The Next Boot To Drop

Actually trying to step away from the news for a bit, as it is making me a touch pessimistic. Yes, there are some good things happening: lawfare against Trump seems to be coming apart, various anti-2A initiatives getting exposed and hammered, some really good news from some of the local elections around the country, and more.

That said, I’m seeing a lot of push of ‘our democracy’ and that we are a democratic government instead of a constitutional republic. Yes, it does matter. Democracy is mob rule, and the founding fathers were right to shun it. What is being done now is a deliberate campaign both to push the idea onto the public that we a democracy no matter what; and, that Trump and all who oppose the (so-called) progressives are not just an enemy, but evil that needs to be removed.

The amount of ‘who will rid me of that troublesome priest’ rhetoric is astounding. And, it is being picked up on. It’s not just troubled souls like the young man in Tennessee with mental issues who is being sought in the belief he means to harm Trump supporters. It’s far more than that, and it is scary.

I’ve been worried for a while that even if Trump wins (and I expect to see every effort made to keep that from happening), that he (and/or his VP pick) will not be allowed to take office. That is to say, that they are killed. When you listen to the rhetoric, and not just in the wake of the Supreme Court decision, there appears to be a strong call for violence to be done to him and his supporters. You don’t innocently accuse someone to being an existential threat to ‘our democracy’ and then be surprised when some of the less stable people take you seriously.

As I said, the young man in Tennessee is not alone. I fully expect to see violence of many types and on many levels as this election moves forward — from the progressive base against not just Trump supporters, but against conservatives, libertarians, and others who oppose any part of the progressive agenda. Throw that in with all the interesting military-age males coming across the border and things don’t look all that good.

Also, anyone want to bet that as lawfare implodes that they double-down on it?

Prepare for emergencies, keep your head on a swivel, and your things where you can find them in the dark. Keep your friends and loved-ones close. There looks to be a storm coming.

Getting hit by lightning is not fun! If you would like to help me in my recovery efforts, which include moving once we have medical issues cleared up, feel free to hit the fundraiser at A New Life on GiveSendGo, use the options in the Tip Jar in the upper right, or drop me a line to discuss other methods. It is thanks to your gifts and prayers that I am still going. Thank you.

  1. the modern american left is all about projection – you take whatever fear mongering they are pushing and realize it is at the same time their wish list on how they will act if they attain the power they long for. and of course the established double standard that violence from the left is freedom of speech, where any against their narrative speech from the right is in fact actual violence. the speech patterns are deliberate to “other” those they want to control/oppose/replace – hey, someone has to play the part of the kulaks in what is to come!

  2. For your consideration, Twain’s finale for “Connecticut Yankee …[1]”; all-sparkly Camelot tainted by the Worm. Frankly, we have a better shot at redemption, but cf. Mr. Wolf’s last paragraph.

    [1] Armageddon on a small island; have the crows ever feasted so?

  3. And the FBI is prepping the battlespace by putting out a vague “wanted” for an Iranian assassin looking to take out Trump administration folks. The claim is that it’s over the killing of that terrorist general during Trump’s administration.

    You’re not living in a good place when conspiracy theories always make sense….

  4. I have repeatedly said that it is a miracle that Trump is still alive. From the time he glided down the golden escalator in 2015, up to today, he has been a target by Democrats. He is a very stubborn egomaniac, and this keeps him going, but that won’t protect him from attacks. I expect that he will be attacked and that if it isn’t successful, which I pray won’t be, he will get a political boost the likes of which we have not seen since 1981.

    But we’ve seen Senator Paul lose a lung and his attacker given a punishment that was not justice for that crime. We’ve seen the GOP leadership shot down with their attacker killed during the attack, but it seemed that it did not faze Democrats. So I expect Trump to be attacked and I pray he survives it.

  5. Laughing Wolf is having a harder time laughing? Me too.

    And it will be at least 2 months before I can move 200+ miles to be with my Fiancee and her family.

    Meantime, your last paragraph, good advice in the best of times, I will take to heart especially now.

    Best of luck to you. We will all need it.

  6. I share the same fears. I also note that if such should actually take place, that we are already beyond the Constitutional Republic and the old Social Contract is already gone. Which means we are beyond tactical guidance by them on what is to come. Human politics has been around as long as there have been human beings. It has, at its base, been the imposition of force. It is going to take a peaceful and secure period from opposing politics to create a new Social Contract.
