  • “Because Government Is For All The People”

    01/21/2021 7:32:06 PM PST · by MagillaX · 52 replies
    About Us It should be apparent that after decades of trying to win from within the GOP, conservatives are just beating their heads against a wall which hasn’t budged. Every now and then, we’ve been treated to the appearance of budging, but they have always reverted to form shortly thereafter. Without serious changes to rules within the GOP and within the houses of congress, removing speakers like Paul Ryan or majority leaders like McConnell won’t result in the changes we need to right the nation’s course. As we’ve seen, you lose one guy who won’t represent the electorate and you...

    Aletho News ^ | 1/19/2021 | Jon Rappoport
    It had to happen. People who call themselves WRITERS are signing a letter pressuring publishers to ban Trump, and anyone who has worked for him: Do not publish a Trump memoir. Stay away from him. The letter was penned by Barry Lyga. Who? LA Times, January 15 [1]: “More than 250 authors, editors, agents, professors and others in the American literary community signed an open letter this week opposing any publisher that signs book deals with President Donald Trump or members of his administration.” “Former DC Comics president Paul Levitz, journalist Sarah Weinman and ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ author Celeste Ng...

    The Epoch Times ^ | January 16, 2021 | GARY DU AND JAN JEKIELEK
    Dr. James Lindsay, an American-born author and political commentator, called the “woke” ideology and movement embraced by Black Lives Matter organizations and other left-wing activists “Leninism 4.0.” “Now we have the attempt to apply Leninism to the American context, using corporations as part of the toolset, for example. And so we call this movement the ‘woke’ movement. We talked about woke capital with all the corporations … the woke movement is Leninism 4.0,” Lindsay told Jan Jekielek, host of The Epoch Times’ American Thoughts Leaders program on Jan. 13. Lindsay explained that the first 3 versions or flavors of Leninism...

    Who and what we are is a huge determinant of what we can be. A Biden presidency born in stripping his predecessor of the basic right to speak cannot end well. Can Biden find a way to be magnanimous to Donald Trump?

    We are frighteningly headed to playing out a real life scenario of the classic Star Trek episode when Kirk and company fall into the middle of a war between the Yangs and the Coms. It is uncanny how today's events are mirroring the takeover of the United States by communist infiltration. We conservatives who actually study history know full well what the communist and Nazi regimes did to acquire power. It all starts with the media and control over the information medium. I will never forget the only thing I remember from my "Introduction to Mass Media" class in college....

    We are at at a crossroad. Social media has crossed the line from being a frivolity to being an utility, like electricity or telephone. And it needs to be regulated as such. Not censoring. All communications providers need to be regulated and expected to provide the platforms for communications and the tools that users can use to block unwanted content in the same way telephone companies provide blocking tool for unwanted calls. Our electric company does not censor your electricity use by judging the value of its use. This utility regulation would apply to fb, twit, amazon, Google, UTUBE, SNAPCHAT,...

    Watching mealy-mouthed, frothy-lipped, knuckle-dragging d*ckheads cheer the silencing of thousands and thousands of conservatives on social media by the ‘West Coast Big Tech’ companies has been disheartening. Totally expected but still, you’d think by now they’d have learned that things always swing back the other way. Not to mention the same big tech authoritarians who took down Parler may someday come for them. Elon Musk spelled it out in one short but sweet tweet. Elon Musk @elonmusk "A lot of people are going to be super unhappy with West Coast high tech as the de facto arbiter of free speech"...

    So what is to be done? Even pro-free speech alternative social media outlets are under attack from the Big Tech/government Leviathan. There are no easy solutions. But we must think back to the dissidents in the era of Soviet tyranny. They had no Internet. They had no social media. They had no ability to communicate with thousands and millions of like-minded, freedom lovers. Yet they used incredible creativity in the face of incredible adversity to continue pushing their ideas. Because no army – not even Big Tech partnered with Big Government - can stop an idea whose time has come....

    Tech mogul Elon Musk -- known as widely for slinging cars into the sun's orbit as he is for advocating against COVID-19 safety measures -- took to Twitter Thursday to slam Facebook over its latest privacy policy updates for its supposedly secure encrypted messaging app WhatsApp. Musk instead recommended users choose encrypted messaging app Signal. This isn't the first time Musk has publicly sparred with Facebook over privacy concerns. In 2018, he not only had his own personal Facebook page removed, but those of his companies Tesla and SpaceX. His take on the long-fought battle between Signal and WhatsApp isn't...

    Reagan: Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you and good evening. The sponsor has been identified, but unlike most television programs, the performer hasn't been provided with a script. As a matter of fact, I have been permitted to choose my own words and discuss my own ideas regarding the choice that we face in the next few weeks. I have spent most of my life as a Democrat. I recently have seen fit to follow another course. I believe that the issues confronting us cross party lines. Now, one side in this campaign has been telling us that...

    If we fight back using the same tactics as the leftists or support martial law, then we ultimately erase the civil liberties protected within the Bill of Rights. Those rights will NEVER return (don’t believe the promises for a second) and we become history’s biggest hypocrites and a cautionary tale of the “dangers of nationalism” told to children generations from now, much like the Nazis. There is, however, another option, and it’s not diplomacy. The establishment likes to make people think there are only ever two choices during any crisis, and both choices involve giving up more freedom or giving...
  • The worst days for America seem to be arriving soon. What do we do?

    We will soon live in an America where our government, our "news" media and the technology that millions of Americans rely on to communicate will be under the control of a single political party and viewpoint: The Left. The people on the Left, from Nancy Pelosi to Jack Dorsey, hold us in contempt. Many of them literally hate us. The hate our nation. Many of them would be more than happy to throw the Constitution into a trash can. We have very little, if anything, in common with these people. They have been attacking the President of the United States...

    The Question: What is the US Government's key purpose? The Answer: To make sure we're left alone. Now, it’s not only to leave us alone... that's just part of it. The Bill of Rights is a list of specific ways that the government itself is specifically directed to leave us alone. But it's much more than that. The Constitution – first in the world of its kind - was written to design a government that is only big enough - not too big, just big enough - to be able to help us, the people, to be left alone. Not...

    There is a simple rule that one needs to understand when examining the plight of conservatives and liberty advocates in history, and it is this: Conservatives are not allowed to take action to stop the abuses against them. Whenever they do, they are summarily chastised as villains, or their accomplishments are twisted into something that is “shameful”. They are only meant to sit idle like punching bags waiting around for others to take out their frustrations on them.
  • Tucker Carlson Warns Capitol Hill Protests Will Be Used to Strip Americans of Their Basic Rights

    Wednesday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson delivered a monologue about the protests seen at the U.S. Capitol that left four dead and many more injured. After emphasizing how “horrified” he was by the violence, Carlson said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that as long as the people feel that “their democracy is fraudulent” and are silenced while speaking out about it, the people will act out as seen on Wednesday and in history. He warned that the chaos at the Capitol could be used by the nation’s leaders to strip Americans of their basic rights. Partial transcript as follows: As long...

    What happened in the Capitol building yesterday, American time, was terrible but inevitable. Any organisation which does something as stupid as ban words like mother is simply not fit to govern. I see this and say this as a man who was a midwife for 32 years. I pray for peace and understanding and freedoms which good people must fight for in good ways whenever freedom is under attack.

    How did this happen.. Years of neglect and years of letting the left do whatever they wanted. Years of Churches going in a wrong direction. Years of losing the foundation we stood on and years of being spoiled with things and more things. You are not all going to agree with this, but look where we are doing it your way...It's not working.. it's not working at all. I can go way back and I remember more than most.. It's become a "thing" to not give older folks any credit.. but the wisdom you seek is earned by living it!...

    Donald Trump = William Wallace. The tragic hero who fought for his 14th century "Deplorables" against overwhelming odds vs an arrogant ruling class! Trump faced with great courage and determination the cesspool that is the kingdom DeeCee. The cesspool of DeeCee now wants to do to Trump the 21st Century equivalent to what the King of England did to William Wallace. They demand a public execution with much torture and pain! We hear such calls all over Left media and their minions! Representative Hank Johnson D-Georgia said yesterday in a radio interview... "Trump must be made an example of, so...
  • (A Personal Post) Remembering Roman poet Vergil and how Destructive Leftist Crap makes a new Social Contract essential in places like Australia.

    I studied Latin for ten years at high school and then Melbourne University in an era when the classics mattered more than now. Vergil was one of my personal favourites. I still love the way his ancient words are woven together. That time of Latin poetry was very different to what the political rubbish heap onto my love of language now. In my modern life, under the misandry of the Socialist Left police state of Victoria in Southeast Australia, actions like lobbying a politician for WW2 commemoration, looking at a window and asking a young woman to obey the laws...

    While sitting in the Delta lounge in the Atlanta airport waiting for my flight back to Washington, a white gentleman approached me and struck up a conversation. Politics was on his mind, and seeing me, a black woman, he was sure that he had found a kindred spirit to share his hopes that Democrats will prevail in both U.S. Senate runoff races in Georgia. I politely straightened him out, leaving him a bit in shock that he had incorrectly assumed that seeing the outside of me was sufficient information to know what is going on inside of me. Several months...
