The Task Ahead

 Can Dirt Save the Earth? - The New York Times

The election that seems prescient to so many looks rather irrelevant when the greater issues of the day are presented. The election has no bearing on the civil unrest that has risen up in the past few months.

Antifa/BLM/Revcom (ABR) does not evaporate after the election. These violent Marxists are a permanent part of American society until the people themselves drive them out of the public square.

That is the responsibility of the individual and groups of individuals everywhere. Neighborhood watches never had a more important or purposeful duty than to defend the people and property of their suburban neighborhoods from these Marxist groups sent out to intimidate the average American.

Don’t Live Your Life In a Bubble

Dear Younger Generations;

I am writing to the younger generation. When you become an old-timer like me, anyone younger is of the younger generation. My focus is on the slightly more than half of the population of the U.S. who are younger than the age of 40, but this message is for those older as well. I write this because I, as a scientist, am very worried about what has become of the human species. In just a few short months, we have seen the species devolve into a panic-driven, irrational, hysterical species.

Much of this hysteria has been forced upon us by people who were elected to represent us, not dictate. Not all have gone this route but most have. They now seem to be only serving themselves.

Theaters may be closed but we certainly get to see much grandstanding from these people on a constant basis. Their main message is that THEY will decide all risks for society.

Comment on "Invasion of the New Normals"

From "Corona-Totalitarianism" To The Invasion Of The "New Normals ...

Rick has left a new comment on your post "Invasion of the New Normals":

I do not understand how any conservative minded person could be friends with those others. They are so far into the intellectual hinterlands they may as well be aliens. Yet they are tolerated, even to become friends.

These persons didn't radicalize overnight. Sure, in the example of the college student, they go just as you raised them but they return four years later barely recognizable: even censuring you as the chief antagonist in their measly lives. Even then the process took time measured in years.

It was your tolerance which diminished your ability to at least realize the seriousness of the matter if not altogether preventing you from seeing the change. You rationalized that it wasn't that bad, it is only a phase in them, they'll snap out of it. And when they didn't, nay, that they rallied ever more for 'the cause', you retreated to a forlorn remembrance of what once was. But you tolerated.

People terrorized, even murdered in cold blood. Stores looted, cities burned. Law enforcement taunted and pushed into retreat. Fear taking root in the people. Because they are tolerated.

Now we have whole generations infecting the country with that which we had formerly fought tooth and nail. And those generations were of us. I do not believe these are our last days. I believe in the strength of America. But Americans have to snap out of their stupor.

UNBELIEVABLE! All Enemies, Foreign and Domestic”: An Open Letter to Gen. Milley: If the commander in chief attempts to ignore the election’s results, you will face a choice.

 President Donald Trump holds a news conference at the White House on Aug. 10.

Dear General Milley: 

As chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, you are well aware of your duties in ordinary times: to serve as principal military advisor to the president of the United States, and to transmit the lawful orders of the president and Secretary of Defense to combatant commanders. In ordinary times, these duties are entirely consistent with your oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”

We do not live in ordinary times. The president of the United States is actively subverting our electoral system, threatening to remain in office in defiance of our Constitution. In a few months’ time, you may have to choose between defying a lawless president or betraying your Constitutional oath. We write to assist you in thinking clearly about that choice. If Donald Trump refuses to leave office at the expiration of his constitutional term, the United States military must remove him by force, and you must give that order.

Pittsboro Confederate flag owner forces down BLM billboard ...
 “I told them the 31st of August that sign better be gone, because Sept. 1, if that sign’s not down, they’re going to hear my chainsaw running,”

As one Black Lives Matter billboard is coming down in Pittsboro, another is going up in Raleigh, says a social-justice advocate involved in both projects.

Kerwin Pittman, founder of the nonprofit Recidivism Reduction Educational Program Services Inc. (RREPS), said he’s not surprised the Pittsboro billboard erected last month next to a Confederate flag on U.S. 64 Business didn’t last long.

The contract with Lamar Advertising Co. was supposed to be for a full year, until next July, but Sam White, the owner of the Confederate flag, didn’t want the black billboard with the white letters spelling “Black Lives Matter” on his land.

Facebook Allows ANTIFA-Style Group to Organize a ‘White House Siege’ on Their Platform

The tech giant Facebook is allowing an ANTIFA-style group to organize a potentially violent “White House siege” next month on their platform.

 “On September 17, 2020, we will lay siege to the White House. And we will sustain it for exactly fifty days. This is the #WhiteHouseSiege,” the group Adbusters wrote to advertise their event on their Facebook page. “We need your voice of wisdom and expertise to pull off a radically democratic toneshift in our politics.”
