Blinding speed

It took 14 months to go from “Fourteen days to Flatten the Curve” to the government going door to door demanding to see your papers. If someone in July of 2019 had told you that all of this was going to happen within the next two years, what would you have said to them?

Secret Police

Nancy Pelosi announced that the Capitol Police will be setting up a field office in Tampa whose purpose is to “protect Congress.” I don’t see where Congress gets the authority to police the states. Anyone see that in the Constitution anywhere? Chief Yogananda is happy about the power, money, and prestige that comes with being able to hunt down Pelosi’s political opponents.

Sundance over at Conservative Treehouse sees it like I do– this is an ominous sign that portions of the Federal government are making a power grab. This is something to be concerned about:

I will say it again…. stop and hear the drums… Something is about to happen; federal agencies are acting in a very proactive manner. This shift by Nancy Pelosi is yet another advance move in preparation for, or in defense of, something they are planning for. Either they are doing something; fearful of us discovering something; or they are preparing for us to react to something and they are pre-positioning assets to defend against it. They are all-in and it shows.


Incidentally, I would bet you that the satellite offices are located somewhere near the US Attorney’s office, found here. Odd coincidence that it is across the street from “Gaslight Park.”

Not a Fig Leaf

According to the New York Times, the American Revolution was “less as a glorious liberty struggle than as a hyper-violent civil war that divided virtually every segment of colonial society against itself, and left many African Americans and Native Americans worse off, and less free.”

Of course it was a violent civil war. Most wars ARE violent. The British Empire was the most powerful military in the world. England had acquired territory all over the world through conquest and they weren’t nice about it. As ugly as you think American history was, British history was even worse.

The indigenous people in the areas colonized by the British were treated little better than cattle. The modus operandi was to capture some of the natives, give them some military training, then place them under the command of British officers and use them to control the remainder of the local population.

The wars that resulted were horrific. The American Revolution was no different. The homes of tax collectors were burned to the ground. Politicians were tarred and feathered. There was much cruelty and a lot of killing on both sides.

The concept that had existed for hundreds of years was that royalty owned the land, along with everything and everyone who lived upon it. Then along came Thomas Paine. Now Paine was not as popular at the time as he should have been, but he made a great impression on the Founding Fathers with his treatise Common Sense, published on February 4, 1776. (pdf warning)

In Common Sense, he declared and proposed that “in America the
law is king. For as in absolute governments the king is law, so in
free countries the law ought to be king; and there ought to be no
other. But lest any ill use should afterwards arise, let the crown at
the conclusion of the ceremony be demolished, and scattered
among the people whose right it is.”

Paine himself was greatly influenced by John Locke, who himself rejected the divine right of kings to rule. He believed that all humans when born live in their natural state- free to do as they please. In this “state of nature,” humans are entirely free. But this freedom is not a state of complete license, because it is set within the bounds of the law of nature. It is a state of equality, which is itself a central element of Locke’s account. According to this philosphy, there is no natural hierarchy among humans. Each person is naturally free and equal under the law of nature, subject only to the will of their creator.

Each person, moreover, is required to enforce as well as to obey this law. It is this duty that gives to humans the right to punish offenders. But in such a state of nature, it is obvious that placing the right to punish in each person’s hands may lead to injustice and violence. This can be remedied if humans enter into a contract with each other to recognize by common consent a civil government with the power to enforce the law of nature among the citizens of that state. Although any contract is legitimate as long as it does not infringe upon the law of nature, it often happens that a contract can be enforced only if there is some higher human authority to require compliance with it. It is a primary function of society to set up the framework in which legitimate contracts, freely entered into, may be enforced, a state of affairs much more difficult to guarantee in the state of nature and outside civil society.

As you can see, this idea is the central core that the Declaration of Independence was based upon:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Locke also thought that property was important to the natural state. Each person, according to Locke, has property in his own person—that is, each person literally owns his own body. Other people may not use a person’s body for any purpose without his permission. But one can acquire property beyond one’s own body through labor. By mixing one’s labor with objects in the world, one acquires a right to the fruits of that work. If one’s labor turns a barren field into crops or a pile of wood into a house, then the valuable product of that labor, the crops or the house, becomes one’s property.

For this reason, the communists HATE Locke with a burning passion. Communism says that each person’s labor belongs to everyone. This means that people have no rights to their own body, their labor, and therefore no right to the fruits of that labor. Instead, you and everything you produce are community property. So they are trying to rewrite history to discredit him. We have always been at war with Eastasia.

So you can see that the authors of our founding documents were not in favor of slavery. However, since slavery had been a part of the British past for several hundred years, they also knew that a new nation would never receive support from those whose livelihoods depended on slavery. The new nation would be dead before it even began. Even Foote realized this when he said:

a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial
appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in
defence of custom. But tumult soon subsides. Time makes more
converts than reason.

As a compromise, slavery would have to remain for the time being.

The fact that the US didn’t have a ideologically pure beginning doesn’t invalidate any of the ideas that it was based upon, nor does it mean that the entire nation should be dismantled, nor is the declaration “a philosophical fig leaf hung over a grubby battle to defend white liberty grounded in slavery and Native dispossession” as the New York Times asserts that it is. (They even warped the quote “a Republic, if you can keep it” quote.

So as we enter the early stages of the collapse and latest version of American civil war, remember the foundations of the First American Civil war and hope that whatever the results, at least one nation that values the natural rights of man survives.

Nukes are useless

Joe Biden today said that US citizens can’t use AR15s to resist the power of his government because they’d need F-15s & nukes to take on the government.

I know how we can get some- just look on the Internet, where the geniuses of the US Air Force have posted the information needed to steal them.

All kidding aside- what the President is saying is that he is going to use nukes on US citizens on US soil. I cannot ever remember any sitting US President threatening to use nuclear weapons against his own country. So, to you on the left who are apparently feeling like you are experts in military conflict: Explain exactly how nuclear weapons would help the US government win a war against its own citizens. Will you drop one on Chicago? Your own farmland?

What about those F15s? What can an F15 do against a citizen militia? In case you didn’t know- the F15 is a fighter aircraft, completely useless against anything but other aircraft. Now I know that you idiots think that the F15 is somehow a magic talisman, even to the point of trying to use one to intimidate protesters, but it won’t work.

Let me explain to you how such a conflict would work:

You call out the troops, and they show up with tanks and every heavy weapon they can find. The militia disappears, blending into the populace. Then, while this massive army is in the field, the citizens showed up at the factory that made some indispensable widget required for your tanks to work, and killed half of the assembly line workers.

So half the army now has to be posted at the factory. The next time, the citizens show up at the houses of the families of those troops. Now they all have to be moved onto secure bases.

Then what? A soldier goes out on the town for a bit R&R then disappears.

Wars like that get ugly. I think that at this point, such a conflict appears unavoidable.

Brown Shirts

A huge investigation carried out by the FBI and other Federal law enforcement into the Capitol incident of January 6 has so far netted 465 arrests with an additional 250 people wanted for various charges. The only death connected to the event was an unarmed woman killed by a police officer.

Contrast that to last summer’s violence where over a hundred deaths and BILLIONS of dollars in damages were directly caused by rioters who established entire areas that were claimed to be “autonomous zones” existing outside of government authority. Those protests saw nearly all of the charges being dropped.

The organization err idea that caused mush of the damage and violence continues to harass and attack American citizens, in some cases with the active support and cooperation of law enforcement.

Why is all of this happening? Because getting the people to overthrow local authority is how China did it.

False Flag

To go along with my previous post on how the Biden administration is trying to silence the opposition, the Washington Post came out swinging today.

Their article is misleading. They are attacking Tucker Carlson for claiming that the January 6th events at the Capitol were engineered by the FBI. They set up a strawman to attack:

The sketchy and quickly debunked claims made by Carlson. The Fox News host was elevating a story written for the website Revolver by a former Trump administration official (later fired for links to white nationalists) arguing that “unindicted co-conspirators” referred to in Justice Department charging documents referred to government law enforcement agents. In other words, that the references implied a significant intertwining of FBI agents in the violence that day. But, as The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake reported, that term wouldn’t apply to FBI agents, and the “co-conspirators” identified by Carlson were at times clearly identifiable. One, for example, was obviously a suspect’s wife, based on the available information. Marrying someone for a long-game sting operation would be quite a level of commitment.

Debunked my ass. The FBI engineered it, but not by using actual agents. No, they did it by using FBI informants. I pointed this out way back in January. Even Reuters reported that the leader of the Proud Boys was an FBI informant.

In the Miami hearing, a federal prosecutor, a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and Tarrio’s [Tarrio is the leader of the Proud Boys- DM] own lawyer described his undercover work and said he had helped authorities prosecute more than a dozen people in various cases involving drugs, gambling and human smuggling.

In a statement to Reuters, the former federal prosecutor in Tarrio’s case, Vanessa Singh Johannes, confirmed that “he cooperated with local and federal law enforcement, to aid in the prosecution of those running other, separate criminal enterprises, ranging from running marijuana grow houses in Miami to operating pharmaceutical fraud schemes

So the Washington Post either has a short memory, or they are deliberately lying.

We know the FBI can and will do so. Remember how Sandy Hook resulted in a 1500 page report from the FBI, but the Las Vegas shooter report was only three pages?
