Politicians and anti-gun activists will keep up their familiar refrains, which have long been staples of the left-wing establishment. But street-level attitudes are changing in favor of the natural right of self-defense. That may prove to be the ultimate legacy of two very violent years.

The Tide Is Turning On Gun Control
[There is evidence to support this. The polls don’t look good for Democrats:
Republicans currently hold a never-before-seen double-digit lead on a generic ballot according to the latest CNBC poll – meaning voters who would prefer any Republican to any Democrat.
In fact, the numbers are equal parts historic and devastating as the 2022 midterms approach.
“In the past 20 years, CNBC and NBC surveys have never registered a double-digit Republican advantage on congressional preference, with the largest lead ever being 4 points for the GOP,” CNBC reports.
The defund the police movement and the pandemic, which correlates with the huge increase in violent crime, was a big motivator in the massive gun sale numbers, ammo shortages, etc. All those new gun owners have to be looking back and forth between their ballot and their gun. Who is saying they will defund the police and take their guns? It doesn’t take much brain power to make the decision to vote for anyone except that evil SOB.—Joe]
I wonder how heavy a Dem slant these polls have? (They generally do.)
Truly good to hear. It’s another case study in centralized power. And how fast it can destroy so much. But while were at it. Let’s not forget to primary the RINO’s.
As Chris Langan talks about money, power, control. All being parts of the same equation to equal ends. Use any two, to get the other. The conservatives have played the flip side of the DC coin perfectly.
And since it is illegal to give them what they have earned. We must settle for un-electing them.
We should be mindful that communists will be pulling even worse events than the ones of the past over this news.
The beast may hide for a while, but it never sleeps. And what it can’t control. It will try to destroy.
And yet we went though something like this in the 1994 election when Republicans swept the House. And what has happened since then? In the 2000s Republicans held both houses and the Whitehouse. And the reach and power of the fed gov has increased, and spending has increased every year no matter who’s in office, the Fed reserve has faked up more money, etc., etc. And this has been going on for generations, with a minor slow-down or even a slight pause here and there, but the trajectory has never changed.
And so, to the extent that the general public appears to have suddenly “found Jesus” (again) with regard to some specific issue here or there, it merely shows the increasing divide between those who presume and pretend to serve the public and the public itself; a divide which will only grow wider with time. Whether the poll shows a fundamental shift in principles, or allegiance to principles, remains to be seen, but even then; if a majority of people were to become unshakable libertarians tomorrow it would only widen that divide between the “servants” (so-called) and the people.
It would require all-out war to change the trajectory of this country, regardless what the majority thinks, because the powers-that-should-not-be did not get their power from us, and they know of no reason why we should take it away.
There was a member of the British Parliament years ago, who was a rat bastard Marxist-at-heart revolutionary, but who nonetheless came up with five poignant questions in regard to public figures;
1. What power do you have?
2. Where did you get this power from?
3. In whose interests do you use it?
4. To whom are you accountable?
5. How do we get rid of you?
We as a people do NOT know the answers to numbers 1-4. Haven’t a clue. We know the rationalizations, of course, but that’s another subject altogether and it leads us nowhere.
To #5 you can always say, “Vote the bums out!” and to that I give you the quote, once again, from one of Bill Clinton’s mentors, Carroll Quigley;
“The argument [that the] two parties should represent opposed ideas and policies, one perhaps of the right and the other of the left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinate and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. The policies that are vital and necessary for America are no longer subjects of significant disagreement, but are disputable only in details of procedure, priority or method.” — Carroll Quigley, Bill Clinon’s mentor
“Without any profound or extensive shifts in policy” I repeat, to drive home the point that we’ve been on the same trajectory (toward Romish authoritarianism) for well over 100 years and I see no signs of that trajectory changing. Nor do I believe that the American people, for the most part, i.e. in majority, would prefer such a change in trajectory such that the next 100 years would consist of an inexorable progression toward absolute liberty in the American sense. More likely is that the false selling points for (the lies which support) central planning and coercive redistribution are embraced by the majority, and so the only points of real contention are in the details and style of the implementation of authoritarianism, and in the rationalizations used to support the authoritarianism, exactly as Quigley says.
Just about everyone wants a Big Brother, or a Mommy, so all that we’re left to argue over is the type and personality of that brother or mommy, and which among us gets the most attention and largess verses which is forced to pay the bills and to shut up. And THAT describes well enough the two worldly alliances, bitterly fighting one against the other, both entirely wrong, and both ultimately (at the highest command and control level) on the same side.
And so I say that it doesn’t matter in the least bit, in the long run, which “side” wins, because the end result will be the exactly same one way or another. It’s the Dialectic Method at work;
Thesis (a lie)
+ Antithesis (also a lie)
= Synthesis (what the leader of both liars wanted all along, but had to put us through generations of conflict and misery before we’d accept it)
The gun grabbers have never really been a majority. Just a very vocal and well entrenched minority. And since their agenda serves the needs of most politicians they get top billing while gun rights get buried whenever possible. As for the polling….who cares. With “mail in voting” and total control of Dominion voting systems the left really has no need to care about polls. ratings or the actual voting populace. They have proven they can create as many votes as they need to win whatever race they wish to win. Anyone who doesn’t think they will continue with this working strategy is a moron.
Wow. Lyle just knocked it out of the park.
The only difference between the elephant and the jackass is the lies they tell you while they strip your money, freedom and everything else held dear to you.
Will it matter if the boot on your neck is red or blue?
The big takeaway from me is that they are not even pretending anymore.
