MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
Today, I woke up to watching the senate being abruptly shut down because protesters had breached the Capitol building. They were there to certify the Electoral College vote.
It looked like something out of a movie where the President is told that he has to vacate the White House because of some nebulous danger., Vice President Mike Pence was ushered quickly out of the Senate chamber as it recessed and the debate between senators had to stop mid-speech. A member of the Senate told NBC News that Pence and Sen. Charles Grassley, the president pro-tempore, have been taken to a secure location.
The Vice President refused President Donald Trump’s demand that he try to block the confirmation of Joe Biden’s election as the next president of the United States by Congress.
It was seen as an Et Tu Brute moment for Trump – as I had reported the night before – I never really thought that Pence was in Trump’s camp m he seemed to be an apologist for him with loyalties elsewhere.
Pence said in a letter that he did not believe, as Trump has claimed, that a vice president has the uniltateral power to reject Electoral College votes for a candidate.
“It is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not,” Pence wrote in his three-page letter addressed to members of Congress.
His dramatic break from Trump came minutes before the Republican vice president began presiding over a joint session of Congress, which is meeting to declare the former Democratic vice president Biden the victor.
Pence said in his letter that he shared “the concerns of millions of Americans about the integrity of this election,” which Trump and his supporters have claimed was corrupted by widespread ballot fraud.
But Pence also wrote that “vesting the Vice President with unilateral authority to decide presidential contests would be entirely antithetical to” the system of check-and-balances between branches of the government designed by the framers of the Constitution.
“When disputes concerning a presidential election arise, under Federal law, it is the people’s representatives who review the evidence and resolve disputes through a democratic process.”
Trump less than two hours later blasted Pence for his action.
“Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify,” Trump wrote in a tweet.
“USA demands the truth!”
The media is calling it an insurrection and it resulted to an armed standoff. Windows at the capitol building were shattered and it was reported that a woman was shot.
They were calling it treason and that this is where we are looking down the barrel of civil war.
I was getting tweets filling up my phone screen where people were calling these people rats, vermin and deplorables.
It was ironic because these same people were the ones that championed Antifa when they were responsible for burning down our cities.
We are a nation that is at war – The American experiment appears to be over – and whatever happens next is certainly an indication of dark days ahead with a plate of vengeance that will be served cold to those who tapped danced on that frayed nerve of those who see themselves as patriots.
The right or wrong here is not an issue – the fight is against a paramoral threat that is external and there needs to be a consolidated effort to restore our constitutional republic.
Science. Politics. Religion. Interpersonal relationships. There is no sphere of human study, thinking, belief or behavior that isn’t affected in some way shape or form by what we believe to be true or false.
That’s what it all boils down to. And yet doing the work to understand ourselves and the world in which we live is no small task – as we are constantly being presented with policies, ideas and perspectives that present this challenge to us in increasingly, significant and meaningful ways. And made all the more important for their intensity and wide-spread ramifications.
We have reached a point in this nation where the end justifies the means and in order to accomplish the goal of destroying our nation, an action of paramorality is in play.
It must be stressed that the paramorality in play is always an inversion of the prevailing morality that is also parasitic upon it — this is what Nietzsche called the slave morality. It is the morality forced upon those that will be reduced to peasants. Then we will see an apocalyptic morality that is ever present in our zombie fiction stories like “the Walking Dead.”
It is a particular type of perversion of morality that can feel more moral than moral but is, in fact, evil. This is because the paramorality acts in service to a pseudo-reality, not reality, and is thus the domain of psychopathy, which, when inflicted on the normal masses, is evil. The goal of the paramorality will always arise from and exist to favor people with particular psychopathologies who cannot otherwise cope with the discomforts of reality. This implies that an ideological pseudo-reality’s most successful means of gaining strength is through appealing to the perceived victimhood of those people and whipping up the grievances of those who have suffered similar injustices with more dignity. When widely empowered, this should be treated as another symptom of impending civilizational calamity and a need to identify and reject the pseudo-reality manipulating these feelings.
Today, we are brought back full circle and we are reminded again that Americans can’t get enough of politics—or the media can’t get enough of dogging Trump and so we see the baiting and extension of just how far they can troll the people.
The general election of 2020 will be the stuff of argument and analysis for many years to come, here and abroad. Suffice to say that a panicky over-reaction to the onset of the COVID-19 virus produced economic hardship and social disorder, compounded by months of riots, looting and arson afflicting hundreds of cities almost all of them Democrat-governed beginning in late May 2020.
All of this set the stage for an election won overwhelmingly on November 3rd by President Donald Trump and then lost by him in the following weeks to his Democrat opponent Joseph Biden. As dumps of hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots appeared in dubious circumstances amidst widespread allegations of fraud and lawsuits challenging the outcome the war has been brewing. Not just between the right and the left but secret haters of America that wish to plunge a knife into the body and drain it of its very soul.
If it all goes as planned totalitarianism will replace nationalism—and those that support totalitarianism will not even see themselves as authoritarian cultists.
Imperceptibly, it becomes your reality. You do not recognize that you are in it, because everything you see is part of it, and everyone you know is in it … except for the others, who are not part of it. The “deniers.” The “deviants.” The “foreigners.” The “strangers.” The “Covidiots.” The “virus spreaders.”
See, although the narratives and symbols may change, totalitarianism is totalitarianism. It doesn’t really matter which uniform it wears, or which language it speaks … it is the same abomination. It is an idol, a simulacrum of the hubris of man, formed from the clay of the minds of the masses by megalomaniacal spiritual cripples who want to exterminate what they cannot control.
And what they want to control is always everything.
Everything that reminds them of their weakness and their shame.
Unfortunately, once this kind of thing gets started, and reaches the stage we are currently experiencing, more often than not, it does not stop, not until cities lie in ruins or fields are littered with human skulls. It might take us ten or twelve years to get there, but, make no mistake, that’s where we’re headed, where totalitarianism is always headed.
Whatever happens next, you can bank on the idea that the United States us fast hurling itself towards dystopia.
You can cry from the rafters that Trump was a genius at tyranny – however tyranny should not be synonymous with bellicose. Yes he got loud and obnoxious and many people wanted to hate him – but make no mistake it was a clever democratic strategy that has put us on the brink of civil war. Since May the so-called extreme left was throwing a war every night and nobody came to fight back, now the silent arrived in Washington DC to make their statement and now it will be the moment of truth.
The Democrats had “on call” large numbers of left-wing and/or paid Antifa and Black Lives Matter street fighters with a demonstrated proclivity for violence and a willingness to use the tools of rioting, looting, arson and intimidation for months on end.
This should never be in dispute, however, the media went out of their way to pretend that none of this was happening. Me and my crew were eyewitnesses– we would broadcast our show literally at Ground Zero as the protesters would set fire and vandalize businesses that were less than a block away from our studios in Downtown Portland..
All over the United States, these people added to the disruption already caused by the over-reaction to the onset of COVID-19, doing their worst with little or no resistance from Democrat mayors and governors whose cities they looted and burned and often with the implicit or explicit approval of those officials. The hesitation and unwillingness of the President to do what these mayors and governors would not, and restore order, only emboldened these street fighters
While left wing political leaders and limousine elites were telling people to stay home and wear their masks – not one of them had the where with all to call out the protests as a super spreader events.
Gatherings at churches were prohibited, gatherings at bars and restaurants were prohibited. People would wonder why you could go to an Ikea or a Home Depot but not to church – or a restaurant or bar.
The real reason is obvious—in previous revolutions those who wanted to rise up would have their meetings in Churches and in pubs. They would gather in groups and plot. In the 21st century the left leaning color revolution was planned on social media platforms and funded by paramoral billionaires that have profited from the chaos,
It can be argued the right-wing revolution or rebellion was a grass roots effort that always spoke of taking back the country but it was not always clear what they were taking it back from – now it appears to be obvious.
The Democrats had on their side a mainstream and social media that was all but united in its opposition to President Trump and had been since at least 2016. For all intents and purposes, these platforms functioned as a propaganda arm of the Democrat National Committee
The DNC knew that no matter how much their candidate fumbled around, the media would conceal it from the American public, and no matter what Trump did well, to the American people he would be condemned. The media – especially the social media platforms – could be depended on to censor anyone raising differing views critical of Biden or the Democrats, and they did just that. And when there was precedent to investigate widespread and visible election fraud occurred in numerous states in the immediate aftermath of the general election, the media mimicked the three monkeys who neither saw nor heard nor especially said anything about it.
Ignoring the inquiries breeds mistrust and anger it breeds conspiracy theory and so let the guilty be exposed – the fomenting of civil war has always been the project of a resistance that was encouraged by the media.
This is a response to what has been called the resistance—the media now says this is hard to believe – what is so hard to understand? They should be held responsible as well.
As I have observed there will be a split and a fragmentation of all parties. The future will be bloody and chaotic.
We may see states split, and not along obvious geographical lines: the bluest of blue states have conservative sections, and most red states have large urban areas with black majorities that are Democrat strongholds. How Asians and Hispanics would split is anyone’s guess.
Add to this the reality that the military will split politically if not racially: The President can Federalize the National Guard but the National Guard in disaffected progressive states like Oregon and Washington may not all obey.
One shudders to think what other countries will do as this unfolds. We are vulnerable to outside incursion.
This type of conflict never really ends on its own, although external intervention might eventually bring that about. What we are seeing was inevitable and you are lying to yourself if you are surprised.
Those committed to the erasing of our history and the destruction of our culture and system of government have used the very freedoms we treasured to cloak their activities.
Looking back, Trump should have invoked the Insurrection Act back in June. Some of the governors and mayors that neglected to protect our cities should have been arrested. You can call what is happening today insurrection but what we tolerated in the spring was nothing less that sedition.
But it would have only bought time – it would have stunted the inevitable—but it would not have killed the anger.
This state of affairs is a potent weapon of demoralization in and of itself, and it lends itself to a particular impulse quite naturally — even necessarily. Our dystopia will not realize this being that it is an object of a set up for the great reset. Then we will see the world party’s iron grip on power, maintained at any cost and by any means. Lacking an objective standard of reference and being without a universally accessible in principle an appeal to reason, the discourse of the powerful and of power itself becomes ever more determinative. A unpredictable paralogic that defines as correct today but not necessarily tomorrow that which the Party says is right today but not necessarily tomorrow and a parallel paramorality that does the same trick upon what is right are superior as paralogic and paramorality, and thus they will be favored by the Party. The unfailing result is authoritarian retaliation from the globalist reset, ever the favored tool of dominance and totalitarianism.
The US is on the fast-track to self-destruction, and the more individuals who understand this, and why and who can prepare themselves and others for the future – the better off humanity will be as a whole when the opportunity avails itself to re-form and re-strengthen.
