Have we seen this situation before? Well, yes, we have, and another reckoning point is near

On 6 July 1775, the Continental Congress published a document, in the name of all Americans, that was called “The Causes and Necessity of Their Taking Up Arms.” The document announced an impasse between Britain and most of her North American colonies and explained that British North Americans would no longer tolerate British tyranny and were ready to take up arms against their oppressors. Written by John Dickinson and Thomas Jefferson, the document said, in part, that,

We are reduced to the alternative of chusing an unconditional submission to the tyranny of irritated ministers, or resistance by force. — The latter is our choice. — We have counted the cost of this contest, and find nothing so dreadful as voluntary slavery. — Honour, justice, and humanity forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage upon them.

Our cause is just. Our union is perfect. Our internal resources are great, and, if necessary, foreign assistance is undoubtedly attainable. We gratefully acknowledge, as signal instances of the Divine favour towards us, that his Providence would not permit us to be called into this severe controversy until we were grown up to our present strength, had been previously exercised in warlike operation, and possessed of the means of defending ourselves. With hearts fortified with these animating reflections, we most solemnly, before God and the world, declare, that, exerting the utmost energy of those powers, which our beneficent Creator hath graciously bestowed upon us, the arms we have been compelled by our enemies to assume, we will, in defiance of every hazard, with unabating firmness and perseverance, employ for the preservation of our liberties; being with one mind resolved to die freemen rather than to live slaves.

That document speaks to our day as much or more then it did to that of Dickinson and Jefferson.

As Independence Day, 2018, nears, I must admit that I have laid off domestic politics for a while and spent the time trying to understand what is going on in the republic. On the one hand, readers of this space will know that my perception has long been that America was striding toward civil war, and so a heavily armed citizenry was increasingly necessary. On the other hand, I have had an unattractive tendency to retreat from that reality and say no, that can never happen again in the United States. In essence, the reality of what I have seen and heard with my own eyes and ears since the 2016 election was continually questioned by a foolish old man who really did not want to admit with finality that he clearly saw what was approaching.

My cowardly timidity began to end with the shooting in Las Vegas which was explained away with such ludicrous statements that any foolish old man — even me — would be angered by it and at those elitists who thought the citizenry so stupid that it would accept the absurd, always changing stories as truth. My reaction was strengthened when the corrupt from top-to-bottom FBI sent a Comey-friendly, senior officer to keep a lid on the incident’s aftermath and to keep fueling the lie-laden information being dispensed to Americans about a one-man attack that killed and wounded hundreds of their fellow citizens. It is pretty clear that those people were shot by operatives who worked for or with the Democrats precisely because they believed them to have voted for President Trump.

My failings were shredded once for all when Representative Nancy Pelosi identified her — and her party’s and its members — support for the grotesque MS-13 barbarians as “children of God” and worthy of respect as human beings. This, of course, is not surprising as it is pretty clear that Democrats used MS-13 gangsters to murder the DNC’s IT employee Seth Rich. Pelosi’s statement was the end for me, and it left me wondering who the armed citizenry should begin deal with first, any tattoo-faced MS-13 butcher who is seen, or Pelosi and any Democrat who agrees with what she says on almost any topic. My conclusion was that the two groups and most of the media are really just one entity and so all merit the same steady and simultaneous attrition.

Also, helpful for me in making this judgment was the absolutely clear decision by the Democrats that they — and their predatory media — are no longer willing to abide by the election results. Their fantasy that the thief, murderer, and perhaps pedophile, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote and so should be president, speaks clearly to the fact that the Democrats not only do not understand the Constitution but that they want to destroy it and the governing system it inaugurated. They only understand and want permanent power and the riches they can steal therewith.

The simple truth is that no sane American would ever allow the Electoral College to be abolished. Even today, such a change in the Constitution would result in the nut-bag Democrats who run New York, California, Illinois, the states of New England, the Pacific Northwest, and a few mid-Atlantic states, together with the illiterate scum of the earth the Democrats have brought en masse into the republic to vote illegally and deepen its bankruptcy, would be a permanent national government. That government would rule arbitrarily to serve its members’ own overriding interests; namely, (a) permanent dictatorial power, (b) pedophilia and other extreme forms of sexual deviancy, and (c) the acquisition of enormous riches.

I have tried to leave the forgoing without nuance because there is no longer any point in using nuance — too often a tool used to be polite and dull truth’s edge — and even less to give any Democrat the benefit of the doubt. The last indulgence all Democrats should be granted is a short-time period — say until 1 August 2018 — to allow the Trump Administration to act against them as mercilessly as is permitted by using the full weight of the law against them and their transgressions. If this period passes, Americans are in the happy position of already being well-armed and in possession of an initial, partial list of miscreants who are in desperate need of attrition.

Where is that list? I have noted below four videos that are very helpful for the purposes of identification just mentioned. Each video discusses a list of 3,000-plus recently unsealed Federal indictments from a total that now exceeds 40,000. The unsealed indictments — less than a tenth of the total — are arranged in an easily searchable Excel spreadsheet. The data displayed is fascinating on its face, but focus most attention to the last column on the right in the second video, which consists of links that can be clicked open to allow the reader to review what surely appears to be a copy of the separate federal indictments that have been issued for each individual listed on the spreadsheet. (NB: The list includes men and women; Democrats; establishment Republicans; U.S. and foreign political, social, and religious leaders; celebrities; and rich private-sector business people in American and around the world.)  Several of the videos are hosted by a rough-and-ready, independent commentator whose language can be a bit salty, but his on-point commentary on the spreadsheet is an invaluable aid in assessing the list and showing the swamp’s massive, republic-killing population.

All told, the information presented in the videos is quite persuasive. Even more persuasive is the complete lack of interest in this matter so far shown by the mainstream media, the pro-Democrat online media, and even some of the so-called pro-Trump new media.

Take a look at the videos and judge for yourselves.
