A BLIGHT ON AMERICA, A BLIGHT ON THE CIVILIZED WORLD

America can no longer tolerate this evil deranged man

America can no longer tolerate this evil deranged man

Yesterday (9/10), Mr. Biden delivered the most insulting, contemptuous, and divisive speech by a president in U.S. history. As Biden crudely lectured and indicted the unvaxxed, he is importing hundreds of thousands of unvetted, unvaccinated, untested migrants from all over the world at the southern border and now from Afghanistan as well.  What gives? Is he importing a replacement population by design while trying to kill off those of us who are native-born Americans with vaccines that not only do not work, but for many have dire side-effects such as death, injury, and illness.  Could this all be part of the globalists' Great Reset?  Probably.  It all feels like part of someone's grand plan.

LARRY ELDER AND THE MYSTERY OF CALIFORNIA

larry-elderI motored up to Larry Elder’s house last Sunday (9/05) for a visit – he needed a break if only for an hour or two. He was just getting off a Zoom press conference when I arrived and soon he’d be off to yet another conference in his quest to upend Gavin Newsom and become governor of California.  The recall election, as you know, is next Tuesday (9/14). So we talked about what I call the Mystery of California. How, given the atrocious condition of the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, where I lived for fifty years and he still does, would any sane person not want to try to a new approach to government and a new governor? That’s the mystery. How did the most beautiful piece of real estate arguably in the entire globe turn into—let’s be blunt—a rubbish heap?

eco-worriersSo happily, this is not our problem.  So many progressives are mentally ill over their MSM driven paranoid delusions of catastrophic global warming that they are organizing psychiatric treatment and support groups for themselves.  Of course, they blame the "bad decisions of previous generations" for their angst, rather than their own uncritical idée fixe choices.  The bottom line for us?  It is better to have depressed paralyzed and hopeless opponents than ones full of confident activist energy: Report: Mental Health Concerns over ‘Climate Despair’ Sweeps Nation Fauci continues to fund the Wuhan virus lab with our money.  The Senate voted unanimously to ban this funding, but Pelosi's House members are still sitting on the bill.  What does the CCP have on Pelosi?  Likely a LOT because her driver for many years was a CCP spy:

THE LESSONS OF FAUCI’S HOUSE OF CARDS COLLAPSE

wanted-doctorAt long last, the deadly reign of Anthony Fauci will come to an end. That’s because yesterday (9/07) The Intercept, a hard-left publication, released (thanks to its FOIA lawsuit) 900 pages of government documents definitively proving that Fauci used his position to fund gain-of-function research into bat viruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (“WIV”)—and then lied to Congress about it. Here are the lessons to be learned from the fascist fraud of Fauci.

MEDIOCRITY REIGNS

celebrate-mediocrityThe Russian evolutionary anthropologist Peter Turchin coined the term “elite overproduction,” better understood as an overproduction of people who see themselves as potential elites, despite being mediocrities. Take Jake Sullivan, the United States National Security Advisor to President Joe Biden.  This guy is the primary architect of the plan to leave Afghanistan. A quick look at his résumé shows that he is laughably unqualified for the position. He is an overeducated idiot who is sure he is the smartest man in every room, despite being one of the dumbest men in every room. How did a vacuous airhead like Jake Sullivan get into this position?

ICE CREAM JOE’S CULTURE OF DEATH

ice-cream-joeIce Cream Joe, virtually all Democrats, and their accomplices in mainstream media are now up-in-arms because the split U.S. Supreme Court—on a 5-4 ruling—refused to “block” the Texas law from going into effect. They love parroting the line that restricting the right to murder the unborn in Texas “will disproportionately disadvantage black women who have most abortion in the state,” while failing to acknowledge the obvious corollary that SB8 will be a huge advantage to unborn black babies who now will have a real opportunity to experience the wonder of life rather than be sacrificed to Joe Biden’s culture of death. As Pastor Jack Graham of Dallas’ Prestonwood Baptist Church observes, with the Texas Heartbeat Law, “We’re going to turn America from a culture of death into a culture of life.”

HOW DID THE PENTAGON BECOME MENTALLY ILL?

woke-training-troops The fall of Kabul is not the end, as Joe Biden seems to think, of the Afghanistan nightmare. It is the beginning of a never-ending bad dream. Biden and the Pentagon have managed to birth a new terrorist haven, destroy much of U.S. strategic deterrence, and alienate our allies and much of the country. Something is terribly wrong in the ranks of America’s top commanders that reflects something wrong with the country.

THE SOULLESS SOCIOPATH IN THE WHITE HOUSE

blamegameOur hapless president's speech yesterday (Tuesday 8/31) was not a speech at all. It was a full-blown childish tantrum. While he was ostensibly celebrating his massive "airlift" of thousands of mostly Afghan refugees, from the beginning, it was clear he is extremely angry. He almost shouted his claim that his catastrophic misadventure in Afghanistan has been a “historical” achievement. This is a huge lie, and everyone knows it, even those trying to spin this debacle as a win. The man is a pathological liar without heart and soul. As the months of his administration slip by, it becomes clearer and clearer that he is a sociopath.

HEY, BIDEN VOTERS!!

missmeyetDamn you all.  You’re American citizens, with the right to vote in presidential elections. You’re grownups with no excuse. For four years, we had a president who revived America’s economy (especially for minorities), shored up Americans’ individual liberties, forged several remarkable peace agreements, and greatly strengthened our international position—thus firmly checking the ambitions of our powerful adversaries. But now, thanks to you -- yes, you Biden voter, look in the mirror! — that’s all thrown in the ashcan.  As a result, America has reached perhaps the lowest point in its history, and lower ones will soon be coming. So my question: are you going to come to your senses or not?

THE CHAIRMAN OF JOINT CHIEFS AND THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE MUST RESIGN

afghan-letter-from-retired-officers [Yesterday, August 30, 87 retired Generals and Admirals signed the Open Letter below stating their reasons why Chairman of Joint Chiefs (CJCS) Mark Milley and Secretary of Defense (SecDef) Lloyd Austin must resign.] The retired Flag Officers signing this letter are calling for the resignation and retirement of the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) based on negligence in performing their duties primarily involving events surrounding the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. The consequences of this disaster are enormous and will reverberate for decades beginning with the safety of Americans and Afghans who are unable to move safely to evacuation points; therefore, being de facto hostages of the Taliban at this time. The death and torture of Afghans has already begun and will result in a human tragedy of major proportions. The loss of billions of dollars in advanced military equipment and supplies falling into the hands of our enemies is catastrophic. The damage to the reputation of the United States is indescribable.

PRETENDING COVID IS AN EMERGENCY IS KILLING AMERICA

not-just-sheepThe entire Western world – from New Zealand and Australia to all of Europe and North America – is living a massive COVID lie. That lie is strangling the life out of liberty, and it will destroy our American constitutional order if we do not end this horrifying charade. But cut through it all and ask — how many Americans are dying? According to Johns Hopkins, the fatality rate of COVID in the United States is 1.7 percent, which means that 98.3 percent survive. That takes into account all deaths, including people who had underlying conditions and the elderly. Excluding those who are obviously high-risk, the survival rate is close to 100 percent. If COVID ever were an emergency, it is no longer one now, and it has not been for a long time. There is no justification for the continued suspension of the American form of self-government that secures all our individual rights and liberties.

BIDEN’S BROWN THUMB

brownthumb-bideTo say of someone they “have a green thumb” is to note everything in their garden grows and blossoms.  Joe Biden’s thumb is not green – it is brown.  Everything he has touched since entering office has turned to feces. None of his blame-gaming, none of his distortions, none of his fantasies and unreality can mask that truth. Everything from the Afghan Catastrophe, to the Inflation Fiasco, the Border Disaster, to Energy Insufficiency, the Race Calamity, to the Crime Explosion – there are several proposed explanation of his fecal touch.

Sometimes I cry. In 1999, when the barrel-chested Marine recruiter showed up in dress blues and bedazzled my son John, I did not stand in the way.  John was headstrong, and he seemed to understand these stern, clean men with straight backs and flawless uniforms.  I did not.  I live in the Volvo-driving, higher education-worshiping North Shore of Boston.

AFGHAN FUBAR OR TREASON?

evacuation-unheardAs the Afghan Fubar continues to worsen, here’s something to consider. We’ve done this three times since 1975, all to horrific results for those who were left.  What is the singular constant of those last 46 years? Joe Biden was somewhere in the decision tree. First as a US Senator from Delaware, who along with his senate majority refused to fund military support to the South Vietnamese. Second came in orchestrating the withdrawal from Iraq in 2011 as O’Bama’s VP.  That withdrawal gave us ISIS. Final withdrawal is from Afghanistan, which is still underway.

IN A SANE WORLD THEY ALL WOULD RESIGN

fleeing-afghanThe American-nurtured Afghan military of the last 20 years that had suffered thousands of prior casualties evaporated in a few hours in the encirclement of Kabul. Enlistees apparently calculated that their own meager chances with the premodern Taliban were still better than fighting as a dependency of the postmodern United States—despite its deterrent embassy pride flags, powerful diversity training programs, and indomitable new Afghan University gender studies majors. Forces more powerful than the Taliban, in places far more strategic, will now leverage a cognitively challenged American president, an ideologically driven but predictably incompetent administration, a woke Pentagon, and politically weaponized intelligence communities.

THE RETURN OF “AMERICA HELD HOSTAGE”

American hostages in Tehran 1979

Some 15,000 U.S. citizens and residents are behind Taliban lines. There are reports there may be three times that. There’s no easy way to get them out. As Taliban forces consolidate their control of Kabul, the nature of the new regime remains somewhat veiled. One thing, however, is clear: The Taliban hold the lives of thousands of U.S. citizens—and the future of the Biden administration—in their hands. Mr. Biden vowed that his Afghan withdrawal would not lead to a Saigon moment. That ship has sailed, but Saigon 1975 is far from the worst-case scenario for Afghanistan today. With thousands of unprotected U.S. citizens scattered across the country, Mr. Biden should worry about a repeat of Tehran in 1979 – on steroids.

The Iraqi stooge became the stuff of late-night comedy a generation ago. Biden has doomed himself to be the master of disaster for a new generation.

save-america-bide-fail Although the White House had intended to keep Biden under wraps for as long as possible, the demand that he say something — anything — about the unfolding debacle in Afghanistan forced him to leave Camp David for a 20-minute statement, after which he refused to take any questions. The important part of what he said boils down to one sentence: we had to leave, and everything that went wrong was Trump's or the Afghans' fault. Biden is a craven coward, a feckless fool, a dismal dummy, and a man who will soon have more blood on his hands than a thousand Lady Macbeths.

PROTECTIVE RESUMPTION – HOW STATES CAN RESTORE OUR CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOMS

defend-the-constitutionThe COVID pandemic has witnessed the exercise of state “police powers” on a scale and scope unprecedented in America’s peacetime history. Out of fear of contagion, massive amounts of private property in the form of shops, restaurants, bars, and other businesses were peremptorily seized and shuttered. The rights of landlords to collect rents and evict tenants were suspended. The ability of people to cross from one state to another was hobbled by regulations, quarantines, and delays. The purpose here is to point out what such robust assertions of police powers could achieve, constitutionally and politically, if put to different and more legitimate ends—protecting Americans’ health and safety against what predictably ensues when the federal government abandons one of its primary charges. We propose calling this the Doctrine of Protective Resumption.

HOW COMMUNIST CHINA SUPPORTS COMMUNIST CUBA

They were the first large-scale demonstrations in Cuba since 1994, and the largest since Fidel Castro took power in 1959. Protesters used social media to broadcast to the world what was happening, but the communist regime shut off the internet and telephone services, pulling the plug on their connection outside the island. The key to the regime’s ability to do so was China. One example of many how Communist China supports Communist Cuba.

[The HFR of July 23 explained how Xiden and leaders of other countries are committing Crimes Against Humanity with their vax mandates:  “Due to the horrific experimentation on Auschwitz prisoners by Nazi doctors such as Josef Mengele… it is has long been considered by international legal consensus a ‘Crime Against Humanity’ to force people against their will to take an experimental drug – which all Covid vaccines are.” Here, TTP reader Pennel Bird provides a valuable further explication of why so many government leaders and officials are criminals violating international law.] Dr. Josef Mengele is one of the true monsters of history.  The cruelty and depravity of Mengele and others, including Adolf Eichmann, shocked the world, were almost beyond reckoning, and subsequently inspired the establishment of the Nuremberg Code — which was tacitly endorsed by nearly every nation on earth. The ten points of the Nuremberg Code for human experimentation are as follows:

Indeed, it is uncanny how closely China and the US resemble the relative global status of, and relationships between, Imperial Japan and America circa 1938-40. As now, the first Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere was a thin veneer masking Japanese inherent weakness: constitutional weakness, fuel and food weakness, economic weakness, strategic and military weakness. So here’s why Communist China has feet of clay.
