Welcome to Vichy America

The Republican Party has made a separate peace with our totalitarian conquerors.  I renounce any affiliation with them.  To the extent that continued political engagement is possible, and the vanishing chance that it may be effective, the only choice before us is to support the grifters of the GOP or to oppose them.  I oppose them.  If my meager contribution has any value at all, I dedicate it to posterity, and I will not accept that which has befallen our country without at least a protest.

Things are not so far advanced that the choice is clear to all.  After all the gulags are still electronic, and the oppression is still political.  I can credit the good hearts of those who still think that there is some value in a party which does after all exist, and which markets itself as some sort of opposition to the Marxist technocracy which has bested us.  I simply disagree, and would ask those people to consider that this same party has shown itself recently, and throughout, as more opposed to Trump than to Biden, and more opposed to us than to Democrats.

Put aside all of the excuses which I know rush to your brain — look instead at the results, and in that context examine the behavior of individuals whom you would judge.  Rand Paul, for all of his good qualities, failed at the one moment he could have made a difference.  Mitch McConnell famously fails us whenever our interests differ from his ease.  Lindsay graham, for all of his glorious post-McCain born-again firebreathing support, Mr. Amnesty himself, is now concerned about our southern border.  Where was he when Trump fought to maintain control over it?  Graham, like Paul, voted against challenging the fraudulent Electoral College returns.

Heaven knows John Roberts is no friend to us, nor to the Constitution which he lays in the mud to guard his shoes from mud and water.  Hell knows it too.  While technically Roberts is not a partisan actor, let’s cut the crap and examine things as they are.  Bush nominated him, and he presented himself as a Constitutional originalist, friendly to the the interpretation common among conservatives.  Yet he works for the other side, re-writing law (a power he does not have) to create new governmental powers (the mandate in Obama care), yet refusing to hear cases which should have been the top concern of the US Supreme Court — the validity of a Presidential election.

We gave the Republicans the House, the Senate, the White House and the Supreme Court!  Speaker Ryan, Leader McConnell, President Trump, and Chief Justice Roberts, majorities everywhere!  And the GOP went to war not against the Marxists, but against the conservatives.

So no, I have not listened to a single grifter at CPAC, or AFPAC, or any other PAC.  Have any of them clearly laid out our situation?  Will they use the word “coup”?  Do they say that the election was stolen?  Or do they call upon us to support their futures?  Do all of them yet exhort us to assemble under the banner of the Republican Party?

Put not your hope in princes who claim that if only you support them, then they will support you.  “Elect me,” they say, “and I will work for you!”  Yet they do not.  Even if they labor, it clearly is not working.  Even granting the fierce heart and good moral posture of a few isolated cases, do not allow yourself to ransom those hostages of the GOP by supporting that treacherous party.

I urge you to extract yourself from the Republican apparatus.  They are the enemy.  Long have I supported tham, once eagerly, then reluctantly, but now no more.  I have no disdain for those who do not yet agree.  I have held my contribution important, my words helpful, my vote meaningful.  If any of that was ever true, then let it be turned to better effect against the closer enemy — those who betray us when the battle is hot.  Do not be taken in by the atmosphere of resurgence and the supposed renewal of the spirit of a political contest.  Were you not taken in last time and the time before that?  Were not we all?

CPAC is just another circus put on by the grifter class.  So are our elections now.  I am unsubscribing from email lists — I have tried this before — the mail just keeps coming.  The grifters have their needs.

The Republic has fallen.  At least withdraw your support, your excuse-making, your money and your time from those who have brought us low, and who will cheerfully cash the checks it writes.

There is a resistance.  This is the article of faith which must be borne if anything is to change.  As the Free French fought against the Vichy whores in time of war, so must we, who see and oppose the coup, fight against the GOP whores in this time of failing politics.

Death to the Party.  Difficulty to its people.

  3. I am listening to the Kassam speech. IIRC, he’s been solid every day. Popular with the frogs.

  4. I’m at the part where he lays out the options of either the NTs leave, or we leave the party. Just getting into it, so I’m withholding, but this is what I’m saying — we have ALREADY as Tea Party decided to work within the system and make the bastards either change or leave. Guess what? We got wiped out. Not six or eight years ago — that was just a matter of labelling. I mean 2020/21.

    We have spent TEN YEARS proving that acting from within does not get it done, and the party is now more secure in its comfort zone, and certainly closer to the supposed “other” party than ever. They are now inoculated against movements from below.

    Going out for an an omelet just to get out of the house. I can only take politics about ten minutes at a time.

  5. Raheem is entertaining. Arne was depressing. Happer didactic. Atkinson a mash of all.

  6. Next month, Hubby and I are going to a repeat of the National Leadership Seminar, with the same topic but different speakers. In Nashville. Speakers are Mark Steyn, Abigail Shrier, Andy Ngo, Robert Barnes, and of course Larry Arnn. We will have two free days to sightsee so suggestions are welcome, as are meetups if people are interested.
