The Morning Report - 1/6/22

pelosiarson.jpg

Good morning, kids. Thursday and one year ago today. . .

For all intents and purposes, on January 6, 2021, America, as founded, ceased to exist. Having been mortally wounded on Election Day, it was smothered with a My Pillow, its remains cremated at noon on January 20th, 2021.

That is not only the opening sentence of my book, but it is a foundational belief from which I have viewed every event since that day, and really since the moment President - in exile - Donald Trump won the GOP nomination in 2016. If you view American foreign and domestic policy going back decades earlier through that lens, your beliefs about our government and society no longer hold up. It's shattering to realize that since the end of the Second World War, we've been living a lie. There are far too many people, including some very intelligent, erudite pundits who refuse to see things as they are because the truth is too painful to bear, and so they construct this illusion of regular order and business as usual, while casting the blame for our troubles on "mean tweets." Sad and pathetic, but that's human nature. We crave stability, order and security (so does our Enemy, only not quite the same way we do) and so, despite all the evidence about who is running things, what they have done and what they continue to do, so many people prefer to duck their heads in the sand and pretend as if there's nothing out of the ordinary going on. Worse, they blame the victims -- us.

Don't get me wrong; it's not our heritage, our history and the Judeo-Christian principles that guided the Founders and Framers that I am castigating. I was brought up to live as upright and righteous a life as possible, failing and faltering many times in my lifetime but still having enough of a conscience and morality to recognize my failings and faults and try to rectify them, if not avoid them in the first place. America as founded was a miracle. It was "exceptional" in that it was the exception to the historical rule of tyranny and oppression; a free society that for the first time put the individual over government. It depended upon the citizenry respecting the rights of others to live their lives as they saw fit, all within the boundaries of a just and stable law. That was its greatest strength and as it turns out, its Achilles heel.

It's neither the Constitution nor the Bill of Rights that protects you. It's the collective respect of those documents as written by some 330 million of your fellow citizens that protects you. Especially those who we elect and send to Washington DC, state capitals and city halls all over the nation every two to four years. Without that, you can wipe your ass with those documents. Leave it to John Adams to say it best:

"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

And those in power, who crave it more than life itself, have brought us to this place by doing the unthinkable. The Democrats sabotaged an election and then with the assistance of the GOP certified the theft to preserve, not their "sacred democracy" (vomit) but their status as our overlords in a bureaucratic, socialist State completely antithetical to the republic as founded, and becoming more and more tyrannical by the day as its intentions and even existence are exposed. At least to those with eyes to see.

In 44 BC, Roman Senators murdered Caesar, claiming they acted to protect the Republic. In fact, they simply sought power. Their coup d'etat put the final nail in the coffin of a republic that had been dead in deed, if not name, for decades. coup d'etats differ from revolutions in that they're generally orchestrated by or include people within government who seize power -- often by narrowly using or just threatening violence -- resulting in a rapid transition of power. Revolutions are often longer affairs that include much of a country's population and exponentially more bloodshed.

Most coups try to keep much of the society and government apparatus intact, merely changing who's in charge. This illusion of continuity is intended to gain the population's acquiescence by avoiding the appearance of a bloody civil war.

And that's exactly what we got. While Donald Trump does not lie in a bloody toga on the floor of the Senate, America witnessed a coup d'etat equally as vicious. Many will deny one took place because their guy won but, make no mistake, virtually every American knows one did, even if only 56% admit it.

Emphasis mine, as it goes to the nub of my comments on denial as well as those of us who are looking to avoid an actual violent civil war and seek some sort of national divorce or separation. I linked to a piece by Benjamin Braddock yesterday which drew quite a few protestations regarding the essay's premise; to wit, national divorce being a "ridiculous fantasy."

The impetus for this proposal from conservatives and liberals alike is the recognition that division in our country has gone beyond disagreement and good-natured rivalry to outright hatred. Indeed, far from being united by crisis as we were at crucial points in the past, we are now at a point of schadenfreude -- liberals reveling in suffering and disaster when it happens to conservatives, and vice versa.

The American population has always been divided. That is not a particularly new phenomenon, nor is it unique to America. But in the divisions of the past -- even the bloody ones -- we found a way to move forward together. As deep as the cultural differences between different sections of the country were, we were still running on the same basic cultural and political operating system inherited from our European-Christian founding. That is not the case now.

The American population is not just divided, these divisions form subcultures that are entirely alien to one another. Twenty years ago, when challenged by a national crisis in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Americans came together in great unity, which was promptly used by our political class to their own cynical ends. Now, once again challenged by a national crisis, the American people are setting themselves against each other and our political class is using this, too, to their own cynical ends. . . .

. . . But a word of warning is in order. The kind of national divorce conservatives have in mind is the amicable separation that Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin sought when they introduced the term "conscious uncoupling" to the cultural lexicon. A world in which two parties could break up without losing everything. It's an appealing idea. But when liberals say they're considering a national divorce, they mean they want to take your kids, half your money (plus monthly payments), have you living in a dismal studio apartment furnished solely with an air mattress and a microwave, all while continuing to nag you relentlessly and blame you for their problems. . .

. . . The moment that a conservative breakaway nation achieved independence and success there would be plans already underway for color revolutions and occupation by gender diverse commissars. They will never leave us alone. And they will never let us go. Why would they? . .

. . . The solution is not some national divorce or civil war. The solution is for the Right to stop being rank amateurs when it comes to politics and governance. Purge the grifters and incompetents. Bring back the old sharks and have them train a new generation in the art of election warfare. And once in power, actually use that power to purge or destroy the institutions responsible for brainwashing so many of our countrymen. The Right has to articulate and act on a positive vision for America and break out of this learned helplessness that we find ourselves in as we point and object while the other side steadily achieves their goals. We have to learn from the Left in order to defeat it.

Full disclosure: Benjamin Braddock wrote the wonderful foreword to my book and is a friend. That said, while I do agree with him 100% about why the Left would never accept an amicable break up, it doesn't jibe I think with his observations about the nature of the split in the first place. As for post 9/11 unity, that lasted long enough for the Left to blame Islamophobia and Israel and then for Dubya to bleat that this is not a war on Islam; i.e. about 72 hours. As for Republicans adopting the same attitude and killer instincts about elections, this presupposes that elections are going to be free and fair going forward. 2020 should be a real wake-up call about that.

In any case, the salient point is that the Left and Right, if you will, do not merely disagree on issues. The disagreement is with the very nature of America as founded in the first place. The Left hate everything about this country, its history and its citizens. I do not see how there can be any kind of reconciliation at all; the only way to reconcile a shark with chum is by the shark ripping into it and swallowing the bits. As of right now, a state of national divorce does indeed exist. The problem is our side does not have any sovereignty or control of its affairs and is at the literal mercy of an illegitimate junta that is hell bent on maintaining power forever.

If there is any sort of positive spin I can put on the situation, it is that more and more people are recognizing the insanity of Leftist Democrat policies. From decriminalizing crime, the complete insanity over Chinese COVID and vaccines, stagflation and economic dislocation, the silencing of any voices of dissent about all the preceding, the castration - figurative and literal - of our military preparedness and the mind- and body-raping of our children in the indoctrination mills, it seems as if even lifelong Democrats have had enough and are heading for the hills; that is, any red state they can get to. This time, it seems that they aren't what Mark Levin lamented as "locusts" but actually even switching party affiliation to GOP. Now all we have to do is get rid of the GOP and victory is ours.

As we Psaki-Psircle back to the top vis a vis January 6, 2021, Ace talked about it yesterday, via a quote from Yossi Gestetner. To wit, fuck Ted Cruz.

Yossi Gestetner
@YossiGestetner

The minute you call it a "violent terrorist attack on the capitol," you lose most of your standing when complaining about the DOJ, Dems and Media because they have diff views than you how to handle a "violent terrorist attack on the capitol."

Ted Cruz: "We are approaching a solemn anniversary this week. And it is an anniversary of a violent terrorist attack on the capitol."

"It is also worth asking ... What could have prevented the breach of the Capitol? What could have prevented the riot getting as far as it did?"

Cruz, the "fighter."

He called now Jan 6th "a violent terrorist attack on the capitol."

Hahaha.

GOP - Group of Putzes.

Until I'm blue in the face, whatever violence that happened on January 6, 2021 at the Capitol was either pre-planned or egged-on by the FBI/DOJ, Capitol Police and their Antifa BLM confederates. The hapless folks who did nothing more than misdemeanor trespass are languishing as political prisoners to this very day. It was every bit a false-flag Reichstag Fire event used to demonize political opponents and delegitimize any criticism of the outcome of the 2020 election. Still is.

Yes the Democrats stabbed us in the back but it was the GOP that twisted the knife by certifying a fraudulent Electoral College vote. Schmucks like Romney and Flake are easy to spot and deal with. But I supported Ted Cruz in '16. No more. With a GOP like this, forget about them getting down and dirty with the Dems during election season. At this point, I trust Manchin and Sinema more with our fate than Cruz.

Oh, just fuck the lot of them. And as some commenter asked yesterday "why didn't Trump issue a blanket pardon to anyone arrested on January 6?" Oh, for sure, a hell like even he hadn't endured the previous four years would have rained down on him. But then again, so what? Scores of innocent people are languishing as political prisoners and he has not said a word about it. I am a diehard Trump supporter and can't thank him enough for what he did during his tenure. But his silence on this is deafening.

It only underscores what I have come to realize. We cannot put our faith in a man or woman, or a party. It's now on us. The world has changed, irrevocably and in a way too frightening to contemplate. But it's in our face. The sooner we let go of the past and what was done, the more we can maintain and focus our anger. This infamy cannot stand, if for no other reason than one day we may not be able to overcome it. How we overcome it, I cannot tell you. I wish I could. But we can't know the future. The Enemy that did this - powerful as they are - are not infallible.

Remember January 6th. May the Lord deliver His divine retribution on the evil that perpetrated this disaster on us.

Heads up: I will be a guest of Steve Noxon (who some may remember as Wiser Bud) on his "Talk of the Town" show this morning to talk about my book and the events of one year ago today at 11:30AM Eastern on WATR 97.7FM, 1320AM out of Waterbury, CT. If you're not in the area, then I believe you can listen live at WATR.com. And speaking of my book:
