Coming to the end of 2021 I think the most compelling story this year was Kyle Rittenhouse. Here was a kid who had everything going against him going into his murder trial. But against all odds every single thing broke in his favor and he was acquitted on all counts. The moral of this story wasn’t charge into the lion’s den and fear no evil. I guess message must be that God sometimes intervenes and saves the innocent from his own rash behavior. Rittenhouse is a feel-good story but it isn’t representative of any plan for dealing with crime or civil unrest. It’s more like one of those stories about a kitten being rescued from a very tall tree. Heartwarming? Surely. But more of a cautionary tale than a blueprint.
But maybe this will be a year with a hero’s tale. The wind has definitely shifted in our favor and with a little bit of luck we may get a big win for our side this year. Maybe the Supreme Court steps up and decides the abortion case and the gun case in our favor. That would be a big win.
A better case would be if in a couple of weeks, the Supreme Court permanently shuts down the vaccine mandate. Now that would be a shot in the arm (no pun intended). And while they’re at it, stop the mask nonsense too. All of this COVID fascism is the worst kind of tyranny and letting it go on makes a mockery of our supposed freedoms.
But what I’d really like to see is some kind of Red State Convention where the leaders of these freer states sit down together and establish policies to allow them to coordinate their actions and effectively resist all of the federal programs and policies that victimize Americans. The biggest thing would be to come up with an effective way to gather up the illegal aliens that Biden is dumping in the heartland and deliver them to Washington and New York and Boston and California and all the other sanctuary cities and states where they are allegedly so welcome. They could coordinate policies around the Democrat controlled cities in their states to counteract the lawlessness and dysfunction that’s rampant in these jurisdictions. And they can craft business policy to foster more manufacturing jobs from employers. They can punish those companies that have gone offshore with their manufacturing jobs and reward those who bring new jobs here. Tax policy can act as both a carrot and a stick. Look for instance at how jobs from California are migrating to Texas and Florida.
So that’s where I’m hoping to see some things to cheer for this year. Waiting for the midterms in November isn’t a very inspiring message. That’s almost a whole year away and really is a limited accomplishment. After all, it’s not as if it would be a veto proof majority that could legislate. It only takes some of the weapons out of Dementia Joe’s feeble hands.
So that’s my New Year wish. I’d love to see Governors DeSantis and Abbott and their colleagues sit down together and take the first steps to building a better world for their citizens. Dream big.
In the middle of a news conference on law enforcement and the latest COVID nonsense (at about the 5 minute mark) Governor DeSantis takes the national news agencies to task for pretending that the Waukesha attack was some kind of accident. He’s the first government official who clearly states that the driver was probably committing the attack out of anti-white hatred. That’s actually a very bold position. It’s also very honest and will resonate with people who sense that the networks are trying to control the facts about the case. And as DeSantis states the networks tailor their facts to suit their bias when it comes to who is attacking whom.
DeSantis is a powerful force in our country right now. I hope he has a chance to help the rest of the country in addition to Florida.
Note: The video quality in this clip is awful.
On October 23, 2021 Florida Governor Ron DeSantis gave a speech to the Claremont Institute. He outlines the various programs and actions he has taken to prevent the federal government from overstepping its constitutional powers. He talks about the COVID excesses, sanctuary cities, transgender bullying, social media discrimination, BLM and Antifa rioting, critical race theory, election fraud and how his government has responded to these issues. Then he goes through the general conditions in the country and what needs to be done to rectify the problems.
Ron DeSantis is probably the leading figure in the United States fighting back against the leftist agenda that is being fostered by the Biden administration and all the public and private institutions that have allied themselves with it. It’s a very long article but I thought it gives an idea of how many different factors he has addressed in his governing policy in Florida. I believe Ron DeSantis will be running for president in three years. And he is making a very strong case for why he should be elected.
It’s like he’s reading my mind. Which I guess just means he’s doing his job. This is right on the money. Don’t wait for the fraud to cost you an election. Arrest the perpetrators in the act and prevent the problem. Imagine if Pennsyvania had had a law like this when those bozos covered up the windows and excluded the poll watchers. The cops could have dragged them away to jail instead of allowing them to steal an election.
Why the hell aren’t the rest of the Republican governors copying this stuff? We need forty nine other guys just like him.
I’m starting to feel like a broken record praising this guy but he’s not taking no for an answer in pushing for a shield against Floridians losing their jobs over refusing the vaccine. Here he is calling the Florida legislature into special session to enact laws to prevent mandates from taking away the jobs of those who refuse to be vaccinated.
At this rate I expect him to issue a warrant to have Dementia Joe hauled down to Florida and prosecuted for mopery and dopery and eventually forced to pick up trash on roadsides with that stick with the spike at the end in an orange jump suit.
Well, anyway, it’s good to see there’s at least one politician who isn’t going to just sit there and let Washington treat us like slaves without at least putting up a fight.
DeSantis is the one bright light in the current debacle that is American politics. He’s smart and articulate. He isn’t mealy-mouthed and he has shown initiative and the willingness to act proactively instead waiting for his opponents to attack him unchallenged.
His court challenges to the Biden crime family’s unconstitutional executive actions have been by and large successful and the legislation that he has spear-headed in the Florida legislature have been bold and practical. Granted not all of it will work and the feds have enormous power to make trouble for him but he’s shown that acting on a positive agenda can be the best way to combat the attacks of the Left.
In three years I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump anoints him his successor for the 2024 election. His youth and energy make him a natural to attract support from all corners of the non-insane portion of the citizenry. After four years of the Biden mess even some of the insane may see him as the more attractive path. After all even the insane have to eat.
I wish Ron DeSantis all the good fortune he can get. And I hope in a few years he’ll be running all fifty states and not just Florida.
This guy DeSantis is really stepping up his game. He’s going after the feds who are transporting illegals from the Mexican border and dumping them in Florida. He’s going to criminalize what they are doing and confiscate the vehicles they are using. And he’s suing the Feds over the dumping which is being called illegal human trafficking. Here’s the Conservative Treehouse link. I think DeSantis is serious about fighting back against the Feds. In my estimation this is huge. I wonder if he has found some allies even in the Courts to help him make this stick.
I hate to have too much hope but I have to say I’m starting to feel optimistic. If he wins this fight he is starting to look a very important national figure. If this works hopefully the other red states will copy this and use it to stem the tide of illegals.
Well, the visit was a wonderful time and the guest is winging his way back west. Pardon my lack of output for the last week. Family comes first. That’s the law.
But now I’ll start doing my work again. I intend to do a reasonable job looking at the former Eastern bloc countries for signs of a reasonable fall back if the Right fails us altogether here in America. It seems insane to even think of that former prison camp as a haven of freedom but there are some indications that it’s true. Here’s another interview Tucker Carlson did with Poland’s president. Eastern Europe apparently hasn’t been overwhelmed by woke idiots yet. Gives me hope.
It’s nice to see that the media is admitting that Biden’s job approval rating is tanking. Confidentially I’m shocked they allowed the truth to peak through even a little. But the thing I’m waiting for is when Sinema and Manchin see the light and discover that the shenanigans in the Reconciliation Bill, the illegal alien amnesty and the other atrocities, are just good old American horse sense after all. And after that I expect to see Demntia Joe’s job approval numbers to sky rocket like a winter COVID spike.
And speaking of COVID it looks like Florida’s Delta spike has returned to baseline. Congratulations to Gov. DeSantis for hanging tough while the press and the Biden administration slandered him. Hopefully it will be an example for the rest of the red state governors going forward.
One thing I realized this week is that just because we live in a tyranny doesn’t mean we should just stop enjoying life. At the very least we need to be coming up with work arounds to enjoy our lives despite the road blocks the Left throws at us.
A Florida Appeals Court reinstated Ron DeSantis’s rule allowing parents to send their kids to school without masks. This is going to be ground zero for a battle between Biden and DeSantis. I hope DeSantis prevails.
I have to hand it to the Florida governor. He’s doing the work.
First up, the ZMan manages to have a lot of fun with the Theranos fraud trial of Elizabeth Holmes. And how could you not have fun with it? With Holmes’ fake baritone voice and the complete collapse of her fake medical device company it has something for everyone on the right to cheer about.
Secondly, although Biden’s poll numbers are still underwater, so far, the Taliban and ISIS-K have somehow neglected to behead any Americans yet. I attribute this to enormous monetary bribes from Dementia Joe. But however it’s being done it may prevent Joe from being tarred and feathered by the public. And I don’t discount the F— Joe Biden phenomenon. But who knows? Maybe Biden will survive his term in office.
And finally I noticed that the Delta Variant Spike in Florida and Texas is almost back down to the baseline in early July before it started. Kudos to DeSantis and Abbott for not panicking. Hard to say how long the COVID Iron Curtain will remain up in Blue America but just knowing there are areas outside its control is inspirational for us on the inside.
