Language Police

This cycle has been happening on the Internet over the years, and always the same pattern. You have forums or sites with thread comments where people talk. Call them watering holes or whatever. People gather with ideas or positions to communicate.

Before you know it, others pop up like hall monitors trying to tell you what you can and cannot say. They claim you your opinions are wrong and that you or your ideas are a threat. Sometimes they call for banning.

But they stand there like it is their duty to attack you for what you say. So you are perceived as dangerous and a problem because of your views. You’ll hear the mantra both sides do that. They act like language police on a beat.

That is not how freedom works though. The Left don’t get to decide what people can say, think or do. They don’t get to veto speech.

You can tell from all these bursts, it is not just language or speech they are attacking. It goes all the way to thought. But it’s about control of the speaker. Some probably don’t even know they are doing it or what the end goal is. Some are well aware of it. Their real objective is to shut you down if what you think and say does not line up with their views.

Who appointed them the speech police? No one. They are self-anointed, like the grammar cops, to decide what people cannot talk about. They take this imaginary “duty” seriously.

They act like hall monitors that think everything in public domain is up to their judgment or discretion. This requires that they think they have power to make those judgments. Who gave them that authority or power?

So every time a social media opens, there are always those who think it is their entitled job to control what people say….or think. This is not how freedom or the first amendment works by any stretch of their ignorant imaginations. Yet there they are defying it.

They can’t just use social media like the rest of us. They want to conform everyone to their views and exclude others. It’s a natural appetite for them.

So we see social media companies doing the same thing in a coordinated campaign and are given the power to do it. Thus, control what you are allowed to say or what information is permitted. Other corporations reinforce it or do the same.

That leads us right down the golden path to corporate fascism. It meshes with the rest of the Leftist authoritarianism. I know they call it oligarchy but fascism describes it. And when did we turn into Russia?

Think it is not coming for you? Then you must not have said the wrong thing out of step with their views. Give it time, you will. It is inevitable at some point. They’ll let you know.

But this is not how freedom or free speech works.

A Word On Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh has been gone about a week and the press seems obsessed by calling him hate-filled or divisive. He’ll live on rent-free in their minds.

First off, no one has probably done more for the conservative movement than Rush Limbaugh. But there are some consequences for that kind of success. He was targeted by the Left’s smear machine for decades. It’s what happens when you are effective.

The steady drumbeat from the media is calling him hate radio and divisive, polarizing. Only by the Left’s terminology and standards.

So telling the truth about the Left, their agenda and tactics is hate? Exposing what the Left is doing is divisive? Talking about issues and policy is divisive? The DNC has no patience for anyone truth-telling on the airwaves.

Rush could have been the original cancel culture target. They wanted nothing more than to remove him from the air, shut him up and destroy him. They couldn’t. He thrived on their efforts and it fed into his talk operation. Certainly the Left will be on the lookout for anyone rivaling his reach and popularity. Yes, he was a phenomenon.

But one has to understand what came before Rush: The Fairness Doctrine. That was the policy that forced airwaves to give “equal time” to issues and politics. As usual, the Left found a way to use that to shut down conservative opinion or ideas. The media would say they could not give equal time to the other side, so effectively it cancelled conservative speech. In effect, you were limited by your opposition’s inability to present another side.

The effect of that policy worked the same as their silencing agenda. They use social media now to do the silencing. There is no fairness. Equality is the last thing the Left wants. They want and demand a stacked deck: institutionally, culturally, and in the airwaves.

With Rush, they could have none of that. He wasn’t going to give them a minute of peace. He was probably enemy number one for that reason. The Left despises competition. They resent being challenged by the truth. And they certainly hated any idea about the numbers of Rush’a audience.

But yet in such an environment Rush Limbaugh flourished like wild flowers.

Just an aside, I remember back about ’92 a friend from Kansas City gave me Limbaugh’s book. He said this is the guy to watch and listen to. I started reading the book and realized this guy had the same ideas I had. For the first time the issues he would talk about made sense in a sea of political chaos. But the very best part was to realize there were a lot of people out there, almost a limitless amount, who agreed and felt the same way. And we were not going away. That is the way I remember it anyhow.

So now there are over 20 million Limbaugh’s who are out there. They are not alone or isolated. He started the ball rolling. But the Left saw the same thing with Goldwater and then Reagan before. They at least knew what it meant for them. If imitation is a form of flattery, the Left tried to duplicate it but couldn’t make it work on Air America.

I’ll miss Rush, but never ever forget him.

Institutional Failure

We no longer have the luxury of debating serious concepts or ideas, but can only opine on current political reality. As long as we still can anyway.

But this column or next just might be the last, at this critical stage. Who knows? That is the political reality of the time. Just call this an SOS to the future.

Odd how America was always standing up for those timeless principles and freedoms like speech or basic civil liberties. Not anymore. That is the stuff of yesteryear now.

All of this in our current reality is due to institutional failure. No, it is not just a president’s dictate or even Congress’s decrees; it takes more than that to really set our country off the irreversible edge. Our institutions have a big and necessary role in that condition, not only governmental institutions but private or non-governmental institutions.

Right now they are screaming for us to jump, “don’t look back. Hurry up!”

Who are they? Well, media for one has a big role. But there are plenty others like policy centers, research labs to big corporations to technology, universities, education. All working hand and glove in a concerted, malicious way against civil liberties of people is enough to throw in the towel on society — as if government failure and corruption were not enough of a problem.

But all operating in a concerted effort, until you have something that makes George Orwell blush in his grave. And snark is substituted for substance in defense of what they do. So what is the answer to that? Well, we don’t know because we probably were never to this pinnacle before. Sadly, we just don’t know.

Institutions are to society what sin is to mankind. It is the cancerous rot that can destroy the body from inside out. If left corrupt and untreated, it can unleash a ticking clock on the mantle of freedom and all we hold dear. Or you could call that the glue or ligaments that hold us all together. And what a number both can do on us in a short amount of time.

So now a first amendment case to defend one’s self is no longer an acceptable option?

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.

Under Siege: Martial Law Continues

Democracy now means Martial Law. There are over 10k troops in DC to explain that. Usually, when the guard is dispatched, when the threat dissipates so does the guard.

But not in this case. They are there for an important reason, image. To show you we are under Martial Law and very much at risk. (apparently from Americans).

Do they want us to think that the process, government, our democratic process are all in such dysfunctional shape that they need to have the Guard stabilize the system? Yes.

That image is important to remind people. When they hold an impeachment of a former president, they need the image of the guard to remind you of this huge threat.

The irony is that if Trump had called out the guard, they would have called it Martial Law that minute, saying it was for his personal use. You know that because they were warning us a month before inauguration that Trump was going to do exactly that.

Now they declare that Martial Law is the new democracy. But there is another cynical tactic here. Who called the guard? Since when is Christopher Wray in charge of calling out the National Guard. That is the essence of this. Where did he get that power? He stated over-hyped threats and, voila, out comes the guard.

This doesn’t seem to bother Joe Biden though, since he is now president and Commander-In-Chief. Or is someone else? Who handed that off to Chris Wray and the FBI?

Free speech and the First Amendment are also under assault. And crickets are chirping on the Left. It suits them and the administration just fine. A nation under siege.

Cancel culture and their army of proxies will enforce and defend their edicts.
Resistance has officially been abolished.

Nightmares In Déjà vu

There is something to be said about nightmares. Sometimes the worst ones come back. And those are the ones you vividly remember, too. Sometimes you wish you could forget them but you cannot. You wonder where they came from or what spawned them?

So the Obama-Biden years were like a nightmare. It was one of the worst that went on way too long. A dark period many had said was inevitably bound to lead back to common sense virtues. Eventually people would reject it all as leaders would mount an opposition. A good thing in the end. It didn’t work that way.

Now I feel like those nightmares are being injected back into my consciousness. They are back with only slight changes. The characters, some original and others replaced, in that same central theme. This time more determined with more fear than even before. This time with more concentration. They’ve broken through reality and taken up permanent residency in my consciousness.

For instance, one media pundit was a little sad saying Joe Biden probably will not have a honeymoon as president. Ah that is a pity. But the guy was in office for 47 years. He had a half-century-long honeymoon. And he enriched himself quite well along the way. The last thing he deserves is a honeymoon. But us?

Instead, we the people do not get a honeymoon. We do not get a break from anything. We are thrust right back into the nightmares of the Obama years. This time they want to torture everyone into submission. Think that is a bit exaggerated?

In only two days, Biden and company have already declared war on (our) culture, energy, rule of law, security, the economy, values, climate, the Constitution, rights. courts, any opposition, the election system, business, family, history, education or choice, our way of life, America’s sovereignty, border security, and the country itself. They declared war on the first, second, fourth, fifth, ninth, tenth, and fourteenth amendments. More to follow.

And all that is just the beginning with China and it’s total dominance breathing down America’s near future. Submission to Demcrats’ twisted and failed ideology is only a stepping-stone to the Chinese CCP threat looming.

But even all that is not enough. Biden and Democrats demand a non-stop gloat-fest from media for everything they are doing. So they are getting it.

And the last four years?

Just forget all that; abolish it from your memory. Make the current conditions so bad one is forced to forget the Trump years. Forget the possibilities, the hope, the hard and slow change we made from their 8-year abyss. But our nightmares are back with vengeance.

Back to the future.

It has its groups and cancel culture as enforcers. Step out of line now and you will be permanently penalized. Do you want that? Of course not. It has what even Obama never had: the full, unified force of proxy enforcers to carry out their will.

We the people are apparently the only ones who have not bought into all the crazy notions, none of which Joe talked about during the campaign. Now they come out of the woodwork.

Eulogizing King

Now a word on King. Not MLK but Larry King. He died, since also having COVID, at 87. What a shame and what a career in talk and TV. Radio in the 50s and 1960’s. No, not that I should have anything to say about Larry King.

Personally, I was not a big Larry King fan. I never really cared for him as a host. That’s a whole other matter. But he had you or everyone because he got those big interviews. So anyone making news or on big events of the day, Larry had the players on. They needed him and vice versa. More like you just could not avoid the guy.

In that way, he influenced the conversation but also facilitated it. The good, the bad, the ugly, the pomp and ill advised. He got them all. The one rule was anyone in the news went to Larry King, usually first. And his interviews were worth watching. At least he asked the questions people wanted to know. He was a standard.

I don’t know how one gets to the point where the minute someone popped up as important or influential that they had to do Larry King as a consequence? Maybe I don’t quite understand it. But he had the draw. So if you were interested in anything, you had to watch (tolerate) the Larry King archive of interviews.

I don’t know of any other person with that kind of draw and influence in and on the news. And I cannot see it replicated anytime soon. He seemed like the Johnny Carson of the news. He was a first stop in anyone riding the circuit.

That said, like him or not, he was a media player. Anyway that is a little ode to Larry King. The unavoidable. RIP.

NY AG SUES NYPD

News fresh out of the cistern is that the NY AG filed a suit against NYPD for its treatment of Black Lives Matter protestors, regarding last year’s protests in NYC.

That should help matters a lot.

Well, I could expound on that but I mean what would be the point? So we know different treatment for different protestors. It does seem surreal that an AG sues the city’s police department on behalf of BLM.

This is all just a part of the entire agenda. But let’s not talk about all the damage that was done by so-called peaceful protestors though. That does not merit concern.

Sorry, I’m seeing BLM more as perps than victims these days. (maybe there are some occupational hazards of the trade) See what a radical AG can do?

Great to know they are all over this, isn’t it? Watch this:

“First amendment violations against largely peaceful protestors. Gross abuses of force. Physical and psychological harm. Excessive and unreasonable force. Widely examined and reported. Peaceful Protestors.”/

“This is an institutional and systemic problem that must be addressed. It is my hope that today’s action might push the city in the right direction, so that we may move forward with decency, transparency, and respect for the law.”

Yeah that’s what we saw across the country. All that peacefulness, makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Why not just roll out a red carpet for “protestors”?

Maybe you could also pay for their hotel rooms, food tab or something to help a little?

Credibility Crisis

Do not be alarmed. Do not attempt to adjust your TV; it is not a faulty signal or your set. This is only a credibility crisis being streamed live to your living rooms or personal device. Brought to you by all the sponsors who have been working so hard, both behind the scenes and overtly, in the last four years.

I could name names starting with the media and active elected officials, even employees of the federal government. You know who you are. You want to think of yourselves as spectators but you are not. You think of yourselves as sanctimonious.

You are just as much active participants as the people who stormed inside the hallowed walls of the Capitol yesterday. You have responsibility. This couldn’t have happened without your willing participation in a four year assault on our system.

Now it has culminated in yet another election. But this time you got the results you wanted, This time you are satisfied with all your sordid efforts, no matter what it took. This time, for once, you are not in dissent with the results. Well, welcome to our world.

So one must take a stand and condemn the acts of violence? Now this demands everyone condemn it? There is no place for this activity? Where were they for months and months? But now, now it is wrong and it must be decried, unequivocally?

Don’t act like these are shocking results and pictures. Don’t feel so offended. What did you expect? What did you want to see happen? We know the goal all along.

The people were the butt of it.

Suddenly you want to preach about division and unity. You want to wax on process and the Constitution…. after months of defiling it. It is you, who have defined “democracy” downward.

I witnessed firsthand some of the coverage on Cspan. I watch the hosts feign outrage and take calls. While for months omission of the symptoms were ignored.

Every time the left does something, it is roundly ignored and then parsed down as if no one did anything wrong. But the first time the right does something, it is called an “attack on our democracy”. I’m sick of it.

Is our democracy so fragile that it cannot be questioned when it colors outside the lines, when it acts irresponsibly? Wasn’t our democracy under attack, under siege, for four years by the Left? I don’t care whether you call them BLM, Antifa, Bernie socialists, Marxists or social justice warriors. They have levied a war against our system for years.

They challenged a legitimate election for four years. Hillary told Joe Biden not to concede any loss, ever. She said he would win in the end. What did she mean? Now she says results of an election are being undermined, “democracy is under attack.”

The media has culpability in this. The media are the watchdogs. They stopped looking and caring. They didn’t want to look at any of the problems. They ignored it all. You can bet that had the election been the other way, every story would be chased down about what went wrong with the election — the way it was the last time. They spent four years investigating the 2016 election.

All I am saying is if the press and media are dead, then democracy is not far behind either. But that is not the end of it. That is only the starting point of the consequences to follow. Press and media have been whistling past these problems for years. In fact they have been laying the foundation for them and encouraging them.

Are answers to much to ask and expect?

So suddenly the media arises from its slumber to call all the people in the street thugs. They call it an insurrection. They even called it treason. They even say it is led from the top, Trump is organizing it.

Well, for eight years we had these commie organizers, thugs, and urban terrorists logging countless visits in the White House under Obama. Nothing was said about that. And we saw the fallout of “Occupy” movements and violent protests, shutting down highways etc. But it was dismissed wholesale.

All we want is a serious inquiry and a real investigation. If you spent four years on Russia, isn’t America worth it? How much fraud is enough? I’ve asked that before because the goalposts have moved. No fraud should be tolerable, it is the standard. Or was the standard. Now the goalpost is if fraud has made a difference and would alter the results of the election, then and only then it is intolerable.

But all the people want is a real meaningful investigation with real results of how we got here. Don’t talk about blanket reform garbage. That’s how we got here, They just reformed the entire election process but we are not suppose to notice or care? Just like they are reforming police and our justice system into the swamp. Anarchy is the new normal.

So they can call us the people any name they like, as if it were the answer: rioters, a mob, thugs, insurrectionists to traitors. But that solves nothing. The metamorphosis of their ever-evolving swamp continues, mostly unabated or unchallenged. Yet we stepped out of line. We stand condemned by the very swamp that brought it on.

Is democracy suddenly so fragile that it cannot be questioned or investigated? After all these months of uncivil disobedience, riots and sedition — all unchecked — now merely questioning the official process is a bridge too far.

They call the Capitol their temple of democracy. They said it was under siege yesterday. It has been under siege for years, and attacked relentlessly… along with the people who respect it.

What we ask is for an investigation to be honestly carried out and their newfound rules be examined, along with their means. We should demand nothing less. But democracy, like the freedom of press and speech, is dying on the vine and no one is trying to save it. In fact, they are pouring toxins on it put it out of its misery.

They are afraid of mob rule after we have been subjected to it for years. Media could not even report the attacks.

There is a credibility crisis in America.

Restrictions Red Line

Once again, it is just Policy in Motion(PIA) from the Left coming at us. Listen to the sound of arrogance from the “it’s science” crowd. A lot of “I don’t get it.”

But Rick Santelli steps up in the spotlight again. And the Left hates that. (Forbes)

“Santelli and Sorkin spar over COVID restrictions”

Is it Tea Party time? It’s always our health and science they are concerned with?

What science declared only big-box stores are safe and exempt?

Politics Of A Pandemic

Everyone now knows how bad an epidemic is. As if we needed a lesson on that. Indeed, it is a powerful thing. But how powerful?

Yes, a pandemic is powerful, not only how it can kill people.

But we have learned that a pandemic was powerful enough to determine who should be President of the United States and our way of life. Who knew a pandemic could do that?

Well, it even determined how we would run elections. It determined who were the winners and losers in the economy. It determined how we should educate our kids or work.

It is a very omnipresent thing, this Chinese virus from hell.

Why stop there? It should also determine world economic affairs. It should determine our global warming agenda. It can create a Great Reset. It can determine our economic system, our energy source. It should also determine what governments can do to citizens under the guise of an emergency.

“There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative.” — [from Great Reset forum site]

It is no joke. They can do all this, or anything they want, under the auspices of a “pandemic.” That means they have found a way to politicize even a pandemic. And then they easily find ways to weaponize it against every faucet of our society.

Now no one likes a pandemic. No one hopes for one. But few could have expected the ways in which it could be used against the people as a weapon. If you had serious issues about the expanse of government power before, then this tool put your fears on another level.

For instance, we also learned this pandemic could determine rules and authorize freedoms of speech, religion or assembly. And it could be weaponized to limit those rights, too.

So if you did not see a pandemic as a national security issue as well, you were in for a surprise. It was not a matter of determining rights or banning them, it was essentially a manner of control.

This China virus gave ruling elites carte blanche to do what they will to people. Connect it to global economic policies and you have a cocktail from hell.

A forum in June with world leaders inspired them all to use the pandemic to push as much globalism, climate change policy as they could. Think of the pandemic as an opportunity to install their agenda. You might call it the new green deal-maker.

“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” wrote Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, in an article published on WEF’s website. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.” – The Hill

If that were not bad enough, then any cure or vaccine easily presents another good opportunity to control people. Or, as Zeke Emanuel sees it, we need to determine who does or doesn’t get the vaccine. Of course age limits need to determine that. And a magical 75-year life span would be a good cutoff for the use of valuable resources like medicine.

Everyone see where all this is going? Turns out a pandemic can be a very useful thing, even a tool. The virus as a huge political opportunity Leftist who politicized and weaponized the entire apparatus extort it so easily that I bet many kids will not realize the way in which the pandemic was used like a tool to control or influence their lives.

But now the Left has done something even more amazing than grant all this authority to it, it has personified a pandemic into a rogue dictator that gets to control your life. It is no longer a thing. The Democrats, however, can hide their deeds behind it which keeps them unaccountable for the actions. Who knew a pandemic was that powerful?

Think about that Great Reset button next time Democrats say they are following science.

 

Exhibit B: Justin Trueau at UN conference September 29, 2020

“This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a Reset. This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to re-imagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.” — J. Trudeau, reported by Climate Depot

Speech Czars

Now we have internet monopolies who think they are the speech police, even over news organizations, a WH press secretary, a political campaign or a Congressional committee.

But that’s on the internet, so how does that all work in the streets in public?

Well, guess who protests a Free Speech rally using thugs and violence? Anti-fa, or the Left and Biden’s helpers. That group Joe thinks doesn’t exist because they are only “an idea.”

Abc 7: Tensions rise after free speech rally turns violent in San Francisco

“Anderson posted photos to social media of his bloody mouth with a front tooth missing and another hanging loosely. He said anti-fascist protesters attacked him “for no reason.””

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.

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.

Where Oh Where?

Everyone has heard of the Tunnels To Towers organization, the group that helps fallen and wounded first responders or vets with their housing or mortgage expense.

A great organization doing great work.

Well, in their ads are quotes from some of the soldiers they are helping. One line always grabs at me every time I hear it: “where do you go when home isn’t home anymore?”

Those powerful words hit me like a ton of bricks and I have no answer to the question. That is a wider question, too. Where do you go when home isn’t home anymore?

I know the context there but that is a profound thought and question worth consideration.

Dems Want A Doormat, Not A President

Democrats don’t want to elect a president; they want to elect a doormat. There is a little bit of a misconception that Democrats want a strong executive for a president.

But no they don’t. They want a suit in the office and a doormat to the White House. They want someone who the mob can demand what they want to, and have him deliver on their every whim. He or she can then rule with an iron fist on behalf of the mob.

The other misconception is Democrats want someone empathetic. They don’t want someone to feel their pain; they want someone to heal their every pain. They don’t care whether the president feels for them as long as he/she performs on the mob’s command.

Besides, “feeling your pain” is a bit condescending, isn’t it? What is that worth?

Democrats don’t want democracy either. They want mob rule. That is as long as they control the mob and it operates in their favor.

Other than that, a president can issue a lofty, Obamaesque speech occasionally to make them feel good. But what he does for them is much more important. And they are a demanding bunch of intolerant brats, with a wish list longer than War And Peace.

Joe Biden delivered an address to Democrats adding a quip about his father saying:

“My dad used to say, “Joey, I don’t expect the government to solve my problems—but I sure expect them to understand it.””

Understand it? That’s about the last thing it seemed capable of under Obama-Biden.
Now let me loosely revise that into a simple theorem of my own.

I don’t expect government to solve my problems….. But I don’t want them to get in my way and keep me down there, or cause me more problems.

I do expect government is incapable of feeling my pains when I have them. But I just don’t want it to cause the pain. And I certainly don’t need it to extort my problems.

But when government does cause me problems and pain, I have a First Amendment right that says I can spell out that problem.

So Joey is trying to create a code to live and govern by. Well, he is a little late. We see the kind of code he and Obama operated by over the years. His family is enriched by his “public service.” Public office is a self-serving position, to him, not a selfless service.

Do you think his dad always told him that? Or did his father tell him that other people’s pains and losses are just a political opportunity for him and other elected pols to extort? That a crisis is an excellent opportunity to abuse political power.

Where did those values come from, Joey? And what oath of office mentions those?

Don’t you always love getting lectured about “values” from Democrats when they prove they really have none? They do their moral preening but then take advantage of every problem or crisis, even when creating it themselves, for pure political gain. Then rub your face in it. This skill is what they are really good at – turning your pain into their gain.

Ode To Charlie Daniels

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

So this is a smattering of Charlie.

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

 

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

Pick a Side

Posted on 06.26.2020 by Charlie Daniels

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mayor Jenny Durkan’s Word Salad

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You are 0 for 2. 

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

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

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

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.

[originally titled trial run on American culture but I’ll stick to trial on American culture]

Freedom of Protest

In a country of 325 million people there are apparently so many people out there who don’t understand a basic fact. So here it is in a nutshell.

The first amendment does not grant anyone a right to destroy property.

One is a right and the other is a crime. Some conflate the two as one right. Freedom of speech and assembly does not equate to destroying property.

Many people rush to compare political sides to defend these protestors.

One big difference here between the right and left, though largely symbolic, is that a protest on the right is not followed by riots and looting. Usually they don’t leave mountains of garbage behind when it is over either.

On the left, those extra curricular rights seem to be generously included anymore.

Like most rights, they have an implied responsibility to the user. The protestors should be capable of having some self-control within their ranks. How come the right is expected to do that but the left is not?

Oh, instead they make up things about people being righteously angry and that violence is almost justified because of what they have experienced. And we’re supposed to accept that as just the way it is, unfortunately. The left turns protests into mere opportunities to lash out at the community or public where they hold them.

But then, like putting the icing on a cake, the media gives us a steady diet about “peaceful protests” – or mostly peaceful. But don’t keep count of the losers, those are the breaks..

Wouldn’t you think because people on the left have so many protests, at the drop of a hat, that they would be skilled at the process by now? Maybe they would know what is and what is not included under the rubric of protest. But no, things like burning police cars, looting and burning down buildings are just perks of a meaningful protest to them.

The Big Wet Dream

The Anti-American Dream

The quickest way to create a captive society is to educate children to hate their own freedom. Nobody’s feelings were consulted during the making of this video. Anyone who has a problem with that can drop dead. ‘The Good Censor’:

He’s right. Were they writing the Constitution and Bill of Rights today…. we’d have a whole different thing. That’s a scary thought. The fruits of that sabotage are real.
