Here’s Something You Can Lock Down

What is this weird, unseemly delight these same people who have totally failed to date regarding the virus have in trying to tell us what to do? Oh right, they are power hungry creeps who we should laugh at and ignore. Also, the time of the purging is coming!

Viral Load

The fact that they have been allowed to get away with their idiotic dictates for so long has only encouraged them in trying to grab more power. They approach the idea of telling us what to do and how to live with the same icky glee that Jeffrey Toobin experiences looking forward to a Zoom call. They like this. This is fun for them. They are experiencing the giddy thrill of unchallenged power and it’s time we challenged it.

Oh no, Kurt, you’re denying science and you don’t care if a zillion people die and blah blah blah.

Um, we’ve been doing what these pint-sized Mussolinis wanted for nearly a year and guess what? The virus is still here and it’s spreading.

Now, if you go back to the beginning of this pandemic, the doctors were saying things that made sense, to wit, that it’s a pandemic. Almost everyone is going to get it eventually and the idea is to keep everyone from getting it all at once. And weird – everyone is getting it. But somewhere along the way the alleged goal changed to keeping people from getting it perpetually. Not just at-risk folks but everyone, and that’s never been doable.

Here’s the sad fact – you’re probably going to get it if the vaccine does not come out soon. That’s just a fact. So why are we compounding this problem by destroying businesses and kid’s lives and generally wrecking everything?

Sure, the notion that the Establishment is conspiring to do it in order to weaken us and prep us for further tyranny is certainly intriguing, but these clowns aren’t competent enough to pull that off. Yes, they like the idea of disrupting families by banning holidays, but the idea of some sort of ideological scheme is much less likely than the simplest explanation, that they just get off on bossing people around.

How about we choose?

How about we assess our own risks?

I have people I know who are very vulnerable to the virus. They need to protect themselves, and that means that I can’t hang around them sometimes. Others, well, they can roll the dice. Life is about balancing risk, not about eliminating it. If my forefathers had refused to take risks then they would have stuck around Stuttgart and now I’d be one of those tiresome Germans who eat schnitzel and refuse to pay their fair share of NATO. No one wants that.

I am not saying ignore the virus and pretend it doesn’t exist. I know firsthand that it does. But I am saying that society cannot come to a halt every few months because people are going to get sick.

People are going to get sick, people.

We’ve been following their advice for nearly a year and people are still getting sick. So, now we are going to fix things by…continuing to do the same things that got us here?

I’m tired of the lies. I’m tired of the dictator vibe. I’m tired of it all and I refuse to be a part of it. 

So Done With The Sissies

Right on time, here come the weak-sister RINOs congratulating Biden on the election he has not won yet. Why? Why do they do this? Because they want to keep “credibility” with people who hate them.

Elections get litigated. This one is being litigated. Trump will win or he will lose. That’s the reality. But the bizarro world of the left is one where Trump and his pal Putin “hacked” the 2016 election and he was not a legitimate president and blah blah blah – there’s a lots of blahs in this week’s column, huh?e – and the goal is to somehow establish an official narrative.

And these simps keep falling for it.

How hard is it to say the true and actually principled thing, which is “There’s a process and when it’s done we’ll know who won?” If these people were actually principled, instead of faux-principled, that would be their answer. But they aren’t. They want to suck up to people who hate them. The people who hate them will still hate them, though, and now so will we.

Basically, they abandoned their vaunted principles for a handful of magic beans. Smart!

We’ve been culling the lame and treacherous for a while, and there are more to cull. Cheer up – the wheels will grind finely and soon we will be rid of even more of them. The fact is that the softcons have no home. We don’t want them (except the ones who must be soft to survive, like Susan Collins) and the Democrats don’t want them. Their time is running out. And it’s all their own fault.

In just one week I release Crisis, the fifth book in my best-selling conservative thriller selling series about America split into red and blue, so prepare by reading People's Republic, Indian Country, Wildfire, and Collapse
