Bracken: Tsunami

It ends a bit awkwardly, but this video is an excellent compilation of some of Matt's recent appearances on Alex Jones' InfoWars.  An absolute "must see".

An Answer to Joe Bob Briggs

Joe Bob,

I know you didn't solicit any correspondence, but here it is anyway.

My first exposure to your very very fine writing was the weekly Focus newspaper's carriage of your Joe Bob Goes to the Drive-In features.  A stack of Focus papers was at the door, and another at the bar, at Ten Years After tavern, where I frequently ruled the pool room and occasionally frammed out some power chords in the Wednesday night blues jam.  That had to be back in the 80's, so I've been a fan for quite a while.

So, my initial reaction to your Taki Mag column, Barney Fife Runs North Carolina is great disappointment.  You're a much, much better writer than I am, but I hope to counter or correct some of your wrong-headed article.  While you're an acknowledged (and well-trained, obviously) professional, I am but a lowly amateur, butchering prose to anybody who'll listen.  Which is usually nobody.

Let's begin with your empathy (cloaked in your twisted concept of "Southern moral values and philosophy") to the transgender-surgery seekers, and the medical nonsense that they were born with an error-gene.  Would you concede the notion that, given the prospect for a federal funding windfall, some "genetic medical researchers" might actually fabricate this "scientific evidence" that you've rubber-stamped in your article?  Is your next article going to beat the drum for settled global warming science?

Am I suggesting that your empathy is invalid?  No, just woefully misapplied.  I think your editor recognized this, and maybe just didn't want to crush that little burgeoning social justice warrior heart.

You're absolutely correct that the ACC pulling events probably hurt North Carolinians more than any of those others, because basketball IS dear to our culture.  Even though I've largely eschewed much of my own need for entertainment, that one stung a bit.  But then, so is the concept of self-determination a real part of our culture, even if it's buried deep within our souls and nearly long-forgotten.

Is the legal definition of bathroom options the hill we want to die on for the sake of Liberty?  No.  But, I'll tell you something you've missed in this: we're mighty sick of just conceding the optics battle for the sake of fighting somewhere better, later on.  You can be as accepting as you wish of those gender-confused misfits, and your New York new-normal homosexuals.  But we'd like some say in what we consider normal, versus what we consider perverted, or abnormal.

I'll go on record to say that I am very much against the notion of legislating the finer points of morality.  I would very much prefer to live and let live.  But, and I've said this time and again, this week's "tolerate us" is next week's "bake our fucking cakes, you haters, or be forced out of business."  If the nation is to be a nation, then the first thing its government has got to do is define (and maintain) its limits, those borders.  Guns pointed outwards.  If my State has any validity at all, it has to have its guns pointed outward too, at those who'd force it to be something it's not, or something to which a tiny minority would have the rest of us accede.  And, that State has to be willing to cut the umbilical to Uncle Sugar (and the centers of debauchery in New York, Chicago, and LA).  I'd rather not even have a governor, but as long as there is one, I'm happy he'll fight the outsiders' insistence on normalizing perversions.  And I'll endorse that kind of fight on any hill.

And so, the thing that's the most wrong-headed of your column, is your willingness to jump on the yankee bandwagon and use our culture, like a cudgel, against us.  Shame on you.  Or, as Gomer would say, "shame, shame, shame."  Here's the clue-bat, Joe Bob: basketball is not the religion of North Carolina, much as that fact may disappoint you.  It is entertainment, and part of our history and culture.  But, our religion is much much deeper than basketball and all the sports, and all the self-righteous music stars and Hollywood celebrities, and all the New York and DC fuck-withs.  And even far more important than the clever Texas writers we thought we loved.

You very well could have shown the hypocrisy of those same big-dollar entertainment associations, like the NCAA's willingness to whore themselves to the far-less sympathetic cultures abroad, no?  But you didn't.  You chose the elitist bandwagon.  The Dook coach has more fans in New Jersey than he has in NC, so please do us the courtesy of not citing him as a standard of "classiness".

Your boycotts and your derision might hurt, financially and emotionally.  We do like the entertainment, and had largely become addicted to it.  But, we'll still have plenty of culture without your dollars, and without Springsteen browbeating us with his faux patriotism.  Feel free to go your own way, Joe Bob.  You are no more a child of the South than that former Arkansas governor who won't go away. Keep your condescending cultural cudgels right the fuck out.  Or, keep 'em coming.  Because eventually more of my neighbors will get fed up with having our noses rubbed in some yankees' preferred cultural standards.

Our culture has gone to shit.  Every effort to staunch the bleeding has failed.  I'd like to know when good intelligent people are of like mind, but it's just as valuable in the long run to know who isn't.  I would have at least expected more intellectual honesty from you, Joe Bob.

I would have just expected better, overall.

One last thing: Aunt Bea doesn't care for you putting words in her mouth or pretending to side with her.  And she doesn't care for your new-normal perversions, either.

Charles Hugh Smith on The Media

The Mainstream Media Bet the Farm on Hillary--and Lost

"The mainstream media has failed: it has failed its sacred duty in a democracy to report the facts and let the voters decide what is or isn't important, it has engaged in orchestrated deception, refusing to report facts that cast a shadow over their chosen candidate, it has failed to cast a skeptical eye on its chosen candidate's actions and private accumulation of wealth, and it has attempted to block legitimate inquiries into Hillary's wealth and health with crass, propagandistic attacks and smear campaigns against anyone who dares question Hillary's MSM-granted "right" to be coronated president in January 2017."

American Pravda.  There are those of us who have been conned, those who've been coerced, and those who've been co-opted.

Do I Miss My TeeVee?

Fired the television earlier this year; shoulda been done long ago.  And no, I do not miss it one bit.  Look at the reading stack I've gone through for the year:

That's all 21 of John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee series, Samuel Findlay's Breakfast With the Dirt Cult, Forrest Carter's The Education of Little Tree, Watch For Me on the Mountain, Gone to Texas, and The Vengeance Trail of Josey Wales, and Robert Gore's The Golden Pinnacle (which I am currently through to chapter 18).  I actually read two of the Travis McGee books twice, also: The Lonely Silver Rain (because I ordered it first, by itself, from Amazon, who inverted the chronology thanks a lot) and Darker Than Amber which was made into a movie in 1970 starring Rod Taylor.

My favorite JDM book was probably The Green Ripper.  There's a chapter in (I think) A Deadly Shade of Gold that Mr. Findlay should read.

My favorite of the whole stack has to be the Josey Wales twofer from Carter.  As great as the movie was (and it's the one movie that every American man should have seen at least a hundred times), these two books are even better.  Where the supporting characters in the movie are a bit one-dimensional, the book gives them much more depth.  Which is as it should be.

Every teenage boy should read The Education of Little Tree.

My Enemies Foreign & Domestic business card has weathered the whole stack as a bookmark, and is still going strong for next year's list.  Which should probably include many more items from John D. MacDonald (the greatest American author you don't yet know).  High on that list will be The Executioners which was twice made into the movie Cape Fear.  Speaking of Travis McGee movies, Christian Bale stubbed his toe before making The Deep Blue Good-By and that project is shelved (again).  I don't think he'd make a good Travis McGee, anyway.

Not pictured (because it's in the Kindle reader) is Francis Poretto's Which Art In Hope and the PDF version of Gary North's Conspiracy In Philadelphia.

Top that, boob-tube suckas.

Seceding, Still

To David Burge, Stephen Hayes, Nikki Haley, NRO, and every other spineless, knee-jerking apologist bent on "doing something" in the wake of another cluster-murder...

I do not think it means what you think it means.

It does not represent a government, or even systemic hatred.  But, a withdrawal of consent.

We tried it (secession) once in a top-down application, and it stirred up too much foofrau.  We're doing it again, one sovereign individual at a time.  Try to respect that, you boneheads.

I suspect that Skankles Clinton's announcement of intended candidacy may just be a smokescreen for the DNC, and that they intend to suckerpunch the Clintonistas with "I'm 1/12 Cherokee" Elizabeth Warren, maybe sometime after all the Rebublicrats have announced.

If so, how about a name-that-indian exercise for Warren's version of stolen valor?

Religious freedom:

And actually, according to the State, it's now a "privilege" to keep all of your own blood.  By driving on the State's roads (not to be confused with the roads that you paid for and built yourself), you implicitly give them consent to draw off whatever they deem necessary...

Bracken Takes WaPo to Woodshed

via Doug Ross, Matt Bracken's comments in response to the Fast & Furious document dump.

Bracken quoting WaPo: "The operation targeted Mexican gun traffickers, but two rifles involved were linked to the killing of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry."
That is the official MSM Koolaid line, but it's a lie. Under Operation Fast and Furious, there was no attempt to track the guns after they crossed the border. We didn't even inform the Mexican government or law enforcement, or seek their cooperation in tracking the guns, because tracking the guns was not the objective. The objective was to buttress the false meme being promoted by Obama, Holder and Hillary Clinton that "90% of the guns found at Mexican murder scenes came from America." The actual objective, by spreading this lie, was to turn Americans against the 2nd Amendment.
300+ Mexicans and a pair of American agents murdered with F&F guns were the price Obama, Holder and Clinton were willing to pay. Mass murder abroad was the price they were willing to pay for a political objective at home. And what did we hear from American Pravda? Crickets. Operation Fast and Furious was pure evil, mass murder for political purposes, and the MSM was a willing partner.
More at Director Blue.  Get 'em, Matt.

Do We Need It?

Government, that is.  Do you need it?

I'm sure that if I said that I do not need it, a tsunami of dot-gov pain infliction would ensue.  Immediately after one branch of guvmint delivered a busload of recently-incarcerated felons at my driveway, another branch would begin demolishing a "state" road. A third would fine me for environmentally unsustainable noncompliance regarding my greenhouse.  The 4th branch, operating on the presumption that my "rights" are gifts from my government, claim that by refusing government I've abdicated my rights to property and self-preservation, and they therefore must take my legal tender and weaponry.  The fifth branch imprisons me for hate speech, when I voice my displeasure regarding the convicts.

If I were to withdraw my consent, would I be free to just go?

Thought exercise...if South Carolina had been allowed to peaceably exit the Union, would there have been a War of Northern Aggression?  Which other states would also secede?  Certainly not North Carolina, since they were forced into secession by the Union's insisting she send her sons to fight against the perceived "rebellion", n'est ce pas?

This is the best video I've seen on the value of "our Republic" and voting.  And, I think it may also be the best video I've posted.

And, I'll be ordering this book by Larken Rose (not that I'll subscribe to his theological bent).

To Copsucker Shepherd Smith

During last night's interruption in Bret Baier's Special Report, I heard you breathlessly reading the news that Eric Frein had been captured, emoting how "good" that news was and parroting the PSP's claim (spurious as it likely is) that he'd planned mass killings.

While you're pulling on your Junior Pennsylvania State Police jumpsuit (the one with the padded knees and zipper in the back), watch this video and read about some of the dead trooper's fellow thugs.  Not saying that dead trooper had it coming, but when the LEO "community" in PA and its abetting-after-the-fact court system is this monstrous, including trooper intimidation of nurse and jurors, one can hardly imagine any recourse but to repay such thuggery in kind.

This video is by a former PA police officer.

And the worst manifestation of the police state is its complicit state media.  That's you, Shep.

That's the sound that James O'Keefe's 2x4 makes hitting Kay Hagan's, Irwin Carmichael's, Carla Cunningham's, Yolanda Trotman's, and other campaign officials (who urge non-citizens to vote in the upcoming elections) right smack in their felonious mouths.

Let's say that I'm not too enamored with the "R" gang party.  But which gang of miscreants stands most likely to benefit from Class I felonious voter fraud?  Nota Bene how none of these campaign officials so much as flinch at hearing, "I'm illegal, and want to vote."

Curious: if the campaign official (at 4:15) working for "Republican" Chris Hailey, is also lauding the character of Kay Hagan, how much does that say for/against Hailey?

With a record of nothing besides being an Obama sycophant, what else might explain a Hagan victory than widespread fraud?

Thanks again, James and Project Veritas.

Gee, Kay Hagan, Thanks

As one who has withdrawn his consent to BE governed by you clowns, I won't be helping to legitimize your system next Tuesday.  But, that doesn't mean I don't recognize better policies when I hear them, and hope for small victories along the way.
Your recent ad criticizes Thom Tillis for favoring self-defense over violent gang thugs and their thuggery.  Who knew you sided with the thugs?!
I think you're about as loathsome a creature as Tolkien's Gollum, but I didn't really have anything to specifically like about Thom Tillis until hearing your ad, except for his not being you.  Until now, that is...thanks!

Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammo

If you choose to put your faith and trust in an institution made up, almost entirely, of politicians, lawyers, and bureaucrats, then you're dumb.  And that's disappointing.

If, on the other hand, you choose to shun (or worse, ostracize) me for standing opposed to all the king's men, then you're not just dumb, but wicked.  And that's infuriating.

Just to bring you up to speed, this guy, appointed "Ebola Czar" was quoted as having said, “I think the top leadership challenge issue in our world today is how to deal with the continuing, growing population in the world..."  There's video of this very statement at the link.
(photo pilfered from WRSA)
Not just a challenge, but the challenge.  If population control was not their perceived benefit, they'd certainly behave much differently than they are.  The regime's choice of Klipboard Klain is a feature of their intentions, not a bug.  And their intentions are wicked, beyond your worst imagining...beyond your imagination, that is, unless you're as wicked as they are.  And, absent your embrace, I can hardly help but recognize that as the ever-more-likely possibility.
Per Bracken's advice, I'm reading Camus' The Plague.  3/5 of the way through, the overriding sentiment is widespread anguish over the isolation and loneliness amongst those quarantined in Oran.  I don't like my own loneliness and exile any more than they did theirs, but you folks, "family" and "friends", have helped condition me for that over these last several years.  A hardened heart; thanks for that, at least.
The recent dearth of bloggage, here at the ST&L, has mostly been due to the fact that I can't read and process all the info I'm after fast enough to sate my own appetite, much less chew it thoroughly and regurgitate it for anyone else concerned.  And the predictable trend is for that to continue.
If you came here looking for insight, get ye otherwise to WRSA and Aesop.  If there's a headquarters for the freedom movement, CA's place is it.  And if there's a more astute, prolifically-ongoing breakdown of all things Obola-related, than the Raconteur Report (of special worth: this), then I wanna know about it.
Sam at Guerrillamerica recently advised color-coding the results of the recon you've made vis-à-vis your AO.  I think that's a fine idea, and one more thing that needs doing, right in the Livermush Redoubt.  There are houses that easily get assigned red stickers, but blue ones are in dreadfully short supply.  Please, please, please raise your hand if you think you qualify.
Time is of the essence.
  1. There is no certainty that Ebola cannot be spread through the air.
  2. Persons have presented, and will do so again, without fever.  That is, they're sick and otherwise symptomatic, but don't have a high (passed the 101.5? threshold) fever.
  3. The 21-day contagiousness/incubation window is not an absolute.
Last, I fear that those 4,000 soldiers being sent to the worst areas of the epidemic are not a genuine humanitarian mission.  That their 4-hours of "training" and zero effective PPE indicate something, instead, absolutely sinister.  This administration fully expects them to contract Ebola, and then come home for treatment.  Then, it's game on and game over.
I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it.
