The Memo is Out

I’m very sad to announce that I must now consider Fox News Network a member of the “Mainstream Media.” But that’s not what this posting is about. It’s about the memo that apparently went out to all of the news outlets in America. There are a few points to it:

  • Joe Biden is the winner 2020 presidential election. We’re not “projecting” him the winner, or announcing that he “seems to have won” the election. He is the “President-Elect.” Kamala Harris is the “Vice President-Elect.” They won. They are it. End of discussion.
  • Yes, we recognize that the vote is not official yet, but we’re not going to talk about that.
  • Yes, we recognize that Donald Trump (sore loser that he is) is mounting challenges in court, claiming wide-spread, systemic election fraud, and it might in some instances be necessary to mention this fact, but if it must be mentioned, the following verbal footnote shall be attached in every case: “…no evidence has been presented.” Variations of this phrase are allowed, such as “we have seen no evidence of this.”

“We have seen no evidence of fraud.” There’s plenty of evidence out there right now, anecdotal evidence in many cases, but a complete TV blackout has been ordered. After all, we mustn’t do anything to erode the American voter’s confidence in our election system, right? They weren’t so concerned about that four years ago when they were insisting that the Russians threw the election to Trump and that his election was “illegitimate.” It’s also hard to “erode” something that pretty-much no longer exists.

Here’s a good example. It isn’t the presidential election, but it is exactly the same issue that has been repeated in presidential, senatorial and house elections all over the country. It is related to the vote-counting software. Watch carefully, and be sure to listen to attorney Sidney Powell’s comments at the end.

That’s very interesting, and I do consider that “evidence” of voter fraud, but it’s just the tip of the iceberg. There is, however, one other thing I wanted to be sure to point out. Did you notice that CNN immediately cut to a “full-screen” when Kentucky began updating its vote tallies and kept it off the screen until CNN could update its ribbon? Do you really believe that this was a coincidence? It appears that CNN knew that the mysterious vote count adjustment was happening and tried to keep it off the screen. Wouldn’t that indicate that CNN at least knew about the computer manipulation of votes in real time? Were they a party to it? What about all of the other networks that played along?

Maybe there was another memo we don’t know about yet.

Guns and Ballots

I was in a gun store recently. I won’t say where or when, or who I was with. I probably shouldn’t even mention that I was in a gun store, but I was in a gun store, and I noticed something that struck me. Before anyone could buy a gun, they had to fill out a form. A long, long form. The Form 4473 (5300.9) Revised May 2020. It is six pages long–but to be fair, only one and a half of the pages are completed by the purchaser and three and a half of the pages are instructions. I used to be a licensed federal firearms dealer, and I know a few things about the 4473. You have to complete the form exactly right. You must put your check mark in the correct Yes or No blocks or the dealer can’t sell to you. (The check boxes are an improvement. Before, you had to write out Yes or No. Y or N was not acceptable.) You have to spell out the name of your address state and state of birth–no abbreviations. You can make a mistake and correct it, but I heard someone behind the counter say that you couldn’t have more than three corrections on the form. After filling out the form, you must present valid identification that provides your name, address and state of residence, and it must include a photograph, expiration date and be of a document type that is accepted. Once you have proven who you are, you must then prove that you are worthy to purchase a firearm in one of two ways. You can undergo a government background check wherein the dealer calls, gives the FBI operator your identification information and then waits for approval. It might be provided right away, or the dealer might have to hold for a bit, or wait for a call back in a few minutes, an hour or two, or maybe a few days. Or the prospective gun buyer can present a concealed carry, firearms owner card or other state license or permit that certifies that the purchaser has already been deemed worthy to purchase and own a firearm by being fingerprinted, undergoing an even longer and more exhaustive background check, and paying some money. Once the government has granted permission for the purchaser to take possession of a gun, the sale continues and (depending on the size and type of gun store) five minutes to an hour later the purchaser may leave the store with his new firearm.

As I stood there watching a surprising number of people going through this process in order to be allowed to exercise their constitutional rights, I also reflected on the deeply disturbing and quite perilous situation in which our nation currently finds itself. Of course, Joe Biden has been projected, or called or declared the winner by the Mainstream Media (a member of which I must now sadly consider the Fox News Network) but we all know a few things about this:

  • Neither Joe Biden nor anyone else will be the “winner” of this election until the electors authorized by the state legislatures (in whatever fashion) cast their votes and transmit a record to the President of the Senate.
  • Recounts are underway in several states and the margins could easily be changed.
  • There are serious and credible allegations about ballot fraud and computerized vote switching that must be investigated and adjudicated.
  • Every election ever held probably had “irregularities” but we are looking at nationwide, systemic and blatant cheating on a massive scale–an unprecedented scale. That’s what you get when you build, as Joe Biden claimed, “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”

How did we get here? Election security has been a joke in this nation for decades, and for justification of the electoral college you need look no further than the fact that certain cities and states have a long and colored history of voter fraud. The electoral college helps prevent one corrupt state from swaying the entire election. But now the corruption has spread throughout the nation, and it was accomplished under the guise of dealing with the threat of Covid-19. The last I heard, about one half of all the votes cast in the 2020 election were “mail-in” ballots, and in most states Democratic lawsuits, Democratic legislatures and Democratic judges made drastic, last-minute changes to voting procedures in order to make fraud easier–not harder. The Biden “victory” is the fruit of their labors.

So what’s my point about the guns? We have allowed our government to make it so hard to exercise our constitutional right to keep and bear arms that it takes hours or days to gain “permission” to buy a gun. While at exactly the same time our government has made it so easy to register and vote that in some places a person can literally walk in off the street, present no identification, cast a ballot and then head off to the next precinct. But that’s nothing! Fraudulent “mail-in” ballots have been injected into this election by the thousands and perhaps millions. In some states signature witnesses were not needed and no comparison with signatures on file was done. In some cases it was supposedly done, but Republican poll watchers were forcibly excluded from the areas where signature comparisons were supposedly being done. All of this is the result of sending out millions of ballots to millions of people who did not request one. Some of them are dead, some have moved out of the district, and some were happy to exchange their blank ballot for money or other valuable considerations.

It is grotesque, obscene, and inexcusable that voting for president, which is not a constitutional right, has been made so trivial that stealing an election is easy for those willing to do it; while buying a gun, which is a constitutional right, has been made such a complicated, confusing and troublesome task that the law-abiding dread it.

But guns are dangerous and we have to keep them out of the hands of criminals! Votes are dangerous too. They can be used to change the course of a nation, alter history and enslave millions of free people, but right now our election laws are designed to make it easy for ballots to fall into the hands of criminals. Therefore, I am calling for laws to be enacted that tie the right to vote to the exercise of the right to keep and bear arms. It should never be harder to buy a gun than it is to vote, and it should never be easier to vote than it is to buy a gun.

As I often say, I’m not holding my breath.

Endgame

I woke up a little after 5:00 this morning with visions of Trump rallies in my head and couldn’t go back to sleep. I was asking myself, how could a candidate with such historic popularity lose, especially in the face of the tepid, unenthusiastic response of the public to his opponent?

(I asked some of these questions in a previous post.)

How can a candidate win who campaigned almost exclusively from his basement? How can a candidate win with the second biggest political scandal in American history hanging over his head–in spite of the determined efforts of the mainstream media and the self-appointed social media censors? A candidate who left a trail of embarrassing gaffes behind him like poop behind a goose? A candidate who only days ago proudly announced that his campaign had put together “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics”?

(I can just imagine his staff slapping their foreheads and telling each other “dammit, I knew we shouldn’t have told him that!”)

How could a candidate win whose mental acuity was so obviously deteriorating that he sometimes didn’t know where he was or what he was wearing? A candidate who very recently declared that he and Barack Obama “think that it’s a right for people to have badakefcare” and announced that he would “lead an effective strategy to mobilize curaduranashduffadepressure.”

How could Trump lose the election in a supposed Blue Wave that never materialized? When the Democrats lost seats in the House where not a single Republican incumbent was unseated, and their hopes of taking control of the Senate were dashed?

How? As I concluded before, by cheating, and that is what they have done and to do it they did indeed build the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics. It was an amazing undertaking that encompassed unparalleled planning and massive and unprecedented changes to voting laws and procedures with hundreds, perhaps thousands of individuals participating. You almost have to admire their ambition and the sheer arrogance that led them to believe that they could get away with it. How could they expect to keep such a thing secret?

Well, they couldn’t expect to keep it secret, but they did plan to keep it hidden. After all, they control 95% of broadcast and cable news and 100% of social media. The instances of outrageous censorship leading up to the election were more than just attempts to safeguard their chosen candidate. It was a warmup for the herculean task that was to come: hiding the evidence of massive, systematic fraud that was certain to emerge following the conclusion of their Four Year Coup.

Everything seems to be going according to their plan. The mainstream media (Fox News included) are playing along, “projecting” Biden the victor in enough states to give him an apparent solid electoral lead, while denying Trump projected wins in other states where his vote margin was just as persuasive. This was designed to create the important impression among the voting populace that Biden was almost there and that Trump was the underdog, desperately trying to catch up while the count goes on and on and on until enough Biden votes are found to give him the lead. That is supposed to make the unbelievable more believable when they finally count enough fraudulent ballots, declare Biden the winner and immediately begin calling for the military to hurry to the White House and frog-march President Trump out the door.

I may seem to be rather insouciant about the most audacious political theft in American history, but I do retain some hope that they will not be able to pull it off. I was always kind of angry that Trump didn’t “do more” to fight the plot when it first became apparent, although, honestly, I don’t know what he was supposed to do besides what I did: warn that it was going to happen. But now I have seen a few hints that the Trump organization was not just sitting on their hands this whole time. It is my hope that they had a plan, and while the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics was gearing up, the Trump warriors were also quietly preparing to capture documented proof of the fraud.

There are always reports of “irregularities” in Democratic stronghold cities and states after every election (and I don’t doubt for a minute that they are often accurate) but after the theft is accomplished it is hard to secure proof that fraud was committed and even harder to quantify that proof. (Did it happen? Was it enough to change the outcome of the election?) But if you’re ready and you’re watching (as the Trump team was) and you know exactly what the cheater is going to try to do, perhaps it would be possible to capture the absolute proof needed to bring to the courts and the American people. In the coming days and weeks, I hope to see the Trump campaign produce shocking, overwhelming documented proof of a bold, systematic assault of our nation’s democracy, perpetrated by the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics. I hope that this evidence will shake the American political scene to its foundations.

I’ve been reflecting that when all of the dust settles, no matter who becomes the next President of the United States, a good percentage of the American people are going to be certain that the election was stolen. If the evidence we see in the coming weeks does not succeed in stopping the successful conclusion of this coup, at least all of America will know what was stolen and who did it.

And perhaps it will be enough to finally motivate the American people to demand that our corrupt systems be fixed once and for all. America cannot survive as a free nation with a lap-dog media (news and social) that is allowed to blatantly censor the truth and deliberately stifle free speech, a multi-tiered justice system where the politically favored are essentially untouchable but the law is used as a cudgel to harass, punish and crush the opposition, and an utterly corrupt election system that is openly manipulated by the Democrats.

Right now, we are three for three.

Bloody Hands

I have heard just about enough of this. Joe Biden (and others) have been accusing Donald Trump of being personally responsible for every single Covid-19 death in America–despite the following facts:

  • Original “expert” projections were closer to two million deaths. 200k was the “minimum” projection, “if we do everything right.”
  • Donald Trump’s actions at the beginning, such as banning travel from China and later Europe, were quick, bold, and almost universally condemned by those who are now criticizing him.
  • The president’s efforts to galvanize American industry to manufacture and distribute PPE, new medications and vaccines were groundbreaking and effective, bypassing years of ponderous, bureaucratic red tape.
  • The Covid-19 death rate in the US is 2.7%, well behind many other industrialized nations such as Australia (3.3%) France (3.8%) Ireland (4.1%) Canada (5.1%) the UK (6%) and Italy (8.8%).
  • When Joe Biden describes his plan for dealing with the pandemic, everything he says he will do is something that the Trump administration has already done or is doing.
  • Finally, almost half of America’s Covid-19 deaths are nursing-home related and most of those are in five blue states where governors ordered nursing homes to accept Covid-19 positive patients. These are the same Democratic governors who applauded President Trump’s quick response when he was showering them with newly manufactured ventilators and PPE and building them Covid-19 hospitals (that remained virtually unused) but who are now joining the partisan chorus condemning the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic.

There’s simply too much to say about this to try to get it into a single post (even one my ridiculously long rants) but there are three things I do want to say. I’ll try to be brief.

If we’re going to talk about bloody hands, let’s first talk about the unknown thousands of elderly Americans who died alone because of the criminally stupid decision of their Democratic governor to send other infected patients back to their facilities. I say “unknown” because these numbers have been deliberately obscured and the full scope of this tragedy hidden. In New York, for instance, elderly patients who contracted the Wuhan virus in their nursing home but then later died in a hospital have specifically been excluded from “nursing home” deaths. New York Governor Mario Cuomo, while taking victory laps and publishing self-congratulatory books about how well he handled the crisis (the highest number of reported deaths, 34,399, almost twice that of the nearest competitor, New Jersey) has had plenty of time to stonewall, silence critics and short-circuit any investigation into his contribution to the deaths of thousands of his elderly citizens.

Let’s also talk about the people who have died or will die because they have been denied a simply, safe, inexpensive and effective prophylaxis/treatment for the Wuhan Virus that preexisted the pandemic by about 84 years: hydroxychloroquine. Since it was mentioned as a “game changer” by Donald Trump early on, the Deep State, Medical Establishment and Mainstream Media immediately attacked his recommendation as ignorant and dangerous quackery. They asserted that there was “no evidence” that it was at all effective (there was plenty of evidence) suggested that it could be very dangerous (it has been used safety for almost 100 years and is considered safer than Tylenol) and began cooking up distorted and deeply flawed “studies” to “prove” both assertions. Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has suggested we should never shake hands again but considers anonymous sex a matter in which you can “weigh the risk,” and who declared masks ineffective at one time and argues in favor of a nationwide mask “mandate” now, quickly declared that hydroxychloroquine should not be used until we had the results of long-term, double-blind studies to demonstrate that it was “safe” even though it has been safely used to treat malaria all around the world for almost a century–and even though studies all over the world had already (and still do) prove its efficacy in preventing and treating Covid-19. In a way, this is actually Donald Trump’s fault. He should have know that the Deep State, Medical Establishment and Mainstream Media would attack the drug just to try to make him look bad. He also could have easily predicted that Big Pharma would attack. Hydroxychloroquine is cheap and no longer protected by patent. Nobody is going to make millions off of it. But only God knows how many people have died and will die that could have been saved by this safe and inexpensive medication. Just so that they could try to make Donald Trump look bad.

But if we’re going to talk about blood on hands, we have to talk about this:

Parapraxis?

A Freudian slip, also called parapraxis, is an error in speech, memory, or physical action that occurs due to the interference of an unconscious subdued wish or internal train of thought. The concept is part of classical psychoanalysis.

Wikipedia

Joe Biden is known to be a walking gaffe machine. I think that about half the time he is lying, but the other half of the time he simply can’t remember what is true or false. When you’re like that, every once in a while you’re going to slip up and tell the truth when you really didn’t mean to. Like in the debate, when he admitted that he wanted to get rid of oil and natural gas. Moderator Kristen Welker asked him, “why would you do that,” but her tone made it sound more like, “why would you ADMIT that?”

Here’s Joe bragging that they have “put together … the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”

https://youtu.be/MA8a2g6tTp0

It would be funny except that it’s not, because I think they have. Ask yourself, how can anyone hope to win an election with a candidate that has spent more time (a lot more time) hiding in his basement than on the campaign trail? A candidate whose very rare campaign events bring in tens of unenthusiastic attendees while his opponent is drawing tens of thousands of cheering people to multiple rallies in multiple states, two or three a day? A candidate who is walking around with what is probably the second biggest political scandal in American history hanging above his head? [The biggest is the attempted coup aimed at the Trump administration.] A candidate who averages one serious gaffe for every five minutes of uninterrupted speaking? Who cannot hold a news conference or ten-minute interview without reading his replies from a teleprompter? Who is on video affirming dozens of contradictory positions on scores of issues? Whose idea of reasoned debate is asking an interviewer if he takes drugs, challenging a questioning voter to a pushup contest or a fistfight, or telling a reporter that the voters do not have a right to know how he will respond to efforts to “pack” the Supreme Court? Who calls a young girl supporter a “lying dog-faced pony soldier” and his opponent’s supporters “chumps”? Who says he will raise taxes, confiscate guns, terminate America’s energy independence and spend trillions of dollars doing it?

How can they hope to win? They hope to win by cheating. That’s why they want to eliminate all voter ID laws. That’s why they demand universal mail-in balloting. That’s why they don’t want to verify signatures or other data on mail-in ballots. That’s why they don’t ever want dead people, non-voters and those who have moved away purged from the voter roles. That’s why they want to count the votes for days and days after the election. They will count, count and count and continue “finding” ballots in back rooms, closets, car trunks and storage units until, at last, the final count declares Joe Biden the winner. It’s not anything new. Democrats have a long and colorful history of cheating, but now they have built the “most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization” in our nation’s history and they are going to do it on a scale that is historic and unparalleled.

That’s why national polls have been manipulated to consistently show Biden in the lead–just as they did in 2016 when Hilary lost “unexpectedly” to Donald Trump. It is always intended to suppress the Republican vote, but this time there is a dual purpose. When the only poll that matters–the one on election day–confounds all of their expectations, this time they will use that to assert that Trump is trying to “steal the election” and they are planning–right now–to stage mass protests and riots if a Donald Trump victory seems possible. Screaming that Trump is trying to “steal the election,” they will set about trying to steal the election.

Search for “What is a Color Revolution?” and then get ready.

Eight Reasons You Should Vote for Biden

I admit that this post is too long, but there really are some good reasons that you should vote for Joe Biden for president. Here are just eight of them, and I want to give them fair treatment.

  1. You should vote for Joe Biden if you want your city to look like Portland, Seattle, Kenosha, Minneapolis, Washington DC or any of the other cities that have experienced major unrest over the past few months. Almost all of these are cities that are solidly in Democratic hands, in states that are solidly in Democratic hands, and have been for decades. The policies that have turned these blue cities and states into whirlpools of arson, looting, anti-police violence and murder are policies of the Democratic party. While demanding that Donald Trump denounce “white supremacists” and falsely claiming that he won’t, Biden refuses to denounce the leftist violence that is running wild in our cities and his staffers have contributed to funds that bail out rioters and other violent criminals. His running mate, Kamala Harris, has supported the same funds. Kamala visited a man accused of sexual assault and said she was “proud” of him–presumably for reaching for a knife and forcing police to shoot him in the back. She did not have any kind words for his victim, nor did she take time to visit two sheriff’s deputies shot in the face.
  1. You should vote for Joe Biden if you want your guns confiscated. When asked if people were justified to fear that a Biden administration would “come for” their guns, Biden said, “Bingo! If you have an assault weapon.” Don’t think for a minute that Democrats only want your AR-15s and your AK-47s. Any firearm could be used to resist tyranny, that is why they are all protected by the Second Amendment, and that is why, ultimately, they will all be banned. Biden has declared that Robert Frances “Beto” O’Rourke, who answered “hell, yes” when asked if he would try to seize guns, will be in charge of gun policy in a Biden administration. [My response to O’Rourke is here http://www.rkpaden.com/2019/09/16/my-response-to-beto/ ]
  1. You should vote for Joe Biden if you want the Supreme Court permanently turned into a mini-legislature made up of unelected liberal justices who serve for life. After decades of suffering with an activist liberal majority on SCOTUS, Republicans seemed poised to return the court to sanity by confirming a majority of constructionist justices on that body. But Democrats believe that they are entitled to control of the Supreme Court and are threatening to “pack” it if they can by adding more liberal judges to the bench. When asked if he would support this action, Joe Biden has refused to answer, asserted that the voters have no right to know what he will do and declared that he will announce his position after the election. (Interpretation: he will pack the court.) Update: Joe now says that he will announce his intention after he sees how the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett “is handled.” (Interpretation: no matter what he says now, if elected he will pack the court if that is what his leftist base demands–and it will be.)
  1. You should vote for Joe Biden if you want the U.S. economy shut down indefinitely to protect you from Covid-19. Biden has declared that he will not hesitate to shut the country down again if “the scientists” tell him he should. But while “science” is anything but settled on this (or any other) issue, Democrats have consistently wanted the nation shut down, ostensibly to save lives during the pandemic, but actually because they believe it will help them defeat Donald Trump. But face it, they just love ordering common folk around and telling them how to live their lives and the Covid-19 pandemic has just been the best opportunity they have ever had to seize such extraordinary powers. They are not wasting this crisis, and they are not going to be in any hurry to surrender those extraordinary powers. Their plans to “protect” the US from Covid-19 are going to rob you of freedom and kill the patient.
  1. You should vote for Joe Biden if you want the U. S. economy shut down indefinitely to protect you from the Global Climate Crisis. Despite his public repudiations of most of the “Green New Deal” Joe Biden has declared that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will chair his “Environmental Task Force” and that means this ex-bartender Marxist congresswoman will be in the perfect position to force Biden back to the policies that he supported months ago in order to win the support of the socialists. America’s energy independence, just realized for the first time in a century under Donald Trump, will be no more. Hundreds of thousands of self-sustaining jobs in the energy sector will disappear to be replaced by thousands of “green” energy jobs heavily subsidized by government bailouts–subsidies that also will line the pockets of campaign donors and other favored parties. (See Solyndra.) The environmentalist agenda has nothing to do with saving the planet and everything to do with controlling the American people.
  1. You should vote for Joe Biden if you want this to be the last (semi) free and fair election in our nation. If you want America radically changed from the nation you now know to something much more akin to Venezuela or Cuba, the Democrats are your party. They have promised that if they can seize power now, they will:
    • End the Senate filibuster, allowing them to enact any legislation with a simple majority of votes. This has been referred to as “the nuclear option.”
    • With control of the presidency and both houses of congress, they will enact statehood for Puerto Rico and Washington DC, adding four more certain Democratic seats to the Senate.
    • With full control of the legislative and executive branches, the Democrats have promised to enact mandatory universal mail-in balloting for all future federal elections, legalize ballot harvesting and outlaw all voter ID laws across the country. What we have seen in Minneapolis [https://nypost.com/2020/09/27/project-veritas-uncovers-ballot-harvesting-fraud-in-minnesota/] will be the norm all across America and Republican candidates will never win another national election.
  1. You should vote for Joe Biden if you really like the swamp. Joe Biden has been in Washington for almost half a century, he epitomizes the corruption and sleaze of the DC Swamp and every creature of the mud and slime has worked and is working tirelessly for his election.
    • Hunter’s Laptop: Just hitting the news, but it was turned over to the FBI almost a year ago during the Trump Impeachment debacle, and that Deep State agency has been sitting on it ever since. Fortunately, the whistle-blower kept a copy of the hard drive and it has now become public. Someone at the FBI leaked to the press that this story is being investigated as “Russian disinformation” but the fact that it is Hunter’s laptop has been verified, many of the damning emails have been independently corroborated by others involved in the scheme, and the Biden campaign will not specifically deny the facts, only repeating that the whole story has been “discredited.” (It has not.) On most of the “mainstream” networks, this story has received zero (0) coverage. If you don’t watch Fox News Network you probably don’t even know it is happening. Here’s a quick summation: there is now serious, credible evidence that Biden’s “fire the prosecutor or you don’t get the billion” phone call to Ukraine was a “pay-for-play” quid pro quo that protected his son and personally profited him and his family financially. There is also serious, credible evidence that Biden and his family profited from similar deals with the Chinese Communist Party.
    • Just as Important as the Crime, the Coverup: The swamp’s friends, who never blocked a single story damaging to Donald Trump, no matter how unsubstantiated, unverifiable or unreliable its source, have decided that no one should be allowed to share the story about Hunter’s emails and have blocked tweets and postings linked to the article about it on the New York Post’s website. (The New York Post is one of America’s oldest and most reputable newspapers.) Twitter has even suspended the official White House account and Facebook has blocked their page. Barely two weeks from the election, this amounts to election interference on an unprecedented scale.
  1. Finally, you should vote for Joe Biden if you never want to know the truth about the greatest political scandal in American history–the first attempted coup. All of the following are known facts:
    • Before Donald Trump was elected, the United States Justice Department and the FBI launched an illegal investigation of the candidate and those around him, based on a document that they knew was garbage and that they knew was paid for by his political opponent, Hilary Clinton.
    • The FBI lied on affidavits to the FISA court, falsified documents and engaged in other illegal and unethical acts to continue the investigation long after it was known that there was no grounds for it.
    • FBI Director James Comey leaked classified information to the press in order to compel the appointment of “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller to investigate the Trump administration.
    • The Mueller investigation was staffed entirely by anti-Trump lawyers who spent almost three years and $32 million trying to find anything they could pin on Donald Trump, without success, but in the process indicting and convicting several of Trump’s associates of “process crimes” in order to create the appearance that the administration was mired in scandal and controversy. Now, when an investigation into the corrupt origins of the probe has finally been launched, it was discovered that fifteen (15) cell phones used by the Mueller team had been “accidentally” wiped clean.

Federal Prosecutor John Durham has been investigating all of this, but his probe, now over a year old, has yielded only one concrete result, a guilty plea by a relatively low-level lawyer at the FBI. Durham’s long-awaited report continues to be inexplicably delayed, and will not appear until after the election…if at all. If Joe Biden is elected, the unknown facts about the first attempted coup in American history will never see the light of day. They will disappear into the same black swamp sinkhole that now holds the Fast and Furious scandal, Hilary Clinton’s 30,000 deleted emails, the Uranium One deal, the Bill Clinton/Jeffery Epstein connection and untold other goings-on of the DC Swamp and Deep State. That, too, is where Hunter’s laptop, its damning emails and Joe Biden’s corruption will disappear.

If this is what you want, then you should vote for Joe Biden.

Home of the brave

President Trump left the hospital yesterday, and he made a short speech, calling on Americans not to let Covid-19 “dominate” them. “Don’t be afraid of it,” he told us. Not unexpectedly, the Democrats, leftists and mainstream media (pretty-much all one in the same) went insane over his comments. They are furious that the president would dare to tell Americans not to fear Covid-19.

In my last blog, I wrote about projection and how common it is for the left to accuse their enemies in general and Mr. Trump in particular of exactly what they are doing. Most likely, they are simply following the tactical advice of their philosophical progenitor, Karl Marx. But it is also possible that this is truly psychological projection: seeing in others what you know is in yourself. They think that Trump and the Republicans want to use fear to manipulate and control America’s citizens because that is exactly what they do, day in and day out.

Climate Crisis: “If we don’t do something about it in the next 12 years, it’s going to be too late!” Hurricanes and tornadoes will multiply. California will burn down. The seas will rise. Coastal cities will disappear. Polar bears will go hungry. We are all going to die. It’s true (and they know it) that there is not one shred of actual scientific evidence that man has anything to do with rising global temperatures (and not a whole lot of evidence that global temperatures are actually rising significantly). And it’s true that they have been making these dire predictions for the last 30 years. But none of that matters, because they hope that fear of these things can stampede Americans into accepting sweeping, outrageous and draconian restrictions on our liberties.

BLM and Racism: “Racist white cops (and black ones too) are cruising the streets, just looking for a young black man that they can kill.” I really can’t gauge how many young black men have fallen for this lie, because in all of the videos I’ve seen of the “peaceful” protests/riots in American cities, most of the masked faces I see seem to be college age white kids. Statistical evidence proves that this is a lie, and just based on common sense I think that ordinary young black men probably do not seriously believe that cops are hunting them down with murderous intent. Antifa and the communist revolutionaries are probably the primary source of the unrest–and that should not surprise us, since Black Lives Matter is an avowedly Marxist organization intent on overthrowing our system of government and our freedom. But African-Americans are not the sole target of this campaign of fear. If Donald Trump is reelected, it’s going to get worse…much worse, they assert ominously. “There ain’t no light at the end of the tunnel,” says Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. If Trump wins, “f***ing cities will burn,” says a Sanders staffer. The message is clear: vote for us or we will burn this country down. They hope that their message of fear will sway American voters.

Covid-19: If you’ll give it some thought, you will remember that the virus first raised it’s ugly head just as the Democrat impeachment fiasco was reaching its absurd climax, and they and the mainstream media dismissed it as a distraction from the real story of Donald Trump’s treasonous quid-pro-quo and “obstruction of justice.” When President Trump closed the borders to travel from China, Biden called it “hysterical” and “xenophobic,” and the mainstream media condemned the action as useless showboating. But as soon as it became clear that their original optimism based on the reassurances of the Communist Chinese Party was wrong, they ramped up the fear-machine, predicting “2.2 million” deaths in the United States from the novel coronavirus of 2019. (“200 million” is the number that worked its way deep into Joe Biden’s head and continues to pop up there from time to time as Covid-19 mortality and, occasionally, the number of Americans killed by guns in the last decade or so.) Two hundred thousand was the number sometimes offered as the minimum, if we “did everything right.” In deep blue states and cities, Democrat governors and mayors were quick to use fear of the Wuhan Virus as a means to seize extraordinary “emergency” powers–powers that they are extremely reluctant to now relinquish. Telling everyone else what they can and cannot do is, after all, what tyrants enjoy most, and they will never let a good crisis go to waste. Entire state economies were shut down and millions lost their jobs. Small businesses closed for good, while mega-businesses like Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot and Lowe’s did extremely well. Liquor stores and marijuana dispensaries were allowed to stay open as “essential,” while health clubs, gyms and beauty salons were ordered closed (except when Nancy Pelosi or Mayor Lori Lightfoot needed a trim). Churches and synagogues were ordered closed and the religious disobedient were threatened with arrest and told that their rights “had been suspended.” For the most part, Americans accepted these unconstitutional orders, fearing the virus as much as the wrath of their despotic rulers.

Fear, fear, fear. People who are afraid are easy to control. That’s what terrorists know. That’s why terrorism is effective. That’s why what the Democrats and the left are doing to America now is nothing short of political terrorism. When Donald Trump stands up before the American people and tells them not to be afraid, he is demonstrating that he is exactly the kind of leader that we need now.

Fear is un-American! The first Americans faced a perilous journey halfway across the world to reach this continent. It was a rich land, but life was harsh and dangerous. Many starved, fell victim to pestilence or hostile natives. When the first settlements were secure, fearless men and women took their families and struck out into the wilderness, carving homesteads and farms out of the deep forests. Fearless Americans stood up to the greatest empire on earth at that time to win their freedom. Americans conquered the western lands, fighting for every inch of their new nation. Brave Americans went back across the seas twice to fight tyranny in the lands they had left, winning two world wars. Americans crossed the empty sky to reach the moon and place the flag of our nation there on its barren, lifeless soil.

I stand with Donald Trump one-hundred percent. We should not fear this virus. We should not fear “climate crisis.” We should not fear those who threaten us with violence if we do not obediently say “Black Lives Matter” when they harass us at our tables. We should not be afraid to speak out, say what we believe, put bumper stickers on our cars and signs in our yard. With some of these, the danger is real and others it is imaginary, but even if the danger is real, we should stand with our forefathers who did not fear the unknown forests to the west, the hostile indigenous peoples, the pestilence, the hunger, the darkness or the uncharted emptiness of space.

We are Americans, we are not cowards, and we will defeat this enemy just as we have defeated so many others. And God willing, in about one month, we will show the Democrats, the socialists, the leftists, the statists, the mainstream media, George Soros, BLM and Antifa that we do not fear them. Bring on your worst and we will give it back to you, because we are Americans and we are not afraid.

Projection

In a presidency that should be lauded for its accomplishments, one of the most invaluable services that Donald Trump has given to this nation is his success in forcing the Deep State out from under its rock and into the open for all to see. Similarly, his determination to drain the swamp has driven the swamp creatures (both Democratic, Republican and Other) out of their minds and into a state of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) that has given America its first crystal clear look at who they really are. In psychological terms, it’s called “projection:” seeing in others the flaws or faults that afflict you. In political terms, it is the adoption of this maxim of the philosophical founder of communism/socialism/statism:

“Accuse Your Enemy Of What You Are Doing, As You Are Doing It To Create Confusion”

Karl Marx

And so the Democrats have accused Donald Trump of trampling the Constitution and flaunting the law–even as they used the awesome police surveillance powers of the United States government to spy on his campaign and later his administration.

They accused Donald Trump of “colluding” with Russia to steal the election–even as Hilary Clinton paid for Russian disinformation to smear him and to help launch the baseless investigation mentioned above.

They accused Donald Trump (and impeached him) for a quid pro quo with the President of Ukraine–even as Joe Biden, their (soon-to-be) candidate for the presidency, could be seen on video threatening the President of Ukraine with withholding one billion dollars in aid from that foreign nation if the prosecutor was not fired–the Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption at the gas firm where Biden’s son held a “no show” directorship for which he was paid somewhere between $50k and $85k a month.

They accused Donald Trump of sowing division and hatred–even as they unleashed on him and his administration a tidal wave of vitriol and rancor unparalleled in American history. Since his inauguration he has been subjected to unrelenting attacks, some of them so explicit in their evocation of violence that they were worthy of investigation by the Secret Service…even if most of them did not elicit such an investigation. (Just a few examples: the image of Kathy Griffin holding Trump’s “severed head”, Snoop Dog shooting the “clown Trump” in one of his videos, and the play in New York featuring Trump as Julius Caesar, stabbed to death by his ministers.) Over and over, Trump has been accused of fostering hate and division, but he does so only by serving as the lightning rod for their endless vituperation. As I have said before, blaming Trump for the hatred in America today is like blaming the Jews for antisemitism. Now, with his recent hospitalization for Covid-19, Trump has drawn out the most disgusting clots of the left’s poison from America’s veins, and it can be seen clearly in all its disgusting infamy on social media.

A long time ago I stopped paying much attention to friend requests on Facebook. It’s not because I don’t want friends; it’s because I just don’t spend a lot of time on Facebook and I already get a lot more traffic on my timeline than I can actually observe in the few minutes that I do waste there. But I did have one friend to whom I responded much more often than any other. He is a doctrinaire liberal/leftist/Democrat and I enjoyed arguing with him about current events, but mostly just responding to his ongoing attacks on Donald Trump, to whom he usually referred as “ScumFraud” and often as liar, racist, traitor, etc. He even casually accuses Donald Trump of being personally responsible for all of the 200,000+ Covid-19 deaths in the USA. Our conversations were all pretty much the same. He would post commentary that attacked Donald Trump, I would defend the president and sometimes ask him for specific examples of the evil things of which he accused Mr. Trump. He would usually respond with some condescending references to me as a sycophantic follower of Trump, but never those specifics I requested.

I just unfriended him. I have never unfriended anyone before, and honestly, it bothers me. I didn’t unfriend him because of his leftist political views or the way that he argued them. I didn’t even unfriend him because of his oft-described hatred of Donald Trump and anyone associated with him. I unfriended him because he is so affected by TDS that he sees nothing wrong with publicly wishing that the President of the United States would “suffer mightily” and then “expire in anguish.” This is a level of blind hatred that I do not need, want or can afford to have in my life.

This is what the left, the Democrats and the mainstream media have done to America–not Donald Trump. They need to be held responsible, and the only way to do that is to provide the mainstream media with the ultimate slap in the face by ignoring them and voting the Democrats and leftists out of government in an historic landslide one month from now.

National sins and civil war

The United States of America was born with a birth defect: slavery. Contrary to what Tim Kaine (D-VA) asserted in the well of the senate, we did not invent slavery. It’s been around just about as long as humans have, and we did inherit it from our father, the British Empire. Slavery was America’s original national sin, and our founding fathers knew that it was an affront to the fundamental principle upon which our nation was built: that all men are created equal and are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among them: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It took about eighty years, but eventually a majority of Americans mustered the will to confront this sin and act to eradicate it, even though they knew that doing so would be costly.

A great many Americans were determined to safeguard the institution of slavery because their wealth was built upon it and they could not see any way to maintain their position without it. Despite being fundamentally religious people, because it was valuable to them they managed to convince themselves that it was right, and mankind has always been adept at justifying what we really want to do. As those who opposed slavery came closer to the power to legally ban that abomination, the slave states saw the handwriting on the wall and decided to leave the Union before abolition was imposed on them. The end result, of course, was a “great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated [to the proposition that all men are created equal] could long endure.”*

We are hearing a lot today about the evils of racism and slavery, and some are even demanding reparations for the crimes committed by some of our progenitors more than a hundred years ago–deliberately forgetting that other progenitors fought and died to end that evil. Slavery was a great evil, but if it is wrong to put a man in chains, what is it to rip a living child to pieces inside the womb, suck them out and sell them to laboratories? If it is wrong to make merchandise of a living human being, how can it be permissible to kill an innocent child and then make merchandise of them?

Legalized abortion on demand is not a birth defect, but neither did all Americans choose it. It was imposed upon the nation by a cadre of unelected judges who substituted a perverse and arcane legal calculus for the will of the majority of America’s citizens, inventing a “right” to end the life of an unborn child and creating a multi-billion dollar industry that funnels millions into the pockets of politicians who promise to keep abortion safe, legal and profitable. And just as the antebellum slave owners refused to even consider relinquishing their property, those who have been enriched by legalized abortion will fight to keep the abortion mills in operation.

The passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has ignited a firestorm of rancor and ratcheted up the stakes of this election to eye-bulging intensity. Why? Because as the liberal majority on the Supreme Court to which liberals/progressives/Democrats feel entitled slips away, they have realized that the handwriting is on the wall for abortion. It was never constitutional, it was always bad law and it was always pure evil to declare millions of unborn children non-human so that their lives could be extinguished. America has awakened to this horror, it is trying to right the wrong, and the abomination of abortion on demand must be purged from our national conscience. I sincerely hope and pray that it does not take another “great civil war” to atone for the taking of so many innocent lives. After slavery, our second great national sin was forgetting God and the best chance we have of ending the slaughter of the unborn without a great slaughter of those already here is to remember God, turn from our sin and plead for His mercy.

I’m afraid that ultimately the choice will be up to those who have profited by saturating the earth with the innocent blood of more than sixty million unborn Americans.

I am not optimistic.

*Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address

Dred Scott was Settled Law Too.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Donald Trump’s nominee to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court, is certain to be questioned at length (and ultimately opposed no matter her answers) over the issue of abortion. Just as slavery was America’s defining issue of the 1800’s, abortion will be our defining issue of the 20th and 21st centuries. Just as slavery was America’s original national sin that cost us a bloody civil war to extirpate, legalized abortion on demand is the terrible sin that may cost us even more dearly. If it is a terrible crime to put a man in chains, what can we say of the slaughter of more than sixty million unborn, innocent children?

“Roe v. Wade is settled law,” the Democrats like to say, and they will demand that any nominee for the Supreme Court assure them that it will remain settled law.

Precedent and the law. It is interesting how important the principle of stare decisis becomes once the Democrats have achieved their desired outcome. Prayer banned in public schools, gay marriage, abortion: the courts are the least democratic of our branches of government, but it is there that the Democrats have accomplished their most dramatic and corrosive transformations of American society. Transformations that they could not pass through the legislative process. Transformations that they do not intend to be reversed.

Roe v. Wade is bad law. It was literally made up, an exercise in creative thinking from the mind of liberal justices with no basis in the Constitution. But now it is settled law, the Democrats say, and may not be touched. So if the Supreme Court rules on something, that mean it is absolute, immutable, forever set in stone and no legislative or judicial process can ever change it.

Really? The people have no recourse whatsoever if SCOTUS speaks? That is absurd on its face. We are no more bound in slavery to a tyranny of nine unelected judges than we are to any branch of our government. What recourse do the people have through the democratic process?

First, legislative. Everyone seems to have forgotten, but we have three co-equal branches of government, and any two of them may overrule the third. Congress and the president have the power to remove an issue from the purview of the Supreme Court, and if that effort reaches an impasse (a runaway court tries to declare such an action by the other two branches”unconstitutional”) Congress may impeach if necessary. But a resort to such drastic measures would be one of those “constitutional crises” we’re always hearing about. The usual (supposedly) non-confrontational method of overturning a decision of the Supreme Court is as follows:

  • The people elect a president that will appoint justices who see things differently.
  • The people elect a senate that will confirm the justices that their president nominates.
  • The people wait for vacancies on the court to provide their president the chance to act.

This process can take decades, and when the lives of sixty million or so unborn children are the price of the patience it demands, it is especially unfortunate that the people, the president and the congress were unable to muster the courage or conviction necessary to restrain and overturn the corrupt decision immediately. But the fact that it took decades for the will of the people to move does not somehow render the original flawed decision immutable. If the people cannot in any way reverse a bad decision of the court through the legal processes of government, then we truly do live under a tyranny, and the only remedy is the one prescribed by the Declaration of Independence:

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it…

Is this what the Democrats are suggesting? That the only way the American people can overcome stare decisis is to overthrow their government and start over?

No, Roe v. Wade is “settled law” just like the Dred Scott decision was settled law. It is settled until it is reversed.
