The rapidly deteriorating state of America, and indeed civilization, makes an old man wish more than ever to be a younger man. A much younger man. Because the fight for individual freedoms is taking shape. We have fallen so far and the enemies of freedom are so entrenched that it is certain not just to be a long political struggle, but a physical struggle as well. To heal the body politic, therapeutics are proving inadequate. Surgery may be the only option for defeating the cancer.

Will there be another American Civil War? It has already come to blows. The struggle started down that path with the coldcock shooting of Ashley Babbitt. It was America’s Tiananmen Square moment except no one was there to put the brakes on the tank, and no justice has been served against her killer because he was acting in the service of the police state. The physical war against individual rights has spread to Canada with the ruthless smashing of the trucker protest by Trudeau’s stormtroopers, an action reportedly and no doubt actively encouraged by the Biden Junta. Who needs Vladimir Putin or Xi Jinping when the supposed steward of your democratic republic is a doddering old fool like Joe Biden or shape-shifting sophist like Justin Trudeau?

Vladimir Putin understands one thing: He has watched the new order of the world taking shape and Russia is the odd man out. Although, Russia could have been America’s greatest ally. Perhaps if the West had focused more on supporting Russia’s transition to democracy instead of China’s bastardization of capitalism, Russia would be serving today as both buffer and counterbalance to China’s rising power over the third world. But with China about to take Taiwan and America self-destructing, Putin sees no choice but to empower Russia by going for Europe’s jugular.

The Biden Junta is compromised by corruption and dominated by misanthropes who embrace the new world of technocratic tyranny. Their useful idiots are those who buy into the Green New Deal, or have been scared witless by a faked-up virus damnpanic, or fall into the victimization-mindset of racial politics. The administration is populated by lightweights and airheads, the kind of stiff-necks who Moses found worshipping the golden calf when he came down from the mountain.

The heroic people of Ukraine are these usurpers’ sacrificial lamb. God bless Zelensky and his nation. Requiescat in pace. Except it won’t be peaceful at all. It is now a powder keg, set to blow the European Pax Americana sky high even if somehow the Ukrainians prevail on the ground. Zelensky is a courageous patriot but he miscalculated. He placed his faith in western allies who were no friends at all. He gave Putin all the excuse he needed to mow down civilians by passing out military weapons to ununiformed citizens. A strategic retreat would have been more effective, governing from exile, waiting for the too-little too-late sanctions to have their effect, and averting the humanitarian crisis that is unfolding.

Meanwhile the pundits and politicians of the American right are delusional. Despite all the unexamined evidence of election fraud in 2020, for the most part they continue to pontificate as if the system hasn’t been broken by fraud. As if the Congressional elections will be legitimate. As if the 2024 presidential election will be as well. Indeed, as if there is still a democratic system in place at all. The fact is, if only you have eyes to see, democracy is out the window in America, at least on the federal level. The Nurse Ratcheds of the world have taken control. If they are not exorcised, the Constitution is a meaningless piece of paper.

If you are a fighter, if you are a patriot because you believe in liberty, it is good to be in your physical and mental prime. Stay fit. The fight for independence, whether personal or national, is a good fight to join. Because the bastards behind all this have to be dealt with not just in defense of the Constitution and God’s liberties it guarantees us as individuals, not just for the sake of the human race, but for the survival of your Self and your family.

If you don’t see this already, there is no hope of convincing you here. It will dope-slap you soon enough. The day will come when you realize you’re penned in, hog-tied, confined to a virtual straightjacket by social credit scoring, political correctness, spoon-fed (smart phone) groupthink, and ultimately, a sort of one-world government of technocrats where you’re either in the party a la the CCP, or just part of the static, faceless mob of the proletariat. Your children, too. And their children. They will all be children of the State, not of their own conscience or in short, of God. Forget social mobility. Under the new system, it will be but a pipe dream like the Bill of Rights.

Whether or not you believe the prognosis for this patient is so dire, be like the wise foxhole atheist: pray, just in case. And know that prayer is not just thoughts and words, it is physical a la Pope John Paul II. So you must be fit. And fitness is not just physical fitness, but readiness. As the great James Brown said, “If you stay ready, you ain’t got to get ready.”

So for those who believe what’s coming is the ultimate challenge to the sovereignty of man and even those who don’t but just in case, here are some guidelines for getting ready for the unfolding Anschluss:

Buy, don’t rent. If you can scrape up even a couple thousand dollars, use it to buy an acre of land out somewhere away from the city. Don’t go into debt for it. Make sure you have clear title. Preferably with access to water and off the main roads. The time may well come when buying property is all but impossible and living in the city is a living hell. Those who can live out in the country will be the least and last affected if things come to that.

Bank as little as possible. Live frugally and save as much money as you possibly can. But don’t keep it in the bank. It has already been shown by Canada that financial attacks are the frontline tools of tyranny. Just keep enough money in the bank to pay your bills conveniently. Stash all extra money where it is not easy to steal and convert as much of it as possible to precious metals. Include in your stash the new goldback currency and silver coins for small transactions. Forget crypto currency. If there is a cyber meltdown, crypto will be worthless.

Grow and store food. Considering the supply chain issues alone, it makes good sense to store at least three months of food and other essentials per person in your household; better, six months. Then start growing food. Learn how to store it. If you become dependent for food on those who want to control you, you are done for.

Buy local. Get away from Costco, Kroger, Lowes, and all chains. You will pay more for sourcing your food, furniture, clothing, and household goods from smaller stores but you will be supporting independent business owners and making friends who will be there for you when the big stores seize up, ration, discriminate (i.e. based on “vaccine” status or other P.C. bigotry), or close down altogether.

Shun tech convenience. Your smart phone is a trap. What you say and do on it can and will be used against you if somehow you get crosswise with the authorities. In fact, if things really go south for you, expect incriminating evidence to be planted on your device. So don’t make a habit of sharing files, texting, downloading apps, etc. Do not use the cloud. If you must gamble, do it the right way: with a back-alley bookie. Do not take out subscriptions for audiobooks, movies, anything. Besides being a money-suck, subscriptions give complete access to your habits and relationships to every vendor you sign up with, and their Godfathers.

Hone a skill. Find what you’re good at and learn how to sell it. There will always be a market for ability no matter what system is foisted upon the human race. Being able to support yourself in any economy is crucial to your independence as a sovereign individual.

Join a church. If you are a true individualist, you will especially need the support of a congregation of fellow citizens to help you navigate the turbulent and shifting currents of life. Not to mention, churches provide ground-level opportunities to help other people, not just talk about it. And do not pass up the opportunity to participate in a Bible study group. The wisdom inherent in the Bible has supported mankind through the ages. You are not so special that it cannot strengthen you, too.

Live, laugh, love is a cliché that is printed ad nauseam on cups, towels, and notebooks, but it is an important reminder: God did not give us life as a punishment. Enjoy it. Make friends. Do good for other people. Enjoy nature. Love a dog. Love your family. Take the high road. And do not let the tyrranical bastards get you down. Staying positive, always putting one foot in front of the other, is the surest way to persevere. If having a happy approach to life annoys the cynical, so be it.

And support your local Barney Fife. In fact, if you are inclined to join the armed forces, don’t. Not while they are focused more on sex change and specious racial ideologies and climate change and such tripe. Instead, sign up with your local sheriff. You get to drive fast and pack heat. The thin blue line between order and chaos used to be the police department. But Police chiefs are political appointees and BLM and such have neutralized their effectiveness. These days they are more likely to prioritize mask mandates than property or bodily crime. But sheriffs are still elected by the people of each county and when push comes to shove, the sheriff is the law in his county. Sure, just as with health officials and school boards, there are some bad ones, but that’s the beauty of local elections – they’re legit. You can vote the bastards out if needed, unlike in the state and federal bureaucracies, where bad officials work like little cancer cells to kill the patient and the elections are anything but honest and transparent.

As we’ve all seen fully on display in Ukraine and we’ve already seen starting in D.C., modern life is no safer from state violence than human life ever has been. You cannot retreat into cyberspace. Make sure you and yours are fit and living in the real world so you are ready for whatever comes.

Like hollering down a well

His Aunt Liza-Jane always said telling John-Robert to behave was like hollering down a well.

He was just hell on wheels. Playing with matches, jumping off the roof like Superman, starting cars when he couldn’t reach the pedals. His soft-hearted single mother couldn’t contain him. He credits military school with saving his life. He made an outstanding Marine aviator. He’s now grandfather to a half dozen or more.

If you have adult children these days, you’ve had that “hollering down a well” feeling more than once. They’re Millennials and Zoomers. You’re a Boomer. We Boomers have been a disappointing bunch ourselves. Materialistic. Self-absorbed. Faithless. Soft.

Not all of us, of course, but way too many.

But at least we still had cojones. The bunch we’ve raised is apathetic, depressed, directionless, self-loathing, frightened of their own shadows, and far too suggestible.

They desecrate their beautiful youthful bodies with tattoos, God only knows what their real hair color is, they wear too much makeup, and they’ve got fake boobs left and right. And that’s just the biological males.

They don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. They won’t move out of the basement. They can’t look you in the eye. They drag college out for years and years. They don’t start businesses, not even careers. They don’t buy cars or houses, at least not with their own money. Their noses are in their smart phones constantly.

Not all of them, of course, but way too many.

The well has been poisoned.

It is apparent that the younger generation has been nurtured with tainted water.

How else can you explain the sheep-like acquiescence to shutdowns and quarantines and vaccine and mask mandates from a virus that doesn’t even threaten anybody but the old and infirm? How else can you explain their mute acceptance of a doddering, corrupt old lecher like Joe Biden as President after a harem-scarem election by mail, taking “no evidence” on faith because that’s what Yahoo News tells them? How else can you explain their “white guilt,” antipathy to the police they are only too quick to call when there’s a problem, and their fanatical following of airheads like AOC? How else could a body possibly mix up male and female and call perversion, “civil rights?” How could any self-respecting young man or woman be so daunted by the idea of “adulting” that they seek safe space rather than jumping in with both feet, ready to take their turns at changing the world?

They have been taught by school and society and even by their parents perhaps intentionally, perhaps by omission, that everything considered good before is now bad and vice-versa.

We have reaped what we have sown. Not all of us, but way too many.

Easy Money

Where did this all start? You can consider history and point to the series of assassinations in the sixties as a turning point. Say what you will about the lustful John Kennedy, he loved his country. He risked his life fighting for it, which is far more than most of us today. Say what you want about the lustful Martin Luther King, he stood up and took the flak for speaking the unpopular truth about actual race relations, motivating his black brothers and sisters to claim their rightful pride and shaming whites into finally doing the right thing.

Kennedy’s and King’s reward for their efforts: Death at the end of a bullet. It’s no wonder that we Boomers were more than a little cynical coming out of the sixties.

But their deaths were effect, not cause. More likely the problem can be laid at the feet of the Greatest Generation. They came of age in the Great Depression of the 1930s and the genocide of World War II and then created the greatest economic and cultural juggernaut in the history of humanity in the 1950s. They were hard as steel in building their own lives but far too soft with the Boomers they spawned. They did not want their children to struggle and suffer as they had to do coming up. They took their unbelievable good fortune from investments in the 1990s and gave their Boomer kids cars and houses and country club memberships and kept their grandkids in private schools.

They were enablers. Not all of them, but way too many.

First Kill All the Smart Phones

How do we fix this? Is it fixable? Where does it lead?

In search of answers, let’s note what else has been going on as churches have failed, younger generations foundered, and the country lapsed into malaise.

Consider this. Let’s say you raise a daughter. As she blossoms into an adult brimming with youthful vigor, smart, educated in the best schools you can afford, she positively glows. You launch her into the world. But she falls behind on her car payments. She loses her job. She doesn’t call. When she rarely visits, she looks like hell and eats like she’s not had a meal in months. Most likely, if you manage to get back inside her life a bit, you’re going to find she’s hooked up with the wrong guy – a loser, a user, an abuser, whatever. Get her away from him, and you get your daughter back on the right track.

It is plain as the nose on our faces but we don’t want to admit it because we like the damn things so much: smart phones have been like that bad boyfriend to this generation. They are the Millennial Ouija board. Where they are a toy for us Boomers, they are like LIFE BLOOD to the younger generations that have grown up on them. They have no idea how manipulated and in fact coerced they are by the hypnotic power of the little screens and the syringe-like accuracy of the misinformation the smart phones feed into their veins. Inevitably the first words when one enters a house for the first time are, “What’s the Wi-Fi password?”

The future belongs to the young. They need to get their noses out of their smart phones and get busy setting society back on the right track or it will be bleak indeed.

Not for all of us, but way too many.

The Tunnel of Stupidity

Marshall McLuhan saw this coming a LONG time ago, in the sixties. His message was, “The medium is the message.” Whut? In a nutshell, and before the concept of “singularity” was anything but HAL in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” McLuhan’s insight was that devices – technology – were driving us toward a “one world” life. News was instantaneously communicated worldwide and wiping out the barriers of time and contemplation that allow for individualism. Back then it was just telegraph, then radio, then television. They were not portable. You had to seek them out. But now the media are nonstop in the form of those ubiquitous aforementioned smart phones. They are the medium now. They are the message.

The eloquent economist Thomas Sowell once opined that it takes high IQ to deny the obvious. We have collectively lived in denial for the past many years now as smart phones have taken over our lives like heroin and with equally deadly results, all the while telling ourselves that the whole phenomenon is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

And it’s not just the young people. Cynical propaganda combined with smart phones have led us older folks into the Tunnel of Stupidity as well. To understand this, do a search on Dr. Robert Malone. Find Part I of his interview with the Epoch Times regarding Mass Formation Hypnosis and Part II about vaccine safety especially as it respects children.

And Friend, do it on your PC. And use Duck Duck Go, not Google. Not your “smart” phone. It will be problematic to find the Epoch Times there. Epoch Times presents fair and balanced news but editorially it is squarely against the Chinese Communist Party. Reading it could hurt your social credit score.

Hypnosis is no joke. It is a bona fide clinical therapeutic. Known most widely for helping control addictions, it is even used in extreme cases to allow surgery on those allergic to anesthesia. If you’ve ever watched a hypnotist at work, you know what power hypnosis can have over an individual. Imagine an evil hypnotist with access to the brains of millions of people at a time.

You don’t have to imagine it. If you know what to look for, you can see it in people all around you. The ones standing on street corners with their necks bent so they can see their phone screens. They are wearing masks. There may be a wet spot on their pants.

Mass Formation Hypnosis is arguably exactly what Marshall McLuhan saw coming some fifty years ago, and it is exactly what the real-life “Singularity” is that we’re facing today. This kind of singularity is not the fusion of human and technical thinking. It is groupthink injected directly into the veins of the entire human race as they hold their smart phones. It is in fact the greatest crime against humanity in the history of crimes against humanity. Young and old, high and low, rich and poor, and otherwise sophisticated, capable people are falling victim to it all the same.

The Spectre of Internment of the Unvaccinated

It is one thing to consider mass hypnosis as an intellectual discussion, to hear about idiocracies like California from the relative sanity of a freer state like Tennessee, but it is a gobsmack to encounter it up close and personal.

Just last month, a friend of nearly forty years – let’s call him Woody – declared that he and his wife had decided they would not associate with unvaccinated people. “But, Woody, vaccines don’t stop transmission of the disease.” He did not argue this point. He only replied, “Well, we just want to be around people who are more careful.”

This bigoted remark came from the mouth of an otherwise very smart, accomplished man. And he knows that “careful” people were not the ones who would have treated him if he had ended up in the hospital before the vaccines. Many of those “uncareful” have now lost their jobs because they refuse to take the vaccine. They refuse because they know that they already have natural immunity and they have seen too many patients end up in their care because of the vaccine, not the virus.

Last week it was reported that nearly two-thirds of Democrats polled and a portion even of Republicans believe that the unvaccinated should be forced to stay home. These are the people who have been hypnotized into an attitude that just a few years ago as freedom-loving Americans they would have considered an abomination. That’s an awful lot of Woodys, millions of them, young and old, pulling for discrimination and tyranny. And rushing out to get tested every other day. And wearing masks everywhere they go. And clamoring for their boosters as soon as eligible. And wanting you and me and everyone to be just as neurotic and miserable as they are.

Not all of them, but way too many.

Live Free or Die

We all know these things:

Your smart phone tracks your location. It knows who your friends and family are and it tracks them, too. It listens to you. It pitches products to you both overtly through ads and subtly through search results. It spoon-feeds opinions to you in the same way. It tells you which way to go to get anywhere. And it has an itty bitty screen, so you really can’t see too much on it at any one time. Indeed, all the information in the world is at your fingertips, but it is presented very, very selectively on that itty bitty screen, and before you’ve seen too much, you’re distracted by something else on that screen. Porn. Betting. Tweets. Cat videos. It buffets your attention back and forth just like a swinging pocket watch on a chain.

Get a grip, man! Would you leave your front door unlocked 24/7? Would you allow a live camera in every room of your house to record your every movement and conversation with unknown people watching you? Would you allow uninvited strangers to direct your purchasing decisions, your investment decisions, your entertainment decisions, your HEALTH choices? HELL NO! So why do you let the damn phone do it?

You may say, I don’t “let” the phone do it. The phone is just a tool. Well yes, the phone is just a tool. So is a hypodermic needle. It can deliver life saving antibiotics to you when needed. But it can also deliver life consuming opioids to you when you are addicted. And Friend, you are addicted. Just take the challenge to do without that damn phone for 24 hours. Measure by measure, that phone has you enslaved in exactly the same way that fishing or betting or porn does it: intermittent reinforcement. Look it up. Preferably in a hardbound encyclopedia. Remember those?

“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety,” said wise Benjamin Franklin. You might as easily substitute the word “convenience” for “safety” when talking of smart phones. But in fact if you ask any given person why it’s so important to have their phone constantly at hand, they will tell you it’s a safety issue – so they know where little Suzie is, or so their poor old half-senile momma can get hold of them, or so they can find their way around the city. Bull. We were just as safe – perhaps safer, because nefarious characters couldn’t track us, hack us, or bamboozle us so easily – before the phones came along. The real reason that phone is with you 24/7 is addiction.

There’s good reason the Chinese Communist Party by law requires every person in China to have one except hapless peasants, their permanent underclass. The smart phone is the ultimate weapon of control.

Five Lies You’ll Believe Under Hypnosis

The shots are vaccines. They are not. They do not block the transmission of disease. Why the devil won’t a reporter now ask Biden or Fauci what the justification is for vaccine mandates if the “vaccines” don’t block disease? No one is safer taking the shot except the one who takes it, who is only safer from deadly consequences, not from contracting or passing on the virus.

Masks are effective at stopping transmission of the virus. In surgery where the doctor is wearing a proper mask, yes. In the world at large, no. Mask mandates are acts of total theater. And what damage such social coercion and melodrama are doing to children is only beginning to be studied, yet already the conclusions are such that forcing children to wear masks amounts to child abuse.

Testing is essential. The virus tests are notoriously unreliable. A person can have a negative result, a positive, and another negative all in the same day. Anyway, if someone actually has the virus, by the time they know it they’ve already done all the passing on of it they’re likely to do, just as with the common cold, which is by the way also a Corona virus. Thus quarantines and contact tracing are a waste of time and resources as well.

800,000 Americans have died from the virus. Total B.S. The real number may be as low as 50,000. The CDC is even finally admitting this. Multitudes have been counted who died while testing positive for the virus, but not because of the virus. There are examples galore of deaths by traffic accident or gunshot wound which were attributed to Covid simply because the deceased had a positive test, or was suspected of being positive. There is big money for hospitals in Covid patients. We will never know until a forensic audit of the numbers is done. Don’t hold your breath.

Joe Biden is the duly elected President of the United States. You’ve got to wonder, since they’re pushing these shots even on children who have virtually no threat from the virus and on whose young bodies these untested RNA manipulations are nothing but a massive Tuskegee experiment, what the hell are the health authorities/politicians actually up to? It’s not all about public health. But it is most certainly about ginning up fear again before every election to justify mail-in ballots. Vote counts with mail-in ballots are virtually impossible to audit.

What’s at the Bottom of the Well

No one wants to admit they are slave to a pernicious vice whether alcohol, tobacco, dope, betting, porn, or their pink-encased, latest generation smart phone. But if you are honest with yourself, it’s what takes you right to the bottom of that well ol’ Aunt Liza-Jane was hollering down: the Singularity, the loss of control of your own life and the willing sacrifice of it to benefit others whether it be corporate entities, government tyrants, or HAL.

So long as you are attached to your phone as if by umbilical cord, you are wide open to getting sucked into that Tunnel of Stupidity. Start small. Put it in a drawer an hour at a time. Believe me, Brother, when you are finally free of the addiction, you will breathe better. Then you can use your smart phone, smartly. For taking and making calls when you are not otherwise busy living a real life. You don’t have to go to military school. It’s exercising self-discipline.

Only when John-Robert learned to listen did he get past his downward spiral, and only when we free ourselves from the phones will we all as a society start rising again from the bottom of the well.

Polite, a poser, or a pain in the…

Nashvillians have a well-deserved reputation for hospitality and friendliness, but from the get-go, we’ve shown the world we can lead with our elbows, too. It goes without saying that James Robertson and the other original settlers were no wimps. It’s a wonder how they got here by foot and on flatboats, felled trees, built houses, cleared fields, planted crops, dealt with bitter cold and blistering heat, and survived constant Indian attacks fueled by America’s enemies the French and the British. They didn’t get all that done through use of please and thank you. They got it done because they were tough as hickory wood.

Hence Andrew Jackson’s nickname “Old Hickory.” He came to Tennessee shortly after it was first settled. Jackson’s hospitality at the Hermitage was famous but you did not want to cross him. He won duel after duel with those who he felt impugned his honor. Woke revisionist historians depict him as a war criminal, but you’ve got to look at him as more of an early Rudy Giuliani: Jackson came in and did the dirty work necessary to pave the way for civilization. He was a heck of a president in contentious times, the first populist to win the office, and a hero to the average citizen not just for licking the British in the Battle of New Orleans, but also for fighting the unconstitutional central bank that was set up to favor the rich at the expense of the common man.

And if Donald Trump wants to complain about the media, well buck up, Buttercup. No political figure in American history has had to fight more slander and malice from media pundits than Andrew Jackson. His opponents fastened on a dubious divorce by his beloved wife Rachel from her abusive first husband. The newspaper writers’ withering, mean-spirited, constant harassment of Rachel and Andrew over this were so extreme that it is said literally to have killed her. Jackson went to the White House a widower.

Jackson was just one of many who put Nashville on the map. Montgomery Bell is another. Today Nashvillians know the name for the state park at Dickson and for the elite boys’ school that bears his name. But he wasn’t so honored because he was mild-mannered. While Nashville was growing he was combing the wild countryside of Middle Tennessee for iron ore deposits. He built kilns and furnaces all over, becoming the pre-eminent producer of iron at the time. Visit Narrows of the Harpeth State Park to see yet today Bell’s most amazing technological achievement. There, so early as 1819 no less, with a brilliant black foreman and a cadre of slaves, Bell blasted a 290-foot tunnel through solid rock from one curve of the Harpeth River to the another to power one of his wrought iron foundries. Towns you can visit today like Cumberland Furnace and Vanleer among others are a lasting testament to his achievements.

Rich, brilliant, and a lifelong bachelor, Bell had some elbows, too. At a time when interracial relations were socially acceptable only as slave and master, Bell lived side by side with his slaves and legend has it, had a common law marriage with a slave woman that produced children, descendants of whom can still be found around Bell Town above Kingston Springs. He eventually freed his slaves and paid for those who wanted to return to Africa. Perhaps it is no random coincidence that it was in an A.M.E. church at Kingston Springs that Stokely Carmichael was elected to lead the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). And that school in Nashville? Bell intended that his funds help educate poor boys. Hah!

How about Sam Houston? Just about everyone knows that Sam Houston was president of the Republic of Texas and that the great Texas city is named for him. But did you know that before all that, Sam Houston was elected governor of Tennessee, the youngest person ever to hold that office? Did you know that before that, he was orphaned young and kicked out of the house in East Tennessee by his unsympathetic older brothers, that he was a teacher and founded a school, AND at times he lived among the Indians as an honorary chieftain in Arkansas? That he was a huge man for the time, over six feet tall, and known for walking the streets of Nashville in a magnificent, multicolored full length overcoat? Or that he fell in love with a young girl named Eliza Allen from Gallatin and won her hand in marriage by the prestige he gained as governor?

The marriage didn’t turn out too well. On their first wedded night, Eliza ran screaming from the Governor’s Mansion and refused ever to speak to him – or of him – again. No one knows exactly why. But it was a humiliation from which Houston did not recover quickly. He resigned the governorship, went back to Arkansas to live with his squaw there, and reportedly drank a lot. Who can blame him? The amazing thing is, he eventually showed up in Texas, helped win its independence and set up the Republic, and when it became a state, served as its first governor. Then when the Civil War broke out and Texas voted to join the Confederacy, he said to heck with this, I didn’t work so hard to bring Texas into the Union only to have it leave on my watch, and he resigned the governorship. So Houston is not only the only American ever to serve as governor of two states, but also to resign from both offices. Needless to say, that is a record not likely to be matched.

So no. Early Nashvillians like Jackson, Bell, and Houston were no wimps. And neither was William Walker, the Grey-Eyed Man of Destiny.

William Who?

Hardly remembered now, it can be argued that William Walker was the most accomplished Nashvillian of all time. Ever. Hands down. And the only native Nashvillian we’ve talked about so far. A child prodigy, he graduated from the University of Nashville by age 14. He then earned a medical degree at U. Penn. He studied further in Europe at Edinburgh and at the Sorbonne. Unfortunately he did not learn his trade well enough to save his beloved sickly mother back home in Nashville. Devastated by her death, he moved to New Orleans where he studied law, set out his shingle, gained notoriety as editor of one of the daily papers (a colleague of Walt Whitman), and fell in love with a deaf-mute girl named Ellen Martin. Alas, she died of yellow fever, once again devastating the young Walker. He disappeared for a year, then turned up in San Francisco, beginning a series of adventures too numerous to recount that culminated in his becoming president of Nicaragua.

Yes, president of Nicaragua. His conquest of the nation made him arguably the most famous American alive in the 1850s, regularly on the cover of the New York Times and every other paper that could get an update on him, and the honoree of parades in every major city he visited during his interregnum.

Unfortunately, his position in Nicaragua put him at odds with Cornelius Vanderbilt, who at the time wanted to build a canal across the country for the same purpose as the later Panama Canal. Yes, that Cornelius Vanderbilt, the one for whom Nashville’s largest college is named. Vanderbilt rallied the royalist opposition to Walker and ultimately had him ousted from office. Walker’s reputation ever since has been as an “imperialist,” but the fact is that he was quite popular in Nicaragua as a democracy-minded president, instituting land reform and universal suffrage and setting up a school system. Imagine how the history of Central America might have been different had Walker succeeded in establishing an American-style democracy in Nicaragua? We’ll never know thanks to Cornelius Vanderbilt. Walker was assassinated on a beach in Honduras by royalist forces as he tried to make his way back to Nicaragua. He is buried there. The concurrent outbreak of the Civil War overshadowed his legacy.

Now think about these four Nashvillians – Jackson, Bell, Houston, and Walker, just four men who were super-achievers in Nashville’s first half century. Think of all they overcame and all they accomplished. And think about what we Nashvillians are doing with our own lives today. Can you see any one of these fellows wearing a face diaper? Seeking a safe space? Questioning their “gender?” Living on a government check? Waiting for a WeGo bus to get where they were going???

Not likely.

Great Nashvillians have never been weak-kneed and they’ve never been posers. They were pioneers. They were non-conformists. They were not the type to pick an avatar and load it with what they wished to be. They ventured; gain followed. They were real people who had warts and shortcomings but who went out and made things happen, sometimes winning, sometimes losing, but never, short of death, too lost to pick themselves up and keep on going. You can bet that using their elbows to reach the top of the heap, to many they were just a pain in the ashcan. Most likely, being from Nashville, they were usually a polite pain in the ashcan, but a pain to their detractors nevertheless because they were all as tough as hickory wood.

The essential question for Nashvillians today is, will we belie the hickory wood of our roots for the balsa wood of the post-Covid, twenty –first century American doldrums?

The Incredible Shrinking Free World

The joke going around earlier this year was that we need new conspiracy theories because all the old ones have turned out to be true. The biggest conspiracy theory to go poof is the notion that a small cabal of elitists is working toward one-world government. Because it’s no theory anymore. One-world government is already here.

Fears of one-world government have always been fueled by imaginings about the globalist machinations of the Bilderbergers or the Illuminati or various Marxist/capitalist hybrid zombies from Bill Gates to George Soros. But it’s turned out a little differently from all that.

Socialism and communism are just bait. No serious person expects either one to work in the real world. Their promises feel good because everyone shares everything with everybody, like it’s Thanksgiving every day. The collectivist ideologies are the apple held out to the masses by the elitist snake.

For those who fear failing in the free market – which is just about everybody starting out as adults – socialism/communism seems like a godsend. So the inexperienced – along with the gullible and the lazy and the looters and the moochers – are lured easily by the redistributionist siren song. But as Margaret Thatcher noted, the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money. And as Cervantes pointed out, the free cheese is always in the mousetrap.


What you end up with once that trap snaps shut is the tyranny of a ruling elite dispensing bread and circus to the dependent masses. Just like Caesar. Just like King George. Marie Antoinette. Stalin, Hitler, Mao, and the other great tyrants of history. Their examples on a global scale is what one-world government is really ALL about.

The biggest stumbling block to one-world government has been American exceptionalism. Because before “America,” there was nothing but despotism throughout the world. The elites held all the property, collected all the rents and taxes, controlled the agricultural and industrial distribution networks, and made all the laws. In Europe and Asia the elites were easy to identify as the royals and their courts, and in Africa and throughout the Muslim world as the tribal chieftains.

America came along and upset the royalist apple cart. In America, it wasn’t about equality of outcomes but equality of opportunity. In America, you could start with nothing, make a good business, and “have it all.” There was nothing to hold you back if you applied yourself. This was the system that produced Eli Whitney and Thomas Edison and Henry Ford and Ross Perot and Bill Gates and Ben Carson and Elon Musk… and Donald Trump.

For the parasitic modern American political elites – political animals like the Bush family and the Obama junta – a self-starting self-aggrandizing, self-made wealth creator like Donald Trump was NEVER supposed to capture the seat of all political and bureaucratic power in the Free World by winning the presidency.

God knows, it was bad enough when Ronald Reagan held power for eight years. Reagan led actual reform, real accomplishment, tangible prestige for American exceptionalism again after the debacles of Vietnam, Watergate, and the Iran hostage crisis. Bush, the consummate insider planted as VP to temper Reagan, followed him as president and put a stop to all that, ushering in the Clinton kleptocracy of which Joe Biden is the poster child.

When Trump won coming out of right field in 2016, it was a disaster for the Bush/Clinton/Obaman ethic of leveling American exceptionalism and ushering in the unopposed reign of the Chosen People – the political elite who suck the wealth out of the masses and into their own fleshpot fiefdoms, never to be challenged again. World Wide.

This explains the Biden presidency. It is as-if – if not literally – the One-Worlders put Biden into office specifically for the purpose of leveling America. They didn’t have to conspire to do it. The cynical, amoral, bitter leftist zealots created out of the fat of this land did it for them. The good thing: there may be no need for China to wage war against America. The U.S. is toppling on its own. Without America as a bastion of liberty, Hong Kong was lost. Taiwan will not have a chance. Neither will Israel, Sweden, Hungary, Ukraine, nor any of the other countries of this world in which one can still detect a pulse of independence.

As we head into 2022 and the Promised Land of Congressional elections, the mantra you hear over and over again is that a big red wave will turn the bastards out and sanity will return to government. There’s a big assumption in that way of thinking:

Honest elections.

So long as panic can be ginned up over a new strain of the virus, thus “necessitating” mail-in ballots which neuter the whole notion of voter ID, there will be no honest elections. Without honest elections, there is no America. There’s just one flat world of helpless people and the Marie Antoinettes sucking up the fat of the land from the very top.

If anything has seriously, systemically, been done to ensure that the 2022 and 2024 elections are safe from the corruption that prevailed in 2020, it’s the best kept secret since Who Shot JR. As Juvenal asked in ancient Rome, who will watch the watchers? If there is to be a divorce between red and blue states in the U.S., if our divisions are to level us, the fact that this question is unsettled will be the casus belli. The America-haters on the left are not the majority, nowhere near. Only in dishonest elections can they maintain the illusion of winning.

To tweak Hanlon’s Razor a bit, there’s no need to have a Bilderberg conspiracy when stupidity will do the trick. As long as the great middle buys the leftist tripe that America is racist, that voter ID laws violate civil rights, that a nation without borders is truly a nation, that everyone’s got to have the jab whether it makes epidemiological sense or not, and so on and so forth – the bovine scatology dispensed by government and media today is endless – then we’re doomed to one-world government on the modern Chinese model. If Americans don’t smarten up, stand up, and fight back now, by the time this decade is out the Free World will be very small indeed.

Smaller than any nation. Smaller than a single individual citizen. Smaller even than a mouse.

Freedom’s just another word.

The Epoch Times ran an astute commentary by Roger Kimball last week detailing the corruption of the English language to a leftist agenda. In it Kimball uses the word “free” as an example of the effect of Orwellian Newspeak by the left to purge public consciousness of a word’s original meaning. True freedom threatens the ruling class (“All animals are more equal but some animals are more equal than others,” speaking of Orwell) that wants to impose what they call socialism on the rest of us. Thus “free” only survives in the sense that one may be “free from lice.” The idea of personal freedom is flickering against the prevailing wind of leftist totalitarianism and is threatened with extinction.

Today’s vax-mandate reality provides ample real-world evidence of this. We live in a hyper-materialistic era of smart phones, e-commerce monopolies, and intense consumerism. If you are not online with your smart phone portal at hand (aka the Millennial Ouija Board), you might as well not exist. The concept of freedom has morphed away from that of an autonomous individual with originality, uniqueness, freedom of conscience, freedom of expression, freedom of movement, and the rest of the freedoms summarized best in the Bill of Rights, to one of, simply, the freedom to navigate the material world while being monitored, tracked, and graded every step of the way.

So what if you have to have a Wuhan shot to go to a concert, to get on a plane, to keep your job? You’ve always had to get vaccinated to go to school, right? To enlist in the armed forces, right? To work at the hospital, right? So what’s one more shot? Just one shot and you have to freedom to go wherever you want and do whatever you want. However, if you don’t get the shot, you might as well live on Molokai. So that’s freedom, right?


The “shot” is not even a vaccine as understood for centuries. The CDC even had to change the definition of the word “vaccine” to fit the Wuhan shots. It’s not just one shot anyway, but multiple now with boosters and no end in sight. These shots do not prevent getting the disease nor passing it on to others. They have unknown consequences. News of the dire side effects, even deaths in the thousands, is being suppressed. Addled old Joe Biden who rants about the “unvaccinated” being dangerous to others has not even issued his threatened mandate order, yet corporate giants have lined up like the good fascists they are to force out employees – excuse me, the Newspeak word is “workers” – who won’t take the damn shots. After all, fascism is very good for business. Not so for much small business, but certainly for big business, and size matters, right?


Not in the sense that bigger is better. Bigger business and bigger government doom real personal freedom. “Size matters” when it comes to big business within a fascist system equates directly to the idea that some animals are more equal than others.

In Kris Kristofferson’s “Me and Bobby McGee” the lyrics declare that freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose. It’s a shame we’re getting so close to that point: darkness.

The front lines of the fight against fascism

Remember, fascism is not goose-stepping Nazis. That was just a side effect of 1930s Germany. Fascism is the combining of giant government with giant corporations to stomp out the little guy. Whether you have called yourself a Democrat or a Republican, an independent or a libertarian, if you cannot see the fascist machinations of the Obiden Junta, you’ve got your kopf up your kiester and Mel Brooks’ satire just blows right by you.

Mentally stable folks who have studied the rise of the fascists in Germany have been disgusted by the excesses which came forth, festered, and then exploded into World War II and the Holocaust. But a certain sociopathic segment of the population were actually envious of the Nazis’ amazing growth and the quick work they made of taking an iron grip on Germany, one of the most sophisticated and educated countries of the world at the time. These sociopaths are the miscreants who have taken the levers of power in the U.S. via the Wuhan Virus Damnpanic and the corrupt 2020 election.

Many have speculated if this will lead to a second American Civil War. It is still hard to imagine, thankfully, how the struggle could come to a shooting war. But the ideological battle lines are being drawn. Joe Biden and his junta are determined to flatten American exceptionalism but there is one problem: Americans will have none of that. It has been impossible to squelch the news that even left-leaning polling organizations show that the American public is done with this administration. The growing opposition is coming out now in many different ways as well, but none more clearly than in events in two arenas which have built to a crescendo this week.

The Defensive Line Against Fascism

Stuck in an airport? Can’t get that surgery you need scheduled? Waiting on product? Well, here’s the skinny: These developments, most dramatically demonstrated by this weekend’s cancellation of hundreds of Southwest Airlines flights, are a sign that folks are passive-aggressively fighting back. They are calling in sick. They are slow-walking. They are opting out. They are being fired. The administration’s claim that only 20% of Americans are unvaccinated is b.s. No one knows the real number. But if you fire all of them, it is obvious you can’t operate the country.

There are numerous spineless, weasel-ridden corporations who are trying to do his bidding without his direct order – Vanderbilt Health would be a prime local one – but if Biden ever goes through with his threat to force the shots on all companies with over 100 employees, the court system will immediately be clogged with individuals suing the britches off the their former employers and the feds. Word is that Los Angeles is already backing off the mandate. And if it is so essential, why are certain occupations exempt?

Bring it on, Biden. Defending against forced injections is a front line in the fight against fascism.

The Offensive Line in the Fight Against Fascism

Whoever came up with the viral “F… Joe Biden” chant is genius. If Roger Stone didn’t come up with this, he should’ve. It is the perfect act of civil disobedience. Impossible to stop, succinct and effective. It is an incisive roar of pushback against the usurpers of our republic. It is the most visible, vocal, and effective manifestation of resistance to the tyrants. Each week, it springs up in venue after venue. And the family-friendly “Let’s Go Brandon” chant is a master stroke of subversive chameleonship.

The Bottom Line in the Fight Against Fascism

America is exceptional because the American people are exceptional, whether native or naturalized. They may be pushed the way of Venezuela but they will never capitulate. And by God’s grace they will prevail. The fascist interlopers who currently have sway in the White House and corporate boardrooms will go the way of the goose-steppers they grew up admiring. Auf Wiedersehen.

Two Soldiers

(Please note: Since this post was published, Lt. Col. Scheller has been jailed by the Marines. See Tucker Carlson’s interview with his attorney HERE.)

The contrasting examples of soldiers Stuart Scheller and Mark Milley demonstrate better than any other events since January what America has lost.

When the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan was revealed to the world, Marine Lt. Col. Scheller released a statement on social media calling the military command to account for the deadly and destructive mistakes it was making. In doing so, he put his career in jeopardy and indeed, subsequently he was relieved of his command and had to resign his commission, losing all benefits accrued.

Gen. Mark Milley, on the other hand, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has doubled down publicly not only on the command decisions re Afghanistan, but also has so far not denied his alleged insubordinate actions while serving under President Trump, undermining the American principle of civilian command of the military. If the statements and actions attributed to Milley in Bob Woodward’s new book are true, he is guilty not only of committing treasonous acts, but also of playing an instrumental role in the Biden Junta’s apparent coup d’etat of the legitimately elected president.

Stuart Scheller is a hero. Mark Milley is a chump. Milley knows what bureaucrats and politicians alike know in any Third World government: as long as they support the usurper of democratic power, there will be no accountability, no punishment for illegality, no need for shame. The American republic was set up to make this sort of behavior impossible through the election process, every two years for representatives, every four years for presidents, every six years for senators.

But the Biden Junta believes they will never lose another key election. Why? Because they have rigged the system. If the people can’t vote the rascals out, then the judiciary and the rest of the swamp fall right in line with the wishes of the ruling junta. That is why the Biden Junta could not care less how badly their public opinion falls due to their purposefully incompetent actions whether in energy policy, border security, health care, or defense.

Little more than a year remains until the 2022 mid-term elections. Little has been done by state legislatures to correct the abuses of the 2020 election. If the duly elected officials don’t get busy especially in the key states with the most corruption, we will be right back where we were in 2020 with mail-out, mail-in ballots and manipulated results.

Thus America is an occupied country. Truly patriotic Americans like Stuart Scheller have no place in today’s America. That means you and I don’t either, even the Democrats among us. We have no rights. We have no vote. We have no voice. Get used to it. If you don’t think it’s really that bad, you will soon enough. Because there are precious few Americans today willing to risk their comfortable job, their homes, their personal relationships, and their personal security to stand up for the country we once knew.

Just a few. Like Stuart Scheller.

God bless him.

The Wuhan Virus Damnpanic Redux

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Apparently in this smart-phone age, people struggle to learn that basic life lesson. Civilization has degenerated into a snake pit where specious thinking gets so much play on social media that dumb ideas move around at the speed of light. We’ve already seen this movie. Yet so many are stepping right back into the Damnpanic as if it’s “Groundhog Day.”

Here’s how it ends: In tyranny.

It was understandable last March that everyone went into a hand-washing, crowd-shunning, mask-wearing, toilet paper hoarding frenzy. The news coming out of China and Italy and from cruise ships and Navy carriers was truly frightening. And soon we were bombarded with statistics. The death count was eagerly followed like the ball dropping in Times Square. God help us if we ended up in the hospital on a ventilator.

But for pity’s sake, folks. It was no worse than the seasonal flu. The horrifying statistics have been shown to be wildly inflated. Trump’s vaccines came out as promised, so now the most vulnerable are generally protected. The so-called Delta Variant has already just about played out. It has been nothing compared to the original now that we have identified effective therapeutics. Not to mention – which the “vaccine” pushers never do – a huge portion of the population now has natural immunity.

The scary stories that ICU beds are filling up are specious. Wily doctors give their non-Covid patients a Covid diagnosis to make sure they get into the ICU for whatever ails them, so the beds fill up fast, but not necessarily from the virus. Also, hospitals are short-staffed everywhere because of the vaccine mandates. Health care staff has seen first-hand what happens to people who have adverse reactions to the vaccines and want none of it. They have quit their jobs by the thousands to work at places where they are not pressured to take a jab. So part of the problem is that hospitals reach capacity prematurely because they lack staff, not beds.

Yes, a large number of people have died from this damnable Chinese export, and may they rest in peace. But when the statistics are audited and actual cause of death is calculated using normal standards, it is no more than die in a bad flu season.

Unfortunately, the first pass of the Damnpanic and return to normalcy wasn’t good enough for the petty tyrants (local public health officials, school union reps, and mayors and such) and the big tyrants (the DNC) and those they get to abuse, the little people among us who either by ignorance or fear believe their doomsday gospel and seem to get some sort of thrill out of being victimized. Plus, there are more elections coming up, and all those mail-in ballots sure are convenient for cheating.

So a seventh prong was hidden behind Joe Biden’s big “six prong” virus plan unveiled last week by the doddering old creepy Joe Biden: It is that the “Unvaccinated” should be required to wear shirts with a giant scarlet U on the front. Those who see no need, have no desire, do not think it’s in their best interests – whatever – to take the shots, are now pariahs. They’re the enemy. They are to be shunned, removed from society, neutered with unemployment and loss of privileges all around.

And the establishment elites continue to push the big lie: that getting the vaccine protects other people. They never say directly that the vaccine stops the virus from spreading. Instead they imply it and let you fill the lie in for yourself – for example, in Biden’s “Six Prong” speech, when he said that you can go to the doctor comfortable knowing that you are safe because he’s been vaccinated.

Safe from what? Losing your job, maybe. And if you are “vaccinated” then what do you have to fear anyway? Tennessee Governor Bill Lee was criticized last week for not wearing a mask while meeting with some children. His defense was that he is vaccinated. Does he actually believe that the shots make him less of a virus carrier or is he in on the lie, too? And the “out” from the vaccine mandates of having a recent negative test is one more way the lie is perpetuated since you can have the virus whether you are vaccinated or not!

The fact is, the so-called vaccines DO NOT stop, or even inhibit, the spread of the virus any more than the flimsy masks do. There is even a recent study out of Vietnam which indicates that people who have been “vaccinated” actually carry more of the virus in their nasal passages than the unvaccinated, suggesting that they are greater spreaders of the virus. And look at Israel, one of the most highly “vaccinated’ countries in the world yet they are having as much trouble as anybody. Sweden, on the other hand, which has not succumbed to the Damnpanic and has maintained a free and open society, announced last week that they are dropping what light restrictions they had.

The tomfoolery of forcing teachers and kids into mask wearing, quarantines, contact tracing, and such is just that – tomfoolery. The melodramatic parents who show up at school board meetings decrying the danger their kids are faced with if everybody shows their faces are nothing but drama queens. And of course, the vaccine mandate Biden foisted on private companies is not just unconstitutional, but is an obvious attempt to change the subject from his complete botch in Afghanistan.

Folks, really now. Stop acting like the guy in the control room in “Airplane.” Bad decisions are made from fear. Man up. Woman up. The rest of you, don’t say nothin’. *

The antidote to the Damnpanic is simple: Live! Laugh! breathe!

In fact, you can chant this popular phrase now sweeping the nation as your first free-breathing exercise:

“Fool Joe Biden! Fool Joe Biden! Fool Joe Biden!”

Now, don’t you feel better already?

Will it be the South that saves the Union this time?

In the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln’s primary objective was to preserve the Union, not to free the slaves. As speculation grows that the current polarization of the American public will lead to some sort of civil war again, it does not seem likely that a blue state hero along the lines of Lincoln will save the day. It is more likely to be the citizens of the states that flew the Stars and Bars and their ideological soulmates throughout the rest of the country who will save the Union this time around.

The abolition of slavery, of course, was the saving grace of the Civil War. Slavery was America’s Original Sin, the one issue resident in the Constitution that was like an earthquake about to happen. To Lincoln’s credit, although late to the abolitionist cause, he came to realize that it was the one goal worthy enough of shedding so much blood among American citizens. Too bad slavery was stamped out only in America. The Uyghurs in Red China, females in Joe Biden’s Taliban Afghanistan, and the oppressed in large swaths of Africa among others still face the yoke of slavery.

Despite many Democrats’ bitter opposition, conservatives joined forces with forward thinking liberals to pass the Civil Rights Act in the 1960s which finally gave full force to the notion that “all men are created equal” enshrined in the Constitution. Jim Crow laws bit the dust. Where natural integration among the races lagged, forced integration was imposed, focusing mainly on the South, the region most densely populated with blacks.

Today, nowhere in the country is there an easier relationship among the races than the South, especially once you get outside the cities. Southern cities are mostly blue while the suburban and urban areas are thoroughly red. Curiously, it is in these red areas, presumed by stereotype to be the most racist areas, that the races live together in the greatest harmony. It is not uncommon at all to see mixed-race couples, children, churches, and social events. Go to the cities, however… and neighborhoods are only integrated on the edges, the schools are heavily minority, and mixed race couples are rare as hen’s teeth. Racial tension is as bad in southern cities as in Los Angeles. As bad as in New York. As bad as in Chicago.

It’s a shame, but the blue states and blue cities have lagged behind in social progress. In killing slavery, Lincoln inadvertently set the country on a track toward a tyrannical and overreaching central government. The leftward lurch of the Obama and Biden regimes have have served as a wake-up call to Americans who for too long have taken their civil rights for granted.

That’s why you’re seeing laws come out of states like Florida, Texas, Georgia, and Tennessee that lead the nation in stamping out abortion, the eugenicist scourge that disproportionately kills black babies. That ensure that every citizen’s vote counts – and counts only once. That strengthen the rights to free speech and private property and personal protection and health choices and all those things that tyranny undermines. And that protect faith in God, the grantor of all individual rights.

Yes, it seems if the Union is to be preserved, it will be the South that saves the day. It gives new meaning to the notion that the South will rise again. It will rise to the occasion, and it will succeed, because even in California and New York and other red states, people still want to have control of their own lives. Such people are the ideological soul-mates of the good people of the South, and though mainly a silent majority up until now, any good seismologist can feel the rumble of a coming push-back of earthquake proportions.

Not this president and not these generals.

In whatever history is written in the future, the crowning achievement for which Joe Biden will be remembered is that he freed Afghanistan from America, ironically in the midst of securing America as an occupied country. Like Caesar’s leading Rome from the greatest republic known to human civilization up to that time to a monarchy, Biden in half a year has transformed America from the greatest republic of the modern era to a Third World dictatorship.

Except… Joe Biden himself could not have done this because he is just a few brain cells away from being a complete imbecile. Hillary Clinton would have been the imbecile in office one term earlier if in their hubris the Left had not failed to cheat the 2016 election. Instead Trump took it, fair and square. And once the American people saw what he accomplished in just one term with every pillar of the Deep State stacked against him, they overwhelmingly reelected him in 2020.

But in 2020 the junta left nothing to chance, certainly not real vote counting, and greatly aided by the Wuhan virus, they twisted all the knobs and pulled all the levers of crooked politics to usher addled old Joe Biden into the presidency with perhaps the only woman in the world despised more than Hillary Clinton as his VP. Neither of these vapid characters is capable of gaining or even treading water in office on their own.

So America is now ruled by a commissariat in Soviet terminology, or in the Third World, what is commonly called a junta, a ruling committee that replaces God as the grantor of liberty and instead dispenses whatever freedoms, whatever success, whatever needs the citizens may have – if they see fit.

Who makes up the Biden Junta? The evidence is now overwhelming. The intentionally disastrous exit from Afghanistan is covered in Barack Obama’s fingerprints.

Just travel back in time a bit. In 2009, Obama was fresh in office and the Alabama Maersk, a freight ship, was taken over by Somali pirates. Eventually they took the captain hostage and fled for the African coast in a lifeboat. The Navy tracked them down and had a clear shot, but the snipers were told by their superiors to stand down. Presumably this order came from Obama himself. But the story goes that the sailors feigned radio interference to proceed. No spoiler here – you can see what happened yourself, with only vague, veiled reference to Obama’s orders, in the excellent Tom Hanks movie, Captain Phillips.

Next up was the Arab spring where Obama encouraged the overthrow of multiple despots throughout north Africa and the Middle East. He did it supposedly in the name of democracy but was he surprised that the power vacuums created were filled by Islamists? Not on your life. But all at the cost of thousands of lives, civil wars, and the creation of ISIS. All of which led to a fiasco in Benghazi, Libya, eerily foretelling what we just watched happen in Afghanistan. We had forces in place to save Americans caught in the whirlwind of a terrorist takeover yet hour after hour, the order would not come down to save them. You can see all this, again with Obama’s role vague and veiled, in another excellent movie, 13 Hours.

Obama’s chief advisor Susan Rice was instrumental in all these episodes which by any faithful American, would be seen as debacles – or in the Somali incident, a near miss. But Obama and Rice and others from his administration who make up the Biden Junta, the real power behind the throne, are high-fiving each other over America’s humiliation in Afghanistan. And loving that Biden gets the blame for it while they pull the strings.

When he very first took office, Obama had the bust of Winston Churchill removed from the Oval Office. Churchill had led the saving of the British army trapped at Dunkirk, prelude to his leading the charge to save Western Civilization from fascism and communism. To a radical like Obama, however, Churchill was no hero but instead a scourge, a symbol of the white colonialism that repressed him so horribly that he was elected president of the United States, fair and square. Such is the twisted ideology of the Left.

Today’s America, thanks to Obama and his co-conspirators, is in worse shape to survive the challenges of its occupation by usurpers of freedom than Britain was to take on Nazi Germany. Even the military brass is dominated by feckless cowards as demonstrated so shockingly in the past few days in Afghanistan. We are trapped at Dunkirk and we need a Churchill. We had one in Trump. History will remember Trump as the last legitimate President of the Republic. Rome never regained its republic and one wonders, who will lead us back to ours?
