Sunday Funnies; Liberate America

Interesting that some of my English friends, especially in the original rebel province, East Anglia, went out of their way to tell me how much they enjoyed yesterday’s video. Well, Norfolk is sort of a prototype for the great plains, and it always amuses me that we have many buildings here in Nebraska built to English specs. What’s that? No the control towers on many of our airports are of a Royal Air Force design, and the aircrew that trained there, well many of them went on to Norfolk, to help free Europe. Many are still in England and we’ll remember them this weekend.

Now that is a proper salad bar.

Hi Tina!

Sunday Funnies; Are We There Yet?

Farmer George is starting to sound rather reasonable, isn’t he?

Enemies; Foreign and Domestic

Somebody ( I think it was Tom Clancy in one of his novels, but I can’t find it) once said that every once in a while, the American people rise up on their hind legs and simply take control away from their governments. That’s what I’m seeing now, as the Lutheran reformation (Shelley, not Martin) sweeps across the country. The people have simply had enough of the bullshit house arrest, that has cost us trillions of dollars, millions of jobs, thousands of businesses, and untold stress.

We live in a country where the national media is a propaganda outlet of a hostile foreign government, the Chinese Communists, it’s puppet the World Health Organization, and the overarching globalist conspiracy, each of which has a negative view of the American people. Well, it’s damned well reciprocated. We know that the governor of New York, Nipsey Cuomo has perhaps caused the death of more Americans than anybody since John C. Calhoun, who at least believed in what he believed instead of only in fattening his pocketbook. We have seen others of the Gauleiters, in Michigan, in Kentucky, in Washington, and not least in California attempt to suppress the freedom of the American people. And we have seen the revival of the Stasi tactics of East Germany amongst our people.

And who are these collaborators/informers? Our neighbors and (former) friends. I don’t think we’re quite at the point the French were in 1945, when they stripped their collaborators naked, shaved their head, and paraded them at bayonet point through the streets of Paris, but neither are we that far from it.

And that is the status of the Chinese Bat flu. I don’t think Winnie the Pooh and all the American media can put it back together. We’ve won, but we’ve been badly hurt, so keep up the skeer.


The other day the President Tweeted a one-word message “OBAMAGATE!“.

And that is what we have, a fairly clear chain of evidence linking Obama, Biden, Clinton, and all their hacks and pawns with the illegal persecution and prosecution of Lieutenant General Flynn, in their apparent, and becoming more clear daily, attempt to subvert the will of the people by staging a coup on the duly elected President of the United States of America..

That too has been thwarted, it looks like, thanks to some very good men and women. Here is a recap from one of the best, Mollie Hemingway, from one of the best organizations in involved, The Federalist.

A clearer picture is emerging of the drastic steps that were taken to accomplish Obama’s goal in the following weeks and months. Shortly thereafter, high-level operatives began intensely leaking selective information supporting a supposed Russia-Trump conspiracy theory, the incoming National Security Advisor was ambushed, and the incoming Attorney General was forced to recuse himself from oversight of investigations of President Trump. At each major point in the operation, explosive media leaks were a key strategy in the operation to take down Trump.

Not only was information on Russia not fully shared with the incoming Trump team, as Obama directs, the leaks and ambushes made the transition chaotic, scared quality individuals away from working in the administration, made effective governance almost impossible, and materially damaged national security. When Comey was finally fired on May 9, in part for his duplicitousness regarding his handling of the Russia collusion theory, he orchestrated the launch of a Special Counsel probe that continued his efforts for another two years. That probe ended with Mueller finding no evidence of any American colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election, much less Trump or anyone connected to him.

I’m sure we will be talking more about this in the days to come. As they say, “Summer is coming”, and its an election year.

American Rights, the Battle Continues

Shelley Luther
A Rosa Parks for our time

Ok, there’s a lot we haven’t talked about this, and yes, it’s deliberate. Like most of you, I’m deathly sick of house arrest. But the old Americanism is breaking out, as it always does when our liberty is threatened. Here’s what happened when an ex-marine talked ethics and patriotism to a police line. Watch the whole thing.

Did you watch to the end, where that line of riot police shuffled off?

And that’s the thing, the average police officer has all the troubles we all do, he’s mostly just trying to do his job. His superiors are a different story, though. It is unconscionable to give those orders.

Colonel Schlichter over at Townhall has something to say about this the other day as well.

As conservatives, we pride ourselves on our unwavering support of the Thin Blue Line, on backing our cops against leftist slander, and yet stupid and evil people in law enforcement are putting that default thumbs-up from normal Americans at risk. It’s bad enough when we watch the ridiculous spectacle of Deputy Karren and Deputy Man-Karen yelling at some mom for committing felony play-dating, but then we see how the FBI has flat-out framed political enemies and it’s too much. If the LEO community does not police its own ranks and stamp out this nonsense, it might as well take all the goodwill it has earned over the years, douse it in cheap gasoline, and set it on fire. […]

Here’s the thing – we normals respect our police not merely because they have badges and funny hats but because they take personal risks to protect us from those who would violate our rights. Usually, these violators are criminals. But the category of “People who violate our rights” also includes political hacks and bureaucratic petty fascists. And we reasonably expect to be protected from those creeps too.

“But we might get suspended or fired!” is the response. Well, yeah. That’s correct. And that’s immaterial.

He’s right, if you can’t stand the heat get the F out of the kitchen. Our nerves are plenty frayed worrying about all sorts of things, like feeding our kids and keep them safe. You really do not want the normals thinking that to keep our kids safe we have to keep them away from you. Or do you?

It’s like soldiers – the troops don’t get thanked for their service because their job is kick-back and safe.

So, we can surely expect them to pushback when some tool with sergeant’s stripes or chief stars tells them to oppress us.

For those LEOs who are confused:

When someone tells you to tackle people for misdemeanor failure to social distance, we expect you to say “No.”

When someone tells you to fly drones around scolding citizens, we expect you to say “No.”

When someone tells you to walk through a church parking lot taking down plate numbers, we expect you to say “No.”

When someone tells you to roll the SWAT team, with a complete with a Keystone Kop sniper up top, to confront the peril of a bunch of people protesting to reopen business, we expect you to say “No.”

When someone tells you to hassle Jews for praying, we expect you to say “No.”

We’ve seen all these things happen or be threatened since the bat stew virus infected the Bill of Rights, perhaps fatally. And these atrocities have to stop.

And they are going to stop. The question to you is, “Will you side with corrupt bureaucrats like the German Polezei did in the 1930s, or will you side with the American people and our God-given constitutional rights. Up to you, I’ve gotten to the point that I don’t much care. All I really care about is the restoration of eroded American rights. You can pick your side as you choose. But I’ll tell you something from experience, there are a hell of a lot of things worse than getting fired. One of them is living with yourself after you’ve ruined somebody’s life, or even killed them, for no reason, really, at all.

Many won’t play stupid games and they simply blow off dumb orders. I’ve witnessed police officers ignore all manner of Karen crimes, as they should. Bravo! We’ve seen a number of sheriffs stand up and refuse to enforce illegal and immoral orders from political hacks. Three cheers!

But then there are the Barney Fifes who, instead of saying “Hard pass” when ordered to dragging off some tattoo artist, comply instead. And that’s how we got a viral vid of two tubby constables hauling a guy to the pokey for trying to feed his family. Is that what LEOs signed up for? If so, we’re in trouble.

How would you feel if you were the guy or gal that wrote the citation that brought Shelley Luther into that courtroom to be abused by an Obama hack judge so badly that both of your Senators, and the Governor, as well as the state Attorney General called him out, while the Lt. Governor paid her fine, and the State Supreme Court ordered her release. By the way, she now has a new customer, Senator Cruz stopped in for a well-publicized haircut yesterday. All that to feed her kids, and help her employees feed theirs. Nice job, Bozo, you managed to create another Rosa Parks.

Feeling proud? If you are, well all I’ll say is you’re a scumbag and a disgrace to your uniform, and your country.

Credulous Cowards

Steve McCann has an article up at American Thinker that goes to the heart of the Chinese flu problem, which as any thinking person has figured out is not the Chinese flu but the American ruling class’ reaction to it.

An immutable tenet of today’s ruling class is that if someone or an institution within their power base is labeled as “experts,” then these authorities are not to be questioned and their assumptions, predictions or projections must be treated as gospel. The century that followed the rise of the Wilsonian progressives, who idolized a powerful government run by educated experts, saw enormous scientific, medical, and industrial achievements the hands of experts, the products of higher education. The professional class, usually products of higher education, grants deference to certified experts, and the media makes celebrities out of those experts that support important goals of the ruling class. Experts have had a very good century.

Isn’t that the truth? In America, and indeed around the world, we have seen the so-called elites first denigrating the crisis, and then after a few experts put out bogus papers (specifically the one from Imperial College was never peer-reviewed or published, although these days that’s no guarantee either) to scare the populations into line. It worked, although the debunking started almost immediately, not least because it let a bunch of petty tyrants take a shot at abrogating the Constitution. And so the elite saw it as advantageous, even at the cost of a new Great Depression.

While the American public has long been suspicious of Chinese influence in America, the coronavirus pandemic has exposed for all to see the extent of this nation’s reliance on a global adversary for necessities such as medical and pharmaceutical products. And that the single-minded pursuit of wealth and power prompted the American ruling class to proclaim over the years that it was a great benefit for the United States to empower China.

China owes its faster than expected rise as a world power to the transfer of American jobs, technology, capital, and business acumen to China so that US shareholders could receive capital gains, US executives could receive incentive pay for producing consumer products at a much lower labor cost, and the nation’s elites could, using riches from Chinese investments in the US, consolidate their retention of power.

Apparently, the American ruling class could not comprehend that if US corporations produce the goods they market to Americans offshore, it is the offshore countries that benefit the most from the economic activity. If that location is an authoritarian regime bent on world domination, then they will use their newfound wealth to build up their military, exploit and suppress their citizenry, promote manufacturing dependence, and corrupt the governing classes of their potential adversaries.

As near as I can tell, the American ruling class is rather stupid, thinking 1) that they are invulnerable to the effects of blowing up the economy. (Pro-tip: They aren’t.) and 2) Thinking the rest of us are so stupid that we won’t notice their seditious and in fact, bordering on downright treasonous activities. And yes, while I’m looking at all of them, in both parties, since at least George HW Bush or really Henry Kissinger, I’m especially looking at Diane Feinstein as an excellent example, but only an example.

Not for nothing did Alexis de Tocqueville tell us:

We can state with conviction, therefore, that a man’s support for absolute government is in direct proportion to the contempt he feels for his country.

Imbecilic

So, from PowerLine, this is apparently what Andy Cuomo thinks: Andrew Cuomo has a message for angry citizens who can’t pay their bills during the coronavirus pandemic: “You want to go to work? Go take a job as an essential worker.”

The Democrat fielded questions Wednesday while angry protesters outside expressed their displeasure with ongoing shutdown policies. A reporter said she spoke to many of the protesters and found them to be “regular people who are not getting a paycheck.”
***
Mr. Cuomo’s response suggested that government-imposed shutdowns might exist as long as a single person was at risk of dying from the contagion.

“The illness is death,” he said. “What is worse than death? Economic hardship? Yes, very bad. Not death. Emotional stress from being locked in a house — very bad. Not death. Domestic violence on the increase — very bad. Not death.”

As John notes that is not the question. The question is how many million people should one put into the despair (and its real-world consequences) to save one life.

Mr. Cuomo was then asked if a fundamental right to work exists if “the government can’t get [citizens] the money” they need in a timely manner.

“You want to go to work?” Mr. Cuomo replied. “Go take a job as an essential worker.”

John notes:

It turns out that there are a lot of “essential” workers, beyond those who are obviously needed, like truck drivers and checkout people at grocery stores. Pretty much every public employee appears to be “essential,” although most would question that characterization.

Here is a good example: the University of Minnesota Medical School is advertising for a Vice Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. The treacly job description seems like a message in a bottle from a former age. But it isn’t; the money is on offer as we speak. And when I say money, I’m not kidding: the salary range for this position is $392,000 to $400,000 annually:

John doesn’t note, but I do the sheer arrogance dripping from that idiot piehole. Personally, I think he needs to put his overblown ego in a box, wrap it in barb wire, set it afire, and shove it up his backside. His handling of this indicates that like the mayor of New York, he couldn’t organize a piss-up in a brewery, and yet they think they are qualified to rule us. He comes off as both arrogant and stupid, kind of like his brother who gave his wife and son bat soup flu. They’re not fit to polish any random truck driver’s boots.

If this bullshit emergency has shown us nothing else, it has shown us who’s ego and sense of entitlement make their employment in a position of trust by the people of America an existential threat to freedom. There are a lot of them around, most are Democrats. I’ve been quietly saying for a while this year.

You can vote Democrat

or

You can vote for America

Your choice
