For a brief moment following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Derek Chauvin, people of all stripes were joined in disgust and sadness. Sadly, that moment quickly passed. In my previous column, I detailed the event as well as the need for law enforcement to re-examine it’s policies and practices. However, in the days since, major cities in the United States have devolved into rioting, looting, and violence. With mainstream corporate media, forever devoted and engaged in radical leftist politics, spurring on the mayhem while excusing the behavior of criminal rioters.
Leftist politicians, celebrities, and media personalities have decided to stand on the side of anarchy, ironically for pure power-grab politics and profit. Cities, states, and towns controlled and neglected by the left have become warzones, and the trendy hypocrites and virtue signalers have assembled in force in an attempt to deflect from the truth. What is the truth? That the insidious lies of identity politics, diversity, inclusion, and intersectionality have sewed the wind, and in many places across the country, we are reaping the whirlwind. In the madness of the #resistance, leaders across the nation are guilty of dereliction of duty in their quest to remove the Bad Orange Man.
In the closing lines of my last column, I asked if law enforcement was willing to stand up against the bad apples in their midst. Well, in the wake of the past week, they haven’t had the opportunity because nihilistic and anarchist thugs have decided to demonstrate their ignorant rage. What should be national unity has become the beginning of race and class war. What should be a careful and serious examination of the citizen’s relationship with it’s leaders and law enforcement agencies has devolved into chaos.
To those that think this will devolve into some kind of civil war that you recognize from history, you are wrong. There will be no banners and flags, no orderly lines of combat. To the people that think declaring themselves “allies” to racists and thugs while engaging in meaningless virtue signaling will exclude them from violence, you are wrong as well. If good people, of all races and religions, do not stand on the side of stopping the violence in the streets, America is over.
Also ,if you are someone that uses the language of “my people, our people” and “them” and “they”, I have bad news for you…you are a racist, regardless of the group you identify with or are characterizing.
On a final note: If you’re a good person that has bent the knee to these protests, and is legitimately concerned about issues of race, police violence, and the subjugation of civil rights, I understand. If you are someone that is unhappy with the current system of justice in the United States and want to change it for the better, I understand. But know this, by endorsing, ignoring, or advocating what’s happening on American streets you are going to indeed get “change”, but I assure you it won’t be the kind you like. If and when martial law is activated, freedom as you have known it will completely disappear, along with any civil rights you now enjoy. Get ready.
” But mark my words. This war will not be fought on the frontier or on some distant battlefield, but amongst us… amongst our homes. Our children will learn of it with their own eyes, and the innocent will die with the rest of us.” – Benjamin Martin, The Patriot
On Monday, May 25th, four members of the Minneapolis Police Department – namely Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J. Alexander Keung – arrested 46 year old George Floyd after receiving a call alleging that Floyd had passed a counterfeit twenty dollar bill at a nearby store. A bystander to the arrest filmed the encounter, and in the recording – which is disgusting, and I will not play it here because I believe it to show the man’s wrongful death – we see MPD officer Derek Chauvin essentially murder Mr. Floyd. Here’s a picture from the footage:
For almost 10 minutes, Chauvin crushed the neck of Floyd while the alleged counterfeiter repeatedly said he couldn’t breathe while displaying obvious medical distress. The other three officers stood by, and instead of helping Mr. Floyd, they threatened bystanders who were asking them to stop. Heartbreakingly, George Floyd likely died during the encounter, shortly after begging for his mother. The vitriol and callousness of the officers on scene, especially officer Chauvin, were clearly visible, and Chauvin even appears to continually and unneccesarily shift his weight to apply more pressure to Floyd’s neck. It is a painful thing to watch, yet the officers seemed completely unconcerned that their actions were being recorded, probably because they engage in this type of behavior all the time. I make that assertion because Chauvin is the recipient of a dozen conduct complaints, none of which earned him any disciplinary action.
One can guess what happened next. Minneapolis has become a riotous warzone, with looting, rioting, and lines of militarized police responding with force. Hundreds of miles away in Los Angeles people also took to the streets to riot and loot, even destroying a couple of police cars. While I do not agree with innocent businesses being looted and destroyed, I completely agree that something must be done, and it has nothing to do with what color you are, it has much more to do with the pervasive “us versus them” mindset that is rampant in American law enforcement.
Police in America have become something they were never meant to be, and contrary to the gross racial narrative being pushed by mainstream media like CNN, the real truth is worse than some idiotic race-baiting. That angle is only pushed because it takes the focus off of the real problem, and makes the people responsible for what the police have become appear blameless. For example, in 2019, 1,004 people were shot and killed by police. The breakdown is 370 whites, 235 blacks, 158 Hispanic, 39 “other”, and 202 “unknown”. Those facts do not support the race narrative, yet those responsible for police corruption are happy to feed it to you in order to divide the public and gain political advantage.
What the narrative fails to ask is: Who is the Minneapolis Police Department Chief, who appointed him, and who has approved of and endorsed the department’s behavior? The Media narrative would have you believe that these police are a bunch of hillbilly, redneck MAGA types that can’t wait to literally stomp on innocent black folks. In truth, in Minneapolis and Minnesota, in cities and towns across the country where police abuses are most heinous and frequent, leftist and democrat policies and politicians are in charge. And also contrary to the Media narrative, most police chiefs are liberal democrats that stock their forces with corrupt union thugs that are only too happy to ignore their oath to the constitution in favor of illegal orders from Mayors, City Councils, and Governors. Just a quick look at the states continuing to impose illegal lockdowns, and using police stormtroopers to enforce them, will tell you just which political philosophy leads to abuse. Don’t believe me? Minnesota is deep blue, with a democrat Governor, Lt. Governor, and the infamous race-baiting Keith Ellison (D) as State Attorney General. Minneapolis is deep blue as well, with MPD police chief Medaria Arradondo ( a self-described “change agent” ) having been appointed by previous Mayor Betsy Hughes (D), overseen by current Mayor Jacob Frey (D), and approved by a city council comprised of 12 democrats and 1 Green Party member.
Everywhere you can see the abuse of power by police. For the last three years, corrupt and lawless federal police, the FBI, CIA, NSA, you name it, have been engaged in unconstitutional and illegal behavior. From James Comey and James Clapper to FBI agents like Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page, law enforcement has morphed into something akin to the Mafia, a “Cosa Notra”, or “our thing”, that knows no duty or law other than abusing their positions for more power. The power to destroy political opponents, settle petty personal crusades, and completely disregard the rights of American citizens starts at the top, and unsurprisingly it has trickled down into all of law enforcement.
The political right in this country is not blameless, either. The tired mantra of “it’s not all cops”, “the good people that make up the FBI”, and “we respect and support law enforcement” is responsible as well. Sure, it may not be all cops, federal agents and intelligence officers, but it might as well be. Why? Because evidently it’s enough of them to completely negate the actions of those that honor their oaths. When the occasional police officer comes forward to expose corruption or illegality, the Thick Blue Line makes sure they lose their jobs, reputation, and livelihood. It seems that “just following orders” is now the oath that is placed above all others, and history shows that to be a pathetic excuse for trampling the rights of others. People who lean right or libertarian are predisposed to expect law enforcement to be honorable and trustworthy, and in our current climate that can literally be a fatal mistake.
It’s beyond time to cast a distrustful and scornful eye on those that hold the power to imprison you and take your property or life. It’s time to question whether transferring multiple-tour combat veterans of Bush’s and Obama’s unending wars into domestic police forces is wise. It’s time to strip domestic law enforcement of surplus military weapons and gear that has become commonplace, because the mentality that comes with it is not healthy to maintaining a good relationship between a nation’s citizens and it’s police. Because nothing good can come out of the current state of America’s law enforcement. And to those honorable and good cops or to the readers of this column that disagree with my position, it’s time to step up and prove that you actually believe in and honor the phrase “to protect and serve”…instead of “to punish and enslave”.

The year is 1918, and the Argonne Forest is thick with the smoke of artillery fire. In the course of forty-seven days, over 26,000 young American lives were lost in the defense of northern France. Though America’s entry into World War 1 was late, it was pivotal. It would be the first time that the men of the United States would give their lives in defense of democracy, but it would not be the last.
It’s Tuesday, June 6th, 1944. After days of stormy weather and overcast skies, the young men of The Greatest Generation are battling sea-sickness and frayed nerves. After a short ride in their landing craft, the ramps dropped…..and German machine guns started their deadly work. At Point Du Hoc, at Omaha and Utah beach, American blood turned the sea red, but the spirit of the U.S. fighting forces, and the dedication to those with which they served, drove them relentlessly forward…….and along with their battling brothers in the Pacific theater they brought the Axis powers to their knees.
Just a few short years later, in November 1950, American forces fought a determined North Korean Army, along with their Chinese reinforcements, in the Battle of The Chosin Reservoir. Not just battling waves of North Korean troops, but frostbite, frozen guns and equipment……even the blood of American soldiers froze before it could hit the ground. Still…….the North Koreans were fought back to where they started, and a free and prosperous South Korea is the result.
Over a decade later, in the middle of the Vietnam War on January 21st, 1968, United States Marines and their allies came under intense fire while defending their garrison at Khe Sanh. For the next 77 days, and against all odds, the Marines successfully repelled the North Vietnamese. Though almost 500 Marines were lost, their brave actions cost their attackers over 10,000 troops……..and even though their country had lost the taste for this war, the fighting men of the United States never lost an engagement with their determined and savage enemy.
In more recent years, the volunteers of the United States Armed Forces have fought bravely in a thousand different battles – in a thousand different hellholes across the Middle East…….and they continue to do so. In places like Fallujah, and the inhospitable terrain of the mountains of Afghanistan – American men and women have served with distinction and honor against an enemy that wears no uniform and honors no rules of engagement.
Today is a day to remember those that have fallen in service to our nation. In the midst of your cookouts and festivities, among the smiles and laughter of good friends and family, take a moment to remember the stoic suffering of those countless Americans…..whom endured the unendurable, and watched as their friends and brothers-in-arms fell to the fire of the enemy. This Memorial Day, give thanks and honor to those that have fallen – so that we may stand. Of those that have fought for America…….all gave some, and some gave all.
“It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” – Abraham Lincoln at the Gettysburg Address
“…but sooner or later, you always have to wake up.” – James Cameron’s Avatar
“The country is filled with people in power who were put there by two previous presidents and elected by the ignorant, that bow to no law, honor no oath, and value no one but themselves. They have been emboldened by years of their own unanswered corruption, and they aren’t slowing down, they’re gaining speed.”
If one thing is becoming absolutely certain in recent days, it’s that Barack Obama held court over the most corrupt administration in United States history. With the willing help of a shady and compromised intelligence community and FBI, and cover from a complicit media, Obama and his sycophants attempted, and are still attempting, the first coup to ever take place in America. Many of you are now saying to yourself, “duh…we already knew that, and you’ve been chronicling it for years!”, and you’d be right. The amazing thing is, others are waking up to this undeniable truth. Even more amazingly, many of those waking from their intellectual and political slumber are among the self proclaimed “woke”. Yes…some of the followers of the Religion Of Woke are awaking, and even more surprisingly, it’s the response to the Chinese coronavirus that is ringing in their ears like an alarm clock. You see, sometimes when people realize that those they trust and worship have told them a huge lie, they start to wonder what other lies they’ve been told. For instance, what about the lockdowns and the ‘Rona?
Politicizing the response and handling of the virus that China unleashed on the world was a bridge too far, yet those doing the politicizing have yet to realize it. I can’t blame them for their ignorance of that fact, after all, for years they’ve been lying about and politicizing every other issue. They even got away with, so far at least, blatantly interfering in an election, destroying the peaceful transition of power, and sabotaging almost an entire presidential administration. Why not get away with politicizing a deadly foreign virus, making excuses for the perpetrators, demonizing the responders, and turning the willfull destruction of the United States and it’s economy into a red state/blue state quest for more power?
Well, oops. Turns out that even some of those who’ve been soaking in soymilk like to go outside, run their businesses, and enjoy their constitutional civil rights. Sure, there’s plenty of vapid, busybody suburban white women chomping at the bit to insist you stay cowered in your domicile. Mostly because they’re either financially well-off or insulated, and let’s be honest…doing exactly what they’re told by incompetent and corrupt politicians and media has become ingrained. In popular parlance, they’re called “Karens”. Luckily, these types are making it difficult for some of their fellow travelers to stay on the bus, because they can see where it’s heading. Namely joblessness, financial ruin, poverty, and a future paved with fear. Besides, what does hysterical screaming about fantasies like “inclusion”, “whiteness”, “trans rights”, “foundational racism”, and “climate change” accomplish, or even mean, when you’re told this is the apocalypse?
It also doesn’t help that since the current president won the 2016 election, there has been a steady stream of Establishment propaganda and fearmongering over the results. “Orange Man Bad” is the mantra, and each day was a new “existential crisis”. Tax returns,the 25th amendment, Russia, Ukraine, false impeachment, and on and on and on. In fact, while the sitting president was responding to the danger from the virus late last January with a travel ban from China and the formation of a taskforce, Congress was conducting a sham impeachment while establishmentarians like Nancy Pelosi, Andrew Cuomo and Bill DeBlasio were advising that you go enjoy a stroll through Chinatown after getting there on the subway. All the way into March. Even the expert bureaucrats like the god-like Dr. Fauci couldn’t decide whether everyone should wear a mask or not.
States under democrat governance have been drooling over staying shut down…unconstitutionaly ordering citizens to shutter their businesses and confine themselves, issuing order after order like little Mussolinis and Hitlers, using their corrupt and oath-breaking law enforcement agents to crush any that oppose their tyranny. The harder they are pushed, the more tyrannical they become, just like children in the midst of a tantrum. Democrat governors have whined and cried, ” I need 40,000 ventilators! I don’t have enough hospital beds! I need trillions in worthless printed money to bail out my years of mismanagement! We have to keep everything shut down so we can hang a destroyed economy on Drumph! We need mail-in voting so we can be sure to win!”.
Meanwhile the clown car media echo the establishment’s lies while ignoring rampant lawlessness and corruption on behalf of the previous administration. They say, “Don’t talk about Michael Flynn! Don’t talk about the death of the Justice System at the hands of Barack Obama and his flunkies! Keep being scared to death of coronavirus! Don’t talk about how Communist China has bought, undermined, and infiltrated every aspect of our society! Joe Biden is a statesman, not a lying, lifelong corrupt buffoon suffering from dementia, you dog-faced-pony-soldier-racist!”…not realizing that their lies have become so thick and acrid that they’re leaving a stink in the nose of their audience. And when people smell something that bad, they tend to run the other way.
The country is filled with people in power who were put there by two previous presidents and elected by the ignorant, that bow to no law, honor no oath, and value no one but themselves. They have been emboldened by years of their own unanswered corruption, and they aren’t slowing down, they’re gaining speed. In their arrogance they are dangerous, but also exposed. They planned their pandemic crisis, just like every other crisis of the last 3 years, and they are busy planning new ones. The question is are there enough of the woke and misinformed waking up to these facts? I think there might be, but at the same time I worry greatly that those who refuse to awaken are going to get even worse, and that their leaders in power are going to get very violent and vengeful. How much tyranny the American people are willing to hold their nose and choke down in the name of safety is still up in the air, but personally, my belly’s full of it, and I can’t, and won’t, take another bite.
Here’s to hoping many unlikely others feel the same way, because a reckoning is coming, and whether they like it or not, it’s time to decide where you stand…with tyrants, liars, and thieves and the dead-end they are promising, or with your fellow citizens that want nothing but to live and let live, provide for themselves and their families, and face the truth, no matter how uncomfortable it is.

In this video clip, John Roberts, Senior White House Correspondent for Fox News, can be heard telling his colleagues, “we can all take off the masks”. Why? Because the information they now have shows that the Wuhan Virus, ( and yes, it is from China and that’s not a race by the way ), has been nothing but a giant scam, and has a fatality rate of “0.1 to 0.3” based on recent data and findings.
But then comes the biggest shock of all in the “hot mic” moment…the reporter that Roberts is speaking with then says, “we’ve all been vaccinated anyway.”.
Well, what the hell does that mean? We’ve all known something about all of this stinks to high heaven. We’ve been cowering in fear from an invisible bogeyman, a supposed Grim Reaper…waiting for the moment someone sneezes or coughs to run screaming to our homes, where we piss our collective pants in terror.
As I have feared, it seems the Chinese Coronavirus and the American response to it reeks of deceit and dishonesty. In fact, though the virus is real, it may be that it’s lethality is insignificant while it’s value as a weapon against the rights of American citizens is unlimited.
It’s been weeks since The United States began starving itself to death, like a convict on a hunger strike, over this much-feared Chinese virus. California, New Jersey, Michigan, and Virginia…all “blue” states with progressive democrat governors, have been shut down for weeks. Other states have followed suit, at least in some measure, to prevent the widespread death and mayhem that this “pandemic” was supposed to create.
The Federal government rolled out it’s all-knowing advisors, Doctors Fauci and Birx, both well respected experts in infectious disease. The President, depending on the advice of these experts, moved federal programs and money to combat what he was being told was the apocalypse. He even signed into law the largest redistribution and, frankly, printing of, money in history. And for what?
Nothing. Millions of unemployed citizens. Thousands upon thousands of businesses closed, perhaps for good. Doctors Fauci and Birx claim there will be no more shaking of hands, no more parties or concerts, no kids in school until a vaccine is created. When will that be? A year? A year and a half? For which strain? Long enough to use public panic to force through a “vote-by-mail” scheme that would effectively destroy the Republic and reduce us to a Banana Republic forever controlled by establishmentarian leftists? Regardless of political persuasion, can we all agree that unverified voting by mail would be a disaster, rife with fraud and abuse?
Time to rise, folks, ’cause you’ve been played. Time to leave your house and go to work, school, and social events like you’re John Roberts strolling through the White House press briefing.

Three damning words. If the current situation has taught us anything, it’s that ‘Made in China’ is anathema to everything Western Civilization stands for.
America is a few weeks into it’s national suicide over the Chinese imported WuFlu, and things aren’t going so great. States are locked down, propaganda is flying, and getting ahold of any real data is almost impossible. One thing is for certain, China created the virus, lied about the virus, weaponized the virus, and then distributed it to Western nations in order to offset their own weakness in the face of it’s effects. Don’t believe me? Gordon Chang does, and he’s one of the best people to make such an assertion. He wrote ‘The Coming Collapse Of China’ in 2001, and even though his timeline was off…his predictions of how and why the Chinese Communist Party, otherwise known as the People’s Republic Of China, have done what they’ve done and why, are relevant.
First things first, this author has severe doubts about how America is responding to this crisis. In my opinion, the measures being undertaken by local and state authorities, in circumvention of the Consitution, are at best heavy-handed, and at worst outright authoritarian and suspicious. If I wasn’t so aware of the incredible incompetence of 99% of all government, especially local and state, I would have a nefarious conspiracy theory to fit the situation. But alas, however much I would like to believe that those we have entrusted to our governance are evil geniuses, they are in fact incredible dunces, and posess only the most superficial guile, and therefore are incapable of the pre-planning and strategic thinking required to enslave us. Instead, it is arrogance, ineptitude, money, elitist inbred privilege, a need to cover up past transgressions, and most importantly a raw and animal desire for power that motivates our “elected leaders”.
From the beginning of this outbreak, hidden and manipulated by communist China since at least November of last year, the level of response and the severity of it’s consequences have seemed unproportionate, at least in most places. Leaked videos out of China, provided by non-CCP outlets such as “Zooming In With Simone Gao”, indeed showed a horrible and incredibly frightening epidemic. Doctors having breakdowns, body bags lining hospital corridors, and funeral homes burdened with victims beyond their capacity to handle. Oddly though, while combatting the plague, China decided to boot western journalists from the country, and viola!, the very next day they “flattened the curve”. Now China claims no new deaths and very few new infections. They are liars. With one of the world’s largest populations of heavy smokers with accompanying air pollution at always-record levels, China’s population is especially at risk. The lesson is that nothing the communist government of China reports can be trusted or taken seriously.
In my opinion, China messed up, but in typical Alinski-Marxist fashion they decided to make lemonade out of the lemons they’d been handed. Or to be culturally correct, make soup out of the diseased bats they’d been handed. Anyway, there is a clear agenda:
Cover up the creation and escape of a coronavirus bioweapon.
Export the virus.
Expel western journalists.
Delete relevant information and people that threaten to expose the conspiracy.
Produce propaganda to blame others while at the same time touting yourself as savior and rescuer.
Manufacture and distribute defective testing kits and medical equipment.
Use the lunatic diversity and race fetishism of the West against it… while being the most racist nation on earth. Don’t take my word for it.
Re-open factories and shipping hubs at the point of a gun to show the world you have contained and managed the mess that you created.
Rely on CIA backed and corporate funded U.S. media to parrot and repeat Communist party lies in the name of globalism and easy money.
Artificially maintain Chinese currency and markets in order to absorb the faltering of western markets.
Advance further into the South China Sea and use the crisis to sieze more control over international shipping lanes. ( Do you see why the USS Theodore Roosevelt Captain is a piece of sh!t? What does he think is at stake?
I don’t care what your politics are. If you think that being reliant on an enemy nation for your energy, your food, your water, your security, your medical supplies and medications, your clothing, your tools, your manufacturing, your technology and virtually every aspect of your life is a good idea…then you’re either an idiot or a member of congress. America needs to learn the following lesson, if it says, “Made In China”, stay the hell away from it. Mitch McConnell won’t save you, as him, his wife, and his father-in-law take communist cash to assist the CCP in making warships. Dianne Feinstein had a ChiCom spy as her limo driver for almost 2 decades, while Nancy Pelosi is also denture-deep in Commie-cash. The Ivy League is infested with academics on the Chinese payroll. Media outlets like Bloomberg are wholly in the pocket of Xi JinPing, the Chinese dictator. We have been bartered and sold to a nation that despises us, for literally every reason you can think of. As far as China is concerned, the United States is a nation of decadent cowards and sissies, more concerned with their genitals, their color, and feeding their faces than maintaining the status of Western Civilization.
When America is done cowering from the Chinese Coronavirus, it must stop cowering from it’s self-imposed masters in Beijing as well.

There is an enemy walking amongst us. An invisible enemy. An enemy that so far cannot be quantified and hardly identified. It strikes down the fortunate and the unfortunate. It renders it’s deadly recourse regardless of the measures attempted to forestall it. And it’s not the Sino-virus from Wuhan, as dangerous as that is.
In the effort to defeat the viral opponent that has been forced upon the shores of the United States, I fear we have unleashed a beast that cannot be quarantined. Interference of the State and the Federal government into the purpose and lives of it’s citizens has become normal in a way that none of us ever envisioned. The American public has already ceded much of it’s liberty in the name of protecting itself from what it supposedly fears…terrorism, economic trouble, the weather…and now the Chinese coronavirus.
If the Chinese Red Army invaded the United States tomorrow morning, in a fashion on par with 1984’s “Red Dawn” ( if you don’t get the reference or only know the 2000’s remake, stop now, you’re not allowed to continue reading ), and your life, liberty, property, freedom, and the future of your family were at stake, would you fight? If you were told beforehand that one, or even two, in every 10 fighting would die…would you surrender?
If you were faced with the option of sheltering the weak and those that couldn’t defend themselves, while exposing yourself to risk, would you?
Many of you answered ‘yes’ to those questions. So then let me ask you this: if all you had to do to protect your family, friends, freedom, future and way of life was to self-mitigate the risk of spreading this invisible enemy, you know, like they are at the grocery store with plastic shields, facemasks and gloves, would you? Have we reached such a place where we are incapable of making decisions on our own to combat the effects of the Sino-virus?
The models of our doom, predicted a month ago and now irrelevant, are suspect. The numbers you see flashed on the screen on cable news each day about cases versus deaths are trash. How can we know the infection rate when no one is tested? What if, as awful as this virus is, it is widely distributed in the population and most are recovered, asymptomatic, or oblivious to it’s effects? Is cowering in your home, losing your job, losing your savings, and sending the world into a depression otherwise unknown before in human history worth this plague? I say no.
The experts have been incredibly wrong. 2.1 million people were going to be infected and 200,000 dead by the beginning of this month. Respected democrat-donating doctors Fauci and Birx have gone from trivializing the virus to stoking an all-out panic. “We must lock down for 18 months”, they say, economy and future be damned. And for those of you who say, “Hey, we stopped the spread and ‘flattened the curve’ because of social distancing and lockdowns. That’s why the numbers are lower.” Well, with all due respect, no, that’s not why the numbers are lower…because that was factored into the equation in the first place. On top of that, the government now codes every death “assumed of being from Covid-19” as a death due to the virus. That’s odd. Perhaps that’s why many reports of virus deaths are reported as, “due to complications of the coronavirus”. It seems that there is an effort afoot to inflate the number of deaths attributed to the sickness. At the same time, the “confirmed cases” number is pure fantasy. To be confirmed, you must be tested. Have you been tested? Do not doubt it, many of you have already had this disease and fought it off or been asymptomatic. Would the scary ratio on TV be so scary if it said, “25 million confirmed cases with 12 thousand fatalities”? Between 3,600 and 9,100 people died of the flu every month between November 2018 and March 2019, did we lock the country down? During the Obama-era Swine Flu outbreak, 12,500 died. I don’t even remember seeing it on the news.
I truly wish we had this much of a national reaction to cancer, as it kills many more thousands each year than the Wuflu. In my opinion, the Doctors we have on this problem nationally are hammers, and all hammers see are nails. It’s time to weigh things beyond their considerations.
What sense does it make to close businesses, schools, and restaurants while the grocery store is open? Isn’t everyone in the neighborhood going to the same grocery store? Is there a mass of deaths from employees at businesses deemed “essential”? The cashiers and stockers at the Safeway haven’t keeled over dead, have they? Under the current models and logic regarding the CCP-virus, Walmart would be the Valley Of The Shadow Of Death! Besides, isn’t it unconstitutional to tell me where I can and can’t go? To detain me without trial or purpose? To tell me that the 1st Amendment and it’s protections against being told where and when I can assemble are null and void? How about all of my constitutional rights…are they now ashes after confrontation with this invisible enemy?
It’s time for America to open for business. It’s time for our government…federal, state, and local, to get out of our way and encourage some self sufficiency and responsibility regarding mitigating the spread of this illness. It’s time to get the hell out of China, period. It’s time to realize that our leaders and elites are garbage. It’s time for the president to get over his germaphobia ( odd isn’t it, that the only thing to sink his economic boom is directly tied to his own personal Achille’s Heel? ) and get this country moving again. Protect the sick. Protect the weak. Take precautions. Because the treatment is going to not just kill the disease, but the patient as well.
“The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt
As the Western World continues to lose its collective mind with Progressivism, a question keeps pinging around my brain: Why are so many people falling for things that are nuts? The reasons are many, but in my opinion, it all goes back to education. When I say “education”, I mean in the classical sense……not the “humanities”, or “gender/ethnic studies”, but a classical education that focuses on examining the past in a dry, objective manner. Why? Because people, especially the young, seem to be operating under a dangerous delusion: That technology, advancement, and human nature/behavior all follow the same pattern…….and they don’t.
Time and history…..including the advancement of human technological skill…..follow a linear, straight line. Events, time, and the people involved move forward on that line as history progresses. I’ll give you an example: since the IPhone was invented and introduced to the public, each year or so a newer, better, “smarter” device is designed and released. Same thing with other technologies…….advancement moves in a straight line, and an expectation of this linear progress becomes ingrained. Still with me?
You could almost forgive someone who is the product of a postmodern education for applying this thought process onto human nature, and in turn behavior, if it wasn’t so wrong. See, human nature is a circle, not a line. While time, technology, and events move forward on that inevitable line, human nature revolves around like a wagon wheel. The wheel spins from barbarism to enlightenment, from enlightenment to apathy, from apathy to slavery, and then back to barbarism……then it spins again…..and again…..and on into perpetuity. Only people who are completely unaware of this fact, and of history, insist on their philosophy of “social justice”. The human beings who inhabited ancient Greece, Rome, Minoa, Egypt, and even older places like Gobekli Tepe were just as, if not more, clever and thoughtful than modern people. Reading the philosophies of Socrates and Marcus Aurelius, or perusing the historical accounts of Josephus or Thucydides, would quickly dissolve the illusion that human beings and their “new ideas” are new at all.
So why do so many people think they hold a moral high ground by virtue signaling and proposing toxic ideas like the “patriarchy” and “privilege”? Why do Progressives not understand they are just spinning the wheel of human nature back to tribal barbarism? Because ignorance is bliss. Its much easier and kinder on the ego to assume that you, as a modern Western human, are the apex of progress. You know what those that came before did not. You and your fellow Progressive travelers can ignore the wisdom of your ancestors because they didn’t have an IPhone and a Fakebook account. In fact, those that came before were Neanderthal morons who judged people by their skin color or ethnicity, and none of them tackled things like racism, inequality and global commerce. Because human thought and civilization is a straight line moving ever forward……just like my laptops processing power…….right?
This is why there are many people out there who want to erase and control the past……..because if you are ignorant of it, you can be shaped into whatever those people want. If you have no knowledge of your ancestral and philosophical inheritance, then you will never know anything, really. The only way to slow the spinning wheel of human nature is to be cognizant of its existence. Wallowing in the false security of the straight line of progress will rapidly lead to an escalation of our collective madness. It has happened before, and it will happen again………and knowing that is an absolute imperative.

Usually, this site is all about serious current events. Well, it can’t be politics and pandemics all the time. So, without further ado, this is what Disney Star Wars should be ( yes this video short is a few years old, but it stands the test of time ) , so…enjoy, especially if you’re a hardcore Star Wars fan, and if you’re not, this should convert you. This Is The Way.
