Putting the helots in their place

This benighted country is nothing more than a sick, unfunny joke.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem took aim at the Biden administration from Mount Rushmore Sunday after federal officials this year rejected her bid to host a Fourth of July fireworks show at the famed monument.

Fireworks were reintroduced at Mount Rushmore for the first time since 2009 last year under Donald Trump, but the National Park Service (NPS) denied Noem’s permit request earlier this year. The NPS cited health reasons relating to coronavirus, wildfire risks, environmental concerns, and ongoing construction at the federal landmark — which is not set to be concluded by the Fourth of July.

Noem, a Republican, filed a lawsuit challenging the NPS decision.

“After telling us they’d ‘circle back,’ the Biden Administration has not responded to our request to uphold the Memorandum Agreement between the State of South Dakota and the National Parks Service to host a safe and responsible national celebration and fireworks show,” Noem wrote.

A federal judge rejected the challenge, ruling officials were justified in their decision.

But weeks after her bid was rejected to host the Independence Day fireworks display at Mount Rushmore, the Biden administration unveiled plans this month to host a similar display at the White House.

“What a hypocrite. President @JoeBiden wants “a summer of freedom” where we “mark independence from the virus by celebrating with events across the country,” Noem tweeted on June 15. “Translation: fireworks are fine at the White House, but not at Mount Rushmore.”

Mark “independence” from TheVirusTheVirusTheVirus!!™ by…banning the Mt Rushmore fireworks display because of TheVirusTheVirusTheVirus!!™, huh? Frankly, that’s about as perfect an in-your-face and upfront confirmation of where we now stand as I can think of. All the ingredients are there:

  • The irrational, supine cowardice of the Branch Covidians being played on by FederalGovCo out of pure pettiness and spite
  • The arrogant muscle-flexing of our patently illegitimate Occupation Government
  • The trotting out of the clapped-out Covid Con yet again as a display of authority FederalGovCo doesn’t lawfully possess but wields nonetheless
  • The smug, nearly boastful show of for-me-but-not-for-thee hypocrisy so typical of these vermin

Yep, this story really has it all.

What Noem ought to do is hoist a big, far middle finger in the general direction of Mordor On The Potomac and all its orcs by announcing she’s going to throw the biggest July Fourth party she can put together anydamnedway, then hold a press conference in which she explicitly dares DC’s dimestore dictators to do something about it. In addition to being riotously funny, a challenge like that from the Gov would be a most excellent way to declare the primacy of the heretofore-abandoned Founding principle of States’ Rights as well. But I won’t be holding my breath waiting for any such thing, and neither should you.

It just goes to reinforce my own long-held conviction that there is absolutely nothing to be celebrated on the Fourth of July, other than maybe to pay our respects to the achievements of much better men than ourselves. It ought to be considered a national day of mourning, until Real Americans have reclaimed their birthright, retaken their freedom, and re-established a national government that at least somewhat resembles the one they were bequeathed. Until such time, Independence Day only amounts to just another day off work, an excuse to throw some burgers on the grill and quaff lots of beer, nothing more.

^—THIS!—^

It’s time every governor, and every citizen, with a sack started looking for every possible opportunity to deliver this very message.

Civil Disobedience by the Governors aimed towards the Illegitimate Fed Tyrants is probably the best tactic lately. I was hoping she would have the Fireworks Show anyway.

I don’t think she will. Even the best Republicans seem to have lots or words to sling but very little in the way of action.

We shall see.

Oh and anyone notice that even their local weather forecasts no longer make a big deal about the July 4th weather. They used to highlight the whole “parades, BBQ’s, graves visits and fireworks weather report”.
Now they are hardly even mentioning “the holiday weekend” weather, if they acknowledge July 4th at all. Only one morning weatherman said the words “July 4th” and “Independence Day”.

I suspect that that is what’s going to cause the crisis that leads to meltdown:

Sooner or later some Barney’s at the ATF or Feebs are going to attempt to enforce one of the Bidenreich’s gun control EOs somewhere like Missouri, and some local Sheriff is going to arrest them, the Governor there will support them, and then the Fed will attempt to bring the hammer down to teach those rubes the error of their ways.

And then it’ll all go sideways.

by announcing she’s going to throw the biggest July Fourth party 

Yep, this is what I said back a couple months or so. She should further announce the closure of any federal building in SD because they are super spreaders (of marxism) and tell all the feds to get the hell out of the state or face charges of, oh lessee, insurrection or something.

"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.

"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
