The Morning Report — 8/1/22

horiubyrdchange.jpg

Good morning, kids. Start of a new week and a new month with the abuse of an illegitimate junta continuing its rampage of destruction and subjugation. Having been raised to trust the police, the press and a system of government that supposedly ensures my individual freedom, it has been shocking in the extreme to witness all of it evaporate right in front of my eyes. Many people refuse to see it, but when you do and accept the reality of "It Can't Happen Here" actually having happened here, it's a clarifying moment.

If you look into the recent past, well beyond Trump and Obama, so many incidents wherein you accepted the official story of both the government and media (the latter being the Siamese twin of the former, especially the Democrats, the bureaucracy and, when necessary, GOP globalist stooges), it is absolutely crystal clear that you were lied to in order to preserve, protect and defend the agenda of "fundamental transformation." Arguably, the prime example of that, which happened 30 years ago this month, and during the waning days of not a Democrat Leftist administration but putatively a pro-American hawk, is Ruby Ridge.

For those too young to remember, it was thirty years ago this month that the DOJ entrapped Randy Weaver for his Christian beliefs, issued a death warrant, killed his dog, son, and wife, and shot Weaver and his friend.

Surely, the DOJ doesn’t just execute innocent people. Yet, as we learned at trial:

He had no propensity to commit crimes. Never even had a traffic ticket. Never been charged with a crime of any kind and honorably served his country.

. . . The FBI knew Weaver, his wife, and his adult children regularly carried arms, as many did in the rural community. “We were right in the middle of grizzly territory, mountain lions, moose. They are very dangerous animals.” But certainly not more dangerous than government agents.

Eighteen months later, on August 21, 1992, marshals arrived making no announcement for surrender. They were “in combat gear. They were wearing full camouflage suits with black ninja-type hoods. They were carrying machine guns and semi-automatic pistols. They were trained to kill” . . .

. . . The NY Times ran the headline, “White Supremacist Surrenders. Weaver and his wife were believers in Christian Identity, which holds that Europeans are the lost tribe of Israel, that blacks are subhuman and Jews are satanic. The agency has said its officers fired only after being shot at.” With that, the guilt had been assigned, the DOJ absolved, and the demonization was complete.

Weaver, charged with first-degree murder, though he never fired a shot at anyone, faced the death penalty. The DOJ subpoenaed a staggering 51 witnesses over three months, and when it was done, Weaver was found not guilty on all counts except minor charges for failing to appear.

As for the DOJ, Larry Potts, who signed that death warrant, was promoted to Deputy Director. The marshal who put a bullet into Sam’s back was awarded the medal of valor.

The sniper who assassinated Vicki had charges brought but dropped.

I left out the details of the entire incident but essentially, the FBI entrapped an innocent man and when he refused to work for them as a snitch, they set about an elaborate plot to have him liquidated. Many of the same individuals who are now the apex predators of our freedoms made their bones in the intel/law enforcement cabal back then. Clapper, Brennan, Comey, Wray, Garland and William Barr.

The same scam they pulled on Weaver is the same garbage they pulled on Trump with the phony pee tape and worse, the January 6th "insurrection" scam that ensnared dozens of innocent Americans to create the narrative of Trump/conservative = Nazi threat to "our precious democracy" (*vomit). As many have said, and rightly so, the FBI and DOJ are so thoroughly corrupt that they need to be dismantled. Whatever legitimate activities they may engage in should be decentralized and tightly controlled, if possible. But, like impeaching President Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants, what good will it do when every other department and every other agency in the federal and many state governments is equally corrupt, weaponized as tools of oppression to smash any voices of dissent to the path our nation and society has been put on for over 100 years, seeming inexorably? Add to it vast swathes of society outside government, most especially academia, and you see the predicament we find ourselves in?

No, the whole damn thing has to be shut down. You cannot use the instrumentalities of government and society in general to reverse course when it's those very things that got us in trouble in the first place. Friend and friend of the blog Michael Walsh:

In case you haven't heard, the United States is currently in the process of "transitioning." For reasons of decorum, and to not upset the rubes, from what to what is never quite spelled out, but those of us who have been following the "progressive" Left for the past six decades or so have a pretty clear idea of what they mean. It was first brazenly articulated by candidate Barack Obama in a campaign appearance just before the 2008 presidential election when he said, "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

At the time, such braggadocio was largely chalked up to typical hustings rhetoric by a fresh new face eager to contrast his relative youth (Obama was 47 at the time) with the geriatric-adjacent ambulatory husk of John McCain, who was 72, You know, something akin to John F. Kennedy's line in his 1961 inaugural address about "a new generation of Americans, born in this century." JFK was born in 1917; Dwight Eisenhower, the man he was succeeding, had been born in 1890. Even though both had served during World War II (Eisenhower as Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, Kennedy as a Navy lieutenant in the Pacific), they seemed of vastly different generations. In other words, just talk.

Except, as we now know, it wasn't. Obama meant every one of those thirteen infamous words, and older folks who had lived through the 1960s knew exactly what he meant. "Change" was not simply a buzzword meant to distinguish the "new" policies of one party from the "old" policies of the other, within a context of broadly accepted governing principles and love for the nation as founded, including the primacy of the Constitution. Rather, it was a complete break from the American tradition, a kind of cultural-political coup whose message couldn't have been clearer. . .

. . . now that the adults are back, what the hell? If girls can be boys and boys can be girls, it's a mixed-up, muddled-up shook up world anyway. There is no innate nature to anything any more, and nothing really matters. As the Left's favorite economist, John Maynard Keynes, famously said: "In the long run, we are all dead," so let's party like it's 476 or 1543 or 1914.  It's the ultimate triumph of mind over matter, of fiat over gold, of fantasy over reality, and you're a bigot if you think otherwise. You're the enemy now. So like the blushing bride on her wedding night, lie back, think of England, and let the transitioning begin. After all, you have no choice. You're next.

    America's "Transitioning"—But to What?
  • "Under global governance the democratic process becomes a play in which the democrats speak lines written by non-accountable global governance bureaucrats. It ends in a series of clashes and crises like those cited above. And whether or not those who protest are indulged or crushed depends in part on whether their demos and lawsuits are aimed at obstructing the global governance agenda or advancing it."
    How the World Really Works
  • "The same climate policies that are set to destroy private agriculture in the Netherlands are eventually coming to America."
    Pay Attention To The Dutch Farmer Protests Because America Is Next
  • Victor Davis Hanson: "Are today’s norms tomorrow’s norms?"
    Are the New Progressive Rules Reciprocal?
  • "That 1992 event should have taught Americans that the government was out of control, but it didn’t, and we continue to live with the consequences."
