After Trump Shows Off His Support . . . The Unfeeling Elite Show They Don’t Know Anything About Unifying Nation

January 10, 2021 Frontpage No Comments


As a new year arrives, people often make predictions for the coming 12 months, and resolutions about being better.
Making credible predictions became very easy after the events of Wednesday, January 6, in Washington, D.C., while resolutions to be better contrasted against a worsening existence nationally.
Predictions apparently very likely to come true were that the fractured political system would break even more as corporate, tech, and media billionaires kept trying to ram through their complete political takeover with marionette pro-Beijing Democrat Joe Biden and his handlers.
This was accentuated with the suspiciously contrived narrow victories of two new radical left-wing Democrat U.S. senators from Georgia in January 5 runoff elections, giving the Democrats crucial new power on Capitol Hill.
And resolutions to become better looked quite unlikely as the billionaires refused to learn a thing about how their intransigence led to severe current social stresses.
Since early last year their governmental minions across the nation had grown used to ordering Americans how to live every aspect of their lives, and what was or wasn’t necessary for them. Would they start ordering stronger lockdowns with spurious claims of “national security”?
As unrest swept over Capitol Hill on January 6, Donald Trump quickly was blamed, as he had been blamed falsely for about everything for four years. But other people deserved criticism.
Dominant media had so discredited themselves that many people felt no compunction in immediately rejecting the claims in so-called news reports: If The Washington Post or New York Times says so, it’s a lie. On January 7, the top of page one of the Times falsely screamed, “TRUMP INCITES MOB.”
In addition, the elite seemed to believe that if only they could even further suppress Trump-supporting conservatives, the battle would be over. However, that would be like thinking draining some ocean water into a gallon container will sap a tsunami.
Back in December the cowardly U.S. Supreme Court may have thought it was letting itself off the hook by refusing even to consider the challenge by the state of Texas to the “illegal and unconstitutional” manner in which four states, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, conducted their November elections. The result was to deny vital Electoral College votes to President Trump.
A December 11 news release from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office noted that Texas was joined by nearly half of the states of the Union in its challenge. It was headlined: “A.G. Paxton: U.S. Supreme Court refuses to determine the integrity of the 2020 election.”
Chief Justice John Roberts’ court is hardly the first to do injustice on behalf of the powerful. Too bad Roberts and his kindred didn’t choose the courage of becoming a reformed judiciary.
A squirming Roberts no doubt was aware that leftists raise holy, hot heck when they don’t get their way. But the other side of the political spectrum can’t be expected to resign itself to being trampled upon forever.
The conservative movement is, and has to be, more than one man. But at the present moment, Donald Trump has shown a special staunchness and capability to stand up for and advance its ideals. That’s why he developed a unique following — tens of millions of people deeply distressed at seeing him being deprived of deserved re-election by massive fraud.
This article was written overnight on January 6-7, with further facts likely still to emerge about the January 6 events, but speculation was occurring on when and if the breaking point would arrive for America’s oppressed majority, too long subjected to the elite’s whims.
Did that point happen on January 6 at the Capitol with the fatal shooting by a government law officer of a Trump-supporting military veteran identified as Ashli Babbitt? He reportedly shot her through a door with a glass window. Photos of her before the shooting showed a smiling, pleasant-looking woman, not a drug-addled type more likely at a leftist arson celebration.
On January 6 a massive rally gathered in the cold of the nation’s capital to support Trump against the elite’s plans to oust him. Among items in his speech lasting a bit over an hour to hundreds of thousands of ralliers, Trump again factually recited some of the ways fraudsters stole the election — although dominant media continued to insist his facts were “false.”
After the disorders on Capitol Hill, insensate U.S. senators began voting peremptorily to dismiss factual challenges of fraudulent balloting that was manufactured to give Biden the win.
Earlier in the day, the Just the News website summarized some findings of fraud in this sub-headline: “The storyline that voting irregularities claims are ‘baseless’ is debunked by well-documented evidence from courts, state officials, and affidavits. That’s why large numbers of state legislators are raising red flags.”
A reporter for the Right Side Broadcasting Network estimating the rally attendance said 300,000 people — or it could be a million, she said. Typically, various other media reports merely said “thousands.”
After Trump’s talk, ralliers proceeded as planned to march to the Capitol building to witness to the necessity of an accurate election. At least some hundreds of participants went on into the Capitol — and at least some of them believed they had every right to enter this public building. Trump said he knew his supporters would march peacefully.
A news site headquartered in the nation’s capital reported on January 6: “‘I thought we would be able to peacefully enter,’ a protester who traveled from Texas told the Washington Examiner. ‘I didn’t know we’d be prevented from entering.’
“The protester from Texas said the throng at first acted peacefully, but disorder escalated when Capitol Police moved to prevent them from mounting the East Front stairs and entering through the center door,” the Examiner added.
Talk-radio host Mark Levin asked, “What kind of idiots storm the Capitol building . . . and think they’re achieving anything,” aside from giving talking points to dominant media?
The Wanderer asked conservative Catholic Mary Ann Kreitzer, who runs the Virginia-based Les Femmes – The Truth blog, for her reaction to the protests. She replied on January 6: “Watching the rally with protesters storming the Capitol, I immediately thought of the uprising in the Vendee during the French Revolution.
“For years the left has engaged in a reign of terror against the citizens of this country, whom they label ‘deplorables.’ They’ve championed the extermination of our rights and the literal extermination of our babies,” Kreitzer said. “They rejoice in the modern ‘guillotine’ at Planned Parenthood that rips off the heads of babies as well as their limbs.
“And now these same leftists, who called Antifa and BLM riots love fests and street parties, are quick to condemn protesters entering their own sacred turf,” she said, adding:
“At the same time, I can’t help wondering whether this was a false-flag operation to discredit President Trump and his supporters. It was way too easy for the protesters to get into the Capitol. If the majority really were Trump supporters, I wish they had fallen to their knees and started praying the rosary and singing songs of praise to our God.
“I fear what happened is just the beginning of a new Civil War,” Kreitzer said. “How it will play out I have no idea, but those who truly love God and our country must devote themselves with zeal to prayer and penance. The protests just give the left an excuse for more draconian attacks on the people.
“The Republican army of the French Revolution had a policy of extermination for the people of the Vendee,” she said. “Many leftists have already begun forming their enemy lists and talking about how they will wreak revenge on their opponents. The uprising is coming as Trump said, ‘Our country has had enough. We will not take it anymore.’
“But the answer is never violence, it’s turning to God in prayer and penance. May Our Lady of Mercy intercede for us,” she said.

A Tipping Point

Earlier on January 6, blogger Fr. John Zuhlsdorf ( posted, “Today feels like a tipping point. . . . We are not at the end of what is in store for us, I’m afraid.”
Zuhlsdorf wrote: “I’ve had a growing sense of unrest for weeks about this day. I cannot help but think that what is going on now is fueled in part by a rise in demonic activity. That’s why I’ve often recited Ch. 3 of Title XI in the Rituale Romanum also for protection from demonic action surrounding the certification of the vote. I didn’t know what was on the horizon exactly, but I suspected something bad was coming.”
Concerned about the arrival of a one-party system aided by corporatists’ power, Zuhlsdorf wrote:
“The divisions in our country and in the Church herself are so sharp, so broad, that it is hard to imagine what sort of event might heal the divides. I can only imagine that it would be either the manifestation of an amazing miracle (e.g., I ask God daily for the miraculous elimination of the virus) or a disaster of some kind so great that it overcomes the ongoing atomization.”
Radio host Todd Herman, filling in on the Rush Limbaugh program on January 6, noted that the violent leftist Antifa group had communicated internally that some of its members would wear Trump gear and infiltrate pro-Trump protesters. Zuhlsdorf mentioned a similar concern, citing a January 6 report at The Washington Times.
Later, on the evening of January 6, Zuhlsdorf posted comments by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson noting that the fatally shot Ashli Babbitt “bore no resemblance to the angry children we have seen wrecking our cities in recent months — pasty, entitled nihilists dressed in black, setting fires and spray-painting slogans on statues. She looked pretty much like everyone else.”
So why was she in the Capitol? “As long as people sincerely believe they can change things by voting, they stay calm,” Zuhlsdorf quoted Carlson. “They don’t burst into the House chamber. They talk and they organize and they vote.
“But the opposite is also true if people begin to believe that their democracy is fraudulent, that voting is a charade, that the system is rigged and it’s run in secret by a small group of powerful, dishonest people who are acting in their own interests. Then, God knows what could happen,” the Fox commentator said.
An illegitimate leadership quickly seeks to crack down on its dissenting population instead of trying to make the situation better, Carlson said. If they don’t bother to learn a thing from their “citizens storming your Capitol building, then you’re a fool, you lack wisdom and self-awareness, and you have no place running a country. We got to this sad, chaotic day for a reason.”

Left-Wing Riots

In a strong example of tech giants imagining that they control reality, Facebook said it would strip off all photos and videos of the Capitol disturbances, the Federalist website reported as it also said: “No such widespread censorship was afforded to the left-wing riots erupting last year, killing at least 30 people, while reporters stood in front of burning blazes and characterized the events as ‘peaceful protests’.”
The Washington Examiner reported on January 6 that conservative commentator Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service agent, contrasted media horror at the Capitol demonstration with how dominant media chuckled last year when left-wing violence outside the White House grew so serious that the Secret Service took the president to a bunker.
“ ‘They felt like there was a chance the White House could fall that night,’ Bongino said of the Secret Service,” the Examiner reported. “ ‘Where was the media the next day? They were making fun of President Trump for being evacuated by his security detail, not his choice, into the bunker.
“That was their narrative the next day. Where were the mass condemnations there? Where was that? The answer is it wasn’t there. It became an opportunity to take out Trump,” Bongino was quoted.

Hey, fellow Catholics -

Remember the McCarrick Report?

Remember McCarrick?

Remember the sex-abuse coverups?

Remember being locked out of Mass for months?

Remember how abortion was essential, but Mass was "unessential"?

Remember our silent bishops?


Heckuva job, @USCCB!

We will be leaving this platform soon! Censoring the truth is a highway to hell. Join us at #Parler. Our handle is @thewanderernewspaper

What have we learned in the last couple of months? One thing for sure - the Swamp is alive and well and bigger than ever!

And just like that, we’ve forgotten that a voting machine was hacked into live in a Georgia senate hearing.

Welcome to Amerika! Pray that when we are put to the test in the days ahead that we stand with Him and not against Him. God help us!
