A Demon and a Devil

Bannon calls Rupert Murdoch “a demon and a devil” and he’s right.

Along with many others I have stated over and over it is the republican party and Fox News that is our problem. It is they that are responsible for what we call the failures to stop the left, but in fact they are the left. They pretend to be “conservative” but in reality they stop after the first four letters, they are cons.

The Beginning of Something

OR, more accurately the Ramping Up of “Something”.
What happens when a state or states openly defy the feds? (Texas, Abbot)
What happens when a absolute anti-communist candidate becomes mayor of miami-dade county? (Otaola)
What happens when the next president says send them all back? (Trump, Alien Enemies Act)

Feels different to me. Time for other states to join in.

Governor Greg Abbott Officially Declares INVASION at Southern Border by the Mexican Drug Cartels

Ardent Anti-Communist Upends Miami-Dade Mayoral Race

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’

And Via Whatfinger News let’s add to that bit of news the beginning of the very end for the current regime:


“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never –

in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

“But we must learn to be equally good at what is short and sharp and what is long and tough. It is generally said that the British are often better at the last. They do not expect to move from crisis to crisis; they do not always expect that each day will bring up some noble chance of war; but when they very slowly make up their minds that the thing has to be done and the job put through and finished, then, even if it takes months — if it takes years — they do it.”

Winston Churchill (50% American!)

The great Rudyard Kipling “The Beginnings”:

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late
With long arrears to make good,
When the English began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy-willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the English began to hate.

Their voices were even and low,
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show,
When the English began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd,
It was not taught by the State.
No man spoke it aloud,
When the English began to hate.

It was not suddenly bred,
It will not swiftly abate,
Through the chill years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the English began to hate

George Washington knew these things before Churchill and Kipling were born, as did all the founding fathers. Recall, that there were many efforts at keeping the peace before war broke out.

A process began in 2015/2016. It has not dwindled since then, rather it is accelerating, much as the period prior to the Revolutionary War. There are setbacks, and there are turning points. I am not alone, we are not alone, in thinking a turning point has been reached. It does not mean blood will run in the streets, not yet. I link to a video, taken in Atlanta where black folks shout “Free Trump”:
(Hat tip to “Lube” commentor at the Treehouse))

The streets have never had a President. They’ve never had someone they could relate to, at least on some level, about a particular struggle or unjust circumstance…

Until last night. Last night, the streets were given a champion. They were given someone who they could see being set up, railroaded, arrested, and humiliated, just the way they have for decades.

Real recognizes real, and last night, the establishment uniparty made what will go down as the biggest mistake in modern history.

They martyred Trump and gave the streets a reason to love him.

Warlord Dilley

And the great Steve Bannon explains it best:

The communist marxist cabal made a mistake. They began firing while we are still armed, and we will


How do the republicans plan to STOP US (STOP TRUMP)? And yes you read that correctly, it is the republican party that is the real problem. They could put a stop to this illegal and corrupt lawfare in a heartbeat. I and others have told you for several years the R party planned to stop Trump by disallowing him the R nomination because “felony legal issues”. IMO, that is now dead because the support is so great that the R’s know the party would be destroyed. It appears the real twist to this is the let the D party do the dirty work, with only an important red state or two involved, by keeping Trump off the ballot in enough states. The following article explains this. Now ask yourself, “Self, why would they go to all this trouble if they are just going to steal it again like they did in 2020?”.

Trump Disqualified


Wrong house, wrong bed, wrong woman, wrong move

Scott Fitzgerald had it right: the rich are different from you and me.

Police Report: Drunk Tyson Foods VP Slips Into a Strange Woman’s House — and Bed

Oh, I’m enjoying this story already.

Sometimes, you just need to go home and sleep. And if you manage to do it adroitly, you go to a home that’s yours. Allegedly, such expert operation recently eluded an American meat mogul; the result was a calling of cops.

As reported by KNWA, Tyson Foods Chief Financial Officer John R. Tyson went Full Goldilocks Saturday night. John had decided to call it a night and hit the sack. Curiously, he chose a bed that wasn’t his — in a house belonging to a stranger.

Purportedly, a woman living in Fayetteville, Arkansas got home around 2:00 a.m. Sunday and retired to her room. But like one of The Three Bears, she took pause upon discovering someone in her bed.

Officers noticed a few things:

  • A lack of coordination
  • Sluggish movements
  • An odor of alcohol on his breath and body

Could the bigwig have gotten sloshed, found his way to a front door, staggered through a house ’til he found something soft, and transformed his intrusion into a snoozefest? It seems yes. If so, how’d he arrive to the address?

Whichever way it occurred, John was booked into the Washington County Detention Center Sunday. Charged with Public Intoxication and Criminal Trespass, he was let out that evening.

See what I mean? If it had been you, me, or anybody else reading this, we’d still be stuck in the hoosegow.


Free advice, and worth every penny

Meh, who gives a shit what they think? About this, or anything else?

At this point, it would save everyone time if Democrats could simply point to a policy agenda item that isn’t going to save democracy — if such a thing exists.

If Republicans vote, they are killing democracy. If they don’t vote, they are killing democracy. The only way to “save democracy,” writes The Washington Post’s Max Boot, is to empower one-party rule — a position that probably sounds counterintuitive to anyone with a middle-school education. “Now you need to vote to literally save democracy again,” contends President Joe Biden, or we will lose our “fundamental rights and freedoms like the right to choose, the right to privacy, the right to vote — our very democracy.”

The day I seek out the likes of Max fucking Boot (!) for his thoughts on how “our Sacred Democracy” might be “saved” is the day I…well, okay, that day ain’t never, EVER gonna come.

Chilling stuff. But it doesn’t end there. You will remember that by failing to “reform” the filibuster, which would entail authorizing the thinnest of fleeting majorities to shove through massive generational “reforms” without any national consensus or debate, we are also killing democracy. This has been the position not only of left-wing pundits and the New York Times editorial board, but also senators tasked with defending their institution. I wonder if they will support this democracy-saving fix next session, as well?

Then again, if we don’t nationalize the economy to avert a climate crisis, we are also killing democracy. “We’ve got to save democracy in order to save our species,” Jamie Raskin explains. And if we don’t empty the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to temporarily keep gas prices low to help Democrats win in 2022, we are killing democracy. “We find ourselves in a situation, where keeping gas prices low is key to preserving and strengthening the future of our democracy,” MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says.

We must allow the president to unilaterally create trillion-dollar spending bills and break existing private sector contracts by fiat. For democracy. We must pack the court to “save democracy.” We must create a Ministry of Truth to help with “strengthening democratic institutions.” We must vote for a Pennsylvania candidate who can’t cobble two consecutive coherent sentences together because the “fate of our democracy” is at stake, says our former president.

If you don’t support a partisan congressional investigation that’s circumvented basic due process norms, you probably hate democracy. If you aren’t self-flagellating and holding yourself accountable for the actions of Jan. 6 rioters, you are also bolstering the coming autocracy.

It’s an amusing enough column, and Harsanyi has always been a fine writer. In the end, though, it’s all just dog-bites-man stuff, offering nothing whatsoever new or earth-shattering. Personally, I find it grating at best to be lectured on “saving democracy” by practicing fascists. Not one of the above-mentioned sources will ever say anything of genuine interest or merit as far as I’m concerned, to judge by their record to date. Every man Jack of them can go straight to Hell for all me and remain there for the duration. And they can take their disingenuous “concern” for Our Sacred Democracy™ with ’em when they go, too.


Spare a Prayer

Greetings Y’all.

Divemedic’s Grandson is in a bit of a state.  Got hit with something that’s causing him (the boy) some serious medical issues.  He’s currently in a Pediatric ICU.

You can read about it HERE

DM is a great guy  and helping me get back online sooner rather than later, or at least that was the plan.  Seeings he’s now got a world of shytte to deal with,  I’m good with poasting here and bugging Mike on the reg as I am occasionally wont to do.

Say a few prayers for the lad, as no six-year-old child should be going through such stuff.

The lady has balls

Dear Woketard Leftists:


Sincerely, JK Rowling.

I’m beginning to think Ms Rowling is the pluperfect example of what Sinatra meant when he complimented some particular strong, self-assured, take-no-shit woman as a “great broad.” She also demonstrated that, unlike her shitlib tormenters, for her “classy” is more than just a word with no real meaning or relevance via this touching tribute to recently-deceased actor Robbie Coltrane, who was simply outstanding as Hagrid in the films based on Rowling’s brilliant Harry Potter series.

Well done and good on ya all the way ’round, ma’am. The whole world mourns your personal loss right along with you.


A Quick Update & Predictive Programming?

Greetings Y’all!
Yepper for a quick update who weren’t up to speed, the Blogspot Goolag-Nazis finally caught up with my ‘badthink’ and ‘wrongpoast.’  Only surprise dealing with that was the amount of time it took them goobers to finally drop the ban-hammer.  It is what it is, and I’m working with Divemedic on getting the backup running.  It takes some time as I had mothballed it back in February when the troll attacks, DDoS stuff and the like got just too damned tiresome.  So, that’s the scoop there.

Only updates I’m giving on the Great Granbebe Rescue is that we’re -still- trying to raise MOAR funds.  I greatly appreciate everyone who’s been assisting.  I know it’s a lot, but we just canned the first Lawyer when we realized we were being bled dry for no appreciative gain.  VERY annoying and then the now… I think this next trip will be # 4 roundtrip, which is actually #7 up, with #8 going back.  Let’s face it, what with gas being what it is, overall inflation, and the stupidity of  ‘stuff’ these days…  It’s going to be Adriana’s Birthday in a few and we’re trying to get a visitation…  I mentioned it on the Give Send Go update here

Said pics that utterly -refused- to poast there:

“I’m Not Too Sure About Y’all Shady MF’ers!”

So yeah… anywho.  To the point of todays somewhat ‘nervous-making’ stuff.  You all know I’m a BIG believer in ‘Predictive Programming’ with this as the defintion for those not-up-to-speed:

Predictive Programming is a form of perception management used to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by the global elite.”

Now, depending on -how tight- your tinfoil is these days, some of the folks out there theorize that “They” for a lack of a better definition have to let us know what “They” have in store for us… stories abound about the 1984 “Magic: The Gathering” styled game unironically named “Illuminati” that predicted the destruction of the World Trade Center, complete with an illustration showing one of the Towers being blown in two.  Now, sceptics have rightly pointed out that the card in question calls it “Terrorist Nuke” however, the adherents to the claims that “They” have to tell us what “They” intend on unleashing on us, the delivery means is inconsequential, just that we were warned.  The ‘Rules of the Grand Game’ being that IF -we- nominally fail to acknowledge or attempt to prevent said-acts, then it “ain’t on “Them” so to speak. It’s OUR fault for failing to protect ourselves.

Disingenuous to say the least, and definitely a tinfoil moment.
Problem is, the joke these days?
“What do you say to your crazy conspiracy theory friend in 2022?”
“I’m sorry, You were right

Another case of possible Predictive Programing is the Amazon (run by who, oh yeah, The Bezos) show called “Utopia” (filmed in early 2020 and released in September of the same year!) in which a group of ultra-rich Globalists (sound familiar?) with the eeeee-vil Big Pharma CEO Kevin Christie having a plan that “…consists of: (1) Convincing the world’s population that there is an outbreak of a deadly new virus, (2) Once convinced of the narrative of the faux-pandemic, announce to the public the creation of a new vaccine, (3) Through the coordination between global elites and non-governmental organizations, governments move quickly to inject the world’s population with this “vaccine”. (4) Once the population is injected, it turns out that the vaccine is designed to sterilize almost all of those people that take it, causing the global population to drop from 7.8 billion to about 500 million, and ushering in a new era of plenty.”


Say fucking WHAT!?!

Yep.  Bad Juju and Joss right there man… the timing, the concept?
You absolutely owe the cray-cray foil-wearing Uncle an apology.
“They” seem to have let the past two years of stoopid out on that one Aye?  Consider that even though it was well received, it only got one season of 8 episodes.  Released in September of 2020, cancelled Novemeber of that same year.
Guess the show did it’s job.

Now, my personal observation(s) from the past few days is that yet again they’re on a Predictive Programming “run” if’n you will.  The indicator(s) I’ve seen are somewhat disturbing, as in various articles, ramp-ups and whatnot?  The Magic 8 Ball when shaken is currently showing the status: Signs point to yes vis-a-vis that Nookular War is coming.  One of these observations is the current YouTube algo that follows my own ‘stuff’ that I watch.  I watch primarily the usual suspects, the AK Guy Brandon Herrera, Gun Jesus Ian, Nerdrotic, Doomcock and Az from HeelsVSBabyface… Occasionally some historical stuff, from WW2 for the most part and some of the silly stuff Wifey sends me.  To my Memory, I’ve never watched any WW3 or “Prep” vidyas for Nuclear War.

This afternoon my “Suggested Vidya”?
“The Day After”… we all remember that nightmare-fuel from when we were kids… watching the US get turned into Post-Toasties?  Yepper…
“Threads”, a BBC show in line with “The Day After” with Sheffield being graphically nuked
Add on “When the Wind Blows” a bit of a tear-jerker British “after The Bomb” movie where two pensioners…well, I’ll just leave it at that.  Check it our for yourself if you want to.  Thing is, I -haven’t- revisited any of that sort of ‘stuff’ from the ‘bad old days’ growing up 10 miles from two prime Soviet Targets… Pease Air Force Base and Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.  As a kid I was highly aware that if things were ‘pear shaped’ with Ivan, I wasn’t going to get to star in my own “Red Dawn” action flick, but more than likely get blown to my component atoms in the first multi-megaton exchange.

I had thought those days were well and truly behind us.
What I didn’t figure on was that The GriftGov and all of it’s Perverted Pedophilic and Satanic Minions would go so far as to blast us all to Hell just to keep their Grift and Reigns of Power under Their Exclusive Control.  Hell, six years ago I would never had thought of the FBI as a Stasi-like Organization that makes La Cosa Nostra look positively angelic by comparison.  Hell, I’d prefer the fucking MOB to be in charge, ‘cos at least then we could count on safe streets and their ‘piece of the action’ would be not be so absolutely ruinous to the entirety of the nation.

As it is, my own personal feelings are we’re getting set up for “…an Earth-Shattering Ka-BOOM!”  One other link I found that I haven’t seen noted is this HERE from  Seriously, I know Rense is like the web-base Art Bell, but go check it out.  I can’t testify to the veracity of said-poast, but IF it’s legit, we may be further ‘down the Rabbit Hole’ than we care to think about, because as the Admiral said in “Red October”:
“The Russians don’t take a dump, son, without a plan”
And that link above sure to me sounds like the Russians have a plan that the rest of us have yet to cotton on to.
I just hope it’s limited enough that I survive and the Grans survive.

SO, that’s about it for now, my thanks to my Gracious Host and BlogBro Mike for allowing me to throw this up whilst it was on my mind.
More Later I Remain The Intrepid Reporter
Big Country


Who’s in charge?

At this point, the only thing we know for certain is that it damned sure ain’t Pedo Joe.

Perhaps we should be thankful. Considering inflation, energy shortages and a world teetering on the brink, maybe the less Biden is involved, the better.

All of which were brought on by the Biden marionette’s handlers. Which means that statement applies equally to them, too.

To understand what’s happening, it’s best not to think of this as a Biden Presidency, but a Biden Regency.

The term was regularly used in the age of kings and empires. If an 8-year-old princess was placed on the throne or an incapable king couldn’t perform his duties, one or several regents would handle the day-to-day operations.

In like manner, Biden is surrounded with longtime D.C. power players, such as Ron Klain, Susan Rice, Anita Dunn, John Podesta, Gene Sperling – a veritable “who’s who” of Beltway knife fights and insider skullduggery. Throughout their long careers, they’ve never sought credit or voter approval. Just power.

And the less Joe is around, the more their regency can accomplish.

Which ain’t a good thing, for anybody.

These competing power centers explain the contradictory policies coming out of the Oval Office these days. Aggressively pushing a new Iran Nuclear Deal while Russia buys Iranian drones to fight Ukrainians. When there’s no one to say “the buck stops here,” the bucks turn up in pretty strange places.

It reminds me of the confusing end of Woodrow Wilson’s presidency. For his last 18 months in office, he was incapacitated with a stroke. First lady Edith Wilson and a handful of confidantes covered it up and ran the country themselves.

As with Wilson, historians will one day explain the Biden Regency more fully. But someone is running the country, and not very well.

How sure can we be of even that much, really? The Leviathan-state has become so massive, so ubiquitous, so many-fingered and multi-tentacled, that it begins to look more and more as if the infernal machine is essentially running on autopilot, an overcrowded clown car with a brick on the accelerator pedal coasting down into the ditch under its own power with nobody at the wheel. That could also account for those contradictory, nonsensical, and self-defeating policies easily enough, about as well as anything else does. But no, it definitely ain’t Grampy Gropey steering this thing; for one thing, he’s too old, senile, and decrepit to drive. Compare, contrast.


Heh. Nice snag, Mr President.


Row it back, row it back, row it WAAAY back!!!

The esteemed and estimable Mollie Hemingway pWnZ his senile, lying ass.

Heh. Indeed™.


Decline is a choice

BCE provides a capsule summary.

This country is sooooo far gone…I mean let’s have a short recap of the Decline and Soon-to-Be Fall of our Republic: As I see it, it was the Ministry of Lies and Propaganda that started off crashing and burning. That it ‘took sides’ right off the bat and everyone with two brain cells could see it happening…Partisan much? Jesus, they went on and on and on the attack during the entirety of OrangeManBads Presidency. It was compounded by the pre-(s)election enemedia coverage, where a doddering kidsniffing “Weekend at Brandons” corpse was propped up and sold like it was the Second Coming.

In second place for ‘teh stupid’, it was the Bureaucracy of the Deep State that was finally revealed to ‘We The Peepo’ that there is a ‘Power Behind The Throne”…apparently even more powerful than the President himself. Minor Petty Officialdom who lord over the rest of us with impunity, and laugh at us in our helplessness. Dug in with no way to fight them, we’re forced (for now) to put up with their callous disregard for the Constitution and decency.

The blatantly obvious steal of the (s)election is up next, what with installing the first genuine Usurper in our history to become the (p)Resident, backed by the GloboHomoMegaCorpTech Overlords. That finished off any and all belief that ‘Murica was “One Person-One Voat” and nuked any love for any of the Oligarchs of America. It used to be that “…anyone can grow up and become President!” I heard that shytte growing up all the time…Now? They’ve well put that particular lie to rest but hard Aye?

Then, the treatment of anyone who isn’t ‘part of the club’…The Jan6 Kids…talk about unequal treatment under the Law…AntiFa/ Burn down a city? No problem. Seeings that they’re the SA (Sturmabteilung…the paramilitary arm of the early Nazi Party) which is currently doing the same fucking job for the fucking Party in Power right now? Yep… and everyone can see it.

87 thousand new IRS motherfuckers? Armed motherfuckers? Pure intimidation…Of course it’ll take time to hire, train and field them, and I’m not overly worried, as the new hiring roolz and regulamations put in place means that the DEI (which in my book stands for Dumbass Exploited Ignoramuses, i.e. phaggots, trannies, nogs and any other ‘protected group’) will get preferential treatment in the hiring process.

Which means we’ll get a boatload on non-English speaking magic dirt folks acting as Armed IRS Accountants who can’t count without removing their shoes. Gonna be fun watching that shit happen, if it even gets that far.

So, yeah.
Grab the Popcorn and Brace for Impact.

“Pure intimidation” is exactly, precisely correct; as of now, they’ve made it clear as crystal that they care not the first jot nor tittle about what we may think, say, or desire. They intend to Rule, not Govern, and that’s flat. To them, we’re no longer Citizens; we’re Subjects, that’s all, bound by our own pusillanimity and sloth to submit to their every whim. Our respect, our trust, our patriotic affection, our allegiance are all as nothing to them. We are lowly playthings, to be batted around like a cat’s toy for their amusement, when they deign to notice our Deplorable selves at all.

As I keep saying, they’ve lost all fear of us. They sorely need to be reminded of the seriousness of their error—forcefully, directly, ruthlessly. And yes, violently. There must be no tactic or stratagem considered to be out of bounds or off the table in this endeavor. Today, the slogan “by any means necessary” rings more true and applicable than it ever did before.

In plain, easily-comprehensible language, our Founding Fathers informed their posterity (ie, US) that such a reminder was not just the right but the duty of all who would live in liberty. Should we shirk, ignore, or evade that solemn duty, we are surely lost.


“A profound turning point in Western history”

A proudly unreconstructed Southron speaks his piece.

Last night, like many Americans, I was shocked to see that former President of the United States, Donald Trump, had his home raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). This is a profound turning point in Western history. For the better part of the past two centuries, the U.S. has enjoyed unprecedented stability because it did not raid the homes of political rivals. The rest of the democratic world looked upon the United States as a model for successful representative government. To watch a politically motivated raid on a former president essentially showed the rest of the world that the U.S. is no longer the model it claimed to be. It so devastatingly rotten to its very core that anyone with eyes can see that unelected officials run the United States – not the people… not its representatives… not its Constitution.

For those who hate Trump, it is important to note that this raid is more than just Trump. Trump is a polarizing figure in American politics. Trump is also a billionaire. This is not an ordinary, well intentioned political protester who walked the Halls of Congress on January 6th getting hunted down by the FBI a year later at his plumbing job. This is a powerful person in his own right with nearly seventy-five million supporters. The fact that they can attempt the gulag treatment on Trump should be a massive wake-up to any powerless, ordinary citizen with an unpopular view. They are coming for you, next.

…The United States was founded on a core principle that elections would be respected as the will of the people. The Declaration of Independence stated, “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” As such, the very establishment of the United States was a rebuke to the prevailing governments of the time – unaccountable monarchies – to the wishes of the voting citizenry. Southern Nationalists would argue that the consent of the governed was destroyed in 1865. Regardless, the façade of an elected representative government endured until now.

In 2016, the citizenry chose Donald Trump. For four years, the unelected entities harassed and targeted the will of the people, showing their disdain for the American voter. In effect, unelected bureaucrats with political allies conspired to deprive the consent of the governed – and the chosen representatives of the United States charged with guarding that consent, failed. They abrogated their responsibility to those who elected them because they lacked both the courage and moral fortitude to protect the people’s choice. When given the opportunity to hold unelected officials accountable for their undemocratic actions, those people failed.

They failed to protect the right of dissidents to express their personal conscience at Charlottesville. They failed to hold accountable those individuals who manipulated the FISA Courts to weaponize the FBI against the candidate of a major political party. They failed to defend those who peacefully protested on January 6th, 2021. They have failed at every single level. Their failures and lack of courage empowered and encouraged unelected officials to crush the inherent rights of the American people.

The raid on Trump is not about Trump. The raid on Trump is a coup against arguably the most successful republic in history. Washington, DC, is overthrowing the rights you thought you had. They are driving a nail in the coffin of republican governance (little ‘R’). They are showing you that they are the power, not you, the voting citizen. Attacking Trump is all about proving to the little guy that he is powerless. If you elect the wrong person, we will remove him – and then you.

The United States is dead. It cannot be revived. This is the regime flexing on you, the worthless American voter. The choice is simple: stay on the Titanic as its newfound masters order you to swab the decks of oncoming water or jump ship by means of secession. If you wish to keep the United States intact, so be it. You should move to a Yankee blue state and enjoy the future that your demographic replacement will ensure. You might as well get used to those laws now. Meanwhile, if you are a Southerner flying the American flag, you are part of the problem. The most important flag flying over your home should be your state flag. Displaying imagery that expresses your bended knee toward Washington, DC, is an indication of your loyalties. You have chosen the Union over the Founding Principles. You have chosen elected bureaucrats over your own people. You have shown that when we need you, you will not be there for us.

The raid on Trump should be a wake-up call that the Yankee government cannot be reformed. It is gone. The Constitution will not protect him. The Constitution will not protect you. Secession will.

I dunno if I can be too terribly sanguine about that last bit. After all, it certainly didn’t do the trick for us last time it was tried. As for the rest of it, yes indeedy—indubitably, unimpeachably correct, every last syllable of it.

“Provocation”? Fine by me

Disagree, with every fiber of my being.

This is a provocation. They are trying to get a reaction that allows a further crackdown.
Don’t take the bait.

My overall sense of what happened at Mar-a-Lago is that this is a provocation.

If New York Times reporting is right — and they never err on the side of being soft on Trump — then this raid was over documents the National Archives thinks Trump should not have, or perhaps classified documents in his possession. That is not something the FBI raids major political candidates over — See, In Re Hillary Rodham Clinton.

This is a provocation. They are trying to get a reaction that allows a further crackdown. See, In Re J6.

It’s also a provocation to get Trump to declare his candidacy for President before the midterms. Democrats would love to turn 2022 into a referendum on Trump rather than the deliberate destruction of the national borders and inflation.

Would the FBI and DOJ do such a thing? Aren’t they “above” politics? The then FBI Director James Comey admitted to trying to set up the new President Trump by alerting him to the Steele Dossier, and then leaked the story of the briefing to CNN, which gave license to report on the false allegations in the dossier. So yes, the FBI and DOJ would do such a thing, and have done such a thing to Trump.

All the more reason to keep your heads about you.

Don’t take the bait. Being stupid isn’t tough, it’s just stupid.

And so once again, the same tired old argument for doing nothing in supine response to the most grotesque affronts imaginable is trotted out as if it were something fresh and new. As if we hadn’t been sanctimoniously lectured, again and again and again, about how very vital it is that we “take the high road”; that we prove ourselves to be “better” than they are by refusing to engage them, never “sinking to their level”; that defeat “with honor” is always preferable to winning “dishonorably.” As if the so-called “high road” had ever led us anywhere worth the trip.

Stuff and nonsense, that’s what. Mind you, I’ve always liked and respected William Jacobsen. Certainly, he’s a hugely talented blogger whose work I have enjoyed, linked to, and excerpted here at CF numerous times over lo, these many years.

But to me, the above is just horseshit of the purest ray serene, no more nor less. Foremost among several crippling flaws hobbling Bill’s pigeon-toed premise is the manifestly spurious idea that, should we timidly identify the Mar A Lago outrage as yet another hill which isn’t worth dying on, The Power will deign to reward the Serf Class for its forbearance by not “cracking down” on us “further.”

This is self-evidently absurd, absurd on its very face, absurdity on stilts. It is kissing-cousins with the perennial McCain/Romney Gambit, which forever contends—despite repeated demonstrations confirming the falsity of its core premise—that if we just Play Nice with them, then surely they’ll finally stop whacking us over the head with that awful Big Stick of theirs. Won’t they?

Well, it ain’t happened yet, nor is it remotely likely that it ever will. After all, given the consistent success abusing us has reliably yielded for them for so many, many years, why on earth would they ever abandon the tactic? Sorry, no; at the risk of sounding rather broken-recordish here: They WILL NOT stop. They will have to BE stopped. Which necessarily means giving them a REASON to stop. And that’s entirely on us, and nobody else.

At some point, one has to ask: Why must it always and forever be Our Side which is required to stay our hands, to restrain ourselves, to respond with moderation and judiciousness to ceaseless insult and injury? Why must Our Side always and forever be expected to abjure meeting calumny with calumny, radicalism with radicalism, violence with violence? Does “fairness” really demand of us, in the name of Bathhouse Barry Obama’s famed “This is not Who We Are” dictum, that we always and forever lower our heads submissively and meekly take whatever they and their Deep State entity might decide to dish out with neither objection nor resistance?

Are defiance, rebellion, rage, and refusal always and forever to be reserved as exclusive, proprietary provenances of the Evil Left, to be Theirs and Theirs alone?

If this be provocation, then make the most of it, I say. Whether we do or we do not, we will be treated no less harshly for it.

Comments policy

NOTE: In order to comment, you must be registered and approved as a CF user. Since so many user-registrations are attempted by spam-bots for their own nefarious purposes, YOUR REGISTRATION MAY BE ERRONEOUSLY DENIED.

If you are in fact a legit hooman bean desirous of registering yourself a CF user name so as to be able to comment only to find yourself caught up as collateral damage in one of my irregularly (un)scheduled sweeps for hinky registration attempts, please shoot me a kite at the email addy over in the right sidebar and let me know so’s I can get ya fixed up manually.

ALSO NOTE: You MUST use a valid, legit email address in order to successfully register, the new anti-spam software I installed last night requires it. My thanks to Barry for all his help sorting this mess out last night.

Comments appear entirely at the whim of the guy who pays the bills for this site and may be deleted, ridiculed, maliciously edited for purposes of mockery, or otherwise pissed over as he in his capricious fancy sees fit. The CF comments section is pretty free-form and rough and tumble; tolerance level for rowdiness and misbehavior is fairly high here, but is NOT without limit.

Management is under no obligation whatever to allow the comments section to be taken over and ruined by trolls, Leftists, and/or other oxygen thieves, and will take any measures deemed necessary to prevent such. Conduct yourself with the merest modicum of decorum, courtesy, and respect and you'll be fine. Pick pointless squabbles with other commenters, fling provocative personal insults, issue threats, or annoy the host (me) won't.

Should you find yourself sanctioned after running afoul of the CF comments policy as stated and feel you have been wronged, please download and complete the Butthurt Report form below in quadruplicate; retain one copy for your personal records and send the others to the email address posted in the right sidebar.

Please refrain from whining, sniveling, and/or bursting into tears and waving your chubby fists around in frustrated rage, lest you suffer an aneurysm or stroke unnecessarily. Your completed form will be reviewed and your complaint addressed whenever management feels like getting around to it. Thank you.

Notable Quotes

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

Claire's Cabal—The Freedom Forums


"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

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

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

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

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

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

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

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

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

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

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

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

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

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

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

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

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