Nostalgia Joe Keeping It Real

Since old Scranton Joe — as some affectionately call him — really has a soft spot for nostalgia, he decided to bring back another favorite.

So back by popular demand, Joe is reviving the great “misery index.” It was such a smash hit in the 70’s that it is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Gotta love Joey and his ‘softer side.’

Joe recently paid a visit to former President Carter in GA, where he was briefed on the finer details. He wants to make sure to get all the aesthetics correct before rolling it out.

Stay tuned, old Joey is ironing out some logistics but promises it will be worth the wait.

 

For reference

 (Wikipedia) “The misery index is an economic indicator, created by economist Arthur Okun. The index helps determine how the average citizen is doing economically and it is calculated by adding the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate to the annual inflation rate.

It is assumed that both a higher rate of unemployment and a worsening of inflation create economic and social costs for a country.”

 

For example, Jimmy Carter’s Misery Index peaked at 21.98 in 1980 — almost rivaling some interest rates at the time.

 

It’s satire, people…. at least for now anyway. (Iggy says he has a similar index of his own)

And now for your listening pleasure only, to coincide with the anxiousness of the times.

Ready, Willing, And Able

It just sounded like a good title. Long in the tooth, as they say. The able part may be a little challenging these days but is still worth a shot. How many times have you heard over the years to “keep your powder dry?” Good advice!

But right now, it really is the case. What is happening on the other side daily is the Democrats are showing us what and who they are. Sometimes you don’t have to make the case since they demonstrate it much  better than you could explain it. What a fine-feathered nest of commies we have running the show, pushing their agenda forward. In one way they are the most persistent creatures of habit, while in another  the dumbest bunch you could find anywhere in the world.

Normally, I would say you could not find dumber people anywhere but they have really cornered the market on it. So it is no wonder they would have a guy like Joe in there being as dumb as a rock, but who prattles on about his fake accomplishments. It is an achievement for Biden to wake up in the morning and get out of bed. But then he is only the front man for the Commie Party of America. What good could ever come from that? Only pure evil can ooze from the Democrat Party now. It is completely unAmerican.

That bunch are worried about reforming the police departments? Another interesting phenomena is all the goals Joe keeps trotting out. What is it with him and goals? I’ve never seen someone so obsessed with weighting the outcomes of things. But of all the goals on everything else, he cannot make a simple goal on limiting the number of illegals surging our border or even curtailing it from historic highs. Nope, no goals necessary there. I guess that is because he is already exceeding his goal there.

Yet he did offer another kind of goal recently to dramatically increase the number of refugees we accept from around the world. Is 125,000 just the starting point? Could it go higher than that  — when in reality there is no number big enough for Demoocrat/socialist/commies? Joe’s only political vice is to appease the Left, until they want more anyway.

I suppose that is more of their Swamp Science they are so enamored with. They clearly don’t want the rest of us eating beef, but they survive on bullshit alone. Make sense?

The Most Important Question In The World

The most important question in the world right now is more of a personal question to everyone.  We have Marxism running amuck with no apparent end in sight.

So the real important question then is what you will do about it? And everyone will have to make that decision, at some point. It will be thrust on you. Will you wait until forced to answer or will you try to do something before it gets to that? Which is it?

But answer it we must. To have no answer is the same as condoning it. They interpret that as complicit agreement – or denial, which is the same thing. I could have figured out other ways to say it but the direct approach is best so words cannot be twisted or reinterpreted. We have a problem. What we do about it is what determines our posterity and freedom.

It is that bad already.

Some nay think it surely hasn’t gotten to that point yet or doubtfully will. But I have news for them. What more do you need to see? Do you need to feel the full-blown effects or are you realizing the truth about what we see daily rolling out in front of us? They have telegraphed their plans to us.

I know, we have already been accused of being deniers of science and lots of other names, conspiricists too. However, we watch them declare war on science. Yes, they call it science but they have substituted pseudo-psychology and sophistry for science. None of it is settled as they claim. They make it up as they go. A list should not be that necessary.

What do we know?

The Democrats have no credibility at all.

Everything they do is lie.

They are at war with science and the environment.

They believe narrative replaces facts and proof.

They have vilified and demonized over half the country.

They are determined to control what we think as well as what we say.

They are not loyal to what we know as America.

They are hell-bent on forcing socialism on us first. (that’s only the start)

They want total control of government and institutions of communication.

They will monitor what they don’t have control over.

They want divisions everywhere, even including a race war.

They have assembled an agenda of hate.

They will weaponize everything necessary to achieve their ends:
from information to technology, to means of production and all our resources.

They have no allegiance to our rights, as we know them.

They don’t accept our justice system as originally laid out.

They don’t accept limitations on government, only limitations on the people.

They push a “moral” narrative using any immoral means.

They practice the dark arts of deception in all they do.

They are purging the military and targeting their political enemies.

They will unleash anarchy and crime on us as a means to their ends.

They will seek to destroy anything in the path to their goals.

Government must be subservient to, not the arbiter of, their schemes.

Any of that sound exaggerated? It shouldn’t. It is all in place now rolling out across the country. Elections are not sacred to the sovereign will of the voters. The will of the people is whatever they claim it is. Their narrative replaces truth.

So it comes back to that all-important question, what will you do? The answer is still within the confines of the Constitution. But they have already strategized that battlefield.

What happens when people do not accept their methods and madness? We know one thing they still don’t like and can’t stand: any and all opposition.

Equality For Thee

“We hold these truths to be self-evident that…..”

No, stop right there! No, you don’t believe that, Joe.

As part of his COVID Relief for businesses, Joe Biden announced funding opportunities would first go to minorities and those who have traditionally been lagging. You know, in this systemically racist system of ours. So they would have exclusive priority in getting funds based on their racial or identity qualifiers. After 21 days, other people would be eligible for funds. So “first come, first serve” begins after 3 weeks of preferences.

(USA Today) “The law set aside $9.5 billion for the smallest bars and restaurants. Small businesses owned by women, veterans and socially and economically disadvantaged individuals will be given priority for review and funding during the first 21 days of the program. Afterward, applications will be funded on a first-come, first-served basis.”

What is this stuff? How would that stand up to Constitutional scrutiny? Joe should know this as a former chair of the Judicial Committee in the Senate. But either he doesn’t really care, doesn’t understand the Constitution. I don’t know which.

Now I realize when Joe obsessively talks about the 4th of July he wants to redefine as our independence from the pandemic, why he is set on that notion. But he really is trying to redefine July 4th, if you hadn’t noticed.

He is burying the original meaning of the 4th.. Back even then, we were wrong for what we were doing and our motives were clearly wrong. That is according to the new dogma of the Left anyway. There was nothing good about it. So he gets to create a good intention for the 4th of July. Just transpose all that celebration onto that new revision.

Naturally, when we repeat that line, “holding these truths self-evident,” Biden doesn’t actually believe that all men(in a general sense) are created equal. He believes some are more deserving than others; that racial preferences are necessary, and that equality was never really a thing. Joe considers discrimination a moral duty. Further, he thinks we should discriminate in enforcement of law too. In fact, it is the (new) purpose of law.

Free Speech Or Risky Speech?

How would you like it if there were a committee of people assembled in your town who got to decide whether or not you have free speech to participate in the public square? Or if you will be banned from access to the same resources everyone else communicates with?

Well, that is what Facebook is rolling out over whether Trump has free speech and access to the public square or not? Of course, in this case they decided that no, in fact, he does not. He shall remain banned and shunned like a leper, well, at least for six more months. What happens then? Maybe their “high Committee” will gather for another verdict.

If any of it sounds absurd, it should. What if you were treated the same way? All it takes is them declaring you a risk and unpalatable. Supposedly Zuckerberg went to the trouble of having this so-called independent committee decide Trump’s fate. But essentially, it could be our fate as well, and will be, since we can all be given the same ostracized treatment.

It comes down to their verdict of whether one’s speech is free speech or risky speech, or if their empowered committee cancels your participation rights or not? But never tell these arrogant lords of social media that their own right to exist or function is contingent on approval of some “mob” or “committee” — either one amounts to the same thing.

In the end, anything that may be a risk or threat to their power is branded an intolerable risk that cannot be allowed, because it  threatens their habitat and power. Isn’t that what this is all about, their habitat and its preservation? They get to decide who is allowed into their ever-expansive habitat and who is not. But then they don’t live by their own rules, yet they hold the cancel button for everyone else in their hands.

In this hierarchy, there are no appeals or other arbiters, all decisions and cancellations are final. If the mob decides you should be deleted, you are. They control town square and those in it. Who made big-tech kings? I thought America did not accept such royalty.

Josh Hawley gave us a preview even before his book comes out. And now that it is coming out, despite their cancel attempts, the Left are even more enraged than before.

What else is new, we have a president whose Justice Department is targeting his political opponents. Rudy Giuliani is raided like some criminal. Notice how days after news came out about John Kerry collaborating and sharing classified intelligence with the Iranians, it is suddenly time to round up Rudy. Great diversion and defensive tactics. Do you think we’ll ever see John Kerry rounded up and raided for what he was doing for four years? Nah. Have you ever thought such things were possible in America?

That is the problem, it doesn’t feel like America with these things happening. This is not democracy or America; it is anti-American. And part of the country wants it that way.

Screwed By Teachers’ Unions

Seriously, at what point do we finally hold teachers’ unions accountable for what they did? They are not exempt from the damages to our society — now or in the future.

But it is strange that any sort of real accountability seems to be fleeting these days, especially from the powerful. All you have to do is declare yourself (or organization) a voting bloc and you receive protected status against all accountability.

Teachers’ unions are no friends of America. They siphon the power away from the people, rendering the rest of us serfs and slaves to the political power.

 

It has finally come out that Randi Weingarten, president of American Federation of Teachers, directly lobbied the CDC to keep schools closed. And now we know that CDC listened to them and actually used their own words in its guidance.

When do unions get to set school policy? When do they get to set national health policy? It doesn’t matter when they did it. It was wrong and our government cannot be used as a long arm for teachers’ unions over the safety and welfare of our children or public.

 

Powerful teachers union influenced CDC on school reopenings, emails show

NY Post

The American Federation of Teachers lobbied the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on, and even suggested language for, the federal agency’s school-reopening guidance released in February.

The powerful teachers union’s full-court press preceded the federal agency putting the brakes on a full re-opening of in-person classrooms, emails between top CDC, AFT and White House officials show.

The emails were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by the conservative watchdog group Americans for Public Trust and provided to The Post.

The documents show a flurry of activity between CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, her top advisors and union officials — with Biden brass being looped in at the White House — in the days before the highly-anticipated Feb. 12 announcement on school-reopening guidelines.

“Thank you again for Friday’s rich discussion about forthcoming CDC guidance and for your openness to the suggestions made by our president, Randi Weingarten, and the AFT,” wrote AFT senior director for health issues Kelly Trautner in a Feb 1 email — which described the union as the CDC’s “thought partner.”

“We were able to review a copy of the draft guidance document over the weekend and were able to provide some initial feedback to several staff this morning about possible ways to strengthen the document,” Trautner continued. “… We believe our experiences on the ground can inform and enrich thinking around what is practicable and prudent in future guidance documents.”

/…  The AFT also demanded special remote work concessions for teachers “who have documented high-risk conditions or who are at increased risk for … COVID-19,” and that similar arrangements should extend to “staff who have a household member” with similar risks. A lengthy provision for that made it into the text of the final guidance.

Who in the hell is running this country? I think we know. Time for some serious accountability. The Biden administration claims this is leading by science.  I know, let the Mexican cartels run our border and immigration policy, too. Right, they already are.

Biden’s Joint Session Redress

Well, was it really Joe Biden’s speech? He was pushing Bernie’s platform. You know, the most progressive (socialist) administration in history. But I will start with the end first, which is where Democrats always start.

Interesting that the first place Biden went after he delivered it was to see Bernice Sanders.

But if Biden’s goal was to make Bernie look good, he sure did. Joe told us about all these big spending ideas with big price tags. Then he says we will pay for it by making the rich pay their fair share. (as if they don’t.)

So to seal the deal, Obiden repeated that no one making less than 400k per year would see an increase in their taxes. Whether that is families or individuals is not clear.

Now remember Bernie debating Hillary in 2016 came right out and said the middle class would see their taxes go up substantially — average +6000 more than their current taxes were then.  And even lower income people too. But he said look at all the benefits they would get in return. So it would be worth it. That was Bernie’s deal.

But Biden did not make that pitch.

Delaware Joe either did not get that memo or forgot that part of the Bernie formula. Of course their taxes will have to be raised, too. Biden is just plain lying. At least Sanders admitted it when confronted about it. (that is common knowledge)

In reality, this wasn’t really a State of the Union or Joint Session Speech. It was a straight out solicitation to buy votes. Only it was not peppered with some flowery rhetoric like Democrats typically do. He just went directly out on the street corner to proposition them.

 

He would not talk about what he is really doing or the platform for it.

He claimed America is back…. to the systemically racist country we always were. Then he promises to build back better. Not a chicken but a racist in every pot.

Create a crisis on the border of historic proportions. Then ignore it completely as a non-issue. Then use it to blackmail the country for an amnesty plan.

Attack and run a court-packing scheme on the Supreme Court. Well, even worse than Obama standing up there attacking SCOTUS in his speech.

Calling half the country racists was classic, claiming they are worse than any present foreign threat. Demonize anyone who did not vote for him.

Killing good paying jobs with the stroke of a pen the first day. Killing jobs, jobs, jobs!

Canceling out political enemies or opposition to himself.

Turn the country into a seething mobocracy and then rant about democracy.

Enact gun control any way possible.

Hike taxes under the guise of the rich paying their fair share.

Take credit for the gains Trump built and vaccines he expedited. Now it is back to the business of crooked politics as usual. Swamp rules will be  in force.

But the vote-buying was uniquely bold and undeniable. He made clear his sole intention is to spend lots of money as the incentive for his purchase. He’s only 100 days in; can he carry on this purchase scheme for 4 years? What does he do when he runs out of money? The gig is up because that is all he knows how to do.

Interesting how he claims no rights are absolute. Then he claimed he is not going against the Constitution but only being reasonable. Now we know his definition of “reasonable.” That becomes the new code word for unconstitutional. Free speech gets the same.

He replaced Russian collaboration on every corner with White Supremacist threats everywhere across America. The citizens are now public enemy number one.

But what we really need is redress from Biden and the socialist Left.

Transparentless

Some people may wonder why all I talk about is politics. The answer is simple. When I was  20, if you asked me if I would be talking about politics, I would have laughed and said that will be the day everything else is off the table. But that is what happened, everything else has been removed and politics is the only thing left. I didn’t make those rules.

This is because everything has been usurped by politics. Virtually everything you see now is either chronically affected or controlled by politics. It offends me. So that is my gripe, rather than my mission of only politics.

Now there is one secret strategy I want to mention. When Trump was in office, all the talk was about transparency. Remember that great thing? Obama boasted about being transparent. (There’s a big difference between Obama and Trump transparency.)

Trump talked about what he would do and then set out about doing it. Everything he did amounted to questions asked or explanations about it. Sort of simple, isn’t it? Transparency is making the case and doing the job. They all should have loved that and mostly did. But some for mixed reasons.

Biden on the other hand is showing us the left’s idea of transparency. (or duck and cover) The strategy there is you don’t talk about what you are going to do. You don’t say exactly what your plans are. No, you just do it. Why is that a strategy?

Well, everything Biden has done is the most radical agenda we have ever seen. Much of it may not be popular with the people. Still, just doing it requires their opponents to react and call attention to it. See, these radicals just do it often without telling you. When people see it, they have to point it out and react to it. (usually after the fact) But if no one does react, oh well.  They don’t want the debate about it beforehand because you can assemble opposition and criticize it, which makes the public aware of the plans.

But if they say nothing, then you have to find out, explain it, argue against it, raise the public’s attention about it; all after the fact. It is not that it is too late to do anything, but that you are challenged just to break through about its importance  from the beginning. So they say nothing and carry out their sinister agenda. Media assists their silence. That leaves you to discover their plans and point out their dirty deeds in the first place. They certainly don’t want to announce them to the whole public.

If you do oppose them, they have already plotted out their talking points to rebut any attacks. Yes, it is a stealth strategy but what do you expect from the commie left? They are about power and control, or using it, not defending their ideas. You want a debate, they only want the power. Transparency becomes another redefined word. They claim after the fact, when you find out about it, that it is all transparent.

With Trump, it was talked about first so they could critique it. Media loved that. So they could broadly attack Trump’s plan beforehand. Biden would have no patience for that.

CNN is reporting that Lying Biden’s speech will showcase his “moderate radicalism”.
What is that? More transparency, of course, served with a side order of secrecy.

They just make this stuff up as they go, new terms new definitions.

In-fra-structure

That sounds like some Greek fraternity. In reality, infrastructure as most people think it is pretty basic but does not include things like cross-gender studies or transgender education. Infrastructure is as infrastructure does. 

Only in Washington could they take something that is bipartisan and obvious and turn it into a hole to pour money into.

Both Democrats and Republicans have now put out a plan to address infrastructure. But Democrats seem to think it is anything they want.

Big spending has become a sacrosanct political opportunity.

My simple theorem is that the more big-spending they do the more lying and opportunities for it there are. It becomes an assault on truth.

I listened to some callers on Cspan about what is needed in their states relating to infrastructure. They varied but clearly the people interpret infrastructure as roads, bridges, electric grid, water and large projects related to basic needs. Liberals need to redefine terms as they go.

Can’t we, for once, stick to standard or traditional definitions? For instance, school lunches and changing diapers are not infrastructure. (and I don’t care how big a load an 8-month-old puts out daily.) Gender transitioning is not basic infrastructure.

Years ago I envisioned a truth in legislation act, which basically said bills should have to tell the truth about what it does. It has only gotten worse since then. Titles especially should reflect that notion. That definitely would not include re-imagined and redefined terms to suit ideology. Changing terms changes the purpose and intention. It ends up meaning anything.

Now Republicans have a bill focused on only real infrastructure. It has pay-fors in it instead of a blank big-spending bill. We’ll see where it goes. But there are no bridges to re-imagined terms in that one.

Bushisms Are Back Out Of Fashion

Bush Republicanism Must Go Away

By J.B. Shurk | April 26, 2021

The Democratic Party is actively trying to start a race war in the United States, and George Bush thinks it’s Republican voters who need lessons in humanity and fellowship. 

Bush is on the media circuit these days pushing amnesty (while calling it anything but!) for millions of foreign nationals who have entered the country illegally; lecturing Republican voters on being “more respectful about the immigrant”; and trying desperately to reclaim the Republican Party as the slightly less socialist wing of the Uniparty where neoconservative, offshoring, job-destroying, globalist-advancing, Chamber of Commerce–approved, multinationals-funded, (secret) limousine liberal, military-adventuring, surveillance state, Big Government devotees who follow in the footsteps of Nelson Rockefeller while feigning allegiance to President Reagan’s “revolution” can offer Americans the opportunity of voting against Democratic Party by pushing a platform identical to the Democrats’ own policies ten years earlier.  Go Jeb!

“Isolationist,” “protectionist,” and “nativist” are the three adjectives Bush has for the energized and expanded Republican Party refashioned by the MAGA coalition of voters who finally found their voices after thirty years in the wilderness and a worthy champion in President Trump.  

More> https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/04/bush_republicanism_must_go_away.html

I won’t even drink Bush beer anymore. And I sure don’t appreciate someone using art to lecture people. Cheeky humor doesn’t help. Again conflating illegal with legal immigration.

What Is Wrong With Chauvin Verdict

The issue at hand is not the verdict of the Derek Chauvin trial itself but with the interpretation and narrative about it and the verdict.

But first, here is what Biden said about it:

“It was a murder in the full light of day, and it ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism the Vice President just referred to — the systemic racism that is a stain our nation’s soul; the knee on the neck of justice for Black Americans; the profound fear and trauma, the pain, the exhaustion that Black and brown Americans experience every single day.”

Let us be honest not partisan hacks or BLM activists. The fact that Chauvin’s actions or trial ripped the blinders off of the systemic racism is hogwash. It did nothing of the sort. It revealed no systemic racism.

It did not in the trial do that. Systemic racism, or what is typically meant by it, has little to noting to do with the charges or results. Where is that case?

The case was not about racism or a racial motives. Just because you have a black suspect, it is not racism. You would have to say but for the fact Floyd was black it would not have happened, or have gone the way it did. You don’t have that.That case was not tried.

Lost in this case is the fact that he was a suspect for giving fraudulent payment to a store. The reason for approaching him was clear. It was not harassment because he was a black man. He was not singled out for race.

So very odd that, for a case that was billed far and wide as a prime example of systemic racism, it was not really about racism at all. It was about police brutality or misconduct. It was about whether Chauvin caused Floyd’s death. It would have been the same if it were a white person. But his race was not a factor of the brutality. It was not proven so.

Yes, no need for all the disclaimers that it was the correct verdict. And it was not wrong. But the case was not about what we are being told it was all about. Why can’t they be honest about the entire case and circumstances involved?

That systemic racism narrative does not line up with the facts or trial. The trial itself was not about racism. It was about three counts of charges for his wrongful  death.

 

Biden went on to say in his WH remarks:

“The murder of George Floyd launched a summer of protest we hadn’t seen since the Civil Rights era in the ‘60s — protests that unified people of every race and generation in peace and with purpose to say, “Enough.  Enough.  Enough of the senseless killings.”

Enough of the senseless killings? (plural) But there was reason for the confrontation of Floyd which occurred that day. Biden suggests there is an unending stream of “killings.” The only unending stream of shootings and homicides, occurring on random innocent people by the way, goes on every day in Chicago and NYC.. Yet Joe never talks about those numbers of killings. Not to mention volumes of killings of cops across the country.

He neglects to mention a summer of riots and looting that resulted, which he never talks about. It took him over 3 months to even mention the violence when they occurred. That rioting was one hell of a lot of unification, wasn’t it?

People did unite over the wrongful death but not the “systemic racism” narrative the Left and media continually postulated. But it seems there is  never enough of that.

Here is what else Biden said:

“They (people of color) don’t have to worry about whether their sons or daughters will come home after a grocery store run or just walking down the street or driving their car or playing in the park or just sleeping at home.”

No, they have to worry about that in Chicago, NYC etc., but not at the hands of cops.

“And this takes acknowledging and confronting, head on, systemic racism and the racial disparities that exist in policing and in our criminal justice system more broadly. “

The systemic racism is not the culprit of murders, unless you are counting the thugs and gangs in the street as systemically racist. There are racial disparities though that Joe and Democrats never want to address. Over and out.

This racism narrative is gross negligence of reality.

Operation: Information Shutdown

What a difference from the last administration. After the press obsession with news then, Joe Biden suddenly has the luxury of a complete absence of coverage on his administration. Sure, press briefings occur, which only serve to further blot out anything which could be regarded as real news.

Obviously, the orders are out that real questions on issues are not welcome unless they have the certain White House-friendly perspective necessary.

H/T: A fellow friend of this blog had a piece weeks ago with thorough disgust at what is depicted on news aggregate sites. So I took a look at one he mentioned. Indeed, it is stunning the conclusions you can draw just from a simple gleaning.

The big story in 2021 – with our vast social media, tech, and media—is the black out of news and information, creating a giant information black hole. Even if a story of import arises, it gets little to no attention. That is considered satisfactory for the mainstream press. Only news gets coverage that they want reported. Nothing else. Who decides?

They have willing media helpers to make sure nothing gets the attention it deserves unless it is granted permission. What a way to run a country? What a way to run a free press.

However, as he noted in his piece, there are still stories running on anything to do with Trump. But another notable change is that any kind of celeb news, and you know how serial and crazy that can be, seems to have replaced any real news of significance. Anything but real news. Joy Behar, Jennifer Lopez, and Lebron James are flaunted as news jocks.

It is as if the clock was turned back to the seventies and all the press were furloughed, or sent on mission not to cover the news – anything but.

The syndicate Left wants no information flow on what is the most radical administration in modern times acting in secrecy by the most nontransparent standards. Keep the public in the dark on everything. Meanwhile, radical thugs and rioters chant in the streets, “this is what democracy looks like.”

The Orlwellian newspeak of what they do tell us is reminiscent of Russia or China. If they do not want you to know, then you can bet there is a good reason.

What a glaring contrast from the last administration. In your face arrogance on steroids.

Downstream Politics, Upstream Revolution

As an aside admission, for years I did not take seriously enough that politics was downstream from culture. But I see how important that is.

I underestimated the connection between the two. Ignorance is no excuse.

You know, Democrats over the years criticized the right any time it stood up on cultural issues. They would say anything to get us to ignore culture. Not to say it worked; you can’t ignore it. But they knew culture is upstream from politics. So if you can change the culture then you change politics.

No wonder they wanted to fool us into ceding ground to the culture. If the Cultural Revolution is raging, the worst thing you can do is not show up – or dismiss it entirely. Some Republicans have yet to learn that while all the Democrats delve into it like the mother’s milk.

Forfeiting that ground is a huge error of omission in the war. Democrats seem to have a knack for running that cultural warfare. Not leading it but running out in front of every issue. We often just sigh and turn away.

But we cannot afford to do that. We must embrace the cultural battle if we want to win this war for the country. It may not be easy, but losing the country is tougher to handle. Losing both politics and the country in the end is devastating.

So the sage advice is to engage it or lose it. As I said at the top, I am guilty for not paying enough attention to the premise behind it. I am convinced Democrats understand that if they can change the culture, they can change the country. And naturally, the political advantage goes with it.

EO Methods And Madness

Warning to conservatives: this gem is only a big story to those of us who do have a moral conscience in tact. For media and all others unrestrained by those boundaries, it is just a non-story not worth reporting. I grade it a 10 on that basis.

I hope you check out the whole article to see what the sinister Biden administration is cooking up. After a previous post on rights, this is the natural follow up.

“Executive Order Canceling the Constitution”

By Leo Goldstein | April 20, 2021

“On April 15, Preident Biden signed an Executive Order on Blocking Property with Respect to Specified Harmful Foreign Activities of the Government of the Russian Federation. Contrary to its title, this EO is not about Russia. It is designed to allow the Biden administration to deprive American citizens and organizations of their rights and property by arbitrarily linking those persons to real, imagined, or vaguely defined activities of the Russian government.

The Biden administration unilaterally makes the determination and requires neither criminal acts nor intent. The punishment is blocking assets and a prohibition on any dealing with the accused person. Spouses and adult children of individuals found guilty by accusation under this EO are punished, too.

The EO was preceded by some distracting maneuvers, both diplomatic (hostile rhetoric toward Russia) and military (sending naval ships toward the Black Sea and recalling them back, as if dealing with Russian threats). Thus, many people assumed that the EO was directed at Russia, and completely missed the fact that it is directed at dissent here, at home.

Over the past four years, the Democrat Party, Fake News, and Big Tech have been frequently portraying their opponents as Russian trolls or Russian misinformation operators. The Russian collusion narrative, initially invented to overthrow the Trump administration, has been used to smear many conservative movements. Now this effort has been crowned by an Executive Order.”…/

“The Biden administration can define “malicious activities,” “democratic processes or institutions,” and the activities that undermine them as it wants.”

This lays out the cold-blooded strategy to unleash it on Americans. Though many will be unaware of it, since media does not report the news that concerns people.

This is one wicked order.

The fact that they thought it all out, even borrowing words from an old Bush EO, shows how they plan on using it domestically on people. More importantly, how they can employ it against political opponents at will.

But they have experimented with using accusations of Russian collaboration for years, even before Trump. This only enshrines and codifies that process into fiat law.

As I read through it, thinking of various applications, it seems to empower certain areas in our government. They would be in Treasury, Justice, and our intelligence apparatus. Eerily similar to how they used those last organs in 2016. Now they appear to make official those same type methods. Its use will probably not be front page news.

Choose Your Destiny

In an interview on Fox, Professor Shelby Steele was asked what the people could do to push back against the radical race agenda controlling the narrative everywhere? He brought out Dem’s sacred cow saying we must stop all this white guilt and then most of the problems would go away.

Eliminating that would inoculate society against their demonic race agenda. I wonder how much of it would be stopped by ending white guilt?  The left knows that. Only white guilt allows this racial hustle to thrive.

Then, it is no wonder Leftists are pushing this race agenda against white children and families in our schools. There are teaching kids to be ashamed of themselves for who they are and breeding guilt into them. It is the way to perpetuate the whole agenda forward.

But try to imagine reversing roles to instruct minority children that they cannot ever be proud of themselves or where they came from. They must be ashamed of their heritage for the problems it caused. That they are seen only by the identity of their color and race. Tell minorities they can never feel equal to other people because of their race. Tell them their race is responsible for all the problems. But that is what they are intentionally doing.

Steele was right. I think the predominant problem in America now is the insidious, systemic white guilt being cultivated to perpetuate their nefarious lies. That prescription will inevitably lead to a race war and violence. Is that what they want? I think so.

It Is Not A Design Failure

What we learned in the last year is how quickly the whole thing can go down. And that all it really takes is a few aligned contributing factors. Our enemies have been plotting for decades what we now are doing and allowing ourselves.

Despite all the talk, this is not about race relations in America. It is about relations, but about the relationship between the people and the government.

Cue the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed….”

The important part for this purpose is Governments are instituted to secure these rights. But what happens when Government is no longer interested in securing our rights, for whatever reasons, or has other more important priorities instead?

Things go downhill fast.

We can get to the point where Government (if you can call it that) refuses to do anything to protect the safety and security of the people. In fact, it could get to where its entire agenda is to not protect  the people and ignore the will of the people. Imagine that? Right, we don’t have to because we are just about there.

That sort of knocks the legs out from under any real justice. But isn’t that what we have? Only it is not a matter of race. We will all be punished when it cannot manage real justice. Things go downhill from there. There are enough people now who don’t want justice and don’t care. But I wouldn’t trust any polls on that. And you know that based on what they do want, what they say and their agenda. It doesn’t matter if they scream about it and democracy. They want neither. Their objective seems to be no justice for all.

So where does a country go when that all happens? I can tell you it is a horrible place. Earlier in life, I had thought there was no chance of this scenario as long as some people would not allow it. Well, guess what?

I don’t like being wrong but I was. It can happen despite all that. The funny part is I don’t think Government will be too happy about the results in the end either.

Seek Justice Reap Peace

The motto ought to be to ‘seek justice and reap peace.’ But when we do not reap peace, there is a problem. When we do not reap both justice and peace, there is conflict.

But often even when we seek justice we do not reap peace, when there is conflict, strife, violence and unrest instead; then we look for accountability for all of it and find none at all. That really needs to be addressed.

So we get a guilty verdict on all counts that may validate the process, however, it does not justify or validate all the violence and destruction in the name of some “social justice”. Those acts too must stand accountable for what they are. Violence and urban terrorism cannot be exempt from justice. We should not have a preference for violent unrest.

But we see over and over those acts go on unchallenged and unaccounted for. They just are. Wrong becomes right and right becomes wrong. We cannot tolerate constant random violence under any name. It must be held to account. It cannot be dismissed just because we get a verdict we agree with afterward. The end does not justify those means.

The black community is not alone in seeking justice. When most of the country does not feel confident there will be justice, it sows a seed of distrust. That goes for black, brown, white or any other. But the violence we see repeatedly in the streets is not a replacement for justice. Mob rule is no suitable replacement for democracy and the rule of law either.

Again, how about a piece of justice for all?

Stop acting as if any violence is condoned if we don’t get our way.

The lies will roll on in the media, who obviously are not seeking justice either.
And we are all reaping what they are sowing.

Floyd Verdict Hangs In Air

Tuesday it is reported the jury in the George Floyd case has come to a verdict. It will be reported soon. That could mean only one thing.

But tonight the verdict will be delivered to Minneapolis. Does it survive?

In the coming days the verdict will be delivered across the country. We surmise what that will be. What was that deliberation process?

So it isn’t a hung jury for Floyd but it could be for the country. What a shame. Protests are planned in solidarity with Floyd in major cities.

And if Mad Auntie Maxine’s comments were not enough yesterday, Biden added to the mix suggesting the verdict is overwhelming, in his opinion.

It all sort of makes you wonder deeply what due process really is?

NBC: “”But at the same time, I can’t stop people from doing the things that they’re doing because people are in pain,” Floyd[George’s brother] said, adding Daunte Wright was killed by a police officer following a routine traffic stop just 10 miles from the court room where Chauvin is being tried. “They’re hurt.”

I don’t see pain as riots and looting. Hurt doesn’t align with destroying bunsinesses and personal property in towns and cities across the country. America awaits that verdict.

How about a piece of justice?
