What Is Wrong With America?

I already know this is going to be a rant, so you are forewarned.

What is wrong with America? It would be simpler and easier to list what is right about America. But the Left never does that. The only thing they care to say is what in their view is wrong with America.

Hence, statures are removed, books are tossed out or banned, history is rewritten to show only negative views of America. Listening to the Left would be a Pravda goldmine or the old KGB’s best resource. (and probably is)

Now with all this negativity, there can’t be much room for any of the good about America. Something else is going on in the Left’s linguistic fantasies. They presume that if everyone is like them, in thought and belief, the world would be safe. (from what we don’t know) But if they could eliminate all people who don’t think like them, everything would be hunky dory. They can’t but it is a goal. They don’t care how it could be accomplished as long as they could get rid of us, like Hitler tried to do to the Jews.

The Bible tells us “the poor will always be with/among you.” So too the Left will always be among us. We accept this because what are the options anyway? The Left doesn’t think that way. It wants and demands complete unanimity. Their whole thought experiment is based on the concept of uniformity. Ideological purity is the goal.

The means to it is the only problem. But don’t think they aren’t working on it, theorizing and strategizing to that end. All they would have to do then is keep everyone thinking the same way, just like them. I didn’t say it was easy. That is certainly their mission. And they control a fair amount of institutional power to at least strategically attempt that.

The right, or conservative, traditional side has not barreled down that road at 100 miles per hour. We just haven’t because it is not realistic. This sort of puts us on the defense. We constantly have to make the case for why what they are doing is not a good idea. It doesn’t work but we have no other choice. We also warn them about the consequences of their schemes, to no avail. It is this constant defensive posture we seem locked into.

The Left has shown its cards, nothing short of unanimity is acceptable. We accept their plan is not possible and understand they will be with us, in some form, forever. We’ve seen nothing changes their rose-colored minds.

However, in the mean time, they are pretty horrible and miserable people to live with. You wouldn’t want them on a desert island with you.

But it really comes down to all this negativity they carry around, all the dislikes about America – or the west for that matter – sucking up all their oxygen. They know no way can they say anything good about America. Their perfection is the enemy of morality.

Now we have example after example of how this pans out with Covid. No one is right except them. So they are to the point where they are willing to make these absurd dictum. Vaccines offered us an insight into their collective mindset.

For instance, many Leftists have said that there should be rules for hospitals against treating non-vaccinated people. They already have rules for restaurants and businesses. Oh, and it doesn’t matter that the Supremes knocked down the mandate, they simply still tell businesses to enact requirements on employees.

Many more believe in a medical treatment litmus test but are not saying it. They think it. They want to make healthcare all but impossible if you are not vaccinated. This is part of what the mandates were all about. You will not be able to get services if you refuse the jab. You must be penalized and banned if you do not comply. That was only the setup.

 

Stepping into this fray are well-known people explicitly saying unvaxed people should be treated like lepers, who cannot be allowed around the rest of society. Rulemakers are the good people and non-conformists are the bad people. It sets the stage for a multitude of issues. Imagine the scenarios. This is only the current one but there will be others.

Their utopian view of society does not include diversity of opinion. It cannot. We all must think and feel the same way, or it all doesn’t work.

These elitist rule-makers would happily deny you any medical or emergency treatment if you are non-vaccinated. And they see no problems with that. This illustrates the problem we described in healthcare for years.

We told them healthcare could be rationed. We told them government control was not good over the entire industry. That it would take advantage of that control. We warned how government would use/abuse that power. They called that nonsense saying it would only ensure everyone is treated correctly. They called us conspiracists.

Well, we have exactly what we warned. Government gets to decide who gets care, how they get it, and how much they get based on its own rules. There could be an appeals process but who has time and resources for that?

The big problem I have is the amount of people who think this is a good idea – and just what the doctor ordered.

You can be denied virtually any life-saving treatment simply because you are not vaxed. That’s what they want. And if you think it requires legislation to happen, you are wrong. They just do it. They can have thousands of medical providers do it because of the investment from government, and its unilateral control.

Before we know it, we have an effective de facto policy banning those not vaccinated. But if they do it for vaccinations, what else can they do it with? Anything is the answer, anything they can describe as a danger to the greater whole or good.

Yes, that means politically too. You see how they maligned anyone who supported or voted for Trump. Now you don’t get life-saving treatment. Too bad so sad, consequences.

 

The hypocrisy is that leftists constantly rail about Jim Crow or apartheid. This is exactly what they are pushing. The black man can’t get a seat at the lunch counter; you cannot get a meal unless you prove you are vaccinated. You cannot get a flight, much less a job.

But the left doesn’t have cops around enforcing this; they have the private sector do it. They make them the watchdogs responsible or else they get fined. You start to see how the whole thing takes shape. The same way they enact new socialism, necessary compliance.

Instead of prohibiting discrimination they encourage it in all places. Codify discrimination.

We will have a complete new stasi state. Everyone complying with rules or policies of the state or unelected bureaucrats. Non-conformance is not an option, ban resistors.

But we warned them of the direction rationalized healthcare would go. We warned them about nationalizing elections. We warned them about banning and cancel culture. It didn’t matter, this is what they want. They demand ideological unanimity and will not stop until they achieve it – or a close facsimile of it.

Now to ask what is wrong with America, the answer depends on whom you ask. To Leftists, everything is wrong and can only be fixed with complete, total agreement to their irrational plans.

We can oppose or resist it but this stasi system keeps unfolding in front of our faces. The Left believes they hold one crucial card: either everything will be fixed by total unanimity (conformance) or nothing at all shall be fixed. That is supposedly our choice, which is no choice at all.

Welcome to the newer, improved radicalism – sibling of terrorism – where no one can have peace or anything else, just like healthcare, until radicals get what they want. “No justice no peace” means our utopia or bust. Total appeasement is the only solution. Are you ready for that?

Change The Tune, Then Play It Again

Hello, beloved patriots:

As the drama of another unpopular year is coming to a close, the lying Left appears to be getting a few messages. Or their ability to deny the truth bombs going off in every part of the country has reached its cosmic limits. Whichever. We are finally confronting the Left’s perception failures.

Start with Democrats abolish/defund police plank. In the last week, notable Democrats have made stunning reversal statements trying to support law and order. They tipped their hat to the crime rates, after denying them for months, suggesting we now need to re-fund and recruit police. Come on, man.

But you can hardly believe Democrats pushing anti-crime rhetoric when they have done everything possible to cause the crime wave. They must be reading the polls. 2022 is an election year, so they think they can swing around to talk about cracking down on crime.

No way, Jose, will that ever sell.

 

Biden makes a stunning statement that “there is no federal government solution to Covid.” Yet that was exactly what he ran on and promised: a federal government anti-state solution. He said he was going to “shutdown the virus.” Just as he told us he was not against fracking or gas. Then he canceled Keystone.

Well, Lying Biden seems to have had an epiphany. He managed to shutdown other things like learning in schools and pipelines in the Mid-West, but he now admits he is a helpless failure at shutting down the virus from hell, which keeps reinventing itself through new variants faster than Joe’s handlers can reload his teleprompter.

We get these occasional words of admission splashed in with the lies to make it appear Democrats are now pivoting their evil ways. No they aren’t. It is ear candy to make it seem like they are seeing the light and reversing themselves. Evidently, polls have consequences. The idea they are capable of reversing themselves is a fairytale.

 

Once again, we are going back to the land of Alice In Wonderland, where Democrats are eating on the wrong side of the mushroom. It’s Howdy Doody Time all over again. We are supposed to suspend belief to once again accept the left’s narrative on our current state of reality. Yet they are busy trying to murder reality with every breath they take.

They are at war with reality.

Even when the Left appears to be coming around to admit the truth, you cannot believe a word they say. And their motives are as corrupted as their evil plans. They haven’t given up on their failed plans, only tying to further disguise them.

 

Now Blomberg News is suggesting our greatest export to the rest of the world might be wokeism. Get that? Sure. the rest of the world should be dying to do to their countries what we are doing to ours, destroying it. Can they be serious?

After wokeism finally seems to be exposed for what it is and proven to be a Marxist tool, America is coming to a verdict to reject it. Even some of the Left’s staunchest mouthpieces have condemned the fallacies of the movement. No, that doesn’t mean it is going the way of the dinosaurs, it means they are tipping their hat to the idea that maybe it doesn’t do what or all they expected it to do. But one failed idea inevitably only leads to another rotten idea on the Left side of the tracks.

 

But they certainly can make public gestures and statements that they finally appear to understand the mistakes they made. Then again, they were not mistakes when they rolled it out because they new the damage it would cause. Now we are supposed to think they were only misguided? They were the ones committing the deception, not victims of it.

Just as we are to think that Biden is now shifting gears to get on the right side of things by admitting the state’s rights are sacrosanct in dealing with a virus? It doesn’t mean Dems changed their minds on any of these positions, like they have not abandoned Marxism. They want you to think they are pivoting.

How many times do you have to watch the same movie thinking you are going to see a different ending? Fool me once, twice, three times. Enough.

I can offer my opinion what this is all about. Leftists are witnessing the success of what conservatives have been saying for years. It is hard to hide the truth staring at us. So now they are trying to adopt some of the positions conservatives have been banging away at.

For instance, the failure of shutting down schools and remote learning. Listen to them acknowledge the policy is wrong now when they stood behind it promoting it. Now they are against shutting down schools? Really? Randi Weingarten has said her objective is only to keep schools open. Really?

Come on, man!

What’s next, will Democrats and the progressively Marxist Left now tell us they still support fossil fuels as an energy source? Will they admit we have to have a steady, reliable form of energy? Will they admit wokeism is wrecking our military? Will they admit their exuberant spend-a-thon is going to cause even more inflation and problems?

Will they admit Hillary hatched the Russia hoax against Trump and, with the help of Obama – Biden, then wove it into a coup on a sitting president? Will they admit it was all fantasy except for the cabal of treason, sedition and cover up they incorporated?

Will they admit the existence of inflation and the damage it is now causing? Will they admit that America is not a bad or evil country? Will they admit that the border needs to be closed and we cannot allow endless numbers of migrants to stream across the border? Will they admit their policy is causing illegal immigration? Will they admit crime is a problem not a solution? Will they admit they are causing crime?

 

But the people know the truth about all that and more. It is only the Left that is saturated in a phony reality, then they continue lying to explain and dismiss it as fast as the very real consequences show up. The verdict has been in on this entire agenda.

The people know the truth. In poll after poll, these ideas only get more unpopular in time. That’s why they were scrambling to push through another 5 trillion-dollar spending plan, before the truth of popular rejection was revealed. But Virginia happened, NJ happened.

 

And isn’t it odd that these fossilized Washington progressives are pushing policies or plans that will harm this country long after they are gone from earth? That is not lost on us. They want the plans to be in force way past their own expiration dates.

Irony To Hypocrisy To Decline

I’m seeing irony and hypocrisy, which is probably what I think and write about most. Not sure why since conservatives are the only ones who care about either. The left has no conscience, individually or collectively.

So Manchin is a “no” on Joe’s Build Backwards Bitter plan.

That ignited the left in ways we knew it would. Enter all the lectures about democracy when this is democracy in action. Most of the country does not agree with these nutty ideas. Who could?

It is actually Bernie’s Bill we are talking about, he wrote it. And is he ever mad at Joe Manchin now? Bernie demands a vote anyway so Joe  can vote “no” in public for the record. It turns out that Socialist Bernie, after being an independent for years, hates Manchin for being independent of the radical plantation. Just the idea Bernie Sanders could run a socialist scheme up the flagpole for everyone to salute is repulsive. Democrats like to call that democracy? There was nothing democratic or legit about any of it.

How low can the US go because I want to know?

On another level, Tucker Carlson has turned into a rock star, at least on Fox News. There was a conservative event over the weekend. Tucker was giving an interview from there and said that we are at the low point so things can’t get any worse, but they can only get better.

Will Cain on Fox was quick to disagree with that statement. He thinks we can only improve if we hit bottom, and he does not believe we have hit that point yet. He sees no real signs of it. Of course people would like to think Tucker is right that everything gets better from here. But I am all in the Cain camp and see nothing indicating we are poised for turn around – or a return to normalcy, which is no picnic either. I don’t think it is a matter of simply being optimistic or pessimistic, but a realist. What have we learned?

And while democrats still hold the reins of power, who can expect they will reverse themselves? After all, we have seen the damage they do even when in the minority. But one thing does become obvious that we are not in the incremental stages of anything. We seem to be in a precipitous decline, which goes faster than anything we have seen yet. That’s why I say, how low can we go because I really do want to know? How far, America?

Holiday From Reality

Whenever a liberal, progressive, socialist, communist tells you that “this is not a cultural thing, America and its values are not under attack,” don’t you believe it. Don’t accept that moronic anti-Americanism excuse for a minute.

Just remember every one of our holidays is under siege: Presidents’ Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Washington’s Birthday, 911, Veterans’ Day, Thanksgiving and even the day that “shall live in infamy,” December 7th. Every one of them has been attacked with regularity, just like Christmas.

Every historical marker of America is under assault, from presidents to monuments, to our wars and founding. Along with symbols like the Flag and Constitution are under constant attack. If it weren’t a pattern it might be one thing, but it is predictable and we know their arguments.

You cannot have a national holiday commemorating the USA, or our heritage, without inciting their venomous attacks. Recently, we see the left’s hatred for the 4th of July. That strikes at the heart of it all. They don’t like our Independence either. It is offensive.

Their asinine spin to explain this voluminous hatred is that every one of them offends someone, somewhere. That America even exists offends many of these anti-American zealots. It is all about the offended.

For people who want to nationalize everything under a big Federal Government, it is amazing how much hatred they have for the nation itself. Funny how they like the idea of a huge nation without borders, with an authoritarian government. What’s up with that?

They hate America but love an empire regime.

So what is their need for Sanctuary Cities, and Sanctuary States? They tell us they are proud of everything else from their identity to their heritage except the country itself. But they do love that national power.

They have also let another thing out of the bag, too.  Their resentment for our freedom. We always knew it but they denied it.  They completely gave up on that somewhere along the line.

Sure they talk about rights or they used to but it is cover. So murdering babies is about the only one they are still actively supporting. If it is not an actual right, they probably endorse it. Americanism not so much.

America On The Ropes

What is America’s future? That is a question that has riddled us for 100’s of years. America has answered that not by theorizing but in real actions. Because, after all, actions determine our future not political theories. Our future is not based on economic theory but on real time results. But there are consequences for poor actions as well.

Partly what drives this country is our world view and values as lived through our actions. No one can tell us our values are not real. We see them through history. We always hope, or often expect, that good will always win out over evil. Yet that takes effort.

Time and again we have risen to the challenges we face with determination.

So why has America become so polarized? Some will say we have always been. Some will say it is those very challenges that unite us. An example would be 911. We even distinguish between pre and post 911 realities.

Throughout the last 20 years, we have heard a lot of talk about pre vs. post 911 attitudes. It is true. We cannot afford the luxury of systemic denial.

However, I would take it a step further. A good place to start is pre-WWII mentality verses the post-WWII mentality. I see our distinction today being just as serious and just that flawed as it was then.

We’ve had leaders, too, who have risen to challenges. The last we remember was Ronald Reagan. While on the left, they idealize FDR as a hero. So today the contrast is as great as between Reagan and FDR. We cannot live in a pre-World War II mindset. In the end, that kind of denial did not succeed.

Among the Left today, they never take into account the obvious consequences of their agenda. No one fires a shot as America dismantles its defenses and status right in front of our eyes, and our enemies’. But they don’t take into account what that means in a world of rivaling evil engaged in a turf war.

They don’t consider the future that will form in a vacuum.

Do we never assume that one day an alliance of evil will mount all its forces against us? Do we never factor in our contribution to this alliance? Does anyone on the left still care? Do they think that they can have their own reality, unaffected by the world’s influences?

But all that is why Reagan and much of American people believe in peace through strength. Peace doesn’t seem to come from weakness. While that strength seems offensive to some people, it is what stands between us and decline of the west. To the left that decline is an acceptable sacrifice. It is welcomed as one of the consequences they wish to ignore.

The problem is evil does not work this way It is not content to sit in a stagnant state. It is bound to increase and get worse through less and less resistance. Appeasement to it is not the answer. One could think it all spiritual but it is also real. We see the consequences. Our children and grandchildren live with the effects of our actions. It is a huge responsibility.

On the left, responsibility has been abolished. They believe you can have the world you perceive simply by that belief, and nothing was more evident of this than the Obama-Biden years. Damn the facts and reality, simply click your heels three times and believe it is so… and voila, it will be. But the rest of the world does not operate that way. It will not accommodate the Leftists’ beliefs no matter how radical or rational they are.

We are now at that great pivotal point, after Trump was shoved aside. They’ve already cast their lots on the side of that evil. Trump himself said of the country: “there is a point at which it cannot be turned back, and we can never allow that point to be reached.”

But the left wants to make it impossible for us to turn it back. That is their huge goal. So how do you face the enemy within hell-bent against us? May God Bless America.

Don’t Ask Dems To Explain Anything

My hand told my brain it was time to write something. Well, technically my finger told my arm and it told my brain. That is the way it works. Isn’t it?

If that sounds strange, you aren’t alone. It would seem backwards or upside down and it doesn’t make much sense in a rational way.

With all the serious problems around us that we can’t ignore, there is even something worse yet. It is the tediously obnoxious explanations we get for those problems from Democrats or Leftist drones.

So I boiled it all down to one basic analogy of their excellent explanations to our real serious problems. Enjoy.

Suppose your knee hurts and you go to the doctor. You tell him “my knee hurts, doctor. I want to know if it is something serious, so could you tell me what is causing it?”

He or she says sure and examines it. He says “it is hurting because you are walking on it. Apparently you expect it not to hurt but it only hurts you because you think it does. You perceive it hurts and so it bothers you. Your perception is more the problem.”

You: “no, but what can I do about it?”

He suggests “stop letting it bother you so much, just stop thinking about it. If you stop listening, it will stop complaining so much.”

You say “I’ve been ignoring it a while but that hasn’t helped. Now it won’t let me walk or even sleep anymore. So that’s why I came to see you.”

Doctor: “look, ultimately your knee only hurts because you have one, right? I mean your knee could not hurt if you didn’t have one, correct? It obviously couldn’t hurt you then. So just be thankful you still have a knee. And be happy if it hurts which only confirms it is still there. …

“Now suck it up and work on those expectations, a lot.”

Then suppose every other doctor sounded as wacky as that one. That is crazy. But they all tell you this crap with a straight face knowing full well none of it is true or right. Who really cares anyway? Yet it is what they decided the answer should be regardless of what the problem is.

There is the perfectly illogical mindset of the Left. It has all been adequately explained because they say it and spoke it into existence. So it therefore only becomes a problem if you don’t accept their crazy explanations.

Classic Economic Fallout

Another economic problem looms on the horizon just as big and is also a political one. That is if we muddle through immediate pain at the pump, inflation and supply chain issues in tact; it will send the message to the Democrats that they can do this anytime (all the time) to endlessly spend as much for as long as they want. (which is all they know)

That idea is either this fiscal insanity takes a nasty toll on us now, or they will run up that cost exponentially in the future. Couple that with their insatiable appetite to stress the system until it breaks (Cloward-Piven) as a radical strategy, That means if we manage to avoid major catastrophe now, the catastrophic fallout in the future is going to be so big and bad nothing can help or stop it. So if we aren’t finished off now, we will be next time.

I’m not saying this can be fixed, But if you think this is bad, wait until they think they can spend with impunity at no consequence. That will be a sight.  They are only feigning concern about  spending amounts now. But phony concerns will be off.  I don’t want to think of double digit interest rates again, but even that could be understating it.

Only a view from the cheap seats. Bad as it looks, it’s the next time or future we have to think about. Consider this the stress test. At that serious breach of the system down the line, one might prefer collapse rather than the increasing calamity continuing.

Cease The Lies – just stop it

If I had only one wish for the New Year, it would have to be to cease the lies. That unfortunately will not happen soon. I guess the Democrats are addicted.

I know, we could get into the “both sides do it” debate but we all know who is doing the lying on an industrial scale here.

“We pay for every red cent in this bill.” The 5 trillion dollar bill “will cost zero.” This bill will reduce inflation and create jobs. All the people agree with it, they say.

So all the negatives we counter about it, Democrats come right back with their heads on a swivel (picture exorcist) to say it will fix the problem we say it creates.

There are far too many lies to ty to list even the biggest ones. However, a few are just so disturbing you want to pull out your hair. They get away with it because they have a license, enforced by major media and the Democrats.

We tell them we don’t like CRT taught in our schools. They tell us that CRT does not exist, and thus certainly is not used in schools. There is no CRT agenda.

We tell them their spending is not on infrastructure. They tell us how everything is infrastructure: feeding and changing the baby is infrastructure. They balk when we say it is a socialist agenda from radical commies hell-bent on destroying our country, even as they tell us they are socialists. They say we are over reacting and delving in conspiracy theories. No, they are the conspirators.

We tell them the Russian hoax was cooked up by Hillary, back-fed into our government intelligence apartus to use against a candidate/president. They say we are making it up.

Peter Strzok weaponized political campaign dirt – from foreign sources they colluded with – against our election and government. Now it is proven they were fully aware of where the information(shit) came from but they used it even to gain FISA warrants to investigate a candidate, president and his organization. No, we are trying to destroy democracy.

Democrats said we were blowing smoke and it was all justified. Now as the scant Special Counsel investigation details come out to validate their sources and methods, they simply ignore it in MSM and can’t be bothered to report it. Wouldn’t you think if they really believed the initial Hoax that they might be surprised by the facts and truth – facts left out of the Mueller Report? But no — they don’t seem very shocked.

Now we find out this administration is on a mission to pay illegal immigrants for being “separated” from their children, during the Trump administration, to the tune of over 400 grand per person. First they claimed that was not true.

But the real number for the victims was 2 million and that DOJ is engaged in a settlement with their friends in the ACLU. (That should almost be a conflict of interest right there)

But then Biden justified it and the administration is now saying it is being done to save taxpayers and the government money. Say what? “Don’t you want to save money?”

So whenever they spend money they are saving us money. How come all the people who suffered under their absurd lockdowns were not entitled to damages, inflicted by the government? Damages to people, actual citizens, are not covered but payouts are made to illegal aliens for some spurious claims of damnage.

These people are sick. Apparently the idea is to drive anyone who doesn’t agree with their radical agenda crazy, or as clinically insane as they are. A least when they get their way, they are happy sickos.

It’s the same principle as radical Islamist terrorists of Taqiyya, where adherents are encouraged to lie and deceive to accomplish radical objectives, to defend themselves.

It looks like the same thig, only these people do it with abandon without any regard for you knowing they are lying. The onus is always shifted to their opposition to prove they are lying. Once you do they say it doesn’t matter.

If you said the sky is blue and that abortion kills children; they would say “no it’s not blue and those are not children by any definition.” You say they are babies, they say they are not. You say they are offspring fetuses to which they deny it. Get it? You say life begins at conception and they say it begins when they say it does, or it doesn’t, depending what they choose. You say it is murder, they call it an act of mercy.(see mercy killings in Islamism)

They tell us the problem is that we need to lower our expectations, by a lot. When they push spending programs they say we need to raise our expectations — it should be limitless. We point out the problems at the open border. They tell us the real problem is our perception of a problem. What crisis?

That takes us up to Jennifer Granholm. She went on Bloomberg and was asked what she and the administration is doing to bring down the price of gas and energy. She laughed in his face calling it hilarious. Granholm complained about OPEC controls while chaining us more to it. She said we have to think of the long term. But there is no attempt, in the short term, to stop us from slitting our own throats. She denied they have any restrictions on fossil energy — just as they are eying up a new pipeline in Michigan for possible closure. But they admit their plan is to end the use of fossil fuels. No restricting going on here.

They tell us they don’t want to abolish cops. Their whole agenda began under the banner of abolishing the police. Then they called it “defunding” – which if you do the math means the same thing. But they deny what they are doing, even when people scream to stop defunding police. The statistics show they are eliminating cops. It was the objective, after all. But they deny that too. Not them!

They even tell us we will be safer if we eliminate the police. What nonsense. You name the problem, they say they are doing the opposite and are really fixing it.

You say they are ruining  us and destroying our country from the foundations up, and out. They tell us they are expanding the Constitution.

The point is,  I used to talk about all the wacky arguments because they needed to be brought into daylight when it was coming from margins on the left.  Now they are doing it in broad daylight echoed by the mainstream. We all see it, They deny what we see/hear.

So what the hell is it with the denial about it? You would think that there cannot be any disagreement on what they are doing in our faces. But no, they laugh at you, then they mock you, then say “no, you are wrong.” They would not ever wittingly do anything to harm the country…. except that they deliberately are.

Normalcy Is Dead

That is a declarative statement because I don’t think there is any question about it. Talking in terms of politics, normalcy is dead but when that occurred could be debated. People should be able to agree on that unless in severe denial.

Why that is important ranges the gambit. However, a recent post about world power rivalry left me thinking about this whole relationship in regards to individual countries.

So I did a little personal exercise thinking of all the people I’ve loosely known from other countries and then thought of what condition their countries are in now, as opposed to say 40-50 years ago. Or even around the time of Reagan as a milestone.

My observation and conclusion, which could be flawed and subject to my own biases, is that most of those countries were on a better trajectory years ago. Now it seems like every one of them is headed toward an opposite, questionable future.

Sure reasons could be too numerous to mention, but as a rule the political future in those countries is in jeopardy. I refer to places like Hong Kong, Venezuala, Taiwan, even Japan has some issues with respect to China. I also added Puerto Rico and Haiti in for flavor.

Yes, China was one of the countries in my short list of about 10 or so. It had some positives. A lot has changed about and in it in those years. Even the trajectory back then of China until now is dramatically different in people’s eyes. And much more so since the pandemic.

In America we like to wish the best on others, which in turn would usually be good for the US. It hasn’t really worked that way though for either of us – meaning for their future or ours. Maybe that is just wave of the times. This is tied to many coincidental factors. Maybe it is much simpler that a larger momentum is going in the wrong direction. (for all)

You could try your own thought experiment plugging in various countries of your choice. I am looking for what it tells us and I don’t like the messages that I am getting. For instance, in general is the world a much more dangerous place than it was decades ago, or not? But in this analysis, one has to be honest about it across the board.

 

That is why it seems with the US — as much as we heard about a return to normalcy during the 2020 election — we got a lot less normalcy, by any standards, than we were promised. In fact, what is normal anymore? Is it it an illusion, or some abstract?

But actually that whole idea of normalcy is very overrated. I was not too fond of that political normalcy prior to 2016 anyway. Good riddance. Except can we just finally admit that normalcy, as they define it, is not the solution in any of these problems but part of the disease? In fact, it could even be a chief cause. (I offer no proof of that)

Let us be done talking about normalcy like some aspirational goal. What is now substituted for normal has more faults than the old Minneapolis Bridge. I could stand losing a concept, or security blanket, of “normal” but I don’t like losing the entire country and way of life along with it.

But there is something more grounded and fundamental than normal. It’s called common sense. And when you lose that there is a price to pay. Things fall apart; they don’t make sense like they once did. Up is down and down is up. We lose ground quickly.

I’m not saying those other countries are suffering for the same reasons. In some ways, other countries have seemed to retain a normalcy without losing values like common sense. It is just that there are more external factors working against them than there used to be.

So the US might be unique in the reasons it is going in the wrong direction or under more threats than the past. It could be much more our fault than in those other countries. For example, as improved as things have gotten in Taiwan over the years, they are now under greater threat than ever. I can’t blame that on the Taiwan people. They didn’t cause it.

Look what happened to Hong Kong. It’s been robbed of its future. Once a thriving beacon, it suffered not due to internal struggles and threats but from a tyrannical external one.

Venezuela likely had many external pressures. Their futures might be bleak now as is ours. But theirs is not simply a matter of internal collapse, but coming from forces outside.

When a nation loses its independence and identity, shit happens. When its sovereignty is stripped away for whatever reasons, it is open to all kinds of rot from the worst places even within, none of which are positive, and evil flourishes.

May the correct force be with us. Normalcy is not the cure.

Crisis Extortion

In all these crises I’m noticing a pattern that deserves outlining.

To begin with, most of these crises are self-inflicted or caused by the policies of the regime. Ignorance and denial is actually the preferred method of reaction to mega-problems.

But aside from that, eventually someone steps in to make problems even worse. Then Democrats (in all their various forms, from activists to media, to the government) go to work figuring out how to use any crisis for the most political benefits.

Solving the problem is not the objective, finding ways to extort every problem for every political opportunity is the only objective. Why throw away a crisis until you have milked it for all its political value? Even then, there are all kinds of ways to blame others or use it against their opponent to fertilize division and hate.

Let’s add that everything Joe Biden touches becomes a crisis. He has a flare for it.

Also, this week an new poll by Rasmussen came out: Hope for America fades.”  It said that only a third of people are hopeful about America’s future. A terrible number, meaning two-thirds of people do not think America’s best days are ahead. No wonder why?

But that sentiment seems fine to the administration and Democrats. Decline is job one.

America is reaping what they’re sowing.

Biden always says “it is never a good idea to bet against America.” So why are they?

Keeping The Lies Alive

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

The Daily Sludge

We have this stuff coming at us daily whether we see it, realize it, understand it, or want to believe it. That stuff is effectively sludge. It is like getting slimed in a comedy skit.

It comes to us in the form of news coverage, events or stories. But news, like everything else including current events, has been weaponized against us. That being those of us not already indoctrinated who do not accept their radical Leftist political view.

Yes, we are all tired of saying, “Never before.”

People used to read or watch news and that was that. We understood what was happening. Now what is happening, in news and events, is all part of an attack on the country itself. (not just the events) Well, we are the only ones interested in saving it, so country is us.

 

What do I mean by all this? So here is an example and real time illustration..

The Southern border is wide open and everyone knows it. For the second month in row, it topped 200 thousand illegals coming in. But that is only one item.

By the end of the year, it will be over 2 million illegals. Consider them anchors if the majority of them bring family or relatives here in the next few years. Do the math.

So now I figure we have about seven years before the effective end of America. For the first time, I am realistically seeing the end of America in the horizon. I never thought I would say that. Maybe I  mean in the rear view mirror?

We aren’t really talking theory and speculation anymore. It is not something debatable. Of course you can disagree if you want. I’d say that is denial but knock yourselves out.

What are the odds we will do what we need to in order to stop this chain of events from happening? I am not a slim fan. That is on top of all the damage already done.

 

And that denial will not help anything. Worse yet, I don’t see it can be fixed. There may be ways to mitigate the damage but what is the real chance we could do them? If one does not follow a protocol or prescription when sick, what are the chances one gets better?

There is another factor on top of doing nothing to help fix it. In the meantime, we could do even more to accelerate it. So doing nothing is not a solution and what is the chance we will actually make it worse, exponentially?

We keep hearing about an inevitable climate change crisis. However, this political agenda does what they claim climate change is doing — destroys the country. Maybe we don’t even need their Climate change crisis. They will have the same effect without that but it won’t be from the climate, unless climate is political ideology.

So every current event or story becomes another arrow in the Left’s assault on America. It’s all been turned against us. This radical political ideology is far more dangerous and spread too far already that I don’t see it being turned around anytime soon. How long before it takes us down? Have we passed the point of return?

It is malicious how they use even news reports about it to benefit that mission. A political machine they built. That machine did not build itself and did not develop by accident.

Plug in various other things too numerous to mention, and it all only adds more fuel to this inevitable destruction. Together, it cannot be good. But I’m more optimistic than some. When I see that vision, it alarms me. The future is not looking bright.

Defining Times And Terms

It is never just the words Democrats (aka Leftists) use that are the real problem, but the definitions they apply to them that do the damage. So when you follow the Left’s definitions, strange things happen like the world turning inside out and upside down at the same time. Crazy stuff materializes out of the blue.

But in politics, there is a rule that you define your opponent before he/she can. It is all about defining your enemy. That was always the rule. Now something even better has happened. The Left has defined itself, all by itself, and it is not a good brand. So why shouldn’t we run on their own definitions of terms?

For example, all this mess everywhere – sorry I won’t list all the details – is their definition of great leadership. The other day I was reading where they called their evacuation plans in Afghanistan historical and making great progress. That is progress? Do you see what their definitions of terms look like? It is appalling.

“America is back.” There is a keeper. Then you look at what that means. OPEC is back in control, with the US back to relying on foreign energy sources. Open borders. They call a bill the For The People Act that only protects incumbent Democrats. It enshrines Democrats’ power, and then they can call destroying democracy “saving democracy.”

More definitions? Just look around, there are plenty because they love to define things. They defined failure as achievement. They say they are “making progress” on the border. Immigration is a declaration of citizenship — not a Constitutional process.

They have made justice for all into a two-tier justice system – one for them and one for others. But then they want praise for having brought “integrity” back into the system. I know these are grand terms and ideas but they are their own definitions of them.

A new green deal –  socialist spending, corruption and lies – is supposed to save the planet. Who knew you would save the world with fascist corruption? And without it, the world will die a speedy death in 7 or so years, as best they can figure. Give us lies to save the day and all of humanity. More lies, more salvation. Ideology is now science.

Abolishing police is the answer to crime. So then defunding police should also go a long way to cutting crime, significantly. That will cause the attrition of cops necessary to the real goal of abolishing police. Police are the problem not the solution. Anarchy is the solution.

Social workers can be the best law enforcement and just what America needs. The new police are the social workers. Put them in the center of domestic disputes and, guaranteed, only good things can happen from that. No need to be armed.

Get rid of ICE because if we don’t believe in borders then we don’t need any customs enforcement or immigration enforcement. Give that budget money to immigrants.

So don’t charge the criminals and then watch those crime rates go down. It’s magic I tell you. It is all in their definitions. If we can control climate, we can control crime rates.

The best one is the way they define reform. So reforming justice means less justice for people. And it will help those troubling statistics too. It’s all good.

 

How about redefining the word good by anything bad? How about calling failure success? How about calling corruption reform? How about defining everything you are opposed to as racism? How about making discrimination the law of the land? Call opposing it Jim Crow.

So when they say “law of the land” they mean discrimination and abortion. See, they have done a lot with their definitions of things. Now it is up to us just to show their definitions. Let’s call killing a baby “reproductive choice.” Shall we call it a right not a crime?

Lets subsidize institutions that promote reproductive choice (abortion) with tax dollars. And let’s put that right over and above religious liberty or speech. Let’s call freedom of speech “hate speech.” Let’s call government’s wasteful spending “investment.”

Let’s call concealing government information “transparency.”

How about screw all the white papers and campaign plans and platforms, just run on the Left’s definitions — against them. Run on their definition of leadership. Run on what their “success” means – losing and surrender. Run on what their definition of racism is. Run on their definition of prosperity. There is a lot to run on.

One of the basics in contract–making and negotiation (deal making) is defining the terms. But fortunately, Democrats have defined the terms already so we all know what they are talking about. They simplified the matter for us. Now all we have to do is use their terms as they defined. Run on their terms.

Joe offered another good one. He says America is back. So this is what America looked like? No it never did. He said from the onset of his campaign that he was fighting to restore the soul of the country. But he is not, he is replacing it with something foreign. This was never the heart and soul of the country. Just look at their definitions. Listen to him. It’s gold.

Incidentally, build back better is another defined term. It means backwards. It means undo progress, independence and prosperity. It means serfdom, birth to death.

Barrack Obama used to talk a lot about fair share. But now we know what their idea of fair share is. It is confiscating as much as they want from you until the point you can’t take it anymore, you’re broke, or they stop. (which of those is going to happen?)

We now know their definition of private and public partnership. It means private sector companies working for them, and doing what government itself is not allowed to do.

We often blame the Left for being vague, and they intentionally are, but we can take them at their definitions of their own terms. They’ve been extremely busy defining them.

Decline Of America

First, I know that is a horrible headline except what else can you call it?

So let me go through a bunch of current events and see what we come up with in the end.

Baseball got NASCARed in Colorado.

At a Rockies game, a fan yelling the name of the mascot was turned into the racial slur known as the N-word. They all ran with the story immediately. Damn the person. No checking to see if it was true or not. But then there was no apology afterward.

A year ago a rope with a noose was discovered in a NASCAR garage, or so they claimed. They were used to pull down the garage doors.

See people have been conditioned to want or choose to believe these stories, even as far fetched as they might be. Seems like since Michael Brown stories are allowed to float and even if they are not true, in the end, people still refer to the story as if it were verified.

It used to be that mayors and DA’s would preen themselves by cracking down on crime, particularly in election years, to make their records look better. It was so common even the  criminals knew it. If it were an election year, criminals beware.

Now the reverse is true. The same public officials encourage crime especially prior to elections. No prosecutions, no bail, defund the police are popular campaign themes to the left. Some try to deny it and some repeat the slogans, but it is their position. Apparently that is what the Left wants because they never condemn the pro-criminal platform.

Afghanistan has turned into another debacle. They are shredding documents in the embassy and scrambling for a last ditch exit. We said it all along but Joe said America would not see another Saigon episode. Our equipment and hardware are now in the hands of the Taliban. Don’t pay attention to your lying eyes. Memo to Democrats: that is what an insurgency and coup looks like. But Joe is doing the same thing to America. Poof!

Schools used to be the basis of the Democrat platform, or that was their mantra. They were protecting public education. Now schools are unsafe.

Now the left is single-handedly destroying public education in front of our faces — rather than behind our backs. Suddenly schools are too dangerous for our kids and teachers. They are now pushing a home-school hybrid. And truly the only thing Democrats care to protect are teachers’ unions. Truth confirmed: screw kids and schools, unions rule.

Democrats always wanted to force people to live in large metropolitan cities. Now they are doing everything to drive people out of them.(the ones who can afford to leave) People feel they have no choice to save themselves and their family. What metropolitan dream? Thugs, gangs and criminals are in control, whether it is on the streets or in political offices.

Raising taxes used to be the forbidden taboo of campaigns or election politics. Now it is all they want to talk about. The more the better, the higher the better. Now they sock to everyone while saying only rich people’s taxes will be going up. We all pay dearly.

The left used to deny they supported socialism. But now a recent Fox poll says a solid majority of Democrats prefer socialism. (59%) Remember in Iowa in 2016, the nation was shocked to find that 40+% of Democrats said they were socialists. So they have been working on it for years and now it is a full-blown majority. They are proud socialists too.

Democrats first tried to tell us there was no inflation happening. Then when it was proven, they switched to tell us it was only temporary. They said Republicans defunded police.

It used to be you could not just spend endless amounts of money and create largess just to keep yourself in office. No, that is now the only way. But remember when increasing the national debt was a bad thing? Now it is the duty of government to spend as much as quickly as they can. Damn the debt. They turned endless spending into a moral principle.

Big-spending is now an asset not a liability. And if you don’t agree then you are wrong. They even started a new slogan: deficits don’t matter.

You always thought national security was a real issue. Not anymore. Turns out that the less security you have the better off you are. So that is why we don’t need borders. Uncontrolled, open borders is now considered security, even in a pandemic.

If all this sounds crazy, as I have said many times, it really is not when they are serious about it. Crazy would mean they were unaware of the consequences.

But that is another thing that has changed, Democrats now declared that there are no consequences for their actions. The minute consequences rear their ugly heads, just pretend they don’t really exist. Then run around reframing them as a good thing. Pouring more lies on top of the heap is the easy part. But as a rule, consequences don’t matter.

See it makes it easier when you can just do what you really want and ignore consequences, which don’t exist. Then you can do anything and no explaining it in the first place.

Then it comes back to the country. We all used to think and agree that America was worth saving. But we all do not agree on that anymore. A sad state of the state.

I guess the whole point and conclusion you can draw from all this is that we are the only ones who still care. It is hard to persuade people of the right position when they don’t care. They don’t care about America or the consequences for what they are determined to do. I suppose it did take a while to get to this level but, like the Taliban in Afghanistan, they are moving at breakneck speed now. Damn all consequences.

The Yellow Brick Train Wreck

I fear, with all my better senses, that we are in a very strange place and it is starting to remind me a lot of another time in the past.

Before I get to that, does it seem to anyone else like the powers that be — in all their forms – are desperately trying to erase the last president from digital memory? Which conveniently leads us back to a default time before 2016 happened.

However, this strange place is like a bad movie that is half religion and half radical ideology. Make it radical religion. It is a plot everyone knows as I do. Follow along, it goes like this.

A guy comes into the presidency with no experience at anything, even in the private sector. He has no leadership skill, having never led anything except the line at an ice cream stand. Anyway, it goes that he came in sounding like some righteous scribe that could do no wrong. Pompous arrogance was dripping from every move. His only resume provided was his campaign, as checkered and questionable as that was.

So he actually gets the gig, against the odds and advice of our better angels. One of his repeated points all through his long-winded campaign was that he was bringing welcome change, boasting a list of demographics that would choke an elephant. He was going to help each and every identity group.

You only had to find where you fit in on the list, but surely you were on it. He had a drop down list from A-Z on his campaign website called change you can believe in. Plug yourself into the mainframe and enjoy the ride. All he required at every turn was to keep believing in the change he was promising. And apologize for all our past allegiances because loyalty to him now was the only thing that mattered. It was a faith-based formula.

He even ran his second campaign for reelection on simply “keep believing.” (it had worked so well the first time around) But believing in exactly what was never clear, except the transformational change he promised. The stars and planets were aligned, the tides would turn and sea levels would cease to rise. It was so cool how all you had to do was believe, period, and this whole transformation would mysteriously take place. Then it would operate on a momentum of its own. Nothing could stop it.

 

If you clicked your heels three times and believed, you were going to the grand ball and, in fact, everyday would be another ball. This time the chariot did not have to whisk you home by midnight. There was no chariot and no curfew. The enchantment would not end once started. You did not have to ever worry about returning to reality because that was the point: changing reality forever more. Speak it into existence and it is, and so it shall be.

This pied piper, then, would create an elaborate fantasy in front of us where the whole world would cooperate because it was such an enchanting theme. It would cast a spell of goodwill everywhere you turned.

So this was the fantasy; who could refuse it as billed? It was perfect as fantasies go. No one would say it couldn’t work; in fact, everyone was committed to the itinerary. They all desired to believe. It was like stepping into a time machine and setting the destination knob to ecstasy, to satisfy your deepest desires. That is how they sold it.

Only this time there would be no naysayers, or dissenters and no one saying it could not be done. Actually, even media went along with the ride, touting their own guarantees of utopia. Everything would be beautiful just as the brochure described. What could go wrong? Nothing, because a magical positive energy was with us all.

But, as the story continued along, there was only one small condition that would surely not threaten all the great expectations. It was simply that we all had to keep on believing whatever storms arose. To not believe would be dangerous, fashionably unthinkable.

 

No matter what might roll out in front of you, that belief was the anecdote or to any problems that dare stand in our way. The other beauty of this whole plan was it did not matter what policies were enacted, or even whatever faults occurred, the magic belief was more than enough to cancel out potential defeat from any formidable foes before they gained a foothold. Reality was no challenge for this magical belief either. It would be seduced into submission with the plan. All in sync by belief.

A faith-based campaign, election and presidency. 2 terms of change you can believe in.

As fairy tales go, we know, there is always some glitch no matter how good they are. You didn’t need Edgar Allan Poe or Alfred Hitchcock to write one for this. Robert Frost may have written about two roads diverging, but in this story there was only one path and no options. There was a yellow wood but only one mystical path that may as well have been named impossibility.

As the story unfolded, all did not go according to plan because it could not deliver on everything. Many expectations collided, even with one another. There still was only one path and we were on it. At any sign of problems, the merry band of expedition organizers would lecture people to believe a little harder, and just a little longer. Just apply faith in the face of gaslighting. Sing some praises to assuage the rosy path.

It did work pretty well, judging by what press and media wrote about things. They were determined to make this excellent adventure a success. Not for lack of trying, as they say.

 

Unfortunately, we never skipped to the solution part because no one would admit the problem in the first place, early enough. A country should not be tormented that way, for that long and force-fed the garbage that we were. Now we are back to that script.

So if you do not see parallels, yet, that is okay because I see enough for both of us. We are still, or back, under the illusion of “keep believing” despite what you see happening. Only now the minions are better trained, more experienced. Their lob is keep believing.

They surrendered their will long ago. But they had to retain the will to believe. Once they made up their mind to that, almost nothing would affect their dreamy perception. They want to believe as strongly as they did for 8 years. You can see it everywhere. They eagerly will themselves to believe – in what doesn’t matter.

When Jen Psaki speaks from the pressroom, media are pre-committed to want to believe. They are predisposed to accept anything she says. They want to believe Joe Biden is all right, competent to lead the country and military. They assumed that default. Their will to believe invokes their faith. It makes Jen’s job of lying so much easier. Heck, the press might volunteer good answers to their own questions. But they are committed now.

 

It is one thing if we have a sickness in the country, namely with misguided belief in Marxism or socialism or communism, but when the sickness is exuding from every office and orifice in the administration, we don’t have a problem we are the problem. As in that administration, he had people so compromised they could not change course even  if they wanted to. They wanted it all to be so badly. That Nigerian email really was real!

They would go down with the ship if need be.(could never happen) That is exactly the type of loyal commitment he and the administration sought, needed and so depended on.

Lucky for them that base commitment, willingness to believe, never faltered. Now the same required commitment is back, transferred upon another. A continuation of where they left off, to seal the deal and make it irreversible. What could go wrong? Incestuous will to believe remains high. Denial and cognitive dissonance are making epic strides.

Of course self-awareness is MIA, or at least sitting in the backseat sucking on a pacifier.

The Ire Of The People Up For Grabs

What is the ire of the people? I’m not trying to be snarky but ask because every time the Left pushes a radical issue, they present it as the ire of the people screaming — as in the masses have spoken. You might expect a dramatic gong sounding in the background.

Discussion is over. Debate is done, and the only decision remaining is the price. That’s how they see it. The people are mad. If it were only so. The drama is high and Democrats lie.

But this is how they frame their demands. They are also constantly trying to stir the anger, angst and animosity in some segment of people to try to make their case.

As in everything the Left does, presentation is key. And that can be as radical as they are; nothing is off the table. Violence or whatever is only used to add legitimacy and importance to the issue —  instead of minimizing it. So they can’t go wrong with rioting, looting, violence, or burning down the town. The more the better. It demonstrates “passion.”

The right doesn’t operate that way — or hasn’t. They take a deliberative approach using dialogue, reason, persuasion and process. But those don’t matter to the left. It feels it owns process. We like to believe our methods will eventually work. But not so much.

The Left seems to gain as we sit talking about it. Increasingly, Democrat  legislators act the same way using Leftist tactics. Force is glorified, and any means to the desired ends.

On the right, legislators act the same way the right always has, with reason and dialogue. (often to no one because the Left is not interested) Always asserting that we can win this or that battle. Soldier on righteously. On and on it goes, zzzzzzz.

Meanwhile, the scoreboard tilts in the Left’s favor. Goalposts are often moved. We take note but keep applying the same tactics of reason and dialogue, peppered with passion and persuasion. Have you noticed lately how irrelevant reason has become?

There can be no denying the goalposts have shifted over the years. And we must admit fundamentally that the left and right do not value the same things, or see reality the same way. Let’s not kid ourselves. They are trained in political gain.

But there is such a time and place for honesty, even if it is in small doses. So let us be honest for a minute what the ire of the people is. We know, as the Declaration states that people are known to tolerate sufferable harm for so long, but there is a limit to tolerance. It is not endless tolerance to evil. Eventually, intolerance becomes a welcome asset.

Much of what we see rolled out in front of us are not sufferable evils, but intolerable ones.

What gets most normal, common people’s ire up is when it affects them personally. Since personal freedom, faith and family are things we value, those grievances can grab and focus our attention like nothing else. (rights and freedom are non-negotiable)

Go after our freedom, job, home, attack our family, our way of life; mess with our health, restrict our income; mess with our security; or mess with our kids, their education, schools and their future; and you have got our undivided attention. It is personal. That is where the ire of the people lies. We take it all as personally as it is. It is not some phony activism but very real. We tend to respond the same way, as the personal grievance it is.

But when you hear and watch this phony outrage-activism roll out prepackaged on the Left, they always claim to speak for the ire of the people. That is the organizers and Marxist leaders claim to speak for “victims” which they almost never are.

They are forever telling us what Americans or “most Americans” want. Who are they? Who made them the spokesmen for Joe America? They cite polls or selective sources to make their point. Then they move to preferred violence, looting and burning methods.

But people don’t like that. It offends our sense of fairness. The left believes it will get what they want, which is all that matters. That their violence can be ignored, denied and excused to justify whatever their cause.

I suggest they are doing all the above with alarming, deliberate ease to insult the integrity of the people’s sensibilities. The left can try to channel, redefine or nterpret the ire of the people as they like, but we know what it is. After all, that is about all we have.

So we know where the real ire of the people lies, and what it really is. Suppose we start acting like it? Doing so should not require any apologies. It is not a fictional demographic.

“Viva la Ire!”….  Too soon?

In Pursuit Of Life, Liberty And Happiness

It’s amazing that so much can happen over a couple decades. For instance Big Tech grew up and became Big Government. But it kept all its childhood protections.

Jen Psaki told us right from the WH press room that yes, they were in regular contact with Facebook and flagged many posts for FB action. Facebook also admits going out its way to accomplish WH objectives removing content. Psaki called it misinformation.

No, it’s about votes as it always is with Democrats. It’s all about political power, to use it and abuse it. The WH said it is concerned about the numbers of unvaccinated. Then they propose a vaccination drive to knock on some doors.  .

The next day reports of Democrat political organizers surfaced in Virginia knocking on doors. Who else would they enlist but political organizers, the same people who get out the vote?  Is everything about electioneering to Democrats? The simple answer is yes.

Jen Psaki also declared misinformation public enemy number one. Actually people’s voices are the enemy. They need to use their Facebook Fascist friends to ferret out their enemies. And they gladly comply.

So anything Biden’s administration doesn’t like or agree with is labeled misinformation and gets put in the hopper. Now its over COVID, or what they admitted to so far, but it could be applied to anything. And it will be, just call it misinformation..

Notice how every once in a while Democrats will come right out and tell you what they are doing? And when they do no one cares. Media sighs.

 

How sinister that the Left want to create a narrative about suppressing votes. The real story is Democrats want to suppress speech, the First Amend and literally their opponents. Their agenda is broad and drastic: to suppress life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

The Abortion party suppresses life and liberty everyday. They don’t just suspend they terminate it. End of the problem.

But it is the votes stupid. They care about votes more than life. Actually, it is not really votes they care about; it is the power they extort from them. Or the power they can use against their political enemies. And the power to concentrate and keep that power.

The same power they use in the abortion industry over life. Have you ever seen people more anti-life than Democrats, or more power hungry?

Big Tech and Planned Parenthood, two of Democrats’ greatest empowered lobbies. Censoring speech and canceling life of, by and for government’s favor.

Hippy-Sippy Government Says

The government is not good at fighting culture wars. They don’t make good cultural warriors, to whom it concerns. But that doesn’t seem to matter.

Imagine if back in the 60’s the government was promoting bell-bottom jeans and tie-die shirts. I think things would have turned out differently. Suddenly people would not want bell-bottoms if “the man” said you had to wear them.

Americans have had a revolutionary nature to big government dictates, at least historically. They tend to rebel against socio-politco mandates from on high. In fact that is what the bell-bottom craze was all about. It was counter culture as the “new mother nature taking over.” Get aboard.

But create a new government mandate and see how people respond? Imagine if they said, again in the 60’s, that all men should grow their hair as long as possible or that it would subsidize anyone getting tattooed. Imagine what would have happened? If government said people should “drop out and turn on” to LSD, it could have launched the beginning of the end of psychedelics.

And the people, at some point along that experiment, would have probably decided, “government is not really your friend.” Right, the government is not your big brother and is not always looking out for your best interests. But just imagine if people fell for such nonsense like government as the great trendsetter? Then, ultimately, it could also decide who lives and dies. Sooner or later people would have woken up and said it was nonsense.

So we don’t expect government to have our best interests at its heart. In fact there is certain inherent distrust for government on that cultural and socio-politico level. And we already know it doesn’t work. So why would we want that?

Actually we don’t, really. But that would be news to some who now think government mandates are the best. And it has the time and resources to come up with all sorts of dictates, in all kinds of places, like the new green deal. Yes they can and they will.

Do people follow along with all these dictates like puppies? Is that the way this works? Try explaining that to woke leftists. I say all that to suggest this is exactly what is happening.

Government is the great trendsetter and cultural warrior. It determines our culture and even battles within it. We are to follow along and accept it as the great Ayatollah of culture. Put it at the head of the proverbial family, too, so it controls everything in the culture, or aspires to – free rein for government supreme. Speech, style, terms — it has it all.

It has an army of brownshirts to facilitate and enforce its mandates. Some are quite happy about that and think it should. Many of these starry-eyed utopians are former rebels of the sixties. How did that happen? Now gubmint is their boss.

Suddenly everything the government does is good and for good reasons. They are giving a moral accreditation to government it never had, in areas it should not have control over. But the hard line leftists, who include most of Democrats’ Party, now think it is justified because they control the entire apparatus.

We also took government from the distrusted phase to the ultimate culture guru. They applied a moral component it never had, with morality controls it should never have down to individual liberty and lifestyle, what you eat. This morality is most concerning.

But meanwhile, the real truth behind the curtain is this new government morality lies, cheats and steals to achieve its ugly ends. (look what it did in over the last 5 years with Trump and people opposing it) It has license to do whatever it wants with no oversight to stop it. Surveillance to rigging elections, no bounds. And “seven ways to Sunday…”

Don’t like who is getting elected? Oppose and stop them. Use intelligence for political purposes. Lie to do it all, then lie and cheat to cover it up. But remember, there is no controlling legal authority to prevent it. That is the way the system works.

The Left is fine with all that. In fact they demand more of it; more covert action, more control from on high. Do it all while aligning itself with media, big tech and institutions to carry out its collective, ideological desires. And the best part is that no one is ever held accountable. So that trendsetting, cultural behemoth now wants us to be ashamed of America’s history. It’s the cool thing, kids, so tell all your friends.

Just to prove the point, we see leftists take to the streets to march and Democrat pols show up to lead the parade. The leftists inside the government now protest against it. So liberals, progressives, socialists and commies of all stripes, this is your utopia.

The counterculture is now the moral majority but don’t tell them that, it might scare them and ignite their microaggression sensitivities. It could short-circuit the entire thing.

Right on schedule, Al Sharpton’s race circus went to consult the White House. Sharpton said this will blossom into a summer of protest, to get back into the streets. (did they ever leave?) The full cooperation and alliance with the administration is clear. No separation between them. Government is leading the culture war. “More Kool-Aid, please.”

 

(*I think I hear echoes of the 5th Dimension’s Age of Aquarius and, as Jagger said, it’s a “Bitch.”  Those “minds to liberation” are taking a nice, long hiatus now.)

Lifestyle Of A Nation

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

Reimagining all the beautiful people.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Lifestyle changes are the prescription and destination.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Some Say Treason

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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