Never Forgive, Never Forget.

Two years ago today, the FBI/DOJ/Deep State theft of the 2020 election was cemented by a "riot" staged by the aforementioned, which they labeled as an "insurrection." In fact, the insurrection that they themselves carried out did result in the overthrow of the last vestige of America as founded, such as it was.

Well known pundit and commentator Benjamin Braddock honored me by writing the foreword to my book The End of America: 100 Days That Shook the World..

I will link a few excerpts here and post the entire thing over at Cut Jib Newsletter. (click here) Whatever the future has in store for us, the greatest crime in American history -- the final overthrow of the nation -- cannot ever be forgotten or forgiven. And somehow, some way, it must be avenged.

Back at home, later that night [Election Night 2020], I'm brushing my teeth and my phone buzzes, I pick up and hear on the other end, 'Hey this is Rudy Giuliani, I'm here with Sidney Powell. . . " I spit out the toothpaste and stand there for a few seconds having a flashback to the aftermath of 9/11.

From then until January 6th I had held out some hope that the wrong would be righted. But the first mistake of Trump's administration would come back to haunt him as it had so many times during those four years. You're only as strong as the people you surround yourself with, and Trump was surrounded by spineless lizard people, deluded midwits, and outright traitors. He was fond of quoting a poem, The Snake. If only he had took it to heart. As the snake says to the women he bit after she brought him into her house, saving him from the cold, "You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in." Such goes for the long line of snakes Trump brought into the White House: Henry McMaster, Reince Priebus, Gina Haspel, Mike Kelly, James Mattis, John Bolton, Rex Tillerson, Mike Pompeo, Mark Meadows . . . the list goes on. . .

. . .January 6. An enormous crowd of Americans stood on the ellipse in front of the White House. The President was late. Pence had just told him that he would not use his power to reject votes from the states where the fraud occurred. When he finally got up he gave a rambling diatribe. Meanwhile, during the speech Pence had released a letter explaining that he was caving. Folks in the crowd started seeing the news on their phones. Some began to head for the Capitol to protest. Before they could get there, a vanguard of agent provocateurs had already began to smash their way in. By the time most of the regular Trump supporters had arrived, the Capitol Police were welcoming people in as if it was a normal day of visits by tourists. Most of the people behaved as if they were on an unguided tour. Who can forget the photo of the sweet old granny with her little American flag, looking around in awe at the magnificent building?

It was a trap. But one that was only partially successful. Trump posted a video to his social media accounts urging people to “go home in peace”. The crowd began to thin and leave. Most of the people who came to DC for the rally had not even been in the vicinity of the Capitol. Most who did treated it as a lark. There was no insurrection. An actual insurrection would have involved heads on pikes and a new revolutionary government established on the spot. The only tragedy that occurred was the murder of Ashli Babbit, an American patriot and veteran who did not endanger anyone. She merely climbed through a window. It was a simulation. But as a simulation it did have enormous power, because it showed that the mechanics of American government are also a simulation. “They have desecrated the Sacred Temple of Democracy” the donkeys brayed. No, the sacred temple was turned into a cheap whorehouse long ago. To desecrate implies that there was something sacred. All modern experience tells us otherwise. Unless your idea of holiness involves bailing out Wall St’s reckless gambles with money you extract from the sweat of decent Americans, or approving NIH budgets which are then used to manufacture chimeric bioweapons that kill more of your own people than all foreign wars combined.

It was Trump’s admonishment to go home in peace that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Twitter and Facebook took down the video and locked Trump’s accounts. That’s right, after years of shitposting and threatening to annihilate entire countries, the President of the United States was kicked off the internet for telling people to go home in peace. Why? Because going home peacefully before nightfall was never part of the plan. The FBI had something far more bloody in mind. As night fell on the capitol, the black bloc paramilitary shock troops were to be deployed. The end of the siege would be Carthaginian in its destruction, which would then give license to a broad-spectrum crackdown. As bad as it all was, Trump’s last move as President blunted their plans to an extent. So they had to silence him.

This was the moment I knew that the last traces of the ancien regime in America was truly dead and buried. The first step of any successful coup is to seize control of the leader’s communications. In a rapid and coordinated succession of announcements, all social media platforms disabled his ability to communicate to the American people. Even Pinterest banned him. It all was shockingly anticlimactic, almost boring in its execution. “This is the way the world ends, not with a bang, but a whimper.” - T.S. Eliot . . .

. . . we are now living under a much different and dystopian system than before, and we must act accordingly. As I write this, over half a year since Jan. 6th, political prisoners continue to be tortured in the DC Lubyanka. Our system is not unlike that of the Soviet Union. As a friend of mine observed, “America spent 50 years fighting the Soviet Union just to become a gay and retarded version of it.”

Which has been a problem for the narrative pushers. They wanted some excitement. Some Hollywood-style pop and sizzle, not boring old drop and fizzle.

They've tried with the Jan. 6 committee. It hasn't worked. Their takeover was already done. They did the final job fairly well and that was it. The high drama will have to be found elsewhere, because the final stage of the coup was executed with the efficiency of a fine watch.

And then the people who liked what happened but weren't there.
And then the people who were neutral about the whole affair.
Then the people who didn't cheer at the aftermath of oppression.
Then the people who didn't leap to their feet and punch the sky in celebration when Ashli Babbit was murdered.

I think it was the plan, but based on speculation. They believed their own propaganda about the heavily-armed MAGA warriors ready to deliver their god-king to a throne of blood. They would crush those warriors with extreme prejudice and persecute the fellow travelers.

It should be noted, Derek Chauvin and the others were prosecuted, not because they violated the law, but because the prosecutors feared what would happen if they didn't.

A formula that has been repeated over and over in various jurisdictions. As long as the government doesn't fear you, you will not get "justice.". Which of course isn't really how justice works, but here we are.

has anyone read Malice's new "The White Pill"?


It looks to be a book about optimism in a time of universal deceit and oppression. This is a bit off for him although not too much. I know he's trying to speak to a lot of younger guys and they probably need that now. But has anyone read any of it yet?

83 What still amazes me is that, nearly overnight, we lost the country. It was taken, right before our very eyes. And nobody did anything about it. From the usurpers, not a shot fired (except for Babbitt), not a massive protest to say no to these monsters, nothing. Life just went on. It all looks the same. We're still going through our day to day activities. But the whole thing has changed, been stolen right out from underneath every normal American. Boy, it sure was easy for them.

87 wash post june 16 2020:

During the first week of arrests when the majority of charges were filed, Michael R. Sherwin, acting U.S. attorney for the District, said his office ultimately chose to not pursue rioting charges and instead focused on counts involving assault, property damage or burglary, where prosecutors felt the evidence was clear.

"I did not authorize any of those individuals to be charged with rioting. I think that's a very gray area, a very dangerous area that bleeds into protesting, and what is First Amendment [protected] and what is not," Sherwin said in a June 5 statement to The Washington Post.

I'll be shocked if mine divorced.

Their motto is "can't live with each other, can't live without each other."

Heard that from when I was a kid, though I'd pray for divorce.

I told my spouse, with our current house of 7, I'm now shopping like a European. I hit a shop for all the loss leaders, which now also have limits, and any red tag sales, and I move on. 2 days later, I do the next shop. In between, I hit Target on my walks to see if they are clearancing any protein, which just started last month - I guess no one could afford full price, and the store manager finally decided to clearance day of meat vs tossing it...which works for me, b/c I only buy what my spouse can carry home (which is usually all that's there)...

People care, they just won't try to fix anything because the deck is stacked and they all know it. "Keep your head down and try to survive" is more compelling at the moment than "stick your neck out and have some deep state blow your head off or throw you in a gulag." Everything is broken but most people are still okay, for some values of okay. and so long as most people have something to lose, it will continue this way.

I can't stand using the metric system for just that reason! They have been able to chip, chip, chip away at volume by using the metric system! Bring back ounces and quarts and gallons and shoppers will realize how they are being gypped every dang day. Raise the price, put LESS of it in the package and voila! Instant profit increase!. The only one who suffers is the consumer.

And about that 14 percent inflation on food this year? Keep going. 14 percent would have been a walk in the park. We have seen prices more than double and everyone knows it, nobody seems to care...except Cardi B.

Like, today, Target sold me antibiotic free 92/8 ground beef for $3.95/lb - so it's spaghetti bolognese with tons of leftover from the week sauteed veg in a jarred sauce.

Tomorrow, I'll hit Safeway for their $2.99 cherries (3lbs), strawberries and blueberries for $2.99 (limit 1 each), and $2.99 bag of clementines. And probably their 99 cent bag of shredded cheese and bottle apple juice (both limit 1) b/c I can make "hot apple cider" with the latter...I have to check the ad if there's anything more to add.

I have to credit them for not getting violent with each other. AFAIK, he never hit her. She never had bruises that I couldn't acount for (she bruised easily, and when she fainted and my brother tried to wake her up, the slaps left nasty bruises). But she used one of my brothers as her little spy and came up with "creative" punishments that would surely be seen as odd and degrading.

Huh, we still have half gallon things of ice cream - even full gallons of the cheap stuff. But there's also a lot of dairies around here. I love ice cream, but it doesn't love me so I need to do in small doses.

When I was little, I had terrible allergies and my parents told me that yogurt was ice cream. Finding out what actual ice cream was was more of a blow than finding out Santa was fake.

259 I'm resistant to the idea that the CIA and FBI or both or more planned the riot but my resistance is getting weaker. I thought it *possible* that Biden won in 2020 but now I think it *probable* that he didn't. In any case, every action, every word taken by his admin and Dems in general is clearly tuned to increase doubt rather than increase trust. I have to consider that someone thought power could be gained by making people trust government LESS and then vilify them for it.

Jan 6th was a cringeworthy riot, in spots, here and there, and clearly we condemn rioting. I resist thinking that it was engineered and planned by the FBI or the Democrats. Riots happen. People were upset and treated such to make them more upset. But the aftermath is/was such an obvious psy-op that I don't know what to think. The drama, theatrics, the howling and chest beating, the big ugly fence that horrified us all, the National Guard called in to look scary after everyone had gone home, and then the icing on that cake, the Jan 6th committee acting as if an aimless, directionless, and almost entirely peaceful parade around the inside of the Capitol Building was an INSURRECTION. And people buy it?

Yep. Apparently there is speculation that there were quite a few Ukrainians doing the incitement. Which is fascinating when you think about the world events and their own color revolution.

304 292 271 Mom wanted a little girl badly. She finally got one, but dressed all us kids as girls from time to time. Very degrading. I sometimes joke with my brothers and sister that we should've said, "Mom, this dress feels really, really good! Can I go to school wearing it?" LOL
Posted by: jim (in Kalifornia) at January 06, 2023 03:22 PM (ynpvh)

That's severely fucked up. My mother hated me for being male - probably just hated me for being, period - but never dressed me in girl's clothing. Lots of screaming and hitting though. But no cross dressing.

One time, as punishment, she made one brother lick the other's sweaty back. We joke that when he was made to do it, he should have said, "Mmm...this is strangely good. Mom, may I take another lick?"

And I am pretty sure I read that the arrest was because there is a law about this specific to abortion clinics. Not just about doing this in general outside any place of business or anything, but abortion clinics specifically.

They go to every length to protect their death cult ritual. And now they are doing similar to protect their child sexualization and child castration rituals. The Left is ridiculously sick and evil.

2 And we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of our gathering together unto him:That you be not easily moved from your sense, nor be terrified, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by epistle, as sent from us, as if the day of the Lord were at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means, for UNLESS THERE COME A REVOLT FIRST, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, Who opposeth, and is lifted up above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God.

(So maybe we had/have a chance to avoid it.)

Remember you not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way. And then that wicked one shall be revealed whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth; and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming ...

I even got a $5/week allowance during the early 80's and when I got wasted on a school field trip back from NYC, my father basically said he hoped I learned my lesson.

454 >>My dad refused to believe I was actually hurt once. 48 hours later when I wouldn't shut up about it, he took me for x-rays. I had broken bones.

My folks came to one of my football games when I was in high school. We were playing an away game and given permission to ride how with our folks if we wanted. I wasn't going to but clearly broke my hand during the game so I decided to go with them so they could take my to the hospital.

My dad bitched the entire ride to the hospital he was going to have to spend Saturday evening at the hospital when a little dirt was all that was necessary. He was joking but he didn't stop razzing me for weeks. "How's your boo boo, Nancy?"

455 My father had a sense of humor that pushed me to develop a thick skin.

Imagine being about 8 years old, getting your first buzz cut in the summer, coming home and your father's first reaction is to rush into the kitchen, grab a cantaloupe, draw a face on it, hold it up to my head and ask, "Which is the cantaloupe?"

My Mom was an old-school nurse. She took debriding wounds very seriously. I would have preferred risking infection and/or amputation. Much less painful.

Posted by: Heavy Meta at January 06, 2023 04:02 PM (gryET)

459 My mom was very squeamish medicine and pain wise. Once on a canoe trip I accidentally jammed a tree limb into my leg. I thought I fished most of it out with a pocket knife but about four months later swelling from infection caused the rest of it to pop out the other side of my leg. I cleaned up the pieces of the wood to show my mom because I thought it was neet. She did not think it was neet.

460 Judges across the country keep asking where is the evidence of vote fraud? Election deniers lawyers say why do you ask for evidence and just believe that there was fraud like the morons at ace. By the way the election was taken from trump ;but by republican legislators trying to keep the libertarian party off the ballot that democrats used to keep green party off ballot so they couldn't take votes away from biden.

It's truly terrifying if you know what Solzhenitsyn went through. And I keep remembering his telling of his initial arrest. He had no idea why he was being arrested or what he had done wrong. If they wanted you, they arrested you on whatever made up sh*t they conjured up. In his case, I think they discovered a private letter of his where he wrote -- privately -- to someone and was mildly critical of something he wasn't allowed to be critical of.

465 I'm frankly amazed by all these stories! Italian parents are just ... over-coddling maybe mostly? overprotective? and they treat boy children like little gods and we girls do a lot of work. that's about the only thing I could possibly complain about but honestly ..!

if we got hurt it was a massive deal lol. even a scratch. that said when the whole family got together the fighting (among adults!) was EPIC. there was one time I believe shots were fired lol. but everyone was hugging a moment later! so, crazy but loving, overemotional and smothering. I guess that's bad but I kind of enjoy it.

496 thanks for posting this. I guess, like many, I thought that we had a US that was pretty much normal with some exceptions, up until covid and the 2020 election. The fact it was stolen in front of our eyes with nary a peep was just shocking to me and the fact that calls, letters, emails and large in person gatherings meant nothing to our elected leaders, who were all apparently in on it, meant nothing. Not sure what happens next because we are all censored so no one can reach out to anyone who thinks the same way. I weep for my daughters, who have to deal with this "new normal" which is more soviet then america as founded

497 Prediction:

None of what you insist on will happen. Elections will continue to happen. A hundred years from now, there will still be a government in Washington DC, which will still have authority over most of the North American continent, and most of the people on that continent will still be participating in elections in one way or another. The 2022 election will be about as controversial and illegitimate as the 1888 election, and will have ended continuity of government to the exact same extent.

You are on the same level as the Palmarian Catholic Church.
