The innocuous celebrity endorsement behind an ad for Tunnel to Towers, a truly laudatory charity, always irritates me.
Often when I watch Tucker, I see advertisements for a truly worthy charity called the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. According to the commercials, it builds smart homes for horribly wounded military personal. In the commercials, a vet tells his story, then we see his grievous injuries, and then we watch his wonderment as he moves into a smart house that gives him comfort and independence. The advertisement asks that viewers give $11 a month, which is a remarkably reasonable sum for an eminently good cause.
Mark Wahlberg is the celebrity spokesman for Tunnel to Towers. I don’t have a beef with Wahlberg. He’s a devout Catholic who makes pro-American moves but otherwise keeps his mouth shut about politics, which is always a virtue in a celebrity. Moreover, he’s allied himself with a clearly laudatory organization. In each commercial, there’s a moment when he makes the pitch for that $11/month donation.
But did you know that Wahlberg is worth $150,000,000 or, according to another site, $300,000,000? He could cut a check for $75,000,000 tomorrow and still be one of the richest men in America. Why is he begging me for $132 per year? Just write the check, Mark!
(Just FYI, my principles aren’t always in sync with my actions. Since Wahlberg clearly hasn’t cut that $75,000,000 check to Tunnel to Towers, I have donated my mite to the organization.)
So that irks me. But the ones who really stick in my craw are the super-rich celebrity leftists. In no particular order:
Loud-mouth climate change leftist Leonardo DiCaprio is worth $260,000,000.
These people earned their wealth honestly by turning themselves into products that people will pay for. And they’re entitled to their politics (no matter how stupid) because, for the time being at least, America is a free country.
But as a matter of personal decency, I think it’s wrong for any leftist to possess so much money. A leftist who believes that poverty is the root cause of all evil, shouldn’t be hanging onto his or her money. A large proportion of that money should be going to poor people. The climate change-istas should be pooling their wealth so that every person can have a climate efficient home. Instead, they want to tax me. The “crime is a problem of poverty” people need to hand out their money to poor people, instead of taxing me. The open-borders crowd needs to take illegal aliens into their homes or sponsor their every need, instead of taxing me. And so on. You understand what I’m saying.
And please don’t tell me that these celebrities give massive sums of money to charity. I’m sure they do. The problem is that, with their principles, they shouldn’t have tens or hundreds of millions of dollars left over.
At a moral level, these posing leftist celebrities should be merely rich not obscenely rich. And the reason I will acknowledge that they can still keep some wealth without too much hypocrisy is that I know that fame brings legitimate security needs. These anti-gun celebrities need to pay for the armed guards who protect them. Likewise, these anti-border wall celebrities need to pay for the fences and other security systems that keep the hoi polloi away from them.
I would never suggest that the government take money from these celebrities. They earned the money and they’re entitled to do with it as they will, provided it’s legal. But as long as they’re allied with leftism while sitting on hundreds of millions of dollars, I’m sensing some heavy-duty hypocrisy. If they believe in those leftist causes, they need to dig really, really, really deep into their pockets instead of demanding that I pay more taxes or lose my constitutional rights.
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.”
…I think the only thing keeping Trump voters from burning the whole corrupt system down right now is that nobody knows whom or what to attack. That should be a pretty sobering consideration for an establishment class that thinks it just stole the 2020 presidential election fair and square….
…In poker parlance, the D.C. crowd is bluffing that Joe Biden won the 2020 election, and it’s daring the American people to call it out. It’s a dangerous gamble. If these people get away with it, there’s really nothing holding them back from here on out. If they can institute a system where the importance of the voter disappears and the only question is whether battleground state officials are corrupt enough to certify fraudulent election totals, then those darned rubes who value their individual rights cease to matter at all. But if enough Americans call their bluff, well, then the D.C. corruptocrats lose everything….
WTPC CALLS PRESIDENT TO INVOKE MARTIAL LAW FOR NEW ELECTION
…December 4, 2020 ….
…guide us in truth and help us to be a nation that seeks justice. Give our government officials Your wisdom as they make these important decisions.
Today, Tom Zawistowski, President of the TEA Party affiliated We the People Convention (WTPC) and Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party, published a full page ad in the Washington Times newspaper demanding that President Trump Invoke limited Martial law in order to allow the U.S. Military to oversee a new free and fair federal election if Legislators, Courts and the Congress do not follow the Constitution.
Zawistowski said, “We wanted to express our concerns to the President, to the legislators, courts and Congress that We the People will NOT cede our exclusive Constitutional right to elect our Representatives to judges, lawyers, courts, Governors, Secretary’s of State, Congress, corrupt election officials and local politicians, the corrupt media – or Leftist threats of violence! It is OUR EXCLUSIVE RIGHT to elect our President and that sacred right has been infringed by the massive, planned, illegal election fraud conducted by corrupt Democrat/Socialist Party operatives across our nation to steal our vote. We will NOT stand for it.”
The Ad compares the Extraordinary Executive actions implemented by President Abraham Lincoln in his efforts to save the Union during the Civil War and the literal civil war that is dividing our nation today. Without full confidence that our courts or Congress will indeed follow the 12th Amendment of the Constitution and defend our electoral process, the ad calls upon President Trump, like Lincoln, to exercise the Extraordinary Powers of his office and declare limited Martial Law to temporarily suspend the Constitution and civilian control of these federal elections in order to have the military implement a national re-vote that reflects the true will of the people. Federal candidates only. Paper ballots. No computers. Hand-counted with both parties watching every vote. Only registered voters. Photo ID to prove residence. . . .
Editor’s Note: Read below to see the entirety of the Ad:
Exercising Extraordinary Authority in Defense of Our Vote May be Required because Martial Law is better than Civil War!
In the months following the start of the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln struggled to preserve the Union. Many objected to Lincoln’s extraordinary use of Presidential authority, in particular his suspension of the right of “Habeas Corpus”. On June 12, 1863 Lincoln defended his extreme measures in a letter published in the New York Times. Citing Article I of the Constitution he argued: “Ours is a case of rebellion…in fact, a clear, flagrant, and gigantic case of rebellion; and the provision of the Constitution that ‘the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when, in cases of rebellion or invasion, the public safety may require it’, is the provision which specifically applies to our present case.” Lincoln used the same reasoning in justifying a series of extraordinary Presidential Orders:
Lincoln ordered hundreds of Northern newspapers that spoke against him to be shut down and their owners and editors arrested.
Lincoln ordered the arrest of Ohio Congressman Clement Vallandigham for the crime of speaking out against him.
Chief Justice of the US Roger Taney ruled that Lincoln had violated the US Constitution when he illegally suspended the Writ of Habeas Corpus. After hearing this Lincoln signed an arrest warrant to have the Chief Justice of the U.S. arrested.
Lincoln ordered the arrest of thousands in Maryland for the crime of “suspected Southern sympathies” including ordering the arrest of US Congressman Henry May from Maryland. These people were arrested and held in military prisons, without trial, some of them for years.
While some debate these measures still today, no one disagrees that Lincoln and his use of Presidential power were responsible for saving the Republic. While History, and even former President Obama, has judged Lincoln as perhaps our greatest President, few would have agreed at the time he took those actions. Then, as now, a President with courage and determination was needed to preserve the Union. Today, the current threat to our United States by the international and domestic socialist/communist left is much more serious than anything Lincoln or our nation has faced in its history – including the civil war.
We have well-funded, armed and trained marxists in ANTIFA and BLM strategically positioned in our major cities acting openly with violence to silence opposition to their anti-American agenda. Attacking federal buildings and police, cowardly punching innocent people in the back of the head, assaulting people just eating in restaurants, and burning minority-owned businesses to the ground. All with elected officials in Democrat/Socialist-controlled cities openly encouraging this planned violence against civilians and businesses. Then, to advance their cause, these socialists are acting to “Defund the Police,” creating chaos and suspending the rule of law that protects millions of average, and particularly minority, Americans. The results being massive increases in violent crime and deaths in our cities and the destruction of small businesses orchestrated by those politicians and leftist groups, many funded by domestic and international communists. We are literally under attack from within!
Then there are admitted Democrat/Socialist federal officials plotting to finish gutting the US Constitution after 100 years of trying. They promise to take away critical individual rights like free speech, religious freedom and the 2nd Amendment; destroy states rights by eliminating the electoral college and more; pack the Supreme Court with activist anti-constitutionalist judges who will make law from the bench; give the right to vote to tens of millions of non-Americans; and open our borders to more illegals which will reduce wages. No one voted for these things that were hidden from the majority of Americans by the corrupt media. Not only do we have corrupt media, like in Lincoln’s day, we have a new and more sinister form of media in Big Tech, actively censoring free speech and promoting leftist propaganda to blind our citizens to their real goals and the real consequences of their actions – the end of America as we have known it.
The Socialist Left has been openly working to destroy the United States since Obama promised and tried to “transform” America in 2008-16, and having been stopped by the will of the American people, they openly staged a four year long coup attempt to remove the duly elected President. Culminating in this corrupt and provably fraudulent current election planned to illegally and un-constitutionally deny the American people their most sacred honor, right and privilege – which is the right to elect their Representatives! How can we have a Representative Republic if we cannot hold fair elections to elect our Representatives? There is no doubt that this attempted stealing of these elections again “is a case of rebellion…in fact, a clear, flagrant, and gigantic case of rebellion” that requires exercising extraordinary authority to preserve our Union.
President Trump, you and every other official in our local, state and federal governments, and everyone in law enforcement and in our military have sworn an oath that says “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” It is time for everyone who swore that oath to act upon it. The enemies are within our gates and our Constitution and Nation are in real risk of being lost to this socialist/communist invasion unless you act decisively.
At least half of all Americans do not and will not accept this fraudulent election because of the eyewitness testimony, and the material, statistical and mathematical evidence of OVERWHELMING fraud. The other half will not accept the outcome if the courts see the evidence of fraud and rightfully overturn the election! The Left has literally been planning riots just for that occasion for months. We the People must not and WILL NOT cede our exclusive Constitutional right to elect our Representatives to judges, lawyers, courts, Governors, Secretary’s of State, Congress, corrupt election officials and local politicians, the corrupt media – or Leftist threats of violence! It is OUR EXCLUSIVE RIGHT to decide our Representatives not theirs! Therefore, We the People MUST demand a NEW and fair national vote, a vote that all Americans can trust and live by regardless of the winner! Without a fair vote, we fear, with good reason, the threat of a shooting civil war is imminent. Gun sales are at an all time high and 40% are first time gun owners looking to defend themselves, their property, and their rights. Therefore, Mr. President you must act now before there is no peaceful way left to preserve our Union.
When the legislators, courts and/or Congress fail to do their duty under the 12th Amendment, you must be ready Mr. President to immediately declare a limited form of Martial Law, and temporarily suspend the Constitution and civilian control of these federal elections, for the sole purpose of having the military oversee a national re-vote. A vote that assures a fair election in every jurisdiction and reflects the true will of the people. Federal candidates only. Paper ballots. No computers. Hand-counted with both parties watching every vote. Only registered voters. Photo ID to prove residence. Conducted safely with everyone wearing masks and six feet apart, just like we did in Ohio. Only then can the winning candidate be accepted as legitimate by a true majority of We the People who must give our consent to be justly governed! Unfortunately we are at a point where we can only trust our military to do this because our corrupt political class and courts have proven their inability to act fairly and within the law.
You must also act, like Lincoln did, to silence the destructive media’s one-sided propaganda designed and proven to influence the election outcome, and end the unlawful censorship of Big Tech, to restore the confidence of the American People in our electoral process or we cannot continue as a nation. Failure to do so could result in massive violence and destruction on a level not seen since the Civil War. Limited Martial Law is clearly a better option than Civil War!
Many will object to these actions, as they did in Lincoln’s day, but we assure you that We the People understand that no less action will suffice to prevent the loss of our Constitutional right to vote and preserve our Republic. It is time to honor your oath, Mr. President. It is time for you to boldly act to save our nation as Lincoln did. We the People will support a national re-vote. We will also have no other choice but to take matters into our own hands, and defend our rights on our own, if you do not act within your powers to defend us.
That term would be a useless, fictitious, Hollywood-scripted, bullshit way to behave. A made-up NON-reality. Make-believe. A unicorn fart invented by some probable democrat writer.
You know: a fake “reality.” A Manipulation?”
Like in that movie?
YOU may have a preconceived idea what “Presidential” looks like. If you do, it’s because the image was placed in your brain the same way I added the above photo: by using Media to attract you in.
The human mind is susceptible to media.
They figured that one out selling War Bonds,” in 1917, on the radio. Then it was proven after WWII, on the teevee machine, when they realized women now controlled the purse strings. Daddy became a stupid bumbler, and mommy became an all-wise technician.
Because She had the money. She spent the money. She could make or break a TV show. And, concomitantly, its writers, principals, and staff.
I lived through those eras of Radio, TV, and Movies. I remember. I can tell you, that’s how it was. A Manipulation.
It’s why they need to kill off the old folks. Because we remember. We know the truth.
Kids, I don’t give a fuck, HOW Trump “looks,” what he says or does.
Whether he’s Presidential (like fucking Obama), or whatever.
I only care what Trump actually DOES.
Not what he says.
After all—who among us—you and I—is “Presidential?”
