    Stanton Evans famously quipped “We have two parties here, and only two. One is the evil party, and the other is the stupid party.” Ever since it has been assumed that the Democrats are the evil party and the Republicans the stupid party. The truth is the parties are neither of those things. It is the voters. People who vote for Democrats are evil, while the people who continue to vote Republican are stupid. Only when enough people smarten up will we be able to address the evil.
    The part that always amazed me was how shallow the whole thing is.
    Basically, a politician, using mere words, cons people into placing him in power over them, to take their money, to take their rights, to take their time, to take just about everything they know of this life.

    Why do they do that, over and over and over again?

    The common answers:
    1 If I don’t vote for A then B will be in charge and that will be worse.
    3 It’s the patriotic thing, you know, our forefathers died so that we can vote.
    4 You gotta! You just gotta!
    5 My parents vote, my neighbors vote, all my relatives and friends vote, I may as well vote too.
    6 I get some time off from my shitty job to vote.
    7 Bubbleheaded bleach blondes vote so they can get that keen little “I Voted” sticker.

    Each passing election elevates newer and more criminal politicians into the fold and things locally, nationally and internationally become exponentially worse because of it and the voters never seem to connect their actions with the results, as if there is a disconnect.

    Each election the politicians lie their asses off, just the hundreds before them, and each year the gullible votists keep falling for it, never learning from their mistakes. Votists got us all to where we are today and votists will keep burning the soles off their hooves pushing the bus off the cliff. Right before your very eyes.

    I have never voted and never will.
    I do not have the right to do that to you and everybody else.
    gov’t privilege, yes
    right, no
    criminals hire criminals
    are you a criminal?
    I’m not.

    ghostsniper; What I would like to know is who is really behind the curtain.

    The evil party (dems) and the stupid party (GOPe). Very well said. If it weren’t so, then the shit happening in the next linked video never would. BTW this is exactly what I experienced and it’s not unlike a lit fuse on a bomb. The characters in this vid are tossing a grenade back and forth like a game of hot potato.

      Following up on my comment from Monday, I am reading that MTG has filed articles of impeachment on Garland, the AG. Yesterday I saw that she’d done the same thing to Wray, at the FBI. They’ve dubbed this “impeachment week”.

      I thought the reps were supposed to be up in DC passing laws and creating new spending? Instead, this rep is a wrecking crew on a berserker. I kinda like her; I’d like to have her babies.

      More of this. Please.

      I watched a minute. I’ve been trained to identify enemy fast. THOSE are the people you will be forced to shoot in the face at 3am. For the life of me I can’t understand why he stood there and engaged those criminals. By doing so all he can do is lose. Don’t engage them on their terms. Shut it and walk away.

        A fave cowboy movie, Broken Trail, with Robert Duvall herding horse to market from Oregon to I guess it was Wyoming. Duvall and Thomas Haden Church encounter a stranger on a wagon, and Duvall opens fire without hesitation, and his witless nephew starts plugging away like it’s a carnival booth. They fill the unknown character full of lead and set his whole rig on fire. Church says to Duvall, “who did I just shoot and why?”

        This is closer to what is required than arguing with a fed in the open air. The kilt man in the movie was trading smallpox blankets to the Indians, and Duvall saw this truth immediately and took action like an avenging angel from some ancient myth or epic poem from the deep, deep past.

        Talk is shit, and shit talk is more-so. I’m not suggesting that level of violence, but you’ll notice the ATF tried for the last word which was a threat of legal jeopardy. When the ATF threatens you with legal jeopardy, their stock in trade is a raid. You won’t win that, BTW. The only win there is avoidance and fight on a ground of your own choosing. I’m just saying what is obvious and normal tactics. Dear ATF: you threatened the citizen here, not the other way around. Keep your panties on (literally).

    The congressgirl from Georgia be ‘peachin’ in da houtse. I say it that way because it needs some clarification. Once the articles of impeachment are filed (today: Biden’s articles were filed), you can meet in committees of all stripes, from Judicial to janitorial, and yet the thing is resolved by a simple up or down vote in the House. That’s it: vote yes and that SOB is impeached.

    Impeach Biden because when Trump was impeached for Russian Collusion, the whole thing was a heap of BS and now Durham’s Report says this officially. Tit for tat.

    Looking at the news today, if headlines and ink spillage are any indicator, the monumental news of Biden’s vote to be impeached might as well not even be real. Brothers and sisters, what Tucker said is correct: it’s the way the news is edited that counts. Truth don’t enter into it.

    MTG is impeaching every swinging Richard in DC. It’s a bloodbath. It’s what I’ve been begging for. The silence of the media lambs only makes it that much more trenchcoat for me. The revolution will not be televised.

    No one is being convicted in the Senate. Everyone I think knows that.
    But what truths are going to be exposed to the light of day in process?

    Besides I remember that Nancy Pelosi placed great importance to the fact that she had engineered a bogus impeachment of President Trump. First as a badly written Soap Opera, second as a farce.
    Cool, every second of Congresses time they waste in this fashion, the less harm they have time to do.

    • Casey Klahn May 18, 2023, 9:23 PM

      Congress, with impeachment, is the nations highest level kangaroo court. It’s political dungeon.

      It was Yuge News! when they filed for Trump’s two impeachments, Clinton’s, and the threat of such against Nixon. With Biden, the exact same event is nothing in the news. Because: you’re living in 1984, a la Orwell.

      So true, John. I would much rather watch congress do oversight than pass another f*kn law or spending bill. The only thing I’d love more than some long knife oversight would be for a wicked cool congressman to stand in the well, and move for the disbandment of the current body. I want that very badly in my own outlaw state.
