The political debate is heating up. After all, the “most important” election of our lifetimes is just around the corner. If you don’t vote, you don’t have a right to complain, and all that. There is a clear choice, isn’t there? The troops died so that you could have this precious right.
Donald Trump should theoretically be very easy to beat. All it would take would be a mature, intelligent candidate, to focus attention on all his broken promises, flip-flops, and nonstop meaningless tweeting. Someone articulate to contrast with Trump’s surrealistic ungrammatical style.
But the Democrats didn’t select someone like that. Instead, they opted for an even older guy, who commits even more verbal gaffes than Trump does. Joe Biden appears to unfortunately be in the early stages of dementia, which makes him seem even more foolish than the sum of his authoritarian rhetoric.
Trump recently publicly condemned the military industrial complex in a manner unseen inside the White House since the Kennedy administration, when JFK was doing it in private. He blasted the brass at the Pentagon who “want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy.” These are wonderful sentiments, but Trump has presided over the largest military budgets in history, and surrounded himself with nothing but warhawk neocons.
Following the president’s shocking criticism of the military, none other than Rush Limbaugh, who has passionately supported every war this country has provoked in recent years, blasted the military industrial complex, too. He even mentioned all the “senseless wars” they’ve waged. All of which he cheered on, of course. But still, it was remarkable to hear. Maybe next we’ll see Lindsey Graham singing “Give Peace a Chance” on the floor of the U.S. Senate. The world turned upside down.
Now, while loving Trump’s comments, I didn’t for a second believe that he would follow them up with any corresponding actions. Like bringing the troops home from Iraq, Afghanistan, and all the other countries they remain ensconced in, some dating back to the end of World War II. True to form, a few days later, tanks in Lithuania were moved closer to the Belarus border, in an effort to pique the interest of Russia. Remember, the laughable mantra on the Left is that Trump is “Putin’s bitch.”
Trump’s comments came on the heels of an article in the Atlantic, written by editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg, one of the estimated 10 billion mainstream “journalists” who have denigrated “conspiracy theorists.” Goldberg referred to anonymous sources claiming Trump had defamed U.S. soldiers as “losers” and “suckers.” Trump had supposedly wondered aloud, during a World War I ceremony, about “what was in it” for the uniformed casualties. Sounds like a pretty good question. Not even the most rabid court historian can come up with a convincing reason for World War I.
In his own awkward, offensive way, Trump was questioning the war profiteers. “Support the troops” is a phrase used by the elite to shift the attention from why we are fighting to the brave and bold youngsters tasked to fight. Every soldier is more accurately defined as a victim. Their heroism is always in the service of powerful forces who pull their strings. War is a Racket, as the great Gen. Smedley Butler said.
Trump’s purported incendiary comments awoke Joe Biden from his slumber. He felt compelled to defend his former Republican Senate ally, the late warhawk Hall of Famer John McCain, whom Trump had notably criticized a few years back. The Biden campaign began a “Protect our Troops” advertising blitz. The fired up former vice president called Trump’s un-sourced comments “disgusting,” and “deplorable,” invoking Hillary Clinton’s former sobriquet of choice. Biden, as a good “liberal” of long standing, has never met a war he didn’t like.
Biden remains largely hidden from public view, and has been caught reading teleprompters to answer embarrassingly softball questions from a media overtly rooting for him. He should be even easier to beat than Trump. But his opponent relies on childish name-calling and incessant bragging about himself as his primary debate strategies, so nothing is certain. They are pretty evenly matched, sad to say.
Trump’s campaign rhetoric will not include anything about immigration, which was his hot button issue in 2016. This is because, despite all the tweets, his administration never ended DACA (as promised), or birth-right citizenship (as promised), and has, in fact, deported fewer illegals than Barack Obama himself. And Mexico is certainly not paying for his still nonexistent wall. So it’s probably best not to mention the subject.
Biden will certainly draw from his own name-calling arsenal. Trump will be called “racist” repeatedly. No one will require any specificity there; the state-controlled media just regurgitates something enough times so that it becomes fact in the eyes of the dumbed-down public. How do you prove that someone is a “racist” anyhow? And then there is one of Al Gore’s inconvenient truths; the numerous anti-Black comments from Joe Biden on the public record, which certainly seem to qualify as “racist.”
Just as Biden won’t mention Trump’s failure to even attempt to live up to his 2016 populist rhetoric, Trump will not mention Biden’s countless videotaped inappropriate groping of females, from little girls to adult women. A compilation of those videos would make a great campaign ad. But that would open a Deep State can of worms, especially the ones revealing a leering Biden sniffing and touching visibly uncomfortable children.
Because Trump’s overblown personality is so unique, for once there is a choice between presidential candidates. But it’s largely centered around personality. Do you want a blustery braggart, with a ridiculous hairdo/toupee and orange tan, that will tweet out anti-establishment tidbits but ultimately do nothing (or the opposite), or a semi-senile swamp creature with decades of shameful tenure in swamp infested Washington, D.C.?
It should be obvious by now that no one is riding in on a white horse to save us. And the American people are too frightened, and too apathetic, to take to the streets. Like millions did in Germany recently, when our state-controlled media completely censored what should have been a huge story; RFK, Jr. being cheered by hundreds of thousands fed up with the lockdown, from the same Berlin where his uncle gave one of his most famous speeches as president. Or the ten thousand plus who protested the shutdown in England. And France had their yellow jackets. In America, we have well organized professional “protesters” who are financed by some of the wealthiest and most powerful interests imaginable.
As we prepare to cast votes that almost certainly will not be honestly counted, the mandatory masks and social distancing requirements remain in place. Schools remain closed. Pro sports are being played before empty stands, sometimes with cardboard figures placed there, along with piped in crowd noise. There are serious suggestions that couples should wear masks while having sex. The changes appear to be permanent. And the majority of people seem to support that.
If I vote, it will be for Trump. Not because I support him, or like him. Simply because it will be more entertaining. Watching coverage by CNN, MSNBC, and the like would be must-see TV if Trump wins. Not that I think they’ll count the votes. The electoral process is utterly corrupt, and the result predetermined and rigged, no matter what the outcome. Presidents are selected, not elected. It would be more fun to watch the reactions of those with Trump Derangement Syndrome than the reactions of Trump’s cult if he loses. The “woke” Left is absolutely delusional. Again, must-see TV.
2020 will leave behind an expensive legacy. Economically and socially, the plandemic and the absurd lockdown will devastate this country for decades. The nonstop riots that are permitted to go on unimpeded by disinterested authorities are adding huge, untold amounts to that economic impact. Insurance companies aren’t going to pay for all that damage. Once again, it will be the average American who has to “sacrifice.”
There are no Huey Longs. No John F. Kennedys. RFK, Jr. is pretty good, but his hereditary vocal issue unfortunately limits his political chances. Maybe if things get bad enough, at least some of the sleeping sheeple will finally wake up. Until that happens, all we can do is rock the meaningless vote.
I’ve been a political junkie since at least the age of eleven, when I rooted with all my heart for Bobby Kennedy to win the Democratic Party presidential nomination. When RFK was assassinated, it absolutely crushed my young spirit. I think I realized even then that the good guys simply aren’t allowed to win.
Still, I remained keenly interested in the political world. During Watergate, as a high school student, I’m sure I exasperated most of my classmates with my nonstop anti- Nixon, burgeoning radical leftism. I also converted a few of them. In this regard, I guess I’m still doing the same thing; offending or persuading others.
Donald Trump has made politics infinitely more interesting. But he has also made it divisive to the point of physical confrontation, merely for wearing his MAGA hat, or placing a pro-Trump sign on one’s property. The hatred a substantial portion of Americans feel for him is unprecedented. It is indeed a form of derangement.
On the other hand, those who remain absolutely loyal to him can only do so by ignoring his constant flip-flops and capitulations. “He’s playing 8,000D chess!” “Keep your enemies closer!” Or they’ll claim the president has no authority. Which begs the question then of why any hopes are pinned on him, or any other president.
At this point, it is what it is; Trump is a grand tweeter, taking on the odious establishment with often incisive and biting comments. In terms of policies, this hasn’t meant much. It’s been neocon Republican business as usual during his term in office. Illegals aren’t being deported. Visa workers are still being hired. The crumbling infrastructure remains untouched. The troops remain in countries where they don’t belong. Not a single Deep State villain has been prosecuted.
The indictment of former Trump insider Steve Bannon last week illustrated this point all too clearly. Bannon was prosecuted, like Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, and Roger Stone, by Trump’s justice department, not Obama’s. The same justice department that declined to prosecute the Queen of Corruption, Hillary Clinton. A justice department led by William Barr, a swamp creature whose allegiance to the corrupt establishment was best reflected in his appearance as a character witness for FBI sharpshooter Lon Horiuchi, who blew Vicki Weaver’s head off while she was holding her baby, during the government assault at Ruby Ridge.
The swamp isn’t being drained. There aren’t 150,000 sealed indictments, or whatever the number is claimed to be now. The notion that someone as horrific as Barr could be leading the “White Hats” is beyond laughable. Barr, in case you didn’t know, has long been best friends with Robert Mueller, the man perceived publicly as Donald Trump’s arch nemesis. Barr is not an anomaly in Trump’s administration; he has filled it with Never Trumpers like Nikki Haley, Rod Rosenstein, and John Bolton.
The election of Trump was shocking, and at the time electrifying. But the novelty quickly wore off. It became obvious very early on, that none of the promised executive orders, to ban birth-right citizenship, H-1B Visa workers, and the like, were forthcoming. Mexico wasn’t about to build the wall. In fact, Bannon’s indictment on charges of fraud surrounding donations for the wall’s funding was the first news we’d heard about that wall for quite some time. Somewhere, Mexico is laughing.
I get attacked from both sides all the time. Whenever I post something on social media, invariably someone with Trump Derangement Syndrome, or Trump Enablement Syndrome, jumps in to question my motives, call me names, etc. My own niece deleted me as a friend recently on Facebook. I’m starting to understand how it must have felt in the 1860s, when brother really was fighting brother. Trump’s personality has created a fault line the size of the Grand Canyon. The few of us who view Trump dispassionately have a hard time fitting in to any modern political discussion, like lonely wallflowers at the big dance.
If I could only get more of my fiction published, I’d be done with political commentary. How many times, and in how many different ways, can you say that we’re ruled by absolute tyranny? How often can you drum home the fact that anyone with a large public platform is part of the corruption?
I get tired of sounding so pessimistic. But as the great cynic Ambrose Bierce said, pessimism is enforced upon the rational observer by cold reality. A part of me continues to believe in the fairy tale resolutions in all those great Frank Capra movies. So I am predisposed to believe in something like QAnon. I hope in vain for some “White Hats” to come riding into our rescue. I want to believe people are inherently good, despite myriad examples of reckless mob mentality, and the shameful fact that, even with widespread electoral fraud, plenty of people do actually vote for the Nancy Pelosis and Lindsay Grahams of the world.
I often question myself; why am I a populist? Populism derives from an affinity for the common people. The common people I’ve met are mostly just that; common. Not especially perceptive. Prone to bigotry and susceptible to even the most ridiculous aspects of mainstream indoctrination. Yes, they’re getting screwed royally by this rigged system. But most of them don’t seem to care. And most continue to focus their attention and anger at their neighbors, who are mired in the same circumstances. Everything is perfectly fine, as long as they don’t have anything, either. The analogy of the lobsters pulling down the ones trying to escape the tank is very apt here.
Seeing the ugly, screaming faces at some of these protests, I have to ask; do they deserve better? If some of these delusional people were in charge, it’s hard to imagine the kind of draconian laws they would devise. The other side is more reasonable, but their go-to move seems to be chanting “USA! USA! USA!” In other words, cheering on the system that is openly discriminating against and censoring those who share their views. Stockholm Syndrome isn’t a strong enough term to describe that.
This election, which we are assured once again will be the “most important” one ever, boils down to a referendum on Donald Trump’s personality. The issues that really impact the lives of the 80% being railroaded by the rigged system will be ignored again, as they have been in every previous presidential election. Except for 2016, when Trump’s populist rhetoric brought things like “globalism” and immigration to the forefront of the discourse.
There will be no debate about the great 9/11 lie, and the unconstitutional niceties, like the Patriot Act and Homeland Security department, that followed. I don’t think even Trump will have the audacity to talk about illegal immigrants and Visa workers, given his lack of effort in those areas. No one will talk about peace, or the sprawling Military Industrial/Intelligence Complex, unless Trump makes another insincere threat to bring the troops home from somewhere. The disparity of wealth will only be touched upon in a broad, meaningless way by the Democrats who still despise the greatest champion the common people ever had, Huey Long.
With the Democrats demanding widespread mail-in voting, which will ensure even more electoral fraud than usual, we can expect an even more contentious result. Neither side will trust the results, and with good reason. Voting has been fixed in this country since “Honest” Abe Lincoln prevented troops suspected of being Democrats from being furloughed to vote during the war, since Samuel Tilden was robbed of the presidency in 1876, since “Landslide” Lyndon Johnson proved the importance of the dead vote during his 1948 Senate “victory,” which was rubber stamped by ex-KKK member Hugo Black, who went on to become a “liberal” Supreme Court justice, to cite a few glaring examples. It isn’t “Russia” corrupting our electoral process.
I’ve voted for enough Third Party candidates. Ralph Nader. Pat Buchanan. Ross Perot. Various Libertarians. Only Perot had even a sliver of a chance to win. Americans love their “two party” system. And with the emergence of Trump, virtually everyone is split into those disastrous two camps that Alex Jones used to accurately call the “phony Left-Right paradigm.” Nobody seems to want more choices. A truly independent, Reform Party-style of alternative has never seemed less possible. Trump’s election crushed the chances of any alternative parties.
We have a choice between the tweeter-in-chief, and a Deep State veteran of decades, who appears for all the world to be suffering from some form of dementia. Perhaps the “highlight” of the Democratic Party’s convention- held in virtual, surreal lockdown style- featured a woman who was an ex-prostitute. But not just any prostitute- one who participated in a gang murder of a client. And only served twenty some years, which is par for the course in our maddeningly bad injustice system. No one, naturally, talked about peace or civil liberties.
I’ll keep writing and talking about politics. It’s a part of my character. But I don’t have much passion left for it. Emotion drives the debate now. Petty partisanship and hypocrisy reign. There is no place for reason or idealism in the politics of personality.
I became politically aware as a teenager in the mid-1970s. It was a different country, and a different world. America 1.0, as I like to call it. I gravitated naturally to the far Left side of the political spectrum. I was against all war. I thought the poor were getting a raw deal. I didn’t think blue-collar workers were being paid enough. I felt sympathy for the unjustly convicted and opposed the death penalty. I thought marijuana should be legalized. I believed our leaders should be focusing on the many domestic problems, instead of senseless foreign intervention.
Most importantly, I became a civil libertarian. Patrick Henry’s words, “I may not agree with what you say, but I’ll defend to my dying day your right to say it” resonated with me almost as much as Huey Long’s great “Share the Wealth” speeches. I was also influenced by Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Philosophy, which talked about “victimless crimes” and ignited my libertarian streak.
I thought the Democrats, or most of them, were the good guys. I cast my first vote for Jimmy Carter, even though I liked almost all the other party presidential candidates better. I really liked Frank Church, especially when he headed the first congressional investigation to expose the abuses of the Central Intelligence Agency.
It didn’t take long for me to become more politically mature. I grew to understand that most of the social programs created additional costly bureaucracies, and didn’t seem to provide much help to those who needed it. Once the Vietnam War finally ended, I began to notice that most Democrats were just as pro-war as most Republicans.
The election of Bill Clinton in 1992 signaled the end of the old “liberalism,” which had drawn me to politics in the first place. Clinton was the first politician to make a habit of virtue signaling rhetoric, in which he could “feel your pain,” but his “reforms” resulted in poor people getting less financial aid for shorter periods, and convicted more largely Black people of “victimless crimes” than ever before. His myriad of personal and political scandals made Richard Nixon, whom I had considered the ultimate villain in my youth, look like Thomas Jefferson.
Clinton was the first to co-opt the term “liberal” without adhering to any of the classic tenets of liberalism. He didn’t overtly support the unions that were even then largely impotent. He didn’t demand higher wages for average workers, or criticize the incredible growth of CEO compensation, often accompanied by large layoffs. He lobbied hard for the passage of NAFTA, one of the deadliest pieces of legislation in our history, and never batted an eye at the outsourcing and offshore factories that followed.
Bill Clinton might have bombed Kosovo, and helped consolidate the media into a handful of huge corporations, but he could speak identity politics fluently. And that’s all that mattered to his base, which were being converted from empathetic, traditional liberals fighting for the little guy into authoritarians concerned over the views of those they opposed.
By the time Barack Obama arrived on the scene, he was treated like a male, biracial Mother Theresa by a fawning media and an even larger constituency indoctrinated for years by the virtue signaling professors that were already dominant in every major university. Obama was celebrated for what he was and how he looked, not for his political beliefs or principles. He was perhaps even better at feeling others’ pain that Bill Clinton was. But he too proved to be adept and bombing and even killing others, which he actually bragged about. And his supporters loved it.
The election of Donald Trump triggered something deep inside all of those now mature Social Justice Warriors, who’d been born under Clinton and climbed to positions of power under Obama. We see them now as the mayors and police chiefs of all the cities being besieged by looting, who have no desire to stop it.
The classical liberals, inspired by the likes of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Patrick Henry, Charles Dickens, William Jennings Bryan, Huey Long, and John F. Kennedy, are now all but gone from public life. Some of my friends, like peace activist Cindy Sheehan and former Rep. Cynthia McKinney, try their best, but no one on the left is interested in marching for peace now. Or protecting civil liberties. Sheehan and McKinney aren’t going to be welcome at the Democratic convention.
Instead, “liberals” today largely consist of often deluded Social Justice Warriors. They think and act with emotion, not reason. Their primary goal doesn’t seem to be fighting for the rights of those who’ve been denied them, but to take away the rights of those they disagree with. They don’t remotely believe in the Bill of Rights, especially the First Amendment. How many people have been fired recently, for posting a comment on social media, in their free time, which offended these Social Justice Warriors?
These poor souls are forced into public acts of contrition, but still lose their jobs, anyway. Why they still apologize for exercising their constitutional right to free speech is beyond me. The virtue signalers whose loud complaints got them fired, feel no remorse. No sense of guilt over families thrown into financial turmoil, especially in this unprecedented fragile economy. The new Left doesn’t care about the unemployed, especially if they disagree with them politically. It makes them feel good to see someone that offended them fired. That’s the essence of identity politics.
It doesn’t take much for Social Justice Warrior to demand someone’s termination. A pro soccer player was recently cut by his team for comments his wife made on Twitter. The stepmother of one of the officers involved in the shooting of the man found asleep in a Burger King drive-through was fired. For being his stepmother. Others have lost their jobs for uttering undeniable truths like “all lives matter.” When that is considered not only controversial, but a fireable offense, then we have reached the heights of lunacy.
I am very active on social media. For celebrating Roger Stone’s commutation, I was blasted by some who had been big fans of my work. One person told me Stone should be shot for treason. Another said he should be hanged. Someone else said no one deserved prison more than him, and that he should be given a life sentence. For contrived process crimes, and a politicized prosecution in a kangaroo courtroom? So Stone deserves prison more than serial killers and child rapists?
I had much the same reaction for posting what I considered very good news, about embattled Kentucky teenager Nicholas Sandmann winning an undisclosed out of court settlement from the Washington Post. A good cyber friend, whom I respect greatly, called him a name and said he should “have his teeth kicked in.” Others called the teenager a “racist.” Clearly, that MAGA hat triggered them. They don’t need much triggering, but this red hat sets Social Justice Warriors off like nothing else.
The irrational hostility of these authoritarians who have commandeered the political Left is centered on Donald Trump. The inner party members in George Orwell’s 1984, engaged in the “two minute hate” while viewing the image and hearing the words of the opposition leader known as Goldstein. Today’s Social Justice Warriors engage in a 24 hour hate against the image and words of Donald Trump.
There is a consistent anti-White theme to everything the Social Justice Warriors say, and advocate. While the vast majority of these virtue signalers are White themselves, that doesn’t stop them from blasting “White privilege” nonstop. The irony of a group like Black Lives Matter being only 16% Black has been lost on our largely dumbed down populace. These protesters and looters are largely angry Whites. Who or what is financing and supporting them ought to be of concern to investigative journalists, if we had any.
With the violent tearing down of statues, the Social Justice Warriors have crossed another line. They have met no resistance from any of the “White supremacists” running this “racist” country yet. Their irrationality is on full display here. They have claimed Mahatma Gandhi, a Brown man who fought White colonialism and inspired the Black civil rights movement, was a “White Supremacist.” They want to tear down his statue, too. How can you possibly have a rational discourse with such people?
“Liberal” used to be a positive term. It indicated one who was interested in reform, and advocating for the poor and powerless. It has come to mean an authoritarian control freak, who not only has never heard of “victimless crimes,” but wants to create new offenses, such as “hate crimes,” to punish those whose beliefs make them angry. The Social Justice Warriors probably have never heard of Orwell’s “thought crime,” and thus have no awareness of how close they come to supporting such a dangerous concept.
I know I’m in a very small minority. Anti-war. Anti death penalty. A free speech purist. Not ashamed of being White. Concerned with class, not race. Judging people, like Martin Luther King, by the content of their character.
I’ve grown weary of the very word “racist.” And if you consume any media at all these days, it’s impossible not to confront it. Multiple times every day. It has, in fact, probably become the most used word in the mainstream media and the political, sports, and entertainment worlds. Well, next to “the,” I guess.
The word has lost all meaning and relevancy. If everything is “racist,” then ultimately nothing is. Much like if everyone was beautiful, no one would be. The word would stand for nothing, because there wouldn’t be anything to contrast it with. Right now, “racist” has come to stand for nothing, along with its companion “racism.”
Our society is corrupt to the core, and run by the worst sorts of people the most demented mind could imagine. They are so bad that it is difficult to argue with the anarchists now. One sees the people running things at city and state levels, and one realizes the problem isn’t just with our familiar, horrific federal “representatives.”
Many of these lower-level officials are Black. Most of them appear to hate White people. Which should concern all those interested in a fair and just administration of power. But it doesn’t seem to concern anyone, least of all most White people. The Lori Lightfoots of the world wear their anti-White antipathy on their sleeve, and don’t make any pretenses about it. They are large and in charge, and will let their own personal prejudices dictate their actions.
Seventy five years ago, Black defendants had little to no chance of justice in a southern courtroom. The judges, prosecutors, and particularly the juries were openly hostile to them, especially if they were accused of raping a White woman, for instance. Today, a White defendant in any big city has just as little chance at justice, because the judges, prosecutors, and juries are largely Black. This is especially true if they are connected to the individual vilified as the ultimate “racist,” Donald Trump, as was the case with Roger Stone. In such cases, the lead juror can even express their animosity for you openly on social media.
We have reached the heights of lunacy when the claim is made that Black people are being purposely held down, and wronged, by “systemic racism.” Which part of the system oversees this “racism” is difficult to ascertain. All major corporations, all mainstream media, and the entire entertainment world, have expressed their heartfelt support for Black Lives Matter. White employees who criticized BLM even half-heartedly on social media have been summarily fired from their jobs. For expressing their right to free expression on their own time.
A professional soccer player was fired for something his wife tweeted. The stepmother of one of the police officers involved in the recent shooting of Rayshard Brooks was terminated by her employer. For being his stepmother. Many other employees have quickly been dismissed for politically incorrect comments online.
This, of course, ought to bother everyone concerned in the slightest with civil liberties and human liberty. But the question that begs to be asked is; why would companies largely run by White people fire Whites for criticizing Black Lives Matter? And why publicly support BLM, and in many cases donate millions of dollars to their organization? Isn’t that a very peculiar way for those running businesses under “systemic racism” to behave? Is there a case, anywhere, of a Black employee being fired for social media comments, that “offended” White people?
We don’t see this “racism” in the White public at large, either. Look at the videos of Whites dropping to their knees to apologize to random Blacks. In one case, police (who have also been kneeling), washed the feet of some Black pastors. A group of deluded White males whipped themselves severely in front of an appreciative (or bemused) Black audience. Whites have placed sale tags around their necks and marched in further acts of contrition.
Meanwhile, the “White Supremacists” we are told run this society are largely invisible. Does a single member of the KKK hold even a modest position of power? Just wearing a Donald Trump MAGA hat can result in a severe beating, or a job termination, and neither the “supremacists” nor the “racist” police defend those impacted. Again, this is a very odd byproduct of “systemic racism.”
Whenever I post anything about a particular historical event or figure, some of those who follow me on social media invariably inject “racism” where it isn’t relevant whatsoever. It has become impossible, for instance, to discuss the War for Independence, without the Founding Fathers being dismissed as “racists.” Or the Civil War, without slavery overwhelming all other issues combined. This is not just on my social media, but in every discussion, on every media platform.
Black people comprise about 13% of the American population. They aren’t even our largest minority group any longer; that distinction belongs to Hispanics. And yet, our entire culture now revolves around the aspirations, complaints, and alleged mistreatment of this one specific group. “Blacks and Whites” are coupled together, as if the two were remotely equal in terms of population numbers, and as if Hispanics, Asians, and other ethnic groups were irrelevant and/or didn’t exist here.
Watching sports, when they were still being played in the days before the Great Plandemic, has become unbearable, if one suffers from Racist Fatigue Syndrome, as I now do. Even the biggest White superstars, like Tom Brady, are openly mocked and disliked, when they aren’t ignored. All coverage by sports “journalists” is focused exclusively on Black athletes, and how they are still somehow being discriminated against. The average salary for the largely Black NBA is $7.7 million. Whoever is being discriminated against, it clearly isn’t Black athletes.
In the entertainment world, all any Black celebrity has to do is complain about the lack of Blacks being nominated for an Academy Award. No one questions the legitimacy of such complaints. The “racists” who run everything simply acquiesce instantly, and bestow what amounts to Affirmative Action Oscars. The world of popular music is utterly dominated by Black performers. The Grammy Awards are nearly indistinguishable from the BET awards. A few years back, future Trump supporter Kanye West ruined the moment for award winner Taylor Swift, as he grabbed the microphone from her and demanded to know why Beyonce, another Black artist, hadn’t won. This didn’t exactly trigger the super wealthy Swift’s inner “Supremacy,” as she has tweeted out her heartfelt support for BLM.
While the professional sports world is wildly over represented by Blacks, compared to their demographic numbers, as is the music industry to only a slightly lesser degree, Hollywood disproportionately selects Black actors for its projects as well. How many Hispanics, who are our largest minority group, have major roles in any film? In any television show? In any commercial? Or on any local newscast? How many Blacks do you see in those roles? Do they comprise more than 13% of those appearing onscreen?
Those pushing the “systemic racism” mantra are largely White. A shockingly low 17% of the members of Black Lives Matter are Black. If you’re confused by angry Whites, lecturing others about “White privilege” and calling them “White Supremacists,” you may have Racist Fatigue Syndrome, too. Self-hatred seems too mild of a way to describe this phenomenon. Do these Whites realize they are White? Do they exempt themselves from these blanket indictments? Their parents? Their siblings? Their children?
I am, in fact, sick and tired of hearing so much about Black people. Or African- Americans. Perhaps I should call this malady of mine African-American Fatigue Syndrome. Black people aren’t some kind of magical creatures, as absurd movies like The Green Mile would have you believe. If we are quite rightly urged not to believe negative stereotypes about Blacks, then why should we be expected to accept that they are natural athletes, and dancers, and lovers? If all of us truly are equal, then why don’t we treat Black people the same way we treat everyone else? Why the obsequious condescension, and the shameful pandering? And why is it acceptable to promote negative stereotypes and generalize about “rednecks,” “White trash,” and White people in general?
I am not trying to sound like a neo-Nazi, whatever that is. I am certainly not a “White Supremacist,” whatever that is. I try to treat everybody with respect, and don’t think anyone is superior to anyone else. I’m about as egalitarian as they come. But I am White. So is my wife. And my children. And my siblings. My parents and grandparents were White. I hope to have grandchildren someday, and odds are they will be White. So when I hear a screaming Social Justice Warrior lambaste “Whites,” I think of them. And it infuriates me.
My grandparents were lower middle class on my Mother’s side, and dirt poor on my Father’s side. I grew up in a lower middle class household. If my parents, or their parents before them, benefited from any “privilege,” it was invisible, came with no financial benefits, and had zero impact on our standard of living.
At what point do White cucks (and there is no other accurate word to describe their sickening submission to those who irrationally hate them) finally get a backbone? Especially prominent White cuck leaders, on the “conservative” side- when will they say enough is enough? When there are demands that they relinquish their homes, their bank accounts, their personal property? After all, they benefited from “White Privilege,” didn’t they? If any Whites have “privilege,” wouldn’t it be our leaders?
Tearing down statutes of Confederates, and Founding Fathers, and Christopher Columbus, and Catholic saints, is apparently not enough to rouse Kipling’s sleeping Saxons. The authorities stand down to this kind of mindless destruction of our historical heritage. What are we paying them for? But again, who are the authorities in almost all of our big cities? It certainly isn’t White “racists” who are steering this curious brand of “systemic racism.”
If such maladies as post partum depression, and executive burnout, and post traumatic stress disorder, and gambling addiction, and sex addiction, and chronic fatigue syndrome can exist, then so can racist fatigue syndrome. Who knows how many suffer from this disorder? Most victims maintain a fearful silence.
A cure appears highly unlikely, as it would involve a powerful dose of reason, common sense, and courage. All these ingredients are rarely found today in our collapsing country.
Up until recently, the unprecedented events of 2020 have conjured up visions of George Orwell’s 1984. As the madness spreads, with no responsible leadership in sight, I am reminded more of a Lord of the Flies scenario.
Protesters- almost certainly organized and funded by someone or something nefarious- have taken over six blocks in Seattle, Washington. There was no opposition to them doing so. In fact, police there quickly abandoned their precinct. Could anyone imagine this happening even a decade ago?
A Black “warlord,” dubbing himself as “Raz,” arrived instantly on the scene, as if transported there by Hollywood central casting. They first named their new “Republic” CHAZ, or Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, but are now calling themselves CHOP, for Capitol Hill Occupied Protest. The “racist” White establishment is as respectfully recognizing this as they did years ago, when absurd Black celebrities started sporting childish nicknames like Snoop Dog, ‘Lil Romeo, Ice-T, etc.
Seattle Fire Chief Harold Scoggins exemplified what I call the Stupid White Response to this armed takeover, by stating, “We’re trying to work through different plans. There have been incidents inside the area, and we’ve been in communication with the teams and working at handoff points and, so that’s been our plan up to this point. But what we know is that’s a limited plan.” This is the kind of leadership America has suffered under for far too long. And now it’s showing.
While we still see scattered incidents of police officers acting irresponsibly and abusing their authority in their customary manner, as a whole our police forces have figuratively (and sometimes literally) taken a knee for the protesters. They might as well be waving white flags of surrender. They haven’t even attempted to stop most of the looting, burning of buildings, and destruction of property. In one case, police officers washed the feet of some black clergymen.
We are witnessing a monumental breakdown of all authority. Those tasked with keeping “order,” by whatever definition, and who are paid by taxpayers to do so, are failing miserably at their jobs. Well, failure isn’t really even the right word- refusal to even try to restore “order” is probably a better way to put it. Mayors are in lockstep solidarity with the protesters. So are many police chiefs. The few arrests that have been made have been quickly dismissed, and those detained released.
The most astounding part of this burgeoning dystopia/Idiocracy is the near unanimous uniformity of opinion, on the part of politicians, business leaders, and the state-controlled media. They all support the protesters, who are seemingly marching against them– you know, the “racist” establishment. All those “racist” run corporations have issued statement after statement, expressing their support for the protests. And they’ve fired many hapless Whites who even mildly dissented.
MTV fired a “teen mom” for some past “racist” tweets, despite the fact she was dating a multi-racial man at the time. A nurse was fired for referring to looters as “thugs” on Facebook. Grant Napea, who served as the announcer for the NBA’s Sacramento Kings for 32 years, was fired for saying “All Lives Matter.” Social Justice Warriors have informed us, over and over again, that saying all lives matter is “racist.” A Black character on The Walking Dead was fond of saying, “all life if precious.” I think that’s the same thing. I imagine he’s “racist” now, too.
A teacher at a Catholic high school was terminated for criticizing Black Lives Matter. That is expressly forbidden now, in this “racist” land ruled by “White Supremacy.” A southern Baptist woman was fired for making a video countering left-wing extremists from a Biblical perspective. The father of a two year old battling cancer was fired by his presumably “racist” employer for posting a video critical of those burning buildings.
Gone with the Wind is gone from HBO, thanks to it being labeled “racist.” An objectionable episode of the classic British comedy Fawlty Towers has been banned as well. Virtually any piece of literature with the world’s most forbidden word in it- all of them great works like Huckleberry Finn, whose authors were clearly opposing, and not supporting racism, are being banned as well. And now, a veteran editor at the Los Angeles Times has declared that the word looting itself is “racist.”
The world’s allegedly wealthiest man in the world, Amazon/Washington Post honcho Jeff Bezos, recently funneled $10 million into Black Lives Matter and similar groups. If the richest White guy in the world isn’t a “White Supremacist,” who is? Kind of a strange thing for a “racist” to do, isn’t it- contribute to Black Lives Matter?
Several universities have instituted new grading policies, which force teachers to grade Blacks on a much more lenient scale, and to exempt them from the final exams all other students have to take. One very liberal UCLA professor naturally objected to this, and was threatened and then suspended. This amounts to academic Affirmation Action on steroids, but I don’t suspect you’ll hear much criticism about it, from the powerful teachers’ unions, or any of our public officials.
The “conservatives” have been predictably and conspicuously silent here. Breitbart laughably blamed the death of George Floyd not on the monstrous actions of a psychopath who should never have been a cop, but on police officers still having a viable union, giving them the right to collectively bargain. Mitt Romney marched proudly alongside the protesters. Undefinable terms like “White Supremacy” and “White Privilege” are accepted by conservatives as well. They are considered as proven and undeniable by anyone with a public voice, despite all evidence to the contrary.
Tucker Carlson stands alone in the mainstream media, and has in fact seemed to become more hard-core in his commentary recently. For his troubles, Carlson’s show has lost several advertisers, all of them companies run by extremely wealthy Whites. In other words, those with both “privilege” and an entitled sense of “supremacy.” So why would these “racists” want to disassociate themselves from the only strong voice condemning Black Lives Matter and Antifa? Why do they keep, instead, issuing public statements that proclaim “We stand with the Black community?”
Drew Brees, one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history, tweeted out some naive patriotic comments recently, citing his grandfathers fighting in WWII, and how he didn’t like to see the flag disrespected. He was met with a litany of hate, including from his wildly overrated possession receiver Michael Thomas, whose success is due solely to his “racist” quarterback peppering him with countless targets every game. Thomas responded in gloriously ungrammatical ignorance, but that seemed to escape those who “lol” at such gaffes, and no one questioned how an alleged student at Ohio State could possess the writing skills of your average third grader.
Brees caved in instantly to the pressure, and has issued so many apologies I’ve lost track of them. This is what Whites have done for many years now; apologize for any “insensitive” remarks. But only if they are made about Black people. And that is the crux of the problem here; these public acts of contrition never work. In most cases, the hapless “racist” is still fired. They are still considered “racist.” So why do they continue to apologize for expressing their constitutional right to free speech?
That was one of Donald Trump’s most appealing qualities; he appeared to be the first high-profile White in a very long time, who didn’t automatically back down and apologize. He remains combative, primarily from his headquarters on Twitter, but as usual does nothing substantial in terms of actions. Scour all of Trump’s endless tweets. You won’t find a single mention of Black Lives Matter or its acronym BLM. Trump never even refers to “Whites.” And yet, he has been branded as the foremost “racist” in the world. He did rescue a Black rapper in Sweden, however, and used to talk continuously about the alleged record low African-American unemployment rate. And this supremely flawed man remains virtually our last hope.
Statues of Confederates, Christopher Columbus, and now Founding Fathers like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, have been torn down. Without any police attempting to stop it. And now, Mahatma Gandhi, a Brown man who fought British (White) colonial rule, and who inspired Martin Luther King’s own civil disobedience protests during the Civil Rights movement, has been declared “racist” and there are calls to tear down his statues, too.
I am a classical liberal, a populist, and a civil libertarian. In other words, I am unwelcome on today’s Left. I stand with JFK, who said, “race has no place in American life or law.” Martin Luther King, who like JFK was killed by forces within his own government, had a dream that his children would grow up to be judged “not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Many comments by the father of the Civil Rights movement would be considered “racist” by today’s standards. Like Gandhi, perhaps King was a secret “White supremacist.”
And so we stand, divided and rudderless. A country that was already largely Third World before all this started. No effective leadership, but citizens scurrying around in fear with their ridiculous masks on. Obeying tyrants that have retreated into the shadows. Ready to welcome Orwellian “contact tracers” with open arms. Solemnly chastising those who want to end the senseless, draconian shutdown of society.
There is still no end game in sight to all this. And no easy solutions. We are defenseless, with no public officials, corporate leaders, or “journalists” on the side of reason and common sense.
Thus far, 2020 has been a sci-fi dystopian nightmare. Six months ago, how many people would have believed the images of human beings wearing masks everywhere, while carefully keeping six feet apart from each other? Who could have imagined something like “social distancing?”
But within the last week, the COVID-19 production has been replaced by nationwide riots, ignited by white Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin grinding his knee into the neck of an alleged forger, George Floyd, long enough to kill him. Lloyd was Black, so the state-controlled media jumped on the story like a rabid animal.
The media and sycophantic politicians were quick to drum home the point that “institutional racism” was at fault. In conjunction with Donald Trump, of course, who does nothing much more than Tweet continuously, but is blamed for everything by these Social Justice Warriors. While videos have shown a fairly diverse group of protesters, Blacks are clearly the predominant group, and the prolific graffiti desecrating the likes of the Lincoln Memorial all share the “Black Lives Matter” and/or “Evil White Racists” theme.
Lost in the furor was the fact that the Floyd death was not even that egregious, when compared to the countless unnecessary deaths of unarmed civilians at the hands of police officers. Since 2017, 2,855 civilians in this country have been killed by cops. 1268 were White, 571 were “unknown” or “other,” 518 were Black, and 498 were Hispanic. Somehow, from those official numbers; the press, our laughable politicians, and deluded celebrities have concluded that “cops are killing Black men.”
They are killing Black men, but more accurately, they’re killing even more non-Blacks. And the important point should be that these “public servants” have killed nearly 3,000 Americans in less than three years. By contrast, police in Norway haven’t killed a single person in over a decade.
Most Americans don’t realize that the Supreme Court ruled in 1981 that police are not there to protect us. So, the old “protect and serve” thing hasn’t applied since then. Once widespread looting and destruction of property began in cities all over the nation this week, police simply let it happen. For days, they didn’t even attempt to stop the vandalism and theft. Firefighters were just as useless, as their superiors claimed it was “unsafe” for them to put out the many fires set by rioters.
So, if we can’t depend on police to stop mass looting and destruction, exactly what are we paying them for? The Supreme Court has already ruled that they aren’t there to protect us. So what are they there for? Why are we giving these often psychopathic bullies guns and unlimited authority? Under the policing for profit system, their primary purpose is to issue as many traffic citations as possible. Most of them seldom encounter a truly threatening situation. So it’s no wonder they don’t know how to quell disturbances involving thousands of angry, potentially violent people.
The riots have managed to push the world’s most dangerous virus into the background. And all those virtue signalers who lashed out at the anti-lockdown protests for their alleged “racism,” and failure to “social distance,” have been as quiet as church mice over these much larger crowds, which are jammed together in pre- COVID fashion. Now, it’s not “irresponsible,” or endangering anyone’s safety, to protest. Now, it’s a precious right. The only difference is what’s being protested, and who’s doing the protesting.
While we were all distracted with nonstop coverage of the riots, the World Health Organization issued a statement saying that only those with COVID symptoms, or who had been around those with the virus, should be wearing masks. No healthy people should. So why is everyone still wearing a mask? Why are states like mine, Virginia, requiring anyone entering an establishment to wear one? Does this make any sense? Why should any of us trust those making such stupid decisions?
If the COVID Plandemic can serve any purpose, it’s to pull the mask off of our largely anonymous leaders at the state and local levels. Americans can see clearly just how incompetent and corrupt those who rule our lives with their laws, mandates, and restrictions, actually are. We are responsible for their salaries, much as we are paying police and firefighters. Most of them are making a lot more than the taxpayers who pay them. And virtually all have much better benefits and more lucrative pensions.
The old expression “you get what you pay for” doesn’t seem to apply to public servants in America. On the contrary, we pay pretty well, but get virtually nothing in return. Except for possibly being harassed by a cop, anxious to meet his monthly quota, over an illegal u-turn or failing to come to a complete stop at an empty intersection. Politically, we have had “taxation without representation” for a very long time. Ironic that this was on of the primary reasons why the Founders fought for independence. You’re lucky to be able to get a phone call through to one of our pointless bureaucratic government agencies. Doesn’t quite seem worth it.
It should bring us to tears, or laughter, depending upon one’s perspective, to watch rioters stealing and throwing things with impunity, while dutifully wearing their masks of submission. The fact that so many more Americans are willing to hit the streets over “racism,” including many Whites, than they were to protest an unwarranted, unconstitutional closure of businesses and implementation of draconian “social distancing” rules tells us all we need to know.
To those of us who think we’re “awake,” the fact that we’re vastly outnumbered by our slumbering, “socially conscious” peers is a sobering thought. Why continue to try to wake them up? They not only don’t notice the tyranny, they are willing to fight for it. They parrot meaningless, wildly inaccurate slogans like “white privilege” because they obviously are persuaded by the ludicrous propaganda of Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, and all the other professional “journalists.” They aren’t persuaded by any evidence we provide, and instead dismiss us as “conspiracy theorists” or “wackos,” just like the professional “journalists.”
We have no one to fight for us. Those still clinging to QAnon fantasies, and imagining a group of powerful “white hats” riding in to save the day, are in denial of a harsh reality. That reality is that our rigged electoral process doesn’t give any of us a voice. All winning candidates are a part of the problem, or they wouldn’t have won.
If there were any “white hats” in positions of prominence, they would have exposed the COVID fraud a long time ago. Instead, both “liberals” and “conservatives” abide by ridiculous rules that are unenforceable, because they were never passed as any law. By this standard, a governor or a mayor could simply decree that all persons appearing in pubic henceforth must wear a giant pointed hat. That would make just as much sense, and have as much legal authority.
As Barney Fife once said, “the first rule is: obey all rules.” That kind of satirical authoritarianism used to be incredibly funny. It isn’t funny when it happens in real life. Barney used to make a big deal over jaywalking. The writers on The Andy Griffith Show used that particular crime because it was so trivial. In recent years, the same kind of out of control cops who killed George Floyd have done things like shoot a deaf jaywalker in the back, because he didn’t turn around when they shouted at him. And the brave officer who killed him called for “backup,” as they invariably do when abusing helpless elderly people, those in wheelchairs, or homeless drunks.
An honest “dialogue” about police would note that virtually all police departments have been guilty of excusing the most reprehensible conduct of their officers, including murder, by defending them as acting “appropriately.” Our police forces desperately need strong civilian oversight, and new management across the board. Policing for profit needs to be abolished. They need to be converted back into the “peace officers” they once were. We don’t need “law enforcement,” when the only laws being enforced are harmless traffic violations or victimless drug offenses.
An honest “dialogue” about race would urge that our legal system establish consistent sentences for every offense for everyone. No exceptions for race or wealth, both of which corrupt our injustice system. The disparity in sentencing, the arrogant and political bias of judges, and the shocking regularity with which jurors find defendants guilty on the most dubious evidence imaginable, should frighten anyone unfortunate enough to find themselves sitting in one of our courts.
Considering how putrid all the institutions in America currently are, we should welcome a cleansing, a hard reboot. The problem is, the ones who are seemingly bringing the system down on purpose will be running what replaces it. And the prospect of contact tracers, mandatory vaccinations, are the antithesis of the massive reforms that are needed.
It isn’t just Donald Trump emulating Nero with a fiddle. The entire political and business world is joining him. So are the media and clueless celebrities. They say the band kept playing as the Titanic sank. America is sinking, while the entire country whistles and sings.
As the world continues its draconian slide through the plandemic psyop, our country has divided itself firmly into two misguided camps. As has been the case since the election of Donald Trump, that division is centered around his impossibly cartoonish personality.
Those who suffer from the very real Trump Derangement Syndrome disorder have taken the side of the virus, clinging to it like desperate leeches. They are emotionally invested in the virus, and in the medical and scientific “experts” who promote its dangers, and advocate more authoritarian means to combat it.
Meanwhile, the Trump faithful who remain loyal to him in spite of all the evidence that he is in fact just another neocon Republican, have contracted their own disorder, Trump Enablement Syndrome. This group, while largely demanding that the country open up again, bends with every Trumpian flip-flop. They cheer when Trump quips that we can “beat” the virus without a vaccine, and turn a deaf ear when he announces the military will be administering it.
Only in the conspiracy world I inhabit can one find independent alternative views. Every politician in both “competing” parties is waiting breathlessly for a vaccine to defeat this horrific plague. They conveniently forget that the flu has not been eradicated by a vaccine. They are also shockingly ignorant of the well documented negative effects from vaccines. Instead, they are listening to the Godfather of this plandemic, noted nondoctor and nonscientist, eugenicist Bill Gates.
Gates and his equally unqualified wife Melinda have really been increasing the pro- vaccine rhetoric lately. They advocate continuing this disastrous lock down until everyone has been safely vaccinated. Along with the Beetlejuice-looking Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, whose arrogant pronouncements seem like self-satire, the transsexual Secretary of Health in Pennsylvania, Los Angeles’s “health” director, who looks like she belongs on the set of The Walking Dead, and the obese health ministers of Belgium, Alberta, and Quebec, it’s difficult to take their advice seriously. Or to keep a straight face.
It should be obvious to all, now that they are front and center in running this world- wide psyop, just how horrific our leaders are. At every level. Look at Lightfoot- a laughably unimpressive mayor of a big city, who memorably got her own hair cut while forbidding her underlings to do so. Drunk with power, she told Chicagoans that “we will shut you down,” while leading CDC official Dr. Carol Baker, who naturally is white herself, bluntly declared, “we’ll just get rid of all Whites in the United States.” The good doctor didn’t explain what white people have to do with the present crisis, or with her own job description.
Most of these odious figures, the vast majority of them public servants, with many elected by the populace, remained safely in the background prior to the introduction of the COVID-19 show. Now that they have to make decisions, and weigh in regularly with the press and the public, their mind-boggling incompetence and long learned sense of entitlement is being exposed. Not that most of the public seems to care, mind you. Lightfoot and other cretinous “representatives” will unquestionably be returned to office in the next election.
Think about the questions no one is asking. The most obvious one being; why are all these businesses being forced to close, with their owners at risk of legal punishment, while corporate giants like Walmart and Home Depot have been allowed to remain open the entire time? What is the point of installing a plexiglass shield between customers and cashiers, if the cashier is touching all of the items being purchased? Why put a plastic cover on the credit card keypad, when everyone is touching the same cover?
Recently, stories have begun appearing throughout the mainstream media, attempting to convey the impression that many of the same idiotic, pointless rules we’re being forced to obey now were in place during the 1918 flu pandemic. Photos have started appearing of people back then with the same ridiculous masks on. There is even a picture of a Major League Baseball player at bat, wearing a mask. Sorry, as a long time student of baseball during that era, I cannot accept that. 1918 was the last Red Sox World Series victory for many decades, just prior to the “curse” of the Bambino, when Babe Ruth was sold to the Yankees. I’ve read every book about that World Series, and would definitely have seen and remembered such a photo.
Altering or photoshopping old pictures is really nothing different than what Winston Smith did for a living in Orwell’s 1984. Like Smith, our court historians and professional “journalists” work together to bring history into accord with our present-day sensibilities. We are almost to the point of Orwell’s “unpersons” being thrown down the memory hole he invented. At this point, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Hollywood come out with a big production featuring the long suppressed contributions of transgenders during the Civil War. Assuming Hollywood ever resumes production, of course.
While many eminently qualified doctors have been banned from You Tube and social media, seventeen year old decidedly unqualified Greta Thunberg has been named to a ludicrous panel of “experts” on the Coraonvirus by CNN. Well, I suppose she’s no less an expert on viruses than she is on “climate change,” which she’s been asked to pontificate on by our illustrious state-controlled media and obsequious politicians.
Standing at the center of all this is our Tweeter-in-Chief; Tweetalini if you will. Whether he is just as moronic as he seems to be, or if he is a brilliant actor hired to play someone incredibly stupid, Donald Trump is definitely not in charge. He doesn’t appear to have a clue what’s going on, or to be fully on board with the lock down. He has bickered publicly with Dr. Anthony “Frankenstein” Fauci, the Pavlovian seventy nine year old orchestrating the government’s actions on the issue. This is nothing new for Trump, of course. Everyone in his administration appears opposed to his campaign rhetoric. Trump will probably issue some nasty tweets about Fauci, but then begrudgingly go along with everything he proposes. This is Trump 101.
The Trump Derangement people are literally wishing for him to die on social media. They would vote for Hitler over Trump. They have come to retroactively love the likes of George W. Bush, because of his public opposition to Trump. Anyone who hates Trump is good in their eyes. If we can just get rid of the buffoonish Orange Man, we can go back to the world of justice, peace, and fairness that we all remember so well prior to 2016.
The Trump Enablement people feast on Trump’s tweets, and demand nothing else. Sound bites and juvenile names are enough to satisfy them. Forget ending DACA, or birth-right citizenship, or the destructive foreign visa worker programs, or stopping the senseless wars, or rebuilding the infrastructure, or that autism-vaccines commission headed by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. They also continue to claim Trump has stopped child sex trafficking (even as Jeffrey Epstein was allowed to “suicide” himself under his watch). They breathlessly await the ever-changing date when those 150,000 sealed indictments will bring down the Deep State. They believe that William Barr, a swamp creature of decades long good standing, will fulfill Trump’s “drain the swamp” promise.
Virtually all Americans view this virus through the prism of Trump’s personality. They are committed to love him or hate him. If only they’d recall the advice of the greatest champion the poor and working class ever had, Huey Long, who said, “They’ve got a set of Republican waiters on one side and a set of Democratic waiters on the other side, but no matter which set of waiters brings you the dish, the legislative grub is all prepared in the same Wall Street kitchen.”
Rumblings from inside the establishment indicate we may be ready for a gradual reopening of the economy, and our society. This reopening, from what we already have learned, promises to be every bit as tyrannical and unnecessary as the shut down was.
Kansas City is the first, but certainly not the last, city to mandate that businesses will be compelled to refuse entry to customers who don’t have their “contact information.” This is no mere “show me your papers” kind of tyranny. It is a brand new concept, with Deep State Hall of Famer Bill Clinton as its spokesperson.
Clinton and other odious swamp creatures want to establish a “contact tracer” corps, to track and isolate those who have tested positive for this dubious virus strain, as well as those who’ve come in contact with them. One company is even devising a wristband that will turn a different color when you come close to someone who has allegedly tested positive for the alleged virus. Now that seems compatible with a free society, doesn’t it? Even Orwell’s imagination had its limits.
Several states have already come up with a predictably authoritarian (and unconstitutional) series of checklists and protocols for businesses to meet, before they can be reopened. As always, our illustrious leaders will trumpet their concern for our “safety” as the rationale behind the draconian rules. As Dr. Anthony Fauci, the primary mad scientist in this Pavlovian laboratory, has stated- we may never be able to go back to shaking hands. It’s just too risky. And will undoubtedly impact people of color disproportionately. Don’t you care about the children?
We have overwhelming evidence now that this entire thing is a plandemic, the greatest psyop of all time. On top of the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, and Dr. Birx of the White House, all freely acknowledging they are padding the numbers to get them as high as possible, we have a group of Pennsylvania coroners taking 200 deaths off of the COVID total, because the victims died from other causes.
We also know that hospitals are being paid $13,000 for every new COVID patient. And $39,000 if they put them on a ventilator. This seems like an even more irrational allocation of taxpayer funds than usual. But then, our farmers are also throwing away food and slaughtering animals, supposedly because of all the closed restaurants. And yet grocery stores still have shortages of these same foods. It doesn’t seem like it would take a team of rocket scientists to figure out a way to get all that food to those who need it.
Throwing away food while people starve is nothing new for our government. In a 1935 speech for his “Share our Wealth” movement, the great Huey Long declared, “Hogs and cattle were burned by the millions. The same was done to wheat and corn, and farmers were paid starvation money not to raise and not to plant…God forgive those rulers who burned hogs, threw milk in the river, and plowed under cotton while little children cried for meat and milk and something to put on their naked backs!” Nothing has changed, now that we’re in Great Depression 2.0.
There have been inferences that once America finally reopens, everyone will be required to wear a mask. Keep in mind, none of the absurd rules we’re all following can be legally enforced. They aren’t laws. No legislative body proposed them, or passed them. And yet, police are arresting a mother in Utah who was caught in a public park, allowing her children to play there. A father was arrested for throwing a ball with his daughter in another park.
“Social distancing” is a concept, dreamed up by the same devious minds that created political correctness, another concept that directly violates the Bill of Rights. And yet our out of control police forces, whom some optimistic souls theorized would be on “our” side in the event of a crisis like this, have demonstrated they will not stop the thuggery and harassment for one second. They are the enforcers of this tyranny, and they seem just as gleeful giving tickets to those attending church services in their automobiles, as they have been for years, terrorizing baffled motorists.
Let us examine a few excerpts from our brilliant Declaration of Independence, which has been a subversive document to the elite for a very long time. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…”
Now, unfortunately, Abraham Lincoln and the then already too powerful federal government destroyed the concept of the consent of the governed forever in this country, during the War Between the States. This was one of the guiding principles of our Revolution. And our own government shattered it in 1865. The southern states were indeed trying to “institute new government” of their own. But Lincoln and his Radical Republican cohorts wouldn’t allow it.
The past is prologue, as Shakespeare wrote. While Americans today seem compliant to authority beyond all reason, as long ago as the Civil War, northerners were willing to sacrifice their youngsters in order to quell the “rebellion” that certainly should have reminded them of the colonists’ revolt less than 100 years earlier. Once we permitted an imperial president like Lincoln to circumvent the Constitution, and wield powers never intended for any one man, the nation the Founding Fathers established was lost forever.
We didn’t arrive at this point overnight. Locking the country down, quarantining healthy people, requiring masks, and enforcing “social distancing” seems to have only happened in a few weeks time. But the table was set for this tyranny over the decades. The acceptance of the putrid Uncle Sam figure, and letting him “Want You!” to fight in foreign wars, false flag after false flag, often using the exact same kind of emotional propaganda, planting victory gardens, buying bonds, returning 96% or so of our horrific “representatives” to Congress every election- the list is endless.
Thomas Jefferson’s “long train of abuses” seem benign in the extreme compared to the corruption and high crimes the American people have tolerated for more than 150 years. From “Remember the Maine” in 1898, to the 9/11 fairy tale that ushered in the Patriot Act and shredded our remaining civil liberties, the majority of Americans are like a collective battered wife. The sheeple seem to think that the authorities care about them, and have only the best of intentions, despite all evidence to the contrary.
They are even referring now to the “post virus world.” Undoubtedly, we will have to “sacrifice,” as we’re always asked to do, and give up even more of our dwindling freedom. We don’t want the virus to win, do we? The new “new normal” will be even less to the liking of those of us who can see the emperor is wearing no clothes.
Not much more than a month ago, the various countries of the world were meandering along, mired in corruption, poverty, injustice, unfairness, and all the other niceties of modern civilization. The gap between the rich and the poor was ever widening. Freedom was something America in particular boasted about.
But within the period of a just a few weeks last month, virtually the entire world went on lock down. No police were needed. No troops were needed. Not a single shot was fired. When the dust had settled, healthy people everywhere were being quarantined within their homes. Voluntarily. Businesses were forced to close. All events and activities- including professional sports- were cancelled. Untold numbers of businesses will never reopen. Millions will be thrown out of work.
The culprit is a particularly nasty Coronavirus strain, COVID-19. We were initially warned it could kill millions in this country alone. While the common flu kills an average of 56,000 in America every year, nothing has ever been closed or cancelled because of it. Everything has been cancelled, for over a month, for this virus. Despite numbers that reveal it to have killed less than half of what the flu does in an average season, businesses remain closed and people remain sheltered in their homes.
We know for certain that the official numbers are being artificially inflated to a significant degree. The World Health Organization issued a directive weeks ago, instructing hospitals to list the cause of death as COVID-19 even when the deceased had never been tested for it. The Centers for Disease Control issues a disclaimer, in each official release of COVID numbers, that they include “presumptive” cases in those numbers. In other words, untested and unproven cases. Dr. Deborah Birx, the Trump administration’s Coronavirus Response Coordinator, has admitted that when any patient has tested positive for the virus, the cause of death will be listed as being from that, even when it clearly is not.
Over the past week especially, the establishment has been backpedaling furiously away from the fear porn they were spreading nonstop to the public. Fox News asked, “how could the models and projections have been so wrong?” Even CNN admitted their numbers were dramatically overstated. No one is claiming other than that the “experts” were wildly wrong about this. And yet, we are all still urged to listen to these same “experts.”
So, surely since they are telling us things are “leveling off,” and that they were incredibly wrong to exaggerate the impact of this virus in the first place, people will be returning to work immediately, right? No more tickets for “social distancing” violations, issued by our policing for profit officers who are faced with the least busy highways, and thus fewest potential motorists to ticket for minor infractions, correct? Surely, we can go visit Grandma in the nursing home again, before she moves on to her eternal reward? Or hug the grandchild we’ve only seen on Skype?
Well, apparently not. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Frankenstein-like point man on the issue for the Trump White House, has said we may never be able to go back to shaking hands. Our leaders seem to be insinuating that this draconian lock down could last months. Some scientists have said “social distancing” may have to last until 2022! There are ominous predictions from the same “experts” who were so gloriously mistaken before, that the virus could return in the Fall. Or maybe next Spring. Or it could always be there, an unseen enemy outside our doors. We are at war with the virus, some have said. We can’t let the virus win, can we?
This is not a dream. It is not a science-fiction movie or a dystopian novel. It is the reality we face today, in 2020. We have not been teleported in some way, into the pages of George Orwell’s 1984. Although the parallels with Orwell’s great work are many. There may not be a literal Big Brother, but the mentality of those who are buying this narrative is identical to that of the unquestioning residents of Oceania. The kindly neighbors reporting “social distancing” violators to the police mirror the actions of Oceania’s Anti-Sex League.
The uniformity of opinion among those who have a large public platform has never been so evident as now. Not a single “journalist,” politician, or celebrity is questioning this unprecedented authoritarianism. The celebrities in particular are such over-the-top cheerleaders that is nauseating to watch them; smiling vacuously as they host their shows or deliver state-approved messages from the comfort of their palatial estates.
But perhaps the celebrities have a right be concerned about this deadly virus. They have shown a remarkable propensity to contract it. CNN has been particularly hard hit. First, gangster wannabe Chris Cuomo announced he had it, and provided regular updates from his mansion. Then, fellow anchor Brooke Baldwin came down with it, and communicated nonstop with her adoring fans via Instagram. She recently announced dramatically that “I think I’ve nearly battled this beast,” whatever that awkward, ungrammatical phrase was supposed to mean.
Tom Hanks was fittingly the first celebrity to contract the virus. As a loud supporter of the totally discredited Warren Commission, and known to tweet out bizarre images of lone shoes and gloves he supposedly finds on the sides of roads, he was a perfect choice. Hanks’ tweet, in which he informed his fans that his wife, actress Rita Wilson, was beating him by 201 points in gin rummy, with a picture of his beloved Corona typewriter in the background, was full of symbolism. Why include a random number like 201? “Conspiracy theorists” quickly caught the less than subtle reference to Bill Gates’ Agenda 201. And then attention whore Madonna tweeted out a picture of her pecking away on her own Corona typewriter that same day. Who would have thought that two fabulously wealthy celebrities bother with heavy, antiquated typewriters in the age of IPads and lap tops? And oh yes, one of the things Madonna was typing about was pasta. You’ll have to read some of the Podesta emails published by Wikileaks to understand the significance of that.
But perhaps the most ridiculous celebrity turned out to be “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling. She breathlessly announced that she’d had “all the symptoms” of COVID-19, but hadn’t been tested. Still, the mainstream media reported her triumphant “recovery” from a virus she’d never been tested for, as if she’d just beaten stage 4 breast cancer. Now former Clinton aide George Stephanopoulos is said to be recovering from the virus as well. Who knows how many of these celebrities really had anything, even a common cold? No one likes to jump on the bandwagon of popular movements more than they do. And right now, having tested positive for this thing is evidently very popular.
What will the fallout from all this be? Will the growing “incel” (involuntarily celibate) community become a majority in this country, or around the world? They haven’t outlawed sex with your spouse yet, but since many lonely men in this country struggle to find dates, let alone sex, you can imagine how much more difficult this will become with “social distancing” rules in place. Porn is going to be more popular than ever. And “social distancing” may end the world’s oldest profession as well. Maybe they’ll come up with some kind of creative virtual prostitution.
The lonely elderly spending their final days in nursing homes already were largely neglected, not only by uncaring staff members, but by their own families. Now, with visitation forbidden, how many children or grandchildren who do care will miss the opportunity to spend a precious few minutes with their loved ones, before they leave this mortal coil? How many older grandparents will die before having the chance to hold their infant grandchildren?
The shutdown of businesses now has been going on for more than a month. How many of the dwindling small businesses left in our casino economy have already closed down forever? How many mid-sized ones will ever be able to reopen? How many millions will be furloughed, laid off, fired- however they word it- because of this draconian reaction? How can an economy based on commerce exist without commerce? The fact that the business community is accepting all of this passively can only fuel more suspicion that the entire thing was contrived for nefarious purposes. A plandemic, not a pandemic.
Montgomery County, Maryland has already issued a decree that everyone must wear masks in public. Look for other areas to follow suit. Walking around in public, watching the nervous, masked figures, scurrying quickly by at an appropriate distance from each other, is like being on the set of a science fiction film. Are we all crisis actors now? Recent protests in Ohio and Michigan, as well as the refusal of Brazil and Sweden to go along with the program, provides us with some hope. Perhaps the natives will eventually get restless.
The best outcome we can hope for is a return to some semblance of reality, with our rigged economy and dysfunctional culture. At worst there will be rolling shortages- they are already announcing that food may be in limited supply, along with power outages, etc. All attributed nonsensically to the “virus.” We may regularly go back into “lock down” status, for whatever excuse our leaders devise. The majority have shown that they won’t question any measure, if it comes from our corrupt authorities. No church on Easter Sunday? The mind still reels that they were able to pull that off, without a bunch of renegade pastors refusing to comply. And where are all the gun rights activists? Apparently, they are just fine with tyranny, as long as they can keep their guns. Just don’t use them to reign in tyrannical leaders.
76% of those in my state of Virginia support Governor Ralph Northam’s actions in a recent poll. There will be no protests here. I would be shocked if the majority of states don’t reflect this as well. As Thomas Jefferson said, “When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” There should be no question at this point about who fears who.
I have long feared a police state. Not the figurative one we’ve been letting develop for years now. I mean a literal one. Where they can stop you for any reason and ask you for your “papers.” Where they can restrict your movements, and your associations. Where they can confine you to your homes.
Yesterday, this became an unfortunate reality for me and all other Virginians. Mayor Ralph “Blackface” Northam signed an Executive Order that essentially locks my state down. Police can stop any motorist and ask where they are going. If they aren’t going to a doctor or the store, they can be charged with a misdemeanor. For now. And those essential personnel who are still working have been given papers. Yes, “show me your papers” is finally here in the land of the free.
Over the course of just a few weeks, America and most of the world has been subjected to a power play that rivals anything that George Orwell could have dreamed up. Whole countries locked down. People quarantined who have no illness. People restricted to their houses. “Social distancing” mandating that people stay six feet apart from one another. The closing down of virtually all businesses. No more going to the movies, or restaurants, or casinos, or concerts. Professional sports leagues and even the NCAA’s lucrative March Madness basketball tournament have been cancelled. All schools have been closed indefinitely.
So, surely all these draconian, unprecedented moves indicate that something really dangerous is going on? Instead, the world has basically come to a standstill over a virus strain, which has not even conclusively been proven to exist, that has killed a fraction of what the common flu kills every year, in this country and around the world.
The Coronavirus has been around for decades. Just look at the back of your can of Lysol. It informs you that their product protects you from “Human Coronavirus,” among other things. Many of us strongly suspect that cases of simple Coronavirus have been lumped in with those purporting to be COVID-19, the dastardly strain in question, which all the best and brightest “experts” inform us could spread across the world like wildfire.
The primary source for all the fear porn which has been emanating from our putrid state-run media for weeks, came from United Kingdom epidemiologist Neil Ferguson, who issued a dire warning that 2.2 million could die from COVID-19 in the United States alone. Without quite the attention given his initial predictions by the hysterical media, Ferguson quietly acknowledged last week that his numbers were wrong. Very, very wrong. His weak admission that perhaps 20,000 could die was not very convincing. And a pair of Stanford professors of medicine followed that up by saying the predictions of fatalities “may be too high by orders of magnitude.”
Instead of responding reasonably to these indications that those who initiated the alarmist talk from our journalists and politicians were utterly wrong, our leaders have doubled down on the heavy-handed, unwarranted response. More states like mine have gone into lock down mode. It is akin to Martial Law, without any visible troops in the streets. Given the lack of opposition to this authoritarianism, they haven’t needed any. Without firing a shot, as the saying goes.
Citizen journalists have posted a myriad of videos on You Tube, which depict not the “overwhelmed” hospitals that are literally bursting at the seams with corpses, but instead largely empty facilities. Jason Goodman has been filming around hospitals in New York City, the alleged epicenter of the alleged epidemic, and it has to be seen to be believed. Idle ambulances everywhere. Disinterested EMT workers and hospital employees. Many, if not most of them not wearing masks. Police harassing him from filming on a public street. I have a friend who lives in New York City, and he just called me this morning to report how non-busy the biggest hospital in Brooklyn looked. Something very strange is going on here.
Meanwhile, Dr. Colleen Smith, a doctor who specializes in “medical simulation,” whatever that is, violated every HIPAA regulation imaginable when she filmed inside an ICU at New York City’s Elmhurst Hospital. Dr. Smith complained about a lack of equipment and resources, the same establishment mantra we’ve heard time and time again from establishment sources, which is invariably blamed on hapless Donald Trump. Her video was published by the New York Times. The same day she was filming inside, Elmhurst Hospital was videotaped outside by a citizen journalist. You guessed it- it resembled a ghost town.
As I’ve made clear to so many who are parroting the mainstream line, “people are dying!,” yes, people are dying. They do everyday. As Bob Dylan, also back in the news this week with a better late than never song about JFK assassination truth, once said, “he not busy being born is busy dying.” The question is, what are the people whose deaths the state-controlled media is fixated upon dying from? How many of these deaths are actually from underlying causes like diabetes or pneumonia, or less frightening strains of virus, like the regular flu or the generic Coronavirus?
There are many disquieting indications that the wild overreaction to this is a hoax, even if the virus is not. The photograph of ominous rows of coffins supposedly emanating out of Italy, which has been allegedly hit so hard by COVID-19, which was proven to be from another country, taken years earlier. The Italian reports indicating that 99% of the fatalities attributed to this virus came from “other pathologies.” The story in early February out of China, that the Chinese were including deaths from pneumonia along with the scary COVID-19 cases. It is no exaggeration to say that, considering the draconian response, those in charge have a tremendous vested interest in significantly increasing the numbers.
Both the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control were caught lying about the same thing in 2009; they falsely inflated the Swine Flu figures. Sharyl Attkisson lost her job with CBS for exposing the CDC. No investigative journalism is allowed in this country, outside of amateurs on the internet. The CDC and WHO are front and center here, along with our perpetually dishonest politicians and laughable, lapdog establishment press. They are the ones selling this narrative. Why would any intelligent person believe them?
I have been lied to my entire life by the most powerful authority figures. I worked for the Medical Industrial Complex for 44 years, until being fired two years ago for helping a handicapped co-worker. You read that right. That’s the chance you take in a “right to work” state. It gives them a right to fire you for no reason. Our healthcare system is hopelessly inefficient and just as corrupt as any other part of America 2.0. The medical profession itself is the third leading cause of death in this country. When you enter a hospital, you take your life in your hands. So excuse me for not trusting in all the white coats issuing their dire pronouncements.
In Virginia, our unofficial Martial Law is in effect until June 10. Just imagine how many businesses will never reopen after being closed for nearly three months. How many employees will be laid off, and be left to deal with the ever-increasing cost of living with their $1200 checks that constituted the trickle-down droppings from the $5.5 trillion dollar “stimulus” package, which Ron Paul called “a massive transfer of wealth from the middle class to the elite?” Picture the massive unemployment claims, somehow paid for by payroll taxes which are not going to be collected from all those unemployed workers who are no longer paying them.
And we still haven’t heard a peep of protest from anyone with a large public platform. Not a single corporate leader whose dedication to capitalism compels him to protest the literal shutdown of almost all commerce. There is a stunning uniformity of opinion on this massive overhaul of our society, which happened in the blink of an eye. Only naysayers like me, with the voices we have on the internet, are pointing out how shockingly wrong all of this is.
America, even as it existed in its watered-down, often embarrassing form a month ago, is forever gone. Once our leaders have demonstrated they can institute such authoritarian restrictions on the populace, with virtually no resistance, it is a certainty they will do it again. Expect to see the kind of ridiculous color-coded “terror threat” warnings we saw after 9/11. When the unquestioned authorities declare that we are at “code red” in terms of a new viral threat, America will just go back into lock down mode. Americans will be used to it.
Helping to sell this narrative has been an astonishing number of celebrities. This virus evidently is predisposed to attack famous people who have shown unswerving devotion to the Deep State. It was entirely predictable that the likes of Tom Hanks, Greta Thunberg, Prince Charles, and Chris Cuomo would test positive. For the Coronavirus, as it is worded in all the celebrity cases, not for COVID-19. This could be the lazy, unintentional intermingling of a generic term for the deadly strain that has stopped the world. Or it could be an admission that technically they are telling the truth- the tests can only determine whether one has Coronavirus, not any particular strain of it.
But there is a huge difference between the two terms; testing positive for the generic Coronavirus is no big deal. It could just be a common cold, or an indication someone is a carrier, with no symptoms at all. If everyone in past years had been frightened by fear porn into getting tested for any sniffle, who knows how many might have been positive? They have somehow convinced most of the public that this virus strain is potentially far more deadly than anything since the Bubonic Plague, despite numbers that remain a fraction of what we see every flu season. With even the most severe flu seasons, nothing has ever been closed or cancelled. Certainly there was never any kind of lock down.
This has all been sold to the public on the basis of protecting us. After all, our leaders care about us. They have only our best interests at heart. And what is more terrifying to anyone than the state of their health? None of us want to put our loved ones’ lives in danger. And so we become even more compliant than normal.
Benjamin Franklin wisely warned, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Considering the continuous fear porn coming from our leaders, few of us probably feel safe. And their totalitarian response to an invisible enemy should make all of us feel demonstrably less free.
