If You Live In, Or Are Visiting, China — Get Out Now

If you are a U.S. Citizen living or working in China, or are visiting as a tourist, get out now. Leave possessions, take just the essentials, and get out now.

If you have family or friends in China for any reason, urge them to leave now. Give them cover by providing them with a “family emergency” at need. Possessions can be replaced, they can’t. Get them out now.

The Great Silencing Drops Its Mask: Be Prepared

Big Tech, and the Media, have dropped the mask and elements of The Great Silencing are on display for all to see. To be honest, I think that Twitter and Facebook are surprised at the pushback, that in their arrogance and cultivating of the bureaucracy they truly thought they could get away with it.

I’ve written about The Great Silencing here (Part I) and here (Part II). There is far more going on, and at more platforms (hello Google!) than people realize. There are efforts to silence or destroy individuals, sites and technology, as well as parties and campaigns. You even have the Washington Post running damage control trying to deny (or diminish) that Biden threatened to withhold aid unless the prosecutor investigating Burisma was fired. Only problem with that, Biden is on video bragging about doing so.

As blatant as the censorship of the Biden story was, there is more to come. The media, and I include Social Media big tech in that, is all in on trying to prevent information from getting out even as they seek to suppress voter enthusiasm and turnout. Much of the coverage of the polls is pure psyop at this point. One can argue that almost all mainstream media coverage at this point is psyop against the American people.

If the psyops don’t appear to be working, or don’t work at all, hang on to your hats for what is to come. Personally, I’m treating the next few weeks, and the month of November, in much the same way I would treat an oncoming natural disaster: prepare for the worst, and hope for the best. That said, prepare for the Great Silencing to get even more physical that it has so far, as the political assassinations of Trump supporters is just getting started. Violence against Citizens for simply wearing or displaying support for Trump has been normalized, and ignored (encouraged even). If that’s what it takes to win, well, they are all in.

I will note that one of the more interesting, and potentially a very good thing for the Republic, is that Donald Trump isn’t so much ripping the masks off people and institutions, but that they are ripping them off themselves to go after him. When the masks slip, or are thrown down, believe what you see beneath.

Be prepared, be as safe as you can, and be informed. Dig into the news, go to real journalists and sources, and don’t blindly take what Mainstream Media and Social Media say as gospel. When you vote, record your vote if you can. Vote informed.

Good Luck.

Quick Take On First Debate

No, I did not watch it. Well past my bedtime and from the clips and commentary it went pretty much as expected. Based on the clips and commentary, it seems:

  1. Trump more than held his own against his primary opponent, Chris Wallace.
  2. Trump scored hugely by bringing up the stories the media is refusing to cover or downplaying. For many, first they’ve heard of them and hopefully they will look them up.
  3. Trump fought back, instead of just smiling and bending over further as is the Republican party norm. According to the Biden camp, this is unpresidential. Though, to be fair, the better term for the media and the never-Trumpers would be camp followers.
  4. Why was Joe wired, and constantly bringing his hand up to his face?
  5. Joe didn’t win, otherwise his camp and camp followers would not be calling for him to skip the remaining debates.
  6. Apparently, Latino voters see Trump as the victor, and I suspect a lot more do as well.

Your take may vary, and that’s a good and healthy thing. We are each entitled to an opinion, and to safely voice the same. Only True Fascists™© seek to prevent free speech and honest discourse.

Into The Light: Dame Diana Rigg

The Avengers was not a show my mother liked for me to watch, but watch it I did whenever I could. Usually re-runs on PBS, but for me the Diana Rigg years were the best of the series.

Over the years, I saw her in a number of television shows and movies. Sadly, I never did get to see her on stage. She could do everything from ultra-serious drama to high camp, and did so with grace and charm — and clearly had fun with most or all of the roles. They actually let her drive in the race scene in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, and she admitted she had a huge amount of fun, though she also reported the cameraman in the car turned green… If I could have had the opportunity, I would have loved to ask her about a scene in The Avengers where her opponent broke into a series of ballet moves in hyperspeed. The look on her face was “WTF???” and I’ve always wondered if they did that just to get her reaction.

Sadly, cancer has claimed her at age 82.

Thank you for many years of solid entertainment, and all else you provided through your roles. May the light shine down on those you leave behind, and comfort and guide them now and in the days ahead.

An Interesting Read On COVID-19

A friend shared this and I found it an interesting read. It is a different take on COVID-19 based off a supercomputer study done on the genetic composition. Hoping to get some feedback on the study from doctors, see what they say about it.

And It Continues

Dear Mitchell Byars, the female did not confront the 12-year-old, she assaulted him, violently, for supporting a candidate she doesn’t like. Thank you for your contribution to the DNC and your strong support of normalizing political violence. Again, please note she turned around, stalked, and assaulted a 12-year-old rather than engage in any rational action, much less rational discourse. The progressive Marxists really are not going to like what happens once such violence is fully normalized. Or now, when a parent catches them and deals with it on the spot…

For all that I think the post stupid on several levels, Facebook removed a congresscritter’s post citing their violence policy. This is not the only post they have removed, nor have they been shy about removing people from the platform. Twitter has done the same, banning everyone from minor followers of Q to major journalists who are pro Trump. The Great Silencing (Phase I and Phase II) continues, and will accelerate over the next couple of months. It is nice that both Facebook and Twitter have effectively acknowledged that they are publishers, not common carriers…

Some Quick Food For Thought

There is a lot going on. Some of it truly is good, and gives hope on several fronts. Far more, however, is frankly terrifying to anyone who believes in the rule of law and the philosophical tenets of Western Civilization. Political assassination and violent assault is the new norm. We are on the brink not of a slippery slope, but a cliff, and it will take very little at this point to put us over that cliff.

If you have not made basic emergency preparations, start now. Even if there are no food shortages from weather early in the year or problems with production related to the lockdown, food prices are going to go up as we move into fall and winter. Can, buy what you can of canned goods, freeze — stock up. Take supplements or prescriptions? Get as much of each as you can, I’m working on a six-month supply myself. Have batteries? Flashlights? Means to cook if the power is out? If not, you need to prepare. Nature may strike even if we keep from falling over the cliff. And, yes, buy ammo and guns. Also some edged weapons.

I still hope for the ballot box and the courts, but am no longer counting on it. I really do hope that the efforts by Rand Paul and others to investigate who is funding and supplying Antifa/BLM/Etc. takes off, as they are well-funded, well-supplied, and are very well coordinated. Take a look at what people and vehicles keep showing up at trouble spots… Also, as I’ve noted in this series of posts, we really need to know what besides people are coming across the Southern border (and a small amount seems to be coming over the northern as well).

Hope to have more positive thoughts up later this week, work permitting, but this morning finds me perhaps a bit too realistic. Now is the time to prepare, to think about protecting home and family from both people and nature. It is time to stock up, take stock, and be prepared to act at need.

It is also a time to think and decide on the future of the Great Experiment that is America. Are we to continue as a Constitutional Republic with the philosophical foundation built into it by the Founding Fathers? Or, do we want to tear that down and replace it with the socialist state desired by those who are rioting, looting, raping, and murdering their way through major cities? That choice, for now, is yours. Educate, study, then make informed votes for every level of government. Go for the best candidates you can find. Don’t like your current government and what it has done/is doing? Vote in change. Please make informed choices for all, and most of all, get out and vote. Your future truly does depend upon it.

Some Quick Thoughts

Well, the RNC has ended and now the battle for the election begins. It may well turn into a literal battle, but one can hope for something better.

The DNC was extremely negative, filled with envy, anger, hate, and destruction. America is evil, sexist, racist, etc. No real policy, just stated desires to eliminate the Constitution (eliminate 2nd Amendment, restrict or eliminate the first, eliminate the Electoral College, etc.). No speaker offered hope, or grace, to America and especially to the “enemies of the state” who oppose their efforts to any degree. There was even a wink and nod to the ongoing violence, including rape and murder, that not a single speaker acknowledged.

By contrast, the RNC was a story of hope, of Grace, forgiveness, and of all the things that are good in and about America. Rather than fact checks by celebrities/media mouthpieces, the RNC brought in real people, many quite ordinary in respect to celebrity, to detail their experiences and how they overcame odds to raise themselves and others up. In so doing, they did a far more effective job of fact checking the DNC/media. The emphasis was on hope: that America does have problems, but they can be overcome by individuals and individuals working together. That America is indeed the land of opportunity and that equality does not mean equal outcomes, just the chance to grow and succeed if one works for it.

Another interesting contrast this morning is that at the DNC, there were peaceful demonstrations outside. Well, peaceful until the loving, tolerant, thugs attending came outside and began attacking people simply for holding different beliefs and/or supporting opposition candidates. Contrast that to the mobs brought in to literally attack those leaving events at the White House (and maybe elsewhere) in a scene right out of 1930s Germany (or Marxist paradise of your choice).

Make no mistake, the mob violence will get worse. Antifa, BLM, and others will step up their game. There is reason to believe that they have arms, along with the sophisticated communications gear (some of which appears to be military/covert op grade). Where did it come from? What else do they have? There are cells for agitprop and more in major cities, and Wisconsin shows that “peaceful demonstators” can be brought in from around the country rapidly at need.

Speaking of agitprop, the media is glossing over the agitprop that a man who shot himself rather than be captured by police was in fact shot by the police. This bit of agitprop set off yet more “mostly peaceful” demonstrations in Minneapolis…

Again, the violence will only escalate. The people behind the mobs are hoping for violence, especially if they can spin it to being the victims, rather than what happens being ordinary Citizens defending themselves and/or their property. Part of that spin (long planned) is to push the lie that this is happening on Trump’s watch and is his responsibility, rather than the deliberate abrogation of sworn duties by state and local officials who are encouraging and enabling the wanton destruction, rape, and murder taking place during the riots, CHAZ’s, etc.

At this point, it would almost be surprising if the mobs don’t attack voters and voting stations on election day. Again, one can hope but for me it is a faint hope.

The two conventions put things in stark contrast: An America that learns from the past, and moves forward to a better future for all; or, an America that rejects the Constitution and the philosophies that lie behind it to create misery for most while a Nomenklatura rules over the rubble in isolated splendor where the State is god.

Think, vote, and be prepared. Prepare for the worst because even if there is a landslide for Trump, the progressives have already said they will not accept the results. Then again, they haven’t accepted the results from 2016. Sadly, I have to agree with those who say that 2008 may be the last time there was a peaceful transfer of power in our history.

Stop It! Fight Back!

Recently, video showing two Biden supporters attacking a 7-year-old and his mother, has been making the round. Those with a clue rightly called out this thugocracy action for the despicable action it was. Unfortunately, a number of people across the board fell for the ‘What the everloving were parents thinking to take their child to this event’ attack.

STOP IT! 1. It is an effort to deflect blame from the thugs involved. 2. It is an effort to normalize violence against those wearing clothing, carrying signs, or otherwise supporting parties other than the Democratic party. 3. It is an (ongoing) effort to deny people the right to openly support any opposition to the Democratic party, with a goal of making it where there is NO place where one can wear clothing or voice support.

Face facts: this is not the first time a child has been attacked for wearing a hat or other clothing supporting Trump (or other opposition candidates), those being on the street, parks, or other locations. It is not the first time senior citizens, or just plain adult Citizens, have been attacked for wearing clothes or voicing support for anything non-Democratic. A rally anywhere, be it near the convention, a park, or anywhere is supposed to be a safe place and usually is until some thug attacks by driving a vehicle into the crowd/tent, or engaging in physical violence to attack individuals (usually without warning) to remove clothing, destroy signs, or otherwise destroy personal property. The goal is to make no space safe for any opinion contrary to the Marxist left.

When you attack the parents for taking their child to a political event, YOU ARE ENABLING THIS EFFORT! Stop it. Quit normalizing the violence and threats, which is exactly what you are doing. Wake up, as this is a fight and the Marxists are fully prepared to use violence and intimidation to get anyone/everyone else to voluntarily give up rights and most of all the right to express opinions and to a free and fair election. If you continue to cede grounds in limiting the locations and ability to express support of candidates and positions, you are giving them what they want and are complicit in those actions.

Instead, punch back. Forget twice as hard, go for as many times stronger as you can. Defend yourself, and make full use of the law to do so. File criminal complaints and hold police and prosecutors (especially the prosecutors) accountable. File civil actions as well as criminal. Until there is pain applied, this will just keep getting worse.

Things are off to a good start in this case, as the two thugs have been arrested and face multiple charges. For the parents and others involved in this, take it to the next level and press civil actions. This is not a time to be nice, unless you want the violence and intimidation to be the new norm. Make it personally painful for these and all other thugs, because until they face personal sanctions and accountability, they have no real reason to change their behavior. Until individuals are held to account, the mob will only grow and get worse.

Fight back, and quit doing what the Marxists want.
