Joe Biden: To Boldly Go Where No Marxist Has Gone Before

As the saying goes: “History doesn’t repeat, but it rhymes.”  It’s a popular phrase, because it rings true. 

But couldn’t a similar also apply regarding science fiction?  Something along the lines of: “Science fiction’s past predictions don’t repeat in the present, but often times the present rhymes with those predictions.”  More on that in a moment.

But first, consider a tumultuous year in America:  Race riots in cities across the land.  Young people in the streets, violently seeking to replace the old order with a new, Marxist one.  A Presidential election year – one with a media-despised Republican candidate, and a generationally divided Democrat Party running an old war horse (of declining health) as its nominee.

2020?  Very much so.  But is also describes 1968. Now let’s review some of the “rhymes.”

1968: Race riots in multiple cities? Check.  Young people pursuing a Marxist revolution? Check – SDS and its budding offshoot, the Weather Underground. A media despised Republican candidate?  Check – Richard Nixon.  A generationally divided Democrat Party? Check – the “youth” were rioting outside the Democrat Convention in Chicago. (Four years later they became the McGovern wing inside the Democrat convention.  Later still many of them became college professors, spawning the likes of today’s “Squad” and BLM and Antifa. In other words, the 1960’s revolutionaries now control the Progressive movement, the media, academia and the Democrat Party).  An old warhorse with declining health as the Democrat nominee? Check – Hubert Humphrey.

2020: Race riots in multiple cities? Check – under the auspices of Marxist front groups called “Black Lives Matter” and “Antifa.”  Young people pursuing a Marxist revolution? Check – Antifa, etc. A media-despised Republican candidate?  Check – Donald Trump.  A generationally divided Democrat Party? Check – the “Bernie” / “Squad” and Silicon Valley faction versus the Pelosi – Schumer – Wall Street establishment of the Democrat Party (or should we say, former establishment of the Democrat Party)?  An old warhorse of declining health as the Democrat nominee? Check – Joe Biden.

1968 also witnessed the premier of a Star Trek episode titled Patterns of Force.  We won’t here recount the entire storyline (which you can peruse at your leisure at the link above).  For now, ponder “doesn’t repeat, but rhymes” as you watch this video montage from it (4:27):

Who is John Gill?

The Revolution Is Now Underway – But Not By Who You Think!

In this piece we will first look at the retirement of “economics” (economic class) as the stated mission of Marxists, and economics replacement by an unstated subterfuge – so-called identity politics.

Then we will examine how the so-called social justice warriors (SJW’s) are useful idiot pawns, unwittingly advancing a larger, consummately evil agenda; ironically helping to install the very command and control by a mega-wealthy elite that they claim to despise.  The progenitors of that agenda mostly work off of the radar, for now.  Behind the scenes they are funding the SJW’s, thus enabling them to prepare the public battlespace, all the while setting up for a big coming-out party in January 2021.  More on that below.

IDENTITY POLITICS a/k/a PROGRESSIVE APARTHEID

For years now we’ve heard the term identity politics and how the Progressives-Democrats are using it to cobble-together an electoral majority (we’re all now in forced familiarity with the major categories of “identity” – race; gender; the constantly expanding list of LGBT categories). 

In a country founded upon the principle that “all men are created equal, endowed by our Creator,” identity politics as pursued by the Progressives–Democrats is unreconcilable with our founding.  Indeed, we could justly call it subversive.

Henceforth, we will refer to their identity politics as Progressive Apartheid – for it is Balkanizing the country, and doing so by political design.  It does this by selecting certain demographic characteristics (the “identity”), and then conditioning members of the targeted identities to see the world through a manufactured lens.  Once that is achieved, they will have been successfully manipulated to a degree that they will act (e.g., vote) in the intended manner.

After the fall of the Soviet Union, classic economic-based Marxism (“revolution by the proletariat” and such) went out of style: Soviet gulags, Cambodian killing fields and majority poverty (i.e., except for Party officials and other nomenklatura) do not a successful marketing campaign make, not when your goal is to go global.  But the evil force did not disappear.  Instead, Marxism rebranded into so-called social justice (which now emboldened, is increasingly revealing its true nature with the public emergence of Democratic Socialists). Progressive Apartheid is the centerpiece of so-called social justice.

Kamala Harris: “A Hillary of Color”

Cross-posted with trevorloudon.com

Kamala Harris and the “’Me Too’ Movement” Present Existential Threats to Each Other

By the title we refer not to their shared, shall we say, elevated b-word quotient. (However fittingly it may apply, the media is under strict orders to avoid such characterizations, or even any hard questioning don’t you know – even as referring to Donald Trump as a “Fascist” or “Nazi” is well within the media mainstream. Other than with select intellectually honest women, the irony is lost on the purveyors of “girl power.”)  

Nor do we refer to their shared far Left ideologies. (Hillary being an acolyte of Saul Alinksy and his Rules for Radicals; Harris’ record embracing loony lefty policy positions including, but not limited to the “Green New Deal” and free healthcare for illegal aliens.)

No, we refer here to a shared “Me Too” problem.

Back in the days of semen-stained blue dresses, documented serial adultery and credible rape allegations against “Bill,” there was a commonly held belief that Hillary Rodham Clinton must have remained married to the cad out of her personal ambition – political and otherwise.  While we can never know her true motivations, this still seems the most logical and plausible explanation.

It is indisputable that Hillary rode Bill’s coattails into nearly becoming the first female President, and to massive wealth (through legally and ethically questionable means of accumulation).

Yet at the same time, Hillary Rodham Clinton was anointed “feminist” icon – a career-holding, accomplished woman – one who didn’t “need” Bill in order to live a very comfortable lifestyle.  She declared that she was no Tammy Wynette “standing by her man.” And no, Hillary was never at risk of just scraping by as “working poor” in one of those trailer parks their campaign manager James Carville demeaned while smearing Paula Jones.

So, a spousal variant of “sleeping your way to the top” credibly applies here.

This Mask-querade

Those of us above a certain age will recall singer and songwriter Leon Russell.  He wrote a song titled This Masquerade, which enjoyed some chart success, and later achieved monster success when recorded by George Benson.  That was all back in the 1970’s.

It occurred to this writer that if the lyrics were updated to reflect current events, it might enjoy even wider success – perhaps (shall we say) “going viral” to “pandemic” levels.

So without further adieu, please peruse the “2020 Remix” of the lyrics to This Masquerade – now retitled This Maskquerade:

Are we really happy here
With this Fauci lonely game we play
Looking for hydroxychloroquine words to take sing

Searching but not finding
Understanding Truthfulness anywhere
We’re lost in a mask maskquerade

Both afraid to say we’re just too far away
Socially distanced from being close together from the start
We tried to talk it over but the words masks got in the way
We’re lost inside this Fauci lonely game we play

Thoughts Rules of lock-downs weeping disappear
Everytime I see BLM signs your eyes
No matter how hard I try

To understand the reasons
That we carry on this way
We’re lost in a maskquerade

Democrats Are Preparing the (Coup) Battlespace

Cross-posted with trevorloudon.com

Going back as far as Sun Tzu’s The Art of War – circa 500 B.C. – military and political strategists have recognized the value of intelligence and propaganda in preparing for battle – and indispensable for that, preparing the field on which the battle will take place in order to maximize the odds of victory.

The “field of battle,” in turn, is not solely be what we now call “kinetic,” involving the use of weapons on physical terrain.  Before, during and after a kinetic – and perhaps in lieu of kinetic conflict – the field of battle (or “battlespace” in the current lexicon) can involve the “hearts and minds” of an adversary population, and can even encompass an entire culture and its history (e.g., Cultural Marxism).

After all, if one can convince the adversary and its forces and people that “resistance is futile” – or even deserved (e.g., “systemic racism”) – one can win the war. Possibly without having to resort to kinetic measures at all, or just relatively minimal ones (e.g., Antifa).

We already know that the Deep State and its Democrat Party minions have attempted multiple coups in order to defeat President Donald Trump; first by preventing his election, and then attempting to expel him: Obamagate a/k/a Russiagate, followed by the impeachment Schiff-show.

Thus far their treasonous actions have been blessedly unsuccessful; the point is that it would be naïve to assume that such conspirators would not also work at a form of coup to prevent his reelection.

Prairie Fires and Progressive Liars

Cross-posted with trevorloudon.com

Preface: It is strongly recommended that you click-through to the links, as doing so will provide invaluable context.

This month marks the 46th anniversary of The Weather Underground’s issuance of its manifesto for a Marxist revolution, Prairie Fire – The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism (July 1974). 

This month also marks the 244th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence — the source document of our founding (July 4, 1776 – now celebrated as Independence Day).

The aspirations underling the two documents are now locked in existential battle, one in which there can be no compromise – only one of those visions for America can and will prevail.  Which will it be?

One might be inclined dismiss Prairie Fire as an obscure footnote in history.  But as we’ll see, it never went away, and is being executed “as we speak.” Its authors and allies followed Saul Alinsky’s advice: instead of setting bombs and marching in the streets, they burrowed into the American system in order to erode it from within, and so set the stage for revolution through subterfuge and cultural sabotage. 

They’ve largely succeeded; they now feel confident enough to reemerge, albeit under cover of “social justice” and “sustainability” and “Black Lives Matter” and such.  The Left fully intends to consummate its revolutionary designs for America, and upon Americans.

This is not a drill.  These comrades of the Left – the Democrats, the Democrat Socialists, “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) and Antifa – Progressives all – are in the process of executing a Marxist-Collectivist revolution.  They are counting on the American public focusing on the above-named slogans and events occurring under those banners, and in doing so as to not realizing what’s actually taking place.

Useful Idiots, Inc.

“Today’s ‘woke’ corporate executives – along with academics and media personalities and many Democrat officeholders – are incurious and unquestioning lemmings following big lies over a cliff, after which they’re destined to experience a hard-landing into totalitarianism.  For many, if not most, that will prove fatal.”

Cross-posted with trevorloudon.com

Corporations – with furloughed employees from sea-to-shining-sea – are falling all over themselves to massively expand their woke budgets and throw money at “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) and similar “social justice” organizations. 

And massively means MASSIVELY: $565 million as of June 11, 2020, according to one report.  But as we’ll see, this money is not going toward addressing “systemic racism,” nor “inequality.”

But first, just imagine what all that money could accomplish if invested toward addressing the root causes, in a spirit of Black lives mattering, instead of hollow symbolism and racial jingoism of BLM.

Such as: monetarily supporting pro-life groups, that by definition oppose Planned Parenthood – which probably snuffs-out more Black lives in the average month than there have been police shootings since the founding of this country (including justified and non-justified police shootings).  Abortion is the leading root cause of premature death among Blacks.

Such as: monetarily organizations promoting the restoration of the nuclear family, including faith-based institutions, since illegitimacy has become rampant in the Black community, and is one of – if not the – single greatest root cause of future poverty.

Such as: monetarily supporting organizations providing vouchers or scholarships to private schools for Black youth – so that they can access to quality education that will help position them for future prosperity, instead of being trapped in the public education system. Lack of access to high quality education is a root cause of continued poverty among Blacks. (See the documentary “Waiting for Superman” for a heart-wrenching depiction of Black mothers desperately seeking better educational opportunities for their children.)

It’s not genuine concern for Black lives mattering that’s driving the dollars from the woke corporations, but cynical racial virtue signaling – merely a variation of a traditional PR or marketing campaigns intended to burnish the image of the corporation.

Progressives Seeking Refugee Status in Red States (And Some Ideas for Repelling Them)

Cross-posted with trevor loudon.com

A humanitarian crisis is brewing in the “blue states” of America, and in particular their Progressive urban enclaves. Suburbanite sneering, multi-unit “sustainable” housing’d, Second Amendment suppressed-zone Progressives are experiencing an unexpected form of “climate change.”

That is, their hipster utopias are suddenly deadly threat environments: between their “take the ‘C’ train” subways (“next stop, Covid Central Station”), their “we dare not criticize” Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters, and about-to-be defunded if not eliminated police departments, Democrat cities are rapidly devolving back to the dystopian urban environments portrayed in 1970’s movies.

Likely even worse in many Democrat controlled areas; such as Minneapolis seriously (as of this writing) working toward disbanding its police department.  That’ll work out well.  Welcome to Mogadishu, Minnesota.

As good Darwinists, the Progressives in those environs are realizing that, to survive as a species, they must either adapt to their new environment, or migrate to one that’s more hospitable.

We’re Being Played: BLM “Good Cop” vs. ANTIFA “Bad Cop”

Cross-posted with trevor loudon.com

One need not be a cynic to observe that media-propelled street demonstrations over the killing of a Black occur, with suspicious correlation, during the months preceding elections: Trayvon Martin in 2012; Michael Brown (Ferguson, MO and Oakland, CA) in 2014; Sylville Smith (Milwaukee) and Keith Lamont Scott (Charlotte) in 2016. And now in 2020, across the nation after the death (murder?) of George Floyd.

This is not to say that outrage over the death of George Floyd is to be dismissed as inauthentic, nor unwarranted. While there is much we don’t yet know, the now-infamous video is certainly prima facie evidence of police abuse. Still, there is much that must be to be determined before we can reach legitimate conclusions: was the knee on the neck accepted procedure in that department (doubtful), used on Whites and Blacks alike, or did the officer go out of bounds? Was he disciplined before, or even did the department try to fire him before, but was unsuccessful due to union contract protections?

We still have much to learn.  In time, we will know. What we do know now is that the matter has the full attention of state, local and federal prosecutors, and justice will be done, and in the daylight of media coverage. In turn, a salutary deterrence effect of rogue police behavior will be advanced.

At the same time, it’s also worth noting that the same folks who are quick to condemn all police, and indeed our entire country for “systemic racism,” are the first ones to dismiss the rioting and looting as coming from a “few bad actors” while the “overwhelming majority of protestors are peaceful.”

Well guess what? The overwhelming majority of police are upstanding and brave individuals, performing a ever-more difficult and dangerous jobs (and so they do deserve robust job protections, just not at the expense of preventing the removal of those who do not deserve to wear a badge).

Before we proceed however, it must be stated unequivocally that the entire premise of “police slaughtering Blacks” and “systemic racism” in this country is a big lie – one worthy of premier propagandists like Edward Bernays and his spiritual protégé, Josef Goebbels. Don’t take my word for it – it’ll be dismissed as coming from a White male, in Progressive-speak meaning that it is to be summarily dismissed. So instead, consider the words of intellectually honest Blacks, such as Candace Owens (here  and here) and Larry Elder (here and here).

When you have big lies developed, distributed and adhered to, notwithstanding contrary evidence, you have an underlying agenda – one that may be shrouded even from the public operatives perpetuating the big lies.

America: Coming Full Circle from the 1960’s

Cross-posted from trevorloudon.com

May 30, 2020

This is being written moments after the successful launch of the Crew Dragon – atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. This marks the first time in about a decade that the United States of America has been capable of launching astronauts into space – heralding a triumphant recovery from the Obama administration’s evisceration of NASA.

It crossed my mind that, thanks to Obama, the 50th anniversary of America’s moon landing passed with America rendered incapable of even launching an astronaut into orbit. Just one of the many wrenching examples of Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America.

So watching on TV this American with several grey hairs could detect dampness in his eyes – as memories of the “space race” and John Glenn; the tragedy of Apollo 1 fire; the Apollo 8 crew reading from The Book of Genesis on Christmas Eve, 1968; and America’s triumphant landing on the moon in July, 1969 – all came flooding back.

Today’s launch is yet another fitting symbol that President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” is well underway – “promises made, promises kept.”
