I’m sorry I haven’t posted! Been busy. But, here I am again!

Anyways…

The Democrat response to the first night of the GOP Convention was to burn down Kenosha, Wisconsin. I’m not sure this will work to the Democrats’ advantage. This came up too quickly; shooting video gets out and almost instantly very violent riots occur which seem to deliberately stay away from anything which could provoke an independent federal response. To me, Antifa had the plan ready to go – and activists on standby – and were just waiting for some event to happen which could be cast in “racist white cops shoot a black man” terms. Someone is controlling these riots and funding them. We should find out who.

Meanwhile, the ratingsfor the GOP’s first night buried the DNC’s first night. If Joe is up 12, why are so many more people tuning in to the GOP than the Democrats?

Reports of a Coronavirus reinfection; where you get it, again. Who knows? It looks, though, like the ‘Rona will be with us forever…as perhaps a more deadly flu and even if we get a vaccine it likely won’t be 100% effective and will have to be modified over time like the flu vaccine is. It is time to end the lockdowns entirely and go about our normal lives.

Pelosi thinks you’re an enemy of the State. Which is, in a sense, true: we are rather opposed to the government, aren’t we? But we aren’t enemies of the people…as she is.

The MSM is all excited about Republicans for Biden. What they don’t realize is that these “Republicans” are precisely the reason we turned to Trump. What it really shows is that it is Trump vs Establishment in 2020. The Dems, the MSM and Never Trump have all set it up so that the incumbent President gets to run as an outsider.

Harris was picked because of her skin color and gender. That’s it. That is all she brings to the table. It is all she’s ever brought to the table. She has no accomplishments; no intellect…nothing except the right amount of melanin, the right internal plumbing and a (D) after her name in California.

In a normal world, President Trump would get a Peace Prize for the dealhe brokered between UAE and Israel…which does seem to be the precursor to the general recognition of Israel by the Arab powers. Only Iran and their proxies will be left out in the cold. Keep in mind: this was done and no one had a clue. In the crucial matters, the Trump Administration does not leak. Keep that in mind the next time an MSMer says “sources” are saying something. They either don’t have a source, or they are being played.

Let’s hope it works out…and now I think I see why Jared Kushner has been targeted of late. He’s been central to Trump’s dealings with the Middle East and someone got wind that something as in the works…someone who doesn’t like Trump and Israel, and so tried to play up an anti-Semitic angle against Trump’s son-in-law.

Sean Ono Lennon is…a bit red-pilled. I’ve been seeing his comments of late on Twitter…he’s, of course, got a deep respect for his father but he also doesn’t seem to have any illusions. He also seems to have a first-rate mind. Credit Yoko with raising a kid who knows how to think.

The thing about ‘Rona testing “errors” is that the error always seems to be an over-count. They are just making stuff up, guys.

A man murders, execution style, a 5 year old child. Rather newsworthy event, don’t you think? But you haven’t heard it, have you? Because the child was white and the man was black. Had it been the other way around, you would have heard about it – endlessly. I bring this up not to shove more horror into your daily life but to once again, and very graphically, illustrate what I’ve been saying: the MSM lies. They lie all the time. They lie about everything. No matter how one looks at this story, it is a major story…it is something for headlines and to lead the national TV reports and for a series of think pieces…but, nothing. Because it doesn’t fit the Narrative. Nothing outside the Narrative will be reported in the MSM…what you are getting in the MSM is a completely false idea of what is actually happening in America. The riots and the ‘Rona and all of that: just an op. The MSM saying what the DNC has ordered them to say because the DNC believes that such will help defeat Trump on November 3rd. And, who knows?, maybe it will: but it still won’t make what the MSM says true. For all we know, Trump is actually poised for a landslide victory: we won’t know until the votes are counted. The MSM will not report a reality which is working well for Trump…if they have to simply make up things out of whole cloth to make things look bad for Trump, that is what they will do.

I’ll have Secrets out September 1st. And I’ve actually written all the way to the end of Battles. The third book does still need a lot of work: but I wanted to see how it ended and I think I’ve written a splendid ending! I’m going to try to have Battles out December 1st but that might slip to right after the New Year.

You may have heard of the story of the accused rapist who was let out because of Corona fears and then proceeded to murder his victim. I don’t know precisely why, but this story has placed a fury of anger in my heart. I’m sure this is not the only such story out there: and it is infuriating because the criminal was released not for any valid reason, but simply because the Democrat Party created an op which went: “if the virus is the worst thing ever, it will hurt Trump, so we’ll have the MSM report the virus as the worst thing ever”. What followed after that – criminals being sprung because we can’t leave them in prison with the worst virus ever – was a predictable as thunder after lightning. But the bottom line is that a woman is dead – murdered by the man who brutally raped her – because of the Democrat Op…and all those who are hand-wringers and cowards over this virus also have blood on their hands. For the millionth time: actions have consequences. This is the real world. What you do will cause other things to happen.

Trump signed his Executive Orders and, sure, we Conservatives are not pleased that he was forced to this action. In our perfect, entirely Constitutional world, this should not have happened. But, we left off that Constitutional world quite a while ago. It wasn’t even Obama with his pen and phone that got the ball rolling here. Honestly, it was Teddy Roosevelt with his “if the law doesn’t prohibit it, the President can do it” assertion which started the tearing down of the Constitutional order.

On the other hand, this puts Democrats in the pickle of either going along with it, or suing in court to allow people to be evicted and get lower unemployment benefits. And that, to me, is key. Since we really don’t live under the Constitution any longer, might as well do what we can to ensure our continued power. Because if the Democrats do win in November and take back the Senate, you can rely on it they’ll just pack the Supreme Court as needed and simply annul anything which prevents them from winning. Our primary action right now is defensive: keeping them away. But, also, we will have a small chance of restoring the Republic…but to do that, we’ll need power. I figure it’s 50/50 we’ll eventually install a Lenin or Franco (depending on which side wins) to take over because we, as a people, seem to be growing weary and afraid of governing ourselves. If I gotta have a dictator, then of course I want my dictator. But I’d rather have a Republic…and keeping the Democrats out for another eight or so years just might give us the ability to do so.

Bubonic plague spreads in China. This is pretty bad; but not so bad for us as bubonic plague requires lots of filth to spread…fortunately, garbage isn’t piling up in New York City as the government there collapses due to the Communist mayor’s deliberate and malicious actions. Oh, wait.

It gets really bad if it turns into pneumonic plague; then its human-to-human transmission and tens of millions will die.

Speaking of New York, the Upper West Side has become a garbage dump as the Commie mayor moved homeless people into vacated hotels. It is getting very 1970’s these days in New York City. I’d like to feel sympathy for the people of New York, but I can’t. They voted for the Commie mayor. Twice. They thought it would be so cool and hip to vote for a hard-core Commie! What they apparently didn’t realize is that Commies are serious people…and no matter how much you donate to their campaigns or how much money you slide over to them in various grifts, in the end, Lenin despoils you of all your property and sends you to Gulag.

Oddly, this was reported in the Daily Mail and not a major American MSM outfit: Trump supporters rally in….wait for it….Beverly Hills. I’ve seen some video clips. No, they are not massive rallies…but, they are rallies. And it does take some guts to proclaim your support for Trump in places like Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. Now, don’t get cocky here. I have seen people theorizing about California going red. This will not happen. But I do believe this is an indication that even in the deep blue areas, people are getting fed up with ‘Rona lockdowns (which are arbitrary and senseless and seem to only really hit at things normals like to do…whether its going to church or going out for a drink) and endless riots. Also, as many have noticed: there seems to be far more non-white people at these rallies than we see in Black Lives Matter protests.

A slight modification to the US Constitution:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Nothing in this Amendment shall be construed as prohibiting the imposition of civil and criminal penalties for the publication of false information.

Just a bit of spitballin’ here – but as I said in an earlier post, we must do something to end the Reign of Lies which has warped our politics for the past 50 or maybe even 80 years. I really am all ears here – but please don’t try to tell me that we must retain the current system which allows the MSM – in service of the Democrats – to brazenly lie all the time without any possibility of punishment. I realize that it is a very dicey thing, but I can’t see the Republic surviving if lies are allowed to go unchecked.

And, in fact, I think that God – in a way – commands us to do this: we are not supposed to allow lies to fly unchecked. Something must be built into the system as a corrective to falsehood.

Our Founders built the most brilliant system of government in human history and it has stood the test of time, but the Founders, understanding that people will lie for political advantage, never imagined a time when 95%+ of the news media in our country would (a) be liars and (b) be liars in the service of only one political party.

And speaking of lies – the Democrats and their MSM lapdogs really are circling the wagons for Biden, aren’t they? What amuses me most is that there are still some so-called “Conservative” voices out there claiming they are shocked at the double standard between Kavanaugh and Biden. To me its, oh, puhleeese! Of course the MSM and Democrats were going to treat Biden entirely differently from Kavanaugh. Everyone – including Kavanaugh’s accusers – knew the accusations against Kavanaugh were lies from the get-go; the Democrats, MSMers and Never Trumpers just pretended they thought otherwise because it was their shot to take down a Trump court nominee. But now that we have accusers of Biden – far more credible accusers – the problem is that if we go along with the accusations that would hurt a Democrat. And you know we can’t have that (and in case you were wondering why I suddenly got in the mood to amend the Constitution, this is it). Don’t look for truth, logic or any semblance of basic decency: this is about getting power…and for the Democrats anything that gets them power is good.

Some are talking that Biden can’t survive this when added to his obvious mental decline – I say: watch them. As long as Biden can stand up with his eyes open for five minutes, the DNC and MSM will prop him up as the second coming of Pericles. They have to – to ditch Joe means getting someone else, and if that someone else isn’t Bernie then the Democrats will be faced with open revolt. The only hope the Democrats have here is that after Biden picks his VP, he keels over. Absent that, they are going with him to the end.

The Experts are still saying that Trump is doomed – though the smarter Experts (those who can tie their own shoes) add the caveat “if the election were held today”. Of course, the election won’t be held today – but if it were, it would still be a decision between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Anything is possible in politics but I can’t see the American people, faced with crisis and economic crash, turning to a 78 year old, addle-brained political hack. Maybe they will – but until it happens, I won’t say it will happen. And, as it turns out, if you look at some of the voter registration numbers, social media activity and fundraising, it seems to me that Trump is well-positioned for a win in November.

I also wonder what real affect the Democrat governors will have on November? It is obvious that they aren’t acting for health and safety but merely to keep people miserable in the hope that this will help Biden. Its an open question as to whether or not that theory is correct…but I wonder if the actions like Oregon’s governor saying she’ll keep the shutdown until June is storing up a level of outrage against Democrats? No way to know – but I do know that some people are rather irked by it all. At the end of the day, we’re not going to have a cure for this thing, ever (even a vaccine won’t be 100% against it). Most of us will catch it at some point. Isn’t it time for we adult citizens of the Republic to just start assessing the risks for ourselves? I think so. And I wonder how people will long-term react to a Democrat governor saying you can’t go to the park?

As we all suspected, Flynn was framed. Completely set up as part of a process which was supposed to get people to lie under oath about President Trump. The plan ultimately failed because the plotters made one, fatal error: they assumed we on our side are garbage like they are. A Deep Stater/Establishment person is willing to lie – we’re not. We know that if you lie – especially under oath – you are taking your immortal soul in you hands and letting it slip through your fingers. Only coercion can get us to lie like that…because at that point we’re not morally responsible for the lie. Flynn agreed under duress to say he had done something wrong to save his family – only that could get him to go along. And then only for a little while. Flynn and Stone and everyone else simply refused to give the coup plotters what they wanted: someone who would swear that President Trump had colluded with Russia.

They didn’t get it – and now its all coming out, just what they did. We’ve got a problem: it was people who claim to be citizens of the United States who did this. Who else have they done it to? How many people are sitting in jail right now because they were forced to choose between the total ruination of their family or “confessing” to something they hadn’t done? And where did we breed in our nation the sort of people who can do things like that? How did it happen? This has to be fixed. For me, step one is to abolish the FBI…and review all their cases to see how many innocent people they’ve railroaded – but, until it is, remember: Never talk to the police.

Our Governor in Nevada is keeping us closed down – but, I also perceived watching his speech about it that he’s really not going to keep us closed up much longer. He’s talking a big game, but the bottom line is that people want to get out. At the end of the day, we’re adults and citizens of the Republic: we can assess the danger for ourselves. The Blue State governors naturally want to keep things closed tight – because they believe misery will help Biden in November. But as more Red States open up, the pressure will become enormous to open back up everywhere. Summer is coming – we want to go out.

I’ve actually always enjoyed reading CounterPunch articles – it is far, far left stuff, but they at least pull no punches and usefully skewer idiots…like Joe Biden, back in 2008:

Biden is a notorious flapjaw. His vanity deludes him into believing that every word that drops from his mouth is minted in the golden currency of Pericles. Vanity is the most conspicuous characteristic of US Senators en bloc, nourished by deferential acolytes and often expressed in loutish sexual advances to staffers, interns and the like. On more than one occasion CounterPunch’s editors have listened to vivid accounts by the recipient of just such advances, this staffer of another senator being accosted by Biden in the well of the senate in the week immediately following his first wife’s fatal car accident.

As they say, there’s more! You just know that Reade isn’t the only one. Biden entered the Senate in 1973. He’s old school – and the old school Senator was Ted Kennedy…a pig of a man who assumed his power allowed him to be a brute with women. And, ol’ Ted was right – he’s still honored as the Lion of the Senate, after all. What makes you think that Joe Biden, with Ted as an example, held back? His deep religious convictions which made him into a Catholic supporter of late-term abortion? Biden has to deny it – well, what he actually has to do is admit it and retire from public life, but he won’t do that – but if he denies it and any more comes out, he’s cooked. The MSM is doing massive cover-up for Biden here (he’s going on Morning Joe to take the softest of soft-ball interviews about it), but if it doesn’t all come out now, it’ll come out via Trump in October.

Kim Jong Un-Dead Open Thread

As of this moment, no real word on whether the man is dead, or not. But the fact that he hasn’t appeared in public to scotch the rumors indicates that he might have assumed room temperature. We can’t be sure of anything – not if he’s alive or dead and, if dead, what caused the demise. Official rumor is he went in for surgery and either died on the table or went into a coma…but maybe his sister and putative successor got tired of waiting for the throne? Who knows? We’ll just have to wait and see.

As for lockdowns: I’m starting to think we made a mistake. A completely understandable mistake, but one nonetheless. Next time, I think we should just go with masks, social distancing and the closure of events and venues where people crowd close together…and even then, if it can be managed with social distancing, it should be allowed; you know, a bar which has a capacity for 80 persons would be reduced to 20 persons during a pandemic, that sort of thing. A spirit of rebellion is growing – but slowly: people are worried and so still willing to put up with it. But try to extend this past, say, May 15th, and you might spark a revolution.

Joe “Fingers” Biden is in more trouble that most suspect – “most” being Democrats and Never Trump. I just don’t get how they think then can sell this guy to the public. He’s never been ragingly popular. He has no particular achievements to his name. He’s a life-long politician in a nation rather tired of such. He’s got all sorts of corruption issues and, lets face it, he likes to get handsy with the ladies, to say the least. As to whether or not he’s guilty of the alleged assault – we’ll never know for certain: it is alleged to have happened 27 years ago. On the other hand, there is more corroborating evidence – by far – of the accusation against Biden than there ever was against Kavanaugh. But here are our Democrats and Never Trumpers – backed up by the MSM stenographers – trying to downplay this. Do they not realize that Trump already has $240 million in the bank for the Fall campaign and he has absolutely no qualms about hitting his opponent with everything he’s got? Rely on it: Trump will bring all this stuff up – in ads and at the debates.

Speaking of which, there is now a bit of an effort – in the name of Coronavirus – to cancel the conventions. Just trying to keep us safe, ya dig? The reality: the Democrats are terrified of the prospect of Biden trying to make it through an hour-long, prime time speech.

The Experts are still assuring us that Biden has it in the bag: but even as they write their pieces, you can feel the fear in them: they know they are whistling past the graveyard. Everyone knows that any poll which has more Democrats than GOPers in the mix is pie-in-the-sky nonsense…and the only polls showing Biden ahead are polls with very much more Democrats than GOPers. I think they are just hoping that something will turn up – something which will doom Trump or some change in the Democrat ticket which will make their dreams come true. I discount rumors that Democrats are seeking to replace Biden – any attempt to do so would open up a can of worms Democrats would prefer to keep shut: every power broker in the insane Democrat coalition would insist upon their views being accepted before they’d sign off on a Biden replacement.

Is the office as we know it going for good? Its an interesting thought. As for me, I’d bribe my boss to be able to continue work-from-home. There is zero upside for me in going to sit in a cubicle every day when I can do my work better and faster at my desk at home. Now, some people feel they can’t be fully productive without the structure of the office – I know a guy who as fired as work-from-home because he was consistently late getting to work – but I ain’t one of them. We’ll see how it comes out – but telecommuting is the thing for me. Let me do that, and I might not retire unless and until I lose my marbles.

We were supposed to be hoarding oil, I guess.

I supported the lockdowns when they were announced – but I’m starting to think that we might have made a mistake. Perhaps we should have made it a matter of personal choice? Do as much social distancing as possible. Wear masks and gloves. Work from home if possible – but let everyone assess the risk for themselves? As we see Democrats trying to force us into a Great Depression over this, it is clear that we didn’t think this all the way through at the start. At all events, it is time to start easing up. We do have to get back to work.

President Trump is going to suspend immigration – which makes sense. Until we’re back to full employment, we simply don’t need more people here. Liberal heads will explode over this – they will step on this rake. They have to. Orange Man Bad, right? So they’ll be out there telling us to stay in our homes but we must welcome new immigrants.

The Experts are still telling us that Biden has it in the bag – which sounds familiar. Almost like I heard this four years ago, or something. But, be that as it may, Steven Hayward has a contrarian view – mostly because Trump isn’t afraid to hit back and the Democrats are a targe-rich environment.

North Korea’s dictator is said to be in bad health.

What I expected to find: Russia didn’t want to help Trump in 2016. Of all the absurdities these past few years, this is the most egregious: that Russia wanted Trump. Its stupid – they owned Hillary. And even if they didn’t own her, they knew her policies were tailor-made to let Russia do whatever it damned well pleased in the world. Russia always wants to sow confusion because that’s just the way Russia is…but to think they’d want to roll the dice on Trump when they had a sure thing in Hillary is ridiculous.

Open Thread

Taking into consideration what Democrats are saying and doing in the aftermath of Trump’s re-open plan, I can only conclude that the Democrats have war-gamed this out and figure that the more pain there is, the better for them. They seem determined to shut down as much of the economy as they can and keep it shut down for months. They know – they must know – this will be catastrophic. Not just in economic losses, but in lives lost…people who have nothing to do and are fearful are subject to all sorts of maladies; and as things stay entirely concentrated on Coronavirus, other health care needs are kept to the side, which will also cause death. Democrats want all that – they want everyone perfectly miserable so that they, the Democrats, can ride to their rescue in November.

Would it work? Meaning – if they got their way, would it ensure Trump’s defeat? I’d have to suspect as much…we’re miserable enough as it is, but if we lacked all hope then lots of people probably would turn on Trump. But Trump is not a fool – and so he’s offering hope. I think people will grasp it.

Watching Biden interviews – and they’re all done in extremely friendly circumstances – is getting painful. You start to feel sorry for the old man – he’s clearly not mentally or physically up to the task and was only propelled to the nomination because the Powers That Be felt that Warren or Bernie would have been a certain disaster. The real question: how is this guy going to compete with Trump? The Energizer Bunny of Presidents? And as for the Tara Reade accusations – the MSM is doing Biden no favors by suppressing it…it just means that for a lot of middle of the road voters, they won’t hear about it until Trump tells them. At length. In debates and on TV commercials. Trump will make Biden’s handsiness an issue – with reams of video to back up the claims that Biden is a weirdo.

Beef processors are having some trouble – and it is bad news as we rely on beef. Buuuuut…they are largely having a trouble because they are dependent upon illegal labor. Make things better and I’ll bet they could attract high quality labor…sure, I’d pay an extra buck a pound for my steak, but I’m ok with that. And it would only be until someone really got into the nitty gritty of it all and found a faster, cheaper way of getting it done. Competition isn’t a panacea – what sometimes has to happen is a rap on the knuckles to concentrate the mind.

China has a debt problem:

China’s consumer loans are shrinking at an unprecedented pace after a decade of breakneck expansion, a blow to the government’s strategy of relying on spending as a growth engine amid the worst public health crisis
in a generation.

The net balance of consumer loans – made up of short-term and credit card loans from banks and online lenders – plunged by a quarter in the first two months of this year to 7.4 trillion yuan (US$1 trillion), according to data published by the People’s Bank of China. Some microlenders are staring at 20 cents on a dollar in bad loans.

China is fundamentally weak because China’s government does not have the consent of the governed – it is really as simple as that. Governments like that of China can, for a while, make things seem to work – but only seem. China is a honeycomb of bad debts, corrupt deals, crime and poverty masked by showpiece cities. Not only did China’s economy take a massive hit from the virus, it is going to keep on taking hits as foreign nations move their supply chains out of China. People are at last awake to how dangerous it is to have their supplies come out of China because of the sort of government China has. We’ll see how China weathers the storm…but it will be a very difficult time for them.

Related: Bloomberg killed a story about the corruption of China’s ruling class. One of the most astonishing things about Coronavirus is how it revealed the extent of China’s corruption of American institutions. They’re all bought, to one degree or another.

The story, of course, was about the sexual assault allegations launched against Biden. The bottom line is the accusation is far more credible than that made against Kavanaugh – but the MSM is determined to cover up for Ol’ Joe…because he’s a Democrat, and there’s an end on it.

Rumor mill has it that AG Barr is still rolling steadily along on the investigations with Brennan said to be a large target. We’ll see.

Either the doomsayer models were wrong – or President Trump has had a great victory over the virus. The MSM will say that NY Governor Cuomo saved the day…as part of the DNC backup plan to dump Biden (which can only happen, I think, after Bernie quits…which is why he may not quit).

We’re all wondering how in heck an agent of the Chinese government – disguised as a reporter – gets admitted to the White House press briefing. Mostly because it is redundant given how slavishly the American MSM parrots Chinese propaganda. Make no mistake about it, with a wave of Xi’s hand a gigantic amount of American media company wealth could disappear. How loyal are the corporate bosses to America vs Their Money? I think you know the answer.

With Corbyn out, it is now thought that Labour will pull back from the evils Corbyn introduced – especially the ever more explicit anti-Semitism. Mark my words: they’ll try to downplay it and the British MSM will cover it up, but the anti-Semitism is a requirement to be a full-on Labourite these days. The calculation was made: there’s a huge future, electorally and financially (especially financially) in playing up to Islamists…and the price demanded is anti-Semitism. Anyone thinking that things will change with Labour – except for the worse – is whistling past the graveyard.

Don Surber points out the MSM’s kamikaze run against hydroxychloroquine. Never has TDS been more stark – simply because Trump suggested it, the MSM went all-in against it. It does look like it works – at least to some extent, and especially for people with severe cases. What I learned the last couple days if that you go on a ventilator, your outlook is pretty bleak…trust me on this, if I catch the bloody thing and I get bad and go on a ventilator, I want them to throw everything they’ve got at it. And I think that is how most people view the matter. I was pondering how Trump might have hit upon this drug – and then it hit me: we’ve got lots of people who study plagues as part of our national defense strategy. I suspect Trump just asked them, in effect, “what do we have on the shelf that might work on this?”. When they came back with the answer, “hydroxychloroquine”, he said “go for it”.

We were told our hospitals would be overwhelmed and we’d be stacking bodies like cordwood. Well, it hasn’t quite been like that – as is seen by the lack of video on the MSM showing overwhelmed hospitals and stacked up bodies. But, never one to despair, CBS looked around and found a video of a person who says she was a nurse who had to quit because there was no proper equipment at the hospital. The CBS tweet got 23 thousand retweets and 8 million views. You know how this ends, right? Of course you do: its all bullsh**. Turns out she barely works as a nurse and seems to spend a great deal of time doing some sort of modelling on Instagram. She was provided the proper equipment but, on her first day on the job, insisted she be allowed to break protocol…and when told she couldn’t, she walked out…right to her video camera to make something which was almost certain to go viral and provide massive fame to someone who clearly wants to be famous. CBS News did not check out the background of the lady…but did add dramatic music to her tearful video. Yes, the MSM is the Enemy of the People.
