The Morning Report - 9/28/21

schoolpicmaskkid.jpg

Good morning, kids. Tuesday and I suppose I'm not quite finished with yesterday's theme of being akin to Bruce Willis' character in The Sixth Sense -- trying to interact with the world but not realizing you're dead. Not quite the same metaphor as Tom Lea's "The Last Step" but close enough for government work. Pun intended. And this leads me to the part of this gig that I truly hate the most; criticizing someone I actually like and respect for being kind of clueless. Maybe clueless is a bit harsh but considering everything going on, I can't seem to come up with an adjective that's less harsh:

In 2018, conservative Jesse Kelly argued that "our political disagreements have become a powder keg" and we should redraw the map. He wasn't wrong. In fact, things have gotten worse in the three years since, which is why left-leaning comedienne Sarah Silverman recently touted the idea, too.

Fact is, we're at each other's throats over every issue. I admit that after nearly 19 months of looking longingly at the sanity of red states in their response to the pandemic and sadly at my 5-year-old masked and required to be socially distanced from friends during school recess outdoors here in New York, I have myself fantasized about a national divorce.

But it's a fantasy that could never work, even in the short term, much less the long. Say we could bloodlessly divide the states. And, for shorthand, consider a Donald Trump voter as someone opposed to [Chinese] COVID-restriction mania (my own top issue right now), while a Joe Biden voter wants kindergartners to double-mask . . .

. . . It's not just [Chinese] COVID regulations that divide us, of course. There's much more. But the truth is that electorates change, issues of importance change, demographics change.

A Republican today is not the same as a Republican 20 years ago. A conservative who moved to solidly red Colorado in the late '90s would be in for a surprise after it failed to vote for a Republican presidential candidate after 2004.

Kids don't always follow their parents' ideology. Whole counties and states sometimes switch sides in elections and then switch back again. Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin went for Obama in 2012, Trump in 2016, Biden in 2020. Who gets them in the divorce? Would we constantly have to change boundaries? . . .

. . . OK, so if we can't formally separate, what then?

We fight it out -- peacefully. We find like-minded people in our communities and band together to bring changes we want to see. We don't surrender because we're in the minority. Minorities have won before. It wasn't that long ago that a non-Democrat was mayor of New York City and a Republican won the California recall. It's not impossible . . .

. . . We're still a very new country; we continue to grow and evolve. The solution isn't to divide it up so we could be (briefly) better represented. It's to persuade others to our way of thinking -- and voting. And to remember the ideas that forged our national marriage in the first place.

Okay, I take it back. Karol Markowicz makes Pollyanna look like Christopher Hitchens. As an aside her reference to the California recall was about Arnold "screw your freedom" Schwarzenegger in 2003. If you look at his record in Sacramento, it was marginally more Republican than Bill DeBolshevik's. The estimable Lloyd Billingsley puts her some knowledge on that score right here. But I digress.

It is just amazing to me that someone as bright and intelligent as the author, who if I remember correctly was an emigre as a young child from formerly communist Poland, does not recognize that America as founded was overthrown last November, most likely for good. The people that enabled that act have had a multi-generational hate on for this nation, its culture, society and people stretching back over 100 years. They hate "our national marriage" because they hate all of the aforementioned with us at the top of the list. They view us, not as political rivals to be defeated and certainly not as fellow citizens with which to seek compromise and comity. The view us as EVIL; as a cancer that must be eradicated. To not see that, after everything we have gone through since Obama and for sure since the death of that criminal who died while resisting arrest in Minneapolis touched off mass race riots and real insurrection just leaves me gobsmacked. And since Ms. Markowicz is in tune and rightfully angered by the Chinese COVID edicts, it's kind of amazing she seems unaware that those of us, and I assume her included, are viewed as evil plague-carriers whose refusal to cooperate is a threat to all humanity.

I will say this. Ms. Markowicz is correct in her analysis that national divorce and whatever two-state solution arises from it will never work. Just not for the reasons she elucidates. The reason it won't work is Socialism/Leftism/Progressivism, much like Islam, is totalitarian and absolutist. Let's play it out and you'll see why. Let's assume we split up where one half the nation (ignore the geography; it's irrelevant for now) returns to America as founded and the other with Leftists in control. The great Milton Friedman PBUH once quipped "If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there'd be a shortage of sand." See what I mean? Within five years of a national divorce, America would resemble the State of Israel and Blue State Gondwanaland would resemble Cuba. Or worse, Baltimore.

When every Leftist wet dream is enacted into law and it comes crashing down in a heap of massive failure, misery and squalor, the last thing they want their people to see is their neighbors on the other side of that mile-high massive Trump border wall, the ones they claimed were greedy, capitalist, racists living in prosperity and freedom. Such a complete negation of their worldview would be catastrophic. That is why we cannot be allowed to exist away from them. And so, they need to subjugate us or, failing that, exterminate us.

Think I'm being hyperbolic? Look no further than James Hodgkinson, Antifa, Billy Ayers, Robert Reich, the New Yorker, Don Lemon. And those are just off the top of my head. There can be no parlaying with these individuals. And since their sentiments are echoed and even amplified, not just by violent lunatics on the fringe, but the mainstream and even leadership of the American Left and Democrat Party, we are neither voting our way out of this nor engaging in civil discourse with them.

We'll see what happens in 2022 and 2024, IF we actually have elections due to whatever new national emergency that might be dreamed up to cancel them is sprung on us. And with vermin like Stanley McChrystal still slithering around DC, I have no doubt that something is afoot even as we speak.

For my money, the best course of action is at the local level. Get involved there because that is where the rubber meets the road. And with the forcible vaccination mandates, the junta is creating enemies where there were none before. That creates opportunities. With cops, firefighters, nurses, school bus drivers refusing to get the shot or go to work, perhaps a national strike might force not just that issue but a whole host of others. If nothing else it might open the eyes of people that heretofore were blind to the Deep State - now just The State since they are out on the surface and out in the open. That is something that no doubt keeps them up at night, because if we ever were able to organize massively on that level, wow.

OMG, this misses the point of our current situation entirely!!!

We no longer have valid, honest elections. There is no redress! There is no correction! There is no "changing of hearts and minds" to one way of thinking or another. Fraud has dissolved all of that!

And with that fraud comes illegitimate government. Not a government run by the Will of the People. It's a farce!

20 Whole counties and states sometimes switch sides in elections and then switch back again.

Further evidence that elections are not a reflection of the desires of the Productive Class.

Also, the insane criminals that fight like demons to have absolute power and control, once they experience something called "Consequences", I would imagine the world would resume some level of sanity.

It is not the natural yearning of parents to want to take their son, chop his dick off and put him on a lifelong regimen of hormone therapy - that insanity is injected in from demons in positions of power.

Yep, all politics is nothing but religion now. Really probably has been for decades. Need to stop calling it "Political Science" and start calling it what it is, "Political Religion".

Everything politicians sell us - whether on the economy or foreign policy or "healthcare" - is not based on facts or logic, but rather based on "believing" and trusting them on the bullshit they spew. They are evangelists.

27 Here is the problem with a national divorce:

Red states: We won! Time to go back to sleep

Blue States: It is a great start, but there is so much left to be done.

The left won't stop fighting for the red states. The right will stop fighting for the red states. The left will continue to creep into the institutions and ultimately nothing will change.

++++
That's a big reason. A divorce would stave off open warfare for a few years, and it would be complicated further by the fact that there won't be two states. It might start that way, but geography is real. We're going to end up with 4-6, with alliances between them. That will be stable for a time, but it won't hold. The communists will be starving and desperate and the non-communists (likely monarchies or similar, even if not in name) will be nervous and looking for buffers to protect their territories. Someone will strike first and then it all goes up in flames.

It doesn't mean I don't think we should try it, but it will end in war. I think every possible outcome now ends in war, and we face in essence a Morton's Fork. The only thing about which there should be no illusions is the "returning to America as founded." That won't happen.

37 "Abortion supports a materialistic and selfish culture, in which wealth and status are the measure of a life, and relationships are about looking out for number one, rather than mutual love and self-giving."

Its far more lizard brained than that. You have people at the top who love money and love killing people. Every culture has had their leaders who kill for fun and profit.

At the street level, you have a bunch of women who are terrified to live with their consequences of their actions. To them a gestating child is like CoViD, something that needs to be removed from the system and avoided by every mechanism real or imagined other than what works every time.

42 New Yorker Amplifies Calls for Pipeline Bombings to Save the Planet
++++
Ecoterrorists are so stupid and demonstrate every time how the "eco" prefix is merely a paper-thin pretext for what they do. Ecoterrorists are extremely ecologically destructive. Burning cars causes a lot of pollution - more than driving the cars for a long time. Blowing up pipelines releases pollutants without the benefit of scrubbing or chemical transformation - unlike when they are used productively.

If they get their way and end all advanced fuels, man reverts to using wood and coal at small scales, which is appallingly bad for the environment. Just go to rural India - where wood and cow dung, those great "biomass fuels" are prevalent - and enjoy your air quality.

There's nothing "eco" about it. They're just terrorists. Plain and simple.

The situation is worse than just having lost the right to vote our way out of this. Every institution in the United States is now controlled by the Left. Every. single. one. From education at all levels, to media of all types, to government agencies of all types, to sports leagues of all types, to corporations of all types to "entertainment" of all types.

Everything is connected. Government agencies set standards that every business or corporation must follow. Government sets the agendas in schools at every level which indoctrinate Americans from Kindergarten through college. And every media outlet - mainstream and social and tech companies - use their power and influence to propagandize for the Left's issues, smear anyone who tries to present facts against the narrative and then ban or censor those they cannot successfully smear.

99% of people on the right are either oblivious to this or they refuse to acknowledge it. Because to acknowledge it means to realize that we are never going back to normal and there's no peaceful way out of this.

You continue to make the argument for dissolution.

Without going into a book-long argument, the problems you listed are largely urban oriented. The further one removes themselves from these urban institutions, the happier and more well adjusted they become.

The Left can't feed themselves. Once Normals recognize that, the problems tend to go away.

Yes. The subversion is complete - or close enough to complete - that the outcome is no longer in question. The only real question, in my mind, is "what leads to the war that is coming?" I no longer think that the war will *not* come, and wonder only about the trigger. Is it secession? Nullification? Abortive Constitutional Convention? Slow-burn oppression and pushback across a thousand mini-theaters over a span of generations? Foreign invasion when they determine our weakness has metastasized? Who knows.

And don't forget the other part of the partition of India: the mass migrations and deaths, the disconnected regions, and subsequent re-splitting. Bangladesh wasn't there after the partition - they were part of Pakistan until they weren't anymore. The amount of human misery created by the partition of India was incalculable. The Hindus fleeing south and the Muslims fleeing north, and plenty of corpses along the way. It is instructive in another way, too, to your other point. There are still Muslims in India, but essentially no Hindus in Pakistan. The more barbaric faction will finish its purge at all costs.

So if you're in a blue area and a partition of some kind - formal or informal - forms, get the fuck out whatever the risk.

But yet they do. The indoctrination has succeeded quite well. They are now well ruled by their "betters", and will follow any command of those "betters" if properly couched with just the right amount of fear-mongering.

"It can't work in one country, I need the resources of the entire region!"

They will never - and can never - be satisfied. It must be *everything.* There must be nothing, anywhere, however small or meaningless, outside of the system.

The Truth About Food Shortages Is Worse Than They're Admitting

Editor's Commentary: When there was a mad rush for toilet paper and bottled water last year, I lambasted those who were blowing the Covid-19 "crisis" out of proportions. None of it made sense to me as there didn't seem to be a widespread disruption of supplies other than what was artificially being created by inflated consumer demand.
The current shortages we're seeing which go far beyond toilet paper are real. Data we're seeing indicates a convergence of circumstances based mostly on lack of personnel. Supplies are diminishing thanks to a lack of shipping and trucking workers. Distribution is slowing thanks to reduced food production, processing efficiency, and warehouse workers. Grocery stores are getting fewer products and are raising prices as a result....
Below, Michael Snyder reveals an email he received from a grocery industry insider. This should concern us all as we face an economy and supply chain that have been on the verge of imploding for months, if not longer...

For now. The "cult of coronavirus" is temporary, a mere angle on the real thing, which is a Maoist cult of total control. They are one and the same.

But it won't work, not really. It will work to kill off America (it already has), but it won't survive. It is too arbitrary, vague and shifting to be a real religion. It will be supplanted by a real religion. It may be a new one, but I doubt it. My bet is on Islam. Islam as appalling and horrible, but it has real rules and real theology and real practices and they are stable. Combined with its practitioners' raw violence and aggression, it may well come out on top and the Maoists will be vanquished by theocracy. You have the Muslim world on one side - the Middle East through at least all of Europe and likely enclaves in North America - with the communist world in Asia and perhaps major Christian territories in Africa or Latin America.

128 I will say this. Ms. Markowicz is correct in her analysis that national divorce and whatever two-state solution arises from it will never work

I rate this as true. Presuming for a moment the peaceful split gets accomplished and people move to Jesusland or GetYourClotShotiStan to populate the two new countries with only politically aligned people.

When 4 years GetYourClotShotiStan will argue every single problem they have is caused by Jesusland - gun crime, "climate change", hell COVID outbreaks would all be blamed on the Jesuslanders. Now whether this would mean overseas military action (which the left now likes, a lot) or just an economic/political mean girls play with Europe and China isn't as clear. But they would cause problems for us.

All that being said, it would still be a better position then we are now, with our own government being the biggest threat to our freedoms and rights.

Excellent comparison.

Isn't this what Communist nations did in decades past, prior to social media... they censored all news outside of their nations so that their people thought that Communism was the only lifestyle attainable? But once people in Communist nations started finding out about Western culture, they realized they were being lied to.

This is why Communist China still keeps their people in the dark about the outside world and works with Google and all social media companies to only offer China a censored version of the internet and social media apps.

30. The elite have made fortunes during the pandemic. Since the beginning of lockdown the wealthiest people have become significantly wealthier. Forbes reported that 40 new billionaires have been created "fighting the coronavirus", with 9 of them being vaccine manufacturers.

Business Insider reported that "billionaires saw their net worth increase by half a trillion dollars" by October 2020.

Clearly that number will be even bigger by now.

Kashmir is an important three-way buffer. It is valuable and important to India and Pakistan primarily, but China is a factor, too, for both. China isn't worried about invasion from India or Pakistan, but they have to worry about China. Kashmir is the chokepoint and that is why no one will cede control of it to the other. India has it and occupies it, but it is a constant thorn in Pakistan's side, which is why war so often breaks out there along its unstable frontiers.

And yes, our current crop of Republicans, in a national divorce, would give Kashmir to Pakistan or China. We don't have to worry about that, though. If a split-up happens here, the Republicans will die. They might try to hold out, but when the first region they control falls to the communists virtually overnight, they will be purged everywhere else.

Islam as appalling and horrible, but it has real rules and real theology and real practices and they are stable. Combined with its practitioners' raw violence and aggression, it may well come out on top and the Maoists will be vanquished by theocracy. You have the Muslim world on one side - the Middle East through at least all of Europe and likely enclaves in North America - with the communist world in Asia and perhaps major Christian territories in Africa or Latin America.

That year, the U.S. Supreme Court shut down the decisive Florida recount and the state officially went to Bush by 537 votes out of 5.8 million cast, but no one will ever know whether he was the real winner or not.

They must have missed this PBS article:
In the first full study of Floridas ballots since the election ended, The Miami Herald and USA Today reported George W. Bush would have widened his 537-vote victory to a 1,665-vote margin if the recount ordered by the Florida Supreme Court would have been allowed to continue, using standards that would have allowed even faintly dimpled undervotes ballots the voter has noticeably indented but had not punched all the way through to be counted.

They are, but there is a problem and it is a deep psychological problem. They are being taught not to believe in G-d, it's true, but it goes well beyond that. They're being taught not to believe in *anything.* That isn't the goal (the teachers think that they're teaching belief in the state and in postmodern theory), but it is the outcome.

What do you get when you raise an even more demented and debauched form of nihilism to godhead status? You get a great unmooring, a civilization-wide manifestation of anomie. That is where we are now. Nothing is anchored and there are no ties that bind. No common values whatsoever.

That is unstable and can't stabilize. The anomie must be broken, and it will be broken by an adequately strong system of values, enforced - even at the point of a gun - by strong men. This is why I suspect Islam will win out. They have both.

Affidavit of Lieutenant Colonel Theresa Long, MD, MPH: A Brave Indictment of COVID Vaccines

With regard to the Pfizer vaccine, "One of the primary ingredients of the Lipid Nanoparticle delivery system is "ALC 1035." This is a toxic material. It "comprises between 30-50% of the total ingredients." Among a number of serious possible effects is this reality: "Caution: Product has not been fully validated for medical applications. For research use only."
Also noted: "Other journals and scientific papers also denote that this particular ingredient has never been used in humans before." The Colonel correctly notes "My assessment is that ALC 1035 is a known toxin with little study, specifically restricted to 'research only' and effectively has no prior [medical] use history."

192 Part 2

Affidavit of Lieutenant Colonel Theresa Long, MD, MPH: A Brave Indictment of COVID Vaccines

Another ingredient in the vaccine is a known toxic chemical: "Polyethylene Glycol is the active ingredient in antifreeze." There have been countless cases where people have been fatally poisoned with this chemical. This comment by the Colonel is especially impressive: "I cannot discern what form of alchemy Pfizer and the FDA have discovered that would make antifreeze into a healthful cure to the human body."

Another important point is that "Moderna's key ingredient, SM-102 is significantly more dangerous than the Pfizer ALC 3015." Noted is that "This Moderna ingredient is deadly."

Also, just saw on Insty that Rhianna told the wokies to fuck off after they criticized her for having non-black women wearing braids in a fashion show. She's since been spotted in a "Think while it's still legal" T-shirt. The DNC plantation residents are getting restless.

213 I think there is a book titled something like All I Needed To Know I Learned In Kindergarten.

I can't say I completely agree with the title, but I did learn some pretty important, yet simple lessons in school. One of the big ones was conflict resolution.

When I was 8, a kid stole a pencil eraser that I liked (it was shaped like a rocket ship and fit on the end of a pencil, which I thought was cool). Some other kids told me he took it, so I told him to give it back. He would not. So I told a teacher, who did nothing about it, I'm sure chalking it up to just another stupid, whining kid moment she had no use for.

I told my father and he told me to that if I wanted it back, I would need to take it, that he wasn't coming down to school to argue with a kid over an eraser.

My lesson was, people with you and people in authority will not be bothered with your problems. So I caught the kid in the hallway, pushed him down, opened his pencil case and got my eraser back. I got sent to the principals office and he called my father. My father said "That's what I told him to do, that you won't do anything and I wouldn't and couldn't."

My dad took me to McDonald's that afternoon

The feminists are, by and large, credulous and stupid. There are a small handful of them - mostly second-wave radical feminists - who are not. Among that subset, there are a tiny fraction who are not female supremacists. But feminists, by and large, fall into one of two groups:
1. Female supremacists
2. Communists

There is some overlap, but the first group is on its way out. No longer needed or welcome. All of those feminazi supremacists of the mid 70s through the early 90s are done for, along with their bleeding edge going back further in time. The second group has the numbers and the agenda-setting. They are all-in on the wider revolution, and women are just a pawn in that game. That is why modern feminists have embraced the transsexual movement, despite the fact that it is monstrously awful for women.

The female supremacists were at best dupes and the end of women is now at hand.

Now here's the thing...none of those articles point me to any actual use of that lipid...which would be a testament to it being safe, at least in some usages. For example, if it was used in some anti-cholesterol drug for the last 20 years.

And this seems to ALWAYS be the case with this stuff. The FNM calls it safe, or in some cases dangerous. and then...gives no data showing that it true.

And serving its purpose. I mention this from time to time, but it remains relevant. "1984" is worth reading on its own, but in my opinion the overall work is itself secondary to its appendix. In its appendix, Orwell lays out - in-universe, from the standpoint of its creators - what Newspeak is, why it exists, what its goals are and how it works.

It is absolutely bone-chilling and one of the scariest things I have ever read. I strongly recommend reading it. It is 15 pages - maybe 30 minutes at the outside - and well worth your time to understand what we now call "politically correct speech" and its true behavior and motivations.

I don't recall hearing this about vaccines specifically, but I heard, and believe, pharma companies used to have trouble being or staying profitable because of the expense of cumulative hundreds of years of research resulting in only a few useable drugs, which had limited-time patents (hmm, maybe we should have convinced Disney to buy them?), and the IP / drug production could be copied by other countries.

Two potential reasons. You may take your pick:
1. Because it is an unattainable goal but the presence of that goal justifies continuation of their insane - yet very beneficial to themselves and their pals - policies.
2. Because the goal is actually 100%, but to state that is to acknowledge that CDC agents blow-darting vaccines into people - or, more realistically, something far worse like arrest and internment and forced medical procedures - is necessary and on the roadmap.

PEG is NOT the active ingredient in antifreeze. Plain old ethylene glycol is. It's like ethylene in a way. Ethylene (the gas) is used to prevent bananas and other fruits from ripening too early. POLYethylene is what you store your milk in. Not the same shit. At all.

excerpt from affidavit
The labels for Comirnaty and BioNtech clearly state that the vaccination should not be given to individuals that are allergic to ingredients. One of the listed primary ingredients of these injectables is Polyethylene glycol ("PEG") which is close in molecular makeup and in the same family of synthetic polymers as Propylene Glycol, a common ingredient in antifreeze. Others seem to agree my point per recent scientific studies that caused a group of 57 doctors and scientists to call for an immediate halt to the vaccination program. The concern with this ingredient, is that Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is that it is an adjuvant which causes an immune response without carrying any vaccine at all. We believe 72% of the population already has PEG antibodies.

364 154 Yesterday I had a story where Moderna's stock a year ago this time was around $65/share. One year later, it's over $430.
------------------------
I saw that a month or so ago too but I don't know why the others like Pfizer haven't jumped that way too. They're still expensive but not in the $400s range.
* * *

Pfizer is at $43.10 today. A year ago it was at $33.90.

J & J is at $163.09 today. A year ago it was at $147.06.

Moderna has seen a much bigger jump in its stock price than the other pharmas. Forbes says it's three factors: (1) the profits from the covid vaccine and boosters; (2) Moderna was included in the S&P 500 Index in July; and (3) Moderna has a very robust drug pipeline, with 9 new vaccines (including a cancer vaccine) and 13 new therapeutics currently in later-stage trials and expected to be on market soon.

That bodily response to PEG, ranges from severe anaphylactic response requiring hospitalization or death, to life-long allergies and anti-drug antibodies (ADAs) which could stop other medications from working in your body. Another primary ingredient of the Lipid Nanoparticle delivery system is "ALC 0315" (two attachments, parts highlighted) in the Pfizer shots. The fourth attachment is the toxicity report on ALC-0315, which comprises between 30-50% of the total ingredients. The Safety Data Sheet, (attached as Exhibit B) for this primary ingredient states that it is Category 2 under the OSHA HCS regulations (21 CFR 1910) and includes several concerning warnings, including but not limited to:

Seek medical attention if it comes into contact with your skin
If inhaled and If breathing is difficult, give cardiopulmonary resuscitation
Evacuate if there is an environmental spill
the chemical, physical, and toxicological properties have not been completely investigated
Caution: Product has not been fully validated for medical applications. For research use only

Why Our Military is Doomed

https://bit.ly/2Y63vgs

So, leaving aside all the problems with both new and old carriers, can they survive the hypersonic swarm missile attacks the Chinese can launch today? No. And that is being quietly admitted in various high corridors of US military power: [ ... ]

We have no idea whether the Cold War carriers could withstand Soviet bomber launched anti-ship missiles, because none of our carriers ever faced such an attack.

Final thought: The Chinese and the Russians have the carrier-killers now. Our defenses against them are essentially non-existent, and will likely remain so at least for the next five years, by which time I expect the military confrontations for which they are needed to be all over but the shouting.

400 For my money, the best course of action is at the local level. Get involved there because that is where the rubber meets the road.

TRUTH

School Board and City Council--that's where it all starts.

401 Many of you have reached out to ask how you can send money for gifts, ice cream, or Mason's college scholarship fund so I have created this GoFundMeto do just that.

Curtis got slapped!

I understand your point about the connotations. By a Confederacy I mean a very loose confederation of independent states, as was the original intent of the founders. Remember before the Constitution we had Articles of Confederation. The Constitution did increase the power of the central government, but it was to have only the enumerated powers. After the New Deal Supreme Court decisions almost all limits on federal power have been abandoned. So you could call it the American Confederation of States.

403 "Hong Kong 'Tianamen Vigil' Group disbands"

By a vote of 41-4. Those 4 are probably in jail right now...

404 the national split wont be by state it will be by county and geography. most of the nation is red. the big cities are blue (obviously there are some exceptions but that's why going by county would make more sense for the split). also geography means it would be 3 countries minimum not 2. the west coast blue areas would have to be a different country than the east coast blue areas because there is no way the red country in the middle should grant them any way to connect. this is all a pipe dream of course unless we are willing to go to civil war.

405 I'm not aware of any material federal budget cuts, or department eliminations in recent history. Trump's gift is the visibility into the corruption which has generated the resistance that we are now working through, and need to channel into actions that defund the left while supporting MAGA. Note that our politicians are good at opposing the left to increase their supporters enthusiasm to win in a closely divided electorate, but I am not seeing the needed positive vision to change the status quo presented. That needs to be our mission.

406 Our founders signed what odds on should have been a death warrant in the Declaration. The Civil War was fought to establish the centrality of the idea that all men are created equal. Our third founding called on that promise in the marches for Civil Rights. We have been bequeathed the Constitution to preserve this, so our only choice is Lincoln or Calhoun. Act accordingly, with purpose, in cold anger.

407 National divorce only works if the free states execute people who were involved in election fraud, freeing criminals, political corruption, and make any form of socialism a crime.

And spell out that Judges who violate the free states Constitution get disemboweled in public for treason.
