The peasants are revolting

The politics, they is ‘a changin’.  That a normal thing, it really can’t be held static for long.  If politics is the art people working to get what they want without killing each other (the Clinton’s not withstanding) then the effects of political decisions will change the things that people want.  Decisions have consequences.  For a very long time now American politics have been a kind of dance where we’ve been taking two or three zigs to the left followed by one or two zags to the right.

The end result is that we are far, far to the left of where we started.  The Donks pushing us to the left still want the Revolution that will transfer the power from We the People to We the Right Sort of People.  A great many Republicans, especially those elected to public office, have decided that they want to be the Right Sort of People too.  I can see the attraction.  The Right Sort of People seem to wind up with the most laurels of media approval and the most goodies under the table.  We the People simply can’t compete with those kinds of incentives.  Oh, well, too bad about us.

That’s heady stuff, and some people can’t get enough of it.  That’s probably why Facepalm Feinstein has announced that she once again running for the US Senate.  She’s 84, and if re-elected she would be 91 at the end of her term.  Any sane person would have retired long ago and counted all the Federal loot she’s managed to funnel into Blum Capital, her husband’s investment firm.  Nope, just can’t get enough of Power, Plaudits and Plunder, can you Di?  You go, Geritol Girl!

I wonder if she consulted with Donna Brazile before making that decision?  Probably not, Donna’s been busy writing her death warrant cum suicide note expose of the 2016 Clinton campaign.  My guess is that Donna decided to put pen to paper right about the time somebody in the Demon-cratic Party realized that the Russia investigation was going to unleash a sewer tsunami from Chappaqua instead of Trump Tower.  Oops.  Who could have seen that coming?

So Donna’s taking one for Team Democrat, essentially ending her own political career to throw Hillary and her ghouls under the bus.  Will it be enough to save the Democratic Party?  I don’t think so.  But not to worry, like Monty Python’s Black Knight, the Progressive zombies are still going to press to the left, with their battle cry, “‘Tis but a scratch.  More Brains for Socialism!”

What has become obvious is that We the People are not We the Peasants we’ve been told we were, and we getting set to change things.  It is no accident that so many go along to get along Republicans are deciding that now is a good time to retire.  Tuesday’s election in Virginia will probably convince more to follow suit rather than face defeat next November.  How all that will play out remains to be seen.  What is clear is that the lock-step death march into the Marxist abyss is faltering.

Now to turn it around.

Immigration pt. 2

Anybody who’s halfway honest about it knows that the Donks are leading the charge on aiding and abetting the unrestrained invasion of America; they have good reasons for doing so.  They are suffering the unintentional consequences of believing their own lies.

Having been wholly subverted by Communist influence operations the Democratic Party became the front line shock troops in the Soviet directed Gramscian long march through the institutions.  One of the effects of that was a Darwinian catastrophe: the Left has largely failed to propagate itself by the natural process of family formation.  Statistically, Liberals have fewer children than the mainstream population.  As a result they need to import a voter base because they are not producing their own.  They are perfectly well aware that the vast majority of immigrants, whether legal or not, tend to favor a larger government with more generous social benefits, thus tend to vote Democrat.  Despite total control of the educational system they are in demographic decline.  A big part of this failure to thrive is in no small measure due to having enacted policies such that most of their future voter base is going down the abortionist’s drain.

Whereas once the majority of immigrants flocked to America for the freedom and opportunity to make more of themselves than they ever could in their native place, Democrats now attract future Democrat voters with the promise of government supplied benefits: the welfare state.  Milton Friedman famously described this as a suicide pact. The Donks are well aware of this, but it has always been their policy to buy votes they could not otherwise earn by promising ‘free” goodies paid for with other people’s money.  A legal immigrant must agree to not avail himself of welfare benefits for the first few years of his residence in the US, an invader can walk in, claim benefits and receive them immediately.  Because the welfare system has been deliberately designed to lock people into it, nearly half of illegals are still receiving benefits five years on.

The fact that it is fiscally insane is not lost on the Party of Destruction, its a feature, not a bug.  Back in 1966 two radical East coast academics, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, dissatisfied with the glacial pace of the ‘inevitable’ revolution, devised a method to hurry it along.  Overload the institutions, compel them to deal with far more than they were ever designed to and so force them into eventual collapse.  Aimed at the welfare system, it nearly succeeded in driving New York into bankruptcy in 1975.  Although the strategy failed to bankrupt both the City and State of New York in 1975 due to prompt and determined action by the Governor of New York, Hugh Carey.

Despite the smoke the Donks blow about concern tor the poor streaming across our borders the mass migration they are fostering is right out of the Cloward-Piven playbook.  Load up the American welfare state with millions of new cases until it is forced into collapse.  The fact is that Immigration and Customs Enforcement is in crisis, the Immigration courts are in crisis, the school system is in crisis, the prison system is in crisis, the welfare system is in crisis.   This cascading crisis is the result of an unceasing influx of foreigners demanding more benefits from a system with ever scarcer resources.  Once these people begin to vote, which is already happening; whether or not they are citizens; they vote themselves the largesse, their entitlements, they feel is their due.

The important question here is not, “How long can this go on,” but rather, “How much longer will you, American citizen, permit this to go on?”  Hence the importance of the upcoming dinner talk this Friday.

Where vultures gather

These days the vultures gather in Las Vegas Washington and Sacramento.

In nature, an honest vulture will circle a dying animal high above and wait for it to die, vultures not being notoriously murderous birds, nor brave.  Once it stops twitching they swoop down on the hapless corpse, say grace and dig in.  They nurture themselves on the substance of the dead.

Democrats are much like vultures.  They circle high above, vigilant and attentive to the normal people they consider  beneath them, their prey.  Then when tragedy strikes, they swoop down, full of moral indignation and righteous sanctimony to advance their unholy agenda, nurturing their ambitions on the substance of the living.

Having been possessed by the sulphurous, reeking spirit of Marxist Leninism the Democratic Party is a party of carrion eaters.  To be sure, they are far more proactive than vultures, as they see it as a moral imperative to insure by their policies an ample and endless supply of corpses.

The Left in general, and the Democratic Party in particular, is an un-indicted co-conspirator in every human tragedy that afflicts America, and are the willing – nay, eager – partners with the Prince of Darkness.  In God’s good time they will share the devil’s doom; God grant that it be soon.

As is Standard Operating Procedure, the Donks are calling for more ‘gun control’.  May as well advocate for more pitchfork control when satan comes out to play.  Strange how they never urge America to more self control.  Las Vegas is unquestionably a tragedy for those present and for the nation, but is less of a tragedy than the travesty of Chicago which produces a bumper crop of corpses every week as it has for years?

Vulture Democrats won’t use Chicago’s gruesome statistics to justify their need to disarm Americans, probably because it is precisely their failed policies which have elevated Chicago to the murder capital of the United States.  Make no mistake about it, they need to disarm us.  They need is helpless before the criminal underclass and the tyrannical upper class.

One of the topics to be discussed in the upcoming October Dinner Talk will be the use of the telephone to impress citizen’s views on the minds of elected officials.  They are driven by ambition to power, which, as the Republic is currently constituted, depends on at the very least not alienating those voters which can alone grant them that power.

Immigration, part 1

I forget who it was said that immigration without assimilation is invasion.  It is also said that diversity plus proximity equals war.  The historical record makes the truth of these statements blindingly, bloodily clear.  America is not and cannot be for everyone; better said, not everyone can be for America.  Even back in the 19th century a full quarter of all immigrants returned to their countries of origin because they simply could not adapt to life in their new nation.  And this, mind you, when going back meant another long and expensive ocean voyage.

When the Founding Fathers erected this nation they intended it for themselves and their posterity.  At that time most immigrants came from England and Scotland, and brought with them English culture and English values.  English values, summed up in the idea of the Rights of Englishmen, flowing from the Magna Carta, were historically unique in the world.  It was those rights – and concomitant responsibilities – that formed the core of American culture.  Until a few years ago it was expected that immigrants to America would conform their cultural attitudes to this standard by assimilation; America demanded that the would be immigrant change himself to fit America, never that America distort herself to placate the immigrant.

The “Magic Dirt” school of Americanization was unheard of.  Magic Dirt theory says that anyone who steps on American dirt, that is, steps across the border on to American territory, thereby becomes an American, with all the rights and perquisites thereunto appertaining, but with none of the duties and responsibilities.  This absurdity has become the central justifying idea in Left’s ongoing war against America.

Everybody goes on about rights.  But rights are not the core of American culture.  The core of any culture is formed by the virtues – and vices – habitually and nearly unconsciously practiced by its people.

Charles Murray in his book Coming Apart, lists four quintessential American virtues: industriousness, honesty, marriage and religiosity (Ch6 pg. 127).  He goes on to quote an Austrian immigrant, Francis Grund’s two volume work, The Americans, in Their Moral, Social and Political Relations:

The American Constitution is remarkable for its simplicity; but it can only suffice a people habitually correct in their actions, and would be utterly inadequate to the wants of a different nation.  Change the domestic habits of the Americans, their religious devotion and their high respect for morality, and it will not be necessary to change a single letter of the Constitution in order to vary the whole form of their government.

The Donk’s unrelenting push for unrestricted immigration coupled with the  triumph of “diversity” is part of the reason America is no longer the country it once was.  Combined with the ongoing culture war against industry vs. welfare, against honesty vs. PC compliance, against marriage vs. every kind of perversion, against Christianity vs. atheistic hedonism, America is on the road to extinction.  There are plenty of extinct species in North America.  America need not be one of them.

A successful fight against illegal immigration is a necessary condition for our survival.  In my next article I propose to address it in more detail.
