Trump Cruz and Whining RINO Snowflakes

Okay, I’ve waited long enough. I knew Ted Cruz’s speech would be “controversial” because, as the old saying goes, he was between the devil and the deep blue sea. Anyone paying attention knows there is no place in the current republican party or the Trump mafia for a principled conservative. If he came out and endorsed Trump many, if not all of his loyal supporters would be besides themselves with anger. That anger would be much deserved in my mind. At the very least he would have been castigated, and deservedly so, for not defending his family.

On the other hand if he didn’t endorse Trump the Trump mafia long knives would be gleefully unsheathed. Having Ted’s father killing JFK was never enough for the likes of Trump and his supporters. Accusing Cruz’s wife of having as many affairs as Trump was also never enough. Trumps currency is lies, deception and misdirection. He is without a doubt a career politician who would now be welcomed as a fellow in either party.

The level of vitriol and hate leveled at Cruz while stunning is to be expected from the media and the Trump mafia. It is after all their main and frankly, only currency. That such hate flows from supposed conservatives speaks volumes about just how closely the republican party has morphed into today’s hate dominated, victim centered democratic party.

I have read and re-read the transcript of Ted Cruz’s speech at the convention. I can’t seem to find the nasty, self centered, suicidal or controversial part of it. In my mind he covered most of the important themes.

Despite all the vile things about Cruz and his family that Trump participated in or remained remained silent about towards the end of the campaign, Cruz congratulated Trump on his victory.

He passionately illustrated such conservative principles as freedom and the value of human life.

He urged everyone to not sit this election out. Go, he said, and vote for the candidates who will defend the Constitution.

He called on conservatives to unite to keep the cancerous Clinton out of the White House.

Apparently he couldn’t stop his “verbal assault” there. He then had the temerity to offer such apparently controversial comments as:

…America is more than just a land mass between two oceans, America is an ideal. A simple, yet powerful ideal. Freedom matters.

For much of human history government power has been the unavoidable constant in life. Government decrees and the people obey, but not here. We have no king or queen, we have no dictator, we the people constrain government.

Our nation is exceptional because it was built on the five most beautiful and powerful words in the English language, “I want to be free.”

Freedom means the right to keep and bear arms, and to protect your family.

Freedom means that every human life is precious and must be protected.

We will unite the party; we will unite the country by standing together for shared values by standing for liberty.

If you love our country, and love our children as much as you do, stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom, and to be faithful to the constitution.

The last quote seems to be one of the largest sore spots for the Trump mafia. It is, they say, proof Cruz was selfish and petulant. They see it as Cruz rejecting Trump. If they honestly believe that Cruz did not extend support to Trump after hearing these words then there is only one logical conclusion. They must believe that Trump does not love this country, his children and will neither defend freedom or be faithful to the Constitution. Cruz speaks more eloquently than Trump but his message did not sound drastically different that what Trump has been saying. It was not the subservient, slavishly ringing endorsement the Trump mafia sought but it was as close to an endorsement a principled conservative could give to an ethically challenged, highly questionable candidate.

For such heretical ideas he was booed, in classic liberal fashion, off the stage and his wife had to be escorted out of the building for her safety. No further proof is needed that Trump and Clinton supporters are not all that different.

One commentator whose name, sadly, escapes me called the reaction to Cruz’s speech the republicans “God moment”. He was referring to the Democratic convention a few years back when the convention attendees booed loudly and en mass not once but three times the mention of God. I believe he was correct. The republican party has effectively been co-opted by that same wing of the liberal establishment. Four years from now I fully expect the attendees at the republican convention will be booing God as well.

A party that believes being told to “vote your conscience” and “defend the Constitution” is problematic is no party I choose to belong to. The truth is, as another old saying goes, a long game. I suspect history will remember Cruz’s speech somewhat differently than it has been portrayed so far. I can not wait till then. On Monday I will change my affiliation from Republican to independent. Looking back I think it is something I should have done years ago.

The Evil Stepsisters, Porn and Black Lives Matter/Nation of Islam

Many years ago in college I wrote a research paper on the porn industry. Not the product but the all the associated services and industries required to legalize, legitimize, produce, market and distribute the product. It was a great surprise to me to learn that the industry is far more than just the product it produces. It has its own language. It has its own customs. It has its own founding fathers. It has its own luminaries. It has its own holidays and it even has its own awards ceremonies. It also has tens of thousands of willing facilitators who sacrifice decency in search of the almighty dollar, power or, sadly, the perception of fame.

All of this came to mind as I was reading about the black lives matter and nation of islam morons spouting their hatred after the assassination of several Dallas police officers. In my minds eye all I could see was one of the evil stepsisters in Cinderella.

It occurred to me that blm/noi and the porn industry are birds of a feather. It is not a perfect match but, in my estimation, it’s damn close. One wraps itself in “freedom and the first amendment” the other in “racial justice.” The goals though are not to much different. Both seek the destruction of good and decent institutions and to profit there from. Both, frankly, are evil incarnate.

Blm and noi are nothing more than racial porn, period. They, like the porn industry, are built on a lie. The lie in the porn industry is that porn is a victim less “crime.” The blm/noi lie is that racism is structural and institutionalized within the United States. In either case the lie is easily refuted if one is willing to simply see the abundant evidence available to any one with an hour to spare for honest research.

Porn and blm/noi both seek, and require, a certain amount of simple minded foot soldiers in order to survive. These foot soldiers, often uninformed and willfully misguided by their leaders, see blm/noi or porn as the way to strike a blow against“the man” or to “fulfill their darkest fantasy”. They buy the lie and push the product whether its an unrealized sexual fantasy or perceived racial injustice without hesitation. They are so sure of their convictions that reality dare not intrude. In their minds there is no problem a riot or some KY can’t solve.

In both the porn industry and blm/noi the leaders hustle both the foot soldiers and the public to make a quick buck. Like the porn producer/distributor, Mssrs Jackson, Sharpton and the Kenyan have no interest in the victims of their products, degradation and racial hatred. The only thing that matters to them is market share or, how can I get more money, fame, TV face time, influence, government policies/contracts etc.

Sadly both the porn/blm/noi adherents are trapped in a vicious circle of their own choosing and they neither realize it nor I suspect would care if they did. This ever widening circle requires new and more drastic outrages and degradation as the “public” soon becomes desensitized by the standard fare offered by the porn/blm/noi pushers. One wonders if there is no line these purveyors of evil are not willing to cross. Personally, I don’t think there is one. Evil knows no bounds and many of those in the top levels of porn/blm/noi are as evil as you can get.

Clash Of Civilizations

Much has been made of Donald Trumps “plans” to halt moslem immigration into the United States. It is a solid idea whose time is long past. The death worshiping cult of islam now has one full standing army on our soil and the Kenyan is desperately trying to double that before he gets out of office. Parts of Michigan now have moslem no go zones where men and women are segregated even in public. (Hello ACLU, SPLC where are you now?) Terrorist recruiting stations, otherwise known as mosques, are proliferating thanks to hundreds of millions of Saudi dollars being pumped into the subversion of America. Knowing this, the Kenyan smiles.

So why is this a big deal? Isn’t islam the religion of peace? Consider this fact before you cling bitterly to the safe, comforting delusion the Kenyan offers you. Moslems have been killing themselves and non-moslems as fast as they can for the last 1,400 years. Some estimates place the death toll over that time at 270 million. Let that sink in for a minute, then tell me islam is a religion of peace.

What further cements the danger of islam to normal, civilized life is that the koran is immutable. It is the only book they read. Moslems believe it is the verbatim word of allah. This means that the koran is absolutely perfect. Because it is already perfect anyone who seeks to “reform” islam is by definition an apostate. The koran provides only one punishment for apostasy, death. Because of this the cult of islam is reform proof. Let that sink in as well.

Some say that the Kenyan is simply not aware of the damage he is causing. He and his minions they say are simply practicing deep held believes of diversity and compassion. I expect they are correct although they have misidentified just who the Kenyans compassion runs deeply for, ie not America. Those of us who are not blinded by the liberal gobbledygook of the hate America first multiculturalism set saw this from the beginning. The Kenyan did not sit in a “church” that preached hate for twenty years by accident. Hate is an integral part of his psychological makeup, but that is another article.

Hate is also an integral part of islam. In the beginning of the koran, and yes I have read the filthy novel in its entirety, mohammed is all love and peace. Those words were written before the pedophilia loving mass murder garnered much of a following. Once his status as as prophet was secured by a ravenous, murderous army he revealed his true colors. To clear up any confusion about why he was “kind and gentle” in the beginning and a butchering child rapist in the last part of the koran, he simply wrote that his last word on any matter was the correct position. To make a long story short, the last half of the koran entirely repudiates the first half. The only use for the first half of the koran now is purely as propaganda.

The Kenyan and his accomplices have given the purest form of islam, ISIS etc, vast swaths of land from which to safely operate as well as weapons, oilfields and millions of priceless historical relics/artifacts with which to raise funds. The priceless treasures ISIS cannot sell they blow up. ISIS, following the islamic model of some twenty arab states engages in slavery and torture. According to ISIS genocide of Jews and non-believers is a high priority.

So what are we doing to “combat” ISIS? Aside from denying local fighters the weapons needed to defeat ISIS and the occasional show strikes, not much. Remember, at its core we are in a battle of ideologies. ISIS fighters do not mind dying as it is their only path to paradise. What is important to know is that the Kenyan does absolutely nothing to combat the ideology of ISIS. In 2011 the Kenyan sent out a memo ordering the removal of terms like jihad or any kind of linking of terror to islam be excised completely from the training materials of all federal law enforcement, military intelligence and agencies like the CIA and FBI. The Kenyan said this was done out of concern for multiculturalism. Right, and I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. This was done strictly to try and blind the public and hide the progress of his ideological brothers in arms.

Unsatisfied with the pace of Americas subversion the Kenyan accelerated a process started in the last Bush administration, that of eliminating those in government who understood the islamic threat and were actually dedicated to fighting it. Hundreds of Generals, Admirals, Navy Captains, Army and Air Force Colonels have been quietly booted out of the military to make way for more like minded minions. In the government proper anyone in open opposition to islam is removed while dozens of highly sensitive positions have been given to militant moslem brotherhood members. The amazing thing here is that none of this is a secret. It seems no one but the Kenyan, his vile minions and folks like me really cares.

It is also no secret that the vast majority moslems who have recently come to America refuse, sometimes violently, to assimilate. Assimilation is not their goal. They practice a stealth form of jihad. You need only to look at Dearborn, Michigan to see how it works. They create their own exclusive community then out breed everyone else. When you are allowed four wives who are all fed by welfare it isn’t as difficult as you might think. The infidels who will not leave right away are often harassed until they do leave. Once these invaders have created their no go zone they take over the local government. This allows them to further and more efficiently intimidate the remaining non believers. Once they are in control of local government they are safe to plan their terror acts knowing full well the Kenyans administration will do little to impede them.

So, the cult of islam is trying to militarily defeat us. It is trying to bury us in a wave of inbred murderous religious ideologues. The Kenyan, using the power of government he has and many powers he doesn’t have, forces the ISIS agenda on us at will. What can be done about it?

While Donald is not my guy, if he will actually stop importing terrorists into America, that would be a great start. I would go farther though. Much farther. Remember, this is a battle for civilization itself. If you are comfortable with unlimited brutality, rape, torture, raging unbridled hatred, animal sacrifice (halal meat), slavery, so called honor killings, murderous intolerance and pedophilia, just to name a few of islams ideal behaviors then you need do nothing, the Kenyan will cover for you.

I think any moslem who wants to remain in America and wants to proclaim the koran as the word of God needs to publicly and in writing sign a total refutation of the islamic principle of Tyqquia, the right and duty of the moslem to lie, cheat and steal from infidels in the advancement of islam. They then must publicly and in writing completely repudiate sharia law. Any who refuse these two commonsense measures should be deported instantly and their citizenship/naturalization/green cards etc permanently stripped from them. Any moslem found violating their commitment should suffer the aforementioned consequences. This should be a one strike and you’re out policy.

Furthermore, I would ban any immigration from any country that practices sharia law at any level, funds terrorism at any level, provides aid/comfort to terrorists at any level or harms Israel in any measurable way. I would work overtime to get as many other civilized countries in the world to follow our model as possible. Any country that did so would be rewarded by a thankful America.

I would also ban the blaring calls to prayer in public as well as any form of prayer that disrupts the public, ie filling a public street/sidewalk with asses in the air.

I would ban the cruelty to animals known as Halal meat.

In the public education system islam would be identified as the death worshiping cult that it is. The true and correct history of the worlds bloodiest religion would be taught without regard to “cultural sensitivity.” Having gone on a 1400 year murder spree this death cult deserves no sympathy.

Some will doubtlessly consider my ideas harsh. I admit they are and deservedly so. This is a war and unlike so many of the Kenyans supporters I don’t want to coexist with raping murderous suicide bombers. I prefer not to fight but when I have to fight, I fight to win. Whether you like it or not islam has declared open season on western civilization, that means you and your I-phone. They seek to drag you and me back the the place they have never left, the 6th century. I have no desire to go there or to force my grandchildren to live in such a hideous place or under such an evil “religion”. So I fight everywhere I can and with whatever I can. So should you.

And because I am so cruel no, you don’t get to cover your face with your burka on your drivers license photo. Get over it or get the hell out of my country.

Observations Of A Poll Manager Or Herbert 1 Utah 0

The first election I worked as a poll worker was Bush v Gore. Being brand new I was relegated to writing names in the poll book. I wrote a lot of names that day. Over the years I have worked most of the election cycles missing only a couple for personal reasons.

I find it fascinating that some people simply cannot, while at the polls, refrain from revealing just how devoted they are to their party. In my experience it is nearly always the democrats that feel the need to extol their virtue at being a lifelong party member. It is similarly true that it is nearly always the democrats that whine the loudest when, after three years, they still have not updated their ID and have to vote provisionally. Some, democrats all, even object to having to show ID to vote. I can’t help but wonder how fast they whipped out that ID when they applied for their welfare. I bet ID wasn’t an issue then.

The democratic party long ago fractured into a conglomeration of special interest groups who only vote based on one single issue. Republicans are now in the process of that kind of shattering, kind of. Instead of thirty or more highly charged special interest groups the republican party now has two branches, the establishment and the conservatives. The main difference and the greatest source of worry by those of us who see the establishment wing of the republican party running away from us as fast as they can (ie traditional conservatives) is that the republican party simply doesn’t have the voter discipline liberals seem to have.

Liberals, no matter how distasteful their parties candidate is in other respects (in the case of Utah, a man in drag), will pull the lever for him/her as long as there is a D behind the name. It is nothing more complicated than that. On election day in Utah, I saw for the first time the same phenomena taking shape in the governors race on the republican side.

Time after time I heard from republicans how loyal they were, as they pulled the lever for one of the best hidden establishment republicans in government, Gary Herbert. It was all I could do to stop myself from asking each of these proud party loyalists, are you really that stupid? Apparently they are, at least the eight percent that turned out to vote in my district. There in lies the crutch. No matter how many liberals come out to vote they all vote the same way. Not so with republicans. When the general election comes we will split our vote and dilute any impact we might have or even worse, not come out to vote.

I know several people who refused to come out and vote because Herbert was on the ballot and they felt, with some justification, they could not vote for the “RINO”. I tried to explain to them there was an alternative. Johnson may not have been a household name (I blame his campaign manager for that) but he offered a far more traditional, conservative agenda than the tax and spend, I’ll go anywhere and give you anything to get money, Herbert. If nothing else I said at least come out and vote down ticket to get some resistance to Herbert’s RINO agenda in place.

One of the proud democrats that voted at my precinct provided a clear example of the Herbert’s RINO credentials. Crossing over to vote for Herbert in the primary instead of the democrat she justified her vote saying that Herbert had fought for and got her and her fellow teachers a raise. To which I wanted to reply, “And he only raised your taxes six times to do it.” Alas, as a poll manager I was constrained to silence. Still, she is a classic victim of the system she is now employed in and will undoubtedly vote her party line in November. The fact that she is teaching children frightens the hell out of me. I do not know if America can survive another generation of useful idiots.

So now, to make a long story short, we in Utah get to vote in November on whether we will bankrupt our state by expanding Medicare under a Democrat or Republican governor. In either case our students will continue to solve simple math problems using 97 steps, ie Common Core. We will get legalized pot and all its attendant problems with either a democrat or republican governor. Both republican and democrat candidates will continue to turn our state into a magnet for illegal aliens by offering in state tuition, unlimited welfare, healthcare and drivers licenses to these criminals. Having gotten away with raising taxes six times already both the democrat and republican future governors will doubtlessly raise them again. I could go on and on but the careful reader should by now observes the pattern. To those of us who are paying attention is is clear.

Herbert 1 Utah 0.

Facebook, Guns and The Liberal Mindset

I only recently got my computer back. Seems my eight year old hard drive finally gave up the ghost. I took the opportunity to go on my Facebook page. Yes, I stayed off Facebook the whole three weeks I was computerless, you should try it. Anyway one of the first posts I see was in response to the Florida shooting. One of the people on my “friends” list posted a cartoon showing Wayne La Perrier and a brutish looking man labeled “Guns Inc” dragging a massive bag of profits, standing amid a sea of bloody bodies. The cartoonist has a smiling Wayne saying “Fortunately guns don’t kill people.” The cartoon, misleading as it was, generated an interesting exchange on my wall.

RJ is the individual on my “friends” list. I knew him casually through our employer. After hearing him wax semi eloquently on the glories and accomplishments of Sir Hillary Clinton I realized discretion was the better part of valor and basically avoided him. I never try to start an argument with liberals but I will not shy away either.

The exchange serves as a classic example of how liberals operate. I have recorded the entire thread/ conversation, word for word below. I will only use the participants initials to accord them anonymity. My comments are italicized.

Commenting on the cartoon;

M B: Be sure to list all the abortions too R J. All the drunk drivers that kill daily. All the drug companies. I could go on and on.

I don’t know MB but I know RJ and I don’t doubt he supports abortion on demand. I have to admit I’m not sure how drunk drivers or drug companies fit into the gun control debate. I wish he had gone on just long enough to make the connection for me.

R J: I’m not posting this pic to start up any mean spirited dialogue–keep your hate to yourselves.

Really? Linking the NRA to mass murder isn’t mean spirited? The direct implication that gun manufacturers use murder to profit isn’t mean spirited? What then was your purpose for posting this cartoon, a demonstration of compassion? Notice the knee jerk reflex to classify perceived disagreement as hate.

M B: R J what do you call this picture? It’s pure hate toward gun owners. Your such a hipocrit.

Unless you are a rabid gun control fanatic MB’s description of the cartoon is spot on.

RJ: I’m a gun owner myself asshole–now leave me alone and stay the fuck off MY FACEBOOK page

Now doesn’t this just make everyone feel better? RJ owns a gun and knows some four letter words. I guess RJ means he is the right “type” of gun owner? He reflexively turns to the liberal lexicon, ie profanity, to make his point. Let’s not forget, it’s his Facebook page, how dare you dissent.

Not to be out done in demonstrating his liberal bona fides DT joins the fray.

DT: MB: No abortion has ever killed a room full of people.

Lets admit it, this is a brilliant misdirection. DT has clearly memorized his talking points. I can almost imagine DT biting his lower lip while “tearing up” for the camera. I suppose he has a technical point, you couldn’t fit tens of millions of dead babies even in Michael Moores pantry. I suppose in DT’s world killing babies is fine as long as a gun isn’t used.

Unaware of RJ’s intellectual superiority, another commentator dares to chime in.

GHZ: We have reached the point in this country where stats and body counts are the things that make headlines, not the tragedy itself, like each event is to challenge or outdo the last one, ie: Worst in American history, the most children killed in America, the worst theater shooting in America, etc, etc. Since when do we gloat over our history of violence in this country like we are giving out Oscars for Best Picture? We need to grow up, get pissed off, and stop this carnage from happening, before it becomes just a byline.

Like it or not, GHZ has a point, from the media’s perspective. A long time maxim in the media is, “If it bleeds it leads.” Gun deaths are reported by the “mainstream media” in horse race fashion and have been since they jumped on the gun control bandwagon en mass. GHZ is correct, we need to find a way to stop this kind of violence but I suspect we would disagree on the methods to do so.

RJ: Then let it stop with u GHZ–your hate speech today has been horrific.

Hate speech? Horrific? Seriously? It seems GHZ has hit a nerve here. Having sold some articles to one of the supermarket tabloids, RJ fancies himself a member of that precious media. He simply cannot deal with the facts here. Again, notice the reflexive invocation of “hate speech.” Exactly what was hateful or horrific in GHZ’s post?

GHZ: The media loves the sensationalism. It sells advertising space, and newspapers. It is a sick morbid obsession.

Sadly, GHZ has a point here too. Like Piers Morgan standing on the bodies of the Sandy Hook victims or the perky Katie Curic deceptively editing her gun control “documentary”, the media will stoop to any low to get their agenda across. It is a fact proven by its perpetrators almost daily.

RJ: Well then that should give u something to read while you’re incarcerated! Now, as I told u earlier, leave me alone.

Well alrighty then. A fine example of liberal tolerance here RJ. I mean, how dare these peasants, having been labeled as haters by the all knowing you, continue to address his highness. Apparently it is now criminal to disagree with Sir RJ. Oh, and you peasants need to stop it with the reality stuff, it messes up RJ’s carefully constructed fantasy world. Besides, I’m certain the Enquirer is desperately trying to get him to finish his article on how black lesbian platypus are being discriminated against by local Christian zoo keepers.

Yes I am picking on RJ. Remember, I know him. For the millions of folks like RJ, this is what passes as intelligent debate on gun control or any other subject. How sad is that?

Ted Cruz Donald Trump And The Crisis Cycle

Full disclosure, I am a huge Ted Cruz fan. Have been for years. I have followed carefully his efforts to return America to its founding principles with a certain amount of awe. Knowing full well just how far our once great nation has fallen he still sees the good in her and by default, in us. Perhaps even more wondrous, he still believes that our best days are still ahead of us. Sadly, there are precious few of us left.

I have worked with developmentally disabled adults for the last 31 years. I have noticed over the course of the last presidential campaign some striking similarities between those I serve and the supporters of one particular candidate. As I write this I can’t help but feel like I might be insulting those I work with. Still, as grandpa used to say, there is no point in denying the obvious.

The observation crystallized for me as I listened to a Trump supporter on the Rush show not to long ago. No fact would impede his argument. There was no effort on his part to even listen to, let alone try to understand, why anyone would not support his man. Like his candidate the discussion was going to be his way or the highway. Reason would not be allowed and that was that. He actually stated that there was “nothing” Trump could say that would change his mind. Wow. He calls himself a supporter. He is in fact a fanatic. Trump appeals to people like him and I think I have figured out why.

In my work we are trained regularly on what is known as the Crisis Cycle. The relative part here is what we call the crisis stage. This is the point in an outburst or aggressive behavior where the individual literally loses the ability to reason. Studies have shown that once in that state the portion of the brain that controls the ability to reason actually shuts down. This leads to all kinds of poor decisions. Watching several videos of Trump supporters has confirmed to my satisfaction that many of his supporters are in fact in the crisis stage of the crisis cycle. They literally have lost the ability to think.

But, but the peanut gallery will cry out, surely not all of Trumps supporters are such people. Of course not all of them are. The supporters who are not in crisis yet do nothing to help those who are in crisis are still part of the problem. Let’s be honest here. There are no fence sitters in the Trump camp, you are either a Trump supporter or part of the problem.

After the last seven years it’s not hard to see how anyone could have reached the crisis point. Everything good and decent has been under constant, often brutal assault. Millions of honest, hardworking church goers are routinely and publicly derided. Anyone who thinks that 6000 plus years of human history defining marriage as between a man and a women should be taken seriously is publicly berated as a hateful bigot. As is the person who thinks a man should use the mens bathroom instead of the womens bathroom. Supporting Col. Allen West, Justice Clarence Thomas, Dr. Ben Carson or the Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson means nothing if you don’t mindlessly support the Kenyan little Barry. You are still a racist. As are those who believe that just because someone can break into our country doesn’t mean they are entitled to everything they want for free. Those of us who prefer not to import moslem terrorists by the thousands are berated as xenophobic. How’s that for a scary name? Not to mention those of us who work 60-70 or more hours a week to provide for our families but have a problem with welfare queens stocking their pantries to overflowing on our dime. Then there are our veterans, sacrificed on the altar of politically motivated bonuses. We have watched helplessly as the Kenyan and his vile henchmen have systematically weaponised the IRS, Justice Department, EPA, Education Department, Housing and Urban Development against ordinary Americans and gone batshit crazy with executive orders. I haven’t even scratched the surface of the assaults perpetrated on America yet but I think I can understand how so many Americans can be in crisis at this moment.

Perhaps because of my training and overriding desire to be self-sufficient I have obtained a certain amount of immunity from the desperation that leads to crisis. Or maybe it is nothing more complicated than my remembering the words of my TKD instructor, “The angry person makes the most mistakes. Remain calm, make you enemy angry and capitalize on his errors.”

There is no doubt Trump appeals to angry people. Anger is his preferred tool. He is comfortable with it. He encourages it, feeds it, massages it and I suspect, rewards it. The one-shared quality of nearly all his supporters is a deep seated and white-hot anger. Trump then provides his supporters just enough talking points so they can feel superior to their enemy. Trump deftly keeps them at crisis level with one insane allegation after another. Because they have suspended the ability to reason, they simply cannot notice the lunacy of their positions. They are angry, they want to be angry and by God they are going to be angry. I watch Trump standing at a podium somewhere soaking up that anger like some kind of demented sponge. All that is missing is the Emperors theme from Star Wars.

I will admit, a part of me liked a lot of what Trump said in the beginning. The border wall needs to be build hard, high and fast. Anyone here illegally has only one right, the right to go back to the country they left. There is nothing more anti-American, anti human than Sharia law. Moslems and their cult of islam have no place in America. (I would consider making an exception for any moslem who publicly refutes Sharia law and the practice of Taqiyya. That said, it is a one-strike policy. Screw up and get permanently deported.) His destruction of political correctness was wonderful to behold until he replaced it with his own version, political Trumpness.

I am willing to bet nearly all of Trumps supporters, once they come down from the crisis stage they have been so skillfully maneuvered into, will suffer again. This time though the part of their brain that reasons will be fully functional. They will slowly but surely understand the destruction they wrought upon themselves and the rest of us. On this level, buyers remorse can be a real bitch. I’ll try not to tell you I told you so.

Perspective and Context

Finally, tax season is over! The feeling of relief surging through me is difficult to explain but as real as it gets. I can now devote more of my time to writing about things that, to me at least, matter.

After sixteen years doing taxes for the largest retail tax preparation company around you learn how to listen to people instead of just hearing people talk. I’m certain my listening skills were further developed during my stint as an armed security officer. As one of my Chief Petty Officers in the Navy used to say, “The best weapon/tool you will ever employ is between your ears.” He was so right it is scary. People will nearly always tell you exactly what they want or what their issue is if you know how to listen. Take the “mainstream” media for example.

To an objective observer it is painfully clear nearly every source of news pushes its ideological perspective. Little or no context or perspective is included in the “news” today. News without perspective and context is not news, it is simple propaganda. Nearly all news today fits that description. For the record I exclude those purveyors of news/opinion who clearly identify themselves as such, (Me, Rush, The Blaze and even one of my long time favorites, Paul Harvey.) The organization/person who clearly identifies his ideology may also provide news but the reader/listener/viewer can evaluate such news through the filter of the presenters known bias. Those who present ideology as unbiased news or fact and deny doing so (ABC, NBC, CBS, N.Y. Times, Time, Moveon, Salon etc) are simple propagandists and should be clearly labeled as such.

Black Lives Matters is a prime example of an ideology desperate to avoid perspective or context. Does anyone really believe todays average inner city dwelling black man with his government sponsored apartment, ability to travel at will, generous EBT card, free health care, $200 Air Jordans, cable fed 42inch flatscreen tv, $600 Iphone booming out the latest in rap music and free legal counsel is worse off than he would have been as a slave a 160 plus years ago? These “poor” black men risk being killed by their black brothers at a rate orders of magnitude higher than they would have been exposed to as a slave. But, but I hear the peanut gallery exploding, slavery is evil and wrong. Indeed it is and no sane person would argue otherwise but there are some basic facts, perspective if you will, that BLM and their endorsers either do not or will not accept.

At slavery’s height only 1.6% (interestingly that is also the same percentage of Americans that identify as homersexual, I wonder if there is a correlation) of southerners owned a slave. The fact is that outside of plantation life few southerners had any direct experience with slavery. Does that make the evil of slavery any less then? Of course not but it does provide a level of context concerning slavery that undermines BLM’s very existence. But, but the peanut gallery gasps, what about racism? Just because you didn’t own a slave doesn’t mean you weren’t racist. That is true as far as it goes but honestly, it doesn’t go very far. How then do the BLM race baiters explain the thousands of publicly known Abolitionists (and thousands more who remained hidden from public view) in the south that worked diligently and bravely to end slavery? There were certainly many men of wealth who chose not to own slaves. Were these folks racist also?

But, but the peanut gallery explodes, wasn’t the worth of a black man set as three-quarters of a man? To believe that one must remain ignorant of history and avoid factual context at all costs. The three-quarters number was a method devised for the purposes of limiting the number of House Members in congress from the southern states. If slaves had been counted individually the north would have been, politically speaking, outvoted regularly by the southern states. The three-quarters “rule” was a simple math solution to balance political power. It was never engendered as an actual measure of worth. That was a lie told in the Gobbels tradition, long and loud.

But, but the peanut gallery interjects passionately, that was then, this is now! BLM claims that even today blacks are routinely executed by police. While it is not difficult to argue with someone so comfortable in their delusion that reality takes a back seat it does sometimes get tiresome. I wonder sometimes if such people have just decided to be stupid longer than I can be reasonable, thus “winning” by default. Still, according to the Justice Department cops kill nearly twice as many whites as blacks every year. I guess the police have not gotten the memo about killing the “wrong” color people.

But, but, the peanut gallery whispers sincerely, seemingly desperate to prove some point, any point, no matter how small, of their ideology correct. Blacks are routinely given more traffic tickets than whites. That “proves” racism by law enforcement. Well, its true there are stupid people in every group but I believe law enforcement weeds them out faster than most. Still, perspective blows this “tragedy” into the overflowing dust bin of stupid liberal ideas. According to a study commissioned by the New Jersey Attorney General and later leaked to The New York Times, blacks make up 16% of the drivers on the Jersey Turnpike but 25% of the speeders in the 65-mph zones. In the study a speed camera was set up. The sole purpose of the camera was to photograph cars passing it recording both the driver and the vehicles speed. The number of blacks photographed speeding was nearly identical, as a percentage, to the number of tickets issued to black speeders. To your average BLM type this proves only that speed cameras are racist.

The keystone in the destruction of context and perspective is the overriding and fiercely burning desire of liberals and progressives to erase history and replace it with their preferred narrative. Few examples better illustrate this than the flap over the Confederate flag. The Confederate Battle flag, popularly known as the stars and bars, was never the official flag of the confederacy. The simple fact is that the “national” flag adopted by the southern states looked so much like the American flag that soldiers on both sides suffered serious confusion under the stress of battle. The confederacy adopted the stars and bars as a battle flag to eliminate that confusion. A symbol of racism? In a tertiary sense perhaps but to the student of history and the vast majority of the confederate army it was just a symbol of states rights.

Even so, it is not just ideologies or symbols that must be deprived of context and perspective. People too must be sterilized, sanitized or even eliminated from history. Such a fate has befallen one of my earliest heros. His name was Milton Friedman and he won a Noble Prize in Economics. Precious few “college” students even know his name. Those who dare bring him up as a defender of capitalism routinely hear him being derided as the crazy old uncle every family has. Nothing could be farther from the truth. His brilliant and simply explained destruction of every tenant held dear by liberals, progressives, communists, socialists and social justice warriors made him the all time public enemy number one. To understand just how potent a threat he was to the aforementioned busybodies you should watch him on Youtube. Prepare to be amazed.

Today Ivy League and city colleges are filled to the brim with well-indoctrinated perspective and context free automatons given the tragically inappropriate name of student. This is a generation that has accomplished nothing more than the perfection of narcissism, self-absorption, mindless entertainment and the abandonment of virtually everything that made America the greatest country in the history of the planet. This generation is so devoid of actual accomplishment that they must make up tragedies to overcome. Micro aggressions, mansplaining or safe spaces anyone? On some level I believe these purveyors of social justice sense the destruction they have wrought. I believe this explains their passion and devotion to their frankly insane ideologies. They seek, on some level, to absolve their guilty consciences by riding their white horses to the rescue of, insert your favorite grievance here.

To these thin skinned heros of the revolution context and perspective are dreadful impediments that must be overcome, banned and discredited. No safe space can harbor intellectually honest perspective and context. The twin evils of perspective and context require thought and after all, thinking today is a lot harder than it should be. Thus it must be this way because perspective and context destroys the current popular narrative. Whether it’s the war on women, religious freedom, global warming, terrorism, gay rights, the cult of islam, gun control, equal pay for women, transgender equality, Planned Parenthoods mythical mammograms or the neighborhood pedophiles right to use the bathroom/shower of his choice, perspective and context must eliminated.

As one of the leaders of their revolution Hillary Clinton once said, “We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.” Glad we got that straight.
