What Now?

Post by Riddick » 01-12-2021 01:32 AM

Excerpted from Bruce Bawer at FrontPage Magazine:

I've been ranting for years about the perfidy of the left. At times I've been accused of exaggerating. On rare occasions I feared -- or hoped? -- that perhaps I was exaggerating. In fact I can now see that these people are worse than I ever imagined. Worse than most of us ever imagined.

Worse, even, than Donald Trump, with all his insight, imagined.

He went into office determined to clean up the swamp. He was tireless. But not tireless enough. No mere mortal could have been tireless enough. Trump had denounced the swamp in apocalyptic terms, but it proved to be even deeper and more extensive than he knew...

...There's no intrinsic magic about America that protects it from becoming Mao's China or Stalin's Russia. Only utopians believe in the perfectibility of man. People are people. And some of the people who are now, or are about to be, in power in the United States would, if accorded enough power, do far more to those of us who falter in loyalty than merely take away our social-media accounts.

Indeed, as scary as the situation may be right now, one thing's for certain: worse is on its way. The Democrats now control both houses of Congress and are about to be handed the executive branch. The totalitarian-minded elements in that party are on the ascent, backed up by Silicon Valley, the legacy media, and much of corporate America. And they're about to party like it's 1793. In Paris.

The sky's the limit. And therein lies our hope, long-term though it may well be. Without doubt, these people will overreach. Their lists will grow so long, their cancelations so widespread, that, as happened with the Reign of Terror, everyone who isn't clinically insane will finally realize that things have gone too far and will, in one way or another, put an end to the madness.

But how far will things have to go before that happens? How long will it take? And how many lives will be destroyed before it's over? These, alas, are the all too sobering questions that have yet to be answered.

In the meantime, those of us who care about liberty will simply have to do our best to keep enduring the daily tsunami of evil ideology, fake news, and contempt for decent people, and to continue hoping that the true and good will yet prevail.

WHAT WE WILL BE FACING

Canada is much further ahead of US in implimating Useless Carbon Taxes, With the new Regime taking over, we will no doubt catch up fast. Canada is also in total lock-down with curfews in place and heavy duty fines if the people don't bend to the Government will. Their inflation rate is climbing, heating and groceries, may end up , pick one, cause you can't afford both. It is winter there too, just incase you don't know. The Covid shut-downs have reaked havic with Canada, even more so than the US, they are much more vunerable, than we have been as Yet! Don't ever think that we will be the only country dissappearing or People having hard times The World is in "Reset". Perhaps it would be a good time to reach out, to those folks, and to encourage each other. A new perspective, can be a really good thing. I would like Fan to weigh in on this stuff.

We already know that Rag/ Kbot are so into themselves and Obsession with Trump, is no longer relevant. And Frankly, have become very boring, This perpetual "Groung Hog Day" is not a place I care to Live in, time for gathering together and looking once again to solutions, Not Hate and Revenge. I don't like it at all, especially when I allow myself to be drawn into it, not my most prized moments





Trudeaus Second Carbon Tax Means More Costs At Worst possible Time.

CALGARY, AB: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation slammed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for releasing regulations containing a second carbon tax known as the so-called clean fuel standard.

“Trudeau needs to reverse his plans to hammer Canadians with his second carbon tax,” said Franco Terrazzano, the CTF’s Alberta Director. “Hiking a carbon tax during the middle of an economic downturn is bad enough, but announcing a second carbon tax is a slap in the face to struggling families and businesses.”

There are so many things wrong with your personal assessment of a country you know nothing about that I cannot be bothered to straighten you out. You have more guts than brains.

So now you don't want to talk about Trump anymore? Then go find a nice gardening forum because I do and I will continue to bash the most dangerous man the world has ever seen since Hitler.

Wrong!

When I post facts re the U.S., I research them and cite my source. When I post my opinion anybody is free to disagree.

Your facts are wrong because you took several news articles and lumped them into one opinion, which is screwed up.

A question? Why are the Democraps bringing in more troops, than they have on most Military Bases? I mean "China Joe's" innauguration is stated by the Democraps to be a "Virtual Event" Nancy and Obami got somethun' planned? And speaking of Obami, I wonder when they will bring him out of the Shadows and present him as their true leader, after all he has Nations to destoy, his never got to finish what he started. Anifa and Blm where invited of course, no doubt with red hats.



Up to 25,000 National Guard in DC for Inauguration: US Army

The Defense Department authorized up to 25,000 service members to be deployed, which is an increase of 5,000 from numbers earlier this week.

A statement from the Army to news outlets on Friday said the increase would support the “federal law enforcement mission and security preparations” during the inauguration, and it would be led by the U.S. Secret Service.

“Our National Guard soldiers and airmen are set around the city to protect our nation’s Capital,” National Guard Bureau Chief Army Gen. Daniel Hokanson said in the statement.

All 50 states and D.C. will have National Guard members to support the event, ostensibly due to the breach at the U.S. Capitol building last week during the Jan. 6 Joint Session of Congress.
In a statement on Wednesday, President Donald Trump reiterated to Americans that they shouldn’t engage in violence.

“In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking, and NO vandalism of any kind,” Trump said. “That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You.”
There were rumors on social media that the National Guard was moving to implement a nationwide lockdown or quarantine, but the South Carolina National Guard, among others, said that this claim is false.

“The rumors that the South Carolina National Guard is supporting a statewide or nationwide lockdown or quarantine are not true,” the South Carolina National Guard post said. “Rumors like this can create confusion and anxiety in the organization and our communities.”

In D.C., the perimeter of a fence surrounding the Capitol was pushed out to encompass the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Roads and other access points were closed, and some businesses said they would shut down.

The National Park Service has closed the Washington Monument to tours and Mayor Muriel Bowser has asked visitors to avoid the city.

A question: on Jan 6th, Nancy had 2000 Capital Police at her Command, costing tax payers $Millions. They could have stopped the few out of a mere million, that got into the Capital. WHERE WHERE THEY? Manouvered and manipulated, for her Minions. Minions never look behind the curtain nor question of anything, they just bobbel there little heads and print every thing , the only thing they know, Pelosi/Obami propaganda. They live in a world of the One Sided Coin, and a Flat Earth. They have no idea that they are included in the program.

In the meantime Take Care of your Family, share with your neighbor, and let no Hate destroy your soul and when you go home, reap the rewards.

I guess they are skipping over "Socialism", "Communism" for total " TRUE totalitarianism/ fascism, tyranny."



Democrats Outsource Political Repression to Corporate Monopolies

Those rights that the government can’t take from you, Google, Amazon, and Facebook will.

The repression will be televised. It will go better with Coke, it will promise to clear up your bad breath and make your toilet shine. It will be in the cloud, it will be digitized and monetized.

It will have a trademark, a brand, and it will be outsourced to the private sector.

Democrats love public-private partnerships and they outsourced political repression to the private sector. The Constitution has inconvenient things to say about freedom of speech and so the Democrat government of elected and unelected officials outsourced the problem of censoring and suppressing speech to the handful of Big Tech monopolies of the internet.

That same old document written by old white dead men, not to mention centuries of jurisprudence and tradition, prevents the government from kicking down your door in the middle of the night for wrongthink. But nothing keeps corporations from firing you for wrongthink, for being related to someone who committed wrongthink, or for insufficient political correctness.

The public-private partnership between big government and big monopolies is based on Democrats and corporations doing the dirty work of repressing each other’s opponents.

Corporations can’t write regulations that suppress competition from upstart rivals, and so the government steps in and keeps the marketplace under the control of a few cartels. And the government can’t censor, deplatform, fire, bankrupt, and bar its political opponents from speaking, flying, and doing business. But the monopolies it’s been partnering with can and do.

This political Strangers on a Train arrangement goes much more swimmingly because both the government Guy and the corporate Bruno are eager to take care of each other’s dirty business

This is chilling, with Gates Obsession of getting rid of approx, 7 , Billion people and everybody needs food!?


Bill Gates Is America’s Largest Private Owner of Farmland

Bill Gates now owns more farmland than anyone else in the United States, as the tech tycoon has quietly purchased 242,000 acres of farmland in several states across the country.

Gates is now America’s largest private farmland owner, with hundreds of thousands of acres spanning across 19 U.S. states, according to the Land Report.

The tech billionaire owns 69,071 acres in Louisiana, 47,927 acres in Arkansas, and 20,588 acres in Nebraska.

Gates also owns land in Arizona (25,750 acres), Illinois (17,940), Mississippi (16,963), Washington (16,097), Florida (14,828), Idaho (9,233), Indiana (9,136), Ohio (8,915), California (4,509), Colorado (2,270), Michigan (2,167), Wisconsin (1,188), Wyoming (975), North Carolina (874), Iowa (552), and New Mexico (1). Gates’ farmland now totals 242,000 acres.

While Gates is still the top farmland owner in the U.S., not all of the property he owns is farmland. As the Land Report notes, 24,800 acres of the land is transitional, located on the western edge of Phoenix, the tenth-largest metropolitan area in the country, and the most populous city in Arizona.


This is not Gates’ first time dabbling in agriculture. In 2008, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced $306 million in grants to promote high-yield, sustainable agriculture among smallholder farmers in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, reports Forbes.

The report adds that while it’s not clear how Gates’ land is being utilized, the property could be used in a way that aligns with the foundation’s values, given that Cottonwood Ag Management — a subsidiary of Cascade Investment LLC, Gates’ personal investment vehicle — is a member of Leading Harvest, a nonprofit that promotes sustainable agriculture standards.

Gates may own a considerable chunk of America’s farmland, but he is not the largest landowner in the country. According to the Land Report’s list of 100 top American landowners, billionaire businessman John Malone owns 2.2 million acres of ranches and forests.

CNN founder Ted Turner is ranked number three with 2 million acres of ranch land, and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is ranked number 25 with 420,000 acres -— much of which is located in west Texas.

OCTOBER 1917

One of the First things done in The Russian Revolution by the Bolsheviks, Marxist, Lenin leadership, was to pull down and burn statues, buildings that represented anything to the Russian people including their homes, churches, heritages, history. Their Country , Russia, was to be spoken of No more, in 1921 the name Russia was banned and the USSR was born. Not all of the Murdered Czars opulant palaces where destroyed, Lenin and his rulers needed some nice places to live. They banned farmers from farming, and the Russian people almost starved to death, millions upon millions died.In the end they allowed some of the farmers , to do what they do best, grow some food, at least for the higher up party members, the people where pretty well left on their own with what little was left to be distrubuted in the "Food Lines". Never enough. Stalin came next and things really got bad.

It's like a totalitarian peanut butter cup: big business chocolate coating & big government creamy center. What's not to like? 2 great tastes in 1 leviathan! - Course, if oligarchies of any kind give you indigestion that's your tough luck -

But seriously, applauding big tech efforts to suppress free speech shows how far progressivists have regressed. Back in the day defending the 1st amendment & busting up business trusts were stocks-in-trade for them but now, not so much.

In his columnAssault On The Capitol Has Let Loose The Electronic Octopus” seeking to suss out the new standards for accceptible speech, historian Victor Davis Hanson considers the contradictions - Some excerpts:
…the Vicki Osterweil book “In Defense of Looting,” a justification for theft and property destruction, came out last summer amidst the antifa and Black Lives Matter unrest. The author was even featured on National Public Radio in a largely sympathetic interview.

Is Madonna banned from social media? Shortly after the 2017 inauguration, she voiced a desire to blow up the White House with the Trump family in it.

Is AK-47-toting rapper Raz Simone banned from social media? He took over a swath of downtown Seattle last June and declared it an autonomous zone. For weeks, his armed guards reigned supreme without worry of police. There were at least four shootings and two deaths in or around Simone’s kingdom. He was neither prosecuted nor deplatformed from social media. The lyrics of his song “Shoot at Everyone” are full of allusions to violence, racial slurs and stereotypes. The song is posted on YouTube, and Simone still enjoys a large social media presence.

So, why did Big Tech, the media, the publishing industry, a host of corporations and a growing number of campuses double down on censoring some free speech? Why now blacklist, censor and cancel thousands of people?…

Today…progressive politicians, Wall Street, the media, academia, Hollywood and professional sports are all on the side of the mega-rich tech cartels. Partnering with Big Tech is both politically useful and financially lucrative.

So the values of the 19th-century rail and oil monopolies are back. But now they are married to the 20th-century leftist totalitarianism of George Orwell’s “1984.” And they are further powered by the 21st-century instant reach of the internet.

This time around there will be no progressive trustbusters or muckrakers. They are in league with, or bought off by, the new electronic octopus. And its tentacles are strangling the thoughts and speech of an increasingly unfree America.

Woke Stasi Informants At Work In WI

Post by Riddick » 01-21-2021 05:04 PM

Compiled from Wisconsin Spotlight & Empower Wisconsin reports -

A longtime community member and local volunteer, 73-year-old Vietnam War vet Roy Stern was working at his Hustisford home Saturday when he was approached by three Dodge County Sheriff’s Department deputies.

He said he got the sense he was being questioned as some kind of suspected domestic terrorist or insurrectionist, descriptors used by liberal politicians and news outlets in the wake of the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.

It appears he was, according a copy of the incident report obtained by Empower Wisconsin under the state’s Open Records law.

Lt. Robbie Weinfurter on Saturday afternoon was informed by an anonymous call that "Stern was trying to encrypt his phone and was planning on attending the Presidential Inauguration at the Wisconsin State Capitol with two other people."

"The caller felt this was very disturbing and thought Elroy Stern was wanting to cause problems," the lieutenant reported. He noted the information was provided to the anonymous caller by another anonymous source.

But the caller could not provide specifics. So what was so disturbing? The informant said Stern was at the spring protests against overreaching government health orders. Of course, so were thousands of other conservatives and opponents of the restrictions. Stern also was "open carrying a sidearm at that time." Wisconsin is an open carry state. But Stern told Empower Wisconsin he was not carrying a sidearm at the rally.

"The caller also was not aware of Elroy Stern getting involved with anything illegal during his time in Madison in the spring," Weinfurter wrote in his report.

The informant named two other people Stern "was trying to communicate with" — his cousin and a friend from the West Bend area.

That was all deputies had to go on.

Yet Stern was subject to questioning on his property in the presence of three sheriff’s deputies, questions that touched the core of the man’s integrity, patriotism and his beliefs about the America he fought for so many years ago.

Stern said he was openly cooperative with the authorities, but asked if they meant to arrest him. They said they were just checking out the anonymous accusations.

Scarier still, Stern said, was that the officers brought up his friend and his cousin, whether they planned anything "violent." He said he didn’t believe they had any such plans. One, he said, is a pretty "apolitical" person, well known and respected in his community.

The lieutenant noted in the report that he passed along "the information I had" on the two men to the Washington County Sheriff’s Department and the West Bend Police Department for "possible follow up."

The officers left after a few more questions. Stern said the department told him later that they determined he was not a threat and they would not be continuing their investigation.

Stern told Empower Wisconsin that the officers were very professional, and that they were just doing their jobs. But, "It’s very disconcerting," he said.

In the days following the Capitol riots, a growing chorus of powerful liberals is painting their political opponents with a broad brush, marking anyone who disagrees with the election results — or even the policy ideas of Joe Biden and his liberal allies — as an enemy of democracy.

It’s all left Stern with an unsettling feeling. "This is exactly what happened in Nazi Germany, how the Nazis came to power," Stern said. "They came to power via democratic ways, elections. Once they had that power they took it and ran."

He had turned out for demonstrations in recent weeks in Madison, protests from people concerned about what they see as widespread election law violations.

"There was no rioting. It was a peaceful assembly," Stern said. "That’s the way things have got to be done, in a civil manner."

"People are concerned about the direction the country is going. We have our rightwing viewpoints, but the last time I checked that was not a crime," he added.
