A Time of Choosing Approaches

Ultimately, we might be faced with a choice between Franco and Lenin. This is very dangerous, these times we live in.

Me? What would I do? Well, if I had to choose…then just figure that its Spain, 1936 and I’m a Carlist.

I think a lot of people miss what Solzhenitsyn really meant when he said the 20th Century’s problem was that people had forgotten about God. It is an easy statement and most probably think they grasp it…but you have to dig really deep to understand that those who forget about God are incapable of morality. Sure, sure; we’ve all heard the stories of the good atheist. Yadda, yadda, yadda…but doesn’t matter. If you really have excised God from your life then there is nothing to hold you back except purely practical considerations. Mostly: you don’t want to go to jail. But if jail isn’t in prospect, what’s to stop you? You don’t believe in God – indeed, you’ve forgotten about Him.

When we read story after story of rich, powerful men preying upon women and youth, what do you really think that is about? For goodness sake, these are rich men: they can pony up the money and have a bevy of gorgeous women (or boys, if they swing that way) voluntarily do whatever sexual acts are desired. But, they don’t do that, do they? No: they want someone they can abuse. If you pay someone the asked price then it isn’t abuse. It is still just as immoral, but where is the power involved in that? How can you feel a special, elect person unless you can force someone to do something with no worry about consequences to yourself?

Because that is the real mark of forgetting about God: becoming a bully. When we say the phrase “brotherhood of man” we can only say that if we’re the children of God. And if we are all, indeed, children of God then we are brothers and sisters and so we really shouldn’t abuse one another. But if there isn’t any God – if we forgot about Him? – well, then; who are you to me? You are whatever I can force you to be. And there is a delicious pleasure to be had in abusing another person. Don’t doubt me on this.

In ancient America do you think the Aztec priests woke up on Monday going, “oh, geesh, its rip-hearts-out day! Dang! I just wanted to go fishing!”. Nope; it wasn’t like that because it couldn’t be like that. Aztec priests, priests of Baal, Auschwitz guards, NKVD interrogators…all have this in common: to them, it was cool what they were doing. They enjoyed it. And don’t think they didn’t know it was wrong: that is something that can’t be excised from the human heart no matter how much a person forgets about God. How do we know this is true? Because the one thing an Aztec priest and NKVD interrogator would never do is volunteer to be subjected to what they did. You think the guy who ripped out a heart really thought that God was pleased? Don’t be quite so silly: if he really believed that, he’d have undergone it. If you don’t want it to happen to you then you know that you shouldn’t do it. But, still, they did it. Because there is an exquisite pleasure in being cruel. There is a rush in doing evil which the victim is forbidden to stop. That someone is at your mercy is a glorious feeling – provided, of course, that you take that first step in forgetting about God.

The other part of it is the not everyone gets to do it. That’s the flip side of abuse: exclusivity. Fruits that are forbidden to all but the Elect. If you’re in the club, you have the privilege. If you want the most insane ego trip then you want to be abusing in a manner that is denied to most. Joe down the street would long ago have been locked up for life if he did 10% of what some of these rich men do. And that’s the beauty of it for them. To be able to let loose their own perversions upon helpless victims while most can’t is the mark of being at the top of the heap. Of being a special, advanced person who can’t be questioned by the lower orders.

But it isn’t just super rich who have forgotten about God. Nope: plenty of people far down the socio-economic scale, aping the super rich, have forgotten as well. But they do lack the means and the protection to really go to town. So, they do what they can – like, you know, burn down a business during a riot one day and then harass a person for not wearing a mask the next. Place everyone on edge about pronouns and systemic racism. With, you know, only you and the select in the club knowing what is a violation. It isn’t quite like Epstein, but it is still a rush for some low-rent pipsqueak of a nobody to be able to lord it over some shop owner or random person walking down the street.

What we have in America today is a system of privileges assigned by money or claimed victim status. If you’re rich and shovel money out to the right people, you are nearly untouchable. If you can claim the correct victim status, you are also untouchable. But in both cases, you are allowed to touch anyone. Only you get to decide what is good and what is bad and your word, even if it changes by the minute, is law. Everyone who isn’t rich or a victim is your plaything. Their lives are in your hands: you can cost them their job, ruin them socially. Just a bit more pushing and you might even be able to send them to prison for daring to transgress whatever insane rules you thought up just the moment before. And, remember, they think it is fun. They have forgotten about God and so their lives are without hope or purpose: to fill up this vacuum, they’ll shove just about anything in there. And the ultimate thing to satisfy is human lives. They already work towards this, step by step; checking along the way to see if anyone will really stop them. And nobody is…so they just keep going.

So, what are we to do? I mean: those of us who remember God and so have morality and wouldn’t think of abusing anyone?

We’re going to have to relearn an old lesson taught by the Scipios of Rome and Hernan Cortes: you don’t tolerate barbarian bullies. Either they go, or we do.

The time of choosing his rapidly approaching.

    The most powerful thing we can do is in prayer. Our Blessed Mother said as much many times in each of her appearances here on earth. She specifically asked back in Fatima for the Pope and all the bishops of the world for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart. “If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.” To date, this has not been done and as predicted over 100 years ago, communism is spreading her errors throughout the world.

    We can stand up and fight, but unless you have a concerted effort from a large enough group, our efforts will be nothing more than a series of small grease pan fire in the kitchen, easily squashed. And with the most of the media in control of the message it will be doubly difficult to a generate a collaborative plan much less real effective action. While that may still be to ultimate course we are forced to take, I am still dedicating my efforts and faith in the Blessed Mother and her Son Jesus, because while communism is what we seem to battle, what we are ultimately combating is the devil. And that will be a spiritual fight. The prayer of the rosary is far more powerful than any gun I own. Even the devil conceded that if people knew the power of the Hail Mary prayer, he would have been defeated long ago. Every Hail Mary is a gold coin of spiritual currency. Each rosary is like a pot of gold. All of my efforts by myself or should I say, without the hand of God, will be futile.

      jdge1, I am so happy to see you so involved in the blog. You are posting some very significant stuff here.

      Just a quick note before I go off to catch up on outside stuff: You say we are, essentially, in a spiritual fight. That is quite similar to my observation that the divisions in this country have become differences in character., that is what this has come down to.

      And the Left realizes this, which is why they have tried to be proactive in this fight and project their own evil onto us. That is why their focus on Trump is based on character/virtue words like “cruel”. They are frantically trying to put up such a massive smoke screen that no one will be able to see through it and see that they are really talking about themselves and their agenda, which is to impoverish the nation to make its people weak, frightened and dependent on a government which will then dictate every aspect of their lives.

  2. jdge1 December 6, 2020 / 5:46 am

    In an excerpt from an article written by the late Walter Williams, he states: ” One of the justifications for the massive growth of government in the 20th and now the 21st centuries, far beyond the narrow limits envisioned by the founders of our nation, is the need to promote what the government defines as fair and just. But this begs the prior and more fundamental question: What is the legitimate role of government in a free society? To understand how America’s Founders answered this question, we have only to look at the rule book they gave us—the Constitution. Most of what they understood as legitimate powers of the federal government are enumerated in Article 1, Section 8. Congress is authorized there to do 21 things, and as much as three-quarters of what Congress taxes us and spends our money for today is nowhere to be found on that list. To cite just a few examples, there is no constitutional authority for Congress to subsidize farms, bail out banks, or manage car companies. In this sense, I think we can safely say that America has departed from the constitutional principle of limited government that made us great and prosperous.”

    Any attempt to define anything in terms of “fair and just” without God at the center of consideration, is simply a ploy to concentrate money and power in the hands of a few, those in control of the terms. I learned long ago when dealing with contracts, the person who writes the contract controls the narrative and thereby the rules. I read recently someone on the left state; ”… right-wing American libertarians that worship the constitution.” as though playing by same set of defined rules is somehow a bad thing.

    When the rulebook, our constitution, is dismissed or said to be a fluid living document constantly changing depending on the times we live in and defined by an activist judicial, we are at the mercy of those on top of the power structure. And since the left has outwardly stated in their platform a dismissal of God from the conversation through the supposed justification of “separation of church and state”, it has come time to remove them from any and all forms of power. These next few weeks will be telling, with the decisions made in regards to the election. If little or nothing is done about the obvious fraud and deceit whereby these crimes are allowed to stand, then we are left with no choice but to dismantle our government in its current form. As stated in The Declaration of Independence; ” That, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government… It’s anyone’s guess as to how that would happen or what it would look like.

    • Retired Spook December 6, 2020 / 4:30 pm

      it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government…” It’s anyone’s guess as to how that would happen or what it would look like.

      I can give you a pretty good idea how it will look. Kamala Harris is going to tell Beto O’Roarke to put together a task force to collect the guns, because they won’t be able to do any of the batsh*t crazy stuff on their list until the general population is disarmed. Beto is going to say, “i’m not gonna do it; get Mikey to do it.” They will gather hundreds, maybe thousands of C.F. Mikeys (that’s cannon fodder Mikeys) who will subsequently be (to paraphrase Gen. George Patton) slaughtered by the bushel-f’ing basketful. Then they’ll order the military to go collect the guns, and the military, in the words of another famous general, will say “NUTS, or perhaps something a little more colorful. By that time I think Joe and the Ho will begin to get the idea that there is a significant resistance to their policies, and the guys in the white hats will negotiate their surrender from a position of strength. The Army Corp Engineers will be ordered to build a rather large new wing on Leavenworth. THE END

        One of the things I am looking forward to learning is how many Democrat members of Congress will be so spineless they go along with their party and if any have backbones and integrity and the welfare of the nation at heart as well as the courage to step away from the plans of the Left.

        BTW, I doubt that any CF Mikeys would try to take away guns in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Arizona, Alabama, Missouri, Mississippi, Arkansas, Texas, Georgia, Ohio, Kentucky or many other states where gun ownership is part of our DNA. When and if things get kinetic it will be in urban areas already dominated by the Left, and will prompt a true civil war as the nation is split apart.

    Senate hearings dealing with FBI corruption was attended by one lone Democrat. “Apparently corruption is partisan,” stated Senator Ron Johnson, R-Wisc.

    • Amazona December 6, 2020 / 11:47 am

      It really has come down to openly choosing sides, and the choice is clearly between what is right or wrong, what is objectively good and what just benefits the Left.

      Sadly, we are, as usual, pathetic in our messaging. We should have loud and clear voices not just pointing out the blatant fraud of this election but making the point that this is a time where people have to declare, even if only in their own minds, which side they are on. I can see the possibility that some good well-intentioned people still vote for Democrats without realizing the true identity of the system they are supporting and enabling, but this election should make it clear that in this case the choice is between fighting for an electoral process that is open, transparent, fair and meaningful and an essential component of our identity as a nation or a thoroughly corrupt system that only had a thin veneer of being a true election while really just being theater cloaking an attack on our very soul as a nation.

      People who want an honest election process will want every challenge investigated, no matter which side ends up with the remaining votes. People who are fine with corruption if it advances the agenda of their team have to admit that this is their standard of integrity and morality. That is the basic choice represented by this election and the information that has come out about it.

      Every single person who is cheering a court “defeat” by challengers, every single person who says that if a challenge wouldn’t change the outcome it should be ignored or dismissed, every single person who objects to the investigations and court procedures, is basically saying he or she supports and condones illegality and corruption and the undermining of our entire electoral system. There is no excuse for this, no claim about Trump that, even if remotely true, would justify the damage done to our Republic by this kind of shift to a system of brute power and discarding of all legal and moral restrictions.

    For anyone considering getting the COVID vaccination, be aware that the pharmaceutical company MODERNA has a molecular biological patented agent called mRNA or messenger (modified) RNA, meaning its intent is to modify a person’s DNA structure. Oh sure, where do I sign up (NOT). MODERNA has a patent on this substrate used in the COVID vaccine (as well as others) that is a bio- phosphorescent material, capable of holding a unique code for each person…. kind of like branding or tagging everyone with a number. You can’t see it with the naked eye, but can scan it to prove vaccine records along with other information. This could be easily perceived as a way to control your every move forcing restrictions for those not vaccinated, right down to a window on many privacies you currently relish.

    The name of the patented substrate: LUCIFERASE (another YCMTSU), though you’d be hard pressed to find that information in the agenda media. Talk about being obvious.


    • Amazona December 6, 2020 / 11:49 am

      Is is possible to test the vaccine to tell if this substrate is in it? Moderna might own a patent on something it is not using. I think this would be important information to know.

      And, of course, this is the kind of human tagging that should be illegal.

    Evil does exist in this world, and God is not a pacifist.

    My optimism is renewed as I watch and read about the many Americans who refuse to fold their tent and accept a Leftist infiltration. Tens of thousands of American patriots showed up in GA yesterday to support the one man in this country who has the conviction and the power to stand up to tyranny. I am becoming more and more convinced that God reached down (as He has before) and chose a very flawed, politically incorrect man to show the way and if we abandon him now or retreat from the cause, then we deserve what we get.

    The media and Democrats are making a huge mistake in assuming that they are fighting against Republicans. They are not. Democrats are fighting Americans, American families, and American’s Freedom & Faith. Now granted, American families are up against formidable forces including China, the media, Hollywood, Academia, and the Fourth branch of government, but I like our chances. Spook once posted a great quote that I can not remember, but it was similar to the following quote and one that all warriors understand

    The time for choosing is indeed here, and yet we still have too many squishy conservatives IMHO, even Rush:

    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, the most listened to man on the radio, has called on Donald Trump’s legal team to get their act together and show their evidence before it’s too late. Limbaugh said that it was too easy to dismiss conservatives as ‘kooks’ because he and his team were not presenting a clear, fact-based argument for electoral fraud. Limbaugh is not the only one to accept reality: Fox News anchors Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham have conceded that Trump lost, and Carlson has spoken out against some of Trump’s team for turning down his offer to present their evidence on his show.

    Who cares what the Left thinks of us?? So mentally deranged Leftists may think we’re kooks? … who gives a F**K what they think? You’re better than that Rush. But this does show us all how powerful the social circles of the rich are, of which Rush is a member don’t kid yourself about that. You know who doesn’t give a shit what the Left thinks? Plumbers, electricians, ranchers, farmers, small business owners and people of Faith throughout this country, people who actually move this country forward.

    I will wager to say that the Founding Fathers took the actions they did when confronted with much less of a threat than we face today. King George did not have the power that our media and the Fourth branch of government currently have today and those formidable forces are all lined up against us. But again, I like our chances

    An Oregon doctor has reportedly lost his medical license after attending a “Stop the Steal” rally and delivering comments about the coronavirus and face masks. For his heresy, the Oregon Medical Board issued an emergency suspension of LaTulippe’s license, finding the doctor engaged in “unprofessional” and “dishonorable” conduct, NBC News reported.

    My wife and I just got back from Church. We sang a Christmas Carol this morning that I hadn’t heard in a long time that dovetailed perfectly with Mark’s Post.

    “I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day”

    I heard the bells on Christmas day
    Their old familiar carols play
    And mild and sweet their songs repeat
    Of peace on earth good will to men

    And the bells are ringing (Peace on Earth)
    Like a choir they’re singing (Peace on Earth)
    In my heart I hear them
    Peace on earth, good will to men

    And in despair I bowed my head
    There is no peace on earth I said
    For hate is strong and mocks the song
    Of peace on earth, good will to men

    But the bells are ringing (Peace on Earth)
    Like a choir singing (Peace on Earth)
    Does anybody hear them?
    Peace on earth, good will to men

    Then rang the bells more loud and deep
    God is not dead, nor doth He sleep (Peace on Earth, peace on Earth)
    The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
    With peace on earth, good will to men

    Then ringing singing on its way
    The world revolved from night to day
    A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
    Of peace on earth, good will to men

    And the bells they’re ringing (Peace on Earth)
    Like a choir they’re singing (Peace on Earth)
    And with our hearts we’ll hear them
    Peace on earth, good will to men

    Do you hear the bells they’re ringing? (Peace on Earth)
    The life the angels singing (Peace on Earth)
    Open up your heart and hear them (Peace on Earth)
    Peace on earth, good will to men
    Peace on earth, Peace on earth
    Peace on earth, Good will to men

    (Emphasis – mine)

        Effective today our church decided to get tough on mask wearing. Up until today the pastor and his wife were the ONLY ones who wore masks, although the pastor took his off to preach. This morning when we walked in everyone but one old curmudgeon was wearing a mask, and as soon as we all were seated and the service began it was announced that this was to be the new policy, masks from the entrance to the pews. Apparently you can’t get COVID sitting in a pew. Who knew? As soon as we got home I went on-line and ordered a mask with the following message printed on it:


        If anyone is offended, I’ll tell them the alternative is for me to leave and quit my position on the board.

      • Amazona December 7, 2020 / 12:19 am

        Because the mask thing is so bogus—any kind of face covering is fine—I have thought of making one out of a couple of layers of gauze and having it just tie at the top and hang down, kind of like the face covering on a burka. I can’t figure out how to get a message on it, though.

        Last week I was at Tractor Supply and though they ask people to wear masks only a couple of the staff were and a couple of customers. I told the two guys helping me “It’s your store, and you can make the rules. You can require me to wear bunny ears to shop here if you want to. Just don’t insult me by pretending it has anything to do with safety.” They agreed.

      • Retired Spook December 7, 2020 / 12:04 pm

        I have a friend who owns a small body shop who echoed what DB (I think it was DB) said a while back. He told me, if you think masks will stop a virus, try wearing one in his shop when he’s painting or using an electric sander on body filler and then clean out your nose with a cue tip afterwards. It’s why he wears a respirator when he sands and paints. A neighbor who is a volunteer fire fighter says the same thing about smoke particles, which are about 2.5 microns in size compared to COVID virus particles that are .06 – .14 microns (a difference of 20-40 times). The Marine Corps did a large study of something like 3,000 recruits at Paris Island. The group that wore masks actually had a slightly higher infection rate than the group that didn’t. The Army had a similar experience at Fort Benning, GA, in May. The CDC really stepped in it big time recently when a study they did found that 85% of the subjects who became infected wore masks all or most of the time. When confronted with that, a CDC spokesman said, “well, we never said a mask would protect the wearer.” That was the same week that Robert Redfield, the CDC Director, testified before Congress that he would trust a mask to keep him safe more than he would a vaccine. Obviously they hadn’t gotten together to get their stories straight.

    It’s rare that you meet a person who really was born in the wrong age. You, Mark, were born at the wrong time and in the wrong place. You should have been born just before the First World War in Galicia. By the time Franco came to power through the brutal help of Germany you would have been curiously look west toward America as a shining light of hope in a desperate world that was turned upside down by fascism. Your worldview is not a victim Mark and you aren’t either. You are just a man like many men who wish they could have done what they wanted to do but were too scared to try. You don’t hate atheists you abhor free will and the truth that people can utilize theirs for good or evil without consulting you.


    • Amazona December 6, 2020 / 7:43 pm

      What an idiot.

      Freddy is a good example of the Leftist characteristics I noted in an earlier post. Of all the bits and pieces of the world laid out before him he pecks around and chooses only the ugly ones and the sourest perspectives.

      The narcissism of conviction that there is no power in the universe greater than you exhibits itself in many negative ways but I think this is the first time it has been “explained” as the only way to experience free will. But the truth still shines through—-if Freddy is preening over his free will then he is admitting that he has CHOSEN his path of negativity and surliness.

      What’s funny is that he seems to think this is a virtue. And if he is at all political, I will bet that his political choices are those focused on denial of personal liberty and consolidation of power in the hands of a few–that is, the system dedicated to erasing free will.

    What a glorious day this has been. 60s in the foothills of Wyoming, a slight breeze and literally not a cloud in the sky. At lunch I looked out my kitchen window and saw my cats lined up on the porch enjoying the sun and watching six deer grazing on my lawn. I am channeling my Inner Ant and stocking up for the winter, so we filled my big automatic feeders with the four tons of special feed supplement I brought back from Montana this week and organized my hay stack to get ready for about 20 tons of hay to be delivered tomorrow. It is such a good feeling to have this done, and to be able to do it on such a perfect day has been such a blessing. Our luncheon prayer was one of thanks for this, among our many blessings.

    Next week will focus on building a new chicken palace in Colorado, in spite of my reservations about spending the winter in Stalag Colorado under the iron fist of Commandant Polis and his dictatorial edicts. But I have business to tend to, so I must deal with it. Some of us were talking yesterday about the death spiral of Colorado in just the past two or three years. My house in Denver will be ready to move into in a week or so and it is gorgeous, and I am seriously thinking of just putting it on the market. Denver is feeling like East Portland, with its homeless camped on the streets and downtown becoming too dangerous to visit after dark. It is what happens with a Democrat mayor and a Democrat governor, but it happened so fast it has stunned us. I have loved Denver, but like so much of the rest of Colorado these days it is barely recognizable. If it was possible to travel I would take off for a month or so and drive around the south and southeast to see if any area appeals to me as a winter home but that doesn’t sound like much fun these days. So I’m keeping my options open and maybe chickies and duckies and I will trek back north if Colorado is too grim. At least I have my own little community of sane and normal people, and a new Scrabble board.

    It is very strange to realize that life as we know it could very easily change, quite dramatically, in just a few weeks.

      What a glorious day this has been.

      We’re having that kind of WINTER. Last year the first 3 weeks of November were the coldest on record, and then most of the rest of the winter was pretty mild. This year we had two stretches of Indian Summer, 5 straight days in early November in the 70’s and a couple weeks later 3 straight days in the mid 60’s. Since then mostly in the 40’s, although a the last 4 or 5 nights have been down in the low 20’s and high teens, enough to put a couple inches of smooth, clear ice on our pond. My granddaughter and great granddaughter are hoping for it to continue without snow so they can ice skate for the first time in a long time. My soon-to-be 7-year-old great granddaughter has never skated on our pond. Every year in recent memory we’ve gotten 3 or 4 inches of ice and then snow, sleet or freezing rain, follow by freezing and thawing that have made the ice a rough mess. Last year it never even got thick enough to walk on.

    I have always wondered how the 1930’s German government gained widespread public compliance and support in their evil quest to purge the country of Jews and create a master race. Well I think we are seeing that play out in 2020 America. I was recently made aware of a “mask shaming” screed some local yahoo embarked on in social media in my town and it was an eye opener. What the moron said with no hesitation was that people who don’t wear masks should not be allowed in public and there were a few who chimed in their support. Even here on this blog we have little white pajama boys who do the bidding of the government because they too demand compliance in their quest for “social justice” or whatever brain damaged construct the Harvard faculty lounge comes up with.

    Why is this? Because human nature never changes. The desire for power and control still resides in the hearts of men and women today as it has in the past, and there are always a lot of mindless followers eager to do the authorities bidding to be “on the right side of history”, or so they presume. Americans should always resist conformity of the masses and unquestioned compliance to any human authority. How many times throughout history has “groupthink” ended badly??

    Ware County, Georgia has broken the Dominion algorithm:

    Using sequestered Dominion Equipment, Ware County ran a equal number of Trump votes and Biden votes through the Tabulator and the Tabulator reported a 26% lead for Biden.

    BOOM. And mind you this is just one machine in one county. Add in the fraudulent ballots, dead people votes, etc., and you have a stolen election.

      That’s not true because there was no “algorithm test” done on any machines in Ware County, Georgia. This was a made up statement by a Trump loyalist on Parler. Wake up. By this time in 2016 I was fully convinced that Trump had legitimately won the Electoral College and lost the popular vote. Did I like it? Heck no! Was I willing to commit a felony, overthrow the electoral process and disenfranchise millions of voters to have my way? Of course not. Trump blew this election by appealing to his base to go to the polls vice mailing in ballots. When voting is made easier Democrats always turn out an win. This is why Republicans, under the guise of rooting out “voter fraud” have tried to make it more and more difficult for People of Color to vote. But as tattered as the Democratic Party is, the fact that 81 million Americans cast a ballot for Joe Biden tells me that this Leviathan of a diverse and inclusive political party is absolutely terrifying the now Trump controlled GOP. Worse, with Trump being a one term President he will preside over the destruction of the GOP if he is challenged in 2024 for the nomination. I do not take likely the possibility that he will pass the torch to Ivanka in 2024 to run against Kamala Harris in an election that will make this one look like a middle school class election. Yes, yes I know you guys all think that Ivanka will “mop the floor” with Kamala but you what they say about counting chickens.

        Did Freddy miss any Lefty talking points? I don’t think so. He dutifully parroted everything from voter suppression of PEOPLE OF COLORRRRRRR!!! to no there is isn’t any voter fraud to 81 million people actually voted for Joe Biden to Trump being “…willing to commit a felony, overthrow the electoral process and disenfranchise millions of voters” to “passing the torch” to Ivanka to fighting this fraud just to make money to…well, you get the idea.

        It’s all blahblahblah Leftist hysteria wrapped around a personality disorder that presents itself as irrational hatred, paranoia and a seriously ugly outlook.

        Well, every single dead voter “disenfranchised” someone whose vote was canceled. Every single double voter “disenfranchised” someone whose vote was canceled. Every single vote cast by a nonresident “disenfranchised” someone whose vote was canceled.. Every single ballot run through a machine more than once “disenfranchised” someone whose vote was canceled.. Every single vote accepted without a signature “disenfranchised” someone whose vote was canceled.. Every single vote counted in secret without witnesses “disenfranchised” someone whose vote was canceled.. Every single vote counted even though it was sent or received after the legal cutoff date “disenfranchised” someone whose vote was canceled. Every single unfolded but allegedly “mailed in” ballot run through a machine “disenfranchised” someone whose vote was canceled. Every single vote paid for “disenfranchised” someone whose vote was canceled. And so on. Every single illegitimate vote “disenfranchised” someone whose vote was canceled.. So stop your pious posturing of concern for people who have been “disenfranchised” or might be.

        When Democrats are in charge, ugly things happen and people get hurt. People voted to put Democrats in charge of the election in some areas and now, yes, they might get hurt if their votes are cast out because of it. Maybe they will learn to keep Democrats away from power.

    Isn’t it amazing that the DOJ spent three years investigating the 2016 Russia collusion claim which was based solely on hearsay and speculation, but within 4 weeks have concluded that there was no fraud in the 2020 election despite first hand eye witnesses?

    Attorney General William Barr is considering stepping down before President Trump’s term ends next month. There is a possibility Barr could announce his departure before the end of the year. It is unclear whether the attorney general’s decision to possibly leave was influenced by Trump’s refusal to concede the election or Trump’s upset over Barr’s acknowledgment last week the Justice Department uncovered no widespread voting fraud. Which led to an Oval Office dressing down

    Get the fuck out Barr. You’re worthless. And it was NOT WIDESPREAD FRAUD moron, it was TARGETED FRAUD.

    This country is in peril. Our elected officials, career federal bureaucrats and corporatists have sold our country out to China and the deal is nearly complete. IF we had an honest media, the video in the link below would be the top story across all networks. Here’s an excerpt, but you have to watch the video.

    The professor said that between 1992 and 2016, China and the US were easily able to fix quarrels because China had “people at the top” of America’s core inner circle of power and influence – but that all ended once Donald Trump was elected as US president.

    This confirms all of our suspicions. This country is so entangled with China, and our ruling class are so compromised with China that this country is in one hell of a mess.

    Now I consider this to be treason of the highest order. Zuckerberg’s willingness to censor for the CCP is treason. Facebook’s and Google’s abuse of foreign nationals and the favorable H1B visa program a compromised Congress recently renewed, is treason. Our academia, media, and compromised elected officials have spent the last 30 years weaponizing the ignorant and the gullible over non existent issues of climate change and systemic racism to keep everyone distracted from what was really going on. Well now we know. Our compromised ruling class, our media, Hollywood, and our academia are enriching themselves and selling out this country and destroying the dreams of our children and grandchildren.

    China owns Dominion, China installed the Pedophile and the slut, the ruling class and the media cheered, and now China will soon own the USA. Unless Patriots stand up and for the sake of our grandchildren’s futures, I pray that happens. And we also need to thank Tucker for exposing this because no other American media outlet is this honest. Watch the video

    And there’s more …

    Fang Fang, or Christine Fang, was reportedly an Intelligence operative with China’s Ministry of State Security. She remained in the California’s Bay Area from 2011 to 2015. Fang reportedly used campaign fundraising, networking, her charm and romantic relationships to get close with politicians. She helped Rep. Eric Swalwell fundraise for his re-election campaign and interacted with him at several events. Fang also helped Tulsi Gabbard fundraise, and became well-known by California’s political scene. She reportedly had a romantic or sexual relationship with two Midwestern elected officials.

    And remember, Diane Feinstein had a Chinese spy as a chauffeur for 20 years …. but now I am beginning to think she probably knew all along and aided and abetted that spying.

      It has occurred to me that having Donald Trump out of the White House might have a beneficial impact on growing awareness of tyranny in this country. All the braindead sheeple who blindly fought to get rid of him now lack the big Orange Man to occupy their tiny little minds, and there is no automatic acceptance of anything that is in opposition to him, meaning that now they can pay attention to what is really going on.

      We’ve talked about Trump Derangement Syndrome, but I think what has defined the masses In the Democrat Party could better be described as Trump Resistance Syndrome—-every single piece of information is first run through the evaluation of “would accepting this be a positive or a negative for Trump?” and then it is rejected or accepted based on the answer. That has been the sole criterion for what these people accept or deny. They will even accept massive election fraud if objecting to it would benefit Trump. They are perfectly happy to see our entire system of government, and the protections it has historically provided for its people, weakened and even destroyed as long as this is seen as something that would go against Trump.

      So if the long list of things rejected or ignored by these sheeple is no longer subject to the TRS scan those things can be considered outside the shadow of what they might mean for Trump. That means that stories about Hunter Biden, for example, can be seen as stories about Hunter Biden, not just as stories that might benefit Trump and therefore automatically discarded.

      It may be that without the symbolic enemy against which every single piece of news has been measured, more news can filter through, and without the automatic emotional response of instantaneous rejection based on perception of whether or not it will help or hinder Trump that information might actually finally be processed.

      I don’t think Joe Biden generates any real loyalty or commitment to him as a person. Certainly Mattress-Back Kammy doesn’t. Their only strength with the electorate was that they were Not Trump. So I don’t think there will be an emotional defense response when negative information comes out about either one of them. For example, I think there would be widespread concern among Democrats to (finally) learn that Biden has a five million dollar interest free loan, with no repayment provisions, from China.

      I would use this new information, and the old information that has been systematically buried, about the Biden relationship with China to pressure Democrats in Congress, as it is increasingly clear that supporting Biden is not going to be in the best interests of our national security.

  19. Amazona December 8, 2020 / 12:58 pm

    When we talk about the scam aspect of the pandemic panic we need to employ the basic concept of qui bono? That is, who benefits?

    Who benefited from the massive panic surrounding this super flu?

    Obviously, the Left did, because it allowed them to simultaneously create chaos and emotional unrest—-crucial elements of a society destabilized enough to be vulnerable to Leftist incursion—while giving them a weapon to use against their biggest enemy, Donald J. Trump. By generating terror on one hand and destroying the economy on the other, the Left has been by far the biggest winner in the pandemic panic, and by playing on the innate stupidity of a huge number of American lemmings they were also able to peddle the bizarre concept that Trump could have controlled the virus if he hadn’t been incompetent, a number that contributed greatly to the Biden vote margin.

    But individual Lefties have profited to an amazing degree. In an earlier post I pointed out that Amazon has to be the biggest winner in the Pandemic Games, as millions of us were denied the ability to shop in person so had to turn to online shopping. Now every time I run back and forth between Colorado and Wyoming I see convoys of Amazon vans, half a dozen at a time, making deliveries. I never saw that before the government stepped in and steered the populace toward online shopping. From March to June 2020, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos saw his wealth rise by an estimated $48 billion. Another estimate is that it rose about $70 billion.

    What do people do when they can’t go to the office? They video conference. The founder of the video-conferencing platform Zoom grew his nest egg by over $2.5 billion, and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s net worth increased by $15.7 billion.

    What role(s) did Big Tech play? Aside from actively contributing to the Biden campaign by silencing information that might reflect badly on Biden and allowing positive information to be published, Mark Zuckerberg dropped between $350 million and $400 million on the allegedly non-profit non-profit Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL). Since September 1, 2020, the CTCL has made at least $63.7 million in grants to election commissions in 18 counties and two cities for what the CTCL calls the coronavirus “safe elections” project.

    More than 99.5 percent of this funding — $63.4 million — went to election commissions in 17 counties and two cities won by Hillary Clinton in 2016. Less than one half of one percent of the funding — a mere $289,000 — went to a county Donald Trump won in 2016, Hays County, Texas, which the president barely won by a margin of 50.4 percent to 49.6 percent.

    A significant portion of these grants — more than $13.9 million — went to election commissions in areas Hillary Clinton won with more than 80 percent of the vote. Ten million dollars went to the city of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, which Clinton won with 84 percent of the vote, $3.5 million went to Wayne County, Michigan, which Clinton won with 96 percent of the vote, and $467,000 went to the election commission in the city of Flint, Michigan, which Clinton won with 84 percent of the vote.

    We have seen this country brought to its knees by a consortium of uber-rich Leftist businessmen and the political structure of the International Left, the former to gain astounding wealth and power and the latter to gain control of the nation and by extent to its people. Both are aided by the active participation of a significant proportion of American media and the powerful weaponry of Big Tech.

    From the Rush Limbaugh Show today:

    RUSH: I want to share with you a pretty good joke. I found a joke while perusing Facebook. A capitalist walked into a bar, sat down between Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders. Just then the 10 o’clock news came on. The lead story was of a man on a ledge of a skyscraper preparing to commit suicide by jumping off of it. Bernie looked at the capitalist and said, “You think he’ll jump?” The capitalist replied, “Yep. I bet he will.”

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie both shot back, “Well, we bet that he won’t.” The capitalist put 10 bucks on the bar, said, “You’re on.” Just as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders placed their money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off the building. He took a plunge toward room temperature. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie were very upset, bitterly, bitterly tried not to hand their money over to the capitalist. They didn’t want to do it. They felt somehow they had been cheated, screwed, tricked.

    With a slight smile, the capitalist said, “Look. I can’t take your money. Keep your money. I saw this earlier on the 5 o’clock news, and I knew the guy jumped. It’s the 10 o’clock news. It happened earlier today. I’ve already seen this.” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shot back, “Well, we saw it, too, but we didn’t think he’d do it again.”

    “We saw it, too, but we didn’t think he would do it again.”

    What’s the lesson? This is how socialists reason. They have seen societies that adopt socialism die repeatedly throughout history. There has not been a single country or culture or society that went socialism and has ever survived. Not a single time has it ever worked. And yet they think when they are in charge, it will work. They cling to the idea that it won’t happen again when they are in charge.

    So here they watch this guy on videotape, they know he dives, they know he commits suicide, but they don’t think he will do it again. This is how socialism happens. There is nothing to argue in favor of it. It has never worked anytime, anywhere. And yet the siren call for controlling people’s lives is just so hard to resist. They can’t resist it. The opportunity to get control of the levers of power and to control what people say and do and don’t do and don’t eat and do eat and drive and where they can go, the lure of that power must be overwhelming.

    • Cluster December 8, 2020 / 4:34 pm
