How Is This Crazy S*** Supposed to Work?

National lockdown to fight coronavirus: What it means - India News

By now, I hope, most people have noticed that the states with the most onerous restrictions imposed on their people are all Democrat states, with Democrat governors making like Mussolini. And surely you’ve noticed that whenever a state draws near the date set by the governor for the end of the lockdown, they move it back another several weeks.

You can walk on wet sand, but not on dry sand. Don’t step outside without a mask on. Don’t even think about buying seeds for your garden. And so on. One “mandate” after another. We used to have laws. Now we have mandates.

Democrats are enjoying this like it was a beer party in heaven. Somehow burdening the American people with innumerable restrictions, some of which don’t make any kind of sense at all, is supposed to endear them to the voters, turn them against President Trump, and sweep their warmed-over socialist rag-pile party back into power in November. Like, all this stuff that Democrats are doing to us–that’s all Trump’s fault.

What? How?

Shut up, they explained.

The Democrats abuse us and reckon we’ll blame it all on Trump. I don’t understand that thinking. It only works if our Free & Independent Nooze media go whole-hog Democrat and the people–maybe God has driven them mad–believe them. The party and the noozies have to work closely together on this… as they’ve been doing all along.

Is America truly stupid enough to fall for this?

God forbid.


Tinpot Tyrants’ Addiction to Power

Illinois Governor JB Pritzker to extend stay at home order through ...

“All children under sixteen are now over sixteen…”

One by one, Democrat governors are losing lawsuits filed against their overzealous “lockdown” orders. Important reminder: “Lockdown” used to mean a tactic used by jailers to control their prisoners. They’ve lost every one of these court cases so far, but it hasn’t blunted their appetite for dictatorial rule.

So yesterday the Democrat governor of Illinois decreed an “emergency rule” that would make it a criminal offense (Class A misdemeanor) to disobey him by re-opening your business (https://illinoisfamily.org/politics/governor-pritzker-wants-to-criminalize-lock-down-opposition/). He also wants to extend his “emergency authority” to 150 days, up from 30.

He needs an emergency 48 hours in the pillory, or at least a public ducking.

Have you noticed that every single one of these Mussolini wannabes is a Democrat? That’s not an accident.

It would be nice to believe these governors are simply doing the best they can under very trying circumstances.

But that’s a thing I can’t believe.

 


‘A Degrading Form of Government’ (2013)

See the source image

As the liberal death cult tries to stir up impeachment frenzy in America, and uses children on a global stage to stampede adults into accepting a global government, let’s pause and reflect on what kind of government sinful, fallen man usually winds up with.

https://leeduigon.com/2013/08/21/a-degrading-form-of-government/

This is the perversity of our sin nature: wherever there is liberty, you’ll find people clamoring for a king. Wherever there is dignity, you’ll find them stretched out on the ground kissing the earth the tyrant walks on.

It’s a dynamic of history, it never changes. There’s always someone, somewhere, or a group of fat-heads, somewhere, who wants to rule the whole shebang.

The globalists are pushing very, very hard for that today!

And Donald Trump stands in their way, so Donald Trump must go.

O Lord our God! Tread down your enemies, who hate your people for your sake.


‘The Hatchery of Stalinism’ (2014)

See the source image

Since I wrote this little essay, we’ve had five years to fix this problem; and we haven’t so much as lifted a finger to do it.

https://leeduigon.com/2014/02/26/the-hatchery-of-stalinism/

Our, ahem, colleges and universities are being used against us, purposely used to alienate young people from their country, to turn them into willing, brainless tools for would-be tyrants. And we let them do it.

Freedom is not natural to fallen man. It is rarely achieved and only maintained with difficulty.

Defund the colleges–before they put freedom out of business.


China’s ‘Social Credit’ System: Coming to America?

See the source image

Is your score high enough to allow you to eat at  decent restaurant?

How would you like to be punished for something without even knowing what it was, without a trial, without a chance to defend yourself, without even a chance to say anything about it? And because the punishment is not administered by the legal system, there’s no way to appeal it, no way to get it lifted.

Welcome to Red China’s “social credit” system. There, Big Tech closely monitors everything that everybody says and does and helps the government “rate” citizens according to their “trustworthiness”… as defined by the government. You run up points for doing things the government likes for you to do; and if your score is too low, you can’t shop at the nicer stores, can’t sent your kids to a nice school, can’t hold a good job, can’t travel on a plane, can’t ride the choo-choo train.

Here, Big Tech’s mouth is watering as they dream up ways to impose a similar system on the increasingly less “free” world (https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/08/26/fast-company-silicon-valley-is-building-a-communist-style-social-credit-system/).

Some of the big corporations–banks, insurance companies, Facebook, Uber, and Lyft, and even Amazon–are already rating their customers, and some are banning people for having “wrong” opinions. (Note: I got banned by Facebook yesterday.) Say the wrong thing on the social media, and maybe next time you need a ride from Uber, the algorithm will say you can’t have one.

This is a liberal’s dream come true. Why go to all the trouble of passing a law against Climbit Change Denial, and maybe have a judge just strike it down, when Big Tech is ready, willing, and able to do your dirty work for you? And your victim won’t be able to go to court and get his punishment lifted. You don’t even have to tell him why he’s being punished.

Remember a book called Beyond Freedom and Dignity by B.F. Skinner, vintage 1971? Freedom and dignity, argued the father of behavior modification theory, are outdated and “unscientific,” obstacles to a utopia designed by Scientists and the kind of government that’ll kill you as soon as look at you.

“Social credit” is behavior mod for the entire country, administered by private entities without the consent of the governed–but certainly with a sly wink from the Democrats.

Please! Do not, under any circumstances, vote for any Democrat anywhere! Next year is our chance to put them out of business… before they put our country out of business.

 


‘Your Tax $$ at Work: the Columbia U. School of Climate Change Hysteria’ (2014)

See the source image

This is what’ll happen if you don’t give the government fantastic new powers to control your lives!

Far Left Crazy will never drop the ball on “Climate Change.” It’s their ticket to ride, the blanket excuse for extending the strangling grasp of government in every direction. And the colleges and universities help them do it. Like so:

https://leeduigon.com/2014/06/25/your-tax-at-work-the-columbia-u-school-of-climate-change-hysteria/

Yeah–when you’ve got no facts, got no logic, there’s always hysteria.

I really hate this Save The Planet preaching from the same shysters who are busy paving over every square inch of it. You should see what liberals have done to New Jersey.

“Educators” and tyrants–perfect together.


My Newswithviews Column, March 28 (‘Freedom–An Endangered Species’)

See the source image

It’s so much more scientific to control people rather than letting them run free. C’mon–free-range human beings? Can’t be allowed!

https://newswithviews.com/freedom-an-endangered-species/

For sure, Britain is farther down this road than we are. But Democrats drool with envy when they see some of the speech-restricting laws that Britain’s got. Oh! Wouldn’t it be just so gratifying, to force people to say things they know are total lies, and throw them into prison if they won’t!

Why do police enforce those laws? Beats me. You’d think they’d be ashamed.


Is Freedom Our Natural State?

See the source image

In a word, no. In a fallen world populated by sinners, where you can win applause by rejecting God, freedom is a plant very easily shriveled.

The Romans frittered away their republic and wound up with an emperor.

The English beheaded King Charles and wound up with a Parliament that assigns sovereign power to itself and ignores the result of a supposedly binding referendum because it didn’t like the way the people voted.

The French beheaded their king and wound up with first a lot of little creeps who were beheading everybody, and then Napoleon.

The Chinese tossed out their emperor and wound up with warlords, Mao, and the mob of tyrants who succeeded him.

In the 20th century, tyranny bloomed like kudzu. It would take up too much space just to list the perpetrators. there were so many tyrants in that century, you could have had them in a boxed set of bubble-gum cards.

Our own country’s founders tried their level best to avoid these errors and create for us a republic ruled not by tyrants, but by laws that were the same for all. A terrible civil war rid us of the curse of slavery. But as the Bible teaches us, if we won’t serve the true God, the only author of our liberties, we will surely wind up serving false ones.

All over the world today, freedom is under attack. Even here, we have elitists, we have Democrats, who believe in, and try their damnedest to create, a government colossus to rule over virtually everything–for our own good, of course, and with themselves doing the ruling. And because our education establishment is fully committed to that course, it trains young Americans to be ignorant of civics, ignorant of history, ignorant of God’s word, terrified of Global Warming and a host of other made-up boogeymen, and receptive to the idea of unlimited government.

By Almighty God’s decree, all of this is doomed to fail. He will not yield His place to a lot of grubby little puffed-up bugs who went to Harvard.

But it would be good for us, good beyond words, if we would only just stop voting for them.

 


Loony Lib Deletes Green New Deal from Her Website

See the source image

Well, that was fast!

Twenty-something Congresswoman, former bartender, and all-around yonk Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lit up the national chat room last Thursday, Feb. 7, by posting a “Green New Deal” that was certainly one of the most bizarre documents ever to seep out of American politics. After a day of incredulity, mockery, and concern for the bozo’s mental health, the post was deleted from the page on the night of Feb. 7 (https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/02/why_was_the_green_new_deal_yanked_from_ocasiocortezs_website.html).

Among the provisions that got the most flak was 1) to pay a guaranteed income to persons “unwilling to work,” 2) to abolish air travel and replace it with “high-speed rail” [to Europe?], and 3) to tear down every building in America and replace it with a new one.

Well, yeah, that’s pretty crazy stuff, all right. Rubber room material for sure. Cuckoo for cocoa puffs.

So they wiped it off the website and are trying to pretend it was never there, or maybe it was but Republican hackers planted it, or it was just a rough draft that wasn’t supposed to be published, blah-blah-blah. Ocrazyo-Cortez reminds us that “the real one”–apparently there’s a “real Green New Deal” somewhere that doesn’t include any howling at the moon–has “70 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives” and has been endorsed by every single one of  a dozen Democrat presidential candidates. I guess “the real one” only confiscates our cars, brings back Obamacare, and makes us all Citizens Of The World, subject to United Nations supervision… ‘Cause we’re just deplorables and we all need supervision, dontcha know.

So they reached out to steal a marshmallow and got their fingers burned: snatch ’em back, put ’em in your mouth, and try again a little later.

A little bit here, a little bit there, and eventually they’ve got us where they want us–pressed face-down to the floor, with their boots on our necks.

But it’s all To Save The P*L*A*N*E*T! So that makes it necessary.


Why Have They Stopped Pretending?

See the source image

At the moment it seems better to look at some of God’s stuff than man’s. Winter will pass and spring will come, and life will bud forth again.

The more I think of it, the more it troubles me.

Why have Democrats stopped pretending to be human?

Oh, now, what makes me say that! Well, suddenly they want to kill babies as they’re being born. That’s pretty unnatural, don’t you think? They can’t get enough of Drag Queen Story Hour in all their local libraries: who can imagine a reason for that? And now they’ve got their Green New Deal, which proposes to destroy the economy, wipe out every freedom we have (except for the freedom to fornicate: they want to keep that), and which has already won the endorsement of every Democrat who wants to run for president next year. Can it be true? They’re all champing at the bit to forbid us to have our own cars? Can that be possible? ‘Fraid so.

For years and years liberals pretended to be ordinary folks whose ideas were just a little more advanced. Suddenly they have cast off all pretense and stood up straight and tall for infanticide, moral anarchy, and the overthrow of our country as a free republic. Why? Why have they stopped pretending?

Has God simply given them a delusion that they’ll follow off the cliff, and trouble us no more? If only! He could, you know. He could. But has He?

Or are they convinced there are enough lazy and immoral bastards in this country who’ll vote for them no matter what, as long as some free money is part of the deal?

Maybe they think public school and the colleges have done their job, and programmed millions of young Americans to want their country to be like Red China in the 1960s. Programmed them and totally dumbed them down.

Have they mastered the arts of voter fraud to the extent that they now believe they’ll never lose another election, no matter how odious or ridiculous their platform, no matter how revolting their candidate, no matter how disastrous their policies?

I admit it: I’m scared that a major national political party has embraced positions ranging from the appalling to the preposterous, from the eye-rolling daft to the outright evil, with nothing in between. Why have they stopped pretending?

You’d think the American people would massively reject the Democrat program of socialism, censorship, late-term abortion, “Open Borders,” transgender, and turning every nook and cranny of America into the equivalent of San Francisco or Detroit. You’d think they couldn’t get a hundred votes for that.

But they don’t think so. And we need to know why.
