I got THE zombie apocalypse phone call yesterday

Yesterday I got a phone call from a man I knew in my teens, named Sam. The call from Sam was THE zombie apocalypse call, and if you are an American and you have anything of value to lose in your possession, you would do well to pay attention to the following telling of our conversation.

Although Sam and I have not spoken directly in about thirty years, he has been in and out of my family (the one I grew up in, not the one I am raising) in different roles, like business partner, religious leadership (Quaker), social friends. So although Sam and I have not actually seen one another for a long time, we have been aware of one another for a long time. It would therefore be natural, no big stretch, for him to pick up the phone and call me, which he did, from southeastern Pennsylvania, a location not far away from my own.

But Sam called without first ascertaining that I was still a Quaker, and that as such I still adhered to Quaker beliefs like pacifism/non-violence/ liberal anti-America treason, and socialism. And so Sam launched into a description of his work, and he made an effort to recruit me to participate in it. I could not believe what I was hearing, and with my heart beating faster than usual, I bit hard on my tongue and just listened.

Sam told me that for fifteen years he has been a professional social justice organizer, for one of the groups funded by George Soros. He is presently recruiting people for what he calls “mass direct action” protests across America, to begin the day after Election Day and into the weeks beyond, as needed.

“Sit-ins, block traffic, block businesses, strikes, mass civil disobedience and unrest all across America, all non-violent,” Sam said. His definition of non-violent is probably different than most people’s definition, because after all, he is using force, ‘direct action’ force, which means stopping people from moving, working etc. Coercion by another name.

Sam’s goal is to force President Donald Trump from office, regardless of the election outcome.

Why force, and why not rely on the election?

Sam said if Trump wins, it’s only through election fraud. There is no scenario where Sam and his friends will accept Trump winning the election. And if Trump refuses to accept his defeat (which could include the various partisan networks declaring the election for Biden even when Trump has won), the mass protests and strikes and civil unrest etc will be necessary to force Trump from office, Sam said.

In other words, my 72-year-old hippie friend refuses to accept election results that he doesn’t like just because he doesn’t like them. In fact, he is working to confuse those results, so that at best no clear winner can be determined or declared, and so the election outcome will be resolved by anarchy and street mobs, forcing the resolution into the US House and the courts. Basically Sam wants to bring Seattle and Portland street warfare and destruction nationwide, to your city, your neighborhood.

Only after giving me his sales pitch did he stop to ask if my political views align with his. Boy was he surprised that the young kid he remembered had now grown up to disavow all the destructive beliefs that had once been shoved down my throat by similar “well-intentioned” leftists. He was shocked that I have donated about $2,000 to the Trump campaign. Thank you, Sam, I enjoyed your reaction, and today I donated again to the Martha McSally campaign, just for good measure.

And so then we had a refreshingly and brutally honest discussion about what his “organizing” means, and the kinds of negative outcomes that are likely to result from it, like the violence he says he is opposed to. Sam said he is non-violent, but he cannot take responsibility for violence that occurs alongside his “95% peaceful” protests. He also blamed “right wing agitators” for all the leftist destruction we have witnessed with our own eyes across the nation this year, which is either an outright lie or extreme self-deception.

Sam also says he is opposed to all guns, to all private gun ownership, that no one should have any guns, that hunting is illegitimate and unnecessary, and people trying to defend themselves against “unarmed” mobs are morally incorrect. So a disarmed citizenry is also Sam’s goal.

Sam asked if I would shoot him during one of his “95% peaceful” protests, even if he doesn’t have a gun, and I responded “If I feel like you or your mob are threatening me, my home, my family, then yes, I will defend myself.” And he then said he thought conflict would be inevitable. So his anarchy is actually a violent confrontation that will lead to more violence? Who would have guessed?

We learned a few things from my phone call from Sam the anti-America agitator:

  • Doublespeak is alive and well, meaning that when Sam says he is non-violent, it really means that he will provide thin moral cover for the violent murderers, looters, and arsonists who accompany him in his massive civil disobedience against fair American elections.
  • When Sam says he doesn’t believe in private gun ownership, he means he wants us all disarmed, so that he can do whatever he wants to us with his mob of felonious villains afterwards.
  • When the election outcomes and rules favor Sam’s personal desires and his political views, then the outcomes and the rules must be defended with massive street battles. But when and if the election outcomes and the rules end up favoring his political opponent, then the outcome and the rules must be challenged and thrown out, with massive street battles.
  • The obviously fake surveys and polls being published by mainstream media outlets, most declaring Biden impossibly far in the lead, might be a pretext for the same media outlets declaring Bidehhhh the winner on Election Night, or at least for them to say that Trump could never have won the election, and thereby casting the results into doubt and confusion…and into anarchy.
  • America is under assault from within. Enemies of democracy and freedom are operating freely within our borders, unchecked, unchallenged. Democracy is not a suicide pact, and treason is not free speech. So many Americans seem to erroneously believe that America is too big to fail, and so they pop a cold beer, throw some hamburgers on the grill, and sit back to watch a sports event, without getting involved politically, even though they are needed. America might not yet be failing, but America’s system of governance and economy is being sorely tested right now. God grant us success in preserving our Union, our liberties, our unique Republic.
  • Gentlemen, prepare to defend yourselves, your homes, your families, your communities. The zombie horde is coming soon to your neighborhood

The Democrat Party left me, I did not leave the Democrat Party

Following the ancient dictum of “If you are conservative when you are young, you have no heart, and if you are liberal when you are old, you have no brain,” I was once a registered Democrat.

Long ago, in my early twenties.

True, I was from central Pennsylvania, where the differences between the Democrats and the Republicans (and everyone else) were barely noticeable. The Democrats were the union guys who worked in the coal mines, and a lot of farmers who depended on government crop insurance programs; the Republicans were the mine owners and managers, the small business owners.

But everyone drove the same pickup trucks with an American flag and an NRA sticker. Everyone was full-throated do-or-die patriotic over America. No question. Everyone owned guns. It was the odd home out there that did not have any guns, and in fact, I cannot think of any homes where I grew up that did not have at least a handful of firearms. At least one was a .410 shotgun kept by the back door for starlings, groundhogs, and crows in the garden. Guns were as practical as any other tool in the home.

So in 1988, I was the Al Gore for President campaign’s central Pennsylvania coordinator. Way way back in 1988, you know, before the last Ice Age, Al Gore was an NRA-endorsed, pro-life conservative. His party affiliation was almost irrelevant. He was my kind of guy. And he cared about the environment, in which I like to hunt and fish.

And then the creeping, seeping radical anti-America 1960s politics caught up with even the rural areas, including Tennessee, which then-Senator Al Gore, Jr., lost, after running for president as a kook-Left Democrat. Gore even lost his senate seat.

That is because by the early 1990s, most of America’s rural Democrats started becoming former Democrats, and abandoning the political party that had so suddenly abandoned them.

Fast forward to today, and the Democrat Party is not your grandfather’s Democrat Party. Gone is the patriotism, the pride in America. Hell, even the loyalty to America is gone.

Instead, the Democrat Party has now become a witch’s brew of treason, sedition, anarchy, political violence, lawless political opportunism, and blame-America-for-everything Marxism.

That political party now stands for illegal alien invaders over American citizen taxpayers; for illegal alien invaders over secure borders and secure families inside the borders; for sanctuary cities over the rule of law; for bureaucracy over freedom; for vague feelings of supposedly aggrieved groups over the Constitution’s guarantee of individual rights and liberties for everyone. And so on. There is very little to nothing that the Democrat Party stands for today that is good for America. Pretty much everything the party stands for today is anti-America.

I am pro-America. It is the best nation on the face of the planet, bar none. It has created the greatest amount of opportunity for the greatest variety and number of people of any nation in history. If this is not good enough for you, then America is probably not the right place for you. On the other hand, America is more than good enough for me; I worship America. I am staying here, and I will defend her.

I did not leave the Democrat Party, the Democrat Party left me. Hell, the Democrat Party abandoned America, completely.

 

 

Britannia, Rule Britannia

Any institution that disregards a substantial native resource that is accessible and usable is shooting itself in the foot. Plenty of companies and governments make the mistake of missing out on key resources – human, material, or other – and are the poorer for it. They also know they must constantly be on the watch for it, and correct it.

When it happens to a private company, the company is less competitive than it could be, less profitable than it should be. The profit motive keeps companies sharp and on the lookout.

When this disregard occurs happens to a nation with its leadership, it is criminal, and unfortunately, there is no built-in measure or quantifiable yard stick. While many people will keep going and going as a nation ails until they and it go over a cliff, there are others who have long, old, and wise vision, and who would sail the ship of state into calmer, better waters. To ignore their leadership qualities is to waste the best resource a nation has. Democracy is the constant battle between these forces of cold comfort and patriotic ambition.

Take England as a bright and shining example of a great nation that is self-destructing by deliberately excluding its best leadership.

By any measure, material or intellectual, England is one of the world’s greatest civilizations ever achieved.

Begun and long run as a monarchy (like every other part of the world), a might-makes-right social structure with barons, dukes, counts, and attendant aristocrats to whom power and wealth naturally flowed (like every other part of the world), and a large underclass of poorly educated laborers barely able to survive (like every other part of the world), England today is in some ways a good example of meritocracy. More opportunity exists for more people. Democracy has largely worked.

The monarchy’s political wings have been clipped, the aristocracy was purposefully driven from the public square, and the most Marxist punitive measures possible were instituted to steal generational wealth so that any semblance of monarchical or aristocratic England would be eliminated.

As a result of these artificial policies, the National Trust now owns more castles and great halls than do private families, and some of England’s best natural landscapes (the natural environment) have been permanently damaged. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot!

One can argue that England is more of a meritocracy now than it was, but that is really difficult to prove, because the government is the new monarch. Isn’t it?

England’s bureaucracy is nothing short of an unassailable, unaccountable, unchangeable, singular power.

Few entrepreneurs really get ahead in England, because the regulations and taxes are so damning; holding on to generational wealth is nigh impossible, due to the death taxes designed to strip successful people of their rewards. A universally low-income population is the new goal of the English bureaucracy.

Even worse, some of England’s greatest personalities, strongest patriots, most well educated and biggest thinkers have been purposefully marginalized. These people are the residual aristocrats, the heirs to the dregs of the monarchical system that actually produced England’s greatest generations in WWI and WWII.

Can anyone imagine an Admiral Jacky Fisher or Admiral Roger Keyes rising to lead England, today?

My grandmother is rolling over in her grave as I write this, but MomMom, times change.  Nations change. Needs change. My  grandmother (MomMom) Jane was a true-blue Daughter of the American Revolution, a fierce advocate for meritocracy and a fierce opponent of monarchy or aristocracy.  She raised us all on stories of the American revolution, its just response to the unfairness of aristocratic England, and the cruelty of King George.

But today, things have really changed. Those old symmetries and forces no longer exist, and in their place have arisen other forms of monarchy and repression. England today is wracked by a lack of social structure or universal national standards, by anarchy masquerading as government. A huge vacuum space has opened up, and the entire nation could implode.

Today in the place of King George is a cruel and tyrannical English bureaucracy and judiciary, that rules the English citizens as though they were serfs. Very little due process, no free speech, and ambiguous political correctness as the new unattainable measure. Say the wrong the thing, write the wrong thing online? Off with your head!

It is time for England to return to its greatness. To do so, she must draw upon one of her greatest and most ignored human resources, to resurrect many of her finest patriots, her most committed citizens, and employ them in leading the nation away from the brink on which it stands, and back to greatness. This would involve tapping into the aging aristocrats who remember a truly Great Britain, and who would Make Britain Great Again.

We have all learned over the past 250 years that monarchy is not such a good thing, and we have also learned that politically correct Marxism is just as arbitrary and anti-freedom as any monarch. The solution to what ails England today lies in the collective wisdom and patriotism of England’s best elders, the last connection to a truly Great Britain (not necessarily a Greater Britain); its aristocrats who care the most about the most English.

It is time Britannia, it is time for Britannia to rule Britannia once again.

Or put it this way.

Judge, Jury, and Executioner…Judge, Congress, and President

Federal Judge Watson from Haw’aii has demonstrated a passion for power far beyond his designated duties, but similar to the recent approach of the Venezuelan court.

How?

First he ignored US law and the US Constitution, and ruled against an executive order over which he had zero jurisdiction.

Then he actually stipulated details in his holding, as if he had written a law passed by Congress and signed by the president.

Then, after the US Supreme Court overturned his holding, he immediately accepted a new, repeat appeal of the same executive order that the US Supreme Court had just upheld, and then overturned the holding of the US Supreme Court, actually once again throwing in new requirements as if he had just written a law.

Judge Watson is behaving exactly the opposite of how a federal judge is supposed to behave, and he is also directly challenging the authority of the the entire US government, and most worrying, the US Supreme Court, to whom you would think he had some shred of loyalty.

Judge Watson wants to be judge, jury and executioner. Or in these exact conditions, he wants to be judiciary, congress, and president. And he is acting just as he wants to be, despite our nation’s law and Constitution clearly prohibiting his actions.

Judge Watson wants to rule by fiat, by declaration.

Judge Watson wants to be a law unto himself, unaccountable even to his fellow judiciary.

Judge Watson is a rogue political actor, abusing the legal process clearly defined by our laws and Constitution, for the narrow purpose of advancing his political agenda.

Making Watson’s actions worse is the cheering section he has among millions of Americans, who care only for process when it suits their goals and caring for it not at all when it gets in the way of their goals.

This cheering section also cares not for abiding by laws they disagree with, and they will therefore use any source of power or authority they can find to contradict the laws that have passed through the procedure by which we all agree to live.

So they cheer on Judge Watson the anarchist judge.

That this is the most elementary anarchy and not just corrosive but destructive of America’s foundations seems not to deter the cheering section. It is the end of the rule of law.

“Win at any cost and in any way” is their motto.

How anyone can live harmoniously with this shattered approach to governance is anyone’s guess. This is exactly how the American Civil War began in 1860, and it may well lead to another civil war in 2017.

Making this situation worse is a president and a congress who believe in not only playing by the rules, but excusing every rule infraction of their opponents, with the silly notion that somehow their opponents (the cheering section for anarchist Judge Watson) will eventually come around and accept the fact that they lost an election and are not, therefore, able to consolidate power and control through yet more abuse of the system as they had planned.

Our current president could take a lesson from prior presidents, who, having had quite enough of over-reaching judges, simply encouraged those judges to go ahead and enforce their unconstitutional holdings in the face of a lawful president doing what he was elected to do, enabled by law and Constitution.

Lacking the means of enforcement, those overreaching judges were forced to simply watch events pass them by, having undermined their own authority by their own hand.

Our current Congress could take a lesson from past congresses, stop being such limp di#ks, and act out their Constitutional authority, such as impeaching and removing from the judicial bench those rogue judges who threaten to tear down the very society they are sworn to uphold and protect. Like anarchist Judge Watson.

Friends, none of us has an idea of how this is going to work out.

About a third of the nation is in open, violent rebellion in the streets, and in the few halls of power they still control, against established laws and against the Constitution.

About a third of the country is itching for a fight to get the first third back in line, because we cannot afford the high cost of these illegal antics.

And another third of the country is drinking beer, eating hamburgers, going to summertime baseball games, and wondering aloud when the other citizens are going to get this all worked out.

America is equally divided into thirds, perhaps in the potential roles as judges, juries, and executioners, or as judges, elected representatives, and chief executives.

We are very close to working this all out peacefully, if we all agree to just stay within those established roles, because then we will have restored the balance of power among the three co-equal branches of government that has always defined American government.

Now everyone line up into three lines, pick one line, and stay there. Then vote, and stick with the result like adults.

 

Good or bad, the cops have our backs

A society without a professional police force lacks the rule of law. No rule of law? No civilization.

Are there bad cops, violent cops, corrupt cops, abusive cops, escalating cops? Of course. I’ve seen it. Central Pennsylvania Attorney Devon Jacob has seen it, and he’s a former police officer who prosecutes police brutality. Even he says the bad cops are a minuscule fraction of the overall number.

Overall and overwhelmingly, the police across the nation are the best of the citizenry. They sacrifice their safety to bring a certainty to yours. Without police like American police, there’s no America. Not as we’ve come to know it.

That’s what gets me about the anti-police attitude so common now. What, you want anarchy?

Despite the fake and misplaced rage about criminals dying at the hands of the police they attacked, there is truth to the observation that police forces are too militarized. And too many police officers are quick to escalate situations to satiate an ego in need of control. These aren’t secrets and these are issues the left and the right agree on. It’s going to get resolved professionally through the political process.

The blips on the radar screen that get our attention most are momentary deviations from the standard behavior of nearly all police officers. The extremely high standard of care that the police in every community bring to all of us is second to none.

So, how any American identifies the police as the bad guys is beyond me. It’s a sign of deep cultural decay and failure. It’s time that stopped.
