I Stand With Bannon (Post with Video)

Friday, July 22nd, 2022

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

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

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

Levin Nearly Stumbles Into Truth About Ukraine

Saturday, March 5th, 2022

Levin lays out the initial case on March 5th 2017 for Spygate

Only one day after I reflected on Mark Levin’s amazing ability to sift through piles of mainstream media reports to assemble the hidden truth, he very nearly did it again on Friday evening’s broadcast.  He still hasn’t clarified for his audience that the claims of cluster-bombs and thermobaric bombs are unverified, unconfirmed reports, much to my chagrin, but in discussing the goings-on in Washington DC he swerved ever so close to the truth, again.  I keep hoping he’ll step back from the Ukraine story just a little farther, just enough to clear his senses and conquer his emotions.  If he does, he’s a man with the resources and skills to finally sort out the truth of this mess.  At this point, Levin should begin asking himself that question that any good lawyer must do when trying to formulate a theory of a case: What’s the motive driving the behavior of the Biden administration in Ukraine?  I believe Levin is so close to the truth that if he sets aside his emotions about Ukraine for a few moments, and sinks his teeth into all of this, it’s game over.  He’ll sniff it out, and he’ll realize that what’s happening in Ukraine isn’t purely about Ukraine or Putin at all.  That’s the side-show.  That’s the pay-off.  That’s the clean-up on aisle twelve.  He came very near to the central issue, and I hope he soon realizes it.  I believe he could very well blow the lid off of Washington DC for a generation or more. Today, at the last possible moment before the “Eureka!” that should have come, he swerved off down another emotionally-driven side issue.  He’s so maddeningly close that I almost wish he’d happen by this website.  It’s time for Mark Levin to return to his lists of facts and his prosecutorial style.

As a reminder, if you haven’t see it before, or simply need the refresher, this is what it’s like when Levin gets on one of his epic tears, here laying out the case that the Obama administration spied on Trump from Fox and Friends on March 5th, 2017, five years ago today:

The questions you must ask require that you first recognize that the Ukraine catastrophe is not an isolated event, separate and apart from all other events. I urge Mark Levin and anybody else digging into this to consider that we see all the same players involved in all of these matters, from Ukraine during the Obama administration, to the Russia Hoax of the Trump campaign, to SpyGate that extended into the Trump administration, the “Mueller Probe,” the first impeachment, the January 6th event, the second impeachment, and the election theft of 2020.  What’s conspicuous by its absence from this list, that we ought not to omit?  Once we add it to the list, the smoke begins to clear, and it all begins to make more sense:  The Iran Nuclear Deal.  Remember that the Iran Nuclear Deal was only made possible by a sell-out Republican Senator from Tennessee, Bob Corker(RINO,) who concocted a bill that allowed the Senate to bypass the treaty clause of the constitution, ignoring the necessity for a two-thirds vote for its ratification. Combine it all with the situation in Ukraine, and the behaviors of the Biden administration, and it all makes so much more sense.

I won’t tell you that I have all the details, but instead, I’m going to paint a broad-strokes picture.  It would take somebody like a Levin to assemble a clearer picture, and indeed, today, Mark Levin provided another piece of the puzzle.  He is so, so very close, and I believe if he returns to his dispassionate review of facts, and digs into this a bit harder, he’s going to put it together.  I can almost hear the beginnings of the percolating of connections as he covers some of the facts.  What Levin revealed is that the Biden administration is permitting the Russians to negotiate with Iran on behalf of the United States for the new nuclear deal.  Remember the pallets of cash?  There’s going to be much more. Much, much more.  Biden has made concessions to the Russians, which is why this administration won’t do anything about Ukraine.  It’s part of the deal.  This is the part Mark Levin isn’t quite guessing yet, at least not clearly.  Levin made mention of Ted Cruz’s National Security advisor, Victoria Coates.  I hope he posts a link to the paper or article from which he’s drawing this information. (Update: One of my sharpest followers on Twitter found the story here. Thanks @ginthegin! If you don’t already, give her a follow!)

There is more that stinks in Ukraine than just the money-laundering of the Obama-Clinton-Biden gang. I told you nearly one week ago that based on reports of Biden providing security intelligence to the Russians via China, that I believed this was being done purposefully because Putin is going to carry out the cleanup in Ukraine, in exchange for the ability to have his way with that beleaguered, historically corrupt former Soviet satellite.  This is the reason for the ineffective and purposefully ineffectual sanctions against Russia.  In the end, I expect the Russians to control at least the Eastern half of Ukraine, if not the whole.  This is being done with a wink and nod from the Biden administration.  Why?

What would make people of this supposed stature so desperate that they would give up their money-laundry in Ukraine?  What would make people like this yield and let the RUSSIANS(!!!!!!) carry out negotiations on behalf of the United States with Iran?  What would make them do so? Talk about “COLLUSION!”

This is speculation, but Russia would be free to discuss anything they liked with the Iranians, even things quite damaging to the Americans involved, without any worry that it would ever be disclosed.  There’s no FOIA to worry about in Russia.  There’s nothing they couldn’t hide within these negotiations. As long as the final product is something they can shove through the Congress in the next few months, the sausage-making aspects of the agreement will remain forever opaque.  The American people will never know, but Putin will have a permanent lever to use against these people. That lever will be whatever the Iranians already have, or at least knowledge of it.  I don’t know what the Iranians have on the American Political Mafia, but it’s big.  One rumor several years ago, a rumor I could not confirm, was that they had Osama bin Laden. Alive. It sounds just as fantastic now as it did then, but there was always something about the story that rang true.  Of course, an extraordinary story of that sort would require equally extraordinary evidence, so I won’t posit this as the actual dirt, but if you use it as a proxy for the kind of dirt they must have, it would require something of that magnitude to explain the behavior we’ve witnessed.

The problem is that Putin was always going to demand “cash on the barrel-head” from these people. There will be no IOUs with Putin from this gang of American political mobsters.  He needed payment up front, which meant: No sanctions of lasting consequence; any sanctions must be a functional fan-dances, but also, no interference in or substantial aid(particularly lethal) to Ukraine.  Putin is going to clean up the evidence for these “DeepState” players, but the price is that he gets Ukraine, and who knows what else, ultimately.  They pretend Putin’s insane.  That’s misdirection and misinformation: He’s as coldly calculating as he’s ever been. He’s still a murderer, but right now, he’s their contract-killer.

Why? Why would they give up all of this?  In part, the answer lies in the clean-up Putin is doing, but the greater will be in the clean-up he’s doing for them on the new Iran Deal he’s negotiating on their behalf.  Levin has the first part of this figured out.  He sees that the reason the Biden administration is doing nothing effective with respect to punishing Putin is because they’re in league with Putin.  He may not be a team-mate, precisely, but he’s a contractor. He’s a hired hit-man.  He’s behaving as their agent.  If he disappears or outright kills Zelenskiy, so much the better.  Despite what you may have heard, Zelenskiy is no angel either.  He just has better press than his predecessor, and slightly less corruption.  Rather than seeking to protect Zelenskiy, the American mobsters may very well want him taken out.

Why?  I think they’re desperate to make the new deal with Iran.  I think the reason Obama and Kerry and others spent so much time trying to talk to the Iranians during Trump’s presidency was to say “look, we’ll fix this, don’t burn us, we’ll fix it and we’ll get you greater concessions and even more cash. Just stick with us until we ditch Trump.”  Remember Obama’s world-wide private shuttle-diplomacy during Trump’s presidency?  Obama and his crew are being blackmailed by the Iranians.  For what?  They used Ukraine as a cut-out and as a money laundry.  We’ve all assumed it was for mere greed on their parts, but was it something more?  Who else was in on the grift?  The reason they had to bring Putin in was because the Iranians no longer trust the Obama-Clinton-Biden gangsters.  If you can imagine it, the Iranians consider Putin to be an “honest broker,” or at least a devil they’ll trust. He stands to gain mightily in all of this, as he’ll undoubtedly make sure Russia provides them the nuclear expertise to finally build their own nuclear-tipped ICBMs.

This is why they had to dispense with Trump.  It has to be.  Their actions were so outrageous, they pulled every string, they called in every marker, they sacrificed sleepers, and they made their play to steal the election with no regard to how obvious it would be.  They pulled in every RINO, every DeepStaters, they used their corrupt federal judges, they played all their crooked friends at DOJ, including Bill Barr.  They worked every line. Had they gotten Garland onto the Supreme Court, they’d have had this crook in the most important court.  That doesn’t mean they didn’t sneak one in anyway.

You wonder why Amy Coney Barrett and Bret Kavanaugh now look to have been dud picks?  Can you see it?  Washington DC is full of people, everywhere, and in every guise, who are on the hook with this crowd.  They played every angle.  If they’re ever discovered and proven guilty, they’re on the hook for more than election fraud.  This is treason, pure and simple.  This is their gang making war against the United States and her people.

What is it that the Iranians have on these people? That’s what really lies at the bottom of this cesspool.  If Mark Levin figures out that piece of it, and if he can substantially tie it back to the rest of these pieces, he’ll blow the lid off of it all like he did five years ago this week, when he put together the Spygate story, at least the basic guts of it.  I fear for Mark.  These people are ruthless.  They’ve killed other prominent people to hide their crimes.  If he uncovers too much, will he end up like Antonin Scalia?  (Dead in bed with a pillow over his face?  No autopsy, assumptions about his heart conditions and age, a quick cremation, and a family that looks as though they’ve been told: “Hey, everybody can be gotten-to?”)

I know this must all sound a little bit crazy, but I want you, my reader, to think carefully about what you’ve seen over the last dozen years.  Why did Lindsey Graham do a two-year stint as chairman of a committee, shifting from another when he did?  Mitch McConnell didn’t make that play accidentally.  He put Graham there to guide through nominees for a particular purpose.  It’s all very peculiar once you think about it.  Lindsey Graham’s tough-talk about Putin is a smokescreen.  The last thing he wants is Putin dead.  That was a message to Putin.  It was a signal, but not the sort you’d think based on its content.  There’s a reason Kamala is being sent to Europe again, and it has nothing to do with peace.  It has everything to do with avoiding the ever-listening ears of the NSA.  Who better than the 3rd Term of the Obama Administration to understand the capabilities of our surveillance?  It has to do with the fact that you never say over any electronic communications platform that which you do not want overheard, intercepted, or copied by anyone.

The freedom of the Ukrainian people is being sacrificed on the altar of the American political mafia that is the DC UniParty.  Putin is not a mad-man. He’s a hired gun who will be paid handsomely for his efforts.  Crimea was the first installment.  At least the Eastern half of the Ukraine will be the second installment.  Ask yourself what Rosemont Seneca was really all about.  Why did it have dealings with EcoHealth Alliance?  Ask yourself who really got paid after Rosatom secured the Uranium.  It’s the same crowd.  They’re in on all of it.  “I’ll have more flexibility after this election.”  You’re witnessing treason.

If somebody ever puts the full story together, we’re going to discover that these people are willing to see all of us reduced to glowing, irradiated ash, hopefully before they resort to that action.

As one positive note, it’s clear that Levin has finally realized that Bill Barr isn’t a good guy. Score that as a win. One of Levin’s biggest weaknesses is that he’s too easily played by the personal congeniality of these monsters, and they exploit it, and him, repeatedly.  Their real aim is ever to exploit his audience.  Dearest Mark needs to view them all as ruthless killers, smile at them, make nice, and assume they’re preparing to stick a shiv between his ribs, striking them first instead.  (Figuratively speaking, of course.)  We need Levin at the top of his analytical game, more now than ever.  Maybe this time, it will fall to somebody else to figure it all out.  There are amazingly enterprising researchers and investigators still around.  The excellent reporter Julie Kelly comes to mind.  She’s a pitbull when she sinks her teeth into a story.  Let’s hope one of them picks up the mantle if Levin fails to spot it this time. I’m still hoping Mark will put it together. He’s a sharp guy, and I think he’s really close now. It’s too simple and it would be foolishly naïve to think it’s only about the left’s normal agenda of destroying America.  It’s bigger than that, and it’s more brutally criminal than that.  These people are personally invested in seeing this through in a way that suggests they’re covering-up something much more diabolical than the usual political subterfuge.  There’s a reason Obama isn’t enjoying retirement, and it isn’t because he dreams of spending his days wrecking America from his basement in Martha’s Vineyard.  His third term is about the survival of the American political mafia, or the “Deep State,” if you prefer.  They’re all in now.  Everything is on the line. Everything.

Update: At the time I wrote this post, Levin’s show of Friday, March 4th, 2022 was not yet available on his audio rewind page. It is now. Listen here.

Update 2: How convenient: Bill Clinton announces the Clinton Global Initiative is back!  The DC Mafia won’t give up the grift.

Editor’s Note: For those who think the notion that Vladimir Putin could be “in on it” with these people is a ludicrous proposition, I’d remind you: Nothing in geopolitics is ever as it seems. Remember when Putin was loved in Hollywood? No? Remember this, from the era of Hillary’s infamous reset button:

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

Thursday, March 3rd, 2022

The difficult chore of maintaining credibility in the era of FakeNews

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

Dirty Politics in Texas and Jeb’s Revenge on Trump

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022

Will Jeb have the last laugh At Texans’ Expense?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Crazy People Are Driving Us to Nuclear Catastrophe

Tuesday, March 1st, 2022

This is no longer a game

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Oh Canada! Our Canadian Neighbors Rally Against Evil

Friday, February 11th, 2022

Glorious and Free

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

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


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

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

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

Canadian Truckers fighting for you

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

Friday, August 27th, 2021

John Bennett, First Sergeant, USMC, Retired

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

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

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

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

President Trump 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

Saturday, August 21st, 2021

Sucharit Bhakdi was born in Washington, DC, and educated at schools in Switzerland, Egypt, and Thailand. He studied medicine at the University of Bonn in Germany, where he received his MD in 1970. He was a post-doctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg from 1972 to 1976, and at The Protein Laboratory in Copenhagen from 1976 to 1977. He joined the Institute of Medical Microbiology at Giessen University in 1977 and was appointed associate professor in 1982. He was named chair of Medical Microbiology at the University of Mainz in 1990, where he remained until his retirement in 2012. Dr. Bhakdi has published over three hundred articles in the fields of immunology, bacteriology, virology, and parasitology, for which he has received numerous awards and the Order of Merit of Rhineland-Palatinate.

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:

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)

Friday, January 8th, 2021

One More DC Dirt-Bag

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

OMG! Incitement of Unrest!

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.

 

Boom: Sidney Powell Releasing the Kraken

We Must Remove Them All

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.
