Gaslighting …

Another example of blatant distortion of what President Trump said. Liars.

You Are Not Insane

Main Stream Media propaganda continues full speed today with nearly all media outlets continuing to push the lie that Dementia Joe won the 2020 presidential election over President Donald Trump and that all reports of election fraud by the Democrats in Pennsylvania, Michigan and elsewhere have been disproved.

Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter continue to suppress any attempt my members to spread legitimate articles highlighting the hundreds of examples of outright fraud in the cities of Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Detroit, among others.

Modern journalism no longer reports the news and investigates corruption, but instead joins the monolithic left’s gaslighting of the American public to make things that are true appear false and plain lies and corruption true.

Gaslighting is a tactic in which a person or entity, in order to gain more power, makes a victim question their reality. It works much better than you may think. Anyone is susceptible to gaslighting, and it is a common technique of abusers, dictators, narcissists, and cult leaders. It is done slowly, so the victim doesn’t realize how much they’ve been brainwashed.


To take just one perfect example of the fantasy world promoted by former news organizations like The Washington Post consider its treatment of the USPS whistleblower who exposed vote fraud efforts by post office supervisors and workers in a Project Veritas series of videos. James O’Keefe and his colleagues at Project Veritas are among the few true investigative journalist in America today.

According to Lawrence Person’s Battleswarm Blog:

We’ve reached the point in the post-election cycle where the mainstream media is so desperate to make Democrats’ election fraud for Joe Biden stick that they’re not just ignore election fraud stories, they’re outright lying about them.

Take for example the recent news story of the U.S. Postal worker whistleblower Richard Hopkins recanting his accusations of being instructed to backdate ballots.

Just one little flaw in the story: he did no such thing.


O’Keefe released an audio recording of USPS Office of the Inspector General Richard Strasser attempting to browbeat get Hopkins to change or recant his story.

Remember back in olden days, like about 18 months ago, WaPo, New York Times, the cable news outlets and all the rest held the words of an anonymous whistleblower from the Pentagon as sacred script?

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was one such whistleblower who claimed that President Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate Dementia Joe’s family’s dirty dealings there. The media tried to turn him into a martyr for truth, justice and the American way. Turns out he was just a self-promoting military bureaucrat who didn’t like the fact that his Commander in Chief ignored his recommendations on foreign policy.

He lied about what the president said in a call to the Ukrainian president and went on to actually admit he’d made stuff up.

But Vindman clarified during his testimony that the president did not bring up the topic rooting out corruption during the phone call, but he included it in his summary of the call anyay.

When asked by the Democrat counsel about whether the summary he wrote was false, Vinman hesitated.

“That’s not entirely accurate, but I not sure I would describe it as false, it was consistent with U.S. policy,” Vindman said.

Vindman said he included the rhetoric about corruption as a “messaging platform” to describe U.S. policy toward Ukraine, even though it was not discussed on the call.


Of course we now know that the entire Russian collusion story, Vindman’s part in it, and the subsequent Mueller investigation were rotten from the start, cooked up by Crooked Hillary and The Obama’s plants and holders throughout the U.S. government.

Yet for four years the media promoted that false “narrative” to hamstring the Trump administration, all the while ignoring the very real criminality of The Obama administration’s using the full apparatus of the U.S. government to illegally spy on a political opponent, to say nothing of Hillary’s pay for play graft and Dementia Joe’s family members excepting bribes from foreign governments (passing along 10 percent to “the big guy”).

Now we have outright law breaking. Bold face election fraud, shameless and carried out in broad daylight for all to see, and the media keeps telling us there’s nothing there.

“Who you gonna believe, me or your lying eyes?”

To Washington, DC or Bust

The Trump Train’s a coming

A buddy of mine and I will be attending the Stop the Steal rally for President Trump this Saturday in Washington, DC.

Already leftist thugs are preparing to attack Trump supporters, so we really need the numbers. If you’re available, please come. I can fit three more people in my vehicle.

Most conservatives are not the rally and protest types. But this is a crucial time for our presence to be felt. The president needs our support, the media, Democrats and the commie left need to see us out in force.

We will not be silenced.

We will not allow this election to be stolen.

Enemies Lists

Gizmodo Movie Night: 15 Movies That Fight Back

The ostensible leader of the Democrat Party, the singularly brain-dead former waitress Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex (D-NY-14th) called on her fellow Leninists to create a blacklist of President Trump’s staff members, supporters, financial backers and lawyers.

The goal, one shared by all leftist, is to intimidate and silence their political opponents. As Paul Mirengoff of the Powerlineblog notes:

The primary concern of Leninists is always with raw, absolute power and with crushing those who stand in the way of their efforts to obtain and hold it.

America’s neo-Leninists don’t exactly seek to crush people who disagree with them. Not, at least, in sense of exterminating them or exiling them to Siberia.

Instead, their ambition is limited (for now) to “canceling” political opponents — hence the “cancel culture.” They want to prevent their opponents from having fair access to the public and from making a living.


He goes on to quote a former staff member from The Obama administration saying they are indeed creating an enemies list known as the “Trump Accountability Project.” Here’s a handy link to the blacklist:


And, over at The Federalist, David Marcus writes:

Hours later, failed GOP strategist Rick Wilson, a leader of the anti-Republican PAC, told the Washington Post that this was just the beginning, that the group would be going after the law firm Jones Day for further harassment including targeting clients of the firm in a effort to harm their business. Their justification for this bizarre and dangerous behavior is that Jones Day was hired to assist in the Trump campaign’s efforts.


Credit Trump for exposing these loathsome liberal Republicans, especially those of the grifter class — like Wilson, Pierre Delecto, the tour boat captains of Conservative Inc., and any of the half-witted Bushes — Republicans who have gone along for years with the Democrats to screw the rest of us.

For years now on college campuses leftist students and professors have been “doxxing” anyone who disagrees with their positions on issues such as climate change, Palestinian rights, and a host of other leftwing causes and beliefs. Conservative, prolife and Republican student groups and speakers are routinely mobbed, shouted down and attacked.

Some conservative activists have had their homes “swatted,” that is when someone calls the police with a false report of some serious crime, prompting police SWAT teams to swarm the innocent home.

Leftist mobs of Andy Tifa warriors and Burn Loot and Murder thugs for the past several years, and more intensely in the past several months, turned up the heat, literally, setting major cities to flame in their idiotic revolution. Stalking downtown sections, they invade restaurants, accost individuals and businesses demanding fealty to their cause on pain of violence.

The entire phenomena this past presidential election season of the “shy Trump voter” represents another manifestation of this intimidation as voters expressed reluctance to tell pollsters for whom they planned to vote or talk about the election to friends or family who supported former VP Dementia Joe.

So now, the left wants to escalate the intimidation by creating enemies lists.

Maybe it’s time to turn the table. Conservatives can make lists too. The left counts on us to obey the law, follow the rules and turn the other cheek. Time to say to hell with all of that. Anytime a Democrat politician speaks in public, or private for that matter, there should be a crowd of hecklers shouting that moron down.

Yea, find out where the financial backers of Insurrection Inc. live and work, where the go to workout and play, drink and dine and vacation, where their kids go to school, and harass the living crap out of them. Demand that Republican attorneys general start following the money trail and bring RICO indictments and convictions.

If you don’t have a concealed carry permit, get one. Learn how to use a weapons and carry it with you. Don’t go out in pubic alone. All ways travel in groups and be prepared to fight.

I say this as an out-of-shape middle-aged man, who would likely get my ass kicked in such a brawl. But if the rest of us “normals” a Kurt Schlicter calls us, stand up and refuse to back down, maybe we can turn the tide.

Because we must. The left will not stop until we are all under its boot.

Made the Switch

No Debate

A Facebook friend recommended this article from The Atlantic: Liberals and the Illiberal Left (What to do about Left-fascism?)

Actually, he was commenting on some comments on the article that appeared in Against Crony Capitalism. The jist of which is the totalitarian impulse of much of the left today when it comes to debating their ideological opponents.

The “illiberal liberals.” The Left-fascists. The political correctness brigade. The anti-intellectual bullies obsessed with perceived oppression and hierarchy. Liberals need to stand up to this narrow minded red guard.

Against Crony Capitalism

D.A. Carson expands on the notion in his 2013 book The Intolerance of Tolerance. He talks about the difference between past definitions of tolerance, which meant that even if you disagreed with someone, you still “tolerated” them because everyone is entitled to their own opinions and should be free to express them. As one Amazon reviewer wrote:

Underpinning this was the belief that there really is such a thing as “truth” and that free discourse was an important aspect in finding and exploring it. The “new” tolerance, in contrast, starts with the basic premise that in matters of morality and belief, there is no “truth,” only opinions.

Amazon.com reviewer

The short essay in Against Crony Capitalism itself references a 2015 article by David Frum discussing Liberals and the Illiberal Left. The mindset of the modern leftist insists that “equal political rights for the oppressive capitalists and their proletarian victims…will simply keep in place society’s unequal power relations.”

Why respect the rights of the class whose power you’re trying to smash? And so, according to Marxist thinking, your political rights depend entirely on what class you belong to. The modern far left has borrowed the Marxist critique of liberalism and substituted race and gender identities for economic ones.

The Atlantic

You can see that kind of thinking in action in this video from a June 29 NYC Community Education Council District meeting where one member makes a lame joke and is set upon by his viciously woke fellow council members. The video is painful to watch but very instructive as to where we’re heading as these Marxist thought cops gain more traction throughout the various institutions of American society.

The rabid reaction of the council members to the errant member’s wrong think illustrates that notion: “Why respect the rights of the class whose power you’re trying to smash?” There really is no reasoning with these secular religious fanatics. Whether we’re talking about the Black Lives Matter movement or Antifa and it’s allies, there is no room for compromise or debate.

The left wants to silence the rest up us and enforce its dystopian views and policy proscriptions on the American society, whether we agree or consent to them or not. They’ll use “cancel culture,” threats and protests, and outright violence to intimidate opponents into silent acquiescence. Once they gain sufficient control of the levers of power, there will be no alternative voices or choices.

Against such a foe there is no point in pretending “we’re all in this together.” There is no go along to get along. To paraphrase Ann Coulter’s recommendation for dealing with radical Islamists, convert them or kill them. When you see mobs in the street smashing and destroying and burning, beating up innocent bystanders, threatening families trying to enter a church, we’ve moved beyond the time of debate and peaceable coexistence.

However, such a militant mindset alarms most Americans. Just like the ordinary Germans in the aftermath of World War II who were shocked to learn of the atrocities committed in Eastern Europe by their leaders, or the Russians who stayed silent out of fear of reprisal during Josef Stalin’s forced famine that killed between 7 million to 10 million Ukrainians, we would prefer to keep our heads down and pretend this moment will pass.

I fear the moment will not pass. The left never stops. Marxists never develop second thoughts. The revolutionary mindset is one of iron-clad convictions and viscous self-righteousness. The only proper response to the totalitarian is a punch in the face or a bullet to the head, and the only debate is which caliber. Unless we develop a conviction that American civilization and traditions are worth fighting and dying for, we will spend the rest of our lives on our knees.


Punch Back

One common theme runs through the following videos: radical leftist thugs attempting to intimidate or outright attack otherwise innocent people.

BLM And ANTIFA want to Destroy Faith, Family and Freedom!

BLM and ANTIFA attacking Christians going to church…wow you still think this is a friendly movement? OPEN YOUR EYES CHURCH! This is a diabolical Marxist movement working to destroy traditional values, destroy your faith, destroy the church and take your FREEDOM! WAKE UP WAKE UP before it’s too late!

Posted by LEXIT on Monday, July 6, 2020

Been thinking for some time now about getting a concealed carry permit. The more I see of this kind of violence in the streets of American, the more I want to follow through, take the class, get the permit and start carrying a handgun on me.

Really bugs me to think that I or anyone else would have to resort to carrying a gun, let alone use it, but town, city and state governments around the country seem to have completely forfeited their responsibility to protect the public.

If they won’t then I guess individual citizens need to step up.

The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds, especially when it comes to money.

Right at the top of the leftist political graft racket of course is the Clinton Foundation where the nation’s, hell, the world’s number one grifters received bribes from foreign countries and companies in order to receive access to the corrupt couple.

The phrase “doing well by doing good” applies to nearly all leftist organizations, whether Planned Parenthood, ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center, and a host of other social justice/leftist rackets.

The Free Beacon today offers a profile of “Talcum X,” Shaun King, the white guy who pretended to be a light-skinned black guy when he ran some sort of civil rights organization.

The article highlights King’s channeling of funds from one of his organizations to organizations run by his staffers.

According to the article by Joe Schoffstall:

But over the past 15 months, the Real Justice PAC, staffed by a number of left-wing activists, has funneled a quarter of the money it has brought in back to companies linked to PAC leaders.

Since January of 2019, the PAC has cut dozens of checks totaling more than $460,000 to three political consultancy firms linked to PAC employees. The PAC’s data strategist, Jin Ding, and its treasurer, Becky Bond, manage two of them: Social Practice LLC and Bernal Alto LLC. The third—Middle Seat Consulting—was cofounded by one of the PAC’s original leaders, Hector Sigala.

Remember in the run up to the 2012 election how the Obama Administration sicced the IRS on Tea Party groups that were just staring out and trying to gain federal tax-exempt status? The IRS under the direction of Lois Lerner sat on and then delayed dozens of applications, requiring mountains of additional and intrusive documentation. When called out on it, the administration blamed it on some low level IRS flunky in the Cleveland office. Lerner then quietly slunk into oblivion and retired with full pension and benefits.

The damage had already been done. The delay took the steam out of the Tea Party movement which wanted to have an impact on the 2012 election. The voices of millions were silenced by the very administration they so strongly opposed.

Meanwhile, the left and Democrat politicians constantly carp about “dark money” groups by which they mean conservative groups that don’t disclose their donors. The reason they don’t is because to do so would expose innocent people who simply want to have an impact on public policy to leftist thugs who will target, harass and intimidate those donors.

And, the dirty little secret in all of this is that the very groups the yell the loudest about “dark money” in politics are themselves, funded by undisclosed donations.

Talcum X’s little money laundering operation is nothing new on the left. The number one priority of conservative politicians should be defunding the left. Whether cutting off funding to the baby-killing juggernaut Planned Parenthood, the state-sponsored propagandists at National Public Radio and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, or any other liberal group receiving federal funds to promote their evil agendas, a conservative legislative agenda must include defunding these organizations and causes.

Also on the agenda should be a national right to work law, legislation to remove the tax exempt status of labor unions as well as eliminating the automatic dues deduction from worker paychecks, and a move to audit leftist tax-exempt groups with the goal of removing the tax-exempt status of any group or organization that engages in political activity of any sort.

You want to fight the left where it really hurts? Hit them in the wallet.

How far is too far

Over at American Greatness, Adam Ellwanger asks a simple question: how far is too far in terms of the leftist madness that is sweeping major U.S. cities and even some small towns?

If you have had “enough,” I’m asking that you do something. Ask yourself: given my own gifts and my own limitations, how can I contribute? For all of us, this will require some sacrifice. This means you also have to consider what, specifically, you are willing and able to sacrifice. But if you’re unwilling to sacrifice anything—if you’re unwilling to respond in any way other than casting a ballot—then it doesn’t matter what you say: you haven’t had enough.


Over the weekends Antifa mobs broke into a gated community in St. Louis, MO, and began “protesting” down the privately owned streets of the community. One couple came out on the porch of their million dollar mansion and brandished a rifle and handgun at the crowd to keep them away from their house.

Mark and Patricia McCloskey shouted at the BLM/Antifa mobs to back away from their home in St. Louis.

Astoundingly, the city’s Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner put out a statement saying “I am alarmed at the events that occurred over the weekend, where peaceful protesters were met by guns and a violent assault. … Make no mistake: we will not tolerate the use of force against those exercising their First Amendment rights and will use hte full power of Missouri law to hold people accountable.”

Rampaging mobs bent on destruction and intimidation: good.

Citizens standing guard to protect their persons and property: bad.

So, back to the original question: how far would you go? Obviously, the St. Louis couple, who according the media reports are otherwise leftist in good standing (trial lawyers down for the BLM struggle and all that), had had enough. Although, judging by the photos and video, they both could use some firearms training before they actually hurt themselves or others accidentally.

But, really, where is the line? At what point do you say enough is enough? Most of us have only observed this nonsense from afar. I’ve driven through D.C. and seen the boarded up windows in the wake of the riots there a few weeks ago. However, I don’t live in D.C. I’m safely tucked away (or at least I hope) far enough away from the mobs.

Still, our little town of Warrenton includes a host of sympathizers, who show up when called upon to stand along the roads holding Black Lives Matter signs and such. Otherwise well-heeled neighborhoods sprout BLM and “hate has no home here” signs in their front yards. When I see them, I think, “what a moron,” otherwise harmless leftist tools fashionably demonstrating their “wokeness.”

Another part of me becomes highly offended. Those signs and the ideology behind them carry a long pedigree, one of tyranny and oppression. To me, the Black Lives Matter signs are as odious as a Nazi swastika or a communist hammer and sickle, both symbols of murderous regimes with a legacy of death and destruction. Yet, our idiot neighbors blithely post signs in their yards that support an openly Marxist organization with the stated goal of the destruction of our country.

I’ve been tempted to stop and put black duct tape over the “Black” part of the Black Lives Matter signs to make them read “Lives Matter.” But like Mr. Ellwanger’s friends in the American Greatness article, I don’t know if I have the stomach for any possible consequences. Granted I own my own business, so it’s not like I can be fired. But, do I want the grief of mixing it up with the homeowner who planted the sign, or a passerby, or the police?

Does that make me a coward? Probably.

Still, we are approaching a point where even mild-mannered law-abiding citizens will be forced to choose: stand on the porch brandishing your weapon (and be ready to fire it) or let the mobs destroy your home.

Hell of a choice.

Back the Blue march

Supporters of law enforcement showed up in force in Manassas this past weekend. (Mark Hand/Patch)

In nearby Manassass, VA., hundreds of people turned out for a “Back the Blue” demonstration.

Hundreds of people marched in the streets of Manassas Saturday afternoon to show their support for law enforcement officers as police departments across the country come under unprecedented scrutiny in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Participants in the event, sponsored by the organization We Back Blue, gathered at Nelson Park and then marched down Grant Avenue to the Old Manassas Courthouse holding signs that read “We Support Our Law Enforcement,” “No Police, No Peace,” and “Law & Order.”Hundreds back blue at rally
