Nothing secedes like secession

‘Hello, we must be going.’ — Groucho Marx

“We no longer have a Constitution.” 

That is what many of our friends and allies are saying after the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday 12-11-20 refused to  overturn the presidential election.

What they lack in constitutional acumen they make up for in chutzpah, our friends! They know the Constitution better than the Supreme Court. Not just the liberal wing but of all nine — six of them appointed by Republicans, three of them by Donald Trump!

Some have suggested declaring “marshall” law. The military should conduct a do over. Bayonets drawn.

Clearly, their greater loyalty is to Donald Trump than to the Constitution. However decrepit is Joe Biden, however liberal the Democrats, mendacious the news media, or relentless the attempts to delegitimize the Trump presidency — our guy lost the election. Election officials did bend the rules — perhaps, illegally. They should be punished. But there is little evidence those ballots did not represent real voters.

⇒ Is it so hard to believe that a man so wantonly abrasive as Donald Trump might lose an election?

18 states

The 18 red states signing on to the Texas appeal

Hail Trumpania!

Now our friends (for they ARE our friends) are talking secession. They are yellow highlighting the part in the Declaration of Independence that reads: “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive … it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and to institute new government.”

Texas GOP Chair Allen West calls for new “union of law-abiding states.”

Most likely, that more perfect union would look like the 18 states that signed on to Texas A.G. Ken Paxton’s hail mary of a court case. (Is the guy angling for Trump’s pardon?) Those states run up to the Dakotas and through the Old South to Florida in a solid block but also includes four non-contiguous states: Utah, Indiana, West Virginia, and South Carolina.

This might be a problem but it is not unprecedented. At one time, Pakistan and Bangladesh were united by religion and ethnicity but separated by India. The 18 secessionist states are the United States of  Trump. We shall call that entity, Trumpania. (Rhymes with Queen Melania.)

It’s not just Allen West. On the other side of the political aisle, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) accuses the 120 House Republicans who sided with A.G. Paxton of supporting a rebellion against the United States. He wants the 120 to be blocked from taking their seats in Congress.

How soon before members of Congress beat each other with canes?

Tiny bubbles

The Werkes despairs of the Madison bubble. Too many of our friends live in their own bubble. If Fox news reports the other side, switch to NewsMax. Erick-Woods Erickson writes: “When all you consume is the media that tells you what you want to hear and all your friends believe the same thing you believe, what is true does not matter. What you believe is true is all that matters.

I am truly disappointed with my own side for the hucksterism, lies, and denial of reality. … They cannot appreciate the real world around them and live now in a fantasy land of grievance, theft of elections, and mythology. … Some good friends have even signed a letter wanting multiple states to ignore their voters and appoint replace electors to the Electoral College. It is disappointing to see.

Notice something? No one is breaking windows, looting stores, or pulling down statues. Now imagine if Biden/Harris had lost!

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Time to move on from denial to grieving and thence to a comeback. Investigate Hunter. Prosecute the Russia Collusion hoaxers. Shame the mendacious institutional news media. Win Georgia’s senators!

Are YOU singing “Dixie”?

    If an oligarchy of godless globalist elites is emerging that runs roughshod over the established rules of the Constitution… is it even accurate to say America still has a right to call itself a Republic?

    If America generally abandons a Representative Republican model of government, is Texas, (or any other God and Country-loving State) under any obligation to follow the low-flow, Luditte-like, lockstep Lefty lemmings down that self-destructive path?

    It’s an interesting question with a HELL of a lot of implications, no matter how you slice it.

    At the heart of them all is a question our Founding Fathers themselves were so familiar, governing with … The Consent Of The Governed. There will always be some people who want to pull the trigger on a TEXIT decision, and some who will be so timid they would sooner let themselves be ground into the dust than take a more dangerous, risky path on the moral and ethical high ground.

    But somewhere between those two points, is a line that most regular, normal, reasonable patriots might cross and become a hill to die on. The question is, are we there yet? Are the divisions between red and blue states so sharp and irreconcilable that they can no longer be bridged?

    Texit — Yes or No?
    Yes. Cut the Leftist looney-toon bastards loose before they take us down with them.
    No. The American Dream of being a beacon of liberty to the rest of the world, a shining city on a hill… all of it, … is worth fighting for.

I like the fact that when one of your neighbors has a medical problem that other neighbors will step in and take care of mowing the lawn or doing the snow removal. I like knowing that when I lived out in the country that when a farmer was hurt other farmers would step in and milk the cows, feed the animals and do the other chores to be done so the family could spend time with him or her at the hospital.

    As it was so aptly recently pointed out by Good Dog, Happy Man, in the post: “We never thought it was a bad little tree”.

    “The hand of God was self-evident in our founding. When our Framers came to an impasse on ideology, language or an intractable problem and disagreement, Dr. Benjamin Franklin called for a prayer break in order to ask for Divine guidance. They met and prayed together. An hour later they reconvened and finished writing our Constitution.”

    I believe we have come to the point in time in the history of this great country where I must humbly submit to you my fellow citizens the idea that we must all fast and pray for Almighty God to give us the answers to what our country is going through today. We must all get down on our knees and pray for His Divine guidance at this time.

      Dad,

      There’s a good piece in today’s American Thinker that showed how the wrong-headed Dred Scott decision added fuel to the fire and actually pushed the country closer to The Civil War. Here’s a little taste:

      The Supremes taking a final pass on this destruction of embedded Constitutional principles is a passive-aggressive sin of omission and a direct attack on all honorable, trusting, American voters.

      Cue the Democrats because just like their defending slavery during the Dred Scott times when their party was fully on the side of horrific greed, the institution of slavery, their lust for power today knows no boundaries. Such morally blind behavior triggered the Civil War and it meant sacrificing their own youth. I guess having a legacy of defending slavery at all costs is still in their party’s DNA, only now modernized to defend at all costs, aided and abetted with their media enablers, the corrupted practices that were necessary for grand theft election.

    Just for fun, here’s an informed view of SCOTUS’ (non)-action from a long-time FBI agent who has been around the block a few times.

    “The SCOTUS order in the Texas case attempts to sidestep all that by simply denying Texas leave to file a complaint at all. The reason for that tactic is clear: to have allowed the complaint to be filed would have put the SCOTUS between a rock and a hard place, in Constitutional terms. However, the SCOTUS doesn’t deny that they have original jurisdiction over disputes between States, nor does it actually dare assert that entertaining such suits is discretionary with the SCOTUS–a very debatable proposition. Rather, it simply denies leave to file this particular complaint because–in their conclusory statement–the manner in which another State conducts its elections is none of Texas’ business–“Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest” is simply a barely polite legal way of saying: None of your business. No attempt is made to explain that rationale. In actual fact, Texas had articulated a clear Constitutional interest: violation of the election clause in Article II, Section 1, which harmed Texas’ interests in having its election fairly weighted in the electoral college.”

    If this guy were the ONLY one in the country with that opinion, we could write him off with sympathetic noises.

    But eighteen other AG’s joined that suit. Are they all idiots, or mere Trump polemicists? You prepared to tell them that to their faces?

      In my opinion this is the heart of the matter. We, the American People need to know that all of our votes were counted correctly. That the dead did not vote. Nor did the illegal aliens. Nor did ghost voters vote in our election. We need to know that all votes that were counted were legal votes.

      As of this writing, I am not sure at all that only legal votes were counted.

    Corporate media has made a mockery of journalism. They lie, twist, omit, manipulate, and cherry pick.

    Here’s an excellent excerpt from an American Spectator article about why Fox’s ratings are takings. It has little to do to being immune to the truth.

    “Watched fake objective anchor Chris Wallace transform into a rabid Trump-sniping chipmunk. Watched normally staid anchor Melissa Francis block Newt Gingrich from linking George Soros to riot-supportive blue state AGs. Watched business anchor Neil Cavuto cut off a White House press conference because he disapproved of Kayleigh McEnany’s address. Watched them call Arizona for Biden on Election Night before anyone else did, with the final count still days away. Watched them call a Democratic House expansion before the party lost many seats instead. Watched them call the election for Biden and refer to him as president-elect minus any official recognition. Watched them ridicule the Trump campaign’s perfectly valid remedial fight, with reporter Kristin Fisher openly insulting the Trump legal team’s press conference. Read the tweet by Kathryn Murdoch, wife of Fox News co-owner James Murdoch (son of Rupert), on Biden’s apparent victory, stating, “We did it.”

      This nation is already too divided to be put back together, and it’s an insult to the right and the GOP to bow now to pious platitudes about unity from the very people who spent five years dividing it and hating and insulting them with gusto. Do you honestly believe that Joe Biden is a unifier who can put the nation back together?

      He isn’t a “great communicator” like Reagan, or a guy you can’t help but like like (ugh) Clinton. He isn’t even a charismatic empty suit like Obama. He brings together the worst of the last few presidents: the halting cadence of GWB, the fakery of Clinton, the fading acuity of Reagan in his last year and a half, the indecisiveness of Obama, with none of their good qualities. He is an old white guy, so the media can’t worship him as a young cool, hip black guy. He can’t go playing hoops with his aides or even jogging with his SS agents. It’s already well known that he’s a creep who can’t keep his hands to himself, although I’m sure the media will bury Tara Reid so deep she’ll be able to reach up and order Shanghai takeout. He’s sure as hell no law and order guy, in fact he wants to do away with the Federal death penalty (which is a pretty tall order). He’s certainly no inspirational commander-in-chief, I’d be very afraid to see him try to helm any kind of military action.

      Know what else he isn’t? He isn’t principled. He was all-in for Bill Clinton’s 1994 crime bill that hired thousands of cops, built new prison cells, and made it easier to apply the Federal death penalty, and he even said this was the left speaking then. Now he had not a single law enforcement group back him, he wants to do away with the death penalty generally, and he’s all-in with Black Lives Matter and defund the police, (but let’s keep that quiet until after January 5). He was also pretty consistently pro-life, and publicly personally opposed to abortion as recently as 2012. Now he’s all-in with abortion whenever wherever. I could go on, but I think you get the point. The man will do or say or not do or not say whatever it takes to get a vote. There’s a certain amount of compromising and bending that’s necessary in politics, but the fact is he doesn’t stand for anything, and, as Peter Marshall said memorably, if you stand for nothing you will fall for anything.
