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?

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.
