All part of The Plan

In a comment from the other day, Checkers suggested an underlying motivation behind the hurry-up establishment of our new national holiday that I hadn’t considered, namely:

I think we are missing the purpose of the new national holiday. This has little to do with uplifting blacks. As most of what the left does has little to do with helping them. They are a tool to be used.

I would bet good money that the next shoe to drop is the idea will be put forth that July 4th should be done away with, as it is not a “true” day of freedom as there were still slaves in the country when founded. The game here is to do away with yet another American apple pie idea and usurp it with the agenda of the other side. A complete replacement of all things American “white”.

Mark my words, give it a year before there is a bill in congress to do away with July 4th, and replace it with the Juneteenth celebration. (note, spell check did not correct juneteenth thus someone has already added it to the computer algorithm. it does spell check it to make it capitalized though, how fast is that for ya?)

Naturally, I was a bit embarrassed for poor ol’ Checkers, allowing himself to be led astray like this by such a preposterous, paranoid conspiracy theory, and I really hate to see…uhh, that is to say, I was deeply saddened by his…ummm, what I mean is…errrr, uhhhh, ummmm…

Well.

Illinois town holds Pride and Juneteenth parades, cancels July 4th celebration
The town of Evanston, Illinois, is holding Pride and Juneteenth parades during the month of June, but canceling July 4 fireworks and Independence Day festivities.

The town of Evanston, Illinois, is holding Pride and Juneteenth parades during the month of June, but canceling July 4 fireworks and Independence Day festivities.

The municipal government of Evanston had a grand announcement for its Juneteenth parade on Saturday. While the theatrical performance will be virtual, the parade will proceed in-person as scheduled.

Residents are also invited in-person to attend post-parade celebrations outdoors for “an afternoon of art, music, food and community.”

Another major parade is scheduled in Evanston on June 26 to close out Pride Month. Once again, in-person events will continue after the parade, sponsored by the government, including a night-time “candle lighting ceremony and memorial.”

However, the July 4 parade and fireworks will not go on as scheduled in Evanston.

Take a guess as to what excuse they’re using for dumping the Fourth festivies. Go on, I’ll give ya three. First two don’t count.

The decision to cancel the Independence Day events appears to be based on COVID-19 safety protocols, according to the city’s press release. The Trustees of the Evanston Fourth of July Association voted to cancel the live Fun Run, Parade, Palatine Concert Band performance and Lakefront Fireworks show on July 4, based on “concern for public health due to the unpredictability of the pandemic’s impact, vaccination rates, and in cooperation with our local authorities.”

Thereby confirming that, at this point, there’s really nothing left to celebrate on the 4th anydamnedhow. As I keep saying, until Real Americans have gotten off our collective duff and made some serious adjustments around this place, it ought to be a national day of mourning.

They’re going after the flag, too.

Lotta hassle over obsolete farm equipment.

As I previously noted, June nineteenth is also the date they executed the Rosenbergs for their treason. What’s not to like about dead Jews?

Especially since THEY are the filthy maggot swill behind most of THIS as well???

As I saw over at Liberty’s Torch, other parts of their Plan include persistently high inflation.

Gas is $3 a gallon around here now.

To be fair, I am not comparing that to the artificially produced Scamdemic Lows (hurt frackers too, hmmmm).

Instead I’ll look at the earlier $2.70 per gallon I was paying before the Scamdemic. That was bad enough. Sure, $0.30 rise from that level doesn’t sound like a lot. But is 11% from 2.70 to $3.00 and there is no indication the price will be going down soon as the economies reopen. Raw Crude is almost $72 right now. It was $60 pre-Scamdemic. That’s a 20% rise.

All of that will eventually push through our modern economy’s supply chains making 11-20% higher costs for everything we buy eventually. To make it requires energy. To get it from where it’s made to where it’s needed requires energy. To keep the lights on at the stores where it is sold takes energy. To run the aircon at the store, to keep the cash registers working, to feed the electronic inventory systems all takes energy. The cows need food to eat and producing that food requires energy and getting it to the cows requires energy. The cows must be milked. Energy. The milk needs to get to the stores. Energy. The cows need to be slaughtered and the meat butchered and then delivered to the stores. All energy intensive.

5% year over year inflation like we had May 2020 – May 2021 is going to look like good times come next May.

Of course, unless it all comes crashing down again. I can’t rule that out either, but it’s not likely the Fed and TPTB will not just attempt to pump MORE Money out and take interest rates negative if that happened.

Imagine a worst case scenario. A crashing economy with prices still rising hard.

Gas here — 87 octane, about 10% ethanol — is up 40% since Slow Joe and the Ho were put in place by the coup. I didn’t pay attention to diesel or premium gas so I don’t know about those.

Barry

About 40% around here if my recollection of the price pre-fakeChinavirus is correct. Kenny mentioned $2.70 but I recall it was closer to $2.10.

Barry

Close. Looks like in early Feb 2020 the price was about $2.20 or so in NC. My memory is of SC which is about $2.10 because I always fill up in SC when returning home from some trip or other. It went down as the market was flooded with gas – no one using it – but early Feb was before the lockdowns began.

$2.81 NC average today.

"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
