What Will the World Look Like on January 22nd 2021?

According to current US federal law the man who will be President of the United States for the next four years will be sworn in on January 20th 2021.  Who that man will be is the subject of the most heated debate this country has seen in the last two hundred years of presidential elections.  So far, the electoral college has declared Joe Biden to be the winner of the presidential election.  It only remains for the Congress to certify this declaration on January 6th.  Whether there is a way to convince Congress to intervene against the Electoral College vote is what is currently holding the entire country mesmerized.

President Trump has stated on numerous occasions that he has sufficient proof of electoral fraud to permit the election results to be put aside.  Whether that proof is overwhelming enough to convince most of the American people is the first question.  The second question is, even if this proof is convincing, will Congress act on this proof and overturn the Electoral College result?  As with everyone else I am waiting impatiently for the event.  January 6th is ten days away.  When and how will this proof be presented?  Will it be broadcast to the whole nation or will it be transmitted to the Supreme Court?  Will it be incontestable or just testimony that cannot be verified independently?

The whole situation is so unprecedented that until recently I would have declared the very idea of Congress taking such unprecedented action as inconceivable.  But I would also have thought that the fraudulent voting activities that openly went on in the swing states inconceivable too.  And the idea that a corrupt dementia patient will be installed in the White House by means of an openly stolen election is so outrageous I would be willing to accept just about any series of events that would prevent that disaster from taking place.

At the same time I think the Left would resist any attempt to prevent Biden from reaching the White House by any means necessary, up to and including armed insurrection.  This makes it even more mind boggling to imagine what kind of proof would be so unassailable that spineless politicians would risk their precious necks to do the right thing.

For all of these reasons and because of how many legal challenges have already been shot down by the courts it seems like it would take a certified miracle to fix this heinous crime that is wending its way inexorably toward fruition.  But I want to believe that it will happen.  Because otherwise it will be an enormous step in the total unwinding of the normal reality I used to believe we inhabited.

If the United States has descended all the way down to banana republic status then everything else that is dependent on the United States being a great and stable nation is also without foundation.  Think of the things that rest on the certainty that the United States is the unshakable moorings of our civilization.  The mutual defense organizations like NATO are founded on the stability and strength of the United States and its military and economic might.  The US dollar is the reserve currency of the whole world.  It is based on the integrity that the US government has in the eyes of the American nation.  If all of these things are just fairy tales that the American elites tell the peasants and now those peasants have stopped believing them what might not happen?

What if a disgruntled American general decides to hijack a bunch of ICBM silos and declare himself the Emperor of Middle America?  How soon before the Russians and the Chinese start to think that lobbing a rogue missile into Manhattan would be an excellent way to get a nuclear civil war going?

We live in very troubled times.  And it’s pretty clear that most of our leaders are useless.  When you look back in history, times like these seem to breed revolution and then tyrants of one stripe or another.  It’s genuinely depressing to think about but it has to be faced.  We will need an extraordinary amount of luck to navigate the next few years without crashing on the reefs that these troubled seas contain.  But I suppose it won’t be boring.

Right Wing Guide to Living in the Democratic People’s Republic of America – Part 1

This is just an introduction to my new project.  Previously I believed the goal was to wake up enough normal Americans to be able to shake off the craziness that had been foisted on us by the UniParty.  I now see that the UniParty has no intention to allow that kind of thing to happen.  And nothing as unimportant as a majority of people demanding it would prevent them from maintaining their strangle hold on power at all levels of society.

So, to my way of thinking I have to perform an analysis to determine what is my best strategy to deal with the world as it really is.  A while ago I said there were several broad options if it turned out that normal Americans were outnumbered at the polls.  From my way of thinking this is actually worse.  We’re not outnumbered we’ve been outmaneuvered.  But either way it boils down to the same situation.  We will be under a federal government that has no interest in constitutional rights and will impose its will on us in a particularly offensive way.

In that series of posts, I said the options were to fold, flee or fight.  Those are still the main choices.  What I’ll do in this series is look at the specifics of what that means for normal people.  For instance, if you intend to continue to live in a blue state how will you protect your children from the influence of the school systems and provide them with the information they’ll need to avoid the pitfalls that are built into life in the heart of the Leftist beast.  You’ll have to explain to them what they’ll be forced to do to avoid losing an education, a job or a business.  If someone decides they want to fight back against the system that will require knowing what resources and organizations exist to aid in that effort.  And if moving to a red state is your plan, I’ll provide what I can find about that option.

I fully expect that this series will be a slow work in progress but I figured I’d announce it because, let’s face it, these people we’re up against aren’t going anywhere and if we’re serious about fighting them we have more than our work cut out for us.  This is a generational project that will need to be pursued in an organized and methodical way.  I think that the only hope going forward is for President Trump to act as the founder of a new political movement, maybe even a political party, the whole focus of which is to restore the Constitutional freedoms that have been taken away from us.

A movement is needed with plenty of support from the rich and powerful to start organizing the resources, needed to fight back against the Elitists that have taken away our way of life.  We’ll need our own social media and news companies; we’ll need smart lawyers to defend us and we’ll need governors and state attorneys general and legislatures to pass and enforce laws to protect us from the Left.

So that’s a start off the top of my head.  I’ll add to this as I have a chance to do some research.

What Do You Call a Country Like This?

It is December 1st 2020 so I am fervently hoping that President Trump will be successful in forcing the courts and the legislatures to acknowledge the overwhelming evidence of wholesale fraud and assign him the election win.  But regardless of the outcome of that effort we have to come to grips with the fact that the country we thought we lived in does not exist.

Now that’s a bold statement but I think it’s undeniably true.  The last election was not a squeaker that could have turned on the margin of error.  Unlike 2016 President Trump had massive new support in the swing states that he needed to win.  And that was obviously apparent right up until the switch was pulled in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin.  In each state President Trump was decisively ahead when the counting was shut down and the observers were sent home and the fake ballots were trucked in by the hundreds of thousands and the fake count was performed without honest witnesses to confirm that the ballots were legitimate.  All the other jazz about the electronic systems in place may be as horrendous as they say.  That’s harder for me to know about.  But the obvious fraud is what we’re left with.

Now what kind of country do these sorts of things happen in?  Well, you can think of a whole bunch of names.  Oligarchy is the sophisticated name.  When I was growing up it would have been called a banana republic.  The term that I think is appropriate is gangster state.  Without a doubt we haven’t reached the level of brutality that Saddam Hussein was famous for but it’s really only a matter of degree or maybe a more sophisticated sense of taste.  After all, the FBI, the Justice Department and the judiciary tortured General Flynn and others of the Trump team psychologically for more than four years with no evidence of a crime having been committed and the media has used concerted propaganda campaigns, supported by the social media companies against half the country for almost a decade.  And now that the Left has made riot, looting and arson business as usual I can’t see how anyone can claim that there is a qualitative difference between what goes on in the United States and what goes on in Venezuela or Syria.  Say what you like, you can’t call that kind of regime democratic or even legitimate.  When the law is enforced selectively and based on partisan advantage then tyranny and dictatorship are perfectly accurate descriptions for that type of regime.

And that is my whole point for this post.  Things should be called by their right names.  Words shouldn’t hide reality.  Calling a place, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is just making believe that the word democratic doesn’t mean rule by the people.  So, let’s call the place we live in by what it truly is.  Let’s call it the Democratic People’s Republic of America.  I wonder if Kim Jong-Un could send one of those stylish outfits he wears to Creepy Uncle Joe.  It would look just about right on the Dear Leader.

What Does Joe Biden Say About the Democrat Party?

The Democrats have invested everything they could into getting Joe Biden into the White House.  They were willing to commit open fraud on an industrial scale and thereby throw away any remaining credibility they may have had with half the population.  They can no longer pose as the loyal opposition.  They are a crime syndicate.  And they did this in order to install this doddering, sleazy, dim-witted stooge in the Oval Office.  Why did they do it?

The only answer that I could come up with is because they were sure they could.  The Democrats are no longer concerned about appearing to be part of a legitimate political party that operates along the lines of the laws of the United States of America.  They are exactly the kind of corrupt machine politicians that run places like Chicago and Philadelphia.  In these places, citizens don’t vote.  Votes are manufactured in the back room and the results are given to the media to proclaim.  If the other side objects you just pick a judge from your stable of bought and paid for robe-wearers to declare that all is in order, nothing to see here and move along.

They think that they’ve got the whole thing so nailed down that it won’t be necessary to select leaders that pass the smell test that even Democrats want.  They must be sure that Biden will be given a pass by the CIA and FBI on his graft and influence peddling.  Even after it was put on display through the good offices of everyone’s favorite crackhead Hunter Biden.  Even Joe’s constant gaffes and brain freezes aren’t a problem.  Apparently, they’re confident that a dementia patient running the most powerful nation on Earth is not even a consideration.  That must mean that actual decision making will occur elsewhere.

So here we are.  They don’t care what we think.  They don’t even care what we know.  They’ve got a program to run and as far as they’re concerned, we’re not going to make any difference at all.  Maybe they’re wrong.  Maybe there are enough people in places like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin to take back their states from the crooks.  And maybe there aren’t.  But either way the days of making believe are over.  In the months and years to come we’ll be looking for leaders who aren’t making believe either.  No more nonsense about cooperation and bipartisanship.

And going along with not making believe anymore, let’s not bother to make believe we think Biden and Harris are legitimate leaders that deserve respect.  If they were respectable, they’d be ashamed to allow this obvious fraud to be perpetrated on their behalf.  And so, should the state legislatures in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin.  And so, should the Supreme Court justices.  So, if any of these officials refuses to correct the crimes that have been perpetrated against the American people then equally these are people that have no legitimacy any longer.

If President Trump is unable to get the states and the Supreme Court to reverse this outrageous crime then he should refuse to participate in the sham of the Inauguration.  Having to sit there and listen to Joe Biden and John Roberts mouth blasphemies over a Bible should be more than any honest man should have to stand.

Well, I’ll end this thing here.  What Joe Biden tells us about our enemies is that they think so little of us and what we can do to them that they’ve selected a witless worm to deconstruct our country.  And in return we should treat them with the contempt that they deserve.  Creepy Uncle Joe and Willie Brown’s Ho are the least disrespectful names they’ll get from me.  And if the worst occurs and these two pathogens end up in charge, then it is the duty of any Republican who wants our votes to do anything and everything to frustrate their every effort.

24NOV2020 – OCF Update

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Americans out there.  I know we’re all living through the horrors that the Left has cooked up for us.  The lockdowns, the rampaging psychopaths and finally the fraudulent election plot.  It may seem insane to even talk about a happy anything but I refuse to let these horrible people rob me and my family of at least part of the joy that the holiday is supposed to provide.  My family gathering won’t be as large as some years but it will still be joyous and include children and grandchildren and a whole lot of turkey and other fattening food.  I hope to introduce my two year old granddaughter to the March of the Wooden Soldiers, Gulliver’s Travels and the art of getting the larger piece of the wishbone during the contest.  So please make sure to have some joy on Thursday even if it has to be by phone or video call.  After all generations of Americans have had to delay gatherings because of war and other emergencies.  We can hope that the present travesty will be ended some time in the near future if for no other reason than because a vaccine is imminent.

Secondly, I want to say that content may be a little sparse here because of all this merrymaking.  I intend to put out posts as often as possible but usually there is a lull in news and in web traffic during the holidays so the resource and the need may both lag to some degree.  But I intend to put up various reviews of movies, tv shows, books and other items that I think will be of general interest.  And I will continue to look for content from guest contributors.  So if you have something you’d like to contribute leave a note in the comments and I’ll get back to you.

Thirdly and lastly, I’d like to just address the election situation.  Many gloom and doomers seem extremely eager to throw in the towel.  They call me every day with some latest disaster that they hope will convince me that I must join them in the ranks of the defeated.  I’ve asked several of them whether they’ll get some kind of early bird special bonus for conceding now rather than wait for the actual resolution.  I have to say I really don’t understand why they’re in a hurry to concede the election to Joe Biden.  That seems like a situation that I would want to delay for as long as humanly possible.  But to each his own.  Anyway, I’ll allow President Trump and his legal team all the time they need to plead their case before the Supreme Court.  I think that anyone who claims to know in advance how that decision will be made is mistaken.  My opinion, and it is just that, my opinion, is that the odds are exactly 50/50.  So I’d prefer to enjoy Thanksgiving and let the process play out.  There’s plenty of time to react to the facts on the ground once they are.  So I’ll wait until there’s something interesting to discuss and then I will.

Who are You Going to Believe, Cable News Talking Heads or Your Own Damn Lying Eyes?

The Democrats, the Media and probably the Deep State have performed two miracles.  One is they committed election fraud on a scale that even Chicago’s late Mayor Richard Daley would never have dreamed of.  And the second miracle is they have given sight to the blind.  They performed these two miracles simultaneously right there in front of us in the early hours of November 4th.  The first of these events I knew of immediately upon seeing it.  Seeing President Trump up by 800,000 votes in Pennsylvania and then hearing that somehow, he was going to lose the state I could see that fraud so massive as to be unexplainable by rational voting patterns was being perpetrated.  The second miracle came to my attention this week.  I have spoken to people who have been able to believe even into late 2020 that we’re still living in normal times and that the people on the right-wing are alarmists and exaggerating the scope of the problems we face.  They were sure that with just the right tweaks to the agendas on the Left and Right we could all be singing kumbaya in the middle.  Well, I spoke with one of them this week and he said straight out, “You were right about everything.”  Seeing the election and then hearing the evidence on the scope of the election fraud finally broke through his shell and drew blood.  He was blind but now he sees.

Based on human nature I know that these recent converts are going to be very uncomfortable with the reality they’ve just awakened to.  It’s painful to know you don’t live in the democracy you thought you did.  This will lead to all kinds of dithering and rationalizing and confusion.  But he’s taken the first step to facing facts and figuring out how to deal with the reality he now recognizes.  And maybe he decides to cave into the Left.  But at least it will have to be a conscious decision and I won’t have to hear anymore excuses for why things always happen the way they do.

How many people did this election wake up?  I’m going to guess that it’s around ten million people.  That equates to about half of the voters in the middle.  These people don’t pay much attention to politics every day but they vote and they watch the election every four years.  They’ll be hard pressed to ignore what they saw.  Even with the networks providing cover for the Democrats there will be enough information getting through to let them know this wasn’t a normal election and that really bad things happened in the vote-counting rooms of the Democrat cities.

For the people who read on this site that’s hardly news.  We have been watching this happen for years and want the courts to do something about it.  We want to see the FBI step in.  And we also know why they haven’t.  But for the sleepwalkers among us this is a revelation.  Their world view is going to change.  And that’s a big damn thing.  And having it happen to so many people and having it happen at the same time as the COVID lockdown and the Antifa/BLM insurrection will exacerbate the outrage they will feel.

So, for any of the recently red-pilled brethren showing up at this site, welcome!  We don’t have any magic bullets here.  There are no saviors, no magic road to salvation.  All we have is clarity and camaraderie and news from the front.  We’re all in this for the long haul and we try to reclaim territory one square inch at a time.  Welcome aboard.

19NOV2020 – Status Report on the Election and the Country

Here we are going into the third week after the election and, if anything, things are getting weirder.  By all indications the fraud that took place was more organized than any typical urban election shenanigans.  The rigged computer software and the manufacturing of bogus election ballots on the order of hundreds of thousands of votes looks to be fraud on a scale that even jaded judges will be hesitant to ignore.

The election certifiers are even getting into the act.  The votes for Detroit have been called into question by the two Republican certifiers and I have to assume that we are going to see confidence in the voting process drop to rock bottom levels.  Currently 52% of Republican voters surveyed think that the Democrats stole the election and as things become clearer that number will probably rise to 95%.

President Trump is getting legal help from several people who have shown themselves to be unafraid of the media circus and aren’t worried about being blacklisted by the Democrats and the Never Trump Republicans.  The big question mark will be the Supreme Court.  In my mind what the President needs is to get the information out to the American public and then let public opinion force the Justice Department and the courts to do their jobs and look to see what the facts on the ground are.  We’re no longer in the world of the 1960 Election or even the 2000 Election where worry over damaging America’s trust in the institutions of the government is more important than the results of an election.  There is no trust in the institutions of government.  That has now become the operating principle.  If the 72 million people who voted for Donald Trump think they were cheated, which they do, then effectively Joe Biden would be an illegitimate president.  And that will have very serious consequences.  We saw how debilitating the “resistance” to President Trump’s administration was.  I assume that having half the country sure that you are a crook who cheated his way into the White House would render Joe Biden a veritable prisoner in the Oval Office.  Wherever he went he would be booed and hooted at.  I won’t even speculate beyond that point.

On balance I think if President Trump prevails in the election battle the resistance against him will be even more intense than what we have seen up till now.  The only difference is that he has become inured to it and has developed strategies and located personnel who can cope with it.  In either case we have now reached the point of complete polarization in the country.  The proportion of people who haven’t joined one side or the other is minimal.  The relationship between the two sides has reached the point of boiling animosity and open conflict including murder has already occurred along the geographic lines where the most radical partisans on both sides find themselves juxtaposed, like Portland and Kenosha.

I can’t see that things are going to calm down regardless of how the election is decided.  From my point of view, it is important to start thinking about living in a country that will become more and more disunited.  All the things we’ve been saying about developing our own platforms and institutions is becoming more relevant and crucial.  One thing that is clear is that we are living in a treacherous environment.  It is important that people are careful about what they say because everything they say can be heard by everybody in the world.  Be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to information that can help you avoid trouble.  Protect those important to you in every way you can.  And most importantly avoid places that you know will be filled with irrational individuals.  Physical danger is now not a conspiracy theorist’s paranoid delusion.  It’s a living breathing reality.

14NOV2020 – OCF Update

Pardon the dearth of posts in the last few days.  Like everyone else I have been pondering on the reality and circumstances of our troubled land.  I was contemplating waiting on the Supreme Court’s decisions on the election fraud appeals being submitted for their decisions.  But I think I will write a essay on the path forward without regard to whether the Supreme Court does its job or not.  I no longer think that further proof is needed to convince the reasonable men among the American people that there is no longer one law that applies to all Americans.  And what we have to decide is what we want to do about that.  That’s what I will be working on.

I also have some more movie reviews.  I have a book review of Jim Butcher’s latest addition to his Dresden Files’ series, “Peace Talks.”  I don’t think I have done reviews of this series before so maybe this will require a review of the series overall as a start.  And as the holidays near I think music and movie reviews for holiday themed works will be forthcoming.

I have been very negligent on the photography front.  I’m still posting photos of the day from back in the summer.  That is because photo work takes a bunch of time to prep.  I keep promising to put together some larger posts on technique and various subjects but I’ve been unable based on time.  I have promised myself I’ll have to do better.  And I will.

And as promised I’ll get guest contributors busy on some things outside of my areas of expertise.

So once again apologies for the drought but things will improve.
