HATE MONGERING

August 12, 2019

The liberal media and Democrat politicians exacerbate every negative situation with vitriolic rhetoric that causes and excites hatred. Sometimes, their actions and wording twist the truth to make it appear negative even when it’s not. Then, when violence occurs, they say the president’s tweets are to blame. Oft ignored is the fact that the statements, those of the msm and their guests, contributors and correspondents place definite divisions on race, religion, politics, gender et al.

Calling for protesters to show up outside a donor’s home in the Hamptons “with pitchforks and torches as one guest did on MSNBC recently does not promote unity and calmness. This was simply because the businessman offered to hold a fundraiser for the president.

Phrases such as “ripping babies from their mother’s arms” that became the meme of the left to describe CBP’s attempts to identify families from child traffickers do not help. Calling those who do not agree with your political views concerning border security “white supremacists” or “extremists” or “Nazis” or “racists” and doxxing them in open forum only incites already angry and unstable people to commit violent acts.

Calling a rifle an “assault weapon” because it is black and looks scary to individuals made fragile by their K-12 education helps the narrative of those who want to eliminate guns. Other weapons that can be, and have been, used to assault the population might be knives, brass (or other hard material) knuckles, rocks, baseball bats, pool cues, pepper spray, acid, etc.

In fact, since the big news stories of El Paso and Dayton, there have been a minimum of three national news stories of knife stabbings. Those, too, were “assaults” with “weapons” where not less than five people died.

Regarding merit based immigration reform as opposed to unchecked illegal migration across our southern border by many hard working but uneducated and indigent individuals and families, Nicole Wallace of MSNBC recently referred to the president as talking about exterminating Latinos. Though walked back later, this type of incendiary speech is not calming to a volatile, demented population looking for a cause to commit violence.

Effective July 1, 2010 a 10% tax was instituted on all tanning salons and businesses that offered tanning services. This was not an equally applied tax on all people or all businesses, it was a direct assault on white people by the Obama administration and enforced under the ACA. Was this a RACIST act?

So, who’s really to blame for the violence and deaths among the citizens and residents of this nation? Is it the president who tweets his beliefs in retaliation against his aggressors, sometimes using foul language? Or, is it the Democrats and their pervasive news arms who broadcast hatred and discontent 24/7 to rile their under educated and angry minions?

NEWS ALERT: HOW LIES BECOME TRUTHS

July 18, 2019

We hear what we want to hear, see what we want to see and accept what we choose to accept. Or, as with the quote often attributed to Marcus Aurelius, “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth”.

It is becoming all too common. A statement, a tweet or gesture is taken out of context and spread across social media until it seeps into the realm of traditional media. If not prior, it then becomes the truth that many seek. The repetition makes it undeniable. It’s real. It happened, I read/saw it everywhere!

Because “somebody did something” some time ago, it is easy to conflate that happening to a glance, a phrase or motion giving it a meaning never meant. It is a ploy used effectively throughout our daily lives and is profoundly used by the main stream media and politicians.

While conflation for effect is used by both sides of the political aisle, it is used most frequently by the left and the far left. If you don’t believe what I say or act the way I believe is correct it’s because you’re a RACIST.

At Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing, a former clerk, sitting behind him, made a movement with her right hand. To Trump haters, this was a display of the White Power symbol. To some, it was a showing of “OK” as if she was agreeing with his answer or with the proceedings. To others she was simply scratching her left arm.

Michelle Obama: “All this for a Damn flag”, was accepted as a true lip reading at 9/11 commemoration ceremony and it became fodder for hatred of the first lady. It gained authenticity as the video and interpretation made the rounds. Nobody other than Michelle and Barack knows for sure what she actually said.

Go back to your country has been used so many times it has the same affect as calling somebody racist…none. Therefore, it can be used as a point of conflation when necessary.

Last Sunday, President Trump aired his frustration with four Democrat freshmen in a tweet. The actual tweet: “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

There was no reference or inference to their sex, heritage, race, ethnicity or national origin. There was no mention of any country yet the distorted version which is so prevalent is “Go back to their countries and fix their governments”. For effect, the Trump haters across the nation, in congress, in cyber, on air and in columns and “actual” news stories have conflated this tweet with a familiar admonishment.

The “Squad” to whom President referred in his tweet consists of:

Ilhan Omar – Minneapolis, MN – poverty rate for Minneapolis is +/- 22% compared to MN over all rate of 10.2%. 109% higher than the national average. For every 100,000 people, there are 15.73 daily crimes that occur in Minneapolis making it less safe than 97% of the cities in the United States. In Minneapolis you have a 1 in 18 chance of becoming a victim of a crime on any given day.

Ayanna Pressley – MA 7th district – Boston. A very diverse population. Poverty is 18.7% or 1.5 times the rate of MA and 1.4 times the national rate. Violent crime is 87.66% higher than the state of Massachusetts and 78.15% higher than national crime rate.

Alexandrea Ocasia-Cortez – Bronx/Queens, New York. 1.7 Million people (52% of her district’s population) lives below the poverty threshold. Chances of being a victim of violent crime is almost 3 times greater than anywhere else in New York State.

Rashida Tlaib – MI 13th dist. Includes half of Detroit. Median household income $29,863 (roughly half of U.S. income). Unemployment 24.7% (6.5 times the national average). Violent crime is second highest in U.S.

Is there still a question about what President Trump was referring to when he said, “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

If you watch or read nothing but opinion news from biased sources you’re left with only one viewpoint and therefore it is the correct one. If you favor the truth, you will avail yourself to multiple sources that vary in viewpoint, each containing at least a modicum of truth.

MEDICATIONS AND MASS MURDERS

February 19, 2018

Nikolas Cruz, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass murderer, was on medication to deal with “emotional fragility”.

Those who have read my previous writings on this subject are well aware of my take on synthetic pharmaceuticals. I am not a doctor or a pharmacist. I am a civilian citizen who is concerned about the number and types of things we are seduced into ingesting in the name of health.

I’ve been called out by medical model professionals of various disciplines who say that the benefits of FDA approved drugs far outweigh the negatives. To which I ask, “Yeah, what about all the violence and suicides committed by those on medications?” “Would those violent acts still have occurred without the mind altering introductions?” (Hypothetical because we’ll never know.)

Though the concentration today is on medications to overcome the symptoms of anxiety and depression, they are not my only concern. I have friends and relatives on as many as 19 drugs taken regularly…most commonly every day. Some of the drugs are to counter the side effects of the drugs taken to allay the side effects caused by other medications that are taken to mask the symptoms of a root problem.

In my view, synthetic pharmaceuticals are too often prescribed to move a patient out the door so that the doctor can record another patient visit. Most synthetic pharmaceuticals do nothing more than hide the symptoms of illnesses rather than treat or remedy the underlying problem. Some, if not all, have a list of “potential” negative side effects which are far worse than the problem displaying the symptoms they are meant to overcome. All too often, there is little in-depth monitoring of the patient’s reactions to the prescribed panacea.

Stephen Paddock, now of Las Vegas fame, was on Diazepam. According to the FDA, diazepam can produce “confusion, withdrawal symptoms, euphoria, increased anxiety, panic, irritability, delirium, aggressiveness/aggression, numbed emotions, instability, restlessness, agitation, inappropriate behavior, delusions, rage, hallucinations, nightmares, confusional or paranoid psychosis/psychoses” in up to 10 percent of users (and that estimate might be generously low).

Drugs.com offers some answers to the horror of today’s society. Click on “A to Z drug list”, pick a letter, a drug, then scroll down to side effects and scare the hell out of yourself.

Almost every one of the mass killers and teen suicides of the past two decades have been using prescribed synthetic pharmaceuticals with horrendous potential side effects. A few well-known names associated with mass atrocities that you may recall are: Prozac, Ritalin, Effexor, Celexa, Paxil, Zoloft, Welbutrin. Those are the names of the real killers.

While the direct weapon most commonly used is a firearm, the list of multiple killings and suicides range among ropes, cars, trucks, knives, ice picks, baseball bats, 2x4s, hammers, screw drivers, machetes, explosives and on and on. Whatever is available when the medication kicks in becomes an instrument of choice.

DONALD TRUMP THE DICTATOR

February 5, 2018

I’m sorry, but I keep retrieving “information” from left-of-center sources. You know, the ones the president deems fake news. I find their “truths” most often devoid of facts while filled with bias, speculation and ungrounded opinion. Generally it is amazingly contradictory to what I accept as true after a little research.

I have a tendency to probe further when I find something that is out of whack from what I have come to believe or even too close to what I want to believe. I chase rabbits down holes where most people would twist an ankle and limp away without regarding the overall cause or effect of the depression before I form conclusions. My writings are often days after the fact because I want them to be correct, not speculative and opinion drawn. Yeah, I’m that kind of different.

Recently, I have concentrated on the talking heads who spout that Donald Trump is a dictator. Again, there is no substantiation for the sentiment, just the accusation. It’s like calling someone a racist, without recognizing that the person is of mixed race or part of a family comprised of many races, just because there is a disagreement of policy or conviction. The dictator appellation is always thrown out by people who don’t understand a dictatorship. They are the same people who advocate for the Castro brothers, Kim Jung un, Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro. They ignorantly embrace socialism and communism believing either governing and economic system is better than a capitalist free society because that is what they’ve been taught in school.

They are the people who applauded President Obama for unconstitutionally enacting prohibitive regulations on their and our lives because he is charismatic. They are the people who believe it is better to be dependent on government than it is to be responsible for their personal well-being. They are the generation(s) still living with their parents because whatever income they derive, is worthy of gifts only for themselves. They would prefer using the family car to owning and maintaining their own. Allowing mom or dad to pay the the insurance premium is what parents are all about.

They are the same lemmings who do the grunt work on behalf of multi-millionaire community organizers and billionaire subversives who’s goal is to ultimately subjugate them. To them, causing occasional social disturbance with physical violence for $10 or $15 an hour is preferable to an eight hour shift and regular income.

We have seen a tremendous change in society over the past few decades as the public school teachers and college professors spend more time and effort advocating for gender confusion and social justice than they do educating students. What we now have is generation after generation of youth who cannot read their high school diplomas (even if they receive one), but know it is racist to point it out…no matter what their heritage.

What they have is an ignorant love for dictatorship because they don’t understand what it is. However, they will protest it when it comes upon them. That generation will wish Donald Trump was still, or again, their president.

A GROWING BODY OF INNUENDO

May 30, 2017

 

Facts are facts. News is news. Allegations and innuendo are neither facts or news. Yet, due to electronic transmission, there is a confusion generated and allegations are accepted as truth.

It was about two weeks ago that I read an article about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson considering a run for the presidency. This article was generated from a GQ interview in which he answered questions rather ambiguously but without denial of the thought. He’s having a ball with it. The story has made it through the web and back meaning he is seriously looking into it. It’s beginning to generate a donation flow to a non-existent campaign.

I laughed knowing, at least hoping, that it was not a sincere consideration as I read through the drivel. I don’t know anything about The Rock’s political acumen or his knowledge of history or world affairs. He might be quite knowledgeable in all those areas. He may also be ignorant. He’s an entertainer by trade. He’s a celebrity. Those attributes make some people send checks to his manager. Me? Eh, not so much.

However, just for fun, I chose to share the “news” verbally with a friend to see what kind of response it might evoke. I was prepared to be called a fool for believing it. To my surprise, there was no questioning, not even an eyebrow raise. It was readily accepted as true and something to hope for (anybody to get us away from Trump). I honestly don’t know if it was carried any further. In any case, I doubt that any research was done to verify or deny the veracity of the idea. The idea was implanted.

Newscasters try mightily to make their presentations believable by quoting an “anonymous source close to” the origination of a story. That anonymous source might be the aide to a congressman who was actually present when a third person phone call took place. That aide might have conveyed their understanding of what was discussed based on a perception of that half of the conversation. From there it became news as a fourth or successive person shared it with a reporter who shared it with the public.

It is foolish to believe anything you read or watch on the one-eyed idiot box. There is an agenda for everything these days. If you like the agenda, you are likely to accept it as true otherwise it is summarily rejected. That’s the way we’re programmed. Innuendo becomes truth. When repeated enough times, it is undeniable fact.

BTW, President Trump was seen eating some bacon and picking his nose with his right hand on Air Force One just before landing in Saudi Arabia last week. He didn’t bother to wash or even wipe it before shaking hands with King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia. 

That’s the truth!
