Martial Law Is Coming, But Not Yet!

Published

on

A spokeswoman for the US Army recently informed American citizens to be prepared to comply with soldiers’ directives in a martial law scenario by stating: “Understand that if active-duty military actually get deployed within the United States, that weapon is not just pointed at other people, other countries. It is pointed at you. If you do not get in your house when I tell you to, you become the enemy.”

Comments such as these should be extremely alarming to freedom loving Americans. The idea of the US Military being deployed in American communities is something that hasn’t happened significantly since the US Civil War. And while visions of the US Military denying our Constitutional rights can be frightening, there are lessons from history indicating that the military may not have an easy walk in the park at suppressing the freedoms of a resistant population.

Take the US Civil War as a first example. The South had formed a weak and fledgling government with very few resources, no treasury, no navy, and no organized military in comparison to the North. In terms of railways, seaports, transportation and industrial might, the southern states, on paper, were no match for the north, yet, the war carried on for 4 long years. US Military Veterans of the Texas Revolution, The Bear Flag Revolt, and The Mexican – American War rallied to each other’s side to defend their homes and their families. Not only did these men have military experience and training, they knew the land, the backwoods, the swamps, the mountains, and the hill country better than the invaders from Washington and New York City. Yes they ultimately lost, but skirmishes and outpost hold outs lasted for years long after the war. The point is that people dedicated to defending their freedoms, their families, and their way of life are not easily defeated.

History shows us that military and technological superiority is an unreliable guide to determining the outcome of a war. Relatively recent historical examples include Indochina (1946-1954), Indonesia (1947-1949), the failure of the US to defeat their rivals in Vietnam, the failed Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan in the 1980’s, the US’s struggles dealing with insurgency for years in Iraq, and more recently, the US’s failure in Afghanistan. While weak submissive sheep seem to get all of the media attention and accolades, history is rife with stories of people in this world who would rather die than be subjugated.

An invading force, of any community in America will have to subdue and control the population for the long term. Most communities in America are already highly organized, many of the smaller towns in the country are very provincial, with deep family ties, and more importantly, they are heavily armed with plenty of patriotic veterans. They know the backroads, the geography, and the climate.

These factors do not mean patriots would not suffer heavy casualties. It does not mean victory, but it does demonstrate why, thus far, the globalist enemies of freedom loving Americans have chosen not to engage us in armed conflict, yet. They have instead spent decades influencing our media, Hollywood, our sources of entertainment, recently our military, and buying off our politicians, and corporations, slowly de-industrializing us, and gaining control of our schools and universities in a “long march through the institutions.”

The result is that today, 50% of the US population supports wearing a mask of submission, and taking or mandating an ineffective “vaccine.” Some 3 million Americans are demanding monthly “stimulus” checks of $2,000, and 60% of Americans want stricter gun laws. Nearly half the country is engaged in some type of moral or cultural rot and they are ripe to be told what to do in exchange for free money. The other half of the country will resist, and should the worst possible thing happen, violence; history shows that this young spokeswoman for the US Army, and her ilk, might be in for a rude awakening. This is why, while it captures headlines, it is highly unlikely that we will find ourselves in a martial law situation any time soon. This doesn’t mean it won’t happen.

My generation, Generation X (anyone between the ages of 41-56) are arguably the last generation of Americans to have known and tasted true freedom. And while Gen Xer’s have diverse political ideologies, we all remember a time when it was ok to be free. When you didn’t have to wear a helmet and knee pads to ride a bike or skateboard. We still did the Pledge of Allegiance in elementary school, we watched Red Dawn on cable TV, we were kids when Rocky defeated the big bad Russian guy and was wrapped in red, white, and blue. While we enjoyed entertainment, we resented being raised by it as we were the generation of “latch key kids” so we never really let entertainment control us in the same way as subsequent generations have. This is why our defining generational lyric sarcastically mocked that very notion: “here we are now, entertain us”

Our generation is the last to remember a time when lifestyle choices were “to each is own.” We benefitted a little bit, but not as much as the boomers, from the largest relatively uninterrupted economic boom in American history, and relative peace until the Bush Wars. In our young single years we could drink and have fun at bars and nightclubs and backyard parties, and just have a good time. Everyone didn’t seem to have a political position on, well… everything. People weren’t always coiled and ready to strike. We share these memories of times of freedom, peace, love for humanity, and economic opportunity with the Baby Boomer generation. Unfortunately, we will all be gone in 50 years. The global communist revolutionaries have been waiting patiently since the Frankfurt School days of the 1920’s to make their move. Waiting 50 more years while continuing to press the culture and the institutions will continue to be their strategy. When they do decide to use military violence, all they will have to contend with will be the faded memory of stories of freedom that Generation X shares with their children tonight.

Will Democrats Do What They Must?

Published

on

On a warm August evening in 1974, President Richard M. Nixon said from the Oval Office that he was resigning, becoming the first president to do so. He confessed that he no longer had “a strong enough political base in the Congress” to finish his term.

Sen. Barry Goldwater, Ariz., the 1964 GOP presidential nominee, was a respected conservative leader in a Senate whose Republican ranks were less conservative than now. In a May 1973 interview with Time magazine, Goldwater had given an early warning, “If it can be proved that he (Nixon) lied, resignation would have to be considered. It would be quick. Everything would be over, ended. It wouldn’t drag out like impeachment.”

At a regular Senate Republican Conference lunch on august 6 of 1974, Goldwater had fumed: “There are only so many lies you can take, and now there has been one too many. Nixon should get his ass out of the White House today!” When he went to see President Nixon, Goldwater confided, “There’s not more than 15 senators for you.” After that showdown, the curtain on President Nixon’s presidency came down three days later.

In this challenging time in our history when President Biden’s competency is under serious question, will Democrat leaders have the courage to do the same? With this report, more Democrats and Independents will be less inclined to vote for Biden. That may very well impact the future of many Democrat politicians whose own election could be impacted if their voting base stays home. After his Wednesday night address, the evidence that Biden is in trouble is plainly obvious.

President Biden’s poll numbers are now at an all time low. The shocking Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Hur report suggests that Biden should not be indicted because Biden is “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” that a jury would be unlikely to convict. The Special Counsel also noted that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen;” he noted that such actions “present serious risks to national security.” It is clearly a risk for Biden to remain in office.

When President Biden addressed the country after the report was disclosed, he asserted that his memory was fine, and the report confirms that he was not indicted and did nothing wrong. His comments to the press questions were combative and defensive. He took no personal responsibility, blaming his staff for the faulty storage of classified documents. His message was strident and clear-Trump is guilty, and I did nothing wrong.

If he is not competent to stand trial for his actions, how can he be confident enough to remain president? It’s time for a private confrontation by Democrat leadership. If Biden does not listen, it is time to exercise the 25th amendment option to remove him from office.

It is not easy to use that 25th Amendment option. It is even more difficult with only 9 months before a critical national election. Waiting until the Democrat Convention in August leaves little time to right the ship and promote a replacement candidate.

Democrats, do your job to clean out your own house. President Biden is not competent to meet the challenges of our time. Do it now or pay the price in November. As Republicans, we hope you let Biden remain your candidate, but that is selfish. President Biden is our current leader and his decisions impact all of us and a world in turmoil. This isn’t about politics. We can’t afford even eleven more months of a mentally incompetent President.

Claudine Gay, Ex-Harvard President, Will Strike it Rich in 2024

Gay will be a hot ticket at conferences leading up to the 2024 election.

Published

on

If she were a straight white male, Claudine Gay’s career in academia would have been completely finished weeks ago. Along with the presidents of MIT and (then) University of Pennsylvania, as a result of Gay’s anti-Semitism and her disastrous testimony before Congress in December, much of the country was in an uproar.

Pretzel Logic

Days later, when it was discovered that Gay had plagiarized or inappropriately paraphrased and lifted passages from other authors, from a variety of academic works, that would have sealed her fate. In this utterly illogical age of unreason, just the opposite of what ought to happen actually did happen. The Harvard bigwigs backed her!

Gay punched all of the intersectionality buttons: Black, gay, female, and what else you want to throw into the mix. So was she not terminated from her widely visible, high-profile position. Luckily for Harvard, she quit as president! She retains her cushy post as professor, however, at $900,000 per year. And more amazing good fortune likely is in store for her. She may well reap an income bonanza unlike most other college presidents in the U.S. or around the world.

You have to understand that Gay is actually a hero to many factions on the Left. Let’s see … she stood up to the man! She let Congress have it with both barrels. She defended her academic turf. She stuck with what she believes in. She didn’t kowtow to the U.S. pro-Israeli faction. She spoke her truth! My goodness, what a leader, what a noble soul, what a speaker we might have at our convention!

Media Darlings

A variety of questionable figures on the Left have become darlings to groups who lap up their every word. If you think this won’t happen with Ms. Gay, think again.

Unbelievably, the parents of Trayvon Martin became media darlings. Martin was a violent teenager who punched a bus driver in the face, stole money and other items at school, and was suspended from school at the time of his death. He met his fate while pounding George Zimmerman’s head into a sidewalk.

Democratic groups have celebrated the Martins ever since then. Their public appearances were considered to be special. In another minute, with a cracked skull, Zimmerman might have bled out and died, making Martin a murderer.

Honored at the DNC Convention

The parents of Michael Brown also made the rounds and were accorded celebrity status. The super-sized 18-year-old from Ferguson, MO had stolen cigars and choked a small Asian convenience store clerk just 10 minutes before he had tried to wrestle a gun away from an officer sitting in his police car.

Had Brown, whose fingerprints were all over the officer’s car, successfully taken the officer’s gun, Brown, too, might have been a murderer. At the Democrat National Convention attendees couldn’t get enough of Brown’s noble mother. Sadly, the city of Ferguson, MO, paid Brown’s family an extorted $1.5 million, largely due to fears of more mob violence.

If parents who’ve raised career criminals are celebrated, what are Claudine Gay’s prospects?

Prospects Aplenty

Presumably, she has no violent incidents in her past. Prior to her resignation as Harvard president she may have already, privately signed on with one of the top speaker’s bureaus from either in Boston, New York, or Washington, D.C. Bureaus value having partisan speakers in their lineup when they can book such individuals at large conferences and conventions. Gay will be a hot ticket leading up to the 2024 election.

She will be featured as the head liner at many conferences.

How much can she glean from such appearances? The floor is 20 to 40 thousand per outing, but 50 to 75 thousand is within reach, of which the bureau takes 25%. At that level of earnings for a speech, she could easily exceed another $900,000 by the end of the year. Will you earn $1,800,000 in the next ten years?

Knowing No Bounds

As one audience after another offers her special treatment, her already outsized, over-privileged ego will know no bounds, and all of her past sins will be long forgotten. The groups to whom she speaks will consider themselves to have done their part in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Gay’s intersectionality seals the deal, so by any measure, it’s a win-win-win (bureau, speaker, and audience) for Leftists.

To those on the Right, such developments are sickening, but we’ve come to accept that this is the world as it is currently. With all the devastation and destruction promulgated by the Biden administration, we have much bigger fish to fry.
