Bye, bye, burger

The drive to deny Real Americans a say in what they will and will not eat is no new thing, and nobody should be the least bit surprised at it. As with so much else, it’s but one aspect of a multifarious campaign that is alarmingly near to its successful conclusion.

As the Fauci emails prove, the only difference between a conspiracy theory and the truth is 12-24 months. As we’ve told people for almost three decades, Agenda21 is not some crazy conspiracy theory, it’s an actual United Nations strategic plan by globalists to “transform” (where have we heard THAT term before?) our planet under the rubric of “sustainability.”

Oklahoma cattle rancher Andrea Hutchison has been warning people that the globalists have infiltrated the cattle and beef industries (along with every other food creation and processing industry) and are slowly strangling them with burdensome over-regulation that only serves one purpose: to put cattle ranchers out of business.

NGOs like the World Wildlife Fund not only have seats at the table where industry decisions are discussed, they are driving the agenda. Small, independent meatpackers have been driven out of business and corporate consolidations have left our entire supply of beef in the hands of four transnational conglomerates. Competitive markets have been reduced down to one and that remaining market has been grossly distorted by government involvement.

If this all sounds dire, it is. And both Republicans and Democrats are to blame. We expect Democrats to be anti-American, but it’s inexcusable for Republicans to claim to be representing We the People while at the same time working against our interests. Go to Oklahoma Independent Stockgrowers Association and R-CALF USA to learn more about pending legislation and to sign petitions to preserve and protect our beef.

I repeat: from my cold, dead hands, motherfuckers. I’m with my old friend Jim:



I’m pretty sure that at least some of that footage came from the pure-genius Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr TV ads from a few years back. Such as:



My mouth is watering alright, but strangely enough I ain’t hungry.

The truly wonderful thing about those so-called “Slutburger” ads, apart from the toothsome, near-nekkid babes therein, is how eye-poppingly apoplectic the FemiNazis waxed over the “shameless exploitation” of those poor, put-upon über-hotties. Admittedly, though, it wasn’t just the shitlibs who were provoked into nearly busting a ventricle over the racy ads. But whatever, I like ’em. I like the burgers, too.

Evergreen

Francis commends our attention to a rather brilliant 1994 (!) exposition by Sam Francis which, unfortunately, will live forever, its relevance undiminished.

On the morning of September 22, 1993, a law-abiding citizen named B.W. Sanders was driving his car down the street in Raleigh, North Carolina, when all of a sudden he found himself flagged down by a policeman and presented with a ticket for $25. Mr. Sanders, it turned out, had not been wearing his seat belt, and under a new state law, that crime carries the penalty he received. But in this case it was not just a traffic cop who flagged down Mr. Sanders. It was a force of some six dozen police officers as well as the governor of North Carolina himself, James B. Hunt. The governor was searching for a photo-op with which to advertise both the new seat belt law and his own personal devotion to law-and-order. Not only the 70 or more police officers but also an innumerable supply of newspaper reporters and TV newsmen were on the scene to record the governor’s triumph over the forces of lawlessness, and the next day Mr. Sanders’ wicked ways were recorded in the public press for his family, his employers, his neighbors, and indeed posterity to gander at. To make doubly certain that criminals like Mr. Sanders got the message loud and clear, Governor Hunt held a news conference near the state capital and harangued a crowd of some 150 police officers and state troopers, who were able to take time off from the apprehension of public enemies like Mr. Sanders to attend the governor’s words. “I took an oath to protect the people of North Carolina,” intoned the Tar Heel State’s answer to Dirty Harry, “and this is one way we must do it. . . Folks, we’re serious. We mean it. We’re going to do this.” And indeed, serious he is. As part of the war on the unbuckled seat belt crisis, the Raleigh News and Observer reported, “Law officers in all 100 counties [of the state] will intensify their efforts to find and cite motorists not using their seat belts. Agencies will compete against each other, winning cash for turning in the best performance.”

Governor Hunt’s grandstanding might be harmless enough were it not for certain other facts about certain other crimes in North Carolina that also sometimes make the news. Only a week before the apprehension and public humiliation of Mr. Sanders, the same newspaper reported on the state’s prison crisis. It seems that North Carolina has another new law in addition to the one on seat belts. This other law, passed by the General Assembly, imposes a cap on how many inmates can be incarcerated in the state prison, and the crisis is that, under this cap, most of the inmates now eligible for parole were imprisoned for violent and assaultive crimes. Most of the less dangerous criminals have already been turned loose, and now the prison system must release public enemies even more dangerous than drivers who do not buckle their seat belts. Since last June, no less than 14 parolees (including one of the men now charged with the murder of Michael Jordan’s father) have been arrested and charged with murder, and another parolee, a veteran of the state’s death row, murdered his girlfriend and then committed suicide, thereby unfairly depriving Governor Hunt of yet another photo-op. Last August alone, North Carolina paroled 3,700 prison inmates. One might think that if the governor of the state and the 150 police officers and state troopers who took time out of their public jobs to listen to him slap himself on the back for busting poor Mr. Sanders were really interested in upholding their oaths of office, they might turn their attention to the results of releasing hardened and violent criminals who have already been caught, sentenced, and imprisoned.

But the saga of the Napoleon of Crime in the homely person of B.W. Sanders is not an isolated incident. It is a representative tale that illustrates what I take to be an entirely new form of government, one that as far as I can tell is unique in human history and unknown to political theory, ancient or modern. Probably no other society has failed as dismally as the United States in the late 20th century to meet the basic test of any civilization: to enforce simple order and protect the lives and property of its members. History knows of many societies that have succumbed to anarchy when the central government proved unable to control warlords, rebels, and marauding invaders. But anarchy is not quite the problem here.

In the United States today, the government performs many of its functions more or less effectively. The mail is delivered (sometimes); the population, or at least part of it, is counted (sort of); and taxes are collected (you bet). You can accuse the federal leviathan of many things—corruption, incompetence, waste, bureaucratic strangulation—but mere anarchy, the lack of effective government, is not one of them. Yet at the same time, the state does not perform effectively or justly its basic duty of enforcing order and punishing criminals, and in this respect its failures do bring the country, or important parts of it, close to a state of anarchy. But that semblance of anarchy is coupled with many of the characteristics of tyranny, under which innocent and law-abiding citizens are punished by the state or suffer gross violations of their rights and liberty at the hands of the state. The result is what seems to be the first society in history in which elements of both anarchy and tyranny pertain at the same time and seem to be closely connected with each other and to constitute, more or less, opposite sides of the same coin.

This condition, which in some of my columns I have called “anarcho-tyranny,” is essentially a kind of Hegelian synthesis of what appear to be dialectical opposites: the combination of oppressive government power against the innocent and the law-abiding and, simultaneously, a grotesque paralysis of the ability or the will to use that power to carry out basic public duties such as protection or public safety. And, it is characteristic of anarcho-tyranny that it not only fails to punish criminals and enforce legitimate order but also criminalizes the innocent. At the same time the governor of North Carolina grotesquely fails to uphold his famous oath to protect the citizens of his state by keeping convicted felons in prison, he has no problem finding the time to organize a massive waste of his time and the taxpayers’ money to hound and humiliate a perfectly innocent citizen for the infraction of a trivial traffic law.

In fact, we criminalize the innocent all the time in the United States today—through asset seizure laws that confiscate your property even before you’re convicted of possessing illegal drugs; through mandatory brainwashing programs designed to reconstruct your mind with “sensitivity training,” “human relations,” and rehabilitation if you display politically incorrect ideas on certain occasions; through prosecuting people like Bernhard Goetz who use guns to defend themselves; and through gun control laws in general. Under anarcho-tyranny, gun control laws do not usually target criminals who use guns to commit their crimes. The usual suspects are noncriminals who own, carry, or use guns against criminals—like the Korean store owners in Los Angeles or like Mr. Goetz, who spent several months in jail after picking off the three hoodlums who were making ready to liberate him from life and limb.

Indeed, the government response to crime is by far the best illustration of anarcho-tyranny. On the one hand, police forces are better equipped, better trained, and more expensive than ever before in history. Police routinely use computers, have access to nationwide information banks, and carry weapons and communication gadgets that most tyrants of the past would drool over. Yet the police seem utterly baffled by the murder rate. None of their high-tech whiz-bang helps much to catch serious criminals after they have struck, to stop them before they strike, or to keep them off the streets after they are caught. But while the police cannot do much about murderers, rapists, and robbers, they are geniuses at nabbing less serious lawbreakers. They can crack down on tax-dodgers and speeders, jaywalkers and pornography patrons, seat belt nonbucklers and epithet-emitters, gun owners and graffiti-scratchers.

Obviously, such desperate characters are not the reason decent people are scared to walk the streets at night, and no matter how many of them you put in the pokey, civilization and the order it is based on will not survive unless you control the streets. Under anarcho-tyranny, the goal is to avoid performing such basic functions as stopping real crime and to think up purely fictitious functions that will raise revenue, enhance the power of the police or bureaucrats, and foster the illusion that the state is doing its job. The victims of these new functions and laws are precisely, otherwise, law-abiding and innocent citizens. It’s easier and more profitable to enforce the law against the marginal lawbreaker than against those habitually committed to spreading mayhem.

As you may have gathered from the length of my excerpt, this remarkable tour de force is indeed, umm, expansive, shall we say. Nonetheless, Francis somehow manages to keep a tight, laser-like focus on his premise from start to finish; yes, there’s a lot to digest here, but there’s not a wasted word or phrase in it. Another thing to take note of: every last one of the issues Francis cites as examples of creeping anarcho-tyranny is still being used as by our lords and masters today, as justification for another turn of the one-way ratchet, another tightening of the leash.

Worse yet, as familiar as these issues will seem to you, do not fail to note that, likewise in every single case, the “problems” the promoters of anarcho-tyranny claimed to be attempting to “solve”—street crime and public safety; murder; urban chaos and decay; auto-accident deaths; etc—have either held steady or actually gotten worse.

Ahh, but even back then there were shining glimmers of light and hope occasionally—demonstrations of the put-upon citizenry taking matters into their own hands out of sheer desperation, yielding positive results. Exhibit A:

Yet there are signs that some Americans are not buying into the lie of anarcho-tyranny. At least as far as crime and personal safety are concerned, some are awakening to the ancient lesson of republican government, that in order to govern yourself politically you must first be able to govern yourself personally and morally. And, that lesson means assuming responsibility for your own protection. For months in 1987 in Detroit, citizens complained to the police about teenage prostitutes from a crack house in the neighborhood who solicited old men and adolescents on the street, about drug dealers firing guns in the air for fun, and about a shoot-out between drug gangs while neighborhood children played in the street. Not once did the police respond to any of the repeated calls. Then one day after the shoot-out, two local men named Angelo Parisi and Perry Kent walked up the street, set fire to the crack house, and burned it to the ground, and within minutes police arrived to charge them with two counts of arson and assault with a deadly weapon. With community support, both men were acquitted by a jury of all charges, and there are stories similar to theirs in other American cities.

Good on ’em. With things having gotten so very much worse, such examples appear to be ones worth learning from, even emulating as and where feasible. Not that I would ever advocate such brazen vigilantism, of course. Not so’s anybody could tell, I wouldn’t. Francis’s piece closes thusly:

Mr. Parisi and Mr. Kent, Miss Quigley and Mr. Penso, have discovered the dirty little secret that can sweep anarcho-tyranny out of office, that anarcho-tyranny flourishes only when citizens surrender their rights and their duties of protecting themselves, assuming responsibility for themselves, and governing themselves, and that when the anarcho-tyrants promise to take over and perform these duties themselves, they are uttering a lie that leads to slavery and the jungle at the same time. When anarcho-tyranny flourishes, it protects no one except the elites who fatten on it, and it encourages only the withering of self-government and responsibility. In the movie The Magnificent Seven, the bandit leader, played by Eli Wallach, says of the Mexican peasants he is robbing and killing, “If God had not wanted them sheared, he would not have made them sheep.” The peasants in the end show that they are not sheep, not by hiring gunfighters and killers to do their fighting for them, which is what we do when we set up the BATF and “police saturation,” but by learning how to fight for themselves. Sheep do not need to fight for themselves; they have shepherds who do it for them, until the day comes when the shepherds lead their sheep to slaughter. Only when more Americans learn the lessons these citizens have learned, the lessons the peasants in The Magnificent Seven had to learn, and only when they are willing to act on those lessons will anarcho-tyranny itself wither away; only when Americans take back their own streets themselves will they have any streets that are safe. In the words of Lord Byron, “Who would be free, themselves must strike the blow.”

Even as dark as things look today, even though certain specifics of our own admittedly dire situation are in truth unique, really, t’was ever thus. The struggle between liberty and tyranny, between those who would live free and those who would rule over them, is eternal. It does not end, and will not—cannot, actually. It is part and parcel of the human condition: each new generation must face it, in one form or another.

You need to read all of the Sam Francis article, natch, but you also don’t want to miss Porretto’s repost of an oldie but goodie of his own devising, which makes a danged suitable companion piece.

Another look in

More on the outrageous and intolerable persecution-by-prosecution of an entirely blameless young man, Lucas Gerhard.

LSSU is something of an “aggie” college, with a large and respected criminal justice program. Still, as is the case for 99% of American colleges, it manages to have a “social justice and community activism” page as part of its campus life — although the link to that page is dead. One of LSSU’s leftist students, a young woman, frequently argued with Lucas, so much so that he blocked her on social media.

In the summer of 2019, Lucas bought himself an AR-15, which he brought to campus with him. At the time, he promptly followed school rules, checking his gun and ammunition in with the LSSU safety office. At around the same time, Lucas sent a private Snapchat joke to friends, showing a picture of his kitted-out rifle, with the message, “Takin’ this bad boy up, this outta [sic] make the snowflakes melt, aye?”  As if it wasn’t already clear that this was a joke, he added, “And I mean snowflakes as in snow.”

Two leftist students saw that image on a friend’s phone and took a picture of it. The young woman who fought with Lucas then used the Snapchat image to file a report with the police, claiming that Lucas was making threats.

When the police showed up, Lucas explained that he was just making a joke about people whose brains melted when they were faced with an opposing political ideology. Nevertheless, the police arrested him the next day and charged him with violating Michigan Penal Code §750.543, which governs making terrorist threats. Under the law, a person makes a terrorist threat if he “[t]hreatens to commit an act of terrorism and communicates the threat to any other person.” The penalty calls for up to twenty years in prison plus as much as $20,000 in fines.

During the pre-trial hearing, the prosecutor claimed that Lucas had multiple “contacts” with the law, which was a lie by omission. While campus leftists frequently tried to sic the police on Lucas, he was invariably found innocent of the charge against him. One example was when he wore his OCSO cadet uniform while carrying an authorized bag of police training gear to a lecture he was giving — another “threat.” There were no charges, nor were there charges when someone vandalized his car.

Even worse, during the pre-trial hearing, the prosecutor played a graphic video of the mosque shooting earlier that year in Christchurch, New Zealand. Faced with the prosecutor’s “evidence,” the court denied Lucas bond. Instead, he was sent to jail, where he spent 83 days, a problem for a Type I diabetic, before his father could bail him out. He’s been under complete house arrest ever since, with a $500/month tether and no access to education or the internet.

So why am I writing about this case? Because every conservative needs to understand that, while we’re still slack-jawed with disbelief and dismay about events in America in the last year, leftists at every level — the White House, Congress, statehouses, courts, prosecutors’ offices, colleges, and dormitories — are engaged in all-out war.

Bingo. Which only makes the very next sentence seem all the more odd. And, frankly, embarrassing.

If we are to avoid cultural, political, and constitutional defeat, we need to adopt their legal tactics: letter-writing campaigns, phone calls, non-violent protests…anything to raise the volume.

We most certainly do NOT, thenksveddymuch. The “justice” system is now just another wholly-owned subsidiary of Leftist Inc, having been co-opted and subsumed long ago, just as nearly every other important American organization and institution has. Appeals for justice made to offices and/or processes under complete Enemy control may make some of us feel better about their plight, if only for a brief spell. But such appeals—or entreaties, or supplication, to call things by their rightful names—won’t do a damned thing to halt a seemingly endless train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, that we all bear witness to each and every day.

Might as well ask the Tooth Fairy to flit in and save us while you’re down there on your knees begging. That’s about as likely to produce the desired outcome, and can’t be any more of a waste of time and effort.

Question everything

The imperative of our era.

There is no problem in the United States that could not be solved if we were still a nation of critical thinkers.  But critical thinking has been intentionally replaced by dogma.  Having a degree is not equivalent to having an education.  Knowing something is not the same as understanding it.  In a world saturated with information, the “key” to distinguishing between truth and falsehood is one question, one word: “why?”

Why should schools and companies discriminate based on skin color? Why should my race say more about me than my brain? Why is it okay for federal immigration law to be ignored while federal tax laws must be obeyed? Why are Americans who defend the Constitution treated as domestic terrorists? Why are Americans who burn down cities treated as heroes? Why does every “solution” to climate change involve the expansion of government powers and the contraction of personal liberties? Why must the government police speech in order to keep it free? Why must government disarm citizens in order to keep them safe? Why is the government so afraid of the people that it must spy on them at all times? Why is it no longer “our government,” but rather the government?

Are those questions dangerous in a “free” society? Of course not. They lead to discussion, which leads to debate, which leads to contemplation, which leads to greater understanding, which creates a more perceptive mind, a more capable American, and a more complete human being. When government deems some questions subversive, it is admitting that it no longer represents the people, but rather rules over them. And any public school system that replaces the tools necessary for developing critical thinking skills with rigid indoctrination countenancing no dissent is producing not healthy citizens, but useful slaves.

The great philosopher George Carlin used to say, “Don’t just teach your children to read[.]…Teach them to question what they read. Teach them to question everything.” That’s how real learning is done — in the trenches with one hand on a flashlight searching for knowledge and the other gripping a shovel, digging up the oft-buried truth. Carlin also knew that when it comes to truth, governments cannot be trusted: “I have certain rules I live by. My first rule: I don’t believe anything the government tells me.” If more Americans could learn this simple principle, our society would be in a much better place. Free people with free minds do not need politicians to do their thinking for them.

The science is settled? The time for debate is over? Never. Only people interested in stealing your agency and capturing your soul say such things. It is our capacity for reason that makes each of us distinct and our distinctive qualities that make each human life individually valuable. When government deems individual minds unnecessary, then individual lives become disposable. That’s when governments do great evil.

Ahh, but what about when government deems individual minds not just unnecessary, but an active, credible threat to their own designs? What’s to be done about government then?

Life in the USSSA

The United Soviet Socialist States of Amerika, that would be. Not to be confused—not EVER, not on your life—with the FUSA.

Lucas Gerhard is a 21-year-old man. Instead of celebrating his graduation from Lake Superior State University in Sault St. Marie, MI, in the criminal justice field and looking for a job in law enforcement, Lucas is locked down in his father’s home, wearing an ankle bracelet.

Probably a good thing, getting this dangerous criminal off the streets, don’tcha think? I mean, I’m confident this young punk is a menace to his community, and to all right-thinking, decent Americans, right?

Lucas is an Eagle Scout and has no criminal record.

Oh. Well. Hrm.

Okay, at this point I think it only right to warn all CF lifers afflicted by high blood pressure or heart problems: from here on out, I personally guar-on-tee that this bag o’ dicks is gonna REALLY piss y’all off.

During his trial, the prosecutor attempted to paint Lucas as a threat to the school community, claiming that he had numerous “contacts” with Law Enforcement at LSSU.

Lucas’s father explained: “The so-called ‘contacts’ were made as a result of more anonymous calls to LSSU public safety, and an incident where Lucas’s car was vandalized and his rear window smashed out! Not a single one of those was what can be considered a negative or derogatory incident.  An example of one incident where a call was made was when Lucas was in his OCSO cadet uniform and carrying a bag of police training gear across campus to his communications class where he was giving a speech in law enforcement methods. The call was made as soon as he exited his dorm. The police were apparently told by the caller that they felt threatened by seeing Lucas when they saw him carrying riot gear. Note that LSSU is a school where a large majority of students are Criminal Justice majors! But Sault St. Marie police officers actually responded and pulled Lucas out of the classroom WHILE HE WAS GIVING HIS SPEECH to question him. His professor came out and told the officers that Lucas’s speech was pre-approved as well as the props he brought. The report noted that his explanation was accepted and no further action taken. I might add that every other time something like this happened, the result was the same. No action taken, either from Law Enforcement nor the College. The level of harassment Lucas endured there was astonishing.”

Lucas’s real crime was being an unashamed conservative college student.

The story we are about to tell you is truly one of the most remarkable cases of injustice you will ever read. It’s a story of how easily two intolerant, liberal students, with the help of the police, school administrators, and an overly zealous prosecutor, can cancel the life of a young man, all while trampling on his First and Second Amendment Rights.

Incredibly, unbelievably enough, that’s only the beginning of this bona fide horrorshow. It gets even worse.

Anybody out there whose initial response was to mutter something along the lines of “can’t happen here” is hereby strongly advised to wake the fuck up and smell what the Wokester commie ratbags are cooking. STRONGLY. Read the rest, if you can stand to. Mention is made of “making the snowflakes melt,” although Lucas was careful to aver to Johnny Law that it was actually “a reference to liberals whose brains ‘melt’ when faced with something or someone who expresses an opposing political ideology.”

Let me be the first to fling caution to the winds and state outright that it’s way past time some snowflakes were made to melt for real, physically and literally, by bringing the fires of Hell itself to bear on their sorry, smarmy asses. Before it’s too late, and they can no longer be stopped.

Totally, totally unacceptable, this is.

I will not comply

And you Vaxx Nazis can go fuck yourselves.

Bloomberg Columnist: We May Have To Force People To Get Vaccinated

You can try, certainly. Let’s see how that works out for you in the end.

So much for “my body, my choice.” The authoritarianism of Michael Bloomberg and his flunkies is on full display in a new column at the anti-gun billionaire’s personal news network, where columnist Clara Ferreira Marques argues that personal choice and responsibility should take a back seat to government coercion and brute force when it comes to vaccines.

Sticking a needle in people’s arms against their will may be “unpalatable,” says Marques, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t happen if large numbers of Americans refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine on their own.

Full compulsion — which implies fines or even prison, as opposed to simply not getting a benefit or public service — isn’t easily embraced. For me, that’s less because of arguments around personal liberty than because of the deep polarization in many societies, including the U.S., that would only worsen with such an approach. More importantly, some reasons deterring people from vaccinations — distrust of health or political authorities, or more pressing medical or shelter problems — deserve to be tackled, not papered over.

Why am I not shocked that the argument around personal liberty isn’t compelling to a Bloomberg lackey like Marques?

Seeing as how the authoritarian Left is not only indifferent to personal liberty but actively, virulently hostile to it, how shocked could anybody be? JD Rucker calls it a cult.

The mentality surrounding the Covid-19 vaccines is unlike anything we’ve ever seen. On one level, it’s easy to understand why people would be willing to do just about anything to relieve their fear, financial distress, emotional hardships, and longing for normalcy. On the other hand, why are so many who claim to “follow the science” willing to ignore the science behind these injections?

What we’re seeing is the rise of the Vaccine Cultists. They have made it part of their daily lives to “do their part” in making sure every human being on the planet is injected with a Covid-19 vaccine of some sort. From their perspective, it’s all about making it ubiquitous.

Let’s make a clear delineation between “Vaccine Cultists” and basic pro-vaxxers. If you got your shots and you’re going about your business feeling secure that you’re protected, not worrying about whether others around you are also vaccinated, you’re just a basic pro-vaxxer and while I disagree with your choice, I hold no ill feelings towards you.

If you’re out there promoting the vaccines, begging or demanding friends and family get theirs, asking people who are in close proximity to you if they’ve been vaccinated, calling on your workplace to mandate vaccines, going on social media to attack Covid-vaccine-skeptics, or getting tattoos to commemorate your inoculation date, then you’re a Vaccine Cultist.

To be clear, I’m not an anti-vaxxer per se. I believe in the science behind vaccines and while I’ve chosen to generally avoid them, you won’t find me out there saying much about it before 2021. I’ve always been a vaccine-freedom guy. If you want your vaccine, take your vaccine. If you don’t want it, don’t take it. But the rise of the massive propaganda campaign to get as many people injected as possible combined with the inception of the Vaccine Cult have turned me into a vocal opponent of the Covid vaccines altogether. As many have tried to say repeatedly, these “vaccines” are completely different from anything that has ever been mass distributed in the world. Dr. Sherri Tenpenny lambasted me for calling them “vaccines” at all, and she’s right. They’re simply not, though Merriam-Webster Dictionary tried hard to make them so.

I’m also not one who thinks Covid-19 is just a bad flu. I do believe it is very dangerous for the elderly and those with major health issues. I also know that there are otherwise healthy people who were hit hard by Covid-19; my kid’s doctor said he felt like a freight train hit him for a week. I do not downplay the disease other than to note that for children and young adults, the chances of it being fatal are minimal.

JD goes quite a bit further out of his way than I consider absolutely necessary in order to present his thoughts in a calm, reasonable fashion. For my own part, I ain’t gonna bother. It’s like this:

Never

Just you come and get me, you filthy bastards—if you think you’re big enough, and can round up enough help. I solemnly promise you that I won’t be taken down easily…and that I DO NOT consider violent resistance to be off the table.

Update! Only just saw that I forgot to include a link to the JD Rucker piece, which can be found here. Apologies to all for the omission.

A virus of the mind

Doc Z explains why Zombie Communism won’t ever just lie down and stay dead.

Conservatives of my generation made the terrible mistake of believing Marxism was fatally discredited with the fall of the Soviet Union, and only a few aging freaks in campus faculty still took it seriously. We weren’t ready for the next wave of the mind-virus and its variants.

It was an easy mistake to make. How could people cling to an ideology that spread death, poverty, and failure around the world, once its primary nation-state supporter lay in ruins – its claims of success across the decades exposed as lies, its victims celebrating their freedom?

How could so many people ignore the hideous history of Marxism and continue to believe THIS time it will work, THIS time all the bugs have been ironed out, THIS time the right people are finally in charge? Forgive my generation for thinking the horror was finally over.

Marxism persists because it IS a virus. It was designed that way – give the old devil and his disciples credit for being ahead of the curve in realizing that an ideology could be custom-tailored to propagate itself endlessly, without needing any nourishment from success.

Every single aspect of Marxist theory is designed to protect and perpetuate the ideology no matter how badly it fails, most notably including the elements of every Marxist ideology that justify the use of violence against those who threaten it, or refuse to submit to its demands.

An ideology that asserts dissent from its principles in good faith is impossible – making dissent a sin punishable by loss of rights, confiscation of property, imprisonment, torture, or death – is well on its way to insulating itself against any degree of objective failure.

The most viral element of Marxism, the DNA that carries over into all its mutations, is the elimination of individual responsibility – the promise of “justice” and “entitlement” achieved through collective power. Every strain of Marxism tells adherents they have been exploited.

This is reflected in the core economic assumption of Marxism: capitalism “exploits” workers and “steals” the value of their labor. All of Marxism’s misery and bloody horror, all of the failure and brutal civil warfare it spreads through societies it infects, flows from this idea.

Never again should any defender of freedom underestimate the seductive viral appeal of these ideas, especially to young minds. Marxism is a vision of society run like a big family. It appeals to kids from good families…and those who desperately WISH they had good families.

Marxism flatters envy and transforms it into a virtue. It offers a regimented vision of society that appears logical once its (entirely false) basic premises are accepted. It claims to makes sense of a senseless and unjust world – very appealing to the young and alienated.

Most importantly, Marxism lifts the burden of individual responsibility from its acolytes. “Socializing” costs and consequences, classifying all misfortune as “exploitation,” dividing people into static classes at war with each other – it all says nothing is YOUR fault.

Every strain of Marxism tells its victims that they can never hope to find success, fairness, justice, equity – whatever euphemism becomes fashionable after the old ones wear out – on their own.

Gee, sounds exactly like what Democrat-Socialists have told American Nigras for years and years now, so as to keep them forever on the Donk plantation, almost word for word. Pure coinkydink, I’m guessing.

But I must remind one and all that, contra the general assumption, Marxism has NOT “failed every time it’s been tried.” Sure, it hasn’t worked—CANNOT work—according to the usual definition for the word. But as Hayward’s essay tacitly confirms, that’s predicated on a premise that is false. As I argued the other night, our metric for what constitutes success and failure must be recalibrated, putting ourselves back in line with the stark reality that Marxism has enjoyed an unbroken string of successes when it comes to realizing the true goals of the despots who implement and then rule under it. I repeat: it all depends on what the meaning of “success” is.

Had enough of them yet?

FOAD, you corrupt, lying, kiddie-diddling, senile old rapist.

Speaking from the Rose Garden today at the White House, President Joe Biden celebrated the new guidelines issued by the CDC lifting mask requirements for people who are fully vaccinated, crediting his administration’s vaccination program with dramatically reducing the impact of the coronavirus.

Biden declared, “The rule is very simple: get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do. The choice is yours,” later tweeting out these words as well.

Izzat so, NotMyPresident Gropey? Well, here’s a counteroffer for you.

I:

  • WILL do exactly as I please, as usual, without reference to or regard for your own opinion or preferences
  • WILL NOT be wearing a fucking mask
  • WILL go wherever I want, whenever I want
  • WILL NOT allow myself to be shot up with your precious “vaccine,” under any circumstances whatsoever
  • WILL ignore all edicts, decrees, commands, and imperatives from the likes of you
  • WILL ridicule you; defy you; oppose and/or undermine you, your minions, and all your works; and hold you in profoundest contempt till my dying breath

YOU:

  • WILL NOT be able to successfully and safely negotiate a short flight of stairs
  • WILL babble incomprehensibly into the microphone the second the drugs begin to wear off
  • WILL NOT be entirely sure of who you are, where you are, and what you’re doing ever again, for the rest of your miserable life
  • WILL forever remain not—as you may flatter yourself in your increasingly-few lucid moments—”the leader of the free world,” but an international laughingstock, butt of jokes and object of scorn and ridicule among your fellow bottom-feeders, rumpswabs, and parasites
  • WILL NOT enjoy a moment’s respect, deference, or obedience from me—ever
  • WILL continue to publicly beclown yourself on a daily basis

So howzabout it there, Gropester? We got ourselves a deal here or what? In the event that we do not, please feel free to go piss up a rope.

“The rule is.” My GOD, the balls on these slimewads.

Fairy tales & necessary illusions

People who aren’t looking will never see.

“Land of the free, home of the brave.”

“The Constitution ensures Americans receive due process.”

“Equal justice under the law is a hallmark of the American justice system.”

“We have a government restrained by checks and balances.”

“They hate us for our freedoms.”

“If I put my tooth under my pillow, the tooth fairy will come and exchange it for a dollar bill.”

By now most Americans, minus perpetually ignorant boomers and five-year-olds, know the above statements are fairy tales. Not necessarily on the level of Grimm’s scary nightmare tales, more like big white lies and obsolete constructs repeated in unison by propagandists in order to make us feel good so we don’t ask too many questions.

In the information security business, there is a saying that security by obscurity is no security at all—meaning hiding from hackers is not a winning security strategy. The parallel to this in politics is anonymity is freedom. In other words, I am free as long as the tyrant doesn’t know I exist.

The reality, however, is one can never get small enough or anonymous enough to be free from evil when evil rules the land. Freedom through anonymity is not real freedom—it’s merely an illusion. Illusions are the bread and butter of the tyrant—for if the masses knew the truth they would be ungovernable and the tyrant’s life would be, in Hobbesian terms, a nasty, brutish, and short affair. Because of this, the tyrant strives to keep the necessary illusions alive in the minds of the common people. One of the biggest illusions traditional America clings to right now is that it still retains constitutional rights recognized and respected by its government in Washington, D.C.

In the 1989 classic sports fantasy movie “Field of Dreams,” Kevin Costner’s character, an Iowa corn farmer, repeatedly hears a voice whispering “If you build it, they will come,”—“it” being a baseball diamond.  So, despite the craziness of the idea, Costner plows under a portion of his corn crop and builds a baseball field and—long story short—a bunch of old-time baseball heroes show up and play a game . . . his farm is saved from foreclosure, families are reunited, and happy endings all around.

We all like stories with happy endings, but someone, or rather some people, applied the mantra “if you build it, they will come” to the wrong dream. They decided to build the infrastructure of a tyranny—and voilà, guess who showed up? Tyrants.

The following section opens with a truly succulent line—”Enter the shitshow that was the George W. Bush Administration”—before moving on to a chilling examination of a quiet Bush-admin rule change that basically grants the FBI complete carte blanche to launch open-ended, unrestrained investigations into any American they want, with neither accountability nor Congressional oversight, predicated on…well, on nothing whatsoever.

Trust me: as cynical as you may think you already are about the FBI, you ain’t anywhere NEAR cynical enough. It all comes down to this.

Right now, traditional Americans are under attack by a ruling elite empowered by the weaponized institutions of justice in America. We are accused of being extremists, terrorists, racists, and white supremacists—all without a shred of actual evidence. Like Kafka’s The Trial, our denials are considered evidence of our crimes. In reality, all of this is merely an attempt to intimidate the elite’s political opposition. Their goal is to silence traditional America as they take control of our once free and independent nation in order to pursue the objectives of an unaccountable oligarchy. Make no mistake, the elites are shouting the command “submit” and preparing to force us into acquiescing to our own destruction.

Traditional Americans should consider the consequences of what is coming. If an FBI agent approaches your employer and claims you are a potential violent extremist, how do you think your employer will react? Do you think you will still have a job at the end of the week? What about your neighbors? If an FBI agent makes the rounds in your neighborhood and inquiries about your alleged extremist proclivities, do you think your neighbors will still invite you over for the 4th of July BBQ? What happens when the FBI recruits your neighbors or your children’s teachers as informants? What happens when they park an obvious surveillance element outside your house 24/7 for everyone, including you, to see? How can you defend yourself from what is effectively a whisper campaign, the sole purpose of which is to destroy your life and make an example of you for other Americans to see?

When government agents can circumvent your due process rights without any legal predicate, you are no longer a free citizen; you are a subject in a tyranny. Traditional Americans need to understand that this is the case right now. You may believe you are free because you are still relatively anonymous to the tyrant, and that is likely true, right up until the point it isn’t.

Thankfully, this time Morton resists the temptation to lapse into any of the “Vote harderer!” folly he’s succumbed to in some of his previous outings. Maybe, having manfully faced up to the grim facts of life in Amerika v2.0 in the year of our Lord 2021 AD, it’s finally dawned on him how very little “elections” actually amount to under the sway of illegitimate, systemically corrupt, tyrannical regimes.

Thought exercise

I’ve said I’m all done with 2020 election fantasizing, and I meant it too. However, this one’s opening gambit is amusing enough to make an exception for.

Let me put this in terms even Democrats can understand.

Let’s say a white police officer killed a black man who did nothing wrong. Unlike George Floyd, this man had not committed any crime, did not resist arrest, didn’t have fentanyl in his system and had no record of violent crime. Assume this poor guy was a law-abiding, taxpaying, churchgoing American and that the cop killed him for the crime of “driving while black.”

How do the police react? They say the shooting was righteous. They refuse to investigate. There is bodycam footage, but they refuse to release it. And get this: They refuse to allow anyone to even talk about it. If any cop talks about it, he loses his job. If anyone in the black community talks about it, social media will suspend them or ban them for life.

What would all of that mean to you? Guilty as charged, right? The police must be covering up a crime. No one who’s innocent acts like that, right?

Guess what? That’s equivalent to the reaction (or, should I say, overreaction) of liberals, Democrats and assorted socialists and communists when Republicans make accusations of massive voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

I thought we’re all allowed to have our opinion in America. I thought we have free speech. I thought we have a right to investigate. I thought we have a right to see the videotapes. I thought we have a right to forensic audits.

I was wrong.

Indeed you were, even more so than you may realize. See, your mistake wasn’t in thinking that free speech, free thought, and all the rest were “allowed” in America; in fact, they were. Your mistake was in clinging to the now-defunct belief that this is still America. All available evidence confirms that the country we now live in is nothing of the sort. Once you get your head around that ugly reality, everything begins to come clear. Adjust your attitude and behavior accordingly.

Boot on our necks, forever amen

I take no pleasure in saying this, believe me I don’t, but…told ya so.

Remember when Dr. Fauci said masks don’t work?

Now Fauci is suggesting mask-wearing will become permanent.

Fauci appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday and told host Chuck Todd that thanks to mask-wearing, the seasonal flu was pretty much non-existent this year.

The seasonal flu was just recoded into Covid so medical facilities can make more money, but Fauci gets paid big bucks to lie and push CCP propaganda so here we are.

“We’ve had practically a non-existent flu season this year merely because people were doing the kinds of public health things that were directed predominantly against COVID-19,” Fauci said with a straight face.

“So it is conceivable that as we go on, a year or two or more from now, that during certain seasonal periods when you have respiratory-borne viruses like the flu, people might actually elect to wear masks to diminish the likelihood that you’ll spread these respiratory-borne diseases,” Fauci added.

The Covid tyranny stops when we say it stops.

Well, perhaps. Then again, perhaps not. The trouble is, we now have a tremendous portion of the population who has been thoroughly conditioned and have now been broken in the same sense wild horses are. “Americans” have accepted the bit; they’re more inclined to cowardice and submission than to sturdy self-determination in the first place, and will not only be perfectly fine with making the Mask Of Submission a permanent fixture of Amerikan life, they will vehemently insist on it. You can be sure that the Fauxvid panic-ninnies will raise eight flavors of ruckus should it not be made so, and will continue on shamelessly hectoring and harassing those who refuse to comply.

There was a time when I myself regularly echoed Laila’s line that it “stops when we say it stops.” With every passing day, though, it becomes more apparent that relatively passive resistance isn’t going to suffice to free us unless and until physical violence, up close and personal, becomes part of the equation. Maybe those Karens and Kens would relent if they suddenly found themselves on the hurty end of a knuckle sandwich every time they opened their smarmy yaps to start in on some poor schlub possessed of the outrageous temerity to insist on living as if this was still a free country or something.

The grand experiment in authoritarianism facilitated by hysterical panic over a decidedly unexceptional flu bug turned out to be successful beyond a wannabe despot’s wildest dreams. All the puzzle pieces for perpetual tyranny are now firmly in place, which means more extreme measures will be required if it is ever to be disassembled and put back in its proper box. As in so very many other contexts, by putting off a reckoning instead of facing reality and just getting on with it, we have only made our struggle more difficult than it might have been. Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt; it’s also an invitation no tyrant will ever refuse—a wide-open door that they will forever be happy to walk through and make themselves right at home.

Update! Give ’em an inch, and they’ll take…absolutely everything.

So spare me the tired and easily refuted claim that our current situation is simply a scientific response to a dangerous disease. Similar responses to dangerous situations would never be accepted, and would trigger immediate and appropriate legal responses. Just imagine if Fredo The Elder (Andrew Cuomo) announced that until the murder rate in the worst precincts in NYC dropped to the background level of the rest of the country, all people above a certain age were subject to search for weapons. Or that policemen would be posted in every supermarket to search all morbidly overweight people for prohibited foods.

Those are ridiculous and unacceptable examples of government overreach, yet we are currently tolerating similar insults to our rights, and looming on the horizon are even more insidious measures. Vaccine passports, segregation of the vaccinated from the unvaccinated, and many more degradations of our rights as free people are coming, and soon.

How different is a vaccine passport compared to the yellow star of Nazi Germany, or a letter from the Red Guards allowing travel to the cities, or an ID card allowing one entrance into a communist party food store in Moscow?

The advent of incredibly fast computers, completely interconnected, and vast databases that can be accessed from literally anywhere with a cellular connection makes the Nazis and the Soviets and the Chinese communists mere dilettantes compared to the current surveillance state.

Papers could be forged…badges could be manufactured…the authorities could be evaded (at least for a time). But how many of us have the technical knowledge and skills to evade a vaccine passport requirement? Or avoid being tracked with our cell phones and internet log-ons and electronic toll systems and credit cards and facial recognition systems and license plate readers and on and on and on.

We are in the midst of a profound shift to authoritarian rule, but this time the tools available to those in power are orders of magnitude more powerful than even the infamous East German Ministry For State Security had!

The dystopian novels of the past predicted exactly this, but they were warnings…and we ignored them.

Oh, we’re hardly “in the midst” of said profound shift, I’d say. What we’re in now is the final stage of it, when the cleaning crew comes in to sweep up whatever’s left of American liberty before its light is extinguished for the long, dark night.

The “cure” is worse than the disease

Reducing the surplus population.

How many Americans have died after taking the COVID vaccines? Not Americans who’ve been killed by the virus, that’s a huge number, but how many Americans have died after getting the vaccines designed to prevent the virus? Do you know the answer to that question? Do you know anything about the downside?

Every flu season, we give influenza shots to more than 160 million Americans. Every year, a relatively small number of people seem to die after getting those shots. To be precise, in 2019, that number was 203 people. The year before, it was 119. In 2017, a total of 85 people died from the flu shot.

Every death is tragic, but big picture, we don’t consider those numbers disqualifying. We keep giving flu shots, and very few people complain about it. So the question is how do those numbers compare to the death rate from the coronavirus vaccines now being distributed across the country? That’s worth knowing.

We checked today. Here’s the answer, which comes from the same set of government numbers that we just listed: Between late December of 2020, and last month, a total of 3,362 people apparently died after getting the COVID vaccines in the United States. Three thousand, three hundred and sixty-two — that’s an average of 30 people every day. So, what does that add up to?

By the way, that reporting period ended on April 23. We don’t have numbers past that, we’re not quite up to date. But we can assume that another 360 people have died in the 12 days since. That is a total of 3,722 deaths. Almost four thousand people died after getting the COVID vaccines. The actual number is almost certainly much higher than that — perhaps vastly higher.

The data we just cited come from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System — VAERS — which is managed by the CDC and the FDA. VARES has received a lot of criticism over the years, some of it founded. Some critics have argued for a long time that VARES undercounts vaccine injuries.

A report submitted to the Department of Health and Human Services in 2010 concluded that “fewer than one percent of vaccine adverse events are reported” by the VAERS system. Fewer than one percent. So what is the real number of people who apparently have been killed or injured by the vaccine?

As with the number of people snuffed by Communist regimes, we’ll almost certainly never know for sure. Coincidentally, I ran across an article months ago detailing the sheer uselessness of the VARES site, and even considered doing a post on it at the time but never bothered. To me, the story was just another data point in confirmation of FederalGovCo incompetence and unreliability. There are always more of those than I’ll ever have time to get around to, and there always will be.

In just the first four months of this year, the U.S. government has recorded more deaths after COVID vaccinations than from all other vaccines administered in the United States between mid-1997 and the end of 2013. That’s a period of fifteen and a half years.

Again, more people, according to VAERS, have died after getting the shot in four months during a single vaccination campaign than from all other vaccines combined over more than a decade and a half. Chart that out. It’s a stunning picture. Now, the debate is over what it means.

And, again, the VAERS tally represents a miniscule fraction of the actual deaths, maybe as few as less than one percent of them—by HHS’s own estimation.

We spoke to one physician today who actively treats COVID patients. He described what we’re seeing now as the single deadliest mass-vaccination event in modern history. Whatever is causing it, it is happening as we speak. So you’d think someone in authority might want to know what’s going on.

Are we really all that sure that they don’t? The only thing we can be certain of is that—whatever the truth might be, whatever the topic or issue at hand—they don’t want us to know, and will go to extreme lengths to keep us from finding out.

Vaccines are complicated medicines, and as with any drug, it can take a long time to get it precisely right. The dosage, for example. And this is not the first time people have been hurt during a vaccination campaign. That is bound to happen. What’s different this time, and so striking, is the reaction to these numbers.

Here’s a contrast for you: in 1976, the U.S. government vaccinated 45 million people with a vaccine for the swine flu. Fifty-three people reportedly died after getting that shot. The U.S. government immediately halted the vaccination program. Authorities decided it was too risky, it wasn’t worth it.

Contrast that with what is happening now. This time, our health authorities have reserved their energy for anyone who dares to question vaccines. LifeSiteNews, a nonprofit news organization, just found itself permanently banned from Facebook. Why? Because it reported government numbers from the VAERS database.

The difference is easy enough to explain: as I’ve maintained from the start, this is not about a virus. It never was. Leaving the endlessly-extended lockdowns; the manufactured mass panic; the baldfaced lies and ever-shifting goalposts; and all the rest of this balderdash out of it, the government’s frenzied campaign demanding that you GET YOUR SHOT!™ ought to arouse suspicion in any informed American about what’s really going on here, what our masters’ real objective might be, all by itself.

There’s a reason many states have more vaccine doses than they can use. Some people just don’t want the vaccine. That’s their right. Period. Not all of them are crazy. Health decisions used to be considered personal choices. We didn’t ask about them. They were considered personal as recently as last fall. In September of 2020, at the height of the presidential campaign, a CNN reporter asked Kamala Harris whether she’d be willing to take the coronavirus vaccine once it became available.

“Well, I think that’s going to be an issue for all of us,” Harris responded. “I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump.” A month later, at the vice presidential debate, Harris was if anything more emphatic on the subject. “If Donald Trump tells us we should take” the vaccine, she declared, “I’m not going to take it.”

Kamala Harris has, of course, since changed her mind. She’s no longer skeptical of the vaccine, nor does she tolerate the skepticism of others. Instead, she’s an enthusiastic participant in COVID theater.

Annnnd bingo. COVID theater is exactly what this is, what it has been all along.

Before you join the Vaccination Stampede and succumb to being injected with…with…with whatever the hell this concoction actually is, you should ask yourself: do I really trust this government this much? If—after the dishonesty, the deception, the endemic corruption and criminality we’ve all witnessed from government—you can still somehow answer yes to that burning question, then you just march yourself right on in and get yourself jabbed, and best of luck to you with it.

Should you be one of the lucky survivors, don’t be alarmed if you feel a sudden uncontrollable urge to open your mouth and go “BAAAAAH!” every now and then. I hear that’s one of the known side effects of this “vaccine,” and nothing to be concerned about.

An old story

VERY old—2500 years, at the very least.

The vulnerability of political freedom and popular sovereignty to tyranny has been a constant theme in political philosophy for 2500 years. It profoundly influenced the creators of the Constitution, an important purpose of which is to forestall the tyranny that destroys political freedom and citizen rule. In the writings of Classical philosophers and historians the Founders could see the blueprint for such a tyranny––one we have seen unfolding in the last few decades, and accelerating in the policies of the current administration.

The Greek historian Polybius in the second century B.C. laid out how a democracy degenerates into tyranny:

So when [the rich] begin to hanker after office, and find that they cannot achieve it through their own efforts or on their merits, they begin to seduce and corrupt the people in every possible way, and thus ruin their estates. The result is that through their senseless craving for prominence they stimulate among the masses both an appetite for bribes and the habit of receiving them, and then the rule of democracy is transformed into government by violence and strong-arm methods. By this time the people have become accustomed to feed at the expense of others, and their prospects of winning a livelihood depend upon the property of their neighbors, and as soon as they find a leader who is sufficiently ambitious and daring…they introduce a regime based on violence.

Many of these preconditions already exist in our country. 

A litany of specifics follows, all of which will no doubt be familiar to CF Lifers, before the piece closes out with the part I really wanted to get to:

Finally, Polybius’ link of tyrannic ambition to mediocre politicians who “hanker after office, and find that they cannot achieve it through their own efforts or on their merits,” describes Biden to a T. Biden is a long-time senator with few legislative achievements he still will own, a vicious pit-bull on the Senate Judiciary Committee where he shamelessly demagogued Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas, a plagiarizer and unseemly harasser of women, a two-time loser in his bid for the presidency, a fabulist and grifter who monetized the office of Vice President to enrich his family, and a lightweight so light that his own boss, Barack Obama, said, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up.” Only a pandemic, disruptive lock-downs, and the Democrat primary threat of socialist Bernie Sanders––along with a probably fraudulent election, and a groveling media running interference–– could get such a meritless mediocrity into the Oval Office.

It made me giggle a little, seeing those one-hundred-percent-true-and-accurate characterizations all gathered together in one convenient paragraph. How bizarre that the wholly lackluster, unpleasant, and talentless C-list actor Biden had been stalled in the role of The Guy Nobody Wanted for so many years, only to suddenly find himself recast by the producers of the show as The Guy Everybody Would Accept just as the final curtain was falling.

An oligarchy, if you can keep it

Not sure why anybody would want to.

What are hundreds of America’s biggest corporations doing as they browbeat the public to abolish the requirement of identification for voting? What are Twitter, Facebook, et al. doing when they prohibit people from sharing facts that are inconvenient to government policy or (and) the Democratic Party? What did banks do when they turned over to the FBI the records of persons who happened to have traveled to D.C. near January 6? And what about all those big retail stores—you know, the ones that the government designated “essential,” the ones that thrived under the lockdowns—what are they doing when they continue to demand that you wear masks on their property regardless of vaccination? What are colleges and universities, even K-12 schools doing when they deprive of opportunities young people who do not fit woke profiles? And what do all of them do when they dismiss complaints that they are violating your Constitutional rights by telling you that they are exercising their own private rights?

Are they simply fronting for the government or, specifically, for the Democratic Party?

Wait, you’re telling me there’s a difference?

Understanding what is happening in America begins with dismissing such silly questions. Focus, instead, on the fact that those who rule us in all these matters are essentially the same people. They are interchangeable, with near-identical interests, loves, hates, and tastes. Often, they are friends and colleagues, and are united about coercing whomever is not on their own sociopolitical side. Whether the institutions they control are public or private under our Constitutional system has ceased to matter. These persons are responsible for the sharp diminution in all manner of freedoms we have experienced since at least 2016, and especially since 2020.

Americans struggle to understand what is happening because we still regard ourselves as citizens, and imagine that those who run our republican institutions still respect them to some extent. We see persons whom the ruling class favors committing crimes with impunity, and complain of “a two-tiered justice system.” But this is not mere corruption. We see corporations wielding government powers and complain that power is being franchised to favorites. But these are not mere favorites of the regime. This is the new regime being itself. Such things are not deviations from republican legality. They are the assertion of oligarchic reality. This is oligarchic justice, oligarchic normality. The republic was yesterday. The oligarchy is today.

Conservatives’ congenital mistake is to try conserving something that no longer exists by supporting institutions that now belong to a regime so alien to republican life that it treats attempts at citizenship as crimes against the regime. And so they are. They call today’s American regime “our democracy.” It is “theirs,” all right, but not ours. It is a classic oligarchy.

I must admit that I’m constantly guilty myself of a classification error when it comes to what specific flavor of tyranny we’re now being strangled by, usually referring to it as Marxist, socialist, Communist, what have you—perhaps for convenience’s sake, or out of laziness, or just force of habit. As with the increasingly meaningless Left-Right dichotomy, everyone knows what I mean by it, so there’s no real harm done. Nonetheless, it’s linguistically and conceptually sloppy, a fact I’m well aware of. In truth, the most accurate name for Amerika v2.0’s current system would have to be fascism.

Oligarchy also meets the case well enough, being more or less a sub-branch of fascism itself, so I have no bone to pick with Codevilla to this point. But I’m about to.

What’s an Ex-citizen To Do?
First, stop pretending. Begin by rejecting—in heart and mind entirely, and publicly as prudence may dictate—the authority of the oligarchs who now control what used to be our republican institutions. Realize that you enjoy the rights God gave you only to the extent that your fellow ex-citizens recognize them, and that your only hope of continuing enjoyment lies in leaguing with them, on turning your back on the oligarchy and on effectively living republican lives with similarly minded people.

Citizenship is possible only when the many join together in the kind of mixed regime for the general good that our oligarchs rejected. Turning our backs to the oligarchy is possible for the twin purpose of rejecting un-republican rule and as the assertion of a new republican way of life. Citizenship happens when individuals join together under leaders of their choice to achieve common goals, both positive and negative.

Rejection of oligarchy is possible, even easy, if and when large numbers of persons do it together.

“Easy”? Oh, sure…right up until the moment forty masked FBI goons in full battle-rattle kick in your door in the wee hours of the night, then proceed to haul you and yours off to the Googlag™ for a lengthy stretch of retributive “justice” for your willful nonconformity. “Rejection of oligarchy” suddenly gets a lot tougher then.

Our oligarchs, having seen how easy it was to cower the majority of Americans to agree to the stupid, self-destructive practices of mask-wearing and lockdowns, having rejoiced in ruining the lives of small numbers of individual dissenters, believing that, under the media’s cover, their threats to crush opponents as white supremacists will forestall serious resistance, fantasize about applying the tools of the war on terror to America’s population. 

But no. Their success was due to what remained of the American people’s confidence in them. That is now gone. The oligarchs have the FBI and CIA, and the Pentagon’s generals. But who will risk his pension, never mind his life, for them? Who will risk anything for Kamala Harris, never mind Joseph Biden?

Wrong question, Angelo. The one we should be asking is: who will dare to risk his freedom, his financial well-being, and even his very life to defy them?

Biden and his Deep State puppeteers know that their success is due not to the American people’s—or anybody else’s—confidence or trust, and they’re not troubled in the least by it. Their contempt for the Slave Class is deep enough that our masters are perfectly fine with a continued grip on unlimited power based entirely on intimidation, oppression, and fear instead.

Political-prison nation

Filling up the Amerikan gulag, one patriot at a time.

So somebody at the FBI made the decision to send in 6 or 7 SUVs on a military-style operation to go get *one guy* who they had already interviewed. Like he was some dangerous terrorist who had taken a bunch of orphans hostage and was threatening to flood the neighborhood with nerve gas if his demands weren’t met. One guy. This is abuse of power on a staggering scale, and what disgusts me the most about it is that no one will ever be held accountable for it. They’re going to get away with it. Any attempt at remediation will be rebuffed. Lawsuits will be dismissed, and appeals will be denied.

And what are they going to get out of this massive display of force against an American citizen?

For his participation in the U.S. Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, he was charged with entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, knowingly impeding or disrupting the orderly conduct of government business, knowingly engaging in any act of physical violence against a person or property in any restricted building or grounds, using or carrying a deadly or dangerous weapon in relation to his violations and willfully and knowingly uttering loud, threatening or abusive language or engaging in disorderly conduct at any place in the grounds or in any U.S. Capitol buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt or disturb the session of Congress or either House of Congress.

Wading though all that verbiage, it reads like a middle schooler padding out an English essay until he can get to the 500-word minimum required by the assignment so he can go play Call of Duty on his X-Box, i.e. it’s mostly bullshit. I notice that what’s not included here is “sedition” which is what Biden administration goon Michael Sherwin bragged on ’60 Minutes’ that he was going to be charging the Jan. 6th trespassers.

I think most of this is going to be dismissed. Lefties will be howling as more dismissals pile up, but that’s not the point. The point is to intimidate, not convict. Oh, convictions are fine, and they’ll take them if they can get them, but they’re not really necessary. The point is that the Biden administration is in the process of criminalizing any form of dissent. The point is to cause normal Americans to think twice before speaking up. The point is to make Americans feel that there is a target on their back, or will be if they step out of line. Nobody wants to have the FBI show up in force at their door at 4 AM. Just ask Roger Stone. Nobody wants to languish in a solitary confinement in a Washington DC jail for months, with no trial date set, as a number of Jan. 6th protestors are. They had to release some of them pending trial, but many are still held.

Anybody remember Brandon Straka? He’s the guy that started the “Walkaway” movement of ex-Democrats driven away by the insanity of their own party. He helped organize the Jan. 6th protests and he’s just disappeared. He was arrested in late January and I can find nothing on the internet about him past Jan. 26th. I guess he’s in jail in DC, but it would be nice to know what’s happened to him. He has been effectively silenced.

With all of these actions, the Biden administration has all but come out and stated that their chief enemy is not Russia, or China, or any foreign power, but rather American citizens who disagree with them. I’ve never seen anything like this before in my life.

Oh, yes you have. You just never saw it here, and never thought you would. None of us did, really. But, well…here we all are.

As noted earlier in Gorillapundit’s missive, Chris Worrell had not only already been interviewed and clearly was no threat; he had, in fact, “been cooperating with the FBI for two months.” As for Straka, it would come as no surprise whatever to me if he’s never heard from again; chances are he’s already dead.

But this is how dictatorships operate, just business as usual for the kind of government we’re ruled by now. The eternal, now-burning question still hangs before us: what, if anything, are Real Americans going to do about it?

The future is now

Contra Tom Wolfe’s well-known witticism, looks like the dark night of fascism finally DID land here after all.

In America, people who committed a misdemeanor by entering the Capitol without permission are still rotting in jail in solitary confinement without ever having had a hearing. The situation is so dire and un-American that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Dick Durbin, both proponents of total government, protested:

Most of the 300-plus people charged with participating in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot have been released while they await trial, but dozens of those deemed to be dangerous, flight risks or at high risk of obstructing justice were ordered held without bond. D.C. jail officials later determined that all Capitol detainees would be placed in so-called restrictive housing — a move billed as necessary to keep the defendants safe, as well as guards and other inmates. But that means 23-hour-a-day isolation for the accused, even before their trials begin.

And such treatment doesn’t sit well with Warren or Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), two of the chamber’s fiercest critics of solitary confinement.

“Solitary confinement is a form of punishment that is cruel and psychologically damaging,” Warren said in an interview. “And we’re talking about people who haven’t been convicted of anything yet.”

Shocking, certainly, considering the source. But hey, when you’re right, you’re right. Further evidence abounds:

On Wednesday, federal agents flashing open-ended warrants conducted a 6 A.M. raid on former New York mayor and current Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani to seize his electronics. The ostensible reason was that Giuliani violated a law requiring Americans who represent foreign nationals to register as foreign agents. This is a law that is enforced only against Republicans close to Trump — and Giuliani is adamant that he’s never represented foreign nationals.

The agents ostentatiously refused to seize copies of Hunter Biden’s hard drives, which Giuliani possessed, even though they were obvious electronic devices. Giuliani contends that the hard drives’ contents establish not only that Hunter and Joe Biden acted as unregistered foreign agents, but also that Joe Biden and his family took millions in bribes over the years and that Hunter Biden was engaged in child pornography. Since Giuliani still has the hard drives, perhaps he should make all the information on the drives public.

On the evidence available, what’s happening to Giuliani looks like typical fascism: an incoming regime uses unequally applied law and a complete absence of due process to purge all political opposition.

And in the perfect public-private partnership that makes fascism a different kind of socialism from communism, the tech tyrants continue to act as the federal government’s censorship arm. 

At the end of the day, unless we want the dark night of fascism to become a permanent fixture in America, we’d better act to stop the Democrats from using the unequal application of our laws and the manufactured fear of COVID (a virus that more than 99% of us will have survived) to gain total power.

Problem is, there’s only one effective means of doing so at this late date—a fearful, desperate last resort which most Real Americans are understandably reluctant to embrace, and in no way guarantees anything other than horror and misery. Not condemning said reluctance, mind. But confronting certain unpleasant realities is much better than attempting to evade them. In fact, our national averting of the eyes, denial of harsh truths, and desire to postpone an inevitable reckoning is in large measure what brought us to this sorry pass in the first place.

No decent or rational person wants war, ever. Even so, just as history teaches that Communism has not, will not, and cannot work as advertised, it also offers another uncomfortable but essential lesson: those who think to avert war via disgraceful, dishonest, or self-deceptive measures often find themselves in a more protracted and terrible struggle than they might otherwise have faced.

Let the Thunder roll

Joe Bai-Deng’s Deep State handlers sure are some petty, spiteful little bitches, ain’t they?

The U.S. Department of Defense has denied a parking permit to the American Veterans or AmVets to stage a rallying point at the Pentagon ending a 32-year-old tradition on Memorial Day weekend for Rolling To Remember.

Now AmVets will try and secure RFK Stadium as an alternative staging area.

AmVets Executive Director Joe Chenelly tells the 7 News I-Team he received a call from the Pentagon Friday afternoon saying “A gentleman at the Pentagon told me that after careful consideration, our permit application was denied. He said considerations involved the continued spread of COVID-19 in the region and the nature of our event being that we are proposing a large gathering for an extended period of time.”

The Pentagon released a statement Friday night that read:

“Unfortunately, the department has disapproved AMVETS permit request. The department took into careful consideration all aspects of AMVETS request, to include the current Health Protection Condition status on the Pentagon Reservation; substantial community transmission of COVID-19 in Arlington County, Virginia; number of Americans fully vaccinated across the nation; nature of this event with its decreased ability to maintain physical distance; and large crowds in one location for an extended period of time. This event draws national attention and participation; therefore the risk of exposure from participants from other communities extends well beyond the National Capital Region.”

Yeh, yeh, yeh. Sundance puts paid to all that happy horseshit.

American flags, veterans, patriotism, pride in America, courage, pride, honor, strength…all the things represented by the motorcycle group known as “Rolling Thunder” who have traditionally rallied on Memorial Day in Washington DC. Unfortunately, all those adjectives are also things the intolerant leftists hate…So the Biden administration denies the group a parking permit.

And there’s the REAL reason. Toss in the fact that a large percentage of old-school scooter trash types are armed-forces vets themselves—genuine American fighting men, not the mincing transvestites of today—and that the Rally was originally conceived as a way for bikers to pay tribute to their fellow veterans as well as call attention to the POW/MIA cause, and it can’t be any real mystery why the illegitimate ruling junta would want to thumb the official nose at the annual rally.

Some years back in this space, I recall spitroasting a whiny column by some candypants shitlib whose name I don’t consider worth dredging up from faltering memory, complaining piteously about how badly his twee self had been frightened by the noise, crowds, and traffic caused by all those big, badass bikers motoring by. Evidently, Bai-Deng’s DoD femmes feel the exact same way about it.

Let me just check the ol’ Wayback Machine and see if I can maybe find…

And whaddya know. It was actually one of my Leatherballs columns for OB, not a regular old CF post. The AiQ (Asswipe in Question), unsurprisingly enough, turns out to have been the execrable Garrison Fucking Keillor, and here the piece t’is. If you don’t know just who and what Keillor is, you can learn all you’ll ever need to know about that, and probably more than you ever wanted to, at the link.

“Attack on our democracy”

There is one, it’s real, it’s ongoing, and it most certainly did NOT begin and/or end on January 6th.

Joe Biden is either an historical illiterate or a shameless liar. Perhaps he is both.

Definitely gotta go with “both” on that one, Jules.

Desperate to keep the disintegrating narrative about the events of January 6 alive, Biden, in his first sparsely attended speech to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night, declared the January 6 protest was “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”

Contra Supergenius Grampy Joe, it’s simplicity itself to make a case for the Great Lost Cause having been not so much an “attack on our democracy” as it was an attempt by the Confederacy to sever its bonds with what they perceived as a nascent Federal tyranny whose nakedly-hostile political leaders could be counted on to rule in a way calculated to inflict severe damage to the rights and best interests of a significant proportion of its subjects, as tyrannies tend to do. In fact, many if not most of the Confederacy’s best and brightest vigorously warned of precisely that.

Although it’s all but forgotten today, the Southern rebellion was predicated on several issues, slavery being but one of them: the assertion of a right to withdraw from a national Union which had originally been sold as an entirely voluntary association; the defense of the now-defunct ideal of States’ Rights; the threat posed to liberty and self-determination by an increasingly-muscular central government which would inevitably expand well beyond its Constitutional bounds, among others. In light of what we know now, it’s kinda tough to argue they were wrong, particularly about that last.

Whether you agree or not, in the eyes of a great many Confederates the Civil War was more like a last-ditch try at maintaining their own democracy, rather than an “attack” on somebody else’s.

I won’t bother going into the lopsided comparison between America’s military engagements since CW v1.0—the various Indian Wars, the Garza Revolution, the Spanish-American War, the Philippine-American War and Morro Rebellion, The Boxer War, the Samoan Civil War, the Occupation of Haiti and the Dominican Republic, etc etc—every one of which stacked up a FAR higher US body-count than the Jan 6th “insurrection’s” lone KIA.

EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

But, well, yeah. “Worst since the Civil War.” Whatevs, Mumbles. You just keep doin’ you, awright?

The “attack on our democracy” began last year and the facts aren’t in dispute. A new leader was chosen and installed by a self-serving cabal of powerful interests; no one even tries to hide it anymore. The “shadow campaign” to rig the 2020 election isn’t described as cheating or an actual “attack on our democracy” that seized control from tens of millions of voters but as a successful attempt to “save” the election.

Before and after the election, content that contradicted the ministers of propaganda was banned and its authors dispatched to an information Gulag. Comments about a stolen election are met with harsh rebukes and accusations of treason and sedition. Even worse, anyone involved in the January 6 protest who expressed that belief in social media posts or private messages is automatically guilty of a thought crime punishable by solitary confinement in a D.C. prison before a trial can begin.

First, Second, and Fourth Amendment rights do not apply to a select group of Americans. A top Justice
Department prosecutor bragged about authorizing nationwide manhunts and arrests in a display of “shock and awe,” not to round up real criminals but to silence and bully the political opposition.

No presumption of innocence, no due process.

The national news media fabricated a story about the untimely death of a police officer to help inflame the January 6 narrative. After the story was exposed as a lie, no one was punished. The claim made it into the Democrats’ impeachment trial memorandum, a document that will remain in the official record even though it is patently false.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi referred to January 6 as an “armed insurrection” the following day even though no “arms” were found inside the Capitol. The Director of National Intelligence, flagrantly violating her authority, referred to January 6 protesters as “domestic violent extremists” in a separate government document without offering a shred of evidence. The attorney general of the United States compared the Capitol protest to the Oklahoma City bombing where 168  people, including babies, were killed—even though the only person killed on January 6 was an unarmed protester, Ashli Babbitt.

As many people have said to me in response to my work over the past few months, this isn’t America.

Nope, it ain’t even close. But as far as “insurrections” and “attacks” against the “sacred temple” of “American” “democracy” go, I’m betting our masters will know the real thing when they see it, and when/if they do it won’t look anything like Jan 6th. More dead giveaways as to why:

  • Legitimate President-in-exile Trump’s repeated exhortations for “peaceful protest,” all of which were sneakily edited from the video record by Praetorian Media
  • The fact that none of the “treasonous” “insurrectionists” seem to have remembered to bring any guns with them to the “revolution”
  • The fact that the only KIA was actually one of our own—a woman summarily executed by a panicked, trigger-happy Deep State thug for the heinous atrocity of, umm, trespassing; interestingly, this “dangerous” “radical,” a serious and imminent threat to the very lives of our “beloved” political “leadership,” also happened to be unarmed

All in all, the only reasonable conclusion is that if this really WAS insurrection, it was the most piss-poor and preposterous attempt at one in all human history, launched by the most riotous gaggle of slapstick revolutionaries ever assembled for the purpose of bringing down the biggest, most powerful, and ruthless government on Earth. Insurrection? This was pure vaudeville.

But every sensible person knows full well what it was and what it wasn’t. The ludicrous, transparently false narrative of the Jan 6th protest is simply a club fabricated by The Power for the sole purpose of crushing all remaining opposition to the theft of the 2020 “election” and the consequent installation of full-on Leftist tyranny in Mordor On The Potomac, and not a jot or tittle more.

History, repeating itself

The shape of things to come.

There are many lessons to draw from the blood-soaked life of Lenin. But one of the most important is this takeaway for the terrifying “woke” moment America is living through right now. Things are not going to naturally get better. Things will not organically “calm down.” Until there is a fundamental reset of America’s treasonous leadership class, today’s unthinkable witch hunt is merely a prelude of an even darker globalist terror to come.

Once they had taken power, the Bolsheviks didn’t immediately launch Stalin-style mass purges. Instead, the Bolsheviks started off in a way modern Americans would find disturbingly familiar: By legitimizing criminal anarchy and co-opting the justice system.

In their earliest days, the Bolsheviks framed their political abuses as a “war on privilege.” In a tactic eerily reminiscent of 2020’s riots, the Bolsheviks of 1918 encouraged a decentralized campaign by the masses to plunder and crush class enemies.

From there, a grim recitation of then-and-now parallels that should freeze the gizzard of Real Americans, all of whom—whether they acknowledge it or not—are in the crosshairs of the evil Left. Then comes the most critical truth of all.

The left will not be placated by handing it victories. They are on a crusade, and as long as they are not stopped they will only become more extreme, more vengeful, and more dangerous.

Annnnd BINGO. How many times have I said it? They cannot be bargained with, compromised with, reasoned with. To treat with them as if they were honorable or trustworthy fellow Americans—people with differing opinions, sure, but nonetheless just people with whom we share a sense of basic human decency—is blind stupidity. In truth, they are the most dangerous, relentless enemy bedrock American concepts like liberty, unalienable natural rights, and self-determination have ever faced. Bottom line:

Cancel culture is only the prelude to the rape, torture, and murder of the American people by a resentful underclass goaded on by a parasitic globalist ruling class.

Despite uprooting every part of American life and spending trillions of dollars, liberalism has totally failed to abolish inequality in America. Instead of bringing universal prosperity, liberalism has produced homeless hellscapes, catastrophic public schools, gutted neighborhoods, and fragmented families. Finding the causes within liberalism is unthinkable. Again and again, big-city governments, private colleges, elite newspapers, and left-wing non-profits have been convulsed by witch hunts to root out “sexism” and “systemic racism.” Decades-old statements and stray words are sufficient proof to end a career, and sometimes not even that is needed. Rather than accept the reality that black Americans are more likely to commit crimes than other groups, liberals have declared war on the police. They would rather send good police to prison and subject millions of Americans to criminal terror than admit to a truth that is right in front of them.

But the second reason why the left constantly escalates its terrorism is more basic: Keeping power. Marx’s colleague Friedrich Engels wrote that “Terror is the needless cruelties perpetrated by terrified men.” The left is already inclined toward cruelty by disposition, but once frightened at the prospect of actual defeat, they go into a frenzy. For the Bolsheviks, it was the attempted murder of Lenin and the Russian Civil War. For the Globalist American Empire, it was the election of Donald Trump. Rather than accept an outcome that might bring about their demise, the empire struck back.

What will the future of America look like? Hopefully, it will never get as horrific as it did under past failing liberal states. But this regime is already one that will denounce a police officer for saving someone’s life. This is a regime that tries to imprison a teenager for life for defending himself while trying to protect his community from a rioting mob. This is a regime that foments war in Ukraine to avoid admitting it lost an election. This is a regime that takes children from their parents so they can be put on hormone pills and have their genitals mutilated.

This regime will never show mercy of its own free will. It will grow more and more tyrannical, and more and more extreme, until it stops or until it collapses. The worst of the terror is yet to come.

That brings us right ’round to the most discomfiting truth of all regarding Left ideology—one which Real Americans must confront squarely, without fear, reluctance, or evasion: You can vote your way in, but you have to shoot your way out. There’s just no getting around it: when it comes to Marxist government, delay is death.

“We are moving into very dark times, and government tyranny is only going to get worse”

Truer words were never spoke. But I still do have a nit or two to pick, surprising exactly no one.

We Are Now Entering Full-Blown Tyranny In The Western World

Um, dude, not to put too fine a point on this and all, but…ENTERING?!?

If we accept what they are doing to us now, they are just going to keep pushing the envelope. Over the past 12 months, authorities throughout the western world have used the pandemic as an excuse to impose Orwellian measures that we never would have accepted during normal times. They are promising us that these measures are just “temporary”, but the pandemic has already been with us for a year and there are no signs that it is going away any time soon. If those governing us are willing to go to such ridiculous extremes during a relatively minor pandemic, what are they going to be willing to do once things start getting really crazy?

I have a sinking feeling we’re going to find out, and without much in the way of further ado, either. Western mettle has been tested, and found very much wanting. The board has been set; the pieces are in position. The Enemy’s opening gambit was more successful than they even dreamed it might be, and there’s no reason at all for further delay on their part.

Out of 4.4 million people living in Alberta, there have only been 2,013 deaths, and about half of those were among people 80 years of age or older.

If it isn’t safe to go to church, why are hordes of Canadians allowed to circulate through retail establishments every single day of the week?

If churches should be shut down, you would think that Wal-Mart, Costco and Canadian Tire should be shut down too.

But they aren’t shut down.

In better days, that’s what sturdier men used to call a “dead giveaway.”

I know that a lot of you don’t want to hear this, but the pandemic is with us to stay.

And that means that the Orwellian measures that are being put in place are with us to stay too.

Orwellian measures were the whole point of the exercise, as I’ve maintained right from jump. This is not about a virus. It was NEVER about a virus. It was about finding out whether or not at least somewhat free people would accept the bit. They did, most of them not grudgingly but eagerly. And now, unless they find some way to spit it out, they’re going to choke on it.

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

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

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