Perfect job Liberty Tree

Every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered…History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

“[C]lassical political theory, with its Stoical, Christian, and juristic key-conceptions (natural law, the value of the individual, the rights of man), has died. The modern State exists not to protect our rights but to do us good or make us good — anyway, to do something to us or to make us something. Hence the new name ‘leaders’ for those who were once ‘rulers’. We are less their subjects than their wards, pupils, or domestic animals. There is nothing left of which we can say to them, ‘Mind your own business.

[The fella who runs Liberty Tree up in Canada does a fantastic job throughout the year sending daily quotes 5 times a week. Every few months or so he hits a homerun that is so topical it amazes you. America here on 7/27/20 is experiencing a communist insurgency like no other time. All 3 of these quotes deal directly with that attack even though they were written 70 years, 62 years and 5 years ago. Its not that America hasn’t been experiencing socialist attacks the past 100 years, its just that now they are so blatant about it and it has become so mainstream. These 3 are the type of quality of quotes that before I would have first put on Facebook and Gab in the mistaken notion that others might benefit from seeing them. I have since come to the conclusion that people are morons, more interested in factoids than wisdom. More interested in getting upset with AOC, “She’s stupid!” Or wound up about the latest Bill that Pelosi is trying to hustle through the House, than they are in learning from history. But anyway, 2 of these quotes are from the fifties! Telling us 2 things: None of this is new, and secondly, you were warned. You were just too stupid to listen.]

Its not given to you, you take it

“After several delegates had spoken on the issue, Patrick Henry rose from his seat in the third pew and took the floor. A Baptist minister who was watching the proceedings would later describe him as having “an unearthly fire burning in his eye.” Just what happened next has long been a subject of debate. Henry spoke without notes, and no transcripts of his exact words have survived to today. The only known version of his remarks was reconstructed in the early 1800s by William Wirt, a biographer who corresponded with several men that attended the Convention. According to this version, Henry began by stating his intention to “speak forth my sentiments freely” before launching into an eloquent warning against appeasing the Crown.

“I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided,” he said, “and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House?”

Henry then turned his attention to the British troops mobilizing across the colonies. “Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation?” he asked. “Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love? …Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other.”

As he continued speaking, Henry’s dulcet tones began to darken with anger. “Excitement began to play more and more upon his features,” the minister later said. “The tendons of his neck stood out white and rigid like whipcords.”

“Our petitions have been slighted,” Henry said, “our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne…we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!”

Henry stood silent for a moment, letting his defiant words hang in the air. When he finally began speaking again, it was in a thunderous bellow that seemed to shake “the walls of the building and all within them.” His fellow delegates leaned forward in their seats as he reached his crescendo.

“The war is actually begun!” Henry cried. “The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?

As he spoke, Henry held his wrists together as though they were manacled and raised them toward the heavens. “Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

(We’re going to have to fight for it. Governments don’t give freedom, you take it.)

Why are Christian radio hosts the worst at this?

This picture is of longtime NPR radio host Terri Gross. Like all NPR employees she is a New York liberal, homosexual and a Jew. She is also the best interviewer on the planet. She has had the most wonderful interviews of people that I never would have imagined would be riveting. Before anyone is put in front of a radio microphone they should have to pass a 40 hour class on Terri Gross. She evidently keeps her ego in her desk. She lets the guests talk.

Transition to Christian radio. I had always thought Jan Markel up in Minneapolis was the worst host of all time. She is an expert in the ‘3 paragraph’ question. Its really not a “question” at all, she simply runs out of breath for a brief moment and the guest is allowed to talk for the few seconds it takes her to recoup. She has no need for guests, she is the expert on every topic.

Then I heard an episode of Faith Works Live on Truth Talk KTIA 99.3 FM. The host there is Pastor Mike Demastus. Oh my God (pun intended). How can one individual be so unaware? I don’t think he can best Markel for run on, but he gives it a shot. Why anyone comes on that show is beyond me. This stuff is pretty basic. You don’t tell us how great your show is, you show us. Your guests are the expert, drain them dry. Bring them out. Be like Terri. Don’t be like you. You’re dumb. Put your ego in a drawer.

But to answer the question: ‘Why does Christian radio seem to be so bad at this?’ I don’t know. Usually something that comes along with the Holy Spirit is a measure of wisdom. Clearly that’s not always the case.

Radio prediction!

I always thought Jan Mickelson was a lame radio talk show host on WHO 1040. Smart as a whip but always pulled back from the edge. Wouldn’t “go there”. His replacement Jeff Angelo said, “You think he’s lame? Hold my beer!” I’ll go out on a limb here, I don’t see Angelo having a show on WHO January 1, 2022. A year and a half. He brings nothing. We’re at a pivotal moment in the nation’s history, and the best he can come up the past week with is whether or not the Hawkeyes should play football this fall.

One of the most devastating pandemics since 1917. Social revolution on par with 1968. A pivotal moment in time, we are deciding this moment whether government belongs to the people, or not (the rise of Trump). An Iowa incumbent Representative loses his primary. An incumbent Iowa Senator is trailing to the Democrat challenger. And Angelo is talking football?

But what do I know? KASI in Ames had Trent Rice talk to himself for 2 hours everyday for years! [The more I think about that example with KASI, it just boggles the mind. They absolutely wasted 2 hours a day for years. They didn’t have some “special insight”. They weren’t privy to some insider knowledge, that was just dumb.] Talk radio along with the internet have been the 2 big communication stories of the past 30 years. There is big money in it. The corporate decision in so many markets to go with substandard hosts is a headscratcher.

[Like I say, I understand talk radio addiction. Spinning your wheels, in the misguided thought that things would ever improve. But listen to someone like ‘Armstrong and Getty’ in this timeslot. Don’t reward stupidity.]

The weeks best memes

The story above about the poh leece taking the McCloskey’s rifle is too good. Police should have been following a mob of over 300 (?) that break down a gate and trespass on private property. The McCloskey’s shouldn’t have had to defend themselves. Is this the wild west? Have we turned the streets over to the thugs?

(You won’t see that bumper sticker anywhere else, its a rare a sighting as Bigfoot.)

“Man’s relationship to God, to government, and to his fellow man”

“The Declaration of Independence is the all-time masterpiece of ideological simplification. There in a single sentence of self-evident truth, the founding Fathers put into clear, easily understandable focus, the broad basis of man’s relationship to God, to government, and to his fellow man.”

— Clarence Manion (1896-1979) American conservative radio talk show host, dean of the Notre Dame Law School 1956

I’d never heard of “Clarence Manion” before. Interesting fellow. He capsulizes very well the interactions of a sound government with natural law: God – Government – Man. Even though it is not a theocracy, a sound government very much has God in it. And in these times where we are experiencing a communist insurgency with the BLM movement, it does one well to remember the key component of communism: It cannot coexist with the Christian God. It was tagged “godless communism” for a reason.

They don’t seem to be interested in this sex scandal

Usually a good sex scandal draws the media like nothing else. Think Stormy Daniels, Christine Blasey Ford, when the accused is a Republican. CNN had a parking spot for Stormy. They were 24/7 with her and the creepy porn lawyer. They also couldn’t get enough of Blasey Ford during the Kavanaugh hearings. But with Ghislaine Maxwell there seems to be a distinct lack of curiosity. “Conspiracy nuts” have known about all this for decades. The “Lolita Express”, “Fantasy Island”, Bill Clinton being besties with Jeffrey Epstein.

When everyone else catches up after 15 or 20 years, do they apologize for dismissing this all those years? Do they ever think, “Hey maybe we’ve been wrong about these other topics?” Its almost like they’re complicit in trying to cover it up all these years. No one really seems interested. Which is curious given the normally tabloid nature of the MSM. I’ve gotten to the point where I smell the MSM’s shit a mile away.

Fall of the Cabal

“Follow the money”. The world is full of examples, but the Covid-19 pandemic provides another. There’s no money in a 70 year old anti-malaria drug without a patent. If you’re going to make money off this crisis, you need a new drug. Remdesivir.

The video above is just an updated video of similar ones before it. Ones that have followed the money and show you what’s going on. Randomness is good. Randomness is freedom. World events for the most part have never been random.

“Parler is the strawman…. kind of like the Republican Party. A place where conservatives can go to spin their wheels and waste their energy, while the people in charge know NOTHING is ever going to happen. GOP is the foil, the dupe, the evil entity that Democrats have to have to get their people riled up. If the Republican Party didn’t exist, Democrats would have to invent it.”
