Alarums

Tucker expounds on the practicalities of what Major “King” Kong once unforgettably referred to as “nuclear combat toe to toe with the Rooskies.”

The question of who blew up Russia’s energy pipelines to Europe, which is not just a question in the news, it’s a historical question, we’ve addressed it a couple of times already, is not really much of a question anymore. So, on television, they’re assuring you that obviously the Russians did it. Vladimir Putin sabotaged his own pipelines.

With his nation at war, Putin intentionally destroyed Russia’s most vital national asset. Now why, you ask yourself, would Putin do that? Well, because…actually no one’s explained why Putin would do something like that. Bad people do bad things. That seems to be the idea.

Former CIA Director John Brennan showed up on CNN the other day to add his version of the story and it was clear right away that this was no ordinary cable news segment. Brennan was instead conducting a scientific experiment designed to determine just how stupid CNN viewers are. Now, these are people who believe Joe Biden when he told them COVID was a pandemic of the unvaccinated. These are the ones who think men can become women just by saying, so clearly, they are highly credulous, but the question remains, just how credulous are they? What won’t they believe? Well, in the name of science, John Brennan decided to find out. Watch.

BRIANNA KEILAR, CNN ANCHOR: Do you think Russia is behind the sabotage of the pipelines?

BRENNAN: Well, I think all the signs point to some type of sabotage. These pipelines are only in about 200 feet or so of water and Russia does have an undersea capability, too, that would easily lay explosive devices by those pipelines. I think this is clearly an act of sabotage of some sort and Russia is certainly the most likely suspect.

Do you think the Russians did it? asked the anchor, do you think the man with four bullet holes in his head committed suicide?

Oh, yes, says John Brennan. The Russians are certainly the most likely suspect. Well, of course they are. Did you ever doubt it? Once Putin got done electing Donald Trump president and then finished creating Hunter Biden’s fake laptop and dropping it off at a mac repair shop in Delaware, Putin set about sabotaging his own natural gas pipelines, which were his main source of foreign currency and leverage over Europe.

That’s how tricky Vladimir Putin is. Obviously, his next move will be nuking Moscow, all part of his diabolical plan to achieve world domination by destroying himself.

That’s effectively what John Brennan told CNN’s viewers. Did they believe him? Sure, they did. John Brennan used to run the CIA. He knows which lies work. He’s an expert.

So the question is, where does that leave us? And that’s the problem. This act leaves us, the United States, with no option but total war with Russia. There is no off-ramp now. There is no way out. We are all in, no matter what that means, no matter where it goes.

Are you shocked by this? Was there a vote on this? Did someone ask your opinion? No, but it’s been happening for months in slow motion. It’s been hidden from public view by the near-total blackout imposed by America media outlets so you probably didn’t know any of the details. For example, in March, the Turkish government tried to broker a peace in Ukraine and they came very, very close. Wasn’t reported widely.

..So, that’s the demand. Putin must be removed from office. Putin, of course, has no intention of leaving. You would have to take him out. Now, you don’t have to like Vladimir Putin. You don’t have to like anything about Vladimir Putin. You can hate Vladimir Putin and most Americans do, but you can still understand how totally deranged talk like this is.

Actually, if Putin went ahead and nuked Mordor On The Potomac into oblivion I’d feel obliged to send the man a nice thank-you note. But hey, I’m sure that’s just me. Onwards.

It’s the definition of reckless. Consider their own descriptions. For years, Democrats and the defense establishment they control have told us that Vladimir Putin is crazy and evil and he may be. Let’s assume it’s true. They’ve said it. Is that the man you want to publicly threaten with extermination? This is the man who controls more than 6,000 nuclear warheads. So, if you push him hard enough, why wouldn’t he use those nuclear weapons? Well, by their own description of him, he would.

This is true lunacy. An entire country ignoring led by its leaders, leaders who specialize in ignoring the things that matter, imminent catastrophe. That’s not an overstatement. This is not the inflation rate ticking up two points or a loss of 15% of your 401k and this is a nuclear war.

Busses in New Jersey now have signs warning about radiation poisoning “September is National Preparedness Month. Do you know what you do in a radiation emergency?” No, you don’t. It doesn’t matter.

This is all make believe. It’s all play-acting. If you live in a big metro area, there’s not anything you’re going to do during a nuclear exchange because you’re going to be dead along with most other Americans. The overwhelming majority of Americans will be dead and those who survive will starve to death because all agriculture will be destroyed, along with billions of people around the planet.

So, it’s time to update your assumptions about the technology here. These are not the bombs that flattened Nagasaki. They are incalculably more powerful. You hit New York, you take out Miami.

So, a nuclear war means not that we get to take out the Black Sea fleet. It means the end of the world and people who work around this stuff understand it and they’re really afraid, but no one else seems to have any idea. Why is that?

Taking the Big Picture view of things, I’d suggest that it’s ultimately because We The People have shirked our sacred duty of doing what needs to be done to get our current “leadership” back under proper control.

On the other side

“Surprising”? Not if you’re truly awake to who and what American cops are nowadays, it ain’t.

Are Police Complicit in Media’s Attempt to Suppress Political Motive for Teen’s Killing?
How can the police say there is “no evidence” of a political motive when we have the accused’s own words suggesting that it was politically motivated?

North Dakota teenager Cayler Ellingson appears to be the latest victim of left-wing terrorism incited, then ignored by the national media. The lack of curiosity in the press about his senseless and apparently political murder is predictable, but what is surprising is the way local police appear to be following their lead.

Shannon Brandt, 41 and the accused in this case, told the authorities that Ellingson, 18, was a “Republican extremist” and that the two had been in a “political argument” before Brandt ran Ellingson over with his car late one night in September. Brandt told police that he feared Ellingson was calling other people to come and hurt him. But in a perplexing update, the North Dakota Highway Patrol stated there was “no evidence” of a political motive, or even that Ellingson was a “Republican extremist.”

How can the police say there is “no evidence” of a political motive when we have Brandt’s own words suggesting that it was politically motivated? And what is the purpose of the strangely gratuitous statement contradicting Brandt’s subjective, baseless characterization of Ellingson as an “Republican extremist?”

Foolishly, mulishly, the rest of the ‘graph strains mightily to give the cops the benefit of the doubt here, to wit:

The police almost appear to echo, if unintentionally, Brandt’s apparent belief that Ellingson’s murder would have been justified if he were a right-wing extremist. Ellingson’s politics, if he had any at all, are only relevant to the extent that Brandt’s perceptions of them motivated Brandt to kill.

Is the pattern repeating in the Ellingson case? Brandt was initially released on $50,000 bail before his charges were finally upgraded to murder, days later. The police are making what looks like a slipshod PR effort to defuse political controversy by suppressing rudimentary facts. The leftist media are all too happy for the help.

At this stage of the game, they can count on such help from 5-0 just as a matter of course. After looking on in horror and disgust throughout the pAntiFa/BLM riots, when cops all over the country sat on their hands as Real Americans were whaled on by the DemonRat Party’s pet goon squads, then provided said thugs with safe corridors to slip off into the night unmolested by the supposed enforcers of “law and order,” Our Side needs to sober up and dispossess themselves of the comforting fiction that the police are in any way With Us. Perhaps they never really were, I dunno. But it’s all too clear that, if it ever was so, that is no longer the case.

Update! Via Wes Renegade: As with the fish, the rot begins at the head and progresses from there.

Everyone feels it, but not everyone sees it: America’s greatest threat is not from Russia or China or from any other foreign government. America’s greatest threat is from our own government in Washington, D.C. When will the American people get that through their heads?

The globalist devils inside the Beltway manufactured and implemented the Covid scamdemic: the greatest act of tyranny inside U.S. borders since Lincoln invaded the South.

The globalist devils inside the beltway have turned Europe and the world into a giant military encampment with U.S. and NATO bases on the doorsteps of almost every country on the planet, which only incites nations to retaliate.

And the globalist devils inside the beltway have turned U.S. energy policies over to an extremist Green agenda that if fully implemented will turn the greatest nation to ever exist into a third world country. In fact, America is already headed in that direction.

America now has undoubtedly one of the most amoral, inept, incompetent and criminal governments, not only in the world today but in world history!

And as far as the mainstream media goes, it is truly nothing more than a Ministry of Propaganda for the Deep State.

I would like to believe that things would get better if Republicans took control of Congress this November and the White House in 2024, but the harsh reality is Republicans have a masterful way of talking a lot while changing almost nothing.

Well, of course. As they see it, that’s their job, their proper role in the whole charade. Accept that once and for all, and everything else will suddenly make perfect sense.

Gone in 60 70 seconds

The day what little remained of America That Was was murdered—on purpose, with malice aforethought, by evil, conniving bureaucrats.

On March 16, 2020, following a long weekend of negotiations and deals about the coronavirus, Donald Trump, Deborah Birx, and Anthony Fauci spoke at a White House press conference for the first time about nationwide lockdowns.

They handed out a sheet of paper – it mostly consisted of conventional health advice – that said in tiny print: “bars, restaurants, food courts, gyms, and other indoor and outdoor venues where groups of people congregate should be closed.”

Shut it all down. Everything. Everyone. As if the whole economy were a nightclub closing early.

This amounted to a full repudiation of not only the Constitution but also freedom itself. At the very least, it was a fundamental attack on the First Amendment guarantees of the freedom of religion because it attacked the rights of Christians, Jews, Muslims, and everyone.

All evidence suggests that Trump did not know that the tiny text was in there.

The reading of the text was left to the question and answer session.

Even when it was read by Fauci from the podium, Trump seemed distracted by something else, almost as if he did not hear or did not want to hear it. Later he bragged that the whole thing was his doing, but looking back at the history of that day, it is not so clear.

Let’s take this apart frame by frame to understand what happened in these 70 seconds as part of the Q&A session.

Which the author goes on to do, meticulously and deftly. Then:

Fauci reads the text and then he steps away from the microphone. He had just read what is in fact the most totalitarian instruction ever given by any government in the history of the world – I can’t think of another case of such a thing – that all human interaction must stop from sea to shining sea. After all, all congregate places include homes too. Then Fauci steps away from the microphone.

Here you can watch the full 70 seconds. Deconstruct it yourself. See what you think. It was momentous, probably the most significant in American history, the culmination of weeks of persuasion and planning.

Everything followed from that brief moment: lockdown chaos, the closed schools and churches, the end of basic rights, the wrecking of business, and then began the spending, inflating, mad welfare checks, and the demoralization of the population that continues to this day.

The population now subjected to shock and awe, the mask and vaccine mandates seemed minor by comparison.

All of it unfolded in 70 seconds on March 16, 2020. So far as I know, this is the first and only article written so far to reconstruct this brief moment in time.

And so it is, of which you should read the all, grim as it surely is.

Being human and all, Trump made many blunders during what by any standard would have to be acknowledged as a surpassingly momentous Presidency, but this one was probably the biggest, most damaging of them all. His inattention, in concert with his inexplicably blind faith in the good intentions and integrity of the Deep State’s horde of orcs like Fauci and Birx, would go on to doom him (and us) to a single term, and set the stage for the abominable “Biden administration” farce—a wholly disastrous “reign of witches” which will assuredly afflict America for generations to come, until such time as our posterity rediscovers their love for the blessings of liberty and determines that all and every measure must be taken to restore them.

Jefferson’s 1798 letter to John Taylor from whence the “reign of witches” quote originates, written in the wake of the passage of Adams’ notorious Alien and Sedition Acts, is worth reviewing at this point. Certainly, although there are significant distinctions to be noted between the circumstances of that era and our own, the thrust of the letter remains every bit as relevant today as it was back then, as is ever the case with the words and thoughts of the great man.

It is true that we are compleatly under the saddle of Massachusets & Connecticut, and that they ride us very hard, cruelly insulting our feelings as well as exhausting our strength and substance. Their natural friends, the three other eastern States, join them from a sort of family pride, and they have the art to divide certain other parts of the Union so as to make use of them to govern the whole. This is not new. It is the old practice of despots to use a part of the people to keep the rest in order, and those who have once got an ascendency and possessed themselves of all the resources of the nation, their revenues and offices, have immense means for retaining their advantages. But our present situation is not a natural one. The body of our countrymen is substantially republican through every part of the Union. It was the irresistable influence & popularity of Gen. Washington, played off by the cunning of Hamilton, which turned the government over to anti-republican hands, or turned the republican members, chosen by the people, into anti-republicans. He delivered it over to his successor in this state, and very untoward events, since improved with great artifice, have produced on the public mind the impression we see; but still, I repeat it, this is not the natural state. Time alone would bring round an order of things more correspondent to the sentiments of our constituents; but are there not events impending which will do it within a few months? The invasion of England, the public and authentic avowal of sentiments hostile to the leading principles of our Constitution, the prospect of a war in which we shall stand alone, land-tax, stamp-tax, increase of public debt, &c. Be this as it may, in every free & deliberating society there must, from the nature of man, be opposite parties & violent dissensions & discords; and one of these, for the most part, must prevail over the other for a longer or shorter time. Perhaps this party division is necessary to induce each to watch & delate to the people the proceedings of the other. But if on a temporary superiority of the one party, the other is to resort to a scission of the Union, no federal government can ever exist. If to rid ourselves of the present rule of Massachusets & Connecticut we break the Union, will the evil stop there? Suppose the N. England States alone cut off, will our natures be changed? are we not men still to the south of that, & with all the passions of men? Immediately we shall see a Pennsylvania & a Virginia party arise in the residuary confederacy ,and the public mind will be distracted with the same party spirit. What a game, too, will the one party have in their hands by eternally threatening the other that unless they do so & so, they will join their Northern neighbors. If we reduce our Union to Virginia & N. Carolina, immediately the conflict will be established between the representatives of these two States, and they will end by breaking into their simple units. Seeing, therefore, that an association of men who will not quarrel with one another is a thing which never yet existed, from the greatest confederacy of nations down to a town meeting or a vestry, seeing that we must have somebody to quarrel with, I had rather keep our New England associates for that purpose than to see our bickerings transferred to others. They are circumscribed within such narrow limits, & their population so full, that their numbers will ever be the minority, and they are marked, like the Jews, with such a peculiarity of character as to constitute from that circumstance the natural division of our parties. A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to it’s true principles. It is true that in the mean time we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war & long oppressions of enormous public debt. But who can say what would be the evils of a scission, and when & where they would end? Better keep together as we are, hawl off from Europe as soon as we can, & from all attachments to any portions of it. And if we feel their power just sufficiently to hoop us together, it will be the happiest situation in which we can exist. If the game runs sometimes against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, & then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost, for this is a game where principles are the stake. Better luck, therefore, to us all; and health, happiness, & friendly salutations to yourself.

Adieu.

Sounds all too familiar, no? Even moreso for the coda, painfully so.

P. S. It is hardly necessary to caution you to let nothing of mine get before the public. A single sentence, got hold of by the Porcupines, will suffice to abuse & persecute me in their papers for months.

There can be no serious doubt that, if Thomas Jefferson was alive today, such “extremism” would long since have motivated the FBI to raid his home, rifle through his papers and personal effects, and roughly bunge him into durance vile for a long stretch, as retribution for his many “crimes against the State.”

Know your role, prole

They’re SO much better than you. If you don’t believe it, just ask ’em.

A good deal of political correctness or “woke” totalitarianism is about preventing dissenters from organizing. The hard Left understands the power of creating permanent political organizations with huge financial resources, symbiotic with the mega-State they champion.

You might have some (increasingly limited) ability to express contrary opinions on social media or among friends, but if you cannot organize to effect change by voting for representation and lobbying the administrative State, you have no power.

And in the case of open borders extremism, the elite Consensus supported by well-funded and powerful lobbying groups is a direct assault on the electorate, a nakedly obvious effort to engineer the electorate, making it even harder for anyone to organize against the ruling Party.

The first step was to erase good-faith disagreement with the Consensus by painting dissenters as unthinking racist brutes, and make it all but impossible for dissenters to organize. If dissenters won elections anyway, their votes were nullified by administrative fiat.

How can anyone fail to see this as authoritarianism? Because it uses idealized caricatures of migrants as political props? Is it really that easy to disable all of the safeguards that protect representative democracy and national identity, which are inextricably linked?

Well, once representative democracy itself had been well and truly subverted, yeah. After they’d accomplished that, it was all easy sledding from there.

Maybe that’s the first thing we were tricked into forgetting: no national identity and no borders means no nation, and no nation means no restraints on elite power, no sense of duty to their citizens interfering with the ambitions of politicians.

NOW you’re getting it, Doc. All just part of the plan.

The increase in elite political arrogance since the beginning of the open borders Consensus is palpable. Their lust for power and money grew exponentially, as did their disregard for large swathes of the electorate, who could be looted for funding but ignored as “deplorables.”

Don’t kid yourself for a moment that this attitude and approach only applies to the immigration issue alone; it applies to all issues, across the board, no exceptions.

Is there a single politician on the Left today, in any Western country, who would agree with the proposition that they have more responsibilities to legal citizens of their own countries than to migrants or international organizations? They would all sneer at that notion.

Years of this snowballing arrogance invariably affects the opposition, which is desperate for representation and organization. It’s Martha’s Vineyard times 100,000 every day in border states, but unlike blue-enclave elites, they’re not allowed to complain or take action.

There are more elite Consensuses coming our way – more issues where democracy must supposedly be suspended or subverted, where dissent is silenced and effective political organization is not allowed, where elections become puppet shows. Open borders was a successful test run.

Never surrender the legitimacy of dissent. Never allow the political class to rewrite the rules of debate, political organization, fund-raising, and bureaucracy to make effective opposition to their agenda illegal. Freedom is transitory without the bedrock of nationhood.

At the end of the day, we arrive at the same conclusion: those who were once rightly thought of as “public servants” have lost all fear of incurring the wrath of those they now deem to be their subjects. Until the appropriate fear is restored—yes, by any means necessary—freedom can never be anything more than a chimera, a pathetic self-deception, regardless of how many guns we keep locked securely away in the gun safe at home.

The Enemy

Before you can fight him, you must identify him.

Who is my enemy? He is the one who:

1. Taxes me into poverty
2. Inflates my dollars until they are worthless
3. Murders children in the womb
4. Vows to seize my guns
5. Allows crime to run rampant
6. Forces me to get the vaxx
7. Threatens to use the US Military against me
8. Forces pedophilia, sodomy and sexual degeneracy onto school kids
9. Uses government agencies to break into my house in the early morning and haul me to jail
10. Punishes opponents of the ruling class
11. Calls me an extremist and an enemy of the state
12. Conducts a coup d’état against a sitting American president
13. Rewards traitors but punishes and kills patriots
14. Hands out medals to those who perpetrated Ruby Ridge and Waco
15. Corrupts all elections and so makes my vote worthless
16. Opens the borders of my homeland to the most violent and depraved criminals ever conceived
17. Appoints Satanists, pedophiles and the sexually depraved to positions of authority and power

Neither Russia nor China nor Iran does any of these things to me. The US government does all of them to me.

So who is my enemy?

As Joey Shithead so memorably said, you got to know who your enemy is.

Easy fix

Sorry and all, but I’m afraid “failing harderer,” to shamelessly pilfer Robert’s most apt phrase, is NOT gonna cut it.

It is disheartening how many people are pinning their hopes on the next two elections. We still don’t know exactly how the last one was stolen—the thieves were never charged, evidence was never presented, there was no discovery, cross-examination, or verdict in a court of law—but stolen it was. Yet, many believe Lucy won’t pull the football away this time.

In 2020, no one showed up for Joe and Kamala’s appearances while Trump was pulling them in by the tens of thousands. Trump got more votes than any sitting president had ever received, but Biden supposedly beat him by 7 million votes. There were myriad inconsistencies and irregularities, many connected with procedures concocted to deal with the overhyped Covid threat. However, the election was pronounced free and fair, January 6 protestors were arrested and jailed, Trump relinquished the presidency, and that was that, a bipartisan-endorsed end of story.

Everything the Democrats have done since Biden halted the Keystone XL pipeline on inauguration day seems designed to lose votes, and the polls register fading support. Yet, the Democrats are acting as if they have this year’s elections in the bag, just as they did in 2020.

That’s because they do. And that’s because it ain’t gonna be anything resembling a legitimate election, if they have anything to say about it.

Politicians interested in winning legitimate elections don’t appropriate $80 billion three months before the election to hire 87,0000 new IRS agents, some of whom will be armed, to harass tax-paying voters. They don’t conduct a raid on the home of their hated opponent, handing him an issue which solidifies his support. They don’t engage in a Quixotic proxy war on the doorstep of a nuclear power. Their nominal leader doesn’t disparage half the population in a creepy, neo-Nazi setting and speech.

Of course not. Know who does? An emboldened, aggressively tyrannical criminal organization masquerading as a political party, that’s who. Next, Gore poses the biggest gimme-question of our era:

Is it because the vote doesn’t matter, only, per Joseph Stalin, who counts the votes?

Winnah winnah chicken dinnah! Confirmation of my jaded, cynical nature coming right up.

On that score not much has changed. The documentary 2000 Mules came and went; once in a while someone mumbles something about election integrity, and a few states have passed a few laws purportedly ensuring fairer votes (“restricting voter access” in Democratic parlance).

The “who” counting the votes will be, for the most part, the same officials who counted them the last time. Many states will continue to use programmable and internet-connected voting machines. Ranked choice voting is the newest scheme. The Biden administration has opened the southern border for millions of sure-thing Democratic voters. No one will be surprised if a manufactured emergency requires mail-in voting and the rest of the 2020 rigamarole. And no one should be surprised if the Democrats “miraculously” hold on to the House and Senate. Republicans, of course, will shout, “Just wait until 2024!”

That, of course, is because the overwhelming majority of them are willing, active participants in the Grand Scam. and the rest are dewy-eyed dupes. But the really crucial aspect here is the bit I boldfaced.

As I have repeatedly insisted, if We The People truly do want free and fair elections, there is actually an extremely simple, easy-peasey way to get there: do away with every single last voting machine and go back to paper ballots, counted by hand under the eagle-eyed scrutiny of men and women of unimpeachable honesty—election supervisors who care far more about restoring some semblance of integrity and trust to American elections than they do about jockeying for some kind of partisan advantage. Until such frabjous day arrives, alas, we’re stuck with this.

The professed faith in elections dismays. The notion that changing from blue to red will change anything substantive dismays still more. The delusion that government can solve problems created by government, the lack of understanding that it is the mortal enemy of the honest and the productive, dismays the most.

Neither party cares about fair elections because together they constitute the Corruptocracy. The U.S. government is the largest criminal enterprise in history and there’s enough booty to go around. Regardless of who is nominally in power, warfare and welfare-state rackets rake it in. Nothing says “Republican” quite like their failure to repeal Obamacare when they controlled the House, Senate, and presidency, although they voted seven times to do so when Obama was president (and they knew he’d veto the legislation). It’s all for show.

After a denunciation of Trump as an ineffectual egomaniac, some of which I actually agree with, Gore says this:

Violence has no place in the discovery and employment of nature’s laws. Pounding the earth with a club won’t free you from gravity. Discovering the principles governing flight might. Ritual human sacrifice to the rain gods won’t produce water for crops. Devising systems of irrigation and water storage might. Nature is a trove of secrets, but they’re only revealed through inquiry and experimentation, not violence.

Violence has no place in human interaction, except in self-defense. It is fundamentally immoral for one person to initiate violence against another.

Think so? What, then, are we to make of this?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness…when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Precisely so. In a more perfect world, perhaps, things might be different, but in this one, the only way to “throw off such Government” is by resorting to violence. It blows my mind that so many of us revere the Founders and honor their sacrifice and incredible effort in gaining their independence from the Mother Country, yet mulishly denounce the very idea that we, their Posterity, might even dream of availing ourselves of the selfsame methods by which this once-noble nation was created

Robert Gore is a highly distinguished writer and thinker, one of Our Side’s best and brightest, so of course he’s acutely aware of this blaring contradiction in our contemporary consciousness. That being so, he goes on to wrap the rest of his analysis around the words of the Declaration his own self, dubbing our modern self-styled masters the Deficient, which is probably more charitable than they deserve. He closes the essay out thusly:

The order that will emerge from the coming chaos is that of organized resistance, guerrilla war, and rebellion, not the Deficients’ reset. There is little chance that present governments and political subdivisions will be sustained. When the rebels are at the gate and the Deficient realize that they and the few praetorians who haven’t deserted them are outmatched, they’ll do what the Deficient have always done under such circumstances—scatter like cockroaches in a dirty kitchen when the lights go on. Another Deficient deficiency is courage.

This may seem unlikely, but it’s far more likely than the fantasy in which elections and wise politicians lead governments to dramatically reduce their size, shed their powers, and restore a semblance of freedom. When has that ever happened?

But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American War? The Revolution was effected before the War commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people.”

John Adams, 1818

The revolution has been effected. The Deficient, clinging to their copies of The Great Reset, their woke praetorians, and their F-15s, feel it as creeping, nameless fear. The rebels already know in their minds and hearts—it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. They’ll miss an historic opportunity if they replace old despotism with new. It’s time to give freedom—the system most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness—its chance.

I repeat: ain’t but one way that happens. As the bumper sticker tells us:

Shoot!
It’s true, and you know it

Pipe dream

Too many of my Rightwing Nazi Deathbeast confreres forget to include a most important point in their deliberations.

Is society becoming Balkanized? Hell, yes!

That’s the half-right part.

Now, stop playing checkers, and think for five seconds about what happens after that.

How did Balkanization work out in 1776?

How about in 1845 in Texas?

Or 1849 in California?

How about 1861 in the South?

How did it work out for the Balkans themselves in 1939?

South Korea in 1950?

South Vietnam in 1960?

Ukraine since 2000?

Even the stupidest slow learner ought to be able to buy a clue here.

To work (assuming it ever can, which I think is a fool’s errand, but we’ll grant it arguendo for the moment), all parties have to be willing to accept the status quo.

Yep. And, parasitical Lefty shitwits aside for the moment, there’s another party to this discussion sitting at the table, the one my compatriots leave out, the one that has more weight to throw around than the others combined: FederalGovCo.

Yeah, yeah, peaceful partition, secession, whatever you prefer to call it, might indeed be a fine thing, at least in theory. But there are a few things we should all bear closely in mind, whether we’re for it or ag’in it:

  • Eglin Air Force Base
  • Hurlburt Air Force Base
  • MacDill Air Force Base
  • NAS Pensacola
  • NS Mayport
  • Naval Air Warfare Center Training System Division
  • Lackland Air Force Base
  • Fort Bliss Army Base
  • Fort Hood Army Base
  • Camp Mabry Army Base

Those are but a small selection of federal military installations in Florida and Texas alone, the ones I could remember off the top of my head. There are many more of them, not a single one of which’s personnel, land area, buildings, machinery and vehicles, and sundry other matériel the federal goobermint is ever going to give up equably, willingly, and non-violently. No matter how passionately one advocates for some form of national divorce, no matter how logical or reasonable the arguments assembled in its favor, it just ain’t happening. It’s preposterous on the very face of it.

Which is not necessarily to say that the secession fantasy can never become reality. There’s one, and only one, way it might, and even then you’ll still have the rage-fueled, hate-driven, batshit-crazy Left to deal with.

You’re still going to have to shoot sumbitches in the face, long past the point you’re sick of it, and they still won’t leave you alone, not ever, until there aren’t any of them left. Look at what happened in Rhodesia. Look at what’s going on in South Africa. Look at Israel. You can’t build the fences high enough to make people who want to kill you stop trying. And there’s no where left to run. You’ll have to hunt them down and exterminate them to bring that happy moment to fruition. Waiting for the knock at the door is planning to fail.

Ayup, that’s about the size of it. Barring some heretofore unlooked-for, near-total FederalGovCo collapse—unimaginable until just recently, but looking more plausible of late—severe enough to force it to retract its claws, relax its stranglehold, and reconsider its consuming lust for total control and limitless power, the only way prospective breakaway states can hope to achieve true independence is through a major conflagration. As things now stand, FederalGovCo will NOT blithely step aside and “allow them to depart in peace.”

Amerikan ordeal

Apologies to the author, JB Shurk, for my wanton stomping flat of the very concept of Fair Use. He’s written another of those excellent, Wilder-esque pieces that I just can’t see any way around it.

Several members of the community recently focused my attention on the plight of J6 political prisoner Jonathan Mellis, who has already spent nineteen months in the American Gulag for the “crime” of protesting against his government.

Mellis is one of hundreds who have endured the wrath of a wayward Washington politburo that has thrown Americans’ Bill of Rights and founding principles right out the window. Dennis Prager actually managed to secure a fifteen-minute interview with the incarcerated Mellis on December 22, 2021, and has replayed the disturbing audio for his listeners several times. I encourage anyone who has not already come across it to find a few minutes to concentrate on their conversation. The thirty-five-year-old Mellis, whom Prager identifies as a native Tennessean, although he was arrested in Virginia, sounds remarkably calm and composed, considering that he had already endured nearly a full year in jail (with no end yet in sight) and was obviously communicating with Prager from behind enemy lines.

His story is similar to those of other J6 political prisoners caught up in this abusive, Soviet-style purge, yet his descriptions are unnervingly poignant. Like so many of us who angrily watched as mass mail-in balloting and other pandemic-related voting shenanigans corrupted the 2020 election, Mellis hoped January 6 would stand as a historic day when civic-minded Americans engaging in political protest would successfully convince Congress and the courts to take a hard look at the suspicious irregularities tainting the election. He is undoubtedly a fiercely patriotic American who loves his country and would sacrifice anything for it. He speaks as a man committed to America’s foundations in liberty. He does not sound as if malice has blighted his heart. He arrived in D.C. to defend America’s standing as the “Land of the Free.” He expected to rectify an electoral injustice. He wanted D.C.’s permanent bureaucracy to visually see the resolve of millions of Americans’ moral conviction. He expected triumph. And he has received little but despair.

Instead of delivering historic jubilation, January 6 has marked a hard turning point in his life and the beginning of an unrelenting nightmare. He’s been in and out of solitary confinement, endured an onslaught of racist invective and other verbal abuse, witnessed beatings from guards, spit out contaminated food, been denied hygienic care, and suffered through an unsanitary hellscape of backed up toilets and filthy, fetid cells meant to break his will and coerce him into accepting some kind of plea deal. He describes the agony of surviving alone for days at a time, cut off from reality and forced to seek solace in the refuge of his mind. The last time he saw his father was when he was being dragged away with the kind of force one might expect to be used against a wanted terrorist. When his father, a decorated Vietnam War veteran, died a few months later, Judge Emmet Sullivan (yes, the same Sullivan who hounded General Michael Flynn and insisted on persecuting him long after the government sought to drop its politically-motivated criminal charges) summarily denied his request to attend the funeral, again equating him to a violent terrorist who must be made to suffer. In Mellis’s words, you hear the story of a man who has been psychologically tortured and kept in a constant state of apprehension at what will befall him next. You hear a man whom the federal government wishes to drown in fear.

Yet you also hear a man who refuses to break. “We sing the National Anthem every single night, at nine P.M., with our hands on our hearts,” he tells Prager. Imagine that for one small moment. The U.S. government — with its armies of prosecutors, FBI Gestapo squads, complicit judges, and corrupt news media propagandists who ask no questions while pushing the all-powerful State’s lies — has targeted Jonathan Mellis and nearly a thousand other Americans for being “insurrectionists” and “domestic terrorists” intent on “overthrowing” the United States. Yet it is Mellis and a few dozen other political prisoners who seek to lift each other’s spirits by singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” each night. You know — the poetic anthem that stirred in the mind and soul of Francis Scott Key as he watched a large American flag flying triumphantly over Fort McHenry while it sustained bombardment from Britain’s Royal Navy during the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812.

So committed to “insurrection” and “overthrowing” the government of the United States are the federal government’s “dangerous” political prisoners that they gather their strength when they’re able and sing tribute to the very nation that inflicts upon them such grievous harm. These are the American patriots the D.C. Despots have decided to torment, torture, and betray. These are the lost Americans who have been mostly forgotten for now but who will one day serve as living testament to Washington’s venality and as a breathing reminder of the horrendously ignoble American Gulag. These are the Americans the federal government wishes to break before all our eyes, so that no citizen anywhere will ever again consider electing an unapproved outsider candidate for president, calling out government corruption, or demanding justice from those who pretend to dispense it. How many denizens of D.C. could even accurately recite America’s National Anthem? I wonder. It’s as Prager said to Mellis upon hearing about the patriotic revelry: “That, my friend, is considered an extremist.”  Damn right.

Because Mellis refuses to break, he will remain a target in the crosshairs of an immoral government dedicated to persecution, not principle. He is of particular focus because he was involved directly in the mêlée that resulted in Rosanne Boyland’s death. She “died right in front of me,” Mellis said on a recorded phone call from jail.  “I still hear the blood curdling screams for help at night.” Boyland’s death was originally blamed on a drug overdose, but video footage shows her being repeatedly beaten by a D.C. police officer. Mellis is seen pushing back against police, while trying to defend Boyland from further injury. As further evidence of good character, Mellis is recorded earlier in the day assisting an officer who had fallen into the crowd. Normally, we would recognize that kind of pattern-or-practice evidence as demonstrating moral courage. The federal criminal justice system sees it as proof why Mellis should be held in jail without bail, trial, or prospect of release.

None of this is right. We have gone so far beyond what is good and right or fair that the damage the Washington Establishment class continues to inflict will fester like an unhealed wound upon the nation’s body politic, striking even the most complacent among us with its putrid stench. The Occupant of the White House, Joe Biden, insists that when Americans have the temerity to question election results or the sacred honor of their government bureaucrats, they threaten the U.S. Constitution itself. As with most utterances from Biden, his words are un-American and preposterous. We seek a renewal of the Constitution and a rejection of the Washington Deep State’s casual disregard for its meaning and the intentional malice its bureaucratic servants dedicate to its degradation. Just as with Mellis and other J6 political prisoners, we stand with America.

As the horrific plight of Mellis and his fellow dissidents in the New Amerikan Gulag incontrovertibly confirms, America is but a fond memory. The title of the post is apt, blunt, and in a way, unfortunate: Enough Already: Release the J6 Political Prisoners. Until those Shurk calls “the most complacent among us” rouse themselves to effective action, the J6 Patriots will remain in durance vile—because the title’s explicit demand falls on the deaf ears of tyrants, who have no intention whatsoever of releasing anybody. If anything, the cells of the New Gulag will be filling up with many more of us as time rolls on, while we continue to do nothing in support of our unjustly-persecuted countrymen.

As of  9/6, there have been over 900 Americans arrested and charged for the “crime” of exercising their Constitutionally-guaranteed right to protest—to petition for redress of grievances. Around 65 or so of them are in prison, almost all of them convicted on bullshit charges of “parading,” not insurrection or treason. Of those, many have been denied any semblance of due process, and are incarcerated in squalid, inhumane conditions like poor Jon Mellis, as described above. If the soulless Swamp monsters and their willing dupes who prattle endlessly and insufferably on in turgid condemnation of the “destruction” and “damage” of the J6 “riots”; the “defiling” of “the citadel of our sacred democracy”; the “violence” of the J6 “insurrectionists”; and the “treason” committed by those dastardly “revolutionaries” really want to avert an encore, perhaps they could consider not doing things that make insurrection seem needful to MAGA Americans.

Chicago welcomes Texas migrants, then sends them to Burr Ridge
BURR RIDGE, Ill. — WGN Investigates has learned several dozen of the migrants Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent to Chicago have now been relocated to a hotel in the suburbs without advance warning to the local mayor.

“I am concerned neither the village administrator nor I were told about this,” Burr Ridge Mayor Gary Grasso told WGN. “We want to know: Why Burr Ridge?”

The answer to that seems obvious enough to me, but no way in hell WGN’s article is gonna touch it. So Ace helps out the more obtuse of us with a handy-dandy explainer.

Here, let me take a wild stab in the dark at that:

The 5 largest ethnic groups in Burr Ridge, IL are White (Non-Hispanic) (75.5%), Asian (Non-Hispanic) (14.7%), White (Hispanic) (3.43%), Two+ (Non-Hispanic) (2.78%), and Other (Hispanic) (1.16%).

Is Burr Ridge IL wealthy?Burr Ridge (formerly Harvester) is a village in Cook and DuPage counties in the U.S. state of Illinois. A suburb of Chicago, it is among the wealthiest towns in Illinois and is locally known for its large, elegant mansions and luxury lifestyles. Per the 2020 census, the population was 11,192.
— Wikipedia

This is all of you right now: “Oh my God Ace your brain is just so throbbing and pulsey with Hot Facts…”

Heh. Yep, I for one stand in slackjawed awe of ye, buddy. Back to the WGN report.

Just days ago, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted Abbott for treating the migrants like “cargo” and not providing her with advance notice they were arriving.

“My frustration comes from the actions of the governor of Texas,” Lightfoot said Sunday, when the first bus load of 50 migrants arrived. “There could be a level of coordination and cooperation, but he chooses to do none of those things and instead tries to send human beings — not cargo, not freight — human beings across the country to an uncertain destination.”

What, you mean like Obama and Biden did/are doing, quietly sneaking busloads of illegals in the dead of night to small communities all across the nation, with neither advance notice nor disclosure? For that matter, what the hell is so damned “uncertain” about self-proclaimed “sanctuary” destinations such as your own Murder Central, Mordor On The Potomac, and NYFC, anyway?

On Wednesday, a group of 75 more migrants arrived in Chicago from Texas.

Awww, my heart truly bleeds for poor put-upon Chicago. I suspect those small-town Texans that have borne the brunt of the onslaught of literally millions of inbound illegals for years now might have a thing or two to say to Mxzzs Lightfoot about the way she squeals like a stuck pig over what amounts to the merest drop in the very large bucket of misery intentionally inflicted on their communities by posturing DemonRat politicians.

The worse, the better

I’ll admit up front that I’m not as well-versed in the strategic wiles of Vladimir Ilych Lenin as I probably ought to be. Thanks to WRSA for the steer to this intriguing JR Nyquist think-piece that provides a pretty good start on rectifying that.

When a strategist can manipulate both sides in a conflict, where each side represents one blade of a scissors, he can use the slicing of the blades to cut his way through anything. The conflict then becomes a controlled experiment in which the contenders, as thesis and antithesis, are used to establish a new thing (i.e., synthesis). In the present case, Russia and China (using their Western agent networks and “useful idiots”) are playing out this strategy. They are attempting to destabilize Europe and America to remake the world. An essential ingredient in this strategy is defeatism.

LENINIST DEFEATISM
Four overlapping “scissors strategies” are playing out, along existing fractures: (1) the Biden regime vs. MAGA; (2) Russia vs. Ukraine; (3) China vs. Taiwan; (4) Western elites vs. the exploited masses (of the collapsing Western economies). Behind these scissors strategies there is a convergence strategy, and all these strategies make use of anti-NATO and anti-capitalist defeatism.

To understand defeatism, it is useful to reflect on Lenin’s defeatism during the First World War. Russia was then fighting against Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkey. As a defeatist, Lenin wanted Russia to lose the war. In that event, he envisioned coming to power in a revolution. As events played out, the war brought Russia to the brink of economic collapse in early 1917. After the abdication of the Tsar in the February Revolution, Lenin’s defeatism led him to collaborate with the German government. The Kaiser, who was desperate to get himself out of a two-front war, provided Lenin with money (sent into Russia through the Bank of Siberia) so that Lenin could overthrow the Provisional Government and give Germany peace on favorable terms. After Lenin overthrew the Provisional Government in the October Revolution, he agreed to the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. That treaty broke up the Russian Empire and ended Russia’s participation in World War I. This is how communism was established in Russia, with Defeatism as the key.

An important marker in all this was Lenin’s opposition to “the omnipotence of ‘wealth.’” Lenin was an enemy of the Establishment. He said that capitalism exploited the workers, pauperized them, and even slaughtered them in “imperialist wars.” We notice, today, similar rhetoric coming from mixed groups of right-wing defeatists. We may aptly call this defeatism “right-wing Leninism” because its modus operandi bears a striking resemblance to Lenin’s defeatism. But that is not all. The American right is more and more identified with the working class, and Lenin was a champion of the working class; so the case is more and more curious, involving what the Marxists call “contradictions.” In this context, former Trump advisor Steve Bannon reportedly told Ron Radosh: “I’m a Leninist.” Radosh asked what he meant, and Bannon said, “Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal, too. I want to bring everything crashing down and destroy all of today’s Establishment.”

Bringing down the United States Government, of course, would present a golden opportunity to Russia and China. The U.S. nuclear arsenal defends the free world (to whatever extent it is still free). If the United States collapsed in the wake a right-wing revolution to “destroy all of today’s Establishment,” and if the U.S. nuclear arsenal was compromised, who is to say the free world would survive?

In light of that “to whatever extent it is still free” quip above, which is entirely apt and reasonable, can we seriously contend that it DID survive? Onwards.

Setting aside, for a moment, the opportunity that “bringing down the [American] state” represents for Russia and China, it must be admitted that our erstwhile Establishment despises the country’s white working-class. Here we find the blades of one of our scissors – i.e., the Western elites vs. the exploited masses. It is a bizarre irony that the Marxist left, having emerged from its university hatcheries into government, has deployed Critical Race Theory and feminism to suppress what turns out to be the last instinctively American class; that is, the American proletariat. In a comical inversion of political reality, the right picks up the working class as the left picks up the elite. And so, the elitist thing is to be a Marxist of a new type – promoting feminism, open borders, and genderism. The lowbrow thing is to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. It is, in fact, the unwashed masses – Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables” – who want to bring manufacturing back to the United States, who want a border wall, and who instinctively distrust the Establishment. Therefore, Bannon is a “Leninist” in the sense that he wants a revolution from below.

One must admit, since 1991, all our political terms have become inverted and confused. Yet there is method in the madness of this confusion. The idea that Bannon might call himself a Leninist goes hand-in-hand with Putin identifying himself as a Christian. As Iago said in Shakespeare’s Othello, “I am not what I am.” Bannon is not really a Leninist and Putin is not really a Christian. But a game is afoot in which, dialectically, the players become interchangeable so that the black and white pieces on the chess board can switch sides, change sides, or converge. As a strategist, I do not think all this is an accident.  

The defeatism that is emerging on the right, having made revolutionary noises, shares Lenin’s hatred of bankers and high finance. And here, we are not talking about Bannon specifically. We are talking about the conspiratorial right. Precision is difficult here; but of all the conspiracy theories infecting the right, most believe that the malefactors of great wealth are the true enemies of mankind. Overthrow the banking cabal and all will be well. And so, the real right-wing Leninists – who make up an ill-defined grouping – have revolutionary aspirations at a deeper level than anybody has yet understood. Whereas conservatism hitherto deferred to Edmund Burke in his opposition to violent revolution, the right-wing Leninists have no such inhibition. Like the dialectical materialists of the communist movement, the right-wing revolutionaries have no transcendental calculus. They are not backworldsmen (in Nietzsche’s sneering coinage); and so, like the communists, they are after power – and they do not care how they come by it.

At this late and most dismal stage of the game, I have reached the point where I have no real problem with any of that; neither the “revolutionary aspirations,” part, nor the “they are after power – and they do not care how they come by it” part. I can’t honestly say the same for the ‘graphs that close out this section of the essay.

Lenin wrote, “A democratic republic is the best possible political shell of capitalism, and therefore, once capital has got control of this excellent shell…it establishes its power so securely, so firmly, that no change of individuals, of institutions or of parties in the bourgeois-democratic republic can shake this power.”[iv] Similar statements may be found on any number of right-wing websites, and could form the basis for Moscow’s late-game strategy of convergence. The far right and the far left could join forces. After all, they seem to share the same enemy.

It is mind-boggling, indeed, to think that the right and left could combine, that they could agree on a revolution to overthrow capitalism. Of course, overthrowing Wall Street and the banks might destroy the West economically. In practical terms, what could be better for Moscow and Beijing? After the West collapses, the right and left – having defeated the evil “banksters” – could be comfortably merged. If anything should go wrong (and it probably will), the hard reset of a nuclear world war could be used to force the desperate survivors into a socialist survivalism. Should reactionaries and anti-socialists attempt to resist, something akin to the Russian Civil War would play out globally, by bullet and bayonet, enabling the have-nots to overthrow the haves.

Either way, the World Revolution wins.

Um, not quite, no. The mistake Nyquist makes here is that, by declaring that Right and Left are in agreement on the necessity of “overthrowing capitalism,” he conflates the crony-fascism we currently groan under with capitalism, when the sad fact is that it’s been many a long year since there was much of genuine capitalism to be found in the Western world. He compounds that error in the following section.

We may visualize World Revolution as follows: (1) Begin a war in Ukraine that results in a global economic dislocation, either through a Russian victory or stalemate (since Western economic sanctions will apply either way, triggering the collapse of the West’s financial house of cards); (2) extend the economic mayhem by disrupting the West’s vital supply chains as China squeezes Taiwan and mobilizes for war in the Far East; (3) have a Democrat President denounce his Republican opposition as traitors (opening the way to civil war in the U.S., marking the end of U.S. global hegemony); (4) expose the bankrupt and predatory policies of the Western capitalist elite, turning the Western masses against their economic system and governments; (5) break up NATO; (6) bring about the “one Common European Home” advocated by Gorbachev and Yeltsin; (7) make the Pacific Ocean into a Chinese lake; (8) finish off the United States, occupy North America, and rule the world as a socialist commonwealth led by Moscow and Beijing.

No, no, and OH HELL no. What those of us on what he calls the Revolutionary Right—which, again: hey, fine with me, no quarrel with that, really—propose is not to destroy capitalism, liberty, and Constitutional governance, but to reinstate them. Y’know, as opposed the squalid, contra-Constitutional mess we’re currently cursed by. We wish not to join with our enemies, but to vanquish them.

If the Leftist enemy’s repeated, unanswered violence against Heritage Americans must be met with violence in order to liberate ourselves from the raw despotism of a mutant, semi-fascist US federal government, well, so be it then. If said liberation demands that Heritage Americans forsake some portion of their tolerance, their innate willingness to live and let live, their deep attachment to certain fundamental principles of the Founding Fathers in order to prevail over tyranny, then that is what must be done.

The rest of Nyquist’s piece is pretty good, particularly his examination of the Climate Change (formerly Global Warming, formerly Global Cooling, formerly The Weather) con’s roots as a tragically successful USSR ploy to undermine their adversaries in the Once-Free World. His takedown of NASA in-house dunderhead James Hansen is a joy to behold:

For obvious reasons the Soviet strategists became interested in an obscure scientific hypothesis: anthropogenic global warming. Here was a “scientific” theory with strategic utility for the socialist bloc. And then, on 23 June 1988, during a Washington, D.C. heat wave, James Hansen of the NASA Goddard Institute of Space Studies told a committee of the U.S. Senate that, “The earth is warmer in 1988 than at any time in the history of instrumental measurements….” He said there was “only a 1 percent chance of an accidental warming of this magnitude…. The greenhouse effect has been detected, and it is changing our climate now.”

Hansen’s statement, on its face, was ridiculous. There is no such thing as “accidental global warming.” Such, however, was the straw man Hansen presented as the sole alternative to the greenhouse gas theory. Scientists have long known that the Earth passes through cycles of warmer and cooler temperatures. In fact, it was warmer in the early Middle Ages than it is now. The Vikings were growing crops in Greenland, which is not possible with today’s cooler climate. Yet anthropogenic global warming has been accepted as true. To this end, facts have been systematically falsified by agents of influence in the scientific community. Careers have been ruined.

To make environmental alarmism credible, nobody was supposed to question the anthropogenic global warming theory. Those who did question the theory were labeled “science deniers,” or they were accused of being paid agents of Big Oil. Yet science is about asking questions. When all this nonsense began, scientists did not even fully understand the mechanisms responsible for global temperatures. Given their ignorance about climate, how could scientists honestly say anthropogenic global warming was scientifically proven? Of course, everyone knows – or ought to know – the sun is a major factor in heating the Earth; but in 1988 nobody realized the role played by cosmic radiation and the sun’s electromagnetic field. In this regard, the work of Henrik Svensmark has proved embarrassing to global warming advocates. Ironically, Svensmark’s work suggests that the world may not be warming. Instead, we may be headed for serious cooling – with dire consequences to global food production.

Despite the future discoveries of real scientists, James Hansen’s 1988 statements before the U.S. Senate lent credibility to what followed. The New York Times’s declared that Hansen had sounded an alarm “with such authority and force that the issue of an overheating world has suddenly moved to the forefront of public concern.”

Because hey, OF COURSE they did. But then, what would anyone expect from the Old Grey Whore—the selfsame Jurassic Media fishwrap that to this day has yet to offer a sincere apology for the lies promulgated in their pages by Pulitzer Prize-holding propagandist Walter Duranty?

Everything old is new again

Mark Twain is claimed to have said “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.” Perhaps he did, perhaps he didn’t, but after reading Divemedic’s ingenious post, I’m saying to hell with all that; it definitely repeats itself, as far as I’m concerned.

In a nation weakened by worldwide economic issues and a world that has grown weary of war and strife, a chief executive struggles

The head law enforcement officer of the nation, acting on orders of the chief executive, orders a raid on the opposition party’s headquarters. There, the police find evidence of seditious material, including a plot to attack public buildings. The chief executive takes to the airwaves with claims that the opposition is planning to attack the capitol.

Shortly thereafter, the capitol is attacked, and one of the men arrested in an unemployed construction worker who admits to being under the command of the leader of the opposition party. The chief executive declares, “we must crush out this murderous pest with an iron fist.”

A few hours later, the chief executive issued an executive order that effectively abolished freedom of speech, assembly, privacy and the press; legalized phone tapping and interception of correspondence; and that 4,000 people be arrested, imprisoned and tortured.

Later that year, a sensational criminal trial got under way. The man who burned the Capitol, the leader of the opposition party, and several key figures of the opposition party went on trial for sedition.

As the trial proceeded, a different kind of trial captured the public discourse. A member of the opposition undertook an independent investigation of the destruction of the Capitol. The combined research resulted in the publication of The Brown Book on the Insurrection. It included early accounts police brutality, as well as an argument that the insurrectionists were simply pawns. The chief executive’s party members were the real criminals, the book argued, and they orchestrated the insurrection to consolidate political power. The book became a bestseller, translated into 24 languages and sold around Europe and the U.S.

At any rate, a full 5% of the legislature was declared to be in league with the accused insurrection. They were imprisoned and held for a trial that would never come. Their seats were left vacant, and the leader’s party was free to hold legislative referendums without them present.

Fearing that the insurrectionists were gaining enough power to become a threat to the very nation, the legislature passed an enabling act that temporarily granted emergency legislative powers to the chief executive so that he and the head of the nation’s law enforcement could deal with the spreading insurrection. Soon thereafter, the chief executive passed away after a sudden and brief illness. The chief law enforcement executive then declared himself to be the new chief executive, then used his emergency powers to pass a law declaring himself to be the permanent head of government and disbanded the legislature. He ordered jailed anyone who opposed his new powers.

Read on for the O Henry-esque twist at the end.

Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra

Toby Rogers, his eyes open.

Why are they doing this to us? Ten theories of the case

In the movement, we’ve been circling around two big questions for the past two years:

Who is “they”; and
Why are they doing this* to us?

*this being: developing and releasing bioweapons into the population; suppressing safe and effective treatments; destroying the global economy via lockdowns; pushing dangerous shots with negative efficacy that maim, kill, and cause infertility at an astonishing rate; and implementing global totalitarianism including the suspension of Constitutional rights and the introduction of central bank digital currencies, 24/7/365 digital surveillance, and vaccine/carbon/ESG passports.

For now I want to set aside the question of “Who is ‘they’?” Generally speaking I think we are dealing with structures not individual actors. If Bill Gates died of a heart attack tomorrow I doubt it would make much difference in the trajectory of this crisis — he would quickly be replaced by another character who is just as bad or worse.

Today I want to focus on the question of WHY? Below I sketch out eight theories of the case — most of which you’ll already recognize and then a new theory that came to me this week.

I. Political Economy

Let’s start with the political economy theory of the case. “Follow the money” is always a good strategy. RFK, Jr. has shown that vaccines are a $50 billion a year industry that generates another $500 billion a year in revenue from treatments for vaccine injury. That’s Pharma’s business model — they cause autism, ADHD, autoimmune disorders, childhood cancer, diabetes, dementia, epilepsy, Tourette’s, etc. — and then they sell expensive patented treatments to the injured who depend on these pharmaceutical products to survive.

Toxic Covid shots add another $50 billion annually in vaccine revenue and probably another $500 billion in revenue from treatments for myocarditis, infertility, cancer etc. So Pharma doubled their revenue in just two years — not too shabby!

II. The base determines the superstructure

I’ve written a bit about this in the past but I keep returning to this theme because it explains a lot. To summarize briefly: “the base determines the superstructure” which means that the values and corresponding institutions of every era are shaped by the mode of production (types of industries, ways that wealth is generated) of that era. Our current economy is built around Eds., Meds., Media, & Tech. The people who work in these industries come to identify with and see the world through the interests of their employer. Pharma poisons 95% of the population through the childhood vaccine schedule, schools require it to create demand, and media + “higher education” cover up the harms. Big tech lends a hand through surveillance, censorship, and amplification of the preferred industry narrative. These industries hire, promote, and reward people just like them — people lacking in empathy who just want to fit in — and the system thus reproduces and magnifies itself.

Read of it, for It Is Good. Chilling, terrifying even, but good, to include this most interesting proposition:

VI. Eugenics

Holocaust survivor Vera Sharav makes a strong case that the problem is eugenics once again rearing its ugly head. She argues that eugenics never went away after World War II and she points out that 1,600 of the top Nazi scientists and doctors were brought over to the United States where they left their imprint on key institutions and helped train the next generation of scientists and doctors. Now we are reaping the fruits of this poisonous tree.

I must admit, I hadn’t considered this idea myself, but it all dovetails in a quite appalling way with my previous post. Via WRSA, who appends links to two other more-or-less companion pieces which I haven’t gotten to yet before concluding:

Read each, then pass them on.

Grok the necessary inferences from the information and the embedded links.

Know what “iatrogenic”* means, and what that implies about everything you have seen over the past 30 months.

Know that every man and woman chooses – each day, every moment – whether they will serve Good or whether they will serve Evil.

Know what your duties are as a moral actor.

Know that you and yours are fighting the greatest mass murder conspiracy this planet has ever seen.

Keep resisting.

No matter what.

Yes indeed. At the end of the day, however insurmountable the odds may seem in our weaker, less hopeful moments, what other choice is there, really?

The meaning of MAGA

Dave Renegade runs it down for us.

Two points:

  1. We have to agree that America is no longer great and determine how we lost our “greatness”.
  2. We have to agree that the premise of any citizen who wants their country to be great does not threaten the Republic.

I know who destroyed the Republic: Politicians and the intelligence community (mainly the CIA and their FBI lackeys). While the Democrat Party bears more responsibility for the overthrow of the Republic by the Deep State, the Republican party was complicit, incompetent and silent in the face of evil. I do not want to overlook our apathy as this “transition” to tyranny went unchallenged. However, the final consequence is that America is no longer great.

As to the second point, our country has to reach rock bottom in order to fight evil and rebuild a better country and future for our children. When will we know when this point is reached? The answer is simple: when our leaders are so desperate that they think we will believe that wanting to make our country great again is an extremist view and threatens the very Republic.

Some years back, I asked what seemed to me a simple, straightforward question: who could possibly be AGAINST “making American great again”? I realize now that I missed the point, and badly. For MAGA Americans, it all comes down to rededicating ourselves and our ersatz nation to the principles of liberty and limited government as prescribed in the Constitution. Yes, as Dave says, we are all too aware that America has had its greatness stripped away by the Left’s all-too-successful Long March. The thing is, though, that we do believe that America WAS great once, and can still be made so again.

Ahh, but that’s precisely where we part ways with the TWANLOCs: in their eyes, America was never “great” to begin with, and can never hope to become so unless Americans embrace the foul Leftist catechism of total despotism and subjugation without reservation. This flawlessly defines the breach between Us and Them—a chasm now grown so vast that there is no longer any realistic possibility of accommodation, reconciliation, or so much as peaceful coexistence between the opposing sides.

I’ll say it again: WE would be a-okay with peacefully coexisting with THEM, if they’d just agree to leave us alone to live as we deem fit. Doesn’t sound like too much to ask, now does it? But alas, that happens to be the very thing they can never, ever do, since their preferred flavor of tyranny used to be called Global Socialism—emphasis on the Global, mind. Any dewey-eyed university co-ed would cheerfully tell you that it just won’t work any other way, see. TL ain’t skeered of ’em.

I was not threatened by Joe Biden’s speech, he didn’t say anything new. Those who are patriots to the ideals and the principles of the republic have felt such threats and heavy-breathing hysterics often before. The squeals and mindless rants of Hillary supporters have kept that dialog alive for nearly a decade. The endless investigations of Trump, the spying on the campaign by Barack Obama, even when such treasonous actions were known by the highest offices of the Department of Justice and covered up or left undiscovered by an incurious media explained where this nation was headed. The left was always intent on choosing their dictator to rule over the rest of us. It’s how they’re wired. But no amount of hyperbolic recitations of a script, as insane as it sounded, as dismissive and even dangerous as it wanted to be to a great majority of Americans, would be greater than the injustices already inflicted by the previous several administrations.

That boat sailed long ago, its wake has rocked the even waters of justice for decades. There is no justice for anyone claiming the rights and principles of the republic. The republic is a threat to democracy, where democracy is a euphemism for fascism. The republic and the rights enjoyed by Americans stands in their way, it represents, as Barack Obama told us himself, a charter of negative rights. In other words it tells the state what it cannot do. Yes!

But the state stopped listening. It’s already too invested in the absolute degradation of the human rights encapsulated in the Bill of Rights to ever recognize such power over the state. In that way, patriots are treasonous to communist/fascism. Joe got that part right. They are the enemy.

Do you not recognize that if they can so bastardize the word “woman” to the point where no one seems to be able to recite the actual literal definition as a female uniquely capable of bearing children, that they can make communist/fascism into “democracy?” They see only their goal, not the hypocrisy, or the ridiculous twists of logic it takes to make that goal seem reasonable and justified. They don’t believe in reality, except that which they choose as reality and as such are incapable of proffering any logical conclusion to their rants.

A normal, healthy public would not be able to stomach it all. Forget political parties, simple human intelligence and empathy would preclude agreement with the vision Joe Biden and the globalist/fascist left have for the nation. But, as a nation, we are not healthy. Many have been poisoned by the constant drumbeat of leftist dogma in our schools, hospitals, social clubs, corporations and even sports, the point of which is to destroy the republic, which has fostered great acts of charity, kindness and strength to the weak and oppressed the world over. These are not the gifts of the government, but of the people themselves, those who have been spiritually enriched by a system now deemed cruel and insensitive. The good is never mentioned, only the faults and failures. No one and no system can survive such a harsh and unfair barrage of criticisms from people who do not seek good or proper, but rather the destruction and defamation of good and proper to install a system of filthy lust for power; the power to tell everyone what to speak, how to speak, what to mention and not mention about the realities of the world; power to point at anything and declare it guilty; power to not merely defeat opponents, but to utterly destroy them for the sick enjoyment of their brethren.

It’s a perverse nation that Joe Biden speaks for when he vilifies more than half of the population with a seeming slur that merely calls on Americans to seek greatness rather than accept the lie of weakness and shame. Joe Biden represents his masters, the authors of these lies about America. But every generation left to their bully tactics, their devious attempts to corrupt the nation’s children from the earliest ages into their sick blood cult of perversity dims the sight of the once glorious concept of freedom and sacred morality.

Let him speak, let him rant and rail against honesty and decency, calling it corrupt and vile as all goodness must seem to such a creature.

The situation may sometimes seem novel or new to us, but in fact this impasse has been a long time a-building. Although things have definitely hotted up over recent years, there’s actually nothing novel or new about it at all. Likewise for the one, the only way out of it. We’ve all long known what the sole solution is; ugly as it admittedly is, it’s time-honored, tried and true also.

That said, I’m not nearly as sanguine as TL about all this. Having been emboldened by the passive non-response to the Covid lockdowns; the blatantly fraudulent 2020 “election”; and the grotesque J6 persecution for the heinous crime of “parading,” of all things, the ramping-up of belligerent, threatening rhetoric openly calling for war against MAGA Americans culminating in Benito Biden’s bellicose diatribe the other night isn’t something we can afford to wave away as if it meant nothing whatsoever.

PSYCH!!!

Fascinating stuff, if also a bit disturbing.

5 Psychological Experiments That Explain the Modern World
“Cognitive Dissonance”, “Diffusion of Responsibility”, and “learned helplessness” are phrases that regularly do the rounds, but where do they come from and what (do) they mean?

Well, here are the important psycho-social experiments that teach us about the way people think, but more than that they actually explain how our modern world works, and just how we got into this mess.

The Experiment: Let’s start with the most famous. Beginning in 1963, Yale psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted a series of experiments now referred to as the Milgram Obedience Experiments.

The setting is simple, Subject A is told to conduct a memory test on Subject B, and administer electric shocks when he makes mistakes. Of course, Subject B does not exist, and the electric shocks are not real. Instead, actors would cry, ask for help or pretend to be unconscious, all the while Subject A would be encouraged to carry on administering the shocks.

The vast majority of subjects carried on with the test and gave the shocks, despite the distress of “Subject B”.

The Conclusion: In his paper on this experiment Stanley Milgram coined the term “diffusion of responsibility”, describing the psychological process by which a person can excuse or justify doing harm to someone if they believe it’s not really their fault, they won’t be held accountable, or they do not have a choice.

The Application: Almost literally endless. All institutions can use this phenomenon to pressure people into acting against their own moral code. The army, the police, hospital staff – wherever there is a hierarchy or perceived authority, people will fall victim to the diffusion of their own responsibility.

NOTE: They made a decent film about Milgram, and the backlash his experiments caused called Experimenter. In recent years there has been a major pushback on this experiment, with articles in the MSM attacking the findings and methodology and new “researchers” claiming “it does not prove what you think it does.”

Though they’re all quite interesting, the story of the “Monkey Ladder” experiment has to be my favorite of them, for reasons you’ll understand when you read about it. The takeaway?

So, there they are. Five of the most critical pieces of psychological research ever done, hopefully going forward nobody will be left in the dark when these concepts or experiments are referenced.

But the point of this article is not to just make you, the reader, understand these experiments…it is also meant to remind you that they do.

The people in charge, the elite, the 1%, “The Party”. The powers that be – or shouldn’t be – whatever you want to call them.

They know these experiments. They have studied them. They’ve probably replicated them countless times on grand scales and in unethical ways we can barely imagine. Who knows exactly what takes place in the dank dark dungeons of the deep state?

Just remember, they know how the human mind works.

  • They know they can make people do anything if they reassure them they won’t be held responsible.
  • They know that they can rely on people to abuse any power they’re given, OR believe they are powerless if they’re treated that way.
  • They know that peer pressure will change a lot of people’s minds even in the face of undeniable reality, especially if you make them feel completely alone.
  • They know that if you offer people only a small reward for completing a task, they will make up their own psychological justification for taking it.
  • They know that people will mindlessly do whatever everyone else is doing without ever asking for a reason.
  • And they know that people will happily believe something that never happened if it is repeated often enough.

They know all of this. And they use that knowledge all the time – All. The. Time.

Every commercial you see, every article you read, every movie they release, every item on the news, every “viral” social media post, every trending hashtag.

Every war. Every pandemic. Every headline.

All of them are constructed with these principles in mind to elicit specific emotional reactions that steer your behaviour and beliefs. That’s how the media works, not to inform you, not to entertain you…but to control you.

And they have it down to a science. Always remember that.

Indeed they do. The ginned up CoVid panic proved that beyond all possibility of doubt or debate.

Putting a face on the Deep State

Bill Barr’s, for one.

“Number one is that I think a lot of the attacks on the FBI are over the top because a decision like this is not made by the FBI,” former Attorney General William Barr told the Bari Weiss podcast on August 25.

“In fact, I don’t think the FBI would push a decision that it’s best to go in and search and obtain those documents after being jerked around for a year and a half. The decision would be made at the Department of Justice, by subordinates of the AG, and ultimately signed off on by the AG. The FBI would be told to go and execute it. I think the idea that the FBI is the problem here is misplaced.”

The former AG was more disturbed by “the constant pandering to outrage” on the right, without discussion of whether the outrage had any merit. The FBI seized Trump’s passports, leaving the impression that the former president had committed a crime and was now a flight risk. FBI agents also rummaged through the closets of Melania Trump, an act of pure intimidation. With Trump attorneys forced outside, the FBI could easily have planted or destroyed information. If that is not cause for outrage, it’s hard to imagine what might qualify.

On the other hand, the former AG explained, “I don’t think that Chris Wray is that type of leader nor do I think the people around Chris Wray are those types of leaders,” people who might “throw the FBI’s weight around to interfere in the political process.” Barr thinks Wray is “very cautious about that,” but observers have to wonder.

When selected as FBI boss, Wray denied any “spying” had taken place against the Trump campaign. As the world now knows, the FBI did spy on the Trump campaign. In 2018, Wray proclaimed, “I do not believe special counsel Mueller is on a witch hunt.”

Mueller’s “professional investigation,” aided by partisan Democrats, turned up no evidence of collusion with Russia. All told, Christopher Wray doesn’t sound like someone who is “very cautious” about interfering in the political process. Wray is all-in with the Mar-a-Lago raid, and as it turns out, so is William Barr.

“What is the nature of the highly classified information?” Barr wondered. “What is the evidence, if any, of active conceit by the president or those around him in Mar-a-Lago to mislead the government?” Remember, in Barr’s view, Trump had been “jerking around” the FBI for a year and a half, so they had to launch the raid.

To all but the willfully blind, the FBI is now the American KGB, and like that organization engaged in “special tasks,” not exactly within the law. The FBI plants evidence (funds planted on Trump associate George Papodopoulos), falsifies evidence (Kevin Clinesmith changing the email about Carter Page), engages in political stagecraft, (the fake Whitmer kidnap plot) and pressures social media platforms to avoid news of Hunter Biden’s laptop, supposedly “Russian disinformation.”

Back in 2020, Attorney General Barr hadn’t seen evidence of voter fraud on a scale that would have affected the outcome of the election. Weiss did not press Barr for details on the audits his DOJ conducted on races that suddenly reversed in favor of Biden.

Barr provided no tallies of the number of illegals who had voted in California, where the “motor voter” program automatically registers illegals to vote. Stuffed ballot boxes, as shown in 2000 Mules, also escaped his notice. No second thoughts about voter fraud, but the former AG and CIA man remained certain about POTUS 45.

“Trump is his own worst enemy,” Barr told Weiss. “He’s incorrigible. He doesn’t take advice from people. I said to him when I first started that I thought he was going to lose the election unless he adjusted a little bit. And if he did adjust, he could go down in history as a great president. He continued to be self-indulgent and petty and turned off key constituencies that ultimately made the difference in the election.”

For the former AG, voter fraud had nothing to do with it. Embattled Americans can thank Barr for providing a moment of clarity.

Donald Trump is not his own worst enemy. Donald Trump’s worst enemies include his own attorney general, members of his own party, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which has now crossed the line.

Whatever special tasks the FBI has planned, former attorney general William Barr will be there to back them up, just as he did with FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi. The defender of the deep state can be no friend of the people.

Precisely, indubitably so. I was foolish enough to buy into all the “square shooter, impartial seeker of truth and justice” guff early on, which in hindsight is kinda embarrassing. As a commenter puts it, Bill Barr IS the Deep State; he and his ilk can only ever be part of the problem, never the solution.

Row it back Redux

Sorry, Joe, we heard ya just fine the first time.

Joe Biden on Friday walked back his attacks on the millions of American citizens who support former President Donald Trump, telling reporters that he doesn’t consider “any Trump supporter a threat to the country.”

This comes less than a day after he called Trump supporters “MAGA forces,” and warned that they are a “threat to this country.”

The Biden White House in recent weeks has sharpened its attacks against its political opponents, calling Trump supporters a far-right “extremist threat” to Democracy who are motivated by an ideology of “semi-fascism.” That disturbingly harsh rhetoric culminated in a Hitleresque diatribe Thursday night, shocking and horrifying at least half the nation.

“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic,” Biden bellowed during his speech at Independence National Historical Parkin Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He went on to assert that “there’s no question that the Republican party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans,” and repeated his claim that they are “a threat to this country.”

Doubling down on this message, Biden’s Twitter account sent out the following tweet just before his address: “Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans are a threat to the very soul of this country.”

Following an event on the American Rescue Plan in the South Court Auditorium on the White House campus, Friday morning, Biden denied that he called Trump supporters a threat to the country.

“I don’t consider any Trump supporter a threat to the country,” he said in response to a question from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy.

In fairness, as conservative commentator Auron MacIntyre quipped on Twitter: Biden “may legitimately not remember that he gave a speech last night.”

Yup. Even more important, we must all bear in mind that—last night, today, and EVERY day, until he finally assumes room temperature and joins the Choir invisible at long, long last—the marginally-ambulatory rutabaga was only saying what he’d been told to say. Deb closes out her post with some bitter truth from, of all places, the RNC.

Sadly, the comments section abounds with depressing hoo-raw like this:

Biden is not allowed to walk back his assertion that half the country is deplorable, dangerous, evil, criminal.

We will highlight his speech all the way to Election Day.

Uh huh, that’s nice. And then, when they rig it just like they already did in 2020…?



Personally, I think it amounts to adding insult to injury when the addled-pated old fraud pokes out that forked tongue of his to announce that hey, gang, I really don’t consider y’all a threat like I said I did last night. For the sake of this beleaguered, virtually extinct nation, we’d all better hope like hell that there are still enough of us out there who DO pose a credible threat to the Power’s Sacred Democracy™ (GAG, SPIT) to save our bacon in the end.

Embrace anger

We stand at the crossroads, ostensibly “led” by a corrupt, senile pedophile who is stumbling through history without the vaguest clue of who he is, what he’s doing, or where he’s going.

The meat of the speech was no better than Biden’s health. He kept repeating the term “MAGA,” painting those who voted for Donald Trump as evil fascists that pose a direct threat to the very well-being of the nation. That’s ludicrous, and as I’ve shared before, it’s also incredibly dangerous. When you begin attack tens of millions of Americans as scum, suggesting they are going to destroy “our democracy,” that justifies just about anything in response, doesn’t it? Someone is going to get hurt based on his incitement.

For sure and certain, which is perfectly meet and just. After tonight, it is absolutely imperative for Real Americans—or, put in the way I plan to use from here on out because fuck Joe Biden, that’s why, MAGA Americans—to see to it that it’ll be shitlibs doing most of the hurting, not Our Side.

Some may see this as a sad or lamentable situation, but I must admit that I no longer can. Let our course of action henceforth be the one commended to us by our Founding Fathers as the only just and proper way to deal with tyrants like Biden and his vile Democrat Party. Contra Pedo Jaux and his forked-tongue blather, when anger is righteous, it should be embraced not with reluctance or regret, but pridefully, even joyously. The solemn American duty to offer stiff resistance to all tyranny for the sake of ourselves and our posterity is no burden; it’s an honor.

All that aside, though, Biden’s brazen call for violence, bloodshed, and hatred was not entirely without its moments.


Heh. That’s the spirit. Resist we much, fuckface.

Update! STILL not getting it.

Tonight’s speech was a dark moment in American history. It shows a man desperate and gasping at straws as he sees his presidency—and the country he claims to love—crumbling around him.

“Desperate”? No, no, a thousand times no. What I saw was a cocksure, aggressive usurper blatantly doing battlespace prep, urging his Satanic followers on to war against their erstwhile countrymen. Unless and until we recognize what’s taking place right before our very eyes, we can never truly be ready for what’s coming.

Quote of the century of the week

Gotta be this one, from Reagan’s pal Gorby.

Imagine a country that flies into space, launches Sputniks, creates such a defense system, and it can’t resolve the problem of women’s pantyhose. There’s no toothpaste, no soap powder, not the basic necessities of life. It was incredible and humiliating to work in such a government.

Funny, our own domestic baggers de douche don’t seem at all embarrassed about it.

Welcome to Demoworld

Where the “president” is a senile kiddie-diddler, every “election” is fraudulent, every cupboard is bare, and every day is Friday the 13th.

Horrific Biden Consequence, 20 Million American Households Behind on Electricity Bills, Pending Shutoff
Long-term CTH readers might remember in 2014 when President Obama claimed U.S. families had been paying too little for electricity for too long. As soon as Joe Biden took office, he began implementing the Green New Deal energy policy that, (a) directly forces higher costs for energy; and (b) is now creating massive problems.

Steve Cortes calls this the backside of the Biden created inflation hurricane. The backside of a hurricane is the worst because it hits from the opposite direction upon already weakened infrastructure.

The hurricane metaphor is apt because any increase in energy costs will be accompanied by the simultaneous arrival of another wave of food inflation, as the massive increases in field and crop prices start to feed into the food supply chain headed to our forks next month.

Making matters that much worse, Bloomberg is now reporting that 20 million households are now behind in their utility bills, specifically electricity bills, and the moratorium on shut offs has ended.

One in six U.S. households, that is tens-of-millions of Americans, are now facing having their electricity turned off due to lack of payment. It is certainly understandable how this horrific outcome would happen. Joe Biden’s energy policies are destroying working class families with unsustainably higher prices.

20 million households is a catastrophic level of utility default. This is a serious issue with major social implications created by the desperation of those families. Middle- and lower-income families cannot survive this level of financial pressure.

Rents are behind. Mortgages are behind. Car payments are behind. And now this report on utility bills.

Hrm. Seems to me like this might be the perfect time to order those self-same impoverished Americans—millions upon millions of whom were unable to afford college themselves—to foot the bill for the unpaid student debt of all those poor, suffering Yale-law graduates, no?

And, in the middle of all this, the Biden administration has just committed $300 billion (which we don’t have – it’ll all have to be borrowed) to pay down student loan balances. A more fiscally ridiculous, budgetarily insane, economically short-sighted decision would be hard to imagine…and just think of the inflationary pressures it will release on its own, even without considering other examples of government overreach and irresponsible expenditure.

Remember Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum? This is their vision of a future Utopia.

Yep. Must be a coinkydink, I’m thinking. Bayou Pete goes on to point us towards another extremely interesting coinkdink, duly noted over at Doug Casey’s International Man.

The term “Nazi” refers to Nationalsozialistisch, or “National Socialism,” and its overall concept was fascism – a concept that encompassed a corporatist economic system, socialist political system and totalitarian rule.

Whilst this description may seem rather convoluted, the concept was believed by Wall Street and much of the US government in the 1930s as the way of the future. So much so that they provided considerable financial and logistical support for Nazi Germany during the 1930s and even into the 1940s.

Following the war, only a handful of Germans were prosecuted for war crimes at the Nuremburg trials. Countless others were taken on board by both US industry and the government following the war, to educate American industry in German methodology.

For many years following the war, Nazi concepts remained under the radar, but in recent years, they’ve become a major force within not only the US, but also US ally states: Canada, Australia, the UK and, most notably, the EU.

The basic concepts are perennial in their attraction to those who seek to dominate:

  1. Create an uber class of those who are highly positioned in both industry and politics.
  2. Cripple the middle class economically, so that they no longer have the power to make their own life decisions.
  3. Offer dramatically increased dependency on the State as a relief from the economic hardship created by the state.
  4. Remove freedoms, in trade for the promise of largesse from the State.
  5. Institute a police state and totalitarian rule to ensure that the new paradigm will be lasting.
  6. Once controls are fully implemented and the populace has become dependent on the new system, begin to remove the promised entitlements.

The idea behind this final bullet point is that, once the population is thoroughly dependent upon the state, they will have lost the power to object or rebel if entitlements are removed. They are then fully dominated.

The government will have full control of every aspect of your life, plus the task of removing any obstacles to your happiness.

Sounds wonderful. Where do I sign up?

But if we stop and think for a moment, we might wish to ask a few questions.

For one thing, you give up all rights at the beginning of the deal. You will have lost all your possessions and all your freedoms. You will be 100% dependent upon the state. Their part of the deal is to be delivered on the back end.

But once you’re totally dependent and can no longer extricate yourself from the deal, there’s nothing to stop them from removing the punch bowl… Oh-oh.

Gee, whodathunkit, that all these fresh, innovative Progressivist ideas would turn out to be just the same old fascist shinola underneath a newly-repainted hood? More, and much, much creepier, can be perused at the IM link, of which you should definitely read the all.

I’ll say this much: hard times are right around the corner for us—far harder than any American alive today has ever come even close to experiencing. And all of this impending suffering and woe, every last bit of it, is the perfectly predictable result of the warped, proven-disastrous scourge of Leftism. A fine opportunity to run this Omar and the Howlers classic, I do believe.


What the hell, might’s well enjoy ourselves an encore performance of another badass Omar number, no? Happily, this one’s actually a two-fer.


Update! Deets on the Biden Bailout.

This plan isn’t just a bailout for well-off college degree holders. It’s a slap in the face for hardworking Americans.

It’s a slap in the face to the working-class father who dreamed of sending his daughter to college. He took on an extra shift at work, skipped vacations, and put off needed home repairs, all so that he could save every penny so that his daughter wouldn’t need to go into debt to go to school.

It’s a slap in the face for the recent college graduate who decided to live with three roommates and take the bus to work every day so that every extra dollar could be put toward getting himself out of student loan debt.

It’s a slap in the face for the high school graduate who decided to enlist in the military and take advantage of our country’s promise to him: You serve, we pay for your college.

With the swipe of a pen, Biden made a mockery of such sacrifices.

His plan aims to forgive up to $20,000 of student loan debt for Pell Grant holders and $10,000 for all other debt holders earning under $125,000 a year (or $250,000 for a household).

The Biden plan is estimated to cost American taxpayers roughly $300 billion at a time when they’re struggling to cope with record-high inflation.

This unprecedented, legally questionable action from the Biden administration begs countless unanswered questions.

The author goes on to ask a handful of ’em, but I have one or two myself: Why should these exorbitantly-priced diploma mills get off scot-free from a “crisis” they played a huge part in creating? Is it in any way reasonable or fair that they aren’t expected to pay at least some price for their prominent role in this flagrant scam?

In the end, it all comes down to this.

In reality, forgiving student loan debt isn’t just bad public policy for failing to address the root causes of skyrocketing college tuition. It is also a sign of disrespect for most Americans and a reminder that the priority for policymakers in Washington is to assuage the elite at the expense of the working class.

A country that respected its workers wouldn’t ask them to pay for college degrees they didn’t get. It wouldn’t dismiss the sacrifices of those who paid and ask them to pay again through taxation for those who didn’t.

A country that took seriously the impact of inflation on American families wouldn’t make the problem worse through poorly designed elitist handouts.

Fairness and responsibility have left the conversation when it comes to loan forgiveness, and those values have been replaced by greed and victimhood.

College is indeed too expensive, and for many it’s not worth it. Unfortunately, those who decided not to go into debt to attend college now will be forced to pay anyway.

The refusal to admit the obvious—that the federal student loan program has been a massive failure that drives up college prices—is nothing short of a betrayal of the American people.

Sorry, close but not quite there yet. What it REALLY is is a big, fat “Fuck you, chumps!” for them, accompanied by two upraised middle fingers and a hearty Bronx cheer, all courtesy of a bogus “elite” which, having grown insolent from being allowed to get away with way too much for way too long now, desperately needs a refresher course in all the reasons they ought to fear us instead.
