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

So, Here We Are At "Resolution Day"...
A semi-annual "wake-up" call for today's real American men and women (along with the celebration of some of those good folks). You may have seen this before, but no matter. Read it again. It's that important.
 
RESOLUTION 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, here we are at "PUT ASIDE DELUSIONS Day" That's what the original "Resolution 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 of Independence, 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.

A Recap Of The Recent Past And A Prescription For The Future
It's time to get serious; it's time to get angry.

SO, A BIT MORE THAN TWO YEARS AGO, a virus cultivated and enhanced by Anthony Fauci and his associates, first in North Carolina (and possibly at Ft. Detrick, Maryland, which was shut down in great haste for non-credible reasons in the summer of 2019) and then at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, was introduced into the world. Whether that introduction was by design or by reckless accident remains unclear.

Regardless of the how or why of its release into circulation, the virus-- known by the shorthand label "C19" on these pages-- promptly began delivering benefits to certain special interests.

For example, authoritarian political ambitions overall and everywhere were much advanced by the 24/7, wall-to-wall hyperbolic and hysteria-inducing terror-mongering served up by virtually the entire so-called "mainstream media". In America, the virus served as a pretext for fraud-vulnerable voting practices in the 2020 national election-- special rules for which had coincidentally been put in place by Democrat operatives in critical swing states shortly before the virus made the news-- resulting (again, with a great deal of media support) in a declared sweep of both houses of Congress and the Presidency by that party.

Certain business interests invested in the technology of on-line interfacing and online retail enjoyed ballooning profits. At the same time, these beneficiary interests watched large portions of their brick-and-mortar competitors go under.

Most notably, perhaps (or most significantly for the as-yet-unrealized long-haul, anyway), snake-oil salesmen with very possibly a larger agenda than mere immediate profits found huge markets with the newly-emergent authoritarian governments for expensive concoctions peddled as "vaccines" against the virus.

These pretenses at medicine offer no demonstrable efficacy at immunizing anyone, nor even any proven therapeutic benefit of reduced disease severity against what is, after all, an illness not even noticed by the vast majority of infected persons. At the same time, they carry considerable risk of severe immediate adverse side effects and very possibly the long-term destruction of the recipient's immune system which could result in many tragic early deaths in the years to come.

And yet the creators of this snake-oil (which include persons in both government office and the American oligarchy) have been paid many $billions for these fraudulent products, while enjoying endlessly-repeated endorsement and support by supposed public-interest institutions like the CDC, the FDA and the NIH.

Since the beginning of last year those whose capture of the levers of national power by exploitation of the "dread virus" fraud have done their best to gut the rule of law, drain away American wealth, impose a false national historical narrative, put our cities into chaos and turn Americans against one another with lies.

Other Voices (followed by an important afterword)

The Malicious, Historically Illiterate 1619 Project Keeps Rolling On
by George Will

The New York Times is like God, who, if Genesis reported Creation correctly, beheld His handiwork and decided “it was very good.” The Times is comparably pleased with itself concerning its creation, “The 1619 Project.”

This began in August 2019 as a special edition of the paper’s Sunday magazine. Now it has become a book by which the Times continues attempting to “reframe” U.S. history. In the Times, an advertisement for the Times’s book describes it as “a dramatic expansion of a groundbreaking work of journalism.” That description damages journalism’s reputation for respecting facts, which the 2019 writing that begot this book did not do. The 1619 Project’s tendentiousness reeks of political purpose.

The Times’s original splashy assertion – slightly fudged after the splash garnered a Pulitzer Prize – was that the American Revolution, the most important event in our history, was shameful because a primary reason it was fought was to preserve slavery. The war was supposedly ignited by a November 1775 British offer of freedom to Blacks who fled slavery and joined British forces. Well.

That offer came after increasingly volcanic American reactions to various British provocations: After the 1765 Stamp Act. After the 1770 Boston Massacre. After the 1773 Boston Tea Party. After the 1774 Coercive Acts (including closure of Boston’s port) and other events of “The Long Year of Revolution” (the subtitle of Mary Beth Norton’s “1774”). And after, in 1775, the April 19 battles of Lexington and Concord, the June 17 battle of Bunker Hill and George Washington on July 3 assuming command of the Continental Army.

Writing history is not like doing physics. But event A cannot have caused event B if B began before A.

Illuminating Anniversaries For This Week!

"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
