With never-Trump conservatives bailing on the GOP and crying out for the Party of Pelosi to save us, some painful truths need to be restated.
The Republican Party of Bush I and II, of Bob Dole and John McCain, is history. It’s not coming back. Unlike the Bourbons after the Revolution and the Terror, after Napoleon and the Empire, no restoration is in the cards.
It is over. The GOP’s policies of recent decades — the New World Order of George H.W. Bush, the crusades for democracy of Bush II — failed, and are seen as having failed. With Trump’s capture of the party they were repudiated.
There will be no turning back.
The Declaration of Independence — which was signed on July 3, 1776, for public release on July 4 — was Thomas Jefferson’s masterpiece. Jefferson himself wrote much about the declaration in the 50 years that followed.
Not the least of what he wrote offered his view that the declaration and the values that it articulated were truly radical — meaning they reflected 180-degree changes at the very core of societal attitudes in America. The idea that farmers and merchants and lawyers could secede from a kingdom and fight and win a war against the king’s army was the end result of the multigenerational movement that was articulated in the declaration.
The two central values of the declaration are the origins of human liberty and the legitimacy of popular government.
When Jefferson wrote that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, he was referring to the natural law. The natural law teaches that right and wrong can be discerned and truth discovered by the exercise of human reason, independent of any commands from the government. The natural law also teaches that our rights come from our humanity — not from the government — and our humanity is a gift from our Creator.
Even those who question or reject the existence of the Creator — was Jefferson himself among them? — can embrace natural rights, because they can accept that our exercise of human reason leads us all to make similar claims. These claims — free speech, free association, free exercise or non-exercise of religion, self-defense, privacy, and fairness, to name a few — are rights that we all exercise without giving a second thought to the fact that they are natural and come from within us.
The view of the individual as the repository of natural rights was not accepted by any governments in 1776. In fact, all rejected it and used violence to suppress it. To the minds of those in government in the mid-18th century, the king was divine and could do no wrong, and parliament existed not as the people’s representatives but to help the king raise money and to give him a read on the pulse of landowners and nobility.
Jefferson and his colleagues had no difficulty breaking from this type of ancient regime. Unlike the French, who destroyed their monarchy, the American colonists seceded from theirs — and they did so embracing natural rights. Regrettably, they did not recognize natural rights for African slaves or for women. We all know and profoundly lament the sorry history of those errors.
The idea that each human being possesses inherent natural rights by virtue of one’s humanity is not just an academic argument. It has real-life consequences, which Jefferson recognized. Those consequences are implicated when government seeks to curtail rights for what it claims is the protection of another’s individual rights, the common good or the good of the government itself.
Jefferson recognized that you can consent to the curtailment of your rights but you cannot consent to the curtailment of mine. To Jefferson, government can take away your rights without your consent only if you have violated someone else’s rights.
Surrendering rights is also implicated in the second radical idea that underscores the Declaration of Independence. It is the concept that no government is valid unless it enjoys the consent of the governed. This, too, was unheard of in 1776, because British kings did not claim consent of the governed as the basis for legitimacy.
Yet consent of the governed is perfectly consistent with natural law. Under natural law, what is yours is yours and what is mine is mine. If I attempt to take your land or car or cellphone, you can stop me, either directly or through the government we have both consented to. If one of us has not consented to the government’s existence, it can still enforce natural rights as the agent of the person whose rights are being violated — just as it does for bank depositors when it captures a bank robber.
This idea of consent of the governed was a serious issue in the days and years following July 4, 1776, because about one-third of the adults living in the United States in the last quarter of the 18th century remained loyal to the king of England after the Revolution, and they did not consent to the new popular form of government that took the British government’s place. The new government was thrust upon them without their consent.
The last letter Jefferson wrote was to his enemy-turned-friend John Adams, in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the declaration — a day on which both Jefferson and Adams would die. In that letter, Jefferson argued that the greatest achievement of the declaration was its arousing men to burst free from the chains imposed upon them by superstition and myth by bringing about a recognition of their individual rights and an embrace of self-government.
Today the Jeffersonian ideals of individual natural rights and government’s legitimacy’s being conditioned upon the individual consent of the governed have themselves become myths.
In Jefferson’s day, the voters knew all that the government did, and it knew nothing about them. Today government operates largely in secrecy, and it knows our every move and captures our every communication.
In Jefferson’s day, the government needed the people’s permission to tax and regulate them. Today the people need the government’s permission to do nearly everything.
Do you know anyone who has consented to the government? Do you know anyone who could avoid the government by not giving consent? Do you consent to the government by voting? Do you consent to the government if it is run by those you voted against? Did you consent to a government that steals liberty and property and prosperity and gives them away?
Happy Fourth of July.
There is a lesson here, Patriots: (Be certain to scroll below)
These are volunteer positions for American Patriots.
These are not Militia positions, though an ability and willingness to work with responsible members of your local Militias is encouraged.
If you are interested, send an email: III@IIIPercent.com
Use a Code Name or Call Sign, we prefer that you DO NOT include your real name.
If you are a member of the III Percent Society, definitely use your assigned Call Sign.
Butt what can you expect from a Daffy fcuktard who virtue signals over this guy –
Yet permits the same positions remain unchallenged when put forth by the Barry…
Oh, perhaps this is the reason:
…and now you know…
A Clintonista says so, here.
There was no hack of the Democratic National Committee’s system on July 5 last year—not by the Russians, not by anyone else. Hard science now demonstrates it was a leak—a download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device. In short, it was an inside job by someone with access to the DNC’s system. This casts serious doubt on the initial “hack,” as alleged, that led to the very consequential publication of a large store of documents on WikiLeaks last summer.
The researchers know the download/leak happened on the east coast of the USA.
Seth Rich, murdered 5 days after the ‘leak’ could not be reached for comment.
I encourage our tech-savvy Patriots to read the article and provide feedback. Do the assertions made in the piece hold up to your scrutiny?
btw – found this over at Brock’s shop. Another great find.
“I’m not a great optimist about the western civilization.” – PJB, here.
When I was young a common pejorative when discussing Communist Russia (USSR) was ‘Pig Farmer’. As the story goes the average Communist, represented by the Russian Pig Farmer, had the following outlook on the world: Pig Farmer Alexei owned 2 pigs. Pig Farmer Vlad owned 3 pigs. So, Pig Farmer Alexei called the KGB and demanded that they come and kill one of Pig Farmer Vlad’s pigs, thus restoring equality to his world.
When Pat Buchanan comments about his pessimism for Western Civilization, it is because Pig Farmers are no longer simply mental midgets found behind the Iron Curtain. The Pig Farmer ideology has infected America to Her core. The rationale of the Pig Farmer is so entrenched in the masses of American citizens, it goes unidentified by most.
98% of Americans working for ‘The State’ are Pig Farmers. Every single American who accepts .Gov benefits – but for wounded .mil vets and those who have accepted less than they ever ‘contributed’ to the system – are Pig Farmers. I can not identify one single politician outside of the elected County Sheriff who is not a Pig Farmer – either sharing the ideology or slopping the Pigs.
The most insidious collection of Pig Farmers in America – even more repugnant than the Welfare Class – can often be found working next to you. Whether you sweep floors in a warehouse, drive a prison bus, or perform some other menial, unskilled service industry job, you definitely need look no further than your co-workers to find a few Pig Farmers. Many Pig Farmers never have to look further than the mirror. These are the slugs of society who think they make a contribution to Western Civilization by virtue of their very existence, while complaining and attempting to sabotage genuine producers in the economy – the men and women who help to construct buildings and machines, the men and women who build products and thus employ machinists and technicians and other genuine contributors.
The Pig Farmer Class in America would evaporate overnight if the parasites among us would begin to produce tangible widgets, or medicine, or advances in tech that help reduce the unit cost of production.
Hell, even if your greatest aspiration in life is to peddle Camel Toe, at least muster the gumption to produce your own and not simply recycle what you find in a Google Search, for Fcuk sake.
…or, they could simply STFU and let their betters do the work they are unwilling and incapable of accomplishing..
But that will not happen – because in their Souls they are Pig Farmers.
III Arms Company manufactures a garrote modeled on the original O.S.S. design, sent into action with O.S.S. agents and operators during WWII. Garrote techniques were taught to general US Army soldiers as recently as 1971 (FM 21-150) and continues today in elite units across the US Armed Services and Intelligence Services.
CIA, US Navy SEALS and US Army Special Forces all directly trace their existence back to the men of O.S.S. – men like Bill Donovan, William Fairbairn, Rex Applegate and Aaron Bank. Fairbairn & Applegate understood the utility of the wire garrote in certain circumstances over the knife, and they trained their students accordingly. Here is a video of US Rangers training in various garrotes and techniques.
The garrote can be designed as either a strangulation weapon or a cutting weapon. As a cutter the garrote must utilize bared wire, often a piano-grade wire. Coated wire, rope, electrical cord, or even a leather belt will work as a strangulation weapon, especially in improvised circumstances. Generally speaking, if an operator can afford to spill blood, a knife is often a better choice than a garrote. However, if the operator must avoid getting wet, a garrote with a coated wire or a sturdy rope is ideal – silent and clean.
Most III Percent Patriots understand that the fight against hardcore Marxists in America – those Marxists who bring violence and particularly those who order violence while remaining safely in their offices and country clubs while surrounded by bodyguards – will require more than ARs and cammies and open conflict to defeat.
Like the O.S.S. Agents and Cold War Agents in our history, modern III Percent Patriots will often accomplish more tactical and strategic gain for Liberty by wearing the uniform of the repairman or waiter while employing a suppressed Walther or garrote, then slipping away silently as shocked Enemies of Liberty are left to bleed out on the floors of their offices, restaurants and homes as their Marxist friends shriek in horror and surprise.
Modern Patriots must embrace both the Militiaman and the Spy if Liberty is to triumph.
Make no mistake, Liberty and Tyranny are at war and every neighborhood in America is a battleground. If your child attends public schools, you already know that Marxists and Useful Idiots in that school are pushing Marxist teachings upon your children. There is no community in America that is immune from this fight.
Before this fight goes hot, it will be fought in the cold and the shadows by patriotic Cold Warriors.
Arm yourself with the highest quality and professionally built tools of the Militiaman and the Spy.
Be ready to fight on any ground the Enemies of Liberty present.
They mean to be Masters, as Daniel Webster warned us all. Will you accept slavery upon bended knee – or will you fight?
