Bullet Points

* The Democrats would not be terrified of President Trump if FJB received 81 million votes from 81 million voters.

* As Upton Sinclair once said:  “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his job depends on not understanding it.”

* While mocking Biden’s speech, remember that you weren’t its target audience. Its target audience was the leftist bureaucrats of the administrative state. Its purpose is to tell them that it’s now open season to abuse their power to target conservatives. Biden’s speech (or rather, the one that his puppet masters used him to transmit) was designed to fulfill this purpose. It’s a green light for Antifa, BLM, and the like to ramp things up. And note that since it comes from the highest levels of government what matters is not just the words used (though those were clear enough) but also the implicit promise “if you do this, we won’t prosecute you.”

* Whose idea was it to have a setup that looks like Darth Vader giving a speech from Mustafar in the first place? At no point did anyone think, “You know, this demonic-looking background is probably not going to project the image we want?” Or maybe it is. I literally can’t tell anymore. Poe’s Law has become universal. (Poe’s law is an adage of Internet culture saying that, without a clear indicator of the author’s intent, every parody of extreme views can be mistaken by some readers for a sincere expression of the views being parodied.)

* You don’t have to look at the bloated federal bureaucracy for long before you come to the inevitable conclusion that the purpose of government is to hire and pay government workers. Then their function is to justify their existence by making the lives of the taxpayers as miserable as possible while promoting an “agenda” that rarely produces any public good.

 

Democracy

The US  was not established as a democracy. Benjamin Franklin was asked if this new country would be a monarchy or a democracy. He said, “a republic if they will have it”. In a constitutional republic, the Constitution exists to prevent democracy, rule by mob, and impose strict limits on what the government could do, regardless of what the people wanted or voted for.

“In a democracy (‘rule by mob’), those who refuse to learn from history are in the majority and dictate that everyone else suffer for their ignorance.”-third world county’s corollary to Santayana’s Axiom

If you establish a democracy, you must in due time reap the fruits of a democracy. You will in due season have great impatience with the public burdens, combined in due season with a great increase in the public expenditure. You will in due season have wars entered into from passion and not from reason; and you will in due season submit to peace ignominiously sought and ignominiously obtained, which will diminish your authority and perhaps endanger your independence. You will in due season find your property is less valuable, and your freedom less complete.

There is no evidence that democracy leads to more liberty and peace. As the character of the masses is increasingly reflected in democratic institutions, what you get is more violence and decadence.

Madison said, “Pure democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”

To the present gaggle of swamp dwellers, “democracy” means preserving the swamp that feeds them, or rule by the Democrat Party – the same thing.

  1. I don’t know what the purpose of Biden’s speech was on Thursday but it served to motivate me to help get the most conservative person elected for each office in my area. The walking back the next day was expected. It allows the Ds to hop in any direction, whatever best fits the narrative of the moment.

    What I found a bit surprising is that some of the liberal (well they say they are libertarian but…) websites I read to make sure I am not living in an echo chamber did not think there was anything wrong with the speech. That made me go back and listen to parts of it again. To me the meaning of the words were quite plain and quite inflammatory.

  2. ” Its target audience was the leftist bureaucrats of the administrative state.”

    Right in the X Ring.

    And behold their outward and visible sign(s).

  3. A democracy is a regime where Democrats rule.
    I prerecorded the opening segment of my radio show today and my wife previewed it.
    She said “You really sound angry.” I was. I am.
    When the president has two uniformed Marines at a political rally (UCMJ anyone?) I’d say the threat was imminent.

  4. Dude, this post is AWWWWWWWESOME!

    All kidding aside, LL just delivered one of his best; A truthful, hard-hitting, commentary on the “State of the Former USA”. Well done, BZ, and bravo, my friend!

    Almost sounds like he’s strongly encouraging the Forces of Darkness to step off the porch…My God, I’m glad we’re out of L.A.!

    They tried some of their shenanigans here a few years ago, and were put down pretty quickly. If the pResident is telling them to start again, we’re fairly safe here, for now, anyway.

    I didn’t see, and haven’t watched, his speech. I suppose I should just “For The Record”, and to see if it’s really as inflammatory as I’ve heard it was in the blogosphere. Being a minor student in the art of “The Broadcasting of Propaganda”, I’m sure I’ll find the staging and presentation at least as interesting as the text and his delivery.

    And I think the whole thing doesn’t resemble a “swamp” any longer, as much as it does an open, festering, putrid cesspool. Swamps, at least, have their place and use…

    Yes, the memes write themselves. I’d rather have mean Tweets…….

  5. Did anyone else find the Marines posted behind the p-Resident to look a little strange with their hands clasped in front? Or is the position of Parade Rest different in the Corps? In the army, the hands are clasped at the small of the back. It almost looks as if two actors were posed by somebody who had never been in the military.

    • Maybe they did it deliberately, knowing the buffons running the show wouldn’t know, notice, or care.

      Kinda like blinking our “torture” with your eyes while reading a political “confession”…..

    • Yes, it was high theater with the Marines present, choreographed and scripted for the benefit of the party faithful. I have been to the Beijing Opera and it had the surreal feel that one experiences there (also).

  6. The entire speech with the Nazi-themed background was intentional. Pick an enemy, blame them for all the countries woes, rally the thugs and anarchists to seek them out for retribution. Straight out of 1930’s Germany. Big Tech is already following the WH directions to cancel. delete and de-platform conservatives and repub pols. They’re ramping it up and dark days are ahead.

  7. Tip O’Neil said, “All politics are local”. What he didn’t say is all election fraud is local.

    Four years ago here in Colorado we had a blue tsunami. Every state elected office went to a Democrat. They dominated the House seats and have a slim majority in the Senate. Now the polls are showing the RINOs within a few percentage points in every race. The US Senate seat has a Republican who has never run for any office very close in the polls.

    While most polls will show what the people paying for the pools want, it must scare the shit out of the (P)regressives.

    My forecast, nationwide, are RINOs in panic that they might actually be in a majority and thus be accountable. Anyone remember Trump’s first two years in office? how the RINOs in Congress reacted? They have as much invested in the swamp as anyone.

    • The swamp feeds the democrats and the republicans alike. The rhetoric is slightly different but that’s to lull you into a false sense of security. Of course, there are a few real patriots in the midst of the Republican ranks but they’re scorned by leadership and are not funded to the level of the RINOs.

  8. “The Democrats would not be terrified of President Trump if FJB received 81 million votes from 81 million voters.”

    That pretty much sums it up. What exactly do they have to be concerned about if all 81million votes were legit.

    Because they know they are cheaters, and cheaters can’t keep their lies straight so get nervous when the light gets shone in their direction, they scurry to the dark corners like the cockroaches they have proven themselves to be…on both sides of the fuzzy aisle.

    Trip up North a ways into Wyoming, ZERO Cheney support signs up on the 350 mile route…BUT there were quite a few opposition billboards and signs.

    Tide appears to be changing…like turning the Queen Mary, but turning nonetheless.

      • LL could have included “Skullduggery” to his post title…just to round it out.

        It boggles the mind that the Dems have some portion of their base believing they are the innocent party while the R’s and Make America Great Again (Oh the HORROR!) semi-Fascists (must be similar to semi-Pro, same job but a much lower payscale and NO commercial or sneaker endorsements)…that WE are the ones doing what the Dems are actually doing. Dems say it every day.

        Sad to say, people are stupid, and no amount of fact or data will persuade them otherwise.

        BTW Ed, okay to angry, really decent people are angry, and rightfully so. Otherwise it continues unchecked.

        • Oh, in the event you and the ret of us semi-Fascists didn’t know, the Satanic Speech vilifying every America-lover was ACTUALLY AWESOME!…to hear it from those with their heads some place uncomfortable.

          • If you look at the German Nazi hierarchy, they were as dysfunctional as the present batch of democrats. Hitler hung wallpaper and for all I know, he may have been good at it. Himmler was a failed chicken farmer. Goering was a good pilot (Blue Max) during WW1 but lived on past glory. Being a competent stick and rudder man didn’t mean you could run the Luftwaffe. Horst Wessel was a pimp (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heQ8Pe4daow). Ernst Julius Günther Röhm was a German military officer (disgraced for thinly disguised homosexuality) and an early member of the Nazi Party. As one of the members of its predecessor, the German Workers’ Party, he was a close friend and early ally of Adolf Hitler and a co-founder of the Sturmabteilung (Brownshirts), the Nazi Party’s militia, and later was its commander. By 1934, the German Army feared the SA’s influence, and Hitler had come to see Röhm as a potential rival, so he was executed during the Night of the Long Knives.

          • Excellent historical references.

            “For those who do not know history…”

            The Dems/Marxists/Socialists/Progs (all the same) know history and are using it as a playbook, and half the country thinks it great. If you point it out they call you THE liar then shout you down.

            Nothing changes. Next it’ll be book burning…altho today that’s getting harder. BUT…statues, school names, team names…all the same thing.
