Democratic-Socialists' First Annual Combination Fundraiser For Returning The United States To Indigenous Peoples And Protecting Illegal Immigrant Rights


Democratic-Socialists’ First Annual Combination Fundraiser for Returning the United States to Indigenous People and Protecting Illegal Immigrant Rights

Oregon Convention Center
Portland, Oregon
May 12, 2021

Lilith Sinclair: “Welcome, everyone, to the First Annual Combination Fundraiser for Returning the United States to Indigenous People and Protecting Illegal Immigrant Rights! (Loud applause.) I am, like, so happy to be your host and guide for tonight’s events! It’s gonna totally be a blast, I promise you! As you know, we are sitting here on stolen land, land taken from the Native Americans who were here first. But white European males (scattered “boos” from those in attendance) wanted to colonize this land so they could get started building their Christian Capitalist Kingdom while enslaving or marginalizing indigenous peoples… and everyone else in the world. So tonight, we are going to raise money, hopefully a lot of money, to be given to lobbyists who will advocate for returning all federally-held land in this nation to the Native Americans…the real Americans…the rightful owners of this land. (Very loud applause and some supportive whistling.) We will also be talking about reparations. Johnathan War Eagle will be here later tonight to educate us on that subject, but he’s running a little late as he is managing the cash office today at the Turtle River Casino and there was a significant discrepancy that had to be dealt with. Anyway, we are also here to raise money, hopefully a lot of money, for the countless illegal aliens who are being turned away, shunned, marginalized or insufficiently funded and welcomed by the Trump administration! (Loud applause.) We want to ensure that anyone—from anywhere—can come to this country if they so desire…and be welcomed and made to feel at home. To that end, we will be using half of the funds raised tonight to help achieve that goal, and to lobby for free educations, driver’s licenses, and fertility-enhancing drugs for our soon-to-be-documented hero-guests. (Standing ovation from attendees, some weeping.) New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of The Squad fame (wild cheering)—yes!-- will be in the Lewis & Clark room at 8:00 PM this evening to give a lecture titled, ‘The Sacred, Inviolable Rights of So-Called Illegals.’ I should inform you all that bathrooms are just outside the entrance to the Phil Knight Auditorium. The bathrooms are clearly labeled. One is for cis-men and cis-women, one is for all genders, and another is reserved only for those who don’t identify as any gender. You will all have a chance to partake of several raffles this evening and a light dinner will be served at 7:00 PM. You will have a choice of either a venison patty with maize-on-the-cob, or a burrito with refried beans. Thank you all for coming, and let the fun—and healing—begin! Oh, by-the-way, if any peace-loving BLM or Antifa protesters should show up this evening, just let them have their way. And an autonomous zone. Thanks again. Good night. Enjoy yourselves! Drive safe!”

Media Lying, Deranged


              Anyone who has been in a coma for the past few years and still doesn’t believe mainstream media outlets are blatantly, wildly biased against President Trump, need only pay attention to the past few weeks coverage of the coronavirus pandemic vis-à-vis large gatherings of people. When some law-abiding citizens peacefully protested the months-long lock-down orders in a few states, the media dragged out legions of so called “experts” from whatever dark, dank and damp places in which they normally reside to solemnly swear that these crazy rebels, “domestic terrorists” really, were going to be responsible for the deaths of untold thousands of innocents. They were labeled “selfish,” “petulant,” and flat-out “dangerous” to boot.
              However, when teeming masses of protesters and rioters took to the streets of America’s cities to break anything they didn’t steal-- and burn down buildings with the utmost impunity—these same media outlets never said a word about the potential spread of the coronavirus. In fact, they were rife with “experts” literally telling us that the wanton destruction of our cities by writhing swarms of thugs was a public health benefit, all things considered, and that we’d be racist to criticize them. No better than the vile lock-down protesters, actually. Take that!
             And then Trump announced he was going to restart his rallies.
 The very same media buffoons who had nothing but praise for dense throngs of rioters in the streets, looting and burning down private property, then said that the Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was “dangerous” and “reckless.” Sound familiar? Those who wished to attend the rally must be monsters, they said. Yet they wouldn’t even dare to call the thugs, thieves and arsonists pillaging America’s cities-- and assaulting anyone who stands in their way-- “somewhat inconsiderate.” They are deranged.
Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is real. Demonstrably more so than anything with which the mainstream media tries to indoctrinate us. The media moron’s preposterous pivots and rank hypocrisy would be funny if not so damaging to the last, best hope of Earth. A free society truly needs a free and unbiased press/media. Unfortunately, we don’t have one. Historically, it is often the case that a tyrant, a despot, will take over the media as part of a broader plan of controlling a nation. In the case of the United States—and possibly a few other Western nations—the mainstream media is taking on the role of the tyrant, the despot. It is deliberately misleading, lying to, and brainwashing those whom it is supposed to serve. It cares nothing about them or the nation they inhabit. It feeds off kudos from its own. It exists solely for its own sake, its own power. It lauds itself as it attacks anyone daring to disagree with its agenda.
To its never-ending shame, it holds power, but will never speak truth to itself. Or anyone else.

Professor Vows To Get Those With Whom She Disagrees Fired


              April Mustian, an incoming professor at Winthrop University who previously indoctrinated kids at Illinois State University, recently threatened to report to administrators any white K-12 teachers who dare to put up social media posts that she personally deems “pro-police anti-black rhetoric.” On April (coincidence?) 26th, she posted on Facebook that she would take screenshots of any such comments and use them to get educators with whom she disagrees fired, according to the Young America’s Foundation.  
              This is quite Stasi-esque, a fact of which the learned scholar is apparently unaware. Colleges and universities were instituted to expose students and faculty to different points of view and engage them in vigorous debate, the better to arrive at the truth…or at least a better understanding of opposing viewpoints and their genesis. But debate is gone now, true science out the window. Teaching young folks how to think is so yesterday. Teaching them what to think is far more beneficial to your cause if you are of a leftist bent. (And all leftists are bent.) Liberal good. Conservative bad. Government good. Business bad. Globalization good. Nationalism bad. All other countries good. America bad. LGBTQIIA+ good. Traditional mores bad. Atheists, Agnostics, Muslims good. Christians bad. Black man good. Orange man bad.
 And all of these bad people and things must be silenced, cancelled, fired, or killed.
 In the name of tolerance, equity and inclusion.

Anthem Kneelers Now Celebrated


              Just a couple of years ago, most Americans viewed those who knelt during the national anthem with contempt. A majority of Americans believed that athletes who knelt during the anthem were being disrespectful of the flag, their nation, and the hundreds of thousands who gave the last full measure of devotion defending the country and its banner.
              That was so yesterday.
              A new CBS poll claims to show that a majority of Americans now believe that anthem-kneeling is an entirely acceptable form of protesting racial and other discrimination. A far greater percentage of young people approve of kneeling during the Star-Spangled Banner than do older folks. People’s of color are more likely to approve of this type of protest than their white brethren. By far the biggest divide, however, is found between white Democrats and white Republicans. Roughly 80% of Caucasian Democrats are totally fine with anthem kneelers, whereas roughly the same percentage of white Republicans are not.
              But, as the recent CBS poll shows, people’s opinions can—and do-- change very quickly, especially as regards cultural norms. I have no doubt that, by 2023 at the latest, Americans will be perfectly okay with professional athletes mooning television cameras while the anthem is being played. By 2025, players who are true social justice warriors will feel free to masturbate or take a big, fat dump on the field or court whilst the national anthem is played and the flag formerly known as “Old Glory” waves. In this way, players will express their “resistance” to the social and sexual norms heretofore ruthlessly perpetuated by the white hetero patriarchy…while bravely exposing themselves—and exposing America as the steaming pile of crap that they purport to believe it is.
              (Unless, of course, the national anthem and the Stars and Stripes have been replaced by the song “Imagine” and the LGBTQIIA+ flag by then, respectively.)

Dr. Fauci Now Urges People To Wear Goggles


Dr. Anthony Fauci, who recently violated Washington, D.C.’s, mask mandate by going mask-less during the Nationals’ season opener, has now suggested that Americans wear goggles or face shields for extra protection against COVID-19. Fauci did wear a mask while making the ceremonial first pitch, which fell far short (and about 45 degrees to the left) of its target. However, when he assumed the camera wasn’t on him, his wife and his friend as they sat in the stands during the game, he either wore the mask incorrectly or eschewed it altogether.
The esteemed health expert—and  septuagenarian sex symbol-- told ABC News Chief* Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton: “You have mucosa in the nose, mucosa in the mouth, but you also have mucosa in the eye. Theoretically, you should protect all the mucosal surfaces. So, if you have goggles or an eye shield you should use it.”
Dr. Fauci emphasized, “Gloves, earplugs, nose-plugs, condoms, hijabs, yarmulkes, dental dams, full hazmat suits, giant inflatable bubble balls…everything you have available, really, should be employed to keep you from coming in contact with the disease.”
He added, “I’d also like to see everyone wear humorous cummerbunds, stand on one leg, and continuously recite ‘Fauci is the man!’”
                                            ******************************
*”Chief” is now on the List of Problematic Words and should be avoided at all costs. ABC News has, apparently, not yet received the memo regarding this.

Leftist Dogma


Leftists believe there is only one legitimate opinion on the issues, that being theirs, and demonize those who do not share it as intolerant, exclusionary and divisive. They believe there is a Constitutional right to abort one’s “fetus,” but not to free speech, if they deem it “hate speech.”  They believe “the science is settled” when it comes to an unimaginably complex topic such as climate change, but certainly not when it comes to the plainly obvious existence of two sexes. They believe that second-hand cigarette smoke is uniformly deadly, but that the first-hand smoking of marijuana has numerous remarkable health benefits.
They believe religion is the “opiate of the masses,” despite its obvious benefits to people’s mental and spiritual health over the millennia, yet cling to an irrational, fanatical belief that Socialism will somehow make things better for us all, despite its long, sad-- and abundantly clear-- bloody history. They believe forcibly disarming law-abiding citizens will magically result in criminals being less likely to shoot them, not the reverse. They believe that dramatically raising taxes on those who work-- and paying more to those who don’t—will somehow lead to a more just and prosperous society. They believe that doing away with prisons and reducing the number of police will make them safer.
They believe the phrases “All Lives Matter” and “Make America Great Again” are racist dog-whistles (and a form of actual violence), but that statements comparing President Trump to Adolf Hitler are simply accurate analogies. They believe that Antifa members are essentially freedom fighters but that the Founders were naught but colonial occupiers of the worst kind. They believe capitalism is evil and that Cuba and Venezuela deserve credit for trying to equalize incomes and achieving high rates of literacy. They believe the United States is a racist, sexist, bigoted, patriarchal nation but that we have no right to criticize other cultures, despite the prevalence of wife-beating, female genital mutilation or their propensity to kill gays and lesbians.
They hold that sexual deviance is the highest form of righteousness and conscience, but that cis-males who are openly attracted to cis-females are likely “pervs” and are exhibiting “toxic masculinity.” They believe the death penalty—even for mass murderers—is cruel and barbaric, but that abortion is simply “women’s health care.”
To those on the left, the belief that anything—other than morality itself-- could be immoral…is immoral. Morality is a white male patriarchal construct you see. And that is beyond the pale.
Who are we to disagree?

A Time For Reckoning


This past week, House Democrats put forth the first-ever bill to repeal the Helms Amendment, which prevents U.S. taxpayers from being forced to fund abortions overseas. The House Democrats characterized the amendment as, you guessed it, “deeply rooted in racism.” Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) teamed up to introduce the bill, known as the “Abortion is Health Care Everywhere Act of 2020,” the text of which also touts the benefits to transgenders and people with uteruses in general. Schakowsky released a statement saying, “The Helms Amendment is a policy deeply rooted in racism. It imposes our arbitrary and medically unnecessary abortion restrictions on international communities, allowing the United States to control the health care and bodily autonomy of billions of Black and brown people around the world.” That, of course, is a bald-faced lie…in several respects. Abortion restrictions are neither “deeply rooted in racism” nor “arbitrary.” Quite the contrary. The Helms Amendment does not impose abortion restrictions—or anything else—on international communities or “billions” of Black and brown people around the world.  They are free to do as they please. It restricts our efforts to aid and abet the deaths of countless innocent Black and brown people around the world while protecting the consciences of a great many Americans, 75 percent of whom say they oppose using tax dollars to support abortion in other countries. Democrats either don’t care or don’t believe they will be held accountable for their actions.

Also this past week, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D- Calif.) said that China is "growing into a respectable nation" and urged folks to hold the nation blameless for the coronavirus pandemic. Several other prominent Democrats, Joe Biden included, seem to have fondness for—and connections to-- China and its ruling Communist Party. This despite knowing that the nation deliberately covered up the fact that the coronavirus had been unleashed on the world. And that it routinely engages in intellectual-property theft on our soil, is attempting to achieve total dominance in the South China Sea, threatens its neighbors, has violated its agreement with Britain and stolen Hong Kong’s independence while beating up thousands of innocent protesters…and has imprisoned more than a million Muslim Uighurs and thousands of Falun Gong members.

Oh, and has been harvesting their internal organs, too. Hamid Sabi, a lawyer representing the China Tribunal, an independent panel instituted to investigate Chinese organ harvesting, recently told the United Nations Human Rights Council that “Forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, including the religious minorities of Falun Gong and Uighurs, has been committed for years throughout China on a significant scale.” The Tribunal’s final report on the issue determined that the Chinese government sanctioned the cutting open of victim’s bodies “while still alive for their kidneys, livers, hearts, lungs, cornea and skin to be removed and turned into commodities for sale.” China tacitly admitted to the practice by claiming it ceased using organs from executed prisoners in 2015. Sabi and the Tribunal have urged the U.N. Human Rights Council to investigate the allegations. Unfortunately, the U.N.H.R.C. has been too busy lately denouncing the United States for its tentative attempts to stop rioters from burning down Portland and many other of its major cities to worry about little things like the mass incarceration and organ harvesting of people the Chinese Communist Party deems deplorable.

Liz Throssell, a U.N. human rights spokeswoman, recently stated at a Geneva news briefing, “There have been reports that peaceful protesters have been detained by unidentified police officers and that is a worry because it may place those detained outside the protection of the law and may give rise to arbitrary detention and other human rights violations.” She added, “The authorities should ensure that federal and local security forces deployed are properly and clearly identified and would use force only when necessary, proportionately and in accordance with international standards.”
To Democrats, preventing the needless death of thousands of Black and brown babies with the financial assistance of the United States is racist. And wrong. To Democrats, the NBA, tech giants, and assorted other leftists and “progressives,” the United States is a despicable place of systemic racism. Trump’s tweets are beyond the pale, the Washington Redskins team name so hurtful it must be replaced. But China’s plucking of an organ or two from tens of thousands of people from marginalized groups, while they are still alive…at least for a few more seconds, minutes or hours…is no big deal, no big whoop, no problem. Why so uptight?
There are only two possible “reasons” for Democrats’ positions on these issues: they are mentally ill or truly, unadulteratedly, evil.
This is a time for reckoning. Let’s hope the reckoning occurs this November 3rd. If it does not, it may be too late.
And a different kind of reckoning may await us all.

Mayor Lightfoot Shuns Mayor Frey


              Chicago Mayor Gordon Lori Lightfoot recently pulled out of a virtual roundtable discussion on the future of American cities when she found out that Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey would be sharing the screen with her. The event was to be hosted by Crain’s Chicago Business, one of the most prestigious business publications in the country. Lightfoot, Frey, and David Axelrod, a Democratic political consultant and former Obama campaign guru, were slated to discuss how COVID-19 and the recent riots will define the future of our nation’s cities. Ironically, it is far-left Democrats such as these who have sentenced the nation’s cities to a dismal, dystopian future, and their ever-dwindling number of inhabitants to a dark and dangerous existence.
              Lightweight Lightfoot lamely attempted to attribute her cancelation to a “scheduling conflict,” though it is abundantly clear she did not wish to share a screen with Frey, who is to mayors as Charlie Brown is to professional athletes. Frey let Minneapolis burn without lifting a finger to save it. He may not even have known it was on fire. During a May 29th press conference specifically to address the rioting, a reporter asked the mayor, “What’s the plan here? What are we doing?” Frey responded, “With regard to?”
              None-the-less, it is remarkable that Mayor Lightfoot, as clueless and feckless as anyone alive, chose to distance herself from Frey. After she forced barbershops and salons to close down due to the coronavirus pandemic, she herself had her hair done. She tried to explain her hypocrisy by stating, “I’m the public face of this city. I’m on national media. I’m out in the public eye.” Translation: “I wanted to get my hair done and I’m far more important than you people.”
              Lightfoot shunning Frey is akin to Hitler not wanting to appear with Stalin-- or Bonnie not wanting to be seen with Clyde.
              Ironic and humorous in one sense. 
              Sad, too.

Canadian CEO Chiefly Concerned With Political Correctness


            Catherine Roome, erstwhile CEO of Technical Safety BC, “an independent, self-funded Canadian organization that oversees the safe installation and operation of technical systems and equipment across the province [British Columbia],” has renounced her title. According to a pjmedia.com post, she lamented systemic racism and praised the Black Lives Matter movement before embarking on a truly spectacular display of virtue-signaling.
She…well, let her speak for herself, as quoted by The Globe and Mail: “As folks who know me well will tell you, I am a stickler for inclusive language. I often interrupt people – board directors, heads of organizations, politicians, and others – if I feel they are using titles for our employees that are outdated. So, to receive constructive feedback on my own use of language made me sit up and take notice. One particularly courageous colleague pointed out that I was using a word in my title, president and chief executive officer, that represents something deeply meaningful to many Indigenous peoples. It is a word that is honored and respected in First Nations culture and conveys a meaning very different to organizational leadership. I have long been a champion for Indigenous rights and reconciliation. Yet I am ashamed to say, the thought had never even occurred to me that the title I proudly held could evoke such a response, or even be viewed as disrespectful to the very reconciliation process that I support.”  She added, “So, upon reflection, I have changed my title within the organization to president and lead executive officer.”
The newly self-appointed LEO is fairly bursting at the seams with delight in her own wokeness, so I hate to point out that I am a stickler for language, too. The word “president” originated from the Latinpraesident,” based on the present participle of praesidEre, ergo a president is an official who presides over a body of people, dictionaries tell us. And “executive” is no better, being derived from the Latin “executivus” past participle stem of exequi, meaning to “follow after; carry out, accomplish.” Moreover, online sources inform us that “lead” is akin to the Old High German “leiten,” meaning to lead. For that matter, “officer” stems from Medieval Latin’s “officiarius” and “officium,” meaning “an officer” and “a duty or service,” respectively.
We can clearly see that Ms. Roome is a fraud. Instead of touting her title as “President and Lead Executive Officer,” every word of which has been appropriated and/or is patently offensive, she should instead consider using the phrase “Premier and Preeminent Controlling Director.” Though, come to think of it, I haven’t checked to see if those words could be harmful in some way, too.
Perhaps we could just call her, “Heap big mucky-muck.”
Perhaps not. 
Hey, you?”

If The Mainstream Media Of 2020 Had Existed Then...


December 7th, 1941; NBC Radio Network:

“Good evening and welcome to the NBC Nightly News. In an extraordinary demonstration of flying skill and political moxie, a procession of mostly peaceful Japanese pilots overflew Pearl harbor this morning…”

April 13th, 1945; The New York Times:

“American troops liberated Ohrdruf, a so-called German ‘concentration camp’ yesterday, only to discover that the mostly peaceful Nazis apparently occasionally ‘intensified’ their efforts to convince its Jewish guests to comply with certain regulations and mandates.”

June 19, 1963; The Washington Post:

Mostly peaceful Klu Klux Klan members burned down several black Christian churches yesterday and used hound dogs to tree a number of uppity negroes. These atypical actions were precipitated by the general lack of respect afforded to Klan members according to local authorities…and the KKK. Eventually, a Wall of Mothers formed to protect the mostly peaceful Klan members from potential federal intervention.”

September 11th, 2001; MSNBC:

“New York City—and indeed America herself—was taken aback earlier today when a number of mostly peaceful Muslim jihadists flew hijacked passenger planes into the World Trade Center towers, potentially killing thousands of innocent men, women and children. The question on everyone’s mind is ‘how did the United States bring this on itself?’ or ‘how did George W. Bush and the Republicans manage to force so many members of the Religion of Peace into such bold and hurtful actions?’”

Black And White


 I’m no longer amused by the war on all things “white.” The use of the word itself has come under attack by some progressive extremists of late.  For example, the Associated Press recently announced that it would capitalize “black” whenever it is used in the context of race and culture but will not do the same with the word “white.”  Numerous other news outlets have joined them.

 Ironically, “white privilege” is the term used to tar all things white with the same brush. Snow white, pure white, the Great White Way, white collar, white knight, White Christmas, etc., etc., are all terms used to support the notion that the word white has a deliberately superior, non-inclusive connotation.

 That is a white lie.

Actually, it is a bald-faced lie. And I can prove it.

 I am personally offended by the use of the term “white as a sheet,” indicating someone who is scared silly. “White knuckle” is another term used to describe someone who is scared and fearful. The term “White feather” also denotes a symbol of cowardliness. Detect a trend here? Why is the universally recognized symbol of surrender a white flag?

“White-collar crime” infers that anyone with a desk job or managerial position is likely to be a crook.  And men in white coats come to take the mentally unstable to white rooms. How insensitive is that? “Whitewash” means to cover up, to hide something, typically an indiscretion or illegality. “White elephant?” That is usually used to refer to a possession unwanted but difficult to dispose of. And “white trash?” Really? Hate speech if ever there was such a thing. “White as a ghost” is not a term of endearment, either. Neither is “white around the gills,” meaning someone who is experiencing fear and nausea and/or is near death. “White man’s disease” is a term casually and cruelly used to mock and shame white athletes who cannot jump particularly high. To “bleed someone white” means to strip them of their money and render them poor.

That someone would have been “in the black”-- meaning well off, in good shape, financially healthy-- prior to being bled white. Probably even attended “black-tie affairs,” fancy, swanky gatherings of beautiful people.

I could go on and on, but, suffice it to say, Black words matter.

White ones do, too.

Biden: Nurses Blew In My Nostrils


              Democratic presidential nominee and basement dweller Joe Biden recently participated in a virtual town hall organized by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) during which he called President Trump a “racist” and regaled virtual attendees with a story of his stay at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in 1988, where he underwent a microsurgical craniotomy to alleviate an aneurysm. The Silver Fox said, “I had a nurse at, uh, nurses at Walter Reed hospital who would bend down and whisper in my ear, and they’d go home and get me pillows. They would make sure… they’d actually…probably nothin’ ever taught in, uh, you can’t do it in a COVID time…they’d actually… breathe in my nostrils to make me move, to get…get me movin’.”
              Online videos reveal that, as Biden was “recollecting” this story, what I assume to be a nurse and member of the SEIU shared a split screen with him, keeping a poker face and occasionally mumbling something like “mmhmm” or “wow.” It is amazing that she just stood there and listened to the bizarre and preposterous tale without either questioning Biden or laughing out loud.
              Mouth-to-nose resuscitation is not now, nor was it ever, a medical practice. It is as yet unclear whether Biden made the story up out of whole cloth for some reason, or actually believes it occurred. Perhaps he conflated the story of his inflation with another life event. Where, exactly, did the nurses blow him, if indeed they blew him at all? Many of Biden’s anecdotes are of the “tall tales” variety. If his nose wasn’t blown into, it should be growing. Several of his accounts would earn “four pinocchios” from any reputable fact-checker for their blatant bogusness. Much of the time no one nose knows what he is talking about.
              If Biden is ever to leave his basement to engage the American people, or attempt to debate President Trump, it might be best-- for him-- if someone did blow into his nostrils…to get him movin’ again.
              If anyone ever needed to be reanimated, it is Joe Biden. If he isn’t somehow revitalized, revived and restored, Democratic-Socialists will attempt to carry him across the electoral finish line in Weekend at Bernie’s fashion. Sadly enough, given the current state of the political union, a Weekend at Biden’s ruse might actually work.

Minneapolis Reallocates Money From Police To "Civilian Patrol Groups"


The Minneapolis City Council Budget Committee has approved taking $500,000 from the police budget and transferring it to the Office of Violence Prevention to help pay for civilian safety patrols. That sounds reasonable. I mean, what could go wrong if a city suddenly rife with violent crime reallocates half a million dollars from trained, well-equipped police officers to Sierra Club, PETA and Emily’s List members?
A paid consultant with the Office of Violence Prevention told a local television station that he’s been asked to put together a plan to implement the patrols. Jamil Jackson said his proposal would consist of having 100 civilians on patrol in the city, split into five 20-person groups, two on the north side of the city, two on the south side, and one in the downtown area. Jackson noted that “those locations are not finalized yet, those are just proposals,” and added, "This is to hire men to engage in the community and patrol our community but also help by bringing in resources that allow these youth to have something to do other than what they are doing now." Such as looting and burning stores. Perhaps they could look for a job.
Bob Kroll, president of the Minneapolis Police Federation, told the station he would like to know more details about the civilian patrols. A spokesperson for Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said the chief was unavailable for comment and that, in any case, it "would not be appropriate to comment at this time." We can easily guess what that comment might be.
Jackson says the civilian patrols will not be doing any police work and will not be armed. He further stated that they will not be out in the community fighting crime. That is surely comforting to Minneapolis residents. He added, “We are not going to be out there shooting things up. If there is something happening, and a crime is being committed we will call police and report that kind of activity.”
That is truly mind-boggling. The city is going to take a large sum of money from its police force and give it to people who will…summon the police when they see a crime being committed? Yes, let’s hire a group of ill-equipped middlemen to wander around town, pay them with funds that otherwise would’ve gone to the police, and have them call…the police…if they spot a crime. That way, we can reduce efficiency while inflating response times for emergencies. Brilliant! Only progressive government could come up with a plan like that.
“911? I’d like to report an ongoing case of felony stupidity…”

Erasing America


We are being told that white people are racist, inherently so. And that there is nothing they can do about it. We are also being told that black people can’t be racist, period. Think about this. We are being told that one group of people is racist-- and another isn’t-- due entirely to the color of their skin! What could possibly be more racist than that?!
This would be an amusing Babylon Bee spoof… yet it is real and happening all around us every day. But, sadly, there is more. Ever so much more. People who wish to peacefully attend one party’s political rally are called selfish monsters, those who loot stores and burn down buildings are deemed heroic. Conservatives have been chased off nearly every campus in the country for years. Outright institutional bias against them is now being sanctioned and codified. Even more chillingly, Big Tech companies are ever more eager to harass, shadow ban, demonetize and silence those with traditional beliefs. Those in the mainstream media air only what fits their remarkably narrow agenda and edit audio and video in a deliberate attempt to make conservatives look bad. They even outright lie when they feel it is “necessary.” Their whitewashing and laundering of any misdeeds by those who support their agenda now borders on the breathtaking. They no longer bother even to hide their contempt for those who differ with their cultural and political world view.
Christians are routinely mocked, their religious icons besmirched and now even vandalized by those on the left. Recently, statues of nearly every famous American have been defaced, vandalized, moved or destroyed. First the Marxist mob came for the low-hanging fruit, Confederate generals and those clearly associated with slavery. But blood lust is not easily sated, and soon they assaulted monuments to those with tenuous connections to slavery, racism or the Confederacy. And then they went after those who had no connections to them, those who had, in fact, literally fought against them. Statues of Abraham Lincoln, the man who was assassinated as a result of his unshakable opposition to the Confederacy’s actions and his Proclamation freeing the slaves, were targeted. And of Ulysses S. Grant, the one general who Lincoln could trust to successfully prosecute the war against those who embraced slavery. A man who not only won that war, but aggressively pursued the Ku Klux Klan. A man who freed the one slave he was given and who was eulogized by Frederick Douglas. A man who, as president, worked tirelessly to protect the civil rights of newly freed black slaves.
This orgy of destruction even migrated to Europe and swallowed up a statue of Winston Churchill, who stood alone in the West against Hitler’s Third Reich for many agonizing months. It has consumed a statue of Father Junipero Serra, a Roman Catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan Order who founded the first nine of 21 Spanish missions in California. (Fr. Serra was canonized in 2015 by Pope Francis I, the first saint to be canonized in the United States.) The mob is ruthless, insatiable. But it is anything but invincible. All it takes to stop it is the will to do so. Sadly, that will is nowhere to be found. At least as of yet. So, it marches on, defacing and destroying everything in its path, as the left always does. St. John’s Episcopal Church, the World War II Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of the American Revolution.
To sum up, America and its history are being marginalized. All those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, who gave the last full measure of devotion have been marginalized. The silent majority is being marginalized…and had better find its voice soon, or it will never be able to do so.
“Marginalized?” Marginalized?! Americans with traditional values-- particularly straight, white, conservative Christian males-- are being subjected to marginalization on steroids. They are now the least favored and protected group in the nation and are routinely denied a forum, silenced, shunned, mocked…marginalized.
 Cancelled.

Mainstream Media (America's Enemy): A Tale Of Two Speeches


Barack Obama/Joe Biden/Hillary Clinton/Elizabeth Warren/Andrew Cuomo/AOC, etc., etc.:

“If you own a business, you didn’t do it. We have to be careful of supporters of Donald trump, half of whom I say are in a basket of deplorables. You know, they cling to their God and their guns. Far-right radical skinhead white supremacists are the biggest threat to this country.”

NYT/Washington Post/CNN/MSNBC, et. al.: “In a magnificent, soaring speech, pleading for togetherness, seeking to heal and unify this country, Obama [or fill-in-the-blank progressive Democrat] masterfully showed who is who and what must be done. This sent thrills up the legs of many in attendance—and indeed of those listening around the world.”

President Trump:

 “There is nothing we cannot do, nothing we cannot achieve, if we recognize our history and our calling. After all, we are Americans, no matter what race, ethnicity, sex or origin. This great nation of ours has produced people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglas, Jackie Robinson, Harriet Tubman, Dr. Martin Luther King and Muhammed Ali."

NYT/Washington Post/CNN/MSNBC, et. al.: “In a dark and divisive speech, President Trump pushed racial hatred and intolerance, lauded white supremacy and desperately tried to hide his grave mishandling of the coronavirus which has led to the tragic death of millions of Americans, nearly all of them people of color, whom he obviously and openly despises.”

Obama:

“Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. Drive safe. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.”

New York Times/Washington Post/CNN/MSNBC, et. al.: “In an eloquent, soaring speech, fairly dripping with good will, the president thanked those in the massive crowd for coming, taking the time to personally recognize their individual genders, and extending heartfelt wishes for their safe travels and future blessings. A glorious speech, appealing to the better angels in our nature.”

Trump:

“Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. Drive safe. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.”

New York Times/Washington Post/CNN/MSNBC, et. al.: “In a dark, divisive and remarkably tone-deaf address, the down-on-his-luck and increasingly desperate President Trump chose to cling to traditional white, patriarchal jargon, totally excluding members of the LGBTQIIA+ community when thanking “ladies and gentlemen” for attending his diatribe against humanity. He then disingenuously purported to wish those few in attendance well by saying “drive safe,” utterly dismissing any who may have walked, biked or taken public transportation. This deliberate slander was, of course, especially hurtful to those who didn’t pass their driver’s exams, which we know are specifically designed to prevent peoples of color from obtaining a license to operate a motor vehicle. In closing, The Divider-in-Chief, in characteristic hyper-Christian fashion, invoked a non-existent ‘God’ (giggle) in a misguided attempt to praise and bless his supporters and the Whites Only Need Apply Nation of which he is apparently so proud. Moreover, he refused to wear a facial mask while speaking and cowardly avoided the opportunity to talk about the devastating effects of the Trump Virus, or COVID-19 if you prefer, and his many—and glaring—mistakes in dealing with it.”

People Being "Cancelled" For Supporting President Trump


              Professors are being let go and people are losing their jobs for openly supporting President Trump, praising America or not giving full-throated support to the Black Lives Matter Marxist-terrorist group/movement. Conservatives are being silenced, shadow-banned, demonetized and cancelled outright at unprecedented rates. And now Democratic politicians are joining with leftists on anti-social media to boycott Goya, a Hispanic-owned food-manufacturer, after the company’s CEO dared to praise President Donald Trump following a recent roundtable discussion for Hispanic businesses and leaders. During a speech in the White House Rose Garden, Goya’s CEO Robert Unanue stated, "We're all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder. We have an incredible builder. And we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country — that we will continue to prosper and grow."
              Unanue, a Spanish-American himself, apparently enraged many with his heartfelt remarks, including high-profile Democrats and assorted other anarcho-Marxists, who are now vowing to boycott all products from the minority-owned company that was founded by Spanish immigrants in 1936. In fact, later on the same day that Unanue praised Trump for being “a builder” and hoped that his country would “continue to prosper and grow,” #BoycottGoya and #Goyaway were the top trending phrases on Twitter. Democratic Socialist airhead Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was so incensed by her fellow Hispanic’s fondness for his president and country she took to Twitter to tweet, “Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling ‘how to make your own Adobo,’” a snarky reference to boycotting one of Goya’s products.
              Wander off the Democrat Reservation even a little bit and you will be punished, soundly thrashed, mocked, boycotted and cancelled. The number of those being physically assaulted for simply wearing a “MAGA” hat or other pro-Trump attire is legion. Now those who openly declare support for the president are being targeted and threatened (by the self-proclaimed most tolerant people on Earth). This has never happened before in American history, at least to this extent. If someone discovers your husband/son/uncle/second cousin has a Facebook post lauding Trump or criticizing the BLM movement, you may lose your job.
              People who lived through similar purges and thought-cleansing in countries such as the former Soviet Union, Romania, Cuba, and now Venezuela, are warning us that what is happening in the U.S. now looks and feels eerily similar to what they saw then. It is only a matter of time, and think how fast things have changed with the COVID-19 pandemic and the street riots in most major cities, until those who voted for Trump—or others unsanctioned by The Swamp and The Mob—are sent to re-education camps or are “disappeared” entirely, never to resurface.
              Fortunately, the #BoycottGoya campaign appears to have backfired, with many conservatives making a point of buying Goya products in bulk. We shall see, come this November 3rd, if the “silent majority” is actually a majority, and if it can keep the country from being effectively erased, at least for another four years.

Anti-Natalists Say It Is Best Not To Be


There are some strange philosophies out there. Always have been. But perhaps none as bizarre as “anti-natalism.” Anti-natalists believe that life is a harm and an imposition, human existence is totally pointless, and no one should procreate. I will admit that, when I’m listening to AOC or Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for example, life can appear pointless at times. However, the feeling quickly passes, and I wouldn’t recommend inviting many anti-natalists to your next party.  

Sadly, this anti-life “philosophy” appears to be gaining mainstream acceptance. Last February, a 27-year-old man from Mumbai named Raphael Samuel announced he had plans to sue his parents for bringing him into the world, because he believes it is wrong to bring new people into the world without their consent. Since it is impossible for one to give one’s consent unless one is already alive, to anti-natalists like Samuel, this means that no one should ever be born. (By the way, wouldn’t this line of reasoning mean that parents should get their offspring’s consent before aborting them, as well, no matter the other aspects of their belief?).

According to anti-natalists, the question of whether to have a child is not just a personal one, but an ethical one, and the correct answer is always no, rendering the question no question at all. This makes them the ultimate, perfected leftists/progressives. There is—or should be—no free will! Or human beings! Wouldn’t that be a Godsend to our Mother Earth?! (Except that She wouldn’t be our mother in that case, and there is no God according to many on the left).

Though differing from them in degree, anti-natalists join abortion-rights activists and a growing number of climate change alarmists in essentially touting the “right not to be born.” Combined with the right to die movement and population doomsayers, they comprise a culture of death—and an illogically large group of people who don’t think there should be… nearly as many other people. (Or, as the writer P.J. O’Rourke titled one chapter in his book All the Trouble in The World, “Just Enough of Me, Way, Way Too Many of You). Consider: if you are an anti-natalist and still yammering (i.e. alive), you are a fraud.

Of course, there is also the group Zero Population Growth, one of whose members founded the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement ((VHEMT) with the lofty goal of “phasing out the human race by voluntarily ceasing to breed,” or so states the group’s website. Hey, at least it’s voluntarily!

Anti-natalists are not to be confused with “denatalists.” The latter group only opposes procreation in certain circumstances, such as between people with genetic disabilities that would likely be passed on to their offspring. Still, this sounds a bit too Third Reich-ish for my liking. Anti-natalists are opposed to any and all births, period. They rightly believe that all life involves at least some suffering, therefore bringing life into the world guarantees the introduction of at least some pain or harm. From that, however, they extrapolate that it is best not to bring any life into the world. They say, since it is obviously too late to prevent our own miserable existence, the least we can do is to prevent the existence of potential future beings. How magnanimous of us.

Died-in-the-wool anti-natalists, the true believers, think their “values” apply not only to humans but to all sentient beings. David Benatar is the author of a book titled, “Better Never to Have Been: The Harm of Coming into Existence.” He wrote, “It would be better if humans (and other species) became extinct.” This belief is apparently why most anti-natalists are vegans. That said, momentary pain aside, wouldn’t it be better if anti-natalists put “other sentient beings” out of their misery by killing and eating them? Wouldn’t they be doing them a service? Anti-natalists say that “living things can be harmed, non-living things cannot be harmed, therefore it’s best if there are no living things.” It would be best if there were no plants then, either, Vegans. After all, some people claim plants can feel pain, too, and they do respond to various stimuli.

To recap, anti-natalists think the best-case scenario is a complete lack of life, a permanent state of non-consciousness. An empty universe. An infinite void. If, in fact, there has to be a universe, or a void, at all.

Benatar, a South African philosopher and academic, goes even further. He avers that both life and death are, for the most part, awful. He says that together they constitute “an existential vise—the wretched grip that enforces our predicament.” Therefore, he argues, it’s better not to enter into the predicament in the first place. A couple of questions for Benatar: does he remember what it was like before he was born? Maybe that was awful, too. Moreover, since he assumedly hasn’t died yet, how does he know the afterlife is nothing to write home about? Is it possible his progressive bitterness and disdain for life—his anti-natalism itself—makes him feel life is more painful and unrewarding than it otherwise would be?

His statement reminds me of a quote from Woody Allen: “More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.” (To Benatar, that choice is an easy one: head towards extinction).

Mankind does face a crossroads. One path leads to darkness, privation and totalitarianism. That path is marked by despair and utter hopelessness. And we well know how to get there. We take the same path that the U.S.S.R., North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela took. The path that the Democratic-Socialists are beckoning us to go down now.

The other path? This path reconnects us with our founding principles. Limited government of, by, and for, the people. Free markets. Natural Law. The Declaration of Independence states: “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.” Life. Happiness. Speaking of the Creator, Genesis tells us: “God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them. God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.’”

God is the ultimate pro-natalist. But what does He know? He’s not an academic.

President Trump Discovers Cure For Coronavirus?


August 13, 2020

Announcement: 100% Effective COVID-19 Vaccine Created by President Trump Himself to Be Available Immediately



New York Times reaction: “The president is obviously trying to leverage his office and name recognition in a shameless attempt to make an obscene amount of money off of the new vaccine he has allegedly invented…”

Washington Post reaction: “Anonymous sources say the so-called ‘Trump Vaccine’ may have terrible side-effects, the worst of which could even lead to his re-election…”

MSNBC reaction: “Some say the president is calling his drug the ‘Anti-Wuhan Flu Vaccine,’ a darkly xenophobic way of lording his alleged discovery over China. Insiders claim Trump even wants to make certain Americans get first crack at the vaccine, and to hell with everybody else.”

CNN reaction: “Experts now say the supposed ‘cure’ could be more dangerous than the disease and note that adverse reactions to the drug will be far more common—and pronounced—among the LGBTQ community and peoples of color.”

Blue State governors’ reaction: “Health officials stress that this alleged breakthrough is in no way license for people to quit wearing facial masks and to cease observing social distancing rules. In fact, they say even more stringent measures may well be needed to prevent new and worse diseases from suddenly arising and taking hold amongst our citizens, spawning an even deadlier pandemic.”

Nancy Pelosi’s reaction: “Well, just when you think President…er…uh…Trump can’t get any more sinister and divisive, he does something like this. This is nothing more than an obvious attempt to get people to attend his little rallies and think that it’s okay that the Republican National Convention is held as usual. And he really wants to, you know, seduce people into going to their polling places come November 3rd instead of being safe and responsible and voting by email…er…uh…mail. This is nothing more than a way for him to further divide the country. It’s a shocking display of…uh…selfishness and mean-spiritedness.”

Jimmy Kimmel/Jimmy Fallon/Stephen Colbert, etc., etc. reaction: “I mean…this guy…what a clown, what a puke! Am I right?! Vaccinate this, pal!” (Hearty laughter)

Teacher Fired For Saying "Trump Is Our President"


              Walled Lake, Michigan, school district officials fired Justin Kucera, a popular high school social studies teacher and varsity baseball coach, after he noted that “Trump is our president” on social media. Kucera recently tweeted, “I’m done being silent. @realDonaldTrump is our president,” and was subsequently hauled into a closed-door meeting at which he was given an ultimatum: resign or be fired. Kucera had indicated that he looked favorably on President Trump’s call to reopen schools. He stated: “I was required to meet with human resources, the superintendent, and my principal. They initially took my statement on why I tweeted those tweets and they told me they would have a decision about my future employment in the upcoming days. When they completed the meeting, I was told I had the option to either be fired or resign.”

              Kucera said his comment was intended to unify, not divide, and students and parents alike said Kucera never brought politics into the classroom. One parent labeled Kucera “an apolitical figure.” He added: “Justin coached my son his entire high school career and also was his AP History teacher and student leadership teacher for two years. He always tried to stay right down the middle, avoid political conversations, and let the students make their own call based on their own life experiences.” (No wonder they axed him. If you don’t tow the mob’s Marxist line, you are persona non grata. “How are we going to make sure the kids do what we want and vote the right way if we don’t tell them how to think?”)

              Of course, other Walled Lake teachers have routinely expressed their political views without experiencing any repercussions. One encouraged her students to read an article about “how to beat Trump,” while another —still employed— once called Trump a “sociopath” on Facebook.

              Such is the state of our union today: stating a simple truth can get one fired. Shadow-banned. Censored. Erased. Cancelled. Be cognizant of that sad fact before you recklessly state that “the U.S. has a bicameral legislature,” “the Electoral College selects the president,” or “the United States essentially has a two-party political system.” The latter claim is in doubt now, anyway, whereas the former two may not be the case much longer…largely because the latter claim is in doubt now.

              It has become truly dangerous to risk saying anything that isn’t specifically approved by the “progressive” (leftist) thought police.

              “Water is wet.” There, I said it. If this blogsite disappears tomorrow, you’ll know why.

NFL Planning To Play "Black National Anthem" Prior To Week One Games


The NFL is planning to have “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” more commonly known as the Black National Anthem, played or performed before all of its first week games this season, the ever so woke sports network ESPN gleefully reported recently. The network cited a source supposedly familiar with the plans and said that the song will be played prior to “The Star-Spangled Banner.” ESPN added that the league is considering putting the names of victims of police brutality on player uniforms. In days of yore, national anthems were explicitly a vehicle to unite a nation’s people through their shared history and pride in their country.

There is as of yet no word on if and when the league plans to play the “Yellow,” “Brown,” or “Red” National Anthems. Nor has the NFL announced plans to play “National Anthems” of atheists, pangenders, Catholics, bisexual mulatto transvestites, or of middle-class agnostics who were born on Tuesday afternoons during the month of May. These oversights, too, must be redressed if the nation is to finally live up to its erstwhile promise. Right?

A question for you, though, one I haven’t seen elsewhere. What would happen if I, or any players, took a knee during the Black National Anthem? Would I/we be considered principled and courageous, or would we be excommunicated from the Church of Woke, shunned and vilified? Or worse? Why?

Land of the free? Home of the brave?

School Board Member Threatens To Shoot Anyone Maskless


              Selinsgrove Area School District (Pennsylvania) board member Jennifer Rager-Kay recently resigned after she utilized a Facebook post to threaten to shoot anyone not wearing a face mask who got withing six feet of her or her family. PennLive.com reported that Rager-Kay was prompted to make the post after seeing a photo of anti-COVID lockdown protesters in the state capital of Harrisburg recently.

              Rager-Kay is a doctor who ran unsuccessfully as a Democrat for an open state House seat last year. She wrote: “I find it interesting that the largest group of the participants in the anti-lockdown protest and refusing to wear masks in public as they see it as a violation of their constitutional rights are among those against a form of gun regulations.” That’s odd, as these positions are perfectly consistent. The protesters of whom she is referencing correctly believe that the government does not have a constitutional right to make them stay in their homes, cover their faces or arbitrarily interfere with their Second Amendment protections.

              So, naturally, she added: “As a concerned carry-permitted gun owner, if you refuse to wear a mask and try to come within 6 feet of me or my family, I will exercise the same constitutional rights to shoot you.” Ms. Rager-Kay, the constitutional right is “to keep and bear Arms,” not to shoot people who don’t wear masks and/or who come near you. This is anything but a subtle difference.

              Rager-Kay eventually—and temporarily—issued a semi-apology: “As a wife, mother and physician, it is my job and responsibility to ‘do no harm’ and the constant barrage of protests and defiance to public health reached a boiling point for me, thus the reason for my overly dramatic and exaggerated post. My words demonstrated how constitutional rights can be misinterpreted, and were meant to serve as an example of extremism.” Ironically, her words certainly did demonstrate how constitutional rights can be misinterpreted…by Rager-Kay herself. Her “apology” referred to those who decline to wear masks as “bioterrorists.” Like most on the left, she doesn’t like those peaceably protesting stupefying government overreach and the capricious taking of people’s freedoms, but probably is sympathetic to those “protesters” in Minneapolis who burned and looted countless businesses and cars, and generally went around breaking everything they didn’t steal.

              The good doctor responded to those calling for her resignation by taking to Facebook again, noting: “My post was described as hateful, but hateful suggests a lack of love. And to me, lack of love is demonstrated by refusing to wear a mask out of love for those you encounter.” Like the “lack of love” demonstrated by those whom you threaten to shoot. Amazing. She also wrote: “And if I must serve as the scapegoat to call attention to the extreme level of hatred and ignorance that exists and continues to pervade our community in attempt for reconciliation, I will gladly accept that burden. I can only apologize to those who have supported me and may share in my disappointment.” She’s a martyr! Ms. Misunderstood, taking one for the team, so to speak. (But not a bullet, that she reserves for facemask deniers.)

Rager-Kay succeeded in calling attention to the “extreme level of hatred and ignorance that exists.” Not in the way in which she intended, but by threatening to shoot those she ignorantly deemed haters and ignoramuses for demurring to wear facial masks.

One last dose of irony and humor: the PennLive.com story notes that Rager-Kay’s Facebook page, which she has apparently taken down, included a very recent photo of “a parade of fire equipment” gathered for her son’s birthday, showing a firefighter giving her son a gift. Neither of them is wearing a mask.

Hope that gift wasn’t the coronavirus, but at least no one was shot.

Darkness At Noon Now Upon Us
