LIBERALISM’S ENDLESS AGGRESSION AGAINST AMERICA

Dr. Rebane @ 9:21 am.

Thanks for fixing link . Of course you have been a leading voice on the topic for years. I am but a mere late comer. It is always good to refresh the topic from time to time. I remember well your post from 4/2019. And I miss Russ’s imput.

‘The Great Divide-an updated review’ is a great name and topic. It wasn’t that long ago that you were decried as a nutjob for even mentioning the Great Divide, which the Lefties said was non-existiant, a Right Wing fallacy made up out of thin air. Not so anymore. If nothing else, the Great Divide has been proven to exist....albeit those on the right are now considered the existential threat to our democracy, lol. It’s all our fault for not going along to get along.

It’s beginning to be my belief that Trump’s victory in 2016 was not because he was a “economic nationalist” or “it’s the economy, stupid.” Nay, I am beginning to subscribe to the theory that Trump won because of cultural issues. It just took one man to stand up and say what we all have been thinking and believing and witnessing for years before Trump.

During Biden’s ‘bi-partisan agreement’ on the infrastructure bill, it became apparent to this poster (moi) that the way the RINOS folded like a cheap suit and became instant wet noodles in a paper bag is the reason we had a President Trump. Trump did not create the Great Divide by any stretch of the imagination. He merely exposed it. And boy, did he ever expose Ali Baba and his den of 40 thieves. And Trump exposed it on purpose every chance he got.

In these ‘dark and gloomy’ times, I am heartened that there are more citizens with a vertebrate than I knew. Revolutionaries have always been unable to deal with counterrevolutionaries in the arena of ideas.

There may be some parallels here to the times leading up to the Spanish Civil War, in which Republicans and Nationalists were intermingled, lived next door to each other, with no clear cut geographic separation, at least not initially.

And this. Free speech requires that we must be able to speak our minds freely. Free speech does not mean that we can only say that with which others may agree. That is censorship. Period. This issue helps define the great divide. Those who support true free speech oppose those who seek censorship.

The divider in chief is actually bringing America together on one thing that the socialist dems hate-

One thing they bring up, drawn from Islam, strikes me as a really apt concept for describing the highly-reasoned missives by Paul Emery and Ms. Cross. Submission.

That really is the underlying tone of the outrage, that any other poster here would not cast out the Devil and give in. You need to recognize the authority of the new religion and put no other idols before it. The Message needs to be conformed to and don't pay any attention to the source (17 intelligence agencies, FAANG, The Squad, the teachers' unions). Justifying the Message is a waste of time as it is self-evident.

Submission.

Bill Tozer

Well, the group has an apt name for their organization: Indecline. Not a misnomer for the Great Divide.

Just to throw an idea out there, I was considering a general rule of thumb, let's call it

Scenes' Rules For Bureaucracy #7:

As a polity becomes more authoritarian, it's power centers tend to spawn off armed forces.

It's inarguable that the US has become more authoritarian from 1800 to 1900 to 2000, and there are certainly plenty of examples of this (state police in addition to sheriffs, KGB border troops, Division Hermann Göring).

This new 'national' DC police is an interesting variant. It's mostly been played up as an example of AOC's (who is more ambitious than consistent) willingness to play along with DNC demands, but the mere fact of it is the more interesting part. Basically, Congress wants an army.

Of course, the corollary for Rule #7 is that a power center's army will eventually become it's own power center, but that's for the future.

George Rebane

Scenes 917am - sounds like Rule #7 anticipates a congressional praetorian guard as the Capitol Police expand units beyond 'the hill'. For such a force to endure as political parties change control, it will be forced to become more than less autonomous so that its command structure doesn't succumb to the winds of politicization. And then we have to consider how the Executive will expand its existing praetorians (Secret Service). Does SCOTUS then need one for itself to keep the branches 'separate but equal'?

scenes

" Does SCOTUS then need one for itself?"

I was thinking about that. Their inability to fund force projection jamborees makes it a difficult nut to track.

There is likely another Rule for Bureaucracy hidden there, that in the long run, power centers require the ability to steer resources and funding.

My guess would be that in the medium run, you simply see the Supreme Court becoming more a vestigial part of government. Congress and the Executive branch increasingly acquire powers of each other with a merger between the two groups at some point.

George Rebane

scenes 949am - Interesting prognostication about the pre-GD trajectory of governance. The hidden bureaucracy rule you seek is already ensconced as part of Rebane Doctrine (and several other places as Golden Rule #2) - 'Them that's got the gold makes the rules.' There is never a separation between agents of force and agents of the purse, they both come hand-in-glove as agents of power.

You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!

Here we go again with lie'n Biden.

No,,,, the Sups. DIDN'T hear the cases....

"CLAIM: The Supreme Court, among other courts, heard the challenges to the 2020 presidential election results, twice.

VERDICT: FALSE. The Supreme Court declined to hear the election challenges, and never considered the evidence."

"President Joe Biden gave a speech Tuesday in support of Democrats’ controversial voting reform bill, H.R. 1/S. 1, the “For the People Act.” As Breitbart News has previously explained, the legislation “would radically change American democracy, nationalizing elections and making permanent changes to voting rules that would virtually ensure Democrats never lose another election.”"

Bill Tozer

How can we ever exist when such hogwash as Biden's fiery speech is believed by half the people?

Biden's handlers must have freaked out to learn most normal folks, including the majority of Black Americans and Hispanics, and all sane people approve of Voter ID. Time to bring out ole Sleepy Joe, shoot him up adrenalin, and shove the old fellow out there to show Americs he is fighting the truth.

Mr Tozer, your hanging question demonstrates that I have failed miserably with my readers in explaining over the years that we no longer can "exist" as a unified nation. That epoch has ended, and which way we go from here is undecided, but we are not going back to a unified constitutional nation.

My ‘exist’ was meant to be “how can we co-exist”, but it does not take away from your point or mine. Yes, you have failed miserably teaching your readers like moi, albeit I imagine some of your readers are real doozies. Myself included. Don’t be to hard on yourself, Dr. Rebane.

The question posed answers itself, be it exist or co-exist; which is we cannot.

"We are more than a year out from the midterms and Democrats are already facing an uphill climb," Ruhle began a segment on Tuesday. "President Biden just met with Eric Adams, New York City's Democratic nominee for mayor after he ran a tough-on-crime campaign. It comes as cities across the country are grappling with a serious surge in violent crime."

She continued, "Now Republicans, like former President Trump are seizing on that and trying to tie Democrats and their ‘defund the police’ messaging to heading into next claiming that messaging is the reason for the spike in crime. It's very bad news for Democrats with a razor-thin House majority and a tie in the Senate."

Ruhle invited on political scientist Rachel Bitecofer, who she noted correctly predicted a "blue wave" in 2018 and is now "sounding the alarm" about a red one next year.

what are the odds of a red wave?" Ruhle asked.

"They're excellent," Bitecofer responded.

“That epoch has ended, and which way we go from here is undecided, but we are not going back to a unified constitutional nation.”

As the late pollster Pat Cadell understood all too well there is a growing deeply concerned sentiment among voters that while there will always be an America, it may not be the United States of America.

"Our Endless Dinner With Robin DiAngelo
Suburban America's self-proclaimed racial oracle returns with a monumentally oblivious sequel to "White Fragility""

https://taibbi.substack.com/p/our-endless-dinner-with-robin-diangelo

"...Is this because DiAngelo is a demented racist, a Spencer of the suburbs, or because she’s a dunce? It feels like both. Her books are chock full of overt threats, using the language of the inquisitor. When she goes through the list of arguments people make in favor of the idea that they can or should exist beyond race, she concludes ominously, “None of these factors provides immunity.” The idea that “continually” availing oneself of DiAngeloid antiracist training is a requirement to remain above suspicion is an explicit warning. No other strategy is admissible; as she puts it, “Niceness is not antiracism.” Don’t be fooled by her Westminster Kennel Club show-Barbet hair. She writes like a cult leader or an NKVD Commissar, and if mass beheadings are in our future, expect her to hold a clipboard somewhere. ... "

The stealth invasion -

We know this is happening there because a man called Lt. Col. Matthew Burrows sent his subordinates an email spelling it out very clearly.

"Over the next few days, weeks or months," the note began, "you may see passenger aircraft on our ramp transporting undocumented non-citizens. Please review the attached public affairs guidance on the issue." Burrows’ email then instructed uniformed military personnel to hide what was happening on the base from the country they're sworn to serve.

"Do not take photographs and refrain from posting anything on social media." Lt. Col. Burrows offered no national security justification for keeping any of this secret because there is none. He just told the people who work for him not to talk.

We got this email from a whistleblower. At first, we doubted it could be real. During the last administration, the Pentagon firmly refused to protect America’s southern border. "That’s not our job," they said. "Too political, send us to Syria." And yet, according to this document, here was the very same U.S. military leadership at the Pentagon helping the Biden administration — with maximum, enforced stealth, with secrecy — to subvert the country’s core immigration laws.

‘Why must everything — from ‘Real Housewives’ to the NFL to yoga — be about race. It is toxic for America’

Remember when McDonald’s taught us, “You deserve a break today”?

Catchy jingle. Made you want to go out for a Big Mac. Today the tune American culture is singing is, “You deserve some ache today,” and it makes me want to go out for a Quarter Pounder with Hemlock.

“The Real Housewives of New York” has turned into a tiresome ongoing race spat, and has predictably been rewarded with record-low ratings. The National Football League is playing the “black national anthem.” That effort effectively rebrands “The Star-Spangled Banner” as a white national anthem and further divides America in what is supposed to be a unifying ceremony.

Even yoga is now white supremacy, according to the new book “Yoke” (yoga meets woke, I guess).

Celebrity yoga teacher Jessamyn Stanley told People, “I think that when you bring up cultural appropriation in yoga, everyone’s butthole clenches because everybody’s like, ‘Oh s—, I think I might be guilty of this,’ or, ‘I could be apart of this and that doesn’t feel good.’ ”

Good article @8:35PM, although I don't know that you can blame modern time or it's technology. 'Bowling Alone' is worth a read.

Maybe it's just the natural inclination of particularly successful countries to become empires as they accumulate diverse people via invasion, immigration, or territorial acquisition. Sometimes the empire will even last for a while, but you sure have to put the hammer down from the center. After a time, geographically segregated people tend to be able to fission off into countries, highly geographically integrated angry people result in Yugoslavia or pre-breakup India. Exciting times ahead, especially given the lack of self-sufficiency most people have.

But, ya know...Trump.
