This isn’t your grandpa’s United States of America. Unless your grandpa was a secret Communist spy.
The government of the United States is no longer your friend, nor even your servant. It stares at you with cold, inhuman eyes like a Terminator, while shooting sparks out of its butt. Because while it may be hostile, it’s also deeply dysfunctional. Less like The Matrix and more like the dictatorship of Venezuela, on a much, much larger scale.
And probably your local government too. Not just if you live in a blue state either, though there it’s much more obvious. The Uvalde massacre tells us that the State is just barely functioning even in rural Texas.
Like the Last Days of Batista in Cuba in 1959
The U.S. no longer bothers to guard its own borders. It didn’t investigate the thousands of looters who trashed whole cities, firebombed courthouses, and threw firebombs at cops. It’s pouring $40 billion into a plan to kill lots of Russians and Ukrainians over some meaningless border disputes. But it can’t provide affordable gasoline, or baby formula at any price.
It’s putting resources instead into terrorizing political opponents, from the January 6 defendants to parents who attend school board meetings. Like a crumbling Third World regime, its sole focus is repressing domestic enemies, while the whole place crumbles into ruins. Batista’s Cuba in 1959 comes menacingly to mind. You might remember it as the setting for the best scenes in Godfather II. Except now there’s no America to flee to.
The Two Party Oligarchy
This is the world that the Democrats gave us. But not they alone. It’s equally the product of Establishment Republicans, who’d rather see the left triumph everywhere than treat their populist, Christian base as human beings with legitimate interests. They Deplore us as much as the Democrats do, maybe even more. The gay-led “conservative” magazine National Review is gaslighting us into a game of nuclear chicken with Russia, and still scorns solid evidence of 2020 election fraud. Now Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to sell out our constitutional gun rights, to leave us completely at the mercy of this decrepit regime, which is run by extremists who hate us.
Are you paying attention yet?
No You Can’t Rescue Your Children
If you want to check the life signs of the American Republic, take the time to read this appalling report by Human Events of the massacre in Ulvalde, Texas. Read it all, every last bitter word. The shooter was permitted into the school with a deadly weapon, and allowed to terrorize and kill for a solid hour before police breached the building. Desperate parents were already there, some of them with firearms, begging the cops to act — or let them go in and rescue their children themselves. (As several cops apparently had, extracting just their own kids.) At least one mom (after getting out of police handcuffs) escaped their clutches, ran in, and came out with her kids.
In case you have some fantasy of the parents suing the police, be aware that they’d lose. Solid court precedents from federal courts affirm a fact that might surprise you: The police are not legally obligated to protect citizens from crime, not even students in school. That’s right. Go read the decisions for yourself.
Surely, though you’d expect that Texas cops would want to risk their necks protecting students. Except that they didn’t, while 20 died. Not for an hour. Why?
Most cops are beaten down, terrorized by nuisance lawsuits and race-hustling politicians, and increasingly unwilling to risk their necks on behalf of a public that demonizes them. So they adjust their function. Instead of protecting us, their job is now to show up and prevent us from defending ourselves and our loved ones — and arrest us if we try.
Here’s video of the cops using the power of the State to keep parents from saving their hunted children. (Profanity.)

Our Oligarchs knew what they were doing when they hounded Jake Gardner to suicide, for defending his aged father against a maniacal black felon. It’s what they tried to do to Kyle Rittenhouse, too. And what they’re doing to the January 6 protestors in our Gulag on the Potomac. Make an example of them. Smack down any peasant who gets too uppity, and destroy him publicly to intimidate all the others. It’s how the Spartan regime kept its wretched helot population terrorized and obedient. And it’s the last task the U.S. government seems to consider indispensable.
Dang, idiot Biden even gropes PICTURES of children. Having that lying criminal in Uvalde only adds insult to injury. Will he go to the border he totally screwed up while he’s there?
It is far more important to the totalitarian-minded politicians to have people afraid and defenseless so they can use their protection as a weapon.
I don’t know about the Uvalde police department, but I speculate that their main function has been rounding up loose cattle, arresting illegal immigrant drunk drivers and the occasional burglary. Note that when the elite BP squad showed up, action was taken.
Also, a point I have thought of is, has anyone ever seen the classroom doors in schools? They open out, into the hall, the frames are steel and the doors either steel or solid wood. Whether the Uvalde police wanted to or not, they aren’t just bashing in the door.
All things considered, it was still a catastrophic tragedy all the way around. Having corrupt politicians exploit the pain and suffering for their political agenda is disgusting.
Uvalde Police Department Releases Statement: Thankful “Officers Did Not Sustain Any Life Threatening Injuries” After 19 Children And Two Teachers Are Dead
BREAKING: DOJ to investigate botched police response to Uvalde, Texas school massacre
Gee, I hope they are not taking resources away from tracking down those rebellious parents that challenged school boards’ diversity and inclusion policies.
1989 landmark case DeShaney v. Winnebago County Department of Social Services, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the failure by government workers to protect someone from physical violence or harm from another person did not breach any substantive constitutional duty.
June 27, 2005, in Castle Rock v. Gonzales, the U.S. Supreme Court again ruled that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm.
Police keep body bags and forms to fill out AFTER the fact.
Time has come t o take dangerous people off the strets and allow Crime Victims to bring a Suit against the ACLU one of the liberal groups that is preventing these people from being sent to the Nuthouse
“Systemic failures” in Uvalde shooting went far beyond local police, Texas House report details
Of course it went far beyond local police, though local police should have responded long before the number of law enforcement officers on the scene swelled to 376. That’s what comes of an authoritarian command structure riddled with incompetence.
It’s also what comes of lax gun laws, and ignoring what we’re seeing again and again.
Sen. Roland Gutierrez, who represents Uvalde, says it’s a “slap in the face” to be left off committee responding to shooting
I guess they don’t want the Democratic Senator representing Uvalde to be making any observations about a systemic Republican failure.
