Changing Times

There is a whole series of things that don’t add up, or make sense, in the way they used to.

We are now told by Democrats that the schools are not safe for our children.
Further, they tell us parents should refuse to send them to protect them.

In a local exercise in one town, the kids created a mural. Part of the design process in developing it asked each child to name one thing they hoped for. A fourth-grader said safety and security. Another older kid explained he hoped for a safer community, so they would not be afraid to walk the streets and just feel secure. And those two kids happened to be black. See any themes there?

That security could take some policing. But look at the defunding-abolishing police plans. How does that help? Wait a minute, police do not make the community unsafe. Yet we need to do away with them. How will that make us more safe and secure?

In fact, if safety and security are on the minds of kids, let’s also take cops or security guards out of the schools. That should make kids feel better and safer.

Schools are too unsafe and risky. But joining thousands of unknown, random protestors in the streets is encouraged. Peaceful protest is lighting buildings on fire; going to church threatens the community. Rioting is exempt from rules — for the good of the country.

Splitting up people walking on a beach is necessary, while marching shoulder to shoulder in the streets with protestors is protected and sanctified.

It used to be people stood at attention for the national anthem. But kneeling is now protocol. The flag and anthem used to be a symbol of pride, honor and respect — not the object of disdain. The flag is triggering. Kneeling at the flag or anthem used to be a form of protest, but today that is the symbol of conformity. Standing at attention is now protest.

Demand the economy be shutdown and remain closed, then complain about the unemployment rate and economy. How’s that make any sense?

You cannot risk going out to vote… but get out there and protest.

Let’s not forget protecting vulnerable nursing homes by forcing COVID-19 into them. That protects thousands of lives. Then blame nursing homes who were forced to take them.

In other news, Beijing Biden is all about creating jobs by destroying them in mass. That is called a progressive economic plan.

Cancel Culted: Real Life

I heard the news that Mike Adams has died. He was a criminology and sociology professor at University of North Carolina – Wilmington, and a regular writer of columns on TownHall.com. Apparently it was a suicide.

I did not know Mr. Adams but I almost felt like it because of reading his personalized columns, which always brought a strong sense of right and wrong, civility and a little Adams humor mixed in. Plus he had the flair for activism.

But often they were true-life stories, on many of his encounters with the modern Left. Being a professor and his activism naturally provided a wealth of resource material for them. He was in their world – but not of their world. And a Christian at heart.

Anyway, as I heard this news it seemed like such a loss. If it is one thing Mike Adams had to offer was his intellect and wisdom on controversial and moral issues — such as pro-life and Christianity. And a knack for explaining them.

Now with that, I am posting an old 2005 column that can be found on TownHall. Ironically, those same columns often caused him so much ire from the campus establishment. Yet he refused to let that shut him up. He actually seemed to thrive on it, which likely drove them crazy in their ivory towers. Its written at one of those times he was under attack.

So here it is in full, followed by a special dessert:

Life and how to live it

Mike Adams  | Posted: Jul 26, 2005

Over the weekend, I received several emails from readers warning me that I might lose my job over the article I wrote criticizing my university’s new harassment policy. Readers who sometimes suggest that I should learn to hold my tongue fail to understand my simple philosophy of life. It is an uncompromising philosophy that guarantees both peace of mind and success in any important endeavor. It can be roughly summarized as follows:

1. If you want to be happy and successful, you must immediately disabuse yourself of the notion that there is no such thing as good and evil.

If, for some reason, this is difficult for you to do, take the time to visit the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. If that still does not convince you, take the time to visit Auschwitz.

2. You must also immediately disabuse yourself of the notion that good and evil are simply relative terms. There are moral absolutes and they have absolutely nothing to do with your personal feelings and perceptions.

It should be noted that people who claim to believe in moral relativism are just lying in order to make themselves appear to be morally superior to others. Their actual belief in moral absolutism is revealed when, at some point, they openly proclaim that there are no absolutes. If everything is relative, the philosophy of moral relativism can’t be absolutely true.

3. Take some time every day to fine-tune your understanding of the difference between right and wrong.

Recently, a good friend of mine lost his mother to cancer. He later made a casual suggestion about the need for some sort of handbook, which could be used to sort out the difficult problems and answer the difficult questions one encounters in life.

Fortunately, such a handbook exists. It is called the Holy Bible.

No one can call himself educated if he has not read the Bible at least once. Even after several readings of the Bible some things will remain unclear. Some questions will remain unanswered. Nonetheless, upon every reading of the Bible, greater wisdom is gained. After all, life is a journey. It is not a destination.

By the same token, one should never go to a psychologist or any other counselor who is a self-proclaimed atheist or agnostic. I cannot think of a single important principle the field of psychology has established that wasn’t already established in the Sermon on the Mount.

4. Life will present you with plenty of encounters with good and evil. Just as you should never pass up an opportunity to promote good, you should never pass up an opportunity to combat evil.

One of my favorite verses of the Bible is James 4:17. It states that “Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.” That verse reminds us that we don’t have to actually do something to be morally culpable. In other words, there is such a thing as a sin of omission.

It can often be tough to step up and combat evil when one may be risking, for example, one’s job. We humans are so weak and frail that it is often tough to stand up for what is right even when the consequences are merely ostracism or momentary ridicule. In those times, the following verse (Hebrews 13:5) helps: “For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”” Remember when you read that verse that, quite literally, nothing else in life matters.

In the past, I have been faced with some risky decisions that involved the prospect of taking on campus radicals; some have been communists, some have been feminists, all have been, in some way, morally decadent. But some of these morally bankrupt individuals also happened to have some degree of power over me and over my economic livelihood.

When, in the past, I have contemplated the prospect of cowering away from these situations, I have sometimes found strength by thinking about some old war veterans; some in my family, some friends, who risked or even gave their lives to preserve our nation and our freedom.

The next time you find yourself tempted to cower from something you know you should do, just imagine a roomful of old war veterans. Get in a quiet, dark room. Close your eyes, concentrate on their faces. Then just imagine walking up to one of them to have a face-to-face talk about what you are cowering from and why.

Once, I imagined myself walking up to my grandfather who was hit with grenade shrapnel in World War I and saying something like this:: “Thanks for serving to protect my First Amendment Rights. I’ve been meaning to stand up to some campus feminists who are violating the constitutional rights of some students on campus. But, frankly, I’m afraid of feminists and what they might say about me.”

You might want to end this mental exercise before you picture one of those veterans punching you in the nose.

Just remember that Jesus didn’t die on the cross for you to run from what is right. And war heroes didn’t die on the battlefield for you to cower away while this country is destroyed.

5. Standing up against that which is wrong invariably means that you will have to take on a lot of angry people. If you cannot do it with a sense of humor, you are less likely to prevail.

Without question, liberals are the angriest people in America these days. If you respond to them with anger, you will allow them to conceal this fact while playing upon stereotypes of conservatives that are no longer accurate. In addition, you will not be able to influence people in the middle.

Now, you know a little more about my simple philosophy of life. In my next column, I plan to answer Dr. Phil’s favorite question: “How?s that working for you?”
To be continued. …”

More irony is that he was engaged in a battle with the NC Governor over shutdown. And yet another with the NCUW over words in some tweets. The cancel culture mob was after him. He was going to retire August 1.

He subsequently wrote many many more parts of ‘Life and how we live it.’ I think it was up to 8 last December. Always apropos. RIP Mike Adams.

Now for a sense of what effect Mike had, here is an older clip of a Rush Limbaugh Show using one of his letters for a backdrop. Enjoy the truth and humor. (2013)

USA, we have a problem

Let’s break all this violence, protesting, rioting down to the least common denominator.
It is so basic even a grade-school kid can understand it

1) These mayors, governors and public officials got elected.
2) Then they swore an oath.
3) Now, either they can do the job or they can’t. Which is it?

If they cannot or will not do the job, then there is a big problem. The rioters and Antifa are now only part of this whole mess. The solution to violence is not defund or abolish police.

But it appears in some cases, despite the public outcriy and destruction, going on for months on end, that some of these elected officials cannot even be forced to do their jobs.

Now who is going to do his or her job?

It does not and cannot get any simpler than that.

Nightmare On Pennsylvania Ave

Obama and Biden were responsible for the most egregious abuse of power in US history. Just start there. What a way to be memorialized in history for future generations.

I think we have been looking at this sort of backwards. We think of all the henchmen, or who carried what out, as the bad guys for what they did. But they were only the facilitators. Sure, they were all in on it though the henchmen are the ones who did it. But the orders as well as hatched plans had come from the top.

Obama and Biden did what they did and conducted a spying operation against Trump because they didn’t like who got elected president. But that doesn’t go back far enough because it started while Trump was running for president.

So to unfold this you go to where what Hillary did meshed with what Obama did. That intersection would be the crucial point. But Obama was heavily involved in Hillary’s campaign, as if it were his own re-election campaign.

Hillary is the one who set the law firm in place between her and Fusion GPS to create the dossier, which got back fed into the FBI and intelligence. But it appears that the FBI already had a surveillance operation against the Trump campaign. Both sides appeared to have been working against Trump, but the dossier certainly combined the two if they were not already aligned. I don’t think there was any doubt that Obama/Biden and Hillary were working together all along.

When people try to keep an open mind is when they get into all kinds of trouble. They try to decouple what the parties were doing when it was in concert. By accident? Hardly, the facts keep bringing it back to a unified effort. And if they were not operating cohesively at first, they certainly wanted to be. FBI sealed that.

Team Hillary was desperately waving a flag saying: ‘look here, investigate this.’ And then they went to lengths to create official links within the FBI to Hillary’s campaign. Maybe there is a question on exactly what date they were formally working together, but they functioned as one from the beginning. Both parties working toward the same goals. You could say parallel tracks.

Ah, the Obama – Biden administration wanted to use and offload the problem with Russia meddling right into Trump’s lap. He was a patsy to scapegoat the Russian problem on.

Remember that Russian meddling had been a problem since 2014, long before Trump. Any sitting president would have been aware of it, as Obama was. What to do? He stalled on any action. Then Trump became a convenient purpose to use the Russian problem for. Hence, create the narrative.

But then Hillary was onboard with the same mission. Was that by coincidence? Didn’t they share those same concerns and ideas? One would expect they must have.

Oh but then there was the flowering FBI investigation over Hillary that would wilt away, in July, at FBI’s behest. Not that they were really seriously investigating her/it anyway. The purpose of that case was to go through the motions to clear her of wrong doing. So she could use it to show she was given a clean bill of health.

Past was intertwined with the future. There was Obama’s legacy and Hillary’s future presidency that would cover all of the dirty, dark areas of his tenure. While she would go on to use government for her own personal political gain, in keeping with the pattern.

Trump was an inconvenient interruption in more ways than he could even imagine. And the people could surely not be given the truth about any of what went on. That would be seen as failure from all sides of the cabal. Hillary’s legacy would be to cover his and hers. Both wanted nothing but glowing adoration for generations to come, even while turning the system inside out. (but it would all be for a good purpose – theirs)

Dems Want A Doormat, Not A President

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Malicious Intent Of Radicals

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Closing argument.

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

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

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

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

China, You’re No Good

Here are the lyrics to my new song. I hope you like it.

China, you’re no good
you’re no good
you’re no good
you’re no good
China, you’re no good.

Hong Kong is gone
But won’t be forgotten

What is the single word that can end Joe Biden’s campaign,
and cancel his political career? China.

But how can we save ourselves from China, though,
If we cannot save ourselves from our own?

China is just no damn good.

Biden’s Bolshevik Plans

Here’s a short review of Democrats’ plans, I have a direct analogy for anyone listening.

Suppose I want to build a huge project. Now I would not hire a union(s) to design the building. Of course I’ll hire a designer or an architect for that. Likewise, the unions would not have an architect run their unions.

But this roll reversal is exactly what Biden and union organizers have up their sleeves. The iron workers don’t design the bridges. Steel workers don’t design cars. The teachers’ unions do not design our public schools or write the curriculum. Let’s be real about it.

First of all, unions are not accountable to the public, nor are they elected to public office. And they do not want to be. Stop pretending.

What kind of hair-brained idiots are these people?

What kind of economy, country are they trying to create?

The Old Country

A long, long time ago, as rumor has it, there was a great country between the Pacific and Atlantic called the United States of America. A proud country in good and bad times.

It was fiercely independent. Many thought there was something about her that rose above other countries. Some thought that more myth and legend but many believed it. Was it more perception of the residents than reality? We aren’t sure though that can be studied.

And indeed this country became a great force among other countries. She tried to help the others in their times of need. She sailed around the world ending 2 world wars and batting down various other conflicts. Real peace eluded her for years.

Her men and women were of strong stock working to build a strong country. And strong it was. They had a certain determination. They had mostly good intentions among them, even in desperate times. In fact, in the worst of times they seemed to rise above petty to pull their resources to solve any crisis. There was a “we are one” mentality.

She, America, was the go to source for markets around the world. She was the ultimate trading partner. When others in the world bought her goods, which carried a great reputation, people were glad to buy them. And it bought plenty from others. The label “Made in USA” meant something throughout the world.

She was a place people around the globe flocked to or aspired to go. There was no other place like it. One of its great presidents referred to America as a “shining city on a hill.” Debates often went back and forth over extending or retracting her interests verses isolationism. Those ideas are still out there in books for consumption. But they sure were passionate about their ideas. They valued their ideas almost as much as the country.

Indeed, they sort of had a reverence for the past though it was not perfect. Yet because they worked through those imperfections that made her even better. And it was hard work. They had a great Civil War in the 1800’s. They united afterward as even a better country, despite differing opinions. They had high appreciation for its relatively short history as a nation.

Through thick and thin there was no better place to be.

The consensus always was instinctively to resist foreign entanglements, but as decades went on resistance grew weaker. They did entangle the country in far regions around the world. It was rationalized as the better choice. Still, they were leery of Global powers of consolidation that opposed their spirit of individualism and freedom.

One of its later presidents called those powers a New World Order.

In time, even that weaker resistance softened. Until it got to a point where some of its leaders were so enamored by this Globalism that they began doing things and scheming to get deeper involved in Globalism. The theory went that enough actions would be irreversible and that, once done, people would grow accustomed making it virtually impossible to undo. Each layer of Globalist policies added more bonds on the people. Even fierce dissenters would not be capable of mustering the resolve to undo it all. So that is the way it went.

Then She had many culture battles domestically, which strained the nation’s unity. It was called a culture war. They bickered back and forth about these cultural issues. Some saw these as bigger than the country itself, while others ignored them entirely. The date always seemed significant. They would say things like, “ it’s the 1970’s.” Or insert any other year up until the 2-M’s. The year was used as a symbol for modernity itself. Similarly, they mocked the past with euphemisms like “ancient” or “dark ages.” In that way, they thought of themselves currently as better, more knowledgeable and improving as time went on. New became old and the cycle continued. Everything in the past was perceived as “old.”

It was almost as if they could not get enough of new, anything new. For some people, change could not seem to happen fast enough. There were those who sat around trying to think up the next new thing that would catch the public’s appetite for change. They were not Nostradamus figures, but commoners trying to ride the fast-moving wave of modernity. Usually, efforts were in vaine. Fads and trends were moving fast enough without that intentional help. There was an education reformer back in the late 1800’s who said “change, if done correctly, can hardly be noticed.” However, the objective of this change was not to be unnoticed but to be obvious to everyone. The more shocking or outrageous the better. In fact that was the purpose.. They wanted change to be highly visible and unavoidable.

Well, you can probably see where all this is headed but the country enjoyed some very good years. It was blessed for many years. That is until this need for change and the will of the people were so compromised that the inevitable was certainly inevitable for them. By then, there was a margin of people who weren’t interested in keeping the country as it had been, but looking for a severely different state. They had no pride in what was or is, only in how far they could jettison it. Therein was the problem. Their preference was radical change.

Well, it should have been clear in tell tale signs over years. Sometimes people openly state even their worst intentions. During later elections, campaigns were filled with words about change. One new term grew in popularity, transformation. Most people didn’t know what it meant, at least as defined by those soldiers of change using it.

Then came another term, re-imagine. They claimed they wanted to re-imagine government, re-imagine the economic system. Re-imagine everything. The irony is that with all this re-imaging, they could not have imagined a better country than they had. But their toxic, creative imaginations could not be quenched and leave the once-great country in place.

I see it is getting late, so maybe we’ll read more about this Old Glory another time. It is an interesting story anyway. Sort of mysterious why there are not more books about it?

Cancelled Then Or Now?

One pf the most famous post-founding speeches, delivered on a battlefield by Abraham Lincoln, declared the world will not long remember “what we say here,” but it “can never forget what they did here.”

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”Gettysburg Address, 1863.

Wait a minute there, are you telling me that was all a big lie and, at least until recently contested by Black Lives Mater anyway, is still a lie?

Again, I ask, I just wonder when and at what cause would the Left be proud of America? It’s a really simple question. What would it take, since they are not currently proud of America?

Price or cost of that anyone?

Lincoln went on to highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

A new birth of freedom? But Leftists have criticized even the motivation for our country. Why would they believe Lincoln? That’s just more rhetoric propaganda to them.

How much different that speech would have been if it were a concession speech on a Confederate victory: “Sorry, boys, it was all in vain but I can assure you we tried.” But no, Lincoln referred to the birth of the country and this “new birth” – as a further consecration of that original dedication and purpose.

Now then, about this current state of our cultural affairs
.

Oh, Lincoln waited for Black Lives Matter to come along to call him out by correcting it all. He knew they would. Of course Lincoln was wrong and just did not do it the right way. The poor soldiers who fought the war, then, were highly misguided of the entire purpose.

So what do we have some 150 years later? The BLM movement. It has attracted a crowd of attention. People have allied with it and their perception. Just call them “the minders”.

Now what I see on the streets is a whole lot of people who signed on to BLM and have made a choice for which there is no recovery. Without hesitation, they’ve all gone lockstep with something that many probably don’t even understand. Mob rule is not pretty. They would rather have that than even democracy.

They have lent themselves to a revolution to rip this country apart. And they are about to reap the fruits of it. On one hand, the BLM dismisses what was done in the Civil War, while calling forth their own counter-revolution to undo the first revolution. Without giving much thought to the consequences of their action. On the other hand, they misinterpret the original conception of the country.

But Lincoln should have clarified that, to anyone hearing or reading it, both the intent of this nation and the civil war itself. One would think.

“Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war.”

What he admitted there is that this was a test for the survival of that consecration. It was bloody. Now 150 years later, Leftists and the BLM are ripping away at it, asking if we can endure their mobocracy of disdain for it? Or will it too be cancelled in the end?

But then I think Lincoln knew something about the Cancel Culture.

Enemy Within, Game On

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

William Davis | July o7, 2020  Daily Caller

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Washington Examiner

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

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

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

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

Next-Best Thing Nation

Have we become a nation of second-best or even third-best? I mean that in the wider literal sense. Let me show you how that could be.

But maybe much of it goes back to branding and marketing terminology? Brands are always important to proprietary companies. It is great for a company to say it is the only, best or number one in an area. It leaves others to measure up to the brand’s expertise. And often competitors cannot quite get there. They may come close. Sometimes there is no substitute and that matters. They call it the secret sauce for a reason, it is secret.

So diehard competitors look for ways to entice or seduce the consumer. Convenient packaging, pricing, whatever would help lure the consumer to their alternative. We see knockoffs of every major product. But consumers can be fickle and sometimes loyal to brands. That is until something happens to destroy that loyalty and credibility.

However, those would be things alternative competitors are not too worried about. Brand loyalty is a problem to them, not something coveted. Sometimes competitors can excel at what they do because, after all, they are merely trying to undermine or detract from the real branded product. A competitor’s mission is different than the brand master’s. And competitors can become good at chipping away at that brand loyalty. Stay with me.

A nation may work the same way. It can have and affect it’s own brand by whatever it does. A country is not always unique and must try to use its positives to its advantage. It may also have competitors trying to undermine a nation’s loyalty, thereby giving a challenger an edge. You can see the glaring similarities.

Though one goal is to eventually get the consumer to say “what difference does it make anyway which brand I choose, if both are about same thing?” Then it is up to brand masters to ask if it really is the same thing? Or to point out the difference.

The problem with an analogy is when you take it too far. No need to do that for this purpose. Now let’s look at the country’s side of the analogy.

We have a country with a great brand from the beginning, being what none of its competitors could be. Yet chipping away the loyalty works the same way. At some point, you have to defend your superior brand, if you really believe in it. From an opponent’s perspective, anything they can do to undermine a country’s belief in itself is critical to their objective. That weakens a nation’s defense. Now apply that opponents’ strategy on a nonstop basis and you have a problem. Eventually, dissent can rise from within.

In marketing terms, this is where the consumer abandons a name brand and starts to look for alternatives. Any brand loyalty is defeated.

The problem then is when the consumer no longer trusts the brand or believes there is a difference between others. Or if the consumer no longer cares one wit about a brand’s superiority. It is similar to a country losing its uniqueness. The worst thing that can happen to some major companies is losing its brand in any way. A country has the same threat. When it stops being its unique self, there is no difference between its opponents. Though there are bigger consequences when a country goes downhill.

I said all that to ask if, in this country, our brand is being weakened to the point many don’t care anymore about its superiority — much less in defending our brand? We hope not but signs are already there and visible to even the dumbest enemy. When we lose as a country is when we start to consider ourselves second best or third-best. If we are not willing to uphold that superiority and defend it, then we are resigning to second-best status. All it can take is turning our will from brand superiority into being a next-best country. At that point it becomes a self-fulfilled prophecy.

Now factor into this analogy equation that we are being told our system needs changing. We should be more like our second and third-best competitors. We need an overhaul. The disenchanted within try to supplant another system in place of the original. Sure, everyone knows they are doing it. But what does it take to switch people over to the new brand? Well, it is already in the works, too. Cleverly they are bribing people like consumers with enticements, and promises. They have already undermined the brand. So what could brand masters do; how could they compete with that sales pitch?

In reality, those are just pipe dreams anyway because the competitors can’t deliver on them. But they don’t have to worry about that and don’t have to deliver, only get you to switch. Because once you do, the gate closes behind you and you cannot return to the superior brand even if you wanted. They have made that impossible, or soon will.

So the people accepted the next-best-thing country and have no options. It worked the same way with Obamacare. You find out you are screwed or don’t like the alternative and want to undo it, only to find out you can’t. Throw in a Supreme Snob saying “not so fast.” It becomes a done deal and hard to return to normal because normal has changed. Then you start to question if there ever was a normal before, or was that an illusion?

It’s very seductive but instead of leading you down the road of more options, it leads to less options as it goes. Next, you have lost your ability to choose at all. Yet it was all done and framed as a choice from the onset. Even dubbed a great choice. Sorry, no return policy.

So then how do you like your new next-best thing of a nation? Besides, it is really hard to get passionate about defending that second-best country, especially when it really isn’t even the next best thing. Sometimes brand really matters.

Stealing America

Wake uo America, people are trying to steal your country out from under your feet. It requires brutal warning. But I don’t know if we’re all getting the message?

So while you are sitting on your couch, planning your next barbecue or doing repairs around the house, these people are out on the streets physically doing their best to steal this country. Never mind what plans they have for it. They are holding parts of it hostage against your will, using radical means or any means necessary. If they cannot pry it from its mooring they will bring it down around you. Then probably blame you for it,too.

But they are already part way there.

I can honestly admit I am not a certified source or expert on the subjects. I don’t claim to be. But I have closely followed what the Left has been doing for about 25 years, seeing myself the lies, the parsing, the bullshit denials they traffic in.

This is an insurgency, a seditious movement hell bent on taking the country over. I know, alarmists have said that for years. Yada yada yada. Don’t underestimate it based on those repetitious cries over decades. Some of those alsrmists had good intentions, though somewhat premature. They were not pushing conspiracy theories.

Now is for real. The enemy has their teeth sunk in to such an extent that it is bound to leave extensive permanent damage. Of course that is not only me but plenty of people saying it. However, I understand people are jaded and rhetoric-weary.

I developed a bias, too. I see people who are not alarmed about it because they’ve seen some unrest before, like many politicians, and just think protests and chaos will run their course in time. Many feel it all fades off.

But I got news for them, this is not all fading away any time soon, maybe never. They’ve gotten this far and they aren’t going to let go now. They are entrenched and see foundation weakness or cracks – even if we choose not to see them.

Once again, I’ll provide a couple separate examples — old and present, both true.

A few years ago a career police officer in the greater Seattle area wrote a column. He was also a lifelong Christian and very active member in the same local church for years. He brought his family up there. But he felt change getting worse in the community.

The hatred against cops had gotten so bad, plus the church was standing up with radicals, that he had to make a tough decision. First he took his concerns to the church leaders. It fell on deaf ears. So he had no choice but to resign from committees and remove his family from the church. It was no longer safe for him or his family. It hurt deeply. Now what we see with hatred of cops is nothing new. It has only gotten worse.

The second is on the east cost, last week. A police department decided to have a small, local support rally for officers and the department in view of the stressful times in a pandemic. It could also build community ties while having this “back the blue” type event.

BLM heard and immediately organized a large rally putting out the word for a protest. So police didn’t want any trouble and decided to cancel their event. But BLM showed up anyway and were mad because the police cancelled their event. BLM’s leader gave a list of grievances including canceling for fear of violence. They were offended demanding an apology and wanted police to show support for Black Lives Matters. Then sent it to City Hall. They demanded a response and statement of agreement with BLM.

There is no choice except agreeing with BLM. They demand you support them. If you don’t, they will attack anyone to force that pledge of support. This is devious and dangerous. The message is no one is allowed to even voice support for police. (local or otherwise) You get attacked for supporting the community structure.

We know the locally elected leaders don’t help any. In fact, they often cave to BLM which encourages more hostage taking. It empowers them.

One more, if you need a third. A mainline evangelical church has already sent out a few newsletters vowing their unity, support and solidarity with the BLM movement – aka standing up for equality against systemic racism. A lot of buzz words there, no?

That brings it full circle. Years back with the cop near Seattle, people said that is the radical Northwest. Some suggested he move his family, as it was too politically radical. But I said it was not just there. Some didn’t believe that. What was normal there is now becoming common everywhere. It didn’t take long. Look which side the momentum is on.

I am still discouraged by a lack of public concern about it. People see it more as a passing fad that will eventually fade. (like the occupy movement did?) But old Leftists never fade away, they just regroup and come back another day.

Now I am wondering if people are finally getting it? Do they take it seriously? Are they prepared to choose which side they are on? Because we already see others throwing in with the radicals like BLM, even if they don’t know what they are doing.

Me, I cannot ever side with cultural Marxism or pledge to support that. I don’t believe it is a Godly or just cause either. Does anyone think supporting them could have any influence on them? At the same time many churches refuse to show support for pro-life, yet they jump on-board with BLM. So I think it is time to steel America before it is stolen.

Anarchy Destiny

I really do hate saying this but I know how America looks to the rest of the world: like a bunch of spoiled brats, sick to the rotten core, fighting over who will get their way.

Anyone who assumed the right kind of sanity would appear and save the day must be awfully disappointed, while they are sitting there waiting with their popcorn in hand.

I’m not saying we are but sure enough that is what it looks like. And there is good reason for that. A big part of all that is going on is not to convince us of anything, it is to break the spirit and will of America. In other words, the America we all know. That perception cannot be allowed to exist. No one can be proud of it and we should have to give in to forces with the loudest mouths screaming in the streets. That is supposed to be the outcome.

But how do you avoid that? Well, there is a tough question conjuring up all kinds of answers and none of them are appealing. Just the perception of America as a shinning city on a hill is not enough to deter these miscreants from their destiny schemes. Knowing they are outnumbered is not enough. Anarchy alone is not what makes it this evil, a lot of people contributed to it to make it that evil.

If you want another chilling thought to compliment the last, these people in the streets are not just trying to tear down society and revise history. No, they want to re-fight the civil war because they don’t like the way the last one turned out. They don’t just want to distort reality, they want to destroy it. In fact, they don’t like the founding much either.

Actually, there is nothing about this America they do like. Now their biggest problem is with those of us who do. They think they got nothing to lose. But this is what terrorists do.

Romney threw in with this bunch, why am I not surprised? (the face of a spoiled brat)

“We need to end violence and brutality, and to make sure that people understand that black lives matter.”- Mitt Romney the bitter-ender.

BLM Ties To Terrorism

Black Lives Matter fundraising handled by group with convicted terrorist on its board

by Jerry Dunleavy, Justice Department Reporter |  Washington Examiner
June 25, 2020

The co-founder of Black Lives Matter names a convicted cop killer as one of her heroes, and the BLM national organization is fiscally sponsored through a leftist group whose board of directors includes a convicted terrorist.

Alicia Garza, one of three co-founders of the Black Lives Matter national organization, has repeatedly talked about how convicted cop killer and wanted domestic terrorist Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, is one of her main inspirations. Susan Rosenberg, a member of the board of directors for the left-wing Thousand Currents group, which handles the intake of donations made to Black Lives Matter, is a convicted terrorist who, among other things, was suspected of helping Shakur escape from prison. …/

BLM has ties to terrorism? I’m shocked. Good read and reminder.

What Will You Kneel To?

Well, after 4-5 years in the making, has it all come down to this kneeling thing? There sure is an obsession about it. I can’t resist stating but kneeling for all the wrong reasons.

It started with Colin Kaepernick, when we all watched the protest symbol of decades become taking a knee to the national anthem. It was poo-pooed as a real issue but then respected by some as a form of protest. And protest it was but against cops, America or most everything about it.

It made Kaepernick famous for all the wrong reasons. It pretty well outed him as the radical he was. And those socks didn’t help any.

So we went through this cosmic kabuki dance where we decided we didn’t need that celebrated for the political opinion that it is. Sure we could have respected his right to his own views and speech, but this was football and his job, not his own youtube video.

But then, like everything the left does, they have to keep on pushing it. Why is it just because he is in perpetual protest I should have to agree with him? I shouldn’t and that is the point. After all, I have my free speech too. That freedom becomes a problem.

That all seems to go upside down now.

Black Lives Matter came along and we knew what they were about. It was a radical outfit with views that did not represent all Americans. BLM chased people off the stage and screamed over people, interfering with their free speech for not repeating those words and endorsing BLM’s views. Even Bernie was targeted.

They claimed they were not a political group or party. They were called non-political. Now we know them for the highly political group they are. We argued, then, that they were a radical shill for Democrats. They denied it.

Since Kaepernick started off his protest by kneeling, what better thing to do than have everyone kneeling to BLM and a movement of radicals? Now of course, anyone who does not is shunned and branded a racist. How many people bowed down to Black Lives Matter? Do they know what they’re doing?

If you didn’t understand it before, everyone should now. It is a complete turn around. Company’s grovel at BLM’s feet sending them cash. For what we don’t even know? They can all pretend BLM has no political agenda. They can even pretend what this is about.

Where did BLM go to reform itself and change its radical ways? It didn’t, it didn’t have to. Seems everyone came to them. It’s now mainstream and everyone is cool with it. What changed was the people. They have accepted these political pariahs and misfits as the cats meow they are not. And everything is supposed to be perfectly fine with this picture?

Remember Tea Parties were shunned and branded extremists. The BLM who are extremists and radicals are mainstreamed. Welcome to Crazy Town. The population is growing fast but be quiet about your normal views or we’ll ask you to leave. Common sense will not be tolerated. Thinking for yourself is not allowed.

So they’ve made taking a knee normal and the proper thing to do. But it is also kneeling to an organization with Marxist roots and no allegiance to this country, or freedom.

It has an entirely anti-American agenda and political platform. It is a radical organization run by the same It doesn’t respect our process or accept our economic system. It wants to change all of it. Venezuela and Cuba are its models. They are hardliner Soviet-style Bolshevik revolutionaries in the style of Socialists, Maoists and communists. There is no room for freedom loving nationalists, in their view.

Take a knee to that, and them, I don’t think so.

Then again, in all of it kneeling for the wrong reasons. It isn’t even in protest anymore, It is kneeling in submission to a Marxist political movement. Since when do we do that? While we could be on our knees to God asking for help to oppose and resist this humanism plot.

First it was sit down and shut up, and now it is kneel down and submit.
Just curious what oath our elected officials swore to? And what do they kneel to?

Somewhere in the back of it all, Freedom Still Matters.

Mayor Jenny Durkan’s Word Salad

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You are 0 for 2. 

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

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

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

The Trial On American Culture

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Well-Heeled Scumbags And Cannibal Activists

It clearly looks as though the well-heeled masses and elites are coalescing around the toxic movement of Black Lives Matter, and its ever-evolving agenda of stupidity.

The lesson here is that one can feed the mob, if one chooses, but one should realize he or she may inevitably be on the menu.

Sometimes it is not the poison that kills the rat but the fatal drink after that does it.

Apparently they are unaware of the eventual blowback to follow a radical movement of this kind, from the people. We cannot sustain America on a diet of this garbage for any time.

But completely naïve of this or any other consequences to getting in bed with a brood of vipers like the BLM, these captains of destiny put everything on the line to lend their name and support to a political movement that has no conscience. It takes no prisoners; only destroys its enemies.

At the risk of trying not to be one of its enemies, these well-heeled corporations and individual players seek to be on the woke side of events, and in whatever lies ahead for the movement. So they fund or lend their credibility, and some of their fortunes, to something that could well destroy them in the end. But who cares?

It reminds me of how the boycotts shook out way back. It seemed popular to cater to boycotters’ whims on one issue, for the time. However, they didn’t seem to get that when they were busy caving to demands, it was their own value and company reputation they were happily putting on the line. Whose skin in what game?

The point was who does that? What sane mindset risks what they personally built and earned by handing it off to young thugs who don’t give a damn about their hard work or its value? Seems stupid to cede control over it to the mob.

But never mind what it does to the real value of your company. Ah, but you momentarily thought you were improving the value of that company. That’s a laugh.

Don’t they realize they are just being used as pawns for the mob’s political agenda? (whatever that is) Thereby reducing the value of a company to the will of thugs and activists. Sound like a good idea?

Of course the correct and only alternative is not to cave in to the thugs in the first place. Consequences to that, you ask? Maybe so but which is better? At least then you retain your own control over it rather than giving it away on extortion schemes.

It’s not like these street thugs are paying anything for the use of your name or company – but only taking or borrowing on it. How does that enhance your interests?

So here they are, once again, doing the same thing. Now there are more of them creating a mob of their own. More well-heeled elites chipping into the coffers, or getting on their knees to apologize to the mob.

That is not any kind of existence I want to have. While they may think there is something noble about it or in it for them, it really is an empty vacuum that will suck the value out of you for having caved to the mob’s whims. It’s a one-way street. You won’t even get their respect from the mob for your generosity. They cannibalize you in a heartbeat and walk away, on to the next cause du jour on their agenda.

So my advice to these well-heeled marks and would-be dupes of destiny is do not allow the mob to weaponize you or your business for its political gain. You might think you are doing something good by getting behind a popular cause but are you? Don’t think that immunizes you from the wrath of the mob in the future. It won’t.

It’s a bit like a protection racket. The minute you don’t pay, suddenly you don’t have any windows or your cash register is busted. You don’t win with the mob, only they do. You will become yesterday’s bread no one wants. They will loot and burn down your business as easily as the corner store, figuratively and literally, for not complying with their demands.

So if you really value your reputation, credibility or business, then why turn it over to the mob? Why allow it to be weaponized or even used against you? Their cause may seem just but so is yours. And no insurance will cover that loss.

A New Thomas Paine

If you thought the American Revolution was so 1700’s, you would be wrong. We have an ongoing American Revolution happening right now. More and more people are finally realizing it, after spending years in denial. Social, civil, cultural all rolled into one.

As then, today’s Thomas Paine is a once little-known Tucker Carlson turned superstar. That is for being the one large megaphone speaking directly to and about what is going on.

But instead of being a hero he is attacked for his unbridled ability to tell the truth daily about the state of the revolution and stakes of it. Of course that only makes him a big target for Leftist thugs who care as much about free speech as Charman Mao.

Anyway, a real and active revolution it is today and it seems very few are willing to even try to stop it. But these are no freedom-loving revolutionaries waging it. In fact, sometimes you wonder what exactly they do stand for since it is not individual rights. It is more concerned with tearing down the social construct of civilization. Anything from bathrooms to police and border agents are in their cross hairs. And they seem to be getting their way.

I was floored to see Rasmussen say that 62% of people view Black Lives Matter favorably, or BLM. I knew that was not a good thing, if people think favorably about a Marxist revolutionary outfit that believes in stifling free speech.

When people in this country see a consensus of this kind forming, it should send chills up their back or light their hair on fire. But not here and not now. Sure, it’s all too cool.

The NYC Police Commissioner decides he is going to cut 600 non-uniformed, plain-clothes cops in NYC. Why would he do that? Well, to appease the radicals and the mayor.

I heard someone mocking our notion about defunding police saying how ridiculous we are. She said they don’t want to cut cops. I don’t know how we would abolish cops, she added? Well, how about one cop at a time? That’s how. It’s called attrition.

When you cut the funds or simply detour them elsewhere, then it forces cuts. And when cops leave or are forced out, you don’t replace them. The NY Comm. is giving them a big head start by whacking 600 off the top. Pretty soon you just don’t have the funds to adequately support police. But we are supposed to be dumb enough not to believe it?

This radicalism is also telegraphing a direct threat. They are telling us 5 months before election that if we should elect Donald Trump, again, look what is going to happen everywhere. So if you don’t yet see this as a revolution or threat, you should start to because it is not changing or going away.

Now here is another poll from Rasmussen. It finds that “40% see civil war as likely.” What if we were already engaged in civil war but have not yet realized it? What does it take? I mean they are doing their damndest to send us that message. We would be stupid not to get it. Seems like 40% of people have begun to accept that message.

And so far, Tucker Carlson is the only one calling it as it is.
