Play ball! – UPDATED

The violence gradually being unleashed by the Left is nothing other than the “Gray Terror” inflicted by Soviet Spetsnaz infiltrating the target to create fear, uncertainty and paralysis. The vast Muslim populations recently imported and left to stew in our midst are their tools, whether witting or not. Look for this to continue. Pelosi’s “We are all Republicans now” is exculpatory disinformation. Once the klieg lights go down she’s chortling with her fellow revolutionaries. God grant us an open mike.

First principle: the Left, call them Progressives, Liberals, Socialists, what have you, are all about one thing – POWER. Everything they have done, everything they do is about seizing power, holding power, exercising power – total power over everything – and doing so forever and ever, world without end. Amen. That’s it in a nutshell.

Over at The Belmont Club Richard Fernandez states the problem we are facing in this way:

A civilization at a decision point is almost by definition walking the razor’s edge between two futures.  One future may lead to a catastrophe whose survivors must begin again from [scratch].  The other choice leads to a radical improvement in the human standard of living and greater potential for all. It would seem an easy choice. But the characteristic of a system in institutional crisis, which along with the lack of new energy sources and a failure of public education create [a] “world in disarray”, is that the right choice is impossible to make. You can’t choose the future, only variants of the past.  Any road away from perdition requires huge political risks that are almost impossible to make.

Looking at things from this perspective throws the election of Donald Trump into sharper focus.  Americans know that the country has been pushed to the brink.  The Progressives want to go over the edge imagining that a new paradise there awaits.  Others, your humble correspondent among them, sees this as a collapse into Socialist hell seen so often in the last 100 years.  The Democrats promised a swift, vertiginous dive into the glorious Workers Paradise.  The Republicans promised a more judicious, gradual, moderate, nuanced descent.  Regardless, it was all the same old same old, and it was all pointed down.

It was a near run thing, but although an absolute plurality (not a majority, let it be noted!) of Americans opted for a quick drop into destruction, a sufficient number mustered the electoral votes to try something different.  Donald Trump was set in place to change the nation’s trajectory.  We’re taking a flyer, and we’re still very much up in the air.

The Democrats had it all mapped out, how the decades long legacy of failure would crash landed so the right people, the well connected and superior people could pick up the pieces.  The rest of us would be given the boot-in-face treatment.  Sorry, Donks (NOT!), God blessed America despite your best efforts.  Burns, doesn’t it?

Having failed to seize power by hook, they now resort to crook, trying to smash and grab what they could not take by electoral means.  The escalating violence on the Left is not a bug, it is a feature.  Expect it to increase.

Don’t, however, allow your hearts to be captured by fear, your minds distracted by propaganda, your determination reduced to paralysis; it is what they want.  By all means be prudent; avoid crowds.  I do not count it an accident the the words “Do not be afraid” appear 365 times in the Scriptures.

241 years ago our Founding Fathers took the greatest flyer in history when they wrested political authority from the grasp of the most powerful empire in the world and put it in the hands of We the People.
