Sanctimony is in infinite supply when judging others.

There's enough *collective* blame go around.

Do we really want to have *that* conversation?

If we did, I think most people of conscience would just feel ... sort of sad.

We are heading in a direction that doesn't end well.
I can show video after video of Democrats downplaying the summer riots. Between 30 and 60 people died.

Businesses destroyed.

The response is the Capitol is sacred.

Here's a Senate vote being delayed by protesters. SCOTUS being stormed.

But still it doesn't get through. ImageImage
There was no moral justification for the frame job of Kavanaugh.

A convicted felon fabricated evidence in a Senate hearing, using Julie Swetneck as a prop.

Where were cries for sacred institutions?

Precedent was set, "Anything goes."

People noticed. Image
"Oh but it was different when Michael Avenatti presented fraudulent testimony to the Senate. It was different when CNN reported that 'story.'"

Why?

By what moral standard do you claim that the Capitol is "sacred," except when you suborn perjury in a confirmation hearing?
The response to the Capitol riots are twofold:

1. The Capitol is sacred.

2. Violence is wrong.

Was the Capitol sacred when Michael Avenatti suborned perjury, creating a false narrative every media outlet carried?

Is the Supreme Court building sacred? Rioters stormed it, too.
As to the second point, namely that "Violence is wrong."

NO KIDDING.

It was wrong when it happened during Trump's Inauguration week.

That's when violence really started picking up. You can find all evidence of arson and attacks on random bystanders.
When a rational inquiry into the response to the vile Capitol riots shows that similar behavior was undertaken by the left, and was winked at by the establishment, then you've lost what matters most in a civil society:

- Moral authority.
"It's OK when we do it," is nihilistic will to power, not Rule of Law.

You cannot have a civil society where the establishment, widely defined as media and political elite, create one set of rules for their segment of the population.

While setting a higher standard for others.
"The Scalise shooting was different," they say, without really explaining why.

Several members of congress were almost summarily executed in a public act of terrorism.

The story went away in a few hours.

In 2017, there were no calls to determine who radicalized the shooter.
Political violence began in earnest in 2015, at the San Jose Trump rally. A Chicago rally was shut down by rioters.

There was no media interest in examining who radicalized these people, who organized did, whose rhetoric incited this.
Did all of the "Political Science" majors in media and politics sleep through social contract theory?

Society is a collective agreement among people - held together by norms.

A nation of laws, and a nation of norms.

Every norm was destroyed, and you can't just blame Trump.
My view on Trump, confirmed by his election, is that norms no longer existed.

Behavior by the establishment proved this:

- FISA perjury.

- Scalise shooting.

- Inauguration violence (charges dropped).

- Kavanaugh being falsely accused by Michael Avenatti.

- Summer riots.
So no. While I have outgrown Trump and his childish antics (shadow male energy)

- I won't be lectured by any establishment figures.

Not after FISA perjury. Not after ANTIFA violence was normalized. Not after Scalise shooting. Not after Kavanaugh hearings and SCOTUS storming.
Any return to normalcy would require bipartisan decency and metaphorical falling on swords.

- Adam Schiff lied about the FISA warrants. Remember that FISA memo he wrote, which the IG report completely repudiated?

Schiff would have to resign as part of a Trump impeachment deal.
When you tell me ORANGE MAN BAD, yes, no kidding.

Have you even read me since 2017?

Adam Schiff - chair of the Intelligence Committee - LIED for years about the FISA warrants.

Will you call for Schiff to resign?

Why not?

What moral case is there for Schiff to remain?
The answer from the establishment is, No. Adam Schiff won't resign even though his FISA memo was a complete lie. As PROVEN by IG Report.

No, none of the Senators who pushed Julie Swetnick will resign.

This is one set of rules, peasant, take the Impeachment or you hate America!
My answer is - and I dislike Trump - is NO.

Pardon my language.

FUCK YOU.

NO.

Not without full accountability for Schiff and the FISA hoax. Not for full accountability on Julie Swetnick and Michael Avenatti.

Again, *I don't like Trump.*

Imagine how his supporters feel.
It's not Whataboutism to judge *similar behavior* the establishment engaged in.

The Socratic Method which you learn in Day 1 of 1L.

This is how the Rule of Law works.

"In this set of facts, you conclude it was a riot. In this other set of facts, you claim it's not. Why?"
There is no leadership worth a damn, no adults.

Democrats engaged in FISA hoax (even Lawfare admits the Nunes Memo was the more accurate telling).

No Democrat will resign for Swetnick hoax.

Republicans won't defend peaceful protests.

Trump sucks.

We are on our own.
Democrats could rally to impeach Trump but not raise $2,000 for the American people.

If you're a liberal, think about that for a while after the blood lust subsides.

Sit with that energy.

Real action for people isn't take, but you are getting a show.

Is that good enough?
I hope you don't think that what's happening is "good enough."

People say I have a huge ego. Untrue. I do have feelings of self-worth.

We should demand more. You should demand more.

But....

Right now, as a country, we are getting exactly what we fucking deserve.

This is a characteristically thoughtful column and I have some thoughts. Read it first and I'll post my own below it.

nytimes.com/2021/01/10/bus…
I've always thought in the abstract, and it's true in my own life, that men without children (especially daughters) are the biggest threat to stability.

There's nothing mooring you to society. You're on a never ending fake hero's journey, egged on by other childless young men.
I've modulated my own behavior, not due to the ridiculous belief that I want to be liked by those who hate me, but because eventually my daughters will be able to get an outside view of me.

Traditions vary, but you'll be faced with about 2 ounches of a brown fluid.

A typical batch tastes like you'd imagine motor oil would.

If you're lucky, it will taste like espresso that's been left out overnight.

You take a drink, wait.

The longest 30 minutes of your life....
If it's your first time, you've read blogs and listened to some podcasts. But you're about to learn that you're not prepared.

If you'd gone under before, you may be more on edge than the newcomers.

You know *something* is about to hit, and don't know what.

You sit and wait...
"The fear of the thing is always greater than the thing itself," is true 99% of the time.

You dread asking for something, because you fear rejection. But the rejection is never that bad.

As you're sitting, waiting, wondering, you brace for the thing you fear.

Ayahuasca, like so many other boogiemen of society, when properly studied is shown to be more effective than "modern medicine."

nature.com/articles/s4139…
Still cracks me up when "scientists" claim that ayahuasca is "hallucinogenic."

They have no idea what happens or where we go - which is Home.

This world we experience is the hallucination.
When you have kids, what do they all say when they are little?

- "Pick me up I want to fly."

Flying is natural, innate, it's a good feeling.

Walking is not natural to us, our souls are caught in these bodies.

How we or why we ended up here, who knows.

Already for next 36 hours this is a Christmas fan account. Don’t send me political bs. But I do want to see trees and spreads!
Almost time for the big reveal...

Some good documentaries I watched this year:

The Power of The Heart. Title only sounds corny to some because we are taught to hate not love. This mofo will have you holding back tears.

Immaculée Ilibagiza's story will floor you.

Bonus - Paulo Coelho cameo.
Fantastic Fungi. Normie intro to plant medicine, it’s PC and you can share with family and friends.

Most people have 0 idea about the healing power of plant medicine yet have strongly held opinions.

🍄 🍄🍄 heal
20 Feet from Stardom. Musically it’s engaging, what I enjoyed most is learning about a completely unknown culture, including the influence of gospel / choir on mainstream songs from 1970’s onward.

Here is why @realDonaldTrump should not hinder the development of crytpo / Bitcoin in the United States with unnecessary regulations (a thread):

First and most important, we just saw the greatest campaign of censorship, deplatforming, and unbanking in our lifetimes.
Today it's being kicked off of social media, but tomorrow it may be losing bank accounts.

Every @realDonaldTrump voter and donor is at risk of being banned. This is a real risk. Look at the censorship that just happened.

Regulating Bitcoin enables the censors.
The Trump Bitcoin Ban (how it's being labelled / branded) would be America Last.

All of the latest tech would go overseas, and China would become the leader in digital currency.
