To save you time: Althouse: Don't compare human beings to animals. Don't say "pride land was overrun with the hyenas"! Your father was called a racist for his statements and policies on immigration, and "pride" resonates with white pride and Proud Boys. Why would you do that? Sheer stupidity? Comments: Ken B said... Down with Aesop! Wince said... "Some articles pointed out how the clever, cunning Scar... subjugates the destitute hyenas as his servants." Well, you have to admit that is the Democrat playbook. tcrosse said... "Pride" is the word for a family of lions.

Oh my, those comments at the Althouse link are lol funny. How much I love people that can make me laugh on a dark day. I think TM proved that he is indeed a gracious host with this post.

Can someone post the Dyer essay that MT excerpted? I can't find it.

I've got to walk the dog, but I found this and I think it sums it all up. https://gab.com/nineeleven/posts/105586324723663747 t’s irrelevant what Trump did or didn’t do. His mere assumption of Presidency led to a hysterical response that discredited the entire system in the eyes of hundreds of millions. That genie isn’t going back in the bottle. I’m very grateful for these past four years.

So we tried the Tea Party, we elected Trump, we built conservative leaning social media alternatives, and organized rallies to support the president's policies and we still couldn't overwhelm the one party state. Angelo Codevilla says we are now an oligarchy. Clearly, it is back to the blogs we go, from where activism on the right first coalesced and the Tea Party emerged. Passive resistance can be as effective as active sabotage. We need to start thinking of ways we can do this without sacrificing the safety and well-being of our families until we have to. Personally, I love the idea of car/boat rallies continuing, meeting up with "elected" officials whenever they have a ribbon cutting, naming ceremony, townhall, event, or declared office hours. Remind them we're here. All the time. Watching.

MM, remember a few years ago--probably six or eight--when we figured out the publisher of that series of illustrated biographies of the youth of American heroes? I read them in third and fourth grade; my school library had them all. I read those too. Loved them. Definitely had more of an effect on my love of country than anything I learned in school.

rse, I've been following Alex Berenson on the education side of COVID lockdowns. This popped up as a response to one of his tweets: Renee Ann, MD @ReinerFuellmich Replying to @AlexBerenson and @LibertyOne8 I said this from day 1. I spent the last 2 plus years reading about personality development, self development, brain waves, books from the 1930’s to present almost 500. This is all predictable. This was predictable on day 1. Read Myron Hofer or Developmental Social Neurosciences These kids are all gonna have the brainwave patters - maybe not as bad as the abuse kids - of developmental trauma. This is more beta in the right posterior, alpha suppression and increased alpha in the Left front. Executive function in the toilet along with HPA regulation. Anecdotally, I'm already seeing this with my daughter's friends. They have lost the confidence to engage with classmates and have retreated to their home base and are in coping mode. That can't be healthy and it sounds like they will have the brain development to match development from external traumas - war, etc.

Yes, some of us did engage in “naval gazing.” Call it relentless optimism, if you like, naïveté. I wish to believe in the principle of people of honor, I chose to believe that Pence was one of them. Wrongly, it is clear. I don’t think I’m going to stick around here. It’s clear our host does not agree with us, and I’ve always felt that it’s bad manners to espouse opinion in direct disagreement with a host. I’ve been lurking at the Horde and see some folks from here at New Neo. Maybe I’ll find time to chime in, though I plan to be more busy in real life. I have a house to get in order. I wish you all the best, hope to meet you in real life, and pray that we weather the next few years with our country and our pride intact. Take care.

The fact that I can’t reasonably expect my cast vote to mean anything bothers me tremendously. Yes. I'm hopeful that I'll be able to go in person to change my voter registration this week. I no longer care about voting in primaries in NY state.

Yes, Robin. Our school district was quick to send out an email about "processing" the day's events and providing "a space for a peaceful constructive dialogue." of course that will be a zoom space, so whatever.

Well, I fully admit that I was wrong. I thought Pence was an honorable man, but in the end he wanted to save his own ass and abandoned the movement. I thought the 2012 election was a kick in the teeth, but the last two months have been so demoralizing that I simply don't know what to do. Like some of you, I live in a divided household - my husband and I do not agree in any way on what happened in the election. He is convinced that I am crazy when talking about the election. Our kids are split - the high school teen is brainwashed (my constant project) and the 20-something thinks it should all be burned down, but that Trump was just as evil as the rest of them. I haven't been able to get on The Donald either - have they been blocked?

I'm with Jane, I'm feeling rather upbeat on this first day of 2021. Even if Biden is sworn in, I have faith that the next three weeks are going to be about the disinfectant of sunlight on all of the corruption. Biden will be hamstrung before he even walks in the door. We're in a war. 74 million Americans are pissed and open to the idea of deep rot within our government structure. To think that Trump won't burn it all down on his way out is kind of unimaginable. The only question is how he will do it.

2020 is such a mixed bag for us, but I am most grateful for my nuclear family. Everyone really showed their best selves over this long year - between shutdowns, my injury that put an enormous burden on everyone else, my son's plans being completely derailed - I'm so proud of our kids, who have stepped up, and I love my husband dearly for leaning into the "for worse" part of marriage with his usual kindness and grace. I can't wait to visit family and travel and get back to my usual physical outings on paddle board and skates!

Happy New Year! Amom, I didn't realize that Rogan lost touch with his dad at age 7. I find his curiosity so refreshing! Surrounded by people who live by their dogma, it's nice to hear someone say, I think this, but I could be wrong! He and I graduated high school the same year, and he reminds me of so many guys I knew growing up. Got our $600x3 direct deposited the other night, pending a 1/4 delivery. Haven't decided how to handle, but will probably be paying our high deductible for my surgery with it. Best wishes to all of you!

Buffy, I was the Connie Willis fan. Her time travel to the plague is also quite good. My favorite is a novella she wrote called "Bellwether," which is so funny that I was laughing out loud in the grocery store. It's about a social scientist who studies fads, and might require a reread right about now. There's a scene where she and a coworker are trying to herd sheep onto a truck, and well, if you've ever tried to get sheep to do anything you want...

That American Thinker article was good. Our "betters" ought to be considering this likelihood: Reason 3: The election fraud–denier was afraid of violence that investigation of election fraud may lead to. Unfortunately, many of those in positions of power who could order serious and impartial investigations of the alleged election fraud and possible overturning of the results, if proven fraudulent or invalid, were concerned with a threat of violent riots of left's militant organizations, like BLM and Antifa. Some could have been trying to save our country a civil war or something equally horrible, while others were afraid for their own safety. As much as I disagreed with their decision to support the cover-up of election fraud, their position had a dose of rationality. Imagine that you are a judge or a justice, and you have a family to feed and protect. Wouldn't you be concerned that your controversial judgment may irritate BLM or Antifa into bringing their "protests" to your neighborhood and trying to harm your spouse and your children or burn down your home? It seems likely that without violence by BLM and Antifa earlier this year, the well orchestrated election fraud would not have stood a chance to be left uninvestigated. If a thorough investigation proved that the results were invalid, Mr. Joe Biden would not stand a chance of being declared the winner. The above realization implies that we are seeing a dawn of mobocracy in the U.S. as a replacement for our Constitutional Republic as a form of government. That spells out bad news for virtually everyone, including even the mobsters. We need brave leaders who will put the safety of law-abiding Americans in front of these leaders' personal safety and political interest. The mobocracy goes both ways and I think that Birx, having multiple homes, won't miss one. Fauci too no doubt.

Yon is pretty convinced that we are going hot civil war, isn't he? Back to Nashville: we are still in the watch-and-see mode, and so I reserve public speculation other than to say this looks as though someone has/had a grasp on CARVER planning. If the communications node was the target, this attack could range from a lone-wolf, one-shot scenario, to a test shot, and probe, for future attacks at the front end of the 2021 American War. One certainty: of all the years I have spent in wars and conflicts, I have never been to a country that is more vulnerable to itself than is the United States. Means and Motive? America is filled with millions of highly educated people with incredible skills. Tons of people who put rockets into space as their day job. Others design communications infrastructure, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, metals, magnets, computers. Having spent more than half my life overseas, I've never seen any country with such a deep bench of amazingly serious people who have direct access to amazingly serious nodes and other vulnerabilities. As a war correspondent, most telling is that more than 36 hours after the attack, relatively few people on any side have openly condemned the attack. This lack of condemnation provides a clue to our 2021. I've been wondering how long before someone blows up a newsstation.... or Reuters headquarters.
