New American Phenomena

It turns out that after 246 years, a new phenomena has been uncovered far into the deepest regions of the US. It sent shivers down the historical food chains and libraries everywhere, not to mention the panic in news rooms and on op-ed desks.

In 2020, we officially discovered that you can abridge any free speech or press by simply calling it Russian disinformation,… multiple sources familiar with the matter have told us.

This is not a joke, it is not hyperbole. No civil service employees or federal agents have been harmed or exposed in creation of this report. It cannot be used in a “court of law;” and no Russian disinformation was used or consulted for this report.  Sponsored by FJB LLC. We regret any confusion this may have caused in the past. But now you know.

The Woke Goes For Broke

I write this not to have some fun with words, and see how creative I can be. I do it to at least try to make some formative point hopefully anchored to national traditions and values. It gets hard sometimes — words being what they are.

But what frustrates me is that in doing so, it cannot come up to the level of this current reality. Maybe in some ironic way one can only do that through fiction because the truth is too scary to even imagine. Truth and reality go beyond what can be accepted, easily.

A weird thing happened when Trey Gowdy delivered his weekly monologue once again talking about prosecution and Lady Justice wearing her proverbial blindfold. Trey being the great proponent for prosecution(sigh), his grievance list did not even include Benghazi. No, newsflash: ‘Lady-J’ is now woke and she is not wearing any blindfold. She sorely resents the day she ever did. That’s what we have here: outright rebellion against American concepts, certainly justice.

Lady-J is swinging loose and doesn’t mind showing you who she endorses, or whom she doesn’t. She has predispositions now and doesn’t mind you knowing it. She’s a postmodern form of whatever. It is all only relevant to wishes and desires — not yours particularly but of some woke mob who gets to decide what justice is, or is not. And she’s pretty much told us, through parlayed actions of the left, that she is not moored to any traditional justice you learned was fair and just. She has “moved on!”

She has busted a move and she’s not looking back.

All this recoil and flailing about on news networks of the left, or among leftist minions, is only their way of telling us that’s the way it is. Mother’s little helpers they are, telling us “there is a new mother nature taking over”, and it is them. [1] It’s woke and sure not blind.

Never mind if any others might attempt to take control because the freaks of injustice have a pretty possessive hold on it all. Dare you to try.

Who knew justice would be a fatal shot of a full frontal assault on the US? Something we so long took for granted, not for the outcome it always delivered but for the aspirational virtue we held in it. Crush that and you crush the hopes and dreams of the people. If you have nothing to defend you, then what is all the struggling about? Why not just succumb to tyranny? Might as well. That’s probably the plan anyway.

The whole country was founded on aspirational freedom and justice that, while not perfect, was as securely held as anything in the world. It was not guaranteed to always deliver the correct outcome, but the process itself had checks and guards to keep it fair. You might have to make Lady Justice work a bit, but the hope was to make it work.

Talk to an attorney sometime and a value will surface. They claim that they can at least make the system work. Maybe they cannot guarantee outcome but they can make the process do its diligence. Exhaust the options. Now that is even out the window.

We hear talk of amendments or bill of rights only to eventually realize there is no guarantee anymore. If nothing stands in the way of tyrants — be they party apparatchiks or court officials — trampling on your sacred God-given rights, then for their purposes you have none. They don’t care if they are violating a higher authority. They are the only ensconced power as far as they are concerned. And they have no one to answer to for it, which is even worse. It can all go as far or fast as they want to roll this thing.

To hear the Left use terms like social justice, I often think to myself: just what is it they mean by that term? Is it some social contract they think is a force around the world? Is it a form of voodoo or mysticism? Why do they want to substitute that, whatever it is, for justice based on rule of law? Don’t they believe in the rule of law anymore?

The sad answer is no. But if we don’t have a hope of justice, we are in deep doo-doo. They’ve shown us, in reality, what it means not to have real justice. The message could not be louder. The rabid Left’s response to any complaints is “get used to it.”

But it also doesn’t much care if you like it or not. Lady-J ain’t blind anymore and she is just as radical as Leftists are, or want to be. And stop calling her a she!

Morning In America to Mourning America

In the span of 40 years, we have gone from Morning in America to Mourning America. It didn’t happen by accident either. That is no achievement — or is it for some people?

It is hard to imagine yet we all witnessed what led up to it. No, this is not about Trump — much as the left wants everything to be about DJT — it is about the greatest country in the history of the world.  That’s far bigger than one man or the blame of one man.

The USA will be 250 years old in 2026, no matter what leftists say. Instead, we will all be wondering if we can make it another 10 years, never mind 100 years. Well, what do you think? Have we reached the expiration date on the carton? Is it time to face reality?

I mean the polls, which are not very dependable, have already said less people are now proud of the country. There is a lot in an opinion: Proud of what it’s become? Proud of what it is doing? Proud of the direction it is going? Proud of present America?

I want to believe people are still proud of the conception and idea of America. Though I don’t know the chances for any celebration in 2026? Some aren’t even proud of that. Their whole goal on the left is to destroy our pride. Certainly not to allow it to continue.

Some of them would be right there rooting for a Chicom takeover, or at least not caring one way or another about it. Just the way they are welcoming illegals over the border.

When these kinds of public sentiments are popular, we are in a bad place. It breeds grief.

I would like to suggest all kinds of ways to fix it. But the only way I know of to do that is to fix the people who are ruining it. So we stand here on the virtual eve of 250 years, 1/4 of a millennium, at a crossroads. Who anticipated that say 40 years ago?

Personally, I would much prefer if there were a celebration of how far we came and what we have done. Instead, it is about what all is wrong with America — has been for years.

The next presidential term will have this anniversary on its watch…. whoever that is.

Joey, the author of grief at your service.

Remember when Ronald Reagan criticized the government and its ambitions? Well, today the Left criticizes the American people and whatever we hold dear. See the shift over 40 years? We have become the problem — not their machinations with our government, or its abuses of power. They are from the government, here to help, but we are the problem.

Someone is lying and we cannot be to blame for this whole mess. In fact if we had our way, some heads would roll and there would be some accountability, very generously applied.  But since there really is no accountability that is our fault, too?

Let me guess, they have all the answers to fix it by shutting us up and the Constitution down. Why do they think Marxism is the answer? Anyone who still denies their Marxist cause is willfully ignorant. They see economics as the big problem because much of their ideology is rooted in it. (not real economics — but their corrupted economics)

It is a hybrid political economics. And if you think CRT is bad enough, then wait until radicals control our entire economic system. That’s where this all goes. So having radixal leftist ideology running our economic system, who thinks that is a great idea?

Confidence is dwindling but you cannot fix stupid. You’d think we’d be over this by now.

So we are having a grief crisis in America. Grab a Kleenex and say an earnest prayer.

4th of July Retro

Not to get too personal, I’ve known a lot of different kinds of people over the years. Some of them were freedom fighters, anarchists to revolutionary types. But most of them had at least some redeemable characteristic about them. They were genuine and for the most part decent people. They cared about things, maybe too much. That needs explaining.

But conversations did not dwell on their ideas, it was about whatever was going on, events, or people. We got along fine. Few were spiritual but most were clearly not. I would have even called some of them radical, except that meant something different than it does now. (or in its current use) Just a wild diversity of people and views. Seemed harmless.

One interesting friend was a guy I knew from early on who sort of started the trend. His specialty was Marxism and political science. A very knowledgeable person when I wasn’t.

As to most of the others, some might thought weirdos at the time, they fit into another category altogether. Some were very intelligent too, but that was not the point. They had a belief in something, what exactly wasn’t too clear. But interesting might have trumped everything else. There seemed no good reason why we could not all be friends. Why not?

Although those ideas or views were not the center of any friendship, one question always baffled me about their particular views or politics. That was to where such a view would lead? How far would it go, and how deep were those views? I never dwelt on an answer except that I did not know. And I had no reason to think they knew either.

Now there is a reason why I say this. I never really held it against them. It’s their thing. I like my views so don’t bug me about mine; I don’t bug them about theirs. Simple right? Kind of a mutual code of conduct. As long as we all adhere to that, fine.

 

But oh how times have changed. Or should I say how the times have changed us? The thing is today we see all too clearly where the ideas lead. There can be no mistaken agenda about it. The revolutionaries today are more like FARC or guerilla revolutionaries, who would pair up with Che Guevera, Chavez or Maduro. There is no hiding the truth about their purpose to undermine the legitimacy and history of the USA.

It gets harder today to give them a naive benefit of the doubt about a radical agenda, or where it leads, because we’ve seen the proof. They all go down the same Marxist hole to follow the commie line. You can no longer just say, “I’m not a part of any of that.” This is where radicalism leads; whether they knew it then or not, we all know it now.

No more passes. So if you are a part of that or allied with it, you can and should be called out with the rest of the vast anti-American revolutionaries. How about a little pride?

Media or establishment can call out Jan 6th protestors for disagreeing with their election, but can’t condemn real revolutionaries undermining everything in America. Weird eh?

 

Lets take a look at the one thing, belief, that carries across the spectrum. I have my beliefs, these people apparently have theirs. I don’t know exactly what all their beliefs are based on but I know what mine are based on. This is not about who is right or wrong. Except that someone has to be in the end. It did not used to matter so much.

So if you have some strong beliefs, you should know what they are based on. We saw that with Obama: just believe in some transformational thing without knowing what the hell it really is, or where it leads. Believe in him and what he says.  From Obama’s perspective, all that mattered is that people “just keep believing” period. A real faith-based campaign.

No more excuses, the ideology matters.

My ideas and beliefs are based on things that stood the test of time.  And the critical thinking needed to make assessments about other beliefs. If beliefs are not based on anything, we can figure out where they eventually lead. And we see a whole lot of that now coming to the surface. No more excuses, you didn’t know. You should have known, not like there is a not enough evidence out there already, and accumulating fast.

These days, radicals are not nice people. Radical is a big step from what it used to be in a non-conformist environment.  Now it is all about conforming to radical views or ideas represented in our government by the revolutionary types. It turns out the revolution was against America not for her and, by the looks of it today, they won.

There is another controversial idea that they won. Let me explain. If by won we mean who is in control and assumed power, it is them — the radicals. Looks are deceiving. But if you mean what prize, other than levers of power, they won it is a different matter.

No, they didn’t win over any of us normies out there who already had our own fixed set of beliefs or ideas. Last I checked, socialists might be gaining but they don’t convince many of us who know better. They do convince those without any firm beliefs who can be molded into their power base — which is also still not the majority of the country.

So now the fun begins.

But they are really not winning in the real sense, which matters. They aren’t winning in public opinion in hearts and minds. The more people find out — aka gets revealed — about what this is about and where it leads, the less they like it. You cannot sign on for the long haul without knowing where something leads. That is why Dems have to put up vague visions of utopian green energy plans, social issues or redistribution diversions.

It is not government’s role to scam us. But the truth is being carefully filtered out about these Marxist agendas and they don’t want us to know where it leads.

It’s sort of like looking at the Nigerian email scam. If it looks and acts like a duck, then it ain’t a Maserati. We cannot allow them to deny the obvious. Radicals are now every bit as revolutionary as the people who swept in Nicholas Maduro. So if you sign on for part of it, you are signing on for the whole package because that is where it leads.

So excuse me if I hassle some people about their views and beliefs. They deserve scrutiny, it is a serious matter. Yes, it involves all of us, not just selfish rosy-eyed utopians. It is our future they are betting, too. The stakes are even greater for us since they don’t care.

Saving Roe, and Free-For-All Midterms

Decades ago, Tom Snyder used to have a TV show with the opening line: “So fire up the colortinis, sit back and watch the pictures as they fly through the air.” (from memory)

That was a different time maybe, but you can almost do exactly that today with social media. Watch the pictures and comments as they fly through the air.

All that to showcase Biden’s tweet on Roe Wade and the Supreme Court:

“We have to codify Roe vs. Wade into law.

If the filibuster gets in the way, we should provide an exception to the filibuster to deal with the Supreme Court decision.” — Joe Biden
11:55 AM · Jun 30, 2022·Sprout Social

You got to hand it to Joe. He seems to be going all out war now. Cancel the filibuster, then pack the Court to prevent more of it. They will do ANYTHING to get their radical way.

It isn’t the filibuster in your way, Joe, it’s the Constitution and will of the people. But if you would’ve ever campaigned across the country, you might know that much.

So let’s give Joey a colortini news flash.

Hey sunshine, since 1973 Democrats had a sacred blood pact with SCOTUS. All based on the bloody altar of abortion, and their sanctity of that right.

Maybe now Dems will know what the “law of the land” really is? 50 years of Roe has got to go. It is a Death Cult. Can you dig it, man? Oh, I know that you can.

But then you get other people tweeting comments, too. From Bud and not the wiser one:

“I wish the POTUS could simply declare a national emergency, dissolve SCOTUS for a period of time for reforms to be enacted by congress those being expansion of the court, a set of ethical rules governing behavior of justices and a structure for oversight and enforcement of them!”

Then he adds: “Wouldn’t it![be amazing] Frankly, he might if he had enough Dem support and the support of the military! Cause it is clearly an emergency, SCOTUS is setting up a big steal in the midterms!”

Well, what can you say? From Roe to stealing an election, those Supremes have been busy. Send out the military, it’s an all out emergency to save Roe from death. And “structured oversight” of the High Court decisions? Salivate on that.

Shut down SCOTUS until further notice, call in the military…. ’cause we got a situation here!’ To hell with separation of powers, whatever the hell that is anyway. This is an extreme emergency, nuclear war, man the battle stations. Red Alert!

Would they lock up those 6 ‘robed ones’ in the dungeon? Put them with Jan 6-ers till we figure out what to do with them. Let them rot there a while.

But no time to waste because we got a midterm election to save, too. That is rich. Save the  midterms from Supreme Court usurpers! (I’d love to see that conspiracy theory)

Just when you think you heard it all, no, there’s lots more. Save the country from the Constitution. Suspend rule of law to save us.

I hate to add this part. The guy who coughed up this idea is an Air Force vet and atheist, he says. But since we took a flying leap out the plane at 35,000 feet, what the hell. You only live once. Do all the damage you can while you can, might not have another chance.

So cry me a river when they talk about a coup plot by January 6-ers. These people would abolish a branch of government over grievances. Defy and shred the Constitution, and spit in the face of every voter in the country that disagrees with them. Then what, dare I ask?

One can clearly see, things are not getting better as they go either. Never know what you will see next? Pink drag queens doing the tango on the South Lawn maybe? Who knows?

I didn’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but how much longer and further can it go? Normal is on vacation and she ain’t coming back!

Eulogy To Roe V. Wade

Today, June 24, 2022, Roe V. Wade died after a torturous yet productive life. Roe was imagined and born in a cloakroom of the Supreme Court on January 22, 1973, by a 7-2 decision. Just as her life began there, it also ended there almost 50 years later.

She is survived by a variety of anonymous offspring who declined to comment. Her alias was ‘reproductive rights’ but often operated under the pseudonym of Healthcare. Socially ahead of the times, she identified as a law. Preferred pronouns: me, my, mine.

But for those 50 years she lived large in society, clinics, side streets in neighborhoods and the minds of the American people. She was a force to be reckoned with. Nearly every Supreme Court nominee — or federal judge — was forced to swear on the altar of Roe Wade to protect her ceremonious existence, marinated in estrogen.

She led a religious cult and following; and was nicknamed the ‘sanctity of death’ among critics. However, far from leading a healthy life, she created a toxic environment that ushered evil into every faucet of society masquerading as constitutional legitimacy.

In early life, she established many clinics and offices dedicated to her posterity in low-income and minority neighborhoods under her cousin’s name, Planned Parenthood. The two held various common interests. They were a dynamic duo of power and agendas.

Over recent years, Roe’s own health worsened though some thought her immortal. She had been privately on life support for a while. In finalizing her existence, 5 Justices decided to pull the plug. While the Chief Justice concurred, he instead preferred removing all treatment and judicial sustenance necessary, leaving her to slow yet fatal expiration.

The decision won out, Roe Wade was humanely put out of suffering to the protest of her cult following. The fallout of which is bound to be felt on streets across America.

Ironically, this did not end all the suffering and misery she caused over a 50 year reign. She helped lead a deviant legacy of debauchery across the country. Over 60 million babies were killed as a result of her half-century existence. Roe was very politically active for being terminally diseased. Her fiercest enemy was Personhood.

“Roe v. Wade caused a 4.5% decline in births in states that had not previously legalized abortion. ” – a simple byline in Wikipedia  sums up her legacy.

Despite her wild successes, she was never accepted by a large population in America. Roe was illegitimate and created under false pretenses — the very kind of social ills and illegalities she proposed to exterminate across America.

Finally, the powers that be knew the only viable option to save  Roe Wade was through a formal codification in Congress, which never came to save her demise. But that did not slow her down. Her death count rivaled the Holocaust and Stalin’s and Mao’s evil.

Sadly for her, she had no conscience — born that way. She was billed as the solution to all cultural problems. Her life estate was quite extensive. Roe held sufficient layers of control over all power and leaders in the country. Still Roe was terminally flawed from creation.

Though Roe V. Wade is now gone, the process of abortion she enshrined will live on without its flamboyant maître d’of evil, and living large in the minds of her adherents.

Unfortunately, she falsely altered the minds of most of the cult. She could do no wrong nor ever die,  even though evil was her raison d’être.

America has been grieving the Roe Wade decision, both politically and socially, for almost 50 years. May she now rest in peace because she didn’t offer any here.

Now a moment of silence for “Roe V Wade is the law of the land.

Ceremonies to be held across the land.

[*^Correction: I initially said 6-3 decision but was corrected, 5-4.]

Schumer’s Whirlwind Shows Up

Remember when Senator Schumer attacked and threatened the Supreme Court Justices, calling out Kavanaugh and Gorsuch by name at a rally outside the Court?

“I want to tell you Gorsuch, I wanna tell you Kavanaugh: You have released the whirlwinds and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you….. if you go through with these awful decisions!”

One of Schumer’s whirlwinds showed up at Justice Kavanaugh’s home early Wednesday, prepared to assassinate Kavanaugh and possibly his family. He was arrested.

Just tell them Schumer sent you, that ought to take of it. No harm no foul.  Schumer was silent Wednesday and Mitch McConnell relayed the story in the Senate.

Agenda-Driven Agenda

There is a very tight circle on the Left, where their ends and the means eventually merge. We normally criticize both ends and means but aren’t they actually the same thing?

We always say the Left believes in any means toward their ends, but they are really one common goal. Their objective is to achieve political power by any means necessary. Then use the power to accomplish their political objectives, which is permanent control of power to achieve their political means. That’s a nice, cozy circular mission.

It is all one thing — a political agenda, for the purposes of political ideology. The agenda is their ideology. That may seem a minor point but it really is a major one in the art of radicalism as a means and end. We should start seeing it as the same.

The lesson is always that history repeats itself but nowhere has this theorem been more obvious than in the last few years. It’s hard to look around and ignore the signs. At a certain level it is undeniable. It should give anyone pause.

On Sunday, Mark Levin made an excellent point. The old story is that Stalin and Trotsky became rivals. Eventually Stalin finally got Trotsky killed, who believed in a permanent state of revolution. In that power-hungry world, killing one’s rivals becomes almost an inevitable necessity. What a tangled web … spoiler alert.

Anyway, the point being a perpetual state of revolution naturally has its own problems. It would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, for any nation to survive in a permanent state of revolution. But isn’t that exactly what the left pursues currently? Revolution without end. “Viva la Revolution!” (of, by and for the purpose of revolution) And isn’t that the whole point of it as well? By George, I think they’ve got it.

Activist Nation

We are now an activist nation. That is not new, or nothing you didn’t know but it has been raised to a new level. The radical left has finally attained the ultimate in activism at the judicial branch, which already had problems with activism.

The one element of the Judicial branch that retained integrity and enjoyed wide public respect was the Supreme Court. That has been eviscerated. A leaker, apparently on the staff of one of the justices, has gone rogue to reveal a majority opinion 2 months before it was supposed to be released.

Of course radicals and leftists — really the same thing — have no problems with this. In fact they celebrated the leak and leaker immediately. One Obamafile, Brian Fallon, hot on the internet response squad, noted that it is time the curtain is torn down.

“SCOTUS leaks are good. Elite lawyers on both the left and right treating the Court as precious all these years have just been giving cover to an institution that is wholly unaccountable. Rip the veil off.”

So there is not even an illusion to sacred respect for the purpose of the Supreme Court, which is to interpret law and the Constitution not create it. And Roe Wade was just that, an opinion — not law.   But nevertheless it was given the essence of law up to the point where Democrats made nominees to the Court swear on the altar of Roe v Wade.

But, as the leak portends, the Court is now prepared to issue an opinion overruling the false legitimacy and sanctity of Roe and Casey. Never mind that they were two of the worst decisions it had issued but which lasted nearly 50 years. This ruling, if it comes out that way, will remove all that. Yet the damage has been done, 50 years of it.

So the Left went to the nuclear option by blowing up the integrity of the Court to preemptively and prematurely leak a decision. The left will brand it illegitimate like everything else they disagree with. By the time it is officially rolled out, it will be stained by the protests and not be given the legitimacy it deserves — by design.

We don’t know the limits of the violence that will follow one event disgracing the Court because there are none. And all the empty slogans will flow like “this is what democracy looks like” or “no justice no peace.”

But it already set off demands to pack the court. From one egregious assault on the High Court right on to the next — at breakneck speed.

Thanks to the unjustified act of one leaker who went off like a sleeper cell in a crowded theater, the rest of us have to live with the results. An egregious act of defiance the Left cares nothing about. They were quick to politicize and weaponize it, almost as if planned. Democrats are fundraising on it.

What does all this mean?

Let’s see what the radical, Democrat Left wants for the modern day woman. They want them to be subjects of the state. They require full compliance with the government with vaccine policy — no exceptions. The radical Left wants women to turn their children over to the state under the auspices of education. No questions asked.

They want women to realize that not only do they not have autonomy over their bodies, or their children, but that women have no rightful claim even on gender or womanhood either. And for purposes of sports and women’s competition, they must be subject to men competing as women in athletics.

Today’s modern woman must have no exclusive claims on giving birth or having babies. And no individual identity. So women’s reproductive rights are not exclusive to women anymore. Having menstrual cycles are now endured by men as well.

Birthing has become a man or woman process. Personally, I’m glad they took that one back from the clutches of delusional women. Where did they ever get that exclusive idea in the first place? All these things were the accepted terms of womenhood in the past.

No more!

Leftists simply redefined what it means to be a woman. They also delegitimized biology, which is a construct of the human brain cells, not anatomy. Gender is therefore fluid and applies to any variation one deems it, despite physical anatomy.

Just call it one more breakthrough of modern science. So don’t be upset, we only expanded the possibilities and potential of the modern woman. She is an evolving species or subset of human beings.

But she is necessarily bound by the power of the state to ensure that evolution for survival. In that sense, she is dependent on the hand of the state. So she must support and vote for the Party that facilitates it all. She is mentally and physically tied to the aparatus.

Welcome to the new woman 2.0. Fluidity means fluidity. Updates to follow as necessary.

In other news: more and more men are having abortions too.

Saving Sanity In The Biden Era?

The Democrats are using Orwell’s 1984 as a blueprint instead of a satire. Now they have instituted a Ministry of Truth. Of course they wouldn’t call it that, they would rather endow it with the name Misinformation Disinformation Governance Board.

Governing free speech is apparently so popular.

So they are rolling out their ministry of truth to combat, supposedly, all kinds of misinformation — or what they deem as misinformation. (anything they don’t like or agree with.) Ah, what an incestuous web they weave. What sparked this ? You might say it has been in the works a while.

Obama had truth squads and his brownshirt army who were out to keep the record straight. You had 911 Truthers to begin with, who were also part of the left.

But they now incorporated it formally into the administration. What more prominent place to put it than within Homeland Security? Since they keep repeating our greatest threat to the homeland is right-wing extremists, it gives away how they plan to use it.

You might expect such a bureau in some authoritarian regime but here it is in the US. “They’ll never get away with it” becomes another empty mantra along with all their other revisions to our government. They do it and therefore it is. Could there be a Constitutional challenge that tells them “no?” But what are the odds it will be knocked down?

Remember all the czars Obama appointed? Who would stop him? We now will have a department that codifies the network the Left has built among the Silicon Valley social media, to silence any political opposition.

And speaking of social media, what better timing for it than as Truth Social opened to the public? Could they have had that platform in mind? Then Elon Musk buys Twitter threatening their monopoly on censoring information. The Left is screaming over that like when Hillary lost the election.

Adding more insult to the left — as every Tweet from Elon now does — Musk tweeted about the political paradigm alignment. Well, the left jumped to interpret that as a defining of the country, which the Left jealously guards as their inherent right to do. Only they can define the country. So that offended them both ways.

But the image he used was simple and made a point. Here it is.

And that is all it took…. off to the races.

You might say Elon Musk also has some unorthodox ideas for Twitter, sure to set off fireworks — both literally and figuratively. But that’s a subject for another time. This is purely about the political paradigm Musk referenced.

For now, Elon swung at the fences with this image the Left was quick to try to pigeonhole. Many people agreed with his description of where he was on the spectrum of politics. (that was the purpose) The Left hyperventilated about that along with his description in the image that painted the Left as running further and further off the far left scale.

So that prompted someone like Matthew Dowd to respond with a description of where the country is. Here is that assault on reality.

Matthew Dowd
@matthewjdowd

“The truth is, yes the Dems have become more progressive as the country has, but the GOP has moved towards autocracy and further away from “equality and justice for all”. I would ask everyone to acknowledge this factual reality as they discuss the political landscape.”

8:47 AM · Apr 29, 2022

Get that, blame the country that it is going with progressives.

But we know the country got behind Trump and has trended to the conservative side of the spectrum. The country certainly is not behind the issues or ideas they have.

He wishes everyone would acknowledge that fact … er big lie? Autocracy right?

Only so much time, how sinister they really are. The pendulum has actually swung against the left. Under any poll they seem to be loosing support. But they skip down the yellow brick road acting like everyone is with them. People are running the other way.

Schools, the economy, inflation, socialism, green new deal, open borders, crime, anti-police. The people are not supporting their positions. They are running from them.

What started this defining the politics of the country syndrome? A simple Tweet from Elon Musk on his personal place on the spectrum. Though he seems to have a pretty good grip on what has happened in the country. How long till the Ministry of Truth takes on the subject to have the final “progressive” word?

Czar Of Free Speech

Obama promptly gets called out for demanding gov’t intervention over ‘harmful’ online content after promoting free speech

Former President Barack Obama claimed Thursday that he is “pretty close” to a First Amendment “absolutist.”

But in the same speech, Obama demanded more action from social media companies to combat “disinformation” and even suggested the federal government should get involved.

What are the details?

During a speech at Stanford University about the dangers of social media and hyper-connectivity to democracy, Obama said Big Tech needs more regulation.

Obama claimed that content moderation “doesn’t go far enough” because it does not prevent the distribution of “clearly dangerous content.”

Thus, stopping the spread of “potentially harmful content” should not be “left solely to private interests,” Obama added, explaining that Big Tech platforms “need to be subject to some level of public oversight and regulation.”

Obama explained what he believes that regulation should be:

A regulatory structure, a smart one, needs to be in place, designed in consultation with tech companies, and experts and communities that are affected, including communities of color and others that sometimes are not well represented here in Silicon Valley, that will allow these companies to operate effectively while also slowing the spread of harmful content. In some cases, industry standards may replace or substitute for regulation, but regulation has to be part of the answer.

The former president said that in the same way food processors are subject to governmental regulatory inspections, so social media companies must be inspected to ensure they are “following certain safety standards that we as a country — not just them — have agreed are necessary for the greater good.”

“I’m pretty close to a First Amendment absolutist. I believe that, in most instances, the answer to bad speech is good speech,” Obama said. “I believe that the free, robust, sometimes antagonistic exchange of ideas produces better outcomes and a healthier society.”

“The First Amendment is a check on the power of the state. It doesn’t apply to private companies like Facebook or Twitter, any more than it applies to editorial decisions made by the New York Times or Fox News. Never has,” he added.

FBI Favorability In The Toilet

More validation comes out on that pesky public opinion. Now it seems many people believe the FBI operate as a personal Gestapo for Joey Baby and his administration. Now I wonder where on earth they got that idea?

A Rasmussen poll says

Voter Approval of FBI Declines

1/04/22

Fewer voters now trust the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and many believe the agency is acting as President Joe Biden’s “personal Gestapo.”

A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 46% of Likely U.S. voters have a favorable impression of the FBI, including 15% who have a Very Favorable view of the agency. That’s down from May 2020, when 60% had a favorable impression of the FBI. Forty-seven percent (47%) now view the FBI unfavorably, including 26% who have a Very Unfavorable impression.

Just where do Americans get that crazy idea? Now do the Dept of Justice.

Biden Should Listen To The Voices?

There is hardly any danger greater in this country, to this country, than the mindset of the Left. (Include liberals because they all merge)

To make the case, I saw the perfect demonstration bringing it all together. Tuesday, The Five on Fox were talking about Biden’s low poll numbers.

Right on cue with talking points, Richard Fowler, consummate gloating leftist, chimed in to defend Biden. He said those people who did not support Biden in the election will never support or vote for Biden again.

So then Biden should not talk to them. Joe should only pay attention to the people who got him elected. He needs to listen to the base, and ignore other people who do not support him. (just to paraphrase it)

All right, except listen to what his base says and what they want. So let’s test drive this assertion all the way out.

Joe Biden should listen to his base, and what they want him to do:

  • Open the border to limitless immigration.
  • Abolish ICE
  • End fossil fuel energy
  • Defund and eliminate police
  • Raise taxes on everyone.
  • End bail and arrest of criminals
  • Stop drilling for oil and gas
  • Shut down and remove pipelines
  • Pay illegals welfare for coming here.
  • Federalize elections.
  • Push radical sexual agendas in schools.
  • Government funded abortion.Provide late-term abortion up to DOB
  • Push critical race theory in schools against parents’ will. (label parents terrorists)
  • They want Biden to use executive action for a 5 trillion dollar socialist bill, or on anything else they want. Ignore separation of powers.
  • Re-imagine the Federal Reserve. (politicize it into a Marxist tool.)
  • They want to pack the Supreme Court.
  • They want to cancel 1.5 trillion in student debt.
  • They want to empty prisons.
  • They want to gut the 1st and 2nd Amendments.
  • They want to protect criminals over victims.
  • Rewrite due process.
  • Abolish the filibuster.
  • Politicize Justice Dept. to attack, monitor and track political opponents.
  • Use executive action to force social media to control their political enemies, and enforce their political agenda.
  • They want him to cut the military budget.
  • They want to enact full socialized medicine.
  • They want to abolish state election rights and powers
  • Codify the pandemic/emergency voting processes.
  • Abolish the electoral college.
  • Create amnesty for over 35 million illegal immigrants.

.And that is a quick priority list with more radicalization in the pipeline to come, always more. (not to mention their radical foreign policies)

Listen to and act on that. This is what the President should only listen to. And naturally he must ignore protests or any voices against their radical agenda. Canceling out student debt is at the top of their demands.

How’s all that sound for Joe’s listening room? A little polarizing and divisive?

Truth MIA: The Bitter-Enders Return

Shuffling along forcing myself to believe in some sense of euphoric reality that is yet to come, if any day now. But living under that cloud of belief only primes one for more disappointment, when every day nothing comes.

It has been this way, or seemed to be, since this impersonator of a US president took operative control of the WH.  His main mission was to continue the deception of the last ten years. Or since Obama was elected the first time. The mission now is to pick up where they left off in 2016, but also incorporate the new resistance deception from their four-year long coup. Lucky for them, it only adds another element of blame to their hate arsenal.

Now it was openly assailing truth and history, along with anything that got in its bitter way. It is back, more bitter than ever, more determined to defile America.

 

I relish the memory of days when a president was actively working on the people’s behalf to correct the course of a government dangerously off its charted course. And progress was made to rein it in. Though not a day could go by, in those four years, that you could just feel good about it. The perpetual resistance could not allow it.

Constant harassment and resistance voices were all around as I sat wondering what the hell their problem was? After all, the economy was going reasonably well, and policies had  drastically improved since the last serpent of a president was in office. There was a sense things might finally work out or be all right, eventually. There may be light ahead.

But those nagging voices every day, 24/7 wanted to tear down any positive hope welling up from events unfolding in front of our eyes.The hope abolitionists. They plotted to steal every moment of satisfaction and achievement.

Only this time was worse than all the past episodes with the radical leftists nipping at our heels. Now it was such a concerted effort or front they put up that it made it hard to enjoy one happy moment. Never before had they gone to that level. And the fact that they kept up the pace for 4 years under Trump was proof of how persistent they are.

And this time it was aimed not just at the president or those in office they disliked but at the people who supported this welcomed change. They went from being titans of change to the very enemies of change. They would have none of it no matter how good it was. Especially the better it was the angrier they got. They defied anything good. Everything rotten they celebrated. That should have been a clue to anyone paying attention through the four–year nightmare. Somehow they could just not allow good to take hold. We needed to be surrounded by evil.

Of course, even in the riots and violence that followed, soon after Trump was elected, it was as much a spiritual warfare of good vs. evil as it was a physical battle.

Further complicating it, we had government taking sides in the promotion of evil which we had not seen on this scale before. The federal government bureaucracies, linked to the Deep State, dug in their heels in defiance of the administration and policies.

This inter-government feuding made the media and their resistance coalition thrilled to feel so empowered. Judges, whistleblowers, FBI leadership, and a DOJ almost hostile to the White House and administration. At any other place in time, this would have been considered treasonous and not tolerated, but not there. They had plenty of seditious allies everywhere. Never forget that good has an enemy.

Even some in the Republican ranks were actively working in conjunction with the resistance movement. We hadn’t seen that much hostility from within our own country before. The reasons for it were too numerous to mention. What did all their grievances really mean anyway? Those were as phony as the movement they were driving to unseat the president of the United States. Surely, they could eventually drive him out. But they couldn’t. That did not slow or stop them.

They used every resource available to them. They used every branch of power they had access to in hot pursuit of their goal, against the president and will of the people. It was a full-blown coup in process, fought in the pages of the press and in the major media daily. Truth was the first casualty.

But once slayed, truth would not stay down for the count. The collective opposition had no patience for that even as it reared its ugly head in front of them. In fact, they despised the truth as their sworn enemy. They had to keep truth on the mat gasping for air. It had to be killed in its tracks.

They were determined that the lies they were pushing succeed. But this time,  people were  their enemy as well. Before, it was always narrowly focused on individuals but now it was a broad attack on the people and anything that supported fact or truth. It was a stellar example in fighting reality on a massive scale. They did a lot of damage in the process.

The blame America first crowd has gone from anti-America to hating the American people.

 

In the wasteland of the damages they inflicted over the last four years, they resurrect a new president determined to continue the bitter legacy of their former eight years in office. Another vague motto erected, build back better. The Spite House is back with vengeance.

Senator Cotton Grills AG Garland

See Forbes video here at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXDWroXTBwc

Garland is injecting DOJ as a referee and arbiter of the process between people and school boards. The AG is also hyper-concerned with the political process of elections.

Again, political duty calls.

So Garland is also injecting the DOJ into that process to nationalize our political elections. Just the same way he is nationalizing school board meetings into a school board Gestapo, targeting concerned parents. The 1st and 10th amendments are not suggestions.

We dodged a big one when he didn’t get on SCOTUS, especially replacing Justice Scalia.

Keeping The Lies Alive

If it is one thing the Left proves exceptionally competent at it is lying. The other is their ability to stick to it, regardless of what the facts and circumstances say.

In that vein, we have had a full-blown insurrection against the seat of our republic. America is at stake, on the line. They’ve taken over Congress, the White House and every faucet of government. But not by the right. And they are using that power and control against the people, particularly their enemies, to serve the demands of their mobocracy — which knows no limits or boundaries. To radicals, it’s game on.

There is a tired phrase you always hear about how we all should be able to work for common goals. It is ludicrous on its face. It means nothing, and of course it is only talk.

The reality is something entirely different. You would think there are areas people should be able to agree. There are crises and problems you would think people could coalesce on. Not really. It doesn’t stop people from saying it though. No problem is above politics.

If, for example, you have a major border invasion, you would think that would outrage everyone. But no. We see a crises while an open border excites the Left. They want more. We see an energy decline and that only stimulates them. We see lawlessness and they call it justice. They want more. Now tell me why the two sides are not totally incompatible? There is no way those two views can be reconciled. One wants to tear down our country, the other wants to build it up and restore it to the shining city on a hill.

The left believes the hill should be leveled and the only bright lights should be interrogation lamps trained on the people to watch every move they make. Anything the Left perceives as threatening needs to be destroyed, including the Constitution.

We see that same scenario over and over in everything they touch.

 

And now they have determined that a recent rise of parents attending school board meetings, asking questions and voicing complaints, are actually domestic terrorists that need the Patriot Act rolled out on it in order to protect their own cushy, government-fleeced positions along with their political ideology. So they need the DOJ to back them up against political opponents. (enemies)

These leftists want all the power and resources of the federal government aimed directly at their enemies. What good is an insurrection if you don’t enforce it with every muscle you can? (at least from the federal government) Taking prisoners and holding hostages is all part of the warfare tactics. No rules apply to them.

And yet some people can say there are areas where we can all agree. Where, where are those areas? Hasn’t that been disproven? There are still deniers out there.

Leftists tell you all you need to know about them by their reactions. Crises we call catastrophes get gleeful responses from Leftists, or else silence. They pretend they don’t see it. After all, any crisis is only a political opportunity to benefit their political agenda. It’s like following an arsonist around dropping matches as another person douses gas in front of him. (they are the radicals in the streets) And the only finger of blame they use is to point at conservatives or “right–wing extremists,” who are trying to put the fires out.

 

You see it comes down to perception. We actually take their words and ideas seriously, as crazy as those are, and try to apply common sense and reasoning. But that is not what those ideas deserve.

So the other day leftist radicals (otherwise known as Democrats) followed Sen Kyrsten Sinema into a bathroom stall protesting her because she does not fall in line with their radical agenda. (yet)

President Biden is asked about it saying “that is just part of the process.” Whose process? Who does this shit? It’s all about forcing compliance with their rabid political agenda. Of course Biden cannot condemn that. Nancy Pelosi cannot condemn the radicals in her caucus for their hair-brained positions, even when it is unconstitutional or unethical. “They do what they will.”

In Biden’s Speech on Tuesday to union members in Michigan, he characterized Russia and China as watching things move so fast that democracies cannot last.

“My meetings with Putin, my meetings with Xi Jinping and other leaders, they truly believe that we can’t compete in the 21st century because things are moving so fast, democracies take so much time, that they are so divided, that they can’t get together in time to act. They believe they’ll win the day and they can dictate their way forward and leave us behind.”

So democracy cannot move fast enough…..which is why they must follow Senators into bathroom stalls with cameras to get after them. Then he said something more telling.

“They’re betting, not a joke there, they’re betting [that] for the first time we weren’t responding to this inflection point in history, that we’ll fail to rise to the occasion, but you’ve heard me say it a lot of times, it’s never, ever been a good bet to bet against the American people, never. Look, just look back a little ways. After World War II, the United States did what we’re trying to do now, invested in the American people to lead the world.”

Just imagine this: do you think Putin and Xi Jinping are betting that we cannot do what is necessary to destroy our country? Does that sound odd? They are somehow betting that Democrats don’t have the guts to pull the plug on America, when Joe is right there egging on the radicals to do it?

No, the autocrats would be betting on these commie reds to succeed. They would be in sync with radicals’ to undermine Ameirica – and the American dream. Our enemies have to be betting on radicals, not against them.  Is that so hard to grasp with common sense?

In fact, Xi Jinping and Putin are only hoping conservatives or American patriots cannot hold Leftists back from abolishing the American dream. They would be hoping that Biden’s police state and crackdown on freedom and speech succeeds, that Joe can crush dissent. That’s what they would be betting on. Not against the anti-American radicals.

Biden always punctuates his economic theory by suggesting it has never been a good idea to bet against America. Our enemies don’t have to; they bet on Democrats to do it for them — who are betting heavily against America all the time.

So do you think our main problem, for survival, is that our big government apparatus (democracy in their code) is just not moving fast enough for us? Or is speed a problem.

 

One side wants to tear down America, while another wants to restore the Shining City. Which one, choose wisely?

Joe Won’t Say It Isn’t So! He Can’t

Links to a radical racist organization were discovered in guidance on re-opening schools. Jen Psaki announced it was an error and said WH did not agree with this organization.

But they needed to denounce CRT and that organization along with those who support and endorse it. Then tell schools not to employ them. But she didn’t. Press will not press her on it. It doesn’t matter anyway, it’s already done. Add it to the long list of policies.

The exploding invasion on the border. Kama Harris, tasked to deal with it (their own self-imposed effects), said she is working on the root causes. She hasn’t visited Haiti, Senegal,  Ghana, India, Romania or Africa yet — to talk about root causes.

  • Aid for farmers was made into a race preference endorsing overt discrimination.
  • Aid for restaurants turned into a policy of racist discrimination.
  • WH said an art dealer would officiate art sales to make sure purchasers of Hunter Biden’s blow-art are kept anonymous. (just keep the public in the dark)
  • Illegals are being transported through the border and shipped across the country into red states. Encouraging even more to come, from around the globe.
  • It doesn’t matter that Fentanyl and other drugs are pouring across the border.
  • Biden gives illegals aid & sanctuary for storming the border and breaking our laws.
  • Military stand down, purge of political enemies/ extremists.
    Encourage people to report fellow citizens to authorities.
  • The White House is working with social media like Facebook to crack down on his political opponents and spreaders of “misinformation.”
  • Actively spying on Americans using various means, in real time.
  • Increase debt to 38 trillion over 10 years.
  • Biden said his giant 4 trillion dollar spending bonanza would lower inflation.
  • Encourage and support CRT in schools, in alliance with and aiding Teachers’ unions.
  • Biden shut down Keystone XL pipeline, ANWR, and is working on stopping other pipelines. (you can’t just kill one pipeline — it is extremely addictive)
  • DOJ dropped investigations into the nursing home deaths.
  • Frustrate the will of people and their sovereign election process.
  • Biden wants to directly fund Planned Parenthood and its abortion agenda.
  • Biden nominated a radical eco-terrorist to Bureau of Land Management.
  • WH schemed with unions to keep schools closed, write policy, to benefit unions.
  • Biden put the most radical leftists he could get to key positions in the DOJ.
  • Lie:Merrick Garland is no moderate but a partisan hack for Biden.
  • Biden plans to expand the IRS by 80 bln and add 80 thousand new agents.
  • Biden first gave Putin a Start extension for 5 years. Nothing in return
  • Biden opened Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline and screwed Ukraine.
  • Biden’s administration is working to undermine and roll back sanctions on Iran, and to reenter the failed Iran deal — whatever US concessions it takes.
  • Despite Biden’s lies on his COVID agenda, illegals are importing Delta variant across America, particularly to red states, facilitated by the lawless administration.
  • All this after he participated in the conception of a coup against a former president.

These are only a few and they are not mistakes, errors in judgment or accidents. Notice also that Biden did not run on any of this crap. He has no mandate for any of it.

He refused to answer questions from his basement campaign on stuff like: Keystone Pipeline, a war on energy, fracking, court -packing or open borders. Remember his and Democrats selling feature for Scranton Joey was that he was going to bring back normalcy, not further divide and radicalize our country and government.

Joe Biden would never condemn any of this, because they are his own policies.

 

Now he goes to VA  to campaign for Terry McAuliffe and talks about the Declaration of Independence, again. One of his favorite lines. But first, he gets hecklers protesting the pipeline. No, they weren’t protesting his Keystone closure but against pipelines. He said to ignore them. Well, kind of like how Joe ignores the illegals’ invasion on the border.

He went into his familiar Declaration diatribe saying: (NY Post)

Biden also accused Republicans of offering “nothing more than fear, lies and broken promises.””

“The United States is based on — the only country in the world based on the proposition, ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident,’ that all women and men are created equal, endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” he said.

We’ve never met the test, but we’ve never walked away from it like the Republicans have.”

What a whopper. He even says it in VA, where the KKK directly controlled the Democrat Party and apparatus. It was Republicans that finally had to break the KKK’s hold.

It is one thing for them to lie about everything else, but when they lie about racism it is a special, malicious and insidious lie – damaging history and reality. The worst kind of lie.

Then there is the fears, lies and broken promises. He says that while telling the biggest lie of all about racism. Like Obama, he turns everything into a racist argument. Who does he think he is? We know who he is… Satan’s little helper, progressively Marxist, Joe.

Fears, lies and broken promises…. isn’t that exactly what Biden’s entire platform is? Fears and lies is really all he does. He must be the Son of Perdition.

Lifestyle Of A Nation

This article is more of a story. It also serves an ode to the 4th of July. I say story but it is actually a narrative, which is the way the Left operates. It unfolds more as a story though the narratives drive it.

Reimagining all the beautiful people.

As the pandemic escalated in New York, in listening to Gov Cuomo, a word popped out in his statement deliberately that is a euphemism of the left. He may not have invented it but he evoked it. He said when the pandemic is over we need to reimagine the way government operates. (paraphrased) He also applied it to hospitals and healthcare system in New York.

Now that word has been used many times. The Left uses it all the time. They say we have to “reimagine“: schools, criminal justice, bail, energy, economy, prisons, police, law enforcement, border security, the Supreme Court, suburbs, etc. Everything. That is a good thing to Dems? It never is.

Cuomo simply cut to the chase to reimagine government. But that has long been the goal of the left. Remember Obama lectured on transformational change. They were more concerned about instituting change than defining it. “Change you can believe in.”

Along with all this reimagining going on, they also want to reimagine our rights, particularly the first and second amendments already under assault. It would be hard to find anything Leftists do not favor reimagining because, in their view, that would always end up to their benefit.

Transformational change was the buzzword in 2010, and reimagine is the new term of art. First it was abolish the police, then it shifted to defunding the police. But it is the same thing. Now defunding has taken on baggage and reimagining sounds better, vague and neutral though it isn’t. They still have the same radical ideas. Transformation is now reimagine.

 

Lifestyle changes are the prescription and destination.

Normally in rehabilitation or addictions, the fix involves a lifestyle change to be successful. Professionals accept this too. Without lifestyle change the rehab can be temporal or even fail. So it seems a necessary step. However, institutional and cultural change agents want to force that effective lifestyle change on us to accommodate their radical transformational change.

That means get used to crime and its effects. We must adjust accordingly. The bail reform and corrupted justice system demands we adjust our lifestyle to fit it. The border problems and those who caused them are demanding we get used to it. That requires we alter our lifestyle.

Rather than criminals or aliens altering their lifestyle, they insist we change ours to accommodate them. The Left agrees, our lifestyle needs to change. When they change ours instead they accomplished their basic goal.

First, they radically reimagine institutions, our government and systems. Then predicable problems and failures occur. (blame is only a transitional gimmick) When outcries pour out, we are expected to change our lifestyle, not the other way around.

The problems become institutionalized, till we are forced to accept that as the new normal. But whatever happens, and it is never good, we cannot go back. So they demonize our past to discourage any return. Along the way, our moral ground has shifted. Of course all of this is intentional by design.

We should not be outraged at radical prosecutors but learn to accept consequences of high crime rates and lack of law enforcement. Accept lawlessness. What can you do?

Finally, when the lifestyle change is complete, our nation has been changed to fit — not the situation to fit the nation. Just like with individual agenda items, we cannot go back. Radicals are not about to let that happen. Then they will build further on those. Meanwhile, the word reform has morphed into the new code word for corrupt. Transformational decline.

They will continue to demonize, attack to bury everything in the past. While all this goes on in the present, there will be some people debating over whether this is intentional, severe incompetence, or just malicious? But that doesn’t matter; it is all intentional like the problems stemming from the border. They have ways to build upon chaos making them even worse, not better. Radicalism is only a means not the end result.

Naturally, as one would expect, managing the decline of a country requires a hell of a lot of reimagining. And that is what it is about.

Some Say Treason

In a recent interview, Victor Davis Hanson made a profound comment. He simply said you have to believe America is better than any alternative. If we don’t believe that, we cannot be….. probably won’t be and possibly don’t deserve to be. (I added that last part)

Because if you believe that other countries are just as good, which is moral relativism, you have already ceded the debate and battle. And if you think, in the sense of governing, that other countries are better than us, then you have forfeited the entire paradigm.

“But any fair critic can see the [1776] report’s unifying message is that we are a people blessed with a singular government and history, that self-critique and moral improvement are innate to the American founding and spirit, and that America never had to be perfect to be both good and far better than the alternatives.” — VDH on the 1776 Commission’s Report

Well, is that our objective just to be equal to alternatives to America? I don’t think so. Other countries don’t look at themselves that way. We always hear Bernie Sanders say other counties have a more  advanced healthcare system than ours, that European countries are better on economics with better economic systems, on and on.

How could any sitting US Senator say and, worse still, believe those things? Notice how the Bern is always comparing us and asserting that others are better than us. We just need to be more like them. That sort of gives away his argument.

Imagine for a moment how one of their old, central  arguments frames Socialism and Marxism as a struggle. (it sets the tone of the movement) But in reality he’s already agreed they are better than us. What was the point of America again?

We simply must believe we are better than alternatives, if you do want a struggle at all.

I mean if you don’t believe we are the better than any alternative in the world, then what is the whole point? Why bother doing what we are doing, and what is the purpose of it?

Sadly that is the problem with the left today, they forfeited that principle and lost their belief in this country and in our system. They have already accepted that proposition. Contrary to that principle, they actually reject the idea America is exceptional.

Subsidies To Nowhere

Through all the years writing in my spare time, the one thing that always kept me going is that there are so many great titles out there just waiting to be used. So I’ll try to make this one worth it. And pardon my French when I error on the side of simplicity.

 

The Fourth of July is coming again and poses the same quandary to me as last year. That is having barbecues and celebrating it with pomp and circumstance, the way we could not really do last year, is great for everyone to do. We all do it our own way.

What bugs me most is how some people can celebrate Independence Day of the greatest country on earth and the very next day be back tearing apart the foundations that made it all possible. Do those two things go together? They don’t seem to.

Another thing gnawing at my intestines at the moment is Biden scheming a 6 trillion dollar budget. It’s a killer in ways only economists can articulate but it is a disaster. Except Democrats frame it, as they do all their huge spending, as a plan to save the country. Well, save it from what? How can both be so? If you do something that will destroy the country, how can you claim to be saving it? But it is that way with all their plans.

Really, their ideas are consistent at least but consistently wrong. Their instincts are always bad. Some people can make rotten out of something good. That appears to be what they are doing to this country. I hope I am not oversimplifying that.

Taking advantage of crises is what they always say, then no wonder they have to create a crisis first. Look at the border. It is hard to celebrate the Fourth of July with the border wide open. No one seems to care in the White House. Oh, the left would find some way to make even the open border sound like a good or positive thing. They would defy the idea of independence insinuating the independence of people coming here. Isn’t that what they always do, redefine the problem? Or they claim it is not really a problem. How about creating another to keep that one company?

 

But we have heard it all before. The border is only a crisis to us because it is no problem to them. They want it this way. They want it to get so rotten and overrun we are forced into doing anything to stop it. So they could claim amnesty for millions of illegals. So they could expand the country’s welfare and safety net to the breaking point in order to accomplish their objectives. Take it to the limit used to be a good Eagles song but has become the mantra of the Left. This is radicalism’s dirty little secret that is not too secret anymore. Cloward-Piven Strategy strikes again. How many times can you employ that strategy?

Back before the election and soon after I was hearing self-avowed socialists on the air telling comrade Democrats that deficits don’t matter. They said the new doctrine is deficits don’t matter and they should not hear any complaints about deficits or the debt.

You know what that gets. They want and need to spend with no worry or threat of consequences. Now’s the time, deficits don’t matter. How do you compute that? It only works if you can put the country into such a chaotic state no one can think of deficits.

It is radicalism pure and simple. How can you claim to be saving the country by destroying it? That would seem a tough sell anywhere.

 

Biden went overseas under the rubric that they were selling democracy. How so? Should you have to sell it? It turns out what they are selling at home is not republican democracy but a socialism mobocracy. So why would they go overseas to sell something they are fleeing from at home? Make any sense? Again, this is radicalism.

We are in a dangerous point I never thought I would see. It is crazy If you have to sell something here at home. Well, we now have to sell people in this country on America. When we have to do that we might be losing. I never thought we would actually have to convince a big chunk of the country on American freedom.

I always thought it was something we could agree on and did, even through the political battles. When it came down to it, we could all agree on the idea of America. Now that idea is in danger, being replaced by ideas foreign to what the founders envisioned. They warned us against those. They warned about mobocracy, too. But here we are drawing short straws for freedom and the chances are not looking real great at the moment.
