It’s been quite a week. Joe Biden announced his plan for re-election. Another large bank is failing. Stagflation was declared by a few economists. The city of Bakhmut has been almost completely erased from the map. The US government has vowed to turn our military into a joke driving clown cars and “electric” ships. Tucker Carlson eclipsed all of cable news by sending out a “stay tuned” message on his next gig. And we all groaned or laughed depending on how far along we are in the grieving process.
For myself, personally, I have a bunch of stuff coming up in the next two weeks that will keep me hopping. I even have to attend a work-related event tomorrow (Saturday!) so I won’t be able to lavish as much time as I’d like on complaining about the horrors of civilizational disintegration or mocking the disgusting degenerates who make up most of our federal government. But I’ll be there in spirit.
It’s a funny thing. For the last month or so when people talk to me about the 2024 election, I tell them I don’t think the Republicans can overcome the vote-by-mail scam the Democrats have introduced into swing states like Pennsylvania and Michigan. At first, they seem at a loss what to say but after a few seconds they nod their heads and agree. I think they are surprised that I’ve given up the fight. But then they look at the substance and have to agree.
And that acceptance makes all the rest easier. The idea that an absurd walking corpse like Joe Biden, whose tenure up to this point has been an unmitigated disaster for this country and who would be 86 if he somehow survives to the end of a second term, will be re-elected to the presidency of the United States of America should be an outrage and an impossibility. But it is now talked about in the political columns as the most likely outcome of the election. A year ago, I would have been apoplectic about this situation. Now I see it as the status quo and my job is to find the actions that I can take to limit my exposure to the consequences of this reality.
And because of the enshrined insanity that the Biden administration produces as its stock in trade (e.g., pediatric transgender surgery and medications), I look at this status quo as the perfect laboratory to measure the strength and determination of the more normal states like Florida to revolt against this mess when it becomes unbearable.
And this laboratory is important to me. I’m looking to see if the strength exists to defy the federal government on important issues like the anti-trans legislation and illegal immigrant policy. It’s going to be over something very polarizing and I feel that the trans-movement is the likeliest vehicle that could trigger a revolt. And it’s an issue that produces such a visceral response in normal people that I think it might provide just the right combination of emotions to get a large number of people to take a stand.
As it is, more than ten states have signed on to forbidding doctors from “transitioning” children through either drugs or surgery. And this is already causing Democrat judges to at least temporarily halt these laws. But I could see this going further. The whole idea of forcing people to pretend to believe that men are women is an affront to freedom of speech and more basically it’s an affront to sanity. I can see a state making a stand and regardless of what the Supreme Court may rule just plain refusing to allow the charade to continue within their jurisdiction.
So regardless of the 2024 election I’m very excited by the swirling events all around us. I’m pretty hopeful that some kind of alternative media may be hatching among the journalists that have been cast off or ignored by the main stream media. Tucker Carlson is only the latest (and possibly the bravest) to begin setting up shop outside of the walls of the approved organs of the press or as the ZMan calls them the “stenographers of the regime.” My hopes may be a bit unrealistic. I secretly wish for Elon Musk to cobble together a commercial operation that would allow the likes of Carlson, Taibbi, Greenwald and several other reporters and commentators to set up shop in a virtual newsroom that gets its public through Twitter. It can be a multi-tiered operation with free components and also a paywall for the premium services.
So, you see, it’s not all doom and gloom. With realistic expectations there’s still hope for some improvement to our horrendous plight. Who knows, there might even be some kind of apocalyptic comeuppance for the Biden administration that even the Deep State will sign onto. I mean even the CIA and the FBI must be kinda scared that if Joe Biden falls down the stairs to Air Force One that Kamala Harris will be the leader of the free world (sorta) and at that point some kind of quantum mechanical reaction could suck the planet into a wormhole.
So, I’ll be out of pocket all of tomorrow morning and maybe part of the afternoon. Enjoy your Saturday and I’ll return later to moan and complain about life here in Dunwich.
