Commentary: Not open for debate!

“I look at life from Both Sides Now!” ~ Judy Collins

I’m not posting this for debate. I don’t need any comments. Just please consider this… when the President is a jerk…

The bottom line has been that Trump is a jerk. He’s crude, he bloviates, he gets his feelings hurt and he’s a hot head.

Let me tell you what else he is. He is a guy that demands performance. He is a guy that asks lots of questions.

The questions he asks aren’t cloaked in fancy phrases, they are “why the hell….” questions. Continue reading

Setting a ‘D-Day‘ to Restart the American Economy

President Trump and his administration should designate a day in May as the target day — D-Day, if you will — for America’s $22 trillion economy to be “back in business.”

Much is being said these days about how the two-week period of April 5-19 is expected to experience a peak in coronavirus (COVID-19) deaths. This prediction applies to the city of New York as well as certain other cities and areas of the United States.

Concurrent with the above time period and continuing thereafter, the nationwide supplies of essential face masks, protective clothing, ventilators, protective gloves, and other needed medical supplies to combat the virus are exponentially mushrooming. As of the last week in April, there should be little or no scarcity of the above items to treat dangerously infected Americans, no matter where they live. Furthermore, by the end of April, one or more therapies will most likely receive greater approval as effective treatments against COVID-19. Continue reading

Authority and Chaos: Beyond Anything We Will Ever See Again

Authority, when first detecting chaos at its heels, will entertain the vilest schemes to save its orderly facade but always order without justice, without love or liberty, which cannot postpone their world’s descent to pandemonium.” ~ Alan Moore, V for Vendetta

At what point do we stand up and say, ‘This is fuckin’ crazy. These numbers are not adding up for all this to happen’?!! At what point does that happen?!! Because this is beyond anything we will ever see in our lifetime again.” ~ Krystal Tini

Liberty, equality under the rule of righteous law, and freedom are not entities and ideas that anyone should be so willing to cast aside, in some adventure of misrule by the powers that be, since without such virtues in our society, order, peace and tranquility cannot long endure before any nation reaches towards malevolent depths beyond one’s imagination.

The Cocktail Solution

People know government can spend astronomical amounts of money, crisis or not, and who cares where they get it as long as they’re in on the deal. They also believe to the depths of their souls that the ones running the show are well-educated with the best of intentions since they have a stake in the outcome of their policies. Since their leaders are not psychopaths, at least clinically, unless Keynesianism is now a clinical disorder, they wouldn’t deliberately sink the ship that keeps them and their families afloat living a life of splendor and privilege.

They therefore trust government, trust that it will act in their interest. But that’s where they repeatedly make a critical mistake. It’s the free market that serves them, not the government. Continue reading

End the Shutdown

The shutdown of the American economy by government decree should end. The lasting and far-reaching harms caused by this authoritarian precedent far outweigh those caused by the COVID-19 virus. The American people—individuals, families, businesses—must decide for themselves how and when to reopen society and return to their daily lives. Continue reading

Suspending the Constitution: Police State Uses Crises to Expand Its Lockdown Powers

That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn’t even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn’t even an enemy you could put your finger on.” ~ Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

You can always count on the government to take advantage of a crisis, legitimate or manufactured.

This coronavirus pandemic is no exception.

Not only are the federal and state governments unraveling the constitutional fabric of the nation with lockdown mandates that are sending the economy into a tailspin and wreaking havoc with our liberties, but they are also rendering the citizenry fully dependent on the government for financial handouts, medical intervention, protection and sustenance.

Unless we find some way to rein in the government’s power grabs, the fall-out will be epic.

Everything I have warned about for years—government overreach, invasive surveillance, martial law, abuse of powers, militarized police, weaponized technology used to track and control the citizenry, and so on – has coalesced into this present moment. Continue reading

The Devil’s Bargain: Fascism to the Inth Degree

If the dream is won though everything is lost, we will pay the price, but we will not count the cost.” ~ Rush

Madmen in America are in charge and they are driving the nation in a direction that forces Americans to pay the cost of whatever the federal government wishes to incur, as they seem to be attempting to further render the people more dependent on the government for financial handouts, medical services and general sustenance and protection, while Americans are embracing their own chains of servitude. Not only are the state and federal governments tearing asunder the fabric of the Constitution and the country, they are wreaking havoc with shutdown mandates that have further exacerbated the economy and attacked individual liberty, in one more vast overreach and expansion of government power.

…and in the U.S – we are being played like a fiddle!

OVER 50,000 PEOPLE HAVE RECOVERED FROM CORONAVIRUS AROUND THE WORLD, ACCORDING TO JOHNS HOPKINS

As of Wednesday morning, the Johns Hopkins tracker showed 94,225 cases of the virus in 73 countries. Of those cases, 51,026 people recovered from the virus, including 49,856 in mainland China…. (Continue to full article)

Debate is Over Concerning This Part of the Second Amendment?

Justice Antonin Scalia

The Left has long lost this debate, but they keep trying to relitigate it on the campaign stump. The Second Amendment grants the individual right to keep and bear arms. That was the landmark D.C. vs. Heller decision, though it applied only to federal enclaves. The McDonald v. Chicago decision extended this right to the states proper. But the Left is obsessed with the militia portion of the amendment: “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringedContinue reading

The Supremacy of Minorities in America: Is Racism Racist?

Nearly every evening in the news, you hear about a racial smear, a racist act, discrimination on a job site, prejudice at a school function and another dozen charges against white people in America.

This country remains a dominate ethnic group of European-Americans, but not for long as Caucasians will become a minority by 2042. Additionally, they suffer every charge of racism in this country. Bernie Sanders, Maxine Waters, Don Lemon and countless others call the president of the United States a ‘racist’. Of course, they also say that most Americans are racists.

Ironically, if you listen to House Members John Lewis, Maxine Waters, Alexandria Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Hank Johnson and many other minority leaders—whites are the single worst element of human beings in America. Whites are racist, xenophobic, nativist and supremists. Continue reading

The intelligent woman speaks wisely…

I was born in 1962…not in the 1800’s. I love history and I honor all my ancestors and current family that have served in the military. Yes, even those that were misguided enough to serve in the British or Union Armies. As long as they were not traitors and didn’t desert one for another, so Benjamin Church Jr. that leaves you out. Getting lost at sea, was too good for you. Getting back to my intended topic. I had many relatives that fought in the War of Northern Aggression some as officers and some as privates. It is a clear point that no one chooses to understand living in the South in the 18th and 19th century. I am not to debate the slavery issue, though I would never own another person regardless of race. Those that enjoy and relive Confederate history do not get a fare shake, it doesn’t mean that we support any race being better than another..it is just we love and support history. History is so important to the running of our nation. Continue reading

Nock, Nock – who’s out there listening?

I completely understand the following, written over 80 years ago, is going to be really hard to understand by those handicapped with a Public Fool System education, but, please try to understand, it’s critically important! ~ J David Ferguson

“There is also an impression that if actual recessions do not come about of themselves, they may be brought about by the expedient of voting one political party out and another one in. This idea rests upon certain assumptions that experience has shown to be unsound; the first one being that the power of the ballot is what republican political theory makes it out to be, and that therefore the electorate has an effective choice in the matter. It is a matter of open and notorious fact that nothing like this is true.

Our nominally republican system is actually built on an imperial model, with our professional politicians standing in the place of the prætorian guards; they meet from time to time, decide what can be “got away with,” and how, and who is to do it; and the electorate votes according to their prescriptions. Under these conditions it is easy to provide the appearance of any desired concession of State power, without the reality; our history shows innumerable instances of very easy dealing with problems in practical politics much more difficult than that. One may remark in this connexion also the notoriously baseless assumption that party-designations connote principles, and that partypledges imply performance.

Moreover, underlying these assumptions and all others that faith in “political action” contemplates, is the assumption that the interests of the State and the interests of society are, at least theoretically, identical; whereas in theory they are directly opposed, and this opposition invariably declares itself in practice to the precise extent that circumstances permit.” ~ Albert J. Nock

Both sides now…

“I look at life from Both Sides Now!” ~ Judy Collins

Reviewing Trump’s latest moves regarding the $4.8 trillion New Budget that he and the GOP “negotiated” with the Democrats – a budget that gave them everything they wanted – and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, that tramples on U.S. national sovereignty and individual liberty, the Bill of Rights, while introducing an Expansion of Socialism in America, as well as the nation destroying United Nations U.N. Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 programs and mandates, One Certainly Should QUESTION EXACTLY WHO WERE THE TURNCOAT TREASONOUS BASTARDS ADVISING President Trump on these latest bills. Continue reading
