    American Mind ^ | 10/6/21 | Thomas D. Klingenstein
    This excerpt is from Claremont board chairman Thomas D. Klingenstein’s speech, “Winning the Cold Civil War.” In a traditional totalitarian regime, the government uses arbitrary violence to control every aspect of public and private life, all the way down to little league. In America, the government does not control everything. But today, through the power of the purse and the courts, the government influences a lot. And where the government leaves off, the cultural business complex takes over. Education, corporate media, entertainment, big business, especially big tech, are to varying degrees aligned with the Democratic Party, which is now controlled...

    We find ourselves in a Cold Civil War. But we have no real generals. A war without generals is no war at all. There is no liberty or death, only death, the death of our once cherished republic. Leading Republicans who should be our generals fight battles, sometimes with spirit, but they don't seem to see the war in its entirety, particularly its cultural aspects. This is a war not over the size of government or taxes, but over the American way of life. The war is between those who salute the flag, and those who take a knee. Those...

    Allow me to disabuse you of your naïve delusion that we still live in a country with a justice system and break it to you that no one is going to jail for what was done to Flynn, or for the unmasking business, or for the Russia hoax or, for that matter, for any of the corrupt Dem/foreigner collaborations exemplified by the payoffs received by stripperphile and Bolivian folk medicine enthusiast Hoover Biden. No one. Well, maybe Mike Flynn himself will. Since his judge is now making up the law as he goes along – in law school they taught...

    Townhall ^ | 16 May 20 | Beth Baumann
    Lindsey Graham, the owner of Glamour Salon in Salem, Oregon, has been harassed by numerous government agencies for reopening her salon despite Gov. Kate Brown's (D) stay-at-home order. During a Friday press conference, Graham said multiple government agencies, including child protective services, have investigated her for wanting to reopen her salon and make a living. "And, if you can possibly believe this, on May 7th, Child Protective Services showed up at my home," she said, taking a deep breath while holding back tears. "They questioned my husband and I. They questioned my child, without me present. They searched our...

    Earlier today on Facebook (where all good ideas go to die) I read three separate posts from friends telling people to “stay home, stay safe.” Every single one of them was dripping in self-righteousness and condescension. You must be an idiot if you’re clamoring to go eat in a restaurant or swim at the beach – that was the tone and continues to be the tone of quite literally every single person who is proudly and publicly toeing the “stay home, stay safe” (SHSS) line right now. I’m using “literally” literally. I’ve yet to see one SHSS post that isn’t...

    The Federalist ^ | May 14th 2020 | Stephen Meyers
    President Trump and 50 governors now face a critical choice. Since March 16, 33 million Americans have filed for unemployment, and more than 83,000 American deaths have been attributed to the COVID-19 virus. So what to do? How many more weeks, months, or even years should current sheltering-in-place orders continue? When can or should they be lifted? The administration’s virus taskforce has recommended only a gradual lifting of stay-at-home orders and has established criteria for full re-opening that could take months to satisfy in many states. Yet Trump also insisted that even though “some people [will] be affected badly. ....

    • There is so much good (and also bad) analytical work appearing every day that calls into question the conventional wisdom about both COVID-19 and the hard lockdown remedy that just about every country has adopted. There’s so much that I can’t keep up, and can’t decide from day to day which items to pass along to Power Line readers. Fortunately for us, the British journalist Toby Young has put together a pretty good one-stop-shopping site called Lockdown Sceptics. Worth a look each day. Other good recent reads on lockdown skepticism include Conor Friedersdorf in The Atlantic (“Take the Shutdown...

    LANCASTER - Is Lancaster County going to be in the yellow phase of the state’s coronavirus pandemic reopening plan, come Friday? Or is it going to be in red? That, dear readers, depends upon who you are listening to. The county’s two Republican county commissioners continued to assert Thursday that the county is moving to yellow based on trend lines in new coronavirus case counts, its hospital capabilities, and a concentrated focus on efforts like building up contact tracing capacity and improving infection control programs in nursing homes. To them, they have done what they can to get the outbreak...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 5/14/20 | Nicholas Rowan
    Elected leaders in California say the state will remain shut down for the next few months, but a growing number of religious leaders are disregarding that guidance, revealing the tenuous state of the governments’ ability to enforce orders on unwilling people. California Church United, an organization which represents about 3,000 churches, announced on Tuesday its plans to open churches on May 31, no matter what Newsom says. Pastors joining the movement offered their positions on how they feel the governor has sidelined churches. “We're an essential part of this whole journey, and we've been bypassed, kicked to the curb, and...

    Original content | 5/12/2020 | By Laz A. Mataz
    The old chestnut, that American presidential elections are won on the fullness of the people's wallets, has been proven over the centuries to be accurate. The economy often influences whether an incumbent president, seeking re-election, will prevail and gain a subsequent term. The global Covid-19 response is leading many to think that the world is facing a deep depression. The economy, being hobbled in a serious way, will be down quite a bit. That, muse pundits across the political spectrum, is likely to cause President Trump to fail in his bid to be re-elected. While in normal times, this may...

    Psychology, conflicting rules, misinformation and anxiety fueling bad behavior and violence, experts say As a culture war rages across the nation over whether to wear protective masks, closer to home the battle is spilling over into store aisles and shopping center parking lots with alarming frequency — and at times violent consequences. Los Angeles police this week announced the arrest of two brothers who allegedly assaulted store employees and a security guard who attempted to escort them from a Target in Van Nuys for refusing to wear masks. ...
  • Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down Democratic governor's pandemic lockdown order in first ruling of its kind

    The Wisconsin Supreme Court has struck down Governor Tony Evers' coronavirus stay-at-home order in the first ruling of its kind, saying that his administration overstepped its authority when it extended the mandate for another month without consulting legislators. The 4-3 ruling on Wednesday essentially reopens the state effective immediately, lifting caps on the size of gatherings, allowing people to travel as they please and allowing shuttered businesses to reopen, including bars and restaurants. Local governments can still impose their own health restrictions, however. Officials in Dane County, home to state capital Madison, issued a local order minutes after the ruling...

    Donald Trump has lead the world in placing the emphasis on getting the economy going in the pandemic situation. He channels the spirit of Republican America when he says that the country is not built to shut down. While the high death toll is not a good looking statistic, the reality is that any nation with a high death toll is probably way ahead in the race to get herd immunity. In the political context of Australia, the closest thing to Donald Trump’s priorities is the approach of the Prime Minister Scott Morrison. He has been extremely vocal in calling...

All three of these turncoats are now supporting Tom Wolf’s punishment of Franklin County and have agreed that both the Boro of Chambersburg and Franklin County must remain under lockdown until June 4th.

    Rush Limbaugh said these next four months are going to be a "veritable war" like we have not seen.... On the Tuesday broadcast of his nationally-syndicated radio program, Limbaugh said Democrats will (SNIP) blow up their own country's jobs to ensure a Trump loss in November. RUSH LIMBAUGH: I’ll tell you something else that’s starting to send red flags up. You probably have already noticed this. All these blue state governors that want to keep their states locked down, it’s purely political. But what are they depending on? They’re depending on the red states — the red states that are...

    ADW Set To Implement Amoralis Lamentia, To The Detriment Of Countless Souls I'm in the Archdiocese of Washington and didn't hear of the impending storm until I saw the news on Canon 212.  This webmaster in turn cited the Tablet and the Catholic Herald - both British websites.  I find it most peculiar that the news broke on foreign sites, not American.  But it's not the first time this has happened!  But I digress! The "pastoral plan" (there's that word "pastoral" again!) is on the archdiocesan site.  I'd suggest that we all download it for safe-keeping.  It's a 58-page tome, but...

    On the heels of NDAA, ObamaCare, Stimulus, Son of Stimulus, Patriot Act, takeover of auto, energy, media and movie industries, and the relentless implementation of Agenda 21... the Obama regime running our country into the ground has issued an updated Executive Order which suggests the probability of impending MARTIAL LAW. We are left to scratch our heads and ask……… Why now? The only possible answer is… America is in fact, right now, in the vicious throes of a Cold Civil War. Cold as in non-violent and Civil as in nationwide; an attempt to force a new government-controlled ideology upon an...

    "We're seeing the beginning of a peaceful — and I emphasize peaceful — revolt in America." Thus spoke Senator John McCain at a townhall meeting in Arizona this past week. Two days later — before his constituents in Chickasha, Oklahoma — Senator James Inhofe declared, "We're almost reaching a revolution in this country. People are not buying these concepts that are completely foreign to America." The centerpiece of both townhalls, as throughout the nation, was the socialized medicine schemes embodied in bills before Congress and backed to the hilt by the White House. One man at the McCain meeting shouted...

    It is a chilling question and one that has been troubling me for about two weeks. I read the “low grade civil war” phrase as a declarative statement from a commenter on a news story about the Congressional Town Hall meetings and it has been rattling in my brain ever since. I’ve been wanting to post about this question and today seemed like the right time since now I’m not the only one worried about this question. In today’s Washington Times, actor/activist Jon Voight makes this statement: “There’s a real question at stake now. Is President Obama creating a civil...
