Get Woke, Go Broke

Add on to that all the people who will no longer be using Delta Airlines because of their shitty decision to virtue signal to the SJW howler monkeys and their poo-flinging brigade.  Delta fucked up.  Maybe United can get away with it, because they're based out of Chicago and that city doesn't give a shit about the Constitution.  But Atlanta?  In Georgia?  Dude....  that CEO needs to get his ass fired.

Preach it, Sister!

The sheer amount of fuckwittery coming from the gun-ban crowd never ceases to amaze me.

Rule #3

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) fined Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign $14,500 for accepting illegal in-kind foreign contributions from the Australian Labor Party (ALP) during the 2016 elections.  
While volunteering with the Sanders campaign, the Australians engaged in political activities “including encouraging voter attendance at campaign events, recruiting volunteers, canvassing with volunteers, and planning events,” according to the FEC. 
The Sanders campaign “treated the ALP delegates no differently from any other campaign out-of-town volunteers and was aware that they were receiving a stipend from the ALP,” the FEC added. 
The ALP spent $16,140 for the Australians’ flights to the United States and $8,282 for their daily stipends. The FEC determined that amounted to a $24,422 “prohibited in-kind foreign contribution” the Sanders campaign accepted from the ALP.

If a Democrat accuses you of something, you can be damn sure they are doing it themselves.  They always project their sins upon their enemies.

YouTube on the way to banning Conservative channels

They're working in that right now.

“YouTube is targeting conservative channels, saying our commentary is ‘bullying’ yet they allow Southern Poverty Law Center to hunt us like rabbits, strip away our voices like the skin, and grill anyone slightly right of Karl Marx with the term ‘fascist,'” claimed Whitty in an email to Breitbart Tech. “When YouTube or any other large platform targets me, it doesn’t so much scare me. If anything, it just makes me angry and I let that anger motivate me.” 
“I grew up in Berkeley, California, where I was raised by a family of limousine liberals who silenced me my entire life and when I decided to come out of the conservative closet, they exiled me,” she continued. “If I can stand losing my entire family for having a voice, I can handle a few Internet warlords.”

Silicon Valley is entirely Leftist.  Therefore, they are entirely fascist.  Scratch a Democrat, find a dictator.  It shouldn't be too much of a shock when the rabid Leftists of Google start cracking down on dissenting speech, as Leftists do not want to hear any kind of dissent, nor do they allow speech that goes against their ideology if they can prevent it.

I've already signed up with BitChute.  Google can kiss my ass, and I'll dump YouTube in a heartbeat.  I already ignore their search engine, and various other services they have I don't even bother with.  I don't need a bunch of Fascist motherfuckers tracking my data, and I'm done helping Marxist fuckwits make money when all they want to do is destroy my way of life.  Piss on 'em.

The Drugging of the American Boy

You want to talk about a rise in shootings?

"We are pathologizing boyhood," says Ned Hallo-well, a psychiatrist who has been diagnosed with ADHD himself and has cowritten two books about it, Driven to Distraction and Delivered from Distraction. "God bless the women's movement—we needed it—but what's happened is, particularly in schools where most of the teachers are women, there's been a general girlification of elementary school, where any kind of disruptive behavior is sinful. What I call the 'moral diagnosis' gets made: You're bad. Now go get a doctor and get on medication so you'll be good. And that's a real perversion of what ought to happen. Most boys are naturally more restless than most girls, and I would say that's good. But schools want these little goody-goodies who sit still and do what they're told—these robots—and that's just not who boys are."

You don't say?

Years ago, my step-son was diagnosed with a "learning disability".  He couldn't read.  The teachers said he was "slow".  This kid was one of the smartest boys I knew and yet he couldn't read.  So the Mrs. started reading to him at night.  Not any of the boring bullshit forced down kids throats these days, but Harry Potter. 

By the time we got to book two, he was reading on his own.  He had no problem reading.  He had no problem learning.  He was BORED STIFF IN SCHOOL.

One man believes that drugging children's brains is too risky. That until we get a lot closer to achieving a foolproof diagnosis for ADHD, we need to think twice about giving a single pill to a single child. He believes that what is called attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder might in fact be a boy's greatest gift, the gift of energy. And that the best way to treat it is to first teach the boy to control the energy all by himself, because by learning to control it all by himself, a boy can channel that energy to help him succeed. That the responsible thing to do is first to see if there is some problem with the boy's heart—not with the way it pumps blood, but with its ability to show and accept love. The man's name is Howard Glasser, and he is one of those countercultural clinicians who, as American society has become inured to giving psychotropic drugs to kids, has built a practice predicated on opposing the very idea. 
If he were a child today, Glasser would be given a prescription for a stimulant in about five minutes. Little Howie was a wired kid. Obstreperous. But good. A good kid. And when he grew up and became a family therapist—he has applied to earn his doctorate in education from Harvard starting this fall—he created a way of dealing with wired, obstreperous, uncontrollable kids who are, beneath all that, good. And he believes all of them are good. 
He calls the method the Nurtured Heart Approach, and it seems simple on the surface: You nurture the child's heart. If a child is hyperactive and defiant and has trouble listening and concentrating, Glasser feels it is our responsibility as a society—as grown-ups—to do everything we can for a child's heart before we start adding chemicals to his brain, because what if his brain is fine? What if the diagnosis isn't right? And even if it is, what if something else works?
If ADHD had been a thing when I was growing up, I'd be doped up to the gills by the school system to ensure that I would be a "good boy".  I hated school.  Never paid attention, other than in my various music classes.  Tore-assed through the countryside of North Idaho whenever I could.  I guarantee that if my teachers could have doped me up on some ADHD drug, they'd have done so in a red-hot minute.  Thank God that didn't happen.  But it's happening to boys all over this country.  And it's a load of horse shit.  You want to talk school shootings?  What in the hell do you think is going to happen when you're doping boys up with Schedule II drugs from the time they enter the school system to the time they leave it?  What in the HELL do you think is going to happen when you have a kid on drugs that affect dopamine for over a decade, and then turn them loose?

I'm of the opinion that the biggest problem kids have these days is the public school system.  The one-size-fits-all, mediocrity-shall-be-enforced, publik skool sistim that has ruined learning for generations of children in this country.  And I'm willing to bet that if we stopped shoving our kids into this meat grinder of misery, we might be able to treat a huge number of ADHD cases without drugs.

But what do I know.  I'm just a guy who hates sitting still.

Dear Never Trumpers

If you can't come around now, and accept the fact that Donald Trump has actually be a damn good president so far...  well, then you should just join the Democrats and stop pretending.

Thomas Binion, director of congressional and executive branch relations at Heritage, said that Trump has implemented 64 percent of the “unique policy recommendations” from the group. 

At this stage of his presidency, Reagan had completed 49 percent of the Heritage policy recommendations. 
“We’re blown away,” Binion said in an interview. Trump, he said, “is very active, very conservative, and very effective.” 
What’s more, he said, Trump hasn’t just focused on one agenda area, but he and his team has pushed through administrative moves on foreign policy, deregulation, immigration, tax reform and health care, moves often ignored by the media. 
“It is a huge volume that his administration has worked on and it is a huge spectrum of issues,” said Binion.

First and foremost, Hillary Clinton is not, nor will she ever be, President.  Huge win.  Massive win for the country and for people who love freedom.

Second - Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch.  A home-run, that will pay dividends for decades.

Those two things were worth electing Trump.  Now add in the huge (sorry, YUUUUUUUUUUGE) list of accomplishments that would never, ever have happened with the GOPe choices of Jeb, or Kasich, or Christie.  Trump got it done.

All the never-Trumpers currently falling onto their fainting couches are either two stupid and ignorant to understand that, or they were lying about their conservative principals from the word "Go".  Either option is plausible.

People have observed Sheriff Israel, the Coward of Broward County

And found him lacking.  Here's what another Sheriff has put out in response to the complete and total clusterfuck in Broward County:

“We do not stage and wait for SWAT, we do not take cover in a parking lot, and we do not wait for another agency,” Sheriff Tracy Murphree wrote. “We go in and do our duty. We go in to engage and stop the shooter and save lives.” 
“If for any reason you cannot follow this directive, please inform your supervisor and we will work to get you re-assigned,”
Apparently, The Denton County Sheriff wanted to make sure that his deputies didn't get any ideas following the Coward of Broward County's debacle.  And maybe, just maybe, he wanted to make a point that the Sheriff of a county is supposed to take responsibility for their actions, not run and hide and blame the NRA, gun-owning moms, law-abiding citizens and small dogs.

Partnerships only work if everybody pulls together

And in the same direction.

So the Germans have 95 operable tanks at any given time and less than 200 working Armored Personnel Carriers. Their Air Force is in serious trouble. They have roughly forty operable fighter jets, a good portion of which are already committed to operations around Turkey and Syria. 
And then there’s the Navy. Shall we talk about the German submarine force? It’s going to be a short discussion. Coming into this winter they had one (!) operable submarine. Sadly, that one grounded on the rocks a few months ago so their total fleet of subs currently stands at… zero. 
How did things get to this point? A recent interview with the German Defense Minister included some choice quotes. One of them was the explanation that Germany hasn’t paid as much attention to the military because “we are surrounded by friends.” The alternate and somewhat more dismal explanation is, “because we just don’t care.”
In my very short time in Kabul, I saw lots of flags at the main airport.  French and Belgium and Australian and Greek and so on and so forth.

Out at Camp Phoenix, it was Armenians and Bulgarians.

Out in FOBs away from the comforts and political safety of the main base in Kabul, it was....  just Americans.

The only real reason we have our NATO allies helping us out in Afghanistan is to use them as a political fig leaf.  "See, what we're doing is right and good and just!  Look at all the people we have helping us!"  Except we don't really have people helping us, do we?  We have "allies" that can't field a force.  We have allies that cannot actually get their troops from one theater to another, and moreover, they do not care that they lack this ability, because the US of A has always been doing the heavy lifting so why should they bother?

I remember when NATO intervened in Kosovo, and the French had to hire civilian ferries to move it's troops because they didn't actually possess the watercraft needed to move troops and supplies up a river.  Or up anywhere.

After the tsunami in Indonesia, it was a US carrier group that every other country in the world used as a floating HQ.  Of course, they all wanted to rub elbows with the political figures that would allow them the most opportunity for graft, because that's what the rest of the world does while America busts its ass trying to fix shit.

If Germany cannot field a military, then they are worthless as a NATO ally.  They should either do their damn job, or we should dump them.

Why nobody trusts the media

Or military "experts".

A)  The fact that this raging douche-nozzle was a Lieutenant General in the US Army explains quite a bit about the problems the Army is currently facing.

B)  The AR-15 was never used by the US military in any capacity.

C)  There is no such thing as "full semi-auto". 

And in my opinion, as well as many other military members, the 5.56mm round is under-powered, weak, ineffective, and pathetic.  There are reasons people have been calling for a bigger round ever since I knew what ballistics were, and that's *mumblemumble* decades now.  The experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan have not made those calls any softer.

In short, this general got used by CNN like a condom, and he's worth just about as much as a used prophylactic after everything is said and done.

Immigration and War

A 15 minute lecture on BitChute.  I don't know how to embed the video, or perhaps BitChute doesn't offer that just yet.

Also, BitChute - an alternative to YouTube, and the liberal fascist fuckheads at Google.  Yay!

Sorry for the short posts lately - been busy.

There's a woodsy kind of smell in the air.

Tons of rain the past couple of days.  Tons more coming up.  But today was sunny, and the forests around the house are giving off a delightful aroma.  It's the kind that says "SPRING IS HERE, BITCHES!"

I'm left to wonder what it will smell like in July when Summer is flogging me senseless.  Probably like Satan's jock-strap, or something.
