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.

MUD SLINGING FOR EFFECT

September 21, 2018

In the military, the term is “fire for effect”, in politics it might be the above title. Fire for effect is a command given after the target has been identified and range and location are closely approximated. Once this all comes together, barrage fire takes place to devastate the enemy. It is not always dead-spot one shot accurate, but it does eliminate the threat.

For those of you without a calendar it is officially post Labor Day of an even numbered year. It’s election season! The political equivalent of the military maneuver is often used around election time to overwhelm the ignorant among us into believing things which are less than truthful and cannot be verified and combated.

This time around, there is more at stake than just congressional seats or even a presidential office vacancy. This year it is truly about the Constitution and whether it will be upheld and followed or if laws will be written by the courts rather than the Legislative branch of our government. This year it is most certainly about the seating of a Supreme Court justice and the filling of a soon to be vacant seat that can make or break the country.

Yep, it’s dirty tricks time. The Democrats, acting not as deliberative individuals but as an Orwellian group-think body, have tried to delay the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh until after the November 6 elections in hopes of overcoming his ascension to the highest court in the land of the free and the home of the brave with an unbelievable tactic. A last minute surprise accusation of sexual assault has been levied against Judge Brett Kavanaugh that is not only provable or disprovable, but he apparently cannot even face his accuser.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the accuser, refuses to testify under oath that the event even took place. Apparently the simple, unsubstantiated accusation is enough to delay and derail the confirmation hearings. What Dr. Ford has stated is that she definitely recalls 17 year old Brett Kavanaugh attacked her at a party while they were both in high school (sometime between 1980 and 1982). She knows she was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17, but she cannot specifically recall the year (???). She cannot identify the date of the attack, the home in which it supposedly occurred or even how she got home after the party and the devastating episode.

Dr. Ford, a California research psychologist and professor at Palo Alto University is also a Democrat/socialist and political activist who has participated in anti-Trump rallies and events. While those Democrats in congress and those on CNN and MSNBC are screaming that this is not a political stunt, one must recognize that Dr. Ford lives in one of the most liberal bastions within the confines of the most liberal state of the union. If you think this is not political, you don’t understand Democrat politics.

Today, in the time of the “MeToo” movement, all that is necessary for a liberal woman to ruin a man’s life is to declare that she is a victim. It doesn’t work so well if the man is also a ranking Democrat (e.g. Karen Monahan and Keith Ellison) and it doesn’t work if the woman is a sound minded conservative. However, if the woman is an activist liberal the man conservative, put him in shackles and stone him into confessing be there a crime or not.

Let’s see how well this works. I heard through a mutual friend that Dr. Ford had a three month long sexual relationship with a thirteen year old neighbor about ten years ago. It cannot be verified though because the young boy committed suicide shortly thereafter. Does that help to your career Chris?

LET’S AVOID RUSHING TO A FOOLISH CONCLUSION

May 19, 2017

For a week and a half we’ve heard a trickle of information and a flood of speculation regarding the dismissal of James Comey. The social media meme thread includes questions and accusations involving coercion, bribery, extortion and private threats.

First the Democrats began crying for Comey’s head because he caused Hillary’s presidential demise with his public announcements. Next they gloated and praised his performance for a while after he publicly announced the conclusion of an investigation into Email Gate. Then they turned on him like rabid and starving rats when he stood before another microphone to proclaim his investigators found new evidence and he was reopening the case.

James Comey was the Federal Bureau of Investigations Director from September 4, 2013 until his last day on May 9, 2017. Comey’s career includes government affiliation from 2002 when he became a U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and a stint as United States Deputy Attorney General under George W. Bush. Thereafter, for eight years, he chose the private sector where he was employed as council for Lockheed Martin and Bridgewater Associates before returning to public service as Director of the FBI.

According to his bio, Comey was a registered Republican until 2016. At that time, he changed his party affiliation to Independent. Was this move made due to distrust for the Republican nominee at that time?

As of this publication, it has been eleven days since Comey’s discharge and there still is no definitive explanation for why it happened when it did, only conjecture and opinion. Yet, depending on viewpoint or political bent, there is angst and anger on behalf of both Trump supporters and “the Resistance”. Half want the president to be impeached (but that started about midnight EST on November 8, 2016) while the other side supportively praises his actions.

Neither side has sufficient information to know whether the move was warranted at that time, prior to then or not at all. There seems to be nary a fact available. All judgments at this point appear to be made on innuendo, speculation, allegations, wants and wishes. It is simply another opportunity for the resistance movement to call for resistance. News stations and print media claiming unbiased reporting are all knee deep in the hog pen mire that is national politics today. Social media offers highly charged opinions which become gospel as they twine their way through the web to hand-held electronic devices.

It is said that James Comey, like his predecessor, wrote down the important points of meetings with ranking political officials in case he needed them to testify before congress. Is the wording of those notes influenced by his emotions, fears or ambitions? Does he also have notes of meetings with President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Adam Schiff, Elija Cummings and others? Can/will they be subpoenaed? Will the notes become a tell-all memoir worth millions of dollars to a publisher as with most of the recent politicians upon leaving the political arena? We’ll have to wait to see.

Echoes for a special counsel resounded through the halls of congress and microphones of the media until one was appointed. Shouldn’t they also call for special prosecutors and independent investigators to look into such things as Eric Holder and his Fast and Furious scheme and the Clintons (both) including sexual assault, national security breaches, the Clinton foundation – fraud and influence peddling. Perhaps someone should take a serious look at President Obama and why he made public announcements of troop movements and assault planning days, weeks and months before they occurred. Do you remember Extortion 17? How about seeking more information regarding how it was that James Comey took it upon himself not to prosecute Hillary Clinton? This decision usurped the authority of his boss, Loretta Lynch, though she didn’t object.

I’m all for a special prosecutor and Robert Mueller has the potential to do the job. Let’s find out the whole story about Russian involvement into our election process. Let’s seek the truth about all aspects of government. Let’s quiet the whining. If there is need, censure or even impeach and remove the president. If nothing is found we can announce the idiocy of the call.

As we’re spending thousands of person hours (*note the PC reference), frittering resources and tens of millions of dollars with independent investigations and special prosecutors trying to prove negatives, why not look into the ties between Adam Schiff and organized crime? Perhaps there should be a special prosecutor investigating Eric Stalwell and his connection to child trafficking, enslavement, prostitution and surgical mutilation. There is currently nothing tying these men to the crimes indicated, but how do we know for sure no crimes were committed without a thorough investigation? You’ve now seen their names linked to crimes and both are bred from the corrupt politics of California.

If there’s truly an interest in election tampering or fraud or influencing an election, why isn’t there more attention given to illegal aliens and felons and dead people voting or computers changing votes? Where is the outrage about people voting two and three times in different districts under different names? Where is the concern about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DNC denying Bernie Sanders equal opportunity?

Who can assure, in this politically charged environment, that even Robert Mueller is unbiased and able to do the job without malice? After all, Director Comey was heralded as “as honest as they come” until he became known as corrupt.

TODAY’S LESSON: HOW TO OFFEND A LIBERAL

April 3, 2017

Liberals can, and will, find a way to offend themselves no matter what!  For a liberal to become upset, he or she (Ze, Hu, Mx, Ne or whatever pronoun they have chosen) simply needs to see or hear something other than what they want to see or hear…anything.  If they don’t retreat to a safe space, the fragile pastels immediately grab their ‘at the ready’ colored markers and cardboard.  They make signs, tweet their angst and take up arms in opposition to sanity.

Take for example the following billboard:

Fake news? Perhaps. But the Washington Post, USA Today, CNN, Huffington Post, Time.com and many other MSM and Internet sites carried some form of the story accompanied by pictures of protesters offended by the words of the billboard. Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites spread the word of the advertiser’s hatred for girls and women. “It’s never OK to throw rocks at girls” they said. Instead of accepting the message of the advertisement by Spicer Greene Jewelers, they took to the streets in condemnation of the company that toyed with a well-known saying.

In this case, the hell-bent-for-divisiveness coalition took a few words on display out of context and allowed the syllables to fuel their anger. The true message is pretty obvious to anyone of common intellect. It’s even within the picture. We’re not talking large granite projectiles or even dirt clods hurled at innocent children. They’re gemstones, you useless idiots. Women and girls generally like elegant and colorful adornments.

However, liberals can find anger where there is no reason for it. How can they do this? It is inherent within the doctrine they accept. <link>

They, the snowflake lemmings of the left, condemn normal minded individuals for wanting biological females to use one public restroom, locker room or shower facility and expecting that men use others. They use hate words like homophobe and bigot to describe people who choose to have gender specific privacy areas. They become hostile as they try to denounce relative normalcy in the name of civility. (It’s the inclusive and compassionate liberal way.)

However, let a one of them discover an obvious sexual pervert or known molester, (allowed by the social engineering laws they promote) within what was once their personal space. That’s the time they want the individual arrested for following their liberal directives.

Liberals are easy to offend and anger. Just be reasonable; use logic.  It will get to them every time.
