...where real knowledge-- and actual solutions-- intersect with real Americans!

So, Yesterday Was "Declaration Day"
Did you do it?

DECLARATION DAY. That is,

"NO MORE PARALYSIS Day"
"NO MORE DENIAL Day"
"NO MORE, "I DON'T DARE..." Day"
"NO MORE, "THE BAD MEN WILL NOTICE ME SO I'D BETTER NOT!" Day"
"NO MORE, "I'LL WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO GO FIRST..." Day"

In short, here we are at,

"GET OFF YOUR ASS Day"
"GET LOUD AND PROUD AND UN-COWED Day"

I'm talking about,

"DON'T STOP 'TIL YOU'VE GOT LIBERTY AND THE RULE OF LAW Day"
"FACE THE FACTS Day"
"NO TIME TO RELAX Day"...

More than anything, we've just had "PUT ASIDE DELUSIONS Day" That's what the original "Declaration day" was all about. It was the day the American colonists finally acknowledged that the people they had been entreating to respect their rights actually didn't want them to have their rights.

It was the day the American colonists finally acknowledged that the government operatives they had been petitioning and politicking and lobbying and arguing with weren't misled or mistaken or suffering from misunderstanding, needing only to have things explained a bit better, or argued a bit more authoritatively. Instead, as the colonists realized and finally admitted by way of the Declaration, those operatives were their competitors. Those operatives were the colonists' opponents. Efforts to persuade them were pointless-- they admitted to no limits on their power and had no interest in curbing its abuse, which was being practiced for their benefit.

Random Comments On The Current Madness
You can't throw a stone blindfolded anymore without hitting five things that richly deserve it...

A RECENT EDITION of the Detroit News contained the assertion by John E. Johnson Jr., the interim Executive Director of Michigan's Department of Civil Rights, that "COVID-19 had a disparate impact on people of color." Johnson even goes so far as to say that "no one disputes that" ridiculous assertion.
As can be gathered, I dispute that "disparate impact" absurdity.

Here's the simple rebuttal: ...

A MAN WAS CROWNED 'MISS NEVADA' last week, in another prostration of America at the feet of militant "transgender" delusion-boosters. The rationale appears to be that the superficial appearance of being a woman is sufficient qualification.

In light of the new standards, I think the next beauty pageant should include entrants who are simply drag queens, or even, maybe, animatronic women built to look the part and programmed to view themselves as women. Both look the part, and both are just as much women as the fellow given the Miss Nevada crown. ...

MORE IN THE "TRANSGENDER" LUNACY category: Real female athletes will be made to compete against men in the Olympic games later this month-- delusional men, granted, but physical men, nonetheless. Unless the real women all refuse, and boycott the games, of course, as they should.

Real women should boycott as a matter of principle (both as athletes and as fans). The athletes should do so also because otherwise they will compete in grossly unfair pretend contests with largely foregone conclusions. ...

IT IS INCREASINGLY CLEAR that the Deep State orchestrated the political theater elements of the events of January 6 at the Capital. See the reporting on this from Revolver News here. ...

SPEAKING OF THE DEEP STATE, it appears that Tucker Carlson has been targeted for illegal hacks and surveillance. See this discussion by Matt Walsh, in which he parses out the acknowledgement-by-dodgy-denial of the NSA-- aspects of which will be very familiar to any educated filer who has ever had to deal with a balky tax agency...

It's like the experience of every parent trying to get straight answers from a pimply adolescent about some escapade of delinquency. Of course, unlike a bureaucrat or a teenager trying to sow confusion, the government illegally spying on a journalist is serious as a heart attack... ...

The 'Conspiracy Theory' Charade
How government and media use the phrase to suppress opposition.
by James Bovard

Biden’s “National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism” report last week declared that “enhancing faith in American democracy” requires “finding ways to counter the influence and impact of dangerous conspiracy theories.” In recent decades, conspiracy theories have multiplied almost as fast as government lies and cover-ups. While many allegations have been ludicrously far-fetched, the political establishment and media routinely attach the “conspiracy theory” label to any challenge to their dominance.

According to Cass Sunstein, Harvard Law professor and Obama’s regulatory czar, a conspiracy theory is “an effort to explain some event or practice by reference to the machinations of powerful people, who have also managed to conceal their role.” Reasonable citizens are supposed to presume that government creates trillions of pages of new secrets each year for their own good, not to hide anything from the public.

"I confidently trust that the American people will prove themselves...too wise not to detect the false pride or the dangerous ambitions or the selfish schemes which so often hide themselves under that deceptive cry of mock patriotism: 'Our country, right or wrong!' They will not fail to recognize that our dignity, our free institutions and the peace and welfare of this and coming generations of Americans will be secure only as we cling to the watchword of true patriotism: 'Our country--when right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right.'"
-Senator Carl Schurz, October 17, 1899
