Codevilla on the Ruling Class: They are after YOU!

“It had been decided. You peons shut up and obey.”

(Angelo Codevilla writing at American Greatness)

“They” are bipartisan political elites who run the country, says Codevilla in his classic opening salvo in 2010.

They think that by destroying Trump, they will destroy you, the country class, the peons, says professor, author and thinker Angelo Codevilla.

In an age where we don’t want to read more than a few sentences at Twitter (or anywhere), it is important to take a few minutes to read and digest the work of someone who has had your back for more than a decade.

I’ve snipped just a bit of the latest from Codevilla here at American Greatness. (hat tip: Richard)

He says we, the great United States has become an oligarchy, no longer a Constitutional Republic but a country governed by a small group of the ‘elite.’

(Emphasis below is mine)

From Ruling Class to Oligarchy

Roughly half the country is living under an alien regime that means to harm us socially, politically, and economically.

 

Angelo M. Codevilla https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angelo_Codevilla

“By its campaign and conduct of the 2020 election, the ruling class ceased pretending to be part of a constitutional republic. By treating fellow Americans as inferiors through word and deed, its members renounced their common citizenship with us. Eschewing persuasion, they set about compelling obedience to an openly manipulated election.

Thus did they burn their bridges to the rest of America as surely as did Hernán Cortéz when he burned the ships that had carried his troops to conquer the Aztec empire. Henceforth, they must rule or ruin as the oligarchy they have become.”

Codevilla continues….

This is how it happened. It had been clear to that class that Trump was dangerous only because he represented his “deplorable” supporters. The ruling class sought to resist them by dispiriting them and discrediting them in their own and others’ eyes. Demonizing Trump was the means by which they sought to do this.

Arguably the American country class’ principal mistake between 2016 and 2020 was to suppose that the Left was actually after Trump, rather than set about crushing them and killing the American regime.

[….]

And then Election Night. As predicted, election officials in places controlled by the Left stopped counting until it was clear how many ballots it would take for Trump to be defeated. The requisite number came, filled out by no one knows who. And then . . . who wouldn’t have predicted it? The call came from all of society’s commanding heights: Trump’s defeat had been declared.By whom? By the folks on these varied heights—certainly not by the authorities designated by the Constitution to decide who wins and loses.

[….]

But the more instances of fraud the Trump campaign sought to investigate, the louder and from more sources sounded the judgment that there was nothing to investigate. It had been decided. You peons shut up and obey.

That is how oligarchies work.

What may be done about this is another story. But the story’s premise is that it must begin with the realization that the conservative more-or-less half of American life is living under an alien regime that means to continue harming us socially and morally just as much as economically. Plainly, we find ourselves in a (mostly not yet violent) state of war. The beginning of such safety as we may work out for ourselves is to regard our rulers as they regard us.

Yes, it is that serious. The ruling class wants people like you and me destroyed. People like those who marched in Washington a week ago.

 

And, I read Codevilla’s closing paragraph above to mean we have to understand the stakes and fight like our lives and the country we love depends on it.

I know its hard for decent people to consider that we must “regard our rulers as they regard us” which is a nice way of saying they HATE US and therefore….!

Long live America First!

Update!  No sooner had I published this post, when this tweet came to my attention.  Liz Cheney is a ruling class superstar!

From Biden’s Own Mouth!

I’ve mentioned this before, but will keep it pinned at the top of Frauds & Crooks for as long as Joe Biden is on the national stage (or Youtube censors it!).

Nothing could be more fitting here on a blog about fraud!

And, that brings us to this.  From a speech in DETROIT!

Resist the Great Reset!

You have likely been hearing a lot about the international globalist/commie/UN plan called the “Great Reset”. Our friend Leo Hohmann told you about how the Chinese virus ‘crisis’ is being used to control us and to put the “Great Reset” in motion here.

I was surprised to see Tucker report on it last night.  (Tucker Carlson is now the only show I watch at Fox News and I am very much enjoying Newsmax’s coverage of election fraud.)

If you missed it, you can watch Tucker’s whole opening monologue below.  BTW, Carlson put rumors to rest that he was leaving Fox.  He said in the same show that he was staying and that somehow Fox was going to expand his type of reporting.  LOL! Finally Fox has competition and daytime viewers are leaving in droves.

Imagine what Trump TV could do!

I have a dream and that is if the President is replaced via a stolen election with the help of gutless Republicans that he will put together a media empire and hire real investigative reporters to expose the deep state (including Republican deep staters), election fraud, the Biden family enrichment scheme and more.

Frankly, as a ‘fire in the belly’ leader of an America First! movement, he would be more powerful outside of government than in it.

Tucker gets around 5 million viewers, give or take a million. Other cable ‘luminaires’ are lucky to reach into the upper 1 million mark.

President Donald Trump would be starting with 73 million viewers!

Update!  Looks like the little creeps at Youtube took it down.  You should be able to see his opening monologue here:

Tucker Carlson: The elites want COVID-19 lockdowns to usher in a ‘Great Reset’ and that should terrify you

 

How (and Why?) was Veep Joe Biden Mucking Around in Central America?

Jim Simpson writing at American Thinker has pieced together a convincing account of Joe Biden’s nefarious involvement in the affairs of the Guatemalan government and his role in advancing the Communists’ agenda there.

(Remember when we assumed Obama picked Joe so Joe could act as a figurehead to attend boring funerals and such!)

The story is long and convoluted, but puts out a whole NEW set of allegations against good ol’ Joe that includes another possible pay-to-play scheme. 

For readers here you don’t need convincing that Joe Biden will damage US security if elected, but if he is elected this week (or in weeks to come!) consider this news as another avenue for patriots to pursue as the resistance to his presidency grows.

For naïve people who think America will calm down with Biden/Harris in the White House nothing can be further from the truth.

Joe Biden’s Hand in Corruption, Subversion and Crime in Guatemala

In 2014 and 2015, then-Vice President Joe Biden traveled to Guatemala three times to pressure the government to maintain a United Nations body known as the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG).

CICIG was established in Guatemala in 2006 under the pretext of prosecuting “crimes committed by members of illegal security forces and clandestine security structures,” during Guatemala’s long civil war. Instead, CICIG — an international body unaccountable to Guatemalan law, worked with Guatemala’s Justice Ministry to arrest and jail the left’s opponents. Many remain illegally detained to this day without trial. Two prominent doctors and a Guatemalan congressman died in jail. All suffered ill health, did not receive proper treatment and were detained much longer than legally allowed. None got a trial. All were absolved following their deaths.

Biden met with then-Guatemalan President Otto Pérez Molina, who did not want to renew CICIG’s charter. The Obama administration had promised a $1 billion aid package to Northern Triangle countries (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador), but Biden made the aid and upcoming trade agreements contingent upon renewing CICIG’s contract. First cajoling then threatening, Biden finally announced, “The CICIG is staying, period.” Biden used this same tactic in Ukraine, where he bragged about threatening to withhold loan guarantees until the Ukrainian government fired the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden. Biden also sought Pérez’s help in extending CICIG’s rule to El Salvador and Honduras.

Pérez reluctantly agreed to renew CICIG’s charter. He was then pressured to resign under accusations of corruption and stripped by the Guatemalan Congress of legal immunity. The day after he resigned he was arrested and thrown in jail. He has remained there ever since, without trial. In a Daily Caller interview from jail, Pérez called these efforts, “a coup without bullets.”

Pérez said that, “CICIG amounts to a new form of U.S. interference in Guatemala’s affairs and that his country has surrendered its sovereignty over its justice system by allowing the unit to operate.”

CICIG’s litany of abuses includes arbitrary arrest, detention and interrogation without charges or trial, fabricated evidence, illegal break-ins and denial of due process, pretrial detention for years longer than allowed by Guatemalan law and many other abuses. Some of the charges it has brought are valid, given endemic corruption in Guatemala. But CICIG’s goal was not to stem corruption, rather to use it as a pretext to dispatch the left’s enemies and install vastly more corrupt individuals who will advance the Communist cause in Guatemala.

Read it all and save it for more ammunition for the resistance (our resistance).

If you want to have a look at Biden’s plan for the Northern Triangle Countries including Guatemala if he wins the White House, see it here.  He brags that he was Obama’s point person when the ‘kids’ were crashing our borders six years ago.  You know when the cages were built!  Hmmm!

As the point-person for the Obama-Biden Administration to address the surge of unaccompanied minors from the Northern Triangle in 2014…..

Dark Winter? What Could Biden have Meant?

Do not miss Leo Hohmann’s latest post:

Bracing for a ‘DARK WINTER’

Here are the opening paragraphs, but you must read it all.

After his stumbling performance in Thursday night’s debate, and the way in which his campaign seems to be hiding him from public view, it’s hard to imagine how Joe Biden wins the presidency on Nov. 3.

What does the demented old man mean by “dark winter?”

If Biden was seriously trying to win, he would be out on the campaign trail like President Trump, not in his basement.

The way Biden is acting, it’s almost as if he’s been told not to worry, the outcome is not going to be decided by vote tallies.

With that in mind, let’s think outside the box and examine some possibilities that may sound insane, until we detach ourselves from our normalcy bias.***

From this vantage point, all roads lead to the same dark place — a second coronavirus lockdown, indeed a harder lockdown than the first one.

And it could be accompanied this time by a coup d’ etat to remove Trump from office. Look for the establishment [deep state supported by deep media] to conjure up some false pretense to justify his removal despite the fact that he will win re-election on Nov. 3, fair and square.

All the signals are pointing to this. And the latest came from Biden himself.

During the debate, Biden held up his black mask, looked straight into the camera and said “We’re about to go into a dark winter.”

***As I explained in a post a couple of months ago  ‘normalcy bias’ has resulted in the deaths of millions throughout history. There is no downside to considering all of the possibilities for the coming weeks, months, and God forbid years, just don’t stress.  We are in God’s hands.

Now keep reading Hohmann’s dire warning!
