The Edifice Commences to Crack

Trends continue until they don’t. It is just the way things always have been. When you look at the broad sweep of human history and the story of cultures and civilizations it is actually easy to lose sight of the fact that, at some point, things stopped working. It all fell apart.

Think about a 20 year old Roman in 390 AD. Theodosius is on the throne. The Empire is unified. Sure, there are problems, but things seem ok. The administration rolls along. Taxes are collected. Laws enforced. Sure, there is a worrying drop in population and it is getting harder and harder to find recruits for the Army. And, yeah, there doesn’t seem to be enough money to fully maintain the roads and aqueducts, but things are patched up and held together. Life is fine.

Be the time that Roman turns 40, Alaric is sacking Rome. That quick. It was like a lightening flash to contemporary observers. It was unimaginable that the Eternal City, inviolate for 800 years, could fall to an enemy. But, fall it did…as a helpless Roman government looked on, and didn’t really care that Rome fell.

What we’re now experiencing is that sort of thing. It appears that all is fairly ok and none of us envision any sort of collapse…but the roads aren’t very well maintained and urban sanitation is in decline and we’re even having some trouble getting water to everyone and keeping all the lights on. It is not quite yet bad. It is all holding together. But the edifice sways and cracks and the keen ear can hear the foundations crumble.

Why is it like this? Well, to get into our current context: we have a massive transportation crisis. For a variety of reasons – mostly government actions in the United States and around the world – goods are not getting to market. We have, in our government, a Department of Transportation which is specifically charged with this issue: making sure transport runs smoothly. It is run by the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana who, as far as I can tell, has never been responsible for transporting anything. The kicker: he’s been on paternity leave for the past two months as this completely foreseen crisis emerged. What we have is a very complex system of living which requires continual attention from people well versed in how it all works. We don’t have that. And we likely, for the most part, don’t even know we don’t have it. We just assume that someone in there knows what to do. Just as, I’m sure, the average Gaius on the street in Rome assumed that someone would make sure an Army was available to stop Alaric.

NASA people were in their 20’s and 30’s when we went to the Moon. Now NASA people are in their 60’s. How many young structural engineers are there? How many 17 year olds being taught how to weld in an apprenticeship? How sure are you that if there was an explosion at your local power plant – caused by negligence at the plant as the people there weren’t well versed enough to see the problem coming – that there are sufficient people with knowledge on how to rebuild it? And what happens is such a disaster strikes two cities at once? What happens if the people who do know decide that they’ll look after their own and to hell with strangers?

We’re in a very bad way and worse – because not only do we lack sufficient people who know, we’re also deliberately creating things which weaken the resiliency of the system. Building windmills instead of nuke plants. Building high speed rail when what’s needed is a newer and better interstate. Telling people to stop watering their lawns when we need dams and aqueducts. And all systems can stand the strain right up until they can’t. The bridge rated for ten ton traffic is fine until that 10.01 ton vehicle arrives.

Can we stem the tide? We won’t know unless we do. We certainly can’t stem it with the current leadership. But will new leadership – even extremely Trumpist leadership – make a difference? I don’t know. I had a small back and forth on Twitter where a guy – and he’s a really good guy – was arguing that the squares should just chill while the out there do their thing. It immediately struck me as false and I pointed out that, no, you can’t do that. If you are one of the Bohemians, then your moral duty is to curb yourself so that the normal – who do the actual work of life – can get on with their business. That, in fact, a society is morally justified in banning and punishing odd behavior. Taking it further, I realized that allowing slums and bums to be as they are is a crime against humanity – because it is a crime against those who do. The man or woman who makes, mines or grows things needs order, cleanliness and public decency. They can’t function where bums are allowed to defecate on the streets while purple-haired weirdos smash windows for “justice”. Anything – even the slightest thing – which causes distress for those who make, mine and grow must be prohibited and maximum force must be applied to anyone who still wants to cause the doers a problem.

And, in the end, that is what will be applied to those who won’t do their duty: maximum force. It all turns on when it will happen – before or after our societal collapse. That is, and to put it crudely, will we bust heads as we insist everyone cuts their hair, pulls up their pants and get a job before or after things fall apart? It would be better if it was before – repairing what we have is a lot easier than rebuilding what used to be (last time we had to rebuild is was about a 500 year process). All this drivel about being genderfluid, an “influencer”, an aspiring transblack poet or what have you will be tossed aside. Society is for men and women and it functions because men and women do their duty…and everyone who won’t conform to the norm will find that nonconforming is no longer an option.

We’ll find out soon which way we go.

The Lies We Contend With

When Andrew Yang announced he was leaving the Democrat party, I commented to him that nearly everything he believed was a lie, but also noting that huge amounts of what I used to believe were lies as well. That I now could see the whole system of lies, right and left, which have been used to keep we, the people compliant. Then someone asked me when did the lies start?

To be sure, there have been lies since the Garden. But I do believe what we’ve dealt with these past decades is unique in human history: a whole series of lies maintained at all costs by people who do know better. And while it grew out of a host of factors, I pinpoint the need for a system of lies to the Korean War, specifically to the Truman Administration decision to not seek victory.

We were all told – and we all believed – that when Truman fired MacArthur it was the right and brave thing to do. That MacArthur was off the ranch and threatened not merely a Third World War, but the very Constitutional structure of the United States. Like all good lies, this had a kernel of truth: as a military officer, MacArthur was bound to obey the orders of his civilian Commander in Chief. But that bit of truth was used to blind us to the fact that in a cold blooded and cruel manner, Truman and his Administration had decided that people would continue to die, with no hope of victory, until the Communists decided to end the killing. That was the issue. It always was the issue. And it isn’t even mentioned, for the most part. When it is, it is quickly passed over. No one wants to really consider this. Most of the people who died in the Korean War – Koreans, Chinese and Americans – died after Truman made his decision. They died fighting it out on an arbitrary line of no moral or strategic value. Truman did this. And then slept soundly at night. So did the Defense officials and the generals. The soldiers on the line slept less soundly. And they died. Truman’s decision wasn’t made to spare lives, but merely to sustain the decision he had made to enter the war when he had lost the will to win the war. He lied to the American people in order to save his political prospects.

Sound familiar?

When the Chinese intervened we had two morally acceptable courses open to us: fight it out to victory, or to capitulate. We chose the immoral path: keep fighting, but only to provide cover for a coward’s decision to neither win nor quit. Rely on it: they sized it up. They knew that with our absolute command of the sea and our aerial superiority that the Chinese could not force us all the way out of Korea. They could calculate: this many dead and wounded per month, this large a pool of draftees to send: presto, we could sustain the line indefinitely. All it would take is lots of people – mostly poorer people the leaders never met – dying. The Western Front is held up as the immoral waste of lives, but it wasn’t: as many mistakes as the Allies made, their goal was always total victory. The lives weren’t to be expended to no point. In Korea, they were to be expended pointlessly. And to do this, they had to lie. They had to tell us that if we went for victory, it would lead to WWIII as the Russians would go to war with us and we’d all be nuked. End of the world! If we don’t have Johnny from Akron and Li from Shanghai blow each other to bits over and over again, we’re all gonna die!!!!

Too bad for Johnny and Li: but, hey, at least 24 hour round the clock nuclear holocaust was avoided.

Flaw in the theory: Russia only exploded her first nuke in 1949 and the best they had for a strategic bombing was the TU-4, a reverse engineered B-29 which was incapable of reaching most of the United States from Soviet air bases. Even we didn’t have a real nuclear bomber until the introduction of the B-36 in 1948. Nuclear war as in total wipe of humanity simply wasn’t in the cards during any point of the Korean War. Additionally, there was very little chance that an aging Stalin would bring his country into another World War as Russia was still rebuilding from WWII (it would be the mid-60’s before Russia was fully recovered from the destruction of WWII).

In short, a cruel calculation was made to not win as that seemed more difficult and then a series of lies were generated to explain why we wouldn’t win but the dying would keep going. That, in my view, is when our government became a web of lies…and when all sides of the political spectrum (except a few put down as kooks) became wedded to the web of lies.

In the end, we built up a massive, national security State in service to this concept that at any moment now the Russians would nuke us and so we had to have a massive nuclear force on hair trigger alert, a gigantic Army ready to fight (but not win!) anywhere in the world and a whole bunch of what we were doing kept secret from the people, who were to be monitored and manipulated. By the 1960’s, in my view, the thing was feeding on itself. Just getting ever more crazy and using ever larger amounts of BS to justify itself. Because after a while, people were invested in it. Defense contractors, think tanks, universities, media companies: a whole host of individuals and institutions essentially made their living by sustaining the fiction that we can’t win a war, but we needed a massive military and secret police (FBI, CIA, NSA) to fend off defeat. Nobody was ever allowed to do two things which would cut to the chase:

Drive the Marxists out of America

Directly confront the USSR with a “war or quit” ultimatum.

We couldn’t do these things because they would solve the problem. Getting rid of the American Marxists would end the internal threat and challenging the Soviets to fight or back off would either get them to back off, or get them to fight (they would have backed off: the balance of forces all through the Cold War was overwhelmingly in our favor – they knew it, and so did we).

We had to pretend that having Che Guevara wanna-bees in our schools and bureaucracies was just the price of freedom. Even so-called Conservatives said we had no right to push such people out. We had to allow America to be flooded with a series of corrosive, anti-human Marxist ideologies which sapped our will and warped our sense of right and wrong. And we had to do this simply to sustain lies. In this case, the lie that if we didn’t let our enemies subvert us, our enemies would win. And still all based on the first lie: the Korea Lie – that we can’t win a stand up fight to simply end this once and for all.

Here in 2021, it is all self-sustained. We’re not even allowed to win a fight with rag tag Islamist militias. And we’re appointing Marxist economists to positions in our government.

Reject it all: reject all the lies. You don’t have to fund your enemies. You don’t have to sustain the National Security State. You don’t have to protect those who hate you and want you enslaved. You are sane. You want law and order, sound economics, your people come first: these are normal, sane attitudes and anything against them has to go down. Your laws are for you: for sanity. Not for them, the insane. The liars. The laws do not protect evil. They do not foster insanity. Anyone who says they do is lying to you. Ignore them and take what is yours by right: take back, that is, your citizenship in the Republic and insist that the Republic exist for you, not for those who hate you and lie to you and wish to plunder you.

Getting that time of year where I like to have pea soup – and what I like to have with my pea soup is muenster cheese. Sure, not the most popular sort of cheese in the world, but also not some rare commodity. No muenster cheese in the grocery store. No beef bologna, either.

Our Ruling Class and the corporate class are deliberately making America a land of shortages so that prices will go higher and we’ll get used to being poor. They hate American prosperity. Makes us independent and willing to fight…they want us all barely scraping by so that our only concern is daily survival.

Pudding Brain is having great difficulty getting his agenda passed – mostly because the Left is acting like they won a 1932-style victory last year and have been given carte blanche to do whatever they want. They have run up against the reality that when you only have 50 Senators and some of yours are extremely vulnerable, you can’t do anything unless you get the other side on board. They’ve done nothing to get the GOP on board (and it wouldn’t be hard: just throw us a bone or two) and so Cocaine Mitch has said, “work it out amongst yourselves”. We’ll see how they do.

Sinema and Manchin are ever more the Bad Guys in this morality play of the Left: they are furious the pair won’t go along. But as I noted before, SineManchin is just the front for a larger body of Senate Dems who want nothing to do with this. But, even if they were, the reality is that Manchin represents a State that went 40 points for Trump last year and even putting the most rosy Dem picture on AZ, it is a swing State. Anyone who goes too far Left is going to lose. Manchin has point blank said he’s not a liberal, never has been. Sinema is more of the Left than Manchin, but she’s also not entirely easy to categorize and, worse for Dems, she doesn’t seem to care what anyone thinks of her. Most pols who go to DC become desperate for the approval of other pols and power players. Sinema doesn’t seem to have this psychosis. Don’t, of course, trust her on policy – but our job is to work with her where we can.

New Zealand has had some of the tightest restrictions in the world since Covid began. Now, cases are spreading…and their reaction is to impose even tighter restrictions. Its almost like the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing hoping for a different result.

Over in Australia they are essentially under a military dictatorship – and Big Tech has taken to censoring on the sly any videos of Australian cops beating the sh** out of people to keep them healthy. Make no mistake about it: the Global Ruling Class is, indeed, Global. They are all alike everywhere. The only reason every government (outside a few run by people who are sane – such as Brazil) isn’t treating us like the CCP treats the Chinese is that they don’t think they can. Yet. Their goal is to do to us exactly what has happened in China. They don’t want any of us peons pestering them further.

Trans weightlifter named female sportswomen of the year. This is really on you ladies: just how long will you put up with this?

Playboy’s October cover features a man. We’re supposed to be all shocked about this. Mostly, we’re bored. But, also, talk about losing the plot! Hugh Hefner’s program – a rather vile program – was to make it socially acceptable for middle aged men to seduce young women. The path to this was a magazine which featured boobs and interesting articles (and, yes ladies, we did read the articles…only after the boobs, of course: but back in the day, they did feature a variety of interesting articles). Nobody – not a single person – is interested in a man dressed in a bunny suit. I’m gonna bet that even gay men and women – if they had to choose – would rather see a good looking man on the cover rather than a skinny dude in a bunny costume.

October already! Time flies. Of course, the reason why it flies is that as each year goes by, each of them is a smaller percentage of our life. To a ten year old, a year is 10% of life…seems like forever. At my age of 56, it is 1.7% of my life. Bad news: you’re much closer to dying.

But, cheer up! I’m still writing. Actually on the first draft of Book VIII of the Mirrors series. The other day, my granddaughter insisted that I needed a dragon…and this has now started to generate the children’s book, Aleste and the IceCrystal Dragons. Amazing the imagination abilities of children! I’ve ripped it from the Mirrors series with Aleste being the daughter of one of the main characters and so set it in Lontaria. It’ll be Princess Aleste and her two friends as they play with the IceCrystal dragons and thwart the designs of an evil witch yet to be named.

Nancy and Chuck are having some difficulty getting their Graft and Socialism Act of 2021 passed – Democrats came in with this idea that they would just do what they wanted as they had won an astounding victory in 2020. Never mind the fraud! But even if we want to call the election legit, the fact of the matter is they barely won…and unless Pudding Brain remained popular, getting anything large through was doing to be difficult as Purple District/State Democrats warily eyed the 2022 midterms. I’ve loved watching Left Twitter explain that this midterm would be different because Reasons and so those Democrats need not worry. I don’t now if these morons believed it, or simply hoped the at-risk Democrats would. Well, they’re not.

Officially, all problems rest on the shoulders of Manchin and Sinema – but that is just a dodge. They actually represent about 5 Democrat Senators in total and about 20 House Democrats…those most at risk of getting destroyed in 2022 if the Progressives agenda becomes law. Naturally, Democrats have been looking for an assist from the GOP…to get enough Republicans on board to allow cover to these Democrats in peril. But, so far, even people like Romney and Murkowski have shown little interest in pulling Democrat bacon out of the fire. And, honestly, why should they? Sure, they’d get a glowing write up in the Post, but that’s worn thin. They know that it actually harms them with the base to get a glowing write up in the Post. Eventually, something is going to pass – but I bet it is a lot smaller than the $3.5 trillion Bolshevik Boondoggle the Progressives want. There are already rumors out there that Nancy is promising a vote on the Prog agenda in 2022 in return for their votes today. Like that would happen in an election year!

An eco-terrorist has been confirmed by the Senate as head of the BLM: so, look for us here in the West to take huge hits in the timber and ranching interests as this nitwit tries to Save the Planet.

Team Pudding Brain is really determined to end Trump’s remain in Mexico policy, even if it means working around Court orders. This, to me, is where we see Leftist ideology trump reality. The policy is reasonable. it makes sure that real refugees can get in while keeping out the line jumpers and the criminals who prey upon them. But that it was created by the Bad Orange Man is all that matters…it has to go, no matter how popular it was with the public and how horribly unpopular Biden gets on border security. It is like the Democrats want us to have a massive triumph next year in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.

Durham seems to be chugging along. Now, I’m confident that Biden’s “Justice” department will sabotage any prosecution…but props to the man for keeping at it.

Bush’s 2004 campaign guy, Dowd, is running for Lt Governor of Texas as a liberal Democrat. A wag asked the other day if any of Bush’s people, including Bush, are still Republican? Honestly, other than Condi Rice and a couple others, not many. We really do know why we kept mostly losing – and why, even when we won, we never got anything: all of our “Conservative” leaders were actually liberals who merely told us what we wanted to hear.

Meanwhile, the Latino vote in Texas and California continues to swing towards the GOP. And I mean, a lot. In Texas, it could lead to a rare political triumph next year…in California, it is just starting to pick up steam. It seems that Latino voters don’t like being called “Latinx”, aren’t in favor of open borders, and would rather have jobs, good schools and police protection rather than carefully crafted pronouns. Make no mistake about it, guys, to really nail down the Latino vote, we will have to go along with some Big State items…but our future depends on a coalition of white rural and Latino/POC urban voters.

Destroy the Corporate Media

I’m sure you’ve heard the story of the mounted Border Patrol people being accused of whipping Haitian illegal immigrants. I’m sure you also know the story is a complete fabrication. It never happened. Nothing even remotely like it happened. But, the MSM created the lie and they are still running with it. Today, Axios ran a story (I won’t link to them) with the headline:

Gov. Greg Abbott to Border Patrol agents who whipped at Haitian migrants from horseback: “I will hire you to help Texas secure our border.”

Can you believe it? Well, of course you can: we’re all used to this. It is, perhaps, just a little more brazen than it used to be, but egregious lying has been par for the course for the MSM since at least Reagan took office. As I said – and as you know – no whipping took place. As far as eyewitness accounts go – including from the photographer who took the picture being held up as proof that a whipping happened – nobody was hit by anything. But what got me going was a comment about the story from Stephen Miller: a good guy and a smart, well informed person.

There are decent journalists at Axios but why the f**k should we even read or listen to them when their employer is pulling this shit?

I had to put a correction on that: no, there are no decent journalists at Axios. Any decent journalist would refuse to be associated with an organization which lies like that. Technically, I guess there could be – but if they don’t quit their jobs within 24 hours, that will be the proof that none of them are decent.

These aren’t mistakes. These are deliberate, malicious lies. The whipping lie also isn’t the first malicious lie out of the MSM. They’ve done it again and again and again. And it isn’t done for ratings. There is no profit motive here. MSM audience figures are a dumpster fire of fail. CNN is paying Anderson Cooper (who is worth $200 million) about a million dollars a month for a show barely a million people bother to watch at any given time. You don’t do that if money is the motivator – but you will do that if your goal is to promote a Narrative and you need a host who looks and sounds good on TV while reading the most monstrous lies off a teleprompter. Don’t think that isn’t a talent! Most of us would look nervous or embarrassed trying to lie like an MSM host. But they pull it off with aplomb: it is what they’re paid to do.

So, what are we going to do about this? What, that is, will be our response to a gigantic Corporate propaganda machine spewing lies against us 24/7?

A few years ago, all of us would say, “nothing”. We were firmly convinced that the First Amendment was sacrosanct and even the most disgusting lies must be endured so that we can at least have the chance to tell the truth. But it isn’t like that any longer, is it?

Over the past 4 years, especially, the corporate media has actively participated in the shutting down of alternate voices. They have lied about and doxxed persons and organizations merely trying to present the news. They have urged action against such people and organizations to dry up their revenue streams and remove them from various platforms: and they have had a lot of success. It started with Yiannopoulos (if you haven’t followed his saga: the latest I’ve heard is that he’s stopped being gay…which may be another advertising gimmick, but who knows?) being banned and pretty much the entire Right went silent about it. He wasn’t the hill to die on! And then hill after hill was passed by. Lots of non-Left voices have been effectively silenced and without any government action: just the corporations obeying the orders of leftwing pressure groups. Some on the right still try to draw a distinction between Corporate and Government action…but I can’t see it. Not any longer. To me, when You Tube bans a non-left account, it is merely the government using Corporations to do things that the government couldn’t get away with. But, however you want to view that particular issue, the bottom line is that Corporations are banning our speech while allowing the most disgusting lies to be broadcast from Corporate sources.

This isn’t, you know, fair.

If we wish to survive – if we wish to be free and fully able to participate in the public square – the corporate media (profit and non-profit) has to go. All they do is lie. All of their lies serve the Democrat party. Their lies are slickly presented and convince millions of Americans to vote not just against their own interests, but against basic common sense. The First Amendment does not apply to Corporations: that is the standard we must adhere to. That no publicly traded corporation has any First Amendment protection. Furthermore, no person or entity has a right to lie – that is, there is no First Amendment protection for ever broadcasting or publishing anything factually untrue. If you lie, you are liable. I know I’ve said this before, but now with this whipping story, I really do believe my assertion has teeth. Pudding Brain has promised to make the border patrol agents pay – for doing nothing. If the President of the United States, urged by lying media, will punish Border Patrol agents for nothing, what can be done to you any time the corporate media decides to target you?

It is time to drop the quiet dogmas of the past. They won’t do. Our opponents dropped them a long time ago. They will oppress us to their maximum ability at any time. Time to start removing the protections they hide behind while trying to club us to death.

Voter Fraud

You know what they say: late votes/mail votes/any irregular sort of vote always break heavily for Democrats. It is how they assure us that 2020 was legit. Hey, guys, it just works like that – those votes which are not people actually showing up at the polls? Just always break Democrats.

What I wonder is how many of the people making that assertion – and it is almost all Election “experts” – realize that the statement, itself, proves voter fraud.

In any fair system over time things will even out. Oddities can happen, of course. If you had a perfectly balanced quarter and flipped a hundred times, you should come up with a 50/50 split or something so close to that as makes no matter. Now, during this hundred flips, you might go ten or even fifteen times coming up heads. But if it really is a balanced coin and you are flipping it the exact same way each time, then over time it will be 50/50. It is just the way things work. So, when someone says “mail votes always break for Democrats” you are talking about something which cannot happen naturally. It can only be “mail votes always break for Democrats” if someone is making it happen. So, too, with close races – on average, about half should fall to each side. But when almost all close races go to one side rely on it: someone is making that happen.

In my view the AZ audit has shown enough crucial weakness in the security of the vote to prove that winning the State by fraud was only a matter of will: did anyone want to do it? This isn’t, of itself, proof that fraud happened, but given the total picture – which is five States Trump was ahead in on election night all going to Biden after mail in ballots universally went massive for him – I am certain that the 2020 election was stolen. Biden was installed in a flurry of ballot box stuffing the likes of which the United States has never seen before – and they had to go into overdrive, and stop the count for a while, because Trump’s actual vote total took them by surprise. All their polls and experts said that Trump, at most, had held his 2016 voters…but then he comes up with nearly 12 million more voters in 2020 and the Democrats simply weren’t prepared for that level of fraud. They had to wing it: and they did so much stuffing that it became obvious to any fair observer.

There is, unfortunately, nothing we can do about 2020. The only mechanism in the Constitution for removing a President is impeachment or 25th Amendment. We’ll never get 67 Senators to vote to convict so impeachment is out and the 25th Amendment requires his own people to turn on him: and they won’t turn on him because he was frauded into office (they’ll turn on him when its time to shift into 2024 mode). But what it does show is the crucial necessity of voting reform such as that being done in Texas and Georgia – and what has already been done in Florida. You might recall that AZ was ridiculously called for Biden minutes after the polls closed by it took hours to call FL…by the networks. Real election number crunchers called FL 17 minutes after the polls closed in the panhandle. The reason they were able to do this is because reforms in FL let them know by that time how many votes were out and with that info they could see who won the State. It’ll now be similar in TX and GA. If I’m right about fraud being endemic to Democrat politics, then those two States – GA now considered purple and TX trending blue – will over the next couple election cycles go as red as FL. Once the Democrats in FL could no longer effectively commit fraud, FL became not a battleground, but a lost cause. So it will be in TX and GA is my bet – and AZ if the GOP there takes action (which I rate better than 50/50: they are a very McCain party in AZ, but they also don’t want to lose – and now they have been shown chapter and verse what will happen to them if they don’t tackle this).

The reason I believe I am right about GA and TX not trending blue is because of FL – because once we stopped the fraud, a State which took weeks to call in 2000 was called in 17 minutes. Make no mistake about it – in a free and fair election, it doesn’t take more than an hour or two to find out who won, even in the largest population States, even if the race is close. The only reason it takes longer than a couple hours to be able to nail it down is because someone is trying to alter a result and to do that, they need to find out how many Other Side votes their are so they can manufacture any shortfall. I do not believe that Democrats command the loyalty of 50% of the population. There is no way their policies can command that level of support. I believe all of their power is based on voter fraud. And you can see the progression and why they went mail ballots in 2020 and are trying to keep them going for 2022 and 2024: their actual support is dropping so low that the only way they can create sufficient ballots is in a universal mail-in system. Do anything which requires a positive step by a voter to obtain a mail ballot – even if you make it a no questions asked to get a mail ballot – and you’ve killed their ability to cheat. For fraud to work, everyone – dead or alive – must get a ballot so that there will be a huge pool of unused votes to manufacture for Democrats. As we saw in 2020, the Courts will not intervene to question a ballot once it is in the system. This infuriated us but, really, there wasn’t much they could do: once a fake ballot is in, you can’t really distinguish it from a real ballot. That’s why Democrats want mail in and, of course, no purging of voter rolls: they need that flexible number. Make it hard and fast – clean voter roles and you have to request a ballot – and the pool of fake votes dries up. They’d have to go back to the old method of having people vote multiple times in person…but I believe their level of support has dropped to the point that this would be inefficient in securing the number of votes they need.

I think we can crush voter fraud – at least in enough States to ensure we’ve got a fair shot at winning. But the real battle will come if we do get power. If we do get back in, we’ll have to find a way to effectively check the deep blue areas. Find out just how many people are actually voting. My bet is that in the deep blue cities, the number of votes reported bears no relation to the number of voters who showed up. In areas where Democrats have absolute political control (Chicago, Detroit, LA, etc) there is nobody who can so much as question what goes on: all the officials and judges are Democrats. But I remember in the 2016 audit of MI that the Greens tried to engineer they found box after box of Detroit ballots not holding nearly as many votes as were reported. I mean it was on the lines of the documents saying there were a thousand votes in Box A when there were actually only a couple hundred. It would be nothing for a Democrat poll worker beholden for his or her job to the Democrat Party to simply say, “there are a thousand ballots and nine hundred ninety are for the Democrat”. Who would check? If checked, who would make an issue of it? Democrats would have to be saints to not take advantage of this opportunity to alter a State-wide race in their favor. Don’t know about you, but people who support abortion on demand don’t seem to me to be people of high moral standards.

I guess what I’m really saying here is don’t give up the ship. Don’t fall for those who say that we should give up because we can’t beat the fraud. We can. We control enough territory to ensure that an electoral majority is decided in a free and fair election. Keep fighting. I think that the Ruling Class, by installing Joe at all costs, ensured their own eventual defeat. They went too far.

In 2021, it is Thinkers vs Mindless

The recall in California and the Canadian election show why the Covid fear-mongering is kept up: very large numbers of people are deathly afraid of the disease and will vote for whoever promises to keep them safe. As if anyone can do that – but, we’re dealing with people who lack basic knowledge of how the world works.

Who are these people? Well, they might have college degrees, but it isn’t like they learned anything; especially not anything outside a hard science. But even those who get degrees in engineering, still nothing beyond that. Used to be, a college education meant you got a fair amount of languages, art, philosophy, theology, history and law – and this regardless of what you might have been aiming at for a career. But what all that did was train the mind to think. College doesn’t do that. Even the best doctors and lawyers emerging from higher education these days can’t think. They can only regurgitate what they were told…because they weren’t told anything else.

You might think they’d eventually get annoyed by not thinking – you know, being surprised all the time that things don’t work as you were told they would – but a person who’s mind hasn’t been trained to think doesn’t realize what is missing. If things go wrong, they have no way to assess the facts and arrive at a conclusion. All they can do is stare blankly until someone else tells them what to believe about it. And that instruction is always close to hand: via TV and social media, you’ll be told what to believe!

Now, what about those who have no college education? Surely, they can’t think, either, right? Well, not quite. A welfare bum sitting on the couch eating Cheetos doesn’t think…but anyone who works for a living, who has to produce results in order to eat, thinks. There’s no other way to do it. Regardless even if it is a mindless assembly job, you still have to think about what you’re doing. Same thing, but more so, with activities like plumbing, auto repair, home construction, farming, etc. A plumber might well be inarticulate unless he reads in his spare time, but if he’s plumbed for more than a couple years, he had learned how to think…because mapping out how to do the job in front of you takes the ability to consider the unexpected and find a solution from a variety of alternates. On and on with the rest of such jobs. If you can’t think, you can’t do them.

And there is our real problem: a huge number of people who can’t think are yet able to vote and they vote as they’re told: in California and Canada, they just swamped people who know how to think – people who can balance the risk of a disease 98.12% survivable against the need to get things done. You and I – we being thinkers – are fully capable of assessing the risks of going to a large gathering, unmasked, amongst those who may or may not be vaccinated. As for me, given that the Mrs has a mild case of COPD, I would avoid such a thing because I know that people with underlying conditions are at much higher risk of severe complications than those without. We’re also able to see that the number of people under 25 who have died of the disease informs us that there is nearly no risk to youngsters gathering…so, kids, go have a party!

But the people who vote against us can’t do that. They simply don’t know how. All they know is that the disease can kill and the TV keeps telling them that its really dangerous and there’s that guy on Facebook who told them that hospitals are overflowing with the sick. So, best to go along with mask mandates and vaccine passports. Because the TV says that will keep you safe.

We’ll find out next year just what proportion of our population is thinking and what part of it is essentially brain dead. The better the Democrats do, the most stupid we’ll turn out to be.

Open Thread

No surprise that Milley may have been involved in coup activities against Trump. The bottom line is that pretty much everyone in the Executive Branch was working against him from Day One. They won’t tolerate an outsider. What this means is that if we secure the White House in 2024 – no matter who it is – mass firings must be the first order of business.

I know that a lot of the people in the Executive Branch have civil service protection – but those who can’t be fired have to be reassigned to sorting paper clips or something. They can’t be involved in forming or even knowing about Administration policy. And if we get a trifecta, then we have to make it so that all Executive Branch employees serve at the pleasure of the President. I get the idea behind 19th century Civil Service reform. The old “spoils system” was rotten to the core. But a system where supposedly apolitical career bureaucrats undermine a President they don’t like is worse than the most corrupt spoils system you can imagine. A corrupt crony of the President installed into office can be immediately removed when discovered – a civil service protected traitor can’t be. We elect the President to be absolute ruler of the Executive Branch. All Executive power is vested in the President. There is nobody else who has federal Executive power. Given this, only the person we, the people, place into the office may exercise discretionary power. Everyone else has to follow orders, or get out.

The Chinese just blew up 15 high rises which had sat empty for a decade. Mark it, folks: just as everything in the MSM about the United States is a lie, so is everything about China. We don’t really know the shape of the world because what is actually happening is buried under a mountain of lies. The lies are designed with varied purposes – but the general purpose is to increase the wealth and power of the Global Ruling Class, of which China’s Ruling Class is now the leading member. The bad news: we don’t know what disaster may suddenly explode upon the world because so many lies are being told.

I’ve discerned a new sort of Social Media Bot. Anyone who spends any time on Facebook or Twitter knows the normal Bot: someone paid to just mouth whatever is the Conventional Wisdom of the day. These bots are easy to spot: they usually follow a lot of people and have few followers. Because they aren’t real people. They don’t interact: they just post what they’re paid to post or argue mindlessly the point they’re paid to make. But now I see another type: harder to spot as they do genuinely interact and so can seem to be real people. But they still are part of the control system. Some of them will be Debbie Downers: always saying there’s no point, we can’t win. Others demanding purity on one issue and demanding that anyone who disagrees be blacklisted. Others stir up intramural fights. All three of them will usually be found to eventually be asking for money for something: the Cause, or the book they are writing, or some such. Have to be wary when on social media: as for me, most of my social media is done on Twitter. My block list has gone past 21,000. It is the way to keep it sane and ensure that I’m able to discuss things with real people.

LA County is going for vaccine passports. It is inevitable in any Democrat controlled area – especially after the recall failed (it failed because the Dems massive registration advantage combined with the GOP not finding a message which resonated: silver lining is that Latino voters continue to shift GOP, especially males…who in CA voted nearly identical to white males; Jose ain’t fond of Pronouns, “Latinx” and bums defecating on the sidewalk). The Democrats believe their talisman for victory is Covid fear-mongering. And if not victory, at least limiting the losses next year. If Pudding Brain is under 50% next November, it probably means 20+ House seats lost…and the lower into the 40s he goes, the worse…but the calculation seems to be that if they can keep up the fear and keep it tribal, they can limit their losses in the Purple areas.

9/11 After 20 Years

I couldn’t until now write about the 20th anniversary. I’ve been pondering it all day and only now, as we flip over to 9/12 on the Pacific Coast calendar has it started to clarify in my mind what I’m thinking about it.

The 9/11 attacks, whatever they meant to you and me, meant something entirely different for the Ruling Class – the Deep State, whatever you want to call it. To us, they were a horrible attack on our country and the perpetrators needed to be hunted down and killed, cost what it might. To them – to the bosses – it was merely an acceptable level of violence and their whole thought in the aftermath was how to control us. To prevent, that is, from the people of the United States in their righteous anger and national unity upsetting the global applecart.

On 9/10, everything was great for them – things were cruising along. They were making money and firmly in power and the world was at their command. They were busy de-industrializing the United States and ever more shackling us to the dictates and moods of the international Ruling Class. Along comes some yahoos who go just a little too far – and the American people wanted answers and justice.

But answers would expose the bosses, don’t you see? It was a very preventable attack. Just some simple diligence on checking up on those coming into the country would have kept the hijackers out. But if you start doing that, you’re also going to interfere with the drug runners and human traffickers and, dang, there’s a lot of money in that and if steps were taken to keep out undesirables from the United States, all that would come to an end. Not only that, but once the full level of gross negligence was exposed, there would be demands that ruling class heads roll. Can’t have people lose out decades-long careers just because a few thousand people were murdered!

And then, if we really went after the source of the problem – the State sponsors of terrorism – then just think of all the vast, money-making (for the Ruling Class) operations would be lost! The financial hit to people already sleeping on piles of money would be terrible. The last thing any of them wanted was us hick morons going, “hey, Iran is the main sponsor of this stuff: get rid of that government.” So, they cooked up campaigns in Afghanistan and then Iraq – placing ours in shooting galleries and then tying their hands so that there was no chance of a clear cut victory. They calculated – correctly – that over time and with mounting losses, we’d just want it over with. No need to look into who failed and certainly no desire to take on the actual problem.

They were ok with all this because what bin Laden did had no ill effect on them unless they had the ill luck to be at work early at the World Trade Center that day (and what really big boss gets in before ten?). To them, 9/11 was a matter of messaging and then appearing to do something in response. Didn’t matter how it came out – they’d still be rich and in charge and they’d award themselves medals and letters of commendation no matter what happened. And if some poor kid from Akron got his legs blown off or another who killed the wrong guy had to be brought up on war crimes charges, big deal. It didn’t harm them.

But there was a fly in the ointment. We really did want those who did it killed and we really expected our Rulers to present us with victory. And as lie and failure piled up on top of each other, the creeping realization that things were in bad shape started to grow in our minds. Things just weren’t right. We don’t lose to ragged bands of Islamists with IEDs. But, we were losing. And as things continued to drag out and no improvement was in sight we started to lose our faith in the institutions. And, so, Trump: and that crisis really got the Ruling Class’ attention but to get Trump out, they had to amp up the lies to absurd lengths. This did make many millions of people dutifully fall in line to hate Trump…but it also woke up millions to just how lousy and creepy the Ruling Class is.

They did, in the end, get Trump out. In a ridiculously rigged election. While students were chanting “f*** Biden” at football games, cops and firefighters were lining up to shake hands with Trump on 9/11. This man who supposedly got 81 million votes while Trump was increasing his 2016 vote total by more than 11 million votes got booed in the streets of New York. It is too late for them, now. Sure, they have their supporters: the most mindless of Americans are still watching MSNBC to learn what to think each day, but at least half the country – and I suspect far more – has tuned it all out.

So, the long term effect of 9/11 is going to be, I think, the end of the Ruling Class. They couldn’t defend us and their lies just went too far. People are starting to wake up from the daze that we’ve been in for decades. We know: trust nothing. They’re all liars until proven otherwise.

How this will shake out over the next few years is anyone’s guess: but I don’t think we’ll go back. Biden was the Ruling Class’ attempt to put the cat back into the bag. They’d prefer Joe stick for two terms or, failing that, Kamala takes over for him. And they wouldn’t mind if a tame Republican replaces Biden. That was the plan here: get Trump out and then get the GOP to put up Jeb II or Romney II so that we could all go back to 9/10/2001. But that won’t happen. We, on our side, simply won’t put up with it. We still feel anger at those who did 9/11. We are still willing to fight the Islamists if need be. But we also know that our immediate problem is at home, not abroad and no attempts and stifling us in the name of “national security” or “national unity” will ever get us back to our 9/10 world again. We go forward – and to a future where those who failed us on 9/11 no longer have a say in this country.

The Constitution is Not a Suicide Pact

The Rolling Stone published a story based on an interview on local Oklahoma TV where a doctor claimed that gunshot victims couldn’t get treatment because ER’s are so overwhelmed with ivermectin overdoses they can’t take new patients.

There was only one thing wrong about the story: it was a fabrication from start to finish. The doctor who made the claim didn’t even work at the hospital in question and the hospital says they haven’t admitted anyone for ivermectin overdose.

This is a classic Soviet disinformation op. They did this sort of thing all the time: plant a story in some out of the way place and then ensure that someone big picked up on it: before you knew it, the story was around the world. And here’s the thing: it doesn’t matter if later the truth comes out. Corrections never have as much impact as the initial, shocking claim. The Tweet of the article got the Rolling Stone more than 17,000 retweets and 19,000 likes. Rolling Stone’s follow up pointing out that the hospital denied everything? About 300 retweets. Most people who saw the lie float through their TL will never find out it was a lie. What does Rolling Stone care they were caught in a lie? The Cause was served. The Narrative advanced. Because the story wasn’t for you and me: we know the MSM is nothing but despicable liars. The story was for Blue State voters – it told them that those racist, hick MAGAts are so stupid they are OD’ing on “horse dewormer” (which is another lie: apparently there is a human use version of the drug and has been for years). It told, that is, upper class, urban liberals that they are oh, so smart to stick with the Democrats and keep masked up and locked down. And the purpose of that is defense: the Democrats know full well that, all else being equal, they are going to take losses next year. Making things entirely tribal means there’s a good chance their tribe won’t go off the ranch over trivial things like inflation and surrender to the Taliban.

The problem here is that nothing will happen to the liars. Even if a particular MSMer is caught so obviously in a lie that he gets fired, there is no real sanction. And if you check back after a while, you’ll find that the fired liar has been given a new gig in the industry. There is no cost for the most egregious and wicked lies – and so egregious and wicked lies have become the norm.

Here’s the question I now put to you: can a Republic of free people endure if people, under the protection of the First Amendment, are allowed to lie without sanction?

It is a serious question, and it requires a serious answer. I am no longer of the position that people must be allowed to saw whatever they want. I used to believe that because I believed it protected my ability to say what I wished. But now I know that it doesn’t: the liars who demand full protection of the First Amendment do not accord such protection to me. If I say something absolutely true but opposed to the Party Line, I am to be destroyed. A man named John Gibson, founder of a gaming development company, was fired for pointing out on Twitter that he is pro life. That’s it: he merely stated his opinion. And an opinion shared by many tens of millions of Americans. But that was enough to ruin him. Statement made at 1:04pm on September 4th, fired at 6:01pm, September 6th. Little less than 53 hours from words to unemployment. And the only reason they haven’t done this to you is because they haven’t got around to it, yet. You do not have First Amendment protection in any practical sense. It is nothing to say that you can say what you want, but you’ll lose your job if you say the wrong thing. Everyone who has to work for someone else now takes great care in what they say in public.

The Constitution is not a suicide pact. I will not agree that I must let those who wish to destroy me in spite of Constitutional protections hide behind those protections against retaliation. The rule – established by the liars – is that if someone disagrees with you, then can be socially and economically destroyed. I disagree with the liars in the MSM.

In my view, there are two things we should do:

  1. A law prohibiting sanctions against an employee for speech made outside the work environment. I’ve said this before and got a lot of push back on it. I believe I have been proved correct. If they can’t take away our employment, then we will have taken away their primary means of forcing us to comply.
  2. Laws must be crafted to provide criminal and civil sanction to anyone who states something factually false in public. I know it is fraught with hazard: but the impervious defense here is to simply never say anything in public unless you are 100% certain it is factually correct. A jury will ultimately decide if you lied and you only need one in twelve to see a fact. Additionally, if we sanction those who falsely accuse others of lying (in other words, someone accuses you of lying in public, but you didn’t) then that will take away the incentive the liars will have to make false charges.

What we can’t afford is to do nothing. We can’t allow liars and tyrants to proliferate and hope that we can survive by arguing a liar out of his lie. He’s lying: he knows he can’t win an argument. The liar isn’t trying to win an argument: he’s trying to destroy you. The liar must be punished, and quite severely. If we don’t do this, then everything else we do becomes ultimately pointless.
