterprise, and I fully intend to exercise my rightful control. I fervently hope you will join me. It’s time for you non-party independents to join in too. The truth is that you voted with us for the same reasons, and that means you tend to share our values. It’s time now to stand for them, before we lose it all.

MAGA!

 

Lindsey Graham Gets the Just Recognition He Deserves (Video)

One More DC Dirt-Bag

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Flashback: Ayanna Pressley Calling for Unrest in August

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

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

The Present Death of the Republican Party

Thursday, January 7th, 2021

The Dagger of Brutus Comes Out

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We Must Remove Them All

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

Do We Deserve the Country They Built?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Monday, August 12th, 2019

Ordinary Suicide?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

President Trump hosted a rousing Independence Day celebration on the Mall in Washington DC on Thursday, the 4th of July 2019.  Complete with the Army Band, and Choir, this was an awesome display of our reverence for our National heritage and our pride in all that has gone into making this the greatest nation in the history of our world.

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.

Judge Jeanine Silenced By FoxNews(Updated 2x)

Monday, March 18th, 2019

Justice Finished at Fox News

Those of you who’ve been reading this blog for years will know that I’ve never been a big fan of Jeanine Pirro.  At times, I think her positions are not really so conservative, but that’s okay, because we’re all entitled to our own opinions.  If she annoyed me, I’d just change the channel, as I do with anybody else in media.  It’s called “choice,” but for some reason, leftists only enjoy non-choices disguised as choice(infanticide, for instance.)  In this case, what’s been revealed is the degree to which Fox News is becoming more and more like the other Ameriphobic news outlets.  The writing has been on the wall for several years, but viewers had reason to hope. Last Saturday, the 9th of March, on her Fox News weekly show Justice, Pirro asked about Ilhan Omar:

“Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Here’s a clip from a Youtuber that contains the controversial clip from “Justice with Jeanine:”

Notice that the quote cited above is the quote widely cited in media, but having watched the video, in context, this question doesn’t seem extraordinary or out of place.  Given Omar’s spate of ridiculous anti-Semitic remarks in recent weeks, Pirro’s question doesn’t seem out of line.

Fox News, now apparently an Ameriphobic network like most of the rest, decided to pull the plug on Pirro’s popular Saturday evening show, bowing to pressure from Islamophiles everywhere, including in corporate management.

Apparently the opinions and sensibilities of at Fox News are those of James Murdoch, Rupert Murdoch’s Ameriphobic son, who is running the network. After her question about Omar, Pirro refused to apologize, and as of this Saturday evening, she wasn’t on the air.  Justice is out at Fox News.

Annoyed, President Trump even retweeted somebody else’s complaint about it:


Of course, this was after he had tweeted extensively on the issue, seeming to demand that FoxNews buck up and defend its hosts, including Judge Jeanine. Earlier, he had tweeted this three-part tweet-storm(part 1:)

 

(part 2:)

 

(part 3:)

 


Like President Trump, I have tired of Fox News’ endless besmirching of patriotism and Americanism, particularly when it comes to their weekend lineup. I’m also tired of their incessant sucking-up to Islam. Pamela Geller was apparently banned from the network some time ago, and Geller was an unabashed critic of Islam. Her contention has been that there’s no real difference between radical Islam and Islam.  After Fox News stopped putting Pamela Geller on the network, I knew the network was headed down the path of surrender fast.

As of Sunday, it seems that Jeanine Pirro may be out entirely at FoxNews.

What’s most sickening is that after Fox News criticized Pirro, Ilhan Omar thanked the network.

As I’ve previously reported on this blog, Fox News is going to Hell.  The few conservatives on the network won’t be able to save it from its idiotic management by #Ameriphobes like James Murdoch and his gaggle of clucking Islamophiles.  I think I’m going to switch to One America News Network. I’ve been a Dish Network customer for years, but it looks like DirectTV offers OANN, so I may be headed that direction, unless ROKU offers it.  Besides, from what I’ve seen, OANN’s reporting is decidedly not Ameriphobic.  It’s time to turn the channel on Fox News. As a whole, the network has become hostile to my sensitivities, and this silencing of pro-America(n), anti-Jihadi voices must be stopped.  Now Fox News coddles an anti-Semite like Omar, while they toss overboard a host who, despite my disagreements on many issues, is an undeniable patriot.

I hate the media Nazis who seem to have need to silence voices they don’t like.

Screw Fox News.

Update: Now we learn that Fox News has rehired the disgraced Donna Brazile, who helped rig debates by providing Hillary the debate questions.

Update 2: H/T Mr. L for pointing me to this accurate and excellent article at AmericanThinker.

Napolitano Wrong, As Usual

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

As usual, the open-borders, chamber-of-commerce media, including FoxNews rushed out to tell you what you need to know.  As usual, they intentionally mislead you about the nature of the law. While I’ve already covered this issue, demonstrating plainly that President Trump has the authority, the media is great at lying and propagandizing, and sadly, that includes FoxNews on immigration-related issues.  Everything is squeezed through the filters they want you to see.  Let’s take a look at what FoxNews “Judicial Analyst” Andrew Napolitano has to say, and let’s see about the facts.  First, the video:

Now let’s analyze Napolitano’s claims and assertions about the law, which I’ve here paraphrased and condensed for further examination:

  • Presidents can’t seize property under emergency declarations.
  • Presidents can’t spend money without congressional authorization in an emergency.
  • The President must “make a case” for a declared emergency.
  • If the President had authority to spend money under emergencies, we’d have seen it before, but we haven’t.
  • Sometimes Congress has “looked the other way” when Presidents reallocate defense money from one use to another, but it doesn’t make it lawful.

First, as a general observation, let it be acknowledged that in certain respect, Andrew Napolitano is a radical libertarian on immigration generally, which is a strong reason for FoxNews to have picked somebody else to provide “Judicial Analysis.”  Naturally, FoxNews is itself a corporation that favor open borders, so it’s easy enough to understand their motives in picking open border hacks like Napolitano to make this particular case.

The first assertion of Napolitano was that the President cannot seize property under emergency declarations.

Let us go right to a pretty open-and-shut case: Roosevelt ordered the surrender of privately owned gold and gold certificates to the Federal Reserve on 5 April, 1933.  This was done under executive order 6102, with authority arising from the Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917, as amended. Gold is private property. Roosevelt was acting pursuant to an emergency he declared. Not convinced? Let’s go on to a second example, shall we?  In 1944, Roosevelt ordered the plants, offices, and warehouses of Montgomery Ward to be seized in order to force compliance with an emergency-based order of collective bargaining with a labor union, due to the ongoing war, which was the basis of the emergency. (World War II.)

Let’s just stop right there on Napolitano’s first point.  He’s busted.  Thoroughly.  There are hundreds more examples where Presidents made seizures of private property in time of war or emergency.  It’s called the “rule of necessity,” and it is the legal basis for all emergency doctrine.  Like most libertarians, I find such authority despicable, but they exist, have been exercised, and precedents must be recognized, as all the “wise judicial analysts” like to insist.

The Law: 1  Andrew Napolitano: 0

His next assertion was that Presidents can’t spend money without authorization by Congress in an emergency.  Let’s ask a Democrat Congressman:


Imagine that!  In addition to this, however, there are at least three known instances of Presidents’ spending without any prior Congressional appropriations:

  • Washington’s Unilateral spending to suppress the 1794 Whiskey Rebellion
  • Jefferson’s purchases of saltpepper and sulphur after the Chesapeake incident
  • Lincoln’s advance of $2 million to purchase supplies in advance of the Civil War in 1861

(See pages 22-23 of the following PDF from Harvard Law:  Constitutionality of Executive Spending)

These are older examples, but if it was good enough for Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln, it’s probably good enough for President Trump.

The Law: 2  Andrew Napolitano: 0

His next assertion was that Presidents must “make a case” to declare emergencies.  This implies that a President must go find approval.  That’s not the case. In point of fact, all a president must do is issue an emergency declaration, and point to his legal authority, and then act.  This has been done repeatedly.

The Law: 3  Andrew Napolitano: 0

His next assertion has already been covered: He claimed that if the President had such authority, we’d have seen it used before, but we haven’t.  See Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln above.

The Law: 4  Andrew Napolitano: 0

His last general assertion is that Congress may have “looked the other way” when it suited them, but that it isn’t lawful.

The problem with this notion is that legal precedents are born of such practices.  If Congress historically “looks the other way,” time after time, permitting the President to do such things without challenging them, it can also be interpreted as an endorsement of that action, or at least an affirmation of its legitimacy. In short, the court could very well view it as a precedent that bears upon their decisions thereafter.  “Looking the other way” once or twice might be tantamount to surrendering the issue in perpetuity.

The Law: 5 Andrew Napolitano: 0

Of course, there was at least one more assertion that had been made by Brian Kilmeade in the video clip above.  He mentioned that one couldn’t rightly term this an “emergency” because it would take too long.

This is a bizarre point.  The United States has been operating under all sorts of emergency statutes for DECADES, some of them continuously since the days of Jimmy Carter, and even earlier.  Read this fascinating article.

Imagine that, and yes, score Mr. Kilmeade a big fat zero.

It’s time for the left and the pro-amnesty, open-borders media and political culture to shut the Hell up and get out of President Trump’s way.  If he declares an emergency, he’ll have every bit of law and precedence on his side.

GOP Says “FU”

Friday, March 18th, 2016

its-our-party-we-can-do-do-what-we-want_ftThe GOP establishment isn’t going quietly. In fact, they’re building their booby trap for those who would oust them from dominance in the upcoming elections, and those who have to date deprived them of viable candidates in the Republican primary season.  I have here stated that I’m not a big fan of Donald Trump, and that I have serious misgivings about all of the Republican candidates.  What you should know is that as much as I may not like Donald Trump’s behavior and antics, I vastly prefer him to the crooked DC UniParty that includes both Democrat and Republican establishments.  What we’ve learned today is that in order to interrupt the natural, normal primary process as the GOP establishment had already rigged it, they will use the continuing candidacy of a mail carrier’s son to foist on the party a nominee like Paul Ryan, or another establishment Republican, through the contested convention process, should neither Trump nor Cruz obtain the necessary 1,237 delegates.  If that doesn’t disgust you quite enough, and it isn’t clear enough to you how, as a voter for any candidate in the GOP primary, you’re being screwed, there’s this bit of news:  Orin Hatch(R-UT) is already aboard with the Obama nomination of  leftist radical Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court of the United States.   Perpetual sell-outs Jeff Flake, Kelly Ayotte, and Susan Collins have already expressed interest in meeting with Garland.  You need to understand how you’re being betrayed by the GOP establishment.

This is their parting gift.  If they can’t win in the regular primary process, they’re going to make your votes meaningless.  If that still doesn’t permit them to maintain power, and if they’re unable to stop Trump directly, they will support Hillary.  Assuming somehow that doesn’t materialize, and Trump has such a groundswell of support in the Fall that they’re unable to sufficiently damage him in order to elect Hillary, they are setting up their parting gift: If they believe they’re about to be ousted anyway, they are going to shove a leftist Supreme Court justice down our throats to wreck the country for decades, if not forever.  One way or another, they’re going to have their revenge, like the petulant children of Bill Clinton’s administration who stole all the “W” keys from keyboards throughout the executive departments of our government, the difference being that this will be substantially more damaging, and it will be done with far more malice.  Speaking of malice for Republican voters, watch the following video (H/T Sundance @ the ConservativeTreehouse), and listen closely just beyond the three minute mark:

That’s right, it’s THEIR party, and they’ll nominate who they damned well please.  For those who don’t quite understand this, let me explain it this way: Delegates select the nominee. Voters participate in a process by which delegates are selected, but this is where the voter’s legal say in the process ends. As a practical matter, it is true that the party selects the nominee through its delegates.  If no candidate obtains 1,237 delegates(one more than half) then the delegates who are required to support the candidate to whom they were originally allocated in the first vote become unbound in any successive votes, meaning they can cross over and vote for another candidate.  This is essentially a “contested convention” by party rules, and at present, unless something shifts wildly, it’s going to be very difficult for any of the candidates to get to the 1,237 delegates required.  What Curly Haugland is explaining in this video is that which we already know: It’s THEIR party.  They make the rules, and they determine the process, which means that they alone really possess the ability to select the party’s nominee.  They can make changes to the rules almost at will.

Haugland isn’t lying. Haugland is simply stating the facts. What voters must now realize is what many people have been explaining for decades, but that nobody seems willing to acknowledge: The whole primary process is a farce.  In the Democrat party, it is dominated by “Super Delegates” who basically are able to obviate the will of the voters at their whim.  Witness how Bernie Sanders can win the popular vote in a given state, but always loses in the delegate count. In the 1970s, the Democrats created the “Super Delegates” in the wake of George McGovern’s candidacy, because they never wanted such an apparent leftist to be the nominee of their party again. It’s the Democrat establishment’s version of “Screw-the-vote,” and it’s in clear evidence in 2016 in the race between Clinton and Sanders.

On the Republican side, a different methodology is used to obtain the same kind of result.  A myriad of candidates are inserted into the campaign to split and shape the results.  As they lose their utility in shaping the race, they’re withdrawn from the process.  This is why John Kasich remains in this race today, because he’s going to effectively siphon-off just enough delegates to make sure neither of the other two can obtain 1,237 delegates.  This will put the GOP establishment in the position of being able to negotiate with the candidates at the convention, probably even throughout the period between the last primary in early June, and the convention’s start in July.  By then, the delegate counts will be firmly known, and the deal-making will begin in earnest.  We will eventually discover who had been the better deal-maker, or if a deal had been reached at all, once the voting begins at the convention.  I would not be surprised to see a Trump-Kasich ticket emerge, with Kasich being the establishment’s lever in the supposed presidency of Donald Trump.

Whatever the case, you can bet that the GOP establishment will use a “contested convention” to set their hooks deeply into Donald Trump’s backside if he is to become the nominee.  The same is true if they were to instead broker a deal with Ted Cruz.  The basic idea here is that they will obtain certain policy concessions for the DC UniParty that will undermine whomever they ultimately decide to support in this process.  You can bet that this is where some form of “amnesty” will sneak in over the threshold, and you can expect to be thoroughly betrayed on this issue.  Whether it’s some sort of “touch-back amnesty” as Trump has previously suggested, or a “legalize-in-place-without-path-to-citizenship” as Cruz has previously advocated, you can bet the hooks will be set firmly.

The party establishments are firmly in control of their parties, and I detest the misleading comments of those who will tell you now that the “GOP establishment is dead.”  Nothing could be further from the truth, and they will never yield power in their party.  At best, they’re in hiding.  Should voters become so incensed at the process that they decide to form a new party, abandoning the GOP altogether, the GOP establishment will simply switch and work to co-opt the new party.  There is a vast political class of consultants, analysts, propagandists, public-relations pushers, and pollsters who cannot live without this process.  They’d be out of a job.  They are the folks most threatened by the two remaining Republican candidates, because either is likely to wipe out a good deal of this nonsense if they are able to obtain the nomination and win the presidency.

The Republican Party’s establishment is able to say “FU” to the voters and make it stick, certainly for now, and probably for as long as the Republican Party remains in existence. They control far too much of the process to ever be truly defeated on their own home turf.  Even Ronald Reagan discovered this as he found through the course of his presidency that he was being consistently opposed and undermined not just by Democrats like Ted Kennedy, but also from within his own administration through the establishment cronies tied to his Vice President.  If either Trump or Cruz manages to make a deal to get the nomination at a “contested convention,” you should know that exactly the same sort of thing will be in the offing, because the establishment isn’t giving up their power without a serious knock-down, drag-out fight.  We should be realistic about the betrayals that will attend any deal-making, and it’s why we must never forget that when they assert that it’s THEIR party, they aren’t lying.  It’s just that in most cases, they’re just as soon not point it out.  We should be prepared to exert our influence, to the degree we have any, with the candidate who they ultimately nominate, because the deal-making of the DC establishment is never in our favor. Never.

The New Communists at FoxNews

Sunday, December 6th, 2015

cargile_fnc_smSaturday afternoon, I took a little bit of time to watch some news. I flipped over to FoxNews, and there I witnessed Mickey Cargile explaining to openly supportive host Eric Shawn and his audience that drug prices are a moral issue, and a quality of life issue, more than economic issue. I couldn’t agree more.  His conclusion, however, was based on the moral system of collectivism. I realize that the anchors and stories on FoxNews on weekends tend to be the “B-Team” or even the “C-Team,” but this is despicable. Watch for yourself:

Apparently, Cargile believes this is a moral issue, but unfortunately, his moral standard is collectivism. He ignores entirely the morality of a civilized country inasmuch as he openly attacks private property rights, private wealth, and the freedom to choose. Reading between the lines, he’s advocating some sort of government-enforced price control at the very least, and perhaps even complete expropriation at the worst. This implies violence. In order to enforce such a thing, what one is saying is that one is ready to kill people in order to take their things if they do not otherwise consent.

The host, for his part, is no better. He smears the owners of the rights to the Hepatitis C treatment under discussion as people who are merely out to profit, first, as if profit is somehow an evil, and second in that they might use that profit to “buy a new Ferrari.” This shameful broadcast merely confirms my contention that FoxNews is all about co-opting conservatism. There’s nothing remotely conservative in this, Cargile’s protests about his continuing devotion to the free market notwithstanding.

For those who don’t understand the principles involved, let us be clear: If you invent a thing, and I purchase the rights to that thing from you, my moral claim to the thing in question is every bit as legitimate as yours when you had invented the thing. More, since it’s now my thing, I have the absolute right to buy it and sell it as I see fit, and the only moral method by which to obtain it is to pay the price at which we arrive by mutual consent. Any government interference in that exchange, either to my benefit or to a purchaser’s, is tyranny.

What Cargile advocates in this clip is tyranny. What the hapless Mr. Shawn approvingly supports is no different from what Hugo Chavez had imposed in that poor, enslaved, collapsing communist state that is Venezuela: Communism. The closer we get to complete collapse, and the more people begin to shrug their shoulders over the concepts and moral standing of individual rights, the more rapidly our collapse will accelerate.

One might argue, as the communists at FoxNews seem to insist, that there is some maximum amount that ought to be charged for some life-saving, or quality-of-life-preserving drug or treatment. My question for you is: Had I Hepatitis C, how much of my earnings would I forego for how long a period to finance a cure? Is there any amount of money I would not pay? One might argue, as the dolts on FoxNews have done here, that such a burden is unaffordable, and use this as a justification to steal. Theft via government action is still theft, even though done under color of law. The fact that the government was placed in office by vote does not reduce the significance of the crime, but merely multiplies the number of criminals and broadens the expanse of the guilt(though its concentration is not diluted.)

With this sort of thing becoming the norm on FoxNews, as further evidence of the spread of collectivist ethics throughout the culture, we cannot and will not last.

Veterans March on DC – Palin, Cruz, Lee Run Interference

Monday, October 14th, 2013

In Washington DC on Sunday, an unknown number of veterans(we’ll never get an honest estimate out of DC officials) together with Governor Sarah Palin, Senators Ted Cruz(R-TX) and Mike Lee(R-UT) gathered to visit the World War II memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, and later, the vets marched to the White House and the Capitol, depositing and discarding a pile of “Barry-cades” at the White House.  According to a report on Shark-tank.net, Palin and her contingent were greeted by riot police who were there to attempt to shut down the event.  Gov. Palin reportedly thanked the officers for their service before joining in the barricade removal and continuation of the event.  Senators Cruz and Lee joined her in making remarks to open the event. Here’s video posted on youtube:

A clip repeating a small segment of Sarah Palin’s remarks with Senator Cruz’s remarks:

A clip of Greta Van Susternen talking with Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee at the event:

Not surprisingly, this group of leaders show up for the important things.  Other so-called leaders were nowhere to be seen.  Certainly, President Obama wasn’t around, and Marine 1 was seen leaving the White House during the extended event that included veterans carrying and depositing sections of “Barry-cades” at the White House, notably, one double-amputee on a Segway who loaded a section of the barricade and carted it with him.

These are the men and women our President and Harry Reid choose to dismiss.  These are the people who are “radicals,” “extremists,” and “zealots” in the estimation of the Washington DC elitists.  The simple truth is that men and women who have given their service honorably and often at great(or ultimate) personal cost to this country should never be barricaded from memorials.  Never in any previous shutdown have these memorials been barricaded, and the truth is that it costs more money to barricade them than to have left them open.  This spectacle was brought to you by none other than Barack Obama, along with his cronies and henchmen, all attempting to bring unnecessary pain to the American people.

Naturally, it wasn’t over there.  Vets carried barricade section up to the White House, and riot police soon filled the area, along with mounted police.  There were alleged to have been a few minor scuffles, with protesters chanting everything from “Obama must go” to “Shame on you.” Here’s a video clip:

As police v. protester “clashes” go, this one was pretty mild, thankfully, and you could hear in this and similar video clips the veterans urging one another to remain “cool” and to otherwise prevent the situation from getting out of hand.  These are America’s vets, mobilized, honorable, and patriotic.  Meanwhile, the DC elite bring out the riot police to try to close down an event that should never have been necessary but for the President’s insistence on closing down memorials that have never been closed before.

I would like to thank all my honorable brothers and sisters, young and old, who showed up for this event.  I also think we owe significant thanks to Governor Palin, along with Senators Cruz and Lee, for running interference and making it more difficult for the riot police to attempt to sweep this up and bury it.  The media did its level best to either ignore or mock the event.  The truth is that American veterans and patriots rallied on Sunday in defense of our liberties and against a tyrant, and whether the mainstream media covered it or not, you should know of their efforts. This must be the beginning of taking our country back.

 

Sarah Palin’s Obama Smackdown No Pin-Prick

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Monday evening, on Sean Hannity’s show, Governor Sarah Palin took on the issue of the government shutdown, explained that the partial shutdown of the government is a necessary result of our broken budgetary process, but that it’s certainly no Armageddon.  She had a special aside just for Barack Obama(video courtesy SarahNet):
