The Ancien Régime

From David Catron in The American Spectator yesterday. Do read it all.

The Mueller probe, with its indictments of Trump associates for offenses unrelated to its ostensible mandate, combined with mendacious media coverage of President Trump, is an obvious attempt to restore the old order that the electorate rejected in 2016. It seeks to annul the will of the voters and return us to the incipient authoritarianism that germinated during the Obama era, and which the ruling class expected to blossom under Clinton. The bureaucrats who support the restoration of Beltway despotism call themselves public servants, yet despise the public. The politicians who support it call themselves Democrats, yet despise democracy.

The most important fact to absorb about all this is counterintuitive: The primary target isn’t really the President. Mueller and his apologists know Trump is the voice of a nationwide rebellion against their authority, and realize that the threat can’t be neutralized until he is silenced. The end game is to crush what they see as a peasant’s revolt. Mueller’s function is to provide a legal pretext for removing the President from office. The role of the media is to misrepresent everything he does in order to trick independent voters into giving the Democrats a majority in the House. This will prevent Trump from continuing to act on his 2016 mandate.

You know this, I know this, Trump is in himself unimportant, what is important is what he is doing. The Old Order is fully aware that if they happened to remove Trump, they get Pence. But it would be a rather defenestrated Pence, as Gerald Ford was when he succeeded Nixon.

If the voters are crazy enough to give the Democrats a majority in the House, they will (for the third time) begin drawing up articles of impeachment. The most recent impeachment bill, introduced at the end of last year and voted on in January, received only 66 Democratic votes. Because it’s an election year and impeachment is not popular among the voters who are likely to show up in November, the rest of the Democrats stayed well away from the C-Span cameras. Those poltroons will quickly come out of the closet on November 7th if the midterms produce a Democratic majority in the House. As Roger Kimball points out in that other Spectator across the pond:

It is a foregone conclusion, at any rate, that should the Democrats take the House by more than a narrow margin, Donald Trump will be impeached. He would not, I am convinced, be convicted by the Senate, but the impeachment itself would be messy.

I’m pretty sure the voters are not that crazy, but I do worry that they are complacent and lazy. I dislike quoting Sean Hannity, but he is entirely right when he says that this is the most important mid-term election in our lifetimes. It’s easy to stay home, especially in November, for many of us it’s cold and sometimes snowy, much easier to stay by the fire. I’ve done it many times, too. Not this time, if I need the dog sledge, I’ll be there. Actually, in Nebraska, I’m not all that worried, although we throw up idiots like Sasse on occasion, but it is not a time to take chances.

Lose now, and we lose for a generation, and perhaps for all time.

All of which brings us back to the point of the collusion between Mueller, the Media, and the Democrats. They are out to get Trump only because they want to crush the populist revolt and restore the Ancien Régime. They have no respect for democracy and even less for the voters. They want to disenfranchise 63 million “deplorable” Trump supporters and go back to business as usual — fundamentally transforming the U.S. into a Venezuela. There’s only one way to stop these creeps from impeaching the President and ruining the country. Every Trump voter who came out in 2016 must to go to the polls on November 6 and drown the Democrats in a red wave.

He is exactly correct, we are winning, but if we fail to stay the course, we will lose, and so will America.

And, maybe if November brings a ‘Red Tide’ instead of a ‘Blue Wave’ a bit of the noise might get turned down to eleventy (at least). And if it doesn’t, I fear the chocks are out.

    You must defend the gains you have made so that the country can be restored to the principles that made it great. If the Democrats preserve their despotic system, the school system will continue to be a brainwashing machine ruining subsequent generations. It feels like Stalin with his control over the various organs of the Bolshevik party – that is how he won the struggle to succeed Lenin. The men in grey suits are the ones to fear.

    Dr. Thomas Ward speaks a bit of the Ancien Regime in his talk about Humanae Vitae:

    A small bit of presentation:

    Ward believes the first major attack on the family was launched during the outbreak of the French Revolution when, in 1789, the notorious Marquis de Sade, writer of pornographic novels, was freed from the Bastille prison.

    “[He] then became a revolutionary advocating the total uprooting of Christianity, claiming that blasphemy, theft, homicide, every type of sexual perversion, incest, rape and sodomy were revolutionary achievements which were only considered to be criminal deceptions by the [Catholic] Church,” Ward stated.

    The next attack on the family began in 1848 with the writing of The Communist Manifesto. In their most famous work, Marx and Engels advocated that the state wrest responsibility for the education of children from parents.

    “Communism was based on the abolition of the family and specifically targeted the abolition of the ‘hallowed’–their word, i.e. God-given–right of parents to be the primary educators of their children,” Ward wrote.

    When Marx’s ideas were put into practice in Russia, the leaders of the 1917 October Revolution hoped to replace the natural family “with a great universal socialist family.” Divorce was legalized in 1918, abortion in 1920, and homosexual acts in 1922.

    Some of Lenin’s pioneering sexual revolutionaries fell into disfavor under Stalin. One of the survivors, Georg Lukacs, fled to Germany where he helped to found the culturally revolutionary society known as the “Frankfurt School.” When it was closed down, its members joined the faculties of such leading American universities as Harvard, Columbia, Princeton, and Berkeley.

    “From these hub universities they successfully spread their ideology of world revolution using the vast commercial, media, and academic resources of the United States,” Ward explained.

    These Cultural Marxists sought to transform American society by using the Freudian concept of “pansexualism” to undermine the specific roles of the mother and father and traditional relationships between men and women.

    Ward wrote: “Faithful to Marx they strategically attacked the rights of parents when, as primary educators and protectors of their children they opposed the violation of innocence, modesty and chastity by school-based sexual and homosexual indoctrination.”

    An emphasis on birth control is a particular concern of those who wish “the parental state” to replace biological parents as the guides of children.

      The thing is – you have no refuge outside the US, so you must get it right. Britain has lost its mind and so has Canada. As Elrond says to Gandalf: “Our list of allies grows thin.”

        Nowhere to run. As Reagan put it all the way back in 1964:

        “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.”

        Yeah, how many years now since the USSR collapsed? Whenever the year was, what a feeling of euphoria I had (like better’n than 10mg Lortab after getting wisdom tooth pulled 🙂 ), after growing up with every substantial building having a bomb shelter sign on it where I lived. Like they be safe spaces. 🙂
        Back then, late ’80’s something, I thought, Ah,… world now at peace! Oh oops though, new threat ready to move into vacuum. Who’ll be next to move in next vacuum?

        Guess we’ll have to make do, whenever and wharever f’r presarvation. 🙂

    NEO, look in your trash file if you don’t mind. I did write a comment but think it may have gone to trash. You can release it if you have a mind to; just like you can be happy if you’ve a mind to.

    I never figured I’d ever get back to ‘tooning once Slick & Al was gone. But can’t help it now. 🙂
    And nothing new really yet, just modifications from previous.
    This probably only works down South though. Mid-term elections.
