Everyone laughed when perennial loser / has-been VP Joe Biden stated that Democrats “choose truth over facts”, passing it off as just another one of Joe’s (many) cock-ups.
I didn’t laugh, and it wasn’t a cock-up: it was said in dead earnest.
You see, that’s exactly how the Left operates: facts are irrelevant unless they support the Party’s “truth” (or “higher truth”, as they disingenuously frame it). It’s entirely congruent, for example, with the “Fake But Accurate” defense used by people like Dan Rather (falsifying documents to advance a political position).
The old joke is that if the facts don’t conform to the theory, they must be eliminated. What the Left does is not just eliminate the contrary facts, they also set out to discredit and destroy the people who stand behind those facts.
It’s not a joke, and Biden is no laughing matter. He’s no less dangerous than all the other Marxists running for office.
Dear President Trump,
“Doing something about guns” according to the wishes of the media would be an even grosser betrayal of your 2016 supporters than not building a wall along the southern border has been.
We all — even the media — know that “doing something” in this regard means, in essence, increasing control over law-abiding gun owners which will do nothing to solve crime of any sort.
I, and most gun owners who voted for you back in 2016, know that your efforts to build a wall were undercut by the Establishment Republicans and Democrats in Congress. More ineffectual gun control legislation and the concomitant assaults on our Constitutional rights, however, will place at risk not only your chances of reelection in 2020, it will place the electoral success of the Republican senators and House legislators in a similar situation.
We are not fooled, and we will not be fooled, by the current demands to “do something”. Try to convince us that you won’t be fooled either.
And yes, this is a warning.

As we conservatives gird up to face what would destroy us and our beloved country, consider this article a warning.
Under a prevalent view that has emerged from universities in recent years, a wrong opinion is seen as tantamount to a thrown punch or even an indication of a willingness to genocide—which invites the idea that an offended party who throws a real punch (or worse) is simply acting in self-defense. This idea has become so pervasive and is so taken-for-granted at this point that even workaday journalists now pay homage to this academic conceit in their work.
Who defines what constitutes a “wrong” opinion? (Hint: it isn’t you.) Read the whole disgusting thing.
And as a wise man once said:
“Of course, the game the Left has always played is to use violence as a pretext to impose their preferred policies. We’ve had waves of left-wing violence since the Obama administration, all intended to elicit a response. Those responses are used to justify what amounts to political terrorism.”.
Feel free to see what people think, here.
Damn, and I was only at the range a couple days ago, practicing with a sniper rifle.
Well, if you’ll excuse me… that 1911 isn’t going to shoot itself. Maybe it’s also time for a little AK practice, too.
I’ve always liked Boris Johnson — yeah, maybe it’s the Old Boy thing (Eton College was the “brother” school to St. John’s) — but what I like most of all is the predictable way the U.K. Left has responded to his accession to Number 10 Downing Street:
Just note that underneath Johnson’s jovial, stammering, Hooray-Henry exterior, there’s some serious intellect going on. (See here where he talks about Winston Churchill’s oratory.) In other words, he’s the complete opposite of ex-U.S. President (Half-)Black Jesus, underneath whose smooth and urbane exterior… not much was going on.
And if PM Boris can’t get Britishland out of the horrible European Union, the Brits deserve to get everything that happens to them.
Part II from The Diplomad:
“As I noted a long time ago, [Lefties] change the meanings of words, so that the most basic units of thought and expression no longer mean what we once thought they did. We can’t even use good old-fashion pronouns. As per Orwell, they rewrite the dictionary, they make us hesitate when we think and speak, we must not give “offense” or reveal ourselves as “racist, homophobic, misogynistic” throw backs to a dark era. They use fake bought and paid for “science” to convince us to give up our standard of living, to question whether labels such as “male” and “female” have any meaning. They tear down flags, statues, and monuments; they want place names changed to erase our history. They deliberately blur the distinction between citizen and non-citizen, between legal and illegal residents in our country. They want open borders; they, in sum, want a destruction of this country, and of Western civilization.”
Yeah, well that only works on the pussies. I don’t think twice about “causing offence” before I write or say anything — and if I do, 90% of the time I say it anyway precisely because it does cause offence.
And yeah: their long game is the destruction of Western civilization. ‘Twas ever thus, since Marx.
Which reminds me: I need to buy some more ammo.
