An American Coup D'etat?

This has gotten completely out of control. I never thought I would see our country's politics reduced to the degrading levels of a Banan...

The Lost Minds of the West

Sounds like a title for an H. Rider Haggard novel, eh? If only, alas, it were just a novel of fanciful adventure. It's not. It's a description of a great chunk of the West's political "leadership" and "elite."

If anybody doubts we are in crisis, I refer you to the CNN Climate Change Extravaganza.

For SEVEN HOURS (!) the Dem candidates came forward to prove that they have lost their minds, or, at least, that they assume the voters have. I, of course, did not watch this idiocy for seven hours but would pop in and out. My disgust quota was quickly filled. Let me sum up the doings: the CNN show revealed the left as comprised of totalitarian morons. One after another, these politicos came forward trying to outbid each other in the Stalinist lunacy auction. In the end, we got a Democratic Party leadership doing their best Ayesha ("She who must be obeyed!") impression, committed to abolishing the internal combustion engine, ending fracking, ending offshore drilling, forcing Americans to give up meat, banning plastic straws, condemning "industrial farming," and, the best for last, killing babies of color in foreign lands. You read that last one right. Bernie "Honeymoon in the USSR" Sanders wants the USA to fund a huge abortion scheme to kill unborn babies in South America in the name of fighting "climate change." The brown children must be sacrificed to the Goddess Gaia! I guess he's going for the Margaret Sanger White Supremacist vote, or he's just trying to burnish his credentials as a Socialist, you know, a National Socialist . . .. Don't build a border wall or put babies in cages! No, kill them before they're born! Bumper sticker, anybody?

CNN is clearly working for the re-election of Donald Trump.

Not so long ago, this idiocy about climate change would have been laughed off as fringe stupidity of the maximum kind. Comedians would have had a field day. Not any longer. One of those loons on the CNN stage will become the candidate of the world's oldest political party, uh, candidate for President of the USA, that is, not for city council in San Francisco.

Oh, and by the way, the so-called "science" on this climate change nonsense just ain't there. We have the world's most sophisticated meteorologists can't predict a hurricane's track from one day to the next, but "scientists" can tell us what the world's climate will be in 100 years? Right. I guess that's why both Al Gore and Barack Obama have expensive beachfront properties . . . they KNOW that the predictions of the oceans' impending rise are garbage peddled to the little folk.

Sorry to state that the destructive idiocy is not limited to these shores. I watch with amazement as the British Deep State strikes back at Boris Johnson to prevent him from doing what he was elected to do, i.e., get the UK out of the EU's lethal embrace. The lefties in Britain are completely devoid of any patriotism, of any belief in their amazing country's historically proven ability to triumph. They will do anything to preserve that loathsome elite club known as the EU, even at the expense of their own people. They detest democracy, unless it produces the results they want. Much like their deranged brethren in America, they will do whatever necessary to destroy a political opponent, including destroying the nation's traditions and institutions.

Repulsive beyond words.

  1. At least Bernie and his comrades are consistent with their global zeal for murdering Babies of Color (BOCs) - Planned Parenthood has been donating the proceeds from killing and parting out millions of American minority babies to Democrat politicians and causes for decades. It won't be surprising when Burnie or one his ideological clone contenders suggests that it might be feasible to clog a CO2 emitting volcano in some distant land with the future and near-present progeny of the local population.

    1. Good idea for a bumper sticker:

      "NRA DOESN'T SELL ARMS
      PLANNED PARENTHOOD SELLS ARMS"

      Of course, you'd be shot at, flipped off, car keyed and run off the road by our more tolerant "betters", but...

  2. Good thing (for the Democrats) is that the debate was on CNN. That means almost no-one saw it. But we will undoubtedly see clips from it when the Presidential election rolls around. :)

    As for Boris Johnson -- remember he was chosen by a tiny minority of the UK population. And although the doughty Brexiteers like to ignore it, "Leave" got the positive support of only 37% of UK citizens (versus the 35% who voted "Remain" and the 28% who decided not to vote). Yes, about 17 Million Brits voted "Leave" 3 years ago, but only 6 Million voted for the Brexit Party in the European elections a few months ago. What happened to the missing 11 Million?

    UK politics are a mess because the people are deeply divided. Probably the largest group now is the people who don't care and just want the whole shenanigan to be over.

    After much more good old British perfidy, the UK will eventually get Brexit -- and then everyone will realize that no-one has any plan about what to do next. Democracy is dysfunctional -- the Mother of Parliaments proves it.

    1. You'll drive yourself nuts worrying about the people who don't vote. You can only go by the election/referendum results. "Leave" won by a respectable margin, and the powers-that-be need to respect that result.

    2. indeed they do, but Leftists can't seem to grasp that.

    3. The real problem was that nobody in the UK voted to JOIN the EU.

    4. Mark has it exactly right! The UK's version of democracy has been dysfunctional for a long time -- and, sadly, separation from the EU will not solve that.

      As for that "respectable margin" of Leave victory -- if about 1 in 100 voters had changed his mind, the vote would have gone the other way. Ideally, big irrevocable changes should take a super-majority, or at least 50% +1 of all citizens -- but the situation with the UK was already far from ideal for the reason Mark notes.

      Reality is that the people of the UK were deeply divided and are still deeply divided, and hence they have spent the last 3 years faffing around. The danger is that once they have separated from the EU, they will carry on floundering around since there is apparently no plan on what to do after Brexit.

      If Brexiteers had been smarter, they would have recognized they had a only narrow plurality of their fellow citizens with them, and would have made major efforts to win over an unassailable majority to drive separation forward and lay the groundwork for the post-separation UK. Instead, Brexiteers adopted Barry Obama's triumphalist approach of "We Won". Never ever follow a Barry Obama approach!

    5. Trump,Brexit,Boris,Bolsonaro and many other examples worldwide are symptoms that we are in a new and so far unknown outcome not between the old left and right, but between globalists and nationalists. Which is why all the political lines are becoming blurred and confused.

      What the globalists fail to understand, and refuse in fact to consider, is their their political and social demands at the extreme ends of liberalism that has been degraded into a parody of it's classical self, that is causing the nationalist reaction.

  3. Woo-hoo! I got an idea from this post! I need to get the machinery and whatnot to make bumper stickers. I'd have a portrait of Brooklyn Boynie and his campaign logo at one end, then, in larger letters "on't put babies of color in cages!"; and under it, in slightly smaller ones, "Kill them before they're born!"

    1. Meanwhile, "scientists" in Sweden are suggesting that a return to cannibalism will help to save the environment. Didn't Jonathan Swift write a story about harvesting Irish babies for food? 'Twas satire then, but not today. These people are blooming insane!

    2. Which is WHY you and everybody else should prepare yourselves to take extreme measures against these people when push meets shove.

    3. The book of Proverbs say that the righteous man values the life of his beast, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. I fear our civilization is making a practical demonstration of that every day. But you can't blame the scientists. Back in the 1930's, Josef Schaechter, one of the leading lights of the Vienna Circle, while lamenting the absence of "the Socratic man" to lead the world out of the descending darkness (it was the year of the Anscluss), noted that there is no way to get from the empirical "is" (of the scientists) to the ethical "ought" of the ethicists.

  4. I would swear the media and the democrat candidates do this *just* to troll me.... like I take joy when something obviously correct is stated and the heads of progressives near and far explode....

    Global warming a sociology experiment carried out by none other than Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory through the CIMP process (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project) to establish dominance not over the world we live in, but the scientists who are supposed to be dispassionate investigators.

    With the utter disaster that is the National Ignition Facility's failure to achieve... 'ignition', forays into social sciences and public policy is all that LLNL and many other national laboratories have left.

  5. I agree with the article. Well written.

    I get to the end: "Repulsive Beyond Words."

    It is.

    And thats where we all leave it. Right there. There is no discussion of the next step. Outrage and what exactly is our response?

    Raise my internet fist? Kit up my vocabulary? Sling my syntax? Reload my critical thinking?

    The dim Dems are as socialist/communist/collectivist and totalitarian as Mr Amselem states. At least 100mm killed in the last 120 years under socialism/communism.

    They are here and running for President. The geopolticial organizing structure for corporate globalism is socialism/communism.

    Ending free speech. Take our guns. Killing 9 month live birthed babies in New York. NO US DEEP STATE PROSECUTIONS. Killing Epstein brazenly in front of the entire world. They upped their aggressive game. Anyone, anywhere, anytime. We dont give a fuck on the optics.That was one important step towards genocide here in the US. They tipped their hand for where we're headed.

    Id appreciate it if Mr Amselem would take the next step and dive into the use of force pool in actual defense of the Bill of Rights, against the deep state/socialists/communists/collectivists.

    Otherwise: “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? - A Solzhenitsyn


    Thank You.

    1. Plan Z.

      When they come for you with an unjust charge, you resist with force. Once you're given trumped up charges, the charade is over. You are entering an end of life from which there is no return. And now we have the proof, as it has been done before.

      There is no excuse, and your jailers will not give you respect for surrendering meekly. Might I suggest that giving up your guns is all but the same.

  6. I see that forward-looking Swedish Climate Change enthusiasts have suggested cannibalism as one answer in the never-ending saga of Applied Environmentalism Theory. May I take it to the logical conclusion that all these brown babies/fetuses would be the ideal source of protein? The meat of a fetus could be hawked as a supreme delicacy, like unborn veal. Just close your eyes and picture a fetus/baby turning on the spit of a solar oven and you have the ultimate iteration of Leftist Applied Environmentalism.

    1. No, no, no. Why should the innocent suffer? (Snopes has proven that the left doesn't recognize satire pointed at them - "that's not funny!") You need to point out that vile nasty conservatives are clearly unfit for consumption whereas progressives, marinated in their own self-righteousness will clearly be more to their taste.
