Will Americans Have A Country When Biden And His Democrats Are Finished With It?

11 01 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

If Donald Trump had served a second consecutive four-year term as our President, it is possible that China would have been forced to pay enormous reparations and/or restitution.  Amounting to trillions of dollars—and paid to Americans and others for having unleashed the devastating Coronavirus pandemic that has killed so many, and hurt so many others—China has sowed chaos in the United States and globally.  This is consistent with Xi Jinping’s goal of achieving global domination.[2]

Americans are split between those who has been vaccinated fully, and anticipate periodic “boosters” in the future like our yearly flu shots; and “anti-vaxxers,” many of whom are intelligent, well-educated and believe “devoutly” that we will not know for years (if not decades) what the long-term effects of the vaccines really are.  After all, more than 100 years have passed since the Spanish flu ended; and an estimated 50-100 million died from it, with the exact number still being undetermined.[3]

Meanwhile, Xi and his lapdog—Russia’s killer Vladimir Putin—continue to oppress their own people; threaten war against Taiwan and Ukraine, respectively; and sow the seeds of global chaos.  They have willing accomplices or handmaidens in America’s Left, who see this as an opportunity to further their own radical beliefs and agendas, and subjugate the masses.

A few examples will suffice.  They are changing the voting rules; opening our borders wide to illegal aliens (including human traffickers and other criminals), and rewarding them with financial and other benefits; making us dependent on oil from the volatile Middle East again; weakening our global alliances after our humiliating defeat in Afghanistan, where Americans were killed while others are still left behind; and blessing crimes that were prosecuted until recently.[4]

Lots of us began as Democrats but abandoned that political party years ago, when it veered so far to the Left that it became unrecognizable.  Today, it’s as if the bowels of Hell have opened wide and unleashed a host of devils on our great nation, which are determined to destroy or “cancel” everything that we have held dear and sacred.  To say that they are Godless is to be kind and forgiving, with respect to what they really are.  They are the Devil incarnate; that much is crystal clear.

For example, anyone who doubts this—or is offended by such an assertion—needs to read Barack Obama’s “Dreams from My Father.”[5] It is all there, in his own words: unbridled racism, and a hatred of America.  For those who scoff at this, one needs to realize that he grew up in Hawaii and Indonesia, and never lived on the American mainland until he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles.

His mother lived in Indonesia, and essentially raised her “second family” without him; and he only spent one month of his lifetime with his father, who visited Hawaii from Kenya.  His unbridled anger toward America has sowed racial divisions between blacks and whites; the lawlessness that is almost nonstop and an epidemic; and hatreds that have been festering, like a wound that never heals.[6]  All of this inures to the benefit of Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin and our other enemies, who are bent on America’s destruction.

Conspiracy theorists aside, Barack Obama, Brain Dead Joe Biden[7], Willie Brown’s ho Kamala Harris[8], Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and their fellow travelers of America’s Left are fulfilling the goals of Xi Jinping and China’s other rulers.  They are tearing apart the very fabric of our great nation.  Unless they are stopped in their tracks—for example, in our congressional elections later this year—the United States’ future may be imperiled.[9]

January 6, 2021, In Perspective

7 01 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

The violence that occurred on January 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.—where I spent so many years—never should have happened, period.  Before working there, I served as an Army officer in The Pentagon, where I was assigned to the Defense Intelligence Agency when it was headquartered there.[2]

While memories fade with the passage of time, many of us were glued to our TVs on the morning of September 11, 2001—or the infamous “9/11″—when our great nation was attacked by thugs from abroad.  They had hijacked our own airliners, which slammed into the Twin Towers in New York City, The Pentagon, and another that was brought down by courageous passengers in a Shanksville, Pennsylvania field.  The latter flight might have targeted our White House or Capitol.[3]

I was in California that day, and had gotten up early to watch Laura Bush testify at a hearing on Capitol Hill, when I saw the horrors unfold. Before 9/11, I had eaten dinner at the “Windows on the World” restaurant, atop one of the World Trade Center’s towers that were destroyed by the terrorists.[4]

Because of my work, I knew the security at The Pentagon and at our Capitol well, and had to pass security checks when I entered either building.  What happened at the Capitol on January 6th of last year is mind-boggling for me, especially in light of the fact that the FBI and other government agencies were apparently tipped off ahead of time about possible violence at the Capitol, yet they failed to respond.

Having tried to destroy Donald Trump from the moment his quest for the presidency began—in bogus impeachment attempts, and other concerted efforts masterminded by Barack Obama and his Democrats[5]—it is not surprising that they would try to pin the Capitol attacks on him too.  It is a convenient ruse to divert attention from the colossal failures of the Biden-Harris administration, which may result in the Democrats’ loss of the House in our elections later this year.[6]

I began as a Democrat in a devoutly-Republican family, but became an Independent when I left the Senate.  I had seen too much “dirt” on Capitol Hill[7], and I have been an Independent ever since.  Indeed, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.  I have never changed that conclusion.[8]

Today, the Democrats and their Leftist cohorts in the media are trying to blame last year’s Capitol attacks on Trump and the Republicans, in a pathetic effort to salvage their likely-failing election prospects.  Some Republican “RINOs” are playing along with this ruse.  One is the “architect” of the George W. Bush presidency, Karl Rove, who was there when Bush invaded Afghanistan, and then embarked on the tragic Iraq War—in which 5,000 Americans died and many more were maimed, and trillions of dollars were wasted, for nothing.[9]

Our great nation is divided because of the Coronavirus pandemic and other factors[10]; and we need to heal, not engage in more divisiveness . . . and yes, lawlessness.  To incarcerate those who were there a year ago, without trials or other constitutionally-guaranteed rights, is repugnant unto itself.  This is especially true when the thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels of “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups—who burned our cities, killed or hurt innocent Americans including our police, and destroyed black and other businesses—have never been brought to justice.[11]

2021 Annus Horribilis

30 12 2021

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1][2]

Clearly, the Coronavirus and its mutations are not following the trajectory of the Spanish flu, which killed an estimated 50-100 million globally, and came and went within 18 months.[3]  As 2021 comes to a close, the United States and other countries are shutting down again, with even worse predicted in the future.[4]  Time-honored events such as American college football’s bowl games are being canceled, because of the virus.[5]

Americans do not trust their government with respect to information about the virus.  And our already-stressed healthcare system may be overwhelmed, as more Americans seek critical help for Coronavirus-related medical needs.  Medical professionals have not recovered fully from the effects of the first rounds of the Coronavirus pandemic; and many have taken early retirements or just quit because of the stress.  Also, Americans with non-Coronavirus medical needs are being turned away again.[6]

China and Russia may be on the verge of striking at Taiwan and Ukraine, respectively; and Brain Dead Joe Biden and his Vice President, Willie Brown’s former ho Kamala Harris, seem more out of touch than ever.  Lots of Americans have lost faith in our great nation, which is not limited to supporters of former President Donald Trump.  They include vast numbers of Independents, who constitute an estimated 41 percent of the American electorate.[7]  Many have become devout “anti-vaxxers,” who do not believe the directives issued by our federal government, state governments or local governments.  As the days pass, more evidence is mounting that governments at all levels are incompetent, and incapable of addressing the problems created by the Coronavirus pandemic and its mutations.

My last article here—entitled “Have Woke Anti-Americanism And China Risen To Take The Place Of The Soviet Union, Which Replaced The Nazis’ Third Reich?”—concluded with rays of hope and optimism.  It referenced another article on the subject by Conrad Black, a Canadian-born British former newspaper publisher and writer.[8]  I have not changed my belief that Black may be correct, and there are reasons for long-term optimism.  However, in the interim, Americans may go through even more pain and suffering, before there is a light at the proverbial “end of the tunnel.”  Indeed, I concluded:

As Americans seem mired down with the reemergence of Coronavirus lockdowns and fears, and the ineptitude—if not downright dishonesty—of the Biden-Harris administration as it implodes, they need to heed what Conrad Black has written above.  A powerful backlash is building against woke anti-Americanism, which will likely overwhelm it and consign it to the dustbin of history.[9]

This and other factors may temper our enemies’ actions against us.

Have Woke Anti-Americanism And China Risen To Take The Place Of The Soviet Union, Which Replaced The Nazis’ Third Reich?

20 12 2021

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Conrad Black—a Canadian-born British former newspaper publisher and writer—has written an article entitled “Powerful Backlash Building Against Woke Anti-Americanism,” which is worth reading and heeding:

December 26 will mark the 30th anniversary of the disintegration of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and with it, the collapse of international communism. Political scientist Francis Fukuyama spoke for many when he said that we were “at the end of history” and that there would be no political evolution beyond what appeared to be the total triumph of liberal democracy.

This can clearly be seen now as a hopeful view inflated by triumphalism. China has risen to take the place of the Soviet Union, which itself replaced the Nazi German Third Reich as the principal rival to western democracy. One could easily imagine, looking at the feeble and inadequate regime now in office in Washington and imagine that the West, haltingly led by the United States and infested by appeasers and defeatists, was once again under severe challenge by a transoceanic, totalitarian power.

Showing unsuspected powers of improvisation, the international left that was completely defeated in the Cold War vanished into the undergrowth, but almost spontaneously returned as champions of environmentalism. If capitalism could not be defeated by a competitive economic system, Marxism, it shortly found itself in mortal combat with the old left now in alliance with the authentic, if often tedious, conservationists in a holy assault on capitalism as an environmental threat to the future of the planet itself.

We appear to be in a more dangerous confrontation with China and other countries conniving with it — especially Russia, Iran and North Korea — than we really are. China is aggressively posturing and claiming international waters as its own and threatening to accelerate reunification with Taiwan. Russia, having lost nearly half its population in the fall of the Soviet Union, is openly threatening to annex at least the predominantly Russian parts of Ukraine.

The enfeeblement of the American administration invites the inference that America is in irreversible decline. In fact, while China has enjoyed astonishing success as a development story, bootstrapping itself up from the socioeconomic depths, its institutions are untrustworthy, its government still maintains a high degree of control over the economy and the country’s largest businesses, and it is run by an odious and corrupt dictatorship. It is a country with few natural resources and an aging population due to its long-standing previous one-child policy.

All this obscures the fact that the Cold War and the dissolution of the U.S.S.R. were the greatest and most bloodless strategic victories in the history of the world. The greatest consequence of them is the triumph of capitalism in the world, in particular in China and Russia. It is the best system because it is the only one that is aligned with the almost universal human ambition to have more.

Because it incentivizes competition, it inevitably leads to an overheated and potentially self-destructive economic frenzy, but since the Second World War, capitalism has demonstrated its ability to lift countries out of poverty and make advanced economies more prosperous, including formerly communist China, formerly fascist Spain, almost all of central and western Europe, South Korea, Israel, Chile, Singapore and much of Latin America. India is making unprecedented progress.

This is the triumph of capitalism: the peace dividend at the end of the Cold War and the demonstration of the absolute superiority of the American over the Soviet system as the Americans outdistanced the Soviet Union militarily while spending far less on military matters. The triumph of capitalism was earned, even if pure capitalism is not for everybody.

The waffling generated by a sharp change in prevailing currents of public policy in the United States should not be mistaken for a reversal in the fortunes of capitalism, whose benefits are sweeping over almost all the world.

The United States is in the midst of a complicated process of renovation. Six years ago, Donald Trump was practically the only prominent American who saw how disillusioned people were over being mired in fruitless Middle Eastern wars, seeing the steady exportation of American jobs to cheap labour markets and the importation of the resulting unemployment, and the fact that those in the middle class had seen virtually no increase in the purchasing power of their incomes for decades.

Mr. Trump led an assault on the complacent bipartisan governing political class. Despite being harassed by false allegations of colluding with Russia to rig the 2016 election and a spurious impeachment trial over an unexceptionable conversation with the president of Ukraine, he effectively eliminated unemployment, increased domestic oil production while reducing foreign imports and cracked down on illegal immigration.

Only the coronavirus gave the Democrats the opportunity they needed to terrorize the population and deprive Trump of what appeared to be his probable re-election.

The Biden administration has made an almost complete shambles of every policy area: immigration, inflation, Covid, crime, and the unprecedented and shameful debacle in Afghanistan. It is increasingly obvious that either Mr. Trump or a candidate supported by him and endorsing most of his policies will be elected in 2024, and the renovation of America will resume.

There will be a new and more purposeful political elite and a powerful backlash against woke anti-Americanism in the schools and universities, the self-serving hypocrisy of limousine liberals on Wall Street and in Silicon Valley, and the narcissistic hypocrisy of Hollywood and Big Sport. In these circumstances, the status of the United States as the world’s most important and influential country will be re-established.

China is fundamentally not remotely as strong a country as the United States. Its institutions are not credible and are universally mistrusted; it has the political instability of dictatorships where succession is always uncertain. Russia has a smaller GDP than Canada and is desperately trying to regain shards of its former empire after the sudden secession of nearly half the Soviet population.

The West can accommodate Russian ambitions up to a point. The key is to avoid driving a truncated and demoralized Russia into the arms of China and effectively giving the Chinese the right to develop the vast territory of Russian Siberia. As long as this can be avoided, the resumption of American national renovation will re-establish the unambiguous superiority of American influence in the world, and particularly its economic model. Capitalism is imperfect, but it is invincible, as was demonstrated 30 years ago.[2]

Are we as Americans descending into Hitler-esque times, when our thoughts, words and actions are constantly monitored?  Have George Orwell’s predictions in his prescient “Animal Farm” come true, where all of the animals were equal until the Pigs reigned supreme and subjugated the other animals?[3]

Those who live in China today are subjected to such regimens, and seem used to them.  After all, Hong Kong’s fledgling democracy has been snuffed out already; and more than 1 million ethnic minorities including the Uyghurs are enslaved in “reeducation” camps that are not dissimilar to the Nazi death camps of the past.

One must never forget that China launched the deadly Coronavirus pandemic—inadvertently or as a bioweapon—which has killed or hurt millions globally, with even more deaths to come.  Yet, China has not paid one penny in reparations.[4] And arguably, America’s Left and its “fellow travelers” are doing the bidding and handiwork of China today.

The American and global eco-Nazis ignore the facts that (1) the planet has undergone warming and cooling periods for millions of years, which will continue after all of us are long gone; and (2) while pollution is a legitimate concern, China and India are the biggest polluters in the world, by far.  Yet, China pays lip service to the issue.

As Americans seem mired down with the reemergence of Coronavirus lockdowns and fears, and the ineptitude—if not downright dishonesty—of the Biden-Harris administration as it implodes, they need to heed what Conrad Black has written above.  A powerful backlash is building against woke anti-Americanism, which will likely overwhelm it and consign it to the dustbin of history.

A Coward’s Approach To Russia’s Pygmy Putin?

7 12 2021

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Russia’s killer Vladimir Putin is an “old school” thug and despot, whose reign of terror will come to an end when he is dead and buried, and Russia implodes like the Soviet Union did.  He rose up through the ranks of KGB in East Germany—or the DDR, as it was known before the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of Erich Honecker’s government, which was one of the most repressive regimes in the Soviet Union’s orbit, or the Evil Empire.  As I have written previously:

Russia’s dictator-for-life Vladimir Putin is every bit as sinister and evil as Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler and Mao Tse-tung.  He is a ruthless killer—of his own people and others, and of the human spirit.  Recently, he warned against despotism and chaos in Russia, which is equivalent to Hitler warning against the death camps, or Stalin and Mao warning against the ravages of communism.  Putin is the face of America’s enemies today, personified, as well as the enemy of free peoples everywhere. He is responsible for the dismantling of Russia’s incipient democracy.  Despots like him are destroyed ultimately.  However, in the interim, the death and destruction they bring about are savage, barbaric and tragic.  Like a Mob boss, Putin is apt to die a cruel and horrible death, mirroring the cruelty that he and his ex-KGB lackeys have brought to so many in Russia and elsewhere.

. . .

Russia spans nine time zones, and consists of many diverse ethnic and religious groups and cultures.

After Putin’s demise, Russia may be “dismembered,” with China taking part (e.g., Siberia) and the rest becoming independent states like the former Yugoslavia.[2]

As history has shown repeatedly, the appeasement of thugs and dictators will only fuel their ravenous appetites, which in the case of Putin are essentially insatiable.  Yet, Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—has written an article entitled “Putin to Biden: Finlandize Ukraine, or We Will”:

Either the U.S. and NATO provide us with “legal guarantees” that Ukraine will never join NATO or become a base for weapons that can threaten Russia — or we will go in and guarantee it ourselves.

This is the message Russian President Vladimir Putin is sending, backed by the 100,000 troops Russia has amassed on Ukraine’s borders.

At the Kremlin last week, Putin drew his red line:

“The threat on our western borders is … rising, as we have said multiple times. … In our dialogue with the United States and its allies, we will insist on developing concrete agreements prohibiting any further eastward expansion of NATO and the placement there of weapons systems in the immediate vicinity of Russian territory.”

That comes close to an ultimatum. And NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg backhanded the President of Russia for issuing it:

“It’s only Ukraine and 30 NATO allies that decide when Ukraine is ready to join NATO. … Russia has no veto, Russia has no say, and Russia has no right to establish a sphere of influence trying to control their neighbors.”

Yet, great powers have always established spheres of influence. Chinese President Xi Jinping claims virtually the entire South China Sea that is bordered by half a dozen nations. For 200 years, the United States has declared a Monroe Doctrine that puts our hemisphere off-limits to new colonizations.

Moreover, Putin wants to speak to the real decider of the question as to whether Ukraine joins NATO or receives weapons that can threaten Russia. And the decider is not Jens Stoltenberg but President Joe Biden.

In the missile crisis of 60 years ago, the U.S., with its “quarantine” of Cuba and strategic and tactical superiority in the Caribbean, forced Nikita Khrushchev to pull his intermediate-range ballistic missiles, which could reach Washington, off of Fidel Castro’s island.

If it did not do so, Moscow was led to understand, we would use our air and naval supremacy to destroy his missiles and send in the Marines to finish the job.

Accepting a counteroffer for the U.S. withdrawal of Jupiter missiles from Turkey, Khrushchev complied with President John F. Kennedy’s demand. Russia’s missiles came out. And Kennedy was seen as having won a Cold War victory.

Now it is we who are being told to comply with Russia’s demands in Ukraine, or Russia will go in to Ukraine and neutralize the threat itself.

The history?

When the Warsaw Pact collapsed and the USSR came apart three decades ago, Russia withdrew all of its military forces from Central and Eastern Europe. Moscow believed it had an agreed-upon understanding with the Americans.

Under the deal, the two Germanys would be reunited. Russian troops would be removed from East Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania. And there would be no NATO expansion into Eastern Europe.

If America made that commitment, it was a promise broken. For, within 20 years, NATO had brought every Warsaw Pact nation into the alliance along with the former Soviet republics of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

Neocons and Republican hawks such as the late John McCain sought to bring Ukraine and two other ex-Soviet republics, Georgia and Moldova, into NATO.

Putin, who served in the KGB in the late Soviet era and calls the breakup of the USSR the “greatest geopolitical catastrophe” of the 20th century, is now saying: Enough is enough.

Translation: “Thus far and no further! Ukraine is not going to be a member of NATO or a military ally and partner of the United States, nor a base for weapons that can strike Russia in minutes. For us, that crosses a red line. And if NATO proceeds with arming Ukraine for conflict with Russia, we reserve the right to act first. Finlandize Ukraine, or we will!”

The problem for Biden?

In Ukraine and in Georgia, as we saw in the 2008 war, Russia has the tactical and strategic superiority we had in 1962 in Cuba. Moreover, while Ukraine is vital to Russia, it has never been vital to us.

When President Franklin D. Roosevelt recognized Joseph Stalin’s USSR in 1933, Moscow was engaged in the forced collectivization of the farms of Ukraine, which had caused a famine and the deaths of millions. We Americans did nothing to stop it.

During the Cold War, America never insisted on the independence of Ukraine. Though we celebrated when the Baltic states and Ukraine broke free of Moscow, we never regarded their independence as vital interests for which America should be willing to go to war.

A U.S. war with Russia over Ukraine would be a disaster for all three nations. Nor could the U.S. indefinitely guarantee the independence of a country 5,000 miles away that shares not only a lengthy border with Mother Russia but also a history, language, religion, ethnicity and culture.

Forced to choose between accepting Russia’s demand that NATO stay out of Ukraine and Russia going in, the U.S. is not going to war.

Biden should tell Putin: The U.S. will not be issuing any NATO war guarantees to fight for Ukraine.[3]

Clearly, what Buchanan is proposing is appeasement—there is no other way to describe it—which will not only fuel Putin’s appetite, but that of China’s Xi Jinping.  Both are on the cusp of acting globally to fill the vacuum created by Brain Dead Joe Biden’s retreat from Afghanistan, and our humiliating defeat globally.[4][5]

Censorship At DIA, No Wonder We Lost Afghanistan

27 08 2021

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

I spent two years working in the Pentagon, where I served as an Army officer assigned to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).  When I finished my service there—as a Captain—I received the distinguished Joint Service Commendation Medal, before going to work in the U.S. Senate.[2]

Like many organizations, DIA has an alumni group, which ostensibly posts comments about timely issues.  None is more important today than the collapse of our great nation’s presence in Afghanistan, and the loss of American, allied and Afghan lives.  It is front and center globally.  Yet, a former DIA employee, James Beirne—who presumably was a civilian when he worked there—has decided to ban my comments, which constitutes gross and unconscionable censorship.  Americans have fought and died for our freedoms; and they are dying in Afghanistan today, to preserve them.[3]

No wonder Afghanistan constitutes a colossal defeat for the United States, which may surpass the fall of Saigon and Vietnam, and the Bay of Pigs fiasco, in terms of its national gravity.  Presumably Beirne is part of the reckless “cancel culture,” which has no place in America today.  He is a stain on the DIA where I worked before him, with outstanding co-workers who contributed greatly to our national security.

Beirne should resign in disgrace.  Our nation is not well served by the likes of him.  Indeed, the association’s motto is “Still Serving in Defense of the Nation.”  Clearly, Beirne is not doing this, especially in crucial times like this when China’s Xi Jinping and Russia’s Vladimir Putin—and our other adversaries globally—are watching every move that we make, and gauging their responses accordingly.[4] 

America does not need traitors at this critical juncture in our history.

The Biden-Harris Presidency Has Ended

26 08 2021

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Yes, it hasn’t come to an end officially, yet.  But for all intents and purposes, it is done.  Lyndon Johnson’s presidency was finished after the fall of Saigon and Vietnam.  He was hated, and could not run for reelection.[2]

The tragedy of epic proportions that is emerging in Afghanistan and the fall of its capital Kabul, and America’s humiliation at the hands of the Taliban, has trumpeted the end of the Biden-Harris presidency to the world—to friends and foes alike.[3]

Is Joe Biden “Brain Dead”?  All indications are that this is true.[4]  But in a sense, it is irrelevant.  The world has watched the only true superpower disgraced like perhaps never before.[5]  And the ripple effects will spread far and wide.[6]

The rise of Coronavirus hospitalizations in the United States adds an exclamation point to this.[7]  Needless to say, China’s Xi Jinping and Russia’s Vladimir Putin are watching these developments closely.  As “chess masters,” they will be calibrating their moves accordingly; and they are observing America mired down, like Gulliver and the Lilliputians.[8]

If Coronavirus Mutations Come Roaring Back, Will Americans Listen—Much Less Survive?

23 06 2021

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Americans are angry.  Brits are angry.  Others around the world are angry that the deadly Coronavirus pandemic has disrupted their lives and killed their loved ones and friends, and hurt so many others physically, psychologically and economically.[2]

By nature, Americans are not a patient people, and they rebel when rules are shoved down their throats, much less rules that they deem unfair and unjust.  They take umbrage at authority, especially when they deem it to be wielded unjustly.

For example, the G7 just concluded its meetings at the Tregenna Castle Resort in Cornwall on the west coast of Britain.[3]  There was no social distancing or the wearing of masks by the leaders of the nations that were represented.  Yet, the “Delta variant” or mutation of the Coronavirus is emerging, which may kill or hurt even more globally.

Lots of Americans have been vaccinated.  Now they are being told that such vaccinations may not be enough to shield them from the mutations, and that more vaccinations and lockdowns and rules may be required.  Still others refused be be vaccinated from Day One, and they are effectively saying: “I told you so.”

Americans are traveling again with a vengeance, and releasing pent-up frustrations and anger.  What will happen if the “Delta variant” or some other mutation bites, and bites big time?  Like the ancient Fable about “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” will Americans even listen?[4]  And this is true regardless of one’s color, ethnicity, religion or political affiliation.

China unleashed the Coronavirus, either inadvertently or as a bioweapon; and since then, it has spread worldwide with devastating effects, which have not run their course.  China’s Communist rulers seek global domination by the end of this decade; and the destruction of the United States—and its political, social and economic fabric—is part of their strategy.[5]

Lastly, missing from Xi Jinping’s and Mao Tse-tung’s China and Vladimir Putin’s Russia and Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union and so many other totalitarian regimes is a belief and trust in God.  The forces of evil in the world today share that one common thread—which is the polar opposite of what undergirds and has defined the United States and its people.[6]

Lots Of Americans Are Very Angry

4 06 2020

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

They see black thugs, slugs and hoods igniting a firestorm of violence in cities and small towns across our great nation.  They see members of law enforcement being injured and, in some cases, killed trying to do their jobs of defending law and order.[2]  They see a repeat of every senseless riot in America since Watts erupted in Los Angeles during the summer of 1965.

They see black-on-black crimes being trivialized if not ignored completely, even though elderly blacks have been terrified of the young thugs (or their predecessors) for decades.  This is especially true of elderly black women who have been victimized, instead of being treated with the love and respect that they have earned and so richly deserve.[3]  Many have struggled to keep their families together, after their spouses or partners left.  Their “reward” has been a life of fear, when they should be enjoying their “golden years.”

They see the Lincoln Memorial in our nation’s capital being defaced when Abraham Lincoln and his generals, Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman, defeated the South and freed the slaves and saved the nation.[4]  They see the Democratic Party demagoguing these issues, even though it is the “father” of slavery, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and segregation. Indeed, former Democratic President Lyndon Johnson’s singular accomplishment in office—other than escalating John F. Kennedy’s Vietnam War[5]—was his “Great Society” welfare program. It broke up or crippled black families, and made them dependent on the Federal Government’s largesse, effectively enslaving them economically to this day.[6]

Other Americans are angry because they see a continuation of racial injustices. Many realize that America’s blacks have been and continue to be at the bottom of our economic totem pole. Even though they constitute less than 13 percent of America’s population[7], while Hispanic and Latino Americans number more than 18 percent[8], many non-black Americans empathize with their plight because of the color of their skin. “White Americans” constitute more than 75 percent of the U.S. population, including “White Hispanics.”[9]

However one slices and dices it, black Americans stand out—and are alone.  Factor in the lack of education and job skills for the thugs, and there is a recipe for disaster, discrimination and pent-up anger, just waiting to be released and unleashed.  Then throw in the effects of lockdowns and worries about the Coronavirus, and the personal dislike of President Trump by America’s Left, and we have the riots.  “Social distancing” be damned, these people want to riot and they are determined to do so.

They must be put down like rabid animals, just like the South was put down viciously, never to rise again.  Indeed, many educated blacks reject the rioters’ tactics and actions.  Among other reasons, often left unsaid, is that the thugs increase discrimination, which no amount of rioting or even rational thinking can avert.  Human beings have discriminated since the beginning of time; and this type of discrimination never seems to go away, and perhaps it never will. 

Lastly, it is important to share the following statement by Thomas D. Klingenstein and Ryan P. Williams—Chairman and President, respectively—of the Claremont Institute in California:

The pretext for this entire nationwide riot is that America is a racist country.  That is not true.  America is not a racist country.  America is a country that has strived, imperfectly but passionately, to live up to its founding promise that all men are created equal.  There is not—and will never be—a greater barrier to racism, or to tyranny in any form, than this American idea.  

The reckless charge that American law enforcement is “systemically racist” is also not true.  As with any large organization of men wielding power, some will abuse that power.  But police do not systematically target innocents—either by race or any other criteria.  Any fair-minded review of the available data demonstrates that.   

Why is it that so many of our citizens believe that America is racist to its core?  Because this lie has been preached by our universities and media like the Gospel for a generation.  From there it has traveled throughout society, particularly among the elite.  Even most leaders on the Right are unwilling to refute this destructive untruth.  In failing to do so, they promote the falsehood, the riots that it has engendered, and ultimately America’s destruction.  This is to say, the riots are the handiwork of the elite.  A country that has been taught it is ignoble will not defend itself against its enemies, domestic or foreign.  

As we see written in flames in these riots and hear in all the commentary on them, the great divide in America is between those who believe that America is evil and needs to be destroyed, and those who believe that America is good and needs to be preserved.  A version of that question is what the 2016 elections were about, and what the elections in 2020 will be about.  The nation has a party devoted to transforming the American way of life; it needs a party devoted to preserving the American way of life.

America must have a full accounting of how the riots happened, who made them happen, and who let them happen.  Those in power must be held to account.  Most fundamentally, the lies that have been the core curriculum of American education must be replaced with the truth.  The only way America can survive is as a united country dedicated to living out the true meaning of its creed.  The elite want to rob us of that future.  The rest of us should pledge our lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to stopping them.[10]

Truer words were never spoken, or written.  We are blessed with a great and gallant nation, unsurpassed anywhere in the world, which is why it is the target of so many.  They must be put down and defeated.  Otherwise, the heroic efforts of so many—not the least of them being Abraham Lincoln—will have been in vain.

History Repeats Itself: Thugs Riot In America

2 06 2020

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Much is being made by America’s Left about how George Floyd died, and whether undue police brutality was involved.  There are competing claims in terms of the official autopsy report, and another version commissioned by his family.[2]  All of that is well and good; and the issues need to be put to rest, if that is possible.

The overriding issues, however, are the riots that followed.  They were and are lawless, criminal acts; and they are consistent with earlier acts of mob violence that began in my lifetime with the Watts Riots in Los Angeles.[3]  Put succinctly, the thugs and miscreants who have rioted need to be put down like a pack of rabid animals.  They harken back to the barbarian Mongol hordes that swept across Asia, bringing death, destruction and anarchy with them.[4]

The American thugs have defaced the Lincoln Memorial and other monuments, which underscores the fact that they are ignorant and have no sense of history—and they do not care.  Abraham Lincoln ended slavery and saved the Union.  The ancestors of today’s Democrats and other Leftists brought slavery to America, and perpetuated it with the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and segregation.  Thus, how ignorant these thugs and yes, “animals” are today.

The question facing Americans now and in the future is whether they want to be ruled by rogue gangs of savages—or their Leftist, Democratic Party surrogates—much less in the midst of the deadly Coronavirus?[5]  Will the thugs catch the virus?  After all, it has been reported that 4,000 of them are in jails, which are incubators for the virus.  Clearly they have not been “social distancing” during their anarchy; and presumably they will not be doing so in the jails and prisons of our land.

From a macro view, how China’s brutal Xi Jinping[6] and Russia’s equally brutal dictator-for-life Vladimir Putin[7] must be salivating.  Having unleashed the Coronavirus as a bioweapon or inadvertently[8], Xi is moving against Hong Kong now; and Taiwan and other parts of Asia may be next.  Yet, in all likelihood, the American thugs know nothing about these issues, or their global effects and impact on millions of lives, nor is it likely they would care one iota if they knew.  Their rioting must be stopped, period.[9]

The determination of death will be a central issue in the arresting officer’s trial for murder; and any variances from the initial official report may be subject to scrutiny by the officer’s legal team, and rightly so.  Indeed, there are reasons to believe that the official conclusions were “softened” for political reasons.  If so, it is a travesty.

Later, it was the Rodney King Riots, where the mistreatment of one man was a spark that ignited a fire that went nationwide, much as is true of the riots now.  Yet, ongoing black-on-black crimes are ignored, which in many cases involve young thugs who target elderly blacks, and especially elderly black women who are terrified.
