The blame Trump game.

 The Sunday Sept 20th Detroit Free Press carried an editorial smearing President Trump blaming him for doing nothing about the virus early on. It starts:

"Donald Trump's election was a tragedy whose cost Americans have scarcely begun to reckon. It's most conspicuous casualties are the disproportionate number American lives extinguished by a pandemic that raged unchecked for months while the president shrugged off, mocked and occasionally obstructed the medical community's urgent efforts to contain it."

This of course is a wild rewrite of what actually happened. Trump did play down the importance of the virus at first because that is what he was advised to do by government so-called 'experts' Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx. Dr Fauci actually said masks were not necessary then later said they were. But the Free Press won't mention that because it might interfere with their desire to blame Trump. The editorial continues:

"Continuing to pay the price of Trump's negligence are the tens of millions of U.S. workers still languishing in unemployment, even as their counterparts in other developed countries - countries whose leaders recognized the the pandemic's seriousness and acted promptly to curtail the spread--return to work, and secure incomes."

The actual negligence was the CDC's regulation forbidding all the labs and diagnostic clinics that were begging the CDC to let them make testing kits, from doing so. The CDC insisted on forcing the nation to use its--the CDC's--kits. In another failure of the Freep's god--the government--those kits were flawed. They didn't work. Americans-like the ones the Freep pretends to care about--died. Obviously their lives are not as important as getting rid of Trump. 

Lastly, it wasn't the virus that caused those 'tens of millions of U.S. workers still languishing in unemployment.' It was the states' governments irrational exuberance to use initiatory force against their own citizens by shutting down everyone's livelihood over a virus that 99.7% of those who get it will survive it. 

It is the lust to use legalized force against their own citizens as a means of solving social problems that has infected the Democrat Party and the mainstream media. And they get it from the professors in our college departments of social sciences which is why it should be everyone's goal to get government out of education.

Defund the Police?

 The Antifa and BLM rioters have been calling for de-funding the police across the nation with a lot of support from the Democrat Party and the mainstream media (MSM). But what would that mean? To find out we have to take a more fundamental look at the concept of 'police.'

In my view, the American policeman is an enforcer and what he enforces is the laws of the U.S. Constitution as determined by the judicial branch. All those laws are supposed to  be based on our founding principle of inalienable individual right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

But how many police men and women will continue to work for less or no money? My guess is next to none. So if there is no one protecting our rights, then in fact, we will not have any such rights. How can we have a right to anything, like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,  if it isn't going to be enforced? We can't and won't.

But there will be order of some kind. There has to be in any human group activity. As soon as these Democrat governors and mayors discover that their anti-violence social workers cannot persuade thugs not to bash in their skulls with a tire iron, they will see a need for brute force enforcers.

Here we need to make a critical distinction in the kind of force used. The American policeman was supposed to be charged with the retaliatory use of force only and to be used on behalf of victims against their aggressors. 

But the new enforcers will have the power to use initiatory force--the starting of the use of force--to exact obedience to the governors' and mayors' notions of governance. Those notions will not include your right to life or anything else. Our Constitution will have been nullified when its enforcers were laid off (de-funded).

What will that future look like? I can only surmise it will be some version of the New World Order as determined by the United Nations and other globalists seeking a one world dictatorship. The Democrat Party is dying to make it happen. They see themselves as major commanders of that dictatorship. 

You see, the United States has the most powerful military on the planet. And the most productive/wealthiest economy. It is not unreasonable to conclude that many of today's Democrats lust for control of this future dictatorship.

History shows us that the bloodiest dictatorships of the last century, to retain power, had to reduce their  populations to a manageable number.  It's been estimated Soviet Russia starved and executed up to 20/30 million of its own citizens. Mao's Red China estimated to have starved up to 60 million of theirs.

If you think today's Democrat Party is not capable of this kid of behavior, well, look at the nonchalant, devil-may-care attitude of Democrat governors and mayors towards the wanton destruction of the lives and livelihoods and futures of their own citizens at the hands of terrorist groups like Antifa and BLM etc.

A global New World Order is the ultimate goal. But for now the goal of the America haters is to nullify the Constitution. Getting rid of its enforcers is the chosen method for now. We can't let that happen.
