“Answers” That Cannot Be Questioned

feynman how can it be Richard Feynman, physicist

Just two months ago, at a drive-in rally in Willington, Delaware Joey B pumped out this pabulum after his alleged election:

“I pledge to be a president who does not seek to divide, but unify, who doesn’t see red states and blue states, but only sees the United States.”

If this is Joey’s idea of unification we may as well draw up the articles of secession:

Very quickly, the Democratic Party’s allies in at Google, Twitter, Facebook, and Apple have moved to shut down many legitimate and popular conservative and Republican news outlets, including the Twitter feed of the President of the United States. With the Democrats in control of the government, these leftist internet platforms know they have nothing to fear by doing this, that if anything the Democrats controlling Congress will applaud them and encourage them to censor more conservative and Republican outlets, to shut them all down if possible. – Behind the Black


It’s certainly no mystery to those of us who were paying attention during the Obama occupation how we got here:

From ThePeoplesCube during the Obama years.liberty It’s like déjà vu all over again - in high-speed

It won’t be long before our fellow citizens on the left will be wondering how they stumbled into such a giant rabbit hole that they never even saw. I suppose we could recite Martin Niemöller’s poem for them, but it will fall on deaf ears. The only thing they will know for sure is that it was Donald Trump and his rightwing cohorts that caused such a catastrophe.

No Justice, No Peace. We Didn’t Make the Rules, Alinsky Did

“The army of the emboldened and gleefully ill-informed is growing.”
― Andrew Breitbart

 riot language Martin Luther King Jr., 1968

I woke up today angrier than yesterday, and angrier than the day before that. This has been going on so long you’d think we’d all have reached the final stage of the grief cycle by now. Thankfully no, many of us still have a fire burning in our belly and are still squarely entrenched in the “anger” stage with no intention of allowing it to abate. In seems righteous.


Sarah Hoyt comes closest to expressing my feelings, albeit with a lot more youthful, uh, vigor, in her article Attention Please!

Over and over again, you condemn Trump and the “rioters.”

NO ONE RIOTED. Not compared to this summer. THERE WERE NO RIOTS. And the protesters were treated with an iron fist and live ammo, btw…

But they vandalized Nancy Pelosi’s office! Oh, my stars and garters? Evil people. Was that before or after she vandalized our constitution and sank a knife in the heart of the republic? Is the evil bitch dangling from a lamppost this morning? No? They were civilized beyond all hope…

But Sarah, you’ll say, this will give them the excuse to avenge themselves on us.

Dear idiots, you’re like the wife with her arm in a sling and both eyes blackened telling her husband “Please don’t say anything to Joe. He’ll be mad.”

In other words, are you out of your ever loving little minds? These people STOLE two elections — it’s now absolutely obvious the nominal right is fine with this. They hope for crumbs from their masters’ tables. The left is more likely to kill them, but never mind — in a row, in full view, and refused to let us have our day in court to show the evidence. Because the American people are now peons with NO STANDING and can be disenfranchised with no punishment. But you’re afraid that largely (truly) peaceful protesters “made them mad?”

Withdrawing the objection to the fraudulent votes due to the riot? That only makes sense in the mind of an abuser. “I stole your thing, and I was going to maybe give it back, but you cried, so now you don’t get it back.” Are you all actually out of your ever loving minds to blame the protesters and Trump for this?

These people are saying “You peasants dared to show up in our presence. We’re now going to take away even the illusion of franchise.” And…. you’re cool with this? It’s the protesters fault?

Beyond this point the article grows darkly dystopian (Hoyt is a writer of science fiction) so I’d advise you read it only if you are ready to move into the “depression” stage of grief. Me, I’m still blazing angry so allow me to switch over to Nick Freitas, member of the Virginia House of Delegates:

For months, we have watched as politicians, the media, academia, and other political and cultural institutions have either been silent or given approval to rioting, destruction of private property and the harming of innocent people under the auspices of achieving “justice”. Some of those same politicians, reporters and professors are now shocked when another group of people have decided that their concerns over injustice warrant a similar response.

acceptable violence and riots

You cannot act in such a way that diminishes people’s faith in processes and institutions and then act surprised when people turn on those processes and institutions. If you claim that the system is irrevocably rigged, racist, sexist, bigoted, you do not get to then turn around and appeal to those processes and institutions for the peaceful adjudication of problems. And yet that is exactly what many in positions of influence have done. Simultaneously condemning such institutions as corrupt when it suits their purpose, and then holding them up as models to be followed when they approve of the outcomes.

inciting violence

Nor, as Sarah pointed out, can you condone violence for one flank and condemn it for the other. And make no mistake, we are at war and as such our side must refuse to accept these terms of asymmetric conflict or it’s simply a suicide pact.


Fight back with every ounce of Righteous Indignation you can muster: No justice, no peace!

We didn’t make the rules, Alinsky did.

Mood: Indigo

So don't let them begin the beguine
Let the love that was once a fire remain an ember;
Let it sleep like the dead desire I only remember
When they begin the beguine.

The left got woke, we were cancelled. Nowhere in their scheme of One World Government was there a place for a dark horse candidate like Donald Trump who believed in American exceptionalism and greatness. And when COVID engulfed the planet they pulled out their long-held Great Reset plan. Again Donald Trump did not fit into this plan so he had to be destroyed by any means necessary. But allow me to remind you: it isn’t Donald Trump they seek to destroy.

trump it's not me they're after it's you.

I implore you not to lose sight of this critical point: it is us they want…need to destroy.

It is our responsibility to make sure that doesn’t happen. So of course we keep fighting, but today is not the day I can figure out how that works or what it means. All I know is that if we don’t continue the fight it’s likely nobody else will either. We need to regroup: purge, disassemble reclaim what’s salvageable and add what’s missing. In other words a Great Rearrangement. And I don’t want to hear one mention of deck chairs; there is a time for cynicism but this is not it.

I am incapable of any rah rah pep talk so instead I offer a musical example of how elegant, and eloquent, a rearrangement can be.

Cole Porter’s Begin the Beguine was originally arranged in a major key with an up-tempo beguine dance tempo and it was very fine indeed. But here, and more in keeping with my mood today, is a soulful bossa-nova version rearranged in a minor key. I actually think the down-tempo version suits the lyrics better, which after all tell a rather sad story.

Yes, it’s Sheryl Crow, forget her foolish politics; she nails this.


When they begin the beguine
It brings back the sound of music so tender,
It brings back a night of tropical splendor,
It brings back a memory ever green.

I'm with you once more under the stars,
And down by the shore an orchestra's playing
And even the palms seem to be swaying
When they begin the beguine.

To live it again is past all endeavor,
Except when that tune clutches my heart,
And there we are, swearing to love forever,
And promising never, never to part.

What moments divine, what rapture serene,
Till clouds came along to disperse the joys we had tasted,
And now when I hear people curse the chance that was wasted,
I know but too well what they mean;

So don't let them begin the beguine
Let the love that was once a fire remain an ember;
Let it sleep like the dead desire I only remember
When they begin the beguine.

Oh yes, let them begin the beguine, make them play
Till the stars that were there before return above you,
Till you whisper to me once more,
Darling, I love you!
And we suddenly know What heaven we're in,
When they begin the beguine

Let the Great Awakening begin. And let it not begin without the beguine.

There Will Be No Unity Until Morale Improves

what a time to be aliveAs Kurt Schlichter (and others) predicted:

‘…I bet Georgia will go blue on January 6th – I hope I am wrong but, once again we have that classic triad at play, the confluence of rigging, GOP idiocy, and slobbering media tongue-bathing. So, the garbage Democrats will have a rickety hold on Congress and will try to break the filibuster, again forgetting how Ft. Sumpter worked out. It worked out poorly – history, not that our dillweed elite knows any, is full of stories about sides that won the first couple battles yet ended up with their fields sown with salt.’

But c’mon man! Once you develop a winning strategy….you deploy it every. single. time. the situation presents itself.

‘The idea that we might have some legitimate interests and policy preferences is outrageous and seditious and probably transphobic and generally doubleplusungood. We need to give them up and submit, er, unify.

After all, the purpose of this unity babble is to shut us up, to cause us to voluntarily submit, and to get out of the way of the leftist globalist reset desired by these corruptocrats, who match their soaring incompetence only with their inexplicable self-regard.’

‘As for me, I’m not unifying. I’m going to burn everything I can to the ground. Show me an institution worth saving in its present form and I’ll show you an exception that proves the rule.’

In summary then:

‘Sinophilic geriatric weirdo Joe Biden* will almost certainly be sworn in this month, the ravings of the Twitter fantasists notwithstanding, but don’t ask me to treat His Fraudulence like anything but the vaguely aware interloper he is, occupying the White House solely due to a confluence of rigging, GOP idiocy, and slobbering media tongue-bathing.’

And in case this isn’t clear:

‘Unify this, jerks. We’re not interested in normalcy that equals serfdom.’

So yeah, there will be no unity until our morale improves.


Unfortunately I don’t see that happening anytime soon.

What Do We Want? ‘Fweedom’ When Do We Want It? Today!

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.” Oscar Wilde

What is it with Democrats and plagiarism? Their ideology appropriated from Marx, their speeches stolen from British parliamentarians, even their anecdotes lifted from people who led more interesting lives…

Senator Kamala Harris started her life’s work young. She laughs from her gut, the way you would with family, as she remembers being wheeled through an Oakland, California, civil rights march in a stroller with no straps with her parents and her uncle. At some point, she fell from the stroller (few safety regulations existed for children’s equipment back then), and the adults, caught up in the rapture of protest, just kept on marching. By the time they noticed little Kamala was gone and doubled back, she was understandably upset. “My mother tells the story about how I’m fussing,” Harris says, “and she’s like, ‘Baby, what do you want? What do you need?’ And I just looked at her and I said, ‘Fweedom.’” – Elle Magazine

Very touching. Or at least it would be if it were true, which of course it’s not:

So, again I ask,  what is it about today’s Democrats and plagiarism? Could it be that left to their own devices they don’t have an original thought?



Or if they do it’s really not the sort you want memorialized:

So Georgia goes to the polls today to vote for 2 senators. Let’s pray they don’t choose two more lying dog faced pony soldiers. The country is counting on y’all to accept a bit of unpleasantry.

It’s Theater, It’s Absurd…And Yet We Wait

“Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes, it’s awful.”  ― Samuel Beckett

Shouting-Your-Demands-Tim Etchell

On any other first Monday of a new year I would be guardedly optimistic about what was to unfold over the next 12 months. But as it is I’ve grown as weary of the tick-tock-big-news-to-follow teasers from our camp as I have the drivel from the left.

I keep getting the feeling that I’m watching a live action version of Beckett’s Waiting For Godot – in which Estragon and Vladimir wait endlessly for someone who never shows up. Some people choose to interpret the play as a nihilistic statement but I tend to view it more in an existentialist light which requires each man to bear his own burden and make the most of the life he’s been given.
VLADIMIR: But that is not the question. What are we doing here, that is the question. And we are blessed in this, that we happen to know the answer. Yes, in this immense confusion one thing alone is clear. We are waiting for Godot to come–
POZZO: Help!
VLADIMIR: Or for night to fall.
(Pause.) We have kept our appointment and that's an end to that. We are not saints, but we have kept our appointment. How many people can boast as much?
ESTRAGON: Billions.
VLADIMIR: You think so?
ESTRAGON: I don't know.
VLADIMIR: You may be right.
POZZO: Help!
VLADIMIR: All I know is
that the hours are long, under these conditions, and constrain us to beguile them with proceedings which —how shall I say— which may at first sight seem reasonable, until they become a habit. You may say it is to prevent our reason from foundering. No doubt. But has it not long been straying in the night without end of the abysmal depths? That's what I sometimes wonder. You follow my reasoning?
ESTRAGON: (aphoristic for once). We are all born mad. Some remain so.
POZZO: Help! I'll pay you!
ESTRAGON: How much?
POZZO: One hundred francs!
ESTRAGON: It's not enough.
VLADIMIR: I wouldn't go so far as that.
ESTRAGON: You think it's enough?
VLADIMIR: No, I mean so far as to assert that I was weak in the head when I came into the world. But that is not the question.
POZZO: Two hundred!
VLADIMIR: We wait. We are bored. (He throws up his hand.) No, don't protest, we are bored to death, there's no denying it. Good. A diversion comes along and what do we do? We let it go to waste. Come, let's get to work! (He advances towards the heap, stops in his stride.) In an instant all will vanish and we'll be alone once more, in the midst of nothingness!

Sorry if it’s too early in the week, the year, the game to get pragmatic, but it must be said: if having waited on January 6th and nothing significant transpires - and I fully anticipate it won’t – what then?

I’m just asking, I don’t have the answer.

“Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes, it’s awful.” – but I repeat myself.

Dim Sum? Yes.

Quelle surprise! As it turns out President Trump was 110% correct about calling COVID-19 the Chinese Virus.

According to the Daily Mail today, which is once again doing the work American journalists refuse to do:

China lab leak is the 'most credible' source of the coronavirus outbreak, says top US government official, amid bombshell claims Wuhan scientist has turned whistleblower.

Mr Pottinger said that the latest intelligence points to the virus leaking from the top-secret Wuhan Institute of Virology, 11 miles from the market, saying: 'There is a growing body of evidence that the lab is likely the most credible source of the virus.'

Matthew Pottinger, who is President Donald Trump's respected Deputy National Security Adviser, says the most 'credible' theory about the origin of coronavirus is that it escaped from from the top-secret Wuhan Institute of Virology in ChinaTop-secret Wuhan Institute of Virology in China

So, it escaped from a super-secret lab where it was being tinkered with as opposed to being a natural mutation that spread unfortunately but innocently from bats in the Wuhan Wet Market. How unbelievable! Who could have imagined such a thing? 

Defying Beijing, Donald Trump doubles down on use of 'Chinese virus' label  for Covid-19 | South China Morning Post

As China was hawking the “wet market scenario” journalists back in America, where “truth” is now a quaint, almost anachronistic concept, were busy promoting Beijing's version while simultaneously spinning the myth that our President was racist for calling a Chinese spade a spade. Yeah, they really think we’re that stupid.

Now that the president has joined in, referring to the virus this week as the “Chinese Virus” and repeatedly defending the label, the situation for Asian Americans is likely about to go from bad to worse, several experts told The Post.

(In) the latest instance of Trump deliberately calling the novel virus a name that has been frowned upon by critics, who say its usage could lead to increased discrimination and racism toward Asian Americans

“It’s racist and it creates xenophobia,” Harvey Dong, a lecturer in Asian American and Asian diaspora studies with the University of California at Berkeley, told The Post. “It’s a very dangerous situation.”

“[Trump is] essentially throwing his American citizens or residents of Chinese and Asian descent ‘under the bus’ by ignoring the consequences of the language he uses,” said Cheah, a psychology professor at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. “He’s fueling these anti-Chinese sentiments among Americans … not caring that the people who will truly suffer the most are Chinese Americans and other Asian Americans, his citizens whom he’s supposed to protect.” WaPo 3-20-20

And apparently over 80 million Americans - give or take a few million – really are that stupid.

dim sum all day

Dim sum? Yeah, all day, everyday. God help us.
