Aneurysm in the age of Trump

So imagine this. You’re walking down the street. Maybe you’re on your way back from lunch, about to go back in to work the best job you’ve ever had. This is something you could really spend your life doing, sink your teeth into it. You are “living your best life”, as thousands of single moms on Facebook have written under their Herbalife or Younique link.

Maybe you’ve got a song in your head. “Making my way downtown, faces-”

Then you’re just dead. No transition, no fear, no last words. You don’t even get to say “ow”. One moment you’re all sunshine and roses, the next somebody’s identifying you in a morgue.

Now, when you’re looking down the barrel of something like that, how productive you think it is to sit on the Internet and argue about how Trump is the second coming of Hitler? The simple fact is, he is the president. If you are an American and part of this country, he is your president. Instead of screaming and crying about how racist he is, which he isn’t, and screaming and crying about that one time you think he mocked a disabled reporter, which he didn’t, maybe you could spare a thought for wanting him to simply come up with better policy. So far, I see a lot of people with problems, but nobody with a solution, except to go out on the street and yell “f*** Trump”.

Pro tip: that’s not actually a solution.

I see a lot of people say that things would be so much better if Hillary or Bernie had been elected. Would they? The political stage of the world would not have changed. On the surface, the world might care who the president of the United States is. When it comes right down to it, though, it doesn’t matter who the president is. Venezuela is still going down the crapper. It is doing that purely because of socialism, and Bernie Sanders would not have saved it. The situation in Guatemala that sent thousands of people north to the southern border of the United States would have happened under Hillary’s watch as well. Her press conferences in the past suggest that she probably would’ve done the exact same thing as Donald Trump dead. My question is, how many of you would be celebrating it under Hillary?

A common saying is “it is what it is”. I’ve always hated that saying because I think it can diminish the gravity of the situation. At least, I thought it did. In recent years, particularly through 2017, I am realizing that no matter what happens in any one given place, the world will continue to turn, uncaring. Just like anyone who was going to have an aneurysm and die under Trump was also going to under Hillary or Bernie.

It’s a grim prospect, I realize. To imagine that one’s fate is inevitable seems almost tantamount to nihilism. I do not believe that one’s fate is inevitable, but I do believe that some events are going to happen no matter how you prepare or fight against them. It is your reaction, however, that determines the outcome.

Now, when I said that Trump is your president whether you like it or not, I’m sure that there were at least a few of you who “lit-rally” screamed at your phone or computer that the popular vote went to Hillary and the electoral college screwed us.

Imagine this. Imagine one day we become like Sparta. We start to mock and castigate overweight people, to the point that some of them are dying directly from the hazing they are receiving, like they did in Sparta. Imagine a law being passed by popular vote that outlaws fat blue haired feminists.

It’s unconstitutional, and you don’t really get a say in it, because the popular vote won.

The electoral college exists specifically to stop that sort of mob rule from happening. It exists because at least half of the population is medically too dumb to make rational decisions. Go check it out for yourself; half the population is below a triple digit IQ. That’s kind of a big deal.

Because I love to play with hypotheticals, let’s go with another one.

Imagine if California, based on their population, got to control what happens in the rest of the United States. Within the past year alone, Jerry Brown has made it legal to give somebody AIDS without telling them. More and more cities in California are banning straws, to the point that a second offense can bring jail time. An illegal alien shoots a woman to death? No biggie. At least he didn’t give her a straw.

That is exactly why the electoral college exists. It exists because people like Jerry Brown would have far too much power without it. People who are realistically not smart enough to think more than a step ahead.

Now, if the title has the word aneurysm in it, and it started being about that subject, how did we get off on this tangent?

I suppose that I can bring it back home: when you’re finished with this, and you move on to something else, maybe you shut off your computer and go do some real life things. Maybe you just keep browsing the Internet. Maybe, however, just maybe, an aneurysm in your head bursts and you die with this still up on your screen.

Boy, that would be wacky, wouldn’t it? At least you weren’t browsing furry porn on DeviantART.

Racism on The Left

In the year 2016, when political spirits were running high and anyone associated with the Trump name was immediately called a racist, I developed a theory. My theory was that these people who were so desperate for Hillary Clinton to get into the White House were actually projecting.

Now, for those of you who don’t know, projection is a term, a psychological term, for someone who is so ashamed of an act that they are committing or so desperate to get attention away from the office that they are committing that they actually accuse someone else of the same act.

Some people will recognize this in the form of relationships. Your significant other will cheat on you, and accuse you of cheating on them.

It is truly one of the most common psychological hacks. Right up there with gaslighting.

So, the way my theory goes, the Democrat party and all of their followers have been racist since the beginning. They are attempting, however, to paint the Republican Party as racist. They are not doing this in an attempt to remove themselves from racism, but instead to distract from their own acts of racism.

Don’t believe me? You might, after watching Occupy ICE protesters in this past week.

I assure you, that while people on the right keep their mouth shut and obfuscate exit polls by not telling the truth about who they voted for, the left is becoming more bold in there racism, identity politics, totalitarianism, and fascism.

Little is hidden anymore. If you are not with them, you are against them.

Hollywood and Hillary.

The reason for Hollywood being so adamant about Hillary being elected is now clear: Hollywood, filled with pedophiles, wanted a president that represented them and would protect them, and Hillary has protected pedophiles for decades.

The Blow Up.

In the wake of the Weinstein scandal and subsequent #MeToo movement, it has become abundantly clear that much of Hollywood has been involved in ongoing acts of sexual abuse and pedophilia over the course of decades. While there has been nothing as large as the Weinstein scandal, as yet, there have been small things over and over that have suggested Hollywood’s desire to normalize the sexualization of children while pushing away anyone who did not conform to that vision.

In late 2016, when the Clinton/Trump battle was raging in the political arena, it became clear that anyone who did not support Hillary in Hollywood was not going to be supported by Hollywood. Tim Allen, a conservative actor with decades of profitable shows under his belt had his show Last Man Standing canceled, with the reasoning that it simply wasn’t doing well in terms of ratings and profit. While this ordinarily would be a good reason, the show was in fact second only to Modern Family, a show that pushes the boundaries when it comes to promoting alternative lifestyles.

It doesn’t stop there. Lists can be found all over the Internet of conservative celebrities who have been forced to spout liberal rhetoric, support liberal causes, or have been told to stop having public conservative views in order to receive awards.

Hollywood is most certainly in a position to be in support of any Liberal candidate that might show up on the scene, and be vehemently against a conservative candidate.

Enter Hillary.

A former lawyer, former Secretary of State, and known for being the wife of someone who at the very least coerced someone into sexual favors while acting as president of the United States, Hillary would most certainly allow them to continue their lives of debauchery.

During the 2016 election, she became known for something quite different. Stories came up from multiple sources about her time as a lawyer. The stories were centered on a particular case, in which a 41-year-old man was accused of raping a 12-year-old girl.

The reality of the situation was that a female lawyer had been specifically requested to represent him during this case. In her book “Living History,” Clinton recalls that Mahlon Gibson, a Washington County prosecutor, told her that the accused rapist “wanted a woman lawyer” to defend him, and that Gibson had recommended Clinton to Judge Maupin Cummings. “I told Mahlon I really didn’t feel comfortable taking on such a client, but Mahlon gently reminded me that I couldn’t very well refuse the judge’s request.”

A Compromising Position.

While she was put into an unfair circumstance, it brings to mind the fact that it seems a number of liberal elites get themselves into situations that will compromise them. See: all of Harvey Weinstein’s victims. Even Madonna, who is often quoted as saying that losing her virginity was a career move, wanted The Enabler in office, and virtue signalled loudly to anyone who would listen, about The Donald’s Iniquities.

So, with her husband’s propensity toward taking advantage of women, coupled with her lackadaisical attitude toward being coerced into things, it stood to reason that Hollywood would stand behind her, if only as a figurehead and an enabler.

Thus, Hollywood did what it does. Celebrities came out of the woodwork, making ads or participating in them telling the American citizens that they had better vote for Hillary. One even featured Robert De Niro describing how he would like to commit an act of violence on the man running against Hillary. They needed their machine to keep working. Actors and actresses needed Hollywood to remain silent about the culture that had permeated their very lifestyle for so long.

It didn’t work.

Donald Trump being elected, and his penchant for getting emotional where children are involved, threw a wrench into a meticulously cultivated and curated system. With Donald Trump as President, suddenly victims are coming out in droves, telling stories that span decades, about the abuse that powerful people within Hollywood have exacted upon impressionable, malleable young stars. Rampant pedophilia and movie roles given in exchange for sexual favors are now on display for all of America to see.

The question that springs to mind, however, is why did all of Trump’s accusers fall silent once the election ended, while people like Juanita Broaddrick continue to fight against the Clintons openly like they did while Bill was still President?

It seems that if something actually happened, that they’d keep fighting as well.

In the mean time, Hollywood will do as it has always done: Attempt to distract us while pushing their offenders under the rug, where there will no doubt be more debauchery, protected from the light of day, waiting for the day when another enabler will come to pretend to lead the country.

 

An Open Letter to Donald Trump

Donald, I liked you from the start. You were rich, beyond what most people are, and yet you spent your time giving people a chance. You were the first to ever let a woman design and build a skyscraper in New York. You brought other races to the trading floor on Wall Street before it was cool. When you ran for president, I was overjoyed. I knew who my candidate was going to be I knew where my vote was going. You were brash, you were rude. You didn’t care what people thought. I liked that. It was a good quality to have. It still is. I liked that people got combative about you, especially the spoiled children that comprise a lot of the twentysomething leftists. Best of all, you weren’t Hillary.

I really wanted you to make America great again. They said you made fun of a disabled person on the news. I did my research, I fact checked. You did not, in fact, make fun of a disabled person on the news. You did the same thing that you have done for decades when you mimic someone, including yourself, who has forgotten something or had some sort of a brain fart. This only bolstered my support for you. How can these people be so stupid as to misinterpret that when the proof is right there in front of them? You attacked a gold star family. I tried, but I couldn’t find a reason for it. I actually wanted to excuse your behavior with the rationale that you’re President and I’m not and so you must know best. You were so defensible before, why not now?

Recently, you said that the president of Puerto Rico was a moron, or something to that effect. The statements and ad libs are starting to blur in my mind these days. You had my vote. You had my allegiance. You had someone who would argue on your behalf on every subject, and I knew I was right every time. I also happen to know that I am right this time, when I hang up my hat.

This time I can’t defend you any longer. This time, all I can do is say at least it’s not Hillary. It makes me sad that it’s the only argument left to defend you with. You were something. You were a self-made billionaire. People would always argue, “he just had a small loan of a million dollars”, to try to mock your business ability. I would always retort, asking them if they could make a million if I gave them a thousand.

Most people, given a million dollars or more, are broke in a year’s time. Truthfully, very few people are good with money. Being good with money, however, does not make a person good with everything else. I tried to ignore your “grab them by the pussy” comment, calling it exactly what it was: immature locker room talk. When you admitted to infiltrating the locker rooms of contestants for Miss Teen USA, however, I had no argument to defend you with. There was nothing left.

Donald, you really had something. You could have been a boon to this nation. Instead, you’re just making Carter and Nixon look better, and making your former supporters feel destitute and disenfranchised. I doubt that you will make it a full term. If you do, and you do the remainder perfectly, people will not recognize it. You have sullied the Trump name to badly. If you run in 2020, please know that my vote will go to Dwayne Johnson. Even if he’s not running.

As for the rest of you out there, just because I’m no longer a Trump supporter, doesn’t mean that I would ever in my life be a Hillary supporter. I will also still attend rallies in my city, because I am still desperate to steal an Antifa flag, and to punch actual Nazis.

I am, however, hanging up my MAGA hat here.

Projecting Your Own Issues.

If you’re smelling something bad everywhere you go, it’s most often coming from you.

There is an expression that I like to use. It says, “if you smell shit wherever you go, maybe you ought to check your own shoe”.

It’s a pretty universal expression, and can be applied to just about everything. That girl you know who’s constantly bitching about her awful boyfriends? It’s not them. It’s her. That guy putting out thousands of job applications, and still can’t get hired anywhere? It’s not them. It’s him. If a person has a nagging problem following them around, the problem is usually with them.

So, let’s get to the meat of this.

In the wake of hurricane Harvey and hurricane Irma, “journalist” Sarah Jaffe, A white girl with far too much make up who looks like she would say something along the lines of what follows, says that arresting looters is racist against black people.

Now, nobody said anything about black people. The cops were simply arresting anybody who was found stealing things during the hurricane. And yet, Sarah Jaffe, paragon of inclusion that she is, comes out and says something not only racist, but completely unnecessary and divisive. That’s like me chaining up my bike, and somebody coming up to me and saying “what are you, afraid of black people?” While I am doing nothing to suggest me being racist, you, an actual racist, decide to virtue signal, using me as a scapegoat.

And it’s not just her.

In the wake of the bombing at Parsons Green yesterday, people immediately come out not decrying the blowing up of innocent people, but instead bitching about how all of the Islamophobes would be coming out of the woodwork. In fact, people saying nothing about Islam, but saying negative things about the as yet unknown bomber, still stirred reactions such as “your Islamophobia is showing”. Donald Trump called the bomber a loser. That’s it. Nothing more. Nothing about Islam. Care to guess what all of the replies were? Yep. People calling Donald Trump an Islamophobe. After he said nothing about Islam.

59bd291437fc3

After the bombing at Manchester arena during an Ariana Grande concert, metro police were actually going around and investigating anyone who put out a mean tweet about Islam, Instead of actually protecting the people. Even after it was proven that yet another terror attack was perpetrated by a member of the Islamic brotherhood, there were people far too publicly showing their disgust with anyone blaming Islam.

Is this an example of people trying to voice their own feelings, while appearing to remain politically correct?

Back when Obama was running for president, I still remember how many white people voted for him just so that they could prove how non-racist they were. Whatever happened to calling on a person’s merits, rather than their race? Nope, gotta vote for him because he’s black.

Well that seems pretty racist. Plus, Herman Cain was better.

Readers, this blog is about personal responsibility. Virtue signaling is about as irresponsible as you can get.

In other news, the Parsons green bomber was arrested a few hours ago. They only describe him as 18 years old. By their omission, the media makes it clear what motives this man had. That’s exactly what virtue signaling does. By trying to hard to look impartial, and thus not describe the man who was arrested, they make it clear exactly what the man was.

Lies and obfuscations should not be tolerated. Virtue signallers still trot out Timothy McVeigh when a bombing happens, and yet managed to take time out of their day on September 11, 2017 to post on their Facebook and Twitter that we really need to get over the attack perpetrated by Islam on September 11, 2001.

America, this is not a time to be divided. Hurricane Harvey showed us that race does not really exist. We are the human race, and have a rainbow of colors within us. Don’t let ideologies and virtue signaling take us down.

An Evening in Downtown Phoenix.

I was at the Trump rally in Phoenix last night. I ended up getting there quite late, roughly 7 o’clock. The last few people who were going to get into the convention center were entering. The sidewalks were crowded, with protesters on one side of the street and Trump supporters on the other. The streets themselves were relatively clear, thanks to the phoenix police. Knowing that there was no chance of getting in, I wandered the streets and enjoy the sights and sounds of the throng on both sides of the street. 

Amid cries of “Fuck Trump!”, which has become the standard battle cry for the erudite leftists when they find they have no actual argument, there were a group of BLM members that were playing a rap song on a boombox that also featured the term “fuck Trump”. A highly imaginative group on that side of the street. 

Meanwhile, on the conservative side of the street, there were discussions going on as to what was being said by Donald Trump inside of the building, as many people were streaming it on their phones while they stood on the sidewalk. 

There was one guy wearing a white wife beater that was admonishing the conservatives by naming downtrodden communities like Harlem and Compton. Y’all wouldn’t understand, he said. Y’all don’t know, he said. How little this man does now. I grew up in a place like that. Unlike him, however, I didn’t sit around for decades feeling sorry for myself. I decided that my lot in life was not the hand I was dealt. I, therefore, did not sympathize with this man. 

I saw police on horses wearing riot gear, and police on the ground wearing the same. It was far too hot outside for what they were wearing. And yet, it was necessary, due to the situation that could pop off at any moment. When Trump’s address ended, The attendees, obviously conservatives and Trump supporters, filed past the protesters, with mere feet of space and a thin line of police tape separating the two groups. 

I was prepared for a fight at one point, as a man who had his little girl with him who couldn’t possibly have been above ten years old, was harassed and shouted at by the protesters with a level of profanity that a girl that young should not have to listen to. Her father was obviously perturbed and offended, as he flipped the bird at the group. Two protesters broke off from the rest and began to follow him and his daughter. I followed as well, prepared to put them both on the ground if they attacked the man and his daughter. Eventually they backed off and went back to their group, to resume shouting at the passing conservatives. 

While I wandered, I made sure to listen to the conversations going on. Something that struck me was how everyone on the liberal side of the street seems to be looking for a solution to their problems that didn’t involve actually solving them. They wanted somebody to point the finger at, someone to blame. Not themselves, though. Clearly, nobody can be responsible for their own life and decisions. They were born poor, and raised by single mothers. They can’t possibly have any responsibility in this world.

There were a small group of BLM members that were trying to blame Whitey for every problem they ever had, but they mainly kept to themselves.

There was one point during which a very large and muscular man wearing a trump shirt passed by. The protesters became conspicuously quiet at that moment. They who are so keen on violence to spread their word, but only toward those who are unlikely to hit back. It was very telling. 

Among the people wandering around observing was a man who was dressed in furs and wearing a spirit hood. He appeared to be a centrist, and was trying to let both sides know that they were wrong in opposing each other.

Anyways, once all of the attendees left, and the only people remaining where the conservatives and protesters of various ilk on opposite sides of the street, the police deployed teargas to disburse the crowds. I don’t blame them one bit. I’m sure that thousands of people on either side of the street did not have work to get to in the morning, and would’ve gladly stayed there all night carousing, arguing, and fighting. In that heat, in the clothing they had to wear, with dehydration weighing on them, I fully understand why the police did what they did. I also fully support it. They had families to get home to. They were tired, and had beds they wanted to collapse into. 

In short, the evening was relatively uneventful, compared to what was expected. Phoenix showed that it, as a collective, has a little more class than some of the other cities we’ve seen. I’m proud to live here, and look forward to seeing other cities live up to what I saw last night.

Charlottesville’s Web: A Primer for the Uninitiated.

In this week that follows the events in Charlottesville, I see things happening that are not good for us; as individuals, or as a country. Blame is being thrown around like a quarter-billion person game of hot potato, except we’re all holding the ball when the timer goes off.

Who’s To Blame?

There is blame toward the white supremacists who started the rally there, and rightly so. In this melting pot of a country, racism has no place. Despite the fact that they obtained a legal permit and were there legally, they were doing something that ultimately hurts the well-being of the country. I do appreciate, though, that they showed their faces, though as to whether that was bravery or stupidity and ignorance, the jury is still out. Being pro-white is not, in itself, a bad thing. It’s not racist. Being anti-any other color, however, is unacceptable. It is racist. Many of these white supremacists have ancestry that contains races they claim to be against. I guess they’re just starting from their current generation.

Opposite these neanderthals were Antifa, a relatively new group that dedicates itself to eradicating fascism. What they don’t do, however, is stop being fascists themselves. It’s as though they read Saul Alinsky and used his writings as instructions, rather than a warning against further acts of fascism. Antifa contains members of all races, but leaves the respectable ones at home. You won’t find Martin Luther King Jr in this bunch, though Malcolm X makes quite a few appearances. They cover their faces and wear hoods in an attempt to not be identified. I’d equate them with the KKK, but even in their hoods, the KKK is still dumb enough to tell you their names.

Antifa have made huge strides over the past couple of years in eradicating free speech. They do this through acts of mob violence toward anyone who doesn’t fully agree with them, and through destruction of property. Anyone remember Bike Lock Guy? He was a college professor who donned a mask and split a man’s head open with a bike lock, then ran away like a coward. Now, he must have had a good reason, right? No, he just saw someone who supported Trump and started swinging. There have been many more violent acts committed by Antifa, but so far, their masks have allowed them to remain anonymous in those instances.

As yet, Antifa has received no blame by the media for the violence that went on in Charlottesville.

A third group was represented, though at this time, nobody seems to know whether they were actually there, or just Antifa members carrying their cry. Shouts of “Black Lives Matter” could be heard during the counterprotest.

Black Lives Matter is a group I will gladly lump in with the KKK. They have fought hard for apartheid, even going so far as to gain ‘black only’ spaces at various college campuses, and even taking over Evergreen college, to varying degrees. Bernie Sanders was shouted down by them, even though he supported them, simply because his skin is white. White allies of BLM have found themselves attacked and ousted because they aren’t black. The founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, Yusra Khogali believes that white people are genetic defects and need to be wiped out. BLM is a hate group, and is racist, and should be treated just like the KKK.

Aside from that, we have Donald Trump himself. A man who has spent many decades making strides in racial inclusivity, is now labeled a racist, because that’s the word the left uses when they don’t have an argument. He didn’t say anything about Charlottesville for two days following the riots. Anyone can see that he should likely have already been denouncing all sides of the riot before the crowds had even cleared. Instead, he waited, and then delivered a middling response. A smart person knows he’s simply not up to this task. Most people, however, decided that anything short of him going to Charlottesville and shooting a KKK member himself was racist.

Finally, we have the general populace. Celebrities have come out denouncing the KKK, which they should. Some, though, denounced white people specifically. Jennifer Lawrence has come out saying that people need to identify all members of the KKK rally. Just what we need. A bunch of basement-dwelling, blue-balled neckbeard white knights vying for J-Law’s attentions by pointing to anyone they saw at the rally. This can’t possibly go wrong. Oh wait, it already did.

Let’s Point Fingers

It looks like everyone is looking for someone else to blame. The KKK wants to blame those nasty scary black people who are black because of their sins, not because their homelands required melanin in their skin. BLM wants to blame those pasty demonic white people who were invented by Yakub as something for black people to fight against. Antifa wants to blame anyone who isn’t them. Everyone wants to blame Trump.

It looks a whole lot like people trying to blame anyone but themselves. Everyone in the KKK and BLM needs to realize that they, as individuals, decided to be racists and join groups based on persecuting another race. Children aren’t born racist. My (white)kids know that black people are dark because of melanin, and are otherwise the same as white people.

Antifa members need to look at themselves and realize that they have become a militia, and that it is their fault that their protests turn ugly. Meeting words with violence is never okay, and labeling someone as a bigot(often falsely) doesn’t immediately give you the moral high ground.

The Best We Can Be

We, as Americans, need to look to ourselves as the example. Don’t be like Trump. Don’t be like the KKK. Don’t be like BLM. Don’t be like Antifa. Be decent. Be kind. Care for your fellow man. Take the blame when you screw up, realize it’s okay and doesn’t define you, and try to do better.

I realize this sounds trite, but be the best you that you can be. Be the change you want to see in the world.
