The FBI is now urging citizens to report their friends and family members if they suspect radicalization…which means, “if you suspect they voted for Trump”. The FBI is becoming a Gestapo; and we learned in 2020 that there are huge numbers of people who are willing to spy on and turn in their fellows…the mask mandates proved that. We get power, the FBI simply has to go. It is a bit of power that we can’t leave lying around.

And, aside: our rule must be Snitches Get Stitches.

Beyond that, as I warned before: be careful what you say and how you say it in any electronic media. They are spying.

A lot of people are agog over Branson…flying about as high as a U2 could fly. It is a vanity project designed to boost stock prices and maybe get some more corporate tax breaks for a man who already has far too much money.

11 year old kid in Belgium gets his degree in physics. Clearly a clever child – but as his goal is immortality, I suspect a great deal was left off his education. Mostly the bit about how if God doesn’t grant us eternal life, you shall not have it. Sorry, that’s just the way it is…if a new heaven and Earth are never to be created, then this heaven and Earth will simply die out. Amazing that they missed that bit in teaching physics. But, then again, most of our educated people don’t really know very much.

Interesting article on Robert E Lee and his place in America. Well worth the read. I have to say, I never felt any sympathy for Lee and I’ve long viewed his virtues under the lens of the fact that, in the end, he sent a hundred thousand men to their deaths to defend slavery. That he, himself, claimed to not like the system just makes it worse in my view: He said that he had no choice but to join Virginia’s (and thus the Confederacy’s) army once Virginia went out. But there was no law in Virginia binding him to serve…but, meanwhile, he had already given his oath, sworn so help him God, to defend the United States.

The bottom line is that we made a huge, national mistake in that we allowed the Confederate leaders – civil and military – to escape justice after the war. Clemency was a requirement, of course: we could not have reconciled without it. But what we did wasn’t clemency: it was letting the people who cause the war – without the slightest justification – to skate. Clemency comes after punishment, not instead of. By letting them all off the hook, we allowed them to very swiftly regain political control of the South and then impose Jim Crow, which made us a nation of liars until 1865.

    We allowed the old “pro slavery masters” to escape without justice last time and yet here we are again allowing the current “pro slave masters” to rule the country with impunity. The current Democrat Cabal is far worse and far more cunning then their forefathers of the Democrat Confederacy. At least their forefathers were honest about how they treated their slaves. Under the guise of compassion, this current Cabal mentally enslaves, financially impoverishes, and emotionally demeans their captives everyday … much more worse abuse.

      Democrats have done a lot of repugnant things over the course of their sordid history, but the destruction of the black family is right up there near the top.

      Democrats have historically been the party of slavery, the party of the Ku Klux Klan, the party of the lynching of blacks, the party of Jim Crow, and the party of segregation. In the 1960s they traded their white sheets for suits and became the party of exploiting poor minorities with never-ending and unfulfilled promises; to the party of perpetual inner-city ghettos; to the party of homeless encampments and used drug needles and human excrement in the streets; to the party of segregating Americans into disparate groups, assigning them victimhood status, and pitting them against each other; to the party of defunding the police and enabling criminals; to the party of cultural rot; to the party of moral relativism; to the party of transforming our electoral process into a system where anyone can vote at any time anywhere with no proof of identity, no proof of citizenship and no way to track how often a person has voted, and where the purging of dead people from the voter rolls is portrayed as voter suppression (YCMTSU!); to the party of distorting history and subverting science (if biology no longer matters, what does?) to advance a political narrative; to the party of open borders and abdication of our national sovereignty; to the party of appeasing our adversaries; to the party of putting the rights and welfare of illegal immigrants above that of American citizens; to the party of ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter domestic terrorists; to the party of subverting the Constitution and the rule of law; to the party of the cancel culture and the censorship of any speech that is critical of or conflicts with its radical Leftist agenda; to the party of a consolidation of power into the hands of a few elites, the exact opposite of the principles upon which the country was founded.

      In my opinion, the Democrat Party has become a criminal enterprise that, at best, enables violence as a political tactic, and enables drug and human trafficking; and, at worst, is complicit in both. At the national level there’s not a single Democrat that I like, admire or respect – not a single person I would piss on if he or she were on fire.

        Agreed. And now it’s time to play make believe again in regards to the uprising in Cuba. Democrats now want us to forget the praise they have heaped on Cuba and their wonderful health care system which is the best in the world according to Bernie Sanders and the quaint old cars and business fronts were adorable according to Vanity Fair. Obama even went down and enjoyed a baseball game with the Castro’s, it was a beautiful moment … two strong armed dictators watching their subjects entertain them.

        But alas, now that “people of color” are revolting against tyranny, time to shift the narrative of the Democrat Cabal to that of “the people”

    Since pretty much anything these days is “racist” maybe we should play the same game, only now a lot of things are “pro slavery”.

    Watch NBA games? Pro slavery.
    Have Apple products? Pro slavery.
    Wear Nike products? Pro slavery.
    Use Samsung products? Pro slavery.
    Drink Coca Cola products? Pro slavery.
    Stay in AirBNB homes? Pro slavery.
    Drive on Bridgestone tires? Pro slavery.
    Use Proctor and Gamble products? Pro slavery

    As my list shows, it wouldn’t be necessary to use products made with forced labor—merely supporting China would do. If “racism” can cast such a wide net, being supportive of slavery should be able to do the same thing.

    Connecting China to socialism or communism won’t affect about half of the politically and historically illiterate in this country, who think “socialism” just means free stuff and “communism” is just an idea, kind of like Antifa. But the entire Left has hitched its wagons to the concept of atonement for slavery, so tying it to contemporaneous slavery might have an impact.

    In the meantime, nations fighting for freedom do so under the American flag—Taiwan, Hong Kong and now Cuba. And at the same time the Loony Left is trying to portray the flag as representative of oppression.

    The first mass anti-government protests in decades in Cuba were partially triggered by energy shortages amid a tighter blockade imposed by former U.S. President Donald Trump, according to the island’s communist leadership.

    Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee, are also planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages.

    (1) “Misinformation” about vaccines is defined exactly the way “misinformation” about voter fraud is—that is, anything that does not toe the radical Leftist party line. If addressed the same way other topics offensive to the Left are already addressed on social media, any commentary that veered from the accepted dogma of the Left would be censored. It’s just that now they want to expand that ability to control what we say to each other to our telephones.

    (2) Once the government has started to censor what is said about one topic, it is practically guaranteed it will start to censor other topics as well. This kind of authority creep is common to government, particularly Leftist governments, which are never satisfied with the scope and nature of their power.

    They “explain” this effort: The goal is to ensure that people who may have difficulty getting a vaccination because of issues like transportation see those barriers lessened or removed entirely.

    So they say it is OK to monitor what people say privately in text messages, or online on social media platforms, to resolve “barriers” like lack of access to a ride to get a vaccine.

    Well, it seems to me that if a person is tech-savvy enough to operate a cell phone and send text messages, or go online to social media sites (not a very high bar) they can probably figure out how to go somewhere—and what does that have to do with the deadly new bogey man of “misinformation”?

Last night on Gutfeld! they had a couple clips of overheated media efforts to incite panic about the new voting laws. The ABC doofus said Biden’s message was “these new laws aim to limit whether your vote counts at all”. That is a step above the shrieks that these laws are intended to keep you from voting in the first place, a necessary step as even a Leftist can see that expanding voting days and places to vote don’t exactly add up to “voter suppression”. They have had to imply that, OK, so you can cast your vote more easily than ever before—but IT WON’T MATTER because there is some vague unnamed unidentified plot to, in some vague unnamed unidentified way, cancel that vote after it is cast. You have to admit, the Republicans having a magical vote-erasing fairy targeting Democrat votes would qualify as a true crisis.

  9. Amazona July 14, 2021 / 1:01 pm

    This is really important. I mean really REALLY important. This could be/should be the beginning of that rebellion the Left have been whining about, but in this case it is not the faux-violent uprising they have invented but the real threat to the Left—the weapons of ideals and principles and ideas, none of which can be successfully fought with Leftist ideology. emphasis mine

    John Sheets, a lover of American history, met Darin Gaub, a well-known leader in the Montana conservative movement. They acknowledged to each other that the conservative movement was too divided in their priorities, and though a mutual demand for action existed amongst conservatives, a common direction did not. They proposed gathering all the separated movements under a unifying idea – the idea of returning the power that had coalesced into the central government back to its rightful place, and to restore liberty through the original intent of the Constitution of the United States and the principles of the Declaration of Independence.

    Together, they wrote a document called the Declaration of Constitutional Consent and founded the organization called Restore Liberty ( ). The declaration they created does not serve to replace any founding document, but instead outlines the original intent of the founders when they wrote those documents: to call to light the strictly limited authority of the federal government, and to enumerate many of the abundant violations of the compact that is the Constitution. Finally, it declares that because the limited authority that is held within central government is solely derived from the consent of the people within the sovereign states, any act of the federal government outside of that consent is illegal, and compliance will not be given.

    This is not a novel idea. In fact, it was dusted off from Thomas Jefferson’s and James Madison’s own declarations in the same vein, as well as the debates over the ratification of the Constitution. It was repeated by many of the key figures of the founding generation.

    For example, Alexander Hamilton (himself a big fan of a powerful central government) said in Federalist 78, “…there is no position which depends on clearer principles, than that every act of a delegated authority contrary to the tenor of the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the constitution, can be valid. To deny this, would be to affirm that the deputy is greater than the principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves; that men, acting by virtue of powers, may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid.”

    In other words, anything the federal government does outside of the powers given to it is invalid and void. It’s up to the citizens and the states to declare them void, though, and to act as if they are indeed void. That concept and promise was the foundation for convincing the delegations from the various colonies to ratify the Constitution. It’s the same principle that gave us the Tenth Amendment as an additional reassurance that all powers not delegated to the government of the United States are reserved to the individual states and the people.

    Restore Liberty has begun collecting signatures on the Declaration of Constitutional consent at their website (and would like people to physically mail the declaration to politicians around the country), have set up state-level leadership in over twenty states, and are actively engaging numerous state legislatures, governors, and influential figures in those states.

    I strongly encourage us, and the people we talk to about these kinds of issues, to sign the consent and to print out and mail the declaration to all our “public servants”.

        “the power that had coalesced into the central government”

        I think the American public is burned out on the relentless viciousness of our political wars, tired of the constant snarling and attacking. I think even those few who watch crap like CNN and MSNBC and the even fewer who believe what they are told are tired of the incessant efforts to make everything melodramatic and hate-driven. Not everyone, but I think a significant number, of Americans will welcome a calm, sane and above all rational and unemotional appeal which identifies the core of our problem as that of the consolidation of power in the hands of a few and the solution of returning it to the people.

    I don’t understand why the Left has started to invoke the Civil War at every opportunity. You would think they would hope Americans would forget that the Civil War ever occurred.

    After all, that’s when hundreds of thousands of mostly white Americans, mostly members of the new Republican Party, banded together and risked their lives, their fortunes and their families to battle the ugly specter of black slavery in the mostly Democrat South, and to save the Union after Southern Democrats chose to violate the Constitution and shatter the Union to protect their ability to continue to enslave black people.

    One would think this would be an era the Democrats would prefer to pretend never happened, especially now that they have assumed the mantle of protector of black people and haters of slavery. One would think Democrats would try to divert attention from the sordid, slave-holding, black-hating history of the party and the sacrifices white Republicans made to end slavery and give black people equal rights under the laws of this country.

    I also don’t understand why they keep reminding us of Jim Crow, another sordid chapter in Democrat racist history. It was Democrats who used what have become known as Jim Crow, which was after all the Democrat imposition of laws and practices in the South of segregating or discriminating against black people, particularly in establishing rules for voting designed to make it harder or impossible for blacks to vote.

    But then little if anything the Democrats do make any sense to me.

Now let’s all imagine for a moment if this announcement would have come from the Trump admin. and how all the WOKE children would react. That thought is actually hilarious, but this action from the WH yesterday is far from humorous and in my opinion is a call to war.

    If you can’t see the what’s going on in this country right now, you are either blind and deaf, or terminally stupid. This is 1930’s Germany.

      The Biden regime ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,will need to be removed, most likely by force.

      Yeah, well, those of us who think the key to a thriving and lasting government is adherence to the Constitution and the processes it has established would not agree that there is any Constitutional way to just remove a sitting, inaugurated, president “by force”.

      No matter how gratifying it might be to the violence cheerleaders hoping for some blood in the streets.

      We have a process if we want to use it. It is slow, it is cumbersome at times, but then the purpose of most processes is to BE slow and sometimes cumbersome, to alleviate the tendency to rush into things. We can take back Congress, we can appoint a good steward for the presidency who will not run for election in 2024, and we can then impeach Biden and then Harris, putting our steward legally and Constitutionally in the White House where he or she can undo the Biden Executive Orders and, working with Congress, do as much as possible to unwind the messes created by this Leftist regime.

      The advantage of an interim president would be that he or she would not have to be concerned about election and could just focus on the job of scraping away the piles of ordure left behind by the Biden era.

      At the same time it would be the job of the party and whatever true journalists are out there to hammer home the corruption of the Democrat Party and its complicit Agenda Media, and explain the tenets and intentions of the upcoming conservative efforts, which would be ……. returning the power that had coalesced into the central government back to its rightful place, and to restore liberty through the original intent of the Constitution of the United States and the principles of the Declaration of Independence.

      It would be to explain that the role of the citizenry is not really to waste its votes on personality contests or even at the national level on issues themselves, but to vote on the kind of government they think is the best blueprint for governing the country—and that a vote for anyone in the Democrat Party is a vote for consolidation of power in the hands of a few, and we’ve seen how that has turned out.

      • Amazona July 16, 2021 / 1:14 pm

        I think it might help if we categorize our problems. That is, a political problem requires a political solution. If an effort at a political solution is met with violence that can’t be dealt with politically (which includes legislation and/or working through established processes) then and only then should a more extreme approach be considered.

        The election issues seem to be a hybrid of both political and legal problems, but fall short of military problems,

        If it was my turn to run the world, I would go through the process I outlined, then appoint actual law enforcement people and prosecute the daylights out of those who broke the law regarding the election, while at the same time having people work on prosecutions for the other crimes that have been ignored because they were committed by elites.

        But nothing is going to be accomplished without getting the citizenry behind us, and that will take a massive and effective media campaign across ALL media, which requires a large and powerful platform.

    Anyone here surprised by this?

    Republican Arizona state senators shared the findings of the Maricopa County presidential election audit during a hearing Thursday.

    Following the 2020 presidential election, amid then-President Donald Trump’s claims the election was “stolen” due to “voter fraud,” the state senators decided to conduct the audit in order to validate the integrity of the county’s election results.

    Among the findings revealed during Thursday’s hearing was the fact there was no record of 74,000 ballots received and included in 2020’s election results ever being mailed out.

    I’m betting the states that conduct honest and thorough forensic audits are going to find an unimaginable level of fraud.

        Do you have a point? Are you trying to make a point? What is it? Upon what is it founded?

        Surely you are not LOLing about that silly chart that purports to list efforts by states to limit the ability of citizens to vote. What, exactly, bothers you? Prohibiting sending absentee ballots or ballot applications to voters unless requested? Do you find that offensive? Troubling? Suspicious? Maybe limiting who may return ballots for others upsets you. Why? Purging the names of dead people and people who have moved from the voter rolls? That’s always been a problem for the Left—–is it one of the things that tripped your giggle-meter?

        This silly game of yours of just dropping Leftist talking points as if they mean something significant or sinister and then tittering about it is tiresome.

        Did the AP cover this?

        Two massive vote dumps occurred in just over an hour after the Arizona polls closed totally ~625,000 and ~1,473,000 votes, respectively.

        The total of those two vote dumps (2,098,619) exceeded the official results total of Maricopa County votes cast (2,089,563) by more than 9,000 votes.

        Biden received more votes in those two vote dumps (1,161,582) than the official vote tally (1,040,774) in Maricopa County. (Was this the reason for that suspicious fire?)

        Those dumps could only have been absentee ballot early voting results that were
        counted legally in the two weeks before Election Day, as late-arriving absentee ballots and election day in-person voting results could not possibly have been included in those two dumps uploaded just over an hour after the polls closed.

        Those vote dumps were time-stamped making it impossible that those dumps came from any county other than Maricopa, as no other Arizona county delivered more than 525,000 votes, and any two or more counties necessary to contribute to either of those dumps would have had to time their uploads down to the second (an impossibility).

        What did the AP have to say about In-person voting in Maricopa County on Election Day totaled 167,000 votes cast, per multiple sources (here and here); how were those in-person votes accounted for when the two early voter dumps identified above already exceeded the official number of votes cast in the county?

        What is the source of the AP claim that Maricopa County, which is subject to the disputed ballot review ordered by state Senate Republicans, has identified just one case of potential fraud out of 2.1 million ballots cast. That was a voter who might have cast a ballot in another state?

        If you think you have to remind us that you have a superficial and shallow interest in and understanding of what it going on in the country, don’t worry about it—it has never occurred to any of us that anything else but this is true.

        At least a bucket of piss, warm or not, has heft to it, and once served a purpose. Fielding is such an intellectual lightweight he has to have virtual weights attached when he tries to join a conversation, to keep him from just floating away (as his “ideas” tend to do) and so far there is no evidence whatsoever that he ever served any purpose at all. Piss at least once filtered toxins from the body, while Fielding seems to think his calling is to recycle toxins—-and then titter about how darling he is. tee hee hee.

    A couple weeks ago I commented that General Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, would not be able to find a hole deep enough to hide if when the SHTF. Fielding, our resident (to be honest, I’m not sure what Fielding is) asked what General Milley was guilty of. Last night Tucker Carlson laid out a pretty good case against Milley.

    I know that an inauguration can’t be undone, but I also understand the legal concept of rejecting the fruit of the poisonous tree, and it’s hard to believe that we would still be stuck with an out-of-control tyrant for another three years even with proof he does not legitimately occupy the office.

    There has to be a way to mitigate the damage. I guess the most likely would to retake the House so we have the Speaker’s office, then impeach both Biden and Harris and move the presidency to the House for two years. There would be a lot of political fallout for this, but it could be mitigated with a massive publicity campaign pointing out that it is the only Constitutional way to deal with a fraudulent election once an inauguration has taken place, and is not revenge for Democrat impeachments.

    If necessary we could agree that Trump would not run again. Personally, I think De Santis can do what Trump would do, or come very close to it, and as I have been saying I think Trump’s biggest threat to the Left now would be as kingmaker and owner of CNN, giving us a media platform big enough to get our message out.

    The AP mourns, about the cowardly Dems from Texas (who very publicly ran away, on a private jet) who are trying to make some kind of point by making sure the Texas legislature doesn’t have a quorum so can’t debate a new voting bill, Democratic lawmakers who fled Texas to block a restrictive voting bill are living a life of scrutiny, stress and secrecy.

    OK, skip the journalist sin of editorializing about the Texas voting bill, and go the trauma these people are suffering: they “are living a life of scrutiny, stress and secrecy.”

    My favorite response to this drivel is this:

    Tom Knighton

    They’re living a life of secrecy to the point that I know what one of them is eating every day and I’ve seen another’s underwear.

    They’re doing secrecy very, very wrong.
