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.”

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.”

H.R. 6666 – To Democrats, Hell Is Just Another Voting Precinct

Cross-posted from trevorloudon.com

An ordained minister from Chicago. A former Black Panther. Supported by the Democrat Socialists of America. Supporter of Fidel Castro.

You might think that I was referring to the infamous Jeremiah Wright. Or maybe Barack Hussein Obama.

But no – though the similarities run deep – I refer to a sitting member of Congress, Bobby L. Rush.

As reported in The Washington Times, Congressman Rush introduced the “COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act” – H.R. 6666 ).

He did so on the traditional leftist holiday “May Day.” (You can’t make this stuff up!) H.R. 6666 describes itself thus (underlines added):

“This bill authorizes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to award grants for testing, contact tracing, monitoring, and other activities to address COVID-19 (i.e., coronavirus disease 2019). Entities such as federally qualified health centers, nonprofit organizations, and certain hospitals and schools are eligible to receive such grants. In awarding the grants, the CDC shall prioritize applicants that (1) operate in hot spots and medically underserved communities, and (2) agree to hire individuals from the communities where grant activities occur.”

At first blush, I thought it a Covid-inspired version of the “cash for caulkers” boondoggle that appeared in the Obama-Biden “stimulus” (you know, that multi-billion taxpayer-funded dollar leadup to bring us the “Recovery Summer” that didn’t happen).

The formula fits the template – funnel taxpayer dollars to “community groups” like ACORN, where Alinsky and Obama-modeled “community organizers” will distribute the funds to, well, whomever to do whatever.

But upon further reflection, methinks the intent is much more nefarious than even porko-subsidies for left-wing groups.

No doubt the Democrats have calculated that there’s only one viable “path forward” for inaugurating President Prevagen (Joe Biden), and that is to engineer overwhelming levels voter fraud in order to steal the election – under cover of Covid.

So, ice cream Nancy and her Democrat confectioners are busy cooking up treats for vote fraudsters nationwide: mail-in ballots, prohibitions on voter ID, same-day registration, ballot harvesting (and God only knows what else they’ll scheme up between now and November).

And what better way to execute voter fraud than by prepositioning an army of taxpayer funded, community organizer-selected “contact tracers” who can then – under cover of helping those confined on mandatory lockdowns at election time – deliver and retrieve ballots? Perhaps even “helping” the “sick” fill them out, or even filling them out for them? And then “making sure” that the completed ballots are delivered? (At least the Democrat ones!)

A look at Mr. Rush’s history  supports this supposition, as does the fact that (as of this writing) 59 members have cosponsored the bill – all Democrats.

Now we witness almost daily revelations “unmasking” Democrats as being not just amoral and unethical, but ruthless, criminal and outright evil in their pursuit of power. Everything done and said by the Democrats and their allies between now and November – no matter their stated purpose – must be considered pretense and scrutinized through the lens of their intending to expel Donald Trump from office “by any means necessary.” For to Democrats, “any means” really does mean “any means!”

Justin Trudeau: Beta Totalitarian

On May 1, 2020, the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau (“Justin”) announced a unilateral ban on so-called “assault weapons.” A “comprehensive” ban at that, with upcoming confiscation.

May Day is the holiday in the Marxist world, and it is likely not coincidental that this was Justin’s chosen the announcement date. Marxism, as we all know, is a totalitarian mode of governance.

History is replete with examples of totalitarians confiscating firearms to disarm the civilian populace – just try to name a totalitarian regime that didn’t. As well, history is full of examples of totalitarian regimes surviving longer than they otherwise would have, since unarmed domestic resistance is largely neutered when confronting by armed enforcers.

And so, Justin is very much following in the footsteps of Stalin, Mao, Hitler and Mussolini – Alpha Males all (for present purposes, as they were Communists and Fascists, classify them as Alpha Collectivists).

Yet the Internet is filled with characterizations of Justin being a Beta Male – which does seem to fit. (Whether this is due to nature or nurture we’ll leave for others to assess. We do know that his father apparently tolerated serial and very flamboyant adultery, amongst other things, on the part of Justin’s mother, Margaret Trudeau, a sign of Betahood on the part of the père.)

Justin and others will surely take great umbrage at the comparison to Stalin et als. – not without some justification. After all, it seems inconceivable that he’s personally contemplating having his opponents killed, or sent off to newly established Gulags in Alberta, or killing fields in Saskatchewan.

But this piece isn’t just about Justin – but he and Beta Collectivists like him (i.e., Progressives and Democratic Socialists), be they male or female.  Henceforth, we’ll refer to them collectively (pun very much intended) – as “Justins.”

If I Were in the House Before the Impeachment Vote …

Cross-posted from trevorloudon.com

I would demand time to speak, then stand at the lectern and declare:

My fellow Members of Congress – and specifically, to my brothers and sisters over on the Democrat side of the aisle – as we embark on a vote as to whether or not to impeach President Donald Trump, I bear witness before you this day.

The history of our civilization, over and over, tells us of how individuals find themselves at the juncture of events that will, with time, prove to be of lasting import, to be monumental – the proverbial “one for the history books” moments.

Yet often at that time and place the individuals themselves do not recognize the full gravity of what is transpiring; as humans we are wont to assess based upon the passions of the moment, our individual preferences and goals, or merely taking the momentary path of least resistance or to avoid potential consequences.

I submit to you that this is one of those times of lasting import. Such times, and the conduct resulting, later prove to have been an immortal test of individuals’ character and integrity. We will eventually pass on – but our actions, or inactions, at this time will become our legacy.

Consider: who now do you believe more likely to be in heaven, and who burning in Hell – those who informed the Gestapo about where Jews were hiding, or those who hid them? Those Vichy who collaborated with the Nazis, or those who joined the Resistance to fight evil?

In this chamber we face mere political unpopularity and, perhaps, loss of enriching political power – consequences which pale in comparison to the potential loss of life confronted by those about whom I just referred, those who stalwartly resisted evil.

By this vote, those of us in this chamber are being tested – and many, perhaps even a majority, will be found wanting – by choosing the transitory path of political expediency and party loyalty.

Indeed, is not this the very essence of temptation – the succumb to immediate satisfaction, but at the long-term detriment of our immortal souls?

Admiral Mike Rogers & The Dog That Didn’t Bark

The phrase “the dog that didn’t bark” originates from a Sherlock Holmes story (“The Adventure of Silver Blaze”) – the indispensable clue coming in the form of something that would normally have occurred – but didn’t.

Which brings us to the relentless effort on the part of the Democrat Party (and its Deep State overlords) to remove President Trump from office, and thus undo the election of 2016. Since that time the Progressive forces visible to the public – the so-called mainstream media, the minions of the Democrat Party – have fed the public with allegations of “Russian collusion,” emoluments clause violations, 25th Amendment removal, and “obstruction of justice.” In spite of their all-out efforts, that poisonous Progressive tree has failed to produce impeachment fruit.

The Democrats’ motto appears to be: “if at first you don’t succeed, and second you don’t succeed, and third you don’t succeed, coup, coup, again.”

We now find ourselves being hauled out on to yet another limb of that tree – an “impeachment investigation” (a/k/a “impeachment inquiry”) borne of neither House vote nor due process – purportedly to investigate not “Russian collusion,” but “Ukrainian coercion.”

An obvious question becomes was there ever any good faith belief on the part of Democrats that President Trump had committed any bad acts, much less any serious enough to support a bona fide impeachment and removal from office?

Or has this all been an unprecedented, a downright evil attempt to remove a duly-elected President from office using trumped-up charges (pun intended) – a de facto attempt at pulling off a political coup to overthrow the rightful President of the United States?

It is submitted for your consideration that in answer to that question, “a dog that didn’t bark” provides the telltale clue.

Nancy Pelosi’s Constitutional Process Crimes

Cross-posted from www.trevorloudon.com

“It’s a pun!” the King added in an offended tone, and everybody laughed, “Let the jury consider their verdict,” the King said, for about the twentieth time that day.

“No, no!” said the Queen. “Sentence first — verdict afterwards.”

“Stuff and nonsense!” said Alice loudly. “The idea of having the sentence first!”

“Hold your tongue!” said the Queen, turning purple.

“I won’t!” said Alice.

“Off with her head!” the Queen shouted at the top of her voice. Nobody moved.

“Who cares for you?” said Alice, (she had grown to her full size by this time.) “You’re nothing but a pack of cards!”

– Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll); Chapter XII, Alice’s Evidence

We need not recount here the myriad ways that Nancy Pelosi’s so-called “impeachment investigation” is a Constitutional travesty –  perusal of the non-“mainstream” media and White House Counsel Pat Cippolone’s  letter to the House more than suffice.

The “impeachment investigation” is structured as a Congressional hit-squad, not a bona fide inquiry; it makes even Stalin’s show trials look legitimate in comparison, for at least those were held in public – something the Lavrentiy Beria-resembling Adam Schiff dares not do.

During the Mueller circus we witnessed various folks being charged with “process crimes” totally unrelated to “Russian collusion” – apparently driven by Andrew Weissmann’s attempts to squeeze (false) implicating testimony (against Trump) from the targets, or his retribution if they didn’t succumb to said attempts.

It can be argued that the lack of due process, lack of fealty to procedural precedent, and overall lack integrity, means that by design this “impeachment inquiry” is itself  a series of “process crimes” against our Constitution, committed by those who have designed it, and those who are executing it.

Further, those who are “in the know” about what’s going on, and are in a position to do something about it, or at least to blow the whistle about it, are accomplices to these “process crimes.”

After all, if the Democrats were genuine in their professed belief that impeachable offenses were committed by President Trump – yet also remained loyal to the letter and spirit of our history and our Constitution – they would be sensitive to the serious portends of even commencing such an effort.

So if this was a legitimate effort the Democrats would have made sure that the design of, and conduct of the process would be unimpeachable.

This they have not done. Quite the opposite.  This “investigation” demonstrates not only the Democrats’ duplicity, but also their desperation.

For you see, extremely serious crimes were committed against the Trump campaign; so now the Democrats and Deep State have placed themselves into a position of (as they see it) having to cover up “by any means necessary.”
