The Progressive Cult
The Old Democrat Party, which I was never part of but which I understood and in part agreed with (back in the 60’s and 70’s) is gone. A lot of those Old Democrat Party types defected to vote for Donald Trump. More will defect in the 2020 cycle because of the insanity of the National Socialist Worker’s Party, which evolved from the carcass of the Democrat Party. The progressive movement needs new acolytes to vote for the National Socialists. Immigration is not the only way that you can stuff the ballot box, but it’s part of a larger strategy to hold power. Offering them free healthcare, free welfare and other incentives at the expense of the voters is just a way of using our money to buy votes.
Those are East Coast numbers. On the West Coast it’s more like 300 officers in a community of 300,000, and at any one time 1/4 or so are on duty. I was a police officer at the Anaheim, CA Police Department for a few years during my life, and it was a great experience, great men and women to work with. We would go out with 14 officers and 3 sergeants to cover that city of about 300,000 people (plus the Disneyland, Anaheim Convention Center and Anaheim Stadium transient tourist population staying in hotels) covering over forty square miles.
You, the citizen are the first line of defense, of both you and your family. The current population of whiners doesn’t seem to grasp that. The police will protect you to the extent that they are able. In the case of Anaheim PD (above) on any given night some of those 14 officers were at the hospital, some were booking people in jail and some were busy on calls. There were many times when one, two or none were available to assist YOU, the citizen, when you were screaming into the phone for help. As you suggest, it is a matter of numbers.
Where I live now, there is one resident deputy who can respond if he’s on duty (works 4 days a week) and if he’s local. His headquarters is in Flagstaff, about a 1.25 hour Code 3 run away, from when he starts. If he’s not available, the typical response time is 2 hours. Coconino County (AZ) Search and Rescue has a 2.5-3 hour response time for rescue situations. So we who live (or who vacation) in the mountains are on our own. Whatever went wrong will be long over by the time government arrives. I’m fine with that, primarily because I’ve always known that ‘it’s on me’ to cover my ass. It was the same in my military life. We were out there, silent and on our own. If we were jumped by a local military unit (that could reinforce), we’d run out of ammo before we could extract, or we’d be overwhelmed by numbers. It’s no different in a city, no different here in the remote Arizona mountains or in some s-hole country. YOU are your first line of defense for yourself and for those you love.
Was it much different in 1909 when Kipling wrote The City of Brass?
It’s a multi-polar movement, and as with the Hydra, it has many heads. Many agendas. George Soros throws his money around and has been effective in organizing to generate the chaos. But it isn’t just one billionaire. It isn’t only a group of European Illuminati. The power elite agree the the goal is power and that the United States is the only bulwark that stands against a one-world government. Bringing that dream about is the common goal of globalists, who may not agree on all of the details, but they agree on what they feel needs to happen.
Then insurrections of the sort we see in Hong Kong break out. It reminds the globalists of the problem of breaking the human spirit, and crushing the dreams of freedom. So long as the US survives in its current form, it’s problematic. The election of Donald Trump set them back decades. Everyone was so sure that Hillary would carry it home for them, and then free women and men rejected that. Do you really think that the US Marine Corps would go door to door shooting American men and women, to seize firearms in violation of the Bill of Rights? No, they can’t go about it like that. The Police themselves reject that. They have a difficult job, but the movement is well funded and it is relentless.
The War of the Sons of Light against the Sons of Darkness is nothing new. The link (left) takes you to the Wikipedia link and the War Scroll – found among the Dead Sea Scrolls in Qumran. The Shrine of the Book is a wing of the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, that was constructed to symbolize the War Scroll. The shrine is built as a white dome, symbolizing the Sons of Light. A black basalt wall symbolizes the Sons of Darkness.
When you see people exercising compulsion, creating pain, misery and privation, and advocating for the slaughter of the unborn and the newly born – and reveling in that blood, you know which side that they’re on.
The war for the souls of man is literally as old as time.
It’s a noble thought – but maybe to gators. I wouldn’t want to see them make a wolf or a mountain lion, or a shark sick. Who cares if an alligator or even an anaconda gets indigestion?
WSF and LindaG want to create a pockmarked wall for the plotters of the coup.
I couldn’t agree more. LindaG, I think that your time in the Air Force made you hope for better from our elites. Sadly, the Comey/Brennan/Clapper axis turned out to be a bunch of smug, sly, A-Holes with no regard for the Constitution that they swore to protect and serve.
The advantage of term limits is that it has the promise of maybe reducing the institutional corruption that we see. Newer faces in leadership doesn’t mean that the leadership will be honest or competent, but it breaks the Pelosi machine and others like hers. I doesn’t address the armies of well paid lobbyists and it doesn’t address generals and admirals retiring only to go to work the next day for a Beltway Bandit. Term limits are only one facet of a comprehensive strategy for draining the swamp.
Nigel’s Brexit Party is gaining a lot of traction in Parliament and many people who wish to keep their seats are defecting and changing their affiliation. It’s a mess, but hopefully the people can take back the government. Of course the House of Lords is outraged that the peasants are so uppity and refusing to understand their place.
