The Morning Report - 1/15/21 [J.J. Sefton]

Good morning, kids. Friday and while the top story may be the news that broke last night announcing President Trump's declassifying of Obamagate documents concerning the Hillary Clinton bought-and-paid-for Steele Dossier, the most significant story I think is the Enemy's vote to impeach the President with just scant days remaining in his term. Aside from mere foaming at the mouth rabid hatred of this man, arguably one of the greatest natural leaders and patriots the nation formerly known as America ever produced, there is a rationale behind it: to break the back of the American revival/anti-globalist groundswell that carried him to victory in 2016 AND 2020.

Beyond it's uselessness in practical terms of removing the President prior to noon this coming Wednesday, I think it is a colossal political blunder. If stealing the national election and quite possibly both chambers of Congress wasn't enough, blood-libeling the President and by extension all of us as violent, racist insurrectionists for a "riot" in the Capitol that was caused by agents of the Democrats, and then impeaching him is an absolute outrage. And for key figures in the GOP and far too many backbenchers to willingly go along with this just underscores the futility of conventional party politics, if not explodes it as the myth that it is.

But the premeditated murder of the greatest nation on earth cannot go unanswered. It must not go unanswered. Somehow, some way, some day, there must be some righteous retribution where this nation is restored, the wicked are punished, the corrupt system they ran dismantled and destroyed, and safeguards introduced that prevent this cancer from ever infecting us again. Call it "fundamental transformation," if you will. Sadly, I do not think I will live long enough to see it happen, but we have no choice but to fight.

Until that time, we and our children will face a domestic feral Leviathan that will use its power to control and coerce every aspect of our lives in order to maintain absolute power while lining the pockets of those in charge, as well as a cultural and academic system that played perhaps the central role in putting us in this position. As bad as that is, there's also the totalitarian regime in the Orient hell bent on global hegemony via bribery, espionage and perhaps overt military action, which we will be powerless to stop even if we wanted, considering an alarming number of our political leaders have been in their pocket for years.

I'm not going to lie to you; the situation is very much in doubt.

Oswald Spengler's The Decline of The West, published 1918-1922, laid out the trajectory of the enfeeblement and decay that awaited us, developing a theme that went as far back as the Greek historian Polybius, but that, in the wake of a war that wiped out a generation, seemed less a "theme" than an historically imminent reality. The greatest poet of the modern age, William Butler Yeats, felt it in his bones, working out a visionary schematism in his prose volume A Vision and reflecting on the inevitable in his timeless poem "The Second Coming," written one year after the end of the Great War: "And what rough beast, its hour come round at last/Slouches toward Bethlehem to be born?" Robert Bork's must-read Slouching Towards Gomorrah hammers out Yeats's vision in lurid contemporary detail, pointing toward a "syndrome" of collectivist attitudes dominating the culture, the debilitation of the family structure, and a "left-liberal moral consensus" diluting the text of the U.S. Constitution...

...In the course of time, cowards and parasites -- let us call it the Iscariot function -- will prevail over Great Men and Women. Nation-saviors like Churchill and Thatcher will be cast aside, heroes like Trump will be betrayed by friends and colleagues and openly cheated of re-election. The historical template is Themistocles, the philosophical, Socrates, and the literary, Shakespeare's >. They cannot forestall the vector of decline and will be derided and punished for having tried to do so. As Adams wrote in an April 22, 1776 letter to James Warren, "But I fear, that in every assembly, Members will obtain an Influence, by Noise not sense. By Meanness, not Greatness. By Ignorance not Learning. By contracted Hearts not large souls. I fear too, that it will be impossible to convince and perswade People to establish wise Regulations." And thus do nations and ultimately the civilizations of which they form part subside and vanish as a result of inward rot, the great baulks of timber that hold them up gnawed and crumbling in a myriad of different places.

History, so to speak, can happen here. It has been happening for some considerable time, culminating in the most recent of a long sequence of hammer blows: the fraudulent election of Joe Biden thanks to widespread electoral malfeasance, the advent of rigorous and pervasive censorship protocols, and the ongoing purge of constitutional freedoms. Indeed, it is happening throughout the Western world. Nonetheless, for those of us who still care and recognize the precious muniment we have been given, let the coup de grace happen later instead of sooner. The fight continues on myriad fronts.

Not exactly "happy and peppy and bursting with love" today, am I? And yet, nothing is inevitable. There is still at a minimum a clear (if not vast) majority of people in this country who are not "down for the struggle." 80 million of them, or more, voted to stop the insanity by supporting Trump and the MAGA/America first agenda. This is no longer about party politics. Party politics is dead. This is about good versus evil.

I'm here, and I'm not going anywhere. Come and get me.
