“I suppose, indeed, that in public life, a man whose political principles have any decided character and who has energy enough to give them effect must always expect to encounter political hostility from those of adverse principles.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)
UPDATE 11/13/23: A much-needed jolt of adrenalin came our way directly from midtown Manhattan when Trump made an unannounced surprise appearance at a Madison Square Garden rally this week featuring Tucker Carlson and Kid Rock. The Big Apple is hardly MAGA country, and there is hope when DEEP Blue NYC and those in its orbit seem to be newly awakened to what’s at stake in our elections.
UPDATE 11/15/23: The Ukraine mess and 10/7 are but two of a multitude of disasters that most likely would have never occurred had real votes been counted in November, 2020. Thus, we live in hope for next November.
UPDATE 11/15/23: In the absence of a shared culture that provides beauty, meaning and moral clarity, we are cursed with the Woke, the disconnected and permanently disgruntled. That includes those successful, “educated” members of society who have proven themselves highly selective about such absolutes as good and evil. The Germans of Hitler’s time were steeped in all the highest elements of Western culture, yet they too could be easily swayed as a one mindless mass to support the atrocities that, to history’s everlasting shame, their society would commit. As the jaded among us frequently grouse, “People are no damn good.” Perhaps there’s something to those old notions of The Fall and Original Sin. Quoting Voltaire yet again: “Anyone who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.”
UPDATE 11/14/23: The line between reality and satire has disappeared: London has this week been the setting for a Nazi rally almost rivaling Hitler’s Nuremberg love-in 80 years ago (albeit minus the neat, clean German precision). Coincidentally, the Babylon Bee unintentionally finds itself guilty of now being a legitimate news source, not just a funny site spoofing current events.
UPDATE 11/12/23: Now that the Woke Left has decreed all Whites (including those pesky Jews) are worthy candidates for the gas chambers (or at the very least medieval slaughter by Hamas), those Pro-Palestinian truth-tellers will surely have no problem being viewed as the New Nazis. Fair enough?
And where does that leave those faithful, lockstep Democrats quick to call out “White Supremacy” in a trice while at the same time feeling somewhat/kinda/sorta inclined to take the Jews’ side in the aftermath of 10/7? One could lose one’s mind trying to sort out which totalitarian faction ticks all the right boxes for you.
MEMORIAL DAY AND D-DAY
UPDATE 11/14/23: Newsom’s attempt to impress Comrade Xi with a suddenly spruced-up Frisco is actually an amateurish attempt to imitate China’s and North Korea’s own vast network of Potemkin Villages, hiding from view sundry forms of tyranny visited upon their own people.
The California Cover Boy’s noticeable lack of concern for residents of the city when not sucking up to Communist dictators is telling.
UPDATE 11/15/23: All those in the West praising/marching/supporting/worshipping the Palestine/Hamas Satan have given wide new exposure to the phenomenon of Useful Idiots. They are useful running PR cover for murderers and idiots for thinking they wouldn’t be the first to have their own heads chopped off.
UPDATE 11/15/23: For some, there are no worries that the ChiComs actually own and control a significant number of American schools.
MEDICAL HELP FROM
11/14/23: Good is evil, evil is good. Just change definitions and standards, and one is free to bend reality to any design one fancies. The decreed design of Obama and his rabid acolytes like Omar and Tlaib is obliteration of pluralistic Judeo-Christian civilization and replacing it with jihad, the eradication of all non-Muslim “infidels.”
UPDATE 11/15/23: Lest he be overlooked as one more funny-looking screwball megalomaniac, Klaus Schwab is, like Soros, one of those central casting villains who lives for the thrill of controlling the masses like inanimate pieces on his own little chessboard.
UPDATE 11/14/23: The ever-rational response to Climate hysterics should continue to be “Yeah, yeah, whatever,” and yet one more recounting of all the Doomsday predictions that have come to nothing after 50 years of this Henny Penny nonsense.
UPDATE 11/17/23: Living the self-imposed nightmare of Islamic invasion, much of Europe is waking up to the folly of its own lenient border policies and putting an end to those days when going to country to country on the continent was no different than traveling between the various United States. Orban’s Hungary has been well ahead of the curve on this inconvenient but commonsensical policy.
UPDATE 11/17/23: Are we finally coming to that inevitable point when the spurious Two State Solution is finally abandoned? The Gazans have screamed out loud like their “Palestinian” comrades that they are not interested in, let alone capable, of responsibly running their own state in any effective, moral fashion. Handed Gaza alive and humming with Israeli infrastructure, the sole social goal remains war on their benefactors. If any glimmer of hope exists, it is that the other Islamic states have not rushed to Hamas’ side post 10/7 to keep the momentum going. Perhaps their little foray into 6th century barbarity was just a little over the top, even for their fellow Muslims?
UPDATE 11/15/23: That most all the pro-Hamas elements (including the MSM) is up in arms about Israel’s raid on the Gaza hospital indicates the IDF is onto at least one of the epicenters of Hamas terror. To which we sing, “Onward, Jewish Soldiers!”
UPDATE 11/12/23: Look if you dare. Know what barbaric evil Israel and the whole civilized world is up against which includes those masses of mindless apologists in the West, shouting in unison, “River to the sea, Palestine will be free!”
To Israel, we shout Go! Go! Go! And to those thousands of miles away counseling them to slow down, pause, be kind, we say GO TO HELL! And when it’s over, Israel has to realize more than ever that it does NOT need a corrupted American politburo to lecture them on the wisdom of the preposterous “Two State Solution.”
UPDATE 11/16/23: A fine mess, Ollie. Somewhat awakened Liberal/Leftist Jews find themselves caught in a real quandary being slavishly devoted to an ideology and Party equally devoted to making life intolerable for Jews. Go figure.
UPDATE 11/14/23: The Biden administration and those who continue to insist it provides the proper approach to keep America and Israel safe are living under the dangerous delusion that there IS some substitute for victory in this war. For the entire post WWII era, the modern Democrat way of waging half-assed war against a foe that exists entirely to destroy free, peaceable life has yielded only wasted American lives and emboldening of whatever omnipresent evil force exists in the vacuum left by American inaction and indifference. During the 1930s and 40s, ordinary citizens of the Free World were fully aware of the life-and-death threat posed by the Germans and Japanese. Since that decisive, two-front victory, the descendants of those same, sensible ordinary folk have come to believe that the bad guys just went away forever with V-E/V-J Day, determined to ignore the very real combined threat of present-day Communism and Islam. Despite those tens of millions murdered and billions enslaved and even 9/11 over the last century, we are supposed to believe that our greatest concerns now should be “climate change” or “personal pronouns.”
A terrible reckoning is nigh for those stuck on this unsurpassed stupidity, not to mention the rest of sane, sensible society helplessly watching the world going to hell.
The Watermelon has already been the perfect visual description for Green tyranny and now has become as “a symbol of Palestinian resistance.” Why not? The shared hatred of pluralistic, free societies and overall goals of global control are identical. Green outside/Red inside. Perfect.
UPDATE 11/18/23: Worse than Limo Libs are LimoCommies, gazillionaires who bankroll Marxist, anti-capitalist schemes and regimes around the world. Currently among China’s most active poison-spreaders are a rich American couple named Jodie Evans (do check out her LONG radical resume) and Neville Roy Singham who have added “River To The Sea” violence to their already active Code Pink and BLM subversion. Like all capitalist commies, there has to be some element of terror deep down driving such odious creatures hoping to buy their way out of a trip to the guillotine while being allowed to enjoy all the perks of being rich. They’re welcome to do what they like with their money, but sooner or later such treacherous scum should run up against the laws involving treason and war crimes.
Peace through violence! The secret gesture signaling the rabble that, even though they’re millionaires, they’re on the right (aka LEFT) side of history too!
UPDATE 11/14/23: This bad real life version of “The Manchurian Candidate” starring the so-called “post-racial” POTUS is supposed to end with a satisfying destruction of the evil characters. Going far beyond impersonating Angela Lansbury, Obama shows no sign of vacating the premises and abandoning “Transformation.”
