We’ve been blessed to be able to watch this promise proved before jumping in head first
I have no doubt that Democratic Socialism, when it emerged as the dominant political arrangement in Europe following World War II. It was a slow process, but in 1993 the pact was inked, and now has grown to 28 decreasingly independent states, and 513 decreasingly free people.
They were forewarned.
Modern and urbane, all the Europeans’ socialist plans nevertheless failed, each country at its own pace, to be propped up by introducing hundreds of thousands of immigrants for purposes I’m still not quite sure. All we know is that they can’t let their people, or their domains and return to self-determination.
So now, as predicted, they must begin to consider the darker side of their elusive lover and the role extraordinary cruelty will have to play in holding onto power once all its other now that those schemes have failed. For they will not let go.
There are all sorts of natural laws involved in branding and selling socialism, even if well-intentioned instead of knowing lies.
Is America an accident? A freak of Nature? Or, is America the product of Intelligent Design?
I don’t intend to try to answer the second half of that question here as that requires an inquiry into philosophy and theology. But by the longest list of scientific and common sense proofs, I think I can say without equivocation that America is no accident. We cannot be a freak of Nature. So you can sort of figure out the rest yourself.
This is something we no longer teach our children, but we are unique.
Now, scholars (intellectuals) for the past 200 years have had no problem ignoring this question, for they think it’s a trick question, which does not really require an answer. If they reply that Yes, America is a freak, then the obvious response from the trickster asking the question is: Then why has America survived so long? In nature almost all mutations quickly die out. They can rarely survive into a second generation, much less a third.
And America is into somewhere around its 118th generation of de facto self-governance, while, before the 1787 Constitution, there is no recorded history of a real nation (bigger than a tribe) ever making it past one. (Agreed, also prior to 1787, almost all history was written by “scribes of the kings”, the real name for “historians” for millennia, so there could have been dozens of nascent self-governed peoples who were simply squished, or gobbled up by a next-door invading king, only they were too small and insignificant to rate a page in the “annals of the king” being prepared by his historians.)
In fact, the archaeological record of pre-dynastic Egypt suggests this is how several tribes of farm people in the Nile region slowly morphed into an organized hierarchical “corporation”, with a chairman of the board king, a head priest, and every other person in the realm owing some duty to them. Subjects.
The Egyptians and a few other empires in a region from the eastern Mediterranean to the Indus Valley (India) started this process of “civilization” about 3000 BC, 5000 years ago. And they did many wondrous things, especially building things that for generations for centuries could; i.e. monuments to themselves, which was their purpose.
They didn’t just sort of spring up. Any fifth grader can make a list of all the things necessary for a “civilization” to grow and survive; food, water source, commerce, housing, security, common language…but the fifth grader will likely not know to include the intangibles, such as common purpose, reciprocity, you know a code of conduct with one another which no religion I know of, save one, ever bothered to list. Every nation had a list of “how to get along with the Boss”, but no one that I know ever had a list of “how to get along with your neighbors”…except for a small tribe in central Mesopotamia[…]
Anyone, anywhere, who hears the name “America” already has a first impression about America; either positive or negative. It doesn’t matter if he/she is 18 or 80, and located anywhere in the world.
If abroad those impressions are a mixture of street talk, music, films, and of course, relatives who may have traveled there or live. One man from one village can go to America, and everyone in that valley has a impression of America that no government can conceal.
I knew such a family from Dayton whose father had come to America from a village in Slovakia before WWII, taking work in a steel mill. He left a wife and son back home. Just before the war he went back to bring his wife to America. But he had to leave his 6-year old behind with relatives to secure the family lands. Once in America, Papa and Mama Miluks started a new family, his youngest son my best friend for many years from the Army. In the late 1970s, while on duty in Germany, he was allowed to travel to Slovakia and meet his eldest brother and see the village and old home place, and of course, take gifts. When I visited his family in Dayton Mama Miluks showed me the special place she kept all her letters from her son, who she had not seen since 1940. But those letters! She wrote many-paged reports every week for over 40 years, giving a weekly account of things going on with his papa and brothers and sister, learning quickly to never speak of certain things, for by ’46 the Communists had moved in and her letters were first read and redacted by postal censors, cutting all references to the availability of consumer goods commonly available in America, especially food. Her son, in turn, would reply with heavily redacted letters. He would die in the early 1990’s of the general poor heath common to socialist countries so was never able to join his family. He never met his other two younger brothers or sister. And of course his last personal memory of his parents was when he was 6.
But I am quite sure every adult in that village had clear impressions of America because of Mr Miluks, who went to America.
I tell this story because one, it’s true, and two, it is, next to the Christian’s ideal of Heaven, an impression of America as a place that one has never been and most wants to go, which cannot be duplicated anywhere else. I have met people in several countries and four continents, including Palestinian Arabs (on an overnight sleeper in Russia) and from all I hear basically the same thing, “If only I could go to America.”
(This is not what we are seeing today on our southern border, by the way, so I won’t take this discussion in that direction, although just 30-40 years ago, down there, where I also lived, this was a common refrain, “If I can only get to America.” I deal with this subject in an upcoming conversation about Assimilation, which should be a topic of policy discussion if we can ever get fully in charge or our government again.)
So, abroad, America is viewed through two entirely different prisms, divided by two classes: 1) the political class and 2) all the rest[…]
More than half of the Hispanic voters in the United States approve of President Donald J. Trump. Surprised? Don’t be, add this to the “as not reported by the deep state media complex” pile.
As reported by the Washington Examiner, quoting the stats from a by poll taken McLaughlin & Associates for Newsmax, 47 percent of Hispanics have a positive view President Trump while fifty percent (50%) approve of Trump’s job which includes his handling of the border. One heck of a secret, wouldn’t you say but the facts speak for themselves.
As President Trump doubles down on his pledge to build a southern border wall, Hispanics are showing broad support for him, according to a new survey.
Some 50 percent of Hispanics approve of the president’s job, according to the latest McLaughlin & Associates poll of likely general election voters.
What’s more, the Republican Party has regained its edge over Democrats in the generic congressional ballot.
Pollsters John and Jim McLaughlin suggested that with the end of the Russia collusion probe aiding the president and Republicans, they are poised to come back in the poll and win re-election in 2020[…]
Speaking of which, in spite of efforts by the media, the likes of VH1, BET and TMZ’s brainwashing of stupid American voters, Nancy Pelosi’s favorability rating is in the hole. Voters are not buying what Communists are selling.
— In contrast, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is disliked: 33 percent favorable, 54 percent unfavorable. Two thirds of independent voters, 63 percent, disapprove of the job Speaker Pelosi is doing and so do a quarter, 25 percent, of all Democrats.
Below is President Trump’s rally earlier this year in Florida before a majority Hispanic audience of Venezuelans and Cubans, many of whom legally entered the United States after fleeing their countries under Communist regimes.
From a political fad in 2016, to a trend after the 2018 mid-terms, Infanticide has become a full blown rallying cry for Democrats around blue state America. Our Lady Penguin laid this development bare just a few days ago in her “a murder by any other name is still murder” expose of the new Infanticide law in New York, and the effort by other states, New Mexico, Rhode Island, and Virginia to get on the Execution train even before it’s left the station.
No one can say in prose what every moral human in America must feel about this outrage better than Lady Penguin. So read it.
I’ll only speak to the speed with this band-wagon effect has developed, meaning that the Left has taken full leave of its moral senses (killing babies) without any forthought about what killing babies really means.
If you want a 3-minute mind-picture of just what killing babies is like, I offer this testimony of a now-reformed New York abortion doctor, Dr Lavatino, who describes a second tri-mester abortion in detail. (I know, it’s not how you had it pictured. “Hey, there’s a real person in there, a real breathing baby”…and a doctor has to take that child out piece-by-piece and stack its parts up like cordwood to make sure they got everything. Probably not even most of the foot-stomping “absolute right to do whatever I want with my body” shriekers know that’s how it’s done, or that some clinics now have on-staff nurses whose sole purpose is to muffle the crying sounds of the victim, just so everyone in the room can walk out guilt-free. How medieval.
It’s not just the lies the abortion industry has to tell its victims just to get them into the surgery, but worse, the extraordinary lengths they will go to disguise to themselves, actually self-hypnotize, the barbarism they are committing, even as they commit it.
I’ll guarantee no young pregnant about-to-abort mother has ever pictured her fully-formed 22-week old baby dying this way…for she wouldn’t be there if she did.
Still this reflects an intentional kind of self-delusion that begins with someone else, somewhere else. People behind the curtain. Both the Nazis and Soviets went to great length to pass “those who were about to die’ through several levels of paper-pushing and hand-stamping so that only a handful of men and women would actually come away with blood on their hands. Everyone else had some level of deniability and conscience assuaging available to them[…]
Good grief! Did you tune in to Virginia Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam’s press conference a few moments ago? The short of it was Northam saying that when informed by his staff of the photographs in the yearbook, he owned up to it, made a video and put out a statement owning up to being the man in the image of two guys, one in Blackface and the other dressed as a Klansmen but…..
And that’s when Northam lost everyone except his Virginia neighbors, i.e., the media.
Northam went on to say that he did not see the photographs until “after” he owned up to the photographs and that, in fact, he never purchased a year book but since Northam was on the subject of blackface, in 1984, he dressed up and colored his face to look like Michael Jackson for, I believe it was, a “Halloween party.”
What was that, you ask? Yeah, Coonman in 1984 colored his face and dressed up like Michael Jackson. From thereon, the press conference was nauseating harkening me back to when the media would ask Barack Obama snowball questions like, “Boxers or Briefs, President Obama?”
In the end, Northam who made sure that the whole country, even though he said that he was addressing Virginians, knew (a) he was not stepping down from the governorship; and (b) that he had Black friends. He even offered to do the Moonwalk…the Moonwalk.
Couldn’t resist. Had to throw that in just to bring it all home. How lucky are those who tuned in to Northam’s press conference that he didn’t go there?
You see, most of the reporters who work in Washington, DC, do not live in Washington, DC; they live in Virginia. This should come as no surprise to anyone who understands the left.
On paper, Washington, DC, should be a haven, a Leftist Utopia. After all, D.C. has been exclusively run by Democrats for decades. In fact, since the creation of the Office of the Mayor of Washington, DC, in the early 1970s, only Democrats have held that office. There are no eeeevil Republicans stopping D.C. Democrats from instituting their utopian policies, and yet…
Northam fooled no one and his constituents, i.e., the media ate it up while doing everything possible to cover their governor’s six. THEY FAILED but that will not stop them from delivering a wad of fake news when reporting on the press conference who failed to vet this man.
…But where the hell were the media during the Virginia governor’s race? There are probably over a thousand so-called journalists who reside in Virginia. The far-left Washington Post has an entire section devoted to Virginia. Moreover, not only was Northam running to be the media’s governor, the race itself was a big national story… And no one, not a single member of the media, sought to properly vet Northam, bothered to go back to his college days, bothered to track down a publicly available college yearbook?
Below is a very short clip of Northam’s press conference (which is about as much as anyone can stand):
Northam plans to investigate by use of facial recognition to find out who the men are in the photograph. How does that work? Using facial recognition to identify a man wearing a KKK outfit?
Unfortunately (or not) for Northam and what he fails to realize is that he is the white man that he and his fellow bureaucrats at war with. This is (a) not his season and (b) the discussion that the Democratic Party wants to have right now or through 2020 on the subjects of race and infanticide. Therefore, the calls for Northam to resign will continue unabated.
The left’s message to Ralph Coon Northam, “time’s up, dude.”
Message to the Democratic Party, “thank you for Coonman. Let him stay around, at least through 2021.”
In 2010 I began thinking about what a million-citizen March on Congress might look like, if citizens without gawky hats might actually want to scare the bejeezus out of those people found there. No trash, no foul language, no shooting moons, or pornographic placards…
… just a mean look in our eyes.
And no warning, an idea given to me from an old friend, RoguePolitics, who has now gone onto serious politics.
Wouldn’t that be nice if it weren’t announced? Rogue told us how it could be done, maybe a thousand cars suddenly parked in the road and along the side of the road, at least 10-15 deep stopping all traffic coming into the District. Drivers just park their cars, lock them and then walk to where there will be waiting busses.
The marchers will be picked up by fleets of busses to drive them the those last few miles, off-loading still a half mile away where they can then march on the city, with this music still in their heads,
This isn’t about the logistics, which is doable, by the way. I’m just writing about the kind of face we want to put on, and what sort of music people would need to have their jaws set the proper way, on that last slow drive to the staging area.
Should that million be thinking snappy tunes like “Yankee Doddle” or more sober songs like “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” or a dirge like the Slaves Chorus from “Nabucco”/Song of Liberty, (included below)?
Should people look like they were walking their favorite coon dog out to the woods to put him down because he was old, going blind and could no longer eat[…]
