Radical Agenda S06E071 – Convicts

One of my all time favorite movie lines comes from the first Die Hard movie, with Bruce Willis, and it isn’t “Yipee Ki-yay”.

In the movie, action hero cop John McClain finds himself in a hostage situation. His wife is at the mercy of some thieves who are trying to make their emptying of a high end safe look like a terrorist incident, so as to cover their true motives.

McClain manages to avoid detection and hide elsewhere in the building. He tries to notify police, but they think he is making a prank call. Eventually one police car shows up to see if anything is going on, but the crooks have disguised themselves as security for the building and assure him that all is well. As the officer begins to depart the scene, having informed the dispatcher that nothing is going on at Nakatomi Plaza, John McClain opens fire on his car.

McClain was not trying to kill the officer, of course. He doesn’t mind killing people, and he is actually pretty good at it. But John is a good guy and he does not want to hurt the cop. He just wants him to know that, in fact, everything is not okay at Nakatomi Plaza. As a last resort, he made that plain to see for the officer.

And so as the officer’s car rolls away full of holes, spraying radiator steam along the way, John McClain yells out the now shattered window from which he has been firing.

“Welcome to the Party, Pal!”

I hear that line in my head so often. Troubles I have had or that I have seen others endure, which are not taken seriously by too many people, are suddenly visited upon one who has not taken those troubles seriously.

“Welcome to the Party, Pal!”

It’s not that I’m happy that they are likewise harmed. It’s not even so much that I hope to gain their support, though that certainly figures into it. There may be some element of “I told you so” at play, but it really isn’t even so much that.

In a sense, I am congratulating them. “Welcome to the struggle” might better convey the sentiment. It is as though I was pinning upon a wounded veteran a Purple Heart, and saying to him “You have earned your place among us”.

When Donald Trump was first indicted, I posted a “Welcome to the Party, Pal!” meme to my social media profiles. Back then, I thought perhaps the Don would manage to find a way out of it.

As of yesterday, Donald Trump joins me, Robert Rundo, and too many others, among the ranks of those who have been deprived of their 2nd Amendment Rights, for the crime of trying to save their country.

Welcome to the Party, Pal.

There is no mandatory incarceration for the 34 felonies he has now been convicted of, stemming from his paying off extortionist Stormy Daniels not to tell about the consensual sex they had years prior. Trump had no criminal record until yesterday, and it is possible, though by no means certain, that he will avoid jail time for this series of convictions.

But the Hush Money trial in New York was seen as the weakest of the cases against Trump. Legal analysts said the Judge should never have allowed the case to go to a jury to begin with.

With state and federal indictments still pending throughout the country, some with substantially greater appearance of merit, it is all but certain that more felony convictions are to follow, and one can only be convicted of so many dozens of felonies before he becomes familiar with the confines of a cell.

Welcome to the Party, Pal.

Undeterred, Trump’s supporters flooded his campaign with donations, a record breaking $34.8 million in small dollar amounts.

Ultra-wealthy Sequoia Capitol partner and former Democrat donor Shaun Maguire announced a $300,000 donation to Trump’s campaign, stating “I know that I’ll lose friends for this. Some will refuse to do business with me. The media will probably demonize me, as they have so many others before me. But despite this, I still believe it’s the right thing to do”. He continued, “I refuse to live in a society where people are afraid to speak.”

Welcome to the Party, Pal.


Eventually, the Party is coming for everybody. You can celebrate, or you can complain about the noise, but good luck sleeping through it.


I’ll have much more to say about this, and plenty more, when Radical Agenda airs live, this and every Friday at 9:30pm US Eastern on Odysee, and on the GetMeRadio app for smartphone, Roku, and FireTV.
