  1. Michael, everyone, Notice, too, the Pence-Ryan email exchange linked to from the letter: https://files.constantcontact.com/899f3f04701/106dc3d3-c645-4215-bdd3-addad65bade2.pdf Ellen

  2. ThatGuy, Since World War II the U.S. has been in a new phase of degradation to which Rand was pretty much oblivious. Socialism vs. Capitalism, Left vs. Right, Liberal vs. Conservative is now just entertainment, like television wrestling, hiding venal, thieving, murdering Mafia-like corruption. It makes “taxing the rich” or “robbing Peter to pay Paul” look good. I wrote “pretty much” because once in a while Rand would acknowledge that something more sinister than differences in political philosophy was going on. The only example I can think of at the moment is when, in an essay, s

  4. "BLM Activist Arrested For Siege on U.S. Capitol" WASHINGTON, D.C. – A Utah man was charged today in federal court in the District of Columbia in connection with the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021. John Earle Sullivan, a Black Lives Matter Activist and anti-Trumper, was charged by complaint with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and one count of interfering with law enforcement engaged in the lawful performance of their o

  5. TG, The following article at CNN shows it is accurate, but slanted. Investigators pursuing signs US Capitol riot was planned Since this is a CNN article, I had to hold my nose and try not to vomit to read it just to see if Carmine Sabia's claim was accurate. It is. However, one part is fact with a thing left out, and the other part is a logical inference. CNN has become so epistemologically corrupted amidst its constant tangle of lies, I bet no one there even thought about this. First the fact. The article actually is all about the attack being planned. And the article is p

  6. Ellen, That could only happen after he leaves office. I doubt the Senate under McConnell will even schedule a trial. And the Senate can't convict President Trump if he is not in office. The purpose of the trial is to decide if he should stay in office or to remove him. According to Dershowitz, there is no such thing as an impeachment trial solely to strip a former president of his political rights. There is a problem with the impeachment, though. Once again, according to Dershowitz, President Trump's speech that the Dems are trying to hold up as a smoking gun is protected by the Cons

  8. Things are looking bleak. Based on this tweet and some other indications, rather than focus on keeping Trump in, we should start focusing on destroying the impostors. And breaking up big tech. There are certain indications that this is doable and the pushback will be massive (it's already starting), so I will keep contributing about this on this very thread until the Deep State unravels--or better, gets unraveled. I want to keep hope alive for OL readers to stay inspired that President Trump will be sworn in next week, but reality is what it is, not what I want it to be.

  9. TG, apt observation about mainstream Objectivist intellectuals. I.e. It is "science", right? It's big business - right? Praising them and the people as inherently admirable, irrespective of the morality of some scientists and big businessmen, their purpose, methods and their aims. Nor their involvement with Big Government? Wealth is good - therefore he who has amassed the most (e.g. Bill Gates) must be better than good. And so on, especially with Big Tech. As if on a quest - of which I'm certain - to find O'ist real life heroes (and there DO exist those, not always in obvious places, ofte

  15. Here is a discussion of that and of several other similar theories floating around about Biden not being sworn in or being allowed to be sworn in and immediately removed from office. Mike Adams is looking at all this and saying he, himself, does not know what is coming. That it is possible Biden will be sworn in. Like me, he believes if that happens and none of this other stuff does, the administration will collapse under the weight of its own corruption added to the exposure it has received. Sometimes Mike goes too far, but this is one of his better videos. He doesn't go far at all

For people who want to keep hanging on to hope until the last moment, and I admit, I am one of them (notice I never say "once Biden is inaugurated," I always say, "if Biden gets sworn in"), here is an Alex Jones video dated yesterday (Jan. 13) interviewing Dr. Steve Pieczenik. Is This Dr. Steve Pieczenik's Last Appearance on Infowars? Pieczenik claims that Biden will not be sworn in, that President Trump will be, and that massive arrests will happen of top political actors. He said openly that we are right now in the middle of a military coup. As I understand it, this mea

  23. I still use Facebook despite all the crap they did against President Trump. I don't know for how long, though. I might keep the account open due to Internet Marketing groups I belong to that came with IM products I bought. I'll see. But when I scroll to see if anything catches my eye, there is only one thing I stop to look at with regularity. It's a guilty pleasure. I love watching videos of animals being rescued. I've seen a kangaroo, a sea gull, an elk, a wildcat, and so on being cut loose from entanglement in wire (usually from a fence), a bucket sawed off the head of a bear

  24. Here is President Trump's response to the impeachment folly without even mentioning impeachment. It kinda neutralizes any potential (but extremely remote) weird thing like the Senate being called for a special session in the next day or two. With the text of President Trump's Jan. 6 speech and this, there is no way the Senate could even pretend objectivity and convict without looking like a blatant kangaroo court. (Sorry to keep embedding with Twitter. As soon as I word out something easier like for Rumble, I will immediately jump over to that.) Michael

The important part of this video is that the Monkey Werx guy apologized for saying that President Trump was in a safe location and not the White House. He said the people who give him information, who are almost always spot on and who he trusts, sent him incorrect information about this. So now he is passing that on, too, with an apology. He feels terrible about it. He said in an environment where conflicting information is flying all over the place, sometimes things like this happen. But to always keep faith with hi

Gab, a good guy, is posting on Twitter, a bad guy, saying the Parler people (good guys), that is, its main competitor, can speak freely on Gab's platform (which they could anyway by simply creating an account), and I am embedding this on OL from Twitter (a bad guy).

  43. TG, Thanks, much, for drawing attention to that letter, which I just now read in full. The analysis and prognostication do give me hope that Trump is still trying for a second term. I'll start to be convinced when/if points 3 and 8 materialize: Dwindling time between now and January 20 - and the impeachment plan is supposedly going to be started Monday. Edge-of-the-cliff denouement, whichever way it goes. —- The letter includes a link to material which was very informative to me about Pence. He has been an enemy in the camp all along. Thanks agai

  44. It also is unlikely that the whole "Orange Man Is Literally Hitler!!!1!" thing is 100% theater. The whole leftist worldview is a land of schizophrenic make-believe. To some non-trivial extent, they undoubtedly feel that destroying Trump—socially, psychologically, or physically—is the right and moral thing to do.

  45. More generally, Ayn Rand often wrote about those who hate the good for being the good. I refer to this as misocalosism (Greek: miso- disdain, hate; calos the good, the beautiful). A subset of misocalosists are cacophiliacs, who revel in filth and the ugly. In "The Age of Envy" (Return of the Primitive; formerly The New Left), she identified the hate of the good for being the good as the root cause of envy, which one must distinguish from jealousy. Jealousy is wanting what someone else has, or protecting what is yours. Envy is begrudging someone of what he has. Jealousy might lead one to s
