President Trump spoke at the North Carolina GOP convention dinner on June 5, 2021. His platforms do a poor job of generating transcripts, but Rev.com is on the job. Additionally, a local CBS affiliate got the raw video, in two parts. President Trump introduced and endorsed Republican members of Congress, the lieutenant governor, and a […]
The fifty United States of America are not “united” on the basis of unconditional fealty to even a wholly legitimate federal government, to say nothing of a one third illegitimate one. The Constitution and its Amendments were written and ratified to protect the states and, ultimately, we, the citizens, from governmental violation of our inalienable […]
Holocaust remembrance has given Jews Stockholm Syndrome, so faithful the allegiance to their Leftist destroyers. America shall not so capitulate in captivity of Dementia and his envy eaten flock of rabid sheep. Preview Open
No matter how loud the chorus of deceit, nor cavernous the echo chamber of lies, nor thunderous the stampede of conformity, there is no sound loud enough, nor conspiracy of fools vast enough, to negate reality or silence the truth, so long as their remains even a single, solitary voice that dare speak it.

Trump supporters who contest the 2020 election lose their 5th, 4th, and 1st Amendment rights, Constitutional liberty interests, and writ of habeus corpus in Washington DC Courts, where the guy with the viking horns is being held without bail because he might “push false claim of election fraud” if released.

Arizona is a swing state that has swung hard left in key offices and will likely go entirely woke if Arizonans do not fully mobilize the working class against the real upper class. We must do so in every state for the sake of ourselves, the rising generations, and our constitutional republic. We are late in the game, as the Arizona Department of Education has already shown.
Before you reflexively roll out the usual line about “conservative” and how “class” is a leftist concept, read this excerpt from “A Modest Proposal for Republicans,” then go read the whole article after this post.
Yeah, yeah, “class” sounds Marxist, class warfare and all that, you’re supposed to be against that kind of thing, right? Wrong. Economic class warfare is Marxist, but here in the US class isn’t a purely economic concept. Class is also about culture. You’re already doing class warfare, you’re just doing it blindly and confusedly. Instead, do it openly, while using the words “class” and “classism”.
We have a problem with our federal government, but it’s not exactly the one we’re used to thinking about. Frankly, we don’t want to think about it all – better to deny the reality entirely. Easier to lie and lie and lie, and blame our problems on everyone else. Easier to blame Liberals, or Wokesters, or (the current favorite among the increasingly reality-averse folks who still cannot face that Trump has immolated himself once and for all time) traitors and sabotage. It is, of course, all lies. Mind you, lies can be useful – especially when trying to avoiding hurt feelings (our own not the least), but they’re still lies. At one time rebellions against ruling monarchs favored the lie “We’re not really rebelling against the King, he’s just the victim of bad advisors.”
The lie we all tell ourselves today is that we are the helpless victims of “The DC Establishment” (or whatever other term you want to use). Synonyms for this include “Wall Street,” “Big Tech,” and a host of others. They are the “bad advisors” we blame for manipulating Congress, for stealing elections, or for disloyalty to Trump (fact check here: the only consistent disloyalty in the Trump administration came from Trump – watching his cabinet members go from vaunted heroes to filthy traitors and sellouts in the commentariat was much akin to studying Soviet photography for disappearing faces alongside Stalin). We are very good at lying to ourselves about why Trump lost this or that political battle, about why Congress is a dysfunctional mess, and about why the “authoritarian ratchet” is inexorable. The truth we cannot confront about it is all is simple, and we all bear the shame of it. We do not really want any of our congress critters, our president, or our courts to lead us out of our morass, we want them to follow us into the pit of our own making. And follow they blithely do.
To my utter lack of surprise, Team Trump has revealed it’s cunning plan; yet another lawsuit, just as hopeless as the 57 that came before it. There is simply no path to victory through the courts without incontrovertible direct evidence of fraud. Preview Open
We all know when a team has given up. Morale, communication, and coordination plummet. Easy shots are suddenly impossible. Obvious wide open opportunities to score or advance the ball are suddenly invisible. And not least, creativity takes a nosedive and the team’s efforts devolve into half-hearted repeats of the same tired set of plays – […]
If anyone missed these stories, chalk it up to suppression by the news media. No matter what happens on January 20th, read the report for yourself and draw your own conclusions. My conclusion is this ship has sailed. The Great Reset is and has been underway. The EU, the WEF and other global entities will […]
I’ve been harping on and on and on about Trump needing forensic evidence that can stand up in court, because no Judge is going to throw out the voting results of an entire county, much less a state, based on indicators of fraud instead of actual evidence of fraud. Well … please watch this; Preview […]
My favorite Supreme Court Justice of all time is Clarence Thomas, for his courage in sticking to his principles, despite knowing they are unpopular with the tastemakers of the day, no matter the consequences. This courage was a deliberate decision by Thomas. In February 2001, he gave a speech at the American Enterprise Institute outlining […]
Was there “chicanery” November 3rd? I don’t know. But I do know this:
It is an unwritten law of nature that nothing happens for the first time. We’ve all been there. When a teenager gets busted for booze or pot, chances are it’s not the first time. When a cop pulls your kid over for speeding, same thing. Should you catch your spouse in flagrent dilecto no matter how much he denies it or how much you want to believe him, deep down you know the truth. If you find your wife day drinking during the pandemic, and she swears that she hasn’t done it before, it’s probably not the first time.
The Texas lawsuit and the 17 states that have filed amicus briefs in support have been one of the few bright spots in the last one month on the legal battlefield. What concerns me as a gaping weakness is that while Texas is rightly pointing out that every extra-legislative change in the four states made […]
Two disclaimers; first of all, I am not a lawyer. Second is that I have learned to never assume that any politician is some super-genius executing a plan above my capacity to discern or comprehend. I watched too many people fool themselves with the idea that George W. Bush’s politically disastrous silences were part of […]
For some reason, I keep imagining Trump announcing to the world, with unassailable forensic evidence, that his team has discovered hundreds of thousands of fake ballots were manufactured for Biden in PA, GA, MI, WI, AZ and NV – just before Congress is to meet to accept the results on January 6th. For icing on […]
Let’s consider a scenario. A major corporation goes bankrupt rapidly, and lots of people lose jobs or money in stocks. Even other companies are left holding the bag from purchase orders. It turns out that a major executive was actively embezzling from the company and defrauding the investors while lying to the SEC. However, the […]
In addition to poll observers, why don’t we have video cameras at ballot counting centers? If cameras malfunction, counting must stop or votes are invalidated? Preview Open
Maybe Giuliani, Murtaugh, Stepien, etc. have some different, better course of action planned that I cannot begin to guess at, but otherwise what’s happening (or not happening) isn’t making any sense.
Let’s be honest; everyone knew from the onset that no judge is going to set aside the results, or delay the certification of the election, and no state legislature is going to send a different slate of electors without incontrovertible evidence of election fraud in sufficient volume to change the outcome.
