The Neverending Eclipse

Each and every day I am struck by the absolute hypocrisy and ignorance of those on the Progressive Left. I watch and listen to people say things that are verifiably insane, yet they are met with serious looks and sympathetic reporting. We, as people of the United States – and by extension people of Western Civilization – are being told that what we see and hear and instinctively know….. is wrong…….and that reason and thought are poor substitutions for adolescent ignorance and childish emotionalism.  Moral authority has been either claimed by Progressives or had it assigned to them by their willing allies in Media, politics, and entertainment. Identity Politics, Class Victimhood, and the ideology of “Intersectionality” is just like the moon when it obscures the sun…….a cold, dark, thoughtless mass that blocks out the rays of enlightened reason.

My last column was a statement against defining people by their color and class, and also a warning about violence being committed in the name of advancing a political agenda.  The funny part, if there is one, is that some of the very folks I was speaking to did not understand the message………and they never will, because willful ignorance is a very strong narcotic, and those in its thrall are never told of its dangers, or of how difficult it is to kick the habit. Since the events that took place in Charlottesville I have discovered, in the course of doing my normal research, that those involved were pawns in a chess game they didn’t realize was being played. For example, I want to know why a man named Brennan Gilmore was the first on the scene – with a recording of the now infamous car-ramming and multiple media interviews afterwards – when he coincidently happens to be a CIA agent. Or how Jason Kessler, the organizer of the “Unite the Right” rally was also an organizer of “Occupy Wall Street” and was a community organizer for Obama – until last November, that is. Weird.  Don’t get me wrong, racists and fascists are still scumbags…..but it is important to note that everyone there – whether they were Black Lives Matter, White supremacists, or Antifa – were all advocating the exact same philosophy. If you are “triggered” by that, I don’t care……..I will “microaggress” all over your delicate sensibilities and love every minute of it.

I’ve written previously about the lack of historical perspective and it’s consequences – you know, that those who don’t know history are bound to repeat it – and yet our society is ramping up its stupidity. Like the warriors of ISIS, the Progressive Left is on an ideological rampage on behalf of it’s religion of Political Correctness……and statues and monuments, even the actual history of events, must be destroyed and wiped away in order to protect us from their “problematic” representations. Let me be as clear as I can possibly be…….. Progressivism is racist, sexist, anti-intellectual, and regressive. To believe in this toxic view of the world you must be everything you claim not to be. Need proof?

Diversity is a main tenet of being a Progressive, it is also touted by companies and government in statements like ” by ensuring a diverse workforce we benefit from everyone’s experiences and viewpoints, blah, blah, blah”. That offends me…..because it is bullshite.  Diversity is State-sanctioned, structural, and societal-approved racism. The idea of “privilege” is an ignorant, racist thought process. Intersectionality is also sexist and racist…….as it is the theory that every victim-group – LGBTQQ2+, “people of color”, women, etc……all “intersect” with one thing: namely that each tribe is the victim of a white man, or of “whiteness”.  Huh? Let me get this straight……..basing hiring, college admissions, and societal importance on skin color – regardless of performance – isn’t racist? Let me pose this question to you: If you found out you had cancer…..God forbid…..what qualifications would you look for in a Doctor? Skill? Accomplishments? Success stories? If you answered yes to any of those then you are, according to Progressive-Regressives,  a Nazi/Fascist. If you run a business, large or small, and you hire people based on how good they are at the job you are attempting to staff, without regard to gender and race, you are a Nazi/Fascist. In fact, if you advocate a merit-based philosophy when engaging a service or rating an individual’s performance……you are a Nazi/Fascist. If you want Government and the Private Sector to judge everyone equally under the law, regardless of color, belief, sex, religion, or material worth……….you guessed it…….you’re a Nazi/Fascist. Is it just me, or is a pattern forming?

The goal of all of this theatre and drama is to eliminate Free Speech. The United States is the only country that has ever existed on the face of the Earth that has recognized Free Speech as something granted by birth and not by Government. When Free Speech falls, everything else becomes irrelevant. Liberals used to be lauded for advocating the following ideal: ” I don’t agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” What happened to that? If you are an activist for anything other than color-blind, equal-under-the-law, meritocracy…….you are by default everything you claim to despise. I’ll say it again……if you believe in special treatment or special punishment based on appearance and genetics…..YOU are the bigot. If you think that violence is justified in response to someone’s words or philosophy, no matter how awful you think that philosophy is………you are the fascist. It remains to be seen if the eclipse of rationality occurring now is permanent or reversible…….but based on what I can gather, we may be forever immersed in darkness.

Meet The Resistance

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a column titled “There Will Be Blood”, and it looks like I was unfortunately right………..again. Today Rep. Steve Scalise, the Republican Majority Whip, was gunned down by a peace-loving Bernie Sanders fan. This is just a taste of the “Resistance” that Progressives and their Establishment buddies have been brewing and stirring since last November, when the world as they know it was turned upside-down by the election of Donald Trump. Are you sick of it yet?

Months of circus-men like Stephen Colbert, Seth Myers, and Bill Maher shilling their click-bait soundbites of Trump incest fantasies and faux outrage have had the desired effect. Months of intellectually dishonest and phony drama-peddling by the likes of Chuck Schumer, Maxine “James Brown Wig” Waters, “Crazy” Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Cory Booker, Keith “aka Shaun King” Ellison, and the first full Native-American member of Congress – Elizabeth Warren…have taken their toll on the duped electorate they cater to.

ISIS-like beheadings of Trump by Kathy Griffin, CNN’s Resa “Taqiya” Aslan tweets, and Fortune 500-funded plays in Central Park showing an assassinated Trump, nightly Rachel Maddow insanity……………along with Hollywood celebrities calling for “punching them in the face” and more, have all led to what happened today…….. in my opinion.  Convincing millions of mentally-challenged, politically-misinformed boobs that the reason for their candidate losing, and in turn their logic-less Progressive agenda losing, was somehow collusion and interference between Trump and the shadowy Russians – has “come home to roost” today.

The reaction of Progressives in Government has been perfunctory and weak so far……and I don’t expect that to change. Reaction of Progressives on social media has been pretty disgusting….there’s a lot of rainbow-flag profiles tweeting and texting their glee, and after all the stoking and baiting over the last six months, who is surprised? The Clinton-hack Governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, didn’t even make it 5 minutes into his response before blaming “guns” ( for killing 93 million Americans a day, Ha! ) and not the rhetoric and divisiveness of his own cadre of cronies.

So far the hard-working, patriotic people who voted for change last November have remained mostly positive and peaceful………while they have been assaulted in virtually every venue – news/entertainment/music/social media – by Progressive, Social Justice bullies…… that seek to censor your speech, nullify your vote, and now……..use violence to achieve their ends.  The left has become an army of cry-bullies, and it is probably too late for the instigators, like Hillary Clinton and Barry Obama, to walk-back the incitement they have committed………my only hopes are two-fold – Firstly, that the peace and temperament of the Silent Majority continues, and secondly, that Progressives are swayed from continuing their tantrums……..because we are at a precarious point in our history, and it would take far more to prevent another Civil War than to soon make it a reality. And that’s one observation I sincerely hope is incorrect.

There Will Be Blood

Many of you may be asking yourselves, “when will it stop?”.  The answer is never………not until “it” ends in violence. There is a non-stop assault on the President of The United States by the unelected intelligence agencies, the unelected and unaccountable press, and the unelected special interests that fund virtually every member of Congress, and it will not end well. It has gotten so bad that every American should be outraged, even if you hate Trump’s policies ( more likely it’s hate of his personality and a lack of understanding that Clinton lost – but that’s ok too ) you should realize that regardless of whom is in the White House, this ongoing sedition on behalf of the aforementioned parties can only end in disaster. I can honestly say that even if Hillary Clinton had been elected, and was being treated in the same fashion, my opinion would be the same…….and so would my conclusions.

Let me explain where the road that we are on leads to: War. No matter which way you slice it, the only outcome will be very unpleasant for all of us, even the idiots that are currently consumed and deformed by their political hate and blind-rage hypocrisy. Leftist Progs in media, government, and entertainment have decided, subconsciously or not, to put politics above the very security of this country and the safety and prosperity of its citizens – all because they didn’t get their way.  When it comes to Russia……..they thought the same thing as the media up until election day……namely that Hillary would be president……and anything they did or didn’t do was to sow trouble for their main competitor. Every story involving Russia is crap, and the fact that so many are so willing to swallow every steaming nugget is a testament to their political delusion…..and the ones feeding them the scat know it.

Our corrupt members of congress ( both parties ) know the Russia stuff is dumb, but they also know that their voters are as well, and they are using this narrative to avoid doing anything that would stop their ride on the gravy train. When the Russia narrative fails, they use their fall-back plan of leaking and fabricating hourly “scandals” as the excuse to do nothing. Whom can be bothered to govern by lowering corporate tax rates, reforming immigration and healthcare, and curbing spending while they’re busy chasing turds down the sewer pipe of fake news?  Pretty damned convenient, isn’t it?

I know many of you may be wondering what I think of the latest hysteria regarding James Comey’s supposed and unseen handwritten “memo”, and to be honest, it’s just another example of what I just explained. Comey was and is incompetent and untrustworthy, and everyone should be happy that he’s gone. The hissyfits happening about the story in the Washington Post are pretty hilarious…..considering it’s based on an anonymous phone call where an anonymous “source” read ( yes, read…. not faxed or emailed or anything else ) an alleged handwritten memo, written allegedly by Comey, that alleged that Trump allegedly said  “I hope you let it go” regarding Mike Flynn’s alleged Russian ties. Yawns, sighs, and eye rolls…… that’s all this non-story gets from me. If you disagree with me, I have been read an anonymous memo by an anonymous source that says your wrong.

The truth is that if the Progressive Left and their Neo-Con pals got what they wanted, which would be Trump going on live TV, signing an executive order naming Hillary dictator-for-life, and then committing suicide………the outcome would still be a bad one for them in the end. Unless something changes, and I don’t think it will, the only logical end to the aggressively divisive agenda of these people will be either a civil war, or another world war……..or both at the same time. In any case, whether it’s in the cities of the European Continent, the sands of the Middle East, or the streets of America…………….there will be blood.

Arguing Punctuation

I’m not the greatest writer. I use a conversational style that is incongruous with strict adherence to grammar and  structure, and as such my columns tend to convey a conversational tone. In theory, I am speaking to you much the same way that I would if we were sitting across from each other. The points I make are rooted in observable truth and common sense, so I get some leeway from my readers on style. My reasoning is simple: I would rather speak to you than condescend to you, because so much of what we consume as media is designed to be intentionally intellectually dishonest, and to obscure fact for the sake of ideology.

The last two years, leading all the way up to the election of Donald Trump, were a referendum on the behavior of the progressive left.  Regardless of which wing of the Uniparty you had claimed allegiance to, many of you knew that something was wrong. Sure, government has always been filled with self-serving oafs, power-mad dolts, and corrupt thieves…..and the public has yawned and complained, and then always gone back to sleep. The ridiculous things being discussed in entertainment and politics were just the same old-same old, and as long as none of it really mattered to your daily life, then who cared?

Then something began to happen during the Bush administration…….it was a partisanship  ratcheted up to a level we hadn’t seen before. Election recounts, inflammatory media opining in the place of news, a terror attack that changed the world, and a greedy, corrupt bureaucracy all too eager to use all of these things to encroach into every aspect of our lives- using emerging technologies to spy on each of us in the name of “Homeland Security”. The United States adopted the unfortunate philosophy of war as nation-building, instead of war for territory, resources, or defense. Many of us began to question the wisdom and motivations of those we had placed in charge over us, and Barack Obama used that, as well as once in a lifetime politically-correct race politics, to fulfill his lifetime quest for personal power.

What happened next was the antithesis of the supposedly-liberal candidate Obama’s platform…………..a continuation of the soft tyranny began by the originators of the modern “New World Order”, the Bush family. Instead of dissolving the Patriot Act, Obama used it as a personal attack mechanism. As Edward Snowden exposed to the world, now the security apparatus of the NSA was a tool to blackmail, spy, and destroy any who opposed the Imperial Executive and it’s overreach of power. At the same time, the media and entertainment communities started to buy what they were selling…..that we are all the uber-progressive left, that half of the public is gay, a minority, and a victim of some type of patriarchal, entrenched white power structure.

The decisions and policies of the party in power reflected the false logic of identity politics and moral equivocation……apology tours, promoting an islamic takeover of previously secular nations ( the much promoted and disastrous ‘Arab Spring” ), bowing to hostile foreign interests in the name of rejecting American hegemony, instituting an unconstitutional mandate for each citizen to purchase a specific product ( Obamacare ), and using speech codes and media cover to run an unwanted progressive domestic agenda roughshod over the public.  All to the clapping seals of The Two Coasts, media, and progressive academics.

The problem, by late 2014, was that Obama and others in government had done what people rabidly convinced of the validity of their position always do……….they reached too far. It’s one thing to ask people to accept policies they disagree with after those policies are presented and debated in the light of day, and another to obfuscate, lie and intimidate in order to pass an unwanted agenda that runs contrary to our national identity and sovereignty. Voting for the staus-quo became a non-starter for many………….. because it had become obvious that the left would continue its ruinous games, and that the right would continue to shrivel and shrink at the tiniest accusation of ( insert politically correct code word or social justice meme ).

Electing Trump was my only protest against the America I know continuing to become the America the progressives want.  As a fan of The Enlightenment, I value individual freedom above all else. The degeneration of personal freedom over the last decade or so is directly relative to the advancing agendas of the left, and is inexorably tied to the degeneration of personal responsibility and the concept of individual identity. The simple concepts of a national identity and culture, assimilation, defending and maintaining borders, non-interventionism, and personal freedom and responsibility have become toxic to the progressive movement………and their collective reaction to the centrist, moderate Trump are proof of it.  Only 8 years of an ideologue like Obama could make people respond to Trump the way that they are: Partisan bureaucrats, unelected and put in place by partisan democrats and neo-cons, are in open revolt against at what at any other time in history would be seen as a very moderate president.

I have yet to get an answer from any of my detractors or critics about what they are so adamantly resisting.  Who has lost their constitutional rights? Who has become a victim of this new president? It seems that being angry at the election requires one to operate on many provably false assumptions……that there are no differences in the people and cultures of the world, that nations can exist without borders, that citizenship can retain its value when it has no cost or definition, that catering education to the lowest-common-denominator produces smarter students, that there is such a thing as “free trade”, that lifetime politicians are smarter than you, and that using real fascism to prevent imaginary fascism is a righteous belief. Toss in some bullsqueeze like spending billions to make all public restrooms friendly to the mentally ill, “Russian hacking” claims from exposed corrupt politicians, endless social engineering in rejection to biology, and you get the prog’s thinking.

My advice to those that are angry would be to remove the beam from their own eyes before removing the speck from others. As long as there are those that think Trump’s conversational blunders and bad jokes are the problem instead of confederate “sanctuary cities” and 20 trillion in debt, we will hear their harping…….but we don’t have to listen anymore. When the devout progressive demands the same release of documents from their politicians, and transparency in their actions………not just Trump,  I  will believe them. When the mainstream media spends as much time questioning the sanity and senility of people like Nancy Pelosi, who called Trump “President Bush” and Maxine Waters, who in the same press conference claimed “Putin invaded, uh…..Korea”……or Hank Johnson – who asked an Admiral in the Navy if he was concerned about Guam “flipping over” due to the weight of an American Naval Base……then I will take seriously their reporting of Trump’s gaffes. When the left condemns concepts such as “hatespeech” and groups such as the “antifas” goons, I  will take  them seriously……..and when I get an argument about the content of what I have written instead of my punctuation, I’ll take that seriously, too.
