Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter when the
Promise of a brave new world unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?

We had everything before us, we had nothing before us.

In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

“Transgender Satanist Anarchist” wins GOP Nomination for Sheriff in Cheshire County, New Hampshire

From the “God’s Official Party” (GOP) files.

On September 13, 2020, the New York Post reported that:

Aria DiMezzo calls herself a “transsexual Satanist anarchist,” and someday soon, she hopes her New Hampshire county will call her “Sheriff.”

DiMezzo is already beating the odds, winning the GOP nomination in the sheriff’s race despite her libertarian leanings, her title of “High Priestess of the Reformed Satanic Church,” and her decidedly non-law-and-order campaign slogan: “F–k the Police.”

Well, at least (s)he isn’t an Orthodox Satanist like the Democratic candidate.

And, besides, the Christian guy who’s running as a Libertarian has no chance of winning.

America Is Over: Let’s Just Split Into Different Countries

Left-wing fear and anger. Right-wing cultishness and resentment.

Can the two inhabit the same country for much longer?

For a variety of reasons that I don’t have the time to go into as I post this, I fully believe that the map and the flag that have stayed the same since 1959 may well start changing in the next five years.

New states and, quite possibly, new countries may well be taking shape. Yes, it will be messy, and there may well be blood. But I fully believe wonderful things will come of this as well.

This is an excellent guest column by Chuck Bonfig in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Sorry, but There’s No “War on Cops” (Updated for 2020)

Governments lie. And the police are the business end of the government, so they, by definition, lie.

Foodforthethinkers's Blog

According to the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial Fund, there were fewer cops killed in 2018 than in 1916 … and two-thirds as many as in 1975.

And police work is not even among the 10 most dangerous professions. And according to this article, only half of these on-the-job deaths were homicides.

The Tom Joad Test

By William Norman Grigg (1963-2017)

When you see a cop — or, more likely, several of them — beating up on a prone individual, do you instinctively sympathize with the assailant(s) or the victim?

If it’s the former, you’re an authoritarian, irrespective of your partisan attachments or professed political philosophy.

If it’s the latter, you’re an instinctive libertarian, whether or not you are consistently guided by that impulse in your political decisions.

It may later be demonstrated that the figure on the receiving end of the beating had committed some horrible crime. However, such a disclosure wouldn’t invalidate the results of the Tom Joad Test, because that test reveals a subject’s default assumptions about the relationship between the individual and the state.

Do you assume that the state is entitled to the benefit of the doubt whenever its agents inflict violence on somebody, or do you believe that the individual — any individual — is innocent of wrongdoing until his guilt has been proven?

This could be considered a reverse application of Lenin’s famous political formula, 
kto kogo? — broadly translated as “Who does what to whom?” Lenin and his followers sought and acquired the power to be the “Who” in that formula, which meant that millions of those consigned to the “whom” category were imprisoned and slaughtered.

Ironically, many law-and-order conservatives come uncomfortably close to Lenin’s view of the state when they reflexively take the side of agents of state coercion — the “who” in the typical encounter between police officer and citizen. The American view of rights, however, is overwhelmingly weighted on behalf of the latter, even when the “who” is a winsome and well-dressed policeman, and the “whom” is a scruffy and unappealing individual.

Were the Lockdowns 10 Times More Deadly than COVID?

This is NOT an endorsement of Trump. He did A LOT to spread the fear of COVID and promote the economic lockdowns back in March.

However, this study, which speaks favorably of Trump, concludes that the cost in – among other tragic things – depression, suicide, alcoholism, drug addiction, and stress related illnesses resulted in 10 times the number of life-years lost than were from the actual virus.

If You Want to Survive this Election with Your Mental Health Intact, Turn Off the “News” and Social Media Now

By Charles Hugh Smith

Propaganda doesn’t have to change your mind to be effective– all it has to do is disable your critical thinking by blinding you with rage, misdirecting your attention, generating an “Other” that acts as a target for projected frustration, creating either-or thinking, splinter the working / middle classes into divisive “tribes” supported by echo-chamber social media and addict you to constant drips of carefully tailored emotional derangement.”

This CHAZ Idea is Growing on Me

By John Nolte at Breitbart.

Even though the creators of CHAZ didn’t do it right, I firmly believe secession will become a very real thing after 2020.

Neither side will accept defeat in the election. And a goodly percentage of the population – perhaps more than half – are tired of being tyrannized.

Expect new states and very possibly new countries to form on a map that hasn’t changed since 1959. (And the “lower 48” have been this way since 1912.)

No Matter Who Wins in 2020, There Will Be Blood

By William L. Gensert at the American Thinker.

This was written in September 2019, well before the BLM/Antifa riots set America’s cities aflame. And it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
