Lots of people wonder at the occasional openness of the Bidens about their corruption. Some wonder if they are merely slips of the tongue here and there, or if they might be too stupid to keep their corruption a secret, or if they are so arrogant and braggadocios as to think they were so high up no one would or could do anything about it anyway, so they occasionally just go ahead and openly brag about it.
After all, it's not as if they were the only ones doing it. It's a way of life in the Washington Swamp. In their eyes, there's nothing really wrong with it. It's just another perk that goes along with high office; the higher the office, the greater the perks. There is no Political Party that is not deeply involved in it, and most if not every long-time, multi-term, professional officeholder is just as corrupt as any of the Bidens. It's how Congressmen, Senators, Presidents, VPs, Ambassadors, Cabinet Officers, Agency Heads, etc., all get very very rich while drawing their comparatively paltry government salaries.
But, the Swamp is getting nervous, because,
It's OK to talk about it within Swamp circles, but no one is supposed to talk about these matters outside the Swamp circles, and certainly not out where the public can hear about it, or worse, where Trump might hear about it. While Trump might know what's going on, the Bidens occasionally get explicit about it, in public, and now the Public - not the Swamp - has the incriminating contents of Hunter's laptop computer.
This could wreck everything in the Washington Swamp Life Style.
Once anyone gets indicted, the plea bargaining, deal making, finger pointing and cross-blaming begins, the thing snowballs, and the whole corrupt Swamp could be in real jeopardy.
Marxism was born of Modernism and the Enlightenment's truly silly "Secular Humanism" Movement, in which the "enlightened" elites denied God and imagined themselves to be like gods themselves, knowing good and evil. Seeking worldly power, they developed a multi-step strategy of conquering human minds, human cultures, whole nations and the whole human world:
This is what the Cultural Marxism Movement does, even as the Revolutionary Marxist Movement continues to foment violent revolution against the status quo on earth. Spreading chaos, disorder, violence and fear, and then promising salvation from all of it through corrupted national and international politics, is the evil Marxist order of the day.
Virtually unresisted, the Secularist-Humanist Cultural-Marxist Movement has made such remarkable progress as to now own and operate the world's education industry, the news reporting industry and the whole field of Science. Through education, the infection of the Movement has touched every aspect of human life, including religion, law and politics.
You can follow the destructive trail of this evil movement through the Government Education Pages, the Mainstream News Media Pages, the Scientism Pages, the Perverted Catholicism Pages, the Divide And Conquer Pages, and elsewhere herein.
Way back in the day, Ludwig Von Mises said that Socialism is pure bureaucracy. We wrote about this profound warning and this definition in the Catholic Communism page. And what is a bureaucrat?
If you give someone a position as a petty bureaucrat with a little bureaucratic authority, the natural progression will be for that new bureaucrat to spend the rest of his career convincing everyone of the vital importance of his little area of bureaucracy, and creating little sub-bureaucracies beneath his own "bureau" and under his control.
Bureaucracy (Socialism) is cancerous; it is a form of social cancer.
It grows; it metastasizes. It takes over.
Marxism capitalizes on this to gain political control. If you want to get someone totally dependent on the state, make him an employee of the state, who's authority stems from the state, and he will devote himself to the state, and to the dictator at the top of the bureaucratic pyramid. And he will oppose anyone who threatens to weaken the pyramid.
The state will become his god.
Today, bureaucracy flat out opposes reality in many areas of human life. Puffed up, self-important bureaucratic experts leap at every chance to terrorize the rest of us with the great anthropomorphic global warming hoax, for instance. But there is absolutely no empirical evidence and no real science behind any of it. All there is to support the hoax are obviously flawed computer models. It's the same sort of "evidence" that warned President Trump that millions of Americans would by killed by the CCP-Virus.
A computer model is not evidence of anything. A computer may be programmed to tell an audience anything a programmer wants it to tell an audience, and it can even fail at that, if the programmer doesn't know what he's doing.
There is little or nothing scientific about any computer model.
And yet, the whole Marxocrat Party, and much of the Republicrat Party, are convinced of the false reality of anthropomorphic climate change to the point of seeking to reduce our "carbon footprint" and switch America over to "renewable" energy, as if there actually were such a thing.
(There is no such thing as "renewable" energey.)
Sleepy Joe Biden recently pronounced that his plan for world salvation from climate change involves getting us off of fossil fuels and switching to wind (which doesn't always blow) and sun (which doesn't always shine) and getting ride of oil, gas and coal, get this, by the year 2025.
Don't look now, but that's just five years from now. So, five years from now, Sleepy Joe would turn America into a giant junk yard, with millions upon millions of unusable cars, motorcycles, big and small trucks and tractor-trailers, trains, airplanes, helicopters, ships and boats, factories, power plants, all inoperable, all sitting and rusting away for lack of fuel.
You cannot get an airplane even off the ground, let alone across a nation or across an ocean, or even a mile or two, on wind power and/or solar power.
Nevertheless, the secular-humanist culturally-Marxist bureaucrats insist upon saving us all from a problem that does not exist, for our own good.
Amazon has launched a program to convert all of its delivery vehicles to be electric powered, to save the planet from global warming and reduce their "carbon footprint", and be politically correct, woke, loved and adored by all the green-wienies out there. The problem is, all those electric vehicles will all have to be periodically charged up before they can run, and the source of all that charging electricity will be carbon footprint producing fossil fuel consuming power plants.
And, wind and solar are simply not up to the task, as proved by the waves of brown-outs and black-outs rolling across California today, as California replaces fossil fuel plants with wind and solar. They are not only not reliable, but they are more expensive. Even a windmill is horribly complex and expensive just to build, to transport, to set up and to maintain, for a relatively brief productive life-span. Conceived, intended and planned, once again, to solve a bureaucratic problem that does not even exist.
If you want an example of silliness, look no farther than Elon Musk, America's richest welfare recipient. He wouldn't have a business if it were not taxpayer subsidized. He would not have a car plant if it were not taxpayer subsidized. He might never have sold a single car if the taxpayers were not subsidizing the price of every single car sold. His cars could never be charged up if not for fossil fuel power plants.
And, having become a billionaire at taxpayer expense, he is so convinced of the planet dooming climate change hoax that he is working out a Mars colonization project, quick, before the earth dies, and I'm sure this plan, too, is somehow taxpayer subsidized. But whoever the silly twits are who win the opportunity to get on his first colonizing rocket to Mars, they had better take along enough food, water and air to keep themselves going for however many days they intend to colonize Mars. Because there is nothing on Mars to eat, drink or breath.
And, again, they would be fleeing from a problem that does not exist.
Again, something that shouldn't bear repeating, but does need to be repeated due to all the mal-education going on today: we are not running out of "finite" fossil fuels. Every year, in the entire history of man's use of fossil fuels, the known reserves go up. Never down. Next year, the known reserves will be greater than they are today.
In all likelihood, Christ will come again before we run out of fossil fuels.
With all the Americans running around all masked-up, social-distanced, elbow-bumping, elbow-coughing, obsessively hand-washing, it's hard to even call all of this behavior silly out loud without being turned on by the masses and maybe lynched.
But it's a CCP Instituted Hoax.
And the bureaucrats intend to keep it going forever, if they can.
Note how the known cases go up commensurate with how testing for it goes up. And how the cases go up in locked-down and/or "mitigating" populations more than they do in opened-up populations, like Sweden. Indicating that masks, social distancing, etc., cause infections to go up.
And note well how, after the discovery of the padded and fraudulent deaths attributed to CCP-Virus of 200,000+, they are still the "official" death numbers being worked with, although the real number is known to be somewhere between 1,000 and 20,000, and probably closer to the lower end. In the same range as deaths from the common cold, or maybe snakebite, or lightning.
And, note well the slick language describing CCP-Virus attributed deaths today. Most all of them are dying from CCP-Virus "Complicaitons". What are these Complications? Things like stage four cancers, congestive heart disease, muscular dystrophy, etc., etc., etc. Maybe being run over by a car. If the victim either tested positive for CCP-Virus, or was in contact with anyone who tested positive, or in contact with anyone who was in contact with anyone who tested positive, the official, certified cause-of-death was automatically listed as death from CCP-Virus.
Dr. Fauci is no real scientist. He is a secular-humanist, culturally-Marxist Bureaucrat, who practices Scientism, and not real science.
The real problem at the core of all of this silliness is an educationally induced loss of a proper sense of priorities. Beginning with God.
Proper prioritization resolves many problems before they exist. Proper prioritization for life is:
Secular Humanism, Cultural Marxism and Bureaucracy took too many of us of the track with the first priority - God. Take God out of the picture and everything goes to hell.
That one thing, ignored, forgotten or opposed, takes everything that follows on paths leading away from truth and reality.
At the birth of the American nation, even though the Protestant fracturing of Christianity had done immeasurable damage to the unity of Western Civilization, the Founders, the Framers and Authors of the Declaration and the Ratifiers of the Constitution, as a body, held a priori to the One And Only One God Principle. And that is how we came to be the USA. It couldn't have been done otherwise.
I submit that that is what we have to get back to, to survive as the USA.
Today is the Feast Day of Christ The King.
And of His Kingdom there shall be no end.
Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thy altar. We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be; but to be more surely united with Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy most Sacred Heart. Many indeed have never known Thee; many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart. Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee; grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger. Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or who discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one Shepherd. Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism, and refuse not to draw them all into the light and the kingdom of God. Turn Thine eyes of mercy towards the children of that race, once Thy chosen people: of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may it now descend upon them, a laver of redemption and of life. Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: "Praise be to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to it be glory and honor forever." Amen.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
