The Injections you haven’t felt…yet

Published

on

Daily across our nation and, to a large extent, around the world, millions of us are receiving injections without realizing it. Not medical injections, but rather, philosophical ones.

An intentional barrage of comments, adjectives, restatements, rule changes and other pinpricks are being peppered throughout society in a low frequency manner. This process has been proven to work throughout history. It’s known as indoctrination. What makes it effective is that each instance is so minimal that it seems harmless. Taken one at a time that may be true, but collectively these injections are ultimately fatal.

Here’s the process:

Take something that is so well established that you don’t have any hope of challenging it. Then instead of a head-on assault, you build an adjacent argument or concept that seems to agree with it. You build consensus and support for your position and then you show the problem with the well established concept. For example: Religion, specifically the Christian religion in America.

American is a Judeo-Christian country. Our Founding Fathers openly proclaimed faith in God and the Bible. They even said in our founding documents that this society, a Republic rooted in individual freedom and individual responsibility, was entirely unsuited for people who didn’t believe in a benevolent loving Creator. The reason is that Christianity, apart from other world religions, provides for a direct personal relationship with God. It has a simple set of rules, the Ten Commandments, and through Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection, it provides for the forgiveness of sins. Other religions pretty much convict you of sins and their God is one of judgment, atonement and vengeance. An angry god with many rituals and rules.

Be A Better Person

In a society based on Christianity people seek to become better. Not just more skilled or knowledgeable, but better as a person. We go to church to learn to live a good life and to thank and praise God for our blessings and abilities. In America we have always celebrated Christmas, Easter, Passover, and our faith. Public places display the Ten Commandments, including schools and legislatures. Public buildings and our currency are engraved with “In God We Trust.” People who pray together become bonded as a family is bonded. We call each other “brother” and “sister.” In the Catholic Church they even call the priest “father.” Church is essential to our culture, and not just for religion.

Our culture is one American culture, not a mix of other distinct cultures. “E Pluribus Unum” our motto, means “Out of many, One.” In other words, when you become a citizen you give up your earlier allegiance. Your new allegiance is to America. “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible (remember that word), with liberty and justice for all.”

If you are going against something as substantial as Christianity in America you had better have a great plan. You have to make your challenger “divisible”. Divide and conquer is the idea. Don’t attack the main body, attack its smaller parts.

Here’s the plan we are experiencing today. Remember, no direct challenges, just build a case for the variations that tempt people onto your path.

Here is the sinister plan

  • Convince people that the compassionate thing to do rather than expressing your faith is to consider the feelings of others who have a different faith from yours. In other words, do this because it is what good people would do.
  • Give them an easy way to speak about this variant position. Call it “honoring diversity” and “respecting all faiths.” Make it noble to do.
  • Create new words to describe the “sin” you are seeking to avoid. Call it “disenfranchisement.”
  • Challenge the foundation of what makes us America. Accuse the Founders of racism, slavery, deism, and infidelity. Don’t attack their ideas like the Constitution or Bill of Rights, instead just make them seem like flawed people.
  • Question the relevance of ancient ideas. Say that those people couldn’t have known the world we live in today, therefore their ideas need to be reconsidered. That allows you to weaken the Constitution, the branches of government, the celebration of Christian holidays, the privileges granted to churches, the decisions made by earlier courts and laws that were passed in prior years.
  • Infiltrate the schools at all levels. Get the children to accept new restrictions on what they can say or do, but don’t restrict them from anything you want to gain acceptance for, say homosexuality as a mainstream life choice, rather than simply the sexual orientation of 3% of people.
  • Introduce new curricula that sell your concepts to students. Get them to be very concerned about things they can’t do anything about, like the climate.
  • Assure that the movies, TV shows and entertainment of all types are on your side, they can make your way become the popular one.
  • Make it more “sinful” to cause someone else to be uncomfortable than it is to lie, steal, loot or harm others. But at the same time make “bullying” out to be the biggest threat to youth in the country. This sets you up to censure and isolate any opponents who exhibit aggressive behavior.
  • Create another adversary that cannot be defeated. “Micro-agression” is a concept that allows you to stain your opponents with “sins” that they aren’t even aware they have committed. Then double down and say that everything is to blame, “Systemic Racism”. Make it so large that it cannot be corrected except through the destruction and replacement of everything we know of as America.
  • Isolate your main opponents and stain them with an unsolvable problem. “White privilege” is something that is born into you and built into society so much that all you can do is apologize, pay reparations for sins you did not commit, and agree to new rules that make you the oppressed for a change.
  • Warp an obscure part of the trusted documents into a meaning that advances your cause. “Separation of church and state” has been re-interpreted to mean that nothing public can be allowed to mention religion, at least not Christianity. The original meaning was that the state would not be allowed to limit the expression and practice of religion, as it had been in Europe and England before America was founded.
  • Once you get all these things in place then you can be bold and audacious about your acts. Find any excuse to protest loudly and if possible, violently as long as it weakens your opponent.
  • Take away the ability for your opponents to fight back. Defund the police or enlist them. Make them seem to be dangerous and irredeemable. If they make a mistake or commit a sin, amplify it to seem like a national corruption scandal. Form violent protests in as many places as possible. Print and distribute signs, create catchy slogans, spread the word and enlist the helpless or weaker communities. Convince them you are their savior and will protect them from the evil police.
  • Create martyrs. George Floyd was a nine time convicted felon and pretty much a low life. He was once on Judge Judy in court and admitted forcibly taking a woman’s car. He said it wasn’t his fault he was arrested and wrecked her car. The police shouldn’t have tried to stop him. His father sat near him in shame. Since Floyd died at the hands of a cop, he was a perfect martyr. Now they’ve named a plaza for him. US Congress held a kneeling ceremony for him. Legislation has been passed in his name, etc. Recently there have been other potential martyrs, but upon learning that they were white, the protestors cancelled their protests.
  • Start introducing the most audacious and outrageous things into schools that you can imagine. Outlaw standard texts and favorite authors and common practices by accusing them of micro aggression, systemic racism, implied bias, etc. Get away from the familiar and loved things as much as possible. Note: Rules for Radicals, Saul Alinsky’s book for a leftist revolution, is dedicated to Lucifer (Satan). Yet it is widely offered in US public schools today.
  • If you have a big opponent, create hatred for him or her with all the excerpted quotes or misstatements you can muster. The mainstream press did a masterful job of making Trump the most hated man in America despite 78 million who voted for him. Nobody voted FOR Joe Biden, they simply voted AGAINST Donald Trump.
  • Once you get your adversary to be hated, go after anyone who agrees with him. Call them a Trump Supporter as if it is a stain of sin.
  • Put your candidate in office and on day one ERASE every vestige of your predecessors. Executive Orders removed or cancelled most everything Trump did for our society and economy. On day two, put forward the most outrageous spending plans and rule changes you can dream of. Now’s your moment, society is at a tipping point and bold actions can shove it over the cliff.

Folks, we’ve been infected by Leftism for a long time but it has metastasized lately and we are in Stage Four infection. America is in serious danger of collapse from internal tensions, economic overload, weakened defenses, non stop invasion, cultivated uncertainty and disdain among our youth, disrespect for law enforcement, disrespect for religion, fears of judgement and accusations of racism, distrust of all other humans due to the Covid phobia (not the disease, but the fear of it), and the wearing down of our ability to fight back against adversaries both foreign and domestic (our own government).

It’s what you say that discloses your thoughts 

Political correctness started as an innocuous way of being more courteous. It has metastasized into a form of thought control and a way of limiting people’s ability to organize and gain cooperation.

We are at war internally but not a war with rifles. It’s a war of ideas, rules, expectations, social media edits, cancel culture, educational corruption, and the lowering of personal, public and political standards toward decadence, disgrace and destruction. When it is OK to publicly celebrate sexual intercourse and perform as if in a porn club e.g. WAP (by Cardi B) at the Grammys, but it is not OK to use the “N” word even in reference, unless your skin is dark, then we have gone beyond the pale. Gomorrah is probably a new name we might see recommended to replace America, unless we stand up to all of this indoctrination in daily life and in public forums. Speak up! Be heard, be seen, stand up for what you believe.

I’m a white Christian, heterosexual, veteran, patriotic, 50 year married, proud father and husband, and a Conservative. I believe in God and in the United States Constitution. I believe children should be taught how to become self-reliant good people…in that order. If you can’t take care of yourself then you’ll always be dependent on someone else. When you have your own house in order you can be helpful and generous to others. Can I get an Amen?

Make Universities Accountable for Predatory Student Loan Abuse

Published

on

The Biden administration is still talking about delivering on the President’s promise to relieve student loan debt for many Americans. There is continuing discussion on how much debt should be forgiven, how to pay for it, and whether it is fair to all those who have diligently and painfully worked to already pay off their own student loans. After all, if you’re going to eliminate student debt to buy votes, why just limit it to student debt?

Unfortunately for Biden, according to numerous sources including National Review, the executive branch has no generalized power to forgive any amount of student debt. Even Nancy Pelosi confirmed simply that “the president can’t do it. That’s not even a discussion.” The Department of Education came to the same verdict, determining that the executive branch “does not have the statutory authority to cancel, compromise, discharge, or forgive, on a blanket or mass basis, principal balances of student loans, and/or to materially modify the repayment amounts or terms thereof.”

Of course, even if he had the authority, forgiving student debt doesn’t make the debt go away. Reality has a way of breaking into such “freeloading” dreams. It’s pay me now, or somebody else pay me later. But why should some future taxpayer pay off anyone else’s student debt?

Whatever happened to wise warnings of “student beware.” When you get an education and agree to pay the tuition, you ought to realize that you must at some point pay for that education. You signed on the bottom line. Face your real-world responsibilities. Hopefully, you picked a degree major that will ensure a career capable of paying off your loans. Students clearly have some responsibility, but what about the universities that took advantage of the money coming from those loans?

After all, there is ample evidence that student tuitions exploded far faster than inflation when government funds became readily available for student loans. Complaints of excessive tuition increases by students trapped in their programs tended to be met with a less than caring response—pound sand!

Since 2008, the tuition cost or a four-year college degree has increased nearly 25%. In that same period, student debt has doubled, increasing by 107%. 2015 study found that a dollar of subsidized student loans results in a published tuition increase of 58 cents at a typical university, An NBER paper suggests that changes to federal student loans are more than sufficient to explain tuition increases at private nonprofit colleges. And a 2014 study found that for-profit colleges eligible for federal student aid charged tuition 78% higher than that of similar but aid-ineligible institutions.

In short, there is no doubt that tuition was rising faster than the inflation level. Evidence has been clear for decades. In 1987, Secretary of Education William J. Bennett argued that “increases in financial aid in recent years have enabled colleges and universities to raise their tuition, confident that Federal loan subsidies would help cushion the increase.”

Bennett pointed out in 1987 that federal student aid had risen 57 percent since 1980, while inflation had been 26 percent. A 2020 analysis by the Congressional Budget Office brought the numbers up to date: “Between 1995 and 2017, the balance of outstanding federal student loan debt increased more than sevenfold, from $187 billion to $1.4 trillion (in 2017 dollars).” What is the lesson? The more federal aid to students is available colleges raise tuition more. Salaries rise and bureaucracies expand. There are more courses, more dorms, dining halls, lavish recreational centers, and more money for endowments.

Far too many students find that once they begin their education, their schools raise the tuition at such a high rate that their debt explodes. The university builds their endowment, and the “trapped” student is compelled to finish what they started at a cost they did not expect to have to pay. In such a situation, should not the university be responsible for any increased cost above the increase in cost of living during the same time? It’s time for universities to take responsibility for their share of student debt.

The universities that benefited from these loans should have a part in footing the bill. That means universities that raked in millions to inflate endowments should be holding the bag for those who can’t afford to pay their loans. With universities holding hundreds of billions of dollars in tax-free endowments, any government program to relieve student debt should be completely dependent on taxing those university endowments.

It’s time to counter the Democrats’ vote-buying scheme by making lasting changes to the student loan process. That means putting universities on the hook for their predatory behavior. That will go much further than a temporary payoff that does nothing to solve what is causing the problem.

Replacement Theory is Not a Theory

Self-loathing liberals despise anything which they even remotely suspect somehow disparages minorities, and that includes all white people

Published

on

In 2015, Sue Payne, a conservative radio host, was inadvertantly included in internal White House phone call representing the “Task Force of New Americans.” This endeavor was led by Cecilia Munoz and was comprised of 16 members of the Obama Cabinet. The Obama-Biden administration had planned to initiate a “country within a country.”

Obama goal was to quickly grant citizenship to 13 to 15 million illegal aliens. As these “new Americans” came forward, the communities where they would be placed would be designated as “receiving communities.” As these “new Americans” came out of the shadows, existing U.S. citizens would be pushed into the shadows.

It was emphasized that the newly minted “Americans” must be informed of “the benefits they are entitled to” and that they would “navigate not assimilate.” Fortunately these plans did not materialize.

Fast Forward to the Present

Jimmy Fallon announced to his studio audience one night that the white population of the U.S. had declined 8.6% in the last ten years, to which his audience responded with boisterous laughter and applause. He was shocked but sought to hide it.

Fallon has said, “The results of the 2020 census just came out. For the first time in American history the number of white people went down,” upon which the predominantly Caucasian audience responded with “glee and elongated clapping.”

Interesting reaction to that,” Fallon said. Interesting? More like bizarre. How can a plethora of white individuals, not merely those in attendance that evening, but rather untold millions across the nation loathe themselves so completely, that they revel in seeing their numbers drop? Do Japanese wish to see their numbers decline relative to the country’s overall population? Do Chileans? Finns? Jordanians? Tunisians? Tucker Carlson is completely correct on this topic and, as such, is the favorite target of the demented Left.

The Left is Giddy

To be sure, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and the ultra-obnoxious Steven Colbert have catered exclusively to ‘progressives’ for upwards of eight years. Progressives populate their audiences, and progressive ‘elites’ dominate their guest spots.

Amazingly, non-hispanic whites in the U.S. today represent only 57.8% of the population, their lowest percentage ever and down from above 80% a mere two score earlier. Is this a cause for celebration? At the Washington Post, uber-RINO columnist Jennifer Rubin joyously greeted the data, citing it as it “fabulous news.”

Concurrently, if you even hint that the demographic decline of white Americans might prove to be unfavorable, you’ll be demonized as a dangerous individual. However, if you seek the elimination of people based on their skin color, and they are white people, this is perfectly okay. Indeed, it’s delightful. It’s entirely progressive! Let us all rejoice!

Self-Hate Abounds

The self-loathing that untold numbers of white liberals have for whites in general is mind-boggling. They have been taught — actually, brainwashed — to regard their ethnicity and skin color as invariably detrimental to society. To them, by virtue of their birth alone, they represent an extreme cultural blight.

This enormous group, tens of millions strong, is comprised largely of Democrats who also happen to comprise the core of cancel culture. These self-loathing guardians seek to financially and politically cremate any person, place, thing, or idea that they regard as offensive to others and, paradoxically, that aren’t necessarily directly offensive to themselves.

Why do white liberals act this way? They are self-appointed care-takers of what they believe is social fairness, justice, and equanimity. At the same time, it’s eye-opening to discover that most minority individuals are flummoxed by what whites seek to cancel, merely because the white majority thinks it offensive to select minorities.

You dislike The Cat in the Hat? On January 21, 2015, Michelle Obama invited The Cat in the Hat characters to the White House to read to young students as part of her ‘Let’s Move, Let’s Read!’ initiative. She noted, “Pretty much all the stuff you need to know is in Dr. Seuss.”

Windmill Jousting

Did anybody in attendance that day, Ms. Obama included, regard these characters to be portraying racial stereotypes? Was anybody offended, insulted, or outraged? Newspaper accounts and photographs indicate that just the opposite was true.

So when did The Cat in the Hat and other Dr. Seuss books, and his various characters, become ‘racist’ as not a single word changed, in any of his books? The quick answer: Self-loathing liberals despise anything which they even remotely suspect somehow disparages minorities.

Ironically, these same self-loathing liberals feel morally superior to everybody else. Thus they exhibit an odd psycho-social phenomenon that researchers will be studying for decades, if not centuries, to come: How individuals, programmed en masse to hate themselves, decided to despoil any aspect of our culture that they believe does not meet their ‘standards.’

Stranger Than Fiction

These obtuse standards become entrenched as part of liberal, Leftist, unassailable doctrine and spread via the internet like kudzu. And who among them can tolerate debate of official doctrine?

Those on the right observe this phenomenon with incredulity. How do so many people so thoroughly come to hate themselves, especially for phantom faux pas (i.e. that they haven’t committed)?

As they proceed with their many forms of boycotts, doxxing, and ostracism, and deepen their embrace of cancel culture, it’s difficult to predict when the dam will break. Self-loathing whites, you see, glean positive strokes and virtue signals from one another. They are giddy to be accepted as a member of the ‘morally superior’ strata of humankind.

Self-loathing liberals are hell bent on their ‘righteous mission.’ Each one knows to the marrow in his, her, or its bones that unquestionably they are on the ‘right side’ of history, when in actuality they are on the maniacal side of cultural and social suicide.
