Hat Tip to Chemist for this Link. Red States Starting to Coordinate Their Interests

Here’s the beginning of a counterattack against the corporate thugs who carry water for the Marxists.  Hitting the banks where it hurts is a very good beginning.  They should do the same to the banks that cancel people for free speech.  It’s finally good to see some coordination getting started.

 

 

 

 

Who Will Be the Hero of the Story This Year?

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.

DeSantis Addresses the Waukesha Attack

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.

DeSantis Begins His Re-Election Bid

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.

Something Doesn’t Add Up

The recent headlines about Greg Gutfeld leading the Late-Night Comedy shows highlighted a phenomenon that has already shown up in the cable opinion shows.  In that race Tucker Carlson is leading his competitors consistently.  And this has led to the Left’s unrelenting hostility toward him.  They protest to get his sponsors to boycott him.  They’ve even attacked his home and family.

So here we see that huge numbers of Americans agree with the opinions that Gutfeld and Carlson represent and support their message as opposed to the message that is supported and pushed by virtually every center of power in the United States and most of the civilized world.  But this large group of Americans find that their opinions have absolutely no effect on the messages or behavior of organizations that supposedly are based on public opinion and preferences.  The media (other than Fox News to some extent) pretend that the great majority of Americans believe in the things that are the opposite of what Gutfeld and Carlson defend.  Obviously if giving the public what they want was important to these organizations they could do that easily and profitably.  They could have their own right-wing commenters competing head-to-head with Fox and providing them with some of the audience that Fox currently has all to itself.  And they could do this without losing their leftist viewers.  They could keep their Maddows and Scarboroughs.  All they would be doing is accommodating both sides of the aisle.

But they don’t.  Why?

Because it’s not about money.  It’s a religious war.  It’s a crusade against the infidel.  Our beliefs and even objective reality are anathema to their woke ideology.  At this point there is no more live and let live.  No matter how crazy they become we must acquiesce.  Gay marriage, transgender toddlers, white guilt, slave reparations, green new deal, guaranteed basic income, defund the police.  All of it.  There will be no end to this.  And regardless of whether we win elections or get the Supreme Court to agree that these things are unconstitutional they will not stop.  If all else fails they’ll send Antifa and BLM goons out into the streets to beat us into submission.

There’s only one way we escape this.  We have to organize directly against them.  We’re going to have to pay politicians their beloved PAC money to get them to do our bidding.  We’re going to have to organize effective boycotts of companies that don’t do what we want.  We’re going to need our own laws to punish them when they trespass against us.  We’ll have to find leaders who will be willing to punish criminals that attack us.  We’re going to have to become our own nation within this nation and build walls to protect ourselves from our enemies.

Or if that’s too much trouble then we might as well surrender and mouth their lies and lunacy.  Because if we’re not willing to do the work to defend ourselves then we will be forced to surrender.  They will crush us just as they will crush those poor fools who let themselves be led to the slaughter on January 6th.  There is no way for any of us to stand up to them individually.  We need an organization that is extremely well funded, represented by experienced lawyers, based in a jurisdiction that cannot be infiltrated by their legislative, judicial or executive branch representatives and well protected by a large, powerful police force loyal to that state.  The sooner we begin organizing against these thugs the sooner we get our lives back.

Or just give up and dig yourself a hole in the ground and jump in.

A Series of articles on Red State Autonomy by Dave Reaboi

Substack is full of writers from our side Dave Reaboi has a site called Late Republic Nonsense.  He’s a friend of Michael Anton and he seems to know a bunch of interesting people.  He even sponsors some idiosyncratic content like haute cuisine cooking lessons from Michael Anton.  How’s that for unexpected.

Anyway I’ve been talking for a while about Red State Autonomy.  Reaboi calls it Red America autonomy.  Putaituh, putatuh, whatever.

Anyway here are the links.  So far it seems sort of introductory.  But I’ll bookmark his links and follow along to see what he comes up with.  After all he seems to know some movers and shakers.  And he has some interesting stuff on his site.

I’ll have to pass the Michael Anton cooking links onto Camera Girl.  This could be my way of bringing her over to the Right.  She’s not very political but her instincts are good.

 

 

 

 

We Don’t Have to Outnumber the Left – We Do Have to Refuse to Be Their Slaves

When you hear the daily drumbeat about how “white people” are becoming a minority and therefore doomed, do yourself a favor, relax.  This is an intentional psyop meant to spread despair.  Certainly, the Left is using the invasion of America by the third-world as a way to gain permanent control of the government.  And the anti-white propaganda is meant to spread fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) among our side.

But the truth is that there is way over a hundred million people on our side and that is a mighty nation.  What is needed on our side is organization, planning and the will to achieve the goals we plan.  We don’t need to control the whole continental United States.  We need to establish control over an area where we intend to remain.  Maybe it’s a swath of the center and southern area of the country.  But wherever it is, the people there have to decide that, come what may, they’re going to take control over their lives.  They are going to have to tell Washington, “No!”  They will have to have a plan that includes all the things that the feds are not going to be allowed to dictate.  And that plan has to include exactly how they will prevent interference from outside.  This will include many policy strategies but specifically they need to know exactly how they will prevent the feds and their surrogates from flooding the red areas with migrants and Antifa and just plain hostile actors of whatever stripe.  So defending themselves from Washington will be critical but it isn’t the only thing necessary thing.  What the policy developed will consist of are things that will allow the people to thrive.  And our people thriving is something that’s been missing for at least the last fifty years.

To thrive we must establish a government that has our best interests in mind and institutes policies that reinforce those interests.  As an example, the government of Hungary now pays married women with working husbands to stay home and have Hungarian children.  In fact, if a woman has four children, she’ll never pay taxes again for the rest of her life.  Pretty forward thinking I’d say.  We could do the same.

It wouldn’t be hard at all to imagine a whole slate of policies that would make our community the most prosperous, harmonious and fertile population on the planet.  All it will take is the guts to say, “No more.”  It would require the state to say illegal immigrants are not allowed to work here.  With the digital information available today that would be the simplest thing in the world.  It wouldn’t even require military force.  Once someone can’t work what can he do but leave?  Let him go to California or New York.  They want these people, let them have them.  Once again all it takes is the guts to do it.  The government only has to enforce laws that are already on the books to punish employers who allow illegal immigrants from working.  And there is a slew of other policies that would turn around the awful situation you see today.  In a state that was working for us we could have the National Guard round up the Antifa/BLM rioters and hand them over to a prison where they can have the choice of twenty years at hard labor or permanent deportation to the Blue States.  And the elimination of welfare would go a very long way to discouraging freeloaders.  Restoring the Bill of Rights is another must.

So, stop panicking every time the New York Times or MSNBC trumpets the glad tidings that there are more non-white children being born in the United States than white.  What matters more is whether Americans are willing to start guaranteeing their children the life they want here in America.  The population numbers are a fait accompli.  The will to demand what used to be our birthright is the thing that must be thought about.

We need a place where we can be Americans and not feel like that’s a sin.  Let the Guatemalans and the Somalis celebrate their special status in California and Minnesota.  Let’s see if we can have our own thing in Florida and Mississippi and Texas and Kansas and Montana.

What you should really be worried about is that Americans will be too afraid to demand their freedom back.  That is something to fear.  Because then there is no hope and any of us who don’t want to be slaves must flee and become refugees.  That is something to fear.

Where, When and How Does Sanity Reappear?

The more that happens the less sure I am that we’re near the bottom.  In fact, there does not seem to be any bottom.  When New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, Atlanta, St. Louis and Portland have all become the new Detroits and freedom of speech has been ended and Washington decides who can work and live and even walk down the street, then what further outrage is left as unthinkable?

The sex of newborns is to be left off birth certificates.  Children will be sexually mutilated by their parents or social workers if they can confuse a grade school child into acting confused about its sex.  Sexual deviants will be brought into the classroom to proselytize children about sodomy.

Voting fraud is being codified in the Congress of the United States and the President is openly abandoning the borders of this country to millions of additional criminal aliens.

Maybe it will have to get much, much worse before the citizens of this country finally reach a point where they risk taking a stand.  Maybe when the government begins confiscation of private property.  Let’s say they decide to tax 401K savings at some prohibitive rate in order to use this money for slavery reparations.  Would that be enough to trigger direct action?  How about if as part of the equity they’ve been talking about they change the tax code to punish people who suffer from the stigma of whiteness?  Perhaps taxing them at a triple rate compared to everyone else?

But maybe not.  I’ve seen no indication that large numbers of people are even close to saying, “No more!”  Maybe there is no limit.  Maybe we’ve just become empty men.  Maybe there’s no fight left in us at all.  Are we just the frog in the slowly heated pot?  Will we just let ourselves be cooked as long as it’s done nice and gradually?

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately.  Here we are almost five years after Trump’s election and we’re farther in the hole than we were in 2016.  I’m beginning to believe there is no point at which the people of this country will stand up and tell Washington they’ve had enough.

The only hint that anything stands between us and the Oligarchy is Ron DeSantis in Florida and maybe Greg Abbott in Texas.  So how about this, those two guys are up for re-election.  The first sign that there is no hope is if they don’t get re-elected.  Let’s call that the first test.

Next sign is if they cave or are forced by the federal government to change direction and obey Washington.  That’s the second test.

These two are both negative tests that only have to be avoided.  But even if we pass both of these the third is a positive test.  Within two years one of them has to score a major victory against the Oligarchy.  And what would that be?  For me that would have to be a showdown where the feds had to back down.  Let’s say one of those two governors crushed the Antifa/BLM movement in all the cities in his state.  That would qualify.  Or if one of them nullified one of the major unconstitutional federal laws like affirmative action or cracking down on illegal aliens.  One of those things would make me believe there was hope.

I’ll say all three of these things would have to happen before the midterms.  I think that’s long enough to wait.  If nothing happens by then I’ll assume nothing will and I’ll start looking for a new home.  If any of you are thinking about these things too, I recommend that you put some kind of time limit on these things.  Otherwise, I have a feeling you’ll end up like the slowly cooked frog, comfortably numb.

DeSantis Shows Some Brains and Guts

When the Broward County school system voted to mandate masks in the schools, Florida Governor DeSantis let them know that their funding would be cut in accordance with the recent law outlawing mask mandates in the schools.  And the schools backed down.  Finally someone with guts willing to stand up to Fauci and the other nitwits in the COVID conspiracy.  Let the parents who want their six-year-olds to wear masks do so.  Let normal people live normally.

Now that’s Republican leadership.  Let the rest of the Red State governors take notes.

 

 

 

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.
