The Day After Chauvin

Yesterday I found the news so depressing that I wasn’t in the mood to write.  It’s hard to paint what happened in the Chauvin trial in anything but the blackest terms.  It was not unexpected but the reality of it brought home just how far we’ve fallen from the days of even our fathers.

But some good comes of even the most painful events.  The primary good will be that black crime will go essentially unchecked in all the Democrat controlled jurisdictions.  No policeman is going to arrest a black man for any reason whatsoever.  Why would he?  If the criminal steals a pair of sneakers or a diamond ring subduing him is a dangerous threat to his own life.  And if he injures the criminal he’ll be prosecuted.  If the black criminal kills someone, the correct procedure is put up the crime scene tape around the body and call the CSI team to take fingerprints and DNA evidence that can be recorded and stored away to prove that a good job was done.  And as for drug crimes, please don’t make me laugh.  Drugs are the solution.  Once the whole population is completely dosed there will be a lot less complaining about crime.  So, the Democrats will have effectively eliminated law enforcement

And that will be a very educational development.  Granted, it will cause incredible misery.  And that will be true in both the black neighborhoods and the other areas.  The knock-on effects will be white (and yellow and brown) flight from the cities and even the inner suburbs by everyone who can.  It will also polarize all the other ethnicities against the black population.  Basically, people will be reacting to the reality of a population that no longer is subject to law enforcement.  Even the Hispanic areas will be aware that there will no longer be a break on the kind of inner-city violence that was held in check by the police.

Dementia Joe plans to try to expand this to the red states by using the Justice Department as a weapon to attack any city that tries to use law enforcement to control crime perpetrated by black criminals.  It will be interesting to see if the red state governors are smart and strong enough to prevent this maneuver.  I know that Ron DeSantis in Florida has put together an anti-rioting law that will allow his state to fight back if a local mayor tries to create a BLM riot situation.

But I expect that places like Atlanta and St. Louis will explode this summer and the feds will do their best to punish the police departments in those cities.  I expect that we’ll see the white cops in all these cities retiring at a pretty good clip.  As I said before I’d be really gratified if one of these BLM parties gets out of control and burns down one of the cities before they realize what they are doing.  Minneapolis or Portland would be my obvious favorites but New York or Chicago would also be great.  We’ll see.

So, I’ve gotten over my discouragement.  I’ve begun looking at what I’ll have to do to move in the future and I spend all my time concentrating on the things and the people that are important to me and only use whatever time is necessary to make sure I avoid all the evil and stupid people that are currently in charge of the former United States of America.  But one thing is sure.  They can stop playing the National Anthem in the Blue States.  In places like Minneapolis, “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave,” is just a hollow joke.

Will There Be a Last Straw?

Lately, as the outrages pile up, I’ve been wondering about something.  Let me explain.  The Left is rioting and assaulting people for two reasons.  The first is morale.  All of these atrocities thrill and motivate the crazies on the Fringe Left and at the same time outrage and depress all the normal people on the Right.  The second reason is they are desperate to elicit a violent reaction from the Right.  They want National Guardsmen or federal agents called in by the President or the Governor of a red state to fire into a crowd and give them something they can call Kent State.  Kent State was the name of a college in Ohio that back in the 1960s had an incident where an anti-war demonstration got out of hand and a National Guardsman ended up firing into a crowd and four protesters were killed.  Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, a popular but politically radical music group of the time, used it as the inspiration for a song that had the refrain “four dead in O-hi-o.”  This song was the anthem of those times and in the same way I’m sure those psychopaths in Portland are hoping to trigger a federal agent into firing into a crowd when they throw Molotov cocktails at and point lasers at the eyes of these agents.  And that is why they put the women at the front of their crowds.  Their deaths are much more exciting for the newspapers and tv stations.

But besides the chance of a government incident, what are the odds that no one will reach the point where anger translates into a either a spontaneous or a premeditated reaction?  To be totally honest, with the level of provocation being provided on a daily basis, I’m sort of amazed it hasn’t already happened.  I figure eventually one of these “demonstrations” will attack someone who either has a gun or has had enough military training that one of the Antifa twig boys will end up at ambient temperature.  And when this does happen, I expect the blue city or state jurisdiction will prosecute the self-defender with the same rabid disregard for evidence and common sense that we saw with the Treyvon Martin and Michael Brown cases.  And I also expect an incident like this to trigger another spasm of looting, burning and killing.

Maybe it will happen in Minnesota or Washington or Oregon.  Or maybe it will happen in Austin, Texas or some other blue city in a red state.  And what the news will tell you is that a white nationalist went on a rampage.  Because of the pathetic nature of the Antifa groups I expect that at most one or two people will be shot and the rest will stampede away to get CNN to come and report on the “massacre.”  But regardless of the exact outcome that will give the Left what they want so badly, it will give them the white racist devil they so badly need to justify the madness they’ve unleashed since George Floyd became a very unlikely saint.

But unfortunately, time is running out.  November 3rd is ten weeks away and the summer is waning rapidly.  The really best rioting weather is in the heat of summer.  And now that the police won’t bother to arrest anyone for anything it’s getting harder to get attention.  This needs to happen before Election Day and preferably before school starts because Antifa is a creature of the campus.  For that reason, I expect to see an especially ugly next couple of weeks as the black clad losers pull out all the stops in their mission to get some of their useful idiots shot.

So, you see I’m of two minds.  I think it’s within the flip of a coin.  It’s almost a random event.  Will the most determined crazies finally bump into a guy that has had enough.  I’m almost not sure I’d prefer it didn’t happen.  A part of me wants to see the good guy make a stand.  I feel as if it would be a rallying cry against the madness we have descended into.  Even if it threw away the election for us.  It still might be the best thing.  Then I think again and say no.  Don’t let them provoke a response.  Win the election and then let our side look for the provocateurs and provide them with nice long jail terms.  Honestly, my head tells me one thing and my gut tells me the reverse.

What do you think?

Will the Provocations by Antifa and BLM Finally Lead to a Violent Reaction?

The 2020 General Election Debates

If the world we live in today resembled the way it was even a year or two ago I would have had a series of humor posts trying to create my satirical/farcical take on what a Trump/Biden or Pence/Harris debate would be.  But it’s no longer possible to write satire or even farce.  No sooner would I commit to paper some absurd outrage by Biden or Harris than one of them would blow it away with something much crazier.  It is impossible to parody these people.  They are living cartoons, or in Biden’s case, almost living.  If I had him walk on stage and start playing with his ear wax, he’d do me one better and start picking his nose.  If I had Harris breaking into tears and accusing the moderator of verbal assault, she’d one up me by grabbing a gun from her secret service agent and start blasting away at him.  After all, if the mayors of all large cities now routinely condone looting, arson and even murder by certain constituencies then a VP candidate going postal on a debate stage would be hardly a misdemeanor and unworthy of even a passing report in the daily papers and tv news.  So instead of parody let’s just think about what these debates will be.

With respect to the presidential debates, the Trump camp is primarily concerned about the venue and the moderators.  And with good reason.  The history of US presidential debates is an unbroken succession of far-left moderators serving up softball puff questions to the Democrat candidate and asking the Republican candidate whether he is still beating his wife.  Sensibly, President Trump has announced that he will require some representation on the moderator panel by conservative journalists in every debate.  But what if they refuse?  If the Trump camp stands their ground on this point I wouldn’t be surprised if Biden used this as an excuse to skip the debates altogether.  And this is actually a pretty reasonable position for them.  Anyone who has listened to some of Biden’s most recent interviews is acutely aware that Sleepy Joe has lost more than just a little bit off of his fastball.  In fact, he can’t even manage a one bouncer to the plate.  It’s more like a slow dribbler.  I’m thinking that even if President Trump agrees to all the conditions the Democrats demand, that Joe might still opt out.  Because even if the questions were slanted in the extreme, President Trump would still get his message across and Biden would at best, stutter out almost incomprehensible non-sequiturs and at worst drool on himself.  It will be fascinating to see how that negotiation proceeds.

With respect to a Pence/Harris debate, this would be an entirely different situation.  Mike Pence is not a pugnacious orator like the President.  He is a polite soft-spoken gentleman who would not attack a woman in a debate.  He will be at a distinct disadvantage against the histrionic and emotional Harris.  I can remember during her debate performances in the primaries, she would work herself up into an almost hysterical state that looked like she was about to burst into tears.  I could see this unnerving Pence if he were not studied in deflecting this tactic.  Honestly, I think it is critical that the White House team have Pence work through a number of drills to be familiar with the techniques needed to defuse Harris’s emotional style.

Another thing that I think will be key for both sets of debates is to use the support that both Biden and Harris have given to the BLM movement as weapons against them.  And this should begin way before the debates in commercials that include both audio and video of the candidates siding with the rioters against the police.  This is the strongest argument in favor of President Trump and against the Democrats.  It should be used as a club wherever and whenever possible.  The impact in the battleground states like Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Pennsylvania will be enormous.  And it is just possible it will have an impact in some blue states.  It has long been assumed that Oregon and Washington are completely out of reach for Republicans forever.  But after what has been going on in Seattle and Portland I wonder if that is still true.  Putting resources into testing the waters there might be money well spent.  And there is definitely a case to be made for Colorado and New Mexico.

Much is still unclear as to how the debates will play out this election season but as in 2016 the debates are a definite strong suit for President Trump and seeing him stacked up against the remnants of Joe Biden would be a wonderful opportunity to show America just how unprepared Biden is at this point to perform the most critical job on earth.

The Ministries of Truth and Love in Corporate America

In 1984, George Orwell’s overly optimistic vision of what the future totalitarian progressive state would be, he calls the government agency in charge of propaganda, the Ministry of Truth and the Ministry of Love was the agency whose job it was to terrorize and punish the citizens into believing that truth.  In the real world, where things are much worse, instead of just the government, each corporation has now combined those functions into the Human Resources department.  They provide you with the loving truth and you had better pay attention when they do.

Last week on one of my posts someone commented his reply to his employer’s corporate “conversation” about anti-black racism in America. To say he gave them the straight dope would be an understatement.  He gave them both barrels.  And he did this without anonymity.  That’s amazingly brave.  Recently Cisco had a similar townhall meeting to air opinions about the same topic and when some employees said things like “All Lives Matter Not Just Black Lives Matter” they were promptly fired.  LinkedIn had a similar meeting but allowed anonymity and after they received similar answers, they promised to never allow anonymous replies again.  Here’s MSN’s article describing these two events.  Being Microsoft, the article takes the view that the employees got what they deserved.

Now normally I prefer not to quote people I do not respect but for once I think I’ll use Barack Obama’s favorite phrase.  Let’s look at this as a “teachable moment.”

What do we see here?  American corporations pretending to encourage open discussion of a divisive position on race relations that the company has taken and when the employees provide nuanced reasonable opinions that oppose the company’s position, they are declared racists and fired.

What should we learn from this?  First of all, if an American company says they want your opinion, really what they are telling you is what your opinion must be.  Namely, the same opinion as theirs.  Period.  In fact, what they’re expecting you to do is virtue signal just how much more you believe in something than even the company does.  If the company says it’s going to donate a half percent of profits to BLM you should declare that you’re going to donate a full percent or even more of your paycheck to BLM.  If you want to keep working at the company the least you are allowed to do is just stay silent about your true opinion.  And depending on how “woke” the company is, even that may get you fired.

Secondly, corporate America has knuckled under either willingly or unwillingly to the progressive agenda, lock, stock and barrel.  Unless you happen to be a protected class, you are at best a second-class citizen and most likely someone they would rather see leave.

And finally, the way this should get fixed is by a Justice Department investigation that prosecutes one of these companies for civil rights violations at a monetary level that puts the fear of God in every board room in the country.  And the only way that happens is if the President, the DOJ and the Supreme Court are all on our side and want us to be free citizens again.  Whether that is likely to happen sooner or later is hard to say.

But I had a funny idea, call it a thought experiment.  Since the BLM/Antifa model of direct action is apparently perfectly acceptable to the governments of the various states involved would it be equally okay if a mostly peaceful protest showed up in Mountain View, California and burned Google’s headquarters to the ground.  Or maybe CNN or The New York Times or even Harvard University.  Nothing violent or wrong just a mostly peaceful protest where people took direct action to let the country at large know that they were unhappy.  Now, my guess is that the executive office of every big corporation in America would have a very long meeting about that occurrence but I also guess there wouldn’t be any Human Resources townhall about it.  I’ll bet they won’t state their opinion at all.  But they may stop telling Americans what they have to believe in order to work at their company.  Just a thought.

An Open Letter of Thanks from a Deplorable to Antifa and BLM

I don’t typically give the devil his due but these are not normal circumstances and I think I must.

In our hyperpolarized 50/50 America the economic and social disruption caused by the Wuhan flu should have been a very serious obstacle to an incumbent president’s re-election prospects.  Not that it would have made it impossible for the incumbent but rather that it would have given the challenger a great point of attack.  The loss of many jobs and businesses can easily be politicized during a campaign to the challenger’s advantage.  And that is why the President was so invested in restarting the economy as soon as possible.  This would allow enough time for the economic picture to be on the rebound by the November election.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the campaign.  When it became apparent that Bernie Sanders was not going to be the Democrat candidate for president, his most radical followers seemed to have pulled out Plan B.  And based on actual circumstances Plan B seems to have been a race war.  Unfortunately for their plans, the blue states, instead of quelling the riots, have instead embraced the radical racialist philosophy of BLM and have begun the process of demonizing the white population, dismantling their police departments and eventually setting up a network of warlord drug fiefdoms where their inner-city ghettos are currently situated.  Once these free-fire zones have been in place for a few years all the honest people will be forced to flee the cities and these former metropolises will join Detroit and Baltimore as third world hellholes and cautionary tales for Democrats who think they know how not to waste a crisis.

The upshot of all this is that the Bernie Bros have managed to unleash a Democrat mediated nightmare that almost certainly assures not only the President’s re-election but provides a scenario where down ticket Republicans get a serious boost in their election prospects too.  That is if they are smart enough to take advantage of it.  And being Republicans that is a big if.

But how did this happen?  If I were a conspiracy theorist, I’d hypothesize that false flag agents of the far right infiltrated Antifa and instigated the George Floyd rebellion in Minneapolis and then helped set up separate franchises in all the other blue cities.  It’s of course a ridiculous idea, but the outcome of the rioting is almost ideal as an object lesson for suburbanites who want to see what it would be like if Democrats are allowed to set racial policy across the country.  Not only do they now have to avoid the no-man’s land in their own city but they have to endure corporate training about their white privilege and unconscious bias.  Their kids will be endlessly propagandized at school and encouraged to denigrate their parents, heritage and history.

However, it happened, it truly is a miracle of biblical proportion.  It’s like that scene in the movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life” where the angel gives George Bailey a chance to see what life would be like if he had never been born.  Instead what has happened is the country has been given the chance to see what the Democrat’s 1619 policy will look like ahead of time.  Under their leadership rioting, looting and arson are now spectator sports for Antifa, BLM and the thugs who follow them around.  The protection that you have come to expect from the police will be gone and guns will be plentiful for criminals but still forbidden for you.  Economic growth will disappear for you, but slavery reparations will still have to be paid for, so expect your paycheck to get a lot smaller.  All in all, you’ll be reminded that you really did have a pretty wonderful life last year before the Wuhan flu and BLM took it all away.  And you’ll have a chance in November to put the Democrats in charge and make this nightmare a permanent situation or re-elect President Trump and let him end their reign of terror.  Tough choice.

So, thanks again Antifa, thanks BLM and thanks to all the Democrat mayors and governors who stood idly by while the mob looted, burned, beat and murdered everything in their path.  You’ve done in real life what a thousand commercials could not have done.  You have shown America the future.  Anyone with an IQ higher than the outside temperature in Minneapolis in January should now know exactly what to expect under a Democrat regime, an Orwellian dystopia involving racial violence, the end of free speech and economic serfdom.  Well done.

And if between now and November you get bored, feel free to burn down the cities again just for old times sake and to keep in practice.  If I might offer a suggestion, this time burn down the universities.  Start with Harvard.  I hear they have plenty of statues that need toppling.

How Big is the Post America Contingent?

The present civil war pits all the groups that think America is evil against all the normal Americans who believe in the country that saved the world from all the insanities that raged against humanity in the twentieth century.  It defeated fascism, Nazism, socialism, bolshevism, Maoism and all the other isms that attempted to enslave mankind.  Now the stupidest version of communism, Bernie Bro-ism, is being used as a club by the Clinton-Bush-Obama gang to destroy the country in an orgy of imbecility.

But it has to be admitted that the millennials are willing dupes, the most useful of idiots, swallowing the lies that the intersectional politburo has cobbled together and enthusiastically supporting if not actually leading the charge in the street theater that currently afflicts the urban centers of almost every American city.  These are the children of the Baby Boomers.  They were foolishly but mostly innocently handed over to the ministrations of the America-hating teachers, professors, college resident advisors and human resource assistants who have filled their heads with self-hatred and contempt for the greatest nation that has ever arisen on this planet.

How big is this contingent?  I’ll say that it is the majority of that generation.  In addition to this cohort we can add in all the grievance groups.  This includes feminists of all stripes, all of the LGBTQ, 85% to 90% of the black population, a majority of the Hispanic population, and a good chunk of the rest of the minority groups currently found in the country.  Interestingly, a proportion of that Hispanic population seems to be up for grabs.  The more prosperous and the socially conservative members of the group don’t really feel comfortable with the radical ideology of the far left and rightly believe that tearing down the country is not in their children’s best interests.  I would also include in this category the Indian and Chinese and other Asian groups that came to America to partake in the prosperity and stability of the American system.  Many of these people have seen the rioters destroying the lives of small business owners and they have seen the school systems of these cities destroyed by eliminating the recognition of excellence.  It is possible over the course of a decade or two that these will be the new cohort of the right but it will require a different type of Republican to make that case convincingly and not the spineless open borders fools who play right into the hands of the Amerca-haters.

And the final portion of the Post Americans are the Cloud People and their minions in corporate America.  The very rich and the managerial class have made common cause with the woke Post Americans and pay obeisance to the rioters and use their allies in the media to try to convince everyone else that resistance is futile.

So does this equal 270 electoral votes worth of Post Americans?  Interestingly, probably not!  As much as the Left has been trumpeting their demographics is destiny jazz for thirty years it seems that they haven’t quite dragged themselves over the finish line just yet.  What will be especially interesting to see is whether their share of the millennial vote actually sinks below what they got in 2016.  After all, I have to imagine even the brain-dead millennials have to be disturbed by an actual insurrection being played out in real time in their neighborhoods while the city governments sit back and let it happen.  This is not to say that it will stop most of them from backing it but just maybe the smarter ones will see through the doublespeak.

In places like New York, California and Illinois it should be an ironclad policy of the federal government to withhold any funding to pay for the repair of the damage that the local governments allowed in their urban centers.  This along with the destruction of the small and not so small businesses that were pushed over the edge to bankruptcy by the rioting and the COVID shutdowns should be the price these states should be forced to pay.  That type of reality check will give their voters something to think about.  Because going forward it is important to remember that if the Left is shown by the results of the election to have overplayed their hand then consolidating the votes of those who swing back to our side is the first order of business.  Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota are ground zero for recapturing America.  And not just for the presidential election.  Taking senate seats, house seats and governorships are part of what it will take to begin changing the way Americans think about their country.  They have to be made to understand that in a real way we are in a war.  And the violence and chaos they have seen on the streets will reinforce that understanding and only when they elect men who will protect them from violence and intimidation will they get back the sense of stability and safety that was the norm in America for over a hundred years.

So, the answer to the title question is that the Post America contingent is pretty damn big but not quite big enough to take over if we stand up and stop them.  Don’t forget to vote this November and bring your conservative friends along if they need a ride.

Defund the Universities

This article aligns with my own feelings on the subject.  The universities are hotbeds of anti-Americanism.  Why should our tax dollars be used to fund their hatred of us?  Starving them of funds is the perfect solution to weakening antifa and BLM.  Let these revolutionaries look for real jobs.  While we’re at it we should send a contingent of BLM to burn down Harvard, Yale and the other Ivies.  They’ve got plenty of statues to offend the savages.  We would lose nothing and gain a great deal.

 

 

 

07JUL2020 – Battlefield Report

One thing that can be said for open war.  It provides moral clarity.  Once the barbarians have begun looting and burning, all but the truly certifiable lunatics stop talking about reaching common ground and start talking about guns and ammo.

The lower echelons of the urban elite are starting to get nervous about their vulnerability to roving mobs.  They’re asking their right-wing friends, the ones that have them anyway, how exactly you go about obtaining a gun.  The ones that only have leftists for friends will have to ask Siri or Alexa.  That should be an interesting lecture on gun control.

The major cities with their handcuffed police departments and Democrat mayors are begging the gang-bangers to stop shooting little kids.  Funny how that doesn’t seem to have much effect on hardened criminals without the threat of arrest.  The murders during June skyrocketed and we can only assume that the long hot summer will provide little in the way of relief.  Now you would think that all this dysfunction would get a bunch of Republicans elected as mayors.  But you would be wrong. Places like Atlanta and Chicago will keep voting in Democrats until their cities turn into Detroit.

The idiot leftists have now started to tear down statues of black heroes like Frederick Douglass.  Can we assume that MLK and Malcolm X are next?  Honestly, the true stupidity of these people must be breath taking.  We are dealing with paleolithic levels of social ignorance.  How do these people even survive from day to day?

All this is very interesting but the important question is how this should be handled by the President over the summer and fall to provide the maximum opportunity for a teachable moment for voters who suddenly aren’t so sure that electing Bill de Blasio or Jacob Frey was such a good idea after all.

I linked to that article about Minnesota’s governor asking President Trump to declare Minneapolis a national disaster area to allow $500 million worth of damage from the looting and burning to be paid for by the federal government.  I’m guessing that the answer to that one should be no.

And how about New York City?  The looting alone must have been hundreds of millions of dollars of losses and the arson damage to mid-town Manhattan property would be an astronomical sum.  I’d have to go with no on this one too.

Seattle?  St. Louis?  Atlanta?  Baltimore?  Chicago?  Los Angeles?  Funny thing, we’re batting a thousand here.  All no!  Anyplace where a mayor and or a governor decided to stand the police force down and just let the mob loot and burn, I’d say was a clear-cut case of government abandonment of public safety.  Those places need to impeach their elected officials and then elect someone who won’t allow the mob to run riot.

But in reality, no amount of contrition will help.  These cities are ungovernable.  As long as you have a culture that subsidizes hundreds of thousands of people who don’t work, you’ll find votes for the party handing out the welfare money.  And when these people don’t consider themselves Americans then you will have a mob ready to riot when the excuse surfaces.  It’s probably realistic to assume that these places are destined to become like Detroit.  If that is the case it is best to figure out how to manage that situation instead of pretending, we can fix them.

What President Trump has to do is provide the country with a vision of how the productive and law-abiding sections of the country can avoid being victimized by the non-productive and criminal elements.  He’ll need to target BLM and antifa and dismantle them.  Unfortunately, this will require AG William Barr to do something constructive and in less than a decade which currently doesn’t seem to be his strong suit.  But it has to be done.  The hard working and long-suffering people of this country are exhausted from all this chaos.  We’ve had enough.  And we don’t want to hear that all this is our fault.  We don’t believe that anymore.  If a criminal like George Floyd was murdered by a criminal cop then the cop should be treated just the way Floyd was.  He should have his day in court and then probably spend several decades in prison.  But if the mob decides that this is an excuse to burn down their city then it is up to the city to stop them with force, up to and including lethal force.  If they won’t then any normal individual will reason that these cities are war zones and only a fool would live and raise a family in a place like that.

This should be an interesting week.

2020 Choice – Stand or Grovel

This election will be the perfect indicator of whether or not we have been overwhelmed by the rot that has beset our institutions for the last hundred years.  A starker choice could not be imagined.  The foaming-at-the-mouth Left has dropped the mask completely.  They have embraced the mob in all its nihilistic rage and unleashed it on the citizens of the blue states and the blue cities.  Seattle has gone as far as setting up a killing zone in their capitol where the mob patrols with machine guns and doles out death to the black lives that supposedly they are representing.  It’s like something out of Pol Pot.

If the election does go to Biden you can argue whether voter fraud, or dislike of President Trump by white women or demographics was the deciding factor but what will be undeniable is that a new nation will be dominant inside the geographic boundaries of what used to be America.  The millennials will soon be the dominant cohort within the American demographic and if they decide that what is going on in the streets of our cities is acceptable then nothing will deflect us from the course that the Left is plotting.

So let’s take it one step further, even if President Trump wins this election but only just barely, that still tells me that we are changing for the worse.  What happened in 1968, the rioting and the arson, was still an aberration that shocked the country and galvanized the population to support a law and order candidate in President Nixon, to clean up the problem.  If we don’t see the same reaction to the even more disturbing violence and anarchy gripping our cities this year then it speaks of a loss of will.

Someone might say that it is the propaganda by the media and the kowtowing by the corporations that is misleading Americans.  That these normal people have been fooled by the narrative that the rioting is a reasonable reaction to systemic racism in the police and in American society.  But that is nonsense.  Only someone already brainwashed by the Left could mistake what is happening for reasonable.  Anyone with even a trace of self-respect and an iota of common sense would see what’s happening as an attack on the foundations of our identity and the symbols of the greatest and best country in the history of mankind.

If we do not see a resounding victory for the Right then we are heading down a road to serfdom.  It is possible that through the efforts of a Trump administration we can begin to change direction and change the institutions that have brought about this problem.  With the right Supreme Court and with legislation and enforcement by the DOJ many harmful practices could be suppressed.  But with the current slender majority in the Senate and the Democrat majority in the House and the unreliable nature of the Supreme Court it seems unlikely that much will be done.

So that is why I see this election as a barometer.  If President Trump wins a decisive victory and we pick up seats in the Senate and retake the majority in the House then I see a sliver of hope that there is still enough of the silent majority to allow us to try and turn this thing around together as the United States of America.  If that happens, we stand.  Anything else tells me that the future will require groveling and that is something I won’t stick around for.

Minnesota Wants Federal Money to Rebuild Minneapolis

Minnesota’s Governor Walz has requested President Trump to declare a national disaster and bail out Minnesota to the tune of $500 million for the damage which he himself caused when he allowed the rioting thugs to burn down Minneapolis.

I think the correct response is to respectfully ask Governor Walz to go pound sand where the sun don’t shine.  The first thing that should be done is to cut off all federal police funding to Minneapolis and institute a DOJ investigation into the civil rights violations inherent in a city knowingly allowing a mob to terrorize American citizens based on their racial identity.
