The New Civil War

For the last 100 years – and, especially for the last 8 years under President Obama – more and more Americans have become feckless dependents of government.

They may be rich, middle class or poor. They may depend on government benefits, or on special favors written into our laws and regulations. Or they may be politicians and bureaucrats and government workers, deciding the fates of other people and taking paychecks a good deal larger than what most of them could get in the private sector. They may be journalists taking cash payments from the CIA, or billionaires with extensive government contracts.

And they are indeed feckless. They gladly believe and spread the most ridiculous things on zero evidence. For example, they choose a criminally dishonest politician (Hillary Clinton) to be president. When she doesn’t quite win the election, they gladly believe and spread rumors that the guy who did win is a Russian spy – on zero evidence, again – and chant “F*ck [him]!” at important political conventions.

On the other side are ordinary Americans who more-or-less believe in God, common sense, and supporting themselves through work. Again, they may be rich, middle class or poor. They choose 2 business people in a row to be president. The most recent one might not be a great role model in some ways, but at least he says sensible things in a forthright, unafraid manner. When he wins the election, he sets himself to the task of reviving America’s economy and manufacturing base – only to be undermined by the vast army and bureaucracy of the feckless government dependents, spreading their nonsense.

It’s a mortal conflict. And one side knows it: the feckless government dependents. Because America is fast reaching the point where it can’t afford to support them any longer. They, the cancer, are about to kill the host. They, the cancer, must be controlled and cut back – so that the rest of America can survive, and perhaps revive a little.

They, the feckless government dependents, know it deep-down. And, being out-of-control like any late-stage cancer, they are desperate to deny it and to continue a system – their own system – that promises to extract every last drop of life and treasure that can be extracted from normal Americans.

It’s Producers vs. Looters. Understand that the Producers are people of all classes and walks of life. Likewise, the Looters are people of all classes and walks of life.

And so we arrive at the political struggles of the last seven months. President Trump isn’t perfect. I did not support him. I still don’t support him, whenever and wherever I may disagree with him. But, somehow (and although I never wanted it), he became a leader for the Producers – or at least for the opponents of America’s looting, criminal Establishment. Imperfect Mr. Trump is the president we’ve got. And the vast army and bureaucracy of the feckless government dependents are determined to destroy him.

Thus the endless, utter nonsense they spew each day. I’m not sure what to do about it. I know that supporting Trump blindly will not help. But tolerating nonsense will also not help.

The only thing I know how to do, that might help in some tiny way, is to keep telling the truth as I see it unfolding around me.

Or posting links.

Schlichter sums it up well: “Someone came to Washington who wasn’t part of the club, and that’s intolerable. So they are desperate to expel him, and by extension, us. Every day will be a crisis, every action he takes will be the worst thing that has ever happened, and every step towards keeping his promises a crime.”

Each day, let us dedicate ourselves anew to rejecting the nonsense. And to offering truth, in its place.

  1. Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert and who predicted Trump’s win when Trump first announced, has explained what is happening – it’s persuasion. He has pointed out that most people are not logical and analytical but rather are persuaded based on their emotions. I differ in that I think that it depends on the subject. For example, people can be very analytical about their job but personal relations are a different matter.

    Adams asserts that Trump is a master persuader. He gives a lot of reasons and examples but whether he is correct in the details his overarching contention is borne out by Trump’s astonishing success.

    The take away? Ignore the tweets and his supposed flaws. Judge him on the results. Not the immediate reactions but what happens over time. That’s why elections are two years apart.

  2. For years, the Democrats whined that the Republican Party was being controlled by “an extremist fringe.” Now, we see a Democrat Party that cravenly indulges its most insane elements on the left and it passes more or less without comment.

  3. V, I have never seen or heard the phrase “left wing extremist” in the MSM.

    Now, “right wing extremist” is very common.

  5. Great post on a very serious condition.

    The tipping point is at hand:

    They may be rich, middle class or poor. They may depend on government benefits, or on special favors written into our laws and regulations. Or they may be politicians and bureaucrats and government workers, deciding the fates of other people and taking paychecks a good deal larger than what most of them could get in the private sector. They may be journalists taking cash payments from the CIA, or billionaires with extensive government contracts.

    That is why Trumpism has to prevail. If we are going to turn this socialist money pit around, we must start producing something more than “services.”

    Trump is a billionaire from selling services in golf resorts, hotels, casinos and condos. He has specialized in taking from the other rich and pocketing the profits. It works.

    But real production occurs when a tangible product passes through the value added process from raw material to finished goods. Passing money around through services eventually maxes out. Growing food doesn’t.

    Trump has got Saudi Arabia on line to buy nearly $1 Trillion in American made defense stuff over the next decade. The more they can police their part of the world, the less it costs the US taxpayer to send our military to do it.

    We should have 10 times the billionaires we have. But, because of the monetary, regulatory and fiscal policy of the past 40 or 50 years, the US government has engaged in manipulation of the supply and cost of money in the grand belief that money is wealth and wealth can be programed and controlled like a satellite. It is a notion of outrageous conceit.

    Money measures wealth. Nothing more. In order for it to be fungible, it has to have a stable unit of worth. The Medici understood this and so did the great bankers that followed them

    Government benefits are pure credits drawn a bit upon ourselves, but largely upon our posterity. The only way to fix our dilemma is through stable money, moderate taxes and commonsense regulations that permit the economy to create wealth.

    Margaret Thatcher said it best:

    “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money [to spend].”

  6. The term on the “dissident right” is “Cold Civil War”: “good whites” punishing “bad whites”.

    “Good whites” don’t like “bad whites” and use their position in gov’t, the culture, and in business to mete out punishment. While that sounds nutty, their pronouncements (e.g. deplorables) and policy preferences (e.g. mass immigration) confirms it.

    The moronic governor of Colorado is pulling out all the stops trying to prevent the deportation of a man who was mistakenly paroled after serving a few years of a 100-year sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping. After the release, he behaved himself but was imprisoned in 2014 after bureaucrats figured out their error. The gov. pardoned the man, hoping to derail his deportation. His accomplice is still in prison serving his 98-year sentence.

    The Gov. is distressed by the emotional toll on the robber’s family.

    While I might be sympathetic to the prisoner if he were a citizen, I am appalled that a governor and the establishment will move heaven and earth on behalf of a foreigner despite the certainty that there are countless citizens in prison for lesser crimes that are just as likely to behave after release.

    I’d also bet that there are plenty of citizens barred from various opportunities due to an old felony conviction that will never be pardoned no matter how decent and wonderful they’ve been since release.

    What a message: if you’re a citizen, tough. If you’re an immigrant, legal or illegal, convicted of a violent crime, state governors will make it their mission to keep you – provided you’re not white.

  7. for many years the goal of the left in the united states has been to get enough people on the dole to out vote the people that work. that is what the colonization is for. as long as the working people allow the politicians to confiscate a greater portion of their income each year it is inevitable that they will succeed.

  8. […] Second and probably more important, it consumes DOJ and FBI resources that could and should be used to look elsewhere. And that’s the point of the thing. Democrats don’t want anyone looking at their horrific scandals. Having a special counsel on the comparatively scandal-free Trump, instead of themselves, is a huge coup. As in, coup d’etat against a lawfully elected President. […]
