A Suspended State of Animation.
I don't get it.
There is a public uproar over the discovery of Top Secret documents in and around the private spaces of Joe Biden. People on both sides of the political aisle are suggesting "this is serious"! There are suggestions that this "controversy" may cause Biden to withdraw from running for a second "term".
Though most of the documents are over 5 years old, and were found sitting pretty much out in the open, some Republicans are comparing the way the Justice Department and the media are treating this as a "double standard" after the FBI raided Trump's residence using heavy armor and swat team tactics, for documents that the former President had already declassified (as Presidents are legally empowered to do).
Now some Democrats are calling for a Justice Department "investigation" of Biden and his careless handling of highly secret materials. And some are suggesting this entire episode is just another underground effort to push Kamala Harris into the Oval Office.
What bothers me is that all of this is just another psyop. It is a purposeful obfuscation to distract everyone from the real injustice. The real crime of treason. The most complex and sophisticated non-wartime military operation and political revolution in the history of mankind. The complete and utter usurpation of legitimacy of the 2020 Presidential election.
For two years the Biden administration has been focused on covering up the COVID19 biowarfare attack, and the resulting coordinated government offensive to undermine the economy, the elections, and the regular operations of the rule of law. It is happening to some degree or another, all over the world, but it has manifested itself with a total and complete coup d'etat in Washington DC.
Why are citizens so upset about actions of a bumbling old man, when the evidence is overwhelming that that bumbling old man is nothing other than a Sock Puppet whose sole reason for being is to keep the public distracted from the implementations of Far Leftist Progressives to establish the final beachhead for Communist Rule across the North and South American continents.
One by one the Communists are taking down any semblance of populace governments: Venezuela, Nicaragua, Brasil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and of course the Mafia State of Mexico. We can look northward to Canada and see how entrenched the leftists are, and how Premier Trudeax has completely ignored the will of the people and the rule of law.
America is the Last Republic Standing.
We Americans are too easily distracted, too preoccupied by work and entertainment, to see the forest for the trees. We have been overwhelmed by Media Gaslighting to see what is so obvious: This administration is completely incompetent to run a nation. They have trashed the economy, our schools, our manufacturing and any trust we had left in our healthcare system. And they are fostering a climate of lawlessness, social unrest and anti-Americanism.
For the Far Left Progressive Jihad to be successful they must keep the illusion alive that America is still a Democratic Republic, where the will of the people rules. As long as that public image persists, they will push for reordering everything about our country that is American.
Just as Progressives insist on redefining much of the English language to normalize everything from "Race Riots" (Peaceful Protests) to "Child Abuser" (Minor Attracted Person), they have redefined the right to vote. Now, that embodies unsigned ballots, votes by illegal immigrants, felons and dead people, votes that are cast after the election, and ballot harvesting. Not to mention voting machines that are connected to the internet despite laws forbidding such dangerous opportunities for corruption.
Federal institutions aren't even pretending to be "transparent" anymore. They are single mindedly concerned with maintaining the illusion that the Sock Puppet is a legitimate political leader. A true leader who has the best interests of America and Americans as his sole motivation. And now they are actively categorizing the opposition as "terrorists".
The most important, and dangerous issue before Americans has to be the reality that our government institutions are in the hands of hijackers. That America is under siege and every aspect of our heritage, our freedoms and rights, are currently in a suspended state of animation.
January 12th, 2023
On his Podcast today, Dan Bongino said he is really frightened (about what is happening to our country). Here is an excerpt from my eBook "f'd: For Your Own Good" published last May:
Americans enjoy an immense amount of freedom because the Constitution of the United States protects our God-given right to speak freely, to gather and associate without government intimidation, and to express our opinions. The Constitution doesn't qualify that freedom. It doesn't distinguish between self serving, petty or ill-informed speech. It doesn't mention pedantic or hate speech. Americans don't have to meet any litmus tests to exercise our freedoms.
Our Constitution also protects us from assaults on our person or property by anyone violating laws written and adopted by the legislative branch of our government. It does not authorize renegade, self appointed authorities to enforce their own rules. The Constitution defines a process for establishing community standards through legal review based on case history by the Judicial Branch of our government. Citizens challenging other citizens to exercise their brains and to promote social lubrication are symbolic of everything good about Americanism. It is a beautiful thing!
I am a big boy and I don't get frightened easily, but I am now. Because in just a few short years it has become increasingly acceptable to ignore the Constitution, to attack alternative viewpoints and to attack, shame, impugn or even arrest certain groups of people. The most ubiquitous form of social intercourse, social media, has become an enforcement arm of a certain political viewpoint. Just last year Twitter had the audacity to suspend the account of the President of the United States! This should have outraged every American, but it didn't.
Suddenly it has become acceptable practice for media platforms to censor opinions and to restrict access to information. Major corporations and academic institutions are using litmus tests to measure "Wokeness". People are going to jail, careers and reputations are being ruined. The largest book publisher in the world is making value judgments on who they will publish and who they won't. This behavior is not only anti-American, it is 21st century Fascism.
"Wokeness" disregards the principles that our nation was founded on. Measuring a person's "acceptability" is a litmus test. It may not look like the totalitarianism of Mao Zedong or Joseph Stalin, but left unchecked, it will become a junta sooner rather than later. That is why the Founding Fathers implemented a different form of representative government as an alternative to a pure Democracy.
The North Koreans have become so completely hypnotized by their abusive leadership that they worship their absolutism. That kind of psychological grooming is a hallmark of Communism. Americans are starting to move in that direction as academia, entertainment, news and social media information systems fall increasingly in line with a GroupThink "Woke" political dogma.
Instead of using machine guns and gulags, the 21st century Woke Fascists use social pressure to enforce conformity. And because people going about their everyday life, struggling to make ends meet, don't see an armed militia occupying their communities, they look the other way.
By any measure it has become near normal for authorities to demand conformity. They couch their authoritarianism as "Public Health'' measures, but who defines those terms?
In California, Governor Gavin Newsom mandated draconian mask requirements, forcing business and church closures, shutting down small "non-essential" businesses, all based on his claim that there was a Public Health Emergency that gave him unlimited powers. Unfortunately no one pointed out that the clause he based his claims on emphatically requires the health threat, in this case a virus, must exceed "normal annual disease death rates". Statistics have consistently shown that statewide, and even nationwide, annual death rates have not varied by more than 1% in many years! The Wuhan Virus never reached required variance levels because it never exceeded flu death rates that have occurred many times in the past. But that fact was never discussed because Newsom has complete control over a sympathetic press and all levers of power in California. He is the leader of a Democratic fiefdom.
If you look at the history of California politics, you might conclude that the state was/is conservative. It led the way in election reform, passing the Fair Political Practices Committee Proposition 9 in 1974. Prop 9 was a plan to clean up secretive contributions, expose backroom lobbying deals, conflicts of interest and corruption, and eliminate the use of public funds for campaigns. For the next dozen years the California legislature passed laws to increase voter awareness of who was funding and participating in political campaigns. All of the new laws were intended to increase transparency.
In the early 90's, California passed a series of reforms to reduce corporate influence by closing the "Revolving Door" that allowed former government employees from moving laterally to high paying corporate positions immediately following the end of their public service.
In 1978 California passed Proposition 13, a controversial tax limitation law that was designed to protect seniors who naturally would need to downsize their homes as they aged. It limited the amount of assessed property value so that over time the homeowner could not be displaced by annual property tax increases. It eventually led to a nationwide taxpayer revolt, causing other states to follow suit. Some say it led to the election of Ronaldus Maxis, later to become the 39th president of the United States.
Later California voters passed 13 additional anti-tax measures, which led to the concept of "The Third Rail" in politics: A subject that no politician will ever challenge. It could also be construed as the backbone of the Republican Brand.
In 1994 California passed the Three Strikes Sentencing Law. Essentially, it required "a defendant convicted of any new felony, having suffered one prior conviction of a serious felony to be sentenced to state prison for twice the term otherwise provided for the crime. If the defendant was convicted of any felony with two or more prior strikes, the law mandated a state prison term of at least 25 years to life. This revolutionized law enforcement, but it also brought about an enormous increase in incarceration rates. Crime dropped but the prisons quickly became overcrowded. Once again Californians demonstrated a serious conservative, law and order conscience.
In 2000 California adopted Proposition 22, which supported the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, passed in Congress under the administration of Bill Clinton. It forbad licensing or recognition of same-sex marriages in the state of California. After many challenges and legal rulings that tempered its viability, the state then proposed Prop 8, which amended the state constitution, making the "defense of marriage" a California landmark decision. The measure passed with a 52% majority vote.
It didn't take long for federal courts to step in and declare Prop 8 unconstitutional.
My point is, that ever since that point in time, California has acted as if it underwent a frontal lobotomy. It suddenly turned into one of the most liberal states in the nation.
Or did it?
It frightens me to think that there is a strong possibility that the Progressive Jihad, which was acting in concert with California labor and educational unions and the increasingly powerful academic community, and using its increasing high tech community political powers, especially with regard to electronic vote processing, has usurped the integrity of the election process and installed a Democratic Cabal in Sacramento.
Every piece of legislation since 2008 has focused on pandering to unions, to the LGBTQ community, on fleecing the taxpayer to fund government employee pensions, to subsidize rapid transit, to undermine fossil fuel production and use, to redistribute wealth to minority communities and interest groups and to keep Republicans from ever getting elected to any public office in the state ever again.
You have to ask yourself, how did the electorate suddenly change its conscience so dramatically? It didn't transition into a Progressive electorate, it went dramatically left in just a matter of one election cycle.
A non-partisan volunteer group called the Election Integrity Project, which has been monitoring the election process in California for the past ten consecutive years, has found dozens of irregularities in every election since 2010. Using teams of volunteers to watch voting booths, to analyze voting data, and to challenge election law violations, they have uncovered a serious and systemic amount of fraud and mismanagement of statewide elections that point to a concerted effort to compromise the integrity and authenticity of California's elections.
As a California resident and voter since 1974, I have often wondered why the outcomes so often clash with common sense. In the past two decades California has watched nearly every election defy reality. No one wants housing costs to go up, yet every bit of legislation coming out of Sacramento adds to the cost of acquiring, titling and building on land in our state. Californians love our mobility, yet Sacramento has said they want no gas powered vehicles in our state by 2035. California used to have the finest educational institutions in America, but now they are full of angry Marxists who hate America and constantly raise tuition, eliminate merit based advancement, and attack people who have the audacity to speak out about reverse racism and ideological persecution. Oh, and by the way, "we need more taxpayer support" or your children will suffer!
I am frightened by the destruction of the Golden State, the rusting of the vision of what California has always stood for: It is a place where dreams come true if you are willing to work hard and make the sacrifices necessary to succeed.
Look at the homelessness that is overrunning cities like San Francisco, Venice Beach, Los Angeles, Anaheim and San Diego. The population of displaced, drug addled and psychologically damaged people is growing exponentially, while the state is simultaneously watching millions of its most productive citizens leave for other, more stable and less restrictive states. They are going where they still have buying power, where they can build a business, go to church and send their kids to public schools that don't alienate them from their parents.
I am frightened by a government that values illegal burglars more than it does its own citizens. I have a friend who recently got married in Germany. Her husband has applied for a visa, as they want to bring their newborn back to California to be raised near Grandma and Grandpa. He has been told it may take up to 2 years to get approval. I told them, "just fly into Tijuana Airport and walk across the border." She is a citizen and no one will challenge his citizenship. And even if they do, he will be immediately released on his own recognizance and told to come back later to schedule an immigration hearing, but they will not even ask him where is going or how he can be reached! Voila, he is here and he can start looking for a job immediately because in California it is illegal to ask anyone about their immigration status…
When your own state prefers to help illegals, refuses to help psychologically damaged veterans, provides healthcare and Planned Parenthood services for foreigners, allows them to drive without insurance and refuses to hold anyone accountable for the crimes they commit, it is nothing less than anarchy.
I have spent significant time in Baja California, and marveled at its inherent natural beauty. The people are super nice and resilient. But, they live in a world of anarchy. It amazes me how they have learned to cope. I have over the years had three friends murdered in Baja. All for no other reason but to steal their jewelry or their wallets.
This is what happens when the value of human life gets reduced to the value of your purse or your watch. When people become hopeless and desperate, when resentment and anger overcome decency and humanity, our options are to protect ourselves or simply run away.
California has returned to the Wild Wild West, and there is no Sheriff willing to protect the citizens. I am frightened...
The Perfect Straw Man
Do you understand the intelligence community's secrecy protocol commonly referred to as "Need To Know" (N2K)? Individuals involved in an intelligence operation are only given the information they 'need to know' to fulfill their specific role. They seldom know all of the players involved, or what the total goal is, or any of the tangential elements of the team. It is a tactic designed to give the operation the best possible environment to complete the mission.
N2K is a proven system to protect everyone involved. If the operation gets compromised at some point, only one individual or segment of the operation gets shut down. The remaining pieces can make adjustments and continue to function.
The N2K protocol is especially important during clandestine efforts to undermine or quietly sabotage an opponent. If, for example, a team was set up to undermine an election. It would make sense to target a specific election process, i.e, ballot collections, ballot printing, counting or adjudication). It would make sense to have each Operations Team Member be highly skilled in their particular role, and to keep them in their own lane.
My question is, would the candidate themself, if their particular election was targeted, have to be in on the operation? Would they "need to know" that they were being "installed"?
Absolutely not! In fact, if you look at the vulnerabilities of such a clandestine operation, letting the candidate in on it would exponentially increase the risk of discovery. That person has no need to know. They are only a spoke in the wheel, and the mission is to keep them rolling along without any indication of a problem.
If you were part of a team to assure the election of Joe Biden to become the next President of the United States, you would make sure he knew nothing about it. He is terrible at keeping secrets. He is known for his loose lips. And if you were part of an effort to make sure he ascended to the White House, you would also appreciate what a perfect Straw Man Biden is. He is so preoccupied with his own vanity, with the accolades of his election success, and with implementing what he is convinced is good for the Nation, he would never stop to question the veracity of his election.
Therefore, if Joe had no knowledge of any election tomfoolery, it would make sense that he would have nothing but disdain for anyone who suggests he isn't the "Real" President. He would get angry with anyone who wants to deny his success, his accomplishment, and his legacy. He is a proud man, so obviously he would be confident that he won the election fair and square. Watch how genuinely angry he gets when the subject of election corruption comes up!
That absolutism is what makes Biden the Perfect Straw Man.
I can forgive a Straw Man who doesn't directly benefit from his role, and who had no direct knowledge of the deception in which he inadvertently played a role. But when a Straw Man assumes a vast amount of power, then wields it arrogantly, I have no empathy for his vacuous innocence. Power is a drug, so when a Straw Man suddenly acquires massive power and then wields it recklessly, with no sense of restraint, he becomes a rogue element.
Biden is acting like a dictator. He is flagrantly ignoring the media and mocking the Republican opposition. As his ratings plummet you would think he might try to reconcile with some voters, but instead he is doubling down on the notion that he was given a mandate.
For the Operations Team, he is being a useful idiot on steroids (literally). And since they are privy to the fact that Biden was not given a mandate, they are racing to implement as much of their radical New Green Deal agenda as they can before the scheme is discovered.
The time will come when Biden's usefulness will be expendable. My guess is that time will come sooner rather than later.
Detached From Reality
We talk about how the country is divided, and it appears there is no way to bridge the emotional and intellectual gap between our citizens. We tend to refer to each other as "extreme lefties" or "extreme righties". No longer do we use generic handles like Liberal or Conservative. Even worse, we are increasingly attaching diabolical characteristics to groups that support certain causes. Folks that were formally referred to as "Pro-Life" are now called "Antiwomen Fascists" and Pro-Choice supporters are called "Baby Killers".
And on top of that, using powerful influential tools like social media we cancel, or purge selected persons and businesses, and effectively sentence them to social purgatory.
If you ask those involved if they consider their actions to be acceptable behavior, they will, on both sides, declare they are just doing what the other side is doing. It is a circular firing squad.
It would be reasonable to conclude that everyone is detached from reality because they can't all be behaving correctly. The key point is that "in their own minds" they think they are justified and righteous.
Some would say they have been brainwashed. That would be a misinterpretation of the term. Brainwashing wipes the slate clean, and then replaces the data with new data. Victims of true brainwashing seldom remember anything about their past experiences or relationships.
In most of these social interactions and conflicts, both parties still retain most of their original programming. In other words, if their parents were liberals, they remain liberals. Same for conservatives. But in the interim, something has corrupted their mental data processing system. Their minds are different now because their algorithms have been altered. The way they process information, store and regurgitate it, has been affected.
I would argue that most of us have been hacked. We are all having our brain's data processing code rewritten. But we are not conscious of the process because it is happening subconsciously.
We are, as a culture, predisposed to get most of our information from electronic displays on our personal electronic devices such as television, computers and cell phones. As a percentage of the total amount of information we process, in the past two decades, that would have to exceed 90%. Very few people sit down and read magazines and newspapers anymore. Few walk into libraries to spend time researching anything. Google is our digital library and YouTube is our modern school house.
So why is this process so effective at reordering our brain, and changing the way we perceive the data we are seeing?
When we read, we are effectively speaking to ourselves. We internalize the dialogue. It is essentially a lateral form of data absorption. We determine when and how we apply value, emphasis, or dismissal of the data. We file it in a mental file, based on what quality and value we give it.
Conversely, when we receive data from visual sources, we tend to give all of it similar value and validity. It is multimedia, arriving as visual, audio and sometimes tactile form, it overrides our own internal narration. The data is absorbed in the same way we taste food: It is processed in a multilateral way. It is an emotional experience, as opposed to an intellectual experience.
Our nervous system uses different pathways to process multilateral experiences. Why is this important to the current status of our ability to code information inside our brains?
Those multilateral pathways are not designed to analyze and divide the data into critical files. They are designed to steer that data into sensory sensitive areas of the brain. That is how we "feel" or "taste" things. So important intellectual data that needs to be studied and critically reviewed, and separated into "real" and "unreal" files, instead gets sent to sensory files designed to "enjoy" or "reject".
Our current "modern" culture is saturated in data, but only the "Feel Good" stuff is getting processed and stored. That in itself distorts what we think and how we react to new information. Over time, mass culture changes its moral standards. It starts revolving around the experiences that feel good and rejects anything that interferes with those "rosie scenarios".
The old saying "if you don't use it, you'll lose it" applies to the neurological pathways that our brain uses to process "difficult" data. Stuff that requires serious study, analysis, and examination, when unconsciously ignored, not only deprives us of vital decision making data, but by avoidance, stunts the brain's ability to "code" it altogether.
Perhaps we are blaming our schools for undereducating students, when in fact, it is the students "coding system" that is producing citizens with no critical thinking skills. Instead of embracing the difficult arenas of politics and religion, of marriage and child rearing, and of managing their personal environment, they instead focus their energies on self-aggrandizement and entertainment.
Thus, millions of humans are growing increasingly detached from reality.
The Real Climate Crisis
I believe there is a significant relationship between the upbringing of children and how they later form relationships. Since I am a father, I consider this my domain. I also believe the world, and especially America, is facing a colossal crisis: Too many children are being sent into dangerous atmospheric social conditions without the tools and experiences they need to survive. The overall climate for our children to succeed, to procreate and build a peaceful world, is seriously polluted.
Our schools are pushing hard to install attitudes of acceptance and tolerance. Yet hate crimes, bullying, antisemitism, and blatant racial animosity are exploding all around the world. It is as if the policies and polemic against social injustice are backfiring. We have given the burden to soothe our culture to our children, and they are struggling to implement it.
This is nothing less than a failure of parenting. Schools can help, but the initiation of being loved, of being protected and of having a future, must be instilled at the earliest years and it must come from those most intimately connected to the child.
Each year an estimated 800K children simply disappear off the face of the Earth. Why isn't this crime against humanity constantly front page news? How can we consider ourselves civilized if our children live in fear? No children are immune from the threat of abduction. As the economy shrinks and the standards for employment increase, millions of young disoriented kids turn to black market industries, indirectly introducing themselves into the dark underbelly of sexual exploitation.
Some would say our modern culture is better because we are more tolerant and open to a variety of family structures. They suggest single parenting, homosexual parenting, or even unstructured family formats are all well suited to develop successful and loving next generation families.
In my experience, every woman I have known that had hang-ups over intimacy, eventually reveals some sort of childhood abuse. Every man that demonstrates physical abuse towards women, typically experienced abuse as a child, usually by a parent or a relative. Obviously the human psyche is complicated and I am not trying to over-simplify what is a significant social epidemic, but there is a pattern that emerges: Strong, stable, and close families seldom encounter dangerous anomalies. Kids don't run away from love and acceptance, and they don't turn violent if they have never experienced violence.
Kids who experience unconditional love are better prepared to extend the same kind of intimacy later in life. Clearly there are exceptions, and we all know that kids raised in the same family don't always exhibit the same kind of behaviors. But the chances are much better that those kinds of experiences will result in more balanced and self reliant young adults.
According to many so-called experts, the rate of violence towards children correlates closer with fatherlessness rather than poverty. We know, for example, 63% of all youth suicides, 70% of all teen pregnancies, 71% of all adolescent chemical/substance abusers, 80% of all prison inmates, and 90% of all homeless and runaway children, came from fatherless homes (Chuck Colson, "How Shall We Live?").
"Growing up without a father could permanently alter the structure of the brain, and produce more children who are more aggressive and angry. Children brought up only by a single mother have a higher risk of developing deviant behavior, including drug abuse" (Dr. Gabriella Gobbi, McGill University/Francis Bamlico, Center for Addiction and Mental Health).
The numbers don't lie. The War On Drugs failed miserably. Childhood suicide has skyrocketed. Children are unaccounted for. While single mom birth rates are up, overall birth rates are down. Childhood homelessness and poverty are growing exponentially. Too many men refuse to be held accountable for their impregnations, and women have fallen out of love with motherhood and femininity.
The family unit is in a free fall. Our real climate crisis is the toxic environment we have created for our children by abandoning the Nuclear Family Unit.
