Loyal to Leviathan

On Independence Day we honor and revere the Declaration of Independence - The heart of the American experience and touchstone for everything we hold dear. The cornerstone and foundation of our constitution upon which every addition is built (or aught to be) and every law, including the constitution itself, must be measured

But here at the KOTCB blog we want to call out the Loyalist who fought hammer and tong AGAINST independence. Oh yes, they did and when they lost after 8 years of bloody conflict a bunch of them left the States - to Canada, to the West Indies, back to England, but most of them stayed and made trouble - their progeny are still here making trouble today.

The thing we must always remember is that there were A LOT of citizens in 1776 who didn't buy off on the ideas contained in the DoI and there are A LOT (maybe more) who don't buy it today.

Here's a short paper outlining the loyalist breakdown. Common mythology breaks it down 30% Loyalist and 70% Patriot, but simply looking at our contemporary daily experience when know those numbers are not true.
"Historian Robert Calhoon wrote concerning the proportion of loyalists and rebels: 
Historians' best estimates put the proportion of adult white male loyalists somewhere between 15 and 20 percent. Approximately half the colonists of European ancestry tried to avoid involvement in the struggle — some of them deliberate pacifists, others recent emigrants, and many more simple apolitical folk. The patriots received active support from perhaps 40 to 45 percent of the white populace, and at most no more than a bare majority."
Frankly, I don't even believe Robert Calhoon's numbers. My estimate is 30% Loyalist located primarily in coastal cities 50% simple apolitical folk and 20% Patriot. About the same percentages we see on our political landscape today.

So this is for all you modern day Loyalists who would crush the spirit of Liberty - consider yourselves tarred and feathered (virtually) - you deserve it.

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.
