The Old Country

A long, long time ago, as rumor has it, there was a great country between the Pacific and Atlantic called the United States of America. It was a proud country in good and bad times.

It was fiercely independent. Many thought there was something about her that rose above other countries. Some thought that more myth and legend but many believed it. Was it more perception of the residents than reality? We aren’t sure though that can be studied.

And indeed this country became a great force among other countries. She tried to help the others in their times of need. She sailed around the world ending 2 world wars and batting down various other conflicts. Real peace eluded her for years.

Her men and women were of strong stock working to build a strong country. And strong it was. They had a certain determination. They had mostly good intentions among them, even in desperate times. In fact, in the worst of times they seemed to rise above petty to pull their resources to solve any crisis. There was a “we are one” mentality.

She, America, was the go to source for markets around the world. She was the ultimate trading partner. When others in the world bought her goods, which carried a great reputation, people were glad to buy them. And it bought plenty from others. The label “Made in USA” meant something throughout the world.

She was a place people around the globe flocked to or aspired to go. There was no other place like it. One of its great presidents referred to America as a “shining city on a hill.” Debates often went back and forth over extending or retracting her interests verses isolationism. Those ideas are still out there in books for consumption. But they sure were passionate about their ideas. They valued their ideas almost as much as the country.

Indeed, they sort of had a reverence for the past though it was not perfect. Yet because they worked through those imperfections that made her even better. And it was hard work. They had a great Civil War in the 1800’s. They united afterward as even a better country, despite differing opinions. They had high appreciation for its relatively short history as a nation.

Through thick and thin there was no better place to be.

The consensus always was instinctively to resist foreign entanglements, but as decades went on resistance grew weaker. They did entangle the country in far regions around the world. It was rationalized as the better choice. Still, they were leery of Global powers of consolidation that opposed their spirit of individualism and freedom.

One of its later presidents called those powers a New World Order.

In time, even that weaker resistance softened. Until it got to a point where some of its leaders were so enamored by this Globalism that they began doing things and scheming to get deeper involved in Globalism. The theory went that enough actions would be irreversible and that, once done, people would grow accustomed making it virtually impossible to undo. Each layer of Globalist policies added more bonds on the people. Even fierce dissenters would not be capable of mustering the resolve to undo it all. So that is the way it went.

Then She had many culture battles domestically, which strained the nation’s unity. It was called a culture war. They bickered back and forth about these cultural issues. Some saw these as bigger than the country itself, while others ignored them entirely. The date always seemed significant. They would say things like, “ it’s the 1970’s.” Or insert any other year up until the 2-M’s. The year was used as a symbol for modernity itself. Similarly, they mocked the past with euphemisms like “ancient” or “dark ages.” In that way, they thought of themselves currently as better, more knowledgeable and improving as time went on. New became old and the cycle continued. Everything in the past was perceived as “old.”

It was almost as if they could not get enough of new, anything new. For some people, change could not seem to happen fast enough. There were those who sat around trying to think up the next new thing that would catch the public’s appetite for change. They were not Nostradamus figures, but commoners trying to ride the fast-moving wave of modernity. Usually, efforts were in vaine. Fads and trends were moving fast enough without that intentional help. There was an education reformer back in the late 1800’s who said “change, if done correctly, can hardly be noticed.” However, the objective of this change was not to be unnoticed but to be obvious to everyone. The more shocking or outrageous the better. In fact that was the purpose.. They wanted change to be highly visible and unavoidable.

Well, you can probably see where all this is headed but the country enjoyed some very good years. It was blessed for many years. That is until this need for change and the will of the people were so compromised that the inevitable was certainly inevitable for them. By then, there was a margin of people who weren’t interested in keeping the country as it had been, but looking for a severely different state. They had no pride in what was or is, only in how far they could jettison it. Therein was the problem. Their preference was radical change.

Well, it should have been clear in tell tale signs over years. Sometimes people openly state even their worst intentions. During later elections, campaigns were filled with words about change. One new term grew in popularity, transformation. Most people didn’t know what it meant, at least as defined by those soldiers of change using it.

Then came another term, re-imagine. They claimed they wanted to re-imagine government, re-imagine the economic system. Re-imagine everything. The irony is that with all this re-imaging, they could not have imagined a better country than they had. But their toxic, creative imaginations could not be quenched and leave the once-great country in place.

I see it is getting late, so maybe we’ll read more about this Old Glory another time. It is an interesting story anyway. Sort of mysterious why there are not more books about it?

Ode To Charlie Daniels

Here is sort of a tribute to Charlie Daniels by Charlie Daniels, in an interview with Pastor Allen Jackson. He did a bunch of interviews out there but I think this is one of his best.

So this is a smattering of Charlie.

“Never Look At The Empty Seats” by Charlie Daniels.

 

But there is an interesting thing. A few weeks before he passed, he wrote a piece on his Soap Box with a timely message on the state of things in our country. Here is a primer and the link. Check this one out. Now it seems even more pertinent.

Pick a Side

Posted on 06.26.2020 by Charlie Daniels

The time is swiftly coming in America when everybody who cares about having a future is going to have to pick a side.

When you get past the very thin patina of “peaceful” protest and look beyond the fallacy that violence and destruction brings about racial equality, you have to come to the conclusion that there is a radical fringe of people who would literally burn this country down, given the opportunity.

You’ll never hear it in the media, but if you’re willing to scratch the surface and dig a little bit, it will dawn on you that this is not a simple protest against the unjust killing of a black man, but a revolutionary street battle against America and everything we stand for and it IS funded and lead by socialist factions, and it’s not just in the US but in many democratic nations around the world.

In other words, an all-out socialist attack on our Republic.

I don’t remember a time in my 83 years when the cowardice, incompetence, indifference and downright impotence of governors, mayors and others responsible for the protection of citizens and their property have been more evident, disappointing and disgusting.

What’s going on in our nation is not a “Block Party” or a “Summer Of Love”…../
Read more> Soap Box

At the time, I thought he had put it all in perfect terms. Time to pick a side.

Well, the country is going to miss you, Charlie. Heaven must have called you home because you wouldn’t have left it any other way. RIP

Cancelled Then Or Now?

One pf the most famous post-founding speeches, delivered on a battlefield by Abraham Lincoln, declared the world will not long remember “what we say here,” but it “can never forget what they did here.”

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”Gettysburg Address, 1863.

Wait a minute there, are you telling me that was all a big lie and, at least until recently contested by Black Lives Mater anyway, is still a lie?

Again, I ask, I just wonder when and at what cause would the Left be proud of America? It’s a really simple question. What would it take, since they are not currently proud of America?

Price or cost of that anyone?

Lincoln went on to highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

A new birth of freedom? But Leftists have criticized even the motivation for our country. Why would they believe Lincoln? That’s just more rhetoric propaganda to them.

How much different that speech would have been if it were a concession speech on a Confederate victory: “Sorry, boys, it was all in vain but I can assure you we tried.” But no, Lincoln referred to the birth of the country and this “new birth” – as a further consecration of that original dedication and purpose.

Now then, about this current state of our cultural affairs
.

Oh, Lincoln waited for Black Lives Matter to come along to call him out by correcting it all. He knew they would. Of course Lincoln was wrong and just did not do it the right way. The poor soldiers who fought the war, then, were highly misguided of the entire purpose.

So what do we have some 150 years later? The BLM movement. It has attracted a crowd of attention. People have allied with it and their perception. Just call them “the minders”.

Now what I see on the streets is a whole lot of people who signed on to BLM and have made a choice for which there is no recovery. Without hesitation, they’ve all gone lockstep with something that many probably don’t even understand. Mob rule is not pretty. They would rather have that than even democracy.

They have lent themselves to a revolution to rip this country apart. And they are about to reap the fruits of it. On one hand, the BLM dismisses what was done in the Civil War, while calling forth their own counter-revolution to undo the first revolution. Without giving much thought to the consequences of their action. On the other hand, they misinterpret the original conception of the country.

But Lincoln should have clarified that, to anyone hearing or reading it, both the intent of this nation and the civil war itself. One would think.

“Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war.”

What he admitted there is that this was a test for the survival of that consecration. It was bloody. Now 150 years later, Leftists and the BLM are ripping away at it, asking if we can endure their mobocracy of disdain for it? Or will it too be cancelled in the end?

But then I think Lincoln knew something about the Cancel Culture.

Enemy Within, Game On

Ilhan Omar Calls for the Dismantling of the US economy, political system.

William Davis | July o7, 2020  Daily Caller

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar called for the “dismantling” of the U.S. economy and political system Tuesday.

“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality,” Omar said. “We cannot stop at criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

Omar held an event Tuesday in her home state of Minnesota with members of the Minnesota People of Color and Indigenous Caucus. Omar tweeted earlier Tuesday that the purpose of the event was to address “racism in policing” in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death..

Omar has joined calls from local Democratic leaders to defund the police after four Minneapolis police officers were fired and charged in connection to Floyd’s death. The Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted to get rid of the city’s police department in June.

More> https://dailycaller.com/2020/07/07/ilhan-omar-calls-for-the-dismantling-of-us-economy-political-system/

First it was abolish ICE, then it was abolish police, Then it was the economy, get rid of it. Okay, so let’s just dismantle the whole US system? So she is making it completely obvious, she is against our entire system.

Come here as a refugee from Somalia, and then proceed to tell us our entire system is oppressive — after becoming a US Congressperson — and needs to be torn down.

 

For your reading pleasure, here is what Trump said about her just 2 weeks ago:

Washington Examiner

“Ilhan Omar is going to be very much involved in a Biden government. They will put this hate-filled, America-bashing socialist front and center in deciding the fate of your family and deciding the fate of your country. I don’t think so.”

“She would like to make the government of our country just like the country from where she came. Somalia.”

“No government, no safety, no police. No nothing. Just anarchy. And now, she’s telling us how to run our country. No, thank you,” Trump said.

Oops, right again! Yet he was roundly attacked for what he said. Give me a break!

Made In America

I guess it has become very clear but just to simplify it:

Democrats don’t want made in America

They want to have America remade.

But today America lost one of its legends. Charlie Daniels is gone after decades of music.

A true patriot and hero to many. This one is in memory of Charlie Daniels.

Well done, sir. RIP

Securing Liberty

…”That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” — DOI

That one beautiful sentence of the Declaration of Independence best encompasses the ideal purpose for our government. It explains the philosophy of the Republic.

But the scariiest thought, then, is what secures that government? Anyone riddle me that.

On this 4th of July, at the Mount Rushmore celebration with President Trump, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem’s speech contained two words which stood out. Together she used the words “freedom and law.” I know it is three but using those two words combined seemed odd and I don’t remember anyone using them together just that way.

The point is we need both or we have anarchy. Much as we love freedom, we also need law. Government’s very purpose is to secure our rights, or liberty. She didn’t say that, I did.

Our laws are bound by way of the Constitution. Our Constitution is the supreme law of of the land. It sets our government but what actually anchors government is the people — “the consent of the governed.” That is where government “derives” its powers.

Next-Best Thing Nation

Have we become a nation of second-best or even third-best? I mean that in the wider literal sense. Let me show you how that could be.

But maybe much of it goes back to branding and marketing terminology? Brands are always important to proprietary companies. It is great for a company to say it is the only, best or number one in an area. It leaves others to measure up to the brand’s expertise. And often competitors cannot quite get there. They may come close. Sometimes there is no substitute and that matters. They call it the secret sauce for a reason, it is secret.

So diehard competitors look for ways to entice or seduce the consumer. Convenient packaging, pricing, whatever would help lure the consumer to their alternative. We see knockoffs of every major product. But consumers can be fickle and sometimes loyal to brands. That is until something happens to destroy that loyalty and credibility.

However, those would be things alternative competitors are not too worried about. Brand loyalty is a problem to them, not something coveted. Sometimes competitors can excel at what they do because, after all, they are merely trying to undermine or detract from the real branded product. A competitor’s mission is different than the brand master’s. And competitors can become good at chipping away at that brand loyalty. Stay with me.

A nation may work the same way. It can have and affect it’s own brand by whatever it does. A country is not always unique and must try to use its positives to its advantage. It may also have competitors trying to undermine a nation’s loyalty, thereby giving a challenger an edge. You can see the glaring similarities.

Though one goal is to eventually get the consumer to say “what difference does it make anyway which brand I choose, if both are about same thing?” Then it is up to brand masters to ask if it really is the same thing? Or to point out the difference.

The problem with an analogy is when you take it too far. No need to do that for this purpose. Now let’s look at the country’s side of the analogy.

We have a country with a great brand from the beginning, being what none of its competitors could be. Yet chipping away the loyalty works the same way. At some point, you have to defend your superior brand, if you really believe in it. From an opponent’s perspective, anything they can do to undermine a country’s belief in itself is critical to their objective. That weakens a nation’s defense. Now apply that opponents’ strategy on a nonstop basis and you have a problem. Eventually, dissent can rise from within.

In marketing terms, this is where the consumer abandons a name brand and starts to look for alternatives. Any brand loyalty is defeated.

The problem then is when the consumer no longer trusts the brand or believes there is a difference between others. Or if the consumer no longer cares one wit about a brand’s superiority. It is similar to a country losing its uniqueness. The worst thing that can happen to some major companies is losing its brand in any way. A country has the same threat. When it stops being its unique self, there is no difference between its opponents. Though there are bigger consequences when a country goes downhill.

I said all that to ask if, in this country, our brand is being weakened to the point many don’t care anymore about its superiority — much less in defending our brand? We hope not but signs are already there and visible to even the dumbest enemy. When we lose as a country is when we start to consider ourselves second best or third-best. If we are not willing to uphold that superiority and defend it, then we are resigning to second-best status. All it can take is turning our will from brand superiority into being a next-best country. At that point it becomes a self-fulfilled prophecy.

Now factor into this analogy equation that we are being told our system needs changing. We should be more like our second and third-best competitors. We need an overhaul. The disenchanted within try to supplant another system in place of the original. Sure, everyone knows they are doing it. But what does it take to switch people over to the new brand? Well, it is already in the works, too. Cleverly they are bribing people like consumers with enticements, and promises. They have already undermined the brand. So what could brand masters do; how could they compete with that sales pitch?

In reality, those are just pipe dreams anyway because the competitors can’t deliver on them. But they don’t have to worry about that and don’t have to deliver, only get you to switch. Because once you do, the gate closes behind you and you cannot return to the superior brand even if you wanted. They have made that impossible, or soon will.

So the people accepted the next-best-thing country and have no options. It worked the same way with Obamacare. You find out you are screwed or don’t like the alternative and want to undo it, only to find out you can’t. Throw in a Supreme Snob saying “not so fast.” It becomes a done deal and hard to return to normal because normal has changed. Then you start to question if there ever was a normal before, or was that an illusion?

It’s very seductive but instead of leading you down the road of more options, it leads to less options as it goes. Next, you have lost your ability to choose at all. Yet it was all done and framed as a choice from the onset. Even dubbed a great choice. Sorry, no return policy.

So then how do you like your new next-best thing of a nation? Besides, it is really hard to get passionate about defending that second-best country, especially when it really isn’t even the next best thing. Sometimes brand really matters.

That Thing

“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” ….. ah, uh. ah.

Oh, you know that thing…. the thing we always say. That thing, you know.

That thing is the Declaration of Independence.

Happy Fourth Of July – Independence Day.

Just think: if the Declaration were a statue, it would already be torn down.

And that’s the way it is.

 

“Star Spangled Banner As You’ve Never Heard It”

A story of how our national anthem came to be.

I was asked by someone to put a video together for this audio and upload it, so here it is. I was never expecting it to get so many views.

Yes I’m aware some info is sketchy and wording isn’t exactly right. Please stop sending complaints. Like I said before, I’m doing a favor for someone here. You can look up the accurate story if want the precise info.

Here’s a link to one of many sources for info on the true story: https://tinyurl.com/yb6laets

Hope you enjoy the message of this video though. God Bless America

P.S: Really sorry about the typos in the anthem

Stealing America

Wake uo America, people are trying to steal your country out from under your feet. It requires brutal warning. But I don’t know if we’re all getting the message?

So while you are sitting on your couch, planning your next barbecue or doing repairs around the house, these people are out on the streets physically doing their best to steal this country. Never mind what plans they have for it. They are holding parts of it hostage against your will, using radical means or any means necessary. If they cannot pry it from its mooring they will bring it down around you. Then probably blame you for it,too.

But they are already part way there.

I can honestly admit I am not a certified source or expert on the subjects. I don’t claim to be. But I have closely followed what the Left has been doing for about 25 years, seeing myself the lies, the parsing, the bullshit denials they traffic in.

This is an insurgency, a seditious movement hell bent on taking the country over. I know, alarmists have said that for years. Yada yada yada. Don’t underestimate it based on those repetitious cries over decades. Some of those alsrmists had good intentions, though somewhat premature. They were not pushing conspiracy theories.

Now is for real. The enemy has their teeth sunk in to such an extent that it is bound to leave extensive permanent damage. Of course that is not only me but plenty of people saying it. However, I understand people are jaded and rhetoric-weary.

I developed a bias, too. I see people who are not alarmed about it because they’ve seen some unrest before, like many politicians, and just think protests and chaos will run their course in time. Many feel it all fades off.

But I got news for them, this is not all fading away any time soon, maybe never. They’ve gotten this far and they aren’t going to let go now. They are entrenched and see foundation weakness or cracks – even if we choose not to see them.

Once again, I’ll provide a couple separate examples — old and present, both true.

A few years ago a career police officer in the greater Seattle area wrote a column. He was also a lifelong Christian and very active member in the same local church for years. He brought his family up there. But he felt change getting worse in the community.

The hatred against cops had gotten so bad, plus the church was standing up with radicals, that he had to make a tough decision. First he took his concerns to the church leaders. It fell on deaf ears. So he had no choice but to resign from committees and remove his family from the church. It was no longer safe for him or his family. It hurt deeply. Now what we see with hatred of cops is nothing new. It has only gotten worse.

The second is on the east cost, last week. A police department decided to have a small, local support rally for officers and the department in view of the stressful times in a pandemic. It could also build community ties while having this “back the blue” type event.

BLM heard and immediately organized a large rally putting out the word for a protest. So police didn’t want any trouble and decided to cancel their event. But BLM showed up anyway and were mad because the police cancelled their event. BLM’s leader gave a list of grievances including canceling for fear of violence. They were offended demanding an apology and wanted police to show support for Black Lives Matters. Then sent it to City Hall. They demanded a response and statement of agreement with BLM.

There is no choice except agreeing with BLM. They demand you support them. If you don’t, they will attack anyone to force that pledge of support. This is devious and dangerous. The message is no one is allowed to even voice support for police. (local or otherwise) You get attacked for supporting the community structure.

We know the locally elected leaders don’t help any. In fact, they often cave to BLM which encourages more hostage taking. It empowers them.

One more, if you need a third. A mainline evangelical church has already sent out a few newsletters vowing their unity, support and solidarity with the BLM movement – aka standing up for equality against systemic racism. A lot of buzz words there, no?

That brings it full circle. Years back with the cop near Seattle, people said that is the radical Northwest. Some suggested he move his family, as it was too politically radical. But I said it was not just there. Some didn’t believe that. What was normal there is now becoming common everywhere. It didn’t take long. Look which side the momentum is on.

I am still discouraged by a lack of public concern about it. People see it more as a passing fad that will eventually fade. (like the occupy movement did?) But old Leftists never fade away, they just regroup and come back another day.

Now I am wondering if people are finally getting it? Do they take it seriously? Are they prepared to choose which side they are on? Because we already see others throwing in with the radicals like BLM, even if they don’t know what they are doing.

Me, I cannot ever side with cultural Marxism or pledge to support that. I don’t believe it is a Godly or just cause either. Does anyone think supporting them could have any influence on them? At the same time many churches refuse to show support for pro-life, yet they jump on-board with BLM. So I think it is time to steel America before it is stolen.

Anarchy Destiny

I really do hate saying this but I know how America looks to the rest of the world: like a bunch of spoiled brats, sick to the rotten core, fighting over who will get their way.

Anyone who assumed the right kind of sanity would appear and save the day must be awfully disappointed, while they are sitting there waiting with their popcorn in hand.

I’m not saying we are but sure enough that is what it looks like. And there is good reason for that. A big part of all that is going on is not to convince us of anything, it is to break the spirit and will of America. In other words, the America we all know. That perception cannot be allowed to exist. No one can be proud of it and we should have to give in to forces with the loudest mouths screaming in the streets. That is supposed to be the outcome.

But how do you avoid that? Well, there is a tough question conjuring up all kinds of answers and none of them are appealing. Just the perception of America as a shinning city on a hill is not enough to deter these miscreants from their destiny schemes. Knowing they are outnumbered is not enough. Anarchy alone is not what makes it this evil, a lot of people contributed to it to make it that evil.

If you want another chilling thought to compliment the last, these people in the streets are not just trying to tear down society and revise history. No, they want to re-fight the civil war because they don’t like the way the last one turned out. They don’t just want to distort reality, they want to destroy it. In fact, they don’t like the founding much either.

Actually, there is nothing about this America they do like. Now their biggest problem is with those of us who do. They think they got nothing to lose. But this is what terrorists do.

Romney threw in with this bunch, why am I not surprised? (the face of a spoiled brat)

“We need to end violence and brutality, and to make sure that people understand that black lives matter.”- Mitt Romney the bitter-ender.

BLM Ties To Terrorism

Black Lives Matter fundraising handled by group with convicted terrorist on its board

by Jerry Dunleavy, Justice Department Reporter |  Washington Examiner
June 25, 2020

The co-founder of Black Lives Matter names a convicted cop killer as one of her heroes, and the BLM national organization is fiscally sponsored through a leftist group whose board of directors includes a convicted terrorist.

Alicia Garza, one of three co-founders of the Black Lives Matter national organization, has repeatedly talked about how convicted cop killer and wanted domestic terrorist Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, is one of her main inspirations. Susan Rosenberg, a member of the board of directors for the left-wing Thousand Currents group, which handles the intake of donations made to Black Lives Matter, is a convicted terrorist who, among other things, was suspected of helping Shakur escape from prison. …/

Victory Lead

 

Victory Lead The Way

The season of treason is upon us
A lark song away from defiled beauty.
Wrestling our country will be their claim
Heaping toxins of poison around us.

Victory lead the way and blaze our path
Keep us from the enemy’s wrath.

Pray the time is near so have no fear,
To snare the beasts beneath the streets
As they traffic in deep-seeded plans
From Miami to Maine, Columbia to San Fran.

Have no doubt their interdiction is at hand
Cover them in righteous shame
For all the damage they’ve done.
Leave them no hollow from where to hide
May all their efforts be wasted in pride.
No Quarter no none.

Victory lead the way and blaze our path
Keep us from the enemy’s wrath.

Fear no evil for Thou art with you
Sons, daughters, patriotism’s heroes,
All will stand and all must survive.
A windfall is in the foggy air.

Crisp is the Word that falls on friendly shores.
In the worst of times are the greatest stakes.
Now protect our watch as we go our way,
Shine Your light that we may see our foes.
Saints guide the way and brave head the call,
For we must not fail or fall.

Victory lead us away and blaze our path
Keep us from the enemy’s wrath.

What Will You Kneel To?

Well, after 4-5 years in the making, has it all come down to this kneeling thing? There sure is an obsession about it. I can’t resist stating but kneeling for all the wrong reasons.

It started with Colin Kaepernick, when we all watched the protest symbol of decades become taking a knee to the national anthem. It was poo-pooed as a real issue but then respected by some as a form of protest. And protest it was but against cops, America or most everything about it.

It made Kaepernick famous for all the wrong reasons. It pretty well outed him as the radical he was. And those socks didn’t help any.

So we went through this cosmic kabuki dance where we decided we didn’t need that celebrated for the political opinion that it is. Sure we could have respected his right to his own views and speech, but this was football and his job, not his own youtube video.

But then, like everything the left does, they have to keep on pushing it. Why is it just because he is in perpetual protest I should have to agree with him? I shouldn’t and that is the point. After all, I have my free speech too. That freedom becomes a problem.

That all seems to go upside down now.

Black Lives Matter came along and we knew what they were about. It was a radical outfit with views that did not represent all Americans. BLM chased people off the stage and screamed over people, interfering with their free speech for not repeating those words and endorsing BLM’s views. Even Bernie was targeted.

They claimed they were not a political group or party. They were called non-political. Now we know them for the highly political group they are. We argued, then, that they were a radical shill for Democrats. They denied it.

Since Kaepernick started off his protest by kneeling, what better thing to do than have everyone kneeling to BLM and a movement of radicals? Now of course, anyone who does not is shunned and branded a racist. How many people bowed down to Black Lives Matter? Do they know what they’re doing?

If you didn’t understand it before, everyone should now. It is a complete turn around. Company’s grovel at BLM’s feet sending them cash. For what we don’t even know? They can all pretend BLM has no political agenda. They can even pretend what this is about.

Where did BLM go to reform itself and change its radical ways? It didn’t, it didn’t have to. Seems everyone came to them. It’s now mainstream and everyone is cool with it. What changed was the people. They have accepted these political pariahs and misfits as the cats meow they are not. And everything is supposed to be perfectly fine with this picture?

Remember Tea Parties were shunned and branded extremists. The BLM who are extremists and radicals are mainstreamed. Welcome to Crazy Town. The population is growing fast but be quiet about your normal views or we’ll ask you to leave. Common sense will not be tolerated. Thinking for yourself is not allowed.

So they’ve made taking a knee normal and the proper thing to do. But it is also kneeling to an organization with Marxist roots and no allegiance to this country, or freedom.

It has an entirely anti-American agenda and political platform. It is a radical organization run by the same It doesn’t respect our process or accept our economic system. It wants to change all of it. Venezuela and Cuba are its models. They are hardliner Soviet-style Bolshevik revolutionaries in the style of Socialists, Maoists and communists. There is no room for freedom loving nationalists, in their view.

Take a knee to that, and them, I don’t think so.

Then again, in all of it kneeling for the wrong reasons. It isn’t even in protest anymore, It is kneeling in submission to a Marxist political movement. Since when do we do that? While we could be on our knees to God asking for help to oppose and resist this humanism plot.

First it was sit down and shut up, and now it is kneel down and submit.
Just curious what oath our elected officials swore to? And what do they kneel to?

Somewhere in the back of it all, Freedom Still Matters.

Mayor Jenny Durkan’s Word Salad

The dingbat Mayor Jenny Durkan, on planet Seattle, had an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on June 11th. Here is how it went. My comments below.

Chris Cuomo: “How long do you think Seattle and those few blocks look like this?”

Mayor Jenny Durkan: “I don’t know. We could have the summer of love.”

Cuomo: “Tell that to the police who are supposed to be in that precinct though. But I understand your sentiment mayor. I wish you well. We’ll stay on this story. You’ll always have this platform to talk about it.” [yada yada, nothing to see here]

Durkan: “Hey Chris. The police will be policing in there. I want to be very clear on that. Our chief of police was in there assessing today. We take public safety very seriously. We met with businesses and residents today. We don’t have to sacrifice public safety for First Amendment rights. Both can exist and we’ll make sure that both exist in Seattle.”

 
Here’s how an interview with Jenny should have gone:

Now wait a minute there, Mayor Dingy. Summer of Love is one thing but you also said you take public safety very seriously and that cops would be policing. It was designed as a cop-free zone — or didn’t you read the pamphlet?

It was their whole purpose to keep cops out and you moved them out of the precinct.

Then you said public safety and First Amendment rights can co-exist happily together. So what part of the First Amendment gives anyone a right to seize and occupy property? I can’t find that in there. That is not a right at all. They are occupying part of your city.

As to public safety, there has been no public safety there from the beginning. And who oversees this public safety of yours? Who is accountable for it? How about a title?

You are 0 for 2. 

Now I have to ask you a tough question, Mayor Jenny,  but what oath did you swear to? Were occupied territories in it? Were antonymous zones in there, or did you just create and annex them out of thin air? Sort of like that First Amendment you’ve been referring to?

If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, it’s not a Cadillac — or a block party.

But then a decent and professional reporter/jouralist of any kind would have asked the Mayor those questions. Wouldn’t they?

Sickness In Seattle

Someone in Seattle has called the CHOP autonomous zone a peaceful occupation protest. Wait a minute. If there is any part of it that is an occupation, then it is not. When you are holding people or property against their legal will, can it still be called peaceful?

If a person goes into someone’s home and lays siege to it as a peaceful occupation — because he didn’t hurt someone in the process — does that make it right? Of course that is a siege, an illegitimate one. I suppose they can try to claim it is “peaceful.”

This is America for Pete’s sake.

But that is what the Left is doing. They are giving legitimacy to illegality. Oh sure, they could call it civil disobedience or whatever they want such as a protest. That doesn’t make it legal. So brand it a protest to give it all the legitimacy they need.

On the other hand, what is going on across the country is sedition. To call it anything else is just crackerjack. Not calling it that does not change what it is.

Then there were shootings in CHOP/CHAZ over the weekend. Details are sketchy because they refused to let cops in. One 19 year-old male was killed by a gunshot but it seems no investigation can be done. CHOP experts will investigate. Too bad for the victim.

By Monday, a statement comes from Council member Kshama Sawant calling the Seattle Seige a “peaceful Capitol Hill occupation.” There’s that inflammatory word, peaceful.

Here is what Attorney General Barr said:

“Protests and demonstrations are fine, but when they become mob violence we need to restore public order. We can’t be ruled by mobs, we have to be ruled by the legal process.”

“There’s obviously legitimate demonstrators out there raising concerns about police abuse. But, a lot of these demonstrations have been hijacked by, essentially, anarchistic groups and professional agitators who are really in it just for the violence and confrontation.”

But the minute legitimate protestors hijack or lay siege to property, it cannot legitimately be called peaceful. This all goes back to years of the occupy movement “protests.”.

Is occupation peaceful? By definition that is an oxymoron. Is lawlessness a protest?

Several things the Left are now experienced at are coups, sedition and occupations. But calling them other terms is laughable. Oh, and making lists of political demands.

 

Also the same council member suggested the shooting was a “right-wing attack.” Further, here is CHOP’s official statement about the “incident.” (only for referrence purposes)

Note: they are also calling for Mayor Jenny Durkan to resign. (emoticon that)
Voices of CHOP: “no organizations, protests, or revolutions are perfect ….”

Joe Biden can’t make it up

….or could he?

Joe Biden arose from slumber to find himself on trial.
His offense? Not being sufficiently woke yet…
and about the only Democrat who isn’t.

Biden finally found a shovel-ready job. His retirement.

Joe Biden has no real plan for America. But that’s okay,
because America has no plans for Joe Biden.

Joe wants to create a new infrastructure bill.
Hunter Biden’s structured payments have ended.

Joe wasn’t too sure about defunding police.
So Democrats are defunding the Biden family.

Joe doesn’t do news much anymore.
Well there isn’t anything new with Joe for years.

Biden says Coronavirus reminds him of his old girlfriend.
He said “now there was a super-spreader.”

Joe doesn’t swim in the nude anymore
He can’t remember how.

Joe says he doesn’t have memory problems.
His biggest problem now is forgetting.

After emerging from the basement with his mask,
A Hollywood director wants him for Hannibal Lecter.

AND

We can confirm Stacey Abrams will be the next VP.
Well, she already pretends to be Gov of Georgia.

The Trial On American Culture

Some people might find this fascinating while others might think it is old news. Though I promise it is interesting how it all comes together in the present, in a unique way that might make more sense than what is happening daily in front of our faces .

It’s no secret I’ve been in religious battles from way back. I’m not writing a book here so I will be brief on details. I’m not lecturing anyone either. Those issues and battles may turn some people off. I hear that. But there is sort of the point: it does turn people off.

Allow me to explain about others like me who were engaged in those religious liberty issues by working all sides of the Constitution and our God-given rights with passion.

What is most interesting here is the opposition to our views — I mean the left or hard Left. They had a venom that defies description. All things were on the table. They used everything they could muster to try to knock down any Christian arguments or concepts.

They claimed to be big on freedom like that phrase “freedom from religion”. Within their perspective contained all the rights and freedoms they could find to oppose you. In fact they claimed to be real freedom zealots who just did not want anyone shoving Christianity, or its views, down their throats. Never take Leftists at their word.

So they were supposedly advocates for virtually any freedom, from thought to reason, to first and even acknowledging some second amendment rights. They were not against your freedom, but it had to be hospitable to their freedom and use of it. I won’t bore you.

The wider message was the more freedom the better. However, when it came to Christianity – since it is the only religion they were worried about — they were out to smear it any way possible. If they had to make things up, distort, lie, rip out of context; it didn’t matter what it took. They were out to destroy it as far as the public view anyway. There could be nothing left standing untouched, or unscathed. Scorched earth.

Now you should start to see where I am going with this. So any credible source or hero of Christianity was tarred and feathered. No credibility was to be left to them, whether it was a founder,a great Christian philosopher or writer. The Christian view was to be decimated in such a way no one would have any confidence, or very little. It was really meant to shake our faith. They didn’t want us to believe in it. Thus, question everything.

Sure they used lots of straw men. They fear-mongered about theocracy and projected that we were pushing it on everyone else. Of course it was the exact opposite; they were strategically pushing their hard-line theology on everyone else. It’s sneaky and deceitful.

They wanted nothing left but their view. Tear it all down. I say this because it was a perfect forerunner to what leftists are doing now. Remember: first they came for the Jews, but I didn’t care…. Then they came for the Christians, but I didn’t care. And a lot of people didn’t care about those arguments at the time. Who is going to care?

Liberals, as I called them, said they were all about enlightenment or exercising all liberties freely, but take your faith back into the prayer closet. It should be kept from the public square. Certainly people are familiar with those perspectives.

What I am saying is it was the exact same methodology used then as is applied to everything today. Oh, one would have thought they were the biggest zealots for liberty then. Some real Ayn Rand and Thomas Jefferson or Thomas Paine fans. Right!

Flash forward, now leftists are smearing everything and everyone in history. America just has bad roots. It is stained with blood, etc. Well, you can hear it all everywhere.

Everything is rotten in America. Thou shall have no pride in it. A pox on traditions, too.

But that was the same thing they did to Christians, especially strong ones. Leftists wanted to knock it down at least until no longer functionally influential. And preferably until you were beaten enough to stop fighting. So roll over and let them define, redefine everything in culture and America.

Now we see that was only a rehearsal for what they are doing on a larger scale today, It is the entire country they take issue with. There is no doubt about it. And they don’t want anything good to be left unscathed by their wrath for the country or its history.

In doing so, everything great and good about America is to be defamed or destroyed. No heroes or good history. Everything was bad since its inception. In fact, it was founded on lies and evil. Now you see the similarities, almost verbatim as if planned. But if you heard their rhetoric then, or 20 years ago, it feels like déjà vu mixed with voodoo now.

Destroy Christianity and its moral underpinnings, first. But if you cannot destroy it, then at least destroy people’s faith in it. Leave them no comfort.

Next, do the same thing to the entire fabric of the country. Create distortions, divisions and disagreements. Make everything seem questionable. Throw basic reason under the bus. Then destroy people’s confidence in it all and our foundation. After all, nothing can be salvaged or remain above the watermark. Only their useful bureaucracy.

Does it start to make sense, with all the statues being torn down? Every founder or notable person has tar on them. Every one. Bring out only the bad side of everything in America. This works on people how? Well, it tears down what you thought you held in high regard. Turns out that nothing can be held in esteem. All of it was a lie, or so their mantra goes.

Coincidence, I don’t think so. Now everything is so politicized, meaning nothing is left un-politicized., Well, because all is subservient to their radical ideology. And it is an anti-American, anti-Christian ideology. (commie is more like it)

Now they even get reinforcement aid from some left-wing Christians who are fully on board with this social justice war-gaming, which is only an extension of this ideology. (Liberation theology) Driven more by what it doesn’t like than what it likes because it respects almost nothing except power – political power to propel its evolution.

That is the shortest summary I’m able to give and still get the point across of the sinister nature to it. But I think knowing that makes a much clearer picture about what is taking place. Rather than just being blindsided as to what is going on or why.

The next time Democrats or the Left lectures us about “this is not who we are,” this past is who they still are. So remember we know exactly who they are – or what they are not.

Well-Heeled Scumbags And Cannibal Activists

It clearly looks as though the well-heeled masses and elites are coalescing around the toxic movement of Black Lives Matter, and its ever-evolving agenda of stupidity.

The lesson here is that one can feed the mob, if one chooses, but one should realize he or she may inevitably be on the menu.

Sometimes it is not the poison that kills the rat but the fatal drink after that does it.

Apparently they are unaware of the eventual blowback to follow a radical movement of this kind, from the people. We cannot sustain America on a diet of this garbage for any time.

But completely naïve of this or any other consequences to getting in bed with a brood of vipers like the BLM, these captains of destiny put everything on the line to lend their name and support to a political movement that has no conscience. It takes no prisoners; only destroys its enemies.

At the risk of trying not to be one of its enemies, these well-heeled corporations and individual players seek to be on the woke side of events, and in whatever lies ahead for the movement. So they fund or lend their credibility, and some of their fortunes, to something that could well destroy them in the end. But who cares?

It reminds me of how the boycotts shook out way back. It seemed popular to cater to boycotters’ whims on one issue, for the time. However, they didn’t seem to get that when they were busy caving to demands, it was their own value and company reputation they were happily putting on the line. Whose skin in what game?

The point was who does that? What sane mindset risks what they personally built and earned by handing it off to young thugs who don’t give a damn about their hard work or its value? Seems stupid to cede control over it to the mob.

But never mind what it does to the real value of your company. Ah, but you momentarily thought you were improving the value of that company. That’s a laugh.

Don’t they realize they are just being used as pawns for the mob’s political agenda? (whatever that is) Thereby reducing the value of a company to the will of thugs and activists. Sound like a good idea?

Of course the correct and only alternative is not to cave in to the thugs in the first place. Consequences to that, you ask? Maybe so but which is better? At least then you retain your own control over it rather than giving it away on extortion schemes.

It’s not like these street thugs are paying anything for the use of your name or company – but only taking or borrowing on it. How does that enhance your interests?

So here they are, once again, doing the same thing. Now there are more of them creating a mob of their own. More well-heeled elites chipping into the coffers, or getting on their knees to apologize to the mob.

That is not any kind of existence I want to have. While they may think there is something noble about it or in it for them, it really is an empty vacuum that will suck the value out of you for having caved to the mob’s whims. It’s a one-way street. You won’t even get their respect from the mob for your generosity. They cannibalize you in a heartbeat and walk away, on to the next cause du jour on their agenda.

So my advice to these well-heeled marks and would-be dupes of destiny is do not allow the mob to weaponize you or your business for its political gain. You might think you are doing something good by getting behind a popular cause but are you? Don’t think that immunizes you from the wrath of the mob in the future. It won’t.

It’s a bit like a protection racket. The minute you don’t pay, suddenly you don’t have any windows or your cash register is busted. You don’t win with the mob, only they do. You will become yesterday’s bread no one wants. They will loot and burn down your business as easily as the corner store, figuratively and literally, for not complying with their demands.

So if you really value your reputation, credibility or business, then why turn it over to the mob? Why allow it to be weaponized or even used against you? Their cause may seem just but so is yours. And no insurance will cover that loss.

Message from Buck Sexton

America Needs Wartime Conservatives

By Buck Sexton — Buck Sexton.com
Jun 17, 2020

We are losing right now.

It has taken four years, but the Democrat Party has finally managed to turn the tide against President Trump. They threw everything they had against him and pulled every dirty trick. But Trump was able to withstand the insane witch hunt of “Russia collusion,” the absurd Ukraine phone call impeachment, and the endless scheming of the institutional Left.

During this pandemic and the ensuing chaos on the streets, the fortress of Trumpism has finally been breached. This country has been through weeks of mayhem. Businesses have been looted and burned to the ground- and those who are responsible for the ideology behind this mayhem are allowed to claim the moral high ground. “Defund police” has become a mainstream chant, one echoed by Democrat politicians eager to pander and exploit.

Every sane person in this country should recognize that the Democrat Party- and all its appendages in the media- have completely lost their minds. The backlash against the defamation of our law enforcement community should be sweeping across the nation.

But that hasn’t happened. Instead, companies continue to fall over themselves to pay homage to the “Black Lives Matter” movement, and the elites cannot prostrate themselves before the movement fast enough. They think it’s working to their advantage- and so far, they’re right.

Where is our champion in this fight? Despite Trump’s almost superhuman resilience and grit, the President is in trouble. He has carried a political movement on his shoulders for years, and took the fight to the mainstream media in a way we have never seen before. But now the Democrats have Trump playing defense for the first time in his presidency.

Yes, he’s a great counter puncher, but he is fighting a once in a century pandemic as well as the mass mobilization of all the Democrats’ anti-Trump rage. There are simply too many assailants coming at him from too many directions. Even with the bully pulpit of the presidency, and over 80 million twitter followers, Trump’s message isn’t getting through.

The left wing mob is seizing this moment. They know whether making their demands in the streets or in the boardrooms of the most powerful corporations in the world, normal people are terrified to stand up to them. The woke mafia is drunk with power, and it’s only going to get worse unless people of conscience and courage stand up to the bullying and the lies.


We need wartime conservatism.

We need Americans, from our elected officials to media figures to the everyday men and women reading this right now to mount up for this fight. Do not get shamed into silence or complicity. No more apologizing for what you have not done, because people who do not know you and do not care about you demand it. That is the woke Left’s power. Take it away from them.

Make no mistake about it, this is going to be a challenging fight. Foolishly, we have ceded the chokepoints of the the digital world to the authoritarian Left. Our ideological opponents have seized all the major institutions of culture. An overwhelming majority of the news media, all of Hollywood, the academy, and now most of corporate America are in their hands. They control the biggest pipelines of information and the platforms of their elevation.

All of that is going to be mobilized against Trump, and his supporters. There will be losses. Good people are going to get de-platformed. They will get canceled. Many will be fired. This will happen at all levels of society, including public and private figures. We need to be prepared for that, and come to each others’ aid when it happens. Stand with those who stand for you.

Remember, the great purge is already happening. You are in this fight whether you want to be or not. You cannot buy off an invading army with a piece of territory when it wants total control. Weakness in the face of the Leftist mob only encourages it. They want to control what you do, say, and think. Never submit to them.

My fellow conservatives, do not waver.We can win this fight. And President Trump will rally us to his banner. It’s going to require us to become warriors for truth- each and every one of us- in our own ways.

Fight for your country, while it still feels like your country, and while you still have the freedom to do so. That may not always be the case. Time is running short.

Never bend the knee. Never surrender to the dictates of the mob. Support those who share your values and belief, even if it costs you. If enough Americans of honor and decency steel themselves with those principles, we will defeat this mob uprising of the woke Left and the Democrats’ hope to seize power this fall.

It’s time to turn this around. Your president needs you. Your country needs you. Let’s roll. #
