I’m very fortunate.
We’re all fortunate as Americans to live in this great nation, but given the political craziness and fears that many conservatives face of retribution from work or social circles for making their political leanings known, I’m quite thankful for where I am at the moment.
Firstly, as an author, I have the time to actually go through the transcripts of the Democrat hoax investigation proceedings to see what’s actually happening, rather than having to rely on a media who’s provided us with nothing but lies and obfuscations for the past three years.
I can also watch the proceedings (when they’re televised) and stay up to date with all of the political machinations, directly from the sources, as I work for myself and make my own hours.
As a self-published author, I don’t have to worry as many of my friends & fellow authors do, about the corporate culture of the Big 12 Publishers and agents who live in uber-liberal bubbles, fearing that if I truly speak my mind I may forgo a future advance or book deal.
Lastly, I learned early on in my life that anger can be a gift, if properly channeled and the energy transformed into a positive, motivational force to change whatever it is that has caused that anger.
Putting all of these variables together, I’ve taken it upon myself to use this time of political craziness and ostracizing of conservatives to deal “Red Pills” whenever possible. If you’ve heard the term but aren’t really sure what it means to “Red Pill” someone, here’s a line from a popular movie that may help you understand:
“This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I’m offering is the truth. Nothing more.”
Of all the opportunities provided for me to “Red Pill” in the current climate of constant lies from the left and their media sycophants, the greatest ammunition I’m continuously given, directly from them, has been their blatant hypocrisies on any number of issues.
If you’re the type of person who may both be willing and have the opportunity to pass along a “Red Pill” to a friend, family member or co-worker, let’s run through some of the biggest & most blatant ones we’ve been provided of late:
BELIEVE ALL WOMEN!!!
The left and media screeched this with all of their might during the (Justice) Kavanaugh confirmation hearings and subsequent hoax investigations.
But their own cries went unheeded when extremely credible allegations were made against Keith Ellison (former Minnesota DNC chair), despite police reports, photographs & credible testimony about his being a domestic abuser.
Likewise, none in the DNC or media complex would even recognize any of the large number of women who came forward with credible allegations of Bill Clinton’s rape, unwanted sexual advances and use of his office to have his way with multiple women.
And of course they didn’t want to bring up his wife, Hillary, going after each of his accusers to destroy their lives and credibility.
We must mention here, of course, Jeffrey Epstein, the most prolific pedophile this nation has known who ruined the lives of many young women and was, of course, closely connected to Democrats.
WHISTLEBLOWERS ARE HEROES!!!
This is a rallying cry we’re hearing all too often today, but the media wants to do everything they can to keep you from looking at any whistleblower who came before the current CIA & DNC operative tasked to the White House to spy on President Trump, as each of them have been targeted by the government and media to destroy their lives through bankruptcy brought on by government lawsuits, loss of their jobs and destruction of any credibility their name carried.
See: Kevin Shipp, Bill Binney, Bradley Manning, Commander Ben Strickland and any of the hundreds of others who came before them.
But this one, they tell us, is different.
Funny that one of the networks screeching this mantra was ABC, who colluded with their colleagues at CBS to ask them to fire the former ABC employee who leaked the Amy Robach admission to Project Veritas that the network spiked the Epstein story 3 years ago, which means they could have likely saved hundreds if not thousands of young women from that monster.
Rules for thee but not for me when dealing with the MSM, I guess.
YOU CANNOT QUESTION THE CREDIBILITY OF A SOLDIER OR VETERAN!!!
This one comes to us in reference to LTC Vindman, the former soldier-turned NSC director at the forefront of the current UkraineGate hoax (as well as wolf-in-sheep’s clothing Tulsi Gabbard, but that’s for another story).
Although Vindman has proven himself to have attempted to falsify the transcript, to have major gaps in knowledge of what was happening in Ukraine and a major bias in this situation, we are told that we can’t attack his credibility because of his status as a military veteran.
What they don’t want you to look at, however, is the disgusting treatment provided by the same media, at the direction of the Obama administration, many of whom are married or directly related to executives and talking heads in the MSM, of General Flynn.
Although General Flynn is a decorated 32 year veteran of Military Intelligence and Joint Special Operations Command, having been credited for drastically increasing the ability for intelligence to flow from receipt to tactical use on the battlefield, for some reason the media doesn’t feel that he is owed the same respect they demand for Vindman.
Neither is that same respect given to LTC Jim Hickman, a highly-decorated veteran of the same rank as Vindman, who was once his (Vindman’s) superior and dared to make public a statement of his (Hickman) once having to reprimand Vindman during a multinational exercise for speaking poorly about Americans and our military to his Russian counterparts – if you read his Twitter thread it seems Vindman has had traitorous ambitions for quite some time.
INVESTIGATIONS ARE VITAL!!!
When it was “Mueller Time” and the RussiaGate hoax was in full swing, we heard this rallying cry over and over, with many in the media even saying that “if President Trump has nothing to hide, he should welcome any and all investigations into his dealings.”
Isn’t it strange that these same exact people are bending over backwards and using every bit of mental gymnastics to say that these same rules don’t apply to Hunter Biden, in regards to his $83,000/month job at an energy company in a country his father was in charge of giving billions of dollars to, or his securing of $1.5 billion investment from a Chinese state-owned bank during a political trip with his father?
And they haven’t even mentioned Joe Biden’s brother winning a multi-billion dollar no-bid construction contract in Iraq by the US government, despite zero experience in construction.
WE NEED EVIDENCE TO REPORT A STORY!!!
This talking point has been brought up again by the recent ABC clip aired by Project Veritas, showing that ABC spiked a story about Jeffrey Epstein three years before the public knew the levels of debauchery and disgusting crimes he and his pals were committing, despite mountains of evidence against he, his friends and even the Clintons (don’t you just love a point that can kill two birds with one stone?).
ABC said they didn’t spike the story, but rather couldn’t air because it “didn’t meet their reporting standards.”
It’s funny that the same outlet that boasts such high reporting standards aired heavily doctored footage from a Kentucky gun range to claim it was a battle in Syria (to make President Trump look bad), aired disgusting attacks on teenagers in the Covington kids case without any due diligence to investigate the validity of their claims (it was also fake), or in airing any number of quickly debunked hoax claims against (Justice) Kavanaugh during the chaos of his confirmation hearings and the Jussie Smollett hate hoax.
THE FIRST AMENDMENT IS SACROSANCT!!!
It used to be the media who would go to great lengths to protect the first amendment and rights of journalists to “speak truth to power” no matter where it led, citing journalistic freedom and freedom of speech whenever government stepped out of line.
But isn’t it interesting that none of them spoke up for Sharyl Atkisson, who is still involved in a court case against the Obama administration for spying on her and the entire CBS newsroom she worked in for her coverage of his Fast & Furious scandal, his administration spying on 25 Associated Press reporters, or jailing other reporters who wouldn’t do Obama’s bidding?
And why aren’t they speaking up against the first amendment attacks by YouTube, Facebook and Twitter as they are deplatforming, demonetizing and censoring conservative voices for nothing more than their support of our President or going against the left’s narratives?
YOU CAN’T ARGUE WITH SCIENCE!!!
This is one of the most laughable, as the left has taken to picking & choosing where and when science is sacrosanct, and where it is inconvenient to them and shouldn’t be trusted.
To begin with, I think we’ve all heard the oft-repeated claim that “all climate change scientists agree that humans are causing global warming.”
This is false on a number of fronts: first, only ⅓ of the climate change scientists have actually taken a position on whether humans have anything to do with climate change, and not even all of them have said that it does.
I wrote an article for this publication in August titled titled “If Climate Change is Real, Why Do They Lie and Hide Data?” that goes into some very interesting questions about that whole charade.
But aside from the climate change claims that we’re being inundated with, if science is so important to the left, why does it suddenly not matter when we can look at the DNA, physical makeup and chromosomal difference of males & females of our species to realize that there are, in fact, many scientific differences between men and women?
REPUBLICANS ARE RACISTS AND HOMOPHOBIC!!!
This fallacy has become more and more evident with the #WalkAway and #Blexit movements that have gained so much popularity in the last several years. If you want to see where the true racists and homophobes lie on the political spectrum, all you have to do is look to how the leaders of these movements are being treated by the left.
While leftists and democrat politicians love to pander to the gay and black populations when it’s time to vote, if you look to anyone from those demographics who have spoken out about the hollow-promises of the left (Brandon Straka, Dave Rubin, Dr. Ben Carson, Thomas Sowell, Terrence K. Williams, Kanye West, Candace Owens, Zuby), it becomes obvious just how little the left actually cares about them or their opinions.
I know this article has been a little longer than usual, but I wanted to use this opportunity to provide you with ammunition for the fight at hand.
If you, like me, are at the point where you’re sick of standing on the sidelines and watching the destruction being caused to our nation by the leftists who are hell-bent on removing a duly-elected President with no care of the damage it will do to our nation, consider using these points when the opportunity presents itself.
Thankfully, through their blatant lies and hypocrisy many of our countrymen and women are finally opening their eyes to see that what we’ve been told for the past several decades is not the complete truth in some cases, and are outright lies in many.
Whenever you find yourself in a conversation with someone who is beginning to “wake up” to this reality, pull one of the points above from your toolbox and use it to “Red Pill” them to wake up to reality.
It is time for us to transition from the silent majority to the angry majority, and in this phase of the offensive, every voice and soldier we have in the fight counts.
Make your voice heard, grow our army of Americans who are sick of these games and let’s take our country back!
