Burning It Down

It seems that no matter the institution, the process, the person, or the subject, the Progressive Left has decided that the pursuit of naked and temporary power is to be put above any other consideration.  It began when Hillary Clinton lost the election she had not only purchased, but felt entitled to. Suddenly Russia was responsible for “hacking” and “interfering” in an election….and millions of hysterical idiots rallied to that dubious war cry. No matter that the “hacking and interference” has been identified as buying some Facebook ads for both candidates…you know, the same thing Democrats and Republicans do in far larger numbers and with shadier financiers…but who cares about facts when you have a ridiculous narrative to proffer?

In the almost two years since the electoral defeat of the Uniparty Establishment, we have been subject to a never-ending campaign of personal attack, violence, and extreme and hateful rhetoric – as bad or worse than in the year preceding the Civil War – all brought to us by elected and unelected Progressives. The same people whom have spent the last decade attempting to deconstruct and rebuild America in their sick and Godless image are not content to wait for another election, or to wait for their mass-media propagandizing to have the desired effect, and now they have sunk to ever-increasing levels of hypocrisy and adolescence to bring about their ruinous rule.

The FBI? The DOJ? The IRS? The CIA? The Federal Court?  Ruined, politicized, weaponized and sullied by the petty and immature Obama administration.  Virtually every Federal Agency is now populated by seditious and literally stupid Millennials and Progressives, whom when aren’t adulterously boffing each other on the taxpayer dime, are acting out their Confederate Wet Dreams by sabotaging Constitutional Government and the will of the people who make up our Republic. Who is our defender, then? Other than poor Donald Trump, whom even with all of his flaws has borne the brunt of an assault that would shrivel and defeat any other human being, who is in the position to fight for the law and culture of America? Officially it’s the flaccid and impotent Jeff Sessions. Where is little Jeff, anyway? While Bush family money and the Obama/Clinton criminal entity known as the “DeepState” burn every tradition and ethical standard ever made, Little Jeff Sessions sits on his ass doing nothing. Oh, wait, he has ramped up Federal raids on marijuana dispensaries in states that have constitutionally voted to legalize the substance. The only thing Lil’ Jeff seems capable of doing is stealing the non-FDIC insured profits from state-licensed businesses and sending steroid-pumped, jackbooted stormtroopers into local pot stores. God Almighty, what a piece of sh!t you are, Jeff……do us all a favor, take one for the team, and remove yourself from further CO2 production.

Anyway, no matter who it is, or what it is, if Trump does it…the Uniparty Establishment closes ranks and plays their stupid games….knowing that rich spoiled white women, the unproductive and paid “minorities”, and those that have their hand perpetually out for free stuff will go right along with the clown-show. Republicans in government play the feckless and moronic fools, while Democrat Progressives play the tired and transparent race/gender/tribe/victim card into infinity.

Now it’s the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. I don’t even like Kavanaugh. I think he’s a Bush family drone, similar to the fake and Lyin’ Ted Cruz ( He doesn’t seem to realize his non-support of Trump and loyalty to the disgusting Bushes has sunk his role as Texas’ fake conservative Senator – but that’s for another day ) . So, this life-long supernerd Brett Kavanaugh allegedly and supposedly engaged in stuff at parties that I – as a decades-old veteran of the music industry and amateur Rock star – didn’t even see at drug-fueled, no-holds-barred, hedonistic gatherings.  I don’t buy it. I don’t buy  “recovered memories”, nor do I buy that 50+ year old women talk like a 19-year-old college student complete with affect and ignorance, as in the case of Blasey-Ford……who has obviously been coached and instructed as to her “testimony” and how to deliver it ( explains the delay, doesn’t it? ). What a joke. In the current age of “MeToo” stupidity, the accusers of Kavanaugh are brainwashed morons whom have decided that awkward teenage gropings are the same as being gang-banged at gunpoint. Listening to Blasey-Ford’s childish testimony I weep for the state of our society. At best she’s a deeply damaged product of modern feminism and progressivism, that dictates you must be a victim of an Eeevil-Huwhite-Man in some form or another, and at worst she’s a paid provocateur enlisted to destroy a political opponent.

Every person or thing standing in the way of the Progressives must be destroyed. Such is the state of the #Resistance. Resist truth, logic, facts, and maturity. Resist more money in your pocket. Resist restored deterrence with our enemies. Resist fair trade with other nations. Resist peace in the Korean peninsula. Resist sanity. Resist ethics in government. Resist the will of the people who put you in power and put money in your coffers. Resist God. In other words, the Progressive Establishment is content to burn down the world we live in…….. just to rule over the ashes. Those we have put in government have decided that they would rather rule over Hell instead of being powerless in Heaven. Are we to stand by while they burn it all down around us?

You Don’t Have To Live Like A Refugee

 

 

“refugees” atop the U.S. border fence

A caravan of supposed and alleged “refugees” has spent the last few months winding its way through Central America and Mexico in order to cross the border of the United States. A group of American lawyers, through the traitorous “Pueblos Sin Fronteras”, is responsible for organizing and funding this invasion, with the help of the Mexican government. Contrary to the never-ending depositing of fecal material done by the Media, this “caravan” is not made up of women and children nor is it a collection of victims of American Oppression. This is nothing more, and nothing less, than more of the same global Establishment’s efforts to continue to flood the ignorant and spoiled America with more 3rd world dependents…..that will vote and lobby for the same corruption they are fleeing.

Take a look at the image heading this essay. There they are, sitting atop the dilapidated fence that serves as the United States border. What is that they’re waving, you ask? Why, that’s the Honduran flag. When perusing the opinion pieces that pass for news these days, I see a common theme that’s not commented on. Here’s another picture of another heroic “refugee” crossing into the U.S…..have you noticed that, again, you see what can only be described as an adult male proudly draped in……….you guessed it, the Honduran flag? Weird.

Color me confused…..but this doesn’t match the narrative I see and hear daily from the Media. I hear about women and children abused and tortured by their country of origin…….desperately running for their lives into the U.S. in order to seek “asylum” and, you guessed it, “do the jobs that Americans just won’t do”. Once again, and this seems to be the case on literally every issue, politicians and media are saying and reporting lies and fantasy, specifically formulated to get an emotional reaction from the moronic American public. “Don’t believe what you see”, they say……..it’s all about “the children”. What a great trick the progressive Uniparty has pulled off in the last two decades…….fostering and fulminating a millions-strong foreign invasion of an uneducated and unassimilated horde that embraces government tyranny and a welfare check. The best part of this trick is the significant portion of the actual citizenry that have fallen for this con. They’re on Twitter, Facebook, and internet forums patting themselves on the back and calling anyone who disagrees with them a white supremacist. It really is quite something to see half of the people who will suffer from this invasion hatefully advocating for it.

I have questions for these “refugees” and their American advocates……why can’t you change the government and political landscape of your country of origin? If the culture and country you are fleeing is so murderous and horrible, why do you proudly and arrogantly wave its flag? If you love America’s “land of opportunity” so much, why have you not attempted to learn its language, laws, and customs? When did asylum become a “right”? And if it is, why is it only a “right” for soon-to-be burdens on the State that make their way to a land crossing into the U.S.?  Is there any group, from any country, that doesn’t have a “right” to asylum? Is there any limit to the number of, or type of, “refugees” that have this newly found “right”?

This is part of a larger movement to permanently change the make-up and electorate of the United States. It has been under way for a couple of decades now, and it has been completely successful. The combination of historically ignorant, narcissistic, and virtue-signaling American citizens and culturally ignorant, narcissistic, and entitled foreign invaders has worked its magic like a charm. Would you like to know what would make me believe, and even support, these “refugees”? Instead of the clenched and raised fists, the hateful faces spouting lawyer-trained talking points, and the proud waving of the Honduran flag while angrily refusing the language and culture of the country they demand to enter ……………..imagine a hopeful and grateful group of families, desperate to embrace and assimilate into the land they hope to inhabit, their hands proudly clutching an American flag. Picture them learning and studying the culture, customs, and language of their desired new home during their long trek…..ready to become proud Americans while rejecting the tribalism and tyranny of the country they came from. Now that would be something, wouldn’t it?  If you think that’s a crazy idea, then maybe you can tell me which one of the pictures below is most assuredly not like the other.

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?

The Land Of The Lost

When I started writing this column a few years ago, I had an earnest hope that with logic and wit I could open the eyes and minds of the most ignorant among us. The problem I have discovered is that those I have been attempting to engage have neither logic nor wit. It’s infuriating, really. Oddly, my anger and frustration at Progs that I don’t personally know is turning into a kind of pitied sadness and boredom……..while my pity and tolerance for the Progressives I DO personally know is turning into angry frustration and apathy.

Well, I’m tired of giving to Lefties what they are incapable of giving to anyone else, namely a polite benefit-of-the-doubt…….and you should be too. I think maybe it’s best, in all honesty. Why have the demonstrably stupid philosophies of the college campus, the corporate “diversity” industry, and millennial groupthink infected every aspect of our society and discourse? I’ll tell you why……….because lefty progressives are shameless and loud in their stupidity. They are not quiet, respectful, and looking to debate their ideas on level ground. They actually believe they have the “right” to be as intolerant, ignorant, racist, and violent as they can be……because of all the “injustice” they have been brainwashed into thinking exists.

The defense of these under-developed and damaged people is that words and ideas they don’t agree with, or find offensive, are equal to violence and intolerance, and violence and intolerance require actions of elevated violence and intolerance as a response. See how that works? Kind of like saying, “punch a Nazi”, and then labeling everyone you don’t agree with as a “Nazi” and proceeding to punch them. Voila! Social Justice in action! If they say something that is offensive, rude, stupid, and not backed up by history and logic…….it’s ok because they (in their depression-med/ADHD-med shriveled brains) hold the moral high ground. Yet if you happen to mildly offend one of these creatures, a public apology and prostrate position are required.

  Even asking a question of one of these folks, or asking for details on one of their ridiculous positions sends them into a rage of stuttering, flop-sweated retorts of “racist!”, “bully!”, or the worst thing they can think of to say……”privileged white man!”. The problem is that I do have questions for the Progressives and I can’t get them answered. Questions like:

 If you hate corporations and find them to be the root of all evil, why are you in total, mindless support of the three biggest, monopolistic corporate entities on the planet…………namely Apple, Facebook, and the United States Bureaucratic Government? All three of these evil corporations are the epitome of control-without-competition and greed……..yet what is in your pocket, what is your homepage, and who is it you are wanting to control every aspect of your – and in turn everyone else’s – life?

If you are against racism, whether individual or systematic, how can you possibly embrace concepts like “affirmative-action”, “white privilege”, “black lives matter”, “diversity”, and “unconscious bias”? Have you heard of the concept of “two wrongs don’t make a right”?  Are you aware of the hypocrisy of lumping all white people into a group that all thinks the same, votes the same, wants the same, and all have been a wrongful beneficiary of an unconscious racism whether they know it or not? How do you justify attempting to enforce your racism and prejudice by claiming it is a response to existing racism and prejudice?

  If you are horrified and moved to action to remove the right to keep and bear arms because of horrible things like the Vegas Massacre……….where is your outrage at inner-city violence and murder committed by criminals with guns – illegal guns – on a daily/weekly/monthly basis in places like Chicago? Can you explain how removing the weapons from law-abiding citizens would stop these awful events? Can you see the danger in only allowing the Government to possess weapons? Are you aware that when you cite countries like Australia for gun control, they have a population of 22 million people – not almost 400 million like the United States? Do you know that giving me “gun violence statistics” from places like Australia without adjusting for population is ignorant? Do you know that out of the around 32,000 gun deaths in the U.S. every year, roughly 22,000 are suicides – about 1000 more are accidental – and the leftovers are the real number?

I honestly think the dissolution of our society is real, rapid, and perhaps not reversible. I know that it is if those that don’t agree with the Progressive Lunacy remain quiet and tolerant. Sane people are losing the cultural war, big time. The reason is simple……the left is united in its suicidal quest to tear down everything “America” because they hate it……and they hate it because they have been taught to by mindless morons in public education.  Instead of knowing that this country is the greatest experiment in human liberty and freedom, some are intent on an all-or-nothing focus on it’s imperfections…….when nothing and no one can survive that kind of viewpoint. I truly wish that more people would understand their own history, heritage, and culture instead of burning it down in the name of their perceived grievance. I also wish that the lefties I know, whom are either wealthy and connected  (though all the wealthy people I know like to delude themselves that they are “middle class”) or brainwashed and lower-income – would ask themselves whose pawns they are and why…….and just what it is they plan on replacing our society with after they have destroyed it. Enforced Government equality – at the point of a gun by the way, or did you not know that’s where Government power comes from? –  of thought, results, gender, sex, perception, ideas, possessions, wealth, and status………or else. A nightmare Land of The Lost.

The Circle and the Straight Line

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.

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.

The Party of Illusion

Have you heard the news? Republicans in the House of Representatives and the Senate voted for, and passed, complete and total repeal of Obamacare. Awesome, right? Not really. I don’t mean passing measures to limit it, or defund it, or alter it, or call it dirty names, that stuff has happened over forty times………..no, I mean complete repeal. The only problem with this news is that this happened way back in December of 2015.

Cue the clowns:  Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and the rest of the Grand Ole Puppet Show then waddled in front of the cameras to proudly announce that they had “kept their promise” and repealed O-care. Too bad that it would never survive Obama’s veto pen……….and too bad that the Republicans, all of them, knew that before they even voted. They also knew that most people are dumb and have the memory of goldfish, so for them, it was a big win……for the rest of us, not so much.

You may have heard that the Republicans just “weren’t prepared” for repealing Obamacare, or that the “White House is in disarray” and they can’t stop their overthrow of an elected president…..oops! I mean Russia investigations……long enough to do what they evidently had no problem doing, repeatedly, while Obama was in office. I’ll tell you what they weren’t prepared for: Trump winning, that’s what.  In the whirlwind of fake news and political assassination since last November, what has been buried and lost is that the entire world expected Hillary Clinton to be president…….I mean, she corrupted her way to the top, she paid her bribes…….oops again! I mean dues……hostile foreign entities had already bought her off through the Clinton Foundation, etc……so why would Congressional Republicans be any different?

The reason the Republicans can’t repeal Obamacare is simple……they don’t want to. Sure, all of the puppets in the show are playing their parts, the “conservatives” want this, the “moderates” want that, blah-blah-blah, but the truth is that they didn’t stop it when they could have, like the Progressives are stopping things now, because Obamacare is the greatest expansion of government power in United States history, and the people we have in Congress are the government, so why would you expect them to limit themselves?  It’s time for people to realize once and for all that the days of there being “conservatives” and “liberals” are over – if they ever even existed – and that now there is only the Progressive Establishment. There are different levels of that Establishment, yes…….but on a whole it is unified in its permanent bureaucratic control over us…….and it’s falling apart because of the election of Donald Trump. What you are seeing in the Media and reading in National Review and the New York Times is testament.

All of this leads me to make one point. If you consider yourself, conservative or Republican, you may be upset that your views aren’t being represented….and you’re right. I have good and bad news for you, bad news first: What you define as “conservative” is no longer applicable to the future of American politics. The numbers just aren’t there, especially when you realize that Millennials are now the largest single voting bloc. Now for the good news: there are millions out there like me, and we represent a revival and reinvigoration of the American Spirit and all that it represents – individual liberty, legal immigration, property rights, capitalism, personal responsibility, and a chauvinism about what is American Culture and Western Civilization…….and why it is better than anything else that has ever come before. We agree on more than we don’t, I’d wager.   People like John McCain, who has served himself in congress for 35 years (!!) and Lindsey Graham, who has done the same for 25 years, are not the future……they are the pitiable past. They are “The Swamp”, and they don’t understand that a train is coming, and the choice is between getting on board, getting out of the way……..or getting run down under its wheels.
