The heeling is heading our way. Over the last few days I took a little time off from the 'net. Caught a re-run of Rumpole of the Bailey. "The Golden Thread" that runs through English common law. Good stuff, not taught in school nowadays. Too bad, really. Then I tried to catch up on all the goings on, and boy did somebody kick over the chamber pot ant hill. I'm barely keeping up.
"Not since Abraham Lincoln was smuggled into Washington has anyone assumed the presidency of a more divided and angry nation than Joe Biden. He brings with him a satchel full of scandals and an agenda of mumbled promises. His pledge to be the great healer rings hollow. His recent dishonest comments concerning Trump’s advocacy of violence at the Capitol only proves the point." "The elites have no idea how angry millions of Americans are." Quotes from above article in "free Republic" (see the link). Boy, there are some irritated people out there.
"Dear idiots, you’re like the wife with her arm in a sling and both eyes blackened telling her husband “Please don’t say anything to Joe. He’ll be mad.” Says woman and immigrant to America, now a citizen. "The 2020 election was a fraud — and Congress including the Republicans — are cool with that." To quote another blogger.
Meanwhile inside the Nation's Capital ….. it is, to quote Rumpole, a question of rloyalty.
An unscalable fence is being errected around the Peoples' Palace of Democracy Capital Building. The reason is shown here in a file photo:
“Yesterday was a horrible and shameful day in our history,” Said nobody in regards to the bombs planted by the woman in the file photo pardoned by Clinton and now serving on the board of directors of BLM. McCarthy said of the takeover of the Capitol.” Additional protective fencing for our loyal Senators and Representatives in Congress; information is at this link.
Here we see the Danger! involved in that event that left zero buildings looted or burned, not even a shoe store:
Sorry. Those darned Russians again. You know what they did last election. Too bad they couldn't cover that story like CBS did. Or even the Associated Press. Did you notice there were no police shooting of protestors then? That was the perfectly acceptable storming of the US Capital. This is the one that terrorized those loyal to the incoming corrupt election rigging administration.
Here it is, and terrifying too:
Sorry, wrong terror.
LARPing protestors staying inside the ropes.
Terrifying. Our fearless leaders, ready to send troops to Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa and the borders of Russia (not to China though, that might upset the Big Guy):
"We have Congress critters being hustled in panic down the escape hatch and out through the tunnels for their own protection… from outraged American voters." As one blogger put it. How DARE she say that. Here's the words of provocation:
“The most violent of the most violent statements was (drumroll), "Together we are determined to defend and preserve government of the people, by the people and for the people.”” Ann Althouse, via Don Surber.
How dare he say punch back twice as hard we are determined to defend and preserve the government of the people, by the people, for the people. Here we see how acceptable peaceful protests take place:
NYC marchers Notice the police kept them all safe. NYC free press reporting
Peaceful protest by unorganized and unled Antifa. Who have no outside form of funding (and are a myth according to Biden) before Wednesday's scheduled rally in Portland. The House of Representatives, led by Speaker Pelosi, has its own security detachment and refused additionl federal security. Let me quote some of our national leaders on protests:
Those didn't age well. Rember though, police protection is for those who deserve it, as you saw in NYC.
Here in the Forbidden City we see members of the elite Praetorian Guard secret service and local police escorting a smiling member of the loyal senate past angry rabble voters alledged to be involved in the mostly peaceful protests Wednesday.
There are going to be consequences for those actions; I'm sure there will be equal justice under the law, like we saw out West:
Small random selection of those arrested in Portland at BLM-antifa riots and violent protests in 2020. More than 90 percent of the 1,000 plus cases have been dropped by the prosecutor. Do you remember how many protesters from the Trump inaguration in 2016 were brought to trial?
Meanwhile the head of the flight attendants union says 'rioters' should not be allowed to fly. Rumours are that some are already on the No Fly List. I wonder if any are Muslim?
On other great news, Mozilla, maker of FireFox, says: This week we saw the culmination of a four-year disinformation campaign orchestrated by the President. Four whole years? I wonder why no one told us. I'm looking @ you NYT. If only Congress had known. No worries for the future, Mozilla is getting ready to launch operation "little red book" to reeducate the masses. To quote them:
"By all means the question of when to deplatform a head of state is a critical one, among many that must be addressed. When should platforms make these decisions? Is that decision-making power theirs alone?"
I wonder what other heads of state are thinking regarding their ability to communicate with their own citizens and if that ability should be in the hands of an American company listed on the NYSE/NASDAQ; one that employs thousands of H1B visa holders whose loyalty is unquestioned by corporate management. No word on how loyal they are to the USA, or any other country; or if any of that is going to affect shareholder valuations either.
"Changing these dangerous dynamics requires more than just the temporary silencing or permanent removal of bad actors from social media platforms. Additional precise and specific actions must also be taken:Reveal who is paying for advertisements, how much they are paying and who is being targeted."
Find your own way over to their blog, no need for me to help them.
Yes, it's a question of loyalty. Like when multiple news organizations and social media companies suppressed news about Hunter's Ukraine income and his family's China connections. None of those who suppressed that news have been deplatformed.
Parler has not only been deplatformed from the Apple App store, it was deplatformed by Amazon (AWS), and their email provider, and their lawyers. "Additional precise and specific actions must also be taken:Reveal who is paying for advertisements, how….." said Mozilla, and it looks like a number of people followed instructions.
That’ll keep them in line. Notice the narrative of the media that kept us informed of the mostly peaceful blah, blah, blah all summer long?
Further breaking news, from the evil lord of evil or whatever name he goes by:
"A group of developers latched onto the Press Release that Twilio put out at midnight last night. ….Turns out it was all of the security authentications that were used to register a user. This allowed anyone to create a user, and not have to verify an email address, and immediately have a logged-on account…. Well, because of that access, it gave them access to the behind the login box API that is used to deliver content — ALL CONTENT…." RTWT
Back to commentary:
Has your company been declared Non-Essential due to the China Virus, by Google, Mozilla, guilt by association by those you are paying to provide you a service? How does your bank feel about your social media score? Yes, China's policies are comming to America, and it won't look like that Eddie Murphy movie either. I can't wait for Kamala and the creation of the Department of Hate – to monitor everyones speech to keep us safe.
You see, it is a queston of loyalty. If you are wondering where your government officials stand, just listen and look:
Now before you get too down, remember, Wednesday was the day we celebrate the Epiphany. Let this get you in the spirit. From the Governor of my former state of residence:
Well, I'm sure we won't be seing this:
Now if those don't inspire you remember this:
Day 15 to slow the spread eleven of the New Year. And day 301 of "15 days to slow the spread".
I wonder whose resurection they will celebrate this Easter? Reporting from outside the walls of the Fobidden City, your correspondent, Fred.

Priceless. The four captioned heroines. You may also enjoy five term President Donald W. Obama, recently with an account on Twitter. Three faces ingeniously merged as one.

Thanks, I’ll make a correction.
Great job, Fred! I was smiling all the way through 🙂 The power of satire and wittiness is underrated in this time of seemingly endless addiction to outrage.
Well, from the FBI to Twitter to Amazon to CitiBank to federal courts to Google…. they have made it abundantly clear that they will crush you swiftly and mercilessly for nothing more than wrongthink. The resistance to Trump has resulted in the curtain and the masks falling and we now see the whole system is rigged. There is no way to take it on— even politically or legally— without being crushed. There is nothing left to do at this point except to throw sand in the gears.
“There is no way to take it on— even politically or legally— without being crushed. There is nothing left to do at this point except to throw sand in the gears.”
Yes Evan, all that is left is some form of guerilla warfare. From what I have learned about warfare that is what’s needed when the power balance is highly asymmetric.
The question is, what does asymmetric warfare look like when it’s a culture war, and words and images and narratives are the weapons? Viral memes are a good start, and more decentralized non-corporate news media. Those things are already in motion. Reactions to the increasingly obvious and severe censorship will create more forms of resistance. The speed of change is increasing.
Evan Paisley, sad, frustrating and demoralizing as these times can be, I can’t give up hope, can’t give in and resign myself to being crushed. Maybe I’m naive or too simple-minded but for instance, I’m heartened by Fred’s piece and this blog, heartened there’s an alternative to Tw!tter called GAB that has its own servers from what I understand, and people are dropping the former and subscribing to the later by the millions. I’m also glad some of the colluders’ stocks have been hit, but of course what goes down often comes back up eventually.
Anyway, I can’t throw in the towel just yet and will wait patiently for a reckoning, wait for the days when at least a few of the smug, scheming, greedy, lying, lazy, prevaricating, criminal assholes get what they so richly deserve. They’ve had to lie and cheat to get where they are and I can still hope there’s an earthly judgement of some sort (while not expecting anything from the US Inferior Court) that will settle the score.
Very good article. I suspect that the majority of Trump supporters are biding their time, hope upon hope giving him a chance to pull a rabbit out of the hat before the 20th.
If that doesn’t happen any optimism left will be gone, replaced in many by something no-one wants, nothing to lose despair. That will be the time ‘guerilla warfare’ for want of a better description, might start. Probably activating plans already in place and likely to be non violent so as not to inflame the State. Also likely to start are state terrorists false flags.
Those of you in the States are definitely not looking at a peaceful next 4 years.
Pointing to a similar event that was underreported does not mean that we are taking this event too seriously. Shooting JFK is different than shooting me. Both are homicides but one disrupts the highest levels of govt.
Finding a scene of well behaved protesters does not mean that violence did not take place. I’m certain that the Maidan protesters had their happy moments as well. As time goes on, we get more images of serious violence, up to and including death taking place and not everything is captured on video.
No one has said violence did not take place. Thank’s for the gaslighting. Your stawmen are multiplying. JFK and Maidan, oh, wait, Maidan was a color revolution with US “Deep State” sponsorship. That, of course, would not happen here.
Video, here’s more video from a source with at least some semblance of credibility.
It’s been almost a week, where are the NYT etc reports on arrests for the deaths that were reported?
If the alleged deaths, other than the still unidentified police homicide of the young woman, were either health related or even a suicide, why is this number getting gratuitously pinned on Trump?
Fred, your youtube link is highly informative however I doubt it’ll
stay up for very long
We are not China. China has a three thousand year history and at its core, a very deep cultural identity. Such that they are the gorilla and any monkeys irritating them will be squashed. Including corrupt bankers.
The US, on the other hand, is humanity washing up against the edge of the global petri dish and the primary philosophy holding this country together is endless growth, which has reached the limits of its sustainability, especially since those skimming off the top already control the banking system and are drowning a fairly shut down economy in printed money, because that is the only game they understand.
It doesn’t matter how much information they have, when the money turns to confetti.
They can paint it any color they want, but the system really is going to explode and guess who will be holding the bag?
Judeo-Christian history is much longer than China’s – a code we still honor now 6000 plus years old? Even if one is not “religious” the wisdom expressed the 10 Commandments still make sense today.
That is a powerful history to share, as mainly expressed in Western culture. China has no common thread that reaches as long and far as the Judeo-Christian culture. Other than sheer presence on the same Middle Kingdom piece of real estate.
The current occupants of the original Forbidden City are not heirs to 3,000 years of China’s cultural history, unless you consider communist/oligarchic barbarians butchering their own people to be that history.
“The US, on the other hand, is humanity washing up against the edge….”
The actual Americans native to this land, decendents of those who tamed this continent and created this Republic, as well as those assimilated into that culture, are not represted by the millions of illegals, visa holders and generally fake American grifters who have ‘washed’ ashore here for many reasons,such as greed, oportunism, and funding of travel by ideological enemies of the Republic – home grown and foreign (which includes Communist China).
“the primary philosophy holding this country together is endless growth” Nope, but that is what the leftists sure want us to believe.
hey! you had fun with this! kudos!
Just clicked on the photo in the upper left & I’m still laughing.
I will try and do one on lil’ Justin and the brave, just and free Canada.
I, for one, will never call Biden “my President.” I will not follow any accounts of his supposed presidency. I will be ignoring news from DC until he is gone, gone, gone.
It’s embarrassing to me that so many in our country would elect a man who seems to be going into dementia and who has been shown to be a man willing to give away our country for personal financial gain.
I’m just going to be off the grid, so to speak, until I feel some sanity has reached the majority of our nation.
Good bye all here on this blog.
I’ll be spending my time watching old Westerns on television when it was easy to spot the good guys and easy to know who the bad guys were.
I am just completely sad for my two sons and four grandchildren that they have inherited this mess. The rest of my life–and I hope that is a short time–my main purpose will be to find ways to help boys and their families retain some financial security.
