The expression of their faces bears witness against them,

And they display their sin like Sodom;

They do not even conceal it.

Woe to them!

For they have brought evil on themselves.

Say to the righteous that it will go well with them,

For they will eat the fruit of their actions.

Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him,

For what he deserves will be done to him.

— Isaiah 3:9-11 NASB1995

I remind myself frequently, “I’m glad the Lord didn’t pull the big red handle one hour before I came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ”.

2 Peter 3: 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

2 Peter 3: 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

I was reminded of this:

“Lord, I have heard the report about You and I fear.

O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years,

In the midst of the years make it known;

In wrath remember mercy.”

— Habakkuk 3:2 NASB1995

“The Lord would revive his work among the people in the midst of the years of adversity. This may be applied to every season when the church, or believers, suffer under afflictions and trials. Mercy is what we must flee to for refuge, and rely upon as our only plea. We must not say, Remember our merit, but, Lord, remember thy own mercy.” —Matthew Henry

A certain minority group cannot bring themselves to vote differently. The idea that the republican party is for and about rich white persons has been firmly ingrained. There are other reasons they vote that way too.

Yes for many of them it goes way back sociologically for why they do it. I remember this being discussed in a PBS series on the history of different ethnic groups in America. Many people cannot break from the past and see that todays oppressed are not the deviants, but the rest of us!

I’m amazed to learn many Jewish people, who are generally great business-minded people, vote Democrat; can’t imagine why!

Expand full comment

According to a special on PBS, they vote that way because this is the party which traditionally stood up for the underdog and oppressed, of which they related to. Also that is why they tend to tolerate or embrace liberal ideas and causes. However, it is odd, as the idea of liberal causes has taken a culturally, anti family and God sick turn, and liberal Jews tend to still still be family oriented.

Angela, your first statement is essentially wrong and clueless on a few counts. If I were a member of “a certain minority group” and, like a great many in “certain minority groups”, do vote differently than your assumptions of me, I might take issue with these.

I am part of an ethnic group and I am a New Yorker through and through, with a handle on the mosaic of my 'homeland' , having grown up and schooled and worked with every group of the great mosaic! Also as the geandaughter of immigrants I don’t get touchy when I hear generalizations about the sociological factors behind my etnic group or any other group. I find sociology intellectually fascinating. PBS did an entire series on each group and the historic whys of how they tend to vote became so much clearer.

Don't confuse criminality with anarchy. Anarchy simply means "absence of government" not "rioting in the streets". As such, it's actually very close to the philosophy behind the 10th Amendment.

May 12, 2023·edited May 12, 2023

However, anarchy has become synonymous with criminality and rioting in the streets because government is the only entity to enforce law and order (in a perfect world). It’s way past time for states to step up and do what our UNconstitutional government refuses to do. The situation at our southern border is a prime example of that. I voted for Abbott, but he is weak on this issue. Texas is powerful enough to have stopped this mess or at least curtailed it to a large degree, if the will to do so had existed.

The 10th Amendment is well and good, IF any state would invoke it. Do you see that happening?

The real problem in NYC is APATHY. Not enough people are voting AT ALL. The uniparty is a given, opposition is considered futile. I don’t have the specific numbers (look it up), but in a city of 8M people, DeBlasio, who literally destroyed the city during his tenure, was elected *and* re-elected with something like @ 700,000 votes. It’s disgusting. I grew up in Queens but live in the northern suburbs now.

What most people fail to realize is that the change that impacts individuals the most is fought for and executed at the LOCAL level, not in DC.

A story: Vickie Paladino (R) is a fearless NYC council woman representing my old hometown in comparatively upscale northern Queens, fighting every woke policy you can think of - despite being in the council minority. She also refused to share her vax status during mandates. I know her personally (she’s my best friend’s older sister) and contributed to her campaign. She’s been called a female Trump. Seriously, no filter. 😂 She says a number of the Dems on the council agree with her stances and applaud her outspokenness privately, but they still tow the party line on council votes. The hypocrisy is despicable.

Here’s an example of the apathy I claim and why NYC will continue to decline. One of my friends still lives in the district and I have introduced her to Vickie. When Vickie won her hard-fought election, my friend was happy about it, but genuinely asked me how I thought it would benefit her personally. I asked, “did you vote for her?” She sheepishly said she didn’t vote at all. When I told her that local elections were important and where change actually happens, she asked if I voted (which of course I did). I obviously hit a nerve because she took it as a criticism and literally jumped down my throat.

Long rambling story (sorry), but what’s the bottom line? The moral of the story?

You may get what you vote for, but you also get what you DON’T vote for. Especially locally.

Tucker broadcast from Maine ... Rush broadcast from Florida ... Breitbart News streams from wherever the on-air anchor is at the moment.

When you have the kind of money he does, it can be Paradise. He is a New Yorker in his soul ( not to mention his worst of the worse voice and accent).

I was born and raised in Brooklyn. I lived in a northern suburb of the city for 30 years until 10 years ago.

New York, especially from back in the day never leaves your soul. You meet another New Yorker from your era and you understand and connect to each other despite different ethnic or religious background, despite different educational level. Nothing can describe it, so I don't expect others to understand.

Not trying to be a contrarian here, but Cernovich makes a good point, these people voted for this, why should good men risk everything to defend them?

Bragg was elected by an overwhelming majority, Manhattan is 90% democrat. So either these people want this, or they are too stupid/uniformed to know that locking up criminals to protect people is good for society. They want this.

Yet good men are supposed to step up and protect these people? Good men are supposed to risk everything to be jailed by a left-wing nutcase prosecutor and jury? Those good men will be separated from their family, unable to provide for their kids, unable to see them grow up, and have their life ruined, for protecting people who want and voted for the mayhem.

Young urban women overwhelming vote democrat and propel these leftist thugs into office, yet good patriotic men are supposed to step in and protect them when the inevitable happens? No way, chivalry is a two-way street. You don't get to have your cake and eat it too.

Cernovich is exactly right IMO. Good men should save their heroics for people who actually appreciate honor, valor, and courage, and don't put communists that free criminals in office.

Expand full comment

I would agree except…when good men and women are minding their own business and thugs like that one start harming people….good men and women instinctively protect. It’s in their nature. How do we live with ourselves if we turn away and let them be hurt when it was in our power to help them? That’s the difference between cowards and good men and women. We can’t turn a blind eye to thugs and criminals. 🤷‍♀️ even if we want to.

Expand full comment

I don't like it either, but people have to learn from their actions. There's a real cost to be paid for mindlessly electing a communist just because he has a D by his name. Bragg made no secret about his intentions.

Personally, I avoid these situations by keeping myself and my family out of bad areas and situations. You could not pay me to ride a New York subway. It may sound cowardly but it keeps us from being victimized or being put in the position of having to confront one of these psychos. These people not only put themselves in the situation but vote for more if it. Particularly women, it's like they have a death wish.

Expand full comment

I get it. And I do agree with some of what you say.

I also avoid places that are unsafe as well. I would not knowingly go to places that are bad areas or bad situations. That is not cowardly. That is being wise!

And you are also right that a lot of people voted for this therefore should live with the consequences. Those consequences would be brave mend and women not even being there to help in the first place. However, if good men and women happen to be there, I’m glad they would do the right thing and step up.

It's a slippery slope when good people stop doing the right thing, for whatever reason. Like I tell my kids, you're responsible for what you do. Not for what anyone else does. I hope men never stop being gallant simply because feminists don't want it. And I hope good men and women don't stop standing up to bullies simply because the populace doesn't deserve it. Because then no one is doing the right thing.

Expand full comment

I would argue the "right thing" is to take your family out of a lawless place and to protect them by using common sense. I have no obligation to threaten my own family's well-being by defending a woman who voted for lawlessness all because the guy with a "D" by his name supports and promotes abortion (and that's what it comes down to for many, if not most, young women).

Chivalry was a system designed to protect women as the weaker sex. The system worked in that certain behavior was expected of both sides. Women are not entitled to unconditional bravery from men just because of their chromosomes. If women want to do stupid things like vote for communists and ride unprotected in a lawless subway then they really should not expect men to step up and defend them.

Expand full comment

We do what we do because of who we are, not because of who others are. I didn't refuse to wear a mask just to wake up people who wanted to stay asleep. I refused because of who I am before God. I didnt say anything about putting your family in danger because of chivalry (thats a stretch), but I can tell you my family experienced persecution. If men would understand their role before God, and fulfill it, this world would be a different place. This man on the subway did what his conscience knew was right, and in this evil culture, he will suffer for it. But the evil culture is not his problem. God and his conscience tell him who he is, not them. And it's God they'll both answer to.

The argument is correct because people deserve the consequences of their actions. But the larger take-away is that New York is a failed state and really no different from Monrovia or any other failed state cesspool.

There are only two choices in life. Either stand up for truth and an authentic administration of justice based upon God's Law ... or roll over. Things have gotten extreme. The result being that choices are sometimes hard and difficult.

How does making right choices work in daily life? Well, I will defend my wife, if need be, with my life. My wife knows this. And the result is that the quality of life in the house is upgraded from what it could be, a thing of no consequence. That is, if a person knows that he or she can depend on someone to perform, then life is made good and the home secure.

The necessity to choose between Good and Evil regardless of the personal consequence in today's Woke climes should be a self-evident truth.

Expand full comment

There's a third choice in don't put yourself in a situation where you are compelled to defend the stupid or reckless.

Remember that scene in Die Hard 3 where the bad guy tells John McClain to go into a black neighborhood wearing a giant "I hate (N-word)" placard as part for the ransom? Extreme example, but if someone is doing that and you drive by and see him getting the tar beaten out of him, would you help? Or would you think that guy was an idiot and frankly got what he had coming?

Things are not always black and white. The problem here is that people have made foolish choices to elect morons that free criminals, choose to live in an unsafe neighborhood, and then ride the subway which is notorious for being a rolling mental institution. They don't have to do any of these things but choose to. Then when as predictably as the sun rising things go wrong, people are supposed to step up and defend them knowing they will go to jail for it? No.

Of course I would defend my family to the death if it came down to it. However, it never has come down to that because I make smart choices to keep them and myself out of situations where it's required. If that makes me a coward then I'm proudly a coward.

The alleged third choice is not really a third choice. It is another choice separate from the first binary consideration of having choose between Good and Evil.

True Ted, I think people should behave prudently by evaluating the consequences before they act. Like you state that includes avoiding potentially dangerous situations. But it goes beyond that.

I'm saying (actually Cernovich said it but I agree with him) they should not risk their lives, livelihood, and freedom by defending people who vote for and sanction anarchy. These people that some are demanding others defend, will be all too happy to vote 12-0 to convict them when Bragg or some other Soros prosecutor charges them with assault or manslaughter.

NYC has made it's choice to elect a communist who ran on the platform of letting criminals run free. That's what he said he'd do and they voted for him overwhelmingly. They are brainwashed dolts who think civilization is the normal order of humanity as opposed to a carefully constructed system of rules, enforcement, and common trust. They threw that out the window in a fit of self-righteousness as it made them feel good about themselves (Black Lives Matter!) and now they are paying the price. Now normal decent people are supposed to step up and defend them? Why?

And to those saying it's the Christian thing to do, I get it. But where does the Bible say we are compelled to defend people that intentionally bring harm upon themselves (and risk our own family's well being in the process)? Perhaps it's in there but I have not seen it. I quote Bible verses on here all the time and would *welcome* some scripture that clarifies this subject.

Anyways, I avoid it entirely by *never* putting my family in a location where mental patients roam free. We don't go shopping or to restaurants in bad neighborhoods ever, why would people do that? And if we are at some event and I get a sense that things are starting to get uncomfortable we leave. Period. My family always comes first.

As long as you are following Christ, no one (including myself) has any valid reason to criticize you. You are the leader of your family, ordained by God Himself.

For me, I ignore all that fake Christian crap about following government orders, etc. None of that means anything when the government itself is fully devoted to Satan. I take my orders from God, so I don’t give any thought to what anyone else says or believes. Psalm 118:8 is considered to be the ‘center’ of God’s Word. I put my full trust in God and every man can go pound sand. “I seek peace, but I am ready and willing to do horrible things to evil people in order to protect my family, or anyone I choose.” ~ me

My comment wasn't intended to be pejorative towards you or anyone else here, and i apologize if it seemed that way or in any way self-righteous. IMHO, the time is coming when we will no longer have many choices remaining, and we might consider what we are prepared to do to "keep what's mine." Further, painting everyone in a city, town or even a neighborhood with the same brush is unreasonable. Do we question a person about their political positions before we help them, or do we help because we believe we should? For those who are religious - and I am not - one might ask what Jesus would do.

Very true in that NYC is huge, but aside from Staten Island most of NYC is very liberal and votes overwhelmingly democrat.

As an example, in 2020, Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens combined, Trump only got 20% of the vote, Manhattan by itself was 12%. In Staten Island on the other hand, Trump got 57%.

Aside from Staten Island, these people want this.

Yes the boroughs were always considered working class, and historically speaking they would vote blue. I understand why and it wasn't necessarily a bad thing..all that changed a few decades ago with the beginning of the culture war.

My extended family are educated business people and despite being New Yorkers, they always voted republican.

Staten Island is largely comprised of Italian Americans who left Brooklyn for larger homes. This ethnic group is family oriented, and to a large extent these days, business owners. It makes sense that they voted for Trump.

I am so sick of having to second guess every single thing people do to try and discern who they really are. It’s exhausting. Even what was a simple handshake now has to be analyzed until we’re paralyzed to figure out what their intent and motives are. Ugh. Sigh. The fog of war is thick and it’s really hard to see through it to find the actual truth.

I’m not saying one way or another with RD. I see evidence both ways for all of it. It’s just exhausting to be looking over one’s shoulder every second of every day. (God please give those of us who need it our second wind!)

I agree Sunnydaze.

There were conservative people who said that Trump could be the AntiChrist. False. Then there were the QAnons said that Trump was taking back the White House in January 2020 with a 4D chess move or whatever. Also false.

There are too many darn rabbit holes that turn out to be false and I’m not going down there.

If I see hard evidence for a theory I will consider it.

Here is one solid truth: the jab killed too many people, young and old. Trump will not back off of these killer shots. This is immorality at the highest level and there is actual evidence of this. Without safe and ethical healthcare, we are all doomed.

I suspect the cognitive shock and awe is a feature, not a bug, as they say.

They try to overwhelm our bandwidth so we give up or go down to simplistic thinking offered to us by all media ecosystems. I find giving the right hemisphere of my brain, where music and poetry and intuition and faith and fascination with nature and whole gestalt thinking resides, some time to comprehend things offline allows me to make a fuller model of what is actually happening. Chasing every theory online only overwhelms me, and since the most crucial information is hidden from us, we will be overwhelmed and not really have the whole picture.

Trump has publicly stated that "Operation Warpspeed was my greatest achievement in office." I have never heard him apologize or acknowledge his error.

Expand full comment

Apologize....are you serious...for greenlighting what was told to him was going to end the pandemic. It's misguided to keep assuming Trump was the one who championed the vaccines. He was greenlighting everything in order to fix the situation. His team, Fauci and Birx, they are the owners of the fraudulent mess we know of today. You will never see Trump apologize. As the damage of the vax program continues to be exposed, perhaps down the road he will express sadness at the outcome. But apologize for trying to help....nah...not going to happen.

Consider how DeSantis came into prominence so suddenly, out of nowhere. He has essentially the same "profile" as Obama. Ivy league schools, law degree, "perfect" nuclear family, government/political "service," wins an election improbably, has some success, and then all of a sudden is in the national spotlight. He has attacked all the things the establishment doesn't care about (like the culture war issues) while not attacking the one thing they do care about (Ukraine/forever war). I wish I could unsee it.

Expand full comment

That’s not true. Tucker Carlson asked a bunch of candidates for their position on Ukraine & DeSantis was heavily criticized by the establishment for his response.

And then he very publicly walked it back. And then went to Israel. He was either brought to heel or he signaled to the establishment that he's on their side.

Donation ending in 2 given to Daniel Penny who CLEARLY has an amazingly brave moral compass. It reminds me of how rare this really is and how treacherous it can be when you self-sacrifice for strangers. Reminded me of the time I was a kid riding my bike with my friend Gayle and her mealy mouthed father. We were jumped by 3 teens trying to steal our bikes- Gayle's dad said, no lie: "Take HER bike, just don't hurt US", pointing to his daughter and himself. I was 12. They took my brand new bike I had received for my birthday just 3 days earlier, and just for good measure, smashed it on top of me before riding away with it. Yeah. So when I see something like this, this incredible moral turpitude of DA Bragg, I know, without a shred of doubt, that he will get his comeuppance.

Funny how Tomatometer works: the more critics like a movie, the worse it is. The critics that give a movie a collective terrible score are usually outstanding. The only one everyone agreed on was Top Gun Maverick. Overall, though, critics are bought off like the rest of the gross, disgusting, woke media.

Expand full comment

Yes, I usually pick my movies by watching the 180 degree opposite of what Rotten Tomatoes ranks as good. The recent movie "Nefarious" got 96% positive ratings from over 1K movie goers and 15 schlubs at rotten tomatoes gave it 33%.

Haven’t been to a movie since the lockdown. Just can’t stomach supporting them.

We neither - for the past 10 years, I'd guess we've seen about 3-5 movies.

HOWEVER, we did go see Nefarious and it was literally the best movie I've seen ever. (I felt guilty giving AMC money, but it was worth it.)

I decided yesterday that I'm going to purchase DVD copies for all my family.

Nothing much has changed with movie critics. I was a huge movie buff back in the 70's thru the early 2000's and critics & raters were frequently way off the mark even back then. In fact, the worse the movie review, the more I wanted to see it. At some point, I completely tuned out all critics. Back then, movie critics were actual people but nowadays, rotten tomatoes and other movie rating rags are run by a constant revolving door of basement dwellers.

Just donated to the multiplier and saw a number of other donations ending in $2. Note: if you donate an extra fee to cover GiveSendGo's operating costs, your donation still shows up in the original amount ending in a 2. I even saw one mention of C&C.

Thanks for the note. I was wondering if it would mess it up if I donated to GiveSendGo.

Expand full comment

That is correct…I paused for a bit before hitting the “go” button because I didn’t know “if” the extra donation to GSG — would mess up my C&C donation ending in a “2”

Notch Johnson is spot-on…it worked and I received an email confirmation showing my C&C donation ending in a “2” and the additional donation was recorded in a different bucket…all good.

Expand full comment

I know folks have asked about this for previous multipliers so I thought'd I'd clarify this time since I was able to donate relatively early. That said, it should not matter whether or not the final number ends in a 2 as long as you feel you are donating to a worthy cause in an amount you can afford. Yes, it's good to see C&C make a notable difference that can be seen by the end digit 2 but that should not preclude contributing additional to the organizer if you deem their service worthy. You also had the option here to add a comment to say you came from C&C or whatever.

No surprise here about the excess deaths in the UK still happening in 2023. Those large "white fibrous clots" in the veins and arteries of corpses are still being seen by embalmers in 2023. And to think that this all seem to have started in the Year 2021. Gee, I wonder what new substance people were putting into their bodies starting in 2021 might be leading to these white fibrous clots that cause heart attacks and strokes?

It's maddening. It's always anything but the "vaccine".

It is truly astounding what full spectrum media dominance can do, it really is. The great thing is that people can still talk amongst themselves, and vote with their feet and their wallets. Take for example force multipliers (here) and consumer boycotts. You think CNN+ failed to get off the ground because they just didnt have the heart? No, it’s because nobody showed up. Eventually when it comes down to it BS WALKS.
