PORN: POLITICS & PROFITS

p-medicare

Examples of using “public health” to control individual behavior and generate political capital…

Alcohol can be addictive and lead to severe and adverse health effects, but it is still legal, highly regulated, and a source of revenue for the political machine and special interest lawyers. As we saw during prohibition, banning alcohol only gave rise to new forms of profitable criminal behavior, some of which funded expansions in the justice system and the incomes of special interest lawyers.

Tobacco products are known to be addictive and lead to severe and adverse health effects, but are still legal, highly regulated, and a source of revenue for the political machine and special interest lawyers. Another big payday for special interest lawyers.

Yet, we still find legislators attempting to impose their morality and political ideology using “public health” as the mechanism to accomplish their political goals.

Recent attempts to make mandatory gun control a “public health issue” to disarm law-abiding citizens appears to be a component of the Democrat platform. Even though those who commit heinous acts, the criminals, crazies, and terrorists do not respect nor follow any laws or prohibitions. This in spite of more people being injured by automobiles and power tools.

Now, we see a push to make pornography a public health crisis…

Everything in the political world demands a crisis to stampede citizens into giving legislators unconstitutional and unnecessary power to promote their own positions and political profits.

Fifteen states: Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Virginia have all declared pornography to be a public health issue. A sixteenth state, Texas, is pending.

All based on model legislation from the National Center on Sexual Exploitation which was formerly and legally known as Morality in Media – a religion-based anti-pornography group which attempts to confuse and conflate cause and effect to promote its moral agenda. Like much of the social science used to bolster moral or political claims, the research methodology is questionable and often cannot be replicated.

Of course, the organization is progressive and bemoans an increase in violence against women and children and the hyper-sexualization of children. As to the violence issue, one must concede that alcohol, drugs, and mental problems appear to play a far more significant role than pornography. And, laughably, you will never see the organization going after the alphabet people (LGBTQIA+) community for pushing sex education, especially homosexuality and what were the formerly aberrant acts feted in specialized porn, in the lower K-12 grades. In spite of media campaigns, AIDS still appears to be a gay disease which is spread by unprotected promiscuous behavior.

Pornography is not a legal term…

Pornography per se cannot be described nor defined in the legal sense. Something acknowledged by Supreme Court Justice Stewart when he noted, “I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description ["hard-core pornography"], and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that.

Bottom line …

Like gun control, you do not punish the law-abiding citizens to deal with a relatively few abusers. Perhaps one should consider actually imposing the criminal sentences prescribed by law rather than allowing miscreants who are real dangers to the community to plea bargain the charges or the powerful and wealthy to escape them. So while the progressives are releasing criminals, especially druggies, into your community, consider what a ban on pornography might produce.

And, like most vices, pornography is a matter of personal preference and individual morality. To subvert the United States Constitution, especially its First Amendment, to promote a particular moral or religious viewpoint is both unconstitutional and dangerous.

Why does this matter? Just as the progressive socialist Democrats want to control the economies of nations by controlling the exploration, production, storage, transmission, and usage of energy under the guise of “global climate change,” we find that the very same people are attempting to control individual behavior under the guise of “public health.” Thus Obamacare was to be the vehicle that allowed the progressives to outlaw or control anything not to their liking.

While I am not taking a position on the billion-dollar pornography industry, it is time to look behind legislation to see which special interests are trying to subvert the Constitution and impose their morality as a fact of law. Considering the progressive socialist Democrat’s outcry over something as simple and right as the Ten Commandments, one might note the hypocrisy that abounds in the Democrat Party.

We are so screwed when the religious crazies, legislators, and media control the narrative.

SECOND DEMOCRAT DEBATE -- JULY 30 & 31

The questions the progressive socialist Democrats do not want to answer …

2nd-debate-dem

And the most important question of all…

DEMO-HEALTH-CARE

Bottom line…

If they are unwilling or refuse to answer these and similar questions, they will be telling you that voting for the Democrat Party will significantly and severely impact your life, the lives of your children, your community, and your nation. And, we haven’t even begun to ask questions about the military and foreign affairs. Democrat president Jimmy Carter gave us Islamo-fascism.  Democrat president gave us a nuclear North Korea. Democrat President Barack Obama has given us an Iran with ballistic missiles and an enhanced nuclear capability. Can you even begin to imagine what another Democrat president could do to the safety, security, and sovereignty of America?

If you are an honest observer, you will see the battle between the so-called "moderate" Democrats who fear for their positions and are afraid to explain themselves lest ordinary Americans run the other way, and the radical progressives who want to tear the entire system down in a transformative revolution.

We are so screwed.

THE "FRAUD SQUAD" -- AMERICA'S NEWEST REALITY SHOW

Just saying …

President Trump is perfectly positioned to deal with the self-named “Squad,” a cadre of progressive crazies comprised of Representatives Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).

squad

In reality, nothing more than a shrill vocal cadre of disloyal, ungrateful, un-American miscreants that are using their race, religion, and gender to pursue a program of radical transformation that will disparage, damage, and ultimately destroy traditional American economic, political, and social values if executed.

All based on failed un-American socialist and communist theories that brought death and misery to millions that were subjugated by totalitarian states. And all amplified by an uncritical toxic progressive media to capture a larger share of falling ratings.

There is little or no doubt in my mind that Trump knows what he is doing, having created his own mini-squad of one in Omarosa Onee Manigault Newman who participated on Trump’s NBC reality show The Apprentice (2004).

OMAROSSA

Omarosa came to the Apprentice as a somewhat telegenic, articulate, and well-educated participant with a record of previous job failures.

In the 1990s, Newman worked in the office of Vice President Al Gore during the Clinton administration. She later said the job had been "a very difficult environment, because they don't believe in training. They just kind of throw you in the fire." Gore's former office administrator, Mary Margaret Overbey, has said Omarosa "was the worst hire we ever made." She was later transferred to the Commerce Department via the White House personnel office. Cheryl Shavers, who then served as the Commerce Department's Undersecretary for Technology Administration, said that Omarosa was "unqualified and disruptive," adding, "I had her removed.” <Source>

And, in spite of her treacherous character and imprudent behavior, added a layer of audience appeal with her crazy-making antics. Especially her feud with fellow-participant Piers Morgan, who went on to win the “contest.” 

Voicing what many were thinking…

Trump’s only error was Tweeting in the plural, as only Omar comes from Somalia. A minor point amplified by the progressive media’s echo chamber and furthered by Democrat talking points used by their so-called talking heads.

t-tweet

How much more accurate it would have been if he offered the four un-American malcontents a first-class ticket to the socialist paradise of their choice, including options to live in China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, or a similar peoples’ democratic republic before they spout their socialist/communist (now, functionally one in the same) propaganda and prescriptions for America? Let us see how they would fare against a foreign government when they point out human rights violations and demand change.

Bottom line…

Hiring and firing Omarosa from the Apprentice, and from the White House, points to the peculiar nature of Donald Trump’s behavior in that he is willing to embrace crazy-makers and non-mainstream individuals if it furthers his agenda – if only to provide a foil against which he can react. Disavowing or disparaging them when they are of no further use.

One can easily imagine that the four representatives could be characterized, in the most non-politically-correct manner, as the Four Bitches of the American Apocalypse. How else can you describe these four un-American miscreants who want to lead America into rejecting capitalism and embracing fatal socialism/communism?

Call me a racist, bigot, homophobe, Islamophobe, or anything else, but then prove I am wrong about the fifth column that is attempting to destroy America from within on behalf of our enemies, both foreign and domestic. They reject American values, hate law enforcement, and openly tolerate mass slaughter in their neighborhoods – while pointing the finger at law-abiding citizens and accusing them of being anti-social.

All that seems to be left (pun intended), is for Omarosa to declare herself to be the latest candidate for the Democrat nomination for the Presidency. A move that would be welcomed with open arms by NBC, MSNBC, and President Trump. Imagine the ratings and reactions.

We are so screwed when ideas no longer matter, and it is all about attracting an audience that benefits the mainstream media.

5G TECHNOLOGY -- A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO AMERICA

huawei-5g

In the process of attempting to understand the trade dynamics of China's Huawei Technologies, I stumbled across a fundamental truth that is shocking in its scope and impact on our freedoms…

That is, with 4G, fourth-generation technology, individuals were able to somewhat opt-out of coercively providing mobile device information to third-parties, be they the hardware, operating system software,  application developers, or governmental agencies. With the projected capacity, speed, and omnipresence of 5G, fifth-generation technology, it will be almost impossible for an individual to opt-out of an electronic network that can be used to surveil their entire existence, including what they are doing in the home -- a place where there is a legal assumption of privacy.

It is no longer about “improving the customer experience,” but collecting, massaging, targeting, and selling your data…

Essentially, those third-party "terms of use' agreements will force individuals to surrender any rights to privacy and the ownership of generated data -- and make them vulnerable to bad actors, be they malevolent hackers or a totalitarian state.

With 5G, it is no longer a case of surrendering freedom and security for convenience; it is a case of being forced to engage with the system as more and more devices are connected to the internet.

As we have seen, the government has at its disposal "secret courts" where the proceedings are classified, and exculpatory evidence relies on the integrity of the agencies and individuals appearing before the court. Unfortunately, we have seen that the entire system can be easily corrupted with no individual or agency held responsible for wrongdoing or evil intent.

Our privacy laws, written by special interests and promoted by corrupt, pay-for-play legislators, are now and will be defective by design -- full of loopholes, exceptions, and waivers.

It gets worse…

Perhaps you should consider the implications of millimeter wave technology in 5G systems. Especially the type of millimeter-wave scans that see-through clothing and walls. Or cell densification that improves the granularity of system tracking abilities. Or the health effects of being awash in an electric atmosphere of radio frequencies.

If this does not scare you, consider two other factors. One, electronic games to impart carefully targeted propaganda and to divert children and others from physical and emotional development so that you weaken the moral fiber, character, and physical ability to resist tyrannical demands. Two, becoming so reliant on the information, correct or not, on the internet, that the day the cloud dissipates, you are left with a mass of functional illiterates. Look at today's younger generation who can barely function without computer-assistance.

Which brings us back to Huawei...

Any company that controls the build-out, operation, and use of a significant 5th generation platform can exert tremendous influence on the geopolitics of the world, the internal dynamics of a nation, and can direct the behavior of individuals into a cohesive and dangerous collective force.  There is little or no doubt in my mind that the Chinese Army has ordered Chinese companies to incorporate back doors into their electronic devices and enable some of those devices to spy on its enemies, either for military or commercial gain. Already the Chinese are implementing a surveillance system to calculate a “social credit score” based on their citizen’s observed behavior. A score that can be used to limit educational, employment, and housing resources as a form of reward/punishment system. A scoring algorithm that was built in Silicon Valley and is used to target you for goods and services based on your past behavior.

Imagine such a system in the United States to incentivize conforming behavior, including the support of certain political parties and individuals on social media and in everyday conversations?  It is known that Russian bots created and enhanced several demonstrations using social media platforms, so we know these techniques are valid and can be used to influence behaviors.

Bottom line…

So, the single most crucial question you need to ask: do you want that level of power in the hands of the Communist Chinese or the hands of an American mercenary corporation?

And before you answer that question, consider that the Silicon Valley progressives who shout about violations of human rights are the same companies behind the new technology and collecting and selling our data. Even worse, they are infiltrated by government agents, both foreign and domestic, and beholden to the politicians for multi-billion-dollar contracts and the regulatory environment under which they operate.

Unless stronger privacy legislation is passed, and both individuals, as well as corporations, are held responsible for their actions, we are totally and thoroughly screwed.

ILHAN OMAR: IS THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND THE FBI COMPLICIT IN COVERING UP CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES?

omar

There is no doubt that Ilhan Omar was duly elected to Congress, seated, and appointed by Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, to serve on the House Budget Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee, where she also serves on the Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations and the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. In addition, Omar also serves on the House Education and Labor Committee, where she is a member of the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Development and the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections.

However in various publications, some with voluminous documentation, it has been alleged that there is enough “probable cause” –  certainly more than existed with the Donald Trump-Russia collusion allegations – to open an FBI investigation into eight instances of perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, up to eight years of state and federal tax fraud, two years of federal student loan fraud, and even bigamy." Including the fact that Omar may not even be her true family name.

For those wanting a rather comprehensive summary of the allegations along with documentary evidence, you may wish to read the following articles which certainly have more verifiable substance than the Democrat’s bogus Steele dossier.

It is her service on the House Foreign Affairs Committee that is most troubling…

From her own words, Omar, if that is her name, appears to be anti-America, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and has troubling connections with terrorists. So does she have a security clearance and does she get classified intelligence briefings that may be useful to our enemies?

Rules of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, 116th Congress
(Adopted January 29, 2019)

20. Access to Classified Information

(a) Authorized Persons. In accordance with the stipulations of the Rules of the House of Representatives, all Members of the House who have executed the oath required by clause 13 of rule XXIII of the House of Representatives shall be authorized to have access to classified information within the possession of the Committee.

The decision on whether a given staff member has a need to know will be made on the following basis:

(1) In the case of the full Committee majority staff, by the Chairman, acting through the Staff Director;

(2) In the case of the full Committee minority staff, by the Ranking Minority Member of the Committee, acting through the Minority Staff Director;

(3) In the case of subcommittee majority staff, by the chairman of the subcommittee;

(4) In the case of the subcommittee minority staff, by the Ranking Minority Member of the subcommittee.

No other individuals shall be considered authorized persons, unless so designated by the Chairman of the full Committee.

(b) Designated Persons. Each Committee Member is permitted to designate one member of his or her staff as having the right of access to information classified Confidential. Such designated persons must have the proper security clearance, have executed the oath required by clause 13 of rule XXIII of the House of Representatives, and have a need to know as determined by his or her principal. Upon request of a Committee Member in specific instances, a designated person also shall be permitted access to information classified Top Secret which has been furnished to the Committee pursuant to section 36 of the Arms Export Control Act, as amended. Upon the written request of a Committee Member and with the approval of the Chairman in specific instances, a designated person may be permitted access to other classified materials. Designation of a staff person shall be by letter from the Committee Member to the Chairman.

(c) Location. Classified information will be stored in secure safes in the Office of the Security Officer and in the Office of the Minority Staff Director. All materials classified Top Secret or higher must be stored in a Secure Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF).

(d) Handling. Materials classified Confidential or Secret may be taken from Committee offices to other Committee offices and hearing rooms by Members of the Committee and authorized Committee staff in connection with hearings and briefings of the Committee or its subcommittees for which such information is deemed to be essential. Removal of such information from the Committee offices shall be only with the permission of the Chairman under procedures designed to ensure the safe handling and storage of such information at all times. Except as provided in this paragraph, Top Secret materials may not be taken from approved storage areas for any purpose, except that such materials may be taken to hearings and other meetings that are being conducted at the Top Secret level when necessary. Materials classified Top Secret may otherwise be used under conditions approved by the Chairman after consultation with the Ranking Minority Member.

(1) Authorized persons will be permitted access to classified documents after inquiring of the Staff Director or an assigned staff member. Access to the SCIF will be afforded during regular Committee hours.

(2) Authorized persons will be required to identify themselves, to identify the documents or information they wish to view, and to sign the Classified Materials Log, which is kept with the classified information.

(3) The assigned staff member will be responsible for maintaining a log which identifies: (1) authorized persons seeking access, (2) the classified information requested, and (3) the time of arrival and departure of such persons. The assigned staff member will also assure that the classified materials are returned to the proper location.

(g) Divulgence. Classified information provided to the Committee by the Executive Branch shall be handled in accordance with the procedures that apply within the Executive Branch for the protection of such information. Any classified information to which access has been gained through the Committee may not be divulged to any unauthorized person. Classified material shall not be photocopied or otherwise reproduced. In no event shall classified information be discussed in a non-secure environment. Apparent violations of this rule should be reported as promptly as possible to the Chairman for appropriate action.

(h) Other Regulations.

Members of the Committee will be given notice of any such regulations and procedures promptly. They may be modified or waived in any or all particulars by a majority vote of the full Committee.

Bottom line …

When Omar is questioned, she either implies or states that the questioner must be racist, bigoted, or Islamophobic. A dodge that seems to have worked over the years for the members of the Black Caucus. But, now it is time to recognize that it is a serious matter when our enemies may have direct access to a Member of Congress.

How is it that no GOP representative has stood up and requested an FBI investigation of Omar? How is it that no complaint about conduct unbecoming a Representative has been filed with the House Ethics Committee? And, where are the media watchdogs who should be demanding answers?

Just another instance of the progressive socialist Democrats being willing to sacrifice the safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States to pursue a toxic totalitarian agenda rooted in socialism/communism on behalf of a fifth column that seeks to destroy America from within.

We are majorly screwed.

JOY BEHAR: THE PERSONIFICATION OF PARTISAN POLITICS

Joy Behar – putting the rant into intolerant…

joy-behar

Joy Behar, an unfunny, shrill, and a rather stupid comedian who co-hosts ABC’s woman’s daytime talk show “The View,” is representative of the intolerant progressive socialist democrats.

Here is someone who makes their living from words, concepts, and performance art, yet she wants to muzzle the President of the United States for his Tweets.

Absolutely insane – unless you are a little-talent, hack that needs to generate a level of controversy that makes a 76-year-old appear relevant to a television audience.

Joy Behar on Trump: 'Why can't he be brought up on charges of hate speech?'

“The View” co-host Joy Behar questioned Thursday why President Trump had yet to face any legal consequences for “hate speech” directed at Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar.

“Why can’t he be brought up on charges of hate speech?” Ms. Behar asked on the show. “Why can’t he be sued by the ACLU for hate speech? I don’t get it. How does he get away with this?”

“Hate speech is tricky,” co-host and former federal prosecutor Sunny Hostin said before cutting to a clip of Mr. Trump’s rally in North Carolina on Wednesday night.

Ms. Behar’s confusion came during a segment about the “send her back” chant that erupted at Mr. Trump’s rally in reference to Ms. Omar, who is originally from Somalia. While he didn’t rebuke the chant in the moment, the president later said he was “not happy” about it.

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said Mr. Trump was inciting “violence” against Ms. Omar. <Source>

The issue at hand was President Trump’s suggestion that if the hate-filled openly anti-Semitic, anti-America, anti-White socialist/communist didn’t like America that much and believed it was filled by racists, perhaps she should return to the lawless, failed state of Somalia where women, gays, and others are oppressed as a matter of custom, practice, and Sharia law.

trump-tweets

“If you’re not happy here, then you can leave,” Trump said, during an event on the South Lawn of the White House, ostensibly about American-made products. “As far as I’m concerned, if you hate our country, if you’re not happy here, you can leave.”

I totally agree!!!

The progressive Democrats even eat their own…

eto

Kamala Harris’s proves she is unfit for the Presidency as she responds to Trump’s tweet …

kh-response

Vile? No, it represents the thoughts of many Americans who wish that the agitators and activists who seem to represent our enemies be given a free ticket to the hell-hole they left or the socialist-communist paradise they embrace. Wonderful destination spots like China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and elsewhere where Omar’s crap gets her a jail cell not a place in the government nor a place before the media.

There is nothing more vile than anti-Semitism which seems to be the official policy of the progressive socialist Democrats.

Cowardly? Only in the minds of the progressive socialist Democrats and their useful idiots in the media.

Xenophobic? Americans do not hate the foreign, strange, or unfamiliar. We ask the aliens enter the United States in a legal, orderly manner, and if they wish to become Americans, they assimilate into our culture.

Racist? This word has zero impact today – unless you are an elected official, corporate executive, or someone pilloried by the media. Omar is a racist as are the rest of the so-called “Squad.”  Being a domestic- or foreign-born “woman of color” does not give you a pass to spew your brand of hatred or openly trash talk your country without realizing that other people have the right to criticize and condemn your actions.

Defiles the Office of the Presidency – you mean like diddling an intern with a cigar in the Oval Office or using your position to perfect your sexual predatory practices>

What makes Trump so dangerous to the progressive socialist Democrats is that he has bypassed the traditional norms and forced the media to carry his message – dominating the news cycle with his message. From all appearances, President Trump does not regard negative coverage as being good or bad, simply a vehicle to get his message out and resonate with the American people who see our nation at increasing risk from Democrats gone wild.

Bottom line…

Damn right, Skippy. Bugger off into the real world of pain, suffering, and hatred that is the socialist-communist dream.

Where is the investigation into the allegations that Omar married her brother to commit immigration fraud, perjured herself on her tax returns, and may be guilty of bigamy? Some may be grounds for deportation or at least "probable cause to investigate Omar for eight instances of perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, up to eight years of state and federal tax fraud, two years of federal student loan fraud, and even bigamy."

As for President Trump, keep on saying what others are thinking.

We are so screwed.

BIG BROTHER'S LITTLE COUSINS

ring-eye

Anybody that went to school before condoms were applied to cucumbers in class should remember George Orwell’s iconic dystopian novel “1984” featuring the fictional character of “Big Brother,” a literary representation for the mass surveillance of individuals by a decidedly abusive or tyrannical government.

Beyond the surveillance activities of government intelligence and law enforcement agencies, we are now finding out that surveillance activities which are prohibited by law are being outsourced to corporations which have little supervision or oversight and which are thoroughly infiltrated by former government agents as well as representatives of our enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Starting with old-fashioned paper-based credit bureaus, certain institutions, ostensibly under the watchful eye of the government, began collecting data about individuals ostensibly to remove the friction of commerce when extending credit to both individuals and corporations. The old-fashioned credit bureaus have gone far beyond their original function and morphed into secretive collectors of published and non-published personal information, much of which has been synthetically derived from matching data elements to individuals using keys such as names, addresses, locations, date of birth, and more specific keys such as Social Security numbers, drivers’ and professional license numbers.

Then came a unique master key, the GUID – Globally Unique IDentifier -- which is generated by most digital electronic devices and embedded in most computer text, audio, video files. In some cases, printed in near-invisible coding on printed matter by today’s modern printers. In a number of cases, the GUID is linked to a specific individual by registration (think warranties) or by scanning the individual’s files – ostensibly to provide a “better customer experience” or targeted advertising in return for “free” services.

And now we are faced with the “internet of things.” Devices that can surreptitiously surveil your activities and transmit the data over hidden electronic pathways to third-parties, known and unknown.

Consider General Motor’s OnStar system which was sold as a safety and convenience feature. Monitoring your car’s mechanical status and performance, providing driving directions, allowing you to communicate via mobile phone, aiding in stolen car location, door unlocking, and providing emergency notifications in case of breakdowns or crashes. With an embedded microphone and speaker (which can be used as a microphone), we were assured that OnStar could not be used to listen to your private conversations.

Until a drug dealer in Nevada went to court and the government was forced to admit they used OnStar to listen to conversations and track locations – under a secret warrant.

So what is different about today …

You may be contacted as a potential witness, linked to a crime by your electronic device in close proximity to a crime.

Your device may be commandeered to spy on other third parties. Consider the latest use of doorbell cams and home surveillance devices being used with the police to track package thieves or provide evidence in civil or criminal matters.

Consider that Ring, a provider of video doorbell devices, is creating a “social network” of devices that may serve as a “neighborhood watch” function – and is willing to provide captured information to the more than 50 police departments which have partnered with Ring. You may not even be aware that your security system is being used without your permission.

Even worse, you may be agreeing to surveillance and the sale of your information to unknown third-parties when you agree to the unilateral terms of the ubiquitous terms of use agreement which protects companies from the consequences of even intentional evil acts by the company, its employees, agents, and affiliates.

And, it may be more than our government watching …

In the news…

Billionaire investor Peter Thiel urged the FBI and CIA to investigate whether Google has been infiltrated by the Chinese during his remarks at the National Conservatism Conference on Sunday.

Thiel, who sits on the board of Facebook, suggested that Google’s decision to work with the Chinese military is “treasonous” and likely occurred because the company’s management has been compromised by Chinese intelligence. He suggested three questions that the authorities might pose to Google executives to expose Beijing’s infiltration.

Number one, how many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated your Manhattan Project for AI (artificial intelligence)?” Thiel asked, according to Axios. “Number two, does Google’s senior management consider itself to have been thoroughly infiltrated by Chinese intelligence?”

“Number three, is it because they consider themselves to be so thoroughly infiltrated that they have engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the US military,” he added. <Source>

Bottom line …

The government no longer has to maintain their own surveillance schemes and databases, as other third-parties will legally do it for them.

Consider that the users of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are voluntarily creating a near real-time dossier of their life – even if it is a somewhat flawed or false portrayal. It will be up to you to prove yourself a liar or deny your “intent” should false information be used to impeach your testimony or imprison you based on your own words. And, of course, your electronic devices are neutral, unimpeachable witnesses to your actions.

HOW DO YOU FEEL?

I keep hearing progressive socialist democrats claim the issues are complicated and that you should be guided by your feelings, even in the face of incontrovertible facts...

UNCLE-SAM-RUSSIAN-ROULETT

Want to talk about YOUR feelings?

How do you feel when elected officials, who represent you,  tell you how much of your salary and savings you must give to support an increasing number of illiterate, impoverished, unskilled, and possibly disease-ridden or criminal individuals who will never assimilate into American life as they keep their language, culture, and allegiance to a foreign country?

How do you feel about sacrificing all of your earned retirement and medical care that currently exists for a system that nobody can define, describe, or implement? Remember the promises of “affordable” care and keeping your doctors and medical facilities? What are your premiums, deductibles, and co-pays now?

How do you feel about a system the siphons off 25% of every government-spent dollar to provide life-long jobs, above-average salaries, and inflated benefits to government employees?

How do you feel about the economy-killing de-growthers who want to reduce your standard of living and economic opportunities in order to weaken our country relative to the rest of the world?

How do you feel about those population control groups who use the promotion of abortion (mainly in minority communities), non-reproductive homosexuality, and anti-vaccine campaigns to achieve their results?

How do you feel about becoming vulnerable to China, Russia, Pakistan, North Korea, and Iran -- and a target for nuclear blackmail for a large percentage of our gross domestic product?

How do you feel when illegal immigrants are treated better than our returning veterans?

How do you feel about creating larger victim pools with no guarantee that criminals, crazies, and terrorists will respect the law or that someone will come to your rescue?

How do you feel about giving away your birthright so disaffected individuals can feel good about themselves?

How do you feel about destroying the future of your children, grandchildren, and succeeding generations?

Bottom line...

Personally, I feel betrayed and pissed off.

In my opinion, voting Democrat is like playing Russian Roulette with a semi-automatic pistol. There is only a glimmer of hope that your life will be saved by a misfire.

We are so screwed.

BANDY LEE: PSYCHOBABBLIST

Trump Derangement Syndromet-covers

If Trump Derangement Syndrome were a real thing, Yale University psychiatrist Bandy Lee would be a prime candidate for a psychiatric evaluation.

Her insistence that President Donald Trump is unfit for office based on a “psychic” pseudo-medical exam that never took place, is evidence enough that Lee is either a publicity-seeking media whore or someone who needs to be professionally evaluated before allowing her to practice her profession.

By Lee’s criteria, most New Yorkers, especially those from the Bronx (including herself) and Queens, appear to exhibit the same characteristics that are said to afflict President Trump.

Like any other group of political activists allied with the Democrat Party, one should be extremely skeptical of their pronouncements and the motives of those involved.

Perhaps the very best you might say of Lee is that she appears to have flushed her career down the drain to join the legion of Wing-Nuts that hate Donald Trump for no other reason that he made a mockery of the Democrat’s socialist platform and highlighted the fact that their candidate, Hillary Clinton, was a corrupt, lying Marxist with the likeability of a used piece of toilet paper.  And that Trump bypassed the traditional Democrat propaganda spewed by a biased mainstream media using social media. Unlike elites George Bush and Mitt Romney, both political cowards who refused to engage their enemies or define the GOP’s position, Trump counterpunched and called out his adversaries like any other American citizen who was attacked for his political position.

Now, Lee and her cohorts are planning a July 23rd “town hall” meeting, ostensibly to present their “armchair analysis” of the president and list all of the reasons why he should be removed from office.

From the Washington Times…

Democrats plan town hall event on Trump's 'deteriorating' mental health

House Democrats say they will provide a platform to a psychiatrist to speak to members and the public on what she calls President Trump’s deteriorating mental state, despite professional guidelines against diagnosing public figures.

Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale School of Medicine psychiatrist who edited a book titled “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President” will attend the town-hall style meeting on Capitol Hill, to which all lawmakers will be invited

“We are planning to do something where she can make a presentation to other members, so that they’ll be aware of what she’s been working on,” Rep. John Yarmuth, Kentucky Democrat and House Budget Committee chairman, told The Hill on Wednesday.

Mr. Yarmuth and Rep. Jamie Raskin, Maryland Democrat, will host Dr. Lee and perhaps other psychiatrists, The Hill reported. <Source>

Bottom line…

Am I the only one to notice that most socialist, communist, and other totalitarian regimes have weaponized psychiatry to eliminate or neutralize their opponents.

If it were truly possible to analyze patients without any personal connection, why hasn’t the profession moved beyond the which-doctor phase (as in which medication should I try next?) to screening out potential mass murderers and other psychotic deviants? I am not saying this facetiously as Lee’s area of expertise is purported to be a “violence prevention,” especially in prisons and in the communities.

We saw this playbook during the Goldwater era and the ploy appeared to work then. Can it work at a time when many view Bandy Lee as just another useful idiot that has been enlisted in the war against freedom, liberty, and the ability of individuals to choose their own destiny? Imposing her politics and morality on the citizenry as if her degrees in medicine ( M.D. from Yale Medical School) and theological studies (MDiv from the Yale School of Divinity) were enough to legitimatize her remote analysis of the President?

We are so screwed.

KAMALA HARRIS: RACISM & STUPIDITY ON DISPLAY

There is little or no doubt in my mind that California Senator Kamala Harris is a racist, viewing everything through the prism of race with the self-interested zeal of a Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton.

KAMALA

Now we find Harris asserting, without any shred of proof proffered, that Russian “bots” interacting with social media was behind the Colin Kaepernick controversy. 

Kamala Harris: Kaepernick backlash was 'not a thing' until Russian bots 'started taking it on'

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said the controversy surrounding the national anthem protests of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was "not a thing" until Russian trolls started fanning the flames on social media.

[OCS: I know it is hard to believe that a significant number of Americans do not live on social media platforms and that the fact of dishonoring your country, flag, or anthem would create a significant backlash among patriotic Americans who realize that their country is exceptional and unique in a world of real danger.

Kaepernick, a football player with minimal talent and few brains, has found a way to turn personal controversy into profits – much like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and even Kamala Harris turn racial animosity into a vehicle that promotes their own agenda.]

During a Friday interview with the radio show "The Breakfast Club," Harris discussed Russian interference in the 2016 election, and said the easiest way for Russian online trolls to sow discord in American politics is to stoke racial animosity.

"They test out a couple of things to see what can get the American public going at each other, pointing fingers at each other," Harris said. "Guess what gains the most heat? Race."

Harris specifically cited the explosive national debate that ignited in August 2016 when Kaepernick first chose not to stand during the national anthem.

"Remember the heat that ended up around the 'bend the knee' and Colin Kaepernick?" Harris asked. "Many smart people have said it actually was not a thing, the Russian bots started taking that on."

[OCS: I wonder if Harris actually pays attention to her briefing books, especially on the subject of the evidence behind the Mueller Report – which could not find concrete evidence of Russian “troll-bots” being used on social media platforms in a significant way.

Look behind the House Intelligence Committee, Chaired by the corrupt Adam Schiff (D-CA), and their report on “Exposing Russia’s Effort to Sow Discord Online: The Internet Research Agency and Advertisements” and you will find little more than unproven prosecutor’s assertions and allegations that have never been tested in a court of law.

Given the fact that most of America does not live on social media and most posts are self-extinguishing over a relatively short timespan, the impact of suggested “bot activity” has likely been overstated for political effect.

In fact, I am still waiting for Adam Schiff’s “compelling evidence” that the President of the United States colluded with Russia.”

<Source>

Bottom line…

Truth-be-told, Kamala Harris is like former President Barack Obama, willing to exploit race for personal gain, and is likely – like Obama – to leave the United States more racially divided than ever before. And, in return for their support, Blacks in America are likely to see the same type of treatment from Harris that they received under the elitist Obama.

We are so screwed.
