Hanging out at the corner of Goebbels and Beria

 If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.

    Joseph Goebbels

Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.

    Lavrentiy Beria

We've been inundated with people who believe both aphorisms the last couple of years and, in the end, they apply to the accusers more than to the accused. The tendency of the Left to apply fascist or Nazi to anyone who dares disagree with them or, even better, who wants to undo all their wonderful accomplishments is becoming a textbook example of the principle that what we hate in ourselves is what we criticize in others.

Consider the latest risible examples: Surrounding the lying dogfaced pony soldier with his own begleitkommando to hide from view his inability to walk; Speculation concerning how the phalanx of Dr Morells keeping Brandon going will keep him upright, coherent (well, sort of), on the mark, and off the phony stories when he faces Trump, even if it is on Commie News Net. Even better, if Trump can be brought up on charges of hush money and adultery and has no immunity, what does that do for all the riders on the Lolita Express? After that, we get to all the abuses aimed at the J6ers and the myriad violations of the Constitution, justified much like the aftermath of the Reichstag Fire.

Then there's the ouster of the Slob from the outfit he created to rule the world. Well-connected and even better financed, whose guiding principle was replace democratic models worldwide with a model of elite stakeholders who make decisions on behalf of the people. He obviously thought the time had come, but the world has been telling him his side lost back in '45. Now there's just a couple more superannuated Nazis and a bunch of over-the-hill Radicals looking down the barrel of real charges. Just as Zippy acquainted many with the work of Saul Alinsky, so has the current crowd made many of us (who haven't been paying attention the last 52 years or so) aware of exactly what all those tolerant, compassionate Liberals really believed.

Is it over? Doubtful, but, as Winnie Churchill noted, "It wasn't the end, nor even the beginning of tghe end, but it was the end of the beginning". We still have to get past November, but the mood of the country is far different from the days college kids started yelling, "Let's go, Brandon". Now Trump rallies in Jersey, MI, NV, NH, VA, and, for crying out loud, Da Bronx.

There's something happening hereBut what it is ain't exactly clearThere's a man with a gun over thereTelling me I got to beware

Paranoia strikes deepInto your life it will creepIt starts when you're always afraidStep out of line, the man come and he takes you a-way

It's time we stopHey, what's that sound?Everybody look, what's going down

Call me a cockeyed Romantic, but I think life's about to get interesting.

Suspicion and Doubt have cornered my optimism.

The surprise (shock), disbelief and confusion I experienced after sitting in my tv chair and hearing soon after the polls closed that Trump was pulling ahead of Biden with a significant lead in the Michigan count, only to hear soon after of an unheard of halt in the counting (not only in MI but in 4 other key states) to discover in the early hours of morning that Biden had somehow miraculously pulled ahead just enough to be the declared winner, is still very much with me.

Something was off then. And the presidency that followed has been so deceit-ridden, corrupt and off center since, I continue to hold suspicion and doubt that more manipulation, unlawful influence and string pulling is in the works, regardless of who the majority of American people want and legitimately vote for as their candidate.

That said, I appreciate your optimism and post, edutcher.

Mama, the most encouraging thing I've heard is that the Donald Trump RNC is not going to just sit there and take it.

The anti-Brandon sentiment is too great to try to get away with something like that again (although you never know), and I think the Demos will try to steal Congress as they did in '22 (OH is a classic example). Whether they get away with it is another story. Again, the Undocumented Democrats aren't running things this time.

PS Thank you.

Consider how, from kids yelling, "Let's go, Brandon", we broke the lockdown, and then refused the Shot (which is a big reason we'll win in the end), and now have the American people marching against the Demos.
