Thanksgiving – the real story

Thanksgiving The Real Story from Aesop Redux on Vimeo.

A little research into the history of our first (successful) Pilgrims shows us something really interesting.

The first Pilgrims learned the hard way that Socialism and Communism do not work, destroying motivation and morale. Self reliance and reaping the benefits of your own labor (and not others) was the only way they avoided starving to death their first winter. A valuable lesson we should all remember this Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

NPR and the Culture War

As an IT guy in California, I know most of my coworkers are dedicated NPR listeners. That’s just California for you! But is it? These coworkers come from many other places in the US, and from abroad. And they all overwhelmingly listen to NPR.

I fear we are losing the culture war in America today. Obviously our colleges are churning out little self-righteous marxists. Nasty people when they see tou don’t sup their Kooliad.  But IT professionals coming in from India and China seem to get indoctrinated quickly into the NPR culture. Apparently their universities and ours share the same worldview, globalism, and they are addicted to the same thing, NPR, the Heroine of news sources. NPR makes people feel warm, secure, righteous, and “on the right side”. It doesn’t matter if its propaganda and lies. NPR says the “other side” is bad, evil, selfish and greedy. The entire corporate aka mainstream media says the same thing. And they do it all while sounding so educated, upbeat, Good, and Nice (and while sweeping all their Ugly under the rug). Who could disagree? NPR makes listeners addicts without them even realizing they’re being drugged.

The problem is that NPR Liberals – some of whom can be very nice people in their daily lives – are kept clueless.  They go about their lives fat (metaphorically speaking), dumb, and happy.

I have found NPR listeners are ignorant about such ugly facts as Hillary Clinton’s sordid past, current involvement with the likes of Black Lives Matter, taking money from countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar where gays and women are killed and abused. NPR listeners don’t know who Reverend Jeremiah Wright is, nor Bill Ayers, nor even Barry Soetoro!
NPR listeners are mostly ignorant of all this. And I’ve found when told about some Democrat scandal or crime, they shrug everything off with “it happens, everybody does it” or a projection onto the current enemy Republican dujour.

NPR listeners are somehow capable of being offended that Trump had 3 bankruptcies ( he owns over 500 businesses) which is legal (it happens, everybody does it) yet are unconcerned with things they’ve actually heard about, like Hillary Clinton’s illegal insider trading with Whitewater, the horrible Bengazi scandal and coverup, and the Clinton Foundation’s corruption with Pay to Play which leads to things like the fleecing of charity money in Haiti, where Clinton donors got rich off contract deals but nothing got rebuilt there and Haitians are living in horrible conditions still. That’s okay thought because NPR says the Clintons didn’t do anything wrong. And you just don’t disagree wih NPR! Who does that!?!

We know that most politicians are lying sociopaths by default. Is the same true of NPR listeners?

I hope not all NPR listeners are lost causes. The ones that don’t do the immediate shrug off might be open minded and educable. Some lean toward conservative principles even if they don’t identify them as such. Some actually believe in right and wrong, not just self righteousness. Some just don’t know what the alternatives to NPR are. These we have to try to reach.

NPR paints a happy “Libs Good Republicans Bad” worldview complete with lies about how great Obama, Obamacare, the Economy is etc etc. and how evil and uncaring those on the Right are. 

The NPR bubble. I see three types floating in it. 1) Libs who want to protect it at all costs. These are the marxist idealogues who start shrieking their talking points when you dare to disagree. And spew contradictory thoughts like, I’m a liberal slash libertarian, but I like Sanders and Socialism. I guess I’m a communist.” A Libertarian Communist. This is the product of Higher Education brainwashing. 2) The low info types. Well intentioned generally, they think they’re getting so much wonderful information on NPR, they’ve apprently never heard of the word “propaganda” and trust the mainstream medi completely. Nice people, they naturally gravitate to the siren call of NPR. Unaware of the false narratives they are fed daily, they think Obama is “a pretty good president”. They know no alternative, and dutifully wouldn’t leave anyway, buying the lie that radio and people on the Right are evil. The fact that the Right leaning Media self identities as such while the leftist media pushes a con of being objective is lost on them, being just a bit too far into the deep end for them in the pool of thought. 3) Conservative leaning NPR listeners, who haven’t heard of Rush (come on, he’s still the biggest name in conservative media, and IMO would have the most appeal for these educated IT types who are used to their “cultured, intellectual” effetes at NPR) get smacked every which way with false narratives, lies and Red Herrings. 

One of the latter conservatives – a Trump supporter too new to the US to know to keep his mouth shut in CA IT workplaces – told me after the 3rd debate that Trump made a mistake refusing to answer the “will he concede” question. I explained how it would then have just been spun that “Trump conceded last night that he’s already lost the election. Why do we even need to vote?” I could see this new concept getting processed.  Soon I hope to get him off of NPR. For his own sanity.

The idea that govt and corporate media is not objective is not new to folks from China or Russia. But many can’t believe the USA – the country the world looks up to for fair media and election processes – has become so corrupted. They won’t believe it even when given examples. After all, they came here to get away from all that, and NPR is so, so reassuring.

How do we overcome NPR propaganda? I think we need to hold our noses and listen a bit to NPR, and learn what we’re up against. What are the talking points issued, what are the daily spins put on what little news they report? I can’t stand listening to the corporate media and it’s constant slant; but we have to know our enemy. NPR seems to be the heart and soul of the enemy worldview and society. We need to learn how to change hearts, show a different path to optimism and living a good life. Through Nationalism, not NPR/MSM’s Globalism.

Final thoughts. Whom NPR doesn’t reach and medicate, the mainstream media does. Too many are asleep in the Matrix. If this election doesn’t wake them, nothing will. It may be time to break away from them, somehow. I guess we’ll see in 17 days.

Make America Great Again! TRUMP 2016!

What’s Wrong With Hillary? A lot. Part 1

And yes it’s worse stuff than Trump’s Trash Talk from 11 years ago.

About a month from now we’ll be voting for the next POTUS (President of The United States). The top two candidates are Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

We’ve never seen a selection like these two characters before. Who do you choose?

Most people I talk to just want to pick the lesser of two evils. But while we’re getting tons of negative stuff shoved at us by the MSM, social media etc about Donald Trump, Hillary’s past is being ignored.

If you knew Hillary’s past, old and recent, you’d realize she’s a terrible person, probably the most corrupt person ever to run for POTUS.  Again, you won’t hear much about it in the MSM, because (IMHO) they are ardent supporters of Hillary Clinton (former colleagues, big donors, etc).

So I’m going to share a few links and Fun Facts about Mrs. Clinton you might not have known:

War on Women

It’s known the Clinton marriage was a political thing. Hillary allowed Bill to go after women. This goes way back to his days as Governor of Arkansas. A lot of these women may have been willing, but some were not, like Juanita Broaddrick, who maintains she was raped by Bill.

What’s really evil about Hillary is that she not only went along with it, Hillary did “damage control” by attacking, shaming, and intimidating these women to silence them.

From a recent interview:

“And (Hillary) said, ‘I just want you to know how much Bill and I appreciate the things you do for him.’ And I just stood there, Aaron. I was sort of you might say shell-shocked.’

“And she (Hillary) said, ‘Do you understand? Everything you do.’ She tried to take a hold of my hand and I left. I told the girls, ‘I can’t take this. I’m leaving.’ So I immediately left.”

In other accounts Broaddrick continued that this to her, delivered by Hillary with a cold piercing stare, was very scary put her in fear for her life.

Then there’s an older CBS interview, where CBS covered for Hillary, editing out Broaddricks’ accusation. A pretty common practice by our MSM.

Plenty more women, like Monica Lewinsky – a young intern Bill took advantage of. Lewinsky ultimately had to create an anti-bullying campaign to stop the Clinton’s attack machine – lead by Hillary. Linda Trip reports  Assault victims like Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey.

Hillary Clinton is a “coarse, profane political operative … with no moral compass,” according to former White House staffer Linda Tripp, whose workspace was located directly adjacent to the then-first lady’s second floor West Wing office.

Linda Tripp states the person you see in public is very different than the real, behind the scenes Hillary; describes Hillary’s temperament issues like throwing things at Bill, twisting staffers arms in a rage.

You get the idea. These are starting points – and there’s many critical articles too about all these assaults and allegations of assault. Do your own research. If you do you’ll find more evidence of a long trail of Hillary & Bill’s treatment and abuse on women, I guarantee it.

There’s so many more ugly topics too, like her staffers mocking of African American names (yes Hillary you are responsible for what’s acceptable in the workplace you run), Hillary’s praise for mentor and former KKK member Robert Byrd,

... Hillary Kisses KKK “Friend and Mentor” Robert Byrd – TruthFeed

KKK “Exalted Cyclops” and Hillary Mentor Robert Byrd

her hateful treatment of the Secret Service agents that guard her to this day, and consider it a punishment assignment, her involvement with violent anti-police thug organizations like BLM that call for the murder of police officers. BTW guess who the largest national police organization endorses?

We’ll save these for a future post.

Trumps Male Talk

Regarding the Trump dirty talk story that just came out, below is an excellent perspective on it. You know there’s such a thing as Female Talk too. And I’ll wager i n Hillarys case it sounds more like Male Talk.

  1. Bull Durham says:

    For those who make confessions, and make full examinations of one’s life, you know you examine your actions and your words. The words are the words directed at God, or at others.

    Never do you examine “remarks”, common conversations in bars, locker rooms or in brief encounters where bragging is the parlance. First, it is nearly impossible to do and second, it is meaningless minutiae of anyone’s life. Your words about your venal thoughts are not sins. They transgress no one. Normal heterosexual males forever and in every culture speak such things.

    So, he has no sin but lust. And we don’t know whether that was true. He was a braggart by style of life.

    All males talk homeruns when they barely have had a scratch single. Singles become doubles the older you get. Fences are farther for homeruns. Hell, we talk about hits in games that occurred in Little League but tell them like they were high school games. It’s not a lie. It’s not deception. It’s male talk.

    What we have here in this stuff is Male talk.

    I don’t require sainthood in a leader. I require leadership that loves the People and the Country.
    There’s no dead bodies in Trump’s past. There is no failure to respond like Benghazi. There are no foreign regime changes, no armed interventions, no mass bombings for years, no dead soldiers coming home in caskets, no corruption, no perjury,no crimes against humanity, no laughter at dead leaders.

    We know and heard from his lips before and many times that he had done some “not so good” things, and we know all the Evangelicals knew his “sinful” past. Yet, they put him on the path to redemption and walked with him, counseled him.

    Donald Trump is the blessing we prayed for. He came with toughness to endure anything, to stand tall while knowing assassins were out there somewhere trying to kill him. He exposed his life and his family and his business to slander, libel, terrorism and the hot spotlight of Media exposure.

    He’s heroic not immaculate. He is the threat to the evil we abhor in our nation. He could not be pure and know what he knows about the rigged system. He was dipped in the processes. Now he can change what needs to be changed and fix what needs to be fixed and enforce what needs to be enforced.
