Yeak, **** Nike.

Fuck them good and hard with a barbed-wire wrapped baseball bat.

With Kaepernick, Nike took a risk, but a safely calculated one: he was just edgy enough to seem countercultural, but mainstream enough to suit their bottom line. In the current anti-Trump climate, he was about as safe a bet as you could make. 
The decision to sign Kaepernick obviously had nothing to do with his sporting profile. He has not played in the NFL since 2016, as he has been unable to find a new team. And yet he was given a contract with Nike that was said to be on par with top-end NFL players. 
Kanter, on the other hand, is in the prime of his sporting career, making millions pursuing his passion. What’s more, his decision to put everything on the line to continue speaking out against the Turkish regime, which has detained over 170,000 of his fellow citizens in recent years, showed precisely the kind of bravery Nike is claiming to champion. 
While the trend for using social-justice issues to promote products is nothing new, there has certainly been a wave recently of preachy politically charged commercials. In this age of virtue-signalling, companies are trying to imbue their products with a sense of moral superiority. But Kanter’s story shows that campaigns like Kaepernick’s have nothing to do with principle.

Nike's politics are like their shoes - flashy, with little substance and no support.

It's been a week

So let's be blunt.  George HW Bush might have been a Navy Hero, and a decent man.  But he was a horrible president.

Not only did he—read my lips—betray the legacy of Ronald Reagan in his electorally fatal decision to welsh on his “no new taxes” pledge, not only did he cut the legs out from under the Reagan Revolution by calling for a “kinder, gentler America,” but he also egregiously mishandled the Gipper’s most important legacy: the defeat of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War.

Years ago I did a list of America's ten worst Presidents.  I put Bush Sr. at #9.  He was the perfect model of the Republican establishment.  Read the whole article.  I can't argue with a bit of it.


Dunno if I've thrown this one against the wall yet....

Here's something to piss off the SJW NPCs

It's a wintertime classic.  Always will be.

Light Blogging Ahead

This weekend is going to be busy.  So I might through up a couple of posts but nothing serious. 

Talk amongst yourselves.

A corrupt, Soros-funded Democrat from Michigan?

And she worships a pedophile prophet?  Business as usual, I guess.

I do believe this is the same thoroughly corrupt woman who ran away from Laura Loomer.

And we all knew it

GOP "leadership" (that would be the backstabbing twatwaffle known as Paul Ryan) blocked Trump's reform bill last summer.

The GOP leadership let the House immigration reform die in June by allowing a critical bloc of GOP legislators to split their votes between two rival reform bills, said Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the retiring chairman of the House committee on the judiciary. 
“The strategy of having two options really let people have an off-ramp — they could vote for the more conservative bill and against the other, or vote for the second bill and not the first,” Goodlatte said, adding: 
That is just not a good strategy and I complained about it at the time. I said ‘You’ve got to narrow this down to one bill and then work really hard to get the members to vote for that one bill.’ 
Goodlatte’s statement matches the June statement by Rep. Jim Jordan, who said: “If our leadership had put the same whip effort behind that immigration legislation, Chairman Goodlatte’s legislation, it would have passed.” 

Tell me again about how Trump is the reason the GOP lost the House.  Go ahead.  Pull the other one, it's got bells on it.

Retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan made the decision to create the rival bill that blocked Goodlatte’s bill. 
On November 30, Ryan told an interviewer that he preferred the second bill, which he credited to Florida GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo. 
The Curbelo bill was drafted when Ryan exploited a pro-amnesty push by Curbelo and other business-first GOP legislators to push an amnesty for younger “DACA” illegals. Ryan blocked the amnesty push by crafting a pro-business “Goodlatte II” bill to sink Goodlatte’s bill.

If the GOP actually followed the principles it claims to have, we would control both Congress and the White House, forever.  But voters are faced with a choice - do they want to vote for a bunch of Anti-American National Socialist shitheels who are trying to destroy America (Democrats), or do they want to vote for a bunch of big-government Democrats-in-everything-but-name who lie about their intentions every single day in order to get elected (Republicans)?  Most folks are going to go with the people who are open about their intentions, because it's easier to resist someone who's frank about their hatred for this country.  GOP voters were tired of pulling knives out of their back, and they were sick and tired of Paul Fucking Ryan and the rest of the GOP establishment putting them there.

I hate the Democrat Party for being anti-American marxists, and I hate the Republican Party for being a bunch of backstabbing traitors.  That's why I voted for Donald Trump.  That's why I'll vote for him in 2020 if he runs.  And if he doesn't run, I'll vote for someone else who will make the GOP scream in anger.  Because then maybe they'll begin to have a small taste of the absolute rage I feel every time I see the GOP betray it's base.  Which is a daily occurrence, at this point.

Donald Trump didn't lose the House.  The GOP lost the House by shitting all over their voters ONCE AGAIN.  And they might lose the Senate next time too.

And they wonder why they lost the House

Because they sell out the base while rolling over for the Democrats.  Because they are, at heart, Democrats, who only mouth conservative platitudes in order to get elected, while returning to their native state once they get to D.C.

Sadly, President Bush’s passing provided Republicans with the perfect subterfuge with which to sell us out, even though they were already looking for an avenue to cave. They are planning to pass a two-week continuing resolution that will expire right before Christmas on December 21, knowing full well there will be no appetite for a border fight right before everyone leaves town for the holiday. 
There is no reason we can’t deal with the ultimate government shutdown – the suspension of law and order at our border – while we hold a funeral for President Bush. Republicans know this as well as we do, but they never had any intention of fighting.

If all we're going to get out of the House is Democrat bills, then it should be the Democrats pushing them, eh?

And speaking of priorities, while our immigration priorities are not in the bill, the priorities of cheap labor will eventually be in the omnibus. Congress plans to double the number of H-2B non-agricultural, unskilled seasonal workers that will continue to be a public charge on America. Also, even before legislators pass the omnibus prior to Christmas, they are slipping in extensions of the flood insurance programs and the Violence Against Woman Act (VAWA) even in the two-week stopgap bill. 
Evidently, we can afford to go without border security but we can’t have any lapse in this broken flood insurance program or a special-interest program that uses an important issue to subvert due process.

Paul Ryan was such an utter, feckless failure that I really can't properly describe him in the English language.  Someone recently suggested that there ought to be another layer of hell in Dante's Inferno, for the people who are not only traitors but nation-wreckers.  I agree.  I say that you make the 10th circle of hell the area where Satan shits out the traitors that he's chewed upon; the shat-out traitors spend all of eternity trying to crawl back up Satan's ass to escape the hell, but they keep getting pushed down by more nation-wrecking traitors getting shat out, as well as being pulled back down by their companions, much as they pulled down the good, hard-working Americans with their Marxist idiocy, backstabbing, and lies.  Paul Ryan needs to be the first one shat out, followed by John Boehner, although Boehner is no longer infecting the GOP actively.  He's like shingles; caused by a virus that lays dormant until the wrong time, when it pops out and causes massive pain.

Sadly, it appears that the House will pass a new stopgap bill on Thursday without a recorded vote, so the public won’t even be treated to a debate. What a sad way to end an eight-year run of GOP House control.

I think it's the perfect way to end the eight year GOP run - gutless pathetic fucking backstabbers flipping the bird to their voting base one last time.

Fuck the GOP establishment.  Fuck them all to hell.

Google is Evil. It's Big Brother and Napoleon all wrapped into one.

Yes, I know blogger is part of Google.  Yes, I hope they're logging just how much I hate them because of shit like this.

Eighty-seven individuals searched for the same terms as part of Measuring the Filter Bubble: How Google Is Influencing What You Click, a study conducted by DuckDuckGo, a search engine that aims to protect users’ privacy. Participants searched Google for “gun control,” “immigration,” and “vaccinations,” but despite the identical search terms, the results varied, even when controlling the time and location, according to the study. 
DuckDuckGo also found that logging out of Google or searching in private browsing did not change this variation in Google search results, perhaps suggesting that such tactics don’t actually provide anonymity. 
Regardless of whether the users were logged in, logged out, or using the incognito mode feature, variation remained constant—in some cases, different news sources appeared in the results, while in others, the placement of a result differed drastically between searches, according to the study. The variation was also true of the results that appeared in the Google news and video boxes.

Read it all.  To the vast majority of my readers, this won't be any kind of a shock, it'll be more confirmation of what we already knew:  Google is evil, and it's trying to push you into thinking how it wants you to think.

I never use Google to search.  Ever.  I use DuckDuckGo on my home computer.  I won't ever use Google to do a damn thing, because I don't need Big Brother knowing everything about me.

We don't need any more Welfare leeches

But that's what we're getting.

A majority of “non-citizens,” including those with legal green card rights, are tapping into welfare programs set up to help poor and ailing Americans, a Census Bureau finding that bolsters President Trump’s concern about immigrants costing the nation. 
In a new analysis of the latest numbers, from 2014, 63 percent of non-citizens are using a welfare program, and it grows to 70 percent for those here 10 years or more, confirming another concern that once immigrants tap into welfare, they don’t get off it. 

That means that those people aren't here to "improve their life", unless that means sucking off of the productive citizens of this country like fat ticks on a dog.

“Concern over immigrant welfare use is justified, as households headed by non-citizens use means-tested welfare at high rates. Non-citizens in the data include illegal immigrants, long-term temporary visitors like guest workers, and permanent residents who have not naturalized. While barriers to welfare use exist for these groups, it has not prevented them from making extensive use of the welfare system, often receiving benefits on behalf of U.S.-born children,” added the Washington-based immigration think tank. 
The numbers are huge. The report said that there are 4,684,784 million non-citizen households receiving welfare.
There is absolutely no reason in the world why we should bring people to this country and then pay them to stay here.  Now many vets are refused treatment at the VA?  How many people in this country are homeless because they can't get the psychiatric help they need?  This is insanity.  We need to cut this flow of Welfare leeches off, and we need to do it now. 

Send them back if need be.  But not one more fucking dime should go to people who weren't born here, and came here of their own volition. 

I'm finding myself spending less time on Twitter

And on Gab.  Gab is fine if you want to have a general discussion.  Twitter I only use for the express purpose of finding the anti-American socialists and poking them with a stick.

I think this pretty much sums it up well.

I don't do facebook, I don't do Instagram, I delete any email from LinkedIn the moment it comes across the transom, I've never even contemplated Tinder.  Netflix is for specific shows, and even then it's getting less and less interesting to me.  I do Yelp, because I travel enough that I can't always ask the locals where the best place to eat is located.  And twitter is getting to be nothing more than a Leftist echo chamber.  I will admit that I enjoy triggering Leftists, but even that loses it's appeal

WordPress is censoring people now?

CMBlake6 is gone.  Suspended for violating "terms of service".

This is how the Left wins - by ensuring that only their voices can be heard.
