  • Joe Biden’s Greatest Asset
    Darrell Castle talks about the first year of President Biden’s term from the perspective of Mr. Biden’s first press conference of the new year. Transcription / Notes JOE BIDEN’S GREATEST ASSET Hello this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle Report. This is Friday the 21st day of January in this the year of our Lord 2022. This is a great opportunity to review one year of Joe Biden since this is exactly one year and one day since his inauguration and coincidently this week was his first press conference of the new year. I confess I did not watch the Presser live as I was at work, but I did see the replay and it left me a little depressed that the President appears to be delusional. That is if he actually believes what he said he believes. What about his first year? Did he have any successes that we can talk about? The question of what is his greatest asset, is an easy one to answer because his greatest asset for the last year and even for the year of his campaign has been that he is not Donald Trump.  That’s not an asset for the 74 million Trump voters, obviously, but for all those in the extreme left of the Democrat base it is an asset. The harder question to answer is whether it is still an asset. My answer based mostly on gut feeling or instinct is no it is not. Joe is doing well though in his eyes at least as he expressed in last Wednesday’s press conference. Everything is just fine according to the President. Everything’s changing. It’s getting better the president said. If you take a look at what we’ve been able to do, we made enormous progress. If you don’t see it that way its probably because there are a lot of things you just don’t understand. The polls confirm that the American people overwhelming agree with his policies and all those polls that show otherwise, well he doesn’t believe them. I won’t call those answers delusional because politicians commonly are so narcissistic, they simply cannot come to grips with their own failure, but the polls this morning are dangerously close to the 20’s. The president believes he has made enormous progress, but he failed miserably to achieve his chief goal which was to heal the divisions caused by four years of Donald Trump and unify the country. The real Joe Biden keeps getting in the way of unity. The one that compares Republicans who disagree with his voting rights bill with Bull Connor. The one who repeatedly lies about being arrested at a civil rights march with Martin Luther King when he was normally on the other side of those issues. He doesn’t see soaring crime rates and soaring inflation as problems of his making or problems needing attention. Joe just wants to help working people. He is not Bernie Sanders he said I’m a mainstream Democrat. Everything he said seems to have two effects with each one scarier than the one before. Is he really the mainstream of the Democrat Party? If so, it spells future disaster for them because despite what the President believes or says he believes, less than one third actually approve of his performance so far. Most people can see that the enormous progress he bragged about includes the worst inflation in 40 years. Every time someone goes to the grocery store or gas station, they see his progress. Each trip families give up one more item they used to enjoy because its not there and if it was they couldn’t afford it. The supply chain disruption issues it seems, were easy to cause but very difficult to fix and there is no progress in sight enormous or slight. What about the enormous progress he made in Afghanistan? I mean, we can all see that can’t we? We are out of there and I will give him that but the way he handled those left behind was so callas the old Joe Biden was evident. He was exposed as the not so grandfatherly, cold, and incompetent that he apparently is. The people left behind to the military’s disapproval, are still there apparently under the tinder mercies of the Taliban. What about the almost one hundred billion dollar...
  • January 6th and the Human Desire to Be Treated Fairly
    Darrell Castle talks about the nation’s Capital on January 6, 2021. He tells the story from a different angle that perhaps you have not heard at least not very often. He refers to his podcast of January 15, 2021 as a previous statement on the incident. Transcription / Notes JANUARY 6TH AND THE HUMAN DESIRE TO BE TREATED FAIRLY Hello this is Darrell Castle with todays Castle Report. This is Friday the 14th day of January in the year 2022 and I am going to be talking about the incident at the nation’s capital on January 6, 2021. I know you have heard the story ad nauseum from politicians and media pundits, but my goal is to tell the story from a different angle that perhaps you have not heard at least not very much. I refer you to my Castle Report index or archives of January 15, 2021, for my previous statement on January 6th. Fairness is a rather ancient concept in the Western World going back to at least the Magna Carta in 1215. It is a world under assault and very threatened right now but still the desire to be treated fairly is one of the most common desires in humanity. Lady justice that all lawyers are familiar with is a symbol of society’s efforts to be fair, to achieve justice and equal protection under the law. The lady is holding a scale in her right hand and a sword in her left, and she is blindfolded. She weighs the evidence without seeing any undue influence, and she backs up her justice with the sword. Go to Europe and you will see the same symbol with a different artist’s touch and a more medieval look to the lady. It is all a symbol of a desire, a pledge, to seek justice and fairness in our legal system. Today I am afraid we have replaced the symbol of lady justice with a pre-set orthodoxy which is clearly defined at the outset of events. In other words, we know the results we want so lets make the evidence take us there. It is even hard to determine who is in charge, who is responsible for failure. I mentioned last week that power seems to reside in a complex network of individuals and organizations pulling in different directions to achieve different ends. The one thing about power that seems clear to me is that the U.S. is ruled by monied interests, the deep state or managerial/administrative state if you prefer, and most of all lies. The lies force us to live in  a false reality that sometimes is important to us so we insist that the lies are reality. The lies affect everything and pull the strings attached to the politicians so that as a nation, no sensible policy foreign or domestic is even possible. For example, it is obvious to me that the reason for the sudden push to provoke war with Russia is cover for the highest inflation in 40 years, supply chain disruption, collapsing borders stupid illogical Covid policies, etc. What does all this have to do with January 6th, I’m trying to get there. The president, early in his term, said that his goal was to correct or cure the divisions in the country caused by four years of Donald Trump. If that was indeed his goal, he has failed miserably. Just my opinion, but I sense that the country is far more divided that it was under Trump’s leadership. For example, once trusted agencies of the federal government are now routinely viewed as corrupt perhaps with more class than some banana republics, but with the same goal in mind. A recent Washington Post poll found that 34 percent of Americans think violent action against the government can be justifiable. 40 percent of republicans and 23 percent of Democrats hold that view according to the Post. In other words, whether violent action is justified or not may depend on who is elected. If Trump had been reelected perhaps Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs would have been in the capitol instead of the idiots who were. Instead of an effort to use the riot to bring about unity or at least some understanding, the president and some other politicians use lies and exaggerations to describe it for what appears to be a naked e...
  • Who Really Has the Power in 2022?
    Darrell Castle talks about what in his opinion is most likely to happen in the upcoming year. What are the trends that we can expect to continue and get stronger, and what trends will weaken and perhaps die. Transcription / Notes WHO REALLY HAS THE POWER IN 2022 Hello this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle Report. This is Friday the 7th day of January 2022, as well as the first Friday of a new year. Instead of a year in review this Report will focus more on what in my opinion is most likely to happen in the upcoming year. What are the trends that we can expect to continue and get stronger, and what trends will weaken and perhaps die? I spent Christmas with Joan and my sister, and we had a wonderful time together. My sister told me about the morning worship of the Dean of Canterbury Cathedral, and I’ve been listening to that each day, but perhaps the best gift and the inspiration for this title, was the Dean’s reading of the Charles Dickens novel, A Christmas Carol. He read the book in three parts, and it was wonderful to hear it in his English accent. The ghost of Christmas future, as you may recall showed Scrooge what his future would be like unless he changed. Scrooge asked the ghost if what he was seeing was what had to happen or what might happen, but he received no reply. Dickens’ novel was and is a part of and an example of the Civilization of the West, or Christian Civilization that I often remind you deserves to be preserved. By way of explanation, I defer to the words of Dr. Paul Craig Roberts. “Every great family and every great civilization has some roots in sin and crimes. What the western world has forgotten is that they also have roots in accomplishments, moral, artistic, cultural, economic, political. We should not forget that man is fallen. There are good and evil that contend for his soul. It was Christianity that gave the powerless a voice capable of challenging the voice of raw power. It was this voice, together with material interests, that produced accountable government, itself subject to a rule of law. ”Well, amen Dr. Roberts and thank you for reminding us so eloquently of what we have lost. Let’s let Dr. Roberts continue for a moment. “Today the rule of law is disappearing. The US Constitution is in tatters. Everyone has become a tyrannical dictator. Not only presidents, chancellors, and prime ministers, but also employers, school boards, university administrators, mayors, governors, airlines, restaurants, sports organizations, issue mandates that are violations of the Nuremburg Laws laid down by the United States at the WW II war crime tribunals. Now the government in Washington refuses to obey its own creation, finding that Big Pharma profits, control over citizens, and perhaps darker agendas are more important than the rule of law. ”Well, that about says it for Western man and the rule of law except that the war against those things will continue and accelerate during 2022. That is, however, just one of many battles being fought in 2022. It is indeed curious why few if any, especially in congress, raise a voice of protest no matter how many wars are fought and lost, no matter how many trillions of dollars are wasted on them, and no matter how many lives are destroyed or ruined by them. Right now, in 2022 we confront Russia across the plains of Ukraine. Some experts tell us we must confront the Russians there or we will lose credibility. That philosophy is insane and was probably cooked up by lunatics who have never confronted any armies across anything. Ukraine is on the border of Russia and is therefore a strategically important territory for them. Putin will never allow American or NATO forces to take root there nor should he. Surely there is someone in Washington who is not so blind he cannot see that.  China’s aggressive defense of what it perceives as its sovereign right to the South China Sea and other Asian territories are another matter. China seems to believe that the water in questio...
