Freedom Is on the March,
and the Elites Can't Stand It

Original Article

A glaring sign of our intelligentsia's decrepitude is their absolute lack of interest in understanding either the Brexit vote or the election of Donald Trump. With a few notable exceptions, those who claim to spend their lives doing the public "thinking" that must surely require higher faculties than possessed by common people, have shown no intellectual curiosity for the social shifts of our day. You would think people who do thinking for a living would find the events in the U.K. and the U.S. fascinating and historically compelling, if for no other reason than that neither outcome was expected by the public intellectuals themselves.

The elites don't care to understand either the Brexit vote or the election of Donald Trump. They know these events signal a reduction and threat to their power and that is what has them launching attacks. Interestingly these attacks have been counter productive because it has resulted in the awakening of many of the "deplorables."

Thank you for making this a Must Read. Not only has J.B. Shurk served us red meat and flavorful vegetables, he has provided a sweet breath of freedom for dessert. He has truly captured the marching orders and troop movement of the intelligentsia. One more thing, he has pointed a laser on the ''Boo Game'' the left uses of Russia to scare us over to their losing side. Hell no, I won't go!

Hillary has already given her answer by calling us a basket of deplorables. Then there is the Mulatto Lightgiver lamenting people who cling to God and Guns. Oh they understand all right. It is their ignorance but hubris and contempt that is driving such comments. Can't wait for 11/03/20.

One of the best things to have happened in the Trump presidency so far to my mind is that he destroyed the decades of work by the globalist Poppy Bush before Poppy died. For some reason, him witnessing the destruction of that noxious legacy of his before he died brought me great satisfaction. Also the purge of all those Saudis by the King and his CP heir also made me happy. Trump pulled the plug on a whole lot of Deep State off the books funding that most people don't realize the extent of just how important his visit to the Saudis was. Trump has done more to right the ship named America than most people realize unless they dig out the info. Doesn't surprise me the elites loathe him, for he is destroying their evil plans. Right now I do feel bad for the Brits, for they are getting treated rotten by their Parliament. I suspect Brexit to them means that after so many years of earning their allotment for being in Parliament rubber stamping Brussels, they will have to actually start doing their job again, making important decisions for the nation. If the Queen really wanted to, she could drop a well placed comment about Brexit that would light a fire under the fools now in office.

FTA - "So when the public intellectuals convince the public to vote according to their worldview, this popular election is called "democracy in action." When the public votes against the public intellectuals, this signifies that the public put the interests of the population ahead of the "thinkers" and must therefore be grounded in the old primordial goo of tribalism and hatred that afflicts the public, generally, but from which the public intellectuals can elevate us, should we simply heed their instructions." Our deep state, msm, and new world order think they have us over a barrel. Not. Look around the world and witness the many other countries where the populations are "woke".

I travel around the world and everywhere I go people ask me about Donald Trump. They're fascinated by the rise of our "man of the people," as opposed to the "professional politicians" they're used to having. As I've posted here before, there's a "Populism Movement" going on globally, as evidenced by news out of Great Britain, Hong Kong, France, Brazil and others. Around the world, Donald Trump is looked to as what others want in their leaders. They want to know how the can find their own "Donald Trump" too.

I love that word, "decrepitude." Those who are attempting to "fundamentally transform" America are pushing old Utopian ideas on those who have already figured out their plan and will resist it with everything they have. We see them for the delusional dreamers that they are. At this point in time, America was supposed to be unarmed, devoid of religion, under the control of either a radicalized dictator or a woman who was elevated to the level of Queen and who, in turn reported to the Grand Poobah of the United Nations. American taxpayers would be sending money by the ton to aforementioned Poobah who would keep most of it and send just enough to the third world ignorati to keep them quiet. Those who could afford cars would be driving little electric toys and the rest would be crowded onto mass transportation if they absolutely had to leave their cities and had the proper papers to do so. The American population would be a majority mixture of Central and South American, Middle Eastern, African and European immigrants who could just walk in and take what they like. Only whites would be required to work because of unfair past privilege. Education would consist of learning the rewritten history of a world that was born out of the chaos of freedom. We are awake and they are failing. The rest of the world sees what we have and are simultaneously jealous, envious and full of hate. The elites don't know how to recover their dream so they resort to propaganda, riots, show trials, abuse of honest citizens or anybody who disagrees with them. Dissenters would be put to death. How dare we not see it their way.

After initially supporting our British cousins in their attempt to exit the EU, I have come to believe that an exit is not the best solution, either by a hard break-out or a negotiated exit. The reason is that both leave the EU in place, just minus the Brits. I believe a better solution would be for the elected (key concept here) governments of the EU member countries to remake the EU. I suggest transforming it from an unelected central authority that bullies its member countries' citizens and answers to no one, into simply a multilateral trade arrangement along the lines of the USMCA. The experiment in abandoning national sovereignty into an unelected and unanswerable centralized authority should be recognized as a failure, but the idea of building upon European cultural commonalities should continue to be explored. Trade is the logical first step, and may in the end prove to be the limit of its expression.

For most of the last three years, Donald Trump’s critics have scoffed at supposed “conspiracy theories” that claimed a “deep state” of bureaucrats were aborting the Trump presidency. We have been told the word “coup” is hyperbole that reveals the paranoid minds of Trump supporters. Yet oddly, many people brag that they are proud members of a deep state and occasionally boast about the idea of a coup. Recently, former acting CIA chief John McLaughlin proclaimed in a public forum, “Thank God for the deep state.” Former CIA director John Brennan agreed and praised the “deep state people” for their opposition to Trump.
DNC Drops Lackluster Fundraising

The Democratic National Committee released its fundraising numbers during the presidential primary debate on Wednesday night, revealing that the committee lags far behind Republicans in funding for the 2020 elections. The DNC has $8.7 million in cash on hand, but it is $7 million in debt, according to its October Federal Election Commission filing. The Republican National Committee, meanwhile, had raised $156 million and had $61.4 million cash on hand as of the end of October. However, it was noted that the DNC is competing for donations with a wide field of presidential candidates, ten of which participated in Wednesday night’s primary debate.

Yesterday’s Democratic debate in Atlanta played out in front of Americans already exhausted by two weeks of tumultuous House impeachment hearings. At times it felt like the candidates were doing their best to offer beleaguered viewers a much-needed break from the constant stream of combative news clips cascading from Capitol Hill. For the most part, they succeeded. What voters saw last night was a mostly forgettable affair unlikely to spur big changes in the wide-open campaign to secure the Democratic presidential nomination. Former Vice President Joe Biden stumbled into gaffe after gaffe. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) offered viewers another recitation of his “I wrote the damn bill” one-liner on “Medicare for All.”

“Ready? You have the cameras running?” President Donald Trump said, baiting the press on Wednesday. While U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland was testifying before the Democrats’ House Impeachment inquiry Wednesday, Trump dared media to report something Sondland told the committee that morning in his sworn testimony. “Ready? You have the cameras running?” Trump asked reporters before quoting testimony from Sondland which, Trump says, “Means it’s all over” for Democrats’ impeachment efforts. Trump, then, quoted Sondland testifying that, when asked, President Trump twice told him that he wanted “nothing” in exchange for giving U.S. aid to Ukraine. “If you weren’t fake news, you’d cover it properly,”

In his opening statement to the House intelligence committee, Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland said "Yes," "there was a quid pro quo" with regard to the White House call and the White House meeting sought by the Ukrainians. But Sondland only "presumed" that U.S. military aid was part of the quid pro quo. No one ever told him that about the military aid, Sondland testified repeatedly. And that includes President Trump, who -- according to Sondland -- told Sondland directly, "I want nothing."

Vice President Joe Biden claimed Wednesday that he came “out of the black community” when discussing his political support during the fifth Democrat presidential debate. “I come out of the black community in terms of my support,” Biden said, noting that three former chairmen of the Congressional Black Caucus had endorsed his campaign as well as “the only African-American woman who’d ever been elected to the United States Senate.” (That claim was incorrect, an obvious gaffe that was fact-checked in real-time by Sen. Cory Booker and Sen. Kamala Harris on the debate stage)

Although the all ten Democratic presidential candidates on the debate stage Wednesday night spend much of the campaign trail arguing over why their policies are the country’s only chance at salvation, there is one area in which they all find common ground: an all-consuming passion for bloated government programs funded by taxpayer’s dollars. However, they all disagree vehemently on how to target the wealthy who pay those taxes. Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Sen.

We have lost the Democratic Party. And next, we could lose America. How? Very easily. Here’s how it will look. The Democrats will continue to funnel huge sums of money into local races targeting swing districts using front organizations like Planned Parenthood and MoveOn.org. The Establishment Republican Party will resign itself to failure in those districts, fail to mobilize voters, or act too late to make a difference. Republican voters will fail to go to the polls and vote. Republicans will fail to volunteer to act as polling officers and be in a position to prevent election fraud.

Here's one the Beltway punditocracy didn't see coming: Trump is soaring against nearly all Democrats in head-to-head matchups in Wisconsin. According to a Marquette University Law School Poll, which is a generally reliable barometer of voter sentiment in the Midwest, Trump is beating the daylights out of Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar. Only Cory Booker has a measly one-point advantage over Trump and that's within the margin of error. The rest of the Democratic cavalcade of candidates have polling numbers so low it's unlikely their even worth asking about.

Over the weekend, a new version came out, and it did not do very well, according to early accounts: "Charlie's Angels" ... wasn't able to entice its core audience of younger females and arrived well behind domestic box office projections (the studio was anticipating a start closer to $13 million). Though co-financing partners will help offset any potential losses for Sony, "Charlie's Angels" will now rely on overseas audiences to help recoup its $48 million production budget.

GOP Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio, hammered America's ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, during Wednesday's testimony, seizing on Sondland's admission that he never heard the president or anyone else in the White House explicitly link Ukrainian aid with the opening of an investigation into 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., applauded his colleague on producing "the real bombshell" of Sondland's long-anticipated testimony and marked the moment as "game over," for the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry. That inquiry is focusing on an alleged quid pro quo between President Trump and Ukraine linking military aid and White House access to Ukraine probes beneficial to Trump.

Up to 450,000 people could be affected by the outage, according to the LA Times. A virtually rainless fall has left brush bone-dry and forecasts called for low humidity and winds gusting at times to 55 mph.
