Imagine this reality: every morning, you wake up and go into the kitchen. At the table sits a baby, with pretty blue eyes and a cheerful smile. In front of this baby are both delicious waffles, and a .38 special.
The baby picks up the gun. “No, no,” you say. “That is dangerous! Try this delicious waffle with syrup instead.”
No. The baby cocks the gun, and places it against its head. It looks at you with angry and sad eyes, as if to say, “I have the power and I do whatever I want, whatever the cost.”
The explosion takes you by surprise, every time. The combined BAP! sound consists of the gun going off and the bloodspatter slapping the table. The little eyes — tiny, blue, theoretically hopeful eyes — end up in your lap.
The next morning, you wake up and do it again.
In my reading of the sum total of history, humanity has been struggling to form civilization for aeons. Every time we make one, it immediately begins producing people who want to destroy it, and since it refuses to remove them, dies by their hand, like a baby shooting itself in the head.
We in fact know why civilizations self-destruct and how they self-destruct, but not why people go along with it. We know that people always do, especially the smarter. The more intelligent the society, the more it wants to kill itself.
If humanity wants to have a future, we have to beat the suicidal impulse behind civilizations.
Part of this, in 2020, comes down to escaping the dying liberal democratic order. Liberal democracy, civil rights, and market socialism come together to make a system where everyone sells lots of garbage, government pays the poor to buy it, imports cheap labor to make it, and then comes up with new reasons to steal money to save the poor, women, LGBT, and ethnic minorities.
This system has been failing for some time. When your birth rates drop, existential misery goes up, and your culture mostly mocks things like jobs, families, and nation, you know that you have made your people both bored and unhappy. This means that they perceive that their time is being wasted. Add that to almost $30tn in debt and you can see that the USA is in free-fall.
The rise of Nigel Farage, Donald Trump, the Visegrad group, and Marine LePen occurred because they realized that, with the massive discontent there is now, they have a chance of saving democracy from itself. Like that blue-eyed baby, it just wants an excuse to blow its own head off, and has similar lack of awareness of what happens after the bang.
In turn that means that the forces driving their popularity are aided by their own unique talents, but will continue even if they are removed. This tells us fact #1 about election 2020: the Left cannot win, because history has turned against them.
From that we can derive a second logical fact. Liberal democracy has failed, which means that most people will still support it, because people hate change, even if it is change back from the “hope and change” of previous generations. Denialists are reckless because their hearts are full of doubt, so they are acting out externally in order to try to convince themselves. This makes them into fanatics who will ignore whatever consequences of their actions exist.
That in turn tells us a couple more things. Joe Biden is not a candidate designed to last, but to be a rejection of Trump; second, that they are aware that their pet system, liberal democracy, is heading into full failure mode and therefore, will soon be replaced unless they seize power. When Trump calls this an attempted coup, he is not kidding, nor is Sidney Powell joking around about the connections to China and world Communist representatives in Venezuela. The Left made a desperate gamble because they know that history is turning away from them.
Even more, they signaled this gamble in advance by doing it several times before.
Even more, it is clear to the world that the election was stolen. Any time the counting stops, and suddenly millions of votes appear at three in the morning, an election was stolen. Any time the media vigorously denies the possibility without investigating, a coup is underway. Any time all of the public voices which depend on government and media are saying the same thing, the election was stolen.
A great number of people got very rich under the consumerist regime — high taxes, free money from government, plus regulations which favor large bloated corporations cranking out garbage products — and they do not want to see it end. They want to keep their money and power. If they have to ally with organized crime, the Clinton-Obama political machine, unions, and China to do this, they are entirely fine with that. In fact, they like having a vast conspiracy, because that way they think they will win. These people operate by manipulating public opinion, so in their view having more people around means greater chances of victory.
All of the people denying this election theft have one thing in common: they will lose social status, money, and power if Trump is able to remake America in his image, or rather, aim for the pre-1861 type of America that actually worked. In the same way, these people mounted a fanatical opposition to Brexit, using all of the celebrities and experts they could rope in to their crusade.
If we have learned anything from history, it is that civilization hits a sweet spot where it does very little for its citizens, then goes overboard as sob stories, complaints, and fears pile up. Then it becomes paternalistic, meaning that it provides for its citizens, at which point they blame it for all of their problems and eventually, take over and turn it into 100% a babysitter, at which point it turns to tyranny.
Your average voter, if given the choice, will choose “Communist Libertarianism” at all times: they can make lots of money if they get lucky, but otherwise, there is always a free living from government to keep them not just afloat but comfortable. They want the benefits of civilization without the need to contribute.
This arises from the tendency of humans to treat civilization like another human being. They bargain with it. They bully it. Maybe they try to deceive it. Most of all, they see it in a parental role. What explanation will Dad buy for the dented bumper? What can we say to make Mommy give us more candy? In this way, society both infantilizes and domesticates us in proportion to what it provides for us, through our responses to it.
Our civilization has gone down this path for too long. Now we are bankrupt and in debt, not reproducing and not existentially happy, divided and hating each other, and living in a technocratic dystopia where everyone lives to work, pay taxes, and buy stuff, but all the organic parts of life — experience, soul, love, family, adventure — have been sterilized, adulterated, preservative-injected, standardized, centralized, bureaucratized, and otherwise made both harmless and meaningless.
As predicted last night, Donald Trump has refiled the legal challenges to election-theft 2020:
“We move immediately, seamlessly, to plan B, which is to bring lawsuits now in each one of the states. We had them ready. They’re just a version of the one that was brought in the Supreme Court. So last night, the president made the decision,” Rudy Giuliani said during an appearance on “War Room: Pandemic.”
Texas filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court against Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Michigan, alleging the elections there were run contrary to the Constitution. The nation’s top court rejected the suit late Friday.
Trump’s team is going to file suits or has already filed in the four states as well as Arizona and Nevada. The suits will incorporate allegations in the complaint filed by Texas.
His team wants to make sure that they leave no stone unturned and no option unexplored, realizing that most of them will fail — until one does not.
As I have said before, the Democrats are dead men walking on this because they are in the worst position, namely one where if they succeed, they fail. Meaning that if they seize the White House, set up Biden-Harris-China on the throne, and move forward, they create an illegitimate government. Despite what the rest of the world says, they will do something different, namely treat it like a banana republic that has nuclear weapons.
China wants this, of course, so it can take our place as a superpower. However, China is incompetent, so the lack of a reigning superpower will kick off global conflict. Biden will handle WW3 like Obama handled foreign policy, mainly by pretending to be approving of everyone but then suddenly bullying them — this is the hallmark of the narcissist, and both Obama and Biden are narcissists; in fact, all Leftists are or become them after adopting Leftism — which will cause situations like Gulf War I: Hussein is led to believe he can invade Kuwait, then suddenly the USA freaks out and attacks. Except this time, it will be among multiple powers, some of whom have ICBMs and nuclear warheads.
A Biden presidency could result in world war, but will result in world economic collapse as hundreds of trillions of dollars previously made gold by their status in the US become worth a lot less. Instability always breed conflict and loss. Even more, Biden still has to face the civil suits and criminal suits arising from this election fraud; Biden believes that he must win this election so that he controls the DOJ, but there are thousands of jurisdictions which could bring charges against him, not to mention civil suits against him, the DNC, Dominion, and China, some of which will win, and it only takes a few to bankrupt those organizations.
As said before, the Trump team will attack in three layers — procedural, constitutional, and criminal — with some overlap between the first two owing to the jurisdictional issues involved. This means that Trump will follow a basic plan:
First we should ask why the Court punted on the Texas suit. The answer is that SCOTUS wanted a different suit that was closer to Bush v. Gore, since it has fears of giving the states too much power over each other; this is nonsense, but the court did not want to be seen as politicized, especially with its new members appointed by Trump being under scrutiny. They got bullied, in other words. Texas obviously has an interest in the election being fair, since Texas is also ruled by the president, and if that president is chosen by fraudulent means, Texas is being dominated by other states, unfairly. However, the Court was not thinking about that, but how the decision could be expanded to become a state-versus-state version of the Fourteenth Amendment — you now see why this one has to be replaced by something clearer saying “be fair, taking into account the unequal status of all participants by nature of who they are” even though that would abolish Obergefell v. Hodges — where Texas says, basically, the some other state is not doing things to Texas standards, so they must adhere. That would come into conflict with some other amendments, so the Court had reason to doubt, and when it can avoid a complex matter, it does. It basically sent back a little note telling Trump how to refile his case so that it would not clash, eliminating objections from the Left; this is an exercise in compromise, but also in avoiding making overly-broad decisions which will be misapplied at lower levels. Summary: SCOTUS punted on a procedural matter, asking for the suit to be refiled. This is being done. My cynical side says that the Court wanted to keep Leftists from burning down America over the weekend, since lots of buildings will be empty.
Next we are going to compare two things, Bush v. Gore opinion and Trump’s “Most important speech I have ever made”. You will see how Trump is outlining for the Court how this case falls under the Bush v. Gore fact pattern — the set of conditions that establish the need for legal intervention — and rule, or the conclusions the Court made in the past about applying the law.
Having once granted the right to vote on equal terms, the State may not, by later arbitrary and disparate treatment, value one person’s vote over that of another.
In Fayette County, Pennsylvania, multiple voters received ballots that were already filled out. They didn’t know what happened. In Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, a poll watcher, overheard unregistered voters being told to return later to try to vote under a different name. Tens of thousands of voters across Pennsylvania were treated differently based on whether they were Republicans, or Democrats.
The recount mechanisms implemented in response to the decisions of the Florida Supreme Court do not satisfy the minimum requirement for non-arbitrary treatment of voters necessary to secure the fundamental right. Florida’s basic command for the count of legally cast votes is to consider the “intent of the voter.” Gore v. Harris, ___ So. 2d, at ___ (slip op., at 39). This is unobjectionable as an abstract proposition and a starting principle. The problem inheres in the absence of specific standards to ensure its equal application. The formulation of uniform rules to determine intent based on these recurring circumstances is practicable and, we conclude, necessary.
Voters who submitted floored ballots in some Democrat precincts were notified and asked to fix their ballots, while Republican precincts, and in particular Republican voters, were not so notified which plainly violates the Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution.”If you are a Democrat, we’re going to fix up your ballot. make sure it’s perfect. If you are Republican, don’t even talk about it.”
A monitor in Miami-Dade County testified at trial that he observed that three members of the county canvassing board applied different standards in defining a legal vote. 3 Tr. 497, 499 (Dec. 3, 2000). And testimony at trial also revealed that at least one county changed its evaluative standards during the counting process.
In Clark County, Nevada, where most of the state’s voters reside, the standards for matching a signature using the signature verification machine were intentionally lowered to allow large numbers of ballots to be counted that otherwise would never have passed muster. This machine was set at the lowest level.
Yet each of the counties used varying standards to determine what was a legal vote. Broward County used a more forgiving standard than Palm Beach County, and uncovered almost three times as many new votes, a result markedly disproportionate to the difference in population between the counties.
According to one report, in order to test the process, nine voters in Clark County cast ballots with intentionally incorrect signatures, and eight of the nine ballots were accepted and counted. They said you could sign your name as Santa Claus, and it would be accepted. Last week, the Clark County Commission threw out the results of a local election after the registrar reported finding, quote, “discrepancies that we can’t explain.”
In addition to these difficulties the actual process by which the votes were to be counted under the Florida Supreme Court’s decision raises further concerns. That order did not specify who would recount the ballots. The county canvassing boards were forced to pull together ad hoc teams comprised of judges from various Circuits who had no previous training in handling and interpreting ballots. Furthermore, while others were permitted to observe, they were prohibited from objecting during the recount.
In Pennsylvania, large amounts of mail-in and absentee ballots were processed illegally. And in secret, in Philadelphia, in Allegheny counties, without our observers present. They were not allowed to be present. In fact, they weren’t even allowed in the same room. They were thrown out of the building and they looked from outside in, but they had no way of even seeing, because there were no windows. And the windows that were there were boarded up.
Keep in mind the point of the opinion:
On November 27, Vice President Gore, pursuant to Florida’s contest provisions, filed a complaint in Leon County Circuit Court contesting the certification. Fla. Stat. §102.168 (2000). He sought relief pursuant to §102.168(3)(c), which provides that “[r]eceipt of a number of illegal votes or rejection of a number of legal votes sufficient to change or place in doubt the result of the election” shall be grounds for a contest.
Bush sued under State law, and the court took this up, interpreting it through Constitutional principle. Consequently, SCOTUS found that certain ballots must be counted, but by the same act, that illegal votes should not be counted:
As to Miami-Dade County, the Court concluded that although the 168 votes identified were the result of a partial recount, they were “legal votes [that] could change the outcome of the election.” Id., at (slip op., at 34). The Supreme Court therefore directed the Circuit Court to include those totals in the certified results, subject to resolution of the actual vote total from the Miami-Dade partial recount.
You can see why Trump has gone full-ahead with this opinion: it set up the rule for American elections in order to avoid a disaster like the year 2000, where thirty-five days passed between the vote and Bush being declared winner.
Once he manages to get this case before the courts, probably under state law, after a state court does something illegal to ignore the data presented, then this can go to SCOTUS, and then they can rule without fear of making overly-broad precedent.
People wonder why I am so confident about Trump. Simple: the Left loses if it wins, because America goes into a tailspin and that kicks off more serious acts; Trump has numerous legal avenues, all of which have potential; history favors a transition from Obama-style civilization more toward Trump-style, which coincidentally mirrors what the Constitution mandated.
It is always possible that the coup is too far advanced, and that with two-thirds of everyone having been corrupted or bought by China, America will steamroll Trump and go ahead into oblivion. However, this will create a power vacuum, destroy American power and wealth, kick off a global recession, and since those most likely lead to world wars, start a new world war. Biden would kill hundreds of millions for his vainglorious need to steal the presidency.
Society makes narcissistic bugmen in the proportion that it takes over from nature in terms of how it manages the lives of its citizens. We now have a lot of arrogant, solipsistic bugpeople who want to steal this election because they hate that Trump has made them obsolete, and therefore threatens to end the scam by which they enjoy jobs from which they cannot be fired, kickbacks, and other forms of corruption. Narcissistic bugmen are the ones who make the baby pick up the gun, look down the barrel, and squeeze the trigger.
These people display Dunning-Kruger overconfidence despite being incompetent. Their moral pretense allows them to play the victim and the altruistic savior so frequently that they believe their own manipulations, and consequently are blind to the dangerous game that they are playing.
In my view, this election will pass to Trump, who will go on to four more glorious years of removing ingrates — empowered now by the data he trapped during this election with help from military intelligence and law enforcement personnel under Rudy Giuliani — and those who support them. This will lead to a stripped-down, non-ideological American government.
By reversing mass immigration, regulations, and taxes/entitlements, he will restore economic prosperity at the same time he increases military health and readiness, making America the leader that the world needs it to be. He will improve the American brand radically, and production will shift to America, aided by the absence of unions because their leaders will be in jail, and the absence of bureaucrats because they will be unemployed, in jail, or both.
As with all things Trump, he never shows his hand until it is time. Right now, our job is to watch and wait, and keep the pressure on America to not become a third-world kleptocracy by certifying a fraudulent election engineered by Communists in China and walking among us. We can save that baby, and rise above all of humanity before us by beginning the process of salvaging civilization.
