I can’t even remember the name, ‘Conference at Iron Lake’? (1964) The Bilderberg types saw that communism wasn’t sustainable as the existential threat to mankind to continually whip us into a frenzy for more control and more tax dollars, so they chose “environmentalism” as the new threat that would never end. The ultimate Boogeyman.
Think about that, the globe’s a big place, there will always be something to “fix”. Endless taxation and social engineering.
Enter the Environmentalism Class that suddenly became a class option in my 1972 junior high curriculum. (Another good “ism” is terrorism. Most of the ills in the world are identified by an ‘ism’, socialism, communism, humanism…) Should environmentalism ever fail as the catalyst du jour, they are prepping (with their DNA swapping experiments) to have an ‘alien’ ready to go as the Threat From Outer Space!
I regret to inform you that your right to vote is hereby rescinded, effective immediately. We had hoped it wouldn’t come to this, but your insistence on continually electing Susan Collins to the Senate, cannot be tolerated. We can tolerate Democrats, and we can tolerate Republicans, but this whole ‘Benedict Arnold’ thing has to stop.
You will be glad to know you won’t be the only State to lose this Right. We are in the process of removing all voting booths from Arizona, Utah, Kentucky and Alaska as well. This sort of dipshitery cannot be tolerated or allowed to spread. We must nip it in the bud!
You’ll get over it, and will likely find something else to do with your time. People of your intellectual ability should have no problem with finger-painting or binge watching episodes of The Kardashians. Your water supply will be tested to see if that’s what’s making you so damn stupid.
So 6 months ago I went to the free side of WordPress. The transition for the first blog I did that with went okay. Iowa Life took awhile to pick up steam, but it did okay. Everything was still functional. Editing, previews, the ability to ‘Like’ and follow other blogs. This time WordPress out did themselves in the screw job. The address makes no sense, they threw in a ‘dot’ where it makes no sense. I can’t return the favor and hit ‘Like’ when someone does it to mine, their blog doesn’t recognize my credentials.
In fact when I do enter the very email address I used to sign up to WordPress, it issues a “invalid address” message. I can’t view a preview of my post before I publish. I can’t even “Like” my own post! You get what you pay for. You quit paying that $26 dollars a year and you got a target on your back. Between that and the Google search bias on conservative site, you are screwed.
It hit me a couple of months ago that Democrats and their volunteers would be coming to my door in 2020. For one thing Iowa has the first in the nation vote for the presidential candidates called the Iowa Caucuses. So this afternoon young and stupid showed up at my door. Before he could start his pitch for Bernie I said, “After what you’ve called me the past 4 years?“
I knew Democrats were stupid, but that stupid? That’s industrial strength stupid. If their stupid was a Hostess product it would be a Twinkie 5 city blocks long. If it were a bomb it would be the Mother of all Stupid. I asked the dipshit, “Do you think you can call me those names the past 4 years and I’d ever vote for a Democrat?” My god what an ignoramus.
What did they think was going to happen when on CNN might after night after night after night after night after night after night after night after night after night after night after night after night after night they brought on one guest after another to insult me?
When NPR used my tax dollars to go after my President who’s just trying to do the job he was elected for? While they studiously ignore the felonies of Joe Biden and James Comey? When Hollywood celebrities got outlandish amounts of press to insult Trump voters? When Democrat politicians called us deplorable, racist, anti-Semitic, xenophobes?
WHAT DID YOU THINK WAS GOING TO HAPPEN? Did you think we weren’t listening? Did you think we wouldn’t believe you? Did you think we’d say, “Aw shucks, they didn’t mean it.” Is that what you thought? I UNDERSTAND YOU’RE STUPID. I UNDERSTAND YOU HAVE AN IQ OF 45. I UNDERSTAND YOUR PARENTS ARE BLOOD RELATIVES. I UNDERSTAND YOUR DUMB AS A STUMP. But did you really think I’d ever vote for a Democrat after 4 years of that? You don’t get to call me that, then ask for my vote February 3. You don’t.
You can’t say ‘boo’ to a black person. You can’t say ‘boo’ to a Jew. But a Christian white male? You can insult him 24/7/365 and he’s supposed to take it. Uh, uh. No, you don’t get to call me that. I ain’t going to be your societal Piñata.
Gab was all excited this morning with a YouTube video that said, “We need a new party!” This gentleman was convinced that the Republican Party wasn’t getting it done (true) and that the answer was a new party! One that followed the Constitution by gum! Evidently being slightly older my memory stretched back a little further and I was forced to rain on this man’s parade.
We’ve had a Constitution Party 25 years ago! We had a Reform Party. We had a US Taxpayers Party (USTP). We had a Libertarian Party, a Natural Law Party, a Tea Party, we’ve had the best parties there ever were! And they were ignored. Just like any future party would be. Probably the best idea of the past 25 years was the organization that didn’t run candidates at all, the Tea Party.
They were a facilitating entity within the Republican Party. They were promptly coopted and subverted by the establishment within just a few years, but they scared the bejeebers out of the RINOs for a couple of years. Tossed a couple out on their ass in primaries. I understood the guy’s sentiment, wanting a new party, Lord knows I do.
But building a good party doesn’t make the voters any smarter. Building a library doesn’t inherently make people smarter. Building a bank doesn’t make people richer. Building a fitness center doesn’t make people more physically fit. Nope, voters are as dumb as they come. They couldn’t vote themselves out of a wet paper bag.
Perhaps my favorite right now is the State of Utah. Aside from that traitorous son of a bitch Mitt Romney, they also elected Mike Lee. He is allegedly a United States Senator, although right now he’s doing his damnedest to give American jobs to Indians. How do you elect someone like that? Its just incomprehensible. How are you a member of Congress and fight for another country’s workers?
Nope, the answer isn’t a new party, its smarter voters. But how the hell do you accomplish that? No way I know of. The John Birch Society has thought for 60 years that voter education was the key. Doesn’t seem to be. Voters seem to be terminally stupid, ignorant and selfish. There ain’t no cure for that.
We’re supposed to believe the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise. I don’t see how anyone who has read the evidence can still believe that. Forget radar, forget the intercepted dispatches, forget the political mood that was common knowledge an attack was coming, a man in a guard tower with a set of binoculars could have gone a long way.
Recent historical releases from the 1880’s or so detail the work they were doing with aerial reconnaissance on the coast with hot air balloons. Something like 80 miles with the height and good optics. Flash forward 60 years and the incredible technological advancements of that era, and we’re supposed to believe we were caught unawares?
During the campaign of 1940 while FDR was promising to keep us out of the war, he was secretly ordering bombers and tanks. He’s about the most vile bastard in American history. For the life of me I can’t figure out why Americans are so gullible.
YouTube has allowed me to verbalize what I inherently knew, we’ve been betrayed. Its not just me. People younger than me look at these videos from the 40s, 50s and 60s and they simply cannot believe what life was like back then. Before infrastructure was crumbling, jobs had disappeared and there was a permanent underclass living on the streets.
The greatest nation in the world didn’t just fall, it was pushed. In 150 short years we had outpaced nations that had been in existence a thousand years. We beat them economically, we beat them militarily, we beat them culturally, we beat them like a rug. How does a nation like that fall in just 60 years? In just one lifetime?
The last Secretary of War James Forrestal said to the effect, when every single decision is wrong, its not stupidity, its by design. In these old videos, even if you didn’t know that it was America’s industrial power that won the war, you can see it for yourself. The factories and the things we made only 2 generations ago is just unbelievable.
Even if the people watching these videos couldn’t tell you this, they instinctively know that a service economy doesn’t create wealth. It just shuffles it around. The wealth of a nation is increased by manufacturing goods using the raw materials of the earth. Manufacturing wasn’t moved overseas because it was too expensive here, the corporate decision was made to say to hell with America, our goal is simply to increase profits. And it wasn’t to the shareholder.
Its the same way the decision was made to quit paying dividends to shareholders decades ago. People today have no idea reputable stocks used to pay 4%, 5% or even 6% dividends. All that money is simply being pocketed now. Like when they moved production overseas and were paying pennies on the dollar for labor costs, did the cost of the product go down? No! Executive compensation simply went up!
They didn’t enrich the shareholder, they didn’t enrich America, they only enriched themselves.
The old adage was “in the end we’re all Americans”. That’s no longer true. Half the country thinks they are “global citizens”. In their world America always buys. America always flies. America supports everyone. America dies for everyone. America does it all! They truly have the vision of the anointed.
Right now the US Navy is undergoing outright insurrection against the President. Trump pardons Eddie Gallagher and the Navy decides they are going to prosecute him anyway. The Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer has now been fired, so we’ll see how it turns out. I can’t think of a more pro-military President than Donald Trump.
The Courts are in open rebellion against the President, ruling on issues they have no jurisdiction. Sanctuary cities are releasing murderers and rapists simply because they loathe Trump. Entire States are trying to eliminate their role in the Electoral College. Other States are adding to the Constitutional requirements to be President by demanding to see Trump’s tax records.
Sports figures take a knee on the field and refuse to go to the White House. Members of the US Olympic Team slander the President for no reason. If they think I’m going to forget all this they are nuts. They’re nuts anyway. I hope no American forgets. I hope every American gives it right back to them. Gives them what they have coming.
One of my favorite memories over my lifetime has been the wailing and moaning and utter helplessness of Republican states during a Democrat administration. “We can’t do anything, they’ll take away our highway money!” The Democrat President then has a clear shot instituting his blood sucking unconstitutional way. Anyone even somewhat familiar with the Constitution remembers the 9th & 10th Amendments and the great power they give the States.
You get the message that, “Well yes that applied in the old days, but that’s no longer true in new America!” And that if you didn’t buy into it you were some kind of uncouth moron. What they fail to tell you was that they didn’t go through an amendment process to remove States Rights, we went through a civil war. Lincoln ended States Rights nearly singlehandedly. The last 4 years made me rethink all this.
Democrat States have shown great leeway (with the help of Democrat packed courts) to resist Federal power. In fact they call it ‘the resistance’ States Rights aren’t dead! So as it became increasingly clear the past 4 years that Washington was entirely incapable of accomplishing anything good, it occurred to me that freedom loving Americans needed to establish a bulwark against an encroaching Federal Government by the establishment of likeminded State Legislatures.
DC is as gone as if it had fallen into a sinkhole. Captured by an enemy power. It serves no useful function. Its a shame very, very few people see this. Other than a Convention of the States or a Constitutional Convention, I see no other answer. The sad part is that in all the areas of elections, there cannot be for most people a more boring sector of politics than local House races. Regardless, that’s what it comes down to.
