LR Podcast, S3E15: Poking the bear

There is a time and place for those angered by the raid on Trump's home, that time is November, and the place is the ballot box.  The Democrats will do anything to marginalize and demonize Trump and his supporters.  We must not be baited into acting as they would, as demonstrated during the summer of 2020. 

LR Podcast, S3E14: JP’s Dystopic Journal

Postmodernism is a philosophy that refutes the notion of objective reality. It refutes the Enlightenment notion that Man advances his situation mainly though reason. Enlightenment philosophies are the basis of modern Western democracies in general, and of the United States in particular. Enlightenment thinking stands in the way of establishing a collectivist Utopia, and so must be supplanted in the body-politic by the post-modern viewpoint. Postmodernism can be said then, to be the philosophic means to that collectivist end.

Our dystopia and how we got in it.

The ends the Left have in mind is some sort of collectivist Utopia. Before they can build their brave new world, they must tear down the old one. Postmodernism is a philosophy that refutes the notion of objective reality. It refutes the Enlightenment notion that Man advances his situation mainly though reason.

LR Podcast, S3E13: A 3rd Party?

A New third party?  Reporting by Sharyl Attkisson and Tim Reid for Reuters talks about a new third party called the "Forward" party to compete with the Republicans and Democrats that is due to launch this fall. Is this the real deal, or just a party to run spoiler candidates against one party or the other?  Why hasn't America had a successful third party? 

LR Podcast, S3E12: Your suffering means little to them

The pain felt by the average American-- the high cost of household items, energy, gas, etc., is a pain not shared by the collectivist elites whose policies caused these problems. Our need to be free, to control our own destinies is in conflict with the elites' need for evermore power.

Are we being made to suffer intentionally?

For Americans, driving means freedom. The ability to just pick up, and leave town almost at a whim, either for business or pleasure promotes independent thought and action. This is antithetical to the leftist way. For the socialists and other collectivists, travel outside of one's hometown is a privilege, not a right.

LR Podcast, S2E11: You are not real to them

So, why are so many made to suffer for so little benefit to them? There are many reasons for sure-- foolish belief in Utopian schemes, lust for power, and greed on the part of the global elites.  These people who occupy the top rungs of industry, academia, and politics are insulated from the effects of their questionable economic and environmental theories. They are not affected by inflation.  They themselves will feel neither cold, heat, nor hunger in any amount that might make them uncomfortable. They are, in short, not us. 

You are not real to the globalists.

People are going hungry in Sri Lanka. Farmers in the Netherlands will be driven out of business. Europeans will freeze and Americans will sweat. Because their governments have decided to chase good ESG scores, instead of following best farming practices, people will go hungry and perhaps even starve this winter.
