America’s Existential Crisis

The Media is Destroying America

In late 2016, Scott Alexander–the man behind the blog “Slate Star Codex”–wrote a fantastic article ripping the media for stoking the ridiculous and massively irresponsible idea that Donald Trump is a “white supremacist”. The article was entitled “You Are Still Crying Wolf”:

Stop crying wolf. God forbid, one day we might have somebody who doesn’t give speeches about how diversity makes this country great and how he wants to fight for minorities, who doesn’t pose holding a rainbow flag and state that he proudly supports transgender people, who doesn’t outperform his party among minority voters, who wasn’t the leader of the Salute to Israel Parade, and who doesn’t offer minorities major cabinet positions. And we won’t be able to call that guy an “openly white supremacist Nazi homophobe”, because we already wasted all those terms this year.

What if, one day, there is a candidate who hates black people so much that he doesn’t go on a campaign stop to a traditionally black church in Detroit, talk about all of the contributions black people have made to America, promise to fight for black people, and say that his campaign is about opposing racism in all its forms? What if there’s a candidate who does something more like, say, go to a KKK meeting and say that black people are inferior and only whites are real Americans?

We might want to use words like “openly racist” or “openly white supremacist” to describe him. And at that point, nobody will listen, because we wasted “openly white supremacist” on the guy who tweets pictures of himself eating a taco on Cinco de Mayo while saying “I love Hispanics!”

The article is very long and contains tons of data but Alexander’s main point is that it’s a complete media fabrication this idea that Trump is some sort of White Supremacist. He points out that in 2016, Trump did better with minority voters than Romney did in 2012. He points out that Trump went out of his way to appeal to minorities, at one point saying during a campaign rally in Texas:

“We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton, who sees communities of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” the Republican nominee jabbed, after criticizing his rival on the controversial Clinton Foundation.

Trump went out of his way to say that. Why would he say that if he was a WHITE SUPREMACIST?

Alexander’s article is very long and, in my view, quite exhaustive. He settles the matter once and for all: Trump is not a white supremacist. It’s deeply irresponsible that, in spite of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, the Democratic Party and its media arm made it priority #1 in 2016 to cast Donald Trump as the biggest racist in America.

Alexander begged and pleaded with people–mainly the media–to just stop lying and being so hyperbolic about Trump. But of course as we see today, his efforts were futile.

Today’s media reaction to one specific moment from Tuesday night’s debate–“Mr. President, will you condemn white supremacism?”–shows that the media is still grossly irresponsible and more determined than ever to convince the country that Trump is a full-blown white supremacist.

Joe Biden’s Twitter account tweeted this yesterday:

Biden claimed Trump refused to condemn white supremacism, as if Trump was asked to do so and said “No.” Not only that but in Biden’s montage of supposed white supremacist groups doing Scary White Supremacist Things, he had an image of Kyle Rittenhouse from Kenosha, who was most certainly not a “white supremacist.” The media immediately began saying he was after the incident where he shot the two Antifa thugs in self-defense, but there was and remains no evidence at all that Rittenhouse is a white supremacist. Apparently being a white person with a gun is enough for the Democratic Nominee for President to consider you a white supremacist.

More than 24 hours later, this was still trending on Twitter:

As was this:

Look at how this tweet is worded–it’s the same phrasing as Biden used:

“Hollywood slams Trump’s refusal to condemn white supremacists”

At what point did Trump refuse to condemn white supremacists? Have a look at the transcripts. There is no refusal:

Do you see a refusal here? Does Trump say, “No, I refuse,” or “No, I won’t condemn it”?

Of course not.

He was asked if he was willing to condemn white supremacists and militia groups, and he said, “Sure.” Maybe not the most emphatic affirmation, but an affirmation of Wallace’s question nonetheless. It also didn’t help that Wallace started talking over him almost immediately. As Wallace was prattling on, Trump said “sure” again, and if you watch the clip you can tell from the expression on his face, and his body language, the way he said “sure” was like a “Yeah, of course, obviously. This is ridiculous that you’re even asking.”

Yes, Trump could have easily said, “I condemn white supremacism.”

But also, in his mind, he’s probably thinking, “I’ve done it a dozen times already and they don’t care.” On top of that, he’s probably thinking that since he’s not a white supremacist, nor has he ever avowed white supremacists, why should he have to continually disavow them just because the media demands it?

I, too, would be hesitant to disavow white supremacism if I had never once avowed it. Because if you give in to the media’s demands, then it kinda makes you look like you did at one point avow it, and that it is a serious problem in this country rather than a completely baseless media narrative.

Trump has been a public figure for 30+ years now and not once was he ever called a racist until he ran for President. Before 2015, nobody in this country heard the name Donald Trump and immediately thought of white supremacist terrorism. It’s probably a big mindfuck for him to suddenly be considered The Leader of the White Supremacists, and rightly so. Because he’s not and he’s never been.

And it is ridiculous that Chris Wallace demanded Trump condemn white supremacism given that Trump has done so repeatedly over the past five years–ever since he started running for President.

From February of this year via FactCheck.org:

Let’s revisit Trump’s comments in the days after the Charlottesville rally. That rally turned violent, and one person, Heather Heyer, was killed and many others injured, when a man with a history of making racist comments plowed his car into a group of counterprotesters. 

The day of that incident Trump said, “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides.” Trump said he had spoken to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, and “we agreed that the hate and the division must stop, and must stop right now. We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation and true affection — really — and I say this so strongly — true affection for each other.”

Two days later, on Aug. 14, 2017, Trump issued a statement from the White House, and referred to “KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

You can go to the link for the full quote on Charlottesville, but Trump most certainly did not call the neo-Nazis “very fine people.” He was referring to a group of people who were not neo-Nazis who were also present to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee.

Here is a video showing Trump disavowing white supremacists over 20 times dating all the way back to 2000:

20 times! They just kept asking him the same question over and over again. If I were in his shoes, I’d be more than a little tired of getting asked this question.

In his Inaugural Address, he went out of his way to condemn prejudice of all kinds:

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

The Bible tells us, “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.

But that’s no good in the media’s eyes: only one form of prejudice must be condemned, and that’s white supremacism. Other forms of it are to be encouraged, in their view. They get really pissed when Trump says he condemns hatred of all kinds and doesn’t just single out white supremacism, as if it’s the only kind of hatred that’s bad.

Just 5 days ago, Trump signed an order designating both Antifa and the KKK as terrorist organizations. On top of that he announced that $500 billion in capital will now be made available to black communities. Do you think he gave the black community $500 billion dollars in order to trick people into thinking he’s not a racist?

And to save the best clip for last, here’s Trump condemning white supremacists during a debate in 2016…. a debate that none other than Chris Wallace himself was moderating:

This makes Wallace look even more dishonest given that he asked Trump the same question four years prior.

Not only has Trump condemned white supremacism on dozens of occasions over the past 5 years thereby rendering Wallace’s question unnecessary, but Wallace was wrong to even make white supremacism a point of discussion in the debate given that the vast majority of the violence and rioting happening in the country right now is coming from the far left. And Chris Wallace had zero interest in talking about Antifa/BLM.

Joe Biden not only didn’t condemn Antifa, he denied Antifa even existed. He said, “Antifa is an idea, not an organization.”

But Joe insisted that Trump condemn the Proud Boys.

Who have the Proud Boys killed? What cities have the Proud Boys burned down? How many stores have the Proud Boys looted? How many times have the Proud Boys shut down entire cities with their rioting?

For goodness’ sakes the leader of the Proud Boys isn’t even white: his name is Enrique Tarrio and according to Gateway Pundit he’s black and Hispanic. How could a “white supremacist group” choose a non-white as its leader? It makes no logical sense.

But it’s possible now that we live in a country where the media unironically runs headlines like this:

“Why young men of color are joining white supremacist groups”

Shouldn’t that be a dead giveaway that perhaps they’re not white supremacist groups?

The media begins from the assumption that everything they don’t approve of is WHITE SUPREMACISM, and when they run into evidence that directly contradicts their initial assumptions, that square peg of evidence must nevertheless be forced into the round hole of their initial assumptions.

So the supposed white supremacist groups are evidently not white supremacist groups, but do you think the media is going to let that stop them from stoking a nationwide panic over the specter of WHITE SUPREMACISM while simultaneously sweeping the shocking levels of actual, occurring and not theoretical radical leftwing violence and lawlessness under the rug? Of course not.

You know the media by now: they never let the truth stand in their way.

The media always comes out with these “reports” supposedly “proving” that WHITE SUPREMACIST TERRORISM is the biggest threat this nation faces, and that WHITE SUPREMACIST TERRORISTS are running around everywhere killing minorities left and right. According to Newsweek, between 2015-2019 there were 64 Americans killed by white supremacist terrorism. (And as Newsweek gleefully notes, That’s means they’ve killed more people* than radical Islamic Terrorists, you know! *Data set begins on September 12, 2001).

While 64 is obviously 64 too many, this is not some Urgent, Pressing National Crisis that demands round-the-clock media coverage and must be the focal point of the Presidential election. We live in a highly diverse nation with people of all races, ethnicities and religions. There are violent extremists in virtually every subset of the population. They’re always going to be around in some capacity.

And contrary to what the media says, relations between the various racial, ethnic and religious groups have never been better. Well, until about six years ago, that is. The media has since Ferguson been doing its damndest to change that, and a large part of it is its over-emphasis on sporadic, one-off incidents that, while vile and tragic and completely unacceptable, are not things that we should be obsessing over. Bad things happen all the time. Bad people people have and will always exist. But treating them as if they just now started happening and are far more prevalent than they actually are is simply despicable. We do not need to completely dismantle America because of sporadic instances of white supremacist violence.

This may come as a shock but when the media continually depicts the country as if it’s in the ramp-up to a full-blown racial battle royale, more and more people are going to believe it and act accordingly.

White supremacists are not running amok. The KKK’s national membership is, according to Wikipedia, between 5,000-8,000. That’s 0.000024% of the country. Scott Alexander in the post at the top estimated the size of the alt-right to be about 50,000 nationwide:

The only one that displays clear user statistics is /r/altright, which says that there are about 5,000 registered accounts. The real number is probably less – some people change accounts, some people post once and disappear, and some non-white-nationalists probably go there to argue. But sure, let’s say that community has 5,000 members.

Stormfront’s user statistics say it gets about 30,000 visits/day, of which 60% are American. My own blog gets about 8,000 visits/day , and the measurable communities associated with it (the subreddit, people who follow my social media accounts) have between 2000 – 8000 followers. If this kind of thing scales, then it suggests about 10,000 people active in the Stormfront community.

4chan boasts about 1 million visits/day. About half seem to be American. Unclear how many go to the politics board and how many are just there for the anime and video games, but Wikipedia says that /b/ is the largest board with 30% of 4Chan’s traffic, so /pol/ must be less than that. If we assume /pol/ gets 20% of 4chan traffic, and that 50% of the people on /pol/ are serious alt-rightists and not dissenters or trolls, the same scaling factors give us about 25,000 – 50,000 American alt-rightists on 4Chan.

Taking into account the existence of some kind of long tail of alt-right websites, I still think the population of the online US alt-right is somewhere in the mid five-digits, maybe 50,000 or so.

50,000 is more than the 5,000 Klansmen. But it’s still 0.02% of the US population. It’s still about the same order of magnitude as the Nation of Islam, which has about 30,000 – 60,000 members, or the Church of Satan, which has about 20,000. It’s not quite at the level of the Hare Krishnas, who boast 100,000 US members. This is not a “voting bloc” in the sense of somebody it’s important to appeal to. It isn’t a “political force” (especially when it’s mostly, as per the 4chan stereotype, unemployed teenagers in their parents’ basements.)

So the mainstream narrative is that Trump is okay with alienating minorities (= 118 million people), whites who abhor racism and would never vote for a racist (if even 20% of whites, = 40 million people), most of the media, most business, and most foreign countries – in order to win the support of about 50,000 poorly organized and generally dysfunctional people, many of whom are too young to vote anyway.

It’s ridiculous to believe that A. the nation is teeming with white supremacists, and B. Trump caters to them and desperately craves their support.

Besides, in any given year, far more white people are killed by black people than vice versa. This is the data from 2018:

514 white people killed by black people, 234 black people killed by white people. 2.2x as many black-on-white homicides despite the fact that there are 4.5x more white people in the country than black people. This comes out to:

  • 1 in 833k odds a white person kills a black person
  • 1 in 84k odds a black person kills a white person.

So black on white homicide is 9.9x more prevalent than white on black homicide.

Does the media want to talk about why there’s such a shocking disparity there? No?

Could it possibly have anything to do with anti-white racism, which is largely stoked by the media?

The point here is to show just how completely untethered to reality the media has become. They have built up an alternate reality where white supremacism is more or less the single greatest crisis in America right now, and tens of millions of people are fully immersed in that alternate reality.

Why do so many people believe the media’s lies? The easy answer is that people simply believe what they see on the news and on social media without checking to see if it’s true. While most Americans by this point claim to distrust the media, they don’t behave like it: they still believe that any and everything important that happens in this country will be on the news. If it’s on the news, that must mean it’s important, and if it’s important then it’s on the news. And vice versa. If it’s not on the news, it’s as if it never happened, ie. the old “tree falling in the forest with nobody around” maxim.

The media’s priorities have become millions of Americans’ priorities. So when the media obsesses over white supremacism, tens of millions of Americans do as well.

But it goes even beyond that: the media frames things in a way that appeals to people’s sense of morality within the confines of a secular country that still nevertheless strongly desires a strict moral code and foundation in order to determine Good from Bad. And that moral code is Antiracism.

The only people who were outraged at Trump’s supposed “refusal” to condemn white supremacism are the people who are simply determined to believe he’s a hardcore racist no matter what.

These people have access to the internet. There’s no excuse to be this misinformed. I know the Democrats lie a lot, I know the media lies a lot, I know celebrities lie about Trump all the time. But these are not excuses for grown adults to be so badly misinformed and, as a result, vein-popping mad because of it.

Being really really angry and OUTRAGED does not mean you’re right. If a complete stranger came up to you and said, “Hey, that guy down the street made a pass at your wife,” would you immediately go grab your gun and confront your neighbor in a rage? No–at least I hope not. You’d find out whether what the stranger told you was true first.

And if it turns out it wasn’t true, wouldn’t you be mad at the stranger for lying to you and getting you all mad?

Instead of getting mad at the media for lying to them, many people in this country choose to retreat even deeper into the media’s alternate reality.

They believe Trump is a racist because they want to believe it.

They want to be outraged over Trump’s racism because it makes them feel like good people. They need this. They need to have that constant reassurance that they’re morally superior to Trump and all his supporters. The Religion of Wokeness needs its equivalent to infidels, heretics, etc. It needs an “other” to hate and, more importantly, look down upon.

For so many of these people, Not Being Racist has become the crowning achievement of their lives. It’s what reassures them that they are Good People.

Now this is of course not to say that there’s anything wrong with Not Being Racist, but it is to say that in post-Civil Rights Era America–from ~1965 to 2014–most Americans viewed the matter differently: you were not special for simply Not Being A Racist. It was just expected of you.

Nowadays, though, people think they’re special for Not Being Racist. They go out of their way to show everyone how Not Racist they are. And if you don’t do the same–if you’re not constantly virtue signaling on social media about how Not Racist you are–well then that must mean you’re a racist. Not being racist is no longer enough.

In fact, this has basically become the official slogan of the self-proclaimed “Antiracists”: it’s not enough to simply not be racist.

Tons of headlines say as much:

This should tell you something about the true state of this country: Once the Democratic Party realized that this country wasn’t racist anymore, they had to come up with a new narrative through which to keep the activists marching through the streets, the donations pouring in, and the electorate divided along racial lines: not only is the country still racist, it’s Systemically Racist, and things are worse than ever for minorities.

The 2012 election was the last time the Democratic Party marched under its traditional banner of economic populism: tax the rich, support labor unions, latent socialism, etc.

Ever since Ferguson, the Democratic Party has been primarily about race and identity politics. Yes, the party is more socialist than ever before, but they don’t really talk about economics these days. Outside of RUSSIA, what has been the Democrats’ one main, overarching attack on Trump since 2015: he’s a White Supremacist.

Trump basically stole the mantle of economic populism right from under them. But he did it rightwing-style: populism mixed with patriotic nationalism, minus all the “soak the rich” socialist rhetoric, along with a promise to end the foreign wars because he wasn’t a part of the Neocon Foreign Policy Establishment.

In order to prevent minorities from naturally gravitating to Trump and his message of economic populism, they had to resort to fearmongering and lies: “He’s a racist and he’s gonna persecute you!”

They have to continually tell minorities Trump is racist so that they don’t ever consider supporting him. His message is naturally unifying and appealing to most regular Americans of all races because the people he continually rails against are the Beltway Swamp, who are screwing everyone else over, and the radical left, who are causing a ruckus. It’s a small number of people. Everyone else, Trump wants to appeal to–and that’s a very large number of people.

Trump represents the possibility of turning a broad majority of the American people against the Beltway Swamp. And that is a mortal threat to not only the Democrats, but also the RINOs, who are every bit as entrenched in the Swamp as the Democrats.

This cannot be allowed to happen. So this is why the racial fearmongering has been cranked to the max the past five years or so. Minorities are the foundation of the Democratic Party.

And if they bolt for Trump, then there is no more Democratic Party.

***

For a while now I’ve been wondering how this country can avoid civil war and get back to a state of relative tranquility and unity–basically, how we can get back to pre-Ferguson America.

Things can either get better and simmer down, or they can get worse, and more than likely this country plunges into a civil war at some point in the future. The way things get worse is simple: the status quo of staunch racial and political division simply remains in place and gets taken to its logical conclusion.

What hasn’t been so clear, at least to me, is how things can actually get better.

But then I realized the answer was pretty simple: the way we avoid a civil war is if media stops trying to start a civil.

The media’s lying is the source of it all. It’s why we’re so divided, it’s why we can no longer tolerate one another, and it’s why there seems to be Two Americas today: because one America is living in the media’s alternate reality, and the other isn’t.

Rather than cover the substantive issues of the debate, the media chose to send the denizens of its alternate reality into racial hysteria after the debate because the President merely answered “sure” when asked if he condemns white supremacism.

It’s true that there wasn’t too much in the way of substance in the debate, so covering its substantive matters was a tall order. But I don’t even know if a genuinely substantive debate is possible today given the political climate of this country. The media has pushed this country to the brink of civil war, so naturally the Presidential debate reflected that. Additionally, it didn’t help that the “moderator” of the debate a dishonest Swamp Shill whose sole objective was to make Trump look as bad as possible.

Yes, Trump could’ve been more emphatic in his response. But it wouldn’t have mattered in the long run. They still would have made up a reason to call him a WHITE SUPREMACIST and a RACIST. Condemning white supremacism 20+ times in the past simply wasn’t enough for the media. No matter what he said on Tuesday night, they were always going to ask him the same question again. And again. And again. And again.

The problem is that the media is making this into the biggest story in America in a deliberate attempt to pour gasoline on the racial fire the media themselves started.

The media is the root of it all, and as long as the media continues doing what it’s doing, the country will continue breaking apart and heading towards a civil war or some other violent denouement.

Don’t watch the news. Don’t subscribe to cable. Don’t give the media clicks. When they lie and defame you, sue them mercilessly.

Just tune the media out entirely. There’s plenty of honest websites online where you can get your news from–and they’re far superior in quality to the Fake News media. Watch YouTube and other various streamers.

If no one is watching or reading, they won’t be in business for long.

The media is the source of it all. The media is the Swamp’s greatest weapon against us. It keeps us divided and fighting amongst ourselves rather than against the Swamp.

The media has to either change its ways or wither away. It’s the only way the country avoids civil war.

🚨 Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has Died

Age 87. Pancreatic cancer.

As if 2020 couldn’t get any crazier. The October surprise has arrived two weeks early.

Thoughts:

  • The answer is 53. That’s how many Republican Senators there are right now. I know everyone is wondering if Trump will name a nominee for the vacated seat, and if McConnell will bring it to a vote. He has just released a statement saying, yes, he will be bringing the nominee to a vote:
  • McConnell is 100% right. The Scalia vacancy in 2016 is different from this because there was a Democratic President and a Republican Senate. This time Republicans have the White House and the Senate.
  • Does McConnell have the votes, though? Traitorous Alaska “Republican” Lisa Murkowski has already said she will not vote to replace Ginsburg until after election day. She says “fair is fair.” Except, no, as we just went over, it’s not the same situation. Democrats didn’t have the votes in 2016 and they don’t have the votes now. Lisa Murkowski is just looking for an excuse to sell out her party.
  • On top of that, we also have to worry about Mitt Romney, who is more loyal to the media than the GOP. And Susan Collins of Maine is another weak link.
  • That brings us down to 50 votes, which works because we’d still have Pence to cast the tie-breaker.
  • There’s a long time, however, between now and the vote. If you thought Kavanaugh was bad, this is going to be 100x worse. I am legitimately concerned for the safety of whomever the nominee is. The Democrats literally have nothing left but the threat of violence. It’s how they do things nowadays. They just riot and burn and destroy. Biden has already issued thinly a thinly-veiled threat that if he doesn’t win the election there will be more violence. This is where the Democrats are now. They are fully third-world. They have fully embraced Gangsterism.
  • Short of violence, how can the Democrats possibly oppose this next SCOTUS nominee more than they opposed Kavanaugh? They literally tried to frame him for rape. Are they going to frame this next one for murder? It can’t get much worse than Kavanaugh. That’s why I’m worried they’re about to get really violent.
  • People are saying Trump should nominate a woman because Ginsburg was a woman. I despise this line of thinking. We’re the party that claims to be against identity politics, and yet here we are playing by the Democrats’ rules. We are under no obligations to nominate a woman. The Republicans should nominate someone who is going to be a strong, America First nationalist for decades to come. That’s the only qualification that matters. In fact I think Trump should nominate a white male just because it will piss off the Democrats that much more.
  • My initial thought on hearing the news was that this would boost Democratic turnout. It would ramp their desperation up to another level. But the more I thought about it, the less I actually believe this will be a major factor in the election. Ginsburg’s death and the Supreme Court in general is not an issue that motivates everyday voters–especially “low information” voters. This is a massive deal in the Beltway. It’s a massive deal to highly-engaged white liberals, but they already had their hair on fire over this election. They are already highly motivated by their extreme hatred of Trump.
  • On top of this, these people generally live in deep blue states/cities anyway. New York, California, Chicago, Seattle, etc. This is not going to make a difference for swing voters in the midwest. This does not really move the needle with the working class. Most voters are not motivated by the Supreme Court. They care about more immediate issues like their wallets, crime, jobs, etc. They don’t have time to worry about the Supreme Court. Only political junkies and journalists care about the Supreme Court, so they’ll inevitably make this a massive story because it’s a massive story to them.

This just had to happen now, huh? Awfully interesting timing.

At any rate, Republicans need to get this nominee confirmed ASAP. The Democrats are going to go bananas no matter what. That shouldn’t impact the Republicans’ actions at all. You cannot let the bratty children throwing a temper tantrum control the government.

The Democrats don’t have the votes, so they have to resort to lies, slander, bullying, intimidation and even outright violence in order to try to scare the Republicans into doing their bidding.

Apparently, in a statement released by Ginsburg’s family, she said “my most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” A rotten partisan Democrat til the very end.

It was a mistake of her to say that. A more diplomatic way to go about it would’ve been “Until after the election.” That would have been dignified and responsible. But no. Her last words were a swipe at Trump. And why did she use the word “installed” instead of “elected”? That’s an odd choice of words.

Any sympathy or goodwill that Republicans may have been willing to offer in the wake of her death is now gone in an instant. Republicans are under no obligation to grant her dying wish. She should have retired years ago, when Obama was in office. Instead she got greedy and arrogant, assuming Hillary would win, and stuck around. The fact that she will be replaced by Trump is her fault and her fault alone.

No sympathy at all. She made her death about Trump–or at least her family did. We are under no obligations to defer to her wishes. Her dying wish is basically summarized as, “You better vote the bastard out.”

If that’s how it’s going to be, then screw it. No sympathy.

This is going to make Kavanaugh look like high school drama. Get ready for the rioting and chaos to start up again. It’s going to get extremely ugly. The media is going to kick the fake news and lies into overdrive. Prepare to hunker down. This is going to be bad. I don’t know what’s about to happen in this country. But it’s going to be very bad.

1619 vs. 1776

About one year ago, the New York Times launched “The 1619 Project“, a highly ambitious undertaking that, in its own words, sought to, “reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of [the United States’] national narrative.”

In other words, completely rewrite American history so that black people are the protagonists and white people are the antagonists.

No more learning about the Quakers and the Puritans fleeing to the “New world” for religious freedom. No more learning about the Revolutionary War and the Constitutional Convention.

It is non-stop indoctrination of the “black people are oppressed, white people are the oppressors” narrative. It promotes the narrative that, in the words of Tim Kaine, America “created” slavery and “didn’t inherit it from anybody.”

The 1619 Project is the narrative that America was created for the sole purpose of oppressing and enslaving black people, and that the people that founded this country collectively made it their lives’ mission to oppress black people. Every law ever written, every word of the Constitution, every word of the Declaration of Independence–all of it was written by people who were single-mindedly intent on oppressing black people.

The whole “freedom” thing? A myth. The real point of America is to be mean to black people.

Because radical black ethnonarcissists in America today believe everyone is as obsessed with “blackness” as they are.

More about the 1619 Project:

The project was timed for the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in the Virginia colony in 1619, and suggests that this date represents the “nation’s birth year.” It is an interactive project directed by Nikole Hannah-Jones, a reporter for The New York Times, with contributions by the newspaper’s writers, including essays on the history of different aspects of contemporary American life which the authors believe have “roots in slavery and its aftermath.”

They aren’t lying about wanting to completely rewrite American history.

If the 1619 Project was merely some article by a radical black nationalist published by the New York Times, it wouldn’t be that big of a deal. But it’s way more than that now: it is now starting to be taught in schools across the country. According to Northwestern University:

Imagine a high school classroom where the history teacher asks the students how societal structures continue to support the enslavement of Black people. Then the conversation continues to dissect the role of slaves in the development of America, abandoning the predictable narrative of the Civil War, emancipation, freedom.

That curriculum exists. The Pulitzer Center helped turn The New York Times’ The 1619 Project — which received worldwide attention when it was published last year — into a curriculum that’s now taught in more than 4,500 schools nationwide.

I’m sure the math doesn’t break down this evenly, but 4500 schools divided by 50 states is 90 schools per state.

The 1619 Project was created by people who harbor an impossibly deep and ferocious hatred of America and white people in general. They seek nothing less than the complete disenfranchisement and dispossession of white Americans.

Today, which is apparently “Constitution Day,” Trump (and VP Pence) delivered remarks at the first-ever “White House History Conference”, held at the National Archives. In his remarks, President Trump announced that he will soon be signing an executive order to create a “national commission to promote patriotic education” called “The 1776 Commission”. Here is the full video of his remarks, and here is a link to the transcript:

Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character. We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.

Because the 1619 Project teaches them the exact opposite: that they are citizens of the most wicked and RACIST nation in the history of the world, and that they should hate themselves accordingly.

The 1619 Project is the latest in a long line of anti-American alternative histories that began with Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States,” only this one is way more obviously anti-white.

When I was in high school not all that long ago (I graduated in 2009, very early in Obama’s presidency), US history lessons were already pretty heavily focused on slavery and the Holocaust (i.e. the “white people are dangerous and bad narrative”), but they still had some degree of balance and emphasis on the founding and American exceptionalism.

We learned that America’s system of government–a constitutional republic–was the first of its kind and marked a turning point not only here on this continent but in world history, after which the relationship between men and their governments would never be the same again.

Prior to 1776, monarchy was the rule around the world. Government was largely defined as a “ruler-subject” relationship, and people had little to no say in regards to the laws under which they lived.

We learned that the Founding Fathers of America were some of the smartest, wisest and greatest men to ever live because of the unique system of government they created.

Now, of course, American representative democracy as implemented by the Founders was incomplete, and so it evolved and expanded over time–most notably 1828 with Andrew Jackson, the 15th Amendment in 1870, the 19th Amendment in 1920, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. But though America did not begin as a fully representative democracy, all of those expansions to the voting franchise listed in the previous sentence were conceived, justified and ultimately signed into law based on the words the Founding Fathers had written in 1776 in their blueprint for America, aka the Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

It was this line that ultimately led to the abolition of slavery, too.

I think the reason I’ve always believed in American exceptionalism is because it’s what I was taught in school. But things have changed significantly over the past decade or so.

It goes beyond just the Founding Fathers, too. When I was in school, we learned about the Civil Rights movement through the perspective of Martin Luther King Jr, whose most famous line was “I have a dream that one day, my children may be judged not by the color of their skin, but the content of their character.” I grew up with the “colorblind America” ideal, but that’s long gone: now, nothing can matter more than race. It’s a complete inversion, the point of which is to divide America along racial lines rather than bring all races together under the American flag.

Now, you can argue that the Roman Republic beat us to the punch as far as democracy goes, and that our belief in the uniqueness of American democracy is short-sighted and naive, not only in its ignorance of the fact that the Roman Republic came first, but also in forgetting how the Roman Republic ended and what came after it.

America may yet go the way of the old Roman Republic–and there are a growing number of people out there who argue that this wouldn’t really be a bad thing–but I think the American Republic can still be turned around and saved so long as we reverse course now.

That’s what Trump is trying to do with the 1776 Commission: reverse course before America raise an entire generation of radical, America-hating leftwingers. More from Trump’s speech:

On this very day in 1787, our founding fathers signed the Constitution at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. It was the fulfillment of a thousand years of Western civilization. Our Constitution was the product of centuries of tradition, wisdom, and experience. No political document has done more to advance the human condition or propel the engine of progress. Yet, as we gather this afternoon, a radical movement is attempting to demolish this treasured and precious inheritance. We can’t let that happen.

The left wing mobs have torn down statues of our founders, desecrated our memorials, and carried out a campaign of violence and anarchy. Far left demonstrators have chanted the words, “America was never great.” The Left has launched a vicious and violent assault on law enforcement, the universal symbol of the rule of law in America. These radicals have been aided and abetted by liberal politicians, establishment, media, and even large corporations. Whether it is the mob on the street or the cancel culture in the boardroom, the goal is the same: to silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life.

We are here today to declare that we will never submit to tyranny. We will reclaim our history and our country for citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed. The radicals burning American flags want to burn down the principles enshrined in our founding documents, including the bedrock principle of equal justice under law. In order to radically transform America, they must first cause Americans to lose confidence in who we are, where we came from, and what we believe.

This is the crux of it. In order to ensure unchecked and permanent power for themselves, the radical left must first disabuse Americans of their attachment to outdated ideas like “freedom” “We the People,” and “the rule of law.”

As many of you testified today, the left wing rioting and mayhem are the direct result of decades of left wing indoctrination in our schools. It’s gone on far too long. Our children are instructed from propaganda tracks like those of Howard Zinn that try to make students ashamed of their own history. The Left has warped, distorted, and defiled the American story with deceptions, falsehoods, and lies.

There’s no better example than the New York Times totally discredited 1619 Project. This project rewrites American history to teach our children that we were founded on the principle of oppression, not freedom. Nothing could be further from the truth. America’s founding set in motion the unstoppable chain of events that abolished slavery, secured civil rights, defeated communism and fascism, and built the most fair, equal, and prosperous nation in human history.

We embrace the vision of Martin Luther King, where children are not judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. The Left is attempting to destroy that beautiful vision and divide Americans by race, in the service of political power. By viewing every issue through the lens of race, they want to impose a new segregation and we must not allow that to happen. Critical Race Theory, the 1619 Project, and the crusade against American history is toxic propaganda. Ideological poison, that if not removed will dissolve the civic bonds that tie us together, will destroy our country. That is why I recently banned trainings in this prejudiced ideology from the federal government and banned it in the strongest manner possible.

The only path to national unity is through our shared identity as Americans. That is why it is so urgent that we finally restore patriotic education to our schools. Under our leadership, the National Endowment for the Humanities has awarded a grant to support the development of a pro-American curriculum that celebrates the truth about our nation’s great history.

He’s taking direct aim at the 1619 Project. He correctly identifies the unique danger it–and anti-American school curriculum in general–poses to the survival of this country.

The blue checks on Twitter are calling Trump’s speech “fascist,” unsurprisingly. Pro tip: if your biggest concern is the supposed “rise of fascism in America,” it’s probably not the best idea to tell people that a Presidential speech emphasizing things like “freedom” and “national unity” constitutes fascism. Lots of Americans are going to look at Trump’s remarks and think, “If that’s fascism, then I guess I’m a fascist.”

“Trump Youth” is also a trending topic on Twitter. Get it, like “Hitler Youth”? Very original and fresh, right?

So brainwashed are the libs that they reflexively associate patriotism with Hitler.

See how bad things already are?

These brainwashed libs on social media shrieking about the 1776 Commission and calling it “Nazism” are in fact Exhibit A for why the 1776 Commission is so vitally important.

Don Lemon: “The rioting has to stop. It’s showing up in the polling.”

Too late for that, asshole. The damage has been done after three full months of nonstop rioting, looting, burning and mayhem. You and your braindead false savior are toast.

The damage has been done, asshole:

Notice how Don Lemon has dropped all the bullshit gaslighting about “peaceful protests”.

That’s because he has come to the realization that Biden is screwed and the Summer of BLM has completely and totally backfired. The public is not on the side of the rioters. The public is terrified of that coming to their town. The public wants law and order by any means necessary.

The public wants their country to go back to normal.

A few more things about Don Lemon’s idiotic argument:

  • “[Biden’s] gotta address it. He’s gotta do a speech like Barack Obama did about race. He’s gotta tell people he’s going to deal with the issue of police reform…”
  • Uh, what Obama speech is he talking about? It clearly didn’t work. Race relations took a massive dive under Obama.
  • Americans do not want the Democrats to “deal with the issue of police reform.” They’re the ones screaming “DEFUND THE POLICE!” Americans want law and order. They want security. They want to live in a country that is peaceful, harmonious and safe. The Democrats are the party of rioting, mayhem and racial tribalism. No thanks.
  • “What’s happening now is happening under Donald Trump’s watch, and when [Biden] is President, he and Kamala Harris will take care of the problem.”
  • Lemon is talking about the police shootings here, not the rioting. This is a straight up lie, though. Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin both happened under Obama. BLM itself was founded in 2013. Do not even try to act like black people are being killed by police because Trump is in office.
  • People have always been killed by police. Black, white, brown–whatever. It’s only in the past 7-8 years that the media has been focusing on it obsessively and portraying it as this massive, nationwide “epidemic” that has only sprung up recently. Biden and Harris are not going to “take care” of anything. The media will just stop reporting on it as much because it won’t be as politically useful for the Democrats. This will cause people to think Biden solved the problem.

What you’re seeing here out of Don Lemon is panic. He knows all of this has backfired spectacularly on Biden.

By no means am I saying this ugliness is the majority view on the left. But it ain’t exactly the fringe.

This is how badly they’ve been brainwashed.

And, for good measure, this is how the brainwashers at the Washington Post described Robert Trump, side by side with their description of the former ISIS leader Al-Baghdadi:

Michael Anton on How America Can Remain United

I’m glad he wrote this, because I’ve been asking this question for the past 3-4 years and have been coming up blank. The only answers I’ve been able to come up with to the question “How can America reunify and become a strong country again?” were:

  • It can’t.
  • The national news media is widely recognized as the source of division and tension, and is be completely shut down and eliminated, along with potentially social media as well.
  • We have a full-scale civil war in which one side wins decisively and effectively wipes the other side out, or at least beats them so badly they become like a conquered people and have to basically concede every last point of the culture war.
  • People realize secular, urban, post-industrial, materialistic society is a terrible way to live and we become a largely agrarian nation once again, like we were at the time of the founding. Basically, half the labor force quits, moves to the country and starts farming. This could even be encouraged with a new “40 acres and a mule”-type policy for the 21st century.

Thankfully Anton is much smarter than I am and sees a viable way out of this dire situation America appears to be in:

“And now here we are: in so many ways, more divided than we were in 1860—in so many ways, not even a “we” anymore. Restoring American unity in this climate sounds almost comically impossible. How to restore unity after five decades and counting of Cold Civil War—the rancor of which only seems to intensify month to­ month?

I have some ideas, which I will get to. But first, let’s understand what is meant by “unity.” It does not mean a unanimous vote in the Electoral College, such as George Washington won twice. It doesn’t mean return to the bipartisan consensus of World War II and the first decades of the postwar, Cold War era. It doesn’t even mean anything like the 1972 or 1984 49-state landslide—which can almost certainly never be repeated.

“Unity” in the American political context—really, for any republic, and one may say for republicanism simply—means a shared set of basic goals and assumptions. It doesn’t mean everyone has to agree on everything or even like everyone. Indeed, a unified republic may nonetheless be quite divided in certain respects. Historically the most common division in any republic has been economic, with religion and culture providing the underlying bedrock of unity. Divisions between patricians and plebeians over sharing spoils and offices continually wracked Republican Rome, but the city also remained fundamentally unified, as Rome, with both classes speaking the same language, worshiping the same gods, adhering to the same morality, and committed to Roman greatness and glory.”

The class warfare rhetoric sort of died out after the 2012, giving way to racial warfare rhetoric.

“To say the least, there does not appear to be any shared interest or bond of unity underneath contemporary America’s bitter Red-Blue divide. One side loves America, the other hates it—or can tolerate it only for what it might someday become, were the Left’s entire program to be enacted without exception. One faction, or most of it, is religious in the traditional sense; the other invented the god of wokeness, which it worships with Dionysian abandon. One side speaks only English, the other boasts of the literally hundreds of languages now heard in America’s Blue precincts. One side insists that the ultimate moral imperative is to punish the other—who in turn understand that morality requires fairness and equal justice under law.

What would partisans of either side cite as something they share in common with the other? The land itself? But they each go to great lengths not to live anywhere near one another. “The economy?” It’s been reengineered to benefit one side at the expense of the other. As for the culture—that reliable unifying bond throughout most of history—to ask is to laugh, and cry, at the same time.

The merest shred of cultural unity would seem so far out of reach as to be scarcely worth trying for, at least for the foreseeable future. I don’t believe the country can continue indefinitely without any semblance of a common culture, but focusing right now on a near- and medium-term impossibility would be folly. Which leaves us with economics.

Even that’s going to be hard enough. How to do you reconcile—much less unify—a fundamentally rural, small-town and small-city manufacturing-agricultural economy with an urban and affluent-suburban finance-information-managerial economy? Especially when the profits of the latter so depend on strip-mining the resources—outsourcing the industries and replacing the labor—of the former?

The seemingly paradoxical answer is that one side needs to gain and keep—electorally!—the upper hand for a while: specifically, the side that has been getting the short end of the stick for the last generation at least. Its leaders will of course, and of necessity, use their power to benefit their side—their base—but they must also use it to right the ship, to rebalance and benefit the whole.”

Read the whole thing. Anton is top-0.1%-tier intelligent and has obviously thought about this a great deal.

But basically his point is that the coastal urban financial elite has exploited the living hell out of the rural, blue collar middle/working class for over 30 years now, and if we’re ever going to heal and reunify as a nation, we need to find some sort of equilibrium in the urban-rural dynamic, because it’s way out of whack.

That means more Trump. Because he’s the first president in a long time that actually gives a damn about the flyover states. He’s the first president in a while that is not advocating for the moneyed interests against the everyday America.

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction–well, Trump is the reaction to three decades-plus of the Power Establishment’s utter disregard for anything but their bottom lines.

Trump is the chickens coming home to roost. He is the bill coming due, the lights coming on at bar close. He’s the party crasher. And he was made inevitable by the way the Beltway, media and financial elites completely neglected the American people and left them to wither and die. They outsourced manufacturing to China and it hurt the working class, but they didn’t care because their profits went up. They let Big Pharma get rural America hooked on painkillers and opioids because it was good for Big Pharma’s bottom line–and because they were far removed from the real-world effects of the opioid crisis. They barely lifted a finger to stop illegal immigration–which cost the working class jobs– and allowed hundreds of thousands a year to come in legally to take the jobs of middle class and even white collar workers.

Virtually every policy enacted by the ruling establishment–Democrat or Republican–over the past three decades has benefitted the elite at the direct expense of everyone else. And in 2016, the people left holding the bag decided they’d had enough.

Living creatures either adapt or die. They either recognize and address threats, or they are killed. They seek equilibrium when things get out of whack. Trump was the forgotten masses collectively making the conscious decision to adapt, rather than die. They realized the Romneys and the Bushes and the McCains of the world were not on their side, despite the fact that they were Republicans. They realized that voting for those Democrat-lite stooges was not only getting them nowhere but would eventually be their ruin, and so they turned to a guy who was not on the Establishment-Approved Menu of presidential candidates. Trump represented real opposition to the Leftwing globalist agenda, rather than the illusory and purely rhetorical opposition represented by the GOP Establishment. As Anton puts it:

“No party representing the interests of the rural, small-town and small-city manufacturing-agricultural population currently exists. The Democrats long ago abandoned “the common man” in favor of their high-low coalition. The Republicans would seem to be the country party—certainly, they get a lot of their votes from such people—but in practice GOP office-holders and donors are just as, if not more, likely to side with the interests of the ruling class and “global capital” over those of their own ostensible base.”

Trump was the first candidate to come along in many, many years whose platform actually reflected what the party base wanted. The fact that his 2016 campaign was so different from his GOP Nomination rivals was not proof that he was “not a Real Conservative,” it was proof that he was the only one who cared about the voters.

And there were many voters who flipped from Obama to Trump. It was not just Republicans who put Trump in the White House. This is because the elite’s self-centered plundering of the country was indiscriminate and affected people from all walks of life. Basically, everybody who wasn’t in on the scam was the victim.

So Trump needed to win in 2016 to begin to restore some semblance of balance to the country. And he needs to win again in 2020 because four years was not enough to undo and rectify all the damage the elite did to the rest of the country. Eight years may not even be enough to turn this country around.

The country cannot and will not survive if we go back to the parasite-host relationship that has characterized the past 3-4 decades. The political and financial classes create nothing of real value yet have bled the people that do dry, i.e. the blue collar workers, the farmers, the small business owners, the middle class. Not only this but they have been waging full-scale cultural warfare on them and are explicitly trying to dispossess them of their history and their homeland.

Anton is right: if this country is ever to be made whole again, then there needs to be a great rebalancing between the “Two Americas” that have emerged in recent years. The balance of power in this country is way out of whack. Everything you’re seeing in the culture right now–the riots, the looting, the protests, BLM, Antifa–is an orchestrated reaction by the Ruling Class to the threat Trump poses to their power.

But Trump staying in office and continuing to implement his America First agenda might be the only hope this country has of not only unifying again, but surviving altogether.

Is Trump in Danger?

Lots of people noticed this remark of his yesterday:

Are they trying to kill him or something? What did he mean by “this may be the last time you’ll see me for a while”? Where is he going?

This was a very cryptic line. I hope everything’s alright.

He delivered that speech in Ohio. Before leaving, his staff gave him an unusual send-off–almost like they were saying goodbye to him for good:

EeyxxuvX0AUhwtY.jpg

There is so much happening behind the scenes that none of us ever hear about. In fact, I’d say the majority of Trump’s battles as President have been fought behind the scenes and we know very little–if anything–about what’s really happening.

Keep this man in your prayers. He needs them.

Obama Officially Joins the Cultural Revolution

He can’t really make it more obvious:

The New America™ will get New Founding Fathers. That’s why they’re tearing down all the statues that represent Old America.

All those Racist Old White Men will be erased from history and replaced.

Not only does Obama want America’s history rewritten, he also wants to get rid of the filibuster in the Senate, calling it a “Jim Crow relic”:

Screen Shot 2020-07-30 at 5.15.24 PM.png

Since Trump was sworn into office in 2017 with a Republican House and a Republican Senate, I’ve been begging the Republicans to get rid of the filibuster and just go bananas passing every single America First agenda item imaginable.

The reasoning was because the next time Democrats took power, they would get rid of the filibuster without a second thought.

Of course Republicans didn’t get rid of the filibuster in 2017. They managed to find a way to pass their tax cut bill without needing to nuke the filibuster. They also got an Obamacare repeal vote through.

Then, when it came to other stuff like cracking down on immigration, building the wall, and everything else Trump campaigned on, they pretended their hands were tied because they didn’t have the votes and Democrats were standing in the way.

This is because the Republican Party is not actually on our side at all. It’s merely the controlled opposition, the built-in losers. The Washington Generals to the Democrats’ Harlem Globetrotters. The Republican Party is designed to consistently fail at delivering on its promises to voters. The only thing the Republican Party will ever get through Congress is tax cuts.

That’s why the Republican Party exists: to cut taxes for corporations, and to give half the country the impression that we actually have a say in government so we don’t revolt.

Wokeness Is Destroying the Military

The US “Space Force” is now clout-chasing for Woke Points on social media:

The Chinese, Russians and Iranians are laughing their asses off at us.

Are we the first Great Power in history that thinks it’s a good thing to have a lot of women in the military?

This is a sign of America’s decline. We are a fundamentally weak nation now. We are feminized, low-self esteem and soft. This country is not America anymore.

Unless the military is pulling some massive Sun Tzu-style deception and appearing weak when we are strong, our military has become a complete joke.

There are certain institutions in America where you have to draw the line and not allow Wokeness to encroach. You can’t let the mentally-ill adult babies have their way and live out their deluded Woke fantasies everywhere in society. There must be institutions where Wokeness is strictly forbidden.

Personally, I think Wokeness is a scourge that should not be tolerated at all. But our weak elites, who have made a habit of bowing to the mobs and appeasing the mobs, have allowed Wokeness to spread, infect and overrun most of our major institutions–the media, academia, Hollywood, corporate America, public schools, and even the Church. Even with all these once-respectable institutions now compromised and corrupted by Wokeness, our country can survive.

But if the military succumbs to Wokeness, we cannot survive that.

The military is perhaps the most important institution where Wokeness must be entirely off-limits. The military needs a zero tolerance policy on Wokeness because Wokeness will destroy our military from the inside out.

If ever there were a situation where delusional Wokeness is going to collide head-on with reality with horrifically disastrous real-world consequences, it’s in the military. The US military defeated the Nazis, the Japanese and the German Empire, but it will not defeat Wokeness. Wokeness will be the death of the US military.

Wokeness on college campuses is bad, but it’s not an existential threat to America as a whole. Wokeness in the military, on the other hand, absolutely is a mortal threat to the country.

Play your stupid games on campus, but not in the military.

Let me give you an example of what I’m talking about: even though I personally think women aren’t pursuing STEM careers because they generally don’t give a shit about science/engineering/math, we have allowed the Woke Feminists to dictate the narrative and declare that STEM fields are Systemically Biased against Women, and that this is an Injustice, and that we need to get more women in STEM jobs Because Equality™️. The country is not going to collapse if we let the Woke Feminists have their way and promote more women in STEM jobs.

We can survive that.

But we cannot survive the Woke Feminists declaring that we need more women on the front lines of the military Because Equality™️. We cannot survive the military putting Wokeness ahead of common sense and putting trannies on the front lines.

We also cannot survive the Woke Mobs defunding the police because in their insane delusional brains, the police exist exclusively to kill innocent black people, and provide no benefit to society at all.

One of the most underrated stories of the past few years is the disgraceful Wokeness of many top military brass. Think of traitors like Lt. Col. Vindman, whose raging Trump Derangement Syndrome drove him to betray his country. Even Mattis, who most people (including myself) thought was a badass, is actually a total SJW:

The days of hardass, no-bullshit, cigar-chomping rightwing military generals are long gone. Our military brass is not full of men like Patton, MacArthur, Pershing and Schwarzkopf anymore.

Now we have guys like David Petraeus, who had an affair with his biographer and wound up sharing a bunch of classified information with her.

We won’t survive this. Having a strong military is the only reason us civilians can play our silly little partisan games. It’s why we have the luxury of complaining about Fake Problems like “police brutality” and “gender equality”. Due to the military making things so good for us, we have to literally make up problems to obsess over.

Wokeness will destroy the military, which will in turn destroy the country, upon which point, ironically, we will have much bigger problems to worry about–such as survival–and Wokeness will be rendered obsolete. For instance, do you think they have Wokeness in the Congo? No, they don’t have time to be Woke. They’re too preoccupied with the multiple civil wars that are ravaging their nation.

Wokeness plants the seeds of its own eventual demise, which is good news. The bad news is that Wokeness’ demise means the country’s demise. It’s going to be a long, long process of reclaiming our country’s institutions from Wokeness. But the military has to be the first priority.

Biden 2020: The Trojan Horse

You know how in old times, when a young boy would become king at an age far too young to actually rule and make decisions, then the palace advisors and the young king’s family members would rule in his name? It happened in the show Game of Thrones with Joffrey and Tommen.

Same applies for a really old king, or a really sick and incapacitated king: someone rules in his place under the title “Regent.” Or they have a group of people rule in his place as the “Regency Council.” The point is, there’s a historical precedent for what we’re seeing with Joe Biden.

If Biden wins the election and becomes President, this country will be ruled by a Regent or a Regency Council, not by Joe Biden. It won’t be official, of course. The media will still pretend Biden is still fit as a fiddle, but everyone will know what’s really going on. His deteriorated mental facilities have rendered him incapable of governing the country, and everyone around him knows this.

But the scary part is: that’s the whole point of Joe Biden 2020.

If Biden wins, we’re about to be ruled by a group of people that nobody voted for, and who could probably never get elected on their own right. They’ll be using Biden’s name-recognition and association with Barack Obama to win the White House, then installing Biden as the most blatant Figurehead President in American history.

And ruling over us will be be people who are far too radical to ever sniff the Presidency on their own.

When George W. Bush was in office, lots of people on the left thought Cheney and Bush Sr. were the ones actually calling the shots. But it was much less obvious with W. Bush than it is with Biden. At least George W. Bush knew what day of the week it was. Sure he may have had the strongest grasp on the English language, but W. Bush wasn’t senile.

On the flip side, so many more people today know Biden is almost completely gone mentally. One poll conducted by Zogby found 55% of voters thought Biden was in the early stages of dementia, including 56% of independents. A Rasmussen poll from late June claimed 40% of Americans think he has dementia, with 61% thinking he should at least address those concerns publicly. So either way, most Americans know what’s going on with Joe Biden.

Given his age, nobody actually expects him to serve out a full two terms. Sometimes he looks so bad that him lasting even one term would be a surprise.

That’s why his Vice Presidential search is a bigger deal than in past elections: not only is there a much higher likelihood that this person will become President if Biden dies, it’s also pretty obvious that from day one, his VP will have much more power and influence than any prior VP due to Biden’s inability to do the job. Biden’s VP will probably be the President Regent from the very start.

So who will it be? Who will be our true ruler if/when Biden wins the election? Right off the bat, the first guess is Barack Obama. The 22nd amendment is somewhat unclear on the matter, as it seems like it says Obama is only prohibited from being elected himself, meaning he just might be eligible to be Vice President:

“No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of President more than once.

So could Obama theoretically become President once again if he is VP and Biden dies or resigns in office? After all, Obama would not be running for office. He would not be in violation of the amendment’s text which says “no person shall be elected to the office more than twice.” Elected is the key word.

While this might seem like there’s an obvious loophole, the 12th Amendment places restrictions on the selection of Vice Presidents, and it says that you can’t name someone as your running mate if they’re not eligible to be President. But many would argue this still doesn’t actually preclude Obama because he’s only ineligible from being elected.

But it would be silly to make Obama as Biden’s VP and open up a massive constitutional can of worms that will likely be settled by a Republican Supreme Court. The easier decision would be to simply name Michelle Obama as Biden’s running mate. Buzz has been growing around Michelle for a while now, and while I don’t personally understand the buzz, the buzz is there nonetheless.

But there are no constitutional questions about Michelle Obama’s eligibility to serve as VP and potentially President. And Dems would have Barack Obama involved without actually putting him in an official government position. Making Michelle Obama the running mate is much easier.

Beyond Michelle Obama, people have mentioned Hillary, which is hilarious. Biden would be dead of “natural causes” within three months of taking office. Or he’d “commit suicide,” as so many people who stand in the Clintons’ way tend to do.

I’ve seen Susan Rice’s name mentioned, and the betting markets see Kamala Harris as the overall favorite. This is as of 7/15:

Not a single male on the list (although some would debate Michelle Obama). The Democrats have gone full Identity Politics, and gender is now not only a qualification, but the qualification. Job experience? Boring. What really stands out on a resume is being a woman–and even better if you’re a Woman of Color.

We should be getting the running mate announcement soon. I went back and looked to see when past presidential campaigns have made their running mate selections, and the earliest announcement was Trump choosing Pence on July 16, 2016. The latest was McCain choosing Palin on August 29, 2008. So probably in the next month we will see Biden’s campaign make their choice for President Regent–I mean running mate.

Sometimes you just have to take a step back and marvel at how much damage the Democrats have been able to do to democracy in America in such a short time. They rigged the Dem primary against Sanders (again) and forced Biden as the nominee. They are now pushing for mail-in voting to enable rampant vote fraud. In 2018, they introduced “ballot harvesting” in California to steal 7 Congressional seats.

And Democratic governors and mayors have, with the cover of the compliant media, deliberately mismanaged the coronavirus knowing Trump would get the blame for it. They allowed their cities to be burned down and for race riots to spread across the country for weeks on end, although I think that will backfire on them in the form of an even angrier Silent White Majority that sees the country being taken from them in front of their eyes.

And on top of all this, the Democrats’ Presidential candidate is an obvious figurehead who will not be calling the shots if and when he is elected. They’re using Biden as a Trojan Horse to get a radical minority woman in as the “shadow President,” and at that point the Biden administration will begin an assault on Trump’s America (aka White America) the likes of which have never been seen before.

That’s the plan. I hate to break it down in explicitly racial terms but rural white America is the only part of the country the Democrats don’t have control of. Mostly-white Trump supporters are the ones still not on-board with the globalist Uniparty agenda, and so they must be brought to heel.

It’s about power. Racial tensions are the means to that end. The Democrats have created, stoked, and poured lighter fluid on black rage, and now the Democrats plan to use that anti-white sentiment to destroy anyone remaining in the country that is not on-board with their radical agenda. Joe Biden, the Trojan Horse, is the key to it all.
