Red States Are Fighting Back Against The Reset – What Does This Mean For The Future? by Brandon Smith

Red states are quietly rebelling against much of the horseshit coming from Washington and the globalists. From Brandon Smith at alt-market.com:

The past year I have been writing extensively about what I call the “great conservative migration”; a shift in US demographics not seen since the Great Depression. Approximately 8.9 million Americans have relocated since the beginning of the covid lockdowns according to the US Postal service, and a large portion of these people are leaving left-leaning blue states for conservative red states in the west and the south. States like California, Illinois, New York and New Jersey were at the top of the list of states people wanted to escape.

The response from leftist states has been amusing. California, for instance, has tried to obscure the data on population loss and has dismissed the existence of the migration. They claim that the state population is actually rising, but fail to mention that most of California’s population “gains” have been from babies born along with an increase in illegal immigration. This has not offset the 267,000 individuals and families that left the state in the last three months 2020 alone. That’s an entire city of people, gone in 90 days.

And where are these people going? Places like Idaho, Texas, Tennessee, Florida, etc. ALL red states that are fighting back against draconian covid mandates and other unconstitutional measures. The only outlier seems to be Oregon, which also has seen a population spike, and this indeed appears to be a migration of Californians to the north.

This leads some conservative groups to believe there is an “invasion” going on of liberals into red states. After looking at the data and meeting many people moving to my own area in Montana, I find the “liberal invasion” narrative to be fraudulent.

Leftists don’t relocate to red states, at least not very often. They do not run away from their safe spaces. Rather, they relocate an hour or two from the cities they are addicted to. This is what the data from San Francisco shows. With over 80% of people moving from the city staying within California. In other words, some leftists want to get out of the cities, but they don’t want to move far from their beloved progressive Utopias and they certainly don’t plan on embedding in conservative strongholds and trying to “take over”.

Why this theory persists is beyond me as it has no basis in reality.

No, the people moving across state lines today are mostly conservatives, they are congregating en masse in red states, and the effects have been rather dramatic. Home prices have skyrocketed due to extreme demand. In Montana, people are buying real estate sight unseen, a lot of it raw land that they are trying to build on. Lumber prices have tripled, and anyone in the construction business is booked a year and a half out. There are new residents actually scouring the message boards looking for ANYONE that can do work for them. There is nobody available. No one I know has seen anything like it in their lifetime.

The Feds Are Coming for Libertarians, by James Bovard

People who believe in less government are a clear and present danger . . . to the government! From James Bovard at libertarianinstitute.org:

On the day that Joe Biden was inaugurated as president, former CIA chief John Brennan announced on television that federal intelligence agencies “are moving in laser-like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about” various suspect groups, specifically mentioning libertarians.

Libertarians are in the federal crosshairs. Six or seven years ago, there was a lot of prattle about how “the libertarian moment has arrived.” I always knew that was hokum. Since then, there has been a huge increase in hostility to libertarians in Washington DC and elsewhere around the country.

Many libertarians assume they have nothing to fear because they are not engaged in seeking to violently overthrow the government. But the feds will be able to find many other pretexts to target peaceful citizens with supposedly subversive ideas.  Federal law already defines “domestic terrorism” far more broadly than most people realize. As the Oregonian recently noted, “Cases categorized as domestic terrorism include allegations of…knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted [government] building or grounds…civil disorders and making threatening communications.” FBI chief Christopher Wray told a Senate Committee that the FBI has 2,000 ongoing domestic terrorism investigations. Wray recognizes the terrorist peril as the ticket to a bigger budget: “We need more agents; we need more analysts.”

The Biden administration is itching for a broad new domestic terrorism law to enable even more crackdowns. Libertarians need to recognize how that definition of terrorism has already mushroomed. Capitol Police acting chief Yogananda Pittman, testifying to Congress, described the January 6 clash at the Capitol as “a terrorist attack by tens of thousands of insurrectionists.” Apparently, anyone who tromped from Trump’s raging speech to the Capitol that day was a terrorist, or at least an “insurrectionist” (“terrorist” spelled with more letters?).

The United States Of 2 Americas, by John Mills

In a rational world the two Americas would simply split apart. From John Mills at theepochtimes.com via zerohedge.com:

f you haven’t noticed, the United States is reorganizing itself into two Americas – blue and red. Although there is a president of the United States, state governors are in many ways now driving the national narrative in this new America.

The president and the vice president are who they are now because six Republican-controlled states forwarded questionable electoral votes, and Vice President Mike Pence missed a historic opportunity to challenge those votes. The current president and vice president seem trapped in foggy and abstract ideological slogans rather than providing executive leadership. Vague generalities and virtue signaling aren’t replacements for executive leadership.

And who are the true executive leaders of the two Americas? Florida and Texas on one side, California and New York on the other side. Their governors essentially dominate the bully pulpit formerly occupied by a sitting president. Many of the rest of the American states have aligned with one side or the other.

The American political conversation has become a modern Dr. Seuss’s “Sneetches With Stars” on steroids as Americans are now beginning to group, assemble, and march separately according to our ideologies. Both sides have equal ownership of this behavior – neither side should be excused or let off the hook on this matter.

The Age of Over-Abundant Elites, by Mark E. Jeftovic

If the Covid scare fizzles out, which it looks like it might , they’ll go back to climate. From Mark E. Jeftovic at bombthrower.com:

I’ve been reading Peter Turchin’s “Ages of Discord”, which tries to look at patterns of societal strife that he found in previous, pre-industrial civilizations such as Rome and France, and examine how it holds up in a post-industrial era. It bears some resemblance to other cycle theories like Strauss and Howe’s “Fourth Turning” or other long-wave models like Kondratiev Waves (K-Waves). The basic premise behind these ideas are that societies undergo cyclical or pendulum-like dynamics between relatively steady states of prosperity and stability, the internal dynamics of which then produce the conditions that precipitate reversions into turbulent periods of strife and chaotic change.

The important thing to keep in mind is that to that the likes of Turchin and other historical statisticians, the periods of societal discord that they try to map may look like this:

Turchin: Long-term dynamics of sociopolitical instability in France, 800–1700 (data from Sorokin 1937).

But when experienced in real life look more like this

St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre, 1572 by François Dubois

If there’s one thing in this highly polarized world that everybody probably does agree on it’s that we are almost certainly already in one of these periods of discord right now.

What I’m finding most interesting from Turchin’s take on this isn’t that periods of stability are not terminated by resource depletion (a la the climate alarmists), or any other “limits to growth” per se. While population growth in pre-industrial societies may bump up against “neo-Malthusian” limits, it sets up a counter-cyclical decline in population growth. How these forces interact in a transition from stability to chaos is that an over-abundance of elites creates a situation of the political class splitting into factions and fighting over the spoils of what is now a shrinking pie in terms of real economic wealth:

 “According to this theory, population growth in excess of the productivity gains of the land has several effects on social institutions. First, it leads to persistent price inflation, falling real wages, rural misery, urban migration, and increased frequency of food riots and wage protests.

Second, rapid expansion of population results in elite overproduction—an increased number of aspirants for the limited supply of elite positions. Increased intra-elite competition leads to the formation of rival patronage networks vying for state rewards. As a result, elites become riven by increasing rivalry and factionalism.

Maxine Waters tells Minnesota BLM protesters ‘to get more confrontational’ one day after violent anti-police clashes erupted across US, by Holden Walter-Warner

Of course, unlike Donald Trump, nothing Maxine Waters says will ever be deemed “incitement.” From Holden-Walter Warner at dailymail.co.uk:

  • California Representative Maxine Waters appeared on the Brooklyn Center protest on Saturday 
  • ‘We gotta stay on the street,’ Waters said, encouraging protesters to ignore the night’s curfew
  • She also talked about previous botched attempts at police reform and how she wants to see Derek Chauvin receive a guilty verdict in his trial, which is set for closing arguments on Monday 
  • Earlier on Saturday, protesters marched to the house of Pete Orput, the man responsible for the second-degree manslaughter charges being faced by former police officer Kimberly Potter
  • There were clashes between protesters and police on Friday night, with cops deploying pepper spray
  • Protests have been more peaceful so far on Saturday night at the Brooklyn Center police station
  • Protests are also taking place in other cities across the nation, including Washington D.C. 

California Representative Maxine Waters joined protesters in Minnesota  as demonstrations entered a seventh night on Saturday after the death of Daunte Wright.

Waters told the protesters at Brooklyn Center that she will fight for justice on their behalf and urged them to ‘to get more confrontational’ – just one day after protests descended into violence.

‘I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long,’ Waters said. ‘We’re looking for a guilty verdict,’ she added in regards to the Derek Chauvin trial. ‘If we don’t, we cannot go away.’

The Time Has Come for a Campaign of Resistance, by Gen Z Conservative

It’s past time for a campaign of resistance, but better late than never. From Gen Z Conservative at genzconservative.com:

a campaign of resistance

As Jordan Schatchel recently wrote on AIER, Covid has killed the free world. The West, that brave group of countries that stood up to and defeated first the fascist threat then the Soviet threat, standing up for republican and democratic ideals against the tyrants of the East, has fallen into the grip of tyrants. Petty tyrants, to be sure, but, as CS Lewis noted in his quotation about the worst type of tyranny, those tyrants are some of the most insidious and evil. Well, I say NO MORE! The time has come for a campaign of resistance. We must stand up to tyranny.

First, let’s review what the Covid tyrants have done to this land and the nations of our friends.

In the US, practically every state not run by a deep-red governor is still shut down to some extent and bureaucrats with any scrap of power are abusing it. The government was prodding people to take a vaccine that can cause blood clots, masks are still a requirement in most stores and restaurants from sea to shining sea, various arbitrary restrictions on opening and capacity plague small business owners, and overweight people still glare (or scream) at you for “putting their health in danger” by not wearing a mask or properly social distancing. As if a lack of a piece of blue cloth is worse for them than fifty years of unhealthy eating. In any case, we have become a nation of tyrants and informants.

The Coming Backlash, by Kurt Schlichter

Kurt Schlichter is correct that a hellacious backlash is building against rampant nonsense. However, he labors under the delusions that the nonsense will be addressed and the backlash contained within the current system. That’s not going to happen. From Kurt Schlichter at theburningplatform.com:

The Coming Backlash

So, a criminal with a warrant who resists arrest meets up with an incompetent government employee who can’t tell a Glock from a taser, then there are Democrat riots, and what’s the result? You must be disarmed.

If you’re looking for logical logic, keep on looking. If you understand the logic of power, you came to the right place.

Facts don’t matter.

Evidence is racist.

2+2=4 means you’re a transphobe.

This is about power, people. Their power over you.

Understand that you can’t reason your way out of this. We’re not going to explain to our enemies why it’s inefficient, ineffective, or unAmerican to do the things they are trying to do. You might as well try to teach your terrier particle physics with a thick, juicy ribeye in sitting his bowl in front of him.

Tangent: Pardon me for potentially misgendering your pooch.

Back to my point. There is no point, except power. They want to control you. If they can’t they want to destroy you. Everything – and I mean everything – is bent to that objective.

There Will Be A Reckoning, by Southern Sage

It Got Serious In A Hurry” didn’t it? The Biden administration is doing so many stupid things, compounding previous administrations’ stupid things, that something’s got to give. From Southern Sage at theburningplatform.com:

Truth is truth To the end of reckoning | Picture Quotes

There will be a reckoning, and that right soon. It is obvious to any thinking person who has held any position of power or authority -in the military, in the intelligence world, the senior ranks of the police, or in critical posts in the civil government or major businesses – that a catastrophe looms.

I do not know if it will be a financial collapse, a military debacle, or a political disaster that degenerates into country-wide violence (or all three), but it is coming. Let me say that many of the people in these senior positions are not thinking people, as recently proven by the publication of a letter by more than one hundred such dolts urging Congress to “investigate” the justified outrage of the American people sparked by the 2020 election farce.

If I thought it was just a cynical Bronx cheer directed at the patriotic people of America I would merely be disgusted. In fact, these high-ranking morons actually believe what they say. I know some of them and the ones I know are utterly clueless about the real state of the country. They sincerely believe every word a Don Lemon or Jake Tapper or Jim Acosta says.

I know some people look to the 2022 or 2024 elections to turn things around. That is a waste of time. Only a Biblical train wreck will give us the opportunity to fight back, and not with Tweets or angry letters to the editor. The only thing the monsters who run this country will understand is force and merciless justice being dealt out to them.

‘Rona Resistance is Growing, by Eric Peters

Have enough people had enough to put up enough resistance to end the nonsense? From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:

 
 

‘Rona Resistance is building.

Not to the virus, which has never been a serious threat to most people anyhow – but to the terrorism practiced in its name, including that enforced by the sickness psychosis equivalent of the German Sturmabteilung – the storm troops – sent out to harass, intimidate, threaten and close restaurants and so on that dared to open their doors to people who were never forced to walk through them – and dared to not force those who did to wear a Diaper.

Just as the SA would bully those who didn’t wear an armband – or perform the required Kabuki of that era, which was to raise their right arm and give the “German” greeting.   

Today it is – functionally – Heil Sickness!

Most people don’t want a confrontation and will put up with a great deal in order to avoid one; all-too-many people are cowardly go-alongs-to-get-alongs. It is why so many “good Germans” performed the NS Kabuki, including the wearing of the outward symbol of their submission to it and the physical rituals associated with it.

You Can’t Win. Don’t Even Try! by James Corbett

How learned helplessness can be unlearned, and its relevance to the current situation. From James Corbett at off-guardian.org:

Imagine you find a prisoner in an unlocked jail cell. Confused, you ask him why he’s sitting there when the door to his cell isn’t even locked.

“Oh, it’s unlocked? I didn’t check.”

You assure him it’s unlocked and ask again why he doesn’t leave.

“Why bother? They’ll probably catch me before I get out.”

You look around in confusion. You explain to him that this isn’t even a prison. That he’s simply been told to wear an orange jumpsuit and stay in an unlocked room, but he doesn’t have to comply. All he has to do is leave.

“Even if I get away, they’ll just find me and bring me back here. Might as well just stay put.”

Do you think this story is ridiculous? Of course it is. But the situation it details is all too true. In fact, researchers have known for half a century the mechanism by which people can be made to effectively lock themselves up inside their own mental prison…and it didn’t take long for the intelligence agencies to put that research to use.

Today, let’s explore the startling true story of how and how the public has been conditioned into a (false) sense of helplessness, and — more important by far — what you can do to break that conditioning.
