Tucker Carlson: We Are Being Replaced

 If you didn't see it Monday, Tucker Carlson had a truly magnificent opening monologue.  The monologue was about the Democrats changing the voting public and diluting the power of the native population.  This necessarily disenfranchises the people who live here, but nobody seems to care.  Carlson asks why Americans are putting up with it?  But we know the answer don't we?  The Democrats stole the election, that's why.  We didn't let it, they stole it.

Andrea Widburg has brought the entire monologue for your viewing pleasure at the American Thinker at Tucker's magnificent statement about Democrats disenfranchising Americans. Carlson shows what happened to California after 1986, when President Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act. Within a decade, no Republican for state wide office can get elected.  Demographics is destiny, and we are rapidly being replaced.

Corporations Should Stay In There Lane and Out of Politics

Over at The Federalist today, Tristan Justice has a piece entitled It's Not Okay For Corporations To Take Away Our Freedom Just Because Their Not Government. It is called "staying in their lane," and they are waaay out of theirs. More to the point, these people, who have benefited from all that America has to offer, rather than being grateful, seem to feel they have been appointed to rule over everyone.  Perhaps we should use the Anti-Trust laws to break up some of these corporations. Take Coca-Cola, as an example. Coke contributes to the obesity epidemic that plagues our nation. There is no reason they should be allowed to continue. After all, Big Sugar is as bad as Big Tobacco was. Break up Coke, and make an example of them. And make an example of them BECAUSE they are interfering in politics. After all, who voted for the CEO of Coca-Cola.  Indeed, when did any of them appear on a ballot?

As a conservative, I have typically sided with the corporations, but I now recognize that it was a mistake. Being ruled by corporations is worse that being ruled by kings and tyrants. Kings and tyrants may be capricious, but having 100 corporations setting 100 sets of rules many of which may be conflicting seems a recipe for disaster.  The only thing that is half way acceptable to me is having laws by representatives who have been elected in free and fair elections with proper laws in place to guarantee election integrity.  Oh, and those laws should comport with the laws of God.  What is shaping up, however, government by Fascism.  We have seen this before, and it did not end well.

But there are 100 corporations, and all of them need to be made examples of in some way or another.  The corporation was a relatively modern invention.  But capitalism has been around since man first figured out how to trade what he had for what he needed.  Maybe we should outlaw corporations, and encourage small proprietorships again.  Definitely we should take away any tax break they receive, as Georgia proposes for Delta.

In any case, go read the highlight article, and ponder what we can do to reign in these "woke" ingrates.

Struggling With Faith

 Michael Brown has an article today at Townhall.com on Loving God with All Our Hearts and All Our Minds. Loving God is the essence of the First Commandment, and it has been said that it is the only Commandment, because if we did, we wouldn't need the other nine. It reads: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.” Exodus 20:2-3. But Jesus explains the true meaning of it in Matthew. When asked which is the greatest Commandment, he summarized the Law and the Prophets with “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. And the Second is like it: you shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Would that we could actually do these things!

Brown writes about the many people who do not have a relationship with God, or seem to be looking in all the wrong places. The point though is that our God is not offended by questions. Part of having faith is having questions.
All this makes for a toxic mix of unbelief, but one which is also perfectly understandable given the many secular influences on young people today, coupled with their lack of deep, spiritual experiences. To browbeat them for their lack of faith is to do the devil’s work.
Instead, we need to provide an environment where people of all ages can ask their questions, a place where they can feel secure in their searching, a place where they can be honest about their doubts. We also need to provide an environment where they can truly meet the Lord and experience Him for themselves. Without a deep, strong spiritual experience in my own life during those times of intellectual testing and before I had discovered solid answers, that testing might just have pulled me away.
...snip...
But for the moment, I simply want to underscore the importance of us welcoming questions about our faith and challenges to our faith. In order to do this, we need to know the Lord for ourselves and have a strong foundation in our own lives, both spiritually and intellectually.
Only then can we love the Lord with all our hearts and with all our minds. And only then can we help others love Him fully for themselves.
As Jacob was preparing to cross the river and confront his estranged brother Esau, he wrestled with God the whole night through. When God saw he could not prevail, he knocked out his hip joint in order to escape. Thereafter, Jacob would be called "Israel." So God expects us to struggle and question. Because as long as we are doing so, we have a relationship with him. the notion that we must believe certain things unquestionably is probably the biggest obstruction to beginning down the road to true faith. Rather, faith is more of a journey, like life itself.

We Are Each Of Us Masterpieces of God's Creative Spirit

Yesterday's post was about The Most Dangerous Man In The World, and the fact that he and his merry band of billionaires and oligarchs would rule us by controlling every aspect of our lives. The thing about it is that they view us, those they intend to rule, as interchangeable widgets in a vast machine. We are not valuable because we are human, but only for what we can provide to the benefit of our masters, which they conveniently define as society. This gang, which styles itself as the World Economic Forum, views itself, like the nobility before it, as somehow responsible for providing for the people's welfare. It is the same condescending noblesse oblige that eventually saw the nobility go the way of the dinosaur. I am not sure what is in the water in Germany that causes Germans to dream of dominating the World, but every fictional enemy of the people seems to have a German accent. Just sayin'.

Today, at the American Thinker Andrea Widburg tells us that Leftists Will Say Anything To Keep People Masked. You should, of course, read the whole post for your daily dose of outrage. However, the reason I am highlighting it today is because of this quote:

And of course, there’s that same insistence we’ve heard all year about protecting others. But at this point, when the disease is no longer a pandemic, and vaccinated people are not carriers, those who are vaccinated are not protecting others by wearing a mask. It’s theater. Still, as the author of the article says, “don’t be a jerk.”
But what’s really jerky is the effort to erase Americans’ individuality. Our faces are the most immediately recognizable thing about us. Just that little patch of our body’s geography has 42 muscles that enable us to communicate wordlessly with others.
Nothing makes clearer how masks delete who we are than smiling at babies. In a pre-mask era, the babies smiled back. Nowadays, if you smile at babies, all you get back is a blank look – and then you realize that all they see in your face is a mask.
There is nothing polite about – and it’s incredibly jerky to – force people into unhygienic, useless, dangerous, and personality-deleting masks. Instead, it seems to be part of a concerted effort to delete the American sense that we are not a faceless nation of drones (or serfs) but are, instead, unique individuals.

And that is the point I tried to get across yesterday, but couldn't find the words. We are each of us unique individuals, unique masterpieces of God's creative spirit. And God does not make mistakes. But it is this unique individuality that the Left, and of course the gang of oligarchs want to erase.

The Most Dangerous Man In The World

 You know about the "Mask Nazis," right?  These are the people who take it upon themselves to be the sheriffs of mask wearing.  I think they would like to be able to hand out tickets for those caught not wearing their masks, or not wearing them "correctly."  You know, covering the mouth and the nose.  And of course, there are also the "salt Nazis."  These are the people who of course don't put salt on anything they cook, and by golly, you should put salt on anything you cook either.  These people have found what in their minds is THE TRUTH, and they are bound and determined to force everyone to comply with it.

But, it occurs to me that if Klaus Schwab has his way, we all may be pouring salt on everything we eat, not wearing masks, and engaging in other risky behaviors because life simply won't be worth extending.  So who is this Klaus Schwab, you say?  Well, John Mac Ghlionn asks Is Kaus Schwab The Most Dangerous Man In The World? over at Townhall.com. It seems that Klaus and the gang over at the World Economic Forum have plans for you life, and those plans won't be fun. "You vill own nothing, and you vill be happy!" Or else.

"Welcome to the year 2030. Welcome to my city - or should I say, 'our city'. I don't own anything. I don't own a car. I don't own a house. I don't own any appliances or any clothes. It might seem odd to you, but it makes perfect sense for us in this city. Everything you considered a product, has now become a service.'
These are not lines from an episode of “Black Mirror.” No, these lines come directly from the World Economic Forum website. Founded in 1970, the World Economic Forum (WEF) is arguably the most influential platform in the world. Each year, some of the most influential figures in politics and tech gather for a meeting in Davos. The most recent meeting occurred in January, and the topics discussed are of profound importance.
As Anthony P. Mueller, a professor of economics, warns, “The main thrust of the forum is global control. Free markets and individual choice do not stand as the top values, but state interventionism and collectivism. Individual liberty and private property are to disappear from this planet by 2030.”
There are no words for the arrogance and hubris of these people (Bill Gates is one of them). Bill Gates is also involved in a scheme to cool the planet by spreading light reflecting salts in the stratosphere. Who appointed Bill Gates to be God. For that matter, who appointed Klaus Schab to be the determiner of what each of our lives should be. Admittedly, some of our purchases are emotional, in that people go shopping as a form of therapy, or to fill a hole in their soul. But can you imagine, say, Brian Setzer without his Gretsch guitar, or Wynton Marsalis without his signature trumpet? I no longer use a slide rule, but I will die with it, as with some of my books that I simply can not give up. These are tools, that one uses every day. And what one does gives us purpose.
In 2018, the German wrote a book called Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
With the merging of physical, digital, and biological worlds, this revolution is like nothing that came before. All other revolutions relied on human input. This revolution, however, eliminates millions, if not billions, of people from the employment equation.
...snip...
While the eradication of some jobs is both necessary and laudable, most jobs are not inherently dangerous. They give people a sense of purpose, and a sense of purpose is essential to living life to its fullest. Universal Basic Income (UBI) may help to put food on the table, but it can never address the problem of purpose. Where will our purpose come from when so many jobs are gone?
The disingenuous “retrain the masses” arguments simply don’t work, either. Retrain people for what? In the future, with recursive self-improvement, AI systems will be able to learn from their mistakes and ultimately become smarter. No need for human input. In fact, no need for humans.
I feel that these extremely wealthy oligarchs look at the rest of us as widgets in their machines. In their minds, we do not have value in and of ourselves. We are not made in image of God, because in their minds, Klaus Schwab is God.In their own minds, they have accounted for our minimum physical needs, but they have forgotten the most important part of anyone is spiritual. China Anyone?

Tucker Carlson: “Gun control is not about guns. Gun Control is about who controls America"

 I have been busy, so I am just now looking at Tucker Carlson Tonight for Thursday. But if you don't have it recorded, you need to see it. You can find it at The Daily Wire Tucker Carlson Warns Biden's Crackdown On Second Amendment Isn't About Guns, It's About Control. While most commenters on the right are generally in favor of rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment, but the seldom talk about. Thus, as someone with a big megaphone, I was pleased to see Tucker Carlson express exactly what is going on here.

“Gun control is not about guns. Gun Control is about who controls America,” Carlson said. “Is it the population as in a democracy? Or does all control go to a small group of authoritarians as in oligarchy? Those are the stakes in the gun control debate. It’s not about guns, it’s about who runs the country. So with that in mind, Joe Biden’s speech calling for more gun control should make you uncomfortable. Almost nothing Biden said was true.”
Go listen to Carlson at the Daily Wire if you haven't heard it.

Vaccine Passports Must Not Be Allowed

 Naomi Wolf tells us why Vaccine Passports are the last step to Fascism. This is slavery. Wolf, who runs a tech company explains how a vaccine passport can be used to track and monitor you and all your friends and acquaintances, and punish you for stepping out of line.  She points out that if you don't at least talk the state line on everything, the vaccine passport can be used to deny you the ability to buy food, or anything else.  Particularly if the come up with a digital currency, which the government is working on, your digital account can be wiped out for dissenting from some policy or another.  Think vaccine passport, combined with digital currency and critical race theory. 

Now, even though all this is Unconstitutional, imagine that the Supreme Court members are also under this same system.  Do you think they are going to rule it such?  They would be signing their own death warrants.  Once they have this system in place, they have you and everybody else under full control.

We can not allow these things to happen.
