What Happens To The Reagan/Constitutional Conservative Movement Now?

 conservativewilderness

Refusing to embrace Trump is said will relegate Principled Conservatives to a political wilderness of irrelevance.  What happens to Conservatives without a home?  Does it even have a future?

We’ve spent the last decades watching the Constitutional Conservatism that Reagan branded into the GOP get trod underfoot within the Republican Party via the Establishment leadership.  It should not have surprised us, because that same Dole/Bush liberal Rockefeller Republican opposed Reagan with vehemence in his runs for the presidency – and even after he was in office.  They made it a cause to eradicate it from their party once Reagan left office, because to have listened to the beltway bunch – we are an embarrassment to their party.  There is probably no better definition of this than in Angelo Codevillas excellent essay: America’s Ruling Class and the Perils of Revolution, which if you have not read – I highly invite you to do so.

But today – it is self-evident that the Republican Party we thought was the home of limited government, Constitutional Conservatism, is nothing of the sort.  Since 2012 the leadership made it clear via rules changes that Reagan Conservatives and Originalists were to sit down, shut up and vote the party without having a say in how things are run or what policies and platforms to cherish.   The Leadership under Mitch McConnell even threatened to ‘punch us in the nose’ for daring to primary him with a Tea Party favorite.  They lied to the entire base promising to stop Obama’s Fundamental transformation if we handed them the Senate.  But the polls had barely closed and the Leadership was already giving us the middle finger.   The Ruling Class leadership established themselves as nothing but career collaborators with the Democrats and Conservative efforts to demand the foundations we respect, should be upheld.  But we were rebuffed and their contempt for us laid bare.

The Establishment worked harder to oppose their own base than the unConstitutional affronts of Obama and the Democrats.  Even to the point of empowering and funding his entire agenda.  It was a punch to the gut after a slap in the face and they told us at the beginning of this 2016 election cycle to lie back and enjoy the rape.

In the aftermath of the 2016 Primaries and the debacle of Trump – many Conservatives are now left wondering ‘what happens to the movement now?’.

Does it morph into this Nationalist Populist Fascism Trump and his hordes are preaching?  Does it get folded into Socialism Light under Rience Priebus?  Does it get redefined by Trump into something we would never recognize?   Does it need to depart the GOP and form or work to build a new party?  If so, and a departure is necessary, what then?

What happens to the core principles and foundations that are now apparently a minority within the GOP and the electorate itself?

I may have an answer as to what we might see, because I have seen a very similar thing happen, albeit not politically.

The fallout from Apostasy.

I’ve witnessed a microcosm of what I think is happening to Conservatism within churches in this country.

Now before you discount that and think that church fellowship and politics have nothing in common – understand that for most Constitutional Conservatives – their political cores are a belief system, doctrines of Americanism if you will – that becomes the prism by which they look at everything in society.  Everything.  Not just political campaigns.  But how they live their lives.   Not unlike how some Christians look at the world through the prism of the bible.

If you think that notion is absurd, then you are not a Constitutional Conservative.  You are something else entirely.

I’ve witnessed and/or been part of several large corporate churches having gone apostate on their foundational doctrines to embrace ‘new truth’ (i.e.: homosexual marriage, Chrislam or even changes in basic doctrinal beliefs) all for the sake of ‘getting new people to like us’ and grow the weekly coffer. Often it is done under the pretense of ‘preaching the Gospel’ to the unreached.    In one case, a church simply had individuals in leadership who wanted to force the church to accept heresy as a doctrine or tear the entire church down and remake it into their own image.  Some due to individuals in leadership that hated the church itself for their own personal reasons.

What happened in those experiences I think, is what we are watching take place now with Conservatism and the GOP.  And here is what happens:

During the process of ‘fundamental Transformation’ – the introduction of heretical ‘new truths’ are preached within the church.  Some doctrines declared outdated, un-useful, offensive or just plain wrong. A discussion is started about adopting or morphing other doctrines into their own. Most nod blindly in agreement, because a large number of brethren believe whatever they are told from the pulpit, rather than prove what is true themselves.  However, those who have their nose in scripture are alarmed and upset at the perversions being preached.  The leadership does nothing and actually assists the doctrinal changes begin implemented, often by proof texting the bible to authorize the changes.  So the new doctrines are imposed, incrementally at first – and then full implementation despite the complaints from longtime members who recognize apostasy.

A large number of brethren convince themselves that they can change the church from within, and work to rectify the growing discord and contentions with the elders and pastors.  Often they are placated with meaningless promises of involvement in church board decisions, or their suggestions and complaints will be taken under advisement.  They soon find their efforts get them branded as sowers of discord.

The Ministry then goes full tilt to preach ‘unity’ and ‘obedience’ to whatever the pastorship says and or decrees is the new doctrine.  This happens week after week, so as to condition the members to accept what the church government tells them.  Often there are sermon series on Romans 13, and the requirement to obey church hierarchy.

Those who continue to complain or discuss the apostasy with others, are ostracized, sermonized against and ultimately disfellowshipped, marked and put out of the congregation.  This causes a huge backlash and the leadership almost always tamps down with an authoritarian fist, warning brethren they will lose their souls if they do not accept the new doctrines and to either shut up and keep their discontent to themselves, or leave.

A major split occurs (which is where I think we are currently at with the GOP).  A number of those who recognize apostasy leave the church to form new smaller congregations.  The diminishment of the larger church is almost immediate – and usually a war of words, legal actions and other nefarious behaviors are directed at those who decide they no longer want to be part of the Mother Church.  Members of the older congregation are instructed to have no contact with those who left, and sometimes they work to discredit, sabotage and ruin the efforts those that left are making to form a new congregation.  Often internecine wars go on for years, causing more discord and division.  The larger church often aligns itself with larger apostate churches to keep their tithes and offerings up – but in short order they are folded into the churches they have adopted doctrines from and cease to be who they once were.

The dangerous fallout of such splits is the disillusionment in God that many people suffer.  Some quit the faith altogether.  Some run back to embrace ideas and beliefs they once practiced before conversion.  Some grow hostile to the very essence of Christianity, God and the bible itself.  Still there remains a remnant of core principled Believers who recognize they have no home and work to establish new fellowships among likeminded.

Among the splintered groups comes those ‘leaders’ who believe in the core doctrines that were discarded, but they now want a following for themselves.   So they work to yank as many people from the now irrelevant ‘mother church’ into their own congregations, promising them a restoration of ‘truth once delivered’ by a church that has gone apostate.  They succeed for awhile, but then members are subjected to the personal interpretations of the ‘new leader’.  Like sheep – lots of brethren will follow a man because of his oratory skills or influence.  People want to go where there are numbers rather than dwell within a handful.  But the warring factions of those who split the first time, split again and again – most often over whose name is on the door and who is in charge.  Some insist upon the precise and exact interpretation of everything from prophecy to which translation must be the only one referenced, or they declare the splintered group to be just another apostate group.  More splits occur.

This leads to a tiny minority of core people beholden to doctrine rather than men or numbers that are left to fellowship together. Home fellowships or congregations are on the rise with small groups renting storefronts.  Their numbers are less than a couple dozen people every week.  Their influence in the community is limited or next to nothing.

The results are that the brethren are jaded and worry about which charlatan or false preacher will come in and try to lead them astray.  They turn inward in terms of trust, and the preaching of the Gospel is neglected for the sake of simply catering to a core group of people who want to meet and congregate and share what they have in common.  The Great Commission becomes more diluted and society is untouched or influenced by the truths they should be sharing.

The culture around us is a testament to the damage that this kind of apostasy and splits in a body that is supposed to be serving as a witness and light to a nation that once called itself of God.  The church at large becomes lukewarm and ineffective.

That said, there are positives that occur when a biblically-oriented people remove themselves from apostasy.  Their faith and values are not diminished or rewritten to suit the agenda of others.  And while it may seem they are in the wilderness and irrelevant – they learn the beauty that comes from truly being free of ‘plantation control’.  They can maneuver and move wherever the Spirit of God directs them to move without approval or direction of a hierarchy of men that often limits what individuals can do unless the ‘leadership’ endorses it.

Over time, I have seen smaller groups network with others and they become a ‘leaderless’ movement as it were, all claiming Christ as their head and of no need for a party of men to tell them what they can or cannot do.  They field their own missionaries, outreach and are having an influence on younger people who were invisible in the larger corporate churches.  I see God’s Hand moving in these groups and I think that they will be the ones Daniel 11:32 describes as doing ‘great exploits’ – despite the fact Christian influence in America and the West in on the wane.

I am not discouraged over the fact that Christianity is largely irrelevant in a hedonist culture that sees them as intolerant or evil.  We were told this would happen in Matthew 24.  I am content to know that it is with a minority that a witness is given before God.

What happens to the Reagan Constitutional Conservative Movement Now?

As with the church – if the Constitutional Conservative movement is splintered and relegated to pockets and corners, having been rejected by the majority party and a nation that no longer reflects the values we believe in, we should in no wise capitulate and give into becoming apostates ourselves.  We have to admit we have no home or place within the Republican party.  It is wholly apostate and corrupted, it has entrenched rules that will forever eschew what you and I believe in.   We risk having our core values watered down and diminished by remaining within it.  We can build a new fellowship and party that better values what we are governed by.

For even if we are irrelevant as far as the political zeitgeist and direction of the country goes in the near future – we are the ones who have yet to do great exploits as a tiny minority that holds to the truth of our foundations and religious heritage.  We are the ones who will provide a witness and a searing conscience to those who willfully discarded what was established for liberty to be maintained in this land.  We are the ones to point the disillusioned to the path and the way back to freedom.

Our political worldview based on the true history of our founding and the documents that established liberty should not change simply because the rest of the nation has embraced Socialism and big government.  We will be the remnant that have the seeds of liberty in our souls – and should they need to be planted in the ashes of consequences, we will be the ones to plant good seed for a hoped-for good crop understanding that though we are limited to planting and watering – it is God that brings forth the increase.

America On The Edge Of Eruption And Chaos

allfalldown

You are living in the midst of the collapse of the American civil society. The Republic is already gone and lost.  What comes next, will astound and horrify everyone who is not given over to strong delusion.

You feel it.  You see it.  You read it.

It’s all beginning to unravel, exactly as designed and intended by those who rule us.  They have knowingly set the myriad  fuses to the powder keg alight and what they now intend, defies your ability to comprehend, even when their plans are hiding in plain sight.

Anger, fear, aggression, intolerance in the name of tolerance, radical zeal for political messiahs, racial strife, gender insanity, cultural calamity, all happening during an ongoing  global economic collapse amidst fundamental transformation of the West that the vast majority of your neighbors and countrymen pretend is not happening, or is not that important to worry about.

The representative Constitutional Republic we were established as, is gone.  Oh some still pay it lip service to it in the halls of power, but just as II Timothy 3 reveals the cultural rot of the last days – so too does America acknowledge the form of a Constitution, but they deny it’s power and application.  The Democrat Party went full Marxist-Communist while the Republican Party fully funded and empowered a Dictatorship of a pen and a phone then went to war against their own constituents in order to have a seat at the table of the new order.

Most Americans have been brainwashed to think we are a democracy, mob rule that can change our foundational underpinnings whenever the mood strikes.  Who needs a First Amendment when society demands safe zones from any speech and biblical religious exercise they hate?  Who needs a Constitution When the Ruling Class and Agitators stoke the masses into demanding rulings, policies and actions be imposed to placate their appetites and stoke their zeal for punishment of those they have been told to hate?

We are openly lectured by a presidential candidate that we should be transformed into a “Socialist Democracy”, of which we already are in all practicality – but many now want to make that official.  Imbecillic morons who leech like parasites off the remaining producers in the country zealously demand the empty promises of Marxists hawking overt Communism and are eager to wage violence to demand it’s implementation in full.

More than half a population that hates the country they live in, demands freebies and entitlements at our expense while abusing the very programs supposedly meant to help them.  They demand more. They insist on more.  Then they insist they be absolved of any responsibility, and others should pay for their delights.   The nation’s economy is already in the early stages of collapse as trillions upon trillions are wasted by dependent slaves like this moron (make sure you see the last 15 seconds after this disgusting display of irresponsibility):

And the rulers demand more people like the above be granted your property and your wealth, because they say it is their right to take your wealth and your stuff because you are the wrong color, the wrong religion and your intolerant bigotry must be met with government-imposed intolerance and punishment.

Eventually and soon – the milk and honey train will come to an abrupt halt as it has in most Socialist utopias like Venezuela.  And just as we saw in Greece and Europe – conflagration and upheaval erupts, violence, bloodshed and the cries for a strong dictator to promise order and a return to a chicken in ever pot and a Smart Phone in every hand ensues.  We are already in this process of collapse, witnessing the complete and catastrophic eruption of rage and revenge that is going to grow more pronounced, more virulent and widespread as the days wane on.

BLM:Blckpanthers

And I have not even mentioned the Caliphate, Jihadist Islam and Iran with nuclear weapons yet.

Monstrous events in such an environment usually trigger the societal powder keg to detonate, and usually the blast is much larger than even the experts suggest it will be.

But if you understand the genocidal game being played by the masterminds, the question of how to eradicate and kill tens of millions of useless eaters that the Ruling Class is convinced will not come along quietly to the new order that fundamental transformation has irrevocably initiated, everything happening suddenly becomes clear.

Then later, in the ruins of misery – the echoes of Bonhoffer and Rand and Satayana will ring in our ears if there is anyone left whose understanding of the world was not limited to TMZ and the Kardashians.

 

“Upon closer observation, it becomes apparent that every strong upsurge of power in the public sphere, be it of a political or a religious nature, infects a large part of humankind with stupidity. … The power of the one needs the stupidity of the other. The process at work here is not that particular human capacities, for instance, the intellect, suddenly atrophy or fail. Instead, it seems that under the overwhelming impact of rising power, humans are deprived of their inner independence and, more or less consciously, give up establishing an autonomous position toward the emerging circumstances. The fact that the stupid person is often stubborn, must not blind us to the fact that he is not independent. In conversation with him, one virtually feels that one is dealing not at all with him as a person, but with slogans, catchwords, and the like that have taken possession of him. He is under a spell, blinded, misused, and abused in his very being. Having thus become a mindless tool, the stupid person will also be capable of any evil and at the same time incapable of seeing that it is evil. This is where the danger of diabolical misuse lurks, for it is this that can once and for all destroy human beings.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Papers from Prison

A conflagration is imminent. What sets it off – is yet to be seen as there are so many lit fuses flaring up, crackling and sputtering their way to the big keg of black powder that this nation has become.

Ruins, ala Rome is a guaranteed future for us all at this point.

Society is reaching critical mass

By Robert Arvay

There is a limit to how much stress can be put on something before it is finally and irreversibly destroyed.  It goes by several different names.  Critical mass, tipping point, and system overload are but a few.  In each case, the term refers to an event that finally breaks the camel’s back (to use yet another term for the same thing).

Society is not merely reaching its critical mass; it is reaching it so swiftly that predictably, there will be an abrupt and catastrophic breakdown of historic proportions, eclipsing even the fall of the Roman Empire.

This is not hyperbole.  In modern times, humanity has witnessed such catastrophes.  The French Revolution with its resultant Reign of Terror was followed in later years by the Communist Revolution in Russia and even later by the rise of fascism in Germany and Japan.  Each of these events unleashed apocalyptic death and destruction.  Nor were they the end of it.

Today, however, the event is taking place in a form both more subtle and more explosive than ever before.  It is not merely the political, economic, and military structures being overturned, but the very core and foundation of humanity itself: the human psyche.

There is no need to list the examples of that.  The litany of social upheavals eroding family, morals, and education in America and Europe is well known to those who follow such things.  Likewise, the accelerating advance of technology has affected us all in its breathtaking speed.  Beyond that, radical Islamist terrorism has become destructive not merely in terms of its death toll, but also in the fact that it has become the hate that dare not mention its name.

And therein is encapsulated the nature of the catastrophe about to engulf us.  We are faced not with an enemy we cannot defeat, but with one we dare not offend.  Almost literally, we have met the enemy, and he is us.

The modern American fascists do not wave swastika banners; they go to court to force ordinary citizens to (for example) participate in same-sex wedding ceremonies by providing services to them, whether bakery or photography.  Merely to quote the Bible can bring about civil, even in some cases criminal penalties.  Students on college campuses are not free to state their political preference if that preference is Donald Trump.  Why?  Because some of their fellow students feel “threatened.”

The backlash has up until recently been silent.  That is changing.  The Sanders and Trump candidacies are merely the rumblings of a volcano preparing to erupt.  People are fed up.

No one can predict exactly what the spark will be that sets off the powder keg.  All we can say with certainty is that there is a powder keg, and there is a lit fuse.

Boom.

Peasants Rouseth A Worm Frometh The Pit!

TrumpDragon

Forsooth! Cometh Dragons whose fierce breath the rabble pray slayeth the Knights ’round the Moat Potomac of thine Kingdome of Beltway

Whilst I nay pledge Trump as my liege lord, the Serfs riseth behind the Breedbate to agauw the Nobles and terror taketh their thought.

Pay ear to thine minstrel who telleth the tale thou fop doodles nay understandeth we afterlings rage at the royal Beltway banners!

 

It Cometh from the Pit:And Hath a Knout

by  Fred Reed

fairykingdom

Once upon a time there was a fairy kingdom that lived inside a place called The Beltway, and was surrounded on all four sides by a land called America. The Beltway was aligned with another kingdom called Manhattan, inhabited by disembodied heads that spoke from the walls of bars, and with with yet another closed kingdom called Hollywood, the abode of half-educated narcissists. These kingdoms were in eternal political syzygy, and spoke not with the people of the surrounding lands, of whom they knew nothing. The following is a chronicle of what befell them, and why.

After years of peace, the Kingdoms were taken greatly aback by the rise of the Trump Monster, their surprise being proof that they knew nothing of the surrounding lands. They knew nothing for good reasons, of which there were two. The first was that they passed their lives with each other and among each other and talking to each other and writing about each other and reading about each other behind the high walls of their kingdoms. In organs like National Review and The Weekly Standard they endlessly wrote stories of the form “A soothsayer in Manhattan replies to what some other sayer of sooths said about yet another’s attack on someone else.”

They had all dwelt in monasteries called Harvard and Princeton, where they learned that they were the wisest of men, and inerrant. They had no idea that they were hated in the strange lands without the walls, which on their maps were drawn as fog with notations such as “Here dwelleth dragons.” They did not know that there were people who agreed not with them. For were they not right about all things?

The other reason for their puzzlement was a powerful spell called “Political Correctness.” This strong magic prevented the outlanders from saying anything that the Three Kingdoms did not want to hear.
Anyone who engaged incantations called “slurs,” which were truthful thoughts about sacred tribes, or who said Inappropriate Things about a certain little country whose only importance was being that little country, was thrown into durance vile. Thus the Three Kingdoms never heard anything they didn’t like, and so believed that almost everyone without the walls loved them. They had scarce an idea what furies were roiling and boiling and stirring under the surface of the Outer Realms.

Now, until the Trump Monster appeared, the America was ruled by a pseudo-democracy of one bicephalous party with two names. The Only Party consisted of blackguards and Quislings and pickpockets bought and paid for by the plutocratic oligarchy of large corporations, AIPAC, and the. very rich. These told the two halves of the One Party what to do. Every four years there was played a great tournament in which candidates of the Two Names of the One Party engaged in the most savage combat imaginable. This was to distract the people outside the walls . Afterwards nothing changed and all went on as before, though the division of the spoils shifted a bit.

And in their ignorance and pride the Three Kingdoms engendered a monster called Trump, and it bit them.

The Only Party had always controlled the villeins because it controlled the choice of pretenders to the throne. A pretender gained the Presidency by buying it, and the rich who provided that money controlled as vassals those who accepted it. The pretenders were as straw and melons sold in a market.

Furthermore, the scribes and oracles of the Kingdoms said aloud only those things that were meet for the surrounding peasantry to hear. The puissant spell of Political Correctness amounted to a societal mute button and prevented the Holy Orders within the Three Kingdoms from noticing what stirred without.

Until the Trump Monster came raging, slouching toward Bethlehem, with which the Kingdoms confused themselves.

And there was afright and desperation and rending of teeth and gnashing of hair for many were the rice bowls threatened.

The darkest of horrors was that the serfs might come to choose the manner of their government. For long years the Bicephalous Party had presided over that most desirable form of democracy in which the people had no power. This laudable state they had maintained by never talking about anything of substance, such as unending wars in remote lands beyond the edges of the maps, or the importation of slaves from curious and unwholesome countries or the manufactures of all things by foreign dwarves.

A great broil ensured. The people saw for the first time a chance to manage their destinies and rose up for the Trump Monster. Inside the Beltway, the Wise and Good–for did they not so denominate themselves?–were greatly astonished. “What manner of wight can this be?” they asked in wonder. They said that the Trump Monster was beguiling fools, the cracked, and those who represented the worst in America. And the scribes and oracles were sore afraid, for most of the outlying populace appeared to belong to these tribes.

One of the Two Names of the One Party, the Democrats, sent forth a dreadful creature called Hillary to fight in single combat with the Trump Monster. Her very visage turned men to stone, it was said. She was held to be of one blood with Boadicea, Jeanne d’Arc, Lucretia Borgia, and Bonnie Parker.

The Three Kingdoms were at one with her, as she was corrupt, mendacious, criminal, and ugly, as well as suffering coughing fits and dizzy spells. Surely, said the scribes and oracles, any monster must fly screaming from her mere presence.

Yet it seemed that the Trump was no common monster. Every time he was beset by the scribes and oracles of the Beltway, he grew stronger, and a sulfurous smoke breathed from his mouth. With drawn swords the Trump Monster and the crumbling ruin yclept Hillary circled each other.

And beyond the parapets and crenellations of the Three Kingdoms the sky grew darker. Inside the Beltway and in Manhattan, the disembodied heads railed and raged, but with every blast the helots jointed the Trump Monster in larger numbers, for they hated the Insiders. In Hollywood the Half-Educated Narcissists said ever stupider things, but these had not their usual effect.

In their pride the Three Kingdoms had engendered Nemesis, and they watched in terror behind the ramparts as the sky grew darker and strange shapes twisted in the looming clouds and the Trump Monster strode ever nearer, breathing fire.

Curious Timing Of Mitt Romney’s Bash Of Trump

RomneyLoser

Mitt Romney’s hate fest this morning bashing Trump got me thinking about why the GOP leadership asked him to do so very publicly.

It’s sickening and hilarious watching the absolute desperation that the leadership of the Republican Party is exhibiting this primary season.  The two top candidates running on their ticket are both “outsiders” and not under the direct control of the corrupt apparatus running the velvet coup in D.C.

While the leadership of the GOP has steadfastly REFUSED to attack Obama, his lawless and unconstitutional actions, the Democrats or their agenda – it’s been an amazing thing to watch all their efforts and rage being brought to bear upon fellow Republicans Trump and Cruz who are not on their leash that threaten their Fascist gravy train.

You certainly did not hear THIS kind of vitriol being leveled against Hillary over her e-mails, or Obama over the IRS scandal did you?

ALSO – ROMNEY NEVER –  EVER – TALKED ABOUT OBAMA OR ANY DEMOCRAT THE WAY HE BASHED TRUMP TODAY.  NEVER.  Not in 2012, and not since his failed run.

It’s become very clear to us ‘little people’ in flyover country that the Uniparty Establishment  despises us and that the GOP leadership looks at us plebes merely as tampons to use and discard once we get them into office.  That we will no longer bow down and take it up main street has earned us their hatred and contempt.

So the Oligarchy has decided to play hard ball with us “children throwing a temper tantrum”.

Which leads me to my question:  why foist the liberal establishment LOSER of the 2012 Presidential election, Mitt Romney into holding a PRESS CONFERENCE to bash Trump after he received Trump’s endorsement 4 years ago?

Does the Establishment really think having the poster-boy of the feckless GOP Ruling Class Leadership give Trump and all his millions of supporters the middle finger going to sway any of them over to supporting Rubio or Kasich?

NO.  They are setting the stage, greasing the skids for what they plan to do should Trump or Cruz “win” the nomination.  

Romney’s bash of Trump this morning is intended to do only one thing: place in the minds of the public, the EXCUSE the Ruling Class will use to either foist their own candidate upon the party at a contested GOP convention (which is why Rubio and Kasich are not going to get out of this race), or why they will throw their support behind Hillary Clinton.

It’s as simple as that.

As my readers know, I have my major issues with Trump – moreso the mentality of the people who see him or any politician as a political savior.

But what is become clear to me is that the Oligarchy in DC is telling us that we the little people will not be allowed to have OUR CHOICE for the White House in power.  They instead will force their candidate upon the people by any means they can conjure.

They are going to TELL US whom they will give us as a weak candidate to lose to Hillary so that the crowning of the next Marxist Dear Leader creates the illusion that our election system has any legitimacy.

And their corrupt Fascist gravy train and growth into a hard tyranny will continue unabated.

It’s 2008 All Over Again

GameThrones2016

The insane messianic zealotry that made Obama a king for the Left has transposed itself to Donald Trump by a people who will eventually embrace a bloodbath

 

This year’s election circus has proven to me beyond any shadow of doubt that freedom and the Constitution are as good as dead in this country.

This nation is hopelessly divided between more than half a population that want a Marxist dictatorship and the rest who now want a populist king that they loft all their hopes for change upon.

Details of plans beyond words?  Forget it. You will be told that a good negotiator does not reveal his hand and operates in secret until a deal is made. Ask for specifics, be told amidst angry vitriol that you are traitor who will be killed when the time comes for payback.

Separation of powers? Screw it. We want a king who will impose reparations or build walls by the power of his charisma and give us free shite while punishing anyone who dares oppose them.

Such a people and such a country are not capable of maintaining liberty in any capacity beyond a strong leader they think will do their bidding to impart revenge on the half of the population they hate.

I am clearly beginning to understand that a majority of the American people want a dictatorship or a monarchy, not a Representative Republic that we already lost in a velvet coup 8 years ago.  They want a king so long as he is THEIR KING.

Sadly, as history teaches, such a people shall have it.

Make no mistake – I have no intention of supporting any of the GOP Establishment’s picks for ruler.  They hate Trump and Cruz with a vehemence and they want a crony who will keep their fascist gravy train running without interruption.  I fully expect them to find a way to throw support to Hillary if shenanigans at the GOP Convention does not seat their puppet for them.

I’m more concerned about the national mentality of a people who see Trump as a political savior and their crowbar for revenge. Obama already set that precedent and it seems to me that Trumpians are eager to pick that up and continue running with it.

I want no part of that – but I will continue to give warning about what The Almighty will give them all over to,notably all of their appetites, and they shall be consumed by it.

Angelo Codevilla who is an amazing intellect and analyst has shared his perspective on this circus passing itself off as an election cycle.  This is the man who coined the title that I use often to describe the Establishment in DC as the “Ruling Class”.  He perfectly illustrated the mindset that exists in DC versus the rest of us in ‘flyover country’ – or as he coined us “the Country Class”.   Codevilla has noticed the same exact thing that I have in terms of warning about what will come from a desperate people who loft all their desires upon a man running for the highest office in the land.  Like me, he sees what is going on as simply 2008 all over again.

Before you have a knee-jerk rejection of the title Codevilla used, you should carefully consider the warnings he gives about where this former Constitutional Republic currently sits in terms of reality, and what a zealous mob seeking retribution will cost what is left of our liberties.

Donald Trump Is The Next Barack Obama

The difference between Donald Trump and Barack Obama amounts only to whatever difference may exist between each emperor’s set of cronies.

The Obama years have brought America to the brink of transformation from constitutional republic into an empire ruled by secret deals promulgated by edicts. Civics classes used to teach: “Congress makes the laws, the president carries them out, judges decide controversies, and we citizens may be penalized only by a jury of our peers.”

 

Nobody believes that anymore, because no part of it has been true for a long time. Barack Obama stopped pretending that it is. During the twentieth century’s second half, both parties and all branches of government made a mockery of the Constitution of 1789. Today’s effective constitution is: “The president can do whatever he wants so long as one-third of the Senate will sustain his vetoes and prevent his conviction upon impeachment.”

Obama has been our first emperor. A Donald Trump presidency, far from reversing the ruling class’s unaccountable hold over American life, would seal it. Because Trump would act as our second emperor, he would render well-nigh impossible our return to republicanism.

 

Donald Trump Is Everything that Has Ruined Us

Today, nearly all the rules under which we live are made, executed, and adjudicated by agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and countless boards and commissions. Congress no longer passes real laws. Instead, it passes broad grants of authority, the substance of the president’s bureaucracy decides in cooperation with interest groups.

 

Trump’s career and fortune have been as beneficiary in the process by which government grants privileges to some and inflicts burdens on others.

Nancy Pelosi’s remark that we would know Obamacare’s contents only after it passed was true, and applicable to nearly all modern legislation. The courts allow this, pretending that bureaucrats sitting with their chosen friends merely fill in details. Some details! Americans have learned that, as they say in DC, if you are not sitting at one of these tables of power, “you’re on the menu.”

 

Trump’s claim to be an enemy of rule-by-inside-deal is counterintuitive. His career and fortune have been as participant and beneficiary in the process by which government grants privileges to some and inflicts burdens on others. Crony capitalism is the air he breathes, the only sea in which he swims, his second nature. His recipe for “fixing” America, he tells us, is to appoint “the best people”—he names some of his fellow crony capitalists—to exercise even more unaccountable power and to do so with “unbelievable speed.” He assures us that, this time, it will be to “make America great again.” Peanuts’ Lucy might reply: “This time, for sure!”

 

Deal-Making Expands Government

In recent years, Obama and the Democratic Party (with the Republican leadership’s constant collusion) have prevented Congress from voting to appropriate funds for individual programs and agencies. They have lumped all government functions into “continuing resolutions” or “omnibus bills.” This has moved the government’s decision-making into back rooms, shielding elected officials from popular scrutiny, relieving them of the responsibility for supporting or opposing what the government does. This has enabled Obama to make whatever deals have pleased him and his Republican cronies.

 

This has moved the government’s decision-making into back rooms, relieving elected officials of responsibility.

Trump touts his own capacity to make good deals. But good for whom? And who is to say what is good? Who or what causes would benefit from continuing government by secret deals? Who or what would lose? Trump’s stated objective is to wield whatever power might be necessary to accomplish whatever objectives upon which he—in consultation with whomever—might choose from time to time. But the difference between Trump and Obama amounts only to whatever difference may exist between each emperor’s set of cronies.

 

By contrast, the U.S. Constitution of 1789, as explained by James Madison, envisages a continuous mutual effort at persuasion among the American people’s many parts, to “refine and enlarge the public views” and to result in ”decisions based on the “cool and deliberate sense of the community.” For two centuries, the government’s main decisions have happened through open congressional proceedings and recorded votes. That’s the republic we used to have.

 

Rule By Will, Not Law

Like Obama, Trump is not about persuading anybody. Both are about firing up their supporters to impose their will on their opponents while insulting them. Throughout history, this style of politics has been the indispensable ingredient for wrecking republics, the “final cause” that transforms free citizens into the subjects of emperors.

 

Both are about firing up their supporters to impose their will on their opponents while insulting them.

This style of politics has grown, along with a ruling class that rejects the notion that no person may rule another without that person’s consent. As I have shown at length elsewhere, America is now ruled by a uniformly educated class of persons that occupies the commanding heights of bureaucracy, of the judiciary, education, the media, and of large corporations, and that wields political power through the Democratic Party. Its control of access to prestige, power, privilege, and wealth exerts a gravitational pull that has made the Republican Party’s elites into its satellites.

This class’s fatal feature is its belief that ordinary Americans are a lesser intellectual and social breed. Its increasing self-absorption, its growing contempt for whoever won’t bow to it, its dependence for votes on sectors of society whose grievances it stokes, have led it to break the most basic rule of republican life: deeming its opposition illegitimate. The ruling class insists on driving down the throats of its opponents the agendas of each its constituencies and on injuring persons who stand in the way. This has spawned a Newtonian reaction, a hunger, among what may be called the “country class” for returning the favor with interest.

 

The Cycle of Revenge Rarely Slows

Ordinary Americans have endured being insulted by the ruling class’s favorite epitaphs—racist, sexist, etc., and, above all, stupid; they have had careers and reputations compromised by speaking the wrong word in front of the wrong person; endured dictates from the highest courts in the land that no means yes (King), that public means private (Kelo), that everyone is entitled to make up one’s meaning of life (Casey), but that whoever thinks marriage is exclusively between men and women is a bigot (Obergefell).

Trying to stop the cycle of political payback with another round of it, while not utterly impossible, is well-nigh beyond human capacity.

No wonder, then, that millions of Americans lose respect for a ruling class that disrespects them, that they identify with whomever promises some kind of turnabout against that class, and that they care less and less for the integrity of institutions that fail to protect them.

 

Trump’s voters expect precisely such turnabout. Within good measure, not only would this right any number of wrongs and restore some balance in our public life, it is also indispensable for impressing upon the ruling class and its constituents that they too have a stake in observing the limits and niceties that are explicit and implicit in our Constitution.

 

But not only do opposing sets of wrongs not make anything right. As I have argued (Sophocles did it a lot better), trying to stop the cycle of political payback with another round of it, while not utterly impossible, is well-nigh beyond human capacity.

Neither Obama nor Trump seem to know or care that cycles of reciprocal resentment, of insults and injuries paid back with ever more interest and ever less concern for consequences, are the natural fuel of revolutions—easy to start and soon impossible to stop. America’s founders, steeped in history as few of our contemporaries are, were acutely aware of how easily factional enmities deliver free peoples into the hands of emperors. America is already advanced in this vicious cycle. The only possible chance of returning it to republicanism lies in not taking the next turn, and in not following one imperial ruler with another.

Now We Know The Reason The GOP Establishment Is “Warming Up” To Trump

TrumpDealer

Trump says he will work with Leftist Democrats, will make ‘great deals’ with them.

One of the reasons why outsiders have been polling well in this cycle is because the electorate is pissed-off and sick and tired of the GOP Party Establishment making ‘deals’ with Obama and the Democrats and handing them their entire agenda to send the country off-the-cliff into Marxist Socialism with wide-open borders to the third world.

Along comes Trump – who talked the talk of someone who would fight back and do the very things our so-called representatives have refused to do: STOP and undo the Leftist/Marxist/Islamist Agenda that Obama and the Democrats have imposed on the country.

Then the Ruling Class and their apparatchiks in the Establishment Media went on a massive blitzkrieg to destroy Trump, doing everything from suggesting he was a criminal to a wannabe Hitler.  It is why it was baffling that these same Establishment types have suddenly done an about-face and publicly said in the last week they can ‘work with Trump’.

Now we know why.

For those of us scratching our heads as to how and why the GOP Party Establishment would suddenly do an about-face and embrace Trump, The Donald goes ahead and lets us all know the actual reason why:

 

There you have it.  He will work with the Democrats, just like McConnell, McCain, Graham, Boehner, Ryan and the rest of the Establishment have said they would do, and did.

In fact Trump said yesterday that the GOP Establishment “Likes me more than nasty guy Ted Cruz”.  How and why is that suddenly a PLUS for a guy who originally fashioned himself as an opponent of the GOP Establishment and won the YUUUGE following he has garnered??

Making America great again?  No.  Trump will do no such thing if the ‘art of the deal’ is what he thinks the Presidency is all about.  Making deals to ‘get along’ is what got us into this mess in the first place Mr. Trump.

‘Working with’ the very people and party that have destroyed the country is exactly what the GOP Establishment has already done.  Why make deals with Leftists and the very inside cabal that his mobs of followers think he is going to defy?  What sense does that make?  Does Trump not understand the fact that the Left NEVER compromises their Agenda, NEVER surrenders any ground and ALWAYS requires our sides’ capitulation for any ‘deal’ to be struck??

Will Trump ‘make deals’ and work with with ISIS, Al Qaeda and Iran for the sake of ‘getting along’?  His recent spate of comments in the last few days is not comforting and raises MAJOR red flags. Apparently, getting a deal and getting along is more important than standing on fundamental principles according to The Donald.

Must be more of those ‘New York Values” he fancies.  You know, the kind that made avowed Communist Bill DeBlasio the Mayor of New York.

I don’t think the desperate mobs of people supporting Trump are listening to what he is actually saying beyond entertainment sloganeering.  Trump said on 60 Minutes, he was going to replace ObamaCare with UNIVERSAL – SINGLE PAYER health care.

Donald Trump said that “Obamacare is a disaster” and that he plans to repeal it and replace it with a government-funded universal healthcare plan.

Government-funded ‘universal healthcare’??????????????

Forget the ‘bone’ he threw about ‘private plans’ and ‘negotiating with different companies’ because a government-funded single payer healthcare system cannot, and will not permit a free-market system competing with the government and the cronies who are going to be making bank in such a system.

No WONDER the Establishment Ruling Class is suddenly embracing Trump!  That proposal is the very Soviet system that ObamaCare was designed to usher-in after it destroyed the health insurance industry.  Trump is simply going to hand Obama, Pelosi and Schumer the gift that the Fabian Socialists have intended to do for 100 years, that even Obama himself couldn’t do right away.

Trump will ‘make a deal’ and hand them what they have wanted as their brass ring in a single swoop.

And not a wrinkle of concern from his supporter base.

Of course Trump knows the mob he leads, and he, himself said – he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and not lose a single supporter. Joke or not, there is truth to that statement.

But what if Trump shoots the very reason why he garnered so much support in the first place?  It remains to be seen whether his supporters are just a seig-heiling mob that want him as a political messiah, or whether or not they actually give a crap about the issues Trump says he was going to “fix”.

Alarmingly, there is a pattern to Trumps statements that should garner concern.  Trump keeps talking about making deals as President, as if the Executive branch exists for the sole purpose of making deals instead of executing the Laws of the Land and upholding the Constitution, which is NOT NEGOTIABLE.  Trump may very well think the Constitution negotiable if getting a ‘deal’ ‘trumps’ standing on the very foundational principles that made America what it once was.

The Donald cannot make America ‘great again’ with a mindset like that.  For a President we need a faithful Administrator not a Monty Hall gameshow host.

 

Trump: I’ll Work With Democrats

Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said if he were president, he would work with  Democrats including House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

…“Well, I think that I’m going to be able to get along with Pelosi. I think I’m going to be able to — I’ve always had a great relationship with Nancy Pelosi, I’ve never had a problem.” Trump said.

…Hey, look, I think I’d be able to get along well with Schumer, Chuck Schumer. I was always very good with Schumer. I was close to Schumer in many ways. And it’s important to get along. It’s wonderful to say you’re a maverick and you’re going to stand up and close up the country, and all other things, but you have to get somebody to go along with you.

GOP Joins Obama To Attack Trump, Cruz, Conservatives

RubberStampGOP

Last Night’s pathetic GOP “Response” to Obama’s Castro-esque SOTU was proof positive that America is ruled by a single Uniparty Statist Politburo that openly wars upon anyone not in their Elitist ‘club’.

Of note: neither Obama or Nikki Haley made mention of the Act of War Iran perpetrated on us yesterday in the capture and humiliation of U.S. Sailors.  We can expect John Kerry to ‘apologize’ and/or ‘thank’ Iran if they are released.

Feckless, appeasement surrender monkeys not only apply to Obama’s Amerika towards Islamists, but applies to the Republican Party itself, that has allied itself with Obama’s agenda.

Best case: The GOP is truly the Stupid Party.  It committed suicide long ago.  Bury the stinking carcass already.  It’s dead Jim.

Actual case: The Republican Party is simply the ‘moderate’ wing of the Socialist/Marxist Democrat totalitarians, and have joined their velvet coup of the country.  The Republican Party has become every bit an enemy of liberty and freedom as Obama and his cabal of Leftist/Communist/Islamist minions are.

We will come to learn that the Republican party needed to be destroyed and rendered irrelevant as the WHIGs that they have become.  They will not permit their party to be reformed by grassroots Conservative Patriotic Americans.  They will invent and perpetrate ways to fortify their ivory towers that enable the GOP to continue to engage in crony Fascism.

Please note, the entire Republican leadership and party loyalists are the people who demand illegal immigration, open borders and are the originators of “Islam is a religion of Peace’ B.S. mantra.  At the same time they have declared war on Conservatives defining us to be ‘a scourge”; ‘Satanic’; ‘Apocalyptic’; ‘xenophobic’ – terms the GOP NEVER uses on Democrats or Obama.

‘Republican’ analyst David (Crease-In-Obama’s-Pants) Brooks said Obama’s speech was triumphant as FDR, and issued an epic rant that Cruz and Trump are Satanic and ‘Apocalyptic’.

The GOP Leadership has repeatedly made it clear that they will not tolerate any ‘outsiders’ from among the ‘country class’ Conservatives they disdain from achieving high office.  Neither will they permit a self-made and self-funded eccentric billionaire that is not beholden to them to be the nominee of their ‘closed’ party.  GOP leadership and loyalists have already stated openly that it will sabotage, destroy and even endorse and vote for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders if Trump or Cruz manage to overcome all the corruption and achieve the nomination of their Party.    The Republican leadership would rather see the nation burned to the ground, run by Communists or overthrown by Islamists and/or Mexicans than see someone like Trump or Cruz become president.

Watch.  They are doing all they can to see to it that Jeb is gifted the nomination.  Even if they have to rig polls in concert with the Leftist mainstream media, create bogus charges to derail their campaigns and if needs be, hijack the convention to remove Trump or Cruz.  The Republican Establishment does this because they hate them and those of us who support Cruz and Trump more than they do the people and ideologies that are hostile to liberty and the Constitution, of which they have already surrendered.

Americans have the entire apparatus of Federal government, the entire praetorian Pravda media, the Republican Party leadership and the Marxist Democrats being used against us as weapons to achieve our subjugation under their rule.  Overcoming all of these agents of our destruction is not going to happen via a single election, even if Trump or Cruz is ever sworn in, but overcoming them all is going to be necessary if we ever want our posterity to breathe any semblance of freedom in their lifetimes.

Nikki Haley uses State of Union response to bash Trump and praise illegals

According to her prepared remarks, Haley said:

During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices,” she will say, suggesting that Trump is an irrational, angry person who dislikes foreigners.

“We must resist that temptation. No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country,” says the speech.

This is code for welcoming illegal aliens.  This is how liberals talk: they claim that illegals haven’t broken any laws if they haven’t broken any additional laws besides entering the country illegally.  Nikki, they aren’t abiding by our laws if they came here legally.  And they certainly aren’t abiding by our traditions if they don’t learn English.  And we don’t dislike “foreigners”; we dislike “foreigners” who are here illegally, a distinction that eludes liberals, and apparently Nikki Haley.

If anyone wanted incontrovertible proof of what I just laid out:

White House heaps praise on Haley after SOTU response 

The GOP is every bit the enemy of We The People that the Democrat Marxist Party is.
