NPR goes full 1984

The official State radio station that we’re all forced to subsidize put out this little piece of Orwellian propaganda on its website:

“If you’ve stripped enough context away,” NPR chosen expert Jaime Settle said, “any piece of truth can become a piece of misinformation.”

Truth the regime doesn’t like is “misinformation.” These people have no shame in their lust for absolute power. The fact that millions of Americans cheer them on as they turn Twitter, Facebook, Google, etc. into their de facto “ministry of truth” is frightening.

Record low numbers for MLB all star game

MLB famously decided to move its midsummer classic from a majority black city to a majority white city to show how much it cares about black people. Except that makes no sense. The real reason was because their commissioner wanted to suck up to Democrat politicians.

Well they had record low viewership last night Hopefully they’ll get the message that acting as a propaganda outlet for one of the major political parties is not good for business. Or maybe, like the tech firms, they don’t care and will just double down so that the left wing press will tell them how great their sport is now that no one watches it anymore.

At least they seem to have dropped most of their COVID theater. For now. Let’s see what happens next time the politicians ratchet up their fear campaign.

Media keeps the fear going

We’re all supposed to be scared of the dreaded delta variant so there is a push among public health “experts” to mask up again and remind everyone that this is super scary and we all have to care what these “doctors” have to say on CNN or Yahoo News.

Some state and local politicians also want people to remember who they are and how they’re so important and that they may require you to muzzle your face or close your business or whatever else happens to help Democrats and it’s for your protection!

Luckily I think the momentum has swung in the other direction and those people who think ramping up the fear porn this summer is good politics will be sadly mistaken. At least in most of the USA.

God help Europe. And Australia. And Canada. And California. Hopefully the insanity at least stays out of America this time. I’m all in favor of Calexit.

Cops murder teenager in Arkansas

See the source image

We’ll have to wait and see what comes of this investigation, but it appears this may have been an instance of a cop being way too nervous about a routine traffic stop. So he killed a high school kid for the crime of exiting his vehicle which scared the officer. No word on what race the cop was.

Anyway, I believe now is when we’ll see the BLM protests, the condemnation from Biden and every other Democrat, the pearl clutching on MSNBC and CNN, and of course riots in every major city.

Oh wait, no. We’ll likely never hear about this again after today. This is just a “local story” after all. Maybe if you live in Little Rock the local Fox affiliate will follow up in a few months to let you know that the shooting was justified and the family of this kid will get a big settlement at taxpayer expense.

White people not allowed to participate in climate activism?

Apparently a New Zealand climate activism group with some loose link to Greta Thunberg has disbanded itself due to racism in its rank.

One of the major talking points on climate change, which will slowly take the place of COVID as the hysteria the media pushes to increase State power, is that it disproportionately affects people of color. Because as we must remember this most holy of national holidays that no one ever heard of until 2020, Juneteenth, EVERYTHING BAD DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTS PEOPLE OF COLOR, BUT SOMEHOW BENEFITS THE EVIL WHITE SUPREMACISTS!

This raises some interesting questions. Will white people be allowed to participate in climate activism moving forward? Are white people going to be told that they somehow benefit from climate change, but they need to fight against it, while letting the BLM types run all the protests and excluding them? Is that really going to be a winning argument in favor of draconian restrictions enforced by the government (still made up mostly of white people by the way) in the name of keeping the climate exactly how it is right now? Will the “science” still look all sciency when it’s wrapped in an anti-racism bow?

Can the State and its media propagandists keep track of all the contradictory lies they’re going to have to tell to move this thing forward?

Did government agents play a role in January 6?

Tucker Carlson is raising the issue on his show. Apparently there are a number of “unindicted coconspirators” named by prosecutors in the case against the attackers of the Holy Temple of Democracy on January 6, 2021. He may be jumping to conclusions to some extent to assume these were FBI agents, but as he points out, the FBI has been running these types of operations routinely against Muslims for the past two decades. That’s established fact. One of the main plotters of the phony plot to kidnap the governor of Michigan was also an FBI informant.

I would be willing to bet the FBI had infiltrated these groups that stormed the capital and these unnamed people are likely either government agents or assets. The government and their media allies will certainly make it difficult to get to the bottom of this. It remains to be seen if we’ll ever find out their level involvement in the actual capital riot and other events of that day.

This is further evidence of how useless Trump was as president, even if you agreed with his professed objectives. His own FBI was successfully attempting to infiltrate and probably entrap his biggest supporters in an effort to discredit his political movement. He was of course completely unaware of any of this. He did nothing to drain the swamp during his four years in office and continually employed deep state career bureaucrats who hated him in key positions. Even if you think the MAGA agenda was just what the USA needed (I personally think some was good, a lot was bad), Trump was completely unable to deliver on any of it. No one should be supporting his future political ambitions at this point.

Backlash against tyranny

I’m not exactly trying to justify the storming of the Capitol Building because I think it’s counterproductive and I don’t actually support it. The State will use it to further punish dissent.

But it’s worth understanding why it happened.

The number one issue is the lockdowns. In their never-ending lust for power, the ruling elite in this country has stripped millions of people of their livelihoods, their friends, their extended families, and any other outlet to focus their energy on (sports, entertainment, church, etc.) People have become isolated and super focused on politics. Many in DC right now probably think they have nothing to lose and (mistakenly) believe Trump is their only hope. All this to unsuccessfully fight a disease that mainly affects the sick and elderly. Some kind of blowback from this disastrous policy was inevitable.

People have lost faith in our elections. In the name of fighting COVID most states completely overhauled the way their citizens can vote. Millions of more ballots were cast than ever before, most through the mail. This was ripe for abuse and fraud and half the country, rightly or wrongly believe this election was stolen.

The Deep State has been trying to undermine Trump since before his inauguration. They accused him of being a Russian agent based on lies, locked up many of his trusted allies, and even impeached him for a phone call where he asked for an investigation of someone who was already being investigated. His supporters obviously don’t feel their choice for President was ever given an opportunity to govern.

The Media, Democrat party (or do I repeat myself) and Hollywood has spent the last 5 years telling half the country that they’re stupid, racist, deplorables because they didn’t support the policies preferred by our ruling class. Not exactly a message intended to bring unity.

And finally, the Media, Democrats, and Hollywood all celebrated left-wing violence throughout the summer in the name of fighting racism. They shamed and in some cases prosecuted people who tried to protect themselves. If you support one mob, don’t be surprised when another mob forms to fight back.

Trump’s legacy

It sucks. Here were his big 3 issues:

Less immigration: He did nothing to limit it in any significant way. If it does slow down it will be because governors have destroyed the economies of the states most attractive to immigrants. It won’t be because of anything Trump did.

Trade war with China. It doesn’t matter what tariffs or other policies that were, or were not implemented. China seems to be open for business and has moved on from COVID. Meanwhile, trump allowed Fauci to convince local politicians to implement policies in the USA which have shut down much of the economy. China is in a much stronger position relative to the US than it was when Trump assumed office.

Ending the wars. He hasn’t ended any. Troops are still in all the countries they were in when he was inaugurated.

So basically it was a disaster. He allowed his political enemies to institute totalitarianism on a level never before seen in the USA while not following through on any of his campaign promises. He also killed even the idea of fiscal responsibility once and for all. We now have unlimited spending/inflation as the standard operating procedure of government.

Were there any positives? Yes.

He exposed the media for the propagandists they are. Half the country refuses to believe anything they say and that’s a good thing.

He refused to escalate the situation in Syria and avoided a large war that would have involved Russia and Iran.

He convinced the right in this country to be antiwar. Let’s hope that lasts.

Is there anything he can do over the last few weeks to make his legacy slightly better? Yes.

Pardon Snowden and Assange. Pull all troops out of Afghanistan.

Will he do anything over the last few weeks that make his legacy slightly better? Not likely.
