Good morning, kids. Monday and I don’t think I’ve had a more profound sense of dread in my life about what the next few days and afterward might have in store. About the only times that come close were the morning after Election Day and then 12 days ago on Black Wednesday, with Election Day 2008 bringing up the rear. In a bit less than 54 hours from the time of this post, the darkest, most malignant and dangerous enemy our nation, such as it was, had ever faced will seize power once and for all and never let go. Neither willingly nor, I fear, peacefully if at all. That enemy as Abraham Lincoln prophesied decades before the strife that tore this nation apart in the first Civil war sprang up amongst us.
We all know what will happen the moment Zhou Bai-Din lift’s his filthy hand of The Bible and emits the words “so help me G-d” from a policy standpoint. We had more than a taste of it from 2009-2017. Blanket amnesty and instant citizenship alone for upwards of 30 million illegal aliens, and open borders for millions more mean not only further societal and cultural dissolution, but a permanent political majority for the Enemy’s Democrat Party. On the bright side, at least you can be assured that elections will never again be rigged. Mostly because when Florida and Texas turn blue, they won’t have to be.
For the past 50-60 years if not longer, the illusion of comity between the two main political and cultural factions, strained and often punctuated by bitter and sometimes violent confrontation, was maintained despite the vicissitudes of electoral politics. What everyone except the most perceptive of individuals failed to realize was that the rot had become so pervasive and so all encompassing that our house divided is now crashing down around us. We are now at a point where actual repression and persecution based on any political belief or opinion that contravenes the accepted meme of “Left = Good, Right = Evil” is not only acceptable but is demanded.
This is based on the so-called “riot” that took place on January 6th at the Capitol. As thousands of peaceful, patriotic Americans gathered to demonstrate their opposition to the certification of a stolen election, a few dozen or so Leftist confederates dressed in MAGA gear (and not very convincingly either) were allowed in by Capitol Police and other insiders, caused a ruckus and broke a few windows. Not exactly the Reichstag Fire in terms of actual damage, the cold-blooded execution of Ashli Babbit by an as yet unknown party notwithstanding. But the pretext was tailor-made to blood-libel two thirds of the nation as well as the President they support. So now, with January 20th almost upon us, is it just me or does anyone else think that another staged event of “right wing fascist white supremacist violence” is about to happen?
The failure to have any semblance of adequate security, despite apparent FBI warnings of possible trouble, is one of the baffling aspects of that day. It’s why the Chief of the Capitol Police has resigned, and there needs to be a thorough investigation of how the Mayor of D.C. and others rejected requests for additional help.
Yet what is happening in D.C. now looks more like a military defensive posture than riot control or even an attempt to defend against small groups planning violence.
There are the National Guard troops, and bridges to the city will be shut on Tuesday. The 8-ft non-scalable fences around the Capitol are being replaced with 12-foot fencing. US Citizen and Immigration Services is closing its offices for two days.
AirBnb has declared a moratorium on people coming into the city using their services. Facebook has banned the creation of new event pages for D.C. It’s likely these private entities took these actions at the request of security agencies…
…There are some possibilities. One is that this is a deliberate overreaction as a show of force to deter anyone even thinking about causing a problem. In a rational world, given the Capitol Hill riot, that would be an obvious explanation.
But this massive military show of force smacks of protecting against a threat that has not yet been disclosed publicly. They seem to be planning against a military mutiny. That’s how it feels.
Something’s happening here, what it is ain’t exactly clear.
If there is some sort of Enemy action to remove Zhou Bai-Din and install Kamala-Toe or whomever, it’s completely unnecessary. The Democrats and their RINO stooges can 25th Amendment his ass the hell out of there in a heartbeat. He’s a puppet as it is and will go wherever Obama and Jarrett kick him. What I fear is some act being used as a pretext to declare a national emergency and shut down ALL voices of opposition. That includes not only the handful of patriots like Josh Hawley in Congress but this here website and all the others that are practicing actual journalism.
The sad truth is, given the brainwashing inflicted on at least two to three generations of Americans in the schools, the reinforcement of the messaging in the media and culture, the will to power of our elected politicians, the befehl ist befehl attitude of far too many in law enforcement and the rubber stamp of a corrupt judiciary, a pretext to “destroy the Constitution in order to save it” seems unnecessary. Then again, JFK was much more of an effective tool for the left in death than he ever was for his thousand days in the Oval Office.
Of course, there is always the possibility of DC being turned into an armed camp means the military is going to pull a Pinochet and ride to the rescue of President Trump and the nation. If you believe that, I have a bridge over the East River I can sell you. Cheap.
