Flashback To 1990’s And Crime

I saw a news feed headline that crime and inflation are at the top of voters’ concerns and, momentarily, it caused a flashback to the 90’s. What a strange trip, indeed.

Crime a top concern and mood for Congress souring deep into the country’s psyche? Damn. It was time for a plan, something new. Along came Newt Gingrich riding to the rescue, Teddy Roosevelt style. There were probably a lot of deniers about the atmosphere around the halls in the Capitol. Sound familiar?

But Newt knew what the country knew, it was time for change and the people’s pet peeve had legs. (lots of them) Remember it was the same dissatisfaction that cost Bush Sr the top job. He wasn’t focused on domestic policy. Betting on Clinton was no jackpot.

The stage was set for Newt’s revolution and contract with America. Still there were many deniers until it happened. Remember Clinton’s pivot to save his ass?

Public mood seems a lot the same today. Crime and policing are issues. We’ve taken a kick in the gut. Then you watch a Democrat majority turn around to push a faux voter rights bill that no one seems to care about. (or sees the need for)

As if we the people were not already fed up enough with the Congressional jackknife.

Word is Newt is now working with Kevin McCarthy, and other Republicans, on a new contract. After past talk of doing it fizzled before, now seems like the right time. I can say it is time for something new because we are as disgusted as I can remember.

Notice though that when that happens, a lot of people in the beltway don’t know it or can’t see it coming. It usually works that way for some reason. (shout out to Liz Cheney)

The people may get it wrong a lot, but once in a while they do get right. Like in 2016 when they sent Trump into the White House. But there were a lot of denials about that too.

 

So when homicides busted the record in LA in 1992, it got people’s attention. Violent crimes also spiked by 41% in Kansas that year.

But when you read the statistical reports, crime rates of many types saw declines in the late 90’s. What accounted for that? Well, a lot of laws were passed on crime, such as juveniles and sex offender registries. “40 states enacted crime legislation pertaining to adults.” Read about it here.

They were getting tough on crime. Sure prison numbers increased. What you might expect to happen. But in those greater statistics is another surprise. In 2016, crime increased by 8.91% from 2015. Crime also increased in 2015 by 11.37% over 2014.

Then guess what happened later? In 2017 and 2018 it decreased.  Now we are hearing all the calls to release prisoners, no bail, revolving doors, or not to prosecute crime to start with. The people are seeing and living the results of these policies. Cities are turning into hellholes. And people are tired of it.

 

Of course all this minutia and attitude of the people is lost on Congress Crawlers. People are sick of the George Soros screenplay. Congress isn’t liked any better either.

See how this works?

But don’t expect Congress to get the message until it happens, after the fact. Even though history is clear about people getting fed up with them. Sure there have to be some members that have just enough brains to read the writing on the wall. That might explain all the members leaving, you know, “to spend more quality time with their families.”

Regardless whether people show up protesting in the streets is not the point. The stage is set that they are so ready for change. And I bet a good many of them have seen the movie before and remember. Newt being one of them.

I can only hope Republicans do come up with some good contract/plan. But the die is already cast, in my opinion. People know what they want. They don’t need to be spoon fed or told. Then after they expect results to follow.

Running and campaigning against Democrats?

Yeah, what is the problem with that? Some say you cannot just run against Democrats. Sorry, we have living videotape documentation. They damn sure better use it. I don’t need wonky policy talk. Say what you mean, what you will do and by golly, just do it. We don’t need fancy verbiage or power point lists. I can give you all the lists you need of problems. Isn’t that enough of an indictment to make the case?

Then let the Democrats try to deny those are very real problems. (they don’t want us comparing notes) Let everyone know what we are fed up with. If you can’t do that, how can you present any alternative? Those commercials can be graphic. Like we haven’t seen it or read about it in the news? We’re all adults here, and we have a justifiable bitch.

The people have a voice in this and need to be heard, too, not just pontificating politicians.

We saw a preview of the process in VA. Also in NJ, if it wasn’t mysteriously pulled out for Democrats. Time is now or never. Take all the territory we can get, because we’re going to need it. Let Democrats have hellhole cities they ran into the ground. Let them hold onto them like the trophies of failures. We’ll circle and surround them everywhere. There should be no way out or escape for Democrats. Let them drown in their swamp.

Oh, it can be a slow process; I don’t really care. Playing footsie games never wins. Personally, I want a crystal clear indictment. And let it flow like a river.

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?

Bunnies and Ice Cream Propaganda Tour

The irony of Jen Psaki skewering a WH reporter about trying to propose “bunny rabbits and ice cream” legislation is too rich.

It must be lost on Hot Psaki that they’ve been doing the ice cream-Joe theme since the campaign. Remember his chocolate chocolate chip? Then on Christmas week they floated out the press-friendly video of Biden’s with a new WH puppy, Commander, on the beach.

So Jen, the only thing missing is the bunny rabbits. And by golly, as soon as the White House can locate some in the supply chain, before Easter, I’m sure we will get them too. Her snarky sarcasm has no limits.

Everybody loves bunny rabbits but hates Joe Biden. Let’s go Brandon!

All that of course is only to cover that Joe Biden’s poll numbers are in the pits at a stealthy 33% approval. (Who are they?) But yes, a congratulations is in order for how-low-can-you-go Joe.

Who would’ve thought a part-time president could get so far? He’s got the worst polls in history for a part-timer. Putting in 3 days a week is catching up with him fast. What will their clever White House think of next …….
a weekend at Brandon’s?

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.

Biden Should Listen To The Voices?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Raising Bad

I have been working on writing a novel. It’s about a power-hungry local politician who has always been obsessed with running for office. After nearly 50 years, and almost as many attempts, he settled on being a running mate as VP.

After that unremarkable event, he still had the main obsession. So he had his personal political records sealed in a local university for safekeeping and then ran without even campaigning for the job he was obsessed with getting.

But early on he made a deal with media not to pry into his record and support him. For their own reasons, they complied with everything even providing a top historian to write speeches for him. He held few events limited to dozens of people for 15-minute rambling screeds that he could be a better president. Then he would disappear.

By all markers, he was losing even his own primary but didn’t seem to care. He was assured the powers that be would send him to the nomination.

Unexpectedly to some, he succeeded in winning nomination but retained the same unconventional, non-campaign strategy he had all along. Months went by with the same detracted, disconjointed candidate and… son of a bitch, he won. At least that is what they declared about the polls at the election. Media applauded him the new president.

Now there is one analogy here to a person who came into something very easy: if he/she would value it as much as if they worked for it? As the analogy fit to a tee, he didn’t. After all, what had it really cost him? Very little. It had always been his obsession, so he felt more than entitled to it. It was his for the taking – no matter what was done to take it.

Of course it all went to his swollen head, which had already experienced 2 past aneurysms. The theme suggests he actually wished himself into the office. But the job was never the point of it all to start with; it was the status, stature and influence of the job that mattered. He cared little about anything else, except for a flaunting legacy..

To him, it was a golden key to what he hadn’t already grifted along his half-century path en route. That is all it was, a scheme. Corrupt, but one that apparently worked. Cha-ching.

 

After decades in “the business,” he had a slew of people in tow to install the forbidden entrappings to the office. Then sell access he knew was in demand. He held the cards and bagmen to make it work, by greedy operators in their own right. They had established a system and contacts over the years. He basically had to do nothing and it would all come to him — all to support the lavish lifestyle that the humble-styled politician had become accustomed to. The best part about it was all he had to do was as little as possible. The stage was already set for the agenda, which was a distant second to his self-interests.

After a ton of pre-written executive orders, he settled in for a term of doing nothing himself while the apparatus of power revolved around him. It worked just as he expected.

There were no badgering press and stories to worry about. Any potentially threatening issues that did arise were swiftly blasted by mainstream media, often before getting rooted, or eventually by his AG gun for hire.

Then all the numbers of how well he and the country were doing were spun into a fantastic pack of lies. Truth be told — and it never ever was — this was as good of a lying apparatus as anyone had ever constructed. They did most of it for him. He had to do nothing. The less the better, which gave him lots of personal time to spend on his real priorities.

All the henchmen he picked voluntarily did their part in keeping anything from threatening his unilateral power. And he used that power and authority to go after his political enemies, openly. It worked so well that he didn’t have to ask subordinates. They attacked his enemies for him without flinching.

That alone would seem phenomenal in itself. But actually in the years before, they collectively used much the same powers to attack and undermine the previous president. So they already had treason and sedition in their resume. That gave them all a vested interest in keeping the train of abuses going to hide and cover that era. This objective gave each of them all the motive to operate a unified front to guard their own exposure.

Once in, they were committed to see it through. Naturally, all would cover up the truth or go down trying. But that coup of the recent past would fade into the background next to their latest schemes. That was the plan. It must go on or else.

 

To avoid a spoiler to the future book, I cannot divulge much more. Ah oh, I’ve given it away, haven’t I? I picture Jeff Dunham’s puppet Walter as the image for the guy, though that is probably not fair to Dunham or Walter. Wow, the book just writes itself.

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?

Joe and Jen Tag Team Show – No Tell

Chop Suey Joey served with a Hot Psaki chaser.

Man, that’s a Lying Biden smorgasbord.

This is never going away, no matter how much dementia Joe gets.
Miranda Devine wrote in NY Post:

As Jim talked, Bobulinski marveled at the political risk to Joe’s career if his family’s flagrant influence peddling during his vice presidency came to light.

“How are you guys getting away with this?” he finally asked. “Aren’t you concerned that you’re going to put your brother’s [2020] presidential campaign at risk? You know, the Chinese, the stuff that you guys have been doing already in 2015 and 2016, around the world?”

Jim chuckled and looked knowingly at Bobulinski.

“Plausible deniability,” he said, using a term coined by the CIA during the Kennedy administration to describe the practice of keeping the president uninformed about illegal or unsavory activity so he can plausibly deny knowing anything if it becomes public knowledge.

https://nypost.com/2021/11/29/joe-biden-expected-10-percent-cut-in-deal-with-a-chinese-giant/

Over 4 years later, they are still getting away with it but now assisted by media.

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.

Poopy Pants Talks To Putin

Biden holds high-level meeting with Putin on secret video tele-comms, on the cusp of Russia staging 175,000 troops on Ukraine’s border. But the real headline is mundane or further shrouded in the secrecy of what was said.

The social media world knows Poopy Pants is just another nickname for Biden – just ask UK’s top Duchess of Cornwall, or insiders close to the Vatican for the play-by-play.

But all we hear from are talking heads, whether they be pundits, analysts, politicians or deadpan anchors for news networks. We don’t hear from the sources, as in this case.

Jake Sullivan ran out to translate for Poopy Pants, rather than have double-aneurysm Joey do two major events in one day. A two-hour conversation with Puti was more than enough stress and activity for hiding Biden. So a third-party interpretation is just what the White House Doc Klain ordered.

And the fluffer-nutter of a press conference with the aspiring Jake-the snake-Sullivan was just the type of low-info briefing the Biden operation loves. Tell them nothing!

Back to pundits verses patriots, But I am a fan of Larry Kudlow. He summed it up nicely by saying all this emphasis on “if” Putin or Russia invades Ukraine was a huge tactical error. What about all they are doing now, and why move the goalpost to the what if? Instead it was all tough talk about “if” they invade, then this or that happens.

Of course, all that posturing and red-line threatening puts us back on the defense rather than playing offense with the Moscow thug. I’ve never been partial to Russia but will commend Vlad if he does something right. In this case, he set the stage by appearing alone at a table verses Biden with his team of hacks. What message is bumbling Biden sending? Who knows? Is it encrypted telepathy?

Even Sullivan’s translation did not reveal real details of their 2-hour chat. He expressed the need for secrecy and confidentiality over transparency. Why, what does Biden have to hide? Remember the Biden Administration had already gifted a nice START Treaty extension/renewal from his first days in office. Except Vladimir didn’t get anything for Biden for Christmas.

No matter. Why can’t Biden be transparent? Is he afraid of what Putin might bring up? Is he concerned about the stakes when his son is knee-deep in grifting for Chop-Suey Joey? Is there a problem with us knowing what was really said?

As Larry Kudlow said, it went all about the “if you invade” instead of the substance of what Russia is engaged in doing. A little late now. We know Biden has already given Putin quite a lot of gains for one year. Is he preparing to offer him more? We can only speculate, but based on the history I think it is fair to surmise.

Once again, as in their meeting before, Putin is not shy about running to microphones to give his side’s interpretation. Maybe Joe would prefer we get details from the KGB side of the stage? You know, if it were Trump they would demand release of the full unedited transcript, complete with pictures.

Not Buzzard Brains Biden, the guy who keeps all of his 4 decades of records sealed in a vault at the Delaware University. Hands off all the inter-person communications and notes. You are not getting those family jewels.

I think we can safely assume that nothing Biden said will prevent Putin from what he plans on doing. That was the purpose of his plans, after all.

 

Here is a poopy for the road to bind you over, from Doc Ron Klain, this time on gas prices as opposed to just gaslighting for Buzzard Brains.

“Energy prices are starting to come down. More work to be done, but they are moving in the right direction.”

Sustainability Meets Its Match

Don’t you worry; the eviro-green people are busy thinking of new ways to use our bountiful resources in ever-sustainable ways. Out of the box.

Take this novel idea: someone took salmon sperm and mixed it with vegetable oil to create a gel-like substance that can be formed into all kinds of things.

It then hardens to become like a plastic. So they fancy all kinds of things it could be made into. One of the first items they created with it was a cup. Neat, uh?

They said that, unlike plastic, one bonus was its ability to be recycled since it is water-soluble. So adding water will turn it right back into gel. So much for the cup, eh?

But don’t worry because they go on to expound that for this reason it would have to be used on things that need to be kept dry like in electronic equipment or packaging. Okay.

Yeah, I bet some heads will explode over at the UL – Underwriters Laboratory. They are going to just love this great idea. But read it in Euronews Green.

Just search: ‘Sperm used to create eco-friendly alternative to plastic.’ — How many articles could there be matching that criteria?

I’m sure people can think of all kinds of creative uses for this innovative substance.

Maybe we could make shower chairs for the elderly with it? Sky is the limit. Okay, boats are  probably out. I wonder how those salmon feel about this definition of sustainability?

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.

US Congress Condemned Satire: Manufactured Outrage

News Alert: Satire is censured in the House but direct threats on Americans, from their government, can continue unabated.

Not to worry, people, on this historic day your beloved Congress – led by aggrieved Democrat ideologues — voted to sanctimoniously censure satire from a sitting Congressman.  He was also stripped from two committees.

You have been saved and spared all the shame of Rep Paul Gosar.

Ticket-tape parade surely to follow. And they did it by utilizing their proxy-voting process — aka Nancy’s rule — which allows members of Congress not  to even show up in Congress to vote their venom. They can phone it in.

Hatred and violence is on the docket to condemn, with as nasty a brush as Democrats could muster.  We must stop this symbolic violence in society. No place for it to fester in Congress. (shout out to condemning Rep Joe Wilson for yelling lie during a SOTUS – same condemnation deserved)

Nope, it belongs on a ball field where Republicans were corralled so their shooter could target them one by one, like fish in a bowl. The Democrat activist got off as many rounds as he could before security took him down. His objective was killing them all — particularly ones on his pocket list.

Or perhaps save the worst violence for when members are mowing their own lawn to be attacked by a crazed Democrat, leaving him permanently injured. That’s the way the game is played. No satire involved.

Then the Democrats can cheer as reports flow about another injured Republican wounded while unscrupulously serving in Congress. It doesn’t really matter where Republicans are attacked just as long as they are.

 

While on the same day as their historic and sanctimonious vote, another rapper called Young Dolf was gunned down walking into a cookie store in Memphis. Any drama symbolism the event had was overshadowed by the very real death of a 36-year old rapper. BLM took a rain check on that.

But the outrage for that, or for the riots and violence last year to further the Democrats’ objectives, is completely omitted from memory. Silence is the Democrats’ deadly weapon of choice. See no evil, speak no evil. It was over a billion in damages but so what? It stirs the passion for cop killings to follow – a necessary ingredient. It further fueled the abolish cops theme which morphed into defunding police across the country.

Yes, Democrats needed to get behind the BLM and donate to bail funds to secure rioters’ and looters’ freedom in 2020. Politics trumps insurrection.

Democrats in Congress have a strange way of picking good duys and bad guys. Like their silence and denial when parents of school children are labeled domestic terrorists. It comes with the political  territory. When they are targeted by the DOJ all the better, because that is what the InJustice Department is there for —  to retaliate against Democrats’ political enemies.

But real violence and threats against the Homeland are ignored and denied as some wild “conspiracy theories” – cooked up by devious patriots trying to protect America. How dare they?

So millions of illegals storm the border but Democrats’ only response is to supply the logistics necessary to get them where they want to go. Busloads of invaders circumventing ‘rule of law’ are given priority over law-abiding citizens and Americans. Special rights are awarded illegal aliens to trump Americans’ genuine concerns for security. Thankfully so.

But don’t you worry your crazy head, be comforted that on this day Congress took a tough stand censuring satire by a vote in the House. They are rising to the challenge of manufactured outrage, threat numero uno.

Memes are out and violence is in, to Democrats.

Back To The Russia Hoax And Dupes

A few people are being indicted in the Durham investigation. They are not government agents and are being generically charged for lying to feds. So that must mean they are just going after the liars not the feds who handled the hoax. That’s the running narrative.

Former prosecutor Andrew McCarthy is pushing this reasoning saying don’t get your hopes up because he is only targeting liars. It doesn’t mean crimes or government officials are complicit. Well this narrative has some flaws. Not that I have a much confidence in Durham’s positive outcome. McCarthy calls it “infuriating but not criminal.” Whether he is just playing down the propects on Durham’s investigation or not, it raises questions.

So then the narrative goes that the feds were duped. It wasn’t really their fault. They didn’t create it. They were fooled. Some say it was just “dirty campaign tricks” but not like there are criminal statutes for that and criminal conduct is another matter. Just walk through it with me.

Let’s remember this innocuous, “dirty campaign trick” (scheme) was rolled into a Special Counsel investigation at over 32 million tax dollars. Feds got duped? How does that happen organically without complicit willful intent? It also eventually got by that Special Counsel, too? Plus it wrecked dozens of lives and careers en route. How’s that just happen?

Now some clever Leftist may come along — not here — to suggest all the investigating and Special Counsel actions by itself demonstrates cause and reason it needed to happen. Justified on that alone.

The investigation justifies itself.

There you have it, the ludicrous defense of the investigation hoax in a nutshell. Use the fact they concocted an elaborate, corrupt investigation (scheme) to justify the Russian Hoax investigation. Use the investigation to substantiate itself. We did it; therefore it must have had to be done.

But the idea doesn’t stop there, because it can’t and was not the objective.

So we are to somehow believe Feds can discern lies from any Joe America — a serious offense for any citizen — but just cannot discern a lie when it comes to campaign hacks or nefarious foreign sources or intelligence operatives with glaringly obvious motives? (even if it was a counter-intelligence investigation.) And it is done in a national presidential election?

Just swallow all that. A counter-intell investigation requires sign off.

So then they (government/intelligence apparatus) enthusiastically uses those lies as a basis for a counter-intelligence investigation, and get dubious warrants, to ambitiously bring in a Special Counsel investigation (h/t to James Comey) of a then sitting president and National Security advisor of the United States.

Yeah, what are the odds on that happening without any willful intent to harpoon the new/incoming administration? Vegas anyone? Without the feds, government and their malicious conduct none of this happens. Now what are the odds this happens organically on the level?

But wait for it. Then they use — in press and media to defend their activities — the investigation itself to justify their investigation. Long shot?

But one more thing, we now know Dir. Brennan notified Justice Dep and even briefed Obama in August 2016 that Hillary’s campaign was running a dirty operation to accuse Trump of working with Russians. (a frame job)

Now if they are going to charge a few for lying and call it a day, it does not stand any test of basic credibility. So we cannot say laws were broken and crimes were committed in all of that? What of election law?

If that doesn’t rise to the level of some major, indictable crimes then get ready for the next viscous election. It’ll be a doozy! (I promise)

Truth MIA: The Bitter-Enders Return

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Russia Hoax’s Fatal Encounter With Reality

Welcome back to reality, people, or those who are hearing about it due to its vast censorship from major media. But in the event you do, it is like reality has finally made a comeback —  successful or not. — from planet Treason.

But that hopeful end goal may require some divine assistance.

Anyway, here is Australia’s Sky News solo coverage of it, which itself may yet be deleted by self-anointed cyber-police seeking to defeat reality.

Well, sit back and enjoy the homage while it lasts, courtesy of foreign coverage.

The damning “story of the century,” which in reality was only a fictional tale.

Or as we are fond of saying in the US:

Let’s Go Brandon!

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.

Wacky Media Theorizing

Time for some wacky media theory talk. 25 years ago Fox kicked off a news network that broke the mold of the news media business model. Against all the odds it worked.

Okay, it was an achievement and people liked it. The popularity even caused a hate from the left, which was weird because you would think liberals would like more news instead of less. It seemed to fire up their hate machine on all cylinders. Leftists couldn’t really hate on legacy media because they shared the same political views.

Now hate for Fox is standard fair.

But whenever you get something new, even if it is an offshoot of something else, sooner or later it too gets dated.

Then, after Fox News proved there could be viable alternatives, it led to others like OAN and Newsmax. Now there are a bunch of them. Oh, you could say they aren’t really mainstream yet. But Fox is because it now leads in ratings. Fox proved you could also succeed in being an alternative network – or beat them at their own game.

Now that that is done, what is new on the horizon? I already mentioned the other alternate news networks. They are gaining fast. And meanwhile less and less people really believe what mainstream legacy media is telling us. It’s a caricature.

What is the future? Well we have to look at what happened and say that eventually someone will come along to replace and further what Fox has done, it’s only natural. What would it be is yet unknown. But we do know people tire of things. After 25 years, they aren’t new anymore. But people will flock to try something new if given the chance.

We’ve seen this pattern in social media, too. Who remembers MySpace? It was all the rage when Obama first ran. Young people probably don’t even know about it, but it was young people then who drove the platform. They know Facebook though. Interesting how the negativity for Facebook has turned into a hatefest. Do you think they survive it?

Mark Zuckerberg has now given us the answer. Change the name. But the fascinating thing under the hood of public opinion is that the Facebook hate is across the spectrum now. It doesn’t matter if they are on the far left or right, or in the middle, everyone agrees on a disdain for Facebook. They certainly don’t trust it either.

So Zuckerberg seems to have a challenge, especially after trying to monopolize so many other social media platforms. His own mother ship brand is in the toilet. No one is more responsible for it than Mark Zuckerberg. Out with the old, in with the new. That time always comes, eventually. At some point, interest fades and/or something else replaces it. Facebook now just wants to remain relevant.

This presents sort of a pattern for the rest of media.

Legacy media is dug in though. There was a time when CNN was the new thing in the 90’s. It rode a popular wave for a while but the wheels came off and it crashed as a leading source. It is no more than an organ for the Democrat machine, credibility is shot. It had its time in the day though. They haven’t decided on changes there yet. But it cannot stand, as people don’t trust them.

No one trusts Facebook either but they didn’t have to. It was only a platform for people to use. Their paradigm has issues now and people refuse to participate in it. They aren’t spending time on it.

I’m saying the same thing will probably, inevitably, happen in the news business too. But it will have to be a different model than we see to be well received. We’re all jaded now; we’ve seen how it works, the good and the bad. We’ve seen where it leads. So it also becomes harder to build a new model with any integrity while there is so much venomous dislike for the old model.

One natural resource we still have in America is creativity. When you have something that people don’t like, there is a hunger for something different. Someone somewhere will find out what that is. It might take several attempts but something comes in the end.

Mark Zuckerberg had to know that day would come when it would be irrelevant, didn’t he? He should have. And he should have planned accordingly. All he managed to do is gobble up anything out there which might be a threat to his monopolistic existence. But Facebook was the business model for all else he hoarded.

That business model now has serious issues. It’s been undermined by people’s lack of trust in it. You can’t keep feeding people poison after they discovered it is poison. That demands deception. Heaping on more new poison is not the answer.

Next up, the jury is still deliberating on Twitter. Jack Dorsey may be despised, for a lot of reasons, but the hate has not spread to both ends of the spectrum yet. So far it is mostly from the right. The left still sees it as politically useful – and they let you know it. In fact, they swarm it like killer bees. It’s a vehicle for cancel culture. It’s useful to attack their political opponents. It’s a preferred platform for leftist hatred.

But that too has its shelf life. Whatever the next thing is, liberals will flock to it like wild boars, they always do. That also makes it harder to start up anything new when the liberals come in scorched earth to destroy anything in their way. That is another pattern we’ve seen over and over again over years. They also don’t develop new; they just want to destroy the old. They wait for others to start it and pounce.

Who knows what the next thing will be or what the future will be? But we do know the sequence of events. The left wants to control it, whatever it is. They want to control us as well as our ability to organize or participate. We can count on those factors.

Meanwhile, Trump announced a collaborative media project to create a new platform. Will it succeed? It will have the name brand and recognition to kick it off – something others only dream of. The left has helped by banning Trump on other media platforms. It created a need for them to go elsewhere. The left never realized it was us who created the attraction for social media platforms. Without that it was only homogenized liberal waste water – an elitist echo chamber, another organ of the Democrat machine.

Whatever is new lies ahead, But what is old will not be forgotten, nor are the lessons learned.

Zuckerberg is already gleaning for what is new that he can use to rehabilitate “Facebook”. He blew it on the new name right out of the gate, Meta. (logo is even worse) No one on the spectrum likes it. Most think it is sounds stupid. He managed to unify hatred of himself, something people would have thought hard to do.

I know, maybe he can use Joey to gain interest in his platform? Maybe he can use has-beens like Obama to help sell his new image? He can say, “hey, we are re-imagining Facebook.” That ought to work. Notice a pattern?

Senator Cotton Grills AG Garland

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

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

Again, political duty calls.

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

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

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.
