Who Will They Get to Do the Tyrants’ Dirty Work? By Kurt Schlichter

Much of the police and many members of the “woke” military are cut from the same cloth as the disgraces who stood around in Uvalde while children were being murdered. From Kurt Schlichter at townhall.com:

The shameful video of Uvalde cops cowering in the hallway while some freakish mutant murdered little kids brings to mind an important point. It’s not a point about the cowardice of badly-led police officers – that point has been made. It’s not the hygiene focus of the guy who paused just standing there to splurt a dollop of hand sanitizer into his paw. It’s not even about the fact that we normal citizens cannot rely on the forces of the government to protect us.

It is the fact that the members of our garbage ruling elite cannot rely on the forces of the government to protect them.

We have seen the systematic weaponization of law enforcement against normal people under the Biden dorktatorship. The FBI has become the personal Stasi of the Democrats, seizing elderly men with SWAT teams, while the DOJ has been selectively prosecuting conservatives, or those believed to be conservative-aligned, but giving a pass to those terrorists, rioters, and scumbags aligned with the trash donkey political party. Even local law enforcement is getting into the act in some places – a heroic bodega worker stabbed a multi-felon convict to death before the criminal could beat him to death in New York. Now he’s facing a murder charge, though the stiff should have still been in jail.

Stupidity, Evil and the Decline of the US, by Doug Casey

Mental and moral deterioration has consequences. From Doug Casey at internationalman.com:

(Today’s article is an adaptation from one of Doug’s speeches.)

It used to be that America was a country of free thinkers.

“Say what you think, and think what you say.” That’s an expression you don’t hear much anymore.

It’s much more like the world of 1984 where everything is “double think.” You need to think twice before you say something in public. You think three times before you say something when you’re standing in an airport line.

Regrettably, the US is no longer the land of the free and the home of the brave. It’s become the land of whipped and whimpering dogs that roll over on their backs and wet themselves when confronted with authority.

Now, why are Americans this way? Let me give you two reasons—though there are many more.

I’m not “Brave”;You’re Just a P—y. By Dr. Naomi Wolf

Sorry, there’s no middle ground between courage and cowardice. Dr. Naomi Wolf refuses to play along with those who choose the latter. From Wolf at naomiwolf.substack.com:

On courage. And on the DMs that I am sent that seek to justify cowardice, at a time when some bravery is needed from us all.

Some people who love me advised me not to write this essay, and not to use its current title. “Take the high road,” I was advised.

Usually that is a good idea, but not in this case — not at this moment. In this essay I need to talk about some people — mainly privileged people, people who could make a difference in areas where most can’t — who are trying to justify their monumental, world-changing cowardice, at a time when we all need to be at least somewhat brave.

I am done with tolerating this quietly.

For a year and a half now, after it became clear that this crisis was never about “the virus” but rather about a global bid to kill off our free world and suppress all of our freedoms — since I and many others have been publicly vocal about this danger and doing all we can to alert our community — that is to say, humanity — I’ve been getting direct messages (“DMs”). And they are all kind of similar. And they gross me out. Here’s why.

In the DMs, people whom I know socially or professionally — people from journalism, from politics, from medicine, from science (most of them upper-middle- class ‘men in suits’) — say something like: “Naomi, I really respect your actions right now. I totally agree with what you are saying. But of course I can’t say anything publicly because [fill in the nonsensical, craven reason].”

The nonsensical and craven reason that follows this shameful message is typically something along the lines of, “My boss will get mad at me” or “My professional peers will have a problem with my speaking up.” It’s never even, “I have bills to pay.”

Your boss will get mad at you, O you who DM?

Do you understand what is at stake? If you continue to comply and collude with what has become a tyrannical oligopoly, your kids will live as slaves and as serfs forever.

Cowardly Trudeau Flees Home Amidst Convoy Protest, by Blueapples

At least 95 percent of politicians are through-and-through cowards. From Blueapples at zerohedge.com:

As Prime Minister of Canada, the “popular” Justin Trudeau (seen being pelted by rocks here) has led the charge ushering in some of the most restrictive measures in the world. In the mold of other former crown dependencies like New Zealand and Australia, doing anything in Canada without proof of vaccination is impossible. Everything from getting on domestic flight or entering a department store is verboten for the unvaxxed untermensch in Trudeau’s dystopian phantasmagoria.

Though the Prime Minister’s thirst for power has been insatiable with restriction after restriction being imposed by his heavy hand, leaving many Canadians feeling powerless, one group has risen against the tide. As a world-record convoy of over 2,700 trucks measuring 70 kilometers descended upon the Canadian capital finally arrived on Friday evening, Justin Trudeau exemplified his absolute lack of leadership as he couldn’t muster the courage to face the protest against the medical tyranny he has imposed. In the days preceding the convoy’s arrival in Ottawa, Prime Minister Trudeau announced that he would enter into self-isolation for five days as he had (gasp!) been exposed to COVID-19.

Supreme Court Is Turning Constitution Into 2-Legged Stool by Failing to Adjudicate Texas Lawsuit, by Conrad Black

Never underestimate the importance of cowardice in the affairs and history of man. From Conrad Black at theepochtimes.com:

The refusal of the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the suit of Texas and 17 other states against four states (Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) that were alleged not to have conducted fair presidential elections, on the grounds of Texas’s lack of standing, is a grievous abdication.

The claim of Texas and the other states was that failing to protect against fraudulent voting on a large scale that affected the results for each state, and cumulatively between the defendant states to affect the outcome of the election of the president and vice president, was a violation of Texas’s right to an adequate level of assurance that the constitutional process of selection of the president and vice president was truly followed.

The attorney general of Pennsylvania called the Texas lawsuit a “seditious” attempt to disenfranchise the people of his state, and the Trump-hating media gave it the usual total-immersion in reflexive mockery.

Official processes aren’t more important than the election of the president; no right is more fundamental than the assurance of the constitutional selection of the president. The Supreme Court’s decision can only be seen as another illustration of its determination under notoriously controversy-averse Chief Justice John Roberts to avoid any judgment that might produce a partisan backlash.

Coronavirus Silence Is Not Golden: The Pathetic Truth About Americans, by Gary D. Barnett

The American people have offered almost no resistance to losing what little remained of their freedom. From Gary D. Barnett at lewrockwell.com:

“The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”
~ Albert Einstein–“The Harper Book of Quotations Revised Edition”. Book by Robert I. Fitzhenry, p. 356, 1993.

There is only one cure for apathy, and that cure is knowledge in the form of education about matters not before understood. But that is not enough, because any new understanding or truth must be accepted, and then acted upon, for without both these measures, failure is guaranteed, and any underlying indifference can only bring about a new and deeper root of totalitarianism.

Evil is something that has been all to evident throughout human history, so evident in fact that any study of these matters will bring even the strongest and most enlightened men to their knees in sorrow. This has always been difficult for me to accept, because although all of us have the capability of evil thoughts or actions, most of us do not physically act on those deep-seated emotions.  Why do most suppress these innate desires, while some thrive on wickedness? This has troubled me for a lifetime, but I have never been able to answer this question in my own mind.

She Said That? 4/7/16

From Helen Keller, (1880-1968) American writer and social activist, Let Us Have Faith (1940):

Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.
