And now for a musical interlude.
This is the kind of thing we need to see throughout every corner of the Deep State. The New York Post reports.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is cleaning house at the State Department, according to a report.
Staffers in the offices of deputy secretary of state for management and resources as well as [a] counselor were shown the door Thursday, according to CBS News.
Many of those let go were on the building’s seventh floor — top-floor bigs — a symbolically important sign to the rest of the diplomatic corps that their new boss has different priorities than the last one.
On Rush’s show this week he covered two articles on the subject of the Shadow Government/Deep State vs. President Trump, and by extension their war against us, the regular Americans who voted for Trump and the changes in policy that he promised to bring about. The first article is by Michael Walsh and the second is by Victor Davis Hanson. Let’s first take a look at what Rush has to say about this subject, and I recommend that everyone who is on the right needs to really understand just what we are up against.
And by the way, these people don’t want to allow the election to succeed. They want to subvert and stop us, the American people from being able to change the direction of the country and get it back on track. The K street lobbyists, the permanent bureaucrats, the Obama appointees and all of the other detritus that makes up the Masters of the Universe™ who think they are better than us, superior to us and who have nothing but contempt for us are working 24/7 to undermine the will of the people. That’s you and me; regular Americans who have had enough.
The title of Michael Walsh’s piece at PJ Media — and his stuff as appeared at National Review; it’s appeared at the New York Post, any number of places — is “Enough with This ‘Spy Game‘” And his thrust here is on the intel community and who, what, where, why regarding Trump. “With the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn in the face of a howling media mob, the knives are now out not only for other administration officials, but for President Trump himself. Make no mistake about what’s happening here.”
His piece is headlined, by the way, “The Empire Strikes Back.” That’s the actual title of his piece. “Make no mistake about what’s happening here: This is a rolling coup attempt, organized by elements of the intelligence community, particularly CIA and NSA, abetted by Obama-era holdovers in the understaffed Justice Department (Sally Yates, take a bow) and the lickspittles of the leftist media, all of whom have signed on with the ‘Resistance’ in order to overturn the results of the November election.” Walsh, I think, is a spook, former spook, in addition to everything else he is.
So right up front he’s admitting that this is “a rolling coup” made up of various players here in order to overturn the results of the November election. He goes on to talk about Mike Flynn as “a good man who saw the enemy clearly, and had the courage to name it, saw Russia not as an enemy but a geopolitical adversary with whom we could make common cause against Islam…” That upsets the apple cart in the intelligence community who want Russia designated as an enemy with whom we have nothing in common.
“As for the media, having previously failed to take down Trump aides Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway, Flynn was the next best thing; their joy today is unbounded” at getting his scalp. “Is this what you thought you voted for in November? Is this how you thought American democracy worked? Is this the country you want to live in? Welcome to the Deep State, the democracy-sapping embeds at the heart of our democracy who have not taken the expulsion of the Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party lightly.”
Rush then goes on to highlight the article from venerable historian Victor David Hanson.
Now to Victor Davis Hanson. And I’m picking this up at the conclusion where he details current circumstances and the reasons why all this is happening. Under the subhead: “What has the often boisterous Trump done in his first month to earn calls for his death, forced removal, or resignation?”
And, by the way, on the reference here to his death, Mr. Hanson cites the three or four published articles on how to assassinate Trump, the beauty of assassinating Trump, the necessity to assassinate Trump, and the morality of doing it. Documents it. Quotes the people saying so. Quotes others with their own ideas for forced removal or making Trump resign. So after documenting all of what Walsh has just pointed out here, what’s Trump done to earn all this?
Well, first let’s look at current circumstances. “The stock market is reaching all-time highs. Polls show business optimism rising. The Rasmussen poll puts Trump’s approval rating at 55 percent. Compared with Obama in 2009, at the same point in his young administration, Trump has issued about the same number of executive orders.
“For all his war on the press, Trump has so far not ordered wiretaps on any reporter on the grounds that he is a criminal co-conspirator,” as he did James Rosen at Fox News, “nor has he gone after the phone records of the Associated Press,” as Obama’s Justice Department did. To little notice, people in the media. They didn’t care that James Rosen was wiretapped; he’s at Fox. And gone after the phone records of the AP, the AP said, “Well, he must need ’em, he’s Obama.”
“Trump’s edicts are mostly common-sense and non-controversial: green-lighting the Keystone and Dakota pipelines, freezing federal hiring, resuming work on a previously approved wall along the Mexican border, prohibiting retiring federal officials from lobbying activity for five years, and pruning away regulations.” All these things he said he was gonna do.
This article from Alfred S. Regnery at Breitbart tells us that the establishment Republicans are dragging their feet on the Trump agenda. This is not entirely surprising and so it will be up to us to put pressure on every Senator and congress critter we can think of starting with Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. Therefore I have typed up a general letter that you are free to use and adapt to your own needs. If you are one of those who wants change, then please take action and send some letters. Yes, emails are faster, but the people on Capitol Hill tend to take actual physical letters more seriously, so get your stamps out and fire up your printers.
Senator Mitch McConnell
317 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington DC 20510
Dear Senator McConnell,
I am writing to you to let you know that like millions of Americans I voted for Donald Trump for president and we are anxious to see his conservative agenda put into action by loyal Republicans (and bi-partisan Democrats) as soon as possible. After eight years of corruption, negligence, and incompetence from the previous administration we finally have a chance to put the nation back on a firm foundation with a strong economy, a commitment to a strong national defense and government that works for, rather than against the interests of its people.
Sadly it seems that many of those in congress have not gotten the message of the recent election; the message that we Americans want change and decisive action from our elected representatives in order to rise to the many challenges that we face as a nation.
At a time when millions of people are out of work and the economy is still struggling, it makes no sense to delay the president’s agenda. Even now, many millions of American citizens have been trying to find work in a tight job market. We should be helping Americans find work by solving our economic problems. In order to do that we need to work to pass the president’s plans and policies into law as soon as possible.
The media reports that Republicans on Capitol Hill have been dragging their feet. I must tell you that this news is very disappointing to those of us who vote regularly in both elections and especially in Republican primaries. American voters want action, not delays.
Therefore I urge you not to make the mistake of failing to support the Trump agenda. Americans are urgently waiting for action from Republicans in Washington who have it in their power to get the country back on the right track again. America can be great again. I urge you and all Republicans to get moving now on behalf of the American people.
Your Town and State
The New York Times brings us this article from Nicholas Kristof who makes the argument that the attitude and tone of the left, to say nothing of their current tactics, is working only to alienate the independent and middle of the road voters who voted for Trump. The left’s tendency to automatically demonize their opponents is indeed paying dividends, for Republicans, by convincing many people they were correct to cast their vote for Donald Trump.
This sounds to me like damage control on the part of the NYT. Certainly, there are some Democrats who are at least somewhat observant who have realized that the current leftist scorched-earth strategy is only going to alienate voters across the country who voted for Trump because they see real problems in their lives that need solutions. However, the left is not motivated by logic and reason but rather by rage and hatred.
Emotional and vengeful leftists cannot be reasoned with and will not listen to any suggestions from media that they need to cool down. We must expect the current leftist war on regular Americans to continue at least until the next mid-term election in which the left is likely to be crushed by the voters that they are attacking. Only then will they likely pull back and re-evaluate their tactics. Note that they will never question their goals, only how they expect to get to them. Their tactics will change but they will still be the enemy of us all. They will likely look for less annoying means to trick Americans into accepting their anti-American agenda.
A few days ago, I blithely tweeted a warning that Democrats often sound patronizing when speaking of Trump voters. That provoked a vehement reaction.
“Sorry,” Jason tweeted back, “but if someone is supporting a racist ignoramus who wants to round up brown ppl and steal my money, I’m gonna patronize.”
“This is normalization of a hateful ideology and it’s shameful,” protested another.
“My tone isn’t patronizing,” one person responded. “It’s hostile. Intentionally. I won’t coddle those who refuse to recognize my humanity.”
“What a great idea!” another offered. “Let’s recruit a whole bunch of bigoted unthinking lizard brains because we could possibly ‘WIN!’”
And so the comments went, registering legitimate anxieties about President Trump — but also the troubling condescension that worried me in the first place. I fear that the (richly deserved) animus toward Trump is spilling over onto all his supporters.
And by the way, if you want to see how correct my assessment is, just take a look at the comments on the New York Times site for this article. What you will see is plenty of hatred and bile for regular Americans in flyover country for the crime of voting against the leftist agenda.
Blogger Those Who Can See always brings us very well researched and well-referenced essays that delve into specific subjects, usually related in some way to the broad general topic of Human Biodiversity. Thus with this latest article that looks at the social, political and economic cost of Diversity. And of course, we don’t mean diversity of views, opinions or philosophy, but rather the only kind of diversity that the left values, the diversity of racial and ethnic composition.
The left likes to claim that “diversity is our strength” but as we can see from this essay we pay a very high price for this kind of diversity and our society has suffered for it. The reality is that the social and economic costs of imposing this kind of artificial diversity on Western Civilization has been and continues to be high. The desire of most Americans to close the border to uncontrolled illegal immigration is not arbitrary but is a rational response to the perception that our country is being swamped by foreign nationals who do not respect and have no interest in the norms, values, and institutions that made our country great. The sooner we realize this, the better off we will be.
Many shrugged while millions of Mestizo peasants took over blue collar work in the U.S. But now that the white collar are being hit as well, people are starting to take notice:
The H-1B program is designed to let U.S. companies hire foreigners at prevailing wages when they can’t find qualified Americans. And U.S. companies, especially those in Silicon Valley, have been clamoring for years to raise the cap of 85,000 so that they can hire more foreign workers. They’ve long denied the charges that they’ve exaggerated the employee shortage, so they can instead reduce wages by importing workers. … But now we know major H-1B users have in fact rigged the system to do exactly that.
The abuse of the H1B program is nothing new. The idea of there being a worker shortage is a complete myth. Companies just don’t want to pay the market wage. Instead they’d rather import workers from overseas. And even if they aren’t cheaper, as this article maintains, they’re still more easily exploited. If you’re an American and you hate your job, you have the option of quitting and finding another one. Easier said than done, but still better than what the “guest worker” has to face, which is deportation.
Henry Wolff at American Renaissance writes about a recent discussion forum that featured both Bill Kristol of The Weekly Standard and noted social scientist Charles Murray, author of “The Bell Curve” and “Coming Apart.” In this discussion, Bill Kristol argued that the white working class needs to be replaced by third world immigrants because they are lazy and spoiled. (emphasis added)
Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in? Seriously, you can make the case—this is going on too long and this is too crazy, probably, and I hope this thing isn’t being videotaped or ever shown anywhere. Whatever tiny, pathetic future I have is going to totally collapse.
You can make a case that America has been great because every—I think John Adams said this—basically if you’re a free society, a capitalist society, after two or three generations of hard work everyone becomes kind of decadent, lazy, spoiled—whatever. Then, luckily, you have these waves of people coming in from Italy, Ireland, Russia, and now Mexico, who really want to work hard and really want to succeed and really want their kids to live better lives than them and aren’t sort of clipping coupons or hoping that they can hang on and meanwhile grew up as spoiled kids and so forth. In that respect, I don’t know how this moment is that different from the early 20th century.
Clearly, Mr. Kristol knows that his elitist views are not popular with regular Americans and while he wants to keep them quiet he also wants to continue with the open borders status quo. That means bringing in lots of foreign nationals from poor third world countries who will drive down wages and swamp the already overburdened social services that are paid for by the very same people who Mr. Kristol holds in contempt.
Meanwhile Anonymous Conservative writes in this post on the subject of immigrant voting in Germany that is being pushed by the same kind of elitists in that government and the forces that drive people like Mr. Kristol to adopt these clearly destructive ideas. The underlying reason is that the left and the elites are driven by their r-strategy in an effort to make themselves feel safe from K-strategists.
Leftists are programmed to head to strange foreign lands and meekly be ruled by hostile foreigners. The only way the rich r-strategists can create the environment they are designed for is to import as many violent exotic foreigners as they can, and then bestow upon them voting rights.
If they didn’t do this, they would be entering the economic collapse in a nation filled with K-strategist fellow citizens who would destroy them in the coming K-selection of the Apocalypse.
They don’t know this. All they know is they like exotic foreigners, and they feel a closeness and attachment to them. This is exacerbated as they feel an irrational hatred for the K-strategist citizens of their nation, and see how the K-strategists oppose the importation of the foreigners. Where the fondness for foreigners meets the realization that the K-strategists they hate oppose the foreigner’s entry, it combines to produce an uncontrollable urge to import as many foreigners as possible and give them power over everyone.
Over at Breitbart, one of my favorite writers goes by the pen name Virgil. And in this article, he lays out the scope and depth of what has come to be called The Deep State. Now some of the information is a bit dated since this is an older article. But I wanted to get to this nonetheless because it is important to understand that there is now an ongoing war between the Deep State, which includes what we have been calling “the establishment” and the Trump administration and its supporters. This will be an ongoing fight, so it is vital to understand just who the enemy is.
So now let’s get to the corpus of what we’re talking about. The term “Deep State” refers to the complex of bureaucrats, technocrats, and plutocrats that likes things just the way they are and wants to keep them like that—elections be damned.
Some might say that “Deep State” is just a synonym for the “Establishment,” and yet “Deep State” refers to a larger grouping, not just to the stereotypical elite “chattering class.” We can also observe that a Deep State can be found in just about every country in the world, but our focus here, of course, is on the United States.
And here in America, the Deep State has its own political consciousness, and it aims to survive any change of government with its collective will—and self-interest—fully intact.
Normally, the Deep State is hidden, albeit, at the same time, hiding in plain sight. That is, while nobody has “Deep State” on his or her business card, the reality of the Deep State is overwhelming: It’s not just the hulking office buildings of the Federal Triangle in downtown DC, it’s also the taxpayer-funded mini-metropolises that have sprouted up in Bethesda, Maryland, Crystal City, Virginia, and a dozen other hubs in and around the I-495 Beltway. (Hence the familiar phrase, “Beltway Bandits”; Virgil can attest that federal contractors have assumed a kind of ironic affection for that phrase—at least in their private conversations.)
A careful taxonomy of the Deep State must begin, of course, with the governmental bureaucracy, which, because of civil-service protections, does not change when one political party or the other takes control of the White House or Congress. Today, there are about 2.8 million civilian federal employees, as well 1.3 million in the uniformed military.
This article from Byron Roth appeared about a year ago and while the author is overly pessimistic at the end of the essay based on what we now know, it’s still a great bit of writing that ties together developments in the sciences of genetics and evolutionary biology with the current political movement against the left and the corporate and political establishments. These different areas may seem at first glance to have little to do with each other, but we can follow a direct line of cause and effect from our modern understanding of genetics to how our genetic heritage affects our political systems.
And it should be noted that the arguments made in this essay are not far removed from those that motivated the development of the Manosphere as is related in the podcast posted below. The arguments of leftist feminism are also based on this “blank slate” notion. In the view of the left Man’s nature is malleable and open to change based on the correct social policy. The idea that humans are far less plastic and that most of our behaviors are hard-wired by millions of years of evolution is rejected because that would mean the refutation of the leftist agenda.
The social sciences have long-held the view that there are no inherent differences between ethnic groups and any differences that do exist are the result of environmental influences. But we have a century’s worth of data that indicates otherwise. Temperament, intelligence, artistic and musical ability and a host of other characteristics are heavily influenced by our genetic makeup. And what really undermines the whole of leftist thinking is not just the fact that individuals differ in such characteristics, but the fact that groups do as well. And of course, our whole social policy universe is explicitly based on the assumption that there are no real differences between groups. But the accumulated scientific evidence tells a different story. And that makes this view incompatible with multiculturalism, political correctness, and an open borders policy. It is no surprise then that this scientific understanding has been consistently attacked by academics in the social sciences.
Enormous strides have been made in recent years in unraveling the evolutionary basis of human nature. Among other things, this work totally undermines the Behaviorist view that everything human is environmentally determined. Behaviorism, for decades, hindered serious progress in the social sciences; it is well that it be put to rest.
Unfortunately, the pervasive influence of Cultural Marxism and the tactics of its adherents have prevented evolutionary approaches from spreading widely in the human sciences. This is apparent in the persistent rejection of any discussion of the biological basis of human racial differences, nowhere more so than in issues relating to IQ. This rejection is unfazed by the fact that there are few, if any, constructs in the social sciences more powerful than IQ. It correlates with and predicts an extremely wide range of social phenomena including, but not limited to, school and economic performance, criminal behavior, differences in wealth between nations, and demographic groups within nations. Among research psychologists, this is well known and not particularly controversial. Equally well-known is that, based on decades of research, IQ is, in large measure, genetically determined.
While I don’t always agree with everything Roosh V has to say, this podcast is very entertaining and instructive regarding the history of the Manosphere and how it eventually led to our current populist political and cultural revolution. It may seem unlikely, but over the course of fifteen years or so we went from small out-of-the-way internet blogs and forums discussing the modern relationship problems between men and women given the overwhelming force of left-wing feminism to the overturning of the establishment and the election of Donald J. Trump. You might be skeptical that there could be any connection between these seemingly disparate things, but you will have a better understanding after listening to this podcast.
Blogger Disobedient Media reports that Donald J. Trump has already filed with the FEC for the election in 2020. The reason this is both funny and important is that it puts a huge roadblock in the way of various left-wing non-profits that might otherwise use the next four years to engage in anti-Trump and anti-conservative political activity. Trump continues to outmaneuver the left.
More importantly, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations would no longer be able to engage in “political speech” which could theoretically affect the results of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election without running the risk of losing their nonprofit status. The move effectively bars interest groups from creating nonprofits which they could funnel money into for the purposes of opposing Trump’s initiatives. This will likely create chaos for political opponents of Trump such as George Soros, who has sunk significant amounts of money into various nonprofit groups with the intent of opposing Trump’s government.
