Before Election Last Year

Over on facebook, a good friend of mine, who is also a Canadian and a staunch “Supporter of the American Constitution” as well as a “Right Winger” started a discussion on his page.  Over the course of several days there were dozens of comments, many of them were Left Wing trolls attacking him.

At one point I was defending various things, and the following is what I wrote there.  When I was finished, the only comment I received was from some guy saying “You need a girl friend”.  I explained that “I have a wife and she wouldn’t like that”.  His response was “Ask, you might be surprised.”

Is that seriously how Liberals think? It’s ok?  I mean if they can’t attack you with name calling, they try to drag you to their lowest level.

Today, the Right “owns” the White House, the House and Senate.  The Left “owns” the disaster of Barack Obama, and the near destruction of the American Economy.  They can’t come to grips with that, but can continue to call Trump a “racist”, “rapist” and all the other things.  Now that the “memo” is out, how many heads will roll?  Probably none.

Anyway, the following is a copy of the comments I made through the discussion.  It’s historical now.

—————————

Please allow me to educate some of the people here. This is what ” Progressivism” is about. They HATE that America was founded on it’s guiding principles. They HATE the Founding Fathers. They HATE the Constitution. They will use it only to gain benefit while usurping power from the People of the United States. They will use hate, name calling, mis-characterization, projection, dismissal, and denigration to gain their goal, which is the destruction of American Principles and the burning of the US Constitution. Progressives are the ENEMY of Americans, and America. They are NOT our friends. They walk hand-in-hand with Communists, Marxists and Socialists and hide among these people calling themselves “Social Democrats”. This is FACT. Not some of the BS they bandy about to convince others of their “good” to society.

The Progressives were reformers in the late 19th and early 20th century who believed that in order to address modern problems, America needed to abandon the old ideas of the Founding in favor of a new expansive conception of the role of government. Progressives paved the way for modern liberalism and politics, and their core ideas are still the mainstay of today’s liberalism.

Some Progressives were prominent journalists such as Herbert Croly (co-founder of The New Republic), some were distinguished professors such as John Dewey and Woodrow Wilson (president of Princeton before he was President of the U.S.), and many were political leaders such as Theodore Roosevelt and Robert La Follette. Progressives could be found in both political parties: Wilson was a Democrat, Roosevelt was a Republican.

The Progressives were united in their contempt for what they called the “individualism” of the Founding. Instead of a government that protects natural rights through limited, decentralized powers, they envisioned an expansive government, a “living” and evolving Constitution, and the rule of “experts” in nationally centralized administrative agencies.

Whereas the Founders believed the government had a well-defined and limited role to play in the lives of citizens—essentially leaving people alone to lead their lives—the Progressives favored a much more active role for the government in overseeing civil society, regulating the economy, and redistributing wealth.

These two fundamentally different understandings of the role of government grow out of two different understandings of freedom. For the Progressives, freedom is not secured when government protects natural rights and otherwise leaves citizens to rule themselves. True freedom, by this view, demands an active government that provides equal means to self-fulfillment for all. It is not enough to create the conditions that allow people to pursue their own happiness—equal opportunity—since some citizens start with more advantages than others. Government must set out to level the playing field and determine outcomes.

To ensure that all citizens possess all they need to attain happiness, government must create an environment in which all possess the same advantages, despite the fact that this requires government to interfere with the very natural rights the Founders sought to secure. Government must redistribute wealth and grant benefits in order to ensure that everyone has equal means to pursue happiness, and must provide economic and social resources to develop the social character of citizens.

This is why LIBERALS are also the enemy today: Liberalism can be understood in two very different ways. Liberalism, or what some call “classical liberalism,” is a political philosophy based on individual liberty and limited government. Over the last century, however, liberalism has come to take on a different meaning. The contemporary understanding of liberalism is based not on individual liberty, but on the use of government to grant benefits and advantages in order to give everyone the ability to achieve a certain standard of living and reduce inequalities. Therefore, modern liberalism encourages an extensive network of interest groups that receive benefits from government and organize in order to preserve those benefits.

Modern liberalism grows out of the Progressive rejection of American constitutionalism and an embrace of a new conception of freedom, anchored in big government. There are however certain significant differences between Progressivism and modern liberalism.

Whereas modern liberalism exalts freedom of self-expression, especially sexual liberation, most Progressives embraced traditional morals. Liberals are also obsessed with equality of outcomes in ways that the Progressives were not. Today, liberalism has lost the faith in progress that characterized Progressivism, mostly because of a loss of confidence in the inevitability of progress and the creeping effects of having embraced relativism from the start of the Progressive movement.

The administrative state is the conglomeration of federal administrative agencies—whether executive agencies, executive departments, or independent regulatory commissions—that have become a “fourth branch” of government. Power has in effect been transferred from the representative, constitutional institutions—Congress, the President, and the courts—to administrative agencies and bureaucrats.

The administrative state is the conglomeration of federal administrative agencies—whether executive agencies, executive departments, or independent regulatory commissions—that have become a “fourth branch” of government. Power has in effect been transferred from the representative, constitutional institutions—Congress, the President, and the courts—to administrative agencies and bureaucrats.

Although our civics textbooks still describe a government where Congress makes laws, the President executes laws, and courts adjudicate disputes, this is not the way our government actually works. Today, bureaucrats make law, execute law, and adjudicate. Although the laws made by agencies are called rules, they carry the force of law.

The administrative state is inconsistent with the U.S. Constitution. Article I, section 1 of the Constitution states that all legislative powers shall be vested in Congress, yet Congress has transferred its powers to these agencies.

Furthermore, the Constitution clearly requires the separation of powers, yet powers are combined in administrative agencies. Finally, many agency personnel are un-elected and unaccountable, despite the republican principles on which the Constitution is based.

There are lots of people out there who think Barack Obama was a great president. OK, fine. Whatever. Answer me this though…

We have money for the following:

Syrian and Middle Eastern unvetted ‘refugees’
Illegal Immigrants
Vacations for the President

We do NOT have money for:
Military Pay Raises
Military equipment that is needed just to SUSTAIN the force
Veterans Medical Care
Veterans Retirement

The Marine Corps is the most relied on Military Force outside of US Special Operations Command. They are the most overused forces of the most overused Military in the WORLD.

So, please explain something to me:

How do we have funds for illegals and potentional Terrorists, but not to upgrade the Marine Corps from Vietnam Era helicopters to the SAME MODERN helicopters THE REST OF THE MILITARY IS USING?

How do we have funds for endless Obamas’ vacations, but we cant find enough $$$$$$ for parts to keep more than 1/3 of Marine Corps Fighter Jets DEPLOYED TO WARZONES flying?????

We have money for Social Justice Crap, But we Have VETERANS BEING LEFT TO DIE BY THE VA, and NO ONE at the VA being held accountable?????

It’s time to Make America Great Again.

Your American Identity

Over the past few decades, the Left has worked diligently to steal your identity from you. Not your name, or credit card numbers, but the absolutism of who “You” are.  If you’re white, a male, around 40 or older, working for a living and taking care of your family, or your older now, like myself and “white, retired, and OLD” by their standards, the Left labels you as a danger to society.

If you are Black you’re being oppressed – by “White people”.

If you’re an illegal alien, you’re an – “Undocumented immigrant”.

If you’re Muslim – you’re being racially discriminated against by “white people”.

If you own a gun – you’re evil.

If you support the 2nd Amendment – you MUST be part of the NRA. (No, I’m not.)

If you’re “white” – then you are probably a KKK member, a White Supremacist, or some other such thing. (even if you’re not)

And on and on.

A box. You’ve been placed into a box by the Left.  You are routinely called “Racist” or “Homophobe” or perhaps you’re called “Privileged” or some other names. This is to disconnect you from reality, who you are, and that for which you stand and believe.

The Left has this ability to put a label on someone to disconnect them from reality, and then use it collectively in a disproportionate manner, thereby disconnecting people from their own, true selves.

The Left dehumanize people to attack them, and make the attacks easier by the collective mob mentality they use. A new name (yes, they call you a name), to target you, then the others of their kind glom onto the name and they use it too.  That’s how the left functions.

The Left have sharpened this “weapon” of their’s over the years since the 60s. NOW, they use it to divide Americans.

You can see it in Facebook, Twitter and Gab. The folks who are “Nazi” and KKK types are all over the place… and the rest of us normal people are caught in the middle trying to redefine ourselves as “NOT being THEM”.

Just because you’re white does not make you a racist.  But the Left uses this tactic to make you think you are, and make others assume you are..  The Left is teaching this to your children and attempting to shame them and be ashamed of themselves because, well, you know, “White Privilege”.

Redefining a generation of Children to believe things differently from the way their parents believed is a stock trademark of the Left, and of Communism and Marxism.

Marxist tell you they aren’t Communists.  Communists hate Marxists. Supposedly.

The Left claims not to be Marxist, and yet look at the dumb asses walking about with Che Guverra Tee Shits on their bodies.  He’s a hero to these morons.

This author believes that 90% of everyone, right, left, middle, black, white – doesn’t matter – of Americans (Real Americans who understand what being American means) are none of these things above.  We don’t fit in boxes, pigeon holes, cupboards or waste bins.

We are Individuals.  We want SMALLER Government, less money taken from us, efficiency, Freedom to do as we like as long as what we are doing isn’t hurting others.  We believe in Individual Freedom and do NOT want Socialized medicine, shopping or funding such programs.  We want others to to be happy, and free as well.

We think criminals should be locked up, and dangerous people who’ve committed crimes like Murder locked up for good, or executed.  We do not believe that the Government should be able to deprive you of Life, Liberty and Happiness on a whim, in other words, LaVoy Finicum was murdered and his family deprived of a good man by a corrupt government.  (FBI, DOJ, Clinton Foundation, Uranium)

Chris Stevens was also deprived of his life, by corruption in our government, and no one has been held accountable yet. (Clinton)

The IRS targeted Christians and Right Winger through the use of “taxes” and let other groups go by default.  No one has been held accountable for that either. (Lois Lerner)

Those are a few small things the Obama Administration wrought.

The Left STRIVES to keep your minds off those things and mis-identification of your self is how they do it.  So, the time to stop letting them change your life, your name, your identity is now.  Focus on the real causes of Cancer in our Society.  Focus on the Left and fight back.

While I know most of you want to be “above it all” and “won’t lower yourselves to their tactics” (and this is very noble) we’re in a war here.  A war for our Identity in America.  You must start fighting back using their own tactics and stratagems.  No longer can you sit on your ass and let them win over your children’s minds.  Do not let them have the upper hand any longer.

Trump gave up a life of leisure, and his power to become President, to Represent YOU.

Don’t let him fail, and don’t fail to stop the Left at every turn.

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!

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

Killers for Bernie

https://www.teaparty.org/killers-bernie-dont-want-see-245238/

Seriously, why are people on the Left suddenly batcrap-crazy?  Oh, right, it’s not “suddenly”.

They have been stupid since Sanders lost the nomination.

They were already crazy with “Socialism”… because, and I kid you not, I have heard them say things like “Socialism? Yeah, that’s about being Social”.  Yes, some of them believe Socialism is “Being Social” and “Helping people get money” (from the Rich, apparently).

Actually, truth be told, only a very small percentage of Millennials even have a clue what Socialism actually is, and many of them simply like the term.  They don’t understand that it’s a form of Government that requires all business and production to be RUN by the government.  Nope.  Not. At. All.  (http://www.nationalreview.com/article/435326/bernie-sanders-millennials-socialism-what-exactly)

Now… here’s an even deeper conundrum… How many know what Bernie Sanders truly stands for?  A “Democratic Socialist”?

HitlerSocialist

A favorite tactic employed by leftists is to describe the Nazis as “right wing,” with Adolf Hitler, their leader, as the grand leader of this “right wing” movement. Rewriting history is pretty common for leftists, as their history is littered with injustice (the KKK was founded by Democrats, did you know?). Injustices they claim to fight against today. Awkward. (https://www.louderwithcrowder.com/myth-busted-actually-yes-hitler-was-a-socialist-liberal/)

Truth is, Hitler was a Social Democrat, technically a “Liberal”.  Liberalism in America is a tiny bit different that it was then, but not significantly so.  How does any of this connect to the title, “Killers for Bernie”?

Easy, the man who shot Congressman Steve Scalise was a Bernie operative, a marxist, with a gun, and with a list of targets for assassination.

The REAL Fascists in this country are the AntiFa people, Bernie Sanders Supporters and the unhinged Hilary Clinton supporters.

NAZI stands for National Socialist German Workers‘ Party. Associate it with Leftists, Marxists, Unions, Thugs, BLM, Soros, Clinton and Obama.  While there aren’t really any Germans involved in the US, there are all those others….and remember this, watch your backs.

72 DHS Employees on Terrorist Watch List

Well, I have a question.  Actually, several questions.

Why are they on the watch list?

If they are on the watch list, why?

If they are on the watch list, why are they working for the DHS?

If they are on the watch list, do they have clearances?  If so, why?

If they are terrorists, connected to terrorism, are Muslim then why haven’t they 1) been fired, 2) had clearances revoked, 3) Named, 4) deported?

If they are Americans, what form of due process was used to place them on a no-fly list?

If they are actually adjudicated then why can they buy guns?

You see, it takes a few questions to get to the meat of the matter but apparently no one is asking questions, are they?  Especially not this President.

At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security are listed on the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to a Democratic lawmaker.

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also “were on the terrorist watch list.”

“Back in August, we did an investigation—the inspector general did—of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security,” Lynch told Boston Public Radio.

“The [former DHS] director had to resign because of that,” he said.

DHS continues to fail inspections aimed at determining the efficiency of its internal safety mechanisms, as well as its efforts to protect the nation.

Lynch referred to a recent report that found the Transportation Security Administration, which is overseen by DHS, failed to stop 95 percent of those who attempted to bring restricted items past airport security.

“We had staffers go into eight different airports to test the department of homeland security screening process at major airports. They had a 95 percent failure rate,” Lynch said. “We had folks—this was a testing exercise, so we had folks going in there with guns on their ankles, and other weapons on their persons, and there was a 95 percent failure rate.”

Lynch said he has “very low confidence” in DHS based on its many failures over the years. For this reason, he voted in favor of recent legislation that will tighten the vetting process for any Syrian refugees applying for asylum in the United States.

“I have very low confidence based on empirical data that we’ve got on the Department of Homeland Security. I think we desperately need another set of eyeballs looking at the vetting process,” he said. “That’s vetting that’s being done at major airports where we have a stationary person coming through a facility, and we’re failing 95 percent of the time.”

“I have even lower confidence that they can conduct the vetting process in places like Jordan, or Belize or on the Syrian border, or in Cairo, or Beirut in any better fashion, especially given the huge volume of applicants we’ve had seeking refugee status,” Lynch said.

 

Why there is a problem with gun laws

Why do you need to own an ugly black rifle capable of shooting 2-4 rounds per second with the mere pull of a trigger?

Why do you need to be able to buy a thousand rounds?

Why do you NEED high capacity magazines?

I have a better question.  Why do you ask?

Seriously though, when I am asked these questions, sometimes it is difficult getting through to the people who ask.  They are asking the questions rhetorically and do not require, nor even WISH you give an answer.  In fact, they want you to splutter and hem and haw, and feel threatened and guilty.

Why are there gun control laws to begin with?  Why are there people on a no-fly list who can purchase guns?  Why are there people who should be in mental institutions who can purchase weapons?

These are the better questions.

The BEST question though is. if  criminal commits a crime using a gun, say, murder, why isn’t he adjudicated as a murderer and executed? Why aren’t people who are mentally defective put in mental institutions?

So many questions, so few answers, right?

Wrong.

Let’s look at the last questions first.

Because people believe that folks who are mentally deranged shouldn’t be placed in institutions.  Do-gooders for the past hundred years have fought to remove people from mental institutions and indeed, shut down such places.  The same people fought to have “privacy” added to medical records.

Now they wish to reverse this trend.  They would love to know if everyone out there is considered “sane” or not… but it’s not their business any more.

Then, they would like to ask you questions at the doctors office (and I have experienced this personally, so this isn’t some vacuous statement) about your ownership of guns; or whether you have “recently felt like harming yourself or others”.

Let me address the title; no-fly lists.  How does one even get ON a no-fly list?  And why are they on it?  Because they might blow up a plane with a 4 ounce bottle of shampoo?  Or because you spoke out against the US government because you’re dissatisfied with their work ethic?

Both, actually.  If you are a terrorist, you might wish to blow up a plane and perhaps you’ve made it clear, because, for instance you MIGHT belong to Islam.  Islam has made it abundantly clear they wish to kill Americans (and Jews, and Europeans, and Whites, Blacks, Asians, whomever, and wish to do so with impunity… because you’re an INFIDEL).  And you might have made a statement against the US government for their over-reaching, heavy-handed nonsense and you’re questioning their ability to be useful any more.

And with good reason.  You’re an American Citizen questioning the government, because YOU are a watchdog.  YOU are supposed to question the country’s leaders as a dutiful citizen.  Making sure they are doing their job, and doing it for the benefit of the people, and not themselves.

If you’re a terrorist you should BE on a no-fly list, in particular to prevent further training as a terrorist, and secondarily to that to prevent you from blowing up the damned plane.  You should NOT be able to purchase a gun.

If you’re a citizen questioning your government, you should NOT be a no-fly list, no matter which politician, party or group is running the White House this week.  In fact, you should not be on that list, you should NOT be questioned about your questioning, and you SHOULD be allowed to purchase a gun.

Or ten of them.  Or a hundred.

You should not be considered a threat, mentally defective, you should not be considered a person of interest and should be left the hell alone.

In the United States you have a right to your opinion, to express it, Freedom of Speech, Assembly, and to cross state lines and come and go as you please.  No one should be bothering you.

The second you actually commit a crime of course, that all goes out the window.

Now – I’m not going to answer all the above questions.  But I’m going to explain this, carefully for the slow readers out there….

If you are not a criminal (and that includes people who have committed non-capital offenses in the past and have served their time) should not be denied their rights.  They should not be placed on watch lists.  They should not be denied guns, freedom of speech, travel or assembly.

The Progressives in this country (Read: Liberals/Marxists/Communists/Libtards/Democrats and morons) are using words to push their agenda.  They want to be able to place ANYONE on a no-fly, watch list and thereby prevent them from buying, holding, using, storing or otherwise have rights to guns.

In other words, the idea of background checks is to see if someone doesn’t meet a certain criteria;  that criteria will be decided by whome EVER is in charge of the current government, be it GOP, Democrats, Obama, Leftist, Rightist, Libertarian, Marixist, Commie, Pinko or whatever….

Therein lies the problem.

Everyone wants to TRUST the government and it’s time to distrust them with all your hearts.

Our government is supposed to be by the people and for the people; not for themselves, not for profit, not to control us, not to have power.

Do not trust a politician who says they will “ban guns”.  Or implement regulations to “check backgrounds” because quite honestly, who is going to watch the watchers?????

You see, we already have several thousand gun laws on the books, federal, state, local, wish lists and made up stuff that some local “authority” can invoke at their whim.  Those rules, laws, city regulations, county statutes are all there for one thing.  To prevent you and me from having a normal, healthy, happy life pursuing whatever business we like, go where we wish and drink the beer we like.

You see my friends gun control isn’t about guns.

It’s about control.

No-fly lists are great if you’re preventing terrorists.  Not so good if you’re preventing granny or grandpa from boarding a plane to go home for Christmas.  Or stopping Joe Blow because he happens to have expressed dissatisfaction with a government policy of allowing in random illegal immigrants (who didn’t go through normal regulations and procedures to get into the country).

Our country is under siege.  Siege from illegals, from terrorists, from people who want to “change” our country to something it is not, and was never intended to be.

We are here to prevent the latter, more than anything.  And we will do so.

No more gun laws will be enacted.

No more “refugees” will be let in, or they will be run out.

NO more Obamas in office.  No more Clintons in office.  They had their day. And have ruined our country.

If you don’t like guns, by God move someplace where guns are already illegal.  If you don’t like the idea this is a Capitalist country, move to a Communist country.  I was here first, and my country was the way it was before you tried to screw it up.  If you don’t like the fact you can’t get some rich guys money split up amongst all your homies… then homie, move the fuck out of my country and leave the guys alone that have the money.

Those guys create jobs.  Or maybe you should just get a job?

The greatest problem with gun control is that anyone can be placed on a list, adjudicated as mentally defective and prevented from exercising their rights.
