If you can stand hearing the details of how the George W. Bush administration kicked out the last of our constitutional rights by weaponizing the FBI read it here. It’s starting to remind me of the flavor of Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago. They have built a machine to make us the slaves of the Deep State. I’m starting to wonder whether even if a Red State nullifies the unconstitutional laws whether anyone would be safe to stand against them. At this point anyone who tells them no is liable to be whisked off to a Super Max prison and never heard from again.
How the hell did we come to this? Maybe it makes more sense to just get out.
This is a short post by Codevilla asserting that before we can act effectively against the usurpers in Washington, we must first acknowledge that the Republic as we knew it is already extinguished and replaced by the oligarchy that controls both the bureaucracy in Washington and the globalist corporations that work hand in glove with them. But once we do acknowledge this reality, we can take effective action to organize like minded people to start effecting a different future for ourselves that doesn’t revolve around the oligarchic domain.
Codevilla points in the direction of the governors of red states beginning to nullify the dictates of the federal government where they overstep constitutional limits. But he does not go into any detail as to how this will happen and what level of resistance the federal government will offer. But I think we all are beginning to see that some extremely brave men will be needed to cross a kind of Rubicon at some point in the not-too-distant future. If not, then the idea of escaping the oligarchy will be just a fantasy.
I find it is becoming increasingly easy to hear the same ideas being stated by different types of writers. Codevilla is an academic. But plenty of ordinary people and plenty of pundits are beginning to coalesce around the idea that a rejection of the regime in Washington is what is already happening. The biggest question is when will a serious collision happen and who will win?
One of the things I’m always yammering on about is the need to identify people on our side. Well, American Greatness has done just that. They’ve put together a database of websites that provide forbidden content. Many of these sites have been depaltformed from Facebook, YouTube and Twitter because they defy the proscribed boundaries of allowable discourse. And they’ve even categorized their sins into five flavors
- Christian Patriot
- Climate Skeptic
- Free Speech Ally
- Irreverent Investigator
- Western Warrior
This is a great resource for folks who are looking for reliable sources of information and communities on our side. In fact it’s almost too much choice but since it’s categorized it does help to focus your search. I’m sure there can be debate about who is and isn’t on the list and maybe contacting the publisher of the list might facilitate an addition if warranted. Anyway, the link below goes directly to the data base.
The ZMan is an insightful writer and he has a history lesson on what kinds of conflicts afflict regimes that no longer satisfy their elites or their proles. See what you think.
Insurrection Then Revolution
Michael Anton worked for President Trump as the Head of Communications at the National Security Council. In this essay he provides an eye-witness account in defense of the President’s obvious patriotism and love for the soldiers. It’s interesting to see how someone who was present when certain comments were made can shine a light on how they can be maliciously taken out of context.
The Donald Trump I Know
Be still my beating heart! The ZMan will never be called a Trump advocate but this post is pretty darn close to being the ZMan’s advice to the Trump campaign. It’s well thought out and it’s pretty upbeat. I’ll take it!
Less than a month left for Durham to take action on Russiagate before the 60-day election cutoff. Apparently, there is a rule against an administration interfering in an election (the October surprise strategy) within that period so if Durham doesn’t want to run the risk of sending his report to President Biden, he will have to do it before Labor Day. Here’s a link to an article that basically says he will release his report and includes a supposed expert opinion that says he’ll hand down indictments.
Well, I gave up on all this months ago but I will admit I’m curious to see what happens between now and Labor Day. Even my short attention span can concentrate for that long. But I’d be lying if I said my expectations are very high for something explosive. I’m expecting a sort of dressing down by the teacher and a slap on the wrist for being sloppy and over eager and maybe someone loses his law license.
If anyone thinks differently, I’d love to hear an opinion and the basis for it. Because this whole cabal is surely one of the most damning pieces of evidence to prove that the Deep State really does run things behind the scenes and can’t be touched.
The ZMan is one of my favorite evil thinkers and he has the greatest radio voice on the Dissident Right. In fact I call his mellifluous Friday podcast the Voice of Saruman because like that hypnotic wizard he can beguile even the pure of heart if they don’t spit on the ground three times and make the devil’s horns at the computer speaker before he speaks.
But this week his podcast is positively upbeat! Now granted it was an effort and he couched all the good news in caveats and conditionals but give the devil his due. He had words of praise for President Trump’s efforts to rein in legal immigration and he had a bunch of other good news too. And he also had sensible things to say to the dissidents about pessimism and its deleterious effects. This is advice that anyone on the Right should hear. All in all an excellent podcast indeed.
Happy Happy Fun Time
Vox was the leader of the Rabid Puppies starting back five years ago and he still enjoys watching the Pink Sci-Fi mafia shrieking whenever one of the actual successful sf&f writers (like in this case, George R. R. Martin of Game of Thrones fame) doesn’t grovel low enough at the altar of intersectional fiction writing for their liking. Apparently he mispronounced one of the unpronounceable fake names that transgender people make up and because of that he’s a racist transphobe and might not get invited back to the Hugos again! Oh the horror.
Vox copied the funnier parts of the shriek. I’m still a big fan of all things Sad/Rabid Puppy and always enjoy watching the crazies attack each other with great joy. If you remember the fun back then check it out for the laughs.
The ZMan is not a Trump fan. But he is interested in how the American electorate’s understanding of Left/Right politics is adapting to the new landscape we now live in. And because he’s not a Trump partisan I find it especially confirmatory of my opinion that he also sees that the media are using exactly the same inflated numbers for Biden that they used for Hillary back in 2016. It’s wonderful how today Biden is up by 7 points in Florida. I remember back in 2016 there was such excitement because Florida had Hillary ahead early and everyone on the Left was haling it as the demographic inevitability that they’d been heralding for a decade. And then they lost. I guess the idea is to discourage voters by telling them their votes won’t matter.
The ZMan also notes that the rioting isn’t very popular with white voters almost everywhere. Who knows maybe even Oregon and Washington voters may be fed up enough to send a message to their representatives on election day. Maybe a representative or two get’s bounced in favor of a Republican here and there. Wouldn’t that be something. So anyway, it’s good to see the ZMan is seeing a lot of the same things I am. It doesn’t hurt to have a neutral party confirm your opinion once in a while.
