I can believe it only because it’s so insane

See the additional details here: Biden says small business will receive no aid unless they’re owned by minorities, women.

Of course, women are already in a majority and after four years of Biden/Harris white men will be in a minority too. I bet that won’t count.

Of course, white male owned large business – say Facebook, Twitter and Amazon – will do really well for themselves.

“That’s the definition of fascism”

Fascism was socialism restricted to the confines of a single national state, compared with classical Marxism which was supposed to be international, as in “workers of the world unite” etc. This is from Instapundit.

THEY’RE POWERFUL. THEY’RE NOT NECESSARILY SMART, AND THEY’RE CERTAINLY NOT WISE:

Those who think they like this new censorship really need to step back and take the long view. Conspiracy theories about taking down Donald Trump will go on for 100 years. All of these efforts at suppression will be woven and rewoven into these theories. Driving the theories off the front pages of social media will make them wilder and crazier, and we won’t be able to see them or argue with them. How many millions of serious devotees does Trump have? What will they do now? Why is depriving them of their Twitter connection a wholesome curative?

When you have the leaders of business implementing the political agenda of a political party against its opposition, that’s the definition of fascism.

The corporate state as it is otherwise known. Not that it will do you much good to know the kind of political entity the United States has become, but it is nevertheless useful to know.

“Tim Blair is a Newscorp columnist”

That’s what comes at the end of this article by Tim Blair today which is titled: “The riot they did notice”. He begins:

WE’RE all agreed then. Last week’s riot in Washington was a disgrace and police should round up and charge everybody who participated in this shocking affront to democracy. On this, conservatives and leftists speak as one. It’s just that conservatives have had a little more practice. We’ve been condemning political violence for years. Our friends on the left, however, are new to this game. They ignored or downplayed riots across the US throughout last year, sometimes hilariously….

Last week’s deadly assault on the Capitol Building was different to riots in Portland, Seattle, Kenosha, Minneapolis and elsewhere, so people keep claiming, because it was incited by Trump. You’ll have noticed, though, that claims of incitement are never supported by any actual quotes….

And they acted contrary to Trump’s words: “I know everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol Building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” Presumably his critics feel Trump incited events by rejecting the 2020 election’s legitimacy. You know, exactly as his critics have done for the past four years.

All this is very unusual for Newscorp. Apparently it is the wife of one of Murdoch’s sons who is the rabid lefty who has shifted the whole of the Newscorp orientation and Fox News especially. Such is the way of the modern world.

Code breakers

I grew up on Morse Code which I learned from my Dad who had been in the 2nd Divisional Signals during World War II. But it’s not a joke since the effort to shut down communications from the President is relentless. Ultimately without a feedback mechanism in the form of public discourse and debate, a free society cannot function.

Capitol lies

Start with this: US Capitol riot: Father says son’s arrest isn’t what it seems, he was anti-Trump.

But Robert Grimes, 54, of Cadillac says his son is not a supporter of President Donald Trump and should not be associated with those Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol building. His son keeps an eye on groups such as the Proud Boys and was there to protest the Trump faction, he said.

And then there’s this: DC Mayor Told Federal Law Enforcement To Stand Down Day Before Violent US Capitol Riot.

Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser told federal law enforcement to stand down just one day before a mob of Trump supporters breached the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, smashing windows, entering the chambers, and forcing lawmakers and congressional staff inside into lockdown.

“To be clear, the District of Columbia is not requesting other federal law enforcement personnel and discourages any additional deployment without immediate notification to, and consultation with, MPD if such plans are underway,” Bowser wrote in a letter to acting U.S. Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller, and Secretary of the Army Ryan D. McCarthy.

Also discussed here: US Capitol Police opened the fire doors and let hundreds of Activists inside the US Capitol.

And unusually I cannot copy the tweet you find at the link so you will have to go there yourself. Please do go to the link since the orderliness of the “protestors” is the most astonishing aspect.

But possibly most interesting of all was this: Rasmussen: Trump’s Approval Rating Rises After DC Protests. Virtually no one on the PDT side of the fence is particularly angry about the reaction of those who are actually on his side, which is not necessarily made up of the entire contingent of those who entered the Capitol.

The Rasmussen poll, one of the most accurate polls of the 2020 election, finds President Trump’s approval is actually rising after Wednesday‘s protests. As Democrats move to impeachment and some establishment  Republicans call for the 25th Amendment to remove Trump, the poll finds 48% approve of the President’s job performance.

Lots of media and the Deep State establishment sounding these supposed alarms, but if anyone has broken the democratic compact, they are the ones who have done it.

Sarah Hoyt on a roll

All the posts below are from Sarah Hoyt at Instapundit today, my new favourite blogger, along with Ace of Spades and Small Dead Animals. Take note of the first one especially.

SOMETHING EVERYONE MEALY-MOUTHING WHAT THE LEFT WANTS THEM TO SAY BECAUSE THEY THINK SOMEHOW THAT’S THE OVERTON WINDOW IS SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO:  Rasmussen: Trump’s Approval Rating Rises After DC Protests. Remember, folks, in the face of unprecedented demonization of Trump from all official channels, Americans hunched their shoulders and voted for him in such amazing numbers that the Democrats had to extend their already amazing fraud operation to be highly visible and in your face.  Think about it. I know the Maoists think we’re Chinese peasants. But non-Maoists should maybe consider Americans are something else?  You ain’t seen nothing like us yet!

SO, IT TURNS OUT IT WAS A SETUP: To quote someone, I’ve seen more unruly “mobs” of third graders. And, btw, all the stuff about cleaning feces and urine from the capitol? They should ask the congress critters to stop using the capitol as a bathroom, then, because you know what? there were so many videos and none of that. Stop the gaslighting, oh, New-Maoist-Left. We ain’t buying it, and you’re just going to get us riled up.

WELL, OF COURSE.  ANTIFA, NO PROBLEM. BUT PEOPLE PROTESTING LEFTISTS? IT CAN’T BE ALLOWED:  Gov. Inslee calls up National Guard to protect state Capitol. It’s almost like the peons think there’s a right to protest the left when it seizes power! How uncouth! Evil rioters! Racistsexisthomophobes! Bad Thinkers! To the Gullag!

ARE WE ABSOLUTELY SURE THIS ISN’T BEING RUN REMOTELY FROM CHINA? BECAUSE THEY SEEM TO THINK THAT THEY’RE DEALING WITH CHINESE PEASANTS: FBI Agents Raid Homes, Offices of Republican Tennessee Lawmakers.

AS I SAID. MAOISTS DEALING WITH CHINESE PEASANTS:  Conservative #WalkAway Facebook page removed along with hundreds of thousands of videos and followers. At this rate they’re liable to make us angry. They won’t like us when we’re angry.
`

YEAH:  Palm Thursday. 

GOOD FOR YOU, MR. CRUZ!  Sen. Cruz Says Electoral Objections Did Not Incite Riot. Perhaps you can extend your truth telling a bit and tell them there wasn’t a riot? Live not by lies.

WELL, WE’RE SCARED, BUT WE AIN’T SHAKING:  Night Terrors.

America’s Reichstag Fire

I saw that as a comment on some post somewhere referring to the “riot” at the Capitol in Washington, but it is exactly right. Alas, with ignorance so pervasive, hardly anyone will understand what is meant. Here is the Wikepedia entry to help you out: Reichstag Fire. There is no end of how much capital the American media and the far left (I know, the same thing) will make of it, but they will do their best. It really is amazing how politically stupid people are.

We are rushing into a Fascist America which will most assuredly be implemented during the next twelve months in the same way that the Reichstag fire allowed Hitler to consolidate power in the 1930s. In place of concentration camps or gulags will be the pervasive application of cancel culture, which is much better since it will cost much less to put in place.

And as interesting was this in The Age today: Beijing draws comparison between Capitol riots and Hong Kong protests. I could not have put it better myself. This is actually quite zany in its own way.

The Chinese government has joined the chorus of countries accusing the US of double standards, by comparing the storming of the US Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump and last year’s often-violent pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, but noting that no one had died when demonstrators took over the legislature of the China-ruled city.

Clips of the chaotic scenes from Washington have aired repeatedly on Chinese state television.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a daily briefing that while events in Hong Kong in 2019, when the city’s legislature was stormed, were more “severe” than those in Washington, “not one demonstrator died”.

It’s the comparison in itself I find so appealing. The blending of the Democrats and the Communist Party of China is so clever that it has to have taken a genius to see it. Moreover, the point blank murder of a protestor did not occur in Hong Kong so draw your own comparisons is the point of the story from the Chinese perspective, filtered through Reuters which might as well have been Xinhua news.

Being nice doesn’t cut it with totalitarians

Nice article about how naive the people on the conservative side of politics are, by Sarah Hoyt: ATTENTION PLEASE! And you really should pay attention because she puts her finger right on the issue.

Recently, a lot of you who told me I was insane when I said that Winnie the flu was all theater and though it existed and was a flu and would probably take “severe flu, no vaccine numbers” it was and is stupid to lock the sick and the healthy in, destroy the economy and make everyone wear a mask, have come back and ask how I knew. And apologized.

Well, attention in the isles, my friends on the right: you are falling for the same king of bullshit diversion. You are being spun like a top. And you’re falling for it and falling in line.

I blame you and I don’t. You didn’t grow up with the constant-pretend-reality of communist psi-ops, and you haven’t learned to smell it.

Over and over again, you condemn Trump and the “rioters.”

NO ONE RIOTED. Not compared to this summer. THERE WERE NO RIOTS. And the protesters were treated with an iron fist and live ammo, btw.

There are videos. I don’t know which ones are still live. They keep removing them. There was no riot. There was a protest. You know, those things that are vital for public health?

Did they go into the Capitol? Yes they did. You know what? It’s a public building. WE PAY FOR THE F*CKING CAPITOL’S UPKEEP.

But, but but…. the congress critters ran. They were scared!

Were they now? WHY? No, seriously, why were they scared, if the people they work for want to watch the deliberations. They’re in our presence all the time. You know the worst thing we do — or used to do — we called them traitors. That was it.

But they vandalized Nancy Pelosi’s office! Oh, my stars and garters? Evil people. Was that before or after she vandalized our constitution and sank a knife in the heart of the republic? Is the evil bitch dangling from a lamppost this morning? No? They were civilized beyond all hope.

But Sarah, you’ll say, this will give them the excuse to avenge themselves on us.

Dear idiots, you’re like the wife with her arm in a sling and both eyes blackened telling her husband “Please don’t say anything to Joe. He’ll be mad.”

In other words, are you out of your ever loving little minds? These people STOLE two elections — it’s now absolutely obvious the nominal right is fine with this. They hope for crumbs from their masters’ tables. The left is more likely to kill them, but never mind — in a row, in full view, and refused to let us have our day in court to show the evidence. Because the American people are now peons with NO STANDING and can be disenfranchised with no punishment. But you’re afraid that largely (truly) peaceful protesters “made them mad?”

Withdrawing the objection to the fraudulent votes due to the riot? That only makes sense in the mind of an abuser. “I stole your thing, and I was going to maybe give it back, but you cried, so now you don’t get it back.” Are you all actually out of your ever loving minds to blame the protesters and Trump for this?

These people are saying “You peasants dared to show up in our presence. We’re now going to take away even the illusion of franchise.” And…. you’re cool with this? It’s the protesters fault?

Get up off the floor. Wipe the blood from your lip. KNOW WHO YOUR ABUSER IS.

And BTW it’s not Trump. Trump thought maybe if congress saw how ad people were, they would play straight. I said before that’s all the protest was about, and that’s all it was. He told people to go home when it was obvious it had failed.

And I hope to G-d someone with access to him reads this and tells him it’s time. Take the family NOW and go to an undisclosed location. As much as it hurts me to say this, because I want him to continue harassing the left, he has to realize this is no longer the sweet land of liberty. This is now a tyrannical third world shithole. Or will be within months from the way our occupiers are behaving. They will find a way to kill him and his whole family, or kill him and turn his family against him. Go Mr. President. G-d bless. You’ve done all that you could. If the so called right in this country will pearl clutch and blame even people who engage in a very mild protest, they deserve what’s to come.

He now promises an orderly transition. I will tell all of you that DEAD is the most orderly of all states. And right now the Republic is effectively dead. There might be a hope for CPR, but I’m not sure there’s the will to apply it. Pence has joined the rats fleeing to the lefty rotten ship. because he hopes that will save his life. Spoiler, it won’t. The left will kill all the right who turns their coat. Because they can’t trust them. Good. They deserve it. I shall eat popcorn.

Do we ever get the republic back? I don’t know. I think the most likely thing is that we fall apart into separate states while around us the world falls into chaos, famine and misery. We’ve been feeding the world for a century. The world had better look to itself now.

What do those of us who’ve sworn an oath to the constitution do? I don’t know. Most are still busily doing a Peter in Pontius Pilates Yard “I was never with him.”

Oh, and there’s talks of rounding up Trump supporters. Of denying them flights and hotels and the ability to engage in commerce.

I suppose that’s the “protesters” fault too? Except that that, like the paper to withdraw objections because of the “protest” were already written. They would have found an excuse.

I don’t want war. But I liked having a homeland. To everyone who, like me, came here as the last place of refuge: I’m sorry. I don’t even know what to tell you. We need to fight this, but even if we do, unless the natural-born citizens see what they’re losing, it’s unlikely we’ll ever get our country back.

This morning, in DC, the police are beating down what remains of protesters. A young woman was murdered in cold blood yesterday.

And our side is pearl clutching and tut tuting, and hoping the abuser won’t get mad. Oh, and talking about 2022, because seeing two elections frauded RIGHT BEFORE THEIR EYES and courts refusing to let anyone see evidence of it is not enough. They need to be stomped on some more before they believe they’ve lost the franchise.

Me? I’ve seen what happens when your votes don’t matter. Elections will continue as a form, possibly for fifty years, if we let this bullshit go on that long. Your next president after Commie laWhorish is Michelle Obama, because the ignorant bitch hasn’t shit on us enough. She felt stupid and inferior at Harvard, and by gum, she’s going to make you grovel to pay for your sins.

But your real masters are now Winnie the Pooh and his merry band of fascists. And we know what they do and how.

I can’t get the order, but we’re about to see: social credit; the banning of conservatives from the internet; branding us as terrorists, just as they’re doing to innocent protesters; show trials; people disappearing; our money confiscated; our houses confiscated; more lock downs, to prevent revolt; more masks to promote alienation; more lies.

When people die in the famine to come, it will be Covid-19 and Trump’s fault and you’ll be required to repeat it publicly.

It wont’ last. These commies are industrial-level STUPID. It won’t last. I give them ten years, maybe, before most of the country is starving, and they have no clue what to do about it. And then it all falls apart, because unlike Venezuelans, we have no one to help and no place to run to.

Or, you know, we can stop pearl clutching and say “Hell no.” and “Molon labe” and stop repeating the lies the left wants written into history.

To lefty idiots: yes, the election was stolen. Because if it had NOT been, the left would have joined the right in demanding the courts take the case, and that it be shown to all as an honest election. Also, to lefty idiots, what the protesters — and all of us at home — want? ANOTHER ELECTION with minimum accountability. I mean, we can’t even clean the roles. There wouldn’t be enough time. We just wanted to make sure each person voted only once, and the votes were counted with full supervision.

Instead, you’re handing off the country to China, via their bought and paid for man, Biden. Yes, I know you heard good things about China. You’ll find out, along with the craven right that the leftist press makes Pravda seem honest. Enjoy the ride.

As for you and me, my friends. We’re going to eat the bread that the devil baked. Save what you can from the ruin. It won’t be much. And don’t let them into your head. NEVER let them into your head. They’re invaders. They’re oppressors. They’re thieves. Treat them as what they are. Do not comply unless you have to, and then engage in malicious compliance.

Keep the republic in your heart. Maybe there are enough of us left that it will rise again. But in the meantime, this is going to hurt and hurt badly. And the longer the restoration of law takes, the higher the butcher’s bill.

Most of you have no idea how bad it will get. Imagine your worst nightmares. Then double them. Prepare for that as best you can. You won’t be able to do much. If you’re lucky they’ll leave you your conscience.

Your country was invaded (even if the invaders were born here, their masters aren’t) and is about to be raped. The least you can do is not cooperate.

Political tactics and the non-riot in Washington

Was the non-riot on the Capitol staged by Antifa? Sounds plausible. We on the right are some of the stupidest political tacticians found anywhere. Will start with a post from Instapundit with the ones to follow picked up at Lucianne.com.

HMM: Worrisome Signs the Capitol Breach was Planned to Discredit Trump Supporters: An Eyewitness Account. Related: Actions by Police Before Trump Supporters Attacked Capitol Backfired Spectacularly: Federal and local law enforcement say they underestimated threat posed to Congress, despite evidence of plans online. “Policing tactics in the U.S. have changed in the seven months since George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police, sparking nationwide protests last year. In Portland, Ore., months of nightly demonstrations escalated after President Trump sent in federal agents to protect a federal courthouse. In a letter to federal officials on Monday, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser urged federal law enforcement to maintain a light footprint for Wednesday’s protests, seeking to avoid the type of show of force that had inflamed tense situations in the city last year.” To be fair to law enforcement here, Trump protests have traditionally been very orderly and well-behaved.

January 6, 2020, a Day that Will Live in Political Infamy American Thinker, by Steve McCann – Original Article – I attended the “Million MAGA March” on January 6, along with the Mainstreet Patriots chapter of the Eastern Shore of Maryland. (Snip) As we were able to position ourselves within 75 yards of the entrance [to the Capitol], we noticed that among a large cadre of what appeared to be young Trump supporters there were many frankly stereotypical Antifa-looking militants waving Trump flags on the steps attempting to get to the doors as the useless barriers of portable and plastic fencing had been easily breached. These militants were at the entrance area before Trump’s speech at the Ellipse (two miles away) was finished.

Left’s Hypocrisy On Full Display After D.C. ‘Insurrection’Issues & Insights, by The Editorial Board Original Article The angry election fraud protest that led to the temporary takeover of the U.S. Capitol Wednesday perfectly illuminates the hypocrisy of the Democratic far left when it comes to political violence. Republican officials and rank-and-file GOP conservatives immediately and forcefully condemned the pro-Trump rioters. Nothing unusual about that: During this riot-torn year, Republicans have consistently, loudly and frequently denounced violence, no matter who did it. What about the Democrats and their extreme-left supporters? Tragically, for them, violence is always acceptable when it’s in service to their cause. That’s especially true since the riots and mass protests began in late May

Here Comes the Crackdown Red State, by Nick Arama Original Article After the Capitol protest/riot occurred, I said to my colleagues the folks on the left will use it to go after President Donald Trump, Republicans and Trump supporters in general. They will use it to justify a crack down on social media and other arenas. That’s already coming to pass and it only happened yesterday. They’re calling to ban anyone who went into the building from plane travel. From Washington Examiner: “Given the heinous domestic terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol yesterday, I am urging the Transportation Security Administration and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to use their authorities to add the names

Trump Supporters Take Stock of Jan. 6, Feel Mischaracterized by Media Epoch Times, by Charlotte Cuthbertson Original Article WASHINGTON—Empty streets and a subdued atmosphere characterized Washington on Jan. 7 as Trump supporters processed the events of the previous day and the certification of the Electoral College votes by Congress overnight. (Snip) Marine veteran Tony Good traveled from Florida and walked to the Ellipse to hear President Donald Trump speak in the morning. He said Trump didn’t incite violence in his speech.“No, absolutely not. There’s a line between inciting to riot and standing on convictions,” Good told The Epoch Times. “He wasn’t telling anybody to riot, he was just telling them it’s our right to protest. That’s a right we have in America.”


Michelle Obama chastises ‘infantile and unpatriotic’ Trump over Capitol riots
NBC News, by Randi Richardson Original Article Michelle Obama chastised President Donald Trump over Wednesday’s riots at the Capitol, calling him “infantile and unpatriotic” before delivering an emotional critique of how police responded to the mob as compared to this summer’s Black Lives Matter protests. In a statement posted to social media on Thursday, the former first lady said the riots were a “fulfillment of the wishes of an infantile and unpatriotic president who can’t handle the truth of his own failures.” Trump supporters descended on the Capitol on Wednesday after the president delivered a speech at a rally against the election results, falsely claiming

We Ain’t Going To Submit and We Won’t Forget Gateway Pundit, by Larry Johnson Original Article After four years of a sustained coup attempt to destroy the Presidency of Donald Trump, the Washington establishment now wants us, the deplorables, to sit down, shut up and accept a steal. Here’s a news flash. We will not. This is no longer about ensuring that Donald Trump, who won the election, remains as President. The issue is more profound. It is the preservation of our Republic and a demand for genuine accountability and fairness.As I listen to the howls of faux outrage by a plethora of Democrat, Republican, media and Silicon Valley tech giants condemning any Trump supporter who dares speak out to challenge the election fraud

ABC News: ‘Getting Rid of Trump Easy Part’; ‘Cleansing’ America of ‘Movement He
Commands’ Something Else
Red State, by Mike Miller Original Article In the aftermath of the pro-Trump siege of the U.S. Capitol Building on Wednesday, ABC News Political Director Rick Klein is calling for a “cleansing” of the Trump “movement,” across America. Getting rid of Trump “is the easy part,” Klien tweeted; getting rid of the movement Trump “commands” is another. “Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else.” “Cleansing the movement”? Just me, or does that sound a tad too close to “cleansing” Adolf Hitler and the Nazis from post-WWII Germany? The following tweet became “unavailable”

‘Mr. Bean’ Star Rowan Atkinson Compares Cancel Culture to a ‘Medieval Mob Looking for Someone to Burn’ Breitbart, by Hannah Bleau Original Article British actor Rowan Atkinson veered from the leftist views embraced by the bulk of those in the entertainment industry and ripped into cancel culture, describing it as the “digital equivalent of the medieval mob roaming the streets looking for someone to burn.” “The problem we have online is that an algorithm decides what we want to see, which ends up creating a simplistic, binary view of society,” the Mr. Bean actor said in an interview with the U.K.’s Radio Times. “It becomes a case of either you’re with us or against us. And if you’re against us, you deserve to be ‘canceled.’”

VD Day

Victory over Donald Day, that is. And how LIQ does glory in his Beta-male soy-boy triumph: Biggest Loser he calls the President. I have combed through his post, and the comments of all those who take the same side, and have yet to find an argument. It is true that Donald Trump will not be President at the end of this month and Joe Biden will be. Why that is a good thing has yet to be explained, and so far as I can tell, cannot be explained unless;

  • the aim is for America to sign the Paris Accords
  • the aim is for Iran to have nuclear weapons
  • the aim is to make wearing masks a permanent feature across the United States
  • the aim is to wreck small business
  • the aim is to create a permanent underclass of unemployed welfare recipients.

I’m sure there are other reasons I am missing, but these will do for now.

The one certainty I have is that the President did not wish to see anyone invading Capitol Hill. And there is mounting evidence that it was Antifa that led that particular charge, as  in this: Former FBI Agent on the Ground at US Capitol Says at Least One Bus Load of Antifa Thugs Infiltrated Trump Demonstration. I can imagine that this was something that the media-Democrat alliance would have been happy to see, which is why it is actually reported in the press and on the news.

If it is really true that an Antifa leader really did take the photo of the one fatality in the protest inside the Capitol – Why Was Founder Of Far-Left BLM Group Filming Inside Capitol As Police Shot Protester? – then the issue is settled. But to be honest, it doesn’t matter at all if it was entirely a pro-Trump  crowd inside the building. They were not sent there by the President.

So now we have VD Day, where these toxic fools can revel in their triumph over good policy, personal freedom and the American Constitution. They really are toxic imbeciles with not an argument available other than the wish to have power in their hands so that the Hunter Bidens and Hillary Clintons of the world can profit at our expense. As for policy, these people have not a thing to add to the debate.
