Menstrual America has gained the upper hand. Feminized America has been on display in all her undignified inauthenticity, in the crybabies of Congress and in the loud and proud quitting at the 2020 Olympics.

In Menstrual America, medals go to congressmen and cops who wail the loudest when recounting their professional failings on Jan. 6, 2021.

And props are given not to athletes who “bring it” despite the jitters; but to those who crumble and quit, and then crow about the authenticity of it all.

Menstrual America’s rich and famous belong to a fraternity of foolish, showy killjoys. They take a knee anywhere and everywhere, to show the world how gynocentrically great they are.

Speaker Pelosi, of course, is nothing like that; the woman is made of steel. For political effect, though, she lugs around all kinds of crybabies.

One such Pelosi poodle is Adam Kinzinger. The Republican from Illinoi is serving on the January 6th Select Committee at the behest of the speaker.

On Day One of this Democratic happening, Kinzinger denounced Republicans’ attempts to compare the Jan. 6 melee to violence during last summer’s race riots:

“I condemn those riots and the destruction of property that resulted,” Kinzinger whimpered. “But not once did I ever feel that the future of self-governance was threatened like I did on Jan. 6. There is a difference between breaking the law and rejecting the rule of law. Between a crime, even grave crimes, and a coup.”

Kinzinger is correct: There is a difference between a crime and a coup. Crimes against innocent fellow citizens are acts of cowardice; a coup against the State can be heroic–just like the American Revolutionary War was a coup against Britain.

Notwithstanding that Americans no longer live under the rule of law, and are not self-governing in any meaningful way—hardcore libertarians of the Right should take the opposite position to that of Nancy’s Republican poodle, regarding the storming of the Capitol Building, on Jan. 6.

Be they illegal voters, criminal aliens, or just good old vandals, rapists and murderers—the criminal class is now the armed wing of the Democratic Party.

Principled, conservative libertarians will thus distinguish pro-Trump patriots from the armed wing of the Democratic Party: Black Lives Matter, Antifa and other criminal riffraff.

This Democratic militia romped through America, in the summer of 2020, rioting, looting and leveling their countrymen’s businesses, causing billions in damages.

Like locusts, these Democrat cultural revolutionaries descended on their neighbors to menace them in places where the latter shop and socialize, sadistically threatening, and often physically harming innocents, unless they knelt like slaves.

In contrast, the ragtag renegades of the MAGA movement stormed only the seat of power and corruption that is the State. Once!

Yet, in reply to the fact that “entire cities were burned to the ground” by BLM troops (the Democratic Party’s militia), some of the staunchest of conservatives have echoed Kinzinger. “Storming the Capitol building,” many have asserted, unthinkingly, is much worse than “burning down strip malls.”

Wrong!

Like us or not, the radical property-rights libertarian—who does not live inside and off the Beltway—will strongly disagree with the Trump-blaming conservatives.

A certain kind of libertarian, the good kind, distinguishes clearly between those who, like BLM, would trash, loot and level private property—the livelihoods and businesses of private citizens—and between those who would storm the well-padded seats of state power and corruption.

Libertarians who live by the axiom of nonaggression will always prefer the man who proceeds against the State, to the man who destroys private property.

That is because the State is governed by aggression; whereas the institution of private property is largely rooted in peaceful, voluntary transactions between consenting participants.

It’s no secret that rock-ribbed libertarians—as opposed to the lite, fluffy establishment libertarian—view the State, certainly in its current iteration, as a criminal enterprise.

Coupled with the use of COVID-19 as a political cudgel to reflexively fatten State stooges and increase their sphere of influence—the sight of tens of thousands of criminal aliens streaming across the Southern border, by State invitation, funded by the forsaken American taxpayer, must surely cement the status of the United States government as a treacherous entity, having forsaken the legitimate defense of the lives, liberty and property of its citizens.

And, if tempted to argue the theoretical point that the State operates without the consent of the governed, think only of the meaning of the 2020 election:

Upwards of 81 million people, or 51.3 percent of those who voted, not of the people, get to impose their will on more than 74 million, or 46.8 percent of the voters, as well as on the millions who didn’t vote.

Moreover, the winner in an election is certainly not the fictitious entity referred to as “The People,” but rather the representatives of the majority. And while it seems obvious that the minority in a democracy is openly thwarted, the question is, do the elected representatives at least carry out the will of the majority?

No is the answer! In reality, the majority, too, has little say in the business of governance – they’ve merely elected politicians who have been awarded carte blanche to do as they please.

Carte blanche because we are no longer a republic in which central authorities have only limited and clearly delimited powers. Certainly, all the people in the commonwealth are compelled to do as the Permanent State and the new, incoming state dictate.

No! Government governs without the consent of the governed, for the most, and with the backing of often-brutal police powers.

Like Kinzinger, one never Trumpkin conservative at the Spectator whined that he couldn’t tell the difference between the Red Hats and Antifa, decrying that, “They [the Red Hats] were desecrating something they pretend to love.”

The non-statist libertarian has no problem telling the difference.

To us, those “citadels of democracy” mean very little that is good. Loss of life we lament—but the song-and-dance about the Jan. 6 trampling of the Capitol Building we consider overheated.

Our country is not to be equated with the Capitol.

  1. “Storming the Capitol building,” many have asserted, unthinkingly, is much worse than “burning down strip malls.”

    Wrong!

    Amen. Just this afternoon I drove my boys down East Lake Street in Minneapolis, the epicenter of the worldwide riots.

    Actually, one of the worst-hit targets was the state’s– the Third Precinct station house. (Which was built after Sept. 11th, 2001. So why was it so easy to destroy?) However, the local property owners are angry at the police not for what they did, but for what they didn’t– their job. Protecting that property.

    Comically, our favorite store in the riot zone, Ingebretsen’s, was hardly touched and is now celebrating its centennial on the street. Rioters broke in, only to see Viking troll dolls, recipe books, and delicacies like rømmegrøt and lutefisk. They quickly went elsewhere to loot!

    “Now” you/we are realizing this? You mention,murderers,rapists and vandals,
    but not vulture capitalists,politicians,tech monopolies,newspapers,or religious
    rinos like Willard Romney,McCain,Bush,Cheney,Falwell,or Billy Graham etc.?
    What about the Adelsons,Koch brothers and the all seeing vicar,the pope?

    Ours, here in America, are certainly corrupt but highly competent in their corrupt practices. This degeneracy is continuing to destroy our once-great Nation.

  7. Emslander says:

    I’m sentimentally attached to the symbols of our Republic; the Capitol building, the White House, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Monument and a few others there in D.C., but I have no sentimental attachment to the idiots who take up temporary occupation of those physical symbols.

    I once worked in the Capitol. I remember protestors walking through the halls outside our offices, making racket and invading the reception areas, often angrily, over some perceived grievance. Farmers once drove their tractors in the thousands into D.C. and all over the Capitol lawns, then came into the building to loudly protest their latest economic straits.

    I went back there a couple of years ago and I was shocked by the fortress now protecting those so-called representatives of the people from the people. I was surprised that anyone got near the floors of Congress on January 6. Anyone familiar with the protective environment would have to conclude that those who got in were allowed in for some reason.

    I think Jefferson said that a good revolution every few years would be good for the USA. He must have foreseen that some of those revolutions would do violence to the tyrants.

  8. Men with buffalo horns and sweat pants (but no spear) are (gasp) so frightening to first graders it will never be purged from memory. But no pictures of that women bleeding out on the floor after being shot by??? Show the first graders that. That little carnival is being conflated with treason most foul. For the most part those people liked their country but not so much its politicians.

    The old lady emigrated to America of her own free will, clutching the tail of her spouse who had obtained a work visa. If she does not like what is happening in America, who is preventing her from leaving? The old lady moreover is a hypocrite. One can certainly make the case that democracy is flawed if 51.3 percent imposes its will on the rest. But Trump won by even less margin in 2016 and the old lady did not complain then and her posts from those years indicates she was a hysterical Trumpist ranting MAGA, MAGA, MAGA, blah blah blah, to the point of tedium.
    The defeat of the mob of smellysocks who attempted to launch a coup was a triumph of American institutions and democracy. No doubt this mob of simpletons were guided by more sinister forces lurking in the shadows . These should be hunted down and tried for treason and if found guilty, throw away the keys.

    We have to speak metaphorically here, because that is the only way that menstrual America has been taught to think in all their “studies” classes. What happened here is that a bunch of manspreading misogynist Trump supporters violated the capital building the same way a southern slave owner would violate their beautiful and sacred negro slaves.

    WTF is this self-governance Kinzinger speaks of…we haven’t had anything like that for a hundred years.

    Absolutely correct…I would hope that when the overthrow of the Deep State does happen…those involved are more zealous…and successful.

  12. BobPhD says:

    Everything that has happened so far is not real. Everything was built on lies meaning, they know we can defeat them. It is necessary for them to continue lying to keep people hoping. There is no hope people. You either attack now or forever be enslaved. They are already killing people. They will only accelerate the JABS and blame the deaths on ever new and ongoing “”variants.””

  16. I thought the Capitol belonged to the People who should be allowed in any time to address their representatives. When people are murdered by the govt. without redress and people who are guilty of no more than disorderly conduct are incarcerated as terrorists, what does it tell us? That the denizens of the Capitol are deathly afraid of the People. They are cowards clinging desperately to their prestige and pelf. The last thing they think about is preserving self-government,

  17. apparently the author is now post-menstrual. That weird S&M get-up (choker, pull-me-down blouse, etc.) from a couple weeks ago was probably her last fling. As for

    the 6 Jan. Trumpchumps, however much they’re being punished,

    it isn’t enough.

    It’s easy to belittle ‘woman’ today. They are rather pathetic but what of those who lived 150+ years ago. To me they were the stronger sex. They endured genuine ‘patriarchy’, spent their early years giving birth ( often a lethal experience), had no ‘career’ opportunities at all and because nature made them strong they had to endure it all and carry on. Children died, husbands died (or abandoned them) and if they cried it made no difference at all but they still toiled on. Sitting in a primitive dwelling, sewing by candlelight, allocating the meagre family foodstuffs and earning the love of her surviving children!

    One might say ‘strong women’ gave rise to strong peoples and so, today, we are lost because our womenfolk have truly become the ‘weaker sex’.

  19. @Clyde Wilson

    Great to receive the wise words of Dr Clyde Wilson. How does someone like Adam Kinzinger live with himself? I guess to put it the way ilana did in another column, some major party gave this guy a platform from which to speak & a lot of people voted for the guy, to put him where he is. Is someone going to run a challenge against him within his own party next year. He is, after all, a Republican, and presumably vulnerable. I live in a safe left-Dem district, and have no say, but presumably Kinzinger should have to work for his incumbency. On the other hand, he is an Illinois Republican, so he probably has a certain Legacy of Lincoln protection. Never trust the GOP in the long run.

    Menstrual America is another great ilana coinage, and should go viral. Although, men might want to use the term “Manstrual,” or “manstruation” that one of her Twitter followers coined. https://twitter.com/lysandr_spooner/status/1420855541350473731?s=21

  20. Ultimately the Special Olympics and the ordinary Olympics need to merge into one inclusive and equitable competition. It’s only able-ism that keeps people thinking everyone who competes internationally should be an elite athlete. We want to celebrate all athleticism regardless of ability at the Olympics, not just prioritize white males who had the leisure (because of exploiting black and brown labor) to indulge their privilege by practicing in advance for years and years with coaches and proper nutrition.

    Tell me that’s not going to be the story going into 2024.

  21. @Emslander

    Here’s two famous Jefferson quotes: 1) “The Tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
    2) Commenting on Shays Rebellion, TJ remarked: “God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. Let them take arms.”

    When was this country’s last major rebellion which attempted to topple government? (Actually that was a noble attempt at secession). Was it the War for Southern Independence that tyrant Lincoln crushed?
    In any case it’s useless to hope that things will change for the better if we get a republican congress after the 2022 mid-terms. Will there be anything still left of our evaporating freedoms awaiting the return of Trump in 2024? (I, for one, don’t want him back!)

    Where is a leader of Thomas Jefferson’s stature when we so desperately need him? Such men, I fear, are not made anymore. Btw, terrific column Ilana!

  22. Kinzinger is correct: There is a difference between a crime and a coup. Crimes against innocent fellow citizens are acts of cowardice; a coup against the State can be heroic

    Jan. 6 wasn’t an attempt at “coup” by any stretch. They wanted Congress to respect the law and Constitution as they stand, and to follow and enforce them.

    Perhaps a coup would have been justified, but that is not what the protestors were after.

    –just like the American Revolutionary War was a coup against Britain.

    George III reigned for 37 years after the Treaty of Paris, and succeeded by not one, but two dissolute sons. Some “coup”.
