Strange days in America, and around the world.
The COVID-19, AKA Chicom, virus continues to provoke insanity on the part of global "leaders," or, perhaps better said, greedy opportunism: a chance to increase their already vast powers over "We the People." In Europe, the western part, anyhow, governments head for yet more brutal shutdowns of their economies and of normal life, and of an almost unimaginable destruction of Western democratic norms allegedly to "defeat" a contagious but relatively very mild virus. Even in a place which I had assumed a repository of common sense, Australia, we see power-mad state governments unleashing police forces on peaceful citizens trying to live their lives.
Here at home, we see the same: governors declaring nonsensical curfews, demanding people cancel traditional holiday celebrations at home, and insisting nay ordering that they wear masks, of unproven utility, even while at those homes. They seek to use police to enforce these measures--measures based on no science, just on a lust for power and a hatred for tradition. These totalitarian madmen, of course, get the support of the mass media, legacy and new, who seek to make us all fearful and begging for more government "help."
A couple of encouraging signs, in an otherwise bleak landscape, are the indications of a growing popular rebellion: we, for example, see curfew-busting protest rallies in southern California--the heart of the woke beast--a lengthening list of sheriffs and police chiefs who refuse to enforce governors' illegal and unconstitutional edicts. Let's pray for and actively support such acts of revolt.
Here in what the late great French philosopher Raymond Aron called the Imperial Republic, a country once also proudly known as the UNITED States, we continue a furious battle to prevent the theft of our national elections--a heist on a scale never before seen in our nearly one-quarter of a millennium of history as an independent state. No intellectually honest person can dispute that Trump won the election, and did so overwhelmingly. The losers, a vast criminal organization known as the Democrat Party, have undertaken a breathtakingly brazen effort to steal that election and give the White House over to a gaga old fool, as corrupt as the day is long.
That old fool, of course, would not, in fact, serve as president; he would act as the Trojan horse for a 1930s-style Hitlerite coalition of wealthy industrialists and milling mobs of thugs.
Yes, there, I used the "H" word. I know, I know.
In this case, however, it seems highly appropriate to invoke the memory of that old and unlamented socialist, aka Nazi. The parallels, while not perfect, of course, appear striking. We have Biden playing the role of gaga Von Hindenburg, totally and cruelly unaware of what's happening around him, while real power would go to an another unscrupulous and power-mad "H," Harris, supported by the corrupt public sector unions, the lying mass media, and gangs of street thugs--all given social and legal cover by deranged educational, and thoroughly infiltrated law enforcement and security organizations. They emit calls for "lists" of Trump supporters, advocate banning them from the public square, undermining their employment possibilities, re-educating the miscreants, and, of course, annihilating our history and proud traditions.
I don't know if Trump and his allies can pull off this defense of America. If they do, it will prove one of the most amazing feats of political maneuvering in history--but, what comes next? What about 2022? 2024? And, so forth? If Trump perseveres, we will need the most fundamental cleansing of key institutions in our history. For starters, disband the FBI, the CIA, the State Department, and big chunks of the Pentagon; move federal offices out of Washington. And so on, and on.
I feel too depressed to continue . . .
I did, by the way, get my stolen gun back from Wilmington PD, so that's one nice development in these otherwise grim days.
