Night Cap: Black Christian Nationalism

Granite Grok - Sun, 2024-06-09 02:00 +0000

The politicization of Americans’ faith traditions has recently devolved into the newfound leftist phrase “Christian nationalist,” often combined with race as “white Christian nationalism” and then touted as a threat to the nation. But in seemingly racist arrogance, these Christ-haters ignore the history of black Christian nationalism.

In an insightful contemplation of the nascent anti-Christian crusade by god-hating Marxists, Kenneth L. Woodward writes in First Things that “[w]hite Christian nationalism is a social construction the meaning of which depends on who is doing the constructing.”  Woodward chronicles the effort by a handful of Christian-hating politicos to portray the dreaded “Christian nationalist” category as “an implicit theocratic threat to the country” but adroitly points out the flaws of this slanderous undertaking:

In sum, “white Christian nationalist” is an inherently political concept. … The relationship between Christianity and American nationalism has a long history, against which any new iteration must be understood. … In the Cold War era, when the spread of Communism was the nation’s main concern, both liberals and conservatives advanced their political agendas by appealing to yet other forms of Christian nationalism. And so, in the biblical idiom of freedom and justice, did Martin Luther King Jr.

Indeed, Joe Biden invokes God routinely to endorse his godless edicts.  How does he escape the white Christian nationalist moniker?  And what of black Christians who embrace the clear Christian roots of the American experience?  Are they not a threat to the nation?

The meaning of words and phrases can be extremely important.  “White supremacist” once referred to white people who believe that whites are a superior race to blacks.  The term has been perverted to mean “white people” (or even black people who do not agree with Critical Race Theory).  The political/secular crusade against Christianity seeks to similarly recast the good traditions of liberty, equality, and unalienable rights that arose from Christianity and led to the abolitionist movement as somehow evil.  Many black voices, both current and historical, join Martin Luther King, Jr. in support of precisely the same Christian precepts embraced by so-called white Christian nationalists.

Martin Luther King, Jr. is no longer the darling of the left.  He has essentially been canceled: whites who invoke his legacy are knee-jerk slandered as white supremacists.  But King was a bold, devout Christian preacher, politician, and activist for whom faith in Christ was the foundation of all that he did, including his martyrdom for the cause of civil rights.  His “I Have a Dream” speech still echoes dimly in the minds of Americans trying to fathom how race-based hiring, advancement, and reparations will accomplish anything other than the destruction of everything King invested his career — and life — to accomplish.

King was hardly the sole black American to elevate his faith into the Christian nationalist “biblical idiom of freedom and justice.”  Black and white Americans have long found unity in that shared faith that fueled the abolitionist movement and strives even now for aspirational equality, under Marxist attack by those invoking the inequitable, destructive ideologies of race, gender, and queer “theories” that all advance principles antithetical to Christian ideals.  These toxic theories create division, emphasize rights (that would not exist but for the Christian contribution) over duties, demand “works” of racial repentance, bizarre pronouns, or trans-groveling, and do not aspire toward freedom, equality, or justice.  That is, they are overtly anti-Christian.

Many great black American minds held strongly to the Christian religion and the American creed.  Frederick Douglass was outspoken in his passion for the American liberties now under assault:

I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress. … There is no negro problem. The problem is whether the American people have loyalty enough, honor enough, patriotism enough, to live up to their own constitution. … Education means emancipation. It means light and liberty. It means the uplifting of the soul of man into the glorious light of truth, the light by which men can only be made free.

Walter E. Williams was no less shy in expressing his faith and opposing the ongoing Marxist destruction of the nation:

Democracy and liberty are not the same. Democracy is little more than mob rule, while liberty refers to the sovereignty of the individual. … Income redistribution not only betrays the founders’ vision, it’s a sin in the eyes of God. … It’s morality that is society’s first line of defense against uncivilized behavior. … For those of us who are Christians, I’m very sure that when God gave Moses the commandment Thou Shalt Not Steal, he did not mean … unless you get a majority vote in Congress.

Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman were both ardently devout Christians.  While the social justice warrior crowd might falsely claim that these famous ladies were bamboozled into a false faith, their accomplishments would have been impossible without faith.  Both women drew their courage from their Christian convictions, with Tubman claiming, “I am at peace with God and all mankind.”

George Washington Carver proclaimed, “Our creator is the same and never changes despite the names given Him by people here and in all parts of the world.  Even if we gave Him no name at all, He would still be there, within us, waiting to give us good on this earth.”  Booker T. Washington wrote, “If no other consideration had convinced me of the value of the Christian life, the Christlike work which the Church of all denominations in America has done during the last thirty-five years for the elevation of the black man would have made me a Christian.”

Thomas Sowell is a black American who strongly condemns the attack on constitutional rights by those who claim they seek social justice:

Racism is not dead, but it is on life support — kept alive by politicians, race hustlers and people who get a sense of superiority by denouncing others as “racists.” … If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 60 years ago, a liberal 30 years ago and a racist today.

Actor Harry Lennix, a Catholic, has remarked, “The black church is extremely important in black America.  I think most Americans themselves believe in a divine power, in a God, and I’m sure that that number increases with black people.”  Rosa Parks held that “I believe there is only one race — the human race.”  Voddie Baucham, Jr. writes, “Who am I to tell a white brother that he cannot be reconciled to me until he has dredged up all of the racial sins of his and his ancestors’ past and made proper restitution?  Christ has atoned for sin!”

Defining “Christian nationalism” is a patently vague political game.  In contrast, defining America as founded on Christian ideals of equal rights and fundamental liberties, which gave rise to the abolitionist movement, is a true, non-racist definition of the term, embraced by black and white Americans alike.  The battle against slavery and prejudice will always go on, and there will always be brothers and sisters in Christ (of all colors and nationalities) agreeing with Rev. King: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Christianity is the light, and the love, entwined in this American nation.  That’s Christian nationalism, in plain black and white.

Investigating that Nashua Flag Pole.

Granite Grok - Sun, 2024-06-09 00:00 +0000

Most readers are already familiar with a flag pole outside Nashua City Hall, the one being referred to in this link. Over the years, it has been called various names. For those not up to speed on Nashua matters, I will offer the latest Grok piece and the one from the day before.

Much can be discussed here, and there are multiple topics for future articles, but I’ll touch upon just a few.

Many readers are familiar with my anger against the whole senate, but in keeping with an attitude of gratitude, I’ll point out that I’m glad to have a senator who denounces city hall’s shenanigans because Groksters Beth Scaer and her husband do not.

And seeing that we’re into Day 3 of candidate filing time, I want to recognize Mr. Scaer for being Rosenwald’s opponent in 2022 and again this year.  I encourage him to add free speech to his platform of the usual Cornerstone-related issues.

The Scaers were ahead of their time in many ways because the flag pole I’m talking about was the subject of much water cooler talk when Beth flew the women’s sports flag almost four years ago, yet it’s only recently a hot item in the legislature.

I could go on to discuss women’s sports bills SB375 and HB1205, but I want to get back to the flag pole and acknowledge the Disqus comments following the more recent Grok piece.  I recognize some of the usual suspects, but there were also some less frequent flyers participating, and I want to go on record speaking to some of the discussion there.

There was a comment in support of abolishing said flag pole, which certainly has merit to it. I would support that thought, though I’ll point out that the flag pole issues are just a symptom of what’s wrong with city hall.  One does not need to be a doctor to know that making a symptom disappear is not necessarily a solution to the undesired condition in need of a cure.  It’s also a form of group punishment, which I know is utilized by coaches, boot camp drill instructors, and at least one of my former bosses.  Someone else can take that discussion further in another article, but I’ll move on to another Nashua issue, right-to-know.

Compliments of our fickle House and Queen Sharon’s Senate Sheeple, HB 1002 could be signed by the Damn Emperor any day now, and I don’t remember the final language as to when it takes effect.  Therefore, time is of the essence and I wanted to get my RTK request in ASAP.  I emailed Risk Management and the Office of the Mayor this morning.  I said the following:

Good morning, Risk Management and Office of the Mayor:
As per 91A right-to-know, I am requesting a copy of the following items:
1) All requests for use of the community flag pole, also known as the citizens flag pole, from January 2017 through the present.*
2) Risk Management’s responses to all the aforementioned requests.
3) All appeals to denied aforementioned requests.
4) The mayor’s response to all aforementioned appeals.
*The flag pole referred to in this link: https://www.nashuanh.gov/543/City-Hall-Plaza-Flag-Pole-Events

Please reply within five days and have a good weekend.
Sincerely,
Julie Smith

I’ll add that I anticipate receiving the “Laurie Ortolano Treatment,” but hey, someone has to do it.  City Hall will always balk at investigation, but Nashua taxpayers deserve to know the hard facts on how unequal treatment is dished out, and I’ll share what I’m able to uncover.

The Aaron Day Show: Manhattan Project to Defeat CBDCs

Granite Grok - Sat, 2024-06-08 23:00 +0000

We are currently experiencing a complete crackdown on crypto. Through Executive Order 14067, President Biden is taking a whole-of-government approach to regulating decentralized crypto out of existence. The DOJ, FBI, Treasury, CFTC, IRS, and others have been fully weaponized.

Every US exchange is currently being sued. People like Ian Freeman and Roger Ver have been thrown in prison. Privacy coins and DeFi are under attack. Why? They need to shutoff all competition in order to roll out CBDCs. This is very close. To combat this, we need open-source, decentralized wallets and point-of-sale systems that can handle multiple cryptos, gold, and silver. We need a better, faster, cheaper alternative to CBDCs. In short, we need to unify now against CBDC tyranny. In this podcast, I will launch a plan to create a Manhattan Project for working on this solution. I am operating under the assumption that we might have less than 6 months to make this happen.

Israel: The Lesson of Sudenteland Applies

Granite Grok - Sat, 2024-06-08 22:00 +0000

I first learned the Arabic phrase “First Saturday, then Sunday” from Brigitte Gabriel’s book BECAUSE THEY HATE.  Translation, for those who have not heard of it: First the SATURDAY PEOPLE, i.e., The Jews, and then the SUNDAY PEOPLE, the Christians.

See the video here.

 

 

 

Islam is a supremacist religion.  But it’s not just about a relationship between Man and the Divine; it’s a total, all-encompassing life guidance policy; everything is controlled, and if not, it’s By the will of Allah.  If you’ve ever studied Islam, and I have to some degree – or, at least, reading and listening to videos by such notables as Dr. Bill Warner, Robert Spencer, and others… understand, they want to convert you, enslave you, or kill you.  They say so openly.

 

 

Have the moral courage to listen to the plain words of what they say their goals are.

 

https://granitegrok.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/12/hamas-true-goal-in-their-own-words.mp4

 

And then, channeling their own preachings, they’ll come for every non-Islamic country.  From here:

Imam in Ireland running for parliament says: “Allah commands Muslims to kill Christians and Jews if they don’t convert or pay jizya.”

Europe, wake up.

 

https://granitegrok.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/06/Imam_who_lives_in_Ireland_and_is_a_parliamentary_candidate_Allah.mp4

 

They have a plan for America specifically, and it’s no secret – remember, we look to the next election, they look to the next decades and centuries:

 

https://granitegrok.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/04/brigitte-on-the-muslim-brotherhood-plan.mp4

 

They wrote it then, and openly say it too – Sharia law everywhere.  Examples of Sharia.

 

https://granitegrok.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/the-plan-in-the-open.mp4

 

More on Sharia.  And a video about Sharia implementation in Taliban Afghanistan:

Bloodbath As Taliban Orders Implementation Of Sharia Law After Female Students Beaten | World News (youtube.com)

They’re HERE and they say this:

“Don’t just destroy Israel, destroy America” (barenakedislam.com)

Campus Jihadists Real Target Is America | Power Line (powerlineblog.com)

 

 

Do these people look like they’re in the streets because of Israel?  And just like people who fled Communism know what Communism is, people who fled Islam know what it is.  Bolding added:

Look at this rally in Germany.

This is what things are like in Europe today.

Many Iranians who fled Islamists in Iran and went to live in Germany write on their social media:

“We fled the Islamists and came to Germany to be allowed to live. Where should our children flee to now?”

These Islamists want to destroy Western civilisation and rule the world.

They say “la ilaha illa Allah, al kholafa vaadollah”, meaning “No god but Allah, the caliphate is his promise “.

By this they mean that Allah will fulfil His promises in the world through His soldiers, these Islamists.

They proclaim during the rally that the a caliphate is the solution.

The world needs to wake up before this gets out of hand.

 

 

Did Israel have anything to do with the slaughter of Hindus in India?

Mughal India ~ The Biggest Holocaust in World History | SikhNet

Or the continued depredations of Hindu women today?

Or slaughters of Christians in Nigeria and elsewhere?

Did Israel have anything to do with the Barbary Pirates?

William Federer: Jefferson and the Barbary Pirate Coast | The Patriot Post

Tell me this, from over 200 years ago, could not have come from any jihadist today:

When Jefferson asked the Islamic Ambassador what the new country of America had done to offend them, he reported to John Jay, March 28, 1786:

“The ambassador answered us that it was founded on the laws of the prophet, it was written in their Qur’an, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman (Muslim) who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once.”

Read that quote again.  Then tell me with a straight face this is not what jihadists and imams say now.  (And where was Israel back in Jefferson’s day, hmmm?)

 

 

FRONT LINES

I understand there are concerns about supporting Israel, and I’ve openly said that long-term Israel needs to wean itself – voluntarily – from US support (as, more broadly, any country wanting to have pride in itself should).  But this war must be won first.  How do you win a war?  By crushing the enemy so thoroughly that they stop fighting and accept defeat.

 

 

 

 

And, as I opined in one of my Israel posts, at the end, that the war against a caliphate MUST include undermining the religion as it currently exists.  If there is, or can be developed, wedges to insert into Islamic dialog that such actions as we saw in Israel recently, and more broadly how such actions around the world over decades are violations of Islamic law, let’s do this.  Surely, between multiple scholars of Islam and moderate Muslims (they do exist) ways can be studied to do this.  Start with this guy:

BRITISH EX-MUSLIM: “I’m not a Muslim anymore because I know too much about Islam” (barenakedislam.com)

Also, this guy. image seen above (Loay Alshareef, a Muslim social media influencer from the UAE):

On Jerusalem Day, I would like to remind my fellow Muslims that neither Prophet Mohammed nor his companions regarded Jerusalem as holy or (Haram حرم), reserving this reverence only for Mecca and Medina. ‎Neither the Prophet nor his companions actually called it “Jerusalem” or even “Al-Quds”; they referred to it by the common Latin Roman name “Aelia Capitolina” (مدينة إيلياء), chosen by the Romans when they expelled the Jews from Israel and renamed the land “Palestine” after it was called “Judea”. ‎However, Jewish Israeli prophets like King David, whom we honor and revere and even name our kids after (ironically), established it as the capital of Israel 3,000 years ago when David became the King of Israel. ‎PS: The name Al-Quds (Arabic equivalent to Jerusalem) comes from the Hebrew word בית המקדש (Beit Hamikdash) which is the Jewish Temple. ‎History 101. ‎You’re Welcome.

To truly win a war with an enemy committed to dying in this fight – because their greatest reward possible is to die in the fight – one must, in turn, figure out how to demoralize them and someone remove that impetus.  If, for example, it can somehow be shown that terror and kidnapping and so on is against Islam, then that can push a drive to reconsider these things.  So, too, can a “new interpretation” of what awaits the martyr in the afterlife:

 

 

As an aside.  Consider that Islam has four wives per husband (up to, as they can afford), plus as many slave women as they can catch.  What does this logically do?  Create a shortage of women.  So to all those sex starved poorer men, EITHER they go out and capture women (Captive of the Right Hand) by engaging in jihad, OR they get killed in jihad and get an eternity of women.  It’s a diabolically-clever system, no?

Yes, sex slavery is a real thing in Islam.   From here:

A Muslim woman says the Quran permits the kidnapping of “sabaya” (sex slave prisoners of war) and the sex slaves are allowed to be raped…on live television for an Arab audience:

“[Islam] put slavery in order…the “sabaya” (female prisoners of war) are “those whom you own.” In order to humiliate them…[her captor] can have sex with them just like he has sex with his wives.”

Just look at what they’re doing in Britain, and more broadly all across Europe.  Anything to do with Israel?  No.  Everything to do with Islam and its views of infidels?  Emphatic YES.  Remember the Yazidi girls?

Isis burns 19 Yazidi women to death in Mosul for ‘refusing to have sex with fighters’ | The Independent | The Independent

“They were punished for refusing to have sex with Isis militants,” Abdullah al-Malla, a local media activist, told the agency.

Again – their raping and burning uncooperative women alive has nothing to do with Israel.  It has everything to do with Islam and its need to dominate all life.

 

 

 

THE WHY

Lest you forget the reason for why Israel is in Gaza as hard and heavy as they are:

Hamas Massacre – October 2023 (hamas-massacre.net)

Announcing MEMRI Hamas Atrocities Documentation Center | MEMRI

These next two video links are… not just difficult.  They’re almost unwatchableEXTREME CONTENT WARNING!!!!

40 minutes of Hamas atrocities – most that they filmed (rumble.com)

The first scene is of two female Israeli soldiers, unarmed, hiding under a desk.  Shot point-blank.  Totally against the Geneva Convention.  And yet, despite this and legions of other examples, Israel is expected to obey the Geneva Conventions while Hamas completely ignores them?  Remember that Hamas had big screen TVs set up (video, 34 minutes) so the “home audience” could see what was happening, live.

Another one:

Pregnant woman (source here)

They taped her mouth shut so she couldn’t scream and held her down as they cut out her baby.  And filmed it.

This is why Israel is going full force; by all rights Israel should carpet bomb Gaza into powder, then go in on foot and kill anything born with two legs.  Consider that the just-rescued Noa Argamani was held in a private home.

 

 

Even children?  What should one do with kids like this charmer?

When one sets foot on an adder, one asks not its size.

– Robert E. Howard, writing the character Solomon Kane

And she’s not alone:

WATCH: ‘I want to stab a Jew,’ young girl tells her teacher father | The Times of Israel

Legions of videos exist, e.g., Gaza kindergarten graduation ceremoniesTeenage summer camps.  Innocent children?  Not.

So look at yourself in the mirror – assuming you were able to watch the above two gruesome videos – tell me you would NOT be using “overwhelming force” if October 7 happened to your country.  How many missiles would need to land in your country for you to respond?

 

 

 

More on horrors done by the Oct. 7 terrorists.  From here (bolding added):

We found this phrase book inside the uniform pockets of the Hamas terrorists who were killed and/or captured alive on October 7 inside Israel. Guess what phrases in Hebrew they had there?
“Pull down your pants!” Followed by “keep your hands up!” Both were in the feminine case of the Hebrew language.
They came ready and prepared for a mass rape of Israeli girls!

 

 

For those who have been in the military: Is there any – ANY – reason to learn the phrase “Take your pants off” to be told to a woman?  And having the female form of the imperative specifically as Hebrew is a gendered language?  How many of your countrywomen raped and slaughtered would it take before you screamed KILL THEM ALL?

‘Screams Before Silence’ Must Be Seen and Remembered (hollywoodintoto.com)

And you understood, finally, that offers of peace mean nothing to them?  As the peace activists discussed here learned to their sorrow.

 

https://granitegrok.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/Message-to-sjws.mp4

 

In my Israel posts (last one here) I have a section called ATROCITIES that also highlight, grimly and vividly, specific cases.  More broadly, Islam has always been like that.  The man in this essay was known to Mohammed personally.

Allah’s Sword of Terror (raymondibrahim.com) (link in the original, bolding added):

For example, only recently I came across a video of a modern-day Egyptian Salafi explaining how Khalid raped Layla, the wife of Malik bin Nuwayra—but only after he severed her husband’s head, lit it on fire, and cooked his dinner on it.

Khalid was recalled and questioned by the caliph—not because he killed and dined on an apostate’s head and “married” his wife, but because some believed that Malik was still Muslim, not an apostate to be treated so, and that Khalid killed him on the accusation of apostasy only as a pretext to take possession of his wife, whose beauty was renowned.

Note, too, he was not called onto the carpet for either cannibalism or rape, but rather just the possibility he might have killed another Muslim to take possession of his wife.  Add in that, per a brief email conversation with Dr. Bill Warner of Political Islam, not only did he rape the man’s widow, he did so in a pool of her husband’s blood.  And look at what Mohammed himself did to another widow – of a man he ordered tortured and (implicitly) ordered beheaded:

Kinana’s wife Safiyya bint Huyayy was taken as a war prize; Muhammad claimed her for himself and hastily arranged a “wedding” ceremony that night. He halted the Muslims’ caravan out of Khaybar later that night in order to consummate the marriage, or more precisely, to rape Safiyya.

As they will do unto you and yours if they’re not stopped.

WHY SUPPORT ISRAEL?

Leading up to WW2 the allies appeased Hitler by handing over the Sudetenland.  That did not slake Hitler’s thirst, it whetted it because he understood the cowardly nature of the Allies.  To his defeat, eventually, but so much could have been avoided.

Whether we like it or not, it is – again – Islam vs. non-Islam.  Understand that every victory they have fuels their recruitment and drive to continue.  Feeding Israel to Islam will not win The West peace.  It will only fuel their contempt for us infidels and our weakness, and they will drive ever harder to Islamize the world.

Again, I take them at their word.  I take seriously the warnings of people who have left Islam.

 

 

I see what Islam did in Israel, and read about it across history from the very originator, Mohammed to today. This will not stop with Israel.

Gentlemen, we in the West must hang together against Islam, or we will surely be slaves or dead separately.

— Paraphrased from Benjamin Franklin

So, one last look at history.  The UK tried to appease Hitler with the Sudenteland.  How’d that work out?

How Britain Hoped To Avoid War With Germany In The 1930s | IWM (bolding added):

Instituted in the hope of avoiding war, appeasement was the name given to Britain’s policy in the 1930s of allowing Hitler to expand German territory unchecked. Most closely associated with British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, it is now widely discredited as a policy of weakness. Yet at the time, it was a popular and seemingly pragmatic policy.

Hitler’s expansionist aims became clear in 1936 when his forces entered the Rhineland. Two years later, in March 1938, he annexed Austria. At the Munich Conference that September, Neville Chamberlain seemed to have averted war by agreeing that Germany could occupy the Sudetenland, the German-speaking part of Czechoslovakia – this became known as the Munich Agreement.

In Britain, the Munich Agreement was greeted with jubilation. However, Winston Churchill, then estranged from government and one of the few to oppose appeasement of Hitler, described it as ‘an unmitigated disaster’.

Appeasement was popular for several reasons. Chamberlain – and the British people – were desperate to avoid the slaughter of another world war. Britain was overstretched policing its empire and could not afford major rearmament. Its main ally, France, was seriously weakened and, unlike in the First World War, Commonwealth support was not a certainty. Many Britons also sympathised with Germany, which they felt had been treated unfairly following its defeat in 1918.

But, despite his promise of ‘no more territorial demands in Europe’, Hitler was undeterred by appeasement. In March 1939, he violated the Munich Agreement by occupying the rest of Czechoslovakia. Six months later, in September 1939, Germany invaded Poland and Britain was at war.

 

Winston Churchill was called a warmonger, fear peddler, and so many other names.  A war-torn nation understandably didn’t want another war.  But Churchill had read Hitler’s book and had had the moral courage to take Hitler at his word.  His shot to Chamberlain was prophetic.

 

“You were given the choice between war and dishonour. You chose dishonour, and you will have war.”

 

― Winston Churchill

 

CONCLUDING

I understand that you may not like Israel.  You may not even like Jews.  This is beyond that.  Israel is on the front lines of a heating-up renewed war of the House of Islam vs. the House of War.  The enemies are inside the gates of Western Civilization.

Massachusetts: Pro-Hamas Muslim child says he wants to become a martyr (jihadwatch.org)

They smell weakness.  That weakness will only be confirmed if the West feeds Israel to Islam.  The West is already in dire straights.  You say we cannot afford to support Israel?  I say – irrespective of my Judaism – that we cannot afford the enormous exultation and morale boost Muslims would get if Israel falls.

Support Israel now.  With US aid.  With personal donations.  With commerce (here and here).  And do it against the hoped-for day that Islam is driven back and Israel can – finally! – tell the US “no more”.  (I know there’s a movement in Israel to do so.)

Only fools fight in a burning house.  And Islam is a civilization-ending fire.

And on that day, when we’ve driven them back again… potentially even Carthage-style… then I’ll cheerfully celebrate an end to aid to Israel.  For Israel’s sake, to stand on its own and not be captive to America.  And for America, for we cannot afford this support forever as we spiral down a debt black hole.

 

 

And that’s how I’ll close, to people who think that letting Islam devour Israel will buy them peace – Israel’s fight NOW will be ours in the NEAR FUTURE.  Our civilizational enemies speak their goals clearly.  Have the moral courage to take them at their word, the historical perspective to understand that appeasement never works, and the time-proven fact that the longer you wait to take decisive action against a determined foe, the harder it is to win.

 

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

— Sun Tzu

 

Video from the Massachusetts-related link above.  This is your future, America, if Islam wins.  Know your enemy.  Stop them now, or learn Arabic and the Shahada.

ICYMI – Juan Merchan: The Grand Inquisitor

Granite Grok - Sat, 2024-06-08 20:00 +0000

Let’s take a look at some aspects of the “Grand Inquisitor’s” (Juan Merchan) farcical travesty of President Donald John Trump’s NYC trial:

We want to thank Charles Bradley for this Contribution – Please direct yours to Steve@GraniteGrok.com.
You can review our ‘Op-Ed Guidelines‘ on the FAQ Page.

  • Juan allowed Stormy Daniel’s irrelevant sexual dalliance testimony into evidence solely to bias the jury against President Trump. Almost every President since FDR has had at least one paramour–remember Jennifer Flowers, Monica Lewinsky, Paula Jones!
  • Michael Cohen, Juan’s star witness, has told a litany of lies. Cohen is a convicted felon, a perjurer, and a thief who bragged under oath that he stole $60,000 from the Trump organization.
  • Juan excluded Federal Election Commissioner Bradley Smith’s testimony because Smith would testify that neither President Trump nor his organization violated any Federal Election Laws.
  • Juan, from the Bench, harassed Attorney Robert Costello, a highly experienced and skilled criminal defense attorney and Michael Cohen’s former attorney. Then Juan excluded Attorney Costello’s testimony that, when confronted with prison, Michael Cohen repeatedly denied he had any evidence implicating President Trump in criminal activity. The world-famous attorney Alan Dershowitz classified Juan as a “Tyrant.”
  • Juan’s failure to sequester the jury has allowed the biased Mainstream Media and others with Trump Derangement Syndrome to harass and intimidate the jurors into convicting President Trump despite the dearth of evidence against conviction.
  • An unprecedented delay of a week between the close of evidence and final arguments. Fox News Sunday remarked on this unparalleled hiatus. Another opportunity to intimidate the jurors.

 

In summary, Juan, the “Grand Inquisitor,” has allowed an exaggeration of evidence, otherwise known as perjury, against President Trump and excluded any testimony that would have established President Trump’s innocence. In an ironic twist of fate, Juan’s conduct will result in Trump’s re-election.

Dante’s Inferno has reserved a special place for Juan Merchan!

Biden v. OPEC …

Granite Grok - Sat, 2024-06-08 18:00 +0000

As if prices aren’t high enough already, OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) announced at its annual meeting that they will continue current production cuts (5.8 million barrels per day total) through September, thereafter to 3.66 million barrels daily.

Reuters is quoted as the source, but face it, OPEC (mostly Middle Eastern countries) is no friend of the American people, no matter the source. This will mean, yes, thank you, Biden, prices will be going up heading into another winter heating season. Shortages are likely so folks start stock piling now.

This must be a kick in the shins to the Biden reelection campaign; talk about the October surprise, as if the leftists didn’t already have more problems than they can handle now?

Our erstwhile president Biden (yes, it’s a small P), when questioned on this, suggested he might have to tap the strategic oil reserves “if necessary.”

“If necessary.”

Is he kidding? SOR has been hit twice on the old fool’s watch already. What’s he going to do, suck the dregs out through a straw?

Give him an ‘A’ for consistency. He has captured the world record for disasters and failures in any presidency, even among a strong list of fools, idiots, corruptocrats, and the clueless.

So maybe the liberals are right—it may be time for a good, strong dictator.????? No, I’m not biting my tongue, but we do need to vote the criminal Marxists who think our Constitution is only a suggestion out of office, out of administrative positions, and a large percentage into real courts to answer for real crimes.

Alissandra Murray … If You Want To See A Grifter, Look In The Mirror

Granite Grok - Sat, 2024-06-08 14:00 +0000

Ali Murray HATES Riley Gaines because Riley Gaines is a graceful and fearless defender of girls sports … from Woke-Communists like Ali who seek to destroy girls sports as part of their larger quest to destroy (they’d call it “transform”) America.

Actually, the term NAZI may be a better description of Ali than Woke-Communist because her “gender-affirming” medical care is so reminiscent of the pseudo-medical experiments the Nazis carried out at Auschwitz.

First of all, there was no “testimony” by Riley Gaines. The bill in question already had a public hearing which the Woke-Communists packed. Riley Gaines was addressing a House-Senate conference. So either “Rep” Murray has no idea what she’s ranting about or she is LYING.

Second, unlike Ali … whose only form of exercise appears to be moving her bulk from the couch to the refrigerator … Riley Gaines is an actual collegiate athlete. And Riley Gaines is uniquely qualified to speak about males destroying girls sports as she was personally affected by a failed, mediocre MALE athlete who was allowed to participate in female collegiate sports.

The icing on the cake, so to speak, is that Ali is the actual grifter and, indeed, arguably the griftiest of grifters. She is as a practical matter employed by Abortion, Inc. to be a State Rep.

Where Adding Fees for Public Records Is Meant To Leads Us … New Jersey

Granite Grok - Sat, 2024-06-08 12:00 +0000

Unless he’s already signed HB1002, the new tax on access to public records in New Hampshire is still waiting to become law. If it becomes law, many towns will consider it, but the most grotesque government offenders will implement it with extreme prejudice as soon as they are able.

Sixty days after passage.

Nashua, Londonderry, and Dover are drooling in anticipation.HB1002 is their baby—a foot in the door, that camel’s nose, incrementalism to further undermining transparency. The goal is to be like New Jersey. NJ is a few iterations further along; their updated public records law makes fewer records public, and the ones that still are increasingly unaffordable.

The new legislation overhauls New Jersey’s existing Open Public Records Act and could make it harder for media outlets and the public to access some documents, The Hill reported.

It would also continue to limit access to government text and email correspondence and allow agencies to charge more for releasing information — even if the evidence is not in complete form.

Also, the law makes it harder on lawyers to get back fees in cases where requests are wrongfully denied by agencies, The Hill reported.

It is not an extreme possibility. It is the goal.

Nashua doesn’t give a shit about your right to know, and they aren’t even secretive about that, so Jim the Douche Donchess must be jealous of what Gov. Phil Murphy just did. Given the freedom and power, Donchess would sign on to that in a heartbeat because he doesn’t want you to know and likely thinks you are too stupid to understand why. If he were Prometheus, he would steal the fire and keep it for himself because the peasants are too clumsy to grasp how good or great his uses for it are, even when he burns them with it repeatedly.

You are not worthy of such knowledge and entitled only to what Donchess deems to share when he decides to share it. It means what he says and nothing more. That is the state of Nashua City governance, which is not improving while he is in command.

And no, New Jersey did not get here from there overnight, but just like property taxes in the Garden State, it started with a lie on the slightest whisper of a breeze. We want to reduce property taxes with a statewide tax. If you do not know how that worked out, NJ has one of the highest tax burdens in the nation (state and property and the rest of it), while New Hampshire’s is one of the lowest. It is why we oppose NH Dems Jersey tactics – that same whispered lie that a statewide tax will lower your local taxes.

NH already does more with less and has better outcomes, which would end.

HB1002 is a carpenter ant. If we can’t convince the governor to kill it, it will begin gnawing away at the foundations of government accountability until it finds a way to get to where New Jersey is today.

If HB1002 is still in play and Governor Sununu has not yet signed it (he has not, as I write this), they do not have the votes to override a veto.

Ask him to please veto that bill.

Hunter Biden: Someone Has to Say It

Granite Grok - Sat, 2024-06-08 10:00 +0000

As much fun as it is for Republicans to watch Hunter Biden being dragged through the mud in order to ‘prove’ that he lied on a federal form — as if that’s something that should take five days rather than five minutes — the simple fact is that as part of ‘the people’, his right to own a gun is protected by the 2nd and 14th Amendments to the federal constitution.  Period.

There are no exceptions for drug users or convicted felons in the 2nd Amendment, just as there aren’t any in the 1st Amendment.  You don’t have to fill out a form in order to get permission to speak, nor could such a form be used to deny that right to drug users or convicted felons.  Nor could you be prosecuted for lying on such a form if it existed.

That is the heart of the Bruen decision:  That the 2nd Amendment must be accorded the same level of respect as the 1st; that the right to keep and bear arms is not some kind of second-class right.

Unfortunately, prosecutions like this one undermine that decision when we should be doing everything possible to strengthen it.

Which is to say, rather than cheering the fact that Hunter Biden is being prosecuted under laws that shouldn’t exist in the first place, Republicans should be working to repeal those laws — or, if they believe there is a need for such laws, to amend the Constitution to authorize them.

I mean, even Gavin Newsom has realized that placing ‘common sense’ restrictions on RKBA requires amending the Constitution.  Why is it so hard for Republicans to figure that out?

Daniel Richard v. Christopher Sununu, et al. – Sur-Reply to the Appellees Objection to the Appellants Late Authorities

Granite Grok - Sat, 2024-06-08 09:00 +0000

Now comes, the Appellant Daniel Richard, pro se, pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 16 (8), submits this Sur-Reply to the Appellee’s Objection to the Appellants filing of Motion for Leave to file Late Authorities in this election law case, stating as follows:

THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE SUPREME COURT
No. 2023-0097
Daniel Richard v. Christopher Sununu, et al.

  1. On the 3rd day of June, the Town of Auburn has objected to the Appellants filing for leave of the court to file a new late authority from the Supreme Court of the United States, claiming that its recent decision in ALEXANDER v. SOUTH CAROLINA STATE CONFERENCE OF THE NAACP, 22-807 602 U.S.___ (2024), (Alexander) is irrelevant to this instant case, which is simply not true.

Summary

  1. On the 14th day of August, the Appellant file a notice of new late authorities citing the recent decision of Moore v. Harper, 600 U.S. 1 (2023), “Harper” and the New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc., et al. v. Bruen— 20-843 (U.S. June 23, 2022), “Bruen” and the District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), as binding precedent.
  2. Both the Town of Auburn and the state Appellee’s chose not to object to the Appellants filing of these new late authorities (Aug. 14 2023) (Moore, Bruen, Heller, decisions), therefore, they have waived their right to object to the evolution of those precedents as cited in the Alexander decision which cites, and reinforces the Appellant’s citation of new late authorities in recent SCOTUS decisions in Moore, Bruen, Heller, on August 14th, 2023.
  3. The Town of Auburn claims as its objection on pg. 1-2, item 4, that Alexander case is not relevant because it is simply a redistricting case base “racial or partisan gerrymandering” and that did not create binding precedent about – any of the issues at play in the present case”; and on pg. 2. Item 5, that nothing in Alexander case is relevant to how this Court should interpret Part II, Article 32, of the New Hampshire Constitution.
  4. Such a claims by the Town of Auburn has omitted a fact in law. The Smiley court precedent in 1932, established a detailed list of at least 12 other duties of the legislatures of the several states (see below), besides redistricting. The Smiley court (1932) Harper (2023) precedents reinforced a fact in law that a citizen, elector, and taxpayer of a State has constitutional standing under the Article I §4, cl. 1. to challenge ultra vires actions of the legislature.
  5. The Smiley, Moore, and now Alexander decisions, are a line of redistricting cases going back to Smiley in 1932, which examined in great detail the Federal Elections Clause (Article I §4, cl. 1), and the duties of the legislatures of the several states when exercising their law-making powers under Article I §4, cl. 1.
  6. The Appellant cited in his Memorandum of law on standing, filed on 24th day of April which stated on pg. 6, that the Smiley court (1932) examination of Article I §4, cl. 1, specifically listed twelve other important duties of the state legislatures besides redistricting. SCOTUS lists some of the state legislatures’ other duties under Article I §4, cl. 1, duties besides redistricting on pg. 21—22 of the Moore v. Harper opinion:

“By fulfilling their constitutional duty to craft the rules governing federal elections, state legislatures do not consent, ratify, or elect—they make laws. Elections are complex affairs, demanding rules that dictate everything from the date on which voters will go to the polls to the dimensions and font of individual ballots. Legislatures must “provide a complete code for congressional elections,” including regulationsrelati[ng] to notices, registration, supervision of voting, protection of voters, prevention of fraud and corrupt practices, counting of votes, duties of inspectors and canvassers, and making and publication of election returns.” (Emphasis Added) [Smiley v. Holm, 285 U.S. 355, (1932)]; (Moore v. Harper et al. (2023)).

  1. On the 29th day of November at oral arguments neither the Town of Auburn, nor the state Appellee’s address any of the federal questions, and failed to object to the late authorities of August 14, 2023. Therefore, they have waived their right to object now.
  2. On the 25th day of April, the state Appellee’s, responding to the courts request for supplemental brief on the issue of standing, and chose not to address any federal questions, and it failed to object to the Appellants late authorities of August 14, 2023. Therefore, they have waived their right to object now.
  3. On the 25th day of April, the Town of Auburn also filed a supplemental brief on the issue of standing. The Town acknowledges a fact in law on page 9-10 of their brief, that the Federal Election Clause, Article I §4, cl. 1, is controlling, and binding on the N.H. Legislature.

See Kibbe, 142 N.H., at CITE (“At the same time, we have long recognized that the legislature is entitled to regulate the time, place, and manner of elections in New Hampshire…” (emphasis added)); see also U.S. Const. art. 1, s 4 (“The Times, Places, and Manner of holding Elections  for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the legislature thereof, but the Congress may at any time by law make of alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.” (emphasis added)).

  1. The Plaintiff’s right to vote in State and Federal elections is protected by both the Const. N.H. Part I, art. 11 and U.S. Constitution Article 1, Section 2, and the Seventeenth Amendment and the laws written pursuant thereof. As the manner in which the Federal elections are conducted is question, and now under, Smiley, Moore, Alexander, line of cases under Article I §4, cl. 1, must now be examined under the Heller, Bruen, methodology applies, as the Plaintiff’s Federal voting rights are affected. The plain text of the Plaintiff’s voting rights is satisfied as he is an inhabitant of N.H. (defined by the Const. Part I, art. 11), and the Plaintiff is one of the people under the U.S. Constitution Article 1, Section 2, and the Seventeenth Amendment. Therefore, these cases are relevant and controlling in this instant case.

“Although the Elections Clause does not exempt state legislatures from the ordinary constraints imposed by state law, federal courts must not abandon their duty to exercise judicial review. This Court has an obligation to ensure that state court interpretations of state law do not evade federal law.” Moore v. Harper et al. (2023) Syllabus Pg. 5.

CERTIFICATION

I, Daniel Richard, do hereby swear that on June 7, 2024, I did e-mail a copy of this to all the named Parties via the Supreme Court web portal.

Dated: June 7, 2024

Daniel Richard

VERIFICATION

I, Daniel Richard, certify that the foregoing facts are true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief.

Night Cap: Read a Koran

Granite Grok - Sat, 2024-06-08 02:00 +0000

What does Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom have in common with Islam? Aside from the movie being a fantasy both are about murder/terror cults. Oh yes it is, kidnapping and slavery alive and well in the Muslim world to this day and feminists should be going crazy that in Islam a woman is worth 1/4th that of a man (Read a Koran).

Any poor woman raped in the muslim word must have four muslim men testify in her behalf or she can be put to death (Islamic law)- Read a Koran.

Did you know Muhammed married a 9 year old girl, yes he did, (Read a Koran) and to this day a Muslim father can sell or give away a 9 yo daughter.

Ever hear of “honor killing”? Muslim fathers can kill wives or daughters for offending Muslim traditions or disobediences to his commands. yes they can (Read a Koran).

And don’t get me starter on “The Religion of Peace.” Go on your computer for “the religion of peace” if you are lazy and don’t want to get a Koran.

Religion of Peace? The Koran has 109 verses dedicated to war with nonbelievers and very few dedicated to tolerance and peace. All Muslims must engage in this war directly or indirectly or they’ll be condemned to hell.

This has been the ideology for 1400 years. It’s a bad ideology.

Since 9-11 there has been 45,293 terrorist attacks world wide. In the past 30 days, 98 attacks. In 2023 there were 1,784 attacks that killed 11,424 people and injured 12,999. In 2022 there were 1,198 attacks killing 9,025 people and injuring 6,815. In 2021 there were 2,281 attacks, 11,831 dead 9,599 injured.

The list goes on and on like this for more than a thousand years of wars of conquest, slavery and terror.

Not so very peaceful really.

Mistrial? – Trump Verdict Announced in Facebook Post a Day Before the Actual Verdict (Ruh Roh!)

Granite Grok - Sat, 2024-06-08 01:01 +0000

The world is so weird that the judge in the Trump case (34 felony convictions) just notified all parties that a Facebook post was discovered announcing the verdict before the verdict was announced.

Here is the official NY Court System PDF.

People v DJT 6-7-24 Letter to Parties

It all seems legitimate, but so did the justice system.

All things being equal (and just), this is likely grounds for a mistrial and the 34 felony counts being vacated pending a retrial. Or something. The lawyers can help me out with this. I don’t have much more to add than this excellent response to the original.

I know he’s joking, but seriously. Jurors are forbidden from discussing the case with anyone, including each other, outside the deliberation room. This is a huge breach, but given the railroading we’ve already witnessed, can we expect anything approaching typical procedure in this circumstance?

Closing thought: What if the leak was deliberate as an escape valve for what was a very poorly handled and badly executed political persecution? It’s kind of like Biden’s sudden rebound on the border, except what Biden did was meaningless. This. This would be something.

Not Sure How I Missed This Ridiculous Thing – “Ms. Monopoly”

Granite Grok - Sat, 2024-06-08 00:00 +0000

Back in 2019, Hasbro released a woke feminist version of one of its more historically popular board games, as Monopoly. Ms. Monopoly “recognizes inventions that women created or contributed to and gives bonuses to female players.”

That’s the sanitized Wikipedia description. What they mean by bonuses is that “Women get $1,900 at the start of the game and receive $240 salary when passing “Go,” whereas men start with $1,500 and receive a $200 salary.”

I’m not sure who made those choices, but my first thought was how insulting it is to women. In the regular version, everyone starts out the same, and sex is irrelevant. Gameplay and a bit of luck decide who wins. An observation shared across the political spectrum.

Reception towards Ms. Monopoly was mostly negative upon its announcement. Eric Thurm, the author of “Avidly Reads: Board Games”, said the game created a “surface-level fantasy world” where women succeed simply because of their gender. Madeleine Kearns of National Review called it “patronizing pointlessness”. Queens College‘s philosophy department head Christine Sypnowich said it was “unhelpful to portray women as needing special advantages.” Jennifer Borda, an associate professor specializing in feminist studies at the University of New Hampshire, suggested that it would be more suitable if male players instead faced challenges women face in the workplace.

I’m not sure what those challenges are. I know they exist, but I am not a woman, so I can’t possibly see that work through their eyes. I can say that even back in the 70s, I had female superiors. Bosses. Managers. No more or less competent than their male equivalents. They either knew and did their job, or they didn’t. Sex was irrelevant. I understand that’s not true everywhere, certainly not then and to some extent now, but these days, women graduate college at higher rates and make decent money, not that it matters in this economy.

There will always be glass ceilings and hurdles. Women haven’t made any sort of an inroad into men’s professional sports (for obvious reasons), and there aren’t very many female undersea welders or oil rig workers. I could list dozens of high-paying, dangerous jobs women don’t want, and there is an equally long list of things women don’t want in many other jobs that make them less of an asset and that likely affect pay.

Men and women are different in many ways, including how they view work, location, willingness to travel, hours, commitment, and job choices.

Ms. Monopoly does us a disservice by making assumptions that even women find insulting.

Maybe Monopoly needs a Trans Ms. Monopoly. A world where men pretending to be women have more rights and opportunities than actual women.

We’ll be waiting.

As We Remember D-Day, Could It Happen Today?

Granite Grok - Fri, 2024-06-07 22:00 +0000

Before we answer the question in the headline, we need to reflect on D-Day in 1944. This action was the largest multinational assault in history. The invasion force included 7,000 ships and landing craft manned by over 195,000 naval personnel from eight allied countries.

Almost 133,000 troops from the United States, the British Commonwealth, and their allies landed on D-Day. Casualties from these countries during the landing numbered 10,300. By June 30, over 850,000 men, 148,000 vehicles, and 570,000 tons of supplies had landed on the Normandy shores.

The average age of American servicemen that day was 20. Barely out of high school, some lied about their age to volunteer; these heroes were the pinnacle of patriotism and sacrifice. 1944 was a point in time when there was a national love for our country. It was fashionable to be patriotic, and few would dissent from that national wave. These men and women left home to go to fight and die for future generations to enjoy peace and freedom. Some went to Europe to fight the Germans and Italians, while some, like my dad, went to the South Pacific to turn back the Japanese. They did their jobs in both theaters, came home, built a great country, and never spoke about their experiences. They did not start the battle but banded together to shut it down quickly and became the Greatest Generation, a title they will never lose.

Today, patriotism is challenged rather than embraced. You only need to look at the unrest on college campuses in May, where students occupied. Courtyards and buildings alike in an attempt to get these schools to suspend financial activities with Israel. These ignorant young adults have been indoctrinated since the first day they set foot in a classroom. They have been told America is an evil country built with the blood and sweat of Black slaves. They have been taught that capitalism is corrupt and designed so that only the rich do well. They are convinced that our Republic is broken and should be replaced with a Socialist form instead, where everyone has an equal outcome regardless of the effort invested.

How could we ever see these ungrateful individuals setting aside their dreams and wishes to come together and put their lives on the line to thwart a foe who wants to harm America? It is unrealistic, and we best hope that there is no Third Reich on the horizon, or we best learn to speak German.

We are seeing the beginnings of countries positioning themselves to become the sole superpower in control of the globe. China is attacking us economically and killing our citizens in their prime with Fentanyl. They are buying up our farmland and setting up thousands of illegal pot farms nationwide. They have been stealing our intellectual property for years, and our men and women have shown their stripes. Rather than rallying around the flag and saying not in our backyard, recruitment numbers are falling well below goals.

The Greatest Generation will be gone in a few years, and they will pass knowing that no future generation will threaten their title. It was well earned, and I am sure it gives them no satisfaction to see what America has evolved into. Today’s America is not what their brothers and sisters spilled their blood for. We salute and thank you, men and women of World War II, and we are sorry for what happened on our watch.

As the great President Ronald Reagan said in 1984: “If not us, who? If not now, when? The Greatest Generation said we will, and now. God Bless them and wrap his arms around them.

A Broken Border Is Not The Same As A Broken Immigration System

Granite Grok - Fri, 2024-06-07 18:00 +0000

This Biden administration and his minions have been lying to us since January 20, 2021. They have been working tirelessly to confuse the American people by convoluting the broken, wide-open southern border with a broken legal immigration system the government has not addressed since the Reagan administration.

Whenever anyone presses the President on the chaos at our border, he gets defensive and says he has done all he can do and only Congress can give him the tools to close the border. Baloney! Biden created an open border on his first day with an executive order. Under Speaker McCarthy, the House passed H.R. 2 nearly two years ago, a comprehensive immigration bill sent to the Senate and buried by Chuck Schumer. Schumer refused to bring the bill to the floor for debate and vote, as they would rather gaslight the people, telling them the Republicans are standing in the way. Biden destroyed the border, and now he wants to ride in on his white horse to fix it.

Biden has said for years that if given the power and money, he would fix the border. Well, this afternoon, Biden will prove himself wrong as he plans to sign an executive order addressing the asylum issue that is creating a bottleneck at the border and pushing court dates for illegal crossers 5 to 7 years out. We all know the bleak chances of these “newcomers” ever seeing the inside of a courtroom unless they are arrested. Biden announced the signing of his executive order on Tuesday afternoon and started with a lie. Biden explained he has to take these dramatic steps because Republicans will not negotiate on a comprehensive immigration bill. That is absolutely false, but nobody calls him out on it. An immigration bill involves people coming into our country legally. It handles how many and who we let in. Legal immigrants are vetted, issued green cards, and placed on a path to citizenship. Immigration has nothing to do with people wading across the Rio Grande, crawling under concertina wire, and claiming asylum as they give themselves up to a border agent. These people have created their first illegal act in the United States with their actions and should not be lumped in with legal immigrants.

Biden continued to paint a vile picture of how MAGA Republicans will mishandle the border, which is why he has to take action to fix it himself. That is tantamount to me throwing a baseball through your living room window and then knocking on your door, saying I am the only person stepping up to fix your broken window. He spoke about Republicans tearing children from their mother’s arms and locking them in cages. First, you see the videos. Do you see any family units coming across the border or hundreds of single men? Secondly, the cages he refers to are the original Obama/ Biden cages, and to date, the Biden administration has lost over 85,000 minors in the system. It is suspected these children are now either in the illegal sex trade or underage labor force.

Nobody is inboard for this action. The Far Left is upset that the daily number was cut from 5,000, and the path to citizenship is unclear. The Right wants to know why now and why we are letting any illegals in.

Biden’s plan allows up to 2,500 illegals a day to enter our country before the border is closed. If the border is closed and secure, why are we allowing any illegals to enter? This executive order is a desperate Hail Mary as Biden continues to drop in the polls and he sees reelection slipping away. Had he not destroyed Trump’s plan out of spite on day one, he would not have to fix the problem. What Biden did today was show up to fix our window. Please do not give him the ball back.

Friday Meme Overflow

Granite Grok - Fri, 2024-06-07 16:00 +0000

As promised in Monday Memes, I have an overflow. Let the mayhem, mockery, and ridicule close out the week.  Let the mayhem, mockery, and ridicule resume:

*** Warning, a few definitely off-color ones, in case tender eyes are about ***

 

 

My pride, 24/7/365.

 

>>>>>=====<<<<<

 

 

Let me be clear:  If The Potato stays in office, America is certainly done.  If Trump gets in, America may still be done.  But at least – even with a fair amount of trepidation – with Trump I believe there’s a chance.

 

 

 

 

 

That’s actually a good point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is no “misinformation”.  There is only information TPTB don’t want us to see.

“Just following orders”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In my mind there is ZERO doubt they wanted to provoke a confrontation of some sort.  And, oh look, Trump got shot and killed.  Awwww, what a shame.  Right?

 

 

There is wisdom in the saying “What we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly”.  These days, with women seemingly eager to just give it away, there’s no value anymore in courtship or delayed gratification…

PSA – PSA – PSA – PSA – PSA

 

 

The plan, all along.  Treason.  And straight from Bertolt Brecht.

 

 

And this is a must-read essay from a few years ago:

How the Left Wins Elections by Transforming Nations – Daniel Greenfield / Sultan Knish Articles at DanielGreenfield.org

Demographics is destiny. The left is reshaping countries to match its demographic targets. It is turning nations into one great gerrymandered district composed of populations that are more likely to support it. It is doing this using immigration, economics, social policy and every tool at its disposal. And if conservatives don’t start understanding the demographic game of thrones, then they will lose the war.

 

Stop.  All.  Immigration.  For at least 50 years.  At least.  And deport those who came here illegally – regardless of anchor baby status.  (Because you know every fertile illegal is doubtless working on getting preggers.)

Borepatch: Rubicon

Many analogies to Rome.  Links in the original.

The most important leader at the beginning of the end of the Roman Republic was Tiberius Sempronius Gracchus,  He was the guy who noticed that while the Roman Republic had swept all foreign enemies before it, the working class had suffered despite the great riches of empire.  Tiberius Gracchus decided to run for public office despite his great family wealth, and to put forth his formidable political skills to benefit the Roman Working Joe.  He failed, because the Roman political establishment buried their traditional political differences in the face of Gracchus’ challenge, and in fact had him killed.

In short, the Roman Deep State closed ranks to block needed reform.  It was the beginning of the end of the Roman Republic as long cherished political norms (Mos Maiorum) were cast aside.  And so two generations of the Roman political elite were exterminated in a civil war so profound that what was left of the exhausted Republican Elite welcomed the first Imperator with open arms because he ended the civil wars.

Kevin Landrigan … A “Reporter” Who Speaks The Language Of The Left

Granite Grok - Fri, 2024-06-07 14:00 +0000

Kevin Landrigan … a “reporter” who works for the “conservative” Union Leader and who speaks the language of the Left. Males (biological males for you bitter-clingers when you prefer redundancy) playing girls’ sports are “reported” as “trans girls.” That is NOT reporting that is advocating:

And here is “reporter” Kevin amplifying the Woke-Communist propaganda by retweeting their propaganda … and using their rhetoric: “anti trans.”

The Union Leader is a NeverTrump trash-tabloid and Kevin Landrigan is as a practical matter a spokesman for the NH-Democrat Party.

Of Course, Vermont Has an Unconstitutional Religious Test

Granite Grok - Fri, 2024-06-07 12:00 +0000

Have you ever seen someone you used to know whom you thought was put together well? Then you run into them years later, and they look like they just gave up. That’s Vermont.

A shadow of its once great self, unwashed hair but lots of make-up, searching other people’s pants pockets for change to feed the washing machine at the liquor laundromat.

No unfiltered Lucky Strike hanging from one chapped lip – they more or less banned those things. And so it goes. The home state of Calvin Coolidge. A land carved out between New Hampshire and New York in part by a militia and a will to self-govern, and look at it now. It gave up. Democrats rule. The state even banned militias. So, it should be no surprise that this same state has an unconstitutional religious test.

A pair of Christian foster couples is suing the Vermont Department for Children & Families (DCF) for allegedly blocking them from taking on additional foster children due to their Christian views on gender and sexuality. …

Brian and Kaitlyn Wuoti and Michael and Rebecca Gantt began fostering in 2014 and 2016, respectively, with the Wuotis adopting two brothers and the Gantts taking in three children. Brian Wuoti and Michael Gantt are both Christian pastors, as well.

Seeking to renew their license in 2022, the Wuotis were initially hailed by a caseworker who said she “probably could not hand pick a more wonderful foster family,” but mention of their Christian faith and “that they could not say or do anything that went against faith-informed views about human sexuality” prompted their license to be revoked, according to the lawsuit.

If you want more details on that, the internet has plenty. I’m not here to tote that barge or lift that bail. I’m more interested in the culture behind it—the dangerous political undertow visible at a distance, like the flag pole problem in Nashua. It’s just a flag and a pole, but that’s not the matter that should concern you most. As I noted here, yesterday,

What’s the worst that could happen? The City has to stop pretending to be non-partisan and unbiased; no more citizen flags of any stripe. That’s what Boston did after wasting two million dollars defending its viewpoint discrimination and losing. Let them do that and then we get to ask them what else about their administration is just like the flagpole

The answer is probably everything.

Nashua also has a criminal disregard for public records law. That’s a problem, but the real issue is what lies beneath it. So it goes with a State like Vermont, which—without any public announcements or citizen approval—deployed and enforced a religious test for foster parents. You’d be a damned fool to think there isn’t one for other features of State government or that the culture that abets such a thing hasn’t poisoned other wells in “the community.”

The volume of impropriety is a proverbial iceberg.

It is why we pushed back so hard on a bill to charge fees for public documents. It is why we pushed back on a Camel’s Nose red flag bill proposed by a Republican. I don’t care what protections you think you included. You can make all the sensible arguments you want; this will lead to abuses whose risk is far greater to life and liberty than the odds that a mentally unstable person will look for and find a gun-free zone in which to harm others with a firearm (the cure to which is to ban gun-free zones by the way).

We do not open these doors. They are hills to die on. And the religious test is not a fluke. It is evidence that the patients are running the asylum, and if you bother to look, you can see the results. Higher taxes. Declining services. Dumber students. Increased lawlessness. Drug crimes. Drug deaths. And the only answer the inmates can think of is for you to give them more money and power. A cabal that calls you names and tries to destroy you if you dare to push back.

And you voted for this.

So, when you think about the case of the Christian Parents, remember that this has nothing to do with their faith or yours. It is about the demise of a once great state that valued natural rights before political power. That’s what this is about. It is about watching that political system gnaw away at your rights until you have none (in the name of Democracy, no less). And you can choose to continue to ignore it or not.

It’s your state.

But I don’t advise it.
