REBOOT: THE BEST YEAR-END ACTIONS

As we countdown the hours, looking forward to 2020 …COUNTDOWN

Four suggestions …

(1)  Backup what is important to you. Decide what is important, necessary, and useful; and decide to discard the rest – possibly donating to a reputable charity or simply gifting them to individuals who can use the items. 

(2)  Reboot your life. For those you who do not understand what happens when you re-boot a computer, all of the information stored in volatile memory is lost along with any temporary settings. Likewise, reboot – give up all of those grudges and temporary upsets and concentrate on what is important: your health, your peace of mind, and the maintenance of reciprocal and supportive relationships in your family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and community.

restart-computer

(3)  Forget the concept of “New Year’s Resolutions” in favor of habits. Researchers have told us that habits trump goals. Goals may change as the journey proceeds or your achieve your goal, but habits persist. And, let’s be realistic, we also need to eliminate any of the negative habits we may have developed over the years.

(4)  Question everything objectively. We can no longer rely on governmental or media information without question. Consider for yourself the credibility of the source and who is profiting from the tale being spun.

Bottom line…

Wishing you and yours a healthy, prosperous, and safe new year. And, remember -- this is the year you need to get everyone to vote to save your life, Constitution, and tour. country

DECADE IN REVIEW

If I had to choose a single “thing” to represent the past decade, it would be a book…

George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Novel.” Published in June 1949, it is a dystopian novel depicting life in the future, specifically in the year 1984. While the book deals with authoritarian governments and persistent state surveillance, its central theme is how language can be perverted to obfuscate meaning, alter definitions and understanding, repress individuality and independent thinking, and to be used as a tool to seek power over others.

Some crucial points in the book:

Newspeak and Doublethink

“The novel explicitly shows people learning doublethink and Newspeak due to peer pressure and a desire to "fit in", or gain status within the Party—to be seen as a loyal Party Member. In the novel, for someone to even recognize—let alone mention—any contradiction within the context of the Party line is akin to blasphemy, and could subject that person to disciplinary action and the instant social disapproval of fellow Party Members.”

“The keyword here is blackwhite. Like so many Newspeak words, this word has two mutually contradictory meanings. Applied to an opponent, it means the habit of impudently claiming that black is white, in contradiction of the plain facts. Applied to a Party member, it means a loyal willingness to say that black is white when Party discipline demands this. But it means also the ability to believe that black is white, and more, to know that black is white, and to forget that one has ever believed the contrary. This demands a continuous alteration of the past, made possible by the system of thought which really embraces all the rest, and which is known in Newspeak as doublethink. Doublethink is basically the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them."

"The Ministry of Plenty (Newspeak: Miniplenty)-- rations and controls food, goods, and domestic production; every fiscal quarter, it publishes false claims of having raised the standard of living, when it has, in fact, reduced rations, availability, and production. The Ministry of Truth substantiates the Ministry of Plenty's claims by revising historical records to report numbers supporting the current, 'increased rations.;”

"The Ministry of Truth (Newspeak: Minitrue) controls information: news, entertainment, education, and the arts. [The main character,] Winston Smith works in the Minitrue RecDep (Records Department), 'rectifying' historical records to concord with Big Brother's current pronouncements so that everything the Party says is true."

Can you honestly say that we are not experiencing many of the political realities described in 1984 when you replace the word government with the words “progressive socialist democrats.” The progressives are still working on capturing government an implementing Miniplenty with their proposed healthcare and climate policies. However, the progressives appear to have created their own form of Minitrue and control much of what is done in the news, entertainment, education, and the arts

We have increasingly persistent surveillance with our self-purchased electronic devices, many of which aggregate personal information and transmit it to an unknown server in the internet cloud. We have increasingly personal dossiers, self-created, and uploaded to social media servers.

Awaken from what?

Apparently, to be “woke” is to be mindful of the doublethink and newspeak as promoted by the progressives, or should I say, communists-in-waiting?

Science tells us that our sex is determined by our chromosomes at birth, not by what we believe or wish it to be. We live in an age where white people can self-proclaim to be black; men can self-proclaim as women, and variations on the theme. To deny or disrespect any individual’s beliefs, no matter how outrageous or disruptive, is to be labeled a bigot – or even worse, a ‘phobe as in homophobe, xenophobe, or Islamaphobe. To deny fashionable science or even falsified hypotheses is to be labeled a “denier” and shunned. Coerced into silence by your peers.

If you follow the pronouncements of the progressives, you find tyranny by the minority where being gay is better than being straight, but not as good as being trans or any one of the more exotic flavors of the month. Being white is inferior to being a person of color, and being a vegan in superior to being a meat-loving carnivore. And the ultimate manifestation of wokeness, being a socialist is more “woke” than being a capitalist.

Bottom line…

The past decade is marked by the continued infiltration of communism into our societal institutions and the slow destruction of our societal norms by a fifth column of individuals, both domestic and foreign, which seeks to destroy America from within by using our own laws and tolerance for divergent thought against us.

The key to combatting much of this insane behavior by the progressive socialist democrats is to reject their misuse of language, redefinition of common terms, and their continual revision of our history. A history that shows that their ideology is bankrupt and has lead to the death and suffering of hundreds of millions of people.

Make them prove their positions before ceding political or financial power.

If this progressive socialist democrat nonsense continues, we are well and truly screwed.

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN ON OUR WATCH?

Before our eyes, the Democrat Party has been infiltrated and seized by radical socialists, just a politer name for the more hated, but more descriptive, communist brand. How can this possibly be?

we-see

Communism has been normalized to the point that we no longer see the internal clear and present danger to the existence of our exceptional America.

OVERTON-WINDOW-2

What is accepted as the normal limits of acceptability has now shifted leftward so that the radical far-left communists are within the window of respectability.

Compounding the problem …

Our laws are being used against us. And the most extreme example is the destruction of parental authority in the name of child welfare.

Progressive educators no longer educate, they indoctrinate.

History is no longer taught or is taught using textbooks that minimize the horrors of socialism and communism.

Books are not burned nor banned; they simply disappear from public libraries and school reading lists.

Multiculturalism, political correctness, and moral equivalency muddles or eliminates the true meaning of totalitarianism.

People are so occupied with their electronic devices that they no longer observe their surroundings and minimally participate in real-world activities.

Petty people turn into petty bureaucrats and then into petty tyrants without pushback.

People accept convenience over safety and security; willingly watch their inalienable rights erode in the name of a more civil society.

Much of progressive America has gone insane: disarming law-abiding citizens and releasing criminals from prison – all to balance the numbers to support the myth that anything that happens to a class of individuals must be in proportion to their percentage representation in the general population.

Risk has been transferred from those executives who run major financial institutions and corporations to the public through lobbyist-crafted legislation. Executives have no problem paying record fines while neither admitting nor denying the  allegations – knowing their customers or the public will pick up the tab. The same applies to politicians who exempt themselves from the criminal laws they impose on others, hide behind constitutional rulemaking,  are allowed to retroactively cover wrongdoing when discovered, and have ethics committees which are impotent.

All marinated in a progressive media that has abandoned journalistic ethics in favor of corporate agendas, turning news into commentary and burying or ignoring “objectional stories.” The idea that CNN or MSNBC could rival Pravda, Russia Today, of Al Jazeera in pumping our propaganda and misinformation would have unthinkable in the past.

Bottom line…

I think the answer lies with the baby boomers (1946 – 1964) who were indoctrinated into progressive politics and passed along their changing values to children who lacked any frame of reference. And, when these children obtained some degree of bureaucratic or political power, they brought their dislike for America and tolerance for socialism along with them. In a sense, the Russians played the long game, with the help of a complicit Hollywood and media, and they prevailed in changing the character of America – at least in New York, California, and Washington, D.C. – with more states to follow. Not to be overlooked, those – including businessmen, politicians, and bureaucrats who profited mightily from the drug trade which decimated hundreds of thousands of individuals without firing a shot.

It is time to fight for an exceptional America and our constitution. A good start would be curtailing the political power of Democrats.

BEYOND THE BALLOT…

Apparently, I am being trolled by those who took exception to my post …

COMMUNISTS IN CALIFORNIA

Here in the People’s Republic of California, particularly in Venice, California, a beach community that has become a warm-weather resort for the homeless, addicts, and the mentally ill, we find a 29-year-old bartender from the Bronx (New York), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez introducing the old communist Bernie Sanders and disparaging America.

AOC-1

Let me know which of these AOC shorthand references to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not accurate or misstated…

AGAINST OUR CONSTITUTION
ATTACK ON CAPITALISM
ALIENS OVER CITIZENS 
All OUT COMMUNISM

Or in summary, ALL OUT CRAZY.

Bottom line…

What makes AOC so dangerous is not her ideas, most of which are nonsensical and unworkable in the real world, but the fact that she is being portrayed in the progressive mainstream media as the “face of the Democrat Party” or “the future of the Democrat Party.” Consider what they are saying. The Democrat Party has become the Communist Party of America. Governed by professional politicians who care only about themselves and their political future, the party second, their special interest friends third, and their constituents – maybe.

What has AOC done for her constituents in the Bronx other than to ensure that she would lose an estimated 25,000 jobs for her district because of her economic nonsense that providing a tax incentive was the same as writing a check to a big corporation? A funny position for one that received a degree in international relations and economics at Boston University, graduating cum laude in 2011. It is not that she is ignorant, but apparently, she must maintain the party line: capitalism is destructive to the people; big corporations are evil; all the taxpayer’s money belongs to the government. She travels around introducing Bernie Sanders, an old communist who worships the former Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela, and other nations that have “temporarily” enslaved their population “for their own good.” As if she was the younger heir apparent.

We need to go beyond the ballot. It is not enough to simply vote out Democrats; we need to develop a greater awareness of the threats of communism-lite (socialism) and communism. We need to take back our government, educational, and media institutions. We need to elect people who care for America and not themselves or their party.

Look around, and you will come to the same conclusion as me, we are screwed. As for the trolls, grow up before it is too late, and you are part of the work cadre in your assigned position.

AFTER CHRISTMAS ACTIVITIES

While you were recovering from your Christmas dinner, there were people watching out for you ..’

sb-rescue

It makes you wonder why someone would be in the water in the Sepulveda Basin after midnight on Christmas. It is likely that the rescued man was part of the homeless encampment on the banks of the Los Angeles River in the Sepulveda Basin and was caught by swiftly moving water down the flood control channel after heavy rain in the area.

Bottom line…

No matter. The great Los Angeles Fire Department’s Swift Water Rescue Team was available to save their life and look for other victims.

For those illegal aliens who think Los Angeles sucks, try this stunt in your country.

Well done LAFD.

A HOLIDAY SALE REMINDER

For those of you who are relaxed and perusing the holiday sales on the internet …

“Today’s payment” is only $9.95, so imagine your surprise when you start seeing monthly charges of $47.00 on your credit card beginning January 7, 2020?

dark-1

Fraudsters never rest …

Double-check your shopping cart and beware of these common sales scams.

Shopping Cart Sneaks – where additional goods, services, and charges magically appear in your shopping cart, especially after a tedious multi-product shopping effort, Fraudsters are hoping that you will not see the fraudulently-inserted items or do not want to deal with the time and effort to remove the item or correct the totals.

Insurance Sneaks – some of these additional sneaks are the high-profit product “insurance” offers that are mostly forgotten and never redeemed. Or even worse, an even higher-profit offering sold as “delivery insurance.”

Bonus sneaks – others are bonus offers or orders to double or triple your order – getting the merchandise for “free” by paying only the added shipping and handling costs, which are highly inflated.

Subscription sneaks – Formally known as continuity offers, the initial low price often obscures that your credit card will be charged on a repeating basis for additional goods or access to website content. These offers are often headlined “free trial.”

Is it the best price?

Any offer that uses scarcity, deadline, or rising price mentions should be treated with suspicion. Some sites will actually offer you a lower price if you attempt to leave the site using a pop-up lower-priced offer. Sone will try and shame you into purchasing by having to click on a button that says “No Thanks, I don’t want to make/save/enjoy {insert the offer here}.

Social proof and testimonials.

Beware of testimonials and social proof. It is quite common to create your own review sites using negative headlines such as “Is {product} a fraud or a scam?” and then continuing on with the pitch.

Testimonials with asterisked disclaimers?

A special category of hell is reserved for those who use asterisks and anecdotal evidence of cures, which would be immediately banned by the FDA or FTC if the claims were made directly. It is cruel to offer suffers from chronic conditions relief by selling health-based newsletters, which mostly contain cures relating to test subjects such as mice or sell products that have only a trace of the advertised substance – nowhere near a therapeutic dose. And disclaimers that discount almost everything in the sales copy and disclaim all responsibility for any problems. It would be honest to put “you’re on your own” following the claim with the asterisk.

Celebrity or authoritarian endorsers…

Some people will say or do anything to make a buck, especially near the end of their careers. Consider that M.D. hawking “life-enhancing” miracle cures as just another actor in a white coat. Most of these medical mavens are general practitioners, have a different specialty, or are hawking a line of super-profitable products. Consider that any physician selling a product without knowing the user’s condition to be a form of media malpractice. Ditto with celebrities, who are accomplished in some way, and merely selling access to their name.

I am being bombarded with Bill O’Reilly’s testimonials …

O’Reilly was the host of a top-rated Fox News show for years until he was implicated in allegations of sexual misconduct and involved in an acrimonious divorce. O’Reilly is a solid journalist, an accomplished “on-the-fly” writer second only to the late 60-Minutes’ Andy Rooney, a best-selling author, and a great overall on-the-air personality. But, I do not consider him a financial genius or even a reliable source when it comes to financial products and services.

oreilly

Bottom line…

The old advice is still solid in these digital days. Caveat Emptor – let the buyer beware. And, the sage advice of the Better Business Bureau: “Investigate BEFORE you invest.”

When I was designing large-scale mailorder processing systems, the sellers were making so much money on the tax-free shipping and handling that we needed to create a separate line item that could be netted against actual postage and shipping supplies to satisfy the taxing authorities. The labor was already charged elsewhere. The profits were enormous and flowed directly to the bottom line. Additionally, we found “self-liquidating premiums,” which could be offered “free” or at little cost – with the shipping and handling charges covering the cost of the merchandise and shipping — a wonderful way to acquire a customer at little or no expense.

Remember, today’s digital designers will use the very same psychological tricks they use to addict gamers to entice you to purchase the merchandise you may not ultimately want, need, or gift to others.

BEWARE!

And Bernie went on to say …

bernie-ven9ce

Of course, Cuba, Venezuela, China, Russia, and even North Korea come to mind … where the socialist/communist leadership is absolutely corrupt, and people who disagree with the political elite are killed in the name of the people.

How can this happen in America?

The Democrat Party has been infiltrated by socialists and communists who found that they could buy politicians to say what they want – and the media who gladly parroted the party line as if they were the public relations department of the Democratic National Committee.

For many, “Che Chic” has replaced commonsense. People whose only knowledge of Che Guevara, a murderous rapist, is the fashionable posters on the wall, the tee-shirts worn by the ignorant, and the slogans that are devoid of the horrible reality of mass murder and the enslavement of people.

Yes, the Democrats have radically changed. Even to the point of electing a Manchurian Candidate such as Barack Hussein Obama to the Presidency of the United States.

obama-change

From unprecedented corruption and scandal, the Obama Administration and their cadre of Democrat politicians and mainstream media sycophants did change America. Perhaps the only promise Barack Obama intended to keep. Here is an individual who presided over the radical transformation of our functioning healthcare system with a program named the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. An Act that was supposed to control medical expenses insures those who were unable or could not afford coverage and lower the insurance costs of obtaining quality care. Of course, premiums skyrocketed, deductibles skyrocketed, and the quality of care declined proportionally to people added to the system without a corresponding increase in physicians, facilities, diagnostic devices, and support personnel. Of course, the government expanded Medicaid, the government-subsidized welfare program where those uninsured or underinsured individuals found a home.

All capped by Obama’s big lie on June 6, 2009:  "If you like the plan you have, you can keep it.  If you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too.  The only change you’ll see are falling costs as our reforms take hold." What was unsaid is that the plan was to destroy the healthcare system, eliminate insurance companies except as facilitators, and make the government the sole determinant of your healthcare under a “single-payer system.” The very system being proposed by the Democrats from their 2020 election campaigns.

Then there was the subversion and politicization of the main government agencies, among them: the Internal Revenue Service, the Department of State, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Education, the Environmental Protection Agency and so on.

And, we all saw the rapid deterioration of our economy, which the media spun as “the new normal.”

Bottom line…

We cannot continue moving left into socialism. The Democrat Party, the anti-civil-rights party of racism, segregation, and Jim Crow must be reformed if America is to grow and maintain its status as an exceptional nation. It should surprise nobody that the refugee flow is always towards America. That “hateful” dysfunctional place that people are willing to risk their lives to enter.

If we continue allowing Democrats to run the show, we are screwed.

P.S. You may wish to thank the Attorney General and the hard-working individuals at the Department of Justice for providing a pre-Christmas gift…

California CEO and Seven Others Charged in Multi-Million Dollar Conduit Campaign Contribution Case

Earlier today, an indictment was unsealed against the CEO of an online payment processing company, and seven others, charging them with conspiring to make and conceal conduit and excessive campaign contributions, and related offenses, during the U.S. presidential election in 2016 and thereafter.

A federal grand jury in the District of Columbia indicted Ahmad “Andy” Khawaja, 48, of Los Angeles, California, on Nov. 7, 2019, along with George Nader, Roy Boulos, Rudy Dekermenjian, Mohammad “Moe” Diab, Rani El-Saadi, Stevan Hill and Thayne Whipple. The 53 count indictment charges Khawaja with two counts of conspiracy, three counts of making conduit contributions, three counts of causing excessive contributions, 13 counts of making false statements, 13 counts of causing false records to be filed, and one count of obstruction of a federal grand jury investigation. Nader is charged with conspiring with Khawaja to make conduit campaign contributions, and related offenses. Boulos, Dekermenjian, Diab, El-Saadi, Hill, and Whipple are charged with conspiring with Khawaja and each other to make conduit campaign contributions and conceal excessive contributions, and related offenses. <Source>

Among the donation recipients we find: Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, and many of the major Democrat organizations and campaigns. <Source>

It should be noted that George Nader is already in custody. “George Nader, who was a key witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, is charged in a new federal indictment with transporting a 14-year-old boy for sex, child pornography and carrying obscene materials. Mueller’s report says Nader helped arrange a January 2017 meeting between Erik Prince and the head of Russia’s sovereign wealth fund, who reported directly to Vladimir Putin, as part of a purported Russian effort to build a link with President Donald Trump’s new administration. <Source>

I can just imagine what the rats will say to save their sorry Democrat asses.

WHO OR WHAT CAN STOP THE DEMOCRATS FROM DESTROYING OUR CONSTITUTION?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ignores all of the past norms and assigns six House Committees to investigate President Trump without a vote of the full House.

House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff holds a one-sided inquiry in secret and ignores due process.

House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerrold Nadler calls professors as witnesses but does not interview one fact witness.

After hearing only one fact witness, and one who presents exculpatory evidence, the House impeaches the President of the United States on charges so vague they can mean anything.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi withholds delivery of the Articles of Impeachment from the Senate in an attempt to coerce the Senate into holding the hearings which should have taken place in the House.

The House of Representatives is wildly out of control.

Who will stand up for America and stop this runaway train headed left for post-constitutional socialism?

Truth be told, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and Jerrold Nadler should all be charged with Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress -- and removed from office.

ABUSE-OF-POWER

After reading the Articles of Impeachment twice, one is hard-pressed to determine the exact crime that requires this ultimate presidential penalty. In fact, near as I can tell, President Trump's crimes are simply stated.

One, Trump is not a part of the elite ruling class.

Two, Trump does not appear to pay slavish attention to customs and traditions.

And worst of all, three, Trump does not engage in the gentlemanly conduct of a George W. Bush or Mitt Romney -- he fights back, caring not about the media or the size of his opponent. 

Tensions between the two parties have never been greater nor the House Majority so corrupt. As 2020 rapidly approaches, we are well and truly screwed.

DISAFFECTED DEMOCRATS NOT WISHING YOU SEASON'S GREETINGS

It is no laughing matter, but these meme-makers have highlighted what is going wrong in America. They all have one thing in common; they point to the progressive socialist democrats who are acting as a fifth column to destroy our country from within. This is not the Democrat Party of my parents, nor is it even the Democrat Party I remember from my youth. It appears that the welcoming nature of America has allowed our country to be infiltrated by those who do not wish us well and who are using our funding and laws against all Americans.

I was asked, once again, in honor of the holiday season to donate to the homeless. There is no doubt in my mind that there are legitimately homeless and those who need assistance in our community. But I also see hundreds of millions of dollars washing through the system to wind up in the pockets of politicians, their families, the “quid pro quo” special interests that fund their campaign and provide voter support, the consultants, the activists, and others who profit from working the system. Many of the homeless are mentally ill, addicted, and who lack the socialization to live independently. They are at home, and in many cases, in peace living on the streets free from society's constraints and demands.

It is heartbreaking to hear about seniors who are participating in a Christmas program where they write wishes on a paper Christmas ornament – and those wishes are for toilet paper, paper toweling, a blanket, or batteries for a radio. How can this be in an America so generous that they provide BILLIONS of dollars in aid to foreign countries, much of which is siphoned into the pockets of dictators and others?

For decades I have heard that the Democrats are the party of the poor, the working man, and those who are denied criminal and social justice. What you do not hear is that the Democrats are the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and unimaginable political corruption. What you don’t hear is that those evil corporations are providing jobs and keeping the economy afloat. What you do not hear is that Democrats who are clearly guilty of criminal activities being punished.

And now what you hear is that a President who has not committed a single crime is guilty of what the Democrats would have done – or former Vice President Joe Biden has done – under similar circumstances.

Perhaps it would be illustrative to see Democrat social justice at work …

This is former President Obama’s new $15 million 7000 square-foot beach home in Martha’s Vineyard.
Not his principle residence, but his vacation property
.

It is no laughing matter, but many a truth is told in jest…

Bottom line…

Before you make that donation to a corrupt political party that receives the majority of its money from the special interests, think about contributing it to senior citizens or others who are struggling. Get out the vote in 2020. Ignore the fiction of aid shipments to foreign nations, which are little more than disguised farm subsidies to corporate, not family farms. Ask yourself why we are still blending ethanol into gasoline when we know it is harmful to engines, and it artificially inflates the cost of food in favor of higher artificially-priced fuel additives? Demand that your community repair or replace its crumbling utility infrastructure before funding needless art programs and other miscellaneous special interest projects. Demand accountability by voting.

We are screwed … but still have an opportunity to reform the system – starting with holding Democrats accountable for what they have done to our great nation, and what they plan to do to our exceptional America in the future.
