Spicy Time cometh?

Interesting stuff indeed, regarding the raid that never happened, to seize those servers that didn’t exist, owned by that company which doesn’t even have an office anywhere near there anyway.

General McInerney: US Military Personnel Killed in Frankfurt CIA Server Farm Raid
Start at minute 42 for Gen. McInerney’s account of the US military seizure of the CIA’s server farm in Frankfurt, Germany. While he is still waiting for secondary confirmation, he states that some US military personnel were killed in this operation.

DRenegade puts some questions he says need to be addressed, and he couldn’t be righter about that. Further backup:

Jeffrey Prather (JeffreyPrather.com) is a former DIA intelligence analyst, former DEA investigations officer, served on the B Team of special operations forces, and is now an intelligence analyst working to save America from its enemies, both foreign and domestic. Since the rigged election took place, Prather has been publishing podcasts that offer analysis of what’s happening behind the scenes in Washington D.C., covering deep state operators, the Dept. of Defense, SOCOM, JSOC, SOF-dark and also looking closely at Trump’s strategy for defeating the deep state.

Like many patriots, Prather has also been targeted for destruction by the deep state, but he survived the attempts and is serving his country now as a civilian analyst with decades of experience of how the system really works.

I was able to connect with Prather yesterday, and we filmed this extremely timely and powerful interview that you definitely don’t want to miss. Some of the highlights from the interview:

  • Confirms that multiple raids on the servers of vote rigging systems were conducted, in three countries.
  • Confirms that the NSA has hard evidence on treasonous actors, and that this evidence is likely being leveraged by Trump’s people.
  • Confirms that Trump can use the NDAA, combined with the Sep. 12, 2018 Executive Order, to declare domestic treasonous actors as “enemy combatants.”
  • Says that the DoD and patriots inside the DIA have everything they need to defeat the deep state.
  • Says Trump will be President on January 21st.
  • Warns that the transition from information warfare to conventional (kinetic) warfare may happen very soon.
  • Warns that the left-wing backlash against Trump’s victory will result in bloodshed that cannot be avoided.
  • Says that Leftists are greatly underestimating the capabilities and resolve of the American people in the context of domestic warfare that’s likely to unfold.

Thriller update! Andrea Widberg says it all reads “like a Tom Clancy novel.” She ain’t wrong about that.

I have no idea whether this raid happened. Its having taken place, however, is consistent with my ruminations about Trump’s peculiarly-timed shake-up at the Pentagon: Firing defense secretary Mark Esper and replace him with Christopher Miller, a special forces man; moving special forces into their own command, rather than having them function as subsets of other military branches; and firing potentially disloyal members of the civilian Defense Policy Board. These actions indicated that Trump was clearing the decks for something big.

Mike Adams, who writes at Natural News (which I once thought was a health food newsletter, not a conservative internet news outlet), dropped a bombshell, claiming there was a deadly firefight in Frankfurt between special forces and CIA operatives:

As you know by now, the DoD launched a raid on a CIA-run server farm in Frankfurt, Germany, to secure servers that contain proof of CIA interference with the 2020 election (i.e. backdoor manipulations of election results via Dominion voting machines). But new information is now surfacing that indicates there was a firefight at the server farm facility, involving US Army Special Forces units, engaging with CIA-trained paramilitary units that were flown in from Afghanistan in an emergency effort to defend the facility.

One CIA officer was killed during the firefight, and he is now being reported across the mainstream media as being “killed in Somalia.” Five US Army soldiers were also killed, and they are being explained away as dying in a “helicopter crash” in Egypt.

Despite the deaths, the servers were successfully acquired by the DoD, and those servers were turned over to President Trump’s private intelligence group, which is now once again led by Gen. Michael Flynn, recently pardoned and now allowed to process top secret information, since his security clearance has been restored.

Is it me, or does that sound just like a military-techno thriller? That doesn’t mean, though, that it’s untrue. After all, if I hadn’t lived through the coup attempt against Trump, the tech tyrants’ censorship against conservatives from the president on down, and the general lunacy of 2020, but had instead read all that in a book, I would have pronounced the book too far-fetched.

Additional corroboration for Adams’ report comes from Lt. General Thomas McInerney, who did an interview with the WVW Broadcast Network. During the interview, he stated (beginning at 41:45) that he too had heard reports about events in Germany.

In sum, McInerney said that “The Kraken” is the nickname of the 305th military intelligence battalion; that The Kraken identified China, Iran, and Russia as being involved in using the Hammer & Scorecard system to manipulate American votes; that the servers used for this were in a CIA facility in Frankfurt; that special forces raided the facility; and that there were casualties – in other words, exactly what Mike Adams reported.

I’m being a bit careful about accepting McInerney’s statements at face value. Even recognizing Wikipedia’s leftist bias, it’s clear that McInerney, who had an illustrious military career that included intelligence work, can let his emotions get ahead of his filter when he speaks.

Having said that, McInerney introduced Americans to the possibility that “Hammer and Scorecard” were used to game the election. While Leftists promptly denounced the program as a “hoax,” Navid Keshavarz-Nia, whom the Sunday New York Times once promoted as “always the smartest person in the room” and who is a renowned intelligence specialist, confirms that it is real.

In trying to determine whether McInerney was speaking accurately, there’s one more point in his favor: The other person who appeared during that interview was General Michael Flynn, who headed America’s military intelligence operations. Flynn vouched for his “friend” McInerney.

In light of A) the CIA’s deep involvement in Spygate; B) the Company’s long history of interfering in foreign national elections all across the globe; and C) the implacable hostility the Deep State establishment entire holds for Trump, it seems way more far-fetched to assume that they didn’t try to interfere in this one too.

Appeasement, then and now

Never go full Neville.

The Bell of Treason, by P.E. Caquet, is gripping but painful reading. It tells the story of the Munich deal from a viewpoint we rarely hear it: that of the Czechs. Instead of focusing on the fears of the French or the British, it shows us the steely resolve, and tragic patriotic fervor, of the liberty-loving Czechs. They could never believe that their allies would throw them under the bus. Nor did the German generals who plotted to overthrow Hitler rather than start a war they couldn’t win.

And that’s the point: The Germans were far too weak to win a war in 1938. They had fewer tanks than France, and most of them were inferior. They were incapable of blowing up Allied tanks, but vulnerable to their shells. The Luftwaffe at the time was more hype than reality. The U-boats that would later devastate British shipping still hadn’t been built.

Meanwhile the Czech military was almost half as strong as Germany’s. It had solid, realistic plans for resisting until the French could bail it out. English and French appeasers warned against massive German bombing of their cities — which wouldn’t even be possible for two more years. Powerful Czech fortresses guarded its mountainous borders. Poland was still unconquered, and posed a threat to the German rear. The Soviet Union hadn’t yet switched to ally itself with Hitler, and might have intervened.

In every way, the prospects of a war against Nazi Germany were better in 1938 than they’d prove in 1940, when Germany finally chose the moment to blitzkrieg its way into France. The much stronger Panzers that would roll then into Paris were made … in factories taken over from the Czechs, after Hitler’s bloodless conquest.

With all this in mind, I’d like my fellow patriots to consider: If this vote fraud was real, and leading Democrats are really so disdainful of democracy, is the time for taking extraordinary means to stop them now? Or once they fully control the U.S. military, the FBI, the NSA, the CIA, the IRS and the Secret Service? Once the last flickers of free speech have flickered out on social media, and the last cable network switched sides, as Fox News just did? Once courts have essentially nullified the Second Amendment, and millions of our timid neighbors have dutifully turned in their guns? Once ANTIFA expands into every American city?

Just read this catalog of tyrannical, punitive measures prominent Trump opponents have called for even before the election has been settled.

Appeasement doesn’t prevent a war. It just postpones it. Abandoning your allies and champions is a great way to ensure that you’ll fight alone.

And what do we do if God forbid we learn that the voter fraud was all too real, but can’t prove it in time to stop a gang of thieves from constitutionally taking power? I really don’t have answer to this last one. I hope Donald Trump does. 

Actually, we all DO have the answer, and most of us are well aware of what it entails. But reluctance to wage war until there is simply no other alternative is a most human trait; even though it can exact a steep toll, it isn’t entirely a bad thing. Clinging to denial and self-deception until reality brings us face to face with the brutal truth is a story as old as Time itself.

GOPe circular firing squad gathers

Looks like some of them ARE getting right back to business as usual.

For a good long while, many Republicans believed Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham would produce a slew of indictments for the bad actors of the Russia probe. A bushel of bad news always sat just around the corner for James Comey, James Clapper, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and many others.

Judgement day, however, kept getting postponed. The trove of sealed indictments always seemed to slide just beyond arm’s reach. In the meantime, the Republican Party went P. T. Barnum on Bill Barr, fundraising on the promise of revenge against a whole host of ne’er-do-wells.

But after a year-and-a-half of imminent indictments, and a lot of fundraising, it became more than evident that the Barr-Dunham probe which provided so much chum for right-wing waters was pure grift. The “deep state” goon squad would never see the inside of a prison cell. 

Not because they were exonerated, or blameless. Nor was it because a good case against them wasn’t made, or makeable. It was because the fix was in. That hardly serves as an affirmation of the integrity of the system. Quite the opposite, actually.

Then another investigation came along. One that sparked the hopes of millions of Trump supporters still reeling from an election night gone wrong, one that started off just as promising as the Barr-Durham probe.

Amid a series of irregularities and apparent voter fraud, Sidney Powell, a former federal prosecutor and a member of Trump’s legal team for the election, leaped onto the scene, guns blazing. Just like Barr.

Bear with me just a bit further, gang; he’s about to go way wrong, you’ll see.

The issue with Powell was never that fraud didn’t occur or that she was making it up out of whole cloth, but that her claims are so extraordinary that they would threaten to discredit the case for real fraud if they turned out to be exaggerated or in any way untrue. There are many compelling examples of irregularities involving mail-in ballots, ejected poll observers, and more that are worthy of serious investigating.

But Powell has set the bar so incredibly high above those things now. This is not to say that there is not or could not be some basic truth to some of her claims, but that it is dangerous to build the case for fraud entirely on one person’s shoulders. As a result, “belief” in Powell has become a kind of purity test for some Trump supporters, creating internecine conflicts at the drop of a hat. It’s also preventing the Trump movement from performing any kind of introspection on what might have been some of the campaign’s mistakes.

Codswallop. If fraud was committed—and it couldn’t be more apparent that it was, with an abundance of credible evidence confirming it—then “introspection” and “mistakes” aren’t relevant.

If Powell’s claims are all true, then there would be no need to consider that perhaps it was a mistake to court rather than tackle the corporate and tech forces now garroting Trump’s last-ditch efforts. If Powell is right, there is no reason to criticize the Trump campaign’s racial-spoils pandering, its failure to keep signature platform promises, or its critical personnel problems. Because the only problem will have been, according to her, that as many as 10 million fraudulent votes and up to 7 million votes were switched from Trump to Biden. The unexpected side effect of all this is an unremittingly uncritical movement that will circle the wagons to defend the most poisonous pills in the White House and viciously attack those who are otherwise allies. Powell’s moment in the limelight is reminding us of the dangers of personality cults.

“Personality cults”? Well, okay then.

Now, as the recent spate of Powell skeptics or debunkers go, the above is actually mild stuff. This guy is more even-handed and polite about it than many others have been, let’s just concede that right up front. Even so, it still gripes me, although possibly not for the reasons you might assume. Let’s start with this.

I don’t have that evidence, but the fact that Sidney Powell claims she does is enough to convince me. This is a woman who gave up years of income she could have earned in her profitable practice to write, print, and promote a book no publisher would touch. Its charges were too explosive, I imagine.

Its targets, like Andrew Weissman (the protege of FBI director Christopher Wray) wield too much power. Tellingly, none of the people Powell exposed in Licensed to Lie have dared to sue her for defamation or libel. She put herself out there as a target for such a suit by writing the book—with no publishing house’s attorneys on board to defend her. But no one did, I’m sure because her charges were absolutely truthful.

Non-partisan legal expert Jonathan Turley is one of the few reliable commentators left out there. He observed after watching the press conference that Powell and the rest of the president’s team took a similar risk today. They accused a massive corporation, Dominion, with links to friendly billionaires like Soros and many foreign governments, of felonies. Of colluding with corrupt election officials to steal the White House.

Given the death threats to election officials in Michigan, and the doxing of their children, for refusing to certify a corrupt election, I’d say Ms. Powell is risking a lot more than money.

But there Sidney stood fearlessly on television, her voice quavering a little at the enormity of the evil she has helped to uncover. Meanwhile the Vichy-conservatives over at National Review and other “squish” venues sniped at her, and at Rudolph Giuliani, who faced down the hitmen of the New York Mafia, then broke its back. One called the Trump team “unhinged,” and sniffed at its lack of “dignity.”

If you think your country’s elections are being stolen, and your main concern is for keeping your “dignity,” then I don’t want you next to me in a foxhole. You’ll switch sides if the enemy offers a chocolate bar, and a chance to save your skin.

Getting closer, but still not quite there yet. More, and closer still:

Imagine that fairly high-ranking government officials, former mayors and prosecutors, hold a press conference accusing the Joint Chiefs of Staff of planning to shoot down an American airliner. They say the plan is to blame China, Russia, or Cuba.

Immediately they are depicted as nuttier than a Christmas fruitcake. Legacy media paints them as fabulists looking for book deals. Psychologists speculate on their sanity. Social media doubles down on purges. It’s almost like there was a Zoom call to coordinate it all.

Undaunted, the self-described whistleblowers offer even bolder claims in interviews. They say the Joint Chiefs will set off bombs in Washington, D.C. and other U.S. cities. Canada and U.S. bases abroad will be attacked. It’s described as a “very well-funded” operation with CIA involvement.

There are mentions of original documents and check stubs proving payoffs. We’re told to expect more details by the end of this week.

Americans split into factions. The conspiratorial say this is only the beginning and Jeff Bezos and the Post Office and Bill Gates are in on it. MSNBC veers between ignoring the claims and screeching about Nazis. The rival political party starts muttering about criminal charges for treason. Fans of Enemy of the StateWag the Dog, or Three Days of the Condor keep an open mind. Wasn’t Burt Lancaster that Joint Chiefs guy in Seven Days in May who tried a coup?

This is a little like the situation we find ourselves in when evaluating claims of a massive operation to steal the election for Joe Biden.

If we were told that boxes of ballots for Biden were carted into Philadelphia inner-city precincts at 3 a.m., that would be easy to believe. Or if we were told that Republican observers were prevented from observing and that windows are boarded up in Detroit. We’ve seen the videos despite our increasingly irate Silicon Valley overseers threatening us with the lash.

But attorneys Sidney Powell and Lin Wood are not stopping there. They say perhaps 10 million fake votes were generated. They argue that the rot is global. In an interview two days ago, Powell said there was “foreign interference in our election” including from “China, Iran, Serbia, Lichtenstein.” Powell said “the CIA, I’m sure, has a hand in it.” She said to expect a lawsuit by the end of this week.

These allegations raise the stakes. They transform suspicions of Chicago-style fraud into an existential national crisis. If their claims about national-scale computerized fraud are true, democracy in the republic is over. The fix is in. Elections are a sham. Our ruling elite select the winner, and complainers get the camps.

Yep, almost there now. JJ brings us onto the porch and rings the bell:

If anyone doubts that there is not a Globalist plot to take America down, especially in light of what we and this President have experienced these past four to 20 years and really since the end of the Second World War, then please describe the bumps on your sigmoid as you have your head up your ass. If Sidney Powell is guilty of anything, it’s perhaps fighting the right battle but at the wrong time. That is unless she really does have the Kraken of all evidence ready to be released. I hope she does. In any case, my anger is not at her, nor at Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis or anyone else on the Trump Team. My incandescent rage that can never be slaked is at the traitors and the Enemy for snuffing out the last vestige of this republic and for those allegedly on our side who are their willing accomplices. Worst of the bunch are the state legislators and other GOP politicians in the six states that know firsthand that the Enemy stole their elections and should be convening right now to assign their electors to Trump. There is no excuse for that, threats of violence or not. This is a war now, and we are this close to an open shooting war, and considering the firebombing of several dozen cities over the past six months, arguably we’re at that stage already.

Whatever happens with Sidney Powell’s case, she is the very last person I am ever going to attack. For me, her motivations, if not perhaps (as remains to be seen) her strategy, are beyond reproach. Until you (the royal you) show me the proof – as you have demanded of her – that she is anything but a great patriot, I’m with her all the way. Because we are going to need an army of Sidney Powell’s should worse come to worse.


Dingdingdingdingding! We’re home, everybody!

See, it’s like this: I don’t give a tinker’s dam whether Powell is exaggerating, or grandstanding, or stoking her own ego, or just dead wrong. I don’t care if she’s stretching the truth a mite, if she has some of her details jumbled, or if she’s being misled in some fashion. Honestly, she could be making the whole thing up for all I give a shit. I’ll still stand shoulder to shoulder with her against our common enemy, be he a rabid Lefty loon, a Democrat-Socialist con artist, or a NeverTrumpTard Vichy Republican. I’m on her side no matter what, and Cadaver Joe Biden, Commie Kamala, and every last Enemedia propagandist can all go piss up a rope. Likewise Bill Kristol, Ewan McMuffin, David French, Mitt Romany, and the whole sorry lot of ’em.

The Enemy closes ranks when attacked, no matter what. We, on the other hand, natter and obssess over trivia, personality conflicts, and general persiflage. We bog ourselves down in niggling “debate” as if our very way of life wasn’t on the line here. We respond to direct frontal assault with over-intellectualizing and parlor pedantry. Then we kill our wounded, apologize for our beastly shortcomings, and slink off the field in ignominious retreat.

No Vichy GOPer ever yet found a hill that was worth dying on. For our side, “living to fight another day” always seems to take precedence over kicking the enemy’s ass up between his fucking shoulder blades. Because we’re “better than they are.” Because we must always “take the high road.” Because “that’s not who we are.”

The Enemy is making war. We’re making tea and crumpets. Bottom line:

What Trump, like Caesar, understands is that he can’t back down from this fight, even should he wish to. During his long campaign in Gaul, Caesar made it a point never to retreat; on one occasion when even the famed 10th Legion temporarily broke ranks during a battle, the chagrined legionaries asked their commander to decimate their ranks for cowardice. (Caesar refused.)

Trump similarly grasps that to stand down now, even in the face of overwhelming opposition—some of it coming from within his own ranks—would spell an ignominious end to his presidency and demoralize his voting legions. To leave an open question of whether our porous and multifarious systems of voting are easily manipulated and therefore untrustworthy would be to do the nation a great disservice.

As we’ve seen throughout the past four years, appeasement doesn’t work. No matter what the duly elected president of the United States did, there was no satisfying the rabid left and its media lackeys, short of Trump’s expulsion from office, however effected.

And so they mounted one of the strangest counter-campaigns in U.S. political history, rigging their nomination process to spit forth a superannuated, lifelong political hack rushing headlong into his embarrassing dotage and installing as his vice president the dangerous woman they really wanted to head their ticket, but who couldn’t garner any support during the primaries. It’s a breathtakingly cynical ploy, and a stain on American political history should it succeed.

So please, Mr. President, fight all the way to the end. Until these cases get to court—the big one, located right behind the Capitol—and your augments can be heard over the talking heads and the chattering classes, go on national television and explain to the American people what the stakes really are: not your political survival, but the survival of the Republic itself under a Constitution the left increasingly and openly despises.

Just so. Oh, and about that whackadoo conspiracy theory Normal American mentioned, wherein the JCOS plotted to down an American airliner for their own nefarious purposes? Silly stuff, I know, and it does kinda put Sydney Powell’s reckless, baseless allegations in a somewhat dimmer light. Right?

RIGHT?!?

Back to our whistleblowers’ claims of false flag attacks on an airliner and Washington, D.C. It might sound like a half-baked conspiracy theory.

But it would have been true. In 1962, the Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed shooting down an American civilian airliner, bombing D.C., and other false flag actions. It was called Operation Northwoods. President Kennedy rejected the proposal. He was assassinated the next year.

Then and now, extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. The kraken remains elusive.

Perhaps. But for me, proof no longer matters. I know who the enemy is; I know what he is, what he intends, how he will use the power he’s usurped. I care about one thing now, and one thing alone: annihilating him. I won’t hesitate to employ any and every weapon I can get my hands on—large or small, clean or dirty, fair or unfair, honorable or sneaky—that will help to get that job done. If Sydney Powell is such a weapon then I’m all for her, and straight to hell with all other considerations. If not, I’ll look for another.

How to put down an insurrection

If you chance upon a Rubicon, it must be crossed.

In the closing days of 2020 AD, the American media has declared that Donald Trump’s term as president is finished. As the leader of the deplorables faction, Trump has many enemies among the elite irates, and as soon as he leaves office, these enemies plan to bury him in litigation. Bill Pascrell, the Chairman of the House Ways & Means Subcommittee on Oversight, has officially called for the prosecution of President Trump for “government crimes” following his term in office. In his thirst for vengeance, Pascrell has made it clear there will be no Nixonian escape by pardon:

Donald Trump, along with his worst enablers, must be tried for their crimes against our nation and Constitution. Any further abuse of the sacred pardon power to shield criminals would itself be obstruction of justice, and any self-pardons would be illegal.

Like Caesar, Trump now must fight for victory or lose everything. Come January 2021, will Donald Trump decide to cast the die and cross the Rubicon? He might.

The same people who warned us that Trump is worse than Hitler will now scoff: “Donald Trump is no Caesar!” That’s true. Trump is in a much better position than Caesar was.

Unlike Caesar, Trump can cross the Rubicon legally. He need violate no sacred law. He has all of the legal power he needs to act and win. Congress has given it to him. All he needs to do is invoke the Insurrection Act.

Follows, a deep dive into the specifics of what the former Insurrection Act (now renamed “The Enforcement of the Laws to Restore Public Order Act”) says; the night it makes available for the POTUS to wield at his discretion; what “the militia” is and what role it might play in the Coming Unpleasantness; some related history and speculation; and much, much more. It’s all fascinating stuff, closing out thusly:

If I had told you last November that in the next 12 months the US would endure the worst pandemic since Spanish Flu, AND the worst depression since the Great Depression, AND the worst Constitutional crisis since the Civil War, AND the worst civil unrest since the summer of 1968, AND an unprecedented nation-wide lockdowns that led to the end of sports, bars, restaurants, movies, in-class attendance at school, and commuting to work, AND that it would culminate in the World Economic Forum announcing a Great Reset to the global economy to lock in this new normal, would you have believed me? No, you’d have laughed me off as a tinfoil nutjob. Yet here we are.

To repeat a statistic from earlier: 70% of Republicans think that the most recent election is illegitimate. In a functioning democracy, if 70% of the second-largest political party in the country thinks an election has been stolen, the elites come together to cooperate to investigate and restore legitimacy in the eyes of the voters.

In the US, that’s not happening. Instead, an enormous machine, consisting of tech oligopolies, liberal media, watchdog groups, and partisan activists, is doing everything it can to silence and suppress the dissenters. Simultaneously, this same machine is making enemy lists and actively declaring that when it wins, it will be taking vengeance, against Trump, against everyone who helped him, and against everyone who voted for him.

This is not a drill. This is where we are. If Trump is standing on the banks of the Rubicon, it’s because the leftist machine has purposefully widened the Rubicon River until it reaches his feet.

Clear-headed left-wingers — if there are any left — need to step in and deescalate the threats against Trump and his supporters, and listen to 70 million Americans clamoring for fair and fraud-free voting. There is still time.

Otherwise, as another great military leader put it, “when on death ground, you must fight.”

Not so sure there’s still time myself, I must say. With every passing day, the chance that this runaway train can be stopped or diverted to a less-perilous track looks ever smaller. But hey, maybe that’s just me.

Free helicopter rides for Commies

Normal American begs to differ with my “Amerizuela” post from last week, offering an alternative metaphor of his own.

Portland’s descent into blue-haired, gender-confused madness is something new in America. The city’s criminal justice system tolerates vandalism and assaults by communist thugs, while punishing normal Americans who dare to protect themselves.

Street commie antics in Washington, D.C. last weekend suggest this political rot is spreading. If we give anti-American Portlandesque district attorneys a bit more time, the scoundrels may turn a blind eye to more violent crimes as well. The arsonists are practicing.

Chile provides an example of how this could go. In the early 1970s, under the Marxist president Salvador Allende, Chile’s criminal justice system began ignoring crimes committed by commie street thugs.

“There were repeated violations of property rights in the form of ‘takeovers’ (illegal occupations) of rural, urban, and industrial properties,” says an exhaustive 1991 report commissioned by a later president of Chile. “In most of these cases the owners received no help in recovering their ownership nor were the perpetrators punished.” Police “found themselves administratively blocked from acting during the ‘takeovers.’”

Seattle’s small businesses who sued the city over the CHAZ/CHOP takeover know how this works. Democrat elites encouraged pinkos, rapists, and various malcontents to found their People’s Republic, at least until the rabble showed up at the mayor’s home. Then the malodorous “autonomous zone” got broken up and, one hopes, thoroughly hosed down.

The report on Chile’s troubles, known as the Rettig Report, says normal Chileans realized the Marxist government “was not protecting their rights and that when these rights were violated they could not find support in the police, the judiciary, the General Comptroller’s Office, and so forth.” As a result, “they concluded that the only defense was self-defense.”

Violence increased. There were assaults, kidnappings, and worse. “The murder of a MIR student by a Communist student on the campus of the University of Concepción was publicly declared to be a political problem rather than a criminal one and in fact no sanction was applied.” The commies expected to get away with their crimes.

Chilean journalists labored diligently to make things worse. They “went to incredible lengths to destroy the reputations of their adversaries.” Their “political enemies were being presented as contemptible” and “on a number of occasions there were open calls” for mass violence and murder.

Fortunately the U.S. is a more civilized place. We are fortunate not to have increasingly unhinged journalists spending their time threatening Trump supporters, labeling them “maggots,” and calling them “white supremacists.” If our media betters began to demonize half the country, there’s no telling how that could end.

Perhaps not. But I could come up with a suggestion or three easily enough, I think.

Be sure to read the rest of it. I went on from here to check around his joint a bit further, and it took no time at all to realize that the boy more than merited a spot in Ye Olde Blogrolle here. And so I have proceeded. Thanks for the head’s up there, NA, and keep up the good work.

The feel-good video of the century

Is the Rebellion too late? Or just in the nick of time?

In my favorite video, perhaps ever, a group of Buffalo-area New York business owners stood up to the unelected Erie County Health Department and Sheriff’s officers who came to shut down their meeting to plan how to survive the latest shutdown of “non-essential” businesses at a local gym, Athletes Unleashed.

Local state governments all over the United States have been dictating to small businesses how they can be open or if they can be open at all while allowing Walmart and Target to operate unmolested through the entire coronavirus pandemic. As a result, Walmart and other corporate businesses are making record profits while mom-and-pop shops go belly-up under the heavy weight of unfair regulations from unelected health officials who aren’t accountable to the people.

The people of Orchard Park, New York, have had enough and have finally done what I have been saying should have been done from the beginning. Tell the government to get the hell off your private property and to go get a signed warrant from a judge if they want to shut you down: then you can fight them in court. But simply obeying unconstitutional restrictions on liberty should no longer be an option.

It never WAS an option. “Fighting them in court”? Sorry, but that ain’t gonna be near enough either.

Study after study has shown that lockdowns hurt more people than they help and do not completely stop the spread of the highly contagious virus. If the grocery store can operate, so can a gym or a hair salon. It’s beyond time for a real movement of mass disobedience. Imagine ordering people to stop exercising for their “health!” It’s beyond absurd to close gyms and keep McDonald’s open because of a health crisis and it’s time for this idiocy to stop.

It’s time for the people to take their lives back. These business owners in Orchard Park did it exactly right. Watch this and be inspired. This makes me proud to be an American where we still have the greatest document on earth protecting us from tyranny if we would only use it.

Bless dear ol’ Megan’s heart, she nailed it one. As I’ve said so many times myself: the Constitution—brilliantly conceived as it most certainly is, a damned near flawless blueprint for proper governance, bequeathed to us by giants among mortal men—is nonetheless no more than words on paper in the end. Words require a lot of real-world backup if they’re ever to be anything more than mere ideas, ambitions, or pipe-dreams. They require reinforcement by a righteous, stout-hearted citizenry unswervingly committed to the cause of liberty to retain any meaning at all. The words can outlive the commitment by not a single moment; when the one thirsts, the other wilts.

Not only did the people kick the officers and the inspector out of the gym, but they walked them all the way off the private property. Well done. Stand up for your rights as a business owner and an American. No officer of the law or government agent has any business on your property without a warrant. Make copies of the Constitution available and post a sign that says, “Unless you want to buy something, law enforcement is not allowed on private property without a warrant. Take a pocket Constitution with you as you leave.”

Fuckin’ A right. It’s dismaying, frightening even, that such elemental concepts—the very foundation of our once-proud Republic, no less—have come to sound so radical, even extreme, to modern ears.

Warning order

A look at “the right-wing militia”—the REAL militia, that is, not the Enemedia boogieman—from somebody who knows a thing or two about a thing or two.

To elaborate further on the militia movement, as well as to provide a cautionary note to those on the Left planning violent insurrection in the US, I asked a pal to weigh in on his thoughts and direct experiences with American militias. He is former Army special forces and a former CIA operative/contractor who has fought on the ground in insurgencies all over the world throughout his career. He is in and around the militia movement and knows a LOT of people therein, as well as their motivations, training, experience, etc. Here is what the man known to a select few as “Spear One” had to say:

The American civil militia movement is the largest and best trained para-military force in the history of the world. The elements of which militias are compromised are as follows (Note: None of the below includes the small numbers of White Supremacist or Racist Groups.):

Veterans. There are large numbers of veterans that have learned of war, and especially unconventional war, during our long years pretending to fight the insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan (referred to as “Afghaniraq”). Their skills learned in the formal training and in operations and their informal (unconventional) training at the hands of the enemy (that operate from the manuals and training supplied to Iran, pre-Islamic Republic, by both the U.S. Army Special Forces and the CIA). These vets have labored through the worse run combat operations America has ever fostered due to poor leadership micro-managed directly from Washington (US political leadership is more attuned to the bleating of the Washington Post then the needs of their troops or the requirements that must be met to win any kind of war). This poor leadership was adversely amplified by Rules of Engagement that negated any possibility to win, or even break even, in counter-insurgency warfare. These vets, between repeated rotations back to Afghaniraq spent their time taking care of each other (as the military did not understand their needs or would spend precious budget on soldier “life-cycle” systems support to little effect. These vets are literally chomping at the bit to tear into an obvious enemy of the US, namely, the socialists and anyone simple-minded enough to carry the socialist banner. Add in NO ROE and learned practices by terminal control of the target populations as taught by the Iranian-led Iraqi and Afghan insurgents. During their time between deployments, these troops were buying 4-Wheel-Drive vehicles, world class sniper rifles, world class combat pistols and world class (semi-automatic) military quality light rifles – and practicing maintenance, marksmanship, and putting aside fairly large amounts of ammunition (close at hand at this moment).

Large numbers of retired Special Operations Forces (or those with expired terms of service) that are prepared and trained to organize and lead Civil Militia forces. Add to the veterans core the large numbers of talented folks who are combat engineers who are not only trained and experienced at building and fixing, but are inventive and talented at breaking anything placed in their way. One does not need explosives to conduct demolitions – heavy construction equipment, fire and good ol’ 7.62 ammo are better than adequate to destroy anything that needs “interdiction” to support the goals of a counter-insurgency. These folks are organizing right now, and many are in lock-step with their local sheriff’s office and nearby active military units. Let us not forget those special operations personnel that matriculated into the Intelligence Community. All of their skills lying dormant while in the military were exercised while with the IC. These folks know how to deal with anything the government dishes out.

Lots more pertinent info here from Spear One, who closes his analysis thusly:

A US civil militia is real; it is just waiting for things perpetrated in the streets by the Left to get to a tipping point, or a call from a congressional coalition or the President to commence action. They are forming now and vetting personnel. A few have initiated a few simple international operations and are ironing out the bumps in organization (they tend to be decentralized). Each Spec Ops NCO can train up and lead dozens, and upon linking up with other dozens can form large paramilitary formations. There is no fear factor – a civil war now to save the country from socialist takeover (and the subsequent turnover to globalist powers) overrides all life issues and is abetted by that pesky oath taken by those vets and those militia members upon enlistment and reenlistment. An oath that is not forgotten and an oath that will always be in effect until each patriot’s dying day: “… defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic …”

On a personal note, when I go to Arlington National Cemetery, I stand humbled before the eternal formation being stood by those who went before me. There is nothing I would not do to stay faithful to those heroes of our Republic. The least of them seems better than me, and I would do anything to measure up, and perhaps earn their respect after the fact. The current burgeoning domestic socialist threat has to be countered and in such a way as to make the point clear – Against All Enemies – period.

And one final warning from Stu, a US Navy lifer his own self:

“Spear One” provides us a REAL glimpse into the militia movement and its motivations, not the nonsense propagated by the agit-prop legacy media. These people are consummate patriots descended directly from the Founders, who are willing to lay everything on the line to defend, protect, and preserve our constitutional Republic. The patriotic militia movement will NOT let the Left’s brown shirts – Antifa and BLM – prevail. The brown shirts should think twice about inciting an insurrection because the result will not be what they think it will be.

Real Americans have cautioned, beseeched, even pleaded with Proggy to pay heed, all to no avail. As John says, three of the Four Boxes have failed us. And that ain’t good.

A failed voting system is a cancer on the Republic. The voting system is exactly the last system that can relieve pressure in politics.

That leaves only one box:

The Ammo Box.
The Founders wisely put free speech in the First Amendment. They put in an above-average justice system. They put in a voting system that minimized the spread of fraud – the Electoral College.

But they also put in place the Second Amendment, which had the purpose of being both a safety measure and a curb on government. The safety measure is that a populace who is armed feels safer – they will be measured in a response. The curb on government is the flip side of that coin: if you were going to do something that would put a substantial portion of your population to think that armed insurrection was a better idea than doing what the government said?

The government loses.

In this nation, the bulk of the American population is well-armed. A portion of it, veterans, are very well trained, perhaps better trained than the current members of the military. I know several people that compete regularly shooting things so far away that I can’t see them even if I’m wearing my glasses.

Understand that ending up at this stage is something that almost no one wants. We want freedom, peace, sound money, strong justice systems, and voting systems with unquestionable integrity.

But there’s always another alternative: the last of the Four Boxes.

Let’s hope we don’t have to go there.

Nobody who knows anything at all about such things wants to go there…yet somehow, here we all are anyway. Matt Bracken runs the whole thing down for us.

I discovered this series titled “What the Progressive Socialist Liberals Have in Store for Conservatives” only yesterday, and I read all six parts in a row non-stop (NOTE: links to the aforementioned six, part 1 of which I excerpted the other day, are included in Matt’s article—M). This is a masters-degree-level course on the history and lessons of government-sponsored genocide. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Some of the many embedded images are gut-wrenching, but this lecture series does not hold back any punches.

The hosting website permits you to save these lectures as PDF files, and I recommend that you do so. The powers-that-be in the coming years will not want people to be armed with this knowledge. This lecture series will be suppressed, count on it. Save it so that you can share it later, after it is disappeared down the memory hole.

KEY REMINDERS

  • “White Privilege” means “Scheduled for Genocide”.
  • “Diversity Officers” collect names, put them on lists.
  • Never permit yourself to be disarmed.
  • You need to be lethal, and not afraid to use a weapon.
  • “Door to door gun collection” means SHTF is about to happen.
  • All genocide originates from the wealthy leadership.
  • Stay away from crowds.
  • When ordered to report to mass collection points – run for the woods.
  • Your neighbors WILL turn you in.

TAKE AWAYS
The SHTF and CWII will happen because there is no one undoing the pre-genocidal preparations for it. As such, we can expect the following truths…

  • You will not know there is a full-on Civil War until you are in the midst of it.
  • The American Second Civil War (CWII) will be a genocidal event of enormous scale.
  • There will be an organized effort to disarm prior to the war. It may or may not happen.
  • The timetable for the war has already been established. It’s going to happen whether everything is in place or not.
  • The real danger of the progressive liberal army lies well hidden from public scrutiny. It is kept intentionally hidden. Just like in Rwanda, the conspirators held very secret meetings, and had secret handshakes, and shirts that they wore to identify each other. Chess pieces are moving into place.
  • Once your hands are tied and bound behind your back it will be too late.

Again: NO SANE PERSON WANTS THIS. It has been brought to our very doorstep anyway. So if war it must be—and it appears that it must—then WE MUST PREVAIL. History clearly tells us what awaits the vanquished when the Left seizes power, every single time it’s ever happened.

It must also be said: some things are worth fighting—and bleeding, and suffering, and even dying—for. But we should never fail to consider the proposition with utmost seriousness. It must be taken not just seriously, but gravely. Nor should we underestimate the enemy, in any way whatsoever: his commitment, his capabilities, his will to fight, and fight hard. Such cocksure presumption usually proves to be a costly error, often a fatal one.

This isn’t a game. It isn’t a joke, or some kind of put-on. As I’ve said so many times before: this is the real, the bad, and the scary. It won’t be fun. It won’t be easy. It won’t be quick. Once the balls drops, there’s absolutely no telling which way it’s going to bounce, how many times it bounces, or where it will come to rest.

Unless something suddenly changes, the last of Matt’s above Take Aways is likely the most important of them all to keep foremost in mind.

Arise all ye people!

On your feet or on your knees.

So, when people do that math and realize the survivability is over 99%, when they realize that they actually have a better chance of becoming a millionaire from a scratch off, do you think they may be ready to roll the dice with the virus to prevent losing everything they’ve ever worked for? I mean, the likelihood that your business will close down permanently without any customers is about the same percentage…about 99.9%. Restaurants and bars don’t seem to do well when they’re not serving food and slinging drinks. My barber tells me she can’t make any money without someone sitting in her chair. I was blown away. I couldn’t believe it when I heard that kids weren’t learning as much as a result of not being in school…that really shocked the hell out of me!

Suicides are going through the roof as people lose it all, kids aren’t able to report to their school counselor how their uncle is touching their pee pees or how their mom puts her cigarette out on their sister when she’s drunk…Yeah, child abuse and youth deaths are tragically becoming a part of this ‘new normal’ these progressives keep telling me I’m supposed to accept and I’ll have to get used to. Yeah, the ‘new normal’. The new normal that forced an immigrant woman to shut the doors on her newly opened business after she risked it all to flee her third world country to escape real oppression, and start her new life in the United States because we have a Constitution that guarantees her the protection from a tyrannical government, the promise of equality and the right to be free…do you think any of this weighs on the minds of these people giving the middle finger to radical power hungry liberal Democrats like Tim Walz in Minnesota or Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan?

When Americans realize that these mandates really have nothing to do with safety and health, but everything to do with compliance and control, is it really supposed to shock or disturb us when they tell the government to get bent?

Am I supposed to believe the same media that suppressed the biggest story in our lifetime about how a father used his son as a money mule to cash out on a Ponzi scheme with foreign adversaries to this country as he compromised the national security of America and sold us out as the Vice President of the United States? The same media that prematurely called an election for the highest office in the world, ignoring the fact that no state had certified their poll numbers, massive fraud is suspected and men married to Democratic senators sit on the board of directors of a computer company that supposedly mistakingly glitched taking votes away from Donald Trump and giving them to Joe Biden?

You know, so forgive me if I don’t cower before my master, cover my face with a mask that isn’t backed up by any scientific data, close down my business and lock myself inside for the winter because I’m told to by the same people who’ve attempted multiple times to unseat a duly elected president by manufacturing lies about racism, misogyny and Ukrainian phone calls while corrupt establishment deep state politicians organize a fourth attempt at a coup de’ etat.

Trust me when I say that you’re going to enjoy the hell out of reading all of this one. As one of the commenters says: There is a whole lot of kiss-my-ass brewing out there. Might it turn out that my classic Fuck You Revolution proposition from a few years back (now buried deep in the archives that were lost in last year’s disastrous Russian hack-attack, woe is me) may yet turn out to be A Thing after all? We can but hope…

“Steal this election, and it’s war”

Our pal Aesop straight up, no chaser.

Steal this election, and it’s war. 

War to the knife, knife to the hilt, then gouging eyes and biting off ears.

There won’t be any mythical “unity” with people who’ve called for our shaming, rounding up, re-education, and our deaths. Nor any  “let’s-let-bygones-be-bygones” bullshit. There isn’t going to be any kowtowing to a horrendously corrupt process that even let anyone get this close to pulling it off, as though the Marquess of Queensbury Rules would remain in full effect, just because someone got away with it.

We aren’t gong to regroup, and hope the Senate, or SCOTUS, or the fucking Tooth Fairy and Easter Bunny, come to our rescue to keep frothing communists from enacting the Soviet/Cuban/Venezuelan Worker’s Paradise they’ve been salivating over for 80 years.

The minute someone violates democracy, and all due process, the social contract is broken, the Rule of Law is out the window, and any and all allegiance anyone owed or might claim from us to the former republic is null and void, in perpetuity.

Because from that moment forward, that republic has died, and ceases to exist.

I henceforth owe it nothing.

Not nostalgia, not love, not treasure, not true faith nor allegiance, because the party to whom all that was owed is no longer extant.

I will agitate, protest, strike, undermine, monkeywrench, sabotage, and if necessary, kill people and break things to destroy whatever hologram of the former republic anyone tries to prop up, and I won’t rest at that until I’m either dead, or I win.

We’re not going to hope for miraculous salvation, we’re going to shoot m#####f#####s in the face. Those are the stakes, and you said you wanted to play for blood. Game on, girl scouts.

A-fucking-men, from beginning to end. Just for the record, shitlibs: no, he is NOT kidding about this. None of us are. This is as serious as it gets. Because we all know how this story goes…and how it ends.

Historically, we know what has happened when there is conflict between a traditional society and a progressive socialist movement that has (or is in the process of gaining) the reigns of power in government.

We know what happens. It is a predictable, and well understood process. It is well documented.

You will not know you are in danger until it is too late.

You will not know.

When the new progressive socialist government takes control, one of the first things that they do is hunt down and slaughter their opposition. Historically, that has been the conservative and traditional elements of the society. I am sorry to say this, but this is the historical truth.

It doesn’t take a brain surgeon or rocket scientist to figure this out. All you need to do is read one or two history books. Nothing being said now should be any shock to anyone even remotely versed in history. It’s a very well established progression of history.

Every progressive liberal socialist movement eventually goes full-on Pol Pot.

What should be a shock is that the United States is destined to be one such nation. And you, dear boys and girls, are just about ready to be placed smack dab in ground zero for conflict. It will not be comfortable. It will not be pleasant. And, there will be those who will absolutely refuse to believe that it is happening.

I am not going to rehash history. You should know this. The only thing that I must underline is that YOU are not immune from the steam-roller of historical events. They will occur whether you want them to or not.

The question now is, have Americans learned the lessons of history? Enough of them, at any rate, to prevent it from being repeated here and now?

Smoking gun seized

Is Trump about to drop The Big One? First, we have this.

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., on Friday said conservatives should be wary about glitches and security issues with voting machines, given an apparent sea change in support from President Trump to Joe Biden since election eve.

In an interview on Newsmax TV’s ”Stinchfield,” Nunes said voting machine security is ”the big concern …of all conservatives.”

”They went to bed [on election night]…with Wisconsin, with Michigan, with Pennsylvania and it looks like there’s no way Trump could possibly lose,” Nunes said. ”They wake up and he lost all of them and continues to lose them.

”The…concern is if the [voting] machines aren’t secured,” he said.

Don’t look now, Dev, but it seems that Trump just arranged to “secure” some of ’em but good.

Earlier today Rep. Louie Gohmert told Chris Salcedo on Newsmax that people on the ground in Germany report that Scytl, which hosted  elections data improperly through Spain, was raided by a large US ARMY force and their servers were seized in Frankfurt.

Andrea Widburg at American Thinker earlier reported that Scytl is a Barcelona-based company that provides electronic voting systems worldwide, many of which have proven vulnerable to electronic manipulation.  Scytl has (or had) Soros and Democrat party connections.  Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s Vulcan Capital has invested $40 million in Scytl.

Tonight we learned from our source that Bill Gates also owns stock in Scytl.

Tonight we heard more from our source on this raid in Germany.

The US government, once they determined that this Dominion server was involved in switching votes, then the intelligence community began a search for the server and discovered that the server was in Germany. In order to get access to that server and have it available for use in a legal manner they had to have the State Department work in tandem with the Department of Justice. They had to request that the government of Germany cooperate in allowing this seizure of this server.

The appropriate documents required to affect that kind of seizure were put in place, signed off on, and it appears there was also US military support in this operation. The US military was not in the lead. But this helps explain why Esper was fired and Miller and Kash Patel were put in place — so that the military would not interfere with the operation in any way.

By getting ahold of the server they now are going to have the direct evidence of when they were instructed to stop counting. They will also discover who gave the direction to stop counting and who initiated the algorithm that started switching votes. The CIA was completely excluded from this operation.

HM. Okay, then. My boldface above indicates that, at the very least, Trump is fully cognizant of just who he can and cannot trust, and is making his own moves in accord with that belated awareness. But there’s more yet. Heightening the mystery and anticipation, über-attorney Lin Wood is busting out all grinny and happy about something his own bad self. It’s well worth bending my no-Tweet rule a wee mite for, I do believe:



Well, well, well, well, WELL. The Big One? If this pans out, it could very well be the Biggest One ever dropped, making Fat Man and Little Boy look like a butterfly kiss in comparison. Go get ’em, Mr Preznit sir. May Almighty God grant you (and all of us) the last laugh on the weasels, worms, and miscellaneous election-rigging filthbags at long, long last.

Of brass tacks, the nitty-gritty, and nut-cuttin’

Let’s get right down to ’em.

Last Wednesday, supporters of President Donald Trump gathered outside ballot counting centers in Arizona and Michigan to demand a clean and honest vote count. An MSNBC reporter in Arizona filmed the protesters in Maricopa County, where 400,000 ballots were being counted. Standing behind the protesters, the reporter tried to paint the crowd as violent and dangerous even as they stood and kneeled in silent prayer for election integrity.

It was a hard sell, but other reporters quickly got in on the action, and videos appeared throughout the day of reporters describing the swelling crowd chanting “Count the Vote” as violent.

There may be an innocent explanation for the obvious misinformation.

No there isn’t. To believe there might be, you’d need to accept the self-evidently spurious notion that we’re talking about innocent, impartial players here—honest reporters with nothing but pure hearts, clear consciences, and good intentions motivating them. At this point, anybody who isn’t guffawing right out loud at the very idea is a damned fool.

Political violence, like ballot harvesting, is a feature of the Democrats’ post-democratic political playbook. And here it is important to remember how things transpired in real time.

During the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, her campaign and the media presented Trump and his supporters as illegitimate political actors. Clinton memorably referred to them as “deplorables.” When Trump won the race, their delegitimization of Trump and his supporters quickly led them not to oppose Trump’s presidency, actions and policies, but to reject the legitimacy of both his presidency and of the democratic process that enables “deplorables” to choose a president that the Democrats don’t support.

That is, the delegitimization of Trump and his voters morphed into a rejection of the rules of American democracy.

Actually, it’s the other way around: the Left’s rejection of American democracy and Constitutional government long predated their refusal to accept Trump’s 2016 win, which then led to the ongoing campaign to delegitimize and remove him from office, by any means they could contrive.

It’s impossible to know how things will develop in America in the coming weeks. But it is hard to see a rainbow over the horizon. If Trump is declared the winner, the Democrats won’t accept the legitimacy of the verdict. Their use of political violence will undoubtedly rise.

And if Biden is declared the winner, the Democrats will not rest on their laurels. Having already adopted the totalitarian mindset, they will insist their newfound power be used to advance their program. Indeed, they already are.

MSNBC commentator Jason Johnson said Wednesday that there must be no peace for Republicans in a Biden presidency. Johnson warned Biden that he mustn’t even think about magnanimity in victory. He is “at war.”

In Johnson’s words, “You cannot come into this White House with the idea that these people [Trump supporters] aren’t the enemy. They are. They are the enemies of democracy.”

As I keep saying, we must take true enemies of democracy, liberty, and Constitutionally-proper governance like the excrescence Johnson at their word. Not should, mind you; MUST. Because trust me, they are NOT just whistling Dixie with all this bluster about “war” and “enemies” and such. These villanous curs have demonstrated enough times by now that they mean these terms quite literally, and take this war quite seriously indeed.

So must Team Liberty, then. We must ditch any and all remaining reticence over naming them enemies and start calling a spade a spade here. To go on being reluctant to face the unpleasant facts squarely will do nothing more than guarantee we’ll be overwhelmed and, ultimately, undone by them. Our enemy intends to win, and to rule. We must not, we cannot, allow that. However impolite the more genteel among us think it to say such beastly things right out loud, they’ll dislike what happens if we lose this war a whole lot more.

As for Trump’s supporters, after being called “chumps” by Biden, after watching the Democrat-run vote counts and Big Tech’s censorship of the president, Trump’s supporters will not trust the integrity of the process that brought Biden to the White House. And it is hard to imagine them taking it silently.

Standing outside the Philadelphia courthouse Wednesday, Giuliani addressed both the media and Trump’s supporters. Looking at the reporters, he said, “Do you think we’re stupid? You think we are fools?”

Turning to Trump’s supporters, Giuliani added, “Do you know something? The Democrats do think you’re stupid, they do think you’re fools, and that’s why you get called deplorable chumps. That’s over.”

No, not yet it isn’t. Count on it, people: none of this—NONE of it—will be over unless and until WE DECIDE IT IS, and then make that decision stick. Like it or not, there’s only one way to do that. It won’t be pretty, it won’t be easy, and it won’t be pleasant. But at the end of the day, the alternative will be far, far worse. It’s time for us to stop being chumps and show these assholes instead just how “deplorable” we can be when we need to. Time, too, to show them exactly why we’ve been “bitterly clinging” to our Bibles and our guns, and to teach them exactly what the 2A is really all about.

“This Is a Time for Fighting, Not for ‘Healing'”

Unite not with fork-tongued devils.

We all know that since the Sixties, and increasing every decade since then, the Democrats have moved farther left from the center and increasingly employed the scorched-earth tactics typical of the left. This development reached its peak during the Obama years, when the IRS was weaponized against Republican and conservative political organizations; and the White House began an illegal investigation into Donald Trump’s campaign and administration, in which high-ranking officials from the CIA, FBI, and DOJ participated, many moving on to the specious Mueller investigation that wasted $32 million and two years on a political ad for the Democrats. Meanwhile, progressive allies in government, media, sports, tech, and entertainment waged a relentless smear campaign against the President, egged on by Congressmen staging show-trial “hearings” for the news cameras.

So forgive us for turning a jaundiced eye on Biden’s clichés of “healing” and “unity.” More importantly, such talk bespeaks the guild mentality of like-minded and socio-economically similar technocrats, not the divided and balanced republic the Constitution created for we the people. Apart from times of war and natural disasters, unity should trouble us, for widespread agreement is usually the prelude to concentrations of power that facilitate tyranny.

The Founders distrusted excessive power, so they created a government of separate powers, each designed to check the encroachments of the other, and all checked and balanced by the sovereign states. This structure, along with elections every two years, has been the bulwark of our freedom. But for a century progressives have chipped away at that defense. The executive branch has expanded its size and scope by increasing the number of agencies and expanding their regulatory reach. The states were weakened when the power to select Senators was taken from state legislatures and given to the people. Given the Senate’s power to check the executive––confirming federal justices and cabinet members, declaring war, ratifying treaties––that change reduced the leverage state houses had over the executive. And don’t forget the federal money doled out to states for signing on to various redistributionist programs and illiberal federal regulations. As the British used to say about joining the army, “He who takes the king’s shilling is the king’s man.” State sovereignty has been weakened by this devil’s bargain.

As a result, over that time the scope of our freedom has been reduced, and the Bill of Rights hemmed in by restrictions and regulations. Matters of private conscience to be debated at the local or state level have been usurped by the feds and a hubristic Supreme Court. The very evils the Revolutionary generation fought against––overweening unaccountable power wielded by a distant sovereign––have been insidiously creeping back, and explicit threats have been made against our First and Second Amendment rights, as well as the Electoral College that protects minority rights from the majority.

That’s what “unity” portends–– the reduction of political diversity and freedom by the encroachments of an expanding government power. What we call “gridlock,” the stasis that follows factional disputes, is not a flaw in the system, it is its purpose, and the means for stopping power’s encroachments by setting ambition against ambition. It is how politically we obey the rule “first do no harm.”

If, as seems likely, Biden is certified as the winner of the election, and the Republicans keep the Senate, we will see in the next few years the genius of the Constitution at work. The tyrannical ambitions of the “woke” left will be checked by the Senate and a Trump-appointed judiciary. And in two years the people will have the chance to confirm or revise the status quo.

So pay no attention to the duplicitous rhetoric of “unity” and “healing.” The Dems have for decades proven they’re not interested in reconciliation, but in power. Conservatives are not the “loyal opposition,” they are the “racist, sexist, xenophobic” enemy to be defeated by any means necessary. That means it’s time to fight, not to “heal.”

Exactly, precisely, one hundred percent correct—apart from his breezy confidence that the Left will be “checked” by a Senate which has never shown the least penchant for any such thing before, a Pollyanna-ish optimism I do NOT share in the slightest. As for the rest of it, yeah, spot on.

When Democrat-Socialist creeps and connivers come around crooning words like “unity” and “healing” into the ears of their hated enemies, what the manipulative wretches really mean by them is “surrender” and “comply.” They’re not seeking real reconciliation with us; all they want from us is obedience. Be assured that we will receive nothing whatsoever from them in return.

Truth is, with their ilk it’s ALWAYS “time to fight, not to heal.” There can be no “healing” or “unity” with would-be Communist dictators, no rapprochement or compromise, nor SHOULD there be. As history has invariably shown, to naively yield to their unctuous, deceitful blandishments is a fatal blunder. The only viable options are A) crush them utterly, or B) die in the attempt.

Real Americans, now and for all time, must re-dedicate themselves to living up to some of the most stirring words in all history—an uncompromising rejection of a tyranny far less odious than the one that threatens us today—spoken by a common ancestor whose unblemished example is a legacy of which a lapsed and inattentive people can only pray to prove themselves worthy:

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 upon 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. 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 those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The 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!

What true American, what honest lover of liberty, could ever disparage those beautiful words or revile the man who spoke them? Only a soulless dullard, a total cretin whose ahistorical ignorance is surpassed only by his unfounded arrogance, could even conceive of doing such a shameful thing. That our present-day enemy dares to do so, not just openly but boastfully, reveals everything we should ever need to know concerning his vileness, his abject lack of character, his witless stupidity, and the total necessity of defeating and destroying him.

Light the match, burn it all down

Joy Pullman further enlarges my enlargement of Steyn’s original “pardon everybody” suggestion for Trump.

A savvy embattled leader will prepare for all possible outcomes, and make war on all fronts possible. Democrat leadership doesn’t only do that because they have evil ideology and character. They do it because it works.

That means right now President Trump needs a skunkworks team coming up with as many political land mines as possible to embed in the landscape if Republicans are forced to retreat from the White House in January. Going on offense will also open new fronts so Democrats cannot exclusively focus on swaying the North Carolina and Georgia Senate races to obtain unobstructed control of Congress and the presidency.

I’ve got a few ideas that will open new offensive fronts and occupy Democrat time and resources, as well as deprive them of their public veneer of legitimacy that is crucial to the population quietly accepting their claims at face value, to the clear detriment of our nation and its future.

Follows, a list of twelve ideas, of which the last is my personal fave.

12. Get American Soldiers Home by Christmas
On Monday, President Trump fired and replaced Defense Secretary Mark Esper. Since Trump has been the only president in decades to not start a new foreign war, and his own staff have been blocking his policy of not making U.S. taxpayers fund the security of foreign nations, he should get it done already.

It’s been 20 years. We’re done in Iraq and Afghanistan. Give America and the troops a Christmas present. If Biden ultimately reverses the decision or starts a new war, he can make Democrats own their new status as the party that stands for wasting American blood and treasure.

Bonus: when Trump establishes his White House In Exile in the Republic of Texas, he’s gonna need some soldiers to clear out the shitlib rat’s nest in Austin beforehand. Gee, think a company or three of overburdened and underappreciated combat vets suddenly brought home in time to spend Christmas with their families might be grateful enough to lend a hand with that worthy undertaking right after the holidays?

Hellzapoppin’

Things are simmering across the nation, with the kettle set to come to full boil very soon. I’ll forego commentary on the following happenings and just provide the links.

Just a small sampling for now, more as and when.

I do so love a woman with spunk

Looks like the theme for tonight’s posting is gonna be “unity.”

Independent journalist Megyn Kelly knocked Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and other left-wingers over Biden’s calls for “unity” after “viciously” attacking President Donald Trump and his supporters for four years.

Kelly first mocked a tweet from Biden’s account calling for a nation “united,” “strengthened,” and “healed.”

“Written like a man who’s been in his basement for a year,” Kelly said.

Her quip brought numerous Biden defenders into her replies, criticizing her for mocking Biden’s call to unity. Kelly refused to back down, however, and pointed out that Biden’s message is disingenuous considering the vitriol and hate that has been directed toward Trump every year of his presidency as well as the tens of millions of Americans that voted for him.

“Half of the country has been demonized as awful for four years just for supporting their president who was falsely accused of Russian collaboration, wrongly impeached & attacked relentlessly by the [left] & a dishonest media. And now it’s ‘let’s heal!’ ‘Unity!’ Good luck,” Kelly responded to University of Chicago economist Austan Goolsbee.

Biting as those ripostes were, they’re mild stuff indeed compared to what Megyn had waiting in her bandoleer for them. Don’t know quite what’s going on with that girl of late. But after her early tussle with Trump, bringing on the disastrous personal consequences that typically befall those who have committed a similar miscalculation, she’s surely been in fine form since. She’s demonstrated some serious mettle, skillfully wielded, and I have to say I’m digging the show. So I’ll just offer Ms Kelly a hearty “You GO, girl!” while I sit back in eager anticipation of more.

What to do, what to do

Steyn offers a course of action for Trump to consider.

If the lawsuits go nowhere, what should Trump do? He’s never been a “normal” president, and he wasn’t elected to be one. Does he really want to mope around in the Oval Office until January 20th for a “peaceful transition of power” that he himself was denied (by among others Joe Biden)? Even if they never succeed in gaoling him, they will surely use the “peaceful transition” to put in place a couple of decades’ worth of litigation-without-end. Come to that, can he even trust the Secret Service agents they’ll assign to him?

He will never be a “normal” former president – because they are determined to exclude him from those ranks. If I were Trump and the litigation goes south, I would pardon Michael Flynn, Roger Stone and others and then get on a plane to one of my overseas resorts to play a little golf. After forty-eight hours, I would resign the presidency, having first ensured that Mike Pence would issue any necessary pardon.

I think the American people would enjoy Pence as president for a couple of months, and Pence would do the tedious interregnum shtick better than a justifiably sour and embittered Trump. And, if nothing else, it would oblige the Dems to re-order all their T-shirts, because Joe would now be the “47th president”. The political “norms” of contemporary America are mostly garbage: No founding father would have contemplated for a moment a two-year presidential campaign, and, if you’d suggested it, they’d have cried in unison, “Come back, George III, all is forgiven.” It’s a total waste of time, energy and money, culminating in a three-month “transfer of power” that the Deep State uses very effectively to ensure that as little as possible actually gets transferred.

But it’s impossible to change unless a sorely traduced guy with nothing to lose goes and blows it up. That would be a grand public service.

Go for it, Mr President – and then run in 2024 as the 21st-century Grover Cleveland.

I like it, but have a few more suggestions to tack on. In addition to pardons for one and all who were persecuted, hounded, and had their lives and livelihoods destroyed by petty, spiteful Democrat-Socialist pond scum, before he heads on off to some Bahamas isle for some well-earned R&R, Trump should:

  • Thoroughly and ruthlessly clean Deep State house via mass firings in every Federal bureaucracy—ZERO exceptions, from department heads on down to the lowliest janitor; not a single Swamp remora or Obama stay-behind should be spared
  • Declassify every last document even tangentially related to the Russia and Ukraine hoaxes; Operation Fast and Furious; Operation Crossfire Hurricane/Spygate; the Benghazi blunder; the Iran pallets o’ cash scam; HILLARY!!™‘s illegal shithouse server; Uranium One, etc, then execute a massive document dump to every media outlet in the world
  • Disband the FBI and CIA specifically, direct the US Marshall Service to forcible eject every employee and contractor without delay, then reduce the buildings they currently occupy to rubble
  • Sell off all office equipment, supplies, and furnishings left behind by terminated bureau-rats at fire-sale prices, then immediately raze the now-vacant office buildings they previously infested

After all that, Mr Preznit sir, declare it a job well done, accept the thanks of a grateful half-of-a-nation for your efforts, then head to the beach for plenty of sun, surf, and suds far removed from the soul-sucking toils of Mordor On The Potomac and its loathsome Orcs.

We must FIGHT!

Just without fighting.

Those who demand grace from Trump supporters as we watch the nation stolen from us, deny the peril from a ravenous beast that will consume our freedoms and chain the American people.

Don’t believe that the crazies really are serious about retribution? How about AOC’s endorsement of the Trump Accountability Project designed to, “make sure anyone who took a paycheck to help Trump undermine America is held responsible for what they did.”

This is what Communist dictators do. It is how North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, Venezuela’s Maduro, even Communist China’s Mao, Deng, and current leader Xi Jinping control their un-free people. It is consistent with historical tyranny imposed by Lenin and Stalin.

The AOC’s of the Left, are joined by crazed, attack dogs in the media like the odious Olbermann who wants the president arrested and removed from office. Olbermann, who has lately become even more delirious with hate, also wants to arrest Tucker Carlson and others who have exposed the Left or expressed support for Trump. And yet the propaganda arm of the new Left and Democrats continues to give a platform to spew hate and discord by this unhinged lunatic who advocates for violence against those with whom he disagrees.

There really is no other choice but to fight to preserve our nation. While the Left is assiduously stealing the presidency (with the almost ironic twist that Republicans are gaining seats in Congress and around the country), we must not acquiesce to their efforts. We must have faith. We must have hope. We must have the courage necessary to fight.

This flat statement lining out who the enemy is, what he’s capable of, and what he intends for us is correct so far in its factual detail, its historical parallels, and its tenor. But then he goes wobbly.

If it takes peaceful protests, we must take to the streets with a quiet and resolved dignity that shows the difference between the thoughtful Right and the mindless Left.

If it takes litigation, our lawyers must be given the resources and support necessary to make the case.

It certainly will take communication to the American people. Communicate every way, through every mode. And when the Masters of the Tech Universe censor you, go around them.

We must urge legislators to confirm Trump’s electors when there is demonstrable tampering of electoral outcomes by the vote thieves on the Left.

WE MUST FIGHT, PEOPLE!! With peaceful protests, with litigation, with communication, with “urging.” Anybody but me notice that any mention of actual, y’know, FIGHTING is very scrupulously avoided?

Peaceful protest, litigation, and etc are all fine things, in more civilized contexts with a more or less honorable opponent. They’re infinitely preferable to violence and bloodshed, no doubt. But what happens when those fine and noble things are insufficient to the task? When you’re confronting an enemy for whom attempts at peaceful persuasion or compromise are viewed only with scorn, as signs of weakness that can be exploited to crush the foe completely? When the conflict is not against more civilized opponents with at least a general respect the rules of fair play and decency, but against venomous, belly-crawling snakes in the grass whose only goal is victory, at any cost and by any means?

THEN what are you prepared to do?



Nation on the brink

I dunno, I’d say we’ve gone over the precipice myself.

The democrats are losing congressional seats, state office seats, a governor and yet those same states voted for Biden? It defies common sense. Millions of election day voter ballots could be counted in hours within Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia and Nevada…. but they needed to stop, pause, and take days to count thousands? Again, none of this makes sense; unless this was manipulated by design.

President Trump can hold rallies with tens-of-thousands, while Joe Biden can only draw a few dozen. Surrogates for Trump draw more supporters to their events than former President Barack Obama. Again, nonsensical under any scenario.

Miami-Dade votes for Donald Trump and kicks out democrat incumbent congressional representation. Then we consider the biggest GOP vote share among married families, a cross-section of all religious affiliations and all races for President Trump… and yet somehow the invisible campaign of Joe Biden had the largest impact?

President Trump has a social-media following six to ten times larger than Joe Biden; and in the lead-up to the election the supporters for Trump outnumbered the Biden campaign by magnitudes almost too high to count. Yet this little supported candidacy of Biden was able to attract more ’20 votes than “The Lightbringer“, ’08 candidate Obama?  Unlikely.

Prior to the election most Americans knew the ‘mail-in’ ballot demand from Democrats was ripe for fraud and manipulation. With hundreds-of-thousands of ‘mail-in’ ballots at the heart of the current election controversy; and specifically with regional political operatives doing everything they can to block any review of that process; and those regional entities are known to be at the epicenter of previously documented fraud; that prior conception is stark.

At the 30,000 ft level – Biden voters, actual people voting, did not exceed Trump voters. Which means the current dynamic consists of a minority number of Biden supporters taking possession of an election where the majority are dismissed. There is no reasonable way to reconcile this ever leading to a positive outcome; even with an overwhelming effort by mainstream media to push a narrative, and an effort by big tech to suppress any dissension. There is just a point where reality is so stark no amount of manipulative spin can compensate for it.

The resulting election dynamic is a powder-keg of danger to our constitutional republic; and it will not be resolved simply by the Biden supporter side demanding acceptance.

How can you endanger a “constitutional republic that no longer exists?

I’m not sure how this is going to end but we have crossed a horizon here and there is no way for the American people to ever go back to that time when they did not see the strings on the political marionettes.

Well over seventy million people are on the precipice of having their votes disenfranchised. These same people are being summarily dismissed, told to shut-up, and are now carrying a much more angry fuel within them. This non-democratic reality is not within the recipe for a recoverable position. EVER.

If, BIG “if”, Joe Biden, is appointed as president, that powder-keg is going to want to ignite with a ferocity the leftists in this nation genuinely do not understand or appreciate. 

It’s an awful thing to have to ponder, but Real Americans could find themselves much worse off if it DOESN’T ignite. If the third of the Four Boxes fails to turn this clusterfuck around, as seems highly likely, then the choice is as simple as it is stark: surrender to tyranny and terror, putting ourselves at the mercy of uncompromising, proven-violent zealots whose hatred for us burns well beyond mere derangement…or strike a match and light the friggin’ fuse.

What now?

Does anyone have a good answer? IS there a good answer?

We’ve seen this movie before. This is how they beat Scott Walker in Wisconsin in 2018, Tom Foley in Connecticut in 2010, and Norm Coleman in Minnesota in 2008.

Why stop the count? Because that’s the only way to know how many votes you need to “win.” Sure, you can just brute force things by backing up a truck full of ballots. But that looks bad. You might even end up counting more votes than there are registered voters in the state. Better to eke out a narrow win. As Joseph Kennedy, Sr. allegedly said to his second son, “I’m not paying for a landslide.”

The thing could (but will never) be proved. Those who ran the operation are also in charge of all the potential investigating agencies. There’s zero chance they will use any of that power to uncover their own malfeasance. Think a Biden Justice Department will look into it?

Expect instead a media typhoon of propaganda insisting that the results are all legit, that any anomaly you think you see (or saw) is a “conspiracy theory,” or at any rate innocently explainable by mundane process details too boring to get into. Twitter is already slapping warnings on the accounts of those who point out irregularities. How long before they start outright suspensions?

Will it work? That depends on the president and his allies and what they do. The odds and the forces arrayed against them are immense.

What would I have them do? I’m no expert but the crew at Revolver has some good ideas: (1) challenge the late-night “finds” in the courts; (2) hold rallies in contested states; (3) urge GOP officials in close states to expose shenanigans and, if necessary, to refuse to seat Biden electors in the event of a fake count; (4) mount a campaign to marshal grassroots public opinion in the president’s favor. Convince the people that if in fact the election is in the process of being stolen, the president and his allies are going to fight the steal on their behalf. If middle America wants to prevent this election from being stolen, it will have to be willing to act—now. I know they are willing, but they need to hear from the President and his best surrogates. I’d get Trump on Tucker, tonight, to explain his plan.

But in another sense, the Democrats’ plan won’t “work.” Even if the steal can be made to stick, half the country won’t accept it. That is, they’ll accept the reality that power is now in the hands of a party that took it by fraud. But they won’t believe that the election was fair or the outcome real. They will believe, or be confirmed in a belief that’s been brewing for a long time, that the system is rigged, the process is fake, the ruling class are liars, the government is illegitimate, and that they themselves are subjects and not citizens—anything but a free people with a say over its own destiny. If the ruling class can get away with this, they will be able to get away with anything. And they will know it.

And they will be perfectly correct about all that too, every last word of it. In fact, we’re even further down the rabbit hole than we think.

Voter fraud is happening right now. We all know it; one would be hard pressed to find a single American on either side of the aisle who would not acknowledge that it’s taking place. Around half the country realizes (or is willing to admit) it’s happening in favor of Democrats, but very few realize just how deep this particular rabbit hole goes.

Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney does. The retired military man has kept his finger on the pulse of the intelligence community and national politics since retiring in 1994. He’s not alone in this regard, but what separates him from other retired military personnel is that his love for the nation and oath to the Constitution compel him to speak out even when he knows it will get him some heat. That heat will be coming based on his revelations in the latest episode of Two Mikes.

A CIA program known as “Scorecard” allows its users to change voting outcomes by hacking into the transfer between local reporting stations and state or national data centers. According to McInerney, it’s a small amount, under 3%, to keep it from triggering any alarms. He would know. He served in top military positions under the Secretary of Defense and the Vice President of the United States. His insights into the matter are coming at just the right time with election day tomorrow. Hopefully, it’s not too late.

It’s imperative that President Trump and whoever he can trust implicitly to look for signs of “Scorecard” being used in swing states. Lt. Col. McInerney says it can be traced. If the left is stealing this election, we need to catch them red-handed.

Done and done, dude. So…what next? Sefton asks an even more burning question:

We also have Miranda Devine insisting “the Dems will not get away with this” as well as the outstanding Michael Anton stating “It will all go according to plan — unless we stop it.” Well, Mr. Anton I am open to suggestions. To my mind, the only way to do that requires the five or six armored or airborne divisions to seize the statehouses and legislatures in question, arrest every damned Democrat in sight, seize all the ballots and/or thumbdrives (evidently that’s a thing in Michigan) and declare Donald J. Trump as the winner based on the real projections at about the time on Tuesday night when the Chinese yuan crashed.

And since that is probably not going to happen except in my mind, I don’t know really what can be done. The whole thing is now a hot mess of phony ballots, real ballots and the rules and regulations of six states, some of them changed literally almost at the last second before election day to make it impossible to reject clearly bogus ballots. How are the courts or Supreme Court going to clear that up, assuming we have a majority that wants to do so?

Look, for better or worse, in elections past when things did not go the way I wanted, I swallowed, bit the bullet and then moved on. But I never thought in a billion billion years that the American system of free and fair elections would ever be anything but that. And here we are, on par with Zimbabwe in 1980, or Mexico for nearly 100 years with the PRI (which is indeed where we are headed). Yes, the average Democrat voter is upset about what happened NOT because their party sabotaged the election but that they did not get the clear victory they were promised. And now, if Trump does in fact survive this not-so-soft coup attempt, it will further tear the country apart. Not that there is any love lost between the Left and America as founded (or what vestige is left of it). Funny how if Trump does win the shrieking about how the Constitution was ignored or destroyed will be deafening. Ironic, and disgusting at the same time.

It’s one thing when the thug terrorists of Antifa/BLM say “by any means necessary.” It’s quite another when what is supposed to be one of the two major American political parties says it as well and takes it to heart. They lost this election. They know they lost this election. Worse for them, they have lost a good chunk of their base – the disaffected, disenfranchised and so-called “marginalized” “victims” ironically enough who are that way because of Democrat policies. The Deep State machinations of power, thievery and perversion wrapped in privilege also took a massive hit insofar as it was exposed to the people. They lost this election months ago if not a year ago before the phony pandemic hit. They lost it when Trump stated to their faces and for the whole world to see on January 20th, 2017 when he promised to drain the swamp.

But the swamp is wide and it is deep, as we have now seen. So I ask Ms. Devine and Messrs. Goldman and Anton, who are no doubt sincere in their words, yes let’s fight back and not let this happen.

The question is “HOW?”

At first glance, the answer might not seem at all obvious or simple. But it is, even though the actions required to implement it would be difficult and painful. Via WeirdDave, the inspiring story of the Battle of Athens shows us the way.

Athens is the seat of McMinn County, which, at the time, was the nerve center for Sheriff Paul Cantrell, a major lieutenant of a corrupt Democratic machine which stretched from Tennessee to the District of Columbia. Though we will eschew labeling Cantrell or his machine politics “evil,” as this was simply the way things were done in many American polities, it is worth noting that before and especially during the Second World War, Cantrell presided over corruption and graft on an industrial scale. As Chris DeRose details, the Sheriff drew salaries of nearly sixty thousand dollars per year over his first six years that were worth well over one million dollars in today’s purchasing power. He was also appointed superintendent of the county workhouse for an additional salary of over two thousand dollars; DeRose notes that “McMinn County did not have a workhouse, making its superintending easy.” This at a time when the median Tennessee home was worth less than two thousand dollars and the starting salary for enlisted men was fifty dollars per month. Despite strict rationing, McMinn machine men never wanted for cars, tires, or fuel. Illegal casinos, speakeasies, and whorehouses payed thousands of dollars per month in protection money. Dozens of county employees were listed on the payrolls for the sole purpose of providing cover for a vast money laundering operation.

There were no “elections” in McMinn County through the war years. The ballot boxes were in Democratic offices, and Cantrell’s deputies served as the election officers, some of whom were brutal killers with the blood of innocent civilians on their hands. Other local thugs and felons were on hand to further inculcate the climate of fear, including a man who murdered his own father and, five months after the election, murdered his sister-in-law, an expectant mother, and an infant child. There were about two gunmen for each voter; DeRose further illuminates the chicanery, noting that some voters were temporarily imprisoned to prevent them from voting, while others had their poll tax receipts and eligibility certificates invalidated, “in some cases by the very official who had issued them.” Word was put out among elderly voters that their pensions would be held up unless they voted “the right way.” When the Republican election judge, a disabled veteran of the First World War, attempted to view the ballot count, he was dragged into the corridor and beaten, leaving him paralyzed. Another man who attempted to observe the ballot count was pistol-whipped, and one gunman fired at a poll worker who tried to leave the courthouse.

Several Athenians petitioned the Department of Justice for relief, knowing that local and State officials would not take any action against the machine. A hardware store owner wrote Attorney General Francis Biddle, imploring, “The good people of this county are sacrificing for the cause of America’s freedom but have lost their freedom at home. Both parties have lost the freedom of the ballot box, a dictatorship has been set up, the county treasury is being raided at the expense of the taxpayers, and the good people of this county would like to sell their property and move away. Your department is our last line of defense. Please, for God’s sake come to the rescue of a helpless people.” A minister wrote to Biddle of “a ruthless exploitation at the hands of unscrupulous men who sacrifice public liberties for the sake of private gain…nothing has been considered too low if it will enable them to perpetuate themselves in office. Decent citizens feared to bring their wives to the polls, and often felt it unwise to cast their own ballots…It is not possible for a letter to contain information concerning all the subversive and unscrupulous activities that have taken place in this county.”

In a sadly unsurprising echo of the situation today, the DoJ filed a report, then sat back and did nothing. However, since in 1946 Americans were still Americans, that was by no means the end of the story. A group of just-returned WW2 vets led by local hero Bill White put together a bipartisan slate of candidates for office, the “Ex-Serviceman’s Cleanup Ticket for McMinn County”:

As C. Stephen Byrum notes, the GI ticket was superior to the machine’s, “by any rules of logic,” comprised of men “young and old, Democratic and Republican, city and country, all veterans, all battle-tested, and all highly thought of.” The local Republican Party resolved to officially endorse the veterans’ ticket instead of running its own candidates; after seconding the motion in favor of the resolution, one party official delivered an excellent summation: “We are involved in a conflict with desperate enemies who have sought to subject us to tyranny and oppression…We feel a deep sense of obligation and now seek in measure to repay…Young men who have fought against oppression abroad will continue that fight for honesty and decency at home.” Amid a campaign of harassment and violence to silence them, the GIs persisted. Bill White, the most prescient of the group, felt that his compatriots were being naïve, arguing that they had to organize a “fighting bunch.” “Listen,” he said. “Do you think they’re going to let you win this election? Those people been taking these elections for years with a bunch of armed thugs. If you never got the guts enough to stand up and fight fire with fire, you ain’t gonna win.”

The Demonrat crooks and thugs stood their ground at first against the GIs on election day: beating some of the GIs; jailing others; ejecting poll watchers and holding them hostage; and even stealing the town’s 12 ballot boxes, locking them up in various locations under their control. Things looked bad for a while, the GIs confused and uncertain about what their next move ought to be. Then Bill White rallied his troops with a stirring speech.

Well! Here you are! After three or four years of fighting for your country. You survived it all. You came back. And what did you come back to? A free country? You came back to Athens, Tennessee, in McMinn County, that’s run by a bunch of outlaws. They’ve got hired gunmen all over this county right now at this minute. What for? One purpose. To scare you so bad you won’t dare stand up for the rights you’ve been bleeding and dying for. Some of your mothers and some of your sisters are afraid to walk down the streets to the polling places. Lots of men, too! Because they know what happens. A car drives by in the night and shoots out your windows. If that doesn’t scare you enough, they’ll set fire to your house or your barn. They’ll beat up members of your family and put them in jail. For no reason! Is that the kind of freedom you were supposed to be fighting for? Do you know what your rights are supposed to be? How many rights have you got left? None! Not even the right to vote in a free election. When you lose that, you’ve lost everything. And you are damned well going to lose it unless you fight and fight the only way they understand. Fire with fire! We’ve got to make this an honest election because we promised the people that if they voted it would be an honest election. And it’s going to be. But only if we see that it is. We are going to have to run these organized criminals out of town, and we can do it if we stick together. Are you afraid of them? Why, I could take a banana stalk and run every one of these potbellied draft dodgers across Depot Hill. Get the hell out of here and get something to shoot with. And come back as fast as you can.

Guess what happened next. Go on, guess. Hint: Thompson subguns, a German Mauser, a .30 cal M1917 machine gun, and “an enormous stockpile of dynamite” were involved. The happy ending:

The next day, a reporter noticed that the GI guarding the jail was armed only with a blackjack, with no gun in sight. He asked why, and the young veteran replied, “Don’t need a gun today. That’s what all the shootin’ was about last night.” Indeed. Knox Henry was sworn in as Sheriff, declaring: “We have accomplished what we started out to do. We’ve broken the grip of the political machine that has ruled McMinn County for ten years without regard as to the wishes of the people in how their government was to be run. When I say we, I mean the other GIs on the nonpartisan cleanup ticket and the citizens of McMinn County who helped us win the battle. We regret that the gunfight at the jail had to happen…Our only alternative was to use force…there will be no trouble of this kind at the next election. Any person who can qualify for an office may run with the full assurance of an honest election and the people will have nothing to fear when they go to the polls on Election Day.” Henry needed a whole new team of deputies, and pinned a star on Bill White. Almost immediately, they carried out raids on the moonshiners and bootleggers who had enjoyed the protection of the vanquished machine.

Letters inundated the local papers, with messages of encouragement such as: “To the GI Patriots, Athens, Tennessee: Thank you indeed for restoring the faith in America which so many of us had lost. Keep pitching and firing when necessary.”; “We have chicken-stealers and hog-stealers! House-stealers and auto-stealers! But the lowest, dirtiest of all are our election-stealers!”; and, “I congratulate you in the memory of my son, who lies buried in the South Pacific.” One GI carried a small paper with him everywhere, which read: “Remember…that no American can afford to be disinterested in any part of his Government, whether it is county, city, State, or nation.” The Tennessean praised what “has happened in the beautiful little city of Athens in McMinn County,” which “undoubtedly has awakened a thrill of pride throughout this machine-ridden state. Make no mistake. The McMinn County veterans and their supporters had first won their victory at the polls. Then they fought, with their bare fists and such weapons as they could seize, to protect their election from the theft attempted by force of arms before their eyes. This was no ‘riot’—unless Bunker Hill was a riot.” The “Boston Tea Party of Tennessee [caused] by a decade of election corruption and thievery, has stamped upon a brutal farce it had determined to endure no longer.” The battle was “what always has happened where men not born of a craven race have been pushed too far by tyranny.”

Major Carl Anderson, one of the heroes of the Battle of Athens, distills our lesson in its purest form: “Before you go, I want to say that I hope that our country, especially those places that are as boss ridden as we were, will take hope from what we have accomplished here. I think we have shown how to clean out those dirty nests. Anyway, we’ve done it.” These Southern heroes, Dixie incarnate, took back their town. Let us now take back our nation.

By all means, let’s. The soap box and the ballot box have failed us. The jury box may yet come through and avert bloodshed, although the early indicators there aren’t encouraging. Should it too fail, there’s only the one box left to us: the very same one that was used to liberate Athens, Tennessee from Democrat corruption and criminality way back in ’46. May God grant that this generation of Americans proves to be as stout-hearted and indomitable as their Tennessee forefathers were, in numbers sufficient to turn the Dismal Tide.



Red flags in your face

Correia compiles ’em, then analyzes the clear fraudulence that’s making ’em wave.

In a small populace, you can get 100% of the vote. However the larger the sample, the more likely there will be dissenting votes. Even in the bluest of blue areas or reddest of red areas, somebody is going to be a cranky dissident, or an old person is going to fill in the wrong circle. When you get into the hundreds or thousands yet maintain that kind of perfect ratio, basically impossible.

Plus we are supposed to believe that Joe Biden, the guy (who) barely campaigned, who got like 12 sad looking people to his rallies, was more popular than Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama? This election was just that much more special? Uh huh… Except that these few battleground state blue cities vote ratios don’t match up with other blue cities around America, where it appears Trump’s support among every demographic group other than white males went UP.

Then people were quick to dismiss these statistically improbable spikes with “of course the mail in voting favors Biden, republicans vote in person.” Yes, but they don’t favor Biden with these kind of ratios anywhere else in America. The ratios are more like 60-40 or 70-30. But 97-3? Oh fuck no. So either Biden is a better campaigner to the inner cities (though he rarely left his basement) than the eloquent messianic figure of Barack Obama, or there’s something fishy going on here.

Now, as a suspicious auditor type who spent a lot of hours looking for fuckery in complex systems, my gut tells me fake ballots were getting dumped into the system to make up the difference. And oh look, here is a giant pile of red flags indicating that’s the case.

As the man says—as I’ve likewise said so many times myself—when all the “mistakes” only go on one direction, always working to the advantage of one side and never the other…well, these aren’t mistakes we’re talking about, people. They’re part of a plan.

Next, Larry tots the whole dumpster fire up for us.

Here’s another thing you learn about auditing. The more chaotic the system, the more chances for fraud. So when you come across a system that is extra chaotic on purpose, that tells you that the people running it want it that way for a reason.

And the flags just keep coming in. This is going to be way worse than Florida in 2000.

What happens now? Beats me. It goes to court, and then the real question becomes how much spine the republicans have to actually fight. In previous years I’d assume they’d be a bunch of spineless chickenshits and wimp out like usual, but I’m not so sure this time. I don’t know if or how any of these will pan out, and without access to the real data, all I can do is guess.

I can say without hesitation though, that fuckery is afoot, and if an actual real investigation happens they’ll be able to prove it. Only this is politics, so who knows. The only thing I do know for certain is that this election is so fucked up it is just going to make America’s two halves hate each other even more.

Usually this many red flags flapping around gets the bull madder’n a wet hen. We’ll soon see if he’s gonna charge or not.
