…DeSantis: Principled Pragmatist

In Ron DeSantis we have a man who is acutely aware of the systemic rights violations to which Deplorables are subjected and is attempting to pragmatically govern in accordance with first principles.

Let us recount some of the ways:

When Texas’ Greg Abbott “flat-out banned vaccine requirements; Florida Gov. DeSantis quickly followed suit. Rejecting the jabs-for-jobs deformed public policy, DeSantis vowed to sue the Biden administration. These two governors have been unique in upholding natural, inalienable, individual rights—the right of self-ownership and bodily dominion.

As inoptimal as DeSantis’ “Big Tech” bill was—the governor was the only Republican to have proceeded against Deep Tech in any meaningful way.

The governor was also unique among powerful men to spring into actions on behalf of the Canadian Truckers for Freedom. The Canadian Truckers converged on Ottawa, early in 2022, to reclaim their Charter rights and protest Trudeau’s anti-constitutional Covid-driven apartheid.

GoFundMe is an American crowd-funding site. It had happily collected and distributed funds to detritus like BLM (Black Lives Matter), which, by the most basic of measures, are scum of the earth. Having received $9 million dollars in donations for the Canadian truckers, GoFundMe right away announced it would steal the funds and funnel them to charities of its choosing.

Here was a crime in progress. DeSantis’s response to the GoFundMe cyber-robbery was righteous, principled and proactive. He tweeted:

“It is a fraud for Go-Fund Me to commandeer $9M in donations sent to support truckers and give it to causes of their own choosing. I will work with AG Ashley Moody to investigate these deceptive practices — these donors should be given a refund.” The thieving outfit soon backtracked pursuant to DeSantis’ show of force.

And how is it that only Gov. Ron DeSantis grasps that it’s illegal for state attorneys, whose job description is to uphold the law, to nullify the very law they are paid to enforce?

As the only elected official smart and dedicated enough to grasp and govern in accordance with first principles, DeSantis fired State Attorney Andrew Warren for “effectively nullifying Florida’s criminal law.” Unheard of. The great governor of Florida has also been steadfast in accelerating his pipeline of criminal aliens to the affluent areas of the northeast. …

The Illiterati Strikes: Stupid, Slothful And Nasty

America, Culture, Education, English, Etiquette, Ilana Mercer, Intelligence

The letters-to-the-editor came quick and steady. Some were repulsively nasty. None of the authors could read, reason or write. All had the attention span and concentration powers of a gnat (with apologies to the gnat community).

For some reason, the image conjured by the bare-fanged fury of one letter writer is of Lisa Simpson, transformed into a mountain of immobile, doughy flesh, in “Mama’s Watching Her Stories.

Unable to read or comprehend a paragraph, the writer, Annemarie, launched into a sneering screed:

If you haven’t yet realized your egregious error—if only one is present—William is the elder grandson of Elizabeth, married to Kate, who together have three children. Harry is married to Megan Markel and they have two children. I couldn’t even finish your commentary as I began questioning other statements you made as I read. Sorry Ileana, but your credibility is shot with me: in my estimation you now rank right up there (or should I say ‘down there’)with the rest of the “woke” media—you have list all credibility with me. I am extremely disappointed that the editors at WND allowed this column to get into print because your dismal transposition reflected badly on them as well.

My reply about the words (in “Bar Meghan Markle From The Great Lady’s Funeral“), which the dolt was unable to read and comprehend:

It’s sad that you’d rather shoot your mouth off nastily, believing you are being clever, than read with care.

Here is the correct excerpt, without your imagined contortions. You appear unable to deal with, 1. A long sentence. 2. An em-dash in the middle of it. 3. Capital “B”.

Omit the em-dash— it’s like a clause—and you’ll get the “correct answer.”

Next time, read, and re-read before dashing off a hateful note to someone who toils thankless for liberty with her capable WND editor. I’ve separated the paragraph into sentences to make it easier for you.

William worked as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot.

Before marrying that dolt from TinseltownMeghan Markle, who imagined she was a match for the queen of England—young Prince Harry had served in Afghanistan, and wore his Afghanistan Campaign medals on his brother’s wedding day. …

To my surprise, there were more such letters.

And, Boobus Americanus is headed for the voting booths.

An aphorism from one of Oscar Wilde’s plays came to mind. I paraphrase: “She thought that because he was stupid he’d be kindly, when kindliness requires imagination and intelligence.”

Stupid is usually mean.

WATCH: From Iron Lady To Party Girl – Individualism Vs Feminism

WATCH HARD TRUTHFrom Iron Lady To Party Girl – Individualism Vs Feminism,” with ilana and David Vance.

SUBSCRIBE.

In their latest HARD TRUTH podcast, ilana and David Vance tackle the staggering decline in the quality of female political leaders. From the UK’s Iron Lady, the great Maggie Thatcher, to Finland’s pouting Party Girl Sanna Marin, why has it all gone so badly wrong? Ilana captured the essence of Lady Thatcher years ago when she observed that Thatcher was an individualist, not a feminist. By contrast Sanna Marin is a feminist not an individualist. She also happens to be a fool. David argues that feminism has destroyed any merit in female political leaders and more than a few XY ones!

ilana and David both agree that it is unfortunate that women ever got the vote, as that coincided with the feminisation of politics, and ilana bravely agreed to give up her vote if the whole thing could be undone, but it can’t! As a final topic, the role of Donald Trump in going along with the lockdowns was discussed… HONESTLY.

Uvalde Catastrophic Failures: Systemic Rot In ‘End-Stage America’

Affirmative Action, America, Crime, Education, GUNS, Intelligence, Kids, Morality

“Cops had come a cropper, refusing to respond to reality on the ground, deaf to the cries and telephone calls of brave babies”–ilana

We know her not by her name, but by her deeds, and those are heroic. She aimed, shot and dispatched to hell one Dennis Butler, a career criminal, who was poised to do mass murder in West Virginia. A birthday-graduation party got too noisy for his liking.

She had a handgun; her opponent an AR15. More crucially, the Lady from Charleston had the male bits and the moral compass that upwards of 19 police officers, hunkered down at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas—all SWATTED-up and swaddled in Kevlar body armor—were without.

At the same time, the trapped children cried out to 911 as they were being mowed down. They screamed for stupid grown men to quit cowering and pondering bureaucratic distinctions—active shooter or barricaded shooter—a distinction without a difference if the barricaded shooter is also shooting up kids. Do not rest in peace, Uvalde Angels. Rage from the heavens.

The Uvalde cops had been milling about, in-and-out of the school corridor, since 11:35 AM, on May 24, 2022, waiting on a key to open a door behind which little children had been dying since 11:33 AM.

These cops waited for The Key until 12:50 PM, when “a Border Patrol Tactical Unit officer finally breached the room using a janitor’s keys.” And no. Despite the gushing on Fox News, that Border Patrol Tactical Unit officer is no hero. Doing your job eventually—when that job is defined by the credo “time is of the essence”—is not heroism.

How overpowering is the instinct to worship. Lawrence Jones of Fox News showed himself
an idiot, blaming 911 for the Uvalde Police’s disgraceful failure to engage an active shooter. However, the protocol is clear. You go to the fight. Law enforcement is obliged to engage a known active shooter. An assault rifle was being fired feet away from Law. The sound would’ve burst eardrums like grenades. There was no communication breakdown; only a categorical refusal to respond to reality on the ground.

Cops had come a cropper, refusing to respond to reality on the ground, deaf to the cries and telephone calls of brave babies.

Absent keys, often under the excesses of no-knock warrants–these state operators, whom we pay for protection, have no qualms deftly deploying tactical entry equipment, such as battering rams, to kick in our doors on the slightest suspicion, and without knowing what’s on the other side.

This time, they knew that on the other side of the door, starting at 11:33 AM, more than 100 rounds had been fired into classrooms 111 and 112. In fact, as the officers stood inside the school structure, at 11:37 AM, the shooter fired 16 more rounds.

Forgive the hyperbole, but “I was only following orders” excuse for evil action or inaction comes with hefty historical baggage. For those whose education comes courtesy of American schooling, the reference is to the Nuremberg Defense.

A society is institutionally rotten, certifiably so, when the cries of little kids and a few women being blown to bits do not make grown men drop their poisonous progressive protocol and run to the rescue.

“‘Go in there! Go in there!’ women shouted at the police soon after the attack began.” It was worse. As shown in this YouTube clip, watched over 500 thousand times, parents writhe in agony, crying like wounded animals caught in a trap as their children are slaughtered.

WHAT DOES THE STATE DO? The UniParty state workers–the cops, the SWAT–they do zip for the kids being killed, but turn to tase parents wild with grief to prevent them from charging to get their babies. Evil in action.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz proposed “hardening” the schools by creating one-door schoolhouses. Just you wait for the fire, the stampede and the bodies piled high before that single point of egress.

You can’t fix stupid. How you gonna fix a teacher who runs inside the school and leaves heavy door wide open for the shooter in-chase? You can’t. How you gonna fix cops who have no urge to charge, obey evil, unintuitive orders and turn on heroic parents? You can’t fix stupid. As Ron White, that great satirist from the once-great State of Texas, teaches, “You can’t fix stupid.” “There is not a pill you can take, not a class you can go to. Stupid is forever.”

The Stupid Party says, “Just arm the teachers.” You want to train and arm teachers and faculty staff members to protect your kids? Have you seen what falls under the category “teacher”? Seen the people who zealously inculcate ungrammatical pronoun illiteracy? Who promote and make systemic anti-white racism and exotic age-inappropriate sexuality? Have you seen these mountains of flesh videoing themselves gyrating obscenely? The same “dedicated” pedagogues who took two years off for COVID?

Get kids out of US schools!

US schools, incidentally, are well capitalized. They have active-shooter training and security protocols in place. What they don’t have is decent human capital. Decades of emasculation and preferential hiring account for a low-intelligence, self-serving work force, lacking in the higher-order capacity for altruism and heroism.

What was it that Oscar Wilde said about kindness? “She thought that because he was stupid he would be kindly, when of course, kindliness requires imagination and intellect.”

Differently put, you are witnessing the systemic rot in what Michelle Malkin has dubbed “end-stage America.”
