What’s The Point Of Name-Calling?

I’ve been called all kinds of names by Obama, Pelosi and Biden. But being called names by George Bush sort of takes the cake. Not that I don’t expect it from him, too.

Remember it started with McCain calling us agents of intolerance.(pre-2000) Even that was only warming up for McCain’s wrath against conservatives..

I don’t mind so much anymore. It is kind of flattering by now to be such a high target on Bush’s list. I mean you never hear him call liberals or Democrats names. In fact, he has little criticism for them at all. Nothing.

It is pretty revealing whom people choose to pin with their worst labels. But was Bush really ever a conservative at all? He is following the McCain, Obama, Biden formula.

So we get nativist, bigot, hater, intolerant and all the rest. He laces his top speeches with critique about us. What gives? I mean why all the anger at us? It’s not like we are jihadis.

That is the point, he can criticize us but then tempers his words on evil barbarians. But then he can go even a step further. When he does have to criticize evil monsters if a situation calls for it, like the 9/11 anniversary, he must also slur it right on over to those right-wing conservatives. Heap it on them real good.

So what does he do? He compares the mentality of the 9/11 terrorists – now that is the correct term for what they were – to us conservatives and regular Americans.

In his speech from the Shanksville 9/11 Memorial ceremony, he tosses in his best criticism. Is that the time and place for it? No, but that doesn’t matter. It is a public opportunity for open ridicule and, buddy, he is not going to pass it up.

“And we have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders, but from violence that gathers within. There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home.

But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit.”

Ah, the same foul spirit – get that euphemism for evil? Isn’t that nice how he works that in? What does that have to do with 9/11 or the sentiments of those who attacked us?

Never mind. He goes on in his domestic criticism saying:

“I come without explanations or solutions. I can only tell you what I have seen. ” — G W Bush 9/11 speech.

No, we are getting his inherent bias and slander about us, not what he has seen. It is his opinion camouflaged as fact. But then he does a strange two-step to at least recognize the objects of the ceremony — honoring brave citizens.

“At a time when nativism could have stirred hatred and violence against people perceived as outsiders, I saw Americans reaffirm their welcome of immigrants and refugees. That is the nation I know. (Applause.)” /…

“Twenty years ago, terrorists chose a random group of Americans, on a routine flight, to be collateral damage in a spectacular act of terror. The 33 passengers and 7 crew of Flight 93 could have been any group of citizens selected by fate. In that sense, they stood in for us all.”

But wait, might any ordinary Americans be the type of people he refers to as “nativists?”

So he has a little problem when he criticizes fellow Americans. He praises them when he wants to and reserves his harshest criticism for Americans. Does it make sense?

It’s bad enough when we hear this bullshit from the Left at every opportunity — when they are the ones who are racists and bigots — but hearing it come at us from Bush is pretty rich. Especially when Bush’s own bigotry will not allow him to criticize the Left, terrorist thugs, or radical Islamists on Jihad.

It is the “same foul spirit,” indeed. So he seems to have taken a page from the Left’s hymnal lately. They have been calling us Taliban. And Bush’s speech went over with them huge. They loved the references. He finds more comfort attacking us than the Taliban.

From nativists to foul spirits, Bush can sure sling them. While doing it all just to preserve and protect his precious legacy from any criticism. We’re disposable deplorables.

It was not George W Bush’s speech that offended me so much, but the fact it was written and scripted that way. He seems to have a lot in common with the lunatic Left.  The only time we hear from George W. Bush is when he is attacking fellow Americans.

Open Letter To National Enemies

Please allow me to take a moment to speak directly to an often-neglected audience. There may still be some goat-herding enthusiasts or some freedom-seething population out there, or just America haters listening, otherwise plotting the demise of the US.

If one of the goals you are waiting for is an apology by an American, about and for America; then be forewarned you will not be receiving it from me, or others like me. You may get one from someone but it will not necessarily be from any real American at heart.

That is because it is not something real Americans typically do, to appease devious miscreants and thugs in that part of the world. The rosy day when American types look up to Cuba, China and Venezuela as the models in governance is not going to happen.

Now then, you can continue waiting and waiting in perpetuity but it will not be coming anytime. And likewise, nor will we be conceding to, or reconciling ourselves with, your form of whatever it is you people do in reality gone wild.

But that applies just the same whether you happen to live in Beijing, Baghdad, Tehran, Havana, Afghanistan, or gasp even right here in America.

So I do caution you that if you think and believe you are hearing apologies from some in America, you better think again about who that source is. Imposters are out there.

That would include this 46th resident of the Oval Office. Do not be fooled by the title, office or status, they are not speaking for genuine America or Americans at large.

That also goes for, say, those who even sport a false moniker of “no apologies” publicly while adopting popular appeasement lingo. You should not be deceived by that because real Americans are not fooled in the slightest by any of that radical posturing.

Thanks for listening.

As It Was 9/11

In view of the upcoming 20th anniversary of 9/11, I thought it would be good to it a little different than normal.

By that I mean in a lot of ways, differently. Not the same. This day has taken on a format and semblance on every anniversary. One of the most critical has always been simply remembering events. For some people it means remembering events of that day they experienced and how the attack on 9/11 intersected with those.

Well, the central 9/11 events then become the driving force but the secondary, personal events become the effects or collateral symptoms. I get it. That matters a lot.

It’s how we remember in associations.

This has always been done in various ways. For me, it has always been kind of sacred and I have not widely shared my personal story about the day. Everyone has one. And everyone’s story is important, at least to them, and no one story is more important than another one. That’s my view.  They are all important – both individually and collectively.

So my story is not the issue. I dwell more on the larger picture while keeping the personal sacred. However, there is a lot of common ground in the 9/11events, beyond remembering what you were doing.

It started off the most common of days, as normal as can be. This is the strange thing about it that it was so darn normal. Well, why wouldn’t it be? But almost too normal.

And that normal was breached by an evil that broke through our security bubble we had all taken for granted, which also was normal. The picture perfect day could not have been more normal along with our plans. A normalcy that was disturbed enough to question if we would ever have normal again? It made us long for the normal, rather than getting bored by it. We seemed unsure if normal could return?

Our sense of security, as we knew it, was popped in moments by the events themselves, unfolding in canons of news coverage hour by hour. Our personal world was invaded by outside events. It didn’t matter what you were doing, it had a personal effect on you.

That is why the personal became so important and yet so tied to national events. The two were merged in a way we had never felt before. Small, mundane things became trivial.

So there is a lot more in that day than just what happened and the sequence of events. And all were memorialized at the time in such a way only trauma and major significance can do.

 

Yet it is sacred that our national innocence was stolen at a time we were feeling most normal was surreal irony. What followed would become the most abnormal experience imaginable. But the reality was, prior to the attacks, conditions only added insult.

So my day, personally, is irrelevant as that goes. I could tell you what I was doing since it is etched in my mind. It is as if someone placed a new blank tape real in my memory just to record those events and what I did, every move and place.

It was preserved and stored in a place to be kept unedited with all the feelings recorded as well. Over the years, I have kept it as it was, then, in that segment of time. I treasured it, respected it, consulted it, and cherished it as my individual copy of history.

No one else had it, no one duplicated it. No one had access to it. And it was as good as anyone’s. I coveted the facts speckled over it. Others would have those facts, too, but no one had my original copy. It was as valuable as other copies, priceless all. Together, they make up a national treasury

A national library of feelings, facts and fears.

And few times over the years have I experienced those same feelings and concerns as that day and weeks that followed. Maybe a glimpse here and there but not on that same level.

One day, as if it were a time capsule, it will be opened for deeper reflection but that day has not yet come. It is sacred. I like my privacy and have a healthy respect for the sacred. Well, it may ferment like wine or get musty from sitting but it will always be there. It cannot be lost or destroyed. It is safe.

 

Some people did something…“– Rep. Ilhan Omar to CAIR on March 23, 2019.

Are Colortinis Back In Style?

Does it seem to anyone else that since January 20th, everything that could go wrong has? Indeed it is how I feel. No lists are necessary from national security to economic, to schools to culture galore.

It could take your breath away. Some people probably just “sit back and,” as Tom Snyder used to say, “watch the pictures as they fly through the air.” So “fire up a colortini,” as he referred to them.

I explained to a good friend, who is a centenarian, a while ago: if we see a resurgence or revival now, one thing we can be sure of is that it must be God because it can’t be anything we did to cause it. There will be no doubt about it. (but there are always naysayers.)

This person has been a reliable Christian consultant over the years, who fears for what is ahead for the US now. It says a lot about the times we are in. There comes a point when it is up to God.

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.

Wokeness Is Reality

What if…. Start now with something so basic that you never before would have had to explain it to someone. But today you feel compelled to. And it is not because people are dumb or dumber than before or that they don’t know.

They don’t know because they’ve been conditioned. Reality is only their truth and the perception of their truth upon everyone else. Their truth is shallow; it is ideology. It is a mixture of the top popular wokeness ideas in history. Since this strain is a relatively new phenomenon, it is a bunch of new ideas all mixed together. Yet it all leads to places of old.

But old ideas are relics to be destroyed under this concept.

Wikipedia (source for all things today) says:

Woke is a term that refers to a perceived awareness of issues that concern social justice and racial justice. It derives from the African-American Vernacular English expression stay woke.

First used in the 1940s, woke has resurfaced in recent years as a concept that symbolizes perceived awareness of social issues and movement. By the late 2010s, woke had been adopted as a more generic slang term associated with left-wing politics, progressive or socially liberal causes such as anti-racism, LGBT rights, feminism and environmentalism. It has also been the subject of memes, ironic usage and criticism for its methods and consequences. Its widespread use since 2014 is a result of the Black Lives Matter movement and the death of George Floyd in 2020.

What is this jabber about? History has not yet recorded the effects of this new wokeness on society. But by the first impressions, it will not be good. We still don’t know how far it can go yet. We can only hope that, while every popular idea seems to have a shelf life, this one too has an expiration date. But up to this point anyway, we cannot know that.

We can’t say for certainty that this one will die off, as other things have, that senses might prevail. What senses? That is because this is to replace sense or common sense specifically. Well, what is common sense anyway but a collection of biases supported by collective people? But who says common sense prevails? Or that common sense does take root?

Under these current conditions that is not a foregone conclusion anymore. Common sense indeed can be abolished if enough people decide it should be. We can make rules against common sense. We can disallow it.

Now that would be a very radical experiment or goal to try. But adherents are intent on doing just that. Who really cares what the purpose of it all is, if the predominant goal is only to tear down conventional ideas and reason? Where does that all leave you?

And since nothing really happens in this world in a vacuum, what is the relative effect of this in the world? We cannot even estimate that.

You see, strange as all this talk sounds, like some mumble jumble, it is the same kind of talk one could hear on a given day about what is going on. Things don’t make sense. Motives and culture itself seem deliberately twisted in knots. Why? Anyone’s guess is no better or worse than another’s. Who can say for certain? Is there anyone in particular leading it? Confusing.  It is more of a group culture think, and momentum leads.

At this point, one could write some jabber like this meaning very little or a lot, depending, and could even be considered inspiring. So maybe there is some hope, though remote, that this radical thing called wokeness can reverse engineer itself by the same evolution it was created. But don’t bet on it. More appropriate is the concern of what it will do?

When does this woke get broke?

I don’t mind so much new ideas built on established things and concepts; but this wokeness appears hell-bent on destroying, tearing down and abolishing any conventional concepts.

Is it winning?

Does something now as basic as America survive the targeted onslaught? Stay tuned. But if not, don’t expect an epitaph. Woke doesn’t do those. God save us from this Woke.

We are where we are,

surrounded by Woke

and it don’t feel better,

It just feels worse.

Denial Is Done

After giving it serious thought, there is an admission I could make that some people may understand. I am a kind of ideologue. Now as a rule I don’t like ideologues. But in one way there is something to say for it. Maybe it is not quite conventional but neither am I.

What I mean is I am an anti-Leftist ideologue. Years ago it was just called anti-liberal for shorthand because of what liberals have become, Leftists. That’s too bad they ruined the term liberal. I’m zealous about it to the point of knowing their stands; (evolving as they are) I have read their diatribes, studied their positions and learned to spot them pretty easily. They are fairly easy to stereotype.

However, the old form of liberal – in the classical sense – is gone, or an endangered species.

Some of those leftists may still like to use the term liberal for cover because it sounds so much better. But they are really leftists not the old classical liberals. You would have to go back to see what even liberals were pre-sixties to contrast them.

But since the rise of the new left, old liberaldom with its classical positions and defenses has been squeezed out — rendered extinct. Freedom and libertarian stands are gone now. All that remains in the Democrat Party are Marxist, socialist, sympathizing views. Even they know it when they purge or reform outliers. To a large extent, they don’t try to deny or hide it like they once did into the nineties. In fact, they flaunt it in our faces.

The person who can be most credited with exposing them nationally is Donald Trump. We knew it before but Trump removed any shadow of doubt about it. Their mask is gone.

Occasionally, I recall things they used to say and the cagy way they denied their real positions. Now they just blurt them verbatim like any other Stalinist leftoids. Democrats are at the least fluent in the radical terminology. The commies have entered the fray and are, for the most part, running the show on the left. They used to get offended by those accusations before. Now they chuckle at the charge.

Times really have changed, but what has really changed is the identity of the left. The new left has turned into the old commie platform with all the bells and whistles one expects. Only the denial about it is gone, replaced by pride with an exuberant arrogance.

Call me that type of ideologue and I will gladly wear the label.

The Looming Lunacy

It is only the third week in January and already the Loons are out in force. They seem to be everywhere you turn. Of course I’m not talking about some graceful bird, I’m talking about the radical Left. Maybe it is a type of mating thing they are doing. And wow, are they a noisy bunch. (if you have ever been around actual loons, you know what I mean)

I know you have heard it all before and so have I. The crazy Democrats are up to their tricks and ruining society, as we know it. But it’s true and they are. Only their antics aren’t seasonal or dependent on weather, it is all the time. And we are not fighting nature; we are fighting a non-stop force of evil that could easily be labeled reverse evolution.

Now if they had some knowledge or expertise in something, then I could understand there might be something worth listening to. But it is a radical hodgepodge of wacky theories and plans they roll out almost limitlessly. Time and space do not permit me to list them. From where do all these ideas spawn? Well, that is the question.

There is socialism, Marxism, cultural Marxism, Maoist thought saturating it. They don’t care where the ideas come from, or where they lead. No matter how many times those ideas have failed or wrought misery on people, none of that matters.

But I will say one thing for them. Now they have got an almost perfect person in an El Presidente to lead their movement. He hasn’t got the stamina or will to stand up to them. (if he wanted to) He is only the preferred vessel through which they can pursue their wildest fantasies. And a perfect one it is.

He is prone and committed to doing anything they desire. Nothing is off the table. Frankly, to call this bunch “woke” is an insult to reality. They flutter on emotions and instinctively respond accordingly. They aren’t the smartest bunch. I don’t know if we have ever seen the likes of this behavior before. And yet they call us flat-earthers.

The question should be: can we as a society afford to live with such a dominant if domineering species? How long could such cohabitation go on? Ironically that is the very kind of projection you hear from them on the Left. They wonder aloud how they can live in society with us? Is that a sign that there is something seriously flawed here? I think so.

You could compare the “woke” Left to ISIS or the Taliban in their culture of disgust for humanity. You would be close, But instead, they project that incompatible nature onto us. Remember they are the ones who don’t seem to care where all this leads or what effects we suffer from it. They don’t care. In fact, they use those harsh negative effects, of what they do, as a cudgel to lambaste us into compliance with their helter-skelter agenda. Abortion on demand is their leading answer to most of our problems. Just call it choice.

A simple question popped into my head as a valid response to all their rhetoric. So “you would endorse genocide and when should it start?” I think that is the only appropriate question left to ask them. It is, after all, the road they seem hell-bent on heading down. They are partially there already. Once they have convinced themselves of our inhumanity and the necessity of that solution, then it is only a matter of the logistics. They have already determined the path.

2020 In The Rearview

In the last week of the year, I thought it would be good to do a post on 2020 but I couldn’t do it. That is above my grade. It would take a 750 page tome just to outline the events of this year in any detail.

2020 was an indictment on our culture, the establishment, the Left. It was a complete assault on values and western society. I’ll take a pass on that. In fact, the cottage industry in 2021 will be books about what happened in 2020, and not just about the election. But it will probably inspire some books, too.

So what to do about 2020 but give it a big old middle finger? Maybe a Bronx cheer salute from sea to shining sea. A giant sigh.

Assembling those thoughts on it, my instinctive reaction was to get on my knees and plead for it to be over, never happen again, that we recover and learn what we need to to do that.

Above all, pray that it be over. Finished. Then the taps would be in order rather than playing “Auld Lang Syne”. That song literally means “for the sake of old times.” 2020 was a blitzkrieg on the old times. Here are the lyrics:

“Should Old Acquaintance be forgot,
and never thought upon;
The flames of Love extinguished,
and fully past and gone:
Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,
that loving Breast of thine;
That thou canst never once reflect
On old long syne.”

It doesn’t quite work. Maybe those words are an appropriate tribute in any other year except this one. The taps with no lyrics serves it much better.

What did we learn; what were the important events; where are the benefits; or what was the overall theme? Too soon? There are days still left. Did anyone get mad at a year?

If cancel culture had any legitimacy or backbone, it would cancel 2020. But no, it tried to use the events of the year to cancel other things or people. Think of them all: from heroes to founders, to everyday Americans, to America itself, to news stories and corruption, to a great president. Cancel culture was literally screaming through a pandemic.

The only thing they didn’t try canceling was China, the place that spawned the pandemic.

And politics were in full display, oh were they. We found some events or situations that even politics, politicization of events or weaponization had no answer for. But they tried.

Finish 2020 off by 2 Senate runoffs in Georgia — which could determine the majority in the US Senate — by radical, commie, Marxist candidates. What could go wrong with that?

Is there no mercy left?

As bad as the year has been, whistling past the graveyard would do us no justice. We must make sure this year does not contaminate others. We must vow to repair the damage, not to continue it.

The strange thing is I get a sick feeling the Democrat left is not as disgusted by the year as the rest of us are. After all, in crises they see opportunities. The greater the crisis, the more people hurt, the greater the opportunity. It’s their motto.

Still one thought does remain about all those who did not see the end of the year, maybe for different reasons. Hundreds of thousands, like nursing home residents, did not make it through. Not even receiving a proper farewell. Enough said.

Play the taps. (Yet it will be remembered, in infamy)

Good vs. Evil

In 2020, the age-old debate over good versus evil still rages on. Or should that be battle? But is there any way to score the current landscape?

To judge the levels of which is winning or losing, I have a simple test.

What is the amount or saturation level of evil in society? Start by asking a question: what is the cost of doing the right thing? The answer is a good indication of the level of evil.

Ideally it used to be doing the right thing because it was the right thing to do, was just the rule. It was appreciated or even praised. And that was it. But that has changed.

It can be more complex these days.

Now doing the right thing can have consequences. There can be penalties. Sometimes one pays a stiff price for doing the right thing. Not always. Well, it could even be a heavy price at times. If you think about it realistically, you can see those areas.

So I think that cost is directly relative to the amount of evil there is. Not to oversimplify it; I’m not saying that is a hard rule in all situations but in general.

You could take that to another level with the amount of good or evil in the public sector. Consider what Trump tried to do. Consider the amount of resistance, by Resisters, to give you an idea what I mean. There is certainly a lot of resistance..

Then look at the resistance or cost inflicted by Antifa or BLM protestors in riots or looting. It drives the cost of doing the right thing higher. Look at the ability of cops to prevent it.

Look at how many cops were murdered for just doing their job. So I think all that, and the tally of the cost, is a reasonable indicator to the saturation level of evil there.

Personal Encounter Of The Worst Kind

It may not be recommended to write in the first person, however, these days I find it increasingly harder to avoid it. See, when I am very bothered or troubled by things, my instinct is to personalize it.

Obviously, I am very concerned by the stream of what I see going on. One could not ignore it if one really tried to. That is part of the point I will get to in a minute.

The beginning of this is that we now have had three and a half years of a Trump presidency so it is time to state some of the revelations we have seen. I look at it sort of like a lessons learned confirmation of many suspicions that built up over the years.

But let me use this one example. Almost since 2016 we have heard these comparisons to Nixon. It was like a forgone conclusion the left was setting up about Trump. Not that bad, you say, it’s par for the course.

Though if we really compared it to Nixon we would realize that old phrase “the cover up is worse than the crime” would be shredded to pieces. That has always been the high-water mark to liberals. (I know the term liberal is questionable, but convenient) They always assert that no matter what the crime is, the coverup of it is much worse, more corruptive.

So in this case a direct comparison would show that, while there was a cover up under Nixon, it was limited to those in the ranks who were involved directly in it.

But what we have here in this country is a monstrous collusion between Government, nefarious Democrats — and their many activities — and the media or national press organ, all involved in the acts and the coverup. This is far bigger and worse than anything the Russians could even try to do to the US. It might be hyperbole to some but come along.

In Nixon’s case you were dealing with a ring of people. There were Deep Throat and reporters breaking the story to a shocked public. Okay, not to delve into details but this has been their analogy, not mine. Press broke through — but it couldn’t under Obama.

What is going on in this country today far surpasses anything called a scandal. In fact, calling it a scandal would be minimizing what was done.

Another pet pieve of mine is prestigious historians talking about this or that period. Actually, they wait for events to happen and then talk about them where one can make conclusions in connecting dots. All very interesting, as history is, but not so efficient in dealing with present reality. Though I am curios why or how we got here, too.

While events are happening, we don’t always know what the end result or effect of them will be. In effect, we are writing history without knowing how it ends. As they say, hindsight is 20/20. At this time, we have the benefit of witnessing all the events in real time. It is all terrible and we cannot say with confidence where it ends.

We now can see this giant ball of collusion is very damaging. We may not know the full effect yet. One of the contributing symptoms of it, forget the cause, is that the Democrats or progressives are more incorrigible than about anything I ever saw before.

For instance, when we have been saying for years that Democrats don’t care that is now an understatement. They really, truly don’t. When we have said the ends justify the means, it is so much bigger than that simple concept. The why of both of those are mind-blowing. (and we may not even know the entire why)

What we know that they know is an indictment on the Left. They know what is wrong, they pursue it anyway as a means. The media knows it should not ignore the truth and what is going on, but they do anyway. Government people know they should not be operating maliciously but they do anyway. The contributing corruption, then, between all the collaborating allies, is a monstrous cabal.

The sum total of what it is doing is even greater than all the parts combined. (I hope that makes sense) No, it is not an illusion or conspiracy theory of our making. It is actively happening right in front of our faces. Remember Adam Schiff claimed the proof of Trump’s collusion with Russia is in front of our noses? That was ironic projection there.

What they are doing, collaboratively, is much more caustic than anything we’ve witnessed before. We thought we had seen it all. We thought we knew what bad was. But now it has gotten to the stage that it operates right in front of us, teasing us that there is nothing we can do about it if it were exposed.

When you point out any of the wrong doings or patterns of corruption, they laugh at you as if you are hallucinating. But the thing is we know it and they know it. There cannot be any honest agreement about that admission though.

There is another new term some people are using now called “next level” stuff. I don’t have to define that. However, everything is so next level now there aren’t any words for it. Maybe I will think of some. Never mind that. This is ultra-next level.

From my point of view, I finally made a few determinations. First is that the Left doesn’t care. Caring is nowhere in the scene.

So they know all this is corrupt, from Benghazi to government abuse and obstruction; to rogue, personal servers concealing government operations; to surveillance of a candidate; to a full-blown coup orchestrated on an incoming president; to a blanket cover up of everything done before it. Who is complicit in all of this? That list is long.

No, it is not at all akin to Watergate or Nixon, or any past scandals. And the players involved are far more egregious and sinister than those. One could even say 40 percent of the country might be participating in one way or another. The percentage doesn’t matter.

If the entire base of the Democrat Party, and their various allies, are all corrupted then it is a big net. We don’t have to look far for examples based just on what they say.

For instance: the Supreme Court nomination. Chuck Schumer ran out threatening if Republicans pick a justice, next year everything would be on the table. Everything was on the table anyway. Nothing has been off the table to Democrats yet.

Look further down though. Trump picked the nominee and then social media erupted. Sure we knew it was coming. Yet it is always far worse. The leftist base – way past the Move On days — are telling Democrats to do anything possible to stop this. Use any means they have. Use every dirty trick or illegal maneuver to delay or block it. Use impeachment to try to stop it. Anything at all, short of warfare and some of them already advocate that.

You see how pernicious it all is? Right and wrong mean nothing, even remotely, even the Constitution means nothing. The gig is up. They really are unhinged but in the most dangerous way. They don’t care about anything. They don’t care if the country burns. They don’t care if it causes chaos or civil war.

But they do care about results and they demand them. In effect, it is a hostile takeover where the assailant values nothing the American people value. There is no common ground. Actually any type of criminal behavior that works to their benefit is demanded. They don’t need to make exceptions because there can be no exceptions.

This has always been the reason why you cannot negotiate with terrorists. They want to run over you, beat you into submission, cower you to their demands. This is the real coup, the one against Trump was only an appetizer. You could call it the coup of coups. One where there is no end to it.

Back on the track of cast of characters. the media plays a crucial role in all of it. They too do not care. It is not a simple matter that they chose to ignore all this stuff. They blatantly don’t care about it either. They are cognizant of the veracity but it doesn’t matter. Still the cover up, or the attempt at it, goes on.

But now we all know, confirmed over and over again, what has gone on. And it was confirmed even from their own ranks within the Deep State, within media or press, and by the Left. They don’t care that we know either and that is where war could begin.

Ordinarily, the main objective is to expose and reveal it. That is the starting point. The goalpost has shifted. It is out in the open now but the players cannot be coerced or forced to do the right thing. It has been so long. And so far there has been no power to force it.

No more pretenses. Lawlessness is the bomb.

This is the real dangerous spot. We now have lots of people who are willing to do anything, including breaking every law, to achieve their desires. (whatever crazy things those are) But this monstrosity is working its deviant, defiant, criminal will to achieve its ends. They have no scruples. And we see repeatedly that nothing is going to stop them.

We thought a coup was the end game. We thought a gigantic cover up was the wider plot. Yet it was always much bigger than we thought.

I would like to leave you with a bit of good news only I really have none. If I happen to think of or run across any, I will let you know.

Coming Attractions: Port-Amerika

For anyone listening: I am only a messenger, one voice, and I control nothing or no one. But there is one interesting message I have to pass along now.

Please put it in context that the Left has been at this for months, for years, and their rhetoric is always high. That in mind, this comes from collective Marxist organizers.

I don’t know that they can crank tensions up any higher but that is their idea.

Black Panther Disciples
BPDisciples — [Twitter]
REMEMBER:

#September1st is the first day of
#SuperStrikeSeptember:

Collision symbol
Largest organized #GeneralStrike in modern US history

Collision symbol
Begins the same day as the nationwide #MarchForJustice for #BreonnaTaylor

Collision symbol
Every city will implement the #PortlandPrototype protest model

 

(BPD)–On September 1st, 2020, the Black Lives Matter movement, in #solidarity with the US #LaborMovement, shall make history. Together, the People will rise up and seize the reins of power and production and finally set this nation on the right path. The plan is simple:

What we already knew, Portland is their protest model, their prototype. And they plan on pollenating that across America. I certainly hope the DOJ is watching it like the rest of us.

They boast this riot model of violence and urban terrorism has been sustained for over ninety days. So they plan on duplicating that success everywhere they can.

And there is definitely a solidarity with media and Democrat pols. What is left to the imagination? Now you know what to expect from Dems and media who amp it up.

Tomorrow’s Leaders

One of the things that always intrigued me was the idea of tomorrow’s leaders. I remained on the optimistic side until the early 2000’s. Then the pessimism began to outweigh the positive thoughts. You can read any reasons into that you like.

At least I tried to be optimistic that our future would be in decent hands. I don’t know that I can say that too much anymore. It’s sad. That’s not to say our leaders have been all that great or wonderful. But my hope was tomorrow’s leaders would reach new goals and highs, much like science and technology advances. (realizing not all advances are good)

One can hope future leaders improve and learn from past errors. Even void of history.

Of course those lessons are harder when no one talks about or acknowledges those past errors. Or if they refuse to admit there were errors. Without that, it seems to me, we cannot learn to not repeat them. Another way to look at it is: if we learn that those errors were positive and we need to do more of it not less, then we seem doomed to failure. But that could make some people happy.

Nowadays I have to apologize for not generally being positive. There just seem to be so many negatives staring me in the face. That is being realistic about it. I still feel the hope for the country and all, far as that is possible. But the leadership, to me, is very much in question. I suppose there can be no guarantees. Maybe I would like to see more signs of positivity for the long run?

It seemed like a big dose of positive for the future just getting Trump into office. He more than accomplished my basic desires. I can’t list them but a huge one was to break the monopoly and shake up the system enough to change status quo. That was a help. With that, as I assumed, we got all the attacks we should have expected. But it got much worse than I expected. Okay, so that is only confirmation of how badly it needed it. I get that.

Then came the official, organized resistance and all the rest. Again, predictable. Though at some point you evaluate if we have made headway in the long run. It is hard to see it. Then what happens if and when we let up even for a second? You know. That is also why I am convinced in seeing it as evil. And it spreads.

I sure would like to feel more optimistic for the future in good hands. But I’m seeing that glass as half empty and that is not enough to repel the enemy within. Is it a matter of training? I don’t know. Maybe I am looking at it only from my small perspective.

In the end, I do have faith that God is in charge and He will see us through. But that does not prevent bad things from happening to us. We can cause problems. Technology improvements themselves can cause problems, too. It is not all good.

When it comes to leaders though, I sigh and ask ‘will these new ones have to learn things all over again?’ Does the whole sequence have to repeat itself? Can’t we build on what we know and not on what we don’t know? I ask those questions in confidence because I don’t always like the answers I get. What about cynicism, is that fashionable now?

That is just touching the surface and I could litter this with examples. But at this point, I don’t think they are necessary. One more question for the road. Maybe we never really took on the communist threat the way we should have – or seriously enough?

Keep On

What do we do? We should continue to pray for our country, the people, and ourselves. Pray we overcome this evil mist hovering across our country.It cannot defeat us.

Other than that, elections will still come on November 3rd and we need to vote. But now with what states have done in mail-in voting, and Dems’ other antics, we should realize it will be weeks before we know a final result on the election. You can expect delay.

I’m hearing, thinking and figuring it will take at least a month to count votes. I don’t see how to avoid that scenario. It should make Bush vs. Gore look like child’s play.

I get a reminder every time I look at my mail. There are no postmark dates anymore. Well, what does that tell us?

Keep on….. but knees are for praying.

Malicious Intent Of Radicals

I will try to make this brief to the important point. There has been a lot of radical activity lately, what with protests, counter protests, antifa, rioting, doxxing, violence and the like. Most of it carries a pernicious theme. It is almost too much to take in at once.

However, we have some typical reactions to it, along with desensitizing ourselves to it all. We have mob behavior and then we have the reactions to it from Democrats. Enough has been said about Democrats sympathies toward Marxist radicals. They just can’t help themselves from aligning with radicals’ goals and agenda. You know birds of the feather.

But something else comes through, best exemplified in a recent comment from Judge Jeanine on her show. She was talking about all this and referred to the elected officials in Seattle saying “what are you stupid?” It would be easier if we could write all this off as Democrats’ stupidity in how they respond to lawless radical activity of the Left.

We can no longer afford to be that naïve to call them stupid. In many or most cases, they do know what they are doing. And often they have reasons for it . Those reasons are malicious in themselves. Democrats come out of the same radicalism that spawns these protests and riots. Civil disobedience is only a means. But it is way past “civil disobedience.” It is lawlessness.

Now contrast that all with what we see happening on a daily basis. Often the elected and Democrats appear to operate in concert with the thugs – or at least do things to encourage, enable or sympathize with them. This is not by accident.

See the problem is we want to attribute what officials do as being stupid. What if it isn’t? What if it all is intentional? Now that is the only way the whole thing makes sense. In other words, if they know exactly what they are doing. If so, then officials operate collaboratively. Why should we ignore the obvious or pretend otherwise? Because we don’t want to admit the real malicious intent behind what these elected officials are doing. But haven’t we seen enough to have our worst fears validated? I think we have.

Dan Bongino began posing such a question about the mayor of NYC, Bill De Blasio. (real name Warren Wilhelm Jr.) About all the stuff he is doing that harms NYC, he asked, what would someone do differently if they wanted to destroy the city? Nothing, he says. So they would do nothing differently if they intentionally wanted to destroy the city. Get it?

Everyone needs to ask themselves the question if he/she is one of those being naïve about motivations of these radicals? With radicals, it doesn’t matter much whether they are on the street or in government somewhere, same difference. They are serving the same ends.

It can be traced back to Obama politicizing government. So it doesn’t matter whether you are serving in it or outside protesting it. Both sides share the same aspirations. And that radical ideology (for lack of other word) is the same that drives the actions of both.

The real question then is why would we attribute ignorance or stupidity to leftists when they are quite aware of what they are doing, and the consequences of it? Seems pointless.

A current example: the husband and wife in St. Louis, Missouri who defended themselves by bearing arms outside their residence to a mob of protestors, threatening the homeowners on their own property. The prosecutor charged them for threatening “peaceful” protestors.

Judge Napolitano on Fox noted that both husband and wife are lawyers. He said maybe the Soros-funded prosecutor had not considered the charges she placed on them could affect their ability to practice law? But no, no! What if she knew and realized that? Additional harm to her targets? You see, it starts to make sense when you apply reasoning.

Why else would radicals do what they do but to cause intentional harm to their political opponents? It’s the only way it makes sense. Maybe wider damage is the whole purpose.

Another thing we must consider is that reform is antithetical to these radicals. Actually, the last thing they want is reform, in the end, if their real intent is to tear down the entire system. Reform is a much slower way to get to their goals. But they would even use reform (or abuse any reform process) to get their real goals, though that takes work.

In this way, it makes these people part of a larger insurrection hell bent on taking down our government and economic system to replace it with another, Marxist, socialistic system. Even socialism light is not enough for these people. Reform is way too moderate for them. They are more the hard-line Leftists, Marxists of the European flavor.

Closing argument.

Fox news host Tucker Carlson was a target of Leftist attacks and boycotts in the past. His home was vandalized and attacked, repeatedly, and he and his family were threatened. So finally he moved his family and voila, NYT has a piece in the breach to publish (doxx) his new location. Notice how intentional it all is to cause as much harm and inflict as much pain as they can. Ignorance? Not a chance. The Only thing remaining is malicious intent.

So what if we mis-attribute ignorant, naive intentions to Dems they don’t have or deserve? Now who is being stupid if we do that? So is there something wrong with instinctive reactions that play down the malicious objectives of radicals’ actions? Yes, sure is.

And to fight them, we should understand their motives. But we miss that mark when we attribute stupidity, ignorance, or naivete to their motivations. Can we just accept it?

So why would we want to disarm ourselves?
The only obvious question left then is: ‘are we serial deniers?’

Enemy Within, Game On

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

William Davis | July o7, 2020  Daily Caller

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Washington Examiner

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

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

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

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

The Trial On American Culture

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Obama’s Famous Byline

During Obama’s two terms, they had a catchall phrase for their critics. It was six words: “this is not who we are.” It was designed to shutdown their opposition.

Well, now we know and see exactly who they were: espionage, surveillance, spying on political opponents, politicizing all of government culminating in sedition, treason and even interfering in a presidential election. That’s who they are, the worst kind of people.

Any investigation of that corruption would have to be deep-sixed, never to be exposed to the light of the public. And there was a hell of a lot to hide.

Their first major target after Carter Page and Papadopoulos was General Flynn. They were rabid on that case because he could lead right back to Obama’s and Biden’s corruption trail. Via Flynn et al, we saw exactly what happens to the good people. We also know too well what happens to bad ones — they are still around.

It evolved, after the failed and corrupt Mueller special counsel probe, into a hoax conspiracy impeachment that was staged as part of the cover up for what the past administration did, or any investigation into it.

Yes, the 3 ½ year long coverup train planned on steaming right into and through the next election — after denying the results of the last one.

But along came, once again, a convenient pandemic named COVID-19 to isolate our fears to the immediate survival mode. It wiped everything else off the airwaves and concern list. Coronavirus was just what the doctor ordered after the failed impeachment. A chaser.

Just like a made to order diversion, Coronavirus was just the prescription to bury any investigation leading to Obama. And the economic benefit of the COVID shutdown would damage Trump. It would carry the damage they couldn’t mount.

Then, like a nightmare, Flynn came back to center stage with revelations of what the FBI schemed and plotted under Obama. Truth oozes out of the sores – one pore at a time.

So once again, “this is not who we are” is stood on its head showing exactly who they are. The collaborating dark arts of evil cannot cover up their coup forever. It leaks out.

Not to worry, though, the organ of free press was already pronounced DOA in 2016.

Chinese Political Theater

Bad enough what China dropped on the rest of the world, but it continues in subterfuge about what happened. Press aren’t much better either reporting Beijing talking points.

China stood by while they exported the pandemic to the rest of the world. They complained about any resistance to their spreading it. And sure, it was seeded in America sooner than people are saying. The same with Italy.

It was as if it was their mission to spread it as far and wide, as quickly as they possibly could. Then they chose the cover up COVID-19 method.

What they unleashed on the world was as bad as anything else they’ve done for the past 25 years. This is malicious, evil behavior.

But from now until it is over, there will be a whole lot to grieve over. And that grieving will morph into putting blame where it belongs – not on fictional, political talking points. China has given us another big reason to detest what they do. None of it will ever be forgotten.

China, you brought this all on yourself. The Chinese COVID coverup.

9-11 The Infamy Wears Off

It is that important national day of 9-11, once again, with all that it entangles. I find myself still in a constant state of mourning for all the families and great loss of that day, 18 years ago today — feeling more like it’s been 18 months. The kind of loss so big that it always leaves a lump in my throat.

But now, on this day, I am also in mourning for something else. I mourn the loss of CNN, too. Yes, you heard me right, grief not grievance.

I remember back in the early 90’s when CNN was a fledgling news channel as it covered the first Iraq war, Dessert Storm. I recall C-130 Hercules transport planes flying non-stop overhead 24 hours a day in a perpetual pattern. I was told that’s what they were.

For the up to date information, you could turn to CNN as a source for news. Wolf Blitzer was on location there somewhere reporting what was going on. It was called the first televised war — even if that was a distortion. CNN was one voice in a vacuum demanding real-time information. We needed to know what was happening in a country finding its war and defensive posture. CNN was there. Maybe reports were not complete or up to the second but it is all we had. In fact, before it started we were well aware of circumstances via media reports. No internet to rely on either.

Contrast that with the menu of cable news we have now, with Internet and social media compliments. It’s almost hard to imagine that CNN was so prominent of a news source then. But those days are gone, and so is CNN as a credible news source.

So today I am mourning that loss as well as 9-11. Back on 9-11, 2001, CNN tried to keep up with a slurry of news. They tried, at least temporarily, to provide unbiased coverage. I have to say, by then, Fox did a better job. Cable went commercial free for days in wall-to-wall coverage. We were mostly a unified nation, even if George Bush was the President. (Not Al Gore)

The bad guys were in the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan. A new area we didn’t know that much about. So much to do and say. Before a military response, there were debates in Congress and they lined up supporting force. Only a few outliers.

Well, with all the mourning today, there are a number of things regarding 9-11 that can anger me like almost nothing else. Those are: lack of respecting or accepting the attack for what it was, trivializing the sanctity of the day; drawing unreasonable parallels or equating other acts of violence to it; using that historical event to promote other partisan political agendas; giving short shrift to victims of that day that continue to mount; or depriving those victims of dialogue and justice that still evades them all these years later. Or, basically misusing the memory or sacred observance of the day. (even 18 years after)

But CNN manages to do about all those, on the day it is memorialized in 2019. And they did it as a matter of programming, which reveals planning. I could list endless poof and examples but that is more writing than I care to do now. I shouldn’t have to that is obvious. It is not only CNN but the entire left does the same. It is not nit-picking.

So cable news chose to talk about gun control, the impeachment agenda and normal partisan gotcha politics. There are 364 other days in the year and that is not enough, they have to corrupt this one too, like everything else?

No, they could not even be bothered to respect the memory and events of the day. They must defile the day’s memory and its significant importance. Nothing is sacred.

Congratulations, CNN, because today you earned the “enemy of the people” title anew!
