The Tyrant’s Hammer

Speaking of insanity…

Don’t you wonder about why the progressive left is so eager to push utter nonsense like the idea of birthing persons, multiple gender identities, Critical Race Theory and such? It is the same reason that when you fly (back when the planes were still flying) the TSA made you open your bags, discard your baby’s milk, stand here, step there, take off your shoes, spread your arms in the naked x-ray machine, hold still while they feel you up, etc. It is the same reason that you must wear a mask–even though there is no science behind it.* It is the same reason that you must accept the vaccine or be excluded from public venues, transportation and lose your job–even though there is no explanation for how the unvaccinated can pose a threat to the vaccinated if the vaccine is effective.

The tyrant doesn’t give a rat’s posterior about the happiness of the LGBTQ++Whatever gang. They are simply a means to an end. The tyrant doesn’t care whether you believe in two or a thousand genders. The tyrant knows that there are only two but he intends to see them both enslaved.

The tyrant holds blacks, whites and everyone else in the same disregard. They are either pawns to assist his efforts or enemies to be overcome and enslaved or destroyed.

The tyrant knows that all of that nonsense at the airport has made no one safer in the air. He knows what you know: that there will never be another “hijacking” of a passenger jet because the passengers know what will happen and will take immediate action to stop it.

The tyrant knows that the mask is useless. That’s why he and his officers discard them when they think you won’t see, when they are visiting their hair salon, dining in their fine restaurants or partying at their multi-million dollar estates.

And the tyrant doesn’t care if you are protected from the Covid-19 virus by a vaccine, natural immunity or dumb luck. He doesn’t care if you avoid the virus and live or contract the virus and die. But he does care if you refuse to accept the vaccine that he has ordered for you.

Why? Because every time you step here, step there, raise your arms, take off your shoes, bend over… Every time that you allow yourself to be forced to call a man a woman because he pretends to be a woman… Every time that you agree to some stupid assertion such as “men can give birth”… Every time you admit that you are an “oppressor” just for being white, or “oppressed” just because you are black… Every time you subordinate your most personal health decisions to the orders of a tyrant…

Every time you do these things you are being conditioned to servitude. You are being trained to obey the Master’s voice. You are opening your mouth for the bit and bowing to the harness. Every time you surrender a bit of your freedom, you make the tyrant more your master and become more his slave.

I have been dismayed by how many Americans have so quickly yielded their liberty, fawned at the tyrant’s feet and held up their wrists and ankles for the chains. But I have been encouraged by how many Americans still retain the instinct to resist. To harden their necks against the yoke. To turn their backs on the tyrant, even when it is difficult and painful.

Yes, there is a tyrant in Washington, D.C. today, but all is not lost, for the star-spangled banner yet waves over the land of the free and the home of the brave.

*Trying to keep the virus out with a cloth mask is like trying to keep flies out of your home with chicken wire.

**How the vaccinated, who can still contract, carry and spread the virus just the same as the unvaccinated can be threatened by those who are unvaccinated (some of whom have natural immunity, which is demonstrably superior to the immunity obtained through the vaccine) remains one of the great mysteries of this pandemic.

Irreparable Harm

The Biden administration’s spokesperson is warning us to buy Christmas presents now (whatever we can find) because things aren’t going to get here by Christmas. Container ships are massing off the coasts near major ports. There are no dock workers to unload the ships and no truck drivers to haul the goods to market. The time and cost of shipping finished goods here has multiplied…and of course so many of our finished goods have to be shipped here because manufacturing jobs have been streaming away from the United States for decades…mostly to China

China, where our own government was funding the Chinese military’s biological warfare program, which used “gain of function” research (thank you, Dr. Fauci!) to create a virus that, once released (possibly by accident, possibly on purpose) would go on to kill millions of people around the world…

That Dr. Antony Fauci, who decreed that observing Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas with family was not allowed due to concerns about spreading the virus, but who approved the BLM and Antifa mass protests and riots that torched cities and wounded and killed citizens while the police were vilified, attacked, defunded, demoralized, handcuffed, ordered to stand down and forced to watch the cities they swore to defend descend into chaos, wanton crime and violence…

That virus, which has killed 700,000 or so Americans (if you trust our government’s numbers) devastated our economy and served as the impetus for a completely unprecedented seizure of unconstitutional powers by our governments, federal and many states…

Those governments, which have ordered businesses and churches closed, ordered citizens to remain in their homes, ordered citizens to wear masks, and now ordered citizens to accept a vaccine or face dire consequences, such as exclusion from public venues, accommodations and transport, and/or the loss of their livelihood…

That vaccine, which was produced using a completely new biological process (and aborted fetal tissue in some cases for production and others for testing, at least according to what we have been told) and which involves possibly severe side-effects (particularly for those with natural antibodies, who do not need the vaccine at all) but is required for all Americans regardless of their natural antibody status or personal medical decisions…

Those side effect that we suspect are not being accurately reported due to our government’s paramount concern that the truth might increase “vaccine hesitancy” but which even the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) demonstrates to be significant and in some cases very serious…

That concern about Covid-19 and the need for vaccination, which is so serious that this government has dropped our southern border, refused to enforce immigration law, and not just allowed but openly abetted the introduction of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants few (if any) of whom are vaccinated, a great many of whom are infected, and none of whom are required to take that vaccine...

I know, that was all essentially one long run-on sentence, but there is a method to the madness. The first wave of firings have begun, firings of the people who refuse to accept that vaccine–and some who have been vaccinated but are standing in solidarity with those resisting tyranny.

  • As our struggling economy tries to find its feet, when businesses in every field are suffering for a lack of workers, many of them are going to be fired (or quit) because they will not obey Joe Biden’s order.
  • As transportation and logistics companies struggle with recovery, and on the cusp of what may be the most severe disruption of global supply chains in modern history, pilots, flight attendants, luggage handlers, crane operators, truck drivers and so many other workers will be fired (or quit) because they will not obey Joe Biden’s order.
  • As crime rates in most major cities are skyrocketing, police officers are going to be fired (or quit) because they will not obey Joe Biden’s order.
  • As hospitals and other emergency medical services are struggling to cope with the pandemic and a backlog of “ordinary” medical conditions, doctors, nurses, paramedics and firefighters are going to be fired (or quit) because they will not obey Joe Biden’s order.
  • And while our country faces strategic threats around the world, a rising and increasingly aggressive China, the utter loss of international respect engendered by Biden’s disastrous retreat debacle in Afghanistan and the prospect of internal collapse and unrest, a great many of our service men and women, who have put their all on the line for this nation, are facing dismissal (and, as Joe Biden has decreed) a dishonorable discharge for refusing to obey Joe Biden’s order. (Just to be clear, since they are members of the military service, it is an unlawful and unconstitutional order from a commander-in-chief who is incompetent, incoherent, demonstrably mentally compromised and demonstrably national security compromised by China.)

I often thought during the Obama administration that our president was taking actions that he knew were detrimental to our nation’s health. I believed (and still do) that he was not motivated by a desire to see America thrive and (as the 45th President was to say) “make America great again!” Barack Obama did not and does not like America (like all liberal/progressives) much less love it. He (and they) want to “fundamentally change” America, and you do not want to fundamentally change something that you love or even like.

But even Barack Obama tried to give the impression that he was for America. He tried to let us believe that he was working in our nation’s best interests. The administration of Joe Biden has no interest in fostering that illusion. His administration does not wish to contribute to America’s greatness or even work for its survival. Every action taken by this administration so far has been calculated to do the most harm possible to our country.

Harm that likely will be irreparable.

Pest Control

Few things brought this nation together the way that the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001 did. Now, after twenty years of memes, posters, songs and slogans reminding us to “never forget” it is appropriate that we reflect on the fact that, apparently, we did forget. Now we should prepare ourselves for something like it or worse to happen again, because it is going to.

I keep hearing that “everybody agrees that we had to get out of Afghanistan.” That is a lie. I don’t agree, and I’m sure that there are others who think the same way. It is true that we spent a trillion dollars,* thousands of lives and twenty years in that country, but why did we go there? Yes, to get the ones who planned and executed the terror attack of 9/11, but there was more to it than that.

I’m not talking about “nation building.” Over the last two decades, many of the people of Afghanistan (women, in particular) learned what it was like to live in a semi-democratic civilized country. They have lost that now, and I’m sorry for them, but that is not my major concern. It’s hard to find any example throughout human history where freedom was given to a people who kept it for any period of time. Enduring freedom is never granted or given; it is won, and right now there are men in Afghanistan who are still fighting for their freedom. But their cause is almost hopeless. They will get no help and we just armed their enemies beyond imagination. They are invisible, hidden by our traitorous news media, betrayed by our treasonous leaders and forgotten by the same people who forgot what happened twenty years ago in New York City, Washington DC and a field in Pennsylvania.

Yes, the cost of the war in Afghanistan was high, but not as costly as ignoring an enemy who is bent on our destruction. We should consider what we got for the blood and treasure. When America first ventured into that nation, often called the “Graveyard of Empires,” I heard it said quite often: “we are taking the war to them over there so that we do not have to fight them over here.” And that’s what we did. We fought them over there and as a result we enjoyed twenty years of relative peace at home. Yes, there were some “lone wolf” attacks like the Boston Marathon bombing, but no airplanes flown into buildings, no nukes set off in New York harbor, no anthrax released in the Mall of America.

Everyone who owns a house knows that you don’t spray for roaches one time and then sit back and relax.** “No more roaches! They’re all gone!” No, pest control is a never-ending task, because they will come back. We spray for roaches. We treat for termites. We call in the experts to evict the mice from our crawl spaces and the bats from our attics. It never ends. It is a task that you must continue for as long as you own your home or accept living with roaches, termites, mice and bats. In fact, the worst of it was behind us, the fumigation, the stink of insecticide, the major expenses. We had the roach problem under control.

And then we just quit. The roaches didn’t go away forever, so we gave up. It is as if we spent a trillion dollars, twenty years and a thousand lives building a big mansion and then one day we said, “this house costs too damn much!” So we just got up and walked out. No, it’s worse than that. It’s as if we abandoned the house to a bunch of people who hate our guts, want to kill us, and now have a nice big house in which to plan their next attack. We even left our gun collection behind for them.

The Soviet Union/Russia didn’t go away, and we still have troops all over Europe helping NATO keep the Western World safe for democracy. North Korea and China didn’t go away, and we still have troops in South Korea, protecting everything below the 38th parallel from the scourge of communism. We have troops all over the world in places where America’s national interest requires–some more, some less–but we don’t just quit and go home because the threats to our security didn’t go away after a few years.

Why was Afghanistan different? I have my ideas and opinions. It is really hard–impossible even–to imagine how the Biden administration could have done more to damage America, destroy its reputation around the world and lay the groundwork for future gut-wrenching agony and loss than the manner in which they disregarded our national interests and those of our allies in Afghanistan. But you know, it’s also hard to imagine any way that America’s future could be more imperiled than by utterly abandoning our nation’s southern border to an outright invasion by the drug cartels and a horde of third-world escapees with (as hard as it is to imagine) even less knowledge of our nation’s history and tradition of liberty than the average graduate from a Chicago public high school. It’s hard to think of any way to encourage runaway inflation, crush our economy and bankrupt America than the utterly out of control spending the Democrats have indulged since gaining their thinnest possible majority in Congress. And even as a writer of fiction, it beggars my imagination to invent anything as absurd as a President of the United States crippling our newly achieved energy independence at home while boosting the energy sector of our nation’s enemies and fostering the dependence of our allies on them. It just doesn’t make any sense.

Until it occurs to you that perhaps harming, crippling and destroying America is the goal. Until you realize that perfidy may hide behind senility, and treason may disguise itself as incompetence.

Either way, the roaches will be back before long. Count on it.

*Please don’t whine about the money. We have wasted a lot more money on so many stupid things that brought us no benefit and even harmed us. Of all the trillions that Democrats have spent in just the last few months, how much of that money will go to fund left-wing activists, “Green New Deal” warriors, socialist and communist colleges and their programs, BLM and Critical Race Theory whores, all helping to accelerate our destruction? Not to mention the millions that will be funneled off to the pockets of crooked politicians, their donors, families and friends.

**Credit to Greg Gutfeld for this spot-on analogy. But even though this is his thought, inexplicably, he still says that “we had to get out of Afghanistan.”

We Forgot

On September 11, 2001, Islamic terrorists hijacked four passenger jets. Two of them were flown into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, bringing them to the ground in flames. One crashed into the Pentagon. Some believe that the last jet was targeted on the White House, but the passengers, hearing reports of the other attacks and knowing that they were doomed anyway, heroically chose to assault the cockpit and bring that plane down in a Pennsylvania field. Almost 3,000 people were killed and more than 6,000 were injured. The attacks of 9/11 remain the deadliest terrorist act in world history. For months and years afterwards, our motto in response to 9/11 was “Never Forget!”

Do you remember the celebrations across the Islamic world as news of America’s losses were reported? The guns fired into the air, the laughter, the cheers, the shopkeepers handing out candy to the children? It was a terrible blow to the United States, but we struck back. Almost ten years later, Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of that attack, died in Pakistan with an American bullet in his brain put there by a U. S. Navy SEAL. The Taliban, who allowed bin Laden to shelter in Afghanistan while planning and executing the attack, also paid a dear price. The United States entered Afghanistan, crushed the Taliban and installed a (more or less) democratically-elected government.

Now, almost twenty years after that devastating attack, after a trillion dollars spent and thousands of American lives lost, the Islamic terrorists of the world are celebrating again. They are celebrating because, with Afghanistan almost completely under our control, a stable government in place, the Afghan people–for the first time in history–experiencing a taste of freedom, and after twenty years of safety at home from a significant terrorist attack, the United States suddenly surrendered and went home.

The United States of America, arguably the most powerful nation on earth, tucked tail and scurried out in the middle of the night leaving behind a billion dollars worth of sophisticated high-tech materiel that will now equip the Taliban warriors as they terrorize and subdue the Afghan people. America left behind thousands of Afghan patriots who risked their lives to aid our cause and to whom we had made solemn promises of safety, and who will now be hunted down and murdered by the Taliban using those weapons that Joe Biden donated to their cause. And we left behind hundreds (perhaps thousands–we don’t know for sure) of American citizens who will now serve as hostages to the Islamic terrorists to whom we ceded control of the country.

The attack of 9/11 was devastating to America, but it drew us together as a nation and strengthened our resolve to recover and exact revenge on those who planned that attack. What has just been done to the United States is worse than the events of 9/11. Much worse. America is an idea, and you cannot destroy an idea by flying planes into buildings and killing people–even thousands of them. You destroy the idea of America by seizing control of its government, demoralizing and dividing its people, infiltrating its population with millions of illegal immigrants and illegally imported refugees, corrupting its justice with preferential treatment for political allies and harsh persecution of political enemies, humiliating and betraying its warriors, alienating its allies, polluting its reputation with the stink of failure, dishonor and treachery, and lying to the citizens of this great country until the public despair of ever hearing the truth again from the nation’s leaders.

Joe Biden, the Democrats, the Deep State, the Globalists and their allies in the “woke” United States Military high brass are the ones who flew these planes into our building and brought it down. Where is the outrage? Where is the anger? Where is the righteous fury of the American people directed at the people who dealt the United States this terrible blow? Where is the leader who will rally Americans now? Where is our resolve to avenge this damage to our nation? Where is the voice that will unite all Americans in the cause of saving the country where our children must live their lives? Who will demand accountability for the ones who carried out this attack?

We have got to stop electing people who hate our country.

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.

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.

The Unarmed Man with a Knife

“Instead of standing there and teaching a cop, when there’s an unarmed person coming at them with a knife or something, you shoot them in the leg instead of in the heart is a very different thing. There’s a lot of different things that could change,” Biden said in a meeting with community leaders at Bethel AME Church in Wilmington, Del.

I actually had to look that up because (and I hate to admit this) I couldn’t believe that even Joe Biden said that, but apparently he did. The article quoted above provides some very apt, very common sense analysis on why this is patently stupid advice, so I’m mostly going to stay away from that, but I will say that in my opinion, the article was just a little too soft on the “patently stupid” observation. It takes about two seconds for a man (even an unarmed man) with a knife to charge you from ten feet away and mortally wound or instantly kill you. If you are not in mortal danger, you don’t use deadly force. If you are in mortal danger, you shoot to kill. Even leaving aside the stupidity of risking your life, shooting to wound would leave the shooter open to the charge that he was not actually in fear for his life and therefore the use of deadly force was not justified.

Off to prison you go!

But I sat down at my keyboard tonight to record one simple observation: of all the stupid, nonsensical, totally incoherent thoughts that former Vice President Joe Biden has expressed, surely this one has to rank near the top. An unarmed man with a knife or something? Something like a sword? Something like a handgun, maybe? Or a hand grenade? Maybe the unarmed man has a chainsaw? Or perhaps the unarmed man is armed with a semi-automatic “assault weapon” with a “high-capacity magazine”?

We all know that Joe Biden is a walking gaffe machine, but this is just too much.
