From Robert Frost:
He writes about a neighbor buidling a fence between their properties. He asks the neighbor why. Here is what he says about the neighbor’s response:
He only says, ‘Good fences make good neighbors.’
Spring is the mischief in me, and I wonder
If I could put a notion in his head:
‘Why do they make good neighbors? Isn’t it
Where there are cows? But here there are no cows.”
I wonder if Congress has ever read this poem. I would guess there are plenty who have not. After all, it was written by an old white man so it has to be racist and sexist, right?
I’m not writing to debate the value or the meaning of a poem or a poet. As an English teacher, I often had students analyze lines of poetry for deeper meaning than just the words written. However, I was never a fan of analyzing a poem so much that it lost its real meaning. Sometimes what an author said is exactly what he meant.
So, here we are in 2021 and Congress has built a huge fortress behind fences and guards to keep the American people out. They say it is because of the breach of the Capitol on January 6th. But, seriously, that’s bullshit. While that breach might have been frightening to some of them, it was nothing new. The Capitol had been breached before:
- The War of 1812-Okay, I know it was over 200 years ago, but the Capitol was burned down by the British in 1812.
- July 2, 1915 – German professor Eric Muenter exploded a bomb in the reception room of the Senate. He was protesting the U.S. supporting our allies in World War I.
- March 1, 1954 – Puerto Rican nationalists shot 30 rounds from semi-auto pistols from a balcony of the House. They unfurled a Puerto Rican flag and then started shooting at representatives. Many were hurt but no one died. The nationalists were sent to prison but had their life sentences commuted by Jimmy Carter.
- March, 1971 -the radical domestic terror group Weather Underground, protested U.S. military involvement in Laos by exploding a bomb on the ground floor of the Capitol.
- November, 1983- a radical leftist group called Armed Resistance Unit detonated a bomb in the lobby outside Robert Byrd’s office. They were protesting the invasion of Granada.
- July, 1998- two capitol police officers were shot and killed by two men who burst into the Capitol. The motive is undetermined to this day.
What is interesting about these six attacks, some during or directly prior to wartime, is they did not cause the Congress to erect barriers or fences around the complex. But the January 6th breach did. Why? As Frost said in the poem, ” Here there are no cows.” In other words, here there is no threat!
Is there a threat? Certainly, after the peaceful supporters of Trump have been demonized, investigated, harrassed and unfairly arrested in some cases, there is no desire on any of their parts to peacefully march in D.C. much less cause violence. In fact, the only people causing mass violence during marches this past winter were BLM and Antifa, and since the Left doesn’t call that “violence,” the fences are not for them.
I think there is a threat. But it’s not from Trump supporters or even BLM or Antifa. I think the threat is located INSIDE those fences.
Each day of the Biden/Harris/Obama gives us clues to that threat. Sometimes they are subtle, sometimes they are obvious. They have an end game planned, and it will not be good for most of us.
On the first day of the regime, the numerous executive orders gave us an idea of their goals; eliminating oil/coal/natural gas production in this country, thus destroying thousands of jobs and driving energy prices through the roof, opening the border to hundreds of thousands of illegals to drain American economic resources while providing competition for jobs to the citizens who just lost theirs, stripping American women of their ability to compete on a level playing field with each other by allowing transgender “women” to unfairly compete with natural women; and allowing China access to the American power grid, thus destroying our national security. In fact, they seem to be selling our country to China, bit by bit.
Then there was the targeting of President Trump, his followers, and Conservatives with bogus prosecutions, removal from public forums via Big Tech, threats of impeachment for disagreeing with Democrats, hiding truth with fact checkers, constant propaganda against white Conservatives via the News Media, and elimination of police and military who disagree with Democrat dogma. And, let’s not forget the constant barrage about racism, “White Privilege,” masculine toxicity, and even the possibility of the elimination of the white race as a solution to all the ills of the world.
Hidden under the Covid Cult agenda, the Regime attempted to destroy small businesses, invade the privacy of citizens and restrict their Constitutional freedom with bogus mask and social distancing mandates by overreaching politicians. They effectively turned citizens against each other as they set up snitch hot lines. Now, the implementation of a ” Health ” passport is being investigated to further restrict the rights to travel and live independent lives.
Of course, Democrats try to hide their real end game with the fable of the threat to their lives in the Capitol. After the recommendations of a rabid Castro loving retired general acting as a “security expert,” to keep the safeguards up, Pelosi is in no hurry to change things.
This all helps move them toward the end game goal. With fences up, the Leftists can keep pointing to the myth of the violent, dangerous Trump supporters. Add to that the bogus creation of a “bi-partisan” committee to study the January 6th incident, and you keep that point in front of the American public. ( By the way, is it REALLY bi-partisan if an eleven person committee is comprised of 7 Democrats and 4 Republicans? I don’t think so.) Anyone want to bet on the conclusions of this committee?
Of course our children and grandchildren are part of the plan. Through critical race theory, early sexualization and the 1619 project, Leftists plan to teach our children to be ashamed of themselves, their race, and their country. If they can brainwash our youth, their goal becomes easier to attain.
And let’s not forget the bills presented in Congress, HR 1 and more gun control. HR 1 will remove all safeguards from the voting process. Voters won’t have to be citizens, won’t have to go to the polls, will not have to show I.D. , will not have a “deadline” for their votes to be mailed, and on and on. It guarantees the theft and fraud of all elections going forward. No Conservative candidate will ever have a prayer of winning against the huge Leftist, one party rule, machine. Remember, Joe Biden said in his press conference (either by design or by mistake), that he didn’t think the Republican Party would exist in 2024. Good old Bolshevik style elimination of the opposition!
Gun control will effectively eliminate the right of the private citizen to defend themselves against crime. National registration, bi-yearly mental health certification, insurance requirements, are all nails in the coffin of the Second Amendment. An unarmed citizenry is much easier to control.
It all adds up. The Leftists want to eliminate what America is. If it means purging half of the population, I think they are willing to make it happen.
But, getting back to the fortress. I think it could be a sign of HOPE for America. Why? Because it shows that the Leftists know that the American people will not tolerate this agenda much longer. If they keep running full speed down this path to one party rule and totalitarianism, there will be massive opposition. I think they will not only face opposition from the Conservatives, but many other Americans of all ethnicities, national origins, religions as well. I know there are a lot of scumbags out there who will jump on this agenda with zeal, but I also know there are MILLIONS of good people who will eventually see it for what it is. We just need to find each other and talk to each other.
A real life example is something I heard from a video of a man in California speaking to his community council. Everything had been shut down, and the council was doing nothing to make things better. The man told them ( and I paraphrase), “Things right now are peaceful and we are peaceful people. But, when we can no longer feed our children, provide for ourselves, we will not be peaceful any more. We don’t want violence, but if we have to, we will resort to whatever it takes.”
This man and his fellow citizens have formed a plan to change what is going on. If you go to the website, redwhiteandblueprint.com, you can watch one chapter of their video series for free. ( There is a fee for seeing more.) They are banding together to stop the elitist bureaucrats and keep their freedoms. Maybe the Biden regime and those in the Capitol might want to think about that.
When we all come together, they are going to need a fence, barriers, and a lot more to keep us out. I think Pelosi knows that. After all, she has a wall around her home. She knows what happens when you screw your constituents. Americans don’t do well with Kings and dictators. We tend to want them gone.
And fences? Well, they can be a way to keep the peace between neighbors. But that also requres that you don’t violate your neighbor’s rights.
