This Is Not An Assault

”It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.”—President William Jefferson Blythe Clinton

No more chilling and prophetic words were ever spoken by a public servant than this macabre denial of objective reality by Bill Clinton during the Paula Jones / Monica Lewinsky impeachment inquiries in 1998. But it was much more than just a run-of-the-mill idiotic remark from an unusually sleazy politician, the moron who complained that the Founding Fathers had given us too much freedom, it was a momentary slip that betrayed his entire “philosophy” of governance, and in fact the very foundation on which the modern management state stands.

It also serves as an explanation of the surreal loud-speaker proclamation, by a commander of the tanks at the 1993 Waco Massacre, that “This is not an assault!” as the machines smashed down the walls of the Branch Davidian Church, filling the building with noxious—and extremely flammable—powder. The result was the deaths of 76 individuals whose only crime was their refusal to leave their home to place themselves in the hands of a rogue federal agency, as ordered by the badge-heavy and vicious goons of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, an organization with no legal right to exist under the Constitution. Moreover, BATFE was acting on warrant obtained with an affidavit they knew was false.

The most recent example of this kind of lethal Orwellian contradictionism comes from the rapidly disintegrating Kingdom of Great Britain where Alfie Evans, an innocent baby boy, suffering a degenerative disease for which he’d been incarcerated in one of that country’s barbarian Stalinist “hospitals”, was savagely put to death by individuals falsely sworn to protect his life.

I say “incarcerated” because his working-class parents were forbidden by an authoritarian elite to “interfere” with hospital staff or to remove the child for treatment elsewhere (the Polish and Italian governments were willing to offer him asylum, even citizenship, the latter willing to send a plane to fly him and his parents away to safety). Even the Liberation Theologist (read “communist”) Pope Francis attempted to save Alfie’s life, and there is a great deal more to this story, including unexplained wounds and a possible poisoning.

Which brings us to the way former Alaska governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin was mocked, and abuse piled, brown and steaming, on her head, when she predicted, correctly, that socialist medical schemes would ultimately bring “death panels” to our future: bureaucrats deciding whether patients are worth saving or should be left to die as the result of some cost/benefit analysis. That nasty rag PolitiFact called it the “lie of the year” and asserted that it exceeded “the bounds of acceptable political discussion”. Yet, if it wasn’t a panel of some kind—of administrators, doctors, nurses, or janitors—who decided to murder this baby, then what single individual is responsible for his death?

One area in which reality denial is no longer an effective strategy for the left is “gun control”—otherwise and correctly known as “victim disarmament”. For decades the Marxoids among us have been protesting that they respect the Second Amendment and swear they have no intention (as they force a nervous laugh) of taking anybody’s guns away from them. They “merely” want to assure that evil and insane people can’t get their hands on guns.

But as the last two years have taught us, they believe that anybody who disagrees with them about anything is evil and insane. They are absolutely, single-mindedly determined to strip anybody who won’t toe their neoCambodian line of the physical means of self-defense against their jack-booted thuggery.

So, the Democrat Party’s respect for the Second Amendment, like nearly everything else they twist their forked tongues around, turns out to be a baldfaced lie, as they begin gun confiscations in various states under various pretenses and call for outright repeal of that part of the Bill of Rights they disapprove of. The part that gives us protection from them.

The same bottom-feeding scavengers that want to steal our guns inevitably want to extract higher taxes—how coincidental … not—we know from recent Scandinavian history that they will seize 105 percent of your income if they can get away with it. And they are the same garbage that desperately want to impeach the one and only President I was ever happy to vote for.

I made a number of my readers, who didn’t understand, unhappy with that vote, and now I’m going to make them even unhappier. Sorry, dear friends, but in November—with considerable trepidation—to protect that President, as well as my absolute individual right to own and carry weapons, I intend to vote a straight Republican ticket for the first time in my life.

Please do not be deceived: I fully realize that the vast majority of Republicans are sticky-fingered slime-balls and that the specimens in Colorado are idiots and cowards, as well. But I will not hand a House majority to the same criminal collectivist gang this nation fought in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam.
