I’m speaking to the Ruling Elite…YOU scornfully claim I wear a tinfoil hat and idle the time away in delusional dreaming of imagined political catastrophes. YOU scoff at my concerns and dismiss my patriotism with comic memes. YOU casually prance from day to day as if everyone and everything in this world is at your “beck and call.” YOU utter illegal and absurd mandates and heartedly condemn non-compliance but then you hold yourself aloof from the compliance you demand from others. YOU claim I am obsessed with conspiracies that are unfounded and serve as fodder for insurrectionist protests when in reality it is YOU fomenting the conspiracies. YOUR childish antics are deserving of the playground retaliatory quip: “I’m rubber, you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off me and sticks on YOU!” The true conspiratorial insurrectionist is YOU!
The most brutal political practice ever weaponized is the planting, nurturing and then oppression of “conspiracies.” Even though this word “conspiracy” has been publicized by today’s political Elite, it is not novel. From the Beginning of time conspiratorial thoughts have attacked the Rule of Law. In the Garden, the Devil suggested the Forbidden Tree was off-limits because God Almighty wanted to keep mankind different from Deity.
From the Beginning of time conspiracy has been used as a leverage to further the agenda of the Elite so they will gain more power and greater riches. This evil ambition is not confined to any geographical borders, language, ethnic race, or political inclination. Power is possessed and ambitious evil wants more and more; seeking gain through fear, intimidation and false accusations.
In order to frame the purpose of conspiracies we need to ask, “WHO benefits from accusations of conspiratorial theories?” This is a significant but overlooked query.
Conspiracy is an action of a group who strategize an unlawful, harmful, or evil plan. This is formulated in secret. Its intent is for harmful or evil purposes. It is an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act for a given result. It involves planning, coordination, information dissemination and an objective. The term is always used in the strongest negative connotation.
The success of the conspiracists depends upon a sliver of truth wrapped with lies and propagandized to manipulate and achieve the evil objective. The conspiracy is presented with the message that the ones exposing and punishing the conspiracy are acting for the “greater good.” “Who” would dare stand in the way of the “greater good.” Thus, the conspiracists define the “greater good” in a manner furthering their ambition.
A survey of civilization illustrates this evil action; furnished are myriads of examples. Revealed is the Rulers’ tyrannical oppression of the Ruled. Once the Rulers publish their delusional conspiracies, they are justified in punishing those guilty of the imaginary threats.
Perhaps the most recognized example comes from the evil of Fascist Germany (1930). It was through propagandized conspiracies that the German public accepted the mass murder and systematic killing of Jews, gypsies, homosexuals and disabled persons during the Holocaust. These groups were targeted by the Fascists and killed in crematoriums and concentration camps. It was the media publications that manipulated people’s thoughts to develop anti-Semitic, anti-gypsy, anti-homosexual and anti-disabled hysteria. Circulating the conspiratorial rumors, established prejudices and discriminatory practices and encouraged the escalation to an accepted state of violence.
A frightening summary of how political talking-heads used conspiracy to justify the State-sponsored police action is stated in an article titled “Has The World Become Nazi Germany?”
“As a child survivor of the Nazi reign of terror I learned indelible lessons about the nature of evil… Academic science, the military, industry, and clinical medicine were tightly interwoven as they are now. The Nazi system destroyed a social conscience in the name of public health…Nazi propaganda used fear of infectious epidemics to demonize Jews as spreaders of disease, as a menace to public health…Medical mandates today are a major step backward toward a fascist dictatorship and genocide…these undermine our dignity as well as our freedom…The stark lesson of the Holocaust is that whenever doctors join forces with government and deviate from their personal professional clinical commitment to do no harm to the individual, medicine can then be perverted from a healing humanitarian profession to a murderous apparatus…What sets the Holocaust apart from all other mass genocides is the pivotal role played by the medical establishment…Medical doctors and prestigious medical societies and institutions lent the veneer of legitimacy to infanticide, mass murder of civilians.” (Holocaust survivor and medical patients’ rights activist Vera Sharav)
The tyranny of the Rulers oppressing the Ruled by delusions of “conspiracies” is not limited to the past. Our current times are witnessing a similar manipulation. The evil Political Elite seek to numb the population’s awareness by claiming accusations of wrong doing are mere “conspiracies.” It is not uncommon for those questioning the Elite’s agenda to be rebuffed with, “Come on now! You are sounding like some of those crazy Conspiracists!”
Published in HUMAN EVENTS, June 5, 2021 is an excellent analysis by Jim Hanson titled AN INVENTED INSURRECTION: How the left is trying to criminalize conservatism. Hanson’s astute analysis was used a month later in another outstanding analysis by Michael Austin in the Western Journal. Austin’s report was titled: Investigative Report: Dems Are Using ‘Invented Insurrection’ to Create 2nd War on Terror Targeting Americans. Hanson’s conclusion aptly frames the diabolical objective of the Elite Rulers. The Rulers were seeking to tyrannize the subjected Ruled. Hanson states, “The only conspiracy here is by the left to deprive their political opponents of their Constitutional rights.”
The Ruling Elite are being pressed to declare more conspiracy theories because their façade of integrity is crumbling. More are becoming aware and are questioning the tyranny they have gullibly accepted. When the Rulers feel pressed, they strongly react. A greater tyranny, a greater propaganda, a refashioned mission strategy and a greater intolerance will emerge.
This development is currently observed. It is a reality—look at those wrongfully arrested, illegally imprisoned, unconstitutionally beaten, starved, deprived in DC jails following the J6 protests against the State’s illegalities. The Rulers are threatened. Their retaliation is harsh and inhumane designed to “teach a lesson” to others who might think of non-compliance.
On January 13, 2022 Jim Hoft published a shocking article titled: BREAKING: OathKeepers Founder and President Stewart Rhodes Arrested — Charged with Seditious Conspiracy a Year Following Jan. 6 Protests. The desperation of the Ruling Elite is evident. Their media propaganda has miserably failed to deceive the population. The imagined charges of “conspiracy” are intended to stoke fear and compliance. When the Rulers fail to see this response, it acts with a greater hostility. Their power and wealth are slipping; their evil ambition’s appetite is not satisfied. The Rulers are beside themselves not understanding why the Ruled refuse to cower and comply.
If you want to see the extent to which the Rulers are desperately trying to maintain their tyranny over the Ruled, just look at the “conspiracies” they have announced. These are conspiracies are concocted by the delusional mind to justify the tyrannical despotism of Washington POLS and entrenched Bureaucrats. These are desperate to feed their selfish ambitious appetite. They are desperate to cling to power and wealth that are extorted from the citizens of our Republic! Here are just few and you can add to the list:
• Parents are terrorizing school boards
• Concerned citizens are domestic terrorists
• Those questioning the 11/3/20 election are subversives
• Those questioning the CDC/NIH/FDA mandates are insurrectionists
• Those claiming COVID death rates are inflated are “unscientific”
• Those refusing the experimental jab are ignorant hillbillies
Be assured that much more will be written about the “conspiracies” fomented by the evil Rulers to maintain their control over the Ruled. The conspiracies ARE NOT the product of the concerned citizens BUT ARE the product of the evil Rulers seeking to discredit, disparage and decry the integrity of those pursuing the Truth. Look back at the opening paragraph—let the RULING POLS know this fact, YOU bear the blame! Do not excuse or elevate yourself to an aloofness that depreciates another person or group.
One final illustration fittingly portraying the current affairs in our nation’s Capital. Inside the Beltway all seem impervious to the reality of the citizens in the USA. These, inside the Beltway, have assumed an elitist position; they are aloof, insensitive and unconcerned.
Now listen to this…History records the tyranny of a Ruler over the Ruled. This woman was a hated Hag; an ugly old woman, vicious and malicious. She was ungodly and trained her son in evil. Her son was justly executed, and the mother usurped the throne making herself queen. She is forever known as a murderer, even killing her own children so her position would be secured. Inevitably the wheels of justice turned bringing her downfall. The nation returned to the Rule of Law and she was held accountable. When she was being removed and the Law was being restored, she “tore her clothes and cried out, Conspiracy! Conspiracy!” (2 Kings 11:14).
Such reveals a simple truth—those crying “Conspiracy” are the ones who need to be arrested, adjudicated, and punished. This truth is historically validated but scornfully ignored. Again, I ask, in order to frame the purpose of conspiracies we need to ask, “WHO benefits from accusations of conspiratorial theories?” The answer is the Ruling Tyranny benefits because it gives a delusional legitimacy to oppress and punish!

Today His Son Can No Longer Walk the Streets of Washington DC Without “Papers”
by Wayne Allyn Root
Thursday wasn’t a good day for President Biden. First, the Supreme Court shouted “LET’S GO BRANDON” by killing his prized private employer mandate. Then Democrat Senators Manchin and Sinema destroyed his dreams of banning Voter ID to insure one party rule in America.
After hearing all that bad news, I’m guessing Biden put a lid on it, and headed for the White House basement where his wife prepared baby food, fed him milk from a bottle, and then tucking him in with his favorite blankie.
But we can’t afford to rest because of two short-lived victories. We have much work to do, to save America from a communist/fascist takeover.
Washington DC is Exhibit A. Did you hear the latest plot twist in DC? Two steps forward, one step back.
Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser just announced no one can leave their home or hotel without papers 24/7. You can’t enter any restaurant, bar, retail store, department store, gym, or even walk the streets, without government issued photo ID, plus proof of vaccine.
This is happening in America.
People “like me” are banned from Washington DC. I’m not certain- is it because I’m a Jew, Republican, or unvaccinated? Maybe all three?
Let me make a few significant points here.
First, “my body, my choice.” Democrats live and die with that mantra when it comes to murdering innocent children in the womb. Ironically, at this very this moment, Democrats are passing laws to make abortion legal up until the moment of birth. But in DC when it comes to my body, I have no choices. It’s either take an experimental poisonous jab that could cripple or kill me, or I give up my job, my social life, and all of my civil rights.
Second, my father didn’t almost die at the battle of Okinawa during World War II, so his son could be banned from entering Washington DC. This is a disgrace to anyone who ever fought or died for this country.
Third, as a Jewish American, I see many echoes of Nazi Germany. Today it is “the unvaccinated” who are being slandered, denigrated, persecuted, fired and banned for the crime of not wanting to take the dangerous, experimental Covid jab.
Today’s unvaccinated American is being called the same words as Jews in Nazi Germany: “dirty, filthy, dangerous, diseased, criminal, disloyal, selfish, someone who should be banned from society, no longer allowed to eat at restaurants, or have a drink among normal people.”
What’s next? Yellow Stars? Well that’s already happening. In many schools in America, children are being separated by vaccination status.
Fourth, this is all about “papers.” Democrats claim that asking for proof of citizenship before voting is like the Gestapo asking for “papers,” but to demand “papers” to eat food, buy groceries, or shop 24/7/365 isn’t Gestapo? Actually, it’s more like Gestapo, Russia’s KGB, East Germany’s Stasi, combined with Communist China’s forced labor camps.
Finally, if Covid is such a “national health emergency,” why has Biden and his communist cabal opened the border, so millions of malnourished, tired, sick and diseased illegal aliens can flood into this country, with no health checks, no masks, and no vaccine mandates?
Either this “health emergency” is pure fraud intended to allow Democrats to rig and steal elections with mail-in ballots and no Voter ID; or this “health emergency” is real and Democrat tyrants like Biden and Bowser are purposely letting the whole world in, to spread Covid, thereby creating crisis and hysteria, and giving themselves more power to control every aspect of our lives.
My Jewish military veteran father was ready to die for this great country. What was he fighting for? Freedom. Now all these years later, the tyrant Mayor of DC thinks she can ban law- abiding, tax-paying citizens who happen to have different political views from entering America’s capital.
But I’ll bet Mayor Bowser supports transsexual rights. I’ll bet she thinks any man can identify as a woman and we have to accept that as fact. Then they can use women’s restrooms, and play sports with our daughters.
We can all learn from that lesson. From now on, please consider me “Trans-vaccinated.” I’m unvaxxed, but I identify as ”vaccinated.” You’ll have to take my word for it. If I think I’m vaccinated, I am. And if you “mis-identify me,” you’ll open up your business to million dollar lawsuits.
That love of order and obedience to the laws, which so remarkably characterize the citizens of the United States, are sure pledges of internal tranquility—Thomas Jefferson.
The disintegration of America is happening before us in slow motion. We are witnessing the complete erosion or our society by violence and mayhem, deliberately brought about by leftist policies that are completely hamstringing not only law-enforcement, but the entire adjudication process as well. In this wake, smash-and-grab gangs of mostly black thugs are now smashing store windows in major cities and robbing merchants blind.
One area where this is particularly harmful is found in dealing with criminal behavior among the black-communities of America. Running from the slur “racism,” the majority-culture has allowed soft-on-crime policies to go unchecked when it comes to minorities. From the school-house to the court-house, to the open-border sponsored by the Biden Administration, a consistent enforcement of rules is a thing of past.
Heather Mac Donald
Heather Mac Donald is the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute. She is also a best-selling author of many books on cultural issues as well as contributing editor of City Journal. She appeared as a guest on the Tucker Carlson show (guest-hosted by Brian Kilmeade) a few days ago and offered what I consider to be the best “in-a-nutshell” analysis of what is going on in America. Below is the transcription I made.
They were discussing specifically the ending of “cash-bail” for minorities, particularly in light of the Christmas parade homicides committed by Darrell Brooks, Jr. in Waukesha, WI on Nov. 23. Heather Mac Donald speaks first about the growing lawlessness in our society.
She mentions “disparate impact.” This is the concept that policies and procedures and rules appear to have a “disproportionate” impact on minority groups. The assumption is that more blacks are incarcerated, or ticketed, for example, because whites are racist in application of the law. Mac Donald shows that this is nonsense.
Heather: “Brian, we are witnessing the disintegration of civilization right before our eyes. When massive numbers of individuals know that they can rampage through stores, plundering and looting, confidant of their immunity from the law, there is nothing left of the civilized order. The protection of property is the cornerstone of a stable, prosperous society. Merchants have to know they can put their goods in the stream of commerce without being robbed blind.
“Now, the common thread in the shameful looting, in the Waukesha Christmas parade murders, and rising gun violence, is the concept of disparate impact. And unless that concept is explicitly refuted and rejected there’s no way we are going to get a handle on this rising crime.
“The reason that felony theft laws are not being enforced, and the reason Darrell Brooks was put back onto the streets despite an active warrant and a 50-page rap sheet is because enforcing theft laws, … requiring bail, has a disparate impact on blacks.”
Continuing, she adds, “But law enforcement has a disparate impact on blacks, not because its racist, but because the black crime-rate is so high.
“But when you stop enforcing the law in order to avoid disparate impact its blacks who are hurt the most.”
Brian: “Look at the stats; raw numbers. More Blacks are committing crimes than other minority groups, than whites.” “That’s why the arrests are greater and that’s why they are more in jail. Is that what you are saying?”
Heather: “Absolutely. Law enforcement is a function of criminality. It is not driven by racism. The blacks die from homicide at 13 times the rate of whites, that’s because they are committing homicides at 13 times the rate of whites. In NYC, … blacks commit about 75% of all shootings, … even though they are only 23% of the population.” “Whites commit less than 2% of all shootings though they are 34% of the population.”
“So, the solution here is not to stop enforcing the law. That means more mayhem, more deaths. The solution is to tackle – despite what Chesa Boudin (San Francisco DA) thinks is the root cause of crime … he would say poverty and racism—the root cause of inner-city crime is family breakdown.” “As long as that problem goes unaddressed our only solution is to enforce the law in a color-blind just fashion.”
The day our forebears in the Americana have warned about is here. Tyranny. There is no other way to describe President Joe Biden’s pompously mandating the COVID shots for all citizens in American businesses that employ 100 persons or more. Lacking only the enforcement mechanism, the Biden presidency is operating as a dictatorship.
As of Wednesday of this week, twenty-seven governors or attorneys general have vowed to fight President Biden’s mandate that over 80 million private employees receive COVID vaccinations and undergo weekly testing. Putting teeth into the mandate, Biden promises that employers who fail to comply will be fined.
The Biden back door method to implementing such draconian measures is through OSHA—Occupational Safety and Health Administration. So announces his Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, who promised that Biden has a slew of new and greater measures to be unveiled later this week. Vivek went so far as to say: we have to “use every level of government” to tackle this virus.
There you have it. OSHA is a part of the unconstitutional FOURTH branch of government. Truth be told, We the People have allowed unconstitutional actions to accelerate over the past 75—perhaps 100 years– to a degree that now the president feels emboldened to pull off the mask and reveal the dictatorship.
What unconstitutional actions do we have in mind? One illustration out of myriads is the following.
In 2011 Congress passed 81 bills into law. During the very same period, however, federal agencies pushed 3,807 new regulations on Americans. These rules are treated as law. In 2016, federal departments, agencies, and commission issued 3,853 rules while Congress passed only 214 bills into law—a ratio of 18 “rules” for every law.
According to Forbes magazine, the average has been 27 rules for every law over the past decade. From 1995 through December 2016, there have been a whopping 88,899 rules and regulations passed by federal agencies operating beneath the executive branch, but only 4,312 laws for the same period.
This is why federal bureaucrats act dictatorial in that they send out armies of regulatory compliance officers to monitor and enforce regulations, levy fines, make arrests and in general, demand compliance. These officers are unelected and unaccountable to the American people they supposedly serve.
The very first sentence of Article 1, Section 1 of the US Constitution reads, “ALL legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” Pretty simple. The Constitution does not allow Congress to sublet its lawmaking authority to the president, bureaucrats, or judges. But even more than that. Congress has only those legislative powers “herein granted.” This means that it has no authority to pass any and every law that Congressional members desire, but only those dealing with specific matters delegated by the Constitution.
Patience, tolerance, and constitutional ignorance in the American people do not begin to describe what has been occurring for nearly a century. Anesthetized is more like it. In the Biden Administration we are staring at the very definition of tyranny.
As I write, tens of thousands of Haitians are encamped under a bridge in Del Rio, TX. The numbers of these invaders increases so rapidly that I avoid putting a number on the thousands that are there, knowing that by the time this article is posted it will have swelled further. At the invitation of the Biden Administration they have trespassed into our nation, expecting more unconstitutional distribution of American taxpayer funding.
Last month more than 200,000 people crossed into the United States illegally. Taxpayers are funding the re-location of these invaders, ala the Biden Administration. Predictably, many of these are disease-carrying that threaten our citizens. “What’s coming over into the US could harm everyone,” a Texas Border Patrol agent warns. “We are starting to see scabies, chicken pox, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections, and different viruses.” There are now credible reports of leprosy among the crowds and TB is growing globally.
But it matters not. The borders are wide open to the world under Joe Biden and obviously, these immigrants are not masked and do not have the COVID shots. No, these are the draconian measures the Democrats want American citizens to observe.
This is suffering to the American citizen on a number of fronts—by means of law—or lawmakers who ignore the law.
Marxist-oriented Democratic-supported Black Lives Matter has left a number of American cities in smoldering ruins from the 600-plus violent riots last year. This was a government-sponsored “protest” that included members of Congress. Huge corporations such as Airbnb, Cisco, IBM, Microsoft, Reddit, Snap, Amazon, Gatorade, Nabisco, and many others also donated huge chunks of cash to the anti-American cause.
Political leaders such as VP Kamala Harris even assisted in bailing out the rioters and violence-mongers so that they can loot some more. Concurrently, a huge movement to Defund the Police has gripped major cities such as Minneapolis, Baltimore, and Seattle. This is sponsored, once again, by the Majority Party in Washington, D.C.
That all of this is one-sided, consider the following.
Across the aisle, there is an Iron Muzzle on the “J6” (January 6) Trump-supporting protestors from earlier this year. These were treated differently. Not only did the Capitol Police invite many people into the building and many of those people wandered through peacefully and left again, causing minimal damage, but there is reason to believe that many of the people attending the rally on January 6 were provocateurs, whether from the FBI or Antifa or BLM, “intentionally trying to destroy conservatives.” Some of these are held or have been charged on no more grounds than that of “parading” on Capitol grounds.
Psalm 94: The God of Redress
In the face of a clear multi-tiered justice system in America, tilted to favor radicals and liberals, Psalm 94 speaks of the helpless victims of such corruption. “There is a sense in which they are by definition powerless and helpless.” The psalmist complains about eminent, powerful, important people—because they are faithless (v 2-3). Their faithlessness expresses itself in the way they treat ordinary people—ignoring the real needs of its citizens, while seeking to muzzle conservative opposition. How long with the faithless exult, Yahweh, … they crush your people, Yahweh, they put down your very own (v. 4-5).
The psalmist calls these governing officials “brutes” (v. 8). The question is asked of these, “When will you show some insight?!” Though it does not look like the “brutes” that run our country will come to reality any time soon, the comforting thought is that God notices! (v. 9-15).
God is the one who “disciplines nations” (v. 10). He does “not forsake his people, He does not abandon His very own” (v. 14). Political leaders “are stupid to make [the] assumption about Yahweh’s lack of interest in what is going on in the world.” He will not ignore the situation. Sometimes, however, it may look differently “in the short term” though oppression of the godly will not last in the long run. Authority will eventually “return to its proper basis”—God-given liberties. And then people will be able to “support the government rather than protesting it.”
The highlight comes at v. 20. Can the throne that brings destruction [unjust governments] ally with You [God]? Someone who creates suffering by means of law? That is, frequently, governments themselves, instead of enforcing law to protect its citizens, actually “create suffering” by their unjust laws. This causes in us “anxiety” (v. 19)—but God is our Rock of Refuge (v. 22). God will settle it all.
Our borders are completely out of control; our welfare state has become overburdened with every form of “benevolence” that any politician might image; and the bureaucratic Biden Administration now looks more like a communistic regime ordering draconian COVID shots for private businesses than a guardianship of liberty.
Make no mistake. This is the hour of trial for America. It is the Constitution – the fundamental law of our nation — that is being trashed.
The official National Archives Website has added a trigger “WARNING” to all readers of THE US CONSTITUTION, THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS. The cautionary label warns about the “harmful language” in these documents.
The “trigger warning” by our own government reads: As part of the National Archives’ “institutional commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility,” we are now flagging “potentially harmful content,” which we define as reflecting “racist, sexist, ableist, misogynistic/misogynoir, and xenophobic opinions and attitudes” as well as being “discriminatory towards or exclude diverse views on sexuality, gender, religion, and more.”
I don’t even know what some of these terms mean, but our own government portrays our founding as hateful and the laws that flow from it as harmful. Little wonder therefore, that schools and universities portray our Founding Fathers as purveyors of hate who installed “protectionist policies” to guard their wealth. The National Archives’ Task Force insisted earlier this summer that the historic portrayal of the founding fathers has previously been “too positive.”
With sad reflection we ask,
Where Did America Go Wrong?
One of the chief taproots of our derangement is the so-called “Welfare System.” This is where the strong arm of government steals from one segment of society to redistribute to others—whether in monies or social benefits.
James Madison, the father of the Constitution, in 1794, when Congress appropriated $15,000 for relief for French refugees who fled from insurrection in Dan Domingo (now Haiti) to Baltimore and Philadelphia. Madison stated, “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”
Pretty telling isn’t it? Especially as we now have tens of thousands of Haitians massing at our border in Del Rio, TX specifically for the welfare benefits of housing, medical care, food, education and whatever other form the “government” checks may take. And not only Haitians—but millions upon millions of non-citizens that the “powers that be” have continued to shower with tax-payer funded benefits.
Other presidents who followed Madison had similar respect for the Constitution. In 1854 President Franklin Pierce vetoed a bill to help the mentally ill, observing, “I cannot find any authority in the Constitution for public charity.” He added that to approve the proposed measure “would be contrary to the letter and the spirit of the Constitution and subversive to the whole theory upon which the Union of these States is founded.”
Numerous other illustrations could be given demonstrating the unconstitutionality of utilizing taxpayer money to give to those deemed to be in need.
We now live in a socialistic state that completely disdains the Constitution. It is true that not all of the details of socialism have been ironed out as of yet; for example, we do not have Universal Health Care run by the government—but we are close. But the most dangerous element that the Welfare State introduces is that it corrodes our ability to reason.
The problem is in our thinking. Or, lack thereof. The 19th century French economist Frederic Bastiat exposed the mistake in our thought processes, which the founding generation was able to see.
Socialism … confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all….It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.
The corruptions in our system seem overwhelming, whether in business, government, military, education, or whatever. Much of the poison that causes this can be primarily traced to the unconstitutional welfare system. It blinds us to the simple reality that “people assisting people” is not the same as “government” forcibly taking from some to redistribute to others.
I love words—their etymology is an amazing study; their composition knits an amazing narrative.
The word of the day for me is the noun “lunacy.” Its earliest use is found in the 1540s and describes the “condition of being a lunatic.” Originally this was used in reference to intermittent periods of insanity, such as were believed to be triggered by the moon’s cycle (hence the tern “lunar” was incorporated and especially during the “full-moon” periods). In later legal use this term evolved to reference any unsoundness (ill-healthy) of mind rendering one incapable of civil transactions or management of personal affairs. A weakened sense is an “act of madness or folly” used from the 1580s.
“Lunacy” is the direct opposite of “reason.” The one devoid of reason is a lunatic.
Immediately associated is the “mental health” of King Nebuchadnezzar as described in Daniel 4. The King “lost” all mental health when he trusted in himself. The King regained his mental health when he returned and submitted to God for directions. This is found in 4:34-36, “But…I…raised my eyes toward heaven and my reason returned to me, and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever; for His dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom endures from generation to generation. All the inhabitants of the earth are of no account, but He does according to His will among the army of heaven and among the inhabitants of earth; and no one can fend off His hand or say to Him, ‘What have You done?’ At that time my reason returned to me.”
Currently the USA is living in real-time lunacy!
From Jim Gammon I received this email that well frames the focus of this article…
“From the great High Sheriff of the High Plains, who has gone south to get the chill out of his bones! Some observations worth reading:
“I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here.
“But today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee, I realized that everything is changing for the worse. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, no matter how much I pray, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same.
“I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life—so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone.
“We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!
“You cannot justify this insanity:
• If a guy pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.
• Somehow, it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
• Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.
• It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but was an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquired about it.
• Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.
• People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.
• People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees. (40% never finish)
• Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.
• Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang member or terrorist who jumps the southern fence is welcome.
• $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.
• If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
• People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.
• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan for us.
• Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
• Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.
• And…pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”
“Nothing makes sense anymore – no values, no morals, and no civility. People are dying of a Chinese virus, but it’s racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong but killing unborn babies is okay!
“WE have ALL been forewarned: ISAIAH 5:20 – Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship “America” has hit an iceberg, it’s taking on water, and is sinking fast. We Americans are drowning. Speak up while you still have breath and a voice for soon you will have neither if you don’t!

Well said and you can add multiple points from the current climate of lunacy that is controlling the population’s thoughts and behaviors.
Illustrating the reality of this condition is the below report that you will say “absurd!” BUT, is it any more absurd than the daily behaviors so visible by our current society?The Scripture is very specific in teaching that when mankind forsakes God and trusts in his own understanding that “reason” is lost. History is very specific in validating that when a nation loses its “reason” because it has forsaken God and trusted in his own understanding, it will be erased. The below report is astonishing but it lays bare and exposes the folly of our culture. It can be used for comedic scoffing but the danger in doing that is that we blind ourselves to the reality of our decaying culture.
Act incredulous that this is not happening and will not impact your life, but it is a reality that you will eventually accept. Joke about it; forward memes about it; ignore it; criticize it…but it is a real-time destructive factor in your civility and family!
Another word from the 1540s is the adjective “insidious.” It refers to that which is “deceitful, cunning, artful, treacherous.” It is a compound word from one term meaning to “plot, snare, ambush,” and from a second meaning to “sit on, occupy.” It is used to refer to cunning actions suggesting that the unfriendly is lying in wait, intending to entrap.
Our real-time lunacy is empowered by those intent on using cunning fears to entrap and disable our reason. We are being convinced that truth is no longer absolute; that science is the controlling god; that a fluid standard of right/wrong is within the individual’s choice; that following the multitudes in lunacy is the best thing to do.
Here is an astonishing illustration of where you are in this lunacy. Please check the links embedded as they take you to unbelievable actions.
An Italian Artist Auctioned Off an ‘Invisible Sculpture’ for $18,300. It’s Made Literally of Nothing
“It is a work that asks you to activate the power of the imagination,” Salvatore Garau said of his sculpture.
Taylor Dafoe, June 3, 2021
Italian conceptualist Salvatore Garau, via Instagram.
From the department of “They sold that for how much?!” comes today’s story, about an Italian artist who, for the cool price of €15,000 ($18,300), recently auctioned an artwork that is… well, nothing.
Last month, the 67-year-old artist Salvatore Garau sold an “immaterial sculpture”—which is to say that it doesn’t exist.
To be fair, the artist might disagree on conceptual grounds. For Garau, the artwork, titled lo sono (which translates to “I am”), finds form in its own nothingness. “The vacuum is nothing more than a space full of energy, and even if we empty it and there is nothing left, according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, that nothing has a weight,” he told the Spanish news outlet Diario AS. “Therefore, it has energy that is condensed and transformed into particles, that is, into us.”
Lo Sono went up for sale in May at the Italian auction house Art-Rite. The pre-sale estimate valued the piece between €6,000-9,000, according to AS, but competing bidders pushed the price tag to €15,000.
The lucky buyer went home with a certificate of authenticity and a set of instructions: the work, per Garau, must be exhibited in a private house in a roughly five-by-five-foot space free of obstruction.
“When I decide to ‘exhibit’ an immaterial sculpture in a given space, that space will concentrate a certain amount and density of thoughts at a precise point, creating a sculpture that, from my title, will only take the most varied forms,” the artist went on.
If you thought that was artsy claptrap, he goes on to draw a rather lofty comparison to the work: “After all, don’t we shape a God we’ve never seen?” he added.
The artist didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Lo Sono isn’t the only artwork of its kind in Garau’s oeuvre. In February of this year, at the Piazza Della Scala in Milan, the artist exhibited BUDDHA IN CONTEMPLATION, a similarly invisible sculpture demarcated by a square of tape on a cobble-stoned walkway. Meanwhile, this week, he installed APHRODITE CRIES in front of the New York City stock exchange. The effort, evidenced by an empty white circle, was supported by the Italian Cultural Institute.
“You don’t see it but it exists; it is made of air and spirit,” he explained in a video documenting the Milan piece. “It is a work that asks you to activate the power of the imagination, a power that anyone has, even those who don’t believe they have it.”
Indeed, many people on the internet seem to be having trouble tapping into that power. “So you really just taped a square and called that a sculpture?” reads the most-liked comment on the video page.
Mohammed Ali once said, “It ain’t bragging if you can back it up.” So, I’m gonna brag. I’ve got the best track record of political predictions anywhere on radio or TV.
I talk three hours a day on the radio with my show “Wayne Allyn Root: Raw & Unfiltered” on USA Radio Network. I also hosted 750 episodes of my own talk show for three years on Newsmax TV.
I’ve written literally thousands of newspaper columns and commentaries over the past decade. And I’ve written 14 books.
My 15th book comes out on Thursday, “The Great Patriot Protest & Boycott Book.” My book gives away the hard-to-find contact info that will enable 80 million Trump voters to hound, protest and boycott the top 100+ woke companies. With this book, if any company goes woke, we will make you go broke.
Altogether, I may be on the record publicly more than any political oddsmaker, analyst or host in America. I’ve made literally thousands of predictions. I’m batting at least .990. I’ve gotten maybe a half dozen predictions wrong out of thousands.
So, here’s my prediction for the California Governor’s Recall Election…
Gavin Newsom will be recalled and Larry Elder will be the next Governor of California. Except it won’t matter. Because after all the massive Democrat vote fraud is factored in, Gavin Newsom will survive the recall and Larry Elder will lose.
I think Larry’s great. I’ve been a fan of Larry Elder for decades. I started my national radio career as a guest host for Larry. I think Larry Elder is just what the doctor ordered for the tragic mess California is in.
Larry would win-if the legitimate votes were counted honestly. But they aren’t. As communist dictator Joseph Stalin once said, “Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.”
California is a failed socialist hellhole. Crooked Democrats count the votes in California (and any other Democrat-controlled state).
Larry Elder is about to find out what it’s like to be Donald J. Trump. He’s about to find out what it’s like to have an election stolen by brazen socialist/communist criminals who will stop at nothing to destroy America. He’s about to experience a rigged and stolen election. Just like Trump.
How do I know? Let me count the ways.
First, millions of illegal aliens are voting in California. When they get their drivers licenses at DMV, they are automatically registered to vote. By law, no one is allowed to ask if they are a citizen. No one can ask for valid ID. Millions of illegal alien voters tip the scale for failed socialist Democrats in California. It’s pretty simple- they vote for the party that won’t deport them and will keep welfare checks coming from cradle to grave.
Second, California has sent out tens of millions of mail-in ballots. Just like Biden-Trump in 2020, there is no way to know who’s who. There is no Voter ID. There is no chain of custody. There is no signature verification. There is nothing but millions of fake ballots, signed with fake names.
Just one of my fans has received 16 ballots at his California home. He lives there with only his wife and two kids. Sorry Larry, Democrats and their flood of fake ballots will never allow you to win this one. Third, California allows anyone to print out ballots on their home computer. That’s pure insanity.
Fourth, California has ballot harvesting. Anyone can collect thousands of fake ballots, fill them out and hand them in. Democrats have perfected this art.
Lastly, the actual ballots were designed with a flaw. You must fold the ballot to mail it. Computers that scan the votes often auto-cancel the name checked on the fold. Guess who’s name is on the fold out of 46 candidates? Larry Elder. What a coincidence. What a shocker!
So, I’m rooting for you Larry. I know you’d make a great Governor. But sadly, I know it won’t matter. The election is rigged. Your Governorship will be stolen, just as Trump’s presidency was stolen.
The question is, when will conservatives and patriots wake up and do something about it?
Americans opposed to COVID lockdowns and other government edicts supposedly related to the virus, as well as the “extremists” who believe the 2020 election was rigged, are at the top of the list of potential terror threats to the United States, according to a new advisory issued by the Biden administration’s Department of Homeland Security. “Conspiracy theorists” and purveyors of what the feds consider “disinformation” are now firmly in the crosshairs.
The Secretary of Homeland Security has issued a new National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin regarding the current heightened threat environment across the United States. The Homeland continues to face a diverse and challenging threat environment leading up to and following the 20th Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks as well religious holidays we assess could serve as a catalyst for acts of targeted violence. These threats include those posed by domestic terrorists, individuals and groups engaged in grievance-based violence, and those inspired or motivated by foreign terrorists and other malign foreign influences. These actors are increasingly exploiting online forums to influence and spread violent extremist narratives and promote violent activity. Such threats are also exacerbated by impacts of the ongoing global pandemic, including grievances over public health safety measures and perceived government restrictions.
Issued: August 13, 2021 02:00 pm Expires: November 11, 2021 02:00 pm
Through the remainder of 2021, racially- or ethnically-motivated violent extremists (RMVEs) and anti-government/anti-authority violent extremists will remain a national threat priority for the United States. These extremists may seek to exploit the emergence of COVID-19 variants by viewing the potential re-establishment of public health restrictions across the United States as a rationale to conduct attacks. Pandemic-related stressors have contributed to increased societal strains and tensions, driving several plots by domestic violent extremists, and they may contribute to more violence this year.
Additionally, leading up to the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula recently released its first English-language copy of Inspire magazine in over four years, which demonstrates that foreign terrorist organizations continue efforts to inspire U.S.-based individuals susceptible to violent extremist influences.
Historically, mass-casualty domestic violent extremist attacks linked to RMVEs have targeted houses of worship and crowded commercial facilities or gatherings. Some RMVEs advocate via online platforms for a race war and have stated that civil disorder provides opportunities to engage in violence in furtherance of ideological objectives. The reopening of institutions, including schools, as well as several dates of religious significance over the next few months, could also provide increased targets of opportunity for violence though there are currently no credible or imminent threats identified to these locations.
Foreign and domestic threat actors, to include foreign intelligence services, international terrorist groups and domestic violent extremists, continue to introduce, amplify, and disseminate narratives online that promote violence, and have called for violence against elected officials, political representatives, government facilities, law enforcement, religious communities or commercial facilities, and perceived ideologically-opposed individuals. There are also continued, non-specific calls for violence on multiple online platforms associated with DVE ideologies or conspiracy theories on perceived election fraud and alleged reinstatement, and responses to anticipated restrictions relating to the increasing COVID cases.
Ideologically motivated violent extremists fueled by personal grievances and extremist ideological beliefs continue to derive inspiration and obtain operational guidance through the consumption of information shared in certain online communities. This includes information regarding the use of improvised explosive devices and small arms.
Violent extremists may use particular messaging platforms or techniques to obscure operational indicators that provide specific warning of a pending act of violence.
Law enforcement have expressed concerns that the broader sharing of false narratives and conspiracy theories will gain traction in mainstream environments, resulting in individuals or small groups embracing violent tactics to achieve their desired objectives. With a diverse array of threats, DHS is concerned that increased outbreaks of violence in some locations, as well as targeted attacks against law enforcement, may strain local resources.
Nation-state adversaries have increased efforts to sow discord. For example, Russian, Chinese and Iranian government-linked media outlets have repeatedly amplified conspiracy theories concerning the origins of COVID-19 and effectiveness of vaccines; in some cases, amplifying calls for violence targeting persons of Asian descent.
How We Are Responding
DHS will continue to identify and evaluate calls for violence, including online activity associated with the spread of disinformation, conspiracy theories, and false narratives, by known or suspected threat actors and provide updated information, as necessary.
DHS continues to encourage the public to maintain awareness of the evolving threat environment and report suspicious activity.
DHS is coordinating with state and local law enforcement and public safety partners to maintain situational awareness of potential violence in their jurisdictions and maintain open lines of communication with federal partners.
DHS is also advancing authoritative sources of information to debunk and, when possible, preempt false narratives and intentional disinformation, and providing educational materials to promote resilience to the risks associated with interacting with and spreading disinformation, conspiracy theories and false narratives.
More broadly, DHS remains committed to identifying and preventing terrorism and targeted violence while protecting the privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties of all persons.
Make note of your surroundings and the nearest security personnel.
Government agencies will provide details about emerging threats as information is identified. The public is encouraged to listen to local authorities and public safety officials.
If You See Something, Say Something®. Report suspicious activity to local law enforcement or call 911.
The National Terrorism Advisory System provides Americans with alert information on homeland security threats. It is distributed by the Department of Homeland Security. More information is available at: www.dhs.gov/advisories. To receive mobile updates: twitter.com/dhsgov

“Extremists may seek to exploit the emergence of COVID-19 variants by viewing the potential re-establishment of public health restrictions across the US as a rationale to conduct attacks,” Homeland Security bureaucrats claimed in the bulletin, acknowledging that there is no specific threat or credible information that it knows about suggesting that anyone is actually planning anything.
Also under scrutiny are those Americans suspicious about the 2020 election — a number that polls suggest includes a majority of Americans and an overwhelming supermajority of Republicans. The mostly peaceful protest on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol, which Democrats and their media allies continue falsely referring to as an “insurrection” despite nobody having been charged with anything resembling insurrection, is key to the narrative. There was no mention about growing suspicions of FBI involvement in the January 6 incident.
“These actors are increasingly exploiting online forums to influence and spread violent extremist narratives and promote violent activity,” Biden’s “Homeland Security” bureaucrats claimed without giving any examples of anyone promoting violent activity. “Such threats are also exacerbated by impacts of the ongoing global pandemic, including grievances over public health safety measures and perceived government restrictions.”
Speaking to NBC News, which helped amplify the government’s propaganda against Americans, federal spokesmen echoed those claims. “DHS has seen an increasing but modest level of individuals calling for violence in response to the unsubstantiated claims of fraud related to the 2020 election fraud and the alleged ‘reinstatement’ of former President Trump,” the DHS spokesman was was quoted as saying by NBC News, adding that the concerns are becoming more mainstream.
Tackling so-called “thought crimes” is becoming a central element of the administration’s supposed effort to prevent terror. “DHS is focused on the nexus between violence and extremist ideologies,” a spokesman for the agency was quoted as saying, with “extremist ideologies” being essentially any ideologies the Biden administration disagrees with including ideas such as the U.S. Constitution and resistance to COVID tyranny.
The warnings about the alleged threat of conspiracy theorists, civil libertarians and election-integrity advocates came shortly after the FBI came under fire for urging Americans to spy on and report their own family members for “extremist” views. Critics blasted the cryptic call as a throwback to the barbarous Stasi in Communist-ruled East Germany, which encouraged citizens to constantly surveil and report each other to the murderous regime.
While again acknowledging that they have no specific information about any specific alleged threat, Homeland Security claimed that the U.S. government was not “prepared” for the January 6 incident because it did not spy on Americans closely enough. And so, DHS “leaders” cited by NBC vowed to more closely monitor social media and especially “extremist rhetoric.” DHS is also reportedly working with local law-enforcement agencies on the issue.
“We are currently in a heightened terrorism-related threat environment, and DHS is aware of previous instances of violence associated with the dissemination of disinformation, false narratives and conspiracy theories about the 2020 election,” the DHS spokesman said, dismissing widespread and well-founded public concerns over election integrity as “disinformation” and “conspiracy theories.”
In general, though, the government claims to believe that threats from everyday Americans are lurking everywhere, except among the left-wing extremists burning down U.S. cities and attacking police. “Pandemic-related stressors have contributed to increased societal strains and tensions, driving several plots by domestic violent extremists, and they may contribute to more violence this year,” the DHS claimed.
Unspecified “religious holidays” may also trigger terror attacks, the Biden administration said. The United States “continues to face a diverse and challenging threat environment leading up to and following the 20th Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks as well religious holidays we assess could serve as a catalyst for acts of targeted violence,” the DHS bulletin argued.
After repeatedly emphasizing that conservative and liberty-minded Americans are the main supposed terror threat to America, the administration reluctantly acknowledged supposed foreign threats, too. “These threats include those posed by domestic terrorists, individuals and groups engaged in grievance-based violence, and those inspired or motivated by foreign terrorists and other malign foreign influences,” the bulletin claimed.
There were no warnings issued about domestic terror groups such as Antifa or Black Lives Matter. The two communist organizations, which have numerous links to hostile foreign regimes and organizations, destroyed billions in property and were responsible for numerous deaths last year in violent riots that swept across major cities nationwide. Even RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) in Congress such as Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa said it was a “grave mistake” for the administration to ignore those threats.
Meanwhile, despite the supposed concerns about terror and national security, the Southern border with Mexico overseen by the same federal agency remains wide open. Because of that, actual terrorists with dangerous intent have been waltzing across the border into the “Homeland” practically uninterrupted on a regular basis.
Consider the recent arrest of two Yemeni men on the government’s no-fly and FBI terrorist watch lists who were arrested while illegally crossing the border from Mexico in January and March. According to U.S. Border Patrol officials, over a thousand illegal aliens each day walk across the border and are not even pursued because agents are so busy taking care of the growing tsunami of children showing up at the border.
Of course, legitimate counter-terrorism experts focused on actual terror threats to the United States were purged from federal service during the Obama administration — especially those who knew that jihadists and violent communists such as Antifa posed the most significant domestic terror threat to America’s national security.
The expertise and training programs developed by actual experts were replaced with discredited “countering violent extremism” (CVE) nonsense focusing on the largely imaginary threat of “white supremacists.” Critics say that is how the FBI and other agencies missed obvious warning signs and clues about the Boston Marathon attack, the Orlando nightclub massacre, the San Bernadino slaughter, and other jihadist terror attacks.
Now, as The New American has been warning for decades, the end goal is coming into view more clearly: Turning the massive federal intelligence and law-enforcement apparatus against mainstream Americans concerned about the lawlessness coming out of the federal government. If the scheming is not checked by Congress and state governments, the administration fully intends to further weaponize the power of the federal government against its own citizens.
In a widely criticized document entitled National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism, the administration made clear that it is not just violence that is at issue — but ideas and thoughts that supposedly might possibly lead a person to commit a violent act. And it will not just be the federal government involved.
“Preventing domestic terrorism and reducing the factors that fuel it demand a multifaceted response across the Federal Government and beyond,” Biden says in an introduction to the National Strategy document. “That includes working with our critical partners in state, local, tribal, and territorial governments and in civil society, the private sector, academia, and local communities, as well as with our allies and foreign partners.”
But of course, only some ideas that might lead to violence are actually in the crosshairs. For example, consider that the admitted terrorist Floyd Corkins told the FBI that he was inspired to commit terrorism and mass-murder against conservatives and Christians by the far-left hate group known as the Southern Poverty Law Center. And yet, instead of targeting the radical ideology of the SPLC, the feds work with the discredited organization to target mainstream Americans.
Ironically, perhaps, the mass-murdering dictatorship ruling mainland China sounded a lot like the Biden administration in its demonization of those who reject total government power under the guise of keeping people safe from COVID.
For instance, through its mouthpiece Global Times, the Chinese Communist Party used an article about the terror alert to blast “loopholes” in the Constitution’s “federal system” that have “restricted” the power of the federal government when “encountering a crisis.” Some states, the regime said, are “reluctant to do the right thing to combat the epidemic.” Part of the problem is that “Americans advocate individualism,” the CCP said, slamming opposition to mask mandates, vaccine mandates, and travel restrictions.
With each day that passes, it is becoming more and more clear that the U.S. government — using rhetoric and talking points almost identical to those of the murderous Chinese Communist Party — is being weaponized against Americans and freedom. The outlandish new “terror” warning painting tens of millions of mainstream Americans with legitimate concerns about individual liberty and election fraud as terrorists should be a wake-up call to all.
