White Supremacists Have Freedom of Speech Too

Posted by Troy on 16th August 2017 in Current Events, Political

This is a key point that you must agree to if you believe in free speech.  I remember in the 1990′s, the KKK had a protest and they had to call out the National Guard.  I commented to my dad about the cost and how it shouldn’t be allowed.  He said that, while they are distasteful and want to incite people, they had freedom of speech.  Now we are talking about “should hate speech be illegal?”

Fact: this group had a permit to hold their demonstration.  A reasonable police chief would have blocked the area off, let them have their demonstration, and had them leave.

The fact that this was not how things went down leads me to believe that the mayor wanted violence.  Why?  So they could demonize Trump.  Bear in mind, his the same mayor that called his city the capital of the Resistance.

When the car plowed into those people, Trump denounced both sides for violence.  You can say he did not hesitate to call out terrorist attacks.  Well, when someone uses IEDs out in public, you can say, “I’ve seen this before…” and place a safe bet of Islamic Terror [you may be wrong, but it's still the safe bet].  This was more like if the Hell’s Angels had a clash with the Crips or the Bloods.  Crap, the shots could have been fired by either side.  Because let’s be honest… Antifa and Nazis are both fascists.

And let me just take a moment here for a pet peeve for all those people carrying signs saying “I don’t need your Nazi ideas!”  Yeah… like a welfare state and nationalized healthcare and abortion and euthanasia…

But let me go back to this… White Supremacists have the freedom of speech.  Banning any type of speech is NOT a slippery slope.  Once you make any kind of speech illegal, you are already sliding downhill uncontrollably.  As soon as you give the government the right to label speech “hate speech” and make it illegal, they can just call anything they don’t like, “hate speech.”  Speaking out about abortion is hate speech against women.  Want to secure the border?  Hate speech to immigrants.  Against single payer health care?  Hate speech against the sick or the poor.

Speech should not be illegal.  Thoughts should be shared and discussed with mutual respect and with clarity of thought.  I for one fear no speech as I can disarm any such speech with my own logic.  Even if I cannot convince the other party of my point, I can walk away in peace having heard their points and given my points.

Long Live the Constitution!

Of Charlottesville, Trump, Nationalism, and Hypocrisy

Posted by Troy on 14th August 2017 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

Everyone is jumping over Trump over not denouncing white supremacy.  Let’s have an HONEST discussion.

What happened in Charlottesville?  A group of reprehensible people (white supremacists) came in contact with an equally group of reprehensible people (the “antifa” movement).

Now, what would be the logical conclusion when you have two groups of moronic, single-minded, and violent groups who hate one another meet?  Gee…I wonder if they will clash?  Yep.  That’s what the hell is going to happen.  This is why a competent mayor or police chief could have kept the groups separated.  Of course, they didn’t.  Interesting.  It is almost as though they wanted violence.  Why would they want violence?  So they could link it to Trump.  Much like when protesters showed up at Trump events to instigate confrontations.  Regardless of what was said or who threw the first punch, it was because Trump inspired violence.

So why didn’t Trump call out the white supremacists?  You know… I don’t recall one time that Obama called out white supremacists.  Obviously, he loved the KKK.  Do you see how moronic the point is?  No doubt, the Black Panthers supported Obama over McCain or Romney.  And yet, no one demanded Obama denounce the Black Panthers.  Why not?  Well, on one hand, it is probably because it is obvious that a well-heeled person would naturally look down their noses at brutes such as the Black Panthers OR the neo-nazis–as the average politician looks down their noses at ALL of us.  As such, why bother asking someone to denounce them?  When was the last time someone was called upon to denounce child molesters?  YOU DON”T NEED TO DENOUNCE certain groups of people.  They are denounced by default.  The other reason is that, by forcing someone to denounce a group, you make them seem as though they are secretly sympathetic to that group.  As the man said, “I just want him on video denying having sex with a goat.”

Second of all, this was not an act of terrorism.  Sorry.  This is a crime.  An act of terrorism is done to affect the political environment and to make people scared to go about their day to day life.  On some level, it is a planned event.  This appears to be a murder.  This does not appear to be an act of terrorism.  It could be that the guy’s declarations will change my opinion, but murder does not naturally equate to terrorism.  Sometimes, murder is murder.  Someone that takes a gun into a school and shoots the place up is a mass murderer.  Someone that does the same thing shouting, “If you want common core, these kids are better off dead!” and kills the same kids, is a terrorist.  Get the difference?

I don’t remember anyone having an issue with Obama after San Bernardino, after Ferguson, after Baltimore, after Fast and Furious, after Benghazi, after they blamed the Tea Party for bombings time and time again or the shooting for Giffords, and on and on and on.  At every time where he demonized the cops when he had no information to go on.  When he referred to his grandmother…the WOMAN WHO BOTHERED TO RAISE HIM after his OWN father abandoned him as a “typical white woman…” not once did anyone question his racial bias.  Why is that?

So we talk about nationalism.  Well…what is a nation?  As words matter.  As definitions matter.  A nation is any group of people that identify with each other.  Isn’t it interesting that only one group seems to have a problem when they nationalize?  Black people acting as a nation?  That’s cool.  Native Americans acting as a nation?  That’s super mega cool!  LGBLT (kidding… LGBTQIA) Super Uber Fabulous Mega Cool!!!!!  HELLLLLOOOO!!!!!  But white people acting like a nation?  Daaaaawg…that’s just racist!  Why is that?  Frankly, it is because one is politically beneficial for the Left (as supported by the media) and one is not.  I also think it’s interesting that viewing all Americans as a single nation is also soooooooo not cool.  Why?  Because keeping us divided, yet again, helps the Left.  Bonus points as being united as a nation would also preclude open borders.  Can’t have that, now can we?

I can find many examples of people calling out white supremacists.  I can’t find hardly any people calling out black supremacists.  Black power… oh…we won’t say anything about that.  White power…daaaaawg…that’s just racist.  Now, you can say that it is because white supremacists view themselves as superior to others, whereas the black supremacist does not.  You are fooling yourself.  I cannot say that I know that much about the black power movement.  The white supremacy movement, however, is rooted in the science of Charles Darwin, who had a desire to prove that the white man was more evolved than the other races because they had a larger brain pan.  This was used as proof positive and justification for the colonization of the other races of the world.  But the same people that condemn the Right as racists love to elevate Darwin’s theory as de facto God… when Darwin clearly states that whites are superior to blacks and whereas God did not create anyone inferior to anyone else.  You will not find anywhere where Jesus says otherwise.  But let me assume that black supremacists do not believe that they are genetically superior to whites.  Just by the very nature of the argument, they must think that they are morally superior.  This cannot be denied.  For if you believe that the races are truly equal, there can be no X power, no Y power.  There can only be conversation.  There can only be reconciliation.  They cannot even be nationalization, because why would you bother nationalizing if we are the same?  If we are equal?

So, why might we see a rise of nationalism or even white nationalism?  Did it ever occur to people that when you separate people into groups and you demonize one group and elevate another group, that this might be a side effect?  If you are told time and time again that white people are the devil, that whites are inherently racists, that you have white privilege and on and on and on and on… did it ever occur to anyone that there are plenty of white people that get up every day and go to work and struggle to make ends meet…and that don’t feel like they have white privileged.  They feel like they bust their ass and get demonized just the same.  Over time, the drone of “white is evil” stops becoming effective or even encourages them to nationalize.  In fact, the racism of the past is a direct cause of why blacks decided to nationalize int he first place.  When a group is demonized, when they feel they are getting the shaft, the nationalize as they believe that there is safety in numbers.  When did the KKK form?  During the Reconstruction Era…when most whites were precluded from voting or holding office.  How did that work out?  The KKK and Jim Crow were all direct results from the backlash.  And the process is repeating.

Charlottesville was a non-event.  Two violent groups came together, and violence happened.  Anyone with half a brain could have predicted it.  Anyone with 51% of a brain could have prevented the violence.  Regardless, it is not worthy of the amount of covering the event is getting.  Let’s be honest, nothing Trump could have said would have gotten him out of trouble.  Nothing he could have said past, “I obviously caused this by being President…so I’m resigning as President of the United States” would have sated them.  Even that would not be enough as the media would have shifted the blame as being equally attributable to Mike Pence.

Trump was correct to call out anyone who starts violence.  White supremacists have a right to assemble and to free speech.  They do not have a right to run over people.  Antifa people have a right to assemble and free speech.  They do not have a right to attack people or set cars on fire.  Black Lives Matter have a right to assemble and to free speech.  They do not have a right to burn cities and loot.  NAMBLA people have a right to assemble and free speech.  They do not have a right to molest children.  In all cases, I do not attack the right to have an idea or even to express it.  Because in each case, I believe in my logic and intellect to counter their arguments.  This is why I do not fear ideas or groups.  Any group that seeks to deny these rights are pathetic, small-minded, fascist, and un-American.

Long Live the Constitution!

The Transgender Ban

Posted by Troy on 4th August 2017 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

Trump tweeted out that he was going to end the military accepting transgender people.  He cited the medical costs as the reason.  And of course, everyone lost their minds.

First, I agree whole-heartedly with this decision.  For a whole host of reasons.

1 – Even if they have a policy in place that says that we will not pay for the surgery to “transition,” this will be offered eventually.  There is no way Democrats would not offer it, but even if they don’t, the hormone replacement treatment is very expensive.  Why spend the military funds on this when you can buy jets and bombs and stuff?

2 – There are so many annoying things.  Which bathrooms do they use?  How do they fill out forms?  So forth and so forth.  It’s just annoying to have to worry about such things.

3 – Transgender people have something wrong with them.  I do not hate transgender people.  I do not have ill-wishes for them.  I do not fear them.  No, I actually care for them.  Whether or not people want to admit it, the parts that they seek to rid themselves of have a purpose.  When you get rid of them, you have to take hormones and etc.  This is not mere vanity.  This is different than someone getting plastic surgery.  Why?  Because a woman getting breasts implants doesn’t say “I was a big breasted woman born in a small breasted body.”  No.  She says “I have small breasts and I wish to have large breasts.”  In this way, she is different than the transgendered man.  He says, “I am a woman born in a man’s body.”  Now, you can quote me all kinds of chromosomes this and that and blah blah blah… but all of this is irrelevant.  Even if all that is true… you are born with a penis or a vagina.  That’s biology.  It’s anatomy.  Gender, as they used to tell me, is a social construct.  I would have a slightly different feeling if they said “I wish I were a woman because…”  Then it’s NOT a mental disorder.  They are saying that they are a man and they wish to be a woman.

It may sound like I’m splitting hairs, but I do believe that this gender dismorphia is sight of a mental illness, and I am hard pressed to support giving such a person a weapon and putting them in a high stress situation.

These people do not need “acceptance.”  They need help.  If your friend came to you and said “I am a blind man in a sighted body, so I am going to remove my eyes,” you would stop them.  How is it any different?  Merely because it has something to do with genitalia?

Long Live the Constitution!

Donald Trump Jr’s Collusion

Posted by Troy on 12th July 2017 in Current Events, Political

Let’s dissect what happened:

Last June (before the entire Russian explosion thing), an acquaintance contacts Donald Jr and tells him that he has a contact with information from the Kremlin which will incriminate Hillary Clinton.  Donald Jr. meets with her, attempting to get this information.

I wonder… If Hillary could have gotten pictures of Trump having sex with children from Putin, would she?  You bet she would.  Oh, she might give some “I hated getting the information this way… but I had to do it… I had to protect my country from this monster.”  And you can bet the media and the rest would have herald her for her courage.

These are the same people who praise Snowden for turning over intelligence to the community at large.  This is the same party that pardoned Manning for at best espionage, at worst treason.  Speaking of, what is treason?  Giving comfort and aid to our enemies.  What could that mean?  Could it mean doing an apology tour?  Obama.  Could it be giving Russia access to 25% of North America’s uranium after getting $500,000 from Russian entities from a speech and getting millions of donations  afterwards to their private foundation? Clinton.  How about structuring a nuclear arms deal that lets Russia expand their arsenal while we have to shrink ours?  Obama/Clinton.  What about paying a ransom and lifting sanctions to Iran when we know that they will use the money to fund terrorism and attack our interest?  Obama.  What about giving arms to known terrorists so that they can fight other people in the region?  Obama.  What about going to Cuba and legitimatizing a tyrannical government?  Obama.  What about releasing terrorist after terrorist from Gitmo?  Obama.  What about setting up an arms running deal to incriminate our own people so that you can push an anti-gun agenda on the premise that we are supplying arms that are killing Mexicans?  Obama.  What about demanding pro-Western rulers step down to be replaced by anti-American extremists?  Obama.  What about going to the Ukraine and using the Ukrainian government to do opposition research on Trump?  Clinton.  We could go on an on about this.

My point is this: either apply the standards uniformly, or not at all.

Specifically, until such time that it is show that there is a quid pro quo, I am most unconcerned.  I think the Left’s argument goes something like this: If Russia prefers that candidate, that candidate should step down–which is bizarre.  Frankly, I do not see that Russia truly preferred Trump.  If anything, I think Trump has been way stronger against Russia than Obama was in the last 8 years.  Have we forgotten that Obama gave Russia everything they wanted with the START treaty?  Did we forget that Russia took the Crimea under Obama?  That they did that laughable reset?  Do you remember when Obama drew a red line and then broke out in a cold sweat when Assad used chemical weapons anyway?  How Obama praised Russia and Russia’s fine work in promoting peace by brokering a solution to the chemical weapons…which rather conveniently let Obama backtrack on this red line that he had no intent in enforcing.

Don’t make me laugh.

If Hillary would have won, she would would stocked the Supreme Court with a 5-4 Liberal bias.  The Second Amendment would have died.  There is no limit to the evil that would have been plagued upon us.  You are going to be hard pressed to show me any amount of evil that Trump may do that will match this.

Long Live the Constitution.

The Lie of Gun Violence

Posted by Troy on 14th June 2017 in Current Events, Political

There are about 33,169 gun deaths a year.

Of this, 21,175 are suicides  63.8%.  You could say “Oh…but we need to protect people from killing themselves.”  This is odd given the same people that argue this are for medical assisted suicide, particularly in the terminally ill or elderly.  I guess they have no problem with you killing yourself, but they don’t want you to do it cheaply on your own terms.  In fact, Japan has one of the highest suicide rates and virtually no guns.  Method of suicide can be found.  It’s just in the United States, guns are readily available, reliable, and painless if done correctly.  Availability of guns will most likely have little effect on the number of suicides.

786 (2.3%) deaths are accidents or intention unknown.

That leaves 11,208 homicides.  Of these  80% are gang related.  Many of these deaths are gang on gang deaths as they wage war over turf and drug territory (which could lead to either a discussion of decriminalization or really cracking down on casual drug sales, I generally prefer the former than the latter).  But bear in mind…what is the term “Homicide?”  Well, it is when a human kills another human.  This is why suicides are lumped in with homicides.

MS-13 has proven that you don’t need guns to kill people.  You just jump out of your car with machetes and hack up 16 year old girls.  Or you can do like the Boston bomber and make a bomb out of fireworks and a pressure cooker.  Or you can do like the Nice terrorist and just turn your car off the road and mow people down.

None of these statistics show how many crimes are prevented by the idea that the potential may be armed or may have a shotgun by their bed.  None of these statistics show the number of times a gun being pulled is enough to cause someone to run away from a potential crime.

Finally, the Second Amendment is not about crime or self-defense.  It is about defending your country from a government run amok.

Long Live the Constitution!

As Predicted – Political Violence

Posted by Troy on 14th June 2017 in Current Events, Political

I have been warning this for a while.  Politicians and celebrities have been pushing the narrative that Trump is… well… let’s see if I can list everything:

1 – Is stealing everyone’s healthcare

2 – Is a dictator

3 – Is a racist

4 – Is a sexist

5 – Is a Nazi (Nationalist) WHILE AT THE SAME TIME

6 – Is colluding with the Russians to destroy America

7 – Is a white supremacist

8 – Is destroying the planet

9 – Is obstructing justice to secure all the above

10 – Is stealing from the poor to make his cronies rich

I’m sure there are other things, but 10 is good enough.  So you have all of these things being hammered over and over and over again.  You have entertainers SUGGESTING violence or showing violence (even if not real via Kathy Griffin’s decapitation or the Julius Caesar play).  You have liberal mayors and governors looking the other way when antifa protesters riot.  In all of this, how long would it take for someone to snap and turn to violence?  Apparently less than five months.

Chill out.  We put up with eight years of Obama without trying to kill people, you should do the same.  Right now, what you are showing is that you are only for democracy when things go your way.  In other words, you are a fascist who enjoys the illusion that you are some sort of enlightened believer of democracy.  If you are only for democracy when things go your way, I invite you to read A Clockwork Orange and wonder what it has to say about yourself.

Long Live the Constitution!

James Comey is a Teenaged Girl

Posted by Troy on 8th June 2017 in Current Events, Political

What came out in the Comey’s hearing is that he is a teenaged girl.  I could see a teenaged girl after a break up saying “He broke up with me because he wanted to date Jessica!  I don’t have any proof, but I know that he was having sex with her!  Oh…and he lies…like…all the time.”

So let’s review:

Loretta Lynch tells Comey to call his investigation of Hillary’s server a “matter” not an investigation.  Which oddly synced up to how the Clinton campaign labeled things.  Comey was confused and concerned, but did it anyway.  At the end of the day, he knew deep down in her heart of hearts, that the Saintly Hillary did not INTEND to do anything illegal, and he let’s it go.

Meanwhile, Trump says he hopes that Comey can let it go, and he knew that Trump intended this to be an order.  He was shocked!  He was confused and concerned.

God…this man gets confused and concerned a lot!  He also contradicts himself a lot.

“I took it to be an order…but I didn’t think it was obstruction…and I didn’t think that it should be told to anyone higher up…but now it’s reallllly significant!”

So he wants to eat his cake and eat it too.

Everyone thinks that Trump is a moron, but somehow he’s genius enough to word things perfectly in dealing with Comey when he failed to word ANYTHING perfectly for the entire tenure of his campaign.

So, to re-iterate: James Comey confirmed that he told Trump he is not under investigation.  He confirmed that there is no evidence of any collusion with Russia.  His only point is that Trump used the term “I hope.”  To which, Trump can say that he was just saying “I hope,” and Comey is just a paranoid political hack.  Given the amazing turnabout between intent regarding Hillary’s server use and a one time use of phrase by Trump, I believe that he is a political hack.  There have been many accounts before and after Trump took office that Comey hates Trump.

In regards to people who are upset because an FBI director called Trump a liar (ie, “It’s a shame we have a President that event he FBI director calls a liar!”), member of Congress called Obama a liar during the State of the Union.  Hell, it’s know and documented that President Obama and Hillary Clinton lied over and over and over and over and over again.

In a court of law, the case gets thrown out.  But let’s be realistic.  Impeachments are matters of political force.  The Republicans control the House.  Unless it comes out that Trump has made some sort of pact with the Russians that harms America, he will never be impeached.  At least not in the next two years.  If he is impeached under Republican control, the Republicans should just call it a day and close up shop.  They will never be a viable party ever again.

Long Live the Constitution!

We’re out of the Paris Accord!

Posted by Troy on 1st June 2017 in Current Events, Political

Thank God.  So, let’s recap for all those out there losin’ their friggin’ minds:

1 – This had nothing to do with decreasing carbon emissions and everything to do with global wealth redistribution.

2 – The dirtiest polluters were allowed to go on polluting.  For example: India would not be required to reduce (or even hold steady their pollution levels) until such time that they received $3 TRILLION in aid.

3 – The United States was going to be the one that bore the bulk of the costs of this program (hence why all other countries wanted us in on it).

4 – It would costs trillions of dollars to decrease the rate of temperature growth by half a degree over 100 years.  Assuming that the models are accurate, which they have not been to date.

5 – It was a non-binding agreement anyway.  As such, it was more a symbolic gesture than anything.  Somehow, all of these elites don’t care enough about the planet to downsize their own house, cars, private jets, or other such luxuries.  So they either know they are full of crap, or they think that they are special and should have more than the massive.  Some animals are more equal than others, as it were.

6 – You can tell that they are full of crap by the simple equation.  They believe that the world is LITERALLY going to end if the Paris accord falls through, right?  So why won’t they renegotiate with Trump?  What, they are going to be petulant with the fate of the world at stake?  I’m sorry.  That just doesn’t add up.  You believe THE WORLD IS GOING TO END.  Why wouldn’t you try to stem that if possible?

I am not a climate denier.  If anything, they are.  They seem to think that climate is going to be stagnant.  It is not.  It will constantly be changing.  What I question is the degree of of man’s impact on the climate.  Did you know all planets in our solar system are experiencing global warming?  Only one of them has humans on it.  You know what they all have in common?  The sun.  You know what climate change scientists FORBID to be discussed?  The sun.

I think that we should be good stewards of the Earth, but what I absolutely refuse to do is enter into a globalist wealth redistribution scheme.

Long Live the Constitution!

Angela Merkel’s Hissy Fit

Posted by Troy on 28th May 2017 in Current Events, Political

Trump goes over to Europe and says that they need to spend what is required by the NATO Treaty (2%) for defense.  We spend 3.5%.  Germany (the largest economy over there) pays 1.2%.  By saying this and by backing out of the Paris Accord on Climate Change, Angela threw a hissy fit and said that Europe has to go it’s own way and that we are unreliable allies.

This is false.  If Russia attacked Europe, we’d be over there kicking Putin’s butt the next day.  This is mean girl’s shit.  This is “if you don’t smoke this cigarette, you’re not really our friend!”  So let’s get this straight: do not hold us to our agreements, do exactly as we say (even if it hurts yourself),  and pay our way, or we are not going to be friends!  How is this any different than someone making you take them out to a vegan restaurant when you want to go to a steak house, and then demand you pay?  And if you don’t do all of this,  you’re the bad friend.  You know what that is in real life?  That’s an abusive relationship.  That’s being used.  To hell with that.  We are your ally, Germany, not your puppet.

My take is this: Germany wanted to take over Europe and failed twice.  They are now the main force in the EU, so really, they run the EU.  Now countries are realizing that the EU sucks and forces them to do stuff they don’t want to do.  Resisting the commandments of the EU is taking away Germany’s control over Europe, and Angela has got to nip that in the bud!

How does she keep winning elections over there?!!!!

Left Derangement and Impeachment Impossibilities

Posted by Troy on 16th May 2017 in Current Events, Political

The Left has come completely unhinged.

First, let’s talk about Trump “leaking classified information to the Russian Ambassador.”  This is actually impossible.  The President can declassify anything at any time.  He just CAN.  There’s nothing that can be done with it.  If he leaked the nuclear codes, I’m upset.  So what did he leak?  He leaked the city that the information was cleaned where ISIS is located.  The vast majority of Americans say “Meh.”  In fact, this seems reasonable.  He is trying to get Russia to aid in the fight against ISIS.  Doesn’t it seem reasonable that he might share such information as LOCATION with the forces he is trying to solicit aid from?  I just don’t see how this is a big deal.

Second, let’s talk about Comey saying that Trump tried to shut down the case against Flynn.  What did Trump say?  ”I hope you can let this go.  He’s a good man, and I hope you can let this go.”  That’s pretty innocuous.  Close doesn’t count here.  There was no veiled threat.  It would be different if Trump had said, “I hope you can let this go…it would be a shame if you lost your job because of it.”  Okay, well, that’s a threat.  The other is conveyance of your desires.  There was no promise of reward or punishment.  Once more…there are only two options: either Comey didn’t think it was obstruction at the time (in which case, he is being a petulant child throwing a temper tantrum because he was fired) or he held this back to blackmail the President.  In either case, he tarnishes his character and his testimony.  As such, the only conclusion that I can reach is that Trump was merely conveying a hope and his support to his friend and supporter.  Again…the vast majority of Americans would say  ”Meh.”

So let’s finally talk about impeachment impossibilities.  Dude…have ya read the Constitution?  The House of Representatives has to vote for impeachment.  Very unlikely given the fact that the Republicans are in a majority.  It would then go to the Senate for trial, which would be unlikely as the Republicans are in power there.

This obsession is going to backfire.  Democrats are appearing to be foaming at the mouth.  If every day the Democrats scream the sky is falling, it won’t take long before people stop listening.  Why?  Because the sky hasn’t fallen.

Here is the truth.  If the economy is going gangbusters in 3 years, Trump will win.  If the economy crashes or remains stagnant, he will lose.  If anything, the Democrats should want Trump to stay as President.  If he is impeached, Pence takes over.  Trump is better for ratings.  He is better for fund-raising.  He is also willing to negotiate.  Pence would eat them alive.

Long Live the Constitution!
