The Coup We Never Knew

Original Article

Posted By: GustoGrabber, 1/5/2023 4:59:47 AM

Did someone or something seize control of the United States? What happened to the U.S. border? Where did it go? Who erased it? Why and how did 5 million people enter our country illegally? Did Congress secretly repeal our immigration laws? Did Joe Biden issue an executive order allowing foreign nationals to walk across the border and reside in the United States as they pleased? Since when did money not have to be paid back? Who insisted that the more dollars the federal government printed, the more prosperity would follow? When did America embrace zero interest? Why do we believe $30 trillion in debt is no big deal?

It is all on Joe Biden, the fool on the hill and the worst president in our nation's history, and all of this is intentional.

Long, long ago we lost our soul; individually at first, here and there we let things slide. Then collectively things picked up speed. Like a disease our schools and universities spread drivel to our homes and businesses and recreation and our politics … fostered thoughts and ideas and opinions … and now dictates that belittle and hold in disdain the very anchor of our souls! We have grown to hate what was good for us, Who is good to us, Who made us who and what we were!

I sincerely hope there is a Part Two of this article which digs into who committed this coup. VDH asks the right questions but the one I want answered is who is running the show. I believe if the truth were ever told, it would be shocking to know who enabled, supported, and conducted this operation. We probably could guess a lot of the names, but I especially want to know the specific names of Republicans who aided and abetted the tornado of destruction that democrats released upon this nation. Reading this article is terribly disheartening because the coup was a massive effort, conducted by the most elite people in this country, and carried out by the premiere law enforcement arm of the United States government with the intention of denying American citizens the right the right to choose their own government. This government was once the envy of the world but because a few power hungry tyrants decided to ambush an election, we are a laughingstock. Our enemies do not fear us and our friends do not trust us. Please explain to me how this is preferable to a government of, by, and for the people? Only the insane or evil could wish these past two years on anyone. We are literally experiencing the demise of this great nation and it appears there is not one thing short of rebellion that we can do to stop it.

It comes down to this: the Evil Left works tirelessly to destroy the American Ethos; to undermine the People's belief in both our greatness and our goodness; and to destroy our confidence that those we elect, will serve us with integrity and diligence. Once this plan is known, it becomes crystal clear why our Nation is being flooded with backward and inferior (sorry, but that is mostly the case) people...who have never known ANY of the features referenced in my first sentence. Sadly, the Evil Left has nearly reached their goal. When we become a majority minority State, we will be a majority serfs feudal kingdom.

While we've been on a slow march towards tyranny, Obama's election put us into overdrive. He likely stole 2012, and accelerated the corruption of the DOJ & FBI. Biden is nothing more than a puppet whose strings are pulled by Obama as he completes his mission to fundamentally transform America. Pray for our country.

More like the 'Coup we all knew' but the truth is not allowed to emerge. Even Democrats know whats goingon. Now it's time for them to make a decision. Is it a good idea to have a socialist dictatorship or not. I am not confident they will choose wisely. We all need to ask them.

All this is incontrovertible evidence that America has lost its Christian soul, and some mainline churches have abetted this national tragedy. This is also clear evidence that Democrats destroy everything they touch.

This is a great compilation of the latest steps in the coup but the stage was set long ago by a series of massively transformative steps which we accepted with nary a whimper. The 1913 Federal Reserve Act, the 17th amendment, the "New Deal" with the preposterous notion that congress was granted the power to delegate their responsibilities to executive branch controlled agencies essentially rebranding laws as "regulations" circumventing the peoples representatives and pesky legislative process. The abuse of the tax code to serve as a mechanism for social engineering. And the coup de grace, the supreme court ruling that you only get to keep your earnings to spend as you see fit and it's up to the federal government to decide. We missed the coup because as the constitutional guardrails have been gradually removed the ruling elites have used caution in exercising their new powers for fear of waking up the masses. Constitutional rule of law has been replaced by tactical caution.

This should be a Must Read. And some of us know others who will say to you, "There always were bad things going on in the world. It's no different from what is happening today." NO - Not - Never. We live in a world where evil is overcoming the good just by the weight of it all. Got to remember, though, that good is stronger than evil. I don't know how it is overcome. It is exhausting.

Who is to blame? The purposeful legacy Media. The Oligarchs who own the outlets and the sychophants and idealists who work for them are guilty of favoritism and omissions which deprive citizens of the facts ("the truth" per the bidet). I am never surprised how uninformed my fellow Americans are. Panem et circenses - sports and entertainment provide distractions and allow the evil to advance in the background. IMO the re-institution of conscription would awaken the country-bigly

This is something McCarthy, McConnell, McDaniel, and all other RINOs should read and internalize if they want to be leaders. But they won’t, not only because they don’t care, but because they played a part in so much of this. If not actively, at least by watching and doing nothing so they wouldn’t rock the boat and interrupt their cash flow.

The human savage can be quite deadly and destructive. This isn't exactly new. When did our nation start serious deficit spending? Guessing that goes back to at least LBJ. When was our government turned into an influence peddler? Think that goes back to at least the railroad barons of the 1800s. When did people decide to make a living by stealing? That is old as time itself. One thing VDH missed. When did our education system change? All the way down to the K-12 level. When did our nation start submitting to global influence and embrace Socialism, Communism, Marxism, and Fascism? When did we sacrifice our freedoms, rights, and values? Is there a spiritual component to this or we doing it to ourselves? If one believes humanity is a spiritual being as well as a physical being, perhaps the question is moot, and humanity requires spiritual discipline as well as physical discipline. Our nation has been on a slow simmer for a long time, and it has now started to boil. We are the frog in the proverbial pot of boiling water. In the end, it may be on all of us regardless. Do we live or self-destruct?

To the leftist, progressive, and socialist Democrat portions of the DC “UniParty” especially including Biden, the five million mostly all poor and uneducated peoples from the third world who Biden has allowed to unlawfully gain entry to the USA, who fit within the minority categories of Democrat identity politics, are not considered by the leftist Democrats to be illegal aliens as they are defined in the immigration laws passed by Congress, but are considered to be future leftist Democrat supporters and voters, to be used as a part of the leftist Democrat strategic long-term plans to transform the USA into a minority-majority country, where a vast coalition of socialist oriented minority groups of both domestic and foreign origin effectively control future US politics and keep the leftist Democrats in permanent political power. Look for Biden and the leftist Democrats to now push for Congress to change the current immigration laws by passing what the leftist Democrats will refer to as needed “comprehensive immigration reform” that will include a series of “immediate” Democrat designed “path to citizenship” amnesty programs that would grant just about all the over twenty million illegal alien population now in the USA a legal immigration status, then US citizenship, and most importantly to the leftist Democrats, US voting rights. To get those amnesties passed the leftist Democrats will “promise” the wimpy Republicans that they will support “future” border security measures just as they falsely “promised” to gain previous wimpy Republican “bipartisan” support to pass prior amnesties. Promises that never kept, and is why there is such a massive illegal alien population is in the USA now. The reason that the leftist Democrats wholly support mass uncontrolled illegal immigration is that they believe that they can easily buy the future political support and votes of those would be former illegal aliens by promising them US Government provided financial benefits, services, and rights, “free” healthcare, and the ability to bring additional many millions of their foreign extended family members into the USA. A process that would further extend the future minority percentage of both the electoral and population demographics across the USA to what the leftist Democrats believe will be to their great favor in the years ahead. In addition common sense will tell you that when such massive amnesties are passed, those political actions alone will serve to encourage, invite, and lure millions of future prospective illegal aliens from all over the world to the US borderlines seeking unlawful entry to the USA. That’s why Biden has allowed the borderline to rapidly go out of control to the great favor of the criminal Mexican illicit drug and illegal alien smuggling cartels. It’s all political and it does not appear that the wimpy Republicans really even have a clue! The big question is just how fast the wimpy Congressional Republicans will bend to the leftist Democrat amnesty demands and essentially commit long-term political suicide.

Nearly all of the media has come under the control of the lefties who delight in lampooning the good and, instead, pushing the bad. Thus, people of faith are generally demeaned or ignored while every criminal's face & evil details are plastered across print media, movies and TV. That discrepancy of omission renders the media biased at it's core and somewhat responsible for false conclusions pushed upon the public. public. ...Thankfully, the goodness & faith in the hearts of most Americans shines through in times of need and even the media can't always hide that nor omit its reality.

When the insane have taken over and redifined sanity, are they still insane? When crackpoit charlatans have taken over, required everyone to pay homage to their crackpot beliefs, and punish all who question them, who is then the crackpot? In a land of the willfully blind, who will listen to the sighted man? Many of us still adhere to notions of objective truth, of truth beauty and goodness. Ugly art, poems that don't rhyme, and "music" with no melody. Strange times, these.

A 17-year-old Wyoming basketball player died suddenly after a medical event, according to local reports. Max Sorenson died unexpectedly at his home in Gillette on Dec. 26. He was pronounced dead at Campbell County Memorial Hospital. Campbell County Coroner Paul Wallem told the Cowboy State Daily that the teen's sudden death would not be investigated as a suicide, homicide, or caused by the use of illegal drugs. An autopsy of the junior high school student was being conducted in Rapid City, South Dakota. Wallem said preliminary findings show that Sorenson suddenly died from peritonitis.

Last week, Pope Benedict XVI was laid to rest. The world media were forced to cover the event, barely containing the vitriol they always had for the man. Why was such a kindly and humble scholar always the subject of such scorn? Most of it, I think, was that worldly commentators so hated his predecessor, but St. John Paul II's charisma simply washed over everyone, like a tidal wave. So they took it out on his successor. There is also a lot of academic jealousy by insiders.

The gleaming promise of new technology and its uses blinded us to the insidious extent imperiled elitists would go to protect their unmerited power, wealth, and status. We were naïve. Yet, even if one could have foreseen the metastasizing tyranny brought about by the digital age, it would have strained credulity to watch Americans—especially the young—not merely acquiescing to it, but embracing it. Though we are now inured to its novelty, it bears recollecting that from the late 20th century to the present, we have lived through a worldwide communications revolution. Profoundly affecting the individual and society, the full impact of this revolution remains unclear.

Dozens of prominent conservatives, including a former attorney general for the Reagan administration, released a letter Wednesday in support of the 20 House Republicans standing between Rep. Kevin McCarthy and his bid for the speakership. “Months ago, these members made clear that this established way of doing things was no longer acceptable,” the Conservative Action Project letter said. “Rather than engage them in a good faith negotiation, Rep. Kevin McCarthy has instead maligned both the requests and the messengers. He has publicly and through proxies leveled attacks against members of his own party, including threatening to deny committee assignments for those who continue to oppose him.”

Tolerance is a good thing in most aspects of life. But when it comes to the immune system, artificially juicing up the body to create antibodies with long-term tolerance to a pathogen is a recipe for disaster. Amid thousands of papers on COVID and the vaccines, a new German paper published in Science Immunology should be the headline story this week. Although the subject matter is very dense, the implication of it is that the Pfizer shots (and possibly other mRNA spike protein shots) caused the immune system to misfire, thereby creating an endless feedback loop of viral immune escape, perpetuating the pandemic in the macro,
2023 tax credits for EVs will boost their appeal 25 replies

Starting Jan. 1, many Americans will qualify for a tax credit of up to $7,500 for buying an electric vehicle. The credit, part of changes enacted in the Inflation Reduction Act, is designed to spur EV sales and reduce greenhouse emissions. But a complex web of requirements, including where vehicles and batteries must be manufactured to qualify, is casting doubt on whether anyone can receive the full $7,500 credit next year. For at least the first two months of 2023, though, a delay in the Treasury Department’s rules for the new benefit will likely make the full credit temporarily available to consumers who meet certain income and price limits.

This is one of them, and the cast is perfect: an ex-Republican congressman, MSNBC, and the Democrat-weaponized FBI — with the CIA tossed in as a bonus. Our tale begins with Kentucky Republican Rep. Thomas Massie’s revelation that now-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy agreed, as part of a deal with GOP lawmakers opposed to his speakership bid, to the formation of a committee modeled after the 1975 Senate Select Committee, formed by Senator Frank Church, which investigated abuses by the CIA, FBI, National Security Agency, and the IRS,

Americans are obliged to help bring more foreigners into their American society, White House spokesman John Kirby told reporters in a briefing ahead of President Joe Biden’s meeting with Mexico’s president on Monday and Tuesday. “You can’t forget that … we do, as a nation of immigrants, have an obligation to provide better tools and pathways for them to come in,” Kirby told reporters in the White House. The “Nation of Immigrants” narrative was invented in the 1950s by advocates for more migration. Biden and his deputies are pushing that claim to justify their importation of more illegal migrants above the limits set by Congress.
Mystery of why Roman buildings have survived

The majestic structures of ancient Rome have survived for millennia — a testament to the ingenuity of Roman engineers, who perfected the use of concrete. But how did their construction materials help keep colossal buildings like the Pantheon (which has the world's largest unreinforced dome) and the Colosseum standing for more than 2,000 years? Roman concrete, in many cases, has proven to be longer-lasting than its modern equivalent, which can deteriorate within decades. Now, scientists behind a new study say they have uncovered the mystery ingredient that allowed the Romans to make their construction material so durable and build elaborate structures in challenging places such as docks, sewers and earthquake zones.

The ascendance of Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) as the 55th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives may have come with all of the spontaneity of a shotgun wedding — but it finally came.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Sunday condemned House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's (R-CA) plans to kick her off the House Foreign Affairs Committee as hypocritical. Omar was asked about McCarthy's repeated promises to yank her committee assignments during an appearance on MSNBC's Yasmin Vossoughian Reports.

"I have not [received any updates]," Omar said. "It’s my understanding that we obviously have to get the rules package done. Hopefully, Monday when we reconvene, that is on top of the agenda,

These are the abusers, the professional abusers, the psychologically Machiavellian and inherently evil people within the system of power who operate on false pretense. They are smiley-faced fascists and liars, period. “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate
