Final stages

Or, if you want to be a bit more prosaic about it: death throes.

The events at the spa were bad enough. The attack by AntiFa, and the subsequent actions of the police in 1) refusing to defend the peaceable protestors and 2) arresting a man who dared to defend himself make it plain that Los Angeles, California is about to collapse into complete chaos – and it might take the whole state with it.

The Golden State is the chief “produce cart” of these United States. Imagine it as a “failed state” in which there is no order and no safety. Be quick about it; soon you won’t need to imagine.

The lesson in this “should” be “obvious.” Sadly, it isn’t.

Throughout the nation, public order is breaking down. I can hardly name a city of significant size where Black Lives Matter and AntiFa don’t run rampant. Municipal police departments are either indifferent or impotent. Though there haven’t yet been many, reports of home invasions by those forces are making honest, peaceable Americans fearful about their own homes. As for urban commercial districts, I hardly think I need comment.

Los Angeles may be the forerunner of a complete social collapse from coast to coast. The consequences will include food shortages, loss of electrical power, unavailability of fuels, disruption of the roads, open gang violence, and many other things. If you think having the kids confined to the house this past year was bad, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet – and I hope you never do, though in my view the portents are grim.

The following is from a novel-under-construction:

“Public order is a matter of public will,” Merrell said in his most famous first-term address. “We have lacked the will. We dislike to compel immigrants and the young to conform to the norms of public decorum. We dislike to demand that public charges aim for self-sufficiency and make an honest effort to achieve it. We dislike to budget for law enforcement. We dislike to see armed men who embody the authority of the law patrolling our streets. We dislike to erect and staff prisons. We especially dislike to clear the streets of vagrants and idlers by force, or to hold parents responsible for the deeds of their miscreant children. Yet these measures, not ‘tolerance,’ nor ‘leniency,’ nor ‘understanding,’ nor ‘compassion,’ nor ‘community service,’ are the ones that will mitigate our problems with poverty, vagrancy, vandalism, and more serious crimes.”

Would anyone care to argue with John Merrell?

Remember the immense improvement in the condition of New York City when Mayor Rudy Giuliani sent forth its police to enforce all the laws, including the ones pertinent to “quality of life?” You don’t have to be that old to recall those years. Giuliani’s success in making the Big Apple a pleasant place to live, work, and shop was why he acquired the sobriquet “America’s Mayor.” Contrast the Giuliani years with those of the odious crypto-Communist Bill de Blasio.

I remember it quite well; as it happens, I moved to NYC for the very last thrashing about of the Dinkins mis-administration, and the difference when Giuliani took the City Hall reins was impossible to miss. There’s really no credible way to deny that the man singlehandedly saved NYC from itself, although certainly there are plenty of fools who tried then and still do today.

Of course, since I lived on the LES the professionally designed and printed posters plastered all over downtown featuring a pic of Rudy with a Hitler-style brush moustache and thinning combover, denouncing him as a “Nazi” and “literally Hitler,” were equally impossible to miss. Alas, New Yorkers have for many years been people who simply don’t understand what’s good for them; like a child balking at the taste of his medicine, they’d just as soon stay sick, thanks.

There is only one issue that matters in the elections of the years before us: law and order. No candidate who refuses to make that his one and only priority should receive even a single vote. Unless and until peaceable Americans are once more able to go about their lives without fear, this nation will come ever closer to chaos and disintegration. Whether anything could be reclaimed from the wreckage is dubious.

The traditional norms of public deportment, from the prohibition of violence all the way to standards of decency, must be enforced humorlessly and without exception. Nothing else will serve. What people choose to do in the privacy of their homes is of no moment.

Agreed, wholeheartedly. But nobody should be laying down any significant sum betting that it’s at all likely to happen. The chaos, division, and strife sown by the Evil Left has been working way too well for them to expect they’d dream of tolerating such a thing. There’s only one effective way to deal with their recalcitrance, a macabre last resort that we’re all perfectly well aware of. They seem bound and determined to leave us with no other choice but to kill them off in job lots—and with every passing day, I grow more convinced that they ought to get their wish.

The Devil’s right hand

Evil wears many faces in Amerika v2.0 these days. Probably the ugliest of these ugly mugs belongs to George Soros.

From the perspective of someone who values life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, there is no more dangerous man today than George Soros. This is not hyperbole, it is the simple truth. While we don’t plan to paint a picture of a man standing behind the scenes, rubbing his hands together and cackling as he plays puppet master over each and every attack on freedom around the world, Soros acts as a strawman and a caricature of what is actually going on in the world.

George Soros, his money, and his NGOs are bankrolling and influencing public policy and opinion from the local level all the way up to the national level. Entire nations have been made to bow to the Soros agenda, but perhaps more importantly for our purposes, key local officials in government are increasingly wholly owned subsidiaries of the Soros machine.

Ever wonder why urban terrorists can burn down cities with no consequences but the McCloskeys are prosecuted for defending their home against the same? The answer is George Soros, his money, and his influence.

George Soros understands this and has been quietly funding a campaign to place district attorneys amenable to his agenda across the United States.

The Los Angeles Times – hardly the Epoch Times – describes this as “a years-long campaign by liberal groups to reshape the nation’s criminal justice system.” You should believe them when they tell you this, because that is precisely the goal. Not the litigation of the 10-yard fight that is the minutiae of law in America, but the radical reshaping of the legal system as we know it.

Part of this is just the very nature of bureaucracy, the plainer term for what people mean when they talk about “the deep state.” The government rests on men doing things, chief among these are what Vladimir Lenin called “special bodies of armed men”: cops, courts, and jails. According to Lenin, this is the very essence of the state. Libertarians will sympathize with this definition of the state. At its core, the state is a man with a gun who will throw you in a cage or kill you if you fail to comply. Everything else is just window dressing.

The local prosecutor is a chokepoint in the special bodies of armed men. The attorney general isn’t euphemistically called “top cop” for no reason and in his own way, the local prosecutor is also a “top cop,” albeit with a much smaller jurisdiction. This also means that he has more direct control over the individuals in his district, as the attorney general deals more in broad brushstrokes.

Who is your local DA? George Soros knows. He might very well be his paymaster.

If you want to understand one of the uppermost reasons why our current situation is so impossibly complex, difficult to comprehend, and grim, read the rest of this deep-dive exposé and you’ll know all about it. We’ve been losing the Long War for many long years now, a struggle that could very easily end in total defeat for Team Liberty simply because it was never a fair fight. We’ve been playing a crooked, rigged game, and the odds against us now are so daunting because villainous, über-rich curs like the vile Soros have stacked the deck. It’s who they are, it’s what they do.

Unacceptable, intolerable

It’s time, and past time, to start offing fascists.

Antifa is currently attacking protesters at the Korean spa in California that allowed a biological male customer to flash their penis at women and girls because of their “gender identity.”

Among those attacked by the militant leftists, so far, include a woman, a journalist, a preacher and a Latino couple.

A video of an outraged woman confronting the staff at Wi Spa in Los Angeles about the naked man walking around in the women’s changing room went viral last week.

Following the video going viral, a protest was planned at the spa for July 3. It began peacefully, with protesters defending the privacy and rights of women and girls on one side of the street and Antifa on the other.

It became violent when Antifa crossed the street and began assaulting the protesters.

Naturally, the violent pAntiFags were verbally haranguing the normal, sane citizens for being “transphobic,” “homophobic,” and all the rest of the usual Leftard horseshit throughout.

The line from WW2-era Naziism to Amerika v2.0’s present-day Left runs straight and true, with the differences between the supposedly less-radical Democrat-Socialist Party and its own Waffen SS stormtroopers being ones not of kind but of degree. These scum have all but overrun America That Was, burrowing into every institution, civic organization, and neighborhood and working tirelessly to destroy them all from within. If however many Real Americans are left don’t want to see the Leftyfascists accomplish their deadly mission in full, they must resolve to do whatever it takes to stop them before it’s too late.

We are at war. Not rhetorical war, not a “war of ideas,” not “cold” war—REAL war, war to the knife. And, as the great Nathan Bedford Forrest knew: war means fighting, and fighting means killing.

Estimates of the body count from last year’s rioting range between 25 to 60 deaths, the ones I’ve seen. The January 6th protest saw poor Ashli Babbitt brutally murdered by a fascist pig who is being protected by the State, and who will never face justice for his crime. The Enemy has gone way, way, WAY beyond claiming “first blood” against us. We’ve all seen way too much of this shit by now. From here on out, anytime one of these fascist beatdowns does NOT wind up with at least one pAntiFa goon lying dead in the street, Real Americans must count it as a tactical defeat.

Enforced insanity

You will be made to go insane.

A few snapshots from the past few years:

In 2015, a famous male athlete puts on a dress and make-up. He then declares himself a female. Despite the athlete not having undergone “sex re-assignment surgery”, our cultural overlords immediately announce their agreement: the dress and make-up have indeed made the male a female. Not just a “female in spirit”, but an actual female.

Time magazine then proclaims the athlete its runner-up “Woman of the Year”. Glamour magazine goes all the way and proclaims him its “Woman of the Year”. Social media bans anyone who dares refer to the athlete by his original male name, uses male pronouns to refer to him, or in any way affirms the immutable reality of biological sex. At the same time, politicians begin passing laws to enforce the new orthodoxy.

The message was sudden, but clear: We must believe a lie. We must speak a lie. We must make ourselves unknow that a person’s biological sex is an unchangeable fact of nature. We must believe that a male who amputates his penis and testicles has thereby turned himself into a female—as opposed to just a male without a penis or testicles. We must believe that putting on a dress vaporizes, or at least renders meaningless, the sexual identity encoded within every cell of our bodies. We must believe that gender dysphoria never really existed, and that instead, a kind of spirit possession is at work. The idea is that a male or female soul—through some sort of never-explained cosmic mix-up—winds up trapped in the wrong body. What sounds like the premise of a bad ’70’s Disney movie is now the One True Truth.

In short, the message was, and still is, we must adopt beliefs about biological sex which, only a decade ago, mental health professionals would have deemed proof of psychosis. Now, we’re supposed to remain unbothered as those same mental health professionals demand we adopt their new psychotic vision. They demand we parrot the lie they all know is a lie. Insanity is the new sanity. Falsehood is the new truth. Bullying is the new compassion. State-enforced delusion is the new science. Magic is the new physics. Fantasy is the new reality. Man is the new woman, and woman is the new man.

Hate for the constraints of human biology has only spread since Bruce turned into Caitlyn. Just a few days ago, for example, the Miss Nevada USA pageant decided to crown a biologically male contestant. Kataluna Enriquez reportedly has completed her surgery—but again, all that “sex reassignment surgery” is, is the amputation or mutilation of sexual organs. Because that is true, the phrase “sex reassignment surgery” is itself a transparent lie. You can’t “reassign” or change biological sex. You can amputate a penis and testicles. You can amputate breasts, and remove a vagina and a uterus. You can flood bodies with lab-created hormones. You can wear make-up or dresses, top hats or tuxedos. But what you can’t do is change sex. In fact, you can’t even erase the effects of male sexual maturation decades later.

All fine and well, all perfectly true, and all anathema to the Madhouse Left. But to what end? What’s behind all this lunatic zealotry?

This sounds like a contradiction. It isn’t. It perfectly expresses a core driver of Wokism: a seething, pathological, violent, sociopathic, hate of everything that is: all truth, all reality, all nature, all existence, all constraint, all law, all sense, all decent aspiration, everything. This is far beyond mere antinomianism. For the Wokists, whatever is must be extinguished. This is what their all-consuming hate requires.

Meeting the new standard of pseudo-piety requires nothing less than our own self-induced insanity. Failure to self-induce insanity gets you “disappeared” from social media, fired, or physically attacked. At this rate, who can doubt the attacks could escalate into the murder of political dissidents? Not that the Wokestaat will do that directly (by the way, I just made up the word “Wokestaat”). No, they’ll just use their street thugs as proxy exterminators—just as they use Antifa and BLM rioters as proxy chaos agents, social media as proxy censors and spies, and mainstream “news outlets” as a proxy propaganda arm.

Chuckle if you want, but Wokism is the official religion of the United States government. And like all fanatics, there’s nothing the Wokists won’t do to force their stupid, pernicious ideas on to everyone. That includes every form of carrot and every form of stick.

Well, we all already knew how ludicrous their claim to exclusive membership in “the reality-based community” always was. Funny how you don’t hear them making that claim much these days, from which one might be inclined to draw some unflattering conclusions about them. But is that really all there is to this? Is there even more lurking just underneath the surface lunacy to be revealed? Might their agenda go much beyond driving us all as batshit nuts as they are themselves? Three guesses.

According to Victor Davis Hanson, the Biden Administration and the Democrats who run urban hotspots of crime cannot deal with the exploding violence rationally because they are too encumbered with ideological baggage. Their political outlook forces them to look for alternative explanations for a breakdown that can only properly be analyzed by those who are not wearing blinders.

Such commentators recognize the magnitude of our crime problem. But they also perhaps unjustifiably assume that the Democrats are headed for disaster by not addressing it. For me, however, it is not clear that Democratic politicians are being irrational when they trot out specious solutions. Let me start from an opposite premise, namely that everything the present administration is allowing to happen, and which creates chaos and aggravates violence, is aimed at increasing its control. Democratic policies follow Thomas Hobbes’ definition of power, as an ability to do those things necessary “to obtain some future apparent Good.” That obvious “Good” in this case is to establish the Democratic Party as the one national party, which can go on ruling indefinitely and make the electorate an accomplice in its drive for total power. 

From that perspective, Biden, or whoever pulls his strings, and other Democratic luminaries are doing what is necessary to further their power grab. The “disorder” or “crisis” at the border, which the Democrats have done nothing to stop, is clearly meant to increase the size of the Democratic electorate, starting with turning Texas blue. Getting rid of the filibuster, packing the Supreme Court, and nationalizing elections with the passage of HR 1 are all efforts to achieve the same end: empowering the Democrats and reducing their often-minimal opposition to total impotence.

The steps taken to increase urban crime and then to ban weapons that have little or nothing to do with the crimes in question belong to the same design. The Democrats have been actively promoting civil unrest since last summer, when they defended Black Lives Matter, raised millions to bail out the apprehended vandals, and, in the cases of Kamala Harris and Maxine Waters, incited further criminal activities.

It’s not as if the Democrats are clueless about what’s going on or are blinded by ideological passions. They have used violence to propel themselves into power by blaming Donald Trump for what they themselves abetted.

Ahh, the same old thing these whackadoos are always grubbing for more of, then: power, and control.

“Our bossy society is completely losing sight of the value of risky behavior”

Gee, ya think? Yet again: not an accident, not a coincidence. Part. Of. The. Plan.

Most of today’s regulatory framework for alcohol traces back to the immediate post-Prohibition years. The basic assumption was that alcohol consumption is bad but unavoidable. The goal, then, was to regulate in ways that led people to drink less, via high taxes and inconveniences, without returning to the bootleggers and speakeasies of the disastrous Prohibition era.

Though things have lightened up a bit since then, that’s still the basic philosophy today. Alcohol discussions tend to turn on things like liver damage, impaired driving, violence and so on.

These negative consequences are real. But as Slingerland makes clear, they aren’t the whole story. There are a lot of less-heralded positives.

All simply part of the yin-yang tug-of-war that suffuses every last aspect of life on this planet. A properly Constitution-calibrated government would never dream in interfering in such niggling personal choices, without reference to either negative or positive consequences as justification. That’s because a properly Constitution-calibrated government would know that such choices are simply none of the government’s business, and would therefore stay in its own lane.

Of course, drinking isn’t all upside, but that isn’t the point. The point is that it’s not all downside, either — yet we regulate it, essentially, as if it were. We need a more balanced approach.

And it isn’t just alcohol. As our culture has veered in an increasingly bossy and punitive direction, the tolerance for any sort of downside is vanishing. The “playground movement” at the beginning of the last century argued “better a broken arm than a broken spirit.” Today’s society takes a different approach.

Just letting children play unsupervised outdoors can draw a visit from Child Protective Services nowadays, and bureaucrats aren’t the least bit concerned with protecting the children from having their spirit broken by too little play.

During the pandemic, we saw a degree of safety-ism that discounted the value of humans getting together in the face of tiny or even notional risks, leading to absurdities like ocean paddle-boarders being arrested for paddling maskless. There’s much more value in the activity than risk in being unmasked at sea.

The list of cases where killjoys focus excessively on the negative is huge, and anyone reading this can think of many examples. But what do we do about it?

Oh, that’s the easiest question of all to answer, although in perfect accord with that tug-of-war between yin and yang thing I mentioned earlier, it simultaneously presents us with the toughest choice: kill the killjoys, until the ones we haven’t gotten around to yet are too terrified to open their fat yaps ever again.

Putting the helots in their place

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yep, this story really has it all.

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

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

DOOOOOMED!!!

Everybody got their last will and testaments current and their life insurance paid up?

Top experts have likened the COVID-19 “Delta Variant” to the common cold and hay fever. This comes as people like Anthony Fauci, Boris Johnson, and the WHO are pushing for more social distancing, lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccinations.

Experts in the United Kingdom have compared the symptoms of the COVID-19 “Delta Variant” to that of hay fever and the common cold, according to various reports. The new strain has reportedly been the cause of 99% of all new COVID-19 cases in the UK. “The main symptoms of COVID-19 appear to have changed — with headaches and sore throats now more common than fevers and coughs, according to a warning by UK experts,” noted the New York Post.

Dr. Fauci continues to assert that “the Delta variant is currently the greatest threat in the US to our attempt to eliminate COVID-19,” which reportedly has accounted for 20% of all new COVID-19 cases in the United States. Fauci maintains that COVID-19 vaccines can protect people from the “Delta Variant,” adding that young, unvaccinated people are “more vulnerable than ever.”

However, many Americans are skeptical about the COVID-19 vaccinations they’ve received amid reports of the “Delta Variant” infecting individuals after they’ve been fully vaccinated. As was reported by the Wall Street Journal, “About half of adults infected in an outbreak of the Delta variant of Covid-19 in Israel were fully inoculated with the Pfizer Inc. vaccine, prompting the government to reimpose an indoor mask requirement and other measures to contain the highly transmissible strain.”

On May 13, Joe Biden told America to “get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do,” prompting hundreds of millions of Americans to eventually receive their COVID-19 vaccines.

I will not comply, and you and your grubby little bureau-stooges can all go fuck yourselves. Preferably, with something razor sharp, rusty, and very, very girthy.

Days of future past

Bear writes a letter of explanation to a future that is by no means assured.

Dear Future Generations,

How did this happen? How did America go insane, and destroy itself? How did…

  • Renaming “French Fries” to “Freedom Fries” become the same as “I don’t like what you said, so I’m going to dox you so someone can find and physically attack you, destroy your business, cancel your social media presence, close your bank accounts, and hound the would-be survivors to death” cancel culture?
  • “Silence is violence” but “violence is speech” become a respected take?
  • Looting is reparations?
  • 2 + 2 = 4 is racist?
  • Equality in opportunity is equity in outcome?
  • Politicians actively agree to actively violate state election laws to aid the opposing party?
  • A human with XY chromosomes is female, not male?
  • And we’ll pass laws forcing everyone to believe that (or at least actively fake it)?

That’s but a taste of a necessarily lengthy list, arriving here:

Future generations, I did not make up any of that. It was (is, as I type) real. How, you ask. It started generations ago. In America; the roots go back to the 19th century and more. But I’ll give you the short form. Maybe you’ll find books that survived the burning that has started, that will explain more details.

It’s a long ‘un, of which you should certainly read the all. Really, though, the explanation is summed up concisely by the very next ‘graph:

People wanted power over others. America had a Constitution that limited their ability to simply seize it, so they tried something else.

Annnnd BINGO. The same old problem, whose only solution is extremely distasteful to every decent human being of sound mind. Yet those same decent, peaceable people will forever be forced to embrace said unpleasantness nonetheless, which is no more nor less than the price of liberty. The day any particular generation declines to shoulder the cost of securing and maintaining their freedom and natural rights is also the day they admit themselves unworthy of them. Taken all together, these are the overarching paradoxes of life on this existential plane.

What will be done with (or to) Amerika v2.0s useful idiots after the Revolution?

The usual old thing, that’s what.

Youthful leftism is anarchic. It’s CHAZ, BLM, and Antifa. It’s open air heroin markets, smashed store windows, and political assassinations. Turning that anarchy into collectivism requires hysterical propaganda and rallies that appear anarchic, but are actually tightly controlled, ideas that seem edgy, but are actually the work of men who were born during the age of the steam.

If you think Bernie’s old, Karl Marx celebrated his 203rd birthday in May.

Youthful leftist revolutions break the system while leftist gerentocrats impose the tyranny.

Making tyranny look like freedom requires hefty doses of chaos and outrage that make it appear that the system is being broken when it’s actually being built up. Or as George Orwell wrote in 1984, “One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.” The revolution is the thing it’s revolting against.

The end of history keeps arriving only to vanish like a mirage when the youth reach for it.

The moment of epochal change can never be allowed to arrive because it would interrupt the permanent crisis. Salvation is always here and also always out of reach. But there’s always a new generation available to be fooled again because they know the past doesn’t matter.

The Left has no new ideas. Like Hollywood, it makes old ideas seem new by rebooting them, by making them appear hip and trendy, and by destroying a meaningful connection with the past. And that way audiences don’t realize they’re just seeing the same movie remade over again. What might be creative bankruptcy in a movie theater is a more seriously sisyphean problem described by Churchill as, “Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.”

The destruction of statues and burning of books forces ‘presentism’ for the past to conform to the dogmas of the moment. The biggest problem with the past isn’t that it’s politically incorrect, but that it’s repeating itself.

The social activism is window dressing. A proper Marxist regime has little use for militant minorities, feminism, gay rights, police defunding, transgender bathrooms, pipeline protests, abortion, or any of the other issues the radicals have been using to waste our time. If you doubt that, go look at how many of any of the above you can find in China, Cuba, or North Korea.

The Russian Futurists vowed to throw the art and literature of the past overboard from the “steamship of modernity”. But the Bolsheviks were not looking for disruptive art and when the revolution arrived, modern art was tossed overboard and the former revolutionaries settled down to producing socialist realism and recreating the art of the past for the Soviet Union.

After a brief permissive period, the Soviet Union criminalized homosexuality and insisted on traditional marriages and roles for women. Those feminists who resisted were soon shown their place with one of the more notorious free love figures being forcibly married off by Lenin.

I’m good with it, pretty much, provided I survive long enough to see at least a few of the miserable bastards blindfolded, put up against a wall, and shot through their empty fucking heads.

Up and up and up some more

BidenFlation, let’s call it.

Okay, I’m gonna go way out on a limb here and suggest that this CAN’T be a sign of anything good.

All this, mind, in only one (1) year. Actually, less, since the drooling moron and his Shadowman handlers only usurped power a few short months ago.

Duke Nukem

Well, you gotta admit: with last night’s speech, so-called “****President****” Biden has officially guaranteed himself a truly well-earned position in the world history books: he’s now the very first national “leader” in all of human history to threaten his own country with air strikes and nuclear war.

No, really. I only wish I was kidding.

The real point of Biden’s speech was grabbing guns. (If the filibuster holds, Biden lacks the political might to pass gun-grabbing laws.) His problem is that the cities with the worst violent crime already have gun-grabbing laws.

Biden also insisted that the only reason to have weapons and ammo is deer hunting:

Background checks for purchasing a firearm are important; a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines — no one needs to have a weapon that can fire over 30, 40, 50, even up to 100 rounds [Me: 100 rounds? Someone’s been getting into the Geritol] unless you think the deer are wearing Kevlar vests or something; community policing and programs that keep neighborhoods safe and keep folks out of trouble.

The Second Amendment has nothing to do with deer-hunting — and it’s not the government’s job to tell us what we need to defend ourselves, including against a tyrannical government. And that leads us to Biden’s incoherent, yet frightening attack on the Second Amendment:

The Second Amendment, from the day it was passed, limited the type of people who could own a gun and what type of weapon you could own. You couldn’t buy a cannon.

Those who say the blood of lib — “the blood of patriots,” you know, and all the stuff about how we’re going to have to move against the government. Well, the tree of liberty is not watered with the blood of patriots. What’s happened is that there have never been — if you wanted or if you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.

Apparently, Thomas Jefferson was wrong when he said that “the Tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” In Biden’s America, if you face the government, you’d better come prepared, unless you’re an unarmed civilian whom the Capitol Police welcome into the Capitol. Then, you’re more dangerous than a nuclear bomb.

Actually, I’ve been laughing about this all day today. The guy with his hand up the back of Senile Grampy Gropey’s shirt making his mouth move has well and truly stepped in it with this blunder. From what I’m seeing cruising around the Innarwebs, whatever remnants of the US military rank and file (ie, the real soldiers, not their LGBTQRXP39 replacements) that might have been at least somewhat willing to comply with the increasingly questionable orders handed down from Higher are now brushing up against outright mutiny, openly declaring that they have no intention to nuke, say, Indiana or strafe Little Rock or Greensboro just because Gropey’s handlers say they want that shit done.

With this batshit-insane threat, The Power quite obviously hoped to cow the political opposition into silence and submission. Instead, what they’ve accomplished is to reveal, for larger numbers of normal people to see than ever before, the now-inarguable fact that the REAL threat to liberty, the Constitution, and the overall well-being of the US lies not with Trump supporters, Whypeepo, or any other of the various subgroups whose sole wish is to be left the hell alone, but with THEM.

Andrea goes on to remind us of a Larry Correia classic from 2018, posted after the loathsome Eric “Bang Bang Fang Fang” Swallowswell issued a similar ineptly-veiled threat. I excerpted it back then, IIRC, but seeing as how the problem with the Left’s genocidal argument remains the same as it was then, it bears revisiting.

We are so divided it’s like we are speaking two different languages. Hell, on this topic we are on two different planets. And it is usually framed with a sanctimonious left versus right, enlightened being versus racist hillbilly, unfailing arrow of history versus the knuckle dragging past sort of vibe.

But basically it boils down to one side making the argument: The idea of the 2nd Amendment resisting a tyrannical government is obsolete, because the federal government is too overwhelmingly powerful, and has too many advanced technologies.    
First, let’s talk about the basic premise that an irregular force primarily armed with rifles would be helpless against a powerful army that has things like drones and attack helicopters.

This is a deeply ironic argument to make, considering that the most technologically advanced military coalition in history has spent the better part of the last two decades fighting goat herders with AKs in Afghanistan and Iraq. Seriously, it’s like you guys only pay attention to American casualties when there’s a republican in office and an election coming up.

Nobel Peace Prize Winner Barack Obama launched over five hundred drone strikes during his eight years in office. We’ve used Apaches (that’s the scary looking helicopter in the picture for my peacenik liberal friends), smart bombs, tanks, I don’t know how many thousand s of raids on houses and compounds, all the stuff that the lefty memes say they’re willing to do to crush the gun nut right, and we’ve spent something like 6 trillion dollars on the global war on terror so far.

And yet they’re still fighting.

Better yet, the FUSA is currently scheduled to do the tail-tucked scoot ‘n’ scurry in humiliating defeat from that primordial shithole on the jawdroppingly ironic date of 9/11 of this very year. Which, basically, means that a relative handful of under-armed, illiterate, goat-humping Neanderthals won. They rode to victory against “the world’s strongest military” on fucking mules, handily running us out of the most god-forsaken trash heap ever to be misnomered a “nation,” against all odds and in spite of absofuckinglutely everydamnedthing.

Larry then runs some numbers whose resultant sum would be enough to kibosh the Left’s gun-grabbing wet dream for all time, if any of those slope-shouldered dweebs had even one functioning brain cell—which, clearly, they do not. After that, he gets down to the forever-relevant meat of the matter.

In something that I find profoundly troubling, when I’ve had this discussion before, I’ve had a Caring Liberal tell me that the example of Iraq doesn’t apply, because “we kept the gloves on”, whereas fighting America’s gun nuts would be a righteous total war with nothing held back… Holy shit, I’ve got to wonder about the mentality of people who demand rigorous ROEs to prevent civilian casualties in a foreign country, are blood thirsty enough to carpet bomb Texas.

You really hate us, and then act confused why we want to keep our guns? But I don’t think unrelenting total war against everyone who has ever disagreed with you on Facebook is going to be quite as clean as you expect.

There will be no secure delivery of ammo, food, and fuel, because the guys who build that, grow that, and ship that, well, you just dropped a Hellfire on his cousin Bill because he wouldn’t turn over his SKS. Fuck you. Starve. And that’s assuming they don’t still make the delivery but the gas is tainted and food is poisoned.

Oh wait…Poison? That would be unsportsmanlike! Really? Because your guy just brought up nuclear weapons. What? You think that you’re going to declare war on half of America, with rules of engagement that would make Genghis Khan blush, and my side would keep using Marquis of Queensbury rules?

Oh hell no.

See, one of the things you guys on the left don’t realize is that there’s that whole “Othering” thing. You do it all the time without thinking about it. Where you just ascribe increasingly terrible things to people, like all gun owners are murderous, racist, kill crazy, redneck, dumb ass peckerwoods who want children to die, to the point that to you, we’re this unimaginable, evil, Other, so it’s okay to threaten to murder us, and feel good about yourself. Because we’re bad, and you’re the good guy, and thus totally justified in all you do.

Yet you assume that the people who gravitate toward the career fields you’ll need to wage war on us will feel the same way you do.  When in reality most of them think you’re posturing, elitist, ignoramuses who don’t know the first thing about guns, crime, violence, or America.

Now this is where I’ll part ways with most of my libertarian brethren, because they are quick to point out that there are plenty of places where cops enforce existing gun or drug laws. The part they’re missing is that most people are complicated, and they’ve got lines they won’t cross.

In this case, the target isn’t some Other, it’s not just their people, it’s them. And an active shooting war between the government and half the population? That’s a pretty big fucking line. And we’re not talking about people they are already inclined not to like, but rather they’re supposed to go shoot their doctor and their mechanic for doing something that up until a few days ago was legal and they were doing themselves. A small percentage will be happy to put on the jack boots and start loading people into cattle cars. But a larger percentage will say nope, I’m calling in sick, don’t feel like getting blown up today.

And another big chunk will actively help the insurgents, because they fucking hate you and everything you stand for. Like seriously, out of touch liberals, how many small town sheriff’s deputies do you think would describe themselves as “progressive”?

Now this will vary wildly depending on jurisdiction. Some places, no problem. People will comply. Others because of the culture, they won’t. Yet, in the places where they are the least likely to comply, those are the places where you are the most likely to have the local authorities be actively on the side of the insurgents. (this is kind of a no brainer to anybody who has ever looked at any guerilla war ever in history). Which means that the occupiers then have to import outsiders to do the deed, but then the presence of outsiders piss off the rest of the local fence sitters, and now everybody is getting blown up.

This is why smart progressives prefer to boil the frog slowly.

To pull off confiscation now you’d have to be willing to kill millions of people. The congressman’s suggestion was incredibly stupid, but it was nice to see one of you guys being honest about it for once.  In order to maybe, hypothetically save thousands, you’d be willing to slaughter millions. Either you really suck at math, or the ugly truth is that you just hate the other side so much that you think killing millions of people is worth it to make them fall in line. And if that’s the case, you’re a sick bastard, and a great example of why the rest of us aren’t ever going to give up our guns.

Annnnd DINGDINGDINGDINGDING! We have a WINNAH!!!

The dipshit, arrogant fumblefucks currently misruling our ex-country have really stepped in it this time. Some Dissident Rightists out there advocate for “accelerationism,” which revolves around the notion that the best strategy for Our Side to adopt is the hastening of the inevitable collapse using various methods. So whodathunk that The Enemy would take such a tremendous stride down the accelerationist path as this, on their own clueless initiative? There’s no way to know how many heretofore inattentive Americans will be radicalized as word of this fantabulous flub spreads, but I’d guess a very substantial chunk has been lopped off the wait-time for the long-overdue Day of Reckoning.

And hey, that’s just fine with me. Do us all a favor and keep talking, idiots.

Update! Action, reaction.

U.S.—The nation scrambled to buy F-15s and nuclear weapons after President Biden said in a speech Wednesday that you’ll never beat a government unless you have the fighter jets and intercontinental ballistic missiles.

All over the nation, American citizens were seen parking their brand-new F-15s in their driveways and garages. Some wealthier Americans purchased the F-22, while less fortunate citizens were forced to buy the F-35 joint fighter. But no matter what craft they chose, American citizens said they were just glad to finally be protected against a tyrannical government.

“I need an F-15 to beat the government? Say no more, fam!” said one man in New Hampshire as he happily rushed out to his local F-15 dealer to pick up the latest model. “Before, I thought my AR-15 would be enough, but when Biden pointed out that the U.S. government has fighter jets and I only have an assault rifle, I realized I really needed to beef up my anti-tyranny defense systems.”

“Thanks, Mr. Biden! I sure am glad you reminded me of how brutal a government can be against its own citizens and how governments throughout history have in fact attacked their own people once they are disarmed and helpless.”

A nice black market F15 makes a perfect companion-piece to your AR15, or so I’ve read. Acquiring one is really the only proper response to Gropey’s threat, and will add a dash of spice to any home’s décor. Meanwhile, BCE takes a look ahead at how it’s going to go down.

Now,
If something goes sideways, it’ll be the FedGov depending on FedAgents to enforce and be the bully boys like Bracken wrote about in “Enemies F&D”. The DotMil, while being currently pozzed out of it’s mind, it’s not completely stupid. Outrageous dumbasshattery aside, the Troops?  They can get ordered all. day. long. to -do- shit, but ain’t shit gonna get done. If anything, the DotMil is going to ‘hunker in the bunker’ and stay the fuck out of the whole thing, ‘cos like I said, their families come first. In fact, watch for a migration of off-base peeps moving ON base if you want to have a strong indicator shit’s about to get really reelz. It’ll take word of mouth to get that sort of news though…not that the Ministry of Propaganda is going to say anything. I have a lot of Chair Farce kids from McDill who live in my A.O…you can be sure if they all start pulling up with rental trailers and vans to load some shit into them all around the same time, it’ll be noticeable. Means they’re getting the fam out from possible reprisals.

Now, as far as FedGov workers outside of the DotMil? Whereas the majority of the morons who’re still working in Leviathan? At some point, anyone who’s working there has to now know, without a doubt, that they’re on the wrong side. The FedGov has been revealed as fuckin’ corrupt as the day is long. The FBI? Evil. Period. Fucking. DOT. I mean yeah, lotsa folks went in with the “I’m doing this for my country ‘cos I’m a patriot and want to make a difference!”

Lots of us joined the DotMil for the same reason.
That lasted until week 3 or 4 of Basic…

Fine and Dandy to be all “I’ll drone those Islamic errrr… right wing whypeepo superpreemercists to death!!!” when you’re located a full continent away and your family safely ensconced in home and hearth.

So here’s the thing fat: when your at work, “doin’ the do” -someone- kicks in your front door, and butchers every. single. person. in your house, as well as the family pets. And then waits for you to get home, and does you too, AFTER showing you the severed heads of your fam, and letting you know that this is the price you pay for taking Leviathan’s Groat. Your failure at that point is complete and total. No memory/progeny for you. Your. Line. Ends. 

Probably get the whole thing on vidya and uploaded to whatever the flavor-of-the-week host that shows utterly gruesome shit out there.
Maybe ogreish will make a comeback?
Tough call, but the revolution will be broadcast in all it’s horrorshow and ultraviolence.
Best to note it if’n your part of the problem, as you’ve legitimized your participation on what’s turning out to be the wrong team.  Everyone will eventually get ‘touched’ by this shitspatter.

It’s unavoidable.

I keep on saying that these fools badly, badly need to rethink a few things and dial it back several notches, if only for their own damned good. But they keep on not doing it.

Yeah, thanks, no

Yes, it’s racist, and it’s discriminatory. But hey, I’m perfectly fine with it.

Clueless in Seattle: Human Rights Group OKs Charging White People ‘Reparation Fee’ to Attend Pride Events
The Seattle Human Rights Commission is not only cool regarding a “pride” event that will charge those evil white people a “reparations fee” to enter, they also suggest those who complained should “educate” themselves on the harm they might cause by attending.

I’ll be sure to keep that in mind, thanks. Meanwhile, here’s another Left Coast loonie bin that needn’t lose any sleep worrying about my baggy white ass attending any events thereabouts. Like, y’know, ever.

Tourism bosses in Portland have taken out a full-page advert in the New York Times admitting the riot-hit city has an ‘edge’ – but urging visitors to come anyway.

Travel Portland – a nonprofit which oversees the Oregon city’s tourism marketing – referenced reports of far-left violence in the city in the ad.

It admits that much of what has been said about Portland – whose 50-strong riot squad resigned last week – was true, and that the city, which endures nightly riots, has an ‘edge.’

‘You’ve heard a lot about us lately,’ the NYT ad begins. ‘It’s been a while since you’ve heard from us.’

‘Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What’s most important is that we’re true to ourselves.’

The advert goes on to highlight Portland’s problems – and implies that locals don’t mind the out-of-control behavior that has made much of the city’s downtown area a no-go zone after dark.

It says: ‘We’re a place of dualities that are never polarities. Two sides of the same coin that keeps landing right on its edge. Anything can happen. We like it this way.’

Glad to hear it.

‘This is the kind of place where new ideas are welcome – whether they’re creative, cutting-edge or curious at first glance. You can speak up here. You could be yourself here.’

I can “be myself” right where I’m at, too, with little to no risk of being attacked and/or murdered in one of your world-renowned riots included in the package. Actually, I’ve never had the least problem “being myself” in any of the numerous places I’ve traveled over the years. To the undisguised chagrin of the locals now and then, sure, but I went right on being myself anyway. They got over it, or so I assume.

‘We have some of the loudest voices on the West Coast. And yes, passion pushes the volume all the way up. We’ve always been like this. We wouldn’t have it any other way.’

Have a ball, y’all. Fret not, somebody will be along to put out all the fires eventually. Possibly.

‘We have faith in the future. We’re building it every day the only way we know how, by being Portland. Come see for yourself.’

Been there, saw it, no need to see it again. And that was years ago, before it became the violent, anarcho-tyrannical dumpster fire (literally) it is today. So yeah, hard pass. HARD.

Put-up job Part the Second

As promised, the Sundance analysis I mentioned last night.

The Tucker Carlson Solution to Deal With a Corrupt Intelligence Apparatus and FBI Will Not Work, Here’s Why
Last night and tonight, Fox News host Tucker Carlson led off the show with discussion of the “January 6th Insurrection” narrative.

On Tuesday night Carlson and Darren Beattie suggested some form of senate Church Committee 2.0 should be initiated in order to investigate the U.S. intelligence community, and specifically the FBI for their role in coordinating or facilitating the January 6th events.  On Wednesday night Carlson again recommended the U.S. congress should start investigating.

Putting aside the background motives of Tucker Carlson; and accepting he is making these recommendations in good faith; there is a fatal flaw in his suggestion – and the support from anyone else who would suggest the same or similar approach.  The fatal flaw is an obvious one that unfortunately too many people just will not, and cannot, accept…

The Legislative Branch of the federal government is part of the Intelligence Community corruption.  The oversight “gang of eight” (pictured above), are enablers and participants in the corrupt endeavors that Carlson wants them to investigate.

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) led by Chairman Adam Schiff, and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) led by Chairman Mark Warner, are part of the institutional corruption.  This is the problem, the core issue in the background, that too few people are recognizing as they begin to see the corruption within the intelligence community.  The legislative branch and the executive branch are working together; there is NO functioning oversight. 

The American people cannot currently expect congress to investigate the Intelligence Community (Church Committee 2.0) in the same way as historical reference may suggest, because the Senate (SSCI) is working in coordination with the exact corrupt intel system they are supposed to oversee. In essence, the *check* in the system is facilitating the intel corruption.

I can give you examples, actual empirical examples, of how this is currently constructed. We have recent references, several of them, to prove the Senate Intel Committee (SSCI) is working hand-in-glove with the agencies they are supposed to oversee. However, CTH is not alone in this depth of understanding; the executive branch of the United States government also knows this, and their behavior actually highlights their intent to cover up this issue.

Be sure to read the rest of it, and all of this one as well. Taken all together, it adds up to my oft-stated maxim: However suspicious or cynical you may think you are about FederalGovCo corruption, self-dealing, collusion and collaboration, and criminal malfeasance, the truth is that you are almost certainly nowhere NEAR cynical enough.

Running on empty

Perfect.

A company called Blink Charging has found a solution to the problem of electric cars running out of electricity.

It is called gasoline.

Internally combusted.

The Miami-based company has built a “mobile charger” – which generates up to (the usual advertorial weasel wording) 9.6 kilowatts of juice by burning dead dinosaur (or algae bloom or abiotic, whatever you like) liquid juice. At peak output, it can instill up to a whole mile of range into an EV in a minute.

And it only costs $6,500!

As opposed to $3 for a gallon of gas – that instills 20-plus miles of range.

It is almost certain that Blink – the company – is the recipient of taxpayola in some form – perhaps “infrastructure” manna, raining from the heavens after being filched from the pockets of those who may not have an EV themselves but are certainly going to help fund (and recharge) them.

Even if not, someone will be charged – because no one “invests” $6,500 of their own money into a charger unless they expect to be able to charge for it, sufficiently so as to recoup their investment and then some – else it’s not an investment at all. And in that case, it cannot last because there is only so much loss that can be absorbed. A restaurant that doesn’t charge what it costs to serve the food it puts on the table will eventually not be able to put food on the table.

Putting electricity in an EV works on the same principle.

Why not just cut out the middle man? Put the $3 gallon of gas directly into the car – and forget the electricity altogether?

Because the electric car must be coddled and rationalized and supported by any means necessary, however absurd and however expensive.

Because electric cars are “the future,” as decreed by those who stand to profit from them, in terms of money forcibly extracted by government and handed over to those who manufacture EVs and their peripherals, such as gas-burning portable chargers to keep get them moving again (briefly) when they stop moving.

And actually decreed, by law. By the government, which also stands to profit from their confected existing – via the control it acquires over people’s decreased freedom of mobility, which EVs reduce.

As well as limit.

And THAT is the real point of the whole sorry scam, of course. Every time, in every instance, you don’t have to look too far or too hard to figure what the barely-hidden goal is with these festering carbuncles, as opposed to what they claim it is. Because every time, in every instance, it’s always the same: power, and control.

War Crime

Remember last night when I mentioned the Nuremberg Code?

Over 170 Houston Hospital Employees Suspended Without Pay For Refusing COVID-19 Vaccine
Houston Methodist Hospital in Texas has suspended over 170 employees for two weeks without pay, after they refused to take the COVID-19 vaccine. The suspensions come after a new May policy requiring all 26,000 workers to get full courses of either the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccines by June 7 or face termination.

The hospital says 99% of its employees – 24,947 – are fully vaccinated, however a group of 178 workers who have refused and have now been punished.

Meanwhile, 117 employees are suing the hospital, claiming that they’ve been pressured into becoming ‘human guinea pigs’.

Which they have, and which just happens to be…problematic, shall we say.

The Nuremberg Code (German: Nürnberger Kodex) is a set of research ethics principles for human experimentation created by the USA v Brandt court as one result of the Nuremberg trials at the end of the Second World War. In a review written on the 50th anniversary of the Brandt verdict, Katz writes that “a careful reading of the judgment suggests that” the authors wrote the Kodex “for the practice of human experimentation whenever it is being conducted.”

The ten points of the code were given in the section of the judges’ verdict entitled “Permissible Medical Experiments”:

  1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.

Well how about that, a violation right out of the gate, and not the only one either. Clearly, HMH has wilfully flouted both the letter and spirit of Nuremberg. But there’s another slight problem.

The Kodex has not been officially accepted as law by any nation or as official ethics guidelines by any association. In fact, the Kodex’s reference to Hippocratic duty to the individual patient and the need to provide information was not initially favored by the American Medical Association. Katz observes that the Western world initially dismissed the Nuremberg Code as a “code for barbarians, but unnecessary (or superfluous) for ordinary physicians.”

So, no chance of Nuremberg providing any meaningful protection for people being strongarmed by Fascist goons into accepting the “vaccine” over their vehement objections, then. However, that doesn’t necessary mean the Code is entirely useless. At least it’s now been unequivocally established that the HMH personnel fall into the “barbarians” category, along with all others attempting to coerce people into yielding to Official Will™. Clarity is always a good thing, particularly these foggy days.

“There’s no hiding from the Left and hoping they’ll go away”

They can damned well be MADE to go away, though. And will, y’know, have to be.

You may not be interested in politics, but politics is interested in you.

Many Americans—focused on their businesses, careers, home, and family—prefer to ignore the political battles and attendant controversy dividing our country. But neutrality is no longer an option.

Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about Americans’ love of being left alone. He called it “individualism,” and he fretted that one of the risks to our experiment in self-government was the tendency to retreat from questions concerning the public—political questions—in favor of enjoying our private lives. The risk, he recognized, was that retreating would enable subversion of the whole polity by people manipulating it for their own gain.

Sound familiar?

Our society has morphed away from anything recognizable even ten years ago. For many, politics was always something away from home, away from daily life. It was somewhere else—often relevant mostly to small things like marginal differences in a tax bill. Not anymore. A corrosive trend has developed: as some become increasingly political and demanding, the cost for others of expressing an opinion—or even ignoring the wrong activist demand—has grown intolerably high. This distorts the public debate, giving the illusion that a vocal group of ideologues is representative of the mainstream, because the mainstream has been intimidated into silence. And as more mainstream Americans find themselves in a country they don’t recognize, they are realizing that remaining apolitical was a luxury of another time.

Political fanatics take advantage of normal people who try to play it down the middle. This holds true in ordinary businesses in Middle America, in elite liberal arts colleges, and in the New York Times newsroom. Many people would rather go about their work and ignore the political battles that increasingly divide our country. But the left will not leave you this option.

In the workplace, “woke” ideologues politicize ordinary activities, conversations, and speech. They compel employers, suppliers, partners, and advertisers to bend to their demands. They are intrusive and uncompromising. Even a rejection of politics is treated as political. Two companies that took the unusual step of banning workplace politics—Coinbase and Basecamp—received sharp media backlash and had numerous employees resign, outraged that their employer would no longer indulge their activism. You will have no choice but to take a side.

All the above ought sound familiar to CF readers, from the first line to the last. After all, they’re playing my song.

The Left will keep pushing and pushing and pushing—driven by hatred and contempt; blinded by mistaken belief in their own sublime righteousness and superiority; maddened by intractable lust for unchallenged and unrestrained power—until Real Americans push back, HARD. After many years of self-deception in hopes of somehow sustaining the increasingly-threadbare illusion of comity which became more obviously unachievable with every passing day, our choices have boiled down to only two: either take off the gloves and fight the filthy bastards for real, or lie passively back and let the Fascist-Left swine have their way with us.

We don’t have to like it, and probably shouldn’t. Doesn’t matter what we want or don’t want. The fact is, The Enemy will permit no abstentions. They intend to force Real Americans into a fight to the death. They want war. They should by-God get themselves one. The only way out of this is through it. Time is running out.

Revolting Rednecks

The Enemy is everywhere.

There’s a common misconception in the Survivalist community. “I’ll retreat…get away from the major population centers…work to live off the grid…and let the urban hellholes rot.”

Well…about that.

Rural living is, for all intents and purposes, a better way to live. We’re more in tune with the natural world by and large, not in spite of it, and for the most part the lifestyle lends itself well to harder people used to doing without. And for people like me, there’s nothing that replaces the generations-deep connections to your homeland. The people there are your people- and in spite of differences, there is a deeply ingrained love of place. It is home.

Sounds good until the problems begin to bubble up. The first issue is questioning exactly how many in those rural areas are actually self-sufficient. That answer is probably few. And the rates of addiction and substance abuse is in turn shockingly high, correlated with the inevitable poverty rate. This was not by accident. The trailer-hood is a thing. Opioids were dumped on our population by Big Pharma, just as with the rise of decentralized meth manufacturing two decades earlier, and the crack epidemic which made its way into rural America just the same as the well-publicized urban epidemics during the 1990s. Home invasions and thefts are the norm.

No, not quite the retreat paradise the suburbanites had envisioned…is it?

Dusting off the old sociology coursework, I’d argue rather convincingly that this creates a populace primed for violent revolution. Decades of institutionalized poverty have created a primed pump. This in turn is a reality that one group on the Left whole-heartedly is attempting to exploit (albeit self defeated at times): Redneck Revolt.

Redneck Revolt is active in spaces in which white supremacist groups also often recruit, including country music concerts, flea markets, gun shows, NASCAR events, rodeos and state fairs. Chapters provide firearms and first aid training, food and clothing programs and community gardens and host needle exchanges, potlucks and educational events.

Interesting bit there. While the Left is no stranger to infighting, at a possibly even worse level than their counterparts on the Right, Redneck Revolt admittedly is correct in focusing on rural areas as a  vanguard for fomenting revolution. This is reflective of the strategy employed by Che Guevara’s opinion on the same from his work Guerrilla Warfare. They are seeking to exploit the social and economic realities for their benefit. While the gun community snobs look down on guys with inexpensive gear, cheap weapons and optics, and a general lack of cool-guy bravado, they wholly embrace it. Its a more effective recruiting model than belittling a guy to whom $20 may mean the difference between if his kids eat why he can’t afford a NightForce and BCM AR-15.

As I keep telling you guys: Never, NEVER underestimate the enemy.

To ask it is to answer it

Not a silly question, necessarily. But if your country has reached the point where such an invidious comparison even comes to mind, then blithely dismissing or ignoring it is a serious mistake—because you’re already in trouble deep.

Is The United States On The Same Calamitous Path As Yugoslavia?
I am not here to present an in-depth analysis of the eventual breakup of Yugoslavia, only to examine the conditions that triggered it. I believe there are some interesting similarities to burgeoning conditions within the U.S., along with some distinct differences.

Economically, conservative states are greatly outperforming leftist blue states in terms of recovery exactly because they have removed pandemic restrictions. Blue states have become stimulus dependent and will likely need even more stimulus dollars as the year progresses. With red states in defiance of the global reset and pandemic restrictions, it is only a matter of time before Biden (like Milosevic) asserts the need for “unity,” and accuses those states that want freedom of seeking to “weaken the nation.”

This will probably happen before true hyperinflation bubbles over, but in the meantime prices on goods will continue to rise exponentially. States that show fealty to the federal government will receive their subsidies (their table scraps), while defiant conservative states will be cut off completely. The fracturing of the U.S. is inevitable at this point.

This is not to say that this is a bad thing in the long run. It is a necessary outcome for economic and personal freedom to survive. But, it is important that we learn from examples in history so that we can remain prepared. Some people will claim that the U.S. and Yugoslavia are nothing alike, but we are unfortunately much closer than we should be. America is no longer a free market society, and we haven’t been for decades. We are an increasingly socialist nation with all the frailties associated with such cultures.

One defining difference that could save us is our heritage of independence and the will to return to a self reliant system. For Yugoslavia, communism was all they knew, and adapting to an alternative economy was hard to imagine. Black markets arose out of necessity, but these are merely stop gap solutions to structural decay. There has to be a revolutionary return to free markets, production and sound money for a country to rebuild, but I believe this is possible in the U.S. given at least half of Americans want this already. They don’t need to be convinced.

And, like Yugoslavia, civil war will eventually follow American balkanization, but that is a discussion for another time. It is enough for now to understand that to solve the economic decline caused by socialist and communist policies, more of the same is not the answer. 

But…but…but more of the same is all they have, all they’ve ever had.

DOG BITES MAN!

Another of those “shocking but not surprising” stories.

A person believed to be among the highest-ranking defectors ever to the United States from the People’s Republic of China has been working with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) for months, sources inside the intelligence community have told RedState on condition of anonymity. The defector has direct knowledge of special weapons programs in China, including bioweapons programs, those sources say.

The information provided to RedState corroborates and clarifies Thursday evening’s reporting by journalist Adam Housley.

RedState’s sources say that’s partially true. FBI Director Christopher Wray was “ambushed” with the information, they say, and Langley was also unaware. Sources say DIA leadership kept the defector within their Clandestine Services network to prevent Langley and the State Department from accessing the person, whose existence was kept from other agencies because DIA leadership believes there are Chinese spies or sources inside the FBI, CIA, and several other federal agencies.

UPDATE 12:30 PM PDT, June 4, 2021

Sources tell RedState the defector has been with the DIA for three months and that he has provided an extensive, technically detailed debrief to US officials. In DIA’s assessment, the information provided by the defector is legitimate. Sources say the level of confidence in the defector’s information is what has led to a sudden crisis of confidence in Dr. Anthony Fauci, adding that U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) personnel detailed to DIA have corroborated very technical details of information provided by the defector.

Andrea Widberg asks a silly question:

Are our federal intelligence agencies compromised?
A lot of people have been wondering why, suddenly, the leftist establishment is embracing the idea that COVID came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (which is tied to the Chinese military) after denying the possibility for so long. The answer may lie in the fact that the Defense Intelligence Agency has for months been debriefing a high-level Chinese Communist Party defector — but withheld the information from other agencies until recently because of fears that those agencies are compromised. In other words, it’s a twofer: China did create and release the virus, and our federal government cannot be trusted.

Well, I mean, DUH. On both counts.

The really shocking information is why we’re suddenly hearing about all of this now.

No, the real shocker is that we’re hearing about it AT ALL.

If I had to guess, I’d say it’s very unlikely that those “spies or sources” inside the federal agencies are people from China or people of Chinese descent. Instead, and again I’m guessing, they’re probably college graduates who were taught that America is an evil country, or they’re Marxists who see China as the way to advance Marxism in America, or they are such fanatic NeverTrumps that they were willing to compromise America’s national security to destroy Trump’s chances of reelection.

Fair enough, although I see no reason, as in so many other contexsts, not to embrace the healing power of “and” here myself.

When the next true patriot comes to the White House, whether it’s Trump, DeSantis, or someone else,

IF, you mean. And a very, very big “if” at that.

that president needs to recognize that the federal bureaucracy must be cleaned out with the thoroughness and ferocity that Hercules brought to cleaning the filth in the Augean Stables.

Which is precisely what Trump vowed he’d do, and for whatever reason, did not. Which means that the job will have to be done by We, The People, if it’s to be done at all.

The real clean-up starts with the Biden crime family, which, we hope, will be brought to justice at the earliest possible opportunity.

Yeah, hope in one hand, shit in the other. See which one gets full the quickest.

Enemies, domestic

Wait, whut?!?

SINGAPORE — The United States imported a rare cargo of 1.033 million barrels of Iranian crude in March despite sanctions on Iran’s energy sector, data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed.

The cargo is only the second oil import by the United States from Iran since late 1991, data on EIA’s website showed.

Let’s cut to Jim Hoft for a perspective-enhancing review.

You cannot lead a country when you hate its people so much that you would rather import oil from a wicked terrorist regime than allow American workers to produce that same product.

Joe Biden’s first action as president was to shut down construction of the Keystone Pipeline and eliminating an estimated.52,100 American jobs in the process.

Canceling the Keystone Pipeline costs over 11,000 construction jobs and 42,100 jobs throughout the US during the construction process according to the US State Department.

Then in May Joe Biden and his handlers waved  American economic sanctions on Russia in order to streamline construction on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Germany.

And then, this happened.

The Biden Administration will suspend all oil and gas contracts in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge amid rising gas prices.

The national average price of gas per gallon in the US is $3.045 as of Tuesday, June 1.

Gas prices have spiked in Southern California to $6 per gallon.

Joe Biden is now freezing all oil and gas contracts in Alaska’s Arctic Refuge after canceling the Keystone X pipeline.

Recall, in a last minute push, the Trump Administration in late 2020 moved to auction off drilling rights in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The Enviro-Nazi left went berserk over Trump’s push to open up drilling in the region and now Biden is freezing all leases.

Hey, remember back when we were energy-independent there for a brief spell, with prices at the pump edging down towards the two-bucks-a-gallon range, even lower? Good times, good times. Now—after killing Keystone and throwing tens of thousands out of work, just before a servile polishing of the Russian knob for their OWN pipeline project—the people making the Biden puppet’s lips move have us illegally importing oil from a fanatical Mooselimb enemy. Not just any old Mooselimb enemy, either; the “Death To America!” bunch, no less.

Unbelievable, unacceptable, intolerable. I’m speechless, people. If you think these loathsome pricks aren’t actively trying to harm the country, tell me what they’d be doing differently if they were?

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion.
