Just in time to warm the cockles of the radical Left on Veteran’s Day
Newspaper gives a shout out on Veteran’s day…..to Colin Kaepernick.
Remember the days when Democrats ran in the midterm elections? They claimed they had a legit agenda. They claimed it was not all about Trump.
So many of the Democrats dismissed themselves from partisan politics. They just wanted to work for the people and get things done. So they said.
McCaskill said I’m not one of those crazy Democrats. Guess what? Call her MSNBC crazy just like the rest of the triggered Dem freaks.
They were not running on an impeachment agenda, they said. Guess what? It’s their only agenda. They did not want open borders. Guess what? That’s exactly what they want.
Remember these old lines in their greatest hits:
We don’t want socialism
We don’t want to take your guns
We don’t want to raise taxes on working families
We don’t want late term or partial birth abortions.
We don’t want to force government to pay for abortions.
We don’t want to destroy the economy.
We don’t want to raise taxes on working people.
We don’t want to eliminate jobs.
We don’t want to hurt the middle class.
We don’t want to eliminate fossil fuels.
We are not socialists.
We don’t want open borders.
We don’t want single-payer. we only want to fix Obamacare.
We don’t want to cut the military.
We believe in the rule of law.
We are not trying to do a coup.
We are defending democracy
We just want to work together.
We are not running on impeachment.
We don’t want to shut down government.
Democrats don’t want to eliminate private insurance.
There is no Deep State conspiracy against Trump.
We don’t support violence.
We will call out any hateful rhetoric, no matter which side.
We accept the results of elections.
Let’s just call it like it is, virtually everything they tell us is a lie. Dems supprt:
Medicare for All
Eliminating private insurance
Giving free healthcare to illegal aliens
Free College for illegals
Welfare for illegals
Late term and partial birth abortion
Government funding of abortion
Expanding and stacking the Supreme Court
Judicial activism and judicial tyranny
No separation of powers
Destroying the economy
Eliminating private insurance
Undermining national security and the miliatary
Restorative Justice (you know what that is)
Destroying the 1st and 2nd amendments, stomping on the 5th and 14th
Abuse of power
Politicizing the DOJ and FBI
Supporting domestic terrorists
Resisting democracy — or democratic results

Question of the day. A while back, this single-digit reader base would remember I promised to regularly probe some of the deepest questions of our time.
Well, I have one.
A 3-letter news channel interviewed Democrat candidate Michael Bennet. They were talking about Medicare for All, and eliminating private insurance, which he doesn’t seem to support. Bennet claimed Democrats don’t like it that much. They said but Bernie and Elizabeth Warren are getting lots of support. “How do you explain that?” He said ‘well, maybe Democrats are supporting them for other reasons.’ But Bernie is so popular.
So he claims they are supporting them for different reasons. Then he adds that Bernie is one of the most popular politicians in the country, and Elizabeth Warren has a star-celeb status among Dems, too. Naturally they are going to get loads of support, he says. He also asserted that “Medicare for All” schemes were not really plans but an entire ideology.
Now then, let’s reverse engineer that idea. I am old enough to remember when Bernie was a pariah of the Democrat Party. They distanced themselves from him like the plague, at least publicly. He was persona non grata as a member, let alone a credible presidential candidate. He wanted to annex part of New England into Canada for Pete’s sake. Even his incessant utterance of the word “socialism” was repulsive then to much of the Left.
They really did not want much to do with his craziness. Well, times have changed. One thing Democrats don’t count on is for people to have long memories. Bernie is now the most popular and notable Leftist among Democrats. He popularized the term Democratic Socialist and successfully applied it to most of the base. Times do change.
The real question is how did he go from that old Bernie Sanders the crazy, to the new Bernie the trendiest politician? Yet he really did not change his ideas or beliefs. But there is the Left worshiping at his feet. So if anything new is happening on the Left, it has to go through Bernie first. How did he take over the Democrat Party and their base?
It cannot be argued that he is a radical. Democrats in general are radicals. But Bernie is the Pied Piper of Socialism, until someone knocks him off that socialist pedestal. It is his movement. From pariah to proprietor. He’s the gatekeeper to new and cool ideas. I don’t claim to understand it nor can I explain it.
Yet, like the great pyramids or the Sphinx, there he is in full regalia. An anomaly of our times. What of Bennet? He is now the outlier. He was as lost to explain Bernie’s popularity as the Sphinx. The good news for other radical socialists is they don’t have to go through a transition, they can get elected as instant socialist heroes now just like the squad.

Only somehow those are questions the 3-letter news channel cares nothing about probing.

One thing that American people should be outraged about is any idea that the success of the current US president – indeed future of the US – should be determined by Ukraine. Not to mention our election of a president and the next one.
But this is the exact situation the Democrats have put America in. Ukraine is now at the center of all that. We should be appalled but many people are cheering this on.
We just annexed the future of America to a former satellite country of the USSR. One that has had its share of corruption and is engaged in its own sovereign preservation. Something Trump wanted to look into.
But back in 2016, radical Democrats put Ukraine smack into the center of their conspiracy theory (coup in the making) by DNC’s and Democrat operatives’ collusion with it in US election politics. Ever since they have been covering for that fact. Now they have brought Ukraine straightforward into their current goal of trying to impeach the POTUS.
I can’t believe this is anything the people would care about, with regard to choosing our president, except for remote hopes of working with Ukraine to eliminate corruption. But that corruption in Ukraine is where Americans’ concern stops.
It is hard for me to believe that people want Ulraine to determine our present president or our future one. That would seem absurd. But apparently that is the road Democrats are going down and what they believe. Their whole impeachment now rests on a corrupt country waging a battle to protect itself from Russia’s covetous hand.
If Democrats do not want foreign meddling or interference in our elections, they sure have a real funny way of showing it. If successful, it is hard to imagine there will not be some heavy consequences for that. Imagine the people who were obsessed for two and and a half years with a myth of foreign influence in our elections, now are determined to once again inject foreign interference into our politics.
Do Americans fall for such a cheap plot? I don’t believe so. But radicalized Democrats are determined and invested in making that case for it.
Then they put an acting ambassador to that country at the center of their “resistance” case. So while Ukraine is resisting Russia’s military overtures, Democrats put that whole issue into the center of their seditious resistance against a sitting US president – even in congress. And they are etching Ukraine into US history by doing so. They have entered Ukraine into the congressional record in one of the most serious things congress can undertake in America, the impeachment of a president.
But make no mistake; they had put Ukraine in the center of election politics since the 2016 election. They continue to build on that plot right into their current seditious coup mission.

The tears of a commie. I think what happened is AOC confused motherhood with mother earth and believes she is mother earth. Reminds me of an old margarine commercial.
Daily Wire — Ryan Saavedra
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) cried on Friday during a climate alarmist speech in Copenhagen at the C40 World Mayors Summit where she claimed that her “dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet because of what I know about our children’s future.”
Ocasio-Cortez began her alarmist speech by claiming that humanity was at a crossroads of “extinction or opportunity,” adding that there is “no middle road” on climate policy.
“The climate crisis is already here,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “On this note I speak to you not as an elected official or public figure, but I speak to you as a human being — a woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet because of what I know about our children’s future, and that our actions are responsible for bringing their most dire possibilities into focus. I speak to you as a daughter and descendant of colonized peoples who have already begun to suffer.”
“It is not a coincidence that these disasters get relatively little media coverage, and that even less of the coverage dares to mention climate change,” Ocasio-Cortez falsely claimed. Media coverage of natural disasters often get significant coverage, with “climate change” being one of the top points parroted by the media.
“It is not a coincidence that the truth is controversial,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “None of this is a coincidence because climate change is not a coincidence or a scientific anomaly. Climate change is a consequence. It is a consequence of our unsustainable way of life.”
Ocasio-Cortez then suggested that capitalism promotes “lawbreaking pursuit of profit” and that capitalism only benefits “the very few,” despite the fact that capitalism has lifted more people out of extreme poverty than any other economic system.
Ocasio-Cortez then admitted that her far-left $93 trillion plan is really about “chang[ing] society” and “winning” in politics, and that the desired outcomes are to fix “injustice” and promote “equality.”
This is similar to what Ocasio-Cortez’s former chief-of-staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted during an interview.
The Washington Post reports:
Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” [Sam Ricketts, climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D)] greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” [emphasis added]

Well, no middle of her road. I’m not sure she is qualified to speak as a human being. All that Marxist stuff running through her veins would sort of contradict that.
No coverage on the “climate crisis?” That’s all they talk about. The MSM cannot cover a legitimate natural disaster without making it about climate change or Global Warming.
No, it’s not a coincidence or scientific anomaly …. it is pure politics and socialism, about defying all our freedoms and rights. They admit it isn’t about climate change; it’s about their agenda. So what are the consequences of that agenda?
What is really “unsustainable” is their socialist agenda and the supporting government for it. But it doesn’t look like anyone will address that problem soon enough.
Right on the heals of AOC’s statement, Bernie says Elizabeth Warren may be a “capitalist in her bones, but I’m not.” Nope, he’s a commie and past the socialist garden long ago. But he has it exactly backwards. Socialism only benefits few ringmasters, the puppet masters. It is meant to be a transformational thing — to our politics and economy. And they don’t really care about the dire consequences on either of them.
In a few years it will be “the day the music died” — her music and Bernie’s pied piper tune. I’m also wondering if she could be a poltergeist?
It is us who are in the real fight to save ourselves and country from the doom and gloom of AOC and her tribe of commie buddies. That’s a challenge. Why does that thought of someone calling AOC a mom bother me so much?
So maybe I have a little surprise for AOC and her commie pals. There are some things we ain’t ever going to see. And your socialist plans are right at the top of the list.
On a serious note, I’m going to do something I never like or want to do but in the interest of critical understanding, I think I must do. It is a shame that circumstances should require that someone say these things. Yet those are the times we are in.
It is important to know why and I think that in itself is the reason to do it. I don’t do it out of animus for the country or what US stands for. It is for perspective in fighting the narratives radical leftists have foisted on us. We must know the enemy.
So with all the outrage about what happened with (A) a phone call to Ukraine and now (B) a report on what Trump told Kislyak in the famous White House meeting after Comey was fired and (C)Pelosi’s unilateral “official impeachment inquiry” started; there are a few loose ends and statements that need to be examined further.
Most of this is not new, but what is new is the level of the Left’s frenzy surrounding it all. Media is doing their level best to roll this into one big mud pie to fuel their impeachment efforts. Almost on cue as expected. They have no real concern or loyalty to the nation, nor do they care about the damage it does. They are willing to sacrifice everything about our country to try to get Donald Trump.
They have already referred to Trump recently in choreographed mobster terms. (Aka Don Corleone) When have we ever seen this before? Never. And they have their other favorite tool used to attack Trump, our intelligence — however they can use it and say whatever against a sitting president to hurt him. Another narrative is that Trump is somehow green-lighting the Russians to meddle in other countries’ elections. The idea Trump would have equated or admitted to Russia that, essentially, we meddled in elections and was not upset by what Russia did in our elections sounds damning. (the gaining media narrative)
Leftists are offended saying we don’t meddle in elections. Well, let’s just take Obama for example. He meddled in Egypt, Israel, and even his team in Canadian elections. He also basically intervened in the Brexit vote. I’m sure that is only scratching the surface. If it is one thing Obama liked to do, it was intervene in elections. I’m sure there is much to Putin’s claims of Hillary meddling in Russia’s election. At least most people in Russia believe State and Hillary did. And we know how some of that meddling turned out – not well.
We meddled in the control of the dictator, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, in Libya by sanctioning his killing. To hell with elections, there’s always Plan B.
Let me cut the chase here with a bigger narrative yet to roll out. Whenever there are skirmishes or deep disagreements anywhere in the world, Russia is plotting on how it can extort the situation for their gain. Putin as I noted before is the consummate opportunist. Years back he took on an aura of a conservative leader causing people, like Pat Buchanan, to compliment what seemed a more traditional domestic approach. What’s not to like?
But not to be fooled, he was not the Harley-riding conservative fellow conservatives here may have envisioned, but only an opportunist who was carefully feeding people what they wanted to see and hear. He had family plans with incentives for having more children and a friendlier outreach toward Christians. Welcome changes one would think, in contrast with what we saw from Obama. The Planned Parenthood saint of death with an anti-Christian bigotry. He was happily riding a Sherman Tank over American traditions.
Now in the present situation, we are presenting more opportunities to Putin. The Left has brought impeachment, Trump hatred, controversy and a slice of corruption to the Ukraine. What better place for it? You might say controversy and corruption are no strangers there. And all is within Putin’s operating realm in the last few years. For people to get so choked up on corruption or domestic politics there, then be thrust in with a scandal involving the US, is made to order fodder for the opportunist Putin.
Just days ago the word spread that Putin has Russians dispatched in Libya operating in that current conflict where ISIS or terrorists are gaining a foothold and vying for political power. Sound familiar? Russia parlayed Syria into a net gain over humanitarianism, and the ISIS crisis into a greater strategic plan for Russia. Thanks John Kerry.
Now their attention is back on Ukraine, his long time nemesis. A new president taking office on an anti-corruption plan offers yet more opportunity for Putin’s insatiable appetite. In so many ways Democrats are once again playing right into the hands of a conniving Putin, with little restraint for involvement. As the smoke of controversy rises in the Ukraine, the cloud of Putin will gravitate to it like bees to honey. Cleaning up corruption, you say? We shall see what eats away at that agenda.
For the worst part in it all: what does Putin think, or what talking points might we expect to hear from the Kremlin on the subject? (it pains me to think it) You don’t have to worry about giving them ideas because they are old experts on propaganda. He might simply inject himself as a level mediator to all sides. He might propose some sort of deal to get the ball rolling, and emphasis off fixing corruption. He might make some offer to volunteer some help or guidance. But all those would be open holes created by zealous Democrats who’s only interest is attacking Trump. Putin doesn’t have to worry, because Democrats will provide him more opportunities than he could ever create for himself.
That’s what they did for him from the 2016 elections. To this day, Hillary and Democrats credit Russia — and particularly Putin — with achieving the outcome of our election. They credit Putin with more influence than he could have hoped for.
Not to ever leave out the king of corruption and influence in countries and elections, George Soros. In Ukraine, there have to be many connections along with the DNC. Soros and the orgs he supports are certainly not non-political either. More Soros influence will ooze out. A corrupt political system, what a fertile ground for Soros to operate? He can do a lot of damage there. So the Soros effect on Ukraine probably cannot be overstated.
Then there is the glaring takeaway lesson we gave to Russia on the 2016 election: that we don’t really care about or respect elections. When it comes down to it that is just talk. Actually Hillary just reminded us, once again, in the media that the 2016 election was illegitimate. How can you have more contempt for the electoral system than that?
Further troubling is the movement afoot to throw out the electoral college process — an inherent blueprint in the Constitution. Well, who really cares about the Constitution anyway? So the election did provide many benefits to a meddling Russia. If you have people in America who don’t even accept their own election process, or final results of it, then one serial meddler in Russia would have a whole lot to work with.
There remains a lot of space to fill by Russia’s narratives. And they are the masters at saturating the air with them and diverting public scrutiny. First off: is this an example of how America operates in other countries? See how they enrich themselves while really caring nothing for democracy they claim to love. That’s a great narrative.
And there are pleny more narratives the Russians can plug into current circumstances, custom created by the left, and our political feuds here. Just like all the foreign interference the left dabbled in with our last election. Call that a meddlers stew.
What really undermines our national security and credibility are Democrats. Everywhere you look they compromise our security. The claim that a phone call with Ukraine threatens our national security is ludicrous. But they want to impeach Trump over a foreign call, which is way too much foreign interference over our elections for me.
Imagine that — just as domestic policies at home are finally going in the right direction — they try to take Trump down over a foreign phone call. Do people care about it?

I’ve been watching the media battering ram and reading some of the leftist tripe about their greatest fears of Trump. Well, it is pretty funny actually.
They spew on in hatred about their disgust for Trump. They don’t get it. That they so detest Donald Trump is the very best endorsement they could ever shower him with.
Oh yeah, Trump is exactly the right guy at exactly the right time. They prove it with every move they make, with every dirty news segment, with every bit of their emotional vitriol, with all their overflowing intolerance for the man.
Democrats could do nothing better for him or conservatives. The more they belch, the truer that is. It only exposes the left and illuminates how evil it really is.
Now that Democrats have officially pulled the impeachment trigger, I think that technically makes them crazier than Rod Blagojevich. Blago just went around shooting his mouth off about this valuable thing he had. In the end, his ambitions did him in.
Democrats are willing to cast all their marbles on an unofficial impeachment process they aren’t even wiling to vote on to move forward. See any parallels?
Democrats have had a fatal attraction with impeachment. They were determined to to do it and use it. Let no reasonable thing deter or come between it and them. It was golden.
They know impeachment can kill them but they don’t care anymore. First they just schemed, talked about it and raised money with it. It was their final plan but at the forefront of their minds right after Trump’s inauguration — their election solution.
Is it really any wonder impeachment was their plan all along? Claire McCaskill illustrated it when she said she was not one of those crazy Democrats. Turns out she was and is. (now an MSNBC contributor pushing the far left agenda) In 2018 Dems said they were not running on impeachment. But it was all they were running on.
Dems fatal attraction with impeachment could not be stopped. Nancy could not intervene to say that was not good for them. They wouldn’t listen. Democrats were willing to sacrifice the country trying to get Trump. So now we see Dems are willing to destroy themselves in the process, if that is what it takes, to try to get Trump.
In reality, their opposition could not ask for anything better then that. They are willing to overlook any and every concern in the country to ram impeachment down our throats.
The only problem for them is now Trump has something golden. He exposed them for who they are. Their phony impeachment thing is utopia only in their minds, yet they are so committed to it. Why not go about it the right way with a vote to open it? It’s all about trying to stir the public into the same frenzy they are in. People are going to look at them like the train wreck they are. They have been at this since even before he took office. And people have grown less amused. All Democrats want is for the people to be in the same state of panic and misery they are in. Polls seem to be swaying their way.
What they really want to do is impeach the will of the people who put him in office. But they can’t. So it’s revenge time. It’s time to take their hatred out on the voters who elected him. They tried doxing supporters; they tried mocking and threatening them. Now they want to impeach him but they cannot remove him from office. But they are targeting us.

We are now in the preception is reality phase. We used to be in a perception vs reality stage that depended on some sane people who did not adopt phony perception arguments.
We seem to have moved past that and past all those sane voices.
Those voices are merely drowned out by the masses. All Leftinistas ever needed was enough people to push hard enough to convince people their perception is reality.
Well, we are now at that intersection where there are no red lights, no stop signs, no caution signs. Listen and those voices will tell you where you are and what to feel.
So it means for a lot of people, our world and conditions are whatever leftist radicals say.
Yet I keep hearing about the importance of the “integrity of our elections.” Pelosi prattles on about saving, preserving, protecting, upholding and the rule of law. Gasp.
While claiming to be “saving democracy,” they are actively destroying it – claiming to protect it they are intent on killing it.

Time for another new term. Commies are up to no good. That is not open for debate. And we now have entered an era I am calling commifusion. You heard the word here first. (always a good sign in coining a new term when even Google never heard of it before)
That is a period in which all political issues, along with the terms of debate, are intentionally fused with communism ideals. Nothing is exempt.
For those dissenters on the left who disagree, it is not possible to say they personally are not affiliated or have no sympathies with communism. That is because all the left practices the same radical tactics that by their nature enshrine and empower Marxist communism. So claiming dissociation does not work.
It is these radical tactics, once used mostly by commie leftists, that are now widely employed, taught and encouraged. Most everyone on the left adopted those terms and thus is a radical activist these days. If you are woke you know it, too. No one can be a stranger to the radical means of politics today. It is the caviar and vodka of the left’s politics and no one can deny that anymore.
That is the way it works with Islamists and Muslims. If you use the same terms and argue the same radical way the jihadis do, then there is no difference. You are lending aid and support to Islamists. (and even they know it) One’s personal belief is irrelevant.
The methodology of the argument is what matters.
In the case of the Left it basically works the same way. You can think or say you are not a radical Marxist but all your efforts help empower and further their agenda. So that even applies to some Republicans, but certainly to many dumb Democrats. The distinction of Socialism not Marxism or communism, is also a pointless one.
Years ago, Bart Stupak tried to stand up for an old coalition — albeit a small one — of pro-life Democrats. He found out his views were not welcome any longer. The DNC could not tolerate counter views or their message. But up until that point, he was only fooling himself that they mattered within the Party. It is the way homogenized radicalism works. You either survive on the nature of radical Marxism or you don’t survive, period.
Those are the left’s terms for all politics today.
Who is fooling whom? Either they contribute to cannibalism or become a victim of it. There is no third choice. Commifusion is the product, radicalism is the means.

Lost: an entire political party that believed in anything else besides socialism, Marxism, lawlessness and the culture of death. Last seen sometime in the 1900’s.

People who know me or have read my ramblings know I am not a big proponent for conspiracy theories. The more elaborate ones rampant in marginal politics anyway.
However, I’ll make an exception and go full conspiracy mode here in one case. And former Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, now present Pope Francis, is right smack in the middle of it.
Before I get too far down the path, I have to say I followed many of his statements. I see the lectures. Like everyone, I shake my head at the ridiculousness of Pope Francis.
If you are looking for a reference of other write ups then try this one from Townhall:
The Fool in the Vatican — It’s a good start.
After all that going on for years, I wonder what is behind it or if there is more to it? I conclude there is, but I am not sure exactly what. Let me offer a few ideas. Another disclaimer is necessary: as always, this is not a Pope bashing agenda. I would ask Jesuits to seriously question what is going on here? After all. it is their home field.
I don’t have to list all the controversial things he has said, which would seem to go against the Catholic precedent and doctrines. He has not been shy about making remarks that has him acting more like Obama than the Pope of the Catholic Church. No, then the reasons for this? And there could be many. I racked my brain trying to come up with some.
But Francis has to know he is turning off many of the “faithful”. Those are ardent, proud traditional Catholics. So what’s the deal: does he care, is he ignorant to it, or is he in denial about it? Is he aware he is stepping outside usual CC lines by venturing into controversial, politically charged areas? Why does he feel obligated to do it?
I could easily plead the ignorant case. I could also say he is in denial. But I won’t. I give the man credit for knowing what he is doing. But why?
I come to the conclusion he just doesn’t care if he is pissing off (or pissing on) a lot of that “faithful” flock. I believe he is well ware. So is he intentionally trying to be divisive? I do believe there is intent behind it. Is it a not so secret anti-Catholic agenda?
I think he has calculated that he doesn’t care about numbers. He really doesn’t care about orthodoxy either. I think, while it might be malicious. he has decided if many people balk and walk away in protest or disgust, so be it. I think he decided that the remnant left (a pun) would be better off thinning the ranks. If dissatisfied leave, it’s better for him. He obviously has no interest in either pandering to the disgruntled or appealing to them. In fact, he may be out to send them a strong message that they are not welcome.
If it comes to a point of choice between him and and them, it is them who are not welcome in the Church — not him or his leftist allies. And he has dug in on that note. Is it a full throated takeover of the CC? You might call it that.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always had my disagreements with the Roman Church, which is why I am a protestant evangelical. But, like Catholics, I look for reasons and explanation why he is doing this? No, I don’t believe it is really God’s call he is following. I think there are other voices, and it’s not divine revelation. In fact, I don’t see anything divinely inspired about it. It is secularism (humanism) he seems to follow. It’s equally divisive.
At any rate, he has already decided that alienating a whole lot of Catholics is justified. As I said, what will remain in who likes it is more important to him. Actually, it is the only thing that does matter to him. He is adhering to a worldview, not necessarily a Church-view. And the Church can take a hike.
What gives me the idea those dissatisfied are not welcome? Look at his statements. Time and again when he makes a wild statement on current policies of governments and says “you are not Christian” if you don’t agree. So if you don’t like open borders, you are not a Christian. Next, if you don’t like socialism, you are not a Christian. He always frames it in those terms. Basically, he is saying if you disagree with you are not a Christian and also a bigot. You are both. He marginalizes anyone who does not accept Leftist orthodoxy. (far left at that). Now we come to the genesis of it all.
Politics. He has determined politics is the act of the Church. He would rather see the Church playing politics than following God’s commands. And he is out to make the CC chief Church of Politics. That is because everything he is concerned or talking about is part of a politically-driven agenda. He is fine with that. In fact, he is endorsing it in what he is doing. He is telling you disagreement is not an option and you are not Christian if you disagree.
So if that Secular Humanism corrupts the Catholic Church, too bad. Celebrate it!
Now I made my case about it. What is yours?

It is that important national day of 9-11, once again, with all that it entangles. I find myself still in a constant state of mourning for all the families and great loss of that day, 18 years ago today — feeling more like it’s been 18 months. The kind of loss so big that it always leaves a lump in my throat.
But now, on this day, I am also in mourning for something else. I mourn the loss of CNN, too. Yes, you heard me right, grief not grievance.
I remember back in the early 90’s when CNN was a fledgling news channel as it covered the first Iraq war, Dessert Storm. I recall C-130 Hercules transport planes flying non-stop overhead 24 hours a day in a perpetual pattern. I was told that’s what they were.
For the up to date information, you could turn to CNN as a source for news. Wolf Blitzer was on location there somewhere reporting what was going on. It was called the first televised war — even if that was a distortion. CNN was one voice in a vacuum demanding real-time information. We needed to know what was happening in a country finding its war and defensive posture. CNN was there. Maybe reports were not complete or up to the second but it is all we had. In fact, before it started we were well aware of circumstances via media reports. No internet to rely on either.
Contrast that with the menu of cable news we have now, with Internet and social media compliments. It’s almost hard to imagine that CNN was so prominent of a news source then. But those days are gone, and so is CNN as a credible news source.
So today I am mourning that loss as well as 9-11. Back on 9-11, 2001, CNN tried to keep up with a slurry of news. They tried, at least temporarily, to provide unbiased coverage. I have to say, by then, Fox did a better job. Cable went commercial free for days in wall-to-wall coverage. We were mostly a unified nation, even if George Bush was the President. (Not Al Gore)
The bad guys were in the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan. A new area we didn’t know that much about. So much to do and say. Before a military response, there were debates in Congress and they lined up supporting force. Only a few outliers.
Well, with all the mourning today, there are a number of things regarding 9-11 that can anger me like almost nothing else. Those are: lack of respecting or accepting the attack for what it was, trivializing the sanctity of the day; drawing unreasonable parallels or equating other acts of violence to it; using that historical event to promote other partisan political agendas; giving short shrift to victims of that day that continue to mount; or depriving those victims of dialogue and justice that still evades them all these years later. Or, basically misusing the memory or sacred observance of the day. (even 18 years after)
But CNN manages to do about all those, on the day it is memorialized in 2019. And they did it as a matter of programming, which reveals planning. I could list endless poof and examples but that is more writing than I care to do now. I shouldn’t have to that is obvious. It is not only CNN but the entire left does the same. It is not nit-picking.
So cable news chose to talk about gun control, the impeachment agenda and normal partisan gotcha politics. There are 364 other days in the year and that is not enough, they have to corrupt this one too, like everything else?
No, they could not even be bothered to respect the memory and events of the day. They must defile the day’s memory and its significant importance. Nothing is sacred.
Congratulations, CNN, because today you earned the “enemy of the people” title anew!

Townhall — Matt Vespa
You know, it’s hard to lose votes as a Democrat in San Francisco. It may be even harder to lose voters if you’re a self-identified democratic socialist. The Left coast is brimming with them. And yet, Sen. Bernie Sanders has managed to lose a voter in San Francisco for simply being a bad customer at a local restaurant. He was a miserable curmudgeon apparently. He was rude to the owner’s staff. That owner says he’s lost his vote. It may be just one vote,…/
Well, what do you expect? Ever met a real nice socialist or commie? That’s kind of their thing. He could be following Kirsten Gillibrand, who’s motto is “I’m not very polite!”
This topic has been marinating for some time, and I suppose this is as good a time as any to drop it out here. It is an increasingly broad subject, covering many areas.
Call me crazy but…. no, forget the but, just call me crazy. And I promise not to disappoint you. How’s that sound?
These days it’s easier just to admit you are crazy at the beginning. There is a reason. I mean you will be called that anyway, so why not use it to your advantage? Take the sting out it. Embrace it; make it your own!
So I’ve been through discussion cycles many times with Leftists where the more right you are, the crazier they try to paint you. I know sanity is not actually in vogue these days. Not if you pay attention to what passes for normal in our current events.
Crazy has become the new normal, if you notice that? So those outliers and sane people like us, and I do include myself, are now out on the margins. In fact, we’re now right where they want us. For years they have been working on abolishing normal, or normalizing abnormal. They finally succeeded.
You name the subject or issue and the response would be “that’s crazy”. That’s because it is. Now the real crazies are those who believe it is normal. They just don’t know it. That’s what makes them crazy by any measurement. They like to pretend that either normal never really existed or it is now deceased. So they’ve already answered any question about the obituary and just moved on. This fits the agenda of radical Leftists.
But if you don’t accept their new crazy as normal, then you must be crazy. The problem is I am wondering if there really is a way back from here? I mean it used to be recovery pros told addicts, when they stop drinking or gave up doing drugs, some semblance of normalcy would come back, in time. But will it this time…no matter how much time we give it?
The Left finally shot that gap between the Milky Way and everything else. And I don’t think it is coming back. But these days, sobriety without drugs and alcohol can only conclude how crazy everything is. They’ve all gone mad. They don’t need drugs to play games with their mind. North is South. (I’ve made that case for political chaos before)
My guess is simply progressives (commies, Marxists, radicals) do not want us returning to any normal sanity. They worked hard enough to marginalize it. Heck, they don’t want sanity to even have a seat at the table. They want crazy on one side and crazier on the other side. Have them shake hands in the middle and work it all out. But you know crazier typically wins now, it has to. That’s the other new rule.
That way if you should try to apply logic, then illogic must win every time. This really is their destination for us. Only the trip isn’t over yet, we’re still going on. We can’t even say if we’re halfway through, or three quarters, or one third. We don’t know exactly, only that we started. And onward we go, which isn’t necessarily forward. Sans the crazy hats.
Remember the ET movie with that line “ET phone home?” It’s like there is no home to phone. They cut the lines. They don’t want you to know there ever was a home, much less a phone. All there is now is this place in time that has no relevance to any other place in time. And memory is the last thing to be destroyed because you cannot know who you are, or from where, if you have no memory.
See how crazy it all is now, in some twisted and sinister way? If you mention some truth, they will call you a conspiracy nut. No, truth is nothing to mess or fool with these days. It’s dangerous too. Enough of it could even kill you.
Like on the Mueller probe, they want you to believe all of that was really normal and all the other stuff you and I see of actual truth is Crazy Town. Gaslighting personified. They’ve done a pretty good job of programming their people to go along with that script. They get to write it as it goes. Rather convenient.
At this point, I am starting to think that — aside from all those things leftists rail about — any semblance of our real “Normal” is probably one of their biggest enemies. They prefer it not returning, until that is they can completely control it. Well, then it would not be real normalcy, but faux normal. A fraud.
So, be well my fellow crazies. Our time is not over but it will take work from here. See, I don’t mind being called crazy if their new definition of normalcy is insanity with no limits.

We’ve now heard Trump blamed for almost everything since he took office, and even for things before he took office like Russia election meddling. To accept some part of it all would be virtually impossible for one man to accomplish. It strains any credulity.
They tried this with Bush and they never did it to Obama. But now they took it to such staggering heights that everything by default is Trump’s fault, going back 8 years.
It makes me wonder what the Left would do without their Scapegoat in Chief? This could be dismissed if it were from the fringes of the Left, but it isn’t. The blame fest has come from lamestream media. It comes from top tiers of the Democrat party and all their candidates, too. Is there a Democrat running who hasn’t blamed Trump for everything?
I am going to leave this right here, though in the hands of our enemies that is a dangerous tool for them to have access to. As if that has not occurred to the Left how it could be used? But they probably think anything bad that comes from their blame campaign can also be blamed on Trump – the more the better. They don’t care about the damage.
Surely shady people in dark places are fascinated by this playing out on a public stage, in this reactional way. And it has been very public. It encourages others, like even the Mayor of London, to chime in. He has his own low approval turmoils but that doesn’t stop him from lashing out in defiance at Trump. For what, when did Trump do anything to him?
No, that is beside the point. It seems to be open season. Get into any trouble or political problems, just blame Trump to score political points. Then use them, save them, collect and trade them with others; blame Trump has become the new currency. Even an international one. It attracts support and is used to raise money, and spent like capital.
About the only thing coming even close to this phenomena is the blame Mitch McConnell campaign. The Left is having a field day tying Mitch’s name to every problem and issue, from Russia to the latest shootings. The left cleverly (I shouldn’t call it clever) attaches cute hashtags to every event using Mitch. Fill in the blank so they can get it trending.
This creates another new phenomena in the social media age for trolls, Leftists, or hashtag architects. Their personal net-value at a given time — politically and socially — is only determined by what is trending on Twitter. These titans of social media are hashtag warriors, radicalized with whatever groups of others they are connected.
Against these blue waves of fascism stands one man, armed with his Twitter account. Instead of president, I’ll call Trump the Pope of Twitter. Not every foe of Trump is worthy of his Twitter arsenal, but when they are singled out they feel the sting of social media themselves. Their fifteen minuets of fame turns into fifteen minutes of flames.
Many of them can’t take the pressure or heat. Some of them have a hard time going back into the hole they came out of after the fact. It is the equalizer. Hashtag that.
Some of those hashtag warriors would accuse Trump of weaponizing Twitter or social media. But no, that is exactly what they’ve done. Trump is only engaging on their terms. They politicize and weaponize every platform they touch. It is the nature of radicals. It is who they are. But they cry when the social media winds are not in their favor.

My suggestion to Democrats would be come back to reality. But I don’t expect that happening anytime soon. They’ve taken decades getting here.
I do wonder though why every day they are just out to prove that is not possible? It is not bad alone to have the Democrat party, but as a collective it is evil in what they do.
Sadly, you cannot attribute the same characteristics of a person to a party. That would be a mistake. But that is exactly what many on the Left try to do to Republicans. You know how they constantly refer to the party, how Republicans should do this or stop doing that, as if they were appealing to a single person. It is one way they shame Republicans for being out of step with the party.
Well, on the left, party is all they have as a collective. It’s where the power resides. Because individual persons are powerless and/or insignificant. Individuals only have relevant meaning and power within the Democrat party. They really don’t make any bones about that. It is their driving purpose to give power to the voiceless and powerless. And they believe in keeping those people voiceless and powerless without the party.
So, that said, how is it they have those like AOC and Omar doing what they do and no one challenges them? We seem to be struck by the phenomena but it fits entirely with the party. They have taken over the reins of the party apparatus. You can argue about that but it is true. They proved the significant flaw with the party. Someone can rise through leftist tripe and ascend to the head of the party — even without election. It has been proven, first with Bernie and now with the Squad. In fact that was the objective of the Social Democrats’ “Justice Democrats”. Takeover is their objective.
You don’t see the same thing with the Republican party. Oh the Democrats project that theory on Republicans. It is not a reality though, someone doesn’t just hijack the party. They say “but Trump…” No, it’s not the same. If I have to explain it there is a problem.
But it is a simple process on the left. All one has to do is present ideas and incentives to entice people to support him/her. Offer them college tuition, reparations, money or benefits, rights, or power over others for their support. Bernie did not invent the formula though he was only perfecting it to fit his objective. Now he boasts about it.
I saw an interview with Pennsylvania voters that illustrates the hypocrisy of the left. The Democrats were enraged by Trump. They said why doesn’t the party rein him in, he is out of control? They said he needed to be stopped and of course they blamed the Republicans for not standing up. Nazi comparisons came in and they branded him a racist.
But then when the same Democrats were asked about what they thought of AOC and the squad, with their statements and animosity against America, they all agreed AOC’s Squad were a good thing. Two of the four expressed they were refreshing and just what Democrats needed. One black woman said she wants them to shake things up. She said it was what Dems needed. See the difference?
They love Democrats acting that way, but Donald Trump is a racist who needs to be controlled. And they did not have any idea they were contradicting themselves. Nope. They wanted more radical talk on the left while condemning language on the right. In fact, Dems want to impeach Trump for his words.
But as soon as Trump focused on the substance of their radical talk, they were enraged and claimed it has to stop. You see what is going on there. We all do. The truth becomes their number one enemy. And Trump represents the truth in the most dangerous form to them — a threat to their radical existence.

Today I needed to have an argument with someone and so I picked Karl Rove. Good old Karl, who really is a whiz at politics and known as the architect for Bush’s successful campaigns. I do tip my hat to his knowledge of politics. A very intelligent guy.
However, if you have to pick a fight with someone he would be the one. Because he has so much credibility. When you have a disagreement with a guru in politics, it must be real.
Anyway, though I have mentioned it before, he is setting up a nice contrast between Republicans and Democrats. He sees it one way and I think I see it a little differently in perspective. We may both want the same thing, in the end, but we come to and at it on different terms. He being the seasoned expert may have the favor. But I don’t really care, as I am determined to get the perspective right to the core.
He has lectured the same strategy several times on Fox, which he sees as a formula to winning. I don’t accept the basic premise of it. That’s where it gets hairy. Color me skeptical. I have no time-tested methodology or anything, only a sense based on what I know and have seen. That leads me to make a hypothesis and prognosis that I want to treat. He sees more a typical case. This is important and goes directly into my thesis.
Rove has a plethora of plug and play models of prescriptions from which to choose. He also has a good background in history. I am David but battling with an intellectual Goliath.
We both see the same battlegrounds of Democrats and issues driving their whole platform. They are as socialist and radical as the day is long. At least we see the same issues. But our combat tactics have to differ. He is ready to use an arsenal of resources to counter them all. Okay, I understand the reasoning. He wants to get organized and go down some type of list of Democrat issues, one by one, with an answer for each one. He wants Republicans or their spokespeople to be armed and able to tell voters what our ideas are and why they are better than Democrats’ failed ideas. An ultimate battle of ideas. Fairly basic, right?
On the face, you could say he is right. All it takes is that information and plugging it in wherever needed to explain our ideas. Forgive me here because I start seeing that as a little mundane. And in the end, it would depend on whether you can convince targeted voters that your ideas are better and right for America. It sounds a little déjà vu as well.
Wasn’t that what Paul Ryan kept saying? So we do have a case example. Did it work? Jury is still out I guess. But I remember him talking about this “better way” campaign. It is also a tedious thing of sitting down with people and requires being allowed to present your ideas to a willing audience. What could go wrong with that?
Now I promise I am not literally trying to pick apart every little thing with his plan. I’m just trying to be realistic. And today realism can cause you all sorts of heartburn. It is not as simple as it sounds. See we have to consider that target audience. So they are independents and some Democrats. We must know the environment (arena) too.
Targeted audience and arena opens up a big can of worms. And the people who we are inevitably responding to are those Democrats. It also means they are setting the terms for debate with their issues. We are then forced to debate on their terms. Sure we know what those are. But you have to know your audience too, in order to try to convince them. Basically, Democrats are now socialists. They know what they want, too. Long gone are the days Democrats didn’t know what they were, even what they were fighting for. They boldly admit being socialists, or Democratic Socialists if your like. And they are radicals, their ideas are radical. We shouldn’t have to adorn socialism petite along the way.
The logical way to look at it is you cannot go on treating the symptoms without diagnosing and addressing the disease. Pretending it does not matter is not a logical response.
So my point is that you cannot reason with radicals the same way you discuss a family vacation. By their nature they are altered to operate differently. They are hardened in the arts of radicalism. The point is you have to take into consideration who they are. David did know that much about his opponent, Goliath. He found out. And that helped determine how to fight him. It also impassioned David to fight him. I am not saying that socialists or socialism is a giant, only a big glob. Don’t underestimate the ability or capability of your opponent. They have gotten these inherently radical ideas because they are radicals.
When it comes to any interactions with them, one must remember they are radicals. Or go in with that conception anyway. Then the rules of reason that might ordinarily influence anyone else may not work on these people. They have built-in predjudices to their ideas. You aren’t dealing with an objective, even rational, person. Of course you are shooting for those you can influence or convince. Also, by nature, the other way these Democrats move is by group or mob. That is how they are influenced as well, by the wave of the mob.
Then there is the content conflict. We are fighting a mass of media propaganda at the same time. Whatever we say is likely to be turned into the next day’s sound bite against us. So if we are just going for the straight information argument, bombing them with info to make your case, it is possible. But do realize what you are up against or the message will just fall on intentionally deaf ears. When I hear stories of Russian defectors, I get a sense of what this is like. They have preconceived defenses built against your ideas. They are trained to hear things only in a certain way. It may not be code but it is in a way that fits with their ideological (in this case radical) mindset. The worst part is they have built a bias against even opening the door to you.
All this is why I find myself questioning Rove’s approach. Not because he is wrong about any of it, but because of who they really are on the other side. So at one time Karl Rove’s formula would be perfectly right because it would have been like normal politics. Today though, politics is not normal. To call it abnormal would be understating it. This is a whole different politics and relationship to them. What I am trying to say and show is that since Karl Rove has been around and involved in politics, things have changed.
It is not the same as it used to be. And what always worked before may be worthless now, unless you factor in who they are. Regular politics is not supposed to work with radicals because politics is what they were designed to hinder and overcome. Is that a fair match?
And we cannot afford to lose. This will definitely need a part 2 – sometime.

There is a great and well known song around the world. Who doesn’t like “America the Beautiful”? Its spacious skies and amber waves. Sort of reminds us what we are all about. Hard to imagine any critics of that. Pardon my poetic prose.
Contrast that with talk of the left lately. Anything condemning or putting America down seems popular to the Left. That is noting new, though the level of it and volume is.
Saturday on MSNBC I heard these lines: The goal is to “get rid of the Orange Orangutan.” That spoken by well-known Julianne Malveaux. And it didn’t get a rise or even a gasp from others. No, that passes for normal language today.
There were a lot of things I would have liked to say about Obama. So many things you just could not get away with saying in public. The blowback would be horrendous and always was, if anyone dared to demean “The One.”
Back in 2009, Alan Keyes called Barack Obama a radical communist and it sent outrage meters off the charts. Why and how was that so bad? It was true.
Contrast that with all that has been said about Trump. No comparison. Though it is not just him. Leftists roll their hatred right into an anti-American froth with no parallels. GOP Rep Joe Wilson was nearly ousted for yelling lie in the Obama’s State of the Union address. But we all got a big lecture on decorum and respect for the office.
Now they either boycott President Trump altogether or go for the shock value of calling him every name under the sun. Nothing is ‘off limits.’ No “out of bounds.” Why the change? Because there are no rules now. There is no decorum now. In fact they will even blame their own incivility on Trump.
Exhibit A: Friday evening a protest occurred at a Colorado ICE office, where protestors lowered the American flag and then raised the Mexican flag. And they mocked the America first motto. But why does it have to be America Last with these people? Why has America the Beautiful turned into America the Detestable? #LightsForLiberty ?
No, you cannot dismiss or ignore it. You can’t say it is a few. It is a wide burgeoning movement of anti-American sentiment. The point they are trying to make is totally lost on most people. It is just unbridled vitriol and hatred. And they are making it normal and cool.
When the women’s soccer team does a mockery with the American flag, no one is offended. No one really cared. One teammate at least rescued the flag being trodden under their feet. Other than that it should not have shocked anyone.
Then on Friday, congress held hearings about a problem they refused to do anything about. Shock and outrage for the “immigration” problem – an invasion, a crisis by design. America bad! Shame on the administration, shame on border patrol. Shame on the only guy trying to do something about the problem. Deny the crisis they are perpetuating.
But denial didn’t work, so now demonize everyone else over it. The problem? Congress has turned from being the Constitutional congress, into a body of elected activists. And it matters not whether they are in the majority or not. They operate the same either way.
If they want to be activists, then they don’t have to be in Congress to do that. But they want official recognition, even respect, for what they do. Tearing down history is good.
So, America the beautiful, where is the “fruited plane” and brotherhood? Obviously in the same place. Does God shed his grace on this? They’ve turned protest into the purpose.
Once “A thoroughfare of freedom beat across the wilderness!” Now, how dare a nation’s pride be glorified! We can’t allow that. Patriotism, an ugly beast, must be trodden under thy feet. Until it is beaten. No more beauty; in fact it is sick and ugly, all which has made America great. The spacious skies turned to storm clouds, from sea to shining sea. We are not justified but horrified. What inspiration is there in that? None, which is the whole idea.
There is nothing in common, no respectable past; only a glimpse of a dark future with these people. Their every word is solitude for subterfuge.
In mourning retreat:
God mend thine every flaw
Confirm thy soul in self-control
Thy liberty in law!
They no longer believe in power of the people but in the power of the sheeple.
But in a hopeful parting comment:
O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!
No doubt the author of this beautiful song, Katherine Lee Bates, will probably be next on their enemies’ ban, damn and boycott list. She exemplified something they no longer understand and cannot tolerate. Heroes’ strife be damned in their bonfire.
Maybe they could undo the American Revolution too? May all our success be fruitlessness. Oh for Patriot Dreams. But their retched thoughtfulness continues to shame America.

It’s been some time since I wrote a longer satire, but I realized nothing can be stranger fiction than what the left rolls out almost daily. As Spock would say, “fascinating.”
New York is leading the way in many areas. Just in the past six months they have upped the ante in the definition of strange.
Days ago, Cuomo signed the bill to give Trump’s NYS taxes to congress, if they ask for them. Lawmakers and the governor claimed it is not a bill of attainder for only one individual. So it applies to anyone’s tax information, which congress shall ask for.
Then on Tuesday, Cuomo was outraged by what he called a giant breach of personal privacy rights if federal government gets information on illegal aliens from NYS. He declared that cannot be allowed to happen. NY cannot give or share personal information with Immigration or any other department in Washington.
All to protect the personal privacy of illegals.
So the lesson is you only have personal privacy rights if you are an illegal “undocumented” person. But if you are a US citizen, you don’t have a right to privacy. Pound sand.
In Portland Oregon, they allow masked thugs to roam the streets assaulting and threatening people. Antifa too seem to have unwritten protections no one else has.
Cops stand down.
The same people think the federal government should subsidize abortion on demand all the way up to the date of birth. And they declare killing babies a sacred right. Law of the land.
Abolishing entire private business sectors is perfectly acceptable, even encouraged. No, the leftoids demand it. We already know de Blasio said we need to break up any corporation that “does not serve our democracy.”
The court decides the administration cannot ask the simple question “are you a citizen or not” on the census. Leftoids don’t even want us counting citizens or non-citizens. Because if you are not counting non-citizens then likewise you cannot count US citizens either.So we cannot count citizens. Trump criticized it as he had a right to:
“Can anyone really believe that as a great Country, we are not able [to] ask whether or not someone is a Citizen. Only in America!”
But shouldn’t a good explanation be that we need to know the number of US citizens?
Now do you notice any particular pattern or theme here? If you are an illegal, then you have protections no one else has. In fact you have sanctuary cities protecting you, namely because of your illegal status.
The Betsy Ross Flag is now racist. Another defining “mic-drop” moment for the left.
Capping it off, Tom Steyer announced his bid for the presidency. Impeachment is now a certified platform to run for president. How will all the fellow commies compete with that? Stay tuned…they aren’t done yet.

I believe we have an ultimate grudge-match framed in the coming election. It boils down to terms more than narrative. The lefts’ narratives are amusing but the terms are deadly.
The terms are simple. Nationalism vs, Socialism. What could be a greater feud than that?
While some people may assert that you can have nationalism with socialism, it is a distorted illusion. Their kind of socialism will have no part in nationalism. It is their enemy. After all, nationalism is what they rail against and what drives the left.
Except when Obama was president, then they had a faux nationalism. It was really socialism disguised as fake nationalism. But it was as phony as a three dollar bill. They only used it to sell their socialism. Because at least then socialism was not out of the closet. They had to pretend socialism was not what they wanted. They created a sense of nationalism.
Now, any pretense is long gone about not wanting socialism. It is all the rage, socialists are kool. Bernie just ushered in the left’s real passion, Democrats want socialism. And when do they want it? Now. Bernie is the Pied Piper of Socialism.
To a person, every one of the Democrat candidates did follow him. They all compete for who can be a pure socialist. They realize there is no better way to buy votes than promising free stuff. And no better way to bring down America than giving free stuff to everyone, even illegals. It breaks your will and breaks the government’s budget.
The Left has apparently decided something else they now like almost as much. Executive power and executive orders. That is what it will take to enact most of their pipe dreams.
You know the rule of the left: never let democracy get in the way of socialism schemes. If people don’t like it, then find a way around them. If it can’t pass in law, then find a way using fiat law. Or find a judge to enact exactly what you want. Create such a struggle between branches or the people that they cannot say no. Make it seem inevitable.
But nationalism, there really is nothing conspiratorial about that. And you cannot fool the people about what is real nationalism. They know the difference.
By the way, Happy Fourth of July!
