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.

Hillbilly Wisdom

Did you ever notice that sometimes listening to the “smartest person” in the room is not necessarily the smartest thing to do? They make mistakes too. I prefer something called hillbilly wisdom. Though this used to be fairly common it is on the rare side today.

I like to think people were very blessed with something called common sense. Of course this is akin to that good old hillbilly wisdom. Many of its adherents do not put on pretenses, false or otherwise, about their decision faculties and are not recognized by letters before or after their names. They just know what they know and fictional accreditation is unnecessary. What do those letters really mean anyway?

I’m talking about common sense and a certain basic consensus in the country we all used to take for granted. It was everywhere and in everything. But it seems to be getting harder and harder to find. Instead, masquerading in its place, are things like guidance from government bureaucracies or regulations from the same. Just follow those and ask no questions is the running theory.

And heaven forbid, no matter what, do not think for yourself. That can be catastrophic, they lecture. When did all this individual critical thinking become so dangerous? I still think of that as an asset not a liability, though the elites and ruling class detest this notion. Critical thinking is something that must be squashed like a bug. This is a byproduct symptom of this new democracy they lecture about. You know, this democracy that needs to be protected and worshiped, which in realty is a lockstep mobocracy.

You are either in it or you are not.

I’m not interested in that kind of democracy they promote, or should I say demand. There is something called replacement theology and there is a replacement democracy movement, too. Killing off the filibuster because it stands in the way of the mob getting its authoritarian way is one current example. This mobocracy loved and worshiped the filibuster when they didn’t control the levers of power. But now that they achieved their ends – gaining control of power – it became totally obsolete.

So the filibuster is a relic now. It represents racism, somehow or other. Nothing could be further from the truth. So Jim Crow is the euphemism for all they hate. The filibuster was used as a tool for the minority. Now it should be discarded like a used tissue. This is where you know they have lost any sense of intellectual curiosity.

The self-anointed deciders of all things have done decided that there is no room for dissent. Everyone who doesn’t agree with them and their gifted cohorts must be expelled from the process, in both theory and fact. So they have social media and big tech, along with other corporations, do their bidding to that convenient end. “Nip it on the bud” could be their motto. Stop any skeptics or free thinkers from tinkering with their process. This has become the norm rather than the exception now.

And what is a fellow hillbilly to do? You know their prescription, sit down and shut up, and do what you are told. Is that any way to run the largest free country in the world, a country whose claim to fame is this individual common wisdom? The answer is we are as dispensable as the filibuster. Don’t bother trying to understand their rationale because there really is none. It is about power pure and simple. Just as it was with King George; their power shall reign supreme and that is all there is to it.

 

So these smartest people in the room have no answers to things. Heck, they only offer more problems and crises. Their “solutions” are specious having more to do with preserving their power than fixing anything. In fact, the objective is not fixing problems, it is breeding and using problems to their benefit. That’s their fuel; the more problems the more opportunities for them. We’ve heard them say it.

What about the hillbilly wisdom that doesn’t want any part of their chronic opportunism? Well, it simply has to be abolished or at least shoved into a black hole where it can have no meaningful affect on their agenda. We are to be scooped up in their vortex of power and scattered into oblivion, especially so we cannot talk amongst ourselves or organize, which is the greatest danger to their democracy. Free and critical thinkers are the enemy of the state. The jackboot of the system must crush it in its infancy. But what does that sound like? What kind of system does that look like?

Intellectual curiosity became intellectual catastrophe and intellectual terrorism.

These are smart and serous people, we are reminded. Media calls Biden’s appointees “very serious and smart people.” All they have to do is abolish everyone else. But when did Hillbilly wisdom, or its cousin, ever threaten and destroy the country? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-intellectual just anti-stupidity.

Biden’s America, Crazy As That Sounds

Welcome to Biden’s America. But upfront I have one simple question, when did hating America become cool? Another question is why?

We do know it is underway at some speed and the radical hate-America base is at the center of it. Biden’s America is in full bloom.

There is an open border invasion underway, economic factors including budgets and deficits are being broken far beyond anything we experienced. (we can’t even nail down a basic definition of infrastructure.)

Crime is rampant up by triple digits in many areas. Thousands of wealthy people had their private tax info exposed; war was declared against schools, energy, rights, history and culture. It is not a pretty picture.

The war on energy was kicked off the first day shutting down Keystone XL pipeline but it did not stop there. Now multiple secondary pipelines are in team Biden’s cross hairs, from N Dakota to Minnesota, to Wyoming. So pipelines are apparently like Lays potato chips, you can’t shut down just one. And shutdowns are becoming the norm.

Along with those leaked tax returns, Biden is adding 80 billion to IRS budget to hire and deploy 80,000 new agents to descend on the public. Lois Lerner eat your heart out! We can only guess at what that abuse and results will look like – or where they’ll end.

 

Corporations — in other words the private sector — are being commandeered, employed and weaponized by government against the public. These are the same people who detest the Citizens United decision, ironically. They fiercely want that decision overturned, along with Heller. Nevertheless, they are recruiting businesses to tow the radical left’s line by fear or jeer to do their political bidding.

Or, as Hitler said, he was not against people owning private property, just so they understand they are an agent of the state.

Meanwhile, the budget and debt crisis they are constructing will balloon the national debt to over 44 trillion dollars. For reference, before the pandemic hit the debt was at 17 trillion dollars. Biden’s debt spree is 8 times what Trump spent.

Biden will also attack any part of the economy which relies on fossil fuels. How can you grow and economy under that pressure? Oh, you can’t. Revealed in his budget analysis, they forecast about 1.9% growth for years out, which is stagnant. Those are optimistic projections. But if they call all their spending investment, then look at the return.

Next up they have gun rights and the second amendment in their cross hairs, too. A global corporate tax is in the works along with massive capital gains and tax hikes, which also will affect the poor and middle class. Inflation is about to make Jimmy Carter look good. And the military is being turned inside out to purge patriots.

 

The HR1 and S1 bills are drastically changing the entire political and electoral system. Dems feign complaints over state legislation to preserve the integrity of elections.

Yet we are less than 6 months into this radical anti-America agenda.

But let’s review: we never got answers or to the bottom of Hillary’s emails, Benghazi, the IRS targeting scandal, or the multifaceted 4-year coup against Trump. Flush and repeat.

Kamala Reimagined Entrepreneur

(*in my sloppy Rod Sterling voice) Just imagine, if you will, a world in which one Kamala Harris is an expert on entrepreneurship, and she is doling out solutions to a market hungry for great fresh ideas.

No, you’re right, I can’t imagine it either.

“In this moment, more than repair, we must reimagine. And after providing $60 billion in relief to small businesses, we must work to broaden access to capital and remove other barriers to success for entrepreneurs across the country.” —

[Says the swashbuckling Diva of entrepreneurs Kamala Harris in a recent expose on Kamala, the adventure capitalist, in Forbes magazine.]

I know, it’s sick. But just think, there are people out there who would believe this crap empanada.

Well, she also has the biggest portfolio of nothingness in world history.

Is their answer to everything “reimagine?” Have they reimagined accountability, too? Maybe she is reimagining the value of 600,000 dead Americans and corrupt politicians who extorted every last bit of it in their lust for power, exclusively in those “blue” business capitals of America.

What Kamala knows about entrepreneurship couldn’t even fill a campaign button. I mean that literally, folks!

Now if by entrepreneurial she actually meant ___________ ….

Old Narratives Fade To Dark

Occasionally what happens in the world of political narratives is an old narrative gives up the ghost. That is what happened this week with at least two of them.

But narratives are popular and valued today in the press and media. They take on a life larger than their own. A collective of narratives can be valued even more. But those in prominent places don’t like them to go away easily. No, it takes a lot to boot a narrative, once firmly established, to the curb. Think of all the effort spent in creating them to begin with.

1) Suddenly Joe Biden abruptly shifts to call for a second intelligence look at the origin of COVID and, more  importantly, unpopular theories which recently “gained credibility”.(WaPo) That’s because major media has begun talking about a once taboo possibility of a lab leak in Wuhan China.

So Joey decides to redouble intelligence efforts on examining the cause scenarios. Order a 90-day review to report back the findings. Then decide.

2) The second is the old narrative of “Biden the moderate.” Anyone who still believes that one must have been sprinkled with magic dust. But it was the standard go to description. Joe has never been a moderate. So you have to ask which one is not true, Joe being a progressive(radical) or his near 50 years of Senate record? Actually, the latter record was the lie that he is some moderate deal-maker. That was all created en route to get where he is.

You think if he started off like Bernie he could have gotten here? He had to lie to get people to believe he was something he wasn’t in the first place. Create a fictional profile in order to run for president. It is much easier to believe that than believe he went full-blown progressive now, under pressure.

Now the fictional narrative of Biden crumbles to reveal he is and always was a radical progressive. He didn’t need nudging from Bernie or anyone. Could we think he would do all this stuff trying to create a great progressive “legacy” if he was not a progressive? But old narratives do not like to go away easily, and only if they must. This storybook about Joe simply outlived its usefulness. And anyone who thought or believed otherwise was not paying attention to Biden. (but then who would?)

There we have two vaulted narratives that fell flat on their faces recently And it is why media’s credibility is in the toilet. I only wish people would stop accepting these phony narratives before they become so big, then are weoponized. They might not be so dangerous then.

But for people who believed Joe was some roll-up-your-sleeves moderate, get help. Its over, Joey’s cover is blown to bits. There must have been lots of people who believed that in the election. And he never got the 80 million votes they say he did either. Maybe that narrative will finally crumble in the future, too? But they do hate to give up a good narrative, don’t they?

As to the evolving COVID cause cave-hanger:

Now even this bait and switch “second look-see” is only another narrative in the making. Custom made for twitching ears. A 90-day timetable would give China time to figure out and arrange gratuity to Biden Inc. He might as well send a telegraph request for money. “Dear, Beijing, thinking of you a lot lately.”

So create a narrative that we are seriously looking at the Wuhan lab cause. Have people think he is doing a great service, by committing yet another disservice to the country. Way to go, Joe. This doesn’t mean they admit the  truth about the lab leak cause, just that the original narrative is rendered dysfunctional.

The moral of that story is if you thought Joe sold out America before, then get ready for phase two. It is shaping up to be a doozey.  

But the old narratives never go away completely they just lose cred and fade.

Ready, Willing, And Able

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Most Important Question In The World

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

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

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

It is that bad already.

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

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

What do we know?

The Democrats have no credibility at all.

Everything they do is lie.

They are at war with science and the environment.

They believe narrative replaces facts and proof.

They have vilified and demonized over half the country.

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

They are not loyal to what we know as America.

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

They want total control of government and institutions of communication.

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

They want divisions everywhere, even including a race war.

They have assembled an agenda of hate.

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

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

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

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

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

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

They are purging the military and targeting their political enemies.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Transparentless

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Downstream Politics, Upstream Revolution

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It Is Not A Design Failure

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

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

Cue the Declaration of Independence:

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

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

Things go downhill fast.

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

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

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

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

Seek Justice Reap Peace

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

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

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

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

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

Again, how about a piece of justice for all?

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

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

Broaden The Scope

Is it time to look at things more broadly? If all the emphasis has been on the never let a crisis go to waste, maybe it is time to examine the other side. I mean we have seen what they do with crises, created or not, imagine what they do when things are good?

If they can take advantage of crises, how much more can they extort good economic times? We are about to find out. It might surprise some that their extortion is a two-lane highway.

I don’t know how to prevent that from happening but it is a concern. The Socialists and Marxists will use anything to political and socioeconomic benefit they can, not only crises. For instance, we had the largest growth in the energy sector to become energy independent and what are they doing with that?

The Left cannot have that or allow us to be in that position. You would think that fact would make everyone happy but it doesn’t satisfy the Social Left. They hate it. They want to create problems so they can extort them, at least that has been their pattern.

But don’t underestimate how they can extort good circumstances as well. The Bible says beware of those who call good evil and evil good.  Maybe that is why they revert to their number one issue, race hustling. Or the inane ability to take something that is not a problem and make it the central theme or problem. Then manipulate it for maximum gain. Haven’t we been manipulated long enough?

Here is an observation. We’ve seen a great resilience in the economy. We were in boom before it but even despite the damage the pandemic and lock-downs have done. Sort of tells you what they can get away with, no? That message resonates with the Left.

My simple opinion is: Marxists think the economy is so thriving and times are so good – we are not in a world war nor in economic collapse .—that they believe they can do almost anything to it without consequence. In other words, now is the time to throw anything they at the wall. (they have been plotting for decades) 

So the good in the economy becomes the excuse for all their pipe dreams, despite the doom and gloom that they forecast. Now is the “opportunity” for their wackiest ideas, largely because they believe they can get away with them. Like we saw their craziest ideas in the campaign, now they can extend that in perpetuity because they can.

Here is my analogy for pandemic fever over the last year. They stole something valuable from you. (Call it whatever) Then they extort the theft over you and want to sell it back to you. “Remember how valuable it was?”[he he] So their solution to the whole problem is to write a check on your bank account, against your will, to pay for all their fantasies. But in the end, surprise, you still don’t get back what they took from you. Then you will be charged for whatever they gave to you, in lieu of what they stole from you.

These are not politicians but con artists.

Plan A Rolling Into AA Nonstop

The Democrats plan is unfolding as of this minute, and the plot is becoming very clear to anyone following the script. As obvious as the clock is on the wall.

That is to ride out their authoritarian control over us, government and the economy using the rubric of COVID but then, when it fizzles out, to shift the same control (now expertise) over the country under another banner – think Climate Change and illegal invasion or any other suitable, created, self imposed crisis or cause du jour.

You don’t have to think hard on that one anymore, they made it clear: COVID is only a dress rehearsal. They always build on their failures. My guess is it will be bigger and more disastrous than even a pandemic was. Maybe a dual or trifecta purpose and cause celeb? So, in fact, this was only a trail run. Get ready for the “ripper and gripper” sequel.

Now that they got people conditioned and accustomed to hunkering down to make every personal sacrifice possible, even families, what is not possible to do to the country next?

Something Wicked this way comes.

But there can be no pause in between to allow return to some semblance of normalcy because there is no more normalcy. It is gone. That has already been demolished.

But sure, even in that scenario, there will still be some winners and losers. The power elite and political brokers will decide who those are too. Together with their new election schemes they see no limits. Why should they? Is there anyone there – or legal controlling authority — to stop or prevent them. They think not.

We aren’t just dealing with the loony Left and political power anymore; we are dealing with a cocktail of evil. Let’s dispel their major notion. science in not a significant factor in any of this. (it hasn’t been) Power and politics are everything. That defies science.

The only veto you have — maybe the only one you will ever get — is in not supporting the left in the midterms. People cried wolf before but now the wolf is telling us himself.

Oh, I don’t really want to believe what I just wrote but the rocks are crying out.

Throwing Down The Gauntlet

In most major stories there is usually the good guys and the bad guys. Sometimes it is hard to tell which is which. In the past, things were simpler where those lines seemed clearly drawn. Not so now.

Today it feels more muddled and not just in the movies, where Hollywood likes to push those limitations to the max. Even intentionally confusing.

This is especially the case today in law enforcement. But still if you really look at the facts and examine it, you can tell which is which. Those lines are furthered blurred when you cannot give the benefit of doubt to one side.

So its possible you can have the old good cop bad cop routine. You can also have a good cop doing something nefarious, which doesn’t make sense. You could have a bad cop trying to do something that appears righteous, using unconventional means. Or you could have the bad cop doing the same acts that corrupt the system.

You could have a good cop not doing what he needs to do intervening. A good cop could be prevented from doing what is the right thing. Restrictions could make the right thing impossible. You have all these different scenarios outside the normal boundaries of law enforcement. But you also have cops themselves making judgments on right or wrong, with a potential for error.

Why say all this and point out these nuances? Because they become possibilities when it is not obvious who the good guy is in a situation. So it can be, or seem to be, confusing. I think people like clearer lines.

Put on top of that that we usually don’t get those kind of mitigating or condemning factors from press reports. It looks confusing at first glance.

That confusion is where a lot of things can happen, like public perception or outrage or where narratives form. Good can seem bad and bad can seem good. Wrong can be replaced by righteous motive. Right can be clouded by appearance of conspiracy. Right can be condemned for the wrong reasons.

We are human and make these judgments based on what we see and what we know at the time — which often matters. Our judgments are not prefect either. The facts can make it hard to decipher who is right or wrong?

The same thing plays out in politics. Who is right or, if both are wrong, who has the higher ground? Granted these are complex judgments but we are capable of making them, as long as we have the facts and evidence. But when we don’t have those, it makes it almost impossible to make correct conclusions. So a lot of things can hang out in the “I just don’t know” category. Those await more information for us to make those calls.

We can say it doesn’t look good or it doesn’t look bad on our first impressions, yet we just don’t know. Pending. A lot of things are pending where the jury is still out, as they say. Maybe that is a good place to be, or maybe that is not necessarily good. It all depends.

Why go through this rationale at all? Because at some point it matters in a lot of instances. Sometimes it is important and sort of requires fast conclusions where we are not able to render one. Sometimes it is important to take considerable time in making it. Thus, the rush to judgment.

Long for the days when you watched a movie when it was very obvious who was the good guy and who was the bad guy. It seemed to make things simpler. But it doesn’t seem that way today.

When you combine this with systemic problems in systems, it muddies those waters further. When there is corruption on the scale we’ve seen recently, it raises the complexity of a judgment call. While we still know that some things are obviously wrong, they are deliberately shrouded in a systemic pool of corruption to determine who is really at fault.

Remember the old line from Germans that they were only following orders. As if all these things were not enough, put on top of that historical precedents like corruption that never happened before. (never seen) Historical, unprecedented failures and corruption.

You have to use all this to preface the situation we are now in. Sure, we can have an election and get the result that some nefarious people/groups want, for their own purposes, but that doesn’t make it right or legit. It cannot legitimize the process.

Sure, we can have an investigation in search of a justification for the investigation. Sure, we can do an impeachment over things that are normal or legal to do, just because we are determined to have an impeachment.

Sure, we can fail to get answers to things, which were done collectively through the power of state, where no one can seem to be held responsible. Sure, we can have major failures of trust in our institutions then turn around to bestow more power on them, after they thoroughly abused their authority. But who is to stop these things from happening; who will prevent them?

So we can count on courts, those arbiters of the facts. But they are not always given the whole truth. What happens then? We can have faulty outcomes from those entrusted to be the guardrails for law and order.

At some point, we the people have to make our own judgments about all these things, and the consequences, but that process can get very messy. And the mileage varies.

It can get even messier when self-government is stood on its head. We were designed as a republic (if you can keep it) but are leaning toward mob rule – and not necessary a democratic mob. That is a mob which, at its heart, does not care about majority; doesn’t care who is right, doesn’t even care about the rules. It is entirely demand-based. It wants what it wants and it wants it now. It doesn’t care about deliberative, due process. It only wants to be satisfied, which by nature it can never be. It will always be wanting.

How is it that we the people have to deal with all these things and yet are expected to make the right decisions and judgments on everything? We are the guardians expected to keep that republic, but can we when its obstruction prevents that from happening?

We the people need to make some serious, life-affecting decisions. Can we save what is rightfully ours to save? Can we be depended on, by future posterity, to do the right thing given all these circumstances?

May God grant us the wisdom necessary.

Governmental Monopolies R US

Have we all noticed that when the government seizes control of something, hyper-regulates, or pays for it that the cost of it generally increases? I don’t know what economic law that is but it bears out.

Whether you agree with this popular idea or not, it looks like states are chomping at the bit for legalization of recreational marijuana. It doesn’t matter if you agree or not, they appear set to do it. Many states are in the game, the race is on.

A big part of the sales pitch is the tax revenue states are going to get. Umm-hmm, good to lawmakers. People get high and they raise their revenues. Coffers go up and people are happy. And that is the idea anyway. What’s not to like about that?

Well, what happens in the interim is the price goes up. This is no problem for government. They don’t care. In fact, they just make more money. That’s a win for all those proponents of big government. Extra costs are passed down to consumers.

Now I know a a cancer patient who has one of those handy mari-j-uana cards. That card only allows him to purchase it at official distributors. But the price is so prohibitive in those places that this card-carrying customer seeks out the street market supply anyway, which, oddly enough, is below the government vendors price. Get it?

But if government is going to drive up the cost?

So all street dealers have to do is come in under that official price and the black market is rolling. (not much of a market war against gubmint) Of course, then no one is getting any tax revenues. But like we saw with toilet paper, there is always a market if there is demand, and always those looking to cash in on it.

The first deduction to make is that black market is not going away, if that was even the idea of it. The second is that government does not compete well, if at all. This is not only on marijuana but it is a good example. Plug in that formula elsewhere, you probably get the same results. Government = rising cost.

Onward to college. In that case there is no competition so government’s monopoly is safe. Yes, there are private colleges but student loans are the same. Unless one is a cash-paying customer, which few can afford. But then you are still paying the cost in a government-influenced market. Government only adds cost; it never seems to decrease it.

Then government comes up with the popular idea to forgive (pay off) student debts, to some degree. What do you think is going to happen to college costs? Of course. The push is for 50,000 in student debt relief. So the unacceptable bottom end becomes 10,000.

Want to bet college cost will go up by almost that amount, at least? But when you get millions of people rallying and demanding it, what is going to happen? Class dismissed.

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.
