Palm Beach neighbor chips away at the base

But if 45's "silent majority" don't even want to hear this ... ? (Shown recently on The View)

On Monuments And Who Has Really Run A "Culture War," With Thanks To NNadir For the Link

This talk should be required viewing for every white American.


Jeffrey Robinson's theme: "... Who controls the past controls the future. If you control the narrative about what is true about our past, that narrative sets the mark for how we go forward in the future. If you control the truth about the past, then you have the path to the future. Who controls the present controls the past...People are listening...when we do not deal with the ugly part of the truth about our history, we have no chance of going forward in any productive way...Never underestimate the pull of the status quo"...



COVID Exhaustion

The Full Ballot Or The Bullet -- Political Seeds of Today

Fanfare For the Common Man -- Aaron Copland

There are other, faster versions. But today, it should be sad, stately.

75%

Every man with a red dot on his face who signed the Declaration of Independence OWNED Africans, and enslaved Africans.

Yes, they were the elite of their time, and aware of the debates on slavery.

Over 75% of them.

American mythology has got to go.

Why? Because only children can handle only a story when they can't handle the truth.

Adults expect true history -- history that tells objective truth, not some well intended version of the truth.

True history -- the truth, whole truth and nothing but the truth -- is the solid foundation of our patriotism. Not myths.

Myths never help to form a more perfect union. Never.


The Rushmore Red Meat Speech to Whip Up a Second Civil War By TelePromptR

His speech was billed as "remarks," but holy hell, this must be longer than his inaugural speech -- the second 'american carnage' speech, in my view.

If you think this is long, you should see the full transcript -- a whole history of America's official story.

Partial transcript:

... 1776 represented the culmination of thousands of years of Western civilization ... And yet, as we meet here tonight, there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing. Our ancestors fought so hard for struggled. They bled to secure. Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history to fame.

Our heroes erase our values and indoctrinate. Our children. Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders to face our most sacred memorials and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities. Many of these people have no idea why they're doing this, but some know exactly what they are doing. They think the American people are weak and soft and submissive, but now the American people are strong and proud and they will not allow our country and all of its values, history and culture to be taken from them.

One of their political weapons is cancel culture, driving people from their jobs, shaming, dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. This is the very definition of totalitarianism and it is completely alien to our culture and to our values. And it has absolutely no place in the United States of America.

This attack on our Liberty. Our magnificent Liberty must be stopped, and it will be stopped very quickly. We will expose this dangerous movement, protect our nation's children and this radical assault and preserve our beloved American way of life in our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms.

There is a new far left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language performance rituals, recite its mantras and follow its command. Then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. It's not going to happen to us. Make no mistake. This left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American revolution in so doing, they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence, and hunger, and that lifted humanity to new Heights of achievement, discovery, and progress to make this possible.

They are determined to tear down every statue, symbol, and memory of our national heritage. That's very true, actually. That is why I am deploying federal law enforcement to protect our monuments, arrest the riders prosecuting offenders to the fullest extent of the law. I am pleased to report that yesterday...


Federal agents arrested the suspected ringleader of the attack on the statue of the great Andrew Jackson in Washington, DC. And in addition, hundreds more have been arrested. Under the executive order I signed last week, pertaining to the veterans Memorial preservation and recognition act and other laws, people who damage or deface federal statues or monuments will get a minimum of 10 years in prison.

... Our people have a great memory. They will never forget the destruction of statues and monuments to George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, abolitionists and many others. The violent mayhem we have seen in the streets and cities that are run by liberal Democrats in every case is the predictable result of years of extreme indoctrination and bias and education, journalism, and other cultural institutions against every law of society and nature.

Our children are taught in school to hate their own country. And to believe that the men and women who built it were not heroes, but that were villains. The radical view of American history is a web of lies.
All perspective is removed. Every virtue is obscured. Every motive is twisted. Every fact is distorted and every floor has magnified until the history is purged.

... This movement is openly attacking the legacies of every person on Mount Rushmore. They defile the memory of Washington, Jefferson Lincoln and Roosevelt. Today we will set history and history's records straight. Before these figures were immortalized in stone...

No movement that seeks to dismantle these treasured American legacies can possibly have a love of America at its heart. Can't happen. No person who remains quiet at the destruction of this resplendent heritage can possibly lead us to a better future....

The radical ideology attacking our country advances under the banner of social justice, but in truth, it would demolish both justice and society. It would transform justice into an instrument of division and vengeance, and it would turn our free and inclusive society into a place of repression, domination, and exclusion.

They want to silence us, but we will not be silenced.
Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. We will stay the truth and full without apology. We declare that the United States of America is the most, just an exceptional nation ever to exist ...

... We believe in equal opportunity, equal justice and equal treatment for citizens of every race, background, religion, and create every child of every color born and unborn is made in the Holy image of God. We want free and open debate, not speech codes and cancel culture...

We embrace tolerance, not prejudice. We support the courageous men and women of law enforcement. We will never abolish our police or our great second amendment, which gives us the right to keep and bear arms. We believe that our children should be taught to love their country, honor their history and respect our great American flag. ...

...We stand tall, we stand proud and we only kneel to almighty God ... as we strive to build an even better and greater future. Those who seek to erase our heritage, want Americans to forget our pride and our great dignity so that we can no longer understand ourselves or America's destiny.

... In toppling the heroes of 1776, they seek to dissolve the bonds of love and loyalty that we feel for our country and that we feel for each other. Their goal is not a better America. Their goal is to end America. In its place. They want power for themselves, but just as patriots did in centuries past the American people will stand in their way and we will win and win quickly....

And with great dignity, We will never let them rip America's heroes from our monuments or from our hearts. By tearing down Washington and Jefferson, these radicals would tear down the very, for which men gave their lives to win the civil war. They would erase the memory that inspired those soldiers to go to their deaths, singing these words of the battle hymn of the Republic. ...

... They would tear down the principles that propelled the abolition of slavery and ultimately around the world ending an evil institution that had plagued humanity for thousands and thousands of years, our opponents would tear apart the very documents that Martin Luther King used to express his dream and the ideas that were the foundation of the righteous movement for civil rights, they would tear down the beliefs, culture, and identity that have made America the most vibrant and tolerant society in the history of the earth....

For the sake of our honor, for the sake of our children, for the sake of our union, we must protect and preserve our history, our heritage, and our great heroes here tonight before the eyes of our forefathers Americans declare again, as we did 244 years ago, we will not be tyrannized. We will not be demeaned and we will not be intimidated by bad evil people...

...So today under the authority vested in me as President of the United States, I am announcing the creation of a new monument to the giants of our past. I am signing an executive order to establish the national guard of American heroes, a vast outdoor park that will feature the statues of the greatest Americans to ever live....

From this night, and from this magnificent place, let us go forward United in our purpose and re-dedicated in our resolve, we will raise the next generation of American Patriots. We will write the next thrilling chapter of the American adventure. And we will teach our children to know that they live in a land of legends,
that nothing can stop them and that no one can hold them down....

...And that our enemies fear, because we will never forget that the American freedom exists for American greatness. And that's what we have American greatness. Centuries from now, our legacy will be the cities. We built the champions we forged the good that we did and the monuments we created to inspire us ...


This is the speech to make his cult forget everything they've seen and heard and read. It was intended to elevate him such that the crowd would echo operatives' cry of "four more years!"

Better to know where he's trying to take his cult than to be taken by surprise. If we've been exhausted by paying attention so far, we'll really have to pay attention to what he's up to from now on. In his world, ambush always gives the advantage. He will animalize and demonize us before he's done.

After all the suffering, death, ruined economy, all the lies, after Tulsa, if this isn't tyranny wrapped in the flag and bible, then I've been reading history wrong.

Frederick Douglass -- "What To The Slave Is The 4th of July?" -- Full Version

Full version because this speech is almost never presented in its entirety, or it's glossed over altogether, with the best parts left out.

Frederick Douglass deserves the full recognition of his humility, self-made intellectual power and courage in confronting white Americans with their horrible, structured racism, the practices later backed by the 13th Amendment, with all the presumptions of privilege whites consider "normal" to this day.

Once enslaved Blacks knew what the ratified U.S. Constitution (1789) actually said,

Frederick Douglass's speech (1852) stands next to David Walker's Appeal (1829) as official declarations of Black resistance.

The white supremacists' hunt had already begun, with dogs, whips, and guns drawn. For 170 years our fellow Americans have lived with this horror. We see it across America every day. Every single day.

Either this 232 year-old horror ends this year, or it will become the same issue for lazily indifferent white people who have brought this upon themselves. There needn't be any sympathy, any longer, for their assertions of ignorance. White people got no excuse.

Aggressive defenders of white privilege and innocence had better snap out of their fog and recognize.

As with masks, racist whites will have to literally see the collapse of their double standard bubble, and literally be trained to accept that justice and equality protect their freedom, too.



The Case for Susan Rice

One name stands out: Susan Rice

Vice President Biden? Joe?

You and she were there for President Obama’s funding the U.S. CyberCommand's establishment.

You and she are experienced and well respected internationally.

She will not diminish Democratic Party numbers in the Senate.

She will ADD so much more to rebuild our international alliances while you rebuild our domestic and military strengths.

You both have had the most experience in building a 2,000+ person transition team of professionals and experts who can hit the ground running in 2021.

Susan Rice's civilian interface with the U.S. Military will make her as good a commander-in-chief as any candidate of either party in 2024.

Please, Joe, choose Susan Rice for your VP.

America knows you, and the world will welcome you both back.



Excerpts from Wikipedia:


Born in DC, valedictorian of her all-glrs prep school, Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford, Doctorate from Oxford.

Her doctoral dissertation was entitled Commonwealth Initiative in Zimbabwe, 1979–1980: Implications for International Peacekeeping. Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, honored her dissertation as the UK's most distinguished in international relations.[

Rice played a major role in peace negotiations between Ethiopia and Eritrea during the Eritrean–Ethiopian War, leading to the Algiers Agreement in 2000 ending the conflict.

In 2008 Rice was named to the advisory board of the Obama–Biden Transition Project.

Rice served as National Security Advisor for Obama, US Ambassador to the United Nations, served as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, and in the National Security Council under Clinton.

During her tenure at the United Nations, Rice championed a human rights and anti-poverty agenda, elevated climate change and women's rights as global priorities, and committed the U.S. to agreements such as the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and the U.N. Millennium Development Goals. Rice led the fight to advance LGBT rights at the U.N. Human Rights Counciland was recognized for her staunch defense of Israel at the Security Council.[

Rice informed the House Intelligence Committee in September 2017 that she requested the unmasking because of a redacted report provided by the intelligence services concerning an undisclosed visit to the United States by United Arab Emirates crown prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan in December 2016. During the visit al-Nahyan met with Steve Bannon, Michael Flynn and Jared Kushner at Trump Tower in New York.

After U.S. Senator Susan Collins from Maine voted in favor of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, Rice publicly considered a challenge to Collins in 2020.

She is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Aspen Strategy Group.

In 2017, Rice was presented with the Award of Commander, the Legion of Honour of France, by French president François Hollande for her contributions to Franco-American relations.

Zero Days by Alex Gibney

If you haven't seen this yet, it builds awareness about how our U.S. Cyber Command was built and funded.
It's also about just how much smarter our President Obama was than we really knew.
It's not just about lessons from Stuxnet that Americans should be aware of, but how cyber war systems can shut the world down.

This trailer doesn't do the documentary justice, but it gives a sliver of an idea. The documentary isn't as dated as its release date might make it appear to be.

It also tells us just how bad our current executive branch and Senate Republicans really are. And how this president hasn't a clue about how dangerous the Chinese and Russians could be.
