On The Brink

A Biden presidency will potentially end America as we know it.  Biden is a self-serving principle-less opportunist with a 50-year track record of following not leading.  He has accomplished nothing of note for our country, instead enriching himself and his family through his political connections.  Joe Biden is the poster boy for what the Swamp represents.  Any intellectually honest assessment of his current state-of-mind and his obvious inability to think on his feet or survive without his handlers ought to alarm everyone.  The man is clearly suffering from some kind of dementia or other mental disorder.  Politics aside, he is not capable of the rigors of the presidency.

Biden is a proven plagiarist.  He embellishes himself and his record because both need embellishment.  Biden’s second and current wife is the product of an open-affair conducted while both were still married.  This speaks to his lack of honor.  Biden is pro-abortion while claiming to be a Catholic.  The only thing preventing Biden from continuing to make bald-faced lies is his fear of being recorded.  When the fear of being caught is the only check on honesty, lack of character is the problem.

Biden’s behavior around children and women has all the markings of a sexual deviant.  Joe Biden is the epitome of a dirty old man.  A normal person can’t help but wince seeing Joe in action at these well-publicized photo-ops where he is in full-pervert mode.  There are multiple cringe-worthy examples of this, but Trump Derangement Syndrome has cast scales upon the eyes of the Biden faithful.

Doesn’t she look comfortable
Pervert
Need any more examples?

Under a Trump presidency pre-Covid, the country was in perhaps the greatest shape of her life.  Unemployment was statistically zero.  The stock market was in record-setting territory.  The regulatory state was being dismantled and freedom and liberty celebrated.  Prison reform, the over-haul of the military, accountability at the VA the dismantling of NAFTA, the elimination of ISIS and the killing of Solimani and El-Baghdadi, respect for Israel, control over China’s abuses in trade and the insistence that our NATO allies pay their fair share.  Legacy support for historically black colleges, the appointment of legitimate constitutionally-grounded judges instead of activist extremists and the world-wide acknowledgement that America is no longer the toothless dragon that she was under an Obama presidency.

Donald Trump kept his promises and indeed Made America Great Again.

The China flu will now be the excuse that blames the Trump administration for everything while ignoring all of the accomplishments.  All of the wannabes will Monday morning quarterback what they allegedly would have done differently and better, as if they actually know, and claim to be the better for it.  The difference is, Trump has actually done what he said he would do, and the others simply talk.

Portland, Chicago, Minneapolis, BLM, Antifa, “The Squad”, rioting, looting, arson and mayhem.  This is America’s future under Joe Biden.

Traditional American values, law, order, peace, respect for the police, the right to life, to bear arms, to peacefully assemble and to peaceably make changes to an America that has never stopped growing, improving and adjusting.  That is life under a Trump presidency.

The choice has never been more stark.  The America whose flag we salute, whose anthem we sing, who’s future we cry for and who’s legacy many have died for, or the future as defined by the degenerate Cardi-B, the feckless Kamala Harris and the senile Joe Biden. 

We are destined to remain the land of the free and the home of the brave.  Biden/Harris liberalism promises the home of the afraid and everything provided by the government for free.  This must not be the America of tomorrow.

Drivel Versus Dribble

 

Conservatives in America first and foremost see people as unique and special individuals and only secondarily as groups.  The Left prefers to categorize people into sub-sets of groups and downplays the concept of individuality, preferring instead to force people into categories, reducing them to a simple commodity.  The Left assigns sameness to groups at the expense of their uniqueness as individuals.

Where the Left sees blacks, women, the poor, the rich, the 1%, etc., Conservatives see individuals, each with unique qualities, specific challenges and all different sorts of potentials, problems and pitfalls.

The proof of this claim is easy to establish.

For example, the Left asserts the notion that because black students in a high school makeup 10% of the student body, expulsion rates higher than 10% are de facto proof of racism.  Similarly, the Left points to the fact that while blacks are approximately 13% of the US population, their incarceration rate of nearly 38% of the overall inmate population proves racism.

The only way to reach these conclusions is to view blacks as a monolithic group, no different from any other group, devoid of uniqueness, individuality or nuance.  It is a simplistic analysis completely absent of consideration for the person.

If the Left is right about this way of measuring institutional racism, the following should also be true.

The racial makeup of the National Basketball Association, (NBA) should be approximately 13% black, 18% Latino and 61% white because this is the percentage of these groups in the US population.  Major League Baseball should share the same statistics, as should professional golf, hockey, etc., if we are to accept this flawed notion that groups of people are monolithic.

How then does the Left explain that the NBA is actually 74% black, 2% Latino and only 23% white?  Baseball is 8% black, 29% Latino and 59% white.  Of the approximately 713 active players on the National Hockey League, about 32 are black, or 4.4%.

And finally, how would the Left possibly explain Tiger Woods?  Just this past weekend, golf fans all but abandoned every other player on the course to follow Woods to a second place finish.  How would the Left possibly explain Woods being the most revered golfer in history and one of the highest paid athletes of all times, black or white?

Hero World Challenge - Round Three

The NBA is under-represented by white and Latino players because the league seeks the best possible talent and it so happens that the black players are better.  While the Left is counting colors, the rest of us are seeing individuals.  Rules in schools and laws in society compel behaviors and demand consequences.  Whether expelled or incarcerated, if the process for determining this is applied fairly and equally, then color don’t matter.

Those who think otherwise are simply making excuses for poor performance, bad behavior and criminal activity, hiding behind the flawed and now disproven theory of racism by the numbers.

The Rule of Law

We hear this common phrase used frequently, however I question how many genuinely understand its meaning?  To say one believes in the rule of law is the statement of an absolute certainty.  In most speeches about law and order, you will hear along with it the phrase, “we are a nation of laws”.  It is true, the United States prides itself on being governed by laws, so why is it that while almost everyone agrees with the adage that the US is a nation of laws and that the rule of law prevails, so many on the Left act in ways that completely and totally contradict lawfulness?

rule-of-law

Laws govern immigration.  Those here unlawfully are by definition law-breakers.  The consequences of violating laws are spelled out in the law itself.  Once charged with a violation and adjudicated as guilty, the penalty is defined.  To vary from this system is the very definition of anarchy.

 

For those who disagree with the law, the proper and civil method of addressing that is to work to either amend, rescind or re-write that law.  The idea of simply violating those laws with which you disagree and accepting those with which you do is still anarchy, totally unpredictable and dependent on the mood of the individual.  The rule of law provides uniformity, conformity and calculable behavior amongst law-abiding citizens.  Knowing the law and the public’s general acceptance of those laws allows others in society to make reasoned inference on how others will behave.  Leaving compliance to the whim of individuals is unacceptable.

 

Because of an ignorance in civics and history, many on the Left are misguided regarding their philosophy on why it seems to them OK to violate immigration law.  In short, the Left believes that our history is one of not only allowing, but encouraging anyone and everyone to migrate to the US.  They believe that only in recent years, Conservatives have sought to close off migration in order to preserve the sameness of an Anglo America.  Both assertions are false.  The Left care more about illegal aliens than they do about their Conservative fellow citizens.  If they could, they would gladly trade one group for the other and disenfranchise conservatism from the landscape, importing hordes of Leftist voters so they might rein in perpetuity.  This is what they think; but few have the temerity to say so publicly.

 

American Conservatism not only believes in and celebrates our unique culture; we are dedicated to preserving that cultural history some 300 years in the making.  Those risking their lives to come here are escaping their culture and seeking ours.  American culture is no less worthy of protection than any other and assimilation is a requirement of participation in the American Experience.

The rule of law protects this unique and exceptional place for which rivers of blood have been shed in her creation and her defense.  Lady Liberty is no less worthy of that sacrifice today.

A Special Kind of Stupid

Test-Your-Supidity-Funny-Picture

I have been writing about firearms for over 30 years with the overarching objective of educating and informing those who know little to nothing about the issue.  Regardless of my best efforts, I have failed.  I am disheartened to report that many in the general population of 30 years ago has morphed from ignorant and uninformed into just plain garden variety stupid today.

Never-Underestimate-The-Power-Of-Stupid-People-In-Large-Groups-Funny-Picture

While it is accurate to acknowledge that the anti-gun, lying media complex has created and fortified the misinformation campaign against firearms, I lay the blame squarely at the feet of the gullible public that ingests this garbage.

 

Look no further than the very words of the anti-gun public in their expressions of opinion about guns.  My local newspaper’s op-ed section on Sunday printed eleven letters about firearms.  Nine of the eleven were negative and in each of those nine letters, provably false claims were made, not claims where thinking people can differ, but out-and-out falsehoods.  Of course, the Gannett newspaper prints these because the lies justify their dedication towards the anti-gun agenda.

 

Don Lemon at CNN was caught on-air not knowing the difference between a semi-automatic and a fully automatic firearm and when called on it, he declared that, “it doesn’t matter.”  Well it does matter Don.  Rejecting the truth transforms you from ignorant to willfully stupid and whoever heard that segment with Lemon and still believes him, is stupid as well.

And worse yet, the politician’s who actually are responsible for enacting the laws seem to know less about the subject that the stupid people who elect them.  California Senator Diane Feinstein, a vocal gun-hating ignoramus often mistakes a magazine for a projectile and not only doesn’t understand the differences in a bullets caliber, but clearly doesn’t want to learn because she has been in office for over 25 years, giving her plenty of time to distinguish between fact and fiction.

 

Political correctness, (PC), has declared as unacceptable calling anyone stupid.  Those who believe this are a special brand of stupid.  After we clear our head from the fog of PC, we know and accept that certain people are stupid and for this, there is no known cure, so I am finished trying to educate the illiterate.  Those voices simply don’t matter anymore because they’re too stupid to bother arguing with.  While these fools are entitled to their own opinions, they cannot construct their own alternative facts.

The millions of us who legally and safely own firearms have had enough lectures from stupid people devoid of facts, blabbering on with the talking points from their fellow travelers who control their small minds and forge their very opinions, useful idiots as Lenin called them.

Here is the reality.  Governmental failure at all levels is to blame for almost every mass tragedy, from 911 to Parkland, yet the useful idiots focus on the firearms.  Now that same government of repeated failures wants to “fix” the problem?  Indeed, a special kind of stupid embraces that.

Dog-Whistles

Here’s a lesson in three popular liberal dog-whistle phrases so when you hear them, you’ll know you’re listening to either an idiot, a compete shill for the politically correct, or in all likelihood, a possessor of both.

dog-whistle

Liberal dog-whistle phrase #1

 

“Gun Violence”

When libs use this, it is indicative of their close study of the assigned talking points because in the real world of actual spontaneous conversation, “gun violence” isn’t used.

By linking “violence” with the word “gun”, this is an effort to equate the negativity and nastiness of all that is this violent with the tool called a firearm.

Violence is violence.  Things aren’t violent, people are violent.  To the person beset upon with actions of violence, it hardly matters the instruments used in the administration of that violence.  Guns are inanimate tools, incapable of action without human intervention.  Will does not exist in objects.  Will or intent, only exists in the hearts and minds of men.  How they carry out that will or intent does in no way inflict vilification on the objects they choose to use.  Just as a hammer is great for nails, it is not so great for skulls.  And just like no one equates evil and violence with a hammer, it is no less rational to expect a difference when describing a firearm.  Box-cutters, butter knives and beehives have all been involved in killing.  None of these have intent or evil built into them; it was the violent intent of a person that used these things.

When the Lakeland Florida kids went back to school yesterday, surrounded by 50-armed police officers, no one was equating those armed officers as purveyors of gun violence.  But think about it, if guns were in and of themselves evil and violent, that must be the case regardless of who possesses that gun, right?  It just does not make sense.

 

“Gun Safety”

All firearms are equipped with a safety.  Most firearms have several safeties.  Modern firearms are safe against accidental discharge.  When the libs use the phrase “gun-safety”, they don’t mean anything useful; it is simply a rouse to again equate a lack of safety with firearms.  By repeating the words gun and safety repeatedly, eventually the libs hope to convince the idiots of the world that guns are just plain not safe and again, the concept of being safe is reserved to the actions of people not objects.

And finally, the mother of all Dog-Whistle phrases:

 

 

“Common-Sense Gun Laws”

Another classic lib tactic, use a phrase like “common-sense”, tie it to gun laws, and then challenge anyone to be against what is only common-sense.  The problem is that this requires one to believe that the tens of thousands of gun laws on the books are somehow devoid of common sense.

The reason this particular dog-whistle gets so much traction, is that the propaganda that has been spread for years, courtesy of a complicit media, has lied about the topic for so long and in so many ways, that the low-information citizen that has chosen to receive his news from these sources, has been brainwashed into believing that the country is completely lacking in firearms regulations when nothing could be further from the truth, but then again, if you keep your head up your ass, wonder not why you’re stupid.
