When we first moved to California from Michigan, we were very curious about earthquakes. One day my wife felt a tremor and was sure she had experienced our first quake. She gathered our three daughters and said: “Did you feel that? I think that might have been an earthquake.” A few minutes later, it happened again. Then my oldest daughter, who was about 12, said: “Mom, do you think that might be the spin cycle on the washing machine?” We have been laughing about that ever since.
Lately, things have been so weird that I wonder if we might all be living through the modern version of that spin cycle. On December 29, 2016, the Obama administration publicized an intelligence report concluding that Russia had interfered with the 2016 election to help Donald Trump. President Obama ordered sweeping new sanctions and expelled 35 Russians. We now know that this was total nonsense. It is far from clear that Russia had anything to do with the Wikileaks disclosure of DNC emails. We definitely know that Russia was not colluding with the Donald Trump campaign. We also know that they were colluding with the Hillary Clinton campaign to stop Donald Trump. The Obama administration knew this too but launched this insane attach on Russia anyway in an obvious attempt to delegitimize the Trump administration from day one.
Now, four years later, the DNI announced that China interfered with our election to benefit Joe Biden. Last Friday the Trump administration issued last minute sanctions on Iran, China, and Cuba. Just wait for the MSM to complain that Trump was acting irresponsibly. Few of them will even notice the irony. One could say that history is repeating itself, except that this time Trump actually has evidence to support this decision.
Everything we see right now is beyond bizarre. There is so much information that is so contradictory that the truth is more than a little illusive. What we do know is this, the Democratic Party and the MSM continues to lie to us. Somethings never change.
They are trying to pretend that anyone who questions the 2020 election is guilty of a crime. In 2016, it was Russia, this year it is all of us. Yet contrary to reports in the MSM the evidence supporting election fraud is all too real and substantial. Perhaps the most obvious evidence is that no one, in either party, is even pretending that Joe Biden really won a landslide election. Even Democrats are not talking about Joe Biden, they are still focused entirely on Donald Trump.
Our nation’s Capital has been turned into an armed fortress. Why? There are even reports that National Guard troops are being vetted to be sure they are not planning on interfering with the inauguration. There are more troops in Washington D.C. than in Afghanistan. One local resident, when asked about this, said “if you need 20,000 troops to guard you during your inauguration you weren’t elected by the people.” (This is not the actual quote, that was more colorful and profane.)
Do they really fear a well-coordinated armed insurrection? At worst, the incident at the Capital last week involved about 100 people. Most of whom qualify as nut jobs and seemed more focused on photo ops than insurrection. In addition, contrary to claims in the MSM, there is evidence that at least some Antifa/BLM activists were involved and a Boogaloo Boi leader is even bragging about it.
In addition, Democrats, and their supporters in the MSM are trying to silence Donald Trump by blocking him from Twitter, Facebook Google, Amazon, Apple and anywhere else. They are also threatening to block anyone who agrees with him regarding the obvious problems with the 2020 election. Apparently questioning the results of the 2020 election is tantamount to treason. Questioning the results in 2016 was patriotism.
They are even demanding expulsion from congress of anyone who dared object to the results of the election. That would be more impressive if they hadn’t ignored the Democrats who did the same thing previously, only without even a hint of evidence. Some are even demanding that news outlets like OAN and Newsmax, and Fox News be banned, to avoid spreading misinformation. This is absurd. It is also dangerous.
In response to the very real crisis facing this country, Joe Biden has apparently decided that the number one issue is transgender rights. Here is the Breitbart report on this. This is also reported in numerous other places:
His website apparently promises the following:
On his first day in office, Biden will reinstate the Obama-Biden guidance revoked by the Trump-Pence Administration, which will restore transgender students’ access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity. He will direct his Department of Education to vigorously enforce and investigate violations of transgender students’ civil rights.
Wow, with this kind of brilliant leadership just imagine what is possible.
Oh, by the way, he apparently intends to make masks mandatory, nationwide, even when indoors with family. Meanwhile Democrats have impeached Donald Trump for inciting a riot that started before he finished speaking and which was planned in advance. Even CNN admitted that, but all the Democrats in the House and ten idiotic Republicans voted to impeach him anyway. What makes this even worse is that it has no chance of removing Trump from office even five minutes early.
This is unlikely to end well, for any of us. With this type of leadership, the Democratic dreams of happy days being here again are about as realistic as thinking the spin cycle on a washing machine is an earthquake.
