New York City, 1985man painting the twin towers from brooklynOpened in 1973, the Twin Towers was a massive complex of 10 million square feet that was home to 430 companies and 35,000 workers. Closed permanently on September 11, 2001

It seems impossible but it has been 20 years since 9/11. The children who were in school that day are now all young adults. You would think that the cataclysmic events that unfolded during and after the worst terrorist attack on American soil would have been the formative experience that shaped the worldview of this cohort. But that is not the case. While many children were too young to comprehend the impact of that day’s events, the four horsemen of the apocalypse - educators, politicians, media and Hollywood – banded together to ensure they never would. The iPhone and all of it’s attendant social media has been more impactful on their understanding of the world than was the hate-driven mass murder of nearly 3000 Americans.

You see, the illuminati did not wish to have the minds of young or old “poisoned” by “Islamophobia.” We were to ignore the fact that the attacks that changed everything forever were driven by a deep-seated, religious based hatred for Western values in general and American values in particular. To this day the truth was deemed by our betters to be too dangerous to share. And they had a more important global agenda to pedal.

May God forgive these self-anointed elitists who have propagandized and brainwashed an entire generation and are now at work on a second, undermining the very foundation of America. They teach that Islam is good, Christianity and Judaism are at best questionable, patriarchy has victimized women and minorities for centuries and climate change caused by white privilege is destroying the planet.

Their answer for all these ills begat by Western culture? “Diversity is our strength.” And in order to enjoy such “strength” we need open borders, sanctuary cities, mass transit, bike lanes, a massive transfer of wealth and a carbon tax intended to eliminate fossil fuels. The elites’ vision of how the New World Order will work for us, the little people, sounds very much like retrograde stone age, a place not unfamiliar to Al Qaeda, ISIS and the Taliban.

And just to ensure the American Idea is laid permanently to rest, our betters would now have us surrender our personal freedoms in the name of collective good will and health. Should we submit to such an insane demand as a nation I will finally concede that the terrorists have indeed won.

As I said at the offset, it is nearly impossible to believe it’s been 20 years since the heinous attack on our freedom and way of life. In my wildest imagination I would never have believed that 2 decades later we would have allowed our social, political and cultural elites to fail us so spectacularly. When we promised we’d never forget -   



I wouldn’t have imagined that 20 years hence teachers would be told NOT to teach about  9/11. Nor ever mention the concept of American exceptionalism – a concept you may recall that Obama found so offensive. I couldn’t have envisioned an education platform informed by wokeness rather than truth and reason. Then again, after the enactment of all the draconian measures that trammeled on American citizens rights and freedoms in the wake of 9/11, I couldn’t have envisioned an open border system that doesn’t even recognize our right of sovereignty either.

I likewise couldn’t have imagined a country that demanded the defunding of First Responders because…racism!

9-11 police defunding

Least of all did I envision a truly illegitimate American President so weak he would walk away from a war zone leaving America’s sworn mortal enemy in control of billions of dollars worth of American military planes, armaments and machinery that I assure you we have not seen the last of.

Any sane person would ask what the hell is going on here. But not our betters. Not our educators, politicians, media or Hollywood luminaries. They’re just worried about abortion rights.

In two decades we’ve progressed from the insanity of “diversity is our strength” to “weakness is our strength.” We are living in George Orwell’s nightmare.

This year I can’t even bring myself to publish the pictures of the destruction as I have for each of the 13 years I’ve been publishing this blog. They are here, if you wish to review.

Many of us will never forget, but the subsequent generations have (mostly) been so brainwashed they don’t even know what they’re not to forget. Our own education system is creating the next generation of Holocaust deniers. We are insane.

So this year all I can say is may God bless America, and continue to preserve our freedom to seek that blessing.

never forget america

Another “Extraordinary Success”

If you Google “naked authoritarianism” you will get page after page of articles referring to President Trump as the most tyrannical figure since ever! Whereas I’m not a patient person I cannot tell you how many pages you will have to scroll through before you see anything else, perhaps never given Google’s bias.

Yet yesterday “Good Old Uncle Joe” mandated vaccines for a wide swarth of Americans, noting that this isn’t about “freedom” or “personal choice.” If it’s not it’s only because we have embraced the left’s proclivity for  word redefinition, along with their comfort with authoritarianism as long as they get to call all the shots. Accordingly, there has been nothing but praise for el presidente from the MSM, because…

not fascism when we do it

The left of-a-sudden seems quite alright with this new progressive “naked authoritarianism.”   For the rest of the country however it’s chilling, the President of the United States imposing unconstitutional mandates without even a flicker of acknowledgement from the left as to what’s happening here. But they will have you believe that it is the Deplorables bringing totalitarianism to our shores.

Also duly noted in yesterday’s Presidential diatribe: Two days before the 20th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks the weakest American President in history finally bares his teeth and lashes out -not at Al Qaeda, ISIS or the Taliban but rather, and oddly, at his fellow Americans who refuse to bend to the will of the New Socialist Democratic Party.

Something seems to have gone terribly wrong in America.

We’ll All Do Just Fine

“Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.” – William Shakespeare

misty early fall road and fence

She packs her things quietly. Despite having strewn little hints and clues of her intent throughout the long hot days and nights,  she catches you off guard when you see her astride the window, awaiting a strong wind to carry her aloft for points south.

open window and field

And while it feels like betrayal it is simply the fulfillment of her promise: to nurture, warm and fortify you for what lies ahead. So you can thrive while she’s gone and endure well enough until such time as she returns with all her heat and light and bounty.


So get ready, she’s leaving; the fields will be empty soon. But we’ll all do just fine.

An Existential Threat: Trunalimunumaprzure

Having some fun with a few paraphrases from Joey’s recent inspirational remarks on post-apocalyptic America:

THE PRESIDENT:  “And, folks, the evidence is clear: Climate change [JOE BIDEN] poses an existential threat to our lives, to our economy.  And the threat is here; it’s not going to get any better.  The question: Can it get worse?” [ARE YOU KIDDING? OF COURSE IT CAN - MUCH WORSE!]

“…It’s just going to get worse and worse and worse, because the storms [FAILURES] are going to get worse and worse and worse.” [SEE? I TOLD YOU.]

“And so, folks, we got to listen to the scientists and the economists and the national security experts.  They all tell us this is code red; the nation and the world are in peril.” [I THINK WE CAN ALL STIPULATE TO THE FACT THAT THE NATION AND THE WORLD ARE IN PERIL…BECAUSE JOE BIDEN IS AN EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO OUR LIVES.]  “And that’s not hyperbole.  That is a fact.” 

13 CASKETSFACT: Joe Biden thinks this was an extraordinary success

“My message to everyone grappling with this devastation is: We’re here.  We’re not going home until this gets done.  I really mean that.  We’re not leaving.  We’re going to continue to shout as long as it takes to get real progress here.” [LET’S HEAR YOU SHOUT, AMERICA. AND DON’T STOP TILL WE’VE GOT SOME PROGRESS!]

I defy you to read the rantings of these two (Schumer and Biden) rambling idiots (here) and tell me we are NOT facing an existential threat thanks to our incompetent political elites. And  the threat is neither climate change nor COVID.

What Dreams May Come…


“To die, to sleep – to sleep, perchance to dream – ay, there’s the rub, for in this sleep of death what dreams may come…” – Hamlet Act 3, Scene 1

As part of my on-again-off-again sabbatical I’m posting SrDem’s last comment on yesterday’s thread for your consideration:

A night nothing much: We're all tired of the fight for freedom, of the constant lies and spin, and it seems there's no end in sight. We know that every year the 'common flu' kills tens of thousands of people, but we never went into a lockdown or worse.

It's looking like this is a "flu', but not a common one and raises the question that could it have been better to let the virus run it's course the same way the 'common flu' did. Once we're all infected, there's no more to be done.

More 'caravans' coming from S. America. We know why they're coming here, we're not monsters, but we don't have the means to or the resources to accommodate them.

Big Motor is shutting down for lack of important pieces to finish the vehicle. What next?

Some idiot is planning a multi billion dollar 'city' somewhere in America's desert. The plan is for some kind of utopia where fossil fuels are forbidden and everyone uses a bike to get around. The plan as presented is so stupid it requires an idiot mind to believe it could work. One of our desert states will be chosen for this ridiculous 'city'. One only needs to ask how the tall buildings will be constructed without the fossil fuel equipment and the plan falls apart before it begins.

Now I'm tired, going to dream about nice things.

And then morning breaks…

and who knows what dreams may come…

Labor Day 2021: Burn ‘em While You Still Can

Originally Labor Day in this country was created to honor the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

labor-day-celebration-1938-detroit-afl-unionLabor Day parade, Detroit, 1938

The current White House Resident, ‘good old Joe from Scranton,’ has chalked up more days marching in Labor Day Parades in the course of his very political career than most U.S. residents have worked in the past year.

Such ironies are lost on members of Joe’s New Socialist Democratic party, who are currently more consumed by fear of the latest COVID variant. It’s also lost on members of the media who are consumed with keeping the fear alive and stoked.

So we find ourselves celebrating Labor Day this year with perhaps the lowest U.S. labor participation rate in recorded history…along with the impressive inflation not seen since the 70s.

This Labor Day, now that Good Ole Joe is in charge of everything, ground chuck is a bit higher.

For that you can thank the New Socialist Democrats along with their New Socialist Republican buddies.

But if you can still afford to, get out there this fine Labor Day and grill up some burgers. Who knows, in a year from now the only people who will be able to afford meat anymore may well be our political elites. So I say burn ‘em while you still can.

Be The Wave

Enlightenment: the moment the wave realizes it is the ocean

blue blue sea and sky

Enlightenment: a blessing…and a curse


“The fair breeze blew,
The white foam flew,
And the forrow followed free.
We were the first to ever burst into the silent sea.”

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
