What 2022 Is About – Truth

truth

These are trying times, that require we stand for truth. Some Democrats believe abortion protests, more spending, transgender sports, fear of COVID, and climate change will save them in November. Americans – of all stripes – are tired of that view, angry about the disconnect, no accountability, overreach. They are also tired – deeply disappointed – in Congress and Biden.

Lest you think this talk, the June 2022 national polls show Congress with an 84 percent disapproval and Biden at just 33 percent approval. These are shocking numbers, an already low Democrat majority and Biden in record-low territory.

For Democrats, this is not the worst of it.  Three other factors are eye-popping. Truth again is key. First, these are not one-off numbers. The slide has been constant from at least last August. 

Second, minorities are moving away from Democrats – dismayed by their stands, rediscovering the “American Dream” long championed by conservatives, opportunity not outcomes, prosperity not dependence, freedom not restrictions, rights not loss of rights. Democrats are seen as a party of “elites.”

Third, most of the policies Democrats pushed are not only unpopular, out of sync with the population, but hard to reverse. Bumbling on energy, inflation, border, and crime are big errors.

By shutting down much of the US energy sector, energy prices have soared, with the price for everything that travels. Price inflation jumped again with federal overspending, as annual taxes cannot keep pace with three trillion in new debt.

Halting energy independence was destined to be a disaster – even if done in favor of wind and sun.  Renewables are decades away from added impact, with 60 percent of the power grid run on fossil fuels, some nuclear. Biden’s plan was pure folly.

Similarly, damage continues to be done daily by “open borders,” illegal aliens freshly clothed, fed, and flown to cities and towns across the country. This is morally, politically, and legally wrong, but continues.  Reversal might close the barn door, but even that would be late – and there is no hint that Democrats want that door closed.

Crime is punishing all Americans, and urban minorities more than suburban and rural communities. The affront is so obvious, with Democrats glibly attacking, undermining, and defunding police, that everyone sees the folly here, too.

So, what is ahead? Beyond the foregoing, we see a rise in “parent power,” broad concern over election integrity, national security, foreign policy, educational standards, every right in the Bill of Rights, speech, and worship to gun ownership.

Of enormous concern also is accountability for wrongdoing, whether Biden family ties to Ukraine and China, prosecutions for graft, congressional insider trading, character assassination, or 2016 to 2020 “Russia collusion” falsehoods.

Oddly, Democrats – and some Republicans – do not seem to understand popular will, what average people value. They object to street riots, rank activism for disruption, and political violence, but are also hard-pressed to accept January 6th riot was another “Pearl Harbor,” or compared with billions in riot destruction wrought in 2020’s reckless abandon.

Americans appreciate rule of law, sanctity of their institutions, fair-minded justice, but many are dismayed at tens of millions being spent by Congress rehashing January 6th, as Democrat leaders push street action against High Court Justices, do not enforce protecting laws, undermine law.

One might even ask whether choosing not to protect the Supreme Court Justices, while pushing illegal action at their homes, endangering their children, against these men and women in person – does not amount to a “slow motion insurrection,” aimed at toppling or reversing by decisions.

Here is the chief concern – for the rest of 2022. The more desperate a political party gets, the more radical their agenda becomes, until they win by force or vanish. Think about the last century, pre-war Germany, pre-revolutionary Russia, even times in the 1800s in America.

Desperation, a radical turn, delegitimizing established institutions never promotes good government, civil order, electoral integrity, popular contentment, or a republic’s future. Yet that is where we are, with national leaders stepping away from norms, laws, history, and language.

What does this cause us to expect, be most concerned about? Just this: 2022 is a year of consequence – big change one way or the other. The nation will either return to leaders who respect individual liberty, equal opportunity, free markets, borders, and civic protection, as well as a stable currency, use of our blessings, respect for institutions, rights, and life – or not.

This year is a turning point, arguably carrying historical significance, as 2024 will. The key is staying alert, engaged, knowing your heart, recalling common sense, identifying absurdities, being prepared for surprises.

Desperate political actors may try to upset the apple cart going into November. Or they may wait, aiming to act after November 9 and before January 3 to instate liberal causes by executive action, ending the filibuster, pushing bills in a lame duck session, trying to resurrect Roe v. Wade by legislating away Dobbs, or suddenly putting four new justices on the Supreme Court.

Main message: Be ready. These are times that call for reason, peace, respect, and rationality, but encourage emotion, overreaction, distraction, and anti-democratic behaviors. Quoting Thomas Paine: “These are the times that try men’s souls…but he that stands now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.” May we all stand – for truth.

“The truth? YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH !!!”

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” ― Marcus Tullius Cicero

Nineteen eighty-four was fiction. Now it is upon us. If Biden succeeds in ruling by edict, we have a king not a president.

I recently talked with a friend of mine who is a typical, ill-informed leftie. He talked to me about the horrors of January 6th. I reminded him that January 6th was a peace rally compared to all the chaos, lives lost, and destroyed businesses during the summer riots of 2020. He hardly acknowledged my point and answered me, with a painful expression on his face, that he was horrified how our nation’s Capitol had been violated. The Democrat leaders are experts at distorting the truth and brain-washing their supporters.

If I was in congress and up for election I wouldn’t be concerned for Mr. Biden. I would be concerned about me and my future.This coming election will be a blood bath. They and you know . So how to minimize my job loss. Cheat like before. Please note nothing done about the cheating last time. Why not do it again. Americans have short memories, Biden pulls 300. Voter, Trump pulls 30,000 and loses .Are we that stupid??? Hunter Biden, Hillary Clinton. And the list goes on. . No jail time . Fraud lies treason probably murder and no arrests. I’m an old man, veteran want to die knowing my country is in good hands. Marshall law would clean house. 24. Trump save America.

Politics have become so putrid to me I have quit watching most of it, especially that old crooked thug in the White House. The joke the democrat party has played on the American people by running that old demented crook is criminal. The illegals the democrats have let into this country are against the law, yet they flaunt the law and are going to let Biden take the fall for it even though he doesn’t even know what’s going on. Who is running this country from the WH basement??

Globalists. A world without borders!! Gates in bed wiht China and the number holder of farmland in the U.S. Why is China permitted to buy farmland near our military bases? There is ALWAYS hidden agendas with this admin. Think outisde the box to find the real objective of their reckless policies that embolden our enemies and weaken America. This admin certainly is not based on their words and actions, working for America or its people.

It’s also about fantasy versus reality. Many of the policy choices of the Democrats are based on “How I would like things to be.” or “How I wished things would actually work.”

As an example, both solar and wind energy cannot meet the demands of a first world economy of any substantial scale. Scientifically, they cannot provide continuous power throughout the full spectrum of all weather and environmental conditions at a price point that makes them an economical solution that promotes economic growth without huge, ongoing government subsidies and some substantial back-up, baseload power source either fossil fueled or nuclear based. Europe found that out the hard way and we seem h*ll bent on repeating that same failure here, if the Democrats are not removed from control of 2/3rds of the federal government.

Our current inflation issue is a direct result of both fantasy thinking on “green energy” and fiscal policy. The belief that we could cripple our domestic energy infrastructure in this country in favor of so-called “green energy” (a combination of both how they wish things should be and also how they wish things actually worked), while also flooding the economy with stimulus money (MMT fantasy of how they would like economics to actually work) yielded the expected reality of what those deeply flawed policies would be expected to produce if ever implemented.

So what we face is a contest of fantasy versus reality. Do people want to continue clinging to the fantasy view or do they want to acknowledge reallity and return to policies grounded in reality? I guess it comes down to have they experieced enough pain yet or are they still willing to endure even more pain and suffering?

The left long ago abandoned the very concept of truth as we understand it; an objective reality that exists regardless of feelings about it. Solzenitsyn, in my favorite of his novels, The First Circle, has uncle joe stalin say “language is a tool of production “. Ive never seen the marxist viewpoint better expressed. Human life is tragedy, but seeing that play out in ones own lifetime is unsettling. I much prefer the abstraction.

The one thing you can say about the likes of Stalin, Mao and the rest of the 20th century Marxists around the world is that they didn’t mince words. They were so safe in their respective countries,because they had slaughtered or imprisoned all their political enemies, that they were happy to speak the truth about what they were and what their ideology really advocated. These days outside of China, most Marxists around the world hide behind terms like economic and social justice, equity for all, equality of outcomes and other pleasant sounding terms that mask the real intention of what they are promoting.

More fantasy: a man can “think” himself into being a woman!
: more government spending will make inflation go DOWN
: giving women money for every baby they have without a husband present will build good families

The people pushing the agenda aren’t the ones feeling the pain. They can buy electric vehicles and pay to charge them. It’s the lower to middle class people that they are hurting. All the free stuff that they are pushing on lower income citizens will soon come to a screeching halt. This country will soon be bankrupt
