To Vanquish the ‘Woke’ Culture We Must March in Unison

Action about progressivism, not despair, will change what is happening in society.

Published

on

The ever-widening cultural rift between the Left and the Right, and the opposing views over issues that seemingly have no middle ground, are tearing apart our society. At least 75 million Americans (Trump voters in 2020) are deeply concerned about the fate of our country, perhaps even more so than at any time in our history, including WWII, the Cold War, and 9/11. In those three cases, some measure of unity existed in addressing our common foes.

Facing the Grotesque and Violent

The Democrat’s long-standing posture, as the party concerned with the common man and woman, has morphed into something grotesque and often violent. We are a nation infected with an entitlement and ‘social justice’ mentality from which many individuals will never retreat. We are flooded with great numbers of low-information voters, most having been brainwashed by our educational system. Will the ‘woke’ hustlers and connivers win election after election for the duration of our nationhood?

What we know for sure: Despair about progressivism doesn’t change what is happening in the country or around the globe. All of the email chatter in the world, between ourselves, doesn’t lessen the pace of the destruction.

To make a vital difference in the health and vitality of our nation requires mobilization. For one, support endeavors that counterbalance the effects of the mainstream media. The nation’s major newspapers, including The New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, among throngs of others, maintain an unwritten cabal to support Joe Biden, irrespective of his illicit dealings with Ukraine and China, militarization of Washington D.C., deep state malfeasance, destruction of women’s sports, border policy lunacy, gross incompetence, dementia, and everything else.

Media giants as impactful as those cited above have been censoring and contorting the news for generations, while constantly claiming that any view from the Right is antiquated or misconceived. So, seek out other news sources such as WhatFingerNews, Newsmax, OneAmericaNews, Townhall, Politicrossing, FlagAndCross, and RedState.

Employing our Billions of Dollars

Rather than lament “progressivism,” we need a sustained effort to fund, support, and maintain print as well as television and internet media which truly counterbalance the effects of the mainstream media. We need major new entries into the media landscape.

For all the billions of dollars held by conservatives, instead of simply backing individual candidates and campaigns, let’s redirect public opinion at the “cellular” level. Rank and file liberals have little chance to achieve objectivity because each day they are thoroughly manipulated. Otherwise, many of them could at least become centrists. Note: In contrast, conservatives have no choice but to be exposed to the constant “progressive” beat of the media machine. Hence, we know all about Leftist spin.

It is time to launch a conservative version of National Public Radio, with the scope and backing that NPR enjoys. It is time to launch a second and even a third Fox-type network, or at least how Fox used to be.

The Columbia School of Journalism and other journalism schools will continue to pump out ready-made liberal journalists. We need counterbalancing institutions that will produce conservative journalists, or at least reasonably objective journalists.

Will a Pulitzer Prize be awarded to a conservative journalist? No. Will the Nobel Prize continue to go to the Barack Obama’s of the world who did nothing to earn his, and after eight years in office did much to have it rescinded? Yes. Thus, we need to launch our own awards and our own institutions that sponsor them.

Keeping the Lefties in Check

We can no longer allow institutions like the ACLU and BLM, and legions of other Open Society funded organizations, to go unchecked in their quest to bring down our nation. Sending more emails to each other, and writing more online comments, as the “progressives” work feverishly to make the U.S. into “just another country” on earth, won’t do much to stop them.

Unchecked, progressives continue to spew their doctrine, which ultimately impoverishes everyone except for a handful of “elite” leaders (see Soviet Union, 1917 to 1989) who enjoy privileged status.

As a political body, a force for good, and a constituency for sanity, let us resolve to erect major institutions that exert influence on the populace with equal, if not greater impact than the liberal cabal. Let’s neutralize the mainstream media, the press rooms, the airwaves, and our universities. This is within our grasp and we have the will.

In-N-Out Burger Serves Customers, not San Francisco

Published

In-N-Out Burger just served San Francisco an everything burger, animal style. It’s heartening to see an iconic restaurant chain stand up to government overreach—and in an ultra-liberal enclave, to boot.

Here’s how it went down. San Francisco issued an edict to force bars and restaurants to verify customers’ COVID vaccination papers before allowing entry.

In response, In-N-Out Burger dutifully posted the city’s vaccination requirement on its windows. This placed the onus where it belongs—on their customers. This is as far as a private company need go.

However, San Francisco sees things much differently. They closed down the city’s only In-N-Out Burger location, on Fisherman’s Wharf. As a result, the burger chain issued this statement:

“Local regulators informed us that our restaurant Associates must actively intervene by demanding proof of vaccination and photo identification from every Customer…. We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business.”

San Francisco’s beef shouldn’t be with In-N-Out Burger—it should be with its unvaccinated citizens. If the city chooses to order an unconstitutional vaccination requirement for bars and restaurants, they should enforce it, not the bars and restaurants. They’re private businesses, not COVID cops.

Burger bouncers

In-N-Out Burger trains their associates to cheerfully ask customers if they’d like to add fries and shakes to their meals, not to question them about controversial vaccination mandates. Additionally, they shouldn’t be required to make their associates act as bouncers to eject unvaccinated customers.

As an aside, America is one of the only nations on Earth that requires vaccination passports. Most if not all other countries require immunity passports, which include the vaccinated and those who are unvaccinated yet have degrees of natural immunity after being infected with the coronavirus.

The San Francisco In-N-Out Burger mess perfectly illustrates what should be happening all over America. Private business is not an arm of local, state or federal government. We’re all dealing with the pandemic—why compound the problem by attempting to force private businesses to enforce governmental mandates?

It makes one wonder how San Francisco leaders failed to see this coming. Can any serious person imagine cheerful, smiling, In-N-Out Burger associates making effective burger bouncers? It’s ridiculous for any city to expect restaurant employees to provide vaccination enforcement.

This smacks of more than mere incompetence. Did the city truly expect bars and restaurants to comply? If so, this seems like autocratic (and dangerous) arrogance.

If San Francisco wants to enforce vaccination inspections, they should do it themselves on the sidewalk in front of bars and restaurants. Closing restaurants that don’t force their employees to act as muscle for the city is poor leadership.

Given In-N-Out Burger’s wild popularity, it’s safe to say that most customers want their locations open. If some side with San Francisco in closing the restaurant and forcing associates to be vaccination police, they can get lesser burgers elsewhere.

Smart business

It’s called freedom. And clearly, it’s in short supply in places like San Francisco. Kudos to In-N-Out Burger for making a stand.

Here’s hoping other private businesses will take heart in In-N-Out Burger’s sound and smart business sense and stand up to one-size-fits-all autocrats. If they do, it’s likely that most of their customers will continue supporting them and they may even gain new ones.

Smart and principled businesses take risks for the right reasons. In-N-Out Burger is right to defy San Francisco. Prediction: By refusing to discriminate when serving its customers, they’ll sell even more burgers, fries and shakes in the City by the Bay and in their other 368 locations across America.

Pandora Papers, a box of trouble for whom?

Published

on

Pandoras box seems to be a well-known metaphor in today’s culture. It is often used to represent unknowingly opening a box of wop-ass. The Greek origins are a little more complex.  Pandora was the first human woman, a gift from the gods. She was made from earth to be lovely as a goddess. With the gift of speech to tell lies, and the mind and nature of a treacherous dog. She was given a golden crown of animals and sea creatures. Pandora was blessed with grace, desire and caring to weaken her limbs.

Pandora was the first woman to live among mortal men, first bride and great misery. She was destined to live with men in times of plenty and to desert them in hard times.  Her name means both “she who gives all gifts” and “she who was given all gifts”. In the mythology she opened a jar that belonged to her husband that contained every misery that affects man to today, but managed to close it before hope was able to escape the jar.

Which brings us to the latest document leak from the International Consortium of investigative Journalists or ICIJ. This is the latest of leaks following the Panama papers and the Paradise papers. ICIJ claims this is the largest leak of tax haven information ever. The 11.9 million financial records include information on 330 politicians and high level leaders, including 35 country leaders. For two years over 600 journalists from 117 countries helped to follow up leads exposed by the leak.

Top leaders with homes in Malibu, Monti Carlo, and high rise towers in Dubai. Investments in sugar plantations, polluting factories, and even a hospital. Secret companies and Trusts to hide assets from taxes and their people. ICIJ likes to point out that this money could have been used to help build roads, hospitals, and schools. They also imply the money comes from ill-gotten gains. Pointing out that hiding money is also used during drug smuggling, human trafficking, bribery, and international terrorism.

In an effort to seem like actual investigative journalists they do mention that nothing they were fed was illegal.  They failed to mention that the tax regulations in every one of the countries involved are written by the rich themselves. Mostly by those not uncovered by the Pandora Papers. Something the 600 seemed to have over looked during their two year investigation is any tax avoidance from the United States. Funny thing that.

To find out why you need to look at who the International Consortium of investigative Journalists is and who finances them. It turns out the group was founded in 1997, they claim to take no public funds only donations. Their largest donors happen to be Soros, thru the The Open Society Foundation. Now needless to say Soros is not going to admit what each one of these people did to stop his march towards one world government headed by Soros and company, but we can speculate.

Tony Blair, supported the American action in Afghanistan. King Abdullanh met with and supported Israel. Vladimir Putin would rather not have a one world government telling him how to run Russia. Shakira no stranger to wokeness had the gall to disagree with the Conovirus imprisonment and demanded children be let outside into the sun and air. You can bet that each one of the targets of this dump had somehow displeased those supporting the great reset.

Each one of these thought they had found a beautiful tax haven not knowing it was she who gives all gifts and conversely she who is given all gifts. By selectively revealing that it is worthwhile to spend money to hide income from those who did not earn it is telling. Besides highlighting that taxes are too high for the services provided. Telling that not one American is mentioned. Telling that the “journalists” didn’t discover how politicians in government get rich on civil service salaries. Not one mention of the heads of NGO’s (non-governmental agencies) have found that the poor are very very good for them. How about a peek into how many of the 1.5 million tax exempt organizations in America are just a tax dodge.

We will wait with the patience of Job for the International Consortium of investigative Journalists to do some real investigating.
