California Attacks Islam

What a salacious headline! Bear with me while I establish the background on AB 2943

I know, I know. You read about this bill on Snopes or FactCheck or Politifact or in your favorite mainstream media outlet, and believe these groups. Despite the fact that they didn’t bother quoting the relevant parts of the bill; the only quotes were merely assurances from its writers. Just like the folks at the San Diego Tribune, who I guess think that the writers and proponents of any piece of legislation should be believed regardless of what the words in the legislation actually say. Well didn’t California’s own Nancy Pelosi once say you have to pass the bill to know what’s in it (you’ll notice that ol’ snopey gives Pelosi the benefit of the doubt, and even tries to interpret her words for her, to the point where they answer “did Pelosi say x” with a “mixture of fact and truth”, as if somehow you can say something but NOT say it, and then they try to prove that! A courtesy snopey does not extend to the other side of the aisle.)?

These Lefty groups want this thing to be made into law, or they simply don’t think they have to do any research because a liberal reassured them. Well, read the bill for yourselves. It’s rather obvious our fact checkers and media are lying once again. Pretty much any time a liberal says some rightwing claim has been debunked, no matter how allegedly respectable the propaganda rag they write for is, you can bet your bottom dollar that they’re lying or their idea of “debunking” is simply to say “it’s not true” without presenting any evidence. Which leads to embarrassing retractions, like when the New York Times said it was a rightwing conspiracy theory that the Palestinians paid millions of dollars in pensions to the families of terrorists. NYT had to issue a retraction for that, even though if the author and editors and fact checkers had engaged for even the briefest of intervals in the act of journalism they would’ve realized that their biased opinion didn’t reflect reality and that statement never would’ve been published.

From now on, when referring to “articles” written in liberal “news” outlets such as Washington Post, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, CNN, BBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, etc I should refer to the reporters as “authors”, given how far removed from reality their “journalism” is. It’s like they took a cue from Obama, but instead of hiring an egotistical hack novelist who is neither experienced nor knowledgeable about national security to be National Security Advisor, the Leftstream media hired a bunch of egotistical novelist hacks as reporters. Meanwhile, the Left forgets Obama’s choice (and Obama’s pre-Presidential record) and constantly criticizes Trump for being inexperienced and picking inexperienced people. Psychologists call this “projection”- “humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.”

A Step Into The Left’s Mind

You see, to the Left, anything they say is the truth. That’s the rationale behind the protesters, whether it’s David Pigman or Sharpy Sharp And The Dull Bunch. Whether they’re protesting Trump’s victory or protesting the idea that people here illegally who had 6 years to register themselves with no penalty should’ve done so by now. Or a protesting mob of scientists who think faked data is grounds for worldwide communism and population control (I wonder what standards the Left will use to determine who lives or dies in their model, probably the same standard of who should be arrestedwhen legitimate, respected liberal thinkers start sounding like Bond villains you’d think that the Left might realize how far out they are, but nope, they simply double down and fight harder… guess that mentality explains all the nameless henchmen the Bond villains have). Doesn’t matter, liberalism today is about imposing your self-made factless reality on the rest of the world. That’s why we are told science is sexist because it deals in absolute truths. That’s why everyone gets their own truth that outweighs reality. In their minds, they might not actually be lying to you deliberately. Maybe the fact checkers and liberal media actually believe that if a liberal tells them something it must be the truth because liberals don’t lie. I mean, most women are liberal and we already know women can do no wrong, according to the feminists that liberals support. Lying would be included in that list of wrong things women can’t do.

 

''Panzer!''-AN-Ep06

The Left lives in a world just as magical, but a bit more trippy. Image from http://mahouka-koukou-no-rettousei.wikia.com

This denial of reality goes into why they are so violent towards anyone who opposes them. They KNOW they are right. They KNOW they are smarter than anyone else. If they truly believed there was another point of view, that would shatter their myth of superiority (so they want to ban anything that challenges how right they are, basically admitting that their worldview CANNOT hold up to scrutiny). Which is why they’re atheists too, by the way, they can’t tolerate the idea that they’re not at the top of the pecking order. But it’s also why they don’t listen- if they’re right, then you MUST be wrong if you disagree. For a group that supports more gender types than episodes of Star Trek that I’ve seen, they are EXTREMELY binary when it comes to worldview. You’re either with them, or against them. And you must be evil when you oppose them, because they know they are right, so if they’re right and YOU claim to be right too, that must mean you’re a liar, and since everything a liberal stands for is good, that must mean you stand for evil because you oppose them. That really is their worldview. Just ask. And there certainly aren’t any facts opposing my claim, in fact every day there is more support to my assertion that this childish reasoning is all they have. Diversity of flesh, but not diversity of thought, to the point that you are judged by the color of your skin rather than the content of your character… unless you have the appropriate skin color but DON’T think appropriately.

Or Maybe I Misjudged The Case Here

The other alternative of course as I mentioned is that the fact checkers read the bill, and LOVED what they saw, but that again goes towards the whole “we have our own truth that we’re imposing on you” thing. In the Left’s mind, religion is a blight on society (just read the comments section for any given YouTube video touching on religion). It’s the sole cause of wars and the Dark Ages and what holds everyone back from being peaceful communists living together. Ok, that’s overgeneralizing, CHRISTIANITY is a blight on society. Just ask Senator Cory Booker (D), who unilaterally did the very unconstitutional thing of giving a Trump nominee a religious test, and attacked his beliefs later… but seems fine with having an Islamic Deputy Chair. You know, Islam, the religion that’s usually MORE oppressive than Christianity. Liberals are cool with every religion* except Christianity, and also aren’t cool with a Jew that’s pro-Israel. Or rich. Or… ok, they hate Jews too but not as openly. They see Christians (and Jews) as ignorant savages and see religion as an oppressive force so naturally any bill that attacks it gets a pass, like say the bill I start this article with.

*for you Shintoists in the audience who might note that I only mention 3 religions above, the Left ignores your existence unless someone in your group runs counter to their ideology, much like how it treats Asian Americans when they talk about the prejudices they face– see the section above on skin color for more details on this pattern

They don’t see the bill or similar items as an attack; they see it as a means of educating the population, a means of suppressing misinformation (afterall, like everything else in the liberal world, religion is just caused by some outside condition, akin to their reasoning for why whites are always privileged and blacks are always oppressed). Which makes me wonder now if people in China and North Korea genuinely believe that “re-education” camps are merely learning institutions, because if liberals pulled that same thing here you can bet anything from dollars to navy beans that Snopes would believe whatever they’re told about the camps as long as the source was a liberal.

To The Bill At Hand

So I’ve established that the bill can be used in an extremely anti-Christian way if you read it rather than listen to its leftwing advocates, as the fact checkers and our allegedly free press did, and I explained why the Left wouldn’t bother reading the bill itself and just rest with the assurances of its authors, but I have yet to explain how the terrifying headline is anything close to accurate. Well, you see all this evidence about how the language in the bill puts Bibles on the chopping block and makes it so it would be illegal for churches to ask for donations or even be funded, all because of what the Bible says about homosexuals, can be used against Islam too. So let’s see what Imams and the Koran say about gays…

Islamic scholars overwhelmingly teach that same-gender sex is a sin.

The Muslim holy book, the Koran, tells the story of Lot and the destruction of Sodom – and sodomy in Arabic is known as “liwat,” based on Lot’s name.

Men having sex with each other should be punished, the Koran says, but it doesn’t say how – and it adds that they should be left alone if they repent.

The death penalty instead comes from the Hadith, or accounts of the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. The accounts differ on the method of killing, and some accounts give lesser penalties in some circumstances. “

Noble Verses 26:165-166, 27:55, 29:28-29 were sent to me by brother Bassam Zawadi, may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him:

“Would ye really approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, ye are a people (grossly) ignorant!  (The Noble Quran, 27:55)”

“And (remember) Lut: behold, he said to his people: “Ye do commit lewdness, such as no people in Creation (ever) committed before you. “Do ye indeed approach men, and cut off the highway?- and practise wickedness (even) in your councils?” But his people gave no answer but this: they said: “Bring us the Wrath of God if thou tellest the truth.”  (The Noble Quran, 29:28-29)

Also, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said:

‘Abd al-Rahman, the son of Abu Sa’id al-Khudri, reported from his father: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said:  “A man should not see the private parts of another man, and a woman should not see the private parts of another woman, and a man should not lie with another man under one covering, and a woman should not lie with another woman under one covering.   (Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book of Menstruation (Kitab Al-Haid), Book 003, Number 0667)” “

Gee, under this bill you wonder how anything Islamic involving the exchange of money wouldn’t be banned. And no, that part about gays repenting is NOT enough to let Islam get a pass if it were treated equally, because if you’d read the sources you’d know that the bill dealt with anything that attempts to say homosexuality is wrong. Repenting is the act of admitting you are wrong. (I’m going to love reading the comments that say my use of Koran quotes means I’m a bigot for explaining this detail about Islam in its own words. As if liberal Marie Harf dictating what a group of Muslims believe contrary to what the group itself said wasn’t bigoted. And as for repenting, California already has a bill that makes it illegal for heterosexuals who were molested by someone of the same sex to obtain psychological treatment for any homosexual feelings that may have come from that trauma, so it’s rather obvious California wouldn’t look kindly upon repenting either)

So Where Are The Outraged Muslims?

hijab-american-getreligion

Intersectionality works because Muslims have a thing called “taqiyya“- they can lie to infidels and pretend to have beliefs which they really don’t so long as it advances Islam. Kinda explains Linda Sarsour, either that or she is functionally illiterate. Image from GetReligion

Well, this is where we get into something called “selective enforcement”. There are way too many laws on the books to enforce against everyone who violates them. Due to the amount of regulations on the books, we’re all guilty of a crime whether we know it or not. We all probably commit one every day whether we know it or not. Your kids aren’t safe either, 12 year olds in the U.S. have been handcuffed for eating french fries. Heck, I bet none of you reported your eBay purchases to the IRS this past tax day. That leaves the government with a disturbing option- all of its opponents are guilty of something, so go after them while ignoring the violations of its friends.

 

The Muslims know that the Left is their bestest good buddy. Muslims won’t bite the hand that feeds them. Not yet. Remember- the Left claims slavery is freedom when it comes to Islam. The Left declared Islamist Linda Sarsour, who believes in an oppressive version of Islam and called for a jihad against Trump, to be a feminist celebrity. The Left almost fetishizes the oppression of women under Islam, claiming that symbols of such oppression are symbols of liberation (contrary to the opinion of people who had live with said oppression, but the Left loves dictating what people should think from its guarded fantasy world). Heck, liberals think so much of Islam that they cheered Palestine’s flag being waved at the Democratic National Convention, whereas no American flags were even present. At first, but the physical ones wheeled in were kind of off to the side in the shadows. Liberal anti-Israeli protesters did bring an Israeli flag too, but they burned it. They burned American flags too.

More importantly and pertinently to the “selective enforcement” argument, consider this: how many Muslim bakers have been forced out of business over discrimination? None. How about Christian ones? Get the picture?

And of course we have the liberals Europe, the ones that the Left tell us we should be more like, letting the Muslims get away with rape gangs that had thousands of victims, blaming the victims of said rapes, because the police and government are too scared of being labelled as racists. In fact, they’ve even said that people reporting on these crimes were racist and gave the rapists lighter sentences because they were not white and their victims were. UK’s government believes that rape is not a serious crime if the victim is white and the rapist is not, that is what their own internal conclusion is. Germany took the approach of siding with the Muslims and saying the rape victims were responsible for what their attackers did. So Muslims know that if the Left literally will let them get away with raping the Left’s own kids (or let a Muslim get away with assault because in the Judge’s mind, a judge who threatened the victim, Islam takes precedence over the First Amendment… and for you women out there, even in America those liberal activist judges I alluded to think a Muslim should be allowed to rape you), then they’ll certainly give the Islamic faith a pass when it comes to this bill.

peace-symbol

So I guess Democrats and Islam have something else in common- peace is so old school for both of them.

You’ll notice I didn’t distinguish between “radical” Islam and ‘regular’ Islam. That’s because I’m trying NOT to insult the Muslims. I’m not Muslim, so I have no right to make that distinction. The whole sectarian struggle in the Middle East is about what version of Islam is extremist and which is not. I can say I like certain brands, but I’m not going to decide which one is radical because quite frankly if you ever read the Koran ALL THE WAY THROUGH and the hadiths too you’d notice that ISIS is acting mostly as an adherent to the rules (later, violent sayings and stories overrule older and peaceful ones, so Islamic scholars of Islam currently and historically said- this is called “abrogation”), whereas if you stopped reading while Mohammed was still in Mecca you’d think that the peaceful Westernized vision was the true way. Me saying “radical” here is no different than if a Muslim were to say Protestants had it right and Catholics were the radicals, from a Christian point of view.  I don’t want to encourage certain groups by saying “radical” Islam is bad, because to each group there’s another group that IS radical Islam (even non-Muslims disagree on what “radical” is, with the SPLC saying someone who is against “radical” Islam is in fact a “radical” Islamic extremist), so instead I’ll encourage them all to clean house and get their defecation consolidated by lumping the bad and good together as simply Muslims, much like the Left always does with Christians.

The point is: if this bill is passed, there will be legal grounds to attack your religion, Mr.-or-Mrs.-Muslim-what-reads-this. Once the Right is gone, if you think the Left’s not going to put up a fight against you, you’re very naïve. Just like any liberal who doesn’t think that the Alliance To End Republicans (or Hulkamania) will fall to pieces once that common enemy is obliterated. I mean come on, do you seriously suspect that your whole intersectionality idea will hold you together with all those ideologies competing against each other? The only glue holding you together is your common hatred for certain groups, so you will desperately try to find one boogeyman after another to hate against in order to maintain your power. That’s probably also why the only emotions we see from you are hate-based: if you didn’t spend every minute of every day filling your mind with hate for your common enemy, differences between you and your allies might just enter into your mind.

I’ll cover what happens with that in another piece, but Harvey Weinstein was just a preview, as was the mention of Asians earlier. You can also look at how your side treats blacks from Africa to see the state of your so-called tolerance. You see, apparently there was an “African Holocaust” in the U.S., and according to the Left and the few african americans who claim to suffer from said holocaust (obviously they feel black Americans are superior to Jews or anyone else who experienced a real genocide), folks from Africa are wealthy (compared to the holocaust-stricken  African Americans) and never had any problems. Ever. So I guess these conflicting worldviews that will come to blows once there isn’t a common enemy are what happens when we each have our own truths, like African Americans who think they’re worse off than folks in Darfur (and liberal women who think Islam is a model for achieving a feminist utopia).

If You Still Believe The Bill’s Authors And Media, Even Over The Language Of The Bill Itself

And for those on the Left, who would be glad the above lies were told and see no problem with them nor the results of the laws that came to pass because of these lies, I present the below so that you may have empathy for my position:

You don’t believe Trump, you claim he’s a liar, well I just outlined how YOU TOO are a liar, so why would I EVER believe the assurances of your lawmakers on this matter, ESPECIALLY when the freakin’ BILL ITSELF says the opposite of what its writers and your “fact checkers” are telling us! “Fact Checker” is now an Orwellian euphemism, they belong to the Left’s “Ministry of Truth”. This bill does not target Christians/Muslims, chocolate rations are up 20%, and we’ve always been at war with Eurasia (a terrifying example of life imitating art thanks to the DNC’s sudden anti-Russian-warmongering furor, and remember: it’s been nearly 2 years and we STILL don’t know if the Russians hacked the DNC! And no, 17 intel agencies DID NOT say that Russia did it no matter how much liberals want to memory hole the truth. Read the news sometime! And ask the DNC why it destroyed evidence if it’s so eager to show Russia is behind its hacking, and ask why the DNC ironically set itself up for being accused of the crime of destroying evidence by claiming that hacking its servers was a criminal act by Trump and Russia).

Computer Companies Cripple Constitution

Microsoft_Logo

image from Microsoft.com

If you have Windows 10, Microsoft is monitoring everything you type. It’s already bad enough that the NSA immediately flags you if you start doing a web search for certain terms, terms that don’t even have anything to do with classified info or national security risks or crimes in general. Now we have to worry that anything we type at all will flag us for censorship. Even liberals have to worry, particularly if they aren’t Left enough or their stock-in-trade is quoting conservatives and then attacking them. “Correction” AI makes no distinction between friend or foe, if you type it you’re wrong. We’re not at the AI stage yet except on social media, but if you think Microsoft will continue to employ censors when it can simply program them then you’ve got another thing coming.

And to up the ante, Microsoft has released a new user agreement effective May 1 2018 that makes it a violation of their terms to use their software for “hate speech“. In violating the terms, they can suspend your account and remove your ability to use Microsoft products. Microsoft, being a liberal company like all of Silicon Valley, has a definition of what hate speech is that’s doubtlessly at odds with half the country and the President of the United States. In fact, liberals like those at Microsoft are of a mind to ban free speech altogether, claiming it leads to violence (which is true, what the Left defines as “hate speech” usually leads to liberals trying to murder conservatives, or demanding it and just beating people or using threats to silence dissent, knowing full well that their position is so indefensible that it would never withstand intellectual scrutiny, so they have to physically or verbally attack anyone with a different view). Keep in mind that government offiicials use Microsoft products- how long will it be before Microsoft decides to disable the Trump Administration over some hate speech issue?

Oh, and for you angry liberals out there, you also can’t swear. And Microsoft says it can examine your personal files if someone complains to them about you. Granted, you liberals might get a pass because of the “selective enforcement” thing I mentioned in my piece “California Attacks Islam” (I’d link it, but I’m writing this while that one still hasn’t been posted).

What Does This Mean?

Anti-Trump-Riots-AP_RWC_Fox_quora

The kindly, dignified group of young people expressing grievances against President Trump in a civilized manner pictured above will be the ones deciding if what a Conservative says constitutes “hate speech”. Well… if you want to know what something is, you go to the experts. Images from AP, Fox News, Quora, and RWC News

If you’re a liberal, it means nothing at all. Just like with Facebook, the folks at Microsoft are hardcore liberals. Just like with Facebook, they will use their power only against their political opponents, never a liberal (that’s far enough Left). Remember: liberals are the biggest purveyors of the notion that “hate speech” should be banned to begin with; by the very act of putting that into their service agreement Microsoft is showing its political bias and anti-First Amendment attitude. Their new terms of service for some of their products, taken with their proclivity for recording everything you type, hits a new level of scary because basically anything you’ve typed can be leaked to the public. The only thing stopping it is just how merciful a liberal will feel towards you after they lost an election.

It’s already bad enough what accusations of “hate speech” can do. Mobs are formed, people are threatened, Democrat officials demand free speech not happen because of the risk to the public from liberal mobs (a nice little cycle: liberals threaten violence against a conservative, so a liberal in authority silences the conservative in the name of public safety, thus encouraging liberal protesters to threaten even more speakers that the liberal in authority doesn’t think should have voices anyway), and now Microsoft will go through (and doubtlessly leak) your personal information. You don’t have to worry about anonymous trolls or CNN doxxing you, now it’s Microsoft itself that’s coming after you for having opposing political views.

The Left figured it out. They failed in election after election, so now instead of repealing the First Amendment legally they’re just using their power to get the same effect. I doubt they remember when they kept telling us to respect the “law of the land“, just like how they forgot about Obama delegitimizing the Democrats’ current #resistance/riots/obstructionism/First Amendment fight when he said “You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election… but don’t break it”.

What Can We Do?

max-zorin-a-view-to-a-kill-squiggly's

30 years ago there was a visionary who tried to raise venture capital to save us from this Silicon Valley scourge. Sadly, the surveillance-state loving British Government stopped him. Yes, given how many death threats (and what best can be described as death porn and calls for genocide) the Left has made, including one using another Christopher Walken movie, I’m totally comfortable making this joke. Image from Squiggly’s

Do all of your work on a Linux system. Use different word processors. Good luck boycotting Microsoft. If anything this latest move will encourage the Chinese government and strongmen worldwide (that liberals like those at Microsoft who complain Trump’s attacks on the press enable) to invest in Microsoft because Microsoft just vowed to fight free speech. Never judge a liberal’s intent by their words; only judge by their actions.

You’ll notice that I DIDN’T say Apple was an alternative. They’ve done their share of fighting the first amendment, as has Google (so don’t bother with Google docs and gmail, they have your browser history, your emails, and even your movements tracked via your phone). Oh yeah, and like Microsoft the liberals at Apple are more than happy to complain about Trump enabling oppressive governments with his attacks on the press while Apple itself works with the Chinese government to censor the views of the population, thus enabling the very strongmen that they attack Trump for enabling.

Taken As A Whole

  • Liberals reacted violently to Trump winning, to the point of committing acts that legally should be considered domestic terrorism (ie violent acts designed to intimidate or coerce the government and civilian population, with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and current Senator Tim Kaine having encouraged such terrorism)
  • Liberals committed acts of violence against Trump supporters
  • Liberals believe the above violence is justified, that any violence against speech they dislike is justified
  • Liberals believe speech is equal to physical violence
  • Liberals believe speech must be censored (and that the First Amendment plus other Constitutional protections should be abolished)
  • Microsoft records everything you type
  • Microsoft will come after you if you offend their liberal sensibilities

Does anyone else find it ironic that liberals whine about corporations taking over society, but then liberal companies with liberal values do just that as liberals cheer them on?

As for the rest of us- only use your Microsoft stuff for games, use Linux, use every bit of anonymity you can on the internet (Tor browser, proxy servers, etc), and grab a gun for the day you’re eventually doxxed and physically attacked for your beliefs. No, censorship is not that bad in America yet, Microsoft hasn’t started banning people and leaking their personal info (like say social security numbers and bank account info, in addition to addresses and names) for having the wrong political views yet, but the instrumentality to do it all is in place. The Left loves to ask gun owners why they’d have a gun if not to kill someone, well I ask them why would the Left take the above steps if they had no intention of being oppressors?

Of course, as I mentioned in the article “California Attacks Islam” (still not posted, even several paragraphs in, though I wrote this citation prior to the one above. Welcome to editing), the Left and liberals reading this don’t see themselves as oppressors, and in fact don’t even understand how this could be seen as oppressive. It’s a startlingly common mantra by the Left when it comes to leaking private info of someone on the right- if you’ve done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide (sometimes in those words, so I guess the Left hates the Fifth Amendment too, but also by demanding transparency and dismissing privacy concerns, but only when it’s related to the opposition). Why worry about liberals having this much power over you?

Yes, I’m painting the Left with a broad brush. As I said, judge them by their actions. Who on the Left is calling Microsoft/Apple/Facebook/Google out on their censorship? How many on the Left have said this is an issue? How many on the Left have signed petitions against or boycotted these liberal tech giants? They’re happy to boycott Fox News hosts for insulting liberal cheerleaders, or Breitbart for reporting actual news that liberal journalists refuse to touch (and because their guy helped Trump win, literally starting a boycott because their side lost an election), but they don’t dare touch tech giants that are waging war on the First Amendment? Think about it.

The Ol’ ULTRA Violence

CIA-Seal-wikimedia

“Of course I was a very minor missionary, actually a heretic, but I toiled wholeheartedly in the vineyards because it was fun, fun, fun. Where else could a red-blooded American boy lie, kill and cheat, steal, deceive, rape and pillage with the sanction and blessing of the All-Highest?” -CIA Agent George White, in a letter to agency chemist and poison expert Sidney Gottlieb.

Well, if we elect more Democrats, I’d say anywhere in the country Mr. White so long as you remained in good standing with the party. But we’ll circle back to this in a moment. As the CIA did here, we know that Dems just love victims that can’t fight back.

ULTRA Man

Project MK ULTRA was the CIA’s attempt to understand mind control. What could go wrong? In the wake of the Korean War we saw supposedly brainwashed American POW’s and our government was curious about this. So instead of starting a fake war with aliens like any normal government the CIA decided to learn about how our POW’s could be brainwashed by trying to brainwash people themselves. They tried a bunch of stuff, from drugs to electroshock therapy. The tests were done at hospitals, prisons, and universities.

The CIA also conducted business at CIA safe houses. Government-employed prostitutes would lure people to those safe houses, slip them a mickey, and CIA agents would watch and record. This is what Mr. White was referring to above. CIA agents would often get a little carried away in the merriment, all on the taxpayer’s dime. Like when the IRS went to Disneyland. As you can imagine, this phase of the program (appropriately called “Operation Midnight Climax”) had very little oversight.

Not Quite Legal

The CIA abducted and spied on people while dosing them up with drugs, without their consent. They hired prostitutes. The CIA is limited to what it can do domestically, but I guess hiring prostitutes, kidnapping, drugging, and spying on the results doesn’t technically violate their charter, since it only forbids them from doing law enforcement or internal security work domestically. After revelations of these activities from the Church Committee, President Gerald Ford signed an executive order saying this was totally not cool guys.

wp-1473803210459.jpg

Frank Church wanted this guy to like him.

And before you point out that the head of the Church Committee, Frank Church, was a Democrat thus proving that my snarky remark at the top of this piece is invalid, let me remind you that he was one of those EEEEEVVVIIILLLLL Democrat racists who you tell us switched parties to become Republican (Church reportedly didn’t care about black people, and only pretended because he wanted a favor from President Johnson later), so this is not a valid means of criticism for you unless you want to admit that the Leftwing narrative about the great Republican racist switcheroo is a lie.

 

ULTRA Apathy

Why should any of this matter? Government agency in charge of protecting our lives endangers them instead, no oversight, party-like atmosphere with prostitutes. Remind me again which political party wants us to trust the government in all things? Which party abhors oversight (or at least thinks it has no usefulness when a Democrat is in the White House)? Which party doesn’t even pay lip service to the idea of ending wasteful spending? The same party that tried to keep the American flag from being displayed at their convention for determining their Presidential candidate. I wonder why.

Trust The Government

Do you trust the government? This goes into why we should remember MK ULTRA; it seems we never quite learned the proper lessons of government accountability and transparency from it.

Let’s take a look at the Secret Service under President Obama. Incompetent, to say the least. The White House ended up taking a few bullets, and a man with a knife made it all the way into the building after hopping the fence. A member of the President’s last line of defense was found passed-out drunk in a hallway. The White House itself ignored some of these issues. Literally the life of their hero and boss Obama was on the line, but they ignored the problem.

Let’s take a look at the IRS scandal under President Obama. Conservatives are targeted. There’s one token firing. Years later, Conservative groups STILL don’t have tax-exempt status that was originally held-up by the IRS. And yet during all of this, even after hearings on IRS waste, the IRS demands more money from sympathetic Democrats, while Democrats dismiss and downplay claims of targeting (there’s a piece at verdict.justia.com titled “The Damage In The Wake of the Non-Scandal At The IRS” that Google saw fit to place as the second result of a search I did in which not only is the IRS case is dismissed as a non-event while perpetuating 5 year old myths that had been debunked, but the piece also denies the existence of the deep state, and Google result number 4 was a Newsweek article from 2017 saying the IRS scandal was fake news created by Republicans despite the IRS apologizing for it just 17 days after the Newsweek article was published, as well as several other scandals, while telling tried and true lies- like by saying the targeting stopped and telling the lie that Democrats are timid, it’s typical of bullies like the Democrats to pretend to be the victims. I also want to point out that this Newsweek article levels the criticism of “the investigations took forever and found no evidence yet they still believed the myth” at the Republicans, which Newsweek and doubtlessly the political hack author Neil Buchanan who has less credibility than his idols at Glavlit are reluctant to bring against Democrats over the Trump-Russia tale).

Let’s take a look at the DEA prostitution scandal under President Obama. The head of the agency said she didn’t have the power to discipline employees. It was up to an internal committee of unelected/unappointed (by Presidents) bureaucrats to police this agency.

Or how about that time the Obama Administration forced an Inspector General to stop looking into a friend of Obama’s who misused government funds, which sent a clear message to the rest of the Inspector Generals not to do anything unfriendly towards the President or his allies.

Meanwhile, the Obama Administration claims there were no scandals during it, and no one in the Leftstream media challenges that narrative. Do you think the CIA would be handled differently if caught in a scandal?

So How Would MK ULTRA Go Over Today?

obama_stern-face

“We’re your government. We’re the good guys!” Watchers, 1983, and apparently Barack Obama, 2013. Image from evil.news

Well, we already know the CIA Director can lie to Congress under oath and get away with it. We already know that Democrats can get away with saying there were no scandals in their Administrations. We know the NSA can get away with spying on Americans, Obama just has to tell us we can trust the government, maybe in a soft appearance on our favorite late-night shows.

We actually can kind of guess the rest, using Hillary Clinton’s email scandal as a model. Hillary wiped her servers to remove the evidence. It’s the 21st century afterall, the age of MK ULTRA and their Ollie North-brand file shredders is long over, but the firm that cleaned Hillary’s service lacked the CIA’s common sense and bragged about it. Some sympathetic deep staters would investigate and find no wrongdoing even before they interview half the witnesses, including the star one. The Democrat President would say people acted carelessly, and an exoneration letter would be drafted around that same time saying exactly that. Then the media would tell us there was no scandal, just hysterical Republicans.

So if Hillary can destroy evidence, endanger lives, lie under oath to Congress about possession of classified materials and various other things, threaten to fire the Inspector General investigating her, and be cleared of all charges in time for the election then surely the CIA would too have been given nary a slap on the wrist.

How Come You’ve Never Heard Of MK ULTRA?

It’s almost like it never happened. You’d think even the Republicans would be referencing it as an example of the deep state gone rogue, what with the CIA committing illegal acts against thousands of Americans. This didn’t even hit the headlines when the Unabomber was caught- he was one of the subjects of the CIA’s experiments. Take a look at this article from The Atlantic- NOTHING is mentioned about the CIA’s possible involvement.

Unabomber-sketch-wikimedia

But remember kiddies- the government will be your friend throughout your life! Image from wikimedia commons

The Unabomber was only 17 years old, a math prodigy studying at Harvard. One of his trusted professors put him through this. The CIA experiments, which consisted of sessions held across 3 years, were designed to destroy his core beliefs. Well it worked: after the experiments he was mentally warped and thus 6 years after the experiments would’ve ended he started his nationwide bombing campaign.

The casual disregard for lives exhibited by government agents, scientists, doctors, and psychologists during all of this is rather stunning, though I guess after all that human experimentation in World War II I can’t say I was surprised. Just disappointed that it happened here, especially since our intellectual elite loves to tell us how superior they are. Definitely something to consider the next time you hear a climate scientist demand we adopt a totalitarian government, and demand control of how/whether people live. Since most of these professionals are Democrats anyway, I can’t say I’m surprised. It just confirms some of the worst stereotypes about them and their chosen party.

Speaking Of Democrats

russdem

Only a conspiracy theorist believes in MK ULTRA. By the way, did you hear how Trump is really a Russian agent?

Over at Leftwing rag “The Daily Beast”, we have Rick Wilson telling us that Republicans who defend Trump against the Russian Collusion accusations are engaging in “wild-eyed MK-ULTRA paranoiac raving”. For one thing, he only presents insults to back his claims (whereas my insults usually orbit around facts, pardon the preening acknowledgement of my own flaw). Claims which clearly can’t be trusted, as his choice of presenting MK ULTRA as something only a crazy person would believe in demonstrates. He does not even have the knowledge which fellow liberals have of those events, thus it is doubtful that for his rambling chain of ad hominem attacks there could be found a factual basis. It also appears he is impugning the credibility of said liberals.

Moreover, if Republicans are really as deluded as this screaming tantrum indicates, then surely after a year the Mueller investigation would’ve produced something against Trump. Right? Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told us in March 2017 that they already had beyond circumstantial evidence of Trump colluding. Surely that would’ve been leaked by him, master leaker that he is, or at least released out of spite once the GOP ended the House’s investigation, and Mueller certainly could use that tipoff. At the very least the GOP would’ve debunked said evidence in their summary. And let’s not forget- a crippled GOP with only Fox News to help managed to prove malfeasance by the IRS in 2013 within several months, much less than 12. Surely the Mueller probe with the full apparatus of the mainstream media and its legions of journalists at its disposal would’ve produced some smidgen of evidence by now. But instead it seems all they’ve produced is an army of Rick Wilsons with their tales told by idiots full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Aside from the form of insults and a scattered few articles, there isn’t much in the way of widespread talk about MK ULTRA. At the time of the revelations of course the networks covered it, but this bit of deep statism was memory holed pretty quick. Perhaps because the program allegedly ended (can you really trust the CIA to obey an executive order after breaking several laws to begin with?), it just isn’t considered a noteworthy pursuit.

Or maybe because it’s a grim reminder of what happens when the government gets too much power. Maybe it’s Plan B if this Mueller thing doesn’t produce anything useful. We already have an army of anti-Trump bureaucrats leaking secrets left and right just to spite the President, we have an admitted conspiracy by anti-Trump law enforcement officials to take out Trump (their insurance policy), we have the Obama Administration spying on Trump’s campaign, you have liberals all over the spectrum calling for Trump’s death and other forms of violence against both him and Republicans in general (while those in charge of handling such matters ignored it because they were Democrats), so would another Strzok still stuck in the government deciding on dosing Trump’s morning coffee with some surplus LSD really be such a far-fetched thing?

Another Hiatus

Hey guys. It sucks the first post from me in so many months has to be bad news, but thems tha breaks!! Right now I am having a hard time keeping up with work AND reviewing content, so to take the pressure off I am putting the blog on hiatus till June. Don’t be bummed though, when we come back there will be tons of fun content from both myself and Mr. F.L.A.G., and this hiatus will give us plenty of no stress time to develop our work. Thanks for your patience.

Zelda II: The Adventure Of Link (GBA)

Zelda-II-NES-GBA

Why would you pay $9.99 to get Zelda II on the GBA when you could be paying $9.99 for one month of the WWE Network?

It’s in the Zelda series, and Link is there, and he has an adventure. The end.

You’re off to a running start with Princess Zelda napping in the background. Link must retrieve a piece of the Triforce in order to wake her up, by uniting all pieces of the Triforce. Remember: these games took place a long time ago, a real long time ago, way before Levi Hutchins invented alarm clocks. They had to do some complicated Rube Goldberg Machine stuff in order to wake up, made even more complicated by the fact that Goldberg hadn’t debuted yet.

WCW_Goldberg_WWE

As evidenced in the picture, this conspiracy involves your state troopers and your local Police Department. Image of Goldberg from wwe.com

Hmmmm… Goldberg… Zelda 2 came in a gold cartridge… the opening notes for the music when you enter a village sound like notes from the song “Goldfinger”… the Triforce is golden… the final castle has a golden hue to it… all of the pieces fit Robin! Ganon plans to steal the Triforce from Fort Knox!

Speaking of Bat-Logic

I just want to point out that I cheated a little and used an online strategy guide. In my defense, there is no way that some of these puzzles could have been solved without one, unless there was something in the instruction manual (which I don’t have). Seriously- to get to a vital town you need to hack a forest to bits. Except in this game, the only hackable trees are the ones in that small area surrounding the hidden village, and at no point are you told or even given a hint that you even can hack trees, let alone that particular grouping.

Same goes for a monster sitting in the middle of the road. If this weren’t a carbon copy of waking Snorlax, complete with Pokeflute, I’d have had no idea about what I needed to do. I guess eventually I’d figure it out, by standing there and mashing buttons after obtaining the flute.

I Need Guidance, Great One

As I was reviewing the palace 6 section of the guide, I noticed that it was saying the

knights on horseback you face there are repeats of an earlier boss. I didn’t remember it, but attributed that to the 2 year gap between now and when I last put the game down. Turns out that I didn’t remember it because it was the boss of palace 3, the only boss that I skipped, probably because I wandered into the palace, grabbed the raft, then left thinking I could skip the boss. Or died and was curious about where the raft would take me and forgot all about beating the boss. If you get to palace 7 and the shield refuses to lower, then check how many crystals you have left (the blue circle icon on the start menu, you lose one after beating a palace).

My point is- make sure you get the required item from the palace AND defeat the boss. I don’t know what happens if you skip the item and beat the boss, but having to restart the game is not a risk worth taking.

You are also best served by using the guide to locate vital items like the 4 magic containers and the 4 heart containers. And level all the way up as soon as you can. It helps. You max out at level 8, by the way. Leveling up after that just gives you an extra life. There are also extra lives to be found throughout the overworld, but they can only be grabbed once. Come to think of it… while writing this I just solved a 2 year old mystery. I grabbed one of the extra lives and had no idea I had done so, because it was absolutely useless to me.

Also, be skeptical of any boss strategies the guides give you. For example, the one I used

said that the final battle (spoiler alert: it was against The Enemy Within) could easily be won by standing in a corner. I had no health and no magic left, but I thought it’d be a piece of cake since all I had to do was stand in the corner. The first thing the opponent did was jump up and stab me from above. So much for the guide’s credibility. Plus if you stay crouched in the corner, eventually that boss will just stand in the middle of the screen and do nothing for long periods.

Morty_Gengar_bulbapedia

I considered making like this blog’s venerable creator and posting a sexy pic of The Enemy Within (lots of them out there), but when I realized he was only 16 discretion and fear of the SVU prevailed. But I reached an epiphany- in this game, this so-called Enemy Within is in fact a Gengar. Pictured here is Morty’s Gengar. Image from Bulbapedia

Fortunately for the final palace, which I found rather difficult to get to, unlike with the other palaces once you enter it if you run out of lives you can just select “continue” and you will start out at the entrance to it. Be advised: any of the red magic potions you pickup will still be gone after you lose all your lives and hit “continue”. They only come back if you restart the game. Luckily the fairy stays. Since I found a way to budget lives and magic, you should be able to too. I say this with full confidence in the certainty that I am terrible at video games. Another convenience is that when you beat the first of the two bosses at the final palace it stays dead even if you run out of lives. I know because when The Enemy Within killed me it was my last life. It took the last health of my last life.

Problems

Everything mentioned above as such, of course.

The version I played fixed the following issue: on the NES release, the only way to save is to lose all of your lives. On the Game Boy Advance version you just pause the game on the overworld and press up plus either a or b. Or just buy the Famicom Disk version.

Zelda-II-second-quest-menu

Ready for round two?

I won’t mention the lack of a second quest. I mean, there is one, but unlike the first Zelda game everything this time around is exactly the same as it was before. The only difference is you start with all of the spells and fully levelled up. You will still have to hunt for the 4 magic extenders and 4 life extenders. So aside from that it’s pretty much what happens in Super Mario 64 once you get all the stars- no new quests, but you can play the old ones over again with a fancy skill you didn’t have the first go-around.

I guess I ended up mentioning the lack of a second quest anyway, but I don’t see that as a

Zelda-II-Zelda-Overworld-VGMaps

So tiny that Zelda 1 felt compelled to buy a Ferrari and spend all of its spare time at the gym. Original image from VGMaps.

problem since the game’s big enough for just one playthrough to feel sufficient (I think, my playthrough took 2 years… technically, 22 years given that I first played the game in the 90s), leading into another nitpicking- the entirety of the map for the first game, that you spend hours wandering through, is scaled down and displayed as a few tiles towards the bottom of Zelda 2’s expansive overworld. Part of me likes the reference, but part of me thinks that sort of trivializes everything from the first game. That adventure seems so small now. No… the adventure is big, it’s the overworld that got small.

But in-universe, in Zelda 2, how did Link so easily work his Peter Pan/Legolas-lovechild-twink self through the Zelda 1 overworld when in Zelda 1 you couldn’t go beyond that area? Hyrulean magic and technology were not up to the task of building a path! Either that or one of the cave shopkeepers or palaces was blocking the route, and Hyrulean officials decided to exercise their eminent domain powers to seize those areas and open them up for public travel.

You might expect me to rip on the change in format from the first and third game (and the Game Boy games) like everyone else does. Battles fought in a sidescroller style, leveling up, stuff like that. Nope. I had no problem with this.

Fascist Fascination

20840534_1946333158973455_248823246_nDavid Hogg, one of the brats who liberals tell us has moral superiority and is beyond criticism on every issue because he survived a shooting (meanwhile, the Left tells us veterans and victims like with Benghazi have no moral authority and in fact are liars, even going so far as to downplay the terrorist attack or hide it) has started a boycott of Laura Ingraham because she rightly pointed out he is a whiny little baby. Not because of his anti-gun activism, not because he refuses to accept the idea of reinforcing schools rather than violating people’s 2nd Amendment rights (Hogg even came out against teachers being armed, noting that because law enforcement in his area consisted of democrat cowards that teachers would be no different, forgetting, of course, the uncountable times armed police and civilians have stopped shooters, but remember: this is an impudent child) , not because he’s a typical liberal activist (meaning that when he was born, he screamed and waved his fists like everyone else, but unlike everyone else he never stopped), but rather because he is complaining that colleges were rejecting him. Yup, over a small but true insult irrelevant to gun activism, Laura Ingraham lost a double-digit number of sponsors because David Hogg is a spoiled brat that can’t take the least little criticism, which probably explains why he and his fellow babies refuse to debate on gun control and indeed refuse to acknowledge that another side to the issue exists. A side which acknowledges little things like how gun-free London has a higher murder rate than gun-ridden NYC (London has about 3% more people than NYC, but if the Left’s lies about gun control are to be believed then London shouldn’t even have half the murder rate of NYC).

I find it ironic that with the left’s unconditional support for abortion, attempts to dehumanize babies in the womb, and the NY State Attorney General saying that babies in the womb are aggressors and abortion is self-defense, we have the Left parading a bunch of babies in front of us. I’m also gratified to be able to reasonably predict that once the current firestorm over shootings ceases, kids like Hogg will suddenly find their platform yanked out from under them (just ask the DREAMers about being abandoned). Or maybe even find themselves labeled as racists. Given their elementary us vs. them “I’m always right” attitude, maybe they can get a job with Antifa, but don’t expect to get paid on time. At least they have some leftwing activism on their resumes already, pre-shooting, which kind of explains what’s happening now.

gun-control-david-hogg

Look carefully and you’ll see puppet strings. Look too closely and you’ll see a child whose mommy and daddy clearly didn’t believe in spankings.

By the way- you may have noticed that while the Left is parading the anti-gun students around because it matches their agenda, they’re ignoring or even attacking students or families of victims who are not towing the gun control line. And of David Hogg in particular, let me ask you: how many of you when you were 17 years old regularly used phrases like “living wage“, “white privilege“, and “wrong side of history“? Are you going to argue he’s mature for his age? Intelligent? Remember: he was rejected from a bunch of colleges; that reflects poorly on any argument that he’s mature and intelligent for his age, as does his predilection for profanity. Either the Leftwing activists he’s sided with are handing him scripts, or he’s plagiarizing from Obama speeches.

Before we move on I’ll add a sidebar here- remember how the Left mocked 2nd Amendment advocates (including this NYMag piece that did not date very well) for saying that once they ban guns they’ll go after our knives? How the Left defended knife usage, even noting in defense of knives that people won’t use them in lieu of guns? The mayor of London and other sophisticated Lefties obviously didn’t get the Left’s memo that this was ludicrous and that the slippery-slope argument was an unconvincing fallacy. Or the Left was lying. And remember- America should be more like Europe according to liberals. The same liberals who are caught with loaded handguns which are missing the serial numbers.

To The Matter At Hand – What’s With This Corporate Love Fest?

I have a simple question. Liberals claim to be the anticorporate (to the point that they object when corporations pay bonuses), antimillionaire, anti-Wall Street team, right? Then why is it that every time some spoiled brat SJW takes issue with a conservative outlet or group, corporations (who advertise on equivalent or worse liberal programming) bolt from them like cockroaches when the lights are turned on, but then whenever a liberal is exposed the corporations stand in solidarity like cornered wounded animals? Remember how last year’s great Maddow and Cooper boycott ended their careers like the left’s attack on Bill O’Reilly? Of course not, and there’s a reason that didn’t happen. Hell, why is it that when a conservative host lightly insults a liberal activist who himself has been calling everyone who disagrees with him a murderer, the person smearing his opponents as killers is the one that corporations side with? (Then again, if the corporate heads only paid attention to the liberal media as it fawned over its new heroes, they might not know how insulting the Parkland brats have been.)

It makes no sense to me. Why would corporations flee from or attack the very people who supposedly support them, but then rally around their alleged enemies? It can’t be because public opinion is against conservatives, everything from polls to elections shows quite the opposite and also show that some of the causes that liberal groups circle the wagons around are very unpopular with the public. It can’t be because corporations are diverse environments loaded with traditionally liberal voters who are just following their consciences, otherwise A: corporations would not exist because the anti-capitalist (unless it’s the Crony variety) Left would have disbanded them lest they be accused of hypocrisy, B: the leadership wouldn’t be a bunch of old white men, and C: the Left’s narrative about corporations being soulless non-entities would be disproved.

I am at a loss here for an explanation, unless it were to somehow turn out that big billionaires benefited from the Left. But that would be strange, given how liberals never lie and always tell us that they’re against such billionaires because they’re jealous of their wealth and because they’re mostly white. Or, as was the case with the liberal love fest/media cause du jour Occupy Wall Street protesters, they are against the corporate overlords because they’re Jews.

We all can acknowledge that you don’t get to be a corporate overlord without some intelligence, yes? Is it smart to encourage your predators in this manner? If the Left were as genuinely anti-corporate as they claimed, why would intelligent businessmen support them? Why would companies surrender to liberal boycotts, whether it’s in dropping anything from a Fox News host to an entire state, yet when there is controversy around a liberal the companies seem immune to all boycott efforts? Bill O’Reilly was fired while Indiana and Georgia backed down as a result of boycotts, whereas liberal hosts still have their jobs and liberal companies still remain liberal.

You Still Haven’t Explained The Love Fest

The answer is simple: while the Left claims to be socialist or even communist, they’re really fascist. Liberal Wikipedia defines fascism as “a form of radical authoritarian nationalism… characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and control of industry and commerce”. Obama’s pen and phone, Antifa, boycotts to advance political agendas and control corporate sponsorships. Sure sounds a lot like the Left is fascist to me. “But what about nationalism,” you ask? One nation- across the globe. The modern fascist Left, while very similar to its 20th-century forebears, only differs in that it switched out the Jews for Whites (but Israel is still hated) and switched nationalism for globalism.

“Fascists believe that liberal democracy is obsolete and they regard the complete mobilization of society under a totalitarian one-party state as necessary to prepare a nation for armed conflict and to respond effectively to economic difficulties” as liberal Wikipedia tells us, and if you’d bother to look at their reactions to Trump, and his victory in particular, you would notice that they can best be summed up as “the only voters who matter are Democrat voters”. How tolerant, from the party that claims to value tolerance, from the party who once told Republicans “you don’t like a particular policy or a particular president, then argue for your position… Go out there and win an election.”

From their reaction to Trump, you get a general idea that they believe democracy is obsolete, and with everything they demand the government have the power to do, you get a distinct impression that they want totalitarianism. Certainly, that part about preparing for economic difficulties comes into play, specifically wealth inequality through the partly-Democrat-caused 2008 crash (as I said before, the Democrats walked into a powder keg and deliberately lit a match because they wanted a big boom) is another crisis that society should be mobilized towards. As for armed conflict? They actually dropped that, at least until they started demanding we start a war with Russia.

“The Fascist regime created a corporatist economic system in 1925 with the creation of the Palazzo Vidioni Pact, in which the Italian employers’ association Confindustria and Fascist trade unions agreed to recognize each other as the sole representatives of Italy’s employers and employees, excluding non-Fascist trade unions”. Name one union in the U.S. that isn’t a Democrat donor. And, a corporatist system sure explains why corporations are so eager to suck up to the Left. They want to be the winners. You see, while the Right is generally good for corporations (or so goes the stereotype for you doubters), it’s good for ALL corporations and small businesses. The Left, on the other hand, has a tendency to pick the winners and losers, with policies that all around crush small businesses.

Fascism’s theory of economic corporatism involved management of sectors of the economy by government or privately controlled organizations (corporations)… Each trade union or employer corporation would theoretically represent its professional concerns, especially by negotiation of labor contracts and the like. It was theorized that this method could result in harmony amongst social classes… However, authors have noted that historically de facto economic corporatism was also used to reduce opposition and reward political loyalty”. Gee,  I wonder which political party has done that?

So as the venerable founder of this blog has pointed out before, whenever a liberal yells “fascist” it’s probably because they’re looking in a mirror.

And that in effect answers my question above. Why do corporations always kowtow to liberals, no matter how immature and spoiled they are? It’s because the Left will grant them favors in the future. Sacrificing dignity for profit, and liberals are encouraging this practice which they otherwise denounce. Hypocrisy.

President Tim Kaine

1200px-Tim_Kaine,_official_113th_Congress_photo_portrait-wikimedia

My approximate reaction when I learned he would not be Vice President is linked here. Image from wikimedia.org

Hillary Clinton, the mainstream media, #NeverTrumpers, Democrats in general (except for some bitter Bernie blokes), foreign leaders with ties to the Clinton Foundation, celebrities, most of our medical and psychological professionals, and the white people in charge of our tech industry were all DESPERATE to get Hillary Clinton into office. Just how desperate? They attacked Trump with what felt like an unprecedented degree of savagery, maybe because of the internet and the Left giving more voice to nutcases or because the Left had to make up for crying wolf so many times already. But that’s not the only measure of desperation. The Left was so dedicated to getting into the White House that they were willing to kill their own candidate.

 

For those who still can’t accept that she lost, it may have been a case of the God you don’t believe in saving your messiah. Remember how she fainted in September 2016? Remember that incessant coughing that plagued her for nearly a year? Remember that book from 2015 in which from alleged anonymous sources (the same unimpeachable ones the Left is enamored with when it comes to their anti-Trump narrative) we learn that Hillary herself may have been worried about her health? Remember how as far back as 2012 she fainted and landed in a way that gave her a concussion? Nope, of course, you don’t. Your candidate was fit and virile. Why, when she collapsed and was tossed into her car “like she was a side of beef”, that was immediately followed by her doing a rolling flip out the other side like she was Willy Wonka! Or so the media and Democrats tell us in their hard-hitting interviews and insightful commentary (and you’re also sexist according to Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D) -and presumably MSNBC- if you question Hillary’s health).

However, we have seen several instances post-election of failing health, most recently in India when she fractured her wrist by slipping in the bath tub and at another point had to be carried down stairs after slipping twice (you might recall this as the trip where she again said half the country were backwards racists, and those white women would have voted for her if the men in their lives had not violated a bunch of laws by forcing them to vote for Trump (but I guess if the Democrats in government won’t enforce the law and handle all the sexual abuse that Planned Parenthood covers for then women can’t expect much help from their Leftist heroes when it comes to voting either). How Presidential. If this is how her health is after a hundred day vacation followed by light duty, what would have happened if she were President? Would she be the first handicapped woman President? I doubt it; I can’t picture her with one of those cigarette holders unless she also started squawking, master of fowl play that she is.

Freedom Is Slavery. image of the new face of feminism is from getreligion.com

To the feminists out there, look at the silver lining, we might have the first woman CIA Director thanks to Trump, and we have the first woman to successfully run a Presidential campaign thanks to Trump. Oh wait, they’re Republicans. That means everything they do hurts women somehow, no matter how many glass ceilings they shatter. That’s why Democrats are destroying Trump’s nominee for first female CIA Director when previously they told us just to vote for their candidate because the candidate had a uterus. That’s why it was not sexist for Democrats to vote against both the first female President (Hillary) and first female Vice-President (Sarah Palin) in 2008, instead electing Obama and his eventual boys club that did not pay women equally. Obama and his male chums were Democrats though so that trumped any Republican history-making, and Obama is black which puts him higher in the victim hierarchy so that trumped Hillary and led to a victory for progressives. Just like how accepting Islam and encouraging women to wear hijab as a show of support for Islam’s oppressive treatment of women is also progress. In fact, a current feminist is just such a person.

 

So what would have happened had President Hillary answered the phone at 3am by saying “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”? Because everyone knows that Bubba would be too busy with the interns to be around when his wife was in trouble. Well, we’d end up with President Tim Kaine.

Who Is Tim Kaine?

wcw-oz

This WCW character is Tim Kaine’s wrestling equivalent. A (at the time) middle of the road player who was given a stunning debut and a strong push for unfathomable reasons, because I can’t believe anyone seriously thought the public would accept it (with Oz because you’re watching a character from a children’s movie wrestle, with the Dems it’s because they thought Hillary and Kaine would appeal to the Bernie children. It’s all about the kids). Image from WWE.com

A back-bencher. Those of you in the know are aware that Tim Kaine’s nomination was controversial, at least to the progressives who now seem to dominate the party. But how did this guy get the job?

It’s A Process

Obama asked Tim Kaine to step down as DNC chair and run for Senate in Virginia after he picked Kaine to become DNC chair in the first place just two years prior, while Obama appointed the much more shady and corrupt Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as DNC chair. Schultz was one of Clinton’s national campaign co-chairs in 2008. Two peas in a pod. Obama allegedly made a deal to support Hillary Clinton in the 2016 race, which he ended up doing before she had won the nomination, in fact, he pretty much endorsed her the moment she said she was running. And we all know how Obama-appointed-Clinton-crony Wasserman-Schultz rigged the DNC primary (tangential, but three months after the court ruling that the DNC rigged the primary and was well within its rights to, the Washington Post said the primary was not rigged).

Y’know, this really makes Obama sound like a political mastermind, rewarding his buddy Tim Kaine for supporting him (Kaine was on Obama’s list of VP possibilities, so maybe the DNC chairmanship was also to make up for not following through on that), while also setting the DNC up for Clinton. Well, it was his campaign that introduced the Democrats to Fusion GPS, who would go on to conjure a bogus dossier that was used to illegally get warrants for spying on Hillary’s (and Obama’s) political opponents, so maybe there’s something to that notion.

Hearsay

Anyway, this background is all well and good, but how does it lead to Tim Kaine being VP,

obama_stern-face

Under Obama’s leadership, the Democrat Republican Party flourished, though at least he managed to “fix” the DNC. Image from evil.news

you ask? Supposedly, Obama made the deal to endorse Hillary for 2016 in exchange for her not trying to run against Obama in 2012 (a possibility that was apparently a source of buzz in DC in 2010), so Obama wanted Hillary crony Schultz as DNC chair, thus he told Kaine to accept a temporary grade reduction to Senator, in exchange for the promise of being Vice President five years later (for those questioning the veracity of the Ed Klein book cited, keep in mind that he was absolutely correct about the Clintons’ intention to takeover the DNC, and as seen in the above health section Klein seems to have been on-point about the fainting spells). That does explain why minority candidates and female candidates and female minority candidates were passed over by the most diverse political party in favor of a low-ranking rich old white man.. Explains why the Democrats trotted out tired old warhorse Hillary Clinton for one last roundup when she couldn’t even beat an amateur first-term Senator in 2008 (and later an amateur first-time politician in 2016). Explains why a moderate was picked as VP in a time when the party was trying to bring in the Bernie crowd. Explains why Hillary, with an enemies list rivaling Nixon’s, picked a guy that in 2008 endorsed her opponent.

Either that or Hillary just wanted someone who’d be absolutely useless and do only as he was told. Or the party elders, as with Obama, thought that they needed to attach a rich white dude to their candidate to reassure the other racists and sexists in the party that everything was under control. Who knows. But all of this makes way more sense than the official idea that somehow Hillary forgot her animosity, an idea which she just disproved in March 2018 with her idea that half of America is still a basket of deplorables because they did not vote for her.

Snopes tried to debunk this rumor about Kaine, but A: they only went after a story alleging that Hillary arranged it all rather than Obama and B: their tenet that other candidates than Wasserman-Schultz were being considered is debatable given that Democrats have lied about candidate considerations before- the press, the Left (Snopes is totally on the Left), and Hillary herself kept saying she was debating a wide variety of VP’s well into 2016, when in fact she already settled on Kaine by July of 2015. And before the official announcement, Obama said he’d want Kaine to have the job. Certainly, I have more circumstantial evidence here for this than what Mueller’s dug up.

And yes, liberals are more than capable of these levels of cronyism. If rigging the primary so that a big lie of competition is perpetrated upon the public, just like with Hillary’s big lie that there was competition in the VP process, doesn’t convince you then look at this example I wanted to shoehorn in here because I saw it while typing this: in California, liberals are mad that Trump’s tax plan makes their rich elite pay more in taxes, so they’re setting up a loophole. You know, the same liberals who say we need to raise taxes on the rich, doing this in the most liberal, progressive, leftist state. Just how trustworthy are these people?

Alternate Facts

In keeping with every other thought piece I suppose it is expected that I speculate as to what a Tim Kaine Presidency would look like. That would be quite impossible. You see, the standards I have available to compare this to are absolutely not the standards of the Left today. Even before Trump was elected, the Left was radically different than it was when Kaine was Governor of Virginia. Case in point: the issue of mass shootings. After the Virginia Tech shooting, Governor Kaine created a commission to investigate the incident. Their findings were quite reasonable. It was not mainstream to say “ban all guns” or “ban all guns of a type not related to the attack”. The mainstream media did not call the NRA murderers. Instead, experts found that there were mental health reforms needed, and Kaine signed an executive order making it difficult for people involuntarily put in an asylum to get guns. Compare this to the legislation the Democrats wanted in 2016 in the wake of a shooting- ban people for no reason and without warning from buying guns, in a way that would be next to impossible to overturn. Legislation which Kaine supported. (Then again, Democrats are now supporting the 2nd Amendment thanks to Trump, in an “overthrow the government because we’re spoiled brats that lost” kind of way. Republicans complained all the time about lawless Democrat administrations, like what Tim Kaine would preside over, but once the Secret Service was done investigating them they’d have been thrown into a coffin of snakes if they said anything that could even be remotely interpreted as calling for the assassination of a Democrat.)

I don’t mean to pick on Kaine alone, the ENTIRE Left shifted once Obama won. Even Obama himself. When Hillary presented the idea for what became Obamacare’s individual mandate in 2008, Obama himself came out against it and said that it would never work. Yet this is exactly what he and the Democrats did when they had both houses of Congress and the Presidency, to the exclusion of other issues which only became important to them after they were out of power.

So What Hellscape Did We Dodge?

I imagine that Hillary would have lasted long enough to make good on her threats to shoot down Russian jets in a no-fly zone illegally established over Syria by the U.S. because Hillary likes stabbing her friends in the back or felt slighted because she thinks Putin tried to help Trump or whatever reason floated into her head, which in turn would’ve started World War III. Come to think of it, maybe THIS explains why the Left went with its “Russia committed an act of war during the elections” narrative. Hillary was already trying to push the button anyway. The Left’s dire need to start World War III was there before the collusion narrative, which became their way of both perpetuating their lust for nuclear devastation while soothing the wounds from their 2016 loss. And if Hillary went ahead with her private little war and then collapsed for the last time or coughed herself into unconsciousness because the stresses of Presidency that turn healthy young men gray overwhelmed her already failing septuagenarian health, then we’d be left with Tim Kaine trying to either fight a nuclear war or rebuild after it. The same Tim Kaine who may have merely been handed the DNC Chairmanship and Vice Presidency as a payoff, rather than a merit-based achievement. And I don’t know if his statements were made because of the Left’s post-election descent into unmedicated madness, but maybe a Kaine rebuilding/war effort would reflect his recent statements that Democrats have to fight Republicans in the streets and that whites “have to put [themselves] in a place where we are the minority” (to be fair- Democrat policies don’t really aim for the extermination of a group, but rather its subjugation, hence Jim Crow rather than open genocide, and hence their current activities against white men at the behest of feminism, however, Kaine might court whites in the wake of Armageddon since they’d be weak enough for the totalitarians to take charge). Unless he thought “ooooo, pretty” at the sight of a mushroom cloud and wandered too close to it, in which case either Nancy Pelosi (best known for probably violating some House rule of conduct by crossing the floor and interrupting a speaker because her elitist and vindictive ego was slighted) or Paul Ryan (best known for somehow reminding me of David Hedison) would’ve been left in charge of rebuilding the country.

 

Well… as I’ve said before, at least this would mean those “They Were 11” twits would never exist! Please at least grant me that much consolation!

Better-Than-Worst-Case Scenario

Assuming World War III was somehow avoided and Kaine still became President after Hillary did her show-stopping William Henry Harrison impression, what would Kaine in office be like? Imagine Obama, but inept at being willfully incompetent (I’m pretty sure he had an agenda behind the stuff he did to damage the country- in the words of vindicated Sen. McCarthy: “If liberals were merely stupid, the laws of probability would dictate that at least some of their decisions would serve America’s interest.”). He’d just be a lukewarm filler, using his pen and paper to get liberal policies enacted while being totally unable to handle Congress, if it remained dominated by Republicans. If Democrats took over then Kaine would just sign off on whatever crossed his desk. You would not have much in the way of inspiration. He’d sort of be like Gerald Ford, not in policy (as said he’d be like Obama in that area) but in the sense that you’d forget he was there or ever President. To Hillary’s credit, at least her scandals and her spoiledbratentitled attitude (which Snopes couldn’t debunk, so it cast shade on the claims instead) would serve to remind people she existed, while Kaine has none of that. Personally, I didn’t even know he was governor of Virginia until he was Hillary’s VP nominee, and I don’t think it ever registered that he was a Senator until sometime during the 2016 election cycle, although when I look back I can recall voting against him, but not much else. I’ve been a resident of Virginia all my life, by the way.

The moral here: we can forget about Kaine, and would forget about him even if he were President  (sans WWIII).
