Freedom Must Destroy Tyranny

The word anti-fascist was coined by Soviet propaganda in the 1930’s. The idea behind it was to convince everyone to join with the Communists against the Fascists. It was a clever bit of phrasing. What decent person, after all, would refuse to be anti-fascist? It started suckering people immediately and continues to do so to the present moment. But whenever anyone on the Left says something, you always have to look very carefully at it – what they really mean by it. What is most emphatically not meant by anti-fascist is “pro-freedom” or “pro-democracy”. Wouldn’t really work, now would it? No sane person could look at the Soviet Union and say that was the home of freedom and democracy. But they were anti-fascist! Very much so. Much like one criminal gang is opposed to another criminal gang.

To me, it was this phrase – along with the various “popular front” movements in Europe at the same time (which was no more than anti-fascism put into practice) – that was the start of the real Marxist infiltration of Western society. To be sure, the Marxists had been around and both the Labour Party in Britain and the Social Democrat Party in Germany paid lip service to Marxist ideology but there was no real purchase in the social organism for Marxist ideology. It was outside; alien. Your basic Marxist in the West prior to the mid-1930’s was a political crank fighting tedious internal battles over Party orthodoxy and producing books and magazines hardly anyone ever read. But anti-fascism allowed entry: the Marxists could now get together with all the other anti-fascists and start to turn any group joining the anti-fascist movement towards Marxism. It was a gigantic mistake.

It is never good enough to merely state what you are against. Stating you are against a Fascist or Nazi government is actually fairly meaningless unless you then state what you are for. The Marxists got around this issue by asserting the threat of Fascism and Nazism was so dire that nobody should bother with anything other than opposing them. They were taken at their word – naturally enough, the Marxists didn’t limit their efforts to fighting fascism: they took the opportunity to expand their own power and influence. You can understand why people fell for this. But, the 1930’s were a long time ago: it is time to reassess.

What we are for is freedom. But even in this we have to be specific. The Left has moved so far into the fabric of our society that the meaning of the word “freedom” has become unclear. Deliberately so, of course. So, too, with words like “justice” and “democracy”. You and I of the Right know what we mean but at lot of regular folks are unclear on the words – because the waters have been muddied. A person of the Left holds that freedom means freedom from lack. That justice means the oppressed get their pound of flesh. That democracy means only the Left can win. We have to state it clearly: we are for the freedom of the individual to live life as they see fit; that justice means a person gets the benefit or punishment they have earned; that democracy means the people ruling themselves.

But here’s the problem: how can be propagate our ideas? The Left – the Marxists – have gained control of all the levers of power and nearly the entire public square. The Left controls the media, the schools, the NGOs, the bureaucracy, the corporations. Being that they are of the Left, they use these tools to broadcast their lies endlessly into the minds of the people – and only at times, when really pressed to it, do the people rebel against this. The truckers in Canada are showing that the people can be pushed too far…but while we’ve watched in delight as these protests have developed, it must be noted that for the most part the media isn’t covering it. When they do, it is to downplay the size of the protest and to hint darkly that they are inspired by racists or agents of foreign powers. Eventually, the truckers will have to go home…and when they do, all that will be left in the public square is the lies the Left will say about them. We’re really up against it.

But I also think we can win. But to do so will require us to do some things which many will find distasteful. It will require a major shift in how we think and what policies we pursue. Because we’re not just trying to win an election – we’re trying to win an ideological battle. More accurately, we’re trying to carry out a counter-revolution. We lost: understand that. The USSR fell in 1991 but the battle against Marxist ideology was lost, at the latest, by 1975. We had allowed it to ooze through all our institutions and capture them. They didn’t have total control (they still don’t) but by 1975 they were so firmly entrenched in power they were able to control policy even when officially not in power and they were able to ensure their views were increasingly the only views in the public square. That even when we debated, we argued on their terms. This has to be ripped out, root and branch.

It isn’t enough to be anti-fascist. One has to be pro-freedom. And as Lincoln said ages ago, freedom and anti-freedom cannot coexist. One or the other must triumph. Just as we wouldn’t tolerate an avowed or even secret Nazi in a position of power, so we must become intolerant of an avowed or secret Marxist holding power. They have to go; all of them, from every position and once removed they must never be allowed back into any position of power. We must become pro-freedom. Not just in favor of it in theory, but actively insisting that only freedom is allowed: that people only hear about freedom. That freedom be taught from kindergarten up. That anyone who argues under any pretense that freedom must give way is to be ostracized from society.

To do this, we cannot tolerate the forces of tyranny. People who adhere to Fascist, Nazi or Marxist ideology must not be able to obtain employment in the United States. Certainly not in government, schools or publicly traded corporations. Books and other publications advocating for these poisonous ideologies should not be for sale except to people with a scholarly interest in the subject matter. Any discussion of these ideologies must always start with and continually emphasize the number of people murdered by adherents of these wicked beliefs.

Tall hill to climb, I know. But it must be the end goal. The ideal. If you want to do anything, the first thing you need is a theory: an ideal. A dream, as it were. You must know where you want to go before you start on the road. We want a land of freedom – a place where people live free and only want to live free. You don’t get this merely by asking – and you can’t get it while massively wealthy and powerful interests are allowed to work against your ideal. If freedom is good – and we believe it is good; an inherent good – then anything opposed to freedom must go down.

But, you may ask, doesn’t freedom mean the ability to see all ideas and choose among them? I think we should all have learned our lesson by now: the crackpot spouting anti-freedom nonsense in one age is the precursor to the narrow-minded, ideological bigot in the next telling you that you’d better get your mind right or else.

Freedom is very broad. It is why it is preferable to any other status. But any human thing has its limits. Don’t be so open minded that your brain falls out, right? We went entirely too far in the direction of tolerance of anti-freedom ideology. To get back to freedom, we are going to have to get a bit narrow for a while. Still not nearly as narrow as a Marxist, but a lot more narrow than we have been. We will not, of course, ever load up our opponents in box cars and send them off to death or slavery. We won’t even stop them from believing something as stupid as “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need”. We’re just not going to allow such a person to have a say in what goes on. We’re going to make it difficult to believe such drivel as a Marxist, Nazi or Fascist believes.

Without getting into too much detail, the primary key for us in this effort to wipe out the forces of tyranny is to take away their money. I’ve talked about this before, but it can’t be emphasized enough. Being the dimwit materialists they are, money is what makes their whole world go ’round. Take away their money…and, honestly, they’ll just have to get real jobs. That, right there, is a major death blow against their beliefs. One thing which is common among Nazis, Fascists and Communists is their desire to worm their way into well-paid sinecures where they can advance their twaddle without having to produce anything worthwhile. People who work for a living are only very rarely against freedom: people who earn their own keep wish to keep what they own and do with it as they wish. It is the college professor or high level bureaucrat who has never had to produce anything useful who sees himself as destined to tell everyone how to live.

But taking away their money is going to be a hard pill for many freedom-loving people to swallow. Because it isn’t just about kicking a Marxist professor out of college. Would that it was that easy! No: it is a lot more than that. It is mass terminations of government bureaucrats; it confiscating the assets of NGOs and private colleges; it is forcing corporations to break up into smaller units, it is confiscating most of the wealth of Leftist billionaires. It is arresting people – quite a lot of them – and charging them with criminal negligence over things like that bridge collapse the other day (the money was provided for repairs – tax payer money – and it was diverted to other things…clearly things which just lined the pockets of the well connected politically); we have 10,000 cases we can find before we even start looking hard for such things. It is providing criminal and civil penalties for people who lie in broadcast, print and on line.

Can you do it? I know I can. I see things clearly now. I only remain free if the people who want to destroy freedom lose. Our choice is now. What will we decide?

    The truckers in Canada are showing that the people can be pushed too far

    One of the problems we’re faced with is that in most red states people are not being pushed too far, and in most blue states the people are so used to being pushed that most of them wouldn’t resist even if they had the means. I’ve said before that I think most people have a mental line in the sand. They may not have it written down, but just like the Canadian truckers, they know when government has crossed that line. I think it speaks volumes about the character of Conservatives in general that we haven’t assembled hit squads to take out the evilest members of our society.

    • Amazona January 30, 2022 / 1:12 pm

      You are right in saying that people in red states haven’t been pushed too far, but that is because we elect Republicans to our state governments. I think it is possible that people in at least one blue state might finally be at the tipping point, if the latest insanity in California gets approved. This is a letter to Californians:

      Right now, legislation is quickly making its way through the legislature that will dramatically change healthcare in the State of California.

      AB 1400 would create a government-run single-payer system called CalCare. Its companion measure, ACA 11, is its funding mechanism which would, with the approval of the voters, amend California’s Constitution to impose unprecedented tax hikes.

      If these pass, the government will be in charge of your health coverage.

      If that happens, here are some things to consider. Government-run health coverage would:
      Eliminate private insurance
      Eliminate Medicare
      Take away health plans negotiated by unions
      Eliminate health coverage choice – no more “if you like your plan, you can keep it.”
      Be governed by an unelected nine-member executive board

      CalCare also comes with the largest tax increase in California’s history, an estimated $163 billion, according to the California Taxpayers Association. It also allows the Legislature to raise taxes further with a simple majority vote, and there is no ceiling. This bill eliminates Prop. 13’s two-thirds vote requirement, and circumvents education funding requirements that were approved by voters in Prop. 98.

      The Tax Foundation reports, “this will increase taxes by $12,250 per household.” Payroll taxes would increase on employees making more than $49,000 a year, and personal income taxes would increase on those with over $149,500 a year. Thanks to California’s highest-in-the-nation cost of living, $49,000 isn’t enough to make ends meet in many parts of the state.

      California’s employers and businesses, who already pay some of the highest taxes in the nation, would also face new payroll and gross receipt taxes. These taxes will place an undue burden on the middle-class. Californians and small businesses are already being crushed by an ever-worsening affordability crisis.

      Costs for previous single-payer proposals were estimated at $400 billion per year. The ENTIRE 2022-23 state budget proposal is $286 billion.

      And Mayor Pete, evidently having lost the baby weight though still lactating, has surfaced with a plan to lower speed limits as part of his commitment to end all traffic deaths. Yes, while Joe is promising to end Covid, Pete is promising to make sure no one ever dies in another traffic accident. But I don’t see lower speed limits getting much support from anyone, especially in the Heartland where we routinely drive long distances.

    Interesting perspective on how to approach the inevitable SCOTUS nominee hearings.

    I agree with this analysis, as long as nominees are questioned strongly about their attitudes toward the Constitution, their other qualifications and so on. It is a given that a Biden nominee will be approved, unless for some reason the voting is postponed until after the midterms. So really, all we can do is make the point that the appointment is based on Identity Politics, not on merit or achievement.

    One question I would like to see is something like “Do you believe that characteristics like intelligence, integrity and competence are related in any way to the melanin content of someone’s skin?” Accompanied by “Do you agree with the dream of Dr. Marin Luther King Jr. that we should be judged by the content of our character and not the color of our skin?”

    If Freedom is to destroy Tyranny, Conservatives must destroy Democrats. It’s a direct 1:1 ratio.

    The real President spoke the other night in TX to a massive turnout. Hundreds of thousands of people still recognize Trump as the legitimate President, which he is and nothing will drive Democrats and the media more crazy than saying this truth unapologetically every day. Get in their face and argue and if they bring a knife, we bring a gun. F**K these people.

    Excellent COVID hospital guide. Sad that we need such a thing.

    • Amazona January 31, 2022 / 11:49 am

      It is beyond sad—it is tragic.

      When we talk about the increasing divide in this country, we tend to think we’re talking about politics. But what I am seeing is the lack of faith or trust in institutions that we have always felt we could count on.

      Who would ever have dreamed of a nation where people have to be afraid to go to a hospital ER for fear of being forced into admission, forced to take treatments they fear and don’t want, and being kept against their will? If I were to write a novel of a dystopian United States I would have this as a plot line. The very idea of having to post signs around a hospital bed stating that all conversations will be recorded, that certain medications are not to be administered, just to protect ourselves from the hospital staff and procedures is chilling. It’s like something out of the Twilight Zone.

      And this is a divide that won’t heal, because even when Covid is simply an accepted annoyance, like the flu or colds, there will still be the fact that some doctors and nurses felt they had the right to treat people this way. I know, and usually agree with, the concept that once Hitler or Nazis are introduced into a discussion it is proof the person has nothing else to argue, but in this case I do see a parallel between what is happening here and around the world and the most brutal and oppressive regimes in history. The Nuremburg Code was developed specifically in response to the forced use of experimental drugs on unwilling people, yet here we see nation after nation using the might and power of government to force unwilling people to take experimental drugs, in clear violation of that Code.

      How far back in our history would we have to go to find a time when this would be considered unbelievable? A year. Just one year.

        I mentioned to Cluster in a private email my recent experience trying to contact my family doctor to find out what, if any, early treatment COVID protocol he has. I suspect pretty much everyone is going to get COVID at some point, and it would be nice to not have to worry about our doctor telling us that we should stay home until we get really sick and then go to the hospital where they’ll put us in the ICI on a ventilator. I called his office last week, but my call was intercepted by what sounded like a young male who was obviously screening his calls, something that’s NEVER happened before. After asking a bunch of questions about the nature of my call, he claimed he was forwarding the call to our doctor’s nurse, but, after waiting on hold for nearly 15 minutes, I gave up. Prior to this, the longest I’d ever had to wait to talk to a nurse was 2 or 3 minutes. Our doctor used to be an independent general practice family doctor, but he and most other local doctors, including specialists, became affiliated with the largest hospital in the area about 6 or 7 years ago. I’ve talked to friends who go to doctors in that group, and they’ve all had similar experiences. The hospital simply doesn’t allow any affiliated doctors to think or act outside the box. A sad day in America.

        Three years ago I left my family doctor who I had been seeing for years and started going to a DPC doctor in the area. DPC’s (Direct Primary Care) are fairly new and they are family doctors who don’t require insurance. It’s direct pay; $75/mo for individuals and $150/mo for family of four. No need for insurance, no co pay at time of appointment and I can get a same day appointment any time if needed. There are no forms to fill out and I am greeted by name when I go … it’s a fantastic experience and I encourage everyone to look into it in your area.

        A little sanity peeking out? I wonder if this guy will lose his job for this.

        “The director of global infectious diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital is predicting what was unthinkable less than a month ago: The end of the pandemic. Dr. Edward Ryan made stunning and encouraging comments on the Omicron variant that give hope for a return to normalcy.

        Among these: Omicron will make boosters unnecessary. The COVID virus will join the ranks of the ‘common cold.’ And the latest wave will enter ‘clean up mode’ shortly. ‘We are fighting the last war with COVID and should be pivoting back to normal life,’ the summary of Dr. Ryan’s comments states. ‘Spring/Summer will be really nice!”

        A great and timely article: How My View of the Holocaust Was Altered During COVID by Roger Simon.

        From the article: Referring to the German population accepting the Nazis, he said

        … I had trouble understanding how modern nations filled with a civilized, often highly educated, populace could turn so extraordinarily barbarous.

        I understood in books and movies, but not in a real way, not in life. I assumed you had to have been there at the time to do that.

        Now, I have.

        I’m speaking, of course, of what we have experienced in our lives during the pandemic, if that’s what it was. More accurately, I would call it, in the words of this media company, the time of the CCP virus.

        What we have witnessed throughout the world is millions, really billions, of people taking orders without thinking or, in the majority of cases, even seriously investigating what they have been told.
        ……………………

        We live in a culture of pervasive obedience, what has recently been called mass formation psychosis but you don’t need a fancy term to see it. It’s everywhere, people giving up their personal agency, even their ability to reason, out of fear and willingly adhering to the mass.

        A generation of conformists has been created as never in our history. This is more like Nazi Germany, or, for that matter, communist China, than we would like to admit.

        He doesn’t mention the fact that about half of the Democrats would happily sentence “unvaxxed” people to detention, which brought to mind the concentration camps of Eastern Europe, simply for refusing to bend the knee to State edicts.

    From Sept 19, 2019 –

    At its annual summit in New York, the ID2020 Alliance announced the roll out of a digital identity program with the Government of Bangladesh; Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; and new partners in academia, government and humanitarian relief.
    ……………………….

    “With the opportunity for immunization to serve as a platform for digital identity, the program harnesses existing birth registration and vaccination operations to provide newborns with a portable and persistent biometrically-linked digital identity. The program will also explore and assess several leading infant biometric technologies to offer a persistent digital identity from birth, unlocking a potential global public good.”

    We can pretend this is only about Bangladesh, but really, does that make any sense? After all, the statement admits it is about “global good”. Just who ARE these “new partners in academia, government and humanitarian relief”?

    • Cluster February 1, 2022 / 9:24 am

      Digital identity !!! That’s it. The continued obsession with vaccines doesn’t even pass the smell test anymore, but when you realize that it’s not about vaccinating, and all about tracking, then it all makes sense. And just like OnStar has a kill switch to demobilize the car, what kind of switch will be put in the “digital identity” chip?? They just may shut you down if you don’t act right.

    A statement from the legitimate POTUS:

    “Highly respected Dinesh D’Souza, working together with Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote, just released a trailer to their new movie, “2,000 Mules,” that shows the world exactly how the 2020 Presidential Election was Rigged and Stolen. The movie exposes the lies of the Democrats, RINOs, and Fake News who say it was the “most secure election in history.” It was, perhaps, the least secure in history. The ballot box was stuffed, and stuffed like never before-and it’s all on video. Ballots were trafficked and sold in a massive operation in each Swing State. The evidence is so damning, what will the cowards who sat and did nothing about the stolen election say now? The way our votes were taken away is a disgrace to our Nation. It must be fixed.”

    Civil disobedience is still required on all levels. “Get in their face and argue”, and “if they bring a knife, we bring a gun” – just to quote a former Democrat President.

    Medical tyranny continues …

    America will become first country to vaccinate babies as young as six months as Pfizer asks for authorization to give the shot to children under 5: Experts say it’s NOT necessary because young people make up less than 0.1% of COVID deaths

    • Amazona February 2, 2022 / 1:02 pm

      It’s even worse—the United States government is pressuring Pfizer to do this.

      From the New York Times: “In a highly unusual move, federal regulators pressed Pfizer and BioNTech to submit a request for emergency authorization, people familiar with the situation said, even though two doses failed to produce the hoped-for immune response among children aged two to four in a clinical trial.”

      Why is the federal government pressuring a private drug company to pursue authorization of a drug the company’s own research has shown to be ineffective? Even the NYT finds this “highly unusual” and given the increasing evidence that repeated doses of the drug might have an adverse effect on the immune system doesn’t it make sense for the government to step back and let the proper steps be taken by qualified researchers instead of pressing for a decision that might have a terrible outcome for our children’s futures?

    An update to my comment a couple of days ago, earlier in this thread about my efforts to contact my family doctor to find out what, if any early treatment protocol he has for patients who test positive for COVID, particularly elderly patients. A friend suggested that I post my question on my MyChart account (online medical records site), which I did yesterday. I posted the following:

    I believe it’s likely that almost everyone will get COVID at some point, and I’m just doing some pre-planning. Dr. Beitzel has always struck me as someone who puts his patients first. I’d like to know what, if any early treatment protocol he has for patients who test positive for COVID, particularly elderly patients like myself and my wife.

    My doctor’s nurse called me this morning and said that my wife and I should get vaccinated and get the booster if we’ve already been vaccinated (they know we’ve been vaccinated, so WTF!). We should (I’m not making this up) “continue to social distance, wash our hands regularly, wear masks, and stay away from people who are infected. Watch for fever or respiratory signs.
    Get tested and then treatment will depend on symptoms and risks”

    I told her we had both been vaccinated but had not gotten the booster and didn’t plan to. I added that if we had known everything we know now back in January 2021, we would not have gotten the vaccine. I expected her to ask why I felt that way, but, instead, she said “I understand why you might feel that way.” They know folks, THEY KNOW!!

    • Amazona February 2, 2022 / 2:38 pm

      Of course they know. Frontline Doctors has a website that gives instructions on how to deal with Covid at home.

      Click on the contact a physician button below. Fill out the form and pay $90. The physician will call you typically within 2-7 days (not counting weekends). Please keep your phone with you. After your telemed appointment, the pharmacy will contact you for your payment information and mailing address to send the prescription to you. If you have questions for the pharmacy, please use the pharmacy contact information which was provided to you in an email or text confirming that your prescription was sent to the pharmacy and they will be able to help you.

      Due to the extraordinarily high demand for AFLDS telemedicine services and medications, the pharmacy has been unable to meet demand as quickly as it would like. They are addressing this issue and it will be improved, however in the meantime please note the following.

      First – patients with symptoms will be prioritized. If you do not have symptoms, please do not say you do – you have time to receive your meds and you will still receive them relatively quickly. We are asking everyone to act honorably knowing they will be able to get what they need.

      Second – typically the physician is able to see you the same day or the next day, and the pharmacy typically sees you within 24 hours of that. Please be patient as it now may take up to 2-7 days.

      Third – as a reminder – our physician services are available for payment only because we still have a free market which is allowing you to buy something you want for a fair price. We have received thousands of emails from non-Americans who would pay exorbitant fees to stand where you freely stand: the ability to purchase something useful. So we do not answer any emails from people asking us about this service being covered by insurance. We are outside the insurance system specifically because the insurance system is blocking you from obtaining what you need for your good health.

      Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), Ivermectin, and other COVID-19 medications can be obtained by prescription in the USA in almost every state. AFLDS-trained and licensed physicians are available via telemedicine for a short consultation. Our physicians know that Zinc plus either HCQ and ivermectin are effective both prophylactically and when used early. The telemedicine physician will review your history. Almost all patients can safely take these medications. However it is up to each physician, in consultation with the patient, to determine the best course of action.

      The website also has information on where it is easiest to get drugs like IVM and HCQ—Colorado is listed as “nearly impossible” but Wyoming is with a prescription, Indiana is difficult. There is so much information on this website, from prophylactic protocols to early treatment, etc. as well as where you can get a teleconference and online prescriptions.

      I saw this, and it was one of the things that prompted this comment on another site:

      I think the biggest problem is that of certifying uncertifiable vote tallies. It doesn’t matter why the vote tally is not legitimate, it doesn’t matter if it is due to a purposeful manipulation of ballots or a simple mistake meaning a significant number of ballots was lost, or any other thing. What matters is that the final count can’t possibly be stated to be accurate. There was a lot of purposeful confusion created by the odd insistence that if there was no way to determine which votes were invalid, or which were manipulated, or who should have gotten them, then the count had to be accepted. But this makes no sense. It is the very fact that there IS no way to know who should have or would have gotten X number of votes that means the total can’t be certified as accurate because it is an admission that there is no way to know who got how many votes.

      To “certify” means to attest to accuracy. If I know the odometer on my car has been replaced, I can’t legally certify the mileage the new one shows, because although I don’t know how many miles were on the old one I do know the new one is not a true count. The mileage shown in not certifiable even though I don’t have a different number to provide.

      I think we need to first impress upon state legislatures that their duty is not to rubber-stamp any vote tally given to them but to ascertain, to the best of their ability, that the count is true and accurate. No, it’s not their job to audit the election, but certainly if it is known that a certain number of ballots were cast due to an illegal change in voting rules, for example, then the legislature can determine that votes cast based on that illegitimate rule change can’t be counted. It’s not a matter of not knowing who got them, or should have gotten them, It is a concept based on the principle of the fruit of the poisonous tree—-“Under the fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine evidence obtained from illegal arrest, search or seizure is not admissible in the court of law.” Votes cast under an illegally created rule can’t be considered valid, ie: Pennsylvania. Not knowing who got them means the entire vote tally is tainted.

      Once this is established—that every state legislature understands its legal and moral duty to certify only that which can reasonably be determined to be accurate—many if not most of the shenanigans we know occur will simply be less appealing. Citizens will demand strict election rules and adherence to them, to prevent their votes from being disregarded. Things like the videos of paid operatives dumping hundreds of harvested ballots in drop boxes will mean the entire state’s votes will be dismissed and the state will lose its Electors.

    Biden’s pledge today to cure cancer, and Buttigieg’s recent pronouncement to end all traffic deaths reminds of a time many years ago when my oldest was running around the house in his super hero cape and as he was headed out the front door one night his mom asked him where exactly he thought he was going, to which he replied, “to save the world” !! My wife looked at me, then back at him and said “how about if you clean your room first?”

    I think Joe and Pete could learn a good lesson there.

      I think it’s fascinating that the political movement that has caused so many more deaths in the last 150 years than any other single political entity in history is now promising to keep us all alive forever.

      The Left promises Utopia, and that the government’s job is to take care of us, and claims that government is always the answer. But all they accomplish is chaos and misery. Oh, and killing people.

        And keep in mind, the people who claim they can stop the climate from adversely changing, are the same people who are always caught off guard by winter storms.

        More and more I am recognizing narcissism as an essential, and probably main, component of Leftism. Oh, not in the leaders—they are all about power. But in the followers, who seem convinced that they are just so special that they can decide what is true and what is not, and then impose their beliefs on others. They also believe that they have the power to control the natural forces of Nature.

        They also seem to believe that they can influence others. Take the recent temper tantrum on Masked Singer. When a contestant was unmasked and proved to be Rudy Giuliani, two of the pompous snowflakes stormed off in “protest”. They were just big mad that someone they didn’t like got to be on the show, and seemed to think that anyone else in the universe gave a flip about how their feels got bruised. It was like “How DARE you do something I don’t like !!??” from a couple of very very minor “celebrities” whose only gig for a very long time has been to sit and emote over people in costumes. Either or both could be replaced by any on a long list of has-beens and almost-weres who could also wipe away a tear and carry on about how a performance by a giant spider touched their hearts and changed their lives. But the thing is, these self-obsessed Libs really do think they MATTER—that people care what they think or how they feel.

    Rand Paul is partly right, but wrong in an important way. He says:

    “The main thing we need to do, and that Dr. [Anthony] Fauci’s still not doing, is promote the idea that there are therapeutics and people need to come in [to the hospital] early,” Paul told host Rob Finnerty on “Wake Up America.”

    Where he is wrong is his apparent lack of awareness of the fear of hospitals that is growing in this country, as people become aware of the fact that some hospitals literally hold people captive, refusing to allow them to leave while refusing to use any treatment not approved and promoted by the Medical Establishment.

    Here is, finally, a video of true insurrection—if by “insurrection” you mean “taking over the role of government”. This is a video that will make your day.

    A repeat traffic law offender and convicted felon ran a red light in North Las Vegas at 100 MPH and caused a crash that killed 9 people. Including, fortunately, the driver, as death is apparently the only way to keep him off the road. Nevada certainly hasn’t had any luck in doing this—not that they have tried very hard.

    The driver had been ticketed many times for speeding, but just got fined.

    However, an NTSB board member thinks he might have the solution to high-speed crashes. Chapman said the safety board may focus on what he called “a comprehensive strategy to eliminate speed-related crashes.”

    “Tragedies such as this compel us to evaluate the potential for improving safety by incorporating speed-limiting technology in all vehicles,” the safety board member told reporters, including high-performance sports cars.

    Yes, the government agency’s “comprehensive strategy” is to limit how fast cars can go. Put another way, instead of addressing the issue of repeat offenders and keeping THEM off the streets, the government agency’s “solution” is to limit the freedom of everyone else. Oh, he tossed in “high-performance sports cars” to imply that this was intended only apply to a few, but what he said was “IN ALL VEHICLES”.

    This ties in so well with Mayor Pete’s plan to simply avoid all traffic deaths, period. I wonder what the new accepted speed limit will be……..Jimmah Cahtah got the speed limit down to 55, and people still died. Of course, he didn’t actually alter the vehicles to make it impossible for them to go faster than that.

    The video I recommend is at this web site. The featured article is pretty good—-it’s basically calling out the State Department for saying “It’s true because I say it’s true”—but in the thumbnails of other videos is one about DeSantis calling out a snotty reporter,

    Watch this and see if Ron DeSantis can hold his own and go on offense. I think he is every bit as effective and tough as Trump, but much more coherent.

    BEIJING—In preparation for the 2022 Winter Olympics, the US bobsled team has named their #1 sled “Biden” because nothing has taken America downhill faster.

    “You want to have every advantage possible in bobsledding,” US team member Hakeem Abdul Saboor said. “We just feel that with the name ‘Biden’ on the front of our sled, we’re going to go downhill faster than anything’s ever gone.”
