Dog-whistle politics: Shoulda’, coulda’ woulda’, If…


Obama uses coded language that appears to mean one thing to the general population but has an additional, different or more specific resonance for a targeted subgroup.

Obama: Clinton would have won in a landslide if only (more) young (illegals and dead) people voted.

If we are to use the same techniques and tactics the Obama-influenced media uses, this is the type of message that is being generated.

“If you look at the (skewed) data from the election, if it were just young (unlawful, undocumented) people who were voting, Hillary would have gotten 500 electoral votes,” Obama told (dictated to) the Rolling Stone. “So we have helped, I think, shape (brainwash) a generation to think (be programmed) about being inclusive, being fair and caring about the environment (just like BLM).”

Young (communist) Americans (useful idiots), he said, “will have growing influence year by year, which means that America over time will continue to get better (fail by meeting our expectations).” – (edited excerpt) The Hill

Reality check:

Those young college kids grow up, and then have to pay bills, get a job, and face the real world. They then turn more conservative as they see their taxes going to crap and illegals taking their jobs

Consider this from the bowels of Obama’s pre-presidental psychological conditioning and his previous job experiences.

The organizer’s first job is to create the issues or problems,’ and ‘organizations must be based on many issues.’ The organizer ‘must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act.…An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent.’” –Saul Alinsky

“Do you know that ‘if’ is the middle word in life?

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
–Rudyard Kipling

If we vote for it we will know what’s in it.– That’s a legacy which has worked out well so far hasn’t it, especially for those that conveniently exempted themselves.

Mass Quixotism exposed


“If you torture the data long enough, it will confess to anything.” –Nobel Laureate Ronald Coase

Quixotism (/kwɪkˈsɒtɪzəm/ or /kiːˈhoʊtɪzəm/) (adj. quixotic) is impracticality in pursuit of ideals, especially those ideals manifested by rash, lofty and romantic ideas or extravagantly chivalrous action.[1] It also serves to describe an idealism without regard to practicality. An impulsive person or act might be regarded as quixotic.

Quixotism is usually related to “over-idealism”, meaning an idealism that doesn’t take consequence or absurdity into account. It is also related to naïve romanticism and to utopianism. –From Wikipedia

“When you mix divisive politics and government funding in with science (or anything else), you can expect that the findings will not always be accurate.

So what happens when vast swaths of the scientific community are wholly supported by government funding? Their positions are influenced. The money they receive comes with strings attached.”  — (excerpt) Conservative Daily Post


Trump and the Climate Change Clown Show

Climate change is back in the news as President-Elect Donald Trump threatens to roll back much of the Obama climate agenda.  The Obama administration added 229 major regulations at an additional annual cost of $108 billion, many of which involve energy policy.  The “Clean Power Plan” is one such regulatory behemoth, jacking up the cost of energy under the guise of saving the planet from global warming.

Of course, the left believes that Trump will mandate dirty air and water, encouraging pollution on a mass scale.  After all, Republicans prefer living in a toxic waste dump world, exposing themselves and their families to pesticides, carcinogens, smog, and all other forms of environmental filth.  Or so we are told.

As the debate heats up ahead of Trump assuming office, now is a good time to take another look at the doomsday predictions of global warming and the upcoming extinction of life on Planet Earth.  That’s just hyperbole, right?  Actually, it’s not.  A climate change scientist from the University of Arizona predicts human extinction in ten years.

Polar ice caps are a good barometer of global temperatures.  If the ice caps are melting, the planet is likely warming.  Environmental soothsayer Al Gore recognized this and made a bold prediction in 2008.  He told a German audience that the northern polar ice cap would disappear in five years.

How did his prediction turn out?  Not well.  Al’s prognostication was on par with recent media predictions of a Hillary Clinton landslide electoral victory.

Polar ice caps are measured via satellite, a process beginning in 1979.  Recent NASA satellite data shows no recession of the polar ice caps since 1979.  In fact, since 2012, the total extent of polar ice is above post-1979 average.  The ice caps are growing, not shrinking.  In the words of Al Gore, this is “an inconvenient truth.”

It’s all much like thawing a frozen Thanksgiving turkey.  If you leave it in the garage for a day to thaw, and it’s still frozen solid, it’s safe to assume that the garage temperature is below freezing.

There is nothing wrong with making predictions.  This is part of the scientific method.  This requires four steps to make an accurate representation of natural phenomenon.

First, observe the phenomenon – in this case, what Al Gore and others believed to be warming of the planet.  Second, formulate a hypothesis to explain the warming.  One possibility is human endeavors.  Another is solar activity.  Third, use the hypothesis to make future predictions, such as melting polar ice caps.  Fourth, test the predictions based on experiments or observations.

Did the ice caps actually melt?  Obviously not – meaning back to the drawing board for Al Gore and his disciples.

What went wrong: the observations or the hypothesis?  Or both?

Perhaps the original observation of global warming is flawed.  Many other scientists observe global cooling instead, especially over the past 30 years.  Accurate temperature recordings are a recent technology, especially compared to the time span of human activity on the planet and the lifespan of Earth itself.

There may be dips and rises in a longer-term temperature trend line, much like the drive from Denver to the Eisenhower Tunnel in the Rocky Mountains.  Despite a nearly 6,000-foot climb, there are short downhill stretches along the road.  Observing only the downhill section of Floyd Hill, for example, one would incorrectly assume it’s downhill from Denver to the top of the continental divide, overlooking the longer overall uphill journey.  In climate change parlance, this would be labeled as a “hiatus.”

Aside from the observations, warming versus cooling, what is the hypothesis as to what is causing the change?  Some blame human activity and the burning of fossil fuels.  Others attribute temperature changes on Earth to the Sun, our solar system furnace, a million times larger than Earth.  Just as a home furnace turns on and off at the direction of a thermostat, the Sun has its own cosmic thermostat, well beyond our comprehension or control.

Turn down the Sun’s thermostat, meaning reduced solar activity, and the solar system cools down.  European researchers predict a “mini ice age” from 2030 to 2040 based on decreased solar activity.  They liken it to the Maunder Minimum in the 1600s, which saw the River Thames in London completely frozen.

So is the planet warming or cooling?  That the polar ice caps are not melting suggests that the Earth is not warming.  Is it cooling?  Perhaps, as some scientists recently noted based on temperature measurements.

What about the predictions?  Al Gore’s hot air is based on politics and carbon credit sales.  His predictions carry as much weight as those of Leo DiCaprio and Emma Watson.

Even the scientists got it wrong.  The International Climate Change Conference made a ten-year prediction in 2000 for rising global temperatures that was off by well over a degree in 2010, with an increasing gap between actual and predicted temperatures beyond 2010.  If they can’t forecast ten years into the future, how can they predict 50 or 100 years from now?

The science is far from settled.  Observations need to be refined and standardized so apples are being compared to apples.  Hypotheses must be reworked and tested to determine if they truly predict anything.  And politics should have no place in the debate, as political agendas trump the scientific method.

Speaking of Trump, he told the N.Y. Times that he is keeping an “open mind” when it comes to climate issues.  Good approach.  Until the science is settled, only an open mind will be receptive to new or contradictory information.

In the meantime, Trump wants to roll back costly and economically harmful regulations from the Obama administration.  Unlike future temperatures, the effects of these regulations are well known in terms of energy prices, jobs, and American industry competitiveness.

Chasing windmills at the expense of jobs and commerce is no way to make America great again.

A “teachable moment”? Grievance Industry Narrative Revealed


What?  “Scared Muslim migrant” runs over innocent U.S. university students and subsequently attacks them with a machete.

The illogical trigger: “I’m a Muslim, it’s not what the media portrays me to be. …”

Wait for it… The distorted focus of the narrative becomes why his emotions are more relevant than his murderous intention and actions.  On cue, the media undoubtedly wastes no time blaming everyone and everything except for the murderous jihadist and his religious fanaticism. 

Again the propagandists are Jumping the shark on things like Gun violence, bullying, “we may never know the motive”narrative, etc. etc. (all unrelated).

But there’s more.

Who in their right mind is “scared” of freedom? Never mind.

Ohio State students and faculty pushed hard for more Islamic immigration

So, let’s not call this what it is; just because ISIS claimed responsibility, that’s no reason to think it was Radical Islamic Terror, is it?

What is going to happen, when this special interest group of people “feel” they are not getting enough gummy bears and Nutella?

“At no point in history has any government ever wanted its people to be defenseless for any good reason.”

Further media examples:

Ohio State Attacker Described Himself as a ‘Scared’ Muslim
Before running over and slashing (innocent) bystanders, (Somali Muslim immigrant) Abdul Razak Ali Artan told his college newspaper he was afraid to pray on campus (because there weren’t enough Islamic prayer spaces available there).

Then there is reality. Muslim terrorist attacks are an extreme form of bullying. But of course, censored examples of selective liberal amnesia and media induced bias will insure a spin in the opposite direction, surely for the sake of their fatal forms of  political correctness.

Anti-bullying programs, while sounding good on paper, are often insidious. They’re a progressive activist’s best friend. More often than not these programs end up portraying families and individuals with traditional Judeo-Christian values as the enemy of all that’s good and decent in the world.

A Moral Tail: The Animals held an election …


Dogs, and cats were the primary candidates, and rodents and marsupials were also represented.

Animal voters in a landslide, decided that it was the dogs that barked and crapped the most. So the dogs won the election.

The cats and their supporters were reluctant to concede and proceeded to riot, tear down curtains and spray everything while making terroristic threats against the deciding voter council.

The rodents, whom didn’t do well at all in the election, raised funds to hide their losses, fill their nests and pay for their failed campaign finances as they claimed that some of them might bark and crap too; stirring up anger with the cats and their supporters, they raised funds based on unsubstantiated accusations from several burrows claiming that other players in the animal kingdom had undue influence in the election outcome. In fact, they demanded that any findings in the cat boxes be recounted, conveniently including any recent additions. Without realizing it, the rodents were projecting the very seditious methods previously used in undermining the past two elections won by the cats.

Even though it was virtually unanimous that dogs do bark and crap and while cat’s crap, their meow is not a bark; still, there are many that will not accept this and wear safety pins, or riot, or hide away in their safe spaces, doing silly tricks to protest, just as their masters or owners have trained them.

As for the rodents, they are still pests and when this is all over, many will continue to be trapped by their own greed and/or eaten by the cats and the dogs. Many others in the animal kingdom will shake their heads and tell them, “we told you so.”

[Full Story]

One of Michigan’s 16 electors who will be called upon to cast a vote validating the election of Donald Trump in the Electoral College has testified on video that he and others in the state are receiving “dozens and dozens of death threats” from Hillary Clinton supporters urging them to switch their votes to Clinton.

On Dec. 19 the Electoral College will convene to cast their votes for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, with each state’s electors pledged to vote for the candidate elected on Nov. 8 in their state.

But more than a dozen states have no laws making it illegal for the electors to change their vote while others have only a minor penalty such as a fine for doing so. If Clinton’s supporters can get enough of the 163 electors from states where Trump both won and votes can be legally switched on Dec. 19, Hillary Clinton becomes the next president of the United States.

Michael Banerian, 22, of Oakland County, Michigan, is one of that state’s 16 official electors who will meet in the state capital of Lansing on Dec. 19 to cast their votes for Trump. He told the Detroit News Thursday he has received threatening emails, lots of them, from people telling him to vote for Democrat Clinton instead of the GOP victor he is pledged to support. Trump won Michigan’s popular vote and should be able to count on the 16 electoral votes in that state.

But Clinton supporters have “deluged Banerian and other GOP electors with pleas and nasty emails to reverse course and cast their ballots for Clinton,” the Michigan Republican Party is reporting.

“You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’” he told the News in a 6-minute video interview. “I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”

terroristic threat: a threat to commit a crime of violence or a threat to cause bodily injury to another person and terrorization as the result of the proscribed conduct. Several U.S. states have enacted statutes which impose criminal liability for “terroristic threatening” or “making a terroristic threat.

He said that while many of the emails are clearly death threats, others would fall into the category of “death wishes.”

Things like, “do society a favor and throw yourself in front of a bus.”

“I’ve just gotten a lot of ‘you’re a hateful bigot and I hope you die,’ which is kind of ironic,” Banerian said, “that they’re calling me hateful and yet wishing for my death. They don’t even know me.”

The Detroit News verified one message containing a death wish and another containing a death threat, in which the person told Banerian he would “put a bullet” in his mouth. Banerian said he deleted the rest of the emails and messages “because as you can imagine they’re clogging up my email.”

An online petition on Change.org signed by more than 4.3 million people is calling on the nation’s 538 electors to vote for Clinton instead of Trump.

Georgia official issues warning: stop harassing electors

While it is not legal to change one’s electoral vote in Michigan it can be done in other states, such as Georgia.

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp issued a statement Friday urging Georgians and others to refrain from using threatening and disparaging language to manipulate electors:

“The Presidential election is over but, unfortunately, the vitriol remains,” stated Secretary of State Brian Kemp. “Our office has received numerous reports of individuals hurling insults and threats at Georgia’s Electors because they are unsettled with America’s choice for President of the United States. This is absolutely unacceptable and those participating in or encouraging these efforts should stop. The electoral process in America has worked, and everyone – Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and others – should respect the will of Georgia’s voters and the Electors who represent them.”

Arizona reports threats against its electors

Fox News reported Friday that Arizona electors are also being harassing and threatened by Clinton supporters.

“Arizona’s presidential electors are reportedly being hit by a flood of emails and phone calls demanding they defy the voters in their state and choose Hillary Clinton instead of President-elect Donald Trump — as part of a last-gasp bid to overturn the election,” Fox reported.

Clinton-backers are targeting roughly 160 Republican electorates in the 15 states that Trump won and don’t have laws bounding the electorates to the winner: Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and West Virginia.

Meanwhile in Michigan, Banerijan says he will not be intimidated and has no plans of changing his vote.

“Even if I could, I wouldn’t be remotely interested in changing my vote,” Banerian, a political science student in his senior year at Oakland University and youth vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party, told the News. “The people of Michigan spoke, and it’s our job to deliver that message.”

He says even if he could change his vote, it’s not allowed. “That’s a misconception that I wish people knew about. It’s just a Google search away,” he said.

He will be in the Michigan capital of Lansing on Dec. 19 to proudly cast his vote for Trump.

Attending a liberal university in a state that has voted for Democrat presidents in the previous two elections, he said he doesn’t get many chances to celebrate a political victory. So he is especially proud to be taking part in the democratic process in Michigan that helped elect a Republican president.

He participated in a counter protest recently in which a Trump supporter was assaulted by a Clinton supporter, who came running toward him and other who had to “dodge out of the way.”

“What I would ask Michiganders and Americans to do is act like Americans,” he said.

“Americans don’t assault each other for political differences,” he added. “Americans don’t get in each other’s faces, spit on people, try to throw them to the ground. That’s not what Americans are all about. In many ways both sides have contributed to a lot of anger, and much of it well founded, but, I just ask everyone to act like an American. Americans’ don’t do this stuff. We don’t send death threats, we don’t beat each other up for political differences, that’s not what Americans are about, and Americans that have done that throughout history have been cast out of our society, and rightfully so. We don’t act like that so I just ask that we all live up to the responsibility of being Americans.”

Although critics have complained that the people’s will is being thwarted because Clinton narrowly leads in the national popular vote, Banerian said the system will be vindicated when he and other electors go to Lansing on Dec. 19. Electoral College defenders have argued that America’s founding fathers designed the system to protect small states from being dominated by states with large urban populations.

Another Michigan elector, Kenneth Crider, told the News he hasn’t received any death threats but has gotten more than 300 emails from people in other states asking him to vote for Clinton instead of Trump on Dec. 19.

The 51-year-old heating and air-conditioning technician said many of the emails were from teachers and professors trying to explain to him the gravity of the situation, urging him to change his mind.

But he said there’s no swaying his vote.

“I’m 100 percent behind Donald Trump,” Crider told the local newspaper.

Even if Banerian, Crider or one of the other electors had a change of heart, Michigan law says their votes would become null and void and another elector would be put in their place to cast a vote for Trump.

But not all states are that strict. Some electors could change their minds and cast votes for Clinton, a prospect that political analysts say is unlikely since candidates tend to recruit the most loyal supporters to be electors.

But that doesn’t stop the Clinton supporters from trying.

“We are calling on the electors to ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton,” the Change.org petition said. “Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic.”

While some lobbying is peaceful, other electors report receiving intimidating emails or messages, while to possibility of bribery is also feared.

“Hearing from them that they are also receiving threats, I’m interested in getting a consensus from the group … and seeing if it’s something that we should report to the police,” Sarah Anderson, the Michigan Republican Party spokeswoman, told the News. “It’s obviously something that we’re taking very seriously.”

Banerian said he has not yet reported any threats to the police but is considering doing so.

BuzzFeed reported Thursday that the #NotMyPresident Alliance, a national anti-Donald Trump protest group, has released the personal information of dozens of Electoral College members in states that voted Republican.

A spreadsheet distributed to supporters Wednesday included the electors’ personal phone numbers, addresses, religions, races, genders and candidate preference.

See: 18 U.S. Code § 2384 – Seditious conspiracy

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

The group hopes its members and citizens around the country will contact electors and pressure them to change their vote from Trump to another candidate before Dec. 19.

The purposefully ignorant and uneducated can be sold on anything …


Islam’s Celestial Women: Muslim Men Die for Them, Muslim Women Envy Them

Last month, when the battle for Mosul began, Islamic State “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reportedly promised four extra Houris (supernatural, celestial women designed for sexual purposes) – atop the other 72 promised by the prophet Muhammad – to all jihadis who die (are “martyred”) fighting the infidel forces, according to Arabic media accounts.

Al-Baghdadi did this during an extra-“fiery” sermon wherein he recounted 15 hadiths and three stories dealing with the Houris in the context of the original Muslim conquest of Mosul, circa 637, at the hands of Muhammad’s companions (the sahahba).  After promising his followers that “blood will run like rivers in the [forthcoming] battle,” al-Baghdadi declared: “All, without exception, will enter paradise as martyrs.  Moreover, you will enter paradise with four more Houris than other martyrs.  For just as you stand by me now, so will they stand by you, or under you, or above you, so that you might forget what will happen to you by way of violence, death, and degradation in this war.”

While it is easy to dismiss this report as a hoax (among other things, it doesn’t explain why al-Baghdadi thinks they will get four more heavenly concubines), the problem is that Islam – from its history and doctrines to the exhortation of its leaders, from Muhammad to al-Baghdadi – is full of stories and enticements concerning the Houris.

Here, for instance, is an authentic hadith – a statement attributed to Muhammad that mainstream Islam acknowledges as true – which all jihadi organizations (including ISIS) regularly invoke:

The martyr is special to Allah. He is forgiven from the first drop of blood [that he sheds]. He sees his throne in paradise[.] … He will wed the Houris [aka “voluptuous women“] and will not know the torments of the grave and safeguards against the greater horror [hell]. Fixed atop his head will be a crown of honor, a ruby that is greater than the world and all it contains. And he will copulate with seventy-two Houris.  (Source: The Al Qaeda Reader, p.143).

The histories of the conquest of Mesopotamia and Syria are in fact full of anecdotes of Muslims throwing themselves into the fray and rushing to death’s embrace because they believed that doing so would rush them to the warm embraces of the heavenly sex slaves.  Here are some anecdotes from al-Waqidi’s account of the battle of Yarmuk in Syria (636), which took place right around the same time as the conquest for Mosul, and which also pitted smaller Muslim forces against much greater infidel forces (in this case, Christian Byzantine):

  • As one Muslim captain searched for his nephew, Suwayed, in a field of Muslim corpses, he found him dying on the ground.   When the man came into the vision of the fallen youth, Suwayed began to cry.  He explained that, after being speared by a Byzantine, “something amazing began to happen to me: the Houris are standing beside me, awaiting my soul’s departure.”
  • A jihadi reported that he came upon a fallen comrade in a strange posture: “I saw him smitten on the ground, and I watched as he lifted his fingers to the sky. I understood he was rejoicing, for he saw the Houris.”
  • While waving his standard, another Muslim battalion leader told his men that a furious rush against the “Christian dogs” is synonymous with a “rush to the embraces of the Houris.”

Obsession over the Houris is not limited to arcane Islamic texts or ISIS (“which has nothing to do with Islam“).  Over the years I have watched numerous videos of Muslim men discussing their excitement at the prospect of dying in the jihad and being rushed to the embraces of the supernatural celestial women.  For an idea of how pervasive the Houri is in Islam, consider its impact on Muslim women, as demonstrated in a video of a Muslim cleric taking and answering questions via phone calls.  A woman called in expressing outrage at the Houris, saying she would be driven “mad with jealousy” seeing her husband copulating with these supernaturally beautiful women all day in heaven.

The cleric responded telling her that “when you enter paradise, Allah will remove the jealousy from your heart.  And have no fear, for you will lord over the Houris and be their queen.”  Still apprehensive, the Muslim wife pleaded: “But must he have the Houris?”  Laughing, the cleric reassured her: “Look, when you enter paradise, you will be more beautiful than the Houris – you will be their mistress.  Okay?  And when you enter paradise, Allah will remove any jealousy or concerns from your heart.”

All this is a reminder that the Muslim mindset and the motivations behind the jihad are many and multifaceted – and even include those who disbelieve in Allah and the afterlife altogether.  As such, Western secular minds would do well to stop projecting their own materialistic paradigms onto jihadis – such as when the Obama administration said that people join ISIS for “a lack of opportunity for jobs” – and start understanding Islam’s own paradigms and motivations on their own terms.
