We’re Not All In This Together

NOTE: I am resurrecting the following column from June 17, 202. It needs to be read and re-read as often as you can stand it – so that you GET IT! ~ Ed.

We’re All In This Together,” the sappy title of one of several bad songs, has become the Ministry of Information slogan of the pandemic. You hear it while shopping for groceries at the supermarket, see it on billboards that tell you to social distance your way off the street, and in every single ad on TV.

And then, after months of being locked indoors and that we were out to kill grandma if we left the house, the same media lauded massive numbers of rioters crowding together to curse the cops.

The political fiction of the pandemic died once its administrators found a shiny new fascist object… Continue reading

The Long and Winding Road: Postcards from the Edge

~ Foreword ~
Too few Americans today appreciate, love and long for true individual liberty, in the manner I would expect from honorable men and women. They have discarded or simply forgotten the American heritage of freedom that had its inception at the start of our War for Independence, or it simply may just be that some are bred to the concept of liberty, like a racehorse is bred to run, while others are missing that oh-so-important gene.

Sixty years ago, the Silent Majority could probably view this situation we have today and readily see an end game. It was easy to connect ending the Vietnam War with ending anti-war protests, which meant voting for Nixon in ’68. They could see the nation’s social mores decline with the growth of the hippy anything-goes population. And in the same light, they knew that if law and order politicians ordered the streets cleared of hippies and protesting “students”, like the Students for a Democratic Society, those anti-American bastards, it would be done.

Concept of ‘white privilege’ is not fooling many blacks

THIS… is a Life that matters!

“Woke” white people, I’d like to ask you a favor:

Please stop asking for forgiveness for your “white privilege.”

You’re not fooling anybody. You’re not helping black people—or any other minority. And your public confessions don’t make you look virtuous. They make you look disingenuous, which is a really nice way of saying fake, phony, and fraudulent.

For starters, what is “white privilege” anyway? Because you were born with white skin, you have all these advantages that I don’t have?

Like what?

Like, you can get a mortgage loan that I can’t get? Continue reading

The Greatest Assault On Our Civil Liberties: Mask Mandates Have No Place In a Free Society

“We are facing the greatest assault on our civil liberties in our lifetimes. The virus is real, but the government reaction is political and totalitarian. As it falls apart, will more Americans start fighting for their liberty?” ~ Dr. Ron Paul, former U.S. Congressman [Texas]

A mandate to wear masks may seem like a simple matter and a “minor inconvenience” to some or many. But I don’t think those who take this position have really considered all its implications and the long-range ramifications and consequences that might accompany the meek and compliant acquiescence to even a “temporary” mask mandate.

When The Bullets of Freedom Ring, America Will Be Saved

“A plant rises up out of the moist, rich soil from a tiny seed no bigger than a few grains of sand. Its journey through life is preordained. It cannot sway from the goal set for it by its genetics, chemistry and biology. Somewhere along the way a bud forms on the end of a stalk or tendril of the plant and in but a few days, erupts into a splendor of color and a soft, enticing shape; each plant having its own unique form and color. In contrast, humans are far different than the plant, even though they too come from a seed. Humans possess what all plants and most, if not all animals, do not possess. Humans have pre-programmed into them volition, free choice, an ego, an id, a will to determine their own direction, their own future and their own environment. The unlimited expression of those qualities, within reason, is freedom.” ~ Ron Ewart

Is America A Lost Cause?

“Every country has the government it deserves.” ~ Joseph de Maistre

“Those who control the present, control the past and those who control the past control the future.” ~ George Orwell

In the beginning of the film Gladiator, after the defeat of Germania, there is a scene when Marcus Aurelius calls Maximus into his tent and tells him of his plans for Rome after he dies. During that conversation Caesar tells Maximus, “There was once a dream that was Rome.” Caesar was telling Maximus that Rome was more than just a spot on a map, it was an idea; and, while they had strayed from that idea it was Caesars hope that by placing Maximus in charge he could steer Rome back towards its founding idea as a republic. That idea, that concept, has been on my mind a lot lately as I watch the country I love circle the toilet. Continue reading

FINALLY: 1984 is here…

This encounter with Black Lives Matter is not a fight to abolish racism, it’s a fight to abolish our existing culture, i.e. Western Civilization (including Law & Order) through fear, brute force, and raw violence.

Our government not acting in a proscribed manner simply means that they are complicit.

A friend offered these cogent words: “What we are noticing is the overthrow of free speech, most intensively through Google & Utube, both Jewish organs. The ADL & SPLC are their managers”.

And I thought a protest was a peaceful group appearing before an appropriate body to rationally air their concerns about a specific issue, so says the First Amendment, in part “abridging the freedom of speech”, “the right of the people to peacefully assemble”, and to “petition the government for a redress of grievances”.

Reparations: Democrats Scam and Insult Blacks Again

Slave Trade, by John Raphael Smith, after George Morland, 1762-12, British print. The print’s caption reads: Lo the poor Captive with distraction wild, Views his dear Partner torn from his embrace

A congressional hearing was held on a bill to study reparations for blacks as payback for slavery. Reparations is simply another worm Democrat presidential candidates will put on the hook of their fishing rods to catch black votes.

I am a black man who is proud, grateful and understands how blessed I am to be born an American. My response to the Democrats’ reparations scam is, “Please stop!”. Please stop telling black Americans that we are crippled, inferior and are helpless children who can only succeed via government handouts, lowered standards, and special concessions. Just stop it!

Should you Homeschool your children?

The time is long past to return America to what DID make it great, and while the local Public Schools are unable to do it, as their goals are completely different – it is time for the family to come together – for the benefit of their own children – and the future of America. If you have not visited Le Metropolis Café before – then welcome to YOUR new Classroom, wherein we provide both the pros and the cons of a decision which MUST be made NOW. ~ Ed.

Black Lives Matter In Public Schools Is Turning Kids Into Little Marxists
School systems across the country are adopting BLM curriculum at at alarming rate, indoctrinating our children to achieve Marxist objectives.

Encouraging people to identify and condemn racism is an undeniably laudable undertaking by these school administrators. That’s not what’s really happening, however. By bringing BLM into the classroom, activist educators are allowing the most radically divisive movement in modern American history to warp children’s worldviews… (Continue to full article)

‘OK Boomer… I’m Gonna Keep Homeschooling My Children’Systemic Racism’ at Planned Parenthood
We homeschool because we live in an age of absurdity. Though we are swimming in words, truth and understanding are nigh extinct. Literacy, once a great gift, has ensured an incessant supply of beguiling wordsmiths pulling our hearts to enslave our minds. If literacy is to be of any value, education must serve to emancipate the mind. We homeschool so our children’s minds are not slaves to these clever wordsmiths. We homeschool to arm our children with the tools to master words rather than serve them… (Continue to full article)

Homeschooling Is All About Power
When the correct understanding of a right, or who should have the decision-making power, isn’t agreed upon, doesn’t it make sense that this authority should be vested in those closest to the students, the parents?

I was one of those “weird” homeschool kids. At least, “weird” seems to be what the all those cookie-cutter questions I received between kindergarten and 12th grade inferred. “Aren’t you afraid that you won’t be able to socialize with your peers?” or “Is it possible you are missing out on a ‘normal’ childhood?” were ones I heard regularly… (Continue to full article)

The Herd of Sheep in American Schools
The fact is, generations have aimlessly marched through the halls of our government schools. As low test scores seem to indicate, students aren’t learning much of anything – except, perhaps, “the appetite for gulping ideas ready-made.”

One wonders if such a scenario laid the groundwork for where we are today: a nation whose citizens seem to have forgotten history, have difficulty making a logical argument ­– much less being able to consider two sides of an argument – and are fixated on chanting a few social-justice-minded slogans… (Continue to full article)

How Public Schools Indoctrinate Kids Without Almost Anyone Noticing
Teaching the value of free thought matters now more than ever. Unfortunately, most American public schools take the opposite approach.

Many people have long suspected that governments sometimes attempt to indoctrinate their people to increase the government’s own power and influence. Unfortunately, ambitious governments will not stop at merely controlling what their people can do; they must control their minds… (Continue to full article)

If you have a Child in Public School, you’re sending them into a Warzone! (VIDEOS)
According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, 32 percent of fourth-graders and 24 percent of eighth-graders aren’t reading at a basic level. Fewer than 40 percent are proficient or advanced.

Today’s school system is more interested in pushing disgusting fantasies about how boys can be girls or 70 other genders than they are in actually teaching your child to be successful. The most recent PISA results, from 2015, placed the U.S. at 38th out of 71 countries in math and 24th in science. But instead of trying to help our students improve in math, some schools are instead teaching that math is racist…

In Seattle instead of teaching kids their 1,2,3s; they are now “reformatting” math class into a social justice class where they teach your kids how math is racist… (Continue to full article)

Supreme Court Hands Huge Victory to Families on School Choice
In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court held that families have a right to seek the best educational opportunities for their children, by preventing states from blocking the participation of religiously affiliated schools in state school choice programs.

Now is the time for states to cast aside these 19th-century rules rooted in prejudice that unfairly punish religious families, students, and schools. The Constitution requires states to provide a level playing field for religious and secular education.

The legal impediment to school choice programs is now gone, and it’s up to state legislatures to move forward advancing education choice… (Continue to full article)

The Libertarian Business Model

There’s a cynical cartoon that’s been circulating forever on social media that shows a seasoned cancer researcher telling a new recruit, “Yes, finding a cure for cancer would be the greatest thing since sliced bread. But remember, not finding a cure is how we butter our bread.”

Surely, I thought, researchers don’t seriously adopt that attitude. A cure even for one of the over 100 types of cancer would immortalize the researchers and likely earn them a Nobel Prize. Why would they settle for the obscurity of a steady but inconsequential job? Why would they be so devoid of moral ideals, when that was likely the reason they chose a career in research from the start? Continue reading

The Lucrative Business of Peddling White Guilt

There’s a lot of money to be made in telling white people they’re a bunch of racists.

Booker T. Washington famously observed over a hundred years ago, “Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” Continue reading

We are Being Summarily Destroyed

Final Phase of Attempt to end the USA in progress

The original COVID-19 attempt to lockdown the US citizenry and destroy the Trump economy by shutting down businesses and our work force did not quite go as Democrats had planned. As soon as the country began ever-so-slowly reopening, the economy—which President Trump had been instrumental in forming—began to again come alive. The Luciferian Left Democrat Party cabal was stunned. They had planned this out from the beginning so that there would be no chance of the US Trump economy coming back…so that their candidates would win the November elections. Then, the now-fully-Marxist Democrat Party would retake our country and place our citizens and other inhabitants into economic bondage…forever; or until they had stolen everything from us. Think Venezuela. But, it didn’t work. Continue reading

Three Marbles ~ It’s What You Scatter

During the waning years of the Depression in a small southeastern Idaho community, I used to stop by Mr. Miller’s roadside stand for farm-fresh produce, as the season made it available. Food and money were still extremely scarce, and barter was used extensively.

On one particular day, as Mr. Miller was bagging some early potatoes for me, I noticed a small boy, delicate of bone and feature, ragged, but clean, hungrily appraising a basket of freshly picked green peas. I am a pushover for creamed peas and new potatoes. Pondering the peas, I couldn’t help overhearing the conversation between Mr. Miller and the ragged boy next to me. Continue reading

Americans, Once Defenders of Freedom, Have Turned Into Sniveling Cowards

“The most effective leaders are actually better at guarding against danger when they acknowledge it that it exists. Cowards, in contrast, cling to the hope that failure will never happen and may be sloppy in the face of danger – not because they don’t acknowledge that it exists, but because they are just too afraid of it to look it in the eye.” ~ Simon Sinek, contemporary author and speaker

The forces of evil have stripped your land of civility and reason. Domestic terrorists, with only violence on their minds, have invaded your peaceful tranquility. They care nothing about you, your property, or your right to live and work in peace. They laugh at you while you scurry for cover, or complain to a government that doesn’t hear you. Continue reading

Smith: Fight for the Soul of America

I have mulled the problem of this communist movement in our country over and over again, and I only know for sure, that for me, there’s no compromise to be had, regarding the demands that are first and foremost in their agenda, as they use Antifa, BLM, the Queer Community and the Global Warming Alarmists as their shock-troops, their modern day Brown Shirts. They are using the immoral dregs of society to destroy the very infrastructure necessary to ever make America better through truly proactive and benevolent pursuits that come through the mutual cooperation of all Americans rather than intimidation and violence.

These communists who love to sound so altruistic are the same monsters who murder old men, attack lone elderly women in wheel chairs or simply trying to bring home a tiny sack of groceries. These are the same monsters who chant “Stop the Hate” and “Love Trumps Hate”, while in the next breath they curse and scream at their fellow Americans — they kick, spit on, beat and set fire to their fellow Americans.

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly… and today – most of it is UGLY!

Antifa and Muslim Groups Plan to ‘Police Minneapolis Under Muslim Rule’
It would have sounded farfetched just weeks ago. It doesn’t anymore.

“What you’re looking at, in my humble opinion, is communism moving into Minneapolis and St. Paul.” And not just Communism, but the Leftist/Islamic alliance. Green asserted that Antifa and Muslim organizations plan to “police Minneapolis under Muslim rule.” Those who scoff at such a notion simply aren’t paying attention to recent developments… (Continue to full article)

‘Systemic Racism’ at Planned Parenthood
“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” — Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger in a 1939 letter… (Continue to full article)

Cancelling America
It seems to me that the real racism is removing pictures of black people from packaging. Does this mean we can only have images of white people on packaging? Wouldn’t that be racist? How can we reconcile the woke idea that images of blacks are racist with the long-time push to have more black models and more black actors on TV? Would it be racist to have an image of an Asian on a package? How did Eskimo, an indigenous people inhabiting cold regions and a language, become racist?… (Continue to full article)

United Nations sides with Antifa terrorists, setting stage for UN invasion of America when Antifa backlash begins
In the UN’s view, Antifa is just like any other protest group that gathers peacefully to air grievances. And President Trump is getting in the way of this peaceful expression of Antifa’s First Amendment rights by classifying violent and destructive behavior as terrorism.

“International human rights law protects the right to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly,” says Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism… (Continue to full article)

Lt. Col. Allen West, U.S. Army (Ret.)

A Black Man’s Letter to Black Lives Matter
I am tired of our Nation cowering, appeasing, acquiescing, and surrendering to this absurd organization calling itself Black Lives Matter (BLM)

That equality of opportunity has enabled me to attain immense success for myself and set the conditions for the success of my two daughters. My wife Angela, an accomplished former marketing professor and financial adviser, and I now teach our daughters about the perils of equality of outcomes, and those who cleverly disguise that intent within the cries of social justice.

With this being stated, I am tired of our Nation cowering, appeasing, acquiescing, and surrendering to this absurd organization calling itself Black Lives Matter (BLM). There is nothing true or sincere about this ideologically aligned progressive socialist, cultural Marxist organization…. (Continue to full article)

SILENCED: We Live in a Time When Our “Opinions Qualify as Crimes”
Currently, we’re living in an upside-down and backward world where the minority of people hold all the microphones, successfully shouting over a potential majority of people who don’t like the way things are going.

I truly believe that most Americans don’t hate their neighbors, don’t indulge in cruelty for the sake of cruelty, don’t indulge in cruel behavior toward those of other races than their own, and just want to live their lives with what happiness they can find. This is not to say that racism does not exist – it does and I’ve seen it in action. It also isn’t to say that there aren’t extremists who wallow in hatred – there are and on all fringes of the political spectrum.

The trouble happens when one of those fringes tries to silence everybody else. And it’s working … (Continue to full article)

Dwyer: Protesting the Past

Today’s protesters protest by-gone times when slavery was legal and was considered, by many otherwise normal people, socially desirable and morally acceptable. They also protest the times of racism and racial discrimination that came after the slavery was abolished in the US. Those times are gone.

America, in order to make-up for the past suffering of the slaves, has bestowed on blacks many privileges and entitlements that are not available to all other Americans, affirmative action and protection from the so-called disparate impact being examples of. We, the American whites, have become – as a racial group – the most racial people on Earth. In predominantly white America, both implicit and explicit discrimination against blacks in admissions, hiring, retention, and promotion has been made illegal. Even vague expressions of perceived anti-black racism, like displaying a rope that some may consider a noose, are being vigorously investigated by the law enforcement and – if the evidence warrants it – punished. A privately-made statement, like “All Lives Matter“, that could be interpreted by some as racially disparaging or critical of blacks can easily end the professional career of the speaker, particularly if the speaker is white.
