Just some facts would be welcome

Scorched earth still rages on in America.

Last week President Trump gave a decent speech in front of Congress and got 24 hours of positive media coverage, so it seemed likely the Dems would launch another hit in the media to destroy Trump’s positive media news cycle.  Sure enough the allegations against Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, hit pieces in both the Washington Post and New York Times set off a Twitter frenzy March 1st.

President Trump just went nuclear yesterday morning, accusing President Obama of ordering wiretaps on Trump Tower during the election in a tweetstorm:

Trump tweeted early Saturday morning in one part of a six-tweet tirade that began just after 6:30 a.m.
The President went on to compare the alleged tapping of his phones to Watergate and called Obama “bad (or “sick).”
“How low has President Obama gone to tap my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy,” Trump tweeted.
But two former senior US officials quickly dismissed Trump’s accusations out of hand.
“Just nonsense,” said one former senior US intelligence official.
Another former senior US official with direct knowledge of investigations by the Justice Department under the Obama administration said Trump’s phones were never tapped.
“This did not happen. It is false. Wrong,” the former official told CNN.
A spokesman for Obama, Kevin Lewis, called “any suggestion” that Obama or any White House official ordered surveillance against Trump “simply false.”

At this point, it’s time for leaders in both parties to stand up and be Americans first.

The President owes us details on his allegations.

We are quickly reaching a point of constitutional crisis.

Today is Day #46  of the Trump presidency and assuredly  America’s credibility and stability cannot survive 4 years of unrelenting nuclear option, scorched earth partisan information war.

Best thing for America would be a complete outing of the massive wholesale public corruption of the 2016 Clinton presidential campaign and the Trump presidential campaign.

We need answers on the Trump/Russian influence questions swirling.

We need answers on the Clinton scorched earth efforts, to include collusion with the media & Obama administration efforts.

We need email answers on both Trump associates’ connections with Wikileaks and Hillary’s server.

Beyond the Russian influence hysteria we need answers on Abedin’s email stash and the House Dems Pakistani IT peeps, who are under investigation.

Just some facts would be welcome.

An extreme feminist Utopia

A 1973 card I bought in my early teens, when I first began collecting quotes.

The Thoreau quote above struck a chord with me when I was around 13 years old.   Most people go with the flow, but I’ve always been a contrarian.   Sometimes, well, make that most of the time, life is probably easier if you don’t march to a different drummer.  The thing about refusing to buy into things, just because “that’s the way it’s always been” or “experts say it is so” or “what makes you think you know more than all the brilliant people, who have come before you” is perhaps they never challenged the “accepted wisdom” or thought about it in the way I am thinking about it.  I refuse to go along to get along if something doesn’t make sense to me.   Of course,  I keep trying to understand the “accepted wisdom”, but if I believe that is not right, then I will not say I accept it.  I might be completely misguided in my views, but until I believe something makes sense, I’m not going to say I believe it.

One thing I tell my kids repeatedly is: “Don’t ever buy into other people’s bullshit.”

I believe America needs a whole lot more people to adopt a more contrarian viewpoint.

A few posts back I wrote about Charles Eric Maine’s 1958 dystopian sci-fi novel , World Without Men, which amazon.com’s blurb describes as:

Maine’s bases his vision of an ideological dystopia not on criticism of socialism or communism per se, nor of technocracy per se, but rather of feminism. Maine saw in the nascent feminism of his day (the immediate postwar period) a dehumanizing and destructive force, tending towards totalitarianism, which had the potential to deform society in radical, unnatural ways. Maine believed that feminism, as he understood it, derived its fundamental premises from hatred of, not respect for, the natural order. He also believed that feminism entailed a rebellion against sexual dimorphism.”

https://www.amazon.com/World-Without-Charles-Eric-Maine/dp/1614272271/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1488252667&sr=8-1&keywords=world+without+men

Not being a fan of science fiction or novels about dystopian societies, I felt relief when I finally received my copy of World Without Men.  The novel is only 190 pages and a quick read.  However, many themes in the plot evoke deeper questions about women, women in groups, men, and men’s influence on women’s behavior that left me pondering modern feminism.  I’m already rereading several sections.

Before I begin the book report on an imaginary society in a 1950s sci-fi novel, consider that talking about males and females shouldn’t be complicated, yet many things in our culture today require a concentrated effort at suspending rational thinking to believe in the bizarre “gender issues”, because frankly, they’re made-up and have no basis in the world as we know it, scientific facts, or historical evidence.  The feminist revolution spawned not just a battle for women to have equal access to jobs and equal pay for equal work, but an endless war against the patriarchal system (code for western civilization) and at its core a hatred and complete disdain for men and all things that are traditionally considered masculine, manly, or male attributes, beyond mere differences in genitalia.

I reject feminism, because it’s not just some benign battle for “fairness” in the workplace or expanding opportunities for women, it’s about tearing down the entire framework of western civilization.  Maine’s novel, set 5,000 years into the future, describes a world literally without men.  Although sounding totally implausible at first glance, Maine offers snapshot-like short chapters into the past, that lay out frightening events along the way to how this “world without men” came to be.  While novels like this aren’t to be taken literally or as prescience for what is to come, like 1984, Maine touched on some issues that are worth thinking about.

Parthenogenesis, asexual reproduction where an embryo develops from an unfertilized egg cell, becomes the means of reproduction in this futuristic, totalitarian, lesbian world Maine created.  The society, 5,000 years int0 the future, begins the story of a world of only women, who are controlled by government committees and artificial intelligence from computers, to believe in the Parthenogenetic Adaptation Syndrome (P.A.S.), that teaches women that nature has evolved to allow women to have babies without men.  The official history teaches that men, over time, died out and offers some glimpses into a world with war, expensive space exploration and conflict in those ancient times.  The P.A.S. requires rigid, cradle to grave conformity to all rules decreed by the government departments, like the Department of the Written Word and the Department of Social Stability.

All women are told when it is their duty to produce babies, which they never see and which are raised in government institutions.  The women are told that these babies are born naturally through parthenogenesis.  Relationships in this world are superficial and geared toward physical pleasure, not deep emotional bonds.  Along with government committees tightly controlling reproduction, the governmental Department of Mortic Revenue controls who dies and when they die, to maintain a stable population.  Even in this peaceful world, where no one is allowed to make waves or disrupt the social stability, rabble-rousers and contrarians keep emerging.

The official P.A.S. history teaches:

“There never could have been a Utopia while man survived and controlled human affairs, for his innate aggressiveness and insatiable curiosity forced him restlessly to pursue the ever-widening boundary of knowledge without giving a thought to the application of his newly found powers in the service of humanity.  In abolishing man, nature had opened the way to the permanent establishment of peace and plenty.  Several women scientists had pointed out that man had been necessary to nature’s purpose; he had tackled, with considerable energy and ingenuity, the problem of adapting his environment to himself, and had succeeded in wresting from the blind forces of the cosmos all the power he needed to secure the supremacy and ultimate survival of the human race as an entity.  And at that point man became redundant. Worse he became an obstacle to the wise and peaceful exploitation of natural power for the benefit of his species.  So man ceased to exist, and woman became mistress of her planet, and nature provided parthenogenesis to replace the outmoded reproduction mechanism that had vanished with the male sex.”

p. 35, World Without Men, Maine, Charles Eric

While the official belief is in P.A.S., secretly the government has scientists working tirelessly on trying to produce living male babies, because human parthenogenesis is a lie.

Maine has chapters that provide historical glimpses into how this all female world developed, beginning with a contraceptive drug called Sterilin, which creates temporary sterility in women, to allow women sexual freedom.  Keep in mind this novel was written before the Pill was introduced.  Another chapter moves further ahead where a reporter wants to break a big story to expose that the governments of the world are hiding an alarming decline in male births, attributed to nature overcompensating for artificially sterile females, by overproducing females.  The imbalance at this point in the story is reaching critical mass, but to avoid widespread panic, governments are suppressing the demographic statistics.  The reporter is assassinated before he can break the story.

Further along in the progression to a world without men is a short chapter on an old man, kept locked living in isolation, with caretakers.  This man has been told he is the last living man on earth and his memories of younger days, being kept locked up with other men to provide, basically stud service and genetic material, sounds like how scientists today work to preserve endangered species.  The male embryos keep dying off.  Many aspects of this story fit perfectly with how scientists react to existential challenges, how most people adapt and conform easily to whatever rules they are indoctrinated into believing.  And at each historical point in this story, there are people who rebel and believe in exposing the lies.

I don’t want to give away the ending completely, but like so many other epic stories throughout history a male child is born and his birth rocks the entire system. The committees and artificial intelligence, reach the verdict that the male baby must be destroyed. He will disrupt the stability.  A revolt begins.  Maine writes:

“It is strange how a small thing can unbalance a perfectly planned society.  Perhaps stability is geared in some way to purpose and direction, and perhaps the stabilizing was research into the synthetic creation of a male human.  Without that focal point of endeavor, like the nucleus of a cell, it may be that society tends to lose its purpose, to disintegrate.  The psychology of a social perversion-neurosis in very complex.”

p. 189, World Without Men, Maine, Charles Eric

Although, this story is science fiction, modern feminism does tend toward totalitarianism, where whatever “gender theories” and  pseudo-science, manufactured among feminist academics,  get crammed down our throats through “experts” lecturing us in the media and through the K-12 public school system.  Any who disagree are shouted down and ostracized.  While no catastrophic decline in male births has occurred due to widespread use of contraceptives since the advent of The Pill in 1960,  in Russia and several Western European countries that embraced both contraception, small families and abortion, demographics have reached  a critical stage.  These countries are not reproducing enough children to sustain their ethnic groups.

As bizarre as the P.A.S. belief in this story sounds, truthfully it’s no more bizarre than the current transgender myths and endless “gender variations” being sold by “experts” and LGBT activists.  A very small fraction of the population was homosexual before the massive efforts to mainstream gay marriage and gay rights, but along with the mainstreaming is a full-court effort in Hollywood to produce movies and TV shows with gay characters to normalize homosexuality.  As homosexuality is mainstreamed and promoted, more young people will engage in homosexual behavior.

The activists have carefully packaged all of their radical gender agenda as “civil rights”, casting any who don’t buy into their beliefs as “haters”.  With the rapid successes with gay activism, the current transgender activism is intended to mainstream transgender behavior and teach children that despite being born male or female, they should feel free to choose their “gender”.  The push to “treat” children before adolescence with hormones to stop puberty is already happening and some doctors also have begun administering hormones to cross-sex, beginning the sex change process in children as young as 12.

Maines’s fictional all-female society was thousands of years in the making, but looking at the LGBT transformation in society in the past 20 years shows how quickly people can be brainwashed, manipulated and led by relentless mass media saturation and social engineering  to “normalize” just about any behavior.

As for me, I’ll remain a contrarian and insist that boys and girls should be allowed to be just boys and girls again, without all this gender-bending, destructive,  pseudo-science robbing so many children of the innocence to just be kids.  And we shouldn’t feel like we are being insensitive to politely say , “I don’t believe in 50+ genders.” or “I believe transgenderism is a mental disorder.”

The powers that be, in any human system, try to silence and squash disrupters, who challenge the system.  Maine got that part completely right.

Literally, a false flag operation…

Images often speak louder than words.  Last year, in early March, Donald Trump ignited a media firestorm, when the mainstream media reported on his March 5, 2016 Orlando rally, where he led the crowd in raising their right hand and pledging to vote for Donald J. Trump.  The Hitler Nuremberg comparison blazed across headlines and dominated media talking points.  That pledge rally was obviously planned.   That Trump protests were being funded and fueled by Left-wing activists is obvious.  That Trump the “loose cannon” and Trump “the fascist” memes were part of the Clinton campaign’s media effort to paint Trump as Hitler is obvious too, but who in Trump’s campaign encouraged Trump to use strong-man rhetoric and imagery?

Once again, here’s the timeline on Trump the fascist memes:

February 28, 2016 – Trump retweets a Mussolini quote and refuses to denounce David Duke on a Sunday talk show.

March 3, 2016 – GOP debate where Trump defends Mussolini quote and doubles down on his committing war crimes to defeat ISIS.

March 5, 2016 – Trump does a staged raised arm pledge rally where the Nuremberg imagery smacked you in the face. He read a prepared card with that pledge. I’d love to know who came up with that pledge rally idea and if it was Trump, did anyone try to dissuade him.

March 10, 2016 – Michelle Fields claims she was strong-armed by Lewandowski leaving a press briefing. I have wondered if he was a handy Clinton middleman, because it sure seemed like he was set-up as the thug in that Michelle Fields controversy. I watched that video over and over and did not see him grab her arm where the bruises were and I believe she sounded very deceptive in interviews.

The Trump controversy builds. And then he walked into the home of wacko leftist central, Chicago.  The timeline suggests that  Trump was duped into setting up his own bonfire and lighting it, before he was tossed into it by the left-wing mob.

March 12, 2016 – Leftist ground zero, Chicago, Trump faces massive organized leftist mobs and cancels his rally.

Those protests in Chicago were staged and funded by leftists – and Soros very likely played a large role.  This riot in San Jose is just part of that continued staged agitation propaganda to try to incite violent clashes with Trump supporters.  I still wonder who in Trump’s campaign egged him on with this strong-man themed garbage?  Was that pledge rally a Trump brain storm or was Trump sold on it?   Soros and other far-left groups are likely funding, organizing and staging these riots and street clashes, but who in Trump’s campaign came up with these strong-man talking points in the first place???   That’s what I would like to know, because it sure looks like he was massively set-up.  When he did that pledge rally, where the liberal press was primed with making that Nuremberg rally comparison immediately, almost like they had received some talking points.  Was there MEDIA COLLUSION and if so, with whom???

The mainstream media seems completely incurious about investigating who is behind organizing and funding Leftist street protests, but assuredly there are networks of organizers and funding.

Over the weekend social media went wild with reports from CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) of Trump supporters waving Russian flags with Trump emblazoned across the middle.  The Atlantic reports:

“Jason Charter, 22, and Ryan Clayton, 36, passed out roughly 1,000 red, white, and blue flags, each bearing a gold-emblazoned “TRUMP” in the center, to an auditorium full of attendees waiting for President Trump to address the conference. Audience members waved the pennants—and took pictures with them—until CPAC staffers realized the trick: They were Russian flags.”

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/02/false-flag-operation-at-cpac/517842/

The men are part of a group, Americans Take Action, and the Huffington Post reports:

“Charter said that pranks can be “fun and still effective in shedding light on a serious situation.” He said Americans Take Action has several other events planned. “I, of course, can’t go into details, but we’re not stopping until Donald Trump is impeached.””

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/cpac-russian-flags-trump_us_58b0ca06e4b060480e0827ab

A Google search yields a many right-wing news sites and blogs asserting Americans Take Action is a group set up by long-time community organizer, street thuggery planner, Bob Creamer.  So, back to the Trump rally chaos in Chicago… and where is Bob Creamer located?  Psst, Chicago.  Here are some links on Creamer:

http://observer.com/2016/10/democratic-party-operative-robert-creamer-used-terror-to-wage-war-on-honesty/

http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/18/politics/project-veritas-action-robert-creamer-donald-trump-rallies/

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-video-sting-democratic-operatives-james-okeefe-20161019-story.html

President Trump causes a great deal of his own bad press, but there are Leftist groups dedicated to provoking bad PR scenes and staging propaganda, street violence, and even, literally, false flag operations…

#NoMoreScorchedEarth

The video above highlights some of Donald Trump’s ways of manipulating people.  He is a very talented con man.  If he were religious, he could give Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker a run for their money.  While the video lays out Trump’s personal talents as a con man, the special sauce for Trump is how he took those talents and applied them to controlling the 24/7 news cycle and manufacturing opinion cascades, using a mass media saturation strategy (information warfare) that the Left originated and controlled for decades.  Trump fixates on perpetuating this image that he’s massively popular (crowd size), so expect him to stage more big rally events to bolster his “popular” image.  He is running the Reality TV Presidency and it’s as phony as he is.

Every time President Trump launches one of his over the top attacks against the “dishonest media”, I’m torn between cheering that he’s taking on the relentless liberal spin cycle and disgust at his destroying the dignity of the Office of the President.

The mainstream media acts as a propaganda front of the Left and Democratic Party.  The mainstream media really did work to legitimize Trump during the GOP primary, to aid in what John Podesta’s leaked email referred to as their Pied Piper strategy.  By late February, early March of 2016, the mainstream media flipped to running the Clinton Scorched Earth 2.0 to take down Trump and help Hillary.  To see how spin works, Twitter is a good place to see American journalists and news organizations in action.  All it takes is a handful of journalists or news organizations colluding with the Dems & Left to create a 24/7 spin cycle, by repeating the same story.  Two of the biggest aggregators of  “fake news” (or at least numerous stories with many factual errors) are the New York Times and the Washington Post.  However, laziness, poor journalistic standards, and liberal hive mentality (groupthink) all play into the 24/7 spin cycle that has allowed the Left’s political messaging to dominate in mainstream media since the early 90s.

The disgusting part of the media collusion with the Left is that the Hollywood crowd jumps in to reinforce the news media spin.  Being no fan of Kellyanne Conway and acknowledging that she has played as big a role in her credibility problems as the mainstream media’s hostile treatment of her, here’s what infuriates about how the media sets out to destroy Trump and his inner-circle.  Conway misspoke about what happened at Bowling Green, KY.  She mentioned a “massacre”.  The media pounced to ridicule Conway with relentless repetition of “no massacre at Bowling Green”.

Conway botched the single best case for thorough vetting.  What really happened is two Al Qaeda bombmakers from Iraq came to the US as refugees and settled in Bowling Green, KY:

In that case, the two Iraqi nationals were indicted on federal terrorism charges accusing them, in part, of providing material support to Al Qaeda in Iraq.

The Iraqi nationals were Waad Ramadan Alwan, who was 30 at the time of his indictment in 2011, and Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, who was then 23.

The FBI launched its investigation into Alwan in 2009, the year he entered the US. He bragged to an FBI source in 2010 about how he’d “f—ked up” US Hummers in Iraq with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and expressed an interest in providing support to terrorists in Iraq. He eventually recruited his friend Hammadi into his scheme to ship money and weapons (including machine guns, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, Stinger missiles, and C4 plastic explosives) to terrorists in Iraq.

The operation was a sting operation — the FBI’s source convinced Alwan and Hammadi that the money and weapons were actually going to terrorists abroad, but they were not.

Alwan and Hammadi entered the US as refugees. They lied about their terrorism ties.”

And the story continues:

“Alwan was sentenced to 40 years in prison and Hammadi was sentenced to life. Both pleaded guilty to the charges against them.”

http://www.businessinsider.com/bowling-green-massacre-2017-2

This story buries the details starting on the fifth paragraph, devoting the first four to Conway stating a terror attack that never happened.  Even after stating the facts, this story emphasizes that these two Al Qaeda bombmakers weren’t planning attacks in the US, but were plotting to ship weapons and money to Al Qaeda in Iraq, as if to say they were no threat to America.  Hello, their support of Al Qaeda would put US troops in Iraq at risk, but you see what I mean about spinning stories to prop up the Left’s talking points.

Being sick to death of Trump’s theatrics and the media’s total dishonesty and collusion with the Dems & Left, most days I just wonder how far Trump vs. the media will push this never ending scorched earth information warfare, where both sides use any means necessary to discredit the other and where the American people are held captive to this corrupt, demoralizing, destructive Alinkskyite battle.  Of course, Trump and his followers embrace using scorched earth against, not only against the Left, but against any Republicans or conservatives who object to “any means necessary” scorched earth information war.  Ostensibly, once they annihilate the enemy (Leftists and any who dare object to their behavior), America will be made safe for “normal” Americans…  Judging by their tossing out all the rules on public decorum, manners, and leading by example, where Trump lies outrageously and engages in embarrassing name-calling tantrums, it is hard to see how at the end of this “war”,  America will have any reputation or values left to defend, but that isn’t stopping those engaged in scorched earth information war.

If you think I exaggerate the scorched earth information war, here’s a piece by Kurt Schlichter, former Army colonel, Trump Twitter commando and senior editor at Townhall.com;

“The Left is getting massively out-Alinskyed, and the hilarious thing is that this band of withered hippies, unemployable millennial safe-space cases, and unlovable + unshaven libfeminists don’t even know it. Oh, their masters sure know it. Soros is bitterly having to ramp up his infusions of blood money to keep his community-organized “grassroots” movements afloat. The less dumb ones among the lying dinosaur media are panicking as their influence fades, and Chuck Schumer is enduring such a non-stop parade of serial humiliations that if the Senate were a penitentiary, he’d be McConnell’s prison Mitch.

The Leftist mafia godmaleidentifyingparents pulling the strings of the Marxist Muppets know the score – they are losing. And it’s awesome. Because, finally, the Right has taken Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and shoved it up where #TheResistance don’t shine.”

Schlichter continues:

“Alinsky’s Rules are relatively simple, and they make sense when you are fighting a conventional opponent with an interest in maintaining the status quo. The Rules are terrific for dealing with an old-school conservative guy who drives a Buick, enjoys gardening, and doesn’t want any trouble. They aren’t so effective against conservative brawlers who like to punch, and who aren’t too fussy about whether it’s with tweets or with fists.

The Rules are not some magic incantation; they are simply some tactical principles that work in certain kinds of fights against certain kinds of opponents – particularly ones willing to unilaterally disarm in the face of an unprincipled enemy. But once the secret is out, it’s relatively easy to turn them around on an enemy that is so stupid it thinks it’s going to gain widespread acceptance among normal Americans by dressing up as genitalia. That’s why the thirteen classic Alinsky Rules are playing out right now in a way the Left did not expect.”

https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2017/02/13/shoving-alinskys-rules-for-radicals-right-back-in-the-lefts-ugly-face-n2284892

Schlichter then lays out the Alinsky rules for radicals.  One can easily see how people who believe in  “by any means necessary” could fall sway to following a venal, self-absorbed, petty, vindictive, lying bully like Donald Trump, but the cost of falling in with Scorched Earth and Alinsky rules is your conscience and what gets burned to the ground in the process is American values and America’s reputation around the world.

We don’t need to burn America to the ground to save it.

Whistleblowing vs. Leaking

The GOP Oversight Committee tweeted a helpful graphic on the difference between legally-protected whistleblowing and leaking, which is a criminal offense.  The main concern should be to protect the classified information throughout the process of reporting wrongdoing.  If you hold a security clearance, your duty is to protect the information and follow the law:
