We Need A Tom Doniphon

Recently, the nation’s cat ladies have been asking the rest of us, “Aren’t you afraid that Trump is going to become a dictator and start bullying journalists and judges just to get his way?” Of course we’re all suppose to start from the premise that Trump is Hitler reborn and just looking for a reason to impose martial law. The fact that Trump has assiduously adhered to the rules of the game to this point is just proof that he is Hitler. After all, Hitler won an election too and we all know how that worked out.

My answer to that query is, “No, I’m not afraid Trump will do all those things. I’m afraid he won’t do those things.” For the last three decades, probably longer, the guys allegedly on the side of the rest of us, have been obsessed with playing by the rules. The thing I don’t fear is that Trump will “go too far” or fail to respect the rules of the game. I don’t care about those rules anymore. Those rules are the bars of the cage. What we don’t need now is a guy obsessed with procedure. We need a guy willing to break the rules.

We have reached a point where it is heads they win, tails we lose. The game has been rigged to make reforming the system within the rules an impossibility. When a majority of the people favor a policy that the managerial class opposes, the policy gets hamstrung by the rules of the game. All of a sudden, the process is sacred. When the managerial class wants something for their masters, they change the rules so it either flies through or simply happens without anyone noticing. The process is not all that important.

All the blather about America being a nation of laws is just cover for the fact that ours is a lawless nation ruled by lawless men. An obvious example is the Ninth Circuit judges, who have fabricated a legal justification for throwing sand in the gears of a wildly popular executive order issued by President Trump. These are not men enforcing the law or respecting the laws. These are men who hold the law in contempt. All that matters to them is obedience to the weird secular cult we have come to call Progressivism.

If what it takes to break the stranglehold this cult has on society is a dictator willing to toss a few judges from a helicopter, then sign me up for dictatorship. I’d much prefer to live in a society where me and my neighbors meet once a month to govern ourselves and our community, but that’s not on offer. What is on offer now is the post-modern theocracy that uses the corrupted and degraded tools of 18th century liberalism to maintain its grip on society. Squads of government men rounding these people up in the middle of the night sounds pretty good right now.

Totalitarians attempt to change the world and human nature, by controlling all aspects of society, including the granular aspects of the political system. It’s what makes reform impossible as we are quickly seeing with the opposition to Trump’s policies. It’s not that they object, on policy grounds, to the very mild reforms that are being proposed. What is at issue is the very concept of the all encompassing world state. To permit reform is to permit questioning and that can never be tolerated.

The only way to break the totalitarian stranglehold may be with a an authoritarian willing to bust down doors and crack some heads. Authoritarianism is only concerned with political power and as long as that is not contested it gives society a certain degree of liberty. You can still have judges falling out of helicopters as we saw with Pinochet, but the people can still go about their lives, free from the hectoring of secular fanatics living off the tax payers. Trump ordering the execution of the 9th Circuit is not ideal, but it beats the hell out of being ruled by angry lunatics from San Francisco.

The main argument against personal rule is that the person eventually dies. Then you have to hope the next guy is not crazy or dangerous. That’s also an upside to authoritarianism. Trump is not going to live forever. What follows is not likely to be another authoritarian. Pinochet eventually gave way to a form of self-government. The reason Chile did not suffer the same fate as Venezuela or Argentina is that Pinochet had most of the secular fanatics shot and tossed into a pit. As a result, Chile came out of the other end of the Pinochet years looking pretty good.

America is headed for a bad end unless things change quickly and radically. The suicide cult that has control of our society is not going to stop until we’re all dead. At some point, you have to use every means necessary to prevent a catastrophe. If that means Lindsay Graham winds up in pit covered in lime, so be it. If Bill Kristol has to write his tantrums from exile in Israel, I can live with that. In order to have a world run by Senator Ranse Stoddard, you first need a Tom Doniphon to do the dirty work of clearing out  Liberty Valance.

Stoddard was a weenie. If Doniphon was smarter, he’d have shot Valance AND Stoddard.

Al from da Nort
Guest
Au Contraire, to win all Doniphon wouldn’t have had to shoot Stoddard too. Since it was likely that the wounded Stoddard would miss, all he had to do was let Valence shoot Stoddard first and then fire second or so later and kill Valence. Shooting too late could even have been an accident of timing, certainly would have looked like one. No jury would have convicted him for bushwhacking an obvious menace to public order who was then in the act of murdering a wounded man, etc., etc. As a result, Doniphon would likely have had Hallie to wife and… Read more »

“No jury would have convicted…” But the theme of the whole show was that until Valance was killed and Stoddard’s gang of eunuchs took over, there WAS no law except that created at the point of a gun. To quote from the theme song. So, Tommy, my man, shoot Valance, then Stoddard, take the chick out to your ranch, and live happily ever after.

The End.

can’t agree here, jd. Stoddard had 2 giant brass ones and a spine of titanium. We need such men just as we needed a Lincoln or an Eisenhower. Rightly or no, i always saw the Stoddard-Doniphan pair as a Lincoln-Grant, Lee-Jackson or Ike-Patton pair. The one has strengths that the other doesn’t, but needs.

It took Doniphan to kill Valance, but it took Stoddard to be a hero for doing so and get away with it.

Pretty hard to believe, right? Stands to reason all the fake news, fake memes, crisis as a means and the desperate use of false flag operations like anti-fa hired “rioters” going on, is a two pronged strategy of tactics implemented to distract from the truth and to hopefully undermine President Trump’s legitimacy in order to retain the power which would cover up what these people truly are and the things they are doing and have done to us and our country.

It doesn’t seem so hard to believe. The scale and scope of the reign of influence, corruption and treason revealed by the hour of these people alone is mind blowing. Look at the Roman empire at the height of it hedonism and degradation. Mao, Stalin. Marxists bath in the blood and suffering of their enemies. Nothing sacred but there to be no limits on their power. Using children as sex slaves, ritualistic canibalism, torture and murdering children, recording it to prove how much power they have, what is more powerful than doing that to children.

That is not such a bad thing either. Because us dirt people become manifest in our righteousness and our legitimacy.

The Jews who actually believe that the Torah, the prophets and the Psalms are the inspired word of God are descendants of the ancient Hebrews to whom the Lord God revealed Himself, and through whom our Messiah, Jesus, came to the earth.

You can’t legitimately start throwing people out of helicopters or dumping them into pits without first exhausting all the other options. I’ve always felt that one of the vital keys to the American Revolution – was the militia men who stood on Lexington Common didn’t just start shooting wildly at the British when they showed up. They were ordered to disperse – and were in the process of doing so – when the shot rang out. Some of the militia men were shot – so they shot back. From then on – it was a war – and the Brits… Read more »

Someone very wisely noted recently (it even might have been Zman) that people are realizing elections no longer change anything — anything substantial.

Mitch McConnell can vanish and never be missed ever again. However if having his personal residence mobbed by SJW goons can’t wake him from his Cloud Privilege slumber, he deserves what’s coming.

I am not so sure that one can truthfully say that elections don’t change anything. Trump’s election changes everything. We have opened a door and walked into a new place, and there is no going back now, no matter how Trump’s tenure turns out. Until last November ninth, I, too, believed that elections changed nothing. What I have come to realize is that elections where the choices are all representatives of the powers that be, almost all of the elections, do change nothing. Very occasionally, an outside candidate forces his way into the game and everything changes. These are the… Read more »

True enough; the real question is has anything *substantial* changed. Only time will tell. Trump can rewrite his EO or issue fifty more; the Cathedral’s bottomless supply of lawfare soldiers will crush every one in court. All we suggest is Trump pay as little attention to court rulings as Jackson did, or Obama — which is to say, obey most of the time. Trump needn’t defy all or even most judges, just a crucial few. This is less lawless than it appears, especially when it is Robart who is defying plenary executive prerogatives of the president.

That even half of his own family would be eligible for deportation under Trump’s EO. Over the years, penalties for fraudulent use of SSN have been lessened as the law was somewhat de-fanged in order to accommodate illegal immigrants’ needs in taking U.S. jobs. The effect being a U.S. citizen who commits SSN fraud would be prosecuted and… Read more »

Good comment. I think a useful first step would be to expand the “press pool” to greatly marginalize the Government Media.

I don’t see much evidence of it in the behavior of the left. You could argue that the systematic elimination of shame is part of the progressive vision.

Yeah, Pyrrhic victory for the 9th circuit. There will be no tears shed when it is carved up. Also, Trump has been given an early example of why appointing good judges to these courts matter. He has a LOT of appointments to make. I also think because of the 9th, a LOT of folks would agree to new limits of term for Federal Judges. Trump knows how to learn from setbacks. None of this drama will have been wasted.

Agree. I see Trump following the process as far as he can, spelling out very clearly for the Persuadeables that he’s all out of options. Are helicopters coming? That’s up to the Left/Deep State, but I’d give Trump 12-18mos before he sees that as a valid option.

I posted this on Kakistocracy this morning. It’s relevant to this post too: __________________________ The solution to the issue of federal judges acting as philosopher-kings is to pare back the subject matter jurisdiction of the lower federal courts to hear questions arising under the constitution. Full stop. The US Supreme Court is established by Article III of the constitution, and it’s jurisdictional scope is set forth therein. Neither the executive nor the legislative branch can change this. By contrast, while the constitution authorizes the creation of lower (i.e., district and appellate) courts, there is no *requirement* in the constitution to… Read more »

Guest

With respect, there really is no practical way to remove funding from the 9th Circuit. And federal judges have immunity from personal lawsuits for their acts on the bench. These are not viable solutions. Nor are doxxing or killing federal judges.

At the very least we need to eliminate the privileges of Senatorial Courtesy and the Blue Slip process. Judge Robart is on the bench because Democratic Senator Patty Murray recommended him and the Bush Administration acquiesced. This needs to stop.

Guest
Guest
The 9th Circuit is a federal court circuit. It is funded by the federal government. The problem is not the 9th Circuit, per se. The problem is that the 9th Circuit is stacked with liberal, activist judges. This is not accidental. Rather, it is a direct result of Senatorial Courtesy and the Blue Slip process referenced above. Most of the district courts in the 9th Circuit are in the populated areas of the West Coast. Accordingly, the Senators of CA, OR, and WA get have a vastly disproportionate influence on the appointment of district court judges in the 9th Circuit.… Read more »

True to some extent. But they can be Impeached. It may just start to become a remedy, that Impeachment as a weapon of rule of law’s time has come. Franklin was brilliant when he proposed Impeach instead of physical assassination as a constitutional republic’s remedy to treasonous politicians and executives. He felt Impeachment was a form of personal Assassination very effective because of the potential message inherent in such action to remove usurpers and conspiracies of treason from government. Lord knows there is no shortage of usurpation and treason.

When the judiciary has fabricated jurisdiction over a matter (there was neither standing nor jurisdiction in the 9th circuit case), my opinion as a former Federal litigator is that the President has every right to point that out and treat the Order as null and void. Andy Jackson and Lincoln did it in far less egregious cases….

I thought the same as you. The only thing I have thought of is; he is using this to his advantage. He could have told them to pound sand and he didn’t recognize their authority to even hear the case ( either Federal Court). BUT in allowing this to unfold… a lot of folks are stepping across the line and I figure, the administration is learning from this … taking notes, and building public consciousness to a clearly out of control progressive movement and wacky judges.
