Some Recent Thoughts I’ve Had

White House spokesman Sean Spicer has resigned, and is being replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders. That’s good, because I didn’t like hearing a “spokesman” who sounded like he was still in middle school.

Prediction: the thorns of the Republican party will cave, like Mike Lee, etc., and sign on to the Trump-Ryan-McConnell compromise on health care and pass it with Trump signing this newest version of socialized medicine. Republicans love socialism just as much as Democrats, and they ALL have enriched themselves via socialist redistribution schemes. So, no more ObamaCare, but hello RethugliCare.

It’s amazing how the people of the Left and their mainstream media flunkies have been obsessed with this Russia-Russia-Russia narrative, just because they hate Donald Trump. The whole Russia witch hunt is based entirely on fake news, it’s all made up. And I’m not a Trump supporter as readers of this blog know. And the reason the government groupies of the mainstream media hate Donald Trump is all to with political correctness! They hate him with a passion because he has said some tasteless things that were said to be “sexist” or “racist,” even though he is clearly not a racist. (He might be a “sexist,” but I would say it’s just that he’s old-fashioned, nothing wrong with that.)

So it’s all based on political correctness and things he has said, and not really his policies. The mainstream media snowflakes don’t even understand that on those particular social issues Trump actually agrees with them. And I have pointed this out before, in which he has pro-gay marriage, affirmative action, and he supports transgender bathroom switching. In other words, Ted Cruz was right about one thing, Trump is about “New York values.”

And while Trump is bad on other issues, such as immigration, the drug war, and military-worship and foreign interventionism, the Left and media don’t care about those issues. They care about things Trump says, and as long as he says politically incorrect things, that’s what matters.

Speaking of the Left and all that stuff, Salem Radio talk host Dennis Prager was quoted as tweeting, “The news media in the West pose a far greater danger to Western civilization than Russia does.” And he got a lot of flak for it.

I’ve heard Prager on his radio show quite a lot assert how “morally superior” the West is. However, the governments of the West have not been morally superior, they have acted immorally. For instance, when the militaries of the U.S. and Europe targeted civilian population centers for death, such as Tokyo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and Dresden during World War II, and their many other atrocities. These Western governments have mass-murdered many more millions of innocent human beings than Islamic terrorists have killed, it’s not even close. (But sadly, it’s too politically incorrect to point out those truths.)

Or when the U.S. government started a war of aggression against Iraq in 1991 for no good reason, bombing and destroying civilian water and sewage treatment centers and imposing sanctions to intentionally prevent the Iraqis from rebuilding and thus their having to use untreated water, talk about sadistic and evil. The U.S. police state engages in so much evil, from starting two new wars of aggression after 9/11, the bureaucrats’ due process-destroying Patriot Act, evil torture of innocents, spying on innocents, spying on their own fellow innocent Americans without suspicion, and as I mentioned in my previous post, “asset forfeiture” a.k.a. theft, robbery, thuggery, hooliganism, etc. But the conservatives defend all that with blind, unthinking obedience. It’s hard to take Dennis Prager, Michael Medved, Hugh Hewitt, Mike Galagher, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity et al. seriously.

So I just wanted to conclude that another good thing besides Sean Spicer resigning would be Robert Mueller resigning as special counsel on the Russia-Russia-Russia “investigation” i.e. witch hunt. Mueller is a long time friend of former FBI director James Comey, and many of the lawyers Mueller hired for this practice of injustice are Clinton-Obama Democrats and Democrat donors. So the whole thing will be biased. It’s thoroughly disgusting.

And I don’t want the Congress to impeach Trump because that will give us a President Full-Blown Neocon Warvangelical Mike Pence. He would be much worse. At least Trump is doing something good by shaking up the Establishment in some way, and he is playing the media like a fiddle, easily getting them to expose themselves for who they really are. Trump’s policies suck, but at least those little things count for something.

What a Shame the Corrupt, Police-Statist Sessions Won’t Resign as AG

Attorney general Jeff Sessions says today that he has no plans to resign, following Donald Trump’s public criticism of Sessions in his recusing himself regarding the Russia-Russia-Russia investigation. That’s too bad. We can do without a thieving crook fascist as attorney general. He wants to strengthen so-called civil asset forfeiture. That is, government police and prosecutors stealing from innocent people their cash, not even charging the victims with crimes, just stealing their money away from them. That is why I call Sessions a “thieving crook fascist” without hesitation.

According to the WaPo, “A 2015 Institute for Justice report found that between 1997 and 2013, 87 percent of the Department of Justice’s forfeitures did not require any criminal charge or conviction.” Jeff Sessions is a former prosecutor. I think he has some loyalty to his fellow prosecutors and all the government police I’m sure he helped to loot the public. These government bureaucrats really don’t believe in the “rule of law,” as they constantly brag.

Speaking of police, Becky Akers writes of the latest episode of police hysterics, in which a lady called government police, thinking they would help her son who had just broken up with his girlfriend. Here’s a shocker: the government police came over and shot the guy dead. (Hmm, that sort of thing never happens!)

Becky writes:

This time, it’s a young man depressed over breaking up with his girlfriend. He retreated to his bedroom, explaining to his parents that he wanted to be alone. But his girlfriend had already called the cops because she was “[c]oncerned about his state of mind.” Mistake #1.

Mistake #2: “[His mother] felt certain the police would help her son. The great-granddaughter of a small-town police chief in New York, she said she has always felt safe around police.” Meanwhile, his poor dad not only talked to the cops when they called, per the girlfriend’s request, he later phoned the thugs again. You won’t be surprised when I tell you the police of Hingham, Massachusetts, sent a small army, including a SWAT team, to “help” a guy who only wanted some solitude for his broken heart. An all-night siege ensued, I kid you not. As the article’s headline puts it, “His parents said he just needed to sleep. A SWAT team came instead.”

In the meantime, never, never, never, NEVER call the cops. NEVER. NEVER. These homicidal maniacs will kill you and your family soon as look at you.

Some of the talk radio personalities I listen to absolutely worship the government police, mainly because they worship government, a.k.a. the State, in my view. There is nothing that government’s armed “men in blue” could do wrong or that gets criticized by the conservatives. As commenter “Donxon” wrote in Robert Wenzel’s blog regarding government police planting drugs to criminally frame innocent people, “What is it with conservatives and cop-worship? It’s juvenile and silly, like a 6 year old being obsessed with Spider Man.”

Yup.

Repealing ObamaCare, and Asset Forfeiture

It appears that the newest revision of the Republicons’ “Repeal and Replace” of ObamaCare does not have enough votes in the Senate. So now they are considering a full repeal and not replace, a repeal which they already voted on in both houses and sent to Obama who vetoed it in 2015.

Yes. Repeal ObamaCare. The problem is, however, that if the repeal passes and Trump signs it, they will delay it for two years. So they can figure out a “replacement plan.” Sorry, but just replace it with freedom. No delaying the repeal, please, because there’s no reason to delay the repeal.

Repeal it now, root and branch, and just let the insurance companies, medical patients and consumers, doctors and hospitals all make their own adjustments. They can and will do this, and more people will have what they want in health care and afford it, if you meddlers in Washington would just get the hell out of their way!

But no, the control freaks want to have a “plan” in place. Well, excuse me, but every one of your government plans sucks, and destroys what you are intruding yourselves into. Just look as bankrupt Social Security, Medicare, and everything else from the drug war to the Iraq war. You people in Washington really suck at everything you try to do, because it is not your place to get yourselves involved in health care, retirement planning, or nation building.

No more government plans, please.

And also in the news was the ignorant attorney general Jeff Sessions, who is actually worse than Janet Reno, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, and John Mitchell combined. Sessions is bragging about wanting to increase “asset forfeiture” thefts of innocent people by police and DEA/FBI/ATF thugs. Doesn’t Sessions understand the ideas of due process and presumption of innocence? This neanderthal ignoramus is a vicious drug warrior, is totally opposed to free market capitalism when it comes to immigration, labor, and employment, and he wants government police to steal from people who have not been convicted of anything. And worse, he wants to steal from people for acts that are totally peaceful, non-crimes such as involving drugs, in his fascist drug war. I hope he is impeached or fired by Trump because this Sessions guy is incredibly ignorant and his policies are as un-American as you can get. Perhaps replacing Sessions with Judge Andrew Napolitano would be a good idea? Sessions really needs to read the U.S. Constitution, because I don’t think he has ever seen it.

What Is “Offensive” or Unacceptable And What Is Not, In Civilized Society

My previous post was about the Orwellian “Ontario Human Rights Tribunal” who ordered a landlord to pay $12,000 fine for his act of “discrimination” against a Muslim tenant because the landlord didn’t take off his shoes when entering the apartment.

When something like that happens, an act of utter injustice against an innocent person like that landlord, perhaps the landlord-victim ought to immediately have the complainers charged with harassment, and endangerment as well. Reporting an innocent person to the government for some non-crime or non-issue (“discrimination”) is exposing that innocent individual to possible deprivation by government of his liberty and possible theft of his finances, as we have seen in that case. The victim might also consider having the members of that government board charged with theft or extortion in their stealing $12,000 from him.

Another example, as I have mentioned here before, is the same-sex couples who sue bakers who don’t want to bake a cake for their same-sex wedding, or florists who don’t want to make flower arrangements, and so on. In the cases I read about, the same-sex couple was easily able to find a different baker or florist who would provide services for them, but they sued the initial ones anyway.

People do not have a right to force or order someone else to do extra labor to serve them. If a baker doesn’t want to bake a cake for you, that’s too bad. In those cases in which the couple sues the baker $150,000 to punish him, that baker should immediately have the couple charged criminally with extortion and harassment, because frankly that’s what that is.

This “discrimination” crap is getting so out of hand now. The SJWs particularly of the LGBT variety are very selfish and narcissistic, in which the whole world revolves around them, you must do what they say or else, and if others don’t accept their lifestyle then such acceptance must be forced on them by law.

Another related issue is local bureaucrats and law enforcement catering to political correctness and their fear of offending people. For example, the San Francisco subway authority won’t release videos of crimes being committed against commuters, violent crimes such as assaults and thefts, according to Robert Wenzel. Releasing those videos could cause a “racially insensitive commentary” and “create a racial bias in the riders against minorities on the trains.”

Well then what is the point of having surveillance videos? How stupid is this? What these officials are doing is actively covering up crimes, they are literally committing obstruction of justice in the name of political correctness. The officials themselves should be charged with obstruction, and aiding and abetting of violent criminals. This obsession with “bias” and “race” is endangering the lives of innocent people now, this obsession with how or what people might think about others based on race.

Whatever happened to Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream of viewing others not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character? What people are doing today is the opposite of what Dr. King believed. They are paranoiacally obsessed with race and skin color, and other superficial things that don’t have actual importance in life.

Now, regarding the violent crimes in the city (or outside of the city), if most of those kinds of crimes are committed by black people, then why don’t you tell them to stop committing crimes against innocent people? And sure, there are plenty of white people who commit crimes, but the numbers of black people committing crimes are higher than those committed by white people.

And please don’t call me a “racist” for pointing out facts. Unlike today’s “liberals,” I actually care about minorities or people of color.

If we want today’s young people to stay out of trouble and to develop a respect for others, it would be helpful to them if the government would stop legislating the young people’s entry-level employment opportunities out of existence, as Walter Williams just this week once again pointed out, using the minimum wage as an example. When bureaucrats impose or raise a mandated minimum wage for entry-level jobs, many employers can’t afford to pay their entry-level workers such higher wages, so the employers cut the jobs entirely.

Walter Williams, the author of Race and Economics, noted that unions have for decades been scheming to use minimum wage laws to lock black workers out of higher paying jobs. And George Reisman showed how minimum wage laws force low-skilled workers to have to compete with higher skilled workers. The government and its evil bureaucrats pit this group of people against that group, one against the other.

And besides the minimum wage, other regulations, tax-thefts, etc., are imposed on businesses by bureaucrats that make it more difficult or impossible for black entrepreneurs to even start a business.

As Jacob Hornberger wrote, “Imagine how many black entrepreneurs in the inner cities could start up businesses if there was no minimum wage law. They could start up the business by hiring black teenagers in the area at, say, $5 an hour. Everyone would benefit — the teenagers, the business owners, and the consumers. Alas, owing to minimum wage laws, we never see those businesses come into existence. It’s what libertarian economists Frederic Bastiat and Henry Hazlitt termed the unseen consequences of government programs.”

Besides wage and price controls and business regulations and fees imposed by greedy, power-hungry government bureaucrats, the racist drug war also makes it difficult for young black youths to get their foot in the door. By the way, the racist drug war is being imposed and operated by bureaucrats, Democrat and Republican, white and black, Asian and Hispanic, bureaucrats of all colors, shapes and sizes. Bureaucrats are very evil, they are criminals, in my view.

As Ron Paul pointed out, yes the drug war does have racist origins, and it is still being carried out in a very racist way, mainly against black people. Dr. Paul has called Donald Trump and attorney general Jeff Sessions’s stepping up of the war on drugs quite authoritarian. (But not alcohol that is perhaps the preferred drug of Washington’s elites. They MUST have their booze!)

Legalize all drugs, because this nanny state stuff is ridiculous and is really hurting the country. The nanny state drug war is teaching Americans that they need not take responsibility for their own actions and decisions. Mommy and Daddy gubmint will decide for you what you may or may not ingest in your own body!

Speaking of responsibility, it would be helpful for the “black community” to discourage all forms of violence, and to raise their children to have respect for others. You know, remind them that stealing is immoral? Remind them that initiating aggression against others is unacceptable. Aren’t mothers doing that with their kids anymore? And if not, why not?

And also, how about discouraging drug usage, and ostracizing those who are involved in drugs, are taking drugs or dealing or selling them. And encourage that young males either use birth control or if they get their girlfriends pregnant then marry them and be a husband and father. Take some responsibility for your life, for heaven’s sake.

We Shouldn’t Mock the West As Very Orwellian Now?

This article on WND begins:

Canada is now fining its citizens for offending people of the Islamic faith.

John Alabi, 53, is a Christian and a landlord who lives in the Toronto area and is being ordered to pay a fine of $12,000 by the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal because he failed to remove his shoes when he entered the apartment he was renting to a Muslim couple.

His crime? Religious discrimination, according to the tribunal.

The tenants were planning to move out of his rental home, and he says he gave the couple the required 24-hours notice that he would be showing the apartment to another tenant.

So, the owner of the property is violating the tenants‘ “human rights” because he didn’t take off his shoes? His not taking off his shoes is “discriminating“!

Was he guilty of a “microaggression”?

Where will all this end?

You know, eventually microaggressions and discriminatory acts will be when people complain about others trespassing on their own property. If someone such as “squatters” decide to take over someone’s property, the owner can’t complain. If he does, that’s “discrimination.” That’s a “microaggression.”

A white person goes into a store to buy stuff and scares a snowflake because of his being a white person, that’s “discrimination” and a “microaggression” that’s violating the snowflake’s “human rights.” The snowflake has a right to sue the white guy, or even bring criminal charges against him of “terrorizing.”

If a Jewish person goes outside wearing a yarmulke and causes a Muslim to be terrified, that’s a microagression. Take off the yarmulke, or you’re under arrest.

If someone complains against a drunk driver for crashing into his car, that’s a “microaggression” against the drunk driver. Drunks have a right to drive recklessly and crash into others’ cars. (Or pedestrians.) Dare not discriminate against drunks or other “persons with disabilities.”

And if an individual is assaulted by another and goes to the police to report the assault, that’s also “discrimination,” and the complainer should be arrested for violating the assaulter’s human rights. And yes, I really believe that we will eventually see this kind of Orwellian crapola. Will certain people of certain races or religions have a “right” or a “human right” to assault others or do whatever they want? And yes it will matter what the people’s skin color or race or religion is, based on the past discrimination and other crimes by people in the past, such as slave owners, etc.

Or am I way off on this?

Soviet Amerika Created by the Alleged Anti-Commie Government Goons and Spooks

This past week Donald Trump has been in Poland. Please stay there, we’re better off with him there, anywhere but here. The conservatives on talk radio have been defending him like they would with Ronald Reagan. Well, even though I disagree with Trump on just about everything, I do appreciate his manipulating the mainstream media into exposing their true beings from within their drug-burned brains. They are bending over backwards to expose themselves as partisan hacks.

Now, I’m not a collectivist and I don’t believe in group identity politics, but I can say that most of the media are not for telling the truth, for getting the entire who, what, where, when, why, how, etc. Their news coverage is agenda driven, and now it’s to the point of lying and making stuff up, such as the “Russia-Hacking-the-Election-Russia-Trump-Collusion” lies.

It’s made up, but many of them in the media actually believe the “Russia-Hacking-the-Election-Russia-Trump-Collusion” lie  because that is what the top intelligence people have told them, despite the lack of evidence to prove those assertions. I’m not even sure the people in the intelligence community actually believe it. And that is because they themselves are agenda driven. Supposedly the G-men and spooks are fixated on the Commies-Are-The-Enemy narrative, but some people don’t particularly believe their sincerity because the NSA, FBI and CIA are aware of the CIA’s (and others’) ability to hack or manipulate a computer device and leave the cyber fingerprints of others to blame (such as Russians) for the hacking.

I wonder what the conservatives and talk radio dittoheads have to say about Donald Trump’s sending federal agents or FBI/ATF goons in to local districts to enforce local or state laws, such as gun laws. Adam Dick writes about the feds now helping Chicago and other districts in confiscating “illegal guns.” I wonder what all the anti-gun control pro-2nd Amendment conservatives think about all that.

The Posse Comitatus Act is supposed to restrain the military from getting involved in local law (sic) enforcement, but should there be some sort of rule against other federal goons from engaging in such local “enforcement”? When we have federal agents roaming the streets in Amerika, and if you support that, then you may want to re-read Article III Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution, which defines Treason, referring to mainly those who would turn the guns and enforcement apparatus against the people of the states, including the kind of unconstitutional Chicago gun-grabbing about which Adam Dick writes.

And what could possibly go wrong with such a policy? After all, this current President Donald Trump thinks that eminent domain is a wonderful thing, he believes in central planning on steroids, government-controlled trade and universal health care, he won’t touch entitlements, and he’s a militarist warmonger despite all his rhetoric in 2016. So why should we assume that his pro-2nd Amendment rhetoric in 2016 was actually sincere?

Unfortunately, I think that the conservatives’ love and adoration for armed government authority and government police outweighs their alleged support of the right of the people to keep and bear arms. i.e. if there were a choice between having an armed citizenry and a disarmed government or an armed government and a disarmed citizenry, the conservatives would choose the latter.

And Trump called North Korea “dangerous,” yet, as Tom Knapp pointed out, while North Korea hasn’t invaded another country since 1950 (that being South Korea), the U.S. government has invaded and bombed many other countries and caused the deaths of millions since then. But the True Believers in “American Exceptionalism” think that’s okay. The U.S. is above the law and the U.S. government can act lawlessly and murderously with impunity. America is God’s chosen nation and it rules the world. Get those gooks, Donald. Right?

And what a government we have in Washington, with only a few members of Congress supporting legislation to ban the U.S. government from arming and funding terrorists, as Alice Salles writes about regarding the Stop Arming Terrorists Act, sponsored by Rand Paul and Tulsi Gabbard. In the same way that we could put Planned Abortionhood out of business, and other rackets, we could end the U.S. government’s welfare for Boeing at al. by repealing the 16th Amendment, as well as the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and the Revenue Act of 1913. (By the way, 1913 was a very bad year, in case you didn’t know.)

Once this country had allowed the federal government (or even state or local governments) to demand payments from the people without any voluntary contract, and made such transactions involuntary, then you have legalized and institutionalized theft and the enslavement of the people and their labor.

The Latest in Twilight Zone Amerika

It’s amazing how worked up some people are getting in reaction to Donald Trump’s tweeting. His tweets directed at Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough were hysterical, in my view. And his cartoonish video of him beating up someone in a business suit with the CNN logo superimposed like Trump was beating up CNN — oooh, that’s bad. That’s so “unpresidential.” (Grow up, as Joan Rivers would say.)

Some people post or write something “offensive,” but when people on the left do the same thing, that’s okay? But now, Kathy Griffin got criticized for her depiction of Trump with his head chopped off like she’s an ISIS follower. I had no idea who Kathy Griffin was until this. And the “Shakespeare in the Park” play Julius Caesar depicted Trump as being assassinated. On Salem Radio, Mike Gallagher was fuming over that, and he suggested that maybe such a play shouldn’t be allowed or protected by the First Amendment.

No, of course that’s protected speech. It’s just a dramatization, Mr. Gallagher. No need to panic. No need to be a snowflake. I think that maybe Gallagher is a little more sensitive than the average talk radio personality. In fact, just today he was talking about his miserable little schlep of a dog, Rory with all her medical problems. I think he mentioned installing a wheelchair ramp for her. I feel bad for that poor dog.

Speaking of tweeting, Justin Raimondo retweeted Ann Coulter retweeting a “sadfleck” tweet about Vice.com disabling archiving services of their web pages, including the Wayback Machine, which Vice says are “right-wing archiving websites.” Vice is doing this as part of their “taking a stand against Racism, Bigotry and Islamophobia.” They explain that they are doing this because those writing about Vice, citing and linking to Vice articles for criticism and so on are doing so without giving Vice “a chance to update, remove or edit” their Vice articles i.e. removing the evidence against them that people are citing to show what irrational morons they are.

Vice expresses concern about “Xenophobia, Racism, and Sexism,” that is, how people think and what people believe about this or that, but I don’t see much on Vice.com about Donald Trump’s (formerly Obama’s) drone bombing in Yemen and Syria and Iraq mainly murdering innocent civilians. And when it comes to Muslims, on Vice’s homepage I see an an article titled, “Young Muslims talk about the first time they got wasted.” So articles mainly about sexual deviancy and drugs. It’s not a “news and commentary” website, obviously.

Frankly, I couldn’t care less about what ignorant things people think or say about race or other group identities. People have a right to freedom of thought and conscience, and a right to think and believe whatever they think and believe, even when we think they are wrong. The authoritarian fascists on the left don’t seem to understand that. However, there are a lot of authoritarian fascists on the other side who get all emotional if someone burns a flag or if Christians get discriminated against in “public schools.” (The answer to that last issue is to de-monopolize and privatize all the schools. Duh.)

So, while I think that ignorant people have a right to think or say something about me because of my being white, they don’t have a right to actually do something to me based on that. And the same thing goes with my being Jewish. I just heard Hugh Hewitt on the radio this morning promoting an event he is doing with Dennis Prager, “Ask a Jew.” I don’t know, whatever. I guess Prager is an expert on all things Jewish.

Speaking of all things Jewish, Walter Block has this article today asking all the Jews worldwide to vote in the Israeli election (apparently, anyone Jewish can vote in this election, even those outside of Israel) for libertarian candidate Rafi Farber for the Knesset. Farber is a Rothbardian and an “anarcho-libertarian,” according to Walter Block. But I digress.

Back to Hugh Hewitt, Dennis Prager and the other Salem Radio talk show personalities. Unfortunately, while those radio talkers criticize the people on the left such as the aforementioned Vice and CNN as irrational and authoritarian, they themselves are quite authoritarian. In fact, I think that all the Salem talk hosts are more authoritarian, militaristic and police-statist in their views than other “conservative” radio personalities such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. (I listen to them all, I can’t stand them but I listen to them, because I’ve been a talk radio addict since the 1980s, oh, well.)

To them, “patriotism” is synonymous with authoritarianism and militarism, it seems to me. When Colin Kaepernick didn’t want to stand for the Pledge of Obedience, and when Gary Johnson pointed out a moral equivalence between Syrian civilians killed by Assad (or ISIS) and civilians killed by U.S. forces (such as in their bombing of a civilian hospital), Michael Medved and Hugh Hewitt were literally huffing and puffing.

One might make a slight exception for Larry Elder in the Salem talkers’ authoritarianism, such as in his promoting genuinely free markets in health care as Rand Paul has been trying to do. The other Salem radio hosts have been promoting RepubliCare, the current bill that attempts to replace socialized medicine with socialized medicine. (Hugh Hewitt has been the worst propagandist pushing this RepubliCare. He is ghastly, in my view.) But Larry Elder is a very big supporter of government police, and is just another neocon. In this post Charles Burris shows Larry Elder’s recent “Prager University” video, “deceptive and disingenuous” “Pravda-like neocon propaganda” as Burris puts it, a video which asks if JFK would have been a Democrat or a Republican now. Burris explains how this picture of John F. Kennedy as a Cold Warrior at his death was not accurate, as JFK had become much more pro-peace, promoting talks with Russia and nuclear disarmament prior to his death.

A lot of these neocons say they’re “pro-life,” yet they endorse targeting innocent civilians for death, such as the atom bombing of Japan as well as the fire bombings against civilian populations during World War II and other times.

Here is a recent article by former U.S. State Department diplomat Peter van Buren discussing the civilian deaths caused by U.S. government aggressions throughout the Middle East as well as World War II and Vietnam and elsewhere.

In my view, the True Believers in “American Exceptionalism” are conditioned to rationalize murder and mass murder as “collateral damage,” or other propagandish terms. As mentioned above regarding the killing of civilians in Syria, the rationalist True Believers are moral relativists. (i.e., if you really believe in absolute morality, then you’d believe that it’s immoral to target or kill ANY innocent human beings, period!) Such True Believers are just as brainwashed in their ideologies of authoritarian State idolatry as the millennials and the people on the left seem brainwashed in their ideology of race obsession, gender obsession, ethnicity obsession and homosexuality obsession.

Too bad those on the left do not seem concerned about our government’s slaughter of innocents abroad over the years as they are concerned about “racists” and “sexists.” (I guess that lack of concern is why they are “pro-choice.”)

And finally, speaking of neocons masquerading as libertarians, it seems that Austin Petersen is leaving the Libertarian Party and running for U.S. Senate as a Rethuglican. Good riddance, as far as I’m concerned. When he ran for President as an LP candidate, Petersen said that he would enforce all laws on the books, even those he disagreed with. Well! It’s nice to see someone of principle running for public office! He also promised to cut spending across the board by a whopping 1%! Ooooh, 1%! Talk about dedicated to the taxpayers! And he says, “Allow young people to opt out of Social Security.”

No, the real libertarian position is to abolish government-run Social Security and the involuntary confiscatory taxes to run such a racket. (Thank god for that “right-wing” website, the Wayback Machine.) Petersen also says that he’s against the non-aggression principle. Hence, a Rethuglican. I’m glad he has seen the light and has left the Libertarian Party (which sucks enough as it is, quite frankly).

Just one last thing about the Libertarian Party, there is a New Hampshire state representative who has announced his switch to the Libertarian Party, bringing the total number of LP members in the NH House to three. But it is not a full-time job there as it is in other more parasitic states. The Reason article states that the new LP member, Brandon Phinney, works in the “Carroll County Department of Corrections.” Yech. You know, Brandon, it would help the libertarian cause if so-called, self-described “libertarians” didn’t have actual employment by the government. Especially being a part of the whole apparatus that locks up innocent people for disobedience, i.e. disobeying unjust laws inflicted by the nanny state, the police state, and the regulatory state. Can you find something less loathsome?

What’s Trending in College and Society Today

The trends toward intolerance and fascism on college campuses are a part of society as a whole now. Centralization, bureaucratization and the politicization of education and other aspects of life have had negative effects.

In my view, the decline in the quality of education can be traced back to the imposition of the federal Department of Education. Education has literally become a part of government, starting with “public schools” which are really government-run schools. And so society in general has become a part of the government.

And at today’s colleges, many of their administrators and professors are just “Social Justice Warrior” robots, it seems. They aren’t exactly thinking people.

Sadly, the main goal of today’s SJWs is more government control over more aspects of life, including education, health care, housing, the environment and energy, as well as government control over other people, particularly those of a different viewpoint or who live a different lifestyle than the average college professor or administrator.

I think that the widespread hard-drug usage in academia for several decades has taken its toll on professors and administrators and is a partial explanation for their irrationality. The irrationality of the college elders is absolutely rubbing off on the youngins. Sending your kids to college now is like sending them off to one of the many USSA Soviet-like government agencies for indoctrination.

But the indoctrination really starts in the local government schools, the indoctrination of government worship, which has intensified even more since 9/11. Many people were caught up in the government’s post-9/11 fear-mongering and propaganda that was repeated word-for-word by the mainstream media stenographers on a daily basis. And as I have noted previously, I’m sure that being a kid growing up in post-9/11 with all that fear-mongering and propaganda is not helpful in developing a sense of reality and common sense.

So now we have the college “snowflake” phenomenon, in which many students are so fragile and delicate that they can’t emotionally handle hearing different viewpoints or just plain words or phrases that refer to the most innocent thing.

Besides the effects of fear-mongering, propaganda and government-worship in education, the prescription drugs — anti-ADHD, antidepressants, anti-psychotics, etc. —  that many kids are being given now have a negative effect on their brains, on their neurotransmitters, and the drugs affect the young people’s moods, their thinking abilities and choices.

And the vaccines that kids are given are also having a bad effect on the brain, quite frankly. As Dr. Julian Whitaker pointed out, “American infants and children are recommended to receive 14 different vaccines, administered in a whopping 49 doses, all before age six. Forty-nine!” And all that is in addition to the junk food, processed foods with food dyes and other additives and preservatives kids (and adults) consume on a daily basis that affect people’s thinking and their moods.

So, in my view there are good sociological and chemical explanations for the irrationality on the college campuses these days, and among “adults” in society in general.

More recent examples of college irrationality: As Campus Reform reports, a Trinity College professor shared a Medium article suggesting that white victims of shootings should be left for dead, because they are “bigots.” The professor who shared the article wrote comments such as, “It is patently clear we black folks in U.S. have no rights that the white supremacy governing apparatus is willing to protect.”

It is unfortunate that college campuses all across America have so many ignoramuses such as this one “teaching” the young people. Obviously the professors are just as brainwashed as the young people now about race.

I really don’t mean to pick on some ol’ professor, but many of them are like this. And by “them,” I don’t mean “black professors,” I mean those of ALL races and ethnic heritages, black, white, Asian, Hispanic, etc.

Look, professor, if you want to talk about “supremacy,” what we have in America now is government supremacy, not racial supremacy. Activists and organizations pray to the government to do this and that for them, at other people’s expense. And as far as his statement, “we black folks in U.S. have no rights that the white supremacy governing apparatus…” the real supremacy is actually what many black people have been supporting: the government, whose policies such as minimum wage and regulations are used by the government supremacists to keep black people at the bottom of the economic ladder.

And we now have “diversity administrators” at colleges and universities. Not diversity in thought and ideas, but diversity in skin color and ethnicity. What matters to people of irrationality are superficial aspects of people, like their appearance and gender. (But I thought that those things were not supposed to matter. Nope.)

As far as thoughts and opinions go, the hystericals nitpick on little words or phrases that someone might harmlessly utter. For an example of that kind of irrationality, there was a “diversity conference” recently, in which the attendees discussed “implicit bias” in people’s thinking, such as in hiring for jobs. Implicit bias is said to be responsible for phenomena such as the “average height of a male Fortune 500 CEO (being) above the average height of the typical U.S. male,” according to the College Fix.

They’re nuts, as far as I’m concerned.

And regarding the nitpicking aspects of this “triggering” crap that most people would have thought totally absurd when I was in college 35 years ago, the University of Florida wants students to take into account the “emotional risks” of an event. Students have to now worry about “‘sensitive subject matter,’ ‘reaction of participants,’ and ‘potential controversy’,” according to The Blaze.

I am not. Making. This. Up

And speaking of accusations of “white supremacists,” the irrational kooks at Linfield College in Oregon are calling their college’s chapter of Young Americans for Liberty “white supremacists” and “terrorists,” according to Reason. Now events that were to be held by those free-thinking youths are being cancelled by the college’s “diversity” fascists. The main crime was their setting up a table with a “free speech ball” that people could write on. Well, someone drew this supposedly alt-right frog character called Pepe, and, well, oooh, someone drew a god**mn frog! (Doh!)

As Walter Williams has said in several columns now, perhaps now is the time to stop sending donations to your alma mater. Ya think?

And the Orwellian protesters who call themselves “antifa” or anti-fascist are against freedom of speech and diversity in thoughts, ideas, and opinions. They believe in intolerance.

Outside the USSA, the U.S. government-backed Kiev city council has decided to rename a street after a Nazi who participated in ethnic cleansing activities during World War II. According to Ynet News, “Edward Dolinsky, one of the leaders of the Jewish community in Ukraine, said: ‘Is it possible to measure the depth of a moral decline? It is not easy when there are cases where the decline is so deep that it cannot be measured…'”

Exactly, Edward. Just walk onto any college campus in the USSA now.

And speaking of intolerance, according to The Daily Sheeple, Germany is raiding people’s homes and stealing their stuff in the name of modern fascist intolerance. “It’s like some lessons are never learned. In a coordinated campaign across 14 states, the German police raided the homes of 36 people accused of hateful postings over social media, including ‘threats,’ ‘coercion,’ and ‘incitement to racism.’ The goal of these raids was the confiscation of the ‘hate posters’ Internet connection devices, according to a press release from the German federal police (BKA).”

So, not only in USSA are intolerance, irrationality, government supremacy, SJW brainwashing, and anti-free speech bigotry trending now, but in other countries like Ukraine and Germany as well.

There are no safe spaces now. I feel so triggered, I think I’ll go have lunch.

Bureaucratic Nincompoops And Their Obsession for Control

Wendy McElroy posted links to these two articles on her blog, Oregon wants to regulate flexible work schedules out of existence, and in Chicago a Proposed “Fair Workweek” would mandate predictable schedules, stable paychecks. Local imbeciles  in state and local governments who have never run a business now want to even more interfere in the marketplace and in employment. Who do they think they are, federal imbeciles?

As George McGovern wrote, “A politician’s dream is a businessman’s nightmare.” (George McWho?)

And it’s the same thing now in the health care debate, in which the Republicons are channeling their inner Mao in their craving for control as they just can’t bring themselves to actually repeal the ObamaCare monstrosity. But finally, now we hear Donald Trump tweeting, as I have been saying, just repeal the damn thing now and worry about “replacing” later.

No, don’t replace it. Repeal all the other regulations, tax-thefts and intrusions that government has been forcing on the American people that have driven the costs of health care way up.

But no, everyone is obsessed with his other tweets that insulted Mika Brzezinski’s facelift(s). Did ObamaCare pay for her facelift(s)? Anyway, I’m glad he does that, because I need a good laugh from time to time. And Charles Krauthammer and other high-and-mighties who think Trump’s insults are undignified or “unpresidential” are the same ones who think that Trump “finally became President” when he unnecessarily and criminally bombed Syria (criminal? Aiding and abetting ISIS?)
