Thoughts of the Day - You must hate X

* If you question climate change, you must hate the environment.
* If you question Common Core, you must hate children.
* If you question Obamacare, you must want sick people to die.
* If you question welfare, you must not care about the poor.
* If you question open borders, you must be a bigoted racist.

* If you question our beliefs, you are a heretic and must burn.

Thoughts of the Day - The Most Bigly Man in the World

He can make blue states blush red. 

The media questions him because they secretly find him interesting.

The Chinese come to him for wall-building advice.

Out of respect for him, illegals deport themselves.

He created so many jobs, illegal aliens came from all over the galaxy.

He once apologized, just to see how it feels.

If he were to mispronounce your name, you would feel compelled to change it.

His golf courses brought peace to the Middle East.

His Cyber Wizard son, Barron, fixed education with only 56K dial-up.

He gave up his billion dollar life, just to run for President.

He is, The Most Bigly Man in the World.

Make America Great Again, My Friends.

Most Bigly Man in the World

Thoughts of the Day - The MAGA Movement

Back in February 2009, when the nation was still figuring out how to climb out of the Great Recession, President Obama announced to a joint session of Congress his plans for healthcare reform. The timing was peculiar. Unemployment was still very high. Companies were still recovering. How much would this cost? How would it impact businesses?

In September 2009, the Tea Party movement was born to protest the excess government spending and government takeover of health care. The Obama administration promised, "If you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan". Instead of addressing the concerns of citizens, the administration and the mainstream media labeled the Tea Party as racist.

Ron Paul ran for President in 2012 riding the wave of government skepticism. The Middle East wars expanded with Libya and Syria. That's right, the Nobel Peace Prize winning President expanded war efforts in the Middle East. Government spending remained out of control. More importantly, unemployment remained stubbornly high. Unfortunately, the RNC established a petty rule to prevent Ron Paul delegates from nominating him (see Rule 40).

Years later, the concerns of the Tea Party were justified. People lost their health care plans. Deductibles went up, not down. Costs continued to rise while quality decreased. The Obamacare architect admitted that the key to passing the bill was "lack of transparency" and "the stupidity of the American voter". This would only fuel the citizen's resentment and lack of trust in government. The IRS added additional fuel to the fire. The IRS intentionally targeted tea party groups applying for tax-exempt status with intensive scrutiny.

You may notice some common themes back in 2012 that are relevant in today's times. The mainstream/fake news media established a narrative that anyone opposed to the Obama/Clinton team were racist, misogynist, terrible people. The Establishment Republicans do not care for conservative grassroots movements and will happily work with Democrats to screw over the citizens. Finally, you see a civil war in government agencies between American patriots and those for shadow governments that are above the will of the people.

The Tea Party movement has transformed into the MAGA movement. Mike Cernovich asked people at the Bull Moose Party, "Why are you here?" We are here because of a journey that started back in 2009. We believe in what the Founding Fathers wanted in America. People joined the MAGA movement at different times, but we all share the goal of Making America Great Again.

Below is a list of the main players I see that are currently shaping the MAGA movement.

Wise Elders
1) Donald Trump/Steve Bannon
These two represent the heart and the soul of America. The movement would be dead and Hillary would be President without both of them. Read the Art of the Deal and you will understand how Trump works. Read about Andrew Breitbart to learn about how Bannon views media.

2) Stefan Molyneux
He wouldn't categorize himself as part of any movement, but he is still an important figure to listen to. Freedomain Radio is the largest philosophy show in the world. Facts, reason, and evidence are the key pillars to a civilization. His talks with the next person I'm going to mention are my favorites.

3) Vox Day
Science fiction writer, video game designer, and publisher. A student of economics and history. He understands human dynamics very well, showing how spineless so called conservatives are (read his book Cuckservative). They haven't conserved anything. Be ready to have your whole worldview tested, he does not hold back.

4) Scott Adams
He also wouldn't categorize himself as part of any movement, but he correctly predicted the rise of Trump. A trained hypnotist, he understands humor and persuasion. Persuasion, not facts, rule the political domain. It would be foolish to ignore his advice.

Big brothers
5) Mike Cernovich
Lawyer, film maker, author, and journalist. A jack of all trades similar to Vox Day. He also does not hold back. Like Scott Adams, he also predicted the rise of Trump. His blog Danger and Play covers a multitude of topics. His book Gorilla Mindset is a must read to understand the human mind, how it works, and how you can optimize it.

6) Alex Jones
Ironically, I'm giving him the title of Big Brother when he's been fighting against big brother for decades. He has always been for the common man and against government overreach. He has a nonstop motor, wanting to inform people about the globalist agenda and hoping to see mankind elevate themselves. 

7) Sargon of Akkad
While not a supporter of Trump, he is for finding truth and against media hysteria. He is a classical liberal (a believer of individual freedom) and loves ripping apart the anti-individual arguments of social justice warriors.

In Memoriam, Andrew Breitbart. He stood up for the Tea Party and defended them against the MSM narrative. He was not afraid to take on the corporate media machine. He died too young. Fortunately, Steve Bannon is carrying the torch in his spirit.

Young Rockers
8) Milo
When I think of Milo, I think of the Joker with a conscience. He gets under the skin of social justice warriors with laughter as his weapon. His college tour was very important in the fight for freedom of speech and thought in college campuses. 

9) Paul Joseph Watson
Part of the Alex Jones InfoWars crew, PJW is a heavy hitter exposing the Left's hypocrisy like Sargon of Akkad and Milo. He rails against politicians, celebrities, and media pundits. He has a very big presence on both Twitter and YouTube delivering truth bomb after truth bomb in his videos. 

10) PewDiePie
Like Sargon of Akkad, he is not a supporter of Trump. He stays very apolitical, but understands the power that media has to destroy lives. In addition, he is humbled by the support of his fans and does not cater to special interests. With 54 million subscribers (many of which are teens), he is an influential force for future voters.

The young rockers have a big influence on the youth vote and are heavily engaged in the culture war. Their efforts will have a long lasting impact.

Thoughts of the Day - Envy

Socialism is more than just an economic theory. Andrew Breitbart used the term Cultural Marxism. I'm going to take it one step further. All these terms are rooted in the deadly sin, Envy.

What is Envy? I'm going to explore this question 2 ways. One is through Christianity. Note, I am no means a Christian scholar. The second way is through the anime, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

From Wikipedia, a common theme for Envy is a desire for another's possessions as well as a desire to see others fall. Envy is dehumanizing because it pits people against each other. Dante saw Envy as a sinful pleasure from seeing others brought low. In Dante's Purgatory, the punishment for Envy is having your eyes sewn shut with wire. Bertrand Russell said that "Envy was one of the most potent causes of unhappiness, bringing sorrow to committers of Envy whilst giving them the urge to inflict pain upon others."

Envy is so sinful, that it is 2nd behind Pride. "In accordance with the most widely accepted views, only Pride weighs down the soul more than envy among the capital sins." Tim Challies also talks about how Envy comes just behind Pride. "It’s crucial to understand that Envy flows out of Pride." Envy is Pride in a social environment. Pride has no meaning without a comparison to another person.

C.S. Lewis says, "Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man." Dorothy Sayers says "Envy is the great leveler: if it cannot level things up, it will level them down … rather than have anyone happier than itself, it will see us all miserable together."

This quote ties in nicely with the character Envy in Fullmetal Alchemist (FMA). He loves human misery, starting civil wars and ruining lives. In his true powered up form, he is the most grotesque looking creature. I bring up FMA for another reason. The deep dark underbelly of government in that story has many parallels to our government. People involved with the shadow government are involved in some disturbing practices to stay in power. And like the anime, these dark forces seek to become gods themselves.

The Left wants socialism because it is envious of wealth. The Left wants Cultural Marxism because it is envious of Western Civilization. The Left wants Atheism because it is envious of Christianity. The Left is very stealthy in how it undermines Christian values. It does so by exploiting values, turning strengths into weaknesses.

Kindness. "You must be tolerant. You must show compassion." Look at Europe. This is pathological altruism. People are sacrificing their way of life for the sake of kindness. Unprecedented numbers of immigrants are flooding into Europe. At what cost? Health care, education, social welfare are at breaking points. The police are overburdened with crime.

Charity. "You must give to the less fortunate." Notice how taxes increase yet the debt constantly increases as well? People pay more and more and get less and less out of the government. The welfare state has destroyed incentives to work because the payouts are so comfortable. People won't work if the welfare gives them a better life.

Justice. "You must support equality and fairness." Identity politics has polluted justice. In the pursuit of "social justice", the Left has resorted to favoritism. Equality means equal outcome. Everyone must be the same and have the same miserable existence.

Remember, Envy wants to see all of us miserable together. And the Left is infected with Envy.

Thoughts of the Day - Milo

Bad joke? Endorsement of pedophilia? Political hit job? Character assassination? Deep state?

There are many angles to analyze what happened to Milo Yiannopoulos. First, the infamous 4chan /pol/ board predicted the Milo scandal hours before it happens. When the videos surface, like clockwork, CPAC withdrawals Milo's Keynote Speaker invitation, Simon and Schuster cancels the publication of Milo's book, and Milo resigns from Breitbart.

We learn that Reagan Battalion was the group who took down Milo. This group endorsed Evan McMullin for President. So this group is part of the Never Trumper crowd. Milo was one of Trump's big supporters.

A week ago General Flynn, another big Trump supporter, resigned as National Security Advisor. Between the Flynn resignation and the Milo story, WSJ publishes a hit piece on PewDiePie, YouTube's biggest star. While PewDiePie is not political, he does have a large young audience. He's a man of great influence to the hearts and minds of the youth. Quite the coincidence all these events happened within the same week.

And now the reactions to the events that unfolded. First, the man himself.

Milo's Statement
Milo's Press Conference

Next, the social media giants give their take.

Sargon of Akkad Gives His Reaction (26 min)
Stefan Molyneux Gives His Reaction (46 min)
Mike Cernovich Gives His Reaction
American Comrade Gives His Reaction
Vox Day Gives His Reaction

My reaction? It was a classic media smear job. Look how quickly events unfolded. Lost in all this is the fact that Milo was a victim of child rape. This is the real tragedy. He was raped when he was 13. As American Comrade points out, Milo re-frames the traumatic experience as a tale of survival. Unfortunately as Mike Cernovich points out, the public did not know about this backstory. His joking manner about the subject of child sexual abuse just sounds wrong without the backstory. And even with the backstory, it is a poor way of dealing with the abuse.

I'm putting on my amateur psychology glasses. Here are some common victim behaviors of survivors of sexual abuse. Oftentimes, the victim will deny the incident because of humiliation, shame and fear. In Milo's case, he spins it. In an attempt at self preservation, he views the abuse as a positive. He feels responsible for the abuse and if the abuse is bad, then he is bad. Stefan Molyneux says similar things but in much more detail in his analysis.

Milo makes the fatal mistake of casting a general view of child sexual abuse based on his experiences. Because of that people can easily say that Milo excuses child sexual abuse. And that's exactly what the media smear campaign does. Because he does not immediately condemn the act after making jokes and positive comments about it, he's left himself open to attack.

I don't think he still fully understands just how destructive child sexual abuse can be. He himself says in his press conference, "I fell into alcohol and nihilistic partying that lasted well into my late 20s." But he doesn't mention anything else about the harmful effects of child sexual abuse afterwards in his press conference. Too much rationalizing, not enough true reflection.

And now for some Leftists who have said similar things Milo has said. And they just fine in the media's eyes.

George Takei
"I was at summer camp, 14 years old, and there was a blond camp counselor who was very tanned and good looking. His t-shirt was rolled up, and the hair on his forearm glistened gold. I made comment, and that was enough to cause him to visit me in the cabin. Oh myyy..."

Sarah Silverman
"Hey, is it considered molestation if the child makes the first move?"
Bill Maher
Says 2 things. He'd rather get molested by Michael Jackson than beat up by school bullies. And he makes the distinction that Jackson serviced them, not the other way around. As if that makes it all better.
Lena Dunham
Dunham describes using her little sister at times essentially as a sexual outlet, bribing her to kiss her for prolonged periods and even masturbating while she is in the bed beside her.
Salon Here Here And here

And the finale, Elijah Wood and Corey Feldman talk about how child sexual abuse is the biggest problem in Hollywood. Using Leftist logic, any celebrity that knows about the pedophilia going on but says nothing is guilty.

Thoughts of the Day - White Privilege

"You're a fucking white male!" If you don't know this quote you can quickly google the video. White privilege just means you have the privilege of getting the blame for the ills of society because of the color of your skin.

It means you have the privilege of getting shot at as you try to police crime ridden areas or while deployed oversees. It means you have the privilege of working in the burning heat or the freezing cold to maintain the infrastructure of the country. It means you have the privilege of making whatever sacrifices so your kids may have a better life.

Where was the privilege when people lost their health coverage and their doctors? Lots of privilege when people lost their jobs and left the labor force. And the privilege of all these problems and no voice to help them. Instead of hearing their cries for help, the media decided to lecture them on racism and privilege.

Look up the Harlem Renaissance. Yes, blacks were treated like 2nd class citizens back then. But despite being poor, Harlem was not crime infested. It was a vibrant scene of culture and art. There was not an epidemic of single mothers. What happened in the last century that destroyed black families and infested their communities with drugs and violence?

This is just one of many forms of cultural marxism. Pitting groups against each other to achieve that "utopia" of equal outcome. Because you have privilege, we must tax you for your privilege and give it to those with less privilege. To alter a quote from The Incredibles, "And when everyone's equal... no one will be."

President Trump hears the voices of the forgotten men and women. Which is why you see reactions of hope, relief, and joy from his supporters. But of course, the Fake News media will continue to dismiss his supporters and continue to lecture them. Must be nice having the privilege of destroying people's lives. Time for the media to check their privilege.

 "The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer"

Thoughts of the Day - PewDiePie

PewDiePie's Response (11 min)

News outlets attacking Felix Kjellberg aka PewDiePie just further demonstrate why they are dying. Internet personalities are built from nothing. It's a version of the American Dream to start from nothing and end up with something amazing. It's like the roaring 20s. A lot of new money was generated, yet looked down upon by old money. Old school media relies on status and reputation. They are today's elitist aristocracy and fewer and fewer people like them.

This quote from PewDiePie pretty much summarizes what a lot of people are thinking.
"They blatantly misrepresent people for their own personal gain, even viciously attack people to further themselves" (at 2:28 in the response)
The Fake News Media continues to slander and misrepresent. And then when people criticize them, they fall back on "we are essential. honorable journalism is vital for a democracy". That is a load of bull. They have become so snobbish and narcissistic, they don't realize how much they are hemorrhaging money. People don't like what they are saying.

PewDiePie has 53 million subscribers, a lot of which are kids (South Park did an episode about PewDiePie confirming this). The Fake News Media just made 53 million skeptics. And since the Fake News Media and Democrats go hand in hand, they have just made 53 million Conservatives.

Which confirms what Paul Joseph Watson said, Conservatism is the new Counter-Culture and Generation Z will end up much more conservative than my millennial generation (funny enough I'm PewDiePie's and PJW's age). So keep it up Fake News Media, I'll make sure to piss on your grave when you finally die.
