Crenshaw

Make up your own mind as to how you react to a Republican congressman saying that other Republicans are terrorists because they won’t install McCarthy as speaker.

If you don’t want to get into the Octagon and get punched in the face and don’t get into the Octagon, that’s how I feel about it. I mean, this is because there’s no good faith here. The good faith has been lost. We keep talking about good faith. And then they want to play victim. No. No. So now I’m not going to apologize for harsh language. You guys know me. That’s how I am. I speak boldly. You know, and this is this is. This is terrorism tactics.

Show Trials

Elon Musk and Donald Trump are likely not on the side of freedom, but both have committed the same crime: being counterrevolutionary. For that, they must and will be destroyed.

Musk’s allowing free speech on Twitter cannot be permitted to stand, the left will destroy him. He will be removed from Twitter’s chair, or investors and the government will destroy all of his businesses.

For similar reasons, Trump will be prosecuted. As I have said for two years, Trump needs to flee. They won’t stop until he is in prison or dead.

It’s the next step in color revolutions per the CIA insurgency manual- counter revolutionaries must be eliminated.

If a man worth $200 billion cam be brought down, what chance does any of us have? We now know that the Intelligence Community has overthrown the legitimate government and seized power, using Biden as the front man. This is the most dangerous time in US history.

I Don’t Care

So there is a lot of noise being made this morning about Musk banning certain reporters from Twitter. The claim is that Musk is a hypocrite because he claims to support free speech. Keep in mind that the bans are being done because multiple reporters have been tweeting out the location of Musk’s family, and the direct result of this was an attempt on Musk’s child’s life. Any parent would be pissed.

This is how the left operates. They have a bunch of public faces who don’t directly engage in violence, but who actively support violent acts. We see this as Antifa hiding within crowds of protesters. They are free to act as violent as they want, while other parties stand there and wait for a violent response from their target, so they can release carefully edited video making the counter attacking victims appear to be the ones who initiated the violence.

The opening shots of the war have been fired. There are already hundreds of casualties, and hundreds more being held as political prisoners. The left only claims principles like free speech matter when they can use that principle to attack those with whom they disagree. They couldn’t care one hairy rat’s ass about free speech. Let me illustrate. This reporter was mobbed and beaten while covering a drag queen story hour, her phone was stolen.

She tried to get another reporter to call 911. He refused while the protesters taunted her:

The answers to that on Twitter illustrate why there will be no care from me about hypocrisy. At this point, it is war. We need to win, and that is all that matters, because if we don’t, the other side won’t give on whit about your rights, about what is fair, or about anything else.

Fuck em, that’s why. Elon- ban away.

Also, please note that the entire Interstate 5 corridor from the Canadian border south to Eugene, Oregon (including all of Washington State) is an active combat zone. There have been more than a dozen documented fatalities in this area that are directly related to insurgent activity. Government authority has either effectively or openly sided with the insurgents and is providing them with active support. Anyone in these areas is advised that violence is occurring and will continue to occur in these areas, and for this reason the area should be avoided. Use of force in self defense will result in arrest. These areas are completely out of legitimate governmental control and can best be described as being behind enemy lines.

Vindication

In September of 2020, NPR accused Steve Bannon and Rudy Giuliani of colluding with the Russians and Rupert Murdoch to fake the Hunter Biden laptop story. That was followed just a few weeks later by NBC discrediting a story from March of 2020 that Hunter Biden was also involved with back door deals to sell access to then Vice-President Biden to foreign governments, including the Chinese.

During the Presidential debates that year, then candidate Biden accused President Trump of colluding with a foreign government, the Russians, to discredit him. The CIA and FBI backed Biden up on this, followed by CNN. It came to be that the discussion of the material was shut down by Twitter and Facebook, which effectively banned the story from public political discourse.

As a result of these accusations, Rudy Giuliani was disbarred by the New York Bar.

Not only does it appear that the entire story was true, but it also appears that the news media and social media companies were actively working at the behest of the FBI and the CIA to change the outcome of the 2020 election. These companies included the New York Post, NBC, CNN, CBS, Twitter, and Facebook. At this point, we can assume that the entire election was engineered and manipulated by government intelligence agencies, and so is social media. None of it can be trusted. It isn’t new that the press has put their thumb on the political scales. What is truly concerning is that branches of the government itself are consolidating power.

As I pointed out in December of 2020 over at Joe Huffman’s place, our nation was the target of a coup. A prominent blogger laughed it off and mocked me for it. It’s clear that this was indeed the case. So now the question rears its head: What do we do about it? What CAN we do about it?

Let’s hope that history has a happy ending in this case.

Falling Apart

Some J6 protesters pled guilty to trespassing in the Capitol for 30 minutes and got as much as 15 months in prison. The reasoning that the judge gave? “There is no mob without members of the mob.” Doesn’t the same reasoning hold up for the left? If you are a leftist and firebomb a police car, you get 15 months in prison.

Should you get caught filming a leftist who is in the process of committing violent felonies, that leftist has the right to commit strong armed robbery against you and steal your camera equipment. At least that is what the judge in the case had to say.

Now comes word that the Republicans are adopting the same tactics of ballot harvesting and ballot box stuffing used by the Democrats. This is anything but good news. Now that it is out in the open that elections are nothing but a game that all sides are cheating, the elections and our government have less and less legitimacy every day.

Our legal system, our government, our very nation is based upon the idea that its citizens know believe that things are just and fair. As soon as the citizens no longer believe that, the entire society will collapse.

Buy ammo, lay in supplies, trade goods, and precious metals. I have a feeling that you are going to need them.

Gas tax

During October, gas prices in Florida were 25 cents lower, thanks to a “tax holiday” signed by Governor DeSantis. That tax expires this morning. I’m sure the headlines from the MSM will be how it is DeSantis’ fault that Florida gas prices just went up by 25 cents a gallon.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden is slamming oil companies for making “record profits” while “price gouging” the American public.

Exxon Chevron made a combined profit of $29 billion for the second quarter for all sales of everything they sell, worldwide. During that same quarter, Americans used about 35 billion gallons of gasoline, meaning that the Federal government collected $7 billion in profits from the sales of gasoline. Then there are the taxes on other Exxon products: oil, natural gas, diesel, propane, and more. Who is making the record profits here?

Ronald Reagan summed it up nicely: Tax and spend.

Meanwhile, the US has less than a three week supply of diesel fuel, which is less than half of the normal amount. That doesn’t mean we won’t have any diesel in three weeks. What it means is that supply is short. That means that the law of supply and demand dictates a rise in diesel prices. Farmers rely on tractors, and our supply lines rely on trains and trucking, all of which depend on diesel. This will mean that the prices on everything will soon begin to climb. Right now, diesel stands at $5.25 a gallon in my area. Let’s see how that goes.

Worst Since 1969

This is the worst year in the US stock market since 1969. The S&P 500 is down 24% year-to-date, and the Bloomberg U.S. Aggregate Bond Index has surrendered about 16%.

The job market is actually much worse than the Government has let on, because they have been using larger than normal “seasonal adjustments” to hide the fact that the job market is worse than it actually is. Through the first nine months of the year, seasonal adjustment has boosted private payrolls by 851,000. That’s a half-million extra jobs compared to the average seasonal adjustment from 2013 to 2021. The gap is even higher over the past seven months, with this year’s seasonal adjustment providing an average boost of 539,000 more jobs than the average seasonal adjustment over the prior nine years. This is causing the numbers to appear far better than they are. For example, this year private-sector employment fell by 2.4 million jobs, but the Labor Department reported a gain of 492,000 private jobs after “seasonal adjustment.” A swing of nearly 3 million jobs.

The average price of gasoline in the US was $2.33 per gallon in January 2021. It hit a peak of $4.93 in June, but then Biden began artificially manipulating the price by releasing oil from the SPR. The price now stands at $3.70 per gallon, and more than half of our petroleum reserves are gone.

Inflation is running wild. That’s causing the IRS to have to increase the standard deduction and adjust ta brackets by far more than the previous few years. Social Security is increasing its payments by large amounts. The Biden administration is playing this as a good thing, but that has caused the Fed to massively increase interest rates.

In the past three weeks, our national debt has increased by a quarter of a trillion dollars.

Crime is up. For 2021, the number of murders reported in the U.S. rose by 4.3% since 2020, according to the FBI. 2020 itself was a record, with the murder rate rising by 29.4% from 2019 to 2020. 

But leading officials do not believe this is an accurate picture, since only 11,794 of 18,806 law enforcement agencies chose to submit expanded homicide data. With 52% of law enforcement agencies nationwide reporting, this means roughly 48% of law enforcement agencies across the country did not submit any data in 2021, leaving significant gaps in coverage. The FBI has concluded that participation for 2021 remained “below a statistically acceptable level to be nationally representative,” meaning that crime is likely even higher.

The CDC thinks that it is even worse. They think that US firearm homicide and suicide rates each increased by more than 8% from 2020 to 2021. CDC researchers estimated that there were over 20,000 firearm homicides and over 26,000 firearm suicides in the United States in 2021. This means that the US had more homicides than in any year in over 25 years.

Our border is not so much a sieve as it is simply wide open.

Name one thing that has improved in this country in the past 36 months.

Election Tampering

Don’t think for a second that this isn’t being done to influence elections:

The CNN reporter is trying to paint DeSantis as the bad guy because Lee county didn’t order mandatory evacuations until 24 hours before Ian made landfall. DeSantis is replying that everyone up to that point was calling for a Tampa landfall. This is what the cone looked like on Monday night. Note that Ft Meyers isn’t in the cone, and the NWS was calling for a Tampa landfall. Note also that Ft Meyers is only under a Tropical Storm warning (in blue) and not a hurricane warning (in red) :

The second point here is this: Why do people wait for the government to tell them to get out? Can’t people think for themselves? If you believe that a deadly storm is headed for your barrier island, why wait for someone else to tell you what to do?

This is our supposedly neutral press playing games in order to help Joe Biden, because DeSantis has been owning his wrinkled, senile ass for months and everyone believes that DeSantis is a real threat to his election chances in 2024.
