Long Read of a Monday: The Grand Illusion

[Found at TwelveRound]


The federal government is illegitimate. I can unwind that all you want, but it’s a fact. It’s a fact to such an extent that they have put up a twelve-foot-high fence around the capitol with razor wire crowning the structure. They’ve posted twenty-thousand troops near at hand in case too many of us figure it out. They are afraid of us and they should be. If I had defied the will of the people and installed a mentally deficient old man instead of the people’s choice, I’d be worried about the anger of the American people, too.

This country is coasting on an illusion. There is no federal government, or state governments at this stage, except for the original thirteen, who were not created by the Constitution. The states might maintain their borders and government to the degree that the people of that state agree to play nice. All federal laws, however, are moot. Most state laws that were required to replicate the federal laws likewise are moot, except to the extent that those state governments agree to maintain them.

This is all very simple. There was election fraud. The discussion is over. Between Mike Lindell’s documentary, released videos of illegal activity, thousands upon thousands of eye witness testimony backed up by affidavits to that effect, the 22 court cases where Trump prevailed and the Time Magazine article that admitted how it was done, at least on the public perception and media manipulation side of the ledger. The science is SETTLED on election fraud.

They don’t want you to talk about election fraud, because that is the one topic that most can agree on and it is the one that literally pulls the nation apart. Most people haven’t done the deep dive, yet. They know there was fraud and expected the government officials to live up to their oaths and do their duty, but they all abdicated. Why? Because they all know instinctively that to recognize it is to dissolve the government.

All of those sitting in congress right now know the gig is up. They remain, because if they can stay there long enough, project authority without having it, they can obtain it just the same. This is why they all talk about preserving “democracy” by taking their position. It is their justification for keeping everyone quiet about what we all saw take place. The question is: whose “democracy?” Certainly, not the people’s republic…..

    Yes. Read and absorb. No TV, newspapers, social media, smart phones, etc. allowed anymore. Outside the box reasoning only, or certain death looms at the hands of demoncrats/communists on the lurk.

    Who, Vanderleun, wrote the lament in pink?
    Tocqueville–It is, above all, in the details that we risk enslaving men. Freedom in the big things of life is less important than in the slightest.

  • Lance de Boyle February 15, 2021, 4:34 PM

    The pink is from here……


    de Tocqueville. Democracy in America. Vol II.

    Chapter VI: What Sort Of Despotism Democratic Nations Have To Fear
    But it would seem that if despotism were to be established amongst the
    democratic nations of our days, it might assume a different character;
    it would be more extensive and more mild; it would degrade men without
    tormenting them. I do not question, that in an age of instruction
    and equality like our own, sovereigns might more easily succeed in
    collecting all political power into their own hands, and might interfere
    more habitually and decidedly within the circle of private interests,
    than any sovereign of antiquity could ever do. But this same principle
    of equality which facilitates despotism, tempers its rigor. We have seen
    how the manners of society become more humane and gentle in proportion
    as men become more equal and alike. When no member of the community has
    much power or much wealth, tyranny is, as it were, without opportunities
    and a field of action. As all fortunes are scanty, the passions of men
    are naturally circumscribed–their imagination limited, their pleasures
    simple. This universal moderation moderates the sovereign himself, and
    checks within certain limits the inordinate extent of his desires.

    I seek to trace the novel features under which despotism may appear
    in the world. The first thing that strikes the observation is
    an innumerable multitude of men all equal and alike, incessantly
    endeavoring to procure the petty and paltry pleasures with which they
    glut their lives. Each of them, living apart, is as a stranger to the
    fate of all the rest–his children and his private friends constitute to
    him the whole of mankind; as for the rest of his fellow-citizens, he is
    close to them, but he sees them not–he touches them, but he feels them
    not; he exists but in himself and for himself alone; and if his kindred
    still remain to him, he may be said at any rate to have lost his
    country. Above this race of men stands an immense and tutelary power,
    which takes upon itself alone to secure their gratifications, and
    to watch over their fate. That power is absolute, minute, regular,
    provident, and mild. It would be like the authority of a parent, if,
    like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it
    seeks on the contrary to keep them in perpetual childhood: it is well
    content that the people should rejoice, provided they think of nothing
    but rejoicing. For their happiness such a government willingly labors,
    but it chooses to be the sole agent and the only arbiter of that
    happiness: it provides for their security, foresees and supplies their
    necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal
    concerns, directs their industry, regulates the descent of property, and
    subdivides their inheritances–what remains, but to spare them all
    the care of thinking and all the trouble of living? Thus it every day
    renders the exercise of the free agency of man less useful and less
    frequent; it circumscribes the will within a narrower range, and
    gradually robs a man of all the uses of himself. The principle of
    equality has prepared men for these things: it has predisposed men to
    endure them, and oftentimes to look on them as benefits.

    After having thus successively taken each member of the community in
    its powerful grasp, and fashioned them at will, the supreme power then
    extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of
    society with a net-work of small complicated rules, minute and uniform,
    through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters
    cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not
    shattered, but softened, bent, and guided: men are seldom forced by it
    to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting: such a power
    does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but
    it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till
    each nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and
    industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd. I have
    always thought that servitude of the regular, quiet, and gentle kind
    which I have just described, might be combined more easily than is
    commonly believed with some of the outward forms of freedom; and that
    it might even establish itself under the wing of the sovereignty of the
    people. Our contemporaries are constantly excited by two conflicting
    passions; they want to be led, and they wish to remain free: as they
    cannot destroy either one or the other of these contrary propensities,
    they strive to satisfy them both at once. They devise a sole, tutelary,
    and all-powerful form of government, but elected by the people. They
    combine the principle of centralization and that of popular sovereignty;
    this gives them a respite; they console themselves for being in tutelage
    by the reflection that they have chosen their own guardians. Every man
    allows himself to be put in leading-strings, because he sees that it is
    not a person or a class of persons, but the people at large that holds
    the end of his chain. By this system the people shake off their state
    of dependence just long enough to select their master, and then relapse
    into it again. A great many persons at the present day are quite
    contented with this sort of compromise between administrative despotism
    and the sovereignty of the people; and they think they have done enough
    for the protection of individual freedom when they have surrendered
    it to the power of the nation at large. This does not satisfy me:
    the nature of him I am to obey signifies less to me than the fact of
    extorted obedience.

    Molon labe, motherfuckers.

    Stop obeying. That’s the gist of this article. Start somewhere. Take off the masks and resume living… just for starters. Here’s a group of unmasked shoppers visiting Traitor Joe’s. Chaos ensues.

    abso-fucking-lootley right.

    I might add that they are defending the fed capitol from BLM/Antifarce right now. They let that genie out and that fukr don’t just go back in by wishing. But, it’s true they are scared of the citizenry.

    Please note that in my lib state the COVID relief money is paying for getting the ‘tards out of jail. BLM, et al., are going to walk away scott free. Oh, and they’re allowed to carry arms in the street. No question.

    I’m not paying strict attention to each and every intolerance coming out of DC right now. I consider everything being done in congress to be an outrage, corrupt and criminal.

    This guy has some hope for us, and what he says often are things I hadn’t thought of. This one describes how that Trump is owning the GOPe at every move, and in a strange way is “president” to 80 million Americans. Anyway, why sit around and wait for a leader? Be a leader yourself. Be The American. OK, the link is:

  • WB February 16, 2021, 7:47 AM

    Just one totally BS claim:
    >>> the 22 court cases where Trump prevailed

    The actual claim by The Epoch Times was originally that “Of the 22 cases that have been heard by the courts and decided on their merits, Trump and Republicans have prevailed in 15,”

    Then they changed it to “Trump and/or the GOP plaintiff prevailed in 15 out of 21 cases decided on the merits” but with a note that “decided on the merits” didn’t mean they won, it meant they “was able to argue the facts of the case, and, if applicable, given opportunity to present evidence via discovery.”

    Furthermore, “The article (and our former and current headlines) clearly indicate that these are lawsuits related to the election, not about the election results,” i.e. most of the lawsuits being referred to weren’t related to possible voter fraud.

    It’s tiresome to go through this for every BS exaggerated claim, but what it comes down to is that even with millions of dollars raised for challenging the election results, the loser’s team couldn’t present any clear evidence of fraud.

    @ Lance

    Thank you for the great de Tocqueville quote. I own both volumes of Democracy in America. Looks like I need to pull them out of the book shelf and re-read.

    One important piece of advice I kept hearing from my father in relation to government was “Resist. Resist. Resist.” It took me some valuable lost time before I fully understood what my father was saying and why.

    Also, there are more gems at the TwelveRound blog site.

    Ahhhhh, what a great feeling- as of yesterday, I finished purging the last few Liberal friends and associates from having any form of acquaintance with me.

    I was a little hesitant to do so at first, but then reflected on how severely Liberals have attacked Conservatives, Trump supporters, Republicans, Caucasians, Red-State-Dwellers, and people of faith.

    All things considered, I’d simply be “responding in kind” to the examples they have set forth.

    One of them, a hard-left female I’ve known for about 2 decades whined, complained, and demanded a reason why.

    I just stated that “I’m distancing myself from RACISTS, and anyone who hates Trump likely hates him because he gave the USA the lowest unemployment rates for blacks and “P.O.C.” folks in USA history- therefore, anyone who hates Trump and Trump supporters is undeniably RACIST.”

    Obviously, they can’t stand a dose of their own medicine.

    WB: bite a turd.

    I suppose math isn’t evidence to you? Sets of numbers where dems vote-totals turned on a dime and every county and precinct had the same percentile uptick, and Trump zeros? Also, the count shut-downs were unprecedented, weren’t they?

    Get bent.

  • Mark Matis February 17, 2021, 5:18 AM

    Merely the way of the tribe as they yearn for the “good old days” of their Messiahs – Lenin and Stalin – who they helped murder FIFTY MILLION across Russia and Eastern Europe. But those do not count since they were mostly only Goyim!!!

  • Dan February 17, 2021, 7:30 AM

    So where are the “80 million” Biden voters?

  • EX-Californian Pete February 17, 2021, 8:51 AM

    Casey, I second your comment to WB.

    Seems that most Libtards are incapable of math, reason, and independent thought.

  • Terry February 17, 2021, 3:45 PM

    Dan, the 80M Biden voters are still contained within the confines of the hard drive cases. Merely images on rotating disks. Fake.

    No one showed up at the fake Biden campaign appearances either. The whole enchilada was a turd in a piece of rice paper.

    The Dems built themselves a guarded enclave which may be their fatal undoing. Trouble is brewing and it is not going to be a cake walk for them. They can survive as cannibals in the tunnels below the DC capitol they have destroyed.

  • SF jeff February 17, 2021, 4:23 PM

    Just the bigs;

    Elections are local and constitutionally so; run by local government employees. Its State law, State prosecutors and State judges all in the same conga line.

    Local governments are under great financial pressure. Local government employees really value their jobs. President Trump was not going to bail them out, but the other guy was. And Trump is an ogre don’t forget.

    The poorly regulated registration system was again flooded with extra ballots.

    I got means, motive and opportunity. But to move past, lets just say the stakeholders adjusted the election.
