When facts don't back Fauci up, make up something

Dr. Fauci, improvising facts.  

Whether or not people are obeying the lockdown is irrelevant.  Texas has no lockdown and they are near the bottom of the cases per day rankings.  Further, where are his 'facts' on people not obeying the lockdowns?  He's just making up stuff to cover his ineptitude. Also, what's with "you're talking too fast" and "I can't see that"? Is he taking elderly lessons from the guy who can't walk up the steps of Air Force One properly?  President Trump should have fired him long ago.

NOT. A. SHOCK.

 They are more than half mad.  Bill Whittle on fire as usual.

Democrat power grab is now out in the open

 Supreme Court packing in full effect:


GOP must filibuster this.  MUST.  Joe Manchin must allow the filibuster to continue.  MUST.  Patriots must protest this en masse (assuming you are in a non-lockdown scenario or are not yet fed up with that too).

The time to act is running short, as Democrats have gone all-out power mad.  This power grab would be the end of liberty and the beginning of tyranny on a  massive scale.  Do not doubt this.

April 9, 2021

It's deliberate and you know it!

The Trump era policy of undocumented migrants remaining in Mexico was working, and Mexico was working with the United States on it. The logical thing to do is to keep it in place.  That's not happening.  The policy was reversed.  The only reason it would be reversed is if you wanted it to stop working. The policy change was deliberate. The results were easily predictable by anyone with half a brain. Apparently the does not include Democrats.


And it's not only bad, it's horrific:


Be prepared for a huge battle!

I don't think this is a likelihood, or feasible,  but BE PREPARED to demonstrate in numbers not seen before if this is actually in motion:

As Jordan Peterson said, "What The Hell???"

 This is insane!

Lester Dolt

 Lester Holt is not a bright guy.  Watch Dinesh D'Souza make Lester Holt's argument crumble like a sand castle in a tsunami.

This guy does not understand basic economics

 This is incompetence at the worst possible scale:


To be clear, taxes reduce economic activity.  At best, if 100% reinvested into economic activity, they pervert the most efficient use of funds into less efficient activity.  But it rarely is 'at best'.  Taxes dampen business opportunity by reducing funds available to spend on business activity (e.g. investment, hiring more people, advertising).  Government deciding where money gets spent hides what is not working (e.g. Solyndra).


What's behind this weird development? My Rush Limbaugh style take on it.

Tim Pool posted a video on YouTube yesterday pointing out that swing Democrats are panicking after AOC donated to them. He argues that Democrats know that AOC is toxic to the Democratic party.


The real question about this, as Rush Limbaugh would point out is this: Why is AOC donating to swing state Democrats? There are two possibilities as far as I can see:

(1) She's an establishment Democrat (or has become one) and wants to keep Democrats in power.
(2) she's hoping it will create a backlash, and cause them to lose in 2022 so that she can support more progressive candidates in those districts in 2024 (as Tim points out).
(3) The Democrats are behind it - they are deliberately providing swing state Democrats the chance to disavow AOC and distance themselves, thus disavowing the notion that they are aligned with her and cementing their status as moderates.

Keep in mind the donations were unsolicited by the swing state Democrats and unsanctioned by the Democratic National Congressional Committee. Regardless of AOC's actions, swing district Democrats would be wise to return the money and disavow her.

But here's where I think Tim draws the wrong conclusion.  He thinks she's been shrewd about her moves.  He believes the first possibility listed above is the right one.  I personally don't believe the three options are entirely mutually exclusive.  Any combination or in fact all three could be true.

Here's what I think - the third possibility is definitely true.  Democrats may be weak on policy, they are not weak on politicking.  There is no way the DNCC would not have known about this ahead of time.  They have a congressional whip, they have rules governing members.  They have expectations of their members.  They knew about this and therefore want to afford swing state Democrats the chance to distance themselves from the progressive agenda.  And if possibility #3 is true, then AOC is working with the DNCC, making possibility #1 also true.  And neither of those preclude possibility #2 also being true, or perhaps a possibility #4.

AOC could secretly be working with the DNCC but still hoping to see those Democrats lose so she can make a stronger argument for more progressive candidates on the ballot in 2024.

OR

Possibility #4 - those Democrats are all willing to support whatever agenda if they get re-elected through this chicanery.  They are either secretly progressive (as Rush Limbaugh believed) or so dedicated to the status quo power and want to continue their gravy train ride that they will support whatever is presented, so long as they remain part of the congress. 

Either way it doesn't matter.  This is a stunt, designed with the sole purpose of retaining congressional power for Democrats.  How they use, any in-fighting that comes out of it, is inconsequential.  As long as they win, that's all that matters.

Facebook hates the First Amendment

At the risk of becoming Tim Pool Jr. this evening by reposting him again, I had to share this.  Facebook has decided that the First Amendment does not need protection on their platform as they are determined to eradicate president Trump's voice.

Is YouTube the new CNN with their Rose Colored Glasses?

 YouTube is a disgrace.  They are hiding this guy's massive dislike count.

Edward Snowden - it's worse than we thought.

When Edward Snowden first emerged as a public figure he seemed to me to be anti-American because of the nature of the information he stole and shared.   But the reality is that he is anti-government-corruption.  There is good and bad in what he has done. But exposing what goes on is definitely a plus for society.  And as it turns out, what is going on is worse than we thought.

Shut up and play

I followed the NFL far less than in the past in 2020.  The wokeness combined with COVID-emptied stadiums just made it uninteresting for me. I'm not sure that my interest will recover.  But the political aspect of things is interesting to me. 

Players apparently don't like it. They agreed to it in the last collective bargaining agreement. I feel like shut up and play still applies.  I may not have felt that way prior to the NFL woke era. Injuries are a legitimate concern after all.  But now I am far less sympathetic.  Players and teams adjusted when the season changed from 14 to 16 games.  And the rosters grew too so players can share the workload a little more. And just like I don't need to hear Robert De Niro blabbering about president Trump (shut up and act), I don't much care about what the players or owners have to say.  Shut up and play before you lose everyone completely.

Rules for Patriots - Rule #3: Don't Do It Alone


Continuing the rules for Patriots from Rule #2, you can't get involved alone.  You can't get as much done alone as you can in a group. How often do you hear "I'm just one person, what can I do"?  The secret sauce of progressivism is Joining.  As conservative patriots we are attuned to rugged individualism, and while that is important, it is not the be-all-and-end-all of making things work. Putting a man on the moon was not a one man show. It took teamwork. The U.S. military, still the world's greatest, does not rely on individual superheroes, it relies on teamwork and role players to be so great. Even individual sport Olympic gold medal winners had coaches, medical support and team environments for practicing.  We fall short on teamwork on regular basis.

We can't all be leaders or innovators; 10,000 individual bloggers with 100 readers each do not effectively compete with Vox or CNN. There is strength in numbers.  There is synergy in joining. You cannot contribute ideas shouting into an empty void.  But you can in a church group (for example).  You can't do it alone, so don't do it alone.  And don't fall prey to the "You didn't build that" trap of thinking that joining takes away from or removes individual achievement. 

So join. But where?

There are a few things to consider.  Most people assume getting things done requires politics.  Well, yes.  But politics is not the apex of the pyramid, culture is king.  And while national politics is the apex of the pyramid in politics, you can't start at the top.  So we are back to where. We are back to "What can I do"?

Everyone has two things they have to know about themselves. Figure out the answers to these two questions and you have half the battle won. (1) What issue am I most passionate about?  And (2) what is my area of expertise?  You may for example be most invested in the abortion issue, and you have extensive computer science knowledge.  So why not find a local anti-abortion group and volunteer to help them with your computer skills.

Great teams have specialists and exhibit complimentary skills sets among the various team members.  This is how you can contribute in a non-financial and non-voting-day way.  You CAN make a difference.  Just as people need to specialize, effective organizations specialize too; legal, political, education, media, the list goes on.  While conservatives sit at home and rage at the effectiveness of the GOP, we fail to understand that they should not be experts in all areas, but they should be aligned with experts in areas they need.  Democrats have legal experts, media experts, protest organizations that they partner with very effectively.  We need to stop looking at the GOP as the source of 'marching orders' and rather as more of just a team jersey that a number of aligned organizations and people fall under.  The GOP establishment boogeymen have less power than we accredit them if we decentralize the power structure to various aligned conservative groups.  These closer to grassroots organizations should not be outsiders.  The REpublican party should be beholden to them just as they should be beholden to their membership.  NOT the other way around.  The only way to affect that outcome is to join, en masse.

If you find there is no organization that fits your cultural/political passion.  Then find a few like-minded individuals and found one.  Organize.  Seek members and donations.  Register as a non- profit.  These are the rules, take advantage of them. Build numbers, there is strength in numbers.  

Whether in your own group or one you have joined, leverage the work of others on our side - even if they are not involved in the same interest. Copy what works, enhance what you have seen work elsewhere.  Become a force multiplier by aligning similar groups for various tasks or aligned goals.

Even at that level, know what you need, what you have and what you lack.  Build on your strengths, and don't ignore weaknesses (e.g. poll watchers in 2020, legal experts, sympathetic judges) , if you lack something, align with a potential ally with that skill.  And if there is a legitimate weakness, then fix it.

One last point, there is despite all of their strength, something Democrats, progressives and liberals do very poorly that we must not copy.  Ronald Reagan's 11th commandment was "Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican."  I get that there has been a paradigm shift on that with so many RINOs in the GOP.  But there is still an important truth in it.   Democrats do not know how to keep their allies.  Actually it is a problem of the entire Left.  Once your usefulness is complete they have no compunction about discarding you, often viciously.  They'll turn on you and savage you if you disagree or even if your usefulness is gone. Andrew Cuomo is the latest example (yes, he's scum and deserves it but they have cut ties with a terrible viciousness while using the opportunity to turn it into a #MeToo issue rather than him being responsible for an as yet unascertained number of COVID deaths due to his policies).

The last point; allies; keep 'em.  Don't discard them after you have used them.  That is short term thinking.  It is Democrat thinking.  They use African Americans, women, and other communities to their benefit.  If you cease to become useful, you are discarded.  Once the anti-Trump Lincoln Project was no longer necessary the NYT could not wait to go after the Republican organization for their apparent wrong-doings.

Not only are we unlikely to get as far (since we have fewer allies), we are better than that.  We are the good guys, the white hats (no that is not a racial reference, it's a cowboy movie reference).

Mainstream media pivot begins

 CNN cannot go after president Trump now that he has not been impeached and is not in the White House. They are losing viewers at an alarming (for them) rate.  What can they do? Pivot to the current occupier of the White House (who continues to remain nameless).  The border issue is the beginning.  He's going to become the 'bad guy'.  Well, more likely the unfortunate guy.  "He's a good man, he's in over his head.  He needs to step aside because he cannot manage the country."

The mainstream media, not just CNN, need a storyline.  It can no longer be Trump. It has to be a crisis of confidence in the White House.  "Kamala Harris needs to be president now."  The Nancy Pelosi foray into the 25th amendment talk last year was real.  For the media it is about the story.  For Democrats it's going to continue to be about blaming president Trump.

There will be a rift between Democrats and the media.  Only for a time.  They will coalesce again. But for now, while Democrats stick it to Trump blaming and the media harp on Biden's failures to secure a new storyline, this is an opportunity for Republicans if they are smart enough to seize it.

Rules for Patriots - Rule #2: Get Involved, Stay Involved

 This is part 3 in a series on Rules for Patriots (the introduction can be found here and Rule #1 here).

Rule #2 - Get Involved, Stay Involved

If you are frustrated by government inaction, excessive action,  overreach, malfeasance, corruption or any other sort of abuse of power, the obvious solution is to get involved.  Most conservatives and patriots have historically believed that meant to get out and vote.  Voting is not enough. Clearly.  If it were these issues that vex you would not exist. Yes voting is important but voting should be be the end-product of an informed involvement.

What does informed involvement look like? Pay attention.  As noted in Rule #1, you have to make sure you are educated.  In the case of voting that means you need to know the candidates long before the election; know the candidates during the primaries.  What are their positions?  Are their positions consistent with their personal or voting record? Are their positions plausible? You have to know the consequences of what you are voting for and you have to be able to make others aware of the same.

That applies not only at the federal level.  It applies at the state level and it applies at the local level. They are every bit as important as the federal government.  They impact your life often to a greater or at least a more immediate degree than the federal government.  Every level of government impacts every other level of government.  From assigning voting rules to redistricting to legal recourse.

But as I mentioned, getting involved does not start and end with informed voting. It does not even start and end with government. Political organizations have been a forte of the Left for decades.  They often run amok in society unchecked.  From the ACLU to SIEU to Planned Parenthood to BLM and ANTIFA, the left has armies dedicated to various aspects of societal influence. The right has organizations as well but they are typically smaller, less visible and most often, less effective (with exceptions of course).  These organizations act outside of government (at least theoretically) and as a result are often capable of much more since they do not operate within the confines of the government. They are subject to rules, which is where INFORMED voting comes in and you can influence those rules.

But have you joined the Taxpayers Federation? Have you checked out Judicial Watch?  And if you know about them, and even if you have joined, is that all you have done?  Even sending money to support them (or candidates when it comes to elections), while helpful is still only limited involvement.  Have you volunteered to do work for them?  Have you attended meetings and/or participated?  That's real involvement.  There is strength in numbers and you can do more than just calling a talk show to complain. Complaints are not action.  Money is limited action.  Volunteering is real action.

And it is not a one time thing.  You get involved and you stay involved because if you let up, you immediately go back on defense.

Pick up a digital pamphlet for the patriotic cause of your choice.  See if the organization is doing things you agree with and if so, join, pledge support and go do work. Volunteer what you can.  That is staying involved.

Rules for Patriots - Rule #1: Know your facts

Last week I posted an introduction to Rules for Patriots.  Rule #1 is a few days late but not be choice.  In any case, here it is.

Rule #1: Know Your Facts

This would seem like an obvious rule, but the left doesn't seem to abide by this rule. In fact, a lot of what they, a lot of what they claim flies in the face of facts. And it has worked for them, so why restrict ourselves to reality?  There are a number of reasons why this is important to conservatives, to patriots.

The left controls the media and thus the narrative so any mistake in fact that we make we will be called out and ridiculed and it will be used as proof that we are hayseed hicks with no sense of truth.  We cannot afford to make mistakes. 

Of course that is a secondary reason.  The most important reason is knowledge.  Knowledge matters, knowledge is power.  Learning facts about issues for your own understanding and benefit is important for you, but also so that you can debate and persuade others.  Persuasion when we are a political underdog matters, we need numbers and to get them we need to persuade in an environment where the deck is stacked against us.

But knowing your facts is not limited to political issues.  You need to know your audience, you need to know how to speak to them in a persuasive way, which means you have to talk to them in a way that resonates with them. You can't do that unless you know them and understand what makes them tick.

Once you know the audience, learn the issues that motivate them.  Once you understand those facts you can also learn and anticipate the counter-arguments you will face and prepare to overcome the counter-arguments from your audience or someone trying to debate you or to persuade your audience otherwise.  

But it's also not just knowing about the issues.  Where conservatives often fall short, despite the facts being on our side, is knowing the landscape of the political stage.  In 2020 we just knew president Trump was going to win re-election.  We focused on the political arguments, not the political procedure. We lost track of having lawyers ready to challenge rule changes in various states that served to undermine election integrity, so we were caught flat-footed when we tried to challenge rule changes that we believe were unconstitutional. And we lost.

We did not focus on social media manipulation and we have ended up with shadow-banning conservative viewpoints and seeing that escalate up to outright banning of legitimate political viewpoints.  The Democrats are displaying McCarthyism  on steroids and we see Parler being shut down, we are seeing conservative pundit after conservative pundit being silenced.

We lost the battle by not knowing the rules even as they were being changed on us. We have underutilized friendly judges, legal loopholes, and even something as simple as who our own allies are.  Do you know of any conservative organizations in your own community?  Do you know who on your local council or in your own statehouse is a conservative or a liberal or a phony conservative?  Do you know the rules for elections from local to federal?  

Knowledge matters. It's not the entire battle, but for conservatives it's integral.  And obviously every conservative cannot possibly know everything we need to know, so we need to know who we can rely on as allies, or groups with which we can align. We are not arguing from a position of vocal amplification strength, so every little bit of advantage we can gain, matters. Know your facts.

YouTube deleting dislikes for Democrat

Rules for Patriots - An Introduction

I had planned to do this as a video, and release it yesterday.  Unfortunately the editing was taking way longer than I expected and in order to just get it done, I have reverted to simply writing it out.  Luckily I still have some of the visuals available to make it less drab.


Rules for Patriots. Why do we need rules for Patriots? And who even do we consider Patriots? Do we really need new rules? And why now?

Lets examine each of these questions as a precursor to diving into the actual rules themselves. These rules are intended as a way to change the game.  A game that has been rigged against conservatives, against patriots, against you and I for a very long time.

In recent years, and I am referring to years that even preceded president Trump, there has been a rebirth of patriotism.  A rebirth in the belief that America is a great place. What was commonplace in the 1980s dwindled over time until there was a need to have a renaissance of patriotism with the rise of the Tea Party in 2009.

For many of us that patriotism to American virtues and values has never been in doubt. But in a broader spectrum, it has been slowly draining out of American cultural sensibilities and morality only to be replaced with an inferior brand of sensibilities that betray what America stands means.  It's as if an Overton Window on society, not just government, has been changing the meaning of what America is and means.  And just like a virus, that ersatz vision of America has been spreading, uncontrolled, and uncontained. This culminated in the election of 2020, with a blow to the Make America Great Again movement, the successor to the Tea Party movement.

This creeping betrayal of American values has infected not just people, not just business but even governmental institutions.  Bureaucracies meant to work for the American people have been perverted into serving an oligopoly of a very few, using the institutional advantages it has created for itself to cover your eyes to the truth. An oligarchy of massive private institutions have joined the behemoth to protect their own interests turning the drivers of societal change into a virtually unstoppable behemoth.

In addition progressive socialists have permeated media and education, turning people into sheep; non-thinkers who accept what they are told without critical questioning. It's been alarmingly effective.  Fort those of us invested in "liberty and justice for all" the time to correct the problems is running short.


You may be wondering if "Patriot" means you.  It does.  Waiting for someone else to fix your problems with government and Big Tech and the media is a lot like political welfare.  It's dependency. You need to act, politically to ensure a future for America.

That is, if you: believe in the Constitution.  And you believe in preserving America as a place with potential for all. and you understand that an America that prevents that for anyone, prevents it for all. You also understand that America requires an active, civil defense of the principles that made it a great country or else it and all the liberty it provides will perish. You must likewise understand that the liberty your country affords you also charges you with certain responsibilities. You know that one of the greatest of those responsibilities is to protect those liberties not just for yourself, but for all Americans.

But all of that is just understanding. To be a patriot you must not be afraid to take action, civil action, in order to address threats to liberty and justice for all. That means getting involved politically, socially morally and intellectually.


The obvious question is why not use what's already there since it worked so well. Saul Alinsky wrote Rules for Radicals.  It worked to get progressives into power.  The same radicals who are now in power and either willfully or unknowingly chopping away at the support structure that holds America together.

But if the rules worked for them?  Why not just use their own rules against them?

4 reasons:

(1) The rules are based on the destruction of your enemy.  Their enemy in part is America.  We do not have that same luxury.  Similarly we do not possess the numerical strength to destroy socialism and progressivism. Not now.

(2) That is because we have already ceded so much ground to the socialists.  Consequently we need to convert groups and individuals into allies, not destroy them.  We must grow our numbers. Destruction does not suffice and in a political battle of attrition that destruction would require, we are doomed. This is why the Democrats are locked into the political war of attrition - they are winning.

(3) Time for a recent football analogy.  If you were the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would you try to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs with the Kansas City Chiefs' own playbook?  It's not designed for you, it's designed for them, and they know it better than you ever will. They will know what your next move is before you do. That is a surefire road to defeat.

(4) The Saul Alinsky playbook is one of negative tactics.  Do you want to stoop that low?  Personal destruction? You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar the old saying goes. It's the common sense ideas like that which are lacking in our opposition.  That's what makes them vulnerable.

It's better to never go lower when they go low.  Instead we must offer something positive; hope.  It's what drove victory for Ronald Reagan, for Donald Trump and it even worked for the most successful Democrats like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.  Offer hope. Offering hope means not using a negative playbook.  No, we need our own.


So why now? Take a look at the graphs above. Firstly, electoral college shifts between parties are diminishing.  over time. In most states voters have become locked into a voting pattern.  The opportunities to change minds are diminishing and between president Reagan and president Trump, no Republican has seemed eager to even attempt it. Democrats however never afraid to try, by any means necessary. Take a look at the second graph.  Not only is the voter base becoming locked in, it seems to be turning out more. More voters, more entrenched. That's a recipe for stasus for a long time. Stasus that favors the left. While on the surface it would appear that additional votes for president Trump in both 2016 and 2020 were a good thing, either the Democrats manufactured votes, or their base was so fired up that patriots decided to do something about progressive social and political hegemony, that they turned out to quash your political spirit once and for all. That is anti-democratic action at it's most insidious.


Let's circle back to why we need rules at all.  Can't we just do our thing and it will work itself out?  Frankly that's not a plan.  That's a fairy tale.  We need rules to change the game and we need them now.
What we have done so far has not worked. President trump captured lightning in a bottle in 2016, and nearly again in 2020. But nearly is not enough.  We need to do things better or we are destined to lose elections until America is completely unrecognizable, weak and at the mercy of foreign powers.

What we have done so far is reactive and without forward thinking. You cannot win without a plan.  Interestingly, what we have done so far has been based on conservative principles, particularly rugged individualism.  That's great in capitalism.  It turns out it is terrible in politics. What's needed is a co-operative effort (which neither capitalism nor liberty preclude). That does not mean we need to abandon who we are to incorporate a few guiding principles. These guiding principles, or rules, are meant to be just guidance.  Rugged individuals or organizations will have plenty of room to operate from within that framework, even if they adhere to the rules. 

These rules are tactical in nature, but only because that is the stage we are at as patriots. strategic thinking is not gone, just absent from this immediate discussion. Besides, why would I share a strategy here where it can be dissected by progressives looking for weaknesses?


The rules are going to follow soon.  I will discuss them one at a time.

Now, so I do not get doxed, censored or worse allow me to add a few caveats for any progressive, liberal, socialist or social justice warrior who happens to see this:

-This is not a call to violence.  It is a call to political action. 
-This is not radical. If you believe that someone having a different political view than you is radical, you need to step out of the rainbow sweetheart, and into the real world.
-Further, someone trying to make a political change is not radical unless they are doing so violently. Rioting and looting are violent.  Burning buildings is violent. Protesting and organizing is not violent, even if you disagree with someone politically you do not have the right to curtail their speech. If you want to do that go join the regime in North Korea or Syria or Chad.

Facebook has cancelled Australia

Facebook is not the good guy here. Or anywhere for that matter.  This is not an Australia-only problem.  Facebook is part of the cancel culture problem and frankly if Australians cancel Facebook, hopefully that spreads to other countries.  I am not against American companies having success; I'm all for it in fact.  But Facebook has become a seriously bad actor.

Lots of asteroids - SJWs beware

Yes, this is a little off topic and mostly irrelevant but then again so is Climate Change.  And wouldn't it be great to get woke SJWs to focus on asteroids rather than the Paris Climate Accords?  Instead of that we need a global initiative on climate defense.  Right? Humanity needs to come together to develop a global defense shield, blah, blah, blah.

In any case, there have been an usual amount of large asteroids passing relatively close to earth this month:

Still not over the loss of Rush

I don't think I'll ever be over the loss of Rush.  I was in university when I started listening to Rush Limbaugh and maybe because I was so young then, I always had this notion that Rush would just go on forever. Sadly, greatness dies the same death as mediocrity.  Nothing is eternal - well except for God (as Rush would say, from whom his talent was on loan). He deserves his accolades, and not his slings and arrows.  Here are a few more accolades.

Gone but not forgotten - Rush Limbaugh


Today is a sad day indeed.  Via Breitbart:

Conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh died Wednesday morning at the age of 70 following a battle with lung cancer, his wife Kathryn Limbaugh announced at the beginning of his radio program.

“It is with profound sadness I must share with you directly that our beloved Rush, my wonderful husband, passed away this morning due to complications from lung cancer,” Katheryn announced.

“Rush will forever be the greatest of all time, she added.

Limbaugh, host of The Rush Limbaugh Show for 32 years, had been battling Stage 4 lung cancer since January 2020. Just days after his announcement, Limbaugh was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Trump during the State of the Union. “Rush Limbaugh: Thank you for your decades of tireless devotion to our country,” Trump told the radio host during the address.

Rush Limbaugh was one of my heroes.  While I have always been conservative since I was about 12 years old, Rush Limbaugh made me realize a lot of things since I started listening in 1989. He awoke me to the climate change hoax for example.  He made me think about things, I mean think critically and not just accept 'facts' without thinking what they really mean. He made me realize that there is a narrative behind the news, no matter who provided the news.  He was insightful and entertaining at the same time.

There are lots of potential heirs but there will never be another Rush. He was truly great and his loss will be felt for a long time.

Cuomo's NY nursing home massacre

The left is so convinced there is no more right side Res Publica and they have started turning on their own because to the left, politics is blood sport and the true enemy is anyone who isn't 'me'.  While it is good to watch the left eat itself, it should be a lesson to weak-kneed RINOs like those who voted to impeach Trump for two reasons; (i) it should show you who you are aligned with and how quickly you will be torn to shreds when you are no longer useful to them and (ii) in order for conservatives to fight back against this savage political machine is to harden themselves and do the same, meaning they are coming for you RINOs too.  You have no allies in truth.

Tim Pool savages NY governor Cuomo over killing people in nursing homes over COVID-19.  Yes Cuomo's defense will try to pin this on Trump.  It won't work.  And frankly, it's good to see Cuomo twist in the wind for what he did.

Impeachment is cover

Democrats know the impeachment is not going to happen.  So why do it?  Because it's sucking up all the media attention so they can get a bunch of new regulatory changes and executive orders without any coverage of it.  It's cover. It's sleight of hand. You know that CNN is focused on this and not the failings of the current regime.

Nevertheless, at least anyone paying attention is noticing how badly the latest impeachment effort is going.

Why the far left are fooling themselves, and why conservatives must join them.

 If you are a progressive you have to be ecstatic right now.  You ousted Trump (by fair means or foul is inconsequential), and the mainstream media and social media Big Tech have conservatives on the run, about to be routed perhaps forever. You have a president who is willing to do whatever he told you and doesn't cares about the labor unions who supported him and now have workers getting laid off. Democrats control the house and senate and are trying to kick Republicans out of the house and senate entirely. As exciting as all of that sounds to you, you should be very, very worried. 

Progressives, you are fooling yourself and conservatives, now is the time to join with progressives to stop what all Americans, all Westerners, hell - all people of the world need to be are in danger of becoming.  Unnecessary.

I know that sounds strange but it's true.  I urge you to consider the following, before it gets to late to do anything.  If you are a progressive, conservatives do indeed sound radical and dangerous, but that is only if what you are hearing in the mainstream media is 100% true.  I urge you to consider taking in information from some non-traditional non-mainstream sources and see the news you are missing or are being filtered out of your line of sight. It's not going to harm you or poson your mind to look or listen. You may disagree with these conservatives, but they are not bark-at-the-moon crazy.  They have legitimate concerns that are not being addressed, and in fact it's worse - they are being silenced.


The concern you should have is that you are next.  Think about it.  If you were a dictator and wanted to move to an Orwellian police state, who would you need to silence first?  The gun-toting live free or die conservatives.  How do you silence them?   Make them look crazy and take away their ability to make a difference.  Silence them into submission and make them apologize for that which the do not need to apologize.  Herd them into a persecuted minority.  Once you have accomplished that, then you can do the same with those who are on board with your agenda because their agenda isn't actually your agenda.  They will have been useful puppets up to a point, but after the conservative  resistance is destroyed, the progressive crowd can be turned on itself similarly. Once there is no one left but the elite-supporting low-information proletariat the elite can do anything they want.  ANYTHING.  Their agenda is to achieve self-serving wealth-generating elitist goals. If there is no one left to fight back then they can do anything - lower the minimum wage, offshore all jobs, take away benefits, take away rights - whatever it takes to maximize their own wealth, at everyone's expense.  

These are not the 1%, they are the 0.001%. 

You don't believe me?  You realize that is exactly what Putin has done in Russia in his corruptocracy. He used to be Soviet KGB, now he's a self-serving elite. It's the same thing that exists in China but they are still functioning as a normal-appearing government.  This is what president Trump was railing against.  It's why they fought so hard to destroy him.  That you wanted him destroyed was mere convenience.  

You want to put conservatives in re-education camps?  What happens when it's your turn?  Doesn't that frighten you?  It should, because you are indeed next.  The elites do not want to change America to a more inclusive place, they want it more exclusive.  

Conservatives.  You've been abused by the left as much as by the elites of both parties.  You've been disillusioned by those you thought were on your side within the halls of power from Chief Justice Roberts, to Mitch McConnell to Paul Ryan to Bill Barr, all have let you down.  The truth is you have no allies there.  You cannot gain allies in the mainstream media or Big Tech.  Their goal is to eradicate your resistance to their agenda by negating you as a political force. Everything you try will be stopped sooner or later.  There is but one group that you can align with, if they realize it in time.  Progressives.

Why?  Because the underlying truth is that this  is not about conservatism, liberalism, libertarianism, progressivism or even capitalism or socialism.  It's about those inside making sure that they work together to disenfranchise everyone who can stop them.  The only way to stop them is for EVERYONE on all sides of the political spectrum to but their grudges aside and focus on stopping the elite from fundamentally changing America. They do not want equality of opportunity.  They do not even want equality of outcome unless it is an outcome that maximizes their power and wealth and minimizes everyone else's.  We need allies, and we only need to awaken allies.  That takes incentives not invectives.  That's the only way to stop what's happening.  We need to awaken progressives to what's going on, not antagonize them.

In defense of Jordan Peterson

A news cycle needs to be corrected with respect to Jordan Peterson.  I'm sharing this response from Mikhaila Peterson to do my part to correct a false narrative #FAKENEWS.

Mostly peaceful violence [Or: How you prove the media are lying]

Show this video to low information voters.  They are a bigger reason president Trump lost the election than the cheating (which was a problem, but not big enough to maintain momentum -- because there were too many low information voters).

When I say they are a bigger reason, I am not talking about the media, I am talking about the low information voters. There's far too many of them. We don't need to take out the media to defeat them, we need to take away their credibility with the uninformed.

Low information voters SUCK!!!

How does someone in Australia know more about the truth in America than low information Democrat voters? It's a sad state in America when 70+ million voters (and several million fake voters) voted for a guy who is now a low-information president.

Crowder suing Facebook

With the odds stacked against any sort of success, I still applaud Steven Crowder's move. This is an important exercise and with the Big Tech oligopoly aligned against Reddit users, conservative voters and in general anybody but themselves, this is important.

Wall Street Elite's Manipulation

Wall Street and the political class are all in this together, and against everyone else.  They've stacked the deck against you and I.  Is it over for them?  It's naïve to think they won't try to come up with something else but the question is whether it's too late.

The solution is simple - Ban Twitter

This is not a cancel culture thing. In fact, it should just be called Cancel Cult.  Rather, why would I support a platform publisher (Twitter) that selectively decides who can and cannot use their service, AND, does it so very poorly. This weekend I am going to close my Twitter account.  It's about as useful to me as is a cancelled Parler.  I'd rather wait for Parler to re-emerge than use Twitter.

It's awful:

Gamestop rebellion is because TRUMP. So says CNN.

Gamestop is a classic David and Goliath story.  CNN blames it on Trump.  No, really.  In case you missed it, here's what the Gamestop saga is all about as explained (well) by David Knowles, along with an explanation of what CNN is saying.  

As you watch this, keep in mind, hedge funds managers are very rich typically and they typically work for the super rich.  These are insider elites who don't want anyone but themselves prospering.  They are in it for themselves, and screw the little guy as collateral damage in the process.  So seeing them take a hit is like watching Nancy Pelosi being frog-marched away by the FBI.  In other words, it's great fun.

Hedge fund managers have been known to pick a stock, short sell it and then go trash it on CNBC (or similar outlet) in order to tank the stock price (hurting the company and its workers in the process) in order to cover their short-sell position for a tidy profit.  The guys on Reddit noticed a pattern to this and were  reacting to it.

Michael Knowles explains more:

Thank you Rand Paul for pointing it out.

An "I'm busy, no-title" post

This week has been a busy week for me and I haven't been able to post much at all.  Unfortunately I haven't lost track of the news cycle, which means I'm up to speed on all of the buffoonery of the current president and his cabal in the congress and senate.  This is the beginning of years of stupid decisions.

Not my president I'm more than happy to report. Even my ultra-liberal Prime Minister here in Canada is peeved at the ...you know, the guy.  The guy whose name I will not speak. 

As I continue to be very busy at work, I'm happy to say I still have a job. Unfortunately it means fewer posts for the short term.  And it flies in the face of my goal for the year of trying to post more essay type content.  But I'll try to continue as best I can until time is more permitting than it is right now.

For now, some common sense from Dinesh D'Souza:

Dark Days Indeed


America had a president who did amazing things for the country - record low unemployment in multiple demographics, peace deals between Arab nations and Israel, tax cuts, three Supreme Court appointments, deregulation from crippling rules for small businesses,  and border security just to name a few things.  I have lived through 10 presidents now (11 as of today), and up until president Trump, non held a candle to the great achievements of Ronald Reagan.  Throughout president Trump's administration, I was loathe to compare the two men.  Donald Trump was a great president, and his accomplishments are especially stark in light of the unrelenting hatred from the left - three attempts at impeachment in four years (Russia, Ukraine and this latest one).  Imagine what he could have 

Does he rate ahead of Reagan in my eyes now?  In some areas yes, in others no.  They were the two greatest presidents of my lifetime, I admire both men in different ways and for different reasons.  I don't want to compare them because of that.  It's like picking your favorite child.  Some might be okay doing that, not me.  Nevertheless president Trump deserves our appreciation and he has mine to the fullest extent.  Seeing him leave the White House for the final time is a sorrowful moment.

It's worse than that though. The incoming president has 17 Executive Orders ready to go, most of them likely, undoing the work of the president.  We are headed into dark days for the United States.  There are lockdowns in the Capitol to 'protect' the new president.  The party of the politics of personal destruction, and national destruction has control of the presidency, the congress and the senate.  Big Tech is de-platforming any conservative voice of any substantial size.  News media and Hollywood and educational institutions are predominantly onboard with the coming agenda.  Those who stand in opposition they want to deprogram (i,e. re-educate) or keep from working.

The agenda itself will decimate the energy independence that president trump achieved for the first time in many decades.  It will allow illegal immigration to flourish. It will cripple small business.  It will do what it can to silence opposition voices. Unemployment will rise.  Crime will rise. Political correctness will surge to new levels.  The political process will be further corrupted and the institutions themselves will be plugged with rabid radical liberals bent on repeating the corruption of the Obama administration where the IRS targeted conservative political groups.  COVID lockdowns.

Dark Days indeed.  But do not despair.  Now is the time to go to work against this dark tide. The incoming leader is Not My President (easy for me to say from Canada. Nevertheless his predecessors I thought of as all legitimate, even the ones I did not like).  Let's make him a one term president.  Let's not mention him by name.  And let's go to work.  President Trump's legacy will not be one of racism and corruption as they would have you believe.  It will be one of incredible achievements and the light to a path back to American Greatness. The only way to return to that path is to not expect others to do it for you - a welfare state of politics if you will.   You must do it yourself.  You must think tactically as if you were a Soros-funded liberal progressive and work hard at making things change.  Peacefully, but with firmness and intent.

And now is the time.  Why would president Trump bother to come back in 2024 if you don't make a difference before then.  It was enough of a headache the first time around.  Do you think he wants to come back to more of that, despite his love of country? No. Voting is not enough.  Organize. Work hard.  Not just for president Trump but for your country -- The time is now.

Some final thoughts on today's videos

Brandon Vogt interviews Bishop Robert Barron after his talk with Jordan Peterson to get some of the Bishop's thoughts on what transpired:


I discovered Bishop Robert Barron today, quite by accident.  His videos were interesting and made me reflective, so I thought they were worth sharing.  It was especially true after I saw him talking with several people I admire intellectually.  My hope is that anyone watching them were moved to think about the matters being discussed more deeply as well. 

Jordan Peterson interviews Bishop Robert Barron

Back in 2019 as Jordan Peterson was somewhere earlier on his journey towards belief, interviewed Bishop Robert Barron.

Front Page Friday - An alternative to the deletions on the horizon?

Bill Whittle, Stephen Green and Scott Ott discuss a developing alternative to the Internet's biggest problem - Big Tech Overlordship and selective deletion of opposing voices:

January 14, 2021

Deletion hits self-described centrist Tim Pool

The crackdown on liberty continues, unabated.  Perhaps even accelerated. Facebook is going after Tim Pool.

January 13, 2021

The deletions are growing.

Things are steamrolling ahead. They are getting worse by the day.  Now YouTube is blocking president Trump now.


They want to put prominent Republicans on the No Fly list.
 

Prominent Republicans are being censored on Facebook:


It's hard not to think this is the beginning of the Great Reset. It might not be.  But if it isn't it is a Democrat party and government beaurocracy bent on revenge and convinced they are enabled by 90% of the American public.  As the deletions grow, so does the anger.  Democrats are blindly playing with fire as they enflame suspicion and frustration.

January 11, 2021

2021 -- the year of the delete

I wrote about this earlier today.  Freedom-loving Americans (as well as those in other countries with similar views), are facing an existential crisis.  You are next especially if your name is Candace Owens:

Twitter is a cesspool and Parler is gone. You are next.

Try Gab,  they have their own infrastructure, or are at least working on it.  This coordinated attack on free speech is absolutely horrifying.  Soon, anyone opposing the Big Brother, social justice worldview, will not be able to share their opinion.  This is as anti-American as it gets.


They will try to distract you with talk of reconciliation as they take away your liberties.  


Big Tech, Big Media, and the government are all aligned.  Half of the country is already hypnotized into thinking that this is all a good thing that this is positive progress.  Those are useful idiots.  The rest of the country is systematically being shut out of any opportunity to oppose the agenda, any opportunity to even talk about it.  Disagreement will not be tolerated.

The Great Reset is nigh.

I know that sounds alarmist.  I can see myself typing it into my blog in disbelief.  I'm not a conspiracy nut.  But here's the thing. Evidence.  In addition to Parler, the #WalkAway movement is in the process of being cancelled. There are too many nest steps happening right now to ignore them.

Suppose I am wrong and there is no throwing us all in jail or re-education camps commencing (and no, I don't actually believe it's going that far), what is happening is still a threat to Democracy.  If they can shut down the right, they can shut down the left and they have set themselves up for a future where they can potentially silence everyone.

Chairman Mao would be proud.

I'm not suggesting insurrection.  I'm suggesting you get the word out to anyone who will still listen, and you do it right now.  This takeover and crushing of free speech is an affront to everything for which America stands.  If free speech dies, liberty dies, America dies.  And after that, anyone they want dies too.
