Has social media jumped the shark?

First of all, for anyone here not familiar with the term, it refers to Arthur Fonzarelli, the Fonz, jumping a shark on his motorcycle on Happy Days, which was also when the show began losing ratings, setting up it’s end. Today, when something “jumps the shark” they are said to have done something that will ultimately end with their business, show, book, whatever, ending. It’s not always the cause, but it is the point where that decline begins.

With that out of the way, when you look at Facebook or Twitter, to name only two platforms, both seem to be determined to become an echo chamber for liberal viewpoints only. I have personally had threats made against me, someone even saying they know where I live and would come kill me, until I IP traced them, found their address, name, place of business, and called the PD to report them, then telling them at which point they blocked me. To my knowledge, that person is still on Twitter, while I’m banned because I would use words like pansy to describe Joe Walsh, or imbecile or snowflake to describe the rank and file liberals, or I refused to bow to the woke agenda of putting pronouns in a bio or calling a man a woman because he feels like that today.

I actually deleted my own Facebook account over 3 years ago, but when I bought a Quest II, which I’ve returned, and tried to sign up so I could use it, I was banned and told I had to provide a photo to match the account, which was brand new and had no photos on it, or it wouldn’t be unlocked. Of course you can’t call Facebook, and the only support option is to contact them on Facebook messenger, meaning there was no way to contact them at all. Yes, I tagged them on Instagram, explaining the issue, but never heard back, proving they don’t care to run a business how any other should run to keep customers, they’re paid off by advertisers, not their users, so they see it as they can ban anyone they want.

What no one is talking about is how both of these platforms say that they fully support free speech, then in the next breath censor people, claiming both to be a public forum, and privately owned. If I had the time and money, I would sue them, using Marsh V Alabama, a 1946 case, as precedent. In that example, a company owned an entire town, with employees all living in company owned houses. The company demanded that no fliers be put up after religious materials were, but lost the case, with the precedent being that a public forum, such as a street or park, even if privately owned, cannot be censored. This would apply to Twitter or Facebook today, Twitter especially as Jack Dorsey has actually used the phrase public forum to describe Twitter, yet no one is willing to do more than shrug when it’s brought up.

None of this is the interesting bit though, that’s what’s coming next. You see, Facebook and Twitter are both fighting to keep Gab and Parler from being accessible, as both of them are virtually a perfect replacement for Facebook or Twitter, Gab is almost the perfect combination of the two platforms. Comically, when Amazon broke all ties with Parler, or whenever the topic of masks comes up, liberals suddenly demand that all businesses have the right to deny anyone service, well, all businesses except ones owned by Christians that the LGBTQ+ community wants to punish for being Christian, right? In all honesty, I agree that businesses have the right to turn business away. Hobby Lobby and Chick Fil A have both said “if you don’t like us, don’t come in” and a lot of people said they’d not be going to either, both businesses however, are flourishing, while liberal owned businesses that demand you be a carbon copy of their beliefs, are floundering.

Gab, Parler, and other conservative sites are seeing traffic they can’t handle, while liberal run sites are seeing their numbers crash. Mike Lindell and Donald Trump Junior have also said they’re looking into starting their own social media platforms, which will destroy Jack and Zuck, leading to tearful rants on CNN or MSLSD about “being punished for just stopping racists” as people leave by the millions to go where speech is not restricted. Personally, I have Instagram to watch my nephew’s videos about architecture as he continues his work in college, or my niece’s art on my sister’s page. But I joined TikTok just under a month ago (mid Feb 21,) after one post, my account started blowing up. I don’t do the dances or memes, I do some of the “don’t react” challenges or how many do you know, but mostly I discuss politics, history, or my faith, and I’m likely to hit 10K followers within another month, proving that what I’m saying isn’t offensive or anything like that, and that’s what these companies can’t stand. They can’t censor all of us, but they will keep trying.

So, my question for you this time is this. Imagine a true replacement for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok come out, funded and run by someone like Mike Lindell and/or Donald Trump Jr, would you join those and leave the other platforms? What will Dorsey or Zuckerberg or the CCP for TikTok say? How long will it be until we hear that Lindell or Trump Jr has bought a web hosting company to run their own web hosting due to liberals demanding no one sell hosting to them? How long will it be before the DNC begins working to deny them the right to run their business? How long until they try to seize it because it’s making money hand over fist? The days are coming when the US will see an entire political party stand and order the country to bow and surrender everything to them, that’s the day I say I will not comply and they start working to kill me, what about you?

True Colors always shine through

For many years the political divide in the US, virtually the world over in fact, has widened drastically. During Reagan’s time in office, the US economy was booming, Americans enjoyed very low taxes, and even though a cold war was hanging over the world, security and peace was the general feeling for most people. I can remember the 1980’s as my time in Elementary and beginning Middle School, and unlike my parents’ time in those years of their lives, we didn’t have missile drills or anything of the sort, just fire or tornado drills as every school does, or at least all in the south where we don’t get hurricanes or earthquakes. Growing up in this time, naturally, meant I joined the workforce in the mid 1990’s, complained about taxes, but for the most part, just went about my life.

Looking at today however, through the lens of customer service and having been a teacher for a time, or looking back only 15 years at my time in college, the contrast is very distinct and honestly, worrying. You see, I know for a fact that many of my classmates in High School disagreed vehemently with me on politics, but we were and in many cases still are, very close friends. With most of them, we just don’t discuss politics, with others we’re very careful about that or religion, and still with a few, we jump into debates and go at it hammer and tongs, then go out for drinks. That’s not the case with the new generation though, as dissent and disagreement are all but treated as felony murder.

One need only look at Social Media, be that Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, or any other site, including the so called “conservative” sites like Parler or Gab, and you’ll see fighting that even just 20 years ago would never have been seen. Since 2017, I’ve personally been threatened with assault over 100 times, told I should be arrested for simply believing as I do, that people wish I get this disease or that and die, and a handful even said they were personally going to kill me. None of them even had their posts taken down, yet I got banned repeatedly for simply not kowtowing to their demands. I screenshotted all of the threats, called my local, county, and state law enforcement and all of them said they would treat it seriously, but I should also be very aware and cautious, meaning they acknowledge they can’t instantly appear so I must be ready to defend myself, but Twitter and Facebook shrugged at someone threatening murder.

Sadly, I see this getting far worse before even a chance it will get better, and that does mean I see assaults and worse, for mere disagreements. 2020 saw, and 2021 is still seeing, a very small percent of the population destroying businesses because they haven’t been given their way in all things, yet American politicians and media call them “mostly peaceful” in one breath, before demonizing all who disagree with them in the next. So the question is, when, if ever, will things calm down and return to a world where people can disagree without it escalating into physical conflict? Honestly, I can’t say I ever see that happening, and that is one of the saddest admissions I’ve ever had to make.

You are free to choose, to obey

Once again, the topic of choice is spreading like wildfire, and as happens every time it does, the left is ranting about their choice being the only way you may go. Over the last month or so, several states, all of them with a Republican governor and/or GOP majority in the state legislature, have lifted their mask mandates. Naturally, Democrats are furious, with Joe Biden even calling it “neanderthal thinking” when addressing it. My own state of Texas is also still recovering from Snovid21 as it’s being called, where all 254 counties declared a state of emergency, yet when pushed, Biden denied more than half aid, sending the bare minimum as he knew he couldn’t just say “nope, you just freeze and die.”

Why did this, and is this, happening? The answer is simple, the DNC has, for many years, balked at the idea of anyone not blindly obeying them. Nancy Pelosi stood in the House in January 2017 and objected to the Electoral College, and in fact Democrats have objected to all but 1 GOP win in the last 40 years, the exception being in 1985 when even they realized the objection would prove them to be tyrants. Yet, when Republicans objected, citing fraud, as Pelosi did in 2017, she all but had them arrested. Many Democrats are still calling for all who objected to be booted from Congress, while ignoring that in 1981, 1989, 2001, 2005, and 2017 they objected, citing any manner of insane theory, and they’ve cried every time as they failed.

In 1998 Jerry Nadler famously said that impeaching Bill Clinton for perjury, which he was guilty of was an attempt to undo an election, ignoring that Gore would have assumed the POTUS role, but in 2017, he demanded conviction without evidence, and again in 2021, trying to impeach Donald Trump after the inauguration of Joe Biden, proving that the DNC only cares for power and punishing all who defy them.

The latest example though, takes it to an entirely new level, and sadly, may show non Democrats now living this example. Video has been widely spread of two or three younger people getting into an Uber, where they were asked to wear masks. They proceeded to force themselves to cough, and even at one point appear to make a grab for his phone. The situation is not new either, at least not to me. You see, whenever I post that I’m grateful the governor, Gregg Abbott, has come to his senses and reversed his insane mandate, I’m told I must continue wearing it or not leave my home. I’m told loudly that this person or that will not let me into their business, and so on. I generally say “very well, you won’t see a single cent of my money” and I then ignore them, as I know a business saying “you will get your medical advice from us and no one else” is not good for business, they’ll soon reverse their decree or won’t be in business. I also then point out that if you can refuse service for not wearing a mask, then a Christian can refuse service that would force violation of their faith.

To date, 98% or more of the replies are the most hateful and vulgar comments I’ve received. I’ve had people tell me they will find me and find my Doctor to have us both jailed for not wearing masks, I’ve had someone say I should be charged with attempted murder, others say “you’ll wear it when I’m done with you,” and I generally block and ignore them. Those threatening violence, I screenshot, reply with “I’ve notified city, county, state, and federal law enforcement of your threats of violence, I’ve IP traced your account, I’m now blocking you” and then I block. All of this proves one thing, and it’s something I’ve said for many years, liberals present themselves as the party of tolerance, love, acceptance and choice, but you are only tolerated, loved, accepted, or free to choose what they order you to, if you defy them, they will actively seek your utter destruction.

To close, I have just one message for any of them that may find this rant, I will not be controlled, I will not be subjugated, and I will not fear anyone who believes they can physically force me to violate my beliefs. If you decide to try, you best come with an army and be ready to fight and hurt, because I will not go gentle. As Patrick Henry said, give me liberty or give me death, I will stand, fight, bleed and die before I live as a slave to a tyrant.

Bow or be punished?

Not even 2 months into the Biden administration, and with a Congress the Democrats can run roughshod over, Democrats are wasting no time in pushing their radical agenda. The Equality Act effectively outlaws Christian, Jewish, and Muslim faiths, as it requires everyone support and agree with all facets of the LGBT+ agenda. Disagreeing on marriage or any other point is to be treated as “racist bigotry,” but there’s a simple question that should shut this down completely. “What does the Constitution say about this?” The answer to that is simple.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof….

Yes, the first amendment also covers free speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and the right to petition, but the first part literally prohibits any law that prohibits the free exercise of religion, which means that you cannot tell Christians they must agree with anything that violates their faith, but that’s never stopped Democrats and never will.

The Second Amendment says “shall not be infringed” but by installing their puppets onto federal court benches, they’ve been able to slowly restrict #2A rights more and more, until now, when they firmly believe they can essentially outlaw Christian beliefs, and trust me, they won’t stop there.

So, my question to you is simple, when you are told to bow and submit to their rule, will you, or will you stand, fight, and possibly die, for your beliefs?

Be silent or be silenced!

If one thing has become crystal clear in the last 4 years, it’s that the left is no longer covert in their push to dominate and rule as tyrants. The DNC could not accept that the peasantry elected Donald Trump in 2016, so they spent every moment not made to do their jobs trying to prove “collusion” which they failed to do at every turn. When it was proven Obama’s administration broke US law to spy on then Candidate Trump, it was ignored.

Today? Biden’s team wasted no time in setting up calls with other world leaders once he declared himself POTUS elect, but in 2016 that was “collusion” or “violating the Logan act” or some other rubbish when Trump, who was POTUS elect at the time, did the very same thing. If that doesn’t prove the DNC’s core belief is “we are always right, you are always wrong, even if you agree with an obey us, you’re a bigot we will rule or destroy” nothing will.

This mindset has moved slowly from the halls of liberal Congressional offices, into the mainstream, and further, and now has all but infected every aspect of life. Sites that were, only a year or so ago, very open to true free speech, now regularly reject comments or ban accounts for “violating community standards” while ignoring that there was no violation, or actual violations of the rules by liberals. Case in point, here are the “standards” from The Political Insider, followed by a comment I tried to post.

Nowhere in my comment did I attack anyone, lie, nowhere was I racist or in any other way in violation of their “standards,” yet my comment was rejected. Why? I can only guess, but notice I point out the DNC wants to flood the country will illegal immigrants, to cripple then destroy our economy and health care system, so they can rule the ashes. Only in 2016 did the term illegal immigrant become “racist” because the media decided that no matter the fact it’s a term describing “any person who enters the US illegally” they just knew “Trump hates Mexicans.” Four years of proof to the country has been ignored, and now saying illegal immigrant is “racist.”

Folks, this is something directly from Orwell, Bradbury, or Huxley. We’re being told we have no choice but to obey the government, it’s only what they’ll do when millions say “WE WILL NOT COMPLY” that determines if we end up in Fahrenheit 451, 1984, Animal Farm or Brave New World.

The 1984 adaptation of that book, starring John Hurt, was very well done and true to the novel. The new version on HBO of Fahrenheit 451, surprisingly, is also very true to the novel, and something I would highly recommend watching. Both of those show how tyrants use their power to strip anyone who doesn’t bow to their rule of their very ability to exist in society. Sadly, the revisionists are already working to turn these warnings into something praising tyranny, as proven by Peacock’s adaptation of Brave New World.

I won’t apologize for spoilers as honestly if you’ve not read the book, you’ll likely say Peacock got it right and still never open the book to see I’m right. In the book, Huxley describes a world, New London, where humans are all genetically engineered into castes, with anyone who gets pregnant forced by law to abort the child. Huxley describes an extremely racist caste system, one of two things I think Peacock’s version got right in their portayal, the other being the hedonistic way of life, where children are taught to be sexual beings at VERY young ages, as well as being taught they belong to everyone else, and must obey higher castes.

In the book, Bernard visits “the savage lands,” a reservation of sorts, where people aren’t drugged regularly, still get married, have religion and raise families. Of course he feels all of this is a backward way of life, but finds a young man and his mother, who turn out to be a woman left there by mistake 20 or 30 years ago by an Alpha+, so he brings these two back. The woman OD’s within a day, leaving John alone. Bernard tries to get him to reject all he knows and give in to New London’s “just take the Soma and have some sex, then you’ll be happy” way of life, but he never does and runs from the city, living alone and the story ends.

Peacock, run by NBC and obviously a very liberal organization, decided that this wasn’t right, so they portray the caste system as one where those in higher positions care for those beneath them, where children are happier not being in families, where the savages are really just actors who choose to suffer without the amazing life in New London, and where John does integrate for a while, then stupidly leaves, leaving Bernard, in the wake of New London’s destruction, with a plan to conquer the savages and start it all over again.

So, my question for you today is very simple, what kind of life do you want? One where you are free to make your own decisions, or one where you’re kept pliant and obedient, by force or by chemistry? I grew tired of being told “no, just obey my commands” months ago, I grew tired of “BELIEVE SCIENCE, BUT NOT THE SCIENCE OF A DOCTOR YOU’VE BEEN EXAMINED BY, ONLY MY SCIENCE” months ago, and I am still tired of it. We are on the cusp of falling into a world that will take so long to escape it may not happen before the world ends, will we step over the line and fall to living under tyrants or step back? I know my choice and I will smile as they gun me down for refusing to comply, what will you do?

Leaving YouTube

Ask any conservative on YouTube, or hell, anyone who isn’t a lock step “you must obey us or be forced to comply” liberal, and you’ll quickly learn that YouTube hates them! One of the biggest “gun-tubers,” who ensures everything is safe, and while entertaining, also educates, is never monetized on that channel, that’s Demolition Ranch, how much money does YouTube make from ads on his channel, but because he’s not anti-2A, they don’t share it?

I don’t support showing people harming others, being stupid with firearms, or advocating violence or worse, but none of that happens on his channel, nor have I shown or said anything on mine to warrant any punishment, yet I had a video where I discussed how someone turned in a sexual predator for assaulting them (not in the US) taken down for a BS reason, and just last week, one discussing Sol Pais and only after I appealed, clearly stating I did not show any graphic content, was it reinstated. Now, I know it’s most likely that I’ve pissed off a snowflake somewhere and they’re reporting everything they can, hoping to get me banned, so I’m robbing them of that pleasure, I’m moving to Rumble.

As I say in all of my videos, civil discussion is the key to debate and learning. We don’t learn from arguments, other than learning who to avoid speaking to. Yet, people still feel the need to insult and belittle, and they get blocked. I’ve personally had people threaten bodily harm on me, or worse, on Twitter, and was told it “did not violate community standards,” but my calling Joe Walsh a pansy (and he is) got me booted. YouTube allows liberals to spew their hate and worse, but a Conservative pointing out that a liberal is wrong is to be destroyed.

I will ultimately delete my videos, so I wanted to ensure that, before I leave, I ensured you have a way to find me over there. This link goes to my Class-time channel, while this link goes to what will become my SHED Talks channel, all things that aren’t Class Time videos or gaming videos, which will have their own channel if/when I begin playing something new.

Big Tech is working overtime to silence all dissent and they don’t care who they have to subjugate to accomplish their goal. I abandoned Facebook over a year ago, and haven’t looked back, Twitter now bans me within an hour of creating a new account, and I’m sure Instagram will find a reason before long. I am on Gab as Sheepdog Smokey, as well as Parler and I even joined TikTok where I am finding a LOT of patriots, and funny videos. I will always show my face and you can also know it’s me because the profile picture will be me as well, and I doubt anyone is trying to copy me, so there’s that too.

We are living in very tenuous times folks, keep your ears to the ground, eyes open, head on a swivel, and your powder dry. The day is coming when those who believe themselves above all others will demand obedience and worship, and anyone who dares defy them will be labeled an enemy of the state. That day is the day that liberty will fully be under attack, and only patriots will be able to save it.

Time for a refresher, again

In the last day or so, I’ve seen, and been told, that I’m completely wrong about the Second Amendment, that it doesn’t cover anything the liberal speaking wants banned, that it’s for hunting only, and that it’s only to allow the Militia to bear arms, then I’m told the Militia is the national guard, a concept not even considered at the time the Constitution was written.

Militia can be VERY LOOSELY used to describe a military force, as the words Militia and Military share a root in language, but that’s it. The Founders, who despite what the left wants to say, were incredibly intelligent, knew that any organized force, having sworn an oath, could be corrupted and used to subjugate the people. Even with as carefully created an oath as the US has, where the military and national guards all swear to the Constitution, they knew the day may come when those forces would be corrupt, so they specifically said Militia, which is specifically a civilian organization.

One need only go as far as a single quote from George Mason to see that. “I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” Mason, of course, is completely correct, as he witnessed the military of his day, sworn only to the King, ordered to subjugate the colonies, and willing to do so. Roughly 3% of those living in the colonies, however, formed a militia and fought back, which directly led to the writing of the Second Amendment.

As such, the Militia is and always will be a civilian organization, and in fact, specifically requires it’s members to resign any position or office under the Government. If you are in the Military, Guard, even as a reserve member, or hold any government job, all the way down to janitor, you are barred from serving in the militia. It is because of this the words “the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” were used. The full text, when you account for the language of the time, would mean “As it may be necessary for the citizenry to one day defend themselves from a tyrant government, to remain secure and free, they shall not be infringed in any way in their right to own, carry, and use firearms.”

Sadly, decades of purposeful bad teaching, re-writing of history, and more, have lead to a new generation of teachers who think they are properly teaching, and 2 or more generations of students graduating high school firmly believing that no one save the government may own firearms. They argue using terms such as “military grade weapon,” ignoring that the military issues more pistols than M-16’s, or very close, that shotguns are used very often, and in fact, the vast majority of rifles are not select fire, as that is only for “spray and pray,” or “assault weapon,” ignoring the fact that the term literally just means “a weapon used to assault someone.” I have personally shown a photo of an AR-15 and a Mini 14 to someone, then asked “which rifle is allowable” and they point to the Mini 14. When I then show them video proving that in all ways but appearance and customizability, they are the same weapon, in that they fire the same round, are both semi automatic, and in fact use the same magazines, I’m either told both should then be banned, or that I’m a liar who faked a video. The vehemence against firearms is so pervasive that it’s all but impossible to even come close to someone using logic to work out that the AR means Armalite Rifle, that it’s not “military grade,” and in fact, their arguments are all crap.

Perhaps the saddest of all is the hypocrisy in government. Hundreds of people guarded by men and women with the very rifle they hate, want to disarm those they are supposed to serve. Just this week, the DNC has said they wish to bar the public from the Capitol in DC completely, Pelosi called for automatic weapons, most of them vehicle mounted meaning larger calibers, to be in place for the inauguration, and the barriers around the public houses of Congress show that we are now being ruled by people who openly hate us, and the fact that for now, they can’t just roll up and force compliance. I know the day is coming, and while I pray I’ll be long dead, I know I may not be, and I will promise once again, I will not be disarmed save by my death. I will die on my feet, fighting as a free man, before I live as a servant to a tyrant on my knees.

God bless, keep your eyes and ears open, your head on a swivel and your powder dry.

The future?

The crackdown on conservatives across social media is only going to get worse. I know there are multiple theories about what’s going to happen on 20 Jan 2020, but it doesn’t matter which is right, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and every other platform, save the very new ones run by conservatives, will continue to ban conservatives, saying we “incited violence” or for “hate speech,” while ignoring violence and worse from liberals. Also, and as many predicted, Twitter and other social platforms are losing billions, and it won’t be until they are bankrupt that they realize why.

I can understand the desire and need to protect people from harm, but when you extend that to censorship, you begin doing harm. Laura Loomer is a perfect example of this. As she exposed liberals for the liars they are, social media began to crack down, banning her, blocking people from even mentioning her, and that wasn’t it. By now, she cannot use Paypal, Venmo, Uber, or even order from Uber Eats, and has found that she’s in the NICS database as a prohibited possessor despite having never committed any crime, leaving her unable to travel without a lot of work, unable to do business with many people, and quite literally at the mercy of any criminal who wishes her harm.

This, however, is not likely to continue unabated, as those doing this are beginning to see that they are losing money, fast. In just the last few weeks, Twitter and Facebook, after banning President Donald Trump’s personal account “indefinitely,” have lost over $50 billion and, despite pressure to block Parler, their biggest competitor, that trend is likely to continue, which will mean those tech giants will ultimately be forced out of business, or to sell to someone who will reverse course, although I doubt even that will save either of them. The only company not suffering, yet, is Amazon, as they are still able to play on the shutdown to be the only option for many people to get goods they need, but as more people get fed up, they will leave Amazon as well, returning to shopping locally, and then the fun begins.

You see, when these liberal run companies are hemorrhaging money faster than an amputee loses blood, they will blame the very people they told not to do business with them, or prevented from logging in, while crying about their “right to do business freely,” ignoring their own actions to deny others that very right. CNN, while crying about Fox, Newsmax, OANN, and other networks, openly talks about doing all they can to prevent those very networks from even operating, blatantly admitting to their plan to being the only network, an American Pravda if you will.

Americans, sadly, have been spoon fed a careful plan of socialism and submission for so long, that millions will cheer their subjugation and control, but millions of others will never comply, and then it gets bad. You see, when the government, run by liberals who refuse to allow fair elections, thus ensuring their own tenure, realizes they can’t control people, they will change and try to do so by force. The Military, including the National Guard, having sworn to support and defend the Constitution, will abandon their posts in droves, and what’s left will be rolled into a new force, beholden only to the DNC, and happy to follow the order of “they will comply with our wishes or you will shoot them.” When those thugs then invade small town America, ordering people to comply, the shooting starts, and at the end, the DNC will be left with a “military” afraid of those they subjugate but more afraid of defying the tyrants in charge, and a country that now must force the very liberals they’ve pandered to for decades to work.

I wonder, if/when it gets to the point of ordering antifa or blm to shut up, go to work, and pay taxes, will we hear “but you said I could be free, I don’t want to work, why are you doing this?” Then of course the crying about how the “evil right wing bigots didn’t warn anyone, and now they’re all dead so I have to work.” Or more likely, will the snowflakes be cowed by the only people with guns, and trudge off, accepting the meager rations given to the workers who pay 100% in taxes?

Biden admits Harris is in charge.

For months, many people have wondered just when Kamala Harris would find a way to push Joe Biden aside to become President should the Democrats win the 2020 Presidential election. Biden’s recent foot injury reignited those questions, only for Biden himself to confirm all suspicions. In a recent video, he admits that should he and Harris disagree on something, he’ll “come down with a disease and have to resign.” He even said “as I told Barack,” indicating he would have resigned as VP to allow Obama to install a different yes-man to the office were there a point they couldn’t agree on.

When coupled with the multiple reports of fraud, video of ballots being pulled from under a table in a suitcase, dead Americans voting, and even tens of thousands of Georgians who were not 18 at the time of the election voting, this just rings another warning bell about the presumptive Democrat administration.

Americans vote every four years, not for the 2nd place candidate to oust the Presidential nominee, but for that nominee. The election of 2016 saw claims of fraud and “Russian collusion” from the Democrats, only for 2020 to see the Democrats all but foaming at the mouth as they demand no one even investigate the election, but to just declare Biden the winner.

Biden floated a cabinet pick, with the man named being on record as saying life after 75 isn’t worth living, yet he would have to work for a man now 3 years past that point. Is it any wonder that within a week of the election, one of the most common searches on Google was “how do I change my vote?”

Once again, the left is violent

Beginning in late spring of 2020, the country, and in fact the world, has watched as liberal groups have rioted, robbed businesses blind, and burned anything they can to the ground, all over what many say are manipulated events designed to foment this hate in society. George Floyd, while he should not have been killed by those arresting him, was extremely high on several illegal drugs, had a history of violence, and resisted arrest. It’s very well known that when high on any of many drugs, people can exhibit enhanced strength, Floyd all but attacked the officers, so was put on the ground, and sadly, one of the officers chose to act in a way that, possibly, lead to the man’s death. Had they let him go, and he hurt someone else, the riots would still have happened as it would have been a case of “police won’t do their jobs and keep us safe, we must defund them,” followed by wanton destruction of everything possible.

Today however, the narrative is changing, slightly in some cases, not slightly at all in others. The elections of 2000 and 2016 both saw the DNC candidate sue and protest as long as they could, working to find a way to change the results so they would become President, Gore famously sued for 37 days, and the media and liberals the world over praised him for “working to ensure the election was not unfair.” Today however, as the media watched on 3 November and called states for Biden with more than 50% of votes uncounted, while refusing to call states for Trump when over 85% of votes were counted, then magically, votes show up after counting was supposedly stopped that tip a state to Biden, Trump is required to concede and all but say “I’ll leave now, we don’t have to wait until 20 January.”

Well, it’s now escalated, and while Twitter has suspended the miscreant, this is one person, and there are many others who think the same. It seems that Adam Rahuba decided to tell the President Of The United States that he had 4 days to concede or he and his comrades would begin ATTACKING PEOPLE and blocking the economy in full in “conservative areas.” He also said they were armed and would “retaliate to attempts at vehicular manslaughter.”

Now, I live in Texas, where thankfully, our state government has yet to demand we surrender our rights to keep and bear arms, or to defend ourselves from attack. If I am driving and see armed people blocking the street, you can bet my truck will be doing 70 or more as I do all I can to escape those attempting to stop me for God only knows what purpose. I’ve watched as people are stopped, dragged from their vehicle, then assaulted and left, all but dead, laying in the street. The question though, really is a simple one, why do liberals feel they have the right to assault, steal, and destroy, and that any attempt to stop them is a crime? The answer, sadly, is just as simple, they’ve been told that anyone trying to stop them “doing as they please” is “denying their right to happiness.”

It’s very simple, YOU DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO HAPPINESS! You have the right to PURSUE HAPPINESS, which also means you may fail in that pursuit. The very people screaming that you can’t drive where they say you can’t, that you can’t defend your life when they attack you, and worse, are the very people who would demand you be hanged at dawn if you even sidestepped to go around them when they block traffic. It’s going to get worse before it gets better, so keep your eyes and ears open, your head on a swivel, and your powder dry.

All thanks to Obamacare

In 2012, famously, Nancy Pelosi said of the ACA that we “had to pass it to find out what’s in it.” Obama had said “if you like your plan you can keep your plan” and “if you like your Doctor you can keep your Doctor.” The first proved to show us “what’s in it” was astronomical premiums and deductibles, then we found we lost our plans and Doctors.

Just over a week ago, my foot was in BAD shape, so I chatted with the online service I subscribe to, where I was prescribed topical and oral medications, but they didn’t work. A few days later I went to the local ER, where the prescriptions were changed, only to see those make me break out in a rash that was worrying, so I went back to the ER two days later, where I was sent to hospital. After a night of little sleep, a specialist saw me and my prescriptions were changed once again, this time they worked and I’m almost back to 100%, but now I face medical bills after a week off where, due to having no vacation time, I am a week short on pay.

Thankfully, my debtors are working with me, so my burden is lower, but not low enough to ensure the loss of a week of pay is unnoticed, yet those in DC still prattle on about how we “must” just accept socialist healthcare, where the costs will see tax burdens increase exponentially, while ignoring the countless people telling them of the failures of the ACA.

I can’t help but wonder just what it will take to convince the vaunted members of Congress that they are, as always, wrong.

Listen but also think

The last few days have been filled with post after post all over the web about how this or that is going to happen, no question. Everyone has their theory, and everyone is vehement in their defense of their theory, which is to be expected, but with everyone saying something different, a lot of people are going to be wrong, at least in some way.

What I will say is that I believe the lessons of Sun Tzu are being followed by some in positions of power, to such a degree, that we will never see what happens, or understand it, until long after it’s done. You see, when you have an opponent who is hell bent on your defeat, you need to have patience and use certain strategies to ensure you follow some very simple steps.

One, never show your hand, or even hint at it. I’ve never hidden the fact that I support President Donald Trump. I have watched for nearly four decades as the political divide has widened to put the Grand Canyon to shame in it’s size. In the 1980’s, the country was flourishing, so those who have, forever I believe, wanted to subjugate the country under socialism, decided to simply bide their time. The DNC convinced Reagan to grant amnesty to countless illegal immigrants by promising a border barrier, which of course, they never delivered. In 1992, Bill Clinton began their slow march to success, but was hampered by a GOP Congress on many fronts, and in 2000, George W Bush was elected and they began to bide their time again. The left has tried to impeach every GOP President since Eisenhower, but has never been successful, but in 1998, the GOP did impeach, and convict then censure, Bill Clinton, surely angering them greatly. So, they’ve been showing their hand at every turn, never hiding their goal of raising taxes, opening the border, and ensuring the American People are ruled, not governed by public servants.

In 2016, the DNC was so sure their tactics, which had worked for decades and only achieved granting them more and more power, would ensure Hillary Clinton would become President, but when that failed, they threw all caution to the wind. Members of the DNC openly called for violence, others simply ignored it while they lied about it when forced, to the point that the current ticket has a VP Candidate that actually said the White House is “our rightful place,” admitting that they truly believe only they may ever be President and VP. 2020 has only served to further their descent into open tyranny, with their supporters preventing anyone from observing vote counting, boarding up windows, hundreds of thousands of votes are “found” in the wee hours of the morning, and 100% of those go to their candidate, judges throw out challenges, all leading to one thing, this ends up at the Supreme Court, which explains why they fought so hard to ensure Trump never managed to put anyone on that bench.

But what happens if you don’t show your hand? Simply, you let your opponent make all the mistakes, they fall into every pot hole, and when it’s all said and done, they are exposed and easily stopped. President Donald Trump attended a military high school as a teen, no matter if he served in the military after or not is irrelevant. Having studied History to the point of earning a degree, having been AFJROTC in high school, and specifically studying Military History as a subject, I know he would have learned the lessons of Sun Tzu. His adult life, turning a loan of $1,000,000 into a business empire worth over $4,000,000,000 in roughly 50 years, simply, shows a ruthless side that ensures he will not be beaten unless it’s a fair fight, which this certainly is not!

When this fully plays out, we will have concrete proof of all fraud, we will see powerful people held accountable for their crimes, and sadly, we will see a time of heightened unrest. The DNC, and even some foreign countries, are threatening military action if “Trump refuses to leave office,” but they forget two things. First, the US Military swears to uphold and defend the US Constitution, not a person, and second, the US Military is the strongest in the world! Trump has brought MANY Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines home from battlefields that, only 4 years ago, Democrats demanded they come home from, until Trump started doing it, and they demanded endless wars all over the planet. The National Guard is, at it’s core, a non-military force, or para-military force if you will. But, they swear on their State Constitution and on the US Constitution, and if called to Federal Service, are instantly in the Army or Air Force (or other service depending on their state, Texas has only Army and Air National Guard,) and beholden to their oath alone.

If either candidate, with the amount of evidence we have now, let alone more, declares victory and calls for the process to stop and their declaration be obeyed, commits, simply, treason! Should Joe Biden, despite challenges in courts in multiple states, SCOTUS orders to allow observers (so far) in PA, declare victory and call for the system to just obey him, that is an attempt to overthrow the government by claiming to control it, and that is treason. There is only one punishment for treason, I’ll let you look that up. How does that happen though? To publicly carry out said punishment would, quite simply, throw such a firework into a powder keg situation, that the country would be burning in minutes. But, to quietly address all of the issues, then release just enough information, with people “withdrawing from society” or something else happening, well, that’s easily accepted. I cannot firmly speak to the John McCain situation, other than there is evidence he personally handled the now proven false Steele dossier, meaning he was part of an attempt to remove a duly elected President, and his sudden health issues and death, well, it’s not beyond belief that something happened we’ll not know about, nor will even our great great great grandchildren, only decades or centuries after something like that could it be admitted, if even then.

Look at the JFK situation, where so many people question the event, but the official documents are still sealed, or what was released was so vague, no one knows still. My parents were in middle school on 22 November 1963, both believe, as I do, that “something was rotten in the State of Denmark” that day. Were someone to release undeniable proof that they’ve been right for 57 years ago, well, many would demand severe punishment for all those still alive who were involved. That alone would throw the government into chaos no matter if they do it or not, that is not something either side should want.

Summing up this rant, I will never tell you to not look at every angle of a situation, nor would I tell you this person or that person is wrong and I’m right, but I will tell you to think about all angles, research everything, and make up your own mind. Sadly, with the situations today, I’ll also say to be prepared to defend yourself, have the tools and skills needed already in place, keep your head on a swivel, and be aware of everything, that is often the difference in a situation going your way or not.

Eyes open, and remember, God is in control!

How much longer?

We’ve watched since February and March, when we were told it would be “two weeks to flatten the curve,” only to see society locked down more and more as we just sit and let those in power rule. Even in “conservative” Texas, we are forced to wear masks, despite countless medical experts saying they don’t work, or studies showing this is insane.

Today, I found video of Doctors in the Netherlands stating, very succinctly, that Covid 19 is a flu virus, and thus, we do not have a pandemic.

I’ve seen videos of this sort banned on social media for over a month now, and until today, it seemed that no one would be even asked to stop censoring the experts. Cheekily, I ask Twitter users or YouTube commenters to prove they are an MD, with years of experience studying viruses, and their peer reviewed, double blind, study, proving them wrong, but now it’s not out of cheek, but to prove they are not in any way qualified to debunk MD’s who say this pandemic BS is just that, BS!

So, the question now truly is, how much longer will people sit idle as they are controlled under systems that would make Orwell roll in his grave?

Could you really survive if you bugged out?

I’ve seen many people on social media in the last few months talking about their bug out bag, or plans if they have to live in the woods, and with very few exceptions, I just have to laugh. Warrior Poet Society posted a video on YouTube that was amazingly informative for anyone who’s thinking along these lines, it boils down to one thing, 99% of people will be raided by those with the skills to do so. Your “arsenal” will go to them, as will your food, water, and so on.

There will, honestly, be three or four groups of people if society truly crumbles. First, you’ll have those with the skills to survive, either working as a team to protect wherever they fortify, or alone, so far from people, you’ll never even smell them. Two, the raiders, they’ll fortify a location, and raid for supplies. Three, the victims, those raided, some will go with the raiders to join their collective, others will be left without anything. And finally, the slaves, those who refuse to leave until it’s too late, stuck in a major city where warlords will rule.

So, the question is which will you be. Honestly, it would be hard to be the first type, as that would include the possibility of leaving everyone in your life behind. I know I couldn’t do that, but thankfully, my parents, nephew, brother and future sister in law would be coming with me. There are others who would refuse, but honestly, they cut me and my other family out of their lives a while back. My Father taught us how to catch fish, snare a rabbit, grow vegetables, collect water, build a shelter, make fire without a match, and how to fight, starting at a young age. I know that, even if alone, I would have food, water, and shelter, which are all you really “need” to survive, not to mention the tools and training to ensure I am not attacked and stolen from. When coupled with my plan to be so far from people, I fade from memory, I believe I could last a while.

The point of this isn’t to be morbid or otherwise scare you. I could be happy just sitting in my tent and listening to nature, or watching YouTube, but many couldn’t, they “need” their tech. The purpose is a thought experiment. Could you, if you had to, walk away from your comfortable home (if you couldn’t fortify and defend it) and survive long time, outside of society?

Is the DNC as we knew it gone?

Every election since I’ve been able to understand what’s going on, I’ve watched Republicans and Democrats go at it hammer and tongs to win a Congressional seat, Governorship, or other office. In the 1980, as I’ve learned as I was 3 that year, Ronald Reagan asked “Are you better off now than four years ago,” and the country resoundingly said no. In 1984 Walter Mondale tried the same trick, and the country said yes, and re-elected Reagan. 1988 saw George HW Bush elected on Reagan’s coat tails, but in 1992, back to form, Bill Clinton pointed out little things, like Bush’s “read my lips, no new taxes” promise, then how Congress had raised taxes, even if Bush had signed the bill. He was charismatic, looking like a man you’d invite over for dinner and game night, and of course, won. This has always been, until now, how I’ve seen Democrats. They pander to every group, saying what they know that group wants to hear, no matter if they contradict themselves when with other groups, and the media ensures their lies and flip flopping are as invisible as possible.

2008 saw Barack Obama use the same tactics against McCain/Palin, saying what people wanted to hear, like “yes we can” or “hope and change,” how he’d make sure everyone had health care, talking about the Republican Party as if they were the most horrible bigots on the planet, just not in those words. His allies in the DNC and media, as always, hyped him more than any celebrity, ignoring their blatant attacks on Sarah Palin, as they claim to be the “party of women,” and Obama/Biden won. 2012 saw Romney/Ryan, with the same tactics, using Romney gaffes or Ryan’s youth against them, saying anything and everything, and they won again.

But 2016 changed everything, and Hillary Clinton, like Al Gore in 2000, lost the Electoral College and thus, the race. The 2000 election saw Al Gore, who is not known for being personable, yell and rant at people, making wild claims about “inventing the internet,” or how the world would end in 10 years if he wasn’t elected, and it didn’t. Then 2016 saw Hillary Clinton, the first female Presidential candidate, with a running mate who’s son is a criminal, who had said “what difference does it make” when speaking about her failure to help US diplomats when a US Embassy was attacked and those diplomats tortured and killed. Every statement she made demonized all who would not bow to her, showed her disdain for even those who would vote for her, or dodged questions when anyone dared to ask anything that would expose her.

Now, in 2020, former VP Joe Biden was declared the DNC nominee after almost no voting in the DNC primary, and Senator Kamala Harris, a woman who all but demanded he kiss her feet during debates early on, is his VP nominee. Biden won’t leave his home due to “fearing Coronavirus” while Harris pledges to raise taxes and return to paying off terrorists. Everything is about how “racist” or “sexist” Donald Trump is, and every statement is wrong. Donald Trump has never shown any racist tendencies, hires women to top positions in his administration, and has condemned violence, leaving the “media” to have to selectively edit his clips, leaving out where he directly said he was not referring to white supremacists when he said “good people” were on “both sides” of an issue. Many Democrats went on TV demanding he “denounce the white supremacists” ignoring that he had said he deplores violence from any side, until he denounced, by name, white supremacists and antifa. That was too far though, as antifa are DNC pawns.

So now we see Kenosha all but a pile of ash, Portland almost 90 days of constant riots, and only when polls start showing that Biden is being hurt by the DNC and Media LYING about the violence from liberals, do they say that Biden must denounce the riots and blame Trump. Honestly, at this point, I firmly expect to hear that it’s too dangerous due to Covid19 and the riots, to hold an election, so “The House of Representatives will do their duty and vote on behalf of the country,” and when that fails, there will be calls for Martial Law to “ensure the safety of all” by subjugating everyone. I don’t know that this will happen in my life, but make no mistake, the DNC are the party that read 1984 and took it as instructions, they read Fahrenheit 451 and agreed that banning any book they don’t personally approve of is to be done, and they will soon be the party that read Brave New World and will decide they will begin engineering citizens into castes, and keep those castes drugged.

Is this the country, the future, you want?
