For several years now, I have watched the unending drama unfold between the executive management of the City of Pocatello and its City Council. In full discretion, I live outside of the city limits, and so even though my wife runs a business within city limits and pays city taxes, we do not get a say in how they run their operations. I have generally ignored the city administration drama that headlines local papers. However, the latest drama has caught my attention, and it deserves a response.
The deists believe that God, if He exists, sets the wheels of the universe in motion and otherwise doesn’t mingle in the affairs of man. This stands in contrast to founding Revolutionaries who found no redress in government and, heeding the words of 2 Chronicles, appealed to the highest authority they knew: an appeal to Heaven.
The reality is that burdensome progressive policy has been the best recruitment tool for conservative constituencies, and the Republican parties are just beneficiaries as the de facto alternative to the insanity. Given the short memory of the American voter, it remains to be seen whether this migration will become a net positive or negative for red America, and whether newcomers will default to the voting habits that led them to flee in the first place. One thing is for sure, as progressives migrate to freer climes, they’re bringing their horrible electoral schemes with them.
Typically, the nature of the abortion conversation tends to generate a lot of press around women and women’s rights and completely ignores the responsibility that men and young men hold in this conversation. In light of last week’s SCOTUS ruling, I think it’s important that we now address the responsibilities of men as it pertains to the abortion conversation.
Some time ago I promised some of my readers and social media followers that I was working on building a cited letter template regarding our economic downturn and the Great Reset Agenda. Readers can fill in the blanks and customize them to their liking, and send them to their representatives. I completed this template today and in fact mailed out ten copies to my Federal and State Senators, Federal and State Representatives, County Commissioners, and Mayor. Below you will find the template. It’s important that we get government officials on the record for their position on this societal planning, and that we hold their feet to the fire to oppose it.
Whether it’s naivety or simply an aversion to conflict, the gentility of conservatives has worked to our detriment. A survey of the modern American political landscape paints a disturbing picture. The double standard in how the government has come to interact with the political left versus the political right is palpable, such that permanent government bureaucracy has become indistinguishable from the Democrat Party.
We were recently notified by our power utility here in Idaho that they will be taking a page from the California playbook and instituting brownouts in our region during inclement weather. This feels a lot like a betrayal at a time when the system is forcing the public into dependency, like electric power. During one storm last month we lost power for about six hours. I had almost forgotten that my shop was off-grid until I looked out the window and the entire world was pitch black except for my little shop.
I am of the mindset that the second amendment is non-negotiable, and for myself, I have moved beyond this debate. I refuse to dignify arguments that the state is here in our best interest and I only need to submit my sovereignty to them. Gun control advocates know that opponents have both statistics as well as the moral high ground on their side, and so proponents must rely on exploiting the tragedies of the few to enact their control schemes on the many.
Thank you for being here at WithdrawConsent.org. I started this blog as a labor of love to speak out against things that I saw going wrong in the world. I wanted to be able to tell my children someday that I didn’t sit idly by while the nation that I have been so fortunate to live in crumbles under the weight of nefarious influence. Thanks to readers like you, it has been a successful start.
If you followed Idaho politics at all, you were likely subjected to a heavy dose of soap opera-level theatrics pulled straight out of the Democrat Party’s playbook. Given the results of the primaries, it looks to have worked. No shortage of accusations of being rapist defenders, victim shamers, and white supremacists filled the Idaho airwaves and print. It was spearheaded by the establishment wing of the Idaho Republican Party.
The end result of ham-fisted leftist censorship was a purge of the right wing from public debate and the rise of media and technology alternatives where ideological pariahs could speak freely. Out of this schism, Rumble, Gettr, and Truth Social were born. Free speech–supporting platforms like Gab, where the limitations of speech are the bounds of the law, saw exponential growth. This is where concern about government disinformation boards arises. If the law as written permits objectionable thought, then leftist objectors must work to prohibit that thought by law.
Last month saw the U.S. Treasury yield curve invert, whereby a 2-year Treasury bond for a time delivered a higher return than a 10-year bond. Historically, this is a near one-hundred percent predictor of a recession looming within the next two years, with a greater than two-thirds chance it happens within the next year. Just this week the U.S. Commerce Department announced that the Gross Domestic Product fell by 1.4% in the first quarter of 2022. Two consecutive quarters of losses will officially mark the entrance into a recession.
Here in Idaho, the man who brought Facebook’s election dollars to Idaho wants to be your next secretary of state. That man is Ada County Clerk Phil McGrane. McGrane spearheaded CTCL’s campaign to inject Silicon Valley dollars into Ada County’s elections, and he encouraged all of Idaho’s counties to follow suit. What is worse is that while Ada County took nearly $500k from Mark Zuckerberg’s CTCL to administer their elections, Zuckerberg’s Meta Corporation pushed forward plans for an $800 million dollar data center in the City of Kuna within Ada County.
The Old Testament Book of Esther recounts a story from the fifth century BC during the reign of Xerxes the Great. Xerxes ruled over all of the Middle East from modern day Sudan to India. In this story, King Xerxes calls forth women from across his kingdom from which to choose a queen. Esther, whom he crowns his queen, is the adopted cousin of Mordecai, a Jewish subject in Xerxes kingdom. When Mordecai learns of a plot by Haman, a nobleman in the king’s court, to exterminate all of the Jews in the kingdom, he implores to Esther that she was placed in Xerxes palace for a time such as this in order to save her people.
Idaho was handed a gift to see how loopholes were exploited around the country to drastically alter our way of life. Is there any doubt that had Donald Trump been declared the winner of the 2020 election that there would never have been vaccine mandates and the resulting Great Resignation? That our energy prices wouldn’t skyrocket because of the economic engineering of the climate priests? That Vladimir Putin wouldn’t have seen his window to mess around and find out in Ukraine? That we’d have walked away and handed tens of billions in weapons to the Taliban in Afghanistan? That our border would be as porous as swiss cheese?
After locking kids in their homes, isolating them from their peers, muzzling them with ineffective face diapers, and pounding them with fear and doom for 2 years, activists have swooped in to provide emotional support in the classroom once they were permitted to return. In typical government fashion, it seems like a solution looking for a problem. They didn’t create SEL to mend the fragile psyches of youth, they damaged the fragile psyches of youth to push SEL.
Casus belli is a Latin term that, literally translated, means a case for war. Under the Just War Theory of St. Augustine, Christians subscribe to certain conditions that must be met to make a case for righteous warfare. Just War Theory largely permits warfare in defense of oneself or the defenseless, and those who make war are keenly aware of this. This is the reason why those who desire war must often shift public sentiment in their favor by enacting subversive schemes.
I sincerely wish that every week when I sit down to put ideas to paper that all I had to do was point out the obvious insanity that is the left spectrum of politics in America. I couldn’t be so fortunate. You see, there’s this problem that consistently gets in the way, and it’s my own side. We are our own worst enemy.
In 1984, KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov warned that the bulk of efforts to take down America would not be done as covert espionage, but rather by ideological subversion. He goes on to explain that despite open access to an abundance of information, Americans’ perception of reality would be “so inundated with disinformation, that they are unable to discern what is necessary to protect their way of life, their country, their families, themselves, etc.” We see this now in our disassociated culture. How can a nation that doesn’t agree on objective reality like biology, come together on ethereal ideas like freedom and liberty? They cannot.
If you oppose identity politics you will swiftly receive any number of labels that your ideological opposition can muster against you. The term Nazi comes to mind. Ironically, the Nazis specialized in identity politics. Adolf Hitler understood the power in scapegoating entire populations based on their identities and not their contributions to the world or their ideas. These people who throw around these labels so flippantly fail introspection enough to see that it is they who operate as Nazis.
