Another FB Encounter

The latest in an occasional series of Facebook post encounters....

In this exchange, "JT" is responding to my posting of a link to John Whitehead's comprehensive article "Has the Dept of Homeland Security Become America's Standing Army?"...



JT:  You think the USA is a police state?
I might suggest you travel to a few police states. Like Sudan, where they amputate your tongue if you criticize
them. Or perhaps Iran, where they publicly hang dissidents from cranes. Or China, where they shoot them (and send a bill for the bullet to surviving relatives). How about North Korea, where "enemies of state" are fed to dogs. Ever try recommending Christianity to a Saudi? Just a few examples, Brian. Real-life experience in places like that might give you a little perspective on human rights. They certainly present some important targets for your thoughts and blogs.


My response....

You think the USA is a police state?” Actually, John Whitehead, The Rutherford Institute, wrote that. You might want to brush up on “Reading For Comprehension”. It could prove invaluable for someone with such a flaccid grasp on the subject.


As to your “comments”, I would agree with you – but then we’d both be wrong. I’ll leave the risks of international exposure to you and your apparent ex-patness. I suspect you have done few – if any - of the things you mention or you wouldn’t be inflicting your gaseous condescension on unsuspecting readers. Even you could basically comprehend one needn’t put himself at such (alleged) risk in order to have an informed opinion – although you may have indeed provided the exception. Regardless, not having Freedom is markedly different than losing it unnecessarily at the hands of liars and thieves in contravention of the Rule of Law, Constitutional limitations and human rights. But then, you don’t even live in America so your paucity of understanding and vacuous comments are infinitely dismissive. Maybe you could distribute your milk of humane concern for the dearth of human rights actually inside the countries you mentioned. The reality of losing your tongue has to be waaaay more instructive than just bloviating about it to others and might actually serve a useful purpose. Think of all the good you could do warning people about Sudan tourism with your prosaic writing skills.

A Timely Reminder

Originally posted just a few months ago, the crumbling of society has accelerated, exacerbated by an aggressively emboldened - or increasingly desperate - MSM to mis- and disinform anyone attempting to pay attention via their "News". Feel free to share with your friends, especially those having trouble with discernment. BW When searching for the reason why things go wrong, stop when you get to the Media. The Media is our Teacher. It's the whole world's teacher.    Everything we learn, we learn from the Media. With screens, cameras, actors and glib, well-coiffed hosts, radio and TV signals, cable, microwave, publishing, the all-powerful Internet with its own 'social media', it instructs us hourly, daily, weekly, month in, year out. The classroom is anywhere; it's ubiquitous. Class is in session even when school is closed. The course are Obedience, Submission, Conformity, Regimentation. There is no 'graduation'. There is no individual achievement, on

The Color of Crime

In the Age of BLM, here are some stats you may find informative - maybe even useful: • Black males age 18-35 years of age are only 1.8% of the U.S. population, yet have committed 52% of homicides from 1980-2008. Black males (all ages) are only 6% of the U.S. population, yet commit 46% of all violent crimes, and 50% of the gun homicides. If Blacks were removed from the equation, the U.S. gun homicide rate would be equal to Great Britain's, who have some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the world. • The Black homicide rate is 17 per 100,000, a rate over 9x that of the White rate, and comparable to some of those most murderous countries in the world. If the homicide rate for the U.S. were the White-only rate, the homicide rate would drop 84%, making the U.S. rate comparable to European countries. • According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics 2018 survey of criminal victimization, there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (ex

Dear Dr Fauci

NOTE: Linked below is the most comprehensive, direct, factual and professional peer-to-peer confrontation of Dr. Anthony Fauci I've seen. It's long. It poses direct questions to Fauci that likely reflect the same questions you have had - but not answered. There is no way this Open Letter can be construed as "conspiracy theory" or the product of a "special interest group" with a profit motive similar to the purported connections between Fauci and Bill Gates. Take the few minutes it will require to read and adsorb the entire piece. Yes, there are a few "medical" terms but nothing that will obscure the totality of the gauntlet thrown at the feet of Dr. Fauci. His various, often oblique or contradictory pronouncements taken as 'gospel' by power-crazed politicians have killed thousands, ruined businesses, even entire cities. Demand answers by writing directly to him directly and your various representatives. Share this with everyone yo
