The Error of Civility

Susan Collins, Senator from Maine just tweeted that the three branches of government and the media need to be civil. Well, that's the problem, even senators consider, in some way, the media to be a part of the government. That is evident in more ways than one, it is why Republicans often betray their own base, their own constituents in order to pander to the press, to appear to be good, cooperative people at a time when the media is trying to inspire assassinations of opposing politicians.

Civility is something arrived at through mutual respect and a sense of decency, something of which the collectivists are incapable. Their whole program requires the destruction of traditional American values. They couch that in a reach all the way back to the founding, as irrational to the rest of their arguments as that is. When it comes to the Constitution, it is a rag, something we as a people have overcome and put behind us, until they decide to attack Trump with it.

The call for civility is a call for surrender, because it is only the right that understands it. The collectivists work against every sense of civility. It is their tactic to assault civility, to thrust their hedonism in the faces of Christians, to attack the traditional marriage by expanding the definition into meaninglessness.

I see no reason to be civil to those who profit on the deaths of hundreds of thousands of unborn; who clamor for the assassination of the President; who actively promote the annihilation of white people and couch their racism in some sense of reparations for the acts of white ancestors. As sick and evil as I viewed the Obama Administration for its actions in targeting conservative groups with the power of the IRS or the deaths of thousands of Mexicans during Fast and Furious, a planned, designed policy to let them die at the hands of drug dealers directly armed by the feds, I never even considered the answer to these acts would be assassination. Those are the thoughts of thugs and criminals, especially because they have used it.

This is the error of civility. While the right has continued to pursue a civil discourse with what can only be considered a death cult of the left, civil rights have disappeared, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of association have all but been eradicated. It is a stupid, one-sided game encouraged by those on the right, who have actually aligned themselves with the left and use the concept of civility as bludgeon against their own side. It is an act of fratricide.

If ever there was a political condition in the United States where incivility were the appropriate response, it is now. The collectivists, especially the media, is on open warfare against the very principles of the republic. Their goal, their rally cry is a turn toward communism. It is reflected in their Democratic convention where the hammer and sickle flew in the absence of the stars and stripes. There is no dispute about this, except by the office holders who occasionally have to raise their hands and swear allegiance to a system they are determined to destroy.

Civility is reserved for those who deserve respect, to offer it to the base, crude and rude is an error and a denial of its very value.

Betrayal

Custer County, CO has long been a beacon of liberty in this country, not just Colorado, because the citizens there have taken back their own liberty, have established that crucial cooperation between armed citizens and law enforcement, have realigned their county commission to reflect their political views and have established their own rival "conservative" newspaper to speak to the majority. All of this in a town of about 800 people.

Custer Country, is, in a lot of ways, a model of what should be taking place across the nation. We all know that the local papers pursue a liberal agenda, even if they are deep in conservative territory. I imagine they believe themselves the agents of illumination in the darkened areas of rural America. Or, they are simply evil collectivists pursuing their agenda in an attempt to eradicate any tendency toward capitalism, freedom and self-determination. It doesn't matter what motivates them, the result is the same.

George Gramlich and Custer County have fought back and even when one tells themselves that "we can't vote ourselves out of this" that cannot be used as a reason to do nothing at all. As you will see in the article in the Sangre de Cristo Sentinel, electing "Republican" county commissioners does not always do the trick, because collectivists operate in the world with deception, intrigue and force.

George Gramlich has been a force in Custer County in many ways, eventually starting the Sangre de Cristo Sentinel to counter the collectivist swill coming from the local paper. George did what few others have had the vision to do and challenged the collectivists directly. He was instrumental in swinging the County Commission from liberal to conservative, only to be sold out by the communist tactic of deception. When the newly elected "Republican" commissioners got a chance to act, they revealed themselves as collectivist proxies. The collectivists do this, because they know they will not get a Democrat elected.

This is the part of the equation so many in the liberty community fail to understand, embrace or act upon. There is only battle, on every front, or surrender. This is why I have aligned myself with people like George and encourage and assist his efforts in any way I can. It is part of the reason we held the "works in progress" screening in Canon City. I might agree that "there is no voting our way out" but what I see all too often is total surrender.

Claire Wolfe is a huge proponent of this sort of activism, taking back liberty one county at a time, because it is our communities that matter. What goes on in D.C. affects us, no doubt, but without flushing the whole city, there is no stopping the egregious abuses. But, what happens in our own communities affects us more and we do have the ability to do something about that, if we will do it.

Elections are an expression of intent, nothing more. The real work, the hard work, is in holding those elected accountable for their actions. This is what Custer County is engaged in now, they will work to recall those elected officials who used subterfuge to get elected only to vote counter to their promises. And, yes, start the process all over again, but we only have RINOs in this nation because the citizens don't have a plan for that betrayal and we've seen it enough to expect it by now.

On the 4th of July, Westcliffe, in Custer County, CO, will hold their annual open carry contingent in the parade. It is a great opportunity to show those collectivists in the county that the right to keep and bear arms will not be infringed. This year it will be dedicated to the memory of Mike Vanderboegh, who attended one of these events in the past. In a town of 800, there were 400 open carry individuals in the contingent due to Mike and his participation.

One Possible Solution

The media is clamoring for Donald Trump's head figuratively and in some cases literally as in their wide publicizing of a play depicting the assassination ostensibly of a Trumplike Caesar or in the more grotesque depiction of Kathy Griffin holding up a severed head. This is not just media publicity, this has gone to the point of advocacy for the assassination of a sitting president.

There is a significant difference between the actions of a few misguided individuals threatening to assassinate Barack Obama and the open hostility and encouragement of the assassination by the loudest voices in the nation. It is what Matt Bracken calls, in the film Lies of Omission, "ginning up furor and fervor among the loose wingnuts out there" for the assassination of Trump.

Now, whether it is the media clamoring for Trump's assassination, or the leftists judges ruling unconstitutionally to deny Trump the power of the presidency, or the collectivists of both parties trying to challenge every action of the president and pursuing impeachment options, it is all designed simply to deny a legally elected president the power of the presidency. They don't mind if he holds the office, or lives in the White House, what they will not allow is for him to fulfill executive duties.

This is treason, but it is much more than that, it is the initial stages of a civil war, because if they think they are going to be able to run Trump out of town on a rail with no consequences they are sadly and destructively mistaken. These are actions being taken against the system, not just Trump. They have a narrow focus on a single man, but they forget that Trump has millions and millions of followers and even more that recognize this violation of civil society as treasonous and who will join with the Trumpsters, whether they ever agreed with him or not, because it is a very dangerous precedent that cannot be allowed to succeed.

Those whom we elect must be allowed to fulfill their duties, or there is no use in voting.

The dynamic is simply this: Donald Trump was elected because Hillary Clinton is the head of a criminal organization and because the traditional Republican voter had been sold out by establishment Republicans one too many times. So, they chose the one person who was actually talking about defending this nation, protecting the borders and helping the private sector create jobs. That's why he was elected and it is what the people wanted him to do. To deny him the ability to do what they had elected him to do, they place themselves in the position of advocated for the opposite.

If one were to ask what would have to happen to have a civil war in the United States, the answer would be: "prove that a great many of the people of the nation have no interest in its security, prosperity or adherence to the rule of law. It would have to be proved that voting no longer produced an outcome that the people could rely on to make the changes they sought. It would have to be demonstrated that half of the nation would never find justice or get a fair hearing in any social setting."

Take all of the legitimate means of change off the table and there remains only one possible solution: war.

Home

After a few weeks of surgeries and spending some time at my mothers house, which was closer to the hospital and the orthopedic surgeon than my place, I am finally home. I still have a considerable splint wrapped in gauze and a  pound or two of metal in my leg, but I am home.

I have always been a bit too prideful when it comes to being independent and self sufficient, that has been brought back to me in spades while I deal with this injury, unable to carry things with crutches; steps, once taken two at a time are now daunting challenges even one at a time. It is difficult watching my mother and my wife do for me the little things that keep me off my foot. I watch my wife do all the chores I used to take in stride, but now seem like mountainous achievements.

Yeah, I can get around, but it is humbling.

But, now that I am back at home and have access to the sorts of things I can do, I will be getting back to the film. Hundreds of people have given to this endeavor and they deserve to have me back at work. We have at least been accepted for the Impact DOCS Awards. We have submitted to a few other film festivals, but no word on those, yet. We have submitted to NPR's POV series, because my attitude is, give them a chance to prove their bias, it doesn't cost us anything to submit the film to them. There are many other things in the works, floating out there, waiting for me to get back in the game, so tomorrow I will be doing that.

The reason this is important and why, when those who have donated get their copies of the film it will be important to spread the word on Twitter and Facebook, is that part of what is discussed in the film is Fast and Furious. This is a scandal, the perpetrators of which have never been punished, the crimes committed never revealed to the general public. Lies of Omission is more than a film, it is a chance to revive interest in some of the scandalous actions of government that have gone by a blind media. But, a film is different, it has the power to bypass the media. Dinesh D'Souza proved that with his films and while this might never be that big, it still has that power to sidestep a hostile media.

And, I think that's what must be presented to the next generation, that the media is actually hostile to anything other than the collectivist drumbeat. No, Lies of Omission is not a hate-filled finger pointing diatribe, it is a rational description of how liberty has been lost, by who and why. It is told by those who have been in the fight, who have exposed scandals and who have struggled in anonymity to stand up to the forces oppression.

Things are moving fast in America, the media, the deep state, the warmongers are aligned against us. Yes, they focus on Trump as if getting rid of him is the answer, but what they are really against are the people who believe in what Trump has stood for, responsible immigration, lower taxes, less regulation, responsible budgets, a government not dedicated to the enslavement of the people. Trump himself is not the issue, though they pretend that he is. They are against the people who voted for him and are trying to reverse those votes. This is an organized rebellion. And, while this is not news to anyone, it is a fact and Lies of Omission is a weapon against these forces.

Treason

There is a division of the nation that cannot be repaired. While the media pretends that everything it does is out of concern for the nation, it is really out of concern for the advances toward collectivism that have been made under Barack Obama that piques their concern. The way that the media and the "deep state" cooperate to maintain those collectivist advances is startling, or would be, if anyone reported on it.

Understand that everything that has gone on since the election of Donald Trump has been to deny him the presidency, not so much the office, but the power of the office. This was evident when federal and appellate judges ruled against a clear and logical power of the President concerning national security when he signed executive orders to ban individuals from certain nations from coming to the United States largely because those individuals could not properly be vetted as to previous criminal or terrorist activity.

It is evident when certain cities refuse to obey federal law and governors and mayors openly vow to violate federal law to prevent Donald Trump from enforcing immigration laws.

It is evident when investigations into illegal acts of FBI and CIA directors, former Attorney Generals are ignored by the media and evidence withheld by the "deep state" actors while

This is more than just a difference of opinion, it is more than opposing Donald Trump as an individual. This is a rebellion against the republic in favor of a collectivist system, a government ruled society. In this nation, no matter how slim the vote totals, no matter how close the electoral college vote, whoever emerged as the President of the United States, was vested with all of the obligations, duties and power of the office.

This is an attack on the legitimacy of the election by a number of "deep state" actors determined to defend themselves from illegal actions committed under the Obama Administration. It is not a question of Donald Trump at all, except that it reveals the degree of corruption and collusion that exists between the establishment Republicans and Democrats to operate the offices of the American justice system to the detriment of the American people.

This collusion has grown into a hostile opposition to any elected official who attempts to disrupt the ongoing illegal activities of these "deep state" actors. They enlist the willing assistance of the media to demonize elected officials who seek reform. They use the media and the power of their offices to marginalize and demonize individuals who might expose their scandals or their illegal activities.

This is not to unprecedented or new by any means. What is new is that it is now open and in operational form. It is being used on a daily basis as a weapon against an "uncontrolled" President, one who has not been bought off and manipulated by the system. In a lot of ways, it is important for this president to engage this underground government and expose it for what it is: treason.
