2018: The year the far-Left became openly hostile to the cause of Liberty

2018 The year the far-Left became openly hostile to the cause of Liberty

Looking back at 2018 and how the Parkland mass murder caused the Left snap and drop the pretence of being Liberal.

Reviewing the year 2018, one is struck by the fact that it was turning point with the far-Left drop kicking the mask concealing their true authoritarian ideals. There are times when one feels compelled to write about certain subjects or choose certain items for lists and other compilations. Last December, one New Year’s resolution was to stop complimenting Leftists with the term ‘Liberal’. While being an ongoing issue, it didn’t seem that prevalent. Never the less, there seemed to be a certain sense of being ‘guided’ to add this to the list. Little did we know that it turned out to be quite prescient in that 2018 was the year the Socialist-Left turned their back on Liberty.

The new year started like most others in the midst of a cold winter for those in more mountainous or northern climes due to the ravages of Global cooling.. er.. Global Warming because there is nothing like the planet becoming colder due to the planet getting hotter, at least for one hemisphere.

It was mid February when an event took place that was pivotal in the far Left’s relationship to freedom. After local law enforcement dropped the ball in dealing with a troubled teenager and failed to protect the children, the Parkland mass murder tragedy took place, becoming the top news story of the year, according to a survey by the associated press.

A perfect ‘Serious crisis’ to help those hostile to Liberty.

The crisis was a ‘perfect storm’ bringing forth a small group of teenagers of the correct political persuasion. Old enough to be exploited by the Liberty grabber groups, but young enough that any legitimate criticism of them would be akin to attacking ‘children’. The ‘March for our lives’ movement seemed to spring up almost overnight, with a little help from the usual suspects in the gun confiscation groups.

These ‘serious crisis’ have always been exploited by those who keep up the pretext of being ‘Liberal’ while working to squeeze the Life out of Liberty. The lists of Leftists demanding gun confiscation always seem to have quite a few centred around these crises. It has always been their MO to make the false claim of the ‘easy access’ to guns, get whatever constrictions they can on our freedom and then patiently wait for the next serious crisis they can exploit to make the very same assertions.

For some reason, this event changed all that. In much the same way that political campaigns have become permanent cultural fixtures. This launched a permanent campaign to evince a design to the Left’s ultimate goal of gun confiscation.

Expanding the attack on Liberty.

The main feature of this ‘serious crisis’ was that it caused the far-Left to snap and widen their assault on Liberty. They used to just assail the commonsense human right of self-defense, this time around they expanded the attack on other rights that are supportive of self-preservation. Soon enough, YouTube began taking down videos on various innocuous aspects of Gunsmithing. Various corporations of a Leftist authoritarian bent began trying to dictate the extent of our civil rights by refusing to sell certain types of perfectly ordinary and legal firearms. As well as arbitrarily deciding who can buy firearms based on age.

Then of course there was the ‘March for our lives’ event last spring. Hordes of adults being cast as children by the media finally being open and honest about dictating the limits of our Liberty and of course gun confiscation. The watchword was on 21st century weapons, even though most of these originated in the previous two. But then again, the Liberty grabber Left has never let the facts get in the way of a good emotional appeal devoid of the truth.

Gun Confiscation SWATing with so-called ‘Red-Flag’ laws.

On the governmental side of the Left’s offense on freedom, politicians on all levels hit on the concept of Gun Confiscation SWATing with so-called ‘Red-Flag’ laws. Whereby those deemed ‘dangerous’ or just guilty of ‘thoughtcrime’ by a select few could suddenly find themselves at the blunt end of a battering ram with the government breaking down their door to confiscate their means of self-defense. Never mind that most jurisdictions already had laws covering this problem.

Often times, certain vestiges of culture can become codified in law when exploited by Leftists trying to enhance their raw political power. Such is the case with Gun Confiscation SWATing. What began as a way of someone attempting revenge by falsifying caller ID data, telephoning in a report to law enforcement to as to get a response via a SWAT team. Has morphed into an official set of laws making it possible for people such as neighbours or friends to deprive someone of their property without Constitutional protection of due process or even their knowledge until it’s too late. This has already resulted in the death the of one man for the ‘crime’ of possessing a means of self-defense.

Going after the right of self-defense with a flanking attack on freedom.

It was only after the Parkland tragedy that the Left decided that the best way of making self-defense illegal was by going after other freedoms that undergird this basic human right. Social media companies began implementing draconian politics to suppress free-speech that verges on guns or other verboten subjects.

True to form, a Leftist politician chose to try to exploit this trend codifying that one must submit to a ‘thoughtcrime’ investigation to exercise a basic human right. Presumably, one is only ‘allowed’ to have these God given rights if one has the correct way of thinking.

The Left also wants the banks to control your freedom.

Then in a last outrageous development for the year, the New York times outlined how it wants private businesses in the form of certain financial institutions to police the credit card purchases of those desirous of their Constitutional and natural rights. In addition to all the national, state and local laws that already infringe on the right of self-preservation, New York times in it’s infinite wisdom would like banks to look over the shoulder of private citizens and decide the limits of their Liberty.

The Takeaway.

What began with a low-level issue of the Left exploiting a word to create the false impression of support of Liberty. Has transitioned to one where they have made a mockery of the concept.

The right of self-defense is the bedrock of Liberty. One cannot exercise any other rights if the Left has a monopoly on the use of force. Those who love the pretence of supposedly being Liberal, have made it their life’s work in depriving the people of its most fundamental aspect. They’ve expanded their attack to the other freedoms that are mutually supportive of this right, no doubt this will intensify in the new year.

Not even close: Socialism isn’t about social media, being social or ‘sharing’

Not even close Socialism isnt about social media being social or sharing

Leftists would like their label for organised evil to mean something other than subjugation and mass murder.

We tend to avoid making light of America’s favourite socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez [aka ‘AOC’] from the rationale that when someone is making a mistake it’s best to just get out of their way. However in this case, this is not about the women whose antics will cause her ideology of organised evil to be laughed from the pantheon of practical governmental forms. This is about an adorable 8-year-old and perfect her impression of Ms. Cortez, specifically the point that socialism isn’t about being ‘social’, ‘social media’ or ‘sharing’.

For those who haven’t seen this viral video, it’s a perfect rendition of ‘AOC’ and her ruminations on climate change and socialism.

In light of this adorable impression, we will take this occasion to eviscerate what seems to be a very odd understanding of some basic words on the part of the National Socialist-Left.

Socialism is not about being ‘social’

No doubt this partially arose from certain elements who like to weaponize words to maximum effect. First principles hold that politics can be considered to be of the two basic forms: Individualism or Collectivism. With priority given to either the Individual or the collective.

Liberals, Conservatives and Libertarians favour the rights and freedoms of the Individual. Certain civil Liberties such as the common sense human right of self-defence stems from this first principle.
Even though it may at first blush seem counterintuitive, the individual striving to improve themselves and their lot always tends to do the same for everyone else. As stated in The Wealth of Nations:

‘It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our necessities but of their advantages.’ – Adam Smith

Conversely speaking, Collectivism is the other basic form whereby the group is favoured over the Individual. In point of fact, since a group is merely an arbitrary aggregation of individuals with no true form, the result is that it cannot have any true civil Liberties. This is exemplified by the treatment of the common sense human right of self-defence. Whereby the principle ‘collective’ rights is applied, meaning there is no Liberty in this regard.

Individualism is vastly superior to Collectivism

Collectivists like to phrase their construct of one of the labels of their base ideology as simply adding the suffix ‘ism’ to their idea of ‘social’ or group dynamics to make ‘social+ism’. Even though this word has come to signify the worst excesses in authoritarianism.

The problem is that when the ‘rights’ of group are prioritized, the rights of the individual disappear. Despite the window dressing of supposedly being ‘Liberal’, the Collectivist-Left only sees the group as having importance. Individuals become disposable to the whims of the collective. This is how the Left terms idea of self-defence as unimportant and how they end up will millions of dead individuals.

Socialism is not about ‘sharing’

Despite being extremely late to the party of collectivist ideological thought, Karl Marx did imbue one of the lines that epitomises it’s base principles with the saying: ‘From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.’

Sharing has to be a voluntary process. Such is not the case with socialism where that ‘From each according to his abilities’ is done at the point of a gun. This is why the Collectivist-Left obsesses over the disarming of individuals with Liberty control aka ‘Gun Reform’.

The Takeaway

Leftists love to exploit the language to hide their true base ideological intent. This is why they use words like ‘socialism’ or ‘Liberal’. They cannot be honest about what they truly want: control over everyone.

Thus, they have to pretend that ‘socialism’ means being social or sharing instead of an ideology that is truly organised evil at its core.

John 16:33 – ‘ye shall have tribulation’

John 16:33 ye shall have tribulation

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. – John 16:33 (KJV)

One of the most confused and misunderstood verses in the Bible is John 16:33. In it, Yeshua comforts His disciples as well as those in all all generations of the upcoming tribulation. He tells than that they will have tribulation. They will be tested. The will be persecuted. The good news is that they will not have to overcome the tribulations as those in the past have had to overcome.

Yeshua has already overcome the world. Regardless of what tribulations come, we are protected through faith. As long as we stay true to Yeshua as Lord and Savior and do the Will of the Father through until death, we will be saved. In the past, the Will of the Father was based upon our responses and how we handled persecution. Once Christ was resurrected, we no longer had the same burden. We need only to look to Yeshua and believe on Him as our salvation through the tribulations and we can be saved.

Incidentally, this is one of the verses commonly used to fight the concept of a pre-tribulation rapture. While it is clear He is talking to His disciples, it’s a message that transcends time and acts as a reminder that we don’t need to worry about the problems in the world. We simply need to walk through the narrow gate.

CNN does 67 updates for Sri Lanka story with ZERO mentions blaming Islamic terrorists

CNN does 67 updates for Sri Lanka story with ZERO mentions blaming Islamic terrorists

The narrative has already been set by American mainstream media on how they’re supposed to handle the Sri Lanka terrorist attacks on Easter Sunday. There are certain things that can be said and others that must be avoided at all costs. With reporting that has spanned nearly 24 hours and included 67 updates to the story, guess how many times CNN blamed Islamic terrorists for the attack.

If you guessed anything higher than zero, you gave CNN way too much credit.

I scanned the entire series of live updates they’ve been doing since the news broke. It’s all within one long story, making it easy to search for individual words, so I did. The results were depressing but expected. Even at this late hour, they still have not acknowledged the possibility that the act was committed by Islamic terrorists.

The closest they came to blaming radical Islamic terrorists in their primary coverage story was a mention in a quote by Diplomatic editor Nic Robertson in which he notes the obvious – that it has the “hallmarks” of Islamic terrorism – but then quickly notes that there are no known radical Islamic terrorist groups in the area.

“It is a very confused picture in terms of who may or may not be responsible. The Sri Lankan civil war ended 10 years ago, a 25 year long civil war, and the Tamil separatists there were a secular group. It would be very, very unlike them and their tactics ever to attack churches and particularly on such a holy day.”

“It has the hallmarks — or is intended to have the hallmarks — of Islamic extremists. But, again, these kinds of groups are unknown in Sri Lanka.”

This last notion is absolutely untrue, of course, as we now know the Chief of Police in Sri Lanka issued a warning about the Nations Thawahid Jaman (NTJ), an Islamist group led by Mohomad Saharan.

The CNN report mentioned the word “Muslim” four times: twice to note the percentage of the population of Sri Lanka that is Muslim, once to warn against reprisals against Muslims, and another to note there have been attacks against Muslims by Buddhist groups. Not once was it even speculated the attacks were carried out by Muslims.

The leftist narrative must be maintained and CNN will not break their allegiances. This was just some people that did something. It may look like an apple, but CNN will scream “banana, banana, banana” for as long as they can.
