Jim Jordan’s Weaponization of the Federal Government Investigation is Truly Depressing

It’s much, much worse than we’ve heard.  I’ve started it at Shellenberger’s testimony and then it goes on for hours.  Obama set this in motion and the intelligence agencies have jumped on it with relish.  For this alone I’d shut down the FBI and the rest of them.  If Speaker of the House Johnson loves this country he should refuse to allow the Patriot Act to be renewed.  American Stasi.

Well, Maybe

I get an e-mail whenever Curtis Yarvin writes a post in his Substack; Gray Mirror.  Now Yarvin is a lunatic but an engaging and clever lunatic.  His answer to all of the ills of our society is always the same; install a king.  So, I’m always a little daunted when I consider reading his posts, not least of all because they are usually between five and ten thousand words long.  Yikes!  Luckily this one was on the low end of that range.

It was a gentle chiding of Richard Hanania for becoming a moderate.  I guess Hanania was being attacked in the media for being an alt-right partisan in his younger days.  Well, who wasn’t?  Anyway, after a few thousand words to ridicule the concept of classical liberalism Yarvin gets down to his bottom line.  Any and all progress against the woke left is hopeless because the oligarchy protects it and the only way to get rid of the oligarchy is with a king.

Well, maybe.

So, because our representative democracy has been hijacked by an oligarchy, according to him we should welcome a dictator.  And you wonder, how did that work out for the Romans?  Julius Caesar and Augustus were pretty good.  But after that, what a nightmare.  How do you keep the king from being a madman or an incompetent?  Yarvin has this idea that it would be like some kind of CEO for the country and there would be a board of directors who could hire and fire the king.

Well, maybe

But I’m guessing that stuffing that board would be like stuffing the Supreme Court.  And truth be told the board would be the oligarchs and they would just choose one of their oligarchi-est oligarchs to run their show.  And how in hell do you get something like this started?  No, there is no way out that way.

What seems to be the case is that we are heading for a crisis.  The old system and the way that it works is reaching a breaking point.  Those in charge seem to have a plan to permanently make the voting system just a rubber stamp for their regime.  And at the same time, they want to change the class system in this country from a middle-class dominant model to a feudal system with the peasants working for the oligarchs.  And to be totally honest it sure looks like they’re way ahead getting their plan done.  A big chunk of the millennials and zoomers have serf written all over them.

Well, maybe.

But the best laid plans of oligarchs and serfs oft time go to hell in the real world.  I still think it’s too soon to just throw in the towel.  The demolition of the American economy is preceding at such a breakneck pace that it is somewhat possible that a popular revolt might miraculously sweep the Democrats completely out of power long enough to allow actual representatives of the people to make drastic reforms and restore our interests.

Well, maybe.

After reading about the FBI gunning down that old guy in Provo, Utah I’m not feeling so chipper today.  I know the radical nature of the killing should help to delegitimize the institutions like the FBI.  And it probably does.  The man as described was obviously no threat to anyone.

“Neighbors who spoke with the Deseret News described Robertson as a markedly different person than what he portrayed online. One person called him a “teddy bear” known for his woodworking who would sit in the same seat at church every Sunday; another said he was barely mobile, weighed nearly 300 pounds and was unable to walk without a cane. He would drive to church, despite it only being about 200 yards from his home, because he had so much trouble moving around.

Neighbors also described a harrowing scene, with dozens of agents converging on the Provo house, rifles drawn and hiding behind bulletproof shields as flash bangs exploded.

“I just can’t believe that this man warranted that kind of response,” said Travis Clark, who lived up the street from Robertson.”

It makes me sick to think that the FBI has become a secret police agency, no different from the Stasi and the KGB.  In fact, worse than those organizations.  At least the KGB wouldn’t have allowed BLM and Antifa to burn down their own cities.  But maybe it will be this kind of gestapo tactics that convinces a solid majority of the American people that our “leaders” are really our overlords now and need to be replaced with something better.

Maybe, maybe not.

Tough day to be optimistic.

Who, Who Will Not Clap for Zalinskyyyyyy?

Stalinist Hall Monitor Michael Beschloss wants to know who will not wear the ribbon.

 

This guy is a walking, talking parody of the global oligarchic elite.  And his demand for applause accountability is such an echo of the Stalinist requirement for endless applause that it’s hilarious.  I think his next biography should be of North Korea’s Kim.  That should be about right up his alley.

Thoughts on Our New Status as a Banana Republic

Tomorrow and Wednesday I’m on the road.  So, posting will be iffy.  Of course, now that Brandon is unleashing the Stasi and the IRS to round up all of us Yellow Star folks maybe I’ll be stopped at the state border and forced into a cattle car.  I hope there will be lots of straw in the cattle car.  That stuff keeps the smell down in cattle cars, I hear.

Seriously, I feel the Left and their allies in the Deep State have crossed the Rubicon.  At this point I don’t think they’ll hesitate to come after all their enemies and punish them with every trick in the book.  I expect really bad stuff to begin happening to just about anyone they can identify as “not their friend.”

You know I expected this type of thing to happen but I didn’t think it would bother me as much as it does.  It really is a complete break with the America that I believed in as a young man.  This is no different from the East Germany that we read about back in the 1970s.  It’s right in line with the things I read in Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago.  There’s the bang on the door at night and jack-booted thugs carrying off someone into the dark.  Secret courts and show trials and rat-like characters like Merrick Garland and Joe Biden.

And of course, we will be powerless to hold any of these people responsible.  Just as with the Summer of George rioting and the election fraud in 2020 those responsible won’t suffer any consequences.  Whereas innocent people will have their lives ruined and be imprisoned and robbed of their livelihood by these rats.

Joe Biden and his drug-addled son Hunter shake down China and Ukraine for millions and there are no consequences even when the moron leaves evidence of his crimes out in the open.  The FBI and the media are his fixers and they’ll make sure that nothing interrupts the graft and corruption.  But at this point only the brain dead are unaware of the depths of Biden’s dishonesty and incompetence.

November truly will be the acid test.  If the Democrats aren’t swept out of power in a tidal wave, then there is literally no hope for this once free country.  If the Democrats aren’t banished then either the American people are already brain dead or the election fraud is so thorough that we’ll never see a fair election again.  And even if the Republicans take back the House and Senate, Biden’s re-animated corpse will still be torturing our country for two more years.  With tens of thousands of new IRS employees Biden will use the death by a thousand paper cuts on his enemies’ supporters.

Well, enough whining.  It’s only a few months until November and I’m sure I can keep busy working and playing until then.  And as the Good Book says “The truth shall set you free.”  It’s better to have the bad news than to be confused by the lies.  If the bad guys have won it’s best to know.  Then you can make the decisions you need to in order to figure out Plan B.

FBI Raids Mar A Lago – US Officially a Banana Republic

So they’ve taken the final step.

It’s great to see that the Stasi are doing everything they can to alienate half the country.  If we are able to take back control of the government it should be easy to find the votes to fire and cancel the pensions of most of the rats currently holed up in the Justice Department.  That should be the campaign slogan for 2022 and 2024.

So what we have are two separate standards of justice and selective enforcement based on the political alignment of the individual.  If you are Democrats or their agents you can burn down cities and even kill innocent citizens with complete impunity.  But even if you’re the former republican President of the United States you will be deprived of your constitutional protections using trumped up charges and corrupt Washington DC judges to do the bidding of Democrat political operatives in the Justice Department.

I’d say today marks the official beginning of the United States as a banana republic.  Don’t be surprised by anything.  Should really do wonders for the Democrats chances in November.  I wonder if this might get Brandon’s approval rating into the single digits by tomorrow.

For Once Reality Outparodies the Babylon Bee

This post from the Babylon Bee attempts to mock the FBI sting operation that was recently head in DC.  But the actual reports showing Capitol Police outfitted like Darth Vader attempting to shield the identity of an FBI plant dressed up as a fake antifa agitator was beyond parody.

Honestly, if anyone still doubts that we live in an occupied country just think about this.  The FBI was perfectly fine with BLM and antifa burning down areas of dozens of cities last year.  But they are going all out to entrap right-wing protestors with whatever false flag activities they can engineer.  FBI or Stasi, what’s the difference?

 

 

 

 

FBI, Stasi?  What’s the Difference?

Staatssicherheitsdienst or in English, the State Security Service was the East German arm of the KGB but it was commonly referred to as the Stasi.  They learned all the lessons that Stalin’s KGB could teach them and then in typical German fashion they made them more efficient.  Their hallmark was to eschew the gulag by making all of East Germany one giant prison.  Hundreds of thousands of East Germans were employed as informants on their families, friends and coworkers.  All types of brutality and coercion were used by the Stasi.  But their masterpiece was a technique called Zersetzung.

“The Stasi often used a method which was really diabolic. It was called Zersetzung, and it’s described in another guideline. The word is difficult to translate because it means originally “biodegradation”. But actually, it’s a quite accurate description. The goal was to destroy secretly the self-confidence of people, for example by damaging their reputation, by organizing failures in their work, and by destroying their personal relationships. Considering this, East Germany was a very modern dictatorship. The Stasi didn’t try to arrest every dissident. It preferred to paralyze them, and it could do so because it had access to so much personal information and to so many institutions.”

—Hubertus Knabe, German historian

What seems apparent to me is that the Left has lifted this technique and applies it to both their operations in the intelligence agencies and also in their cancel culture operations through the woke social media platforms.  Look at the definition, “by damaging their reputation, by organizing failures in their work, and by destroying their personal relationships…  It preferred to paralyze them, and it could do so because it had access to so much personal information and to so many institutions.”  These are the weapons of personal destruction that are on display throughout our culture.

What does it say about our country that the methods of communist dictatorships have been borrowed by our own federal police agencies?  Maybe it’s just a case of, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”  But the illegality of the techniques that are on display by the NSA and the FBI are wholly as despicable as what the Stasi did.  And I don’t mean that they did things like torture people and beat confessions out of them.  What I mean is that unlike Russia and East Germany our intelligence agencies are absolutely forbidden to violate the privacy laws inherent in the Bill of Rights.  But these prohibitions have been swept aside without even a pretense of due process.

The excesses of Russiagate and the recent case of the leaked text messages of Tucker Carlson show clearly that the FBI, NSA and other executive branch intelligence services no longer feel the need to pretend to follow the law.  They are clearly above the law and flaunt this status as a way to cow their targets.

When the East German government finally fell the records of the Stasi were exposed to public scrutiny and countless informants were exposed.  Wouldn’t it be liberating if a full accounting was finally made of the partisan crimes that the Obama Justice Department perpetrated in 2015, 2016 and 2017?  These treasonous acts very much deserve to be exposed and the culprits prosecuted.  The death penalty seems excessive.  I would say life in prison would be fair.  And I don’t suggest this as a form of revenge, although I would enjoy that.  I propose it as a deterrent against the next partisan hack who decides he disagrees with the results of an American election.  After all we grant enormous power and prestige to the law enforcement personnel who work at the highest levels of the Justice Department.  When they use that power to attack innocent Americans, they strike at the very heart of the American system.
