Repost – The Enemy of Democracy

Saw this post on Knuckledraggin’

Fair warning. I didn’t ready the article linked to in the post. I didn’t have to.  That’s the point. The headline tells me all I need to know, but that’s not enough. Read the comments. The vast majority of those commenting didn’t need to read this guy’s drivel either. They know. They understand. Now all we gotta do is get the word out to those who don’t.


God Bless Nancy Pelosi

While she says she’s a practicing Catholic, somewhere in my mind I see herscreaming in an unholy terror when someone says God Bless you. Well, Nancy, get ready for this… I forgive you. Sure it’s what Jesus said to do…

Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

But even more than that, I’ve found it simply takes too much energy to hold unforgiveness against anyone. And if any soul on this earth is undeserving of my energy, you’re in the front of the line.

Forgiveness aside, I do not believe it is ungodly to unveil this woman’s evil so we can all see it for what it is. Surely much of what she has done, she’s done openly and, is quite brazen about it. In my last post I regaled my readers with her past failures – her utterly disastrous ACA effort, her impeachment proceedings and her January 6 committee. These are only the highlights of her unseemly efforts. To dig deeper, it is necessary to expand our view. Fair warning, these are things, once viewed, that cannot be unseen.

Now, I know this is hard for many of us. I, personally resist the urge to don a garlic necklace and hold up a cross whenever I hear her speak. I would, too, if I believed in such fairy tales. However you must, grit your teeth and listen to what Nancy Pelosi says. Take notes. Here’s the key to everything she says… when she speaks of anyone who opposes her, when she accuses anyone of anything, she is really talking about herself and her own hoards.

Inssurection? Nancy and company? Treason? Yep. Terrorism? You bet. As I pointed out in an earlier post, Nancy and her party are the true insurrectionists. They began in earnest when Donald Trump was first elected President. Her and her deep state cronies, along with other minor minions, were at the forefront of the Russian collusion hoax. January 6? Who refused National Guard protection? Can anyone actually believe they didn’t know President Trump would draw a massive crowd? Were they blind to his rallies? This is not to even suggest there was any intent at all on Trump supporters to break any laws whatsoever, but with crowds of these sizes, it would be wise to take all the help one could get. Yet, Nancy P, the person in charge of Capital security, refused. She might be on more solid ground accusing President Trump of insurrection had SHE requested extra hands and Trump refused but no, it didn’t happen that way, did it?

Now Ms. Speaker is accusing republican controlled states of trying to ruin democracy by passing legislation ensuring true and accurate counts of legitimate voters. What does she want instead? A voting free for all where anyone can vote whether they are citizens or not, or even whether they are in the country legally or not. Heck, she likely doesn’t care if they vote at all. If someone doesn’t want to vote, they’ll vote for them per ballot harvesting. I wouldn’t be surprised if she snuck in legislation paving the way for the dead to vote. It’s not like they haven’t voted democrat already for years – this would just validate those votes.

With everything going on, I’m wondering when she’s going to start accusing her opponents of insider trading. Maybe that is too close to home now that people are looking closely at her own stock trades. This is not to say Nancy Pelosi is corrupt. In fact she must be some sort of financial whiz considering her net worth tops $100 million. That is extraordinary considering her career of self public service. I just wish she’d use some of her financial genius to help balance the national budget.

As her career in politics extends for so many years, it would take volumes to account for all the damage she’s done to our nation, not to mention her current home state of California. At least I think she still lives there. Word is, she’s just bought new digs in Jupiter Florida to the tune of about $25 mil. Of course a Grrrgle search turns up loads of “fact checks” denying the report. So I did my own fact check just to see. What did I find? Funny you should ask. My results were inconclusive. Zillow reports a sale of a property at 429 S Beach Rd, Hobe Sound, FL 33455 for $24 mil on Dec 23, 2021. Property records (the Palm Beach County Appraiser system or PAPA) show no such sale at all to anybody. Ain’t that strange? It was not easy to find this search engine, nor all that simple to use but eventually I searched for ALL the properties in Palm Beach County sold in the last 90 days with the word “south”. I didn’t find any properties selling for that amount. None. Not even close. The closest sale was $2.5 mil. Next I performed a county-wide search of all large properties sold within the last six months. While I came up with 2068 properties (I went with $1 plus – big mistake) nothing showed up in the $22-$27 mil range in Jupiter. Nor did any come up with anything resembling Nancy Pelosi. Now there were some purchases in the name of trusts in that range. None in Jupiter. None screamed “Nancy Pelosi”. At this point such is pure speculation. As long as she doesn’t move next door to me (fat chance), I don’t much care where her living corpse rots.

Before she became the Speaker of the House, I’d never heard of Nancy Pelosi. Since that time she has proven herself as an effective democrat sycophant with a talent for forwarding the democrat, read socialist/communist. agenda. That said, she’s also been effective in proving what a train wreck her party’s platform really is. The thing to keep in mind, their agenda, like their proclamations are not their true goal. What she and her ilk are actually working towards is the complete and utter destruction of our Constitutional Republic. She really does want to move the nation towards “democracy”, i. e. mob rule. Once The Party controls every election without question they can then move, either covertly or overtly to autocracy.

As we say in the South, Nancy, Bless Your Heart.

Thank You Nancy Pelosi


It is well past time to show appreciation for the Democrat’s legislative, political and, dare I say, spiritual leader – the Speaker of the House of Representatives… Nancy Pelosi. From her efforts to push through the ACA, the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare (maybe it should have been called Pelosicare) in 2010 to her overseeing not one but two successful impeachment efforts of Donald J.Trump to her forging ahead with the January 6 House committee, we Americans owe her a deep and heartfelt debt of gratitude.

From my past posts you may wonder if I the above is tongue and cheek. Not at all. Have I experienced a new wokeness? A change of heart? No. Have I gone totally nuts? Well… that’s beside the point. The fact is I mean it and I mean it sincerely. You see…

What suddenly dawned on me was the true value of all Speaker Pelosi has accomplished. During her reign as Queen of the Democrats she has proven beyond any shadow of a doubt how totally inept her party is. The ACA was disastrous. Even after it was rendered somewhat benign, it continues to spew out toxic puss on our nation’s citizens. While she succeed in impeaching President Trump twice, her efforts only highlighted the desperation of her party to be seen as relevant. She failed. Miserably. In both cases, her impeachments turned out to be a freak show with her own prosecution supplying the freaks. It was worse than Geraldo’s opening of Al Capone’s vaults. It was more disappointing of Dallas’ dream season. There was no fizz in the can at all. None.

This brings us to Nancy’s January 6 committee debacle. It has now been over a year since this event. She still insists on calling it an “insurrection” even though no one has uncovered enough evidence to even charge anyone with insurrection. This from a Department of Justice that loves nothing more than to accuse now and scramble for evidence later, now matter how long an accused, though innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, rots in a jail cell – often in inhumane conditions unstable for a rabid dog. Nobody with a sliver of conscience denies laws were broken that day. Unlike scores of prosecutors scattered across our nation, nobody is demanding anyone be released without significant bail or not prosecuted at all. We citizens, support, nay demand justice be served in all cases. Justice. Not persecution. There is a difference.

Yet Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 committee once again proves how inept she is as a speaker, possibly as a human being. As the lead representative for her party she is the poster child for what is wrong with the democrats. So, as a citizen who embraces our Constitutional Republic and our God-given freedoms enumerated by our founding document, I applaud Nancy Pelosi. We only need to open our eyes to see her “accomplishments”. Then we can understand how brilliantly she contrasts the principles of our nation.

Thank you Nancy Pelosi. You are a shining example of everything those of us who love freedom do not want in our representatives. If there ever was a silver-tongued serpent spewing out delicious sounding phrases entirely impregnated with deadly poison, it would look and sound exactly like you.

Note: this is the second of two parts of my examination of Nancy Pelosi and her reign as Queen of the Democrats. Stay tuned for more.

American Gulag – January 6 Political Prisoners

Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit has stayed hot on the heels of the miscreants who have illegally and unconstitutionally jailed and held without bail those who dared protest the 2020 election in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021.

Now he has launched a site AMERICAN GULAG to further publicize the plight of those American Citizens held in inhumane conditions with little, if any, regard to their well-being, much less their rights as citizens. In support of his efforts, I’ve taken the liberty of converting his sidebar announcing the site into a banner displayed to your right.

In addition, I am posting Jim’s plea on The Gateway Pundit to send Christmas Cards to some of those prisoners. While it is too late, of course to send Christmas Cards, it is not too late to write! Any mail these prisoners get is sure to be a welcome treasure. Imagine how a simple letter can offer hope and comfort at a time of deep despair! Also note these letters will be read by their captors. The very fact citizens are aware and concerned should garner some attention. Keep in mind, we humans tend to pay more attention to “overheard” conversations than to someone speaking directly to us, especially if what is being said is something the eavesdropper doesn’t want to hear.

Actually, I might as well post these prisoners addresses right here:

Prisoner 1:

1901 D ST. SE

Or Prisoner 2:

1901 D ST. SE

Or Prisoner 3:

1901 D ST. SE

At this time I cannot comment on what I think of these men and women because they have yet to be charged with anything!

It does  not matter whether you think they are guilty of some crime or another. NO ONE in this nation should be held without charge or bail for an extended length of time. I believe the standard in this country is 48 hours at most.

Even worse is the conditions these prisoners are held under. They are being abused mentally and physically. Even those convicted of the most heinous crimes deserve better treatment.

This is not our America!

Please do what you can. Write them. Contact your representatives. Hound the DOJ. Fax the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader. (Emails are too easy to ignore.) Let’s make some noise!


NO, The Constitutional Republic has NOT Ended… Reply to a Comment

A recent blog post (not here) declared our Constitutional Republic has ended. I am reposting my slightly edited response to this comment here. 

As hard as the commies have tried, they have not been able to rid themselves of our Constitution. What they have succeeded at is ignoring it and convincing us citizens it is no longer valid. They are wrong.

Our Constitution, at the base level is a piece of paper. Mere words. But those words have meaning. They are relevant. Those words are relevant because they recognize We the People as self-governing citizens. Those clowns sitting in our nation’s capital and the minions they’ve appointed are NOT the government. WE are. WE have the authority. WE have the true power. They know this and they tremble at the thought of us flexing our muscle.

True, the usurpers have weakened us. They have deluded us. They have outright conned us, but we are not defeated.

Interestingly enough, it was one response to Bill DeBlasio’s latest mad-date that shed brilliant light on the solution. A lawyer was asked if this was legal. She replied that while the courts typically put the kabash on federal mandates, they tended to grant local authorities wide latitude. Think about that. Couple that thought with the words of the tenth amendment. The real power is very much local. the usurpers want us to forget this.

We the People need to reclaim our birthright, our power from the bottom up. Some citizens have already begun this process by targeting school boards, etc.. Once we reclaim our counties, we can force important issues to light with our state and local representatives. Instead of going to them, they need to come to US. They work for US. One important aspect of all of this is we also need to control or even break the party system. The politicians derive much of their influence via their party, or rather the party bosses grant influence as they see fit. This needs to stop.

In order for the Constitutional Republic to end, something has to replace it. The usurpers can do their best to work around it but until they traitorously deny it, it remains THE law of the land.

Proof Revealed! There Really WAS an Insurrection on January 6!

There is no longer any doubt, January 6, 2020 should forever go down in history as Insurrection Day. Today I will cite actual proof of this terrible truth and worse – the insurrectionists succeeded! Note here, I cannot and will not take any credit at all for uncovering the facts leading to this awful revelation. This was done by true patriots doggedly seeking to uncover what really happened. Despite efforts of those involved to hide behind “righteous” facades and absolute denial of the facts, not to mention outright lights, those who refused to accept the lies and instead pursued truth are winning out. While the insurrectionists indeed won on January 6, their victory will be short-lived. The curtain of deception they’ve installed is soon to be torn down, revealing all.

Insurrection (definition): a violent uprising against an authority or government. We all witnessed the violence. Video of the events of that sorrowful day are everywhere. More and more video evidence is revealed daily. Since then, the intent of this violence has become clear – those promulgating this violence fully intend to overthrow our government. They are not done yet, but they are doomed to be thwarted. We, the people, will not let this happen. The culprits and their cohorts are making every effort to obscure the truth and cover their tracks, but a contingent of true patriots snap at their heels. They will soon scatter for the dark recesses like the cockroaches they are.

Who are these insurrectionists? They are not the political prisoners captured and incarcerated by our government. Rather the true insurrectionists sit in the highest places in our government. They occupy the most coveted seats in the legislature and in the administration. They misdirect the truth by pointing fingers at innocents, stirring up clouds of misdirection to confuse and confound this nation. They stand in plain sight, claiming sole possession of the high road while all the time it is they who stand profoundly on the bloodied bodies of the patriots they themselves trampled to save their own sorry skins. Observe.

Begin with the murder of Ashley Babbitt. The can be no other word for what happened to her. In any other circumstance, the nation would be demanding the shooter be put on trial. Instead, this Capital Police Lieutenant was quickly and quietly exonerated, but only after months of authorities refusing to even name the man behind the fatal gun. They were hiding from the beginning. Why? Because they all knew this murder caught on video for the world to see was inexcusable from the start.

Recently more video has surfaced revealing more murderous behavior by Capital Police. This time in the Capitol Tunnel. The absolute brutality seen in these videos should outrage every American regardless of their political views. Once again, rather than condemnation of these heinous acts, the culprits, their bosses and their cohorts remain silent. One can envision them hiding in some dark corner praying to their gods of government to protect them and absolve them of their complicity.

Now there is more. For months now, the name Ray Epps has circulated around the internet. This mystery man is seen and heard in video encouraging citizens to storm the Capital, as early as the night before the actual events of January 6. Several present called him out as a Fed. Such accusations apparently did not phase him. Now a story in Revolver News goes even further. They’ve found strong and disturbing evidence of Epps and others coordinating to breech the Capital. This article and other reports strongly suggest there were at least two teams, one led by Epps and other led by a man Revolver has dubbed the “ScaffoldCommander”. This ScaffoldCommander may actually be the top guy leading the entire operation. All indications are these teams were government agents. Furthermore these were decidedly moving against Trump and his supporters. Here’s why:

First consider the complete lack of interest by the alphabet agencies, the Democratic-controlled Congress, the DOJ and the Biden administration. They are determinedly oblivious to these men. Meanwhile Federal SWAT teams descend in force on common citizens, many yet to be charged while being held for months. For a group so publicly intent on uncovering the “truth” of January 6, they yawn at real evidence of the very things they claim to be looking for, if they even bother to acknowledge the existence. Second, there are numerous documented cases of Federal involvement and instigation of similar events, including the alleged kidnapping plot of Michigan’s Governor Whitmer. No one can honestly say the federal government is beyond suspicion in this. Third, this isn’t the first time agents of the federal government have moved against Donald Trump. In fact there have been several, often congruent actions against President Trump. These treasonous individuals have not only NOT been removed and held for trial but they’ve often been rewarded and/or promoted.

Now consider Peter Navarro, a former Trump advisor. He recently disclosed the Trump administration plan for Jan 6, saying the advance on the Capital thwarted the efforts of Trump’s team. VP Mike Pence was supposed to challenge certification in states where the results were questionable, allowing for further investigation. Instead, chaos ensued, ending in a quick certification with almost no debate on the validity of some electoral votes. In other words, the attack on the Capital worked in favor of the insurrectionists.

Since January 6, the insurrectionists have dominated the narrative surrounding the attack on the Capital. Anyone questioning the election or the talking points of the democrats is instantly labeled a “terrorist” or worse. They’ve worked overtime to stop the mouths of any dissenters from their version of events. Debate is all but outlawed. Why? As the truth emerges, the reasons become evident. The true insurrectionists are scrambling to hold on to the power they’ve usurped. Why else would they withhold thousands of hours of video evidence? Why else would they maintain an iron grip over most all of the evidence in their hands? Why else would they jail hundreds of citizens without bail or charge for months when these same people demand the instantaneous release of hardened criminals all across our land?

The truth is clear. The insurrectionists were indeed victorious on January 6, 2021. They successfully executed a plot to seize power in our nation’s Capital and have held it ever since. They did so with premeditated violence. They’ve shredded our constitution before our eyes. They point the way to falsehoods while attempting to obscure the truth. It’s not working. We know, at least in part. We will know the truth. Wait for it.

Response to “What Constitution?” Comment

Ken Lane over at Knuckledraggin My Life Away added this comment to a post he made:

Our Constitution isn’t anything more than a museum piece to 90% of our politicians and at least 50% of our citizens.

Ken, you are so right. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that we’ve all been duped. Many decry the brainwashing of our children by public “educators” today. The sad fact is, we’ve all been brainwashed to a certain extent. Public education brainwashing began decades before any of us were born. John Dewey (1859-1952) is largely credited with championing the farce we now call “education”.

After the Rittenhouse verdict, “protesters” in Chicago called for communism to be implemented. Recently pResident Joe Biden all but proclaimed “democracy” a failure and autocracy as the solution. The left yearns for “revolution” while the right anticipates Civil War II. All of these attempt to reject our Constitution in favor of who knows what?

Consider the statement by Joe Biden. He starts out by asking “can Democracy function”? No matter what anyone says about what he says afterword, his premise is totally wrong! Why? Because our nation is NOT a “democracy”. It is a Constitutional Republic!

Time and time again, I have stated this important distinction. Why? Because the first attack on our Constitution is denying it even exists! Calling our system a “democracy” denies the truth. Our system is a representative republic deriving authority from our Constitution.

As citizens, we further this fraud every time we bemoan “the government”. Why? Because WE are the government! We are self-governing citizens who elect representatives to “take care of business” in our stead. They, in turn, hire employees to manage day to day tasks. All if this is paid for by us taxpayers. IF our representatives and/or our employees are not doing their jobs to our satisfaction, it is OUR responsibility to hold them accountable.

Why, then, do people protest in the streets? They do so because they are ignorant. They neither understand nor comprehend our system of government. Likewise, we citizens are ignorant because we have consistently allowed those we choose to represent us to ignore us.

We have allowed the “two party” system to battle for control of our nation. Both parties have the same goal. That goal is to expand the control and influence of their party. By allowing them to fight things out according to their “philosophical” differences, we have ceded control to the party bosses and those who own them. We’ve traded our constitutional republic, a “bottom up” system where self-governing citizens maintain control by holding our representatives accountable to a “top down” system where control lays in the hands of those who can afford to buy the politicians.

Our Constitution is far more than the document. It is not a mere tattered piece of paper languishing in the National Archives. It is us. It is WE the People. The Constitution is the law of the land because We the People declare it so. The Constitution acknowledges our God-given authority to govern ourselves.

We don’t need no stinking civil war. We don’t need no stinking “revolution”. We only need to stand up and claim our birthright – our right to rule and to hold those we’ve chosen accountable to represent our interests and to act accordingly.

Omicron COVID variant – Time to Panic? Or Rejoice?

The first reports of the new Covid variant dubbed Omicron warned this is the most contagious variant to date. Joe Biden takes fast action, for him, and slams the door on South African countries. Meanwhile Tony Fauci is saying the latest version is probably already in America, in essence, the horse was out long before the barn door was shut. He did not say he was instrumental in walking it over the the States himself and he likely never will. Time to panic? Well, already the power mongers are gearing up to again assert massive control, in particular pushing for 100% vaccinations globally.

But wait!

According to the Botswana Presidential Covid-19 Task Force, “The preliminary report revealed all four [patients] had been previously vaccinated for COVID-19”. So this begs the question… whats the point? The jab is obviously ineffective in preventing infection from the new variant. Meanwhile, our Pfavorite Pfarmicutical manupfacturer, Pfiezer, says they’ll have this issue fixed in 100 days. 100 days? Seems to me this rampant new Covid.3.0 will have had its run through the planet by then. Then again, lack of utility or need has never stopped the power mongers from dictating the jab before. Now here’s a thought, what if, rather than fearfully panicking, we rejoice and embrace this new variant? What? Have I gone nuts? Well, that’s another issue. Let’s talk Omicron, shall we?

Here is the latest from South Africa:

The South African Medical Association debunked the hysteria over the Omicron COVID variant on Saturday.

Angelique Coetzee, the chairwoman of the South African Medical Association who first raised the alarm of the new COVID variant, gave an interesting update and now says the new variant known as the ‘Omicron’ causes “unusual but mild symptoms.”

Hmmm, “unusual but mild symptoms.”, interesting enough, but it gets better.

“It presents mild disease with symptoms being sore muscles and tiredness for a day or two not feeling well. So far, we have detected that those infected do not suffer the loss of taste or smell. They might have a slight cough. There are no prominent symptoms. Of those infected some are currently being treated at home,” said Dr. Coetzee to Sputnik.

So far, mass hospitalizations are not part of the picture. Some patients contracting the virus have been hospitalized. Reportedly these patients are under 40 years of age. Is this reason for concern? Certainly. My question is what are they being hospitalized for? Additionally, how early is this being detected and treated? Let’s face it, sore muscles and being tired with a slight cough won’t get many people to a doctor unless the symptoms persist far more than a day or two. It took me over a week to seek medical help and I had strep as well as Covid.

A couple of days ago, Pierre Kory, M.D., M.P.A.. Pulmonary and Critical Care Specialist; President, Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC Alliance), whom I consider a leading authority on Covid-19 treatment, stated he expected, at best this new variant could be effectively treated with such medications as Ivermectin. While he admitted, it was too early to tell, he noted the Delta variant was treatable, but required a higher dosage. Dr. Kory first came to my attention when he testified before a Senate committee about Ivermectin in December of 2020. He advocated its use citing actual research in the field. When a family member contracted Covid in October 2021, I had a heated discussion with a medical professional who absolutely refused to consider treatment with Ivermectin under any circumstances. She claimed Ivermectin damaged the liver. I refrained from pointing out that acetaminophen (aka Tylenol) is also known to damage the liver when abused. Subsequent research suggested she was correct about her assertion – (massive doses of) Ivermectin can indeed damage one’s liver. Just like anything that is abused. Under normal use, this contraindication is minimal.

Her attitude is strangely mirrored throughout the medical field. Only now are efforts to treat this virus taken at all seriously. Even then they take a back seat to the almost holy grail of vaccination – to the point of nearly totally ignoring the medical issues, such as myocarditis, reports of weakened immune systems and even an alarming increase in still births. Are these real concerns? It is hard to tell as there seems to be serious documented efforts to suppress any scientific data or studies to provide answers. Instead, sources that should be trusted, such as the CDC steadfastly deny almost any suggestion that these vaccines are at all unsafe. These same institutions fought tooth and nail against any early treatments.

So why not take a different path and embrace the new variant? No, I don’t mean anyone should go seeking to get sick, but if this Omicron is so virulent then it is reasonably safe to assume a lot of people will get it. Maybe that is a good thing. Maybe it is God’s or nature’s way of protecting mankind from this virus. It is possible those of us who have had Covid previously have antibodies already to help us fight the new variant. If so the new variant could also help those who have yet to be infected to build antibodies against Covid infections. In other words, a natural vaccine in a sense.

So with available treatments and what now appears to be a rather mild, if highly noninfectious variant, why not embrace it? Instead of pounding that panic button again, lets consider a different approach. Shrug our shoulders, do what we do everyday and if we start feeling under the weather, achy and develop a cough, well, we can seek treatment. Those at a higher risk such as co morbidity issues should of course take whatever precautions they deem necessary. As the current jab looks like it will have no effect on Omicron, I see no relevance to rush out to get jabbed against it. Nor do I see the logic of waiting 100 days or more for a jab upgrade. The virus won’t wait, why should you?

Once and For All: Kyle Rittenhouse Is No Hero

I’ve seen this claim on both the left and the right. It is wrong. Kyle Rittenhouse is no hero. Not at all. He did nothing heroic. Not. One. Thing. At least on that fateful night when he shot three people. One might rightfully grant him kudos for his testimony in court and his subsequent statements after the trial. However, it certainly appears to me that so many are determined to label his actions on the night for which he was tried and acquitted for as heroic. I strongly disagree.

Kyle Rittenhouse defended his life. End of story. Whatever else one might say about him and his actions it all boils down to that. It was self preservation, plain and simple. There is nothing wrong with that. Self defense is our God-given, constitutionally protected right. It was his right. He acted accordingly and rightfully so. This is the crux – the very point Kyle Rittenhouse correctly defended his actions when he was wrongfully charged and tried. This is the spearhead we need to thrust into the false balloon of the left.

One may debate about Kyle Rittenhouse’s actions before and/or after the shootings. Debate all you want, if Rittenhouse did anything the prosecution could have charged him with – they would have done so without hesitation. The only conclusion left to make is while those actions may have been ill-advised they were not illegal. Let him without sin cast the first stone.

During closing arguments, the prosecution tried to paint those who attacked Kyle Rittenhouse as heroes. They tried to contrast Rittenhouse by anticipating, likely incorrectly, that the defense would say Kyle Rittenhouse was a hero. Both sides knew this would be a mistake. The stand the defense took from the beginning was Kyle Rittenhouse acted in self-defense. Nothing more. Nothing less. It was the correct and accurate defense. The men who were shot were shot because they threatened the life on Kyle Rittenhouse. The question put to the jury was essentially “was Kyle Rittenhouse reasonably in fear for his life each time he pulled the trigger?”. The jury replied in each case, “yes”.

Waukesha and Darrell Brooks: Let’s Not Be the Left

No question, what happened in Waukesha is terrible beyond belief. Nor do I doubt from what I’ve seen that Darrell Brooks is far from most citizens’ idea of an upstanding citizen. With these two things in mind, let us not forget the principle of the presumption of innocence.

So far, I’ve not only seen dozens of comments concerning Brooks in multiple social media and other formats but I’ve seen news-focused organizations, from websites to blogs to television broadcasts do exactly what we indignantly screamed about concerning Rittenhouse. They’ve tried and convicted Brooks already. This is not America. This is NOT how we do things.

If Mr. Brooks ends up convicted in a fair trial then many of those who now call him “murderer” or some other foul and possibly appropriate names,  may then breathe a sigh of relief. Their words will be verified and they won’t likely get sued. But what if he is found not guilty? Well, gee, guys, I guess you’d better lawyer up. Fact is, you’d deserve it, even if he was prosecuted by the likes of Binger and company. I wouldn’t shed a tear. What concerns me is what kind of people are we on the right to become? Are we going to follow the example of those we despise? Try and hang Mr. Brooks right here, right now? Pronounce sentence and carry out a death penalty? The term is “lynch mob”? Is this who we want to be? I certainly do not.

May I suggest we take one step back? I have no problem publishing facts about the Waukesha tragedy. Nor do I have any issues with anyone who wishes to publish facts about Darrell Brooks. Let’s be sure they are indeed facts. Guilty or innocent of the crimes he is now accused of, Mr. Brooks has had some extensive issues with the law, all documented. Guilty or innocent of the crimes he is now accused of, someone needs to answer for what appears to be repeated leniency towards a habitual offender. From the looks of things, I’d say we need to seek answer from a lot of someones. Any thorough investigation is sure to reveal many more individuals with similar records.

In short, tragic as Waukesha is, what sort of horrors lie beneath the surface? Rather than this one incident would you feel better if only one person died times 100? 1000? I know I wouldn’t. Yet this is exactly what our broken legal system is likely to indicate once the curtain is pulled back. I said “broken” but I cannot say for sure this is accurate. While I do not believe our system was originally designed this way, certain “tweaks”, such as the “no bail” movement have certainly corrupted it.

Some have said our justice system is the best the world has every seen. This may be true. I’m no expert, but even if this is true, it is far from perfect. With this in mind, I am not advocating as some are, tearing down the system and building anew. We have, I think, a solid base from which we’ve built a rickety house of cards. Let’s take what is good and make it better.

One of the best things about our justice system as it stands today is an accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. We cannot lose this. Let us not discard it. Let us not become the left.

The Real Reason Rittenhouse Trial Is Important

Adding on to the growing mountain of opinions of why the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse is significant. I’ll add my bit to the pile because so many seem to miss what could be the most important aspect. Many contend, based on the evidence, no charges should have been filed in the first place. I agree. This, in itself, is significant. Not only did the prosecution totally fail to produce an iota of evidence during their presentation to support their case, they actually presented a solid case for the defense. In their panic in the end, they scrambled to include a single shred, the last-minute video left on their doorstep by the “evidence fairy”. It was a badly executed Hail Mary play to salvage what was obviously a losing effort. To anyone who dared to view the case based on the evidence, Kyle Rittenhouse clearly acted in self defense.

It is important to note this prosecution team may go down is history as being among slimiest, most underhanded and yes, possibly unlawful actors in the history of the United States legal system. Ask yourself… how hard can it be to make lawyers look bad? For them, it seemed effortless. If I were a member of the legal profession, I’d be demanding they brought up on charges. Even the most vile ambulance chaser should be screaming for their heads. Then again, maybe not. When I think about it, Binger and Kraus have actually elevated my opinion of ambulance chasers.

In the first place, one must question why charges were ever filed, especially just 48 hours after the shootings. The only evidence that so much as promised to cause any doubt at all, was that last minute video, included after the prosecution rested. At best, this so-called evidence was awful, but that wasn’t enough for the prosecution. They fudged on the copy they were required by law to give to the defense, substituting a low resolution copy for the high resolution copy that should have been give to them. They also argued to include a greatly manipulated still shot from the video, generated from software that openly states is not to be sued for forensic purposes. But that’s not all…

Twice, during the trial, the judge openly reproofed the prosecutors for brazen “misconduct”. (My word for it, I do not know what the proper terminology should be.) Some legal experts stated their actions were grounds for a mistrial with prejudice. Indeed motions for a mistrial were entered by the defense. A motion was also filed concerning the “Hail Mary evidence”. Was this bad enough? Not at all.

More than once in the closing arguments, the prosecution misstated the law and/or facts to create their fairy tale version of the events of that night. What they ignored was their own failure to prove what they promised in their opening argument. In his closing argument, Mr. Binger went so far as to state “You lose the right to self defense when you’re the one who at (sic) the gun”. Really? Since when? According to FBI statistics 692 people were killed in 2017 by “unarmed” individuals. This is less than the number of those killed by all rifles (403). How many of those victims would have died had they the means to defend themselves? The prosecution also made implied several times Rittenhouse had no cause to fear for this life because two of the three men shot were not “armed”. Again, Huber twice struck Rittenhouse with his skateboard, something the prosecution ridiculed the idea that such a thing could be lethal.

Mr. Binger went so far as to label those who attacked Kyle Rittenhouse as “heroes”. He inaccurately tried to brand Rittenhouse as an “active shooter” whom his attackers were bravely attempting to disarm. Adding to his folly, he claimed the defense would try to call Kyle Rittenhouse a hero. If there were any heroes in the room, it would be the jurors. As citizens who watched their hometown burn a year ago, facing the threat of it happening again as a direct result of their decision and possibly facing danger to themselves and their loved ones, they stuck to the facts of the case, returning a verdict of “not guilty” on all counts. How much easier would life be for them if they sent Kyle Rittenhouse to jail for the rest of his life or simply returned no verdict at all?

How many times did the prosecution bewail those who lives were lost that night? Time after time, Mr. Binger, drove home the idea that Kyle Rittenhouse as “someone who has no remorse, no regard for life only cares of about himself”. He states “All life is sacred.” Seriously, Mr. Binger? What about the life of the eighteen year-old young man whom you callously brought the trial? Whom you scrambled and apparently cheated to convict when very the evidence you presented vindicated him? When your own partner face palmed himself after your star witness blew your case? How much remorse would you have had about the defendant’s life if you had succeed in essentially taking it? For the record, I have no issues convicting a defendant proven guilty by actual factual evidence and true testimony. You had neither of these from the beginning.

The prosecution had no case. This was evident from the start. Enter the mainstream media. Almost for the moment of the first report, they screamed murder, white supremacy, vigilantism. They demanded justice for the poor “victims”. I have yet to hear one MSM source reporting on the criminal records of those who attacked Kyle Rittenhouse. If one were to try Mr. Rittenhouse via the media, he would never see the light of day. Social media stamped the “misinformation” label on nearly anything or anyone who dared suggest Rittenhouse’s innocence. Similarly, attempts to use social media to raise funds for his defense were thwarted. One Virginia police officer was fired for donating a mere $25 for his defense. None questioned how these actions defy the long-standing principle of presumed innocence.

Now that the jury in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial has returned their verdict of not guilty on all counts, the MSM and those who have condemned him are froth with anger. Several claiming allegiance to Black Lives Matter and similar organizations threatened violence should the “wrong” verdict be returned. Now many of those same individuals, along with others are proclaiming how unjust all of this is.

Here is a smattering of what some had to say (via Yahoo News and UK Independent):

Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., said in a tweet that the outcome of the trial was itself an indictment of the U.S. judicial system.

NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson:

The verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case is a travesty and fails to deliver justice on behalf of those who lost their lives as they peacefully assembled to protest against police brutality and violence.

Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY said in a tweet, “What we are witnessing is a system functioning as designed and protecting those it was designed for.”

Vice President Kamala Harris told reporters after the trial that the verdict “really speaks for itself”.

She added: “As many of you know, I’ve spent a majority of my career working to make the criminal justice system more equitable. And clearly, there’s a lot more work to do.”

These comments along others form the crux of my contention. All of these commentators appear ready to not only disregard the facts of the case, ignore the presumption of innocence, reject the verdict of a jury that decided this case in favor of the defendant despite enormous pressure against this. Why? Why are they so intent that Kyle Rittenhouse be declared guilty?

Kyle Rittenhouse is a pawn here. He is expendable. As with Mr. Binger, they care not at all for him. What they do care about is the destruction of our nation, including our system of justice. Rather than a jury of one’s peers deciding on the facts of a case, they appear to want public opinion to prevail as judge and jury. If they all agree someone is guilty then so be it. This is how this same group treats anyone who dares challenge their doctrines. Today, canceling those who stray from accepted dogma has become a national pastime, as that Virginia policeman was severely punished for the audacity of wanting to help a young man defend himself discovered.

There exist several loud, vocal and well-funded groups who are determined to dismantle our constitutional republic so it can be replaced by something else. They don’t care about facts. They don’t care about our Constitution. They don’t care about anything most of the citizens of this nation hold dear. They’ve demonstrated a single-minded hatred for our nation. They are determined to end it and us by any means necessary.

The attack on Kyle Rittenhouse, both on the night of August 25, 2020 and the subsequent attacks on him in both the court in Kenosha, Wisconsin and in the court of public opinion is an attack on all of us and our way of life. It is an attack on our right defend ourselves, on our right to free speech, on our right to be presumed innocent, on our right to a trial by jury, among others. This is the real threat and it threatens every citizen.

Most telling are those who blame “the system”. They blame “white supremacy”. They blame guns. They blame our right to self defense. They say they want “justice”. They do not. They want blood. They want revolution. They want communism. They said as much in a protest in nearby Chicago. (via The Daily Caller)

Footage captured a crowd of people marching the streets with a sign that called Rittenhouse a “white supremacist” and demanded to end the “fascist USA.” The crowd chanted in support of a communist revolution.

“The only solution is communist revolution,” the crowd is heard chanting.

“That’s right, we need communism. That’s what we need. We need that! We need that, sister, we need that very much,” a female demonstrator said.

This is the true significance of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. There are two types who are protesting this verdict: those who are ignorant of the facts and those who ignore them. I can understand those who are ignorant, who lack knowledge, can mistakenly protest something because they think they know the facts. They are moving forward in bad information. It is those who ignore the facts I find dangerous. They know better but because the facts do not fit their agenda, they plunge ahead anyway. To them, it is the agenda that is important, no matter what. Most dangerous of all are those whose agenda is a communist revolution.

1/6 Political Prisoners Update

I came across a couple of articles today. One referenced “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” by Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Hoping it might be a short story, I learned it is a novel. My search also turned up the video below. How long before we see Soviet style gulags on American soil? Or is this what is happening before our eyes in our nation’s capital? Even if it is not, these citizens are not being treated as well as prisoners of war per the Geneva Convention, much less as citizens under our Constitution.

Defense Attorney Compares Treatment of Jan. 6 Defendants to Soviet Russia: “Never Seen Such a Blatant Disregard for Inmates’ Rights”




It Is Time to End Lawlessness

How long will we, as citizens in this Constitutional Republic put up with the blatant lawlessness of our representatives and our employees? Enough is enough. Let’s start from the top – the three branches of our federal government. The Presidency, Congress and the Courts. I’ll deal with the courts later.

Right now, the current administration is rife with lawless behavior. It must stop and stop now. We citizens cannot stand for it. This behavior is unacceptable. What follows is a partial list of lawlessness.

Illegal Aliens and other contraband flowing across our borders. The facts are indisputable and this administration is fomenting this invasion. The President of the United States swore an oath to uphold our Constitution. He has blatantly refused to abide by his affirmation.

This administration is also the Department of Justice, federal law enforcement and the courts to apprehend and detain political prisoners. At present I am referring directly to those held due to their participation of the protests and subsequent events in Washington D. C. on January 6, 2021. Regardless of how you view the events of this day, the treatment of these citizens is abhorrent, inhumane and without excuse. These citizens are being denied their constitutional rights. Those responsible for said treatment need to be held accountable for their actions.

The Department of Justice declaring citizens “domestic terrorists” and implementing procedures to interfere with local law enforcement is completely beyond any authority granted by our Constitution and yet another act of lawlessness.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation executing unlawful search warrants on citizens exercising their First Amendment rights under the Constitution. In one instance alone, the FBI descended on the home of James O’Keefe of Project Veritas to ostensibly search for an allegedly stolen diary of the daughter of the current President of the United States. Parts of the diary was published by another site before the 2020 election. Mr. O’Keefe states he declined to publish the material and turned it over to local authorities. Everything about this search was unlawful.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has also been implicated in multiple illegal actions including the involvement in the alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Whitmer, obtaining illegal FISA warrants, along with their possible involvement in the events of January 6.

Additionally, President Biden has openly and outright refused to abide by Supreme Court decisions expressly prohibiting his administration from certain actions, including enforcing an unconstitutional ban on evictions and his refusal to enforce Title 42 Immigration laws.

Every member of Congress also swore an oath to uphold our Constitution. Considering the blatant disregard for U. S. Law, the Constitution and the very rights of our citizens, Congress has turned a blind eye to these disgraceful attacks on the rule of law in our nation. Every member of Congress who has either endorsed such actions or ignored them must be held accountable.

The above list simply highlights the atrocities of our representatives and our employees. Those we elect to political office are sent to serve their constituents. Those who are paid to carry out acts of Congress are paid for by us citizens and are thus our employees. All have a duty to abide by the law and the Constitution. Flaunting our nation’s laws including THE Law of the Land, our Constitution, is unacceptable and grounds for immediate dismissal.

As for The Supreme Court of the United States

The Supreme Court of the United States or SCOTUS is deemed the arbiter of The Law of the Land, our Constitution. While this is true, SCOTUS does not have the final say. We citizens have the final say. While I will not delve into this today, I’ll say this much: if, ultimately, SCOTUS renders an opinion of some constitutional absolute and we, the people, don’t like it, we have absolute authority to change things to our satisfaction. Thus WE THE PEOPLE have the ABSOLUTE FINAL SAY. Got that? Good.

In conclusion, our nation was created as a representative constitutional republic. As such we are a nation of self-governing citizens. We are NOT ruled by our government but rather WE RULE. This is OUR NATION. THE law of our land is our CONSTITUTION. As such I must insist those we’ve chosen to represent us and those who are employed by us honor and obey our laws.

One citizen’s opinion

A New Day Dawns Upon Our Republic

By the grace of God Almighty, I have been lifted from the despair of watching our nation crumble before our eyes as He grants us a reprieve.

This almost plays out like a Saturday matinee melodrama. The nation is tied to a log heading for the razor-sharp blade of a buzz saw. The whine of the saw fills our ears as we draw ever so close while the villain’s evil laugh rises above the drone. At the last second, our hero snatches the helpless waif from certain death and, once again, foils the villain’s evil plan. And just like in this exciting episode, the villain escapes so he may once again return with yet another dastardly plan.

Just like in the movies, the democrats have slunk off into a slimy hole where they are licking their wounds and planning their next attack. They aren’t going away boys and girls. The question is: where do we go from here?

Let’s start with an overview, shall we? Beginning with what actually happened on November 2, the citizens of Virginia spoke. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the fact that our voice was not the only one but it was the loudest. The pundits will wrangle around this event in an attempt to figure out exactly what we said. They will miss the point. It is not what we said. It is what we did that is most noteworthy.

We came out en mass to reclaim our birthright – our representative, constitutional republic. As one commentator, Sean Hannity pointed out, it is only one step towards the redemption of our nation. But it was a very important step. I entirely agree with what Hannity had to say about what the Republicans need to focus on moving forward:

Liberty, freedom, capitalism, a constitutionally limited government should be in the forefront of our message. He had more to say on this. I believe the message should be simplified even more. Every message should pass this litmus test: does it promote liberty?

For me, liberty and freedom are interchangeable. If someone could clearly distinguish between the two, I’d be happy to listen. As for capitalism, I like to think more in terms of free markets – as it promoting the freedom to produce, buy, sell and trade our goods, including our own labor, as we see fit. Above all, I dream of a truly limited government. In fact, I would support constitutional amendments to better close some “loopholes” that have allowed the dreadful expansion of government.

These loopholes include the language in the “general welfare” clause. To date the term general welfare seems to have taken on the meaning of “congress can doing any damn thing they want”. Whether or not this clause was intended to allow the federal government to transfer wealth at will, among other things, it needs to stop. It has transfigured the concept of a limited government to a policy of unlimited government power. The other loophole that concerns me most is the “treaty clause”. As written it has been suggested the President, along with two-thirds of the Senate may enter into a treaty with a foreign nation overruling our constitution. No. Simply no. Again, I care not if this was the actual intent of the founders or an oversight but this is unacceptable. Our constitution is THE law of the land and shall not be superseded by any entity other than God Almighty Himself. There are procedures in place to make changes in our constitution. Any modification can be accomplished with those.

How can we go about this? We have already begun. Now we need to take what we’ve learned in recent years and apply these principles diligently. For the most part, I am pointing to the Second Amendment Sanctuary movement and the “Mama Bear” movement. This last refers to what I feel may be the most significant factor in the 2021 Victory in Virginia. The most prominent battle in this election focused on vocal parents at local school boards. Loudoun County in Virginia was the center of this scrap. It galvanized the Commonwealth by drawing attention to the push to included Critical Race Theory in Virginia curriculums. A lessor related topic was the inclusion of pornographic materials, aimed at our children in our school libraries. As things heated up the National School Board Association worked with the Biden Administration and Merrick Garland’s DOJ to essentially declare parents who voiced disagreement domestic terrorists. Bad idea.

In an effort to desensationalize the domestic terrorist debacle, Garland insists his memo to the FBI focused on “threats of violence” or some such nonsense. Why nonsense? First thing, as I’ve stated before in another post, any “violent” acts ensuing from these school board meetings are a local, rather than federal matter. The DOJ and the FBI have no jurisdiction. Period. If they want to cry “terrorism”, fine. We can fix that by severely limiting how they can legally define terrorism. Better yet, we can require a special act of Congress in order to involve any federal agency in a suspected terrorist situation. Whatever the “intentions” of Garland’s DOJ memo, the effect was clear and the blowback was intense.

Both the 2A Sanctuary movement and the Mama Bear movement clearly demonstrate we citizens still have muscle to flex. WE the PEOPLE DO have the power. Our authority as self-governing citizens forming a representative government was confirmed. This is OUR nation. WE have the final say in how we are governed. What we need to do now is keep pushing. Indeed, we need to push harder. We need to step up and declare our will to our representatives and our employees in government. WE pay the bills. They are in their respective positions to serve US.

My vision for how to move forward is to gather together county by county, both in person and online. From there we can associate with other like-minded counties in our respective states and nationally. Like the 2A movement we can support and encourage each other and share ideas. We can band together to influence our state and federal representatives.

I am encouraged already. One week ago I thought I was seeing the end of our nation. Today I face a ray of hope, a ray so strong I cannot look straight at it for fear of going blind. It is a wonderful, warm ray. Let us thank God Almighty for this reprieve. We can demonstrate our thankfulness by seizing this moment and reclaiming our birthright – our representative constitutional republic.
