Generals, then and now

Right from the opening paragraph, this article is proof that some things never change.

On September 1, 1939, Brigadier George C. Marshall took the oath of office as the 15th U.S. Army chief of staff, a post he held until November 1945. When the ceremony ended, General Marshall confided to his aide de camp, “There is enough dead wood in the Army’s officer corps to light several forest fires.”

Marshall was more right than he knew. If the U.S. Army and Army Air Corps fought shoulder to shoulder with the French Army in 1940, American arms would have suffered the same fate as the French and British Armies—total defeat at the hands of the German Wehrmacht. This fact was made painfully obvious 14 months after the Second World War broke out.

In February 1943, 11,000 German troops smashed through the 30,000 soldiers of the U.S. Army’s II Corps at Kasserine Pass. The U.S. commander, Major Gen. Lloyd Fredendall, a swaggering blowhard, was relieved and sent home. It was not the last time that a cigar-chewing imitation of a real general would fail in action against the German onslaught, but the experience strengthened Marshall’s intolerance of general officer failure in action.

Today, the task of finding senior military leaders with character, competence and intelligence is immeasurably harder than it was in Marshall’s day. Under the Bush and Obama administrations, the American media’s adulation for four stars transformed general officers such as Petraeus, McChrystal, Mattis, Allen, and Austin into instant celebrities.

Four stars now automatically become part of a mutual general officer admiration society, that cheers even mediocre performance in general officers chosen for high command, because, like “made men” in the Mafia, senior leaders agree not to turn on their peers. Eliminating failed general officers, even when failure is found out the hard way in action, is deemed dangerous to a promotion system based on nepotism that presents itself as infallible.

Political leaders are of no help.

Quite the opposite, I’d say, of course and as always.

The point is that General Mark Milley is not an isolated example. He’s the product of an environment that has existed for nearly 30 years, if not longer. Behind Mark Milley stand another two dozen four stars ready to take his job that are indistinguishable from him in their attitudes and career patterns.

Is the situation hopeless? History answers with an emphatic “No.”

After the defeat of the U.S. Army’s II Corps, General Sir Harold Alexander, Eisenhower’s British deputy, commented on Fredendall to his American allies, “I’m sure you must have better men than that.” Eisenhower agreed. Major Gen. Patton, a man who but for the outbreak of WWII would have retired as an obscure cavalry colonel, replaced Fredendall.

As the author says, the correct answer to the question “is the situation hopeless” is “an emphatic ‘No,'” and always will be. As such, the question is immaterial. The question that matters is: Are we up to the challenge of doing everything required of us to prevail over the exigencies that make the situation APPEAR hopeless? That question is strictly pass/fail, and will NOT be graded on a curve.

Update! This might look to be unrelated at first glance, but I assure you it ain’t.

Mike responds to a post of mine from yesterday, and finishes with:

Yes, the whole system is rotten to the core, to the point that it can never be fixed or restored via traditional, peaceful means. AS ZMan put it, a system that is immune to voting is not going to be fixed by more voting.

I agree with this, of course. And while my assessment may sound bleak, I still believe it to be accurate. People, especially patriotic Americans, have been willing to swallow damned near anything to avoid admitting to themselves just how bleak the situation actually is. Why? Because if they do admit it, they then are face to face with the next question: What the hell do we do about it?

And that is a very painful question, because there are no good, painless answers. Oh, sure, you can gargle a big glass of normality bias and pretend that voting gooderer and harderer will fix things. Or that some deep counter-Qspiracy is going to defeat the Ruling Class and its Deep State. But that, of course, is simply denying the reality you have to admit and confront in order to deal with it on a personal basis going forward. That’s the thing, see? It’s going to hit you personally, whether you want it to or not. It won’t go away just because you ignore it, or tell yourself it’s not really what it looks like.

Read on to find out just how very related it is. In fact, the thing that sometimes makes me sit up a little straighter and rub my eyes in awe and wonder is how deeply interconnected all the issues confronting us are—yet another of those things that, once seen, cannot be UNseen.

Cooper on violence, and other things

After running across a great LTC Jeff Cooper quote on the topic of violence over at GFZ, to wit…

One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that ‘violence begets violence.’ I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure – and in some cases I have – that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy.

…I decided to dig around the Innarnuts for more of the same good stuff, and found—well, not a ton, but somewhat more of it than I really expected. Enjoy.

Fight back! Whenever you are offered violence, fight back! The aggressor does not fear the law, so he must be taught to fear you. Whatever the risk, and at whatever the cost, fight back!

The only acceptable response to the threat of lethal violence is immediate and savage counterattack. If you resist, you just may get killed. If you don’t resist you almost certainly will get killed. It is a tough choice, but there is only one right answer.

Any man who is a man may not, in honor, submit to threats or violence. But many men who are not cowards are simply unprepared for the fact of human savagery.

Weapons compound man’s power to achieve; they amplify the capabilities of both the good man and the bad, and to exactly the same degree, having no will of their own. Thus we must regard them as servants, not masters – and good servants to good men. Without them, man is diminished, and his opportunities to fulfill his destiny are lessened. An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it.

If you find yourself under lethal attack don’t be kind. Be harsh. Be tough. Be ruthless.

The police cannot protect the citizen at this stage of our development, and they cannot even protect themselves in many cases. It is up to the private citizen to protect himself and his family, and this is not only acceptable, but mandatory.

If you don’t understand weapons you don’t understand fighting. If you don’t understand fighting you don’t understand war. If you don’t understand war you don’t understand history. And if you don’t understand history you might as well live with your head in a sack.

The will to survive is not as important as the will to prevail…the answer to criminal aggression is retaliation.

According to Herodotus, the ancient Persians felt that what was necessary in the background of a young man entering adulthood was his ability to ride, shoot straight, and speak the truth. Perhaps we should now grant our college degrees to young men who measure up to that standard.

Dead accurate. For anybody here who might be unfamiliar with Col Cooper—which I can neither comprehend nor forgive—he was nothing less than a bona fide American icon, a giant among men whose passing in 2006 diminished us all. Some biographical info:

John Dean “Jeff” Cooper (May 10, 1920 – September 25, 2006) was a United States Marine, the creator of the “modern technique” of handgun shooting, and an expert on the use and history of small arms.

Cooper was born in Los Angeles where he enrolled in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps at Los Angeles High School. He graduated from Stanford University with a bachelor’s degree in political science. He received a regular commission in the United States Marine Corps (USMC) in September 1941. During World War II he served in the Pacific theatre with the Marine Detachment aboard USS Pennsylvania. By the end of the war he had been promoted to major. He resigned his commission in 1949, but returned to active duty during the Korean War, where he claimed to be involved in irregular warfare, and was promoted to lieutenant colonel. After the Korean War, the Marine Corps declined his application to remain on active duty. In the mid-1960s, he received a master’s degree in history from the University of California, Riverside. From the late 1950s through the early 1970s, he was a part-time high school and community college history teacher.

In 1976, Cooper founded the American Pistol Institute (API) in Paulden, Arizona (later the Gunsite Academy). Cooper began teaching shotgun and rifle classes to both law enforcement and military personnel, as well as civilians, and did on-site training for individuals and groups from around the world. He sold the firm in 1992, but continued living on the Paulden ranch. He was known for his advocacy of large caliber handguns, especially the Colt 1911 and the .45 ACP cartridge.

Exemplars like Jeff Cooper are never in abundant supply at any time, in any place. In present-day America we have not only lost all capacity to birth and nurture them, but to appreciate their inestimable worth. Actually, it’s even worse than that: many if not most of us seem to actively hold such men in contempt, to perceive them not as representations of national glory but as shameful throwbacks, people whose excision is the only hope for real progress.

A bleg

So…anybody out there know anything about Wish.com? I somehow stumbled upon ’em in reference to this big sale on Benchmade knives they seem to be having. After a cursory lookover of the website I downloaded their app and started poking around a little, seeing as how 1) I’ve always been a knife guy; II) Benchmade in particular has for years now been my edged weapon of choice, and C) I’m always searching for a bargain.

But these prices make “bargain” look positively exorbitant. I mean, a North Fork folder, stabilized-wood grips, not my preferred style but whatevs, usually seen at between two-three hundo, on offer at Wish for…hmm, lemme see now…

HMMMM

TWENTY-THREE FUCKING BUCKS?!?

Or how about, say, something in a fixed-blade? Sturdy, reliable, handy for all kinds of jobs; one can never have too many of those around, and the only one I currently own is a gorgeous Arkansas Toothpick-style blade, custom made for me on the cheap by a local knifemaker (BEWARE: SEVERE DIGRESSION AHEAD) who worked as a night security guard at the old NCNB building downtown, one of my dailies when I was working for Airborne Express. I got to know the guy, name of Bob, quite well over several years; night shift, for him and me both, was decidedly lacking in the frenetic pace of activity seen during the daytime hours. So most nights, we had plenty of leisure to just relax and chew the fat for a while. Which, once he figured out I was the same kind of dyed in the wool blade enthusiast he was himself, we did.

Eventually, he offered to run me up a rig of my own design from the ground up—with hand-tooled ginyoowine leather boot-sheef to match, no less—for the low, low, fire-sale price of only 90 smackeroos (any fellow cut ‘n’ slash folks out there will know very well just what a steal that was). Needless to say, I jumped all over the deal with all feet and hands. If I recall correctly, I ran a pitcher of that purty thing here on CF not all that long ago…let me just rummage around in the Media folder and see if I can…ohhh yeah, here t’is:

You can’t tell too good from the pic, but the haft is some kind of exotic, rare South American wood, can’t remember what it’s called, which is naturally blue in color. The blue has darkened and deepened a lot over the years, but still retains a much lighter hue along the grain that makes for a lovely, stripey contrast I’ve never seen the like of. Blade is double-edged–ie, a small sword, in keeping with the Arkansas Toothpick definitional standard–and full tang. Heft and balance are perfect, as you would expect, and the blade is honed to such a fine edge I once sliced the tip of a finger off while cleaning and polishing it when I had let my attention momentarily wander—an embarrassing knife-noob fuckup I have NOT repeated since, and won’t again. I didn’t even know I’d done it till I saw all that blood beginning to smear along the blade’s entire length, upon which remarakable discovery a great gobbet of fingertip slipped slowly off the cutting edge and plopped sickeningly to the floor at my feet. Never have tried this knife as a thrower, which I’m inexperienced, untrained, and indifferent with/to anyhoo and so try to stay away from.

So where were we? Oh right, checking Wish listings for prices on Benchmade fixed-blades. Here we have a Nimravus dagger-style, tactical nylon sheath, aluminum alloy grips, asking price TWENTY WHOLE DOLLARS?!? SRSLY???

COME ON, MAN!!!!

Okay, I hate to go all gimlet-eyed cynical and suspicious-like here, I really do. My natural inclination is to be more the trusting, optimistic, and respectful type. I’ve always been a guy who prefers to assume the best of people, until they give me a good reason not to. All the same, though, I also have no desire to be a sucker or a mark, and I do NOT react at all well to being played for one.

I’ve never heard about any fly-by-nighter outfits daring to produce el-cheapo Benchmade knockoffs out there, which damned sure doesn’t mean there ain’t none. Given Benchmade’s long-established rep for quality in materials, design, and workmanship—all the moreso given its renown for NOT being excessively gentle with its pricing—it would take one ballsy sumbitch to even attempt it. But these days, who knows.

In the case of the fixed-blade linked above, the merchant is something yclept “China Knife,” which I think might possibly provide something of a minor clue as to what might really be going on here. I can tell you for certain that I have never, EVER come across ANY legit Benchmade product of ANY kind, not even a wee small whetstone, being sold that cheaply. So it seems to me these impostures can no-how no-way be on the up and up, which to me means same-same for Wish itself. Thoughts, anyone?

Organization Men

Brandon Smith offers some ideas on how one might go about this thing.

There is a simple fact that must be understood when it comes to the fight for liberty: Such a fight cannot be won by lone individuals. Freedom requires organized resistance and it does not matter how many millions of people stand against an authoritarian regime, if they are completely isolated from each other they WILL lose. It’s a guarantee.

Actually, I’m kinda conflicted on that. Admittedly, humans seem to be genetically predisposed to create organizations and hierarchical leadership structures to run them. In this context, though, organizing at anything above squad- or cell-level numbers will also create infiltration and surveillance/intel-gathering opportunities, among other highly undesirable failure points.

Many of us are already clamoring about the need to organizate, and expressing great frustration that no inspiring Great Man has yet appeared to lead Patriots into battle, then on to ultimate victory. I don’t hold with any of that myself. When the time is right and the need for him is apparent, Team LIberty will find the leader it needs readily enough. Until then, such a person will only make himself a target, a resource whose usefulness the Enemy will identify and exploit posthaste. Unsurprisingly Brandon is smart and experienced enough to know it.

It is important to understand the difference between a Lexington Bridge moment and a Fort Sumter moment – During Lexington Bridge, the revolutionaries took action to stop a British detachment from arresting colonial leaders and confiscating rifles and powder stores. The British were in the midst of an undeniable attempt to disarm and snuff out the resistance. At Fort Sumter, the Confederate attack was in response to an attempted resupply of the fort itself; which made sense strategically but looked like an act of pure aggression to the wider public. The concept of states rights (more prominent in the minds of the confederates than the issue of slavery) fell by the wayside.

Eventually tyranny has to put boots on the ground. A totalitarian system can function for a time on color of law and implied threats, but it will crumble unless it is able to establish a physical presence of force. Once those jackboots touch soil in a visible way and the agents of the state try to expand oppressive measures, rebels then have a free hand to disrupt them or bring them down. But this only works if there are objectives and enough decentralization to prevent misdirection of the movement.

Some organization is essential. It cannot be avoided. All the “Gray Men” and secret squirrel preppers out there that think they are going to simply weather the storm in isolation and pop out of their bug-out locations to rebuild are suffering from serious delusions. I can’t help but think of that moment in ‘Lord Of The Rings’ when the Ents refuse to organize to fight against the invading orcs. Pippen suggests to Merry that the problem is too big for them and that they should go back to the Shire to wait out the war. Merry laments:

“The fires of Isengard will spread. And the woods of Tuckborough and Buckland will burn. And all that was once green and good in this world will be gone. There won’t be a Shire, Pippin.”

If this fight is not pursued now, there will be no world worth coming back to, even if one was able to successfully hide from it. There will be a “new world order” as the globalists like to call it. There will be nothing left of freedom.

So, organization must be accomplished, and it should be built at the local level. This is far more important than any dreams of a national organization, at least for now. There is no one we can trust to lead such a nationwide revolt, and that includes political leaders like Donald Trump.

And on that last, I feel no conflict or uncertainty whatever—Brandon is one hundred percent correct, right down the line. The dilemna we face at present is a thorny one indeed, of which the “who do ya trust, who do ya trust” issue is one of the largest and sharpest. Yes, you’ll want to read all of it. Delve into the comments too; as is his wont, Brandon pops up there throughout, and the insights he provides there are every bit as not-to-be-missed as the article itself.

Since Brandon was clever enough to bring up Lord Of The Rings as a metaphor, and since I already recommended his comments section, one of the posters therein suggests this next as a sort of companion piece, one whose aptness regarding the current contretemps will have any Tolkien fan nodding his head in quiet satisfaction.* The opening sets the stage:

“Do you not yet understand? My time is over: it is no longer my task to set things to rights, nor to help folk to do so. And as for you, my dear friends, you will need no help. You are grown up now. Grown indeed very high; among the great you are, and I have no longer any fear at all for any of you.”
The Lord of the Rings, Loc. 996
 
“‘Good, good!’ cried Farmer Cotton. ‘So it’s begun at last! I’ve been itching for trouble all this year, but folks wouldn’t help.”
The Lord of the Rings, Loc. 1008

Introduction
There are many things to be learned in Middle Earth, and this would include things that we all once knew, but have since forgotten. And the things we have forgotten fall into two categories. We have forgotten some of the things we have already completely lost, and we have also forgotten the foundation of some of the remaining things we (for some reason) still have. We have forgotten what is long gone, and we have forgotten what might still preserve our remaining good.

In The Lord of the Rings, the hobbits of the Shire, protected as they were by the Rangers, took all their peace and security for granted. All that peace and security was somehow their birthright. It was just how things were, of necessity. It would just continue, right? All by itself, isn’t that correct? Well, no.

In other words, they forgot the basis of their security and safety long before they actually lost their security and safety. And this meant that once they were in trouble, and knew they were in trouble, they were leaderless and didn’t know the way out. When despotic and irrational rule takes over any people, the corruption is centralized and organized, while the unhappiness with the corruption is decentralized and not organized at all. The corrupt ones are organized and have a plan, and those who suffer under their ministrations haven’t even thought about a plan.

But once the hobbits had that necessary leadership—which came in the form of Merry and Pippin, and Frodo and Sam—they found they had hidden reserves. These hobbits of the Shire found they had hidden reserves because they were rallied by those four adventurous hobbits who had found out earlier about their hidden reserves.

I recently finished reading The Lord of the Rings (yet again), and the penultimate chapter is The Scouring of the Shire—which to my mind is the most satisfying episode in the whole trilogy, and as you well know, that is saying something.

But this time through, it was different. It struck me, reading through that chapter, that there were numerous things that Americans of our generation really need to learn from this. And so I have assembled some of those lessons in a reasonable order, and have made some observations about what the hobbits learned. I was astonished at how much their situation was parallel to ours.

He’s perfectly right to be, I couldn’t agree more: the parallels are in fact nothing short of astonishing. Once you’ve seen them, it’s hard to imagine how you ever missed them in the first place. Then again, a certain timeless relevance is characteristic of all truly great literature—one of the traits that defines great literature, actually. The above excerpt ought to be enough to whet your appetite for more, I believe. It’s a long ‘un, but well worth your time and attention, whether you’re a devotee of Tolkien’s books (I definitely am, since the age of about, oh, thirteen or thereabouts) or not.

*NOTE: That would be the books, I mean, not the movies. Peter Jackson’s magisterial film adaption left the Scouring of the Shire chapters that close ROTK out of the third movie altogether, an omission that baffled some and angered others. Personally, I wasn’t bothered by it, since he had already made such a bang-up job of cramming in everything else. If Jackson had included it, he would have needed FOUR movies to do it, not three. Just thought I’d mention it, since that last article uses the Scouring as its springboard and central focus.

Never trust a liar

Y’all may have noticed that I’ve had very little to say regarding the various recounts, audits, and what-have-you that have been grinding endlessly on in two or three states. There’s more than one reason for that, but mostly they all come down to one thing: even if they produced iron-clad, incontrovertible proof that the 2020 “election” was stolen—which, we all already know full well that it was—well, what then? Is there a man alive so hopelessly naive as to imagine that, in acknowledgment of these proofs, Biden would bow his head in shame and contrition; mumble an incoherent, rambling apology for the “error”; then pack his grip and stumble on back to Delaware?

Of course not; the very idea of it is ridiculous. No, the “election” was indeed fraudulent; Biden is “****president****”, for whatever that’s still worth and whatever it still means to anybody; and it’ll stay that way a few more months, maybe a year, until he finally croaks and Cumala the Willie Wanker is sworn in. That’s all there is to it. If we truly do want this issue properly addressed, we’re going to have to do it ourselves. There ain’t but just the one way to do that, and we all already know what it is.

That said, though, there’s also this:

Biden Breaking Bad | Kunstler
Up this afternoon (Friday) for instance: the results of the Maricopa, AZ, election audit. The New York Times has declared a preliminary draft of the audit “a cap-gun ending to an inquiry whose backers hinted would turn up a cannonade of fraud.” Their conclusion: “Joe Biden” won the 2020 election fair-and-square. That would be momentous if it were true, but is it? Or is it just the juke of a player that typically runs zig-zags through the facts? The Times certainly has an interest in, shall we say, getting ahead of the story in its never-ending quest to control the narrative — as opposed to delivering actual news fit to print. I’m standing by to sort out the jokers from the face-cards.

Basically I see this NYT piece as battlefield prep, and the revealing of the Official Line as to regarding the Maricopa Audit.

In my experience, the audit could show that half of all of Biden’s votes in Maricopa Country were fraudulent in some way or other, but the NYT and its harem of emasculated “journalism” outlets would repeat in unison, “Proof positive that “Joe Biden” won fair and square.”

Unfortunately, I’ve been worried for quite a while that the Maricopa audit results would not be nearly as clear cut or explosive as we’ve been promised.

We’ve seen a nearly unbroken string of “selling the sizzle,” but when the plate arrives it turns out to be “where’s the beef?”

We’ll know more this afternoon, but my early hunch is that the “sizzle” will turn out to be more of a fizzle.

Bill waxes even more depressed after that already-bleak assessment:

UPDATE:

Arizona audit draft report confirms Biden beat Trump in 2020
A monthslong hand recount of Maricopa County’s 2020 vote confirmed that President Joe Biden won and the election was not “stolen” from former President Donald Trump, according to early versions of a report prepared for the Arizona Senate.
 
The three-volume report by the Cyber Ninjas, the Senate’s lead contractor, includes results that show Trump lost by a wider margin than the county’s official election results. The data in the report also confirms that U.S. Sen. Mark Kelly won in the county.

If this turns out to be accurate, the entire “Trump lost in 2020 because the election was fraudulently stolen” narrative will collapse and blow away within 24 hours.

At least among everybody but the truest of true believers.

Don’t buy into it. The NYT is indeed propagandizing, prepping the battlespace and shoring up the morale of their drooltard Leftist audience. But it’s all smoke…no, let’s just be completely frank here: it’s nothing more than a steaming, stinking pile of their usual horseshit lies.

Ignore the MSM: Here’s What the 2020 Maricopa County Election Audit Actually Says
“The partisan review of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million ballots cast in the 2020 election found a vote count nearly identical to what the county had previously reported,” CNN reported. Like other liberal outlets, CNN focused on the results of the hand-recount part of the audit. As we know, hand recounts may account for slight discrepancies in counting but do not address irregularities or potentially illegally cast ballots.

So, let’s look into what the audit actually says.

By all means, let’s—not so much because this report or any other is going to change a goddamned thing, but just because having a look-see for ourselves is precisely what the NYT, CNNBCCBPBS, and the rest of the Usual Suspects™ would infinitely prefer us NOT do.

Follows, a bullet-point list from the draft report’s summary, and then this.

The audit team faults Maricopa County officials for not cooperating with the audit, which would have resolved many of these obstacles. “By the County withholding subpoena items, their unwillingness to answer questions as is normal between auditor and auditee, and in some cases actively interfering with audit research, the County prevented a complete audit,” the summary explains. “This did not stop the primary goal of offering recommendations for legislative reform to the Arizona Senate, but it did leave many questions open as to the way and manner that the 2020 General Election was conducted. As a result, while many areas of concern were specifically identified, our full audit results validating the 2020 General Election are necessarily inconclusive.”

While the media is claiming that the audit report confirms Biden’s victory, it does not. “There are sufficient discrepancies among the different systems that, in conjunction with some of our findings, suggest that the delta between the Presidential candidates is very close to the potential margin‐of‐error for the election,” the audit summary explains.

Why do these matter? Because, according to the state-certified results, Joe Biden barely won the state by a 10,457-vote margin. The tiny margin of victory in the state-certified results means that these discrepancies are very troubling. There were 42,727 impacted ballots ranked as “high” or “critical” severity—that’s four times the certified margin of victory. If you include “medium” severity discrepancies, there were 53,214 impacted ballots—more than five times the certified margin of victory. Overall, there were 57,734 impacted ballots.

These findings don’t prove fraud, but certainly demonstrate the potential for fraud. And these impacted ballots have not been vetted.

So, has Joe Biden’s victory been proven? Not in the least. The truth is, we’ll never know the truth about how many ballots were impacted. Of course, the mainstream media knows this, which is why, deep down in CNN’s report about the audit, it laments that the draft report “shows that Cyber Ninjas and their subcontractors are still seeking ways to cast doubt on the election,” pointing to the thousands of ballots flagged.

The bottom line: The number of ballots impacted by discrepancies far exceeds Biden’s margin of victory in the state. Both sides of this debate will claim the report validates their position, but in truth, without proper vetting of the impacted ballots, we’ll never know if the election results were legitimate.

The boldfaced bit is the main takeaway from the whole circle-jerk: WE WILL INDEED NEVER KNOW—KNOW FOR ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY CERTAIN, BEYOND ANY DOUBT—WHETHER THE ELECTION WAS STOLEN. Which is NOT the same thing, mind, as saying that we don’t already know well enough.

Election fraud is generally acknowledged to be an extremely difficult thing to prove conclusively; with an electorate as large as ours, as well as a specific power-mad party long accustomed to swindling its way to “victory” without consequence, it becomes almost a practical impossibility. There are myriad ways of stealing paper-ballot elections, which provide the most reliable results. Throw electronic voting machines into the mix and you almost guarantee widespread fraud. Mail-in ballots, with (ahem) flexible deadlines for submission? Stop it, you’re killing me over here.

Further eroding the already-thin hope of establishing the 2020 theft to the courtroom “beyond REASONABLE doubt” standard are some simple facts, among them: the voting machines have long since been reset and/or otherwise tampered with; questionable ballots have been disposed of and/or destroyed; security cam documentation of at-best suspicious activity in swing-state counting rooms has been erased, and more yet, including but not limited to:

…Arizona Senate Audit: Dominion Machines Contained Non-Maricopa County Data — From South Carolina and Washington State

…Dr. Shiva at AZ Senate Hearing: Over 17,000 Total Duplicate Ballots — Votes By Those Who Voted More Than Once in Arizona — 1.5 Times Biden’s Winning Margin

All this dubious activity, remember, from an audit in just one county, in one just one state.

In short, what we have here is typically referred to in criminal-justice circles as “a preponderance of evidence” strongly suggesting systemic jiggery-pokery, a preponderance which in turn strongly suggests its occurance in several states, if not all of ’em. It all makes the MFM’s transparent and predictable stab at nudging public opinion towards bland acceptance of the “Biden won!” lie is risible.

And none of it matters, not in the least. Here’s what does: THEY’RE LIARS. We KNOW they’re liars. That’s as solid a fact as facts come, no more worth discussing further than the proposition that, say, water is wet. That sticking your hand into the heart of a roaring fire is a VERY bad idea. That no matter how furiously you flap your arms, you are not going to fly yourself to a gentle landing after jumping off a cliff. The NYT, CNN, MSDNC, Uniparty politicians, Deep State bureauticks, ALL of them—LIARS. They have confirmed it again and again and again, not just in the context of fraudulent “elections,” but on EVERY issue.

So why in the ever-lovin’ blue-eyed world would any of us believe them NOW? Or, really, EVER AGAIN? About anything at all?

I urge you, one and all: don’t. Just don’t do it. Ignore them instead; pay not a moment’s heed to a word out of their lying mouths. Above all, do NOT allow them the slightest influence over your opinions, your beliefs, or your actions.

Yes, the 2020 “election” was stolen. Yes, American “elections” in general are in no way free, fair, or honest; they haven’t been in years, if they ever were. Yes, participating in them is pure futility, utterly pointless. Yes, the whole system is rotten to the core, to the point that it can never be fixed or restored via traditional, peaceful means. AS ZMan put it, a system that is immune to voting is not going to be fixed by more voting.

The classic, cynical old slogan that holds “If voting could change anything, it would be illegal” has never been more factual or relevant than it is today. It also applies to audits. Biden will be stumbling, bumbling, and mumbling around the White House—just as the overarching charade will continue to grind on—for exactly as long as we put up with it…and not a minute longer.

So lemme see now, would this be the part where it’s GOING around, or COMING around? Asking for a friend, that’s all.

Queensland Australia Police Have Two Weeks to Get Vaccinated or Get Out

That’s it, then. Up with those sleeves, Obersturmführer, and not a whisper of complaint from you either, hein? SCHNELL, SCHNELL!!! Sauce for the goose, and all that jazz.

Chickens coming home to roost? The state of Queensland, Australia, (QLD) is located in the northeastern portion of the nation above the state of New South Wales. The biggest metropolitan areas are Brisbane to the south and Cairns to the north. Like many states, and in alignment with the national plan, Queensland is mandating a vaccination upon citizens if they want to escape the rules and regulations of lockdowns and COVID compliance dictates.

Despite some initial signs of moderation, recently Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has fallen into line with the national government plan and has announced she is fully prepared to be just as big a totalitarian dictator as her neighboring Premiers to the west and south. As a consequence, Premier Palaszczuk has decreed that all Queensland police units must be vaccinated within two weeks or they will lose their jobs.

My attitude henceforth is going to be: A) Any cop, military, medical personnel, or other such-like, here or elsewhere, who refuses the jab at cost of his/her livelihood is all right with me; we’re on the same team, and he/she will have my full-throated support in whatever way I can find to render it; B) Any cops, military, &c who elect to conduct themselves as if surrendering one’s personal sovereignty to tyrannical Authority in order to gain permission to rejoin civil society was somehow a Good and Just Thing are my enemies, no more nor less, and will be considered such until either they or I am dead. Period fucking DOT.

“Peaceful protest has failed”

It had to be tried—it was right and JUST that it be tried, which is a Good Thing and not a Bad Thing—just as all the other preliminary steps did. Even though some of us fully expected each step to fail in its turn, they were by no means a waste of time and effort. As I’ve insisted all along: this is a process, not an event. Although in the early stages bloodshed and combat may arguably have been avoidable, in my view they are now inevitable; once the process has progressed beyond a certain point, it can no longer be stopped—by anyone on either side of it.

So now, we move on to the next step.

Peaceful protests have just about run their course. On Monday a few hundred construction workers turned on their Union bosses for selling them out to big Pharma. Today the mob may turn on police, media or the Government.

So far the lying press have made a big meal whenever a policeman has been bruised when accidentally knocked over by people trying to avoid being pepper sprayed, trampled on by a horse or avoiding being shot with rubber bullets. On Saturday a few police were bruised all at the same time as the crowd broke through their lines. Yet it was only the police themselves who took the time to deliberately hurt people when they were already on the ground. None of the mob actively attacked the police.

The anger and violence on display against the CFMEU shows us that the peaceful protestors are about to be replaced by the angry mob.

I can guarantee you that no one who has been to any of the freedom rallies over the last year, would have been at the CFMEU headquarters throwing bottles and smashing windows. These are the people who played by the rules, didn’t care what was going on politically, as long as they could get by. These were physical men, happy to do physical work and not concern themselves with the world as long as they were free to provide for their families without interference.

But betray this kind of man, don’t expect him to write to the newspaper, bitch on social media or call a lawyer. When his blood is up, nothing will cool it down again until his rage has run its course.

These are the men who will be coming to protests from now on. If these men see a couple of pigs throw an old lady to the ground and then follow up and pepper spray her, don’t expect them to just pull out their phones and call them names. Expect blood.

While I fully share the author’s horror and dread of what is surely to come, I must also say this: Shouldn’t there be blood? What can be the moral argument for turning the other cheek yet again, when the authorities are guilty of committing the atrocities—NOT an overstatement, NOT hyperbole—he cites above, the ones I railed about myself a few nights ago? Is there really no point at which meeting violence with violence is to be deemed appropriate?

The days of people like me giving nice uplifting speeches to nice peaceful people is over. Nice people never change anything. I have failed. We have failed. History must repeat as history inevitably always does.

I do not want violence, I do not encourage it, I will not incite it. I will not initiate it. I simply know from history, that I cannot stop it. It is almost upon us. Be prepared.

I should mention the other incidents Stephen mentions above, I think.

Melbourne Australia Police and Riot Squads Fire Upon Peaceful Protestors While Media Frame COVID Anti-Lockdown Protests as Domestic Extremists
On day three of the Melbourne labor union protests against the brutal COVID lock-downs and forced mRNA genetic experiments, the Victorian government decided to open fire upon the peaceful protestors. The police triggered a ‘no-fly zone’ in the Melbourne metropolitan area to stop media from using their helicopters to record the protests and violent police activity.

While the official motive given by police for the media ban was to block protestors from knowing where the thousands of police were amassing; the background issue of the government wanting to keep the Australian people from seeing police open fire upon their own citizens is transparently obvious. Americans would be wise to pay attention to all facets of how the Australian government is moving violently against their own citizens.

As we have seen in the U.S, there is an alarming alignment between the operatives of the Australian government and the media stenographers who willingly push a “violent extremist” narrative in order to downplay the brutal police tactics being deployed against ordinary working class Victorians. As you watch the first video below, it is well worth remembering these are the same Melbourne police units who took a knee during last years Black Lives Matter protests in Melbourne.

Thousands of heavily outfitted and well-armed jackboots -with armor plated MRAP vehicles in support- confronted the protest groups throughout the Melbourne metro area. The police deployments forced the groups to assemble at Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance where a stand-off took place between the protestors and thousands of police units surrounding them. Once they had the protestors surrounded, the police began tightening the perimeter, until they eventually opened fire with tear gas and rubber bullets.

The riot units were essentially shooting trapped fish in a barrel, while secondary units moved in from the perimeter to arrest those targeted. It is ironic this video was filmed at Victoria’s national memorial honoring the service and sacrifice of Australians in war and peacekeeping.

As you can see from the video on the scene, the protesting group was non violent. The police jackboot tactics however, were extremely confrontational…and all of this is under the premise of “protecting public health and safety.” Think about it…

The situation in Australia has surpassed the merely abominable, and has become well and truly unendurable. But Americans are in no position to indulge in any smugness or condescension over the Aussie plight. Being well along the path to tyranny and total subjugation ourselves, the distinction between us is one not of kind but of degree, and a woefully small degree at that. Sad to say, Oz’s troubles aren’t a warning to us, not anymore. They’re a preview.

Soros-Funded Group Sends Letter to FCC Calling for Murder of Republicans
The group in question is Free Press, which is funded by Soros’s Open Society Foundation, as well as the Center for American Progress, the Tides Foundation, and other far-left organizations. Free Press, whose stated goal is to “reshape media” in the United States, submitted a letter signed by almost 5,000 of its members baselessly accusing the FCC of systemic racism.

Free Press’s letter called for the FCC to “investigate its own history of racism and examine how its policy choices and actions have harmed black people and other communities of color.” But at one point in the letter, the following question was asked: “Are we going to have to shoot Republicans to reclaim our democracy?”

The violent threat was made by a California member named David Lyons, who went on to make even more inflammatory statements as well as false claims, asserting without proof that “racist horsesh** like FOX and the other ultraconservative outlets and Christians” currently own “most of our media.”

Do NOT make the mistake of blithely dismissing these people as if they’re not serious about this, or kidding yourself that they’re merely cowardly, mincing shitlibs who will never, ever muster the stones to make good on their threats. Better by far that Team Liberty immediately begins assembling some targeting lists of their own, prominently featuring the names of each and every one of these vile enemies of freedom at or near the top—right under “Soros,” all his kith and kin, and all who work for and/or with the evil bastard.

So long, SEALs

And thanks for all the, uhh, fish.

Hundreds of U.S. Navy SEALs are on the verge of being undeployable because they are refusing a Pentagon order to take a COVID-19 vaccine, according to a lawyer representing some of them.

R. Davis Younts, a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force reserve who is a military lawyer and is representing several of the special operators as a private attorney, indicated that the number of SEALs involved represents about one-quarter of the nearly 2,500 members of the elite fighting force.

The loss of so many of the special operators, who are on the verge of being placed in a non-deployable status, would severely cripple military readiness because special forces troops in all branches “play an outsized role in modern military operations,” Just the News reported.

Some of the SEALs were told they had until this week to get the COVID jab, leading them to claim a religious exemption since they were out of time to try and find another workaround, Younts said.

“My clients include several Navy SEALs who are a small part of a large group of SEALs and other military members who are being asked to choose between their faith and their ability to serve our nation,” he told Carlson. “They have been told that if they seek a religious accommodation, they likely will no longer be able to serve our country as Navy SEALs and been given an arbitrary deadline to comply with the vaccine mandate.

Well hey, it’s not as if a third-rate power like Amerika v2.0 is ever gonna need ’em for anything again anyhow.

The attorney said that the Defense Department has put its ultimatum in writing that SEALs who are not vaccinated, including any who received a religious exemption or have natural immunity from having contracted the virus already, will not be able to deploy with their assigned teams, which will essentially end their careers as special operators.

Tim Parlatore, an attorney who helped secure the acquittal of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher after he was charged with the murder of an ISIS prisoner, told the outlet he has confirmed that large numbers of SEALS are refusing the vaccine at this time.

“It’s in the hundreds. And it’s not the senior leadership. It’s all the shooters and it is going to have a huge impact,” Parlatore said. “If they continue with this asinine policy you are going to have the complete decimation of the SEAL teams,” he said.

Oh, there’s gonna be a “complete decimation” of a whole hell of a lot more than just that, bub. Compared to what’s just down the road for us all, the woes of a few hundred cornholed SEAL operators are gonna come to seem like some very small beer indeed. But does the Biden junta have yet another, harder slap in the face in store for America’s taken-for-granted Warrior Class, you ask? Three guesses, sez I.

The White House said it “strongly opposes” a provision in the 2022 defense spending bill that would block the Pentagon from dishonorably discharging a service member who refuses to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

A section in the House version of the National Defense Authorization Act would limit military commanders’ options for disciplining those who fail to comply with the vaccination mandate, the White House Office of Management and Budget said in a statement of administration policy Wednesday.

The Pentagon has described the vaccine mandate as a “lawful order” that must be obeyed.

“To enable a uniformed force to fight with discipline, commanders must have the ability to give orders and take appropriate disciplinary measures,” the White House said in a statement.

A DD, of course, deals a crippling, life-wrecking blow to the man hit with one. To wit:

A fucking D.D.?  Oh man, now that is a line that they don’t seem to understand what that means. A D.D. means like zero post-military bennies, in fact it’s like getting a felony on the record. In fact it’s worse than a felony. They fucking lose all veterans’ benefits, and are forbidden from owning a firearm, working for the government and taking out bank loans. Often, they also lose the right to vote and accept federal assistance as a civilian.

Perhaps worse still—as if all that wasn’t bad enough—having a DD on your record makes it damned near impossible to get a decent job—ever again, for the rest of your life. It’s an even blacker mark than being an ex-con is when it comes to that sort of thing. More from CBD:

Bowie Bergdahl received a dishonorable discharge for desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

Typical reasons for dishonorable discharges include murder, rape, treason, etc. These are not trivial crimes, and dishonorable discharges are usually given only after a general court martial. And the consequences don’t stop after separation from the military, since it typically prevents the use of any military benefits, and is considered a felony in civilian life…that means no 2nd Amendment rights! Oh…good luck getting a job!

How very typical of the Biden junta. Strong-arm its opponents, use judicial contortions to punish them for daring to disagree with its edicts, and try to destroy their lives with the power of the federal government.

So servicemen who have done their duty, have served honorably in all other respects, but have a philosophical or religious objection to being forced to accept the CCP flu vaccination will be treated the same way as murderers and rapists and deserters?

Biden and the whores who pull his strings are without honor, have no concept of what honor is, cannot comprehend honorable actions, and simply assume that all Americans who act contrary to the junta’s desires are enemies of the state and should be crushed under the weight of its authority.

That’s the thing, though: we’re ALL “enemies of the State” now—the State as it currently exists, the illegitimate one that insidiously supplanted America That Was in the dead of night, by every manner of sneakthievery and skullduggery. I consider it to be a badge of honor myself, and so should the SEALs and all other soon-to-be-separated military personnel, SOF or otherwise. And with that in mind, there IS a potential silver lining here.

This has to be the stupidest fucking plan EVER implemented by ANY and ALL DotGov and DotMil in history. I mean Holy. Fucking. Shit. Not only are they going to purely gut the Special Operations Community, but then after busting their asses loyally, doing the dirtiest of deed for them, to not only cashier them all, but also essentially fuck them in the ass (with ground glass and sand, sans lube) on the way out the door in the form of “criminalizing them”.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeah. That’ll work. I’m sure that they’ll take that news with a calm, measured response. Well, actually, the few SEALs I’ve interacted with? On a good day they tend to be the sleepy-eyed bored looking dude at the back of the room, who’s usually calculating how much effort it’ll take to kill every one in the aforementioned room. So, yeah, it’ll be calm and measured. But NOT in the way I think these idiots think it’ll happen. Just short of locking the SEALs up, we’re talking for real no-shit trained unmerciful killers.  

And by literally criminalizing “freedom of choice” and “my body, my choice” in DIRECT violation of the Nurnberg codes, whelp, In my fictional world, three SEAL Teams in concert could wreak absolute havoc in an incredibly short period of time. Hell, a Direct Assault of the Capitol by one Team, killing as they go, and the Senate and congress hit simultaneously by another Team? Or even a simple “decapitation strike” on the White House? I mean these guys? The “regular fuzz” to include even the Secret Service are not prepared to do anything other than to become “good Feds” i.e. dead as doornails IF the SEALs decide to turn them into “good Feds”. Literally there ain’t no “quit” in them. I could realistically see it.  

If anything, IF the SEALs went “full retard” I could literally visualize the cops, standing on the stairs of the Capitol Building listening to the gunshots, screams, grunts, explosions, and not doing a fucking thing. Like standing there, waiting. Watching torrents of blood run in rivers down the marble stairs and saying to each other “I ain’t paid near the fuck enough to go in there for anything.” and waiting for the noise to die down. Then, as the noise tapers and stops, a platoon sized element of blood soaked warriors walk out the door, covered in gore, gobbets of flesh, weapons shouldered and smoking, and look at the cops and the leader says something: “Don’t make us come back…” and walks off, unmolested.

Know what’s keeping me awake nights of late? Wondering whether all this fuck-uppery should be thought of as a real-life demonstration of “they know not what they do” in action—just the core, marrow-deep stupidity endemic throughout Mordor on the Potomac in full effect—or not. The hotter the dumpster fire burns, the more it all—ALL of it, I mean, from the Biden Bugout to the border boobery to the fifty-megaton backfire of (Not)Vaxx fascism, the whole damned goatfuck ENTIRE—begins to look to me as if it simply COULDN’T be happenstance, bad luck, or mere incompetence.

No, this HAS to be some sort of a plan, an op they’re running on us. Doesn’t it? I suppose it might barely be possible that these Deep State/Biden junta klowns are indeed this mind-blowingly, hamfistedly D-M-U-B, yes. BARELY. But really now, how LIKELY can that be? Because if they ARE that stupid, they’d have to be unable to tie their own shoes, feed themselves, or come in out of the rain—much less scheme, claw, and back-stab their way up to the highest-level positions in the most powerful, amoral, and blackhearted tyranny the world has ever known.

But if it IS some kind of plan or op, then what on earth do our would-be Masters intend to achieve by it? What is the desired outcome of all this, how do they define success? Is instigating flailing, mindless, widespread and ongoing chaos the whole point?

Whatever the behind-the-scenes truth of the matter may be—whether this is an ingenious plan worthy of The Insidious Dr Fu Manchu himself, or the kind of clumsy anarchy only a rubber-room-wardful of board-certified, one hundred and ninety proof retards could possibly contrive—things are obviously NOT going well for them. For one thing, it’s apparent they’ve been caught on the weak foot by the sudden almighty blast of real resistance to them, which is only going to grow and worsen from here. By tightening their grip on our throats, they create the very conditions that will bring them down. It’s one of history’s most fulsome ironies: that the bane of all tyrants, sooner or later, is tyranny itself.

And that brings us right ’round to the funniest bit of all, the shiniest of silver linings: Behold ye the clown of clowns, in the timeless routine these people bring to my mind first, last, and always.



Yes, I’m laughing at you assholes, you two-bit schoolyard bullies, you clueless fucking imbeciles. Your petty edicts will neither touch me, nor break me, nor induce me to submit. I DEFY YOU, I SCORN YOU, I DESPISE YOU. Today, tomorrow, and forever. Let Melville’s indomitable Captain Ahab say it for me:

Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale; to the last I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart I stab at thee; for hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee.

The nature of government is force

And also theft.

If you break a religious rule, your conscience is supposed to punish you, if you break one of society’s rules, people cluck their tongues or shun you. But government doesn’t deal in intangibles. Break a government rule and it throws you into a reinforced concrete prison with real iron bars. It hires full-time skilled employees, at your expense, to catch you, lock you in, and watch you, plus (if you try to escape) expert marksmen, to shoot you with bullets you paid for…

The government buys all manner of things—and no expense is spared. Government has an unlimited source of income as long as the citizens have an ounce of strength left to work. Government spending is limited only by the boundaries of human greed. No one has ever found the limits of human greed, but our government is constantly exploring the frontiers, forever pushing them further outward. It is hard to believe that the politicians can actually find ways to spend all the money they appropriate, in the time allotted. Our government may have a secret bank account in Switzerland, in case it has to leave the country in a hurry.

Most amazing of all is the way a government gets its funds. It’s a new twist on an old obsession: Our money burns a hole in their pocket. When religion needs money, it passes a collection plate and lets you decide how much to give, if anything. When society needs money, a silver-haired matron rings your doorbell, and you are free to say you gave at the office. The geejy bird [government] has a better system; each year it figures out exactly how much the public will stand for—short of actual armed rebellion—and spends it in advance. Then on April 15 it says, “You pay or go to jail.” Belonging to a government is like having your credit card stolen.

The above, via Francis and somewhat to my astonishment, is from a book by Allan Sherman. Yes, THAT Allan Sherman. Fran’s lead-in:

“Taxation is theft!” rises the cry from thousands of freedom lovers. And it is so, if viewed through the lens of direct comparison. After all, what practical difference is there between the highwayman who points a gun at you and says “Your money or your life,” and the IRS agent who assesses you for some obscene amount he says you “owe,” and tells you to pay or go to prison? It’s just that the latter thief has the majesty of “the law” behind him – and did you get any say in that? I didn’t.

Me neither. Then again, in accordance with its nature, government never asks. It tells. Francis includes a few more examples of government’s thieving nature, to which I would like to append this one:

After the FBI seized Joseph Ruiz’s life savings during a raid on a safe deposit box business in Beverly Hills, the unemployed chef went to court to retrieve his $57,000. A judge ordered the government to tell Ruiz why it was trying to confiscate the money.

It came from drug trafficking, an FBI agent responded in court papers.

Ruiz’s income was too low for him to have that much money, and his side business selling bongs made from liquor bottles suggested he was an unlicensed pot dealer, the agent wrote. The FBI also said a dog had smelled unspecified drugs on Ruiz’s cash.

The FBI was wrong. When Ruiz produced records showing the source of his money was legitimate, the government dropped its false accusation and returned his money.

Ruiz is one of roughly 800 people whose money and valuables the FBI seized from safe deposit boxes they rented at the U.S. Private Vaults store in a strip mall on Olympic Boulevard.

Federal agents had suspected for years that criminals were stashing loot there, and they assert that’s exactly what they found. The government is trying to confiscate $86 million in cash and a stockpile of jewelry, rare coins and precious metals taken from about half of the boxes.

But six months after the raid, the FBI and U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles have produced no evidence of criminal wrongdoing by the vast majority of box holders whose belongings the government is trying to keep.

Some lawyers for box holders say the government’s entire operation is a “money grab” to acquire tens of millions of dollars for the Justice Department through forfeiture. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office denied that and said some of the money it recovers will go to crime victims.

In civil forfeitures, no criminal conviction is required. The government just needs to prove that it’s more likely than not that the money or property it seeks to confiscate was linked to criminal activity.

In warrants authorizing the search and seizure of all “business equipment” at U.S. Private Vaults, U.S. Magistrate Steven Kim placed strict limits on the government, explicitly barring federal agents from searching the contents of each box for evidence of criminal wrongdoing.

In the warrant application, submitted by Assistant U.S. Atty. Andrew Brown, a statement by FBI agent Lynne Zellhart assured Kim that agents’ inspection of each box would “extend no further than necessary to determine ownership” so that belongings could be returned once the government took an inventory of the property seized.

Box holder lawsuits allege that those promises were false and that agents, with no probable cause, intended from the start to rummage through the boxes looking for evidence in the criminal investigation.

Which is, of course, true.

“They pulled a bank heist in broad daylight,” Ruiz said. “They didn’t even apologize.”

Also true. Julie Kelly puts it to us straight.

The incurable incompetence, corruption, and moral rot of the Federal Bureau of Investigation was on full display last week.

Within a 24-hour period, some of America’s toughest female athletes recounted to a Senate committee their painful tales of how the FBI ignored evidence that team doctor Larry Nassar was a sexual predator, and a powerful attorney who colluded with the FBI to concoct one of the most animating chapters of the Trump-Russia collusion fiction was indicted for lying to federal officials.

Overlap in the two cases is more than ironic, it’s illustrative: Michael Sussman, a lawyer for Perkins Coie, the law firm that was working on behalf of the Hillary Clinton campaign, met with the FBI’s general counsel in September 2016 to plant a false story about Donald Trump’s financial ties to a Russian bank. That same month, the Indianapolis Star broke the story of how Nassar, the longtime physician for the USA Gymnastics team, had sexually abused several female gymnasts. One victim filed a lawsuit after the FBI refused to investigate complaints made to at least two FBI field offices in 2015 and 2016.

But the FBI at that time was too preoccupied with protecting Hillary Clinton to deal with a monster who had systematically raped nearly 300 female American athletes. (As Lee Smith recently noted, the FBI “has been used for a quarter of a century as the place to clean up the Clintons’ dirt.”)

Infuriatingly, Wray fired only one agent involved in the Nassar fiasco—and the man was fired the week before the Senate hearing, six years after he first interviewed Maroney. “Someone perhaps more cynical than I would conclude it was this hearing here staring the FBI in the face that prompted that action,” Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said to Wray.

But what ails the FBI cannot be solved with a few firings. It cannot be solved with more congressional oversight or threats to cut federal funding. The moral rot that infects the agency from top to bottom renders the agency unsalvageable.

“This conduct by these FBI agents…who are expected to protect the public is unacceptable, disgusting, and shameful,” Maggie Nichols, the gymnast who first reported Nassar’s crimes to the FBI, told the committee.

Her description, however, applies to the entire FBI—an institution with no shame, no remorse, and no accountability. There’s no fix for that.

Au contraire, Jules, NOT true. I can think of one straightaway—a fix which I positively guarantee will do the job quite nicely, with almost no real effort, inconvenience, or delay. Very inexpensive, too, requiring nothing in the way of equipment other than 1) a box of matches for the HQ building in Quantico; 2) a jerrycan of gasoline and several cans of Sterno; and 3) some salt for the earth on which the accursed building presently stands. Throw in a few lengths of stout chain and some padlocks for the doors to keep any of the bipedal rats inside from escaping and you’ll still be well within the bounds of what most of us would deem a reasonable budget, especially when balanced against the tremendous benefit the project would bring.

For the life of me, I can’t think what on earth we’re waiting for.

Update! Thanks to Aesop for helpfully reminding me in the comments that Fibbie HQ is NOT in Quantico, as I erroneously stated above. Quantico is where the FBI Academy and training center is located. There’s also a CIA training compound and shooting range not far away from there, if I recall correctly. Which I probably don’t; my memory is NOT to be trusted these days, I’m afraid.

Deadly serious

As hard as it is to stop laughing and wrap your head around such an impossibly absurd idea, they really are.

PROJECT VERITAS BOMBSHELL PART 2: FDA Official ‘Blow Dart African Americans’ & Wants ‘Nazi Germany Registry’ for Unvaccinated
This might be one of the most insane videos you will ever watch, and its’ literally a holy hell factor America. In this latest video, an FDA Official is heard saying the unthinkable.

FDA Official: ‘Blow Dart’ African Americans with COVID Vaccine is ‘Where We’re Going…Just Shoot Everyone’ … Calls for a ‘Nazi Germany’ Style ‘Registry’ of Unvaccinated Americans: ‘Think About It Like The Jewish Star’

  • Taylor Lee, FDA Economist: “Go to the unvaccinated and blow it [COVID vaccine] into them. Blow dart it into them.”
  • Lee: “Census goes door-to-door if you don’t respond. So, we have the infrastructure to do it [forced COVID vaccinations]. I mean, it’ll cost a ton of money.
  • But I think, at that point, I think there needs to be a registry of people who aren’t vaccinated. Although that’s sounding very [much like Nazi] Germany.”
  • Lee: “Nazi Germany…I mean, think about it like the Jewish Star [for unvaccinated Americans].”
  • Lee: “I’m gonna go door-to-door and stab everyone [with the COVID vaccine], ‘Oh, it’s just your booster shot! There you go!’”
  • Lee: “So, if you put every anti-vaxxer, like sheep, into like Texas and you closed off Texas from the rest of the world, and you go, ‘Okay, you be you in Texas until we deal with this [pandemic].’”

Hmmm. Let’s just mull that last proposition over a little, shall we?

  • Relocate Team Liberty en bloc to the Republic of Texas
  • Thereby cancelling out the undesirable effects of the recent influx of Califruitopia shitlib locusts
  • Thereby in effect creating a heat-and-eat breakaway state chockablock with hordes of heavily-armed Citizen Soldiers ready, willing, and eminently able to defy and—should FederalGovCo be so foolish as to force the issue—forcibly implement the Second Amendment Solution in the manner and for the purpose specifically laid out by the Founders
  • Thereby providing several other like-minded Southern states de facto encouragement to join the nascent regional revolt themselves
  • Thereby increasing the likelihood of success for the rebels both short- and long-term

Sounds like a br’ar patch I’d not mind in the least being thrown into, Br’er Fox.

Time has come today

Would you rather be a part of the solution…or a part of the problem?

Decide.



Dood say: “Why are doin’ this, mate?”

Cop say: “I’m just as tired of this bullshit lockdown as you are.” Say, “Actually I agree with you guys.” Okay, fine then; all well and good, eh?

EXCEPT. Then he says, I’m doing this because THIS IS WHAT I GET PAID TO DO.

And then his interlocutor cuts to the chase, like a fucking KNIFE: “If you agree with us, then you should drop your gear and step over to our side of the street!” Which, of course, Cop don’t do. WON’T do. Perhaps, CAN’T do. For all sorts of reasons that seemed perfectly good the day before yesterday, but today just don’t quite cut it, and day after tomorrow will look and feel like the lame justifications and evasions they in fact have been all along.

This is it, folks. There is now a line—clear as crystal, unmistakable, indelible. You are either on one side of it—the Liberty And Justice For All side—or you are on the other.

And that’s it. That is absolutely, positively IT. Full stop, end of story. After many, many years of blurring all the lines intentionally; of obscuring the issues; of Fifty Shades Of Grey Man, bloodless and soulless and nondescript, we have come fully back ’round again to pure, no-bullshit, easy to read black and white. Good Vs Evil, Right Vs Wrong, with no comfy middle ground between ’em for wishy-washy waverer-types to quaver on.

So here we all are. No, we don’t like it. We all hoped never to be brought to this awful place; we tried our damnedest to avoid it, to kid ourselves that it could never happen here. As it slowly, gradually became more apparent that the conflict was real and could be forestalled only so long, we told ourselves it was still many years off yet. As the sand went right on sifting down to the bottom section of Destiny’s Own Hourglass, we told yourselves “not in my lifetime, at least.”

Well, hate to tell ya and all. Really I do. But guess what.


DECIDE.

Election theater

America’s Ghost Government.

One reason the imperial capital revolted when Trump was elected is he was a break in the long evolutionary chain. By 2016, the people who actually run the government had come to see the president as window dressing to appease the masses. The real work of governance was done by the thousands of people who live, work and socialize in the world’s largest small town. From their perspective, he was a threat to their democracy, because their democracy had become one party rule.

A good current example of how things really work in American democracy is the case against former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann. The judge in the case is Christopher Cooper, who is married to attorney Amy Jefress. She represents key players in the FBI Russia hoax like Lisa Page. Sussman’s lawyers are long time legal insiders serving the Democratic Party. The Lawfare Group, which was deeply involved in the Russia hoax, is helpfully providing commentary to the media.

The reason that there could never be a legitimate investigation of the FBI plot to overturn the 2016 election was everyone involved is connected to everyone who would investigate or prosecute the case. Washington is a separate society that is independent of the country over whom it rules. Again, if you imagine it as a secret club, politics makes a lot of sense. The part we see, campaigns, politicians, elections, is controlled by the part we never see, the semi-permanent ruling class.

There is also reason to suspect that many of the people working in politics are just as gullible as the people voting Republican. The FBI-organized protest last weekend looks like it was more for the people inside the wire than outside the wire. They wanted the rank and file in Congress to see the storm troopers cracking skulls and flag waving barbarians screaming for the cameras. The whole thing was an amusing flop, but it kept Ocasio-Cortez up at night, which was the purpose.

Long ago, Pat Buchanan observed that local politicians are often quite sensible, which is how they get bumped up to the House of Senate. The people supporting them hope they will be a sane voice for their interests. When they get to Washington, they quickly go native and become just another voice of the ruling class. Buchanan wrote it off to social influence, which is certainly true. The newly minted Congressman is quickly socialized into the culture and is then assimilated into the Borg.

Another reason though is the shadow government. These vast global consulting firms that operate in every western capital but are based in Washington operate like a secret society. They produce the people who get appointments in every administration, and they produce the candidates for spots on the bench. They don’t write regulations and legislation, but they develop and curate the people who do. They have evolved a system that is immune to the virus of elections.

What this means is that voting has become pointless. A system that is immune to voting is not going to be fixed by more voting. In fact, voting provides a false sense of legitimacy to the system. The dynamic of liberal democracy is that voting not only strengthens the system, making it even more resistant to elections, but it also encourages more voting. The more that people participate, the less their voice matters and the more shadowy the true ruling elite pulling the strings.

As long as American “elections” remain the corrupt dumbshow they are at present, “voting” will remain nothing more than a mug’s game.

“Every day!”

An example and an inspiration to us all.

Anti-Vaccine Protesters Clash With Police In Melbourne, Australia, For The 2nd Day
It’s been a violent few days in Melbourne, Australia, where construction workers and other demonstrators are clashing with police as they protest the government’s COVID-19 vaccine requirements.

Follows, some archetypical NPR-shitlib mumble-mumble about the deadly dangerous and ultra-deadly most dangerous of all dangerous “Delta variant” and how, horror of horrors, “Some 13% of the state’s active COVID-19 cases are linked to construction sites, according to local media,” gaspohsweetJesuspleasehelpuswe’reallgonnadiiiieee. Hilarious as all that stale flapdoodle is, though, this is when we get to what I consider to be the most uproarious bit of all.

After the government closed down tearooms at work sites, some workers took their lunch breaks outside on Friday. They set up tables and plastic chairs in multiple intersections in central Melbourne, blocking roads and holding up traffic.

OH. HELL. YEAH. Now THIS the kind of thing I’ve been waiting on tenterhooks to see, people. Good on ya, mates, and two thumbs up for that one.

On Monday, people gathered outside the headquarters of the prominent Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union to protest the mandate, chanting and yelling before attempting to storm the building.

Angry protesters threw bottles and smashed loudspeakers, according to local media reports.
Riot police deployed on the scene allegedly used rubber bullets and pepper spray to disperse crowds, the BBC reported, adding that the headquarters building was damaged and “several people” were arrested in the process.

The union later issued a statement condemning the violence “in the strongest possible terms,” noting that an unspecified number of people were injured by violent acts, including the throwing of bottles. But it also distanced itself from the protesters, attributing the actions to “extremists or people manipulated by extremists.”

“This crowd was heavily infiltrated by neo-Nazis and other right wing extremist groups and it is clear that a minority of those who participated were actual union members,” the statement said.

Others have alleged that neo-Nazis and anti-vaccination groups organized on encrypted social media platforms before arriving at the protest in “hi-vis” clothing to look like construction workers.

Yeh, yeh, yeh, whatevs. I’m a Nazi, you’re a Nazi, he’s a Nazi, she’s a Nazi, wouldn’t you like to be a Nazi too. In fact, it looks like absolutely everybody is a Nazi according to these puling pissants except themselves—ie, the self-same people currently deploying all the coercive muscle of a tyrannical Überstate to force its subjects into participating—against their will and at significant risk of bodily harm—in a shady medical experiment that simply reeks of one Herr Doktor Josef Mengele.

Who, y’know, was a Nazi.

Bill Shorten — the former opposition leader and current member of Parliament who serves as shadow minister for the national disability insurance scheme and for government services — said in a TV interview that some protesters were construction workers while others were “fake tradies.”

“There is a network of hard-right, man-baby Nazis,” he said, “people who just want to cause trouble…They want to complain about the vaccination, and they deserve to get the full force of everything that’s coming their way.”

Right back atcha, Slick. The playing around is over, and all that tough-guy talk of yours threatening “the full force of everything that’s coming their way” works in both directions. As those crazy-ass kids say nowadays: Keep fucking around and find out.

According to The Guardian, “protesters dressed as construction workers” assaulted officers, smashed police car windows, hurled bottles and stones and damaged other property.

It counted some 1,000 to 2,000 demonstrators, mostly young men, marching across the city and shutting down a major bridge while chanting “f*** the jab” and “every day,” which the newspaper says is a reference to a “promise to keep protesting daily until Melbourne’s Covid restrictions are lifted.”

Citing police, it says 62 protesters were arrested, and three police officers and one journalist were injured. Officers deployed pepper balls, foam baton rounds, smoke bombs and stinger grenades, Victoria’s chief police commissioner told the paper.

I’d say a casualty count of three pigs and one shitlib journo amounts to a fair-dinkum first round, a solid start that can be built upon. Fingers crossed over here for plenty more, and worse, until you arrogant fascist fucks have all been stuffed securely back into the proper box, by any means necessary.

Angelo Codevilla is dead

A great thinker, a gifted writer, a grievous loss.

RIP: Angelo Codevilla, R.I.P.

Codevilla, the historian of spycraft and powerful analyst of American political and social trends, has died. It is difficult for many commentators to see beyond the current news cycle. But Codevilla, because he could see America as it is presently, could also see into the future. Here in National Review in 2009, he predicted a populist-type figure, one that could unite the “Country Party,” could eventually come to lead the Republicans.

Far be it from me to suggest that Sarah Palin should be or is likely to be our next president. She has not shown the excellence of cognition or of judgment that would recommend her ahead of other possible candidates, nor does her path to the presidency look easy.

But as the nation celebrates the anniversary of the revolution of 1776, every presidential hopeful should realize that in the next election Sarah Palin — or someone like her — could be the vehicle for another revolution. The distinctions between Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives, are being overshadowed by that between what we might call the “Court party” — made up of the well-connected, the people who feel represented by mainstream politicians who argue over how many trillions should be spent on reforming American society, who see themselves as potters of the great American clay — and the “Country party” — the many more who are tired of being treated as clay.

Read the whole thing.

The excerpt and included link (not transcribed here, natch) is from/to NRO, so use your own discretion concerning Ed’s closing advice.

I must say, I’m taken a bit aback at how little reportage I’m seeing out there on what I consider to be a quite momentous event. I dunno, maybe it’s just me and my sadly lacking search-engine manipulation skills. The only further information I’ve run across so far is this:

He was walking when he was struck by a drunk driver. He died of his injuries at the hospital.

Codevilla had just recovered from covid. And then a drunk driver killed him.

That’s from Ace, and is pretty thin on the details. Perhaps we’ll see more of the story soon.

In any event, Codevilla was certainly one of the bona fide giants, no two ways about it. Everyone here will surely know of his best-known flash of inspiration and insight: the seminal 2010 American Spectator article wherein he postulated the division of the FUSA into the Ruling Class and the Country Class. It’s long and in-depth, but this ‘graph provides a pretty fair summation:

The ruling class’s appetite for deference, power, and perks grows. The country class disrespects its rulers, wants to curtail their power and reduce their perks. The ruling class wears on its sleeve the view that the rest of Americans are racist, greedy, and above all stupid. The country class is ever more convinced that our rulers are corrupt, malevolent, and inept. The rulers want the ruled to shut up and obey. The ruled want self-governance. The clash between the two is about which side’s vision of itself and of the other is right and which is wrong. Because each side — especially the ruling class — embodies its views on the issues, concessions by one side to another on any issue tend to discredit that side’s view of itself. One side or the other will prevail. The clash is as sure and momentous as its outcome is unpredictable.

No better proof of the 20-20 acuity of Codevilla’s political vision is likely to be found than that one paragraph, moreso when you consider how it’s even more relevant and apt today than it was back then. Bill expresses the severity of our loss best:

This is an absolute tragedy. Give the garbage refugees from various progressive and liberal fascist dumpster fires masquerading as high intellects, we can ill afford to lose the man who was, in my opinion, the leading American public intellectual.

His work has guided my thinking since his pieces on the awful way GWB was (not) waging war in the Middle East (No Victory, No Peace was the most important one, as I recall), on through his dissection of the American Ruling Class, to his current work on the emerging Patriotic American (Trump) movement.

He has been a shining light in the gathering darkness.

I shall miss him. And so will America.

We most certainly will. The old saw asserting that “No man is indispensable” may be true enough, in the strictly literal sense. But if Angelo Codevilla wasn’t indispensible, he came closer to it than just about anybody else I can think of.

Rest ye well, sir.

“The most terrifying map in the world”

That’s what Chris MacIntosh over at the International Man blog calls it, and I won’t even try to argue.

That’s quite a dramatic reversal, wouldn’t ya say? Gee, looks like maybe shutting down an entire national economy indefinitely under a false pretext might not have been such a bright idea after all. The same might be said of offering tax breaks to effectively incentivize US corporations to export all American manufacturing capacity to a hostile foreign dictatorship, too. Well, unless your real aim all along wasn’t maintaining US prosperity, security, and international influence like you claimed during election-year stump speeches, that is.

But hey, that’s all just crazy talk. Please ignore my momentary lapse into batshit-nuts conspiracy theorizing, ‘kay?

BRM Peter nutshells it for us.

If ever there was proof of the old saying that “what goes around, comes around”, it’s there. China is basically out to dominate – and, if possible, humiliate – any nation that won’t dance to its tune. That includes the United States.  The map above shows that, on balance, China is doing just that. Its commercial and industrial influence now exceeds that of the USA on the world scene.

The worst thing of all, from an American perspective, is that our business leaders – our oligarchs, for want of a better word – deliberately worked towards this. They’re the ones who moved manufacturing offshore, seeking greater profits by making goods in markets with lower wage and transport costs. They built the factories that China is using today to extend its influence, basically handing to the Chinese the commercial hegemony they now exploit. America is now left holding the short stick, because we no longer have the industrial and commercial might that was the foundation for our influence abroad. We handed that to China on a plate, and the Chinese have taken full advantage. Don’t blame them for that, either – we would have done exactly the same thing if our positions were reversed.

So, when you look at the problems we’re currently encountering with a very screwed-up supply chain, consider them in the light of that map. That’s why we’re experiencing them – because three-quarters of our supply chain is out of our control, and very much in China’s control. To paraphrase President Obama, “we built that”. It’s our fault, on a national scale, for allowing our barons of commerce and industry to sell our economic prosperity out from under us for a mess of pottage. However, you’ll never get our politicians to admit that, or accept any responsibility for it. Being the finest politicians money can buy, many of them were long since bought by Chinese “contributions”. There’s plenty of evidence of that; I’ll leave you to look it up for yourselves.

There oughta be some way to see that the ProPols and their hand-in-glove corporate partners in crime pay a price for what they’ve done to us, if only we could think of what it might be.

Ocker uprising

Not a moment too soon.

Massive Development in Victoria, Australia – Major Trade Union CFMEU Goes To War Against Union Leadership and Politicians Over Mandated Vaccinations – Premier Daniel Andrews Shuts Down Industry
The Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) has declared war against their own leadership, John Setka (left, circled), for not fighting against the mandatory COVID vaccine.  As he was attempting to hunker down in his office headquarters, union boss John Setka physically came under attack from his own union membership over his political relationship with Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews.

This is the U.S. equivalent of AFL-CIO members launching a violent uprising against former union President Richard Trumka; and then Trumka running to Joe Biden for help and protection from his own membership.

The CFMEU members are the heavy-hitting blue-collar construction and dirty fingernail workers, and the leadership of the CFMEU are the thug-like mobsters who run the union.

Just like the AFL-CIO or UAW in America, the union leadership in Australia is politically corrupt and disconnected from the members they serve. Earlier today (AU-time), the union members organized to confront the union leadership.

When CFMEU union boss John Setka tried to weasel his way out of the confrontation things turned violent. The members have had enough of the lockdowns, ridiculous COVID regulations and now the forced vaccinations. Setka shouted, “What do you want me to do, shut it down?” The members erupted in cheers. Yes, that is exactly what they want.

The trade union members recognize their leadership is politically corrupt and supporting the totalitarian rules of the government. After things turned violent, Setka was forced to retreat to his office and position his foot-soldiers at the doors to protect him. The members launched a full frontal assault on the building, smashing windows, throwing bottles and forcing Setka’s thugs to run back inside.

Trapped and under assault from his own members, John Setka called for police and riot squads to rescue him from his own members. The riot police showed up in their ninja turtles uniforms and started firing rubber bullets and tear gas at the angry union members in the crowd. The workers fought back as hundreds of police units arrived to secure the building and attempt to form a defensive ring around the CFMEU building. Suffice to say, John Setka and Premier Daniel Andrews clutched their pearls and called the angry union workers a violent mob.

In an attempt to save face and give the appearance of having control over the situation; in a transparently political move; Premier Daniel Andrews then announced a retaliatory shutdown of the Victorian construction industry for two weeks. Essentially Daniels is trying to lockdown the CFMEU members, before the CFMEU members could strike.

Daniels and Setka know the members have the power in this scenario – so, they are trying to avoid the political optic of having the construction industry workers strike and lock down the economy, by being proactive and shutting down the industry. It is a face saving maneuver meant to give the illusion of power. However, shutting down the industry is what the union members wanted Union President Setka to do.

Is that all, you ask? No, it most certainly is NOT all.

Lawrence Person tells it true:

It’s not enough to break through police lines. Mobs need to track the politicians that imposed these lockdowns to their homes, bust down their doors, drag them forcibly into the street, and then tar and feather them.

For starters.

Yes, indeedy. R For Resistance elaborates.

“But what can we do“? You can go out in the streets to show the monsters behind this global coup that you will not take anymore of their shit. You can fight for your rights, Human dignity for the future of your kids. This is how it’s done.

Melbourne, Australia, 18.09.2021, the People crushed the fascist regime thugs line.

And don’t think one second that these pigs didn’t deserve it!

That last line refers to a specific incident in Victoria which is one of the most abhorrent, bestial, and reprehensible acts of fascist thuggery I can remember seeing: an elderly woman lying on her back on the street, totally helpless, evincing not the most infinitesimal trace of credible threat towards…the two evil, subhuman pigs who are firing multiple streams of pepper spray directly into her face.

Deserve it? Yes. Yes, they most certainly do. In fact, getting a taste of some for-real Street Justice, being knocked ass over teacups and stomped flat as the angry mob of citizenry ignores every command issued by those goons to cease and desist, is the very LEAST they deserve.

The pic below that one features a close-up of this poor woman, who looks like somebody’s harmless old Gramma. Which I’m sure she is. The caption:

2 pathetic assholes gasing a defenceless lady on the floor that could be their mother. Why are animals like these allowed to disgrace their country?

So now that you’ve seen all that, the murderously-furious screed I’m about to uncork won’t seem over the top. Frankly, though, I don’t much care if it does.

Animals certainly fits, although it wasn’t merely “their country” they disgraced, but humanity itself. That these two rançid curs could find it within themselves to even think of dowsing with Hellfire-juice an innocuous old woman who would surely have conjured, in the minds of better men, memories of home-baked cookies and joyous childhood Christmases at the home and hearth of their own dear Grandmas is all the confirmation needed of the dominance of pure evil in the mental makeup of these two excrescences. Anyone possessed of the slightest trace of compassion and conscience would have checked fire and passed on by rather than damn themselves to Hell’s hottest corner the way they did.

But no. Incomprehensible as it must be to every decent, non-evil human being, the humane thing is of course NOT what they chose to do. Maybe this grotesque contravention of everything the words “police officer” used to mean to the general public had its roots in the increasing estrangement of LEOs from said public. Perhaps they hold a sick, perverse misperception of what police work ought and ought not to entail. Whatever the case may be, this is a mindset that of right ought to render every cop who indulges it totally unfit to work in the field. Worse yet, whatever convoluted mind-path these sadistic thugs had to walk in order to get themselves to a place where such an attack seemed kosher and in order to them is a much darker omen—because any man capable of following such a path isn’t just unfit to be a cop. The decent, the honorable, and the civilized tolerates his presence among them at their own peril.

Update! A timely reminder.

Herschel steps up to put the cherry on top.

Interestingly, this tweet by someone named Evelyn Rae on the incident evoked the following reaction: “A very dark day in Australian history. I can’t believe it has got to this point.”

Funny, that. It’s just the opposite of my reaction. I think it’s one of the prouder moments in Australian history, especially after gun confiscations.

The only thing that would have made it prouder would have been for them to have shot the cops.

Does that surprise you? Remember. The pols are tyrants, and the cops are their willing enforcers. They have kidnapped people and sent them to concentration camps, and kidnapped children without permission or knowledge of their parents and taken them off for forcible vaccinations.

Tyrants and their enforcers.

Just so. The way I see it, Evelyn has it exactly backwards: the “very dark day” was the day Aussies—and Americans—sat back in passive denial and allowed the tyrants to take their liberty without a murmur of protest, in the name of false security. The day they rose up to reclaim their stolen freedom, their God-given rights, and their dignity from the oppressor was actually the day when the darkness began to lift.

FBI rally disappoints

A report on this weekend’s sparsely-attended GlowniggerPalooza 2021 from the sole remaining media outfit you can trust now.

FBI Rally In D.C. Ends Without Incident
WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Federal Bureau of Investigation is disappointed by the low attendance at the D.C. rally they organized for Trump supporters today.

In spite of the FBI’s best efforts to lure a bunch of angry MAGA insurrectionists to the Capitol this weekend, only a few hundred FBI agents dressed as MAGA insurrectionists showed up.

“Ivermectin! Get your hot, fresh Ivermectin HEEEERRRRE!” cried one agent selling bootleg Ivermectin tablets from Tractor Supply Company. Unfortunately, he only made a couple of sales to a few other FBI agents from other field offices he didn’t recognize.

“Greetings, fellow Trump supporters,” said another agent. “Let’s go insurrect the government, shall we, fellas? Maybe kidnap Gretchen Whitmer? Whadaya say boys? Say—I sure do love racism!” He was then immediately tackled by three other FBI agents who dragged him to an unmarked van.

Another field agent passed out flyers for a “Super Secret Satanic Pedophile Meeting”, but was sad to find there were no takers, except one lady named Hillaria Clintonania.

Aww, too bad. Better luck next time, Fibbies…oops, ‘scuse me, “patriots.”

Lonely Boiz update! Since so few of us showed up for them to play with this time ’round, all they had left was to play with themselves.

Confirmed: Armed Man Arrested at J6 Rally is Federal Officer – US Attorney’s Office in DC Will Not Prosecute

No, of course they won’t.

A federal law enforcement officer was arrested carrying a gun at Saturday’s rally at the U.S. Capitol billed to support the suspects charged in January’s insurrection but will not be prosecuted.

The 27-year-old New Jersey man is an officer with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. He was arrested by Capitol Police for illegally possessing a gun on the grounds of the Capitol after people in the crowd reported seeing him with a handgun and notified nearby officers.

Generally, under federal law, law enforcement officers are given reciprocity to legally carry their weapons in other states, even those with restrictive gun laws. But the law has an exemption for government property or military bases where it is illegal to carry a gun, like the U.S. Capitol.

A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington said prosecutors were “not moving forward with charges” but did not provide additional information about the decision.

Two law enforcement officials said the officer was not at the rally in any official capacity.

Trust us on that. No, really, you guys!

Bottom line: As the US has now inarguably completed the transition from the Dysfunctional Republic category into straight-up Illegitimate Tyranny status, Patriots should consider showing up at only one final rally, protest, or mass gathering of any kind held in or near Mordor On The Potomac, capital city of the Occupation Government. And that last time, all attendees of said rally, protest, whatever, should NOT forget to bring the guns along. Until that day arrives, there is no longer a single, solitary reason for any Real American to risk showing his face anywhere near the God-forsaken place…and one helluva lot of excellent reasons NOT to.
