The Twilight Zone

It is another dimension—a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.” Rod Serling’s voice coupled with the eerie background music usually sends tingles up my spine.


If you feel like you’re living in another dimension, another realm of existence, you’re not alone. These days, most rational, reasonable people feel exactly the same way as you. Somewhere along the way, we have entered into that alternate universe where everything is completely upside down. We are acting like the breach of the Capital last Wednesday was the greatest offense in the history of this country. Make no mistake, it was wrong and never should have happened. The people who breached the capital should all have been arrested. That’s obvious. That’s a fact.


Here are some other facts; this past summer and fall, the United States experienced 157 straight days of riots in our major cities, stores were looted, buildings burned to the ground, people were killed, police stations were taken over, sections of cities were seized. Democrat governors and mayors told the police to stand down and let it happen. The national guard was not called in while this death and destruction occurred for months. Leaders of one political party encouraged and even supported these riots. Our Vice-President elect paid the bail of rioters so they could return to rioting. There was no outrage by liberals or Democrats about this. None of the death, destruction, seizing of public institutions was seen as a threat.


We have cities in our country which have deemed themselves as “sanctuary cities”. They are havens, “sanctuaries” for illegal immigrants to live without fear of arrest or deportation regardless of the crimes they committed. Drug dealers, rapist, murderers live in these sanctuary cities with impunity, no fear of being arrested. MS-13 gang members cross our border, set up shop in our major cities, commit violent crimes and murders, and they are allowed to do all that. They are not even on our radar screen. No one seems to care. The liberals and the Democrats in this country believe sanctuary cities are good things for our country.


Across the globe in cities like Paris, London, Berlin, and Brussels, Muslim immigrants have taken over entire sections of these cities, and deem them “no go zones”, meaning if a non-Muslim enters these sections of town, there’s a good chance they won’t get out alive. The citizens of those cities simply accept this like its business as usual.


In America, there is video evidence that similar “no go zones” exist in states, such as, Alaska, California, New York, Texas, Michigan, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. No one says a word. No seems to care. No one is doing anything about it. I guess this is the new normal.


80,000 people die every year from drug overdoses in our country. Hundreds of billions of dollars of drugs are smuggled across our southern border. China is the leading importer of the deadliest of all drugs, fentanyl, into our country. No one cares. There is no outrage. The new administration is going make our borders wide open again. They are going to climb back in bed with China. No one seems to be concerned about any of this.


China steals our intellectual property, manipulates its currency, uses unfair and unethical trade practices, destroys our manufacturing sectors with their slave labor, embeds spies into the highest levels of our government, business community and academia, and our President elect says that the Chinese Communists “are not bad folks,... They’re not competition for us.” Joe has also said, “China is not our enemy. We want to see China rise.” And that “a rising China is a … positive ­development not only for China, but for America.”

China where the deadly Covid-19 virus originated (the 4th pandemic from China in the last 20 years), who lied about the virus’ origin, lied about its virulence, lied about its deadliness, who hoarded and extorted the PPEs, is our friend? To quote Joe, “c’mon man”. But no one who is about to take power seems very concerned about the threat of China, the evil of China? No one. Pay no attention to China. They are our friends.


Companies like Nike, Apple, Abercrombie & Fitch, Adidas, Gap, Calvin Klein, H&M, L.L.Bean, Lacoste, all use Chinese slave labor in the manufacturing of their products. There is no outrage, no boycott of their products made with slave labor. No one cares. Just as long as our clothes, shoes, and consumer products are cheap, all is good with the world.


Facebook, Twitter, Google, Amazon and many more tech companies are censoring and banning free political speech in our country. The liberals and the Democrats are cheering this move. American citizens are being fired from their jobs and cancelled if they hold the “wrong” political views. Meanwhile, Rep Ilian Ohmar tweets support for terrorist groups and she is not banned or censored. This is accepted like it’s good for our country.


Governors and mayors shut down businesses, restaurants, schools, churches and synagogues for months on end, causing catastrophic damage to the economy, destroying people’s lives and livelihoods, driving up suicides and overdoses. A large portion of people in this country not only accepted this, they thought it was the best thing to do.


But, a small percentage of Donald Trump supporters at a rally on Wednesday breached the capital for about 45 minutes, and the country comes to a screeching halt. It is treated like the greatest threat our country has ever faced. The level of outrage has been off the charts. But when hundreds of Democrats breached the capital in 2018, pounding on the Senate Chambers doors during the Kavanaugh hearings, we were told they were speaking truth to power.


We are truly living in bizarro world where, up is down, down is up, wrong is right and right is wrong. What we see with our eyes, we are told is not what is. Nothing makes sense.


The Democrats are so expert at gaslighting that they make George Westinghouse look like a kid playing with matches. We can never take anything that a Democrat says on face value. Nine times out of ten, you are either being gaslighted or outright lied to.


If you don’t believe me, never forget that Democrats told us that 157 straight days of riots where 30 people were killed, stores looted, buildings burned to the ground, cities destroyed were “peaceful protests”, and a 45-minute breech of the capital was the greatest insurrection our country has ever seen.
