In case you don’t know what condition our condition is in, the name for it is a crisis of legitimacy. Four years of seditious harassment by a “Resistance” within-and-without the US Government culminates in the janky election of a mentally incapable grifter… run by whom? Does anyone seek to know who, exactly, is pulling Joe Biden’s strings? My guess would be…duh… Barack Obama and his posse. When will he be outed? Maybe today… or next week at the latest. Heads will explode to see liberalism’s bowling trophy fall off the national mantelpiece. If you think Nancy Pelosi is running around in a hebephrenic fugue state now, just wait.

A crisis of legitimacy means that citizens have lost faith in their institutions, that is, in the armature of agreements and procedures for running this society. Do you have any idea how much damage RussiaGate did to the country? The three-year-long mind-fuck perpetrated by the highest officials of the FBI and the CIA ruined whatever was left of their reputations. Not only are citizens not safe from the powers of life-and-death vested in these agencies, but they know that officials who wield that power recklessly won’t be held responsible when acting outside the law. Are we any better now than the Russians under Leonid Brezhnev?

UkraineGate and the first Trump impeachment it spawned was a CIA operation that used CIA agent Eric Ciaramella and Intel Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson (a former DOJ RussiaGate player) to cover up the influence-peddling crimes of Joe Biden’s family behind a smokescreen of perfidy fanned over the nation by the notorious RussiaGate liar, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). The State Department assisted in that op, and now the whole country knows that they are also ethically unreliable.

In both of these gigantic flimflams, the president could not get any satisfactory scrutiny of the injuries attempted against him, because the ops were run by the very agencies needed to provide that scrutiny over unlawful official behavior. Did the DOJ and its stepchild, the FBI, show any interest in the recent voting irregularities, or is it just convenient to let it all slide so they can answer to a new president, with a clear and urgent interest in burying the matter?

Is it any wonder that a huge chunk of the population doesn’t believe the election was on-the-level? Federal law enforcement has not revealed the identities of exactly who incited the invasion of the Capitol building — and do you believe who The New York Times and CNN claim it was: white supremacist Nazis? Has it not occurred to the “winner” and his handlers that such a public mood of distrust will thunder through our national affairs going forward?

It’s late in the game but something appears to still be in play, and the Resistance is keenly aware of it: a trove of declassified documents laying out their crimes against their own countrymen. Nothing has stuck to the Resistance because they controlled the levers of adjudication. What if, under the extraordinary conditions of the moment, those levers are transferred to one arm of the government that has not disgraced itself: the military? I wrote in this blog more than once in recent years that political disorder could lead to this. Has that moment come? David Harris Jr Best Price: $43.13 (as of 07:52 EST - Details)

Thousands of troops are billeted in and around Washington DC now. Why is that? The figment of more white supremacists coming to reenact last week’s incident at the Capitol? I don’t think so. A BLM / Antifa riot, like the ones staged in cities (including Washington DC) all through the summer and fall? (Weren’t they mostly peaceful?) Or is something else up, something that will mark an epochal shift in the fortunes of the USA?

Did you catch Joe Biden on TV last night? Did his appearance fill you with the sweet, warm unction of reassurance? Or did you get the impression that I got: of a near-mummy in a state of panicky confusion, sent from his hidey-hole out to a podium to give an impersonation of someone in authority? I didn’t believe the performance for a minute. The poor schlemiel is headed straight into history’s discontinued merchandise bin. He will probably wonder what awful vanity propelled him down the memory hole as he descends into the darkness… but his memory preceded him down the memory hole and he will have forgotten how the whole thing started. His exit will be a merciful one compared to the people who trussed him up and shoved him onstage to flesh out their lame narrative.

If any group of people has ever had a legitimate right to become violent and destructive towards the government in D.C. and elsewhere it is the conservative people most likely Republican voters. Those people didn't vote for a government handout, but voted to protect their children's future and to be left alone to their own beliefs and morals.

The narrative is being changed by the magicians in politics and media from the stench and filth of the election theft and the fraud of the cover-up and refusal to investigate and forensically analyze the ballots to the problems at the Capitol Building that were likely generated by paid Antifa and BLM members and then unsuspecting and non-violent MAGA members making a mistake to follow those in the lead.

The subject matter is and has been for 100 plus years the criminal neglect of the population and especially the voting public. Americans have adapted to the criminals in D.C. (and believe me elsewhere) by making stupid and unjustifiable statements such as "It's always been this way" or "all politicians are liars or crooks." Now, coming from the liars and crooks, "let's unite and move forward." What nerve it must take to laugh in the face of Americans that have watched their cities burn, people murdered, had lives shattered, and their vote cancelled by fraud, and to tell them basically to shut up, go back to work if you still have a job and pay your bullshit taxes. I say no, hell no, we won't go. They are the ones that need to go. We haven't done anything other than try to work within the system which has obviously become criminal and out of control. This working within the system has failed to produce the necessary results in D.C. but it has demonstrated that we are the majority and we demand our voices be heard even if that takes earth shaking demonstrations of our numbers and our power !

Until this election is remedied to our satisfaction we should not participate at all with D.C. or the filthy liars they send out from there into our cities and counties. No city, county or State in this country should comply with any so-called mandate from D.C. The D.C. SWAMP has had more than enough time to correct the election process and make it impossible to defraud it. Those people think nothing of ruining our lives, sending our children off to wars that only benefit them, and forcing the views of minorities of every ilk down our throats.

Enough excuses, enough filibusters, enough double speak, enough taxation without representation. It's definitely time for a change. That change may require a major push back from we the people and we are MANY. We didn't ask for this fight. We actually went along to get along and that has only made things worse. The time has come to say "hell no" we are not taking any more abuse from D.C., and we damn sure aren't going to finance this fraud anymore. By the way, what choice do we have ? "They" intend to take it ALL from us or our descendants unless we fight back right now ! Whose country is it anyhow ?

In Truth, if you are funding D.C. you are complicit and "one of them" period. No excuses for buying the gun that will someday kill your neighbor and eventually yourself.
