"Where's the ACLU on this?!"

Same as always: sitting in their offices writing up their lawsuits to protect the poor they just want to breath free illegals, and get them their free bammyphones, apartments, and stipends!

Several people have accurately pointed out the hypocrisy of the insane progressives. The thing is, a charge of hypocrisy has no sting to it for them. You have to have some respect for the truth for an accusation of hypocrisy to have some impact. They are so attached to the six impossible things they believe before breakfast that they are mentally unable to understand anything that contradicts their beliefs. Any contradiction that is called to their attention is called racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, white privilege, etc., etc.

If you do shove it in their faces, you get exactly the type of reaction we're seeing now. They spout the tenets of their liberal philosophy while moving the illegal aliens out with the National Guard. You see it in so many ways: the liberal actor who advocates for someone else's kid to go to Somalia and die so he can feel good, the greenies who tell you that you should eat bugs while they don't, the politician who makes huge money off his anthropogenically driven global warming scam whilst flying around the world in his private jet.

The democrats aren't the only ones. There are plenty of rethuglicans that exhibit the same mental illness.

Because, ultimately, that's what it is, a mental illness. It is a willing disconnect from reality and they refuse to question it. They hold to the disconnect so strongly that they cannot believe that any intelligent person will not accept their delusion. The ones that won't accept it are unintelligent, racist, deplorables bitterly clinging to God, gold and guns and they must be forced using the power of the state. They do not want to wake up from their dreams of utopia. They refuse to question any of it.

If this devolves to a hot civil war, you can expect all of the insane idiots to accuse those rebelling against the new world order of over-reacting, of wanting the conflict to get bloody. Because their mental illness can't allow them to see how their opponents are getting fed up. They cannot be forced into treatment because they don't want to change. It is possible that some of them may wake up when starvation has them eating rotten fruit or meat or when they are gasping in agonal breathing while they try to keep their intestines in their bodies, but then its too late.

Quote from this Ticker: "This was a major part of what led to the first Civil War; the North and DC passed laws that wildly favored certain business lines in taxation while punishing others, which just happened to be all Southern States."

The North saw how rich the South became because of the cheap labor provided by slavery (maybe free labor, along with other fringe benefits for the owners), and they were probably jealous of their southern brethren.

As the North was industrializing, they needed cheap labor, through "emancipation" of blacks. The civil war made that happen. Later, women were marshalled into the labor force through "emancipation" by the feminist movement.

The whole business of camouflaging ulterior motives of power and money, in the name of freedom and justice etc., is a mockery of truth.

On top of that, the ulterior motives are further obscured by virtue signaling by the tyrants.

The "philanthropy" by Bill Gates and associates is a prime example, in the current times. They are so "noble", "virtuous", propagators of "freedom" and "democracy" "health" etc. etc. that they want to enslave everyone: man, woman, white, black, brown or yellow, all over the world, or kill as many as they would like to suit their own agendas.

On top of that they want to institutionalize injustice to the majority and cause widespread chaos, by pushing the demands of a few minorities, e.g. in the name of "justice" for LGBT etc..

The above-mentioned world of deception is created by a handful of those who have been abusing the centralization of power.

It is time for decentralization of power back to the people!

The US civil war has often been mischaracterized with a slavery-only cause because that way demagogues can justify any and all actions taken to end slavery, including the annihilation of the South. The first way to justify a war is to demonize your opponent. Make him out to be less than human and not worthy of living. Lie about him. Then destroy him and his loved ones and his property. Or confiscate his property. The property that Arlington Cemetery sits on was owned by RE Lee until stolen by the US.

Watch what the left is doing, as the "conservatives" remain silent.

Politicians mostly love war. They profit monetarily from the production of war materials. They don't donate their own sons to the effort. They love the chaos as it is a distraction from the real reason for human suffering - them and their ridiculous laws and policies.

Well @Blanca if the cause was only slavery then explain why we haven't nuked China yet, or the Congo for that matter, considering that BOTH enslave significant portions of their citizens.

@Nadavegan:<i> If I were a governor of a border state, I would pay for the infrastructure to move migrant from my border towns to the nearest blue state.</i>

Heres a golden opportunity for imaginative and ballsy governors, AGs, maybe even local sheriffs.

@Msheff - Apple. Go into the settings on your keyboard and stop using the "slanted accent" style quotes. Apple plays interesting games with the character set; the actual ASCII quotes work perfectly well.

Bare "html" doesn't work (on purpose, as it makes it too easy to hijack another person's browser.) Look at the "limited html" link (click it for a pop-up window); in short a lot of the "simple" codes work in square brackets instead of angle ones.

If the proclamation of freedom for slaves was the overriding purpose of the war why did Lincoln not do that immediately before or after the shooting began? And why did the proclamation only apply to the states in rebellion? No one has ever offered an explanation on this. To my knowledge no such thing was ever proposed for the whole of the United States and logically that means slavery was still completely legal there before and during the whole war including up to Appomattox. And until the Constitution was amended for that matter.

I know why. It was called Lincoln's War in the Nothern press. There were slaves in the north and he knew he could not further subjugate the south if the people didn't support his war. And there were enough folk ambivalent about slavery that if he made it about slaves the states would have quit sending regiments supported by state tax dollars. They mostly didn't care about the slavery issue. Gettysburg was a loss for the South but the number of dead would have weakened Northern resolve and they would have been ready for ceasefire and let the South go on it's way. That is why the Gettysburg Address was important- to galvanize the North. It was a brilliant stroke and I doubt he came up with that. I bet he had a speechwriter par excellence who knew what to say and it worked. Masterful stroke of propaganda no doubt.

And yes I am a Son of the South. The confederacy was flawed and would not have survived. They needed international legitamacy and that required victory which was impossible due to the manufacturing being centered in the north. Buuuttt they were morally correct and legally entitled to secede. I give them respect for standing their ground when Lincoln and his ilk were acting illegally in the economic arena as Karl points out. They stayed with their convictions and that took brass.

Sorry - long rant. Long day and I'm just blowing off steam.

The number 1 reason so-called conservatives suck every bit as much as the shitlibs is the most of them just LOVE war, the military, USA! USA! jingoism. They never met a defense (read: OFFENSE) budget they did not want to increase to insane proportions.

They cheerlead the anti Russian propaganda AND want the saber rattling against China amped up to 11. I will never forgive them for their bullshit during the Bush Jr. years.

Fuck them with a rusty smiley too.

I think the sides for this hypothetical non-shooting war are parsed wrong. It's not red states vs blue states (although some are decidedly red or blue). It's dense urban areas vs more rural areas because that's how blue and red really align. There are plenty of conservatives in upstate New York or inland California and plenty of libtards in Miami or Austin.
This creates an interesting opportunity: lay siege to the cities, even if one at a time. No shooting, just dump a few concrete loads in the middle of key bridges, bulldoze a few electrical towers, and block water inlets in a few dams. In fact, a trucker boycott by itself would be devastating. There is little need for actual physical contact between "attackers" and "defenders". Don't sweat the suburbs; desperate escaping city dwellers will take care of them.
There was a time (not long ago) that people in the countryside depended on the cities for manufactured goods (like appliances, tractors, industrial equipment, food products. etc.) but now these come from overseas. Cities today seem to produce only paper: with names like insurance, banking, equities, derivatives, and bonds, all fictional "products" that only represent something of value.
Except for DC (which needs to be destroyed utterly) siege and surrender of just a few example cities should bring the others into line quickly, IMO. These are not self-sufficient or courageous people.

Texas should secede and cut off the oil and gas. Newsome is a certified NAZI anyhow. He don't care about law. Florida should parachute 1000 on the Vineyard. Del Rio is getting 1000 a day and Beetlejuice is crying about a few busloads in Chicago. DC is whining. Shit, they can steal unlimited funds. I don't know what the hell Abbott is doing, but his opponent will send buses to Venezuela to pick them up. The fools are going to vote for Buttho. Gasoline will mark up to Callifornia prices within 2 years.

I heard these countries south are emptying their prisons and pointing north. Us older people might recall when Castro did that in the 1970's.

They are trying to fuck up the country maximum. They could all fall over dead, as far as I'm concerned. FJB says the pandemic is over. Bet the jabs aren't, or are they sneeking out the back door? A civil war against these people would be fine with me as long as it was directed at about 2 million vermin.

@Heartlander I'm a bit late but THIS is what I was referencing

It seems this was quickly over turned, which I missed at the time.

Seems clear that public outcry took care of this one. Will we all be so lucky?

Anyone who has never listened to Our Enemy the State, by Albert Jay Nock, it is worth the time. It can be downloaded on

Nock said the Constitution was a coup on the States by the US elite. He says (written in 1935) that the bipartisan system was set up for controlled opposition. Jefferson thought the 2 parties were a bunch of bullshit. The US prospered because the pie was cut up and willing people came and built the country, which the elite have conspired through slight of hand to steal it later.

If you take what Nock says seriously, you might understand the US has been ruled by an elite uniparty since its inception. The exception was when the Republicans took over with Lincoln. Their poison was too strong for the other side to swallow. Currently, the Democrat Party is off the reservation. It appears the Establishment Republicans are willing to go along with them, just like they did when Wilson, FDR and his cousin brought in fascism.

If these bastards think we are going along with cutting the genitalia off kids, boys in the girls bathroom, killing born babies, forcing jabs, bringing in 100 million illegals to destroy the country, their starvation green deal and all the other bullshit, maybe it is time for 1861 all over again. This time, know your enemy. You see them on TV every day.

The only races that don't stick together and prefer their own are the White races, here in the USA. That's suicidal, and it's time we start taking care of our own, in preference to nice folks of the other races.

That doesn't mean we must hate other races, it means we must love our own race.

Very interesting about the Bonnie Blue Flag. I just bought one. I'm going to hang it next to my Come and Take It flag I purchased in Gonzalez, TX.

Can't site where I saw this, but if I see again time permitting, I will post the link.

As a Conservative minded person, yes everyone above who said disparaging things about the movement is absolutely correct. It lost its way a long time ago and compounded the problem in its most recent iteration. One needs to go way back to find the legitimate roots.

On another note, a lot more breakage has to occur before one state cuts off another. The common currency would have to be destroyed. Most in solid, red, producing areas have the same mortgages and bills to be paid, oftentimes to lefty blue interests. Funny that.

Want to know when this hits, and it will be ugly, very ugly. When property rights are reasserted in the red areas. What does this mean?

Ownership and use taxes are eliminated by legislative decree and then the mortgages are declared null and void. Once they take away the necessity of their people to work for the blue interests, they only have to take care of themselves. Then the borders close. This is a real Conservative position.

If you have to pay to keep it or use it, you do not own it. This includes your labor, making you a slave to the blue hive.

People need to work less overall, or have significant free time between work cycles like it always was before the blue revolutions, to be actively involved in the governance of their families, communities and states of residence.

Keeping people broke and busy out of necessity is the technique used by the wealthy elite for centuries. We have seen this before. This is where i despise conservatism inc, not worth capitals, as they have sold a false version of the WASP work ethic and in the modern era made it not only a cure-all for a person's system imposed problems but a statement of personal honor, worth and status.

Sounds like ci is playing in the same club as the blue left, because it is part of the same scam.

did anyone see the first segment of Tucker Carlson last night?

Jesus F-ing Christ! Trannies, drag queens, and groomers, on my!

The tranny was this Canadian teacher thing wearing GIGANTIC boobs the size of large watermelons. Local school board? Nothing to see here, move along!

One drag queen was performing a disgusting "dance" in front of a child.

Then your libtard teachers (a la Libs of TikTok) grooming children.

Surprised I didn't have a stroke.

Abbott in Texas should start a go-fund-the-wall site and give the fed the finger. I'll bet 100 million Americans would donate and we would have a wall in no time. Unfortunately Abbott is lame and does nothing. Never will.

@Baltgayveteran, I wonder how much longer Tucker will be on a major network? I love the guy 98% of the time but he's getting bolder with the things he says and at some point the mob will come for him.

In regards to that segment I can't help but ask...where the fuck are these kids fathers! Why hasn't "tits" been taken out on the playground by said fathers for a quick game of "smear the queer"!

Is that still a game kids play? Probably not and just saying it would likely get kids kicked out of school today. When I was in school we played smear the queer every day at recess. It was brutal but fun.
