COVID. How many people, if any, have been saved from getting Covid by the enforced “vaccinations” and mask-wearing? It is impossible to know. How many people have caught Covid despite the “vaccinations”? We will not be allowed to know. How many Covid patients died because of mistaken treatments and government banning of known remedies? Can we know that? How many millions of people will have long-term health problems from injections of government poison?
Washington and Jefferson both solemnly warned of the dangerous destructiveness for Americans of involvement with foreign powers and their conflicts. Our Founders thought that our example might inspire other people in their quest for liberty and self-government. They could never have dreamed of an American state with the fatuous goal of “global democracy.”
The American Deep State now has a military presence in more than 100 foreign places. It is engaged in promoting “democracy” among foreign peoples---whether they want it or not. Curiously, for the U.S. “democracy” means having the leaders the U.S. selects rather than the ones they vote for. And it involves murdering innocent people halfway around the globe with drones and sending American women into danger. And heavily subsidising one side in two current foreign wars. And collaborating with corrupt foreign billionaires in “colour revolutions.”
In the present Middle East conflict we now have the two different sides demonstrating against each other on our soil. Nobody has noticed what this really signifies: the American population now has so many large foreign elements that they bring their conflicts to our streets.
At the same time, the silly bureaucrats (never been in harm’s way) who control the American military hold American history and all genuine American military tradition in contempt. They are trying to destroy it. The Confederacy and its noble traditions are its first target. But these people feel nothing for the heroic sacrifice of Americans in World War II. For them, such people are just “deplorables” used up in a good cause.
And aren’t you proud that among our absurdly too-numerous admirals is a transgender in high heels? Sadly, he does not make a very attractive woman. It would be interesting to see he/she/it commanding warships against the Chinese, Russians, or Persians.

Years ago, wise scientists established that the optimum carrying capacity for the U.S. was a 200,000,000 population. The population is now 380,000,000, the increase almost entirely due to immigration. The larger population is certain to bring a lower standard of living. It is already happening.
Republicans are doing what they always do. Reverting to their old mode of empty respectability. I am receiving every other day expensive colour flyers telling me that Trump can’t win the Presidential election and a vote for him will be a certain guarantee for Biden’s re-election.
“We need a new leader.” They say zero about who would be a better candidate or what his platform would be.
It is just like Jeb Bush’s advertising in 2016. We were told that he was a tough man that would solve our problems. Nothing about how he was to do this. Just trust the candidate of the respectable party. This is not politics---it is simply calculated marketing.
The Republican leadership has not caught on that the grassroots has changed. Or maybe they know it but still think their old trick will work another time and keep them in power and profit. They neither know nor care about what might really be done to save the country. They can only spout pre-fabricated platitudes and ignore every real problem that besets our ailing society.
Think about how strange (and revealing) this is. We have a party leadership whose only platform is tearing down their most popular leader.
The election of the new Speaker of the House is evidence of the same thing. This fellow said at the time it happened that George Floyd had been murdered. He had seen it on television. What more evidence is needed that he is a shallow, opportunistic man, like most Republican Congresspersons. He was simply saying what the party marketers, anxious to get on the popular side of the Floyd incident, told him to say.
Even worse, this fellow seems to belong to one of the more ignorant branches of evangelism, which means he has no knowledge of history and no respect for the Constitution or American tradition.
Contrary to Lispy Graham, I am not aware of having any brothers and sisters in Israel.
RIC. Russia, Iran, China. Three countries that our vain and shallow rulers are provoking and the media are working to turn us against - not too hard because Americans in general know nearly nothing about the rest of the world and the little that they know is wrong.
All three of these countries have been developing well economically at a rate far greater than the U.S., despite American sanctions and sabotage.
All of them have lifted a great part of their population out of traditional poverty into middle-class status. Generally, their people are satisfied with their regimes and their leaders. Two of them have militaries that honest experts say that the U.S. might not be able to go up against. They all know that American leadership is decadent and weak.
Compare that to the way we are now.
