Kamala Harris v. Gavin Newsom: The Coming Democratic Civil War

The Democratic Party is united — for now. Fear and loathing of Donald Trump keeps the various Democratic factions in a precarious peace. But labor v. environment, Jewish vote v. Muslim vote, and center-left v. hardcore progressivism cannot remain at bay forever. The fiercest battle may well be the looming civil war between Vice President Kamala Harris and California Gov. Gavin Newsom for the party leadership once President Biden leaves the stage.

And it won’t be pretty.

When Biden named Harris his running mate, he conferred on her heir-apparent status. The pick made sense. VP nominees are mostly about pulling together party divisions or offsetting the nominee’s weaknesses. As an old, white male Catholic, Biden running with a minority female checked some important identity boxes. And, in 2020 with a campaign hobbled due to covid restrictions, Harris did just fine. The “not Trump” campaign worked.

However, given an opportunity to establish herself as the next Democratic hope, Harris has proven rather maladroit. Something about her isn’t quite right. Her speeches are mediocre, with poorly thought-out ad libs. Her awkwardness with voters is positively Hillary Clintonesque. After spending her life in the progressive hothouse of California, Harris has shown little ability to build appeal in the other more centrist 49 states. Given the unpleasant portfolio of illegal immigration early in the administration, she failed to distinguish herself. If she has any real policy responsibility today, it’s not apparent. . .

While Newsom fell in line endorsing Biden, he has ramped up his campaign to be the “Next Big Thing” for Democrats. His media appearances are unabated, and his public relations team is working overtime. A foreign policy trip to China to meet Xi Jinping, various progressive policy initiatives passed by a pliant legislature, all resemble the Gov. Ron DeSantis Republican playbook in Florida. Newsom will debate DeSantis at the end of November in a putative dry run for 2028. (Read more from “Kamala Harris v. Gavin Newsom: The Coming Democratic Civil War” HERE)

Spirited Young Men Should Stay Out of Biden’s Military

Joe Biden’s Pentagon—faced with the prospect of a three front proxy war against Russia, China, and Iran—has made recent overtures of good will to America’s spirited young white men.

In a recent ad entitled “First Jump: Be All You Can Be” the Army shows an all-white squad of paratroopers jumping from a helicopter into an open field. It is a shocking ad. Save for one black woman at the end, the ad is free of “diversity,” something nearly unheard of in today’s DEI advertising climate. One enterprising researcher did a survey of all 433 actors in the nationally aired advertisements during the 2022 Super Bowl. He discovered that 40 percent of those actors were black, despite blacks accounting for only 13 percent of the American population.

The Army’s latest television spot, for once, gives an honest portrait of America’s combat troops: all male and mostly white.

After years of woke “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” inspired ads—among which the ad “The Calling” featuring a soldier raised by two lesbian activists is the best example—the Army is back to trying to recruit spirited white men.

On the heels of this latest advertising push, the Army also sent out a letter to thousands of former soldiers who were kicked out over their refusal to get the experimental COVID vaccines. The letter announces that soldiers who received a dishonorable or other-than-honorable discharge over the vaccine can apply to have their records corrected. It also opens the door to these soldiers re-enlisting.

As liberals love to say: representation matters. The latest push to recruit white men and make peace with the conservative soldiers who were forced out over the COVID vaccine mandate is a sign that America’s liberal overlords find themselves in need of America’s despised “racists” and “conspiracy theorists.” Recruiting in the military has been down since 2020 and there are numerous cracks appearing in America’s ability to project power abroad.

The Destruction of the United States Is Intentional. Here’s What Will Happen Next.

For just over two and a half years, Joe Biden and/or his puppet masters (see Barack Obama, Susan Price, Klaus Schwab, etc.) have been successfully driving the United States to destruction. The plan took a four-year detour when President Trump was at the helm. Now, thanks to what many believe was a stolen election, the plan to enslave our comfy pants-clad bottoms is back on.

The commies began the operation decades ago. As Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov warned, the college professors and civil rights leaders indoctrinated — or as Bezmenov calls it, demoralized — generations of Americans and convinced them to hate their nation and, frequently, themselves. The Soviets successfully infiltrated the black communities, convinced them they were less than, and let the anger seethe into subsequent generations. That is why we see highly educated and successful black folks like the Obamas, MSNBC’s Joy Reid, and the deranged Cori Bush screaming about racism, even though they are one-percenters. If systemic racism were real, how did these poor, indentured serfs get so far?

FACT-O-RAMA! Bezmonov, a KGB defector, described the Soviets’ four-part plan to conquer the United States without firing a shot. Step 1 was “Demoralization”: Demoralize Americans to the point that they refuse to believe their eyes — like how your rabid, pink-haired sister-in-law refused to believe we were being inundated with illegal immigrant caravans when Trump was in office because NBC headlines told her it was all just a right-wing conspiracy. Two and a half years later, our major blue cities are getting crushed. She was lied to, but she still watches NBC and thinks it’s real. As Bezmenov described, she can’t tell what is real and what is not.

Watching Bezmenov lay out the communists’ plan to take over the United States — and understanding how close the plan is to being successful — may be the most important seven minutes of your life. Please watch and share this with everyone who doesn’t want to start their day with a cricket smoothie. (Read more from “The Destruction of the United States Is Intentional.

Whaddya Know? Trump Was Right About Biden Family Corruption All Along

“The president should be held accountable,” then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Sept, 24, 2019, just short of four years ago, opening a formal impeachment inquiry into then-President Donald Trump over a telephone call he made to Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who had just been elected president of Ukraine. “No one is above the law.”

Mrs. Pelosi initiated the impeachment investigation without a formal vote on the House floor by her colleagues, worried that she may put some of her swing-district members in peril on what amounted to flimsy evidence (a secondhand account from a whistleblower in the intelligence community who was not even on Mr. Trump’s call) to mount a historically partisan inquiry to oust a duly elected president.

Democrats at the time, drenched in self-adulation and righteousness, argued that if they didn’t move forward in impeaching Mr. Trump over reports he pressured Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden on corruption allegations, they would be betraying, in the words of Rep. John Lewis, the civil rights icon, “the foundation of our democracy.” (Read more from “Whaddya Know? Trump Was Right About Biden Family Corruption All Along” HERE)

Alert! The Boomers Are Fedposting (a/k/a the Feds Want to Kill You)

One of my most controversial and persistently attacked opinions is that I don’t think civil war, national divorce, or any kind of widespread political violence (at least from the Right) is coming in the foreseeable future. Normal one havers from across the country have rebuked me for this belief. My views, they said, were informed by where I lived (the San Francisco Bay Area). From this totalitarian Blue Zone, I could never appreciate just how angry red-blooded Americans really were. The Boomers, they assured me, were fedposting.

It’s true. People are angry. Everything is getting worse. Trash and vagrants litter many public spaces. If you live in a city, the traces of out-of-control crime can be found in most areas. Briefly leaving my new idyllic rural existence, I saw someone wearing a “Fuck Joe Biden” hat at Lost Gull Fish N’ Chips the other day. Everything is more expensive. When you go outside, people look like they’re going through something rough. Tattoos, drug use, obesity—impossible to escape. It seems like a lot of people have just stopped caring. Larger and larger sections of the American public are becoming demoralized.

If you listen to CNN or the FBI or leftwing magazines, there are sinister rightwing plots to violently take over the US everywhere. Yet, this doesn’t seem to end in any kind of policy concessions or compromise for rightwingers like the ones you saw for the violent Black Lives Matter rioters in 2020, only an ever-tightening noose from the security state. Rightwingers arrested for low level offenses are given decades in jail. Despite this escalation on the part of authorities, an alleged empire of violence certainly isn’t driving conservative culture today. Far more energy is devoted to consumer choices, be they successful boycotts or popular new songs.

In fact, any scrutiny at all would tell you that rightwing violence basically doesn’t exist. Rightwingers don’t have to think about it if they don’t want to, it’s already not a part of their lives. Leftwingers don’t have to change their behavior to avoid it. They have no fear of reprisal. They’re not afraid to go out in public and advocate for some of the worst things imaginable. In fact, there are exponentially more incidents of leftist violence and support for real world violence than you see on the Right. It’s just not recorded by law enforcement and not acknowledged in the media. There is a real disconnect here. Rightwingers hear radical rhetoric and see declining conditions and think this somehow translates into real world gains for their side, despite the fact that this is not the case.

The root of this disconnect is I think two fundamental misconceptions you see time and time again from rightwingers. The first is that rightwing escalation naturally matches leftwing escalation, i.e. that the situations are somehow connected. The second is that public sentiment is the driving force behind mass political change.

I think because conservatives are generally good and moral people they have trouble accepting that this stuff is fundamentally unfair. They see leftists engaging in widespread organized violence, probably the worst since the 1960s, and they assume that there must be some equal and opposite force rising to counter it. This illusion is bolstered by the numerous rightwing militias that popped up around the same time.

The groups had many well-meaning people, and they certainly looked cool, but their actions were almost exclusively confined to standing around and watching the chaos unfold. When their behavior went beyond that, they were targeted by leftwing prosecutors. It didn’t reach 1/10000th the level of violence committed by the Left during that period, by design.

Meanwhile, their leftist equivalents were on the offensive everywhere. They did billions of dollars of damage and committed hundreds of arsons and violent assaults. The death toll from the riots is still unclear (there is a great need for a comprehensive history of this period) but is generally estimated to be around 40. In short, there is basically no comparison between the two. When leftwingers are burning down buildings, operating armed checkpoints, and attacking cops, it should not suggest to rightwingers that rightwingers are on the cusp of doing the same.

The second misconception is a more deeply-rooted one. In popular culture people are inundated with an persistent image of how revolutions happen: there is some kind of offence committed by a tyrannical or illegitimate regime, the protagonist (usually a regular guy thrust into his position by forces beyond his control) can’t take it anymore and rebels, and then this rebellion finally coalesces into broad resistance and victory.

This is not how revolutions happen, at least in the modern era. Even the popular conception of the American Revolution as a popular struggle conceals the fact that it was also backed by all colonial state legislatures and huge financial interests. This was not a bottom-up affair. These were not guys who just walked in off the street. Things did not suddenly get “too bad,” leading to a spontaneous mass uprising.

What people think of today as popular revolutions were usually engineered in some way disconnected from public sentiment. The economic situation in Russia before the Russian Revolution was improving. Their WWI record was not terrible. However, social instability from the war was seized on first by Russian liberals, who were backed by British intelligence, Wall Street, and the media, to depose the Czar. Public officials and military officers refused to do their jobs.

Crises were created out of thin air by journalists, like the supposed grain shortage in Petrograd that preceded the February Revolution. Records of the period show that there was no shortage of grain entering the city. The food disruptions were caused by panic over fears of a shortage created by the media. Later, the Bolsheviks, who were given the equivalent of tens of millions of dollars by German intelligence to fund their operations, violently deposed those same liberals and created a communist regime. Again, these were not just guys who were angry and had had enough, but rather well organized and well funded groups of professionals.

What happens when you get a popular outpouring of anger that’s not backed by any kind of systemic force? It gets snuffed out by the political police.

It’s not really covered today but there were actually years of mass resistance to the Bolsheviks that were separate from and following the Russian Civil War and departure of Wrangel’s fleet. Millions of moderates and liberals who held their noses at helping the reactionary and conservative White Army during the Civil War slowly but surely realized that the temporary Bolshevik wartime restrictions on the freedoms they had so passionately demanded from the Czar were actually there to stay.

These were massive protests. Employees at the state bank refused to allow the Bolsheviks to withdraw sovereign wealth. Thousands of workers walked out in protest of Bolshevik misrule. In 1921 the secret police reported more than 150 bloody peasant revolts against Bolshevik food seizures that left the countryside on the brink of starvation. Also that year, an entire naval infantry garrison at Kronstadt rebelled against the Bolsheviks, demanding new elections. They were backed by nearby communities. The people had had enough.

And yet, all these efforts amounted to nothing. The state bank workers’ families were kidnapped and held hostage until the bankers handed over the keys to the vaults. The hungry peasants were machinegunned. The strikers were broken up with thousands of arrests by the secret police. The naval garrison at Kronstadt was annihilated with artillery and bombers, then seized by overwhelming numbers by Red Army troops. Minimal casualties were inflicted on the communists, the regime was never on the brink as it had been when facing the Whites.

Lacking any sort of systemic way to deal with their problems, the numerous post-Civil War Russian dissidents were helpless. However many issues the White Army might have had, it was a relatively organized force capable of acting like a state in miniature. They had a chain of command, they had ways to resolve internal disputes, they could set domestic and foreign policy, they had a budget and could get loans from foreign banks. It was composed of men who had prominent positions in the previous regime. If they had won the war against the Bolsheviks, they could have replaced them at the wheel of the Russian state.

The same couldn’t be said for post-White Army resistance to the Bolsheviks. Although the hungry peasants might lynch one cruel tax collector, the Bolsheviks were always guaranteed to come back with a vengeance in greater numbers. Angry workers might refuse to show up for work, but they had no other way to provide for themselves in a totalitarian state. One large military garrison might even rebel, but once they were acting on their own authority they had no way to to turn that authority into any kind of force to change the entire nation. When Wrangel’s fleet left Crimea, the last strip of Russian soil under White control, any hope of regime change sailed with him. If a state doesn’t want to collapse, it doesn’t necessarily have to.

In short, mass anger isn’t the magic key conservatives seem to think it is. That energy has to be harnessed into something productive, that can actually change the system in a positive way. If it’s not, the consequences can be horrible.

In Utah last month, FBI agents shot and killed Craig Robertson in Salt Lake City, Utah. Robinson was a retired veteran, weighed 300lbs, walked with a cane, was 74 years old, and was caring for his mentally disabled adult son who lived in his home. He by all accounts was a warm and friendly man who was eager to help his neighbors. An FBI tactical team stormed his home and shot him to death in the early hours of August 9, 2023. They claimed he had a gun at the time he was shot, though given that FBI agents were exempted from the body camera requirements placed on local police officers, we’ll likely never know.

The raid was prompted by Robertson’s posts on Facebook. Over the last few years, Robertson made several posts using his real name and face, which are so over the top that they can only be taken as humor, threatening violence against a number of public officials. He was, in short, fedposting. He was angry about the declining state of the country and blowing off steam.

Of course, no one in their right mind would take these posts as serious threats, and no reasonable person would believe that this infirm old man, who has a disabled adult son in his home, needed to be apprehended using a pre-dawn raid by a tactical team. However, and I can’t emphasize this enough, conservatives constantly forget that we are not dealing with individuals who are in their right minds or who are reasonable. They don’t want a peaceful resolution, they want to kill you and are looking for excuses to do it. The people in charge of the US right now could spend decades shooting Craig Robertsons across the country in pre-dawn raids and never tire of it. (Read more from “Alert!

It’s Time for Conservatives to Reclaim Labor Day

Labor Day has historically been a left-wing holiday, with its roots in the 19th and 20th Century labor movements. While Republicans kick-off the summer with Memorial Day, the celebration of workers has long been ceded to the Democrats. However, 2016 marked an epochal shift in America’s political alignments. It’s high time for conservatives to reject their white collar attachments and fully become the party of the working man.

During the late 19th century, industrialization was transforming the American economy. Workers faced dehumanizing working conditions, long hours, low wages, and virtually non-existent safety standards. In response, labor unions began forming to advocate for better conditions and improve the lives of workers. The first Labor Day Parade took place in New York City in September 1882 to celebrate workers’ rights, but it would be some time before the country fully recognized the holiday.

The pivotal moment came in 1886, in what became known as the Haymarket Affair. On May 1, thousands of workers took to the streets of Chicago to demand 8-hour work days. After days of violent clashes, a bomb went off on May 4 killing police and civilians alike.

The depth of radicalism in the early labor movement is an inconvenient fact for today’s left. Far from the narrative of peace and love that the modern left has written into the history books, dreams of revolutionary communism were alive and well in the capitalist West.

The Haymarket Affair galvanized radicals throughout the West. An international federation of socialist groups declared May 1 International Workers’ Day, in commemoration of the violent backlash in Chicago. The holiday later became synonymous with the Soviet Union’s effort to spark global revolution, and continues to be celebrated throughout the world. Yet sensing the radical direction the labor movement was heading, President Grover Cleveland offered an olive branch. In 1894, he signed legislation to make the first Monday in September a federal holiday for workers — Labor Day. (Read more from “It’s Time for Conservatives to Reclaim Labor Day” HERE)

‘Joe the Plumber’ Was Right About Barack Obama

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, better known as “Joe the Plumber,” passed away from pancreatic cancer this week. For those too old to remember him, Wurzelbacher, 49, became a minor political celebrity during the 2008 presidential race when he confronted Barack Obama, surely the most coddled candidate until that time, about his far-left economics.

Wurzelbacher, who worked at a small plumbing company near Toledo, believed that Obama’s redistributive policies would hurt small businesses. It was clear enough that the Democratic Party’s candidate was intent on instituting as much top-down federally managed economic control as possible. This was obvious.

Wurzelbacher’s question sparked plenty of ginned-up indignation from the left. As Byron York noted at the time, if Joe the Plumber had any unsavory events in his past, we were probably going to find out soon enough. Indeed, the same press that had allowed Obama to fabricate much of his life story jumped into action. ABC News reported that Wurzelbacher owed $1,200 in taxes, The New York Times reported that he wasn’t actually a licensed plumber, and so on.

Obama would answer Wurzelbacher’s accusation over the next couple of weeks with a torrent of platitudes and strawmen. It was clear the soon-to-be president believed we were a nation awash in breathtaking greed, inequality, and exploitation. By 2011, in a speech in Osawatomie, Kansas, Obama dropped the pretense and made a progressive case against markets, which he called a “simple” ideology that “speaks to our rugged individualism and our healthy skepticism of too much government. … And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker. But here’s the problem: It doesn’t work.” Today, regrettably, this kind of statist rhetoric runs the partisan gamut.

Obama was interested in transforming America into something distinct and new. Democrats viewed Obama as a counterrevolutionary against Reaganism. And, whereas Reagan promised Americans the power to build their own shiny cities on hills, Obama promised endless dependency and handouts. So they were right.

Democrats: The Pretend Party

Imagine a Political Party That Pretends the Following:

THEY PRETEND: Its leader – an octogenarian who didn’t campaign for office and can’t face a free press – is fit for the job.

THEY PRETEND: It’s no concern that the octo’s family received $50 million (or perhaps much more) from foreign interests while China accessed sensitive U.S. military technologies.

THEY PRETEND: Intimidating social media companies to suppress free speech doesn’t ridiculously violate the Constitution.

THEY PRETEND: You can charge a President with “election interference” to interfere with his election campaign.

THEY PRETEND: Killing American energy independence (Keystone XL, etc.) on its leader’s first day in office didn’t spur massive inflation, food insecurity, bank failures, supply chain problems, inflation and overall economic malaise.

THEY PRETEND: Opening the borders to Mexican cartels doesn’t kill 100,000 or so Americans each year, from Fentanyl to organized gang crime in every city in America.

THEY PRETEND: Opening the borders to battalions of Chinese, military-age males won’t lead to disaster.

THEY PRETEND: That Crimea and Ukraine were invaded because of their party’s strong security posture.

THEY PRETEND: That Iran’s terroristic, mass-murdering regime deserves nuclear weapons.

THEY PRETEND: That the withdrawal from Afghanistan was perfect, and if it wasn’t – it was someone else’s fault.

THEY PRETEND: That experimental and untested vaccines can – and must – be mandated by the federal government to demonstrate its control of your body.

THEY PRETEND: Women don’t make up a gender, but a belief.

THEY PRETEND: Men can have babies and women can have dongles.

THEY PRETEND: Children can suddenly decide to change their gender – permanently – without consequences.

THEY PRETEND: That an abortion at 38 weeks for a healthy woman and a healthy child constitutes a form of health care. (Note: no one in any party supports – or has ever supported – risking the life of a Mother during a troubled pregnancy. No NICU Doctor would tell you otherwise.).

THEY PRETEND: That trans ideology is, and always has been, a healthy adjunct to human society and civilization.

THEY PRETEND: That Carbon Dioxide (CO2) – the basis of photosynthesis and all life on Earth – is bad for the Earth.

THEY PRETEND: That CO2, plant food that all of us animals exhale, is a pollutant.

THEY PRETEND: That restricting America’ access to energy while China builds a thousand coal plants a year, will help U.S. national security.

THEY PRETEND: That restricting tiny levels of Co2 outweighs the impact of the sun, volcanoes, and wildfires that blot out the sun over multiple continents.

THEY PRETEND: That its utterly corrupt DOJ and FBI – which forged FISA warrants; illegally gave political contractors and Democrat lawyers access to our country’s most sensitive national security databases; covered up various crimes by Democrat leaders while prosecuting Republicans; well, that that’s all fine and none of it needs reform.

THEY PRETEND: That the Russia Collusion Hoax, the Ukraine Bribery Impeachment, and countless other frauds weren’t coordinated by their party’s leaders.

THEY PRETEND: That Adam Schiff – who told countless lies to the American people over many years – is a hero.

THEY PRETEND: That they honestly took their Oath of Office to uphold the Constitution, a document they wholly reject.

THEY PRETEND: That the Communist takeover of their party, which has involved rigging elections and imprisoning political opponents for complaining about it, won’t be catastrophic for all of us. Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians and Independents.

THEY PRETEND: That the instigator, Barack Obama isn’t the real president and serving in an unconstitutional third term.

In the 19th Century, the Democrats waged a Civil War so they could have slaves.

In the 20th Century, the Democrats supported Jim Crow and the KKK.

In the 21st Century, inner-city kids of every race, especially African-American, have suffered continuously under Democrat rule.

The Democrat Party Hates America.

If Saying an Election Is Stolen Is a Crime, Why Isn’t Stacey Abrams in Prison?

The fourth and latest round of indictments against former President Donald Trump suggests that constitutionally protected actions such as questioning election results, asking for phone numbers, and encouraging voters to watch TV are now indictment-worthy acts of conspiracy. If claiming an election is stolen is truly a crime, as prosecutors and grand jurors in Trump’s Georgia case suggested on Monday, failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams should be behind bars.

Abrams lost the race for governor in Georgia in 2018 to then-Secretary of State Brian Kemp by 1.4 percentage points. Due to the small margin of victory, Abrams refused to formally concede her loss because she believed the election was “tainted” which led to the “disinvestment and disenfranchisement of thousands of voters.”

In her “non-concession speech,” the Democrat admitted that Kemp “will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial election” but stopped short of officially agreeing that she lost.

“To be clear, this is not a speech of concession. Concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper. As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede,” Abrams said. (Read more from “If Saying an Election Is Stolen Is a Crime, Why Isn’t Stacey Abrams in Prison?” HERE)

Criminalizing Christianity: March Toward Ideological Totalitarianism May Land Believers Behind Bars

As society navigates the percolating intensity of the culture wars, the fragility of freedom and liberty is ardently being tested. Nations predicated upon these ideals have begun to allow the erosion of what was once sacrosanct at the whim of emotive impulses and self-indulgent cultural shifts.

From arrests and legal battles to fines and potential prison time, we’re increasingly watching people face penalties for speech and the expression of personal ideals. The criminalization of truth is particularly perplexing amid a renaissance of toxic relativism, yet it’s an arduous reality.

Take, for instance, Matthew Grech from the Southern European nation of Malta. Mr. Grech, a former LGBTQ activist, is facing potential jail time. His offense? He’s accused of advertising conversion therapy, an attempt to change a person’s sexual identity or proclivities.

Mr. Grech merely appeared in a media interview detailing his journey of leaving the LGBTQ lifestyle behind and embracing Christianity. But with Malta banning conversion therapy, he quickly faced some troubling legal issues.

“Last year, I was invited to share my story on a program and answer questions about so-called conversion practices,” Mr. Grech recently told me. “And I mentioned an organization … that supports men and women who leave LGBT and an organization that promotes a biblical sexuality.” (Read more from “Criminalizing Christianity: March Toward Ideological Totalitarianism May Land Believers Behind Bars” HERE)
