What It Takes To Be A Good Democrat Today

The recent election of Joe Morrissey in Virginia has cemented my theory of what it takes to be a true democrat today. It’s a theory whose previously nebulous form began taking shape many years ago when another democrat, named Studds, received a standing ovation by fellow democrats when, after a short absence, he finally returned to his seat the house.

So why was Studds absent? It appears that Studds and Morrissey have at least one thing, besides being loyal democrat true believers, in common. Morrissey, like Studds, was attracted to one of his underage staff. He was so attracted to the staffer that like Studds he was having sex with them. Remember both staffers at the time were minors. Morrissey it seems didn’t care about that because, in some capacity, chasing children for sex apparently seemed natural to him. Seems his voters feel the same way.

When Studds’s affair with an underage minor came to light republicans correctly demanded Studds resign his seat. He refused to even consider the idea. His fellow democrats, probably jealous that he was having sex with a child and not wanting to set a precedent should they get caught doing the same, circled the wagons and began a vigorous and belligerent assault against said republicans. The media, likely for the same reasons as the democrats as near as I can tell, staunchly supported Studds and roundly criticized the “mean spirited” republicans.

While we are on the subject of creepy scumbags, allow me to introduce you to Chesa Boudin the San Francisco public defender who won the recent DA election. This sycophant of the dictator Hugo Chavez campaigned on his plans to finish the destruction of San Francisco by making it a world class sanctuary for criminals of all stripes and bents, homeless people, illegal immigrants, drug dealers and addicts and cop-haters. He is perfectly fine with American veterans begging on the crap covered streets he wants to represent as long as he can subsidize “universal legal representation” for illegal immigrants facing deportation. But I guess he had to appeal to his voting base.

As a socialist democrat Boudin doesn’t believe American Angel Families have the right to sue the sanctuary politicians whose policies and actions give aid and comfort to the illegal alien criminals in this country, allowing them to continue to freely hurt, maim, rape or murder the loved ones of said Angel families. Instead of helping Americans Boudin promises he will “help every single immigrant victim of every crime obtain a U-Visa.” Apparently he believes Frisco doesn’t have enough criminals.

Either the voters in San Francisco are just as evil as this human cesspool or this is what a large portion $623,000 from out-of-state ambulance chasing lawyers, demented ivory tower dwelling college professors and jaded entertainment industry executives buys.

Such legal lunacy isn’t limited to lower level flunkies like Boudin. Representing one of the darkest forms of self serving evil, I present Judge William H. Orrick III. This piece of legal refuse impersonating a judge is hearing the David Daleiden/Planned Parenthood case. Being the good liberal ideologue he is this political hack began undermining Daleiden’s case from day one. He has refused to allow Daleiden to use a First Amendment defense. He has banned the jury from seeing all of the undercover video’s shot by Daleiden and his group. The Daily Wire quoted this legal quack hiding beneath judicial robes informing the jury that “I have already determined that these defendants trespassed at each of these locations. Because I determined that these defendants trespassed, the law assumes that Planned Parenthood has been harmed and is entitled to an award. …” In other words, don’t bother with the law or evidence. I’ve decide for you. Stalin would be proud.

Still not dirty enough for you? Consider these disturbing facts. This meat sack is the founder of a Planned Parenthood of Northern California Clinic in San Francisco. His wife is a well known abortion rights activist. Coming as no surprise this piece of legal debris was an Obama appointee who, in my opinion, purchased his bench seat by raising some $230,000 for the Obama campaign.

Why do these facts matter? Because ethically and probably legally, Orrick should have recused himself from this case. He is up to his neck in abortion promotion and apparently has a financial interest in the continuation of abortion on demand as well as the alleged selling of baby body parts. Clearly if David Daleiden wins (in other words, the judge rules against himself) Orricks business could suffer.

Sadly this sort of lawfare isn’t limited to hacks like Orrick. In the gay marriage case at the supreme court both Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonya Sotomeyer were ethically required to recuse themselves. Both had performed gay marriages, given speeches in support of gay marriage and written articles in support of gay marriage. They chose ideology over the oath they swore to uphold, the ethics they agreed to be bound by and frankly, common sense in their determination to legislate their personal beliefs from the bench. Such is the current liberal/democrat/progressive mindset.

So, where do we stand?

Whether it’s the local school board member who thinks junior high locker rooms should be co-ed, the city council member who kneels during the Pledge of Allegiance, the homersexual scout leader that wants to take your son on an over nighter to help him “earn” his Eagle or the state representative who thinks illegal aliens have more rights than American citizens and should be able to vote, the current democrat agenda is plain to see. They seek only the destruction of every value and belief that made America the greatest defender of liberty and freedom as well as the most charitable country in the history of the planet.

I could go on and on with examples like those listed above. These mind numbing, hate spewing, money grubbing, power mad ideological hacks completely dominate the democratic party leadership at every level. Everywhere it seems, democrats at all levels of society are turning to dishonesty, hate, greed and lust in their attempts to grab the power they need to bend the rest of us to their demented will.

The saddest part of all of this appears to be that the rank and file democrats, the people who continue to vote and contribute money to democrats and the party, have no clue what is happening to their party because they are to busy watching CNN (I know, I know, no one watches CNN) or some other fake news. The other options are that they all aspire to be as morally and intellectually bankrupt as their leaders or simply don’t want to be bothered. Either condition necessarily attaches a certain amount blame to them as well.

I’ll give the liberal leadership credit, they have successfully indoctrinated at least two complete generations of Americans. Turns out Reagan was right, what they did to our education system was an act of war. A war on reason, normalcy, sanity and decency.

The uniquely American sense of compassion has been successfully and completely weaponized by the progressives against the rest of us.

Deviancy has been successfully defined so far down that today far to many Americans can’t see the forest because the trees are in the way.

Today democrats demand babies be killed before/after they have been born in the name of choice, tolerate voter fraud at every level of government in the name of inclusion, insist that hate groups like CAIR, SPLC and Antifa are peaceful civil rights groups, abuse our veterans so illegals can be given silver spoons in the name of compassion, teach and encourage children (as young as kindergarten) to have sex with each other and adults in the name of education (actually it’s pedophilia), look the other way as the “religion of peace” murders/enslaves millions while assaulting at every opportunity peaceful Christians and Jews and abandon actual education for political indoctrination in the continuous pursuit of ideological purity.

Democrats seek to shackle those who manage to avoid the baby killers at Planned Parenthood with so called “reparations” for something (slavery) they have no responsibility for, ridicule personal responsibility and traditional morality as white privilege and male patriarchy and turn to late night political hacks disguised as comics for latest ideologically pure “news”.

It seems clear today that the requirements to be a democrat in good standing to day are fairly straightforward. An aversion to the truth is the main prerequisite, followed closely by the ability to lie long and often.

Some secondary skills include the ability to memorizing talking points without an even cursory understanding of what they mean and the proper (and often) use of the following labels, racist, homophobe, Nazi, bigot, hater and science denier. Underpinning all these traits seems to be the rock solid beliefs that only government can solve your problems and you are (and always have been) a victim of someone or something white and male. Unless you’re a white male.

Sadly, the ability to reason clearly doesn’t make the list of requirements to be a good democrat.

I applaud Donald Trump for trying to save America. I am pleasantly surprised at just how successful he has been. I am equally worried about just how deep and corrupt the rot he has exposed runs in our government, culture and education system. Despite the best efforts of Trump and his supporters, it may very well be to late to save America from the, how does the quote go, “overbearing, two bit, tin plated dictators with delusions of Godhood.”

Until the thirty-five percent or so of devoted liberals and another ten percent or so of useful idiots that follow them are willing to abandon their carefully nurtured fantasy worlds and return to reality America may be having her last hurrah.

How Long Are You Going To Let Them Lie To You?

After some forty years of observation I can state conclusively that deliberately lying is a natural function of the liberal/democrat/progressive mindset. Sometimes the lies are small and insignificant, other times, like the current impeachment tragedy, not so much. “Let no crisis go to waste,” really means something to those intent on controlling every aspect of our lives. You know, to “help” those of us who aren’t as smart or enlightened as they are.

With the previous paragraph in mind lets examine two of the most prominent issues liberal leadership lies about today.

Global Warming

Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg, described by Barack Obama as “one of our planet’s greatest advocates” is a sad example of the kind of damage the willing liars among us can do. I’m no psychologist, nor do I play one on TV but, as we used to say in high school, “something isn’t right with that kid.” Understand, I do not dispute that her concern is real, only that her facts and conclusions are in question.

Then there are her enablers, her parents, the fawning media, radical environmental groups and the self anointed one himself, The Kenyan Little Barry. He went so far as to tell her, “You and me, we’re a team.” Without a doubt she should choose her team mates more carefully.

As documented by TIME, the following are some of the environmentally friendly choices one of the world’s loudest global warming hoaxers made in the first five months after leaving the White House.

He bought an 8,200 sq. ft., 9-bedroom, fully air-conditioned mansion in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the nation’s capitol.

The day he left office, he flew 2,200 miles in a near-empty U.S. government Boeing 747 all the way across the continent to Palm Springs, California for his first post-presidency vacation.

After relaxing at an 11,000 sq. ft. fully air-conditioned villa at the exclusive Thunderbird Heights Resort in nearby Rancho Mirage, he flew 3,300 miles, by private jet, all the way back across the continent to the Caribbean, where he vacationed with Richard Branson at Branson’s $48,000 per night, fully air-conditioned luxury villa on Branson’s private island.

After departing his vacation with Branson by private jet, he took another private jet to fly 6,000 miles for some much-needed R & R at the late Marlon Brando’s fully air-conditioned French Polynesian hideaway in Tahiti.

Next, he took another private jet for a 2,700-mile trip to Hawaii, where he golfed for several days before taking yet another private jet for the 4,800-mile return trip to his 8,200 sq. ft. fully air-conditioned mansion.

In February, he twice traveled from DC to New York, both times by private jet, the first to take in a play on Broadway, the other to rub shoulders over dinner with U2’s Bono.

In early May, he private-jetted from DC to Milan, Italy, a round trip of 8,200 miles, where a caravan of 14 carbon-powered SUVs took him to give a paid speech about — sit down for this — humans dumping too much CO2 in the atmosphere.

While in Milan, he stayed for two days at the 2,000 sq. ft., fully air-conditioned, $9,500 per night presidential suite at the exclusive Park Hyatt Milan.

Next, he took a private jet, from Milan to Tuscany, where he stayed at Borgo Finocchieto, a fully air-conditioned manor house that once was home to 21 families before being turned into an ultra-luxurious vacation villa for the rich and famous.

Having left a feather-light carbon footprint in Italy, the former president returned, by private jet, to his 8,200 sq. ft. fully air-conditioned mansion in DC.

I’m going to suppose that you didn’t know any of this. Make no mistake, that was by design. His allies in the “mainstream” media and wacko groups like the Sierra Club etc will never willingly call him to account on the prodigiously wasteful lifestyle he and his family enjoy. After all, he is one of them, right down to the satirical 6000 square foot redwood deck.

The term for lying by not telling you something relevant is called a lie of omission. The media is long and well practiced at that.

Racism

Sixteen year-old high school student Nicholas Sandmann, while waiting for his bus to take him back to school, was accosted by a “native American” protester. The protester, whom I will not name, marched up to Sandmann’s and began beating his drum in Sandmann’s face. With nowhere to retreat to Sandmann did what any responsibly raised adolescent would do, he smiled and remained calm. For his sterling self control he was falsely targeted, attacked and vilified by the mainstream media as a racist.

In this case, where there was no crisis to manipulate, the media simply manufactured one. Perhaps sensing an opportunity to further the false impression of rampant racism in the country the Washington Post and CNN led the smear campaign against young Mr. Sandmann. Don’t think that was the case? Then why, after footage clearly demonstrating every point of their initial allegations were wrong was made public did CNN and the Washington Post continue to vilify Mr. Sandmann as a classic example of racism? Why did they seemingly knowingly mislead their readers/viewers about the alleged “native American” and his glorious combat service even though they apparently knew within hours he had never been a combat soldier but a refrigerator repairman? The answer clearly was that these media outlets believed their narrative must survive.

By the way, this kind of lying is called lies of commission. The media is also really good at this type of lie.

The sad thing is that this type of behavior is so typical from the media, liberals, progressives and democrats that it has become their normal. It infects everything issue they become involved in. I could write a book full of nothing but examples like the two I have already provided. The practice of lying and inventing facts to support a clearly false or unreasonable or even unscientific agenda has become so ingrained as to be unseeable by those engaged in the process. It has become so ingrained that even the presentation of unmistakable evidence proving them wrong has no effect. That my friends is a recognized psychological condition. It’s called Cognitive Dissonance. CD affects not just the lying media and political types but can be found running amuck anywhere liberal/progressives/democrats congregate.

While the progenitors of misinformation and their followers who have chosen ignorance (in the classical definition of the word, ie, to maintain a lack of knowledge) may be clinically ill the original question remains.

How long are you going to let them lie to you?

Comfortably Dumb

When I was in the Navy I had a Chief Petty Officer who constantly warned us against becoming “fat, dumb and happy.” It was an admonition to avoid becoming lazy and complacent. It was sound advice and I do my best to adhere to it to this day. Sadly, I cannot say the same about roughly fifty percent of my fellow Americans. A lot of the people I meet, work with or overhear lately could only be described as “fat, dumb and happy.”

Don’t misunderstand this as some kind of personal attack. What I mean is that these folks are well fed, highly uninformed or misinformed, blissfully ignorant of just how far from the truth they have drifted (or been led) and easily entertained. The social justice, climate change child abuse victim Greta Thunberg is a prime example of the extreme to which some will go to impose their beliefs on someone (think about what her parents had to do to her to get her to this point in her short life) and just where those people can wind up at (look at how unhappy she is). Most however are like my driver at my security job.

He is basically a good person who has bought into some of the liberal notions on freedom, rights and responsibilities. Like many misinformed people today he gets most of his news from Facebook, his Twitter feed and the echo chamber of everyone who agrees with him. There are no more detached from reality news sources on the planet. Ok, maybe CNN. Or PMSNBC. Or Roswell Rachel Maddow, but I repeat myself. When I told him that, he informed me in no uncertain terms that he watches the network news as well. All I could think of was the Mortica Addams quote, “You poor man.” His conversion to liberalism is, like the road to hell, paved with good intentions. He is in so many ways a reflection of what vast portions of the American population have become. Consider the following.

Myth Creation And Acceptance

Some 25 or so yeas ago the republican party gained control of the U. S House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years. In one one of it’s first actions the republicans moved to limit the growth of government spending. After generations at the helm democrats had built in automatic budget increases every year, regardless of whether they were needed or not. One of the programs the congress addressed was the school lunch program. Congress reduced the automatic budget increase in the school lunch program from, if memory serves, 7% to 4%. My ordinary, non common core math skills tells me that’s still an increase in spending. Despite historic levels of lying by the democrats about republicans and their agenda, the republicans refused to budge on the numbers. Suddenly children began writing carefully orchestrated letters to politicians and the media asking why republicans were starving them.

Even then the media couldn’t help themselves, running story after story about the draconian cuts in the school lunch program and how starving children would be the only outcome if the evil republicans had their way. If you payed any attention to those stories you would have heard the plaintive question repeated millions of times, “how will starving children be able to learn?”

Left unsaid in all these articles was a bedrock liberal principle. It was the concept that the government, not you, was responsible to care for your children. This concept was subtly played up and intensely promoted for years afterwards as democrats and their media accomplices repeatedly accused republicans of starving children. Nowhere was this question asked, if you know your children are starving why aren’t you, mom and dad, doing something about it? To this day the media and their democratic handlers still perpetuate the myth of republicans starving children. To this day many Americans accept this myth, as well as dozens of others, as fact.

It may be difficult for many American’s to believe but there is a system in place to achieve and perpetuate these kinds of results. Baltimore is our next stop.

Preparing The Soil

Some time ago an organization called Project Baltimore started investigating Baltimore’s school system. Their findings were both shocking and outrageous. They found that in 19 Baltimore high schools only 14 out of 3,804 students were proficient in math. That’s less than one percent. Even more tragic was the finding that in 13 of Baltimore’s high schools there were no students scoring proficient in math. None. It gets worse. Five Baltimore high schools had no students at all that tested proficient in math or reading skills. Not one single student. Yet somehow, roughly 70% of students in the system graduate. These public education victims are just what liberal social justice types seek. Easily led cannon fodder without the ability to apply, let alone obtain factual information, to be used in the reasoning out of a logical solution to a problem. Similar, if not always exactly the same results, exist in school systems nation wide. So, how did this come about?

Camouflage

When the great unwashed eventually begin to see the faint glimmerings of just how victimized they have become instead of holding accountable those in actual power, these victims of public education lash out in the direction they have been carefully steered towards their entire lives, republicans, conservatives and of course, evil corporations. Given the following, expecting them to behave otherwise would be foolish.

StudyFinds recently completed a survey of adults from across the nation. The results were eye opening. Apparently only 42% of American’s say they know the name of at least one local member of Congress. The study also found that 71% of American’s can name the governor of their state. While that’s good, only 45% say they would actually recognize him or her if they saw them in person. While this is terrible I suspect it is even worse for elected leaders at the state and local level. It is reasonable to extrapolate from this study that virtually no one knows who their state legislators, county or city leaders are, let alone what they stand for.

Those responsible for today’s historic levels of societal discord, liberals in all their disguises, ie progressives, socialists, democratic socialists, etc, successfully hide behind the labels they created and foisted upon us with the help of a complicit media. Instead of being divided by such outdated concepts as right and wrong or good and evil American’s today are separated by labels such as republican vs democrat, conservative vs liberal, gay vs straight, white vs black, rich vs poor and male vs female just to name a few. Reinforced by a wildly biased media and education complex, today “everyone knows” that:

Conservatives are evil and liberals are the compassionate good guys.

Masked antifa thugs while assaulting people and destroying property are just peaceful protesters.

Racism is alive and well in America.

Teachers are underpaid. (How you make that argument in Baltimore with a straight face escapes me)

That western civilization (ie the U.S.) is solely responsible for man made global warming.

Black conservatives are mentally ill.

The list is nearly endless but I think you know where I am going.

 

Observing people today I can’t help but remember the words of Alexander Hamilton who, in expressing his frustration during the revolutionary war said, “Our countrymen have all the folly of an ass and all the passiveness of the sheep in their dispositions. They are determined not to be free and they can neither be frightened, discouraged or persuaded to change their resolution.”

I couldn’t have said it better.

Red Flags And The Never Ending Story

The Energizer Bunny has nothing on these guys. Liberals on gun control I mean.

Given the speed at which they launched their assault on law abiding gun owners in the wake of the latest shootings in El Paso and Dayton you get the impression they have been chomping at the bit for people to die so they can have some momentum to advance their anti freedom agenda. Unable to wait for the bodies to even be removed from where they fell liberals launched right into their newest fad of a solution, Red Flag laws.

In English that translates into, Gestapo level terror run by power mad, politically correct group thinking liberals. No, I’m not being hyperbolic. Just listen to them, they don’t even try to hide their goals anymore.

The stated purpose of so called red flag laws is of course safety. As a deceptive ploy it is brilliant. After all, who would argue against safety? However, if you look just a bit more closely the first thing that should jump out at you (unless you are a public school victim) is that this “common sense safety law” denies you your constitutionally protected right to due process. Due process is that nasty concept, to liberals anyway, that you are innocent until proven guilty. Under Red Flag laws liberals are content to allow the mere accusation to equal condemnation, as long as the condemned are the “correct” class of people. Don’t think so?

Despite Trumps best efforts liberals still own the media, courts and education from pre-k to college. The deep state and dozens of scummy “republicans” desperately seeking approval of equally scummy liberals routinely shred the Constitution. The Supreme Court is unreliable at best because of swamp dwellers like Roberts and Kavanagh. Translation, liberals will never lose their right to own a gun but you, the mentally ill conservative or functionally deranged Christian, will.

Once passed, the next step in the Red Flag law strategy is requiring psychological evidence for background checks. Don’t think you will be diagnosed as mentally ill? Consider what you can not talk about today without being ridiculed, maligned or even assaulted today.

Point out the evil of radical islam? You must be a racist and thus mentally ill.
Dispute man made global warming? You must be a science denier and thus mentally ill.
Think homersexuality is a choice? You must be a homophobic and thus mentally ill.
Believe in God? Definitely mentally ill.
Think immigration laws should be enforced. Clearly you are a white supremacist and thus mentally ill.
Believe the killer and not the gun is responsible. You must be some kind of toothless redneck and thus mentally ill.
Think marriage is an institution between a man and a women. You must be an intolerant bigot and thus mentally ill.
Point out the tragic failure of gun control in democrat run cities, well, I think you get the picture.

Those are just the thought crimes. Consider the following.

Ever been to counseling? You’re potentially to suicidal to own a gun.
Diagnosed with PTSD? You’re to unstable to own a gun.
Ever have an argument with your spouse? At work? You’re a potential mass shooter, no gun for you.
Have to many speeding tickets? You’re a potential road rage killer.
Ever take anti depressants? You’re not able to cope with reality well enough to own a gun.
Are you a registered republican? Clearly to mentally unstable to own a gun.

I like my definition of mentally ill. Anyone who honestly believes that passing just one more law will cause all the criminals to suddenly lay down their guns is clearly detached from reality and needs careful supervision.

Tragically, actual science deniers, ie psychiatrists and psychologists, you know, the people who say men can be women and even have periods, will get to decide whether you are mentally ill. Just think, once an accusation is made against you, you are then required to prove you are not crazy. Won’t that be fun?

The gun grabbers are not resting all their hopes of stealing your guns and scrapping the Constitution on Red Flag laws alone. Some liberal dominated state governments have been pressuring the financial system to deny their services to gun manufacturers, sellers and owners. If successful they can gut the Second Amendment without anyone having to take credit for it. (Hint to gun and ammunition manufacturers and sellers – create your own financial network and get out of debt)

Still stubborn enough to own a gun? Those same people believe you should be required to have additional liability insurance. The idea behind that proposal is to simply price you out of the ability to afford owning a gun. Boom, the Second Amendment remains “available” to all but is for all practical purposes, null and void. Once again, no one has to take credit for denying you your unalienable right. Criminals and drug cartels around the world are preparing the celebratory champagne as we speak.

Still think gun control is a worthy idea? Why don’t you ask the six million Jews murdered in NAZI Germany how they feel about gun control. Or the two million Cambodians killed by Pol Pot? Or the millions murdered by Stalin? Or the millions murdered by China in the Cultural Revolution? Or those about to be murdered in Hong Kong?

Silly me. You would have to be dead to do that. Oddly, today’s liberals seem to be perfectly okay with that.

34 Years And a Pair Of Losers

Thirty four years ago I married my best friend. For a brief period of time I wrestled with one of the toughest choices I had ever had to make in my short 20 years on this planet. I had discovered the career of my dreams, the United States Navy about the same time I discovered the girl of my dreams. I chose my wife and have never looked back. This year we decided to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary over the weekend instead of just on a single day. We spent the weekend going on a train ride, visiting a museum, going to dinners, catching a couple of movies and just being together. It was a wonderful couple of days spent with my dear wife.

Of course I was on a news blackout the entire time. In fact, until we noticed some flags flying at half mast we had no idea anything drastic had happened. We figured someone famous had died but decided to wait until Tuesday to find out who.

Turns out there were two losers who made a conscious choice to kill a bunch of people. Here we go again. I have not yet delved into the news so I am writing this essentially “blind” to the “facts” of what ever happened but I suspect I know what happened and exactly what will happen in the aftermath.

Liberals, especially the clown car disaster of democratic presidential hopefuls, will come out screaming about “common sense” gun control. I guess Chicago and Baltimore’s abject failure as gun control leaders means nothing to them.

The media, standing gleefully on the bodies of the dead, will spin the two losers as right wing, republican, conservative, racist hate mongers. I am willing to bet the evil killers turn out to be liberal activists. If this turns out to be true, the media will bury that fact so deep you would have to airmail it daylight.

Desperately seeking media approval, the bend over republicans will fold like a cheap suit to liberal calls of “if we can save just one life” while trying to pass numerous unconstitutional gun control laws. As an aside, I place these so called republicans in the same category as the shooters ie hateful, useless idiots.

Once again, people like me will risk getting our heads chopped off because we attempt to remind everyone that the right to keep and bear arms is untouchable. Read the Constitution and bill of rights. Still confused? Read the Federalist Papers. Go ahead, I dare you.

We will persistently point out that gun control has never worked anywhere its been tried. Remember NAZI Germany? Mao’s China? Stalin’s Russia? Neither do the hundred million who died under those regimes.

We will talk about how many hundreds of thousands of times a year people successfully use guns to defend themselves, nearly always without firing a shot.

We will note that lawful gun owners, statistically speaking, never commit the kind of shootings that happened over the weekend.

We would have you observe that every day millions of law abiding Americans practice concealed carry and you never even know.

We would have you learn that Americans practicing concealed carry save lives every year by stopping a crime in progress even though there is no requirement for them to risk their lives, reputations and family finances to do so.

We will point out, sarcastically, that with some 300 million guns and maybe a trillion rounds of ammo, if we gun owners were a problem you would know it in no uncertain terms by now.

One of the things that makes our marriage successful is that we do not lie to each other. This is a lesson that very few liberals, democrats and progressives, but I repeat myself, are willing to learn let alone practice. For them the lie is to valuable a tool to surrender. It is the wedge they use to get stupid things like so called Red Flag laws passed where an anonymous person can have your lawfully owned firearms taken from you by force and without any legitimate reason. You are then forced to spend thousands of dollars in lawyer fees and months of wasted time in the legal system to try and get your property back with no guarantee of success, even if you successfully disprove every allegation made against you. This actually happens in Colorado, the state next door to me.

I am going to catch up on the news and will likely write more about this tragic weekend later. I am also going to continue living my life and fighting to defend my God given rights from anyone who thinks they can run my life better than I can.

Liberals And The Digital Ghetto

In the early 1940’s, controlling what people thought was in some respects, much easier and in others somewhat more difficult than doing so today. In those times people got their news from the newspapers and newsreels shown in movie theaters. Today simply perusing your FB account allows you to be considered well informed. In countries like Germany, the official party line was the news. Books were burned in an effort to deny both their existence and the ideas they contained. As a function of their noxious ideas about Jews the Nazi’s rounded up them up into ghettos. From there it was relatively easy to ship them off to the death camps. Not only was no one watching, virtually no one could watch thus there was no one to hear their pleas for help. To some observers, that history is beginning to repeat itself only this time, it is beginning in the digital arena.

Once again the often and nearly always unfairly maligned but stunningly revealing Project Veritas enlightens anyone willing to listen. James O’Keefe, doing what real journalists used to do, has again allowed evil to speak clearly for itself. In his latest effort GOOGLE has self identified as a willing perpetrator of censorship at levels that would turn Hilter himself green with envy.

Youtube, GOOGLE and Facebook have willingly chosen to form an evil alliance based on censorship, social justice and hatred of America itself. They seek nothing less than the total elimination of anything they disagree with. An interesting concept as this is an often changing target. Ebay and Amazon are seeking to add their clout to the formation of the digital ghetto conservatives and republicans must, according to these corporations, be placed in.

Enter recently Twitter, a sewer all its own. John Lott is the President of the Crime Prevention Research Center. He wrote More Guns, Less Crime, a book scientifically destroying the gun control argument. He recently tweeted, “New Zealand’s killer’s manifesto says that he did attack to get more gun control/gun bans in New Zealand and the US, Killer was a socialist, environmentalist who hated capitalists and trade.” Lott put links in his tweet so that anyone could follow up on the accuracy of his tweet. I’ll save you the time, his tweet is 100% correct.

Twitter, being the good social justice liberal hacks that they are, blocked Lott’s account and refused to tell him why. When he appealed he was sent a reply saying he lost his appeal and again, no explanation was provided.

Truth,” Lott said “I suppose, is no defense.” He added, “I can and have proven that my tweet is factually accurate.”

The thought police are striking hard. It is in part desperation as they see some of their gains beginning to slip away. It is also in part, their nature. Like antifa, they see no downside right now to attack maliciously and unfairly anyone they disagree with. The media and shadowy money men like Soros will cover for them. Shadow banning, censorship algorithms, demonetizing, deplatforming, doxxing and outright bias are the tools of the digital oppressors. Like a thief in the night they seek to steal from you the very idea that another opinion exists. If that doesn’t work they want you to believe that you and your opinion are so far outside the mainstream that you will censor yourself. They ply their hatred unseen by a population to busy with their newest app to even notice how manipulated they are. Don’t believe me? Put down your cell phone, internet and streaming services for six measly hours. I bet you can’t.

Today’s big brother knows virtually everything about you. Your phone, computer and Alexa type devices listen to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The NSA collects all your phone calls, emails, text messages and social media posts. Using GPS your phone and now, in newer models your car, informs on you just exactly where you have been and when you were there.

I can hear you now. So what Sailor, I got nothing to hide.

Ah, the voice of innocence speaking as you head naked into that “shower” with dozens of other people just like you. It may be a digital version but it is none the less a “shower.”

If that is your response all I can say is, wow, your indoctrination is complete. I hope you remember that when you finally become one of the digital oppressors targets, which because of their wildly varying standards, will eventually happen.

If you are willing to actually listen I have two points to make. Ponder them carefully.

First, none of these organizations have any generic right to this information. Period. The fact that this even needs to be said, let alone explained, reveals just how deeply the indoctrination has taken hold.

Second. This information is being gathered to both generate huge profits at your expense and perhaps even more importantly to the digital oppressors, sort us out. The digital oppressors need to know who to target now and who may be a potential threat to their coming, if they have their way, monopoly on both thought and opinion.

There is an old saying that goes, “Just because your paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.” I am certainly not paranoid but I am observant. Call me names if it makes you feel better but I believe we have sacrificed far to much liberty and privacy for the illusion of “security” and the sake of “convenience.” When GOOGLE and their ilk admit targeting you it isn’t really paranoia to point out what they have admitted to.

My grandfather used to tell me “There’s no point in denying the obvious.” I don’t know how much more obvious GOOGLE and their ilk can be. The question is, how many more of us will willingly head into the “showers?”

Antifa And The Fourth Of July

I sincerely wish that everyone had as enjoyable holiday as I did. Quality time spent with family is something can renew the spirit and rejuvenate the soul.

The fourth of July is a yearly reminder of liberty that far to many Americans use as simply another excuse for a day off. Barbecuing hot dogs and hamburgers, downing a cold beer or two and enjoying some fireworks with the family seems to be the limit of most peoples ability to understand the holiday. This is beyond sad.

Generations of sacrifice and progress are lost in a haze of fireworks, fun and food.

What is even more sad is that there are so many Americans willing to abandon the very system that creates and maintains the conditions that allow their celebrations to happen, let alone continue. There are even those who are actively seeking to impose that failed agenda on America. The very same agenda that so many Americans died fighting against. It is an agenda that has failed every single time it’s been tried. It is an agenda that has murdered some 120 million people in just the 20th century alone. It is an agenda that seeks to establish the power and privilege of a select few over everyone else. It is the utopian driven agenda of socialism, communism or fascism. They are all different flavors of the same totalitarian nightmare espoused by Antifa.

In that vein, the criminal/terrorist element known as Antifa has struck yet again. This time they “demonstrated” in the liberal workers paradise of Portland, Oregon. The hateful cowards, hiding behind their masks marks them as cowards and their actions mark them as hateful, demonstrated their tolerance by assaulting, among others, a senior citizen and a gay, minority journalist. How understanding of them.

The regular and consistent violence of Antifa virtually never gets coverage in any mainstream media outlet. The fact is that these media outlets have for all practical purposes omitted covering Antifa’s existence and its associated violence since Trump’s pre-election rallies. The mainstream media, when it is occasionally forced to cover the vile antics of these domestic terrorists, present Antifa as a group of social justice warriors, a bunch of pacifist Robin Hoods out to save the common man from the evils of freedom, capitalism and of course, Trump. Nothing could be farther from the truth and the mainstream media knows that. Sadly, Antifa has noticed the length and depth of friendly cover provided by the media and their talking heads and has upped their levels of violence accordingly.

The defenders of Antifa, by the very act of defending Antifa, fully endorse the destruction of the concept of peaceful protest. They do this despite the fact that no one, Antifa included, seems to know specifically what Antifa wants outside of the destruction of the American democratic process. Honestly, by wearing their masks and black outfits the Antifa thugs appear as a negative image of an earlier Democratic Party, the ones that wore white hoods. Perhaps that explains the comfort level of democrats with Antifa. I can’t help but get the feeling that the members of Antifa would feel quite at home in Hilter’s brown shirts.

It’s even worse on social media. Little Markie, owner of FB and self appointed decider of what is fair, not only actively perpetrates the myth of peaceful Antifa but effectively bans any speech on his platform that shows their true colors. He has “Community Standards” you know. I guess his community standards include protecting violent thugs acting out against things little Markie thinks aren’t fair.

Then there is the alleged Mayor of Portland. This coward must have Vichy French blood in him because when the thugs he now protects surrounded his house in protest he instantly capitulated. This so called man has become virtually invisible since the Antifa outrage perpetrated in his city. Not even so much as the usual fake liberal promise, “We’ll do better in the future”. It has been widely reported for some time that he has ordered police to remain hands off when it comes to the terrorist thugs of Antifa. It appears that Antifa may now be ruling Portland, Oregon the way the Klan once ran large portions of the south.

Lets be clear, Antifa is part of an organized and discretely led and well funded behind the scenes, interstate conspiracy to deny civil rights to conservatives, members of religious groups or anyone they disagree with. They only have fear, intimidation and violence to offer. Making excuses for them makes you, in the gospel according to Sailor, an accomplice.

At the federal level there are long established procedures in the Justice Department for handling such malevolent groups. The employment of these tools against an active terrorist organization like Antifa is long overdue. However, given that the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division is over staffed with far left wing nut jobs, uhm, I mean career service employees, this is unlikely to happen any time soon. These professional haters seem to feel that only liberal African-Americans and the homersexual minorities are worthy of their protection.

A large part of taking America back from the paid professional haters like Antifa, their supporters, the main stream media talking heads or the afore mentioned career service employees is learning the real history of America. It involves understanding that America has spent the last two hundred plus years seeking to perfect the concepts of liberty, justice and equality. It involves knowing that while never perfect no country in the history of the world has done more good for more people than America. It involves accepting and implementing the concept of personal responsibility for one actions. It involves enjoying the fourth of July for the reason it was founded on.

Anything else is a win for Antifa.
