The Ties That Bind?

Sure, it’s a clichéd question….but it’s still applicable: What are the ties that bind us? To be honest, when it come to culture, sometimes I feel like a man-out-of-time. The things I value and the seemingly simple truths that guide my philosophy are now, in my opinion prematurely, out of fashion. Maybe that’s unavoidable since my generation – the much maligned Generation X – is extraordinary for a very special reason……..we are the last  generation of the 20th Century. In many respects it is also the last American Generation…raised on Rock music and Capitalism, taught to ignore race and respect our country for its strengths – while acknowledging its failings.

It was expected that our lives would be more prosperous than our parents and grandparents, and that some personal responsibility was required to achieve that goal. We grew up without computers and cellphones, played outside, and were expected to be home for dinner regardless of the day’s events. I, for one, went to church every Sunday ( until I was a rebellious teenager ) and was a Scout…….and though I hated it at the time, I couldn’t be more thankful now. In turn, my parents were not my “friends”….they were my parents, and there were times when I thought they were trying to ruin my life……but now as an adult I realize they were doing their best to prepare me for the heartless and cruel world that awaited me. For that I am indeed thankful.

With all of that said, I truly feel sorry for the children raised by my selfish generation. We left it to old 60’s liberals to educate our kids…….and the results are evident. We lingered in adolescence ( and still do ) while the idiots that tried to brainwash us into tribal communism discovered that it was far easier to brainwash our offspring. The results of this indoctrination, and the lowered and pathetic standards for public education, are now completely obvious in the brain-dead philosophy of the modern Millennial. The lefties in entertainment and media are now discovering, all too late – that their Frankenstein-monster of political correctness and social justice is immune to party loyalty. They forgot to wink and exempt themselves when they said that “all accusers are to be believed” and that the “white patriarchy is evil”, and that “capitalism must be replaced with communism”………….and as such the monster is out of control and on a mission to kill its deluded creator.

Now I must come back to my original question: What binds us? Unfortunately my answer will depress you. Nothing binds us. After 8 years of a racially divisive, communist, and completely unvetted President Obama – who in his own words vowed to “transform America”……we are hopelessly divided into two groups: One group that values what we once were, warts and all, and wants a revival……..and another that hates what we were – and are – and wants it destroyed, without serious critical thought about what replaces what they tear asunder. We are reaping the rewards for the amount of chaos happening in our failing urban culture, and the true causes of it are never mentioned…..like fatherless families hooked on public assistance, music and popular figures that glorify stupidity and mindless violence, and a cynical and heinous political class that exploits the ignorance and groupthink of its constituents for their own pursuit of power. In truth, the ties that bind us should be respect of the Individual, respect of morality and history, a shared experience of culture and iconography, national pride, and a shared identity as American citizens whom are beneficiaries of our extraordinary founding.  The only question is whether we will unite in prosperity or after catastrophe………or at all…..and I think I know the answer…….what about you?

Luke Eight Seventeen

It’s Friday, and not just a normal Friday, but the one before a Holiday.  So, in the spirit of Friday, I’m going to make some crazy statements about what is happening in the U.S., and the world……..and I leave it to you to decide whether I’m serious or not, or whether what I’m going to say is true – or whether it’s Crazytown here at The Empire. So, with that said…….

Amid all of the drama we see everyday over the election of Donald Trump, and the daily stories about how he drinks water, or tweets, or whatever – some very important events have been unfolding, and a secret war has been taking place in the halls of our Government as well as within the chambers of power in Europe.  We all see the headline news every day, but how many of us really see them? I know, we all have busy lives, and as such, have a tendency to lose the totality of events from an objective perspective. Everything becomes about that day……not necessarily about the sum of our days or all of information we receive over time. This is not accidental. The best way to ensure that you never spend too much time thinking about what you’ve just heard – is to tell you something new and urgent that changes your focus, and then do that so frequently that your ability to process information as a whole becomes disabled.

Have you noticed the change in the past year? Before a year ago, had you ever heard of the phrase, “Deep State”? Had you ever dreamed that powerful people, like Harvey Weinstein and Hillary Clinton, and their cohorts, would begin to be exposed, as not just perverts and self-serving douchebags but traitors? Did you ever think that Congressmen like Rep. Matt Gaetz would take to the floor to declare that a “Coup-de-tat” is taking place in our Government……… right now? Have you taken a moment to look at the reports of human trafficking and pedophile arrests nationwide since Trump’s election? If not, I suggest you do. Or hey, if you really want to be enlightened, just look up the Podesta brother’s art collections……if you can stomach it…..and don’t do it on your work computer either…….icky.

The I.T staff of the Democrat National Committee, under the leadership of Debbie-Wasserman-Shultz was compromised by, and under the direction of, a Pakistani foreign national named Imran Awan……who tried to flee back to his native home before he was caught.  At the same time, news that Clinton and her Podesta hitmen “rigged” the primaries…………weird, huh? Have you heard of Seth Rich, who worked for the DNC until he allegedly leaked documents to WikiLeaks, and then was shot five times in the back during a “robbery” where not even his watch was stolen? Or what about Fusion GPS? The company hired by Hillary Clinton to fabricate and circulate  – for over 9 million dollars – a false intelligence dossier claiming that Trump paid for pee-pee hookers in Russia…..that is now the only reason for a “Special Prosecutor” investigating “Russian collusion”? Should we think about how now we know the name, “Uranium One”? You know, the purchase of 20 percent of our uranium by Russian interests brokered and approved by Clinton’s State Department? Do you think you would have heard about any of these things if Clinton\Jeb\Establishment candidate had been elected? Really?

Another strange thing is what is happening in Saudi Arabia. Maybe you missed it, but since Trump’s visit there, some big changes have been happening. 11 Princes, 10 Ministers, and a score of other former officials have been arrested…….including the brother of Bin-Laden, in a power-shift that is destroying the CIA/Bush power structure that has been the status quo for decades………some say it could be the beginning of a major war between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Huh……I bet you haven’t heard much about that, have you? I wonder why that would be? It seems that people in power all over the world are now in the crosshairs, and I think it’s no coincidence.

However you want to think about it, big things are happening. Events and attitudes are leading up to something. The confluence of citizen journalism, technology, and distrust are creating an atmosphere where it is becoming impossible to maintain a strangle-hold on information. Large Government bureaucracies are finding themselves increasingly exposed, and so are their politician cronies and spokespeople.  I urge each and every one of you to take some time, if it’s important to you – and especially if you plan on speaking about it – and carefully look at what is happening around you…..from a disinterested, safe distance. There are hidden hands at work, and the evidence of their machinations can now be seen if you look closely enough. After all, it’s no accident that YouTube and other online platforms have recently been caught manipulating and censoring information, is it?

The things I have mentioned are just a fraction of the events swirling around us………you have to decide for yourself to find the truth in them……if you’re up to it, that is.

Unpleasant Fiction

The Democrats managed to grab a couple of governorships yesterday, and the coverage of their victories has been predictably propagandized by their Media attack dogs. I expected that…….I also expected the response from the supposedly “conservative” Fox news, Weekly Standard, National Review, The Blaze and other assorted NeverTrump Establishment sell-outs.

Since yesterday I have heard much about how this was a repudiation of Trump and his agenda. Let me clue you in something if you haven’t figured it out by now: The Republican party is as corrupt, Progressive, and made up of double-digit IQ morons as the Democrat party. For years I have used the word “Uniparty” to describe this collection of tyrannical boobs, and never has it been more evident than in the last 12 months. They are all in agreement over socializing every aspect of your life through the power of Government, and they have advanced nothing but that agenda for decades. What the Republicans in our Bureaucratic nightmare don’t seem willing to understand is that they are hated……..absolutely despised…………. just like their Dem cohorts.

Ed Gillespie lost his bid for Governor of Virginia, and to me the reason is clear: He is a life-long Bush family servant and apologist. He is another nepotistic, crony politician who sold his soul to the fake patriots of the Establishment. Gillespie has been on his knees for the Bush’s “New World Order” since before he could shave, and the idea that the BlueDog Dems who voted for Trump would vote for a Dubya protégé is laughable. Chris Christie’s buddy lost in New Jersey also, and it wasn’t because of a Trump “repudiation”, it was because he was tied to Christie……..closed-beach-lounging, Obama-hugging, bridge-closing, unsuccessful-gastric-bypass Chris Christie. So, two big-government, amnesty desiring, lying Republicans lost in two blue states. What the idiot Bush spokesmen aren’t saying is that, at least in Gillespie’s case, is that the loss was less dramatic than predicted……but who needs facts when you have the Globalist propaganda machine?

Here’s a prediction: if Republicans continue to obstruct Trump and his agenda, and they also continue to fail in passing ONE PIECE OF LEGISLATION that they promised and previously voted for under the safety of an Obama veto, they will lose big in 2018 and beyond. And it won’t be because people have suddenly become Democrats, it will be because they will stay home. When it comes to Establishment Republicans it will be, “fool me once, shame on you…..fool me a thousand times and go to hell”.  The Swamp is tripling down on trying to teach the American public a harsh lesson: that your vote only matters when it is for them, and that anyone non-ruling class that dares run for office must be absolutely destroyed.

I really want you to think about this for a minute……….93 percent of all Media coverage, 100 percent of the Entertainment and Sports world, and every “think-tank” publication on the planet has been hostile to Trump. Every dirty cop in the FBI and every Deepstate hack and Judge appointed by Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama has spent the last year attempting to manufacture false charges and evidence against a sitting President. The level of hate and derangement is truly astonishing, and it has consequences. For instance, have you connected the dots on all of the violence that has occurred recently? Steve Scalise was shot by an angry Progressive Democrat. Riots in the streets and on college campuses perpetrated and instigated by anti-free speech Progressives. 59 patriotic country music fans murdered and hundreds more injured by an angry Trump hater ( now obviously being covered up ) with super-shady connections and pedophile family members. Rand Paul was violently attacked and injured by another angry liberal…….and finally, and sadly, 26 churchgoers – including little children – murdered by a wife and child beating, CNN-watching, Atheist/Antifa wannabe – who was a self-described Social Justice Warrior that thought people with Christian faith were “stupid”.

It isn’t safe to say what you believe, admit who you voted for, or hold true to your values and common sense. Every day you are told that Trump is a pig, an idiot, a slob, a moron, dangerous, a threat to civil liberties, a madman with nukes, an evil genius, a soon-to-be-dictator, a fake, a fraud, a foreign spy, a bully, an illiterate, a nutcase, a racist, a white supremacist, a psychopath, an election stealer, a misogynist, a hater of gays and little children, and even a bad dresser. And don’t forget………….by extension you are too. And even though Trump was dually-elected by a majority of States, he entered office with a 30 percent approval rating that has been sinking lower ever since……..and the record-low unemployment, record consumer outlook, record market gains, the defeat of ISIS, and restored deterrence abroad is just a super-delayed result of the super-awesome policies of the super-handsome and super-genius Barry Obama and his faithful and patriotic sidekick and penniless-public-servant Hillary Clinton. Eat it, Trump!

Who Is Keyser Grope’?

As of this morning, Kevin Spacey has been accused by eight of his “House of Cards” coworkers of being a “sexual predator”, and creating a “toxic” atmosphere on set. Evidently his behavior was primarily focused on young, male assistants and set workers. My guess is that his actions were not only tolerated due to his star-power, but were also well-known among Hollywood insiders, just like Harvey Weinstein.

Being successful and prominent in LaLaLand  brings with it a special kind of power…….if you’re behind the scenes you can make or break careers, and if you’re in front of the camera you receive the worshipful adoration of countless people whom you’ve never met. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure some of the trappings of this kind of success are a pain, but I also have no doubt whatsoever that the perks outweigh the bad……otherwise people wouldn’t clamor for the life that the Entertainment Biz can provide. And let’s be honest……many without fame would gladly be abused in whatever way required in order to achieve it…..perhaps that’s why these kind of accusations haven’t seen the light of day before now.

I’m not surprised that people with power and fame abuse it……..because they are just people, and without a moral compass people can be very wicked and self-serving. Even folks who don’t start out that way seem to end up corrupted or burnt out. It sounds a lot like Washington, D.C., doesn’t it? Well, that’s because it is. In fact, if you were a fly on the wall at a big liberal fundraiser in Hollywood, you would see the Weinsteins, Clintons, and Spaceys of the world laughing it up and exchanging tales of perversion and corruption.

It’s a shame, really. Kevin Spacey is indeed a talented actor, and I have enjoyed his portrayal of President Underwood on “House of Cards”, in addition to his other roles over the years. It’s also sad that Spacey chose to use the opportunity to “hide under the rainbow” of his homosexuality as a defense of his behavior. Odd, because it does a disservice to gay people by linking them to child abuse…….he must not care much for “the community”, huh?

Hollywood must be a literal fear factory right now. The Social Justice Virus that millennials and progressives have spread throughout our country is finally doing what it was designed to do………kill the host. Progressivism is thoroughly infected with a sickness of its own creation, and the hilarious irony is that it is now suffering from the symptoms. No one can be politically correct enough, non-misogynistic enough, anti-American enough, anti-patriarchy enough, sexual-identity-spectrum approving enough, non-cultural-appropriating enough, and so on and so forth into infinity. No one can be safe due to their “privilege”. Those that thought their actions and predilections would remain hidden and tolerated because of their position and power are waking up on silk sheets in cold sweats. To get biblical about it…….”they have sown the wind, and will reap the whirlwind”.
