UPDATE 12/25/22: The war on America takes in all things worthwhile, and that includes Christmas, this most anticipated, happiest, magical day of the year. If nothing else, we conservatives are realists and well-versed in finding and CONSERVING the best of an imperfect life despite the Woke grinches at work 24/7/365. So may we be cheerful and draw inspiration on this and all days despite…things. “It’s always something,” as the great Gilda sighed, and we’ll just handle it. Merry Christmas!
UPDATE 12/24/22: How different our lives would be but for the astonishing heroism of Washington and his men crossing the Delaware on Christmas Eve, 1776 and turning the tide of the war toward American victory. As great a gift as was ever bestowed on humanity.
12/21/22: There’s a price for everything of value, and nowadays the price for speaking up and out loudly for America and its freedom-based values is costing even brave billionaires dearly. The first obvious hero is Donald Trump, and now Elon Musk is drawing the same threats to his very being. After releasing the Twitter Files dynamite, he has drawn criticism for taking down posts of malicious doxxers including one that tracks his exact location, an open invitation to any potential assassin. Seemingly in response, Musk proposed a poll to Twitter users to determine whether he should step down as the company’s CEO and vowed to go with the poll results. It makes no sense for the man who forked over $44 billion for a company to ask the public permission to run the thing. The only explanation is that he is seeking an excuse to lay low, and now it looks as if the majority vote against him is providing that excuse. One only hopes he remains the man behind the curtain to keep the revelations coming and the channels of communication open and free. He has every reason to fear for himself and his family, and we pray he uses every resource to protect himself while continuing to blast open the corruption that genuinely threatens America as we’ve always known her. He, like Trump, is one of those rare characters that this historical moment demands if we are to survive as a nation.
UPDATE 12/19/22: Santa has a list, so why not the American public? Here’s a list that should be the talking points of every candidate for high public office. Not by chance, it is also a list for anyone who wants the best life for themselves in America.
Among many conservatives lost in 2022, we will particularly miss P.J. O’Rourke and Lucianne Goldberg for the gold of humor and fun they brought to the big debate.
UPDATE 12/21/22: Donald Trump and MAGA came along at a troubled stretch on the American timeline that really began on November 22, 1963. Things were never the same after that indelible shock to the system, that psychological earthquake that marred everything idyllic, invincibly optimistic about post-WWII America. If we’ve learned anything, it is that things both good and bad are transitory, but the basis of the country, our God-given fundamental rights, must stand firm and out of reach from human mischief. Otherwise, all is truly lost.
UPDATE 12/23/22: The great debate over De Santis offers up a totally positive turn as he greenlights a full investigation into the politicized Covid vaccinations and the immense, still undocumented damage done.
UPDATE 12/20/22: Back and forth we go about De Santis. Is he a true populist or the owned tool of RINO globalists? Recent reports claim he also has a Democrat following as Reagan did, so he’s potentially very electable. The question remains: what are we getting if we do elect him?
UPDATE 12/19/22: The elephant/gorilla in the room remains “Who owns De Santis?” Are we getting more of the game-changing MAGA conservatism or more of the Old Boy RINO/Big Bucks network that Trump exposed with his iconoclastic Presidency?
UPDATE 12/23/22: Despite guaranteed misery and death, Leftism/Marxism persists thanks to that element of ignorance and self-destruction that plagues flawed humanity. Everything is promised to the gullible, particularly the impressionable young, and they are fatally inclined to believe they can Have It All for “free.” The great, cruel irony is that the cost is beyond anyone’s means, and the greatest civilizations crumble.
UPDATE 12/21/22: Handy to have a place to post not just absurdity but the tragically unthinkable. Society is on the verge of machines taking over the creative process, doing away with the necessity for the individual to develop talent. If a machine can write a better essay (as one CA teacher describes) or produce a recorded voice to rival Pavarotti or Callas or Sinatra, why bother to do it yourself? Is this not the onset of human obsolescence?
UPDATE 12/22/22: Perhaps we’re on the way back to legitimate elections since a Delaware court ruled same day and mail-in voting unconstitutional. If this goes national, fixing elections the next day with truckloads of magically new ballots all conveniently marked for your candidate is going to be a bit harder.
MEMORIAL DAY AND D-DAY
UPDATE 12/19/22: It’s common knowledge that Harvard along with most of our most prestigious universities have gone completely Woke. That is born out in full judging by its choice of a new President who checks all the ID Political boxes and has shown all the necessary attributes of a ruthless bureaucratic tyrant.
UPDATE 12/23/22: The NJ gym owner threatened with jail and 6-7 figure fines for keeping his place of business open provides more damning testimony against the Covid lockdown outrage. The damage done physically and psychologically to millions deprived of beaches, walks in the park, exercise, fresh air needs to reach the courts and reparations made. A heavy price must be paid if for no other reason than as a reminder of the cost of such arbitrary government overreach into the free lives of American citizens.
UPDATE 12/24/22: Legitimate research is now pointing to the vaccines and the subsequent boosters actually weakening natural immunity and making Covid infection more likely.
MEDICAL HELP FROM
UPDATE 12/23/22: Dr. Simone Gold is one of those contemporary heroes putting their lives and reputations on the line to lead us out of the swamp, in her case, the current morass that falsely calls itself “science.”
UPDATE 12/23/22: Does the average person know the fatal consequences of relaxed drug laws in states like Colorado and Oregon, normalizing such brain-friers as marijuana?
UPDATE 2/24/22: Absurdity used to be the stuff of comedy. Now it’s reality.
UPDATE 12/23/22: Would you be ok if someone offered to sterilize, castrate or mutilate your kid? Whatever is left of the sane public must be educated on the perils of normalized “Gender-affirming” care.
UPDATE 12/22/22: Since the moment all those blue & yellow ribbons started appearing on all those lapels and Zelensky became the darling of the Progressive/Liberal set, the simple, emotional brute vs. underdog narrative of the Ukraine got murky. The suffering of the Ukrainian people is undeniable, but is their leader really begging for all that money on their behalf or just another political grifter exploiting the situation with big-hearted America as Chump #1?
A simple, accurate answer to the question, “Where is that money going?” would provide all the answers necessary. If Putin were to suddenly disappear back into Russia, the lives of Ukrainians would not be measurably better. Although he stands before Congress in his trademark man-of-the-people duds, comparing himself to George Washington fighting another American Revolution on the Black Sea, Zelensky already has a record of ruthless crackdowns on his people reminiscent of a scruffy bearded Cuban in military fatigues who likewise visited and charmed America 60 years ago while pulling a major fast one on the world. Those virtue-signaling useful idiots in the West sympathetically sporting the Ukrainian colors would find their compassion sorely tested if they were Odessa dissenters grabbed off the street Adolf/Fidel style and…disappeared.
Much to the disappointment of those not seeking romance but facts, Putin’s invasion has been a nightmare for the Ukrainian people AND a golden propaganda opportunity for the public image (and self-enrichment) of unabashedly corrupt Ukrainian leadership.
Regarding Zelensky’s personal wealth: Forbes reassures his admirers he is NOT a billionaire as claimed but worth a mere $20 million. Only a few years ago, he was worth a paltry fraction of that. Whether or not his wife recently went on a 40,000 Euro shopping spree in Paris remains a somewhat unresolved mystery of internet gossip. The real point of inquiry ignored by those prone to lionize politically correct scoundrels is how do “regular Joes” like a Biden or Zelensky become so unbelievably rich so fast once they get into politics?
UPDATE 12/23/22: “[He] who controls the language controls the masses.” Saul Alinsky. The latest such takeover of our lives through Orwellian Newspeak is Stanford University’s list of words now deemed unacceptable, starting with “American.”
UPDATE 12/21/22: What Andrew Breitbart said about politics being downstream from culture: we are living a suicidal, trashy politics downstream from a marketplace of things and people that don’t care about excellence or durability. Our landfills are full of things that have worn out after a handful of uses, and our lives, reflective of and dependent upon things that work, are heading for the same garbage dumps.
UPDATE 12/20/22: The multiple war fronts that the Leftist hydra has created is more than a bit overwhelming. Islam, China, Pandemics & Corrupted Science/Medicine, Woke Racism, gender spectrums, incorrect pronouns, a corrupted FBI are just a few monsters we’re expected to handle. The big question always arises which of those heads is the immortal head that, once destroyed, kills the rest of those heads? Since this is reality and not Greek mythology, the answer is “whichever one is coming at you.”
UPDATE 12/20/22: Hard to know what’s real and what’s not? What to believe? We’re each of us on our own to decide. This video is a compelling two hours.
UPDATE 12/19/22: The proliferating polar bear population has to come as a disappointment to those using those big, cute, fluffy things as the tragic image of climate “emergency.” Admittedly, they’re much more appealing than a scowling Greta. But, sorry to tell the Greenies, it’s all just the weather anyhow, and the polar bears are thriving.
UPDATE 12/20/22: Billionaires like [former billionaire] Sam Bankman-Fried have caught on and are now routinely using the language of Woke as cover for their misuse of power. It is nothing new since uber-capitalist predators like Armand Hammer portrayed their clandestine business alliances with Lenin and his bloody communist successors as “humanitarian missions” over a century ago.
UPDATE 12/19/22: The story of Marcus Garvey is yet another bit of admirable pre-Great Society Black history that promoted self-sufficiency, dignity and pride.
UPDATE 12/18/22: The negative consequences of multiculturalism (Islamic in particular) in Europe (or anywhere in the West) are painfully apparent to everyone except the Rainbow Luvvies. Do those praising open borders live in Leicester (UK), Malmo (Sweden), Cologne (Germany), Molenbeek (Belgium), No-Go zones everywhere the Islamic population moves past 10%?
UPDATE 12/23/22: It turns out America’s worst, most irresponsible President DID consider the border invasion more than a minor little problem among greater problems as he recently claimed. The king actually cursed his lowly courtiers for not instantly solving the problem for him, knowing how badly this might reflect on him. The damage done to the humans involved and the impact the invasion has on communities across the nation to date has yet to gain entry into that pea brain.
UPDATE 12/23/22: Contrary to what Kiwi Covid tyrant Jacinda Jardern insisted about her government being the single source of truth, one can put money on the likelihood that everything coming from the present American administration is a lie.
UPDATE 12/18/22: It seems objective reality is making a roaring comeback with boundless thanks to Elon Musk and his jaw-dropping dedication to making his immense personal power a weapon for truth, justice and the American way. The FBI/CIA connection is just one long-darkened spot now coming into the light providing startling revelations and evidence going back even to the Kennedy assassination. We now even know that LBJ was actually a member of the KKK which has certainly never been common knowledge. This is hardly a surprise to those of us never terribly enamored of that bigger-than-bigtime political opportunist from Texas who gave us The Great Society and is credited with exulting to his dubious Southern supporters, “We’ll have those niggers voting for us for the next 200 years.”
We pray this truth-telling of a freed Twitter birdie becomes a like a Hitchcock nightmare pecking away at those manipulating us from the shadows. Only such a conflagration of facts and objective scholarship can set America firmly back on the course from which it has dangerously deviated for most of our lifetimes.
Who’s spying ON whom? Who’s working WITH whom? Who’s working FOR whom?
UPDATE 12/23/22: This ugly character has clearly served his useful purpose and can’t possibly last past 2024. We look forward to the time when we can all laugh and say, “Remember when Joe claimed to do this? Remember when Joe pretended to be that?” If lies were fleas, Joe would be covered with them…a flea-covered liar, a rather apt summation of this unsavory accident of history.
UPDATE 12/23/22: Perhaps the earliest bit of “science fiction” in Fauci’s history has been denial of any part in funding the “gain-of-function” research at Wuhan. Not incidentally and looking back with 20-20 hindsight, real scientists are reminding us that this Frankensteinian tampering with nature is never advisable.
UPDATE 12/19/22: Filmmaker Joel Gilbert is convinced Michelle-Antoinette has her eye on the Top Spot and has studiously hidden that behind “Oh, I hate politics.” Are we to be cursed with these people again once Biden is shuffled off to the glue factory?
Oh no! America’s Forever First Lady! Please don’t go! [Please do, and make it for keeps.]
UPDATE 12/23/22: It’s both unsettling and unpleasantly illuminating to know that RINOS such as those running The Dispatch have been taking big bucks to make Conservatism a conservative-free zone. Now we know how they survive so handily despite having turned on the GOP MAGA base.
