In Defense of Elizabeth Warren…

Is it Xenophobia?

The Cherokee Nation has spoken:

“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said. “Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation” – Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr.

What Mr. Hoskin is refusing to accept is the Reality that Elizabeth Warren is simply an “Undocumented Cherokee”. Ms. Warren is here whether Mr. Hoskin and his Tribe, like it or not. Since she is already claiming Cherokee Heritage and has acted as a member in good standing of the Cherokee Nation for Decades it is only reasonable that the Cherokee Nation accept her and provide full rights and benefits as possessed by every Cherokee Tribe Member. I should remind Mr. Hoskin that Senator Warren has contributed greatly to the Tribe from her representation as a ‘Person of Color’ at Harvard to Cookbooks highlighting uniquely Native American Cuisine. Senator Warren has promoted the Tribes by personally excelling through a life of Socialist politics while positively absolutely and without question not capitalizing on her Native American Identity.

My message to Mr. Hoskin is as follows:

Dear Mr. Hoskin Jr.,

I hope the Sovereign Nations can pry themselves away from what civilized people would consider a 19th Century mindset.

The World is Not Flat, Mr. Hoskins.

Elizabeth Warren is Native American because she says she is. You must respect that.

Due Regards,
Chief

“The European Model”

Unfortunately Not the European Model we will be Talking About.

It’s difficult to think up a good conspiracy theory anymore.
Just when I have crafted something particularly devious and sinister then sugar coat it with ‘best intentions’ so it goes down the throats of “have a go” commenters…
It turns out to be, well, True.
What is an Drunken Evil Genius supposed to do when all of his work is being pre-empted by cheap HB-1 Visa holders in Silicon Valley?
Woe is me…

Alas, one of my favorites sites alerted me to a Google Presentation on Good Censorship.

Let me qualify first that I’m a free market kind of guy. I’m more Libertarian than anything else and will often side with the Dregs and Deplorables of our Republic.  What I’m about to point out does not mean I think regulation is a viable answer… but it does mean I find removing every penny of my tax dollars from the hands of private companies should be on every table.  Enough of that.

After pouring a stout cup of Cafe Bustelo (It should always be Strong, Black, Burnt and Bitter like my Women) I began going through the ‘leaked’ presentation.

It was Horrifying.  I had to add another shot of bourbon to my coffee.

We have talked about Conspiracy Theories here in the past.  This overt move by Google is astonishing… and as we have seen over the last decade with other supposed ‘tin foil hat’ stuff… now provable.

What struck me was not the idea Google was ‘editing’, but rather the idea they found brilliance in what they described as “The European Model”.

In essence, the Presentation offers that the United States pursues Freedom and Liberty which allows horrible things to happen.  In other words, Freedom and Liberty allow for things to happen that the majority of Leftists over at Google don’t like or agree with.

Instead, they propose – and are moving on, ‘Freedom must be Sacrificed for Civility’ and ‘Liberty must be Sacrificed for Dignity’.

Holy Carp!

The folks at Google don’t like the whole Freedom thing because it can’t be controlled… BY DEFINITION.  Stupid Freedom gets in the way of Forcing America into the ‘United World Union of Democratic Socialist Utopians’ – UWUDSU (pronounced ‘you-wood-sue’).  Sorry… it’s that extra shot in my coffee.  Anyway…

How can this be?  Real People can’t truly believe that Socialism works…

Well, I’m not sure how much more evidence you need.  There are basically two types of ‘Real People’ at play here.  The first group is too ignorant or delusional, intentionally or unintentionally, to know the Poison of Socialism.  They, of course, consider themselves members of next group…  (That is until the next group actually secures full control over things.  Then the first group’s lack of membership is made clear often with Starvation, Jail Cells, quickly dug Trenches etc.)

Regarding the second Group, it has been experienced throughout the history of mankind that certain groups of individuals will believe themselves to be anointed philosopher kings and will charge themselves with ‘protecting’ the rest of us from… ourselves.  (Enter Google who is busy giving voice to the Elitist A-Hole position that the unwashed cannot be given the responsibility to determine what is Civil and what is Dignified on their own.)

As we have stated before, an Elitist looks at you and says:

“When you are presented with a decision the only thing we can count on you doing is making the wrong one.” – Elitist A-Hole

This is why they secure positions of power via election, censorship or arms to make sure they can make it for you.

In their minds you should be Thanking them, seriously.  They think you should be writing them Thank You cards… and, of course, paying them lots and lots of your tax payer dollars.

But let’s place the Elitist A-holes on the sideline for a moment and talk about the idea of a “European Model” the United States is supposed to longingly emulate.

The European Model is one of Monarchy, Imperialism, Colonialism, War, Oppression, Slavery, Strict Class Stasis and codified Civility/Dignity in order to make sure those Class Lines were never to be crossed.  The EU Model is one of Blood and Genocide. It’s one of Cultural Eradication.  It has been built upon a belief of Divine Blood Lines.  So corrupt was its history that the ‘New Socialist European Model’ appeared attractive by comparison.  Sadly it was just another ploy by a Disenfranchised Aristocracy seeing the Death of the Feudal System that had kept them in place.  (Read the origins of the International Soviet, the London School of Economics, Engels, Hegel, Marx, Plato, Dewey, Lenin and the Fabian Socialists to start.)  And to the delight of that what could have been the former ruling class, aka ‘the rich folks who ran things but were hoisted upon pitch forks’, the population fell for it, all except those in the American Colonies who watched intently what was happening with the European Model and opted out.  I relaize this is a big expanse of time and a cogent argument could be attempted that most of the ‘intellectuals’ associated with Socialism found their fame in the 1800’s.  But the roots of this idea had been laid for hundreds of years prior to what is considered the ‘revolutionary’ period.  (Speaking of famous revolutions… France Tried but chased Equality instead of Liberty and ended up with Members on Mission.  those were the guys hauling the Guillotine from town to town.  Portable Social Justice.)

We, the United States, chose to pursue Freedom and Liberty rather that Civility, Dignity and Equality as the latter three would always require a Divine Administrator to Govern.

“If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In forming a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.” —James Madison, The Federalist No. 51

We had closely watched the horrors associated with Elitists in Europe telling the Masses what they were Free to do and what they were not Free to do.

We decided we could defend our Individual Freedom and Liberty without a Permanent Class of Ruling Elitist A-Holes deciding for us what we can decide for ourselves…

In the mid 1700’s We opted out of the EU Model.  We determined the act of petitioning the King with gifts in order to win approval for one’s personal choices gave the King too much power.  We opted out of Regressive, Re-packaged, Return to Feudalism that the illusion of Democracy within a nascent Socialist Paradigm promised… but designed intentionally to never deliver.

We said Enough!

…An then dressed up like Indians and threw a Tea Party on a Boat.

Google says… we should get back to that Oppression Stuff!

Let that sink in.

The only aspect of this piece of garbage presentation I admire is the assertion these changes need to be made in order for Google to expand.  Why?  Because it’s the only rational and honest statement made as it embraces the Evil.  The Raw truth this statement represents is the recognition of a very real War going on and between those of us who Believe in Freedom and Liberty of the Individual and Those that Do Not.  So Google is saying if you want to do business with those that Do Not… it’s time to censor, oppress and suppress those that do.   (Historically this leads to the Death and Destruction of the very society these delusional people believe they are promoting.  It’s not Debatable… it’s Demonstrable.  Can you imagine this argument being made today in regards to Slavery?  It’s the same argument… except almost everyone are the Slaves.)

We are here now.  Who would have thought?

Google should start a new marketing campaign; Forward Oppression!  I think the ANTIFA-Fascists would just Love it.  (Has anyone else noticed the ANTIFA-Fascist flag is Red, White and Black.  Odd choice of colors… or maybe not.)

So whip off your Tin Foil Propeller Beanie and craft something a bit more elaborate… another Conspiracy Theory has died at the altar of Socialism.  There is still hope for the aluminum clad crowd… 5G is coming.


Awake… Arise… Or Be Forever Fallen!

So there I was, Minding my own Scotch… and I get a message from X.  In the most perfunctory way possible he made clear it was time for me to dig myself out from the secure comfort I’ve been enjoying and return to the fray.

Well… Fine!

Who am I to disagree?

I have to say right up front, it has been an exciting few months.  From the ANTIFA-Facists to the complete fabrication of accusations used to slime a man who is far better than I, the Theater of the Absurd never ends.

The timeliness of X’s prompt is exquisite.  It just so happened that I was struck by something so profoundly stupid that I was seriously considering putting my drink down.  So let’s go there first…

A Gentleman by the name of Ruchir Sharma said the following on what used to be a go to network for business news;

“We may or may not believe in [American exceptionalism], but the financial markets have never believed in it to such an extent,” added Sharma, head of emerging markets and chief global strategist at Morgan Stanley Investment Management.”

Please read that again real quick.

So…

I would ask Mr. Sharma what American Exceptionalism has to do with a booming economy?  If he is speaking to Property Rights and the influx of foreign investment which is recognizing the United States as a Safe Haven for their wealth, then okay… maybe… but I’m not sure he is.  I believe he is conflating the financial success of the current economic reforms, which are returning the United States to its position as the World Leading Economic Engine, with Freedom and Liberty of the Individual.  I would then remind Mr. Sharma that it is the latter which constitutes “American Exceptionalism”.

Why is this such a big deal?

It’s a big friggin’ deal because the Socialist Democrats have been diligently dumbing down our population for decades in the hopes ‘educated’ individuals like Mr. Sharma will intentionally or unintentionally continue to do their work for them.  Sadly, they have been very, very, successful.

However, in his defense let’s assume Mr. Sharma knows what American Exceptionalism is.  Now let’s take the beginning of his assertion… “We may or may not believe in [American Exceptionalism]…”.  I then have to ask who it is that does not believe in Freedom and Liberty of the Individual?  You speak as if you know or this opening qualification would not be necessary.

Yes, yes… I know these people are out there Hammering away at the Malleable Proletariat but I like to have them on the record so we all know who they are which is why I ask.  (One of the reasons I’ve been hiding out around the Barnes and Noble in Tyson’s Corner, aside from all the TOTALLY COMMON and super awesome Gang Rape Parties that EVERYONE has ALL THE TIME around the short hop to Bethesda, is watching how Trump’s mere existence is bringing these Socialist Democrat A-holes out into the open.)

So Who is it, Mr. Sharma, that does not believe in American Exceptionalism?  Who is it exactly that does not believe in the Freedom and Liberty of the Individual and the power inalienable rights has unleashed upon the World propelling the United States to the most powerful country on Earth in just a short few hundred years?  Who are these people who believe a person’s rights are bestowed upon them by Government made up of fallible, elitist, narcissistic beings and not God… or the Universe… or simply because they Exist?

Who?

Name names…

It’s okay, Mr. Sharma, I know you can’t do this for several of reasons.  1.)  You may be one of those people.  2.)  You like your paid gig and wish to keep it by specifically not offending those fallible, narcissistic elitists who employ you.  3.)  Both 1 and 2.

So allow me to say what I’m hoping you meant to say.

The Current Economic Boom occurring in The United States is substantially due to the removal of barriers upon the Engine of Capitalism which were erected by Socialist Scum as they believe it’s not ‘Fair’ that Free (er) Markets are so damned successful and restraining them is the only hope for their foolish Command and Control Economic Idiocy to catch up.

Giving you the benefit of the doubt, I’m sure that’s what you wanted to say…

You’re Welcome.

Now we wait for Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg to retire and the ensuing melt down.

The Left is the proverbial ‘drowning man’… it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

Next!


Need a Little Help Here… Are the Russians Coming?

While it’s true, I’ve been laying low watching the fire overhead, I am struck by this latest explosion of stupidity.

So, I’m going to untie my fingers.

First I will say, I hate me some Russians. Actually I hate me some Socialists which continues to include Russians.  This is for reasons nobody cares about but I’ve made clear over the years.

That being said, WTF?
Trump goes over to pay a visit to Vlad and our local socialists, our Socialist press and the Never Trump useful idiots go ape sh*t.

The Dems have no option but to continue their attempt to connect Trump with Russian meddling. Why, because they have nothing but good news to get mad about.  AND… they are being forced to be honest about who they are.  Both of the above are not good for their future.  (Did the Russians meddle in the election process? Of course they did. And they will again… just as the Chinese do, the North Koreans do, the Iranians wish they could… etc. etc. Hey dummy, here’s another tidbit, we do it too. And we will continue to do it. What do you think all that money for “Clandestine” services is used for? For you current college students, see if you can find a dictionary and look up ‘clandestine’. ) It is enjoyable however to watch Democrats hate on some Russians.  It’s like a Domestic Abuse episode of Jerry Springer where the wife is beating the crap out of the husband for everyone to see.  It’s funny because it’s purely theater and they don’t really mean it… but they think it makes for good ratings.  (And in the end the wife goes back to the husband.)

The Press is hell-bent on anyone other than Trump heavily flavored by their bizarre love affair of all things Socialist. So they are working diligently to keep the words “Trump” and “Russia” appearing together in every sentence they utter. It’s become boring.  (Has anyone heard anything about Venuzuela lately?  With any frequency?)

The Never Trumpers are desperate to get their power back and reclaim their rightful place in history as the Slave Party to the Democratic Socialists.  Can I get you a Starbucks?

Even the Criticism I’m hearing from those I listen to attentively is odd.

“Trump threw the CIA under the bus!”

So?

Folks, since when does the President of the United States suffer an obligation to stand behind everything his intelligence services say? Yes… I get it. Better to say nothing at all, but that was not allowed to happen by the Leftist Press… and it never will be allowed to happen when it comes to any Political Leader standing in the way of the the the Press’ Socialist Utopia.  Can you blame them?  What could be better than standing in line for toilet paper… oh right, the Systematic Starvation.  My bad.

Just a note — does anyone here remember when George W. Bush believed his intelligence folks and went after WMDs in Iraq? Seems to my foggy alcohol addled memory that the Leftist a-holes jumped all over him for only finding Chemical Weapons (which actually are WMDs).  Anyone?  Bueller?

The only interesting aspect of this latest Media Destabilization Effort coming from the Trump Administration is who on the Republican side of the aisle is drawing the long knives?

I would watch these people carefully… we have officially entered the Presidential Election Cycle.

I’m crawling back into my hole now.  I have castles on clouds to build.


State of Kansas experiences Mass Exodus of Law Enforcement Officers!

In light of a new law just passed in Kansas, Law Enforcement Personnel are moving to any of 32 other states.

“We can’t get out of here fast enough!”  says one unidentified Wichita Police Officer interviewed by our on scene reporter.  “We knew this was coming, but didn’t think it would happen so quickly.  It was just out of the Blue…”

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Join me (once again… and again… and again…) in raising a shot glass full of Tequila paired with a fine, German Crafted, Mexican Cerveza celebrating just one of a long list of French military defeats.
Since turning French military catastrophe into holidays would leave us with little time to actually work, we in the U.S. and Mexico have decided that the 5th of May will be it.

Viva Cinco de Mayo!

It was a turning point for the Mexican army (under Seguin) when they defeated the French at Puebla… Blah, blah, blah, Whatever…

While I certainly give credit to the Mexican army for defeating the French… so has everyone else.  In other words it’s a huge, not so exclusive, club with an  ever-expanding membership… kind of like Costco.  As far as I’m concerned, I’ll toast Mexico as well as all those throughout history who have kept the French contained and focused on making cheese, creating recipes for animals humans would otherwise not eat and various delightfully fluffy egg dishes.

Salud!


Is Mexico Responsible for Anything?

I have a simple question.

Is Mexico responsible for anything?

Admittedly, it is difficult to lay complete blame for the drug violence on Mexico when we (the U.S. citizenry) are consuming the product of, and we (the U.S. government) are arming, the drug cartels. So let’s be generous and say “we” are responsible for 60% of the problem. Seem reasonable? So why do we only hear about our 60%? What about the other 40%?

(Update the below paragraph with “Caravans heading North”…)

Considering the lines outside emigration services yesterday it struck me that Mexico was doing nothing to help “legitimize” the status of the individuals in line. But to Mexico’s defense even if they had I’m not sure it would have been warmly received.  In fact, several of the “on scene” interviews sounded more like asylum cases in that the individual would run down a list of how inhospitable and outright dangerous Mexico is. The idea of going back, to them, would be cruel and unusual punishment for crime they did not commit.  While I personally enjoy Mexico and find it to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth… I do not necessarily disagree, but it lends to the larger issue.

Is Mexico responsible for anything?  If so, what?

Let’s say Canadians were flooding across the border for reasons of escape… (which in some medically related scenarios is not so far-fetched) would we be so tolerant of the Canadian government as to continuously find ways to blame ourselves? And since we’re on that topic… blame ourselves for what? Is it our fault that we cling to the final visage of Free-Market Capitalism in the world and the prosperity it promulgates, thus creating a more desirable alternative than the place these folks are escaping from?

So why are we quiet in regard to Mexico?

Why exactly is it not Mexico’s responsibility to create that same atmosphere for their citizens?  (The same applies to all Latin American countries given our current predicament.)

Why should Mexico be absolved of the international cry to improve their economy, create jobs and control crime repeatedly leveled at the U.S.?  It’s certainly not a lack of natural resources, ports, or favorable climate… It’s clearly not the lack of population or strong work ethic. So why?

Partly it is a U.S. media predisposed to self loathe U.S. success and prosperity. It simply is not in vogue to appreciate the Capitalist system our country was founded on, assuming they know what that is, or the riches realized from it. The flip side of that is a programmed desire not to criticize Socialist countries, not because it might make the country look bad but because they would have to look in the mirror and re-evaluate their personal beliefs.

The final aspect is Political Correctness and the fear of being labeled racist should anyone step up and offer the truth. They know the first Journalist to speak out loud that ‘Mexico shares the blame for our border problems and must own their economic woes will be labeled a bigot who hates… I don’t even know anymore… Mexicans? Hispanics? Latinos? Mayans? Aztecs? Spaniards? I mean seriously. The world is cosmopolitan. Having a Spanish surname means little here in the U.S. but the census still counts you as Hispanic… Why?  Because that’s how the money is handed out.  Rest assured, someone would be offended somewhere, so you’d be a bigot somehow.
All I’m asking for is reasoned, rational, discussion.

What I’m saying simply is there must be a focus on other countries responsibility when it comes to their citizenry and internal economic problems.

Unfortunately it seems all too easy to blame the U.S. for all the ills in the world, especially by our own journalists. When I say “easy”, I mean both comfortably and safely. They are comfortable because they believe it, and they are safe because they know as long as they blame the U.S. First… there will be no punishment directed at them from the industry of the offended.  The Antifa Fascists will be fine with it, so they know their houses will not be burnt down.

Think about the comments from the EU and how the problems they suffer are always the fault of United States.  The starvation and disease in Africa is our fault.  The illegal immigration problem right here in the U.S. is our fault… because, like every other country in the world including Mexico,  we don’t openly accept just anyone who crosses the border.  It’s stunning how the world expects us to bend in every way imaginable while they conduct themselves in a way of “business as usual”.

It’s also stunning that absolutely no attention is paid to how we became a country that could help those less fortunate on our borders… and around the world.  But here’s a hint… it wasn’t by giving all of our stuff away.

I am a Capitalist.  As such, this is not a cry to seal the borders and not let anyone in, or pull all of our Diplomats home.  On the contrary, I like tall fences and wide gates.  I expect to have access to the best products at the best prices for my self-determined needs.  Having emissaries abroad is important to communicate the benefits of freedom and liberty of the individual as well as aid those who wish to embrace it for themselves in their own countries.

But there needs to be rational and reasonable assessments when determining the foundation of problems lest no solutions can ever be arrived at.

Unless that’s the point.

For more on “the point”: La Gran Mentira

(A repost from 8/16/12, since illegal immigration is now being used to destroy the Constitution’s Separation of Powers.  It’s dated, but brings up what I believe to be an important question.  What are we saying about Mexico?  Are we delaying a Revolution south of our Border?  If so, to whose benefit?  And if we are delaying a Revolution, is it serving to make Mexico, and Latin America as a whole, more Fragile?)
