The Storm

We have a serious problem. Western society has become bifurcated and brittle, and instead of being split along usual political right/left lines, it is divided between the normal and the deranged. The normal are trying to live their lives, raise their kids, keep their jobs, and maintain the relationships they have. The deranged are obsessed with their adolescent-style feelings, skin color, sex, denying logic, and destroying everything around them.  I spent the day watching CNN recently, and I kid you not, there was not a single second of programming dedicated to relating the news or current events……….instead, it was a gossip-filled, petty, and angry diatribe of opinion and innuendo, all set on hourly repeat. Now, that’s not news to most of you, but it gave me a thought that sent shivers down my spine – what are the consumers of this poison going to do?

See, there is a storm coming. In fact, the storm is already raging in Washington, DC, unbeknownst to most, involving the Progressive agents of the previous administration and the few patriots left in our bureaucratic state.  The crimes committed by the previous stewards of our nation are legion, and when the election went the “wrong” way, a massive effort to remove the incoming administration began. Due to the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, many of the national cable news outlets are propaganda agencies for the unelected and corrupt globalists inside our government. The constant drumbeat of “Trump is ( insert awful thing here ) and so are the people who voted for him”, is for a reason, and it isn’t because those things are true, or even believed, but because it is the only course they have for what’s coming.

What’s coming, you say? The exposure of the corrupt and criminal elements inside our government and the crimes of people like Susan Rice, Obama, Valerie Jarret, and the Clintons. Their collusion with Silicon Valley, foreign agents, and scumbag law/opposition research firms has already been brought to light…….and with each revelation the defenders of the corrupt – like CNN – become more shrill and defamatory. Ask yourself: Why does CNN and MSNBC spend days covering Trump’s Diet Coke demands – yet in 8 years had no story or pictures about Obama’s 2-pack a day smoking habit? Why do people like Jake Tapper, Anderson Pooper, and the hideous and revolting Brian Stelter endlessly opine about the President’s “fitness”, yet just a year and half ago Hillary’s fits, faints, comas, blood clots, and seizure glasses were “not relevant” and “over the line”? They are whipping up the partisan and ignorant among us into a rage that is based on raw emotion and “feelings”, and we’ve already seen some of the results – The shooting of Steve Scalise, the attack on Rand Paul, the assaults on Trump supporters, and the increasingly hateful rhetoric calling for violence in response to any ideas contrary to progressive social justice. Also throw in a bunch of hoax racist graffiti and attacks proven to be committed by people of color, for good measure.  All of these things perpetrated by unhinged lefties radicalized by what they see and hear on CNN and social media.

Now back to my original question: What are these people going to do? When their progressive saints, and especially their progressive messiah Obama, are brought up on charges of violating and abusing the justice system by – among other things – using fake opposition research of a political campaign to spy on, and issue warrants for, American citizens and their opponents…….how will they react? Will CNN stop manufacturing hit-pieces, or will they tell their mindless worshippers to not believe the evidence and riot? Will Hillary Clinton, Obama, and their acolytes admit their crimes, or will they talk of “resisting” and “persisting”? Will progressive-appointed Federal judges follow the law in prosecuting the criminals? I think not…….and that’s the point of all of the hyper-negative coverage of the new administration. You know at least one person with Trump Derangement Syndrome…….when they are presented with absolute evidence of how wrong they are and how duped they have been, do you think they will accept it or even believe it? Again, I think not.

The Establishment has not been able to stop us from lowering unemployment and increasing GDP, nor have they been successful in stalling the markets or stopping tax cuts…….but they have insured a bounty of return when it comes to manufacturing hate. Blacks, liberals, and Millennials have been convinced of their victimhood, and even though they are beneficiaries of the changes since the 2016 election – not to mention America’s capitalism and liberty – they have been poisoned by their entertainment icons, sports heroes, political leaders, and professors. When the storm grows beyond sealed indictments and leaked testimony and covers the country, there will be millions of lost and weaponized people, who literally know nothing but their hate, taking to the streets. They will deny the truth of what is happening the same way they deny logic, nature, and common sense. They have all been told that everyone agrees with them, and that what they “feel” is undeniable truth…….and sadly they have been set up for a National nervous breakdown when the thunder rolls. How will you weather the storm?

Of Holes And Fake Outrage

  Gnashing of teeth. Rending of garments. Wringing of hands. Wetting of beds.  Sucking of thumbs. Furrowing of brows. Crapping of pants.

These are just a few of the reactions to the report of Lil’ Dick Durbin, who claims that President Trump asked – in a private meeting – why “they” ( the politicians in attendance) want to bring in people from “sh!thole” countries. The hetero-phobic primetime lineup on CNN became even more hyper, claiming “racism!” and “unfit!”.

Well, for one…….I laughed my ass off. After I regained my composure and unwrapped the actual news of the day, I stopped laughing and starting fuming. Why? Because the purveyors of Fake Outrage that inhabit the idiot box aren’t just phonies and liars, they are a clear and present danger to the people of The United States.

Just in case you don’t know what “virtue signaling” is, I’ll give you a brief primer: Virtue Signaling is the practice of loudly and vociferously, and almost always falsely,  claiming you either love or hate something based on the proposition that others will hear you and acknowledge what a virtuous person you are. Need an example? Say, for instance, you have a “friend” on Facebook who is outraged at the position of Trump and his supporters on illegal immigration – and they frequently post their opinion about how awful , racist, and hateful the folks they disagree with are – yet they do nothing, spend nothing, and sacrifice nothing in support of their position. They don’t really care, and are likely so self-absorbed, ignorant, and shallow that they are simply paying lip-service to what they perceive as the popular public opinion in order to appear virtuous and moral.

I just described most of the people you know, and all of the people on all of cable news. It’s one of the reasons I have such contempt for those on the left. Hearing the same people who advocate for the most base and perverse ideas in our society claiming to be outraged at the use of the term “sh!thole countries” is preposterous.  First of all, let’s have a little IQ test: What does “racist” mean? Let’s say that I say to you, ” we need to get these illegal Mexicans out of here…..”.  If you think that phrase is “racist”, then you are an ignorant boob. Mexican is a nationality not a race. Somalian is a nationality not a race.  If you cannot understand this fact then you are an idiot, and any debate or conversation with you must be undertaken with that fact in mind.

I’m asking the leftists reading this the following questions: Is there anyone from anywhere that should not be granted entry into the United States? Is being born the only qualification for access to America’s Welfare State? Are the people from another place and culture more important than you, your children and grandchildren? What number of illegal and legal immigrants per year are acceptable to you? Are you aware that 70 million plus foreign born people have emigrated here, under chain migration, in the last 30 years? Is it hard to breathe with your head up your sh!thole?

The truth that leftists, SJW’s, neocons, and progressives fail to realize is that not all cultures are the same, and some are better than others. In our current climate of non-assimilation and equivocation we have no room for error. In case you didn’t know, a lot of the places and countries in this world are dumpster fires.

Haiti is a giant sh!thole.

Muslim countries are hellish sh!tholes.

Much of Central and South America is an illiterate sh!thole.

Virtually the entire continent of Africa is a fetid sh!thole.

North Korea and rural China are sh!tholes.

Want to prove me wrong? Go to these places and tell me otherwise. Then tell me how importing the folks who made their home countries sh!tholes helps America. Then tell me how the same people who advocate for cutting the privates off of little kids in the name of “transgendering”, cutting global population for “climate change”,  and destroying our liberty in the name of political correctness are experts in immigration. After you’re done with that, explain how the same culture that celebrates pimpin’ hos and “freeing the nipple”, as well as the use of crudity and profanity in all of our decrepit and spiritually bankrupt entertainment, is prepared to pass moral judgement on the rest of us.  What a bunch of frauds. Every day they grow more ridiculous and exposed in their fake moral panic……..and it would be funny if it wasn’t so dangerous.

Because it is one thing to have free immigration to jobs. It is another thing to have free immigration to welfare, and you cannot have both. If you have a welfare state, if you have a state in which every resident is promised a certain minimal level of income, regardless of whether he works or not, produces it or not……then it really is an impossible thing. – Milton Friedman

Oprah’s Favorite Things

Another excuse for Hollywood morons to dress fancy and applaud themselves took place the other night, and it was predictably laughable. I’m not sure what the name of this one was as they happen often and for every conceivable purpose, but I think it was the Golden Globes. Evidently the attendees were in mourning for the death-by-suicide of their own industry, and as such were festooned in black for the evening. I wasn’t surprised by much of the event’s festivities, as it was hosted by the fetal-alcohol-syndrome-success-story Seth Myers…..yet the apex of the night was a 10 minute long self-congratulation and warning to the beta-males in the audience performed by The Oprah Winfrey. The response of the progressives? The advice of NBC? Let’s put her up for president.

I have to admit that I have some experience when it comes to The Oprah.  My better half has had a subscription to her magazine for years, and my daily trips to the can usually find me looking at her latest cover-shoot and learning all about her latest weight-loss plan. I don’t know if they work, but the vapid, self congratulatory tone, in addition to a freshly photoshopped image of The O, seem to speed along my movements just fine. So, with my knowledge of all things Oprah in hand, I will impart my reasons why she won’t be president……….and it’s because of my list of Oprah’s Favorite Things.

Privacy. Though Miss Winfrey has been in the public eye non-stop for decades, nobody knows much about her private life. She has carefully crafted an image throughout her career, and done it masterfully. The problem is that under the scrutiny of a run for high office, her absolute control of information will cease to exist. For instance, what’s the deal with Stedman Graham? Sure, we all probably know he’s Oprah’s long time “partner”, but what the hell does that mean? For years there have been stories about their weirdness……and rumors of where her best pal Gayle King fits into the picture. Sorry for giving you that mental image, by the way. Toss in Oprah’s penchant for endorsing fraud religions like “The Secret” and her revolving guru/life-coach list and we’ve got some juicy stuff that she has kept under wraps.

Clout. Oprah has long been able to move things behind the scenes. She has starred in movies, produced movies, and hobnobbed with the Hollywood elite. If she likes a project or idea, those ideas usually get a green light to production. Great, you say? Well, there’s just one problem…….she has worked closely with Harvey Weinstein in order to do those things. There are a multitude of pictures and video clips of her giving him more sugar than she does Stedman, and no doubt she demonstrably knew of his predilections. Will she be able to use her clout to squash the stories of her complicity in his abuses once she throws her hat in the ring for the White House? I doubt it.

Empire. Oprah Winfrey has worked long and hard to build her massive, billion dollar empire. Through absolute control she has managed her brand throughout the years……being the final word in every decision whether it comes to her TV show, her magazines, her OWN network, et cetera. She is the face, the brain, and the owner of all of her properties. There is one problem with this: She is not married and has no heirs. Where will this control freak divest her interests? There is no Oprah Winfrey Jr., nor is there a Stedman Winfrey II…….so where will she offload her empire? With all of the neverending attacks on Trump during his campaign insisting he part with his holdings, as well as the attempt to charge him with violating the Emoluments clause, how can Oprah maintain ownership and control of all that she has built?

Goodwill. Oprah has an enormous amount of goodwill stored up with the general public. From giving away cars to “empowering women”, she has been a marketing genius. Everyone loves her, right? In fact, her Golden Globes speech was received the way that it was because of this stored cache of goodwill. She has provably been complicit in the crimes of Harvey Weinstein, and yet it remains unspoken. Her African girls’ school has had more than one sex scandal, including but not limited to a female teacher molesting her own students. Additionally, how many people has she pissed off in her quest to be the richest, most famous woman on the planet? The idea that there is not a horde of disgruntled former employees and show guests who have a less-than-favorable opinion is a farcical one. A presidential run would tarnish and muddy the gleaming O in a way she has never experienced nor dealt with. Is she ready to destroy her legacy just to appease the rudderless and floundering Progressive left?

There is another factor that would endanger the realization of this Prog-fantasy that hasn’t been addressed…….and it’s the competition. Not Trump or the republican party, either. The democrat party politicians who have their own dreams of running will not be idle like in previous election seasons. There are lots of people who were told to sit down and wait their turn while Hillary Clinton undertook her disastrous campaign, and they either will not, or due to age cannot, sit 2020 out and step aside for a political nobody. The Uniparty has screamed long and loud about the folly of electing the “unqualified and inexperienced” Trump……..how will those soundbites play if Winfrey takes the bait?

Then there is the elephant in the room when it comes to race and race relations. Obama, the left, and the Media has done more to destroy the relationship between races than has even been realized, with their non-stop race baiting and division sowed for cheap political gain.  There was a point in Oprah’s speech at the Golden Globes that reminded me of how tired it has all become. She retold the horror story of a poor black woman raped and murdered by white men, and how those men got away with it. It’s an awful event in history, but it occurred over 73 years ago. Not just before I was born, but before even my father was. In 2018, what is the purpose of relating this sad tale? What did I, or anyone else outside a graveyard, have to do with this injustice? Is America ready to go back to this kind of disgusting use of past tragedy for politics? The only defense from the left to criticism of Obama was the scream of “Racist!”……and since his departure it has only intensified……are you ready to return to that course? This is really just another attempt at finding an identity by Progressives, as they have spent the last 2 years in a deluded hissy fit. If you take one thing away from the speculation and desire about an Oprah run for president, it’s this: that is how empty, directionless, and absolutely desperate these people are.

Delusion And Illusion

2017 is over, and a new year is upon us. As 2018 dawns, real positive things are happening, but you would be hard-pressed to know about them. The fog of delusion that overtook the media and culture last year is not lifting…….in fact, it is becoming more pervasive, toxic, and noxious. I am increasingly worried, and frankly angry, at the perception of events by the people around me and their commentary.  At first I thought that many  people were just ignorant, and that when they learned of, or saw first-hand, the results of America’s change in course, they would adjust their perceptions and bias. I have been profoundly incorrect. In fact, I have never been more wrong, and my miscalculation has left me with a bitterness that is difficult to shake. The delusion of so many – including people I know personally – is so ingrained and poisonous that I am losing any hope for them.

From Progressives to Christian-Conservatives, I hear many of the same tropes, which I think says a lot, but I digress. I hear things like “privilege”, “patriarchy”, and “racist”. I read things about how dirty words – traded between people in private – are the equivalent of actual physical violence and assault. I see never-ending coverage, for over a year, predicting financial disaster and dictatorship…….and each day that it doesn’t happen those predictions are then glossed-over, forgotten, and given a fresh coat of bullsqueeze for the next day. I am presented with the proposition that it is acceptable and judicious to have unelected bureaucrats relentlessly pursue those that pose a threat to their power with the unlimited force of government. It seems that many now believe in the philosophy of Stalin’s secret police – “show me the man and I’ll find you the crime”. There are lots of things said about “not being presidential”…….all from people who could not meet the very standard they apply to those they disagree with, and neither could their icons, leaders, and heroes.

Even as almost every citizen benefits from the events of the past year, many march along in lockstep in the thrall of their delusion…….following the failed pied-pipers of yesterday right over the suicidal cliff they have created for themselves. Starting in February, over 80 percent of people in the United States will take home more money in their paycheck……….and in turn will receive double the tax “refund” for 2018. If they are employed, those that employ them just had their tax rate cut from 35 to 21 percent. If your employer hasn’t told you of how this benefits them, and you, then ask yourself……..why? Are those that run the company you work for stupid? Are they ignorant of the massive windfall they just received from the current administration? No, they aren’t. The real answer is more insidious: they have become malignant, twisted, and malformed by propaganda and lies. They are either too cowardly to publicly acknowledge the many benefits of the past year, or worse they are willfully blind due to their hateful delusion.

There are evidently millions of people who, like livestock, are wearing blinders and being led by the yoke by cynical idealogues that know better.  In response to the record growth of the stock market, record low unemployment, record tax cuts, or restored deterrence abroad – I am met with angry, meaningless bromides or rote regurgitation of the lies of CNN, MSNBC, and other media…..without any critical thought or self-examination. It seems that the common thread in these people is the absolute ignorance of history and a refusal to use logic…….all in favor of the outrage that was manufactured for them for cheap political gain. When did the same folks who decried the evil intelligence agencies, and their jack-booted stormtroopers in federal law enforcement, become their biggest cheerleaders?

Thankfully 2017 is over, but have no doubt – 2018 will be even crazier. The panic and dishonesty of those that have held power over us is only going to get worse. Even as the nation continues to prosper as the new tax code takes effect, the pretentious and panting elite will become even more unhinged.  Each of us must make a choice…….will America choose the path of financial solvency, restored foreign deterrence, common sense, and successful governance…………or will we choose the path of identity politics, stagnation, debt, gender fluidity, cultural degradation, virtue signaling, the dissolution of the 1st and 2nd amendments, speech codes, illegal immigration, and turning kids into trannies? There are things that the administration has done that I don’t agree with, like staying in Syria, adding troops to Afghanistan, not building the wall, and the continuing presence of the abominable and repugnant Jeff Sessions as Attorney General………but overall the last year was incredibly successful, even with the enormous and overwhelming negative press and their collusion with corrupt activists in government.

Stay tuned…….it’s going to be a bumpy ride. Oh, and Happy New Year.
