Votes on two existential issues over the weekend, FISA and continuing aid for forever wars, inclusive of Ukraine, have been declared by a manic corporate media to completely vindicate the present Washington consensus.  It ain’t necessarily so, as they say.  As each battle in which these folks expose themselves and receive gushing praise from the senile Joe Biden takes place, popular support for doing the exact opposite of whatever they have done, explodes in an American population which despises them. Really, as Franklin Roosevelt famously declared, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.  But, that is what the portrayals of these alleged smashing regime victories are intended to inculcate.

Two posts on the Promethean PAC site address this.  The first is a Pledge, which the PAC says it will be circulating to every organized political formation in the country that is sane, and to individual citizens and people who feel they are not at all represented by Washington, D.C.  It calls for the unequivocal election of Donald Trump and his seating as president irrespective of the outcome of the bogus criminal charges which the Biden regime has concocted.  The PAC asks that you sign it, and as important, that you circulate it. Be Promethean!

The second post is a report provided to one of the PAC’s authors about the revolt in the Republican Party which just occurred in Washington State.  In Washington State!  Now that is something.  In that nest of late Empire insanity, an African American veteran and Trump supporter, Semi Bird, defeated the Republican establishment’s candidate, Dave Reichert, for the Republican Party endorsement for governor.  Something truly, truly powerful is at play now within the land.  It reminds us of Shelley’s famous last lines from the Masque of Anarchy:

Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number,
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you –
Ye are many – they are few.
The Masque of Anarchy by Percy Bysshe Shelley - Scottish Poetry Library
As I lay asleep in Italy There came a voice from over the Sea And with great power it forth led me To walk in the visions of Poesy.
