Okay, just gonna come right out and make it official: this woman is my new hero.
Oh my God. I think I just came in my pants a little.
Singer Nicki Minaj is mad. She’s so mad she’s posting phone numbers and screen captures of conversations with reporters trying to get the scoop on her family members in Trinidad. Some of her millions of fans have taken it on themselves to harass the reporters as a result.
It all started earlier in the week when Minaj expressed her hesitancy over the Covid-19 injections. She told a story about a friend of her cousin in Trinidad who had a very bad experience following his jabs
Read the rest of it; it’s absolutely scrumptious. If this wonderful story doesn’t give you the warm fuzzies, I just don’t know what would. It’s about goddamned time SOMEBODY started throwing their bullshit right back in their pinched, sallow faces. I want to see much, much more of this sort of thing, and I mean NOW. Doxxing; torchlight protest marches right up to the very doorsteps of their private homes; all and every flavor of monkeywrenching, sabotage, and interference; public shaming and mockery; these and other stratagems must ALL be on the table for us as well as them, civility and forebearance be damned.
Our squeamishness about adopting the Enemy’s methods to be turned against him—the pious attitude that we are somehow too upright, too moral, too good to embrace the “dirty pool” tactics that have proved so very effective against us—simply must END. The long insistence on “taking the high road” has been our undoing. Time to try something else, something that might actually work. If we can’t overcome the blind Fauntleroyism which holds that prissy, effete high-mindedness is weapon enough to allow us to triumph in the gutter knife-fight the Left has been fighting all along, we are surely lost.
If you don’t believe that there can never be ANY measure too harsh, too distasteful or “unfair,” to be used in the eternal struggle to preserve liberty, then you’ve already been defeated, and your doom is sealed. When Goldwater famously proclaimed that “Moderation in defense of liberty is no virtue; extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice,” the Left’s reaction was frenzied, almost rabid—NOT because he was wrong, but because he was RIGHT. The frothing mania of Leftist condemnation reflects their abject terror that Goldwater’s flat, reasonable, and perfectly correct statement—a statement that Americans of the Founding era would have regarded not as the wild-eyed ravings of a madman, but as no more than obvious, and quite unremarkable—might resonate deeply with Normals in numbers too great for them to overcome.
Remember, folks, THESE are the people we let steal our country from us.
No, really, I’m serious. THESE people.
It’s driving me insane. My wife and I have been married for a few years, and throughout our marriage we’ve always been monogamous. About 6 months ago she mentioned the idea of bringing in another man into the relationship to spice things up. I hesitantly agreed. We found a guy on Craigslist. It was actually pretty fun at first. Liberating, even. The three of us often had dinner together, watched movies, played games, etc. The sexual stuff stayed separate (although admittingly I feel like I started getting less…that’s outside the scope of this post though).
Fast forward to Mid-November. I make a joke at the dinner table about how finally the fucking cheeto is going to be out of office. The new boyfriend, who’s always been nice to me, told me to “shut the fuck up you fucking liberal pussy”. I was taking aback by his sudden anger. He’s much larger than me so I admittedly just looked at my wife as a plea for help. She just continued eating trying to act like nothing was going on.
Now, I don’t claim to be an expert or anything, not at all. But I’m thinking that right there just might have been the exact moment you lost her.
I did not know he was a Trump supporter. He even made a joke about him in the past, but he proceeded to tell me that he voted for him.
Long story short, after he had left for the night, I told the wife that we can’t associate with him (for obvious reasons). This is where it got bad. She defended HIM and told ME that I was being DISRESPECTFUL for not understanding that some people have different political views!!! I kept insisting that he’s a white supremacist and a racist and she said he wasn’t. My wife has always been very liberal and anti-trump just like me but now she’s defending the fucker. I told her we were done if she doesn’t stop seeing him…after a few days of fighting, and her continuously saying things would be fine, I packed up and left, thinking she’d finally comply.
Now, I’ve driven by the house a few times and his pickup truck is always parked there. In fact, I THINK HE FUCKING MOVED IN.
what the FUCK do I do now?
I see but one way out of this for you, pal: kill yourself. Do not waste another moment. Kill your wife, kill your wife’s bull, and then kill yourself. Do it now—right the fuck now. There MUST be an absolute bloodbath at your house, immediately, without further delay. This little circlejerk of yours is being conducted by a passel of miserable, useless oxygen thieves, and the fact is that you all have simply got to GO. Make the world a better place, for yourselves and for everybody else, in the only way you can or ever will do: by LEAVING it.
Via Ace, who guffaws in this pathetic, contemptible little queef’s anguished face thusly:
Note this isn’t his ex-wife. No, this is his current wife, who he lives with.
Or lived with, at least. Until she started banging this Trump supporter.
He’s in a polyamorous relationship. He lets his wife sleep with other men.
And he’s mad about two things:
1, His wife’s new boyfriend voted for Trump, and
2, He’s sick of all of his wife’s boyfriends’ drinking buddies calling him a cvck!
Okay, I made up that last one, but you know that must bother him.
If the shoe fits, wear it.
Faux Jaux has now shattered all previous standards to take the award for Most Bitter, Spiteful, Vicious, and Cruel in a Tyrannical Role.
Joe Biden viciously attacked Republican governors over healthcare in a scathing tweet Thursday night, singling out the governors of Florida and Texas after his administration admitted it is slashing delivery of lifesaving monoclonal antibody treatments for COVID-19 to their states because of ‘equity’ with states with higher vaccination rates.
Biden (or whoever wrote it for him) posted on Twitter, “Republican governors in states like Texas and Florida are doing everything they can to undermine the public health requirements that keep people safe. They’re playing politics with the lives of their citizens, especially children. I refuse to give in to it.”
As TGP reported earlier Thursday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defended the Biden administration slashing delivery in half of the monoclonal antibody treatment to Florida from a requested 70,000.
Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson confronted Psaki on this and asked her why the Biden Regime is slashing doses of treatments sent to Florida when there is no shortage of supply to begin with.
“The Biden Administration is cutting supplies in red states by 50% – so for example, in Florida, they were expecting to get 70,000 doses this week which they say they need – they’re only getting 30,000 doses,” Emerald Robinson said. “And this is just not for unvaccinated people. In South Florida half the people who are seeking this treatment are fully vaccinated, so why is the Biden Administration cutting these supplies?”
Psaki smirked as she gleefully admitted the Biden Regime’s priority is to be “equitable.”
So, a government-run Covid death panel?
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis released a video statement following Biden’s attack, “I will fight like hell to overcome Biden’s cruel decision to drastically reduce lifesaving monoclonal antibody treatments for Floridians. We’ve seen steep reductions in hospital admissions due to early treatment efforts. It’s wrong to penalize Florida for his partisan bitterness.”
Accurate enough, Gov, but still a mite too soft-spoken to suit my taste. Let’s let your press sec try her hand at it, shall we?
DeSantis press secretary Christina Pushaw called Biden’s action, “pure evil”, “You are cutting off the supply of lifesaving treatment to Florida, Texas and other states that resist your tyrannical mandates. You are only hurting the everyday people of our states, and it’s all for your political agenda. This is pure evil.”
Ahhh yeah, there t’is.
Pushaw isn’t being unduly harsh or hyperbolic by saying this, either; Biden’s partisan assault against Southern governors whose staunch refusal to bend the knee and surrender their people to a tyrant’s whim pits their courage and patriotism against said tyrant’s patent lack of concern for American lives across the board, whether in Florida or Kabul. If such monstrous inhumanity, callousness, and indecency isn’t pure evil, I’d sure hate to see whatever is. More righteous fury from Pushaw at the link.
But fret not, sports fans; as Biden’s War On Freedom continues to heat up, America’s Governor has just executed an unexpected flanking maneuver that would have had Gen Thomas P Jackson himself leaping from his seat in wild applause.
Florida’s DeSantis Responds to Biden Limiting Florida COVID Therapeutics – Announces Monoclonal Antibody Purchases Directly From Glaxo Smith Kline
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded directly to the White House effort to kill Florida residents by withholding previously agreed shipments of Monoclonal Antibodies.
During a press conference earlier today, Governor DeSantis outlined the issues Florida is facing after the Biden administration instructed the federal offices of HHS to punish the successful therapy and recovery efforts of the sunshine state healthcare system. DeSantis outlines the purchase agreement that Biden intentionally violated and also the issues created by the federal government now blocking direct purchasing of treatment from the manufacturer.
Additionally, DeSantis noted he has held meetings with ¹GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to purchase mAb shipments directly from the second source manufacturer in order to work around the roadblocks being presented by the Biden administration. DeSantis reaffirmed his commitment to stand in the way, and not allow Joe Biden to kill Americans just because he doesn’t like their politics.
I repeat: We cannot spare this man. He fights.
Brandon Smith comes right out with it.
A war is coming. I have heard it argued that this war must be avoided; that it is “exactly what the establishment wants.” I disagree. I think globalists like those at the World Economic Forum certainly want enough chaos to provide cover for the implementation of their global “Reset” agenda, but they don’t want a full blown rebellion. They only want events in which the outcome is controllable or predictable – They do not want a massive organized resistance that might surprise them.
Ultimately it doesn’t matter because the war is already at our doorstep. A person has two choices: Fight or be enslaved. There is no third option. There is no walking away. There is no hiding from it and there is no passive solution to it.
Joe Biden’s recent declaration of a federal level nationwide vaccine mandate has all but ensured that conflict is inevitable. Why? Because it is the first major step towards a two-tier society in which the unvaxxed are cut out of the economy. The next step? Forced vaccinations under threat of fines and imprisonment, the threat of confiscation of one’s children, or vaccination at the barrel of a gun. Needless to say, this was not at all surprising to me. In December of last year I published an article titled ‘If You Thought 2020 Was Bad, Watch What Happens In 2021’, stating that:
“There will then be a major push to require medical passports proving a person is not infected to enter into any public place. This means submission to 24/7 contact tracing or getting a new vaccine whenever ordered to. Basically, your life will be under the total control of state or federal governments if you want to have any semblance of returning to your normal life…..New mutations of COVID-19 will be conveniently found every year from now on, meaning the public will have to get new vaccinations constantly, and medical tyranny will never go away unless people take an aggressive stand.”
I have also mentioned often in the past that Biden WOULD institute federal level vaccines mandates and possibly even Level 4 lockdowns. We are not to the point yet of lockdowns by executive order, but the Biden Administration is trying to dive headlong into the control agenda with an executive order stating that all businesses in the US with 100 employees or more must require those employees to provide proof of vaccination or demand employees show a negative covid test weekly (which will be impossible for most people). In other words, the Orwellian rise of vaccine passports has officially begun in the US.
Not only was Biden’s announcement an utter violation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, it was also condescending and vitriolic towards Americans who refuse to become guinea pigs for the experimental and untested vaccines. Biden suggested that the establishment “Has been patient, but their patience is wearing thin.”
I have to say, Biden is in for a shock if he thinks we care.
The biggest question is – Why should anyone submit to covid mandates at all? Mandates are not laws, they are color of law restrictions without legal merit. The bottom line? Unconstitutional orders are not to be followed. This leads us to the state and local strategies for fighting back against the federal passport mandates. Let’s get into it:
Follows, a list of suggested tacks to take, some of them a bit obvious, some having been put forth in several places already. Those I won’t go into now, other than to say that I have no real problem with any of ’em. These next, though, I particularly like, the last one most of all:
Confiscate Federal Lands And Resources
Any state that is cut off from its rightful share of tax dollars can easily claim domain over federal lands and the resources on them. It is the EPA restrictions on these lands that have been unfairly used to kill numerous industries across the country. With proper management, these resources can be used to revitalize state economies and offset any federal funds lost.
Offer Businesses Federal Tax Exemptions If They Relocate
Red states can also punish the federal government by stopping IRS tax collections within their borders and turning the tables on Biden. Numerous businesses would be itching to escape Biden’s high tax rates and would bring jobs and wealth into red states, leaving the conformist blue states in the dust.
Boot Federal Agencies Out Of The State Or County
Local law enforcement is refusing to enforce mandates in many places, which is a good start, but eventually sheriffs and communities may have to remove federal presence entirely in order to stop violations if civil liberties.
Offer Safe Havens For Military Personnel That Go AWOL To Avoid Forced Vaccination
A large percentage of soldiers say they will not comply with federal vax requirements and this is completely understandable given the evidence I just presented above. It would be to the benefit of red states to offer protection for soldiers that leave the military based on the principle of health autonomy. Perhaps they could even help in forming state militias…
Heh. That’s the spirit—undermine the tyrant even as he’s trying8 to undermine you. Better still, Brandon’s finale waxes downright obstreperous.
Unify For Defense
If Biden and the globalists continue to push for medical tyranny in states and counties that do not want it, there will eventually be calls for secession. There will also be attempts by blue states to restrict the travel of people from red states using covid passport checkpoints. We all know this is coming. All conservative counties should be organizing localized security through public militias, and state governments should be thinking along these lines as well. If there’s one thing authoritarians HATE more than anything else it is suffering the existence of free neighbors. They will try to stop us from being free, and we must be ready to answer their violence with our own.
Finally, I would like to speak to Joe Biden directly, since Joe was so keen on personally addressing us:
Joe, let me clarify this in the simplest terms possible so that you can grasp it – You are not important. You are not a lawmaker and you are not a ruler, you are an employee of the American people, that is all your are supposed to be. And though you may wish to be a dictator, that’s not going to happen. We will not allow it. I realize that you are a puppet and that your globalist handlers make most of your decisions and write most of your statements for you, so you can pass this message on to them as well: WE WILL NOT COMPLY. It’s not going to happen. Get used to the idea.
We are peaceful people and always have been. Our tolerance of your trespasses thus far is proof of that. But do not mistake our peacefulness as weakness. If you keep coming after us, you will regret it. We will teach you an important lesson in humility; a lesson you and your elitist friends sorely need and will not enjoy. This is a promise.
PREACH it, brother. As for Biden, his puppeteers, and every other would-be despot: Keep pushing and find out, you scum-sucking sonsabitches.
Peace at any price is no kind of bargain.
If the 9/11 terrorists were alive today to look at the changes they wrought in America with that one act, on that one day, how could they be anything but delighted? If the goal was just to kill Americans, they were successful. If the goal was to warp and distort the fabric of American life, they were successful beyond their wildest dreams. They succeeded in that because we decided that safety was more important than anything else.
If our founders had valued safety over freedom we’d still be British. And I suspect an increasing number of academics, intellectual elites, and government bureaucrats wouldn’t see the harm in that—one country, they think, is very much like another. Life in Canada isn’t so different from life here, etc., etc.
And that brings us to the coronavirus. This disease is not, as some thoughtless people have claimed, our generation’s “World War II”: For one thing, you can’t have a war without fighting back. It is rather another 9/11—a successful attack on the American way of life. The attack comes from China this time. But the results are similar:
Joe Biden said on September 9, just two days before the 20th anniversary of September 11, that he would force everyone to get the vaccine, and seek to punish those who do not: “This is not about freedom or personal choice. It’s about protecting yourself and those around you.” That sentence, among the most disgusting ever spoken by an American president, is music to the ears of the Chinese Communist Party. It’s music to the ears of the Taliban. It’s music to the ears of every America-hating bastard everywhere, including those who were born and live here and who are teaching our children in school to hate America.
A few months ago, you were a conspiracy theorist for suggesting that vaccine passports would even be considered. Today, you’re a conspiracy theorist for suggesting there might be something wrong with the idea.
Joe Biden’s America is America in name only, just as he himself is president in name only. You see people driving around alone in their cars wearing masks on their faces—so terrified of getting sick that they have become sickness itself. They wouldn’t have been willing to fight World War II. They’re peace-at-any-pricers: the people who would have been willing to accept a Nazified Europe in exchange for Hitler’s agreement to let Britain continue existing. (There were plenty of those people in Britain at the time; thank God they were not in charge.)
So I’m not going to get the vaccine. I’m not going to wear a mask, anywhere. If someone asks me whether I’ve been vaccinated, I’ll tell him the truth: That it’s none of his business.
If you prefer safety to freedom, that’s your choice: It’s a free country. You can even tell me “screw your freedom,” as a once-popular actor recently said. But I reserve the right to make my own choices too, and I’m for freedom. Freedom at any price. That is the essence of America.
Myself, I’m just happy to finally run across a column that acknowledges the plain fact that, just as American liberty could never have been secured without violence, it likewise cannot be maintained should any generation of the Founders’ posterity foreswear the use of violence in its defense. Calls for “freedom at any price” can only sound flat and flaccid when accompanied by such timorous, historically-illiterate backpedaling. Threats of “war” unsupported by any credible likelihood of follow-through harsher than rhetoric, lawsuits, and “voting” are no real threat at all, just empty bluster and bluff. And, as any poker player can tell you, bluffs will, sooner or later, get called.
Of all the speculative discussions I’ve seen on the ways CW 2.0 might play out should the temp knob ever actually be dialed up from the current Med-Hi setting on up to full-on Rolling Boil, these feel to me like the most realistic, plausible, and probable of them so far. Scenario One:
You’re a battalion commander in 2ID. For nine months you’ve been tasked with keeping I85 open between Portland and Boise. It’s a ridiculous area for one battalion, but every maneuver unit in the military is tasked.
There is no rotation out on the horizon. Your companies are strung out in platoon COPs across 500 miles of mostly remote highway.
Most of your HHC is in ad hoc platoons covering sectors as well.
The supply line is absolutely vital to keep the rest of your brigade sustained as it tries to secure Idaho.
Just as important is keeping it open westbound, to supply Portland, Seattle, and the areas in between. The insurgency played hell with the supply chain. FEMA is rationing food and necessities in urban areas, and every load is needed.
Early on you mostly dealt with occasional harrassment and clearing logs from the roadway. Turns out one guy with a chainsaw can snarl traffic through Umatilla National Forest for hours. Tracking them on logging roads and ATV trails is a nightmare.
You quickly learned that if you sent out road crews without escort, they would take harassing fire immediately. After one crew had their equipment torched and was forced to walk back in underwear, they refuse to work without a security element.
The problem is that when security is with the road crews, the insurgents just flex a few miles away and either create another roadblock, or sometimes hijack and burn a few loads stuck in the traffic. They especially seem to love hitting your fuelers. You’ve tried sending up UAVs to catch them at it, but they seem to have uncanny awareness of when you’re setting a trap and rarely bite. Those few you do roll up are sent north to the massive camp near Moses Lake. What you really need are SOF assets hunting the enemy while your forces hold key terrain.
Unfortunately, those assets are stretched thin and hard to come by.
It doesn’t help that the army lost 35% of long tabs in the Vax Purge of ’21. It also doesn’t help that half of 1st group is considered “politically unreliable” and is kept on Rear D at JBLM. Rumor is at least a dozen of those guys have up and vanished with their families, but solid info is kept close. You just know getting SOF assets in your AO is dicey.
SOF aren’t the only ones with personnel issues. You left 28 natives of Oregon and Idaho on rear D, to avoid any conflicts. Just last month CID rolled up an E4 who was passing convoy manifests and schedules to an old battle buddy in Lakewood, who was passing it to the insurgents.
Now your entire rear D is in segregated barracks and closely watched, and you’ve had to confiscate phones across the battalion. Your soldiers get one monitored call per week to their families. You’ve already signed 7 NJPs for guys who got caught with burners. The best intel you get, at least at first, was from social media companies providing data based on algorithms that identified insurgent activity.
The first round of mass arrests got hundreds. That dried up quickly, as they stopped using the platforms. It also scooped up hundreds of people based on social media history who are being held without charges, and are a constant PR nightmare. You have family members at your CP every day demanding due process, though you have nothing to do with detainee ops.
The biggest headache in your life, though, is the “volunteers”. When the proud boys tried to make a stand in Vancouver, and were immediately crushed, hundreds of “antifascists” showed up to “help”. You’ve been ordered to treat them as partner forces, but they’re worse than ANA. Half of them wheeze when they climb out of their subarus, and the other half can’t hold high ready for more than 10 seconds. They don’t follow orders, and after a few complaints about looting and some proud boy families going missing, the gloves came off locally. They still won’t engage your forces directly, but any “volunteers” who leave the wire on their own are likely to be found nailed to a tree. Of course local property crime and rape seems to correlate directly to their presence. They don’t want to fight, but they’ll harass civvies.
You get your morning brief and find that some of Idaho NGs missing Stingers surfaced last night and you’re down a chinook. You thank your lucky stars that Americans with ARs can’t fight the military.
Ok. Let’s do a thought exercise.
Those 12 Cletuses are the dumbest and most expendable guys the rebels have. They’re the dudes who don’t listen, just want to spray paint punisher skulls on everything and drive around larping.
Heaven forbid this civil war fantasy scenario plays out. Hypothetically speaking, and purely as a thought exercise. How do 12 Cletetus and company defend against a Predator drone? His talking points are asinine and pure political spin.
When your drone smokes them, they aren’t doing anything important to the rebellion because no one trusts them with important shit. They’re just driving around being dipshits.
But now, they’re useful. The pictures of their charred corpses and crying families are suddenly all over.
They’re a reminder of what people like Jennifer are willing to do to people who won’t submit to them. Hundreds of thousands are radicalized. Some of the dumber ones learn a harsh lesson about listening to those who’ve done work, and become more circumspect.
Meanwhile smart people are busy identifying the unit the drone was with. Who the operators and commanders are. Who had to give approval. What political flunkies were involved. Who all of their families are and where they live. Who maintains and fuels the drones.
One day a pilot from that unit gets capped in the head at a gas station. No witnesses. The unit is locked down and not allowed off post.
A couple families get the corpse pictures slipped under their door.
Now the unit has to pull the families on post, too.
They have to devote resources to keeping them secure. They’re cooped up in shitty army quarters for who knows how long, miserable and bitching, while the government tries to “investigate”.
But feds going out to investigate wind up dead.
And soldiers find nothing.
Meanwhile the main rail line that brings in fuel mysteriously blows up, and the gov is forced to truck fuel the long and expensive way.
Plus they have to guard it, because it might not make it. They have to use soldiers, because civilian truckers won’t touch the job.
That’s because they were quietly warned that any trucker delivering to that base would be found hanging from a light pole with a punisher skull carved into his chest.
That skull becomes a shorthand to identify collaborators.
People like Jennifer find it painted on their doors.
The cops are overwhelmed, and most sympathize with the rebels anyway. They won’t miss Jennifer calling every other week because her neighbors fence doesn’t have HOA approval. So they don’t care.
Soldiers suck at investigating, so they can’t do shit either.
The mil has bigger problems anyway. Anything exposed and unguarded is probably not coming back.
Whenever they come out in force, there’s nothing to be found but law abiding citizens who will tell them they hate the rebels. Morale sucks and tempers are short.
Command is terrified that someone is gonna lose it and shoot a kid taunting his patrol, or something. They know what happens to units that get linked to atrocities.
So Jennifer is on her fucking own.
No cops, no soldiers, no feds. They don’t care and have bigger priorities.
She’s not important enough to protect, and her circle of people cant muster up more than a decorative katana and a bunch of soy.
Every time she finds the punisher scrawled on her car or fence she wonders if it’s just asshole kids or if she’s about to be an object lesson.
People start to shun her, too, because no one wants to risk being associated too closely with a collaborator.
She’s on her own, no one but her cats for company, and even when things calm down everyone she knows will remember that she sided with authoritarianism.
The Punisher skull idea is a nice touch. Any dot-mil officer, Deep State bureauslime, or “elected” official mired in hubris and habit deeply enough to think that this conflict will be fought in strict conformance with the large-unit doctrines they’ve trained for and are most familiar with—all of which confidently predict that the Resistance irregulars will be crushed, with minimal effort or inconvenience—is in for a BIIIIIG surprise, and really ought to block out more time in his busy schedule for some careful reflection.
Several more of these sobering, thought-provoking tales can be found here. Spicy Time is NOT going to be either pretty or pleasant, for anybody, and that’s a hard fact.
If voting could change anything, it would be illegal.
Oh, it’s been happening a damned sight longer than that. Not just in California, either.
In the most predictable story to come out of California ahead of Tuesday’s recall election, voters across the state are reporting that they’ve been trying to cast their ballots only to find out they supposedly voted already.
Let’s cut to the chase. California’s universal mail-in voting system is specifically designed to allow Democrats to cheat. That’s it. This isn’t about “voter access” or Covid restrictions. It’s so operatives for the Communists — aka California’s Democratic Party — can steal ballots and send them in on behalf of embattled elitist Governor Gavin Newsom.
The risks are minimal. If someone comes in to vote in person and computers show someone already sent in a ballot, they are given a provisional ballot to “correct” the issue. But here’s the thing. If a street has 100 people on it and 50 vote, the other 50 who were mailed ballots will have their votes cast for them.
Fine and well so far. Alas, then comes the part I’ve come to think of, with equal measures of resignation and dread, as inevitable—just another of those distasteful but inexorable facts of life on this planet.
This story and others are why everyone who wants Gavin Newsom out needs to get to the polls and vote in person. Do not let propaganda and voter fraud steal another election in America.
Le groan. Do understand: I think highly of JD Rucker, usually am in agreement with his opinions and analysis, and enjoy his work, as is evidenced by the numerous links and excerpts to and from it to be found hereabouts. So I can only assume that the preceding ‘graph is actually Rucker’s way of auditioning for a position with the Babylon Bee, demonstrating his parodic qualifications by out-Bee’ing the Bee. Because if that ain’t what this is, one can only assume that Rucker seriously believes that near-ubiquitous vote fraud is best overcome by…wait for it…VOTING HARDERER!!!™
And y’all already know what I think about that stupid horseshit. For any who may not, this ought to make it clear as crystal for ya.
Democracy died on 2020-11-04, so I have been paying no attention to elections, electoral integrity laws, and all that.
But, due to normalcy bias, lots of people have:
In the run up before the 2020-11-03 election, the Democrats massively escalated all their regular routine fraud, sufficient to deal with a massive Trump landslide.
But instead of a massive Trump landslide, they got a colossal Trump landslide, so in the early hours of the morning of 2020-11-04, halted the counting, and proceed with hasty, panicked, and incompetent last minute fraud. Which last minute fraud was only applied to the federal election results, with the result that a lot of states went Republican at the state level.
And, theoretically, the states control the election process. So those freshly minted Republicans think they are onto a good thing. So, a bunch of election integrity laws.
Also, a whole lot of laws against critical race theory.
The laws on critical race theory appear to be having absolutely no effect. Law has ceased to matter. The laws on election integrity are likely to be similarly ignored. Only Republican scrutineers backed by physical violence are likely to have a significant effect on election outcomes. To attain a fair and honest electoral outcome, Republicans would need to deploy the methods that Julius Caesar and the NSDAP used attain a fair and honest electoral outcome. Such methods are likely to produce a fair election only once.
But it looks like the Republicans are going to try another ride on this merry go round. It will may well be their last ride. I count my survival prospects much better than theirs.
They’ll last exactly as long as the rotting political edifice they serve does, and not one shake of a lamb’s tail beyond that. Until such time as the debased system which shelters the whole grift is brought down, Republicrats and Demicans alike will continue the charade, gleefully cavorting amongst the rubble of the once-proud society they’ve wrecked, as always. They’re parasites, after all, and that’s just what parasites do: they keep sucking until the host is bled dry and dead.
Election fraud can never be overcome by more fraudulent elections. The only way to deal with it is by actively eradicating it. That of neccessity means actively pursuing, apprehending, and punishing those who perpetrate it, with the severity of punishment in exact proportion to the seriousness of the crime. In the case of election fraud, the damage done is truly enormous, very nearly incalculable; not only individuals but the entire society is grievously, perhaps fatally injured by it. To my mind, therefore, the appropriate let-the-punishment-fit-the-crime sentence can only be the guillotine.
However, being a compassionate, empathetic, and humane sort, I am quite willing to entertain the idea of reasonable compromise on such mundane particulars. So in the spirit of comity and respectful debate, please allow me to submit a few practical, reasonable alternatives:
There ya go. We good now? Because if need be, I can easily come up with more options.
Just doing what tyrants always do: doubling down, then tripling down, then fourpling down, etc. With them, it’s always damn the
torpedoes failures, full speed ahead.
They will not stop. They will have to BE stopped.
‘We’re Not Done Yet’: Biden To Announce More Pandemic Measures
US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek ‘masks don’t work… wait just kidding’ Murthy on Sunday defended the Biden administration’s new Covid vaccine mandates – calling them an “appropriate legal measure” to keep people safe.
“From the beginning, the president and all of us said ‘we’ve got to use every lever we have to fight this pandemic,” said Murthy.
Murthy also said there’s more to come.
“We’re not done yet,” said Murthy, adding that while vaccines are the ‘backbone’ of the government’s multi-pronged effort, “we know that there are other mitigation measures,” including masking, testing and social distancing.
“How quickly we get to a level where cases are low and stay low really depends on what we do collectively – not just the government – but each of us, as private citizens and what universities and schools and businesses do. If we work quickly to get people vaccinated, then we will get there faster,” he continued, adding “one of the things we cannot afford to do is allow the Covid-19 experience to turn us against each other. Our enemy is the virus, it is not each other,” (a line he repeated on ABC).
Nice try, fascist tapeworm. Your enemy is us, and our enemy is you. The Virus™ is a red herring, a plot device used for purposes of distraction—or, as the director more skilled in its use than anybody before him or since called it, a MacGuffin—and nothing more. Don’t think we don’t know it.
Anyway, how’s all that working out for ya so far, guys?
VACCINE REBELLION: Growing number of US states are refusing to go along with Biden’s covid vaccine fascism
About half the country is resisting Joe Biden’s latest Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccine” mandate.
The states of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming are all engaging in some form of “vaccine rebellion” against the Biden regime, while the rest are capitulating – at least for now.
Pedo Joe decided on September 9 that he is going to try to force all federal, contract and large private corporate employees to get injected with Donald “father of the vaccine” Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed” jabs as a condition of employment.
Hunter’s dad said he is getting very ornery and impatient over the fact that tens of millions of Americans want absolutely nothing to do with Fauci Flu shots, no matter how many times he barks at them about it.
Rather than calm him down by giving him extra medication and a nap, Biden’s handlers are instead riling him up even more about the fact that Americans are refusing to obey his unconstitutional demands.
Hm. Pretty handy guide for distinguishing Free States from Slave States and determining the current state of play generally, I’d say. Keep it on hand as kind of a Civil War 2.0 scorecard, although the situation is quite fluid; it’s early innings yet, so the lineup will most likely change as the game continues. Ahh, but is there more EPIC BidenFail in evidence out there, you ask? Plenty.

That’s but a small sampling of the burgeoning resistance, which doesn’t even touch on the hilarious “FUCK JOE BIDEN!” mania currently sweeping the nation. So yeah, keep up the good work, Gropey. You’re doin’ great.
As I said: there IS a forward, be it ever so dark and difficult, and Bill knows what it is.
What we most need today is honesty with ourselves, about what we have lost, where we are now, how we got here, and where we need to go, and what we need to do going forward.
We see damned little of any of it these days on the patriotic right.
We need to understand that our purported “champions” were not that. George W. Bush was playing for the New World Order team, not ours. He still is. As only befits a scion of CIA family. He created the massive security state that holds us in an iron grip of tyranny today.
Barack Obama, likely not even an American citizen, let alone an American, was, and is, playing for the communist Islamic team. He wrecked our economy, and it has still not recovered. He continues, behind the scenes, to pull the strings of the “Biden Administration,” which is both wrecking our economy today, and tightening the grip of tyranny.
Donald J. Trump seems to have meant well, and made some small improvements for a short time, but in the end was ineffectual, and his improvements were swept away as he was swept out of office by treachery and fraud, both of which he seemed unable to either anticipate or counter.
We don’t even know who the “Biden Administration” really is. My guess is a cabal of unbelievably rich, evil men working through Obama, Hillary Clinton, or both.
Whatever, they have wrecked our country beyond redemption. There will be no coming back to the good old days from where we are now. In truth, the issue now is not such a return, but brute survival. Will the United States survive as either a state, or as a union?
No, we are not going to vote our way out of this, because the rot extends far beyond the abilities of the ballot box to reach, even if our elections had not been almost entirely poisoned by the fraud of the regime. The permanent ruling class never comes up for a vote at all. The communist academicians who poison our youth are never elected, and cannot be removed by voting them out.
What we face is a regime that hates us and seeks to destroy us.
Angelo Codevilla explains what that means:
Regimes, as serious people know, are a lot more than governments. They are the priorities, standards, ways of life, embodied by the most prominent persons in the land, and very much by their henchmen.
In other words, our American regime is the American ruling class and its henchman. This would include most of the elected government, almost all of the permanent bureaucratic government, the spy complex, their henchmen in academia, the churches, the media/propaganda industry, the medical/pharma industry, and, most of all, the multi-billionaire oligarchs who control and direct the entire choir.
The next question we must face is both repellant and crucial. And, again, Codevilla provides the answer:
who are the people whose deaths would diminish it?
That is, who must patriots kill to end the stranglehold the current American regime has on our throats and lives?
No one should declare war without being clear against whom it is being declared: who the enemy is whose demise will give us peace.
Here is Codevilla’s answer:
It is enough for our peace that there be people who have their own reasons for destroying the people and culture—the regimes—that are the effective causes of violence against us.
The people and culture – the regimes.
Because that is what a regime is – a class of people with a similar culture. Our ruling class, for instance, has a culture of dominance, socialism-communism, authoritarian tyranny in pursuit of its goals, corruption, mind control, lies and propaganda, and ubiquitous power expressed through the organs of a controlling oligarchy of very rich men. Everyone who shares this culture is a member of the regime.
Therefore, the question becomes, how many of these people must we kill to give us freedom?
How biting and cruel the irony, that flinching from committing wholesale blood and slaughter all across the Moslem world would ultimately force us into a position whose toils can only be escaped by committing wholesale blood and slaughter against non-Moslems right here at home? Somewhere, Loki the Prankster must be laughing his ass off.
All of them harsh, ugly, unsettling ones.
Some days back a friend asked me what we have learned twenty years after 9/11. I sent these answers:
1) That our enemies have taken our measure, and we never took theirs. Bin Laden’s strategic predictions vis a vis Afghanistan and the United States have been vindicated: 9/11 was for the other side a massive, generational strategic success.
2) That the entire American governing apparatus is incapable of real strategic thought.
3) That the federal government of the United States is much more inventive, determined, and relentless in curbing its own citizenry than it is in curbing those who would slaughter that citizenry.
4) That the federal government of the United States will allow foreign-power interests — specifically Saudi and Pakistani — to override and eclipse the just interests of the American citizenry.
5) The preceding item exists, of course, because we are ruled by an elite with much stronger social ties to other elites than to the people of our republic.
6) That our generational response to 9/11 guarantees that 9/11 will happen again and again.
This twentieth anniversary is even more depressing and cruel than they usually are. We didn’t suffer as a lot of Americans did that day — my wife made it out of Lower Manhattan alive, for one thing — but because we are Americans, we suffered. Our leadership class was utterly incompetent to the moment, and remained so for the succeeding generation. Today we have inflicted upon us the twin bookends of blundering who mark the two-decade span. In Pennsylvania, President George W. Bush speaks: the man who cared more for Saudis than Americans while the fires still burned, who abandoned the hunt for the immediate perpetrator mere weeks after the massacre, and who cynically leveraged the moment to pursue his own disastrous projects. In Manhattan, President Joe Biden speaks: the lone figure of significance who opposed the raid to get Osama Bin Laden, and the man who presided over the shameful humiliation of defeat in Afghanistan.
A healthy and virtuous republican citizenry would shun them, and erase their names from the record.
Some questions arise. Now that we’ve decided it’s fine for Al Qaeda and the Taliban to have a country of their own again, can we at least abolish the TSA? Now that we’ve given Al Qaeda and the Taliban a stupendous cache of arms and ammunition, can we eliminate all federal gun-control law? Now that we’ve decided we have a community of interest with the Taliban — including its Al Qaeda elements — can we release everyone jailed on account of January 6th?
Hey, just asking. It hardly seems unreasonable for Americans to ask Washington, D.C., for treatment as generous as Washington, D.C., accords the terrorist movements who slaughtered thousands of us in our own streets.
Not gonna happen, which, as his bitter sarcasm indicates, the author well knows already. Things having worked out so swimmingly for our oppressors, with authoritarian tyranny so comfortably settled in and secure on American shoulders, it’s obvious our masters learned a few useful lessons themselves. Out of all of them, the rewards gained from the mutually-reinforcing virtues of patience and single-mindedness would have to be near the top of the list.
Getting schooled updated! More damning and damaging are the lessons we DIDN’T learn.
America has not learned the lessons of 9/11. The lessons were lost as they were being learned.
Foreign pressure on political leaders in Washington, intellectual laziness or dishonesty in the intelligence community, and political correctness-turned-wokeness made it so.
American society repeated those unlearned lessons as the global pandemic spread from China.
The unlearned lesson goes like this: Trust your instincts about who was responsible for crimes perpetrated against you. Ask tough questions to find out who was behind them, and ruthlessly hold those top enablers accountable. Suspect those who deny the obvious and who discourage honest inquiry. Resist those who abuse their authority and erode constitutional rights in a misguided quest for “security” and “safety.” If you see something, say something loudly and ceaselessly.
In both man-made cataclysms, powerful foreign interests imposed extraordinary pressure to prevent the American public from demanding that the obvious funders and state sponsors be held accountable.
This is not a partisan issue.
The George W. Bush Administration actively discouraged its political allies at home from asking questions about the then-Saudi regime’s state and family-sponsorship of jihadist movements. It refused to entertain questions about involvement of the jihadist regime of Qatar.
For certain, al-Qaeda did not represent the beliefs of many of the world’s Muslims and Islamic clerics and scholars.
Oh? Name three. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
But it absolutely reflected the beliefs of elements of the Saudi regime of the time, and the entire Qatar regime then as now, to say nothing of the international Muslim Brotherhood that they funded.
In a goodwill bid toward Muslim people everywhere, Bush gave his “religion of peace” speech at the Islamic Center in Washington, D.C. All well and good. And all proper wartime public diplomacy.
And all a lie, every damned word of it. It was the opening class in Unlearned Lessons 101, a course of instruciton for which the syllabus might easily read: Never go to war against an enemy you’re forbidden to call by his rightful name.
So here we are, 20 years after the jihadist terrorist attacks that redefined our country, triggered a global techno-security system with endless mission creep, handing over our Afghanistan sacrifices to the Taliban and Xi Jinping.
We failed to learn the lessons necessary for victory. And as we don our toylike masks and fight one another over whether or not to take experimental vaccines, and enter everybody into an ever-growing global database, we fail yet again to understand those who attacked us all.
Even though, in our inner consciences, we understand very well.
Well, some of us anyway. As prep for our final exams, we will discover how many of us do, and whether that number will be high enough for a passing grade.
It should come as no surprise to anybody that Steyn would have something well worth reading to say today.
For most of the last two decades we have observed the anniversary of 9/11 by re-posting my columns from the first few days of the new era. We ceased to do so after September 11th 2017 when “a president who, on the campaign trail, mocked his predecessor’s inability to use the words ‘radical Islam’ himself eschewed all mention of the I-word” – and a defense secretary laughably hyped as Mad Dog Mattis turned out to be just another dribbler from the Washington Generals and retreated to the madrassah wing of the Pentagon to explain that it was all just a theological misunderstanding.
We shall not resume our anniversary observances today. The war is lost, at home and abroad. On the domestic front, we doubled the rate of Muslim immigration to the west and began assimilating ourselves with Islam’s strictures on freedom of expression and the like. The decade-and-a-half since the Danish Mohammed cartoons has been one long remorseless surrender on core western liberties. When a school teacher gets beheaded in the street, there is no outrage at the act, just a mild regret that he should have been foolish enough to provoke his own fate. Even the milder jests from the immediate post-9/11 era – the cartoon of the woman trying on new burqas in the changing room and wondering, “Does my bomb look big in this?” – would not be published today:
In the broader society, our rulers quickly determined that it was easier to punish us than our enemies. The post-9/11 security state surely helped soften up western populations for the Chi-Com-19 lockdowns, in which entire nations have been reduced to TSA-administered airports.
As for the war overseas, it ended with a military that can do everything except win handing the keys to Afghanistan back to the guys who pulled off 9/11 – and apologizing for the two-decade inconvenience by gifting the mullahs with some of the most expensive infrastructure on the planet plus an air force, approximately five assault rifles for every Taliban fighter, and express check-in for the forty-seven per cent of the Afghan population that apparently served as US translators.
The position of the United States is far weaker than it was twenty years ago. Around the planet, the assumption of friends and enemies alike is that the American moment is over and the future belongs elsewhere. They are making their dispositions accordingly. It is not a question of wishing “the post-American world”, but of accepting the known facts.
There are honorable ways to lose a war. This was not one of them. We have dishonored the dead of 9/11 and insulted their sacrifice.
Indeed we have. Rather than avenge our losses, we inexplicably chose instead to disgrace ourselves and mortally endanger our posterity. Horrible as that is, though, it gets even worse.
I have personally overlooked many things from former President George W. Bush but his comparison between Trump voters and the Jihadists from 9/11 is an absolute disgrace. F*cking unbelievable. #NeverForget https://t.co/ZPFtz9J6a0

Unbelievable is the mot juste all right. Seriously, the clueless chutzpah of this vile shitweasel. I’m deeply ashamed to think I was actually blind and stupid enough to support and defend this asshole after 9/11. Although in semi-defense of that serious lapse of judgment on my part, I must also say that I couldn’t stand the smirking twerp before that.
In various comments sections I’ve perused, I’ve seen lame attempts to wave off this all-thumbs indecency by claiming that Bush wasn’t slandering Trump supporters and/or Patriots, in actuality talking about AntiFa/BLM/whothefuckever with a “domestic extremist” slam cribbed straight from the Ruling Class Cliff’s Notes. So sorry, sports fans, but…bullshit. Patent, arrant, see-through bullshit. For one thing, so far as I know Bush has heretofore uttered not a single peep in condemnation of those creeps. But he’s roundly denounced Trump and his supporters again and again and again, starting when his hapless schlub of a brother ¡Pleaseclap! got himself hit by the rapidly-accelerating Trump Train, crippling ¡Pleaseclap!‘s doomed-anyway run for Preznit on impact.
This intolerable calumny, mind, after maintaining a firmly buttoned lip about the godawful Obama throughout his two ruinous terms, ostensibly in the name of courtesy, tradition, and respect for the office, even when directly asked for his opinion. Tellingly, no such courtesy was extended to Trump; the tradition of post-presidential omerta Bush so resolutely upheld for his successor he quite eagerly traduced with Trump.
This intolerable calumny, mind, not only on the 9/11 anniversary, but on the very heels of the Biden Bugout.
This intolerable calumny, mind, after an initally successful drive into Ashcanistan predicated on the removal of Osama bin Laden’s Taliban enablers from power had wantonly been steered off the road and right into the nation-building ditch, leading to an agonizing slo-mo crash ‘n’ burn in which all faith in American foreign policy imperatives, reliability, and trustworthiness was completely immolated…ALL AT THE SPECIFIC BEHEST OF ONE GEORGE DUBYA MOTHERFUCKING RETARD BUSH.
But nononoNOOOO. The whole problem really comes down to folks wearing MAGA hats, see.
The NERVE of this prick. The sheer, unmitigated, illimitable, incomprehensible GALL. Straight to Hell with him, I say. He, his entire family, and the horses they all rode in on can die in a fucking fire for all me.
Insidious update! Moar Unbelievable yet: Bush hits a new low, then Biden digs deeper.
Joe Biden Delivers Astonishingly Insensitive and Insulting Remarks at 9/11 Memorial
When it was announced that Joe Biden would not give a speech on 9/11, many were shocked and dismayed that the President of the United States apparently felt it unnecessary to commemorate the 20th anniversary of one of America’s greatest tragedies. Instead, former President George W. Bush spoke, as various current and former government officials gathered at the Flight 93 memorial.
Of course, it’s not hard to imagine why he didn’t speak in person. The president has shown little ability to control his emotions lately, likely due to his sharp mental decline, and that’s led to several recent speeches in which he came across as angry and incoherent. That wouldn’t have been a good scene on 9/11.
Yet, Biden did end up giving some unscripted remarks. Perhaps without the permission of his handlers, the president fielded questions from the press. What followed was an absolutely insensitive and insulting tirade that was incredibly inappropriate for the moment, complete with multiple uses of the phrase “c’mon.”
On a day when others are commemorating the loss of nearly 3,000 American lives on 9/11, Biden is still preoccupied with defending his disastrous, deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan. At one point, he claims Al Qaeda was “wiped out” in Afghanistan, something that’s completely untrue. He then leans forward and says, “Can Al Qaeda come back, well yeah, but guess what?” before sarcastically saying “it’s already back in other places, what’s the strategy, every place where Al Qaeda is, we are gonna invade and have troops there…c’mon.”
I can’t think of a worse time to make the argument he’s making than at a memorial for victims of 9/11 who were murdered by Al Qaeda. Even if Biden believes what he’s saying, just wait until tomorrow to say it. This was just not the time. Combine that with his tone and tenor, defensive and angry at times, and what transpired was very jarring.
Everything about Biden’s brief interaction here was odd and out of place. It underscores exactly why he rarely takes questions, and when he does, he’s usually armed with a script and a list of reporters to call on. Still, you would hope he’d have enough decency to recognize what today means and to temper himself. Apparently, even that is too much to ask of this presiden
Hoping for decency from ProPol slime, most especially Biden, is nothing but a mug’s game. But hold on; although we’ve made great progress on this wretched journey, we haven’t reached Peak Unbelievable quite yet.
And that makes it official. Peak Unbelievable: REACHED.
Most Americans, even Democrats, are finally starting to realize our installed dictator is clueless. It turns out he’s classless as well.
Getty Images captured the moment when the occupant of the Oval Office took down his super-important-totally-effective-non-symbol-of-obedience, also known as a face mask, to scream at someone during the 9/11 ceremony today. It was Joe Biden and all of our country’s problems wrapped into a single moment. Even Bill Clinton seemed to appreciate the somber moment.
With all the bellyaching Democrats did during the Trump administration, one would think they’d be in fetal position by now watching Biden’s daily embarrassments.
Why on earth would you think that? Hell, they’re all in agreement with the drooling rutabaga; he “thinks” exactly like they do, and they’re proud of him.
In any race to the bottom of the barrel, you’ll never go wrong by betting on Senile Angry Joe to win. But hey, let’s not be too hasty in letting Ruling Class George, Asshole Extraordinaire, completely off the hook here, either.
Speaking at a 9/11 commemoration at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania, former President George W. Bush, who above all people should know better, made a veiled but unmistakable equation of the January 6 incident at the Capitol with the September 11, 2001, jihad terror attacks in New York and Washington.
“The security measures incorporated into our lives are both sources of comfort” – speak for yourself, George – “and reminders of our vulnerability.” That vulnerability was apparently laid bare anew during the January 6 events that the Left has worked so very hard to portray as an unprecedented, life-threatening attack on our “democracy” (it’s actually a republic, folks) as if they cared about that, and our way of life.
Bush continues: “We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders, but from violence that gathers within. There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home, but then there’s disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit, and it is our continuing duty to confront them.”
If Bush had been talking about Antifa and Black Lives Matter, he would have been right. But he wasn’t. Bush was, in fact, one of the first to jump on the January 6 “insurrection” bandwagon, issuing this statement on the same day:
Laura and I are watching the scenes of mayhem unfolding at the seat of our Nation’s government in disbelief and dismay. It is a sickening and heartbreaking sight. This is how election results are disputed in a banana republic – not our democratic republic. I am appalled by the reckless behavior of some political leaders since the election and by the lack of respect shown today for our institutions, our traditions, and our law enforcement. The violent assault on the Capitol – and disruption of a Constitutionally-mandated meeting of Congress – was undertaken by people whose passions have been inflamed by falsehoods and false hopes. Insurrection could do grave damage to our Nation and reputation. In the United States of America, it is the fundamental responsibility of every patriotic citizen to support the rule of law. To those who are disappointed in the results of the election: Our country is more important than the politics of the moment. Let the officials elected by the people fulfill their duties and represent our voices in peace and safety. May God continue to bless the United States of America.
His equating of the 9/11 jihadis with the people who entered the Capitol on January 6 (“their determination to defile national symbols”) is nothing short of monstrous. The jihadis, though he immediately denied it, were exponents of a 1,400-year-long war against the non-Muslim world, with a clearly defined ideology and belief system calling for warfare against and subjugation of non-Muslim states. The January 6 “insurrectionists” were unarmed, killed no one, were not there in service of any ideology, but only to protest against election fraud, and were not part of any coordinated plan (or else you would already have seen some people charged with insurrection and treason; no one has been).
That Bush, a cosseted member of the establishment since birth, would repeat these lies is insidious, and indicates that the elites haven’t given up their agenda of silencing and criminalizing all opposition to their agenda by claiming it leads to “insurrection.” And he is not alone, of course. “As I stand here tonight,” Old Joe Biden said in early May, “just one day shy of the 100th day of my administration. 100 days since I took the oath of office, lifted my hand off our family Bible, and inherited a nation in crisis. The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”
The idea that the entry of a group of unarmed people into the U.S. Capitol constituted the “worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War” was not just ridiculous (remember 9/11? Pearl Harbor?); it was insidious, as insidious as Bush’s remarks on September 11. The silliness and hysteria are in service of an effort to stigmatize, demonize and silence all dissent from their far-left agenda.
Ayup. Which deceitful, opportunistic manipulation intended to keep the big ball o’tyranny rolling merrily along just makes the whole thing all the more despicable.
Classy update! Compare, contrast.
Former President Trump made a surprise visit with New York City police and firefighters Saturday to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.
In remarks to assembled guests, the former president sharply rebuked President Biden and the US pullout from Afghanistan.
“It was gross incompetence and I hate to talk about it on this day,” Trump said.
Trump praised New York’s Finest, telling the crowd, “if they let you do your job you wouldn’t have crime in New York!”
As some in the crowd nodded their heads, The Donald jokingly warned them to “just stand and just be perfect.”
He also signed the stationhouse log book, writing, “I love you all!”
Trump left the NYPD’s 17th Precinct in midtown just after 1:40 pm. He exited to cheers and applause, with one well-wisher screaming, “Thank you for keeping us safe.”
Y’know, for a guy widely vilified as an irredeemable, boorish clod entirely bereft of politesse or polish, he sure just made both Biden and Bush look like a couple of belching, farting troglodytes, didn’t he?
Who’dathunkit, that we’ve been fighting the wrong damned enemy all this time?
The 9/11 Attacks Ultimately Proved A Lesser Threat To America Than The Totalitarian Left
Twenty years after the attacks of September 11, 2001, it’s safe to say they did not herald the defining, all-consuming civilizational struggle we had anticipated. The thing we most feared, Islamic terrorism, did not prove to be our worst enemy or the greatest threat to our republic. The real enemy, it turns out, came from within.
In the 20 years since the attacks, America’s own totalitarian left has proven to be a far more dangerous and committed enemy of the United States than any distant jihadists, harboring as much hatred for our heritage of freedom and chaotic way of life as Osama bin Laden ever did.
Christopher Hitchens famously described bin Laden’s animating ideology as, “fascism with an Islamic face,” later adopting the apt term, “Islamofascism.” Hitchens thought the fascist comparison appropriate because both movements, in his view, are murderous cults, hostile to modernity and the life of the mind, nostalgic for empires of past glory, and obsessed with past humiliations and a desire for revenge, among other things.
But the fascism of bin Laden and his ilk, while obviously dangerous (and likely to become more so after our utter defeat in Afghanistan), hasn’t proved as durable or tangible as the fascism of the Democratic Party under the Biden administration.
Bin Laden, who correctly foresaw disaster and eventual defeat for the invading Americans in Afghanistan, could not have guessed that by the 20th anniversary of 9/11, America’s ruling elite would have become this fascist. Indeed, when a regime uses the power of the state to compel major corporations to enforce its mandates and enact its agenda, that’s actual textbook fascism. Hitchens, if he were alive to see it, might have called it “fascism with a bureaucrat’s face,” or “bureaufascism.”
Biden’s vaccine mandate is of course just one example, plucked from yesterday’s news cycle, of the left’s hatred of America and the freedom of its people. Over the past year-and-a-half of the pandemic, we have witnessed an unprecedented expansion of rule by executive fiat, with governors and mayors and public health officials wielding powers too often directed against churches and independent businesses. The 9/11 hijackers hated our freedoms, to be sure, but the pandemic has revealed that the left hates those freedoms at least as much as the terrorists, and would like very much to stamp them out.
Like the hijackers, the left holds almost everything about America in contempt. We are told in our workplaces — and our children are taught in their schools — that the United States is irredeemably racist, founded on violence, and that our constitutional experiment amounts to nothing more than a massive crime. We are called upon to repudiate our past and pull down monuments to our forebears — not just Confederate generals but also our Founding Fathers.
We are instructed that men can be women if they so choose, and those who disagree should probably lose their jobs and be ostracized. If you object to your daughter being forced to compete in school sports with boys who claim to be girls, you’re a bigot who must be silenced.
The reductive, totalizing ideology of the left has seeped into nearly every institution of American life, and dominates our culture and our politics. It is profoundly anti-American, and in the final analysis, it is a far greater threat to the future of our republic than even the wildest plots and most murderous fantasies of all the world’s jihadists combined.
When it comes to tearing down America, brick by brick, the Islamofascists of 9/11 had nothing on those who now command the heights of our culture, and purport to rule us from Washington.
Indeed they don’t. All the way back to the earliest days of CF, I’ve been rhetorically scratching my head in baffled wonderment at the bizarre, contradictory alliance of convenience between the deranged obssessives of the America-Hatin’ Left and the grim jihadis who would cheerfully hack said Leftwits into bloody scraps for their degeneracy, their unfettered sexual libertinism, their irreligion, and their soulless decadence. Strange bedfellows doesn’t even begin to cover it.
Update! Bringing up “the earliest days of CF” inspired me to check the ol’ Wayback Machine to see if there was a CF archive from those bygone days of yore, when I was but a callow youth and the Thunder Lizards still walked the earth. I registered the domain name on 9/16; hastily cobbled together a design I could live with in GoLive for the fledgling blog; and started posting a couple-three days later. The earliest Wayback relic I could find is this one, from December of ’01.
MAN, but I am gettin’ OLD.
IN THE BEGINNING, THERE WAS…ummm, uhhh, s’cuse me—where was I again, now?
SO. The plan was to just basically be a staid, prim-and-proper news aggregator-type of operation. No cussin’, no offbeat topics, just serious and somber straight down the line. News items, updated as and when, with my own op-ed commentary appended. God only knows who I thought I would be competing with, or was walking in the footsteps of, or was influenced by. Could be I was actually vain enough to think I was creating something unique, branching off slightly from the road mainstream news outlets like the NYT, WaPo, WSJ, and NRO had already paved.
Looking back now, I can let myself off the hook just a little by thinking of CF as an almost visionary endeavor, seeing as how I WAS completely unaware of the existence of other bloggers out there and all. Even the word “blog” wasn’t in my vocabulary then; my unhip cluelessness, in other words, was total. In the dark and all unawares, I was jejune enough to quietly congratulate myself for coming up with a genuinely original concept, a brand-new Thing™…which, unfortunately for my rapidly-deflating ego, not only had already been invented, but was well on its way to becoming a national sensation by then.
So I’m sure you can imagine my chopfallen chagrin upon learning of fellow OG’s like Instapundit, Vodkapundit, Daily Pundit, Hawkgirl, USS Clueless, Little Green Footballs, and sooo many others, who either pre-dated CF or got cranking around the same time or just after I did. There might have been a touch of embarrassment at my gross presumption mixed in with that chagrin also, which I will neither confirm nor deny at this time.
From there, the CF fortune was made when Stephen Green, proprietor of the already quite prominent Vodkapundit, somehow ran across my Tough Chicks essay and decided to throw an approving link my way, a much-appreciated endorsement from a like-minded colleague I very much admired, then and now. After that, the relationship between Stephen and myself matured into a genuine, warm friendship that I’ve cherished ever since.
From its previous humble average of around 20 unique visitors per day, CF’s traffic suddenly exploded into the high hundreds, then thousands, all driven by the unlooked-for nod from Vodkapundit. Not long after that, my Frodo On Trial piece was likewise linked and excerpted at NRO’s The Corner, which in turn led to mentions at the Atlantic website and a handful of other Big Players whose gaze I never expected to attract, and wasn’t entirely sure I even wanted.
For years after 9/11 had supposedly “changed everything” (PRO TIP: it didn’t), I made it my practice to compose an essay marking the anniversary of the attacks, purposing to do my little all to help ensure that the gradually-fading vow that we would “Never forget, never forgive” might be upheld. Alas, my effort proved to be in vain, as the increasingly maudlin and disgraceful Ground Zero ceremonies came to feel more and more like some hollow, sick joke, in direct proportion to the grindingly slow collapse of America’s quest for righteous retribution into a black sinkhole of futility and cynical manipulation.
The foul taste left in American mouths from that collapse is foremost among several reasons why, for the last several years, I have commemmorated the anniversary of 9/11 with bitterly satirical “Happy 9/11 Day!” posts, if I even bothered to take note of the day at all. Having serendipitously stumbled into this rambling, navel-gazing digression, we’ll just formally declare this the 9/11 post for this year, aside from two closely-related points I’ll try to make in a separate post of their own.
America’s Governor spells it out once again for Emperor Faux Jaux.
“I would just say, generally, when you are taking action that is unconstitutional that threatens the jobs of people in my state, many, many thousands of jobs, I am standing for them, we are going to protect their jobs against federal overreach,” the governor said.
“This is a guy who criticizes the State of Florida for protecting parents’ rights,” he added. “He says school boards should be able to eliminate parents’ rights and force five-year-old kids to wear masks all day. That’s what he thinks is appropriate for government.”
“And yet, here he comes from Washington D.C., instituting an unprecedented mandate,” he continued. “When even his own people in the past have acknowledged it is not constitutional. That’s not leadership.”
Correct, Gov. What it is, is dictatorship.
“I think the problem I have with Joe Biden, more than anything, this guy doesn’t take responsibility for anything,” DeSantis said. “He is always trying to blame other people. Blame other states.”
“And these are times, if you believe in the Constitution, you’ve got to stand up,” DeSantis went on. The governor then made the point that Americans with natural immunity could be put out of a job when they have immunity that is just as strong as a vaccinated individual’s.
“It’s not based on science,” DeSantis went on. “He’s saying he’s losing patience with people?…We don’t live with a one-person rule in this country,” DeSantis said. “We live in a Constitutional system, where people’s rights are respected.”
Well, we did…once. Clearly, we no longer do. Which only makes it all the more urgent that we resist and defy this incontrovertibly unlawful edict NOW, lest the beachhead gained by tyranny on these shores tears ago be consolidated, hardened, and made forever impregnable before our very eyes. For anyone concerned about the legal niceties—PRO TIP: you shouldn’t be—here’s a leg for you to stand on:
The general misconception is that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law constitutes the law of the land. The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statute, to be valid, must be in agreement. It is impossible for both the Constitution and a law violating it to be valid; one must prevail. This is succinctly stated as follows:
The General rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law is, in reality, no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of it’s enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.
Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it…..
No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.
Of course, my own view is that we’re far beyond the point where appeals to “the law” can avail us, the law having been corrupted so severely that it is no longer of any use in the cause of liberty. The tragic reality is that there is NO appeal, to any authority whatsoever, that will move our sadistic rulers to desist. The onus is now exclusively on us: WE must resolve to take any and all necessary actions that will enable us to prevail over our oppressors, using every tool and tactic at hand for the purpose.
The first and handiest of those tools might well be direct refusal to comply, but there are others. Such as, say:
I know the illusion that we still have a constitutional republic is hard to dispel. All the same: It’s time, folks. We are reaping the fruits of the poisonous, blatantly stolen 2020 elections. We failed to correct them forcibly, as was our right and duty from the moment the cheating became visible. The consequences have arrived. Imagine the sound of a train of empty boxcars coming to a stop.
The country we loved and pledged allegiance to is no more.
There is one chance left, and I can’t put much faith in it.
No, I’m not talking about an armed uprising. While that’s still theoretically possible, it’s become plain that everyone is waiting for someone else to go first. Life is still too comfortable for Americans to plunk their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor on the barrelhead of revolution. Hey, you with the mouth: You do it. We’re too busy replying to one another on Facebook.
But there’s another weapon, if we can steel ourselves to its use. It has its own hazards, and will require more resolve than we’ve shown so far. Even though it wouldn’t require us to fire a shot, once again most Americans will sit on their hands and wait for someone else to take the lead.
That weapon is your pantry, assuming you have one and that it’s properly stocked.
We’re all familiar with jests about “the row of cans in the back of the cabinet.” You know, the ones that have been there since Noah first started measuring in cubits and the unicorns asked one another what all the hubbub about a big flood was about. However, owing to the proliferation of “warehouse” stores such as Costco and Sam’s Club, the majority of us have more than just a few cans of “emergency eats.” Most of us could feed our families on what’s already in the pantry for a week, perhaps longer, without going hungry or running out of anything genuinely essential. It might not be the tastiest menu we’ve ever enjoyed, but we’d live.
So what would happen if the American economy just…stopped? Not forever; just for a week or two. No workers showing up in the fields or at the office. No incomes or corporate revenues to tax. No municipal workers cleaning the streets or collecting the garbage. Especially, no trucks carrying food to the stores. Would you suffer greatly?
I wouldn’t, but I know who would: the elites in the cities. They have virtually no disaster reserves. They depend on a continuous flow of goods into their grocery stores just to stay alive. In three days they’d be on their knees, praying for the trucks to return. The cargo cultists of the South Pacific can tell you how that usually works out.
Food riots are rare in our nation’s history. Few of us can imagine the chaos that would ensue in the big blue cities.
What would happen to the District of Columbia, I wonder? It’s basically a big slum: a huge zone of blight, petty criminals, and welfare recipients, with a few ornate buildings at its center. Federal employees’ pantries might keep them eating for a few days, but what about the folks around them? And what would those far more numerous folks do when the food has vanished from the stores but the federal bureaudrones still look fat, dumb, and happy.
Four hundred million privately owned firearms and untold billions of rounds of ammunition. A hundred million armed citizens. Millions of military veterans who remember their oaths. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
An armed uprising against the Usurpers might still be possible, but the odds against it are severe. A passive-noncompliance movement, designed to starve the regime into surrender, is only slightly more plausible. All else is outright fantasy.
The constitutional federated republic called the United States of America has been overthrown from within. The Usurpers will ignore the courts and the Constitutional provisions designed to thwart them. They are confident that no matter what infamy they decree, there will be no armed uprising sufficient to bring them down. After all, they hold all the trumps.
Except for the contents of your pantry.
A mass work stoppage, in concert with a nationwide trucker’s strike, would at the very least serve unequivocal notice to The Enemy that our patience has reached its absolute limit, as has our willingness to endure further abuse from them without repercussion; under NO circumstances will our patience or our restraint be further extended, period. I also think sabotage and monkey-wrenching as methods of getting this party started for reals will help, although I also still firmly believe that the hateful yoke of DC Despotism can never be lifted from off our necks without violence.
Nonetheless, noncompliance, strikes, and sabotage are all fine ways of incrementally dipping our toes and acclimating ourselves to being in some deep, dark waters we hoped never to be shoved into in the first place. Like it or not, though, we’re fully immersed now, our options reduced to just the two: sink, or swim. And that, people, is IT. If it’s not time to start shooting, as some still contend, it’s nonetheless imperative that action be taken to somehow put the brakes on this madness. The long and the short of it is that this shit, plainly and simply, has got to be stopped. It’s entirely up to We, The People to see to it that FederalGovCo’s intolerable usurpations are not allowed to continue on unchecked, not one more step. Correia knows.
But, but Correia, the inevitable statist bootlicker will cry, this really is for THE GREATER GOOD. Bullshit. I don’t give a fuck if the administration issued a mandatory order that all Americans have to buy Larry Correia novels or face a $10,000 fine, that would be really great for me personally! However, that’s not within the scope of their fucking power, and all Americans should reflexively tell them to fuck off. Especially the people who think they have something to gain.
I didn’t write this post to rehash the debate over abortion or vaccines or whatever tomorrow’s new crisis will be if this one doesn’t poll good enough. I wrote this post because all of this shit is a byproduct of the people letting our government become too big, powerful, and invasive. And when that wasn’t bad enough, the leviathan became one with the megacorps who control all information. And all you have to do to get a pass from those pesky laws and rules they hound the rest of us with is be part of the leviathan! Because what could possibly go wrong there?
And then some of you will ask, but Correia, what’s your solution? Lol. What solution? Shit’s probably going to get weirder. My solution? Buy ammo and food storage. Make friends with your neighbors and be useful to your community. Don’t live anywhere run by democrats.
Best case scenario is the opposition party finds its spine and actually fights for something. That might stall the doomsday clock a bit. Realistically? They’ll screw it up. Or win (depending on how “fortified” the mid-term election is) and squander it as usual. Note however, I’m not saying the two parties are morally equivalent. That’s for cowards. Republicans suck, but the DNC as currently constituted is pure Satanic evil incarnate.
As our elected leaders continue to suck and fail, I expect to see a lot more civil disobedience happen. This isn’t a shocker. The left has already made it very clear that the rules don’t apply to them. The left burns, loots, murders, whatever. It all gets a pass. The right gets slightly uppity and it’s a world ending crisis that requires the full might of the federal government to come crashing down on their heads and 24/7 news coverage for months and special commissions and anybody who tangentially agrees with those uppity types needs to be driven from society for their extremist ways.
Progs like to blather on about the “social contract” but that’s a one-way street. We owe them everything. They don’t owe us shit. A black republican gets called “boy” and gets eggs thrown at him by a lady in an actual fucking gorilla mask and there’s crickets while a black liberal sees a garage tie and there’s an emergency FBI special investigation into the racist hatemongery of NASCAR. There’s one right wing protest and it’s an insurrection that requires 35,000 troops and endless fucking pearl clutching freak outs, but a Bernie Bro shoots republican congressmen at a baseball game and it’s like it never happened. A republican senator gets beaten and bones broken and the late-night hosts crack jokes about it. It’s why you can’t have a job and your kids suffer with miserable masks and all this abnormal anxiety causing bullshit that might emotionally scar them for life, but Barack Obama can have a birthday bash with 500 of his closest friends.
This lop-sided shit can’t last. The government doesn’t have a monopoly on force. Force got delegated to it by the people because the people trusted the government to use that force fairly. That’s the real “social contract”, and when it breaks bad things happen.
And for the fools cheering this madness on, we have this system for a reason. We have laws for a reason. We create laws the way we do for a reason. The founding fathers weren’t stupid. They were smarter than you idiots. Quit trying to gut or destroy every protection they put in place. That shit is there to protect you. But these stupid motherfuckers are not going to quit pushing until a critical mass of Americans just says fuck it and go full on Rwandan machete party.
Looks that way from here, yeah. Which, bad as that will surely be, is NOT without its bright side just the same. Personally, I eagerly look forward to the look on certain faces when they grok that big, sharp blade sweeping their way at long, long last. I know, I know, it makes me a bad person. Don’t care. Please enjoy this dramatization of what the scene at Playboy Mansion Northwest will look like on the frabjous day I finally get to see that look of surprise, horror, and disbelief on those deserving mugs:
Yep, I’m a bad man for sure and certain. What say we meet up in Hell for drinks, Cap’n?
You wanna moralize and preach, become a minister. Otherwise, just shut up and doctor.
An insidious sentiment has begun metastasizing throughout the United States and Britain, expressed by politicians, pundits, and – most disturbingly – by physicians themselves: that the unvaccinated who contract Covid-19 should be denied medical care.
It gets worse. A former US senator from Missouri, Claire McCaskill, also wants the unvaccinated to have their insurance rates raised. Piers Morgan, the British TV personality, demands to his nearly 8 million Twitter followers that the NHS must refuse them hospital beds. An emergency medical physician in Arizona responds to a video clip of people unmasked in a grocery store with a message, “Let ‘em die”. A liver surgeon at Massachusetts General suggests that declining a Covid vaccine should be treated by doctors as a functional Do Not Intubate/Do Not Resuscitate order.
These are neither private thoughts nor quiet conversations with overworked colleagues: these are calls to action, shared on social media, intended for public consumption.
This should terrify you.
Actually, it should enrage you, and fill you with what was long ago called a terrible resolve.
The above is from a long-ish piece by a fellow Weird Dave says is a “Moron, children’s book author and doctor (listed in order of importance)“, and is a must-read for sure. I’d love to pull more from it for this post, but since there’s already a lengthy list of other items I hope to get around to, this brief excerpt will have to suffice.
Expat sounds the cautionary note, making a much better job of it than I did with my own clumsy attempt the other night.
I know it’s a bitter pill to swallow. I know it’s retardation at it’s finest. Thing is, it also shows how desperate they’re getting. All you have to do is quietly fail to comply. Refuse. Remember the -best- way is to use some of the shit that brought another Socialist Bureaucratic-Oriented DotGov to it’s knees. That was Poland.
Yeah…Solidarity and their leader, true Nobel Peace Prize winner Lech Walesa. They most definitely don’t teach -anything- about the Solidarity Movement is schools here anymore. Nope, that’d be counterproductive to the plan. It ended up being a primarily peaceful overthrow-by-undermining the State via strikes, ridicule, and whatnot. Directly lifted from Wiki (not exactly an r/ourguys site):
“In the 1980s, Solidarity was a broad anti-bureaucratic social movement, using methods of civil resistance to advance the causes of workers’ rights and social change. Government attempts in the early 1980s to destroy the union through the imposition of martial law in Poland and the use of political repression failed.”
Part of -why- it worked was that they essentially undercut like everything. They started at the docks first, refusing to unload ships, which was a HUGE part of Poland’s trade. They did strikes, walk-offs all the usual union stuff. Not for nothing, I was living in Austria as a kid and remember watching it on a Black and White TV with my DeadDad wondering if the Rooskies were going to roll in the Armor like they did in oh so many other places. It was big news to all the ‘Muricans overseas…Thing was, we didn’t know it, but Ivan the Bear at the time was a hollowed out pale shadow of it’s former badass self…Sound familiar don’t it?
So yep. They’re going the same route. They as in Leviathan. The DotGov is trying to ‘rile us up’ into doing -something- that provokes us. And their “false flag department”, while still active, is sort of, pardon the pun, IMO “out of ammunition” as no one fucking believes their bullshit-filled-bullshitting selves any longer. They/, as they say, went for the ‘cheap regular thrills’ and now? It’s gonna have to be a really huge Whangdoodle of a -something- to get our attention these days. And if it’s that big and horrific, guesstimates on my end are No One is going to believe them at all.
Hell…I’m getting intel that MANY Regular Army Units are in almost open rebellion mode now. Troops are openly mocking the CinC (illegal to do on active duty) and daring the can’t cunt commanders to try something.
Know what gives me a little frisson of delight and makes my neck hairs stand on end? The prospect of Fuck Joe Bi-den, Fuck Joe Bid-en becoming a standard marching cadence in use by all units of the dot-mil. Not gonna happen, I know, but still.
Side note, apropos of nothing: Y’all feel free to correct me if I’m remembering it wrong here, but I seem to recall the “can’t cunt” formulation BCE just deployed as a trademark Marcinkoism, as in “no-load pusnutted pencilnecked diplo-dink can’t-cunt” etc etc. I have just about all of Demo Dick’s books around here someplace, and greatly enjoyed ’em personally. On the other hand, when I was at NAS Oceana for Cousin Reg’s CoC thing at the O-club (mentioned here more than once just recently), opinions on the self-styled “Sharkman of the Delta” at our table were decidedly, umm, mixed. Anyways.
Add on that at almost every. single. college foozball game, the most popular chant is now “Fuck Joe Biden”. That right there is some ‘Romanian Level” shit right there. And for those of you not in the historical aspect of things, Romania was a Communist Dictatorship, until it wasn’t.
Ordinally I don’t transcribe links or embed pitchers from posts I’m excerpting, since that would be hard and I’m fucking shiftless. But the pic that follows BCE’s last ‘graph is so compelling, so damned inspiring in light of the current sorry situation Real Americans now find themselves in, I just gotta make an exception this time.
PARIS (AP) _ Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu wept silently and his wife Elena begged for mercy as soldiers readied them for the firing squad, according to footage of their execution broadcast Sunday.
Extracts of the graphic 90-minute videotape were aired exclusively by the French television network TF1. They are the most detailed look yet at the execution Dec. 25 at a military base outside Bucharest. The Ceausescus were executed days after being toppled by a popular revolution.
″Don’t attack us 3/8 We have the right to die the way we want,″ Elena Ceausescu told soldiers and the 10-person civilian-military tribunal that sentenced the couple to death.
Nicolae Ceausescu, who ruled Romania with an iron fist for a quarter- century, struggled briefly with the soldiers but said nothing. Tears rolled down his cheeks.
Soldiers placed the couple, who were not blindfolded, against a brick wall and others rapidly opened fire, emptying their magazines. The Ceausescus crumpled under the bullets, which also peppered the brick wall.
A medic then looked for signs of life in the eyes of Elena Ceausescu as blood poured from her head. He found none.
Does it get any better than that? Yes. Amazingly, yes.
The cameraman recording the execution was accidentally wounded, said TF1 journalist Patrick Bourrat.
Okay, I officially got chills here. I mean, really, now: two despotic, heartless, mass-murdering monsters taken down by popular revolt and put up against the wall for a first-class, express-ticket ride on the Hot Rails to Hell for a face-to-face confab with their Dark Master…PLUS, some journoweasel contracts hisself a slight case of lead poisoning in the bargain TOO? My cup runneth over, people.
While I ease down off the singularly delightful high brought on by the idea of certain Mordor on the Potomac demon-spawned orcs being treated to a similar fate in the quite-near future, do click on over for the rest of BCE’s sage advice. I’ll be back once I get the mess my spontaneous orgasm created all over the desk and chair sponged up.
Nobody trolls ’em like Trump.
A raging mob of Culture Jihadists successfully removed a massive statue of Robert E. Lee in Richmond, Virginia. The crowd cheered, “Black Lives Matter” as crews literally cut the giant statue in half.
Following is a statement from President Trump about the great evil that happened in Virginia today:
Just watched as a massive crane took down the magnificent and very famous statue of “Robert E. Lee On His Horse” in Richmond, Virginia. It has long been recognized as a beautiful piece of bronze sculpture. To add insult to injury, those who support this “taking” now plan to cut it into three pieces, and throw this work of art into storage prior to its complete desecration.
Robert E. Lee is considered by many Generals to be the greatest strategist of them all. President Lincoln wanted him to command the North, in which case the war would have been over in one day. Robert E. Lee instead chose the other side because of his great love of Virginia, and except for Gettysburg, would have won the war. He should be remembered as perhaps the greatest unifying force after the war was over, ardent in his resolve to bring the North and South together through many means of reconciliation and imploring his soldiers to do their duty in becoming good citizens of this Country.
Our culture is being destroyed and our history and heritage, both good and bad, are being extinguished by the Radical Left, and we can’t let that happen! If only we had Robert E. Lee to command our troops in Afghanistan, that disaster would have ended in a complete and total victory many years ago. What an embarrassment we are suffering because we don’t have the genius of a Robert E. Lee!
Heh. Good one, Mr President-In-Exile, sir. After today’s godawful events, a slight rejiggering of Archie and Edith‘s famous ditty is in order: Mister, we could use a man like
Herbert Hoover Robert E Lee again…
Gauntlet: THROWN. Line in the sand: DRAWN. Ball: DROPPED. Tune: CALLED. Situation: PEAR SHAPED.
Ladies and germs, the fecal matter has officially come into direct physical contact with the rotary impeller.
Start your engines and strap in tight; from here on out, we’re in for one HELL of a wild ride.
BREAKING: Biden Rages At Unvaccinated Americans During Angry Speech; Says He’s “Frustrated” As He Enforces New Mandates
On Thursday, Joe Biden further divided the nation by saying that he “understands” the anger and frustration towards Americans who are weary of the vaccine. He then doubled down and blamed the unvaccinated for all the covid-related problems in our country.
“Our patience is wearing thin,” Biden threatened. “Your refusal has cost all of us”, he added.
He then stoked more anger against the unvaccinated, saying that 200 million Americans+ are “frustrated” with Americans who have decided not to get vaccinated.
Biden said the vaccinated are doing the “right thing”, implying that the unvaccinated are doing the “wrong thing”, putting a target on the back of 80 million Americans.
At another point, Biden told the unvaccinated to “be prepared to pay.”
Well, somebody is gonna pay for this, yeah. We’ll find out who it ends up being soon enough, fuckface.
Honestly though, I must confess that Occupation Government El Jefe Faux Jaux Biden made several statements today with which—UNEXPECTED!!!™—I am in complete agreement (in bold):
“What more is there to wait for? What more do you need to see? We’ve made vaccinations free, safe, and convenient,” Biden continued. “We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us,” Biden intoned.
“Free, safe, and convenient?” Well, one out of three (free, that would be) ain’t bad, and marks a tremendous improvement on Jaux’s usual ratio. But yeah, patience has definitely worn thin for a lot of us out here, and it’s nearly impossible to find any reason to stay our hand. Jaux’s explicit threat to use authority which the federal junta in no legal sense possesses, in order to bend the arms of defiant free-state governors *cough cough DeSantis cough cough* up between their shoulder blades should they refuse to immediately bend the knee was a nice touch, too.
He also issued a veiled threat to Republican governors who have resisted imposing tyrannical measures on their constituents. “If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic, I’ll use my power as president to get them to,” he said.
The US Constitution grants the president no such power. Lucky for ol’ Jaux, said Constitution has long since been rendered null and void. But hark! Do mine ears perceive the faint stirrings of resistance from unlikely, long-slumbering corners?
Biden’s draconian mandate on employers has inspired some pointed responses from Republicans.
Yawn. Who the fuck cares. You want “pointed” from a Repub, there’s but one place to bother looking for it. And it assuredly is not Vichy GOPers like Kevin McRINO.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded to Biden’s draconian mandates during a press conference Thursday afternoon.
“How could we get to the point in this country where you would not let them earn a living because of their choice on the vaccine? I just think that’s fundamentally wrong. I do not believe that people should lose their jobs over this issue, and we will fight that,” he said.
“I just think that the more this becomes coercive, where people have threatened mandates, and firing, and business consequences, the more he does that, the more people it alienates,” DeSantis added. “I do not believe people should lose their jobs over this issue, and we will fight that.”
DeSantis went on to say that he didn’t think the White House had the authority to impose a rule like that on employers.
“We would obviously support protections for people who just want to earn a living,” he said.
And with that sweet, sweet DeSantis-trademark defiance—I WILL NOT COMPLY, JOE, AND YOU CAN GO AND FUCK YOURSELF—America’s Governor yet again makes it clear that, one way or another, all freedom-loving Real Americas are going to wind up relocating to the Sunshine State for the last desperate stand. But hark! again. Do mine ears perceive another roar of defiance? Why yes, I believe they do.
JD Vance calls for mass civil disobedience in response to Biden's mandates.
"Do not comply with the mandates. Do not pay the government fines. Don’t allow yourself to be bullied & controlled. Only mass civil disobedience will save us from Joe Biden’s naked authoritarianism." pic.twitter.com/ORG0DNr49t

Well said, JD, and right on the button. There’s been a groundswell of disapproval and distrust for Vance of late in certain Alt-American quarters for various reasons, some of which I can maybe understand. But I can’t honestly say I concur with that; I have no real problem with JD myself, and Lord knows he’s on the beam on this one. Meanwhile, Tyler Durden puts a little meat on the bare bones above for us.
- Biden to require ‘vast majority’ of federal workers and contractors to get vaccinated or test weekly
- Biden expected to ask Labor Department for for rule on mandatory vaccinations
- ‘Some’ exemptions for disability, religion
- Psaki refuses to answer ‘my body, my choice’ question over vaccinations
Update (1452ET): President Biden will speak at 5pm ET, where he is expected to announce what’s already been leaked – that most federal workers and contractors will be required to get vaccinated after a 75-day ‘ramp-up’ period. If workers decline to receive shots in that time frame, they will be subject to termination.
“We would like to be a model for what we think other business and organizations should do around the country,” said White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
Further, Biden is expected to announce that the Department of Labor will compel employers with over 100 workers to mandate vaccines, or weekly testing.
Employers who don’t abide by the new policy will face “substantial fines up to nearly $14,000 per violation,” according to a senior Biden official (via PBS). What’s more, Biden will require health care workers at hospitals which take Medicare and Medicaid to be vaccinated – impacting over 17 million workers.
As resistance to President Biden’s booster-shot push grows, it appears the administration is – just as we expected – upping the pressure on federal workers who haven’t yet been vaccinated – while asking private businesses to do the same. According to CNN, the Biden Admin will no longer allow workers to get tested weekly instead of taking the vaccine. Instead, he’s signing an executive order Thursday requiring all workers to get the vaccine or face indefinite suspension.
What’s more, Biden’s order will extend to employees of government contractors. Per CNN, the same standard will be extended to employees of contractors who do business with the federal government. The Department of Defense, the Department of Veterans Affairs, Indian Health Service and National Institute of Health will also complete their previously announced vaccination requirements, which the White House believes has covered 2.5MM people.
This marks a significant escalation since earlier in the summer, when Biden unveiled a requirement that federal workers be vaccinated, but allowed for those who opted out to be subject to stringent mitigation measures like weekly tests.
And that, folks, is a wrap for America That Was.
As is his wont, Biden’s statement was shot through with falsehood after deception after misdirection, all of it provably and entirely untrue, from the first word to the last. Construction of the House Of Covid—a prison, more correctly, its foundation bricked with lies from its very inception—is now finished. It lacks only its assigned complement of NonVaxxed inmates to be complete. It must be burned to the ground by Patriots instead, without further ado.
With this undeniably tyrannical Imperial Decree, whoever is manipulating the marionette strings that make Biden’s mouth move opened fire on Ft Sumter, so to speak. The final curtain has dropped on the ragged remnants of freedom; whatever few tattered, torn scraps that still remained of our long-since-defunct Constitution have been set alight to burn away forever. We have examined and analyzed and discussed it long and passionately, here and elsewhere, over and again. Today, the discussion has well and truly ended. Today, the time has come when every American must make that most grim of choices, in close consultation with his own conscience and courage, each for himself. Will I resist, or will I comply? Will I fight to reassert my precious liberty? Or will I shirk my duty to myself and my posterity by accepting the bit of tyranny, staining the noble legacy of my Forefathers with the shameful, cowardly taint of surrender?
This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty towards the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation?
For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth—to know the worst and to provide for it. I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House?
Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation—the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motives for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies?
No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer on the subject? Nothing.
We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves longer.
Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament.
Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope.
If we wish to be free—if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending—if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak—unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?
Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.
The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable—and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come!
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, “Peace! Peace!”—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
Patrick Henry – March 23, 1775
If anyone has ever said it better or more movingly than that brilliant and indomitable giant among men, I certainly haven’t heard about it. And if those words fail to stir your blood and inflame your very soul with the will to stand against the mightiest imaginable foe, to either live in freedom at all and any cost or to perish with honor in the pursuit of it, then you damned sure ain’t no countryman of mine.
Aesop has a little something to say in response to last night’s response to Sefton’s response to…well, you get the idea.
Having people, anyone, even those firmly on our side, calling for “MOAR ELECTIONS! VOTE HARDERER!!” is like watching a Spelling Bee at the Special Olympics, with the soundtrack provided by Retarded Kids’ Nails On A Chalkboard.
WHAT THE BLISTERING HELL IS IT GOING TO TAKE BEFORE PEOPLE UNFUCK THEMSELVES, SMELL THE COFFEE, AND WAKE THE FUCK UP?!?!?
Asking for 100,000,000 friends and neighbors.
Well, not so long ago I figured it would be gun-banning and -confiscation that was going to do it. After further reflection, I can to believe that the spark that would finally set off the powder keg was more likely to be widespread hunger. Currently, it feels to me more like (Not)Vaxx mandates, passports, and “Green Zone” camps will be the long-anticipated Final Straw. Honestly, though, we’re all deeply into SWAG territory at this point, where the flip of aa coin is about as likely to provide the correct answer as I am, or anybody else for that matter.
We tried the bloodless ballot-box revolution, so beloved of this nation the entirety of the time we were an actual constitutional republic. Now, however, we are manifestly neither of those things.
The other side decided the time had come, finally, to preclude that option. You think they’re going to give you a second chance on that, EVER?
The Other Side made the choice to end honest elections. On their heads be the consequences. Or hopefully, around their necks. And once a nation crosses that Rubicon, there is no other way out of what follows.
The only way this nightmare ends, EVER, is with rivers of blood, and mountains of skulls.
Ours. Or Theirs.
I vote for Theirs. I’m sentimental like that.
Seconded, with gusto, right down to the last syllable of it.
That said, though, I feel I ought to to offer a small caveat to all and sundry. To wit: NONE of us should ever make the mistake of assuming he has gleaned full and certain knowledge concerning what another of us is doing, is not doing, or might soon be doing, merely from reading a blog post.
Speaking strictly for myself here, although I resolved from the long-ago day this humble blog declared itself open for business that I was going to be completely candid and truthful in everything I wrote here, that commitment nonetheless does NOT mean that my every last opinion, idea, or deed will be chronicled on CF. In these days of Fedposters (or, as Expat hilariously dubs such vermin, “Glow-niggers”) skulking about everywhere—a time when every one of us is also under constant physical surveillance, being recorded, tracked, and logged under the ever-watchful Eye of Sauron every minute of our day—it is at best tactically unwise to helpfully provide The Enemy with any scrap of intel on your movements and activities he hasn’t already hoovered up.
CF Lifers probably feel as if, after years of choking down the swill dished out hereabouts, they know me pretty well. They’re not entirely wrong about that—but no, they don’t know EVERYTHING about me. They can’t, if for no other reason than that “everything” isn’t posted here, and in fact couldn’t possibly be. Even if I did want to put it all up for public perusal and discussion (which I assure you I do NOT), fact is that “everything” is just way too big to fit on a blog, no matter how comprehensive, ambitious, and/or narcissistic a blog it is.
Assuming you have full knowledge of what actions anyone is, has, or will be taking based only on a blogwriter’s posts is, as I said, a mistake—a damned stupid one at that, since the perpetrator could easily have avoided making it via the simple expedient of a moment’s careful thought. The mistake is compounded by its utter uselessness for our side, moreso by the potential usefulness it offers to our adversary, and most of all by one simple truth: thath
Especially in the blogosphere, especially in these increasingly parlous times, none of us can afford to be careless about the information we put out there for anyone with an internet connection to discover. Being too cavalier, too inattentive, too profligate with accurate, detailed intel on what you’re up to awards a tangible and quite valuable advantage to an enemy that is already well ahead on that score. Believe me, The Enemy needs no assistance whatever from you. So don’t give him any.
Much as it pains me to say, it’s time for us to consider what we’re willing to publicly say, how we say it, and above all, who’s listening in. No, I’m not advocating harsh self-censorship, exactly. Neither am I suggesting we all start taking counsel of our fears, mellowing our rhetoric, or God forbid, standing down altogether and just accepting defeat. We absolutely must remain open, forthright, and bold in both word and deed, now more than ever before.
But these times also require that we be realistic, wily, and fully awake to both the risks we run and the capabilities of our enemy. Things are escalating rapidly, the stakes getting higher, the situation becoming so fluid and unpredictable it’s ever more difficult to accurately assess. This is the time to be smart about all this, to be frank with ourselves about the approaching confrontation. It is assuredly NOT the time to be hanging any targets on our own backs out of impatience or inattention. Let’s none of us be showing The Enemy any more of our cards from here on out. If he is to gain the final victory over us, then let’s by God make damned sure he has to earn it—and that the price of victory is painfully exorbitant.
Literally, physically painful, I mean.
