How Much of a Factor Will the Crime Epidemic Be?

I’m not completely sure how important an issue rampant crime will be in the political situation in America.  It’s already fueling an enormous flight from the major cities and that is having a major impact on everything from used car prices to the pricing and availability of houses in the suburbs to the supply and demand of seats in private schools.  But as much as the big cities are and will remain the uncontested domain of Democrat politicians you have to wonder what will happen as the unchecked crime in theses areas becomes a permanent condition.

Already it has had some impact on the politics in some of the biggest cities.  New York has selected the closest thing to a law-and-order Democrat to be their next mayor.  And the pop-eyed lesbian mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, has hinted that she might not run for re-election in two years.  What she doesn’t mention is that she may be ridden out of town on a rail long before that if the current rate of murders in Chicago continues unabated.

What this is leading up to in my thought here is the question of whether there will be a turning point where the cities pull back from the madness or each just spirals down into a dysfunctional no-man’s land like Detroit or Baltimore.  I think it might not be a uniform decision.  As we see New York is starting to reverse course.  But places like Portland and Minneapolis will probably stay the course and ride this wave right into the ground.  A recent report stated that Minneapolis has seen a 60% increase in murder last year and just yesterday a woman’s headless body was found in a car on the street in one of the neighborhoods of Minneapolis indicating that we are well on the way to abject savagery.

My guess is that the crime epidemic will go a long way to consolidate the Republicans in the red states as fear of the blue city crime will favor no-nonsense candidates who take a pro-police stance and promise to protect the people living in the suburbs and rural areas from the roving gangs of urban thugs that have been unleashed by the cities.  One thing that will be interesting to see is whether states like Georgia and Missouri decide to step in and clean up Atlanta and St. Louis.  If things really spin out of control in those places I wonder if the state will take control of the police in those jurisdictions and override the local control.  It would seem that it would be warranted on a civil rights basis if the people in these cities were shown to be suffering from criminal mismanagement.

I have no illusions about the blue states doing anything similar about their cities.  They will convince themselves that this is all the result of white supremacists selling illegal guns to poor innocent gangbangers who just want to keep up with the fentanyl arms race that free enterprise necessitates.  They can get their constituents to believe anything they tell them so they’ll just let the degeneration of their cities proceed and the elites will move to secured suburbs and everyone else will pay a price.  But no price is too much to pay for equity, diversity and inclusion.

But what about the supposed purple states?  Are there any states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, maybe Virginia that could see what’s going on and learn something about what’s wrong with the Left’s vision of the world?  Could watching Philadelphia or Kenosha burned and looted and seeing their fellow citizens without police to protect them from merciless thugs in their own neighborhoods convince the “moderates” that backing the Left is a terrible mistake.  The answer is no, I don’t believe it will.  I think the sorting between the Left and Right has already occurred and those places are lost.  But I could be wrong about that.  I hope I am.

So that’s my take.  The Antifa-BLM riots and the elimination of the urban police departments may very well serve as the object lesson that the red states need to formulate a strategy to protect themselves from the Obama insurrection.  In fact, if it doesn’t then there really isn’t any hope for this country.  Seeing the fate of our greatest cities and then witnessing the daily spectacle of old men and women being brutally beaten and sometimes killed while the police stand down and let it happen is all the warning we’ll ever get.  We’ll soon enough know.

When in the Course of Human Events – Part 3

In the second installment of this series, I looked at the Declaration of Independence and tried to show the similarities between the grievances that existed in 1776 and our own.  But I did indicate briefly that the difficulties we face in trying to throw off our oppressors are extraordinarily more difficult than what the colonials faced with George III’s England.

The United States federal government is the single most powerful organization that has ever existed in all of human history.  It has the sole control of the most powerful conventional armed forces on the face of the earth and also the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons in existence.  It has the ability to unleash weapons that very probably could obliterate human life from the face of the planet.  Compare that to a fraction of the 18th Century British Navy and Army and some Hessian troops.

Granted, without the willing support of the American people, the federal government is not fully in control of this vast juggernaut of military power but there has never been a time in the last two hundred years when another power has existed on this continent that could threaten that government.  And I include the period of the civil war into that statement.

In addition to the military might, the US federal government controls the de facto reserve currency of the global monetary system.  They can literally write a check for a quadrillion dollars and it would be accepted as cash.  That’s a thousand trillion, a number that up till now was just a way to count the gas atoms in a jar but now as we’ve headed into ludicrous debt territory has becomes a real thing.  So, this is the government that pays for your elderly relatives’ social security and maybe even your medical coverage.  And they collect your income tax and send you your refund check.  Imagine if they told your bank that your accounts aren’t really yours anymore.

And through the FBI and the NSA and their loyal lackeys in Google and Facebook and Twitter they control all your personal information and all your electronic correspondence.  They know who is organizing against them before the organizers do.  In fact, they actually are the organizers.  The FBI sets up these rebellious cells and looks to see who is willing to join them.  These are just fly traps that they set out to gage the temperament of the population.

Does this mean I think rebellion is impossible?  No, not at all.  What it means is that the men who decide to rebel will have to be powerful, smart and very brave.  It means that a popular movement will need a cadre of prominent men who will build a political movement from the top down.  Without Donald Trump we would have gotten Hillary Clinton as president or at best prettier Hillary, JEB!  Those were the only two choices that were going to be available.  Whoever is going to lead the non-leftist party is going to have to build a machine that can harness the power of that constituency both in power and out.  We shouldn’t have to wait until 2024 to start organizing and getting results.  Someone should already be rounding up the governors and legislatures of the red states to coordinate legislative and executive actions that protect their citizens from the usurpations that are presently going on in Washington.  There needs to be a reaction to the election fraud legislation in Congress.  It needs to reach into the cities in Red States to close the door on voter fraud once and for all.

And voter fraud is just one item on the agenda.  A clear strategy is needed to confront any and all BLM type campaigns of intimidation against law enforcement and the innocent citizens that depend on it for safety and peace of mind.  Information should be shared across the whole red state confederation to identify the leaders who go back and forth to various cities to lead and coordinate the Antifa and BLM attacks.  These people need to be arrested, charged, tried, convicted and imprisoned for the real crimes they’ve committed.

The red states need to reject all of the anti-white and anti-male affirmative action programs and laws.  All of these laws and programs need to be declared illegal and their operation in red states ended.  This includes the anti-white and more generally anti-normal bias that is practiced on the social networking sites.

So, that is how I see us rebelling against the Left.  Our Declaration of Independence is just us waving the Declaration and the Constitution in front of the noses of the Left and saying we aren’t going to let you nullify these documents.  We still have all these rights and if you say we don’t we’re going to work against you at the state level if necessary to protect them.  We’ll need to start coordinating boycotts and state lawsuits against corporations that sponsor or condone these discriminatory practices.  We need to raise awareness among our people that there is a way to redress the attacks we are experiencing from the Left and their allies in industry, academia and the media.  So that would be the beginning of a rebellion.

Where it goes from there is a fair question.  But until we at least do something at the levels where we do control the reins of power, we’ll just keep losing ground.

And finally do leaders like the ones I describe exist?  I think they might.  But there’s only one way to know for sure.  And that is when they stand up and say no and then make it stick.  That’s where the rubber meets the road when they push back and you have to push back harder.

When in the Course of Human Events – Part 2

My first part in this series of posts was a love song to the kind of Fourth of July celebration we had when I was a kid.  And that was fun to think about and write.  But the heart of this exercise was a thought I had about the underlying reason for the holiday.  All of this crap about Juneteenth being Independence Day got me thinking about the document that declared our independence.

I know it’s old fashioned to still think about a country that’s founded on the cause of equality.  After all, equality or as it is now called equity is the cudgel that the Left uses to deprive us of our rights.  And it is very fashionable on the Dissident Right to condemn all things associated with Enlightenment political thought.  So be it, I’m a reactionary.

But when I look at the text of the Declaration, I see that it was a list of grievances that free men were making against their government and a statement that they weren’t going to take it any longer.  And the more I read into it the closer and closer is the analogy to the situation we currently find ourselves in.  Let’s look at it.

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

If we decided to end our association with the Blue States, I think I would be very hard put to find better words than those found in the introduction to the declaration.  I’d borrow the whole thing.

 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Other than the use of the words, “colonies” and “King of Great Britain” this section of the document, called the preamble, is also almost word for word the best thing that could be written to describe why we would want to escape from the clutches of the Left.  Who could hope to write a better justification than this, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”?  It’s perfect.  We are being deprived of the things that make life worth living.  We are treated as criminals and third-class citizens in our own country and we are tired of it.

I’ll pick a few of the grievances the colonists listed to show a little of the similarities to today’s grievances.  Obviously not everything jibes in this list because we are not in a sparsely inhabited wilderness.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

(In our case this would equate to allowing Antifa and BLM to burn, loot and murder our neighbors)

 

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

(In our case this would be weaponizing the FBI and Justice Department to prosecute us for trumped up charges.)

 

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

(Nothing needs to be changed on this one)

 

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

(Nothing needs to be changed on this one.)

 

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

(Ask the guys who are rotting in jail whose only crime was being in Washington D.C. on January 6th.)

 

And the conclusion:

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Once again, switch out words for Great Britain and British Crown and decide what the new country will be called and you can use the whole darn thing.

What I think I want to show with this analysis is the reasonableness of wanting to escape from the Left.  The parallels with 1776 are obvious.  All the same natural conditions exist for rebellion.  They are reducing us to serfs and we’re not used to such an existence.  We know what it is to be free and we want freedom back.

What isn’t equivalent is the level of difficulty in escaping from our masters.  George III was a peevish nobleman across what was then a very wide ocean.  We are trapped in a barrel with a badger.  We can’t run and we can’t hide.

In the third installment I’ll talk about what our quest for freedom could look like.

When in the Course of Human Events – Part 3

Separation is Now Complete

Even a year ago there were plenty of people who honestly hoped that the Left and Right could paper over their differences and find a path forward that both sides could live with.  Sort of a Missouri Compromise for the 21st century.

I don’t believe that is any longer the case.  Sure, there are some people who make believe that everything will work out in the end and really this is all for the best.  But all of those people are on the Left.  Although some of them think of themselves as being in the middle.  But if you see what they are willing to tolerate then not calling them the Left is inaccurate.  Anyway, the Left figures that if they just keep doing what they’re doing now, we’ll either see the light of their day or just give up and go along with the inevitability of the right side of history.

But other than people who are completely unaware of what is happening on the ground everyone on the Right knows that we cannot live with the Left any longer.  The hatred they have for us is visceral and the tactics they are willing to use to get their way are not tolerable.

So, here we are.  We know what we need, separation.  What we don’t know is how or when.  It seems fairly apparent that it won’t be an easy process.  I’ll even say it won’t be bloodless, although, I don’t think we’re talking about a shooting war with tanks and drones and ground divisions.  I think it will be something like the Fall of the Soviet Union.  Things at the edges will start to unravel and the powers that be will lose control of the narrative and then start to lose control of events.  To a small extent it’s already happening.  The Red State governors stopped even paying lip service to President “Mask Up!” and just declared the COVID fiasco over.  And they made it stick.  And even the Blue State governors understood that they couldn’t keep the charade going any longer.  What will be the next domino to fall?  Will it be illegal aliens?  Will Texas start rounding them up on its own or denying them work and forcing them to leave?  Maybe.  Will the Supreme Court tell Alabama they can’t stop abortions after the heartbeat of the baby and will Alabama ignore them?  Maybe.

So, nobody knows how all this will go but we do know what we don’t want.  We don’t want BLM destroying our lives.  In fact, we don’t want affirmative action anymore.  If the Supreme Court thinks affirmative action is constitutional then the Supreme Court has to go.  We don’t want to defund the police.  Say what you will about the police.  Some of them are thugs too.  But my odds of avoiding crime are a hell of a lot better if the boys in blue are keeping the Bloods and the Crips on a very short leash.  We want color blind justice so that a melting pot like the United States was can come close to treating everyone sort of fairly.  We don’t want to be told what we can and cannot say or believe and we don’t want anyone telling us who we have to like or dislike.  And we damn sure know we need to be able to protect ourselves with our own weapons.  We may even need to protect ourselves from the Federal government.  The FBI has become the KGB, an enemy of the free people and we have more to fear from them than from any Russian threat.

We know we’re two different nations.  All we need now is a way to make it official.

So that’s what I think.  Does anyone disagree and think we’ll be able to meet the Left in the middle?  Let me know.  I’m always interested in other opinions.

Michael Anton Has a Post on Re-Drawing Some of the States

Over at the American Mind, Michael Anton has a long essay about the desirability of re-drawing the borders between some of the states and also allowing the states more independence to live their own way.  On paper it sounds great.  But how does it happen with the Left in charge of the federal government?

The only way I see this happening in reality is for one or more of the strong Red States to nullify the most unconstitutional federal laws and then make it stick.  I’m looking at you Ron DeSantis.

Putting Things in Perspective – Part 2 – Civil War Analogy

After discussing the Revolutionary War last time, the next major historical comparison I’d like to look at is the one comparing our situation to the mid-nineteenth century American Civil War.  In this comparison the Left is equated with the historical “North” and the Right with the “South.”

We’ll start with things that do align in this comparison.  The cultural and intellectual elites of the Abolitionist Movement do line up well with the modern Left.  In fact, there is probably a decent number among today’s Woke Left that are direct descendants from the Abolitionists themselves.  And certain historians believe that the culture of New England and its exports to areas like the Great Lakes area and the Pacific Coast states have preserved the viewpoint and authority of the nineteenth century elites from that region of the country.  From that point of view there is a certain direct analogy between the Northern Abolitionist Leadership and the Modern Left.

But let’s look at some of the other factors.  First of all, let’s look at the driving force of the cause.  The Abolitionists wanted to end slavery.  It’s hard to over stress just how popular this cause was.  It was evident to even many Southerners that slavery was an evil that could not be justified by its benefits to the economy.  For a country whose whole existence is expressed in the single word freedom, slavery is anathema.  Therefore, the moral underpinnings of the Civil War were very powerful.  Certainly, the Southern States were able to muster a justification for the practice of slavery but at no time did this justification convince anyone outside of the South and not even everyone inside.  So, the abolition of slavery was a cause that resonated broadly around the United States outside of the Deep South.

But look at the current agenda of the Woke Left.  It is a rag tag grab bag of radical ideas and identity politics grievances that isn’t even rationally self-consistent.  Feminism and even lesbian feminism are at odds with transgender “rights.”  And the BLM agenda of eliminating the police won’t stand scrutiny by other communities like Asians and Hispanics now that they see that it equates to wholesale criminal anarchy.  It is far from certain that even in the “Blue States” that the whole agenda of the radical Left is entirely acceptable.  This is a major difference between the Civil War situation.  The Left’s agenda today is far less popular than the abolition of slavery was back then.

The next consideration is the location of each “side.”  The Confederacy was never able to convince even some of the slave states to join in its revolt.  The border states Kentucky, Missouri and Maryland never seceded.  And even an area of Virginia refused to join and “seceded” from Virginia to become West Virginia and remain with the Union.  Inside the free states there weren’t any large areas that would have joined the South or opposed the abolition of slavery for the most part.

But look at today.  Instead, the Red and Blue States are only an indicator of the majority status of each side in a state.  But geographically we can see that this is really a city versus countryside polarization.  The cities in the Red States are full of Leftists for the most part and even deep Blue States like California and New York have rural areas that are completely red.  This definitely helps our side.  These concentrated populations of Leftists work well when you want to cheat during an election but it doesn’t help much when you are trying to control a population that is diffused over thousands of square miles in some cases.  Controlling the back country especially when it is adjacent to a Red State may turn out to be an impossible job.

And finally in the 1860’s the slave states were so afraid of a Republican holding the White House that they seceded before Lincoln could even assemble his government.  We’ve seen two truly woke administration already.  Obama and now Biden.  And Biden is using all the force of the federal government to destroy our way of life.  But what it seems to show is that determined state leaders can use the state laws to combat these Woke orders and possibly nullify their effects without having to leave the Union.  This is still a preliminary evaluation but I think it is worth seeing if the lessons learned from Sanctuary Cities can be applied to other issues like Second Amendment Rights and First Amendment Freedoms.

So, from the point of view comparison, it seems to me that our side is significantly better off in the present situation than the South was during the Civil War.  And that is definitely a thing to be happy about.

Merging Identity Politics with Color Blind Policies

The Dissident Right’s agenda is defined by two facts that they broadcast pretty constantly.  One is that the United States will soon be a minority majority voting population.  The other is that we are not going to vote our way out of the Left’s control.

The demographics of the first assertion seem very likely.  The second proposition revolves around the fact that other ethnicities will vote their own self interests and that they will be convinced that the Democrat agenda represents those self-interests.  I’m not going to state categorically that they are wrong on this second point.  After all, the Democrats get close to 90% of the black vote and the majority of the other non-white ethnic votes.  But even if we despair of winning the national vote for President, within the swing states it seems worthwhile to look at how the ethnic vote could be added to a coalition.

The first thing that should be admitted is that prying the black vote away from the Democrats, even in a Red State is probably an impossibility, at least for the foreseeable future.  And with the recent polarization caused by BLM and Antifa the real question concerning the black population is whether they will be willing to live peaceably with their neighbors at all.  But let’s look at the rest of the ethnic populations.

While it is true that the Democrats have managed to coopt the votes of the Asian and Latino voters pretty successfully in the past it is worth thinking about what the current political realities mean for this existing pattern.  And the woke political policies I mean to concentrate on is the current campaign to delegitimize the police and the reverse discrimination tactic called equity.

First the police.  Even in places like Portland OR and Minneapolis MN where the majority of the citizens are hopeless bug men who yearn for a society where muggers, rapists and murderers are judged not by their crimes but by the color of their skins I bet there is a very healthy sized population of normal people who yearn to escape from the madness of BLM protests and the associated lawless reign of terror.  And not so surprisingly I bet there are plenty of Asian and Latino people among them who wish this nightmare would end and life would return to normal.  And of course, there are black people living in this mess who also wish it would end but they’re stuck in their communities and that’s a problem for another day.  To my way of thinking the political message that should be broadcast to the ethnic communities is that living in a woke community means law enforcement cannot restrain the threat from criminals in the black community.

Next comes equity.  The easiest piece of equity to target is what it means for education.  The schools will be dumbed down to avoid “white supremacist ideas” like 2 + 2 = 4.  Some people will claim that only the Asian parents will respond to this second condition but I feel that even many Latino parents are unhappy with the prospect of sending their kids to be taught mush instead of STEM.  After all, even those illegals from Guatemala come here because there’s money to be made.  And they know that education is the key to advancement.

The reason this strategy should work with the non-black minority communities is because woke policies cater almost exclusively to one population, blacks.  And because of this it disadvantages all the rest of the ethnic groups, not just whites.  What other group benefits from black criminals being allowed to rampage through a city.  None.  Everyone else pays the price and it is a steep one.  A clever politician should be able to sell an anti-equity platform to everyone but the black population.

But let’s say that in the swing states the minorities stubbornly cling to the Democrat woke alliance.  Then it is doubly important that the Red States clearly declare that color blind impartiality is the rule for all state-run activities.  In fact, now that the feds and the Blue States have gone all in for “equity” it’s the perfect time to push things back all the way to total color blindness.  In other words, no more reverse discrimination, no more affirmative action, no more quotas, no nothing.  Push back is the right thing at this point.

So that’s the way I think these things should go.  But to do any of this we need real leaders with courage and brains.  We probably should recruit the Wizard of Oz to provide the gifts he gave the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow to all the Red State governors and legislators.  And while he’s at it he might as well give them a heart too.

33.33% of 2021 is Gone Down the Chute and What Do We Have to Show for It?

Time certainly flies when you’re being tortured by an evil cabal of troglodytic Morlocks.  But here we are at the one third mark of 2021.  And if you’re in the noticing and opining business, which I am, then it’s time to see if there’s anything worth noticing and if there is, then it’s time to opine about it.

The first thing I notice is that nobody on the Right believes a thing being said by D.C. or the Media or the rest of the cabal.  Now, I’m not counting quislings like Liz Cheney or Mitt Romney as “on the right.”  And there is a pretty general feeling that Cheney and Romney are going to get theirs as soon as the voters get a shot at them.  In fact it’s so bad that even the spineless jellyfish in the Republican Congressional Caucus are rethinking their vote a few months ago to retain Cheney as a “Republican Leader” (boy, there’s an oxymoron).  Word is Liz will be booted out of the leadership at the end of the month and some other spineless jellyfish with slightly less stupidity will be enthroned.  Romney was booed long and loudly at a Utah Republican meeting.  He missed being censured by the Utah Republican party by a pretty close margin.  But I want to believe that when he’s up for re-election someone a lot better than that empty suit will have the initiative to challenge him in a primary.  That would be worth the price of admission.

So getting back to the point.  Nobody with even a flicker of intelligence is talking about bipartisanship or compromise or even avoiding the worst excesses of the Democrat control of all the levers of government.  If somehow the Democrats fail to do all the horrible things they say they want to do, then fine.  But if and or when they make DC the 51st state or pack the Supreme Court or make 40,000,000 illegal aliens, citizens I’m not going to be surprised.  I’m not going to despair.  For a lot of people those things happening are a given.

What we’re looking at is what are people from our side doing.  What is Ron DeSantis doing and what might he do when Dementia Joe sets his stormtroopers on the citizens of Florida?  Several states are passing legislation to protect their people from attacks on the 2nd Amendment and all the transgender madness.  Several states are already starting to prosecute Social Media for discriminating against the Right.  Even small things like the Basecamp furor and the retreat by Coke and Delta in the face of boycott threats are the beginnings of action from our side.

So far nothing tremendous has happened.  But I detect momentum is lacking on the Left.  As Portland and Minneapolis burn no one on the Right cares except to laugh at the pain of the idiots living there.  If 2021 has another summer of riots it will do more for our side than theirs.  Dementia Joe owns it and he is welcome to it.  Our side is consolidating control over the Red States and looking for ways to separate our lives from the madness that the Left “says” they want for themselves.  Our answer should be, “Be our guest, wallow in your depravity, just stay on your side of the line.”  As the Red States continue to open up their economies after learning their lessons from the COVID fraud hopefully the Blue States will continue the mask pantomime and aggravate their citizens even more.

One third through this year I’d say some progress has been made toward coming to grips with the cold civil war we have going on.  Some progress doesn’t mean enough progress though.  I am far from satisfied with where we are.  But I will say there is definitely a sense that the wake up has happened to a large extent.  What remains to be seen is if leaders will emerge who have the brains and guts to seize the moment and free us from the oligarchs.  Let’s see what it’s like after August (66.66%).

A Night at the Opera

As the Cuomo Tragicomedy grinds on the only thing that is certain is that by the end the voters of New York will wish they had Andy back as governor.  Not that he is a good governor.  Far from it.  He is a petty vindictive dope.  But compared to what will follow he is Pericles.

And really, I am just tuning in for the laughs.  The first high note will be when the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences takes back Andrew’s Emmy Award.  That will strike at the very heart of who he is.  The loss of legitimacy will probably force him to resign his office.

The second important moment will be when Fredo turns on him.  All of this scandal has been terrifying for Fredo.  He doesn’t really know how to navigate these treacherous straits.  So far, he has gotten by leaning on the fraternal loyalty schtick.  It’s definitely wearing thin and eventually he’ll have to move against Andy.  It will have to involve some flavor of Fredo being the victim of all this dishonesty.  If I thought Fredo was bold enough I’d guess he’d go transgender.  That would completely inoculate him from the contagion of patriarchal guilt.  And who knows, maybe someone will think it up for him.  That would be a great sideshow.  He could even change his last name to Cuoma to literally divorce himself from the masculine gender.  I’m hoping it will work itself out on air on CNN.  Possibly Don Lemon can perform some kind of ritual mounting of Fredo to symbolize the defeat of white straight cis hetero something or other.  Well, whatever they come up with won’t be that funny but still, it’ll be worth a laugh or two.  It’s built into the trade mark Chris Cuomo deer in the headlights look into the camera.  In fact, it’s a family trait.  I remember I was told about the press conference where Andy was asked about the public policy of his administration in sending COVID patients back into the nursing homes to infect the other patients.  When I viewed the video, Andy had that same deer in the headlights look on his face.  I’m not even sure he knew what the policy was.  It just shows that Mario’s sons aren’t all that very bright.

But as I say, what will follow Andy in the Governor’s mansion will make him look like Abraham Lincoln in comparison.  It will be a vindictive woman of color and she will torture everyone in that state until they flee in horror.  It should be marvelous.  I will especially enjoy her torturing her white sisters relentlessly.  I assume they will be the primary subject of her wrath and they will be the ones dispossessed even more vindictively than white men.

I notice that I haven’t even addressed the sexual crimes that Andy has been accused of.  So far, they still pale in comparison to what Groper Joe got away with in the Senate.  We won’t even consider what Bill Clinton got up to as Governor of Arkansas.  Andy kissed a couple of women and I think he touched a woman’s stomach under the pretense of admiring her abs.  And he propositioned a couple of them too.  Well as a Democrat leader of a blue state, these are hanging offenses.  And I couldn’t be happier that they are being used as the icing on the cake for shoving him out of office.  All of these male feminists should have to suffer the consequences of advocating the double standards of modern feminism.  I will relish every moment of his obligatory groveling to the matriarchy.

And finally, what will the future hold for Andy?  Could he actually serve time?  Probably not for the COVID deaths.  That was just the usual stupidity of elected officials.  For that you get kicked out of office.  But could he be locked up for sex crimes?  I think he might!  So, there could be even more fun to come.

O momma mia, momma mia, momma mia let me go!
