If it seems like the topic of secession is increasingly in the media in recent years, it’s not just your imagination. From “Calexit,” to Brexit, to Catalonia, and to Scottish independence, the topic of breaking up nation-states into smaller pieces has increasingly forced itself into the foreground.
In the United States, the discussion has become muted in the past two years – but has not disappeared – as activists on both left and right have decided to wait and see how the next election turns out. But expect a resurgence of secession talk from the side that loses the presidency, once the race is over. Continue reading
Democracy is vastly overrated!
It’s not like the consensus of a bunch of friends agreeing to see the same movie. Most often, it boils down to a kinder and gentler variety of mob rule, dressed in a coat and tie. The essence of positive values like personal liberty, wealth, opportunity, fraternity, and equality lies not in democracy, but in free minds and free markets where government becomes trivial. Democracy focuses people’s thoughts on politics, not production; on the collective, not on their own lives.
Although democracy is just one way to structure a state, the concept has reached cult status; unassailable as political dogma. It is, as economist Joseph Schumpeter observed, “a surrogate faith for intellectuals deprived of religion.” Most of the founders of America were more concerned with liberty than democracy. Tocqueville saw democracy and liberty as almost polar opposites. Continue reading
Democrats are laying the groundwork for revolution right in front of our eyes.
As if 2020 were not insane enough already, we now have Democrats and their ruling class masters openly talking about staging a coup. You might have missed it, what with the riots, lockdowns and other daily mayhem we’re forced to endure in this, the most wretched year of my lifetime. But it’s happening.
It started with the military brass quietly indicating that the troops should not follow a presidential order. They were bolstered by many former generals – including President Trump’s own first Secretary of Defense – who stated openly what the brass would only hint at. Then, as nationwide riots really got rolling in early June, the sitting Secretary of Defense himself all but publicly told the president not to invoke the Insurrection Act. His implicit message was: “Mr. President, don’t tell us to do that, because we won’t, and you know what happens after that.” Continue reading
“Boot it’s not about beer Missy!”
We, those of us paying attention outside the pablum of the media, hollywood and elites, watch what appears to be a clown car of epic proportions circling the drain. Many of the day to day shenanigans of the democrats are so blatantly head scratching that, I for one, cannot understand how they are allowing them to happen.
The twitter clips, the facebook clips, the blog posts we share are most times cringeworthy. Many of us have seen them so you know what I’m talking about. Continue reading
(A D U L T S O N L Y!)
Jane and Arlene are outside their nursing home, having a drink and a smoke, when it starts to rain. Jane pulls out a condom, cuts off the end, puts it over her cigarette, and continues smoking.
Arlene: What in the hell is that? Continue reading
Calls to abolish the electoral college are all the rage these days, but they aren’t new. One such attempt in 1956 was thwarted with the help of a Democratic senator from Massachusetts — a young John F. Kennedy.
The Senate was debating Senate Joint Resolution 31 on March 20, 1956, a “follow-up to what was originally labeled the Lodge-Gossett proposal,” author and law professor Robert Hardaway told The Daily Caller. Continue reading
Centralized sovereignty is a necessary first step in controlling the people. It is the fundamental platform for tyranny. Thomas Jefferson in all his wisdom pushed America toward a decentralized States Rights doctrine. He knew that government most directly accountable to the people was at State level. That doctrine prevailed in America until 1865 when by force of bayonets it was destroyed, which is why Karl Marx wrote Lincoln a letter of applause for his denial of States Rights. Marx believed that centralized power was an essential first step in herding the people toward his communist utopia. Continue reading
…and it’s nearly Halloween!
Good Lord Charlie Brown… am I ever ready for this election to get done and over with, and I’m praying for a landslide victory for Trump, just to prevent any possibility of any further Democrat dirty, foul tricks and misdeeds. But we all can expect to see the usual massive criminal behavior in the days shortly afterwards. Continue reading
So, I have been sitting on this for some weeks, but just now got around to reading it today – and this just blew my mind. For starters – ALL of the key players in this story are Democrats – including three members of what has become known as, “The Squad” – you know – the EVIL ones… but back in late September – some Truth came to light… ~ Ed.
House Democrats — including three Squad members — tore into pharmaceutical industry chief executives during a Wednesday (Sept. 30) congressional hearing on Big Pharma profiteering, with Rep. Katie Porter verbally eviscerating one CEO for more than tripling the price of a critical cancer drug. (OH, THIS GETS BETTER… Continue to full story…)
…Hillary, Obama, Comey, Brennan, and a Passel of Obama Regime DOJ, FBI, and CIA officials from Russiagate indictments?
For at least a year enough facts needed to bring indictments against those who orchestrated the Russiagate attempted overthrow of President Trump have been in the public record.
Where are the indictments? What is the point of a never-ending Barr/Durham investigation of what we already know?
Are Barr and Durham, who are members of the Establishment, letting the clock run out, banking on the election polls being correct that the Biden/Kamala ticket is the sure winner and once the election is over the Establishment is safe? Continue reading
The coronavirus, widespread quarantines, an unprecedented self-induced recession, and unchecked rioting, looting, and protesting — all in a presidential election year — are radically disrupting American habits and behavior.
Rents, home prices, and office occupancy rates in major cities, especially on the two coasts, are dropping fast. Techies and young professionals have discovered that they can work from home without paying sky-high housing costs in order to be close to the office.
Those more fortunate wonder why they should get bogged down with commutes and urban traffic — or navigate city sidewalks amid homelessness, crime, racial tensions, and urban unrest — when they can make as much money while staying distant in quieter landscapes. Continue reading
If you can’t handle one little arbitrary political abduction at the hands of secret government police, socialism may not be for you.
Socialists protesting in Portland are learning that “The worst thing that can happen to a socialist is to have his country ruled by socialists who are not his friends.” – Ludwig von Mises
See, you might not realize it, but the USA is already heavily influenced by the socialist/ communist philosophy of Karl Marx.
Socialism is more of an umbrella term, meaning centralized control of the means of production– like factories and farming– in the hands of the state.
Communism is more extreme, with complete abolishment of private property, and a dictatorial government that allegedly attempts to distribute wealth “to each according to his need,” and extract labor “from each according to his ability.”
The two are related enough to use them interchangeably for our purposes. Continue reading
“When the public’s right to know is threatened, and when the rights of free speech and free press are at risk, all of the other liberties we hold dear are endangered.” ~ Christopher Dodd, contemporary Democrat politician, lobbyist and lawyer
Well before the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution, colonial newspapers of the new world were known for not offending the British-controlled colonies. They basically reported the news and events in Europe and the Colonies, very respective of British authority. But England became too oppressive and that oppression led to the American Revolution.
Newspapers of the day carried the rallying cry for freedom. Continue reading
The vaccine that no one has requested for a virus that no one has isolated or proven to exist that allegedly causes COVID-19 is on the horizon. When this vaccine is available, readers have already heard about the new mRNA technology as well as other types of technology that will be introduced into those individuals who line up to receive it. Continue reading
The Democratic Party is in extremis, and so, it has no difficulty in destroying the country, as it issues forth its own final death rattles, unbound by a lack of any moral code or conscience.
As I watched the manner Joe was handed the nomination, I had to wonder, if he had ever really wanted it at all. He had his nice retirement and fat government pension, supplemented by the other sundry millions that slipped into his bank account over 48 years in politics. He had his $16 million dollar estate to lounge and cavort about with the grandkids and the neighbors’ children, and even though his slipping mind drifted in and out of reality, it was probably a bit of relief from having to recall all his sins.
But then, Ol’ Barry Obama called him up and said “You’re it, Joe … you’ve gotta run. Bernie and Liz and the rest of those incompetents won’t be able to keep the lid on all our scandals. You’re in this as deep as we are, and the Good Guys are getting close to the truth. You’ve got to do this for all our sakes.” Continue reading
Last month, Bill Gates said that anyone who questioned the real agenda behind “the Virus”/ COVID-19 vaccine is a “crazy conspiracy theorist.” Well, there’s a damned good sight of information that must be questioned given what it is and where it leads, and when it’s happening in real time and readily evidenced in statements, videos and hard documents, it’s no longer within the realm of “conspiracy”. It’s fact. Continue reading

We Americans have to re-evaluate the way we look upon abortion. With an average of 1.3 million babies a year, in America alone, being denied their God given right to life as a result of abortion, surely it has scarred the very soul of this great country.
Kathleen Parker has written an article entitled “Pope Pelosi at the Gate, Life with the Speaker”. In her insightful article she writes the following: Continue reading
Another step in erasing our collective memory
~ Foreward ~
Scot Faulkner offers this insightful analysis of Radical Left efforts to erase our July Fourth holiday – and replace it with “Juneteenth,” to commemorate June 19, 1865, the day a little-known Union general proclaimed that the Civil War was over and slavery was officially abolished in Texas. Continue reading
It looked nothing like people think!
