A Family Squabble

If I remember this joke it goes something like this;  An International Socialist and A National Socialist walk into a Civil War park…

Something smells fishy, even orchestrated, about an event where a group of Global Socialists and their cabal of Useful Elitist A-holes are positioned across from a group of National Socialists and their Confederacy of Useful Racist A-holes… and then the Mayor of Charlottesville Virginia, Michael Buffer, has all of the police leave the area.

Hmmm…

I have long espoused at this very ink-spot that the only thing Socialists like to do more than fight with Capitalists is fight with each other.  History demonstrates this over and over and over…

That brings us to the newly discovered town of Charlottesville Virginia.

And a Civil War Statue.

And a park chock full of various flavors of Socialism.

And some kind of a police department.

All culminating in Socialists doing what Socialists do… fighting with each other resulting in death.

Seriously, if you don’t want to die the very best starting point any person can adopt is to stay as far away from a Socialist as possible.  This also, necessarily, means don’t be one.  Losing ones life advocating government tyranny and state slavery is not a story that one should be proud of.  Promote the miracle of Individual Liberty and Freedom this country was founded upon from a distance.  Socialists are Dangerous!  Stay Away!  Let law enforcement handle them… unless they’re the Charlottesville PD, then just STAY AWAY and hope it sorts itself out.

Frankly, I think the Charlottesville Police Department, or rather a real police department from somewhere else, should have erected a giant Wall around these fools and made them hash it out until they came to terms.  That’s what Families are supposed to do.  “Take it out to the back yard!  Or, the Civil War Park! And don’t come home until it’s settled!”

Keep in mind folks, both of these groups believe in the subjugation of Human Beings.  One side tries to justify it using race, the other actively justifies it by their bizarre vacillating opinion of who is stupid based solely on whomever disagrees with them.  Both are poisonous.  Both ideologies have killed people, 9 Million in the case of the National Socialists and now well past 100 Million in the case of the International Socialists.

We would all be better off without any of these people.  But all we can do is promote the amazing Enlightenment Philosophy born from The Age of Reason this country was founded upon.  (Are we doing that anywhere?)

Our Socialist news outlets, or just “news outlets” to make it easy, want us to be angry with a President for not responding quickly enough in condemning one of the groups… BUT NOT BOTH.  If there were ever an illustration of the danger we face from our own press, this is it.

Look, Trump, as far as I can tell, has no ideological foundation.  I can’t place him as a Socialist any more than I can place him as a Capitalist.  I guess the only fitting label is the meaningless trash can term of “Populist” due to the fact it applies to individuals who have not given the time to think about what they actually believe in.  So “Populist” it is.

But what is really going on here?

True, it would have been the perfect time for Trump to come out swinging and go live with a full-throated defense of Individual Liberty and Freedom as clearly outlined in our Declaration of Independence.  It still is the perfect time for The Donald to explain the threat both of these groups of Evil A-Holes represent to that very Liberty and Freedom found only in the United States of America.  But refer back to what I just said… it’s not in him to understand these things.  We will have to be satisfied with some decent Supreme Court Nominees and a partial dismantling of an out of control bureaucracy.  We could find hope, if we’re looking hard enough, in the fact that he is forcing the Establishment RINO class to go on the record so the rest of us know who not to give money to and vote against in the primaries.  However that has yet to be proven out.

But back to what is really going on here?

Well, it seems pretty simple.

The Russia thing has run its course.  None of us care… at least not in terms of what Trump was doing.  A lot of us care about Hillary, Podesta, the DNC etc.  And that, that, that cannot be allowed to happen.  It’s getting uncomfortable for our homegrown Elitist Klass and thus a new narrative must be born.

Send in the Clowns…. to a Virginia park…. in a city none of us ever heard of…. seemingly out of the blue.

Don’t fool yourselves.  This theater in the park was long in the making.  The Liberals are desperate, and When all else fails… play the race card.  (Have you noticed nobody is talking about the horrors of International Socialism?  It’s all about Race.  How convenient.)

So there we were minding our own business when Terry McCauliffe and the crowd put together a show timed with a ready to eat message telling the world how Trump is a NAZI  (National Democratic Socialist).   -In all honesty, that’s giving the man a lot of credit as there is no evidence I can point to that he has thought enough about political ideology to arrive even at that.  But I digress.-

Therefore the new Narrative this Fall, when we all start paying attention again, is going to be “The Trump Administration, with specific names placed on “must go” lists, are a bunch of Racist NAZI’s! (Of course the whole Socialist thing will be glossed over because the press knows we all went to public school and have no idea that the NAZI’s were Socialists just like their Soviet buddies around the world with really only one difference and that being the ownership of production, but we can chat about that for persons brave enough to learn something down in the comments.)

That’s it folks, it’s all about a New Message for the Fall.  You didn’t buy the Evil Russian Conspiracy, sooooo… It’s a shiny new ‘thing’ to move your attention away from the Slavs and onto a well-worn page of the Communist Playbook.  Saul Alinsky would be proud, sadly, at the success some of his old tactics can still generate.

The take away?

If you want to gauge the success of Trump, out front and more importantly behind the scenes, just look at the Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth being piped into your home via the TV.  One might think that he is truly as successful as he says he is… judged by the screaming.

 


Laying Flowers at Stalin’s Grave

A Russian Communist party activist carries a portrait of late Soviet leader Joseph Stalin during a May Day rally in Moscow on May 1, 2017

 

I have spoken before about personally witnessing Babushkii laying flowers upon Stalin’s grave.

I’ll post the below article without additional comment…

Moscow (AFP) – Russians have picked Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin as the greatest figure in history, a new poll said Monday, beating President Vladimir Putin into joint second alongside poet Alexander Pushkin.

In the poll conducted in April by the Levada Centre independent pollster, Russians were asked to pick the ten greatest individuals of all time.

Stalin came out on top with 38 percent, while Putin shared second place on 34 percent with Russia’s beloved national bard Pushkin.

Revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, Tsar Peter the Great and first man in space Yury Gagarin came next in the list of 20 people, with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in last place on six percent.

The list includes famed statesmen, writers and scientists but only three foreigners: Napoleon Bonaparte, Albert Einstein, and Isaac Newton.

Stalin topped a similar poll back in 2012 with an even higher score as Russians focus on his role in winning World War II rather the millions who were executed or sent to prison camps under his rule.

Putin’s percentage was the highest since he began appearing in the poll in 2003.

The NSA and Kevin Bacon…

Since we’ve returned to caring about being Surveilled…

Let’s climb into our time machine and travel all the way back to 2013, when we told you so.

An unprecedented, at least to me, move by No Such Agency has brought the Director to an open briefing on Capital Hill.

So I’m listening.

But, there are two things which I would like to hear…

Mr. Alexander is very careful to remind everyone paying attention, which appears to be very few, that the NSA does not listen to the content of these calls collected under this program.

I’d like to focus on the “…under this program.” part of his repeated statement and reassurance.

There are many programs within all government operations, many of which overlap. This is practiced for various reasons. Some of them funding, some of them compartmentalization. Some, simply because of turf and time on scene.

So, I would like to hear someone ask; “Mr. Director, is anyone at NSA listening to the content of the calls collected, or reading the e-mail and text messaging?”

Another aspect I find interesting is the “connection to a known, or suspected terrorist” requirement Mr. Alexander has reassured us exists prior to looking at your information.

On this I bring up Kevin Bacon. Yes, the actor.

There exists a mathematical formula which connects us all.  It has been around for 80 years but has recently been popularized through something called the Kevin Bacon Game.

Six degrees of separation, a theory developed by Frigyes Karinthy in the year 1929, proposes that an individual is only six connections away from any person in the world.

Read the last five words in the above sentence again.  “…any person in the world.”

That would include Terrorist A-holes.  Yep… if you’re just catching up, YOU are separated by the most horrible person on earth by only 6 degrees.

The exploration of the degrees of separation between individuals communication, or connections, is called “spidering“.

So, my next question would be; “Mr. Director, how many degrees of separation from the suspect do you find acceptable to explore?  In other words, do you stop at say Two?  Four?  Six?”

Because stopping at “Six” means they have given themselves the authority to Spy on “…any person in the world.”  (Even “Five” should make most of us physically ill… “Three” only marginally better.)

There is also the issue of freely denying that anyone can listen to your phone calls.  I have seen this in practice first hand… when a suspect is apprehended, say a burglar, the police cannot legally go through his cell phone.  Yet… they do.  What “legally” means is whatever information found there is not admissible in court.  It does not mean that some amazing physics come into play preventing the very action of going through the person’s cell phone.  Remember folks, words mean things.  The world becomes much clearer when you listen carefully.

Finally, I am intrigued by what is considered “civilian” over-sight.  In this case, the “civilian” oversight is being performed by ex-military appointees.  One might ask, is this a difference without a distinction?  I understand the argument could be applied to the President on down, but those are elected positions.  I would like to hear someone explore how Civilian oversight has any impact after the person performing that service has retired from a Government entity.  In other words, once you’ve completed serving the Government Mission for many years you can take Retirement and then serve the Citizens interest by overseeing the very programs you may have been associated with the day before.

While I deeply respect those in the military as a rule, it does not change the fact that many of the most horrid Statists known to man have come directly from there.  Seems like the checks and balances are not served in a way that is as reassuring as possible… at least to me.

It will be interesting to view the transcripts of this hearing once complete.

My overall feeling here is They are intentionally missing the point… as They know Domestic Spying IS the point, not catching Foreign Terrorist A-holes.

The Red Herring is the reiteration that all the information being used is Public and available to Private Companies, so No Problem.  It is a blatant attempt to blur the definition of Public as it is meant.  In this case, Public means out in the open… not Government Property.  The fact the information is available to PRIVATE companies is irrelevant.  If this information is truly “out there for all to see” then the Government should not need to demand it from any Private entity.  But it is not… and the Government sees fit to use their power to compel certain Private entities to supply it to them.

All of our information is not available, nor should it be available, to GOVERNMENT without direct legal cause, free of Constitutional restriction.  That is a very, very important distinction here in the “Freest Country on Earth”.  (Damn that Constitution is SO restrictive…  it tells them what they CAN’T do to us, but not what they CAN do to us…)

It’s amazing how quickly one sobers up when listening to our Spooks…  Unless you’re an elected representative in the room with them, then it appears you fall asleep. (You’ll have to watch the hearing to see what I’m typing about here.  I want you to watch, so I won’t ruin it by showing you.)

(Also! For the record, I love our Spooks.  But much of what they do should stay, or be returned to being, illegal… just in case.  I know this Borrows their argument about why they want to store all of OUR info… we might need their actions to have been illegal down the road.  That’s a real check.  And, they answer to us not the other way around.)

Fight the Universe!

(On the heels of Ossof in Georgia… and the next stop being Montana… this needed to quick re-post.  We’re watching the Anti-American Left spend their time and money on losing endeavors.  I say “More Of It!”  Now if we can just figure out how to stop them from accessing taxpayer dollars to throw at this Destroy America effort…)

To all of you Protesters Opposing Stuff…

The money for organizing your feigned outrage over non-issues is drying up. The ‘coolness’ associated with yelling and screaming against things you know nothing about, and protesting the free-speech of those you’ve never listened to, is waning. In addition, the public interest in your inane assertions is non-existent to begin with and we’re heading into summer. It’s hard to hold a campus protest when nobody is there to care and nobody around to watch.

But chin up, Buckaroo.

I, for one, want to encourage you to keep it up. I realize such efforts require enormous amounts of energy, particularly when you’re no longer getting paid, bused and fed at these foolishly numerous protests. But your outrage over the Injustices of the Universe need to be expressed.

Just like you, I believe there is a Cosmic Conspiracy to screw… well.. screw, YOU!

(Not me. The Universe is not out to get me. The Universe and I had a long conversation years ago and the Universe made it clear in no uncertain terms that it didn’t care about me. We both left with an understanding. I moved on.)

So keep it up!

I mean why not? After the last 8-years over 25% are not working anyway. It’s not like you don’t have the time. Yes, yes, I know you’ll be doing it for ‘free’. But it’s not about the money, right? The cause is bigger than getting paid! It’s about Justice, or something. And frankly, what’s more “just” than special rights for you that others don’t have and taking money from other people who earned it all the while supporting rich Leftists who make a living getting you to do stuff to oppose things you don’t understand… none of which will lead to gainful employment and a future worth living.

So, FORWARD!

Unless all of you Useful Idiots are tired…


Trump enforces Obama’s Red Line… with Bill Clinton’s Tomahawk Diplomacy.

There are a great many Politicians and Talking Heads that need to read the following:

“The War Powers Resolution requires the President to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30-day withdrawal period, without a Congressional authorization for use of military force (AUMF) or a declaration of war by the United States. The resolution was passed by two-thirds of Congress, overriding a presidential veto.”

That’s 90 days for a President to do what they please. 90 days.

If you’re taking a position on our bombing of a Syrian Airbase in response to the use of Weapons of Mass Destruction, then you shouldn’t continue to remain willfully ignorant.

I’m not asking you to agree, or disagree, with Trump’s bombing of Syria.

I’m asking you to makeaneffort.

While the Left hates it… words still mean specific things and are not subject to how you feel about them.


Why do Socialists Hate Capitalism?

(Archive Diving)

So why does the Left, Progressive, Democrat, Liberal Socialist hate Capitalism so very, very, much?  (I don’t like having to use so many terms, but every time we figure out who these people are they change their name.)

They Hate Capitalism because it does not need them.

I’ve written about this is the past. Capitalism is the Default State of Economics. Capitalism appears in the hardest of Communist experiments. Mutually Beneficial Exchange bubbles up under the most horrific regimes.  There is always a War to stop it… but Voluntary Free-Trade cannot be stopped… ever.

This fact, that Free-Trade does not need Socialist guidance, makes them feel small in the Universe. It is a cold illustration of their value… and when you have an Ego that demands your “intelligence” be recognized, this is indeed a painful insult to suffer.

So, the self-proclaimed “Elites” among us have created, perpetuated, clung to, a governing theory that makes them feel good regardless of the historically demonstrable destruction left in it’s wake.

They have ignored, rewritten, re-phrased and changed the meaning of everything to protect the only system that permanently puts them in charge of everybody else.  I will remind you that this mindset is found across party lines… once you understand the definition of Socialism and it’s variants, spotting it is simple and you will no longer be fooled by “Democrat”, “Republican”, etc.

The reason I bring this up is that the election is upon us.  And if you think the Liberals will go quietly into the night you will be gravely disappointed.  There will be a screaming and gnashing of teeth rarely seen.  The Socialists have achieved almost all of what they have been working on for the last 100 years.  They will do anything and everything in order to preserve those gains.  The accusations will be loud, vile and repeated often not just by them but by their friends in the press.  All efforts to return the United States to a path of fiscal solvency and Free-Market principles will be met with claims of destruction, disease and death.  Should they lose their power… They will push, beg, plead, for “Bipartisanship”, “Cooperation” and “Compromise” to hold on to their gains and maintain status quo until they can wrest control of the government again.  And we have seen what happens when they have that control…

This is far from over, so don’t think you can just cast your vote and walk away.  If we are going to be the country the rest of the world looks up to, there will need to be a level of perseverance never before required of the electorate.  You will have to hold those you voted for accountable for the principles they espoused.  You will have to have a solid foundation to repel the arguments flung at you from the Left.  The Liberals will be desperate… and ruthless.  All the while accusing you of being both.

So it’s time for the Capitalists to move Forward!

Roll back the policies of the Past!  Save the Country from Bankruptcy!  Restore Individual Freedom!

We all know Free-Market Capitalism is the wave of the future.  It’s been 100 years… let’s give it a try again.  It will be painful, particularly for those who have built empires on Socialist policies.  It will also hurt the feelings of those who think they know better for you than you do.  But I can live with that.  Let’s bruise some Ego’s.  Even the Leftists will be better off for it.

Anything to Save It!

(A Blast from the past…)

Anything but Repeal It!

The Democrats (And Establishment RINO’s) want Any “Fix” that keeps Obama Care on the Books…

President Clinton is the latest to offer up a “fix” to Obama Care by suggesting the Current President should champion a change in the law to allow Citizens to keep their current Health Insurance if they like it. “Allow”…

“Allow” me to bypass the obvious question as to who do these people think they are to “Allow” me to do anything… and get to the bigger issue at hand.

The Destruction of the Health Insurance Companies is analogous to Cortez burning his ships when he landed on the New World.

(Realize, the Government may tolerate a few Health Insurance companies to exist so long as they can be completely controlled via regulations… the Fascist flavor of Socialism.  It is what We have “Allowed” these people to do in almost every Industry.  This brand of Fascism is why the EPA and OSHA exist.  Without these agencies Insurance Companies, not to mention Self Interest, would be the mechanism for spreading Best Practices.  Get the connection?  Do you suddenly see why “Big Insurance” is the enemy of the Left?  They represent competition to Big Government.  Therefore the Left believes They must be removed, or at a minimum diminished to the point of uselessness.  And we’re witnessing it happen as I tap this out.)

There is no, nor will there be, any “fix” to the complete and total destruction of the Health Insurance Industry we are watching before our eyes. The only solution to what is an ill-advised attempt of Government to wrest control over 1/6th of the Economy while once again removing all Free-Market Competition, Voluntary Exchange and your Right to Choose is a complete Repeal of this Disastrous Law.

Anything else is simply an effort to preserve the Big Government, aka Socialist, gains achieved during the first two years of Democrat Control over The United States.

Anything else is just buying time while you “Get Used” to Government telling you what you must do when it comes to purchasing Health Insurance.  Then what you eat, and drive, and activities you pass time doing etc.  Because it all has to do with your Health.  The only “fix” Liberals want when it comes to Health Care is enough time for you to get your mind right and accept that Government is the Answer.

But they Need you to scream for them to “Fix” it.  Which is why they all seem to be standing around watching the Health System Implode.  An Implosion they caused.  All they’re waiting for is for you to blame the Insurance Companies and beg Government to step in… with Single Payer or what is otherwise known as Government Run Health Care.

It has been the goal from the beginning.  It is still the goal.

And, Once the deed is done there can be no turning back.

Social Security was supposed to be a temporary Insurance Safety Net.  Temporary… But given enough time you folks began counting on it and decided it should be permanent.  So permanent in fact that the politicians took your cue and spent all the money collected for it on other things because they knew you would never let that stream of income to Government go away.  But they didn’t spend it on important things, things we could have done without.  They wasted it.  They allowed their friends to have it.  They squandered it.  Because who needs discipline when the money just keeps rolling in?  And You gave them permission.  You are Still giving them permission.

This is no different.

Don’t let this happen again.

Demand Complete Repeal!

When Democrats stand up and say “Republicans have never liked this law and just want to get rid of it!”, you should stand up and say “You’re Right!”  “We Warned You!”  “In Fact, We Warned You with Plenty of Time not to let this Happen in the First Place!”  “Are You Listening?”

All this was bad from the beginning and it needs to be done away with, not preserved with some “fix” created to placate you until you “see the light” and concede your Freedoms to those in Washington.

It is no mystery that I’m not a fan of about 80% of the Republican Party.  But it is a Party that must move to Repeal this hideous legislation.  It is a Party that needs to step around the likes of John McCain, Chris Christy and Lindsey Graham to save this country from the mistakes of Democratic Socialists world over.  If there has ever been a rallying point, or issue, of our time it is this.  We were not there to fight against what we now know to be huge wastes of money and drags on productivity of the past.  But we are here now.

The push to Socialize Medicine must be stopped.

And in the future, Anyone who even suggests such a Scheme should be disqualified from serious consideration when it comes to holding power in this Country.
