The Sinister Domino Effect that is coming next

Published

on

What you do or don’t do today will affect what you are able do tomorrow. There’s always a “domino effect.”

Whether you are thinking about the game of Dominoes or the pizza company Domino’s ®,  there are similar lessons to be exposed.

When Domino’s Pizza entered the market, they distinguished themselves by offering home delivery and guaranteeing hot, fresh products. Nice. Dining at home took on a new flavor and we became accustomed to getting our meal within 30 minutes or there was no charge. Good deal.

Next, other food companies adopted Domino’s successful model and the home delivery of all kinds of meals became commonplace. Uber Eats and Door Dash compounded the convenience. Even Cooler. And, we were getting spoiled.

Grocery stores did something similar toward the end of the Baby Boom era (1946-64), they became Super Markets and expanded into the distribution of just about every life essential related to food or household well being. This was so popular that they popped up everywhere. Home buyers even specified that they wanted a home convenient to a supermarket and retail food outlets. No longer was a nearby public school the first amenity they searched for.  Movie theaters with multiple screens soon repeated the trend.

People stopped raising crops for their own food. They stopped stocking up supplies for the winter and canning foods for potential shortages.

More importantly they stopped knowing how to do these things. (Pause to reflect on that.) 

This was not just a few people, this is the majority of the US population. During World War II families everywhere, even in urban apartments, raised “Victory Gardens” to provide for their own food and to lessen the demand on our nation’s resources. Everything we did was to support and not hinder the war effort. We were committed to winning the war for freedom no matter how difficult it became. Today home gardens are an amusing luxury for people with lots of free time. Almost none of us could survive for long without the stores and restaurants we rely on.

Then Came Covid

We learned through the Covid19 passage that movies at home on a huge flat screen TV could be almost as good as the theater experience, and a lot cheaper. We learned that many of the meetings that used to require travel and assembly could be done just as well via Zoom or Skype. Great, we saved time, money and remained productive. We developed hygiene habits that should have been practiced long ago. And we learned how to combat a major disease through drastic changes in public behavior. Also good.

However

Schools, where kids socialized, exercised and learned together became sad sit-in-your-room Zoom experiences that held almost no social value. Yes, they were learning but only the lessons, not the life skills. Friendships atrophied and no new ones were forming. Compound this isolation with the “cabin fever” effect of spending too much time indoors and you get a very different graduate at the end of the school process. Masks made it worse, we were afraid of ALL other people, even the harmless looking ones. The mask reminded us how threatening any life form might be to us and it obscured the facial expressions that centuries of humans have used to “read people” as a friend or foe.

One day in early 2020 I was on a remote hiking trail in California and encountered another hiker going the opposite direction with his dog. He was wearing a mask. Far from civilization and alone on a mountain trail, he was masked. As we passed he yelled at me for not wearing a mask too. He was irate and screamed at me for being so reckless in my behavior! Imagine if we had been in a congested urban setting like a store or shopping center. I told him to find someone else to scold. Everyone was afraid and nobody knew what to do about it. Most of us just masked up and stayed six feet apart (a regimen from 1918, not a scientific solution.)

Free-Falling into Debt

Will America soon be bankrupt? The Biden administration seems committed to it. The spending rampage is unbound by rational thinking or intentions to perpetuate our society. It’s as if the parents are away and the young teenagers have control of the bank account, liquor cabinet and car keys. Trillions of dollars in debt at some point soon will be too great to ever be repaid. Then somebody else will soon “own” us.

What is the Domino Effect of all this?

The net effect of these factors has been an increased weakness in our society. We are not self-reliant, nor self-sufficient anymore. Basic skills like those taught in Home Economics and Industrial Arts (Shop) classes in public schools have been replaced by gender studies, racial sensitivity, and valuing diversity. We are no longer able to take care of ourselves without our familiar and convenient resources.

When I was in the first years of my Army enlistment, I was trained as a Combat Medic and Corpsman. The medical corps’ slogan was “To Preserve The Fighting Strength.” We were all clear on our role: to keep the fighting soldiers healthy enough to continue the fight. Today, it is doubtful that many of us could even put up a fight compared to what our parents and grandparents could do.

Who cares? Why do we need to change?

Because we are no longer as safe as we think we are. The more we lose basic abilities, the more vulnerable we become to even mild threats.

If you need to bring down an overwhelming opponent, the best strategy is to weaken it first. In our case we have taken care of that ourselves. It’s almost like we are inviting opponents to take us down.

We have been teaching our adversaries how to defeat us!

How do you know where your opponent’s vulnerabilities lie? If you don’t know, then you allow your adversary to show you. Nature gets this. All predators, large and small, know that the least effective way to defeat an opponent is to confront them directly. The best plan is to make some small attacks with minimal risk to yourself and then observe how your opponent reacted. You stalk them, test them, observe them, taunt them and watch for openings. So, if you are Iran or China or Russia, or ISIS, what you would do is cause a crisis and then watch and document how the USA responds. Once you see how they communicate, organize, shift resources, react in defense, and reinforce their defenses, then you can find out where their weak spots are. That’s when you would attack all of the weakest points at once. Game over!

We did this in Iraq and Kuwait. The first Gulf War was over in a matter of days because we practiced what we called “Instant Thunder.” We hit every vital target of Saddam Hussein’s regime in one huge sweep. Overnight they were out of the war business. They couldn’t move, transport, communicate, resupply or even know what they were facing. Their only option was to give up and evacuate from Kuwait. But we did this with airstrikes and lots of traditional military moves.

Today’s wars are not always “military”…at first.

Recent weeks have held news of many attacks. Pipelines have been attacked and disabled large segments of our transportation network. Computer systems and power grids have been hacked and disabled large geographic areas. Government data bases have been hacked and vital information shared with countries who want to harm us. Our southern border is “hacked” daily by thousands of illegal invaders surrounded by innocent looking families and children seeking refuge. Our political system has been invaded by Islamists, Marxists, Communists and Socialists who have no intention of allowing Freedom and Democracy to endure. School boards and Universities have been infiltrated by racists and anarchists parading as normal citizens while eroding our education system from within. City councils have been infiltrated or even taken over by people who are hell-bent on weakening our police force, enabling BLM and Antifa thugs, erasing our societal sense of history, and selling us a new virus of Woke-ism that will make us afraid to speak to each other.

Every response we give to these threats also exposes our preferred defense strategies and therefore our weaknesses too. They ARE watching! Those who want to defeat America and replace us with a Marxist society are always watching. We need to show them our strength again. We need to become as self-sufficient and self-reliant, and well-connected with each other as we can. We need to become strong again. This must happen just like their taunting attacks have happened, on all levels, not just one.

If we fail to become stronger, more educated, more productive, more aware, more courageous, more caring about each other, more fiscally solvent, and more committed to our Constitution and our Democratic Republic, then we set up the Domino Effect for the bad guys. We cannot afford to line up our assets around wokeness, inclusion, convenience and luxury, lest everything falls from just one blow. We must become Good again, Strong again, Financially Sound again, Emotionally Mature again, Willing to Struggle again and Prepared again if we are to be safe.

As we can see from this Democrat administration, House and Senate, your votes really really count! One vote here and there that is cast, because you like what it symbolizes or “the message it sends”, erodes our ability to sustain our democracy! Don’t vote your feelings, vote your deepest American values. We have a lot of damage repair to do. Please: Vote for Conservative leaders at All levels for as many years as it takes to purge the weaknesses and poison of this Woke generation.

Biden’s Evil Empire Must Be Defeated!

Democrats have no issues or results to run on. They are left with lies, name-calling, and transparent taxpayer funded bribes.

Published

on

President Biden is now angry every time he speaks, and it’s clear he will keep yelling until morale and his polls improve. He calls a celebration for his Inflation Reduction Act on a day the Dow Jones goes down over a thousand points and inflation remains high at 8.3%. What does he do after his delusional party? He retreats to Delaware for more rest and safety.

The Biden lies keep coming. It’s all talking points that are meant to attract the ill-informed, but his words are even hard to believe for loyal Democrats. When people go to fill their car with gas, buy food for the family, or face rent increases, they come face to face with the stark reality. Prices are up—way up! Two-thirds of America are reportedly living paycheck to paycheck. The mortgage rate is exploding, taking home ownership out of the reach of millions of Americans. The numbers don’t lie. It’s hard for voters not to notice when they face daily reminders of how their standard of living is falling like a stone.

It’s time for American voters to wake up. The November midterms are just weeks away! Biden keeps yelling that MAGA Republicans are the most dangerous threat America faces. Why? They dare believe his election victory was a fraud. They dare to believe that the Southern border is not even close to being secure. They are watching illegal aliens and dangerous drugs flood across that “secure border” daily. Yes, MAGA Republicans are indeed dangerous—dangerous to the Democrats’ slim control of the Senate and the House.

Democrats want you to believe the hype that they are closing the gap with Republicans. But when you see the low turnout at Biden events, you have to wonder. The voter enthusiasm for actually voting in November rests with the Republicans. They are mad as hell and can’t wait to do everything they can to vote out every Democrat running.

Biden and his minions keep trying to pay off potential voters, but there are serious doubts as to whether you even have the authority to deliver what they promise. Many assert that relieving student loan debt is illegal. To keep the hope alive, the Biden administration isn’t even attempting to allocate the funds until December. They have until November 15th, after the election is over, to register for debt relief. How convenient! Democrats get their votes, and they get stuck with an empty promise. President Biden is the most generous “candy man” President in history. But he doesn’t use his own money. Democrats love using taxpayer money to pay off anyone willing to support their party.

President Biden and fellow Democrats keep calling the demonstration on January 6th and the capitol incursion an “insurrection.” This has to be the first “insurrection” attempted without guns. Biden doesn’t even admit that the only person shot to death was a Republican. Such claims of “insurrection” are nonsense! The real assault on America was occurring in major Democrat-controlled cities where rioting and looting destroyed businesses and lives. They watched liberal DA’s do nothing to hold the rioters responsible. Voters don’t feel safe. On the basis of the evident facts and their party platforms and performance, which party do you think will win the law-and-order voter?

To make citizens less safe, Democrats call for more gun control at a time there are not enough law enforcement officers to protect our citizens. Fearing crime, Democrats want to make it harder for citizens to get the weapons they need to protect their own families. Democrats have no reservations in funding the hiring of thousands of armed IRS agents to work their will on taxpayers. At a time Biden and his party won’t keep Americans safe, it’s time to elect politicians who will stand for our second amendment rights!

Biden claims that it‘s the Republicans who are denying fair elections and stopping needed reforms. But it is the Democrats who want to recklessly extend voting days and end requirements for voter IDs. If Democrats are so sure that many Americans aren’t smart enough to secure and carry a valid ID, they should make that their campaign focus. All voters have two months to secure an ID. If someone isn’t smart enough to take their ID to the polls, maybe it’s not wise for them to vote, no matter what their party.

To Democrats, “Global Warming” is irrefutable. It’s “settled science.” Why else would they support investing billions in their “Green New Deal” and unproven alternative energy schemes? Democrats want those who do not accept such claims to be labeled as “science deniers.” True science is built on constantly questioning, testing, and continuing to study any hypothesis. The weather of earth is such a complex system with millions of uncontrolled variables, it’s crazy to accept any of these claims as “settled science.” It will be decades before we see whether changes in weather patterns are cyclical or linear. But what do Democrats say of such valid reservations—“You should be ashamed of yourself to disagree with our truth!”.

Democrats are doing everything they can to increase the racial animus in America. They claim there is “white privilege” and “systemic racism.” Why? They hope creating a huge “white supremacy” enemy will draw minorities to their party for protection. There are “racists” of all races in America, but they are few in any race. America remains the least racist country in the world. There are thousands of amazing black Americans who have thrived in this country. They have started their own companies and elevated their standard of living. They succeeded not by looking to Washington but by earning their success the old-fashioned way—by working their tails off. Democrats want minorities dependent, not successful. No minority should look to Democrats for special programs; follow the example of the millions of minorities who have successfully lived their own American Dream. It’s time to live your own.

Democrats have no issues or results to run on. They are left with lies, name-calling, and transparent taxpayer funded bribes! After all, if you can’t win on issues, try demeaning half of Americans as “dangerous” extremists. Americans can’t let this work. Get mad. Get ready for the most important election of your life. Be a contagious conservative and let others know the truth about this administration. Take back America by voting for every Republican candidate willing to serve. Remember this important truth—If it’s not close, they can’t cheat!

Tucker: Martha’s Vineyard Won’t Accept The Migrants

They’re the people who make the rules, and in this case they had no intention of following them, not even for a day.

Published

on

Tucker takes a look at what went down over 50 immigrants in Martha’s Vineyard last week, a place that claims to welcome all with open arms without question, unless they’re … sent over by a politician … on a plane … without permission … like a certain someone has been doing with several thousands of … oh, hello, Mister President.

Highlights include:

“If there’s one thing we have learned about the people who make the rules, it’s that they have no intention of following them, any of them, ever, ever. They command you to wear a mask as you jog alone in the park while they head to dinner barefaced at the French Laundry, that happened. They harangue you of the carbon footprint of your lawnmower as they fly to Aspen on their private jets. You see that every day. How many members of Congress that voted to expand the police powers of the IRS don’t pay their own taxes? More than a few.”

“How many politicians who fervently support gun control have armed bodyguards that you pay for? Well, let’s see, every single one.”

“Another word for this is a ‘caste system,’ which is increasingly what we have in the United States. Caste systems are common in poor countries, the countries from which most of our immigrants come, but it’s the opposite of the traditional American system, which was imperfect egalitarianism.”

“In the old America, every citizen was considered equal under the law, as well as in the eyes of God. Everybody had to follow the same rules because nobody underneath it all was more important than anyone else, we were all citizens. Citizenship implies inherent rights, rights that politicians cannot under any circumstances take from you because they did not bestow them in the first place, you were born with them.”

“Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida generously sent a plane load of 50 illegal aliens from Venezuela to the Vineyard, which is a small, famously affluent island off the coast of Massachusetts. Martha’s Vineyard has everything you could ever want in the world, except racial diversity. The island is whiter than a Swedish bluegrass festival, and DeSantis was trying to help. Under normal circumstances, the residents of Martha’s Vineyard would’ve had no choice but to smile and say, ‘thank you, Governor DeSantis.’ When government officials send you the blessed gift of diverse immigrants or refugees, you must accept. That’s the ‘rule.'”

“That’s how America works. Everybody knows it because it’s been going on for a very long time, that’s the rule. But, it turns out the people of Martha’s Vineyard aren’t just anyone. They’re the people who make the rules, and in this case they had no intention of following them, not even for a day.”
