Coming soon: No Russia collusion (from Trump campaign at least)

Tucker Carlson breaks down the details that are soon to come out.

Green New Deal insanity

Ben Shapiro breaks down Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Green New Deal, because ultimately it's a broken, idiotic plan that would destroy America.  Not surprising coming from a socialist, but sadly, something a bunch of low information voters (and apparently Democratic presidential candidates) buy into.

Here's more details:

Ilhan Omar, racist or misunderstood?

With a history of Antisemitism, Ilhan Omar is trying to back peddle via a weak apology for her latest antisemitic remarks on Twitter (who clearly, and counter to their own stated rules, are not going to ban her).

But she's a racist and is not being called out by enough people, particularly within her own Democratic party.

Media accountability goes beyond Convington students

Tim Pool (aka Timcast) discusses the mistakes the media made on the Covington kids and in other instances where they have literally destroyed lives and why they need to be held accountable.  Maybe they now will be, given what lawyers for the Covington kids have begun doing.

Five lessons for America from the death of Mice Utopia (Saturday Learning Series)

Yes, Mice Utopia was a real thing.  That is, until it died. We can learn a lot about ourselves from the death of Mice Utopia.  First, here's the background on what Mice Utopia actually was.

There are some eerie similarities between Mice Utopia and human society (and of particular interest , America).

(1) Population growth - it's really interesting that despite the ability to expand, the population growth just stops.  This is a reflection of human societies where in societies with an abundance of resources or wealth (i.e. first world nations) birth rates start to sink below replacement levels of death rates.  In short Utopia does not lead to equilibrium but rather decay.  Why is that?  Perhaps as humans, and apparently also for rodents, we need a biological imperative to strive to achieve something productive (the propagation of the family).  If there is no hurdles, the imperative to struggle to achieve disappears.  Ultimately socialism therefore, with it's stated goal of unlimited comfort and care for all, is doomed to failure.

(2) The breakdown of social bonds leading to cliques (or gangs) that fought each other for seemingly no reason is representative of a lack of purpose leading to compartmentalization of purpose around false flags.  In humans think voting blocks which the Democrats end up co-opting into their quest for power - women, African Americans, Hispanics, LGBT voters etc.  Except instead of attacking each other physically (excluding ANTIFA) and without purpose, the attacks are political and politically motivated by those who want to guide the behaviors towards specific, politically self-motivated objectives.

(3) The clustering of rodents around overcrowded spots instead of expanding into open areas is an interesting development that is not as easy to understand.  That is unless you look at the social disarray around it - killing each other and unrestricted breeding and random violence clearly causes a need for a collective grouping for protection.  It's a safety mechanism driven by social decay.  In humans cities are crowded because it's where the jobs are and vast open areas of the country are left pristine because no one wants to expand into that area.  It becomes a self fulfilling situation - more clustering leads to more radical, irrational behavior which leads to more clustering.  In the case of humans it seemingly also leads to more entrenched rationalization of political beliefs as cities become more and more liberal to the point of complete irrationality.

(4) Even in mouse societies there was a group of elites ("the beautiful ones") becoming detached and separating themselves from society completely.  The wealthy elite in America are seemingly equally detached from the rest of society.  If society is failing the desire to become apart from it is understandable.  A more noble goal would be to try to fix the problem.  However, in human societies, having become detached from society, the ability to foment reasonable solutions for it is probably lost.  The disconnect is too great.  This is why you see wealthy people embracing socialism as if it were a cure-all without understanding that it is either a path to their own demise or else a belief that they are above the solutions they wish to impose on others because they are the "beautiful ones".

(5) It appears the once the population dwindled to pre-dystopia levels, the behavioral changes had become permanent and the society was unable to recover itself and regrow.  That might be the scariest lesson of all.  It is possible that societies from Rome, to the Mongols to Great Britain to America are not able to escape the inevitability of self-destruction.

MUST READ: Virginia Democrats call on Lt. Governor to resign - it's a set up!

Virginia's state Democrats are trying to save their control of the state in the face a three scandals involving the state's top Democrats.  Virginia's top 3 political figures, all Democrats, have all been implicated in either sexual or racial scandals.  Here's a quick breakdown:

Virginia Democrats have called on the African American Lt. Governor to resign, but not the white Governor. Conservatives have rightly seized on the inherent racism of those calls but they have overlooked the real problem. It's a set up.

If all three Democrat politicians were to resign, all three positions would be appointed by the Republican state legislature, thereby flipping the state to a Republican controlled state.

Here's the trap: that's only true if all three resign at the same time.  The Democrats however, by only calling on the Lt. Governor to resign are plotting for the governor to appoint a new Lt. Governor, free of scandal, before having to step down himself, thereby insulating themselves from losing control of the governorship. Then, when the inevitable does happen and all three of the scandal-plagued politicos are gone, a Democrat will still be in power due to the appointment and he or she can refill the other positions with more Democrats.

It's cynical. It's calculated and deliberate. It's being overlooked.  A triple impeachment should be on the Virginia state assembly agenda or more Democrats will be replace the disgraced trio and nothing will change.

President Trump's 2019 State of the Union

unfiltered by the media, here is the full 2019 presidential state of the union, which apparently had a 76% approval rating by viewers.

Backlash on Joe Rogan interview

Joe Rogan has had a lot of great interviews on his podcast (Jordan Peterson for example).  But when he recently had Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on, he either badly missed an opportunity in the discussion of banning Alex Jones or else chickened out on following up on Dorsey's non-answer.  There's been a backlash against Joe Rogan resulting from the mishandling.

Mark Dice discusses the details:

I won't go so far as to say Rogan is an idiot.  Anyone can miss an opportunity or make a mistake.  This was certainly a fumble by Rogan, but I think he deserves a chance to redeem himself.  That said, hopefully he does so soon.

What is the Learn To Code meme?

This video explains it, starting with the specific details at roughly 3:30.

Fake News exposed

I've been swamped with personal things the last month or so and have not been able to post very much.  I have a lot of good essay-type writing planned that I just have not gotten around to doing. 

But I don't want to leave my blog dormant so I'm going to try to fill the gap until my life returns to a normal pace with videos and links to important material.

Today, a video showing how the media jumped the gun on the Covington teens in their haste to attack president Trump and his supporters.  They apologize, they don't care, in fact they so want their narrative to be true, anything that refutes it gets ignored.

This is the tripe that passes for information.  This is the decayed and toxic state of the mainstream media today.  When you see the truth you have to question every narrative they provide as potentially fake news.

Friday Musical Interlude - Gimme Chocolate

This should get your attention.  From 2014, Japanese Heavy Metal/J-Pop band BabyMetal performing Gimme Chocolate.  It's strange but catchy and it will definitely keep your attention.

Media wants to gatekeep president Trump's speech.

I didn't want to get too far into the media reaction to president Trump's speech but there is some scary stuff that they were suggesting as is summarized well in this video, which is otherwise primarily focused on fact-checking Chuck Schumer.

The whole video is great and offers some wonderful debunking of Schumer and his twin wicked-witch-looking response last night.  It's worth watching entirely but the first roughly 2 minutes focus on the media reaction that is tantamount to wanting the power of overt censorship.

It's interesting that Chris Cuomo is willing to say president Trump is not speaking propaganda.  I guess his feud with Don Lemon is his primary cause these days.  But in fighting that battle he has resorted to occasionally spitting facts.

But the rest of the media, deciding to be gatekeepers on what the president wants to say to the people of America is vile. It's also ironic that they want to be gatekeepers on speech (and really, thought) but do not want the president to be a gatekeeper on immigration.  The latter is Constitutional, the former is not, and more importantly it is unethical and immoral.

President Trump's televised address

Last night the president made a televised address and if I recall correctly this is the first time he's done it (I'm not including his State of The Nation speeches to congress).  Given the government partial shutdown over the impasse on the border wall, the administration must have felt there was some urgency to address the issue and share the president's side of the story. Otherwise the president could have remained with Twitter as the primary source of his arguments.

I've maintained that the president should be doing this type of address more often.  Yes, it's scripted which is not his forte.  It's also true that it gives the Democrats a last word rebuttal and the networks a chance to claim he's lying again (and yes that happened).  But it is an opportunity for the president to talk, unfiltered and uninterrupted by the media (I'm looking at you Fake Jim Acosta), and at 9 or so minutes, highly focused and specific.  It's a golden opportunity that's been underutilized by the president so far.

Maybe the president was holding this in reserve and had always planned on shifting the battlefront in order to keep Democrats and the media off balance.  That would be a smart reason for holding off.  You can see that when you see the response by Pelosi and Schumer who looked like a pair of aliens just discovering life on earth in their response.  Or perhaps, the president felt that by holding addresses in abeyance that when he does it, it carries added weight resulting from the rarity of it's use.  Both are good reasons, and even if it was just a preference for Twitter, the timeliness of the change serves both those points and does so in regards to probably his signature campaign issue.

Here's the president's address:

And how did the Democrats respond? With lies and a cringe-worthy lack of charisma and empathetic engagement.

I know a lot of people looking at that were thinking of the painting American Gothic, but in a comic vein, I see it more as this:

Nancy Pelosi's own border consists of underlings

The guy who set up the GoFundMe page for the public to provide private, non-governmental funding for a border wall went to collect a buck from Nancy Pelosi who jokingly said she'd accept a buck for the wall.

Ironicaly, he ran into a gatekeeper, because Nancy Pelosi just can't allow anyone coming into her office, she has to choose who is allowed in to speak to her. That's hilarious.

In case you missed the irony, she's using a wall of associates to block entry.  Apparently Nancy Pelosi is irony impaired. 

Saturday Learning Series - a take down of Bird Box

Netflix recent hit Bird Box is apparently a woke movie about, among other things, race.  Youtuber Black Pilled takes it apart.

I already watched this movie and despite definitely noticing most of what Black Pilled mentions, I managed to set it aside and focus on the story, and for the most enjoy it.  But it is getting increasingly harder to do so with movies of late.  Honestly I don't want watching a movie to be a chore but it is approaching that point.  At some point I expect to retreat into computer gaming until they come for that full force as well.

The Patreon Exodus is going into high gear.

Dave Rubin and Jordan Peterson today announced they are leaving Patreon for politically motivated censorship, effective January 15th, 2019.  This is a major decision for both men.  Wherever they end up, and others who have been barred from the Patreon platform whom you might follow, follow them there.

If you have your own Patreon account, I urge you to cancel it as I have, as well.

ABC News caught lying about president Trump's position on the shutdown and wall

ABC News, like CNN, is fake news.  By fake news I am using it as shorthand for not factual, just the way the media malformed the term alt-right to equate to Nazis (who by nature are socialists, therefore anathema to conservative positions). 

Watch this video and tell me truthfully that you don't see any ill-intent in the news piece discussed.  And if you truly believe that, then you have to admit at least, that these journalists are really, really incompetent.  If you the believe the latter, that too should raise alarm bells for you.

How can you make smart decisions when you are badly (and in all likelihood, deliberately) misinformed?
