Naomi Wolf nails it on lockdowns and totalitarianism

Naomi Wolf discovered the Bill of Rights during the Bush years and believes in it regardless of which party controls Washington, D.C.

Longtime blog readers know that I attended high school with Naomi Wolf. She was a year behind me, but a lot of her friends were in my year and, if my memory serves me correctly, she was in my English class with the brilliant Flossie Lewis (a teacher known to generations of Lowell students).

I was not a Naomi fan because, in honest retrospect, I wasn’t in her league. She was brilliant and beautiful, an airy-fairy hippie chick who managed to make it look easy to get good grades. She was never arrogant about her looks but she was arrogant about her brains and, quite sweetly, she put me in my place more than once.

Because I’d known her personally, I paid attention to Naomi’s career trajectory in the 1990s. (Note: I’ve never seen or spoken to her since high school.) I read The Beauty Myth and, for a brief while, became a bristling third-wave feminist. I got too busy with life to hang onto that notion, though, and then had children. Because I was then a Clinton supporter, I was envious of the fact that Naomi was in the Clintons’ inner political circle. Still, I was able to laugh when I learned that she had given Gore advice in 1999 about his color choices to make him more appealing to voters.

As I hewed right and Naomi remained on the left, I became less impressed with her, as I am with all leftists. She spoke out in support of burqas and vaginas, acknowledged that abortion is homicide but still supported it, constantly attacked George Bush, was anti-war and anti-Israel, and worried about chemtrails. In other words, a leftist crackpot, albeit a brilliant one. She really fell apart when she wrote a book about all the people executed in Victorian England for being gay, without understanding that none were executed. She’d misunderstood the historic records, which is apparently a fairly common problem for Naomi and is her greatest weakness. She’s brilliant but careless. It makes it easy to undermine all her positions, whether or not they’re good.

And it turns out that some of Naomi’s positions are good — at least her position about a free, constitutional society that honors the Bill of Rights. Beginning under the Bush presidency, because of the various anti-terrorism acts that went into effect then, Naomi suddenly became an ardent civil libertarian. Where Naomi gets huge points is that she has continued to be an ardent civil libertarian regardless of which political party holds sway in Washington, D.C.

Because of that intellectual honesty, Naomi has been horrified by the lockdowns and the whole package of power grabs in which both the state and federal governments have engaged, using the excuse of the Wuhan virus to do so. For that reason, Tucker had her on his Monday night show.

Frankly, Naomi didn’t say anything you and I haven’t been saying for a long time. What made it unique was that it was coming from a leftist. Suddenly she’s another Glenn Greenwald — an honest leftist fighting back against the totalitarianism coming from leftist governments. Also, because she’s really bright, Naomi said all these things well. I urge you to watch this video and take it very seriously, especially Naomi’s point about the very small window of time we have left to push back before losing our rights forever. I do what I can with my writing because that’s my one and only strength. What can you do?

The Democrats’ Helter Skelter approach to racial politics

The Democrats seem determined to foment a race war in America. Are they intentionally trying to replicate Manson’s Helter Skelter theory?

Across America, the current Democrat policy is focused with laser-like intensity on fomenting racial discord. This is true within federal and state governments and within large corporations that are staffed with woke college graduates. Here are just a few examples from recent days. I could easily find, not dozens, but hundreds of more examples, maybe even thousands:

1. Coca-Cola has confirmed that it was training its employees to “try to be less white,” a racist notion if there ever was one.

2. Washington state illegally funneled COVID relief money to radical political groups based upon racial criteria.

3. Jodi Shaw, an incredibly brave former Smith employee, wrote a public resignation letter in which she detailed the demeaning racist harassment she suffered because she is white.

4. An experienced administrator in the Bronx is suing her school district based on her allegations that the district harassed her relentlessly and then demoted her because she shared a Holocaust story about her family and refused to give a “Wakanda salute.”

5. Although it’s a “north of the border” story, this report out of Canada fits in perfectly with the Democrat approach: a school district is hunting down anonymous students who dared to set up an Instagram account claiming that all people are created equal and should be judged by the actions, not by the color of their skin.

6. Oregon’s official policy now is that math as it is currently taught in schools is racist because it requires students to give the right answers — and that requirement is a dangerous example of inherent white malevolence and a determination to destroy other races.

7. The Oregon story leads me generally to what’s going on in American schools. On Friday, Tucker Carlson devoted his entire hour-long show to reports of the way in which America’s public schools are intentionally demeaning whites on solely racial grounds:

Watch the video while you can for I’m sure it will be pulled soon.

8. Kristen Clarke, who is Biden’s nominee to the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, has claimed that whites are genetically inferior and that race must factor into every decision in America.

And of course, there’s the official White House and Democrat party line that events on January 6 were the actions of armed white insurrectionists attempting a coup. The various federal Democrat people and entities make this claim even though the only ones armed were law enforcement officers, one of whom killed a woman; it’s apparent that leftists were heavily involved in fomenting and then acting in the events of January 6; and neither Trump nor his supporters have ever done anything other than to claim that Trump’s policies will benefit everyone and that we should all be treated equally. That last notion, of course, is a sure sign of white supremacy in the year 2021.

We are not witnessing the random actions of a few racial crackpots. Instead, across America, at every level — education, corporations, and government — the Democrat message is clear: Whites are inherently inferior and their “genetic traits,” which shamefully include punctuality, ambition, loyalty, reliability, and good math, are dangerously racist.

Before 1860, the message in large parts of America was that blacks were inherently inferior, a policy that propped up slavery. That led to a Civil War resulting in 650,000 Americans dead out of a population of only 31.5 million.

Between 1865 and the 1960s, the message in large parts of America was that blacks were inherently inferior, a policy that propped up Jim Crow and true systemic racism. That is, across America, various governments and many institutions (i.e., large corporations, especially banks) had policies that openly discriminated against black people. This destroyed lives, blighted talent and hard work, and led to the vast social dislocation of the 1960s, something that provided an opening to communists and that still affects America today.

Now, in 2021, the message the Democrats are sending across America, one being hammered home with increasing ferocity and with the power of the state to enforce it, is that whites are inherently inferior and, on top of that, evil. Whites therefore need to be abused, demeaned, diluted (via illegal immigration), and systematically shut out of America’s civil society.

Here’s the irony behind this un-American, dangerous sentiment: This anti-white policy comes down via white people (Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, and other whites in D.C.; and Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, Jeff Bezos, and other whites who amassed power through technology). When I look at the problem through that filter, all I can think of is Charles Manson and “Helter Skelter.”

Older readers will remember what Helter Skelter means. At bottom, it was simply a song from the Beatles’ edgy White Album. Charles Manson, though, was sure that the phrase, the song, and the album itself had a deeper meaning.

Wikipedia does an adequate job of summing up the Helter Skelter philosophy that Manson created and that inspired his followers to brutally slaughter seven people in the Los Angeles hills (hyperlinks and footnotes omitted):

Charles Manson had been predicting racial war for some time before he used the term Helter Skelter. His first use of the term was at a gathering of the Family on New Year’s Eve 1968 at Myers Ranch near California’s Death Valley. The scenario had Manson as the war’s ultimate beneficiary and its musical cause. He and the Family would create an album with songs whose messages would be as subtle as those he had heard in songs of the Beatles. This would not merely foretell the conflict but would trigger it by instructing “the young love”, meaning white American youth, to join the Family, and it would draw the young, white female hippies out of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury.

Black men would thus be deprived of the white women whom the political changes of the 1960s had made sexually available to them and would lash out in violent crimes against whites. Frightened whites would retaliate with a murderous rampage, and militant blacks would exploit it to provoke a war of near-extermination between racist whites and non-racist whites over the treatment of blacks. Then the militant blacks would arise to finish off the few whites who survived; in fact, they would kill off all non-blacks.

In this holocaust, the members of the enlarged Family would have little to fear; they would wait out the war in a secret city that was underneath Death Valley which they would reach through a hole in the ground. They would be the only remaining whites upon the race war’s conclusion, and they would emerge from underground to rule the blacks who, as the vision went, would be incapable of running the world. At that point, Manson “would scratch [the black man’s] fuzzy head and kick him in the butt and tell him to go pick the cotton and go be a good nigger”.

Incidentally, regarding the sexual element in Manson’s theory, it’s noteworthy that, to celebrate Black History Month, Northwestern University created an interactive “BDSM FUNdamentals” workshop:

And here’s a bonus: The class on how bondage and polygamy can be employed to score said liberation will be taught by a “two spirit Black and Indigenous facilitator and healer.”

That’s right — participants will learn from “Vee AKA: Electr0papi (They/She),” who’s reportedly “an electro play and fire play enthusiast as well as a rope suspension top.”

A lot of really bad 1960s ideas are flowering now, thanks to the seeds planted and nurtured in academia (which especially affect Silicon Valley), as well as the 1960s/1970s generation holding power in D.C. (see the aforementioned Biden, Pelosi, Gates, etc.). I’m beginning to fear that one of these really bad ideas is an updated version of Charles Manson’s Helter Skelter theory of a race war followed by total white control over black people. Steeped in this highly racist, anti-white ideology, it doesn’t matter to these people that blacks make up only 13% of the population. They don’t care that this racial balance means that it’s unlikely blacks will prevail in such a war and more likely that, after some unspeakable brutality on both sides, they’ll lose the war.

What matters is that they badly want a war. And if it’s a war they want, I’m terrified that it’s a war they’ll get.

Rush Limbaugh, RIP

Rush Limbaugh, the man whose reasoned thinking and incredible communication skills terrified leftists for decades, passed away today.

Rush Limbaugh passed away today. His death was not a surprise, for he spent more than a year fighting hard against the lung cancer that finally claimed him.

Rush was a great man, one who had an extraordinary understanding of life, values, political systems, and both the evil and the goodness that lives within people. He had the even more extraordinary knack of being able to articulate his knowledge — day in and day out, three hours a day, for decades — in a way that was never condescending but was always clear and interesting. We shall not look upon his like again.

In 2010, I wrote about Rush Limbaugh’s extraordinary powers. To my great surprise and everlasting honor, he read that post on the air. It seems worth reprinting it today for my sentiments about the man have never changed:

************************

If you’d been around in 1894, you would instantly have recognized the name “Svengali.”  He was the chief villain in George du Maurier’s blockbuster novel Trilby. The Svengali plot-line was a simple one:  Trilby was an innocent (and tone-deaf) laundress and model living in fin de siecle Paris.  Svengali hypnotized her into bec0ming a great singer and the toast of the music world.  When he suffered a heart attack during one of her performances, his spell over her broke, and she was left standing on stage, bewildered and humiliated.  Since then, we use the word “svengali” to describe a person who steals the will of another with evil intent.

It’s become increasingly clear to me that liberals view Rush Limbaugh in precisely that light.  And no, I’m not making the obvious point that the Obami coterie and the Democratic party fear Rush’s bully pulpit and consistently demonize him.  I’m talking about the rank-and-file’s fear that even listening to Rush for a moment or two causes a person to lose the will to be a liberal.  Those liberals to whom I speak shy away from him, not because they disagree with what he has to say, but because they fear he will convince them that he’s right.

The following is a talk I had just the other day while driving in the car with a liberal friend who, having voted for Obama, is now deeply regretting that decision:

Me:  How would you like to do something completely different?  Let me put Rush on the radio.

Her:  No, no.  I don’t want to do that.

Me:  Come on, you’ll like him.  He’s not at all the way you’ve heard him described in the other media.  He’s very well-informed, quite funny, and amazingly prescient.

Her:  No, no.  He’s too arrogant.

Me:  Nah.  That’s just an act.  Give it a try, for just a few minutes.

Her:  No.  I can’t listen to him.  [Then, as a sop:]  I watch Fox sometimes.

So here we have a woman who realizes that she made a mistake voting Democrat this election, who is open to conservative news (I believe her when she says she watches Fox), yet who assiduously avoids any contact with Rush.  Incidentally, this was not a one time-0nly conversation.  I had virtually the same conversation with two other regret-filled liberals.

The belligerently liberal ones are equally averse to exposing themselves to Rush.

Me:  I challenge you to listen to Rush for a half hour.

Him:  No.  He’s an idiot.

Me:  Have you ever listened to him?

Him:  No.

Me:  Then how do you know he’s an idiot?

Him:  He is.  He’s a wacko.  He doesn’t know anything.

Me:  How do you know that?

Him:  Are you trying to make me mad?

Me:  No.  But I do think that you should listen to him.  At least then you’d have first hand knowledge of what he says and whether you agree or disagree with it.

Him:  I’m not going to waste my time.

And so on, ad infinitum and definitely ad nauseum.

During the 1990s, when I was an unthinking liberal, I knew Rush was out there, but he existed on the periphery of my existence.  I read Al Franken’s Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot and laughed at how “stupid” Rush was, but I actually didn’t care about any of the core issues at stake.  I had no interest whatsoever in finding out what Rush was like because nothing he said really mattered.  I was working hard at my career, getting married, starting a family, and was therefore disinterested in things political.  The world seemed to be rolling along just right, with a Democratic president and a booming economy.

To give myself some retroactive credit, though, if a conservative had challenged me back then to listen to Rush, I would have done so — because I would have been certain that Rush was a big joke, and that I could have laughed at him just as Franken did.  I might have expected to be bored or offended, but I wouldn’t have been worried about being mesmerized and brainwashed.

And then came September 11, 2001, and I started paying attention.  I began to be concerned about what was going on around me.  This concern led me to start reading anything I could get my hands on about all sorts of subjects.  I read blogs, both liberal and conservative.  I opened my mind to the possibility that my attachment to the Democratic party was wrong — a possibility helped by the fact that I found myself agreeing with the major political decisions George Bush was making, both regarding national security and the economy.  In other words, once I realized that my old political staples were failing, I started looking for new information.  I wasn’t scared of the new information but, rather, was curious.

Both my old attitude (“Sure, bring silly Rush on, ’cause he’ll be good for a laugh”) and my new attitude (“There’s something out there I need to learn about”) make it impossible for me to understand the resistance, shading into fear, that my friends and family show when confronted with the possibility that they might hear a minute or two of Rush’s mellifluous tones over the airways.  They don’t seem to recognize either the possibility that they might laugh at a fool or learn from a wise man.  Instead, they seem genuinely afraid that any exposure to Rush will corrupt them irreparably.  Like poor Trilby, they’ll be seduced into an unsustainable way of being, only to find themselves suddenly abandoned and exposed.  To them, Rush is no mere conservative; he is Satan incarnate, a tempter who will destroy their liberal souls and leave them in an endless conservative Hell.

It’s quite a high compliment to Rush that ordinary liberals believe he has extraordinary powers.  It isn’t every conservative radio or talk show host who is perceived as so compelling and seductive that he can destroy people’s worldview in an instant.

It’s also very frustrating to me because, in a funny way, I agree with my liberal friends that Rush can rejigger their worldview very quickly.  The only thing is that I don’t believe Rush works his magic through hypnotism and trickery.  Instead, I think Rush’s real magic lies in his ability to view the political world as a vast chessboard, one on which he can see multiple future moves; his prodigious memory; his well-informed mind; his logical analyses; and his funny persona.  He convinces by appealing to our rational mind, our sense of humor, and our knowledge of the world as it is, and not as some Ivory Tower liberal tells us it should be.

So, whether by cajolery or challenge, I’m still trying to get my liberals to listen to Rush.  For all the wrong reasons, they’re right about one thing:  he will change their minds.

Conservatives — we have to be our own deus ex machina

A theatrical deus ex machina will not appear in the next week to save us. We’re on our own but there are things we can do to save ourselves.

The news is clear about what’s happening today in America: The American private sector — social media, internet search engines, web hosting engines, 14,000 American companies, banks, media outlets — is systematically working to silence and destroy anyone who opposes the Democrat political agenda. For example, Mozilla’s leftist leadership, apparently finally over the “guilt by association” horrors of the McCarthy era (an era leftists still use as a rallying point), is reinstating guilt by association. It’s CEO, Mitchell Baker published a statement entitled “we need more than deplatforming.”

After applauding shutting down Trump, he had some specific prescriptions:

Changing these dangerous dynamics requires more than just the temporary silencing or permanent removal of bad actors from social media platforms.

Additional precise and specific actions must also be taken:  

Reveal who is paying for advertisements, how much they are paying and who is being targeted.

Commit to meaningful transparency of platform algorithms so we know how and what content is being amplified, to whom, and the associated impact.

Turn on by default the tools to amplify factual voices over disinformation.

Work with independent researchers to facilitate in-depth studies of the platforms’ impact on people and our societies, and what we can do to improve things.

In other words, pure McCarthyism: Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Republican party? Or a Trump supporter? Or someone who refuses to kneel when shown the American flag or hearing the national anthem?

It’s not surprising, of course. Do you remember that, back in 2008, Mozilla fired Brendan Eich, who created JavaScript and co-founded Mozilla, because he believed marriage is between a man and a woman? He moved on, thankfully, to found Brave, which I use as my browser.

Meanwhile, on the political front, congressional Democrats will impeach Trump again in a (futile) attempt to prevent him from a second crack at the presidency. They are also trying to boot from federal and state office anyone who claims that the election outcome resulted from fraud.

In the face of this profoundly un-American activity, I get a lot of emails promising me things. They promise me that Trump activated the insurrection act so that he and General Flynn can retake America. They promise me that pictures of Hunter Biden with 10-year-olds — and proof that Joe Biden was complicit — are about to be released. They promise me that Italy leaders, from the Pope on down, have been or will be arrested for (a) pedophilia, (b) murder, (c) interfering in the American election, or (d) all of the above. They promise me that people deep within the U.S. government have been turned and will publicly confess their election sins.

All of those emails are deus ex machina emails. Deus ex machina means “the god from the machine.” It was a theatrical device with roots in the ancient Greek theater. When the plot reached a point at which no human agency could save the beleaguered characters, a crane (the machine) would lower onto the stage an actor dressed as a god. There’d often be exciting noises and smoke to maintain the image. And then that “god” would set things right and ensure a happy ending. It’s a fiction. It’s not reality.

There is no insurrection act, there are no Italian confessions that anyone is going to act upon, there are no hidden witnesses about to come out. And even if all of that were true, the Democrats have clamped down on the engines of communication that would allow anyone to hear their sounds. Remember the philosophy question asking, “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there, does it make a sound?” Same goes here: If the truth is spoken but all the megaphones have been seized, can anyone hear?  No. The answer is no.

But… (You knew I was going to leave you on such a downer note, right?)

There actually is a deus ex machina here. It’s us. We are the ones who can make things right. I haven’t yet figured out how to deal with the election system, but we can make change against the private sector:

Social media: As we’ve long known, social media is not “free.” We have “free” access because the real money comes from advertisers who want to reach us. If conservatives get off social media — and I mean off, off — the advertisers lose interest. Democrats routinely destroy private businesses with boycotts, something I’ve found appalling. I no longer find it appalling. Any business that supports the suppression of speech deserves to die. Let a few conservative media types stay on social media so as to keep an eye on what’s going on. I recommend Twitchy, which stays abreast of Twitter so you don’t have to.

For the same reason, because of my paying work, I also have to stay on social media for stories but believe me that I won’t post there. (I just have to figure out how to stop the automatic posting I do now with this site. I set it up, but don’t remember how. Give me some time on that one.)

The flip side of this is that it’s time to go back to the old way of doing things: Follow your favorite conservative sites. Conservative sites are currently heavily dependent on social media for their traffic. If you’re going off social media, you need to support your favorite sites in another way. You can pay for an annual subscription, donate to their PayPal accounts, or simply visit them every single day, even if you don’t have time to read anything. If you have a site, reinstate the old practice of a “blog roll.” That lets your followers know which conservatives sites you think are worth following. Back in the day, this networking was how conservatives changed politics change before the switch to social media — and it’s how it can happen again. I’ll put together a blogroll over the next few weeks.

Also, cast your mind back to the fact that, even before social media, we used to communicate. We did it via emails, via phone calls, via snail mail, and via getting out and talking to people face to face. For the time being, there’s also this:

Boycott businesses and China: It’s time for us to do without, which isn’t a bad thing anyway considering how tight money is. As I said, I used to oppose mass boycotts but I’ve changed my mind. Stop buying anything from Amazon, which shut down Parler, except for conservative books or publications in line with what Sarah Hoyt recommends. I know Amazon is convenient, but there are other sites that will also mail products to you. And people like me, who hate shopping in brick and mortar stores had better learn how again.

If you can afford to do so, avoid Walmart, whether online or in person. Walmart is effectively a Chinese front. It destroyed American businesses by undercutting every American manufacturer by pushing cheap goods from China. If you do have to shop there, try to avoid Chinese-made products.

And yes, if a product is made in China, and you can get by without it, DON’T BUY IT. When it comes to cheap consumer goods, we’re like crack addicts keeping our dealers in money. I was reading boxes like crazy yesterday when I went out shopping and discovered that I can make do without all kinds of things. Thankfully, the home fire extinguisher was made in Mexico.

While I encourage you to buy American, if you buy things, buy from patriotic companies. If at all possible, don’t buy from the companies who belong to the Business Roundtable, because it’s their organization that’s trying to kick Trump out of office in the few days left to him. You’ll be surprised to discover how many products you can do without. For example, is there anything the Coca Cola company makes that’s actually good for you? They peddle products that make Americans fat, unhealthy, and poor.

I understand that we still live in the world and that we’re going to buy stuff from those 14,000 companies. However, I urge you to go through the list and figure out what you can do without. If we all trim down our purchases, those companies are going to hurt.

If you haven’t already, unless your college is Hillsdale, stop sending it money when you get those alumni requests. All American colleges and universities are hotbeds of leftist indoctrination. I don’t care about their football or basketball teams, and nor should you. Those are just ways to inveigle more people into the propaganda machine.

Other ideas for our being the gods from the machine that save us are welcome here. This is just a start. But for goodness sake, we’ve got to stop funding the people and nations that despise us. We’ve got to stop being the money trees funding our own destruction.

If you’re feeling despair, well, I am too. But as I keep saying, depression and despair are passive emotions. Democrats would be delighted if we were depressed and despairing. Instead, we have to be the engines of change. Turn those feelings into anger and optimism. We can act and we will act.

And let me be perfectly clear: I am talking about legal, non-violent action. Dig out Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and follow them. He advocated clever, non-violent tactics, and he was exactly right, as we know to our cost. Remember, the tactics are good; it was just the leftist goals that were bad.

Copy the Democrat boycott machine. And remember that it wasn’t just that Democrats stopped buying products. They would inundate the companies they were boycotting with phone calls, emails, letters, etc., letting the companies know exactly what was coming their way.

Get involved in local organizations, where change happens first. Get on the school board, get on the water board, get on the local college board, volunteer to work with immigrants (including those damn illegal ones) so that they get exposed to conservative ideas instead of only socialist ones. Follow that stupid leftist mantra: Be The Change.

Leftists took the culture; we can re-take it — and we can do it without a single smidgen of violence. Why? Because the leftists will help us. First, their coalition is a house of sand. They divided, and then subdivided, and the sub-sub-divided people into dozens of victim/identity groups and told all of them that the enemy was on the right. With the right routed, there is nothing to hold these groups together. They will destroy each other in the rush for spoils. I’m waiting for the day when the Squad realizes that Pelosi is an old white woman wrongfully occupying a spot that belongs to one of them — and brutally de-thrones her.

Second, as we’ve witnessed in Democrat-run states this year, they may be ruthless, but they’re also utterly incompetent. Their gift is destruction. They have no other abilities.

To sum up this post: Things are really bad. There is no magical deus ex machina who’s going to appear in the next nine days to save America. Therefore, it’s up to us to act. We have the power — the legal, non-violent power — but we have to stop waiting for someone else to do it for us.

I’ll leave you with the words of Harry Truman, harking back to a time when Democrats still had American values:

Is the whole government in on this fraudulent election? By Robert Arvay

Is the whole government in on this fraudulent election?

By Robert Arvay

Every once in a while, most of us wind up in situations where we are completely baffled.  It may be a simple situation, such as having looked literally everywhere for our reading glasses, and not having found them.  Did they violate the laws of physics and just vanish?  One knows that that cannot be true, and yet, as the old saying goes, once one has ruled out every logical possibility, only the illogical remains, no matter how unlikely it is.

Another situation is the one we are in now.  Any informed person, with a modicum of sense, can see that the presidential election results, at best, are not to be trusted and at worst are rampantly fraudulent.  Yet it seems that court after court, and investigative agencies one after the other, are turning a blind eye.  Are they violating the laws of physics?

It turns out that the reading glasses did not disappear; they were in place, but pushed up, on one’s forehead all along.  There was a logical explanation after all.

And sadly, it turns out that the courts and government agencies were not turning a blind eye.  They have been, all along, part of the fraud.  No matter how unlikely that seems, it is the only answer remaining.

In other words, we lost this battle a long time ago.  As soon as Trump was elected president in 2016, the dark state realized that it had blundered.  Its members had underestimated the degree of fraud it would need to defeat him.  This time, they removed all possibility of failure, and even then, they needed vastly more fraud than even they had anticipated.  Stuffing the ballot boxes was not enough; they had to call time out, for a few hours, so they could print yet more ballots.  Indeed, they printed so many more that the sheer number of them made it obvious that they were cheating.

One might think they overplayed their hand, that they had used a sledgehammer to swat a mosquito.  In doing so, they removed all reasonable doubt — the election was clearly rigged.  But the dark state was so desperate that its operatives cared nothing for how it seems to the informed observer.  Nothing.  They just had to make absolutely sure that there would be no way that Donald Trump would be declared the winner.

The culprits were not merely the usual suspects — the Adam Schiffs and Eric Swallwells and their ilk.  As profoundly and obviously corrupt as they are, they are weak.  They could not have pulled this off without some heavyweight criminals in high places, including the courts, the premier law enforcement agencies, the intelligence bureaus, and the private sector communications companies.

It is certain that President Trump has been a wrecking ball against the dark state.  He came at it with courage, resolve, and a level of acumen that the left had dangerously underestimated.  The 2020 election was, as the establishment saw it, the last and final chance to remove the threat he poses to their power.  Had the election been honest, Trump would have won so overwhelmingly that the Democrat Party, for one, would have become a thing of the past.  Trillions of dollars were at stake worldwide, including in China.  People go to war for that kind of money and that level of power.

It is unsurprising, then, that there was nothing, literally nothing, from which the dark state would refrain, in its attack — not even if it destroys the republic.  This was the final banzai charge.  It was do or die.

There is only one remaining backstop that can defeat the dark state.  It is we, the people, the heirs of 1776.  In that year, the Founders declared their concerns not only for themselves, but for their as yet unborn “posterity.”  They cared about us.  Will we care as much for our descendants?

Now we know for sure that our judges and justices are abject cowards

Now we know for sure that our judges and justices are abject cowards

Several weeks ago, we worried that the judges and justices, state and federal, may not have the courage to take up the cases before them addressing the massive election fraud that took place November 3rd.  Now we know that they are all cowards, the Constitution be damned.  

Even the three SCOTUS justices Trump fought for were too terrified to do the right thing.

The intimidation tactics of the left – Antifa, BLM, and the campus fascists — have worked.  They have frightened each and every judge and justice, with the not surprising exceptions of Clarence Thomas and Sam Alito, into disregarding Articles II and III of the Constitution.  

The vote fraud that took place in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada was monstrous and long planned.  Election laws were surreptitiously weakened by secret consent decrees (GA), mass mail-in ballots, Dominion vote machines programmed to flip votes, the creation of tens of thousands of fake ballots, illegal alien voting, illegal drop boxes, get-out-the-vote campaigns in Democrat-heavy districts paid for by the execrable Zuckerberg of Facebook infamy, the refusal to allow GOP observers, ballots trucked from one state to another.  

The judges dismissed lawsuits in every court where one was filed by the Trump campaign or other plaintiffs, seemingly without even considering the details.  The Supreme Court justices surely all know what took place; they can’t have missed all the hearings at which witnesses to fraud testified and signed affidavits as to the truth of what they observed.  But the judges and justices were afraid.  Now that the left seems to have successfully stolen the election, they will certainly do it again.  They have the permission of the SCOTUS.  Margot Cleveland does a masterful job explaining how cowardly the court’s dismissal was. 

Every remotely sentient American by now knows that the Democrats cheated every conceivable way possible.  Around 30% of Democrats reportedly do not believe the final result.  Biden did little actual campaigning but knew his win was in the bag thanks to the combined forces of big tech (Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter), the mainstream media that is the propaganda arm of the DNC, and all those Soros-installed state secretaries of state, AGs, and election officials willing to do the left’s and Soros’s bidding for a price.  

The nine justices on the Supreme Court surely know all this as well.  They know it all but refused to take the case just as all those state judges dismissed the cases before them.  They are simply scared to do the job they swore to do – uphold the Constitution.  

One has to wonder, how many of them have been threatened?  Have they had their families threatened?   So, the bottom line is that none of them should ever have been seated on those courts in the first place, not Gorsuch, Kavanaugh or Barrett to say the least.  Not because Trump nominated them but because when the going got tough, they folded like cheap tents.  All of them except Thomas and Alito, forever true heroes for they are the real thing.  How profoundly disappointing is it that Kavanaugh, whom so many fought so hard for, did not have the guts to stand up against the overwhelming Democrat vote fraud that took place.  They are all scaredy cats, like little children running from bullies.   

It appears that the left’s strategy of “obey us or suffer the consequences” has worked.  They looted and burned numerous cites over the summer vowing that law enforcement must be defunded or disbanded.  Biden and Harris failed to condemn the rioting and Harris staffers raised bail money for the rioters.  And now we are to believe they won!  

Biden will never be considered the legitimate president by the eighty million (not the 74 the left claims) people who did vote for Trump.  Biden has always been a greedy power seeker, a liar, a plagiarist, a racist, a groper of women of all ages, and an all-around very nasty man.  Ask anyone who knows him personally.  And now we know that he and his family are nothing but grifters on a grand, global scale.  

There is no way Joe Biden was fairly elected.  The left planned on cheating; they just did not plan on having to make it so obvious.  Even big tech and the media, so deranged by Trump hatred, failed to realize how much most Americans came to love and respect this President.  

Obviously, Biden is not well, he is declining quickly.  And now that the family’s illegal financial dealings around the world are coming to light, their allegiance and submission to China for example.

Biden may have to resign (if inaugurated) within months.  If that happens and the absurdly unqualified Harris becomes president, the America we knew and loved will be over.  The US will be just another rough and brutal place run by some really awful people drunk on power.  See Peter Weston’s short video to get a Brit’s perspective on the degeneration of our once democratic republic.   And say a little prayer of sadness for all the judges who dismissed valid cases probably without reading them and for the wholesale failure of the Supreme Court of the US to do its due diligence and uphold the Constitution. 

George S. Patton once wrote: 

“Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best’ it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle.  The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty.”

Are the Democrats waking the sleeping giant?

Democrats and monopartiers think they’ve won today but they may have sown the wind and will reap the whirlwind, by waking the sleeping giant.

There are a few points I find myself making in my responses to emails from worried and unhappy people. There’s a common thread I’m seeing in my own writing, so I thought I’d see if I could pull it all together in this post.

Here’s a preliminary but important point: Don’t give in to depression and despair. Both of those are emotions that encourage passivity.

No matter what is coming down the pike, we are effective only if we’re energized. In that regard, I have to give the leftists credit for keeping anger as their battery power for four endless years.

We constitutional patriots are going to do it differently: We’re going to combine anger at a fraudulent election process with optimism and patriotism. That mixture of righteousness and the happy warrior spirit is the source of true power. It will keep us going whether our fight ends with Trump’s second inauguration or whether we keep the American flame burning until Trump’s second election or the election of any one of a number of extraordinary conservative young people coming up in America today.

And now for my sleeping giant point: A lot of people despair that not enough Americans, including disappointed Trump voters, will act going forward. Instead, they will become the numbed vassals of the tech tyrants and our new Chinese overlords.

I think that the people worrying about this outcome aren’t taking into account the huge efforts Democrats and other members of the monoparty (more on that monoparty, below), all of whom control the Deep State, have made to wake that sleeping American giant. Up until these efforts, the reality was that working- and middle-class people were not activists and were the last people to man their barricades. They simply had too much to lose.

As I’ve said over and over for years, people with mortgages, car payments, apartment rent, dependents, retirement funds and, most important, a stable or rising standard of living will never rock the boat. This is why, incidentally, ordinary FBI agents were perfectly agreeable when they saw their superiors engage in the Russia hoax. Even if their consciences bothered them, their mortgages and 401K plans bothered them more.

But what happens when the party about to take complete political power deliberately destroys the working and middle classes? And note, please, that when I say “the party,” I mean the monoparty. This isn’t just Democrats, although it’s mostly Democrats. It includes RINOS, NeverTrumpers, and monoparty “Republicans” who go where the money and power are.

So I ask again, what happens when this monoparty engages in politics that are manifestly intended to destroy the working- and middle-classes while enriching preferred constituents? And I’m not just talking here about the lockdowns, which wiped out American restaurants (bastion of family businesses), mom-and-pop stores, hair salons, etc. And it’s not just that these policies, by shutting down ordinary businesses and otherwise trapping people in their homes, enormously enriched the big retailers (Walmart, Amazon, etc.) and the tech tyrants (Microsoft, Google, Facebook, etc.).

Instead, I’m also talking about Nancy Pelosi admitting she refused to agree to another stimulus bill because it would have benefitted Trump, not Biden. And Oregon’s unconstitutional decision to use Wuhan virus relief money only to benefit minorities, not similarly situated non-minorities. And the way politicians (mostly Dems, but also a few Republicans) have been flouting their own rules, as if to rub everyone’s face into the way they’re being destroyed. And the AMA’s decision, after hundreds of thousands are claimed to have died from the Wuhan virus (numbers I question), to announce suddenly that, with Joe Biden heading for the White House, hydroxychloroquine is now an approved medicine. If that was as politically driven a decision as it appears, the members of the AMA are mass murderers. And I’m talking about Bill Gates placidly announcing that the lockdowns should continue into 2022 just to make sure everything is his version of safe. And I’m sure you can come up with your own examples of the monoparty not just putting its collective thumb on the scale, but doing so blatantly and with glee.

We’re seeing a perfect storm here: The monoparty (mostly Democrats) have engaged in policies that have destroyed, and are destroying, everything that kept working- and middle-class people stable and non-rebellious. Not only that, they’ve done so in the most offensive ways possible, continuously reminding these same working- and middle-class people that, even as their lives are being ruined, the protected classes are subject to different rules and are doing just fine, thank you very much. They’ve also worked hard to sow racial divisions, so that Americans cannot come together to fight this oligarchy. And just to ice that toxic cake, this whole lockdown might have been stopped instantly if the monoparty hadn’t decided that a medicine Trump recommended must instantly be treated like poison.

And then, on top of it all, to gild the icing on that toxic cake (yeah, yeah, metaphors run amok), the monoparty commits blatant election fraud to push into the White House a man who never left his basement, who inspired no enthusiasm, who had negative coattails, who has a 48-year record of corruption and stupidity, who pimped out his son to America’s geopolitical and economy enemies for cash, who dances to China’s tune, and who is drifting into senility.

People who have nothing left to lose, and who see unworthy people stealing everything they have, are a people ripe for rebellion. These are not college students with imaginary grievances or mentally-ill (and often criminally perverted) Antifa types who are ripe for a riot or some fun looting. Instead, these are people who responded to Pearl Harbor, or who rose up in the Warsaw Ghetto, or who fought the most powerful military in the world in the second half of the 18th century, or who engaged in the Battle of Athens.

Right now, the corrupt American media, working with the tech tyrants, is ridiculing these Americans, hiding information from them, and trying to brainwash them into thinking all is well. All is not well. I think bad things, really bad things, are going to happen.

I don’t say this with relish. I have always lived a protected, peaceful life, and I both hoped and assumed that my life would continue that way until I died in my bed of advanced age. I never wanted to replicate my parents’ experience of Depression, dislocation, and war. Even now, I still pray that, when these anguished, disenfranchised, dispossessed Americans rise up, they can still do so through our traditional, peaceful, democratic means: Freedom of speech, the ballot box, and the free market.

But I’m worried. I won’t lie to you. I’m very worried. Being worried, though, doesn’t mean I’m giving in to that despair I warned about at the top of this post. I’m going to do my bit, as best as I can through my writing, to be that happy warrior. As I see it, my job, using my skill, is to help America work it’s way back to a constitutionally-governed, free market, decent and moral nation, rather than a racially-riven, economic basket case, governed by a tech oligarchy beholden to China.

Look to Mossyrock, Washington, if you want to see how this begins:

Now They Are Coming After the Pioneers

By Henry Wickham

EXCERPT:

…If Washington and Jefferson were nothing but slave-owning racists, then why bother with Washington’s Farewell Address or the Declaration of Independence? If Hamilton and Madison didn’t demand and get the immediate abolition of slavery, then why support the Constitution? Why prolong a constitutional republic when Utopia supposedly is within our grasp? Work within the system to destroy the system….

…Lives of American Indians were anything but. (I say American Indians instead of Native Americans because anyone legally born in the United States is a native American, and if the name, American Indian Movement, was good enough for Dennis Means, it is good enough for me.) As Lawrence Keeley demonstrates in his book War Before Civilization, the lives of those Indians were incessantly violent with almost constant intertribal warfare.  This was not war to be fought by the fainthearted, as it was characterized by ambushes, murders, scalping, and the atrocious treatment of prisoners. All this after the horrific initiation ordeals for boys often mandated by the tribe….

…But that was then, and this is now. In little more than a year, the winds of destructive revisionism are now at gale force, and, as a rule, college administrators are a cowardly bunch….

THE CHANUKAH UNDERGROUND

 

 

EXCERPT:

…In 2020, Chanukah came early when another abominable tyrant, fresh from killing 11,000 nursing home residents by forcing facilities to accept infected coronavirus patients, decided to adopt the medieval habit of blaming the virus on Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn. A swarm of inspectors from every department were sent out to schools and then to the hidden schools…..

…And in 21st century America, children huddled in basements, afraid to make a noise, and then, if Cuomo’s men found them, were ready to claim that they weren’t in school, just playing games….
