I get a lot of emails promising me things. They promise me that Trump activated the insurrection act so that he and General Flynn can retake America. They promise me that pictures of Hunter Biden with 10-year-olds — and proof that Joe Biden was complicit — are about to be released. They promise me that Italy leaders, from the Pope on down, have been or will be arrested for (a) pedophilia, (b) murder, (c) interfering in the American election, or (d) all of the above. They promise me that people deep within the U.S. government have been turned and will publicly confess their election sins.
All of those emails are deus ex machina emails. Deus ex machina means “the god from the machine.” It was a theatrical device with roots in the ancient Greek theater. When the plot reached a point at which no human agency could save the beleaguered characters, a crane (the machine) would lower onto the stage an actor dressed as a god. There’d often be exciting noises and smoke to maintain the image. And then that “god” would set things right and ensure a happy ending. It’s a fiction. It’s not reality.
There is no insurrection act, there are no Italian confessions that anyone is going to act upon, there are no hidden witnesses about to come out.
And even if all of that were true, the Democrats have clamped down on the engines of communication that would allow anyone to hear their sounds. Remember the philosophy question asking, “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there, does it make a sound?” Same goes here: If the truth is spoken but all the megaphones have been seized, can anyone hear? No. The answer is no.
But… (You knew I was going to leave you on such a downer note, right?)
There actually is a deus ex machina here. It’s us. We are the ones who can make things right. I haven’t yet figured out how to deal with the election system, but we can make change against the private sector …
Follow your favorite conservative sites. Conservative sites are currently heavily dependent on social media for their traffic. If you’re going off social media, you need to support your favorite sites in another way. You can pay for an annual subscription, donate to their PayPal accounts, or simply visit them every single day, even if you don’t have time to read anything. …
Also, cast your mind back to the fact that, even before social media, we used to communicate. We did it via emails, via phone calls, via snail mail, and via getting out and talking to people face to face. …
I am talking about legal, non-violent action. Dig out Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and follow them. He advocated clever, non-violent tactics, and he was exactly right, as we know to our cost. Remember, the tactics are good; it was just the leftist goals that were bad.
Copy the Democrat boycott machine. And remember that it wasn’t just that Democrats stopped buying products. They would inundate the companies they were boycotting with phone calls, emails, letters, etc., letting the companies know exactly what was coming their way. …
Leftists took the culture; we can re-take it — and we can do it without a single smidgen of violence. Why? Because the leftists will help us. First, their coalition is a house of sand. They divided, and then subdivided, and the sub-sub-divided people into dozens of victim/identity groups and told all of them that the enemy was on the right. With the right routed, there is nothing to hold these groups together. They will destroy each other in the rush for spoils. I’m waiting for the day when the Squad realizes that Pelosi is an old white woman wrongfully occupying a spot that belongs to one of them — and brutally de-thrones her.
Second, as we’ve witnessed in Democrat-run states this year, they may be ruthless, but they’re also utterly incompetent. Their gift is destruction. They have no other abilities.
To sum up this post: Things are really bad. There is no magical deus ex machina who’s going to appear in the next nine days to save America. Therefore, it’s up to us to act. We have the power — the legal, non-violent power — but we have to stop waiting for someone else to do it for us.
