An Old Argument Reprised

An Old Argument Reprised By The Dems

It seems that various Democrats are dead set against the upcoming 2020 Census including a question about citizenship / immigration status – a question that had been included in the decennial survey during much of America’s history. They even got one of their pet “judges” to block the Commerce Department from re-adding the citizenship question to the 2020 census questionnaire.

Thankfully, the SCOTUS has decided to hear the case in an expedited manner so that this perfidy can be mitigated.

But hey! This is something that President Trump either authorized or, at least, was done by somebody in his Administration. Hence, Democrats engaging in lawfare against it and any exercise of our President’s lawful authority or that of his Administration is the new normal. What is shocking and what says a lot about truth of what Democrats still are in their hearts and minds is the argument they’ve brought forth.

Democrats from at least 14 “Blue States” led by those ruling California are incredibly scared that such a question on this census could cause them to lose seats in the House of Representatives, votes in the Electoral College, and federal tax money disbursements, due to Illegal Aliens unlawfully refusing responding to the Census questionnaire if such a question is included upon it.

An Old, Old, Old Dem Argument Shamelessly Reprised

Yeah, that’s a new coat of lipstick on an old, old, old Democrat argument – an argument they’ve used with different wording but the same rationale as early as 1783 when they demanded that those who could not vote could still be used by Democrats to garner them the benefits of increased representation in the House and the Electoral College. Then, they’ve shown before that they really haven’t changed that much in the intervening time. They’ve just switched out which group of slaves to try to use for their rather foul and self-serving purposes.

Perhaps the SCOTUS will render a compromise ruling, having the citizenship question included on only Three-Fifths of the questionnaires.

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.
