January 6, 2021 Waving Goodbye to the America We All Knew and Loved

My generation believed in the United States. We believed in its respect for the individual, in its Constitution, in its status as the only benign superpower in history. In other words, we believed in American exceptionalism. “Traditional American values are worthy of a passionate defense,” said author and TV commentator Monica Crowley. Referring to these values as “the American project,” Charles Murray, author of Coming Apart , defined it as the continuing effort “to demonstrate that human beings can be left free as individuals and families to live their lives as they see fit, coming together voluntarily to solve their joint problems.” If you boil it down, what makes our society unique in world history is the respect accorded the rights of the individual citizen. The Constitution was written as a restraint on the power of the government to interfere in our lives.

All that seems to be changing. As we move into 2021, to borrow from Shakespeare, something is rotten. It is difficult to pinpoint the origin or the exact nature of America’s disintegration. It developed a head of steam when a man who hates this country, Barack Obama, was elected president. For eight years, we watched his concentrated assault on our values. Obama and his fellow Democrats have introduced some new concepts into our vernacular: democratic socialism, identity politics, social justice, diversity, inclusion, political correctness, Critical Race Theory, cancel culture. They were intended for the express purpose of destroying everything that is laudable about America.

If you wanted to destroy the USA, how would you do it? “America will never be destroyed from the outside,” said Abraham Lincoln. “If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev said the same thing in 1961. “We do not have to destroy America with missiles,” he said. “America will destroy itself from within.” Were they correct?

In February 2019, astute Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson made this observation: “[t]he political debate between the right and the left seems to be moving forward in a manner that indicates the fundamental robustness of the institutions of democracy in the U.S.” Peterson’s observation is no longer accurate — our democratic institutions are anything but robust. The political debate is flirting with civil war as progressives in Congress and on social media gang up to censor conservative viewpoints. Citizens have no confidence in their elected representatives, the legal system, the media, or each other. Public officials encourage disrespect for the laws they are sworn to defend. Our cities are being torn apart with rioting, looting, and arson as mayors and governors encourage the breakdown of civil order.

There is no doubt that our government does not run the way it was intended. Congress seems incapable of doing the country’s business. What has it accomplished in the last four years aside from the ridiculous impeachment of the president and sending our tax money to countries that call us names? Using the coronavirus as an excuse, government is trying to insinuate itself into every facet of our lives. As we allow the government to tell us when we can leave our homes, when we can go to work, and under what circumstances we can run our businesses, we relinquish more and more of our independence.

The worst shortcoming of our government is its failure to maintain election integrity. According to the US News & World Report, U.S. elections from July 2012 through December 2018 rated “lower than any other long-established democracies and affluent societies.” The source is a 2019 report published by the Electoral Integrity Project, an independent project based out of Harvard University. This revelation should make all Americans clamor for improvement.

The 2020 presidential election has brought us even lower on the ladder. We have more than a thousand sworn affidavits attesting to massive voter fraud: suspension of signature verification, violation of state election rules, non-verification of mail-in ballots, backdating of ballots, double-voting, dead people voting, hiding ballots under the table, refusal to allow poll-watching, and vote-switching by machine systems. “People are going on the record under oath and risking being canceled, doxed, and even accosted, to tell what they have seen about this election process,” said Rep. Michael Cloud. “The apparent lack of action from the Justice Department regarding a number of anomalies, statistical improbabilities, and sworn accusations of fraud is troubling.” It may be troubling, but it is consistent with partisan activities of the DOJ, the FBI, and the IRS. FBI Director James Comey’s refusal to indict Hillary Clinton, Obama’s weaponization of the IRS against conservative groups, and inaction from the Durham investigation have destroyed the public’s confidence in our justice system.

In spite of the media’s efforts to hide the truth, the public knows what is going on. Actor James Woods tweeted, “70,000,000 Americans are outraged about this befouled election.” “We don’t accept this fraudulent result.” Whenever the president tries to expose the fraud, the media poison the airwaves with the same mendacious phrase: “Trump’s baseless allegations.” It makes my skin crawl every time I see this lie repeated by CNN, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. The media are no longer free to express conservative viewpoints and have abdicated their role as the republic’s watchdog.

What kind of nation are we bequeathing to our children? Unless we wake up soon, it won’t be pretty. Perhaps Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World , was correct when he predicted “a dictatorship without tears … a kind of painless concentration camp so that people will have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing.”

Left-wing media is advocating for arresting Trump supporters just because they might have a thought they disagree with


I find it hilarious
This isn’t the American way.
The violence must end. Democracy, the rule of law, and respect for our constitutional government must be restored
Everyone should condemn the violent protestors storming the Capitol.

Not a peep this last summer out of the media or anyone in government.

If I was trump I would have grabbed general Flynn, the guard, went to the capital and took a stand. Now what? Democrats are going use this to take our rights away! Pathetic

We all went home today because we are comfortable, I don’t want comfort I want liberty

Don’t be cowards at the crucial moment. What happened today was BAD ACTORs that MIXED in with Trump Supporters. The woman murdered was married and a 12 year veteran.

That’s a bunch of bullshit. It was Trumpers scaling the walls and breaking into the capital building and they’ll be prosecuted accordingly…

83% of republicans don’t trust the elections… if you don’t fix it we will breach your house next

What rights?
They tell you to stay home.
They take your job.
They tell you, you cannot eat in a restaurant.
They take away peoples livelihood and life savings.
They now kill your twitter account.
They sensor your facebook account.
They close bars at 10PM as we all know he virus can only be caught after 10PM.
They lie to you and expect you to believe what they say.

Exactly what rights are you referring to?


The Kansas City Star (Hawleys hometown paper) says Hawley has blood on his hands, having staged this mornings political insurrection that led to the bloody insurrection brought on by Trump’s supporters that he dispatched this morning.

Here is the video! It was straight up murder!

If there was anyone more deserving of a punch in the face its this Elitist POS!

Agreed, but when people see politicians babying the likes of Antifa and BLM, changing their policies, bending a knee in the House?

What is to keep them from thinking they can’t get away with the same thing?

Going the voting route doesn’t seem to work especially when it is obvious there were questionable events that occurred.

Think about when Obamacare was forced on us and how frustrated people were not being heard.

I’m not justifying storming the Capitol but I’m not sure what the recourse is if votes are going to be stolen.

That’s just it and you hit it on the head succinctly. Once you take away the one basic right a citizen has you essentially commit suicide for the nation. I don’t see a way out of this unless the rightful winner of this election is restored and amends is made, and that would require a lot of people being implicated and admitting wrong doing. In a culture of political narcissism that simply is not going to happen unless by force. If people think that what has just occurred is going to be forgotten then they are most certainly naive. While for others who are living comfortably with their remote jobs it’s easy for them to summate that this sort of sort of thing happens in other countries and thus life goes on. Except America was that one exception to which your vote counted, especially to lose the commoner who is struggling to makes ends meet, relationships are being destroyed, people losing their livelihoods, their homes, their dignity, the last bit of hope to which a single vote counted has now been bastardised taken away by the same elite who seek to destroy our economy will most inevitably breed a contempt for the ruling class, especially this particular incoming administration. Rigging the vote to protect an exclusive club’s interest is a line crossed too far. If allowed, this is not going to end well for anyone. IMHO it’s an untenable position for both sides and can’t be fixed by the same people who violated and corrupted the system to begin with.

Trump’s mistake was putting his faith in the same swamp gate keepers who sought to undermine his intent, the will of the people in order to run out the clock. Sessions, Wray, Barr, Meadows, McConnell and many more, the list goes on and on but you get the picture.

The freedom movement continues.

Gotta have that caveat in their huh? Rather nullifies the part about I’m not justifying storming the capital.

How will this end? Everyone saying get over it yet nothing is or hs ben done. The politicians in this country that we elected have said we are doing nothing,

The left has effectively disenfranchised 70+ million voters and the allegation of fraud ignored and no investigation has or will take place. Did we see the sam thing happen in Georgia, did the democrats steal senate?

How can half the country trust the the voting is not a waste of time? People are angry at bing marginalized as the democrats marginalized half the country in 2008.

Justify storming the capitol, what choice hav the masters given half the country?
as a side note, why is it ok to demonstrate and riot in the cities? It isn’t covered in the media and certainly ignored by the government.

And in the end, the question, why bother vote?

What will the next 4 years bring? The democrats have proven you can do what ever you want and there are no repercussions.

And then we have the same individual who continues to repeat the same frivolous LIE that “the left” has disenfranchised 70+ million American voters, when IN FACT, a huge amount of republicans in multiple states, and conservative state and scotus judges, as well as members throughout the presidents own cabinet and administration all telling America that there was no systemic fraud or election stealing…

And every American democratic institution has now certified Joe Biden’s victory over Trump…

So, those who continue to perpetuate these lies and slanderous insults against our republic will be immortalized in American history books as a cancerous scourge that visited great harm against this great country and are therefore decidedly traitors of this fine republic…and will be treated as such from now on…:rage:

Your fine republik is a rat infested sewer shit hole.
