From Ruling Class to Oligarchy

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 11/21/2020 2:22:00 PM

By its campaign and conduct of the 2020 election, the ruling class ceased pretending to be part of a constitutional republic. By treating fellow Americans as inferiors through word and deed, its members renounced their common citizenship with us. Eschewing persuasion, they set about compelling obedience to an openly manipulated election. Thus did they burn their bridges to the rest of America as surely as did Hernán Cortéz when he burned the ships that had carried his troops to conquer the Aztec empire. Henceforth, they must rule or ruin as the oligarchy they have become.

This is a powerful piece … It very truly describes what has happened to our country, our republic. The question is - can this horrific damage be reversed? If so, how?

Only a tiny sample of a whole that must be read and shared: This is how it happened. It had been clear to that class that Trump was dangerous only because he represented his “deplorable” supporters. The ruling class sought to resist them by dispiriting them and discrediting them in their own and others’ eyes. Demonizing Trump was the means by which they sought to do this. Arguably the American country class’ principal mistake between 2016 and 2020 was to suppose that the Left was actually after Trump, rather than set about crushing them and killing the American regime. President Trump was protecting our republic and its good people. He had to be taken out...

I hate to break it to them, but they are seriously out-numbered. As more citizens wake up, the control afforded by the commie propaganda organs becomes less and less effective. How to reverse the damage, OP? Cartridge box. And use a rope for the remainder, as it's reusable and cartridges cost money.

Great read! FTA (concluding paragraph): What may be done about this is another story. But the story’s premise is that it must begin with the realization that the conservative more-or-less half of American life is living under an alien regime that means to continue harming us socially and morally just as much as economically. Plainly, we find ourselves in a (mostly not yet violent) state of war. The beginning of such safety as we may work out for ourselves is to regard our rulers as they regard us. Indeed! I've stated that they may have a tiger by the tail. We need to become that very angry tiger. Their minions rioted, broke, burned, harmed and murdered. On the Right - we have no orientation for such destruction. We need to pull their financial resources - OUR TAX DOLLARS!!!!

#1, you distilled the article to its essence. The only thing i think should be added is that this cabal is not limited to the USA, it is a worldwide and long-term plan to bring about the world government (in leftists lingo, "world communism") we have heard about and which so many have dismissed. World communism is, from the Bolshevik Revolution onward, the powerful force antithetical to democratic movements. We hear about hybrids that are supposed assuage fears, like "social democracies" or "Eurocommunism" as socialism with a human face, somehow milder, and will only destroy the individual person just a little bit. Europeans have been so bowdlerized that they offer little resistance to any further encroachments on their lives. They are the cogs in the machine of State, and they seem content to have no content or meaning in their lives. What do they create? what do they invent? the lack (not the absolute absence) of innovation and creativity is the sign of their having lost the essence of Human Being. They resent us because we are still free. President Trump has been the bulwark against the swirling tide of banality. Keep praying.

President Donald Trump’s campaign on Sunday appealed the dismissal of its election lawsuit in Pennsylvania, according to a notice filed in federal court, bringing the campaign one step close to its stated goal of getting an election challenge to the Supreme Court. District Court Judge Matthew Brann dismissed the campaign’s lawsuit on Saturday, opining that the plaintiffs lacked standing to bring the claim, among other issues. The campaign said it has appealed the ruling to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.(Snip)Brann’s dismissal of the lawsuit came before the stage of the proceedings where the Trump campaign would be able to present evidence.

An interesting review of Philadelphia ballot uploading results indicates a pattern of manipulated results according to an independent researcher looking at raw data. The results are discussed within a video upload explaining how the data-sets were organized and manipulated in a series of timed events. (Image)(WATCH HERE) According to the analysis: “in this data, particular vote ratios are transferred between random sets of seized precincts throughout the day.” “The Dominion System isolated a “Flip Set” from the expected vote count and the expected percentage. It then splices the Flip Set into multiple “ratio sets” and assigns them to precincts throughout the day. Once a particular “ratio set” receives the votes it needed,

Dinesh D’Souza cuts through some of the chaff and countermeasures deployed by Tucker Carlson and asks a transparently obvious question: Are U.S. ballot counting machines capable of being manipulated? That baseline question is not dependent on any answer within a court or Trump campaign team filing. That question is simply a matter of investigative journalism finding out… but they are disinterested. If the U.S. uses election machinery that is capable of being manipulated, that alone should initiate a serious line of inquiry about why such a function would even be present. Why would any ballot counting machine even need to have a feature to shift votes or change outcomes?

Donald Trump caused much consternation within the beltway last week after he announced that he would follow through on pulling most of the remaining troops out of Afghanistan. As per our usual agreement, the neoconservative contingent, including Mitt Romney, lost their minds demanding that a “reason” be given for attempting to end a 20 year war. You know, because being at war is now the default and needs no defense or something.At least that segment of the right was being consistent though. What’s been perhaps even more jarring is how the mainstream media and Democrats have suddenly decided they love forever war now.

ALBANY — One upstate company wants Gov. Andrew Cuomo to be the biggest turkey at your Thanksgiving dinner this year. The Buffalo-based design firm Custom 716 is selling stickers of the governor’s face that can be put on a window to make it look like Cuomo is peering inside — presumably to make sure not too many people are there to celebrate the holiday this year. The sticker is a clear way of ripping Cuomo for demanding that New York families avoid gathering in large groups for the holiday out of fears of spreading COVID-19. “Great for all gatherings, sure to get laughs, great for your business or your home!”

One of the things that never got the attention it really should have from the mainstream media during the campaign is how short-tempered and nasty Joe Biden can be with anyone who asks him a question that he doesn’t like.We saw that several times, when Biden lost it on voters or media who dared question him.(Snip)But there has been at least one reporter who has been trying to do his job when it comes to asking questions of Joe Biden. That’s Bo Erickson of CBS News. But that of course has earned the continuing ire of Biden. Biden let Erickson have it for daring to ask a real question today.

It looks like California 21 is another District that has flipped from Blue to Red. Republican David Valadao has defeated first-time incumbent Democrat TJ Cox for the U.S. House of Representatives seat. After the latest update from Kern County, Valadao’s lead of 2,644 votes in the race shrank on Friday to 1,618 votes. The number of votes left to count from Fresno, Kern, Kings, and Tulare counties has dwindled, the lead was enough for Dave Wasserman, U.S. House editor for the nonpartisan Cook Political Report and NBC News contributor to call the race.

Trump Team attorney Sidney Powell on Friday told Newsmax's Howie Carr that once the campaign drops evidence of voter fraud there will be a number of people who will need to be in witness protection. "When are we going to have some positive developments in the president's case here?" Carr asked. Powell said evidence of fraud will be released this coming week. "This was very widespread, very deliberate, well-funded and everybody and their pet rock is trying to stop me from exposing it," the attorney said.

When President Trump refused to concede the election to Joe Biden in the immediate aftermath of Nov. 3, we argued that he had the right to mount legal challenges if he believed there had been irregularities, mistakes, fraud, or all three. Democratic objections and outrage were as hypocritical as they were inevitable, coming as they did from a corps that refused to accept the 2016 election result not for days, weeks, or even months, but for four years. But although fair-minded people know there are legitimate procedures for litigation, and that these should be allowed to play out, there is also wisdom in the phrase, “put up or shut up.”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo blasted county sheriffs who are refusing to barge into people’s homes to break up gatherings of more than 10 people, arguing that his executive order limiting the size of private gatherings is the equivalent of law. Cuomo said the sheriffs who have vowed to ignore the mandate he issued last week are “arrogant” and “frightening to democracy,” the Democrat & Chronicle reported. The governor claimed that his executive order is no different than a codified law, and that he issued it in order to force people to stop the “living room spread” of the novel coronavirus.

LOS ANGELES/NEW YORK - Toilet paper aisles are emptying again as COVID-19 curfews and shutdowns in states from California to New York send pandemic-weary shoppers on a new scramble for essentials. Walmart on Friday said it was “seeing pockets of lower than normal availability” for toilet paper and cleaning supplies in some communities as infections rage virtually unchecked across most of the United States. As of Friday afternoon, 22 states have imposed restrictions aimed at decreasing spread of the virus - giving rise to a new round of panic buying from shoppers and purchase limits from retailers including Target and Kroger, the nation’s largest supermarket chain.

This is why you don’t swallow conspiracy theories whole-cloth without waiting for evidence to be presented. Amazingly, it appears that Trump’s own campaign is now disowning Sidney Powell’s fairly out there claims about German servers and millions of switched votes. And I don’t say that as someone who wouldn’t want to believe it if there was proof, but there was obviously no proof and plenty to the contrary. Here’s the Trump campaign today essentially telling Powell to go jump in a lake, which is probably the most surprising development of the last several months. Well, this is awkward.
