Anyone else having trouble keeping up with current events? Living today, especially in the USA, is like riding a runaway roller coaster. Up, down, sideways and often inverted.
Is the virus a medical problem or a political problem? Should it be Dr. Fauci or Dr. Falsie?
Was the 2020 election truly stolen or just a collection of inexplicable anomalies that taken together give the impression of impropriety?
A person being interviewed during a BLM/Antifa unpleasantness was quoted as saying, “looting is just a form of reparations.” Can that be true?
Does anyone still think that Joe Biden in the White House is good for America or that Kamala Harris is actually qualified to be President?
How long will our Justice Department and the intelligence Agencies continue to sit on evidence of major crimes committed by the so-called elite and refuse to take action?
Has anyone else noticed the number of billionaire oligarchs who are buying citizenship in New Zealand? Maybe it’s just a new status symbol purchase or perhaps it has something to do with the difficulty in obtaining extradition to prosecute money or tax related crimes.
The Supreme Court seems to now exist for the sole purpose of remaining the Supreme Court and to do so they must scrupulously avoid controversy. Not unlike the Kardashians and the Obamas, they seem content to be famous simply for being famous.
The latest big thing is Mike Lindell, the My Pillow Guy. This unlikely patriot is either the largest personification of Don Quixote or he is actually cut in the mold of Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton and all the rest of those who risked it all to create this country. Mr. Lindell has put it all on the line in an attempt to singlehandedly drain the DC swamp and end the American corruptocracy. I can think of no-one in modern history who has risked more with no thought, or even possibility of personal gain.
I watched his 72 hour symposium. The presentation was compelling and convincing and if true, the effort put into the election steal would rival the WWII Manhattan project.
Spoiler alert for Mr. Lindell, the so-called Deep State came to life with the founding of our nation and has had nearly 250 years to metastasize into the soul-sucking cancer that it is today. Our elected and appointed officials, both political parties, the tech oligarchs, and many foreign governments have more interest in maintaining the swamp than in draining the swamp.
As one who believes in the spirit of our Constitution and in American Exceptionalism, I truly hope Mike Lindell wins this fight. I do not want to see this great country take a place on the ash heap of history.
In Irish poet W.B. Yeats’ poem, “Second Coming,” written in 1919, there is a line that describes the political make up of today’s America. “The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.
America has problems but it seems the attempted solutions are often worse than those problems. It would be good to visit Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
