The Stoning Of Trump

You don't have to look very hard to see daily reminders that we are in a tribal and religious war, not a political one. The impeachment farce is the most visible reminder. On the one hand we have Democrats trying to pretend like it is this super serious and somber affair, and then you have Nancy Pelosi giddy as a schoolgirl invited to the dance, signing the articles of impeachment with personalized pens, one for each letter of her name, that she then handed out like prizes. Maxine Waters was holding hers up:

Watch this video from Mark Dice when he splices in a couple of clips from liberal talking heads speaking in hushed, reverential tones about this entire ridiculous spectacle.

I started at the relevant point but the whole thing is pretty entertaining, especially like I pointed out with dimwit Maxine Waters holding up her commemorative pen like she won some especially fun prize in kindergarten for using the big girl potty. What an imbecile, it is embarrassing that Waters has any role in our nation more serious than bagging groceries.

Listen to what Chris Matthews says about people walking bogus "impeachment" articles across a hallway:

There's a sacramental quality to this. There's a...there's a ritual.

Some other leftist talking head replied:

There is something almost religious to it.

They are filled with awe and religious fervor because an openly partisan farce was playing out before them, people who have been following the political scene for decades. A sane individual might ask "What the hell is wrong with these people?!" but they are simply religious fundamentalists.

The Zman had a great article about this other other day, referencing Orwell's 1984Our Emmanuel Goldstein....

One of the best observations Orwell had about totalitarian society is had to have an opponent, against which everyone must rally. It was not just a practical opponent, like another country. The forever bad guy had to have a spiritual dimension. In opposing the bad guy, the members of the society established their commitment to the cause and thus their standing in society. Emmanuel Goldstein in the Novel 1984 and Snowball in the novella Animal Farm are his famous examples.

Of course, modern totalitarian states are almost always the result of some mass movement that swept to power. Their ascent was either based on their promise to reform or their ability to demolish the prevailing order. Eric Hoffer noted that “mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a God, but never without belief in a devil.” The bogeymen in the Orwell novels were such devils. They were the center of the moral universe for the totalitarian society.

The important part of this bogeyman role is that the bad guy cannot simply be a man with whom you can reason or even conquer. The bad guy has to have supernatural abilities and maybe be unconquerable. In the 1984, Emmanuel Goldstein is powerful enough to cause all of the regimes troubles and smart enough to avoid getting caught by the party. The value of the supernatural enemy is that they can never truly be defeated, so they are a convenient scapegoat.

RTWT, for real. The Zman talks about Russia but Trump is the Emmanuel Goldstein. He has this supernatural power over people. Black women even blame Trump for making them fat. We are told he is constantly sending subliminal psychic messages to his "white supremacist" followers. To the Left in America, Trump is not simply a political adversary like Jeb Bush or Mitch McConnell. He is a nearly all-powerful evil entity.

Trump is a secularized version of a shaitan, an evil spirit. The carrying of the articles of impeachment through the Capitol rotunda was to the Left a type of Stoning of The Devil, the Islamic ritual of taking a break from throwing stones at women by throwing stones at a walls to smite the devil.

Just like throwing pebbles at a wall doesn't actually accomplish anything, neither does transmitting the articles of impeachment to the Senate. What is important is the religious euphoria it creates with the impeachment having the added bonus of personalized commemorative pens. Orange Man Bad is the contemporary Satan and the ritualistic denunciation of OMB is a religious obligation of the Woke.

No wonder the Left loves Islam, it shares many similarities with their secularized religion. Sadly no Democrats were trampled to death in a stampede. Maybe next time.

Trump personifies everything the neo-Maoist Left hates about heritage Americans. He doesn't play by their rules, he says stuff you aren't allowed to say, he is singularly unimpressed with them and worst of all he regularly mocks them. If you have ever poked fun at a King James Only type, you know how prickly and quick to anger religious zealots can be. What is really amusing about the whole thing is that Trump has been an enormous let down for the Right. Some decent judges, some improvement to the regulatory environment but that is about it. The only real positives of the Trump era are the ongoing public breakdowns of liberals and the exposing of the traitorous fifth column in American "conservatism". To hear the Left talk, Trump is this dictator who gets everything he wants, instead of a generally petulant narcissist who is regularly thwarted by random judges.

Just as I don't care if Muslims wearing towels throw rocks at a wall, I don't care if Nancy Pelosi gives away pens while grinning like Skeletor. But we know all too well that Muslims are not content to throw rocks at walls and often decide to accelerate things a bit by blowing up infidels. In the same manner, the American Left is growing impatient and even angrier as they see their promised smiting turn into a nothing-burger. Trump will survive the Senate trial barring some incredible shift and that means the Left will have delivered to their rabid Fremen jihadi the long prophesied impeachment but the Great Satan Trump will still be in the White House and sending out mocking tweets. What will they do when it is clear Trump will be in office throughout 2020 and worse yet if they think that Joe Biden is going to be the Democrat nominee? We might get a taste next week in Richmond, although one antifa group is now saying they are going to show up in support of gun rights, which is both funny and highly suspicious.

As a survivor of many theological battles on the internet, I can tell you that it is impossible to reason with fanatics. From Canadian cultists to King James Only types to Mormons, the zealots are mostly intractable and in the case of the anti-white neo-Maoist cult, not only must Trump be vanquished but his supporters must be punished. We are about at the end of the pebble throwing stage. What comes next is going to be far worse.

Manufacturing A Crisis

Rahm Emmanuel famously opined that you should never let a good crisis go to waste. This is a lesson the Left has embraced wholeheartedly. Along with this tactic comes the time honored tradition of manufacturing a crisis where none existed. While I try to keep my conspiracy theories in check on these pages, I have little doubt that at a minimum the government knew something in advance of things like the sinking of the Lusitania, the attack on Pearl Harbor and 9/11.

That brings us to the looming January 20th Second Amendment rally in Richmond, Virginia. As I already wrote, the ghost of Charlottesville is looming large in the minds of many people. I posted this morning on Twitter the following.

My tweet was in response to this news coming out yesterday:

Virginia governor declares state of emergency in advance of pro-gun rally near state Capitol

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency in Virginia from January 17-21, amid plans by pro-gun groups to hold a rally at the Capitol on January 20. Northam said law enforcement officials have identified "credible threats of violence surrounding the event," including white nationalist rhetoric and plans by out-of-state militia members to attend.

The measure will temporarily ban guns from the Capitol grounds in Richmond. 

Yes, Governor Ralph "Got Away With Blackface" Northam is declaring a "state of emergency" in response to the citizens of his own state exercising their Federal and state constitutionally protected right to free assembly and the petitioning of their government. It is almost like Coonman thinks the people of Virginia are the enemy or something.

Like the sun rising in the East, CBS predictably wasted no time in reminding people of their version of events in Charlottesville:

"These are considered credible and serious threats," Northam said. "This intel comes from mainstream channels both off line and online such as alternative dark web channels used by white nationalists outside of Virginia. These are fueled by misinformation and conspiracy theories. No one wants another incident like the one we saw in Charlottesville in 2017. We will not allow that mayhem and violence."

A woman was killed and dozens more injured in Charlottesville in August 2017 when a white supremacist rammed his car into a group of counter-protesters during a white nationalist rally.

"Serious and credible threats". Right. I spend a lot more time on dissident right and gun rights websites than Northam does and if anything everyone I see is either preaching restraint or urging people not to go at all. There are no credible threats but invoking Charlottesville and muttering about "alternative dark web channels" makes it all sound super scary.

Apparently Northam doesn't have the authority to ban guns from the state capitol grounds during a "state of emergency" but that hasn't stopped him. He simply declared 14 acres of open ground on the capitol grounds an emergency "shelter". Fortunately the Virginia Citizens Defense League is suing the state for an injunction this morning.

VCDL Expected To Seek Injunction Blocking Northam’s Gun Ban

There is a good primer in that article into Northam's shady use of "shelter" to ban lawful firearms from an open public space. RTWT.

The Left is using the same old playbook, trying to control the narrative and creating a crisis where none exists. I mean "alternative dark web channels"? Come on. No matter what happens, the media will blame in on "white nationalists", none of whom are planning on attending as far as I know.

On the other hand, if the patriots in Virginia get cowed by this, then Northam wins anyway. Better to show up and be counted, no matter the consequences, then to keep retreating out of fear of getting in trouble. We cannot let the Left use "Charlottesville" to suppress our free assembly in the same way they have used accusations of "racism" for decades to restrict free speech. What are we supposed to do, never assemble anywhere in public again because it could be the next Charlottesville? Don't you see where that ends?

The neo-Maoist left in America is counting on heritage Americans to be shamed and frightened into silence. Our inaction is all the incentive they need to ratchet up their attacks. The people who hate heritage Americans don't see our caution and forbearance as sensible and laudable, they see it as weakness to be exploited. When we blink and stand down, they accelerate their efforts. Enough is more than enough. What is to stop Governor Northam from declaring a perpetual state of emergency throughout Richmond and declaring the whole city a "shelter" and then expanding outward from there? Nothing but those willing to stand up and be counted.

More From Jennifer McCormick

When last we left "Republican" Indiana State Superintendent of Education Jennifer McCormick, she was siding with homosexuals who insisted on teaching in Christians schools over the right of Hoosier families to freedom of religion and the right of educational choice we have in Indiana.

This morning I see she is up to her usual helpful tactics of attacking the Republican governor of our state, Eric Holcomb.

State Superintendent casts doubt on Governor’s teacher pay plan

Teachers in Indiana get paid a little more than $50,000 per year, which is quite respectable in a low cost of living state like Indiana, especially since they get more than a quarter of the year off. Also since we are endlessly dumping more money into schools and getting diminishing results, one might ask if the solution is just throwing more money at it but apparently Jennifer McCormick is concerned more with padding the rolls of union members and filling teacher's union coffers than she is with being fiscally responsible.

Just on a lark, I checked the official twitter account for Ms. McCormick. As she uses the twitter user name "suptdrmccormick", this is pretty clearly intended to be an official account of an elected representative.

Who is the official account of "Republican" State Superintendent Jennifer McCormick following? Our Republican elected officials like GOP Governor Eric Holcomb? The chairman of the Indiana GOP, Kyle Hupfer? The Indiana state Republican party that made her the nominee in a deep red state, ensuring her this cushy job? Nope, none of those. Nor any recognizably conservative/Republican accounts at all.

But maybe she is trying to be non-partisan with her account, that would make sense right?

Nope. Here are a few of the accounts our "Republican" State Superintendent of Education is following with her official twitter account (I took these screenshots personally at around 8:30 AM on 1/16/2020) :

Remember, she is not following the Indiana Republican party. Nor the Indiana House Republicans or the Indiana State Senate Republicans. Odd that she follows the Democrats but not her own party. Maybe that is an anomaly.

Oh, the far left homosexual mayor of South Bend warrants a follow from our "Republican" leader. What about Republican President Donald Trump? Hmm, nope. What about Republican and fellow Hoosier Vice-President Mike Pence? Also nope. Weird. Then there is this....

She follows the liberal Democrat governor of Pennsylvania but not the Republican governor of her own state. She also follows....

I had to look her up, but Jacqueline Coleman is the Democrat Lt. Governor of Kentucky.

Our own Governor in Indiana, Eric Holcomb, and our Republican Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch don't warrant follows from our "Republican" State Superintendent of Public Education Jennifer McCormick. Again, as far as I can tell Jennifer McCormick follows a bunch of Democrats but not a single recognizable Republican at the Indiana state or the Federal level. Social media follows are not the sum total of a person but when you follow nothing but Democrats while claiming to be a Republican, it makes me suspicious that when she steps into the voting booth the only Republican that gets her vote is herself.

Why, if I didn't know better I might think that McCormick is just a Democrat who ran as a Republican because she knew that was the ticket to getting elected to state-wide office in Indiana.

With "Republicans" like Jennifer McCormick, who needs Democrats anyway?

And We're Off!

Only two weeks into the new year and our cities are just as violent as last year!

In Baltimore!

Baltimore sees 12 people shot, 5 dead in just 1 day of shootings

In Philadelphia!

3 dead, 7 injured — including a toddler — in 8 Philly shootings

In Chicago! On a Tuesday!

6 shot Tuesday in Chicago

For the year, Chicago is already at 13 murders....

Homicides in Chicago: A list of every victim

That works out to .92 homicides per day, and it is January when shootings are usually down. That works out to around 339 homicides this year if the pace continues. There appears to be a woman murdered last night but it isn't on the list yet. Of those murdered 9 were black and 4 were Hispanic.

Even in sleepy Fort Wayne we have already had homicides this year and two juveniles have been shot in separate incidents while in their home, a 13 year old and an 8 year old.

Meanwhile the real threat in America are rural Americans who have a semi-automatic rifle capable of using a 30 round magazine.

The Commies Among Us

A quick follow-up to last night's post about Kyle Jurek, the Bernie Sanders staffer who was praising the gulag system, conflating Trump voters with Nazis and promising political violence.

One of the things I assume about Mr. Jurek is that, in spite of panicked coping from the Bernie-bros on social media, what he was saying was not outside of the ordinary in those circles. In other words, if what he was saying was not commonly understood and accepted in the "Democratic Socialist" movement, he never would have been a paid staffer in the critical battleground state of Iowa.

For example. If I go to a gun range and chat with the boys about how much I despise the government, I will get lots of attaboys and pats on the back. If I start taking about how the Nazi concentration camps weren't all that bad and muse about attacking cops, I will be out the door in a heartbeat and it will be clear I should never come back. If I am lucky I won't get my ass beat. But this guy starts venting stuff about gulags and re-education camps and burning down cities and "punching Nazis" (and that Jurek guy has never punched anyone, at least not in a fair fight), like it is a conversation he has had many times before. So his rhetoric cannot be unusual or verboten in Bernie-bro circles. Not every Bernie-bro is fapping to mental images of themselves smiting Nazis but maybe half of them certainly are. Kyle even bragged on video that there are lots of people like him in the Sanders camp.

An "anarchist" pining for a totalitarian dictatorship. That only makes sense to people who worship a millionaire "socialist" like Bernie.

Meanwhile, we are less than a month away from the Iowa caucuses and Bernie is in a solid second place behind Biden, 18% to 24%, in the latest polling. In a different recent poll, Sanders was actually in a significant lead over Biden, 20% to 15%. Peter Buttpirate is an inexplicable 17% and Amy Klobuchar is at 8%. Seriously? How many average, midly politically aware Americans would recognize her name or her photo. I do but I am hyper-engaged, but 8%? Who the hell is her core constituency, white soccer moms who don't want to vote for Warren? Meanwhile Sanders is at 22% in New Hampshire, 18% (only 1% behind Biden) in Nevada and 18% in North Carolina but in California Bernie Sanders is in first place in the polls with 27% to Biden's 24% and California's primary is on Super Tuesday, only a month after Iowa. I believe this is the earliest California has voted in a primary so rather than being an after-thought, California's almost 500 delegates will be significant in choosing the Democrat nominee.

What does that mean? We are finally close enough to the primaries for people to start paying attention. Bernie Sanders is picking up some momentum as Democrats realize they are about to nominate a senile man deep in early stage dementia to run against Trump, and that by the time the general election debates roll around the stress of the campaign trail might push Gropin' Joe over the edge. Elizabeth Warren is fading and she and Bernie are getting testy with each other, including a widely discussed snub by Warren of Sander's offer of a handshake after last night's debate. If Warren's supporters realize she is not viable, they might coalesce behind Sanders (perhaps with assurances of Warren as Sander's VP) and that could mean either Bernie getting the nomination outright or a contested convention (or better yet, a third party run by Bernie that torpedoes Biden). So a man supported by people who think political violence is just peachy could be poised to be the nominee for the Democrats.

People like Kyle Jurek live in an echo chamber where their own radical ideology is reinforced and spun up to new levels on a daily basis. They are constantly told that Trump is a totalitarian dictator that they inexplicable are free to criticize in the harshest terms daily with no repercussions and that Trump supporters are at least as bad as "Nazis", not the historical Nazis from the 1930s/1940s but the cartoonish villains from popular culture. They aren't smart people but they are fanatical and that means the potential for political violence in 2020 is ratcheting up. If Biden had staved off dementia for a year, he would be running away with the nomination and people like Jurek would be depressed but with a few weeks until the Iowa caucuses, they are instead emboldened.

There is a decent chance of an internal civil war within the Democrats turning into internecine violence. That might spill over into the general population. The Kyle Jurek's in this country have been propagandized by the mass media and "education" system for decades and now they are about to be turned loose on the American political scene. Ironically Trump's only hope for winning in 2020 might come down to open warfare among the political Left. It will be amusing to see people like Jurek lose their minds when they inadvertently help re-elect The Devil. It will stop be amusing when the chaos slips the leash and turns into widespread political violence. The uncomfortable truth in American politics right now is that while we have been fear-mongered for years about the non-existent danger of "fascism" and "white supremacy", the truth is that we have millions of radical Leftists in this nation itching for the chance to assault cops, Trump supporters and just normal people that don't share their enthusiasm for the "revolution".

How long until the pot boils over?

You Can't Negotiate With Or Appease These People

In a bit of "breaking but not shocking" news, Project Veritas today released videos of a Bernie Sander campaign staffer, one Kyle Jurek, saying some rather interesting things. Full disclosure, I didn't watch the whole video yet so I am lifting these quotes from other news sources that did. Here is a sample:

- Speaking of whether Trump voters, all 62 million of them, can be "fixed":

"After the Nazi party fell ... Germany had to spend billions of dollars re-educating their people to not be Nazis. We're probably going to have to do the same thing here."

- Gulags weren't that bad, you got conjugal visits (assuming you weren't dead)!

"There's a reason Joseph Stalin had gulags, right? And actually, gulags were a lot better than what the CIA has told us that they were. People were actually paid a living wage in gulags, they had conjugal visits in gulags — gulags were actually meant for, like, re-education."

The Left is eagerly expecting mass political violence if Bernie isn't nominated by the Dems in Milwaukee:

"If Bernie doesn't get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC Convention, Milwaukee will burn. It'll start in Milwaukee and then when the police push back on that, other cities will just [makes explosion sound and gesture]."

"Be ready to be in Milwaukee for the DNC Convention. We're going to make 1978 [sic] look like a girl scouts cookout. The cops are going to be the ones that are getting beaten in Milwaukee."

Remember that Trump voters are Nazis? Well, the only way to deal with "Nazis" is violence:

"The only thing that works, the only thing that fascists understand, is violence. So, the only way you can confront them is with violence."

If you aren't on board with "Democratic Socialism"? They plan on killing you.

"If you want to fight against the revolution, you're going to die for it."

Kyle is a paid staffer for the Bernie campaign, not just some random Bernie-Bro. Also, you don't say stuff like this out of the blue, these are the kind of conversations these people are having. Get a couple of drinks in a Bernie supporter, stroke their ego a bit and watch their inner Genrikh Yagoda and Lazar Kaganovich come out.

This goes way beyond banning 30 round magazines and "free college". This is a re-envisioning of Maoist Communism. These people think that tens of millions of anti-revolutionary peasants in China was a good start and that the Ukrainian kulaks had it coming when Stalin ordered them starved to death in the Holodomor. You can't negotiate with them or reason with them. Their is no middle ground with them, no peaceful co-existence.

They Want You Dead

This is what we are facing and right now our commitment is a pale shadow of the Left. Oh no, we can't stand up for ourselves in public, we might get in trouble! I might lose my job and health care! Better just let them win again! I'll just mutter threats anonymously from my social media account with 200 followers.

Keep ceding them ground and they will bury you in a mass grave and sleep like a baby that night.

Here is the relevant video. Watch this and share it with your friends. Communism can only come over our dead bodies and they see that as a feature, not a bug.

Mass Shooting Alert!

Time Magazine, which apparently is still a thing, reported on a mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado. A total of five people, three juveniles and two adults, were wounded. Why is Time Magazine of all places reporting on this? Aurora, Colorado was the location of the 2012 theater shooting when James Eagan Holmes started shooting during a showing of The Dark Knight Rises resulting in 12 deaths and 70 more wounded. This shooting sparked fears of a copycat at the showing of the new Joker movie. It would seem that this shooting is noteworthy because it happened in the same city even though it apparently bears no other similarity to the more famous case.

Missing from the Time story? This little tidbit from the Aurora police:

B/M is short for "Black, male". There is a pretty solid probability that the victims were also black. If Time was concerned with the shooting getting solved, you might think they would include the very limited description of a black man of indeterminate age wearing a hoodie. Then again, that wouldn't advance the narrative. So the story is just a way to remind people of a 7 year old shooting involving the very rare young white male shooter, and ignores completely that this shooting is like the vast majority of shootings (mass or otherwise) in American, committed by a black man.

The media is your enemy.
