Personally, I think we under-appreciate the tendings of history per se, and that tending these days is the set of circumstances adding up to a Long Emergency, a.k.a. the Fourth Turning, a.k.a, Mr. J.M. Greer’s Long Descent. In plain English, we’re exiting the techno-industrial fiesta of the past 200-odd years and entering the uncharted territory of what-comes-next, and that is driving the immense anxiety of the age. Our business model for everything is broken, mostly because the fossil fuel situation has become so uncertain, and it is driving us nuts.
If given a clear choice, the people will pick the pro-freedom right. Anti-liberty leftists are lying to fool people into taking something they would reject if they knew its true nature. They are not only perpetrating these horrendous policies, but outright lying so people support them without knowing what they are. If that isn’t evil, then what is?
For the sake of argument, let’s say they might have had some theoretical point in playing games with the facts about COVID, we cannot fathom what that was, but that was their ‘emergency justification’ at the moment. But what is their rationale for doing this now? No one is going to make an incorrect medical decision based on this definition, so why are they doing this?
But decisions in lower courts are critical as well, and decisions there often set the tone and lay the parameters for extended, more long-term battles. Such is the case with a recent ruling by a federal judge in Tennessee regarding the transgender debate and the efforts of the Biden Administration’s Education Department which is trying to force its far-left transgender ideology upon state and local governments.
Of course, all these actions have the benefit of irritating the Right. They provide distractions that keep Conservatives too busy to address the underlying activities that give the Left the power to engage in such provocations. An old saying about alligators and swamps comes to mind. The unfortunate thing is that since the need for attention originates within the psyche of the Left, no amount of outside attention can ever fill the hole that resides within.
15. Why is it a riot to “march peacefully and patriotically” to protest congress’ refusal to examine voter fraud, but it’s not a riot or insurrection to burn and loot major cities and take over 6 blocks of downtown Seattle? 16. Why are we discovering that the ideas and opinions you have censored most (Voter fraud, Origins of the virus, Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, danger of vaccines, and efficacy of masks… etc.) are the ones that have turned out to be most true?
We demand that those who are committing crimes, regardless of their skin color, stop murdering their fellow citizens, stop making our streets unsafe, and stop being a burden on our taxpayers by jamming up our prisons and court systems. We also demand that idiots like yourself stop making excuses for those criminals and stop playing identity politics. Your scheme to exploit minorities in this country to achieve your own socialist agenda has been exposed.
In one of the greatest political bait-and-switches since they successfully projected their ugly, racist past onto Republicans, they have used the language of Liberty to describe the termination of a pregnancy: “It’s a personal, private decision between a ‘birthing person’ and its doctor,” It’s none of the government’s business,” and the ever-popular, “my body, my choice.”
73% of Trump Voters Believe Democrats Are Trying To Replace White Americans – Have We Reached Irreversible Polarization?
A French writer and activist, Renaud Camus, initially coined the term “The Great Replacement” after releasing a self-published book in 2011 with the same title in French. It suggests that people of primarily European descent are deliberately being replaced with immigrants who are non-white, mainly affecting Western European countries, America and Canada.
We can at least take comfort knowing that sanity prevailed, for now. Five out of seven of the judges, which is 71%, recognized the absurdity of the NRP’s argument, and let’s forget about the other 29% who have apparently lost their minds. Also, let’s appreciate the fact that this happened in the State of New York, one of the most leftwing states in the country.
What if someone had called in to suggest the execution of Barack Obama? Would our friends on the left merely shake their heads as they’re doing today regarding this incident, and chalk up the episode to some not-so-intelligent outlier? Or would they be running around their newsrooms with their hair on fire, calling everyone who doesn’t vote for Democrats a racist, and lamenting the relentless ‘threats to our Democracy?’
If the kids stay in their local school, team up with a group of like-minded parents and attend school board meetings. Stay fully engaged, alert, and, where necessary, deliver an unapologetic criticism of lessons. Take a hard stance against the slightest inclination, like a sexually graphic elementary book that aims to coax students into accepting moral degradation.
One habit common to most of us and especially of parents dealing with children is to try to present the conclusions without elaborating the underlying processes we went through to arrive at the final result. The usual result is that we get ignored or dismissed. Many have described the process as being like teaching a pig to sing. The attempt is nearly always unsuccessful, and it annoys the pig.
It’s worth noting that not only did the Republican’s financial victory haul happen with the media’s thumb placed firmly on the political scale in favor of Democrats, it also happened despite Democrats’ having the bully pulpit. President Biden can own the news cycle if he chooses to and possesses the biggest and loudest megaphone in the world. But for last month, much of that rhetoric fell on deaf ears.
Elon Musk came around because the Democrat party thought it would be a good idea to continuously piss off the richest man in the world, (and Trump). But the Democrat party can dump on Bill Maher all they want to. They can attack kindergartners for being slave owners, they can force transgenderism on kids and make parents the villain. They can ignore thousands crossing the border illegally every day. They can raise taxes, they can crash the economy. But you know what? Like a beat-up wife that won’t press charges, Bill Maher won’t step up until the Democrats have beaten him to death.
But Musk is a pragmatist – a brilliant pragmatist – and he understands the need for freedom of speech if a nation is going to thrive. It is that stance, along with his ongoing attempt to take over Twitter and undo their far-left censorship, that has put Musk squarely in the crosshairs of the Democrats and their media. That conflict has now reached a new level with this fascinating recent admission from Musk.
There is an interesting historical parallel between Rome and the current USA. When the Arch of the Emperor Septimius Severus was being built in the second century, there was no craftsman who could sculpt the statues and figures available. They had to walk down the street to the Arch of Titus and take some to fill the void.
Spray painting churches will not change hearts and minds. These “activists” are the same idiots who burned down former great cities like Portland and Minneapolis while tearing down statues all over the nation. They are mindless unemployed morons and we can only pray they do not reproduce.
Children are clearly at a disadvantage when left to make life-changing decisions on their own. According to multiple studies, the human brain is still developing until at least age 30. It is for this reason that laws prohibiting the consumption of alcohol and cannabis prior to age 18 makes so much sense. It’s why the age of sexual consent being 16 is not only prudent, it may be too young.
Once more, the addled left is going off half-cocked without so much as reading, to say nothing of trying to understand, the argument being made by Justice Alito, which by any standard is most eloquently and elegantly framed. Once again, these coddled semi-hysterical Chicken Littles are having screaming meemies over every tiny imagined threat to their cherished, coddled world.
The idea that reversing Roe would end “access to abortion” in the U.S. was a common refrain among the hyperbolic left. As many on the right side of this issue have long pointed out, this is nowhere close to the truth. Even if Roe is finally overturned—because such a decision would merely return the matter to individual states—tragically, throughout much of America, abortion would remain as legal as it is today.
There’s plenty about Thunberg to be annoyed by. Her lecturing tone as epitomized in her “How dare you!” rant is certainly aggravating, and so is her hyperbolic rhetoric which is often blatantly false. But what’s truly bothersome about her is this: Who the hell is Greta Thunberg, and what qualifies her to be the Pope of Climate Change?
As you can see, I have invested more into this effort than I would have ever thought I would or should have; but here we are. I have read the actual Florida bill, researched Supreme and State court cases, have watched the work that Matt Walsh has done on the subject – including the viral debate conducted on the Dr. Phil show – just so that I can have some talking points and attempt to understand the varied points of view.
Lunacy is not just a political disease. USA Today has declared a man in drag to be their Woman of the Year. Not to be outdone, Sports Illustrated did a feature on Lia Thomas. That would be the “woman” with a penis who just won the NCAA women’s swimming championship. Fortunately, Sports Illustrated didn’t feature Lia in its swimsuit edition – some things can’t be unseen.
Slavery was a despicable institution and is the ‘original sin’ of the United States. It was awful, and so was Jim Crow. But slavery ended 157 years ago, and Jim Crow ended 58 years ago with the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This reparations scheme isn’t about making up for the sin of slavery, it’s about implementing a far-left agenda. It’s only the “first step” in moving us towards full-blown socialism.
