Hell of a Story

LIKE IT OR NOT. THIS MAN PUT HIS NAME AND PICTURE TO WHAT HE HAD TO SAY.
ONE HELL OF A LETTER!

Because I am a “lifer” in the military, I’ve seen the impact of a president more than many of you can imagine. I enlisted with LBJ and saw just what a Democrat clusterflock was all about. I went to Vietnam and saw how we were constantly and incessantly bombarded with micromanagement from Washington that got thousands of military people killed. I sometimes wonder if I’ll get to heaven, but if I go to hell, I’m sure I’ll still be a few hundred floors above that bastard Robert McNamara , LB Johnson, John Kerry, Jane Fonda, and yes, even the “hero” John McCain.

After Johnson “abdicated” rather than having his ass waxed, I lived through Nixon who was hawkish but allowed the generals (and there WERE a few real generals back then versus now) run the show. Nixon was so out of touch that he never knew North Vietnam was about to surrender when the Paris Accord was presented.

Only God could help us after Gerald Ford was beaten by Jimmy ‘Peanuts’ Carter who’d been funded by Saudi money. The military was turned into Section 8 and even the Whitehouse suffered the austerity.

Then the light began to shine and Ronald Reagan swept into the fray. He not only loved the country and the military, they loved him back. Esprit d’corps was off the scale during his presidency. The Liberals were slowly turning into socialists, however, and about this time all the draft dodgers of the 1960’s who’d been given amnesty by Jimmy ‘Peanuts’ were turning out college graduates with degrees in socialism.

Bush 1 was an enigma from the CIA and though he never did much either way, he NEVER DID MUCH EITHER WAY.

Welcome to Bill Clinton. Clinton spent most of his two terms wagging the dog and creating the ‘Oral’ Office, sending a bomber to blow up Quaddafi’s tent and killing a goat or two, while allowing the UN to set up the infamous Black Hawk Down situation. He made history by becoming only the second president to be impeached.

I actually felt sorry for Bush 2. He was doomed to infamy from the start. He thought most of America was still the rah rah patriots of WWII when they were ‘simply socialists’ waiting to feed him to the sharks.

Then there came the Manchurian Candidate Obama with a faked (OK Democrats, let’s say “of questionable origin” to assuage your PC brains) birth certificate, who’d gotten a free ride through college under a foreign student exemption, and whose college records and complete life history had been ‘sealed.’ (We know more about Thomas Jefferson’s bastard children than we do about Obama, Michelle , OR their two faked kids.) From his inaugural address, he slandered America and within days had begun to encourage dissention of the races as well as slandering police who “acted stupidly.” That was mild to the crap that would come in doubling the national debt from what had been built by ALL THE PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS COMBINED, feeding us bull—-about how Muslims built this country, and nationalizing American industries. Fueled by George Soros’ money and using the Air Force fleet as his personal charters, he appointed malcontents and traitors into positions of authority. He trashed the Constitution by installing “czars” (interesting he chose a title like that) to bypass Congressional authority. By that time, Congress was completely corrupt on both sides of the aisle. No one had the nerve to impeach this charlatan Obama.

Mysteriously, the lone outspoken conservative Supreme Court Justice Scalia suddenly dies in his sleep at an Obama pal’s hunting lodge and the Supreme Court is evenly split. Finally, Congress shows some nerve and rejects Obama’s Supreme Court Justice nomination. The Libertards aren’t worried because the fix is in. Soros ‘has paid’ demonstrators to cause turmoil at ‘all the Republican gatherings.’ Obama concedes that illegal aliens should vote as they won’t be prosecuted, and Soros-manufactured voting machines are caught switching votes in certain precincts. Hillary has cheated her way to the nomination and her lies are completely ignored by the brainwashed minions of sycophants who follow her.

But a shocking thing happened on the way to the forum.

Middle America had had enough and although the pollsters and the pipers tried to convince middle America not even to bother to vote, they were fed up with the denizens of the swamp. It was time. Florida was designated a “swing” state ignoring that all those old retirees living in St. Petersburg, and the fed up Cuban Americans of Miami weren’t interested in their platform. Ohio and Pennsylvania , where coal production was blacklisted and where Obama had ridiculed them for “clinging to their Bibles and their guns,” lay awaiting this supposed “landslide” Hillary vote,…. and creamed it.

The Socialist world of the Democratic Party disintegrated. An American who expressed unbridled love of country and respect for police, firemen, and military steamrolled across the heartland and the liberals realized their scheme was trashed. A CONSTITUTIONALIST would be nominated to the Supreme Court and if the old hag Ginsburg who’d claimed to retire if Trump were elected would actually retire and leave, the Supreme Court would have a massive majority of CONSTITUTIONALISTS for the next 40-50 years.

Now, the same party who’d ridiculed Trump on his comments about the election being rigged, started screaming that the election ‘was’ rigged. They even advocated having the election repeated. They created mobs that burned and pillaged, stopped traffic, threatened murder, battery and rape of Trump supporters, and became the anarchists that the socialist dream thrives upon. They run like castrated pigs for safe zones and use diaper pins as their national symbol.

This is exactly what happens when political correctness takes over and participation trophies are awarded to everyone. They can’t conceive how disgusting and subservient they have become. Donald Trump may NOT be the best person for the job, but he’s such a welcome respite from the candy-assed whimps who’ve been running the swamp that it’s refreshing to see. At the very least, Donald Trump derailed the Socialist train and bought us precious time. If he only does half of what he’s promised, we’ll still be legions ahead of where Obama has dragged us. Already countries who held us in contempt are lining up to be found in the favor of America. Donald Trump has done more in his short time in the public eye…he prevented Hillary Clinton from becoming president!

So for you liberal lurkers and you half-assed fence-sitters, Tough—-! You had your big hurrah and now your party is over. For you staunch Republicans in office, don’t gloat so much yourselves You’ve been put on notice by the American people that we’re fed up with ALL YOU BASTARDS and if you don’t start putting America first, you do so at your own peril. You might want to buy a copy of George McGovern’s autobiography and see how shocking and humbling it can be for a professional politician to have to try to find legitimate work once he falls from grace.

This election was pure, unadulterated AMERICAN. Hillary got beaten and AMERICA WON THE ELECTION. You can claim he’s not “your president” all you want, but unless you ‘forfeit’ your American citizenship, ….

YES, HE IS YOUR PRESIDENT!!!!
Go cry a river some place they need water.

Boomers and Social Media

Boomers and Social Media

Generations of people have come and gone on this planet. A Generation is usually considered to be roughly 25 years or so, as that is the amount of time that parents raise their children up to “child rearing age”. So, 25 years is arbitrarily chosen as a ‘generation’.

There are several generations living at once on Earth, and in particular in the United States (which is where we use these terms most often). Other countries might call their generations something different. The “definitions” below are meant only to give you some familiarity with them and when they were born.

Your author comes from the Baby Boomers. Mid-late 50s, raised in the 60s, and coming of “age” in the 70s (voting age, drinking age, joining-the-military-age).

You can pick your own spot on the list below.

While a Boomer, your author (who “identifies as a” ‘he’ since birth) and has been involved in computers since a very early age, built his first computer himself from components and circuit boards assembled at home in the 1970s. The first one was 4K of ram, programmed with switches and LEDs, in binary. Programs were saved on a cassette tape. So, computers are not unfamiliar to this author. Many others his age are less inclined to be involved with computers and as such our generation (Older Boomers) is frowned upon as “computer illiterate”. This is blatantly untrue and an extremely undeserved reputation.  Without Baby Boomers, computers wouldn’t even exist, let alone have the innovations they have today.

For the rest of us who might be disinclined to mess with them, this article is for you specifically – Baby Boomers, please read this.

  • 2000 to Present: New Silent Generation or Generation Z

  • 1980 to 2000: Millennials or Generation Y

  • 1965 to 1979: Thirteeners or Generation X

  • 1946 to 1964: Baby Boomers ← for whom this article is mainly written

  • 1925 to 1945: Silent Generation

  • 1900 to 1924: G.I. Generation

Above is a list of accepted names for the Generations. The explanation of why they are called such, or why we even name generations is beyond the scope of this article so for now, for now just accept this list, understand where YOU personally are in the list and let’s move on.

It is generally recognized that most of us Baby Boomers are “old”. Our grand children expect us to be ignorant of computers, how Social Media works, and how to even use a smart phone.

Nothing could be further from the truth. You can teach an old dog new tricks, assuming, of course the “Old Dog” wants to learn. Social Media of various sorts out there exist and each has a purpose and place in life. Some join Facebook to keep in contact with their children and grandchildren. Others join Twitter (and now Gab) to make comments on politics or daily life.

There is LinkedIn, useful for posting resumes, job offers, and keeping in contact with others in similar fields (and even unrelated but helpful in obtaining a position, or helping others to get jobs). LinkedIn is the ultimate Networking tool for computers. In the old days, we “Old Folks” just used the telephone (remember that there were phones hanging on walls once?) and paper resumes, letters and knocks on office doors to hand deliver things.

Here’s a quick list of all the types of Social Media sites of which I’m personally aware:

Facebook (https://facebook.com) Stay in touch with family and friends, a “party line” if you will. Some censorship.

Twitter (https://twitter.com) Make a statement. Have followers. “Pontificate”, so to speak. Lots of censorship depending on who you are, and what you say.

Gab (https://Gab.ai) Very much like Twitter. No censorship.

Linked In (https://linkedin.com) Business networking, mentoring, industry.

Sound Cloud (https://soundcloud.com) Music, Listen, create and share with other musicians)

Instagram (https://instagram.com/) Share art, photos etc with others.

Pintrest (https://www.pinterest.com) Literally a “scrap book” with everything from photos to recipes.

Vine (https://vine.co) Six seconds of short videos.

Tumblr (https://www.tumblr.com) A chronological media site, pictures, words, a public diary of sorts.

Meetup (http://www.meetup.com) Meet with people, in person for group sports, other social activities.

Yours truly has only specific personal knowledge on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Gab.

I will discuss three of those here, very briefly and try to assist the uninitiated in a few simple hints about using these particular Social Mediums.

Facebook: Facebook has been around a long time now. It is used by many for anything from talking to friends using the built in Messenger to posting public remarks on personal pages (or on friends pages). We use it to keep in contact with friends from all walks of life, from old jobs, High School, our children, our grandchildren, and people we’ve met over the years.

Twitter: As an author we use it to put our name out there, to gain a following, and hope they will purchase my books, provide reviews and tell others to read my books. Many use it as a political platform. We specifically will address this shortly.

Gab: Exactly as above, we use it to get my name out to multiple “fans” and again, hope they will remember the author’s name, purchase our books and forward on reviews and convince others to “read”. Again, Gab, like Twitter is also used as a political platform.

LinkedIn: We have used it in the past to put out my resume. We have had job offers through it, but since we are retired, have accepted none of them, nor even interviewed for anything. You can communicate with others, with companies and with prospective employees as well.

Now, to get to the meat of this article.

Politics. For Baby Boomers. Specifically.

We all have our foibles, and idiosyncrasies. We all believe we know more than everyone else at times. We also do NOT stand on ceremony at times and will spit out what we’re trying to say, even thought we truly do NOT necessarily understand what we think we do. We’re all guilty of this to some degree. And yes, we are generalizing.

When it comes to Twitter and Gab, we step in, we say things and move on. We don’t communicate. We don’t engage people. We do not listen to each other. We “pontificate”. Twitter and Gab are both very one sided if you allow it to be so.

So – as a suggestion, for those Boomers who have found themselves on Twitter and Gab we would implore you to “slow down and read” and then investigate. And also to compare your thinking with others.

Twitter makes you feel as if it’s about Quantity over Quality. Tweets (the messages users type on Twitter) are sent out to your Followers which are then read by followers, or retweeted or liked, or ignored. Sometimes followers respond positively or negatively to something you’ve said. Gab works the same way.

Gab and Twitter have “rooms” which you can’t see in Twitter except as Messages. Gab has a set of “rooms” you can see if you’re placed in one, or create it yourself. You don’t have to remain in a room, you can always leave.

But, here’s the biggest point. If someone places you into a room, they have liked something you’ve said and wish to hear from you more. Privately. Or with friends. There are bad uses for rooms, like spammers that want you buy something, watch a movie, or just pester you. You should leave those rooms.

If someone puts you/invites you to a room, you should engage them. Talk, find out what the room is. If it’s not your thing, leave. If it is something you’re interested in, they are seeking your advice, help, or some other thing from you. If you can help, you should ask them what they seek. If it’s advice and you’re not used to getting paid for your advice (Lawyers? Lol) simply help them out.

Boomers, you’re the elder generation. The YOUNG people in those other generations listed above actually are seeking advice from older people. They just don’t realize it yet. We do not mean that in any sort of derogatory manner.

Quite the contrary.

Young people are all we have left in this world, when we’re gone. They seek knowledge, they seek advice, they seek wisdom of the older people to help carry them through to “their time” when they become the leaders of this world.

Many of us disagree, sometimes vehemently with younger people and what we consider to be their “stupid ideas”, but without our guidance, all they have is elementary school, high school, college.

“Book Education does not a person, make.”

Common Sense isn’t common. Book learning is not the end of a education. And a Boomer CAN use Social Media.

The last thing we want to say about any of them is simple, but complex at the same time.

Most of us want to get onto Facebook and say hi to our kids, or on Twitter and yell about some political thing going on at the moment. What we fail to realize is that sometimes, no one listens to you. They don’t care. They don’t even, we’re afraid, even LOOK at what you said.

Occasionally, a smart, pithy comment will gain notice and will get sent on, liked, forwarded, re-tweeted or re-gabbed (as the case might be).

But – is that your legacy? Do you want to be ignored? Or would you prefer to count somewhere?

Here’s the complexity in the situation.

Most of you reading this will be “Right Wing”, “Moderate” or Middle of the Road on politics because of the site(s) it’s being posted on. So, we’re going to give you the secret.

Join Gab. Do it today. Do it now. Create a profile. Put a picture up (not yours). Give yourself a cool sounding name. Put up a banner picture (something having to do with what you’re passionate about).

Now, once you’re there, introduce yourself. If you’re a Right Winger – you might put something in your profile indicating you support, say President Trump. Go into the “Introduce yourself” section and say “HI, I’m whomever-you-are, and I believe this that and the other thing.”

You will suddenly be noticed. Someone will talk to you, someone will follow you, someone will re-Gab your message.

You will eventually find yourself invited to follow others, and you will follow others, and you will find your words. You will get invited to rooms/groups to communicate.

Don’t stop there. USE YOUR WORDS. Use your groups to find like-minded individuals who are, like you, for Freedom, against Censorship and want to Make America Great Again.

If you do this, we promise you a different perspective on politics, life in general and Social Media.

One last piece of advice for those of you on the other media, like Facebook. Keep politics completely off your personal page if you like your friends and don’t care who they are, or what they believe. Join a group on Facebook who has a political group you enjoy. Stay out of the ones you do NOT like. It’s a survival tool.

Separate your politics from your life, from your family, from your friends and from your hobbies.

You will survive longer. And – check your security settings on every place you visit.

Twitter Revisited:   Twitter is changing their “rules” in a few days (18 December 2017), their terms of service will allow them to suspend any account they feel like, when ever they wish, and they have been particularly set on removing people who are Trump Supporters, Right Wingers and anyone else they deem to be “dangerous”. If you don’t believe that, just read some of the material being bandied about the past few weeks on the Internet about the subject.

In reading the TOS for Twitter, we do NOT find they are specifically going to limit targeted accounts, except for spammers, and “name squatters” and so forth.  The whole “Twitter Purge” still may come about, it might be a non-event.  But, we will discover that on the 18th of December 2017, we are sure.

Gab is absolutely the newest, and safest way to “get your word out” and the network is growing. A few days ago, Andrew Torba (@a) stated they were at 333,333 accounts. No where near as large as Twitter yet, but, Twitter’s been around awhile. Gab is pretty new, measure in a couple of years now.

Twitter means to silence the Right. They mean to silence anyone who does not conform to their unwritten standards of “Left Leaning”, “Progressive” or “Muslim” apparently. At some point, something is going to give, and Twitter is going to crash and burn. Facebook is as creepy as it gets for wanting and collecting information about you, and sending you ads.

The whole “Net Neutrality” thing isn’t neutral at all. It’s an effort by the “information providers” like Google, Twitter, Facebook and the like to OWN the bandwidth and force the “bandwidth providers” (the ISPs) to pay for it all. Raising prices on the public (those of us who use it to collect information) is the point.

Freedom of Speech is being driven into the ground, censored and called Hate Speech. Both sides are somewhat guilty of this too. Not the Right and certainly not just the Left. Both. But, when the Right says something it’s called names like “racist” or something similar, and the same language from the Left is championed as “free speech”.

It’s not. It’s as much hate speech as we have heard in years.

If you are a Baby Boomer, and you want your voice heard, then we URGE you to sit down and learn something of the various Social Media sites, choose your poison and dive in. Don’t hit and run, that is don’t post and move on.

Engage both friend and foe alike. Use your words. Not your curse words either. Don’t name call… unless they do it first. But, it’s always better to keep your message clear and on point without distractions and there will be distractions. There will be people who hate your face, your name, your ancestry, your political stance.

You must stand firm in your convictions and correctness. That is “Be Correct”. Don’t lie, don’t make it up, don’t take the first conspiracy theory you see and espouse it. Don’t even BELIEVE those. Do your own research and if you don’t know how to do research DO NOT TAKE THINGS AT FACE VALUE EVER, not from either side.

Common sense rules, and with it you can determine the veracity of statements from the media.  Do not use “fact checking sites”.  That’s the lazy way out, and the chances of them being correct are very low, especially since most of them are paid for by Left Leaning organizations!

Knowledge is key. Facts are Truth. There’s no such thing as “my truth and your truth”. There is only Truth.

Social Media is the key to communication these days, and it has found more errors in “Main Stream Media” than another other researcher or group, or so-called “Fact Checking Group” (those things are another bane of human existence, how lazy must one be to simply believe what ever is fed to you by Snopes or Politifact?)

Knowledge is not only key. It is power. Power to win arguments and debates. Power to build a bigger, better mousetrap. Or political party.  Or group of like minded individuals.

Knowledge, above all else, is what makes us human. Our intelligence is innate, but still derived from knowledge. Without knowledge, we are simple animals who live, eat, sleep and excrete. We are more than animals.

So Boomers… if you have some hatred for computers (why are you reading this then?) or more likely a hatred for “large government” or “intrusive government” or “intrusive applications” get over it. This is the 21st Century. The Government is NOT coming after you for speaking your mind. Unless that Government becomes a Left Leaning Marxist regime (which it could again).  Using your speech helps the rest of us prevent a Left Leaning Marxist regime.

Stand up (or rather sit down at your computer) and be heard. Think. Learn. Be powerful.

Use your Social Media to work with others.

If the Key to Power is knowledge, then the key to success is Communications through Social Media.

Do it. Today.

Summary:

  • Slow down and read the messages.  Read the comments and thread of messages below the original message.
  • Engage with others.  Pro and Con.
  • Don’t argue a point until you have your point clear in your head and can BACK UP YOUR STATEMENTS.
  • Don’t call the other side names.  It’s immature.  As much as you want to do it, DON’T.
  • If the other side behaves irrationally (and the Left certainly does) it’s probably time to move on.
  • Engage pro commentators and follow them, help them, and certainly give them other info privately.
  • Grow your OWN group of Followers on Twitter, Facebook and Gab.
  • Keep your followers engaged with pithy, informational, and fact-filled comments.
  • Take care to CHECK YOUR SOURCES of information carefully.
  • Being the first with a piece of information (unless you’re watching it happen) isn’t always best.
  • Quality over Quantity.
  •  Don’t forget to thank others for following occasionally and follow them back.
  • Like their good posts.  Ignore the junk.
  • Use your WORDS.  The Best words.  Not bad words. Not cuss words.

This Author doesn’t always practice what he preaches either.  Sometimes cuss words come out, sometimes bad words come out, and sometimes one can’t help but point out exactly what Evil in this world is without using some of those words.  Don’t be afraid to NOT point out evil!

New York, Port Authority Bombing

Today is Monday, 11 September 2017.

Earlier this morning a premature detonation of a belt or vest bomb occurred in New York’s Port Authority area.

The only apparent injuries (at least being reported at this time) are the bomber.

The bombing suspect is ID’d as Akayed Ullah, 27.  Officials say. “He had burns and wounds to his body…This male was wearing an improvised low-tech explosive device attached to his body. He intentionally detonated that device.”

So, not so “premature” was it?  Deliberate.  Calculated to do massive damage and murder people.

And, his name says it all.

Islam is a cancer.  It needs to be excised from this country.  Muslims should be out in the streets protesting these murderers, but they aren’t.

There IS NO SUCH THING as a “Moderate Muslim”.  If you say you are, you’re lying.  If you have friends who are “nice, upstanding Muslims” they are trying to fit in, until they grown large enough in numbers to force you to their will.

There is NO MORE compromise with these people.  Shun them.  Turn away from them.  Do not buy from them.  Do not sell them anything.  Remove them from our neighborhoods and send them back to the Hell they call the Middle East.  They do not belong in American Society and can not be trusted, will not assimilate and obviously intend you harm.

Western Society has become too passive, too scared and too cowed by the Left claiming “racism”.  It is done.

We will NOT stand for Islam, we will defeat it.

Islam is doomed.

Edit: Obama’s Fault

The Twitter Purge (#TwitterPurge)

It is happening.  Reports of suspensions, daily, weekly and permanent are coming out of Twitland.

The vast majority of those reporting them?  Conservatives.  Usually they make a remark about Islam and are given a suspension, and/or ordered to “remove the offending tweets”.

Many of these people are moving to Gab a relative new comer to Social Media.  Launched on 15 August 2016, the brainchild of Andrew Torba (@a), CEO of Gab.

As of a few days ago, well over 333,000 users have joined the rapidly growing network in direct competition to Twitter.

Twitter is driving people away by the thousands it seems, with it’s threatened “Purge”.  While Twitter doesn’t call it a purge, the TOS has been changed, and will go into effect on 18 December 2017 (interestingly enough, this happens to be Josef Stalin’s Birthday).

Stalin’s quotes certainly say something about Twitter, even though it didn’t exist by the time he died, but it is impossible for Twitter as a company to not grasp these words.

It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.
The only real power comes out of a long rifle.
Education is a weapon, whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
“The people who count the votes” decide everything.  Twitter is based on “votes” or likes, re-tweets and your ability to gain followers.  If you are denied followers by the Twitter algorithm, you are denied votes.
The rifle is Twitter’s ability to ban, and suspend users, which it has been doing in enormous numbers of late.
Education of the public – or rather – brainwashing is the goal.  If you speak up about Islam, you get banned as “hate speech”.  If you support Trump too outwardly, you will find yourself banned.  If you speak of Hillary Clinton in a negative light, or call for her incarceration, you will be suspended for some period of time known only to Twitter.
This author was banned for speaking out about Clinton.  At least we believe it was about Clinton.
This Twit was banned for something even less explosive:
Calling ICE is promoting “hate speech” in Twitter’s view?  How interesting.
This is a Reality Check Wake Up Call for every American who believes in Free Speech.
Here is why:  Twitter’s Mission statement is clear:
Our mission: To give everyone the power to create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers.
By banning a particular group of people, ideas or thoughts, they have summarily punished “wrongthink” (Look that up, and George Orwell, and “1984”).
When a private company blatantly states they are going to give everyone the power to create and share ideas and information, and then select certain people whose ideas don’t meet some particular, unknown requirement, there is some internal collusion in the company to denying groups of people that ability.
It is time to FIGHT BACK.  We URGE you, one and all to migrate your account over to Gab before the “purge” comes.
To be fair, when this author was suspended it was for 12 hours.  It was actually for an innocuous comment about Clinton, and the account was reinstated.  However, the account was also “muted” for a few days.  NONE of the normal retweets happened, no one liked anything posted, and it took a few days to get back the hundreds of followers that summarily vanished who had previously been following the account.
So, the tools Twitter is using also appear to include a “mute”, a “shadow ban” of some kind – probably the same thing, preventing your messages from getting out.
People who read this blog are smart folks.  They know they should investigate things like “conspiracy theories” and learn the facts before jumping to conclusions, so we urge you to do your own investigations, and then we urge you to go ahead and create that account on Gab.ai.  Don’t wait until “D Day” to do it.
If it doesn’t come off as planned, that’s fine.  You have a secondary place to communicate with the brothers and sisters in arms.  In fact, Gab appears to be mostly a Right Wing hang out, but is also populated with Left wing trolls, some apparent “KKK” types (whom we detest) and others who are perhaps less socially acceptable in polite society.  But, you have a MUTE button for those types and a spam box.
Gab has a brand new feature in effect in the last few days called a “Chat Room”.  Up to 50 people can be in the rooms.  This matches Twitter’s “chat room” which shows up in messages.
There are no limits on following, or being followed as Twitter has.
Hash tags work fine on Gab.
Essentially, Gab is still being built, worked on, changed and modified as designers find time and come up with new ideas.  You can certainly help by making suggestions.
There is a “Pro” version, which is subscription, so you can create paid content, but not necessary for just snooping about.
In addition to all of this, there are some articles we’ve chosen to highlight.  They are suggested reading to bring you up to speed on a few things, like how you can more effectively get your words seen by others.  Below are several links to articles.  You will discover in reading them that there is a “Method in the madness” for some, especially those who are helping President Trump in the background to get the word out.
This is similar to what the Left does as well.  In other words, study these articles for some secrets to communication with others.
Another article will appear soon here for you Baby Boomers.  Baby Boomers are less computer inclined it seems to the younger crowd.  We’d like to help raise everyone’s awareness to Social Media uses, and perhaps educate both the Boomers, as well as the younger crowd that we’re not as old and stupid as we might look to them.
So, read the articles below, and remember this:
Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it.  – George Orwell

Shameless Promotional Post

Normally, I do not like ads, and I don’t like reading about others’ books in some circumstances.  But in this case, I really want to post a link here for a book I’ve written.

It’s not actually about America, or Freedom,  or guns, or …. ok, yes it is.  But it’s Science Fiction, a future that COULD happen to the people of the USA if we continue on the path we’re on.

The book is called “Aftermath’s Children” and takes place aboard a Space Station.  The background story is that America was slowly, inexorably brought into a “Socialist” society, not unlike that of Roddenberry’s world of Star Trek, with some twists.  The twist is, there is no star travel, AI exists and it because powerful, but hidden, manipulating men and women, the Net, the militaries of the world, until the End.

A few enterprising people knew it was happening, had the power, money and abilities to rescue – at least in their minds – “the human race”.

America At War

The Las Vegas shooter has not yet been identified – at least not in a “political sense”.

The authorities haven’t put out any motives, and certainly haven’t assigned his attacks as “terrorism”.  I suppose this is because they can’t, or don’t want to do so.

This author will point out that he has connections with the Philippines and by association, the Muslim world.  Indonesia has the largest group of Muslims on the planet.

We are sincerely at war.  We are war with Islam, and have been for a long time, truthfully since the 1700s.  Even Thomas Jefferson recognized we were at war with them.  That war has never stopped and there has never been a truce.

Deeper than the war with Islam however, is a war against rational thought, against thinking, against the beliefs of Conservatism.  Against the American Way of Life.

The Left has become an incoherent mass of victims, blaming everyone but themselves for everything happening in America.  They tear down what is right, and destroy the ideals of truth.  Facebook has tried to suppress any news out of  Las Vegas.  Ok, perhaps not “any” but some.  By redirecting people to, of all places, Politifact.  Interesting.  When we tried to post some alternative news (which, by the way has turned out to be TRUE) a popup box showed, attempting to redirect readers somewhere else.  But don’t believe this article, here are the actual screen shots I took myself.

I’m sorry but I will not be directed.  Not by Facebook, Twitter, a Government Agency.  None. No one. Americans can find themselves in dangerous situations like Las Vegas.  Truth. Carry your gun. Carry it everywhere, regardless of rules.  Ignore the laws.  They are there to get you killed.

No a hand gun would not have likely helped in Las Vegas.  A rifle might, but most of us couldn’t have stopped him at that distance.  But there are other incidents where we could have.

We are now in a war.  I will tell you now why I believe this.  Even without evidence to support what I am about to say the Left declared war on traditional values long ago.  We all know they did. We all know that the Left denigrates anything good on the Right.  They teach the young that we’re evil.  We’re “Nazis”.  We’re “racists”.  And they scream and yell if we point to them and place them in a “generalized box” of “Liberals”.  Funny how that works.

It’s ok for the Left to place the Right, Conservatives, Christians and others into one box, but not for us to do the same thing.  They fight for control of our minds by indoctrinating the children, calling us names, and making us all appear to be evil.

And they blame the tools, not the men who use them for the damages caused.

Progressive Tyranny is the word.  This is what they do.  This is how they control.  It’s not about “Gun Control”, it’s about “Control”.  Whether it is gun control, mind control, school control, or Control of the White Right Wing… it’s about control.

We will leave you with an important message from Gabe Suarez:

I would urge you read his material.

I would also urge you to carry concealed.  All the time now.  Do not become a victim.  Do not become a statistic.

— apologies for this being a bit distracted, but take each sentence and read them as 160 character text messages.  Perhaps then it will make more sense to the “computer indoctrinated” world.

 

Antifa: The REAL Nazis of the 21st Century

 

Sprouting up in the past few months a group calling themselves “Anti Fascists” or ANTIFA have become a loose cannon.

The group summarily calls anyone of any Conservative bent “fascists” and equates them with “Nazis”, posting pictures of Swastikas, Nazi uniformed men, and trying to tie everyone to Skinheads and White Supremacist groups.  They are using the media to make these connections, and they are also doing severe damage to themselves and others.

These so-called “unknown” people wear masks, blend into groups, incite riots as they have done in the G20 summit, and around some US towns and around Europe.  They have set fires, broken windows, looted, and beat people.

A few days ago I noted they had a site in Colorado Springs area and have been posting images of Patriots around the state calling for violence against them.

As a child I learned how the Nazis came to power, with Hitler leading them.  The same tactics used then are being used now.

Make no mistake.  The Antifa people are animals and are, without a doubt dangerous to Civilization, in as much as Islam is dangerous to Civilization. They are terrorists, they seek to over throw capitalism and institute complete Socialism and a Socialist Society.  These are the SAME sorts of people who brought about the Holocaust against the Jews and they are same sort of people who will round you up and execute you for being a Right Winger or even a Left Winger who refuses to follow their lead.

Perhaps Americans should read and understand the rise of Naziism to help to fight what is coming.

Be warned, America.  Antifa IS the NAZI party, with a new face, new name but the same old tactics.

And this I took directly from one of their sites.  It’s old, but still important to see how they think:

 

Rules of engagement – Antifa

London anti-fascists gather at Cable Street mural

Tactics and organisational rules adopted by the militant London Antifa group which had a number of successes against the far-right through the mid-noughties.

Our tactics and our organisational rules are the product of long experience. We believe that to be an effective direct action force some basic ground rules need to be laid down – and adhered to.

We regard discipline as essential to the success of any anti-fascist venture. Self-discipline and group discipline enable us to get the better of our opponents, both the fash and the filth. We expect people on our actions to be mature enough to be punctual and to temporarily subordinate their autonomy so that together we can achieve our shared objectives.

Punctuality is not merely a courtesy to other people, it is also essential on anti-fascist actions to minimise the dangers of being spotted or picked off. Too often people turn up when they want for an action, sometimes almost an hour late. This is unacceptable. Being late means exposing those anti-fascists there on time to potential danger, and also risks fucking up the entire operation. Should you be unable – for any reason – to get to a meeting point on time, then don’t bother! Phone them and let them know you’re not coming.

To achieve success, and to minimise the danger of arrests or beatings, we believe that it’s best for someone to co-ordinate an action. This entails keeping an eye on everyone, sending out spotters, getting everyone moving at once – and calling an end to the action when the task’s completed – or if it’s been compromised. We find if we temporarily cede some of our personal autonomy to someone better equipped to ‘run’ the operation on the night, we are more likely to succeed.

A few words about security. Never discuss on the phone something you wouldn’t discuss in the pub: you are going to be overheard. It is not paranoia, but simple acceptance of the fact that every phone conversation you make is either going to be monitored, either by ECHELON, the American National Security Agency, GCHQ Cheltenham – or Special Branch. In any case, phones are not secure and should never be treated as such. Don’t discuss actions on the phone – far too often we’ve seen actions compromised by loose talk on them, when police turn up mob-handed to prevent any chance of an operation being a success. Essentially, use your common sense. Don’t tell people about actions unless they need to know, and don’t brag about them afterwards.

Finally, we advise anyone who’s had too much to drink to go home. Drunk people are far more likely to be arrested or beaten up – and far more likely to get other people nicked or smacked, too. Contrary to popular belief, anti-fascism is not some sort of cosy drinking club. It is a serious pursuit, and one which should be approached with a sober attitude. Apart from the obvious security risk, a drunken anti-fascist is hardly the best example of the movement! No, one has been press-ganged into anti-fascism. If you cannot do the struggle the honour of your service, do not do it the dishonour of a disservice. It is as simple as that.
