Briefly Noted: About The Lindsey Docs

 What's to say?

This just isn't serious. For example:

Hoax narratives, hoax investigations--the only thing real is the coverup. The samples I've seen go on and on in the same vein. Relevant questions not asked, no challenges of patent obfuscation. The witnesses were clearly not afraid to mislead or even lie to the Senate. Bear in mind, many of these witnesses were not powerful people or people with powerful friends. In the DC scheme of things they were basically the little people who had done what they were told to do. They're protecting people above them.

Briefly Noted: Farmer Gates--EE-I-EE-I-O!

Just one of those weird things about life in the 21st:

Bill Gates Becomes America's Largest Farmland Owner While 'Great Reset" Says Future Is 'No Private Property'

Are these Globalists hiding the ball from us? According to Forbes:

“After years of reports that he was purchasing agricultural land in places like Florida and Washington, The Land Report revealed that Gates, who has a net worth of nearly $121 billion according to Forbes, has built up a massive farmland portfolio spanning 18 states.”

“His largest holdings are in Louisiana (69,071 acres), Arkansas (47,927 acres) and Nebraska (20,588 acres). Additionally, he has a stake in 25,750 acres of transitional land on the west side of Phoenix, Arizona, which is being developed as a new suburb.”

And he's not the only one:

Important: It's Not Just Censorship

If you read one thing today, make it Lee Smith's latest--the whole thing:

It’s Not Censorship, It’s a Coordinated Effort

A time to strengthen families and communities

It's a simple point, really, like most important truths. What's going on currently goes beyond censorship alone--the censorship has to be understood in the broader context of the crisis of legitimacy that the American regime has been struggling through for several decades now. We've emphasized this point--the importance of understanding the concepts of legitimacy and authority--over the last several months.

The reason censorship--heavy handed and visible--has become necessary, in place of the less visible forms of social manipulation that were used in the past is because, despite the Uniparty regime's best efforts, assisted by its Tech and Media allies, is that Trump's unprecedented turnout has challenged the regime's legitimacy in an authoritative way. People are seeking, and finding, alternate centers of authority, and those centers of authority have allowed people to credibly challenge the regime's legitimacy. The other hoax efforts of the last four years have definitively failed, replaced now with fully armed boots and armored Humvees on the ground. Censorship is simply a part of that desperate, but misguided, effort to fool the people one more time.

With that intro, here are some of Smith's high points. Please pay attention to his closing recommendation. Every regime in crisis seeks to isolate individuals from one another, to break down human bonds in society that provide the type of alternate source of authority and legitimacy that constitute an existential threat to the regime. Those social bonds have been gradually dissolving in America, replaced by a one on one dependence on government. One of the few remaining secondary institutions that have preserved some degree of independence and ability to provide authoritative interpretations of of reality at variance with regime approved narratives are those of organized religion. Those institutions are now threatened as never before by the Covid hoax lockdowns. They need to be revived. We cannot rise to this challenge as disjoined individuals. Social solidarity needs to be restored on an authoritative basis.

Sobering Thoughts On A Friday Morning. Plus ...

Christopher Roach has an overall insightful article today at American Greatness. It won't astound you with brand new ideas, but it's put together well and reinforces the perceptions that many commenters have been offering. Certainly there's a close kinship to the ideas that Tucker Carlson, for example, has been offering for some time now:

A MAGA Bay of Pigs

After the lockdowns and election issues of 2020, the MAGA movement is now a full-on “anti-regime” movement rather than a Trump-focused one. 

I recommend it all, but here are some excerpts that were, for me, highlights. First, Roach sets the stage:

The domestic spying, impeachment, and election irregularities of the Trump presidency matter because of what they tell us about the managerial system. All the public talk of democracy is for show; the whole point of the bureaucracy and the party system is to prevent any popular, democratic movement that would threaten the ruling class’ privileges. 

As President Trump put it, “They don’t hate you because they hate me. They hate me because they hate you.” 


I'll skip over Roach's analysis of January 6. Here, in what follows and following on from his intro, he gets to the heart of where conservatives are at this point in history vis a vis the ruling class:

UPDATED: Ya Gotta Luv A Bit Of Martial Law Theater

This is so great--the razor wire is such a nice touch. The whole theatrical bit wouldn't be complete without it:

I mean, when it comes to a hoax overreaction this has to rank right up there with Covid. 

Will I have to eat those words? Hey, what's life without a bit of risk?

UPDATE: Jennifer Zeng at New Tang Dynasty comments: "Looks like a prison now." Weird, that.

Just adding this because it caused me to LOL:

Open Up!

 As if on cue ...

Next up, maybe: A coherent explanation for a vaccine for an ever changing virus? And why effective remedies had to be--still have to be--suppressed. Is it because without dead people the lockdown couldn't have been sold to a fearful public?

Solomon: Trump Orders Declass Of ALL FBI Russia Hoax Docs

 Pretty much just breaking news. The documents should be available in 24-48 hours:

Solomon is saying that the docs comprise a huge stack--a foot or foot and a half thick, and that there will be bombshell revelations. For example, having listened to his 9 minute podcast, Solomon offers some sneak previews. ...

The Steele debriefing documents will contain many bombshells. The primary revelation, however, will be that--as Steele explains--the entire Russia Hoax narrative was created and leaked to the news media specifically to neutralize Hillary Clinton’s concern that her email scandal hadn’t gone away. The whole Russia Hoax was predicated on a political dirty trick.

Here's another major revelation. As suspected, Steele didn't have any sources worth anything--that was all just BS. His "main sub source" was "delivered to Steele by Fiona Hill."

There will be "all kinds of revelations about Stefan Halper." Solomon believes that written "tasking orders" to Halper will show that the FBI fully intended to spy on the Trump campaign. Halper was codenamed "Mitch". He was instructed to join Trump campaign if possible and to target specific people, like Sam Clovis, George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, and others.

A final preview:

In December 2015 the FBI was warned by the CIA that Steele had too many contacts with Russian oligarchs and they ought to reevaluate their use of him as a confidential informant. The rest is history! They didn't do that. Instead, the FBI gave Steele sensitive information, despite the CIA warning that he might be compromised.

This should be interesting, and should set a certain tone for the Biden Inc. regime. Solomon promises more soon.

Meanwhile, what's-his-name promises that virtually his first act--first day--will be a Tranny EO to let boys into girls' restrooms. Which will get more attention? I'm betting on declass.


How To Turn Victory Into Defeat

Suppose you were leader of a major political party, albeit the minority one, in Congress. Suppose further that a goofball in your leadership team tried to help impeach the President--a member of your own party. Finally, suppose that influential members of your party demanded that member be dumped from her leadership position. Here's how you could turn what looks like a victory into an own goal: you could protect the goofball member. I kid you not.

Trump said people would get tired of winning. Right again.

Wait A Minute: Lethal Force Authorized For Guard In DC?

It appears the DC Establishment is totally freaking out. This, from the US News:

National Guard at Capitol Authorized to Use Lethal Force in Aftermath of Mob

Can you say: Grotesque overreaction? But here it is:

THE 20,000 NATIONAL Guard troops preparing for pro-Trump demonstrations this weekend in the nation's capital will be armed and permitted to use lethal force, the headquarters overseeing them says, marking a striking escalation in the way authorities there are preparing for repeat violence after last week's deadly mob.

"On January 12, 2021, National Guardsmen were given authorization to be armed in support of the U.S. Capitol Police to protect the U.S. Capitol and individual members of Congress and their staff," according to a statement from the D.C. National Guard, which is commanding Guard forces in the city, including units deployed from six other states, to provide security for President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration next week.

A defense official confirmed the authorization includes permission for Guard troops to use lethal force.

The request came from federal authorities and was approved by Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy ...

This only enhances the look of the Imperial City on the Potomac circling the wagons against the nation it rules. Someone is seriously out of touch.

Deep State Debacle In DC?

No doubt the Deep State thought they had a really excellent plan for their very own domestic Color Revolution--call it the Orange Man Coup. But things started to go wrong before midnight on Election Day, when the mind-blowing tidal wave of support for Trump forced the realization that truly drastic measures would be needed to install the basement dwelling Biden Inc. "Big Guy" in the White House.  Multiple anomalies in state after state all pointed to a massive fiddle, and--despite the assurances of disgraced former AG Bluto Barr--We The People just weren't buying that the election had gone according to Hoyle. Even now, two months later, some number approaching half the population believes the election was a hoax or a fraud, and if you add in those who think a major inquiry is warranted your break the 50% mark. Meanwhile, despite the Deep State's best efforts to mount Trump on a rail and run him out of DC, his approval ratings are doing just fine, thank you. Nothing seems to be going quite according to plan.

Meanwhile, the 74 millions who turned out for Trump--not satisfied with simply mailing it in--have continued to follow the events, angry at what they've learned. The realization of what went down has led to a situation that Shipwreckedcrew discusses:

The Actions of the Establishment Interests in Washington Reflect Fear of the Political Coalition Formed By Donald Trump

Here, with some creative editing, is what I take to be the gist of SWC's thesis (the whole thing is a good read):

UPDATED: Briefly Noted: AT Disables Commenting

Many, perhaps most, of you check in regularly at American Thinker. If so, you may have seen the following notice:

It is news to almost nobody who reads American Thinker that a political witch hunt is underway. Parties in and out of government are looking for excuses to suppress and destroy voices that oppose the left.

Because AT lacks the ability to monitor comments in real time, and because our position that comments are a forum, not something that we publish, is being called into question, we can no longer publish comments.

We take this action with a heavy heart.

I assume that this decision was probably occasioned by threat and/or intimidation from Leftist internet vigilantes, rather than any government agency. No doubt they seized on irresponsible comments by the usual keyboard kommando types who lack a clue about the limits of the 1st Amendment. It's a sad day for the country when the free exchange of ideas is curtailed in this way--it's a victory for the forces of repression.

UPDATE: Andrea Widburg has an important article at American Thinker about a young man who lost a job, in his telling, because a third party (the National Hockey League) objected to his employer (Private Jet Services) hiring someone who had worked for the Trump campaign. Obviously this type of activity relates to freedom of speech as well as association. Yes, this happened in the public realm, so government action wasn't involved, but coordinated campaigns to curtail speech and association are highly threatening to a free society when they are backed up by Big Data methods and capabilities. Constitutional considerations based in the age of the pamphlet and the printing press become small consolation and dubious safeguards, since a vibrant Public Square must be the basis for our freedoms. Political monopolies over the Public Square can be nearly as dangerous as government action:

The public sector purge is beginning

Read it all. Here is Widburg's conclusion:

UPDATED: Go Ahead--Spit Into The Wind

Red State has an article up titled: Poll Reveals Democrats Pushing Impeachment Are Spitting In The Wind. It's a discussion of the results of a John McLaughlin Poll, which is covered in detail at the Washington Examiner. As you'll see, the poll covers more than just the impeachment. It was conducted before the latest impeachment, but also included questions on the Dem censorship drive:

Exclusive: 60% call impeachment a ‘waste of time,’ Big Tech backlash for censoring Trump

Here are the findings:
