Clinical Insanity Sets In.



May a just and merciful God save us from the psychopathic hatred of Democrats.

Only a complete mad man would risk that humanity be sacrificed to a nuclear holocaust upon the alter of their blind and seething hatred of Donald Trump. More frightening still is that not a single person on this panel look at Begala with even the least bit of incredulity nevermind condemnation.

The sooner this man is strapped into a straight jacket and delivered to a mental institution and subjected to heavy doses of Thorazine the better off we will all be.

Encountering The Annoying Neocon

I recently made a comment on one of Bernie Goldberg's latest columns purporting to give advice, unsolicited of course, to President Trump. My having the temerity to point out that Bernie had never had anything nice or supportive of the President from the moment he announced his candidacy and as such there would be no reason to expect Trump would read his column or take his advice so that substantively it was little more than just another list of complaints being spewed into the echo chamber of the neocon blogosphere.

This wasn't the first time I found myself being criticised for commenting on his columns with words to the effect "Well if you don't like what Bernie says what do you bother reading him or commenting?" I swear some of these people live in Plato's cave. 

This time was different however as I found myself coming under repeated attacks by one John Daly who's arguments consisted of calling me a mindless Trump supporter and conspiricy theorist. Keep in mind that after calling me a self important nobody he pointed out that he not only wrote columns for Bernie's website but also for the National Review and had appeared as a guest on Glenn Beck's (failing) live blog The Blaze! 

I told him such a CV simple proved he was of the same neocon stripe as Bernie himself and I asked him if he was Bernie's personal attack dog (i.e. forum moderator) and was he his food taster as well. I further asked if Beck had paid him for his appearance with some ground up Cheetos. 

None of this sat well with Mr. Daly. (Neocons like leftists have have very poorly developed senses of humor.) The first question was deflected with a non answer answer, the second as impossible because they lived in different parts of the country and the third by telling I needed to look up what the meaning of "guest" was. I can only surmise that Beck paid him for his advice exactly what it is worth, nothing. After a bit more parrying and point out his apparently ignorance of historical realities I concluded with the following statement.

You are nothing more than a phony and an ignorant lackey of forces I doubt you understand. Even if you did it would just prove you the most dangerous kind of fool.

What you do is (falsely) present as intellect that which is but rhetorical opinion used in the service of ideology. If I had to cite just one thing that I have learned in sixty years of studying history, it is that political ideology and philosophies are nothing more than rhetoric used to obtain power and that the only thing that matters is what is done with power once attained. Collectivism, no matter what it's form or what it claims to be or disguises itself as is the path to tyranny and the antithesis of what the American Revolution represents.

The sovereignty of the individual is the basis of the sovereignty of local government which becomes the basis of the sovereignty of state and then national governments. But there the progression must stop because national governments and to some extent state governments, in order to persist, must be based in the bonds of common cultural and linguistic identity. Dissolve these bonds and the very concept of sovereignty itself disintegrates  back down the chain to the level of the individual, at which point men become ciphers, subject rather than citizens and tyranny reigns supreme.

You would be served by remembering Santayana's full quotation not the truncated one most are familiar with.

"Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In the first stage of life the mind is frivolous and easily distracted, it misses progress by failing in consecutiveness and persistence. This is the condition of children and barbarians in which instinct has learned nothing from experience."

President Trump's speech in Warsaw and his speech on the proper basis on international relations early in his campaign were reflections on this understanding. Deny it it all you want. You can't refute it so you retreat into petty sarcasm and poor attempts at belittling humor which does nothing more than exposes how shallow your intellect really is.

You see some people can write based on actual scholastic research as opposed to your pseudo-intellectualism. There are far more important things to be learned from the lessons of history than from the sexual peccadillos Hulk Hogan or the self-inflicted wounds of Megyn Kelly. (Two of Daly's recenet pieces at Nat. Review) More useless and dangerous distractions would be hard to find. At lest the likes of CNN and MSNBC are honest in their hatred, whereas you disguise yours in obfuscation pretending to be insight.

The New York Times Becomes Saturday Night Live.

So far the Russian collusion narrative has been a major failure for the left. Frankly I've lost count of the number of times that one so-called news outlet or another has been busted peddling one fake story after another. But then these hate mongers don't possess any sense of embarrassment or shame.

Wait! Is that a Russian hat Ann is wearing?
What more proof of collusion do we need?
Consequently here we go with another series of highly suspicious accusations built around an actual meeting that took place after the nominating convention. The meeting, according to several reports was to discuss opposition to changes in Russian foreign adoptions policy. Well apparently that wasn't going to gather any traction in furthering the collusion narrative so a meer 24 hours later the new avenue of attack is that the meeting was really about some vague and unestablished rumor that someone had promised to deliver dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Seriously, there people get more laughably desperate with each passing day. Nevermind that even if such a promise was made and some information was passed, there is once again no evidence that the Trump campaign considered it credible or that they used it. None, nada, zero, zip, zilch. If they had any evidence that they did the Times would have run with it right up front.

In fact, the counter story that this was an attempt by Hillary operatives to plant some sort of a provably false narrative that could then be used as proof that their was collusion seems far more credible to me. The Clintons couldn't sneak their garbage in the back door so now they want try and force it through the front door using the battering ram of the New York Times.

"This sorry just in: Hillary Clinton
is still not the President!"
There is no depth that the Clintons or the media establishment will not sink to in their attempt to derail this President. Project their own tactics and motives on the President is apparently all they have left. I look forward to the President's twitter blast in response to this latest steaming pile of excrement. Maybe something along the lines of an old Chevy Chase SNL bit. " This story just in, Hillary Clinton is still not the President!"

G20, Why Do They Bother?

For the last couple of decades, every year we get these so-called G20 or G7 summit conferences. Increasingly they have become little more than excuses for gatherings of violent anarchists and leftists to reek havoc and destruction on one major city after another.
Violence and destruction for the
 sake of violence and destruction.
In today's world of instantaneous communication I doubt there is little that is accomplished at these meetings, other than "Gee look at me photo opportunities, that could not be accomplished electronically. Is a photo shoot really worth the millions of dollars or euros of costs in damages and security operations? Does anyone seriously think that anybody gives a crap about what Mexico, South Africa or Indonesia think about relations between the US and Russia?

Yes face to face meetings are important and can bring about significant changes and or policy initiatives. But what dictates that the whole world needs to know about them months or weeks in advance and give these violent disruptive forces time to organize in advance.

If there is some important issue that requires a one on one meeting I see no reason this head of state or that can't pick up the phone and say "Mr. Prime Minister or President we need to meet" then agree on a location, have their meeting and then either hold a surprise joint press conference or issue joint or simultaneous statements.

Straight out of the dystopian
world of a Mad Max movie.
If anything, I'd say it is just as important that these violent hate groups need to be deprived of platforms and opportunities to operate. They do not represent social or cultural progress but rather degeneration to the crudest of bestial instincts. Who in their right mind would look to them for political acumen or advice.

CNN Falls To A Little Blue Bird.

The President's latest Twitter storm has the poor darlings in the media are just beside themselves. They want the public to see a nearly  decade old video of Trump in a staged production as an assault against the freedom of the press. What it actually is a confrontation  of a so called news channel that has been  caught in lie after lie after lie.

What the left is really upset about however is that Trump has broken the paradigm that said the President only communicated directly with the public at the State of the Union speech or in a standardized format of a speech to this organization or that one. The other exception bring in the case of some national emergency. Other wise the President spoke to the press and the press passed it on to the public as they chose to interpret it. In any case the press exercised a great deal of control of how and when and what information went out to the public and it never did so without their own editorial spin on it.

Well Trump said the hell with that and just as during the campaign, now speaks directly to the public how and when he likes and about what he likes. He neither wants nor asks for the opinion of the press, especially not CNN.

In this way the talking heads are out maneuvered at almost every turn. By they time they try to form a consensus reaction to one set of tweets he comes out with another that catches them flat footed yet again.

Then throw in the combination of the likes of Project Veratas that catches some media mafioso speaking honestly rather than in accordance with an agenda and forced retraction after forced retraction because they have abandoned any standards of honest journalism and they find themselves caught in a reactive mode. Their foibles, hypocrisy and lies become the news, not something Trump said or did.

The deeper and deeper Trump pushes the media and the Democrats into this defensive position the more outrageous and unhinged there responses become.

The mold is broken, they no longer control the narrative and there is no going back. Every politician, left and right, from City Council to the Senate is going to make social media the central aspect of their operations for the simple reason that Trump has proven it to be a highly effective tool. The MSM knows it and their not liking it isn't going to change it. All there protestations are now akin to a dead snake that hasn't stopped twitching yet.

But don't you worry my dear leftist friends. You still have stuttering Nancy, Mad Maxine, Liawatha and the 1% socialist Bernie on their side! Good luck with that because in the meantime the rest of us will be drying your salty tears for a giant batch of Margaritas!

A Different Kind Of Reporting

Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame who has done nothing of note since, is desperately seeking relevance in the Trump era. He is now calling for "a different kind of reporting" to confront a "malignant Presidency".

Excuse me Carl but i wasn't aware that you were now the front man for the Comedy Channel. Actually I thought "a different kind of reporting" was what we have been seeing since Trump declared his candidacy. What is otherwise know as lying and making shit up out of whole cloth.

With each passing week the media and reporters like Bernstein get more and more desperate as scheme after scheme falls apart and story after story gets shot full of holes and major media outlets are forced into making retraction after retraction.

They are so blinded by their own  prejudice and refusal to accept the reality of Trump's victory that they have rendered themselves incapable of seeing that all they are accomplishing is both cementing Trump's base by confirming everything Trump has accused them of over the last year and making themselves look like utter fools.

I can only hope that they keep it up to the point that what little credibility they have left with the public is completely destroyed.

As the old axiom goes; When your opponent is making mistakes just get out of the way.

Incompetence, Arrogance Or Just Plain Old Stupidity. Take Your Pick

The MSM, CNN in particular, has been feeling a bit perplexed of late. Oh hell let's be frank about it. They've got their nuts in a vice and they don't like the squeeze their feeling. It doesn't matter that they are the ones that put them in there and it's they who with their persistant lying that keeps turning the handle.

Reaching a point of desperation they're now claiming that President Trump calling them out for the lying sacks of shit that they are is making them feel threatened. They're like the mugger who got their ass whipped by their would be victim and now plead to the judge that if the victim would have just handed over his wallet nobody would have been hurt never mind facing charges. They're not sorry for their lies. They're sorry they got caught.

Almost as soon as Donald Trump won his first primary race, in spite of the media saying it would never happen, his supporters have faced not just threats but very real violence and assaults and even bloody beat downs.

All through this, the MSM has either played these assaults as nothing serious at best or simply refused to cover them at worst. It's these sane assholes who have been carrying water for the DNC that have been ginning up the violent rhetoric since the moment of Hillary's humiliating defeat. That the humiliation and defeat we're theirs to own as well is the last thing they will admit.

Frankly I would not be terribly upset to see some CNN or MSNBC reporter take a serious thrashing because I don't see any other way they are going to begin to understand that they are supposed to be honest and dispassionate brokers of information. Sure they are entitled to their opinions just like anybody else but they need to confine their opinions to the editorial section and quit trying to pass them off as news.

Why defies common sense is that they either can't or refuse to see that the public not just sees through their bullshit and their sick and tired of it, their sick and tired of these talking heads acting repeatedly as if calling themselves journalists exempts them from the rules of common decency, courtesy and respect.

If indeed it does come down to some frustrated citizen giving the likes of Wolfie boy, Erin Burnett ot Mourning Joe bloody nose or worse, it will be nothing more than a self-inflicted wound and a justly deserved one at that. They underestimate just how sick the public is of them and how much many of us would enjoy watching it as a repeating loop on YouTube.

If that vice handle were in my hand I'd be giving it some hard and fast turns. The only question would be what's louder, their shreaks of agony or mine of delight.

Simple Questions For The Simpletons In The News Media.

Who were the commanding officer and the senior officer on the bridge of the container ship at the time of the collision? Are they Muslims?

Are the recent series of fires in London arson? Are the (possible) arsonists Muslims?

Are these incidents just new and deadly ways means of celebrating Ramadan?

After all sacrificing infadels and other Muslims for the glory of Allah is nothing new. To dismiss the possibility of the questions would be absurd. Oh wait we're talking about the news media. Nevermind​.

Horst Wessel Is Reborn From The Womb Of Violent Rhetoric.

Since we'll before November's election the rhetoric coming from the left has been laced with words of violent connotation. With Hillary's humiliation at the polls the connotations have become implications and justifications that have now become escalations from assaults with fists and baseball bats to the use of firearms with murderous intent.

Yesterday's shooting did not occur in a vacuum. From Kathy Griffin's stunningly callous photo shoot to the completely unveiled call for the assassination of the President in New York's Theater in the Park presentation, the provocation curve has moved into the near vertical. What did they think was going to happen?

I have not the slightest doubt that an exploration of the internet history of yesterday's would be assassin will reveal his having visited numerous sites displaying the most overt calls to bloody violence.  How then are Hodgkinson's actions any different from that of some domestic Jihadist, radicalized by the internet or his local Imam? It is the simplest and most obvious of parallels but don't expect the MSM or any Democrat to acknowledge its clearly exists.

The only real questions remaining are, have we gone past some psychological tipping point? Is it even possible for the leading voices of the left to have any real influence in dialing back the rhetoric and bringing the street anarchists and communists they have given birth to under control or has their callous disregard for the possible consequences of their words and actions kicked open Pandora's Box and smashed it beyond any hope of repair? Was this their hidden intent all along?

Bernie Sanders and the rest of the closet communists who call themselves Democrats can fain all the revulsion they want. It won't change their responsibility one single bit. You don't train a pitbull to fight, poke at it with a sharp stick and then claim innocence when it snaps a cardboard leash and goes for the first available throat.

If Congressman Scalise had not been part of the Republican leadership it's quite possible that there would not have been any Capital Police officers present at today's baseball practice. Then who knows what the body count might have been? We should probably at least be thankful that this weak minded fool was not any kind of competent marksman but that doesn't lessen the responsibility of the authors of the violent rhetoric that clearly inspired his actions.

Worse I fully expect that some mindless recording artist (yes Katy Perry, I'm talking g about you) will soon pen and promote an anthem glorifying Hodgkinson's martyrdom to the cause of the "resistance". Hodgkinson will become the new Horst Wessel but that's another parallel will be deliberately be ignored by the political left as well.

More than one commentator has expressed the fear that we are moving inexorably toward what could become a civil war. I fear they may be right It will not be one of organized governmental armies meeting on the field of combat but one of armed militia units striking at each other's supporters and infrastructure. If that happens then the economy will slowly grind to a halt and transportation networks will all but cease to function. Look at Venezuela today. Look at the chaos in Calais France as the thousands of violent Muslims there were blocked from crossing over to the UK and they started attacking commercial trucking to steal anything and everything they could. Now multiply that by a hundred fold as food stops being shipped into inner city neighborhoods and the suburbs begin to find they can't count on the police to protect them and start controlling access to their own areas themselves.

These violent left fascist so-called social justice warriors had best think. Those up to now peaceful suburbanites are far better armed and experienced with weapons than any bunch of college brats and urban drug gangs combined. In fact those drug gangs will kill anyone who gets in their way. They will have no solidarity with BLM or the SJWs expect as to how they can exploit them for their own ends. Just look at drug cartels in Mexico.

But then neither the likes of Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton or Al Sharpton will take responsibility or suffer the repercussions. They will all be hiding g behind high walls and armed private security. It's the rest of us who will have to suffer and many unfortunately, die.

It All Grows More Than A Bit Tedious And Predictable. But It Remains Dangerous For The President.

Having been both sorely disappointed and newly outraged that ex-Director Comey didn't drag Donald Trump's bleeding corpse into the Senate hearing room, the left is now embarked on pursuing even the most absurd of notions as if to try and prove him guilty of something by either ignoring recent example or crude simplistic analogy to a 400 year old fictional play. I kid you not.

I've been through the the desert on a source with no name!
The flesh of the Democrats may be rotted away but the bones
remain alive and deadly like some take of Odysseus.
News was released today that the Attorneys General of both Maryland and the District of Columbia are filing suit claiming that Donald Trump's businesses receiving money under legally executed contracts from foreign entities constituted a "conflict of interest" that they of course want the courts to interpret for them as an impeachable offense.

Never mind of course the millions if not billions of dollars the Clintons pocketed from everyone from the poor storm ravaged citizens of Haiti, to Kremlin linked Russian banks, to every corrupt and xenophobic Muslim Potentate between the Pillars of Hercules to Straits of Oman. Nope, no collusion or influence peddling involved there. "Move along folks there's nothing to see here."

The latest desperation play is of course a real play being put on for the public in New York City, casting President Trump as Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar". I have not seen it and I don't need to look for it on YouTube to confidently predict that the assassination scene is unduly graphic beyond anything that could be ascribed to the Bard's metaphor and that Mark Antony's "I come to bury Caesar not to praise him" speech will either be absent or distorted beyond any recognition. With CNN praising it as "A masterpiece" you know it's complete garbage. Those idiots haven't got anything right in the last two years. They couldn't figure out two plus two equals four if you counted it out for them on their own fingers. What next? "MacBeth" with Kelly Anne and Ivanka as two of the three witches and Hillary as he ghost of murdered King Duncan?

That brings us to the "never Trump" neocon pretenders over at "The Weekly Standard". Their latest line of presumptuous assault is to serve up the goings on inside the White House as President Trump vs. the Trump Administration along with a side a side dish of "Many insiders prefer Pence."

All of these dispicable creatures would be giddy as school girls after getting laid for the first time if they could actually find some albatross to hang around the President's neck. Short of that and in the meantime they will be satisfied with creating phony controversy after phony controversy. Anything and everything to manufacture salacious headlines and to try and distract the President from the pursuit of his agenda.

Traitors are real.  They think of no one but themselves
and they have been around since the dawn of man.

If I could give the President some advice it would be for him to be wary of his advisers, especially anyone who hasn't been with him since well before the Republican convention. As his enemies become more desperate and frustrated with their impotence they will not be beyond finding an insider to manufacture evidence, entrap him with a secretly recorded conversation and even be prepared to take the fall of a prison sentence in exchange for a large enough bribe into an untraceable off shore account. They are even capable of entrapment and blackmail to force the creation of an unwilling but weak-minded Quisling. There is no Machiavellian plot that they will not consider. These are not redeemable souls we are dealing with. The President might even be better off dealing with the devil himself. At least he would know who he is right up front.

He's there already​. I dare say even more than one.
You can bet they are discussing where, when and how
they are going to serve the President up for dinner.
To drain the swamp he should be prepared to start
inside the gates of the White House.



Purchasing Our Own Demise.

Sometimes I would like to say screw the internet. Yes it's great for communication with people far away and commerce for finding those rare items or those thing only available from a vendor hundreds or even thousands of miles away. But it's not just killing the small local merchants who depend on walk in traffic, it's isolating us from our immediate neighborhoods and businesses.

I can't be the only one who wants to pick up and feel and examine an item before I buy it. Plus I like the ability and satisfaction of not only going to a store and getting what I want today but also of building relationships with small vendors with whom I share an interest.

For example over the last couple of years every single hobby shop in my city has closed its doors. Sure there are still places like Michael's and Hobby Lobby that are glorified big box stores that carry either a very limited selection or none of those particular items you're​ looking for because there is no volume or limited demand so they don't meet their precious dollars of return per square foot of space requirements. They have no interest in getting to know their customers. Their attitude is buy what we offer at price we ask or get lost.

Looking for some specialty items and having an immediate need I was forced to go to a shop some twenty miles away and in a different State. When I got there the first thing I did was congratulate The owner on having the only traditional hobby shop left any where around the area. He replied, "Thank you, but to be completely honest with you we're barely hanging on." I could see the sadness and despair in his eyes as we discussed the plight of the small business owner.

The small niche markets are being, have been, all but destroyed, along with the true diversity of interests that make up communities large and small. So the next time you need something that doesn't have to be purchased from across the country and via the Internet seek out your local specialty vendors. Get to know them and let them get to know you. It's good for your community and the human spirit. Keep your money circulating locally as much as possible.

After all just how much more of your hard earned money does Jeff Bezos need? At this point he is no longer building commerce and sure ad hell isn't building communities. His buying influence and power over people. He already owns the Washington Post and it's affiliated news outlets whose despicable opinions and bogus journalism I needn't elucidate here. Now he is seeking to take his billions and create a bank where he will use the fractional reserve process to suck even more wealth, power and the human spirit out of the economy and the American people.

Fuck Bezos and the fascist corporatists like him. True diversity is within communities, their varied economic interests and social and political interactions and opinions and should not have anything to do with the color of their skin or what God they pray to or who they sleep with.

Yes we need banks and a central government capable of defending the nation and our individual rights. But not when those banks either own the processes of economic interaction at even the smallest level and the politicians that operate the levers of governmental power.

Both are a betrayal of what " We The People" means and why the founders put it large bold letters in the Preamble to the Constitution. It is the very concept the corporatists and the politicians they own, be they call themselves Democrats or neocon Republicans, want to destroy first and foremost. Think otherwise at your own peril.

Wasting Time On Twitter Wars When Real War is Upon Us.

While a Twitter war between President Trump and the mayor of London serves no good purpose for either the UK or the US, Sadiq Kahn needs to remember his place. He might be the mayor of a European capital, that status in relation to the Presidency of the United States is still pretty lowly. As far as his saying that our President's State visit should be cancelled he ought to just shut his goat munching mouth. Mayor's don't set State policy or conduct foreign relations.

Does this rug sucking piece of shit really think anyone has forgotten that it was he who has said both that terrorist attacks are "Just a part of living in big cities..." and that this latest slaughter was "no reason to be concerned."

 As far as I'm concerned this piece of human excrement makes Neville Chamberlain's "Peace in our time." statement look like pure genius. Sadiq's peace is spelled piece, as in pieces of Londoners scattered around on the streets. If it had been up to me my Twitter response to him would not have been so polite as to say he was "making up pathetic excuses." I would have sent a private message to PM May asking "Why haven't the heads of Scotland Yard and MI5 been fired for shear incompetence in not arrested for negligent homicide?" I'd further ask "Why hasn't Kahn been charged with aiding and abetting a criminal conspiracy?"

The UK has declared it's independence from the European mainland so now they had better realize that Islam has long since declared war on Britain and they damn well better start fighting back with something approaching the earnestness their grandfather's had in fighting against the Nazis or within a decade if not less there won't be any Britain left except in the history books.

The British at prayer in the midst of the destruction 
of the Blitzkrieg. Where is that British fortitude
today?  We all need to hope and pray they can
find it again, for all our sakes.
Do our President and the American people really want us to be in a position analogous to that of Britain in the dark days of 1940 and '41? Dodging the almost nightly bombing raids and praying that the fascists didn't come storming across the Channel the next day?

We saved the Brits' asses twice before when the threat of destruction was still on the other side of the English Channel. Unfortunately it seams that now, with the fascist murders in their midst, many Brits don't even have the courage to fight for their own survival.

When I read the story of the people lying on the floor of that restaurant all but waiting to be slaughtered, where one individual was video recording what may have been their last moments on Earth and another man shouted out "Fuck these Muslim scum!" and he then came under immediate rebuke for swearing at these heinous murders my heart sank. It sank even farther as I read of Tweets supporting the man who had rebuked him, saying how he had "retained his dignity" by doing so.

How in the world can anyone think that there is dignity in cowering in oh so polite fear when facing getting your throat cut or you head cut off by demented vicious murderers who want to kill you for killings sake? Why can't these people understand that the only dignity in such as case is in standing up and fighting back even in the face of certain death? Just what the hell is wrong with a government that tells its own people that the best response to these attacks is "Run, hide and call."?

The only sound I hear coming from across the pond is that of their own "Greatest Generation" groaning and turning over in their graves. I can only imagine how betrayed those that still survive must feel.

The ass lifters seem to be the only ones praying in
the UK and they sure as hell aren't praying for
the salvation of what's left of a once great people.
Just what combination of perfidious self-deception and wanton complacency is it that drives so many people to not see that this is clash of civilizations not seen since the Gates of Vienna 335 years ago. Just what will it take for these people to see that as far as the Islamists are concerned the current invasion of the West is but a continuation of that same conflict and that their goal have not changed at all?

I know that for far too many Christianity is now somehow passé. But as it stands they had better start praying to our forgotten and neglected Father because he may be all that remains standing between them and their destruction AND damnation. Their government and politicians sure don't seem  a to be. They may not have the moral or intellectual fortitude to pray for their own survival but I won't let that stop me from praying for them. I can only hope that that my prayers do some good and that a merciful God can open their eyes to what terrible fate may await them both in this world and the next.

Right On Cue.

Faced with unfavorable reactions from across the political and social spectrum, Kathy Griffin issued the standard non-apology apology and then fell back to the tried and true leftist tactic, playing the victim card.

Like all self-righteous, self-important leftists, Griffin doesn't think the old tried and true axiom that "actions have consequences" should apply to her. Similarly she not bright enough to think there are such things as unintended consequences.

So today we were treated to a performance and don't kid yourself this was nothing but a performance. On could argue that crocodile tears, self pity and blaming everyone but yourself we're raised to an art form at Griffin's press conference but we've seen it all before. In fact Hillary has had this particular show on the road since last November. Nobody with any common sense is buying it from Hillary and were sure not going to buy from a nobody like Kathy Griffin.

So Kathy, I hope you enjoy your long, well deserved and self-created oblivion. Just be prepared for all those high profile lawyers to desert you when the money runs out. I doubt you have the money or the pull to fight off the Trump family lawyers once they set their sites on you.

A Reasonable Reaction.

It seems that President Duterte of the Philippines is a practical, if hard and profane man and Democrats are the Sam old emotional cripples who are hell bent on ignoring  realities no matter how ugly.

After a recent speech regarding his having declared martial law in southern Mindanao to fight the ongoing ISIS insurgency one would be Democrat inheritor by the name of Chelsea Clinton took exception to his saying that he would take personal responsibility for any misdeeds they might commit in what has essentially become a war zone.

When Chelsea reacted with the usual feminist, women's rights crap Duterte quickly responded by asking her where was her reaction when her father was "fucking Monica Lewinsky in the White House?"

As is to be expected of cowards Chelsea quickly ran away and the left is condemning Duterte as an "dangerous extremist". Nevermind the continued and increasing frequency, violence and depravity of the Islamic assault on Western Civilization, their tune never changes.

Unless and until these political elites find themselves directly suffering the consequences of their perfidious political correctness and appeasement they will continue to sell their souls for the hope of political power over the rest of us. They will continue to hide behind their gated walls and security details. Suffering and death is for us little people not the self important political and social elites.

Apparently President Duterte is not going to wait for ISIS to spread their violence further and is going to treat the insurgency for what it is, a war directed at the nation and people of the Philippines. The horrors of the fascist Japanese occupation is still within the living memory of many Philippinos. Why would they want to risk repeating that  horror story? I for one say good for him. No war has ever been won by talking to the enemy or appeasing them for cynical and partisan political gain.

As long as Europe's and our own political hacks, and that term is being gracious, continue down the path of appeasing the Islamic fascists they will only grow bolder and more barbaric. At our very peril these morons would have us forget that is the very definition of terrorism.

Connecting The Dots..

As my readers know I don't often post links to other writers work. The appointment of a special prosecutor​ is too important and Robert Gore has produced a piece that needs to be as widely read as possible. For the Democrats they had best be careful what they wish for. The murder of Seth Rich may well be the explanation for Hillary's email to Donna Brazil about them all being hanged. Please read it and pass it on.

On Second Thought...

I recently post that I was going to start doing a daily or so running commentary on headlines as they occur. On second thought or thoughts, I have shelved this idea. At least or now.

Quite frankly the behavior of the left and their media front operations to assault President Trump have become both predictable and boring. Not that your typical leftist is in possession of much in the way of either critical thinking skills or a sense of irony. (Sadly this applies to many who think of themselves as conservative as well.)

I certainly haven't lost any of my enthusiasm for our President but I am becoming more and more convinced that the corruption of Washington DC is beyond being drained by any conventional means.

The corruption is simply to entrenched within the bureaucracies and the mental thought process of the vast majority of both the District's inhabitants, the establishments of both parties and indeed far, far to many Americans in general. I saw one comment that pretty much summed up my frustration; "I didn't vote for Ivanka or her husband."

Presidents are just to surrounded by courtiers with their own agendas and motives and dependent on these bureaucracies that are more concerned with keeping money flowing into their coffers than the direction or implementation of policy.

As much as I might hope that this light may be dawning in the President's head, I have seriously doubt there is much he can really do about it. Not with his daughter and son-in-law in his ear every day. Like it or not these forces are making JFK's prophecy come true; "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable."

That leaves us with one alternative. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst. Stock up on God, gold, guns and grub. In the meantime, engage the enemy in the alternative media and be prepared to defend yourself from them in the physical realm as well. Berkeley was just the beginning. I fear that what's coming will be worse, much worse.

Korea, Asia's Great Cultural And Political Conundrum

North Korea and its petty, murderous, emotionally stunted and gravitationally challenged tyrant has been busy of late playing the old family game. Threatening everyone around in hopes of securing tribute in the form of free food from the West and cut rate oil and coal from China to keep the neighborhood bully from acting even crazier.

Unfortunately this third generation egomaniacal fool is not content with digging tunnels under the DMZ, blasting propaganda over loudspeakers, assassinating troublesome relatives or executing military officers with anti-aircraft artillery.

He has chosen instead escalate into the madness of combining a total absence of morality with nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles thinking the world will simply respond with more tribute.

Adding to the general nervousness is the exchange of technology between North Korea and the some only marginally less insane Islamist regimes.

Beyond the cynicism of Hillary Clinton telling Goldman Sachs that "We don't want to see a unified Korea" because she and her ilk profit from the status quo of human suffering and political instability, lays a truth that neither China and Russia nor the US, South Korea and Japan want or need the cost that would be associated with bringing 25 million starving and brainwashed souls into the 21st century. It would prove to be a multi generational task that would make German re-unification and the movement of central Europe from nearly half a century of Soviet (Russian) occupation and back into Western society, look like child's play.

After the bombings of Japan, Emperor Hirohito realized that the importance of the preservation of Japan's thousand year old culture outweighed her xenophobic sense of racial superiority which had clearly set them onto a path of destruction.

A war in North Korea would contain no such recognition of inevitability or desire for cultural preservation as Hirohito found. It would be more Hitlerian in that Kim would see his people as not deserving survival beyond his own. Inspite of the 13 years of Nazism the German people still had as sense of their past cultural achievements and Western Civilization in general.

After over 70 years of the Kim's own brand of fascism, advertised as communism, I suspect the saturation of propaganda and the desire for basic human survival has all but extinguished any real psycological links to their more distant history and cultural structures. The sudden exposure to a modern society that doesn't want to starve, imprison, murder or enslave them, could well produce not just a cognitive dissonance but mass insanity that could manifest as a very difficult guerrilla war and or segments of the military and population fleeing into the mountains as occured with Japanese soldiers who refused to surrender or even believe that Japan had been or could be defeated.

What then is the West to do with such a deranged, nuclear armed fascist regime with a combined military force of 1.9 million? Given the established facts that they can and have secretly tunneled under the DMZ, they already have produced nuclear bombs, however crude compared to modern designs, and that Kim is just plain bat shit crazy, can the western powers, really wait for the overt act before striking?

At first glance it would seen to be incumbent upon the Chinese to rein in if not remove Kim and his regime. After all it is they who have propped up North Korea as a cat's paw against the West for decades. They certainly don't want to see any expansion of their existing refugee problem along the Yalu river and are openly addressing it with large troop deployments. On the other hand having South Korea, Japan and the US handle the problem and having South Korean troops across the Y'all might be an acceptable price to pay to see a major economic competitor burdened with chaos and a vast economic drain.

Should Kim go completely paranoid nutso and deploy his nukes or his Special Ops teams to use dirty bombs, things could spin out of control very quickly and the Chinese could be faced with both refugees and nuclear waste clouds coming across both the Yalu river and the Yellow Sea.

If someone can come up with a truly viable solution to this mess I'll be glad to hear it. It may come to a secret agreement between Washington and Beijing to J St go ahead and decapitate the North Korean regime as quickly and decisively as possible. I doubt it can be done without any collateral damage. But nuclear blackmail must be taken seriously and appeasing tyrants never works out for the better.


Round Three.

Round three of the Battle of Berkely will commence sometime on Thursday whether Ann Coulter shows up or not. In reality the ball is in the police's court after they were roundly criticized for allowing it to get out of hand last time.

They apparently hoped the leftist thugs would prevail in the last round and they were the ones who gut the worst of it by far. The cops should adopt a strict policy of "No masks, no hoodies, no weapons" and enforce it on both sides. Then we can get to watch these violent leftists turn on the cops with predictable consequences.

Got to find somebody carrying a live feed from an Oakland TV station in the morning. Should make for an interesting show.

The Ghost Has Been On A Brief Vacation.

In the interim the world and its insanity goes on. Sometimes it gets harder and harder to care. A symptom of getting older I guess.

Join the North Korean Army
or slowly starve to death.
Korea: Yawn. Big deal. So what. Yes the little fat boy is a menace and nobody wants to see NK armed with nukes and the missiles to deliver them. Somehow though I don't think either China, South Korea or Japan or the US want to take on the burden and costs of trying to assimilate millions of starving and brain washed people into civilized society. It would require a multi-generational effort and the rest of the world is far to enmeshed in their own pending crises.

The abundance of Socialism.
Venezuela: The inevitable end to stupid people being suckered by greedy so-called socialists more than a willing to take them for every centavo they have. And then the money... and the food runs out. See Cuba.

Syria, destruction and death
for 3500 years. This is just
the latest spasm.
Syria: Yawn again. The place has been the crossroads of wars for 3500 years. Really why should we care now? Just so long as the mess eggs confined to Syria and northern Iraq I say let them kill each other. If we want to join in it should be confined to obliterating the nastier elements but strictly from the air and then if we're are going to do it, do it relentlessly and quit boo hooing about civilian casualties and damaged Mosques. It's a war for cripes sake.

Even the blind can see, but not
European leftist politicians.
Europe: The EU is disintegrating at an increasing rate. Good. Maybe if they do the individual nations will realize they are on their own and they had better take me care of the Islamic invasion in short order. Call Hungary or Poland they do seem to understand the reality. Kill them, drive them out or convert them to Christianity or atheism. What ever it takes. Islam is a social and mental disease. Where ever it exists it only thrives on massive infusions of Western cash and technology. Better it should die.

Just a hate crime? BS.
An Islamic crime as well.
They are not mutually exclusive.
And then there is the good old USA: Time for Americans as well to wake up to this Islamic poison.  We have made it worse by allowing it to thrive in our prisons where it mutates and combines with black racism and illegitimcy to create an even more hateful deadly virus that manifests itself in these so called "random acts of violence" as just occured in Fresno California. Random my ass! This is Islam at work. First they kill their religious and racial enemies then they go after whatever sect they disagree with.

Tomorrow: More insanity to come, I'm sure.

Poor Susan!

Susan Rice made a conscious decision to lay down with dogs and now all those fleas she got are bitting more than just her ass. The latest revelation is that she requested "detailed spreadsheets" on communication intercepts involving members of the Trump campaign team. There is nor was there any evidence of any wrong doing on their part or that of those Russians they happen to have been talking to.

The most important questions that must be answered are; who ordered the unmasking of US citizens, why did it continue after they showed no evidence of wrong doing, and who exactly did this information get distributed to?

As mentioned previously Obama seems to be in hiding. If Hillary, Podesta or anyone on her campaign were recipients then there are grounds for criminal charges. Not if, but when Rice gets subpoenaed to testify before Congress will she 1, flee the jurisdiction, 2, take the Fifth or 3, suffer some "unforseen" accident" or sudden despondency leading to "suicide"?

If she is smart she will somehow get the message out that she wants immunity and witness protection in a cave somewhere in the Canadian Rockies. She best figure out real quick that she is a highly expendable cog in the DC political machine. There are those who won't hesitate to solve their problems with her head.

The Plot Thickens. Rev. 1

Just as President Trump predicted, the latest revelations are showing that Obama's National Security Advisor and chief bought and paid for lying sack of shit, Susan Rice was indeed requesting, examining and disseminating Russian security intercepts and specifically asking for the revelation of the redacted names of members of Trump's campaign and transition teams. This of course follows her doing a Sgt. Shultz impression less than two weeks ago saying, "I know nothing about any unmasking" about these very same intercepts.

Given that Susan Rice is a proven liar and Obama flack, were she called to testify before Congress or perhaps at a trial, any lawyer worth his salt would ask; "Ms. Rice, were you lying then or are you lying now?" She would, I have no doubt, try to plead the 5th faster than shit through a goose.

I can only imagine the seething rage at Bloomberg and the New York Times, both of whom had the story and we're deliberately sitting on it to both protect Obama and prevent Trump from being vindicated. Mike Cernovich of the Danger and Play website, who broke the story, has further revealed that his sources were not a leakers at CIA or NSA but within the IT departments of both of these so-called news organizations. He has also said that he has more information yet to be revealed.

The calls for Rice to be hauled before Congress have already started. Little wonder then why Obama has all but gone into hiding. Perhaps Cernovich has evidence directly connecting Obama, Valerie Jarrett or Hillary. Perhaps Congress will force immunity down Rice's throat and tell her to spill the beans or face a long stretch for contempt and obstruction. Hillary may yet decide that she was better off lurking in the woods around Chappaqua. I suspect the fun is just beginning!

Daily Comments for Tuesday March 28th.

1. A Hollywood California middle school is going to face mandated budget cuts because it has "Too many white students". So does this mean we are going to see highrise public housing being built in the posh Hollywood hills? Don't hold your breath. These people are more interested in posturing about integration than actually doing it. After all this is a public school so the mandate doesn't effect any of the "really important" people who send their kids to private schools so as to avoid having to deal with the poor white trash and coloreds of various shades.

2. Congresswoman(?) Maxine Waters openly questions the patriotism of Trump supporters on the House floor. So what? I suspect at least 75% of her colleagues, both Republicanswant Democrats, have been questioning both her sanity and intelligence since the day she first got elected. If wrinkled old Maxine is now the paragon of virtue in the Democrat party they are in worse shape than anyone can imagine.

3. Los Angeles, Chicago and NY City are going to defy ICE and remain sanctuary cities and even vowing to try and block Immigration officers from doing their jobs. Oh goodie! Does this mean we're going to get some George Wallace moments with Commie DeBlasio in New York or the dancing faggot Emanuel in Chicago trying to block the door when ICE comes to arrest another batch of high school bathroom rapists? To bad given the ways of urban politics it would get them even more votes. Yet theyJust can't figure out why people (read white people who have jobs and pay taxes) are fleeing places like Chicago as fast as they can. "Chicago the new Detroit!" could become their new tourism pitch line. Where is Marion Berry when you need him?

4. Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks (R) Huntsville, has filed a one sentence bill to repeal Obamacare. One clear, simple​, articulate sentence. That's all it takes really. No wonder his fellow Congressmen don't understand it and have so far refused to sign a discharge petition to get it out of committee. Any legislation not so complicated that you need a raft of K Street lawyers to under stand it doesn't stand a chance. And they wonder why we hold them all in such utter contempt.

Time For A New Feature Here at The Ghost.

It's not that there aren't plenty of things I could be writing longer comments on but it's springtime and the gardens and baseball games are calling me. So in the mean time I'm just going to try and put up a daily commentary column consisting of one of. Or two lines about some of the headlines I come across on Drudge and other sources. Some will have links to the stories others won't depending on the level of absurdity that has become the norm in these beleaguering times.

The Next Wave of Immigration.

I sincerely hope someone in the Trump administration who is working on immigration policy is preparing for what could quickly become the next wave of immigrants fleeing oppression. This time however they won't be coming Latin America or the Middle East and they won't be brown or black. And they won't be coming here looking to become welfare parasites.

Danie Theron, Dutch Boer War Memorial.
These people don't give up easily.
What they will be is industrious, hard working and prosperous (at least for now) South African whites who may soon be faced with the outright theft of their property and lively hoods by the ruling communist party, the ANC.

Ever since the Nelson Mandela's ANC seized power through murder, intimidation and United Nations do gooderism, South Africa has been slowly descending into becoming just another African third world shit hole. This path has quite predictably seen as much or more poverty and repression then ever existed under the Apartheid governments. The one nation in all of Africa that has abundant natural resources and a productive economy seems determined to emulate the disaster of neighboring Zimbabwe on a massive scale.

Mugabe is the face of black African
corruption and murderous violence.
Once the literal breadbasket of Africa as Rhodesia, Zimbabwe is now the poster child for corruption, hyperinflation poverty and violence. Robert Mugabe has ruled with an iron fist from day one, brooks no opposition, and shows no intention of leaving office other than in a horizontal position.

What were once prosperous white owned and operated farms have been seized through open murder, while the world turned its back. Those "redistributed" lands now either lay fallow or are nothing more than subsistence farms.

Harare's slums can match anywhere in Africa
for their pestilence disease and poverty.
The era of surplus production is but a faded memory. While Mugabe and his friends remain fat in Harare by leaching off huge percentages of the foreign aid that comes in, most of the rest of the country barely survives.

And now South Africa, facing accelerating decline brought about by the corruption and incompetence inherent in any communist regime, seeks to follow Mugabe's path of destruction by announcing that they want to change the national Constitution so as to allow the seizure of white owned property "without compensation".

Jacob Zuma, South Africa's would be Mugabe.
His trail of corruption is long and wide.
He's seen here teaching Obama some of his
diplomatic skills in relating to the opposition.
The problem obstructing them is not just the Constitution but that unlike Rhodesia, where whites were only 2% of a much smaller population, whites in South Africa are still over 10% of the population, are well armed and trained.

Many have been preparing for this eventuality since 1994 and have announced that they have no intention of going down without a fight. While no one could possible predict what the final outcome of such a conflict would be, what is predictable is that like all civil wars, especially race wars, it would be horribly violent and bloody.

Faced with such horror many white South Africans will choose to flee. The US, Canada, Holland, Australia and New Zealand will be the most logical destinations. (While many South Africans of English descent left both before and after the Communist takeover the Dutch largely remained.)

Anything the Israelis can do we can do better.
If the US were to welcome those fleeing South Africa with the same sort of "feet dry" policy extended to those fleeing Castro's Cuba it could only add to our prosperity.

Better yet welcome in two or three South African whites for every illegal Mexican expelled. With lots of farmers and engineers among their numbers, I'd bet they would gladly accept jobs helping to build the wall along our southern border.

Ever since the "decolonization" of Africa in the post World War Two era the sub-Saharan world has proven itself to be all but incapable of self-government. Corruption, dictatorships and civil and tribal wars are the dominant socio-economic constructs. In short Africa has returned to what it was before the Europeans arrived.

It would no doubt be a tragic circumstance should this also happen to South Africa but it may be an inevitability. We might be foolish not to take advantage of it in terms of immigration policy.

Blood In The Water?

Time to shitcan the Alexa and that Smart TV.


The recent headline on Drudge report stated that "Democrats Smell Blood In The Water". At the rate the story seems to be developing however it would that a Las Vegas juggler to keep up with all the accusations and denials flying back and forth. Adding in the various Democrats inability to keep up with their own activities and lies and you get a near full blown vaudeville act.

It's begining to would all to much like an old Ella Fitzgerald son, "First you say you will and then you won't, then you say you do and then you don't!" I've already lost count of the number of leaving Democrats that said they never met with the Russian Ambassador only to be shown up as liars the very next day by release of video or still photos. First there was a FISA court application then there wasn't, then there was then there wasn't. Then the valid Nancy Pelosi said "We don't do that." But then apparently they do if you happen to work for FOX News or the AP and you publish a story that displeases the great Master Unicorn.

It wasn't enough that the whole lot of them and their allied RINO pals were doing a bad remake of "The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming"' just this morning WikiLeaks reveals that the CIA has created its own NSA like cyber spying operation based on purloined RUSSIAN software that can be used to make any discovered hack look like it came from a nowhere other than its actual source. It was further revealed that the CIA had hacked into Apple and Android systems to be able turn turn on the microphones and cameras without the owners knowledge. The same tech can also hack your smart TV and listen in on your home. All while making it look like it was the Russians or Chinese or whoever they want did it.

"Warrants, we don't need no stinking warrants! We're the CIA! We don't even have to tell Congress what we want all those billions of dollars for." Nevermind of course that existing Federal law allegedly prohibits the CIA from conducting operations on US soil.

If the President were to as me he shouldn't be closing down Gitmo but expanding it and filling its cells with soon to be ex-CIA and ex-NSA employees. If someone were asked to define what "domestic terrorism" is, this type of activity sure seems to fit the bill.

At this rate there is indeed going to be blood in the water, and it's not going to be President Trump's.

An Ugly Parallel.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." I won't be the first or the last to make a comparison between the decline of America and the decline and fall of Rome.
That said we are entering into new and extremely dangerous phase of politics.

Never before in American history has an outgoing administration sought to use the institutions of government to harass discredit and disrupt the incoming one. Seeking to make of themselves a Praetorian Guard that creates and implimentation policy as it sees fit, the will of the voters and the long established constitutional procedures be damned.

This is indeed potentially the most dangerous crisis we have faced since the Civil War. We as a people have to ask ourselves do we want to remain a nation of the rule of law, governed by our elected representatives, or will we succumb to the rule of men, governed by faceless bureaucrats who suppose to supplant their own selfish and self serving decisions for the electoral decisions of the people. Will we actively support this coup d'etat or simple acquiesce because we didn't like the outcome of an election? How many of us have actually thought about or realize that going down such a dark and foreboding path may be a one way street with no exits. A street, that if history teaches us anything, leads only to tyranny, repression and death on an industrial scale.

Octavian did not finally secure the destruction of the Roman Republic by his victory over Anthony and Cleopatra but rather by his assassination of Cicero, the last remaining voice of the citizens and Senate of Rome.

President Eisenhower tried to warn us that if not controlled the "military industrial complex" and its tentacles in the intelligence community would eventually swallow us and the nation as we knew it would be no more. Well here we are 57 years hence and his dark predictions don't just stand at our very doorstep, they are bang and kicking demanding to be let in!

Do we stand fast, raise our voices and if necessary our fists and block the door? Or do we, either by some contrived hatred or simple complacency unlock the door and invite them in? We have to understand that as was warned not just a couple of generations ago that "to not choose is to choose" and that  "God will not hold us unaccountable for or choices."

Men who operate in secret do so for no one's benefit but their own. Just as Octavian became Augustus and turned the Roman Senate into a toothless lap dog, our right to choose our leaders will be gone. We well be presented with the choice between nothing more than designated lapdogs, bought and paid for and as spineless as the worms they will be. Then our grandchildren will ask us what it was like to live in a country where men were free, and why we let their freedoms be stolen?

Back Into The Backyard.

February has been uncommonly warm, so there has been no excuse to not get started preparing the garden for planting and getting some exercise in the process. Time to stretch out the winter blahs.  After raking off the leaves and debris the first step was to get out the long handled shovel and turning everything over and getting down to the clay substrate. It took the better part of the day and three seperate sessions.

Things got packed pretty hard over the fall and winter.
The next step was to break everything up, getting out the rocks and sticks and roots. A good deal of screening was needed to get the finer pieces of roots and clumps of weeds separated out.


And I thought that just turning it over was hard work!

Nearly half a wheelbarrow of roots, mostly from
my neighbor's Elm trees.

Time then to spread out a couple of bags of processed cow manure and mix it in thoroughly. Makes for great tomatoes and veggies, not to mention a sore back.



With the garden beds all prepared, I then covered them up and repaired the fence to keep yard waste from accumulating and to keep a couple of big dogs out. Especially one Elwood who has a proven bad habit of stealing tomatoes and squash right off of the vine. 


It being only the end of February it would be foolish
not to expect another round of cold weather.
A hard freeze, freezing rain or snow are all possible.


The right bed is for tomatoes, about four varsities.
With the gardens all prepared I moved on to getting the seed planting beds in the greenhouse prepared as well. These both have heating coils in the bottom and covered with a thin layer of sand and landscaping fabric of its own. If necessary there is also space heater should it be needed.
The left bed is for starting peppers, cucumbers,
beans, squash and Mellon's.


Now all that remains is the waiting for the seeds, that have already been ordered to arrive, so the planting can begin! Here's hoping for a long and healthy growing season and a rich and bountiful harvest.

Straightforward From Here To The Left’s Fascist, Maybe Violent, Endgame

As my readers know I do not usually post verbatim from others people's work. This piece by Kurt Schlichter is any important exception.

Straightforward From Here To The Left's Fascist, Maybe Violent, Endgame.

By Kurt Schlichter

The Democrat Party, its Media serfs, and Social Justice Incorporated are all outraged because we uppity normals are again presuming to rule ourselves, and their agony is delightful. Less delightful is how, in the process of trying to claw their way back into power, they are incinerating the norms and rules that preserve our political order. That stuff Hillary babbled about honoring the legitimacy of elections? Yeah, no. There’s an invisible asterisk only liberals can see that explains that the norms and rules are void when liberals lose.

So, where does this crisis end?

We know where the leftists want it to end, with us silenced and subservient forever, toiling to pay taxes for them to redistribute to their clients as they pick at, poke at and torment us. You look at the things Trump stands for and all of them are about lifting the yoke off of us – cutting taxes, slashing regulations, guaranteeing the Second Amendment, protecting our religious liberty, and safeguarding us from terrorists and illegals. But everything liberals want, everything Hillary ran on, is about clamping the yoke ever tighter around our necks – raising taxes, issuing more regulations, disarming us, limiting our religious freedom, and putting us at risk from terrorists and alien criminals. The whole leftist platform is about putting us down and keeping us down.
Think what they will do if they take power again.

They are certainly not going to risk us ever being able to repeat November’s rejection. California’s decline lays out their tyrannical road map. When the Democrats took power here, they “reformed” the election laws to lock-in their party, co-opted the “nonpartisan” redistricting process, and changed the ballot initiative system to make sure we will never see another unapproved proposition. They ensured there is no way to stop illegal aliens from voting because they want illegal aliens voting.

But even that’s not enough. The state government chose to allow its unofficial catspaws to intimidate and beat dissenters at UC Berkeley. California’s governing class wanted the thugs to prevail; it was a lesson to its opponents. I thought my novel People’s Republic, about post-freedom California, was an action thriller, not the first draft of a future history.

I was wrong.

Do you think Hillary Clinton or whatever aspiring Hugo Chavez they offer up next is going to protect us from violent leftist thugs, or encourage them? Remember how Obama weaponized agencies like the IRS against conservatives? Multiply that by a thousand. Think about the “hate speech” rules used to silence conservatives on campus; imagine them as federal law. That’s coming, just like in Europe – it’s now a crime in France to speak out against abortion. Do you imagine leftists don’t dream of doing that? No, once back in power they will ensure we will never be able to challenge their rule. One man (or woman or other), one vote, one more time, then never again.
How will they do it?

This massive resistance campaign against everything Donald Trump has done and a lot he hasn’t done is one way. The media’s liberal advocacy and tsunami of fake news is another; the press is now just one more partisan political player campaigning to restore the establishment to power. These same liars who fantasize about Trump silencing critics will cheer as the next Democrat commandante does it for real. Remember how they said nothing when Democrats voted to repeal the First Amendment so Congress could control speech during elections?

And they think they’re winning.

Sally Kohn, a CNN commentator perfectly personifies the left’s combination of utter cluelessness and utter certainty in its own moral superiority. Drawing from her bottomless well of stupidity, she recently became infamous for wishcasting about what happens “[s]traight forward from here.” Her scenario starts with Step 1 (“Impeach Trump & Pence”) and ends with Step 6 (“President Hillary”), thanks to a Constitutional process she created herself by blending ignorance, fascism, and wanting.

Sally, however, overlooked Step 2.5, where several dozen million Americans defend the Constitution by taking out their black rifles and saying, “Oh, hell no.” I assume the patriots determined to protect the Union would be confronted, for a short and awkward time, by a pro-coup hipster army locked and loaded with vinyl LPs, participation trophies and unearned self-regard.

There’s no reason not to believe that for these seditious Democrats, the second time will be the charm.

But this amusing idiocy highlights a much more frightening possibility. Dennis Prager has written that America is locked in a Second Civil War already, albeit a cold one. And in light of the absolute rejection by the left of any legitimacy of the grievances, the interests, or the right to participate in governing this country of the tens of millions of red Americans, it’s reasonable to wonder how this can end peacefully. You see read it on social media, you hear it whispered. Are the wounds to our body politic so deep they can’t be healed?

I recently polled people on Twitter about what they thought of the chances of serious violence in the coming four years, and the results from 6,159 people are alarming. “Stop being a nut” got 10%; I was hoping it would get about 95%. “We’ll wise up” and find a way out of this crisis, got 13%. But “50/50 leftists may try violence” got a stunning 41%, while “It’s coming. Gear up” got a terrifying 36%.

So, 77% of the respondents fear serious violence during Trump’s first term. That’s scary, especially since political warfare is not unprecedented in history.

Forget Bleeding Kansas. Just reflect on the low-grade insurgency the American left undertook in the 1970s, with more bloodshed than most people remember, and consider how today the left has significantly more cultural, institutional and media support. The reality is that there is the potential for this to get out of control, way out of control, especially considering the likelihood that leftist violence would be met in kind. That 77% indicates that the red side is, as the left loves to say, “woke” to the threat. And the red people have the guns and training, should things degenerate into serious chaos.

Basically, this country is a powder keg, and leftist fools who do not understand the danger are figuratively standing around it, firing up their bongs.

Now, understand that leftist liars will meet this column with the slander that I (and by extension, you) hope for violence. Skim down the comments and check out the idiots no doubt infesting my Twitter feed – you’ll see plenty of such lies. Actually, this is yet another of my several pleas for sanity and peace (including in my book’s preface). But the left’s favorite tactic is to deny substantive truth in favor of narrative; what I (and you) actually believe is irrelevant. This infuriating tactic makes reasoned discussion and argument impossible anymore, which itself makes violence more likely since it forecloses the primary method of peacefully resolving disagreements. If you can’t argue, if you can’t even speak, there’s only one way to be heard.

The left’s combination of evil and stupidity is the driver straightforward from here. With the grim understanding that they hate us, we need to accept that there may be no easy return to peaceful coexistence. Our goal in electing Donald Trump was to remove the left’s hand from our throat, not to put our hand around blue peoples’ collective windpipe. We don’t care how they live their lives, but leftists care very much how we live ours. Their goal is to lock both hands around our throat and squeeze until we submit to leftist tyranny or die.
It’s hard to see how we compromise. Do we just somewhat submit, or only die a little?
This crisis has to culminate somehow. It could end peacefully, with a return to the old norms and reasoned competition between ideas. But it seems no one is interested in that; instead, one side has to win decisively, and one side has to lose decisively. If so, I say we win and they lose, since I’m not ready to submit or to die.

How about you?
