During the roughly half-century of the Cold War, it was generally accepted that both the Soviet Union and the United States possessed enough nuclear weapons to destroy each other many times over. This state of equilibrium was nicknamed “MAD” for Mutually Assured Destruction. The idea that each superpower was prepared to wipe out the entire civilian population of the other was widely criticized as immoral, but we must recognize that it succeeded in preventing nuclear war or any other major conflict between these nations.

Volumes have been written on the concept of just war, and what is and is not moral in a conflict of national survival. The fact is, you must be willing to match the tactics of your enemy or you will lose. If the enemy bombs your civilians, you must be prepared to bomb his. If the enemy uses nukes or biological warfare, you must be prepared to do the same. If you are prepared to do so, there is a chance that the enemy will exercise restraint. If you are not prepared to retaliate, your enemy will attack and you will lose.

I hate to frame it this way, but we are in a war now for the survival of our free nation with an enemy that has no scruples, no compunctions and accepts no definition of good and evil except that whatever furthers their ends is good, and whatever (or whoever) stands in their way is evil. If you haven’t figured it out by now, the enemies of American freedom will do literally anything to gain power and keep it. I’m not going to put an exhaustive list here, but over the last four years we have personally witnessed the atrocious lengths to which the Democrats will go in order to get Donald Trump out of the White House and prevent him from eroding their permanent power base in Washington. We have lived through a four-year coup d’état that included weaponizing the nation’s intelligence services and justice department, unprecedented manipulation of the supposedly free press, secret and fraudulent congressional investigations culminating in a bogus impeachment, violent riots across the nation that cost millions of dollars and many human lives, and election fraud on a massive scale. All of this leading now to in an unprecedented attempt to not just defeat their political enemy, but to destroy him personally in every way possible.

And not him only, but the politics of personal destruction also apply to anyone who worked in the Trump Administration and now anyone who dared to support Donald Trump. A bevvy of major corporations have now announced that they will make no more political contributions to PACs that support Republican senators and house members who dared to challenge Biden’s electoral votes. We are watching as those in Congress who recognized that the 2020 election was stolen are systematically silenced, marginalized and, if possible, forced into some kind of personal exile where they are cut off from public life, blacklisted and put on a political “no-fly” list. The 78 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump will be next if the Democrats can just figure out a way to herd us all into cattle cars and haul us off to social reeducation camps.

This is what the Democrats, leftists, progressives and statists do. It doesn’t bother them to destroy the lives of their political enemies, because it works, and that is all that matters. Harass, silence, cancel enough conservatives and many of them will begin to choose discretion, the better part of valor. The rest of the American people will get the message as well.

The point of this post is that, as repugnant and repulsive as it may be, conservatives and Republicans are going to have to start playing this vicious game. Democrats can destroy the personal lives of individuals for non-existent crimes and never fear retribution for their misdeeds because we don’t do that. Big businesses can virtue signal by attacking Republican lawmakers all they want and there is no down-side because no one on the right will ever suggest a boycott or anything like it. It’s as if Germany began bombing civilians in London and Churchill refused to allow the RAF to bomb civilians in Berlin. The British could have felt very righteous and moral about it while Hitler was moving into Buckingham Palace.

That’s not what WE do, but unless we learn to retaliate in kind, what we will certainly do is continue to lose until we have lost our nation, our liberty and our lives.

Here’s my first suggestion: should the Republicans somehow keep the Democrats from institutionalizing their “most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics”and retake the House in two years, their first item of business should be to impeach Joe Biden (or Kamala Harris if she has managed to shove him out of the way by then). Any reason, no reason, it doesn’t matter. Impeach the Democratic president, and make sure that he/she gets exactly the same fair treatment and due process that Donald Trump received at the hands of the Democrats.

The Democrats have set the rules for this game. (No rules.) Republicans had better get in the game.

Kiss America Goodbye

If you think that title sounds alarmist, think again.

Undoubtedly the worst presidential candidate in modern history, crooked, cognitively challenged and thrust into office by the dedicated efforts of America’s lapdog media, her socialist Big Tech and “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics,” Joe Biden has not even taken office yet. Nor has the razor thin Democratic tie (+socialist Kamala Harris) in the Senate been installed. But the Democrats can taste the power that they will soon wield and they are already making their wish list, naming those whom they will persecute and punish, lining up for new investigations and prosecutions, and above all laying plans to secure their grip on the power they have gained so that they never have to surrender it again. In anticipation of their ascendancy and in cooperation with its expected permanency, Big Tech has already begun silencing any voice of opposition to the one-party rule that America will soon suffer, permanently banning soon-to-be-ex-President Donald Trump, blocking any social media platform that does not agree to censor conservative speech, shutting off access to servers and internet services for alternative media and laying the groundwork for a universal blockade of information outside the “mainstream” narrative. Books are being banned, political contributors outed and threatened. Fund-raising websites deny access to anyone not politically correct. The list goes on and on.

How long until this website is blocked or banned? How long until e-commerce sites that sell t-shirts with images and legends derisive of left-wing, socialist, progressive, statist ideas and personalities are dropped? How long until guns, ammunition and related goods and services are banned from the Internet? How long until PayPal and other e-payment options are denied to conservative organizations or websites? How long until churches find their live-streamed services blocked because the pastor dared to preach against homosexuality or abortion? How long until your bank begins “monitoring” your accounts to identify support for “domestic terrorist” (conservative) causes and candidates? Don’t dare scoff at these questions! Who would have ever believed that America would see the day that churches were ordered closed and pastors threatened with jail for refusing to comply?

“But censorship like that is okay because it’s not the government doing it!” That’s what they’re going to say, and I know because that’s what they’ve already said. Conservatives have no right to speak on college campuses because it isn’t the government silencing them. Conservatives have no right to have their opinions shared in the mainstream media–or even to expect that facts and events demonstrative of the lies told by the left are published anywhere that the public can see them. Free people have no right to be heard as long as it is the left-wing monolithic tech monopolies (that your government has fostered) that are silencing and crushing them. You have no freedom if it is someone other than the government depriving you of it. Really?

When was the last time you read the Declaration of Independence? If you’ve read my book, God, America and Liberty you’ve already heard this analogy, but here it is again: most ideologically-based associations (like churches) have two founding documents, a statement of faith or beliefs and a constitution or bylaws. The constitution or bylaws is a set of rules for how they will conduct business: how the leader is chosen, how the directors are chosen, who is in charge of the money and how it is handled and spent, etc. The statement of faith or belief is a list of the core convictions held by the association, the common ideas that bind the members together in one body. The rules are important, but the beliefs are why the association exists in the first place. The Declaration of Independence is our nation’s statement of faith. Please take a moment to read it in its entirety, but here is a very important quote:

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, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Our government was institution in order to secure our rights (all government are supposed to be) not just to abstain from destroying them itself. You have the right to life, and your government is not just supposed to refrain from killing you, it is supposed to keep others (foreign governments and other citizens) from killing you too. You have a right to liberty, and your government’s responsibility is not just to abstain itself from stripping you of your liberties, it is also required to prevent others from taking your liberties as well. Your rights were given to you by God. They were not granted to you by government. When your government stands by and allows the Big Corporate Mainstream Media to gouge out your eyes and stop your ears (by blacking out news that you need in order to make an informed choice in an election, e.g. the Hunter Biden story) and allows Big Corporate Tech to rip out your tongue (by silencing anyone who defies the left-wing narrative by trying to inform you, e.g. the Hunter Biden story) then your government has become destructive of the ends of securing your liberties.

We are at a crisis point in our nation’s history. Our government has long been out of control and indifferent to our freedom, but now it has gone from indifference to antipathy, becoming destructive of our freedoms. Very soon you will not be able to read words like those in our Declaration of Independence on the Internet or hear them on the television.

What then?
