Exceptionalism and reality

amulets and talismen – who gave us the right? – anyone can be a victim – Trump was right, as usual – energy is key – facts don’t seem to matter much for many.

America is The Exception—And We Better Make Sure It Stays That Way. Jeff M. Lewis — “Even a passing glance at what the “free countries” of the world have done in response to the COVID-19 pandemic should be cause for concern.” – “It is time for every American to understand clearly that our Constitution was inspired, designed, and written to prevent this type of police state response.” – “There is no place in the world like the United States, where you are born with your rights and the government is prevented from infringing upon them”

How the truckers split indigenous Canada. Ashley Frawley — “We are fed up with being viewed as virtuous victims” – “if the recent Freedom Convoy revealed anything, it was that deep rifts do exist in Canada — and they could soon boil over.” – “no matter how hard policymakers and even indigenous leaders try to convince us otherwise, the issues faced by indigenous people are not so different from those faced by people around the world.”

President Trump in 2018 called out the factors that led Putin to invade Ukraine. Rajan Laad — “Trump observed that decades of cowardice in challenging the status quo and probably self-interest have prevented past US Presidents from addressing and dealing with the stark disparity in contributions to NATO. … pointed out that Germany shut down their coal plants and then struck multi-billion-dollar pipeline deals with Russia, making it dependent for its energy on Russia … showed how clearly he understood the functioning of global organizations such as NATO and the EU” – “George Orwell observed that in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. … President Trump was the only one who understood the façade of these pompous but pointless global organizations had the guts to plainly state the obvious that the Emperor had no clothes on”

Standing Up To Putin Means Ditching Net-Zero. Rupert Darwall via RealClearEnergy.org — “The dilemma for the West: you can’t win a geopolitical conflict lasting years or decades with an economy powered intermittently by wind turbines and solar panels.

Psaki’s ‘West Wing’ White House. Post Editorial Board — “This explains so much. After all, the show pioneered Psaki’s own style of communicating. I.e., speaking to anyone who questions the liberal orthodoxy of the moment as if they were fools or traitors.” – “This is hilarious as fiction. But when it becomes fact — especially as we face the most serious aggression against the West in a generation — it’s simply terrifying.”

Psycho-socio affection for masks. Geoffrey P. Hunt — “Bill Maher … In commenting on the pathology of mask wearers, and usefulness of masks per se, he says a mask is merely an “amulet.” – “A mask also operates as a talisman, conveying some special powers, enhanced by the mystery of how the spirit occupies the soul behind the mask.” – “Mask wearing has always been comic, farcical, dark, and teasing sexual theater. Yet for many, imprisoned by the age of anxiety, mask wearing is an obsession designed to conceal a body dysmorphic disorder accompanied by diffidence requiring a screen to provide safe space and refuge from imagined uncomfortable judgments and rejections based solely on cosmetics” — “The Enlightenment from Bacon to Kant to Newton to Harvey ushered in the era of logic, reasoning, mathematics, physics, human anatomy and the philosophy of science.  Coerced and mandated, CCP Covid mask wearing has abandoned all of that, forsaken truth, and sadly, trivialized beauty, and brutalized whimsy.”

The COVID narrative continues, regardless of facts. Terry Paulding — “we are becoming a dumber, less questioning, more complacent, and lazy society” – “In order to have a thriving society, we need to stop this idiocracy in its tracks. If we don’t have a solid, proof-positive foundation upon which to build consensus — if, instead, we have proof that we’re being fed lies — then there can be no trust in those “in authority.” Without that trust, there is basically no authority, only vacuous, malevolent despotism, and an increasingly angry populace.”
