But not letting someone earn $1,000 to survive is even more obscene

The Guardian remains true to form as ever – clueless about reality.

The author of this piece, Richard Denniss, forgets that the reason mice die in mousetraps is they fail to understand why the cheese is free.

An extra $1m may not be much to a billionaire but $1,000 to someone who can’t survive without it is way more obscene. And governments that imposed draconian laws on people who could least afford it based on junk science and activist health experts drunk on power, are even more out of line.

There is a precious irony in Denniss’ attack on the billionaires. If he took note of who the biggest mutual beneficiaries of lockdowns were, he would see that many of those same billionaires made the extra millions by hopping into bed with left leaning parties who openly supported the destruction of small businesses executed under the guise of compassion.

Still, it is easier for him to blame conservatives than admit that the ultimate impact lockdowns had on human lives by way of suicide, poverty and unemployment came from policies heavily promoted by the left.

55% of Japanese think America deteriorates under President Biden

A Mainichi Shinbun poll of 70,000 people revealed that 54.8% of Japanese think that America will get worse under Biden. 30% think it will improve. 9.5% think no change. 5.7% don’t know.

Many comments for the negative revolved around being the new administration’s position on China.

Some comments made by citizens of a country that is steeped in social Aikido were as follows:

Obama did nothing, except to say only pretty things. Instead of doing something, he allowed the development of North Korea…Was there only Biden for the Democratic Party? Will it respond resolutely to China and North Korea? How the United States is involved with a strong country also affects Japan.

—-

A president who joins hands with China will not make the American people happy…It may be convenient for some people, but it could be more painful for the majority of people…On the other hand, for Japan, whether it is Biden or Mr. Trump, it is judged that the severe situation will continue…Independence!”

—-

The idiot who sees Biden Jump and says it’s democracy should start over in math…A rotten and deadly president.

—-

“I wonder why Trump was rejected even though he didn’t make so many mistakes. I wonder as a Japanese. The hurdles for the Biden administration’s policy have risen. For Japan, it is necessary to establish a system to protect the country as a Japanese.”

—-

The day when American justice and democracy died.

—-

Mr. Trump will surely be back. May the deep state and Satanistas come to be revealed. Save the poor souls of many victims.”

Seems like President Biden and PM Suva have a lot to discuss.

Where would we be without taxpayer funded media?

Where would we be without taxpayer-funded media? Senior counsel at PBS, Michael Beller, suggested that children of Trump supporters should be sent to re-education camps.

He has since been fired.

Maybe he’ll get a role in Biden’s DOJ? Biden’s new civil rights pick is big into eugenics. Seems to tick the ideological boxes.

Impeachments vs Pardons

As the Democrats move to impeach Trump for a second time for “incitement of insurrection” we could be mistakenly led to believe that to Pelosi, Schumer & Nadler, every saint has a past and every sinner a future unless they’re Republicans.

The Democrat Party seems to be fond of terrorists, thugs and criminals. A brief, but not exhaustive history.

Back in 1983, Susan Rosenberg was sentenced to 58 years after being convicted of a plot to assassinate Republican senators with a pipe bomb outside the US Senate chamber.

Among other things, Rosenberg was suspected of helping Assata Shakur escape from prison in 1979. Shakur assassinated a New Jersey state trooper and now lives in exile in Cuba. She was also involved in bombings and several executions of cops in New Jersey, New York and San Francisco.

House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, implored then President Bill Clinton to commute Rosenberg’s 58 year sentence. Clinton pardoned her in January 2001.

Susan Rosenberg is now the vice-chair of the left-wing Thousand Currents group, which handles the administration of the donations made to Black Lives Matter.

One of the BLM founders, Alicia Garza, has repeatedly talked about Assata Shakur as one of her main inspirations. Nice to look at cop killers as mentors.

Remember when Democrats labeled Donna Hylton as one of “America’s most impactful community leaders” in a segment about the Constitution during the 2020 DNC?

Donna Hylton was known as inmate #86G0206 for 27 years. She was convicted of first-degree kidnapping and second-degree murder in the slaying of real estate broker Thomas Vigliarolo along with six other accomplices.

He was brutally tortured – burnt, beaten, starved, testicles squeezed with pliers, a three-foot metal bar up inserted in his anus – and eventually stuffed in a footlocker to decompose. Amazing what lengths one must go to become a community leader. Three feet apparently.

VP-elect Kamala Harris, said that she was “proud of Jacob Blake when she visited him in hospital. At the very least we have to say her messaging is consistent. After all, she backed the Minnesota Freedom Fund which bailed out criminals, some charged with murder, rape and child sexual assault. Jacob Blake’s father is an anti-Semite. It is amazing what makes an “incredible family” in America these days. 

Maybe that is why she could show pride in Jacob Blake, who resisted arrest, fought with police officers (including headlocking one of them), ignored their instructions repeatedly while returning to his car for a weapon. He also was arrested in the past for brandishing a firearm in a bar while drunk, carrying a concealed firearm inside a public building, battery, assault, domestic violence and had an outstanding warrant for sexual assault and trespass.

If the Democrats didn’t have double standards they’d have none at all. Never mind all the Democrats who openly supported rioting, defunding the police and physically attacking anyone in Trump’s cabinet. It’s not the principle but the side that matters.

Whites need not apply?

Yet more of the Biden agenda to unite all of America. Instead of helping all those who run small businesses based on the level of individual economic hardship, race and gender will be the new determinants.

So in short, if you’re an a relatively unaffected minority run-business you will be favored for support over an on death’s door multi-generational white business.

Which boxes will ensure the maximum subsidies? Is it best to be an illegal immigrant who is also a coloured LGBT woman of Islamic faith with a disability?

Welcome to the world of identity policy. Imagine if the Democrats hadn’t so feverishly supported the BLM riots which ended up destroying so many minority owned businesses that such a policy wasn’t required to be drafted in the way that it has.

Liberal logic. Stop systemic/institutional racism by setting up structures that guarantee it thrives.

Capitol Hill riot now likened to Kristallnacht & Pearl Harbor

What is it with polarized politics that causes people to make comparisons using yardsticks which are completely unfathomable? So much so that it ends up trivializing major tragedies in the process.

After the despicable, but clumsy Capitol Hill riot, Senator Chuck Schumer compared it to a “day in infamy,” the very words FDR pronounced at the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Seriously? Are a bunch of unorganized mugs overestimating their agency in anyway on a par with Imperial Japanese Navy fighter pilots killing thousands?

Now Trump-hating Arnold Schwarzenegger has made a video comparing the events of Jan 6, 2021 to Kristallnacht in 1938. Are a bunch of unorganized mugs overestimating their agency in anyway on a par with the 4 million strong Sturm Arbeitlung of Nazi Germany? Seriously?

We are surprised that Schwarzenegger or Schumer didn’t make mention of the 20+ lives lost during the BLM/Antifa protests which were ideologically more disturbing for the aggressive manner in which history has been erased. A far better example of groups who don’t care about democracy.

We were surprised they didn’t speak of all the decent law enforcement officers who were maligned, beaten and in some cases murdered, like retired police chief David Dorn.

We are surprised that they didn’t mention the thugs waiting out the front of the White House who physically assaulted people, including senators who were leaving a Trump rally. Precious little display of democracy there.

We wonder why Arnie couldn’t see how the original cause of protesting the death of George Floyd morphed into something that extended to punish, destroy, assault, murder, loot, burn and crush those that didn’t conform to the Marxist manifesto of BLM or any other grievance du jour? Just bash innocent people.

How could he have missed so many leading Democrats pushing to defund the police and encourage rioters? Incoming VP Kamala Harris said, “protestors should not let up“. Don’t forget she was a big supporter of the Minnesota Freedom Fund which helped bail out alleged child sex offenders and other felons.

Speaker Pelosi said, “people will do what they will do.” Rep Ayanna Pressley proclaimed, “there needs to be unrest in the streets!”

Unfortunately, Schwarzenegger said that we need leaders who have a “servant’s heart.” Those that will put public interest above their own. Fat chance finding it in people like Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who apart from being the third most powerful person in the country, represents a district that has some of the highest rates of poverty in America.

There is one area we agreed with Arnie – wishing Biden the best of success for his administration. That would be a welcome change to the last 4 years where the left leaning media and political machine of the Democrats have done their utmost to delegitimize Trump’s presidency.

We also don’t think Biden tweeting that the outcome on the Capitol would have been different if BLM were the perpetrators instead of Trump supporters is the stuff that builds unity. That type of race-baiting division suggests harmony is a long way off.

Schwarzenegger needs to go back and study history again. He might refresh his memory and consider Big Tech censorship as a modern day form of book burning where the removal of people’s rights to free speech undermines the very democracy he emphatically demands be protected.

How do you like dem Apples?

How is it that Twitter has survived for so long allowing violence, vitriol and hatred on its platform yet Apple and Google chose to do zip about it? We know the answer.

However, when a conservative alternative is deemed to have ‘broken’ the rules, Apple comes down like a tonne of bricks. The rank hypocrisy.

Apple has never suspended Twitter from the App Store when hateful and violent bile has been and continues to be spread.

Kathy Griffin retweeted the image of a bloody decapitated head of President Trump (the one that she was desperately sorry for in 2017) the day after the election result was called by the media. Almost 10,000 retweets, 64,000 likes and a laundry list of hateful replies. Is this not violence?

Or a more recent tweet from Griffin,

Look, you stupid bitch, go throw your dad that BJ he wants and then walk him out of the White House and the Presidency forever. Force him to resign immediately. twitter.com/ivankatrump/st…

Of course some will argue she is a comedian (a terrible one at that) and therefore deserves a pass on distasteful content as it is an art form.

Still, doesn’t suggesting that Ivanka perform fellatio on her father violate community standards? If anyone (including a comedian) suggested one of Obama’s daughters perform oral sex on her father, Twitter would censor it (appropriately) and the mainstream media would run with it for days lambasting this despicable behaviour and go out of their way to cancel the offender.

John Henson, host of Food Nation, tweeted, then deleted,

“I hope Barron gets to spend today with whoever his dad is.”

Is slut-shaming FLOTUS fair game? Is making fun of a minor appropriate? Even if people delete tasteless tweets, why isn’t Apple demanding that Twitter take stronger action and threaten to suspend it from the App Store until it has dealt with people who violate community standards?

What we find particularly sinister is the way Big Tech is flexing its muscles and bullying companies they have ideological differences with conform to their moral code. Maybe Apple should demand a seat on the board of Parler to approve its decision? It would be one thing if Apple put Twitter in the penalty box as well but alas, corporate double standards are a thing. It is not the principle that matters, but the side.

Why doesn’t Apple suspend Tinder from its App Store until it deals with the countless cases of sexual assault? In a survey conducted in Australia, 48 out of 400 Tinder users claimed they were a victim of sexual assault. Of that, 11 claimed they had a formal response from the company.

Isn’t Apple big on supporting #MeToo? It has an entire series, The Morning Show which deals with sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry. So it is happy to make a buck off content that relates to inappropriate sexual behavior but not be prepared to stand up for real victims who get hurt by apps like Tinder where Apple’s very own words to “adequately address these proliferation of these threats to people’s safety” isn’t extended.

Spare us the double standards!

Stop Press: Now Amazon has piled in to dump Parler from its web services.

Welcome to the dystopian nightmare. Black is white. Freedom is slavery. War is peace. Got it?

Clowns to the bitter end

The Party of Unity has decided it wants to move to impeach Trump or declare the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office.

Despite Trump saying he’ll ensure a transfer of power on Inauguration Day, the Democrats revealed their true colours again. They know neither is achievable but will stage the theatrics anyway for posterity to say they did their best to dump Trump.

Vying for the title of world’s biggest hypocrite, Speaker Pelosi said, “The president of the United States incited an armed insurrection against America…The gleeful desecration of the U.S. Capitol, which is the temple of our American democracy and the violence targeting Congress are horrors that will forever stain our nation’s history.

We’ve already said our piece on the despicable act. Where was Pelosi when so many anti-Kavanaugh protestors stormed the Capitol?

Wasn’t it Democratic Rep Maxine Waters who openly incited people to attack members of Trump’s administration?

Wasn’t it Pelosi who turned a blind eye to all the destruction left in the wake of BLM protests by saying “people will do what they will do“?

Wasn’t it Democrat Rep AOC encouraging the drawing up of a blacklist of those who served Trump in order to publicly dox them?

In any event, with two weeks to go, why put America through yet more nonsense? If anyone is in more danger of failing to comply with the mental instability edicts of the 25th Amendment, it is Nancy Pelosi.

Welcome to a preview of the kind of juvenile antics before Biden has even taken office. We doubt America voted for more of this nonsense.

Facebook locks Trump’s account. Unelected tech giants more powerful than elected leader of free world

Yet more social media cowardice. Facebook has blocked Trump from posting on the platform at least until he leaves office.

Regardless of one’s opinion about Trump, we never knew that social media giants exerted more power than the democratically elected leader of the free world.

Take one of Trump’s banned video tweets on Twitter yesterday. Apparently telling protestors To ‘Go Home in Peace’ was banned on the basis it was a “risk of violence

Is that protecting democracy? By silencing an elected president? Since when did social media giants self appoint themselves as guardians of American democracy and domestic security?

What if America was at or on the verge of war? Would Twitter and Facebook block presidential posts they didn’t ideologically agree with and place bans? It is irresponsible beyond belief.

These platforms need to lose Section 230 immunity. Under the Democrats that is not going to happen.

This will only worsen.

Votes of War?

The recent US election has thrown up every conceivable conspiracy theory with respect to illegitimate activity. Fake ballots. Dead people. Ballots hidden under tables. Republican observers sent home while ballot counts continued in the wee hours of the morning. Rigged voting machines….now counterfeit ballots printed and shipped from China?

So it appears that in the process of shredding ballots, several boxes were left behind. Patrick Byrne, Founder of OverStock said the unshredded ballots were confirmed to be counterfeit. More disturbingly, a receipt for shipping from China printed in Chinese was found on the side of the boxes.

Another wild conspiracy? If not so, wouldn’t such direct election meddling by a foreign power constitute thorough investigation? If proven true, such an act would be deemed an act of war, no?

Where is the media coverage? Of course it is nowhere to be found.

They were only too happy making Watergate + alpha conspiracy theories based on a selective edit of Trump’s call with Georgia’s Secretary of State Raffensperger. If Trump was truly wanting to cheat, why would he request “the truth” during the call as the best outcome for all and end the leaked tape with “thank you” and a mutual agreement to have their respective attorneys touch base at a later date? Never let the truth get in the way of a good story. Alas, 99.9% of people won’t bother to listen to the hour long tape and accept the deliberate misleading reporting by left wing media outlets. Where have we seen this before?

Typical.
