Death Rattle

Ladies and Gentlemen,
We are witnessing a historic moment on the History of the United States.
It has become clear the immensity of this episode is only going to become greater before it is over.
To understand what you’re seeing we must go back to 1960.
A large part of the 12-24 year old 1960 population figured out there was power in collective screaming. They learned to champion causes only some of which they understood.  They forged their identity in protest and labeled themselves the ‘counter-culture’. They cast away the societal norms the likes of Family, Religion and Americanism. They elevated themselves above all the “ignorant masses” who clung to those time-tested ideas and began a decades long mantra reminding themselves of their superiority. They sought positions where they could administer an intentionally subjective ‘fairness’ of their own varying definition.  They learned how to feel powerful.  When they looked in the mirror they saw the faces of the Deciders… the Administrators… the Philosopher Kings.
Now fast forward to 2016.
These same individuals are at least 67-years old, some are much, much, older.  (Yes… there are young ones, but they lack that romantic view of having ‘done something important’.  They lack a perceived legacy which is now under threat. They lack the same investment while sacrificing all of the other evolutionary rites and rituals society previously valued.)
These Aging Leftists are now finding themselves with no real Family, no real God and no real Understanding of the Greatest Experiment in Self Government the World has ever known.  Now they have watched the election of a person they believe is the antithesis of their Socialist Utopia…  and are powerless to stop him from tearing it down.  It’s all they had.

They are old…
They fully realize they may not make it 8 more years…
They have no identity other than those who dismantled the country as the Founders intended it to be…
They have no investment other than a war to create a Socialist Utopia, which they thought they had won long ago…
They see their lives as meaningless…  They are desperate…  They feel cornered…

We are witnessing the Death Rattle of a Mass Existential Crisis… a forced confrontation of what for most of them is the meaninglessness of their lives.

Be warned, these people are found on both sides of the aisle. Yes they associate more with one, but they know no party exclusively.  Do not underestimate them.  They must be approached with extreme caution…

I’m not kidding.

They are irrational… just as they have been all their lives. They are unreasonable… which is how they learned to secured something they call victory. They are unstable… because their fantasy is being threatened by reality.

It is time to walk softly, but carry a big stick.
It is time to take our country back, but keep one eye open.
It is time to show compassion, but remain firm while the damage we have suffered is repaired.

Tough Love.

In 20 years, the country will have other concerns.


I’ll take “The Definition of Fascism” for the win, Alex.

Forrest Trump

Run Forrest, Run!

A few years back I tapped out an observation regarding a strategy used by President Obama and Nansy Pelosi I termed “Blitzkrieg“. The Democrats had decided it was time to push as much Socialist Poison upon the United States as possible… all at once.

It was horribly brilliant.

Well, here we are again.  Only this time it’s the Republicans, let me rephrase that, the Trump Administration.  The strategy is still brilliant… just not horrible or poisonous.

Where Pelosi’s Blitzkrieg was ignored by the media, Trump does not suffer from a lack of opposition.  The Leftists own the press.  Period.  This is not news to anyone paying attention.  So Pelosi got a pass because it was all for ‘the greater good’ according to Elitist Aristocrats in the Media longing for a return of a King.

Now we are watching Donald Trump do the very same thing.

And what do we get?  We are being dosed with “Too Much Too Soon”… “We need more digestible bites”… “This loss in the Courts over a Travel Ban is a Huge Blow”… “We need to slow down the process!”

Hogwash.

What’s going on, and sadly it’s coming not just from the Democrats but from the Leftist Republicans as well, is screaming for more time to fabricate resistance to Trumps momentum.  It’s just darn difficult to bus minimum wage ‘protesters’ all over God’s Green Earth when you don’t know where they are needed most.  It’s also Very Expensive.  What?!  Do you think the Supporters of the Soft Slavery of Socialism are made of Money?!  Well, they are!  But that’s not the point!

The cries we are hearing to “slow down”, or critiques of the new Administration being “amateurish” are nothing more than pleading for additional time to get organized opposition in place.

Well I say stuff it.  Literally.

Rommel got it right.  Push Hard, Push Fast and Do Not Stop.  The Friction of War will not subside, but one can secure the offensive by not allowing opposition to organize.  You will suffer an occasional setback, but Forward is the direction one must continue to travel.  Even Pelosi understood this.  It was hard to recognize it on her face, but trust me, she got it.  (Cut her a break, it’s hard to recognize anything on her face.)

As far as I’m concerned there must continue to be a flurry of decisions and orders every day, Large and Small.  I don’t care about the press’ desire to have “more digestible” bites so they can try to convince you what a bad idea anything Trump wants to do is.  Frankly, nothing I’ve seen being pushed by the Trump Administration has fallen outside of topics we’ve argued for the last 30-years.  We all know where the other side stands.  It’s decidin’ time.

As far as those in the media who supposedly support all the things they’ve been supposedly supporting for the last 30-years… you should try a steaming hot cup of STFU.  We don’t need your help.  We’ve had enough of your “It’s just words” approach to destroying this country marginally slower than the Democrat Socialists.  We all recognize that if it doesn’t get done right damn now it isn’t going to get done.  We have seen this play… we have memorized the script.

You can’t get from here to there if you don’t actually intend to get from here to there… while you can still get back to there from here.

Just as Winston Groom’s character, our new president may not appear to know what he’s doing… but it’s only because he doesn’t recognize the limitations society has decided are appropriate for all of us to respect.  He is not of the Political Klass.  He has lived his entire life solving problems, not nurturing them for political benefit.  He is the Antidote with which we can break down the Established Leftist Disease permeating the Greatest Experiment in Self Government the World has ever known.

Bare in mind there is nothing new about the opposition Trump is facing.  There has never been a President who supported the Constitution in it’s entirety the Left liked.  Not one.  Even their arguments have become cliche.  It’s the same old crap… Racist, Bigot, Homophobe.  They should consider getting some new material.  But here we are.

At this point the only thing we should be hearing from every Republican, particularly Scott Brown, John McCain, Lindsey Graham etc. is “Run Forest, Run!”

I don’t care if they like him… to oppose him when he’s done nothing but support issues they have used to get elected year after year only illustrates their true Ideology.


Let’s play a Supreme Court game…

We are watching the Supreme Court Nomination Process for Neil Gorsuch, a judge many consider to be a ‘strict Constitutionalist’*, to fill the vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia.

The Socialist party of America and it’s army of the useful are now adopting the position that the seat was “Stolen” from them as the vacancy occurred roughly a year ago and within the Obama Presidency, Their reasoning is there was ample time to conduct a hearing and possibly swear in a Justice on President Obama’s watch. President Obama even went as far as nominating Merrick Garland, possibly the most ‘conservative’ nominee the Left has offered ever. All of this theater was promoted to the useful masses as ‘deserved’ even though Supreme Court appointments have not happened within a year of a Presidential Election in over 80-years.

While we listen to the Left howl at the injustice… think about this;

What if, after the inevitable confirmation of soon to be Justice Gorsuch, Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg buys the farm? (Literally or Figuratively… I mean, who doesn’t want a farm?)

Now suppose President Trump nominates… wait for it…

Merrick Garland?

It would be rich.

Trump would appropriately position the nomination as a compromise, even a nod… giving the Progressive Leftists want they wanted in the first place.  (If you close your eyes you can hear the choking sound…)

Now let’s go a step further and entertain another vacancy available to President Trump. Suppose another Justice retires, or buys a farm next to Ginsberg.

After such a Magnanimous gesture by President Trump to the horrid Democrat
Socialists with the nomination of ‘their guy’ Merrick Garland… he nominates another ‘strict Constitutionalist’ and demands their confirmation.

Ha!

The Art of the Deal.

A Trap for Fools, or rather The Aristocracy.

Since I’m drunk… suppose he gets another term and yet another vacancy… and does it again?

I think the Liberal Socialists would finally, collectively, Jump against Trump.

 

*’strict Constitutionalist’ is being used to identify those judges who believe the Constitution as written is the basis for our legal system.  I personally don’t understand how there can acceptably be any other kind… I’m clearly biased against pillars of judicial brilliance such as Russia, China, Venezuela, Fiji and the Philippines, etc. etc.


Over 6 Million people Gathered on the Mall…

…to Celebrate the Inauguration of Barack Obama as President.

And, the D.C. Police didn’t have to Arrest a Single Protester.

Not one.

Let’s see if the same Respect will be paid to the 45th President of the United States as was the 44th.

The American Renovation

We are at a turning point.

We are being faced with the realty of our circumstance. We have found ourselves standing at The Edge of the Abyss… and staring down.  The United States has wandered far afield from our Foundation of Individual Liberty and Freedom. We, as a people, have abdicated our power to an ever-growing bureaucracy made up of fallible human beings who view themselves as better and wiser than those they are tasked with representing. Our understanding of government has been intentionally perverted by those who wish us to see them as Philosopher Kings and demand we look to them for care without question or debate.

If this Inauguration of a New President represents a change, we must hope it is a return to the Enlightenment Philosophy so long ago abandoned. While many correctly identify the long slow path that has brought us here, too few can point in the direction we must steer this country returning it to The Greatest Experiment in Self Rule the World has ever known. However, for those who are strong enough to look, the direction is plain to see.  We don’t need New Answers, we only need recognize the Correct Answers we already possess.

We should remember that it is not a man who the Founders wished us to follow… as Freedom and Liberty are not possessions any Man can Give.  They are possessions every Man must Take and Defend.  Our Country is an Idea, it is an Ideology. It is built upon the Self Reliance, Freedom and Liberty of the Individual. It is the home of Equality of Individual Opportunity, not Individual Outcome. It is Transitory Power and the Checks and Balances designed to Limit our Government’s ability to Oppress. It is Government from the People not Upon the People. It is enumerated defense of every Citizen intentionally Limiting those lent power.  All, when practiced together, creates a Shining City on A Hill the rest of the World’s souls can long for, emulate and demand.

As we watch the Fascist Faces of “Tolerance” Burn Flags and Break Windows we must wonder when will they fire the first shot? When will their innate Socialist/Statist drive to violently oppress, control and destroy Freedom and Liberty defeat all semblance of Reason?

If the words of one Donald Trump rise above rhetoric and result in action… if those words represent an awakening in the American mind resulting in movement… History will record…
We will have found ourselves at the beginning of
The American Renovation.
