We’ll See What The States Are Made Of Now

BY Herschel Smith
2 weeks, 4 days ago

Well, well, well.

You’ve all heard the claptrap from the pretender president.  I won’t repeat it here.

So Governor Henry McMaster (who recently approved open carry in South Carolina, to my approval), said “We will fight Biden to the gates of hell to protect liberty.”

So have other governors, mostly.  Texas is in the mix.  Idaho … eh, not so much.  You folks there in Idaho have a problem on your hands.  Northern redoubt … maybe not so much.  Do something to impress me, like voting for a good man for governor.

So let’s see how this all pans out.  It will be interesting, yes?

    Unfortunately, I don’t expect much from Utah’s governor either.

    One of the, supposedly, “most conservative” states in the nation always elects governors who are more-than-willing to bend over for the federal government.

    Regardless, I won’t be getting the jab, even if it costs me my job.

    I’ve always appreciated the years I’ve lived in Texas. Never have I been happier about being here than now.

    Wait…no preemptive surrender? Are we sure that guy is really a Republican?

    Yeah, talk is cheap (especially from GOP politicians), we’ll see what their actions are.

    Voting is like putting a drag-chute on Little Boy.

    The threat of withholding federal funds only works as long as there are federal funds worth anything to withhold. The economic house of cards that has been built tall is swaying from the wind of overwhelming federal debt.
    States may as well get the party started to survive without income from the broken and corrupt national government.

    @MN Steel Thank you. Once I wipe up the coffee that one will carry me through the weekend better than a Flounder quote from “Animal House.”

    The left themselves an ‘out’ in the last line of Section 1 of the puppeteer’s EO.
    Billable hours will go ‘brrrrr’.

    Does the tenth amendment still exist? (sarc)
    The economy is already wiped out which is why the globalists are moving so quickly.
    The brilliant spring 2020 lockdown plan and the BRICS nations will finish off the dollar for good and no amount of printing presses or woke good feelz will stop it.
    Xhou Bai-Den is the perfect face for the end of Chiquitastan.

    All hot air.
    They’ll all do what they’re told eventually.

    Sure glad my wife and I discussed this and started making preparations early this year. We are not getting the jab.. It is much easier to have rational discussions and draw your line in the sand BEFORE the gun is placed to your head. The majority of the sheeple will be like East Berliners before the wall went up or the Jews when Hilary, oops…I meant Hitler took over. They won’t realize they are in a cage until the gate shuts and is locked behind them. History doesn’t repeat. IT IS REPEATING! Hang in there Herschel. The tech fascists will be coming for your site very, very soon.

    @Heywood,

    This web site is not important to me. I can turn by back on it in a second and be just fine. I get nothing from it. Not one penny for my time.

  13. On September 10, 2021 at 11:44 am, Heywood said:

    @Herschel

    That was more for me and the other readers who have been here for years. Your perspective and thoughtful analysis is an oasis in the intellectually barren media landscape. Now more than ever we need independant voices. I am selfish. I like my “Journal” escape…..

  14. On September 10, 2021 at 12:29 pm, Frank Clarke said:

    Executive Orders are instructions from the President to the employees of the Executive Branch. They are NOT instructions to non-employees of the Executive Branch. If they were, we would call them ‘laws’, but Presidents cannot make laws; only Congress can make laws.

    All that’s needed if for one state to file suit (in SCOTUS which has original jurisdiction), and the entire thing blows away, if not for the reason above, then under the provisions of the Tenth amendment.

    I’m not worried.

    Chinese curse: may you live in interesting times.
    Me: I could do with less interesting.
    Joe Biden: Hold my beer.

  16. On September 10, 2021 at 4:06 pm, Ned said:

    Mealy mouthed Biden: “If these governors won’t help.. I’ll use my power as President to get them out of the way.”

    Sounds like civil war.

    @ Herschel

    The remnant that reads this site gets something out of it.

    Our Governor in Idaho is worthless. He just spent the week lying about hospitals being overwhelmed by Covid patients. The not-vaxed covid patients don’t you know. It just ain’t so. Data from all over the world refutes his statements. He just keeps doubling down.

    Brad Little is wholly owned by the medical establishment. They pay him quite well.

  19. On September 11, 2021 at 11:33 am, Steady Steve said:

    All it will take is this and the Arizona audit results for those Governors with a spine to declare fedgov illegitimate. They can, if they have the cojones, order all businesses in the state to send all employee income tax to the state coffers. I believe it would take only a handful of States to bankrupt the US corporation for good.
