Flirting around

AG risks offending the MoR types and alarming its advertisers with a coquettish sidling in close and a little batting of the eyelashes at rogue radicalism.

Is This the End of the Republic?
We have a border crisis, an economic crisis, an energy crisis, a supply-chain crisis, a health crisis, a crime wave, a labor shortage, inflation, and stranded Americans still in Afghanistan. All of these problems were not only preventable, but were caused, created, worsened, aided, and abetted by a man in the White House who’s an ailing, doddering, senile, cognitively impaired buffoon spewing lies and incoherent sentences practically every time he speaks.

When former President Trump left office in January, border crossings had been down for eight consecutive months. But Joe Biden’s refusal to enforce our border laws, including ending the successful “Remain in Mexico” policy, and stopping the construction of the wall along our southern border, has resulted in the worst border crisis in at least two decades.

In September, U.S. Customs and Border Protection made 192,001 apprehensions along the southern border. Border agents arrested more than 1.7 million illegal border crossers in the fiscal year that ended in September. This after 208,000 migrants illegally crossed our border in August, and 212,000 migrants entered the country in July. And these are just the numbers of those who come into custody. Overall, border apprehensions are up almost 500 percent over last year.

But that’s not all.

Oh, you bet your sweet bippy it ain’t. The last few days I’ve been thinking about putting together a post like this one myself, a listing of all the symptoms of a dying Republic to date. As I usually do, I started pulling it together in my head beforehand, and found myself surprised at how quickly the sheer number of items overwhelmed me completely. Just making an informal mental start on assembling such a list is already a truly Herculean task, with multiple additions each and every day. If Hemingway’s well-known maxim about bankruptcy can be applied to the collapse of a formerly prosperous and stable nation, I’d say we have definitely left “Gradually” to plunge well into the “All At Once” zone.

Thankfully, this article has done all my work for me, although even this depressingly capacious compendium isn’t all-inclusive. Which realization is depressing in its own right. It’s a tough, heart-rending, enraging read, ending with a challenge if not a blunt call to arms:

How much longer will we stand for this, and what is the remedy?

There is no easy solution, but one thing is certain. It is time for those who wish to end this pervasive leftist onslaught to get off the sidelines.

It will take far more than Republicans in Congress ranting and raving on Fox News. It will take more than righteous anger at school board meetings. It will take more than cops, nurses, teachers and factory workers refusing to be vaccinated. It will take all of those who wish to defend liberty, and freedom against tyranny to insert themselves into the arena, and say, “enough is enough.”

If we remain silent now, then it will be the end of the republic.

The surprising thing about the article was the absence of any of the usual “peaceful, legal, nonviolent” worminess. While the author (who, according to the brief bio at the bottom, “was a speechwriter in the Trump Administration”) stopped well short of what we might call “fighting words,” this represents a real departure from the rhetorical daintiness more characteristic of Our Side’s bigger online publishers. Should this sort of thing ecalate into a bona fide trend, it might plausibly be taken as a barometer of rising anger and resolution on the Right, as well as an alarm klaxon for our increasingly rapacious would-be masters. Tough for them that they’re far too thoroughly marinated in a dangerous blend of arrogance, assumptions of impunity, and cocky self-regard to pay any heed to the warning as it blares ever louder and more insistently.

Which, they really, really need to. Because there’s a reckoning coming; it won’t be pretty, and they are NOT going to enjoy it.

Considering the unwinding of the Republic began during the Wilson Administration, you’re gonna need a bigger blog.

Notable Quotes

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

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

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

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

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

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved." - Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil." - Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork." - David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." - Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine." - Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in." - Bill Whittle
