There have been a lot of times when I have been ready to step off the porch and take up the torch of American freedom, but always I have been counseled that I am jumping too quick. Okay, I am the sort of barroom brawler that you would expect of oilfield trash, so my temper is often too short and my feet too quick to move, but as I have grown older, I have learned to take good counsel from others and submerge my more spontaneous instincts.
And, in the past, they have been right, it was too early, but that does not mean that the injustices weren't real, or that they didn't deserve a response, only that few others would have reacted the way I would and I would have been standing out there by myself, with no sympathy, with no support, just swinging alone and ridiculed by those who should have been standing next to me. Which harkens back to the concept of the initial Declaration of Independence, when it was understood that they either hung together or they would surely hang separately.
There is a moment when a government becomes so corrupt that it can no longer be tolerated by the people and I suggest that we are there. It is much more openly corrupt today than it has ever been. The Democrat Party is literally at war with the Republican President, not just angry at him, not just disappointed they didn't win, they have decided that he cannot be president. Well, what does that mean? When has that ever been true in American political history? It is exactly the reaction they found incomprehensible when they accused Trump of refusing to recognize the election if he lost.
The gloves are off. The media has openly chosen sides and are operating as a publicity machine for the coup. Understand that, they are providing aid and comfort to the conspirators to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States. Words don't have the power to convey the level of treason that is being played out before our eyes, in the headlines, with absolutely no repercussions from the Republicans in office. NONE.
But, at some point it stops being THEIR government and we have to step in and reclaim it, we have to decide what traitors will be allowed to get away with. It is our money they are wasting, it is our rules they are violating, it is our government they have commandeered and turned against us. Trump is irrelevant, people get hung up on not wanting to support Trump. Trump exposed them and their attitudes toward us, the people, the ones being forced to pay taxes to this money-laundering operation we call the U.S. Congress.
And, yeah, I will listen to those voices a little longer and let Trump and his administration try and deal with this corruption, but I don't have any expectations for his success. It is too far down the road, the mid-level bureaucrats have full control and they protect their own and punish their detractors. Mike Cernovich is catching all kinds of flak for pointing out that McMasters is a traitor and a plant.
Matt Bracken called it out right the other night on Hagmann, if you bothered to listen to the broadcast. You put Comey, Mueller and Rosenstein together and you find them in massive rebellion against the rule of law, just simply disregarding felonies and then McMaster comes along as a strong ally and reinstates Susan Rice's security clearance. When asked about it he said it was normal to do that. Well, Susan Rice is not a "normal" person and has not acted in a "normal" way in office, so, NO, he didn't have to renew that security clearance and shouldn't and having done so, he put himself in the "corrupt" category.
Where this goes past the government is these security leaks, these unmaskings, is putting this nation, meaning the ground I own, the people I love, in danger from outside forces. Open rebellion among the cities and states that claim "sanctuary" status for criminals are putting the property I own and the people I love in danger. Allowing jihadists into the nation out of some self-serving idea of compassion (understanding that is all propaganda) places the property I own and the people I love in danger. Just because it has not yet visited me personally, doesn't mean that it doesn't affect me.
The whole idea of a nation with armed forces is to protect all of that and if they either will not or cannot, then it is up to me to decide when I need to do so for myself. That is the part where the enemies of freedom have made so many gains, where this nation has been allowed to turn to a Soviet-style system, it is in accepting the idea that the government has to do all of these things for us and then all they have to do is refuse.
So, that's what you have to do for yourself, figure out how much corrupt government you are willing to pay for. You have to decide whether the collectivists in this nation are going to complete the conversion, or if you are going to stand up and deny them their prize. It's not like these questions are going to be asked of you sometime in the future, they are being asked of you today. Every time you sit by and watch another Hillary conspirator get her security clearance back after committing felonies against the security of this nation, you have to ask yourself these questions. One day the answer will be different from today and then it is time to do something.
Who are the people who are watching the crimes take place without consequence in society? They are the railroad employees, the truck drivers, electricians, mechanics, garbage collectors, etc. Now, ask yourself who it is that makes life possible for those who commit those crimes against this nation? Without breaking the law or hurting anyone you have the incredible power of persuasion at your hands (literally). All you have to do is one day decide that you are going to make things difficult for those who would gladly and enthusiastically put you in jail and destroy your life for nothing other than coming up against them politically.
