The Kavanaugh Circus continues

President Trump late Friday called for a one week or less FBI supplementary investigation before the vote to make Brett Kavanaugh a Supreme Court Justice after a very divided 11-10 subcommittee and recommendation from RINO Jeff Flake.  If it hadn’t been abundantly obvious before this entire fiasco began, the feral left has shown their true colors more clearly than ever before to the ordinary citizen.

What’s most worrying about this entire charade is how divided the country is about it.  It is becoming increasingly difficult to communicate with the other side, or even agree upon what we are all seeing.  As Scott Adams has eluded to many times, it seems as if the country is watching two different movies at the same time, living in two different realities.  Where one side is incredulous that a man and his reputation has been attacked and destroyed so viciously with empty, evidence-less accusations, the other side cheers on the witch hunt demanding justice as if it were clear as day he did something wrong.  The basic tenets of the rule of law are at stake here.  Are we a country that believes one is innocent until proven guilty, or have we morphed into a Bolshevist style government that would rather unjustly punish 9 innocent people to catch 1 true criminal, if there even was one?

Consider too, for a moment, the unequal distribution of penalties and investigation doled out for one side versus the other.  An ordinary citizen can come forward, vaguely claim sexual misconduct 30 years earlier, and demand an FBI investigation days before a major vote without any evidence whatsoever, and the RINOs bend to her will.  Mountains of evidence can be presented against one Hillary R Clinton and it’s brushed aside with zero repercussions whatsoever.  Do they really think this will end well?  Do they really think ordinary citizens will tolerate this unequal balance of justice forever?  Do they really think ordinary citizens will continue to respect the rule of law when they see how carelessly it is treated and ignored at what should be the most respected level of responsibility in the government as public servants?

My only hope at this point is that when they don’t find anything they come down with hard justice against Ford.  False and empty accusations must be punished severely.  A false rape accusation can ruin a life.  Ask the Duke lacrosse team.  If we’re going to take an investigation seriously from a woman who can barely remember anything from the experience, and constantly confuse details and misremember things in general, then she should be justly punished.  Because one should not be rewarded for bad behavior.  For those asking “what possible reason would Ford have to lie?” I offer you exhibit A, just one of several gofundme pages opened on Ford’s behalf.

Couple this with the inevitable book deal and national tour of interviews and she’s carved out a pretty lucrative charade for herself.  Is this the America we really want to live in?  Where one can make a fortune ruining someone’s life with zero evidence whatsoever?  I really hope this is the tipping point for centrists.  That they see the extent to which the left will go to sabotage and destroy any shred of decency or peaceful government proceedings.  Vote them all out.  They are tearing this country apart.

When this vote finally does go through, and Kavanaugh is actually confirmed, the silver lining here is he will never forget this experience.  I’m sure it will be in the front of his mind with every decision he ever rules on in the Supreme Court.  He will fight harder than ever to preserve the Constitution and hopefully undo decades of attacks against it from a left who has become increasingly violent and extreme in their actions.

Google in China

About the only honest thing Google has done recently is remove “don’t be evil” from their code of conduct.  As of now Google is banned from China because of the Draconian laws China has put in place restricting free speech.  Those days may be numbered.  Via Daily Mail:

Google’s secretive plans in China are attracting renewed scrutiny from privacy advocates.

The tech giant is said to be building a prototype version of a censored Chinese search engine that links users’ activity to their personal phone number, according to the Intercept.

In doing so, it would be able to comply with the Chinese government’s censorship requirements, increasing the chances that such a product would launch there in the future.

Recent reports have suggested Google plans to build a censored version of its search engine in China, as part of a project called ‘Dragonfly.’

The app would have to comply with China’s rigid censorship laws, which would mean restricting access to content that government officials consider unfavorable.

Search terms about human rights, democracy, religion and peaceful protests will be blocked from the app.

Freedom of speech should be one issue that both the left and the right can unite on.  Increasingly you’re seeing a call for increased censorship by those on the left to police so called “hate speech” or really anything that offends them.  It was refreshing to hear that both Dems and Republicans are teaming up at least a little bit on this one.

Google (Alphabet) needs to be broken up.  And there needs to be a serious discussion on considering that action for the likes of Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook as well.  At this point in their respective domains they really are the only option to reach massive amounts of people.  They use freedom of speech when it’s convenient for them, then the whole “we’re a private company so we can do whatever we want” in cases where they want to censor certain groups of people.  Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube have all come (or are about to come) to congressional hearings relating to privacy and censorship concerns.  They all lie through their teeth because they’re not under oath and by and large these hearings have no legal bite to them at all so these executives could care less that they’re lying.  Most of them have most of Congress in their pockets anyway.

But it’s clear there are biases here, as much as they don’t want to admit it.  And they are social engineering, and they are affecting how people think and what they think of those running for office, etc.  If all of these censorship issues truly are glitches, as they like to claim, why is it only conservatives are the only ones ever targeted?  Why haven’t we heard outrage from the left that they’re the ones being censored?  Watch a snippet of the video below of Google’s executives lamenting President Trump’s glorious victory the day after the election.  That session, one of their TGIF sessions, was an hour long, the entire meeting of which was to complain that Trump won.  It’s very hard to believe that the entire board of Google abhors Trump yet claim to be neutral when it comes to running their own damn search engine.

China under Communist rule has been a disaster for its people.  There should be some law that prevents American companies from helping a despotic government police and censor its people.  “Don’t be evil” being removed I’m sure wasn’t taken lightly.  And I’m sure they know what they’re doing is dark, sinister, and purely a cash grab at the expense of individual freedom of those in China.  Awful.

There’s a reason freedom of speech is the first amendment.  It is the most important.  This isn’t even debatable.  We’ve taken our liberties for granted for far too long in this country.  It is out of control now and action needs to be taken soon or we’ll rue the day we remained asleep behind the wheel.

Elizabeth Warren is a communist

Elizabeth Warren introduced the “Accountable Capitalism Act” which of course isn’t capitalism at all and seeks to put more restrictions and add more regulation.  From her website:

  • Requires very large American corporations to obtain a federal charter as a “United States corporation,” which obligates company directors to consider the interests of all corporate stakeholders: American corporations with more than $1 billion in annual revenue must obtain a federal charter from a newly formed Office of United States Corporations at the Department of Commerce. The new federal charter obligates company directors to consider the interests of all corporate stakeholders – including employees, customers, shareholders, and the communities in which the company operates. This approach is derived from the thriving benefit corporation model that 33 states and the District of Columbia have adopted and that companies like Patagonia, Danone North America, and Kickstarter have embraced with strong results.
  • Empowers workers at United States corporations to elect at least 40% of Board members: Borrowing from the successful approach in Germany and other developed economies, a United States corporation must ensure that no fewer than 40% of its directors are selected by the corporation’s employees.
  • Restricts the sales of company shares by the directors and officers of United States corporations: Top corporate executives are now compensated mostly in company equity, which gives them huge financial incentives to focus exclusively on shareholder returns. To ensure that they are focused on the long-term interests of all corporate stakeholders, the bill prohibits directors and officers of United States corporations from selling company shares within five years of receiving them or within three years of a company stock buyback.
  • Prohibits United States corporations from making any political expenditures without the approval of 75% of its directors and shareholders: Drawing on a proposal from John Bogle, the founder of the investment company Vanguard, United States corporations must receive the approval of at least 75% of their shareholders and 75% of their directors before engaging in political expenditures. This ensures any political expenditures benefit all corporate stakeholders.
  • Permits the federal government to revoke the charter of a United States corporation if the company has engaged in repeated and egregious illegal conduct: State Attorneys General are authorized to submit petitions to the Office of United States Corporations to revoke a United States corporation’s charter. If the Director of the Office finds that the corporation has a history of egregious and repeated illegal conduct and has failed to take meaningful steps to address its problems, she may grant the petition. The company’s charter would then be revoked a year later – giving the company time before its charter is revoked to make the case to Congress that it should retain its charter in the same or in a modified form.

What Elizabeth Warren wants to do here is create yet another government office to regulate corporations here in America, to centralize power over any corporation receiving greater than $1 billion in annual revenue.  The wording is so opaque and up for interpretation.  “The new federal charter obligates company directors to consider the interests of all corporate stakeholders – including employees, customers, shareholders, and the communities in which the company operates.”  What does that even mean?  Consider the interests?  Isn’t that done by necessity already?  If a customer is not happy with a product they will simply choose to buy elsewhere.  An employee can leave companies if they so choose.  With such wishy-washy rules who knows how an infraction can be interpreted and then like that your charter is removed.  Meaning what?  The company is done altogether?  The government completely seizes it?  That’s an awful lot of power for the government to have, and to control ALL industries.

This is yet another step closer to full blown communism.  Centralizing power to control all industries is not a good thing.  It has never worked.  And there are much better ways to go about reforming the problems with corporations.  I actually like some of the proposals in here, mainly the stock option clause and the political contribution bit.  Those make sense and are a good way to control how a corporation operates without seizing the company outright.  Further, what does she think will happen to business here if she actually passed this disaster?  What would the incentive be for corporations to remain here?

Which leads to the next point, which is she probably knows this has zero chance of ever passing but will help her succeed in winning the hearts of the feral-extreme left.  It’s virtue signaling, plain and simple.  What politicians do best; blather on about x, y, and z and preaching about major reformations but knowing it’ll never happen.  She claims she’s not running in 2020 but I don’t believe her for a second.

The best thing that could happen to this country would be to drastically reduce the size of government.  De-centralization serves to stabilize a country.  To use some terminology from NN Taleb large, centralized governments are inherently fragile.  In order to reduce the chance of a major black swan event that could lead to total government collapse, reducing this central power is key.  Name one industry that was ever run better and more efficiently when under increased government control.  The education system has been a disaster since the government took control.  What more is there to say about health care.  Aerospace is another great example.  How many times were we told it’s impossible to launch re-usable rockets?  Now SpaceX launches rockets for a tenth of the cost they previously cost, after finally being given the chance to compete with the very limited private partners they allowed.

Pirates of the Caribbean II: Welcome to Venezuela

Lawlessness abounds in socialist nations.  I don’t think bringing back piracy to the Caribbean was what they had in mind.  The Washington Post actually does a pretty good exposé on this.

There have been reports of piracy over the past 18 months near Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti and St. Lucia. But nowhere has the surge been more notable, analysts say, than off the coast of Venezuela.

An economic crisis in the South American country has sent inflation soaring toward 1 million percent, making food and medicine scarce. Malnutrition is spreading; disease is rampant; water and power grids are failing from a lack of trained staff and spare parts. Police and military are abandoning their posts as their paychecks become nearly worthless. Under the socialist government of President Nicolás Maduro, repression and corruption have increased.

The conditions are compelling some Venezuelans to take desperate action.

One Venezuelan port official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to address official corruption, said that Venezuelan coast guard officers have been boarding anchored vessels and demanding money and food. He said commercial ships, in response, are increasingly anchoring farther off the coast, and turning off their motors and lights to avoid being seen at night.

It’s important to remember that this could happen to us.  Socialism is often times a slow creep.  It’s part of the reason there was such a huge outcry to Obamacare.  In the United States, health care is about 20% of the gross domestic product.  Thankfully, we’ve elected a President who recognizes this disaster and has tried to dismember it, or encourage Congress to do so.

Venezuela turned to socialism in 1998 with the election of Hugo Chavez.  He redistributed land to the poor and in 2007 took over many of the major oil projects.  Oil is half of the country’s GDP and accounts for nearly 100% of its exports.  Price control, a heavily government controlled economy, and plummeting oil prices have wrecked what should be a prosperous nation.  Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world.  There is no reason they should be floundering this badly, or having to cross into Colombia to buy simple necessities such as toilet paper and milk.

Forbes.com has a nice little slideshow here which highlights many other countries that have tried socialism and failed.  The dumbing down of the populace is one of the greatest injustices we have ever seen.  There should be absolutely no reason socialism and communism are as popular as they are, especially among millennials.  Via The Washington Times:

The majority of millennials would prefer to live in a socialist, communist or fascist nation rather than a capitalistic one, according to a new poll.

In the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation’s “Annual Report on U.S. Attitudes Toward Socialism,” 58 percent of the up-and-coming generation opted for one of the three systems, compared to 42 percent who said they were in favor of capitalism.

The most popular socioeconomic order was socialism, with 44 percent support. Communism and fascism received 7 percent support each.

Let that sink in.  This falls directly on us and our educational system.  This isn’t altogether surprising as the vast majority of academia consists of far left professors and administrators.  While immigration is our most glaring problem right now, reforming the education system is just as important though a much longer process.

Let us not forget the horrors of socialism.  Nationalizing major industries and redistributing wealth always leads to disaster.  The faster we can leave industry to the free markets and disband welfare and other government programs that force redistribution of wealth the safer and better off we will be.

The Most Dangerous Game

The left is crossing into dangerous territory.  It’s not just hyperbole when I say they are pushing us ever closer to a civil war.  They are continually attacking Constitutional liberties that were set in place to protect all citizens.

For a long time the second amendment was their issue du jour.  Their ultimate goal is to ban all firearms, an incredibly naive and short sighted move.  The power players on the left use the majority of the left as “useful idiots” to further their actual agenda.  The useful idiots push the narrative under the guise that they think everyone will be safer if nobody has weapons.  This is a common tactic we’ll see throughout our dealings with the Cabal and the agenda they are pushing.  Whether it’s guns, free speech, or other forms of indoctrination they will continually use the left to push these points under the guise of a different reason.

Anybody who has studied any history knows that disarming the populace is not the path towards a safer society but rather towards an oppressive regime and genocide.  There are well known examples in Russia, China, and Germany.  Great Britain likes to boast they are basically gun-free and how is it going for them?  Or Venezuela?  Hitler famously said, “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police.“.

This issue tends to creep up after another shooting.  Always in a gun-free zone, but that’s besides the point.  Of course, only when it suits their agenda.  Did you hear about the 72 people shot, 13 people killed in Chicago this weekend?  Me neither.  MSM will not report this stuff on a grand scale.

At the moment, they’ve moved up to attacking our greatest freedom, which is of course freedom of speech.  This past week has been a circus, with much buzz about InfoWars being deplatformed on Facebook, Google, Apple, and Spotify.  Again, this is a blatant attempt of the left to suppress free speech, and more specifically speech they disagree with.  A few sites have stuck up for Alex Jones, notably Twitter (surprisingly).

How do they think this will end?  We know what the ultimate goal of the Cabal is in this case, but your ordinary, garden variety left leaning person agreeing with this is troubling.  How short sighted are these people?  Do they really see that this precedent could someday (and inevitably) be used against them?  We already see it now.  When Obama was in office and they had control of the House and Senate they used tactics and many executive orders to get what they wanted.  Now that the other side uses similar tactics all they do is complain.

So called “hate speech”, a completely absurd yet clever spin concocted by the left is what needs to be protected most of all.  It’s easy to defend the stuff you agree with, not so much the stuff you don’t want to hear.  It’s clear many on the left are short sighted so they cannot see the implications of their actions when they cry for the government or big tech companies to ban websites and personalities they do not like.  And given that big tech is almost completely comprised of left leaning types at this point in time it’s easy for them to suppress voices and opinions they disagree with.  Facebook and Twitter have recently come under attack for selectively censoring viewpoints they do not agree with.

I say again, how do they think this will end?  Do they really think the portion of the country that is selectively policed by the other side, while they’re being told “hey it’s for your own good” is just going to sit there and take it when they see the rules used differently for some people as compared to others?  We’re continually told “don’t worry, we can be trusted in how we police” yet there is zero evidence they can be trusted and a mountain of evidence on the contrary.  We know this to be entirely true.  Recently, conservative journalist Candace Owens retweeted something racist NY Times journalist Sarah Jeong wrote about white people, but replaced “white” with “Jewish” and “black”.  What was the result?

Twitter later responded by saying it was a mistake.  Right.  Funny how these mistakes only seem to happen to people on the right.  This is the double standard I speak about all the time.  As if the useful idiots won’t have this turned against them once the purge is complete.

Rightly so, conservatives are pushing alt-tech to create new platforms that truly respect freedom of speech.  Sites like BitChute and Gab have made some nice inroads but have a long way to go.  Sadly, even these sites are not entirely safe from leftist policing.  Microsoft has threatened to stop hosting Gab due to supposed “hate speech” posts.  They truly are pushing for such segregation that nothing will be able to be shared between those who believe in freedom and those who want more government control and suppression.

This will not end well.  Those who still believe in the principles this country were founded on will only take so much before they finally snap and hit back.  It is imperative we try and solve this peacefully if at all possible.  I wish I could say for sure that this was achievable, but the violent and oppressive tactics the left have been using will force the hand of those reasonable people on the other side eventually.  Perhaps it’s as good a time as any to remind ourselves of Rudyard Kipling’s poem, The Wrath of the Awakened Saxon.

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy — willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

Universal Basic Income program scrapped in Canada

Ontario is ending their universal basic income program over a year earlier than originally intended because it wasn’t tenable.  Via The Daily Wire:

Universal basic income is “clearly not the answer for Ontario families,” explained Children, Community, and Social Services Minister Lisa MacLeod, adding that the program was “not sustainable.”

Though the welfare program was intended to last three years, it will be coming to an end this week, announced MacLeod. She promised the program’s exit would be done “ethically” and would provide “more detail at a later date.”

Roughly 4,000 Canadians, regardless of unemployment status, are enrolled in the program. “[A] single person could have received up to about $17,000 a year, minus half of any income he or she earned. A couple could have received up to $24,000 per year. People with disabilities could have received an additional $6,000,” reports CBC.

MacLeod was lambasted for pulling the plug on the unsustainable system by Canadian politicians and program recipients. Andrea Horwath, the Ontario provincial NDP leader, for example, said the call to end the program was “shameful.”

“And this callous, mean-spirited premier sees this as a priority? Making poverty worse? Making life worse for families? Absolutely disgraceful. Shameful,” blasted Horwath.

Dave Cherkewski, a program recipient, complained, “I had a three-year plan and now it’s gone.”

As President Trump and his brand of politics continues to spread and fundamentally alter the political landscape, I suspect people like Andrea Horwath will slowly fade away, and not a moment too soon.  Socialism is one of those ideologies that is easy to talk about how great it would be for everyone, but those who spread this dangerous message rarely ever have to suffer the consequences of their virtue signaling.  Sorry, Andrea, but it is not “shameful” or “mean spirited” to end a program that would bankrupt the country.  Isn’t it possible that MacLeod may have some concern for the rest of the country and those paying into the system in the first place?  And Mr Cherkewski, perhaps you should re-tinker your 3 year plan to one that doesn’t depend on free handouts to succeed?  Just a thought.

It’s been said many times before but universal basic income at this juncture isn’t sustainable.  Theoretically in the future as more automation and robotics develop maybe that will be a different story.  Even so, is it the best thing to do?  Will rewarding slothful behavior really yield positive benefits down the road?  The entire argument against Communism and Socialism is that people want to be justly compensated for the work they put in.  Not this “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs” Marxist BS.  It is far too easy to job the system and human nature is clearly more suitable for a more capitalistic ideology.  The gall of Andrea Horwath to call it shameful.  Where exactly does she think this money is coming from?  Yet another black mark on our educational system that the most basic of economic principles isn’t taught properly or entirely ignored in schools.

Out In the Open

Perhaps one of the biggest revelations over the past 2+ years that hasn’t been talked about too much is the very fact that whatever you want to call them, The Deep State, the Cabal, etc etc are out in the open.  Five years ago you’d be laughed out of the room and called a tin foil hat conspiracy theorist for even mentioning anything remotely different than the official narrative.  Now, a lot of people trust Alex Jones more than the MSM.  Rightfully so.  And you are no longer laughed at given how many things have been confirmed.

This is honestly probably the biggest problem the Deep State has.  It’s no longer a very tiny fringe minority of people who believe there are un-elected forces running the country and the world.  And now that they’ve been largely exposed, it’s impossible to shut the lid on this ever again.

This obviously isn’t some great revelation but the Internet has changed everything.  It’s weened people off mainstream media to get news.  It’s awakened a ton of people to untold truths and given an outlet for people to vent, share information, and red pill normies.  Now, a majority of Russians think a secret global government exists.  Populist movements are on the rise.  And with more exposure comes more boldness.  Previously untouchable people are being outed for their heinous crimes.  Harvey Weinstein and the whole #metoo movement stuff never would’ve happened five years ago.  It couldn’t.  And that is very much only the tip of the iceberg, and rated G compared to other shit going on there.

Defending our way of life is no easy task, and not for everybody.  It is the most noble effort you can embark on.  There are true patriots in the anon movement, on the chans, doing the ridiculous amount of grunt work and digging to unearth all of this information.  It’s just as important to share it.  Do not assume that because you’ve read it on your site(s) of choice that there’s no point in re-sharing it.  It’s part of the reason this website exists.  Your sphere of influence is different than everyone else’s, and you can get entirely different swaths of normies to wake up to what’s going on behind the scenes.

If you’re looking to dive in, or dip a toe, r/greatawakening isn’t a terrible place to start.  Voat.co is another.  Just be warned.  You can venture down a dark rabbit hole.  One that many are afraid to confront.  But turning away would be worse.  The Deep State is out in the open now, and they will fight literally to the death to try and keep their secrets hidden.  They control everything.  Hollywood is but one of the many industries they control.  The disgusting stuff they do to keep people in line and obedient is abhorrent.  They know that they would be finished if the normal populace ever discovered what they were doing.
