A Family Squabble

If I remember this joke it goes something like this;  An International Socialist and A National Socialist walk into a Civil War park…

Something smells fishy, even orchestrated, about an event where a group of Global Socialists and their cabal of Useful Elitist A-holes are positioned across from a group of National Socialists and their Confederacy of Useful Racist A-holes… and then the Mayor of Charlottesville Virginia, Michael Buffer, has all of the police leave the area.

Hmmm…

I have long espoused at this very ink-spot that the only thing Socialists like to do more than fight with Capitalists is fight with each other.  History demonstrates this over and over and over…

That brings us to the newly discovered town of Charlottesville Virginia.

And a Civil War Statue.

And a park chock full of various flavors of Socialism.

And some kind of a police department.

All culminating in Socialists doing what Socialists do… fighting with each other resulting in death.

Seriously, if you don’t want to die the very best starting point any person can adopt is to stay as far away from a Socialist as possible.  This also, necessarily, means don’t be one.  Losing ones life advocating government tyranny and state slavery is not a story that one should be proud of.  Promote the miracle of Individual Liberty and Freedom this country was founded upon from a distance.  Socialists are Dangerous!  Stay Away!  Let law enforcement handle them… unless they’re the Charlottesville PD, then just STAY AWAY and hope it sorts itself out.

Frankly, I think the Charlottesville Police Department, or rather a real police department from somewhere else, should have erected a giant Wall around these fools and made them hash it out until they came to terms.  That’s what Families are supposed to do.  “Take it out to the back yard!  Or, the Civil War Park! And don’t come home until it’s settled!”

Keep in mind folks, both of these groups believe in the subjugation of Human Beings.  One side tries to justify it using race, the other actively justifies it by their bizarre vacillating opinion of who is stupid based solely on whomever disagrees with them.  Both are poisonous.  Both ideologies have killed people, 9 Million in the case of the National Socialists and now well past 100 Million in the case of the International Socialists.

We would all be better off without any of these people.  But all we can do is promote the amazing Enlightenment Philosophy born from The Age of Reason this country was founded upon.  (Are we doing that anywhere?)

Our Socialist news outlets, or just “news outlets” to make it easy, want us to be angry with a President for not responding quickly enough in condemning one of the groups… BUT NOT BOTH.  If there were ever an illustration of the danger we face from our own press, this is it.

Look, Trump, as far as I can tell, has no ideological foundation.  I can’t place him as a Socialist any more than I can place him as a Capitalist.  I guess the only fitting label is the meaningless trash can term of “Populist” due to the fact it applies to individuals who have not given the time to think about what they actually believe in.  So “Populist” it is.

But what is really going on here?

True, it would have been the perfect time for Trump to come out swinging and go live with a full-throated defense of Individual Liberty and Freedom as clearly outlined in our Declaration of Independence.  It still is the perfect time for The Donald to explain the threat both of these groups of Evil A-Holes represent to that very Liberty and Freedom found only in the United States of America.  But refer back to what I just said… it’s not in him to understand these things.  We will have to be satisfied with some decent Supreme Court Nominees and a partial dismantling of an out of control bureaucracy.  We could find hope, if we’re looking hard enough, in the fact that he is forcing the Establishment RINO class to go on the record so the rest of us know who not to give money to and vote against in the primaries.  However that has yet to be proven out.

But back to what is really going on here?

Well, it seems pretty simple.

The Russia thing has run its course.  None of us care… at least not in terms of what Trump was doing.  A lot of us care about Hillary, Podesta, the DNC etc.  And that, that, that cannot be allowed to happen.  It’s getting uncomfortable for our homegrown Elitist Klass and thus a new narrative must be born.

Send in the Clowns…. to a Virginia park…. in a city none of us ever heard of…. seemingly out of the blue.

Don’t fool yourselves.  This theater in the park was long in the making.  The Liberals are desperate, and When all else fails… play the race card.  (Have you noticed nobody is talking about the horrors of International Socialism?  It’s all about Race.  How convenient.)

So there we were minding our own business when Terry McCauliffe and the crowd put together a show timed with a ready to eat message telling the world how Trump is a NAZI  (National Democratic Socialist).   -In all honesty, that’s giving the man a lot of credit as there is no evidence I can point to that he has thought enough about political ideology to arrive even at that.  But I digress.-

Therefore the new Narrative this Fall, when we all start paying attention again, is going to be “The Trump Administration, with specific names placed on “must go” lists, are a bunch of Racist NAZI’s! (Of course the whole Socialist thing will be glossed over because the press knows we all went to public school and have no idea that the NAZI’s were Socialists just like their Soviet buddies around the world with really only one difference and that being the ownership of production, but we can chat about that for persons brave enough to learn something down in the comments.)

That’s it folks, it’s all about a New Message for the Fall.  You didn’t buy the Evil Russian Conspiracy, sooooo… It’s a shiny new ‘thing’ to move your attention away from the Slavs and onto a well-worn page of the Communist Playbook.  Saul Alinsky would be proud, sadly, at the success some of his old tactics can still generate.

The take away?

If you want to gauge the success of Trump, out front and more importantly behind the scenes, just look at the Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth being piped into your home via the TV.  One might think that he is truly as successful as he says he is… judged by the screaming.

 


Occupy Washington

It’s become Clear that just when you think it’s OK to stop Spraying for them,

They Come Back….

But this time They’re wearing Brooks Brothers and Bow Ties.

No more Dirty, Parent’s basement Dwelling, Brand New Apple Using, Porn Surfing, Starbucks Swilling, Sign Misspelling, Female Molesting, Money Stealing, Crapping on Cop Car Twenty Something’s….

Nope.

Now They’re showing up in the Halls of Congress.

They’re Leaders are well dressed Individuals like John McCain, Harry Reid, Lindsey Graham, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan.

They have forgone setting up a tent by the reflecting pond and opted for apartments in Georgetown, Arlington and Adams Morgan.

What they can’t get from the Starbucks they installed in the basement, They drink on F Street while leaving most of the Stealing, Misspelling and Molesting to their Interns.

The only Surprise is how long it took them to take over the Entire Hill.

And, that we have yet to see Video of Pelosi squatting over a Park Police Cruiser.

May be since They’re figuratively doing Exactly That to all of Us they don’t Feel the Need.

Some things are just too big to get on Film.

In the End, They are the Same Collective of “thinkers” we watched Pollute a Park in the Financial District.

Except the Damage isn’t limited to a single block.  It extends across the entire Nation.


Machiavelli

Politicians love to hate him.

We should hate that they love him.

It’s fascinating how Machiavelli has earned an evil reputation from those who employ his tactics most often.  The people who fling his name as an epithet then go on to preach “pragmatic” solutions to our problems…

Machiavelli was indeed a preacher of ruthless pragmatism.  But, only under certain circumstances.

For many of us our exposure to Machiavelli is limited to The Prince.  Often the instructors who assigned this brilliant gem did not understand it, or if they did they chose not to present their students with the piece in context.  The Prince was an application for employment.  Nothing more.  Niccolo had bills to pay, just like we do.  He needed work and at the time the only need for a political advisor was by a monarch (Lorenzo de’ Medici).  So he wrote “the rules” on how to be a prince hoping to get a paying gig.

His “solutions” to princely problems were simple for the most part.  Kill anyone who has claim to the throne along with their family… (lest you be killed.)  Tell your subjects whatever they want to hear then do what you need, or want, to do to manage your kingdom… (lest you be killed.)  Isolate and blame an external enemy, real or imagined, for any and all problems within the kingdom… (lest you be killed.)  Make compacts and or create ties with the powerful and wealthy kingdoms that could pose a threat to yours… (lest you be killed.)  There’s more… but I think you get it.

Considering this was the only type of working government in existence at the time, and one could assume a Prince valued his life, then these rules make sense when spelled out, right?

Aside from monarchy in principle and design, where is the evil?  We’re told it lies in the idea that “the ends (not being killed) justifies the means.”  I might agree… if a prince could just quietly slip away without fear that these rules would be applied upon him from another prince.  But at the time that was not an option.

That was then, this is now.

Fast forward…  Look around you and see all of the examples of these rules being used when there is no threat of death, only the loss of power.

The people we should fear most call this “Just Politics”.

The Statists champion free speech only so long as it’s speech they agree with.  Political administrations promise to “investigate and bring to justice” those who create the housing depressions, kill diplomats and sell guns to drug cartels, when it was they who did it and continue to do things similar.  The “occupy protesters” who preach love and tolerance yet grab, push, shout down and spit on those who disagree with them.  You see it in every politician who champions individual freedom yet insists you are too stupid to make decisions for yourself and must be led, or “nudged” to the “right” answers.  It’s every leader who creates diversions, changes the meaning of words and combines multiple issues in order to leave you, the public, confused and uninformed.

These are the tactics of Princes in waiting.  The only problem is our current leaders have nothing to lose but power over you.  Nobody is waiting in the wings to wipe them and their family out of existence.  This fact makes their behavior… well… Sinister.

Our politicians are fully aware such behavior buys them time until you lose interest.  Once you lose interest you forget.  When you forget, you vote for them again, and they keep their power…

Fortunately, today’s politics is not about life and death.  Unfortunately, today’s politics is about getting and keeping one’s power over others.  It’s about amassing huge amounts of wealth based on using government force to benefit your friends and punish your enemies.  (The U.S.Costitution, if followed and enforced, was designed to protect us from this.)  Based on his writings in Discourses on Livy, Niccolo believed that a republic was the preferred structure for government.  Although he doubted it could ever be sustained.

I think he may be right.

Why the “Republicans” can No Longer run on Limited Government

A New Gallup poll has American’s seeing Big Government as the greatest threat to the United States.

To the tune of 72%!

This is very bad news for the majority of the Republican Party.

It has long been the tradition of Republican Candidates to run on Limited Government.  This is typically paired with a promise to necessarily reduce it’s size as well.

In fact, many a Republican has won elected office using just such rhetoric.

Well… times are changing, and this news from Gallup cannot be helpful.

I probably don’t need to remind any of you that there is a new, small, vocal and active group of representatives who reside in Washington hailing from the Taxed Enough Already wing of the Republicans.  And here lies the problem.

The Establishment Republicans, or RINO’s, enjoy a large majority of membership within the party as it’s currently made up.  And, by being the heavy majority they control all things Republican, which has enabled them to shut out that “bothersome” minority of representatives that not only believe Big Government must be reduced in size and scope but act on that belief.  (For those of you who follow along, that would be the Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Trey Dowdy types.)

Well, with 72% of the population seeing the Leviathan as the single biggest problem we face as a Nation… the Republican Candidates who run on such rhetoric might be expected to perform on their promises!  Combine that with an already present TEA party minority who have been in the district long enough to know their way around, it spells trouble with a “T”.  The Horror!

This poll cannot make the John McCain wing of the Republican Party happy at all.   I can feel the urgent closed-door meetings being called as I type this.  Will they all switch parties?  Will they come up with a new message for this election cycle like “Hey… Government isn’t all bad.  We’re not watching absolutely EVERYTHING you do.”?  Or may be “Obama Care… we oppose it, but there’s nothing we can do!”.

Stay tuned!

This will end up being a very interesting mid-term election.
