A Plague Of Traitors

Marcus Tullius CiceroThere has always been on singular, sad truth – that all peoples have always been plagued by the disease of treason. Just as wherever Man has gone, rats and other vermin have followed him, traitors have plagued Man’s peoples since the dawn of Civilization.

Nor has this changed, especially in America, where we are inundated by them at all levels of society.

As Cicero stated to the Romans, nations can survive much, but not easily the plague of traitors.

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through…all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

— Marcus Tullius Cicero

Americans need only to look at the Left, these Democrats and those sorts considered likely to vote Dem to find the infection of traitors. Americans need only look to the Liberal judges overstepping their bounds in open rebellion against President Trump and America to see the traitorous plague carriers in action. One need only see the #NeverTrump sort’s supposedly “principled objections” which amount to nothing more than lending aid and comfort to the Leftwing traitors to see the suppurating necrotic rot inside our nation’s borders.

No, a nation is always hard pressed to survive the plague of treason. Hence, Americans to remember and accept that plagues are contained through fire. One must literally burn out the infection, the vermin spreading it, and the infected areas.

The Grinches

The Grinches
The Grinches Who Steal It All

‘Tis Christmas, and we’d all like to celebrate and spend time with our families and loved ones. But we can’t forget that there are grinches out there who have neither families nor loved ones and who harbor nothing but envy and hatred for the American people, who do. We must remember that these Grinches would like to steal all that we have and aspire to, including Christmas.

Just as George Washington and the patriots of the Continental Army set aside their celebrations 242 years ago this night, modern patriots must be ready, willing, able, and equipped to do whatever is necessary to defend our nation and our people from these domestic enemies, who are far worse than any Hessians ever were.

Requiem Ultra Repris

Requiem Ultra Repris
(Click to Enlarge)

It’s past the centennial of the Armistice that ended WW1, but I feel that the dead of that long ago war deserve a reprise of their requiem. And, thanks to the calligraphic skills and efforts of Satwinder Sehmi, this is easy to do. On top of that, his rendering of Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae’s iconic poem as a poppy is brilliant.

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place, and in the sky,
The larks, still bravely singing, fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead; short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe!
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high!
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Indeed, by way of a history lesson, In Flanders Fields is cited as the reason that the poppy is the symbol of remembrance for those who died in service and in war.

Remembrance

Remembrance

It eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month exactly a century ago that the armistice that ended World War I was signed at Compiègne, France.  Yes, it was exactly 100 years ago that the surviving men of that generation from 32 countries could breathe a sigh of relief and think of going home.

Yet, many millions never went home, save as corpses to be buried or as mere tokens used to keep count.  And, as the years and decades past time in perfect order and “The War To End All Wars” was supplanted by later, more romantic conflicts, even the count became something of import only to some few scholars, those men long gone having passed from remembrance, with the last of their surviving fellows having died on May 5, 2011 at the age of 110.

‘Tis to our shame I think that we spare no time to either review or remember those brave souls nor the war they died in.

#BelieveAllWomen 1889

#BelieveAllWomen 1889

Yeah, if we’re going to #BelieveAllWomen, we need to rethink how we consider and teach certain unpleasant parts of American people.  After all, those lynchings and the two massacres – Rosewood, FL and Tulsa, OK – that resulted from a Black male raping or trying to rape a White woman have to be taught in that context instead of the sole context of racism.

And yes, those Black males did rape or try to rape those White women. To believe anything else is to spit in the face of every female rape survivor in the world…as any of the vocal sorts of #MeToo will be sure to tell you at great length and with even greater vitriol. Remember, if accusation isn’t enough, you’re just a rape enabler.

So, if we’re going to believe them now and act upon those beliefs, we have to believe them then, and approach the lynching of Black rapists as merely an inappropriately extra-judicial response to these heinous crimes.

Yeah, think about that.
