The Stars and Stripes in Hong Kong

Stunning to see many protesters in Hong Kong waving the Stars and Stripes and singing our national anthem. In Hong Kong! Seems they understand what the Stars and Stripes stand for. Equality for all. Something that some folks here do not understand.

I am actually scared for those people in Hong Kong. I think China, the monolithic state that it is, will hurt the protesters.

I pray for them.

Oh Sheet

I rhetorically asked my wife the other day, I wonder who Jeffrey Epstein pissed off? My wife immediately replied that he was a criminal. I replied what he did was normal behavior in the circles he traveled in. The conversation quickly went downhill from there and I dropped my line of logic.

The man was a player, the biggest house in New York City. The biggest house in New Mexico. His own private islands, an apartment in Paris. A fleet of jets and helicopters. And as many women as a Hip Hop star. He was reported to be incredibly smart, and hung out with the best of people.

Did Trump just say he is a pervert, and to go after him. Or did he screw up and somehow piss someone off. I dunno. Anyway they popped him into jail.

Bloggers said he was going to get suicided. Then it happened. People in the know said that the sheets were made of paper, precisely so people could not suicide themselves. So when the press said he hung himself with a sheet. Yah right. Suicided.

Another unionized facility in a Democrat district. Clarity indeed. So figure some professional thugs took him out. Dead or alive? So far no autopsy. Jeffery was not just any pervert. He was a real smart pervert. Just a guess, but Jeffery had information that some people would want to keep quiet. I am sure that they have already gone though all his computers. So I would also have to presume that Jeffery had a certain amount self preservation built into his methods. As a self identified brilliant person he would certainly try to outsmart any sort of thuggish behavior directed his way.

Was it simply a case of justifiable homicide. Or a professional rub out to cover for someone else’s misdeeds. Will Jeffery speak from beyond the grave with some sort of deadman switch? Would he then be worth listening to? I have no clue.

Covering (Up) The Truth

The media likes nothing more than a mass shooting. Two in one weekend? Ah, their joy in pontificating assigning blame, and then issuing commandments. Such an unbelievably good weekend for the propagandists. “Trump’s white supremacist followers are shooting and killing innocents” they instantaneously pronounce. It’s a tragedy.

It is a bit early, and there are still known and unknown unknowns in the story. After just under a week a few things have come out. The first shooter allegedly left a manifesto that describes himself as a socialist that dislikes immigration. what seems like an unlikely combination does have a historical precedent. By no stretch would that person be considered a Trump supporter or follower.

The second shooting of the weekend may have been a reaction to the media reporting of the first mass killing. The many reports that a Trump supporter had killed Mexicans may have caused misguided retribution. Social media postings by the second killer indicated that he was a member of Antifa. Violence against Trump supporters is the primary reason for Antifa. Unsurprisingly the press may have triggered violence. Sometimes I wonder if that is their goal.

Unfortunately when the press glorifies violence all I can do is an eyeroll. My words are pretty much unread. I am prejudiced as a deplorable and therefore unworthy of thoughts by some. To point out violence is to be banned. Look what happened to Mitch.

Ironically I was disturbed by the Democrat candidates reaction. They spoke from Las Vegas. They were there speaking at a union convention. Las Vegas is the home of the largest mass shooting in recent history. So many unknowns in that shooting. The killer was dead. No social media history, supposedly there were missing hard drives. The only “witness” traveled to Mexico before appearing on the Ellen Show. Pretty much appeared to be a union assisted cover up. My only real recollection of the Vegas shooter was his brother saying “he was no white supremacist”. If he were living in a polarized world, that would make the the killer a liberal.

In a strange subjugation there is a move that is supposed to come out next month called The Hunt. It is purported to be rich Democrats hunting and killing Trump supporters. So far nothing is known of any plot twists. Incredibly President Trump came out and said that the movie is racist. Not knowing the plot how would he know that? Maybe because all of the rich Democrat killers are white?

Just another unknown.

The Shaheen Show

Next week President Trump is coming to New Hampshire. This should be fun. Vice President Mike Pence was supposed to come last month to talk at the Granite Recovery Center with Senator Jeanne Shaheen about the opioid problem in the state. However Vice President Mike Pence canceled at the last moment.

The reason Mike Pence canceled his trip to an opioid treatment facility? Chief Development Officer Jeffrey Hatch at the opioid treatment facility  Granite Recovery Center, was under investigation for distribution of fentanyl.

It appears the guy in charge of the treatment facility was a major dealer.

Within a couple of weeks he pleaded guilty to distributing 1,500 grams of fentanyl.

Governor Chris Sununu said he was surprised by what appeared to be a light sentence of up four years and $250,000. I am sure more than that was spent on the treatment center.

Senator Shaheen said she was incredibly disappointed that trust was betrayed.

This is not good for her, drug rehabilitation has been a centerpiece of her administration. In the past President Trump has called New Hampshire a drug den.

In the past I have heard that Governor/Senator Shaheen was enabling the drug trade. Such rumors did not come from the right either.

White Noise

I am white, so anything I say is considered by some people as nothing more than noise. Because I write unscripted, some people probably consider me a supremacist. So here goes. If you watched the debates, I agree with Maryanne, it’s a dog and pony show. That’s what she called the white noise that was the Democrat debates. As a participant she would know. Genetically incapable of knowing or understanding simple truths, most of the participants traded in lies and hate. I paid some attention, but it just devolved into noise, and in the end, I was incapable of paying attention.

Say what you want, but that is the difference. Unlike the others Trump is genetically incapable of telling falsehoods. He tells it as he sees it. In many cases truth hurts. Viva la difference. I have now gotten my ideas on genetic variation out of the way.

We live in a society where fascism has run amuck. Most people are incapable of independent thoughts. This is nothing new, it has been that way for quite a while. To be educated is to have the ability to repeat what is presented as truth. Analytics typically is not part of the equation. This is the loophole used by those in control. I am not saying our government is fascist, just our society.

World wars happened not that long ago. It is my belief that wars happen because of people using new technology to gain power over others. Today people are attempting to control communications to gain power. This is today’s wildcard. We shall see how this plays out.

Hollywood has major influence on what a majority of people in this country think. Strange how people in Hollywood are people who pretend to be people who they are not. Is it a genetic trait to pretend to be others in their desire for fame?

Politicians have a major influence on what most people do. Unsurprisingly most politicians tell people what they want to hear. A typical politician uses polls, some just have a natural talent to tell people what they want to hear, or in some cases what to think.

So what we have is a confluence of people pretending to be something they are not, saying what they think we want to hear, all being communicated by people who want control what is thought for perceived gain. That is why what I hear is white noise.

Maybe they are projecting. I think that they are simple truths. Here are a couple more simple truths that cannot be told.

Trees like Co2. There are a lot of bad things in the air, however trees like Co2. I simply can not understand why the “Green” party does not like Co2. To do so is to not like trees.

The Pledge of Allegiance ends with “with liberty and justice for all”. To eliminate the pledge, and what it stands for is to embrace fascism. Laws are what protect us as individuals and give us our rights. To advocate the dissolution of these laws strips us of our self evident rights. It’s an evil dark force that wants us to be unequal. Equality of citizens is one of the things that makes our flag unique.

So what is with craven embrace by a large portion of the population of all that is ill in society. Beats me. They think they are smart. I do not know whether to pity them, and conversely should pray for them. For their minds are truly damaged. Or maybe I should just smile and nod, as I do believe that the light will shine. Or I could just write down my thoughts, as they are my thoughts. Not the thoughts of others. Yes, in this day and age I have my own thoughts. I guess that is rather unusual. Or unable to change I could just be white noise.

Actually things are getting better. It is not that hard for me to find news that I agree with. The disturbing thing is news that I do not agree with, has a tendency to advocate violence.

The Fab Four

I am talking about the four congresswoman who are in the news. Young and charismatic, they have an immense following. They seem to be constantly in the news. They consider themselves to be the progressive squad. Although they do not represent me or my district, they have a definite influence. My local congresswoman absolutely beams when she is in their company.

My initial view was that they are just a flash in the pan. I paid little attention to them. They did not seem to know simple math. However the media loves them, and I mean the media on both sides. The Fab Four takes so much air time that there is little room for real news. They have become the face of the progressive agenda.

Over the weekend President Trump trump trolled them on Twitter, hard. Really hard, it is what he does. Now I pay no attention to what people say on Twitter, however I sometimes pay attention to reactions.

So Monday I tuned into The Five, my favorite news show. It is a show with five thoughtful news anchors with different points of view, and they always have one liberal commentator. I do want to listen to the designated liberal, for they typically have a tough job to logically argue their point of view. I no longer listen to CNN, NPR, MSNBC and others. I do want to listen to the voice of an alternative point of view. I get It with The Five. It is not my intention to silence an alternative point of view.

By design or coincidence the Fab Four scheduled a news conference at five. Of course The Five have their news show at five. I presume that by having a news conference the Fab Four wanted to elevate the Trump Tweets to Prime time. Amazingly what we saw was the Fab Four unfiltered, by either positive or negative media coverage. I presume that was the intent of the obviously trolling Trump tweets. Unfiltered coverage of the self described Progressive Squad.

As I watched I agreed with few things they said. what they displayed was simply hate on parade. The press loves these people? I do not understand. Though I do have my explanation that I will get to shortly. I do understand that the Fab Four are duly elected, and represent their districts. Their point of view is the point of view of many people, and they have influence. Being young, they will probably have influence for many years. So it is good that we get to listen to their voice unfiltered.

Young and charismatic, like the Beatles, the Fab Four have a huge and loyal can base. However that is not why I call them the FAB Four. FAB is actually an acronym for “Fascist and Bigoted”. Simply said.

Trump tweets are really rather sophisticated. They are designed for reaction. For example, if the word country was replaced with district the offending tweet would have been a lot more logical. However it would have had nowhere near the reaction it did. As a logical question it would have been ignored. By calling a district a country it emphasizes the importance of the district. The job of representatives is to take care of their districts, or their own little country. The FAB Four have forgotten that. All they care for is personal aggrandizement. President Trump pointed that out with a simple tweet.

Dark Energy

As there is dark energy in the universe, there is dark energy in politics. I guess dark energy in politics may be more popularly known as the Deep State. I am not sure if that is correct, as the Deep State is sometimes referred to the unelected bureaucrats making decisions. The dark energy that I refer to is an external influence to the political process.

Because dark energy is not a part of the process, it is not part of the political record. Therefore it is hard to track. I will admit that dark energy effects both parties. I will briefly talk about two sources of dark energy in politics.

The second largest charitable foundation in America is the Soros funded Open Society Foundation. It is somewhat known that they are very generous when it comes to buying politicians. The official line is they are promoting their values, but the reality is they are just buying politicians. Obviously they are not the only ones buying politicians, they are just the biggest spender.

Totally unreported in any media is the influence of Richard Trumka. He is the president of the AFL-CIO. I Googled to find out who he is. I am sure he must have an influence on the machinations of union influence in politics.

it is a bit surprising that someone who would probably have huge influence on politics is so unknown. A bit of Googling was interesting, and scary. I will leave a bit I found on Wikipedia. Richard has a story that he tells about a match. He suggests that if you light a match, you will get burned. He claims that he is not making a threat, just stating a fact.

In my world a match is struck for light, and warmth. Not pain. To deny light, well that is darkness. Yes, there is dark energy in politics.
