This morning I had a flashback. I was arriving at a breakfast meeting I didn’t want to be at. I had the radio on. I was cold. Just before I turned the car off new broke of a plane hitting the World Trade Center. I immediately thought of terrorism, not world war as the target clearly had more psychological impact than military value, but also remembered that it was not the first time a plane had hit a tall building in New York. I held out that it could be a terrible accident.
The news had made it into the meeting and cut it short. That was the only good news I had that day.
Upon returning to the office someone had a monitor up with a news feed. Within a few minutes i watched live as another plane hit the second tower. There was no doubt left.
I called it a day and left to find my wife. Her parents were in town and when I arrived at the house they told me what I already knew. Once I determined everyone was safe and accounted for we took our cars out to fill up the tanks. We got back and hunkered down for the day listening intently as it all unfolded.
Our home at the time looked out over the city. I walked out back with my father-in-law and took in a empty sky. Not even jets from the local base were up as far as we could see. Truly a unique experience.
It seemed that the day progressed very slowly. We heard about the Pentagon being hit. We have relatives working there. One of our relatives survived to have her entire department killed. This would become a common story.
The rest of America had also woken up to death on our shores. They were spending the day the same as we were… watching it live.
Let there be no doubt.
I haven’t Forgotten. I will not Forget.

Or is it?
The Wu-Tang Flu has parted the clouds which have long darkened our skies and shined the bright light of Truth upon us! Hallelujah!
Here’s what we know:
Don’t use Public Transportation.
Don’t use Public Education.
Don’t use Public Restrooms.
Don’t use Public Streets.
Don’t use Public Facilities of Any Kind… and Certainly Don’t Count on them to work as Promised.
Why? Because you’ll DIE.
And, if in the off chance you don’t die, you’ll kill Granny just by visiting her… you selfish, murdering, toilet paper hoarding A-Hole!
The lesson here is, buy your own car, own your own home, cook your own food, don’t pick your nose, poop in your own bathroom, home-school your kids or use private schools with small class sizes, take ownership of the streets and roads around you as well as your communities like… we… used… to. Live at your own risk.
Of course, the “Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste” crowd is screaming for MORE GOVERNMENT! But I ask you, how is that Universal Health Care working for the Italians, Germans, French, Indians, Iranians, Chinese, etc. etc? Do the Mass Grave/Burn Pits come ‘free of charge’ because of their ‘amazing’ health schemes? Yes, yes they do. Cool! We definitely need some of that…
In the end here’s what the takeaway is, we might as well have been attacked. Look at this like WWIII. This virus appears to have been crafted intentionally if not released intentionally.
We as a nation are more vulnerable now than ever in history exactly because we have abdicated our personal responsibility to nameless, faceless, bureaucrats who happily accept that power over us. We have chosen via the people we have elected to live at everyone else’s risk. You all know the old adage, “When Everyone Owns It, Nobody Owns It.” Look around… it’s true. This very horrible, bad, terrible idea is being demonstrated for all the world in real-time.
Now there is no time.
So the Socialism that has permeated modern America should now be dead for all time.
Or, will we collectively beg for more of what got us here?
And, hoard Toilet Paper…
(As an aside, you might also note that living in a Big City is a bad idea. Pushing your Grandparents into a Nursing Home is a bad idea. Using Public Schools as Baby Sitters is a bad idea. Not Saving a Dime is a bad idea. Taking your sh*tty politics to places that are doing just fine and changing them into the sh*thole you just had to escape from is just Bad. Hoarding Sh*t you can’t eat or has a short Shelf Life is also Ba… no, that’s just stupid. I hope you enjoy every spoonful of your piping hot bowl of toilet paper. As I tap this out it becomes clear how we got here.)

For the record, I believe Climate Changes. Were we not taught that the Appilacian Mountains were carved out by Glaciers? Have we not accepted that the Earth has been everything from a hot gaseous ball, molten material and a world of Ice? The question is do Humans effect it? The answer is possibly. But as it stands we cannot define a problem. And, if you cannot define it then you cannot offer a cogent solution should there be one. Additionally, if you buy into Humans killing everything they touch then there are only two solutions. Kill all humans or Kill those humans refusing to change their behaviors in a fashion as we mentioned above has no definition. But let’s pretend you think such beneficial behavior can be defined, like buying brand new light bulbs instead of using the ones you have until they burn out then buying ones you’re restricted to because you’re too stupid to see the benefit of cost savings over the long run… and it must be imposed upon countless millions of humans right damn now… or else. Working from that point of view we must do three things. 1. Convert immediately to Nuclear Power. 2. Immediately Destroy China. 3. Immediately Destroy India. (Russia would be ‘on deck’ as would countless other 3rd World countries.)
The truth is that modern Socialists have co-opted the environmental movement and are using Climate Change Horror (No science, just simpathetic scientists who are conviced you’re stupid and they are not.) as a tool to convince useful idiots that the World would be a better placed if everyone just surrendered to Socialism and put them permenantly in control of Everything. Just ask Patrick Moore, the Founder of Greenpeace. (Better yet, read his book linked here.) Socialism is, of course, the ideology of Force and Acceleration, not to mention Class Stasis…Call it what you will, Democratic, Progressive, Liberal, Communist, Fascist or whatever name they want to call themselves once one of the previous is assigned the appropriate stigma. This is what we are facing, whether it’s being regurgitated by a 14 year old girl from Demark or an octigenarian ex-president of the United States.
That’s the Reality.
Is that an Option?

Socialism is not a Race… Socialism is a Poison.
Socialism is a political ideology fabricated by White European Aristocrats designed to solidify their control of Europe as they watched the imminent demise of their cherished Feudal System. Socialism was crafted by Aristocrats and Landed Gentry in order to create Class Status. It protected the power and control of all things they enjoyed prior to the final demise of the Monarchies in Europe. The likes of Hegel, Dewey, Marx, Engels etc., knew full well that if they stood by and did nothing as the unwashed rose up and tore down the oppressive Fiefdoms which had been the status quo for centuries that all of their wealth and influence would disappear with them.
The Aristocracy was quick to see the writing on the wall and a solution was created foisting upon the population an idea which has resulted in greater oppression, death and destruction than any other governing theory man has ever known. This ‘new’ Socially ‘democratic’ Ideology was specifically framed to pander to the masses by providing the perception of having a voice and cloaked in saccharine promises of ‘Fairness’ and ‘Equality’ while intentionally delivering none of it. The Rich only wanted to keep their Power… and it worked.
Simply…. Socialism is a self-serving lie perpetuated upon common people who were reacting to hundreds of years of oppression at the hands of the ‘anointed’ and were desperately seeking an alternative. Sadly, they were sold one.
Criticizing Socialism, the countries that practice it and especially those individuals that advocate it in a modern society…
… is not Racist. It is the Right thing to do. The fate of humanity depends on it.
Socialism fails every time it’s tried. It doesn’t matter how you qualify it. You can call it Democratic, Super Fun or Save the Women, Children and Puppies Act… it always ends badly for everyone.
So here we are today.
This poison of Democratic Socialism has infiltrated our government.
These treasonous, and worse…elected, anti-American operatives are so comfortable with their perceived power that they are now being honest about who they really are. This is good. For too long we have suffered the incremental move to the left in this country propelled by our elected officials and when pointing it out have been dismissed as fools, idiots and conspiracy-minded bigots. Well now they’re out in the open and yet again what the last decade has shown us is that there are few conspiracies remaining which have not been proven true all along.
It is to our advantage that these people are feeling secure in their horrific ideas as it becomes easier to see them…
Where are they?
They are the entire Democrat Party (Take a look at the Democrat National Platform and compare it to the platform of Communist Party USA. You can find both online.) …and an unhealthy part of the Republican Party. They are the bureaucracy we talk about but never seem to confront. They are found in every government office and at every level from city council to federal regulator. They seek and secure any office which has the ability to force individuals to bend to their will.
In the end, whatever race, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation they might belong to is irrelevent.
They are enemies of a free people. They are the enemies of our individual rights. And they are enemies of the greatest experiment in self government the world has ever known, The United States of America.

Has anyone noticed the “Abolish the Electoral College!” outrage has all but disappeared?
Do you Wonder Why?
Magically, it seems, the scream for Mob Rule by eliminating the Electoral College is nowhere to be found. This is because the Democrat Socialist Workers Party (DNC) realizes they may just need it if they’re hoping to defeat Trump and secure the White House. Any Hope they have of moving the country back to the Left may hinge on the Electoral College.
As a note: To me, this is always a fun, fascinating and enlightening, event in politics. Anytime a bunch of insincere hypocrites on either side of the aisle abandon the very messaging they swear are ‘foundational’ principles due to political expediency during election cycles you know there is a reason. To me it’s even more profound and educational than more mundane and expected acts of hipocracy once we elect them. In other words, the issues at hand are either ‘foundational’ as in pure democracy/mob rule or they are not. Clearly, as demonstrated by the deafening sound of silence from the Democrat Socialist Presidential hopefuls, Abolishing the Electoral College is not. Leaving the destruction of the electoral college on the doorstep of the orphanage simply illustrates the demagoguery.
And that’s funny.
However, here’s the upside to this mysterious vanishing of Electoral College hatred, it will come back.
If… If… you start hearing, in a Mass Media kind of way, about getting rid of the Electoral College again, prior to November 3rd, 2020… The Democrats will be admitting Defeat.
Mark my word.
These Socialist Authoritarians will never go away, but I find their sudden honesty refreshing.
Frankly, I think they should embrace their reality and go for it.
Epstein – Weiner 2020!
Sit Down, Shut up!
Mob Rule or Else!
(I’m offering the above campaign slogans free of charge. Use at will, Lefties.)

Now more than ever China needs Hong Kong to remain an engine of Capitalism.
We’ve talked before about Socialist Countries existing at the teat of Capitalist Countries. Socialism cannot create wealth. Nothing has changed.
When China took control of Hong Kong in 1997 it was widely thought the Socialist country would quickly destroy all that made Hong Kong prosperous. Many believed, with good reason, that the oppressive, individual hating, top-down governing ideology would not be able to tolerate the freedom and individual liberty associated with Hong Kong.
Surprising the world, China instead chose to isolate Hong Kong from the rest of the country. It was a brilliant move by horrible people. China held Hong Kong as an asset in its ‘portfolio’ with the realization that the prosperity Hong Kong created was essential to the perpetuation of China’s oppressive Socialist Ideology.
Don’t be fooled… Hong Kong remained an irritant to many of the Elitist Chinese Politicians. But economically it was a sound decision if it was the life of the oppressive, human hating, Chinese Socialist ‘Utopia’ which ultimately mattered. Those 1997 Autocrats in waiting were on the precipice of unimaginable wealth to be gleaned from a relatively new trade partnership with the United States. The full absorption of Hong Kong could wait a little while until a new engine of wealth was fully realized…
Fast forward to 2019…
The overt move to bring Hong Kong ‘into the fold’ of China’s Democratic Socialist Dictatorship has been underway for a little over a decade. But a disruption, an Orange Swan if you will, occurred which turned the finely set table over.
Suddenly something changed.
The people of Hong Kong rediscovered their value when the prettiest girl in the room decided she ‘ain’t got no sugar’.
China’s ‘new’ engine of wealth, the United States, decided not to play anymore. Hong Kong was back!
This move alone has thrown China’s long term plans into question.
The resistance from the United States to the contemporary trade agreements with China has provided Hong Kong with the ability to resist… making Hong Kong important once again. China once again needs them… badly…
China’s long term existence is questionable, at best, without the United States and is certainly headed for a catastrophe without both the United States and Hong Kong combined.
This is an important Global event and deserves all of our attention.

I sincerely hope the Burning of the Cathedral of Notre Dame is an accident.
Given the current political climate in Paris, this could be the beginning of very dark times.
It is a sad day when humanity loses a World Heritage Site the likes of Notre Dame.

Once upon a time in a land with 13 different time zones, a bunch of Horrid Socialists would employ a tactic to determine where and how secrets were leaked…
The Barium Memo.
A specific document was coated with a radioactive isotope and disseminated within a group of suspected leakers. Later the security services would sweep the offices, homes, vehicles, spouses, children, neighbors, park benches, trash cans, supermarket aisles (ha… just a joke… there were no supermarkets. It’s a Socialist Utopia, there were ‘ques’.), etc. etc.
The ‘security’ services were able to figure out who and how information was passed to interested outside parties.
The offending party was then escorted to a Socialist Utopian Hotel Room located in the basement of the Lubyanka… not quite as nice as a Trump hotel…
Here in the United States, we decided that slowing contaminating human beings with radiation should be kept to a minimum, at least. So we adopted what I have now renamed the “BuzzFeed Memo”.
This is the same tactic except for different versions of the story are passed to various suspected parties and then the authorities wait to see where those versions end up. The trick is it has to be interesting enough to outside parties for them to run with it before any verification can be made. Those interested parties must be willing to act… immediately… haphazardly… for fear they might lose the first place position in what they consider a race for their livelihood.
1. The information must be explosive.
2. The information must confirm the interested party’s bias.
3. The information must support their established agenda.
It appears that Robert Mueller’s Special Council tired of the semi-accurate leaks emanating from his investigation. It seems clear… to me… that erroneous information was passed to certain suspected leakers within the investigation to find the where and how.
It would not shock me that those individuals will find themselves now separated from the investigation… whether it is made public is another question… but given the Council’s quick response to the BuzzFeed story and BuzzFeed’s reporters ‘standing by’ the information, there is little else it could be.
The Memo illustrates the Fake in News, but it also further demonstrates the complete and total take-over of our media outlets by more, newer, horrid Socialists.
All of this is a result of the steady dose of Trump Serum administered to the Media over the last 3-years… and it must continue as we need these people to tell us directly who they are so the American People can understand the poison they represent.
The best part? Think with a Smile… there is an office where sits a lawyer attached to the FBI Special Council Investigation, head in hands, Sh*tting their pants.
It is a Good Day.

According to Nate Silver at 538 the Democrat Takeover of the House of Representatives is basically inevitable. If you ask Nate, the odds are 76% in favor of the Democrat Socialists.
If you’re not concerned…
Here was Nate Silver’s prediction for the 2016 Presidential Election:
Are we being set up for “The Russians Meddled!” again? Or will it be “Trump colluded with the Chinese!”?

Is it Xenophobia?
The Cherokee Nation has spoken:
“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said. “Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation” – Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr.
What Mr. Hoskin is refusing to accept is the Reality that Elizabeth Warren is simply an “Undocumented Cherokee”. Ms. Warren is here whether Mr. Hoskin and his Tribe, like it or not. Since she is already claiming Cherokee Heritage and has acted as a member in good standing of the Cherokee Nation for Decades it is only reasonable that the Cherokee Nation accept her and provide full rights and benefits as possessed by every Cherokee Tribe Member. I should remind Mr. Hoskin that Senator Warren has contributed greatly to the Tribe from her representation as a ‘Person of Color’ at Harvard to Cookbooks highlighting uniquely Native American Cuisine. Senator Warren has promoted the Tribes by personally excelling through a life of Socialist politics while positively absolutely and without question not capitalizing on her Native American Identity.
My message to Mr. Hoskin is as follows:
Dear Mr. Hoskin Jr.,
I hope the Sovereign Nations can pry themselves away from what civilized people would consider a 19th Century mindset.
The World is Not Flat, Mr. Hoskins.
Elizabeth Warren is Native American because she says she is. You must respect that.
