Welcome to Ye Olde Colde Furye Blogge’s shiny new open-comments thread, where y’all can have at it as you wish, on any topic you like. Do note that the official CF comments policy remains in effect here, as enumerated in the left sidebar. All new posts will appear below this one. There will be blood…

The worst is yet to come

And y’all thought Jimmeh Peanuthead’s economy was bad.

The poor economy of the 1970s can be traced not to Jimmy Carter, but to Lyndon Johnson. With the spending that the Biden administration is implementing and, even more, that it has proposed, a return to the stagflation of the 1970s may be mild in comparison to what we can expect to get from policies of the current Congress.

The same can be said of the shutting of the Keystone Pipeline and canceling of domestic drilling and oil production. These actions could have results that make the gas shortages of the 1970s pale in comparison.

There is another policy of the Biden administration that is similar to a law passed in 1965: the Hart-Celler Act. This was known as the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. This act changed dramatically the immigration policy of the United States. Our immigration policy went from one of bringing in immigrants who could contribute to the betterment of the country to one in which immigrants were chosen by where they came from.

It is similar to the fiasco that Biden created on our southern border with his reversal of President Trump’s immigration policies. The three executive orders he signed to this effect place more financial strain on the nation. With jobs going to illegals and illegals receiving benefits at taxpayer expense, there is added cost placed on our economy.

The American philosopher George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This was stated in his work, The Life of Reason: Reason in Common Sense. The political left seems to do this all the time and is quick to give the same excuse when confronted with the truth: “It didn’t work in the past because we didn’t throw enough money at it.”

We may be returning to the economy of the 1970s, but that poor economic period had its roots in the 1960s. If we are witnessing what has been compared to the 1970s, what does our future have in store for us?

Nothing good. Which brings us to tonight’s Tune Damage embed.



Guardian Angel

Run, Curtis, run.

Curtis Sliwa may be New York City’s only hope for a real people’s mayor, but his campaign is also setting the standard for authentic populism nationwide. Every 2022 and 2024 Republican hopeful should pay close attention to his campaign in the effort to take back America.

Don’t sleep in on New York’s mayoral Election Days, especially the June 22 primary. The two-man race on the Republican side features Sliwa—and that’s the only name that matters.

It’s worth knowing more about Sliwa and how his approach pertains to authentic populism.

Sliwa’s mayoral campaign rests upon his record of genuine public service, not a career in politics. His message is not new but it’s credible. His battle-ready stances against corruption, elitism, rampant crime, and overall social decay have people clamoring.

Sliwa got his jaw broken last summer by rioting and looting leftists, so he literally can feel the pain so many business owners and other law-abiding Americans are feeling. Dig a little deeper into his past, and you will find he rescued people from a burning building while on a paper delivery route at age 16.

Leading by example and keeping skin in the game are qualities that are naturally rooted in true patriots—not utopian, woke leftists. For this reason, it should be all the more embarrassing to Republican voters that the Democrats compete so closely for the mantles of populism with standouts like Bernie Sanders and AOC, who are as inauthentic as anyone could be.

 Whether it’s a race for mayor or U.S. senator, the leading themes or issues on a populist campaign inevitably will be at least a few of the following: anti-corruption, quality of life, fostering community, and of course economic reform. These all usually go hand-in-hand.

And are perennial issues in NYC.

Some folks like to slag Curt Sliwa as a publicity-hound, a right-wing thug, and/or a phony, among other things. I’ve always liked him myself, going back to the days when I listened to the great Bob Grant on WABC. Sliwa was a regular on the show, occasionally guest-hosting himself when Grant was on vacation.

A lot of people have either forgotten or never knew in the first place, but it was Curtis Sliwa who exposed Al Sharpton’s vicious rabble-rousing at Freddie’s Fashion Mart, which eventually resulted in riots, arson, and mass murder:

In another violent incident in which Sharpton was even more directly involved was a mass murder at Freddie’s Fashion Mart in Harlem. Freddie’s Fashion Mart was a clothing store owned by a Jewish businessman and located in space he rented from a black church. When the store owner attempted to expand his floor space into space which was occupied by black sub-tenant Sharpton led a series of protests at the store.

Sharpton called the owner of Freddie’s a “white interloper” and the protesters led by Sharpton shouted about the “blood-sucking Jews” and “Jew Bastards”. Sharpton and his partner went on the radio and referred to the owner of Freedie’s as a “cracker” and promised that he would be “made to suffer”.

One of Sharpton’s protesters forced his way into Freddie’s Fashion Mart and fatally shot three white people, then he shot a Pakistani immigrant to death because he “looked Jewish” and set fire to the store. A fire in which five Hispanics, a Guyanese immigrant and a black security guard (who had been referred to by the protesters as a “cracker lover”) all lost their lives.

Of course when confronted with the logically predictable consequences of his incendiary rhetoric Sharpton promptly denied any connection to the protest except to say that he had visited there once to “express his support” and to engage in discussions with “all the involved parties”. When Curtis Sliwa played tape recording of Sharpton’s venomous speeches, delivered to the picketers on more than one occasion, on his WABC radio program Sharpton responded by calling WABC “hate radio”.

Sliwa first played those tapes on Bob Grant’s show, if I remember right, blowing Sharpton’s brazen lies denying his starring role in the mayhem at Freddie’s all to hell and gone. I was listening when he did; believe me, it was a thing of beauty. Of course, Sharpton was greasy enough to ooze his way out of facing justice for his repeated exhortations to violence, and he still is. But hearing Grant and Sliwa gleefully chortling as they played TV news reports featuring Sharpton’s gradually-disintegrating fabrications originally claiming complete non-involvement, then admitting to having attended the Freddie’s demonstration “once,” or maybe “once or twice, can’t remember,” and so on was priceless just the same. Then they would play Sliwa’s tapes capturing Sharpton denouncing the “white interlopers and blood-sucking Jews” over a bullhorn, inspiring the Rush Limbaugh Show parodies hilariously lampooning him, in which Sharpton was always pontificating through a bullhorn.

The charlatan never stopped trying to miminize his role as the primary instigator:

It is noteworthy that when Al Sharpton wants to see black faces in high places in the recording industry he does not refer to them as “niggers” or “black interlopers”; he speaks of equal opportunity for blacks. But when a Jew owns a store in a part of America that Al Sharpton thinks should be off-limits to white people, then that businessman is vilified as a cracker and a white interloper. He’s saying that blacks should have business opportunities in every part of America, but white folks should stay the hell off the sacred soil of black communities. It’s a strange message coming from a man who claims to teach the lessons of Jesus.

The “drums” of the Harlem community had done their job. The word was out. One of Sharpton’s picketers forced his way into Freddy’s Fashion Mart and shouted: “I will be back to burn the Jew store down.” Before he could make good on his threat, another Sharpton protester named Abubunde Mulocko burst into the store with a loaded .38 caliber pistol and shot three white people. Then he shot a Pakistani because he mistook him for a Jew. Then he torched the store and burned alive five Hispanics, a Guyanese and a black security guard whom the protesters had vilified as a “cracker lover.”

After stirring up racial hatred with his heated rhetoric on 125th Street and broadcasting his hostility on two radio stations for months, the Reverend Al Sharpton abruptly claimed total ignorance of what his underlings had been up to. He had a sudden case of global amnesia. In his sanitized autobiography, Sharpton makes no mention of the incendiary broadcasts he and his buddy Morris Powell had made. To hear him tell it, he barely knew of the loud and vulgar protest at Freddy’s. “I visited once to support the picketers and to talk to all sides,” he says with feigned innocence. (p 268) Sharpton continues: “but after a few days, tapes of some statements made by me calling a lessee a white interloper, and then some more offensive and hateful statements made by others when I was not present, at my Saturday morning rally, were released by a right-wing media watch group to further the mayor’s reckless charges.”(p268) Mayor Giuliani had criticized Sharpton for turning the Freddy’s dispute onto a racial powder keg. If my memory serves, the “right-wing media watch group” that Sharpton refers to was just one guy with a pocket tape recorder who had gone to one of Sharpton’s rallies at the request of Curtis Sliwa, founder of the Guardian Angels. Sliwa played the tape on WABC radio in New York. Sharpton calls WABC “hate radio.”(p 141) I have heard this recording a dozen times. Sharpton did not speak the vulgarity “white interloper” in some cool detached tone of voice, he employed all the rhetorical skills he had acquired in a lifetime of preaching. He was struggling mightily to fire the crowd to action. His words, “white interloper,” sprang from his lips like a curse. His tone left no doubt: he wanted the white Jew gone from the sacred soil of Harlem.

In his own defense Sharpton says: “I was not guilty of inciting violence, but I was guilty of not upholding the standards of my speech.”(p 268) Well, spank me Mommy! Seven innocent people are dead, four other people had suffered gunshot wounds, Freddy’s Fashion Mart is a burned out shell, and the firebrand Reverend Sharpton thinks he is only guilty of sub-standard language skills.

Oh, I’m sure Sharpton thinks no such thing; deep down, this shameless race-warmonger knows full well what he’s guilty of, however little that bothers his conscience (if any) in the long, still watches of the night. What he actually thinks is that he’s a skilled enough liar to con everybody else into thinking it, that’s all. Thankfully, the ever-intrepid Curtis Sliwa was on hand to puncture that balloon forever.

That’s reason enough to like him right there, at least for me. There are others.

My favorite has always been Rudy Giuliani. He’ll never get his due. People take for granted—now, they don’t even talk about crime as being one of the top issues of stop-and-frisk, which is used to draw the crime down, not about people carrying guns and using guns—you almost never hear about that. What he had to do—the bull in the china shop—he had to go in there knowing you weren’t gonna make friends, you were gonna make a lot of enemies. And he came in with his wrecking crew, and let me tell you something, he did a lot of things that alienated a lot of people, but if he hadn’t taken all those political risks we would not be in the situation we are now. Bloomberg was able to take advantage of that and he added to it…

Now people who are enjoying all of the benefits—and I see people attacking Rudy, criticizing Rudy, I say, “Look, do you remember what it was like? Do we have to go on a retrospective?” So, I like Rudy, but they’ve all disappointed me, and you learn a lesson from this: It’s about principles, not people. People are always gonna fail you. I’ve failed many, many times in my life. But I promoted certain principles: self help. I don’t believe in government basically taking care of you form the cradle to the grave. That’s why for 34 years I’ve exported the Guardian Angels now to 17 countries, 130 cities. I believe in self-help. If you have a problem, don’t depend on government. There’s not many people in New York City who talk about that, even people now who are Republicans or conservatives, you know, they’ve sort of morphed a bit. People in New York City are very much into the government has to do it or it can’t get done.

He’s by no means perfect, of course; he has his flaws and his failings, as do we all. But New Yorkers could certainly do a lot worse than having Sliwa as mayor. Hell, they have done worse. And will again.

The “Science” vs the truth

It’s turtles lies, all the way down.

Syllogism: Dr. Tony Fauci says he is The Science…Dr. Tony Fauci lied to the nation early and often about his relationship with the Wuhan lab and his role in the development of the Covid-19 virus…therefore, The Science is a liar! Say what…?  Yet another revered institution bites the dust! At this rate, will America ever be able to get its mind right?

Let’s face it: the government has done everything wrong around the Covid-19 episode from the start, and continues to this day. For a whole year since the outbreak, The Science (Dr. Fauci) managed to evade and bury the fact that he helped fund the gain-of-function (GOF) research of a bio-weapon for China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The Science (Dr. Fauci) hid the fact that Dr. Fauci knew as early as 2012 that an Asian bat virus was in GOF development. In October, 2014, the Obama regime declared an official pause on funding for GOF research on influenza, MERS, and SARS viruses (though the Pentagon secretly kept funneling money into it). The Science (Dr. Fauci) got the official pause lifted on January 7, 2017, eleven days before Mr. Trump’s inauguration, unbeknownst to Mr. Trump. Development of the enhanced SARS Covid-19 variant disease continued.

Ordinarily, vaccines that produce a very few cases of dangerous side-effects are held back from distribution. But under the emergency declaration for Covid-19, the mRNA “vaccines” are proffered even more aggressively. Through May, 2021, The Science (Dr. Fauci) presses to “vaccinate” as many Americans as can possibly be rounded up, including people who have recovered from Covid-19 and have developed their own natural antibodies.  Lately, The Science (Dr. Fauci) has militated for children and teenagers to get “vaccinated.”

Only, now it turns out that scores of “vaccinated” young people are showing up with inflammation of the heart muscle (myocarditis), otherwise extremely rare in that demographic. Say what, plus huh, plus WTF?

Does it not seem as if The Science (Dr. Fauci) has lurched from one blunder to the next, while also withholding the truth from the public, lying about the origin of the disease, and its (his) role in the development of the “vaccines,” and now rather desperately, it seems, trying to cover its (his) ass?

What does “Joe Biden” & Co. do about The Science (Dr. Fauci) now? More and more, it (he) looks like an albatross the size of Rodan the Flying Reptile around Mr. B’s withered neck. But if they throw it (him) to the wolves, they can no longer use Mr. Trump as the whipping boy for all the damage wreaked by Covid-19 and the government’s response to it (not to mention its role in creating the goshdarn thing.)

I guess we’ll have to stand by on all that. For the moment, “Joe Biden” is overseas, dazzling the leaders of foreign lands with his charm and perspicacity. I wonder if he’s heard the new caution from the CDC that people who have been “vaccinated” should not fly in airplanes for more than four hours at a time due to the possibility of developing harmful blood clots (deep vein thrombosis) at altitude. “Joe Biden” suffered a cranial aneurysm, 1988, requiring a 13-hour brain surgery. “Joe Biden” has been vaccinated. Just sayin’.

If the lowest-common-denominator, good-enough-for-government-work mediocrity Herr Doktor Fauci is the best we can come up with to represent actual science, then I’m a diplodocus.

Update! Still think we can peacefully coexist with people like this?

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, whined to Chelsea Clinton in a new interview this week that the “phenomenal amount of hostility” that he endures is “astounding.”

“I’ve been the object myself of a phenomenal amount of hostility merely because I’m promoting what’re really fundamental simple public health principles,” Fauci said while appearing on Clinton’s podcast. “That seems astounding that that would generate a considerable degree of hostility, but it is.”

So, any of y’all want to try explaining to this witless toad the difference between “simple public health principles” and the pervasive, all-controlling fascism he’s been using the Coof dishonestly for the past year as an excuse to pimp? Or do I have to do it?

Eh, there’s no need to bother, really. Bureaucrats, “elected” junta officials, and civilian shitlibs all live in a self-created alternate “reality” that is wholly incompatible with the ACTUAL reality the rest of us inhabit. Herr Doktor Fauci’s stated puzzlement at why Real Americans might feel hostile to the likes of him is probably genuine, the only honest words he’s uttered in years.

His incurable blindness to the fundamental illegality of lockdowns, mask mandates, and all the other contra-Constitutional edicts of the past year and a half ought to confirm, to every Real American’s satisfaction, that not only is it impossible to live peaceably among he and his ilk as a free people, it’s undesirable as well. They will always constitute a serious threat to individual liberty and self-determination because that’s their nature; they simply can’t be anything else.

Updated update! Worlds, colliding (from the previous link).

Fauci said this when he was asked about how to rebuild trust in science in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and he admitted that the solution to rebuilding public trust is elusive to him.

See what I mean? Here’s a serpent who has lied, backpedaled, obfuscated, and contradicted himself so many times it’s damned near impossible to keep up with it all, yet still seems to believe that the people he wilfully deceived remain such biddable dolts that they can be convinced to trust him again nonetheless. Herr Doktor might want to acquaint himself with an old saw: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on ME. Obviously, his mama never told him that one after he was hatched.

“I don’t know the answer to your question,” Fauci said. “It’s a seemingly simple question, but a complicated answer. We’ve got to reach out to people and get them to understand that this is for their own safety, their own health and also what I refer to as communal responsibility, your responsibility to society.”

My safety and health are my own private concern, thanks, and neither your nor FederalGovCo’s business, according to the US Constitution. As for any “responsibility to society” I may bear (if any), that too is a private affair, a matter to be conducted solely between myself, the authorities involved…and absolutely no one else. WARNING: Continued intrusion, meddling, and hectoring in regards to the private affairs of Real Americans may result in their “reaching out” to get YOU to understand just what your proper role is and is NOT—from a great enough distance you’ll never even hear the explosive craack! of sudden enlightenment being sent on its way.

Real-world application of a properly-aligned sense of duty

What it looks like.

Now, onto one piece of news that I got that’s fallen by the wayside as of late. Jürgen Conings in Belgium. Now, if you haven’t heard about him, let me getcha up to speed. Jürgen Conings is a Career Corporal Belgian Special Forces type. 30 years IRL Wartime shooter experience. Sniper, all around badass. About 5 weeks ago, the whole “We’re locking you down for COVID again” was announced for Belgium AGAIN, well, he didn’t take too kindly to that and was like “The fuck you are you bullshitin’ motherfuckers!” at which point he went down, drew a metric fuckton of ‘goodies’ from the Arms room, as well as live ammo, and left a note on his bunk saying “I’m not locked in with you, you’re locked in here with me!” and left a target list of people who he was planning on perforating.

That was 5 weeks ago.

Now, I’m still friends with a former wife of one of my best friends. She’s a German Cutie who married my home boy back in the day, and after the divorce, she and I stayed friends cos he was in the wrong and a dick. She remarried a German Airborne GSG-9 type. Seems that this part hasn’t got much play but there’s a missing squad of German Troops that is running around loose too.

The word I got is that the Belgians have problems with their troops being willing to go after their now-wanted former comrade in arms. A natural position IMO. So, when it started being apparent that the Politicos were starting to feel like lunch meat and getting a might nervous about the rumbling among the troops and even high-higher, they called the EU. That’s the European Union assholes in Brussels. According to the word I got, the Belgies, well, they sorta-kinda agree about the new lockdown, and think the politicos ARE playing fuck-fuck games. So the politicos no longer trust their own troops. So they went to the EU, who went to NATO, who pulled a Squad of German Shooters to hunt this guy down. Much like the Brits did in the colonies… don’t want to go after ‘your own’? Bring in the Hessians. Kraut mercs pretty much. That made everyone happy.

Until the German Squad disappeared.

No one knows what happened. The main fear is they went rogue as well.

The KSK, (that’s the actual German SF kids) The ‘Kommando Spezialkräfte’ is run through supposedly with ‘right wing politics’ and been under a lot of investigations for Nazi bullshit. They’ve been getting fucked with unmercifully by their own politicians, to the point now that this squad vanished?

So it’s either out of a movie, and Belgian dude took out these guys like Rambo took out the sheriffs department in the first movie 

OR

The German KSK squaddies rolled out into the woods, found dude, yelled “Was ist Los Kameraden? We brought the beer!” and are now planning to do dreadful and evil things to the politicians all around.

Any bets it’s option #2?
That’s my take.  Keep fucking around, you’ll find out.

HARD

Go get ’em, brothers, and Godspeed to you all.

I gotta tell ya, folks: if this turns out to be at all accurate—and I pray that it is—it’s beyond doubt the most momentous and heartening news to come down the pike in living memory. If the world is ever to be brought back from the precipice of total disaster to which our political “leaders” have dragged us and put back to rights again, this is exactly how it starts.

All thumbs

No construction, all destruction.

The Great Replacement came to Jackson, the capital city of Mississippi. A little more than 50 years ago, Jackson was majority white. The civilization these white people was for a far different demographic than the racial group that inherited the city once white flight created a black majority.

Sustaining the infrastructure they were bequeathed via white flight (curiously, wherever white people fled to in metro Jackson, they created thriving civilizations out of the wilderness), the now nearly 90% black city of Jackson watches as the civilization regresses to the African mean.

Kersey next quotes extensively from a whole shitpile of NYT boo-hoo-hooing over the sinister racist implications of this shiftless-man-caused disaster:

Once again, Lavern Avant was spending her day scouring Mississippi’s capital city, hoping to get her hands on a basic necessity that she and many of her neighbors had gone without for weeks.

She made her newly familiar rounds, driving in and out of parking lots, picking up cases of bottled water for herself, her husband and her neighbors. This had become her new normal since mid-February, when a strong winter storm blanketed a wide swath of the state in ice and nearly collapsed the notoriously rickety municipal water system.

It was wearing her down, she said, and was “more than a mental challenge.”

The crisis, while this time protracted, is not new in Jackson, a city of about 160,000 where a majority of residents, including Ms. Avant, are Black. In Jackson, boil-water notices are common and an enduring municipal drama has played out for decades, as white flight, an eroding tax base and poor management have left the remaining residents with old and broken pipes, but without the public funding to fix them.

Mayor Chokwe Lumumba,

Oh good God.

a Democrat and African-American,

Any further questions?

has estimated that modernizing the city’s water infrastructure could cost $2 billion. Last week, he asked Gov. Tate Reeves, a Republican who is white, for $47 million to help repair the city’s damaged water system.

In an interview this week, Mr. Lumumba said he hoped the current crisis would finally push both state and city officials in the direction of a long-term solution.

He’p us, he’p us, Blue Eyed Debbils! We’s in trubbah baaaad!!

“There’s a saying that you should allow no crisis to go to waste,” he said. “It’s crises like these that really allow us to take stock of conditions of where we are as a city, where we are as a state and hopefully it allows us to build the resolve to address it.”

What you need to be taking stock of is exactly what the fuck it is about you people that leaves you wholly incapable of creating a civilization on your own more complex than mud huts, grass skirts, and obtaining meals via pulling grubworms out of a hole in the ground with a stick and eating them raw…or even just maintaining one after it’s been handed to you by Whypeepo as a total turn-key operation.

“Global Pushback Against Tyranny Has Begun”

Not a moment too soon.

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • March 20, 2021, on the 1-year anniversary of the first COVID-19 lockdown, people in more than 40 countries took to the streets to peacefully demonstrate against COVID-19 lies and tyrannical measures
  • Mainstream media have near-universally censored any news of this global demonstration. Those that did report it either understated the global nature of the event and its attendance, or misrepresented the intent of this “Worldwide Freedom Day”
  • The intent behind Worldwide Freedom Day was to tell our elected officials and unelected global leaders that we withdraw our consent to unconstitutional overreaches and attempts to strip us of our rights and freedoms, and that we will no longer submit to and cower in fear
  • The PCR test is at the heart of the COVID-19 scam. Without the PCR fraud and the asymptomatic spreader lie, the COVID-19 pandemic would have been a short-lived blip
  • Lies have been able to stand through the implementation of universal censorship of anyone who speaks truth and points out the scientific fallacies that drive the pandemic narrative. With these psychological tools, they manufactured the greatest hoax the world has ever seen

As Dr Mercola says, chances are you didn’t hear a peep from Chattel Media about any of this. But that’s only to be expected; they’re footsoldiers of the 1st Propaganda Division, more dedicated than most of the other units in The Enemy’s TOE.

International laughingstock

Pretty vacant.

G7 Is More A G6.5 With The Cognitively Challenged Biden In Attendance
The Group of Seven Summit begins Friday with the leaders of the U.S., Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Canada meeting in Great Britain through Sunday. One of those leaders, however, is not like the others. Which puts America at a disadvantage.

If readers think we’re saying that President Joe Biden is not all there, then we plead guilty. Clearly he’s not. His flubs, stumbles (both verbal and physical), empty gaze, the where-am-I pauses when he speaks in public (even with the aid of a teleprompter he has trouble following), the mangling of sentences, and his inability to recall the names the Declaration of Independence and Defense Department are signs of a man deeply in decline. He shouldn’t be allowed to run a sidewalk hot dog cart on Pennsylvania Avenue, much less be the primary occupant of that street’s most famous and important building.

Yet there he is, in Cornwall, ostensibly representing and aggressively promoting America. (Of course even in his best days of yesteryear, expecting Biden to do what’s right for his country was expecting too much.)

To be honest about it, though, even in his long-since-past “best days of yesteryear” Senile Uncle Gropey was never blessed with a surplus of either intelligence or integrity. He’s never been anything but a stupid, venal, corrupt scoundrel, a pluperfect exemplar of everything wrong with American politics. That We The People would ever allow such a disgraceful oxygen thief to bootjack his way into the White House rather than having him shot on sight should the sleazy blaggard dare to approach to within fifty yards of its outer perimeter says more about us than it does about him, really—none of it complimentary. Follows, a sampling of what the Cousins are saying about the senescent old fraud.

An unnamed conservative Brexiteer said “America should remember who their allies are,” then added that, “unfortunately” Biden is “so senile that he probably won’t remember what we tell him anyway. Unless an aide is listening I’m not sure he’s going to remember for very long.”

“This is elder abuse; the man should go. But what is just as bad is all we get from a new Biden administration, brainwashed by the left; they can trot out anything to him and he will say what he likes. It is just woke nonsense.

“We can’t be serious that this is the leader of the Western world.”

Fret not, bub; he isn’t, rest assured. If there’s one thing we should have all learned from the humiliating insult to the intelligence of the American serf class that is the “Biden administration” it’s that the FUSA is actually run by shadowy malefactors who will never come up for a vote, whose names their hapless subjects will never know, who are interested not in our confidence, our consent, or our approval, only our compliance. It’s a lead-pipe cinch that this didn’t begin in 2020, either.

Biden does whatever his behind-the-scenes handlers tell him to do, signs whatever they tell him to sign, and says whatever they tell him to say; it doesn’t matter in the least whether he actually understands what he’s doing at any given moment or not. He’s a mere figurehead, a bumbling, fumbletongued actor grotesquely miscast in a role much too big for his paltry abilities. He has no more influence on what FedralGovCo does than you, I, or any random housefly buzzing around the WH lawn does. He’ll never be allowed anywhere near the actual levers of power.

All of America’s original core principles: government of, by, and for the people; the right of the people to have a say in how they are governed via free and fair elections; elected officials as “public servants” working in close conformity with the will of their constituents, and answerable to them should they prove to be deficient in integrity, trustworthiness, or fidelity to their sworn duty; a duly-limited, well-run government operating in strict accordance with the US Constitution, a living affirmation of the Founders’ vision that all Americans can be pride of—all these noble ideals have been twisted, degraded, and abused by swine like Biden so that the government entire is now nothing more than third-rate theater, a dumbshow only a true rube would ever be taken in by.

This is the man America elected to act on the country’s behalf in international affairs. To stand up to thug nations, to nurture relationships with allies, to be the custodian of the economic interests of the U.S. Yet what the public gets is a tweeted photo of the unelected Jill Biden “prepping for the G7.”

“Elected”? Exactly how sure are you about that? How sure can any of us be? Not that it matters now; he’s what they gave us, he’s what we’re stuck with. For now, at any rate. The shape this shambolic buffoon is in, it’s anybody’s guess how much longer that might last.

Joe Biden appeared to get lost at the G7 summit on Friday.

Biden wandered off and looked lost.

“How are your meetings going in Cornwall, Mr. President?” a bystander asked.

A confused Biden turned around and said, “I beg your pardon?”

“How are your meetings going in Cornwall?” the bystander asked a second time.

“Very well,” Biden said as nurse Jill came to the rescue.

“Come on!” Jill Biden said to Joe while grabbing his hand and leading him away like a lost child.

Onlookers busted out in laughter.

Another day, another humiliation for Gropey. No sympathy from me; he’s earned every last morsel of it, and plenty more besides. Eat it, Joe.

Running on empty

Perfect.

A company called Blink Charging has found a solution to the problem of electric cars running out of electricity.

It is called gasoline.

Internally combusted.

The Miami-based company has built a “mobile charger” – which generates up to (the usual advertorial weasel wording) 9.6 kilowatts of juice by burning dead dinosaur (or algae bloom or abiotic, whatever you like) liquid juice. At peak output, it can instill up to a whole mile of range into an EV in a minute.

And it only costs $6,500!

As opposed to $3 for a gallon of gas – that instills 20-plus miles of range.

It is almost certain that Blink – the company – is the recipient of taxpayola in some form – perhaps “infrastructure” manna, raining from the heavens after being filched from the pockets of those who may not have an EV themselves but are certainly going to help fund (and recharge) them.

Even if not, someone will be charged – because no one “invests” $6,500 of their own money into a charger unless they expect to be able to charge for it, sufficiently so as to recoup their investment and then some – else it’s not an investment at all. And in that case, it cannot last because there is only so much loss that can be absorbed. A restaurant that doesn’t charge what it costs to serve the food it puts on the table will eventually not be able to put food on the table.

Putting electricity in an EV works on the same principle.

Why not just cut out the middle man? Put the $3 gallon of gas directly into the car – and forget the electricity altogether?

Because the electric car must be coddled and rationalized and supported by any means necessary, however absurd and however expensive.

Because electric cars are “the future,” as decreed by those who stand to profit from them, in terms of money forcibly extracted by government and handed over to those who manufacture EVs and their peripherals, such as gas-burning portable chargers to keep get them moving again (briefly) when they stop moving.

And actually decreed, by law. By the government, which also stands to profit from their confected existing – via the control it acquires over people’s decreased freedom of mobility, which EVs reduce.

As well as limit.

And THAT is the real point of the whole sorry scam, of course. Every time, in every instance, you don’t have to look too far or too hard to figure what the barely-hidden goal is with these festering carbuncles, as opposed to what they claim it is. Because every time, in every instance, it’s always the same: power, and control.

What if…?

As if further proof were even needed.

So let’s imagine that somehow, integrity rules the day, and both states under audit produce rock-solid proof that the election in their states was stolen; what then? Technically, nothing. Arizona had 11 electoral votes and Wisconsin had 10. Together they represent 21 electoral votes and Joe Biden was declared the winner by 74 votes. In order for anything to change there must be a difference of at least 38 votes flipped from Biden to Trump.

But let’s say even one of those states produces demonstrable proof of election fraud. At that point the Republican legislatures of other battleground states that exhibited strange activity on election night… Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan would be under a great deal of pressure to look into the integrity of their own elections. Suddenly, with an additional 52 electoral votes in play, things look a bit different.

Let’s further assume that the legislatures of Georgia and Pennsylvania determine that there was sufficient fraud in their states to flip the state’s vote to Donald Trump. With Arizona and Wisconsin, those states would bring the total to 57 electoral votes flipped from Biden to Trump, changing the totals to 249 to 289 and leaving Trump with a majority.

What then?

Guess. Go on, guess. I triple-dog dare ya. STRONG HINT: Nothing. More precisely: Nothing we don’t make happen ourselves.

Once the fraud has been demonstrated, America is going to find itself in a situation where it doesn’t appear that there is any Constitutional remedy in place. Are Americans simply supposed to acquiesce to the theft and allow the fraudulent president to be the actual president for the next three years?

It’s what The Power expects us to do, certainly. We’ll see before a whole lot longer how that works out for them.

What can be done when the Constitution doesn’t address a bastardization of the constitutional process? Does a military junta take control and put Donald Trump back in the Oval Office? Umm… No! Does the 25th Amendment somehow come into play? No, because that would not remedy the situation. Does Biden resign? Unlikely, and again, it wouldn’t remedy the situation.

A Convention of the States as outlined by Article V of the Constitution? Maybe, but that’s a long process and would likely not occur within the timeframe of the next election.

How about a shadow government? Does Donald Trump build a replica of the Oval Office at Mar-a-Lago and show the world what a real president would do in whatever circumstances the imposter president finds himself in?

Do true patriots take to the streets and use violence and intimidation to wreak havoc from sea to shining sea the way BLM and Antifa did last year, and maintain it until the Democrats capitulate?

None of those ideas is an ideal solution. An ideal solution would essentially reverse the inauguration of Joe Biden and inaugurate Donald Trump as the rightful president.

When, in this life, has there ever been an “ideal solution” to anything, pray tell? Knowing that, why would any serious, reasonable adult waste a moment of his time imagining that one might be found, in a situation as far from “ideal” as this one?

Many pundits are suggesting that Republicans should dig deep and focus on 2022, both at the local and the state level so that the GOP can take back the House and the Senate. While that’s true, it’s not sufficient because it doesn’t address the fraud in the first place.

What a laugh. It’s a fool’s hope, a pathetic and cowardly attempt to avert one’s eyes from unpleasant reality—akin, in a way, to a child stuffing his fingers in his ears, closing his eyes tight shut, and looudly singing “tra-la-la-la-la” to make the monsters under the bed go away and leave him alone. In this case, unfortunately, the monsters are all too real. Trusting that the self-same brazen mountebanks who corrupted the system in the first place will see the error of their ways, repent of their flimflammery, and make things right is worse than a waste of time.

If it’s possible to steal the presidency with impunity, what office in the nation is beyond reach? The simple answer is none, and that matters because the government has police power and once the Constitution becomes superfluous, the coercive powers of government suddenly have no limits. And for those who say that the Constitution still stands, the Constitution is nothing more than a piece of paper. It is the citizens’ loyalty to that Constitution and the system built upon it that make it work.

Annnnd bingo, there we have the hard nut of the matter. We were warned—explicitly, repeatedly, and presciently—by the Founders that dropping our guard against tyranny would bring us to this awful place. They were correct. We must hope that enough of us are worthy of their heritage to turn this dismal tide.

War Crime

Remember last night when I mentioned the Nuremberg Code?

Over 170 Houston Hospital Employees Suspended Without Pay For Refusing COVID-19 Vaccine
Houston Methodist Hospital in Texas has suspended over 170 employees for two weeks without pay, after they refused to take the COVID-19 vaccine. The suspensions come after a new May policy requiring all 26,000 workers to get full courses of either the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccines by June 7 or face termination.

The hospital says 99% of its employees – 24,947 – are fully vaccinated, however a group of 178 workers who have refused and have now been punished.

Meanwhile, 117 employees are suing the hospital, claiming that they’ve been pressured into becoming ‘human guinea pigs’.

Which they have, and which just happens to be…problematic, shall we say.

The Nuremberg Code (German: Nürnberger Kodex) is a set of research ethics principles for human experimentation created by the USA v Brandt court as one result of the Nuremberg trials at the end of the Second World War. In a review written on the 50th anniversary of the Brandt verdict, Katz writes that “a careful reading of the judgment suggests that” the authors wrote the Kodex “for the practice of human experimentation whenever it is being conducted.”

The ten points of the code were given in the section of the judges’ verdict entitled “Permissible Medical Experiments”:

  1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.

Well how about that, a violation right out of the gate, and not the only one either. Clearly, HMH has wilfully flouted both the letter and spirit of Nuremberg. But there’s another slight problem.

The Kodex has not been officially accepted as law by any nation or as official ethics guidelines by any association. In fact, the Kodex’s reference to Hippocratic duty to the individual patient and the need to provide information was not initially favored by the American Medical Association. Katz observes that the Western world initially dismissed the Nuremberg Code as a “code for barbarians, but unnecessary (or superfluous) for ordinary physicians.”

So, no chance of Nuremberg providing any meaningful protection for people being strongarmed by Fascist goons into accepting the “vaccine” over their vehement objections, then. However, that doesn’t necessary mean the Code is entirely useless. At least it’s now been unequivocally established that the HMH personnel fall into the “barbarians” category, along with all others attempting to coerce people into yielding to Official Will™. Clarity is always a good thing, particularly these foggy days.

“There’s no hiding from the Left and hoping they’ll go away”

They can damned well be MADE to go away, though. And will, y’know, have to be.

You may not be interested in politics, but politics is interested in you.

Many Americans—focused on their businesses, careers, home, and family—prefer to ignore the political battles and attendant controversy dividing our country. But neutrality is no longer an option.

Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about Americans’ love of being left alone. He called it “individualism,” and he fretted that one of the risks to our experiment in self-government was the tendency to retreat from questions concerning the public—political questions—in favor of enjoying our private lives. The risk, he recognized, was that retreating would enable subversion of the whole polity by people manipulating it for their own gain.

Sound familiar?

Our society has morphed away from anything recognizable even ten years ago. For many, politics was always something away from home, away from daily life. It was somewhere else—often relevant mostly to small things like marginal differences in a tax bill. Not anymore. A corrosive trend has developed: as some become increasingly political and demanding, the cost for others of expressing an opinion—or even ignoring the wrong activist demand—has grown intolerably high. This distorts the public debate, giving the illusion that a vocal group of ideologues is representative of the mainstream, because the mainstream has been intimidated into silence. And as more mainstream Americans find themselves in a country they don’t recognize, they are realizing that remaining apolitical was a luxury of another time.

Political fanatics take advantage of normal people who try to play it down the middle. This holds true in ordinary businesses in Middle America, in elite liberal arts colleges, and in the New York Times newsroom. Many people would rather go about their work and ignore the political battles that increasingly divide our country. But the left will not leave you this option.

In the workplace, “woke” ideologues politicize ordinary activities, conversations, and speech. They compel employers, suppliers, partners, and advertisers to bend to their demands. They are intrusive and uncompromising. Even a rejection of politics is treated as political. Two companies that took the unusual step of banning workplace politics—Coinbase and Basecamp—received sharp media backlash and had numerous employees resign, outraged that their employer would no longer indulge their activism. You will have no choice but to take a side.

All the above ought sound familiar to CF readers, from the first line to the last. After all, they’re playing my song.

The Left will keep pushing and pushing and pushing—driven by hatred and contempt; blinded by mistaken belief in their own sublime righteousness and superiority; maddened by intractable lust for unchallenged and unrestrained power—until Real Americans push back, HARD. After many years of self-deception in hopes of somehow sustaining the increasingly-threadbare illusion of comity which became more obviously unachievable with every passing day, our choices have boiled down to only two: either take off the gloves and fight the filthy bastards for real, or lie passively back and let the Fascist-Left swine have their way with us.

We don’t have to like it, and probably shouldn’t. Doesn’t matter what we want or don’t want. The fact is, The Enemy will permit no abstentions. They intend to force Real Americans into a fight to the death. They want war. They should by-God get themselves one. The only way out of this is through it. Time is running out.

The incredible arrogance of our self-proclaimed “elites”

Two that of right ought to be stunning beyond all belief, but actually…aren’t. First up:

Twitter’s chutzpah in dealing with the Nigerians speaks volumes about how it views itself on the global stage.

Openly attacking a nation’s head of state shows that Jack Dorsey views himself as the kingmaker of communications—not just in the United States, but worldwide. Jack Dorsey gets to decide who says what, and when, in the modern-day public square. That’s a hell of an ego for a grown man who wears a nose ring.

Meddling in the affairs of a sovereign nation is no small deal. It’s the type of provocation that, if carried out by another country against Nigeria, could be considered an attack on Nigeria’s sovereignty, or even a declaration of war.

But it also appears to be a fantastic litmus test for public corruption.

If Dorsey is pushing you around, you are either weak, compromised, or both. (In the case of our Republican Party, it’s both). \

For example, Twitter is also banned in China. With the exception of a few high-ranking Chinese Communist Party leaders and state propaganda outlets, nobody in the country of more than 1 billion people can use it. In other words, Nigeria and China now share the same position on Twitter.

But you won’t catch Jack Dorsey taking swipes at Chinese President Xi Jinping. He’ll never vow to allow access to his platform to Chinese citizens. He would be barking up the wrong tree. China is a serious country with a serious government that fiercely protects itself from foreign influence by the likes of Dorsey. China is indeed an authoritarian country, and it may be a bad place to live. But it doesn’t answer to international corporations, because international corporations might not have China’s best interest in mind.

In countries such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, both American allies, Twitter is heavily restricted. Those countries are also serious about enforcing their own laws and protecting their own sovereignty. They, like China, are not particularly agreeable places for politicians to engage in backdoor deals. Their governments, which have strict rules against libel and blasphemy, have the ability to control access to the site. They prosecute people who use the site to break their laws. Jack Dorsey doesn’t advocate an #OpenInternet in those countries. In fact, rather richly, Saudi Prince Al Waleed bin Talal reportedly owns more of Twitter than Dorsey himself.

Compare that to the United States, which (allegedly) has laws too. I’m not saying that China, or Saudi Arabia, or the United Arab Emirates are better places to live than the United States. In fact, our laws, as opposed to those of the aforementioned repressive regimes, let us express ourselves freely, almost without restriction.

But the United States is also a deeply corrupt country. Our leaders do not care about our laws—not even the First Amendment, perhaps our most precious law. In America, the people in charge can’t stand up to Jack Dorsey because he runs the show here. A great many politicians are beholden to him. He has bought and paid for them twice over. He has bribed them into submission under the guise of “lobbying” and PAC contributions to their election campaigns.

Nigeria, a Third World country, is actually less corrupted by the influence of Big Tech than the United States.

D’Abrosca’s closing blast of right ought to be embarrassing beyond all belief to the Vichy GOPe, but actually…won’t. That’s Number One. I can’t quite decide if Numero Dos is more aggravating, or more amusing.

Fauci Triggered: ‘If You’re Trying to Get at Me…You’re Really Attacking, Not Only Dr. Anthony Fauci, You’re Attacking Science’

Heh. “Fauci Triggered.” Okay, gotta go with “more amusing” on this one, I do believe.

No one is allowed to criticize Dr. Fauci, according to Dr. Fauci.

Fauci was visibly irritated during his appearance on MSNBC with host Chuck Todd on Wednesday.

Dr. Fauci received major backlash from Republicans and the conservative media after his emails showed he’s a liar and complete fraud.

Since his emails became public, Fauci has used his friends in the liberal media to help shield him from criticism.

Now he’s lashing out at Republicans for calling him out on his lies.

“If you are trying to get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking, not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you are attacking science,” Fauci said.

For such a scrawny, slope-shouldered little dweeby, he sure does have himself a hefty pair of solid-brass ones swingin’, don’t he? Apparently, the folks at the Bee are thinking along somewhat similar lines, graciously providing Herr Doktor with a masculinizing makeover free of charge.

‘I Don’t Study Science, I AM The Science,’ Growls Grizzled, Bald Dr. Fauci To Reporters

ButchFauci.jpg

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Dr. Fauci went off on reporters this week in a press conference after being questioned on all the positions he has flip-flopped on over the last year.

“Did you make a mistake, Dr. Fauci?” asked one reporter. “Maybe you just made a mistake in the science. That happens sometimes, right?”
Fauci, who was now sporting a goatee and shaved head, narrowed his eyes and growled at the reporters.

“Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make in a year? Even if I told you, you wouldn’t believe it! Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going in to work? A network of laboratories big enough to be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. No, you CLEARLY don’t know who you’re talking to here,” yelled Fauci angrily.

The reporters just sat there in stunned silence.

Heh. Wonder if Dr Fauntleroy also changed his first name to Butch? Or maybe Spike?

Life in a Red Army

Any patriotic American interested in a career in the US military damned well better reconsider. Any patriotic American already in should get the hell out, by any conceivable means.

EXCLUSIVE: Biden’s Military Puts West Point Cadets in Solitary Confinement If They Refuse COVID Vaccine
Military cadets at West Point Academy who refuse to take one of the controversial COVID vaccines are being put in solitary confinement, with more stringent restrictions than those who tested positive for the virus.

At West Point Military Academy, a number of cadets are currently rebelling against the push from the Biden administration and military higher-ups to take one of the controversial COVID-19 vaccines. 700 cadets who initially refused the vaccine were brought together into a meeting room, and were briefed as to the benefits of the vaccine. The number of cadets has now dwindled significantly after allegations of daily pressure by “senior officials” at the school, and rumors of reductions of leave. Some cadets relented and received the vaccine, while many left West Point due to the pressure.

Those who still refuse to take the vaccine are forced to wear masks everywhere, marking them out from everybody else who is vaccinated. A number of parents of those holdouts have now organized legal counsel on behalf of their children, with CDMedia reporting that they are “banding together to fight this perceived criminal behavior by those in power over their children.

An anonymous whistleblower, whose identity National File is protecting, gave a breakdown of the current restrictions that West Point cadets who refuse to take the COVID vaccine have to face. For those cadets returning for summer programs, they will have their two week leave shortened to one, as they have to spend 7 days in a quarantine that amounts to serious solitary confinement. The cadets are locked up for 23 hours each day in one room, and are only allowed out for one hour to walk or run outside.

Infuriating, intolerable, and probably a violation of the Geneva Convention (or Nuremberg Code, as Liberty Daily has it; more on that later, perhaps—M). Not that anybody in our rogue Occupation Government would give a damn about that last, of course. I’ll put the most troubling aspect in bold:

West Point allegedly plans to round up all the cadets who are refusing the vaccine and transfer them into all one company or platoon based on how many they’re are. At the time of writing, around 50 cadets have not backed down. The whistleblower said this would likely be better for them, as they would not be around other troops who derogatorily shout at them, calling them “anti-vaxxers,” and instead would be with those who stand with them. “They’re being treated like criminals,” the whistleblower added. “They’re trying to protect other people’s rights and their rights are being compromised.”

Absolutely disgusting. But with this the writing is on the wall, not just for those unjustly-persecuted cadets but for all of us. I repeat: any remaining Heritage American soldier better get out NOW. Don’t wait until they come for you as well, as they are surely going to; at that point it’s already too late, and your fate is out of your hands. Leave the disintegrating USSA to “defend” itself with the feeble, ineffectual, PC-approved army of unqualified and poorly-trained defectives, weaklings, and sissy-Marys it seems to prefer, and so richly deserves. America’s real warriors will soon have far more important battles to fight anyhow.

““What a time to be alive! If we lose America, shame on us

Another lightbulb goes on.

Anthony Braxton is a composer and multi-instrumentalist who, over the past fifty years, has written hundreds of jazz, classical, and unclassifiable avant-garde musical works, along with operas and innovative combinations of improvised, pre-composed, and recorded music. The fact that he is not a household name in America today is one of the signs that our culture does not recognize its true heroes. However, despite being a towering figure in a musical and cultural context that is dominated by the far-Left, Braxton, a black American who is now 76, in an interview Friday expressed his unabashed love for America and his deep consternation over the forces that are now endeavoring to destroy it. It took courage and a willingness to swim against the tide – but for half a century, Braxton has shown with his fiercely uncompromising music that he is willing and able to do that.

In the interview at the Grammy Awards website, Braxton says: “ For me, I’m just a country boy. [At this point, the Grammy interviewer adds the notation that Braxton’s “voice cracks with emotion.”] I’m a lucky guy to be born an American citizen. When I think about all the great music that’s happening—especially the music that’s come from Americans—again, I can only just bow to the Creator.”

Speaking about his forthcoming release, the massive 13-disc Quartet (Standards) 2020, which features Braxton on various saxophones playing 67 classic jazz songs, Braxton says: “What I’ve tried to do every decade is a project from the American Songbook. From the repertoire of the great American people, we take everything for granted. But, actually, in America, we have so much. We have options on so many different levels. There are so many different kinds of musics. We are so lucky, but of course, not everyone is able to recognize how fortunate we are, because it’s all around us all the time.”

This leads the master musician into an extraordinary paean to this country, and a criticism of current trends: “There is a separation between real America and what is being reported about our great country. More and more, there is an effort to teach our young people that America has not been an agent of something positive, but rather, America has been an agent of something that is negative.” He adds: “I respect everyone’s viewpoint, but I would say this. In my opinion, the United States of America is one of the greatest countries that has ever happened to humanity. I think the men and women of America are some of the best people on this planet. But every day, I look at the internet—I gave up television and the radio years ago—and I’m reading about a perspective that is outrageous.”

 After naming some of the composers, musicians, and others who have influenced him and get too little attention, Braxton says: “So, we watch the ascension of the great nation of China while, at the same time, our country is sinking because many of our young people are not being taught about what and who we really are as Americans….Unless change happens, we will have no way to avoid a cataclysmic experience.”

Braxton brushes aside the idea that there is something intrinsically wrong with this country: “There’s always room for improvement, but I’m not interested in utopia. No heaven, no paradise. Give me America! There are good people, so-called bad people, people on the left, people on the right.” He even rejects the Left’s current revision of American history: “There are complex forces in the air that are very separate from what one would have thought. The majority of the American people have been moving forward on the issue of slavery from the beginning. The whole concept of free states and slave states demonstrated immediately that there was opposition to slavery….In America, there’s always been a movement to challenge those ideas. But you would not know that today!”

Someone, Braxton says, is behind this movement toward disunity: “Certain sectors have been brought in to create separatism that didn’t really exist in the same way that we are experiencing it now. It’s very fashionable to be racist against white Americans, especially white men….What I’m saying is that someone made the decision to promote that vibration and put it in a different position.”

Believe it or not, there’s more yet from this very wise jazzman at the link. Never having been interested in modern jazz, I’m not at all familiar with Braxton. But after this, he’s one hundred percent a-okay in my book.

The peasants are revolting!

Tax revolting, that is.

Fells Point businesses write letter to city demanding municipal services be restored
More than three dozen Fells Point business owners have sent a letter to Baltimore leadership including Mayor Brandon Scott, City Council President Nick Mosby, Councilman Zeke Cohen, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby and Police Commissioner Michael Harrison.

“What is happening in our front yard — the chaos and lawlessness that escalated this weekend into another night of tragic, unspeakable gun violence — has been going on for far too long,” a portion of the letter says.

The letter demands that city leaders restore “basic and essential municipal services” including trach pickup, enforcement of traffic and parking laws through tickets and towing, stopping illegal open-air alcohol and drug sales and empowerment of police to responsibly do their jobs.

The business owners threaten to withhold tax and permit payments, placing those funds into an escrow account, if the city doesn’t respond to their request.

in the past, I would usually say something snarky about who might have voted those same mayors, councilmen, and other civic “leaders” into office, especially in the Democrat-run urban shitholes. But after the shenanigans of the 2020 “election” there’s no way of knowing if ANY of these people, not just in Baltimo’ but all over the damned country, were actually voted in or not.

Update! Not really related, but apropos that last line above, kinda-sorta: People Fleeing Collapsing Economies of Blue States Advise Those Who Remain: ‘Start Making Better Decisions on Who You Vote For’. Always sound advice, which those to whom it most applies will almost certainly ignore, if recent history is any guide.

Legitimate, and…that other thing

Y’know, what the FUSA now is.

Readers may wonder why I keep returning to the theme of legitimacy. The reason is simple: legitimacy is the ground on which Fourth Generation war is fought. It is, above all, a contest for legitimacy, and winning (or losing) is measured by gains or losses in legitimacy. Fourth Generation war on our own soil is by far the greatest threat this country faces, and as the legitimacy of the government, and even more of the state itself, wains, Fourth Generation war spreads and intensifies.

From this perspective, barometers of legitimacy–anything that helps us measure the rise or fall of the legitimacy of the current order of things–are earnestly to be sought. I can identify at least three. The first is widely recognized: opinion polls that ask Americans how much trust they have in various institutions. These include the Presidency, Congress, the courts, and, perhaps most important, the integrity of the electoral process. As I noted in a previous column, the latter is the equivalent of a claimant to a throne having (or lacking) royal blood.  Nothing else in the political system is as important for legitimacy. For decades, polls have shown a downward trend in Americans’ trust of all these institutions. Since the 2020 election, distrust of the electoral process has spiked, not surprisingly given the abandonment of long-standing rules designed to prevent vote fraud.

Not as much as it really should have, in my estimation. Then again, that must be expected when fully half the population is content to ignore all things political and just live their lives. Then again again, though, the ability to disregard politics without adverse personal consequences is a luxury available only to those who live in a more or less free, prosperous, and stable nation—all of which conditions look like they’re beginning to falter as the Auld Empire lapses gradually, then all at once, into the final stages. As the sun sets once and for all on America That Was, those who hadn’t previously troubled themselves to pay attention to politics will learn to their great dismay that, to adapt Trotsky’s adage, you may not be interested in politics, but politics is interested in YOU.

In all of these barometers we can read the change in political weather most easily if we compare what is happening now to life in America’s last normal decade, the 1950s. President Eisenhower was widely popular. Congress did not top anyone’s list of most trusted institutions, but ordinary Americans did not think they had to invade it to make their voices heard. The Warren court was disliked and distrusted by many conservatives, for good reason, but the problem was Warren, not the court itself. Everyone knew vote counting in some big cities might be crooked, but elsewhere the process was trusted. As to vaccines, when the polio vaccine became available virtually every kid in the country took it, because mom and dad told them to. And gun violence was rare, beyond mobsters killing each other. The government and the state were accepted as legitimate by the vast majority of Americans.

No more. The future looks grimmer still, because no one in the establishment will consider for a moment how their actions affect legitimacy. Add in the coming debt crisis and inflation and it begins to look a lot like Weimar. As was true then, what replaces the current dysfunctional mess will come from the right, not the left.

One can only hope.

Flinging some back at ’em

The Bee jumps salty with the shitlib propagandists at the scurrilous NYT.

Re: Demand for Retraction of New York Times Article by Mike Isaac

Dear Ms. Brayton: We represent the Babylon Bee in this matter and write on its behalf. Please direct any related correspondence to the undersigned.

As you should be aware, Mike Isaac, a reporter at the New York Times, authored a defamatory article in which he stated:

Facebook often dealt with far-right misinformation sites that used “satire” claims to protect their presence on the platform, Mr. Brooking said. For example, The Babylon Bee, a rightleaning site, sometimes trafficked in misinformation under the guise of satire.

This article was published by the New York Times. After its publication, the Babylon Bee, in an effort to protect its business, character and reputation against such defamatory attack, made an online post describing Mr. Isaac’s false and defamatory assertions made in his article. Though this same article was “updated” by Mr. Isaac thereafter, the update remains defamatory because it nevertheless maintains that the Babylon Bee is a “far-right misinformation site[] that use[s] ‘satire’ claims to protect their presence on the [Facebook] platform.”

Both versions of this article constitute defamation by libel, libel per se, and the tortious interference with business and contractual relations. As to the original version of your article, to ostensibly support its casted aspersions, it ironically links to another New York Times article from October 11, 2020 which is essentially a profile piece about the Babylon Bee being a legitimate satire website, and it contains no mention of “misinformation” whatsoever.

The “updated” version is no better because it names only the Babylon Bee as a purported far-right misinformation site in its discussion about sites which label themselves as satirical. Further, it insinuates that the Babylon Bee “has feuded with Facebook and the fact-checking site Snopes over whether site published misinformation or satire.” Yet, and as you should know, the Babylon Bee at that time was not feuding with Snopes as to whether it publishes satire or misinformation. To the contrary, at the time of your “update”, Snopes had already retracted any such insinuations with an editor’s note saying it was never their intent to call into question the Babylon Bee’s motives or legitimacy. In other words, Snopes denies that it ever intended to ascribe any such motives to the Babylon Bee, and therefore it is entirely misleading and malicious for you to characterize Snopes’ retraction as constituting a “feud”, for Snopes never stood by, nor does it stand by now, the claim that the Babylon Bee is a misinformation website as opposed to a satirical one. Further, as to Facebook, Facebook has actually issued a written apology to the Babylon Bee for mistakenly characterizing its content as “false news” instead of satire, and thus there is no “feud” with Facebook either.

Therefore, the Babylon Bee demands that the New York Times immediately publish a full and complete retraction of all versions of the above described article. Failure to do so will result in further damages to the Babylon Bee, which hereby reserves all of its rights to bring a lawsuit in this matter.

Govern yourselves accordingly.

Regards,
NASON, YEAGER, GERSON, HARRIS & FUMERO, P.A.

And if this doesn’t work, the boys at the Bee can always just shoot the sorry bastards. Sooner or later it’s gonna come down to that anyway.

No “need”

Answering the wrong question.

Why I Need an AR-15

Any time someone asks why anyone would “need” an AR, or any other firearm, the only proper way to respond is: Because fuck you, that’s why. If your interlocuter persists, the correct followup is: Mind your own fucking business, asshole. The next step is to ostentatiously pull the charging lever back and put the weapon into battery, all with the fiercest glare on your face you can muster.

The idea of anybody “needing” anydamnedthing at all is the ugly knock-on effect of letting the Constitution slip slowly down the drain and away. In a nation with a 2A in force and functioning, if questioned about “why you need” an AR, AK, or what have you, the only argument you need to make is Because I want one, that’s fucking well why. “Need” is completely beside the point, or it oughta be.

Because fuck you, that’s why. Full stop, end of story, get on with your busy day. A more polite way to put it:

I don’t need an AR-15 for hunting: It’s not even legal to take a deer with one in my state—the caliber is too small. I also don’t need an AR-15 for self-defense, though I’d want to have one if someone broke into my house. And I certainly don’t need one just because it’s a beautiful piece of engineering. I need an AR-15 because the government doesn’t want me to have one.

There are only two forms of government: One where the people are afraid of the government, and one where the government is afraid of the people. Whoever has the weapons is the ruling class, and there is only one case in all history, only in America, that the ruling class has actually been the common man.

Every action taken by the federal government has one purpose in mind: To protect the government from its citizens by transferring power from those citizens to the government. It is a striking and horrifying fact that, in this eternal quest, criminals and the government are in perfect alignment. Criminal acts of a certain magnitude are necessary in order to make emergency government measures plausible.

The real problem is that a government with a monopoly on force might do anything. They might respond to your home-schooling plan by confiscating your children, as happened in Germany. They might jail you for making an offensive joke on your Facebook page, as happened in Britain. They might use a pandemic to force you to close your business indefinitely, as happened in New York. A man disarmed by his government is not a citizen—he’s a subject.

The question regarding dangerous weapons is not whether it’s safe for citizens to own them, but whether—or why—we might consider it safe for the government to own them. When the FBI descended on Waco, they managed to kill more people in one day than the most prolific serial killer they ever caught had killed in his whole career. The Branch Davidians at Waco were actually gun dealers and were well-armed, but of course the FBI brought a tank. The FBI should not have had a tank to bring.

The current administration in Washington, D.C. is not elected and is not legitimate. As if confirming this fact, they’ve surrounded themselves with barbed wire and soldiers carrying machine guns. In so doing they implicitly acknowledge the danger posed—to them—by an armed and angry population. An AR-15 is not just a tool of last resort: It is a declaration that the last resort exists, a reminder that there are outer limits to the abuse of power.

Only if those limits are enforced. It is in the nature of all government that, eventually, their encroachments will expand until the people must choose: either they’re willing to defend their rights by force of arms, or forfeit them until such time as they are. Liberties unclaimed are liberties undefended; liberties undefended are liberties lost, and “last resorts” that are voluntarily abandoned are last resorts without teeth, and therefore do not effectively exist…except as the posturing, pointless machismo of slaves.

Gems from a rich vein

In responding to a comment of Barry’s, I used one of my best-loved old Wodehouse quotes. Naturally, that got me to looking around for more of that good, good stuff, which as always I can’t resist sharing with y’all.

1. “It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.”
(from The Man Upstairs and Other Stories)

2. “I could see that, if not actually disgruntled, he was far from being gruntled.”
(from The Code of the Woosters)

3. “There are moments, Jeeves, when one asks oneself, ‘Do trousers matter?’”
“The mood will pass, sir.”
(from The Code of the Woosters)

4. “Well, there it is. That’s Jeeves. Where others merely smite the brow and clutch the hair, he acts. Napoleon was the same.”
(from Joy in the Morning)

5. “I’m not absolutely certain of the facts, but I rather fancy it’s Shakespeare who says that it’s always just when a fellow is feeling particularly braced with things in general that Fate sneaks up behind him with the bit of lead piping.”
(from the short story Jeeves and the Unbidden Guest)

10. “It isn’t often that Aunt Dahlia lets her angry passions rise, but when she does, strong men climb trees and pull them up after them.”
(from Right Ho, Jeeves)

13. “Love is a delicate plant that needs constant tending and nurturing, and this cannot be done by snorting at the adored object like a gas explosion and calling her friends lice.”
(from Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit)

14. “An apple a day, if well aimed, keeps the doctor away.”
(from Carry on, Jeeves)

15. “Into the face of the young man who sat on the terrace of the Hotel Magnifique at Cannes there had crept a look of furtive shame, the shifty hangdog look which announces that an Englishman is about to speak French.”
(from The Luck of the Bodkins)

16. “You’re one of those guys who can make a party just by leaving it. It’s a great gift.”
(from The Girl in Blue)

22. “For an author Jerry Vail was rather nice-looking, most authors, as is widely known, resembling in appearance the more degraded types of fish, unless they look like birds, when they could pass as vultures and no questions asked.”
(from Pigs Have Wings)

23. “It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn’t.”
(from Ring for Jeeves)

26. “He wore the unmistakable look of a man about to be present at a row between women, and only a wet cat in a strange backyard bears itself with less jauntiness than a man faced by such a prospect.”
(from Piccadilly Jim)

28. “Every day you seem to know less and less about more and more.”

47. “Prismatic is the only word for those frightful tweeds and, oddly enough, the spectacle of them had the effect of steadying my nerves. They gave me the feeling that nothing mattered.”
(from The Code of the Woosters)

58. “He had the look of one who had drunk the cup of life and found a dead beetle at the bottom.”

60. “She looked as if she had been poured into her clothes and had forgotten to say ‘when’.”
(from The Inimitable Jeeves)

61. “I always advise people never to give advice.”

73. “The drowsy stillness of the afternoon was shattered by what sounded to his strained senses like G.K. Chesterton falling on a sheet of tin.”

I’ve commended PG Wodehouse to CF readers’s attention here many times over the years, thereby learning to my mild surprise that a lot of you folks are also fans yourselves. I consider him one of the most gifted writers ever; he’s been right at the top of my personal-favorites list since the day my Aunt Ruth loaned me her copy of Laughing Gas and I ripped through it in a day, laughing myself silly all the way through it. I was only nine or ten years old at the time, and had never been to Old Blighty at all, much less the 20’s-era Blighty in which much of PG’s finest work is set. I was wholly innocent of any association with, or personal knowledge of, the habits and pursuits of England’s idle-aristocrat class who populate his books—a lack of familiarity which assumably would sabotage my ability to find anything I could relate to or give a damn about in his writing. But somehow Wodehouse really hit me where I lived just the same, and over the years I’ve gobbled his stuff up like a kid eating candy, all of it I could possibly get.

I think I may still have that old copy of Laughing Gas around here someplace, battered and shopworn though it now is after so many decades of re-reading, travel, changes of address, etc. Aunt Ruth never asked for it back, although I offered to bring it over to her many times. I sure hope I still have it, anyway. Ruth is gone now, and the book would make a perfect memento of the gift she gave her young nephew when she introduced me to a writer whose acquaintance I’ve cherished my entire life.

If you haven’t read him before and would like to give him a try, Project Gutenburg has most of PG Wodehouse’s catalog available for free download, bless them. I have almost all of ’em on my phone; if you need an eBook reader, Moon Reader (also available free) is the one I use, and it’s top-notch. Be warned: Wodehouse isn’t everyone’s cup of Earl Grey. No matter what you may expect, Wodehouse will still surprise you. Some readers find his characters and the world in which they live too alien or archaic, while others simply don’t know what to make of him at all. But for those of us who find ourselves at home in his world, Wodehouse is literally incomparable; there’s never been anyone else quite like him, and never will be again.

A EUroweenie who gets it

I’m doing him an injustice, actually. He doesn’t sound the slightest bit EUroweenie-ish to me.

For the most part, the Dutch are just as leftist and politically correct as any other Europeans. However, perhaps the Dutch have a teeny bit of DNA left that traces back to the 17th century, when Holland, only recently released from Hapsburg rule, was the freest country in Europe. In a time of tremendous religious schisms and fighting, the Dutch managed to be a tolerant society. Politician Thierry Baudet, in a viral video, seems to have harked back to that time when he warned his fellow Nederlanders that their response to COVID not only was a gross overreaction, but also put in place a template for future assaults on liberty.

Politically, Baudet is a conservative. He would like the Netherlands to withdraw from the E.U. and objects to unskilled immigration into Holland (just as Donald Trump objected to the unlimited flow of unskilled legal and illegal aliens into America). While Baudet is critical of Islam, he would not go as far as Geert Wilders would, since the latter advocates for banning the Koran, something that’s inconsistent with Holland’s historically liberal philosophy. Baudet also believes that cultural Marxism is eating away at the fabric of Dutch society.

In other words, Baudet is close to American conservatism in his views, which is probably why we conservatives find his video so darn good.

In said vid, Baudet says a real mouthful:

I hope there will be a moment that we wake up. That we will realize this is a collective psychosis. That the locking down of the entire country, half the world for 1.5 years because of a flu variety is insane. That walking around with those silly useless masks is insanity. That we conform ourselves to those completely senseless distancing rules. That we see that our businesses, our social lives have been destroyed. That we have held back effective primary medicines such as Ivermectin, only to give those experimental injections the status of “approved vaccine” as soon as we could.

That we now ramble on about how ‘the infections are decreasing,’ when the exact same happened last year – as it does every year. And that it will happen against as autumn arrives and new infections occur. And now we pretend it happens because of COVID-19, all the while that the thing that we used to call the ‘flu’ has completely disappeared.

But most importantly, I hope that we realize that with the hysteria about this Chinese flu as the pretext, an entire infrastructure has been built, an infrastructure that can be used again at any moment, due to any occurrence. Lockdowns, masks, social distancing, no more traveling, no handshakes, ridiculous experimental jabs.

This COVID phase has been a practice to train obedience. Our parliament and the Rutte regime have passed this training with grace. Congratulations. Klaus Schwab [promoter of the “Great Reset”] will be proud of you. The globalist plans can be carried out – and the next step towards mass surveillance and total control can be taken.

You know things are bad when such simple, self-evident, commonsensical truths sound radical. In a sane world, the general response to this would be “well, no shit Sherlock” rather than shrieks of “paranoid conspiracy theory!” and “right-wing extremist!” But, well, here we all are.

Andrea refers to Baudet as “a politician,” which I felt was somewhat light on detail. So I looked this fine fella up.

Thierry Henri Philippe Baudet (born 28 January 1983) is a Dutch politician, academic and author. He is the founder and leader of Forum for Democracy (FVD), and has been a member of the House of Representatives since 2017. He also serves as the party’s parliamentary leader. He is a controversial politician due to his political views.

Well, of COURSE he is. He’s pro-liberty, pro-individual rights, pro-border security, and anti-commie. You don’t get much more controversial than that.

Baudet is a national conservative and Eurosceptic, advocating for both Netherlands’ exit from the European Union and its eventual dissolution. He is against unskilled immigration into the Netherlands. In a speech he spoke about immigration causing a homeopathic dilution of the Dutch culture and in an interview he said he wants to preserve the native cultures and ethnicities of Europe as they are. He is opposed to Ukraine joining the European Union. Forum for Democracy set up the 2016 Dutch Ukraine–European Union Association Agreement referendum with the GeenStijl website and the Burgercomité EU association, in which Baudet voted no.

Baudet has a strong opinion on arts, the topic of his book Oikofobie, and considers non-Western art and Western post-1900 modernism in visual arts inferior to Western Realism, encourages education and programmation of tonal music opposed to atonal music and dislikes modern post-1950 architecture. In reaction to this, Musicologist Yuri Landman warned Baudet for approaching the concept of degenerate art with his conservative criticism.

MY GOD, the man is LITERALLY HITLER!!!™

Baudet is critical of Islam and has expressed concern about both high levels and lack of assimilation of migrants from Islamic societies. He has stated his disagreement with the proposals made by fellow Dutch politician Geert Wilders to ban copies of the Koran. Meanwhile, he also praised Wilders as someone who “has put on the agenda the significant problem that we have with radical Islam in our time and Muslim immigration.” Baudet has called for Islamic schools in the Netherlands to sign up with Western values. He has criticised both Dutch and wider European handling of immigration and assimilation. During the 2017 Dutch general election Baudet was one of the few Dutch politicians who said he would form a coalition with Wilders’ Party for Freedom. Baudet has also expressed admiration for Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn and both ideological and personality comparisons between the two men have been made by both Dutch and foreign media.

Okay, I take it back. Clearly, he is the Antichrist.

Wikishitlibped(ophil)ia goes on to say that Baudet “has also allegedly made anti-semitic comments,” which I’ll take to mean that he didn’t, whilst mulling over why any shitlib would feel particularly bothered by it if he had. Who knows, he could have at that, which I wouldn’t be noways cool with myself. But he’s such a rara avis in Europe these days that even someone who finds rabid (((JOOOO!!))) hate as tiresome and off-putting as I do might be inclined to at least consider letting him slide on it for the nonce, in the hope that his view would mature. As far as I can see right now I must say that, overall, I like the cut of his jib, and wish we had more like him.

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber
