Tattoos are Good Because They’re Bad

A recent offering from the Federalist makes plain why Conservatism(tm) is an entirely spineless… philosophy? Fraud, perhaps. But we aren’t even discussing politics today.

We’re discussing tattoos. The Federalist’s Mark Hemingway isn’t just a talking head, he’s their book editor and a “senior writer” at the Weekly Standard. Clearly, he must be a skilled communicator? Let’s find out.

For a variety of personal and professional reasons, I did an epic amount of travel in the last year, across thousands of miles and several states, and there was one cultural constant: Everywhere I went were lots of people with tattoos.

Yep, tattoos are everywhere now. Not news. They’re known to be unhealthy indicators of impulsive behavior. Also not news. Why are men getting tattoos? Because chicks dig tats and men can’t get sex the old-fashioned way of being a responsible, undamaged, boring male human. Hemingway tries to touch this fact with a ten-foot pole:

If tattoos ever had a singular redeeming quality, the fact they are now inescapable has robbed them of it. Before everyone had one, seeing one was at least exciting. And you had good reason to surmise there was a story behind it. Maybe your uncle’s career as a salesman at IBM didn’t exactly scream international man of mystery, but when he wore the wifebeater at family cookouts you just knew that guy had some tales to tell about what happened on shore leave.

Of course, tattoos were also seen as exciting in more, um, stimulating ways? I think it was Halloween of .97 when a sorority girl in a non-regulation Catholic school uniform leapt up on a table at Rennie’s Landing to show us her tattoo. She was what today’s brosephs would refer to as a .smokeshow,. but alas, this act of youthful abandon was not for my benefit.

While I’d like to claim that the force in the universe responsible for equitably distributing female attention is, to recontextualize Tennessee Williams, a hideous b-tch goddess, the truth is that life’s not fair. My buddy Gordon, sitting next to me, is good-looking enough to have been a male model. However, Gordon was halfway inside a bottle of Wild Turkey and, handsome S.O.B. that he was, so inured to hot girls throwing themselves at him that he left my male gaze unchallenged for the big reveal.

He comes soooo close to acknowledging most men get tatted to draw female interest but then pulls back with:

Now, of course, it bears mentioning that as forty year-old man with daughters, the symbolism involved here makes me more than a bit uncomfortable. If you’re really looking to round out the Freudian implications of this little Halloween tableaux, it helps to know that, aside from her being dressed as a schoolgirl, I was wearing zombie make-up. And besides, finding out she had a small heart tattooed on her pelvic bone just below her waistline seems more than a little anti-climactic.

Why the pre-apology? You’re so busy claiming to not have been excited by the whore dropping her panties for the guy sitting next to you that you can’t come out and say that this sexy hanky panky is the reason for modern tatting in an article about modern tatting. Make you point, Cuckservative. Stop with the navel-gazing.

[Several extraneous paragraphs skipped]

“Now I realize that inveighing against tattoos in twenty-first-century America is the Little Big Horn of the culture wars, not in the least because so many of you reading this have tattoos and are probably annoyed by this cranky string of get-off-my-lawnisms. I understand people get tattoos for deeply personal reasons. Not all of those reasons are bad or merit the judgment of others.”

Dude, we already know what your opinion is about tats. Your article is titled “We All Need To Admit That America Has A Tattoo Problem”. Why are you backpedaling? Are you afraid to stand up for your beliefs? Are you afraid that somebody, somewhere, might have a point while disagreeing with you?

This speech pattern is damning. Today it’s something minor like tattoos, tomorrow it’s something major. “America gets too many abortions. Now, I know there are many legitimate reasons some people seek an abortion and you must believe I’m a cranky old fart because I’m still beating this dead horse but I personally don’t believe we need as many abortion clinics as we have. Vote for me because I’m pro-life and here’s my lunch money as an apology to those I’ve accidentally offended.”

Think I’m joking? Keep reading:

“But I still stand by my general assertion that Americans have too many tattoos, even if I understand the impulse to get one. In fact, I think my aversion to tattoos stems, in large part, from the fact I seriously considered getting one. In college, I went through an angsty PoMo literature phase and I thought it would be great to get a tattoo of the muted postal horn symbol from Thomas Pynchon’s inscrutable novel, .The Crying of Lot 49.. … I do, however, think my tattoo desire would have been satiated by getting a Pynchon T-shirt.”

Conviction! I feel it! This is a man who will not compromise his principles!

“Along these lines, I refuse to believe even a sizable percentage of tattoos have been worthy decisions. For some select people, maybe tattoos are small part of their grand plan to live life to the fullest. But the vast majority of people should be encouraged to lead exciting and meaningful lives without needing to, in some cases literally, tattoo their personal vanity and insecurity right on their forehead. Fortunately, for now forehead tattoos still make you a bit of a pariah.after all, even the Air Force still has some standards.”

Why are tattoos bad decisions? Did you cover that? I think you tried when you were talking about your friend getting bar pussy while being so drunk he didn’t notice but I… honestly… can’t… tell. You spoke many words and communicated nothing. Very Cuckian.

This is how a real man speaks: I give my opinion on tattoos:

Tats on women are a sign she is emotionally damaged and overly familiar with foreign objects penetrating her body. Tats on men are a sign he wants sex and is willing to risk his future health to get it.

This is useful knowledge. When I see tats on a chick, my balls know to hide behind my kidneys. When I see tats on a dude, I know he’s overly concerned with chasing tail and am grateful he’s willing to warn me away. Done.

My word count: 83. Zero confusion about where I stand.

His word count: >2,700. Not counting requests for clarification.

Cuckservatism isn’t just about politics. Find your spine and dare to be unpopular, and you’ll never end up as a highly paid pundit.


Circular Logic Is Circular

I read the text of AB2943 so you don’t have to… and noticed right away that the bill begins by justifying itself with statements from organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association. The typical statement says conversion therapy is based upon prejudice against LGBTs, seeks to propagate that prejudice and offers false hope that curing sexual perversion is possible. (That last bit enabling consumer protection laws to be applied. That’s as sensible as a doctor saying “I might be able to cure your cancer but the treatment might hurt and not work, therefore I’m not allowed to treat you”.) But these organization themselves previously believed homosexuality to be abnormal until pressure from LGBT organizations changed their policies.

Translation, the justification for AB2943 is a massive circular logic loop of LGBTs forcing organization to say there’s nothing wrong with being LGBT, therefore it’s okay for LGBTs to force organizations to say there’s nothing wrong with LGBT. I’ll fisk some of the highlights.

(a) Contemporary science recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness

This one’s just a lie but it needs to be exposed. Not listed among the assenting organizations of “contemporary science” is the Center for Disease Control.

“Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) have been rising among gay and bisexual men, with increases in syphilis being seen across the country. In 2014, gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men accounted for 83% of primary and secondary syphilis cases where sex of sex partner was known in the United States. Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men often get other STDs, including chlamydia and gonorrhea infections. HPV (Human papillomavirus), the most common STD in the United States, is also a concern for gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men. … Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men are 17 times more likely to get anal cancer than heterosexual men. Men who are HIV-positive are even more likely than those who do not have HIV to get anal cancer.”

Contemporary science, specifically contemporary social science, assumes the existence of a category called “normal”. LGBT is not what normal humans do–the plug goes in the socket, not the toaster, for 98+% of us. Therefore, LGBT is abnormal. That is a purely scientific statement.

(b) The American Psychological Association convened the Task Force on Appropriate Therapeutic Responses to Sexual Orientation. The task force conducted a systematic review of peer-reviewed journal literature on sexual orientation change efforts and issued a report in 2009. The task force concluded that sexual orientation change efforts can pose critical health risks to [LGBTs]

I found that report.

This quotation from page 54 will suffice for the casual reader: The appropriate application of affirmative psychotherapy is based on the following scientific facts: Same-sex sexual attractions, behavior, and orientations per se are normal and positive variants of human sexuality … There are no empirical studies or peer-reviewed research that support theories attributing same-sex sexual orientation to family dysfunction or trauma

It’s a work of hopelessly biased academic fraud. Given that sodomy is healthy, are efforts to end sodomy healthy?

(d) The American Psychiatric Association published a position statement in March of 2000, stating [among other things]: anecdotal reports of “cures” are counterbalanced by anecdotal claims of psychological harm.

Make up your mind. Are anecdotes trustworthy or not?

(g) The National Association of Social Workers prepared a 1997 policy statement, stating: .Social stigmatization of lesbian, gay and bisexual people is widespread and is a primary motivating factor in leading some people to seek sexual orientation changes. Sexual orientation conversion therapies assume that homosexual orientation is both pathological and freely chosen. No data demonstrates that reparative or conversion therapies are effective, and, in fact, they may be harmful..

If homosexual orientation is freely chosen then there would be no market for conversion therapy. But there is, proving that homosexuals themselves believe it is not freely chosen, so their advocates deny freedom of choice to LGBTs in order to claim LGBTs have no choice.

(i) The American School Counselor Association issued a position statement in 2014, stating: .It is not the role of the professional school counselor to attempt to change a student’s sexual orientation or gender identity. Professional school counselors do not support efforts by licensed mental health professionals to change a student’s sexual orientation or gender as these practices have been proven ineffective and harmful..

We professionals are incompetent at solving the problem, therefore any attempt to solve the problem will be proof of professional incompetence.

(l) The Pan American Health Organization, a regional office of the World Health Organization, issued a statement in May of 2012, stating: .These supposed conversion therapies constitute a violation of the ethical principles of health care and violate human rights that are protected by international and regional agreements.” The organization also noted that reparative therapies “lack medical justification and represent a serious threat to the health and well-being of affected people..

You can trust Big Brother because Big Brother doesn’t trust you. Does a Catch-22 count as circular logic?

(q) California has a compelling interest in protecting the physical and psychological well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals.

That what conversion therapists want, to. California is protecting LGBTs from those who want to protect LGBTs. Does California have a compelling interest in protecting the physical and psychological well-being of back pain sufferers from chiropractors? Scoliosis victims are normal people!

Sacramento’s real compelling interesting is that homosexuals aren’t born. They’re recruited, most often through homosexual child abuse. Conversion therapy is a direct threat to recruitment… to the enduring sexual violation of the innocent.

The reason for AB2943’s very existence is fradulent.

MGTOW Life: Incel Jihad?

Commenter Hmm found an interesting article about the latest mass killing in Toronto. (Sigh, I can’t tell the difference between a terrorist attack and a slut who dropped her smartphone. It’s all driving on the sidewalk.)

Actual article for discussion

“Hours before the Toronto van attack, a post on the Facebook profile of the chief suspect declared that “the incel rebellion has already begun, we will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys..

The message has brought new-found attention to the so-called incel movement, one of the stranger offshoots of the “alt right., and led to calls for the attack to be recognised as an act of far-right terrorism.”

What is ‘incel’? Explaining the cryptic Facebook message allegedly left by Toronto attacker

The post reads in full: .Private (Recruit) Minassian Infantry 00010, wishing to speak to Sgt. 4chan please. C23249161. The Incel Rebellion has already begun! We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys! All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!.

Frankly, it’s a lot of hot air over a special-needs Sperg who, according to Turd Flinging Monkey, once tried suicide by cop with a toy gun. But the pundits are wagging the dog so there are some profitable comments to be made.

First, calling “incel” a movement is like calling irritable bowel syndrome a movement. It’s only true in the absolute most technical sense of the word. Nobody volunteers for involuntary celibacy but if you find yourself there, you can connect with guys having the same problem.

Second, the incel forums don’t offer solutions. MGTOW is a solution. PUA. MRA. Some religions. We’re the people who internalize our incel status in order to gain control over it. They are the people who externalize incel status. Just like the Antifa student activists I sometimes hear howling at the moon, they are people who find power and pleasure in nurturing grievances against society. It doesn’t even matter what the grievance is. Your women won’t hump me! They don’t hire enough blacks! Somebody clubbed a baby seal in Nepal!

Third, it’s cruel to force intelligent men to live without licit sex… but self-destructive to force stupid men to live without sex. A guy who can’t think his way out of his problems is likely to fight his way out instead. Can you be honestly surprised that violence is the result when you back into a corner a man for whom violence is the only clear solution?

Men are breaking under the strain of modern life. The dimmer bulbs like Minassian are the first to pop but it’ll get worse, when highly intelligent yet frustrated atheist men finally accept that the only way they’ll get sex or attention is to take it by force.

It won’t be me. I’m Christian. God has promised to reward me should I endure a sexless life and it’s a comforting thought. Father will repay me for “the years that the moths have eaten”. Atheist men have no such hope & comfort. Great work, you Christ-hating fools. Your own people become your enemies even as you pursue our destruction.

For the incel men reading this, I can tell you as a fellow incel that things will improve. Your body throttles down beginning around age 35. There will come a time when you wouldn’t accept sex if you were offered a perfect 10. There are two tricks to getting here. One, don’t get discouraged. Try to keep clean of immorality like porn—you’ll fail repeatedly, this is normal, just keep trying. And two, do something else. Sex isn’t everything. Nurturing grievances is a common alternative to sex because it engages your emotions almost as strongly… but keep looking. You want a healthy alternative, not a murderous alternative.

At a minimum, go hit rocks with a stick. It feels surprisingly good when you’re in a foul mood.


Book Review: Clone Republic Series

Image result for clone republic

This is a remarkably good military science-fiction series I discovered through random sampling at the bookstores in my area. Humanity is well into the early stages of exploring and colonizing the galaxy thanks to the invention of Broadcast technology–basically stargates. The unified government is still headquartered on Earth and is patterned after the United States Constitution with two exceptions. One, all planet representatives must be native to Earth, creating a ruling class. Two, the military keeping the galaxy under Earth’s control uses cloning. (Much better implemented than Star Wars’ Clone Wars.) Life is stable, prosperous and as things turn out, incredibly fragile.

Not all soldiers are clones. Some are orphans, raised alongside the clones to perpetuate the illusion that clones are real people, too. (Clones are kept loyal by being programmed to die if they realize they’re clones.) The protagonist is one such orphan named Wayson Harris, newly graduated from Marine Corps basic training with top marks and then mysteriously deployed to the ass end of nowhere.

A fairly typical setup. This ain’t Shakespeare. But the genius of the series lies in its execution and believable characters. A minor interplanetary incident quickly snowballs into World War Galaxy. Heroes and villains emerge, the heroes with believable flaws and villains with believable motivations. The goals and behaviors of various factions are relevant to modern events yet kept at a sufficient distance to never take political sides. There are no heavy-handed monologues or political strawmen in the series.

There is a lot of action and the author Steven Kent does an excellent job of using the action to drive the character development, the high-quality opposite of what one normally finds in military sci-fi. The scale runs from Harris coming to terms with not only being a clone, but a model of clone that was discontinued for heinous war crimes, to fat cat politicians who end up fighting a nightmare Nemesis that shares their “winning justifies everything” morality. Add to that shifting alliances, technology employed in space-opera fashion, interesting moral issues and an astronomical bodycount: indeed, it’s almost as if the series ends because there is nobody remaining to die.

Through all the twists and treacheries, the series is kept on track by Harris’ inherent decency. He’s not blind to the fact that he’s often led by criminal scum and struggles with resentment–he attempts to retire at one point–but he’s a Marine and there’s fighting to be done, and ultimately Harris becomes an unlikely savior of humanity.

Most surprisingly, THERE ARE NO FEMALE WARRIOR PRINCESSES IN THE ENTIRE SERIES! Unheard of today. There are only a couple female characters and incredibly, the women behave like women.

The series is actually 10 books long but trust this reviewer and pretend the last three don’t exist. Kent obviously wrapped the series up at #7 and then was offered a bushel of money for three more trips to the well.

The books are easy reads. Only the first one attempts to be philosophical (Plato’s Republic), after which the author wisely gives up and proceeds with the good stuff. But the series isn’t mere war-porn, either, because the characters and plots are simply that memorable. And no kung-fu princesses!


Enemies Of Christ AB2943

The following California Assemblymen and Senators are guilty in the sight of Christ of advocating sexual perversion and interfering with the peaceful practice of Christianity, proven by their authorship of California Assembly Bill 2943.

Images from California State website.

Evan Lowe

In addition to authoring AB2943, on April 5, 2018 The California State Assembly passed Assembly Concurrent Resolution 172 today to apologize for the state’s past discriminatory laws that oppressed and persecuted the LGBT community. ACR 172 is authored by Assemblymember Evan Low (D-Silicon Valley), Chair of the California Legislative LGBT Caucus, and co-authored by all members of the California Legislative LGBT Caucus. ACR 172 is supported by Equality California, the Human Rights Campaign, the ACLU, and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

.California has a long history of enacting legislation that discriminated against LGBT individuals,. said Assemblymember Low. .This will not undo the decades of persecution and oppression that our community has faced, but it is important to recognize these injustices so that we as a state can move forward and lead with love..

Christ Jesus created humanity male and female exclusively. There are only two genders of human and gender is a fact of biology, defined by the pairings of X and Y chromosomes. The followers of Christ call upon these persons to repent of their denial of observable reality and God’s design of humanity, and to repeal existing state legislation that prohibits the voluntary treatment of sexually damaged and sexually confused people.

Assemblyman Lowe is specifically called upon to cease apologizing for California’s history of basing its laws upon Christian morality.

Furthermore, the American followers of Christ demand these persons remember that they are the servants of the general public, not the masters, and that the peaceful practice of Christianity as defined by the Christian Bible and practiced throughout the entire history of the United States of America, shall not be regulated or restricted by any American government.


David French Indicates Boomerism

I’ve been waiting to cover Sacramento’s latest effort to ban Christianity because the real story is not Sacramento. They’ve been banning Christianity for years and the Church has yet to give the first damn about it. Humanity is fortunate if the Church even notices its own persecution. That’s the real story: how the Church will react to what could effectively be a direct ban on Christianity.

The answer thus far: David French.

David French, David French, David French. That guy is quoted more than the law in question (Assembly Bill AB2943). Who is David French? Some guy who talked about it on National Review.

Lots of people are talking about the bill so why is French the bad penny that keeps turning up? Occam’s Razor says the Church is taking its cues from National Review.

This is an established character trait of Baby Boomers. When television was limited to the Big Three networks and newspapers weren’t yet mouthpieces for Reuters and Associated Press, people became loyal to their preferred source of info. (To the point of literally arguing at the television.) But there’s no excuse for such info-loyalty today. Sane people don’t choose who to blindly trust. Willfully ignorant people who don’t want the responsibility of being human do.

I hate to think that the national priorities of every church organization in USA is dictated at least partially by the content of William Buckley’s secular, controlled-opposition National Review. But it does explain a lot.

Me being a lifetime Californian who is not dependent upon others for my beliefs, let me give the straight facts about Sacramento’s shenanigans: the Church here banned the Bible years ago. When I was a kid, people brought Bibles on Sunday. There were five Bibles per pew for those who didn’t. Watch your step or you’ll trip on a Bible.

Today, no Bibles in the pews. No hymnals. Nobody brings their own. It’s all projected on the screen. Why object to the banning of Bibles when your church no longer uses them?

Sacramento banned professionals from helping people heal their sexual damage years ago. The Church didn’t care. Why does it care now that we’re banning amateurs? If they were okay with not trusting professionals then they shouldn’t trust amateurs, either. Answer, they still don’t care. This is just a little theater in case somebody asks an uncomfortable question.

The ultimate fallout, assuming this gets implemented, is that all churches will be pleased to universally adopt the NIV Bible translation, that is, the feminist Not-Inspired Version and continue worshiping Boyfriend Jesus and his inclusively pansexual parent-deity. Because if they choose any differently, they’ll be sharing a prison cell with Bubba the Untreated Homosexual. Or worse, they’ll have to start paying taxes on their income.

Any church that won’t directly involve itself in politics is a church that doesn’t give a damn about what the politicians do.


Deep Stater: John Creamer?

It’s a sign of the Information Age that good answers have become less important than good questions. I had time this weekend to ask the Internet some very pointed questions about current events… and a name came up.

We begin with Commifornia’s non-deployment of National Guard to secure the Southern border.

WASHINGTON . President Donald Trump attacked California on Thursday for doing what he and his administration asked it to do: agreeing to deploy state National Guard members to help the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency.

The president tweeted that California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) had agreed to send the troops to the border with Mexico “to do nothing.” He was referring to Brown’s commitment on Wednesday to dispatch 400 troops, as ordered by Trump, but with the caveat that they would not conduct immigration enforcement or build a wall. Trump said he wouldn’t fund .Brown’s charade.. …

Government officials told reporters in Washington on Monday that the guard members would be helping CBP in ways that don’t involve direct contact with unauthorized immigrants. They will instead be aiding with aerial surveillance, monitoring cameras, operating and maintaining equipment and other administrative tasks, the officials from CBP, the National Guard and the Department of Defense said.

On the surface, this is petty political bickering. But the context is the Honduran Asteroid of Refugees that’s current rolling through Mexico to crash Trump’s border immigration reputation Alinsky-style. Moonbeam is sending Cal-National Guard to the border with orders to, given the opportunity, let them in. This would be an act of treason on the level of opening a castle’s gates during a siege.

So, what’s happening with the Asteroid today?

Irineo Mujica, a caravan coordinator with the transnational humanitarian group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, praised the Honduran’s ambassador’s solidarity walk, saying it gave him a taste of the hardships migrants have faced since leaving Chiapas in southern Mexico, and what thousands of other migrants continue to face.

The annual caravan, which at one point swelled to as many as 1,600 migrants after being flooded with families fleeing from Honduras, was expected to end Thursday, after drawing the ire of President Donald Trump, who in response has ordered National Guard troops deployed to the Southwest border to help stop illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

But Leonard Olsen, organizer with Pueblo Sin Fronteras, told The Arizona Republic via text message that “the caravan continues strong” and on Friday “the plan is to continue our journey north.”

Rivera Montes’ march with the migrants struck some experts as a stunt.

The scene Wednesday in Mexico City appeared disingenuous considering the Honduran government’s lack of response to the economic and political crisis forcing people to flee, said Cecilia Menjivar, a University of Kansas sociology professor and expert on Central American migration.

“This is quite an awkward act on the part of the Honduran government … because the Honduran government is doing nothing to protect the people who have been forced to migrate in this caravan,” she said in an email. “Not only does the Honduran government do nothing, but in many ways, they have been actively engaged in making life impossible for the people who live in Honduras and who have no other choice to survive than to flee that country.

“So it is quite the political theater to accompany the migrants fleeing the country (and the government) that the ambassador represents.” …

The Honduran ambassador to Mexico, dressed in a suit, tie and dress shoes, joined the migrants in a 9-mile walk from the Honduran embassy in the Condesa neighborhood of Mexico City to the Casa de Peregrino near the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mexican news media reported.

Photographs on Mexico’s El Universal website show Rivera Montes walking with Central American migrants, at times carrying a baby in his arms, in what the newspaper described as a “sign of solidarity” between the Honduran government and the migrants traveling in the caravan.

The Honduran ambassador also posed with Central American migrants in front of the Basilica [of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mexico’s most important religious site], according to Excelsior.

Rivera Montes promised to provide Honduran migrants traveling with the caravan humanitarian assistance and to assist them in the process of applying for proof of nationality documents during their journey, according to La Silla Rota.

Gawddamned baby-kissing photo-op politicians are the same everywhere, it seems. But what an interesting notion, that the Honduran gov’t first cruelly drove them out and now is kindly helping them along towards what is shaping up to be a definitive international incident. How did this Honduran Asteroid get started? What did the Deep State do in Honduras to generate 1,200+ refugees on short notice, if this is indeed a DS plot? This turned out to be a good question.

…What changed this year was an explosion of migrants from Honduras, an impoverished country of 9.3 million people where gang violence has made the murder rate one of the highest in the world.

The gang violence has been compounded by a political crisis triggered in the wake of November’s presidential election that many Hondurans believe was stolen by the U.S.-backed president, Juan Orlando Hernandez, who won a razor-thin victory over his main rival, Salvador Nasralla. Several days of violent protests followed.

“I expected (the caravan) to be bigger,” but not this big, said Alex Mensing, an organizer with Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group that has organized annual migrant caravans including this year’s. “The percentage of Hondurans is way higher. It’s been like 75 or 80 percent. … That is way higher than it’s ever been.”

The size of the group caught organizers off-guard, and triggered a negative reaction from the United States far bigger than any the organizers expected, even from a president already well-known for his hard-line stance on immigration and promise to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. …

Days of tweets culminated with Trump’s decision to deploy several thousand National Guard troops to assist the Border Patrol along the southwest border to stop illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

Oh, hell. U.S.-backed presidential election in Honduras is suspected of being fraudulent and thought to have triggered the Migration. That’s the CIA playbook.

ON FRIDAY, THE U.S. congratulated Juan Orlando Hern?ndez on what it said was his re-election as president of Honduras. The U.S. State Department’s congratulations to Hern?ndez came a month into a standoff between the government and the opposition over the vote tally, and five days after the Honduran electoral commission, which is controlled by Hern?ndez-installed allies, declared him the winner.

The State Department message came amid continuing vote-fraud allegations by the opposition, journalists, and foreign observers. The Organization of American States had announced on December 17 that the purported victory was .impossible. to verify, and called for a new, clean election.

Despite the U.S. embassy’s calls earlier this month for a .transparent, impartial. and .credible. vote count, the U.S. has been working behind the scenes for weeks urging the Honduran opposition to shut down protests calling for a full recount or a new election.

Salvador Nasralla, the opposition candidate who held the lead when the public vote count was halted, told me on December 7 that U.S. officials .don’t want there to be any demonstrations. . .ellos no quieren que haya manifestaciones,. he said in Spanish.

Nasralla said that he had been meeting with Deputy Assistant Secretary of State John Creamer as well as with Heide Fulton, the acting U.S. ambassador to Honduras who Nasralla said he had spoken to by phone hours before our interview in Tegucigalpa. Creamer is a former top aide to retired Gen. John Kelly, the influential White House chief of staff who has referred to Hern?ndez as a “great guy” and a “good friend.. (Hern?ndez has responded in kind, calling Kelly a “great friend” and “someone who opens many doors..)

When I asked Nasralla if the U.S. officials wanted him to stop the marches, he replied, .Yes, [they want] that they be stopped, that we calm the people down.. (In Spanish, he said, .S?, que paren. Que tranquilicemos a la gente..)

As we spoke, Honduras was under a state of siege and a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew. The U.S armed-and-trained Honduran armed forces had begun tear-gassing and shooting protestors.

Nasralla told me, .The United States is going to have, in Salvador Nasralla, an ally,. but that, nonetheless, he wouldn’t stop the marches . and probably couldn.t, even if he wanted to. .What I in my personal capacity as a comfortable person may be asking for, that is one thing,. he told me. “But another is what the mass of 6 million poor people want, and that is something I can not impede . that the people will go to the streets..

Nasralla.s account of meeting Creamer and Fulton was confirmed by U.S. officials in Washington who were briefed on the conversations.

When I asked Creamer if he or other U.S. officials had urged Nasralla to stop the demonstrations, he referred me to the State Department’s public relations office, which referred me back to Creamer’s office. Creamer’s staff replied that Creamer was not available for an interview. Fulton, reached on her cell phone, declined to comment.

We have a name. John Creamer. Let’s keep digging…

That could be a stereotype for a Deep Stater biography. Career bureaucrat/diplomat/lawyer from famous gov’t-preparatory university (what’s with the Jesuits these days?) to military-industrial complex ties to senior-level political connections.

http://mx usembassy gov/deputy-assistant-secretary-creamer-visits-mexico-underscores-vitality-relationship/

Mexico City, August 4, 2016 . John Creamer, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Mexico and Western Hemisphere Regional Economic Policy and Summit Issues, visited Mexico August 2-4 to underscore the importance of the bilateral relationship and promote a broad range of areas of cooperation. Creamer met with high-level government officials, representatives from the private sector, academia, legislative, press, and civil society organizations to discuss bilateral cooperation in human rights, security, and economic development.

Appointed to his position in March, this is Creamer’s first trip to Mexico since assuming this role. During the trip, Creamer met with government officials from the Foreign Ministry, the Secretariat of Energy, the Attorney General’s Office, and the National Migration Institute. Creamer also participated in a roundtable with the business sector.

.Mexico is one of our most important bilateral relationships. Mexico is our neighbor, our friend, our partner, and our family,. said Deputy Assistant Secretary Creamer. .I was very pleased to meet with government officials, civil society leaders, activists and the business sector to continue advancing many issues of paramount importance for both of us, including economic opportunity, security, immigration, human rights, and the fight against corruption. We have much to share and the right mechanisms for sharing it..

So, Deputy SecState Creamer meets with Mexican civil rights leaders concerning immigration, security & human rights in August… turns up affiliated with what stinks like a CIA-backed coup in Honduras in November… this in February:

[NOTE: Google-translated from original Spanish]

Assistant Deputy Assistant Secretary of Western Hemisphere Affairs, John Creamer, meeting with President Juan Orlando Hern?ndez declared his country’s support “in the fight against organized crime, violence, also gang 13 and neighborhood 18.”

The high official of the State Department described as “impressive what Honduras has achieved in reducing the homicide rates.”

“At the same time, we talked about the need to continue supporting the Public Prosecutor’s Office, the MACCIH and the fight against corruption.”

“There is a need to launch a national dialogue, to meet the demands expressed in the elections last November. We encourage Hondurans to participate and thus implement electoral reforms. “

“On Human Rights, the US will continue to help Honduras on that issue.”

“It was a very productive and important meeting,” he added.

Creamer also expressed support for a “broad, credible and transparent national dialogue” with the support of the international community.

“We talked about various issues, security, DD HH, justice, economy and culture.”

“The US will continue to support Honduras in its fight against organized crime, the fight against corruption and impunity.”

…and the Honduran Asteroid ‘just happened to occur’ in March.

There is circumstantial evidence, which is neither proof nor an accusation, that John Creamer could be a ranking member of the Deep State and currently orchestrating a campaign to destabilize and discredit the sitting President of the United States.


ACLU Is Governor Moonbeam’s Attack Dog

The Empire of California Strikes Back against the rebels opposing its reign of white genocide:

The American Civil Liberties Union sued the city of Los Alamitos on Wednesday, alleging its move this week to exempt itself from California’s sanctuary laws violates the state constitution and wastes taxpayer money.

The lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court comes two days after the Los Alamitos City Council approved a precedent-setting ordinance that exempts its police department from following the California Values Act, which limits police cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

While several Orange County cities and the Board of Supervisors have voted to challenge the state’s sanctuary laws, Los Alamitos is the only city to pass an official ordinance.

In a news conference outside of Los Alamitos City Hall, ACLU lawyer Sameer Ahmed said the city can’t simply decide to exempt itself from laws.

.The Los Alamitos City Council cannot pick and choose which state laws it will and will not follow,. he said.

City officials said they passed the ordinance because the state laws conflict with federal laws.

But in its lawsuit, the ACLU says “California law does not allow local officials to unilaterally declare a state law unconstitutional and decline to follow it on that basis..

Plaintiffs in the lawsuit include Rev. Samuel Pullen of the Community Congregational United Church of Christ of Los Alamitos and members of the group Los Alamitos Community United.

Los Alamitos Mayor Troy Edgar said Wednesday that he had anticipated the lawsuit and will be estimating legal costs, though he said he believes the legal expenses are “worth it..

.My mind hasn’t changed,. he said. .The state has overstepped its boundary on this very important constitutional issue..

Los Alamitos pays outside counsel, Costa Mesa firm Woodruff, Spradlin & Smart, $225 per hour.

To help with legal expenses, Edgar created a GoFundMe page that has so far raised more than $11,000 . with a goal of $100,000.

The mayor said he has received contributions from both inside and outside the city.

The fundraising effort raised criticism from Councilman Mark Chirco, the lone opposing vote on the ordinance.

.I don’t think government by GoFundMe is a responsible government,. he said, in the Monday night meeting.

The American taxpayers are fed up with being ordered about and their lives controlled by statist drones with names like SAMEER AHMED. Go home, Ahmed. You are not a citizen if you think the American people are not allowed to dissent and organize against tyrants.

Edgar can stay. He’s doing a GoFundMe campaign instead of raising taxes or debt-spending? I like his style. Maybe it’s time for me to start tithing again.

Oh, hey, did you catch that? The ACLU is suing a government for wasting taxpayer money.




Utopianism In One Paragraph

A comment I prepared elsewhere that took on a life of its own.

This is the fire in which we burn: Humans are self-perfectible. The only things holding us back are some inefficient and hurtful habits. Once the brave new set of habits are adopted, everybody will be perfect and happy. But some people don’t want to adopt the new habits. We need a strong authoritarian power to force good habits upon those holdouts. Any failure in this plan is proof that we didn’t get rid of the holdouts fast enough because we personally have already been perfected, so the failure could not possibly have been our fault in any way.

Behold the Hegelian triple synthesis of arrogance, blindness and Daddy Issues.


San Diego County Supports Trump! 3-1

The freight train of sanity is rolling on the tracks with a much-belated load of common sense. The anti-American San Diego Union Tribune reports:

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 3-1 Tuesday to support the Trump administration’s lawsuit against California over so-called sanctuary laws that the state passed last year to limit its role in immigration enforcement.

Wow, butthurt dishonesty right off the first paragraph. Sacramento is OUTLAWING immigration enforcement for ALL governments, corporations and private citizens in California.

The county will file an amicus brief at the first available opportunity, likely if and when the case moves to a higher court on appeal, said Supervisor Kristin Gaspar, chairwoman of the board.

The board voted in closed session after 45 minutes of public comment in which most speakers in the packed chambers urged the supervisors to vote against supporting the lawsuit.

Margaret Baker, who lives near the border, told the board that backing the lawsuit will discourage immigrants from reporting crime.

David Garcias, president of the San Diego chapter of the union that represents county government employees, told the supervisors, .I believe you’re on the wrong side of history. This will affect your legacy..

The first people to speak in the article are social justice warriors who refuse to acknowledge the crime of tresspass. Illegal immigrants don’t want to report crimes they know about in fear they’ll be punished for the crime they committed? Yeah, kid, connect those dots.

The three supervisors who voted to support the lawsuit said it was about public safety.

.We’re talking about people who are crossing the border illegally, coming into this county and committing a crime and them being let loose probably to commit another crime,. said Dianne Jacob, supervisor for the district that covers East County. .That creates a public-safety issue and creates a problem in our neighborhoods..

She worried about terrorists crossing the border illegally, she said.

.This is a different day than it was 20, 30, 40 years ago,. Jacob said. .That’s why it was important for us to stand up, as controversial as it was..

Gaspar said San Diego was safer before the new laws, specifically Senate Bill 54, went into effect. SB 54 limits the ways in which local law enforcement officers can interact with federal immigration officials.

.The status quo was safer in San Diego,. she said, adding that now immigration officers make more arrests out in the community because they can’t make those arrests at jails. .The best place for ICE to be is in the jail and not out in the community..

During the announcement of the vote, Gaspar showed printouts of emails she received from each side of the debate. The stack of emails criticizing her for considering support for the lawsuit was not much thicker than a legal pad. The stack of emails asking her to support the Trump administration’s legal challenge was more than a foot tall.

Gaspar, Jacob and Supervisor Bill Horn, who represents the northernmost part of the county, voted to support the lawsuit. Supervisor Greg Cox, whose district covers the South Bay, voted against it. Supervisor Ron Roberts, who represents central San Diego, was traveling abroad and did not attend the meeting.

Cox said immigration issues need to be solved in Washington.

Cox is right, actually–border control is unquestionably a Federal responsibility–but it’s an act of treason to intentionally interfere with Federal efforts. Greg Cox is a traitor to the United States for trying to shelter foreign criminals within U.S. borders.

.The board’s vote is a largely symbolic move that will create fear and divisiveness in our region…

The Third-World-immigrants-at-all-costs politician thinks creating division in society is a bad thing? And if it’s only symbolic then why do you care? Because it creates fear and division, you say? Then it’s not symbolic. Classic Gamma doublespeak. “You’re a powerless nobody who should shut up because you influence people!”

..waste taxpayer funds…

Immigration enforcement is something that only government can do effectively. It is why we pay taxes in the first place.

..and create distrust of law enforcement and local government within many communities,. Cox said.

Suck a dick, Cox. You want a nightmare scenario: an illegal immigrant going to law enforcement with confidence to seek protection from legitimate residents of the country.

The Department of Justice filed the lawsuit against California at the beginning of March over three laws.

Mr. Trump, you’re killing me. Stop working within the system created by the Deep State for the Deep State’s protection. Start giving your enemies perp walks in handcuffs to military custody in Gitmo.

SB 54, the law that received the most publicity when it passed, allows officers to turn unauthorized immigrants over to federal immigration enforcement agencies only if they have committed crimes listed in the legislation. It says local police cannot participate in task forces that are focused on immigration enforcement.

It also requires the California attorney general to set policies limiting assistance with immigration enforcement at public schools, libraries and hospitals.

Like I said at the beginning: Sacramento is outlawing cooperation with Federal law enforcement even for private citizens.

Assembly Bill 103 prohibits local governments across California from adding new contracts with the federal government for civil immigration detention or expanding old ones. It also requires the California Attorney General’s Office to monitor conditions in existing immigration detention facilities in the state.

Obstruction of justice, anybody? Bueller?

AB 450 prohibits employers from voluntarily allowing immigration officials into non-public areas of the workplace unless the officers have judicial warrants. It also requires employers to notify employees about upcoming immigration inspections.

Treason, anybody? “ICE is coming! ICE is coming! Hide the criminals! I’ll stall them by demanding paperwork!”

Several critics of the lawsuit cited a January 2017 study by UC San Diego professor Tom Wong, published by the Center for American Progress, that found crime rates are higher in non-sanctuary counties. (Asked about the study, Gaspar declined to comment, saying she hadn’t seen it.)

It’s true. “Our crime rate dropped the instant we decided illegal immigration is no longer a crime!”

About a dozen people who spoke in support of the lawsuit told supervisors that the sanctuary laws were an overreach of state power and were concerned that they would inhibit the federal government from deporting people with criminal convictions.

Stella May told the board that “the laws act to protect criminal illegals..

She used the example of Kate Steinle, a case often cited by President Donald Trump and his supporters in arguing for tougher immigration restrictions. Steinle, 32, was fatally shot by a man who had been released from a San Francisco jail a few months earlier and had several previous deportations.

I don’t like how opposition to illegal immigration relies heavily on “they might commit other crimes, too”. It reeks of female morality (seek safety) when it should be masculine (seek justice and impartiality). Eh, it’s getting the job done. For now.

Cyrus Hojjaty, a 25-year-old Las Vegas resident whose family is from Iran, said that California’s policies were “embarrassing” and “disgusting.” He said his parents “did it the right way..

He worried that his state’s border with California would mean those policies have an effect where he lives.

.You go to Europe, they’re being flooded with non-whites,. he said.

Even the Iranians see the problem. Why can’t whites?

.This proposal is only about fear and hatred,. Neal Jos? Wilkinson, a priest at a Barrio Logan church, told the crowd outside the building. .We need law enforcement to protect all of our people, regardless of immigration status. If they’re not protecting all of us, they’re not protecting any of us..

The Catholic Church is a major driver of illegal immigration into California. I’m informed this is not a Vatican-endorsed priority… but it is endorsed by the U.S. Council of Bishops.

I don’t think much of people who believe Ortho/Catholic denominations are the good guys. We all have dirty laundry these days. The ability to hide it is a negative, not a positive.

Ismahan Abdullahi of the Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans said San Diego’s strength is its diversity.

.Led by our values, we want to take our region forward, not backward,. Abdullahi said.

The terrorists are already complaining. I must credit Trump, the bad guys freak out when the Don so much as combs his hair.

Inside the board chambers, Milad Torabi, a member of San Diego Border Dreamers, told the supervisors that immigrant communities are “the eyes and ears” for local police.

Yeah, they spy on each other in lieu of being prosecuted for their own crimes. If there’s a second play in the FBI playbook, I haven’t seen it.

I don’t want ANY community to be the “eyes and ears” of police. I don’t want to live in a society where people are encouraged, or pressured, to spy on each other. This applies in the negative as well. Don’t punish me for recognizing that crime is crime. I’m looking at you, Sacramento.


Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

The increasing calls for USA’s breakup are frustrating. When in human history did appeasement ever work? “Too many migrants have moved in here. Let’s let them keep the land, farms and factories they’ve seized; we’ll fall back and draw a new border.” Of all the potential solutions I’ve heard, rewarding evil by formally ceding resources strikes me as the absolute worst, most cucked-up one.

Three points:

First, the welfare state. Do you believe that the parasites will let the taxpayers walk away? That they’ll learn to feed themselves just because they have to? Of course not. The Dindus would swarm the next border in the same way they swarmed the last.

Drain the welfare swamp and the parasites will leave voluntarily. No concessions needed.

Second point, what would happen if California seceded? Would the women in your neighborhood stop voting and quietly return to the kitchen? Would your schools flip around the day the Left Coast quits? As for California, once it went bankrupt (overnight) it would simply swear fealty to Communist China. The reason people want California gone in the first place is its communist leadership so it’s a natural and inevitable matchup. China would then have a powerful foothold in North America. Would that improve your situation?

Don’t reward our treacherous leaders by green-lighting their best-case endgame. Arrest them for treason, obstruction of justice, mass child abuse and the many other crimes they have committed.

And third point, the collapse of national identities and boundaries is not happening in a vacuum. It’s a globalist plot for one-world government, which obviously will only be appealing when civilization everywhere is so messed up that centralized despotism looks like a good idea. A united USA remains a potential threat to that plot. A patchwork of mutually hostile tribes is begging for conquest. Possibly literally. There’s already enough calls in society for a strongman, er, “solutions” to take charge and make our problems go away to reaffirm the truth of being careful what you wish for.

The “Nation of Bob Jenkins, population: his wife and kids” will not be a speedbump to the New World Order. Instead of grabbing our own slices of the pie while we can, let’s try to keep the pie together… if only to spite the social engineering utopians.

Or as Christ said to the Church at Thyatira, “hold on to what you have until I come”.


Rats Gonna Scurry

Increasingly, I believe that the desire for a comprehensive retirement plan is a moral red flag. It was always curious to me how so many people look forward to a time when they can choose to become irrelevant to society, when they can stop producing and focus on endless consumerism… or bury themselves in a dark hole, which is actually worse. Going to the mall at least gets you out of the house.

The second clue is their reaction to people (like me) who don’t want to retire. I may be forced into a nursing home by poor health someday but I won’t go voluntarily. Age 85 and still able to work, that’s a reward for clean living and self-discipline in my book. One must retire TO something in my opinion, not FROM his life as he’s ever known it. That idea seemed to be frightening or even emotionally painful to the a certain type of person. Very strange.

Unless, of course, that person lives in such a way that he sees retirement as an escape plan. It’s a bad sign when the captain of a ship is obsessed with keeping the lifeboats exceptionally well-stocked and -maintained. Similarly, it’s a bad sign when your co-worker’s dream for the future is a golden parachute that can be deployed at a moment’s notice.

Which brings me to the topic at hand: the courageous Massachusetts State Trooper Ryan Sceviour. I blogged on him before, link below, but I like my posts to have closure so I looked him up again to see how he was faring. It was glorious.

Recap, Trooper Sceviour responded to an alcohol-related car crash and arrested Alli Bibaud after finding a heroin kit. She turned out to be a senior judge’s daughter and helpfully discussed her heroin habits with the trooper along with an offer for sex. Sceviour’s superiors later ordered him to sanitize that info out of his report. Sceviour refused and filed a lawsuit.

Ms. Bibaud has since plead guilty to heroin charges.


Former Massachusetts State Police Maj. Susan Anderson has filed a motion to dismiss a federal civil rights lawsuit against her, saying her alleged misdeeds against a state trooper who is suing the major were neither “truly horrendous” nor “inspired by malice or sadism..

Maj. Anderson allegedly told Trooper Ryan Sceviour that an arrest report written by the trooper about a judge’s daughter contained “negative and derogatory statements” about the woman. Maj. Anderson allegedly ordered the trooper to create a new arrest report for the file in Central District Court in Worcester. The trooper is suing the former major.

Maj. Anderson, in announcing her retirement last month, joined the exodus of top state police officials since the arrest of Alli Bibaud, daughter of Dudley District Court Judge Timothy Bibaud. Trooper Sceviour alleges in his lawsuit that alteration of the report already filed in the Worcester court would constitute a criminal act and is a felony.

In her motion to dismiss, Maj. Anderson alleges that her actions fail to rise to the level of “shocking” the consciousness of the public, in a legal sense, and therefore the case against her should be dismissed. She denies wrongdoing, as does the former head of the state police, Richard McKeon, who was colonel and then superintendent.

A lawyer representing Trooper Sceviour on Monday filed a motion in opposition, referring to the effort to dismiss the complaint as a .piece-meal and slanted presentation by Defendant Anderson..

.Of course, Defendant Anderson would have the Court believe that the sudden retirement of all four of the top officials in the State Police who were involved was a coincidence … and that they all shared a sudden urge “to spend more time with family” while the Attorney General and State Ethics Commission investigate their criminal conduct,. the trooper’s attorney, Leonard Kesten wrote in opposing the motion to dismiss.

The intrepid trooper has the bad guys on the run!

People used to trust their kids to care for them in old age, or in themselves after a lifetime of saving up, or at least the Church as a backup. But then our society betrayed its own heirs, then abandoned its faith in Christ and finally quit trusting itself to be ready for the hard times. Result, the wicked both claim there’s nothing wrong with what they do and are desperate to secure a gov’t-backed exit before what they do is discovered.

Is the Deep State a Machiavellian creation of ultrapowerful banksters? Or is it simply petty bureaucrats trying to flee before any pursue?

Now 13 Cities Oppose Moonbeam’s Sanctuary State

Newport Beach voted 7-0 UNANIMOUSLY for sanity. Sourced from Fox News:


San Diego County still scheduled for Apr. 17 vote. My, my, how odd that all these sanctuary state killjoys happen to be so close to the Mexican border. Don’t they realize they’re poised to be the primary beneficiaries of this illegal law? Don’t they want to be vibrant and learn Spanish so the anchor baby mommas on welfare don’t have to learn English?

Or… are all the other cities & counties in California expecting these ‘buffer zones’ to absorb all the community-strengthening illegal immigrants so they can virtue-signal without “cultural enrichment”?


Worst Crisis Actor EVER

Parkland, Florida is getting farcically ridiculous.

A teacher at Parkland, Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High.who said he’d be willing to arm himself at school to protect students.has been accused of leaving his loaded handgun in a public restroom, where it was picked up and fired by a drunk homeless man. The Miami Herald reported chemistry teacher Sean Simpson told deputies he left his gun by accident but, by the time he realized, the homeless man had already found it and fired the Glock 9mm at a wall. Simpson said he was able to grab the gun away from the homeless man, Joseph Spataro, who was later charged with firing a weapon while intoxicated. Simpson was arrested and charged with failing to safely store a firearm and posted a $250 cash bond, but reportedly faces no disciplinary action from the school, where 17 people were killed by a teen gunman on Feb. 14.

Ah, guns, those little rascals! They always run off when your back is turned or pants are down! This incident sounds just a little suspicious. Let’s look at the original article:

Not the most normal sight: a gun left in the bathroom stall.

But that’s exactly what went down on Sunday in a men’s room at the Deerfield Beach Pier. …

On Tuesday, the Broward School Board unanimously rejected the state’s new program to arm school staff, part of a new law the Florida Legislature passed after the Feb. 14 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school shootings that left 17 students and educators dead.

Boldface mine. Could the motive possibly have been more obvious? Don’t quit your day job, Simpson, although the fact that you still have your day job teaching at Parkland School post-massacre after negligently arming homeless bums is damning.

California Medicine: Cyanide From India

Christ told us that if the End Times would not be shortened that nobody would survive. The California state government is obliging Him: the Golden State’s death spiral is tightening into a tornado.

California’s government would set prices for hospital stays, doctor visits and other health care services under legislation introduced Monday, vastly remaking the industry in a bid to lower health care costs. …

Uh-oh. Only the most delusional of CommuNazis can believe that the secret to lower costs is dictating them. This is going to be bad…

The proposal in California would affect private health plans, including those offered by employers and purchased by individuals. A nine-member commission appointed by the governor and legislative leaders would set prices for everything from a physical exam to an allergy test to heart bypass surgery. No other state has such a requirement.

Well… fuck. FUCK, this is bad. Didn’t the Soviet Union do exactly this and millions died as a direct result? Wasn’t this sort of thing the reason we considered them the Bad Guys? How can these atheist assholes believe they’ll succeed if they try Stupid just one more time?

“If we do not act now, I’m concerned that health care prices will become unsustainable,” Assemblyman Ash Kalra, a freshman Democrat from San Jose who wrote the legislation, said in a news conference in Sacramento.

Ash Kalra is an American-born Indian who on 1.29.2018 forced the state Assembly to recognize one of India’s national holidays. Magic Dirt Fail. Go home, Kalra, you Communist. You don’t belong in America. This loathsome legislation you offered is indisputable proof that you hate everything America ever stood for. You are not a citizen. You are not one of us.

The measure faces an uphill battle in the Legislature, where lawmakers are generally cautious about making drastic changes to the health care system and are already juggling a wide range of ambitious proposals.

The proposal is backed by influential unions including the Service Employees International Union, Unite Here and the Teamsters. The unions are frustrated that health care costs are gobbling an increasing share of employee compensation. …

The usual Gimme Yo’ Money suspects.

Health care providers say price controls would encourage doctors to move out of state or retire, making it harder for people to see a physician when they’re sick, and force hospitals to lay off staff or, in some cases, close their doors.

Recorded history agrees unanimously.

The California Medical Association, which represents physicians, called the proposal “radical” and warned that it would reduce choices for consumers.

“No state in America has ever attempted such an unproven policy of inflexible, government-managed price caps across every health care service,” Dr. Theodore Mazer, the CMA president, said in a statement.

Under Kalra’s bill, prices would be tied to Medicare’s rate for a particular service or procedure, with that price as a floor. There would be a process for doctors or hospitals to argue that their unique circumstances warrant payments higher than the state’s standard rate.

You know the welfare state is cancer because it only grows, never shrinks.

Paying hospitals 125 percent of Medicare’s rate would cut $18 billion in revenue and force them to trim nurses and other support staff, said Dietmar Grellman, senior vice president of the California Hospital Association. Private insurers make up for the low payments from government-funded health care, which doesn’t cover the full cost of care, he said.

“That’s why their bill is such an empty promise,” Grellman said. “They take money out of the system with rate regulation, but then they don’t address the huge gaping hole that’s created by Medicare and Medicaid.”

In recent decades health care spending has risen faster than inflation and wages while employers and health plans have shifted more of the costs onto consumers through higher premiums, deductibles and copays. Americans spend more per capita on health care than other developed countries.

That’s because ‘other developed countries’ steal our R&D successes and hide their state-subsidized medical costs under waiting lists and other rationing measures.

Also, the Baby Boomers are getting old & sick now, aren’t they? They will go to their graves without ever once having spent enough of other peoples’ money.

Meanwhile, a wave of consolidation by hospitals, physician groups and insurance companies has given industry players more power to demand higher rates.

It’s a showdown between Big Pharma and Big Welfare. Hmm. Should the White Male Christian California taxpayer grab his ankles for the ass-raping now or wait for the waiting list for the ass-raping waiting list sign-up?

God, I wish there was a sane State I could move to.


Alabama’s Ulterior Motive

A judge on Thursday sentenced an Alabama teenager to 65 years in prison for a series of crimes, including murder, even though a police officer was the one who actually killed the victim.

Lakeith Smith, now 18, was convicted under the state’s accomplice liability law in March. Based on that law, a person can be convicted of felony murder if they were committing a crime with the deceased that led to the other person’s death, according to the Montgomery Advertiser. Most U.S. states have similar laws.

In Smith’s case, he was involved in burglaries alongside A.Donte Washington, 16, when a police officer shot and killed Washington in 2015.

In February 2015, both Smith and Washington were part of a group of five who broke into two houses in Millbrook, Alabama, the Advertiser reports. When police responded to the scene, the two sides exchanged gunfire. Body camera footage played in court showed Washington running towards an officer pointing a gun at him. The officer then shot and killed Washington.

Believe it or not, I’m not a fan of accomplice liability laws. When a homeowner caps a burglar’s trash or a cop guns down a fleeing suspect, no crime has been committed. Only justice. It makes no sense to charge an accomplice for a good deed.

But then, my opinion is the police would have been justified in gunning down all five of the fleeing burglars once one of them chose to play Cops & Robbers because proactive policing is now forbidden. You can’t operate on both “reactive policing” and “proportionate force”; first they pick the terms of engagement, then you aren’t allowed to play harder than them? That’s just asking to be outplayed by crooks at every turn. I think this kind of law is merely an expression of frustration that our criminal justice system cares more about the criminal than the justice.

It is good that Lack-Wit Smith is doing 65 years–he laughed when his sentence was handed down and refused a plea bargain of 25 years, great way to show repentance ya moron–but life would have been better for the taxpayers of Alabama if he’d been gunned down on the spot because his partner in crime wanted to be a cop-killer. Or if Smith had been run out of town before this incident happened. Using accomplice liability laws to pack on the years, eh, nobody is getting what they truly want.

If anybody can find the bodycam footage, please give me a link. It was used in the trial but I failed to find it on the Internet. Gang of 5 black burglars shooting it out with police? Gotta be a good show.


Charisma Magazine Reports No Church Discipline

Another trip to the bottomless well of Charisma Magazine. “In Wake of Recent Sex Scandals, Do Churches Actually Discipline Members?”

More than 8 in 10 Protestant senior pastors say their church has not disciplined a member in the past year. More than half say they don’t know of a case when someone has been disciplined.

“It’s one of the topics that churches rarely talk about,” said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research. …

McConnell says in general, church discipline would apply when offenders refuse to acknowledge their wrongdoing, persist in it or are no longer qualified for leadership.

Sounds like a workable standard. So, church is apparently full of people who don’t acknowledge their wrongdoing or if they persist in it, aren’t confronted. Did someone say porn? The ordinary guy doesn’t acknowledge it because he knows it’s wrong but doesn’t have an alternative. Clergy don’t confront the persistence of porn because the only Biblical alternative will, to put it mildly, inconvenience their daughters’ plans for med school and Justin Bieber.

According to the phone survey of 1,000 Protestant senior pastors, 16 percent of pastors say their church has disciplined a member in the last year. That includes 3 percent in the last month, 5 percent in the last six months and 8 percent in the last year.

More than half (55 percent) say no member has been disciplined during their time as pastor or before their tenure. Twenty-one percent say a member was disciplined three or more years ago. Five percent say there was a case of discipline in the last two years.

Pentecostal (29 percent), Holiness (23 percent) and Baptist pastors (19 percent) are most likely to say a church member was disciplined in the past year. Methodist (4 percent) and Presbyterian/Reformed (9 percent) pastors are less likely.

Overall, about half of evangelical pastors (49 percent) and two-thirds of mainline pastors (67 percent) say they don’t know of a case where someone was disciplined at their church.

LifeWay Research also asked pastors about the process of discipline. Few churches say the responsibility for discipline lies solely with the pastor (8 percent), church elders (14 percent), trustees or board members (4 percent) or church deacons (1 percent).

Half (51 percent) say two or more groups must agree. Eighteen percent say there is no formal discipline process.

Pastors of churches of 100 or more attenders (17 percent) are more likely to say elders alone handle discipline than churches with 99 or fewer attenders (11 percent). African-American pastors (21 percent) are more likely than white pastors (6 percent) to say the pastor alone is responsible for church discipline.

Mainline pastors (24 percent) are more likely than evangelical pastors (15 percent) to say their church has no formal discipline policy.

What you’re looking at is the tyranny of low expectations. Of course there are few grounds for church discipline when you, the average member are expected to do no more than sit on a pew, sing a few songs, maybe participate in communion or baptism on an opt-in basis. You’re barely noticed when you arrive at church and barely noticed when you depart. For what could you possibly be disciplined, when you are trusted with nothing?


Dirty Sheriff Bill Gore

On April 17, the county of San Diego is scheduled to vote on whether to join the Federal lawsuit against California’s sanctuary state law. Supervisor Dianne Jacob is spearheading the vote and expects it to pass on a 3-2 margin.

Opposing this vote is a serious dirtbag of a San Diego County Sheriff, Bill Gore. Remember way back in 1992, the Ruby Ridge standoff between the Weaver family and the FBI? Bill Gore was the agent who wrote the rules of engagement for that fiasco that allowed the shooting of a woman armed with an infant. He, along with four other agents, refused to testify before Congress by invoking 5th Amendment rights against self-incrimination.

Next, remember way back in 9.11.2001? Oh yeah, baby, the 9/11 hijackers. The 900-page Congressional report on the hijackings faulted Gore, special agent in charge of the San Diego FBI office, for negligence. Gore defends himself:

The congressional report on the Sept. 11 attacks is rife with inaccuracies and greatly exaggerates the possibility the terrorist acts could have been prevented, according to the former head of the FBI’s San Diego office.

In an interview, former Special Agent in Charge Bill Gore asserted there was no evidence the FBI missed opportunities to catch two of the hijackers who for months lived in San Diego.

He also said there was no evidence that anyone, including Saudi officials, knowingly assisted the terrorists.

“I believe the joint intelligence committee jumped to conclusions not supported by the facts of the FBI investigation,” Gore said. “I was convinced by the time I left the FBI [in] January that there was no Al Qaeda support network in San Diego prior to or after 9/11, and that no group of people wittingly helped the hijackers in furtherance of the 9/11 attacks.”

In its 900-page report, the joint panel of the House and Senate intelligence committees criticized the pre-Sept. 11 counterterrorism analysis done by the FBI and CIA. The report suggests there were several missed opportunities to foil the attacks, and that alleged intelligence failures were especially obvious in San Diego, where two hijackers were known to a longtime FBI informant. …

Gore, who retired from the FBI in January and took a job with the San Diego County district attorney’s office, said there also was no proof that hijackers Almihdhar and Alhazmi lived in San Diego for any reason other than its Islamic community and the opportunity to take flying lessons in a region with great year-round weather.

Gore acknowledged that the two future hijackers did come into contact with a trusted FBI informant, but said there was no reason for the informant to bring that fact to the attention of his FBI handler because Almihdhar and Alhazmi did nothing publicly that would suggest they were violent extremists.

That FBI informant is… for fuck’s sake, why do we even have an FBI?…

Abdussattar Shaikh, who had been an unpaid FBI informant for six years in 2000, rented a room to Mihdhar for about a month and Hazmi for seven. The Office of the Inspector General report noted that Shaikh told his FBI handler that the pair were quiet and “good Muslims.. He gave the handler their first names only and the agent never got their full names. The report said that if the agent had been more curious about the two men living with his informant, their names could have been checked through government databases that may have identified them as terrorists. According to the Office of the Inspector General report, the bureau cut ties with Shaikh in July 2003 and paid him $100,000 for his services. …

Fifteen years after 9/11, Mihdhar, Hazmi, and Shaikh are still the subject of discussion by Shaikh’s neighbors. Two of them are a couple who was sitting on the porch of their Lemon Grove home on the night of September 14, 2001, waiting for the FBI. It was almost 11 p.m. when four black SUVs arrived and began driving slowly up and down Mt. Vernon Street.

The couple had reported Shaikh, their next door neighbor, to the FBI after learning that he had boarded two of the 9/11 terrorists. They watched the parade of vehicles on the street for several minutes before the SUVs pulled into the 200-foot driveway that can be mistaken for a dead end street.

The couple had given the FBI its first big investigative lead, but agents were having trouble finding their home; a strange occurrence, given that Shaikh was, after all, an FBI informant. They had learned about Shaikh’s ties to Mihdhar and Hazmi earlier in the evening when they allowed a Los Angeles Times reporter who interviewed Shaikh to use their phone to call the downtown newsroom hours after deadline. The reporter had staked out Shaikh’s house for five hours before the man returned from mosque. The CIA and a handful of FBI agents had known since early 2000 that Mihdhar and Hazmi were in the U.S. But in the weeks leading up to the attacks the FBI had no clue where they were. It was not until the Times tracked the pair to Shaikh’s house that agents discovered where they had lived.

A newspaper reporter found the FBI informant before the FBI could. Lovely. Sounds like Shaikh was a double agent for the Saudis. He started out as an “unpaid informant”? That means the FBI had dirt on him and made a deal in lieu of prosecution. Anybody sufficiently law-abiding to risk his life for the cops on principle alone is sufficiently law-abiding to not have “person of interest” buddies. I’m shocked he quietly assisted the hijackers like a “good Muslim” would instead of alerting the authorities.

And Special Agent In Charge Bill Gore was running that show. He “voluntarily” left the FBI in 2003, about the same time as the 9/11 investigations wrapped up and about the same time as Shaikh got paid $100k for services rendered to the American people.

Gore transitioned quickly to San Diego’s district attorney office… no red flags there… and was elected Sheriff in 2010. Local scandals followed national scandals, most notably the Hannah Anderson kidnapping in 2013, a very interesting incident from the Red Pilled perspective. Check it out:

According to released warrants, DiMaggio received letters from Hannah Anderson which were found in his home by investigators, and exchanged over a dozen calls with her before the murders occurred. However, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said Anderson was “a victim in every sense of the word” and did not willingly go with DiMaggio. Investigators do not suspect any complicity on her part. Gore also suggested that authorities may never be able to fully determine the reason for DiMaggio’s crime rampage.

With all that for a background… Gore claims that cooperating with Federal immigration enforcement is bad for public safety. Quoting from the first linked article,

San Diego Supervisors are expected to discuss the matter on April 17th in a closed-door meeting with County Counsel. But while Supervisor Jacob agues that the Trump administration’s push to force local law enforcement officers to stringently enforce federal immigration mandates would increase public safety, Sheriff Bill Gore suggests it would have the opposite effect, making communities less safe by making immigrants afraid to report crimes.

Gawdammit, the illegal immigrants ARE the crimes! And Trump isn’t forcing anybody to do anything; the state law prohibits voluntary cooperation with ICE, a clear-cut obstruction of justice. Sigh, moving on to his cronyism:

But San Diego County’s Sheriff, Bill Gore, told East County Magazine in an interview last week taped for airing on KNSJ radio that California’s sanctuary state law already allows ample cooperation between his department and federal authorities regarding immigrants who have committed serious crimes, thanks to changes that Sheriff Gore helped to negotiate directly with Governor Jerry Brown. Those allow his jail staff to turnover immigrants who have been convicted of, or arrested for more than 800 serious crimes.

So, Gore and “Moonbeam” Brown are in bed together. Of course Gore will cooperate with ICE as soon as it saves him the cost of incarcerating a convicted felon. Gore’s opposition to this vote has nothing to do with law enforcement and everything to do with covering his political ally. Why would Sheriff Gore do that? Because all the dirt in this dirtbag’s bag is about to explode on him and he needs his allies right now:

Article dated April 5, 2018, the San Diego Union Tribune:

“Sheriff Gore said he considered firing his rival for office, but thought it would look bad” (Actual headline. Gotta love it.)

Tensions between San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore and the deputy trying to take over his job . Cmdr. Dave Myers . are heightening, with the incumbent saying he’d like his challenger gone.

.I wish Dave would take a leave of absence and go work somewhere else,. Gore told editors and reporters at an editorial board meeting of The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Myers said that his relationship with his boss has been acrimonious since he gave him a heads up that he was launching his campaign.

.Ever since that day, he has marginalized me,. Myers said.

Tension reached a new level last week with Gore telling the newspaper that he considered firing Myers.

.It crossed my mind. To what end? It would be a big news story. .Sheriff fires opponent in sheriff’s race,.. Gore said, suggesting a potential headline.

But deposing Myers would have been a bad idea, Gore explained.

.He.s got civil service protections. Plus how would that look? Oh, the sheriff has fired the guy he’s running against. What’s he got to hide, why is he afraid of this guy?. Gore said.

Besides being at odds on the campaign trail, the candidates have been in conflict at work and their once-friendly relationship has crumbled.

.I promoted him three times. I’ve been to his house for dinner, I considered us friends. I’m disappointed in the tack that he’s taken,. Gore, 70, of Mission Hills, said in a follow-up interview on Wednesday.

Myers, 56, of La Mesa, has been with the Sheriff’s Department for more than three decades, was reassigned after he launched his campaign. Once a commander with 400 people reporting to him, he now has no subordinates. He retains his $176,000 salary.

Myers is no longer responsible for court security and has been given a new office. Myers says it’s a “broom closet” whole Gore notes it has two windows. Myers is now handling various off-beat projects, including developing a floor plan for an upcoming department move.

Myers said he’s being marginalized because he’s been vocal about recent scandals involving the department, including a rash of jail deaths and the handling of the case of a deputy who was accused of groping more than a dozen women on the beat.

.Anybody that talks about true issues and questions his authority is the enemy,. Myers said. “But if he wants to fire me, fire me. Let’s hash it out..

Gore, the sheriff since 2009, said that Myers is undermining the department in order to help his campaign. Before Myers was removed from the chain of command, he participated in meetings where the department’s weaknesses were discussed . including issues that could be used as fodder in political attacks.

.Dave doesn’t work well with others,. Gore said. .It’s that simple..

.After 235 years, our government is bound by self-imposed rolls of red tape: all these .concerns., rules, and useful but over-applied laws..

In hindsight, this was the work of the Deep State. Such red tape empowers career bureaucrats at the expense of our elected leaders.quite a power grab.

That.s true, but not the real explanation. Every single post I write about American reform brings forth the response .It’s Not Our Fault.. We’re just the customers of the American cafe, whining that the service is not what people of such awesomeness deserves.

The Founders gave us the machinery to govern ourselves. If we’re to lazy to operate it, that is our fault.

The second stage excuses I get, in reply to the above, is that we face big bad people. Little weak us have to surrender without a fight. The Founders cry every time they hear this.

By this logic, the North Koreans deserve to be starved by their government because they aren’t bothering to replace it. But never mind. This was going to be another MGTOW rant but while writing it, I ended up taking a remarkable detour. Larry is rejecting God with this response, not the MGTOW movement. Notice how he insists, three times, that we are powerful enough to change society by ourselves.

Nietzsche said it better with “The world is the will to power.and nothing besides!” If you don’t like the way things are then become strong, will oneself to victory, be the ubermenschen! Break some eggs and make an omelet!

What is missing in this social calculus is religion. God.

In point of fact, Christ gave and demonstrated the solution to leaders’ corruption: expose and call out the evil deeds of wicked men. Simple but there’s a problem here: in order to call out evil, one must first accept that evil exists and has been defined by God, not humans. Another problem, doing so will make your mortal life uncomfortable. And possibly brief.

Only Christians are capable of making a morally good society because we are the only ones who follow the God of Truth. (Some other religions come closer to Truth than others.) Our society went evil the day it denied God and it will only become good when it accepts God once again. Not when “our team” seizes the reins of power. How would “our team” behave differently if we use the same definitions of victory and success as “them”?

Larry keeps reaching for a patch on his blog, a solution that will enable the world to continue rebelling against Christ without the inevitable consequences. Blaming the victims of the rebellion such as MGTOWs is a stopgap solution while he searches for the next political movement, the next charismatic statesman, that magical economic MacGuffin that will cleanse our societies of sin and trade deficits. Nietzsche’s Ubermensch.

I can guess what would happen if he found himself a legislator in Congress: the same realization that occurred to every other well-meaning, Godless legislator in the last half century. “If I do right by society and keep my promises, I will suffer personally and society will probably not be better off. If I go along to get along then my life, the only life I have, will be happy and materially successful at the expense of a theoretical ‘the future’.”

A Christian can make that decision because he’s playing the real game of “keeping my promise will enhance my immortal soul” and “God will reward me for suffering in order to do good”. But an atheist never will. The atheist says “in the long run, we are all dead anyway”.

That’s what the bureaucrats did when they created the Deep State. They rejected God and replaced him with a new model of Government that, surprise, would be run by them. It wasn’t altruism or even arrogance that led them to do this. It was atheism. If you have no soul, no future beyond the grave then why would you NOT abuse your power to win at the game of life? Even if you don’t want to.

That is the real game. Look, America is going to die. Maybe today, maybe in a thousand years. But your soul will not. It will outlive your country and the stars in the sky. Whether you want it to or not. Most people don’t, kings and pawns alike, because the kind of person we need to be for eternity is not the kind of person we need to be for exploiting a brief window of opportunity.
Giving up and going MGTOW is not defeat. It is focusing on the most important priority a man can have, his self, in an age when society seeks the destruction of his self. In a cosmic irony, that is also how you fix the mortal world: by putting the more important, immortal concerns first. Or as Christ put it in Matthew 6:33, But seek first God’s kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Men and women are different. So are the God-fearing and Godless.

No society is greater than the religion of its people. The current religion of the West is Evolution: might makes right, human life has no intrinsic value and women are the gatekeepers of virtue. Does that sound like your society? Well, that’s why.
