Is Trump Actually Doing Something For Liberty?

After being subjected to what millions of Americans have been subject to since, at least, 2002, President Donald Trump has managed to engineer the thwarting of the National Security State’s demand that the FISA Reauthorization bill be passed. And he is using the rationale of the spygate-Obama scandal to make his case for short circuiting this affront to liberty.

Folks this is big news to me, and a huge win.

  1. I’m still praising him for allowing states to make individual decisions on opening businesses. The stats are: 20 states rising in virus cases, 22 lowering at a steady pace and 8 states flat lining. Not all predicaments are the same.

    We’ve had one case of the virus here in NoFl and our Trump supporting governor has already opened beaches and small businesses with the necessary precautions in place.

    Sorry if I went off topic but the title of your post did include the word “liberty.” 🙂

    The Breitbart article starts off like this:  “After President Trump announced he would veto any FISA reauthorization bill, without a full investigative review of prior FISA abuse so that legislation could be created specifically to fix the severe flaws in the process,”

    Jeepers, so now Pelosi is suddenly not eager for an investigation.

  3. Some 500 “social activists seeking justice”  burned a police precinct.    They did not loot for weapons and ammo, body armor; police radios to listen in on everything, uniforms to impersonate…records and access to corrupt records.  Minneapolis wholly surrendered to disorganized violent idiots – and it continues

    This is madness.  This tells the nation that when Hell knocks on your door, you will burn,  “Trump blasts Minneapolis ‘thugs,’ warns mayor US ‘will assume control,’ shoot looters if needed'”  Too little, too late.  IF YOU are not armed and practiced, you are cheap meat.

    What will you do, little person, what will you do when the world pivots Left?  Do you own a  sharpened machete?  A baseball bat?  What will you do, little person, what will you do?

    Isolate myself in a gated wilderness preserve. Keep plenty of cash available if I have to flee. Still have memories of Detroit race riots in 1967 as a child when my parents moved us all up to our summer house in the UP. Guns are useful of course but perhaps not all that effective against mobs. I don’t like those odds or the “Black Lives Matter” protests that would inevitably ensue.

    BHO had a true opportunity to calm unnecessary racial tensions but he purposefully chose to inflame them so I’m afraid it’s every man for himself.

    I am not sure what this has to do with the Surveillance State being–if even oh slightly–inconvenienced by not having the veneer of legality shrouded over the violations of natural rights. Frankly I am more pissed off by what the Surveillance State is doing than what the folks in Minneapolis are doing. It’s funny, there weren’t riots there BEFORE an agent of the State, i.e., a cop, decided to kill someone who was obviously under control and could have been moved to squad car. Funny how that works. I guess revolts against oppressive State action is only for certain people?

    The methods of revolt matter. So do the targets (including the Targets). Violent attacks innocent people and businesses who had nothing to do with police action is neither rational nor justified. Looting is not protest. Funny how that works.

    Thinking about the same thing today and without any graphs, charts, or quotable “experts” to opine, this is what I know:

    There is a significant percentage of black Americans (sorry folks, I don’t do hyphenated) who pay no attention to how Trump has tried to help their community and have zero respect for Rice, Thomas, Williams, Carson, Sowell or Steele (to name but a few). BHO, on the other hand, works hard to ensure racial tension even out of office. The irony of his bi-racial background, his refusal to acknowledge his Caucasian grandparents who raised him and the fact that he wrote a book about the Marxist father who abandoned him leaves me speechless and alienated.

    The victim as recipient of hand-outs has become such an ingrained idea in much of black culture, I believe it is here to stay. 60 years of this nonsense is quite impossible to walk back. Author Shelby Steele is particularly despondent about this and writes about it consistently. Of course the people who should be reading his books certainly are not.

  8. I am of the opinion that this is a managed crisis based on the fear of loss of over a third of the minority vote.

    There are still trillions of dollars at stake and losing a third of the most loyal voting block has incalculable cost .

    It will get uglier as we approach the Globalists Alamo. No quarter.  Two  of the three major governmental units of the Globalists , the DOJ and the DNI are lost to them. If they lose the House it is over.

    I expect external action by China coordinated with more internal riots as we build up to election day.

    Hold Fast.

    I attended Tilden HS in Brooklyn, NY coincident with Al Sharpton.

    “Some people just need killing.” Barry Eisler, The Night Trade

    Sure, but the Rev. Al ain’t the one violating your natural rights to be secure in your person as guaranteed by the 4th Amnd. Do the violators of your rights not deserve “killing”? We are too wrapped up in this stupid Red vs. Blue BS that we are more than happy to direct our wrath against people who have done absolutely nothing to us while we don’t even raise a peep about those who have. Reforming or outright dismantling FISA is much more important than a burning Target store in a city that no one has any immediate plans to visit.

    And Doc, I take your point about burning down businesses not being a protest. That is absolutely correct. The owners of those establishments did not kill that guy. But the burning down of police precincts? Oh let me get my cigars so that I may light them off the flames. When I see that, all I see is the tree of liberty being watered.
