Binge And Purge

Here we see progressives engaging in their favorite activity-Censorship!

First, they binge on their hate and victimhood, and then they purge all those whom have offended. Why? Because words are now weapons, and thoughts are criminal……unless you’re in the right group, or groupthink, that is. Otherwise, you will be harangued, harassed, blocked, banned, or worse. Like in the case of Jeremy Hambly, a successful YouTube personality and commentator that recently attended GenCon 2018 ( a national gaming conference ) only to be ambushed and beaten for not towing the Social Justice Warrior line in his many videos.  Or the now infamous Alex Jones and his news site Infowars, not only blocked on various platforms like YouTube and Facebook, but also pulled from comments providers like DisQus, internet radio apps like Spotify, Apple, TuneIn and beyond…..all within 24 hours. In fact, the very internet infrastructure that most take for granted……email, video hosting and posting, have now been denied to Jones. This author has personally been limited and shadowbanned as well, especially by Facebook and Twitter, who classify all whom do not agree with the “Dazi”  (Progressive/Identity Politics/Social Justice/Demo-Socialist) agenda as mortal enemies.

“So what? It’s doesn’t affect me.”…..Well, actually, it does. What defines what is “news” anyway? If CNN, NBC, ABC, and all of their cable off-shoots are news, why isn’t InfoWars? Why isn’t this site? For a long time there was at least the pretension of objective news. When it was three channels and a couple of UHF’s, the lefty-progs who delivered the news made an effort – though not a heroic one- to mask their collective ideology and “report the facts”. Do you believe that’s the case now? If you do, I grieve for you and the loss of your critical thinking skills. The “news” is now a product made to sell you, sway you, and entertain you. Discerning truth from opinion is more difficult than ever.  It’s a bit like watching movies, really. If you know nothing of film production or critical reviewing ( Thanks to RedLetterMedia.com for ruining my entertainment consumption, by the way ), then the illusion is complete and enjoyable. If, on the other hand, you learn to spot the re-used tropes, plot holes, and cheap gags employed by filmmakers it is an entirely different experience….and often not for the better. I would strongly urge anyone reading this to take a critical eye to the “news” presented to you, if you’re not already, because it will also be a totally different experience….and again, often not for the better. With that mode of thinking employed, I ask you…….whom should decide what you should see or hear…you? Congress? The CEO’s located within a few square miles of California where Big Tech resides? If you didn’t guess right the first time, I’ll help….the correct answer is YOU.

The Media sets the stage for much of our society. Hollywood and Entertainment Inc. then follow suit with promoting progressive leftism. It might be the other way around, but the results are the same. Discrimination, racism and hate are running rampant, and not in the delusional way people like Rob Reiner and Rosie O’Donnell think. If you are a Trump voter, or even just a normal non-political person that is tired of the hypocrisy of social justice and the progressive left, you are a target. You can now be deemed an “unperson”, denied access to society, and assaulted and attacked. You can be barred from participating in the free flow of information and thought. In the past two years the rhetoric from the Controllers-Of-Culture has gone from zero to insanity. For a serious number of idiots out there, the call to mob violence is now completely justified….because their devoted and approved sources tell them they are righteous in their dumb and angry indignation. For these people, there is no objective self-awareness or knowledge of their own extreme hypocrisy. They are completely blind to the plot holes in the narrative that has been fed to them, so it’s easy to demonize “the other”.

Social Justice Warriors in Action!

The results of the intellectual fascism in our society is on display all around you. If those that are in control of culture can ban speech, ban access to speech and information, and sanction assault on those that they disagree with, what will be the result? If well-known people…..like Alex Jones and InfoWars, can be effectively silenced and exiled, and others – like Jeremy Hambly – can be attacked without repercussions for the perpetrators, what chance do you have?

Things are rapidly coming to a head. There are now two easily identified systems of justice and standards applied – racism is okay if you’re talking about Whitey, collusion with foreign agents and governments while spying on American citizens is cool if you worked for Barack, discrimination, censorship and digital book-burning is totally awesome if you’re a Prog, and violently assaulting people because they say words you don’t like or have ideas you disagree with is the Bee’s Knees. All of this has a definable goal……to shut you up and make you afraid. One commenter on Twitter said ” Don’t listen to this guy ( me ) you’ll just end up banned too”….well, I’m glad that coward wasn’t storming Normandy Beach in World War 2, aren’t you? If you care about avoiding, at worst ,  a second civil war, and at best a complete and total end to free access to information and the expectation of public safety – then it’s time to stand up and say something. That means speaking out and demanding a return to sane and civil public discourse, as well as uniting with others whom share your concerns. Otherwise you can sit, wait, and look forward to a yellow armband and a one-way train ride.

Dumb And Dumber

  Let’s get something out-of-the-way before I begin today’s column: If you are expecting commentary, or a defense of, the Helsinki Summit between Trump and Putin, you are about to be disappointed. First, what took place between the leaders of the U.S. and the Russian Federation was a standard meeting between world powers, and nothing spectacular took place.  Second, the “Russia Narrative” is fantasy, and nothing but an excuse for the loss of a poor candidate with a poor message. What started as a ruse to cover the criminality of the Obama administration quickly became the mechanism for the removal of a duly elected President by the Unelected Progressive Bureaucracy. Frankly, I have grown tired of arguing with  idiots about this issue, and if you still believe in the Russia fallacy – that a defeated nation with the economy of Italy, that two previous administrations ignored while it invaded Georgia and then Crimea, and that could not (outside of nukes ) pose any military threat to the U.S ( For example, the United States has 10 active aircraft carriers and Russia has one )  – all with China is on the march – then I have no desire to attempt to reverse your intellectual failings and incredible ignorance. Feel free to keep calling for nuclear war over Clinton campaign opposition-research if it floats your boat.

Russia’s Single Carrier Belching Smoke

Moving on, the Democrat party in the United States is drastically swinging left in a way that borders on insanity. I know, after eight years of the most incompetent, divisive, and corrupt administration ever undertaken….who would have thought that the political left could get crazier? Well, they are.  28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently won her Democrat primary against 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley. She’s a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, what I call a “Dazi”, and she’s like, super cool and stuff. In her recent appearance on PBS’s “Firing Line”, she was asked a series of innocent and simple questions. One query to Ocasio-Cortez was a request for clarification about her repeated assertions regarding  “the situation in occupied Palestine” and what she thought that meant. She could neither define what “occupied Palestine” was, nor how it related to geopolitics. She literally sat there looking ( and being ) stupid. Her answer was ” I’m no expert….”, even though in college she majored in international relations. Okay, so she’s dumb about foreign policy, so what?

“Dazi” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

  ( Don’t take my word for it…..the link below will take you to the interview )

http://www.pbs.org/wnet/firing-line/video/alexandria-ocasio-cortez/

Well, next she went on to opine that “capitalism hasn’t always existed….and it won’t always”. I’m not sure what economic system Ocasio-Cortez thinks has created the most luxurious standard of living ever recorded in human history…….but I know, and it’s capitalism.  She then claimed that we have “unrestricted capitalism”, and spat out some Obama-like gibberish about how evil that is. Wow. Maybe she’s confused about what the word “unrestricted” means. So she’s dumb about the economy too (even though she majored in that as well), so what?

Ocasio-Cortez was then asked about her take on the current state of the economy. Easy, right? Nope. She went on to say that the low unemployment numbers are a ruse, and the truth was that it’s only because “people are working two jobs…..and 60, 70, 80 hours a week, so…”. Uh…that’s not how unemployment is calculated. Not even close. This is when I realized that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez literally knows nothing. A college graduate with a degree in economics and international relations, yet she knows absolutely nothing about either subject. How could someone who is, no offense Alexandria, this demonstrably stupid gain enough votes to win her primary? Oh, I know….. it’s because the Left is made up of babies in adult bodies, who loudly cry and have tantrums without ever really knowing anything about anything. This is what happens when someone thinks history started the day they were born, and sadly that’s a lot of folks.

If you think Ocasio-Cortez’s victory is a fluke, I have bad news for you. She’ll probably go on to win, and between now and then we are going to see more people like her. Dumb ideas and even dumber agendas. I hope you’re not tired of hearing about “social justice”, “gender equality”, “patriarchy”, “LGBTQQPP+”, and “trans issues”, because that’s what has now consumed progressive-left politics. If you don’t believe me, you can tune in to her upcoming appearance at the Facebook-sponsored  2018 Netroots Nation conference August 2-4th……….where the biggest issues of the New Left will be discussed…..namely “menstrual equality”. I’m not joking. Sigh.

Beware The Nothing

   “People have begun to lose their hopes and forget their dreams…..so The Nothing grows stronger.” – The Neverending Story

 If you’re unfamiliar with the 1984 movie “The NeverEnding Story”, or its progenitor novel by Michael Ende, here’s the main point: A malevolent force called “The Nothing” is sweeping through the world, enveloping all it encounters, leaving nothing in its wake but a dark, empty void. Well, in the Western World, and especially in the United States, we also are being swallowed by a vacuous, nihilistic entity……..and it’s name is Progressivism.

Though we are living in extraordinary and historic times, with the economy booming and liberty expanding, with monumental changes in government happening at breakneck speed, there are those that are so enveloped in the darkness of their neuroses that they can’t find their way out. The world these sad and deluded people occupy has been positively affected by the actions of the Trump administration, yet the mental disorder that afflicts them will not allow them to recognize or understand it. Even the historic moves made towards peace on the Korean Peninsula are viewed through the lens of irrational hate. Why?

For the past decade, the damage done to Western Civilization by Progressives has been monumental. Under the guise of “fairness” and “equality”, individual liberty and freedom have been eroded so violently that I can barely remember the world the way it was before. Actually, that’s the Prog’s biggest problem………that there are still those who do remember freedom of expression, speech, and religion. There aren’t enough brainwashed millennials and bubbleheaded feminists to crush what remains of The Great Experiment………yet.  It was supposed to be over already, this Western Enlightenment, because of the cancer of identity politics, gender politics, sexual politics, and the loss of any moral and ethical grounding. The presidency of Barrack Obama was to be the final, victorious assault……with Barry himself dressed in the perfect armor of his skin color, swinging his mighty executive pen in a total war against logic and critical thinking, impervious to attack. Well……..oops.

What the leaders of The Nothing don’t realize is that in their wild tantrums they have flung off their cloaks of  fake and preening moral righteousness, and they now lay naked before us. The blemishes and pustules reflecting their internal disease are exposed for all to see. The Clinton cabal, the Bushes…….most of those that find themselves working in government, are parasites……and like ticks they are imbedded in the body politic, sucking our blood while they grow corpulent and bloated. In order to distract and manipulate the public into sleeping through the loss of their lifeblood, these incompetents have convinced millions to be focused on the childish insanity of political correctness and victimhood. Just think of all the mindless zombies wandering the planet worried about nothing more than the weather and whether you’ve got a ding-a-ling or a va-jay-jay…….oh, and don’t forget to never forget what color you are. The politics of the Progressive are without hope, empty, and useless, and leaves its practicioners the same way.

In The NeverEnding story, some of those in the path of destruction hopelessly fling themselves into the darkness, convinced that escape is impossible. In today’s culture, we see the same thing.  Suicide now kills more people in the United States than car crashes. Among white people between the age of 18 and 54 it is now the leading cause of death, and among all people its the second. Well? Why not? If you believe Progs, it’s because whatever is wrong with the world, it’s YOU that is the reason, and it’s getting rid of YOU that will fix everything…….unless you plan on voting Democrat that is.

The Nothing is pervasive and insidious, and you can feel it encroaching on everything around us……it’s in entertainment media, on CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and on stage at awards shows. Its advance permeates every atom of every part of our society.  In fiction, The Nothing was stopped and reversed by a brave young boy and his friends…..but in the real world, it will take those of us not yet cowed and beaten by Progressive, Globalist Fascism to stand against the black tide. Sadly, we will have to banish the darkness without the help of those already lost……….and if you are obsessed with “gender identity”, “patriarchy”, and “intersectionality”…….you’re already gone.

You Don’t Have To Live Like A Refugee

 

 

“refugees” atop the U.S. border fence

A caravan of supposed and alleged “refugees” has spent the last few months winding its way through Central America and Mexico in order to cross the border of the United States. A group of American lawyers, through the traitorous “Pueblos Sin Fronteras”, is responsible for organizing and funding this invasion, with the help of the Mexican government. Contrary to the never-ending depositing of fecal material done by the Media, this “caravan” is not made up of women and children nor is it a collection of victims of American Oppression. This is nothing more, and nothing less, than more of the same global Establishment’s efforts to continue to flood the ignorant and spoiled America with more 3rd world dependents…..that will vote and lobby for the same corruption they are fleeing.

Take a look at the image heading this essay. There they are, sitting atop the dilapidated fence that serves as the United States border. What is that they’re waving, you ask? Why, that’s the Honduran flag. When perusing the opinion pieces that pass for news these days, I see a common theme that’s not commented on. Here’s another picture of another heroic “refugee” crossing into the U.S…..have you noticed that, again, you see what can only be described as an adult male proudly draped in……….you guessed it, the Honduran flag? Weird.

Color me confused…..but this doesn’t match the narrative I see and hear daily from the Media. I hear about women and children abused and tortured by their country of origin…….desperately running for their lives into the U.S. in order to seek “asylum” and, you guessed it, “do the jobs that Americans just won’t do”. Once again, and this seems to be the case on literally every issue, politicians and media are saying and reporting lies and fantasy, specifically formulated to get an emotional reaction from the moronic American public. “Don’t believe what you see”, they say……..it’s all about “the children”. What a great trick the progressive Uniparty has pulled off in the last two decades…….fostering and fulminating a millions-strong foreign invasion of an uneducated and unassimilated horde that embraces government tyranny and a welfare check. The best part of this trick is the significant portion of the actual citizenry that have fallen for this con. They’re on Twitter, Facebook, and internet forums patting themselves on the back and calling anyone who disagrees with them a white supremacist. It really is quite something to see half of the people who will suffer from this invasion hatefully advocating for it.

I have questions for these “refugees” and their American advocates……why can’t you change the government and political landscape of your country of origin? If the culture and country you are fleeing is so murderous and horrible, why do you proudly and arrogantly wave its flag? If you love America’s “land of opportunity” so much, why have you not attempted to learn its language, laws, and customs? When did asylum become a “right”? And if it is, why is it only a “right” for soon-to-be burdens on the State that make their way to a land crossing into the U.S.?  Is there any group, from any country, that doesn’t have a “right” to asylum? Is there any limit to the number of, or type of, “refugees” that have this newly found “right”?

This is part of a larger movement to permanently change the make-up and electorate of the United States. It has been under way for a couple of decades now, and it has been completely successful. The combination of historically ignorant, narcissistic, and virtue-signaling American citizens and culturally ignorant, narcissistic, and entitled foreign invaders has worked its magic like a charm. Would you like to know what would make me believe, and even support, these “refugees”? Instead of the clenched and raised fists, the hateful faces spouting lawyer-trained talking points, and the proud waving of the Honduran flag while angrily refusing the language and culture of the country they demand to enter ……………..imagine a hopeful and grateful group of families, desperate to embrace and assimilate into the land they hope to inhabit, their hands proudly clutching an American flag. Picture them learning and studying the culture, customs, and language of their desired new home during their long trek…..ready to become proud Americans while rejecting the tribalism and tyranny of the country they came from. Now that would be something, wouldn’t it?  If you think that’s a crazy idea, then maybe you can tell me which one of the pictures below is most assuredly not like the other.

The Centre Cannot Hold

What a truly historic event. The government of The United States decided, while in massive debt, to spend another 1.3 trillion dollars by October of this year. Regardless of the reasons, this is just another catalyst on our journey towards a very dark horizon. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a conservative Republican that thinks this amount of spending is worthy of a case of the vapors……..nor am I a celebratory Democrat – patting myself on the back for pissing away enough dollar bills to build a stairway that goes more than a quarter of the way to the moon (*Wired.com 9/02/11). What I am is tired.

It’s incredibly disconcerting to think of the state of affairs, in virtually every instance, that we in Western Civilization find ourselves in. I can find no historical reference for what I seem to be witnessing. I can find allegories and parallels that resemble our predicament…and they aren’t good….but none to the level of insanity that we now face. Greece, our true forbear, tore itself apart due to constant internal squabbling….even though it united previously against Persia. Rome fell after many centuries of prosperity…..due to apathy and the watering down of citizenship and it’s responsibilities ( sound familiar? ).  The Eternal City was sacked, illustratively by the equivalent of hostile “illegal immigrants”. But what we see now is different. We are living in the greatest disconnect ever seen in human history. Our greatest achievements may also  be our undoing, as the global age of technology has not done what people like Gene Roddenberry ( creator of Star Trek ) envisioned……namely ending human struggle and ushering in a kind of new Enlightemnemt……it has instead led to the most divisive, deceitful, and disconnected conglomeration of civilizations ever known. Tech is tearing us apart.

That’s why current events, and more importantly the spin and commentary I have seen surrounding them, are incredibly disheartening. I see many people playing the same, tired games where you hear the words “Republican” and “Democrat” in every sentence……..when it’s all a ruse and they – and we – know it. I heard Republican talking heads whining about how “unconservative” this all is…..when they know damn well a “conservative” didn’t get elected……..and when it’s their Legislature that writes and passes this crap. If by some miracle somebody like…..say, Ted Cruz, had been elected…..do you think he would have accomplished anything at this point, or would it now be Bush term #3? Don’t fool yourself, please.  I don’t think that President Trump was lying, or being disingenuous when he announced the spending bill. I don’t think his comments afterwards were insincere or stupid……I just don’t agree. I think he is perhaps unaware of the apathy and discouragement of the average person, and expects those who were moved in 2016 to be moved again this year. I think that is greatly underestimating our current conditions.

The Republican Party is dead. It was dead before Donald Trump ran for President, and it’s still dead now. The geniuses at all the Republican think-tanks said all along Trump wasn’t a “Republican”, and they were right. Republicans are lying, jelly-spine creeps that would sell their souls to continue their tyrannical positions in government…….all while claiming to stand for your rights……. while taking them. If the Republicans lose this year it will be because of their (most likely purposeful) failure to embrace national populism and individual rights, opting instead for their worn-out, and now exposed, two-faced agenda. Here’s the thing though…….The Democrat Party is dead. It was dead before Trump ran for President, and it’s still dead now. The geniuses at all the Democrat think-tanks said all along Trump wouldn’t be President, and they were wrong. But, like their counterparts, Democrats are lying, jelly-spine creeps that would sell their souls to continue their tyrannical positions in government….all while claiming to stand for your rights…..while taking them. If Democrats win this year it will be because they will lie and pretend to be Centrist Populists while lurching ever leftward, all with the help of a willing, CIA-controlled, Stalinist-Media.

Without intervention, or a unifying event, the United States will not survive…..at least not in any way you would recognize. We are slaves to personal social media that lies to us with government funds, and also to an unelected bureaucracy that spies on our every whispered word. We are divided between too many factions……..from Puritans to LGBTQQFF@++ non-gender-conforming-non-binaries. How do such opposing forces join together? Are we already like strong magnets at opposing poles, and there is nothing that can bring us together?

The Thousand Pound Straw

Most of us have heard the phrase, ” the straw that broke the camel’s back”, right? It’s an adage that has been used for millennia to describe “a seemingly small or inconsequential issue, problem, or burden that proves to be the final catalyst in causing an overworked or overburdened person, system, organization, etc., to fail, give up, or collapse.”*. Well, if President Trump’s comments about gun confiscation come to legal fruition, then he has placed a thousand-pound straw on We The People’s backs.

It was reported in 2016 that Trump famously claimed that he could “shoot somebody…..and I wouldn’t lose votes..”. Since I am not a leftist, and therefore in possession of a sense of humor, I took that comment in stride, laughed, and moved on. I’ve done that with a lot of the more inane comments coming from the POTUS, as I think it important, and helpful, to hear directly from the Commander-in-Chief, especially in this crazy climate of irrational hate and “resistance”. I am not one of these people who talk about “comportment”, and being “statesmanlike”, as I don’t know what that means…..because those in government whom have supposedly possessed these traits have run the United States into the ground, and were private reprobates. Being aware of this fact has led me to allow Trump much leeway with his comments and behavior, because his policies have been mostly spot-on. Besides, with the incessant attacks on Trump it has been impossible to do much serious analysis about policy……instead it’s defending against irrational garbage like “white supremacy” and “fitness for office”. I usually prefer to give Trump the benefit of the doubt, as I realize it must be extremely taxing to have 90+ percent negative 24/7 press coverage, all while the establishment tries to destroy you and your entire family.

With all of that said, though…….the President’s comment that ” first we take the guns……then we do due process later…” is indicative of either a disconnect with who elected him, or of a desire to “do something” about guns when we should “do something” about our kids and the parenting strategies employed in their rearing. I get it, everyone is all in a tizzy about school shootings and AR-15’s…….because we have become a shallow, reactionary society. I’ve heard all about violent video games and music and blah, blah, blah…….when the actual root cause of our problems is failed parents, failed schools, failed curriculum, failed leaders and institutions, and sadly……failed and damaged young people for whom I do not hold out much hope for.

Western Civilization is being overrun by children. Not just by literal children, but by petulant, emotional children whom are inhabiting adult bodies. I don’t mean people, like me, who can be immature and impatient, or may make uncouth statements…….I mean people whose response to every single issue or event is governed by irrational, unthinking, emotion. Whether its “gender identity”, gun control, or railing against the supposed “patriarchy”, there aren’t many critically thinking adults involved.  All modern universities offer is the ability to dress up the ideas of idiots in fancy language. Rampant ignorance about human nature and actual history are the rules of the day. Maybe that’s why when I see a bunch of high-school kids telling me what rights I can or can’t enjoy, regardless of the traumatic events they went through ( How would we ever win WW2 today? Those were drafted “kids”, after all ) I tend to have a negative reaction.

My advice to the President is this: Stop listening to progressives and schoolchildren for your solutions to what is a societal parenting and education problem. We don’t need “gun control”, as there is less access to guns now than in the past……..we need “loser control”. If law enforcement wasn’t populated by politicians like Sheriff Israel in Parkland, FL. – and our bureaucratic systems weren’t bogged down with incompetent, unelected leftists that are impossible to fire, maybe we could trust a system that could identify nuts like the school shooter and the Republican baseball practice shooter before they act……but we don’t have that. We have a United States where half of the population is mindlessly ignorant and childlike, that demands virtue-signaling, dumb responses to tragedies, and a Justice Department dedicated to overthrowing an election and not preventing crime. Worse, we have a significant percentage of people who do not understand where our Rights come from. The Constitution tells the government what Rights we were given at birth by our Creator – whom or whatever you think that is – that cannot be taken away by that government. The Right to Bear Arms was not granted by our founding documents, just recognized by them. I would advise President Trump to keep that in mind when pontificating pandering to his enemies over defense of our Rights………as he cannot take away what God has given, and to try would be disastrous folly.
