MSM screams that voter-ID and election-integrity laws are "THE END OF DEMOCRACY"!!! To wit, an uber-wealthy, professional-sports league was pressured and guilted into moving an Allstar game from a majority-minority city, Atlanta, GA, to relatively pasty-white, Denver, CO because of the passage of an election-integrity law...
How about we stop mouth-breathing for a moment and use our brains and think?
What sounds more like "THE END OF DEMOCRACY"...???
A law that requires a person voting to show a photo-ID like you have to do when buying alcohol or, IRONICALLY, applying for a government program.
A law that requires that you have to make a formal request for an absentee ballot to vote by mail.
A law that requires equal access to be given to both major political parties to oversee ballot recording.
Allowing people who show up to vote to not have to prove who they are in any way, shape, form or fashion.
Allowing ballot harvesting.
Allowing noncitizens to vote.
Allowing illegal immigrants to vote.
Allowing early voting, as much as a month early, before all information about the candidates is in.
Mailing out ballots to everyone to vote by mail.
Allowing for dual citizenship, which gives dual citizens, who have obvious split allegiance, the right to vote.
Mandating changes to election laws when it is explicitly stated in the State's Constitution that such changes must be made by the legislature.
(And, I am not including ALL the shenanigans that DID go on during the 2020 election.)
I would proffer that if you are a clear-thinking person, the choice about what sounds more like "THE END OF DEMOCRACY" is OBVIOUS!!! Stop believing these globalist, establishmentarian shills in the MSM, MSE and academia!

Allowing emotions to be played to in the public sphere inevitably causes the advancement of mediocre authoritarian ideas by mendacious, power-hungry people lacking intellectual honesty and wisdom... BECAUSE doing ANYthing can be justified by an emotional appeal.
I know American politics is America's concern, BUT especially given that I lived several years in and indeed am married to this side of the world and have visited some of these places... On behalf of my country, for what is apparently about to happen, moreover, while the international community along with China and Iran cheers about the results in America,... I apologize to Hong Kong, Taiwan, Tibet, Mongolia, the Uyghur Muslims and Falun Gong members. I am so sorry for the lack of wisdom and abundance of willful ignorance of the apparent majority of my fellow Americans.
I have finally come to realize that folks on the conservative side of the ball need to be much more judicious when it comes to accusing leftists and liberals of hypocrisy. It all too often does not serve to advance the discussion -- and even backfires -- because in most instances it does not mean the same thing for them and the indoctrinated masses as it does for conservatives.
Imperfect though we are and we believe every human being to be, a conservative has objective standards and principles that he or she tries to live by as best as one can. Of course, 100% success, or even much less than that, is impossible but that does not make conservatives hypocrites. It just makes them imperfect. After all, contrary to conventional definitions and popular opinion, hypocrisy is not one's not living according to one's ideals (for that is the imperfection of humanity) BUT RATHER one's having one set of rules for oneself and a different, more oppressive set of rules for OTHERS, that is to say, one's doing things one tells OTHERS not to do (THAT is hypocrisy).
For liberals and leftists objective standards and principles do NOT take precedence. What they have is a cause, driven by global-statist, socialist/communist ideology and, of course, self-interest. Therefore, albeit in a tendentious and self-deluded manner, they experience and, thus, define hypocrisy differently.
What hypocrisy is for the conservative is when someone violates the standards and principles that they espouse for everyone, like someone who mandates protective mask-wearing for all but violates it themselves. Hypocrisy is when one has rules for others but not for oneself. That is what a hypocrite is to the conservative.
But, this is not what hypocrisy is for leftists and liberals. Think it through...
What hypocrisy is for the leftist and the liberal is when someone acknowledges the merits of the other side or the flaws in the leftist cause. This notably occurs when someone fails to attack and ostracize whoever opposes the statist cause and the parties who have a stake in the cause. That is what a hypocrite is for the left.
As such, calling lefties hypocrites is not the optimal way to make intellectual inroads in the general public, for whom the charge largely does not register because they have been indoctrinated in the leftist cause by American Marxists in the schools, MSM and MSE and have thus become unfortunately inured to and unfazed by such charges against the left.
But, anyway, it is not so much that they are hypocritical as they are disingenuous... and a bunch of scolds! In their rhetoric, disinformation is their currency; intellectual dishonesty and tendentiousness are their modus operandi, and ignorance, feigned and willful, is their escape hatch. All of that, and not so much hypocrisy, is what conservatives need to unwaveringly and incessantly be pointing out!

Trump ... has told so many lies about that [the pandemic] and so many other things, we can’t count them all.
I know the demoncrat-driven MSM was so into counting Trump-administration lies. How many lies of such SUBSTANTIAL impact by the MSM, demoncrat apparatus, intelligence community and Biden family have just been affirmed in one fell swoop by last week's NYT article about Hunter's laptop: Shop owner who gave Biden laptop to FBI says NYT story 'a day late and a dollar short'??? And, I know some shills, right around here even, will not even bat an eye... and probably even have at the ready some vapid, smart-ass, somewhat plausible-ish, but ultimately silly excuse in defense of media coverage. My God...
Would someone, PLEASE, ask Supreme Court Justice-to-be, Ketanji Brown Jackson, "What are you? Are you a woman?" And, if she answers, "Yes, I am a woman," then follow up with, "Well, what is that? How is it that you are a woman?"

Spoken like a true leftist professor who is totally unconcerned about being censored by Twitter or reprimanded by his employer, Yale, no less fired. No self-awareness and so no sense of irony, which would not be so concerning, save for the fact that dude is an Ivy League professor. Actually, it is par for the course and a course in the postmodern Academy.

I mean REALLY... in the face of this regarding the SUPPRESSION of the New York Post when they broke the story, a REAL "BOMBSHELL", about Hunter's laptop and the Biden family's super shady, international-business dealings ...
In the meantime, while statues and murals of George Floyd go up, does anybody even know who a real hero like Bishop Evans is? Not if you watch the MSM...
Yet, we are told, "Black lives matter," as black lives -- mostly YOUNG black lives -- continue to be lost in droves -- NOT at the hands of police officers but in heartless, gangbanger drive-bys -- in our major cities.
We are left only to speculate that is because THAT is NOT due to so-called "systemic racism" and that THIS kind of thing truly advances the cause:
Black faces are being systematically removed from the public consciousness... Something foul is afoot!
Oh, but do not think for yourself about any of that. What is trending on Google and Bing today? Some supposed "investigative journalist" at The NYT, the MSM's beacon, wants to, at the very least, create a distraction, at worst, implant this into your consciousness to fester...
Meanwhile, I know there are people reading this thinking (and I quote, incorrect grammar and all, from a message recently received), "Your so mistaken about us....... " Mind you, said dude once sent me a clip of the unfunny propagandist John Oliver to make his point as if it were, in the least bit, cogent and persuasive.

U. of Chicago student asks, "Do you think the media acted inappropriately when they instantly dismissed Hunter Biden's laptop as 'Russian disinformation'? What can be learned from that [so that we are] ensuring that what we label as disinformation is truly disinformation and not reality?"
Anne Applebaum of The Atlantic replies, "My problem with Hunter Biden's laptop is I think [it is] totally irrelevant," she said. "I mean it's not whether it's disinformation or I mean I don't think the -- Hunter Biden's business relationships have anything to do with who should be president of the United States." First off, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Second, THAT is exactly the mindset of a disinformationist: I know better than you what you should know.
BUT, to hell with conferences, the Buydem administration is setting up their very own KG..., eh-hem,... DGB, that is, Disinformation Governance Board!!! You cannot make this stuff up! (It is like the advocacy group for the alphabet mafia that is noticeably oddly named the Human Rights Campaign,... eh-hem,... that is, HRC! These people are insidiously narcissistic and power-hungry. But, I again digress...)
Mayorkas's claim that the Disinformation Governance Board will help with the immigration "problem" at the border is itself disinformation!!!
My God, what we thought were just canaries in the coal mine have turned out to be cats guardingthe canary cage... in the coal mine,... and we patriots are the canaries! But, the free thinkers among us already knew all that... ...
Given that we know, we must STOP crediting the Cal Berkeley "free speech" movement back in the 60's with a damn thing... as it was NOT about freedom of speech, per se, that is, for all Americans. Those communists just wanted their freedom of communist speech, which, according to the very nature of communism, means unquestioned speech,... screaming, shouting and pointing fingers of all-knowing, righteous indignation! Now, here we are... Censorship abounds, and the censors are the arbiters of disinformation while they themselves are the purveyors of disinformation! It is dizzying... and terrifying!

It has been awhile since I posted a little dank, sociopolitical wisdom up here, and frankly speaking, I got A LOT of material of good length (beyond which can be posted at, like, TruthSocial) in the queue... I will try to get to it here soon. In the meantime, let me share with yous this ongoing, little side project...
The tendentious RINOsaurus establishment, especially those led by Rupert's libbo sons' dangling dollars, exhibits such duplicity and downright evil... They underfunded or outright defunded and otherwise did not support Trump-endorsed candidates in this election cycle and now blame Trump for the lack of success of those candidates, which is really only turning out to be a half-truth. You do not have to be a Trump-loving patriot to see how nefariously, insidiously AND TRANSPARENTLY manipulative that is. Don't woke up and sell your soul! Wake up and smell the coffee, people!

Hunter's laptop is Russian Disinformation,... FALSE! Accepted by MSM only after New York Times admits it one and a half years AFTER New York Post reported it and was censored on social media for having done so thereby suppressing the story.
Steele Dossier, predicate of Trump-Russia collusion,... FALSE! Still only starting to be accepted by MSM after Federal Elections Committee fined Clinton campaign about it.
Would-be Demoncrat Presidential candidate Avenatti-led defamation case on behalf of pornster (not star) Stormy Daniels,... FALSE! Trump even awarded approximately $300,000 in fees incurred for having to defend himself in fraudulent case.
New York DA Bragg-led case regarding Trump Organization financial irregularites,... FALSE! Case so bad that it falls apart during grand-jury stage when two liberal demoncrat, mind you, lawyers had to walk away because it was such bullshit.
Kyle Rittenhouse, white supremacist murderer,... FALSE! Aquitted!
This is just a short list of RECENT, 2022 fallout... Especially since the MSM does not just get it wrong BUT the REVERSE tends to be TRUE, what about... Wuhan coronavirus origins? ... Hillary's emails? ... Trump will cause a war? ... Inflation is transitory? ... Trump ignored Russian bounties? ... Ray Epps is evidently worth ignoring? ... Trump mentally unfit for office? ... Tony Bobulinski obviously is worth ignoring? ... the 2020 election? God, I could go on FOREVER!!!
BUT, I digress... It has been, will be determined that what happened on January 6, 2021 was an insurrection,... FALSE! Indeed, save for a couple outlying rioters, it is quite the contrary. I say that with great confidence. I am not a prophet. I just see the track record and can think for myself. Indeed, we have political prisoners in the U.S. at the behest of the political establishment and demoncrat leadership. Let that sink in!
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C. S. Lewis
"When the whole world is running towards a cliff, he who is running in the opposite direction appears to have lost his mind." - C. S. Lewis
The manufactured hatred for Donald Trump is... very sick. If you find yourself hateful toward Donald Trump or, worse yet, conservatives or republicans in general, such that it does not even allow you to hear out their thoughts even when they are friendly voices trying to engage in rational conversation, especially in the terribly difficult, fundamentally inflationary times in which we find ourselves, make a resolution in 2023 to seek help. You seriously need it. You have been programmed!
All the best for a happier, healthier, less hate-filled new year...

1923... The post-Woodrow Wilson roaring 20's! Calvin Coolidge, GREAT president! Good times!
In any case, I got into this with one of my (semi-conservative, establishment-republican) colleagues by email, and you are making a similar point to his, Joe. I see it differently, though... I actually think this is more so how it is supposed to work. As opposed to the corrupt horse trading secretly done behind closed doors, this is the process that is out in the open for us all to witness. In fact, I think these closed-door, predetermined coronations of House Speakers and Senate Majority and Minority Leaders (like Pelosi, Schumer and McConnell) for years, even decades, on end that we have come to be accustomed to -- and, indeed, per Joe's response here, even expect -- are indicative of or, at least, OBVIOUSLY vulnerable to, at best, the formation of an entrenched establishment and, at worst, serious corruption at the highest levels (remember Schumer's ominous, not-too-veiled threat to then President Trump about the intelligence agencies: https://youtu.be/c3p2zKPQSgI?t=475???). Point being, I like how this is playing out. As opposed to preordained coronations, I think this is more so how the Founding Fathers envisioned the process. That is my...
What ever happened to all the prideful, Marxist-Leninist demoncrats' fist-pumpin', virtue-signalin' talk of sanctuary cities???
The only thing transparent, which Obama ran on all the way back ten minutes ago, about him and his WEF, Open Society, globalist, establishmentarian minions, shills, useful idiots, noble liars and suckers -- and overlords -- is their modus operandi.
So, I see what the MSM is doing, now even going so far as to hearken allllllllll the waaaayyyyy back to the Mueller Report... Let me summarize...
There is a little bit -- eh-hem,... a relative miniscule amount, mind you, compared to our corrupt MSM hyperbole -- but perhaps just a little bit of some "there there" against Trump in the Mueller Report. () We lament that there is nothing indictable, criminal, no less impeachable, or even unusually seedy for the world of international business, but,... eh-hem,... maybe, just maybe some mud to sling and distract the masses and come back to your informed friends and family with. So, everybody, let's stay focused on that. After all, we have to focus hard since we need microscopes to see it. Ha-ha-ha-ha (sweat on brow)... And, whatever you do, do NOT pay any attention to that MOUNTAIN of OBVIOUS and in some cases even PHYSICAL evidence against the Bidens, Clintons and many others that is PLAIN SIGHT (as Brennan, Strzok and Schiff shove your head back down on the microscope as you go to look up). In accordance, do NOT watch any alternative, non-legacy media that,... eh-hem,... disagrees with us,... oh,... and the CCP,... at least, like, say, Real America's Voice or The Blaze, that would inform you about any of that obvious stuff in plain sight. Just stay in your mental cage... and believe our lies!
Well, that about sums it up!

This is just me spreading the good word... as I know there are political ignoramuses who hold very strong positions about politics, which, moreover, are out of proportion to the level of exposure, awareness and knowledge they themselves claim they lack, the kinds of "Default General Public" positions that are one-sided and tearing apart the fabric of the country, even though they claim they are "moderates", that is to say, the kind of people who do not consult sources that would cover this: https://rumble.com/v2dvfu8-vivek-ramaswamy-takes-a-stand-calls-for-desan tis-and-haley-to-talk-about-tr.html.

The following is the difference between mainstream leftwing media and rightwing alternative media, which does not include Fox News save for a few exceptions...
The democrats tell the mainstream leftwing media what to say, and, in turn, the mainstream leftwing media tells YOU what to think, and so a narrative is put between YOU and what is actually going on.
Rightwing alternative media gives YOU raw information and, in turn, tells republicans what to do and thereby provides a bridge between YOU and those in power based on what is actually going on.
This distinction is most apparent in the way protected groups are used as cover for collusion and behavior that is scandalous, even treasonous, or, at the very least, exhibits fairly clearcut conflict of interest.
How much bearing false witness can a nation take? We are going to find out, I guess.
