“The urge to save humanity is almost always a false face for the urge to rule it.”

--- H. L. Mencken

About a week ago, I wrote to warn about what Democrats plan to do to go around the will of the voters should Trump win, even if his win is decisive. VOTE IN PERSON, I said, to make as sure as you possibly can that your vote will count, and be ready for anything after the votes start coming in. That’s especially true if your state is considered to be, even possibly, a “swing” state.

Democrats aren’t even bothering to be secretive about their plans; Madame Defarge herself (Hillary) says that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should Biden concede. And the WASHINGTON POST ran an op-ed saying that only if Biden won in a landslide would there be no rioting and looting afterwards. It was like saying, “Vote for us, the looters and rioters, so your life won’t be destroyed by looting and rioting.”

Since I brought you that story, the threat has been clarified even more. What the left is trying to do right now is straight out of a George Orwell novel. Recall that in “1984,” the “Ministry of Truth” is actually in charge of just the opposite: maintaining a fiction.

An excellent piece by Michael Anton in THE AMERICAN MIND (thanks to Dan Bongino for calling attention to this) explains just how Democrats have been setting the stage for a coup in the case of Trump winning the Electoral College. This is a must-read.

Over the summer, Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) began laying the groundwork by suggesting Trump wouldn’t go quietly if he lost. Why, the military might have to save us from him. Pieces like Zachary Cohen’s for CNN first tried to cast doubt on Trump’s fitness for office, asking “Can military commanders refuse an order from Trump?” Cohen reassured his frightened readers that with the “layers of safeguards” we have, the President can’t unilaterally deploy a disproportionate nuclear attack. I’ll provide the link to this ridiculous commentary, but read it only if you’re absolutely sure you can keep your head from exploding.

Here’s another completely crazy one, by a couple of retired Army officers wanting to further the scenario of Trump playing “dictator” and refusing to leave the White House if he loses. This is based on nothing other than Trump warning about mail-in ballots and election fraud. (News flash: Trump is absolutely right about mail-in ballots and election fraud. Why do you think Democrats are pushing so hard for mail-in voting? It’s so they can discredit the results if Trump wins, and also to set the stage for chaos.) People actually read this piece of drivel, and I’m sure some took it very seriously.

Then there was the WAPO story we talked about last week: John Podesta’s George Soros-funded “war games” seminar at which about 100 Democrat leaders and some anti-Trump Republicans –- so they could use the word “bipartisan” –- looked at all the possible election scenarios. (Here’s the Orwellian part: this was called “the Transition Integrity Project.”) In the scenario of Trump clearly winning, Podesta, playing the role of Biden, refused to concede (just as Hillary has advised), pressured even states won by Trump to send a Democrat slate of electors to the Electoral College, and “trusted the military to take care of the rest.” In other words, vote for Trump and bring on the coup.

What would follow a Trump win, they said, would be “a street fight, not a legal battle.” Recall that we GOT a legal battle in the aftermath of the George W. Bush/Al Gore “hanging chad” election, with Democrats using the legal dispute forever after to claim that Bush wasn’t a legitimate President. That mess will look like a picnic in the park compared to 2020 if Trump wins, they’re warning. This time, it’s gonna get rough.

And, of course, it will be all Trump’s fault.

So the second part of the plan is to make sure we think it IS all Trump’s fault. The AMERICAN MIND piece goes on to explain why the Democrats have chosen to speak so freely for months about the likely need for an anti-Trump coup. That one’s easy: they’ve got to get the idea of a coup out there –- A COUP CAUSED BY TRUMP –- with the threat that we’ll have “a repeat of this summer, only much, much bigger.” Then, when the time comes, “crank the propaganda to eardrum-shattering decibels and fill the streets of every major city with ‘protesters.’ Shut down the country and allow only one message to be heard: ‘Trump must go.’” And you know the media will do it, blaming Trump for the whole mess.

So, how does the Trump administration prepare for a clear electoral win in which Biden won't concede, when Democrats are already busy twisting the story into the opposite of that? Maybe the Republicans need to play out their own “war game” scenario. In case there is a coup, they also need a clear idea of who is on their side. And the President needs ways to communicate with the American people that can go around most of the major media. (Tweets won’t do it; he’ll be banned, of course.)

Trump had better be ready, and we need to be warning about this from now till Election Day. I believe, just as I did in 2016, that Trump will win. It’ll have to be a landslide to overcome the inevitable mail-in ballot fraud, but he will win. I just don’t believe that THAT many Americans have utterly lost their minds. Democrats will insist Biden really won and that any “coup” is Trump’s fault, but it’s a lie they’ve been setting up for months.

I’ll leave you with an opinion piece about this that is guaranteed not to make your head explode, by Jonathan Tobin in the NEW YORK POST. But take heed: it is very much a warning.



My new book with Steve Feazel, “The Three C’s That Made America Great: Christianity, Capitalism and the Constitution,” is available for order now at Amazon, and you can now read a free excerpt from it at the link.

I hope you’ll get the book, read it, and pass copies on to all of your friends and relatives who think they’re well-informed about history and current events because they watch Rachel Maddow and Stephen Colbert. You can explain to them that all those pages in the back with the little numbers on them are footnotes that list the original sources for historical facts. They’ve probably never seen anyone cite an actual historical fact before.



A BLM rioter in Portland attempted to kick a Molotov cocktail at the police and set himself on fire, creating an instant flurry of memes that set the Internet ablaze, just like his pants. Some added music to his hot-footed distress, including Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire,” the dance tune “Footloose,” and the Benny Hill classic, “Yakkety Sax.”

P.J. O’Rourke once said that the difference between liberals and conservatives is that liberals will tell you there are things you’re not allowed to laugh at, while conservative say there are things you shouldn’t laugh at. For instance, you shouldn’t laugh at someone who’s obviously in painful distress, like bounding through the streets with his pants on fire. But then, you consider that he is in that predicament entirely because of his own disregard for other people’s safety. If his plan had worked, he would have set police officers on fire. It becomes as hard to feel any sympathy for him as it does to feel sympathy for a terrorist who mistakenly blows himself up. So I’ll just say that while we really shouldn’t laugh at this, it’s very hard no to when it’s set to “Yakkety Sax.”

And speaking of young radical idiots, Friday night in Manhattan, a group of these leftist thugs went on a window-smashing spree, attacking businesses and causing at least $100,000 in damages as they chanted, “Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground” (they’ve also taken to carrying banners that read “Death to America.”)

Eight of these commie delinquents were arrested, and one was identified as Clara Kraebber, 20. Clara just might be the poster child for white privilege. Her daddy is an Upper East Side child and adolescent psychiatrist who teaches at Columbia University. Her mom runs a prominent Manhattan architecture firm. They own a $1.8 million apartment in Manhattan and a second home with four fireplaces in a tony Connecticut town. Clara’s been engaging in various “social justice” protests since she was a 14-year-old student at the elite Hunter College High School. She’s now attending Rice University, where she’s a member of the Rice Young Democrats and volunteered for “Beto” O’Rourke’s failed campaign.

I wonder how proud her parents are that she’s now facing up to four years in prison for first-degree riot charges? I also wonder how many scrapes they’ve bought her way out of, and how many times they’ve shielded her from learning anything about responsibility or how other people have to work and struggle to build businesses like the ones she allegedly smashed?

Maybe she’ll finally learn to appreciate the value of hard work and doing something useful after four years of making license plates.


The Trump campaign is running ads in fuel-producing states, hammering Joe Biden for his vow to end all fracking and his nonchalant disregard for how many jobs would be destroyed. Not surprisingly, that’s driving down Biden’s poll numbers (although I think the real reason is that most people don’t start paying attention until Labor Day, and the more attention anyone pays, the less suitable for the job of President Joe Biden looks.)

So Biden is now denying that he plans to ban fracking. The media are even trying to convince us that he never said he would ban fracking (who you gonna believe, him or that lying videotape of him?) It must really be hurting his numbers because even his running mate Kamala Harris, who has been strident in her anti-fracking stance, is now trying to convince us that, oh poo, she never said any such thing.

At this link is an excellent round-up of what these people really said, the level of damage it would cause if they got their way, how they’ve flip-flopped, and why their entire rationale for banning fracking is based on junk science.

I just keep saying this, but it’s because they just keep giving me opportunities to: This is not a political issue, it’s an IQ test. If you seriously believe what Joe Biden is telling you now, which is 180 degrees away from what he said before his polls dropped, and you really believe he’ll stick to that once he’s safely elected and not pivot right back to his previous position, then your IQ is probably in the room temperature range.

    Remember when Big Brother announced that chocolate ration was increased from 10g to 5g per week? I think we have the same double-think situation with the Biden team and fracking. Speaking or Big Brother, I noticed this morning that Google has inserted a COVID tracking app on my phone. Ostensibly, it is turned off. Yea, sure it is, and there really is a tooth fairy too. I can not believe what I am seeing with these old eyes of mine. Even Orwell's thought police didn't imagine we would be carrying the telescreen in our pockets. Just think, if George Orwell was alive today, he would be turning in his grave.

    Thanks for reading,

    I just read the "four scenarios" of the "Transition Integrity Project's" report. Scenario Four had what they called a "Clear Trump Win" of electoral votes, but a popular vote win for Biden. There was NO scenario where Trump won both the electoral vote and the popular vote. Also, the predicted actions were based on very biased concepts of what Trump and Biden would do in the aftermath.

    Here is an appropriate selection from the book of Isaiah: "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and ever in their own sight. Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and champions of mixing drinks, who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent." (Isa. 5:20-23 NIV)

    I believe all democrats are demon possessed ! The devil came to kill, steal & destroy. They kill babies, try to steal election with dead people & illegals voting and they are destroying our nation.

    Unless God intervenes and ensures this November election goes overwhelmingly to Trump and republicans, I fear it will be the end of our great country.
    The democrat party has every intention of preventing a Trump win because they know no shame nor have any morals at all. They are the demon possessed, America hating, corrupt, insurrectionist, lying, hating, baby killing, burning, looting, murdering, anti-christian, party of death. (No I'm not judgmental, just an action inspector!)
    All of the rioting and chaos has occurred in democrat controlled cities such as Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Kenosha, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Phoenix, Portland, Richmond, Seattle, St. Louis, and Washington, DC! In virtually all of those locations the criminals have had the support and even encouragement of the democrat leadership. There is a document produced by the democrats and Trump hating republicans, "Preventing a Disrupted Presidential Election and Transition" that documents their election day plans depending of different scenarios. They are in the event the election produces an "Ambigious Result" where it is questionable which one wins, the election produces a "Clear Biden Victory", a "Clear Trump Victory," or a "Narrow Biden Win!" Each scenario has a specific strategy to prevent a Trump/Republican victory and the action they will take to ensure Trump does not stay in the Whitehouse come January 20, including using the military to drag him out and over throw the government if it comes to that. The following is a link to that document.

    Please pray for God's mercy on America this November and following!

    George Soro's name keeps popping up (and not in a good way), so why can't he be investigated for treason or sedition...or any number of nasty crimes he has his grubby fingerprints on?

    I'm certain there must be loyal and patriotic FBI agents that would love to see him fitted in prison orange. Sadly, it seems like the left gets a pass and avoids the law while conservatives are prosecuted. I don't get it.

    My wife and I pray daily for our country and President Trump. I understand President Trump can’t send troops to end the riots, but something needed to be done before our country goes up in flames. We are very concerned about our children and grandchildren. As I said, my wife and I pray daily that God will intercede to help our President win in the upcoming election.

    The thugs destroying the cities lighting buildings on fire or stealing its contents while in progress or they are running away, and if the limited police force should arrive instead of sirens the police should play the National Anthem and spray Marijuana smoke or laughing gas in the air instead of teargas that should get the Thugs to kneel down and be captured with out resisting arrest or other acts of violence.
