We’re Further Down the Rabbit Hole Than You Think, Alice.

President Lyndon B. Johnson signs the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 at the base of the Statue of Liberty

American’t: From Midterms to End Times

By Selwyn Duke

Truly great disasters come like a thief in the night. How many foresaw Rome’s sacking in 410 A.D., her collapse 66 years later, WWI or WWII? As for today, how many see that the United States is at what some call a tipping point, what others may call a Fourth Turning? Whatever you call it, the American republic is in its last days. This is too scary for many to contemplate, but there’s something far scarier: playing ostrich and not being prepared for things to come.

The so-called Left, ever violent since its French Revolution birth and as power hungry as ever, wholly controls the culture: the media, mainstream and social; academia; and entertainment. This means it controls long-term politics, since the latter is downstream of culture. So is big business, mind you, which is why the Left controls most of it as well; this, of course, translates into funding.

Trump’s 2016 victory will not MAGA; it was merely a stay of execution, a prolonging of the inevitable. This should have been obvious in a country that could elect Barack Obama and then, like the Titanic having backed up to hit the iceberg again, re-elect him. If it wasn’t, it should be obvious now that the Democrats have seized the House in a Watergate-level rout.

The notion that this was a standard result for a president’s first midterm is only comforting when viewing matters in relative terms; that is, the “‘political spectrum’ always has a right and left side no matter how far ‘left’ that spectrum moves.”

The problem? Civilizational ebbs and flows (and collapses) are governed by absolutes, such as right and wrong; not relative qualities, such as right and left. Thinking otherwise is like supposing your transition from stage-one to stage-four cancer as a 70-year-old is like when you went from a bruised arm to a broken one as a 12-year-old because, well, both involve movement toward diminished states of health.

But this isn’t your grandfather’s Democrat Party. Voters this time empowered socialistic to socialist to closet-communist, sexual devolutionary, rabble-rousing, low-I.Q., no virtue, ignorant freaks who often encourage political violence by their Antifa-Brownshirt useful idiots. So it’s not your great-grandfather’s America, either.

Digging into the electoral numbers also tells a tale. Ninety percent of blacks, 79 percent of Jews, 77 percent of Asians, 69 percent of Hispanics and 59 percent of women voted Democrat — same as usual. Can we stop now with talk about “Blexit,” the “Walkaway” movement, how “Hispanics are natural conservatives,” how Jews are waking up to the Left’s anti-Semitism and all the other connedservative self-delusion? People vote in accordance with their emotional and philosophical foundations, and “You cannot reason a man out of a position he has not reasoned himself into,” as Jonathan Swift put it. Fooling oneself doesn’t help.

The voters are only getting worse, too, for three basic reasons: immigration, indoctrination and moral corruption. Let’s consider the first.

Demography is Destiny

Ever since the nation-rending Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 took effect in ’68, 85 to 90 percent of our immigrants have been Third-Worlders, and 70 to 90 percent of them support Democrats upon naturalization.

1965 at the base of the Statue of Liberty

This has caused a historic demographic shift (and attendant electoral one) that has seen our nation go from 85-plus percent white in 1965 to only 61 percent non-Hispanic white today. Let’s define further the political impact, using conservative figures.

We absorb approximately 1.3 million legal immigrants annually. If one million ultimately remain and are naturalized and 50 percent vote, and 80 percent of that group breaks Democrat, it means a net plus for Democrats of 300,000 voters every year and three million every decade.

The latter was Hillary Clinton’s purported 2016 popular-vote advantage.

This also translates into 15 million new Democrat voters after half a century, which was as much as Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 popular-vote margins combined. Of course, illegal migration and resultant amnesties would only increase these numbers, but are wholly unnecessary to effect this cultural and electoral annihilation. But not all un-American mentalities are imported.

 We Can’t MAGA Unless We MAMA

“The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next,” the apocryphal saying goes. Today’s brainwashing, not just by academia but also media and entertainment, is intense. Moreover, we can’t MAGA unless we MAMA — Make America Moral Again. As Ben Franklin put it, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.” Yet academia, media and, especially, entertainment subject each generation to an ever intensifying demoralization process.

So let’s crunch some more numbers. Between Trump’s 2016 victory and Election Day 2020, more than 10 million Americans will have died; mostly older, they’re a relatively conservative voting demographic. They will more or less be replaced, however, by approximately 16 million young people who’ll turn 18 during those years. Unlike their elders, though, they’ll disproportionately cast ballots for hardcore statists.

Given this ongoing immigration and indoctrination-enabled electoral-degradation process, is it now clearer why Republicans have lost the popular vote in six of the last seven presidential contests?

Note that during our entire pre-2000 history, Republican candidates won the presidency while losing the popular vote only twice. Now it has happened twice since 2000 alone, with the GOP capturing the popular vote in just one of its three victories (G.W. Bush, 2004). How long can we continue losing it while winning the Electoral College? We can’t pull inside straights forever.

Moreover, the cards won’t be there at all once Texas turns blue, and the warning signs are already evident. Rationalize all you want, but leftist nuts Andrew “Cracker State” Gillum, Irish Bob the Phony Mexican (O’Rourke) and Stacey “Suin’ Sore Loser” Abrams came close to winning in, respectively, Florida, Texas(!) and Georgia(!); Taliban bubblehead Kyrsten Sinema did win in Arizona. We’re further down the rabbit hole than you think, Alice.

Leftists are already talking about 2020, too, with a lineup resembling the bar scene in Star Wars (hat tip: Pat Buchanan). But the details don’t matter. Whatever the Democrat presidential ticket, it’ll be a ticket to Hell.

Not only is society drifting ever further from Truth (“leftwards”) for the aforementioned reasons, but consider the Democrats’ delusional perspective. Projecting, many of them have convinced themselves we’re Nazis, fascists, bigots and un-American, evil haters who have undermined the rule of law, created a constitutional crisis and who represent a clear and present danger to the republic — we’re “deplorables.” Believing this, wouldn’t you suppose these were desperate times that called for desperate measures?

When the Democrats seize the presidency and both legislative chambers — which they eventually will — they’ll have a justification for behaving as tyrannically as they fancy we have. They’ll see it as simply responding in kind to a precedent we set. You’ll have Antifa in power.

The more “conservative” Supreme Court won’t save us, either. With their power-lust and ends-justify-the-means mentality, the Left will discover that judicial supremacy isn’t in the Constitution (which it isn’t). Unlike connedservatives, though, they’ll actually act upon their epiphany and ignore inconvenient court rulings.

So these are our interesting times. If you’re now ready to split a vein or run for the Zoloft, hold on. There’s some good news here, too — if you want to call it that.

There no longer is an “American people”; there are peoples living in America. We’re balkanized not just racially, ethnically and religiously, but also ideologically, sexually and philosophically; we speak different languages, literally and figuratively. With open talk of open-borders socialism on one side and nationalism on the other, the Overton window is now so wide that each end occupies a different time zone. Frankly, many of us hate each other. If our union were a marriage, we’d have divorced long ago.

And I believe this will likely be the U.S.’s fate: dissolution. It may be precipitated by a calamity such as a severe economic collapse. If the federal government is then unable to meet its obligations (e.g., Social Security payments), the union-binding carrot will be gone. If the feds also seek to impose a tyrannical will, certain states may nullify their dictates, creating a further rift. One thing could then lead to another and….

Regardless, with the Left hurling fightin’ words (Nazi, etc.), fomenting unrest and attacking and bullying conservatives, the Cold Civil War is already afoot. Will it go hot? If so, when? For sure is that if the Left keeps pushing, it eventually will get pushback.

Of course, should this happen, we’d likely be vulnerable to enemies such as China. It all makes for a very unsure, but not uninteresting, future.

Yet if the republic does fall and dissolve, maybe, just perhaps, one of the resulting countries can be that shining city on a hill. But remember: It will be up to us to forge it, ever bearing in mind that we can’t MAGA unless we MAMA. This means instilling in ourselves virtue — including that of courage. For whatever terrors, traumas and tribulations lie ahead, we’ll need a lot of it for things to come.

If this doesn’t put the fear of God into you, nothing will.

We are in a mess politically, culturally and every other way. Our morality is shrinking, our Christian faith is going dark, our love of freedom is dimming all while communism is the rally cry with increasing numbers of socialists. Bigger government! More wealth sharing. Collect the guns! UNITE!

Yeah, we are in big trouble here.

  1. Great piece, tannngl, and you’re right about Texas. Ted Cruz should have won by a much bigger margin, but he barely squeaked by. That tells you just how purple we’ve become and it’s a creepy feeling.

    I’m not so sure we can make America moral again – it’s gone so far around the bend that it can’t go back now. Everything that was bad is now acceptable and out in the open, while morals are scoffed at. We are in big trouble indeed.

    • Did the Texas color change happen quickly? Or was it slow and insidious? I never noticed it! I think Cruz won last time by a huge amount. Well maybe not; he had that strange loss in primaries and then was ale to get a new election and then won the general but I don’t know by how much.

      Something in the Bible about ” beware to…
      Here it is: 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. Isaiah 5:20 And Jesus repeats it in Matthew 7:15.
      The culture has gone the way of Noah’s age when the great flood came. It’s bad but getting worse.

  2. This is an outstanding post, tannngl. No truer words were ever spoken.

    I feel like this country is a giant barge heading for the crest of Niagara Falls, with conservatives desperately trying to steer us to safety and the leftists, liberals, progressives, socialists and communists determined to steer us over the Falls just because they enjoy the sense of power of knowing that they can. With every inch that we are carried closer to the Falls, the likelihood of saving ourselves shrinks. It’s too depressing and needlessly tragic to contemplate.

    • It sure makes Trump’s accomplishments seem small to me although they have been phenomenal. Unless he can do something to change more than the immediate economy we are on a bad path to permanent change and our Constitutional Republic will be a Communist kleptocracy.

      Did you see the interview with Mayor DeBlasio? He has come out full communist. He favors government owning everything with no personal property. https://nypost.com/2017/09/05/a-plea-to-democrats-to-back-anyone-but-de-blasio/
      “Our legal system is structured to favor private property,” he said, insisting that “people would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be.”

      For good measure, he added: “If I had my druthers, the city government would determine every single plot of land, how development would proceed. And there would be very stringent requirements around income levels and rents. That’s a world I’d love to see.”

  3. As per the daily quote I recently read “We cannot expect Americans to jump from capitalism to communism. We can assist their leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have communism.” Nikita Khrushchev … isn’t this exactly what the Dems have been pushing since FDR?
    Scary that blatant socialists are now being elected. Inexplicable that so many (here in FL) voted for a socialist governor, even after many either fled or know someone who fled Cuba’s socialist/communistic government.

    • I suspect 2 things making these elections be so close: 1. Fraud and abuse in the elections (this is so obvious-if more than one polling place shows real questionable fraud, you know it’s happening at most Democratic polling places.) 2. Illegals voting. If they have drivers licenses, they can vote. It’s been proven in PA and CA. And non-citizens are voting in many states. “EXPOSED: Non-Citizens Voting in Texas? “We got TONS of them” Says Election Official on Undercover Video.” This was taken by Project Veritas and if it’s happening in one polling place, it’s happening everywhere you have Dem polling places. In states like CA and MD, non citizens are by law permitted to vote in local elections, maybe other states as well…But how do you make sure they only get ballots for locals? And why would you allow non-citizens to vote at all?

      Col. West this morning said another phenomenon was turning Texas purple. Leftists from leftist states like CA are moving into TX. Unhappy with their state they are moving into Tx and changing TX! Idiots!

      • A friend, who lives just North of Austin, agrees with Col. West – Idiotic to escape a bad situation then make choices that turn their nice, new home into the same bad situation…. Now that you’ve mentioned that, perhaps that is why so many seem to have voted for that socialist… I initially assumed that Cubans, having escaped socialism, would understand how oppressive the reality of it is, but if CA escapes are still voting left, then perhaps, for some incomprehensible reason, escapees from socialism feel that is somehow a good thing.
        As per the actual voting, you are spot-on when you note strange things happen in dem-strongholds. Gillium wanted illegals to vote, here in Florida, too. As did that woman in Georgia. I also hear that some voters were over 100 and others voted more than one time. IMHO, it sounds good to say ‘every vote should be counted’ BUT not if the individual is dead, if they aren’t a citizen. (IF I had voted, while living overseas, I would have been tossed in jail – non-citizens weren’t even allowed to campaign for candidates).
        Forget what the law is, but I heard there was some law passed years ago (most likely during Obama) about ID’s and that everyone needs to have a legitimate one by 2020 — something about getting this at the DMV and there being an x on the corner of one’s driver’s license… My husband and I checked our driver’s licenses and we have them. Apparently, the x confirms that we showed proof of ID like birth certificate, social security number or passport…. When we returned to the US, our states driver’s licenses had expired, so we showed our passports + licenses issued by Panama, which is where we’d been living, so apparently, without realizing it, we’d complied with that law. I bring this up because I’m hoping to see US-wide voter reform that mandates IDs and it seems like that law could easily become part of it.

    • Voting fraud is just one small part of, though it’s not small! It’s huge! My guess is we’ll always have voter fraud of some type but at least ID would help immensely.
      What were you guys doing in Panama? Sounds interesting.

      In 2010 I traveled to Israel for a 2 week tour. Alone. When I returned at customs, the customs agent said, “Welcome home!” I thought that was a very nice touch.

      • In 2005, we sold our house & took off on our catamaran for a nice, long sabbatical. in 07, we went on a bus tour of Panama and fell in love with the mountain area on the West side of the country, so stayed until ’11. In those 5 years, I learned quite a bit about their laws and their version of Latin culture, which is why I tend to use examples from there when attempting to make a comparison with US law.

  4. You asked (rhetorically possibly) about who saw WW-1 coming. I suggest this quote by Fürst Otto vonBismarck, made in 1888: “One day the great European War will come out of some damned foolish thing in the Balkans.”
    As for the rest – well – it’s well on the way. I think it’s gonna be an urban/rural Civil War, with cities pretty much starving to death as nothing moves and the military defends their bases and people leaving the country to fight it out. (3 books by William C Diets – America Rising series – describes one such war)
